  • Former Algonquin teen remembered for strong fight against cancer

    ALGONQUIN – Although 14-year-old Talia Freund lost her battle with metastatic Ewing’s sarcoma on Monday, her family has pledged to continue her battle to fight childhood cancer. Freund, formerly of Algonquin, was diagnosed about nine months ago, and died peacefully among her family and close friends at her home in Mazon, according to her obituary. Throughout her battle, Talia always kept a smile on her face, and was dedicated to helping others who were going through what she was, her father Greg Freund, of Algonquin, said. “We have to go continue that fight, and try to make sure as many kids as possible can be saved,” Freund said. Donations to Team Talia and her family while she was fighting cancer totaled more than $30,000, her family said. More than $20,000 was raised at a fundraiser held in Mazon in March, Freund said, and nearly $10,000 was raised through the Shamrock Shave at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church later that month. Talia fought her battle like a warrior, her mother Tabitha Freeman said. In March, Talia told the Northwest Herald she just wanted to be treated like a normal person, not a cancer patient. “She fought this battle with such a kind, strong heart that it’s admirable,” Freeman said. “I don’t know how she did it.” Family and friends are working on setting up a foundation in honor of Talia to fund childhood cancer research. Talia’s wish was to have memorials made to the Team Talia account at the First Community Financial Bank of Mazon to go toward further cancer research. Talia was a freshman attending Seneca Township High School. She had dreams of becoming a special education teacher, and had a passion for cosmetics, according to her obituary. In addition to her parents, she is survived by stepfather Joseph Freeman, of Mazon, and brother Owen. A celebration of Talia’s life will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the U.C. Davis-Callahan Funeral Home, 301 W. Washington St., Morris. Visitation will take place at 10 a.m. May 6, followed by mass at 11 a.m. at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, 111 S. Hubbard St., Algonquin. After the mass, a celebration will be held at Haegers Bend Community Center, 3226 E. Bend Drive, Algonquin.

  • District 155 to offer aviation course with LITH Airport

    CRYSTAL LAKE – High School District 155 is partnering with Lake in the Hills Airport to offer interested students an opportunity to earn a private pilot license. A limited number of spots are available for the course, which gives students the opportunity to study for and pass the written test required by the Federal Aviation Administration before flight time with an instructor can start. Both the district and the airport see the partnership as mutually beneficial. The district can give students an opportunity to begin work pursuing jobs in the in-demand field of aviation. “This course will provide a strong foundation of knowledge and increase students’ exposure of aviation. Students interested in aviation can advance in high school, allowing them to reduce costs in college,” Superintendent Johnnie Thomas said in a statement. As for the airport, the course can help promote flying to a new generation, manager Mike Peranich said. “One of the challenges the aviation industry as a whole and the airport face is keeping pilots flying – maintaining an influx of new ones. The earlier we can reach kids and involve or interest them, the more they know as adults, and they may make the decision earlier to fly,” Peranich said. Besides pilot, the course is aimed for students who are interested in pursuing the careers of flight operations support, dispatcher, engineering, and working for the FAA. Chicago-based Boeing, the world’s largest aviation company, projected last year a demand for nearly 1.5 million pilots and technicians for the worldwide commercial aviation industry over the next 20 years. For North America, the estimate predicts a need for 112,000 new pilots, 127,000 new technicians and 151,000 new cabin crew employees. The course will be taught by a commercial pilot and an FAA-certified ground instructor. Classes will be held at Crystal Lake South High School from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Mondays from Aug. 21 to Dec. 18, giving students the necessary knowledge to pass the written knowledge test. The cost of the course is $350. The district is holding an informational meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday in the library of Crystal Lake South, 1200 McHenry Ave. The FAA requires a minimum of 40 hours of flight time on top of passing the test in order to get a private pilot license.

  • Trump plan would cut taxes for companies – and people, too

    WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump proposed dramatic cuts in corporate and personal taxes Wednesday in an overhaul his administration asserts will spur national economic growth and bring jobs and prosperity to America's middle class. But his ambitious plan is alarming lawmakers who worry it will balloon federal deficits. The plan would reduce investment and estate taxes, helping the wealthy. But administration officials said several other tax breaks that help well-to-do taxpayers would be eliminated and the plan would largely help the middle class. The White House has yet to spell out how much of a hole the tax cuts could create in the federal budget, maintaining that the resulting economic growth would eliminate the risk of a soaring government deficit— if not actually cause the red ink to diminish. The outlined changes to the tax code are the most concrete guidance so far on Trump's vision for spurring job growth and fulfilling his promise to help workers who have been left behind by an increasingly globalized economy. 'He understands that there are a lot people who work hard and feel like they're not getting ahead,' said Gary Cohn, director of the White House National Economic Council. 'I would never, ever bet against this president. He will get this done for the American people.' Still, the proposal leaves a series of open questions that could affect its impact on taxpayers and the economy. The administration wants to reduce the number of tax brackets to three from seven, but it has yet to determine the income levels for people who would be put in each bracket. It also has yet to spell out how the plan would stop wealthier Americans from exploiting a lower corporate tax rate to reduce how much they pay. And the White House has downplayed the threat that the tax cuts could cause the deficit to surge, possibly eroding support for the plan among lawmakers in Trump's own Republican Party. Cohn said Trump and his administration recognize they have to be 'good stewards' of the federal budget. But the plan as it currently stands could cause the federal deficit to climb, unless it sparks a massive and lasting wave of growth that most economists say is unlikely. Administration officials intend to hash out additional details with members of the House and Senate in the coming weeks for what would be the first massive rewrite of the U.S. tax code since 1986. 'We know this is difficult,' Cohn said. 'We know what we're asking for is a big bite.' As Cohn and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin explained it in an interview, the plan would reduce the number of personal income tax brackets to three from seven: rates of 10 percent, 25 percent and 35 percent. It would double the standard deduction for married couples to $24,000, while keeping deductions for charitable giving and mortgage interest payments. The administration plans to provide tax relief for families with child care expenses, too, although the specifics have yet to be included. On the other hand, the proposal would trim other deductions utilized by wealthier Americans. These would include deductions for state and local tax payments, a change that could alienate support from lawmakers in states such as California and New York with higher state taxes. 'It's not the federal government's job to be subsidizing the states,' Mnuchin said. The administration has emphasized that the plan is focused on simplifying the tax code and helping middle class Americans. The median U.S. household income is slightly above $50,000 annually. Still, the proposal could reduce the tax burden for the wealthy by substantial amounts, including by eliminating the catch-all alternative minimum tax, which takes an additional bite out of high-income taxpayers. It would also repeal the estate tax and the 3.8 percent tax on investment income from President Barack Obama's health care law. The proposal has yet to be vetted for its precise impact on top earners, as several details are still being determined. On the corporate side, the top marginal tax rate would fall from 35 percent to 15 percent. Small businesses that account for their owners' personal incomes would see their top tax rate go from 39.6 percent to the proposed corporate tax rate of 15 percent. Mnuchin said the change for small business owners — a group that under the current definition could include doctors, lawyers and even major real estate companies — would be done in a way that would ensure wealthier Americans could not exploit the change to pay less than intentioned in taxes.

  • Neanderthals in California? Maybe so, provocative study says

    NEW YORK – A startling new report asserts that the first known Americans arrived much, much earlier than scientists thought — more than 100,000 years ago _ and maybe they were Neanderthals. If true, the finding would far surpass the widely accepted date of about 15,000 years ago. Researchers say a site in Southern California shows evidence of humanlike behavior from about 130,000 years ago, when bones and teeth of an elephantlike mastodon were evidently smashed with rocks. The earlier date means the bone-smashers were not necessarily members of our own species, Homo sapiens. The researchers speculate that these early Californians could have instead been species known only from fossils in Europe, Africa and Asia: Neanderthals, a little-known group called Denisovans, or another human forerunner named Homo erectus. 'The very honest answer is, we don't know,' said Steven Holen, lead author of the paper and director of the nonprofit Center for American Paleolithic Research in Hot Springs, South Dakota. No remains of any individuals were found. Whoever they were, they could have arrived by land or sea. They might have come from Asia via the Beringea land bridge that used to connect Siberia to Alaska, or maybe come across by watercraft along the Beringea coast or across open water to North America, before turning southward to California, Holen said in a telephone interview. Holen and others present their evidence in a paper released Wednesday by the journal Nature . Not surprisingly, the report was met by skepticism from other experts who don't think there is enough proof. The research dates back to the winter of 1992-3. The site was unearthed during a routine dig by researchers during a freeway expansion project in San Diego. Analysis of the find was delayed to assemble the right expertise, said Tom Demere, curator of paleontology at the San Diego Natural History Museum, another author of the paper. The Nature analysis focuses on remains from a single mastodon, and five stones found nearby. The mastodon's bones and teeth were evidently placed on two stones used as anvils and smashed with three stone hammers, to get at nutritious marrow and create raw material for tools. Patterns of damage on the limb bones looked like what happened in experiments when elephant bones were smashed with rocks. And the bones and stones were found in two areas, each roughly centered on what's thought to be an anvil. The stones measured about 8 inches (20 centimeters) to 12 inches (30 centimeters) long and weighed up to 32 pounds (14.5 kilograms). They weren't hand-crafted tools, Demere said. The users evidently found them and brought them to the site. The excavation also found a mastodon tusk in a vertical position, extending down into older layers, which may indicate it had been jammed into the ground as a marker or to create a platform, Demere said. The fate of the visitors is not clear. Maybe they died out without leaving any descendants, he said. Experts not connected with the study provided a range of reactions. 'If the results stand up to further scrutiny, this does indeed change everything we thought we knew,' said Chris Stringer of the Natural History Museum in London. Neanderthals and Denisovans are the most likely identities of the visitors, he said. But 'many of us will want to see supporting evidence of this ancient occupation from other sites, before we abandon the conventional model of a first arrival by modern humans within the last 15,000 years,' he wrote in an email. Erella Hovers of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Institute of Human Origins at Arizona State University in Tempe, who wrote a commentary accompanying the work, said in an email that the archaeological interpretation seemed convincing. Some other experts said the age estimate appears sound. But some were skeptical that the rocks were really used as tools. Vance Holliday of the University of Arizona in Tucson said the paper shows the bones could have been broken the way the authors assert, but they haven't demonstrated that's the only way. Richard Potts of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History, said he doesn't reject the paper's claims outright, but he finds the evidence 'not yet solid.' For one thing, the dig turned up no basic stone cutting tools or evidence of butchery or the use of fire, as one might expect from Homo sapiens or our close evolutionary relatives. The lead author, Holen, told reporters Tuesday that he and co-authors were ready for such criticism. 'We expected skepticism because of the extremely old age of this site,' he said. 'I think we made a very good case.'

  • Police find meth lab equipment near McHenry neighborhood

    McHENRY — Police arrested a local man Tuesday after finding equipment for making methamphetamine and methamphetamine manufacturing waste at a home in residential neighborhood near McHenry. The McHenry County Sheriff's Office was called about 9:45 a.m. Tuesday to the 2900 block of Lincoln Road near McHenry for the report of a possible meth lab in the area. Deputies saw equipment and supplies, including tubing and jars, that appeared to be part of a meth lab. McHenry County Sheriff's Deputy Sandra Rogers said materials found in the residence were likely used for the one-pot method – a way to cook methamphetamine in small batches for personal use. Deputies also found other items commonly associated with making meth. No one needed to be evacuated from the surrounding area or alerted of the situation because of the size of the operation, Rogers said. Sean C. Blackmon, 44, was charged with possession of methamphetamine manufacturing material, methamphetamine manufacturing waste, both Class 2 felonies and driving on a suspended license, a Class A misdemeanor. He has lived at the McHenry residence for at least the last year, Rogers said. Blackmon has been previously charged with disorderly conduct in 2016, burglary in 2014 and unlawful possession of a controlled substance in 2002. Members of the Illinois State Police Methamphetamine Response Team and McHenry County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit also responded. Blackmon remains in McHenry County Jail custody in lieu of posting 10 percent of his $55,000 bond. He will appear in court April 27. Rogers said the sheriff's office has seen an increase in methamphetamine related arrests in the past year as compared to the last six years, many of which have been small operations such as this one. She said methamphetamine has always been around but more residents are becoming aware of what's needed to make it and reaching out to authorities with information, resulting in more investigations and arrests.

  • City Clerk Lynn Landberg is Swedish Days Parade Marshal

    GENEVA – Geneva’s retiring city clerk, Lynn Landberg, could not have been more surprised that he was named the 2017 Swedish Days Grand Parade marshal by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce. The parade starts at 1 p.m. June 25, the last day of the five-day festival, the release stated. The irony of the situation is, Landberg is Chamber spokeswoman Laura Rush’s father – and even she did not know he was being considered until Chamber President Jean Gaines told her. “I cried, I was so excited,” Rush said. “I was taken aback and so thrilled for him. My brother, who lives in Minnesota and my two nieces are going to come to Swedish Days and ride in the carriage with him. I will be taking pictures as it goes by.” Rush had to wait for the official notice to send in an email to her father – and he didn’t believe it, she said. “He sent an email, ‘Is this April Fools?’ I said, ‘No Dad, it’s real,’” Rush said. Gaines said the parade marshal honor goes to people who have given back to the community and Landberg was an ideal choice. “Every year, we try to find someone who is an unsung hero,” Gaines said. “Someone that people don’t know contributed to the community, someone they’re not even thinking about. … It was a surprise to [Rush] and everybody else. It was fun to see her reaction. She’s very proud of her dad … happy he’s being recognized.” Landberg’s official response was, “Wow. I never expected this.” 'I wanted to do my part' A life-long Geneva resident, Landberg was the fourth generation to go through the Geneva District 304 schools, finishing at Geneva High School in 1962, the release stated. After graduating with a communications degree from the University of Illinois, Landberg wrote for several trade publications, and then for 30 years he was editor of “Construction Equipment” magazine with Reed Business Information, retiring in 2003, the release stated. He married his high school sweetheart and raised a family in the same home for 45 years, the release stated. During that time, Landberg was active in school PTOs and booster clubs, contributing to a Geneva High School alumni newsletter in the early 2000s, the release stated. Bert Wood, who was mayor in the 1970s, appointed Landberg to the Economic Development Committee, where he worked on the formation of the city’s first tax increment finance district, the release stated. In 1979, Wood appointed Landberg to the Plan Commission, where he served for six years, then he ran and won the city clerk position in 1985, serving two terms, the release stated. Landberg's father, Harold Landberg, also served as city clerk in the 1960s, the release stated. In 2005, Landberg ran again for city clerk and after a combined 20 years on the City Council, will retire this year, the release stated. In addition to his civic contributions, Landberg volunteered at the front desk at the Geneva History Museum for 12 years, the release stated. “I grew up in Geneva, as did my parents and many other relatives who went to Geneva schools, and, along with my wife, Vicky, who also grew up here, raised our kids here,” Landberg stated in the release. “This is home, the only one I’ve known, and I’ve always given Geneva my full support, and wanted to do what I could to do my part in making it the great community it is.” One more council meeting Landberg will serve as city clerk for one more City Council meeting on May 1. That is when the old council starts the meeting, closes it for some celebratory cake, then the newly elected members are sworn in and take their seats and reconvene the meeting. “I’m going to miss it,” Landberg said. “I always kind of enjoyed it.” Landberg sat through 20 years of City Council meetings, recording the votes and then spending the week writing up the minutes. “I majored in advertising copywriting and you had to be very succinct because you only had so much space. And you had to make every sentence count,” Landberg said. “No wasted space. I would do the same thing with the minutes. Take three paragraphs and boil it down to four sentences.” Surprisingly, Landberg said he will still watch City Council meetings on television – in his pajamas. “It’s one of the fun things – I take a real interest in what happens in the city,” Landberg said. “And on a snowy, cold or rainy night, I’ll be glad I’m here. I’ll still have the interest, I just won’t have to spend rest of the week writing those doggone minutes.” Mayor Kevin Burns said Landberg’s departure will be felt. “He provided not only extraordinary service, but stability and pragmatism in how we conducted our meetings,” Burns said. “And most importantly, produced documents that provided everyone with a clear understanding of the business conducted by the elected officials.”

  • Sugar Grove Village President Sean Michels gives State of the Village address

    SUGAR GROVE – Sugar Grove Village President Sean Michels encouraged others to continue to use the village as a resource during his 2017 State of the Village address on April 24 at Waubonsee Community College. “If you’re thinking about expansion, we’d love to talk to you about site plans and the process and to use the village as a resource,” he said. “We’d be happy to help you.” Michels detailed some of the recent successes in the village, including Sugar Grove Senior Living apartments, which are at 100 percent occupancy; the law firm Mickey, Wilson, Weiler, Renzi & Andersson, which relocated from Aurora; Ace Hardware, which won its second consecutive Pinnacle Award; Starbucks, which opened inside of Jewel; and the AutoZone, which is now in development. He also provided details about some other upcoming growth. Prairie Pointe Assisted Living, which will provide 53 assisted living and 17 memory care units, is under construction and is scheduled to open next year. “We’re very excited to bring this in because it’ll also bring in other professionals, and it’s in a great location,” Michels said. “As people come into visit, they can also stop nearby for a bite to eat or go to Walgreens to get some accessories the residents might need.” Dunkin’ Donuts is scheduled to open this summer. Ground was broken in November, but there have been some delays. “We thought things were going well, but there were some restrictions, like how they couldn’t compete against Jewel’s bakery, but they say they’ll be open by June,': Michels said. Michels also praised the new gas station, Graham’s Market Place Convenience Store & Car Wash, at the corner of Galena Boulevard and Route 47, which is no longer an eyesore; Top Pick Athletics, which is generating a lot of traffic for young athlete training; and the forthcoming Culver’s, which he didn’t realize would be so popular. “I can’t believe the amount of people who are so excited about Culver’s,” he said. “I’ve been there a few times, with the burgers and the popularity of cod during lent and the frozen custard, but didn’t know it was going to be this popular.” Michels said the public hearing process for the Culver’s development should be completed in May and that construction should begin by June, while a BP gas station will open off of Route 47 adjacent to the old First Secure Bank building soon. In the old downtown of Sugar Grove, Southwest Real Estate opened up an office earlier this year on Main Street, while on Cross Street, Paisano’s Pizza and Grill opened in January. Nanette’s Boutique opened in April after relocating from Yorkville. Residential construction continues to be going well, according to Michels, with growth at Prairie Glen, Hannaford Farm and Meadowridge Villas, as well as some long-needed improvements at Settlers Ridge. “The Settlers Ridge infrastructure improvements were completed,” he said. “We had a lot of residents there who had to sit through street lights being out, but we didn’t want to take the bond company off the hook and won the lawsuit.” Michels also discussed a variety of infrastructure projects, including the bridge replacement at Bliss Road, which will force a detour for drivers from some time in May through likely September.
