Workshop prepares teens to babysit By Debbie Lively Staff reporter

Local teens recently attended a babysitting workshop where they leaned how to become a qualified baby sitter. Middle school students in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades participated in the Downers Grove Junior Woman’s Club’s babysitting course to learn about the responsibilities involved in caring for infants and young children. “We teach them what to do when you go to someone’s home,” said Ana O’Neil, a spokeswomen with the Junior Women’s Club. “These are students who are ready to baby sit, who want to do it to earn extra money.” The three-hour course includes talks and demonstrations relating to the responsibilities and functions of a babysitter See BABYSIT, page 2

Charitable panel heats up village council

BABYSIT Continued from page 1

By Debbie Lively Staff reporter

There was a bit of a heated discussion during a recent council meeting when commissioners went at one another over whether or not to delay establishing a new Human Rights Commission. The thought for the new commission began when Commissioner Bob Barnett brought the idea of combining the Human Services and Grants commissions together as a 7-member team that would be made-up of local volunteers. The new panel would look for ways to provide services to residents in the climate of growing needs for social services without using taxpayer dollars. A proposal for establishing the new commission happened at a village board meeting on Oct. 5. After the October meeting, talks among council members put other board members in opposition to the new commission. Then council members Bruce Beckman and Marilyn Schnell wanted to delay activating the commission stating that they desired more

time to allow the village’s staff to investigate exactly how the commission would function. But Councilman William Waldack wanted to squelch the commission altogether, stating that a human services commission would constitute the village getting involved with charitable funding and could creating a kind of “political slush fund.” “Taking in and channeling any funding should not be a part of village services and it’s ripe for a political slush fund. I say referrals not funding,” Waldack said in a prepared speech. He went on to accuse Barnett of violating village policy by pretending to act as a liaison to the new commission and wrongly attending a recent commission meeting without the council’s authorization. Mayor Ron Sandack scolded the councilman for reading a prepared statement. “What I heard was offensive, absolutely offensive,” said Sandack. “I would expect that if you felt that way, you would have picked up a phone and called Mr. Barnett or any of your colleagues, but instead you read a speech,” said Sandack told Waldack.

Barnett visibly surprised by the accusation of creating a “slush fund” said that his intentions were to promote a kind non-paid social services commission that would have the public’s interest at its center. “We can talk slush funds, we can talk radical conspiracy theories, but I recommend that we do it someplace else other than here,” said Barnett. “I can’t begin to imagine what it is that makes folks so uncomfortable about asking a group of residents (commission members) who have chosen to volunteer for a group that focuses on the needs of our residents.” Barnett also said that he had the approval of the board to attend the commission’s recent meeting. “The value of the group is for them to operate without us. I only wanted to make myself available and not be involved,” he said. Waldack, who has experience working in charitable funding with the United Way, said that it’s difficult for any government entity to work with charitable funding without some political influence. He believed that

the commission would collect donated funds from the community and distribute monies to various charitable organizations. “I think if Commissioner Barnett suddenly wants to get into the charitable giving process, creating a type of United Way of Downers Grove, let him do so without the participation of village government,” Waldack said. Commissioner Schnell who wanted to postpone a vote on allowing the new commission to move forward with its duties stated that she wasn’t saying “no” to the commission, but that she only wanted to learn more about how it would operate. “The idea of postponing it was to allow staff to provide us with additional information. I would still like to have more time,” she said. The measure passed with Sandack, Durkin, Barnett and Neustadt voting in favor of the new commission, with Schnell, Waldack and Beckman voted against the issue. The new commission will meet again in December.

in both routine and emergency situations. Students were taught basic skills such as how to handle uncooperative children, knowledge about food allergies and a demonstration on how to change a baby’s diaper. There were also speakers from the Downers Grove Fire Department as well as the police department, and medical paramedics who all spoke about safety procedures for babysitters. And participants received a certificate for completing the class. This is the 12th year that the club has held the workshop, and with parental approval, the names of students are made available to members of the Downers Grove Junior Woman’s Club as potential babysitters. The Junior Women’s Club holds the popular workshop twice a year. This event was held at the Downers Grove Fire Station 2, at 5420 Main St., Downers Grove.

District 99 hires full-time communications director By Debbie Lively Staff reporter

There will be a new person communicating the activities of District 99. Earlier this month the high school district hired Jill Browning as its new communications director who will interact with the community and the media regarding the news and events relating to the high schools. “We decided that we wanted

a full-time p e r s o n ,” said Mark McDonald, Dist. 99 school superintendent. The previous c o m m u - Jill n i c a t i o n s Browning person Faith Behr wanted to remain as a consultant, and not a full-time employee. “District 99 administrators

made a strategic decision to move from a consultant for communications and public relations and to hire a full-time, in-district professional, adopting a structure similar to other top school districts in the country,” said the district in a released statement. Browning has over 20 years of experience, which includes managing large corporate communications programs and websites as well as writing

for regional and national publications, schools officials said. “She has a lot of understanding of social media,” said McDonald. “We’ve only scratched the surface with that and we want to grow in that area.” Some of Browning’s first actions will be to help communicate the district’s master site plan to the community, correspond with the public about hiring a

principal for North High School and ramping up the school’s online communications. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to not only do the kind of work that I’m passionate about, but also to serve the communities that I’m passionate about,” said Browning, a nine-year resident of Downers Grove and parent of three children in District 58. dlively@buglenewspapers.com

New Woodridge library board trustee steps in By Debbie Lively Staff reporter

Woodridge Public Library recently swore in a new board trustee. Jane Whiteside, a Woodridge resident, was appointed this week to the complete the expired term left vacant by Library Board President Myra Mahlke, who passed away in August. “Jane was appointed to fill Myra’s seat, she will then have to

run to be a trustee for the future,” said Susan McNeil-Marshal, administrator for the Woodridge Library. Whiteside, who holds a Masters Degree in Library Science formally worked at Fountaindale Public Library District in Bolingbrook as the director of children’s services. While Whiteside will fill Mahlke’s trustee seat, Jay Tiede was elected in take over the board president’s seat in

September. Tiede, who is also superintendent of schools for District 66, has served as the board’s vice-president for several years. And while the public elects library trustees, the president’s seat is appointed from among the seven trustees. In April, the board will also have to decide whether to reelect Tiede for a full term, or appoint another candidate to the president’s post.

Costco opening in Chicago suburbs Costco will open three membership warehouses in the Chicago area this week. All three will open at 8 a.m. Costco is opening in Melrose Park Wednesday, Nov. 17. The 152,000-square-foot warehouse is located at 8400 W. North Ave., on the site of the former Kiddieland Amusement Park. Bolingbrook’s 152,000-squarefoot warehouse will open Thursday, Nov. 18. It is located at 830 E. Boughton Road, at the northeast corner of Boughton Road and Interstate 355. Costco’s third Chicagoland location, Mettawa, will open Saturday, Nov. 20. The 152,000square-foot warehouse is located at 25901 Riverwoods Road, between Riverwoods Road and Route 60, off the Interstate 94 Tollway. “We opened our first Costco location in Chicagoland 12 years ago, and we owe our success

there to the terrific members we have in that market,” said John Gaherty, senior vice president of Costco’s Midwest region. “We are excited to be able to serve those members even better, and to bring our great values to more people, with our three new, stateof-the-art buildings.” In the Costco tradition, the three Chicagoland warehouses will offer quality, name-brand and private-label merchandise at incredible values. Costco helps businesses save money on supplies and on items for resale, and provides a wide range of products and services for personal use as well. The new Costco locations will feature a variety of convenient specialty departments, including a Gas Station, Fresh Bakery, Fresh Meat, Fresh Produce, Fresh Deli, Rotisserie Chicken, Optical Department with Independent Doctor of Optometry, 1-Hour

Photo, Pharmacy, Tire Center, Hearing Aid Center, Food Court, and Fine Wine & Liquor. Members also save on Costco Services such as Travel and Auto Buying. Costco will now have 16 warehouses in Illinois, 423 in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and 580 worldwide.

Because the library is a taxing body, the public elects members of the board, and in April, there will be three library trustee positions up for reelection. Terms are set to expire in a staggered framework, to prevent the district from operating with a completely freshman board. People interested in running for the board are required to file petitions with the village clerk’s office Dec. 13 through 20.

“People express an interest in serving on the library board if there’s an open, and they usually come to me,”said McNeil-Marshal, who keeps the applicants on file and passes the information to the board when a vacancy occurs. Library trustee positions are non-paid spots. Whiteside was sworn in on Nov. 17, to replace Mahlke who had severed on the board for over 40 years. dlively@buglenewspapers.com

Downers South gets $5,000 gift for programs Global Hope, Inc. of Downers Grove has made a $5,000 donation to Downers Grove South High School to help it expand its after school, yoga and prevention activity programs. The donation was made possible by Perma-Seal Charitable Foundation. “We really appreciate our ongoing relationship and support from Global Hope, specifically Laura Jane Murphy-Mellencamp and Mary Lothrop, in supporting our students at Downers Grove South,” comments Tracey Salvatore, Social Worker and author of the grant proposal. Half of the donation will help to expand the school’s STRIVE program. By providing a structured after school environment where students can complete homework or study for tests, STRIVE, an acronym for Success Through Reaching Individual Expectations, helps students to raise their GPAs and to learn valuable study skills that will help them throughout their educational careers. The program was originally designed for freshman, but school administrators wish to

expand the program to serve more financially disadvantaged upperclassmen, which represents about 15 percent of the population at Downers Grove South High School. The school’s Snowball prevention program will also receive part of the donation to help students in need of financial support. The program, a two-day retreat that 500 students attend per year, encourages responsible and positive thinking. The donation also will allow the Counseling and Student Support Services Department to purchase more yoga mats and blocks so that additional students can take part in the school’s “Zen Zone.” Students take part in yoga to reduce stress and improve their general well-being. “At our school, we have many students experiencing economic hardships,” explains South High School Associate Principal Gina Ziccardi. “We are pleased that Global Hope supports our desire to include more kids in our special programs, so that they can improve their future educational opportunities and success in life.”

Second water rate hike in six months OK’d By Debbie Lively Staff reporter

Just six months after a previous water rate increase, Downers Grove residents will sustain another hike beginning in January. The board voted to pass a 14 percent increase that will go into effect Jan. 1, 2011. “Our infrastructure is crumbing and it needs to be attended to,” said Mayor Ron Sandack, “and the cost of water has increased. It’s a good result, although not a happy one,” he said before the board voted unanimously to pass a second increase in water rates for the year. The average homeowner who pays $49.65 every other month will see their bills increase to $58. Commercial users with a 1.5” size meter and pay $331 will see a $40 increase to $371.25 every other month while industrial users with 2” size meters will see

their bi-month payments go up about $60 from $662 to $726. In April the village asked consulting firm Municipal and Financial Services Group, to complete a water rate study to evaluate the village’s water supply operations. Consultants came back stating that the village would soon run out of funds if it didn’t take action. Some of the reasons associated with the need for an increase are that residents are using 1 percent less water than previous years, and about 92.5 percent of the village’s water system revenue is based on water sales. “As people use less water that’s a good thing, but that means less revenue,” said Sandack. The village must also prepare for a 10 percent increase each year from the DuPage Water Commission who provides the village’s water supplies, and the village also must begin to update an aging water infrastructure

system. It will spend about $285,000 in capital improvement projects to repair brakes in needed locations, and expects to seek $6.8 million in bonds to complete more extensive work in 2012, said Stan Balicki, assistant direct of public works. Tap on fees will also increase under the plan. Right now fees range from $200 for a 1- inch tap to $400 for taps over 2 inches. These fees will increase to $230 to $590 based on the size taps. Downers Grove has seven elevated storage tanks with a total storage volume of 8 million gallons of water, and over 200 miles of water distribution mains. The new increase may be a challenge to the village’s 50,000 residents, who just sustained a 21 percent increase in May. The village also supplies water to a number of residents in unincorporated Downers Grove. dlively@buglenewspapers.com

Woman facing battery for approaching four-year-old By Debbie Lively Staff reporter

A woman was charged with battery for entering the backyard of a Downers Grove residence and trying to remove pants off of a four-year-old girl. Last week police arrested

Sukhvinder Kaur, 38, of 6478 Woodward Ave. for battery to a child. Kaur allegedly approached the girl who was playing alone in the backyard, and attempted to partially remove the little girl’s pants, said police. The suspect had no justification or authority

to be talking with, nor assisting the young girl in any manner, authority said. The incident took place in the 6400 block of Bush, when the child’s mother witnessed the woman enter her property and approach her child. The mother stepped out into the backyard

and confronted Kaur, who “calmly” walked away. “She did not know the family in any way,” said Sgt. Dave Bormann, a spokesman with the Downers Grove Police Department. “We don’t know why she did it.” And although her motives were unclear, police said that

the suspect never attempted to abduct the child from the yard. Kaur was arrested and transported to the Downers Grove Police Station. She was charged with battery to a child and disorderly conduct, and later released on a $1,500 bond.

Shop owner charged for selling counterfeit Nike shoes By Debbie Lively Staff reporter

A Romeoville man was charged recently for selling fake Nike gym shoes from his Downers Grove store. Last week, police charged Jesus Guerrero with one felony count of possession of

counterfeit trademarked goods. The suspect, who resides at 17 Sonoma Dr. in Romeoville, had allegedly been selling goods from his store So Fresh Hip Hop Closet. Nike Corporation alerted police to the operation when a private investigator from the athletic company contacted the Downers

Grove Police Department requesting assistance with obtaining a search warrant for the store, at 6315 Woodward Ave., in Downers Grove. Once in the store, authorities found over 1,000 pairs of bootleg Nike shoes as well as other name brand counterfeit handbags and clothing items.

Guerrero, who is the owner of the store, was the only person arrested in the investigation, said Sgt. Dave Bormann, a spokesman with the Downers Grove Police Department. Local officials did not know whether Nike officials would continue to investigate the source of the false goods. And it was

also believe that Guerrero has had similar charges previously filed against him. The suspect was taken to the DuPage County Jail, and was released on $2,000 bail. He’s scheduled to appear in court at the DuPage County Courthouse on Nov. 29.

FORUM

THE BUGLE NOVEMBER 17, 2010

Your View Pension funds debate continues Richard Ponx of Woodridge posed a question in the Oct. 20 issue of The Bugle “Forum.” He wondered why citizens of a town are required to contribute to local and state employee pension funds. He erroneously stated that his employers never contributed toward his pension fund. His employer certainly had to contribute to Social Security, which Mr. Ponx will collect when he retires. In addition, many employers match employee contributions to 401K plans. Many state employees must contribute to their own pension fund often at a higher rate than people who contribute to Social Security do. In addition, many state employees have contributed to Social Security at some time during their lives but will never be able to collect benefits since earning a pension and receiving Social Security is considered double-dipping even though

workers in the private sector can collect Social Security and their company pensions. Thus state and local workers have, in fact, contributed indirectly to Mr. Ponx’s “pension.” The pension of state and local workers is the only source of income for most state employees, and some are not eligible for Medicare but must purchase their own health care at exorbitant rates. All pension funds took a hit in the last few years, but state employees are not trying to “stick it” to the citizens of Woodridge or of Illinois. In fact, state pension funds have been under-funded or pillaged by legislators in favor of pet projects, putting state employees at risk. Instead of attacking each other, let’s look to our legislators for more ethical behavior and reasonable reforms in their spending habits. Marjorie Sucansky Woodridge

There is a lid for every pot. You may feel a little lonely or alienated in the week ahead. No matter how different you feel or how outrageous your desires, you will find your match at some point.

What goes around comes around. Your generosity or wisdom might be rewarded. You might receive a valuable offer or advice. Be grateful when moved to the front of the line by a Good Samaritan this week.

Travel light. Discard biased opinions and skip past misinformation, as you don’t need excess baggage. This is an excellent week to make reliable and rewarding resolutions or begin something exciting.

You could be stressed for success in the week to come. There could be a domino effect that causes you to react to someone else and that causes yet another tile to fall. Relax and put business aside temporarily.

Make plans for the family future. Today you might have a golden opportunity to make lasting peace with an estranged family member or to discuss a significant project. Cooperation from others is in your stars this week.

It is much better to make a key decision yourself than to have it made for you. If you aren’t sure what to do then ask for counsel from someone in the immediate vicinity this week. You will be happy with the results.

While gentle Venus retrogrades through your sign your outer demeanor softens. You are more likely want to cuddle kittens and puppies in the week ahead than to be successful at business pursuits.

Wear your Sunday finest. The people you meet today could have your best interests at heart. Pay extra attention to young people and children and spend extra time with hobbies in the week ahead.

Y o u r productivity playground is closed for repairs. Keep your money in your wallet this week and don’t tweak financial affairs. The harder you try to be businesslike the worse the results.

When you play poker, you can use cutthroat tactics and bluffs. In the week ahead and in real world situations, you might find that an “all for themselves” outlook only alienates supporters.

Your biological clock might not be wound as tightly as you think. In the week ahead you can relax. Take your time as you get acquainted with a new romantic prospect or learn a new creative technique.

Fate stitches together scraps of your life until you are covered in a quilt of your own making. Look at your emotional and physical surroundings in the week ahead and you will see where many single choices have led.

North dominates, captures sectional title By Rob Valentin Sports editor

Downers Grove North had a stellar day and the Sims sisters continued to dominate as the Trojans won the York Sectional last Saturday in Elmhurst. North scored 274 points to best Wheaton North (2nd, 237), York (217, 3rd) and Glenbard West (4th, 192) and Willowbrook (185). The Trojans won eight of the 12 races.

GIRLS SWIMMING Gabby, Maddy and Haley Sims shined bright as well. They helped lead the 200-yard medley and 400 freestyle relays to victories. Haley, a senior, took first in the 100 butterfly (2:05.9) and second in the 200 individual medley (2:05.9). Gabby, a freshman, won the 100 freestyle (51.15) and the 100 backstroke (56.0) while twin sister Maddy won the 500 freestyle (5:05.62) and took third in the 200 IM (2:08.58). “It was really exciting,” Haley said. “(My sisters) did so well and it was so exciting for us and the team. I think they performed better than they thought they could.” Haley didn’t wasn’t tapering for sectionals so she wasn’t at her best. Yet she still turned in the fastest time in the state in the 100 butterfly by almost a full second and the third fastest time in the 200 IM. “I was feeling alright going out but I wasn’t feeling 100 percent,” Haley said. “I wasn’t fully rested. I wasn’t all the way through my taper so I was a little tired at first. On each of my turns I felt like I was slipping through the water. “I wasn’t grabbing as much water as I normally could. The

last 12 and a half yards I really started to feel it and got a little lazy was with my stroke. But I still was a lot faster than I was last year.” Now Haley will turn her full attention to the state meet where she and her team have some lofty goals. “I have pretty high expectations for this week and the team has pretty high expectations,” Haley said. “It would be the first time in over 30 years if we could get a trophy. “We should definitely be state champions in the medley relay. Individually my goal is to win both of my individual events and I have an eye on the state record in both events.” Haley will use a little strategy

on Friday in the preliminaries so she can save her best for Saturday’s finals. “In past years I’ve always gone 100 percent on Friday,” Haley said. “I don’t hold back in the state meet but this year might be a little different. But we’ll see when I dive in. I need to do whatever I can to put our team in a position to achieve our goal. “It’s always good to be in the middle lane. You can see where your competition is, but it’s not my primary focus. I know what the facility is like and I know the outside lanes have a little bit of a disadvantage.” Gabby also had a ton of fun at Saturday’s sectionals. “The whole team swam

awesome and it was so fun to see my sisters swim fast,” Gabby said. “It was such a good feeling to see them all swim well.” Gabby was thrilled with her individual performances. She has the fastest time in the state in the 100 freestyle and the second fastest in the 100 backstroke. “That was a really good race,” Gabby said. “It was even more surprising than my freestyle. I just wanted to break 58.00 and to go 56 is mindblowing. But I know I can swim that one better too. I’m planning on going under 56 at state.” The only bad thing for Gabby is that she’s going into state with a big target on her back. “It’s really nice but at the same time it’s scary because you’re

the top seed and everyone is gunning for you,” Gabby said.“As a freshman being top six would just be amazing. Winning the 100 freestyle would just be icing on the cake. But it’s more about the team because we’re really trying to get a trophy.” While Haley may be able to back off a bit on Friday and save her best for the finals, Gabby doesn’t have that luxury. “I’m going all-out on Friday because the meet is won or lost in the prelims,” Gabby said. “If you don’t swim fast you might not get in the finals. I don’t have the option of taking it leisurely. I want to be in the best position I can for finals.” See NORTH, page 13

Expectations high for North By Rob Valentin Sports editor

With four returning starters, the sky’s the limit for Downers Grove North. The Trojans are coming off a 15-13 record last season but with a wealth of experience, North is aiming much higher.

GIRLS BASKETBALL “We have a lot of seniors on this team and a lot of kids who have played together for three, maybe four years,” Trojans head coach Leslie Dehn said. “As a coaching staff we’re hoping that their experience really shines through this year and that they compete in every game we play this year.” Leading the charge as returning starters are senior center/forward Alison Schuster, seniors guards Katie Hunzinger and Marissa Koszewski and senior forward Madeline Boltin. The Trojans also feature senior forward Amelia Echemann, who has been on varsity for all four years but missed much of last season with an injury. “Having kids that played together gives you a nice advantage,” Dehn said.“This is my second year here and they’re used to my system. As a team we play well together and we’re hoping to be a real good defensive team.” The girls also have high hopes for 2010-2011 campaign. “Our expectations are very high,” said Schuster, who has started all four seasons. “We have a lot of good talent on this team and we should have a good shot at winning a conference championship as long as we work hard and stay focused everyday at practice.” “We have a lot of great talent

this year,” Echemann added. “I’m looking for a great season. I have a feeling we can win conference. Alison, Marissa and I are four-year varsity payers. Madeline Boltin, Katie Hunzinger and my sister — Mary Echemann, —are three year varsity players so we have a lot of experience.” Amelia enjoys being able to play with her sister, who is a year younger. “We have a great bond,” Amelia said.“Since we’ve been on varsity we’ve grown closer as sisters, as teammates and as friends.” While North has plenty of experience, there always things to work on. A real focus on defense is what Dehn wants to see out of her squad. The Trojans will also have to deal with having more of a target on their backs. With a new head coach and a lot of young players last season, North was able to sneak up on opponents. “I definitely feel that other teams in conference will see us as high competition,” Schuster said. “We’re definitely not an underdog this year. But as long as we play hard, we’ll be fine.” One area the Trojans will have to work extra hard on is rebounding. The lone starter that graduated after last season was Jackie Burke, the center and a big rebounder. North opened the season yesterday against HomewoodFlossmoor. Starting on Saturday they participate in the Glenbard East Thanksgiving Tournament. Doing well in that tourney is one of the Trojans goals early on. “I know they want to compete in this Glenbard East Tournament and they can win it if they play well,” Dehn said. “Obviously they want to be a contender in the conference.”

Rob Valentin/Bugle staff

Downers Grove North has high expectations for the 2010 season. Leading the way for the Trojans are (from left) Marissa Koszewski, Amelia Echemann and Alison Schuster.

“We’re really excited because we have a lot of returning varsity players,” Koszewski said. “Every year you want to win conference but that’s definitely our goal this year. York is a good team and so is Hinsdale Central. They’re all pretty good teams.” One of the games circled on North’s schedule this year is the annual showdown with Downers Grove South, Friday Feb 11. The Trojans won last year’s game at South. “The kids get pretty pumped up for that one,” Dehn said. “It will be exciting because we’re cross-town rivals,” Schuster said. “We’re both really strong competitive teams so it should be a good game. They have our old assistant coach so they’ll know a lot about us and we know a lot about them.” rvalentin@buglenewspapers.com

NORTH Continued from page 11 Maddy heads to state with the 11th fastest time in the 200 IM and the 12th fastest time in the 500 freestyle. “At state finals I want to break five minutes (in the 500 free),” Maddy said “That would be a six second drop from where I’m at right now but that’s not actually that dramatic in the 500. Having that extra week off will help.” “I love that race. It’s my favorite right now. I like to take it out controlled but I don’t like to go out too slow because then I’m behind the pack. I don’t like to work the first 100 hard at all because you’re fresh and get lose all your energy there. I just try to turn up my energy as the race goes in.” Maddy was also thrilled with the performance of the relay teams. The 200 medley relay led off the meet with a dominating five-second win. Gabby swam the first leg (backstroke), Allison Soper swam the second leg

(breaststroke), Haley swam the third leg (butterfly) and Maddy (freestyle). “It was extremely exciting,” Maddy said.“For the first race of the meet it just started us out on a high note and got us ready for the rest of the sectionals. It let us know our potential, that we can place top three in state.” The 400 freestyle was led by Haley, Jen Dockman, Maddy and Gabby. North also qualified in the 200 relay after taking second in a time of 1:39.66. Leading the way were Marie Sandacz, Soper, Hannah Kaufmann and Dockman. Soper also qualified for the 100 breaststroke, winning with a time of 1:06.89. Meghan Downer will also be headed to state after winning the diving competition with a 411.1. The state meet kicks off on Friday at Evanston High School. The top six swimmers in each event advance to Saturday’s state finals. The next six fastest swimmer on Friday qualify for Saturday’s consolation finals. rvalentin@buglenewspapers.com

South looking for strong season as O’Brien takes reins By Rob Valentin Sports editor

The new Downers Grove South head coach isn’t all that new to the program. Ellen O’Brien, who coached for 17 years at South before coaching two years at the College of DuPage and two years at Downers Grove North, returns to the Mustangs to take charge of a team that was very young last season.

senior forward. “We’ve learned a lot of new plays and running a transition type offense. We have a lot of new drills and it’s a different kind of program, which is nice.” The experience that O’Brien brings to the table is a plus as well.

“Our new coach has a lot of experience and she’s already earned our trust and confidence so I know we’ll have a good season,” Saraceno added. “We went in open-minded and trusted her. The practices are long and tougher. We do a lot of drills to get ready for these upcoming

GIRLS BASKETBALL “I missed being the head coach here,” O’Brien said.“I went to school at South and to come back and coach again is nice. I’m very appreciative of it.” Despite the experience she has at the school there’s still going to be a learning curve. “I think the kids have been trying to understand how I work,” O’Brien said.“It’s different terminology. Sometimes it’s hard because at the varsity level you’re expected to know most of the things. It’s my hope that we get better week by week.” “I think they want to be competitive. They’ve had a couple of seasons of less than what they anticipated. They want to show people they are a competitive group and can play with anyone.” The good news for O’Brien is that she has plenty to work with. Key players like Christyl Thurman, Carly Saraceno, Brandi Bradley, Allison Dec, Kelly Howard and Katie Schmitt return while newcomers such as Sarrah Ludwig and Tori Franklin will contribute as well. “Allison is a little more of a finesse player and Christyl is a little more physical,” O’Brien said. “Allison has some good range and can hit some out side shots. “We have some good shooters. Brandi Badley has been working hard and I think she’ll surprise some people. Tori Franklin is playing with us and is quite fast. She’s still learning the game of basketball.” The players are responding well to O’Brien, which bodes well for their chances at success this season. “I was really excited for her to coach me when I was in eighth grade,” said Thurman, a

games.” “We’ve learned so much more and our coach has been coaching for over 20 years,” Bradley said. “Our team is really together. We’re like a big family and we’re getting along. Coach has high expectations for us and we have them for ourselves too.” Each player brings their own unique attributes to the team and combined, that should help them pick up a good chunk of wins. “I feel like I’m really loud and energetic,” Thurman said. “I’m really good at rebounding and I want to try and get more points in the paint. I want to get fed more in the paint and make sure I finish.” “I hope to lead the team and not let anyone down,” said Saraceno, the team’s point guard.“I’m very comfortable playing there. Last year I was the point guard and I thought I did well and I want to

help the team again this year.” One game that’s already been circled is the showdown with North. O’Brien was an assistant to the varsity team there last season so there will be an added dimension to the rivalry. “When the time to play them comes I hope she gives us all the secrets,” Thurman joked. But I know with the group of girls we have we’ll be fired up and ready to play them. We also strive on beating them and last year we were the only South program to lose to North.” South led last season’s game early on but Madeline Boltin sparked a Trojans rally with six three-pointers. “It’s going to be huge,” Bradley said. “We’ve already started talking about it and how badly we want to beat them. We’re trying to not let Madeline Boltin score anything this time.” rvalentin@buglenewspapers.com

South’s Williams, Taylor lead All-Area Team By Scott Taylor Sports reporter

Dondre Adams, Plainfield South

Those people who watched a Plainfield North football game this year witnessed a piece of history. That’s because running back Kapri Bibbs was breaking records on his way to one of the greatest seasons in the history of Illinois High School football.

Adams battled injuries throughout the season, playing in just seven games as a running back/defensive back. The senior finished with 64 carries for 1,026 yards and 12 touchdowns. He averaged 16 yards per carry and had 252 yards on just six carries in a second round playoff game against Minooka before leaving with a concussion.

FOOTBALL

Matt Alviti, Maine South

For that he is the 2010 Bugle/ Enterprise/Sentinel Football Player of the Year. After winning The Enterprise Player of the Year last year, Bibbs took his game to the next level this season. “That was one of my goals,” Bibbs said of repeating. “To win two years in a row is quite an accomplishment. It makes me feel like everything I’m doing is paying off.” Bibbs ran for a District 202 record 2,646 yards (16th in state history) and 38 touchdowns (14th in state history). His 294 yards a game average is a state record by over 30 yards per game. “The yards per game really stands out,” Bibbs said. “I had no idea I was doing that kind of stuff. I was just coming out every game, trying to do the best for my team.” “Kapri had an outstanding year,” North coach Tim Kane said. “The type of year that should put him on anyone’s AllState list and player of the year ballot.” In just two seasons and 19 games, Bibbs had 4,236 career rush yards (district record, 30th in state) 223 career yards per game (state record) and 61 rushing touchdowns, a district record (18th in state). Bibbs will be heading to Colorado State next year to continue his football career. The opportunity to play right away was one of the factors that led him to Colorado Springs. “They were one of the first schools to offer me (a scholarship),” Bibbs said. “It’s a trust thing. I won’t have to redshirt and can compete for a starting position. I don’t want to accept anything else. I want to be on the field.”

The sophomore quarterback has been nothing short of remarkable this season. Alviti has completed 135-of-197 passes for 2,594 yards with 23 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 500 yards and 10 touchdowns on 118 carries. “He’s having a sensational season and is playing much better than any sophomore I’ve seen in recent memory,” Hawks’ coach Dave Inserra said. “It’s the first time a Maine South football player has been All-Conference as a sophomore. Incredible arm strength and he really grasps and understands the system and defenses.” Mitch Brozovich, Minooka Mark Gregory/Bugle staff

The key cog in the Indians’ offense, Brozovich accounted for 18 total touchdowns this season, 13 on the ground. He carried the ball 145 times for 947 yards. Through the air, the senior completed 41 passes for 633 yards and five scores.

Plainfield North’s Kapri Bibbs ran for 2,646 yards this season in nine games.

Zach Colvin, Minooka The 6-foot, 3-inch senior led a defense that allowed opponents less than 145 rushing yards per game.

Jeremy Burgos, Notre Dame Scott Derrick, Maine South Was the heart and soul of the Dons’ defense recording 112 tackles, 15 for a loss. The senior linebacker also had six sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions. “He didn’t come off the field much,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Hennessey said. “He was a three-year starter for us and led the team in tackles each of the three years. He was without a doubt one of the best defensive players we’ve had here in the last 20 years. He did a great job of being a leader on the field.” On offense, Burgos carried the ball 33 times for 377 yards and a touchdown.

the game,” Inserra said.“He really studies it and understands it. He takes a lot of pride in being one of the two leaders with Connor Klein. He plays with a passion and knowledge of the game that puts him in the right spot all the time.”

Matt Gillis, Romeoville Gillis led the Joliet area with 1,888 yards passing and 19 touchdowns. He completed 116of-216 passes in his third season as a starter. Brad Goffinet, Plainfield East

Caught 41 passes for 815 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior wide receiver in the Hawks’ prolific passing attack. “Scott’s a big-time player and a playmaker,” Inserra said.“He has a way about himself, a confidence where he knows he can beat most defensive backs. He’s really been a go-to guy as of late.” Tyler Fahey, Maine South Led the Hawks in tackles with 72, including 13 for a loss. Fahey had to step up big when Maine South was hit with the injury bug early in the season. “Tyler really has knowledge of

Josh Ferguson, JCA Rushed for 1,868 yards and 25 touchdowns on 145 carries, the Illinois recruit was the leader of a potent offensive backfield. He also caught nine balls for 144 yards. Alex Flores, Plainfield South A senior wide receiver/ defensive back, Flores had the most receiving yards in a game for South with 191. He finished the year with 21 catches for 564 yards and eight scores and added 163 yards rushing on 11 tries with a touchdown.

The senior was 129-of-225 for 1,338 yards on 14 touchdowns for the Bengals. Kalvin Hill, Minooka Junior tallied 1,283 yards and 18 touchdowns on 150 carries this season for an Indian team winning two state playoff games. Dan Holman, Lockport The senior rushed for 1,207 yards and 13 touchdowns See ALL-AREA, page 16

THE BUGLE NOVEMBER 17, 2010

ALL-AREA Continued from page 15 despite missing a game this season. He caught 10 balls out of the backfield for 155 yards and three more scores, giving him 16 total TDs in nine games. Malin Jones, JCA Junior carried the ball 96 times for 1,117 yards and 13 scores. Combined for a nearly unstoppable running duo with Josh Ferguson. He tallied 84 receiving yards and three scores as well. Jones committed verbally to Northwestern University. Mike Laudizio, Plainfield North Defender amassed over 50 tackles with four pass break-ups. Cody Lopez, Plainfield North The Central Michigan-bound linebacker helped lead the Tigers to a share of their first conference championship after amassing more than 100 tackles to go along with four sacks. Sheldon Magee, Plainfield South A do-it-all player, the senior saw time at quarterback, receiver and defensive back. He had 690 yards rushing on 94 carries with 13 touchdowns, while going 56-of-101 for 910 and 15 touchdowns in air. He added 11 catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns. Mike Melone, Minooka The 6-foot 3-inch, 260-pounder was the best lineman on a group that blocked for a running attack that accounted for 3,779 yards rushing and scoring 408 points, including 50 rushing touchdowns. Mike Mettille, JCA Led a defense that allowed only 15.9 points per game and 1,403 yards allowed on the ground. Has seven interceptions from his middle linebacker position. Donald Miller, Romeoville The speedster had 54 catches for 910 yards and 12 touchdowns

on the season. Miller has caught over 90 passes for over 1,500 yards and 20 touchdowns in his career. Antoino Morrison, Bolingbrook A resilient defender, the 6-foot, 3-inch, 220-pound linebacker tallied 71 total tackles on the season, including six tackles for loss, two pass breakups and a pair of sacks. Victor Nelson, Maine South Nelson, who will play football next fall for Boston College, has started 40 games for the Hawks, something almost unheard of in high school football. “He solidifies the entire right side of the line and he’s started 40 games and that’s incredible for a high school football player,” Inserra said. “His wealth of experience and size, he’s just crushing people. And we don’t have to worry about pass protection on his side.” Paul Preston, Maine South The junior running back has rushed for 1,108 yards and 18 touchdowns on just 97 carries this season. “Since we started to use him properly, he’s just been electrifying,” Inserra said. “He makes the defense have to respect the run which opens up our passing game. He can get out of anything and can make the linemen look better.” Kyle Rouse, JCA The lone senior returnee on an inexperienced offensive line, Rouse guided a group that put up nearly 5,000 yards of total offense this season, including 4,267 yards rushing. Jon Smith, Joliet West As a wide receiver, the senior caught 32 balls on the season for 430 yards and six touchdowns. He played defensive back and had one fumble returned for a touchdown as well as one score on a returned kickoff. Zach Taylor, Downers South The senior offensive lineman started for the Mustangs the last two seasons. His blocking was a big reason Josh Williams ran for 1,250 yards this season. “Zach’s been a two-year

starter,” South offensive line coach Terry Kent said.“He’s one of the kids a lot of kids look up to. He’s got a little mean streak in him, which is a good thing for an offensive lineman. He likes knocking people around and does a nice job for us.” Connor Thomas, Notre Dame Did a little bit of everything for the Dons.The senior tailback/ wide receiver rushed for 737 yards and six touchdowns on 89 carries and caught 33 passes for 405 yards with four scores. On defense Thomas was a standout in the secondary

recording 68 tackles and five pass deflections while recording two interceptions, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. “Connor was one of the two guys who never really came off the field,” Hennessey said. “We were better having him on the field. His skill level is at the highest degree and his effort is even higher. He carried us on offense and defense. He called the defensive signals and was instrumental with what he did on offense.” Josh Williams, Downers South The junior tailback was the

workhorse for the Mustangs this season. Despite some nagging injuries, Williams rushed for 1,250 yards on 201 carries. More importantly, he scored 21 touchdowns and had several big games including a sixtouchdown game in the fifth week of the season. Dantrell Wright, Plainfield South The junior receiver broke on the scene, breaking a district record with 828 yards receiving. His 51 catches were the most in a season for South, as was his 15 scores. Rob Valentin and Mark Gregory contributed to this story

Strategies to thaw Cold War with coworker Q. I have a coworker who gets quiet and withdraws whenever I ask a question. I think she feels criticized. Should I ask her why she is behaving like this? A. No, most people don’t think about why they do what they do. When they think about their behavior, it makes them uncomfortable so they don’t think about their behavior. If you ask her to think about her behavior, she’ll just start avoiding you. If you are someone who thinks about your own behavior and is curious about people, you probably have better explanations than they do most of the time.You are at least asking the right questions. Instead of asking “why” — which makes people squirm

— talk about yourself. People get uncomfortable when you talk about them but not when you talk about you. Something like, “Sometimes when people ask me questions I think they are criticizing me. I realize when I ask questions it may look like I’m criticizing other people. Feel free to ask me if it seems I’m finding fault in your work.” You can also just assume your explanation is true and see how that works. If you think your coworker feels criticized, praise specifics of her work and see if her attitude thaws. If your new

approach fixes the problem, then your explanation was accurate. If not, go back to the theory bin. Some folks figure other people should buck up and “get a life” if they get hurt, mad or scared at work. Dealing with emotions is just plain annoying to them, so they tend to be bulls in the china shop. The emotional debris they surround themselves with by refusing to acknowledge people’s reactions eventually derails their success. No one is required to pay attention or learn how to navigate interpersonal relationships at work. Handling other people well takes time, energy and a willingness to learn new tricks. If other people would buck up

and not pester us with emotional reactions, being productive could be a piece of cake. No one is also required to get promoted, be hired or increase a bonus. We all pay the price for our choices. Rewriting the social rules because we don’t like them is about as effective as arguing with gravity. The interpersonal lab at work always offers us a classroom to improve our effectiveness. Your ability to be observant, try new approaches and expand your people toolkit will pay off in a network of allies who will promote you and your career.

The last word(s) Q. I’d like to be assigned to a new project. Will I look arrogant if I ask for it? A. No, but you will look uninterested if you don’t.
