New skating rink in Oswego waits for Winter weather The site awaits a frigid blast:

Crew members at The Garden Faire in Oswego roll out the liner for a skating rink last Friday. The rink in front of the store, where plant displays will take hold in Spring, is ready for skaters.

The battle continues between candidates and electorate When you stop to think about it, there is irony in the caucus and primary process of our political system. It grows by leaps and bounds every cycle. Do other countries go through what we do? The candidates, Republican Party, Democratic Party, and independents if they build up the momentum and have enough money, through caution to the wind. Actually, they throw money at the electorate. Raising funds to run for office is perpetual for both incumbents and aspiring elected leaders. But it takes some convincing, not of the base, but those who sit on the fence, or, those who only pay attention to what is being said on the day they go to the voting booth. Throwing money at the electorate really means raising funds to have numerous television ads, to allow the candidates to fly all over the important states to visit with and smooth-talk the voters. Have we passed the point of being efficient in the use of money to run for national office? More money equates, by most candidates’ logic of more votes. Sadly, there is too much truth to the statement. Can we somehow find better candidates without lobbyists and corporate interests being the backbone of fundraising? Have the days of low-budget swirled past us? The comment that Abraham Lincoln could not get elected today is a sad commentary on our system. Candidates are free to raise whatever money they think they need. There is no doubt of that fact and we still do have freedoms remaining. But at what cost? The candidates who receive

funds have an obligation to return some favors to those who make donations to candidates. There is a piper to pay. How much control do those who make campaign contributions? The British have much simpler system. There is limited time of the campaign season. Much of the campaigning is far less costly. The American electorate is bombarded with candidates seeking the attention of the average person who are at the mercy of tampering with truth, half-truths, and outright lies. Every candidate seeks to please its audience. How much honesty is involved is always the question. When the storm is over and the election dust settles, we nearly always end up with a different elected official than we saw on the campaign trail. It is up to the voter to seek the truth and to understand the issues. Too many voters fail to un-

derstand the issues and often can get sucked into believing what is being fed by the candidates. Yes, there is some honesty, but, it makes the head swim if there is focus, or, a reaction of giving up and believing a certain way because of expedience. Accusations of being too liberal or too conservative or inattentive, can play to the base which will not necessarily keep their chose candidates honest. Because fundraising spirals out of control and is seen as the necessary evil, society suffers the defeat. At some point, and the question is when, we will have reform. It will not happen as long as the current politicians have their way and will not happen until the electorate gets upset and insists. Until then we will be victimized by the candidates who can raise the most money and confuse the voters with lies and half-truths. At some point the candidates will have a rude awakening the be told by the voters that they are in charge. There is always a certain friction in politics, but it will become smoother when a higher percentage of electorate realizes that they have an investment in good government. We must demand it, or, it will not be done. We must be informed and insistent.

Accounts continue of Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011 The television news has broadcasts in the evening been covering a series of demonstrations in New York City by a group called Occupy Wall Street (OWS), based in Zuccotti Park in the Wall Street financial district. The first protest was September 17, 2011, and by October 9 similar demonstrations either were ongoing or had been held in 70 major cities and more than 600 communities in the U.S.. Other Occupy protests modeled after Occupy Wall Street have occurred in more than 900 cities worldwide. The protests were initiated by the Canadian activist group Adbusters. They are mainly protesting social and economic inequality, corporate greed, corruption, and influence over government, particularly from the financial services sector, and lobbyists. The protesters' slogans read: “We are the 99%” referring to the difference in wealth and income growth in the U.S. between the wealthiest one percent and the rest of the population.

York Daily News reported on an incident involving well known actress Ellen Barkin and supporters of the OWS movement when they moved police barricades to the center of Zuccotti Park to celebrate the new year. A video was shot and posted on the Internet on a recent Sunday of a cop shoving Barkin after she got caught up in the chaos surrounding a New Year’s police roundup of OWS protesters. Barkin said: “I have never been afraid of a New York policeman until last night. What I saw was random and senseless arrests and unnecessarily threatening behavior.” Barkin, 57, said she was walking home when she saw mass arrests at 13th Street and 5th Avenue. “It was upsetting, and looked unnecessarily aggressive and random,” she tweeted. Barkin said she tried to make her way to a young woman who had been put into a police van and was screaming for help. “She was not a protester. Was not drunk. She was walking home,” Barkin said on Twitter. “A video shot by Barkin’s companion, 26-yearold actor Sam Levinson, shows a police officer herding Barkin from the street to the sidewalk and then pushing her by the shoulders. “Take your (expletive) hands off me,” she can be heard saying furiously. “Then she tweeted again: “Is it a crime 2 stand in the street in NY? WTF is going on here?” “Barkin is a prolific Twitterer who is profanely outspoken in her support of the Occupy movement. “The NYPD had no immediate comment Sunday night on her tirade. “Barkin’s tweets became more angry as the night went on: “I cannot believe what I am seeing. U pro-

tect nothing. U ARE the violence in my city.” Paddock and Kennedy wrote: The police arrested 68 people as they shut down the Occupy Wall Street march near Union Square. The arrests came after protesters in Zuccotti Park pulled down the metal police barricades sealing off the public park and retook it while the NYPD’s focus was uptown at Times Square. “They danced on a giant mound of the barricades, waved signs and projected a message in light, ‘Whose year? Our year!!’ until police regrouped and shut them down. “Most of the 68 arrests were for disorderly conduct, though some protesters were also hit with charges of trespassing and obstructing governmental administration. “In the tussle, Zachary Miller, 28, of Berkeley, Calif., allegedly attacked a cop with a pair of scissors. He was charged with assaulting an officer. “The officer was treated at Bellevue Hospital. Protesters said the police responded by pepper spraying them. “Miller, a Berkeley graduate, is an organizer of the so-called Rolling University, a California student movement fighting to make education more accessible to the poor. “His rabble-rousing predates Occupy Wall Street: He was one of two people arrested in early 2010 for inciting a riot after a melee at UC Berkley in which students broke windows at a Subway restaurant and set a garbage bin on fire. “He was initially denied bail because of three outstanding probation violations, according to an account in the Daily Californian. “Miller and his co-defendant were found not guilty by a jury after a two-week trial in November 2010, the paper reported. “In March 2011, Miller helped organize a dramatic demonstration at Berkeley in which eight students chained themselves to a fourth-floor ledge on the facade of a campus building. They were wearing adult diapers and were in it for the long haul, but came down after a day after the university agreed to some of their demands.” Paddock and Kennedy wrote.

Caitlin Renner Hutchinson: On her way to success It is always delightful to meet someone of energy and talent. Someone young enough to still dream. Someone so impressive that immediately you know that person will make something out of life. Such a person is Caitlin Renner Hutchison. Caitlin was born in Aurora in 1988. When she was four years-old, the family moved to Oswego. She was graduated from Oswego High School in 2004. She attended Northern Illinois University and earned a B.F.A. in theatre design/technology with a minor in art. Caitlin was graduated with an M.F.A. from Ohio University in May 2011 in costume crafts and costume design. Her thesis was a costume craft practical. “I like the creative, the hands-on variety of my career,” she said. “There is always a new production. Whether it is beading a gown or distressing a costume so it will appear aged, there is such diversity in this field. I grew up in the Wild Rose Florist Shop on South Broadway. I had my own playroom and held Friday night Barbie weddings. My mom and aunt attended. I would draw and color and play there. I realized later that most of the members of our family were creative. My grandmother Doris designed her own clothes and taught me how to crochet.” Caitlin has created fabric dolls for her mom and for the Wild Rose Florist shop on Route 31 in North Aurora. She has names for them. LuLu is the “Queen of the Circus” and sports bright colors. “Mahogany is a doll I created for my mom. The fabric is all brown tones. We could have sold her many times now, but my mom likes her too much to sell. If I

made six more, I am sure we could sell them to good homes! I also have a doll in all pink shades who is unfinished and not yet named,” she said. The first hat Caitlin created is a dark blue polka dot cloche with gingham ribbon that I think I would love to wear. It sits in the “Wedding Room” at The Wild Rose Florist Shop. Her creativity is remarkable and enchanting. The dolls are stuffed with fiberfill and wires help form the arms and legs. I expect them to talk to me soon because they look so charming. It is one of the best parts to a day of contentment to meet someone so gifted and just beginning her life journey. Her successful future is assured because of her love for her craft and her enthusiasm for the creative arts. For the past two Summers she has worked with the Sante Fe Opera. Last Summer Caitlin was involved making hats as a milliner’s assistant/apprentice. “We took the pattern and fit and made 26 turbans and military caps and fascinators. The fascinators are the small tilted hats like Kate Middleton wore during her engagement period to England’s Prince William.” Caitlin knows that luck plays an important role in her past and future success. But luck simply means being in the right place

at the right time with the right credentials. And that she has. Her resume already reflects a career of impressive work and recommendations. She was an intern with Lynne Mackey Studio in New York City last year. She has been a wardrobe/makeup/ stitcher with The Lost Colony in North Carolina, and a properties designer with the Organic Theatre in Chicago with Director Alex Gelman. She has been a properties designer at the summerNITE Theatre at Northern Illinois University. Caitlin was a craft shop manager with the Ohio University productions and assistant with hair and makeup for several other productions at Ohio University. She has skills in various painting and dyeing techniques including batik, shibori, cold and hot process, and color matching, photography, prop construction and basic carpentry, jewelry design and construction. Caitlin has worked with directors Chris Markle, David Russell, Alvaro Sarmiento and Jenny Roberts. The day following the interview, Caitlin was flying to New York City to begin an internship. We said goodbye. I felt she was just beginning a marvelous career. “When your designs win an Academy Award, let me know,” I said. “I want to be in the audience.” She smiled her magnificent smile, and so did I.

Caitlin Renner Hutchinson has prepared most of her life to work in creative fields. She has created hats, dolls, and started with Barbie Doll weddings. She has dreams and is success-oriented. She created the doll to the right. Jo Fredell Higgins photos

Indiana Democrats boycott House right to work squabble By John Bogucki, president, and Jim Myer, bargaining chairman United Auto Workers Local 2096 Region 4 (A team report) The latest skirmish in the war over labor has touched ground in Indiana, where Republican and Democratic state representatives are sparring over whether to adopt a right-to-work law which would prohibit union contracts in private-sector work environments to mandate dues or other fees to a union. The highly contentious squabble provoked Democrats to boycott the Indiana House floor Wednesday of last week and prevented the Republican majority from conducting business. Dozens of Indiana Democrats barricaded themselves inside a Statehouse conference room for more than three hours, which marked the first day of the 2012 legislative session. Behind closed doors, the lawmakers tossed around ideas about how to defeat the controversial labor bill, which they effectively snubbed last year when they fled the state for a five-week boycott. Indiana State Republicans, who need 67 representatives to be present to fulfill quorum requirements, argued that the right-to-work legislation has been thoroughly examined, and concluded that it would make Indiana a magnet for new businesses and jobs. We need to make sure this never will happen in Illinois. 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. 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, Jan. 16, Larry Stine, 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. • Tuesday, Jan. 17, leave a message. • Wednesday, Jan. 18, Jim Myer, 6:30 a.m. to

Flat screen HD TV production will begin in Detroit Element Electronics has announced that it will begin production of flat screen, HD TVs at its factory in Detroit, Mich. in March 2012. This will make Element Electronics the only company assembling TVs in the United States. The company said it made the decision to manufacture products in the U.S. in order to shorten its supply chain and related lead times, to be more responsive to American consumers, and reduce waste. The company

believes that a U.S.-based assembly plant will increase the out-of-the-box quality of its televisions: “This was also an emotional decision for the company, maybe even a patriotic choice,” explained Mike O’Shaughnessy, president of Element Electronics. “Element Electronics is an American company. Personally, I grew up in a small, blue-collar Ohio town. Our business is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn.. We are rooted in the Midwest. We have

watched for years as jobs have left America for other countries. We have wanted to and planned for producing TVs here, at home. Element Electronics wants to pioneer a resurgence of creating quality manufacturing jobs in the USA.” Element Electronics believes global economic trends will make American production more economically viable over time and the company is scheduled to continue increasing production over the next few years. This will lead to

increased job creation within Element Electronic factories and their suppliers. In the short term, the company said that the plant will provide jobs for about 100 individuals, but already has plans for expansion and additional hires down the road. The HDTVs that Element Electronics will produce at the Michigan plant will be sold for “essentially the same prices” as those made in China. —Alliance for American Manufacturing

Legal battles rage over water; public can take action Second of a three parts Many scientists and activists say that we are in a water war which is affecting not only the U.S., but the whole world. This rapidly building crisis is at both the global and human scale, with many governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab. The question which needs to be answered: “Can anyone really own water?” Here is a continuation of notes started last week in this space from a presentation by Tony Clarke, director, Polaris Institute, Canada. “In 2005 on appeal by Nestlé, the Appellate Court reversed the lower court decision that landowners along streams have legal standing superior to those bottling water and exporting it out of state. At this time, the Supreme Court is evaluating a segment of the case addressing the legal right to file suit. “Nestlé / Ice Mountain contends that the company’s primary issues in the battle are decided. To a great extent, the case has largely been resolved through the Court of Appeals when it decided Nestlé has the right to use water under the rules of the state’s reasonable use laws. “What You Can Do: • Choose tap water over bottled water whenever possible. • Encourage your friends, family, university campus, local government and community groups to break the bottled water habit at home, the office and public events. Sign the Take Back the Tap pledge on our Web site. • Join Food & Water Watch’s campaign to urge local restaurants to stop serving bottled water. • Encourage your local government and businesses to repair and install water fountains or tap water filling stations. • Support state legislation to prevent excessive

removal of groundwater. • Be a host to a screening of one of the films available from Food & Water Watch’s Water Film Library about citizens challenging Nestlé and other water bottlers. • Get more involved in taking back the tap by contacting Food & Water Watch at 202-683-2500, cleanwater@fwwatch.org. Food & Water Watch: The proposed Nestlé water bottling plant in Cascade Locks, the Colombia Gorge, is heating up again, and Nestlé, perhaps the least-loved water bottling company on the planet, can’t be happy to see this: “On March 29, 2010, a coalition of environmental and social justice organizations, Keep Nestlé Out of the Gorge, led by the consumer advocacy group Food & Water Watch, www.fwwatch.org, launched a coordinated campaign to prevent Nestlé Waters North America from opening a water bottling facility in Cascade Locks, Ore.. “The coalition gathered at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) offices to speak out against the plant, and to then deliver petitions to the ODFW signed by 4,000 Oregonians who oppose the proposed facility.

Baked Ziti Ingredients 1 pound dry ziti pasta 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil 1 onion, sliced 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary 6 cloves garlic, chopped 1/2 pound ground beef 1/2 pound ground pork sausage 1 1/2 (26 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce salt to taste 1 (6 ounce) package provolone cheese, sliced 3/4 cup sour cream 3/4 cup cottage cheese 1 (6 ounce) package mozzarella cheese, shredded 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese Directions 1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain. 2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in large,

heavy skillet over medium heat. Cook onion in oil until tender. Stir in rosemary and garlic. Transfer to a small bowl. 3. Place ground beef and sausage in the skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Stir in the onion mixture and the spaghetti sauce. Season with salt. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes. 4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. In the prepared dish, layer 1/2 of the cooked pasta, provolone cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, and a little less than 1/2 of the meat mixture. Then layer the rest of the pasta, mozzarella cheese, remaining meat mixture, and Parmesan cheese. 5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until heated through and cheeses are melted. Yield: 12 servings

poses the deal because a bottled water facility would lead to the commodification of Oregon’s public water resources, and potentially jeopardize local wildlife, especially native salmon and steel head species. “Profiting from doing good? “Sure, I buy it. Plenty of good, green companies, large and small, are doing just that everyday. “But Nestlé? The world's biggest food maker? The gigantic Swiss bottled water manufacturer that runs roughshod over community water rights? The one waging costly legal battles when residents object to them buying up their rivers and aquifers? “I don't think so. Despite whatever the corporation's chairman would like to think. “Nestlé had its annual shareholders meeting and executives touted a rosy new community siting strategy for their bottling plants. “Except many in the communities where Nestlé operates don't buy it, either. This includes the residents of Wacissa, Fl., where the company is planning to pump an estimated 450,000 gallons every single day from the pristine Wacissa River and ship it via tanker trunk to its Madison bottling plant. The coalition of residents fighting Nestlé’s plans believes strongly that pumping large volumes of naturally-occurring water from the naturally occurring Wacissa spring system will negatively impact the river's ecosystem. They have set up a website, held community meetings, and are encouraging as many people as possible to contact local officials. Last week, they held a river cleanup. “Corporate Accountability International, a Boston-based non-profit that makes it its business to stand up to Nestlé, is working with Wacissa residents to publish an open letter in the local newspaper that would detail the corporations history of siphoning off public water supplies despite major opposition. Already, 15 groups around the country who are experiencing similar problems with Nestlé in their regions have signed the letter. “As Corporation Accountability International states: ‘The open letter tells it all; Nestlé’s 'community engagement tactics' are nothing more than business as usual, shortcutting environmental reviews, inciting costly legal battles against small town community groups, and weaseling backroom deals with public officials. “Sure, it's not easy being the largest bottled water manufacturer in North America. As the company writes: ‘Nestlé Waters North America (NWNA) faces a unique set of challenges related to managing a natural resource perceived by many as a public good.’ You think?” Continued next week

Ice skating rink at The Garden Faire waits on Mother Nature By Carter Crane The questions have been continual. The pedestrians in Oswego want to know: “Are you putting in an ice skating rink? “When will it be ready?” The answers from those at The Garden Faire in Oswego are yes and not yet. “In fact, you would not believe how often it happens,” John Zidlicky, co-owner with his brother, Z Zidlicky, said. “They talk to me through the fence while waiting for the light to change and shout from the (passing) cars.” The groundwork has been done and now the

Youth-focused tribute to MLK at West Aurora Students and their families are invited to a youth-focused tribute to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Jan. 16, at the West Aurora High School auditorium, 1201 W. New York Street, Aurora. This free event, entitled “Becoming the Dream -- Remember! Celebrate! Act!,” will include song, dance, and drama performances by student groups from several area high schools, including West Aurora. It will feature the Aurora All Youth Choir directed by Arlene Hawks. Any elementary or middle school student is invited to participate in the choir. The uniform consists of black pants and a white top. There are two practices left, 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., January 14, at the Fred Rodgers Community Center, 501 College Ave., Aurora and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., January 16 in the West High auditorium.

wait for frigid weather is on, one day at a time. “The rink is a fish pond now,” John Zidlicky said. “Oh, there is a little ice, but not much. Everything is set for Mother Nature to help us.” The Garden Faire rink is in front of the store in a place used most of the year for plant display. “We will have until March for the skating rink,” John said. “Then we will turn it back to the plants.” Christmas trees were in the front just a few weeks ago. When the time comes at the frozen moment, perhaps Saturday by forecast, the crew will begin

at 11 p.m. to shoot water into the rink area in intervals until 3 a.m. or 4 a.m. so that the frozen surface can develop. The goal is to have six inches of water. The admission charge likely will be $3 per person and because of insurance purposes a waiver will have to be signed. The rink will be open during store hours, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.. Hot chocolate and coffee will be served. With anticipated success and use of the rink the questions next year likely will be when and not what.

Three questions asked at rally in Batavia on economy By Dustin Krueger In front of a Bank of America building, at the corner of Randall Road and Fabyan Parkway in Batavia January 6, Mary Shesgreen of Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice (NIJWJ) read out loud to the assembled group, recent statistics released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Bureau of Labor Statistics released the jobs/ unemployment report January 6, for December 2011. The report shows an increase in the number of non-farm jobs of an additional 200,000. The number of unemployed persons is 13.1 Million, which gives an overall unemployment rate of 8.5%. This is a small improvement from the (revised) November unemployment rate, which was 8.7%. “The headlines are going to be saying that things are getting better, but we need to ask at least three questions to make sense of these and related num-

bers,” Shesgreen said. “First, at this rate how long will it take to get back to the last relatively low unemployment rate from the year 2007? “In the fourth quarter of 2007 the unemployment rate was 4.8%. It took a year to bring the unemployment rate down from 9.1% last year to 8.5%. At that rate, 0.6% reduction per year, it will take six years to get back to the 2007 unemployment rate, if everything goes well. So the future does not look that bright at the current rate of improvement. “So the American economy is very slowly recovering from the debacle caused by deregulation of the financial sector. The American dream for many people has turned into the American nightmare. “Who is disproportionately paying the price in terms of, not just income, but of spoiled careers, families lives and futures?

Kane County Board approves agreement with AFSCME The Kane County Board voted Tuesday to authorize an agreement with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3966 concerning the 45 Health Department union employees who were laid off November 8, 2010. The agreement includes a monetary payout and an extension of recall rights to three years, up from one year. “This closes a difficult chapter in the history of the Kane County Health Department,” said Paul Kuehnert, Health Department Executive Director. “I feel this is a fair settlement for both sides. I look forward to working together with AFSCME, and

our staff represented by AFSCME, as we continue to provide the essential services of public health to Kane residents.” Each of the 45 union employees will receive $500, plus an amount that would have been received for 16 days of work and in short term sick day accrual benefits had those employees remained actively employed through November 30, 2010. The affected employees will be eligible to be recalled for employment for up to three years, an increase from the original one-year. —Kane County Health Department

African-Americans is 15.8%. For Hispanics they are 11%. And for 16-19 year-old teenagers, 23.1%, well above the national average and virtually unchanged from the previous month. These deserve much more attention than they are going to get. So minorities, young people, the long term unemployed, and discouraged workers are major groups who are victims of the current recession. “We need Congress and the president to stop all this nonsense of deficit reduction and to pass and implement a serious federal jobs program, and we in particular support HR870 which institutes a financial transaction tax, that’s a tax on all trades, stock bonds, derivatives, and currency. “Second, we need Congress and the president to force the banks who are the major cause of this See page 13

Over-population a building problem for the future I pulled the following statistics recently off of the BBC World News Service website, and I found them quite alarming. As you read these words, remember that the population of the United States of America is approaching 312,000,000. On average, there are 484 births and 288 deaths per hour for a net increase of 196; add to that 113 immigrants entering the country every hour, and the total becomes 597 new persons. Moreover, the world’s population recently has exceeded seven Billion persons; it wasn’t so long ago that the six-Billion mark had been reached. One of the explanations for this increase is that human beings are living longer than ever, thanks to modern medicine. In olden times, the mortality rate was much higher due to disease, hard labor, and unsanitary living conditions; without preventive medicine, labor-saving devices, and proper sanitation, living to a ripe old age was the exception rather than the norm. Now that we are prolonging the lives of those who might otherwise have died at a relatively young age, we face a potential problem of overpopulation. For some perverse reason, increases in population are announced with great pride as if unchecked procreation were a virtue instead of a mere statistic. The proud parents are congratulated for bringing another bundle of joy into the world; they acknowledge the birth as a gift from God and not as the simple biological act that it really is. The whole concept of childbirth has been romanticized since time immemorial because no one wants to dwell on the actual cause of childbirth, sexual intercourse. Sexual intercourse is common to all mammals, and they engage in it in order to pass along their genes to a new generation. Humans do so for the same reason, although they don’t say so in so many words; and

neither do they wish to equate themselves with dogs and lions, and monkeys. They would rather perpetuate the myth that they are divinely created and so are above the other mammals. When it comes to over-population, most of humankind is in a state of denial, much like it is when the subject is global warming. They regard the rest of us as alarmists. Actually, we are alarmists, in the original sense of the word. Those in denial believe that indiscriminate breeding is no threat to the welfare of the race and that there is plenty of room for more bodies. Unfortunately, history tells us otherwise. The historical record is replete with examples of what happens when the number of people outstrips the resources needed to support them. Famine, dehydration, warfare, and death, not quite the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse,” but just as deadly nevertheless, come riding through to reduce the population to manageable proportions, or to wipe it out altogether. Mother Nature has other methods of population control at her disposal, and they are not pretty; their names are Tornado, Flood, Earthquake, Hurricane, and Wildfire, and they are most effective at what they do. Most of these methods could be averted if humans weren’t so concentrated numerically, such as living in urban areas. I am reminded of the 1970s sci-fi film, Soylent Green, in which an overcrowded world resorts to euthanasia centers to reduce the numbers. The bodies of the deceased

There is just so much fertile soil in which to grow food, and that amount is shrinking in order to accommodate more bodies. I am not so naive as to think that we can overcome our social conditioning overnight, but we do have a choice in the matter of stabilizing the population if we have the will-power to make the correct decisions. Otherwise, we may be forced to adopt the one-child-per-couple policy that China now employs. Would that please you, dear reader? The animal-protection people advocate the spaying and neutering of our pets to prevent their over-population. Perhaps we should consider the same for ourselves. Just a thought.

Hats off to knitters for helping keep warm heads of troops Bonnie Bogden, Aurora Public Library paraprofessional II at the West Branch, set a goal in January to collect 1,000 hats for the U.S. Armed Forces in Afghanistan. At of the end of the year, she had collected 1,050 hats. In Afghanistan, troops are exposed to temperatures as cold as 34 degrees below zero. The military issues the soldiers helmets, but not hats to keep their heads warm. The hats provided by the library are made of wool and can be worn beneath the soldier’s helmets. Some of the hats were made by members of the library’s knitting groups. The Sit and Knit group meets at the library’s Main Branch, the Knit Wits meets at the library’s Eola Road Branch, and the Woolly Bully Knitting Group, led by Bogden, meets at the library’s West Branch. Other hats were dropped off or mailed to the library. Hats came to the library from as far away as Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Texas. The library sends the hats to a Daughters of the American Revolution chapter in South Carolina, which forwards them overseas to the troops

In August, Bogden was worried that she might not reach the 1,000-hat goal, but the hats kept coming. She anticipates sending another batch to South Carolina in late January. “If hats continue to come in (for the troops), I will (continue to) send them,” Bogden said. The hats must conform to military specifications. They must be 100% wool and be black, navy, dark brown, army green, or beige. The hats must fit close to the head so they can be worn beneath a

economic disaster to stop foreclosing on peoples homes where layoffs have caused the inability to make mortgage payments. “Finally, we need Congress and the president to extend unemployment benefits beyond the current two months and to begin addressing the underlying causes of our current economic mess. “Bank of America was recently found to have diverted African American and Latino borrowers and directed them, or coned them, or charmed them, into mortgages that had ARM components in them and mortgages that had much higher interest rates. Even if these African American or Latino families had

exactly credit rating, income, financial backing as a white borrower it was the African Americans and Latinos families that got hooked into these tricky mortgages which then caused disaster for that family. This is an example of institutional racism and how it still exists in our society.... After decades of discrimination in housing which was carried on by red-lining, real estate companies, and mortgage banks, were very much a part of that and they were keeping it up all the way through the last decade. And we’re hear today to say, “Bank of America you should be ashamed of yourself. “The other thing we want to say about this Bank of America is that

With this year’s goal met, what lies ahead for 2012? “I think (the knitting group is) going to do something else,” Bogden said. “We discussed it and we have several ideas.” One idea mentioned was to help a church on Au-

Prior to the foreclosure crisis there was already a social economic disparity of unemployment with blacks and Hispanics.... Even though black and Hispanics have been

affected greatly, we’re still apart of that 99% that are all being affected greatly. “We need to come back to our communities and look at our neighbors and help one another. When we see events that are happening, show up and support each other. “Instead of looking for someone else to make change, let us make the change. Get away from these big banks and go to these small community banks, start dealing with these credit unions again, and get to know the people inside the bank. Bank of America doesn’t know us.

Here’s the buzz on learning to be a beekeeper When most folks think of bees, two thoughts immediately come to mind: Honey and stings. Although that's what made bees famous, these fascinating insects have plenty of other attributes. If you'll pardon the occasional sting, they really are great friends to have. Some folks even consider them pets. Hillard Bryant is one. His backyard is a virtual bee hive, where thousands of bees live year-round. A certified beekeeper, Bryant's interest in bees has turned into a full-fledged hobby that is equal parts enjoyable and rewarding. Bryant will share his experiences and pass along plenty of insight with a pair of classes at Blackberry Farm by way of the Fox Valley Park District. Beekeeping 101, a two-hour class January 19, will explain the benefits of managing your own bee hives, harvesting honey, and the equipment needed to get started. Beginning Beekeeper will be a six-session class that meets once a week starting February 2. Because Spring is the best time of year to set up hives, this class will show how to assemble and maintain hives. Participants will learn how honeybees magically work together so they can have their hives ready when the flowers begin to bloom. Getting started is easy. Three-pound packages of about 10,000 bees, including a queen, are typically available through the first part of May. They are shipped through the mail (yes!) and cost about $50., available from various supply houses. Buy at least two boxes to start; these are made of wood and typically are nine inches by 15 inches. One box is where the bees live, where the queen lays her eggs, where the workers bring honey and nectar, and where the young are raised. The second box is where the bees store the honey they will need to survive Winter. Each of these boxes holds about 10 frames, and each must have a sheet of beeswax that the bees

will use to build the combs. Finally, you will need one to three honey supers, the containers where the bees put the excess honey that the beekeeper gets to keep. Bryant said each hive can produce up to 140 pounds of honey per year, making beekeeping a hobby that’s as profitable as it is fun. “It can be quite lucrative if you want it to be,” said Bryant. “Besides all the honey, there are so many side products that can be made from beeswax such as cosmetics and lip balm that, along with the honey, can be sold as gifts at craft shows.” Get rid of the Robitussin and other cough medications, too. A teaspoon of honey does wonders, and is terrific for building immunity against allergies. Bees and their pollinating powers play a crucial role in providing us with vegetables and fruits. Next time you’re in the produce section, thank a honeybee. Without bees, those items would be scarce and their prices sky-high. Bryant, who was introduced to beekeeping by local expert Harry Patterson, is now doing the same, spreading his beekeeping wisdom through mentoring. He keeps bees year-round, because they spend Winter in the hive, and says his neighbors hardly notice the large swarms that frequent his yard.

And about those stings? Well, it seems bees get a bad rap. “Bees get the blame, but it’s actually the yellow jackets (wasps) that are the culprits,” said Bryant. “Bees are quite friendly, and very hard workers.” Jeff Long is the public relations manager for the Fox Valley Park District.

Beekeeping and pesticides: Could the end be near? By Dr. Lawrence DuBose, Ph.D. Retired First in a series Beekeepers must become aggressive in finding positive answers why their bees continue to be killed. Another research grant, with more input by beekeepers, is needed to identify what is killing our honey bees. The random list of possibilities presented by university studies funded by chemical companies is not acceptable. Since 1979, I have been associated with beekeeping continuously. In my youth, I had my first hive at age 13. Overall I have been associated with beekeeping for more than 40 years. Excluding Winter losses, all 10 of my hives were lost at two locations in southern Illinois when either a pesticide or a herbicide was used near the bee hives. Two neighbors lost their colonies at the same time. At Kline Creek Farm in DuPage County, Illinois I have had bees die five times in the last three years during the months of September and October. I realize that bees may die for multiple reasons but during these months it was certainly not diet, nor travel stress. Recommendations for beekeeper action: • The American Beekeeping Fed-

eration must be prompt in responding to misleading articles, reports, and studies. • The ABF must demand unbiased studies of the possible impact of pesticides on birth defects. Some believe ADRD, autism, asthma, and other children's ailments have increased with the use of pesticides which are sprayed on our food as it is growing. • The ABF must push for a study of gardening chemicals and their possible relationship to Parkinson's Disease. • The incidents of cancer by golf course managers is greater than those not so employed according to the book, A Spring without Bees. ABF should request further investigation on this matter. • Beekeeping programs should facilitate communications and recording of information about beekeepers who have suffered large colony losses. • U.S. beekeepers should follow the lead of France and the United Kingdom by sending petitions to our representatives in Washington, D.C. We must become more vocal. • Pesticides are blamed for killing small pets. Is that not a clue that our children playing on the same treated grass are at risk? Soccer parents in

New England successfully banned certain pesticides from use on their children's playing fields. The same concerns should be echoed in Illinois, Texas, California, and other states. Emphasis should be placed upon adhering to guidelines such as those of Midwest Ecological Landscaping Association. Preventing cancer, autism, and asthma by restricting the use of certain pesticides is worth the inconvenience when there are other options. A person reviewing early beekeeping literature, Langstroth's Hive and the Honey Bee, by Lorenzo Lorraine Langstroth, 1810-1895, and, Fifty Years Among the Bees, by Dr. C. C. Miller, 1830-1920, will find no mention of pesticides killing bees. In the 1930s, there were two professional beekeepers in my hometown of Falfurrias, Texas. I once helped Mr. Richardson take off supers of honey and was involved in extracting honey in Mr. Bowen's honey house. Neither beekeeper lost bees to pesticides in the 1930s. One of my uncles had started keeping bees before 1920 and had 40 hives in 1930. After he sprayed his cotton crop in 1934, he had boxes with dead bees. I had taken two of my bee hives to another uncle's

farm in hopes of getting some clover honey. He sprayed a crop with an insecticide, and I had two boxes of dead bees. A third uncle kept bees in the small town of Pharr, Texas in the Rio Grande Valley. His bees were in an urban area where pesticides were not used and his bees survived. Keeping bees in the 1930s was quite simple. I never fed nor medicated my bees. The brood foundation was never changed. Re-queening was taken care of by the bees. In 1950, the remaining four hives were still producing honey. At that time, the main problems for the beekeeper were the foulbrood disease and wax moths that would generally kill weak hives. Concerns about pesticides killing bees were developing in the 1930s. The April 1935 issue of National Geographic Magazine pointed out that with the tractor replacing the horse, forests being cut down and wetlands being drained, more land was being farmed. These factors would result in more insects; consequently more insecticides were being used, and these new chemicals made no distinction between harmful and beneficial insects. Continued next week

Yorkville, Kaneland, in gear By Carter Crane There was a West Aurora High School flavor to the pivotal boys basketball game last Friday in Yorkville. Yorkville High School sprinted to an early 20-point lead in a 56-51 victory over visiting Kaneland in a Northern Illinois Big 12 East game. It was the second victory this season by Yorkville over Kaneland, even though the defeat left the visiting Knights in a tie for first place in the division with Rochelle, each 3-1. Yorkville shot well in the second half of its 61-50 victory over Kaneland in the semifinal game of the 24-team Plano Christmas Classic. The two teams, each with a good won-loss record, will play for a third time February 17 in the next-to-last conference game at Kaneland. “We will look forward to the third time against Yorkville and hopefully that will be meaningful in the conference race,” third-year Kaneland head

coach Brian Johnson said. Johnson and Yorkville head coach Dan McGuire have connections to West Aurora. Johnson was an assistant varsity coach to Gordon Kerkman in the 2008-2009 season. McGuire was a student at West Aurora and a reserve on the 1997 team which finished in second place in the state tournament. Both coaches have helped to propel their teams into prominence this season. McGuire, in his first season as head coach following the retirement of Jerry Farber after last season, was a varsity assistant for four years. Both teams played other rivals one day after their game in Saturday night matches. Yorkville, which dropped to 11-4 overall following a 67-51 defeat at Oswego Saturday night, is in a threeway tie for third place in the NIB12E with Morris and DeKalb.

urday night to visiting Naperville North, 53-51, in its bid to take full control of the DuPage Valley Conference race. West Aurora had defeated Wheaton North Friday night to improve to 4-0 in the DuPage Valley. Naperville North had maintained pace. The showdown last Saturday meant that regardless of the outcome nine games remained in conference play. West Aurora led Naperville North 49-41 with 3:11 remaining in regulation. Naperville North did not go away, however, and continued to played tight defense. West Aurora did not score another field goal and added only two free throws with 12.2 seconds remaining in the game. “We were not patient enough,” See page 18 All eyes are focused on a scoretying three-point attempt in the waning seconds by Plainfield North’s Marcus Fair in a Southwest Prairie Conference game last Friday.

Defense remains the hallmark of Metea Valley success By Carter Crane Last week Metea Valley High School head coach Bob Vozza said he was surprised his undefeated Mustangs were ranked high in the Chicago area newspaper rankings. But, Metea Valley, in its third season as a school and second varsity year, is one of a handful of teams undefeated this season. Plainfield East, Simeon, and Proviso East is some of the fast company the swift Mustangs were keeping after week-

end boys varsity basketball games. “I am shocked we are so high,” said Vozza in his first job as a varsity basketball coach and third year at the school. He had been a long-standing and effective assistant coach at rival District 204 Neuqua Valley. “I know the ups and downs of high school basketball.” Two days later Metea Valley used its defensive magic to defeat Lake Park, 61-50, and break he

first-place Upstate Eight Valley tie with the Lancers. Metea Valley moved to 5-0 in the conference and 14-0 overall. Lake Park dropped to 4-1 and 10-4 overall. “I was pleased with the defense, especially in the first half.,” Vozza said. Metea Valley led at halftime, 16-14. “We continue to execute our half-court defense,” See page 18

It must be an eight-team playoff, or, to start at lease a four-team playoffs. The playoffs can use the bowl system. It is not a case of either one way or the other.

Northern Illinois conference, bowl champions

Mid-American ends bowls on rise; Big Ten ride rough By Woodrow Carroll Then there was none. With Alabama’s 21-0 shutout victory over LSU in the BCS championship game Monday night, the bowl season came to an end. There were 35 games up and 35 games down! The collegiate football season has run its course. The Big Ten Conference suffered through another rough postseason. The Mid-American Conference (MAC) was far more positive in its ending to the football season. Northern Illinois’ 38-20 comeback victory over Arkansas State in the GoDaddy.com Bowl Sunday night highlighted the type of year it was for the MAC.

Trailing 13-0 at one point, the Huskies ran off 31 straight points to finish off Arkansas State and end with an 11-3 record. It was a first for the Huskies in that they were a winner in the MAC championship game then followed that up with a bowl victory. Two Northern Illinois victories came after the conclusion of the regular season for the football program in DeKalb. Recent years have not been good for Big Ten teams in bowl games. Over the past two seasons combined, the Big Ten’s record is 7-11 in postseason. Surprisingly, the lone Big Ten School to take bowl victories each of the past two seasons is Illinois.

Metea Valley defense

Vozza said. “We played very good defense against Schaumburg (in the championship game of the first-year Hinsdale South holiday tournament). One of the other undefeated teams, Plainfield East, ironically a third-year school, the same as Metea Valley, defeated Schaumburg in the championship game of the St. Charles East Thanksgiving Tournament. Metea Valley’s tallest starter is 6-3, but the Mustangs compensate with great defense, depth and chemistry. They worked their way up to 10 or 11 deep. The seniors form the nucleus with their threeyear bond as full-time players. Two juniors, however, played prominent roles in the victory over Lake Park. Sean Davis, a 6-2 junior has played a key role. Trayvond Taylor, a 6-0 junior has not played significant minutes. The two players, however, were among the top contributors against Lake Park.

Kurt Busch is starting over with Phoenix Racing next season. At age 33, the older of the Busch brothers has plenty of time to rebuild his racing career (John Clark/NASCAR This Week photo) He had spats with writers. But what brought him down was an amateur video of his profane and snarky confrontation with beloved ESPN reporter Jerry Punch in the garage area of HomesteadMiami Speedway. It went “viral” on YouTube, and Kurt Busch learned the negative version of that particular cliche. Who would’ve believed that a talent as prodigious as Kurt Busch could be undermined mainly by words and not deeds? NASCAR is part

of the sporting mainstream now, and with it comes unexpected consequences. Corporate image holds much more sway now than it did in, say, 1986, when the late Tim Richmond was in his prime. Nowadays a driver must not only be successful, but also marketable. Kurt Busch now says he has learned lessons he failed to learn earlier in his career. Corporate NASCAR’s response? “Prove it.” When Busch needed friends, he found he didn’t have many.

See page 19

from page 15

Down a Few Pegs What a difference a year makes for Kurt Busch. A year ago he was driving a yellow Dodge from the legendary stable of Roger Penske and getting ready to win the Budweiser Shootout. Now he’s stuck trying to make the best of it with the middling team of James Finch. Finch’s Phoenix Racing has had its moments — such as Brad Keselowski’s upset victory at Talladega in 2009 — but it’s not a place Busch could possibly have planned to be. Busch’s wounds, by his own admission, were selfinflicted, but they had nothing to do with his driving prowess, which is considerable. The Las Vegas native, whose career rivals his brother Kyle’s in terms of both success and controversy, berated his crew chief and others via in-car radio.

Both this season and last, Illinois concluded with a final record of 7-6. That winning season was forged thanks to the Fighting Illini’s beating Baylor, 38-14, in the Texas Bowl last season and a 2014 victory over UCLA in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl December 31, 2011. The Big Ten was 3-5 in bowl games a year ago, and 4-6 this time. How much of a struggle was it for Big Ten schools in the postseason? Of the four Big Ten schools to walk off the field victorious in bowl games, Illinois’ six-point margin of victory was the

Now he has to start over from somewhere near square one. He has to rebuild a career. At age 33, he still has plenty of time. If he can somehow lift Phoenix Racing’s performance in a tangible way, it will impress his detractors, even if it doesn’t convert them. *** Monte Dutton covers motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.)

Kenny Obendorf scored two of his nine points in the first against Lake Park and he is the team’s leading scorer. The team fought through the dwindling offense and turned the defense into points. Obendorf was named the Most Valuable Player of the Hinsdale South tournament. “Some of us have played together since seventh grade,” 6-4 senior Milan Bojanic said. “All of the seniors played together as freshmen. “The coach really stresses playing together and defense.” Vozza’s defensive orientation stems from his high school days at Waubonsie Valley when it was automatic that he would guard the other team’s best perimeter player. Metea Valley defeated District 204 rival Neuqua Valley earlier in the season and was set to play the other District 204 high school, Waubonsie Valley Wednesday of this week. “The game is bigger for the players than for me,” Vozza said after the Mustangs improved to 13-0 against Lake Park. “For me, yes, it is the high school I went to (20 years ago), but most of the coaches are no longer there, so the feeling is not strong. “Waubonsie Valley now is mostly a conference opponent.” Following Waubonsie Valley, Metea will play host to St. Charles North Saturday, Jan. 14 at 6 p.m.. Waubonsie Valley will play host to East Aurora Saturday. “We have a special senior group,” Vozza said. “The juniors are growing up. “I don’t talk to the players about being undefeated and about being ranked (sixth in one poll in the Chicagoland area). “Our players have good character and know we can lose at any time.”

West Aurora

from page 15

West head coach Gordon Kerkman said. “We didn’t the ball to Juwan (Starks) enough.” Starks scored 15 points and included three nice three-point field goals. Dontrell Walker scored 16 points on four three-point baskets. “Juwan is a marked man,” Kerkman said. “It is difficult for him with players draped all over him and not getting many calls.” West Aurora, which fell to 12-3 overall and 4-1 in the DuPage Valley, will play Friday at last place West Chicago, 3-10 and 05 and play host to Lockport at 7:30 p.m. Sunday against Lockport. West Aurora was tied for second place in the DuPage with Glenbard North, 7-6 and 4-1. Glenbard East was in fourth place, 8-5 and 3-2. “Starks has been more of a leader,” Kerkman said and that should help him and help us.” —Carter Crane

lead, and staged comebacks only to come up short. This time it was an aborted comeback on the part of the Wildcats. Texas A&M won, 33-22, to give Northwestern a ninth consecutive bowl defeat. Trailing 30-7 going into the fourth quarter, Northwestern pulled to within 30-22 before running out of gas. It was a battle of two teams with 6-6 records. The Mid-American Conference, the Big Ten’s backyard little brother, won as many bowl games as the Big Ten, and, the MAC needed only five

games to do so. Purdue, of the Big Ten, spoiled MAC perfection by defeating Western Michigan. Northern Illinois defeated Ohio University, 23-20, in the MAC championship game after falling behind 20-0. In arrears only 13-0 to Arkansas State in the first quarter in Mobile, Ala. the Huskies were on top 2113 by halftime and in control. Temple in the New Mexico Bowl, Ohio in the Potato Bowl, and Toledo in the Military Bowl did the MAC proud along with Northern Illinois by winning their respective bowl games.

Aurora Business United range: Goals to Ruth’s Ministry By Carter Crane The monthly meeting of the Aurora Business United was held at Backthird Audio on Stolp Street in downtown Aurora Friday, Jan. 6. There were a variety of speakers at the recording studio prior to hosts Benjie Hughes and Kyle Schmidt. Backthird is the site of the record and CD Made in Aurora. Julia Skeesick, a personal development coach, talked about setting personal goals. She teaches a two-hour class at Rush Copley Hospital. “Be resolute and committed to your goal,” she said to the

group of approximately 35 in attendance. Linda Martin is the executive director of Ruth’s Ministry which works with those who commit crimes. “There are 267 kids n prison who need a dialogue,” she said. There will be a meeting at 10 a.m. at the old Elks Club in Aurora on Stolp for artists who would use the Elks Club for their art displays. Benji Hughes said that in dealing with musical artists it is necessary to set boundaries in recording sessions.

“Authority must be established,” he said. “There are three principles, boundaries, authority, and flexibility.” His teamwork with Kyle Schmidt in providing artists offers flexibility. Virden E. Von Qualen of Dynamic Sales said that he is interested in starting a Fox Valley Chamber of Commerce which would range between Interstate 90 to the north and Interstate 80 to the south. The next meeting will be Friday, Feb. 3 at a site to be determined.

Collection for Kyle, Ricky Lee fundraiser June 3 for Honor Flight The Fox Valley Veterans Breakfast Club discussed attending a graduation at the Great Lakes Naval Training base in North Chicago in the Spring. More information will be supplied later. The group met Thursday, Jan. 5 at Grandma’s Table in Montgomery and meets every other Thursday at 7 a.m..

The group took up a collection for Kyle Moser, the Oswego Marine who suffered devastating injuries in Afghanistan and will be at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C. for a long period. The collection was to send his grandmother in Arizona by plane to see Kyle in Washignton. Laura Mast of Rebuilding Togeth-

er Aurora talked briefly to the approximately 50 in attendance about applying for help in maintaining and improving property by apply to the organization. The next mass workday will be in April. Group moderator and motivator Herschel Luckinbill said that Ricky Lee will be in concert at the Para-

Aurora ensign on rescue ship of Iranian sailors According to the Associated Press January 6 the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Kidd rescued an Iranian fishing boat that had been commandeered by suspected pirates just days after Tehran warned the United States to keep its warships out of the Persian Gulf. U.S. Navy Ensign Hans Lauzen of Aurora is serving as Combat Electronics Officer on the USS Kidd on his first deployment, after graduation and being commissioned at the University of Southern California in May 2011. American forces flying off of the

guided-missile destroyer responded to a distress call from the Iranian vessel, the Al Molai, which had been held captive for more than 40 days, the U.S. Navy said Friday. The Kidd was sailing in the Arabian Sea, after leaving the Persian Gulf, when it came to the Iranian sailors’ aid. A U.S. Navy team boarded the ship Thursday, Jan. 5 and detained 15 suspected Somali pirates. They had been holding the 13-member Iranian crew hostage and were using the boat as a “mother ship” for pirating opera-

tions in the Persian Gulf. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said, “This is an incredible story...a great story,” and explained that the very same American ships that the Islamic republic protested for recently traveling through the Strait of Hormuz were responsible for the Iranian vessel’s recovery. The episode occurred after a week of hostile rhetoric from Iranian leaders, including a statement by Iran’s Army chief that American vessels are

no longer welcome in the Gulf. Iran warned that it could block the Strait of Hormuz, the strategic waterway that carries to market much of the oil pumped in the Middle East. Nulan said the Navy had made a humanitarian gesture in rescuing and taking the Iranians on board, feeding them, and ensuring that they were in good health before setting them safely on their way. Ensign Lauzen is the son of Illinois State senator Chris and Sarah Lauzen of Aurora.

Salt & Pepper Shakers

Adopting Dogs From Puppy Mills DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My family would like to adopt a shelter dog, and a recent news story about several dogs rescued from horrible conditions in a “puppy mill” facility really captured our hearts. However, the shelter caring for these dogs is not immediately putting them up for adoption, and it says there will be stricter requirements for those who want to adopt them. Why is this? — Karl in South Florida DEAR KARL: Many shelter pets come with their own special set of behavioral quirks, often due to the stress and trauma of being abandoned at a shelter. But dogs (and cats and other pets) that suffer especially traumatic situations, such as abuse or starvation or neglect, can have a very difficult time adapting to home life. Because of this, many shelters have developed special policies regarding these rescues. As you found, the puppy-mill dogs were not immediately put up for adoption; they’re being treated and evaluated. Some may never be considered safe to

adopt. Once dogs are considered healthy enough to adopt, the shelter is following guidelines to make their transition to a new home as smooth as possible. For instance, it may not allow a puppy-mill rescue to go to a home that has kids under age 10. First-time pet owners will likely be discouraged or outright not allowed to adopt. Adopters may need to attend special classes, and the shelter may ask to make follow-up visits to the dog’s new home. Many rescues need a great deal of one-on-one attention, love and patience. If you’re an experienced dog owner, meet the guidelines and are willing to take on the challenge of rehabilitating a rescued dog, go for it. But if you’re not sure, then consider very carefully whether your family is ready to care for a rescued pet.

Q:

Several weeks ago, I found a pair of salt and pepper shakers at a flea market. The set was made by the U.S. Glass Company, and the pattern, in dark amethyst, seems to be “California.” I paid $25, and the condition is good to excellent. — Robert, Lyons, N.Y. Your set was made in about 1900 and probably would retail in the $135 to $150 range. The U.S. Glass Company was actually a consolidation of more than a dozen companies, all based in Pittsburgh. Although it went into receivership in 1907, several of the companies continued to produce ware for several more decades. The rare amethyst color is one of the factors that makes your salt and pepper shakers particularly valuable. *** My dad played in several big bands as a sideman throughout the 1930s. He appeared on numerous recordings, and he is missing at least a dozen cuts he is certain he did. Needless to say, I am scrambling to track down the original 78-rpm issues. Can you help me? — Steve, Binghamton, N.Y. Tracking down older recordings can sometimes be difficult. It is becoming hard to find 78s even in thrift shop. Part of this is because most people have discarded the turnta-

More Vets Landing Government Jobs The effort to put more veterans into government jobs is paying off. John Berry, director of the Office of Personnel Management, recently gave a speech at the Veteran Employment Symposium “boot camp” and gave some of the preliminary statistics for fiscal 2011: —Hiring percentages are at a 20-year high, up 26 percent from last year and 24 percent over 2009. (That’s when an Executive Order was issued, creating the Veterans Employment Initiative.) —Out of 24 federal departments, 22 of them hired more veterans than they did in 2009. —Out of those 24 departments, 23 of them hired more disabled veterans than they did in 2009. —Veterans accounted for 29 percent of new hires. That comes to 4.5 percent over 2009 and 2.9 percent over 2010. Not only that, but a pilot program was approved during the meeting to hire formerly homeless veterans, starting soon. The programs will give veterans a chance to work in various depart-

A Focus on The History of Labor January 12 through January 18 January 12 Novelist Jack London is born. His classic definition of a scab—someone who would cross a picketline and take a striker’s job: “After God had finished the rattlesnake, the toad, the vampire, He had some awful substance left with which He made a scab. A scab is a two-legged animal with a cork-screw soul, a water-logged brain, a combination backbone of jelly and glue. Where others have hearts, he carries a tumor of rotten principles” - 1876. Seattle mayor Ole Hanson orders police to raid an open-air mass meeting of shipyard workers in an attempt to prevent a general strike. Workers were brutally beaten. The strike began the following month, with 60,000 workers walking out in solidarity with some 25,000 metal tradesmen 1919. President Franklin Roosevelt creates the National War Labor Board to mediate labor disputes during World War II.

Kennedy signs Executive Order 10988, guaranteeing federal workers the right to join unions and bargain collectively - 1962. January 13 The original Tompkins Square Riot. As unemployed workers demonstrated in New York’s Tompkins Square Park, a detachment of mounted police charged into the crowd, beating men, women, and children with billy clubs. Declared Abram Duryee, the Commissioner of Police: “It was the most glorious sight I ever saw....” - 1874. Chicano citrus workers strike in Covina, Calif. - 1919. (Exact date uncertain) As the nation debates a constitutional amendment to reign in the widespread practice of brutally overworking children in factories and fields, U.S. District Judge G.W. McClintic expresses concern, instead, about child idleness - 1924. January 14 Clinton-era OSHA issues confined spaces standard to prevent more than 50 deaths and 5,000 serious injuries annually for workers who enter confined spaces - 1993. Pennsylvania Superior Court rules bosses can fire workers for being gay - 1995. Some 14,000 General Electric employees strike for two days to protest the company’s midcontract decision to shift an average of $400 in additional health care co-payments on to each worker - 2003. January 15 Martin Luther King, Jr. born - 1929. The Pentagon, to this day the largest office building in the world, is dedicated just 16 months after groundbreaking. At times of peak employment 13,000 workers labored on the project - 1943. January 16 The United States Civil Service Commission was established as the Pendleton Act went into effect - 1883. Thousands of Palmer Raids detainees win right to meet with lawyers and attorney representation at deportation hearings. “Palmer” was Alexander Mitchell Palmer, U.S. Attorney General under Woodrow Wilson. Palmer believed communism was “eating its way into the homes of the American workman,” and socialists were causing most of the country’s social problems - 1920. Former UAW president Leonard Woodcock dies in Ann Arbor, Mich. at age 89. He had succeeded Walter Reuther and led the union from 1970 to 1977 - 2001.

The militarization of local police may include tanks

as Blackhawk helicopters, machine guns, grenade By John W. Whitehead “If we’re training cops as soldiers, giving them launchers, battering rams, explosives, chemical equipment like soldiers, dressing them up as sol- sprays, body armor, night vision, rappelling gear, diers, when are they going to pick up the mentality and armored vehicles. Some have tanks. ” Yet, appearances to the contrary, the American of soldiers? If you look at the police department, their creed is to protect and to serve. A soldier’s mission police force is not supposed to be a branch of the military, nor is it a private security force is to engage his enemy in close combat for the reigning political faction. It is an and kill him. Do we want police officers aggregation of the countless local civilto have that mentality? Of course not.” ian units that exist for a sole purpose: —Arthur Rizer, former civilian police To serve and protect the citizens of each officer and member of the military and every American community. Take a close look at your local police It is particularly telling that whereofficers, the ones who patrol your neighas in the past, law enforcement strived borhoods and ensure the safety of your to provide a sense of security, trust, roadways. Chances are they look less and comfort, the impression conveyed and less like the benevolent keepers of today is one of power, dominance and the peace who patrolled Andy Griffith’s inflexible authority. However, this Mayberry and more like inflexible extransformation of local police into militensions of the military. As journalist tary units did not happen overnight.

Rather, the evolution ney Fife could be using grenade launchhas been so subtle that most American ers and a tank to keep the peace.” This John W.

Yet, little by little, police authority ing image of the police within communities, and the expanded, one weapon after another was added to growing idea that the police can and should use any the police arsenal, and one exception after another was made to the standards that historically have means necessary to maintain order. Moreover, as an investigative report by Andrew restrained police authority. What began with the militarization of the poBecker and G.W.

Combined with body armor and other more than $34 Billion in federal government grants apparel, many officers look more and more like com- made available to local police agencies in the wake of 9/11 “ha[ve] fueled a rapid, broad transformation bat troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.” To our detriment, local police, clad in jackboots, of police operations… across the country.

had previously only been seen in war zones. The 50person police department in Oxford, Ala., has acquired $2-3 Million worth of equipment in recent years, including M-16s and remote-controlled robots. One popular piece of equipment, the BearCat, a “16,000-pound bulletproof truck equipped with battering rams, gun ports, tear-gas dispensers and radiation detectors” which costs $237,000, has been sold to more than 500 local agencies. Police agencies are beginning to use domestically drones, pilotless, remote-controlled aircraft that have been used extensively in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Federal Aviation Administration already has issued 266 testing permits to local police agencies seeking to employ drone technology. AeroVironment Inc., a manufacturer of drones, intends to sell 18,000 five-pound drones controlled by way of tablet computer to police departments throughout the country. They are touting the “Switchblade,” a small, one-use drone, that has the ability to track a person from the air and then fly down to their level and explode. Moreover, some police officials are already discussing outfitting these spy drones with nonlethal weapons. With violent crime nationwide at a 40-year low, most of this equipment is not only largely unnecessary but is completely incongruous with the security needs of smaller communities. Yet, whether or not the use of such sophisticated and overblown militarized equipment is justified, many local police units still feel compelled to put it to use. Hence, the widespread misuse of military equipment by law enforcement is a growing and well-documented problem that has resulted in the deaths of innocent people, nonviolent offenders and police officers. Paul Craig Roberts makes clear in his article, “The Empire Turns Its Guns on the Citizenry,” the government, local law enforcement now being extensions of the federal government, has trained its sights on the American people. We have become the enemy. If it is true, which the military asserts, that the key to defeating an enemy is having the technological advantage, then “we the people” are at a severe disadvantage. —The Rutherford Institute
