Recipe in scrapbook may


blow lid off KFC secret
List tied to wife of
the Colonel adds
spice to mystery
By Jay Jones

Chicago Tribune

CORBIN, Ky. So many


stories have been told
about Colonel Sanders and
his Kentucky Fried Chicken, its impossible to know
where the truth ends and
the fiction begins.
This is one of those
stories. A mix of memory,
mystery and a pinch of
what if? It involves one
of the best-kept culinary
secrets of all time, and the
man whos arguably the
original celebrity chef.
These days, the late Colonel has been resurrected
on TV commercials as a
caricature played by the
likes of George Hamilton

and Jim Gaffigan. But as


many of us remember, the
real Colonel was a bespectacled, white-haired
guy named Harland David
Sanders who spawned a
fast-food empire. For decades, The Colonel was
synonymous with snow-

colored suits, black string


ties and finger lickin
good chicken coated in a
secret blend of 11 herbs and
spices.
Attempts to unearth the
Colonels Original Recipe,
or replicate it, have been
made too many times to
count. For KFC Corp.,
keeping the elusive mix of
11 herbs and spices under
wraps has been paramount
not to mention a great
marketing tool. In 2008,
the Louisville, Ky.-based
company used a Brinks
armored truck and briefcase marked Top Secret
when it made a big show of
beefing up security at the
vault containing the Colonels handwritten recipe.
Other protective measures
include using two different
suppliers to prepare the 11

Standing before the religious icons that line his


Ukrainian
Orthodox
church in Humboldt Park,
the Rev. Nicholas Chervyatiuk has ministered to followers who arrived in Chicago as refugees after surviving Nazi Germanys prison camps.
Now the Cook County
public guardian is accusing
the priest of improperly
taking more than $500,000
from the savings of one of
those displaced persons, a
93-year-old former church
secretary diagnosed with
dementia.
Chervyatiuk has not been
charged with a crime, and
he denied any wrongdoing
during a sworn probate
court examination and in a
Tribune interview.
He says Nelly Bridgeman
wanted him to have her
money, which he saw as
payment for the care he
provided as her health and
mental faculties failed.
Its for my work, Chervyatiuk testified during the
court examination. It was
for 14 years and I think it
was time for me to get paid.
... Nelly wanted it that way.
He told the Tribune he
estimated those services
were worth about $25,000
per year.
Chervyatiuk, 55, allegedly used Bridgemans
money to support two restaurants he ran with a
convicted drug dealer, his
Brash & Sassy Inc. hair
salon and his portfolio of
Chicago-area rental properties, according to probate

Police in Milwaukee prepare for protests Aug. 14 after an officer shot and killed a suspect in the city the day before.

John Kass

Road to urban despair


paved by Democrats
Riots broke out in Milwaukee the
other day, and before that in other
cities, each erupting with familiar
sights: fire and pain, anger and looting.
It will likely happen again in some
other urban area, perhaps after a
black man is killed by a police officer,
whether the shooting is justified or
unjustified. Was the victim a known
criminal pointing a gun at a cop? Or
not? These are reasons, but reasons
really dont matter now, do they?
The fire is the thing. The anger is
the thing.
And all were doing now is waiting
for the next one.
Our media high priests the
guardians of the political establishment come to us with reasoned
explanations for the urban tinderbox.
They tell us of hopelessness and
despair. But ignore the one thing that
binds them all, the one inconvenient
truth of things.
We know that institutions have
broken down. Generations of black
families have been shattered by the
welfare state.
Weve created government systems
that maintain human beings in poverty and ignorance so that politicians
can count on their votes.
And that is a crime against morality.
You know this. There are schools
that dont work and havent for decades, schools where teachers are
overwhelmed, where children arrive
thoroughly unprepared, where too
many parents are indifferent.
Political corruption is an epidemic,
a hidden tax upon urban economic
wastelands, where there are no jobs
for people who arent trained and
educated for work.
During a riot, when businesses
begin to burn and rocks are thrown
and guns are fired, political actors in
those little boxes on TV begin to bark
in cliches.
They use words like empowerment and investment and social
infrastructure and social justice.
Blame is assessed and pressed like
hot iron into the flanks of the rich, or
of corporations, and others with
means, a moronic and frightening
misunderstanding of how jobs are

created. It is as if The Big Rock


Candy Mountain has become economic policy.
And by such logic all we must do is
lower the rich into a giant cauldron,
add salt and bay leaves, and boil them
down for soup to soothe the neighborhoods on fire.
And while were at it, why not find
that magical unlimited federal checkbook and a committee of the best and
the brightest to guide us?
But weve already had government
run by the best and the brightest. And
weve spent trillions of dollars in
Americas war on poverty.
And just what has been accomplished? The crime statistics tell you.
The jobless numbers tell you. The
graduation rates tell you. Open your
eyes and see the despair.
What isnt discussed enough when
riots happen and neighborhoods burn
is the one thing most common to all
these decaying urban tinderboxes.
Theyre run by Democrats.
Baltimore is a Democratic city,
Milwaukee is a Democratic city, Chicago, Detroit, and on and on.
This is a most inconvenient truth.
This is what binds them.
For decade after decade, Democrats have controlled policy and politics in the broken cities. This is the
proof of Democratic success.
The broken schools have been run
by Democrats for decades. The broken institutions are run by Democrats.
The political corruption in these
cities is Democratic corruption,
where government is the hammer
used to beat others into forking over
their cash.
The corruption tax presses down
upon the economic wastelands,
where there are no jobs to be had.
Urban school systems remain broken for students and families. Yet they
feed the bureaucrats and the vendors
who sell goods and services to education bureaucrats.
And the well-fed know what
theyre supposed to do on Election
Day: Vote Democratic.
Big city school bureaucrats are
political creatures, loyal to their sponsors in the statehouse or at your City
Hall. The teachers unions, by defini-

tion, are about protecting their members. Everybodys covered but the
desperate.
And the kids? They dont have a
union. They cant vote. They dont
write campaign checks to politicians.
Those who suffer the most from
broken urban policy are those who
are told that Democrats are the only
ones who can protect them.
Protect them from what? Poverty,
violence, joblessness and bad schools?
All that has been provided.
Those who push broken government programs and liberal policy
arent evil people. Most intended to
work for the good.
But they made a terrible mistake in
thinking that the strong arm of government is the answer. It isnt. It
never was.
Are there alternatives to the crushing cynicism of the Democratic welfare state? Yes. Liberty is the answer,
not some politician using government
to empower people. Growth is the
answer, not government control.
People need hope. And meaningful
work which doesnt mean waltzing
around with a clipboard on some
government payroll is essential for
self-respect.
So here are some alternatives:
Radically cut taxes and change
workers compensation and other
anti-business laws in urban areas to
promote business job growth.
And support true school choice
meaning vouchers so impoverished
minority students arent deprived of a
future.
Democrat bosses, the trial lawyers
and public unions hate such ideas. But
then, theyre the muscle of Democratic politics.
That strong arm of government
helps politicians to maintain power
and control. But as weve seen, the
strong arm of government can also
pave the road to hell.

Way with John Kass and Jeff Carlin.

Superintendent Garry McCarthy and

TrumPoem:
An ode to
the Donalds
latest regret

For the past couple of weeks,


inspired by whatever remarkable
thing Donald Trump said that day,
Ive been writing a daily verse or two
of doggerel. Ive posted the verses
one at a time on Facebook and plan
to keep going as long as he does.
On Thursday, Trump gave a
speech in which he expressed regret for some of his remarkable
remarks. He didnt specify which
ones, so today, as a refresher course
on recent Trumpian comments, Im
sharing the verses of my ongoing
TrumPoem, all based on his words.
No, I dont believe in hate!
Did I say assassinate?
What I said was all in fun!
But dont let Hillry take your gun!
Am I dangrous? I am not!
Love my country, tons, a lot!
Why are folks so bleepin grumpy?
Sayin that my pals should dump me?
I love Amendment No. 2!
Let it tell you what to do.
Screw Amendment No. 1
Kill the press but keep your gun.
Im the prez you want in crisis
Not this prez who founded ISIS!
Im the guy to handle drama!
Who can trust Hussein Obama?
All I do is tell the truth!
Stuff that up your voting booth!
If Im dumped by this dumb nation?
Ill go on a great vacation!
People say that Im bombastic
No, Im not, Im just sarcastic.
Having fun and blowing smoke
Cant you dimwits take a joke?
Sunday is a day of rest
So, dear God, I did my best
Not to say a single word
Anyone could find absurd.
But
Then I had to post on Twitter
Not because Im mad or bitter
Just to say, and you can trust me:
Pundits and the press disgust me.
Folks keep saying I should change
Be politer, be less strange
Stay on message! thats their chant
Sorry, folks, I like to rant.
Let the critics grind their axes
I will not release my taxes!
Ill be what I want to be!
Ill just keep on being me!
We dont need more foreign pests
Make them take a values test!
Vet them very, very hard!
Keep them out of our backyard!
Im the guy for law and order!
Im the guy wholl seal the border!
Im the guy who never fails!
Im the guy with Roger Ailes!
Ailes is not a sexist dude
Gretchen Carlson is a prude
Im the guy who really rocks
Watch tonights town hall on Fox!
I hired a guy from Breitbart
To rev up my campaign
Ill show you on a pie chart
The voters I will gain!
My gurus name is Bannon
Hes right of the right wing
As subtle as a cannon
Hes gonna make me king!
Sorry that I hurt some folks
I really do regret
Whatever thing it was I said
Which, frankly, I forget.
Did I diss Ted Cruzs wife?
Or immigrants or Khan?
Mea culpa, kinda, not
Now let the games roll on!

Gov. Bruce Rauner, shown Wednesday, on Friday approved a bill that exempts feminine hygiene products from the state sales tax.

Governor OKs sales tax repeal


on feminine hygiene products
Change comes amid campaign
by backers for womens issues
By Kim Geiger
and Monique Garcia
Chicago Tribune

Illinois joined a handful of states and the


city of Chicago in repealing a so-called
tampon tax as Gov. Bruce Rauner approved a bill that exempts feminine hygiene
products from the state sales tax.
Currently, tampons and sanitary napkins
are taxed by the state of Illinois as luxury
items at 6.25 percent. The new law, which
takes effect Jan. 1, removes that tax by
putting the products in the same category as
necessities such as shampoo.
Earlier this year, the Chicago City
Council and Cook County commissioners
voted to exempt the products from their
sales taxes. The change comes amid a
campaign by advocates for womens issues
to end the tax in the U.S. and abroad.
This is just the start of a conversation
about the unfair pink taxes women face as
they buy products priced higher than
similar ones marketed to men, or in this
case, as they have to spend on products that
men dont, said state Sen. Melinda Bush,
D-Grayslake.
The governors action came Friday as he
signed, vetoed or rewrote more than three
dozen bills. Among them:
Rauner approved legislation that will

require companies to allow their employees


to use up to half of their sick time to care for
ailing family members.
He signed a bill that sets limits on
administrative fees charged by municipalities when they tow cars. That bill also
prohibits impounding a vehicle for illegal
parking unless its been parked for more
than 48 hours or has been an obstruction
during an emergency.
The governor approved a measure that
tasks his budget office with producing a
yearly report with a four-year budget
forecast that explains how the governor will
plan to remedy a shortfall if spending is
expected to exceed what the state takes in
from taxes and other forms of revenue.
This bipartisan proposal will require the
state to plan years in advance, instead of
continuing to kick the can down the road
year after year, said sponsoring Sen. Laura
Murphy, D-Des Plaines.
Rauner rejected a bill that he said would
allow the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition
Authority to issue $293 million in bonds to
replace the loan it used to fund construction
of a second hotel by McCormick Place. The
governor reasoned that it would increase
the risk to the state of having to cover any
shortfalls needed for the higher bond debt
over the next 50 years.
The state is not in a financial position to
accept this additional risk, Rauner wrote in
his veto message.
The governor rewrote a bill that would
allow the state to give $1 million to a

nonprofit organization to help food stamp


recipients access fresh fruits and vegetables
at farmers markets.
Rauner said he was concerned that up to
40 percent of the money could be spent on
administrative costs, and changed the
language to say that all of the money has to
be distributed to farmers markets. He also
slashed the grant amount in half and said it
should be treated as a trial program while
we study its effectiveness and ensure that
the funds are used to achieve the desired
outcomes.
And Rauner vetoed a bill that would have
made it clear that Cook County can take
hundreds of millions of dollars in annual
revenue from its higher sales tax and
contribute the money to its pension fund
as its already doing.
The veto came after the county objected
to the wording of the bill. County officials
and the governor have agreed to keep
working on the issue.
We do plan to return with a comprehensive bill that addresses objections and is one
which we are involved in drafting, said
Frank Shuftan, spokesman for County
Board President Toni Preckwinkle.
Lawmakers in the post-election session
can decide whether to try to override the
governors vetoes and rewrites.

Rauner would let state sue some inmates


Bill to end pursuing prisoners
for costs dead, sponsors say
By Steve Mills and Todd Lighty
Chicago Tribune

Gov. Bruce Rauner on Friday used his


amendatory veto power to rewrite a bill that
would have ended the states growing
practice of suing prison inmates to recover
the costs of their incarceration effectively
killing the legislation, according to the bills
two sponsors.
The bill from state Sen. Daniel Biss,
D-Evanston, and Rep. Kelly Cassidy, DChicago, now goes back to the General
Assembly with Rauners addition of a
financial threshold that would be determined by officials at the Illinois Department of Corrections. Inmates who have less
than the threshold in their bank or prison
accounts would be shielded from the
controversial lawsuits.
The General Assembly can accept Rauners rewrite, override it or let it die. Biss and
Cassidy said Friday they likely do not have
the votes to override the veto.
The bill is dead now because of the
governors actions, and that is a travesty,
Biss said Friday, noting that the bill had
passed the Senate and House with a narrow
margin. He killed a bill that would have
eliminated a wasteful and immoral program.
Rauner, in a message with his veto, said
that while he recognized that the lawsuits
could make it more difficult for some
inmates to rejoin society, he wanted to
prevent offenders particularly violent
offenders with significant assets from
profiting from their crimes.
He pointed to John Wayne Gacy, the
serial killer who tried to sell his paintings
before he was executed in 1994, as an
example.
While I agree that this power should be

used sparingly and judiciously, Rauner


said, there are circumstances when it is
warranted.
Cassidy, though, said state law already
prohibits inmates from profiting from their
crimes, making Rauners rewrite of the bill
unnecessary.
Cassidy said that if anybody should be
able to sue prison inmates for their assets, it
should be crime victims and not the state.
He said he wants to eliminate wasteful
programs and he wants to reform our
criminal justice system, Cassidy said of the
governor after she learned of the amendatory veto. This runs counter to that. ... This
has nothing to do with criminals profiting
from their crimes.
Illinois is one of at least 43 states that
allows officials to try to recoup what often
are called room-and-board fees from prisoners and parolees. Critics say such lawsuits recover little money, are overly
punitive and make it more difficult for
prisoners to get back on their feet after their
release. And a Tribune story in November

showed the lawsuits often targeted inmates


with little money and few prospects.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan, whose
office filed the lawsuits following referrals
from prison officials, supported the legislation, saying the lawsuits raised little money
and raised difficult moral questions. The
corrections department took no position on
the measure.
An IDOC spokeswoman said it was
premature to comment on Rauners move
before legislators have a chance to act on
the change.
The law that allowed the state to sue
prisoners and parolees for the cost of their
incarceration dates to 1982. Corrections
officials do not appear to have used it much
until last year, when the number of lawsuits
jumped from two each in 2012 and 2013 to
11 in 2015.
Among the cases the Tribune focused on
was that of Johnny Melton, who served 15
months for a drug conviction. Prison
officials targeted Melton after he received
nearly $32,000 from the settlement of a
lawsuit over his mothers death in a nursing
home, according to records. When he was
released from prison early last year, Melton
was forced to go to a homeless shelter and
applied for food stamps.
He died in June destitute, according to
his family.
In other cases, the state sued prisoners
who received relatively modest sums of
money, whether through an inheritance, a
trust fund or, like Melton, a wrongful death
settlement. The state has recovered more
than $500,000 since 2010, but about
$415,000 of that was obtained from just two
prisoners. The amount the state recovered
was a fraction of the prison systems $1.5
billion budget.

City Hyde Park


achieves strong
urban presence
Jeanne Gangs newest building
breaks the apartment monotony

Blair Kamin
Cityscapes

Architect Jeanne Gangs


buildings invariably are
experiments, as intriguing
for the ideas behind them
as for the buildings themselves. Her latest, City
Hyde Park, a 14-story highrise, is billed as a reinvention of the urban apartment
building a building type
that typically suffers from
tight budgets and visual
monotony.
At the commercial corner of Hyde Park Boulevard
(51st Street) and Lake Park
Avenue, the $119 million
project is Gangs first completed high-rise since her
celebrated 86-story Aqua
Tower and its undulating
balconies opened to acclaim in 2009.
City Hyde Park cant
match Aquas lyrical gracefulness, but its still one of
the bright spots of the
current building boom,
achieving a strong urban
presence thats true to the
city in its name.
The developer, Eli Ungar
of New Jersey-based Antheus Capital, wanted a
design with cachet, one
that would justify rents
(around $2,000 a month for
a one-bedroom) that approach downtown levels.
Thats a specialty of Gang,
whose Chicago-based
Studio Gang architecture
practice boasts a portfolio
of eye-catching skyscraper
designs that stretch from
New York to San Francisco.
At City Hyde Park, she
tweaks the conventional

format of a bland residential tower atop a base housing a parking garage. Two
levels of parking are shunted underground. The base
contains a Whole Foods
Market and other stores,
energizing the sidewalks. A
colorful tile mural, representing trees in the four
seasons, wraps around the
podium.
Some Hyde Parkers cant
stand it. I think its fine,
weaving City Hyde Park
into the fabric of the colorful, decorated masonry
buildings nearby.
The upgraded streetscape, which builds on the
success of the deftly
planned Harper Court
office, hotel and retail complex two blocks south,
helps to justify the citys
tax-increment financing
subsidy for the project. So
does the fact that 20 percent of City Hyde Parks
180 apartments rent at
below-market rates.
The real experimentation is upstairs. There,
Gang worked with structural engineer Magnusson
Klemencic Associates to
develop a unique arrangement of stacked concrete
panels that replaces conventional columns. The
setup resembles a house of
cards, but its structurally
stable and functionally
sound.
On the buildings zigzagging north side, which
is solid but hardly stellar,
the arrangement yields
greater-than-normal spans
between columns and
makes interiors more spacious. On the more intricately composed south
side, narrow trapezoidshaped balconies project
out from the stacked panels
like leaves coming off a
stem. Some of the balconies

are intimately scaled,


framed by ceilings one floor
above. Others offer views
upward to three stories of
uninterrupted space, as if
the facade were a canyon.
Here, City Hyde Park rises
above the ordinary.
The balconies animated
effect breaks down the
deadening standardization
of typical, form-followsfunction apartment highrises. Syncopated rhythms
and sculptural projections,
so different from Chicagos
current crop of glasssheathed minimalist
towers, deliver a quirky
energy that suggests indi-

vidualism, not mass man.


The design recalls an earlier attempt to reinvent
apartment living Habitat,
architect Moshe Safdies
spectacular stack of prefab
units at the Montreal
Worlds Fair of 1967.
Gangs hope is that the
balconies will be social as
well as visual, inviting an
apartment-dweller on one
of them to converse with a
neighbor on another. The
idea is an accrued beauty,
one in which ordinary
human activity people
sitting on chairs, reading
books, talking to one another adds to, rather than

detracts from, the buildings allure.


Its too early to tell if that
dream of an inhabited
facade will come true.
Gang had the same idea at
Aqua, but not everybody
wants to hang out on a
balcony 800 feet above the
sidewalk. City Hyde Parks
lesser height may create
greater opportunities for
interaction. So far, the
approach seems to be
working in the marketplace. The one-bedrooms
that line the south facade
are renting more quickly
than the two- and threebedrooms to the north, the
leasing agents report.
In contrast to Aqua,
where Gang was responsible only for the buildings
exterior, she had full control at City Hyde Park; the
integrated design shows it.
The trapezoidal geometry
of the balconies is echoed
on door handles, plaques
for individual apartments,
even a white pattern on
glass balcony walls thats
supposed to prevent bird
crashes.
The balconies offer
borrowed space to the
small apartments, making
them seem larger than they

are. The interiors are openplan, simply furnished,


with flow-through kitchens. You either like their
oddly shaped configurations or you dont. Those in
search of privacy can always draw shades.
The tight budget has
produced some obvious
drawbacks. The long corridors are straight-shot visual
bores despite a stab at creative ceiling lighting. There
is no rooftop deck, as in
many downtown apartment towers, and the lone
outdoor deck is relatively
small.
Nevertheless, Ungar
reports that the building is
more than 50 percent
leased; tenants are said to
include University of Chicago faculty, employees at
University of Chicago Hospitals and graduate students. Lively 53rd Street is a
short walk away, as is a
nearby Metra commuter
rail stop. Despite its shortcomings, then, City Hyde
Park simultaneously reflects and expands upon
the allure of a rising South
Side neighborhood.

Backlash over song revives


Chapman abuse issues

Domestic violence
groups misgivings
on trade resurface
By Patrick M.
OConnell
Chicago Tribune

The debate over the


Cubs acquisition of Aroldis
Chapman, who has been
accused of choking his girlfriend in the past, was
reignited recently when a
Wrigley Field DJ was fired
for playing a song some say
condones violence as the
player left the mound. The
incident underscored frustration many domestic violence agencies have expressed about the teams
decision to trade for the
player.
Chapman, a closer who
routinely throws 100 mph,
was suspended the first 30
games of the season for an
incident last year in which
he allegedly choked his girlfriend and fired gunshots.
The Cubs traded for Chapman in July, stoking discussions among baseball
faithful and the leaders of
domestic violence organizations about how teams and
fans deal with high-profile
athletes embroiled in accusations of abuse.
The Chapman controversy gathered a second
head of steam when the
Cubs said Monday they
fired a DJ for playing a song
many say condones violence against women after
Chapmans weekend appearance on the mound.
Those who work to provide services to battered
women, advocate for policies that protect women
and urge holding perpetrators accountable said the
team has only paid lip service to a serious issue.
We as a society, and as
sports fans, we spend a lot of
time and money on these
teams, and to me just being
a good player doesnt cut it,
said Vickie Smith, executive
director of the Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence. I guess the bottom

line is do you want to win


games or do you want to
actually stand up for the
community, and not just a
part of the community, all of
the community. I am an
individual who believes actions speak louder than
words.
I am a Cubs fan, by the
way, and I was very disappointed when I heard that
they had hired this guy,
Smith said.
To some, the firing of the
DJ for playing the song
Smack My B---- Up at
Wrigley Field on Aug. 14
after Chapman played in
the game, shows the team
still hasnt found the right
balance for the situation.
All of us think its ironic,
of course, that they hire
someone with Chapmans
background but they fire
the DJ for using what
theyre saying is a poor
choice of music, said Kathleen Doherty, executive director of the Chicago Metropolitan Battered Womens Network. It seems to
me like their ethics and
morals are all in the wrong
direction.
Firing someone who
plays music between innings is an easy out, Smith
said, because hes not the
guy throwing the pitches
and making the money for
the team.
Carol Gall, executive director of Sarahs Inn, an Oak
Park organization that
works to stop relationship
violence, said Chapman has
been a source of discussions
among family and friends,
many of whom are lifelong
Cubs fans. While the pitcher was held accountable
under MLBs domestic
abuse policy, Gall hopes the
path forward has not ended.
Now its really about
what else is being done to
support him and his family
and to continue to help, and
to make sure that hes receiving the support and
services he needs to change
his behaviors, Gall said.
We have to hope that is
happening behind the
scenes so we make sure

something like this doesnt


happen again.
Sarahs Inn helps run an
intervention program for
perpetrators, and Gall said
men often do not recognize
their actions are problematic or take responsibility for
the way they treat women.
Chapman was criticized for
what many perceived was
that very attitude during his
initial interviews with the
Chicago media upon joining
the team.
Advocates said there
continue to be myths and
misconceptions about domestic violence, and perhaps the Chapman episode
is a gateway to additional
discussions and awareness.
Domestic violence, they
said, happens any time one
person exerts, or tries to
gain, control over another.
It appears in many forms
physical, emotional, psychological, sexual. These
behaviors are often learned
over time, and they do not
change overnight.
Domestic violence can
happen anywhere, to anybody, Smith said.
When athletes or celebri-

domestic violence breaks


the silence, said Cindy
Southworth, executive vice
president of the National
Network to End Domestic
Violence, an important step
in the right direction. Another part of the process,
she said, is for friends and
family members to hold
men accountable for their
abusive actions. Many relatives often either refuse to
believe their loved one
could batter women or try

its ironic, of course, that they


hire someone with Chapmans background but they fire the DJ
Kathleen Doherty, executive director of the Chicago
Metropolitan Battered Womens Network
ties are accused, domestic
violence often is thrust onto
center stage, under a spotlight that has become
brighter in recent years as
high-profile incidents receive more attention and
people openly discuss issues that used to be treated
as private matters.
Professional sports
leagues and teams, in turn,
have begun to change their
discipline policies. Advocates said the Chapman
controversy has driven a
discussion about domestic
violence that would not
have happened in the past.

to explain away the behavior, actions that perpetuate


the cycle.
You need to have friends
and fellow athletes say, Im
your friend, youre my best
friend, but you cannot do
this. This is not OK,
Southworth said.
At the same time, Southworth said her group cautions against zero-tolerance policies for professional athletes. Such policies put additional pressure
on victims to stay silent for
fear of ruining a partners
career and put victims at
greater risk of being killed.
What we want are firm,

robust and serious policies


that hold athletes accountable but give them a chance
to change their behavior,
Southworth said.
The Cubs said they have
a mandatory domestic violence prevention program
for all employees. Cubs
President Theo Epstein said
in July when the Cubs
traded for Chapman that
the team did not make its
decision lightly and understands some fans may oppose the move.
But in the end, Epstein
said, we decided it was
appropriate to trade for a
player who has accepted his
discipline, already has been
disciplined by MLB, has
expressed his sorrow and
regret for the incident.
Chapman was not
charged with a crime in
connection with the Oct. 30
incident in Davie, Fla. Police
said insufficient evidence
and conflicting statements
made a conviction unlikely.
Chapman issued a statement saying he did not
harm his girlfriend.
The Chapman trade has
left some fans disappointed
and conflicted, especially
since he has a crucial role on
the mound at the end of
games. But for fans, there is
a difference, Gall said, between saying you care about
domestic violence and
working toward solutions.
No one says, Oh, yeah, I
believe in domestic vio-

lence. But what are people


actually doing to ensure
that this is not acceptable?
Gall said.
Caitlin Swieca, a 24-yearold fan from the Northwest
Side Dunning neighborhood upset by the signing,
decided to do something.
After watching Chapman
receive a warm welcome in
his Cubs debut, Swieca
wanted to find a way to
balance her love of the Cubs
and disgust at the trade. So
she took to social media,
posting on Twitter that she
decided to donate $10 to a
domestic violence agency
after every Chapman save.
Swiecas gesture quickly
picked up steam and has
turned into a mini-movement, with Cubs fans from
across the country joining
the effort, pledging small
amounts of cash to donate
to agencies close to their
homes. Swieca said #Pitchin4DV now generates about
$1,000 per save to an array
of organizations.
I just tried to figure out a
way I could deal with the
situation, Swieca said. I
cant really root for the
closer to blow saves if Im a
Cubs fan. ... I dont expect
the athletes to be saints, but
Id like some indication that
the team I give a lot of time
and money to takes it seriously.

A stunt plane performs beneath a gray sky at the Chicago Air and Water Show at North

Better weather expected for


day 2 of Air and Water Show
By Nereida Moreno
and William Lee
Chicago Tribune

If you waited until Sunday to hit the Chicago Air


and Water Show, youre in
for a bonus: better weather,
if the forecasters are right,
and a chance to see recently
retired Chicago Bear
Charles Peanut Tillman
tandem jump with the
popular Army Golden
Knights parachute team,
whose hotly anticipated act
was scuttled Saturday
morning by storms.
Sundays show, scheduled for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.,
will feature not only Tillman and the Golden
Knights jumping from an
aircraft at 12,500 feet, but
other top military and civilian flight teams from
around the country, including the headlining Air Force
Thunderbirds.
Spectators along the
lakefront will get a look at
the sleek new F-35, the
militarys most advanced
fighter jet, which will replace aging F-16s and A-10s.
Were going to have
great weather tomorrow ...
so we are going to run a full,
good, hard show and make a
lot of happy people, said

John Trick, who manages


the two-day air show that
typically draws 2 million
people each year.
Sundays forecast called
for mostly sunny skies with
a 20 percent chance of
showers after 1 p.m. and a
high near 76 degrees, according to the National
Weather Service.
Organizers opted to delay
Saturdays start as storms
lingered along the lakefront
and the Northwest Indiana
corridor from where some
of the shows aircraft take
off.
Show organizers work
with local emergency managers and the Federal Aviation Administration, who
participate in daily briefings
with local airports and pilots to ensure that visibility
is optimal, cloud cover is
low and flying conditions
safe, Trick said.
When storms move in
and ground aircraft, contingency plans kick in and
ultimately it means that the
whole show wont go on.
Performers can use Chicago air space for only so
long. Downtown skies must
be cleared by the scheduled
3 p.m. to make way for
overseas commercial flights

tional and Midway airports,


Trick added.
Bill Parrot, an aviation
professor at Lewis University in Romeoville, said the
show is like adding more
cars on a roadway.
I flew out of OHare for
21 years with an airline and
I know that every time Air
and Water Show is moving,
that does affect the flow in
and out of OHare, Parrot
said.
Despite Saturdays shortened show, the rain did little
to dampen the enthusiasm
of spectators like Victoria
and Paul Eggerstedt.
We like to people-watch
before the show starts, and
once the show starts, its
nonstop action, Victoria
Eggerstedt said from a spot
on Oak Street Beach. We
enjoy it every year.
Her husband, Paul, an Air
Force veteran, looks forward to watching the
Thunderbirds.
I was a jet mechanic, so
Im familiar with some of
the airplanes that are still
flying, he said. And I enjoy
seeing a lot of the new
technology. It brings back
some good memories.

BIRDS IN THEIR BONES

Field Museum volunteers get down and dirty collecting data in the name of science
By Joan Cary
Chicago Tribune

Dave Willard arrives at


the Field Museum of Natural History every weekday
morning by 4:30, even
though he retired from
there four years ago.
On Wednesdays, the bird
collection manager-turnedvolunteer expects plenty of
company. He goes to the
freezer and retrieves 150 to
200 dead birds, then lays
them on a table to thaw.
Around 6:30 a.m., volunteer Peter Lowther joins
him, and by midmorning six
or seven others have arrived. The Wednesday
crew, avian enthusiasts of all
ages, perch on stools around
the table. They converse
quietly but obviously enjoy
each others company as
they remove feathers and
skin from the partially
thawed bird carcasses.
This is the first step in
preparing bird skeletons for
science.
Its not real exciting and
its kind of messy, but its
important, Lowther said.
It isnt for everyone.
But its for them. The
Wednesday regulars plus 15
or so other volunteers
some doing messy jobs and
some on computers are a
large part of why the museum on Chicagos lakefront
boasts one of the largest
bird specimen collections in
the world, according to Ben
Marks, the museums manager of bird and zoological
collections.
More than a half-million
bird specimens representing 90 percent of the bird
species in the world are
stored above Bird Hall, the
part of the museum that
visitors see. Marks said the
Fields collection is eclipsed
only by the British Museum, the American Museum
of Natural History in New
York and the Smithsonian
Institution in Washington,
D.C.
The specimens whole
body skeletons, stuffed
birds (known as study
skins) and pickles (birds
in jars of alcohol) are
crucial to scientific research
that happens not only in
Chicago but around the
world.
We prepare over 4,000
bird skeletons annually. Because of that, birds that used
to be swept into gutters in

Ben Marks, left, works with Dave Willard, gathering information about dead birds. About
150 requests for research specimen loans come in from around the world each year.

the early-morning hours to


get them off the sidewalks
are now available for research and education, said
Marks, 44, of Chicago.
Theres no chance that
would be possible without
the volunteers. We are very
much committed to and in
debt to our volunteers.
Their work is very valuable
to us.
Volunteers say the dedication goes two ways.
Erin Englerth, a punk
model from Chicagos Roscoe Village community, has
a life-size tattoo of a rosebreasted grosbeak on her
forearm memorializing the
first bird she processed.
It can be gross, but its
also pretty interesting, she
said of her Wednesday
work. How else could you
get this close to a bird to
study them?
There are plenty of birds
here to study and more will
be coming during the fall
migration, Marks said.
Between 6,000 and 7,000
dead birds are added to the
museums collection each
year. The majority are
brought in by Chicago Bird
Collision Monitors, a group
of 100 volunteers who work
in teams before sunrise,
making daily treks through
downtown during migration season to pick up injured and dead birds that
have hit the windows.
Injured birds are usually
taken to Willowbrook Wildlife Center, a rehab and
education center in Glen
Ellyn. Dead birds, ranging

from 1 to 300 on the most


extreme days of spring and
fall migration, go to the
Field, said Annette Prince,
director of Chicago Bird
Collision Monitors.
The Field collection began to grow about 35 years
ago when Willard started a
salvage program. He and a
few other employees and
volunteers began picking
up dead and injured birds
around McCormick Place
in the predawn hours, before crows and gulls got to
them, Marks said. In 2003,
the Chicago Bird Collision
Monitors started their rescue and retrieving efforts,
adding more birds to the
collection.
At the Field, the dead
birds are immediately
stored in a freezer, where
staff and volunteers say a
bird can live forever. Staff
members take a muscle
sample, look at whats in the
stomach and record data,
including measurements
and when and where the
bird was found. The bird is
tagged and assigned a number a number that is now
more than 500,000.
The when and where are
particularly valuable.
Without that info, its of
no use to science, Marks
said.
Field Museum research
covers a variety of topics,
including birds and their
pathogens and parasites, assessing body size changes in
common migrant species,
bird conservation in South
America and Central Africa,

and more. The information


provided by these birds isnt
valuable just to Field researchers. About 150 requests for specimen loans
come in from universities
and scientists around the
world each year, he said.
Jerome Fuchs, curator of
birds at the Paris Museum
of Natural History, said
specimens borrowed from
the Field helped his institution understand the
evolutionary relationships
of species, genetic differentiation among populations
and the distribution limits
of those populations.
The Field Museums
biodiversity program is undoubtedly among the best
in the world, said Fuchs,
who added that Marks and
other Field ornithologists
are considered world experts on DNA analyses.
Once they are inside the
Field, all birds are treated
the same.
Even if we have thousands of white-throated
sparrows, we are not going
to throw the next away,
Marks said. Theyre all
individuals and could potentially provide information for research.
The same could be said of
the volunteers. Marks himself was once a volunteer in
the bird collection. The
volunteers he now works
with are among more than
650 throughout the museum, according to Megan
Bradley, volunteer manager
at the Field. Among them
are Glenn Gabanski, 68, of

Darien, an 11-year volunteer


who is a retired math teacher. He recently spent his
morning removing wings
from American woodcocks
for a research project on
how the age of a bird can be
assessed by studying the
plumage.
And then theres Lowther, 68, of Homewood, who
retired from a tech job at the
museum in 2010 but came
back as a volunteer in 2011.
He has a doctorate in ornithology.
I guess a chance to look
at the birds in the hand is a
nice opportunity, Lowther
said. But I also see the
value in why this is done.
Its a way to actually be
doing something. Were
creating a lot of potential for
future research and were
learning a little bit, too. The
value of doing this overcomes whatever unpleasantness there might be.
Willard, of Hyde Park,
has been fascinated by birds
since watching them as a
child. Basically I was paid
here for my hobby for 35
years. Now I just enjoy my
hobby.
Englerth, 27, has worked
in taxidermy and also volunteers on Mondays at the
Field making study skins.
She volunteered in the
mammals area before coming to bird collections.
I feel like I learn 100
new things every time Im
there, she said of the bird
collections area where she
began volunteering in October. The people are wonderful. Were such an eclectic group, but we have so
much in common.
There are also college
students, artists and a parttime bike messenger at the
Wednesday table, and others who spend their free
time helping out. Some are
truly behind the scenes.
Back in a quiet corner,
Joanna Hosteny and Aaron
Mercer choose their own
hours but spend many of
them numbering each bone
of the cleaned skeletons
that come their way, then
put them neatly in boxes
that will be labeled by another volunteer.
Hosteny, 75, a calligrapher, began volunteering as
a docent in the Bird Hall but
now prefers this solitary
work. She prints minuscule
numbers on each bone of
birds that are crow size or

larger. Smaller bird skeletons are stored in boxes


like puzzle pieces.
I enjoy making a contribution, said Hosteny, of
Chicago. Im getting pretty
darn good at bird bones. Its
a kick.
Other volunteers transcribe handwritten data, file
materials, sort tissue samples and assist in public
programs among other
things, Marks said.
Kayleigh Kueffner, a volunteer later hired as a collections assistant, creates
study skins. She removes
almost all of the insides and
replaces them with cotton,
leaving a bird that is lying on
its back with the wings
folded.
Its pretty fascinating to
me but definitely not stomached by everyone, she
said, while removing a
woodpeckers brain. It is
exciting though to be a part
of the whole research effort.
Lowther said he has
made two study skins, but
its not for him. It is a
difficult job that requires
hours of training. He prefers roughing removing
feathers and skin. He can do
a songbird in 2 12 minutes.
One of his tablemates
remembers how long it took
to rough a goose. Another
recalls a swan they worked
on. And still another, a
sandhill crane. They continue on their individual birds
while they talk.
Then Gabanski plays the
trump card, recalling when
he and another volunteer
roughed an albatross that
covered the entire table.
It took hours, he said.
Peggy Macnamara, the
museums artist-in-residence who works around
the corner on the third floor
from where these more
science-minded people
are, said she loves just listening to them.
Its a heavenly place up
here, Macnamara said.
Theyre in there eating
doughnuts together and
ripping birds apart and having nice conversations.
Said Willard: Maybe its
just luck that we have personalities here that mesh so
well. I havent met many
bird people that I havent
liked. But this is a particularly fun group.

Secret
to KFC
chicken
revealed?

Recipe
remains

KFC, from Page 1

herbs and spices so that no


single entity can crack the
code.
Feeding into the mystique, the recently revamped KFC website,
www.colonelsanders.com,
features a Colonel Sanders
character saying hes finally
ready to tell the world
whats in the recipe. Just as
hes about to spill the beans,
the sound malfunctions
and an out of order sign
pops up on the screen.
The recipe is, without
question, a secret as juicy as
well-fried fowl and has
been for the better part of a
century.
So, imagine my surprise
when a list of 11 herbs and
spices was plucked from a
Sanders family scrapbook
and placed into my hands.
Crazy, right?
Let me explain
Our story begins with
my trip to the small town of
Corbin, Ky., where the Colonel first served his chicken more than 75 years ago
to motorists at the service
station he ran. Im here to
visit the Harland Sanders
Cafe and Museum, a shrine
of sorts to the fried chicken
magnate. His namesake
restaurant has been restored to its mid-20th-century appearance but with a
modern-day KFC store as
an appendage. My assignment: Research the restaurant, museum and fried
chicken in Corbin for a
Fork in the Road feature
in the Chicago Tribunes
Travel section.
With the help of the
local tourism office, I arrange to meet a man named
Joe Ledington. The 67year-old retired teacher
has spent his entire life in
Appalachia. He still lives in
the house in which he grew
up, just north of the city
limits of Corbin, a town of
about 7,300. He agrees to
meet me to share a few
yarns about the Colonel.
You see, the guy he called
H.D. and Old Man Sanders was his uncle. Ledington says he used to do
chores in the modest cafe
as a young boy, making a
quarter a day to sweep and
clean up.
I enter the dark-paneled
restaurant lit by naked fluorescent tubes and find Ledington leafing through a
photo album. His wife, Jill,
sits quietly at the next table,
munching chicken from a
familiar red-and-white
box.
Ledington and I shake
hands, and I tell him about
the assignment that
brought me to this part of
southeast Kentucky. Before
I can even open my notebook, he draws my attention to the photo album
overstuffed with pictures,
newspaper clippings and
various family documents.
This was Aunt Claudias album, he says, referring to his fathers sister,
Claudia Ledington, who
became Harland Sanders
second wife in the late 40s.
Claudia worked as a waitress in the cafe and was
instrumental in launching
what would become a
multibillion-dollar fastfood chain boasting nearly
20,000 KFC restaurants in
more than 125 countries.
The album, with its nondescript cover and clear
cellophane sheets, looks
like the kind I used to buy
for a buck at Walgreens.
Ledington turns the pages,
occasionally stopping to
point out certain pictures,
like the one of him posing
with his famous uncle
and others taken at the
opening of a KFC in some
faraway land. Sanders was
always sporting one of his
iconic white suits. Ledington says he had a closet full
of them.
Ledington continues to
leaf through the family
scrapbook, pausing here
and there to share a memory or an anecdote about his
uncle. At the back of the
album is an official-looking
document, its pages stapled
together: the last will and
testament of his Aunt Claudia, he tells me. She died on
New Years Eve 1996 at
age 94.
I can show you what
every family member got,
he says, poring over the

Chicago Tribune

The Chicago Tribune


reached out to KFCs parent
corporation, Louisville, Ky.based Yum! Brands, with
questions regarding our stories. A company representative provided these answers
by email:

JAY JONES/PHOTOS FOR THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Joe Ledington shows a 1980s photo of him with his uncle, Colonel Harland Sanders, creator of Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Ledington said its possible a list of 11 herbs and spices, written on the back of what he
says is the will of the Colonels second wife, is the blend behind KFCs Original Recipe.

The Colonel started selling his fried chicken more than 75 years ago to motorists at a
service station he ran in Corbin, Ky. His first restaurant still serves his signature fare.

papers. This was my dad,


Robert Ledington. He was
the first one. He got
$209,888.
But what Im really interested in is the handwritten note on the back of
the document. At the top of
the page, in blue ink, it
reads, 11 Spices Mix
With 2 Cups White Fl.
Thats followed by an enumerated list of herbs and
spices. Eleven herbs and
spices. And the measurements for each.
Could this be what I
think it is? The 11 herbs and
spices?
Ledington tells me, yep,
this is it.
That is the original 11
herbs and spices that were
supposed to be so secretive, he says with conviction.
(In a subsequent phone
interview with a Tribune
editor, Ledington dialed
back his certainty and expressed reluctance about
sharing a recipe that if
its legit ranks among
corporate Americas most
closely guarded secrets. It
could be; I dont know for
sure, he said about the
handwritten list, adding

that this was the first time


hed shown it to a reporter.
Ive only had that album
for four years, since my
sister passed away.)
During our chat, Ledington quickly points out that
the writing is not his uncles. Hes not sure who
jotted down the list of 11
ingredients. But he says
hes sure its authentic
because, as a boy, he used to
help blend those herbs and
spices on the flat concrete
roof of his uncles garage.
I mixed them over the
top of the garage for years,
he recalls, noting that the
job came with the fringe
benefit of getting to use the
swimming pool at Sanders
motel-restaurant complex
a nice perk during the
hot summer months.
The big thing we did
was mix it with flour and
bag it up and sell it to
restaurants, Ledington
says. Actually, my job was
cutting up chickens and
bagging up chicken mix.
Thats what I did as a 10-,
11-, 12-year-old kid.
The main ingredients for
the coating, according to
this recipe, are paprika
(4 tablespoons), white pep-

per (3 tablespoons) and


garlic salt (2 tablespoons).
But Ledington says one
ingredient is the real star.
The main ingredient is
white pepper, he says. I
call that the secret ingredient. Nobody (in the 1950s)
knew what white pepper
was. Nobody knew how to
use it.
Later, back in Chicago,
the Tribune put the recipe
to the test in its on-site
kitchen and compared it
with a bucket of KFC Original Recipe chicken. (Bottom line: It was finger
lickin good. See the accompanying story for specifics.)
The Colonels nephew
isnt the first person to
claim he may hold the
secret to KFCs success.
On the internet, cooks
have posted copycat recipes they say replicate the
original. Only a few of
those contain the white
pepper Ledington claims is
key.
Probably the most famous previous find occurred more than 15 years
ago, when a couple in
Shelbyville, Ky., said they
stumbled upon what could

be the secret recipe in the


basement of the home they
bought from Harland and
Claudia Sanders in the 70s.
Tommy and Cherry Settle
reportedly found the recipe
written on a piece of paper
tucked inside a 1964 datebook.
KFCs parent company
responded by suing the
Settles. The case was
dropped after corporate officials concluded the recipe
wasnt even close to the
original.
I showed Ledingtons list
of 11 herbs and spices to
KFCs parent corporation,
Yum! Brands, located on
Colonel Sanders Lane in
Louisville. I asked if it is
indeed the Colonels Original Recipe.
A KFC spokesperson responded via email:
In the 1940s, Colonel
Sanders developed the
original recipe chicken to
be sold at his gas station
diner. At the time, the
recipe was written above
the door so anyone could
have read it. But today, we
go to great lengths to protect such a sacred blend of
herbs and spices. In fact,
the recipe ranks among
Americas most valuable
trade secrets.
I tried again, adding that
a yes, no or no comment would be helpful.
The response: Lots of
people through the years
have claimed to discover or
figure out the secret recipe,
but no ones ever been
right.
Whats not a secret is the
pressure-cooking technique used by Sanders and
now KFC to make the fried
chicken. In the early 50s,
the Colonel an honorary
title bestowed by the governor of Kentucky began
selling to other restaurants
the two keys to his tasty
birds: custom pressure
cookers and the enigmatic
mix.
The original KFC
chicken, I think, was better,
because it had more breading to it, Ledington says.
It was individually handbreaded and dropped in
those pressure cookers.
You cooked it until it started turning brown. And
then you put the lid on the
pressure cooker and
brought it to 12 pounds of
pressure for 10 minutes.
And then you started letting the pressure off, and
when you uncapped it and
the pressure was off, it was
perfect: golden brown and
fall-off-the-bone.
As I sit across from this
unassuming fellow with a
Southern drawl, Im a bit in
shock at the prospect of
being privy to what might
be the secret recipe, perfected by the Colonel in
this very spot.
I take a few pictures of
Ledington and his photo
album. Theres a little more
small talk, by which time
his wife is done with her
lunch. We all shake hands
and say goodbye.
I watch Ledington
gather his scrapbook. He
walks out of the restaurant,
whose floors he said he
swept as a kid, carrying
with him what could be a
secret so valuable, it belongs on the other side of
Kentucky.
In Fort Knox.

Q: Are the 11 herbs and


spices (we provided) the
ingredients for Colonel
Sanders Original Recipe
Kentucky Fried Chicken?
A: There are only a few
people in the world who
know the Original Recipe.
KFC is an iconic brand
that all started with a worldfamous recipe more than 70
years ago. In the 1940s,
Colonel Sanders developed
the original recipe chicken
to be sold at his gas station
diner. At the time, the recipe
was written above the door
so anyone could have read
it. But today, we go to great
lengths to protect such a
sacred blend of herbs and
spices. In fact, the recipe
ranks among Americas
most valuable trade secrets.
Q: Am I interpreting
the answer regarding the
recipe correctly: that
KFC/Yum is not willing to
specifically address
whether the recipe the
Tribune provided is indeed the original recipe?
A yes, no or no comment would be helpful.
A: Lots of people through
the years have claimed to
discover or figure out the
secret recipe, but no ones
ever been right.
Q: Where is the Original Recipe for KFC kept,
and what safeguards are
in place to protect it from
getting out?
A: We have a high-tech
home for the Colonels
handwritten Original Recipe from 1940 here in our
headquarters in Louisville,
Ky. Its stored in a secret
vault in a digital safe that
only a few people have
access to and no one person
can access it alone (yes, we
are that serious). The vault
is monitored with a 24-hour
video and motion-detection
surveillance system.
Q: Does KFC Corp. use
multiple suppliers to produce and mix its Original
Recipe blend so that no
one entity is privy to the
recipe?
A: To ensure the secrecy
of the recipe, KFCs 11 herbs
and spices are prepared by
two different suppliers before being combined together and packaged for our
restaurants. As we said,
there are only a few people
in the world who know the
Original Recipe.
Q: Does KFC continue
to use the Colonels Original Recipe to make its
fried chicken, or has the
recipe been modified over
the years?
A: Kentucky Fried Chicken serves incredible tasting
chicken made the hard way
and The Colonels Original
Recipe is still at the heart of
our business in every one of
our nearly 20,000 KFC restaurants in more than 125
countries.
We have cooks in every
one of our restaurants who
hand bread and freshly prepare chicken all day every
day. The chicken is prepared the same way Colonel
Sanders first made it in the
1940s we dont take any
shortcuts. It takes 25 minutes start to finish to prepare for our customers.
What some people may
not know, is that in the
1970s we added an additional recipe Extra Crispy
Chicken. Extra Crispy is
double breaded by hand
with a unique mix of herbs
and spices, then it is open
fried. By comparison, Original Recipe uses the 11 herbs
and spices, is hand breaded
once and pressure fried in
Colonels unique method.
Q: Is there MSG (flavor
enhancer) in the Original
Recipe chicken now
served at KFC stores?
A: Yes, there are trace
amounts of MSG in Original
Recipe chicken, which we
disclose on our website in
our menu item ingredients.

Putting the 11 herbs and spices to the test


By Joe Gray

Chicago Tribune

Countless recipes have


been tried out in the Tribune test kitchen but never
one quite like this.
Our mission: find out if 11
ingredients handwritten on
a piece of paper could be the
secret blend of 11 herbs and
spices that go into Kentucky
Fried Chickens Original
Recipe a closely guarded
formula that remains one of
the worlds biggest culinary
mysteries.
The recipe came to us by
way of Colonel Harland
Sanders nephew, Joe Ledington of Kentucky. He
says he found it in a scrapbook belonging to his late
Aunt Claudia, Sanders second wife. Ledington, 67,
says he used to blend the
spices that went into his
uncles world-famous fried
chicken, and the recipe in
question is the real deal.
We wanted to see make
that taste for ourselves.
So we put it to the test.
Our aim was not to replicate the exact cooking
method used by KFC. That
method has been explored
and written about by others.
Indeed, we decided to soak
the raw chicken in a buttermilk-egg bath before frying
based on some of those
descriptions. Instead, we
wanted to test the spice
blend detailed in the recipe,
which also calls for two
cups of white flour.
Several batches of chicken were prepared in the
Tribune test kitchen by recipe tester and stylist Lisa
Schumacher. Food & Dining
reporters and editors tasted
each batch, comparing it to
a bucket of KFC Original
Recipe fried chicken that
we purchased at the restaurant at 1144 S. Western Ave.
in Chicago.
We bought all new herbs
and spices common grocery store brands for the
testing. We used all-purpose flour and standard
table salt.
The spice recipe, as written:
11 Spices Mix With 2
Cups White Fl.

1) 2/3 Ts Salt
2) 1/2 Ts Thyme
3) 1/2 Ts Basil
4) 1/3 Ts Origino (sic)
5) 1 Ts Celery Salt
6) 1 Ts Black Pepper
7) 1 Ts Dried Mustard
8) 4 Ts Paprika
9) 2 Ts Garlic Salt
10) 1 Ts Ground Ginger
11) 3 Ts White Pepper
The first challenge was to
determine what that capital
T meant. Standard practice
in abbreviating recipe measures has a capital T standing for tablespoon. But what
if the person who wrote the
list on a seemingly random
piece of paper meant teaspoon? So we tested the
spice mix both ways: with
teaspoon measures and
with tablespoon measures,
both mixed into two cups of
flour.
In comparing those first
two batches, tasters immediately agreed that the
answer was: T equals tablespoons. After frying, the
coating with the lesser
amount of herbs and spices
did not have the intensity of
flavor we were looking for.
But even the flavor of the
favored batch wasnt quite
right. Turns out the frying
oil was too hot, causing the
breading to brown too
much, which overpowered
the taste of the herbs and
spices.
For the next couple of
batches, Schumacher tried
double dipping into the
spice and flour mixture. Too
much coating, tasters decided.
With the oil temperature
just right at 350 degrees, the
chicken soaked in buttermilk and coated just once in
the breading mixture, we
had our final tasting.
How was it? Well, really
good. In fact, tasters agreed
the test kitchen fried chicken was even better than the
Colonels.
But more important, did
it taste like the Colonels
secret blend of herbs and
spices? It came very close,
yet something was still
missing. Thats when a reporter grabbed a small container of the MSG flavor-

enhancer Accent (how did


that get in the test kitchen?)
and sprinkled it on a piece
of the fried chicken. That
did the trick. Our chicken
was virtually indistinguishable from the batch bought
at KFC. (Does KFC add
MSG? A KFC spokesperson
confirms that it does use it
in the Original Recipe
chicken.)
Bottom line, could this be
the Colonels secret blend of
11 herbs and spices? We sure
think so. The only folks who
can say definitively are the
keepers of the recipe at
KFCs parent company,
Yum! Brands. We asked, but
the company would only
say, Lots of people through
the years have claimed to
discover or figure out the
secret recipe, but no ones
ever been right.
All we know is the recipe
we tested certainly tastes
like KFC. And whatever it
is, its finger lickin good.

and spices; set aside.

Mix the buttermilk and egg together in


a separate bowl until combined. Soak
the chicken in the buttermilk mixture at
room temperature, 20-30 minutes.

Remove chicken from the buttermilk,


allowing excess to drip off. Dip the
chicken pieces in the herb-spice-flour
mixture to coat all sides, shaking off
excess. Allow to sit on a rack over a baking
sheet, 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat about 3 inches of the


oil in a large Dutch oven (or similar
heavy pot with high sides) over
medium-high heat to 350 degrees. (Use a
deep-frying thermometer to check the
temperature.) When temperature is
reached, lower the heat to medium to
maintain it at 350. Fry 3 or 4 pieces at a
time, being careful not to crowd the pot.
Fry until medium golden brown, turning
once, 15-18 minutes. Transfer chicken pieces
to a baking sheet covered with paper
towels. Allow the oil to return to
temperature before adding more chicken.
Repeat with remaining chicken.

name to her reparation
checks from the German
government.
In the court examination, Chervyatiuk said: It
belonged to me, everything.
She knew that and she told
it to everyone.
Suspecting fraud, a bank
official in December contacted the public guardians
office. In March, Associate
Cook County Judge Shauna Boliker authorized the
office to gather financial
records and determine
how much of Bridgemans
money Chervyatiuk spent
on her care and how much
he allegedly converted for
his own use.
The agency, which now
is Bridgemans legal guardian, says it will seek court
permission to recover any
funds wrongly converted
by Chervyatiuk. As the probate case proceeds, Boliker
has ordered financial institutions to freeze
$170,000 of the priests
personal and business bank
accounts.
At the public guardians
request, a doctor this year
examined Bridgeman and
determined she was totally incapable of making
financial and personal decisions.

ried a U.S. service member


and would serve for more
than two decades as secretary of Chervyatiuks
church, court records
show. Her husband died in
2004 at age 79. The couple
had no children.
In church I was her
priest and at home I was
her beloved son, Chervyatiuk testified during the
June 24 probate court examination. Chervyatiuk
was born in Germany and
raised in Ukraine, he said.
During the past five
years, Bridgeman had been
unable to cook, wash or
shop for herself, Chervyatiuk said. She kept a lot of
stuff in the house. So you
couldnt really walk in the
house. You had to find a
path, he said.
In March 2015, Bridgeman fell and injured a hip,
records show. At the hospital she was diagnosed with
dementia. Chervyatiuk
then placed her in a Chicago nursing home, records
show.
A day later, Chervyatiuk
met with Bridgeman and
lawyer Julian Kulas at the
nursing facility and Kulas
drafted papers that gave
Chervyatiuk power of at-

torney for Bridgeman, according to the public


guardian.
That power of attorney
made him responsible to
use her money for her good
and in her best interest, and
not for himself, Harris
said.
Kulas son, Paul Kulas, is
acting as his fathers attorney in the case and said
there was no improper
conduct on Kulas part.
Kulas is cooperating fully
with the public guardian
and the court, his son said.
In the next 12 months,
Chervyatiuk cashed in two
CDs worth $170,000 and
transferred other funds to
accounts he alone controlled, probate court records filed by the public
guardian allege. Chervyatiuk used his legal status to
control Bridgemans accounts, worth at least
$540,000 and perhaps as
much as $625,000, according to the public guardian.
During that period,
Chervyatiuk put at least
$22,000 of Bridgemans
funds into two restaurants
he ran with Alban Tase, 41.
He also directly gave Tase
two checks from Bridgemans account totaling

$6,500, probate court records show.


Tase pleaded guilty in
2010 to federal drug conspiracy charges after an
undercover operative met
with him in a Chicago
nightclub and steakhouse
to trade shipments of
stolen cigarettes for Ecstasy pills.
He was among more
than a dozen defendants
convicted as part of a global
Balkan crime operation
that laundered money and
trafficked in heroin, guns
and contraband consumer
goods, federal court records show.
Authorities tracked the
crime rings deals from
New Jersey to Canada,
then the Netherlands, Albania and regions of Macedonia, Serbia and Kosovo.
Tase completed three
years of supervised release
in May following a federal
prison term that is not
specified in public records.
Attempts to reach him for
comment were not successful.
In Chervyatiuks June 24
examination, he said Tase
was his business partner in
two Chicago-area pancake
house restaurants, both
since closed. Chervyatiuk
said he did not know Tase
was a convicted felon.
I just know one thing.
He stole money from me
too, and I dont know
where he is, Chervyatiuk
testified.
Chervyatiuk later told
the Tribune that Tase was
involved with only one of
the pancake houses.
Chervyatiuk also wired
thousands of dollars to a
Western Union office in
Ukraine, authorizing local
contacts to pick up the
money, records show.
We were helping the
church, Chervyatiuk said,
adding that the funds were

for an iconostasis one of


the panels of icons and
religious paintings that
adorn Eastern Orthodox
churches.
Asked in the court examination if the money
wasnt instead spent on the
Ukrainian-Russian military
conflict, Chervyatiuk said:
I dont really want to talk
about it now.
In the case of one
$26,000 Bridgeman check,
Chervyatiuk testified: I
dont recall what I did with
that, possibly for my own
things.
One of Bridgemans
home health care aides
allegedly told the public
guardian that Bridgeman
sometimes seemed confused and treated Chervyatiuk like her deceased husband.
The aide said she saw
Chervyatiuk pretend to be
Bridgemans husband and
kiss her on the lips, according to court papers
filed by the public guardian.
Chervyatiuk also took
title to land Bridgeman had
owned in Texas, saying in
his court examination that
Bridgeman gave him the
property. One day she did
a surprise to me. She took
me to a restaurant and gave
me those papers, he said.
Bridgeman was not the
only parishioner who gave
Chervyatiuk large personal
gifts, records show. Another church follower, Maria
Lewczenko, died in December at 93 and made him
executor of her estate with
$20,000 in accounts and
$100,000 in real estate.
Chervyatiuk declined to
discuss that matter with
the Tribune, saying only: I
had many women who I
tried to help.

PERSPECTIVE
The bare truth about
French burkini bans

Theyre no
favor to Muslim
women

Steve Chapman
A beach in France is likely to feature some sights that would shock
many Americans, such as bare-breasted women and paunchy middle-aged
men in tiny Speedos. Lately it may
also feature a sight that would shock
many French people: females who
cover up.
These beachgoers wear a swimsuit
called a burkini, favored by some
Muslims because it conceals everything but the hands, feet and face. But
though Muslims in France are expected to tolerate lavish displays of
flesh by others, many non-Muslims
feel no reciprocal obligation to let the
demure practice modesty.
Some French municipalities have
banned these suits from public beaches, claiming to uphold hygiene, secularism and even public morals.
Some French think the burkini signifies sexist oppression. The mayor of
Cannes labeled it a symbol of Islamic
extremism.
France does not lock away a womans body, exclaimed right-wing
leader Marine Le Pen. This is the
soul of France that is in question.
Thats right: A Frenchwoman wearing nothing but a thong is really baring her soul.
Prime Minister Manuel Valls
claims the burkini symbolizes Islams
enslavement of women. Cabinet
member Laurence Rossignol says
Islams function is to hide womens
bodies in order to better control
them.
Their argument goes as follows:
France must dictate what Muslim
women wear to teach them that no
one may dictate what they wear. In
the name of promoting the freedom of
Muslim women, government should
deprive them of the right to make
their own apparel choices.
Its the logical extension of Frances
law against full-face coverings, particularly the kind worn by some Muslim women. Supporters of that law,
enacted in 2010, said it was needed to
keep criminals from concealing their
identity. That excuse doesnt work for
the burkini, which confirms it was
just that: an excuse.
There is nothing inherently oppressive about this swimwear. Presumably some women don it only
because men insist. But there are
doubtless other French women who
buy skimpy suits in submission to
male coercion and social pressures.
Other women are capable of deciding they prefer more coverage. A
maker of modest swimwear called Sea

Tunisian women, one wearing a burkini, a full-body swimsuit for Muslim women, in the water at a beach near Tunis.

Secret was founded by two Orthodox


Jewish women who report that
they sell not only to Jews and Muslims but even Christians.
When snorkeling, my highly independent wife has found she needs a
long-sleeved top and long shorts to
keep her fair skin from being torched
by the tropical sun. British celebrity
chef Nigella Lawson, whose voluptuous upper torso is hardly a state
secret, has worn a burkini at the
beach to preserve her pale complexion.
These women can think for themselves. Why assume Muslims cant?
French-Tunisian historian Leyla
Dakhli told The Associated Press
there are as many reasons behind
such decisions as there are women in
the world. Reading womens minds
through their attire is an unreliable
science.
If some Muslim men employ violence or threats to control their wives
and daughters, the target of government policy should be detecting and

ending that sort of abuse. Forbidding


burkinis is like trying to combat rape
by telling women they cant have sex.
A ban on modest clothing will not
emancipate tyrannized females but
add to their oppression. A woman
whose husband allows her to swim
only in a burkini probably wont respond to a ban by letting her venture
forth in a two-piece. He will probably
respond by not letting her swim at all.
Instead of freeing the affected Muslim women, a ban will trap them in
their homes.
Marwan Muhammad, executive
director of the Center Against Islamophobia in France, told The New
York Times that burkinis are a marker
of liberation, not repression. In conservative Muslim countries, The
Times paraphrased, women would
never go to a beach with men, much
less go swimming, since even in the
burkini, the wet cloth sticks to a womans body, outlining her curves.
Muhammad said that Muslim
women who didnt used to enjoy that

day at the beach or at the pool are


now taking part, they are socializing.
Yes maybe even with people who
wear more revealing garments, interaction that could be educational for
everyone involved.
The key to a free society is the
principle of live and let live accepting your neighbors right to live
by beliefs you may not share, as long
as your neighbor extends you the
same latitude. Any mayor or other
leader who finds the burkini objectionable has a perfectly good option:
Dont wear one.

were certainly in on the
Deez Nuts and Harambe
jokes, similar to others
that PPP has used to draw

ordinary surveys.
But what caught my eye
in the cross-tabs were the
responses to what looked
like a serious question:
Do you think ACORN
(Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) will steal the
election for Hillary Clinton, or not?
Republicans have alleged that the liberals in
ACORN engaged in systemic voter fraud allegations with nothing
significant behind them,
by the way and 24 percent of respondents answered yes. Another 36
percent responded that
they werent sure if
ACORN was going to steal
the election for Clinton.

CHICAGO FLASHBACK
Breaking history since 1847

REGIONAL HISTORY CENTER AT NIU

Olympian Tidye Pickett, a Chicagoan in the 1936 Berlin Games, was profiled by Northern Illinois University in 1984, when she helped with the Los Angeles Games.

Tidye Picketts legacy


Chicago track star was first African-American woman to compete in Olympics

By Ron Grossman |

Chicago Tribune

s the African-American members of the 2016 U.S. womens


track and field team step into the starting blocks this
month at the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, they
are following in the footsteps of Chicagos Tidye Pickett,
the first black woman to run in an Olympic event.

When Pickett made the 1936 U.S.


Olympic team, the Chicago trackand-field star, in effect, signed up for
the proverbial leap from the frying
pan into the fire. She traveled from a
segregated America to an Olympics
in Berlin where Adolf Hitler intended to showcase his racist ideology. The Nazi dictator confidently
expected German athletes to vanquish untermenschen lesser breed
competitors, including Jews and
blacks.
Systematically these Negroid
parasites in our national body corrupt our innocent fair-haired girls,
Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf, his
autobiography.
That would not have been the
first time Pickett was confronted
with such hatred. Interracial romantic relationships were equally
taboo in the U.S.
Pickett grew up on Chicagos
South Side, where it was perilous
for blacks to venture across the
borders separating black and white
neighborhoods. Sports facilities
open to blacks were sparse.
Fortunately, her family lived just
across from Washington Park,
where the Chicago Daily News held
picnics for its newspaper delivery
boys that featured foot races with
prizes. So I got into the races and
started coming home with baseball
hats and cameras, Pickett recalled
in 1984 for the alumni magazine of
Northern Illinois University, her
alma mater, two years before her
death.
Her athletic ability caught the
attention of John Brooks, a University of Chicago long jumper, himself
headed to an Olympic berth, and he
became her mentor and coach.
He made sure I had my first pair
of good running shoes, Pickett said.
And that was it Im gone.
Soon the Tribune was taking
notice of a Negress From Englewood High School, as it dubbed

her. In 1932, the Tribune reported


that 17-year-old Tidye Pickett,
colored sprinter from the Board of
Education playground, tied the
national indoor record of :07.4 for
the 60-yard dash yesterday at the
Olympic preparatory track meet in
the Naval armory.
That achievement earned Pickett
an invitation to the 1932 Olympics in
Los Angeles. Under the headline
Chicago Girl in Olympics, the
Chicago Defender, a black newspaper, called her the ace dash star
on the board of education playgrounds track team.
But her joy was tempered by the
realization that some athletes resented having Pickett and Louise
Stokes, another black sprinter, as
teammates. Among them was Mildred Babe Didrikson, the most
celebrated female athlete of the day.
That big girl from Texas, who
won so many medals, just plain
didnt like me, Pickett recalled
much later. I suppose I shouldnt
say anything because shes at peace
now, I hope. But it was prejudice
pure and simple.
On the teams train ride west,
Didrikson poured water on Pickett
and Stokes as they were sleeping in
their bunks.
When the team paused in Denver,
other members were treated royally
in a posh hotel. They did media
appearances and were honored with
a banquet in the hotel ballroom.
Pickett and Stokes were not invited.
All the other girls had private
rooms, went to the banquet, were
interviewed by reporters, Pickett
told the alumni magazines reporter.
Louise and I shared a room in the
attic and ate our dinners upstairs on
trays.
In Los Angeles, Pickett and
Stokes were expected to be members of a 4 x 100 relay team. But at
the last minute, two white runners
took their places. When word of the

decision leaked out, the Chicago


Defender cried foul under the headline Tidye Pickett May Lose Olympic Spot.
Lily-whiteism, a thing more
pronounced than anything else
around here on the eve of the games,
threatened to oust Tidye Pickett and
Louise Stokes from participating
and put in their places two girls who
did not qualify, the Defenders
correspondent reported. The injustice of the move is being placarded by track followers out here
but to no avail, for unless Avery
Brundage rules otherwise, Misses
Pickett and Stokes will not run on
the team.
Brundage, longtime head of the
U.S. Olympic Committee, didnt
intervene. The NAACP sent a telegram urging that the black runners
be given fair treatment, but the
group got no response.
So Pickett went home with nothing to show for having been on an
Olympic team. Half a century afterward, she was still convinced that
she and Stokes should have been in
that race, even though their replacements helped the team win a gold
medal.
But times were different then,
she said in the alumni interview.
Some people didnt want to admit
we were better runners.
Back in Chicago, Pickett started
preparing for the next Olympics,
scheduled to take place in Berlin
four years later. She added new
events to her repertoire. In her 1934
debut as a hurdler, she missed winning by inches. The Defender noted:
Miss Picketts performance was
very impressive not only because
the winner is the holder of the
American record but also because
Miss Picket had run a heat, semifinal and final in the 50-meter dash,
and a heat in the hurdles all within a
half-hour.
The following year, Pickett was
part of a Chicago team that set a
Canadian record for the 400-yard
relay. The Defender proudly noted
that she was the only colored girl
on the entire Chicago Park District
team.
Given her newfound versatility,
Pickett was scheduled to compete at
the Berlin Olympics in the hurdles, a
relay and the 100-meter dash. She

worried most about the hurdles,


having acquired a bad habit of letting her trailing foot catch the top of
the hurdle. That was less of a problem in the U.S., where the hurdles
were set to fall over when hit so a
runner could keep on going. But in
Berlin, the hurdles were set to remain upright on impact.
Fellow Olympians Jesse Owens
and Ralph Metcalfe, a Chicagoan,
tried to coach her out of her trailingfoot habit. But in the semifinals,
Picketts foot caught the hurdle and
was broken. She couldnt compete
in the other events.
Owens and Metcalfe won medals
and, being black, famously disproved Hitlers racial theories in his
own capital. But Picketts role in
breaking a racial barrier was largely
forgotten. She was relegated to a
line in record books noting that she
had been on two Olympic teams and
appeared in one event.
With her athletic career over, she
went to college and became a teacher in East Chicago Heights, then
served as a principal there for many
years. Upon her retirement in 1980,
an elementary school was named
for her. Its now gone.
When the Olympics returned to
Los Angeles in 1984, Mayor Tom
Bradley invited Pickett to be his
guest of honor. But, in poor health,
Pickett couldnt make the trip and
instead she watched the Games on
television.
What did she think, seeing black
women athletes capitalizing on her
breakthrough? What did she experience when Valerie Ann BriscoHooks, a black woman, won three
gold medals? One was for the relay
event Pickett had expected to take
part in 48 years earlier.
Was it a feeling of pride, maybe
with a tincture of regret? When a
Tribune reporter asked, all Pickett
would say was, Theyve come a
long way.

SCOTT STANTIS

Omran, 5, the face of Aleppos misery


and Americas inertia
Obama should have taken Syria seriously around the time this boy was born
More than broken buildings and twisted rebar, more than images of Su-34
bombers and pickup trucks toting soldiers armed with AK-47s, the face of
Omran Daqneesh, 5, tells the story of
Aleppo.
In a photo taken after an airstrike hit
his apartment building Wednesday, the
dust-covered boy sits in an ambulance,
staring blankly. The left side of his face is
caked in blood. His left eye is nearly shut,
his right eye appears encircled by a large
bruise. His moppy hair is tousled in dust,
blood stains the neckline and sleeves of
his shirt. He isnt crying, he shows no
signs of being in pain. We dont know
what hes thinking, but he appears
numbed, patient even.
Omran was pulled from the rubble of

his familys apartment building. His siblings and parents were also rescued from
the building. An hour after Omran and his
family were saved, the building collapsed.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

No other wild animal in American history


has suffered the kind of deliberate, and casual, persecution we have rained down on coyotes. For a long stretch of the 20th century,
coyotes were, along with gray and red wolves,
the rare native American species designated
by the federal government for eradication. ...
(A USDA agency named) Wildlife Services
continues its pursuit, spending $140 million a
year to kill coyotes and other undesirable
animals. The agency exists to serve one constituency, a dwindling American sheep industry, for which it still sends planes and helicopters after 80,000 coyotes a year. On behalf
of our nations sheep, from 2006 to 2011 the
agency retired 512,710 coyotes. ...
Coyotes are not endangered, and they
dont need our help to survive as a species
(though recovering populations of wolves,
which are often mistaken for coyotes during
hunts, could use it).
But there is something perverse in the
government, and society, marking a species
for death, setting it outside the bounds of
even our wildlife protection laws.
We know coyotes are intelligent, social
creatures. They do not enjoy death.
Dan Flores, The New York Times
There is an assumption among many journalists and pundits that of course Hillary
Clinton is qualified, shes been around forever, she just doesnt need the relentless reporting that Trump requires. And so critical
stories about Clinton even when she said
she short-circuited in that Chris Wallace
interview on the email mess are overshadowed by the endless piling on Trump.
Many of the reporters who feel compelled
to stop Trump are undoubtedly comfortable
because all their friends feel the same way.
But they are deluding themselves if they
think that going after one candidate in a
two-candidate race is what journalism is
about.
Howard Kurtz, Fox News Politics

On Saturday, Omrans older brother died.


The same shellshocked visage can be
seen in civilians every day in Aleppo,
Syrias largest city, ravaged by five years of
civil war the span of this boys life.
Images like Omrans face remind us that
the mission in Syria isnt just about Islamic State and Assad, Iran and Russia. It is
about civilians trapped by a war that, in
places like Aleppo, has turned everyday
life into moment-to-moment survival.
Aleppo has long been ground zero in
the war between Syrian President Bashar
Assad and opposition rebels. Now its at
the center of an all-out offensive by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Assad
to drive rebels out. Syrian and Russian
fighter jets have been pounding rebelheld districts, indifferent to civilians
there. Human rights groups say theres
growing evidence that Syrian and Russian
pilots are using incendiary bombs similar
to napalm against rebel strongholds.
In April 2012, President Barack Obama

promised Syrians that he would stand by


them as they were subjected to unspeakable violence, simply for demanding their universal rights. That promise
rings hollow. Obama has largely sidestepped the plight of Aleppo and of
civilians across Syria. A halfhearted,
long-delayed effort to train and equip
Syrian rebels collapsed. Cease-fires have
come and gone. U.S.-brokered diplomacy has spun its wheels.
More recently, Secretary of State John
Kerry has been trying to cajole Putin
into reining in Assads indiscriminate
bombing, in exchange for joint U.S.Russian operations against certain opposition rebels that both sides see as terrorists. The soft-sell approach to Putin has
yielded and will yield nothing.
The Kremlin has a singular goal in
Syria: Keep Assad in power a goal
shared by Iran.
Obamas goal looks to be: Appear

engaged without doing much of anything.


Putin wont be deterred unless the
U.S. wields leverage against him. Raising
the prospect of military action against
Assad, as a group of State Department
officials suggested earlier this year,
could provide that leverage. Those officials sent a cable to Obama, urging
stronger military action against Syrian
government forces. They suggested that
could include cruise missiles and targeted airstrikes.
Thats what we mean by leverage, of a
sort Putin would comprehend. It could
entice moderate Syrian Sunnis, who
oppose Assad, to side with the West in
the fight against Islamic State.
Obama seems content to leave an
ever-worsening Syria slaughter to his
successor. Obama also will leave Syrian
civilians trapped in a conflict the president should have taken seriously around
the time Omran was born.

JUDGE NOT.

Voters, this isnt the way to fill a $188,000-a-year job


It was a scene right out of Bring
Your Kid to Work Day.
Except that the visitor who slipped
on Cook County Circuit Judge Valarie
Turners robe wasnt a kid, and wasnt
just pretending to preside over the
courtroom. Attorney Rhonda Crawford, a law clerk in the Markham
courthouse, ruled from the bench on
at least two cases Aug. 11 during
whats been described as a job shadowing session.
Word got to Chief Judge Timothy
Evans, and now Turner is assigned to
administrative duty and Crawford is
suspended without pay. The defendants in those cases will have to return
to court to appear before a real judge.
The states Judicial Inquiry Board
and the Attorney Registration and
Disciplinary Commission are no
doubt investigating, though of course
they wont say so. The Cook County
states attorney is looking into
whether any laws were broken.
Not everyone thinks this is a big
deal. Turner didnt let her friend

preside over a murder trial, after all.


One defendant was ticketed for driving without insurance, the other for
driving on a median. And Crawford
isnt just a wannabe judge, shes a
gonnabe judge. Shes unopposed in
the 1st Judicial Subcircuit race on the
Nov. 8 ballot.
But voters should have had reservations about Crawford before now. She
got a unanimous thumbs down from

a dozen local bar associations before


the March primary. Thats because
she refused to participate in the rigorous evaluations conducted by the
Chicago Council of Lawyers, the
Chicago Bar Association and others.
There are always a handful of candidates who dont seek the bar associations stamp of approval. Why?
Theyre not qualified, so they wont
get it. Or theyve been clouted onto
the ballot, so they dont need it. Or
both.
If they get past voters the first time,
theyre generally home free. Every six
years, they stand for retention. Its
been 26 years since a sitting judge
failed to get the 60 percent yes vote
required to stay on the bench. So if
you think Evans ought to just go
ahead and fire Turner for her ethical
lapse, think again. He cant.
And voters probably wont. Theyve
given judges a pass over far more
egregious behavior. In 2012, Judge
Cynthia Brim was retained even
though she was banned from the
courthouse and awaiting trial,
charged with battering a deputy sheriff outside the Daley Center. She
pleaded insanity and was found not
guilty. In 2014, the Illinois Courts
Commission removed her from the
bench.
Bar associations had recommended
a no vote for Brim in 2000, 2006
and 2012. Voters retained her every
time.
There are more than 400 judges in

Cook County. But unless you have


reason to appear before one of them
say, for a traffic ticket then you
likely know little about their fitness
for the job. You know even less about a
first-time candidate like Crawford.
Thats why the bar association ratings
are so valuable. A candidate who
ducks them doesnt deserve your vote.
Heres what we do know about
Crawford: Shes been a lawyer since
2003 and has clerked for the judges in
the Markham courthouse since 2011.
She got 47 percent of the vote in a
three-way Democratic primary, ousting the judge whod been appointed to
the vacant seat two years earlier by
the Illinois Supreme Court.
Shes following the path of her
mentor. Turner skipped the bar association screenings in 2002 and still
managed to collect 57 percent of the
primary vote, beating two others,
including an experienced and highly
respected associate judge. Republicans, as usual, didnt field a candidate. So Turner coasted through the
general election unopposed.
Voters, pay attention: This is not

the way to fill a $188,000-a-year job.


Thats what Turner makes for presiding over a municipal courtroom. Its
what Crawford, who currently earns
less than $57,000 a year, will make
once shes sworn in.
So yes, shes eager to rap that gavel.
Its a little late to wonder if shes fit to
do so.

PERSPECTIVE

MICHAEL WILLIAMSON/THE WASHINGTON POST

Colin Powell, left, and John McLaughlin chat at a book party for Powell. McLaughlin, the creator and host of the television show The McLaughlin Group, died Tuesday.

John McLaughlins final bye-bye


Clarence Page

Back in the early 1990s, when our son


was 4 years old and accustomed to seeing
his dad on a certain Washington-based
public television talk show, hed annoy us
by skipping through the house singing,
Bye-bye! Bye-bye!
John McLaughlin, creator and host of
The McLaughlin Group, was delighted
to hear that news. Watch out, Clarence,
he said in his professorial bellow. Im
subverting a new generation.
Father John, as a few of us regulars on
his news panel sometimes called him
backstage, has uttered his last bye-bye.
The former Roman Catholic priest who
became an aide to President Richard
Nixon and later pioneered a pugilistic style
of political punditry, died Tuesday at his
home in Washington. He was 89.
I was fortunate enough to be part of the
Group for 28 of its 34 years on the air.
McLaughlin invited me to join the
panel, he told me later, on the recommendation of another visionary broadcaster, William McCarter, the Chicago public
TV and radio chief who brought the show

to PBS in 1982. McCarter died in 2011.


My biggest regret when I heard of McLaughlins death was my own failure to
thank him for the changes his program
have brought to my life, let alone his influence on the way politics are discussed on
television.
Before the Group came along, political
talk shows tended to be polite interrogations of politicians, authors and other
newsmakers. McLaughlin changed that.
He bypassed the newsmakers to let us
commentators argue about the newsmakers.
He further enlivened the conversation
by giving his panelists too many topics and
too little time to make our points without
raising our voices and talking over one
another.
And there were his unique McLaughlinisms. He opened the show by plunging
directly into Issue one!
He headlined topics with festive labels
like Political Potpourri! and halted responses in midsentence with a resounding
Wrong!
He forced us to compress complexities
into a tidy scale of zero-to-10, zero being
absolute impossibility and 10 being metaphysical certitude.
And he branded his distinguished panel
with such nicknames as Freddy the Beadle Barnes, now at The Weekly Standard;
Jack Germondo Germond, the late Balti-

more Sun columnist; and Eleanor Youre


Swell-a-nor Clift, now with The Daily
Beast.
We knew we had entered pop culture
when the show was lampooned on Saturday Night Live, once with Dana Carvey
playing a spot-on McLaughlin and another
with McLaughlin playing himself almost as well as Carvey did, I later joked.
I missed out on the SNL spoof, but I
was included in one of Mad magazines
cartoon depictions of the Group in a
late-1990s edition, enabling me to score
some rare cool points with my sons fifthgrade classmates. Priceless.
The show did have its critics. Chicago
Tribune columnist Mike Royko, another
master of nicknames, called it the
McGoofy Group. Germond called it TV
at its worst and insisted he was only
sticking around to pay for his daughters
medical school tuition. My grandmother
simply called it the shouting show.
Sounds about right.
A more scholarly critic is best-selling
author Deborah Tannen, a Georgetown
University linguistics professor. In her
1998 book The Argument Culture: Stopping Americas War of Words, she includes The McLaughlin Group among
media that have promoted agonism,
forms of ritualized fighting that use words
instead of fists or weapons.
When the belief that watching fights

can be fun enters our public discourse,


she said in an email exchange, there is a
degradation of information. Landing a
good and entertaining blow becomes
more important than getting the facts
right, she said, or getting useful information across.
Donald Trump used that aesthetic in his
TV show, The Apprentice, with his belligerent, entertaining, Youre fired!
Tannen said, and in his Republican presidential candidacy that represents the
inevitable result of the merging and
confusing of information and entertainment.
Could the Group have played a role in
the rise of Trump? That should give all of
us pause.
Yet the worst sin in our business, besides plagiarism and inaccuracies, is to be
boring. If McLaughlins Group helped to
make todays complicated news and issues
a little easier for the public to digest, I hear
it encouraged quite a few to read newspapers too.
For all that and more, Ill miss you,
John. Bye-bye!

Citizens should vote for Donald Trump.


Its pretty clear that the establishment is
going all out against him. It is throwing the
kitchen sink and anything else it can
throw at him. Attack, discredit and
accuse Trump of anything and everything.
Magnify any remarks that can be used
against him, twist them and condemn
Trump vociferously to the public. The
establishment is purposely trying to turn
the public against Trump.
Hillary Clinton cannot run on her
record. Its abysmal. Further, the Democratic platform is the most liberal platform
in the history of the party. The Democrats
and establishment Republicans have to
attack Trump in order to try and take him
out. That way, they place Clinton into the
presidency and continue their dismantling
of this nation. Trump is not an elitist. Hes
not one of them. Trump is for the people.
Trump is a patriot.
Our military is in shambles. Our economy is on exceptionally thin ice. Our immigration laws are not being properly
enforced. Our Muslim immigration policies defy logic. Morality has sunk to new
levels. If Clinton is elected, it will be continuation of these same detrimental policies, and perhaps even worse.

Trump is not politically correct. In so


many ways, this is used against him. Even
so, Trump is the much better choice. Hes
doing this for his nation and the American
people. Hes doing this because he loves
America. Vote for Trump.
Michael Imhof, Aurora

Reality is knocking

Its one thing to be politically incorrect.


People can disagree. Thats democracy.
But, its another thing to start your
mouth moving before engaging your brain.
That isnt being politically anything. Its
not democracy. Thats just childishness.
Ive watched kids, when being criticized,
blame others instead of owning up to their
own behavior. Thats pretty normal. Most
outgrow it. Fortunately, kids arent allowed
to run the government and they
shouldnt be, regardless of their ages.
Another technique kids use is to put
together a straw man (or woman) who
bears no resemblance to reality, then tear it
apart. All that demonstrates is an ability to
defeat a silly fantasy. I like to say that reality is the escape for those who can no longer
deal with their fantasies. Its time to move
on.
Our elections arent reality TV. They
arent game shows. They arent popularity
contests. Instead, they decide our future.
And our future is too important to be distracted by these childish diversions. Id like
to see us get on with discussing the real
issues and whats to become of our nation.
The entertainment time is well over.

Famine gnaws at northeast Nigeria
Region left reeling
amid brutal raids
by Boko Haram
By Aminu Abubakar
and Robyn Dixon
Los Angeles Times

KANO, Nigeria The


watermelons lay fat and
green on Umar Bates farm,
almost ready for harvest. He
would need a tractor-trailer
just to get his crop to
market.
Musa Jabbis 400 cows
wandered the plains, growing plump as they grazed.
Abubakar Gamandi, a fisherman on Lake Chad, had
smoked and stored a rich
harvest of fish, ready to sell.
Then, it all went wrong.
Northeastern Nigeria is
now close to famine after
nearly two years of brutal
interference from Boko
Haram, the Nigerian terrorist group that has systematically plundered and starved
those who live here in a
relentless scorched-earth
campaign.
Nearly 50,000 children
will die of starvation if they
dont get food soon and
nearly 250,000 more are
severely malnourished in
Borno state, according to
UNICEF. There are 4.4 million people affected by the
crisis, half in areas inaccessible to humanitarian agencies.
The story of what happened to Bate, Jabbi and
Gamandi and the others
who helped feed those who
live here is part of a wider
mosaic of terror and deprivation in northeastern Nigeria, where 1.4 million people have fled their homes
because of Boko Haram, the
Islamic State affiliate in
West Africa. The group is
accused of kidnapping
women and girls, sacking

entire villages and slaying


residents indiscriminately.
The land here is flat with
scrubby trees; the towns
ramshackle and dusty.
Black plastic bags from local
markets skitter across the
landscape like alien tumbleweeds. But on the shores of
Lake Chad the soil is so
fertile and the underground
water so abundant that
farmers can irrigate and
grow their crops yearround. The region was once
one of Nigerias breadbaskets.
Bate, who heads the
farmers union in Doron
Baga on Lake Chad, aban-

doned his watermelons


early last year when Boko
Haram attacked the town.
We lost our farmlands
and produce to Boko
Haram and (were) reduced
to a life of begging. We left
our produce on the farm, in
silos and stores in the market, Bate said. But all that
is gone.
He now lives in a camp
for displaced people near
Maiduguri, the Borno state
capital.
Boko Harams assault on
Doron Baga, Baga and other
nearby towns was staggering. Nobody counted the
bodies, but some estimates

suggest that 2,000 people


were killed. The two towns
were nearly wiped from the
map. Satellite images show
3,700 houses were destroyed.
Food supplies were
looted, markets sacked, cattle stolen or killed and
farmers, fishers and herders
driven away. All 280 rural
food markets in Borno state
were closed, according to
Mohammed Rijiya, the
president of the state chamber of commerce.
Bate said 250 of the 7,520
farmers in the Doron Baga
farmers union have died in
the past two years because

of the deprivation inflicted


by Boko Harams attacks.
Several months earlier,
Gamandi said Boko Haram
stopped a convoy of Lake
Chad fishermen near Doron
Baga, slitting their throats,
tying them up and heaving
their bodies into the water.
The lake is now brimming with fish, but we dare
not go back and harvest it
because of fear of Boko
Haram attack, said Gamandi, the fisherman who heads
the Borno fishermens
union.
Jabbi, the herder, has
been left with just 52 of his
400 cattle. Like other herd-

Staff who stuck by


president since his
start face finish line
By Michael A. Memoli

Washington Bureau

EDGARTOWN, Mass.
Yohannes Abraham was a
new college graduate driving a top member of Barack
Obamas first presidential
campaign to visit Iowa
churches on a snowy day in
Des Moines when he got
lost.
Abraham was too embarrassed to tell his passenger.
But, after they passed the
same gas station a third
time, the VIP spoke up.
Maybe it was time to ask
for directions, Valerie Jarrett politely suggested.
Abraham had no idea
that day in 2007 how close
Jarrett, now a constant
presence in the Oval Office,
was to the future president.
But he and Jarrett formed a
connection then that continues: Now, he is her chief
of staff at the White House.
Abraham is one of dozens of Obama lifers

aides and advisers to the


president inspired by an
underdog quest for history
who joined nearly nine
years ago as Obama
launched his candidacy and
have been with him since.
Together, they see their
durability as a tribute to
how Obama inspires both
loyalty and sacrifice from
staff in a field in which
burnout is the norm and in
which many people accept
political appointments with
an eye toward self-promotion and long-term financial
benefit.
As one lifer put it: Were
not political people. Were
Obama people.
Everyone hopes theyll
go on to be a bigger part of
smaller things, Abraham
said. But I think most of us
have a sense that this is the
biggest thing that well ever
get to be a small part of.
Jarrett said Abraham
was illustrative of many in
the early staff: passionate,
hard-working, without ego
or agenda, determined to
help recapture the true
honor of public service.
That is why so many of

she added.
Kori Schulman began
stopping by the Obama
campaign headquarters in
Chicago during college
breaks in 2008 to volunteer
on its fledgling new media

approve Myspace friend

the three questions that
changed her life in 2007:
Do you have a car? When
can you get here? Do you

Shes now a senior policy
adviser after tours in other
posts.
The lifers say their loyalty, and the institutional
knowledge theyve gained,

Thats what makes this
period of the presidency
easier, said Jen Psaki, the
White House communications director. The challenges are greater in some
ways. But when you can
build on the knowledge
you have whether its the
presidents record, the history of what hes said or
done or how he thinks
about things it helps
make you better at your

job.
Psaki, who was one of
the first staffers on Obamas 2008 campaign and
has served as a spokeswoman in the White
House, for his re-election
campaign and then at the
State Department before
returning to the White
House in her current role,
remembers her first interaction with Obama when
staffing him on a trip to
Ohio in October 2007. You

ice at a time when everyone

the campaign.

his cows on the outskirts of
Maiduguri, but there is no
food for his animals.
Boko Haram have
seized most of our herd and
killed many of our people.
They forcibly take our
young boys and ... (turn
them) into foot soldiers, he
said. There is little grazing
area left because Boko
Haram has taken over the
countryside. Any herder
who ventures afield risks
falling into the hands of
Boko Haram, who will kill
him and seize his cattle.
The Nigerian military
has driven Boko Haram out
of the major towns in the
region, but rural areas and
roads remain insecure.
Mustapha Adam of the
Kukawa Development Association, the umbrella
union of 55 trade associations in Kukawa district,
said the slayings of so many
farmers and traders by Boko
Haram would affect future
agricultural production.
We have been made
weak, he said.
According to the Famine
Early Warning Systems
Network, Nigerias northeast faces one of the worlds
most severe hunger emergencies, and the crisis is
expected to continue.
Toby Fricker, spokesman
for UNICEF, said that humanitarian access has improved as Boko Haram has
been driven out of areas of
Borno and the northeast,
but there are still 2.2 million
people who are inaccessible
to humanitarian aid workers because of poor security.

Its interesting looking
around and realizing a lot of

how we started when we
walked into the campaign
headquarters 10 years ago.
This group, like the president, is feeling particularly
nostalgic these days. Each

greater meaning. Many
have been marking a series
of lasts all year the final
State of the Union address,

the last Marthas Vineyard
getaway this month for the

Ultimately, the success of
Obamas final initiatives
rests in the hands of the 50
or so staffers who have been
with him since the beginning.
Abrahams portfolio includes some of the biggestticket, if stalled, items left
on the administrations todo list, including efforts to
pass a major Pacific trade
pact and confirm a new
Supreme Court justice. The
common experience among
many in the West Wing
dating to Obamas early
campaign days has helped
motivate them as they stare
down the finish line.
Everyone feels a sense
of urgency around the fact
that theres limited time,
Abraham said.

Heartache deepens for Aleppo boy as sibling dies

By Louisa Loveluck
The Washington Post

MAHMOUD RSLAN/GETTY-AFP

Omran Daqneeshs brother


Ali died from injuries sustained in the same airstrike.

The rescue of 5-year old


Omran Daqneesh, pulled
from the rubble of his
bombed-out
home
Wednesday in Aleppo, Syria, was broadcast around
the world, dominating front
pages and drawing tears
from television anchors.
For many, his image became a symbol, the human
cost of Syrias devastating
war illustrated by a bloodied face and mop of hair,
smothered in the dust of

what once stood as his


bedroom.
Less widely shared was
the storys postscript.
On Saturday, activists
said, Omrans older brother
Ali died from wounds sustained in the same airstrike,
launched by forces allied to
Syrian President Bashar
Assad.
Omran became the
global symbol of Aleppos
suffering but to most people he is just that a
symbol, wrote Kenan Rahmani, a Syrian activist based
in Washington. Ali is the

reality: That no story in


Syria has a happy ending.
Omrans two other siblings were injured in the
attack. As Alis father received mourners Saturday
at a temporary home in
Aleppo, doctors and activists shared images of more
children the other Omrans in an online chat
group: Abdullah, 11, who
was killed, and Aisal Hajar,
2, and Faisal Barakat, 6, who
were injured in attacks.
According to the Syrian
Observatory for Human
Rights, a Britain-based

monitoring group, over 300


civilians have been killed in
Aleppo since July 31 when a
coalition of rebel groups
broke a government siege of
districts under its control.
The battle for the city,
divided between rebels in
the east and regime forces
in the west, has become one
of the most destructive of
Syrias five-year war.
It was not clear whether
Alis death had been counted in the 168 civilians that
the observatory said had
been killed by Russian or
regime airstrikes. Another

165 have also died after


opposition shelling on the
citys government-held
western districts.
Activists said Saturday
that four children, two
women and a man were
killed in the rebel-held Old
City overnight, after an airstrike destroyed their home.
We tell our children
now that were sorry, said
Abdulkafi Alhamdo, a local
English teacher. Theyre
not American, theyre not
French. When they die, you
wont see them on the
news.

Senators face threat from within


Trump complicates
GOPs fight to hold
on to majority seats
By Lisa Mascaro

Washington Bureau

NASHUA, N.H. Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte


may be voting for Donald
Trump, but she really
doesnt like talking about it.
Unfortunately for the
New Hampshire senator
and several of her GOP
colleagues in battleground
states its a question that
keeps coming up.
Listen, Ive said what
my position is, she said at a
campaign stop in her hometown of Nashua.
Over the last month,
Ayotte, who is facing a
tough re-election battle this
fall, stood by the GOP presidential nominee despite his
attacks on the Gold Star
parents of a fallen U.S.
soldier, his suggestion that
Second Amendment people could stop Hillary Clinton from choosing Supreme
Court justices and even his
initial refusal to endorse
Ayotte herself following her
critiques of some of his
statements.
Im beating her in the
polls by a lot, Trump boasted earlier this month, saying
his support in New Hampshire was better than hers.
But thats not true anymore. Recent polls show
Ayotte trailing her Democratic rival by about 3 percentage points but put
Trump behind Clinton by
nearly double digits in the
Granite State.
Usually, a presidential
nominee is a boon to the
partys ticket, providing a
big-name draw and fundraising powerhouse whose
campaign apparatus can
swoop into a state and help
down-ballot candidates
across the finish line.
But this year, Trumps
unconventional campaign
has turned coattails into
anchors, threatening to

Ayottes position on
Trump is an artful one: She
says she is voting for the
candidate but not endorsing

Republican senator engaging in such campaign contortions.
In Florida, Sen. Marco
Rubio told the Miami Herald this week that he stands
by his past criticism of
Trump as a con man, a
remark made during the
GOP presidential primaries.
But now that Rubio is fighting for re-election in a state

nevertheless vote for his
former rival.

So far, it is not going well
for Republicans.
Polls show at least half a
dozen Republican-held
Senate seats in danger,
namely in presidential
battleground states or decidedly Democratic ones.
Many of those states
would have been problem
spots for the GOP even
without Trump at the top of
the ticket.
In addition to Illinois,
Wisconsin became a slog
for the GOP after Democrats drafted former Sen.
Russ Feingold as the challenger to Sen. Ron Johnson,
who is also supporting but
not endorsing Trump.
But even races that were
supposed to be friendlier
for incumbent Republicans
are suddenly favoring the
Democratic challengers as
Trumps numbers fall.
Toomey has been losing
ground in Pennsylvania to

Democrat Katie McGinty,


polls show, as Clinton takes
a wide lead over Trump.
In North Carolina, Republican Sen. Richard Burr
has fallen behind Democratic challenger Deborah
Ross, a former state representative.
These guys know
theyre standing on the train
tracks, said Jennifer Duffy,
who analyzes Senate races
for the nonpartisan Cook
Political Report. They just
dont know if they can jump
in time.
Some Republican senators are hoping their support is strong enough to
survive any potential drag
Trump might bring.
That may be the case for
the well-liked first-term Republican Sen. Rob Portman
in Ohio. Clinton is ahead in
polls, but she hasnt brought
the Democratic Senate candidate, former Gov. Ted
Strickland, along with her.

But generally, rather than


playing offense, Republicans are increasingly being
forced to spend resources to
defend seats that were once
safer.
Outside groups, including those aligned with the
Koch brothers and Republican operative Karl Rove,
are pouring millions of dollars into down-ballot GOP
races, believing an effort to
save Congress is the smarter
investment than Trumps
White House bid.
Dealing with Trump and
his often erratic campaign is
proving to be a delicate
challenge.
Republican campaign officials have cautioned candidates not to directly attack Trump, lest they alienate the GOP supporters
they will need. Yet, supporting him will likely drive
away moderate voters.

Sen. Mark Kirk became the

Trump: GOP has to do


better in black outreach
By Jill Colvin
Associated Press

FREDERICKSBURG,
Va. Donald Trump called
on the Republican Party to
boost its traditionally lagging outreach efforts with
black voters Saturday, as he
looks to win over minorities in the increasingly
contentious race for the
White House.
Speaking at a rally in the
critical battleground state
of Virginia, Trump declared that the GOP has to
do better and wants to do
better in its outreach to
black voters.
The declaration follows
a meeting Trump had earlier in the day with his newly
minted Hispanic advisory
board, which is working to
boost his outreach with
that demographic.
Trump has been working in recent days to boost
his appeal among AfricanAmerican voters declaring Friday that he can win
95 percent of the AfricanAmerican vote at the end of
his first term in office, if he
is elected.
Colorado state Rep. Clarice Navarro, a member of
the council who attended
the meeting, said Trump

heard the groups concerns.


Its about jobs, jobs,
jobs, and he really listened,
said Navarro, a Republican.
Ive always felt he does
care about the Latino community, and now its on us
to get him elected.
His new minority outreach efforts followed a
shake-up in his campaign
management in the face of
falling poll numbers that
quickly prompted noticeable changes to his campaigning tactics.
Meanwhile, Democratic
rival Hillary Clinton attended a fundraiser Saturday night in Nantucket,
Mass.
Libertarian presidential
candidate Gary Johnson
also campaigned Saturday
in Albuquerque, N.M.,
where he promised a balanced budget, a ban on
immigration quotas and
other fiscally conservative
but socially inclusive measures. He also pushed for
legalizing marijuana and
eliminating some taxes.
Earlier Saturday, Trump
met with the National Hispanic Advisory Council for
Trump, as it is officially
called, which will work to
help the GOP candidate
focus his message as well as

provide assistance with the


campaigns Hispanic outreach.
Polling shows Trump
lagging significantly behind Clinton among minority voters, partially due to
some of the more wayward
comments he has made
since entering the race. He
launched his campaign last
year with a speech that
accused Mexico of illegally
sending rapist and criminals across the border and
has since vowed to deport
all of the estimated 11 million people living in the
country illegally.
Republican National
Committee Chairman
Reince Priebus said in a
statement that the Hispanic advisory groups participation is just one component of our expansive
effort to engage the Hispanic community, and their
contributions will help us
compete for every vote in
every community all the
way through Election Day.
Trump also met Saturday with officers and
detectives in the Stafford
County Sheriffs Office in
Stafford, Va.

LOS ANGELES A
deeply divided electorate
has at least one thing in
common: Few expect big
things from the next president.
Fewer than one-third of
registered voters think Hillary Clinton or Donald
Trump would make a good
or great president, while
more are likely to see either
as being terrible in the
Oval Office, a new Pew
Research Center poll finds.
Expectations are only
slightly better for Clinton
than Trump.
Thirty-one percent said
she would be a good or
great president, 22 percent
say average, 12 percent
poor and 33 percent say
terrible.
Forty-three percent of
voters think Trump is likely
to be a terrible president,
accounting for the biggest
discrepancy between the
two candidates; only 27
percent say he would be a
great or good president.
Those figures were little
changed since a March
survey, and reflect a relative
ambivalence even among
the nominees supporters.
Fewer than one in four
Clinton or Trump supporters expect their candidate
to be a great president
while more decisively predicting the worst about the
opposing candidate: 72 percent of Trump supporters
say Clinton would be terrible, while 83 percent of
Clinton backers said that of
Trump.
Other findings from the
Pew survey otherwise align
with other recent polling
that showed a Clinton advantage buoyed by strong
support among the increasingly diverse electorate, a
significant gender gap and
Clintons stronger showing
among college-educated
white voters than other
recent Democratic nomi-

nees have enjoyed.


Offered a choice among
four candidates, including
the Libertarian and Green
Party nominees, 41 percent
of registered voters said
they would vote for Clinton
while 37 percent backed
Trump.
Former New Mexico
Gov. Gary Johnson, the
Libertarian candidate,
earned 10 percent while Jill
Stein, the Green Party nominee, got 4 percent.
Clintons four-point lead
among registered voters is
just beyond the surveys
2.8-percentage-point margin of error, and represents
a tighter race than in midJune when Clinton led
Trump by nine points.
But beyond views of the
candidates, the poll demonstrates vastly different
views of the state of the
nation and its most pressing challenges.
Clinton supporters, for
instance, were far more
likely (59 percent) to say
that life was better for
people like them now than
50 years ago than Trump
supporters (just 11percent).
While two-thirds of
Trump supporters said immigration was a big problem for the country, 17% of
Clinton voters said the
same. Another wide disparity existed in views of
whether the gap between
rich and poor represented a
big problem: 70 percent of

Clinton supporters said it


was, compared with 31 percent of Trump supporters.
The only issue where
views aligned was on relations between racial and
ethnic groups. Forty-seven
percent of all voters said it
was a very big problem, a
jump from 29 percent who
said that in 2007 when the
question was last asked,
and ranked it ahead of
terrorism, immigration and
the environment.
The survey as a whole
painted a pessimistic view
of the future beyond the
candidates.
Half of all voters said the
future for the next generation of Americans would be
worse than the present,
while just one in four voters
said better.
Even Clinton voters had
only a narrowly optimistic
view of this question (38
percent better vs. 30 percent worse).
Pews data found a dramatic turnaround in the
view of free trade agreements among Republican
voters. Fifty-five percent of
Republican and Republican-leaning voters said in
2014 that free trade agreements have been good for
the U.S.
But now just 32 percent
say that, while 61 percent
now say the trade deals
have been bad for the U.S.

Omahas fix for potholes is messy one: Dirt roads


By Margery A. Beck
and Scott
McFetridge
Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. For


miles and miles Omaha
stretches on, one tidy, suburban-style neighborhood
after another filled with
modern low-slung houses
set on spacious lawns with
towering oaks and elms.
Its a model of comfortable mid-American living,
with one unusual exception: Thanks to a quirk in
how Omaha developed,
about 300 miles of streets in
these nice neighborhoods
are pitted with potholes
almost big enough to swallow an SUV.
The bad roads have been
both an anomaly and a
source of complaints for
years. But recently, theyve
become the center of a
mini-crisis after local officials began dispatching
crews to tear up the asphalt
in the neighborhoods and
turn the streets back into
dirt roads, much like what
existed in the citys frontier
days.
The sudden appearance
of miles of dirt road in the
midst of urban Omaha has
prompted angry protests by
residents and showcased a
conflict over the public
services homeowners
should expect when a modern city outgrows some of
its old real estate agree-

NATI HARNIK/AP

Officials in Omaha, Neb., recently began dispatching crews to tear up asphalt and turn
streets back into dirt roads.

ments.
No letter, no notice. We
just came home on a Tuesday, and our street was
ground up, said Joe Skradski, a dentist who lives on
113th Street, where a dozen
$400,000-and-up houses
now line a dirt path. Since
then, its been nothing short
of a nightmare.
Nearly every U.S. city
faces a backlog of needed
roadwork as streets built
decades ago wear out, but
the situation is especially
vexing in Omaha, a city of
435,000 people with 4,800
miles of road and not

enough tax revenue to


maintain them.
Decades ago, a number of
developers sought permission to lay down asphalt
roads rather than longerlasting concrete in several
sections in the middle of
town, and to skip installing
curbs and gutters preferred
by the city. The city agreed,
with the understanding
that homeowners be responsible for occasional repaving. Some substandard
roads also were in areas
once outside the city but
that were later annexed.
For years, the arrange-

ment held up. But as the


roads began to age and
crumble, and as new residents replaced the original
homeowners, resentment
intensified about a city government that maintained
some neighborhoods while
ignoring others.
Meetings between city
officials and residents of the
affected neighborhoods,
which include about 10,000
houses, havent resolved the
problem.
This is insanity, declared City Council member Chris Jerram at one
heated council session ear-

lier this year.


Austin Rowser, Omaha
streets superintendent, said
the citys position is a
matter of fairness. Some
property owners paid for
better streets and a minority didnt.
He added that the city
simply cant afford the
roughly $300 million
needed to fix all the substandard streets.
That doesnt fly with
residents who say that dirt
roads or crumbling pavement are unworthy of a
well-off community with a
growing population, a tiny
unemployment rate and
four Fortune 500 companies.
Well, gee whiz, if Im
going to be on a gravel
street, I dont think they
should increase my taxes,
said resident Terry Hexum,
referring to a recent tax
assessment hike that would
generate revenue for the
entire city. He helped organize a protest meeting
attended by 200 people
about the street dispute.
Officials have suggested
that neighbors create a district to finance repaving, or
the more expensive option
of rebuilding the streets to
city standards, which the
city would then maintain.
But when no agreement
was reached, city officials
dispatched its bulldozers,
saying dirt roads were better than deteriorating as-

phalt.
Signs went up denouncing Mayor Jean Stothert
and other city officials, and
one businessman filed a
lawsuit that sought to force
the city to repave the road
in front of his $1.8 million
home.
Last month, Stothert announced the city would
stop the dirt road conversions, would try to set
aside more money for repairs and offered to pay half
the cost of repaving three
stretches of roads that had
prompted some of the heated complaints. It was
enough to get businessman
Bruce Simon to drop his
lawsuit, but no one has
come up with a funding
plan that would fix all the
rough road.
According to urban planners, the dispute is a case
study in how short-term
deals that cities make about
seemingly minor issues can
backfire when the cities and
circumstances change.
Dan Piatkowski, an assistant professor of regional
planning at the University
of Nebraska, said the dispute is also forcing residents to think about what
they get from government.
This is especially useful, he
said, in a conservative state
like Nebraska. Many conservatives believe smaller
government is better, but
we still want our roads to
function, he said.

Kerry to talk conflicts on


visit to Africa, Saudi Arabia
By Tom Odula
Associated Press

NAIROBI, Kenya Secretary of State John Kerry


will be in Africa on Monday
for talks in Kenya and
Nigeria on countering terrorism before visiting Saudi
Arabia to discuss the conflict in Yemen.
Kerry is set to first meet
with Kenyan President
Uhuru Kenyatta on regional issues including the
upheaval in neighboring
South Sudan and security
in Somalia, where homegrown, al-Qaida-linked extremist group al-Shabab
continues to launch deadly
attacks in the capital.
On his last visit to the
region in May 2015, Kerry
became the first secretary
of state to set foot in
Somalia two decades after
dead U.S. soldiers were
dragged through the streets
of its capital, Mogadishu. It
was a symbolic visit to
show support for the Horn
of Africa nations fledgling
government.
Somalia faces key parliamentary elections next
month and a presidential
election in October. The
country has been trying to
rebuild after establishing
its first functioning central

Yemenis show support for rebels, ally


SANAA, Yemen Hundreds of thousands of Yemenis
marched Saturday in support of Shiite Houthi rebels and
their ally, former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
The march in the rebel-held capital, Sanaa, was in
support of a new combined governing council that the
rebels and Saleh announced late last month but which
was immediately rejected by the internationally recognized government and the United Nations. Saleh was
forced to step down in 2012 amid Arab Spring protests
after more than three decades in power.
Yemens war pits troops and militiamen loyal to the
government, backed by a Saudi-led coalition, against the
Shiite rebels and Saleh loyalists. The Houthis captured
Sanaa in 2014, and the U.S.-backed coalition began its
offensive against them in March 2015.

government since 1991.


Kerry on Tuesday and
Wednesday is then scheduled to visit the cities of
Sokoto and Abuja in Nigeria, Africas most populous
nation with about 160 million people and one of its
largest economies.
He will meet with President Muhammadu Buhari
on the oil-rich countrys
worsening economy and its
efforts to fight corruption.
Kerry also will meet with
leaders from the countrys
largely Muslim north,
where extremist group Boko Haram was formed several years ago and continues to carry out attacks.
Boko Haram appears to

be snarled in a power struggle after a new leader was


announced by the Islamic
State group earlier this
month and the longtime
leader protested.
Kerry then is set to head
to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday and Thursday for discussions on the conflict in
neighboring Yemen.
The talks will include
Saudi leaders, counterparts
from Britain and the regional Gulf Cooperation
Council and the United
Nations special envoy for
Yemen.
The Yemeni conflict has
pushed the Arab worlds
poorest nation to the brink
of famine.

Many U.S. medical


schools are seeing a surge
in the number of people
leaving their bodies to science, a trend attributed to
rising funeral costs and
growing acceptance of a
practice long seen by some
as ghoulish.
The increase has been a
boon to medical students
and researchers, who dissect cadavers in anatomy
class or use them to practice surgical techniques or
test new devices and procedures.
Not too long ago, it was
taboo. Now we have thousands of registered donors,
said Mark Zavoyna, operations manager for
Georgetown Universitys
body donation program.
The University of Minnesota said it received more
than 550 cadavers last year,
up from 170 in 2002. The
University at Buffalo got
almost 600 last year, a
doubling over the past decade. Others that reported
increases include Duke
University, the University
of Arizona and state agencies in Maryland and Virginia. Science Care, a national tissue bank, now
receives 5,000 cadavers a
year, twice as many as in
2010.
One reason is that religious objections to dissection and cremation hold
less sway today than in the
past, said Ronn Wade, director of Marylands State
Anatomy Board.
Also, bodies donated to
medical schools are cremated once they are no
longer needed, and the
remains are often returned
to their families at no expense. As of 2014, a traditional burial cost around
$7,200, an increase of 29
percent from a decade earlier, according to the National Funeral Directors
Association.
Funerals are expensive.

ANDY CLAYTON-KING/AP

Jean Larson, left, with a University of Minnesota official,


called her husbands body donation an act of generosity.

That certainly has something to do with it, Zavoyna said. Of course, it almost has this snowball effect, where you get five
people to donate, and then
their families tell another
25 people.
Milton Larson, a longtime science teacher who
was stricken with Parkinsons disease and died in
2014 at age 82, left his body
to the University of Minnesota in what his wife, Jean,
of Falcon Heights, Minn.,
called his last act of teaching and generosity.
But she initially struggled with his decision and
said she tries not to think
about the details of dissection.
To put it quite bluntly,
you have to realize that
they are going to cut the
body of your loved one
apart. Thats hard, she
said. Still, she plans to
donate her body too: This
is the most generous donation we can make.
Cadavers are being used
for an expanding range of
research and training, including the testing of prosthetics and new robotic
surgery techniques. Medical researchers are also
increasingly relying on human bodies instead of animals.
The uses that we can

bring to these very precious


gifts have really escalated,
said John Tomaszewski,
chief of Buffalos pathology
and anatomical sciences
department.
Some parts of the country still struggle with cadaver shortages. A state
agency in Illinois has been
receiving only 500 donations a year for eight medical schools, down from 750
in the 1980s. Although
many programs shun advertising, the Anatomical
Gift Association of Illinois
is buying more newspaper
ads to try to boost numbers.
When donations fall
short, Duke and other
schools turn to private suppliers that obtain cadavers
through donation, often in
other countries. In some
states, schools can obtain
bodies that go unclaimed
by their families.
Some medical schools
have experimented with
alternatives to real bodies,
such as rubber or plastic
cadavers, or virtual anatomy courses taught on computers.
But theres no substitute for the real thing because ultimately these people are going to be taking
care of patients, said Michael Zenn, a surgery professor at Duke. Its just a
priceless donation.

Big-eyed creature looks more like a toy


By Alina Hartounian
Associated Press

A team of scientists and


technicians scanning the
rocky ocean floor off Southern California couldnt contain its excitement when
members spotted a brightpurple, googly-eyed stubby
squid.
They let out a collective
whoa on video posted on
the Exploration Vessel Nautilus Facebook page as a
camera on a remote-operated vehicle came across
the iridescent cephalopod

with giant round eyes.


Then the jokes started.
He has weird eyes! said
one enthusiastic observer.
Get close! Get close!
urges another.
One suggested it resembled a childs dropped toy,
and another said the creatures eyes appeared to be
painted on.
It looks so fake, says
one member of the team.
The creature looks like a
cross between a squid and
an octopus but is closely
related to a cuttlefish, according to the Nautilus Live

website.
The find could be more
than just bemusing.
In addition to the googly-eyed cuteness, there is
one thing biologically interesting about this observation, said cephalopod expert Michael Vecchione of
the Smithsonian Institution.
The creature could be a
new species, he wrote in an
email to the expedition.
It was spotted at nearly
3,000 feet deep, which is
unusual, but not unheard of.
But, on top of that, the

stubby squid didnt have


chromatophores, cells that
allow it to change color, as
members of its species do,
Vecchione said.
The question cant be
answered because this particular stubby squid remains deep in the ocean, out
of scientists reach.
The team spends hours
scanning the barren oceanscape, then to come across
something adorable like
that its a real treat,
Exploration Vessel Nautilus
spokeswoman Susan Poulton said.

The man behind Piltdown Man


Investigators:
Missing link
hoax work of 1
By Sarah Kaplan

The Washington Post

When Piltdown Man was


unveiled before a meeting
of London geologists in
1912, he was heralded as
paleoanthropologys missing link, the long-sought
transitional form between
modern humans and our
great ape ancestor. He had a
smallish skull, a chimp-like
jaw, and a mixture of primitive and modern teeth to
boot.
Plus, he was a local; to
this gathering of Brits, it
would have seemed completely right and proper that
humankind got its start just
down the road in Sussex.
There was just one problem he was a fake.
In 1953, scientists at the
British Natural History Museum and University of Oxford reported that the Piltdown fossil was actually a
hodgepodge of human and
orangutan bones, none of
them more than 720 years
old. The remains had been
meticulously worn down
with a file and stained with
iron and acid to give the
appearance of age. Dental
putty was used to hold the
teeth in place.
The scientists called the
fake extraordinarily skillful, and the hoax so entirely unscrupulous and inexplicable as to find no
parallel in the history of
paleontological discovery.
But their investigation
couldnt resolve one question: Who would have done
such a thing, and why?
Writing in the journal
Royal Society Open Science,
a new team of investigators
say they have an answer.
The Piltdown forgery was
the work of one man
solicitor and amateur archaeologist Charles Dawson, who first uncovered
the remains.
Whether Dawson acted

JOHN COOKE/WIKIMEDIA COMMONS

A depiction of scientists examining the Piltdown skull in 1913. Charles Dawson stands in the back, second from the right

alone is uncertain, but his


hunger for acclaim may
have driven him to risk his
reputation and misdirect
the course of anthropology
for decades, the researchers write. The Piltdown
hoax stands as a cautionary
tale to scientists not to be
led by preconceived ideas,
but to use scientific integrity and rigor in the face of
novel discoveries.
The first mention of the
skull came in February 1912,
when Dawson sent a letter
to his friend Sir Arthur
Smith Woodward, head of
geology at the British Museum, about an exciting new
skull hed uncovered on his
land near the town of Piltdown. Just five years earlier,
German scientists had uncovered the mandible of a
600,000-year-old Homo
heidelbergensis the ancestor of Neanderthals and
modern humans.
This specimen will rival
H. heidelbergensis in solidity, Dawson promised.

Later excavations at
two Piltdown sites revealed
a jaw bone, teeth, stone
tools and a piece of carved
fossil bone deemed a cricket bat.
They also cast a cloud of
suspicion over everyone
who took part.
Whoever committed the
forgery, the consequences
were long lasting.
The belief that modern
humans evolved in Britain
persisted for another 40
years it was so ingrained
that many scientists dismissed a real archaic human fossil, the Taung Child,
when it was uncovered in
South Africa in 1924.
And the hoax weakened
the publics trust in science.
Even today, creationists
point to Piltdown Man to
justify their suspicion of
evolution.
To figure out who was
responsible, paleoanthropologist Isabelle De Groote
and more than a dozen
other researchers re-exam-

ined the Piltdown skull and


attempted to retrace how it
was made. Their techniques
DNA sequencing,
spectroscopic analysis
werent available to the scientists who exposed the
hoax in 1953 and indeed
may have seemed even
more improbable to Dawsons turn of the century
colleagues than the idea of
Piltdown Man himself.
They started their search
with the orangutan mandible. DNA sequencing indicated the jaw and all the
teeth came from the skull of
one orangutan, even a tooth
Dawson claimed to have
found at a second Piltdown
site several miles away. Its
likely that the skull was
purchased at a curiosity
shop and broken into pieces
by the forger. In addition,
tiny cavities in the teeth
were stuffed with pebbles
and covered with putty to
make them heavy indicating that the forger
knew fossil bones weigh

more than recent ones.


Studies of the human
remains were less successful; De Grootes team was
unable to extract material
from the bone for identification and dating. They
think that at least two, and
possibly three, skulls were
used to make the cranial
fossil. Though the bones
are thicker than a standard
skull, they fall within the
range of human variation,
and their thickness is probably why the forger opted to
use them.
But the overall modus
operandi of the forger was
skillful and incredibly consistent, and only one of the
20 or so people who have
been implicated in the hoax
could have achieved the
whole thing: Charles Dawson.
The story originated
with him, the authors
write. Nothing was ever
found at the site when
Dawson was not there, he is
the only known person di-

rectly associated with the


supposed finds at the second Piltdown site, the exact
whereabouts of which he
never revealed, and no further significant fossils,
mammal or human, were
discovered in the localities
after his death in 1916.
Dawson was an experienced fossil hunter (and
faker a number of his
other finds ultimately
turned out to be hoaxes)
with friends in the paleontology community and a
thorough understanding of
what a missing link fossil
ought to look like.
He would have had the
means to acquire the necessary human and orangutan
remains and the knowledge
to ensure that they were
discovered in the right
way.
A look at Dawsons letters
revealed why an apparently
successful solicitor and respected amateur scientist
would attempt such an
audacious hoax.
By age 45 hed written or
co-authored more than 50
scientific articles, but was
still waiting for recognition
as an archaeologist. In 1909,
he wrote to Smith Woodward, I have been waiting
for the big find which
never seems to come along.
He dreamed of being
elected a fellow of the Royal
Society, but was never
nominated until he announced the Piltdown discovery.
The study authors chief
criticism is reserved not for
Dawson but for the scientists who believed him.
Piltdown Man met turnof-the-century researchers
preconceived notions for
what an archaic human
fossil would look like so
they were far less skeptical
than they ought to have
been.
It stands as a cautionary
tale to scientists not to see
what they want to see, but
to remain objective and to
subject even their own findings to the strongest scientific scrutiny, De Groote
and her colleagues write.

There are certain places that guns should not be taken: a bar where you serve alcohol,
a sporting event, a federal building, a school and a courthouse.

WHERE GUNS RULE,


BANS GET SHOT DOWN
Municipalities in Texas fight to keep arms out of public buildings

By Molly Hennessy-Fiske
Los Angeles Times

HEMPSTEAD, Texas With


an AR-15-style rifle slung across
his chest and a handgun on his hip,
an angry man stepped up to
address the crowd outside this
rural county seats courthouse.
The problem, he said, was that
some officials want to keep firearms out of courthouses and other
government buildings.
Theres all these multiuse facilities that are preventing gun
owners from accessing their public services, C.J. Grisham, president of Open Carry Texas, railed
over a bullhorn on a recent Friday
as some of the 35 people assembled applauded and shouted,
We want our rights back!
As gun rights advocates have
successfully pushed for greater
access to public spaces in Texas,
some localities are pushing back,
citing safety and cost concerns
even otherwise gun-friendly officials in Hempstead.
Earlier this year, Texas surpassed a million licensed handgun
owners 1,069,706, to be exact, as
of June 30, according to the Texas
Department of Public Safety.
Thats about 4 percent of the
states 27 million residents.
New laws allow handgun owners in Texas the freedom to openly
carry (as opposed to concealed
carry), to carry more broadly on
college campuses (so-called campus carry) and to appeal handgun
bans in government offices.
A law passed last year forbids
state and local officials from posting signs restricting the concealed
carrying of handguns by lawful
permit holders. People objecting
to such signs can file complaints
with local agencies and the attorney generals office, which is
charged with investigating and
taking possible offenders to court.
Violators could face a $10,500
daily fine.
The Texas attorney generals
office has taken only one local
agency to court over the complaints in the city of Austin
and that case is pending, a spokeswoman said. The office did not
have a tally of complaints filed.
Open Carry Texas officials have
filed complaints against 63 local
entities over gun bans. The Rev.
Terry Holcomb, founder of another gun rights group, Texas Carry,
filed complaints against Hempstead population 6,400 which
posted signs at courthouse entrances warning that its a felony
to bring guns inside. He filed
similar complaints against 75
other local government entities.
Theres criminals everywhere
we go. Theres emotional trauma

A demonstrator helps hold a large banner at a rally in support of open carry gun laws in Austin, Texas.

LISA MARIE PANE/AP

C.J. Grishams Open Carry Texas


has filed complaints against 63
local entities over gun bans.

everywhere we go, Holcomb said.


... The idea that some of the most
law-abiding citizens have to leave
their gun in their car to go pay
their property taxes is ludicrous.
Theres just no good reason to do
that. I mean, we carry in the
Legislature, one of the most emotional places in the state.
Holcomb said 26 of the agencies he filed complaints against
dropped their gun bans.
But if state law prohibits such
no-guns-allowed signs, why are
governments posting them? The
answer is that another state law
bars carrying a handgun on the
premises of a government court.
Gun rights advocates say that
provision applies to courtrooms,
but officials in Hempstead and
elsewhere say it means entire
courthouses, including associated

offices, such as those for tax


assessors.
After Holcomb complained to
the attorney generals office about
Waller Countys ban, the county
struck back, suing him last month
for $100,000 in damages.
There are certain places that
guns should not be taken: a bar
where you serve alcohol, a sporting event, a federal building, a
school and a courthouse, said
Waller County Judge Trey Duhon,
the countys top executive. He
defended the lawsuit, along with
the district attorney and other
county officials.
Duhon noted that tempers
often flare at the courthouse,
where people go to resolve disputes, where you have divorces,
custody battles, child support.
The three-story Hempstead
courthouse has a single elevator, a
staircase and narrow hallways
that do not lend themselves to
having security checkpoints at
every turn, he said.
About 2,600, or 6 percent, of
county residents are licensed to
carry handguns, according to state
figures.
If people were allowed to carry
guns inside the courthouse, the
county would have to add checkpoints and hire additional bailiffs.
Even so, Duhon said, I dont think
anyone would be comfortable
serving on a murder trial jury
knowing the defendants family
members could be sitting in the
hallway with a gun.
Duhon added that he and most

local officials are gun owners, that


he believes in the Second Amendment and open carry. But inside
the courthouse, he said, it just
doesnt make sense.
On Aug. 10, the attorney generals office notified Duhon that it
had substantiated Holcombs
complaint that the law does not
allow the county to bar those
carrying handguns from the
courthouse. It gave the county 15
days to comply.
When Duhon recently contacted the Texas Association of
Counties, he learned many have
been coping with complaints
about their efforts to keep guns
out of county buildings.
You have counties that are
moving offices and making changes because theyre in fear that if
they dont theyre going to get
assessed a fine, he said. Our
county was not going to be bullied
by the attorney general into making changes if were not legally
required to do so.
Texas has seen several shootings near courthouses in recent
years, notably a prosecutor
gunned down by a justice of the
peace three years ago outside the
Kaufman County courthouse
southeast of Dallas.
But Duhon harked back even
further to 1905, when four people
were shot dead at the Hempstead
courthouse, including U.S. Rep.
John Pinckney and his brother.
The town became known as Six
Shooter Junction.
After Duhon traded barbs with

Holcomb online, he was contacted


by the FBI ahead of the recent
protest to say the agency was
investigating death threats against
Duhon, the district attorney and
other county officials.
Law enforcement advised them
to avoid the protest, which they
did.
Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis closed his office
for the day, issuing a statement
saying, We do not allow guns in
prisons, hospitals, or sporting arenas, and we should continue to
prohibit them in courthouses as
well.
Mathis said allowing guns in
the courthouse would subject
witnesses, victims, jurors, officers,
prosecutors and judges to an
unnecessary and unjustifiable
risk.
He said those being investigated for making death threats
against him are some of the
individuals who would be allowed
to carry firearms in courthouses
under this wrong interpretation of
the law. This fact alone highlights
the importance of courthouse
security and the recognition of the
heightened emotions and security
considerations involved.
Outside the courthouse during
the recent protest, wearing his
handgun in a Texas Carry-embossed leather holster as sheriffs
deputies looked on, Holcomb
called the lawsuit against him an
attempt to silence him. He vowed
to keep fighting, not just here but
in bigger cities, such as nearby
Houston in Harris County, which
boasts the highest number of
licensed handgun owners of any
county in the state.
You need to rise up and stand
up against this oppression! Holcomb shouted to the crowd.
Sitting nearby, local retiree Pat
Bruegger said she came to support
Holcomb.
We should be able to disagree
with the government without
getting sued, she said. You cant
say you can have a weapon but not
here.
Walking past her, Nickleberry
Lilly disagreed.
What if I dont like the decision of the court? What if I get
angry? the rancher said.
Lilly, who is African-American,
also worried about racial attacks
in a town where Sandra Blands
death at the local jail blocks away
from the courthouse sparked
heated protests and drew national
attention last year.
Theres a lot of places guns
belong: hunting, protection in

Congo electoral commission:


Vote may have to be delayed
KINSHASA, Congo
Voter registration for
Congos November presidential election will not be
completed until next year,
the electoral commission
president said Saturday,
suggesting that the vote
should be delayed.
Independent National
Electoral Commission
President
Corneille
Nangaa said a voter register cannot be ready until
July 2017 because of logistical problems in registering over 30 million

voters, and because of a


lack of funds.
The opposition has expressed concern that
President Joseph Kabila
would delay the Nov. 27
elections in order to remain in power beyond his
mandate, which ends in
December. Kabila is barred
from running for a third
term under Congos Constitution.
The constitutional court
in May said that he should
remain in office until a new
leader is elected.

Assessment tally: 105 homes, 213


structures leveled in Calif. blaze
SAN BERNARDINO,
Calif. Officials estimate
that at least 105 residences
and 213 outbuildings have
been destroyed in the massive fire that burned
through Southern California mountain communities this week and was still
smoldering Saturday.
Those numbers could
rise as damage assessment
teams pore through the
aftermath of the blaze
about 60 miles east of
downtown Los Angeles,

Fire Marshal Mike Horton


of the San Bernardino
County Fire Department
said. Drought conditions in
California have left plenty
of fuel for wildfires.
The fire sparked Tuesday was 68 percent contained. Assessment crews
continued to sift through
burned regions to tally the
damage
No deaths have been
reported and the cause of
the fire was under investigation.

Former Somalia PM who lost


U.S. court battle dies in Virginia
MOGADISHU, Somalia
Former Somali Prime
Minister Mohamed Ali Samantar, who lost a long
U.S. court battle over accusations of killing and torture, has died, President
Hassan Sheikh Mohamud
announced Saturday.
Samantar, 85, died in
Virginia. He served
throughout the 1980s
under dictator Siad Barre
before the regime was
overthrown in 1991 by warlords.

Samantar later moved to


the U.S., where he was
sued by seven Somalis who
accused him of ordering
the killings and torture of
members of the minority
Isaaq clan.
After an eight-year legal
battle that reached the U.S.
Supreme Court, which rejected the argument that
Samantar enjoyed legal
immunity as a former foreign official, a judge in
2012 awarded $21 million
to his accusers.

22 killed, 94 hurt in wedding


attack in Turkey, officials say
ANKARA, Turkey A
bomb attack targeting an
outdoor wedding party in
southeastern Turkey on
Saturday killed at least 22
people and wounded 94
others, authorities said.
Deputy Prime Minister
Mehmet Simsek said the
barbaric attack in the
city of Gaziantep, near the
border with Syria, appeared to be a suicide
bombing. Other officials
said it could have been the
carried out by either Kurdish militants or Islamic
State group extremists.
Turkey has been rocked
by attacks in the past year
that have either been
claimed by Kurdish mili-

tants linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers


Party, known by its acronym PKK, or blamed on
the Islamic State, also
known as ISIS.
In June, suspected Islamic State militants attacked Istanbuls main airport, killing 44 people.
The attack Saturday
comes as the country is still
reeling from last months
failed coup attempt that
the government has
blamed on U.S.-based
Muslim cleric Fethullah
Gulen and his followers.
Earlier Saturday, Turkish Prime Minister Binali
Yildirim ruled out a new
peace initiative with the

countrys Kurdish rebels.


There is no (new
peace) process, Yildirim
said. We would not enter
into a dialogue with a
terror organization.
He also said his country
is willing to accept a role
for Syrian President Bashar Assad during a transitional period but insisted
he has no place in Syrias
future. The comments
came after Assads forces
began attacking Kurdish
positions last week, leading some Kurdish officials
to speculate that a SyrianTurkish rapprochement
was underway at the expense of Kurdish autonomy in northern Syria.

China, Myanmar vow closer ties on Suu Kyis visit


BEIJING China and
Myanmar said Saturday
that they have pledged to
forge closer ties as blood
brothers, as Myanmar
leader Aung San Suu Kyi
prepared to wrap up a visit
to Beijing, her first diplomatic trip since taking
power in March.
The countries also said

they would strengthen


trade and cooperation on
issues along the border,
where fighting between
Myanmar government
forces and rebels have occasionally spilled over.
China has been on a
diplomatic charm offensive in the past year toward
its fast-growing neighbor,

while Myanmar has shown


a willingness to embrace
its top trading partner and
major investor.
The five-day visit, concluding Sunday, is the second trip to China in 15
months for Suu Kyi, who
was imprisoned for over a
decade by Myanmars military junta.

DALLAS Most restrictions on flights between the U.S. and Mexico


will be lifted Sunday, a
change expected to bring
more options and possibly
lower prices for travelers.
American, Delta and
Southwest have already
announced that they will
offer new flights later this
year. United is watching
the demand and will respond accordingly, a
spokesman said.
The United States and
Mexico agreed in December to open their aviation
markets to each others
carriers. Rules that had
generally limited two or
three airlines from each
country to a particular
route will go away.
Airlines on both sides of
the border will be able to
fly whatever routes they
want as often as they want
and set their own prices,
said Thomas Engle, the
State Departments deputy
assistant secretary for
transportation.

Human scum: North


Korea said Saturday that
Thae Yong Ho, formerly a
minister at the North Korean Embassy in London,
is a criminal and human
scum in its first response
to the diplomats recent
defection. The official Korean Central News Agency
also accused Seoul of using
the defection to insult
North Koreas leaders.

landing in 2019. The veteran began his trek in
California on Oct. 7, 2013,
and finished in Georgia.

OBITUARIES
BARRY SULLIVAN 1930-2016

Banking executive played


prominent civic role
By Bob Goldsborough
Chicago Tribune

Barry Sullivan was CEO


of First Chicago Corp., the
holding company for First
National Bank of Chicago, in
the 1980s and early 1990s,
leading the bank during
recessions and periods of
tumult in the banking industry while also assuming a
prominent role in Chicagos
civic life.
On Sullivans watch, First
Chicago acquired the fifthlargest bank in Chicago,
American National Bank
and Trust Co., which rose to
become Chicagos largest
banking concern. Sullivans
ultimate score card, however, reflected mixed results
during his tenure, including
credit problems, over-leveraged buyouts and allegations of lax management
oversight.
He was very intelligent
and highly educated, with
Jesuit training, said former
First Chicago CEO Richard
L. Thomas, who succeeded
Sullivan. And he was deeply involved in the community and always tried to do the
right thing. In the end, some
strategic issues didnt work
out well.
Sullivan, 85, died Aug. 11
at his home after suffering a
stroke, said his son Gerald.
Sullivan, a longtime resident
of Bronxville, N.Y., long had
suffered from Parkinsons
disease, his son said.
Born in New York City,
Sullivan grew up in the
Bronx and graduated from
Regis High School on Manhattans Upper East Side,
where he was a standout
high school basketball player. He attended Georgetown
University from 1949 until
1952, when he enlisted in
the Army and served in
Korea.
He finished college at
Columbia University, earning a bachelors degree in
history and languages in
1955.
Sullivan considered the
priesthood and also was set
to join his hometown New
York Knicks before having a
change of heart.
I signed a contract with
the Knicks, but then I said
Ive got to be out of my
mind, Sullivan told the
Tribunes Bill Barnhart in
1980 about his basketballplaying days. I played
guard, and in those days I
was a very big guard. But
today Id be a shrimp.
After college, Sullivan
moved to East Chicago, Ind.,
where he worked in Inland
Steels management training
program. While at Inland
Steel, Sullivan attended
night school at the University of Chicago Graduate
School of Business. He later
became a full-time student,
earning his MBA in 1957.
Sullivan in 1957 joined
Chase Manhattan Bank in
New York, where he was

named a senior vice president in 1972. He later became an executive vice


president at Chase and handled strategic planning for
Chases recovery from the
1974-75 recession.
In 1980, Sullivan was chosen from about 25 candidates to become First Chicagos chairman and CEO,
replacing the brash A. Robert Abboud. Abbouds
stormy, 4 12-year tenure
had included the exodus of
more than 200 executives
and a slide in profitability
owing in part to rising interest rates and an economic
recession.
In his early years at First
Chicago, Sullivan replenished the banks depleted
executive ranks, boosted
morale and increased the
banks profitability.
He came with a reputation for being very disciplined and organized and
he created a very structured
organization with the bank,
focused on a strategic direction, and he brought in a
bunch of really good new
people, said former First
Chicago vice chairman David Vitale. Thats what he
was brought in for, and
thats what he did.
Sullivan charted a new
course for First Chicago that
included more emphasis on
investment banking products and services, a successful move into the credit
card business, and an expansion into retail banking.
There were stumbles
during his tenure as well,
among them lagging stockholder returns, losses from
the bailout of a small Brazilian bank in 1983, overleveraged buyouts, loans to
failed real estate projects
and a general downturn in
banking in the early 1990s.
Sullivan also was dealt a
blow when a lieutenant at
the bank, Senior Vice President Jeffrey Tassani, was
involved in a multimilliondollar kickback scheme involving bank contractors
that sent several individuals,
including Tassani, to federal
prison.
While working at First
Chicago, Sullivan was involved in the unsuccessful
effort to hold a Worlds Fair
in Chicago in 1992. He also
took a role in improving the
finances of the Catholic

Archdiocese of Chicago and


led a coalition to try to
decentralize Chicago Public
Schools.
The late Cardinal Joseph
Bernardin in 1986 tapped
Sullivan, along with James J.
OConnor, Andy McKenna
and the late Edmund Stephan, to set up the Big Shoulders Fund, which since its
founding has raised more
than $300 million to support inner-city Catholic
schools in the citys poorest
neighborhoods.
He was a very strong
advocate for these schools,
and he was very involved
personally and also got the
bank to contribute, said
OConnor, Commonwealth
Edisons retired chairman
and CEO. And he was a
very competitive guy. He
wanted to win in this.
McKenna, the former
chairman of McDonalds,
recalled Sullivan as a smiling Irishman who came in
with an Irish smile and Irish
wit.
Thats a pretty good calling card for being in a
responsible role in the city
of Chicago, McKenna said
with a laugh. And he was a
New Yorker, but he jumped
right in and was an important ingredient in getting the
Big Shoulders Fund going.
Sullivan also served on
the board of trustees for the
University of Chicago for 16
years and was chairman
from 1988 until 1992, a
period during which he
worked on the construction
of its business schools
downtown Gleacher Center
campus. He was awarded an
honorary doctorate from
the university in 1994.
In October 1991, he announced his retirement.
Sullivan returned to New
York City and served as the
citys deputy mayor for finance and economic development under Mayor David
Dinkins. He then spent a
year and a half as the New
York City Board of Educations chief operating officer.
In his later years, Sullivan
pursued a masters degree in
theology at Fordham University and spent a decade
as vice chairman of publicly
traded power plant owner
and operator Sithe Energies.
He also enjoyed facing off
against his grandchildren in
video games.
We got him a Nintendo,
and he played Mario Kart
and Super Mario, his son
said with a laugh. He had a
very competitive nature.
Sullivans wife of 53 years,
Audrey, died in 2009. In
addition to his son, Sullivan
is survived by three other
sons, Barry Jr., Scott and
John; a daughter, Mariellen
Carpenter; a sister, Mary
Ellen DArcangelo; and 17
grandchildren.
Services were held.

Condes, Charles Constantine

Charles Constantine Chuck Condes passed away


peacefully on August 17,
2016.
Born and raised in Chicago,
Charles was the devoted son
of the late Constantine and
Haricleia (Yiannias) Condes
and, for 25 years, the beloved
husband of the late Phyllis
(Holik) Condes.
Charles is survived by his
brother Sam C. Condes; his
niece Harriette (Tassos) Zervakis; his
nephew Johnny S. Condes; his grandnephews Sam C. Condes and Peter
Nicholas Pete Zervakis; his brother-inlaw Ralph Holik; cousins and friends.
In addition to his parents and wife, Charles was predeceased by his brother Nicholas G (the late Lena)
Condes, his toddler sister Chrisanthy Condes, his
sister-in-law Helen (Plakas) Condes, and his sisterin-law Rosetta (Holik) Attwood.
Charles graduated from the Illinois Institute of
Technology (IIT) in 1942 with a BS in Mechanical
Engineering. During WWII he served in the U.S. Army
Air Corps as a meteorologist attached to the Royal
Air Force. His weather readings, transmitted in code,
were invaluable and used for a variety of purposes
by the Allies. Charles often talked about his WWII
experiences in North Africa, Cyprus, and the Middle
East.
Following the war, Charles began his engineering career as a consultant, ultimately working as a Bridge
Design Engineer for the City of Chicago. He was
particularly proud of the machinery he designed for
raising some of the bridges over the Chicago River.
Charles was highly valued in his department.
Throughout his life, Charles worked hard and
showed incredibly keen judgment. As a high school
student, he established a retail dairy store; later
he made brilliant investments in the stock market.
Charles was the familys most trusted adviser.
With a strong appreciation of history and culture,
Charles traveled extensively across the United
States, Canada, Europe, Russia, the Caribbean, and
South America. No matter where he traveled, he
always found the local Greek Orthodox Church to
attend a service. Theres so much to see in this
world, he once said, and Im glad I saw a lot of it.
A genuine philanthropist, Charles supported many
causes such as the Pan-Hellenic Scholarship
Foundation, Leadership 100, the National Hellenic
Museum, Philoxenia House in Rochester, St. Photios
Shrine, and many others.
Charles led an exciting, and also deeply principled,
life. His warmth and kind manner will be greatly
missed.
His family extends special thanks to Dr. Scott
Pawlakowski, nurses Aurora DeLeon and Laura
Villano, and caregivers James Curran and Carlo
Tuazon.

DeWall, M.D., Richard A.

Richard Alison DeWall, M.D., age 89, born to Grace


Gardner and Herman Harvey
DeWall on December 16,
1926, in Appleton, MN, died
peacefully at his home on
August 15, 2016. Survived
by his loving wife of 63
years, Diane (Prettyman)
DeWall; daughters: Beth
Barclay DeWall, of Chicago,
Amy (Steve) Dadmun, of
Milwaukee, and
Melissa
(Tim) Slager, of Hudson, OH; grandchildren: Lauren
Dadmun, Richard John Dadmun, Shelley Dadmun,
Paige Dadmun, Luke Richard Slager, Sadie Slager,
and Marybeth Slager; and many nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by his parents and siblings:
Robert DeWall, Jean Morris, and Lorraine Ostdahl.
Dr. DeWall grew up in Morris, MN, where he became
an Eagle Scout. He enlisted in the US Navy where
he served until October 1945. He then graduated
from the University of Minnesota in 1949, where he
also obtained his M.D. in 1953. He was a member of
Sigma Chi Fraternity, and later became a Significant
Sig. Dr. DeWall was also a member of the Universitys
Marching Band.
While serving his medical internship at United
States Public Health System in Staten Island, NY,
he treated both servicemen and immigrants at Ellis
Island, and at that time became interested in the
function of the heart.
Returning to Minnesota, he approached his former
mentor, Dr. Richard Varco, with a model of the
heart he carved from plaster of Paris, and then began work as a research assistant in experimental
surgery. Open-heart surgery had just begun at the
University of Minnesota. The need soon became
apparent for a heart-lung machine, an oxygenator,
to replace the human donor. With approval and encouragement from Dr. Owen Wangensteen and Dr. C.
Walton Lillehei, Dr. DeWall took on this project and in
a period of less than six months in 1955, produced
the first workable, portable bubble oxygenator. The
DeWall Bubble Oxygenator became the model used
around the world for open-heart surgery. A replica
of his first oxygenator is on display at the National
Museum of American History at the Smithsonian
Institution.
Dr. DeWall continued his cardio-thoracic surgery
career as Chairman of the Department of Surgery
at Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago from 1962-1966.
He then moved to Dayton, OH, where Mrs. Virginia
Kettering was eager to have open-heart surgery
performed at the new Kettering Hospital. She arranged for Dr. DeWall to come to Dayton to start the
Open Heart Surgery program at the hospital, as well
as serve as Chief of Surgery at Cox Heart Institute.
Dr. DeWall joined the practice of Drs. Charles OBrien
and Robert Taylor, and performed the first open
heart surgery at Kettering hospital.
Soon after his arrival in Dayton, Dr. DeWall felt the
city might support a medical school to supply doctors for local hospitals. For the next three years in
addition to his increasingly busy surgical practice
Dr. DeWall worked to enlist the support from
medical, civic, and political leaders. Dr. DeWall wrote
the original proposal for what became The School
of Medicine at Wright State University. He also established the general surgery residency-training
program at Kettering and served as director from
1970-76.
In addition, Dr. DeWall authored hundreds of publications, and many of his inventions led to further
medical innovations. He was a proud member of
Oakwood Rotary Club, the 49ers, Moraine Society,
American Association for Thoracic Surgery, a Fellow
of the American College of Cardiology, and American
College of Surgeons, and belonged to several other
medical societies and civic associations.
Dr. DeWall had a love of trees, a passion for skiing and woodworking, and he could fix absolutely
anything. A natural curiosity of how things work
and repairing or making things better drove his inventiveness. He will also be remembered as a true
visionary. A devoted and deeply caring husband,
father, and grandfather; friends and family will
remember him for his sharp wit, humbleness, and
gentlemanly qualities. He and Diane built a beautiful
life together upon a strong foundation of faith, family, and friends.
A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00pm, on
Friday, August 26, 2016, at St. Pauls Episcopal
Church, 33 W. Dixon Ave., Dayton, OH 45419. Family
will greet friends immediately following the service
at the Moraine Country Club, 4075 Southern Blvd.,
Dayton, OH 45429.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions are made to the Academy of Medicine at

Fundarek, Romaine E.

Romaine Fundarek, a retired investigator from


the Office of Professional
Standards, Chicago PD and
a published author, died on
August 15th after a short
illness. She was 86. She attended Jones Commercial
High School. After graduation
in 1948 she won a spot on
the Morris B. Sachs Amateur
Radio hour along with 9 other
contestants. She wasnt the
top winner but it began her love of singing, acting and writing which lasted her
entire life.
After getting married and starting her
family, she began writing when her children were
asleep. After two years, the result was her book
Honeymoon in a Tacklebox, a fiction loosely based
on her honeymoon in Minnesota. Later in her career,
she became an investigator. She loved the Chicago
PD and working with the public and won citations
for her work. She remained friends with the many
people she met in OPS until her last days.
In her later years she traveled extensively, visiting Tokyo, London, Paris, Rome, Bejing and Greece,
as well as Hawaii, Eagle River and Las Vegas. She
always tried to visit a police station where ever she
went and to talk to the officers about their jobs. This
created an interesting situation when she was in
China trying to communicate with the guards she
met. She was working on a book about many of
those stories that she had gathered over the years.
Above all, our mother was an intelligent, funny and
good person who always tried to be kind. Everyone
who met her will remember her and have a good
story to share. We miss her dearly.
She is survived by her children, Dyane, Tim and
Colleen; her grandchildren who were the light of her
life, Griffin and Katelyn; her brother Bob and sisterin-law Carol Mrazek. She was predeceased by her
husband John, her parents Mary and Emil Mrazek
and six year old sister, Agnes.
She will be waked Sunday, August 21st from 2-8
p.m. at Adolph Funeral Home at 2931 S. Harlem Ave.,
Berwyn,. Private interment on Monday August 22nd.

Fort Thomas, Kentucky where
she had lived for the past
four years. Dorothy was born
June 21, 1928 in Daggett,
Michigan, the fourth of six
children, to Edith and William
Bockman. The family moved
to a dairy farm in Marengo,
Illinois where Dorothy attended the one room Pringle
School and later went to high
school in McHenry, Illinois. After moving to Chicago
to pursue a secretarial career, Dorothy met and
married Norman Geis in 1954. Norman and Dorothy
raised their family in Highland Park, Illinois, where
Dorothy volunteered at the Ravinia School. During
this time she shared her love of reading with many
children. In later years Dorothy loved watching the
sunsets on Silver Lake in Wisconsin, and walking the
beaches of Sanibel Island, Florida. After Normans
death, Dorothy moved to Charlotte, NC and later
to Fort Thomas, KY. Generous, spirited, independent, and kind, Dorothy touched many and will be
missed more than she ever imagined. Dorothy was
preceded in death by husband Norman Winer Geis,
and daughter Carolyn Rachel Geis, as well as by

on August 13. Carol loved
her family, her surviving

A Geriatric Health Care Consultant and Nurse

She operated her own practice for over 18 years,
prior to that she practiced with Lake Forest Hospital,
Rush Medical Center, Michael Reese Medical Center,
and Mayo Clinic. The needs of Carols patients always came first. She was a lifelong advocate for the
elderly.
Carols gift was making lives better. A great listener, she elevated everyone she came in contact
with. We became better people through knowing
Carol and her attitude toward life.
Accomplishments were many but Carols proudest were her daughters. Both professionals, her
biggest smiles were reserved for Rae and Cara. She
loved Ray unconditionally and knew he was her
constantly vigilant protector. The love for and from
her family will never end.
Struck by cancer in June, Carol made daughter Caras August 7 wedding in NYC her goal. She
achieved that goal through her own tenacity and
Mayo Clinics care. Services are private, donations

Ortiz , Manuel Manny

Manuel Manny Ortiz was so poor growing up in


the Philippines that he and
his ten siblings would beg
the lunch ladies at school for
a little soup to pour on their
plain rice for flavor. After rising up from Third World poverty to middle class America,
Ortiz was so grateful for the
way his life turned out, his
laughter and ever-present
smile became his lifelong
trademark.
It is that smile his beloved wife, Grace, and their
three children, David, Vikki (Shawn Healy) and Gigi
Ortiz will miss the most after his death Aug. 12,
2016. He died peacefully at home in Westmont surrounded by family.
He is the beloved son of the late Teresa and Salvador.
Proud grandfather of Gracie and Madison. Dear
brother of Aurora (the late Rolando) Bote, Carmelino
(Remy) Ortiz, Boy Ortiz and Nanding (Inday) Ortiz.
And fond uncle of many nieces and nephews.
Born Nov. 17, 1939 in Cabiao, Nueva Ecija, Manny attended San Carlos Seminary in Manila, and attended
University of Santo Thomas in the Philippines, even
when it required his mother to wash his only dress
shirt in the sink each night. He received his BA in
English and Philosophy, while working part-time as
a college instructor and also at the Manila Bulletin,
where he wrote controversial editorials in critique
of the Marcos regime. When his college sweetheart,
Grace, moved to the U.S., he sent her beautiful love
letters via air mail. In 1966, he joined her and the
couple married at the Quigley Chapel of the Holy
Name Cathedral in Chicago on Dec. 21, 1968.
Manny was in the first class of graduates of the
MBA program at Loyola University, and worked as a
director at McMaster Carr and then for more than a
decade as the Vice President and general manager
for Graphic Color Corporation in Elk Grove.
He was an active parishioner at Holy Trinity Church
in Westmont, who volunteered as an usher,
Eucharistic minister and CCD teacher.
He retired from SunChemical in 2004, and had
big plans to teach the great works of Shakespeare
which he knew by heart, to complete the patternless crossword puzzle in the newspaper each day,
to play Mah-Jong every weekend, to feast on King
crab legs every chance he got and to spend even
more time with the family and friends he always
made his first priority. He volunteered for two years
at the Field Museum in Chicago before Alzheimers
Disease cut those plans devastatingly short. His
family knows he is now at peace and smiling down
on them from heaven.
Family and friends are to gather Aug. 27, 2016 at
9:30 a.m. for a celebration of life mass at Holy Trinity
Church, 111 Cass Ave. Westmont. In lieu of flowers,
the family requests donations to the Alzheimers
Association.

I switched my fathers pre-paid funeral


from a Chicago Jewish funeral home
with chapels to Mitzvah Memorial
Funerals and saved over $2600
I hadnt heard of Mitzvah Memorial Funerals when I pre-arranged Dads funeral and accidently
called them when he passed. They explained they didnt have the overhead funeral homes
with chapels have thus using them for a graveside service would be far less expensive without
sacrificing the quality of service or merchandise that I had arranged. They also explained that
the insurance policy I set up for my father was easily transferable and I would be refunded
the difference.
I used Mitzvah and couldnt have been more satisfied. The service was beautiful and the casket,
which was $850 less than the same one I had chosen, was actually nicer as it was finished.
Its easy not to be concerned with money when you lose a loved one, but spending thousands
more for a funeral home with chapels when I wasnt using the chapel would have only made this
difficult time much more difficult.

the area between 30 degrees north and 30 degrees south latitude in an
eastern wind regime. This
includes the trade winds.
The vast majority of hurricanes (and tropical
weather in general) forms
within this band and
moves east to west. Here
in the United States, the
30-degree north-latitude
line lies roughly along the
Gulf Coast, and this is the
approximate delimiter.
However, the line tends to
drift up to 300 miles farther north during the
summer and 300 miles
farther south in winter.

Breezy, warm and more


humid. Clouds build with a
good chance of thunderstorms. Storms become
more numerous at night as
a weather system
approaches. Southwest
winds 15-25 mph.

Its not as if winning a medal in


the Olympics makes you a

of cases, said Jim Andrews,
senior vice president of IEG, a
Chicago-based sponsorship
research and valuation firm.
If youre talking about a gold

something like that, its not a
lucrative medal that you really
cash in on, unfortunately for
those folks.
Athletes were rated with input
from IEG on their Olympic
performance and possible
chances at landing marketing
deals post-Games. Some are
already top earners, while others
plan to defer endorsements to
maintain their collegiate
eligibility.

Phelps cemented his place in Olympic history by winning five gold medals
and a silver in Rio, bringing his total to 28 medals, including 23 gold, over
three Olympics. Sponsors include Under Armour and Omega and his
marketing value, dented several years ago by DUI convictions and apparent
marijuana use, could reach new heights post-Rio.

Tat Towels bring wipes to a new place: Your body art


By Cheryl V. Jackson
Blue Sky Innovation

Where will the body


wipe go next? One Chicagoarea company is aiming its
product at a new area:
tattoo care.
Tat Towels is among the
latest offerings from the
Mundelein-based Body
Wipe Co., which launched
in 2010 with the Paper
Shower, a package of dual
wet and dry paper towels
used to freshen up in lieu of
showering.
Founder Jim Bahcall, a
dentist and cyclist, said he
got that idea while using
paper towels in a mens
room to dry off from the
moist towelettes he used
after a ride. He started the
company in the basement of
his Buffalo Grove home, and
he and early investors soon
decided to add other sorts
of personal care wipes.
Euromonitor puts the
U.S. market for personal
wipes, including general
purpose, baby, feminine hygiene and cosmetic wipes, at
$2.2 billion a year. Chicagobased Dude Wipes is among
the many companies vying
for pieces of the market.
Body Wipe has gotten an
infusion of energy and money from Joel Saban, previously an executive in finance and operations at

KERI WIGINTON/CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Tat Towels are said to boost color and definition of tattoos just under the skins top layer.

CVS Health and pharmacy


benefit management company Catamaran.
Saban was an executive
vice president at Catamaran, which grew over five
years to $23 billion before
UnitedHealth Group
bought it for $12.8 billion
last year. I retired from
UnitedHealth not knowing
what I was going to do.
Linking with Bahcall
their wives were friends
seemed a good move. Saban
joined the company in Jan-

bluesky@tribpub.com

uary as its sole full-time


employee, seeing an opportunity to take a company to
the next level and step away
from health care.
The wipe business is
growing exponentially. I
saw an opportunity, he
said. Theres no dominant
player in the personal care
wipe business. There are
some companies that have
just one or two different
types of wipes.
In all, four investors including Bahcall and Saban

have put about $250,000


into the venture so far. In
recent months, theyve
opened a warehouse and
contracted with sales representatives to seek shelf
space in brick-and-mortar
stores.
Were working hard,
looking at new opportunities and not being afraid to
take risks, Saban said.
The company plans to
supplement a lineup of innovative products with
their versions of more com-

mon types of wipes. Paper


Shower sales occur mostly
during the summer, and
retailers prefer to work
with companies that offer
multiple items, he said.
We want to create a
one-stop shop for people
who are looking for personal care wipes, Saban said.
The company has followed the original Paper
Shower with other variations: the Paper Bidet
womens bathroom wipe,
the tattoo wipes and a
makeup remover wipe.
Its very difficult to
come up with innovative
products, Bahcall said. We
also looked at products we
thought we could make
better.
The company says single-use Tat Towels quickdrying, 7-by-10-inch wipes
infused with vitamins and
minerals from fruit and
plant extracts make the
body art more vivid by
moisturizing the surface of
the skin, boosting the color
and definition of the tattoo
just under the top layer.
A canister of 40 wipes
costs $7.95 at www.tattowels.com, Amazon.com or
eBay.com. A 12-pack of individually packed, larger
wipes sells for $6.95.
Americans spend $1.6
billion annually to get tattoos more than 45 million

Americans, or about 40
percent of 26- to 40-yearolds, have at least one tattoo,
according to the Pew Research Center.
Folks typically turn to
petroleum jelly, lotion or
baby oil to moisturize their
tattoos, Bahcall said.
While Tat Towels makers tout convenience and
less mess, it isnt necessarily
better than moisturizing
with regular lotion, said
Gifford Kasen, owner of
Logan Square Tattoo. He
said the brightening effect
can be achieved by shaving
the area to remove hair and
dead skin that can dull the
look of a tattoo.
Bahcall said he expects
some resistance from those
in the tattoo community
who are leery of new products. But he added that the
product is designed for the
masses, and he thinks
theyll find the wipe format
appealing.
Were able to achieve
the same thing without the
greasy aspect of mineral oil
and lotion, he said. We
look at this as a better way.
Putting this formulation
into a wipe is an easier,
more efficient way to do it.

Retirement shock: Plan


on $130K for health care
Life expectancies,
medical costs soar;
many unprepared

Gail MarksJarvis
On Money

Heres a figure that may


make you sick if you are
planning to retire soon
and havent looked at what
your health care costs are
going to be.
If you are 65 and retiring this year, you will need
about $130,000 during
retirement to cover your
health care expenses. For a
couple, the total is about
$260,000, according to an
estimate reported this
week by Fidelity Investments.
That has to be a shock
for many people close to
retirement.
According to the U.S.
Government Accountability Office, about half of
people close to retirement
have no retirement savings. Among those who
have savings and are within 10 years of retirement
age, half have accumulated
no more than $104,000 in
savings.
Another 15 percent of
near-retirees have
$500,000 saved. If you are
among them, you might be
gasping now: Clearly
$500,000 looks puny
when you assume that you
will have to use $260,000
of it to pay for insurance
for doctors and hospitals,
and extras like dentists,
glasses and medicine.
If you think you can
shave something off those
costs, its not likely. Fidelity bases its estimate on
what people must pay
each year to get Medicare
and the additional medical
costs that arent covered
by Medicare.
Some people assume
Medicare is free, but its
not. The average person
will pay $107.60 a month
next year for the monthly
premiums the government
charges to get Medicare
doctor and hospital coverage, or what is known as
Medicare Part B. Then for
drug coverage, the average
monthly cost will be
$40.66, according to a

ISTOCK

Fidelity estimated a couple


would spend $130,000 for
long-term insurance providing three years of care.

recent Medicare trustees


report.
But even after paying all
of those charges, you will
be far from done. Medicare pays only part of
medical costs, so besides
paying for their Medicare,
retirees need to buy supplemental insurance policies. They are called Medigap and average about
$180 a month. And you
arent done with costs
after that, either. There are
additional out-of-pocket
expenses for medicine,
dentists, eye doctors,
glasses, hearing aids at
$5,000 a pop and a lot
more.
The average retiree gets
about $1,350 a month from
Social Security.
Since 2002, each year
Fidelity has looked at
current medical costs and
the way they have been
growing. With that, the
investment firm has estimated what retirees are
likely to have to pay in the
years ahead. Fidelitys
estimates are generally
considered reasonable
among financial planners.
With health care costs
and life expectancy both
rising, this years estimate
is about 6 percent higher
than last years and about
14 percent higher than
2014s. Fidelity Senior Vice
President Sunit Patel said
the estimates assume
health care costs will rise
4 to 5 percent a year.
Thats higher than the
recent 2 percent average
between 2010 and 2015,
but lower than the 6 to 8

percent that preceded the


recent slowdown in costs,
he said.
The truth is no one
knows with certainty what
will happen over 22 years,
said Patel, although the
estimates help people
plan.
Fidelity assumes a
person will retire at 65 and
live to the average retirement age calculated by
actuaries. Thats 85 for a
man and 87 for a woman.
Because women tend to
live longer than men,
women should assume
higher total health care
costs over their retirement
years. Consequently, a
single woman might expect to pay $135,000 for
health care during retirement and a man $125,000,
according to Fidelity.
Longevity is one reason
why women must be
especially attentive to
savings and calculating
retirement needs. They
can face shortages of savings late in life after devoting large amounts to care
for ill husbands.
One major cost that is
not woven into Fidelitys
health cost estimate is
long-term care insurance,
which helps elderly people pay for nursing assistants when they cant walk,
are recovering from surgery or going through
treatment for a long illness
such as cancer. Currently,
a daily cost of $250 is
common for such care,
possibly totaling about
$90,000 for a year. Medicare doesnt pay any of it.
Fidelity estimated that a
couple would need an
additional $130,000 to pay
for a long-term care insurance policy that would
provide $8,000 a month
during three years of care.
The estimate assumes
inflation adjustments in
monthly benefits.
Not everyone needs
long-term care insurance,
said Patel. It depends on
variables like the amount
of money you could devote
to the care if needed and
whether family members
could care for you. People
who want the insurance,
he said, should get it
around age 50 because by
65 health conditions such
as osteoporosis, diabetes
or heart trouble could
make people ineligible.

Capping a distinguished
43-year career in Chicago
television news, Robert
Jordan announced plans
last week to retire as weekend news anchor at Tribune
Broadcasting WGN-Ch. 9.
Jordan, 72, expressed
deep and ambiguous feelings in an email to colleagues. There are not
sufficient words to express
my profound gratitude for
your wonderful friendships
to those of you whom I
have known for so long, he
wrote. It has indeed been

you and to have been able

last weekend newscast on
Sept. 25, but will still turn

of his contract.
In an interview, Jordan
said his immediate plans
are to concentrate on his
independent production
company, Video Family

family histories. He also
plans to work on video
projects for the Alzheimers

Recovery from surgery


slow for Boers: Itll be at

least early October before


Terry Boers returns to his
afternoon show on CBS
Radio sports/talk WSCRAM 670, the veteran Chicago radio personality said
last week.
Boers, 66, has been off
the air since mid-June,
when he underwent surgery for an undisclosed
condition. At the time he
said his recovery would
take around two months.
In response to a request
for an update, Boers shared
a note to colleagues at The
Score.
Due to some unforeseen
circumstances, my recovery
is indeed going much
slower than I had hoped or
expected, he wrote. It
sounds silly, but the fact
that Ive been unable to do
the show in so long hurts
way more than any of the
medical stuff thats been
happening. I cant explain it either, and the doctors and nurses are at a
loss. Boers did not elaborate on the circumstances
or his ailment, which he
earlier called a medical
thing.
During his absence,
various substitutes have
been filling in for Boers
alongside Dan Bernstein on
the popular show they
co-host from 1 to 6 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
Boers joined The Score
at its inception in 1992. He
has been teamed with
Bernstein since 1999. Boers
is believed to be in the final

months of his contract with


The Score, with speculation that he plans to retire
in January.
US 99 rounds out new

Kimmie Caruba, a Chicago native who once
worked as a morning show
intern for iHeartMedia Top

programming intern for

to host from 7 p.m. to midnight Monday through
Friday on US 99, starting
Aug. 29.
She replaces Joel Jax
Lisinski, who was forced
out earlier this month. Her
hiring follows the stations
rebranding as US 99 Chicagos Hottest Country and
the promotion of Doug Stylz
and Justin Roman, former
afternoon duo on CBS Radio Top 40 WBBM-FM

SUIT CAMP MEL SAFFORD

On the hunt for innovators


to feature at Chicago Ideas

She keeps antennas


up for people at
top of their game
By Corilyn Shropshire
Chicago Tribune

Mel Saffords mantra is late


nights and early mornings.
Thats in part because of her
work: As the director of booking at
Chicago Ideas, the Elgin native, 27,
spends her days and many nights
recruiting the likes of Gwyneth
Paltrow, Theaster Gates and Bang
Bang Pie founder Michael Ciapciak to host adult versions of
show and tell with the public.
Saffords fingerprints are on
some of Chicago Ideas hottest
events Paltrow discussing her
lifestyle website Goop, Pie Making
101 with Bang Bang Pie Shop and a
cheese-making seminar with the
cheese monger at Eataly Chicago.
All for $15 per ticket.
And in true millennial style, she
has more than one gig she also
serves as the Chicago producer for
the crack-of-dawn sober rave
known as Daybreaker.
She previously was talent coordinator at Harpo Productions.
The Tribune recently talked to her
about whats next for Chicago
Ideas and how she squeezes it all
in. The interview has been edited
for length and clarity.
Q: Whats the idea behind
Chicago Ideas Week?
A: Our speakers are unpaid and
our budgets are tight. We rely on
partners and members to support
us. A lot of it is really communicating that were unique and you
shouldnt have to pay all this
money to hear from a world-class
speaker. Across the board its
about setting up a relationship.
Q: How did you land your
job?
A: I left Harpo in the spring of
2015. I was trying to figure out
whats the right next step. A
former co-worker talked to me
about Chicago Ideas since another
former Harpo booker was looking
for someone in an admin role.
I talked to her, she said this is just a
lower-level job and I thought,
Thats OK, Ill make it what it can
be. ... It buys me a little more time
in Chicago before I decide to move
on. Of course, then they came
back and said, Youre grossly
overqualified. They broke up
with me and then a day later asked
me if I wanted something else.
(The next day) they called and
said, What do you think about
being the director of our labs
program? I started the next week.
(She was named director of booking earlier this month.)
Q: What does your job entail?
A: I have been tasked with

NUCCIO DINUZZO/CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Elgin native Mel Safford, 27, is working toward Chicago Ideas Week, set for Oct. 17-23. She previously was talent coordinator at Harpo Productions.

finding who are the innovators at


the top of their game across every
industry in every neighborhood in
Chicago and how can we bring a
small group of people to do a
behind-the-scenes, hands-on experience you couldnt do under
this umbrella of Ideas Week. We
go to North Side, South Side, West
Side, every little pocket. The fact
that we can do that at such an
affordable and accessible level is
something that I fell in love (with).
I feel like Ive struck gold again.
Q: What was is the biggest
get or accomplishment
youve had so far at Chicago
Ideas?
A: I oversee a group Chicago
Ideas put together called the
Co-op. Its like a social chamber of
commerce. Its about how do we
connect all of these leaders from
Chicago in the same room, have
them talk to each other and have
that spawn new pieces? Put a
cocktail in their hand or a great
piece of food or art on the wall?
How do we get Josephine Lee
(president and artistic director of
Chicago Childrens Choir) in the
same room as Ted Souder from
Google? (Kickstarter co-founder)
Charles Adler from the Center for
Lost Arts as Tanner Woodford
from the Chicago Design Museum?

Q: What is the most challenging part of your job?


A: Im sure any nonprofit would
say the budget. I have a zero
budget for labs. Everything is
donation-based, generously so.
Q: You have to have a conversation with everyone you
talk to about donating their
time, talent and space?
A: I get to have that conversation with everyone. (Laughs.) Im
so lucky. So far the response has
been great. They see its such a city
collective and that its something
cool to be a part of.

and I said, Well, you know,


Oprah, obviously. And she said,
You know, I worked for Oprah. A
month later I saw an opening for
an assistant position and I sent it
to her. She sent my resume. I got a
call an hour later. Im shaking and
freaking out and having a very
physical reaction. A week later
I got a call and got an offer for it.
And my whole world changed.
Q: What did you learn working at Harpo?
A: Grace under pressure. I
learned to underpromise and
overdeliver at all times. I learned
honesty. I learned to be thorough.
That no small task is too small.
And answering the phones well
matters.

Q: Is this what you planned to


do when you grew up?
A: Frankly, I watched a lot of
television as a kid and I thought,
Samantha Jones (a character on
the television show Sex and the
City) is a publicist, maybe I can be
a publicist. (Laughs) I didnt have
a basis for what I wanted to do. I
just knew that I liked people and I
wanted to be powerful and independent.

Q: What are you excited


about right now?
A: Bringing the Co-op and the
Chicago Ideas initiative to another
pocket of the city the Arts Block
to see the work that Theaster
Gates and his team at the University of Chicago is doing.

Q: How did you get the job at


Harpo Studios?
A: Growing up here, I was a
huge Oprah Winfrey fan and
looked up to her. I was die-hard. I
was working and my boss asked
me what would be my dream job

Q: What can we expect from


Chicago Ideas Week (Oct. 17-23)
this year?
A: A range of world-class speakers, including chief technology
officer of the U.S. Megan Smith;
the first person to sequence the

human genome, Dr. J. Craig Venter; Hollywood producer Will


Packer; and 16-time Grammy
Award-winning producer David
Foster.
Q: Where do you see yourself
in five years?
A: I take everything one day at a
time. The dream was Oprah. And
now Im trying to figure out what
do you do after the dream. The
dream happened early.
Q: What is Daybreaker?
A: It was founded in New York.
The founders (Matthew Brimer
and Radha Agrawal) had the idea
to turn nightlife on its head, to take
the good: The energy, the light
show, the quality music and
the crowd, and put it in the
morning when people are usually
doing their monotonous activities,
going for a run, doing yoga, not
waking up, hitting the snooze
button and having this energy and
collective experience. They
wanted to start in other cities. Its
become this amazing thing in
Chicago. Its once a month and we
hold it on Monday mornings, and
we take over various spots
throughout the city. Its sober but
full of spirit.

When having your


head in the clouds
can be a good thing
Drifting can be a break
from work demands,
other life pressures

Rex W. Huppke
I Just Work Here

I saw some clouds the other


day.
Thats not inherently exciting, I
know, but stick with me.
It was a weekend evening and I
was grilling on the back porch
with the grill lid down and my
mind, as usual, was racing.
Life is hectic. Im sure you can
relate. Im busy with my kids,
with errands and bills and
projects and household chores.
And Im abundantly busy with
work, which is never farther away
than the phone in my pocket.
Thats why the clouds surprised me. I mightve forgotten
they were up there.
I happened to glance west and
caught sight of two mountainous
puffs of white, framed in fiery red
and pink from the sunset behind
them, creeping eastward. The
view was stunning, richly detailed, the kind of meteorological
marvel you see in grand vistas,
not out the corner of your eye on

an average weekend night at


home.
I couldnt look away. It held my
gaze for several minutes as the
grill sizzled and my brain, blessedly, slowed down.
Clouds. When was the last time
I stared up at the clouds? How
long had it been since I studied
their shape, their tinted edges,
their speed?
I know it sounds like Im cracking up, but this brief, out-of-nowhere moment hit me hard, a
reminder that I sometimes do a
lousy job following my own advice.
Ive written in this space about
mindfulness, about living in the
moment and taking time to let
your thoughts drift, about the
importance of disconnecting
from work so it doesnt always
feel like a boulder chasing you
downhill.
And there I was, looking at a
pair of clouds like I had never
seen such a thing in my life. Like
it had been months since I had
taken the time to look up from a
screen and notice that theres a
sky above.
Damn. It made me mad.
We work like crazy building
careers, in part because we dont
want to look back and wonder if
we should have tried harder.
Thats a good and important
mindset for a working person.
But I also dont want to look
back and realize I never paid
attention to the clouds. Or to

ANTONIO PEREZ/CHICAGO TRIBUNE 2013

How long has it been since youve taken the time to look up from a screen and notice theres a sky above?

other simple things that come


and go whether we pay attention
to them or not.
Theres no way to do all we
want in one lifetime to be the
best father or mother, the best
employee or boss, the most mindful person. With every decision
we give and we take. I prioritize
my family, and that takes from my
work. Then I prioritize my work,
which takes some from my family
and more from the time I might
spend noticing clouds.
This isnt just me; this is all of
us. Its a brutal thing to calculate,
and we tend to do it without
thinking, perhaps because thinking too hard about it might drive
us nuts.
I dont claim to have a solution
to the daily juggle of work and
family and me-time and everything else. There are plenty out
there who would make such a
claim while trying to sell you a

book or a three-hour life-coach


session that would let you in on
their secrets.
All I can tell you is what I came
up with after pondering my skygazing, midgrilling, back-porch
revelation.
Im going to try to not be so
hard on myself about failing or
succeeding in this elusive quest to
strike the right balance between
work-attentiveness and mindfulness. That doesnt mean I surrender. I just think I and perhaps
many of you as well get too
mad at myself for not living in the
moment, and being mad only
compounds the problem.
Im also going to reverse what
teachers told me when I was a kid
and got caught spacing out in
class: Get your head out of the
clouds.
It was reasonable advice at the
time, but I think as we get older
and busier and more burdened

with responsibilities, we might


benefit from occasionally getting
our heads back in the clouds.
So thats my advice. Look up
now and then. Watch something
you dont notice as much as you
once did drift along for a minute
or two. Let your brain coast.
After I watched those clouds
the other day I checked the grill
and everything was fine nothing burned while my mind was
elsewhere.
I think theres a message in
that.
Thanks for sticking with me.

Gawker
ending
reign of
scandal

New chapter for NYC

Associated Press

MARK LENNIHAN/AP

As the Westfield World Trade Center mall opened Tuesday, crowds of shoppers and the curious gathered for a celebration under the transportation hub.

World Trade Center mall reopens in a neighborhood forever changed by 9/11 attacks
By Anne DInnocenzio
Associated Press

NEW YORK The reopening of the World Trade


Center mall is expected to
help transform downtown
Manhattan shopping and
illustrate how much progress has been made in rebuilding and revitalizing the
area since the 9/11 attacks.
Shops from Apple to
Forever 21 to H&M to John
Varvatos will serve an increasingly diverse group of
area residents and workers
beyond Wall Street bankers. But theyll also be
catering to tourists who
come to visit the National
September 11 Memorial &
Museum, which requires a
delicate touch.
The new spaces let customers tap into technology,
as some retailers use the
space for their latest ideas.
This fall, Ford Motor Co. is
set to open the first FordHub, a showroom for innovations thats not a dealership. Shoe purveyor Aldo
Group was using Tuesdays
opening to launch an app
feature for the World Trade
Center store, which will be
rolled out to other stores.
Digital billboards in the
mall include one that is 280

feet long.
We truly believe this
will be the center of commerce and culture for lower
Manhattan, says Bill
Hecht, chief operating officer of Westfields U.S. division. Westfield manages
the retail properties, while
the Port Authority of New
York and New Jersey owns
the real estate.
Hecht describes the location as a symbol of hope,
opportunity, progress and
perseverance.
The 365,000-squarefoot center will have more
than 100 stores, with about
60 having opened Tuesday
and the rest opening by the
winter holiday season.
Food options include the
second Manhattan location
of Eataly, which features
foods from Italy and coffee
and gelato bars.
The center stretches
along a four-block underground network that spans
the bases of three office
towers. While the network
is mostly below street level,
light beams in through the
windows of the winged
Oculus, designed by Santiago Calatrava, that tops the
transportation hub for 13
subway trains and river
ferries. More than 300,000

commuters use it on a daily


basis.
When you look at how
many people now live in
the neighborhood, how
many commuters work in
the neighborhood and how
many tourists now are coming to the memorial, emotionally it was a no-brainer
and financially it was a
no-brainer, Angela Ahrendts, Apples retailing
chief, said at the stores
opening Tuesday.
Westfield says 15 million
travelers are expected to
visit the areas from the U.S.
and around the world next
year to see the memorial and
nearby places of interest.
We have huge respect
for this site, Hecht said.
There is no signage on the
side of the mall that faces
the 9/11 memorial. Every
year on the anniversary of
the attacks, the skylight of
the Oculus meant to
symbolize the image of a
dove released from a childs
hand will open to bring a
slice of the open New York
sky into the building.
Westfield said ensuring
safety and security at the
mall is the highest priority
for it and the Port Authority. Uniformed police and
private security will be

present at the mall, Port


Authority spokesman Joe
Pentangelo said, but declined to give specifics
about any other measures.
As with any high-profile
public location and transit
center, there are extensive
security measures that have
been put in place with law
enforcement and others,
Westfield said.
More than 60,000 residents live within blocks of
the World Trade Center
area, about three times the
number from right before
9/11. The former shopping
mall in the World Trade
Center was one of the most
successful properties in the
world, but catered to daytime weekday shopping,
said Robin Abrams, vice
chairman of The Lansco
Corp., a real estate advisory
firm. The new mall is expected to have a vibrant
night and weekend atmosphere, and Hecht noted a
deliberate move to include
shops with necessities like
drugstore Duane Reade.
Real estate experts believe the mall will complement the nearby Brookfield
Place, which opened in
2015 and features high-end
shops like Gucci and Hermes. It will also be different

from the Seaport Mall,


which is being reopened
next year and is focusing on
catering to local residents.
In addition to retail, a Beekman hotel and Four Seasons
Hotel as well as a performing arts center are coming,
part of the $30 billion
poured into the downtown
area from public and private investment since 9/11.
The lower downtown
area has about $6.5 billion
in annual buying potential,
said Jessica Lappin, head of
the Downtown Alliance,
which manages the downtown-lower Manhattan
business improvement district. Hecht expects the
mall will eventually generate about $1 billion in retail
sales annually, making it
one of the most productive
of the companys sites.
The new malls plus the
developments to come are a
lot of new retail for the area
to absorb. But New York
real estate experts believe
residents have been eager
for more shopping and restaurants. Our sense is that
there has been demand for a
long time that wasnt met,
said Lappin. There may be
some bumps along the way.
This is an area that needs
places to shop and eat.

Founded in 2003 as a
gossipy blog about Manhattans media elite,
Gawker pioneered the irreverent, snarky tone that
has become ubiquitous
online. Gawker is going to
shut down as its parent
company is sold to Univision, it was reported last
week.
Here are some of the
biggest and most notorious stories during
Gawkers nearly 14-year
tenure.
Gawker Stalker maps:

In 2006, Gawker combined its Gawker Stalker


celebrity sightings section
with a Google map of New
York that was updated in
real time. Critics of the
feature, notably Jimmy
Kimmel, said the feature
endangered the safety of
celebrities by publishing
their whereabouts. The
map was eventually taken
down.
Gould overshares: In

2007, Gawker editor Emily Gould announced her


resignation through a post
about the sites problems.
She landed a New York
Times Magazine cover
story about the perils of
oversharing online in
which she overshared
even more about her romantic relationships
which she eventually expanded into a book of
essays called And the
Heart Says Whatever.
Cruises Scientology
recruitment video: In

2008 Gawker published a


Scientology recruitment
video featuring a blackturtlenecked Tom Cruise.
It showed just how fanatic
the actor was about his
religion.
ODonnell tryst account: In 2010, again

pushing the boundaries of


gossip about public figures, the site published an
anonymous account of a
tryst with Christine
ODonnell, a tea party activist who ran for a U.S.
Senate seat in Delaware.
After an outcry that the
post was misogynist and
violated ODonnells privacy, Gawker went on the
defensive and published a
follow-up post to explain
why it published the account. Gawker also published ODonnells response.
Hogan sex tape: In 2012,

in a move that would


ultimately cause the sites
demise, Gawker published
a video of Hulk Hogan
having sex with his
friends wife. Hogan sued
the site for invasion of
privacy and, bankrolled by
tech billionaire Peter
Thiel, won a $140 million
judgment that led to
Gawkers bankruptcy filing. Thiel was outed earlier by Gawkers now-shuttered Silicon Valley gossip
site Valleywag and had
complained about Gawker
and Valleywags journalism tactics.
Rob Fo rd s mo k in g
crack: In 2013, a Gawker

post claimed that its writers had seen a video showing then-Toronto Mayor
Rob Ford smoking crack.
Gawker raised $200,000

Staff exodus: In 2015,

Gawker published a post


about a married Conde
Nast executive attempting
to pay for a gay porn star in
Chicago. The post was
widely criticized for invading the executives privacy, and Gawker took it
down, with founder Nick
Denton publishing a statement about it. Some
Gawker staffers criticized
the decision to remove the
post and said it was a
business-side decision
with no input from editorial staffers. Staffers published their own statement, and several quit.

SNAP fraud fairly rampant

Trafficking, from Page 1

are redeemed at supermarkets


and merchants like Costco.
Nevertheless, the $975 million
lost annually to food stamp trafficking, as Republicans in Congress have sought to cut SNAPs
funding, has prompted the USDA
in recent years to send a clear
message through more sophisticated tracking and aggressive enforcement: Trafficking will not be
tolerated.
I think they know the rules. ...
Its just a temptation that some
stores give into. Theyre playing
the odds they wont get caught,
said USDA Undersecretary Kevin
Concannon.
The crackdown has created
empty storefronts and fewer shopping options in parts of Chicago, as
most disqualified retailers were
corner stores in low-income predominantly minority neighborhoods on Chicagos South and
West sides. In those neighborhoods, a store getting booted from
SNAP effectively means getting
shut down. Some SNAP advocates
say corner store trafficking represents a symptom of a much larger
problem deeply entrenched poverty exacerbated by poor schools,
nonexistent jobs, scant business
development and years of neglect
from all levels of government.
In Illinois, about 1.9 million
people receive assistance through
SNAP, up from about 1.2 million
people some 10 years ago. Nationally, roughly 43.4 million people
receive an average monthly benefit of about $125, according to
USDA data from May. The
monthly benefit has decreased or
stayed basically flat for the past
five years.
Exchanging benefits for cash
comes at a cost, both for taxpayers
and those perpetrating the scam.
In a typical scenario, a customer
might trade $100 worth of benefits for $50 cash, leaving the
other $50 for the retailer. For
corner stores with razor-thin margins, such high-risk deals might
represent a source of needed
income. Customers lose a portion
of their benefits in the deal, but
they walk away with cash that can
be used for expenses that cant be
paid for with SNAP benefits,
which are intended only for food.
We dont want these merchants preying on low-income
communities of color and we
dont want them tearing away at
this important program, said
Diane Doherty, executive director
of the Illinois Hunger Coalition.
Certainly, not all SNAP benefits
are exchanged to help make rent.
One customer of stores on the
Near West Side said he swapped
his benefits for cash to support his
heroin habit and to buy diapers for
his baby daughter.
It undermines public confidence when SNAP benefits are
not used the way theyre intended.
... You cant just violate the program and rationalize it by saying,
Well, I was struggling, Concannon said.

Cracking down
On a grim two-block stretch of
West Chicago Avenue on the citys
West Side, straddling the neighborhood boundary of Humboldt
Park and East Garfield Park, three
corner stores were disqualified
last year for trafficking. Two are
now shuttered; one has since
reopened under new ownership.
A Grand Opening sign still
hangs on the storefront beneath a
bright yellow menu hawking
dishes such as gyro sandwiches,
chicken wings and fish dinners.
At Homan Food and Deli, another corner store on the same
block, employee Ammar Alobadi
said he and co-workers are asked
daily by customers to exchange
benefits for cash but they refuse
because its considered haram, or
forbidden, in Islam.
Across the street, Mohamed
Salam, manager of Ben Salem
Food Market, offered a more
worldly reason to not participate
in food stamp trafficking.
If a stores caught trafficking,
the government will take everything you have and they shut you
down, Salam said, speaking from
behind the protective partition of
the elevated counter common in
many corner stores.
At one Englewood store, Link
card sales account for about 80
percent of the business.
In recent years, the federal
government has used enhanced
data tracking tools to sanction
more stores, tracking suspicious
transactions of electronic benefits.
Stores are then ranked based on
risk, placed on the agencys watch
list as needed, and reviewed further by USDA analysts. Sometimes undercover agents are deployed to suspect stores, Concannon said.
Between fiscal years 2013 and
2015, the total number of stores
disqualified nationally rose from
1,215 to 1,906, representing a 57
percent increase, according to the
USDA. But the total number of

authorized SNAP retailers still


increased by 5,670 stores during
that time.
In some cases, SNAP violations
lead to criminal prosecutions.
Since October 2014, 16 indictments and 12 convictions of Chicago retailers, stemming from
investigations conducted by the
USDAs Office of Inspector General, have led to $2 million in fines,
forfeitures and restitution orders.
Corner stores were already a
source of concern for the Cook
County states attorneys Regional
Organized Crime Task Force,
which found theyre often conduits of bad operations, including
fencing stolen goods, identity
theft, organized crime and SNAP
trafficking, said Assistant States
Attorney David Williams. The
Cook County states attorneys
office has partnered with federal
authorities on prosecutions.
In 2011, the task force successfully lobbied state lawmakers to
toughen penalties for crimes that
sometimes occur at corner stores,
including trafficking, allowing
prosectors to charge higher-level
felonies and seize assets if patterns of criminal conduct could be
proven, Williams said. Williams
said he considered SNAP trafficking to be fairly rampant among
Chicago corner stores.
We see a lot of it. Its a major
problem. Its our tax money thats
basically funding these criminal
operations, he said.

Symptom, not cause


Angela Odoms-Young, an associate professor of kinesiology and
nutrition at the University of
Illinois at Chicago, has researched
corner stores and healthy eating in
urban communities for years. In
some cases, people are willing to
exchange benefits for cash to get
their basic needs met in times
when they are food-rich but
cash-poor, she said.
Trafficking is more a symptom than it is the root issue,
Odoms-Young said.
It is the systematic, historical,
structural inequity that exists that
would cause a person to be willing
to exchange their food benefits for
cash because they need to pay
utilities, get gas, pay for housing,
she said.
Fewer people are receiving

cash assistance from the government than in years past. In 1996,


President Bill Clinton signed into
law a major overhaul of the
welfare system that replaced the
federal entitlement program with
a state-administered block grant
known as Temporary Assistance
for Needy Families, or TANF. One
result is welfare programs dont
automatically expand in times of
economic downturn, shifting
some burden to SNAP.
From 1989 to 2014, the number
of households receiving SNAP
benefits more than tripled as the
country weathered financial
storms including the Great Recession from 7.3 million households in 1989 to 22.7 million
households in 2014, according to
the USDA. But during that same
time period, the percentage of
SNAP households that also received cash welfare benefits fell
from 42 percent in 1989 to
6 percent in 2014.
The trafficking conversation
plays into this image of the
criminalization of the poor,
whereas as the larger focus should
be on ensuring people have adequate resources to live and access
to a variety of healthy food options
within their communities,
Odoms-Young said.
SNAP advocates point not only
to the help it provides to some
43 million impoverished people in
the U.S. assistance that doesnt
burden cash-strapped state coffers but also to its broader
economic benefit. Every $5 in new
SNAP benefits generates up to $9
in economic activity, according to
the USDA.

Forgotten stores
Driving through Englewood on
a recent rainy morning, Shamar
Hemphill cast his gaze out the
window at a small cluster of
people idling outside a corner
store and sighed.
This is what happens. This is
the economy, said Hemphill, director of organizing for the InnerCity Muslim Action Network.
Since its inception in 2007, the
nonprofit has worked to ease
racial tensions between corner
store owners often immigrants
of Middle Eastern descent and
their largely African-American
customer base in some Chicago
neighborhoods, Hemphill said. In
recent years, the group also has
worked with retailers to promote
healthy food options.
Hemphill sees corner stores as a
forgotten population of merchants with little support from the
city or the USDA. And yet, theyre
often the only source of sustenance in some of Chicagos poorest and most dangerous neighborhoods, he said.
Ultimately, its a good thing
that the USDA is agitating
with increased enforcement of
trafficking, Hemphill said. But
in neighborhoods like Englewood,
where jobs are scarce, schools are
poor and economic development
is almost nonexistent, there are
other factors to consider, he said.
Stores feel like theyre operating on an island and dont have
any help, Hemphill said.
Sami Deffalas Morgan Mini
Mart in Englewood provides a
glimpse of how corner stores

might be part of the solution,


rather than the problem. Clean
and well-lit, the store features a
bevy of hot meal options, a full
meat counter and a modest produce selection. There is no partition at the counter. Deffala addresses his customers as sir and
maam a respect instilled in
him by his father, who also ran an
Englewood corner store.
When you have respect for
your customer, you dont have
anything to fear but God, Deffala
said.
On a recent morning, he offered
paper towels to a woman coming
in from the rain, a free piece of
cake to a young girl celebrating
her birthday. In 13 years of operation, the store has never faced
sanctions from the USDA.
But Deffala also knows that
when he refuses to exchange
SNAP benefits for cash, thats not
the end of the conversation. Some
Link card holders also strike deals
with other customers, using their
cards to buy the customers
groceries in exchange for cash, he
said. They can also simply go to
another store that is willing to
oblige.
A USDA official hasnt set foot
in Morgan Mini Mart in at least
two years, said Deffala, who added
that more frequent inspections
of corner stores could help prevent trafficking. And the state
government could help by adding
the cardholders name and photo
to Link cards, making it harder to
use someone elses benefits, he
said.
Its easy money and some
stores have become enablers,
Deffala said. But its not just the
stores, the government is also at
fault here.

U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps on the medal stand after the


medley relay in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 13.

Swimmers
in spotlight for
a brief time
Olympics, from Page 1

derailed by scandal, poor


performance or simply
time and fading memories.
A 2015 study by Indian
researchers concluded that
modern consumers being
smart and educated enough
to recognize celebrities
meant quality and brand
image were often greater
considerations when it
came to purchases.
Endorsements, they
found, might reinforce
brand loyalty more than
create it.
But that it has any effect
at all is puzzling for anyone
who long ago learned the
hard way that batteries
werent included, some
assembly may be required,
weight loss results were not
typical and actual mileage
may vary.
Phelps is, to be sure, an
imperfect vessel. In 2014,
for the second time in 10
years, he pleaded guilty to a
drunken driving charge.
But NBCs announcers
and Under Armour, with its
commercial showing the
swimmer working tirelessly toward a last hurrah,
pushed a narrative of redemption and newfound
determination.
Swimmers, unlike
basketball stars, for example, dont get a lot of time in
the spotlight and can illafford to waste opportunities when the world may be
watching.
So much is being made
in marketing circles about
the latest cover of Sports
Illustrated magazine showing Phelps flanked by fellow swimmer Katie Ledecky and gymnast Simone
Biles. Also on the cover, a
Nike swoosh on Phelps leg.
If Phelps cared about the
logo as much as were all
supposed to, however, it
wouldnt have happened.
But Phelps, whom
Under Armour sponsors,
put on his official Nike
Team USA sweats one leg
at a time for the photo
shoot. Either he wasnt able
to hide the Nike logo or he
didnt think about it.
Theres a tradition of
cover-ups and gamesmanship when it comes to logos
at the Olympics, perhaps
most famously on display
or hidden with the original U.S. mens basketball
Dream Team in 1992.
Rebelling against being

made to wear award-ceremony uniforms with Reebok logos on them, the


superstars that year unzipped their jackets so their
collars folded over the
sponsor patch. Michael
Jordan, Charles Barkley
and Magic Johnson left
nothing to chance and also
draped American flags over
their shoulders.
Jordan said he regretted
only that there werent U.S.
flags for all the players to
wear.
Everyone agreed we
would not deface the Reebok on the award uniform,
Jordan said at the time.
The American flag cannot
deface anything. Thats
what we stand for. The
American dream is standing up for what you believe
in. I believed in it, and I
stood up for it.
If I offended anyone,
thats too bad.
Check recent official
team pictures of the U.S.
mens Olympic basketball
squads and youll see the
legacy. Each is posed in a
way that obscures the footwear of players who dont
endorse Nike shoes.
Its not as though theyre
bringing in new consumers
to the footwear market.
Much of the time theyre
merely leading buyers to
reconsider or reinforce
allegiances.
In fact, Kelloggs Garthwaite suggested that if
there were a way to end the
endorsement arms race,
companies might gladly
scale back. But there would
always be fear of someone
breaking ranks, exploiting
the lull and collecting stars
to sell its stuff.
Deep down, of course,
we know Phelps choice of
apparel brand should have
no influence on us.
We could buy the whole
costume and still come no
closer to the excellence he
epitomizes than throwing
on a cape, tights and big
letter S would get us over
tall buildings in a single
bound.
But Ad Age reported
earlier this year that Under
Armour apparel sales, up
28 percent year-over-year
in 2015 to $3.96 billion, are
expected to hit $7.5 billion
by 2018. So were apparently buying it.

5 WAYS TO
BE MORE
FINANCIALLY
RESPONSIBLE

1. Stick to a budget. There are different


schools of thought on the best ways to
budget, but in general, it helps to track your
spending, even if youre not categorizing
every transaction. If you dont know where
your money is going, chances are youll lose
track and end up short when it comes time to
pay bills.
2. Save for emergencies. That means
you have three to six months of expenses
set aside in an emergency fund or account
in case you lose your job, are unable to
work, your heat pump goes out, your car
needs repairing, you break a leg. Anything.
Emergencies happen and you need to save
for them.
3. Develop a plan to pay down and
consolidate your debt. Call your creditors
and ask for lower interest rates, special
payment plans and other perks to help you
achieve your goal. Now, pay off those
creditors that are charging the highest
interest. After youve paid off the big
offenders, use that same money to carve
down your other debts.
4. Learn how to manage your
retirement savings plan. Due to the
growth of retirement savings plans such as
401(k) and 403(b) plans, workers are now
responsible for managing their investments.
Most workers lack basic financial knowledge
but need to become experts about work
benefits.
5. Get a side hustle. Side hustles are odd
jobs that are flexible and provide a little
extra cash to spend outside of the regular
paycheck. At best, they will encourage your
hobbies and perhaps fuel a second career. If
you are adept at graphic design or play an
instrument, seek out opportunities that allow
you to hone these skills and increase your
network to get paid for your abilities.
Major debt issues nationally
According to a new CareerBuilder survey,
68 percent of all workers say theyre in
debt, and while most (46 percent) say its
manageable, 16 percent of all workers have
reduced their 401k contribution and/or
personal savings in the last year, more than
a third (36 percent) do not participate in a
401k plan, IRA or comparable retirement
plan, and 25 percent have not set aside
any savings each month in the last year.
Of employees in debt, the majority (55
percent) feel they will always be in debt
and cite having these debts: Credit card,
64 percent; auto loan, 47 percent; mortgage,
45 percent; student loan, 31 percent; loans
from friends or family, 10 percent; tax debt,
8 percent and; other, 14 percent.

HEALTH CAREER CHICAGO: Pediatric nurses

Making those essential


connections with patients

elen Sullivan says shes never


been good with adults. OK, that
sounds a little extreme, admits
the 62-year-old Chicago resident.
Lets just say that I find adults a little hard
to take.
Sullivan rifles off some examples
pushy customers at the grocery store where
she shops, lazy neighbors who place their
garbage bags outside of the cans in the alley
and the women at the health club who stare
at the bodies in the mirrors from here to
Sunday instead of working out. But kids,
well, she loves kids. I have three children
and seven grandchildren, she says. And we
have some great kids in this neighborhood.
Sullivans preferences completely predict
her profession a pediatric nurse for more
than 30 years. Ive worked in hospitals,
medical clinics, schools and doctors
offices and the kids are always the common
denominator, Sullivan says. You have a
special bond with them because you see them
at their most vulnerable. Most of them are
nervous or scared, so theyre looking to the
adult in the room to make them feel better.
And most times, that adult is the nurse,
says Sullivan. No offense to the docs
and Ive worked with some wonderful
docs but they spend a lot less time with
the patients than the nurses do, she says.
And even when theyre in the room, theyre
usually talking to the parents so the kids are
in the background anyway.
Sullivan, who is taking time off to
recover from hip replacement surgery, has
worked at Cook County, Lutheran General
and Resurrection hospitals. She says the
experiences differed because of patient
demographics but she found that most kids
are looking for the same thing from their
nurses. They just want some attention, she
says. I made it a point to keep up on the
Cubs, Sox, Bears and Blackhawks because
you can put a boy at ease if you start talking

Education: Diploma from an


accredited nursing school and
NCLEX exam.
about the hockey playoffs. Same for girls. I
try to keep up on music and movies for them.
I dont want to be the old lady talking about
celebrity gossip. But there are plenty of girls
who want to talk about the Blackhawks, too.
Sullivan, who has a degree from the
University of Illinois-Chicago, says pediatric
nurses often have a different demeanor
than their colleagues who work with older
patients. You can be sarcastic with some
adults, joke around with them, be a little
bossy, but you have to start out slow with
younger patients, she says. You have to
make sure theyre comfortable and willing
to share information. You cant intimidate a
kid or scare him so much that he wont talk
about the pain in his stomach. That defeats
the purpose.
When she recovers from her hip surgery,
Sullivan says she may look into teaching. I
think my days off making rounds are over,
she says. You can walk a lot as a hospital
nurse. I think I put in more miles in my years
at Cook County than some of those guys in
the Olympics. And I want to keep walking
for another 30 years and my knees are going
to go under the knife next, so I need to take it
easy. Ive been walking with some ladies on
my block during my recovery and I can feel
it for the rest of the day.
Ladies from the block? Like, adult ladies?
Theyre OK. I have a husband and a
couple of sisters and my kids are all grown
up, so I guess I can handle some adults, she
says. I just never wanted to deal them at
work. Id cover for some nurses some nights
and a few hours with adults in the hospital
was more than enough.

CAREER SPOTLIGHT:
Build a businesss online presence
as a computer programmer

omputer programmers are also known


as software developers or coders,
depending on the industry and job
types they work on.
They essentially build the tools, apps,
or websites that companies use to function
and provide their services. For example, a
computer programmer might build a reporting
software for a digital marketing company that
aggregates all client information in one spot.
They could also create a website for a catering
company that lets customers place orders
online. Computer programmers can work on
multiple projects in a variety of industries, or
specialize in one area.

Meet with clients to review website


problems and goals
Format plans for improvement and growth
Develop websites, social networks, apps, and
tools for clients
Attend calls to update the team on projects
and processes
Learn new programming languages that can
be used to create specialized software
Track progress, issues faced during the
creation process
Teach peers and managers about the
development process for better project
management
Train new employees on internal systems

Responsibilities

Work environment

The computer programmer job description


varies by project, but they essentially work
as digital architects to plan, construct, and
test the framework for stability. They often
work with clients that have limited knowledge
of development and need to communicate
effectively what can be done and what
timeline is required.
Here are daily responsibilities that a
computer programmer needs to follow:
Write programming code in multiple
languages
Troubleshoot problems with the website,
software, or apps that they work on
Create and launch updates to existing
software
Brainstorm solutions for bugs or software to
improve customer experience

The work environment for a computer


programmer varies. They will typically work
in a cubicle or office with a desk, computer,
and multiple monitors. Employees may be
given tablets or laptops that they can carry
around with them to meetings, and they will
need to be able to use their desk phone and
office printer.
Some computer programmers are allowed
to work from home, and they may set up a
workstation or home office where they can
concentrate away from other distractions.
Depending on the company, the computer
programmer may be required to travel
throughout the year to meet with clients, show
software demos, and attend trade shows.

FUN&GAINS
A

LOOK PAST THE SACK RACE AND POTATO SALAD


COMPANY PICNICS ARE ALL ABOUT PEOPLE
drian Mazur was talking to his
father about work earlier this
summer when his dad asked
him a question he couldnt
answer: Do you work with a lot
of other people who have kids?

I thought about it for


a second and I realized I
couldnt answer him, says the 46-yearold Chicagoan. I really had no idea.

Mazur, who recently left a large


advertising firm in Chicago, says hed
occasionally make small talk with his
coworkers about their families but it
didnt amount to much.

Mazur says his dad told him stories


about guys he worked with for 30 years
at International Harvester. How he
knew their wives, met their kids a
totally different experience than I
had, Mazur says. He talked about the
company picnics, how hed drink beer
and eat burgers with guys from work
while they watched their kids play
whiffle ball.

Fading Americana
For many years, the company picnic
was a mainstay of American culture.
Thats not the case today, says Deborah
Walsh, a New York-based work/life
consultant. The company picnic was
standard practice for years for small
and large businesses, says Deborah
Walsh, a New York-based work/life
consultant. It was an annual event,
a big deal. It was the way employees
connected with each other and their
families.
Lauren Jackson, an English teacher
in Arlington, Texas, says she can
remember going to Motorola company
picnics in the Chicago suburbs when
she was young. My mom worked there

for years, and those picnics were pretty


frequent, she says. I remember those
jumpy-house things and playing a lot of
games. It was always a fun day.
So what happened?

Walsh says family friendly events


like company picnics faced harsh
economic realities in the late 1990s and
early 2000s when companies began
curtailing their budgets. Those are
the types of events that are the first
to go, says Walsh. Its a bottom-line
approach to your business. I think its
also very shortsighted because without
family-open events, companies wont
realize the full value of their workers as
people, not just employees.

Face to face
Dr. A.J. Acierno, CEO of DecisionOne
Dental Partners, which owns 17 dental
offices in Chicago and its suburbs,
recently hosted his companys second
annual picnic, an event that Acierno
is coming to view with increased
importance. We all have work families
the people we spend a lot of time
with, the people we rely on and the
people who play a significant role in
our lives, Acierno says. When our
employees go home and talk to their
real families about work good or bad
we have to mean something to those
family members, too.
Acierno says the best way to do
that is to create relationships not only
between him and employees but also
between the employees themselves.
I want people to put a face on the
company, whether thats me or a
hygienist from a different office, he
says. I think people enjoy getting to
see the faces behind the names. A week
from now, a routine encounter like an

email becomes a little more personal


because youve met the person on the
other end.
Meeting a coworkers family comes
with its own share of benefits, Acierno
says, especially for those who manage
others. When you go to these picnics
and start meeting other peoples kids,
you start to see them as this whole
new person. Its impossible to look at
them as someone whos just a dental
assistant. You see a parent of three and
the husband of a nurse. You see the
girlfriend of a teacher, he says. When
someone calls in and says theyre going
to be a little late because their kids are
sick, you get it. Youve seen it firsthand.
Acierno admits that he has broader
goals in mind as well. When you think
about companies years ago, you used to
hear spouses say, My husband works
for a great boss, but you dont hear
that too often these days, he says. But
thats what we want for our company.
Thats who we want to be. We want
people to be with us for 20 or 30 years,
so we need to establish that by not only
taking care of them as employees but
by caring for their families. Of course,
a picnic isnt the only way, but its
something.

Mazur agrees. Companies want


loyalty, but they either dont know or
dont care about how they earn it. They
think they can keep you from looking
for a new job by throwing some perks
your way, maybe a business trip or
a new iPad, he says. But its not all
about raises and bonuses. Sometimes,
its something as simple as eating
hamburgers with your coworkers and
watching your kids play whiffle ball.
That, to me, would be a good perk.

notion that one narcissistic numbskull, by causing
an international incident marked by idiocy, can
overshadow any Olympic athlete realizing his or

WHAT WE LEARNED

Langford
latest Bear
sidelined
By Dan Wiederer |

Chicago Tribune

The Bears made Warren Township


High School the latest stop on their
preseason tour Saturday evening in
Gurnee, holding a 90-minute practice in
the Blue Devils home stadium. It was
an abbreviated yet energetic session as
the Bears begin to focus on Saturdays
exhibition game against the Chiefs.
Heres what we learned under the
Saturday night lights.
Add Jeremy Langford
to the list of walking
wounded.

CHARLES KRUPA/AP

Jeremy Langford averaged 6.9 yards per carry against the Patriots and looked more like a potential impact player for the Bears.

Steve Rosenbloom

Running game finds its legs


Hey, look! More than a vague threat of a
Bears rushing attack!
That was the most important thing the
Bears showed in Thursday nights practice
game against the Patriots. Good thing, too,
because it was exactly what they had to
show after starter Jeremy Langford
managed a stinkin 1.8 yards per carry the
week before when everything stunk out
loud.
John Fox declared the Bears to be a
running team, and there was Langford
busting off a 34-yarder and following that
with a 5-yard touchdown run.
His big run came behind the right side of
the line manned by Kyle Long and Bobby
Massie, where the Bears will do most of
their rushing business, and included a cut
around a great downfield block by Alshon
Jeffery.
Langfords touchdown blast came up the
middle on a cutback that showed
decisiveness and vision.
Dont get me wrong: This wasnt Adrian
Peterson. But it wasnt fall down, go boom
either. There was a sense the offensive line
could open some holes and Langford could
do something with them, using that long
run to average 6.9 yards per carry. Unlike
the Bears practice opener, this looked
remarkably like football.
If nothing else Thursday, the Bears
backed up their talk about running the ball
to punish the opponent and shorten the
game. And you would want to shorten the
game, too, if you had their tight ends and
secondary.

Jimmy Garoppolo shredded the Bears

Want even more of Rosenblooms


ramblings? Cmon, of course you do.
chicagotribune.com/rosenblog

Who would have thought Garoppolo

Good Will Sutton: The defensive lineman

on a two-minute drive. Does the Bears


second-string defense know theres a
middle of the field?

against Bears backups would be such a


rout? OK, so weve confirmed that depth is
an issue. Heres the rule: Nobody good is
allowed to get hurt.
I saw Jerrell Freemans interception in

the opener, but mostly Ive seen a lot of


trailing on plays on which linebackers
shouldnt be trailing.
Tracy Porter forced a fumble by

Brandon Bolden inside the Bears 5 and


recovered the ball, and, man, did he ever
need it after missing a tackle in the
backfield that produced a 21-yard gain and
then committing pass interference on the
next play.
Linebacker Sam Acho sacked Garoppolo,

but safety Harold Jones-Quartey was


flagged for holding. The secondary jobs are
wide open because the secondary is bad,
and Jones-Quartey is one of the reasons.
In the two practice games, the Bears

have tried a lot of different things with


first-round pick Leonard Floyd outside,
inside, on the move. Finally, against some
second- and third-stringers, it produced a
half-sack. But against NFL starters, when
Floyd gets blocked, he stays blocked.

charged through the Patriots line to make


first contact and throw Tyler Gaffney for a
loss on third-and-goal at the 1.
Bad Will Sutton: The defensive lineman

missed a tackle that wouldve resulted in


another loss but instead went for 14 yards
to set up a 1-yard touchdown run.
Chris Prosinski drilled a vulnerable,

airborne AJ Derby along the sideline, but


the Patriots tight end held on to the ball for
a first down. So maybe Prosinski didnt
drill him so much. That seems to be a trend
among Bears defensive backs.
I dont know who Keith Browner is, but

he made a nice play on the Patriots


two-point try.

Intercept that, John Timu. Thats part

of your job description.

One important thing we learned in

games against the Von Miller-less Broncos


and Tom Brady-less Patriots is that the
Bears should be thrilled theyre not in the
AFC.
I think the player Brian Hoyer is on the

same page with is Todd Collins.

NFL BITS

Colts Luck perfect in first start since November


Tribune news services

Andrew Luck looked fit and flawless for


the Colts on Saturday in Indianapolis.
In his first start since early November,
Luck completed all eight of his passes, led
the Colts on two long drives and avoided
taking any hits in a 19-18 exhibition loss to
the Ravens.
The Colts wanted to see which Luck
would show up the guy who went to Pro
Bowls in each of his first three NFL seasons
or the turnover-prone quarterback who
couldnt stay on the field in 2015.
Luck opened the game by leading the
Colts on a 61-yard drive that set up Adam
Vinatieri for a short field goal. He had the
Colts in position to score again until
Dwayne Allen lost a fumble at the Ravens

18-yard line. The final numbers: 8 of 8, 69


yards, no touchdowns, no interceptions, no
sacks and two slides.

Bills Dareus to enter rehab: Marcell


Dareus said he will enter a rehabilitation
facility after the Bills defensive tackle
violated the leagues substance abuse policy
for a second consecutive season.
The Bills also released backup running
back Karlos Williams before defeating the
Giants 21-0 in an exhibition game.
Packers arent going to rush Nelson:

The Packers arent in a hurry to get Jordy


Nelson ready for the start of the season.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Nelson,
who was recently activated from the
physically unable to perform list, will

practice when the Packers get back on the


field Monday.
Hell go through the individual (drills),
and then well kind of take it from there,
McCarthy said. So first things first.
After not playing last season because of a
torn ACL in his right knee, Nelson missed
the first three weeks of training camp this
summer with an injury to his other knee.
Extra points: Vikings coach Mike Zim-

mer said he has no concern about Teddy


Bridgewater after holding the quarterback
out of the second exhibition game as an
injury precaution. ... Chargers tight end Jeff
Cumberland (left Achilles) and guard
Donavan Clark (right knee) suffered
season-ending injuries Friday against the
Cardinals and were put on injured reserve.

Langford was one of 16


players on the 90-man
roster who didnt practice.
The second-year running
back was on the sideline with a walking
boot on his left foot, nursing an injury
that occurred during Thursday nights
game at New England.
I think he got landed on, coach
John Fox said. It got sore after the
game.
Kyle Long also sat out with a minor
shoulder injury. Other notables
sidelined were Danny Trevathan, Nick
Kwiatkoski and Tony Moeaki, all
dealing with hamstring issues of varying
severity.
If theyre best served to not be out
here, then theyre not out here, Fox
said. You can call it precautionary, but
its just doing whats smart.
The Bears embraced
the novelty of
Saturdays practice.

It had been a while for


many Bears since they
last practiced on a high
school field.
Said cornerback Tracy Porter, who
turned 30 this month: I dont want to
show my age here, but, man, I havent
been in a high school stadium since I
was in high school in 2004. It was a
great atmosphere to practice in. It was a
different feel.
The environment proved to be a
refreshing change of scenery as the
team began its Varsity Bears High
School Takeover series, which it hopes
to continue. The Blue Devils band and
cheerleaders were present to welcome
the Bears, and the stands were packed
with a sellout crowd estimated at 3,000.
Reminded me of high school,
receiver Kevin White said. Playing
under the lights, we had the band
playing, music going. I loved it.
The limited depth at
cornerback is being
tested to an extreme.

Three days after


having arthroscopic knee
surgery, Kyle Fuller
attended practice and
seemed to be in good spirits walking the
sideline. Several other cornerbacks
were also sidelined: Bryce Callahan
(hamstring), Jacoby Glenn (concussion)
and DeVante Bausby (undisclosed).
The ongoing injury shuffle created
increased opportunity for fourth-round
pick Deiondre Hall, who has been up to
the challenge for the most part. The
instability has also presented a heightened
challenge to Porter, who seems to have a
new partner every other day.
My biggest challenge is keeping the
guys who are injured into it, he said.

Patriots quarter horse


Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (10), an Arlington Heights native, will start the first four games of the regular season for the Patriots while filling in for the suspended Tom Brady.

From out of a legends shadow,


Jimmy Garoppolo has a chance
to make a name for himself
By Rich Campbell |

Chicago Tribune

FOXBOROUGH, Mass They come from all corners


of New England wearing No. 12 to worship at the altar of
Tom Brady and his four Lombardi Trophies.
The ritual began again Monday with the Bears in town
for three joint practices with the Patriots. Fans of every
age and size wore Bradys jersey home navy, road white
and throwback red.
Chelsey Poisson loves Brady. Dont get that wrong. But
the 26-year-old from nearby Plainville, Mass., eagerly
sought someone else as she stood in a crowd of fans hoping
for autographs after Wednesday mornings practice.
The navy No. 10 shirt slung over her left shoulder is one
of three Jimmy Garoppolo jerseys she owns. In her thick
Boston accent, she offered her scouting report on the
Arlington Heights native, in his third year as Bradys
understudy.
Smart. Good arm. Consistent. Levelheaded.
Hes going to be the next Tom Brady, she added. Im
telling you hes that good.
So, yes, expectations are high as Garoppolo prepares to
start the Patriots first four regular-season games while
Brady is suspended for his role in using deflated footballs
in the AFC championship game after the 2014 season.
Jimmy G, as hes known to local media, is about to be
thrust into the brightest September spotlight the NFL can
fire up.
In subbing for one of the greatest quarterbacks ever,
Garoppolo not only will help set the Patriots course this
season but also could springboard his career and plant the
seed for an eventual move out of Bradys long shadow.
All that pressure and attention is a long way from his
days as an unheralded recruit at Rolling Meadows High
School and a star at Eastern Illinois. But those who know
the 24-year-old on and off the field believe hes equipped
to excel in a situation he has prepared for since he was a
boy in Chicagos northwest suburbs.
I hope Im not getting numb to it, said Tony
Garoppolo Jr., the oldest of Jimmys three brothers. But
it just seems like any opportunity thrown in front of him,
hes going to really maximize it and shine.
As an invested observer, Poisson senses that too. Thats
why she was so excited to meet Garoppolo.
She beamed and offered words of encouragement as he
autographed her jersey. Whatever doubts exist about him
rising to the challenge of holding Bradys place, she has none.
Anybody in his position would be absolutely terrified,
she said. Hes not.

and 11 Pro Bowls ago.


Garoppolo called the compliments awesome and a
privilege. Deference to the king comes naturally.
Its also standard on the airwaves and the subtext for
the scrutiny that will intensify over the next six weeks.
Video cameras from 13 outlets focused on him after
practice Monday. It was only Week 2 of the preseason.
During Garoppolos stand-in radio appearance, a host
read criticism from a Boston Globe columnist about
Garoppolos ability to thrive on broken plays. He handled
it with the polish he has demonstrated since before he
threw for 53 touchdowns as an EIU senior.
Thats someones opinion, Garoppolo said. There
are certain things in this world you cant control. Youve
got to keep living without them.

I know he has the


respect of everybody.

The news reached the Garoppolo family early on July


15: Brady had dropped his appeal, opening the door for
Jimmy to start the first four games.
It happened to be the day before Garoppolo headed
east for training camp, so there was a family dinner that
night. Tony Jr. went home from his residence in Lake View.
It was just smiles around the table, he said.
That the family could celebrate together was fitting.
Their dynamic helped lift Garoppolo to this opportunity,
starting with his parents, Tony and Denise. Tony Sr. is a
union electrician.
My dad really busted his ass, Tony Jr. said. He never
worked a 40-hour week in his life. He always put in
overtime to do what it took to make our lives great.
Jimmys coaches saw him apply that same work ethic.
After he switched from outside linebacker to quarterback
as a high school freshman, he drilled throwing mechanics
with coach Jeff Christensen, an EIU graduate and former
NFL backup quarterback.
At first, Garoppolo threw a football as he would pitch a
baseball. Over the years he evolved into a quarterback
with an NFL-caliber release.
His internal drive was evident off the field. As a senior,
when Rolling Meadows was struggling to convert extra
points, Garoppolo approached coach Doug Millsaps.
We can fix this, Millsaps recalled him saying.
They combed the playbook for a half-dozen shortyardage plays they could use for two-point conversions.
In the regular-season finale, the Mustangs were perfect
on five two-point attempts in beating Prospect for the
schools first Mid-Suburban East title in nine seasons.
No stage is too big for him, Millsaps said.
Roy Wittke, Garoppolos offensive coordinator at EIU
during his first two seasons, appreciated how he never
asked about his personal statistics. Wittke said Garoppolo
was quiet and serious and enjoyed game-planning.
Wittke recalled how Garoppolo approached his first
start as a freshman. And how later that season he threw
three second-half touchdown passes to erase a 21-point
deficit and beat Tennessee State in overtime on the road.
He didnt allow the moment to get to him, Wittke
said.
Garoppolo is trying to maintain that cool as his biggest
moment nears. He insists he has tuned out the personal
stakes and the what-ifs.
Its a mindset in this building that team comes first,
he said. If the team doesnt play well for those four
games, then its not going to be good for anybody. Im just
going to take it game by game and day by day and see
where it takes me.

Making a name for No. 10


On the first drive of the Patriots exhibition win over
the Bears on Thursday, Garoppolo had receiver Aaron
Dobson open on third-and-2 near the left sideline past the
first-down marker.
Brady makes that throw in his sleep. But Garoppolos
delivery was behind Dobson and he couldnt control it.
The Pats punted.
It was a healthy reminder that no one should expect
Garoppolo to be Tom Brady. That said, the standard is
impossible to ignore. Bradys intensity is omnipresent, so
everything about Garoppolo is subjected to a microscope.
You want to see Jimmy start to get that strut, Zolak
said. Not stand over with the receivers with your hands
on your hips, where Tom is going up and down talking to
guys after they screw a route up.
Zolak wonders how Garoppolo will assert himself as a
leader once Brady is prohibited from being around the
team starting in Week 1. For now, coach Bill Belichick is
balancing getting Brady reps while preparing Garoppolo to
start the season. That means figuring out what Garoppolo
does well and putting him in comfortable situations.
Garoppolo does have 31 regular-season passes on his
resume. But as he enters his third season with Belichick,
the foundation for success is strengthened as much by his
intangibles as anything.
Jimmy has got good presence for the position,
Belichick said. I think he always has. Its always a work
in progress. Every player develops throughout the course
of their career as they gain experience. I think his
demeanor is good.
After Garoppolo missed his mark on the early third
down Thursday, he rebounded to finish 16 of 21 for 181
yards and a touchdown. He threw in rhythm and
extended some plays by moving in the pocket. His
touchdown pass to tight end AJ Derby was a 16-yard dart
between safeties Deon Bush and Chris Prosinski.
Afterward, Belichick praised Garoppolos consistency.
The spotlight on him is getting brighter and hotter. Soon
it will angle out from behind Brady, shining squarely on
his shoulders.
Then, perhaps, Jimmy Garoppolo will make a shadow
of his own.

Living in Bradys world


Theres more to filling in for Tom Brady than just
throwing touchdown passes and having wicked good
looks. Garoppolos Monday began with a call to sports
talker WEEI-FM 93.7 for Bradys weekly spot.
Garoppolos debut on the show amounted to a series of
questions either comparing him with Brady or trying to
discern how much of Bradys magic dust he has inhaled.
Seven minutes in, one of the hosts asked if Garoppolo
has watched game video of when Brady took over for
Drew Bledsoe in 2001. In doing so, the host casually
stated, Obviously, Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback
who ever lived. We know that.
In this region, thats like saying the sky is blue. Brady is
to Boston what Jordan is to Chicago.
Everything here is him, said Scott Zolak, a former
Patriots backup quarterback and the current color analyst
for their radio broadcasts. He built this place. Its his
offense. Its his team.
No wonder the hosts were curious whether Garoppolo
eats avocado ice cream like Brady does.
Ice cream is kind of my weakness, Garoppolo admitted.
But he doesnt eat the avocado stuff; only the classics
for him. A good cookies-and-cream cone, its never bad
for you, he said.
Garoppolo has indeed absorbed all sorts of advice from
Brady since the Patriots drafted him in the second round
in 2014: Be courteous and smile for the media. Get
enough sleep. And, of course, be obsessively detailed in
preparing to win.
Brady and Garoppolo sometimes stay after practice for
an accuracy competition, lobbing passes into a big blue
trash can from at least 30 yards. As Brady explained, the
stationary target cant bail them out of a misfired pass.
He works his tail off to prepare, and I know he has the
respect of everybody, Brady said. Its been fun to see his
development.
That endorsement last Sunday turned heads among
those who closely follow the team. Brady customarily
speaks with class about teammates, but he hates to give
away reps or cede ground to anyone. He has never
forgotten how he snatched the job from Bledsoe 15 years

Sale brings his As game


Ace gets over hump
to collect 15th win
By Paul Skrbina
Chicago Tribune

The batmen returned Saturday


for the White Sox. Chris Sale too.
And there was no robbin Jose
Abreu.
The result was a 6-2 victory
against the Athletics on a night
that began with threatening
clouds at U.S. Cellular Field.
The Sox helped Sale secure his
15th victory in his seventh try by
badgering the As for 10 hits. The
Sox left-hander, meanwhile, held
the As to three hits and no runs in
eight innings in front of 21,178.
It was kind of getting over the
hump for me, said Sale, who had
been 0-4 with a 4.43 ERA in his
previous six starts. My last few
times out, I havent been as good
as Ive wanted to be or as good as
Ive needed to be.
The As scored twice in the
ninth on three hits off Nate Jones
before David Robertson got the
final two outs.
Abreu had the first Sox hit,
which skimmed the mitt of As
right fielder Brett Eibner in the
first inning before sneaking over
the fence for Abreus 15th home
run.
The lead ballooned to 3-0 in the
second when Jason Coats, Dioner
Navarro, Carlos Sanchez and Tim
Anderson hit consecutive two-out
singles.
When stuff like that goes, you
kind of feed off of that and build
momentum, Sale said.
Abreu was back at it in the
third, hitting the first of back-toback doubles with Melky Cabrera
for another run.
Sale recovered quickly during a
murky first inning that began with
Cabrera making a memorable
snag against the left-field wall of
Marcus Semiens fly ball and
ended two singles and a slick 6-4-3
double play later.
Sale threw 120 pitches and

Charlotte next for Garcia

White Sox outfielder Avisail


Garcia, who hasnt played since
Aug. 6, reported Saturday to
Triple-A Charlotte on a rehab
assignment to mend his sprained right knee.
Were getting reports on
him as he plays and (will) see
how he feels right after that,
manager Robin Ventura said.
Garcia hardly is alone on the
disabled list. Nine other Sox
players are sidelined with a
variety of ailments.
Ventura said catcher Alex
Avila continues to work his
way back from a right hamstring injury that has nagged him
for more than a month. Avila
hasnt seen action since July 5.
Second baseman Brett Lawrie is rehabbing his strained left
hamstring with Double-A Birmingham. He last played for the
Sox on July 21.
Meanwhile, pitcher Miguel
Gonzalez said he hasnt received any rehab orders as he
tends to a right groin strain that
landed him on the DL after his

a similar injury last season with
the Orioles, said he might throw

Gonzalez was on a solid


seven-start roll before he left
after one inning of his last
outing. A 1-3 record notwithstanding, he had a 2.70 ERA and
had allowed 41 hits while striking out 34 and walking nine in
his last 4613 innings.
Its tough to swallow, especially the way it was going,
Gonzalez said. I just have to
keep grinding it out. I feel much
better now.
Bubble gone: Adam Eaton

showed he could hit a home run


and chew gum, not to mention
blow a bubble, at the same time

The outfielder joked that his
bubble was burst when he
returned to a locker void of gum
Friday at U.S. Cellular Field
after the teams nine-game trip.
Looks like no endorsement
deal so far.
I didnt see any sitting in my
locker, Eaton said. Im not
really holding my breath.
Eaton joked that he has
received more attention for the
bubble than most things he has
done. He added that the coincidental timing of his bubble and
the crack of his bat kind of puts
a kids spin on baseball, which is
kind of fun.

The tying run usually comes
on deck, Ventura said. We do it
whether its 2-1 or 6-0.
It seems like we have nervewracking games all the time, but
Robby came in and picked Nate
up. Nates been doing it for us all
year and hell continue to do that.
Hes allowed to have a rough one

DENVER John Lackeys


ailing right shoulder immediately told him he wouldnt be
able to start Tuesday night in
San Diego.
But the 37-year-old pitcher
insisted he wont need much
time to return to the Cubs
rotation once his shoulder
heals.
Its not going to take a
whole lot of time to get ramped
up, said Lackey, who is eligible
to come off the 15-day disabled
list Aug. 30. Ill be able to go
out there pretty quickly as soon
as I start throwing.
Even if Lackey, who leads
the Cubs with 15813 innings,
returns by the end of August, it
could be a challenge for him to
reach the 200-inning mark for
the sixth time in his career.
I pride myself in getting
200 innings, said Lackey, who
has fallen short twice by two
innings or fewer. So if I didnt,
it would be kind of a bummer.
Some of the reasons are out of
my control.
Lackey became convinced
he couldnt make his next start
when he felt discomfort trying
to throw before Wednesdays
game and then underwent an
MRI on Thursday that revealed a strain.
It wasnt a great day that
day, he said.
Lackey, however, chose his
words carefully when asked
whether warming up in relief
during the 11th inning of the
Cubs win over the Cardinals
on Aug. 11 may have led to
discomfort in the seventh inning of his next start Aug. 14.
I just work here, Lackey
said after a pause.
Lackey insisted he wants to
pitch as soon as hes physically
able.
Im not just taking a vacation, he said.
Keeping it simple: The Cubs

have scored at least three runs


in their last 19 games despite
not taking batting practice before many of those games.
Were rolling with what we
got, hitting coach John Mallee said. Were trying to stay
consistent with the approach
and routines and not trying to
add too much or overhaul a
swing or anything like that.
(Manager Joe Maddon) does a
good job of pacing things and
getting guys off their feet with
the schedule.
Mallee insisted nothing is
falling through the cracks.
We still rehearse and practice on a smaller scale, he said.

BASEBALL

Cubs postseason road


yet to be mapped out
If the Cubs finish with the best record
in the National League, theyll play the
wild-card winner in the first round. Which
team would the Cubs most like to avoid?
Obviously whichever is the hottest going
into October. With the Nationals on track
to breeze to the NL East title, here are the
Cubs possible first-round opponents.

Paul
Sullivan
On baseball

Giants

Season series: The Cubs are 1-2 with one more

series, Sept. 1-4 at Wrigley Field.


History lesson: The Giants beat the Cubs in five
games in the 1989 NL Championship Series. The Cubs beat the
Giants 5-3 in the 1998 wild-card tiebreaker at Wrigley Field
before getting swept in three games by the Braves. The
franchises have played each other since 1883.
Notable: Jake Arrieta is 4-1 with a 1.60 ERA against the Giants.
... Former Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija, now with the Giants,
rejected the Cubs long-term contract offer and was dealt to the
As in 2013 in the trade that brought shortstop Addison Russell
to Chicago. ... In a spring training game in March, Giants ace
Madison Bumgarner thought Dexter Fowler was stealing signs
from second for batter Jason Heyward. You might want to be a
little more discreet about that if youre going to do that kind of
thing, Bumgarner said. ... The Giants thought they won a
bidding war in October for Cuban-born outfielder Eddy
Martinez, but the Cubs swooped in and signed him. Giants GM
Bobby Evans told the San Francisco Chronicle the battle to sign
international free agents is like the wild, wild West.
Quotable: I dont think the team improves by trading Scott
Feldman. ... Its unfortunate. Just hope the guys they get in
return are comparable and bring the same attitude to the field
every day that those guys brought. Samardzija in 2013 on the
trade of Feldman and Steve Clevenger to the Orioles for Arrieta
and Pedro Strop.

Cardinals

CUBS 9, ROCKIES 2

For starters,
its all working
Montgomery, Cahill
provide needed relief
with combined 5-hitter
By Mark Gonzales
Chicago Tribune

DENVER The simplest way


for the Cubs to avoid bullpen
fatigue is for their starting pitchers
to pitch deeper and more efficiently, as they did during the first
two months.
That rest could extend to the
starters if left-hander Mike Montgomery can pitch as effectively as
he did Saturday night in a 9-2 win
over the Rockies.
In his first start for the Cubs,
Montgomery pitched 413 no-hit
innings before allowing a home run
to Nick Hundley on his 60th pitch.
Manager Joe Maddon pulled Montgomery because he had reached his
pitch limit, but Maddon and catcher Miguel Montero raved about
Montgomerys future as a starter.
We think he can be very, very
helpful to us, said Maddon, who
praised Montgomerys command of
his fastball, changeup and sharp
curve. Its an easy delivery. Hes
pitching with confidence. I can see
him settling in. And he knows he
belongs here and can do this and be
good.
Not just pedestrian. This guy
can be very good.
Montgomery, who made two
starts for the Mariners before he
was traded to the Cubs on July 20,
admitted he wasnt happy when
Maddon pulled him with a 7-1 lead
two outs shy of qualifying for a win.
I wanted to stay in, he said. I
was a little pissed, but I understand
the situation and the pitch count.
Thats how it goes. I felt good but
respect the decision.
Montgomery, 27, will have a pitch
limit around 80 to 90 when the
Southern California native makes
his next start Friday against the
Dodgers in front of several family
members and friends.
Hes got the weapons, Montero
said of Montgomerys starting ability. Hes a three-pitch pitcher. I
dont see why not. It wont hurt to
try.
With ace Jake Arrieta and injured John Lackey eligible for free
agency after 2017, coupled with a
shortage of starting pitching depth
at Triple-A Iowa, Montgomery
could play a role in the rotation if he
shows progress.
As for the Cubs offense, Kris
Bryant ripped his National Leagueleading 31st home run in the fifth, a
three-run shot that traveled an
estimated 469 feet to center.
The large lead provided some

series, Sept. 12-14 at Busch Stadium and Sept. 23-25


at Wrigley Field.
History lesson: The Cubs beat the Cardinals in four games in
last years division series, their only postseason meeting. The
franchises have played each other since 1892.
Notable: After a 13-2 win over the Cardinals on Aug. 12 at
Wrigley, the fog machine in the Cubs postgame party room
emitted so much smoke it set off fire alarms in the clubhouse. ...
Aroldis Chapman has limited the Cardinals to a .093 average in
35 career appearances. ... Former Cardinals outfielder Heyward
signed an eight-year, $184 million contract with the Cubs but
had the fourth-lowest OPS (.617) in the majors entering the
weekend. ... Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright has a 1.909
WHIP and 7.98 ERA in three starts this year against the Cubs.
Quotable: Im really glad we signed those guys. I think theyre
perfect fits, but it had very little to do with them being Cardinals.
It had more to do with the fact we wanted those guys. Cubs
President Theo Epstein on signing Heyward and John Lackey.

Dodgers
Season series: The Cubs are 3-1 with one more

series, Friday to Sunday at Dodger Stadium.


History lesson: The Dodgers swept the Cubs in
three games in the 2008 division series. The franchises have
played each other since 1890.
Notable: Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw last pitched June 26
before being sidelined with back issues. He threw off flat
ground Friday and might return before the season ends. ... The
Dodgers were eight games out of first place June 26 but led the
Giants by a half-game going into the weekend. ... One year after
doing so following Arrietas no-hitter at Dodger Stadium, the
Cubs will reprise their onesie trip next weekend in Los
Angeles by wearing pajamas on their flight home.
Quotable: We feel that theres time for Clayton to make a
couple, two, three starts for us. Dodgers manager Dave
Roberts on the possibility of Kershaw returning.

the 11th inning Friday. That was


Chapmans fourth appearance in
four days.
Ive really got to watch (Wood)
because hes been pitching way too
much, Maddon said. With Aroldis, Im just getting to learn him.
With his history, hes been a horse
and doesnt need a lot of rest, but I
want to give it to him.
Otherwise, you look at number
of innings pitched by our bullpen,
its the least in the league (347
through Saturday).
The Cubs have used 20 relievers
this season because of injuries and
ineffectiveness.
Its all about planning before the
game, Maddon said. You dont
want to change your mind during
the course of the game, so you know
who is available tonight. You set it
up before the game begins and you
go.

series, Aug. 29-31 at Wrigley Field and Sept. 26-28


at PNC Park.
History lesson: Theyve played only once in the postseason,
the Cubs 4-0 win in last years wild-card game at PNC Park.
The franchises have played each other since 1887.
Notable: Arrieta is 9-2 against the Pirates in his career with a
1.99 ERA and pitched a shutout in the wild-card game. ...
Chapman has a 0.90 ERA in 40 appearances versus the Pirates.
... Anthony Rizzo has 17 career home runs and a 1.004 OPS
against the Pirates. ... The Cubs have hit 20 home runs and
scored 74 runs in the 12 meetings this year.
Quotable: Its just an opportunity to salvage the series. I dont
really think theyre the best team in baseball. Pirates ace Gerrit
Cole after beating the Cubs on May 15 at Wrigley to avoid a sweep.

Marlins
Season series: The Cubs went 4-3, sweeping the

last series Aug. 1-3 at Wrigley Field.


History lesson: Theyve played only once in the
postseason, when the Marlins bounced back from a 3-1 series
deficit to win in seven games in the 2003 NLCS.
Notable: Marlins closer A.J. Ramos was 31-for-32 in saves
before giving up three runs in the ninth Aug. 3 in a 5-4 loss to
the Cubs on a walk-off wild pitch that scored Matt Szczur. It
was the first time since April the Marlins had been swept in a
three-game series. ... The Marlins entered the weekend second
in the NL in hitting but 13th in home runs and have lost slugger
Giancarlo Stanton for the rest of the season. ... Marlins reliever
Fernando Rodney had a 0.31 ERA with the Padres before being
acquired June 30 and a 5.06 ERA since.
Quotable: I dont think were panicking. Its a 162-game
season. You cant hit the panic button. I dont know whats going
on. Its a learning experience for us. Cubs pitcher Jason
Hammel after the Marlins won three of four June 23-26 in
Miami, giving the Cubs six losses in seven games.

Mets
Season series: The Cubs went 2-5, getting swept

in a four-game series June 30-July 3 at Citi Field


and winning two of three July 18-20 at Wrigley Field.
History lesson: The Cubs won all seven games in the 2015
season series before getting swept in four games in the NLCS.
The 1969 Cubs were 10 games ahead of the Mets on Aug. 13
before collapsing and finishing eight games back.
Notable: Mets pitchers have 67 strikeouts against the Cubs in
seven games. ... Chapman has not allowed a run in 13 career
appearances against the Mets. ... After being nine games over
.500 on July 7, the Mets went into the weekend one game under
with a 4.24 ERA and 13-20 record in the second half. ... The
Cubs hit .234 and went 2-for-28 with runners in scoring
position during the Mets four-game sweep at Citi Field.
Quotable: Its June, who cares? Big-boy games are totally
different. Lackey after a loss to the Mets on June 30.

Through Saturday

MLB looking for next batch of umps


Associated Press

Charlie Reliford sold his car to


chase his big-league dreams, using the money to help pay the
cost of attending umpire school.
Times have changed for those
with the skills and aspirations to
become major-league umps.
Major League Baseball held its
fifth and final 2016 umpire camp
Saturday at Tropicana Field before the Rays hosted the Rangers.
Five to seven attendees will end
up getting invitations to join a
group totaling around 30 for a
December minicamp in Fort
Myers, Fla., that will determine
umpire school scholarship re-

Mets: OF Yoenis Cespedes hit


two long home runs and an RBI
double in his second game back
from the disabled list and the
Mets beat the Giants 9-5 on
Saturday. OF Alejandro De Aza
added a three-run homer during
a four-run sixth.
Rays: 3B Evan Longoria and C
Luke Maile homered, RHP Jake
Odorizzi won his fifth game since
the All-Star break and the Rays
ended the Rangers four-game
winning streak with an 8-2 victory. Odorizzi is 5-0 with a 1.64
ERA in seven starts in the second
half. ... Utility man Nick Franklin
was placed on the seven-day
concussion list, three days after
being hit in the head by a
teammates bat while on deck.
Marlins: 1B Xavier Scruggs hit
his first major-league home run,

cipients.
All 14 of last years scholarship
recipients are currently working
in the minor leagues.
For anybody to quit their job
and risk four or five weeks of
their life is a big step, much less
(to) come up with several thousand dollars in tuition, said
Reliford, an MLB umpire supervisor. When we find candidates that are qualified, we will
encourage those people to go.
Baseball was gracious enough
to give us a budget where we
could help some worthy candidates get their start with little to
no risk of their own other than
their time.

More than 100 past participants have moved on to professional ball since the first camp in
2006. One of them, Carlos Torres,
worked the Royals-Rays series
earlier this month.
Thats really the moments
that are good to me, Reliford
said. I helped that guy a little
bit.
Reliford was fresh out of the
University of Kentucky and
working as a director at a YMCA
in 1982 when he made the call
that would eventually land him in
the majors seven years later.
Umpire school was the best
thing that ever happened to me,
Reliford said.

OF Ichiro Suzuki passed Al


Kaline in career hits and RHP
David Phelps pitched six scoreless innings to help the Marlins
beat the Pirates 3-1. Suzukis
fourth-inning double was his
3,008th hit, which put him alone
in 28th place on the all-time list.
Royals: OF Alex Gordon hit
two home runs and a double,
RHP Ian Kennedy allowed four
hits in eight innings and the
Royals extended their winning
streak to seven games by beating
the Twins 10-0. Gordon has
homered five times in five games.
Astros: C Jason Castro homered and drove in four runs to
lead the Astros to a 12-2 win over
the Orioles.
Nationals: In his first game
back after coming off the 15-day
disabled list, 1B Ryan Zimmer-

man homered and had three hits


as the Nationals beat the Braves
11-9. 2B Daniel Murphy and OF
Trea Turner both homered as
part of an eight-run fourth inning
in which the Nationals had a
team-record nine hits.
Blue Jays: 1B Edwin Encarnacion hit his 35th homer of the
season to help the Blue Jays
defeat the Indians 6-5. Reliever
Roberto Osuna recorded his 28th
save one night after giving up a
game-winning inside-the-park
homer.
Reds: LHP Brandon Finnegan
held the Dodgers hitless through
six innings as the Reds rolled to
an 11-1 victory. Finnegan gave up
one hit and had eight strikeouts
but did not return after a 1-hour,
19-minute rain delay in the seventh.

LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES

A Little League star


goes a long way
A legend as a kid,
Todd Frazier made
it to the majors
surprising no one

Toms River, within a 10-mile


radius of Todds two older brothers Charlie Frazier was drafted
out of Toms River South in the
sixth round in 1999 by the Marlins
and spent six seasons in the
minors and his parents.
He talks to his best friend from
high school, Jordan Descafano,
almost every day.
Todds energy, his personality,
he never stops, Descafano said.
Not knowing him, youd think
this guy cant be real like this, but
that is how he is. Some people
might think hes doing it for show,
doing it for the media. But he is
genuine, a real person. He loves
baseball, he loves sports and he
loves his family.
My father said it best in 1998,
said Frank, whose nephew Brad
Frank was the catcher on the
world-championship team. He
said this kid is either going to
make it in Major League Baseball
or Hollywood, because he has an
awesome personality.

By Mike Helfgot

Chicago Tribune

he Little League legend


remembers the bus rides.
We were rocking,
screaming, getting wild
and crazy the whole time, he said.
Basically, it was, Here we come.
Were going to get you.
This particular Todd Frazier
memory is of the rides to the two
state-championship games his high
school team won rather than the
1998 Little League World Series
that introduced the smily slugger
to our baseball-loving nation.
White Sox personnel have frequently expressed an appreciation
for the positive vibes Frazier has
brought into the clubhouse and onto
the field in the two-time All-Stars
uneven first season with the team,
the youthful exuberance tempered by an even-keeled humility.
They are products of his childhood in the shore town of Toms
River the place he has never left,
the foundation of many of the
close relationships he maintains
to this day, the unofficial baseball
capital of New Jersey.
And, to a large extent, they were
learned in reverse order.
Frazier had celebrity thrust
upon him at age 12, becoming a
real American hero for a week,
anyway by leading Toms River
East American to the Little League
World Series championship.
He handled success with a
maturity far beyond his years yet
by all accounts remained grounded,
the same goofy kid he always was.
I was 12, Frazier said. At the
time I didnt know how big it was.
I didnt know the difference. And
my parents did a good job of
blocking all the other stuff out.
Then he got to Toms River
South High and really learned
how to play the game like a kid,
embracing the unorthodox, highenergy tactics of Ken Frank, the
man who holds the New Jersey
state record for coaching victories.
Kenny Frank instills in you a
sense of pride and the energy you
need to have to play this game,
Frazier said. Im one of those
guys who needs that. Kenny told
us, If youre not going to bring
energy and enthusiasm and emotion to this game, you are not going
to play.
Who wants to sit in the dugout
like a mope? If you are rooting
your team on, it means you are
talking, it means you are in tune to
the game.

Letter luck
The coach and his pitching sons
were thankful their last name
started with the letter G.
To prevent the kind of residency or boundary controversy
that later cost Chicagos Jackie
Robinson West the U.S title it won
in 2014, the Toms River East Little
League split up its participants
alphabetically.
Kids with last names starting
with A through J played in the
American, K through Z in the
National.
The leagues were composed of
just eight teams each there was
also another Little League on the
north side of the baseball-mad
town of fewer than 90,000 (in
2000) and each Toms River
East league had a traveling team
with its own charter, making both
eligible to compete for the Little
League World Series.
It used to be one charter, but
they split it into two in 1991, said
Mike Gaynor, who coached two
sons and two of the three
Frazier brothers on the Toms
River East American All-Star
team in the middle to late 90s.
They said, It gives more kids
an opportunity to play, but now
well never win anything.
The luck of the alphabet was
greatly underestimated.
Toms River East American
reached the Little League World
Series in Williamsport, Pa., three
times in a remarkable five-year
stretch.
It began in 1995 when Jeff
Frazier, who preceded younger
brother Todd at Toms River South
High and Rutgers and appeared in
nine games for the Detroit Tigers
in 2010, teamed up with Mike
Gaynors son Colin to form a lethal

Head games

CHRIS FAYTOK/NEWJERSEY.COM

Todd Frazier watches his leadoff home run sail out of the park in the 1998 Little League World Series
championship game against Japan. Frazier and his Toms River East American teammates won the title.

There was no
arrogance with Todd.
There was leadership.
Former coach Mike Gaynor
1-2 pitching punch.
Gaynors second son, Casey,
was a year younger and two grades
behind Todd Frazier in school.
I was just playing not to
disappoint him (Frazier), Casey
Gaynor said. He was the star. I
was in awe of him. It had been that
way since I was 8 years old.
The major leagues 2015 Home
Run Derby champion was a prodigious slugger from the start and a
slick-fielding shortstop to boot.
Frazier continued to excel at
shortstop in high school and
during his three years at Rutgers,
even playing the position through
Class A ball after he was selected
with the No. 34 pick in the 2007
draft by the Reds.
Casey Gaynor was something
too. He went on to lead the 99
team back to the U.S. championship game in Williamsport before joining forces with Frazier at
Rutgers, where he now is the
pitching coach.
Neither Gaynor nor Frazier was
the ace of the 98 team, but with
Scott Fisher unavailable to take
the ball in the state final after
going the previous game, Mike
Gaynor was faced with a difficult
decision.
Hesitant to simply choose his
son over his star, Mike Gaynor let
them pitch for it.
I had them both throw a
(simulated) game against our
team, and it became pretty clear,
Mike Gaynor said. I said, Todd, I
dont have a choice here, do I? He
said, No.
Gaynor pitched East to victory
in the state championship game,
and the rotation for the regionals
was set.
In the semifinals, Frazier led off
the game with an opposite-field
homer, and Gaynor did the rest in
a 1-0 victory.
Then with a trip to Williamsport on the line just one team
per region advanced in those days;
now its two Frazier and Fisher
opened the game with back-toback homers and Fisher pitched a
no-hitter in Easts 2-0 victory.
There was no arrogance with
Todd, Mike Gaynor said. There
was leadership. He would get on
guys cases when they werent

Run Derby, edging the Dodgers Joc Pederson 15-14 in the final.

going well. But nobody begrudged


him. He didnt put himself ahead
of the team. Without his leadership, without his play at short,
without all those big hits, were
not winning.

He never stops
Nineteen years after the fact,
the Gaynors may simply be tired of
talking about Fraziers legendary
performance in Williamsport that
week.
In addition to batting .600 with
four home runs in the LLWS and
going 4-for-4 with a homer in
Easts 12-9 victory over Japan in
the championship game, he was
the winning pitcher in relief even
though Mike Gaynor was afraid
to put him anywhere near the
mound.
Ask them what stands out
about Frazier during that week
now, though, and they will talk
about pingpong.
They had pingpong tables set
up where kids from all the teams
hung out, Casey Gaynor said.
They called it the barracks. Todd
became the legendary pingpong
player. He turned it into a big event.
He claimed he was the best
pingpong player, better than the
Japanese guys. It was hilarious.
He took a simple game and used it
to bond with guys from another
country who didnt speak the
same language.
And with a former major-leaguer on the ESPN broadcast team.

BRIAN CASSELLA/CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Frazier cranks a three-run


homer in the sixth inning of a
win over the Cubs on July 25.

He is a character, Mike Gaynor said. Here he is, a 12-year-old


kid, and he befriended Harold
Reynolds. Hes like, Come on,
Harold, Ill take you. You cant beat
me in pingpong. And theyre still
friends to this day. Harold was at
his wedding.
Frazier married fellow New
Jersey native Jacquelyn Verdon, a
former Rutgers gymnast, in 2012.
The couple built a home in

A Jersey City native, Frank


brought a North Jersey edge to the
then-developing shore town in
1970 and took over as Toms River
Souths coach in 1978.
His players start talking the
second they get on the bus and
never stop, they sprint on and off
the field, sail balls in all directions
during warmups and do everything they can to get under the
opponents skin.
Their heads are always expected to be in the game.
Kenny would surprise someone, Hey, whats the count?
Frazier said. If you didnt know,
you were taking a lap, running to
the foul pole and back. It would
keep you in tune to the game.
Hustle was a must.
Frank said the approach gives
his team a 1-0 lead before the
game starts, and he has a New
Jersey-record 875 wins and five
state championships.
He is the first to acknowledge
there isnt a place for the antics
and the head games in professional baseball, but theres no
denying their effectiveness on the
prep level.
You know when you go play
Toms River South that you have to
not only prepare for their batters
and their pitchers but their whole
show, said Millburn High School
(N.J.) coach Brian Chapman, who
was named national coach of the
year by the American Baseball
Coaches Association in 2015.
They try to create this atmosphere where they have you on
your heels. Theyll pull off a trick
play. They do a lot of things. Kenny
takes baseball to a high level, and
its mixed with this sort of in-yourface stuff that almost brings a
physical element to the game.

A kid at heart
Fraziers energy and enthusiasm were widely cited as culturechangers during the White Soxs
torrid 23-10 start this season.
He has 31 home runs, tied for
third in the major leagues, and his
rock-solid defense at third base, a
surprise to some, is just as Toms
River remembers it.
The Sox have gone a dispiriting
34-54 since their fast start, and
Frazier has battled to keep his
batting average above the Mendoza line he is hitting a careerworst .207. But his demeanor
remains the same.
You would never know being
in the locker room, being on the
field with him, rookie shortstop
Tim Anderson said. He talks to
me about anything, about my
daughter, and on the field hes
been great moving me because he
knows these hitters. I feel like I
can go to him about anything and
he will communicate with me.
Eighteen years after taking the
barracks in Williamsport by
storm with his pingpong paddle,
Frazier has had a similar effect on
the Sox clubhouse.
Frazier and fellow newcomer
Brett Lawrie invented a new game
near their lockers, recruiting
teammates to take part in a
soccer-basketball hybrid.
The rules were unclear and
irrelevant; the players bonded
while trying to deposit a ball into a
basket with their feet or heads.
He is 30 now, old friend Casey
Gaynor said, but he will always
be that kid.

Spartans looking to raise profile


Dantonios program
has enjoyed success,
but recognition lags

which ended the Buckeyes


winning streak at 23, looks
poised to take over.
Its the role I feel like I
was born to be in, OConnor told WXYZ.com. I
think its my time.
As Michigan State readies itself for what figures to
be a three-team race for Big
Ten East superiority with
the Wolverines and Buckeyes, Dantonio has his sights
set on improving his teams
stature in his 10th season.
Weve had success here.
We can sell that, he said.
With that being said, you
always need to aspire to be a
little bit better or go a little
bit farther. Thats the way
we need to be built here.
And thats the way theyll
keep on building, hype or no.
Dantonio said he wasnt
sure which was more difficult, sustaining the programs recent success or
building it to this point.
Either way, the goals
havent changed, a schoolrecord 10 straight bowl appearances notwithstanding.
What we want to do is
win a (national) championship, he said. The next
thing we want to do is prove
ourselves to be consistent
winners. I think were doing
that. But theres always that
next step.

Next in our college football


preview: Big Ten West.

Chicago Tribune

Mike Dantonios wife,


Becky, had three words of
advice for her husband: Get
over it.
The suggestion came after Michigan State was
spanked 38-0 by eventual
national champion Alabama
in a College Football Playoff
semifinal last season.
That game sort of got
out of hand, Dantonio said.
My wife tells me ... You
lost.
The Spartans didnt do
much of that last year. They
finished 12-2 overall, 7-1 in the
Big Ten and 6-0 in the East
Division, including a 17-14
victory at Ohio State with
their backup quarterback.
While the Buckeyes and
Michigan, thanks mostly to
Jim Harbaugh, hog a lot of
attention, the Spartans have
quietly reigned supreme in
the Big Ten in recent years.
Theyve won three conference titles since 2010,
though last seasons was
packaged with plenty of
hold-your-breath moments.
There were four threepoint victories against
Oregon in Week 2, against
Purdue three weeks later,

run with 27 seconds left.
Then there was the improbable four-point win at
Michigan the Spartans
seventh over the Wolverines in the last eight meetings on Jalen WattsJacksons return of a fumbled punt snap as time

expired. And a one-point


loss at Nebraska on a controversial touchdown pass
with 17 seconds to play.
But the taste of that
Alabama defeat still is bitter
to Dantonio, whose team
will try to rebound beginning Sept. 2 against Furman,
followed by games at Notre
Dame and against Wisconsin.
Its easy to walk around

when youve won, Dantonio said. More difficult


when youve had a loss and
you have to regain your
composure.
The Spartans suffered
another big loss after the
lopsided loss to Alabama.
Connor Cook, a fourthround pick of the Raiders,
was a three-year starting
quarterback who helped

the Spartans to two Big Ten


titles and holds school records for victories (34),
touchdown passes (71),
passing yards (9,194), total
offense (9,403 yards) and

The Buckeyes lost 16


starters and 46
players have never
played a down of
college football. Still,
nearly every Big Ten
team would trade its
roster for these young
Buckeyes, especially
ace quarterback J.T.
Barrett, who no
longer has to worry
about Cardale Jones.

Now that the Jerry


Sandusky-related
sanctions have been
lifted, James
Franklin can finally
coach without
limitations. Theyll
have a good chance to
succeed with most of
a strong defense
returning and a rising
star in running back
Saquon Barkley.

The Scarlet Knights


return 15 starters,
including defensive
tackle Darius
Hamilton, who is
back after missing
most of last season
with a right knee
injury. If the veterans
can learn new coach
Chris Ashs system
quickly, Rutgers might
surprise some teams.

The NFL exodus


means Joey Bosa will
no longer be drawing
triple teams from
offensive linemen and
defenses will no
longer have to load up
to try to contain
Ezekiel Elliott. Coach
Urban Meyer said
his team must have
efficient practices.

The Nittany Lions


went 7-6 in both of
Franklins first two
seasons, and he lost
three members of a
dominant defensive
line to the NFL plus
his quarterback. Now
Franklin must show
he is more than a
coach who can
recruit.

The schedule is brutal,


especially for a team
coming off a 4-8 season
with a new coaching
staff. Ashs welcome
includes trips to Ohio
State, Michigan State,
Minnesota and
Washington and
home dates with
Michigan, Iowa and
Penn State.

A year after leading


the Big Ten with 1312
sacks, Bosa finished
with just five in 2015.
But dont be fooled
and think there was a
talent drop-off. After
all, the Chargers
drafted him third
overall.

Quarterback
Christian Hackenberg
never reached his full
potential, but his
departure creates
uncertainty at the
position. Sophomore
Trace McSorley is
largely unproven and
being pushed by
redshirt freshman
Tommy Stevens.

The linebackers.
Rutgers has to replace
all three starters with
a group that has only
one start among its
members. Ash has
already recruited the
position hard, landing
three commitments
for 2017.

The Bosa family


produced another
potential Buckeyes
star. Incoming
freshman Nick Bosa,
a five-star recruit, is
more mature and
polished than Joey
was at the same age
but probably less
explosive.

Sophomore defensive
end Torrence
Brown could take
advantage of some of
those departures on
the line. He had only
eight tackles and 112
sacks as a redshirt
freshman, but his 6-3,
257-pound frame is
well-suited to rush
the passer.

Junior defensive end


Kemoko Turay
underwent two
shoulder surgeries
during the winter and
missed all of spring
practice, but if he can
return to the form
that made him a
2014 freshman AllAmerican (712 sacks),
he could be a boost.

REASON TO BELIEVE

The Hoosiers led the


Big Ten in total
offense, averaging
504.3 yards and 475 in
eight Big Ten games.
Junior receiver
Simmie Cobbs had
1,035 yards and four
touchdowns for the
high-scoring Hoosiers,
who also led the
conference with 36.5
points per game.

First-year coach DJ
Durkin has a solid
pedigree as the
former defensive
coordinator at
Michigan and Florida.
He also has former
Stanford colleague
Andy Buh leading
the defense and
former Virginia coach
Mike London coaching
the defensive line.

Jourdan Lewis is a
shutdown corner at
5-foot-10 and Jabrill
Peppers will be a
menace wherever he
lines up. Lewis
believes Michigans
receiver duo of Jehu
Chesson and Amara
Darboh is the nations
best. The offensive
line has three
fifth-year seniors.

Defensive tackle
Malik McDowell,
linebacker Riley
Bullough and safeties
Demetrious Cox and
Montae Nicholson
are ferocious. Playing
Michigan and Ohio
State at home wont
hurt the defending
Big Ten champs
either.
REASON TO DOUBT

The Hoosiers were


last in the Big Ten
in total defense,
allowing 509.5 yards
per game, including
313.8 through the air
while permitting a
59.5 completion
percentage. New
defensive coordinator
Tom Allen has his
work cut out.

The Terrapins return


just five starters on
defense, so those
coaches will need to
earn their paychecks.
Maryland was 11th in
the Big Ten in total
defense last year with
421.2 yards per game,
258.4 via the pass.

Theres uncertainty
and inexperience at
quarterback, where
Wilton Speight and
Houston transfer
John OKorn are
battling. And the
Michigan State, Ohio
State and Iowa games
are on the road.

Quarterback is in flux
with Connor Cook
gone. Senior Tyler
OConnor showed
some mettle while
filling in for Cook
during a 17-14 victory
at Ohio State. Junior
Damion Terry also is
in the mix. Whom
they might throw to
remains a question.
BIG HOLE TO FILL

Quarterback Nate
Sudfeld is gone, and
he took his 3,573 yards
and 27 touchdowns
with him. Juniorcollege transfer
Richard Lagow
is leading the
competition to see
who will throw to a
receiving corps that
includes Cobbs.

Maryland was 126th


in the nation in
passing efficiency last
season, with four
quarterbacks
combining for 29
interceptions. Seniors
Perry Hills and
Caleb Rowe are being
pushed by freshmen
Gage Shaffer and
Tyrell Pigrome.

Quarterback Jake
Rudock looked
average at Iowa but
blossomed into an
NFL prospect under
Jim Harbaugh.
Speight, a junior, is
savvy. OKorn has a
bigger arm and a
3,000-yard passing
season under his belt
in 2013.

Cook is Michigan
States all-time leader
in wins and passing
yards and led the
Spartans to the
College Football
Playoff last season.
The three-year
starter threw for
2,755 yards and 22
touchdowns for a 12-2
team.
BREAKOUT PLAYERS

Safety Jonathan
Crawford had four
interceptions a year
ago, tied for fourth
nationally among
freshmen. He also
had 76 tackles, a
sack, a forced
fumble and a
blocked field goal
while starting all
13 games.

Sophomore running
back Ty Johnson
gained 170 of his 250
yards in the first and
last games. He
averaged 7.1 yards per
carry but played
sparingly behind
Brandon Ross and
Wes Brown. Johnson
could emerge as the
biggest threat.

Tyrone Wheatley
Jr., son of the former
All-Big Ten running
back and current
Wolverines running
backs coach, is a 6-6,
280-pound tight end.
Hes stuck behind
Jake Butt and
others with more
experience for
now.

Linebacker Ed Davis
missed last season
because of a knee
injury. His return
for a sixth season
should be a big boost.
Bruising sophomore
LJ Scott led the team
in rushing last year
with 699 yards and 11
touchdowns and will
be leaned on heavily.
SEASON IS A SUCCESS IF ...

Indiana makes its first


back-to-back bowl
appearances
in 25 years. The
Hoosiers look to have
six or seven fairly
winnable games on
their schedule, which
begins with a trip to
Florida International
and home games
against Ball State and
Wake Forest.

The Terps can avoid


so many turnovers
and improve their
red-zone defense.
They had 36
giveaways last season
and turned it over
three times or more
in seven games to
finish with a minus-18
margin. They allowed
red-zone touchdowns
at an 80 percent clip.

Given the talent


exodus at Ohio State
and Michigan State,
its Big Ten title or
bust. Harbaugh
knows it, saying, If
nobodys laughing,
you havent set your
goals high enough.
(Actually, nobody is
laughing.)

The secondary can


cut down on big
plays. Michigan State
allowed at least 285
passing yards seven
times last year and
ranked 80th nationally
with 185 plays of
10-plus yards. Fix that
and the Spartans
could be looking at
their third Big Ten
title in four years.

Ohio States standards


are a blessing and a
curse. Meyer is 50-4
in Columbus, and
every loss is treated as
a tragedy. As star
center Pat Elflein put
it, Win every game
you play. The result is
that Meyers players
are hyperfocused but
also feel tremendous
pressure.

Penn State wins 10


games and plays in a
New Years Day bowl.
Winning a division
that includes Ohio
State, Michigan and
Michigan State might
be a reach for a team
trying to find its
identity, but Franklin
will feel pressure to
return the program to
a high level.

Rutgers finishes
.500. That would
be outstanding
considering the
difficult schedule,
departed players and
new offense but its
also not likely.

6 Irish players
arrested, 1 for
tackling officer
By LaMond Pope
Post-Tribune

Two weeks before Notre


Dame opens its 2016 football
season, the Irish face the
possibility of being without
several key pieces after six
players were arrested in separate incidents Friday night
and early Saturday.
Five players starting
safety Max Redfield, linebacker TeVon Coney, wide
receiver Kevin Stepherson,
running back Dexter Williams and cornerback Ashton
White were charged with
misdemeanor possession of
marijuana after a traffic stop
Friday, according to the Indiana State Police. Redfield,
Stepherson and Williams face
an additional misdemeanor
charge of possession of a
handgun without a license,
police said.
A sixth player, cornerback
Devin Butler, was arrested on
preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement and battery to a police officer, both
felonies, after an incident
early Saturday at a South
Bend, Ind., bar, according to
South Bend police.
According to court documents obtained by the South
Bend Tribune, the state will
have until Wednesday to decide whether to file formal
charges against Butler, who is
accused in the documents of
tackling and punching a police officer.
Notre Dame coach Brian
Kelly did not publicly address
either incident Saturday and
isnt scheduled to speak with
the media until Thursday.
The Irish last practiced Friday and arent scheduled to
do so again until Monday.

Paul Browne, the universitys vice president for public


affairs and communications,
released the following statement:
Any student arrested on a
felony charge also faces dismissal from the university.
The university will determine
if additional sanctions should
apply to any or all of the
students charged.
Butler, a senior from Washington, was expected to be
out until at least October after
breaking his left foot in June
for the second time in seven
months. He missed the Fiesta
Bowl against Ohio State on
Jan. 1 after breaking the foot
in practice.
The group arrested on the
marijuana charges, however,
included several players projected to play significant roles
when the Irish open the
season Sept. 4 at Texas.
Redfield, a senior and former five-star recruit from
California, was entering his
third season as a starter. He
was sent home from the
Fiesta Bowl for violating team
rules in the week before the
Jan. 1 game.
Coney, a sophomore from
Florida who had 13 tackles in
eight games last year, was
competing with Greer Martini and Asmar Bilal for a
starting linebacker spot.
Stepherson, a freshman
from Florida who enrolled in
January, had an impressive
spring camp and figured to be
a factor in a young receiving
corps.
Williams, a sophomore
from Florida who rushed for
81 yards and a touchdown on
21 carries in six games last
year, looked to be part of a
three-player rotation at running back.
White, a redshirt freshman
from Washington, didnt figure to receive much playing
time this season.

PHIL VELASQUEZ/CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Notre Dame senior starting safety Max Redfield was one of six
Irish football players arrested over the weekend in Indiana.

The players were traveling


in a 2007 Ford Focus through
Fulton County, Ind., about 35
miles south of South Bend,
when police stopped the car
shortly after 10 p.m. for allegedly speeding. The car also
had an improper headlight,
according to police. A trooper
allegedly smelled marijuana,
and using a drug-sniffing dog,
he found marijuana and a
loaded handgun, police said.
A spokesperson at the Fulton County Jail confirmed the
players posted bond Saturday.
Redfield, Stepherson and
Williams each had a $500
bond, and Coney and White
had $300 bonds.
Butler was arrested after
an altercation shortly after
midnight near the Linebacker
bar, according to South Bend
police Lt. Joe Galea. A fight
broke out between two women, Galea said. Police separated the women, and Butler
walked toward one of them
and shoved her, according to
court documents.
As police approached him,
Butler began using some
profanities and swinging at
officers there, Galea said.
According to the court documents, Butler tackled an officer and punched him in the
side and stomach several
times.

Butler was subdued and an


officer was treated for minor
injuries, Galea said. Butler
apologized while being transported to the St. Joseph
County Jail and said he was
incredibly emotional and intoxicated, according to the
court documents.
Notre Dames student paper, the Observer, first reported the Butler incident.
Kelly was expecting big
things from Redfield this season after inconsistent play
during his first three years.
He was third on the team
with 64 tackles last season.
I hate to throw cliches
around, but hes been that guy
that everybody was hoping
for out of high school, Kelly
said last week. Hes playing
at that level; hes at an elite
level.
After his suspension from
the Fiesta Bowl, Redfield
apologized on Instagram for
not being punctual.
Rules are instituted for a
reason and not following
them is unacceptable, Redfield wrote. I will continue to
learn and grow from this.

Farah pulls
2nd double
in a row
Associated Press

Mo Farah of Britain became


the first runner in 40 years to win
back-to-back long-distance doubles at the Olympics by taking
gold in the 5,000 meters.
Farah had won the 10,000
meters in Rio to go along with his
two golds from the same events in
London four years ago.
The last man to win both
distance races in consecutive
Games was Finlands Lasse Viren in 1972-76.
Farah won in 13 minutes, 3.30
seconds. Paul Chelimo of the U.S.
was disqualified for a line violation but then reinstated as the
silver medalist.
Earlier, Matt Centrowitz of
the U.S. held off Taoufik Makhloufi of Algeria at the finish line
to win the 1,500 meters.
Centrowitz won silver at the
2013 world championships and
took fourth at the 2012 London
Games. The last American to win
the mens 1,500 was Mel Sheppard in 1908.
Kenyan favorite Asbel Kiprop
fell halfway through the race and
could not get back into medal
contention. He finished sixth.
Allyson Felix won a womens
track record sixth gold medal,
anchoring the U.S. to victory in
the 1,600-meter relay. Her teammates were Courtney Okolo,
Natasha Hastings and Phyllis
Francis.
LaShawn Merritt anchored
the U.S. 1,600-meter relay team to
gold. Arman Hall, Tony
McQuay and Gil Roberts also
ran.
A U.S. first: Gwen Jorgensen
won the first triathlon gold by a
U.S. woman, finishing in 1 hour,
56 minutes, 16 seconds to beat
Nicola Spirig of Switzerland by
40 seconds.
The only other triathlon medal
the U.S. women have won was a
bronze by Susan Williams in
2004.
Short of the goal: Karch Kira-

lys top-ranked U.S. womens


volleyball team earned bronze,
beating the Netherlands 25-23,
25-27, 25-22, 25-19 after a five-set
loss to Serbia in the semis.
I wanted a gold medal to
almost prove ... the foundation
that weve built, almost to prove it
right that the way we did it was
right, captain Christa Dietzen
said.
Drought continues: Cubas Robeisy Ramirez won a split decision over Shakur Stevenson in
the bantamweight boxing final,
denying the U.S. its first mens
gold in the sport since 2004.
Hes young, and he has big
promise for boxing, Ramirez
said of Stevenson. It was hard to
fight him.
Stevensons silver is the best a
U.S. male boxer has done since
2004, when Andre Ward captured the light-heavyweight title.
Her biggest win: Inbee Parks
first victory of the season a gold
medal might be the biggest of
her career.
Park made three straight birdies early in the final round and
never let anyone closer than three
shots the rest of the way, shooting
a 5-under 66 for a five-shot
victory over Lydia Ko of New
Zealand.
Park had battled a thumb
injury all year that led to speculation she was going to retire.
A lot of people were saying
maybe it was better to have
another player in the field, Park
said. But I really wanted to do
well to show that I can still play.

RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS

Their final flourish

U.S. team members


pleased to have
broken new ground
By Stacy St. Clair
Olympic Bureau

RIO DE JANEIRO The


United States rhythmic gymnastics team finished last in the
Olympic qualifying round on
Saturday, leaving its five gymnasts crying as they walked off
the floor.
But those were happy tears.
Really.
By their very presence here,
the women who train in
suburban Chicago made history as the first U.S. rhythmic
gymnastics team to qualify for
the Olympics. And after dropping three ribbons in their first
routine, the women performed
cleanly in their second.
For nearly three minutes during the second round, they
tossed clubs and hoops in time
with a bouncy samba beat that
the Brazilian crowd appreciated.
It went so smoothly, in fact, that
judges placed the U.S. ahead of
error-riddled teams from Greece
and China in that phase of the
competition.
It wasnt enough to pull the
Americans out of last place
overall, but the Games always
offer more moral victories than
medals.
Once we finished with the
clubs and knew we had done it
cleanly, we let the emotions
flow, said Natalie McGiffert,
who lives in Northbrook. We
knew it was our last time
together, so we just let it all out.
The group formed four years
ago after the U.S. gymnastics
federation sent out an email
seeking elite gymnasts to try out
for a new national team. After a
long selection process, the five
athletes McGiffert, Monica
Rokhman, Kiana Eide, Alisa
Kano and Kristen Shaldybin
agreed to give up their individual
rhythmic aspirations to become
a team.
Still in their teens, they relocated to the Chicago area and
trained with former Belarusian
national team coach Natalia Klimouk at North Shore Rhythmic
Gymnastics in Deerfield. Rio
was not in anyones plans when
they arrived.
A U.S. team had not competed
at the Olympics since the Atlanta
Games in 1996, when it received
the courtesy berth given to all
host nations. The U.S. had never
qualified on its own merit.
We didnt have the Olympics
in mind when we first started,

U.S. rhythmic gymnasts react after completing their performance in


Saturdays qualifying round. They posted a team score of 30.224.

said Glencoes Kano, 21, the only


team member born when the
U.S. last competed in a Summer
Games. We were just taking it
day by day to see how it would
work out.
The women toiled in obscurity for seven hours a day, six days
a week, dedicating themselves to
a sport few appreciate or understand. Making fun of rhythmic
gymnastics has become an unofficial Olympic event in North
America, with its detractors insisting that no real sport could
possibly include a hula hoop or a
stick with a 6-meter ribbon on
the end.
Looking like a pastime enjoyed by the fairies in a Midsummers Night Dream the
Italian team, which is fourth
heading into Sundays final, is
known internationally as the
Butterflies rhythmic gymnastics combines ballet and
acrobatics with a bit of synchronized swimming on land.
The gymnasts spin, jump and
dance to music as part of a group
routine that can incorporate
ribbons, hoops, clubs and balls.
Rhythmic gymnastics requires as much hand-eye coordination as any sport in the
Summer Games, though that can
be easy to overlook when the
athletes are dressed with the
bedazzled subtlety of Eastern
European ice dancers. Rhythmic
athletes in the U.S. stand quietly
in the long shadow cast by
artistic gymnasts, their federation cousins who vault, flip and
appear on cereal boxes.
We hope being here helps

rhythmic gymnastics grow in


the United States, said Eide, 17,
of Northbrook. We want people
to see us here and think its fun to
watch.
The U.S. team qualified for
Rio after finishing 13th at the
world championships last year,
the highest placement of any
group from the Americas. The
team also medaled at the Pan
American Games in 2015.
The women have been working on their Olympic routines
since September, when they
learned the apparatuses involved in these Games would be
five ribbons in the first round
and six clubs and two hoops in
the second. They spent 11
months listening to the same
two pieces of music to prepare.
The Americans scored 30.224
points in Saturdays competition, more than 5.5 points behind
the top-finishing Spanish team.
It wasnt their highest score ever,
but it was enough to make for a
happy ending.
The team will disband after
these Games. Most members are
headed to college and ready to
put their competitive careers
behind them. Theyll stay in
touch, they say, through the
group text messages they constantly exchange now.
We werent really thinking of
scores or placements today we
just wanted to end on a good
note, McGiffert said. After four
years, were a project thats
finally complete.

RIO DE JANEIRO When


Brazils long nightmare finally
ended Saturday, the captain of its
soccer team dropped to his knees
and spread his arms in celebration.
If Christ the Redeemer is
Rios iconic emblem, the image of
a kneeling, sobbing Neymar, eyes
looking to the heavens, will be
how Brazilians remember the
citys Olympics.
When Neymars penalty kick
ended a five-round shootout with
Germany, it did more than give
Brazil its first Olympic soccer
title. It also gave the host country
something to celebrate.
Thats it, Neymar said. We
made history.
Celebrations broke out around
Rio, reminiscent of parties after
the five World Cup championships won by this soccer-mad
nation.
But like everything in these
Games, it didnt come easily for
Brazil, which was shut out in its
first two group-play games and
barely escaped elimination before
catching fire in the elimination
round.
In the final, Neymar opened
the scoring in the 28th minute
with an exquisitely placed free
kick just under the crossbar and
inside the near post.
Germany, which had embarrassed Brazil 7-1 on its home turf
two years ago in the most lopsided World Cup semifinal in
history, punched back 14 minutes
into second half after a poor
Brazil clearance resulted in a
turnover deep in its own end.
Germany worked the ball
around the perimeter until Jeremy Toljan sent a cross in from the
left wing for captain Max Meyer,
who found himself with ton of
space in the center of the penalty
area. From there it was an easy
finish for Meyers fourth goal of
the tournament and the first
Brazil allowed in six games.
Neither team scored again, but
Brazil had 10 shots in the second
half alone and four more in the
30-minute overtime. The teams
then matched goals through the
first four rounds of the shootout.
Two years ago, Brazil wilted
under the World Cup pressure.
Neymar was among those who
sobbed on the field during the
shootout win over Chile in the
round of 16, forcing the Brazilian
federation to call in psychologists.
That wasnt necessary this
time. After Brazilian goalkeeper
Weverton guessed correctly on
Nils Petersens attempt to start
the fifth round, diving to his left to
make a two-handed save, Neymar
calmly this time stepped up
and ended the game.
The only thing on my mind
was I had to do this, Neymar
said. I have fulfilled my dream,
and to have fulfilled it in my home
country makes me very proud.
I dont have words to say
anything. I cant describe my
feelings right now. I just want to
thank my teammates, my friends
and my family, who have been by
my side during the most difficult
moments.
It wasnt easy. I dont know
what else to say, Im just really
happy.

2016 TOTALS
Five medals
G: 4 | S: 0 | B: 1

A three-time-defending world champion entering


Rio, Biles, 19, led the U.S. womens gymnastics team to
a second consecutive gold medal before winning the
all-around title, then won gold medals in vault and oor
exercise and bronze in balance beam. She will carry the
ag for the U.S. at the closing ceremony Sunday. Its an
incredible honor to be selected, she said.

Usain
Bolt

Three medals
G: 3 | S: 0 | B: 0

Andre
De Grasse

Three medals
G: 0 | S: 1 | B: 2

The Canadian who took bronze in the 100-meter dash


was the only sprinter to challenge Usain Bolt in these
Olympics and got under the Jamaicans skin in the
process. With Bolt shifting into cruise control in a
200-meter seminal, De Grasse didnt let up and caught
Bolt down the stretch, the two smiling at each other as
Bolt leaned forward at the nish to win by .02 seconds.
I always want to push him, De Grasse, 21, said. But it
might have cost Bolt a chance to break his own world
record in the 200 nal. That was really unnecessary,
Bolt said after the semi. I dont know what he was
trying to do. De Grasse won silver in the 200, then
anchored Canada to bronze in the 400 relay after the
U.S. team, which had nished third, was disqualied.

Gabby
Douglas

One medal
G: 1 | S: 0 | B: 0

The 2012 Olympic all-around champion helped Team


USA win its second consecutive womens gymnastics
gold medal as a member of the Final Five. But Douglas,
20, was criticized harshly on social media for everything
from not placing her hand on her heart during the
national anthem to her appearance to her attitude
some even gave her the nickname Crabby Gabby. After
nishing a disappointing seventh in the uneven bars,
her last competitive event, she broke down in tears in
a secluded corner just off the competition oor of Rio
Olympic Arena. When they talk about my hair or not
putting my hand over my heart or being very salty in the
stands, really criticizing me, for me it was really hurtful,
she said.

Ashton
Eaton

One medal
G: 1 | S: 0 | B: 0

The American, 28, retained his title as the best allaround athlete in the world by tying the decathlon
Olympic record, becoming the rst back-to-back
champion in the event since Bob Mathias in 1948
and 1952. A tearful Eaton hugged his wife, Canadian
heptathlon bronze medalist Brianne Theisen-Eaton,
afterward. She was a massive inspiration to me, he
said. For us to have done this together, I cant word it.

Mo
Farah

Two medals
G: 2 | S: 0 | B: 0

The 33-year-old Brit won his second straight


10,000-meter title despite falling about 3,000 meters in.
He got up and had enough left for a strong nishing kick
that brought him to the line in 27 minutes, 05.17 seconds.
When I went down I thought, Oh, my God, thats it,
he said. I just got up and wanted to stick with the guys
and stay strong. Farah then completed the doubledouble, winning the 5,000 on Saturday.

Katie
Ledecky

Five medals
G: 4 | S: 1 | B: 0

Ryan
Lochte

G: 1 | S: 0 | B: 0

G: 0 | S: 0 | B: 0

Pita
Taufatofua

Zero medals
G: 0 | S: 0 | B: 0

The U.S. swimmer became only the second woman to


sweep the 200-, 400- and 800-meter freestyles. And
she saved her best for her last event, winning the 800 in
8 minutes, 4.79 seconds to smash her world record and
beat the second-place nisher by nearly 12 seconds.

Zero medals
G: 0 | S: 0 | B: 0

With about a mile left in the womens 3,000-meter


run, the American collided with New Zealands Nikki
Hamblin, and both runners fell hard to the ground.
DAgostino stood up rst, then went to Hamblin, put a
hand on her shoulder and said, Get up, get up. We have
to nish this. DAgostino helped Hamblin to her feet,
and both completed the race, Hamblin later returning
the favor by helping DAgostino up after she had fallen.
Said DAgostino, who suffered a torn ACL and meniscus
and a strained MCL in the collision: I dont think that
was me, I think that was literally the spirit of God in me,
like, Lets go.

Two medals
G: 2 | S: 0 | B: 0

The U.S. breaststroker made waves in and out of the


pool, calling out Russian Yulia Emova for twice being
banned for doping. Youre shaking your nger No. 1
and youve been caught for drug cheating, King, 19, said
in an interview after a 100-meter seminal. Im not
a fan. The Russian had shaken her nger as she was
loudly booed before and after her 100 semi. After King
won the 100 gold, she responded to a question about any
athletes including sprinter Justin Gatlin competing
for the U.S. despite having been banned for doping: Do
I think people who have been caught for doping offenses
should be on the team? No, they shouldnt.

Worlds fastest man. Times three. Bolt, 29, capped a


remarkable Olympic career by winning the 100-meter
dash in 9.81 seconds and the 200 in 19.78 seconds, then
anchored Jamaicas 400 relay to gold, turning a close
race into, well, a runaway. The three golds completed an
unprecedented triple-triple: He won all three events in
three successive Olympics. There you go, he said after
the relay, I am the greatest.

BOLT, PHELPS, BILES AND


13 OTHERS WHO DOMINATED
THE HEADLINES IN RIO
Compiled by the Olympic Bureau

Allyson
Felix

Three medals
G: 2 | S: 1 | B: 0

Bidding for an unprecedented fth Olympic womens


track gold medal, Felix was neck and neck with
Bahamian Shaunae Miller down the stretch in the 400
meters. Miller sprawled, dived and tumbled across the
line to beat Felix by .07 seconds. But Felix later won
that fth gold, as well as a sixth, anchoring two relays
to victory for her ninth career medal (three silvers). It
was just special, she said. Felix had been bumped in a
preliminary heat and lost the baton, but the U.S. team
protested and got a second chance a solo rerun that
allowed them to qualify on times.

That he added his 12th career medal second-most


in Olympic swimming history as part of the winning
400-medley relay team became an afterthought.
Lochte, 32, stained the Games by claiming he and
three teammates had been robbed at gunpoint by men
posing as police. Rio police later alleged that he and his
teammates had not been robbed but had stopped at a
gas station on their way home after a night out, damaged
a washroom and had a confrontation with employees.
Lochte apologized ve days after fabricating the story.

The 20-year-old American became the rst black


woman in Olympic history to earn an individual
swimming gold and the rst African-American woman
to win an individual swimming medal when she tied
Canadas Penny Oleksiak in the 100-meter freestyle.
Manuel broke down in tears when she recognized her
historic achievement, later saying the victory was extraspecial in the context of ongoing race issues in the U.S.
This win hopefully brings hope and change to some
of the issues that are going on, she said. Manuel won
another gold and picked up two silvers.

When you defeat a 16-time world champion to win the


rst gold medal ever by a U.S. womens wrestler, youre
allowed to celebrate. Maroulis, 24, did just that after she
stunned three-time-defending Olympic champion Saori
Yoshida of Japan 4-1 in the 53-kilogram freestyle nal.
Maroulis celebrated by running around the mat in a
circle and holding the U.S. ag with both hands while it
was draped over her back. At the end I was like, Really,
I just did this? Maroulis said.

The most decorated Olympian of all time entering Rio


added to his haul in what he promised would be his
nal Games. In his last race, Phelps put the U.S. ahead to
stay on the buttery leg of the 400-meter medley relay,
giving Phelps his 23rd career gold medal and 28th medal
overall. As a kid I set out to do something that nobody
had ever done before, Phelps, 31, said. I can look back
at my career and say: I did it.

While her U.S. teammates took the high road after a


stunning loss to Sweden in the soccer quarternals, the
veteran goalkeeper took another route. We played a
bunch of cowards, Solo, 35, said. The best team did not
win today. I strongly, rmly believe that. Solo was upset
that the Swedes spent much of the game with as many as
nine players in front of their own net.

The 32-year-old taekwondo competitor became the


Games rst star during the opening ceremony, bearing
the Tongan ag bare-chested and slathered in coconut
oil. I didnt quite realize (the sensation it caused) until
I got back on the bus and everyone was like, youre
trending in every major country in the world, he said.

Put Lochte saga aside, enjoy Rio Games for lasting memories
Haugh, from Page 1

Lochte lying to Brazilian police about being robbed at


gunpoint with three other U.S. swimmers indeed took
some focus away from the medal stand. But nothing can
ever take away the lasting memories these athletes created
for themselves and their countries or the sense of
accomplishment that accompanies the realizing of ones
potential.
Not even this stunt by Lochte could upstage Michael
Phelps. Athletes as committed as Olympians will
appreciate what they have achieved or experienced
regardless of the buzz surrounding their competition and
dont seek additional validation.
Any suggestion that Lochtes weeklong saga ruined
everything about the Games reveals an awareness of the
self-absorbed society that produced such narcissism.
It presumes world-class athletes care about how many
people notice their success, as if winning or feeling their
own satisfaction isnt enough. It follows an emerging
mindset in America, as if an event doesnt resonate until a
selfie is posted on social media.
Nobody in a country that stares at its phones so much
should be shocked to look up and see Lochte, a lout
motivated by all the wrong things, still acting at 32 like an
adolescent desperate for attention. Not in todays
look-at-me world. Someone in Lochtes inner circle of
enablers probably tried convincing him this could be good
for his Hollywood career.
In reality, with charges unlikely to be filed in Brazil, it all
becomes just noise. Once it dies down, everyones gold
medals will endure. As will the Olympic moments etched
indelibly in our memory that have nothing to do with
overserved young men peeing in a gas-station parking lot

Any suggestion that Lochtes weeklong


saga ruined everything about the Games
reveals an awareness of the self-absorbed
society that produced such narcissism.

and damaging property.


History more likely will record these Games most for
Phelps immortalizing himself with his record 23rd gold
medal. For buoyant gymnast Simone Biles becoming the
fourth woman to win four gold medals at one Olympics.
For another Simone Simone Manuel breaking down
in tears after breaking through a color barrier as the first
female African-American swimmer to win individual gold
in the 100-meter freestyle.
For ageless, audacious Usain Bolt making a persuasive
argument as the greatest sprinter ever by capturing golds
in the 100- and 200-meter dashes for the third straight
Olympics. For U.S. swimmer Lilly King calling out Russian
rival Yulia Efimova for being a drug cheat after beating her
in the 100-meter breaststroke and for Katie Ladecky
effortlessly establishing a world record in the 800-meter
freestyle by four seconds.
You didnt have to be cheering for the good, ol USA to
enjoy seeing Ethiopian runner Etenesh Diro qualify for the
3,000-meter steeplechase final after losing her shoe. Or Fiji
celebrate the small South Pacific island countrys first gold
medal by besting Great Britain in rugby, a victory that
moved Fijis prime minister to scrap plans to change his
countrys flag. Or the Bahamas Shaunae Miller dive across
the finish line to edge U.S. sprinter Allyson Felix by .07
seconds for the gold medal in the 400-meter dash. Or

American runner Abbey DAgostino exemplify the


Olympic spirit best by helping up New Zealands Nikki
Hamblin after they collided in a womens 5,000-meter
heat.
Some Chicago sports fans cared about the Olympics
only enough to wonder if Bolt could return kicks for the
Bears or whether Bulls star Jimmy Butler contributed to
Team USAs cause. But there was something inspiring from
an athlete every night while consuming NBCs jingoistic,
tape-delayed prime-time coverage.
Lochtes lies never can taint the Olympic truths those
kinds of images represent about sports and the spirit of
competition.
If you want to feel sorry for anybody adversely affected
by Lochtes lapse in judgment, pity the poor people of Rio,
who deserved more than to have a punk prey on the citys
bad reputation.
Chicago has no reason to regret missing out on the 2016
Games, not with so many urban issues a bigger priority
here, but Rio acquitted itself better than expected. Not that
crime concerns were unwarranted the mugging of the
Games security director and other isolated robberies of
athletes and media members showed the need to be
vigilant and gunfire at the equestrian center offered a
reminder of the inherent danger.
But overall, the disaster many feared and predicted for
Rio never materialized. The scare of the Zika virus
vanished. The polluted local waterways made a Belgian
sailor ill but interfered much less than expected. Low
attendance and doping issues plagued these Olympics, but
thankfully they will not be remembered as a Rio mess.
Nor should they go down as the Ryan Lochte Games.

TOP OF THE SECOND

Rio will be soon forgotten

Nothing fades
quite like an Olympic
moment. There it is.
Now its gone. Four years
later theres another one.
The tears and the
cheers, the anthems and
Bernie
the flags, the players and
Lincicome the pouters, the winners
and the losers come
together on a common clump of
quadrennial flypaper, stuck forever
together while the world goes back to
playing those picnic games that seemed so
essential for a while.
Mistrust and contempt resume their
familiar places in the world, not a bit
reduced by the amplified noise and
illuminated glory of jumping higher,
running faster or lifting more.
Not that these Games did much to
change opinions formed and firmly held:
that the Olympics are always absurdly
overblown and that Rio de Janeiro met its
obligation to prove how much.
What will happen to Rio, to the folks of
Brazil, to the starched landlords of
Olympism once the last samba is danced?
Theyll say, well, that wasnt so bad. Not
as bad as we thought it might be. Probably
all will figure they are better off than they
were, even if they are not.
All that clatter and color and commotion
had to be for something, didnt it? It had to
be for more than adding additional trinkets
to the treasures of Michael Phelps, more
than confirming soreheads such as Hope
Solo, more than scrambling to look up the
meaning of the word repechage.
But it was not. Not really.
It was its usual collection of obscure
competitions that require music, weapons,
oars or instructions and are given brief

If these Olympics were


supposed to raise Brazil
from the middle of the
third world to the bottom
of the second, well, at least
it now has a shiny new
velodrome and Paraguay
does not.

significance while the games that need no


introduction golf, tennis, basketball,
soccer humor their Olympic inclusion
while dreaming of bigger prizes.
Just to get more absurd, the Olympics
are adding skateboarding, surfing, rock
climbing and karate the next time around.
And bringing back softball to keep baseball
company.
An argument can be made that so much
deceit, exploitation and cost (an estimated
$12 billion, $4.6 billion over budget) makes
it hard to justify all of this in order for little
girls to dance with ribbons.
Look at it this way: Just because no one
reads poetry doesnt mean it should not
exist, though few poets, unlike medalwinning swimmers, are escorted off of
airplanes by cops as if they were fleeing
terrorists.
Whatever Rio wanted out of it to be
taken seriously, to be appreciated, to be at
least the capital of South America none
of that is likely to happen. The image is
ruined, and not the one we kept seeing under
Christ the Redeemers outstretched arms.

What was ruined is the image of a


serious contender for the global fraternity
of important places.
If these Olympics were supposed to raise
Brazil from the middle of the third world
to the bottom of the second, well, at least it
now has a shiny new velodrome and
Paraguay does not.
To say that Rio more or less pulled it off
is not to praise these Olympics but to
concede that things were not as bad as
expected. Its a little like leaving the dentist
relieved to have it over but in no hurry to
get back.
Still, little harm was done and maybe
some good. To those of us looking on, it
seemed most folks had a good time, and say
this for Rio: The pictures were marvelous.
The whole thing smacked of one great
photo op. Most Olympics do, but from this
distance it was easy to imagine the Games
taking place in front of a postcard.
There was no sense of the real Rio until
that rascally Ryan Lochte and his friends
punked the whole country. Suddenly a
frat-boy goof got exaggerated into an
international burp and the happy-go-lucky
Brazilians revealed just how thin their skin
really is.
The spokescop said Lochte owes Brazil
an apology. Apologies are as bogus as the
Olympic brand. And where to start?
Should Brazil apologize for chanting
Zika at American athletes or booing
foreigners in general or allowing the diving
pool to turn into a septic tank? As it was,
Brazil seemed to be apologizing for
something new every day.
Lets just all say sorry and forget any of
this ever happened.

No shirt, now no medal


The Tongan flag bearer who became
an unexpected sensation at the Rio
Games after marching shirtless into the
opening ceremony lost his chance for a
gold medal in the taekwondo
heavyweight division.
Pita Taufatofua, ranked 157th in the
world, had an unfortunate pairing in the
first round with the divisions No. 2
seed, Sajjad Mardani of Iran. Mardani
demolished Taufatofua 16-1 amid fans
chanting Tonga! in the arena.
Taufatofua described his opponents
attacking leg as a nightmare and said
his slow start in the fight cost him.
Taufatofua said he wasnt expecting
the enormous reaction to his
appearance in the opening ceremony
and hinted that he might have
something special but quick
planned for the closing celebration.
Dont blink or youll miss it, he said.

RIO DE JANEIRO Before he departed


for Rio, Jimmy Butler stressed that hed
spend his time in Brazil focusing on hoops.
Its a business trip, Butler said multiple
times before the U.S. played Venezuela in an
exhibition July 29 at the United Center.
But even on this business trip, Butler has
had a good time.
You can check virtually any social media
platform and see Butler clowning with his
new teammates. Or maybe you saw him on
NBC cheering on the U.S. beach volleyball
team.
The trip will be a success if Butler and the
U.S. can bring home a gold medal Sunday by
defeating Serbia.
On the court, Butler has seen his minutes
fluctuate he played just six in two games
and 24 in the quarterfinals against Argentina. But at least he hasnt suffered the fate
of Harrison Barnes and DeMar DeRozan,
who have been relegated to riding the
bench.
Butler said he has not cared what his
playing time or stat sheet has looked like.
For the record, Butler hasnt had the easiest
time scoring, shooting just 34 percent and
averaging 6.1 points per game.
Its all good, man. As long as we win,
Butler said. Im content. Im happy with it.
Its different for everybody thats wearing
this jersey. We talked about it at the
beginning of this thing, you have to give up
something to be a part of this team. As long
as youve got that one goal to win the gold
medal, were fine. Everybody will be
remembered for being on this team.
Butler said the team has bonded in the
short time it has played together. In
particular, Butler has become friends with
Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, who is
also from the Houston area.

Multiple gold medalist


Simone Biles will carry
the U.S. flag and lead
the American
contingent into
Maracana Stadium for
Sunday nights closing
ceremony, it was
announced Saturday.
Biles was chosen by a vote of fellow
Team USA members. She won team and
individual gold medals in the
all-around, vault and floor exercise. She
also won a bronze on balance beam.
Its an incredible honor to be selected
as the flag bearer by my Team USA
teammates, Biles said in a statement.
This experience has been the dream of
a lifetime for me and my team, and I
consider it a privilege to represent my
country. I also wish to thank the city of
Rio de Janeiro, and the entire country of
Brazil, for hosting an incredible Games.
Biles is the second gymnast to serve
as Team USAs flag bearer. In 1936, Al
Jochim led the U.S. delegation in the
opening ceremony.

Jimmy a lot, but in Las Vegas (for camp) just
to be able to kick it with him every day,
weve definitely grown so much closer. I
definitely will say hes one of my close
friends now.
Butler has made some new friends while
reuniting with an old one, former Bulls and
current Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau, who is an assistant for the U.S.
Everybody knows thats my guy, Butler
said. Everybody knows what hes done for
me and my career and just being around
him, talking to him (is great) because I cant
do it when the season starts. I have to get in
all my jokes and laughs with him right now.
You might hear Thibodeau drowning out
the announcers on your TV set when he is
barking defensive orders from the bench.
Butler said he didnt have to warn anybody
on the team about Thibodeaus vocal
prowess.
Theyve seen him coach, he said.
Theyve heard him coach. Everybody here

He said it has been great being able to

The way hes grown each year to go
from being a rotation player to a starter to
the point where he is now, it says a lot about

After U.S. cruises to 6th straight gold,


its fair to ask if this is best team ever

Gold just a start


for Delle Donnes
Olympic future

By Chris Hine
Olympic Bureau

Teddy Greenstein
On basketball

RIO DE JANEIRO The gold


medal was securely draped
around her neck, but Elena Delle
Donne kept fiddling with it,
asking herself: Did this really
happen?
Yeah, I kept looking at it, she
said. Is this real life? Oh, my
goodness, somebody pinch me.
Its real, and so was the
American dominance in this
Olympic tournament.
All thats left to debate, and its
not worth the time, is whether
U.S. coach Geno Auriemma was
being genuine when he said after
his teams 101-72 blowout of
Spain: It wasnt a cakewalk; it
was a struggle. Because of our
depth and experience, we were
able to separate ourselves.
Delle Donne helped provide
the depth that resulted in 55
bench points, 32 more than the
Spaniards.
The reigning MVP of the
WNBA averages 34.1 minutes for
the Sky, eight more than anyone
else on the team. For Auriemmas
band of experienced superstars,
she was a role player.
Right from the beginning, she
blended right in, Auriemma
said. Everyone knows that
Elena is one of the most talented
players in the WNBA, but she
had never really played
internationally at this level.
Shed only made one tour with
(USA Basketball), to Spain.
We talked a lot about
expectation level, and we wanted
to be able to trust her. Obviously,
you see the talent.
The 6-foot-5 Delle Donne
played 16 nearly flawless minutes
Saturday, hitting all three
field-goal attempts, including

contact. She drew some oohs
when she swatted a shot by
Spains tall and talented Astou
Nador.
Delle Donne scored 10 points,
grabbed four rebounds and had
two assists and no turnovers.
But asked for her favorite
individual highlight, she replied:
A couple of those 3s Diana
Taurasi was hitting. I just had to
laugh and shake my head. I
idolized her growing up, and to
be able to play alongside her and
see some of that craziness that I
saw when I was a young kid
falling in love with the game, that
was really cool for me.
Team USA assistant coach
Doug Bruno, the head coach at
DePaul, would have appreciated
that line. A few minutes earlier,
he had disclosed why he believes
this team is so special: For as
talented as this group is, they are
so selfless.
Delle Donne, 26, had a nice
hug for Bruno after the game.
She walked off the floor with
Maya Moores arm around her
shoulder. While Tina Turners
(Simply) The Best played in

Carioca Arena 1, teammate


Brittney Griner lifted her into the
sky.
Told that the photo of that lift
was making the rounds on social
media, Delle Donne responded:
Oh, thats sweet. This being our
first Olympics, it really meant the
world to us to share that moment
together. Hopefully well see
some more.
Said Griner: I love playing
with E. Shes amazing.
Asked if the two would
emerge as leaders over the next
four years, Griner replied: Well
step into those roles, but there
are definitely players in front of
us. We just got our diapers off.
Maybe, but the adult world
beckons. Delle Donne figures she
will get one day off once she
returns to Chicago. Then its
back to practice with the Sky,
preparing for Fridays home
game against the Atlanta Dream.
Yes, the Dream awaits.
But the reality is even better.
This, she said of her gold
medal, is amazing.

RIO DE JANEIRO The


celebratory hugs had almost
ended in the wake of Team USAs
101-72 victory over Spain when
Diana Taurasi went back over to
coach Geno Auriemma for one
final embrace.
Neither could hold it together.
Taurasi wiped away tears while
Auriemma had to remove his
glasses and patted at his eyes.
Not bad for two immigrants,
Taurasi said she told Auriemma.
Even when you rip through an
Olympics beating opponents by
an average of 37.3 points per
game, theres still a sense of
accomplishment and emotion.
So it was for this U.S. womens
basketball team, which collected
its sixth consecutive gold medal
Saturday at Carioca Arena I.
It was a historic team with
three members Taurasi, Sue
Bird and Tamika Catchings
who joined Lisa Leslie and Teresa
Edwards as the only four-time
gold-medal winners in Olympic
basketball, mens or womens.
The only question to answer was:
Is this team the greatest womens
basketball team of all time?
Were at a really high level
that maybe no one has ever seen
before, Auriemma said.
Added Taurasi, who finished
with 17 points: I would think so.
Im not just saying talentwise. Im
not saying (because of ) margin of
victory. This is the most determined, unselfish team Ive ever
been on, hands down.
This years Olympics could be a
demarcation point in the program. It could be the last Olympics for Bird, Taurasi and Catchings and could be the last time
Connecticuts Auriemma will get
to coach Taurasi and Bird, both
former Huskies. You might
understand why there were tears.
They now will likely cede
ownership of the team to younger
players like first-time Olympians
Elena Delle Donne, Brittney
Griner and Breanna Stewart.

86-50 over France in 2012
101-72 over Spain in 2016

You dont want to see them


go, Griner said. I told them
theyre not going anywhere. They
better be back. I told them they
cant leave. You just want to keep
the legacy going.
Auriemma said it was hard to
put into words what the three
veterans have meant to womens
basketball in the U.S.
There are some things they do
that you just cant even describe,
Auriemma said. I think the
attitude and the example they set
is probably one that the next
group is going to benefit from
more than anything else.
Maya Moore, who won her
second gold medal, is part of that
next group and she was an
integral part of this group as well.
She scored 14 points to help the
U.S. during a 16-3 run that put the
game away in the second quarter.
The U.S. may not have challengers who can hang with them
for a full 40 minutes. But future
U.S. teams are always going to
have this team and the ones that
came before it as the measuring
stick for how good they really are.
Its because of the shoulders
that we stand on, Moore said. A
lot of people came before us to
give us the opportunities to play
and have our dream. Not just to
have a chance, but to have a
chance to be better than we
couldve ever imagined.
Good enough to bring some to
tears.

Gene Tunney, both fighter and thinker


Rick Kogan

Sidewalks
In our celebrity obsessed world there so
many people craving fame
that it is refreshing to learn
about Jay Tunneys father
who was, for a time, one of
the most famous men in
the world and hated it.
His name was Gene
Tunney and he was a
boxer, the heavyweight
champion of the world
from 1926 to 1928, a man of
movie-star good looks and
married to an heiress.
He never talked about
his boxing when I was
young, says Jay. I had no
idea of that part of his life,

his fame, until one day our


family went to see Roy
Rogers.
It was during World
War II at Madison Square
Garden. I was 7, maybe 8
and Roy was my hero.
When he rode into the
arena I was in awe. Then
all of a sudden there was a
spotlight on us in the
stands and Roy pointing in
our direction. He introduces my dad, who stands up
in his Navy commanders
uniform and waves. There
was a thunderous applause.
That story is not included in Jay Tunneys
magnificent, revelatory
and fascinating book, The
Prizefighter and the Playwright: Gene Tunney and
Bernard Shaw. But there
are dozens of other stories,
dozens of famous characters and at the books heart

JAY TUNNEY PHOTO

Jay Tunney, right, in a 1970 photo with his father, the former World Boxing Champion Gene Tunney.

there is genuine love story


and a tale of deep friendship.
Jay Tunney spent more
than 10 years researching
and writing the book.
All during that time I
couldnt believe what I was
finding, he says.

His father was born


James Joseph Tunney in
1897, one of the seven children and the eldest son of
Irish immigrants; a brother
gave him the nickname
Gene and it stuck. The
father John worked as a
stevedore and raised the

family in a down-at-theheels section of Greenwich


Village.
Jays word for his dads
youthful circumstances is
hardscrabble, which
seems insufficient to describe nights when (Gene)
cried himself to sleep. It
didnt matter that other
Irish fathers used a whip,
too, because he knew that
some fathers never did,
Jay writes. The diversity
of Genes reading and his
ability to withdraw into his
imagination became essential to his withstanding
his fathers outbursts.
Words became his refuge.
His love of words also
brought him derision and
scorn, for they did not fit a
boxers image.
Gene boxed a bit as a
boy and took up the sport
seriously while serving
with the Marine Corps

during World War I. He


turned professional in 1915
and whipped all comers,
losing only once before
claiming the heavyweight
title by defeating champ
Jack Dempsey by unanimous decision in Philadelphia in 1926.
He was more tactician
than slugger and he read
books and a boxer who
spent his spare time reading books was not to the
taste of the sportswriters of
the time because, Jay Tunney writes, Most sports
celebrities were easy to
write about because they
tended toward extravagances with women, gambling, alcohol, temper
tantrums, problems with
their managers, with money, or tangles with the law.

Renee Hlozek, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Toronto, was among the competitors. . Hlozek sang about the death of the universe.

PHYSICS, from Page 1

tory, offered no cash award, no trophy. Just bragging rights. The one
rule: There were none.
So beneath the outward congeniality among its contestants, lay naked
competitive instinct. And an outside
possibility of relating particle physics
theory to everyday schmucks. No
easy feat in a country where, not a
month earlier, the Democrat nominee
for U.S. president felt compelled to
assure her faithful: I believe in science.
Hlozek is a professor of astrophysics at the University of Toronto. She
wore a bustier and black chiffon
dress; she resembled a steampunk
songstress. She had done improv
while a student at Princeton and sang
a bit in high school. Also, she studied
physics at Oxford University on a
Rhodes scholarship. But I have done
nothing like this, she said as music
from another performer, an astronomer at the University of Chicago,
boomed through the conference hall.
Hlozek said: I will be performing an
upbeat cabaret about the death of the
universe and how it will consume us
all. She explained that she had just
gone through a break-up. She wrote
the lyrics with her ex-boyfriend in
mind. After her soundcheck, a tech
guy approached and said he had
recently gone through a bad breakup. This gave her confidence: See,
space doesnt care about our problems, the universe doesnt have feelings. The death of the universe is
coming for rappers too.
A thin curtain separating the ballroom from the back of the hall wafted
in a draft, and behind it, the conference itself: scientists, seated before
cardboard displays, peddling highvoltage supplies, discussing cryotronics and microchannel plate detectors;
picture a science fair without the
baking-soda volcanoes. Students
from Franklin Park three in Tshirts reading A Moment of Science,
Please, one wearing a Lollapalooza
pin walked past these exhibits to
the ballroom, pulled in on the promise of a Physics Slam.
Surrounded by rows of empty
seats, Pier Benci watched rehearsal
with a calm smile. Students filed
through. Benci was small and wore a
crisp pinstripe dress shirt and his
accent was Italian. He was there on
circuit board business. Without
something like this, he said, waving
to the stage, in the direction of the
students, no science! Maybe in 1900
it was manageable! But today, at least
to do particle physics, you need billion-dollar machines, institutions
who support it. Without interest and
money no science!
A brief history of the universe: In
1799 the Royal Institution in London
was founded (and continues today) so
scientists had a place to explain their
work to ordinary people; it was wildly
popular entertainment (centuries
ago). Later Stephen Hawking was on
The Simpsons. Astrophysicist Neil
DeGrasse Tyson used pop culture to

explain space. Other stuff happened.
Generally, the relationship between
scientific theory and the public remained like two people who went on
a bad date then later see each other at
a party. In 2013, when Peter Higgs
learned he won the Nobel for predicting the Higgs Boson particle, the
particle that explains how other
particles hold mass, he was trying to
skip town, to avoid the spotlight of
impending attention.
The Windy City Slam was a small
attempt at righting such awkwardness. It spun out of the Physics Slam
held for the past four years at the
Department of Energys Fermilab,
outside Batavia itself inspired by a
2009 Physics Slam at the Max Planck
Institute for Physics in Germany. The
first year at Fermi, Stuart Henderson,
now deputy associate lab director of
particle accelerators at Argonne, won,
using Homer Simpson to explain a
project that used accelerators to clean
up nuclear waste. The next Fermi
Slam will be this fall. But Andre

Salles, who oversees community


relations at Fermi (and organized the
Windy City Slam), said its hard to get
scientists to participate, to see value
in communicating this way. Partly
because competition, increasingly, is
not taking Physics Slams lightly.
Backstage, minutes before the
Slam began, Chicago weatherman
Tom Skilling, the MC for the event,
watched in the dark as MC Truth
(Chris Marshall), the winner of the
2015 Fermilab Physics Slam, hopped
in place and rapped intensely to himself in a whisper, eager to get out
there and defend his title. Skilling
looked away. He had never heard of a
Physics Slam, he said, but felt it was
his duty to take part. In an era where
science is questioned by more and
more people, where people online do
nothing but question science
where do these people think the
technology came from to make computers?
Beside him, Clara Nellist, a particle
physicist working on the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, adjusted
the camera on her shoulder. She
would be explaining how to picture
particles. She said: I am not a natural
performer. She laughed at her
understatement. But its the publics
right to have this information, as
clearly as possible. And yet she
glanced at a group of children in the
dark fitting aluminum to their heads
I will not rap and I dont have cute
children.
Mariel Pettee, a Ph.D. physics
candidate at Yale (whose physics
thesis at Harvard used choreography
and dancers), had cute children,
recruited from parents of colleagues,
outfitted with shirts explaining the

kind of particle they were. She knelt


before a particularly adorable child:
At judging, when we go out there,
your job is The kid nodded: Just
be cute.
Right, be cute, Pettee agreed.
About 650 people attended (the
ballroom holds 1,400). The audience,
equal parts locals, curious tourists
and physicists, chuckled at Hlozeks
apocalyptic torch stylings; warmly
appreciated Dan Hooper, the U. of C.
astronomy professor, whose soul
band (with two-piece horn section)
sang of the mysteries of dark matter.
Nellist, who gave a thoughtful, nofrills lecture, took an audience selfie
(Say Boson !) But Marshall, as a
rapper, had little flow. And Pettee,
whose muddled sketch about electrons played like bad silent comedy,
relied too heavily on cute. Nevertheless, the competition, as expected,
came down to them, a rapper and
child actors. Skilling, using an iPad
app, asked for applause after each act
was reintroduced. That kid was cute.
Pettee won. As the crowd left, reaction was muted, the kind seen after
the Oscars when a well-meaning film
no one likes wins.
The universe, and conference,
spiraled onward. Hlozek suggested
the audience wasnt ready for a heady
mix of self-deprecation and scary
truths. Marshall promised next year
would be different. Had he been
distracted, having to perform right
before he was scheduled to defend
his thesis at the University of Rochester? Next Physics Slam, he would not
pull punches: He would hire an 8year old backup singer.

Paul Gallico put it at the time:


The average pug, when he
lets down, gets roaring drunk
or takes to sitting up all night
pounding night-club tables
with little wooden mallets,
reaching hungrily for the
powdered nakedness of the
girls that march by.
Tunneys most famous fight
and arguably the most famous
heavyweight fight in history,
took place here Sept. 22, 1927,
in Soldier Field, in front of a
crowd of 120,000 (creating
the first $2 million gate in
entertainment history) with
millions more listening on
radios. In the seventh round
of the fight that would become known as the Long
Count, Tunney hit the canvas
for the first time in his career.
Dempsey did not retreat to
the neutral corner for five
seconds before the referee
started the 10-count. Tunney
was able to get to his feet
before 10 and went on to
win the fight. (Judge for yourself at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5rDUbO4NSc).
Tunney would fight and
win once more and then retire, becoming the first and
only heavyweight champ to
ever do so, until Rocky Marciano joined this exclusive club
in 1956.
He did this in large part to
escape the insults and prying
eyes of the press, which became almost unbearable after
he fell in love with and began
courting Polly Lauder, a beautiful heiress. It didnt take
long for the press to figure out
that Gene was in Maine with
his betrothed. An armada of
reporters followed, Jay Tun-

ney writes.
I cant imagine how awful
it was for them, says Jay, one
of the couples four children;
his brother John served as a
U.S. senator from California in
the 1970s. My mother was
the most private woman I
have ever known.
Their marriage in Rome
was, Tunney writes, the
biggest love story of the year.
In their pre- and postwedding travels, the pair met
all sorts of celebrated people,
from the Prince of Wales to
Hemingway, Fitzgerald and
Thornton Wilder. And when
Gene and Polly were in London, they were invited to

lunch by George Bernard


Shaw and his wife.
Shaw, some 40 years older
than Tunney, was a literary
heavyweight: a widely influential and prolific playwright
(Pygmalion, among dozens)
and critic, he had been awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1925. He had also done
some boxing as a younger
man, written boxing commentary and also a novel
about a boxer, Cashel Byrons
Profession.
The couples hit it off and
became especially close the
next year when they spent a
month and coped with Pollys
serious illness on the island of

Brioni. They remained close


friends until Shaws death in
1950.
Gene Tunney would have a
successful career as a
businessman, lecture about
writing, serve as a Navy commander and read, read, read
until his death in 1978. By that
time, sportswriters had become kinder, as in this from
Pulitzer Prize-winning sports
columnist Jim Murray:
(Gene Tunney) was unloved,
underrated, shunned by his
own people, rejected by history. Still, he was the best
advertisement his sport has
ever had. He was like no
Irishman you ever saw, but he

was the greatest Irish athlete


who ever lived.
The Prizefighter and the
Playwright was published in
2010, with Jays mother
playing a supportive role until
her death at 100 in 2008. A
couple of years ago, Jay, who
spent his life as a successful
globe-trotting entrepreneur
and writer of articles and
essays, moved here to be
closer to his grown children
and their families. He and his
wife live in a handsome Near
North Side apartment. She is
Kelly Smith Tunney, a former
Vietnam correspondent for
the Associated Press and later
the first woman vice president in the history of that
venerable worldwide news
organization.
They are, of course, surrounded by his dad, alive in
paintings, photos, boxing
gloves and other memorabilia. Jay spends his days reading and in other cultural
pursuits. Hes writing too,
working on a play about his
father in collaboration with
accomplished local playwright Doug Post. They hope
to have it on a stage next year.
Dont mean to butt into
that process but they might
want to somehow include
something Gene Tunney
wrote. He didnt do much
writing but he wrote this:
Friendship is the most satisfying connection in life. No
man can go very far with
strength and courage if he
goes alone through the struggles of life. There never was
constituted a human heart
that did not at some time, in
some long and yearning hour,
long for sympathy.

Dear Olympic media: Tough job


Chris Jones
NEW YORK Times Square
seems the most unlikely place in
the world for an anti-media
critique. But high above the
summer-tourist madness play
images of female Olympic athletes. With a message.
Dear media, it reads, as the
visiting hordes watch scenes of
athletes playing tennis, beach
volleyball and gymnastics. It is as
if the sentiment is being voiced
by the competitors themselves.
When you focus on an athletes
looks, it goes on, you dont see
her at all.
As anyone who has been
watching the coverage in Rio
knows, there has been ample
evidence of commentators at the
Olympic Games doing precisely
that.
There has been speculation as
to whether the swimmer Katie
Ledecky swims like a guy,
praise has been given to a husband for his wifes achievements
in the pool and, as the smart
commentator Christina Cauterucci noted for Slate, a hapless
NBC marketing executive got in
trouble justifying tape-delayed
broadcasts and puffy, prepackaged narrative features. Revealing a little too much of how the
sausage is made, the man said
that since more women watch
the games than men, the journey thus matters more than the
results.
Add a lot of talk of gymnasts
being Americas Sweethearts, to
the annoyance of Tribune columnist Heidi Stevens, and you
have ample reasons for a billboard in Times Square calling it
all out. But it does so with surprising vagueness, referencing no
specific publications for its
charges of sexist language, but
instead Pop Culture Site and
Major Newspaper. You dont
see people demur like that on
Facebook. They shout out the
villains.
This is because this billboard
actually is an advertising campaign itself an Olympic installment of Doves #MyBeauty-

PATRICK RAYCRAFT/TNS

A control room at the NBC Sports Network is awash in images during


the networks coverage of a U.S. womens Olympic basketball game.

MySay promotion. Dove, a skin


care company, is owned by Unilever. Unilever has lawyers.
So there you have an interesting question is it legitimate
for a corporation to sell its beauty
product by positioning itself as
an entity that attacks the sexism
of sports broadcasts?
You could argue in favor of
Dove on the grounds that they
are doing social good as they sell
their stuff. (Unilever, one of the
biggest advertisers in the world,
has publicly committed to eradicating sexism in its advertising.)
Or you could just as easily mount
the counter-argument that a
campaign that begins with a vox
populi line like Dear media, and
uses second person, is duplicitously implying a groundswell of
ordinary folk it is a simulation
of Facebook-like outrage that
should be unsullied by commerce.
Hey, everyones a media critic
these days. Even people using
big-time media in Times Square
to sell their stuff.
Welcome to an Olympics
where it has been incredibly
difficult to tell what is real and

what is mere branding in the way


that branding must now be carried out.
Were the American swimmers
genuinely robbed in Rio, only to
run headlong into the interest of
the Brazilian authorities in promoting the safety of the Olympic
city, and thus resisting that narrative? Or was there American
fictionalized storytelling at work,
as the evidence suggested at the
time of this writing? Clearly,
Olympic athletes dont just get
stereotyped. They are capable of
stereotyping an entire South
American city to put themselves
at the center of their story.
Did Zac Efron, whose appearance in Rio to visit with his superfan Simone Biles and the
other members of the so-called
Final Five, show up merely out of
genuine fandom, or were all
those photos staged for the golden publicity value thereof? For
both parties?
What about the People magazine spread that followed, replete
with the conflict of a rival Brazilian boyfriend telling Efron to
back off on Twitter? Was this not
merely another joking example

of what Dove was supposedly


critiquing the experience of
the greatest gymnast ever viewed
through the lens of two possessive young men? But then,
who can tell where Unilevers
interests start and finish? They
sure spend a lot of money advertising in People.
The Olympics are a fascinating
crucible for that age-old mix of
celebrity, story and brand, not
least because they manufacture
so many new celebrities, by shining spotlights on sports and
athletes to whom most Americans only pay attention every
four years, and because they are
sold through, well, their journey.
It is a crucible that puts athletes with a lot of hard-won
experience when it comes to
image Michael Phelps, say
on the same footing as newbies
who are out there rogue-tweeting and on Facebook without
advisers. Four years ago, it was
enough to put gold medal winners on a box of cereal after their
games. Now those who hope to
profit from those achievements
have to pay attention to what
people are saying about their
clients, and potential clients, on
social media. Now, everything
has to look organic. And that
means the actual organic moments of the games get harder
and harder to recognize.
Some survived. There was the
inimitable, malice-free confidence of the incomparable Usain
Bolt, whose humor is merely one
weapon in an astonishing quiver
of talents, as he took time during
his 100-meter triumph to look
back on the also-rans. Who could
have faked the mutual kindness
of the runners Abbey DAgostino
and Nikki Hamblin? How about
the dry, unfiltered humor of the
Irish rowers Paul and Gary
ODonovan, whose non-branding
actually branded them better
than almost anyone else in a
moment in the culture when
unfiltered spontaneity has never
been more dangerous and thus
never more prized?
Of course, the Rio Olympics
really have been the first to feature such a plethora of real-time
critiques of broadcast comments,
a consequence of the number of
writers now with beats like that
of Cauterucci, as well as the
availability of Facebook for ev-

eryone else. In years past, the


improvised yakking of announcers and experts did not
receive such scrutiny. Now it
does. This is a good thing, although you have to sympathize
with the professional air-fillers,
hired for their expertise more
than their narrative skills, yet
obliged by their bosses, who are
obliged by the advertisers, to
come up with emotionally engaging stories.
These poor souls have to move
us and keep us watching without
lapsing into objectification (this
despite the focus of many events
on the physical body and its
machinations). They also cant
fall into any of the tired tropes of
the rise-to-glory genre, the fallback for generations of Olympic
sportscasters, peppered with
some good old United States
versus the communist bloc conflict (that, alas, abides). Similarly,
the athletes themselves demonstrably dont know what plays
well. DAgostino and Hamblin
were widely praised, but the twin
German runners Anna and Lisa
Hahner were criticized for holding hands across the finish line,
despite their training together
and being well out of any medals.
Whod have anticipated that?
The apparent contradiction is
indicative of how competition
now has a very complicated
relationship with an Olympics
sold on storytelling; much depends on who gets to the megaphone first. And athletes have
stuff to do.
All that, and there now are a
billion media critics in their
living rooms, ready with the
angry tweet after one blurted
stumble. Tough gig.
Bob Costas seems to be the
only one who knows how to
navigate these waters. Experience pays, but its mostly because
he knows how to throw the joke
on himself, how to slow up, find
the context, quiet things down,
how not to talk down, how to
focus on the actual results this
just in, they matter to everyone
and also to tell a story.
Its been an impressive performance. He deserves an exception from Dove.

Stranger Things pulls actor into its orbit


DePaul grad Joe Keery nabbed
his first major TV role in the
Netflix summer hit
By Morgan Greene

The waiter does a double
take when he gets to our
table at the Heartland Cafe
in Rogers Park and sees a
20-something guy with
Ray-Bans nestled in his
untamed, wavy hair.
Have you been here
before? You look so familiar.
Oh, yeah, sure, responds Joe Keery, not
letting on that the waiter
may also recognize him
from Netflixs summer
megahit Stranger Things,
a creepy, funny, heartstringpulling homage to 80s
flicks. The series, created,
written and directed by
twins Matt and Ross Duffer, follows boys adventuring on bikes and teenagers
wading through messy
relationships and aliens
terrorizing small-town
Hoosiers who are trying to
reach another dimension
with basic electricity. You
know, all the universal stuff.
And to reach peak 80s
aesthetic, the series stars
Winona Ryder.
Keery plays Steve Harrington, a surface-level
too-cool-for-school teen
with a hidden heart of gold.
Its his first major TV role.
And its all just starting to
sink in.
Some people say, Oh,
you look just like the guy
from Stranger Things,
says Keery. And Im like, I

Im totally joking.
Keery was waiting tables
at DMK Burger Bar in
Lakeview when he got the
call last August saying that
the role was his.
There was a dude down
in the alleyway and I gave
him a big old high-five,
Keery says, pulling in his
fists and reliving the moment. And then I went
back inside and tried not to
think about it.
He grew up outside of
Boston in Newburyport,
Mass., and got into acting
accidentally, following in
his sisters footsteps after
more actors were needed
for a high school production of The Pajama Game.
He kept doing plays and
ended up applying to The
Theatre School at DePaul
University on a whim, with
encouragement from his
mom. He visited and was
sold. His roles at DePaul
ranged from the closeted,
married Mormon Joe Pitt
in Tony Kushners epic
Angels in America, Part 2:
Perestroika to the angsty,
rebellious teen Melchior in
the Duncan Sheik musical
Spring Awakening.

sive in the first draft. The


character was so unlikeable, Keery assumed the
character would be killed
off. But he worked with the
brothers to create a character adept at towing the line
between right and wrong.
Everyone thinks theyre
the hero in their own story,
he says.
So is the real-life Steve
Harrington on Team Steve?
I think Id be Team
Barb, probably, Keery says.
Im more worried about
Barb. Who cares whos
dating? Where the hell is
Barb?
Barb, the steadfast best
friend of Harringtons love
interest Nancy, has become
something of an icon in the
wake of her slimy end and
unexplained other-dimensional death on the show.
But if you die in another
dimension ...
Keery finishes the
thought: Do you really die?
I dont know.
The deja vu-struck waiter drops off a salad, and
squints again at our table
before heading off.
Keery plays guitar, sings,
writes songs and lives with
his band Post Animal when
not filming the series in

Atlanta. He talks about his


favorite Chicago rockers
Twin Peaks and says hed
love to go on tour one day.
He also draws musical
inspiration from ELO,
Steely Dan and Wings. His
arts all about the 80s.
Just wait till we get to
the 90s, he says. Itll be a
riot. Ill get frosted tips.
When conversation
shifts to the second season
of Stranger Things, its
clear Keery doesnt plan on
abandoning the series for
his band and hopes to do it
all. When asked about the
official announcement, his
fingers cross and go up in
the air, his face scrunches
up and he can barely spit
out how much hes hoping
for the official renewal. I
hope, I hope that, I hope, I
hope theres, I just hope
that, its announced! he
says. I just dont know.
Keery hopes Harrington
survives whatevers in store
next season maybe a trip
to the dangerous Upside
Down. Hed just take all
the goo from the monster
and use it to flip his hair
up.
Ah, that hair.
I dont really do anything to it, he says. I wear

a hat sometimes. Everybodys asking me what type


of shampoo I use and Im
like ... 24 years of buildup
right here. (Hes kidding.)
Hes more interested in
talking about his castmates
than his sky-high hair,
including the uber-talented
child actors that comprise
the ragtag gang of neighborhood kids ready to save
the world. Finn Wolfhard,
who plays Mike, has sent
Keery covers of his bands
songs. And theyre all regular snapchatters.
And then theres the
hometown crowd. Keerys
fan base runs deep.
Somebody (on Instagram) was like, Wait. You
live in Chicago? Ill be at
Longman & Eagle tonight
with my friends. And one
of my friends responded to
it like, I dont know. What
do you think, Joe? And I
was like, Sure. And then
we went and hung out with
these people. It was pretty
fun.
In college, one of Keerys
professors, who he describes as genius, made
him complete a five-year
plan and most of it is coming true.
That professor was Jane
Brody, who says she was
transfixed after watching
Keery perform for the first
time junior year. He can
command a room without
the room knowing hes
doing it, she says. I sat
down with him in that
junior year and I said, You
know Joe, youre gonna be
a star.
She wanted him to work
harder than the average
pretty talented guy.
Everything always looks
easy for him, even when its
not, she says.
Brody says that one of
her main focuses in teaching is railing against playing
a stereotype and is proud
Keery hasnt fallen into that
trap on Stranger Things.
Shed love to see him play a
warrior in Shakespeares
Henry VI.
Right now Im missing
theater so hard, Keery
says, shouting out his
hometown heroes Michael
Shannon and Tracy Letts as
actors whose career paths
hed like to follow. I just
have so much respect for
those guys and the work
that they choose to do.
Chicago was always in
that plan, too. The Ravenswood dweller is planning a
move to Logan Square with
the band.
A lot of people dont
expect people to live in
Chicago, he says. But
Chicago is a sick city.
Chicago is a place
where actors can live and
be without becoming narcissists, says Brody. I
think its very hard to live in
Los Angeles and not become a narcissist.
After lunch, on the Red
Line train heading south,
the guy sitting across from
Keery keeps staring. His
phone is out, held at a
higher angle than normal,
Pokemon Go style.
The Ray-Bans go on.
As the voyeur gets up to
exit the train he quickly
says, Good work, man.
Keery, with a small smile,
says, So weird.

Fear the Walking Dead (8

p.m., AMC): Day of the Dead may


be a joyous occasion in Mexico,
but there is little celebrating going-on by the fractured Clark and
Manawa family group as this series
returns in its midseason premiere.
With Travis and Madison (Cliff
Curtis, Kim Dickens) currently
separated by circumstances, the
former focuses his attention on son
Chris, who is quickly shedding his
innocence. Elsewhere, Nick continues his weird and highly risky
fascination with the dead, whose
numbers are rapidly swelling.

Networks hope
familiar titles
translate to TV
By Chris Barton

Los Angeles Times

Do not adjust your set:


Whats on television may
look more familiar than
usual this fall.
The roster of recognizable names for the 2016-17
season goes beyond longtime TV fixtures Matt
LeBlanc and Kiefer Sutherland and includes roughly a
dozen shows based on
already existing series and
films, some of which
stretch back decades.
Lethal Weapon, The
Exorcist and Frequency
are just three of the shows
coming to screens this fall
that first appeared in theaters. One new series, CBS
rebooted MacGyver,
debuted on a different
network more than 20
years ago.
Some of the reasoning is
simple: In a TV landscape
thats more expansive and
competitive than ever, its
perceived as a far safer bet
for networks to dip into the
past and ask audiences to
get reacquainted with
stories they recognize than
start from scratch with a
new one.
Our hope is the wellknown titles if, and only
if, well-executed will
lighten the load on our
marketing team, Fox Television Group Co-Chairman
and Chief Executive Dana
Walden said recently at the
Television Critics Association press tour. Fox has
Lethal Weapon and The
Exorcist on the fall schedule, with new takes on 24
and Prison Break coming
midseason. But, Walden
added, the network recognizes that a familiar name is
not enough and in fact was
unconvinced by the prospects of a new Lethal
Weapon as the show first
entered production.

At every stage, we kept


lifting the bar, Walden said
after her panel concluded
last week. Because again
we are aware of the skepticism. Its an iconic franchise, its a film franchise,
its evocative of a specific
cast. At each stage, they
kept upping the bar; they
delivered great material.
Networks have been
drawing from multiplexes
for decades. M*A*S*H,
Alice and In the Heat of
the Night ran on TV for
years after being inspired
by the big screen. But for
every success story like
recent award winner
Fargo, theres a wasteland
of single-season failures
that includes long-forgotten attempts to revive
Ferris Buellers Day Off,
Working Girl (starring
Sandra Bullock) and Fast
Times at Ridgemont High.
The trend has expanded
in recent years with the rise
of streaming services. For
all its success with originals, including Stranger
Things, Orange Is the
New Black and House of
Cards, Netflix has an
open-door policy to rebooting or launching continuations of long-gone TV
series, including Fuller
House and Gilmore
Girls. HBO is also getting
into the re-imagination
business this fall with its
update of the 1973 film
Westworld.
Results have been typically uneven, but in some
cases these reboots can
strike a chord among critics
and audiences. The 1990
TV version of Parenthood, the 1989 film by Ron
Howard, was canceled
quickly. But a subsequent
adaptation in 2010 lasted
five years. In the late 90s,
Joss Whedons critically
beloved Buffy the Vampire
Slayer built a world over

seven seasons that expanded into directions and


spinoffs that reached well
beyond the original 1992
film. The mid-00s smalltown high school football
drama Friday Night
Lights, adapted from the
1990 book and 2004 film of
the same name, may be the
contemporary gold standard for film-to-television
translations.
Friday Night Lights
was one of my favorite
shows of all time, said
Jeremy Carver, who left as
showrunner for CWs longrunning series Supernatural to adapt the 2000 film
Frequency for the network.
Frequency may not be
receiving the same buzz as
its television counterparts
partly because the 2000
film, led by Dennis Quaid
and Jim Caviezel, was a
more modest hit.
Cast member Lenny
Jacobson said that could
work to the shows ad-

vantage. In this day and


age where people are doing
reboots, sometimes its
safer not to reboot something that is untouchable,
as you can see with, like,
Ghost-busters, he said at
the press tour panel for
Frequency. Thank God,
if it wasnt super-popular,
were not going to ruin
anyones childhood by
doing this movie into a TV
show.
That pressure was also
on the minds of the creators of the new series based
on The Exorcist, the 1973
horror classic that spawned
multiple sequels that struggled to reach the same
heights because, in the
mind of series creator Jeremy Slater, they adhered too
closely to the original. The
only way you can succeed is
by doing something new,
he said during the press
tour.
Exorcist star Geena
Davis said she would not
have agreed to join the cast

if it had been intended for


her character to echo the
role played by Ellen Burstyn in the original. Before
they explained what it was
about, at first, I went (gasp)
The Exorcist, she said. I
definitely wouldnt have
wanted to do that.
For Peter Lenkov, who
rebooted the upcoming
MacGyver, satisfying the
rules of the previous series
while staking new ground
was a balancing act.
The new MacGyver,
played by Lucas Till, is
described as less of a lone
wolf than Richard Dean
Andersons original character, and modern technology
plays more of a role th
