11th district

Veteran politician takes 11th Congressional District Representative Darlene Senger will serve as the Republican candidate in November By Laura Katauskas Staff Reporter

Three-term state Representative Darlene Senger will serve as the Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives 11th Congressional District, winning the general election with a slight lead over her opponents. In what was one of the most highly watched Congressional races in the Illinois primary, four GOP candidates made a run for the seat, Grundy County Board Member Chris Balkema, who was a close second with 33 percent of the vote; businessman Bert Miller with 26 percent, and conservative talk show host Ian Bayne with 3 percent. “We did it, though it was a little bit of a nail-biter, we did it,” said Senger. Though early results showed Balkema taking a lead, Senger won the spot with 38 percent of the vote, after DuPage County tallies were in, her home base in Naperville. She thanked her volunteers and supporters, and gave a personal nod of thanks to several, including Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar. “Voters made a choice, and with that decision, the message is out—we don’t like the direction the country is

moving in and Senger we want you to change it,” said Senger. She said her focus would be to repeal Obamacare and find ways to resolve the debt problem. “Those who know my work, know this: I am a problem solver and a solution finder,” Senger said. She will face off against Democrat U.S. Rep. Bill Foster of Naperville in the general

“today puts us one step closer to restoring responsible, accountable leadership for the families of the 11th district,” senger said. election this November. In the November 2012 race, Foster ousted veteran Republican Judy Biggert in the l1th Congressional District. Biggert claimed a Republican stronghold in the area for more than a decade beginning her reign in 1999. Senger believes Republicans can take it back. “Today puts us one step closer to restoring responsible, accountable leadership for the families of the 11th District,” Senger said in a later statement. “I want to thank my opponents

for the good debate and discussion during this election season, and I want to thank the voters for the trust and faith they put in me today. “During his three-terms in Congress, Bill Foster has been a rubber stamp for more spending, higher taxes and bigger government-including Obamacare. The result of Bill Foster’s votes has been devastating for working families in Illinois.” The new 11th District now stretches through Chicago’s western suburbs and covers five counties:Kane,Kendall,DuPage, Will and Cook. It includes the following communities Aurora, Montgomery, North Aurora, Oswego, Plainfield, Darien, Downers Grove, Naperville, Lisle, Willowbrook, Woodridge, Bolingbrook, Crest Hill, Joliet, New Lenox, Romeoville, Shorewood and Burr Ridge. As a state representative, Senger has earned accolades for her work to hold the line on taxes and promote job creation in Illinois. Recently, the Illinois Chamber of Commerce honored Senger with their “Champion of Free Enterprise” Award for her legislative work to encourage job creation and economic expansion in Illinois. The National Federation of Independent Business honored Senger with their “Guardian of Small Business Award” for her efforts to help small businesses in Illinois expand and succeed.

IDOT announces more bridge work I-55 Bridge, road construction to resume March 31 By Nick Reiher Managing Editor

Just a few hours after spring officially arrived on March 20, Illinois transportation officials announced construction work on both directions of the Interstate 55 Des Plaines River Bridge will resume March 31, weather permitting. And a day after that, they said one southbound lane would close the evening of March 21. Temporary nighttime lane closures on southbound I-55 will continue through March 31. As early as March 31, they said, a long-term closure of one lane of southbound I-55 will begin. The long-term closure of one lane of northbound I-55 will follow in mid-April. Each lane northbound and southbound will be reduced to 13’ - 10”. A series of warning signs will be erected in advance of the lane closure and in advance of the last interchange. Warning signs will be at entrance ramps from Illinois 113, Illinois 129, Lorenzo Road, River Road, Arsenal Road, Bluff Road, U.S. 6 and I-80. Transportation officials said the lane closures are necessary to complete structural steel repairs and painting on both structures; bridge deck patching and deck resurfacing on the northbound structure. Traffic cross-overs after mid-April will be utilized to allow work on the northbound truss structure while the southbound carries traffic across the Des Plaines River. The anticipated completion date for this project is Sept.1, 2014. Heavy traffic is expected in this area with long delays. Last year,

Three people died in connection with construction on the Des Plaines River Bridge on Interstate 55 last year. Channahon Fire Chief John Petrakis told a blue ribbon committee Jan. 23 that most of the calls they had involved people from out of the area. The committee, led by state Rep. Larry Walsh Jr., D-Elwood, met the first time in November to try to find out ways to reduce accidents. The Illinois State Police will be patrolling the work zone 24 hours a day throughout the construction

season with extra troopers. They will enforce what they call the “Fatal Four” violations; speeding, distracted driving, driving under the influence and seatbelts. They urge motorists to make safety their number one priority. IDOT officials said they had many signs out last year, which some drivers either ignored or did not realize that construction was as intensive as it was. Michael Wiater of IDOT told the panel they are confident a new Intelligent Transportation System plan will help.That system will be able to detect backups immediately and let drivers know via electronic signs to slow down, take caution or take an alternative route due to an accident or lengthy backup. System sensors, eleven portable changeable message signs and cameras will monitor traffic to give real-time updates of travel times and stopped conditions throughout the work zone. As traffic builds, the signs will change with appropriate messages for motorists. Some changeable signs will be placed in advance of the alternate route designated for this project. An alternate route using I-80 and Illinois 47 to bypass the I-55 construction zone has been posted.

On the Democratic side, Kelley rates. We have all been extended

to the point where we cannot do more.When you have these budget issues, you must look at the core mission of the police department.” Ficarello, 57, is a retired deputy chief from the Will County Sheriff’s Department. He worked in special operations, investigations and at the Will County jail. He also worked as a part-time officer for the Posen police and is a licensed private detective. He proposed zero-based budgeting to address the budget problem and seeks to create a special victims unit to address serious crimes such as domestic violence, sex crimes, crimes involving children and the elderly and people who have special needs. Some of the existing detectives could be specially trained to handle these crimes. “If I were elected sheriff, I would spend the first 100 days working through initial changes and problems,”he said.“During the next 100 days, I would spend 50 days in a patrol car without wearing a rank or an insignia. Then I would work the next 50 days in the Will County

jail as a correctional officer. “I would then be able to see the department from the bottom up and make manpower decisions. The only way to do a feasible manpower study is to get in the trenches and see what it takes.” He said he would also like to use the federal drug asset seizure accounts to fund the department. “There is $2.1 million in these accounts, and the money can be used to offset expenses that would typically be funded by the county board and the taxpayer.” Kelley,47,is aWill County Sheriff’s Police sergeant, former executive board member of ASFCME 2961, former executive board member of the FOP Labor Council and a former executive board member of MAP 123. He said many co-workers asked him to run. “The department in the last four to six years has not progressed forward in any way. As far as personnel are concerned, we can’t catch up.We do not have the manpower we need.The morale in the department is one of the lowest I have seen my 25 years there,and it

is based on the lack of progression throughout the department, the lack of manpower on the street and in the Will County jail. I want people to want to come to work.” He also wants to change the structure of the officers’ shifts in the patrol division and the Will County jail. “They currently work eight-hour shifts, but most of the larger departments have gone to a 10- or 12-hour shift structure.Then there would be twice the amount of manpower working patrols during the peak hours of the day, making it safer for the community.” Kelley also suggested forming a partnership with their drug unit and the Cook County unit to work on the heroin problem. “In my office, we have charged the person who supplied a deceased person with heroin. If we can lock them up for dealing and contributing to a death, they would serve more time.” >> to see the full versioN of this story, check out buglenewspapers.Com

Dems use newfound hammer on each other Democrats were able to knock off one of their own by running a union-backed candidate By Nick Reiher Managing Editor

I remember an episode of the old “Andy Griffith Show” where Deputy Barney Fife decides to run against his boss, Sheriff Andy Taylor. He pretty much vilifies his boss – whom I believe also was supposed to be his cousin in the show – until the very end when Andy gets up before a riled-up crowd of Mayberry folk and quietly tells them why he has done the things of which Barney has accused him. When he is done, Andy quietly sits down among his fellow townsfolk, who all look pretty ashamed by now. No more so than ol’ Barn, who just about wants to tuck his head into his tweed coat. At the end, Barney apologizes and weakly holds out his hand in a gesture of hopefully being forgiven by Andy. Andy, being Andy, of course smiles and shakes Barney’s hand. All is forgiven. Except it looks as though Aunt Bee still wants to invite Barney over for a five-finger sandwich. I’m with her.There is absolutely no way I would have been able to shake the hand of a person who spent the better part of several months dragging me and my reputation through the North Carolina dirt. In fact, I probably would have asked him for his gun and his one bullet and hit him over the head with both and told him to get his bony butt out of town. Clearly,I am not candidate tinder.

a variety of happenstance, they wound up with a tie on the board: 12 Democrats and 12 Republicans. With County Executive Larry Walsh, a Democrat, able to break a tie, that gave the Democrats on the board something they hadn’t had in more than 30 years: a majority. Since then, the County Board Democrats have been able to make the rules, fill the committee chairmanships and just have the overall knowledge that if things get sticky with their Republican counterparts, they have the hammer. That is,until last year when more than 1,000 Will County employees went on strike after they could not reach an agreement with county officials on a new way to calculate benefits that would have them paying more out of pocket. A few weeks later, the strike was

over. The county settled for salary increases that would amount to 14 percent over three years, but the union members, as well as other county employees, still would have to pay a percentage of the premium of their chosen plan, rather than a percentage of their salaries. County officials said in some cases, that could double the out-of-pocket cost for employees’ insurance. But they also said they could not afford to keep paying for the higher premiums. Or rather, the county’s taxpayers could not afford to subsidize the employees’ premiums. It would have been nice to say that was that, and move on. But some County Board Democrats with strong ties to labor instead decided to take aim at members of their own party for looking out for the taxpayers as a whole instead of the union members. The Democrats were able to knock off one of their own on March 18 by running a unionbacked candidate, Lauren StaleyFerry, against Diane Zigrossi, who had been very visible during negotiations as chairman of the Insurance and Personnel Committee. I have been in that position: stabbed in the back by people whom I thought were my friends or at least peers on the same team. And I’ve had to sit and work with them again after that. It’s not fun. Frankly,in this case,I don’t know how you go back to being one, big happy family on the County Board floor after that. Maybe, you just don’t. If not, the union may have won on March 18, but county Democrats as a whole suffered a big loss.

General ManagerTom Castagnoli has been with the Promenade since 2008, watching it surpass the tough economic period of that time, and grow to be the single largest sales tax provider for the village of Bolingbrook and employs more than 2,000. “The economy got better, and people discovered us,” said Castagnoli. “We’ve done a lot of advertising and promoted events to get the physically get people to the center. We’ve done that, and now people gravitate here.” Castagnoli said sales have

increased steadily each year and he expects that to continue to despite the change in management. “It is not unusual for a shopping center to be sold by a developer and is quite normal,” said Castagnoli. “The customers will not really see a change. If at all, it will be any improvements that Starwood would want to make. Starwood has acquired many malls and is considered a good player.” He said events such as the Farmer’s Market would continue as in the past.

Let trust override suspicions in the week ahead. Fight any dour mood that tries to set in before you get into the swing of things. You might not like to pinch pennies, but a dollar saved is as good as a dollar earned.

A choice might appear in the week ahead that affects your pocket money, and since there’s a 50 percent chance of being wrong, it’s best to hold off on major decisions. Remain magnanimous in the face of small irritations.

You could concentrate on finances or your lack thereof to the exclusion of other more important matters. Don’t hide away with a calculator when affectionate others long for your company. Pamper your partner this week.

Those who are egging you on may not have your best interests at heart, but you can profit from their zeal. Take criticism with a grain of salt and hold off on making significant purchases in the early part of the week.

Greener pastures may beckon in the upcoming week. Important changes that are outside your control may be in the works, however, so you’d be wise to not begin anything significant until the dust settles.

You may struggle to get to the bottom of a problem with a significant other or co-worker, but once you discover the truth it will be easy to overcome. Be sure to get plenty of sleep in the week ahead to offset nervous energy.

Loved ones may be generous with affection and willing to forgive passing spats in the early part of the week. If romantic ardor has cooled, this is the perfect time to stoke up the fires and prove your commitment.

Raiders sweep MVP honors Ryaen Johnson totals 8 blocks

Gage Davis tallies 24 points in win

By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

By Mike Sandrolini Sports Reporter

After not winning a game for the first four years of the Voyager Media Prep Shootout, the North boys team made it back-to-back wins Saturday night with a 98-83 victory over the South squad at the Sullivan Center on the campus of the University of St. Francis. The North was paced by a pair of Bolingbrook players, as Gage Davis led the scoring with 24 points and Shakur Triplett added 23. Triplett dominated the first half with 20 points before intermission, while Davis tallied 20 after the break including four three-pointers. “I was in a race with my teammate, Gage Davis, for MVP,” said Triplett, the Ashford University recruit. “So I was just trying to beat him. Every time he scored, I was just trying to get a bucket and just trying to have fun. It was really fun; I really enjoyed it, to be selected for the all-star game.” Davis did edge out Triplett for the Most Valuable Player Award, making it the second year in a row a Raider has taken home the award, as Ben Moore won last year. “We were having fun and trying to see who could get it,” said Davis, who is playing for IPFW next season.“We try to make a name for ourselves at the Brook. It was nice to come out here and play in this game. I wish we could come out >> see BOYS | page 12

The sixth annual Voyager Media girls all-star basketball game Sunday night at St. Francis University’s Sullivan Center was the last hurrah for four senior members of the record-setting 2013-14 Maine East team. The quartet, consisting of forwards Shaylee Sloan and Maria Protic, and guards Elanta Slowek and Jazlene Gonzalez, helped the Demons win a conference title and post 20 victories—the first time in school history that a girls basketball team has achieved either benchmark. They also were instrumental in lifting the North all-star team to 64-38 victory over the South. Sloan, Protic, Slowek and Gonzalez combined for 24 points, and all four were out on the floor for a four-minute stretch during the second half. I told Jaz(lene) on the bench,‘Just when I was starting to let it go, and now I see them play again ,’ ” said Maine East head coach Karol Hanusiak, who coached the North all-stars. “This was pretty yo V h special; this was nice.

Bolingbrook’s Shakur Triplett had 23 points for the North.

>> BOYS, from page 11 here and do one of these every weekend. This is the last thing I could do for the Brook, so get the MVP of an All-Star game is great.” Bolingbrook players now own four of the top five highest scoring games in the Prep Shootout,as they join Moore (27) and Antoine Cox (21, 2010) on the list. Plainfield North’s Ryan Crowe still holds the top spot with 42 in 2009. The one thing different for the North team is that unlike the South squad that features teams from the same few conferences, the North has more of diverse grouping, pulling from five separate leagues. “I didn’t really didn’t know anyone on my team and it is always cool to get out and meet new people and they seemed like really cool people,” Davis said. Joining The Raider duo in double figures for the North were Paul Engo, III of Downers Grove South and Shane Murray of Lisle. “I was just happy to be invited here, to come out here and play with these guys,” Engo said. “All these guys are really good. Coming into the game,I just wanted to have fun and have that last experience of playing high school basketball.” “This was a nice place to be because it was pretty much all of the best players in the area. It was more or less a fun game than a

serious game. Everyone was trying to throw down dunks. I came out here to just have fun; it was fun,” Murray added. “I expected seeing better competition (here) than I did the whole season (in Class 2A). All of these players are better than what I’ve seen all season. I had a lot of fun with it.” Also getting in the books for the North team were Lisle’s Jeremy Glavanovits (4), Ray Greco of DGN (3), Bolingbrook’s CJ Redmond (5), Danny Spinuzza of DGS (7) and Andrew Palucki of Maine South (7). “This was a lot different,” Palucki said.“Maine South is more structured; we have a role and we know what to do. Here, you just go out and play; it’s kind of like AAU. It’s kind of fun to play relaxed and just have fun.” The South team was paced by 16 points from Lockport’s Grover Anderson. “Unfortunately we didn’t get the win, but it was still all fun,” he said.“We have played against each other since grade school and now we get to play with them.” Two of the players that played together all season accounted for one of the major highlights of the game, as Joliet Central’s Jonah Coble hit teammate Antonio Dyson for a thunderous Alley-Oop >> see BOYS | page 14

He told me to throw it, I threw it.” “I told Jonah I needed one and he said, ‘let’ do it right here’ so as soon as it opened up, we got it,” said Dyson, who ended with six points on three dunks. For Dyson, who attended Lockport sophomore year, it was a chance to play with former teammates as well. “It felt good playing together all on one team,” he said.“A team like this would have won state.” The other highlight came on an oop from Romeoville’s Travis Lacey to Joliet West’s Allias Roberts-Burnett.

“It was a great experience, it was awesome,” said RobertsBurnett, who had 4 points. “That was all I really wanted to get that one big dunk.” Lacey added 12 points to go with his highlight assist. “I was very happy,” he said. “I was able to score some points, have some fun with a great group of guys out there.” While the North team was comprised of several conferences, the South was just two, the SouthWest Suburban with Lockport and the Joliet schools and the Southwest Prairie, which houses Romeoville, Minooka and the Plainfields, who they have seen a lot of each other all season. “It was fun to play with a good group of guys that play the game well,” said Minooka’s Adam Alexander, who had two points.

“We are all mutual friends, we all play AAU, so it was great to come out and play together.” “It was different, but was a good feeling to get to play with guys you have fought against all year,” said Plainfield Central’s Logan Velasquez, who scored five. Also scoring for the South were Calvin Brooks (10) and Miles Snowden (8), both from Plainfield South, Joliet West’s Elliot Fizer (2) and Plainfield East teammates Nick Novak (2) and Miles Ward (4). With all the Plainfield schools on one team, it made Ward wonder what if. “People always talk about if all the Plainfields were one school,” he said.“This was a chance to see how that would be. It would be pretty fun.” Mike Sandrolini and Scott Taylor contributed


Sports >> GIRLS, from page 11 “We were texting each other last night (Saturday), ‘One last time; one last time.’ ” The North led from the outset and never relinquished its lead the entire evening, save for a 4-4 tie early in the game on a free throw by the South’s Jenae Rowe of Joliet West. The North increased its margin to 7-4 on Kate Moriarty’s (Chicago Resurrection) three-point play and a basket by Bolingbrook’s Ashley Drain. “I liked playing against the other team because I knew some of the girls over there so it was kind of fun even though it was competitive,” said Drain, who tallied 10 points. Drain’s teammate, 6-2 center

Ryaen Johnson, hit a jumper to give the North its first double-digit lead of the contest, 19-9. Johnson ended up scoring eight points, but it was her dominant defensive performance that enabled her to be named the game’s Most Valuable Player. Johnson blocked eight shots. “This is my first MVP (award of any kind) so I’m definitely excited,” said Johnson, who’ll be suiting up collegiately at Loyola University next winter.“But again, it was just about having fun. It was really good, especially playing with my teammate Ashley, and just playing with the (other) girls, the energy they brought. Everybody was just really working hard and going hard. It was fun.” A Naomi Mays three-pointer

made it 22-16, but that would be the closest the South would get the remainder of the game. “It was a lot of fun, I had a great time,” the Lockport senior said. “I just came out here to have fun and I really enjoyed it and I am glad I played. I was a great experience.” The North closed out the half with Downers South’s Claire Hardy—who led all scorers with 11 points—taking a feed from Sloan for a layup and a 24-16 advantage. “Going in, I didn’t think I was going to be scoring 11points,” said Hardy, who had not picked up a basketball since the Mustangs’ season ended a month ago.“I just came here to have fun and play some basketball. I didn’t know what to expect. All the girls were

THE BUGLE MARCH 27, 2014 super friendly and just having fun. It was nice coming back out here because I really miss it.” Maine East players closed out the scoring for the North in the first half. Protic drove the baseline for two that put the North up, 2616, and a Sloan free throw enabled the team to take a 27-17 halftime lead. “It was pretty awesome,” said Sloan, who netted 10 points and will be playing at North Park

off the court as well and helping teammates during practices,”Protic said.“For me it’s about us as a team growing. We did end up winning conference. When they needed me to shoot, I was there to shoot and if they needed rebounders, I was there as a rebounder. It was just a team role where if they needed me I was there.”

Sports The North held the South without a point for over five minutes to begin the second half until a basket by Andreana Johnson (four points) of Plainfield East ended the drought. “I really liked to play against players from within the conference that we have played against all year,” Johnson said. “I really got to

meet the girls and I really enjoyed myself. It was very fun to play in this No. 4 jersey one more time.” Rowe, Mays and Raytoria Richardson of Joliet Central each finished with seven points to lead the South in scoring. “I had a lot of fun,” Richardson said. “It was fun playing with players that we have played

against all year.You know how to play them, but you don’t know how to play with them. This is a very good season of basketball for me and it was fun way to wrap it up.” Also suiting up for the South team was Chavon Banks of Joliet Central (four points), Jada Brown and Jacqui Eubanks of Plainfield South, Valencia Chandler (five points) and Kailey Foster of Joliet West, and Brittani Wayne of Plainfield North. “This is the last time in the Steelmen uniform and I am going to miss it and I really enjoyed coming out here,” Banks said. “It was a good last game ever for me,”Wayne said.“I had a great time playing with my former teammate (Andreana) Johnson. We used to play together at Plainfield North. “It was great to be on the floor with her one more time and to be on the floor once more in the Tiger uniform.” Putting on their school colors for the last time on the North team was Sierra Birdsell of Lisle, Eden Olson of Benet, and Breanna Sobotka of Resurrection.

Benet takes second in state By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Mark Gregory/Bugle Staff

Josh Yesufu drives to the basket for two of his six points in the Class 4A state final game.

PEORIA - Heading into the IHSA Class 4A state championship game Saturday night at Carver Arena, no one was giving Benet much of a chance against Whiney Young, the state’s No. 1 team and Dukebound Jahlil Okafor, the No. 1 ranked senior player in the nation. After the opening quarter, it looked as if the masses were correct, but Benet forged back and went on an 8-0 run late, putting a scare into the Dolphins, but coming up just short, falling 46-44. “We knew we were the underdogs, we were picked to lose this game by 27 points and that really fired us up to be honest,” said Benet senior Sean O’Mara. “To come into the game and think we were going to lose would have been stupid. We got here and we deserved the same respect that they got. We had to play great teams to get here and we played some of the same teams they did and the spotlight was not new to us, but they are a great team and they got us tonight.” Young opened the first quarter with an 18-10 lead, while the Redwings held them to just 28 points the rest of the contest. “They scored 18 points in the first quarter and 28 in the next three,” said Benet coach Gene Heidkamp. “I think the key for us is, we didn’t shoot very

well in the first half, we had the looks and we were unable to put the looks down. We stabilized the defense, but we fell just a little short. I think this team is a very, very good team and I think we proved it here tonight. They really showed here that they deserved to be in the championship game.” The battle of the big men was more on the defensive end, as O’Mara and Okafor each had eight points. O’Mara added eight rebounds and three assists. “He is a tremendous player,” O’Mara said of Okafor. “He is going to Duke for a reason, he is No. 1 in our class for a reason. He played very well tonight. We double teamed him and tried different stunts on him. He is very physical. It is not often I find kids that can match physicality. I know three kids in the state, me, Clff (Alexander of Curie) and Jahlil. We are the only ones that can body up with each other.” Colin Bonnett led the team with 12 points, while Collin Pellettieri added 11. Despite the loss, O’Mara is proud of what Benet (25-8) accomplished in the game. “I am really proud of the way my team played,” O’Mara said. “We worked since summer of last year to get to this position and I would have liked it to go another way, but just being here with these guys is great. This is a great team and I am so proud to be their leader and their captain. It has been a blessing to be a Redwing.”

SEMIFINAL

Benet took control of the game an 11-2 second half run that pushed the game from a 2121 tie to giving the Redwings a nine-point lead late in the fourth quarter en route to the 38-33 win over Edwardsville. Bonnett and Josh Yesufu each tallied 10 points to lead the Redwings to the state final matchup.

SUPERSECTIONAL The Redwings almost didn’t advance to the state semifinal as they needed a 62-59 comefrom-behind win over Glenbard North in the Class 4A Hinsdale Central Supersctional. Benet had the most losses of any team to advance to the state final four since 2010 when Simeon advanced and won the state title with nine losses. To advance to state, Simeon’s then-senior Brandon Spearman nailed a desperation three at the buzzer to tie the game against none other than Benet in the Hinsdale Central Supersectional. Simeon would win 58-50 in double overtime. Pellettieri was 8 of 16 from behind the arc, with the final shot coming in the final 25 seconds with the Redwings down by two. A defensive stop on a block by O’Mara and a pair of Liam Nelligan free throws completed an epic comeback as Benet advanced to the state semifinal. Follow @Hear_The_Beard mark@buglenewspapers.com
