ork to reduce the bottleneck at Interstate 55 and Weber Road, long identified as one of the heaviest and most dangerous traffic areas in Illinois, has been a priority for local officials for years.

SEE cRoSSRoAD PAGE 2

The union representing Will County employees on Oct. 29 filed charges against the county in response to a letter sent to county union members. Representatives of AFSCME Local 1028 say in the letter, Will County Executive Larry Walsh “threatened to fire workers who exercise their legal right to strike and to revoke their health insurance. Both threats are illegal under the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act.” In the letter signed by Walsh, union members are advised that if they strike, they are not eligible for unemployment compensation, cab be temporarily replaced with a new worker and “in some cases, you can lose your job forever if a permanent replacement is hired to do your job.” They also are advised striking workers are not eligible to remain on the county’s group health plan.

news crossroad Continued from page 1 State Rep. Natalie Manley, D-Joliet, recently had a bill passed aiming to cut some of the red tape holding back construction of a new Interstate 55 and Weber Road interchange. “Weber road is the major corridor in our area, linking our communities and business hubs together,” said Manley. “As Will County grows, we need to make sure that this major roadway can handle our increased traffic flow so that residents aren’t burdened each day with unnecessary congestion, and so that businesses are able to succeed.” The Will County Board first announced the project in June 2009, approving a Letter of Intent with the Illinois Department of Transportation for the improvement of the I-55, Weber Road Interchange located between Bolingbrook and Romeoville. Will County funded the initial $6 million necessary to begin Phase I engineering, and the Illinois Department of Transportation agreed to be the lead agency. That first phase was expected to be complete by this summer, but has extended to early 2014, according to information from IDOT. The goal of the study is to identify transportation deficiencies, develop improvement alternatives, recommend preferred improvements, and identify and evaluate impacts of a preferred transportation improvement for I-55 at Weber Road. The study area encompasses two miles of Weber Road starting at 119th Street, continuing south past and including the I-55 interchange to 135th Street. “While Romeoville continues to attract top businesses to locate here and create jobs, the Weber Road Interchange continues to be a problem for growth in the area,” said Romeoville Mayor John Noak.“I am pleased that Representative Manley is advocating on our behalf to move this project forward.” IDOT will host a public hearing on the proposed construction project from 4 to 7 p.m. Nov. 13 at the Romeoville Hall, 1050 West

Manley invites the public to attend and view exhibits and hear more about plans to reconfigure the interchange and widen Weber Road. Residents are encouraged to share their comments and input as well. Phase II engineering, land acquisition, construction and engineering for this project is included in IDOT’s fiscal year 2014-2019 Multi-Modal Transportation Improvement Program but is contingent upon the sale of approximately 200 acres of unused property currently owned by the Illinois Department of Corrections. Former state representative Brent Hassert worked to outline proceeds from the sale of the vacant Stateville Correctional Center property be used to fund the project. The sale of the property has yet to materialize. “Representative Manley’s legislation removing one of the final stalling points on the Weber Road Interchange project is a huge priority for Romeoville and the entire region, especially as we are working on initiatives to enhance our local economy and bring in new businesses,” said Don Moran, Will County Board District 3 and Vice Chair of Will County’s Transportation Committee. “Weber Road at I-55 is one of the biggest transportation bottlenecks, and thankfully we will soon be one step closed to resolving it.” Contingent on future funding for the completion of Phase II engineering as well as land acquisition and construction engineering, construction would first begin in the summer of 2015 and take 24 months. The total project cost has been estimated at $132 million.

IDOT to release Illiana RFQ, hosts outreach event Interested firms or project teams will be asked for a Statement of Qualifications that will be used to determine their eligibility The Illinois Department of Transportation will issue a Request for Qualifications on Friday, Nov. 8, seeking submission of qualifications by private industry partners to design, build, finance, maintain and operate the Illinois portion of the Illiana Corridor utilizing an Availability Payment structure. Interested firms or project teams will be asked for a Statement of Qualifications that will be used to determine their eligibility in the upcoming Public Private Partnership (P3) process. The Indiana portion of the project will be developed later under a separate P3 project with procurement by the Indiana Finance Authority and the Indiana Department of Transportation. “We’re eager to begin the procurement process on the Illiana, which will bring jobs, promote business growth and boost the economy in Illinois,” said Gov. Pat Quinn in a press release. Private sector participation is being sought to spur innovation that will lead to delivery of the Illiana Corridor more quickly and efficiently, and at less cost, officials say. To ensure coordination of the multi-state Illiana Corridor Project, IDOT and INDOT are working together to coordinate technical

requirements, tolling policy, the federal environmental approval process, and construction schedules. Following the release of the RFQ, IDOT will host an Outreach Event for Illinois Disadvantaged Business Enterprises and other industry firms interested in bidding on work for the project. The event will be held Dec. 4, 2013, at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Conference Center in Joliet. “The Illiana project is a wonderful opportunity for minority, disadvantaged and women-owned businesses in Illinois, which represent the backbone of our economy,” said Quinn.“The forum is an important step toward connecting our small businesses, laborers, and engineers as they work together on improving our transportation system and fueling our state’s economy.” The federally mandated DBE Program provides contracting opportunities to small businesses owned and managed by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. “We’re really proud to be offering this opportunity to small businesses in Illinois, and we’re excited to be using creative financing sources to get it done,” said Illinois Transportation

Secretary Ann Schneider. “More work for Illinois businesses and employees, and less burden on Illinois taxpayers.” For more information about the project and Outreach Event and how to register, visit www.

We’re really proud to be offering this opportunity to small businesses in Illinois, and we’re excited to be using creative financing sources to get it done.” - Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider IllianaCorridor.org/P3. The RFQ and submission requirements will be posted

Team finds way to give back to community St. Scholastica School 8th grade girls’ volleyball team hosts “Serve-A-Thon” to raise money for Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation

Submitted photo

Tuesday was “Don’t be ghoulish, drugs are foolish” day at Brooks Middle School which means because she is wearing red, Brooks Middle School 6th grader Estefania Melo receives a sticker at lunchtime from cashier Naz Mohammed.

Sometimes finding a way to make volleyball practice educational and fun is a challenge, but when the St. Scholastica School eighth grade girls’ volleyball team made a fundraiser out of practice, the girls found a way to combine both. On Oct. 24, the team from the school in Woodridge hosted a “Serve-A-Thon” to raise money for the Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation. For every serve made over the net, a parent, grandparent,community member or friend pledged to help with the cause. The girls’ raised more than $600 for the Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation, whose mission is to develop lifelong relationships with donors to secure philanthropic gifts that enhance and support the mission of Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital. “We love seeing children who want to get involved with philanthropy” Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation Executive Director Derek Cazeau said. “No matter who you are, how old you are, or how involved you have been with the hospital in the past, you can always make a difference. These girls are an inspiration to other youth in their communities because of how selfless they were in finding

a way to make a difference. We are blessed to have young philanthropists like this in our community.” One player, Sarah Baran, helped come up with the fundraiser. She made 48 out of her 50 serves. “Two of our teachers were diagnosed with breast cancer and they are now survivors,” Baran said. “They inspired us to give back, because we know the money we raise will help others in need.” Each teammate knows a friend or family member who received help at a hospital. This common story inspired the girls to give back. “When the girls came up with the idea, we thought it was a great opportunity for the community” said Brian Stankus, St. Scholastica School athletic director.“The girls were so excited to give back in a way they could all work together. It really shows how much these eighth grade girls have grown together and how they can continue to inspire others.” Photo caption: Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation Executive Director Derek Cazeau, far left, with members of the St. Scholastica School eighth grade girls’ volleyball team.

THE BUGLE NOVEMBER 7, 2013

Horoscopes Drive and determination can carry you far. Getting organized and being efficient in the week ahead will get you even further. Make it your priority to complete assignments and meet deadlines.

Bake a cake. In the week ahead, you might be preoccupied by business and material matters. It might be a good idea to set aside some quality time to reconnect with your domestic, emotional side.

What seems feasible today could prove impossible by the end of the week; not all the facts are in and conditions may not be ripe. Use business know-how to handle finances with finesse.

In the week to come, stick to routines that have served you well in the past. If you cross all your “T’s” and dot all your “I’s” no one will need to take a red pencil to your work. Hold off making major purchases.

Put a lid on it. Turn down the heat and don’t let frustrations boil over in the week ahead. Family commitments may take up a great deal of your time or interfere with your ability to make career progress.

Take pride in careful analysis. To be successful in the week ahead, examine the facts and abide by the rules. Remember to handle your money as though it was all you were going to get.

Sometimes more is less. In the week ahead, friends may urge you to dive right into a new project or accept a proposal that could prove costly. You’d be wise to take more time to look at all the angles.

Put down an anchor and remain close to shore. This is not a good week to set sail on a new journey or begin anything new. Your best bet is to ride out any pressing urge to make investments or life changes.

Get what you need and need what you get. In the upcoming week, you should be cautious about spending and conscientious about paying bills on time. Daydreaming could be counterproductive.

Control freaks put on a show. In the upcoming week, you might find it difficult to make headway with your goals because someone else wants to run the show or inject much more than their two cents.

Set the alarm and don’t oversleep this week. Too much work and not enough play might make Jack a dull boy, but too much play can interfere with work. The boss might not overlook a black mark.

You can ride high on a bubble of inspiration in the week ahead, but don’t neglect mundane tasks. People will be less forgiving than usual if you make mistakes or don’t hold up your end of a bargain.

Styles set to clash in 8A second round By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

When Bolingbrook and Marist meet up in Friday night’s Class 8A Round 2 match-up, something has to give. The two teams could not be more opposite as the Redhawks rely on winning games by scoring at a video-game pace, averaging 42.3 points per game this season. The Raiders are more methodical on offense, as they average 32.9 points per game, they just usually take time to get there. “That is just the nature of our offense,” said Bolingbrook coach John Ivlow. “We see a different look each week and we get under center and feel them out and feel them out and then we make our adjustments and then we are usually pretty good.” Marist will allow Bolingbrook to put points on the board, as it has allowed on average of 30.4 points per game through week one of the postseason. The key to the game will be if the high-powered Marist offense can score on Bolingbrook’s stingy defense. Arguably the top defense in the state, the Raiders allow only 6.7 points per game. In their 48-12 win over Bloom Township in the playoff opener, the Trojans tallied both touchdowns against the Raider reserves, as the starters played only the first series after halftime. The third quarter Bloom TD was the first points Bolingbrook has allowed in the third quarter this season. The Raider defense forced four fumbles, recovering two. Standout defensive back Parrker Westphal added an interception, all of which gave

the offense great field position to score. “We make plays and the offense capitalizes on that,” said defensive back Julian Huff. Julian was the first of the three Huff brothers to make a big play in the game, as he opened the scoring in the first minute of the second quarter

when he recovered a punt that hit the offensive lineman in the helmet and caromed to the fiveyard line. Huff secured it at the three and ran in for the score. He would add two sacks and a forced fumble. Brother Jacob Huff would help end the Bolingbrook scoring against the Bloom

kicking game, as he blocked a punt with 9:13 left to play in the third quarter that was recovered by Joshua Collins and returned five-yards for the score. It was Jacob’s second blocked kick of the year, tying Julian for team lead. In between those scores,

oldest brother Jaden had a 27-yard TD run and a 17-yard TD catch from Quincy Woods. Woods added a pair of 1-yard QB sneaks for scores, while Dariel Greer found Mike Valentine for a 33-yard score on the final play of the second quarter. See CLASH, page 13

Valley View seasons end at sectional By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

For the Bolingbrook girls cross country team, this season was all about progression, as it featured several young runners on the varsity squad. So, when the team finished competing and they knew they had individuals who were in contention to advance to the state meet - that was a step in the right direction. Freshman Trianna Rodriguez ran the Class 3A Hinsdale Central Sectional in 18 minutes, 25.68 seconds and placed 24th overall in the race. She finished seven places out of the final individual qualifying place, which went to Plainfield South’s Alexis Grigg, who ran the race in 18:13.15. “I started off a little slower than usual,” Rodriguez.“I thought I was closer to 19th. I saw a lot of people in front of me and just tried to pass them.” Raider sophomore Marissa Caputo was 40th overall in 18:51.12. “This was hard with a lot of hills and tough competition, but it was kind of a motivator to have people in front of you to have people to chase and know who you have to pass,” she said.“It is hard to go out with a steady pace when you just want to give it your all.You have to be steady the whole race. I wanted to get a personal record and stay in the 18s and I did that. There is no better time to get the PR than in the sectional race.

20:13.05. Senior Jessica Tykane (102nd, 20:42.71) and senior Katelyn Hettinger (107th, 20:51.99) competed but did not score. As a team, the Raiders were 11th with 274 points. “They had a good day today. They have been working hard. Their goal all season was to get to sectional as a team and they exceeded that,” said Bolingbrook coach Meredith Overdorf. “This is a tough meet. It is a tough course and they knew that. The girls ran well and we couldn’t have asked for anything else. “We had a few girls that had a shot to get down state. We have a very bright future ahead of us. We will miss the upperclassmen, but our top four runners are all returning.” Romeoville had a pair of runners in the girls race, as senior Sierra Scanlan was 93rd in 20:14.19 and senior Samantha Pagan was 131st in 22:34.97.

BOYS In the guys race, Romeoville competed as a team, placing 19th with 516 points. Junior Mike Samuelson was the first Spartan through the chute, placing 88th in 16:34.85. He was followed by scorers sophomore Ian Irvine (101st, 16:47.30), freshman Justin Suits (114th, 16:55.62), freshman Carlos Ibanez (129th, 17:20.47) and junior Matt Bush (130th, 17:20.59). Senior Evan Banasiak (138th, 17:43.85) and senior John Kosiek (140th, 17:47.21) competed but did not score. Bolingbrook only had one runner in the race as junior Jonathan Cook finished 77th in 16:19.19. mark@buglenewspapers.com

CLASH Continued from page 11 That TD pass capped off a 42-point second frame for Bolingbrook and put the running clock into effect for the second half. All involved know the road will be tougher against Marist. “That is a great team coming to town here. It will be a great game. I hope everyone comes out to watch it,” Ivlow said. “They are your typical 8A football team. They are big and solid, but we are used to playing against the physical teams. We

are not very big, but we will go toe-to-toe with the big boys.” Marist is paced by Notre Dame-bound receiver Nic Weishar and fellow receiver Flynn Nagel. Quarterback Jack Donegan makes use of his receivers, while Peter Andreotti is the Redhawks’ leading rusher. “We are excited,” Julian Huff said. “We watched their game (Friday night). I like their running back (Andreotti). He is fast and they are physical on the offensive line. Nagel and (Weishar) and good players. A lot of their top guys play defense too, but they are all going to big schools.” Huff said it will be another

chance for the Bolingbrook defense to try and play an even better game. “We have read all the articles and we have seen the videos and everyone says how good we are, but it is crazy to say, but we can get so much better. People just don’t know how much better we can get,” he said. “We do what we do because we have known each other for a while. People talk about how defenses play well because they have played together for a long time, but we have lived together for a long time. We have known each other for a while and that is what makes this defense run.” mark@buglenewspapers.com

Bolingbrook wins playoff game By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Mark Gregory/Bugle Staff

Krissa Gearing had a team-high 11 kills against Joliet Central.

The Bolingbrook girls volleyball team battled injury all season and because of the rough start to the season, could not wait for the playoffs to begin. “We had a slow start to the season with injuries and it was just a funky start to the season, so the girls were really, really wanting to get started on the right foot,” said Bolingbrook coach Andrea Bercot. “I told them that the beauty of the playoffs is that everyone is 0-0 and I think they were inspired to be able to start off the way they wanted to.” The Raiders did just that, as they won the opening game of the IHSA Class 4A Bolingbrook Regional 25-18, 25-14 over Joliet Central. “We had a great week of practice and we just had the right mindset coming in for this game,” said senior outside hitter Krissa Gearring. Gearing paced the team with 11 kills, while Megan Beilawski and Olivia Simpson had four apiece. “Krissa finished her swings and we have been working with her and he whole team on just playing fearless,”Bercot said.“They

practice so hard and we want to see them translate that hard work onto the floor. It was nice to see that they went out and wanted to take the win and not wait and see what would happen.” Unfortunately the streak could not continue, as Bolingbrook fell to eventual regional champions Waubonsie Valley 25-15, 32-30. Waubonsie Valley defeated Wheaton Warrenville South 25-16, 19-25, 25-17 for the win. The 32-20 score in the final game was how the Raiders wanted to end the season, whenever it had to end. “The beauty and the curse of the playoffs is that every game could be your last,” Bercot said. “We want to make sure that if it is our last, we leave it all out there on the floor.”

ROMEOVILLE The Spartans saw their season come to a close in the regional opener, falling to Wheaton Warrenville South 25-17, 25-5. “It was sad to see (the season end), but the girls have worked hard all season and they see the changes,” said first-year coach Melissa Zimmer. A new coach and a young team made it a rebuilding season for the Spartans. “We learned more technique and a lot of the little things that coach taught us,” said junior Nicoletta Crowley. “We need to put that all together as a team. Every year we are going to keep stepping it up and playing for success. We all got along. This team had good attitudes and good spirit.” Although she is listed as a setter, Crowley plays whatever position she is asked. “We all do whatever coach wants and whatever helps the team,” she said. Zimmer is excited to have Crowley and a host of other returners back next season with a year of experience in her system under their belts. “We all learned a lot this year,” she said. “We have a great idea of many things that we need to do for next year and there are several players willing to make the necessary changes and that is promising.” mark@buglenewspapers.com

Spartans come up just short in playoffs By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

When the Romeoville football team left the field Friday night after their season-ending 1814 loss to Rich Central in the first round of the Class 6A state playoffs, they did so with their heads held high. That is because not only are this year’s Spartans the first team to advance to the state playoffs in 11 years, they also did

so following an 0-9 campaign a year ago. “It was a great season, without a doubt,” said Romeoville coach Jeff Kuna. “Obviously we are all a little dejected right now because we honestly felt we could win this football game and I still feel we could have won the game. Offense played well in the first half, defense picked it up in the second half.” All of the game’s scoring came in the first half, as both

Lewis upsets D-I Loyola Lewis University juniors Julian Lewis (Flossmoor, Ill./ Homewood-Flossmoor) and Ryan Jackson (Bolingbrook, Ill./ Riverside-Brookfield) keyed a 23-10 run over the final 6:46 to propel the visiting Flyers to the 82-70 victory over Loyola at Gentile Arena on Saturday (Nov. 2) afternoon. This is the Flyers’ third victory over a Division I team since 2010. Lewis, who finished with a game-high 24 points, scored nine of his tallies over the final 2:56 of regulation. He was 10-for-14 from the field and had a team-high eight rebounds and two blocks. Jackson picked up 22 points, including a 12-for-14 outing from the free throw line, along with four steals and three assists. For the game, Lewis shot 59.6% (28-for-47) from field goal range. Junior forward David Niggins

(Naperville, Ill./Naperville Central) knocked down 4-of-5 from three-point land to finish with 12 points, as the Flyers shot 64.3% (9-for-14) from beyond the arc. “I’m proud of our team,” Lewis head men’s basketball coach Scott Trost said.“Julian was sensational. Jack (Ryan Jackson (Bolingbrook, Ill./Riverside-Brookfield)) hit some big shots, as did David and Gabe (Willams). Lewis also took care of the ball against Loyola, as they committed just 11 turnovers on the afternoon, including just three in the second half. Loyola guard Joe Crisman led four Rambler players in doublefigures with a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds. Rambler forward Christian Thomas had 14 points, while Jeff White and Nick Osborne each added 12 points in the loss.

defenses got stingy after the intermission. The Spartans were able to move the ball, they just had a hard time cracking the red zone in the second half. The game ended when Romeoville failed to convert a fourth-and-one from the Rich Central 27 yard line with 1 minute, 20 seconds left on the clock. “We didn’t play bad offensively, we just stalled drives,” Kuna said.

“Every drive we had we moved the ball and got first downs but when we crossed midfield, we stalled a little bit. Coming down to the end, we had the ball, we marched it 80 yards and we gave ourselves a chance to win. Give them credit, they tightened up. That was a good football team we played and a great football game. In these conditions both teams played the best we could and unfortunately for us, they were four points better

tonight.” Kuna knows the experience and the way they performed in the playoff game will go a long way toward fueling the returning players for a return trip to the postseason. “Being the first time in the playoffs, we were ready. We prepared, we played as hard as we could,” Kuna said. “It wasn’t like we came out here and we See SHORT, page 16

SHORT Continued from page 15 were turning the ball over. We showed we belonged in the playoffs and we are going to be back in the playoffs. We have a lot of good things coming back.” One of those returners, junior Gil Whitaker paced the offense, as he trucked through the mud on the all-grass surface for 170 yards and a touchdown. Senior Miguel Ford added the other Spartan score. “I am really proud of this team, “Whitaker said. “We came together since day one. Ever since the last game at the end of last year, we worked hard for this because we all wanted it. We wanted to make the playoffs and we went out and put it all on the line every week. After this game, we are going to jump right back in the weight room and do like we did last year and next year we will come out even harder. Next time, we will do it right.” mark@buglenewspapers.com

Class 5A is about to get interesting By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

The southern bracket of the IHSA Class 5A football playoffs has been dubbed as one of, if not them toughest of any class in the state. Well, after most teams had a first-round cake walk, the fun is about to begin. No. 4 seed Joliet Catholic Academy (9-1) is coming off a 63-12 win over Urban PrepEnglewood in the opening round and will host No. 5 Kaneland (91) at 7 p.m. Saturday. The Knights defeated Hampshire 35-0 in its opener. Kaneland is paced by quarterback Drew David, who completed 17-of-24 passes for 240 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Brandon Bishop caught 7 passes for 92 yards before leaving on a stretcher, while John Pruett caught five balls for 91 yards. Isaac Swithers had 17 carries for 67 yards. For JCA in the win, the Hilltoppers did not risk injury, playing their starters sparingly. Junior Mike Gruben opened the scoring as he took the opening kickoff 73 yards for the score. For Gruben, a blocker on the return team, it was the first time all season the kickoff came his way. The Hilltoppers saw action from both quarterbacks, as Nick Morrison returned from injury. He had one touchdown pass, while sophomore Cade Earl had a pair of TDs on only four pass

attempts. Mike Ivlow saw limited action in the game, but still had an impact, gaining 109 yards on four carries and scoring a pair of touchdowns. The second round contest appears to be destined to be a game of which defense can step up. Through the first game in the post season, the Hilltoppers are averaging 41.8 points per game, while Kaneland is at 39.2. Defensively, the teams are equally as close as JCA allows 15.1 points per contest and the Knights only 10.1. With the return of Morrison to the lineup, JCA only has one player remaining on the sidelines from the rash of ankle injuries players suffered in the win over Marist Sept. 27. That player, senior lineman J.B. Butler, has his cast off and could make a return for the game against Kaneland. mark@buglenewspapers.com

Real Estate & Business

Effective managers deliver bad news with right words Q. I’ve been a manager for 15 years and am puzzled at how badly my employees take negative feedback. I attempt to diplomatically tell them when they are not team players or are rude or inappropriate, but they always end up offended. How do I deliver bad news without getting a bad reaction?

A.You can deliver bad news without a bad reaction if you avoid triggering shame in your employees. People at work feel personally attacked and confused if you use vague labels like “inappropriate.” People feel motivated to listen and change when they know exactly what behavior you want. Without meaning to alienate

others, we trigger shame when we use vague descriptions that imply a person is inadequate or bad. Shame is different from guilt.When we feel shame we believe another person is making a judgment about our value as a human being. Guilt is remorse over something we have done and can do differently in the future. If your employees believe you think something is basically wrong with who they are, they will become hostile and demoralized. Next time you provide an employee with feedback, make it clear that you both face a problem and tell them what you need to help with the solution. Make it crystal clear with the words you chose that the employee is not “the problem.” For instance, if you need accurate reports on your budget, do not tell the employee that he needs to stop being sloppy or careless.You are just using a negative label that will trigger shame. Instead tell the employee you need his help making sure there are zero math errors on the next budget. Even well meaning managers get frustrated and use negative labels. Instead of calling

We take a job because we have to pay bills. But each of us hopes to find a workplace where we feel valuable and competent. employees rude, stubborn or lazy, consider the problem you need solved and the behavior you want. Focus on treating your employee as an ally in resolving the problem and be specific about what you want them to do. You’ll be impressed at what magic specific requests will create.Very few employees get upset at being asked to arrive on time for a meeting. Every employee will be upset if instead you accuse them of being irresponsible, thoughtless and late. Using the right words at the right time with the right person can seem like wizardry when you see the different results you get. I’ve seen teams go from being demoralized and conflict-drenched to cooperative, harmonious environments just because everyone stopped using language that triggers shame. We take a job because we have to pay bills. But each of us hopes to find a workplace where

we feel valuable and competent. Despite what you learned as a kid, the magic word isn’t just “please”; the magic words include,“Can you help me do this?” You won’t just transform your team if you change your language; you’ll encourage other managers to make similar changes.When they see the magic you are working within your department, everyone will want to know your new trick!

European beer basics By Rick Steves Tribune Content Agency

When I’m far from home, I become a cultural chameleon. I eat and drink regional specialties with gusto, feasting on steak and red wine in Tuscany and stuffing down tapas at midnight in Spain. So when I travel to countries that are known for their beer, I morph into the best beer aficionado I can be. Germany is synonymous with beer, and there’s no better place to drink up than in Bavaria. German beer is regulated by the Reinheitsgebot (Purity Decree) of 1516 - the oldest food and beverage law in the world - which dictates that only four ingredients may be used: malt, yeast, hops and water. You can order your beer “helles” (light but not “lite”) or “dunkles” (dark). Beer gardens go back to the days when monks brewed their beer and were allowed to sell it directly to the public. They stored their beer in cellars under courtyards kept cool by the shade of chestnut trees. Eventually, tables were set up, and these convivial eateries evolved. My favorite beer garden (and German beer) is an hour’s drive outside of Munich at the Andechs Monastery. The stately church stands as it has for centuries,

UNION Continued from page 1 They could, the letter continues, purchase COBRA coverage for $1,938.71 a month for family PPO coverage. Lastly, striking workers would not be able to accrue vacation, sick leave or any other benefits after missing one full pay period. Walsh also provided phone numbers if employees had questions, and advice if employees who wanted to continue to work during the strike felt threatened

topping a hill at the foot of the Alps. Its Baroque interior - and its beer hall - stir the soul and stoke the appetite. The hearty meals come in medieval proportions. Belgians would argue that they, not their German neighbors, have Europe’s best beer.With about 120 varieties and 580 different brands - more than any other country locals take their beers as seriously as the French do their wines. But the best beers are not available from a tap. The only way to offer so many excellent beers fresh is to serve them bottled. The best varieties generally are available only by the bottle. Belgian beers come in various colored ales, lagers and white (wheat) varieties and are generally yeastier and higher in alcohol content than beers in other countries. Lambics, popular in Brussels, are the least beer-like and taste more like a dry and bitter farmhouse cider. Another Belgian specialty is the Trappist beer - heavily fermented, malty and brewed for centuries by monks between their vespers and matins.Try a Westmalle, Rochefort, Chimay or Orval. Belgians are exacting consumers when it comes to beer.Most special local beers are served in a glass unique to that beer. Connoisseurs insist that each beer’s character comes out best in the proper glass.

If a bar runs out of a specific glass, the bartender asks if you’ll accept a similar glass. Many Belgians will switch beers rather than drink one from the wrong glass. Another devout beer region is the Czech Republic. Czechs are among the world’s most enthusiastic beer drinkers. Whether you’re in a restaurant or bar, a beer, or “pivo,” will land on your table upon the slightest hint to the waiter, and a new serving will automatically appear when the old glass is almost empty. After the end of the Cold War, most former communist countries had lots of workers going to Western countries for jobs. But Czechs say their workers mostly stayed in the Czech Republic as they couldn’t imagine living in

a place without their beloved local brews. And Czechs don’t go from bar to bar like many other Europeans.They say,“In one night you must stay loyal to one woman and to one beer.” The Czechs invented Pilsnerstyle lager in Plzen, and the result, Pilsner Urquell, is on tap in many pubs. Other good beers include Krusovice, Gambrinus, Staropramen and Kozel. “Budweiser Budvar” is popular with Anheuser-Busch’s attorneys; Czech and American breweries for years disputed the name “Budweiser.” The solution: Czech Budweiser brewed in the city of Ceske Budejovice is sold under its own name in Europe but marketed as “Czechvar” in the United States. The British are equally

passionate about their pubs. Short for “public house,” pubs are a basic part of the social scene and an extended living room. Many were built in the late 1800s, when pubs were independently owned and land prices were high enough to make it worthwhile to invest in fixing them up. Brits take great pride in their beer, and many think that drinking beer cold and carbonated, as Americans do, ruins the taste.

trying to enter their workplace. Walsh’s letter was a “transparent attempt to scare and intimidate” workers“by threatening to illegally fire employees in retaliation for exercising their legal right to strike,” union president Dave Delrose wrote in an open response to Walsh. “The citizens of Will County are ill-served by your attempt to provoke a strike,” Delrose told Walsh. “Rather than intimidate AFSCME Local 1028 members ... [y]ou would be better advised to direct the county’s negotiators to return to the bargaining table to reach a fair and equitable

settlement.” The union has asked the Illinois Labor Relations Board to hear the charges and “order Walsh to rescind the threatening letter, post notices acknowledging his illegal threats in county worksites, and return to the bargaining table.” Bruce Tidwell, the county’s Human Resources Director, said recently they gave the union their “best and final offer after the county “moved significantly” since the beginning of negotiations, offering step increases, as well as some salary increases.And, he said, the county has lowered its offer on employee contributions to the

health insurance plans, as well as allowing employees to phase in some of the increases. County officials have said they have to start asking employees to pay more toward insurance because of the increasing cost of health care. Until now, county employees had paid between 1 and 2 percent of their salaries, pretax, toward health care. The county now wants employees to pay a percentage of the premium based on a salary scale: Those earning under $30,000 would pay 4.7 percent toward their health insurance; $30,000 to $50,000 would pay 7.2

percent; and those earning over $50,000 would pay 13.2 percent toward their plan. The union said additional charges were filed over the county’s refusal to continue goodfaith efforts to reach a settlement in long-running negotiations over a new union contract. AFSCME represents more than 1,200 employees in the county court system, health department, highway department, Sunny Hill Nursing Home, county jail, and in the offices of the sheriff, coroner, recorder, assessor, clerk, chief judge, executive and state’s attorney.

In German beer halls and beer gardens, drinks are served in huge liter glasses (called ein Mass). Men’s rooms often come with vomitoriums.
