BOLINgBrOOK eLeCTION

Bolingbrook’s longestserving mayor since 1986, Roger Claar continues for perhaps his last four years The past election will keep many of the same leaders at the helm with a few new faces throughout the township. While vital school board and township races had several candidates aiming to win a seat, many races were uncontested. Bolingbrook’s longest-serving mayor since 1986, Roger Claar continues for perhaps his last four years, as he hinted at the state of the village address. In addition, village clerk Carol Penning and trustees Michael Lawler and Joseph Morelli will serve another term. Long-time trustee Sandy Swinkunas decided not to run for re-election. Maria A. Zarate ran unopposed and took her seat. All involved ran together on the same Bolingbrook First Party Slate. Incumbent Bill Mayer reclaimed his seat as DuPage Township Supervisor and the Republican Party prevailed winning all four seats. Alyssia Benford, Ken Burgess, Maripat Oliver and Sheldon Watts will serve as DuPage Township trustees. Both the Fountaindale Public Library District and the Bolingbrook Park District candidates ran unopposed as well.

ST. DOMINIC CELEBRATES 50 YEARS Even before St. Dominic’s had a home of bricks and mortar, a community was formed. Fifty years later, St. Dominic’s parish has grown into a family that stretches between two churches and throughout the community. St. Dominic Church celebrated its 50th Anniversary April 15; the culmination of a variety of events kicked off with this fall’s Oktoberfest, calling attention to the community’s long history as the village of Bolingbrook was

shaped. St. Dominic Parish was established on April 15, 1963. Bishop Romeo Blanchette appointed its first pastor, Fr. Edmund Gregory before a church was even built. Future St. Dominic parishioners first attended Mass at St. Andrew the Apostle Church in Romeoville, where the pastor was provided housing. As Bolingbrook was growing with residential development, Dover Construction donated

their building headquarters to serve as its first home. That first building still stands between the Fire Station and the parish office on Briarcliff. By the late 90s, the parish continued with firsts, hiring its first lay person to lead the school; adding new positions to the church with a parish nurse, a youth minister, and made certain to have bilingual staff in all of its offices.

New law will allow Illinois residents to carry a concealed firearm at the cost of $150 for a five-year license

Though Illinois lawmakers passed legislation for concealed carry, the time when residents will be afforded the right to carry through with the law is months away and fraught with other tentative issues, says Will County Board Member and Illinois State Rifle Association President Don Moran. The new law will allow Illinois residents to carry a concealed firearm at the cost of $150 for a five-year license. Gun owners also would have to pass a background check and complete 16 hours of training.The Illinois State Police will have 180 days to make a concealed carry application available to the public. Those applications will take 90 days to process. That timetable means

ADMINISTRATIVE CUTS TO HIT VILLAGE In an ongoing effort to trim costs, the village cut department heads and combined administrative duties for its largest factions: police and fire and public works and community development. In reviewing the budget to be adopted in May, Mayor Roger Claar said the village found the means to save money, pure and simple. “We continually look for ways to save money, and we made

the decision to trim and there still will be other changes,” said Claar. Fire Chief Dave Litton’s position was eliminated and Police Chief Kevin McCarthy took on a new role, covering administration for both the police and fire departments. A new department head will cover both Community Development and Public Works.

TAXING BODIES TO PAY FOR HOSPITAL’S NEW TAXEXEMPT STATUS

BUGLE FILE PHOTO

residents are still months away from legally being allowed to carry a weapon. Gun owners without a license would still be prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm. While thankful the law passed, Moran said the legislature failed to act in a timely way and believes their delay and the language in the new law continues to infringe on the rights of Illinois citizens for up to nine more months. According to Moran, in 2012, the House enacted the Illinois

Firearm Public Awareness Task Force to examine the impact of passing a concealed carry law, comparing the expectations of such a law against other states of similar size, geography and demographics. Moran reports the findings dictated that at worst, there would be no change in violent crime in Illinois and at best a reduction. In addition, Moran said concealed carry has been in effect in every other state with no state considering repealing it.

A state-wide debate over earning hospitals tax-exempt status resulted in a win for Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital and a shortage for all of its taxing bodies, who now owe back taxes to the hospital totaling more than $5 million, excluding 2013’s taxes. Carrying the brunt of the burden is the Valley View School District 365u, to the tune of nearly $3.6 million, a refund from 2009, 2010 and 2011. The news came with little warning earlier this year when the Will County Treasurer sent out a letter informing the district and all other taxing bodies within the village of the of the required refund. A new law signed in June 2012 expanded the definition of charity

care. According to the new law, tax-exempt (non-profit) hospitals can keep their exemption if their uncompensated care figures equal or exceed the estimated property tax liability, which is determined by the fair market value from an impartial third party. After lobbying efforts, tax exemption qualifications have been expanded to include patients’ unpaid debts, the costs of elderly patient services not covered by Medicare, Medicaid patient services, and the costs that teaching hospitals incur to train physicians and conduct research. Adventist is now collecting property taxes paid for several years while their tax-exempt status was pending.

Mayor Roger Claar reported that this was just the beginning of a serious problem that is going to require a lot of money and time to correct. After a comprehensive study, the village estimates that there are13,000 trees in the public parkway

‘The World Wars – Pages in Time’ subject of 2014 Great Read Great Read is presented by consortium of public WEB and private organizations to promote literacy, LINKS reading, conversation, community in area The entire world changed on July 28, 1914, when a Yugoslavian nationalist assassinated Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand. That event sparked a diplomatic crisis that led to World War I (191419). World War II followed 20 years later.Those conflicts caused radical changes in European leadership, warfare, economics, politics and society in general. A century after WWI started, these two all-encompassing conflicts are the subject of the 2014 Great Read community literacy program,“The World Wars

– Pages in Time.” The Great Read is presented by a consortium of public and private organizations to promote literacy, reading, conversation and community in the greater Plainfield area. Plainfield-area community members are encouraged to read any books about the two World Wars.

Across Plainfield. That year, a panel hosted by the Plainfield School District and Plainfield Public Library debated the theme of government censorship as illustrated in Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury’s science fiction classic. In 2008, Reading Across Plainfield became The Great Read and new partners from Joliet and Bolingbrook joined the program to encourage broader community participation, better reflect the areas served and emphasize the program’s literary focus.

THE BUGLE JANUARY 2, 2014

Horoscopes Don’t jump to conclusions during the week to come. Give everyone the benefit of the doubt and continue to approach others with the holiday spirit, even if you feel challenged to defend your work or reputation.

Some things simply must be done before the end of the year. This week might present you with more than one challenge as you try to fit everything into a hectic schedule. Cooperate with others.

Time marches on. Accept the changes you can’t control with good grace. Each year ends only to be replaced by a new one. In the same way, other areas of your life are altered irrevocably.

Know when to hold them and know when to fold them. There may be numerous demands on your time and patience throughout the week ahead, but you have the wisdom to meet challenges with aplomb.

Remember the carpenter’s wise old saying: “Measure twice and cut once.” In the week ahead, carefully consider every step before you take action. A careless mistake could cause enormous extra effort later.

Don’t let diction cause friction. Misunderstandings are possible in the week ahead, so make it a priority to communicate as clearly and calmly as possible. It’s better to say too much than too little.

Time is on your side. If a major project is nearly complete this week, don’t rush or force it. There may be some nagging details you’ve overlooked. Don’t feel you must compete with someone for attention.

You don’t need to be in charge of a classroom or stand at a podium to be respected for your knowledge. Jot down creative ideas as they might become useful during the coming week.

As you travel along your way this week, accept the speed limits. Aggravations and arguments over personal value systems, money and possessions can be avoided.

Be thrilled to the gills. You might feel you’re in over your head during a few tense moments in the week ahead, but exciting holiday plans offer an incentive to get back in the swim quickly.

You may find a way to get your way, but it won’t necessarily make your day. In the upcoming week, there may be a tendency for people in general to be focused on one-ups-manship rather than fair play.

Take a breather. To get through the first half of the week unscathed you might be wise to adopt an attitude of healthy respect for authority. Don’t initiate anything of importance or make impulsive changes.

Raiders winning but still looking for rotation By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Mark Gregory/Bugle Staff

Ashley Drain and the Raiders went 2-0 in the opening day of the Hillcrest Holiday Classic.

Normally on the heels of a 50 point win in the opening game of a holiday tournament, a coach and team would leave the locker room happy, or at least content, with the win. That was not the case Thursday when Bolingbrook blew out Queen of Peace 53-3 to kick off the Hillcrest Holiday tournament in Country Club Hills. The Raiders left a lot of points behind with mistakes on their part. “We lost a lot of points on missed layups, dropped passes and unforced turnovers.We have a lack of focus and are an undisciplined team,”said Bolingbrook coach Chris Smith.“At the end of the day, all this did was give us another number in the win column. The one positive is that it continued to help expose our weaknesses.The kids see it, the coaches see it, the parents see it.” Smith said despite the low points Queen of Peace scored and the fact that they were held scoreless the entire second half, there were still lapses in the Raider defense. “Queen of Peace competed, they are just not a very talented team,” he said.“I would honestly say it was more of them not being talented from an offensive standpoint than it was us being a good defensive team. No disrespect to them, disrespect to us because we are just not a very good team right now.We are still in that searching process.”

As he continues to search for the right mix of players, Smith is playing everyone on the roster to get a look at every player he has at his disposal. All 14 players saw game action and 11 players scored for the Raiders. “At some point my rotation is going to have to get shorter and shorter. Right now I am looking for seven or eight kids that can stay focused for four quarters of basketball,” Smith said. “Those will be the seven or eight kids when the going gets tough that I will have to run with.At some point, I will have to go with my horses and I am still searching for my horses.” Aysia Bugg led Bolingbrook with 14 points, while Alexis Cowan tallied seven and Cierra Stanciel added six. In the second game of the tournament, the Raiders (6-1) defeated Lockport 55-45. Bugg and Ryaen Johnson each scored 13 points and Cierra Stanciel added 10. “This tournament gives us a chance to play some games,” Smith said.“We had a stretch in Tennessee then we came home and played three games in two weeks. This gives us a chance to play four games in three days and that is what we need, more court time.We beat up on each other so much in practice, it is good to play some games. “We have some growing to do. We are competing against ourselves right now.” mark@buglenewspapers.com

BIG BEN

FANTASTIC FOOTBALL

It was a great season for Bolingbrook’s Ben Moore on the basketball court. The 6-foot, 8-inch center averaged 16.5 points, 11 rebounds, three blocks, four assists and two steals per game, while shooting more than 63 percent from the field. Moore was tabbed as Voyager Media Player of the Year as well as the Voyager Media Prep Shootout Most Valuable Player. Moore signed to play at Southern Methodist University for Hall-of-Fame coach Larry Brown and has been productive

Valley View school district had an exciting season on the gridiron as both of the district high school teams, Bolingbrook and Romeoville, advanced to the playoffs this year. Bolingbrook, behind a stingy defense, went undefeated in the regular season, winning the SWSC title. Romeoville, which featured a balanced offense, had a 5-4 regular season and advanced to the playoffs for the first time in 12 years.

POWER SURGE

It has been a few years Romeoville has produced a top-tier college football player, however, the Spartans got back on the map this season when Cameron Stingily rushed for 1,081 yards and nine touchdowns for the 12-1 Northern Illinois University football team. Stingily joined Heisman finalist Jordan Lynch (1,881 yards) to become the only Huskie teammates to both rush for more than 1,000 yards in the same season. Stingily is the first NIU running back to pass the 1,000-yard mark since Chad Spann rushed for 1,429 yards in 2010.

TONY SMITH Bolingbrook basketball coach Tony Smith announced May 2 that he was leaving his coaching job as head girls basketball coach of the Raiders to take the same position at HomewoodFlossmoor High School. Smith took over the Lady Raiders in 2001 and posted a 329-39 record, winning four state titles, including three straight from 2009-11. While at Bolingbrook, Smith coached two of the most decorated players in state history in Morgan Tuck and Ariel Massengale. Tuck was Illinois Ms. Basketball as a freshman and a senior and was Gatorade Player of the year in 2012, while Massengale was Ms. Basketball in 2011. He was also coach of the McDonald’s AllAmerican West team in 2012.

The annual football game between Bolingbrook and HomewoodFlossmoor was dedicated to the memory of Alec Anderson, who died in the summer at age 54.

2013 Continued from page 12 found unresponsive in an H-F exercise room where he had been working out alone on a treadmill, according to school reports. Teams under his supervision as athletic director at three different Illinois high schools (Evanston, Urbana and Bolingbrook) won seven state championships, five of them coming during his 7-year tenure at Bolingbrook. Bolingbrook and H-F unveiled the Alec Anderson Memorial Trophy this season, a traveling trophy that will be passed between the schools every season to the winner of the head to head SWSC match-up.

PAIGE RYDBERG With a third-place showing at the Midwest Sectional Championship last month, Valley View School District’s Paige Rydberg is headed to the 2013 National Championships in Omaha, Nebraska in January. The top four girls at the sectional in the intermediate level competition qualified for nationals. Rydberg, 12, was the third best of 36 girls at the intermediate level, representing more than 20 states. She advanced to sectionals after winning the Upper Great Lakes Regional in October, where she took first out of more than 60 girls. Rydberg was also victorious in the Illinois Grand Prix in September and the Broadmoor Open in June.

GIRLS BASKETBALL

After years of waiting the season the Romeoville girls basketball team finally had its team of senior dominance last year. The Spartans won the Southwest Suburban Conference as well as winning a regional title. While the Bolingbrook girls basketball team had made winning state titles an expectation, the Raiders lost in the sectional to Whitney Young.

FIRST-YEAR CHAMPION Heading into her first season on the collegiate level, Bolingbrook graduate Morgan Tuck knew it wouldn’t be easy. At 6-feet, 2-inches tall,Tuck was regularly the tallest player on the floor in high school, allowing her to dominate the prep game. Now at the University of Connecticut, she is only the fifth tallest player on her team and she has had to adjust her game to fit. That tough road had a happy ending to it as UCONN won the 2013 NCAA Division-I Women’s Basketball National Title, defeating Louisville 93-60 in the championship game April 9. Tuck tallied six points and grabbed seven rebounds in the title game. During the season, Tuck averaged 6.4 points and 3.4 rebounds per game, while averaging 7.1 points and 2.7 rebounds per game in the post season, including her seasonhigh 18 points against Idaho in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.

Angels open with fast start By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Mark Gregory/Bugle Staff

Jordan Weigt led all reserves with nine points on a trio of three pointers against Thornton.

Everyone who knows anything about Will County girls basketball knows of Joliet Catholic Academy and its top Division-I prospects. Maybe less known but equally as important are the non-starters on the Angels’ bench. Those players were on display in the opening game of the Hillcrest Holiday Tournament Thursday in Country Club Hills in a 71-32 win over Thornton. “We are excited.We are trying to increase the depth on our bench and that showed today,” said Joliet Catholic coach Ed Schodrof. “They shared the basketball really well today. Hopefully that depth will pay off for us during the season. (The media) likes to focus on the starters, but I like to focus on the whole team and today I was most impressed with how they shared the ball. They had two or three touches back and forth to each other and then the shot and that means a lot.” The JCA bench tallied 29 points in the game, paced by freshman Kennedy Weight, who had nine points. “We want to get kids meaningful minutes in the game and not just when we are up 30 or down 30,” Schodrof said. “We are really trying to get them meaningful minutes so that we can trust everyone on the team when they are in the game. We have 11 kids on the roster and we want 11 kids who can play.” The reserves know they have to always be ready to contribute. “We have to be ready when we go on the court and we know that we can all play,” said

sophomore reserve Mia Farell. “We know how to set each other up for the best shot. No one tries to take over the game. Everyone works as a team and we know what we can do and we all go in and do what we can do.” Schodrof likes how the Angels all play within their abilities. “We all have limitations in life and if we can live by that creed, we will all be OK,” he said. “I think they did a really nice job of that today, knowing what their roles were.” “We are all really strong and we don’t really have a weak player on this team. Every person contributes,” said sophomore reserve Kaitlyn Williams. “We just do what we need to do and the team will be good.” Nicole Ekhomu led the team with 15 points, while Christina Ekhomu and Jasmine Lumpkin had nine each. Nicole Ekhomu and Weigt each drained a trio of three pointers for JCA, something they are better at this season. “Most teams played us in a zone so far this year and they did last year too,” Schodrof said. “So now that adds another element to the game that we can stretch them out.” In the second game of the first day, Joliet Catholic (9-0) defeated Stagg 57-33 Lumpkin paced the team 12 points, while Farrell added eight. Despite the fast start,Schodrof said the team is still looking to play its best basketball. “We have a long way to go,” he said. “We aren’t happy or satisfied with anything. We are just trying to get better every game and every practice.” mark@buglenewspapers.com

How to fix work problems through time travel Q. I often find myself with problems I can’t predict at work that make my workday rotten. I notice you offer ideas on how to see problems coming. Is there any technique I can use to spot problems before they ruin my day? A.Yes, write a list of the last four problems that stressed you out at work and a detailed description. Now write down everything the four problems had in common. Now consider this question: If you could time-travel, is there one proactive behavior you could have done to minimize all these problems or keep them from happening? Most of us, unfortunately, tend to make the same mistakes over and over again that result in different problems. Behaviors we may use include: not speaking up, being sarcastic or pouting. We usually can only see our contribution to our problems in the rearview mirror as we review our history and decision making.

Fortunately, the future is yet unwritten, so we can apply our newfound wisdom to changing our bad interpersonal habits before we create more problems. That is, if we can just see and stop our habitual behavior. One of the enormous powers we all have is to see we have more than one choice when facing a problem. There was a famous psychiatrist, Milton Erickson, who was shockingly effective in changing human behavior. All his students kept pestering him to write down his theories, but he was reluctant to reduce his thinking about people into narrow categories. The most Erickson would say about what drove his problem solving is that he thought most people were just a little too rigid in their problem solving. The point he was making was this: We all tend to get stuck in behavioral loops where we don’t see that in any given situation, there are perhaps 40 possible

choices. We immediately rule out choices that may make us feel uncomfortable, foolish, embarrassed, wrong and other difficult emotions. However, the truth is some of our most powerful options will work, but first they will make us uncomfortable. Consider being wrong, for instance. In any interpersonal situation, if you admit you may be wrong you’ll immediately take any arguments about the other person’s self-esteem off the table. Once the other party isn’t trying to defend their core value, most people are pretty happy to fix problems with you. However, you might righteously want to stick to your guns about how you are right and they are, well, wrong! Review your list again and ask yourself what options you aren’t seeing because you have been

Review your list again and ask yourself what options you aren’t seeing because you have been limited in the emotional discomfort you are willing to tolerate. limited in the emotional discomfort you are willing to tolerate. Ask yourself what options you might be able to include if you weren’t worried about feeling bad but were very concerned about getting results. Even famous adventurers get stuck in behavioral loops.Take that pioneer called Dorothy exploring that land called Oz for instance. She thought she was young, inexperienced and had no talents or skills to speak of. Consider her surprise when she discovered that the only thing keeping her from getting what she wanted is that she didn’t see the power she had all along.

The last word(s) Q.I often find myself in meetings where I am not understood. I end up explaining and explaining but it

just seems to make my coworkers frustrated. Is there a better way to get my point across? A. Yes, stop talking, ask more questions, and repeat in your own words what you are hearing until you are certain you know what others want. As the musician Jimi Hendrix once said, “Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.” (Daneen Skube, Ph.D., executive coach, trainer, therapist and speaker, also appears as the FOX Channel’s “Workplace Guru” each Monday morning.

Travel RICK STEVES’ EUROPE

Avoiding scams & pickpockets

Europe creative place when it comes to petty thievery, travel scams By Rick Steves Tribune Content Agency

The Louvre is Europe’s oldest, biggest, greatest and secondmost-crowded museum (after the Vatican). It is home to Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo,Michelangelo statues and paintings by the greatest artists from the Renaissance to the Romantics. But scams can be avoided. Smart travelers are less likely to be victims, so be aware of these travel scams, which I’ve been tracking thanks to my readers and my European travel guides.

Rotator Bluff

You’re going through a London

subway turnstile and you feel something in your pocket, but by the time you turn around, it’s already too late - the thief throws your wallet to his accomplice on the other side of the machines.

Attractive Flirt

You’re a single male traveler who is suddenly approached by a gorgeous woman on the street. Sometimes the scam artist is disguised as a lost tourist or a gregarious local who (seemingly) just wants to show you his city.

Slow Count

Cashiers who deal with lots of tourists thrive on the “slow count.” Even in banks, they’ll count your change back with odd pauses in hopes that you’ll gather up the money early and say “Grazie.”

The Well-Dressed Thief
