Using free speech to agree or disagree with thoughts Historically the United States citizens have used their First Amendment rights to express the feelings of individuals about matters serious and inconsequential. There even was a platform in Chicago near downtown called Bughouse Square when it was not uncommon for individuals to say what was on their minds. Not everyone believes in exercising free speech. Every one has that right to think it is wrong to speak openly about society’s ills; to keep quiet, and to let others make the decisions for them. We all have the ability to make our own decisions and to see things differently than the person down the block or across the way. But it is another matter to judge harshly those who exercise their right to make their opinions known. The tea party/baggers did that several years ago. Few take to rallies the way they once did. Now the Occupy Movement shows its concern for the country. Occupy Aurora and Occupy Elgin meet each Saturday. One group will meet in Aurora at 10 a.m. and essentially another group will meet in Elgin at 1 p.m.. Fact is, many cars passing by in either city offer support by honking horns. That is tradition and even some signs offer encouragement with the wording to honk if you agree. Neither group is unruly nor big. There is not necessarily full agreement among the participants Arguments? No! But a person who disagrees with the general sentiments of the Occupy Movement members, an elderly gentleman, has shown up the

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

last few weeks with a sign of his own. The sentiment expressed by the elderly gentleman is evident by his sign. The Saturday before last his sign indicated he favored building the oil pipeline. “He tries to engage in a debate with us,” Mike

Barr of the Occupy Aurora group said recently. But, we do not debate with him. In fact, we ignore him. We don’t want trouble and we can’t ask him to leave. He has just as much right to be there (on Orchard Road and Indian Trail in front of Bank of America) as we do. So we ignore him.” There is humor even among political commentaries. Some of the same members of the group show up so they know who the elderly gentleman is when he approaches them. He goes from Aurora to Elgin. If anyone else has a reason to bring a sign to express an opinion, do so. Or, find another corner and try to get more of us involved in thinking.

Concrete library plans necessary My question about needing a new library in Aurora was answered inadvertently during the public discussions about the pie-in-the-sky visions presented by the Aurora Public Library Board’s John Savage last week. At the end, our aldermen agreed to increase our taxes for the purpose of funding something that seems like a nice skeleton, but certainly lacks much flesh. I learned that the current library building on Stolp and Benton is too small, has insufficient parking, and is in need of repairs and updates that could cost as much as $15 Million. If torn down, there’s the possibility that the crazy “S” curve on Benton and Stolp can be straightened. Spending $30 Million, therefore, now seems reasonable and appropriate from the perspective of making a new replacement. Spending that same amount to fund the new plan is, how can I put this gently, nuts. However, the new vision wins because it contains most of the keywords that excite spenders: New, innovative, cutting edge, technology, community, connections, business growth, and so on. They sound great, but can someone put a specific definition to any of them? In the end, after hours of presentations, I con-

clude that the powers behind this current game want the tax money and they figured out a way to create and sell an exciting emperor that has no clothes. I’m fairly savvy on technology and I can tell you that I heard nothing concrete. Sure, the plans are modern, cutting edge, and allow for almost infinite flexibility, but of what? There’s disdain over old school techniques such as hard printed outlines of a Powerpoint presentation. Except for the building, its size, the parking, and so on, I only see dreams of potential, not descriptions actual. Personally, I favor spending on actual plans. Sure, it is prudent to plan for contingencies, additional growth, parking, security, but we seem to be planning for something nobody is certain about See page 9

Sodas in Summer offer high risk with cancer and sugar With warmer weather most likely we will see a rise in the consumption of sodas. This is a challenge for all of us because it is so easy to stop and have a cold one. In earlier years often we were treated to fresh lemonade, made with real lemons, but today because it is easier and more available so many of us go for sodas or artificial drinks. Good choice? No! When it comes to two of the most popular drinks, Coke and Pepsi, Sherry Brescia of greattastenopain.com tells us why: “After a lengthy legal battle with the state of California, which they lost, Coke and Pepsi must reduce (not take out) a cancer-causing ingredient in their soft drinks. Seems that there were trace amounts of a known carcinogen (4-methylimidazole) in the caramel coloring used by both companies. And even though scientists contend that the trace amount of this carcinogen poses ‘no immediate health concerns,’ the companies are still changing the way they make their coloring, because they don't want to put a cancer warning on the labels, not because

they want to make their drinks healthier. They did ferociously fight against this in court after all. “And here's something else for you to think about... Coke and Pepsi can remove all the 4-methylimidazole on the planet but that still doesn't change the fact that what remains in soda is about as good for you as drinking kerosene, and most assuredly can play a role in the development of cancer, even without this known carcinogen in the formula. “Although many foods and drinks contain sugar, far and away the greatest source of increased sugar consumption around the world over the last two decades has come from the sugar in soft drinks (in the form of high fructose corn syrup). “Here's what goes on inside of you when you "Do the Dew" or make the "Choice of a new generation: “Drinking soda floods your bloodstream with sugar. Your pancreas goes on alert and releases insulin, which tells your cells to absorb the sugar and hence restores a proper blood sugar level. Sounds nice, but it doesn't stop there because the average American drinks at least two to three sodas a day, and that includes preschoolers. Teenagers often drink between seven to 10 sodas per day! “That repeated barrage of sugar stresses your pancreas to keep pumping out the insulin. And if your blood sugar levels (and insulin) remain high for a long time, that lights fires of inflammation in your body. Tumor cells see inflammation as a signal to multiply. “So if you have chronic elevations of glucose (sugar) in your bloodstream, you stand a far greater chance of developing and increasing the size of malignant tumors. "Life begins with Coke?" It's more like ‘Death begins with Coke.’

“Sugar is a food for the harmful bacteria in your gut and so it causes them to multiply out of control. Not only does this harmful bacteria overgrowth (dysbiosis) cause digestive problems, but it increases your risk of cancer. “Your colon is your main line of defense against dangerous pathogens that you ingest. If you have a healthy population of beneficial bacteria in your colon, they attack the invaders and keep you from getting sick. But if you instead have too much of the bad bacteria, the good guys can't do their job... and you pay a heavy price. The ‘dangerous invaders’ that you can ingest include E. coli, salmonella and all types of cancer. “Although it's scary to think about, I bet you didn't know that we all eat cancer-causing pathogens every single day. In addition, your body can actually create carcinogens as it digests concentrated, high-protein foods like meats. That's why even the CDC has jumped on the bandwagon and recommends limiting red meat as part of a cancer prevention diet. “Probiotics (beneficial bacteria) in your gut will help fight these carcinogens because they secrete a whole host of chemicals that counter the carcinogens directly. Plus, probiotics help to break down carcinogens and turn them into nutrients and harmless molecules. “The role of probiotics and colon cancer prevention was studied by a group of Irish scientists and the results were published in Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics. “The study used 20 IL-10 mice (meaning they were at high risk for IBD and colon cancer). Over 16 weeks, half the mice were given Lactobacillus in their milk and the other half drank plain milk. “As expected, half of the milk-only mice developed colon cancer, which is a typical cancer development rate for IL-10 mice. “But only one out of the 10 mice who had Lactobacillus in their milk developed cancer! Plus the probiotic mice had significantly less inflammation in their intestines than the milk-only mice,” Brescia wrote.

Historical enthusiasm observed at St. John’s United Church Mesa de Maria, Mary’s Table, is a series of cooking classes and table spirituality held at St. John’s United Church of Christ on 5th Street in Aurora under the direction of Pastor Cyndi Gavin. The women are no longer strangers, but guests who share in preparing the meal and enjoying it together while they support and care for each other. Best of all, there are maroon-colored aprons to wear while chopping, slicing, dicing, mixing and generally making merry in the kitchen. The Greek word for enthusiasm means “Filled with God.” The kitchen overflows with their enthusiastic food preparations. On the day I visited, there was cilantro and garlic to cut, oranges and grapefruit to squeeze, cucumbers and radishes to dice. There was shrimp waiting to be prepared and an opening smoothie made with blueberries. I wanted a lifetime membership! There, the primary Welcoming One is God, and the miracle of the food and the honor of being at table with loved one or friends and new acquaintances. I fell into the last category! Whether they are together in a circle, shoulders draped in colorful shawls, or at the round table, nourishing themselves with the healthy foods they have just prepared, the women engage in and honor sacramental sharing.

A discussion could include suggestions on how to make Aurora a more holistic, healthier and more just place to live. Because my knowledge of Spanish is minimal, I could say “Buenos dias” to each of them and receive a smile in return. The Quaker Kelton Cobb said that “A table has God’s fingerprints all over it.” There are art lessons and slide shows that illustrate how to eat a balanced diet. For example, a sliced carrot resembles the human eye including the pupil, iris, and radiating lines. Science indicates that carrots help protect the vision, especially night vision. A cluster of grapes resembles the shape of the human heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell. Research shows grapes are profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

Keeping accurate records important; recording essential By John Bogucki, president, and Jim Myer, bargaining chairman United Auto Workers Local 2096 Region 4 (A team report) If you are on medical, worker’s compensation, family leave, military duty, or if you have recently retired or separated, please contact the due’s 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. With that, if you are sick you need to contact your supervisor, not just use the call-in system at Caterpillar. It takes notification and approval. With all this now the Company is not taking your medical premiums or only taking a partial payment. Keep close eye on your pay stubs before and after your leave. Be looking for a bill in the mail for your premium when you are out on leave, because they no longer take it from your benefit check. If you have any questions please call the hall, 815-842-3289. The 99% Spring is coming Groups from every corner of our movement, inspired by the every-day heroes of Occupy Wall Street and Madison Wis., are planning a massive campaign of bold nonviolent direct actions to make the voices of the 99% impossible to ignore. The key is making the 99% Spring as big as possible. That’s why during the weeks of April 9-22, in small towns and big cities all across America, 100,000 will come together for an unprecedented national movementwide nonviolent direct action training. We’ll learn to tell the story of our

economy and what went wrong, we’ll learn the history of nonviolent direct action, and we’ll learn how we can take action and create great change in this country. Local organizations and volunteers are running more than 750 trainings in living rooms, union halls, churches, and community centers nationwide. All we need now is to get as many persons as possible to join in, people like you. Our nation’s greatest steps forward have come when every-day people stood up and took courageous, visionary, morally-compelling direct action from the struggle to secure the vote for women, to the strikes that built power for workers and unions, to the civil rights movement. Now we need to create that kind of change again in America. Last year, from the Wisconsin workers who took over their State Capitol to Occupy Wall Street, we saw a new movement in America using direct action to highlight the massive inequality that’s destroying our country. The 99% Spring is our chance to maintain and broaden that changemaking energy, and learn how we can take action to challenge corporate power, end tax giveaways to the one percent, fight the influence of money in politics, and create an economy that works for all of us. Our movement is uniting, and this is a chance for all of us to come together to shift the political landscape in America. Will you join in? For more info call the Union Hall, 815842-3289 Summer shutdown Last week the Company told us

they were looking at a possible one week shutdown. They said they would try to let everyone know in the next couple weeks so everyone can make their plans for the Summer. Then in a final step they confirmed that the week of July 16 we will be shutdown for maintenance. They were to meet on going back to eight-hour shifts. They would not share any information on this meeting. April and May membership meetings By membership action the April and May membership meetings have been moved back one week. The April membership meeting was 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.

World powerful elites continue moving to oligarchy order Second of a three part series Last week we wrote about a documentary called “THRIVE” and its creator Foster Gamble, president and co-founder of Clear Compass Media, which brings information for everyone to consider as he did… to the question: Why aren’t we thriving? He proposes that there are individuals in such groups as the secretive Bilderberg group who come together to move the planet toward an oligarchic “New World Order.” Politico journalist Kenneth P. Vogel reports: “It is the exclusive roster of globally influential figures that has captured the interest of an international network of conspiracists, who for decades have seen the Bilderberg meetings as a ‘corporate-globalist scheme,’ and are convinced powerful elites are moving the planet toward an oligarchic ‘New World Order.’ “He goes on to state that these conspiracist's ‘populist paranoid worldview, characterized by a suspicion of the ruling class rather than any prevailing partisan or ideological affiliation, is widely articulated on overnight AM radio shows and numerous Internet websites. Proponents of Bilderberg conspiracy theories in the U.S. include individuals and groups such as the John Birch Society, political activist Phyllis Schlafy, writer Jim Tucker, political activist Lyndon LaRouche, radio host Alex Jones, and politician Jesse Ventura, who made the Bilderberg group a topic of a 2009 episode of his TruTV series Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura. NonAmerican proponents include Russian-Canadian writer Daniel Estulin,” Vogel reports. “All American members of the Steering Committee are members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) similar to its counterpart the Trilateral Commission, the Council of Foreign Relations is composed of Wall Street types, international bankers, executives of powerful foundations, members of various think-tanks and other tax exempt

foundations. “There are ambassadors, past and present presidents of the U.S., and secretaries of state. Other members include lobbyists, media conglomerate owners as well as university presidents and professors. Even federal and Supreme Court judges and members of the military from both NATO and the Pentagon. “The identity of the establishment is vague. It can be defined by secret governments such as the Council on Foreign Relations. “There are approximately 120 invitees to the Bilderberg meetings, about two-thirds European and the rest are North American. Approximately one-third comes from the government and political sector while the remaining two-thirds represent finance, industry, labor, education, and the media. The meetings are sealed off from the public and the press, with the exception of a brief press conference at the conclusion of each meeting on the general topics covered. Resorts and hotels where the meetings are held are cleared of residents and visitors and surrounded by soldiers, armed guards, secret service, state and local police. Conference areas are scanned for bugging devices prior to every meeting. “Bilderberg, named after the Dutch hotel where members first met in 1954, brings together some of the most influential figures on Earth. More than 120 top-level officials in government, banking, media, finance, business, think-tanks, armed forces, and even European royalty attend the confab every

Beef and Broccoli Ingredients 1/3 cup oyster sauce 2 teaspoons Asian (toasted) sesame oil 1/3 cup sherry 1 teaspoon soy sauce 1 teaspoon white sugar 1 teaspoon cornstarch 3/4 pound beef round steak, cut into 1/8inch thick strips 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (more if needed) 1 thin slice of fresh ginger root 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed 1 pound broccoli, cut into florets

Directions 1. Whisk together the oyster sauce, sesame oil, sherry, soy sauce, sugar, and cornstarch in a bowl, and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Place the steak pieces into a shallow bowl, pour the oyster sauce mixture over the meat, stir to coat well, and marinate for at least 30 minutes in refrigerator.

2. Heat vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat, and stir in the ginger and garlic. Let them sizzle in the hot oil for about 1 minute to flavor the oil, then remove and discard. Stir in the broccoli, and toss and stir in the hot oil until bright green and almost tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the broccoli from the wok, and set aside. 3. Pour a little more oil into the wok, if needed, and stir and toss the beef with the marinade until the sauce forms a glaze on the beef, and the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Return the cooked broccoli to the wok, and stir until the meat and broccoli are heated through, about 3 minutes. Yield: 4 servings

year, and general rule is: ‘What's said at a Bilderberg conference stays at a Bilderberg conference.’” Several high-profile journalists have been invited over the years, with the understanding not to report on the proceedings. "Break the rule and you're not invited back." Skeptics argue that members can spend their private time hatching plans to control world politics and economics, ensuring the wealthy and powerful maintain their powerful grip on an enslaved population that keeps the machinery running. Gamble wrote, “Some have argued that Bilderbergers have withheld cancer cures so as not to anger the global pharmaceutical industry. It is worth noting that the Rockefeller empire, in tandem with Chase Manhattan Bank, now JP Morgan Chase, owns more than half of the pharmaceutical interests in the U.S.. It is the largest drug manufacturing combine in the world. The Rockefeller Foundation has kept technology out of the public domain that would allow cars to travel 75 kilometres on a litre of gas in the interest of Big Oil.” James Tucker, an American libertarian and journalist, has been a critic of the Bilderberg group for decades. A few days before the 2006 meeting, he wrote: "When meeting last year in Rottach-Egern, Germany, Bilderberg called for dramatic increases in the price of oil. Oil prices started climbing immediately from $40. a barrel to $70.." According to Tucker: “The group uses its influence to organize wars to overthrow unfriendly leaders. The Bilderbergers have been accused of backing campaigns of politicians friendly to big business interests. Former U.S. president Bill Clinton spoke at a Bilderberg conference a year before his election victory, as did British prime minister Tony Blair. According to the current chairman, Belgian politician and businessman Etienne Davignon, the steering committee that organizes the annual meetings is excellent at spotting talent. Former prime ministers Paul Martin, Jean Chretien and Pierre Trudeau, all attended Bilderberg conferences. Prime minister Stephen Harper attended the 2003 Bilderberg conference in Versailles, France, while he was opposition leader. However, the Bilderbergers were not pleased with Harper because of the Kyoto Protocol, which they were backing. The group pushed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the World Trade Ageement (WTA).” Tucker said: “They turned NATO into the UN's standing army. It's a step on the road to creating world government.” George H.W. Bush attended as vice president of the U.S. and his son, George W. never attended, but had various messengers attend Bilderberg meetings.

Aurora Public Library building proposal passed By Larry Frieders and Jason Crane The Aurora City Council met for more than two hours Tuesday night with the main focus the future of the Aurora Public Library building plans. There was a large crowd and

speakers with opinions on whether the Aurora City Council should pass an ordinance for bonds to bring in money for the proposed building in downtown Aurora. The Aurora Public Library purchased the land on River Street and

Benton Street and had the former building used by The Beacon-News torn down. Well more than half of the speakers, with three minutes to state their cases, were in favor of an ordinance to direct advertisement and sale of $30 Million aggregate principal amount of general obligation library bonds, series 2012 of the City of Aurora. The city covers portions of four counties, Kane, DuPage, Kendall, and Will. The aldermen voted 8-3 in favor of

room for newer books. Several young high-school age children spoke in favor of the new building. Those who understood the need for additional taxes said that new taxes would be minimal. The three aldermen voting against the ordinance to find financing were Stephanie Kifowit, Rick Lawrence, and Allan Lewandowski. Lawrence was the most outspoken of the three who voted against the proposed ordinance. He cited the like-

Three of the 24 speakers at the Aurora City Council meeting Tuesday spoke in favor of approving a new Aurora Public Library building. From left, Bob Cotner, John Diederich, and Shirley Flaherty.

Concrete library plans necessary that uses technology that is but a dream. I think Aurora can build a very nice library that is efficient, easy to use, and has room for expansion and change when and if it becomes necessary. Finally, it looks as though our mayor, Thomas Weisner, is suggesting that the Old Waubonsee College building be converted from an unusable school to a fresh usable school as a technology center? Doesn’t it appear that he has opened the door to more spending that would actually set up a facility to compete with the library for the same services that were

The majority of those talking in favor of the library building spoke of the future and the reason to think of children who will need more space than the building on Benton Street offers. Several of the speakers said books are being taken out to make

ly need for a new building, but, not in such haste and with better direction and understanding of what the library needs will be in the future. He cited the need for better plans prior to acquiring the money. Some of those in favor of the new See page 10

presented in their current vision? That possibility should frighten the library board and the taxpayers. Sadly, the train has already left the station - the one for the dreamy technology vision. It only could have been halted by a City Council that sees the problems associated with the current debacle and decides to vote against the recommendations of their Finance Committee. What were the chances that would happen, especially because as so many already have committed their yes votes? The Aurora City Council April 10 voted

on the ordinance and it passed with eight yes votes. The no votes came from aldermen Stephanie Kifowit, Rick Lawrence, and Allan Lewandowski. Alderman Rick Mervine abstained because of potential conflict. The focus must be on holding the builders to their promised spending limit, $30 Million. I applaud their resolve to stay in that budget. Past projects demonstrate that we probably will go significantly higher, or we will fall far short on the goals to build. Library Board member John Savage predicts, “a transformational library system,” second to none.

Kelley Gruca first Aurora 911 award winner; honored in APD ceremony By Jason Crane Most individuals don’t usually think about emergency services until they are needed. When that happens, nothing else matters. The City of Aurora and Aurora Police Department honored a 20-year veteran emergency telecommunications operator at Aurora Police headquarters Monday. Kelley Gruca, the first-ever recipient of the City of Aurora’s Telecommunications Operator of the Year has spent the last two decades on the other end of the line getting help for those in need. Gruca expressed a feeling of being overwhelmed by the recognition. “I’m overwhelmed by all of this. I’m overwhelmed by everybody here. Thank you for taking the time. This is really important and very special for everybody in my room. “I was really humbled to discover that I had been nominated and shocked when I discovered I had been chosen. “What we do upstairs involves so much as a team effort. A bunch of team players, that’s how we do it,” Gruca said. “My goal every day when I come to work is to help as many people as I can and make sure everybody on the street goes home. Gruca was chosen by her co-work-

ers for the award that coincides with National Telecommunicator Week which is sponsored by the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials International (APCO). The week celebrates and honors the thousands of men and women who respond to emergency calls, dispatch emergency professionals and equipment, and render life-saving assistance to the citizens of the United States. There were two awards, one from the City of Aurora for telecommunications operator of the year and another from the Aurora Police Department, Aurora Police Department telecommunicator of the year 2011. Gruca, who started her career as an Aurora 911 operator October 7, 1991 received words of appreciation and praise from Aurora Police Chief Gregory Thomas: “There’s a lot about telecommunications and being on the recipient end of a number of calls. Being involved in pursuits. Being involved in shootings. Chases, all different kinds of things. “Being that lifeline on the other end is tremendous and cannot be overstated. “The dispatchers in 2010 answered over 101,000 911 calls. Last year it was just over 100,000 calls. Answered over 150,000 non-emergency calls last year and just over 178,000

When the officer gets on the scene to get additional equipment there whether

it’s fire equipment, EMS, tow trucks, wanted checks, warrant checks, it’s phenomenal. “If you ever watch one of the individuals working in telecommunications, they are so fast they literally are ahead a number of computer screens as they are typing to get that information out. It’s truly a wonder to see.” said Thomas.

YARN Foundation start strong By Jason Crane The YARN (Young and restore nations) Foundation fundraiser held the evening of March 31 at the Oswego YMCA proved to be a good start for a great cause. The event with more than 350 individuals in attendance raised more than $14,000 and has provided a cornerstone in the foundation of the YARN Foundation. Founders John Anthony and his wife Deborah, along with a growing number of supporters, hope to have a grand opening for the community center in June. The space is at 71 Boulder Hill Pass where years ago the Boulder Hill Market once was a thriving business. The Anthonys were happy with the fact that the property owner is willing to let them utilize the land next to the strip mall by creating a soccer

field and basketball court. John Anthony expressed that for more than 15 years he was hoping to make this dream a reality. Anthony gave thanks to the long list of supporters who included Illinois representative Kay Hatcher. Even though Anthony had a speech prepared, he decided to speak from the heart, telling his life’s story growing up in a broken home in the projects where he dealt with everything from not knowing his father to homelessness. Anthony said, “I’m here because someone reached out and said, ‘you matter, your life matters’. That’s what YARN means, young and restore nations.” “We are excited that the community came out to support YARN in such great numbers. June is still the soft opening day for YARN.”

building and for passing the ordinance spoke out against the design of the proposed building. Alderman Lynda Elmore said she initially had planned to vote against the proposal but decided to vote in favor, but, said she would keep careful watch on some of the proposed changes that had found agreement

from the Library Board. Some of the comments against the new building were that with new technology, less space would be required. The presumption was that fewer books would be required in the future. When the announcement of the passage of the ordinance, a healthy cheer and clapping greeted the news.

West Aurora Hall of Honor recognition April 14 The West Aurora High School Distinguished Alumni Hall of Honor will recognize six graduates, at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 14 at the Aurora Country Club, who have gained recognition for outstanding accomplishments in their fields of endeavor. To be honored: Walter Bothe, Class of 1959 achieved national recognition as a security professional, and was most eloquently memorialized for his achievements by Dr. Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller and news anchor Ted Koppel at his death in 1987.

He traveled the world providing personnel protection for the Rockefeller family and for Dr. Kissinger. Bothe began his career as a special agent for the United States Secret Service and conducted many high profile investigations as a member of the elite Federal Organized Crime Strike Force. He provided personnel protection to Kissinger dur-

ing Kissinger’s many shuttle diplomacy trips. William C. Gifford, Class of 1959 has been a lawyer, author, and teacher of great distinction.

Best ladder in the U.S. American-made Little Giant By Roger Simmermaker Every now and then I come across an Americanmade product that I simply have to tell everyone about because it’s such a great buy and really should be in every American home. The Little Giant ladder is that product. A few months ago, it became obvious that I needed a new ladder, because my old wooden stepladder just wasn’t safe to use anymore. So I went to some local hardware and home-improvement stores in my area and started looking for a replacement. The ladder I wanted to buy had to be American-made, of course, and I certainly wanted a high-quality one that wouldn’t wear out so easily like the last my ladder. By buying a Little Giant ladder, I got everything I wanted and more. First, all Little Giant ladders are made in USA, so I didn’t have to worry about which model I was buying. Second, I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t last forever, as long as it’s well-cared for. And third, it’s actually 24 ladders in one! You can buy a Little Giant ladder just like mine for less than $200 with free shipping and no sales tax! That’s a great price when you consider it likely will be the last ladder you will ever buy. I remember going to the same hardware and home improvement stores I went to back in 2004 when I was buying various supplies after the four Florida hurricanes that year. Back then, Louisville ladders had gone to Mexico and Werner ladder were still made in USA. Unfortunately, Werner ladders are no longer made in America today. Luckily Little Giant ladders are, and what’s better is you can use them in so many ways, so it’s better than buying any one ladder anyway.

Little Giant Type 1 Alta-One ladders (the kind I bought) feature heavy-wall aircraft-grade aluminum construction, are rated to hold up to 250 pounds, combines 24 ladders into one convenient system, comply with all OSHA and ANSI A14.2 standards, and include a limited lifetime warranty. Little Giant ladders are portable and easy to store, so they’ll take up a lot less space than any other ladder you’ve owned in the past or could own in the future. They are so versatile; they can be used in a number of ways. For example, Little Giant ladders can be used as an A-frame ladder, a staircase ladder, a 90 degree ladder, an extension ladder, or for scaffolding. That’s why it simply doesn’t make sense to buy any other ladder. The Little Giant website can help you decide which ladder you need online and offers a comparison chart complete with instructional, infomercial, and demonstration videos. And you’ll never have to worry about your safety when using the Little Giant ladder. It is simply the safest and sturdiest ladder I have ever used, and I’m certain it will stay that way for years to come as long as I continue to take care of it like any other proudly American-made product. You easily can spend more than a $100 for a simple stepladder, and that’s all you get. One ladder, one application, and most likely imported. With Little Giant, you get a great, high-quality, sturdy, long-lasting, American-made ladder with all kinds of optional accessories. In addition to the free work platform you’ll get with your order, you can order a ladder rack, project tray, cargo hold, wing span, airdeck, or leg leveler. Are you wondering what all these other acces-

From baby library card to teen team competition For those of you who somehow missed it, I am a grandma now, and am watching as my grandson Maddox discovers all kinds of new things. Even though he is only eight months-old, he already is well-acquainted with books. Grammy made sure that he had a good stash of them even before he was born. About a month ago I was reading him his book, “PeekaBoo Sleepy Baby,” that I picked up somewhere for a few bucks. It’s a cardboard book with flaps that show a different baby under each one. I was amazed that he sat still and listened while I read, anticipated the lifting of the flap and the revealing of the baby. Then he touched the baby’s face! Sounds mundane, I know, but miraculous to this first-time grandma. When the Aurora Public Library changed its policy April 1 to allow even newborn babies to sign up for a library card, I immediately thought of Maddox, and whether he would be able to get a library card in his little town in Iowa. I was told that yes, babies can get cards there. So I have a call to make to my daughter! Aurora Public Library Children’s Services coordinator Diane Christian said the new policy will help encourage early literacy and emphasize the importance of reading aloud to even the youngest of children. New parents should look for the library’s Summer reading program that includes activities for even the youngest children. The scoop on getting library cards for our littlest library patrons is on our website at www.aurorapubliclibrary.org/library-cards/#howtoapply. I will skip from babies to teens and tell of an amazing thing I witnessed Saturday, March 31. I know, how lucky I am to witness so many amazing things! The teen librarians at the Main Library, West Branch, and Eola Road Branch, ran the second annual TAB (Teen Advisory Board) Olympics Saturday, March 31 at the Eola Road Branch. The games pitted teens from all three sections of the city against one another. There were students from East Aurora and West Aurora High Schools, Rosary High School, Waubonsie Valley and Metea

The 12 teens played: •Human Bingo: Ice-breaker where teens had to mingle with others to find traits that matched those on their bingo cards. • Separation Anxiety: A race to see who could separate Skittles candy the quickest. • Dewey Decimation: Place books in order using Dewey Decimal System. • Lava Floor: Get from one side of the room to another by using two pieces of cardboard. • Book Relay: Travel across the room with a

book balanced on the head. • What's that Word?: Known as Balderdash. • Balloon Sandwich Relay: Pairs traveled across the room with a balloon sandwiched between them. • Rapid Fire: Shoot rubber bands at pyramids made of aluminum pop cans. West Branch walked away with the victory, although Eola Road Branch was leading going into the last challenge and agreed to a winner-take-all proposition for the last game. So the amazing thing was that these three groups of four teens each did not know each other before the games started, but they weren’t shy about getting to know each other during the course of the afternoon. And they were polite and gracious and a real joy to be around. Although West will keep the TAB Olympics trophy at its location for the year, the teens all were winners in my book. Teens who are interested in getting to know others who are into reading and having fun can attend the Main Teen Advisory Board’s “Aliens Among Us” program from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 26 at the Main Library. The program, entirely devised by the TAB from Main, will discuss whether there really are aliens on earth. Go to: tinyurl.com/7j4uys3 to sign up.

Season pass at two water parks: One cool Summer Just like most everybody else, I figured Summer had arrived in March when we experienced a record-breaking nine straight days with 80-degree temperatures. But the pools never opened, and the heat wave subsided. So now it’s back to waiting for Summer’s official arrival in June. If the last streak of high temperatures is any indication, it’s going to be one hot Summer. That’s why this double-dandy season pass to two water parks is so exciting. Through the end of April, the Fox Valley Park District is offering dirtcheap season passes that can be used at both of its water parks, Phillips Park Family Aquatic Center

and Splash Country Water Park. Preseason prices range from $35 to $65 depending on age and residency, but regardless of which pass you choose, it’s a blue-water bargain, with added benefits. As a pass holder, you get to enjoy the water park for one additional hour each Friday

from 11 a.m. to noon before it opens to the public, the equivalent of a private party for pass holders. Speaking of parties, a season pass provides a 10% discount off of water park birthday parties and a complimentary friend pass if purchased before May 1. One pass for one low price opens the door to two water parks for 10 weeks this Summer, every day! Simple math computes to a great discount. A standard season pass for residents 13 and over costs $55, if purchased before May 1. A daily weekday pass is $8. So if you plan to enjoy more than seven visits this Summer, it’s the equivalent of free admission from the eighth day forward. Phillips Park has four slides, two of the winding flume variety. The other two are drop slides that provide the sensation of going over the edge of a cliff on a waterfall, albeit with a safe landing pool below. Splash Country has two twisting flume slides as well and its famous lazy river, the second longest of its type in Illinois, that winds through dumping buckets, sprayers, water jets and bubbling rapids. Both parks include kid-friendly sections with spray guns, waterfalls, and sand areas, with beach volleyball courts for teens and adults. Each weekday at both water parks will have a theme and include activities such as cannonball contests, sand castle building and relay races. Special event weekends are on tap as well, including Splash Bash June 9 and Phillips Fest June 16. Family fun is priceless, and keeping it affordable assures that it stays that way. The season for wet and wild fun will begin June 2, but your Summer could start early with a season pass in your pocket. Jeff Long is the public relations manager for the Fox Valley Park District. Contact him at jlong@ fvpd.net. A season pass is good at Phillips Park Family Aquatic Center, above, and Splash Country Water Park every day, all Summer long, both in Aurora.

Kane Board of Health adopts CHIP Kane, Kendall lead in state health

The Kane County Board of Health last week adopted the Kane County 2012-2016 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), a comprehensive set of policy and program recommendations. It identifies areas where we can have the largest impact on improving the quality of life for all Kane residents, particularly the most vulnerable residents of our community, by reducing preventable sickness and death. Two versions of the plan (one with and one without appendices), a comprehensive data book and an executive summary are available for viewing at www.kanehealth.com/chip.htm. “There are many factors that affect our health and have a tremendous influence on health outcomes,” said Kane County Health Department executive director Paul Kuehnert. “The physical environment, social and economic factors, and clinical care all play a role in an individual’s health and are all incorporated into the plan.” The CHIP was developed based on the results of the Community Health Assessment. Throughout 2011, the

health department, in partnership with the five hospitals in the county, the Fox Valley United Way, the United Way of Elgin, and the INC Board, jointly funded and led the collection of social, economic, health and other data to better understand the health of our community. For the first time, more than 1,500 adults were surveyed about their health. The survey asked 420 adults about the health of a child in their home. The assessment included a number of public meetings and focus groups to gather input directly from residents. All of the data and information collected through the assessment is included in the plan. The CHIP aligns with the County’s update to the 2040 Plan which recognizes and emphasizes the connection between the most important resource in Kane County, its residents, with the opportunities and barriers for healthy living created by the built and natural environment, and how together they shape the overall health of communities. —Kane County Health Department

The Third Annual County Health Rankings released Tuesday once again show that Kane County residents are some of the healthiest in Illinois. Overall, Kane ranked eighth in the state, moving up from ninth in 2011 and 11th in 2010. The rankings show Kane with a health outcomes rank of 8, and a health factor ranking of 30, both improvements from last year. Kendall County was ranked first and DuPage third among 102 counties. “Even though we ranked among the best in the state, the rankings reveal areas where we can improve. This report really reinforces what we have learned over the past year in our community health assessment that we conducted with the hospitals, United Ways and the INC Board. It helps us identify those areas where we still need to do more to shape our environment to support healthy choices,” Kane County Health Department executive director Paul Kuehnert said. —Kane County Health Department

Here are the top 25 of the 102 counties in Illinois in health ranking by county: 1 Kendall 2 Woodford 3 DuPage 4 Mercer 5 McHenry 6 McDonough 7 Douglas 8 Kane 9 Lake 10 Jo Daviess 11 Ford 12 Henry 13 Monroe 14 Ogle 15 Washington 16 Will 17 Clinton 18 McLean 19 Menard 20 Piatt 21 Grundy 22 Stephenson 23 DeKalb 24 Clay 25 Bureau

Girls softball team in Minooka sets sights on May surge By Bobby Narang Minooka High School girls softball coach Mark Brown has plenty of reason for optimism that his team will embark on a late-season surge. The Indians opened the season highly-ranked in both Chicago daily newspapers preseason polls, but entered the second week of April supporting an 8-3 record after losses to Naperville North, Lockport, and Joliet Catholic. “Getting those rankings, we love them because

we’ve done some good stuff in the past,” Brown said. “We won 28 games last year. But we have a bulls-eye on our back. We don’t realize every single team plays us like it’s a regional game.” The Indians, a team built on sophomores and juniors, opened the season with a frustrating loss to Naperville North. Minooka suffered a tough 2-0 eight-inning defeat to Lockport Wednesday of last week, when the Porters’ Carly Dundee belted a two-run walk-off home run.

The Indians committed 14 errors in their three losses, evidenced by allowing three unearned runs to Naperville North in the opener. “We’ve been beating ourselves,” Brown said. “We’ve been throwing the ball around. This group is trying to find their identity. The first couple of weeks we’re stumbling defensively and our bats are hit or miss. We score 12 runs one game and See page 20

By Woodrow Carroll To some, it is hard to believe the Kane County Cougars are in their 22nd season of operation as a Class A minor league baseball team. There were plenty of misgivings when the Geneva-based operation first played in the Midwest League in 1991. There will not be support of an operation in the White Sox and Cubs backyard, was the recurring theme at the time. As it turned out, the Cougars’ poorest attendance figure was the start-up season of 1991. The product caught on quickly and today Kane County is looked upon as a minor league success story. Midwest League action this season got under way Thursday of last week with the Cougars opening on the road in Davenport, Iowa. It See page 21

Sox, Cubs could exceed low expectations with a little pitching By Carter Crane The sports buzz surfaces with a variety of tales which make competition interesting. • The low expectations for both the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox may play in their favor this season. No fan of the Chicago teams will expect a repeat of the 2003 Cubs when they were five outs from playing in the World Series, or, the 2005 White Sox when they not only made it to the World Series, they made it look easy with four straight victories in four games. Nonetheless, hope springs eternal. The White Sox pitching could be a little better than forecasters think. Pitching is the most important part of the game. If the Cubs develop pitching they could be competitive. With free agency and latent development, teams go from top to bottom and right back to the top. The Sox and Cubs could hold our interest longer than predictions indicate. • The Illinois men’s basketball coaching situation continues to gain a foothold in our interest. Now the departed Bruce Weber, after nine years at Illinois, takes a job at Kansas State, a Big XXII team. Too many of the Illinois fans were too quick Home Team shaded

court antics and controversy in sports wear a little thin. It is better to focus on Mark Buehrle and Carlos Zambrano, rather than what Ozzie Guillen said about Fidel Castro. • The best advice is to keep it relevant to the game. We would rather think about what Matt Forte might do to improve the Bears in 2012 rather than about his contract situation and whether the Bears will pay him more money. Let it sit on the financial pages. • The focus should be on Derek Rose and the Chicago Bulls and whether they can win the Eastern Conference championship this year, and, not on whether Rose will continue to receive big money from a shoe company. Rose has to focus on finishing games and making clutch baskets. • The Chicago Blackhawks will begin a trek in the first round of the playoffs, which two seasons back, took them to the Stanley Cup championship. The Blackhawks, just like the Bulls, must get healthy and find some magic to compete for the Stanley Cup. It is all about being healthy and getting hot at the right time. Equity is with us in the Winter sports. Playing well, playing together, and having a little luck go a long way.

Newman’s Own MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Martinsville Speedway races tend to be won by acknowledged masters of NASCAR’s shortest track, but it wasn’t too much of a surprise that the latest to visit the .526-mile track’s victory lane for the first time was Ryan Newman. In his career, Newman, from South Bend, Ind., has won at the Sprint Cup level 16 times. Those 16 victories have occurred at 11 different tracks. “I think there are 42 other drivers who say this place owes them one,” Newman said after winning the Goody’s Fast Relief 500. “That’s the nature of this paper-clip race track.” The sharp curves at each end of NASCAR’s oldest track set Martinsville apart. The race was already in overtime when the top three cars — driven by Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Clint Bowyer — crashed in the first turn of the 505th lap. Newman managed to avoid the melee and held off A.J. Allmendinger to win a

race that eventually ran 15 laps past its scheduled distance. Newman, 34, joked when asked about the diverse nature of his victories. “I just try to spread them out,” he quipped. “I could win a bunch of races, but for me it’s more important to just kind of spread it out and let other guys win once in a while.

eight-hour day Thursday, April 5 selling tickets in front of the Jewel Food Store in Batavia. Among these buying raffles and tickets to the games included Joan Havel of Elburn and Johnny

since September 2011 in New Hampshire. That was his 49th career pole. He qualified fifth at Martinsville. “We were not a dominant race car,” Newman said, “but we put ourselves in contention and pulled it off.” Newman’s victory occurred exactly 19 years after Alan Kulwicki, the 1992 Winston Cup champion, perished in a plane

“I remember this day 19 years ago when I was in high school,” Newman said. “He was an inspiration for me. He was part of the reason why I chose to (study engineering) and follow through with my racing career at the same time.” Newman earned his degree, in vehicle structural engineering, from Purdue University.

The Fox Valley Marines will be in front of the Jewel in Oswego April 14 and 15 selling raffles and admission tickets. The tournament has expanded to 12 teams from eight teams. The games will begin at 10 a.m. each of the two weekend days at the Vaughan Athletic Center in Aurora. The Vaughan Center is at 2121 W. Indian Trail. The Aurora Police Department is the defending champion. The four new teams will be Aurora AMVETS, U.S. Army Recruiters, Team Home Depot, and the 2nd Battalion 24th Regiment U.S. Marines. The eight teams returning from last year are Aurora Police Department, Aurora Fire Department, DuPage County Sheriff’s Department, Kane County Sheriff’s Department, Kendall County Sheriff’s Department, Montgomery Police Department, Naperville Police Department, and Oswego Police Department. The family admission price is $12. for each day; individual tickets are $6. each; seniors and students will pay $4. each and active military members will be allowed in for no charge.

We’ll be a good team in May.” The Indians have gotten solid production from the bottom of their order to mask slow starts from Sara Novak, Rachel May, or Makayla Malone, Minooka’s No. 2, No. 3, and No. 5 hitters, respectively. Lindsey Fenner’s production is somewhat down compared to her past seasons. “Lindsey is the nucleus of the team; we’ll go as far as she takes us,” Brown said. “Her bats slowed down little bit. Her home run and RBIs are down. Our biggest run producers are not doing so well. They’ll turn it around.” Novak, who made a commitment to the University of Wisconsin, was 4-1 on the season after suffering a hard-luck loss to Lockport. Novak struck out 47 batters in her last four games, including 15 strikeouts in a victory over Bolingbrook. Catcher Kelsey Smith has been a nice surprise for the Indians this year. The junior has allowed a stolen base this year, according to Brown. “Kelsey will play in college somewhere,” Brown said. “She just has to get more experience. She calls a great game and we would be lost without her.”

proved to be a successful start with Kane County taking the opener and closer of a three-game series from the host Quad Cities River Bandits in a Western Division game. Playing another Western Division foe, the Beloit Snappers, in their home opener of a threegame series Monday, the Cougars failed to hold on to a 4-2 advantage after six innings and ended up losing, 9-7. After the brief three-game homestand with Beloit, the Cougars will take to the road for seven games, four in Burlington and three in Beloit, and will be back home April 19. The Cougars will play Ft. Wayne and Lake County (Ohio) in a three-game set with each at home. The Cougars scored three runs in the home opener in the sixth inning to take the lead. All three runs scored with two outs. Catcher JinHo Shin’s double drove in one run and he scored on a double by Alex Llanos. Danny Mateo’s hit drove in Llanos. Brooks Pounders, the Cougars’ starting pitcher lasted 32/3 innings. He was in his first start for the Kansas City organization. The Cougars bounced back Tuesday with an 8-3 victory over Beloit for a 3-2 start of the 2012 season. The Cougars are a Class A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, an affiliation now in its second year. Prior to Kansas City, the Cougars had working agreements with the Baltimore Orioles, Florida (Miami) Marlins, and Oakland Athletics.

Flying With Your Pet DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I have to take a trip across the country in about a month, and I hate the thought of leaving my dog “Snoops” alone, even with a house sitter stopping by. I don’t want to put him into a cargo crate and ship him to where I’m going. Can I sneak my dog on board the airplane instead? — Sign me “Shhhh” in Little Rock, Ark. DEAR SHHHH: Why sneak your dog aboard? Some airlines allow very small dogs — those that can fit into a handheld carrier that fits beneath the airline seat in front of you — to fly with their owner. Check with your airline about this option, any additional fees, rules and restrictions well before your flight. Under no circumstances should you try to sneak your dog into the passenger cabin. You will be found out, and the complications of your trip will multiply exponentially. Flying your pet, or with your pet, is a common activity and a common worry for pet owners. Some pet

Q: websites list airlines with pet travel policies, such as dogfriendly.com, which recently updated its list. Most interesting is the newly launched airline, Pet Airways (http://www.petairways.com/), which doesn’t fly people at all — just pets (with a human attendant on board to monitor and care for them). No matter how you decide to get Snoops across the country, follow a few important steps when transporting him. Make sure his carrier is sturdy and comfortable and includes his favorite toys and blanket. Don’t feed him less than five hours before his flight. Give him water two hours before the flight. If you aren’t confident in the airline’s ability to transport him, consider leaving him with a sitter or at a pet hotel until you return.

I have an old metal iron squeezer identified as being “The Arcade No. 2.” — Cathy, Amarillo, Texas The Arcade Manufacturing Company of Freeport, Ill., made lemon squeezers during the early years of the past century. The No. 2 is valued at about $15. A good reference is “300 Years of Kitchen Collectibles” by Linda Campbell Franklin (Krause, $29.95). *** I have a bracelet that is identified as being “Big Sister’s Birthday Bracelet,” probably from the 1940s.

The series featured Alice Frost in the title role. The storyline was set in the fictional town of Glen Falls and revolved around Ruth Evans and the sacrifices she made for her younger sister, Sue, and crippled brother, Neddie.

Disability Benefits Claims Now Online Going paperless is an important part of the Department of Veterans Affairs “people-focused process and technology-centered improvements” and is supposed to streamline the claims steps and get rid of the backlog. To that end, the VA has made it easier to file a claim online by providing 70 different Disability Benefits Questionnaires covering all types of conditions. Whether it’s cardiovascular, dermatological, endocrinological, gastrointestinal, neurological or something else, there’s a form for it. Additionally, if you don’t have a diagnosis yet, there’s a section for symptoms that will tell you which form applies to you. You can download it electronically for your doctor, or print out a copy to take in for your doctor to complete. Ideally your doctor will complete the digital questionnaire and submit it electronically. The instructions ask that your doctor file the form electronically in case of bad handwriting. Be sure to keep a copy for

your records. To find the forms, go online to http://benefits. va.gov/transformation/ and scroll down the right side to Key Transformation Plan Initiatives. The link to the questionnaires are listed there. Note that there is a link on the right side to a video that helps with filing a claim. Read the FAQ to make sure you know the process. One thing that’s common to all three forms is this statement: “VA will not pay or reimburse any expenses or costs incurred in the process of completing and/or submitting a DBQ.” As usual, the devil is in the details. In the instruction section for doctors it says that the time to complete each form “varies from 15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the complexity of the form and the conditions covered.” Is your private doctor going to be willing to do that?

NIJwJ focus: Unemployment, contract By Dustin Krueger The Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice (NIJwJ) gathered outside the North Island Center Office last Friday in downtown Aurora to read a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Mary Shesgreen of NIJwJ said, “In April, and the March BLS report for March, released this morning, appears, unfortunately, to justify our skepticism. Some economists were predicting employment growth of 210,000. But the BLS shows weaker payroll employment growth of 120,000 in March, and the same gloomy picture behind the top line number.” Following her speech, Jose Zamarripa, Jr. of Laborers’ Local 681 spoke on the ATMI union negotiations with the workers who recently voted overwhemingly to join Local 681. “As far as the progress there is a scheduled meeting next Friday (April 13)...where we start negotiations with

Montgomery manager resigns On April 9, 2012, Anne Marie Gaura resigned as Village manager for the Village of Montgomery. After 12 years, Ms. Gaura has decided to pursue other career opportunities. Anne Marie Gaura has served as the Village manager since 2000, providing professional leadership through a time of unprecedented growth, including a 237% population increase. Among her accomplishments in Montgomery, she managed the financing, design and construction of multiple public facilities to serve the growing Village, including the a state of the art Police Department facility, an award winning Village Hall, a water treatment plant, two wells and two water towers. Village president Marilyn Michelini stated, “It’s been a pleasure working with Anne Marie over the past 12 years. Under her guidance, we have not only accomplished significant projects, but have also maintained a balanced budget during the recent economic downturn. Anne Marie brought to the Village Manager’s position a high level of professionalism, enthusiasm and energy and she has been an invaluable asset to the Village. Her professional leadership has positioned the Village well for future growth.” Anne Marie Gaura said, “It has been a tremendous privilege and honor to work for the Village these past 12 years through the explosive growth. I will always be proud of all of our accomplishments, including several very significant capital projects and long range planning that has laid the foundation for the future. I am also extremely proud of the professional staff here and for all that we have been able to achieve together.” —Village of Montgomery

the company. Local 681 has a proposal ready for us and we will present it at that time.” Others showing support at the rally were: Lillian Perry, spokesperson for State representative Linda Chapa LaVia; Dolores Hicks, Aurora Township trustee; Bill Catching (who could not attend), Aurora Township trustee; and Dusty McCance of United Auto Workers (UAW) Local 145. “The unemployment rate for men has decreased by 20% over that period, while the rate for women has been sticky, moving only from 8.3% to 8.1%,” Shesgreen said. “Another concern is temporary employment patterns. Twenty percent of the total employment growth reported in February and half of the growth in the category of professional and business services were in temporary positions.” The group has tentative plans to meet again Friday, May 4 to review the BLS unemployment numbers.

500 volunteers from Kohl’s ready to help at Mooseheart It is hard to tell which organization is more excited about the forthcoming Saturday, April 14 cleanup and beautification day at Mooseheart Child City and School, Kohl’s, which is providing nearly 500 volunteers to do the work, or Mooseheart, which is going to benefit from the Saturday of donated time by those good-hearted souls from 8 a.m. to noon. Stephanie Krauss, store manager of the Kohl’s store in St. Charles, who said, “It’s awesome. Whenever I go to Mooseheart, I feel so good. I get so excited to help.” Then there is Mooseheart superintendent of Education Gary Urwiler, who brings the same hurricane-like enthusiasm to every such effort on the 1,000-acre campus. Kohl’s employees, all volunteers, will be painting fences, mulching, planting shrubs

and trees and doing other activities to help make a 99-year-old campus, which always glistens in the Spring, look just a little more beautiful. There will be work done on the horse corral at the farm complex and some improvement work will be done at each of the campus residence homes. “This is about creating enthusiasm for us to be able to give information about our mission,” Urwiler said. “It’s about the compelling nature of people who want to get out and to provide a service with what they are doing.” This is the third year Kohl’s employees have come to Mooseheart to help with a green event. In that time, the event has grown from just the St. Charles store to this year, where 50 stores from across Illinois and northwest Indiana are attending. “When we go to Mooseheart, not

only do we get to work on the campus, we get to work with the kids too,” Strauss said. “It is so impactful to see the kids. You look at what you’re doing, and you know you’re helping with their education. And those kids are so grateful, they smile when you’re there.” The clean-up event carries a deeper financial dimension. Kohl’s financially supports its employees’ efforts to participate in green events to the level that Strauss and her colleagues will present a check for $63,000 to Urwiler and executive director Scott Hart Saturday. “I cry every time I go there,” Krauss said. “So many people don’t know it’s there, but once you find out about this amazing place, you want to go back and help.” Krauss not only helps through her

efforts with Kohl’s, she has taken the extra step of becoming a member of the Moose fraternity, the organization that supports Mooseheart. Krauss is a member of Mooseheart, IL Chapter 3001 in the Women of the Moose. “It’s been a great situation to work with (Krauss’) passion and zeal for what she does at Kohl’s,” Urwiler said. “And she’s definitely bought in as a member and has seen what her membership can do change the lives of the children here. She definitely is an energy.” The $63,000 donation to Moose Charities, Moose International’s 501[c]3 fundraising corporation will go to help with Mooseheart’s efforts to renovate its school building, Hart said. “Every dollar that comes into Mooseheart comes to help us raise and to help us educate the children here,” Hart said. “Every dollar we receive is appreciated. But when you move into the level beyond $50,000, you are talking about money that will have an immediate impact on our operating expenses and the future, and we are looking to use this money to bring our school building into the 21st Century.” Hart said just how the Kohl’s donation can help Mooseheart’s school building is, as yet, uncertain. “The school was built in 1954 and it needs work,” Hart said. “We are strategizing to make that work, but we know that this money will go toward some form of renovation in the school.” Stores involved in the event include Krauss’ St. Charles stores and others from Kohl’s District 12 in include: Spring Hill, Hodgkins, Batavia, Woodridge, Stratford Square, Downers Grove, South Elgin and DeKalb. Involved are stores from District 19 to include: Arlington Heights, Gurnee, Crystal Lake, Round Lake, McHenry, Vernon Hills, Glenview, Lake Zurich, Algonquin, and Woodstock. Among other stores sending volunteers are four from Indiana. “I called (Urwiler) and I told him that I had told him we were talking about 10 stores coming, but now it was 50, and he got right back to me and said he was excited about working with us to make it happen,” Krauss said. Volunteers will gather at 8 a.m. A brief ceremony is scheduled at Mooseheart’s football stadium at 8:45 a.m. with the clean-up/beautification starting at 9 a.m.. Mooseheart is currently home to roughly 230 students, ranging in age from preschoolers to high school seniors. Applications for admission to Mooseheart are considered from any family whose children are, for whatever reason, lacking a stable home environment. Mooseheart boasts its own U.S. Post Office and a fully functioning branch of Fifth Third Bank. —Mooseheart

The after-dinner speaker will be the head of the NJROTC unit at East Aurora High School, Lieutenant Commander Darryl Person. Commander Person first will give a short power point slide presentation of activities of the NJROTC unit, and then show a 20-minute, professionally-produced video entitled "TOMCAT NAVY" which features the East Aurora NJROTC Unit. This unit is a local jewel of the

community and is the most decorated high school NJROTC unit in the nation year after year. Lieutenant Commander Person is a native Chicagoan.

Whitehead Corrections Corp of America (CCA) to protect society. Today, as states attempt to save money by outsourcing prisons to and GEO Group, the leaders in the partnership corprivate corporations, the flawed yet retributive rections industry, it’s a $70 Billion gold mine. Thus, American “system of justice” is being replaced by with an eye toward increasing its bottom line, CCA an even more flawed and insidious form of mass has floated a proposal to prison officials in 48 states offering to buy and manage public prisons at a subpunishment based upon profit and expediency. As author Adam Gopnik reports for the New stantial cost savings to the states. In exchange, and here’s the kicker, the prisons would have to contain Yorker: “[A] growing number of American prisons are at least 1,000 beds and states would have agree to now contracted out as for-profit businesses to for- maintain a 90% occupancy rate in the privately run profit companies. The companies are paid by the prisons for at least 20 years. The problem with this scenario, as Roger Werstate, and their profit depends on spending as little as possible on the prisoners and the prisons. It’s holtz, former Kansas secretary of corrections, rechard to imagine any greater disconnect between ognizes is that while states may be tempted by the public good and private profit: The interest of pri- quick infusion of cash, they “would be obligated to vate prisons lies not in the obvious social good maintain these (occupancy) rates and subtle presof having the minimum necessary number of in- sure would be applied to make sentencing laws mates, but in having as many as possible, housed more severe with a clear intent to drive up the

population.” Unfortunately, that’s exactly what has happened. Among the laws aimed at increasing the prison population and growing the profit margins of special interest corporations such as CCA are three-strike laws (mandating sentences of 25 years to life for multiple felony convictions) and truth-insentencing legislation (mandating that those sentenced to prison serve most or all of their time). “And this is where it gets creepy,” observes reporter Joe Weisenthal for Business Insider, “because as an investor you’re pulling for scenarios where more people are put in jail.” In making its pitch to potential investors, CCA points out that private prisons comprise a unique, recession-resistant investment opportunity, with more than 90% of the market up for grabs, little competition, high recidivism among prisoners, and the potential for “accelerated growth in inmate populations following the recession.” In other words, caging humans for profit is a sure bet, because the U.S. population is growing dramatically and the prison population will grow proportionally as well, and more prisoners equal more profits. However, while a flourishing privatized prison system is a financial windfall for corporate investors, it bodes ill for any measures aimed at reforming prisoners and reducing crime. CCA understands this. As it has warned investors, efforts to decriminalize certain activities, such as drug use (principally possession of marijuana), could cut into their profits. So too would measures aimed at reducing the prison system’s disproportionately racist impact on minorities, given that the incarceration rate for blacks is seven times that of whites. Immigrants are heavily impacted, with roughly 2.5 Million having been through the immigration detention system since 2003. As private prisons begin to dominate, the many troubling characteristics of our so-called criminal justice system today, racism, economic inequality, inadequate access to legal representation, lack of due process, only will become more acute. Doubtless, a system already riddled by corruption inevitably will become more corrupt, as well. For example, consider the kids for cash scandal which rocked Luzerne County, Pa., in 2009. For 10 years, the Mid Atlantic Youth Service Corporation, which specializes in private prisons for juvenile offenders, paid two judges to jail youths and send them to private prison facilities. The judges, who made over $2.6 Million in the scam, had more than 5,000 kids come through their courtrooms and sent many of them to prison for petty crimes such as stealing DVDs from Walmart and trespassing in vacant buildings. When the scheme finally came to light, one judge was sentenced to 17.5 years in prison and the other received 28 years, but not before thousands of young lives had been ruined. No matter what the politicians or corporate heads might say, prison privatization is neither fiscally responsible nor in keeping with principles of justice. It simply encourages incarceration for the sake of profits, while causing millions of Americans, most of them minor, nonviolent criminals, to be handed over to corporations for lengthy prison sentences which do nothing to protect society or prevent recidivism. This perverse notion of how prisons should be run, that they should be full at all times, and full of minor criminals, is evil. —The Rutherford Institute
