ATMI workers march to CEO residence By Jason Crane A group of more than 40 marchers, including ATMI Precast workers and other groups, went on a walking rally in Aurora last Sunday. Other groups included Chicago Workers’ Collaborative, members of Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice a few Aurora area union members and citizens. They spent a couple of hours in the march to the residence of ATMI Precast president and CEO Jim Armbruster. It was not the first march for ATMI workers and several worker rights’ groups and concerned citizens, but the first march to Jim Armbruster’s residence. Late last Fall there was a march and a couple of rallies outside of ATMI Precast after contract negotiations See page 11

More than a choice between only two views, presumptions Either, or. A choice of one or the other is a mindset which does not allow anyone to stray from making a choice beyond one set or the other. There is no middle ground in that way of thinking. Rigid thinking seldom allows for anything new to be folded into a mindset or a lifestyle. It excludes the delights of finding something untried and possibly exciting and different. Politics, music, art, even a choice in friends can be sidetracked by thinking there are only two choices. Good or bad, right or wrong, risk or riskfree, are choices we can face each day. Will we try something new to expand our horizons? If all we try is something new, we surrender the firm, steady, trusted in our lives. What is obvious is that we are all built a little differently. Between life experiences and basic set of beliefs and personality, two individuals can look at the same thing and come up with different conclusions and justify the rationale. Differences can work if we all have the mindset that others do not have to agree with us and we do not have to agree with them. Respecting differences in others is paramount to understanding. Basic understanding is paramount to respecting others and respecting ourselves. It is when we do not take the time to understand that problems arise. Preconceived notions and abrupt changes make for good comedy. For those who can recall the 1970s and 1980s Archie Bunker on All in the Family had preconceived thoughts and continually was forced to abruptly change course because he was in

Archie nearly always was left with a dropped-jaw over his incorrect presumptions. Have we become smarter with our presumptions or are they merely less visible than in the 1970s and 1980s? We would do well to continually check our thoughts and not be so certain about how we view other individuals and how we view other situations. We do not want to become a part of a comedy routine that ignores fresh thinking.

Monsanto and FDA involved in a lack of fairness, collusion Becky Bond, political director of CREDO and allies at Food Democracy Now! are calling on the president Barack Obama to fire Monsanto's Michael Taylor from the FDA. Midwestern farmers will play an important symbolic role in president Obama's reelection campaign. Bond said: “We need to let the president know that we stand with small farmers and not Monsanto! Why is a former Monsanto lobbyist currently serving as the FDA's food safety czar waging war on small dairy farms that produce fresh milk? “While factory farm operators are getting away with serious food safety violations, raw milk dairy farmers and distributors across the country have been subjected to armed raids and hauled away in handcuffs. “The Food and Drug Administration is running sting operations followed by guns-drawn raids usually reserved for terrorists and drug lords as part of a crackdown on unpasteurized milk. Meanwhile, the FDA is letting the highly consolidated

Donna Crane industrial meat and factory farm industry off the hook despite growing problems. “Not surprisingly, the person responsible for prioritizing armed raids on small dairies over holding agribusiness accountable is a former Monsanto attorney and chief super lobbyist. Monsanto's Michael Taylor is the second highest-ranking official at the FDA, and as food safety czar is responsible for implementing the day-to-day policies that govern the food safety laws for the U.S.. “Whether or not you think unpasteurized milk is a good idea, it's clear that the FDA under Michael Taylor has its priorities wrong. When industrial agribusiness sickens thousands of people, it's absurd for the FDA to target Amish farmers producing fresh milk, much less to engage in guns drawn enforcement raids. CREDO supports the regulation of raw milk dairies. However, we believe that prioritizing raids on Amish dairies above holding agribusiness accountable for endangering the health of millions, is just plain wrong. “Michael Taylor seems focused on entirely the wrong aspects of food safety enforcement. Rather than making sure that food safety inspections are done properly at our nation's largest factory farms, where antibiotic resistance has run amuck, Taylor has been leading a departmental crusade against small raw milk dairy producers. So far several dairy farmers have been subject to a year-long undercover sting operation from the East Coast to California. “Incredibly, Michael Taylor and FDA inspectors have not arrested or fined the Iowa agribusiness man, Jack DeCoster, who was wholly responsible for the more than 500 million eggs that were recalled in 2010 salmonella-tainted egg recall. Though this industrial agribusinessman endangered the health of millions, Michael Taylor thinks Amish farmers

producing fresh milk are more deserving targets of his FDA enforcement raids with guns drawn. “While CREDO recognizes the inherent risks that are involved in food production, it's time that the U.S. government start responsibly looking into the real origins of our nation's largest food safety recalls and stop harassing family farmers trying to survive in the excessively consolidated food and agricultural sectors,” Bond wrote. “The connections between Monsanto and the FDA are very alarming, many highly influential politicians have worked for and/or have ties with Monsanto. We are told that the FDA can be trusted but when you look at the facts they prove they can't, when it comes to Monsanto. Look at this: Clarence Thomas, prior to being the Supreme Court Judge who put George W. Bush in office, Clarence Thomas was Monsanto's lawyer; Anne Veneman, Former U.S. secretary of Agriculture Anne Veneman was on the Board of Directors of Monsanto's Calgene Corporation; Donald Rumsfeld secretary of Defense (Department) was on the board of directors of Monsanto's Searle pharmaceuticals; Tommy Thompson former U.S. secretary of Health (Department) received $50,000 in donations from Monsanto during his winning campaign for Wisconsin's governor and the two congressmen receiving the most donations from Monsanto during the 2000 election were Larry Combest (former chairman of the House Agricultural Committee) and Missouri Senate candidate John Ashcroft is attorney general. “In order for the FDA to determine if Monsanto's growth hormones were safe or not, Monsanto was required to submit a scientific report on that topic. Margaret Miller, one of Monsanto's researchers put the report together. Shortly before the report submission, Miller left Monsanto and was hired by the FDA. Her first job for the FDA was to determine whether or not to approve the report she wrote for Monsanto. In short, Monsanto approved its own report. “Assisting Miller was another former Monsanto researcher, Susan Sechen. Deciding whether or not rBGH-derived milk should be labeled fell under the jurisdiction of another FDA official, Michael Taylor, who previously worked as a lawyer for Monsanto.”

Belfast Northern Ireland memoir to be released soon When I arrived in Belfast, Northern Ireland, 1979, I did not know a soul. Inch by inch, person by person, I spread my contacts out like so many awkward shoots of a growing tree. So that by February 1980, I had talked with more than 400 individuals. Hardly a person got out of my sight without providing other names of persons to contact. I wanted to meet with those who might have something to say about the Troubles and daily life in Belfast. A chance meeting at the student union at Queen’s University resulted in five interviews with recently released Long Kesh prisoners. I would meet with them at the Sinn Finn Headquarters on Falls Road. Two teachers at Inst provided five names additionally. An Irish poet offered books on the topic. My neighbor, the very proper Mrs. Adamson, put me in contact with the Rev. Lapsley of Fisherwick Prebyterian Church, who put me in contact with Diana Carson, who arranged two Thanksgivings dinners that I was invited to. Trying to find a typewriter to rent, I was offered a machine to use until December by

a stranger named Sandra, whose kindness I shall always remember. I was typing the Belfast manuscript on a portable Smith-Corona typewriter so when I returned to the States, I had to retype it in its entirety, 426 pages! There was no dearth of kindness in the North of Ireland. I was a stranger and they invited me into their homes and to their tables to break bread with them with a generosity that was appreciated. In what other city could you admire two golden lampposts and be invited inside by the Lord Mayor’s wife for tea and donuts? Such good and decent and honourable people deserve jobs, better living conditions, and a climate of peace. Deprivation. It can be seen on Falls Road in West Belfast, eyes too old for their years, staring at me because I have on mittens and a woolen hat and they have neither. Three boys finding a potato on the street and breaking it open with the heel of their boots so that all three could have a portion of that cold potato. Generations of hunger and the inevitable frustration of living hand-to-mouth have left their marks on today’s youth of Florence Place and Fleetwood Street, Crumlin Road. It is the hero who goes to Long Kesh prison and is stripped naked and shivers in the Irish Winter air for the Cause. He thinks. It is the hero who will be remembered up the Shankill when he is incarcerJo Fredell Higgins was in Belfast, Northern Ireland for one year. Submitted photo

ated in the H blocks of Long Kesh for attempting murder. He thinks. There was a St. Valentine’s Dress Ball at the Royal Ascot Road House, Carryduff and at Knockbreda Parish the Dramatic Society presented “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” I attended a celebration in honour of St. Valentine at the St. John’s Presbyterian Memorial Hall the Saturday following. Subscription, including supper of baked potato, pork Hawaiian, trifle, shortbread hearts and tea or coffee was one pound fifty pence ($3) Tickets requested that patrons “Dress Elegant” and noted that carriages would call at 11 p.m. to take them home. Small bouquets of snowdrops and carnations were on each table. It was a group of older persons with money and I witnessed the mink coats and Clairoled hair, black dinner jackets, long skirts, and gold jewelry. A programme and dancing followed dinner with romantic songs and verse. Belfast washed her windows. High on ladders, the townspeople scrubbed and washed and wiped clean the dirt from this industrial city. I passed some daffodils already blooming on University Street. At the Cook’s Shop on Botanic Avenue, I purchased blueberry muffin mix and two Easter eggs. British soldiers passed me with rifles ready, two in front, two looking backward, and two across the street. Saracens lumbered up Malone Road. Make no mistake about it, there was a war going on. This historic memoir with photographs of my year in Belfast will be released by Tate Publishing in the Spring. “Souls: A Portrait of Belfast. A Memoir” will tell the story of that remarkable year in the lives of the Irish people. It will be available on Amazon.com, at the Tate website, and at other retail markets. The signature signing will be held during Irishfest 2012 Peoria at the Peoria Riverfront.

Real facts important in proposed American Rights bill By Nick Richards, Citizens and Legislative Committee, chairman Dusty McCance, vice president, United Auto Workers Local 145 (A team report) Brothers and sisters; In case you missed it during the Super Bowl, there was an ad run during the game in which lobbyist Rick Berman posed as a union mechanic. The point of this ad is to get you to believe that only 10% of union members have a chance to vote to be union. The ad is being run by a group called the Center for Union Facts. Their objective is to get you to support a bill called American Rights Act.

Indiana 23rd state to pass right-to-work law

By John Bogucki, president, and Jim Myer, bargaining chairman United Auto Workers Local 2096 Region 4 (A team report) By membership action the April and May membership meetings have been moved back one week. The April membership meeting has been moved to April 15 because of Easter Sunday and the May membership meeting has been moved to May 20, because of Mother’s Day. Again we apologize for any inconvenience. By-laws changes The two by-laws changes passed. We will be summiting them to the International Union for approval. Indiana right-to-work; what, why, and where Indiana governor Mitch Daniels signed into law right-to-work legislation February 1, to make Indiana the 23rd state to have this type of anti-union law. Outside the governors' office and throughout the Indiana Capitol were thousands of protestors wanting their voice to be heard and to stop this legislation from being signed into law, This did not happen. Right-to-work is now the law of the land in Indiana! What is right-to-work? They always try and make anti-union legislation sound appealing. The words "right to work" by themselves sound great, after all we should all be able to have the right to work so as to provide the necessities of life as well as a few luxuries for our families. However, in the context of labor law right-to-work is and always will mean simply union-busting. In right-to-work states, workers decide individually whether or not to join or support a union, however, the union is still required by law to represent the non-union employees, free riders. This in itself results in decreases in the union’s ability to negotiate contracts, decreases in wages, decreases in health and safety rules, decreases in pensions, health benefits. According to the Economic Policy Institute, wages in right-to-work states are 3.2% lower than in non-right to-work states, and per the government Bureau of Labor Statistics, the rate of workplace deaths are 51% higher in right-to-work states. The so-called free riders in these states want all the union has to offer, but want no part of being in the union or paying dues. This in itself results in lower morale, increased employee relation problems, increased employee to employee problems, extra stress related issues pertaining to our workplaces. Why right-to-work? Simply put, there are powerful people in this country who are driven by power and greed and for the needs of their own agendas they want to silence us as a union. They are astute enough to realize they cannot beat us when we are unified. That is why they have purchased their influence into the State Assembly houses, the halls of Congress, and yes in some instances the U.S. presidency. Divided we fall, united we stand. This is why contributing to your Local V-Cap Fund is so important. It is how we as a union fight these powerful people and their greedy agendas. The political powers to be know that we as a union represent hundreds of thousand of potential votes, and that we can control their future and destiny through our strength as one. Where is right-to-work? currently there are 23 states and the U.S. territory of Guam that have right-to-work laws. In Illinois so far we have thwarted any and all attempts to allow this legislation, although it was attempted in the mid 1990s. With all due respect to our brothers and sisters in Indiana, it is commendable that thousands were in attendance at the Indiana Capitol in protest of

the signing into law of this legislation, but, let us not wait till the right-to-work legislation is on the governor’s desk for his signature. The time to act is now! Support your V-Cap fund and be united as one! We must for our future and our destiny! Denny Drnjevic, UAW 2488 retiree Vice chairman Downstate Illinois CAP Council Shift preference cards With rumors of us going back to three shifts, we still have members who don’t have there shift preference card filled out, without it you have no preference. They can put you any where. It’s important that you have your shift preference cards filled out right. This card tells the Company what shift you prefer in case of a reduction in work force. If you haven’t filled one out, or you want to update yours, asks your supervisor for one. This card must be on According to the Economic Policy Institute, wages in right-to-work states are 3.2% lower than in non-right to-work states....

record for at least 40 calendar days prior to it being in force. Drug testing We know we had this article in the previous issue of The Voice, but thought it was important enough to repeat. Now the drug testing has started on the random and reasonable suspicion testing. Here are some of the guidelines. This is not a complete list of the guidelines. You will need to read Letter of Agreement No. 32 for the complete list. • Random testing positive fir individuals greater than two years of seniority will be placed on disciplinary suspension for 30 days and will be required to successfully complete all recommended treatment at the Company’s expense. • Less than two years of seniority will be discharged for not in compliance. Not in compliance as a result of any reasonable suspicion testing is: • Will be discharged. Employees will have one opportunity for treatment at the Company’s expense, under the terms of a Last Chance Agreement. While on treatment you will be on disciplinary suspension pending successful completion of the program. You will be required to report to the EAP within three work days of being notified of non-compliance of drug test on either Random or Reasonable Drug Testing. Letter of Agreement No. 32 will utilize thresholds and collection procedures consistent with the Department of Transportation. Employees who refuse to participate in testing will be subject to discharge. As long as you have not been selected for random or reasonable suspicion testing this process will have no impact on an employee who voluntarily presents themselves to the EAP or Company medical services for assistance with a drug or alcohol problem. Drug testing representation Let’s talk about representation during the drug testing process. Drug testing on a random drug test the employee must ask for representation. This representation will be provided to you after the test has been completed. At this time the Company will provide representation to the employee before the drug test takes place. On a reasonable suspicion the first thing the Company is going to do is evaluate the employee for a medical condition. If the employee passes the medical exam, then he or she will proceed with the drug test. On a drug test that starts on your shift and then goes past the employee’s shift you will be paid for all time spent in testing. Once you start the test

you need to complete the test or you will be subject to discharge. Once an employee fails a breath test or does a drop for the drug test you will be sent home. At this point we say you should be given representation before you are sent home as provided by in 5.5 in the Central Agreement, but the Company disagrees with it. So make sure you ask for your union representative. Benefits If you have any questions please call the hall at 815-842-3289. Please don’t call other UAW locals. They have their own problems. We know the officers are only part-time, but we try to do the best we can. Absent or AWOL We are having problems with some members being AWOL. The following is what you have to do in order not to get caught up in an AWOL situation. You have to call in and have approval to be absent from work. AWOL is when an employee is absent from work for more than three consecutive days without proper notice and approval. You will be considered absent without leave and subject to termination of employment. Employees’ responsibilities: • To call into the absent hotline; • Notify their supervisors or the medical department to obtain approval for any absences of three or more consecutive days. It’s important to follow these guidelines. If you need a doctor’s excuse, make sure it says that you are unable to work because of illness or injury, with the proper dates on it. Union representation If for any reason you are called to a meeting with your supervisor, superintendent, or H.R. representative ask for union representation! This applies for supplemental employees, as well. If you are denied union representation, contact the Union Hall A.S.A.P. at 815-842-3289, and give us your details. Thanks. Contact the Union Hall If you are on medical, Worker’s Compensation, family leave, military duty, or if you recently have retired or separated, please contact the dues office with this information. It will be of great assistance to the Local in order to keep our records accurate and current. It will help keep records for you, if needed. If you are sick you need to contact your supervisor. Do not just use the call-in system at Caterpillar. It takes notification and approval. Hall hours We will not always be able to man the Union Hall five days per week. In an effort to ensure someone is at the hall for first shift we will be manning the hall before first shift each Wednesday and after first shift each Monday. We will try to post the hours in The Voice every week. If no one is at the Union Hall, please leave a message. We will be checking messages continuously. We are sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you! • Monday, Feb. 20, Larry Stine, 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. • Tuesday, Feb. 21, leave a message. • Wednesday, Feb. 22, Jim Myer, 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. • Thursday, Feb. 23, John Bogucki, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. • Friday, Feb. 24, leave a message. • Weekends, leave a message. • Monday, Feb. 27, John Bogucki, 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. • Tuesday, Feb. 28, Jim Myer, 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m..

Home-made household remedies still vital for cures First of two parts Years ago our mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers used many homemade remedies to treat illnesses. Today, when we have a medical problem, even a minor problem, we go to the drug store or our medical doctor for help. There is plenty of help to be found because drug companies keep coming out with one miracle cure after another, or at least that is what they promise. It amazes me that along with the promise of these marvelous cures when companies are required to list on labels the negative side effects often sound worse than the medications’ intended cure. But we, as consumers see the happy faces in the commercials and we want to feel good. In the November-December edition of “The Share Guide Holistic Health E-news letter,” Julie Bruton-Seal has an article entitled: Kitchen Medicine Rediscovering Household Remedies for Common Ailments. Bruton-Seal writes: “We believe it is part of what might be called a medicinal intelligence to seek to become more aware of the potential health value of food and food-related products stored, but often ignored in our kitchens. “In times past, kitchen medicine was practiced by every housewife. She may not have used the term or even thought about it much, but she would have learned how to treat her family for every-day ailments and minor emergencies with what she had to hand. We think it is time to revive this disappearing tradition of using your pantry as your pharmacy. We believe it is part of what might be called a ‘medicinal intelligence’ to seek to become more aware of the potential health value of food and food-related products stored, but often ignored in our kitchens. The following are but a few examples of the wealth of healing items in your fridge or pantry that can meet your medicinal needs. “Lemons: Everybody is aware that lemon is a remedy to take when a cold looms, its high vitamin C improving resistance to respiratory infection, as well as cutting mucus. Lemon is equally protective for stomach infections, poor circulation, and, especially, arteriosclerosis. Gargling diluted lemon juice is a zingy way to treat a sore throat. What makes lemon particularly valuable is that, despite being a source of citric acid and the acidic vitamin C, once lemon juice is digested its action is alkalizing for the body. This is why it is used for treating rheumatic conditions that are typified by overacidity. Lemon strongly reinforces the body in those areas that scurvy weakens. So it strengthens the gums, is healing for mouth ulcers, and is a remedy for whitening the teeth; it reinforces connective tissue and blood vessel walls; it supports the immune system and the liver. Its sourness helps stimulate bile and enhances appetite. This last quality makes lemon good for treating anorexia, nausea, and morning and travel sickness. “Lemon & Sage Tea, recommended for: Coughs, colds, sore throat, and bronchitis. Steep

in two cups boiling water for 15 minutes: two teaspoons grated organic lemon rind, one teaspoon sage leaf, one teaspoon thyme leaf. Strain and add the juice of half a lemon, and honey to taste. Take two or three times a day, hot or cold. “Thyme: Thyme's original Greek name meant both strength and cleansing. As an herbal medicine it embodies both qualities, especially in treating the respiratory and digestive systems, accompanied by a sweetness and uplifting aroma that are themselves healing and restorative. Thyme is a small Mediterranean herb with hidden depths. Thyme remains a powerful medicinal presence in western herbalism. Thyme's strength relates to thymol, its main essential oil, which is 20 times stronger than phenol (carbolic), the standard medical antiseptic. Thymol was first isolated in Germany in 1725 and has been in pharmaceutical use ever since. Thyme's rich chemistry includes tannins and phenols that make it bitter medicinally, but it also contains an uplifting sweetness that can be tasted and smelled. “Thyme Cough Syrup, recommended for: Colds, fevers, antiseptic, sore throat, asthma. Mix two parts dried thyme, one part fennel, one part licorice, and part poppy seed. Bring these to a boil in a pan of water, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Strain off the herbs and continue simmering until the liquid is reduced by at least a half and a syrup has formed. Use for sore throat, deep coughs, or asthma. “Thyme Vinegar: Pick enough fresh thyme to fill

a jar (use at least a one-pound size); crush the herb in a mortar. Put into the jar and cover with wine, cider, or fruit vinegar. Keep closed jar in a sunny spot for at least a month, then strain off the vinegar. The vinegar is good for headaches (rubbed onto temples and swallowed in small amounts), for sore throats, as a general antiseptic, and for cleaning kitchen surfaces. “Corn Silk: It is a strange thing that the most medicinal part of corn is always thrown away before cooking the cob. It may be surprising that cornsilk, the fine threads that are attached to the cob, is an official diuretic and urinary demulcent in the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia. What this means is that taking a tea made with fresh or dried corn silk assists the body to produce urine and is soothing to the urinary tract. Conditions such as cystitis, urethritis, and prostatitis, along with edema (water retention) and kidney dysfunction are all benefited by the gentle effects of cornsilk tea. This has been called one of the best natural diuretics, especially as it combines this quality with a soothing action on the kidneys and bladder. It is a frontline remedy, for the first signs of urinary unease, when early action can flush away the infection. It is antiseptic, restorative, and pain-relieving. Oddly for a diuretic, in small doses it can alleviate bedwetting. Other symptoms that can be relieved by corn-silk tea include high blood pressure and fluid retention. “Corn-Silk Tea: Cystitis bladder irritation arthritis prostitutes fluid retention Gather the corn silk and use fresh or dry it for later use by spreading it on brown paper to dry. Use about a tablespoonful of fresh corn silk or a teaspoonful of the chopped, dried corn silk and infuse in a cup of boiling water. Leave to brew for at least five minutes. Take either hot or cold, up to three times a day. This is very helpful for bladder infections. Continued next week

Aurora’s state of the art fiber optics yields savings

By Larry Frieders The infrastructure is in place, in the fiber optic network for the City of Aurora. Mayor Thomas Weisner announced the appointment of a Technology Round Table in March 2011, the purpose of which was to examine the ways that Aurora’s fiber optic network could be used to serve more than just city communications. Volunteer members of that committee addressed the Aurora City Council Tuesday night and reported, generally, on how the network is functioning and what it is doing for the city as a whole. Peter Lynch of Cisco Systems pointed out that Aurora took the lead in replacing a weak and fragmented network system with state of the art fiber optics. This move has resulted in savings on many levels. Because the city owns the fiber optics, the annual costs to participate in the networks are $485,000 less than when the city was buying services. Using the network, the city can maintain a traffic control system that allows vehicles to move more efficiently around and through Aurora. This saves time and, probably more importantly, it saves fuel because of there is less idling of vehicles waiting at lights. Less fuel use translates into more dollars saved on fuel costs and fewer emissions. At a time when 90% of the country is still using dial-up connections, Aurora is moving forward and meeting fulfilling the goals of becoming The City of Light Speed. Although Aurora moves quickly in the communications end of the technology boom, it is planning for changes in how the community will welcome and engage alternative energy technologies, notably solar and wind. Many citizens will want to participate in alternative sources of electrical energy for their homes and businesses. Although solar collectors easily can be incorporated into architecture in ways that make them invisible to the onlooker, the same can’t be said about the current wind technology, windmills. The

City Council and City staff members worked for approximately two years to craft guidelines to encourage alternative energy that protects our residential areas from becoming unsightly wind farms populated with rows of spinning blades. Alderman Rick Lawrence commended the work that has been done and pointed out that it should be more restrictive. Alderman Rick Mervine worked directly on the proposition and pointed out that, “this is something, at least,” and that it remains open for future discussion as the energy environment changes.

By a vote of 10 yes and 2 no, the City Council again approved a contract with Don Schomon, Inc., the City’s State lobbyist firm. Before adjourning, the City Council approved a measure to move forward in the search for more affordable sources of electricity for the Aurora government and citizens. Alderman Lawrence was assured that the reports on this effort would compare probable cost savings in dollars, not just as percentages. Brian Caputo, chief financial officer/ city treasurer, said that was in the plan.

"When I grow up, I want to be a doctor."

Male role model more important than title Grandpa, My daughter recently was married after a long drawn out divorce. Her new husband is a wonderful man, save for one flaw. He will not ask my grandchildren, his step children, to call him “Dad.” He continues to allow them to call him by his first name. I have repeatedly told him that this is not healthy for the children. What do you say? Grandpa says: Seeing as neither one of us lives in their house, I can’t say as it is our place to mold that family’s dynamics. If your son-in-law is a wonderful dad, and he is stepping in to help raise your grandkids in the absence of their real father, you need to be supportive of his actions. Stop nit-picking. Next time you see him, apologize for your interference and ask his forgiveness. I betcha he gives it to you. As for what’s healthy for the kids, having a loving male role model is more important than a title for that role model. Grandpa, My neighbor is a bitter old man. On Sundays I like to invite my friends over to watch the ball game on my big screen TV. This neighbor bangs on the wall or calls me up to complain that we are being too loud. I try to hold the noise down but in the excitement of the game, we forget. How would you handle this situation? These Sunday games are my only real relaxation.

Grandpa says: Next Friday or Saturday knock on your neighbor’s door and ask if he would like to join you and your friends to see the game on Sunday. Invited guests don’t complain about the noise. Grandpa, My wife and I are drowning in debt. We just don’t seem to be able to pay off our credit cards and maintain our lifestyle. I don’t want to declare bankruptcy and have my friends and co-workers find out that we are broke. Grandpa says: First things first. Drop the mask. Who cares what someone else thinks? Chances are they are in the same boat. Stop buying anything that you don’t truly need. My Grandpa taught me that when you get a paycheck, first you give to your church, then you give to your savings account, and then you live on the rest. Now, I am not a financial counselor, but there are some good bankruptcy attorneys that advertise right here in The Voice. They are the experts on getting yourself out of debt. Call one of them and get their advice. Scripture tells us to not put ourselves beholding to another man. That means that if you can’t pay for it, you probably don’t need it. 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.

How will you provide for his financial future? Tomorrow will be here before you know it. That’s why it’s important to set up a college savings program today. To find out how you can get started, please contact me.

Examination of Orphan Trains at Pierce Center in Aurora The Aurora Historical Society will be host to a lecture on the Orphan Trains at the Pierce Art and History Center, 20 E. Downer Place in Aurora at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19. Those attending are asked to park across the street in the free parking deck at Stolp and Downer. Using Stolp Avenue entrance during Downer bridge work deck is best accessed from Benton Street which is temporarily two-way traffic. Be sure to get a stamp for your ticket in our gift shop for free parking. $5., members $3.. Carol Chandler of the Lee County Genealogical Society will be the speaker on The Orphan Trains,

The History and Human Side of the Story. The Orphan Train movement was a social experiment during the period 1854-1929, when the rural life was romanticized and Americans thought that orphaned, abandoned, or homeless children from the city streets of the East should be taken away to start a new life and help settle the country in wholesome, religious homes in the Midwest. More than 200,000 children rode an “Orphan Train” to new lives. Today the Orphan Train movement is seen as the forerunner of modern-day foster care and general information can be found

at the website National Orphan Train Complex (www.orphantraindepot.com). Chandler has researched more than 200 children who arrived in northwestern Illinois during that period. Special guest at the lecture will be Aurora author Jo Fredell Higgins whose recent novel, A Song For Cecilia, is built upon the life of a fictional Orphan Train child. Copies of her book will be available for sale. The cost of the lecture is $5. per person, but for Aurora Historical Society members it is $3.. Ticket sales at the door only. More information about the event is at www.aurorahistory.net.

Local 145 team report from page 6 the case at all. Although it is possible that in some elections that only 10% exercised its right to vote, 100% of the membership was given the opportunity. The National Labor Relations Act states every employee that would be covered under a Collective Bargaining Unit is eligible to vote to certify the union. To be able to certify a union the National Labor Relation Act requires us to follow the following procedure. To even start a petition for union certification election, 30% of the employees must show interest in certifying a union. After the petition has been started, 50% plus one are needed to sign the petition. At that point the company can decide to recognize the union and bargain with them. However in most cases the company

chooses to force a secret ballot election. In this case the National Labor Relations Board (N.L.R.B.) steps in and takes over. The NLRB decides what date the election will be held, where the ballot box will be, what time it will be held, and posts the information for all the employees to see. It is then up to the employees to exercise their right to vote. Now for the union to be certified as the collective bargaining representative of the employees they must receive 50% plus one of the total votes cast. Just as in any other election in this country it is based on votes cast, not based on eligible voters. I can‘t help but wonder why they seem to believe that unions are terrible and don’t allow people to vote. It all comes down to the people’s choice to vote or

not to vote. We can’t force them to vote, just as we can’t force them to go to the ballot box for the general elections in November. Fact of the matter is that in the last presidential election 61.6% of the eligible voter population went out and cast their votes for the president of the United States. That means roughly four out of every 10 eligible voters did not even care who their president would be. So if individuals don’t think that they were given options to join or not, they should really take the time to look into the National Labor Relations Act. The Act allows everyone the ability to vote and it doesn’t just take 10% to vote for the union. Fact is the National Labor Relations Act allows companies to make threats to employees who vote for the union with no real penalty for doing so. So don’t be misled. Do the research and make sure you check the facts, because most of the Washington lobbyists don’t have your best interests in mind. Membership meeting In other news, don’t forget the membership meeting this Sunday, Feb. 19 at 2 p.m.. The Steward’s Council will meet at 12:30 p.m. and the Safety Committee will meet at 1 p.m..

ATMI Precast demonstration Last Sunday Dusty McCance attended a solidarity walk in support of employees who work at ATMI Precast in Aurora. These employees have been subjected to unfair treatment and pay cuts and were locked out for several weeks last November. These employees are trying to form a union to have a voice in the workplace so that they may speak up about unsafe working conditions and to raise their standard of living. You may ask why I would go to something that doesn’t involve me or our union? The answer should be simple for everyone. An injustice to one is an injustice to all. When their standard of living is raised then those around them will see positive effects of that. We as union members should strive to ensure social and economic justice for all. Stand up and be counted as one who supports the working families cause. If not for our hard work there would be no wealth for this country and the so called job creators. Labor comes before wealth! In solidarity

A postal cancellation ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. at the downtown Aurora Post Office, to commemorate the establishment March 2, 1837 of the Aurora Post Office. Within a setting of postal memorabilia jointly curated by the Post Office and the Aurora Historical Society, postal employees will offer a commemorative postmark saluting Aurora’s 175-year history. Entertainment will include a reading of the 1837 letter announcing the establishment of the office, as well as original music written about Aurora. Postmaster Jackie Sanchez will be a speaker. A birthday party will be held three blocks south at the Aurora Transportation Center starting at 5 p.m..

The commemorative postmark is free, however it can only be placed on First-Class Mail postage. Collectors and souvenir hunters may bring their own envelopes with first class stamp affixed, or they may choose from a set of four pictorial envelopes featuring famous images of Aurora which the historical society will offer at a nominal price. The cancellation may be obtained for a period of 30 days following the ceremonies by submitting a request to the post office. After 30 days the equipment is destroyed, ensuring the integrity of the cancellation. Cancelled pictorial envelopes will be for sale at the Aurora Historical Society gift shop throughout the year. The Aurora Post Office is at 525 N. Broadway. The cancellation activities will be conducted from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m..

A birthday party to celebrate the 175th anniversary will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Aurora Transportation Center. Sponsored jointly by the City of Aurora and the Aurora Historical Society, the event will include refreshments, music, historic characters and the Goddess Aurora, emblematic poster of the 175th anniversary making her first appearance of the year. The Aurora Historical Society is seeking Aurora’s oldest citizens, pioneer families, and residents who have significant length of residence to be honored by the mayor. Please visit www.aurorahistory.net to learn more about the criteria and how to submit a nomination. The Aurora Transportation Center is at 233 N. Broadway. Parking will be free that evening. Both events are free and open to the public.

Members of Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice hold a rally Sunday on the sidewalk in front of Jim Armbruster’s house in Aurora to encourage the owner of ATMI to give increased wages to workers and rehire fired workers See photo on page 1. Jason Crane/The Voice

ATMI Precast workers march to CEO residence reached a standstill. ATMI locked out approximately 100 employees for several weeks and brought in temporary staffing workers. At the rallies outside of ATMI last Fall, employees expressed frustration after a 20% wage cut in the Spring of 2010. ATMI builds concrete wall panels for construction. The company ended its lockout November 30 and the employees went back to work. Many ATMI employees were still upset about the 20% pay cut for concrete construction jobs that they claim paid around $9 to $13 per hour. The marchers last Sunday shouted chants and received honks and waves of support from motorists on Galena Boulevard. Some of the chants included: “Hey people look around, Aurora is a union town.” “We are the 99%” and “Yes we can”. The workers will hold a vote Friday to determine if they will join Laborers’ International Local 681 union. Leone José Bicchieri, executive director of Chicago Workers’ Collaborative helped lead the march with a megaphone. A couple of marchers occasionally sounded off portable air horns. The marchers stopped on the sidewalk in front of a big house on Downer Place in Aurora and continued chants while holding signs. Aurora police in squad cars monitored the streets where the peaceful marchers went. City of Aurora officials were sent an E-mail by Aurora 4th Ward Alder-

man Rick Lawrence Monday morning. Alderman Lawrence’s E-mail included the following questions: “I thought we made some changes to the ordinance controlling these type of organized events. Do they need a permit, and did they have one? What are the guidelines? Does the noise ordinance allow for bull horns and other sound-making items for individuals to stand in front of a private family home and yell at them and call them out? This seems to go above and beyond free speech. What message does this send to other business owners, you should move to a gated community out of Aurora? “Where is the Armbruster’s right and protection of privacy and enjoyment of their home? “I have no problem if this group protests a business, no matter how misdirected they are, but to single out an individual and his family with this type of approach, is wrong. These types of events do not promote Aurora as a place for individuals who have taken tremendous risk in business, provided thousands of jobs, survived a very challenging economy and pay high taxes to live here, as a place to stay and raise your family.” Lawrence included the municipal code in the E-mail about unlawful picketing at a residence. Several marchers were happy to share their reasons for being there: • Patrick Dooley from Oak Park

from page 1

said: “I support the workers as part of a much broader coalition including Occupy, and the unions, and the 99%.” • Bill Barclay, from Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice said: “I’m out here to support the workers of ATMI Precast. They want to form a union. They have a chance to vote on this Friday. Management has engaged in unfair labor practices including firing workers who have been active. Those are illegal under our system. We are asking that Jim Armbruster and the rest of management stop doing that. Let the workers have a free and open vote. Don’t try to replace the workers

or intimidate them. So, it’s a pretty simple notion about American democracy.” • MaryAnn Cummings from Aurora said: “I like being out and being a citizen. So much of the powers that be have tried to reduce us to consumers, to viewers, and not participants, but spectators. It’s nice. It feels good to march because what builds wealth. Enough of people moving numbers around. The fact that we’ve allowed things to drift so bad, so few people having so much money. Especially at See page 29

Dodgeball: AFD and school kids By Al Benson Starting Fridays with dodgeball is a tradition for Aurora Christian School children. But Friday, Feb. 10, ACS kids learned some dodgeball lessons from special guest teachers, the Aurora Fire Department dodgeball team, the 2011 World Police and Fire Games dodgeball champions. Scott Etchison, Aurora Christian principal, warmed up ACS first through fifth graders with dodgeball competition among themselves in the main gym from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m.. At 8 a.m., Etchison welcomed the eight-man Aurora Fire Department dodgeball team. After they were in-

troduced, the athletes gave kids tips on the sport and joined them in pelting each other with soft, multicolored balls. AFD athletes donating their time and energy were: Aaron Calhoun, Aurora firefighter Truck 6; Mike Kaufman, firefighter, Truck 6; Jason Mosshamer, firefighter/paramedic, Medic Truck 10; Matt Acuff, firefighter/paramedic, Medic Truck 1; Dick Dahleen, firefighter/paramedic, Medic Truck 5; Kevin Hoffman, firefighter, Truck 2; Jason Equi, firefighter/ paramedic, Medic Truck 3; and Mike McDevitt, firefighter/paramedic, North Aurora Fire Department. • See related photos on page 22.

ter. The Illinois Valley around Starved Rock State Park got nearly four inches of snow Friday, Jan. 20. My wife and I took advantage of the beauty of the freshly-fallen snow on the trails and hiked from the Lodge to St. Louis Canyon Saturday, Jan. 21. After our hike we went near the river to see the Bald Eagles. We counted 17 of them perched in a tree on the island halfway across the river. Tuesday Jan. 24, I had some free time and returned to Starved Rock. This time I was equipped with field glasses and my camera. I went to the

same area. When I was looking at the Bald Eagles in the tree again through the field glasses, I saw one unfolding his wings and getting ready to fly. I lowered the field glasses and got my camera ready. A minute later, the eagle flew right over my head and I got a nice photo of him in flight. If you want to make a weekend of it, the Starved Rock Lodge has nice rooms and cottages to rent and great food!

Select seconds book sale: How to buy American By Roger Simmermaker If you’ve thought about ordering your own copy of “How Americans Can Buy American” and aren’t necessarily concerned about it being in museum-style condition, then the “Select Seconds Sale” is for you. Right now, I am offering a limited number of copies of “How Americans Can Buy American” that are in slightly less-than-pristine condition for the rock bottom price of just $5.. So if you’ve got $5. in your pocket, wallet, or purse, I’d like to get a copy of How Americans Can Buy American to you, postage paid, so you can help make a difference in keeping profits, jobs, and tax revenue within our national borders. How can I offer these books for a price this low

and how did they become available? There’s a well-known practice within the publishing industry where books are ordered by wholesalers, which supply bookstores such as Barnes & Noble, and are then sometimes, unfortunately, returned back to the author or publisher (me) for various reasons. These reasons can include books that have been paged through too many times by customers, which can result in folded pages, creases in the covers, or other imperfections where they are no longer in sellable condition at a bookstore. After these books are returned to me, I’ve always contemplated whether or not to keep them. Then, I got the idea that I could offer them to

patriotic consumers at a cost that was significantly lower than the regular price. The price for this book can’t get any lower, so if you want all the information you need to buy American in the purest sense of the term, now is your chance. Again, supplies are limited, so don’t delay. Order today! Roger Simmermaker is the author of How Americans Can Buy American: The Power of Consumer Patriotism and writes "Buy American Mention of the Week" articles for WorldNetDaily.com and his website www.howtobuyamerican.com. Roger is a member of the Machinists Union, has been a frequent guest on Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC, and has been quoted in the USA Today, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Business Week among many other publications.

A. Lincoln Muses On The Aftermath Of His Death

I see you now describe a lot of what I said And wrote in life as showing great intelligence, But I demur. Most everyone in those days led Their lives dependent on the use of common sense. Moreover, putting the right word with the right phrase Can be a learned trait-a trait gained more from thought Than inspiration. Then, the art of writing plays A most decisive role, and genius it is not. Despite my homespun humor, and my off-the-cuff Remarks, most everything I said or wrote were real, No difference be it serious or casual stuff. There seemed to be no limit to what I would feel. That depth of feeling, many times, I thought a curse, Because it never wavered, there with every breath. I often wondered why, with feelings so diverse, That I should be the one so visited by death. But here God's wisdom shows itself; had I remained In office, tensions on both sides remaining strong, Where even common courtesies were taut and strained, It's doubtful there would be a sense of right and wrong. My death changed that; and common sense prevailed again. The people saw the truth-what they had nearly lost. The Union vowed to mend itself, right there and then, Despite the animosities, despite the cost. My death did something I could not have done alive; So I now rest in peace, quite humbled by your praise, And doubly so in seeing words and works survive. May they inspire the legions on which freedom weighs. © Richard Williams

Search A to Z and Aurora Library has the database Say you are an out-of-work videographer. Or, a restaurant manager looking for a new job. Or, a budding photographer looking for an internship. Or, maybe you own a video company or a restaurant or a photography studio and you want to find customers who might have an interest in your services. Where would you start? Although picking up a phone book or searching Google might come to mind, you may want to start here first: A to Z Databases from Aurora Public Library. But even before that, remember to get a library card if you don’t have one! A to Z is the library’s Database of the Month for February, and with good reason. It provides details on every business and every household in the United States. Not only is it good for job-seekers, but small business owners, students, career counselors and entrepreneurs. It’s easy to use!: Just click on A to Z Databases where there is a direct link from our website, aurorapubliclibrary.org, and then pick your search options. For instance, a videographer could search for area videotaping companies by: • Typing in Illinois and Aurora and Naperville • Typing in the keyword “Video” • Choosing “Video Production and Taping Services” from the drop-down menu, and • Hitting Search! The database found 14 video production and

find out even more by clicking on one of the businesses. Now you can find competitors and nearby businesses, and whether the business is womanor minority-owned or nonprofit. A business owner who seeks a state-of-the-art mailing list can search the population of Aurora by estimated household income or by interests and hobbies, such as computers, cooking, or health and fitness. Then that business owner can tailor his or her next marketing plan to the demographic that best fits the product. Perhaps you are not as computer literate as you would like. The Aurora Public Library has you covered there, as well. The Main Library has a new service called “Book a Librarian.” If you need help getting acquainted with A to Z Databases, looking for a job, navigating government websites or downloading a book to your new E-Reader, just call Himanshu Trivedi at 630-264-4107 and schedule a free 30-minute session. Librarians will be available from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Mondays and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays. Again, it is recommended that you have an Aurora Public Library card in order to have access to all the information that we can provide. Library cards are free.

Titanic Batavia Library book selection Nearly 100 years ago at 11:40 p.m. April 14, 1912 the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean and within 2½ hours the great ship sank, which resulted in a loss of more than 1,500 lives. In remembrance of this historical tragedy, A Night to Remember (1955) by Walter Lord has been named the One Book, One Batavia 2012 selection. The book is nonfiction, but it reads like an adventure story and remains one of the best accounts ever written about the Titanic disaster. During February and March, Batavia Public Library will offer a number of programs related to the Titanic and the era of traveling by luxury liner. The Library’s February book discussion on A Night to Remember was set for February 14. Copies of the book are available for checking out at the Batavia Library. At 2 p.m. February 19, actress Leslie Goddard will portray “Violet Jessop: Titanic Survivor.” Jessop was a stewardess aboard the Titanic and lived to survive the sinking of the Titanic’s sister ship, the HMHS Britannic in 1916. Goddard brings Jessop to life. She tells vivid stories of the disasters from the viewpoint of a crew member and shares a glimpse at life aboard the most glamorous luxury liners of their day. “Peter Oprisko Sings Songs of the Titanic Era,” will be at 2 p.m.,

March 4. Chicago-based Oprisko has been described as the “American Michael Bublé,” and his smooth, baritone voice and knowledge of musical history have impressed audiences throughout the country. March 11 at 2 p.m., the Library will be host to “Titanic Fashion.” Costume historian Sandi Eileen Sheibley will discuss and displays clothing, accessories, and jewelry popular in 1912. The One Book, One Batavia 2012 schedule will conclude March 15, when historical dramatist R. J. Lindsey gives two presentations related to the Titanic at the Library. At noon during his Books Between Bites presentation, Lindsey discusses the research required to create his portrayal of New York Times managing editor Carr Van Anda reacting to the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Then at 7 p.m., Lindsey will portray Van Anda when he hears of the disaster. Lindsey, as Van Anda, will present a slide show of the Titanic, from its construction to its final hours, and takes a personal look at the stories of several passengers from First, Second, and Third Class. Lindsey has performed at the Library previously, once portraying president Franklin Delano Roosevelt and once as William Hammond, M.D., Civil War Surgeon General. Both performances received rave re-

views from his Batavia audiences. A One Book, One Batavia events schedule which includes all of the programs listed above is now available at the Library. One Book, One Batavia is presented by Batavia Public Library in cooperation with Batavia High School and is co-sponsored by the Friends of Batavia Public Library. All of the programs are free of charge. Reservations are required, except for Books Between Bites and the book discussion. For more information and to register call 630-879-1393, ext. 200, or register online at www.OneBookOneBatavia.org. Actress Leslie Goddard will portry Violet Jessop at the Batavia Library February 19.

Hall students find classroom in Park District greenhouse Plants are truly amazing. So it wasn’t surprising when a first-grader asked what seemed to be a very logical question. “Can you grow French fries in your garden?” Well, no. Actually, yes…kind of. The more these young students learned, the more inquisitive they became during their field trip last week to the Fox Valley Park District’s greenhouse. They learned potatoes grow in the ground before they’re harvested and turned into French fries. This group had made the short trip from Hall Elementary School in Aurora to get an up-close look at what goes into growing, raising, and nurturing plants. They definitely were in the right place; on a yearly basis, the Park District plants more than 16,000 annuals and perennials and 400 canna lilies around its community centers and various parks.

For nearly two hours, students toured the greenhouse and engaged in hands-on activities, dividing plants, sowing seeds, sketching drawings of plants, and studying a whole bunch of cool, green leaves. School field trips at the greenhouse are part of a pilot program launched this year that is designed to give young students a better understanding and appreciation for the great diversity of plants and flowers they see all around them during growing season. “The greenhouse serves as a great classroom,” said Janet Cherbak, horticulture supervisor, “and

these field trips address the core curriculum requirements established by the state regarding what first-grade students should be learning about plants, biology and nature.” Turning the greenhouse into a learning center was a brainstorm between Cherbak and Aurora University students Sandra Quintanilla and Susan Gonzales, both of whom are working toward master’s degrees and currently teaching children in the same age range. The young students from Hall enjoyed a highly interactive, whirlwind tour. They learned the importance of air, sun, and water in making plants grow and flourish. They were introduced to terms such as chlorophyll, which makes plants green, and photosynthesis, how plants use sunlight to convert carbon dioxide to oxygen. “So plants help make the air we breathe?” asked one astute student. They learned the process of propagation, how plants grow and reproduce, from seed to stem to roots to leaves to flowers. Across the board, these students were fascinated. It’s not easy to hold the attention of children, especially first-graders, in a classroom setting. But they were genuinely intrigued and quite enthused about their new discoveries. “How do flowers get to be so pretty?” “Is there something in the dirt (soil) that makes strawberries taste so good?” Those types of questions are music to the ears of educators. Cherbak said more programming is being planned for children, including a gardening class in the Summer that is geared toward 10-year-olds. Teachers who want to plan an upcoming field trip at the greenhouse for this school year, or next, should contact Cherbak at 630-897-4261. The kids will give it a thumbs-up…green thumbs. Jeff Long is the public relations manager for the Fox Valley Park District. Contact him at jlong@ fvpd.net.

State of Illinois Veteran of the Month Richard Irvin behalf of governor Pat Quinn from Rodrigo Garcia, assistant director of the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs. Along with the proclamation, Irvin received a flag that had flown over the Illinois State Capitol. “Service to country and community go hand-in-hand with Richard Irvin,” said IDVA Director Erica Borggren. “After serving in the Middle East, he embarked on an impressive career in public service. Richard is the quintessential example of the type of individual that the Veteran of the Month award is designed to honor.” The Illinois Veteran of the Month award is a distinction bestowed upon military veterans who give back to their communities. When Irvin returned home, he became the first in his family to attend college and law school. For his military service, he earned the Army Service Ribbon, Army Achievement Medal, Army Commendation Medal, National De-

fense Service Medal, Overseas Service Ribbon, and Southwest Asia Service Medal. On the home front, he was a highly regarded head of the Aurora-based Prosecutor Unit of the Kane County State Attorney’s Office where he worked with police, local elected officials and residents to fight crime and address quality of life issues in Aurora. He also serves on the Executive Board of the Illinois Coalition for Community Services and is a volunteer with Big Brothers and Big Sisters and a life member of Aurora’s VFW Post 468. Professionally, Irvin is aldermanat-large for Aurora and is a private practice attorney with Law Offices of Richard C. Irvin & Associates. Rodrigo Garcia, assistant director of the Illinois Department of Veterans Administration said: “We stand here today to honor one of our own. Illinois native son, Mr. Richard Irvin. It is fitting that this

month, African American month we honor such a great individual. I was talking to state representative (Linda) Chapa LaVia who is the individual who nominated Mr. Richard Irvin who has done a lot for his community and service to the city of lights and service to his veterans. • “We here today on February 14, 2012 in remembrance of AfricanAmerican history month, we honor Mr. Richard Irvin and on behalf of the State of Illinois we remember that not only are they yesterday’s warriors, they are today’s leaders.” Irvin said: “Wow! It’s an absolute honor to receive such a distinguished award. It’s a privilege to have served my country in the United States Army, and serve my country in a time of war. “I can remember when I was in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War. All the things you see when you are in war, death, destruction, despair. I can

remember a time when fellow soldiers of mine were riding near Dumont Port, the area where the Marines and the Navy brought in all the goods and weaponry and our soldiers. Seeing the Scud missiles fly over in air and the Patriot missiles knocking them down and the fireworks that looked like the Fourth of July. Bombs truly bursting in air. The first time that happened, when the siren seemed to go off throughout the whole country and just permeate through your very body letting you know a Scud missile will be coming over and wondering to myself, is this the day that I might die? “I remember having a conversation with my mother about going into the military and she said, ‘are you sure you want to in the Army. What would you do there? “So when that question was asked. I would not change anything. I would put myself in harms way again and again for the service of my country.”

over in-state rival Illinois February 5. The victory avenged a one-point loss January 4 at Northwestern. “Losing to Illinois was tough. We play against those guys all the time,” Crawford said. Crawford is trying to help lead Northwestern to its first NCAA tournament berth. “We need to win as many games as we can,” Crawford said. Northwestern defeated Iowa last week, 83-64, and Crawford was one of five players scoring in double figures with 11 points. Crawford scored 14 points in the Cats’ Sunday defeat at Purdue, 87-77. Northwestern was set to take an overall record of 15-9 and 5-7 in the Big Ten Conference into a game at Indiana Wednesday, Feb. 15 prior to playing at home against Minnesota at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18. Northwestern must be close to .500 in the Big Ten and well above .500, close to 20 victories, to make it to the NCAA Tournament. Four Big Ten Conference games will remain after Saturday. Crawford is rating high marks in the classroom. His 3.5 grade point average qualified him for the District 5 all academic team. “It is hard balancing studies and basketball. I have a full schedule and I need to make sure I get my work done,” he said. Crawford would like his future to include basketball. “Playing in the DuPage Valley Conference at Naperville Central (High School) was great and I love my time at Northwestern. I really think I can play at the next level.” Whatever the future holds Crawford has prepared himself and will be ready for the next challenge.

You do at a place like Texas or Atlanta, but here (Daytona) not so much because you have so much grip, the cars drive so well, and you don’t feel the big speed difference. “I don’t know why NASCAR is OK with going a little faster now. My guess would be that they have become educated on how fast the cars can go and, if they get out of control, how stable they will be. I always thought 200 mph was the ‘don’t go past’ zone, but they seem to be comfortable with that, and the car doesn’t feel a lot different.” *** Monte Dutton covers motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.)

By Woodrow Carroll Last weekend, the Rockford IceHogs and Chicago Wolves, American Hockey League rivals, squared off in back-to-back Midwest Division games. Only this time they were not home-and-away games. Both were played in Rockford’s BMO (Bank of Montreal) Harris Bank Center which should have given the struggling IceHogs a bit of a lift. For a time the home ice seemed to help Rockford. Rockford had dropped its last two matches before the Wolves visited the Center. The IceHogs had picked up 13 of 14 possible points in a prior seven-game stretch. The run moved the IceHogs back into the playoff picture. Rockford, last in the AHL’s fiveteam Midwest Division where the Wolves reside in second place, got off well last weekend. The IceHogs prevailed in a tight-checking affair last Friday night to win, 2-1. A crowd of 6,164 last Saturday evening, saw the Wolves win, 6-2. Rockford held an early 1-0 advantage. The crowd, Rockford’s second largest this season to the 6,287 that showed up January 28 against Milwaukee, was thinking weekend sweep. The

Wolves, however, had other ideas. By the end of the first 20 minutes, the Wolves led, 2-1. After the IceHogs equalized early in the second period, the Wolves scored three quick goals, including two within 10 seconds that ended Rockford’s chances of a weekend sweep. Points are precious. Last season both teams failed to qualify for the AHL’s Calder Cup playoffs. As part of the AHL picture since 2001-02, the Wolves have captured the Calder Cup twice, 2002 and 2008. Rockford, a fifth-year AHL member, went to the second round of the playoffs in 2008 before falling to the eventual champion Wolves. Since that time the season has ended with the final regularseason game for the IceHogs. Saturday’s defeat left the IceHogs at 21-24-1-4 for 47 points with two months to go in the regular season. The victory for the Wolves left them at 27-18-1-3 for 58 points. The Wolves ended the weekend in second place to Charlotte and the IceHogs were fifth and last. Rockford will play road games with Toronto and Hamilton Friday and Saturday. The Wolves were home for five consecutive games.

cause the two teams are compeititive.” Marmion’s longstanding rival Aurora Central has experienced a competitive history. They went into this season tied at 35 victories each. Marmion won the first two games, the second in overtime, 64-62, at Marmion. They will play a third time, in the first round of the Sandwich Class 3A Regional Tournament the week of February 27. Marmion was seeded second, behind Yorkville, and Aurora Central was seeded third. “It’s difficult to beat a good team a

third time,” Paradise said. “I like the way we’re playing now. We have grown up and matured and winning close games. “Stefanski is a real good shooter, and has been labeled an outside shooter, but he is athletic enough to be more than a good shooter.” The Marmion-Aurora Central rivalry is not the only one to be renewed in regional tournament games. St. Charles East and St. Charles North will meet in the first round.

Freedom and liberty depend on citizens using their voices

Seniors should find ways to avoid home invasion Years ago, no one locked their doors. We trusted our neighbors, and we all looked out for each other. We started to lock our doors, and if a child was left home alone, we told them, “Don’t answer the door.” It was for their own safety, because who knew who would be at the door? Times have changed, dramatically. All across the country, police report break-ins, even during broad daylight. The thieves are usually younger people, looking to make a quick entry, grab small electronics and/or jewelry, and make a quick getaway. Their usual tactic is to knock on the front door, or ring the door bell. If no one answers, they quickly make their way around to the back of the house and kick in a door. Unfortunately, there have been instances in Aurora and surrounding communities, where either an elderly person could not make it to the door quickly enough, or a child was told not to answer the door, or someone just didn’t want to be bothered to answer or was not to dressed to get to the door. Then the person in the home finds a stranger there! Police say that these criminals generally aren’t dangerous, they only want to grab some items for quick resale, but who knows what can

Spotting Elder Abuse helpful Elderly abuse can take many forms. According to a study done for The National Center on Elder Abuse, the following can be considered abuse: • Failure to provide food, water, shelter, medicine and other essentials. • Financial or material exploitation: Cashing checks without permission, forging a signature, stealing, coercing a senior into signing documents. • Caregiver neglect: Failure to respond to needs. • Physical abuse: Hitting, punching, shoving. • Sexual abuse: Inappropriate touching. • Emotional abuse: Yelling, screaming, belittling, name calling. According to the study, the majority of

the elderly abuse victims were female, with nearly half of them being age 80 or older. Most of the abuse occurred at home, and more than half of the abusers were female. The study was done a few years ago, but as we “baby boomers” age, the numbers are sure to rise. Here are some scenarios that might indicate that there is an abusive situation. • Your elderly female neighbor died and their son moved in. He seems to have taken over. • You work at a bank and the caregiver for an elderly customer has been continually withdrawing funds in excess of what your customer used to withdraw. • A friend confides: “My daughter wants me to sign papers I don’t understand.” In each case, there could be a perfectly reasonable explanation — or not. Stay alert to the possibility of abuse. If you’re a mail carrier, bank clerk, hospital staff, grocery checker, newspaper carrier,

happen when a person is confronted or finds witnesses in the home? Police say: If you are home and don’t want or are not able to easily answer the door, to loudly call out, “I can’t come to the door right now.” Or, go to a window near the door, rap on the window and indicate you are home, but busy, possibly have a phone to your ear. Anything that will let them know this is not an empty home. Another suggestion is to replace the short, usually 1½ inch, screws that hold in the striker plate and the screws on the hinge side of the door, with a minimum of 3 inch screws. The short screws only go into the door frame, not into the studs around the door. It is very difficult to kick in a door with the longer screws. Officer Wrobel of the Aurora Police Deptartment suggests getting a longer strike plate, one that covers both the striker plate and the dead bolt lock, home health aide, social services staff or any number of professions that come into contact with the public, you’re in a position to spot possible abuse of a senior. If you need help or more information, go online to the Nation Center on Elder Abuse (www.ncea.aoa.gov) or call 1-800-677-1116. On applying Online for Social Security Have you seen the public service announcements with Patty Duke promoting Social Security and Medicare? Now there’s a new one: She’s signing up for Social Security ... from home ... in her pajamas! I thought the plaid PJs were a bit much, but the message is a good one. We can sign up for Social Security and Medicare from the comfort of our home, assuming we have a computer. Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions.

and these can be found at most hardware stores. Another option is www.doordevil.com, which offers a longer strip that covers most of the length of the door. If you get new electronics, especially a flat screen television or other easily removable items, cut the boxes up and turn them inside out before you put it out by the trash. Otherwise, anyone passing by can see that you now have something new. Watch out for your neighbors. Form a Neighborhood Watch program. Know your neighbors’ vehicles and if you see a strange car or truck in the driveway, call the neighbor, or call the police. If you see someone walking around you don’t recognize, call the police. It only take a few minutes to break in and steal small electronics, jewelry, or something portable. Vacant homes are often targets for thieves who break in and steal the copper piping, often leaving water running which then destroys the house. Take care of yourself. Be a good neighbor. Watch out for each other. Cecelia Sanders has been in the field of eldercare for more than 30 years and currently works at Sunnymere of Aurora, a non-profit independent and Assisted Living Community.

Q: Dachshund’s Odd Behavior DEAR PAW’S CORNER: When we give my miniature Dachshund, “Peg,” a chew treat, she takes it and walks all over the house crying. She will stop and “bury” it in different places, under a blanket or behind things, then pull it right back out and continue the process again and again for a while before she finally settles down and begins chewing it. We were wondering what is going on in her head that results in this behavior. — Curious Doxie Mom DEAR DOXY MOM: Peg’s behavior has all the earmarks of instinctive behaviors applied to a specific item (the chew treat). Dachshunds are notorious diggers —it’s part of what they were originally bred for, as working dogs that would root out vermin like moles. So it’s not too surprising that she does this with her chew toys. The crying seems like a way of announcing possession, like

“hey, this is mine, I got it, check it out!” rather than distress. If the behavior happens only at treat time and doesn’t bother you or harm the furniture, it’s up to you whether to let it continue. However, it sounds like Peg needs more stimulation in her life. Try playing games where you “bury” a toy (cover it with a pillow, say) and have her find it. You can even go so far as to build a sandbox out back where she can bury and dig up toys during play times, under your supervision. Don’t let her dig in other parts of the yard, though; if she starts that up, distract her and give her something else to do (like teaching basic obedience commands) or bring her back to the sandbox to dig.

I have posters that are souvenirs from two political conventions, the 1988 Democratic Convention in Atlanta and the 1988 Republican Convention in New Orleans. Each poster has a paragraph that states they were printed on recycled paper gathered from the convention floor. They are commemorative prints, and I wonder if they have any value. — Virginia, New Port Richey, Fla. I spoke to several serious collectors of political memorabilia, and they seem to agree that your posters are worth about $20 each. A good general reference is “Warman’s Political Collectibles: Identification and Price Guide” by Dr. Enoch L. Nappen (Krause, $24.99). *** I am trying to find some information about two bronze plates that I have. Both are stamped “The Henry Bonnard Bronze Company, NY” and they depict what seem to be a war victory and a celestial scene. I’d like to contact someone who can give me information regarding their significance and estimated value. — Barry, via email Henry Bonnard and his factory produced important medal castings during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

I checked with several shops that specialize in vintage electronic equipment, and I found a Webcor that I think might be similar to the one you have — a 1952 Webcor two-track, two-speed reel-to-reel model with four heads and tube amp. It is in working order and priced at $50, which I think accurately reflects the current market.

Homeless Women Vets Often Shortchanged The number of homeless women veterans doubled between 2006 and 2010. By now there’s no telling how high that number is. With the increased number of female veterans having served in the Gulf War, the numbers can’t help but rise dramatically. A recent General Accounting Office study on homeless female veterans found that: • Two-thirds of the women were between 40 and 59 years of age. • One-third had disabilties. • Many of them were raising minor children. Per the GAO, the big reason there isn’t enough help for these female veterans is that the information isn’t out there: “HUD collects data on homeless women and on homeless veterans, but does not collect detailed information on homeless women veterans. Neither the VA nor HUD collect data on the total number of homeless women veterans.” Therefore, even though the Department of Veterans Affairs plans to end veteran

27

homelessness by 2015, it’s not on track to deal with homeless female veterans because it doesn’t know the extent of the problem. To compound matters, female veterans often aren’t aware of the services available to them, and even if they are, those in place to help them aren’t always aware of the services they are to provide. A quarter of homelessshelter coordinators didn’t even know there are programs in place for female veterans. It’s no wonder that many women are waiting so long for shelter: up to four months. There are additional complications. Even if the women veterans are accepted into a shelter program, more than half don’t take children, or they limit the number of children. Or there can be safety issues. Our women veterans deserve better. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

A Valentine’s Day special By Jason Crane The Worldwide Marriage Encounter, a faith-based marriage enrichment program in the United States, recently announced the 2012 winner of the Longest Married Couple project for Illinois. It was an Aurora couple, Dale and Doris Chatfield, who have been married for 73 years and spent their 74th Valentine’s Day together this week at a Valentine’s Day party at Alden of Warterford retirement community. The Chatfields were the Illinois winners as a result of 256 nominations received from 47 states. When asked their secret to make a marriage work that long, Doris replied: “We lead a very simple life and we don’t drink or smoke. The Lord has blessed us a lot.” Dale jokingly shared a saying:

“Never drink, smoke, chew, or go with the girls who do.” Doris said: “We have two wonderful kids, six grandchildren, and about six great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. “The kids moved us here from Colorado six years ago because at our ages, 91 and 100, we ought to be close to one of them,” Doris said. “Our son lives in West Chicago and we like it here except for the weather.” Dale said he left Nebraska and went to Denver to get rich and found a jewel in Doris. “I wouldn’t take one of your million dollars for her, he said.” “When I left home I thought the best way to live was by the Boy Scout See page 29

are coming home to roost, and fly, in domestic airspace should come as no surprise to those who have been paying attention. The U.S. government has a history of commandeering military technology for use against Americans. We saw this happen with tear gas, tasers, sound cannons and assault vehicles, all of which were first used on the battlefield before being deployed against civilians at home. Thus, although 83% of Americans approve of the use of drones abroad, and 65% approve of using drones to assassinate suspected terrorists abroad, even if they are American citizens, it remains to be seen how those same Americans will feel when they are the ones in the sights of the drones. Needless to say, they won’t have to wait too long to find out. The power of these machines is not to be underestimated. Many are equipped with cameras that provide a live video feed, as well as heat sensors and radar. Some are capable of peering at figures from 20,000 feet up and 25 miles away. They can keep track of 65 persons of interest at once. Some drones are capable of hijacking Wi-Fi networks and intercepting electronic communications such as text messages. The U.S. Army is currently developing drones with facial recognition software, as well as drones that can complete a target-and-kill mission without any human instruction or interaction. They are the ultimate killing and spying machines. In addition to the privacy concerns, the safety of drone technology has been called into question. There have been a handful of high-profile crashes involving American drones abroad, including in Iran, the island nation of Seychelles, and most recently in Somalia. The Iranian government claimed it brought down the drone flying in its territory by way of a computer hack. This is two years after Iraqis hacked into the live feed of a few drones using “$26 off-the-shelf software.” Mind you, back in October 2011, the U.S. military admitted that their drone fleet had been infected by a “mysterious virus.” The faultiness of the drone technology and the fact that amateur hackers can gain access to the controls and camera feeds are reason enough to ground these devices indefinitely. Unfortunately, with the wars abroad winding down, America has become the new battleground in the war on terror, to the delight and profit of the military-industrial complex. In fact, with companies such as Boeing and Lockheed Martin making their influence felt among members of Congress, Boeing spent more than $12 Million lobbying in 2011, and Lockheed spent more than $11 Million, you can be sure that their technologies will continue to be purchased by the government, even when there is no need for them. Thus, in the same way that our domestic police forces are now armed with mini-tanks and grenade launchers taken from the military’s armory, it was simply a matter of time before drone technology made its way back home. We can sit around and wait for some member of Congress with a conscience or some judge concerned about the coming tyranny to push back against the drone empire from within. However, until the American people succeed in raising their collective voices against this technological tyranny, the powers that be will continue on the path to total control, and the condition of our civil liberties will become more dire with every passing day. —The Rutherford Institute
