Library hosts annual Halloween Party More than 300 kids with their families showed up to enjoy a wide variety of different games, crafts and activities at the White Oak Library BY RYAN OSTRY Bugle Staff @RyanOstry_BR18 rostry@buglenewspapers.com

On Halloween Eve, the White Oak Library in Romeoville hosted its annual Halloween Party get together for family and friends. “This party is one of the most popular parties we have throughout the entire year,” said Jessica Smith, Children’s Services Supervisor. “We spent quite amount of time on the planning and this year we were doing everything all brand new.” Some of the new and improved changes were creating a registration online to get better head counts for crafts and prizes, all new games so nothing was repeated from the previous year, new crafts and a haunted house maze room. A couple of perks for local attendee Esmeralda Martinez and

her daughter, was the fact it was indoors and they had the chance to show off their Halloween spirit. “It’s inside, it’s not cold and the kids get to wear their costumes, which is really cool,” Martinez said. “My daughter is having a lot of fun, I am too actually and we both really enjoyed the memory game.” Throughout the hour-long event, multiple different activates and games were dispersed around the library. Some of the activities and games included were a Haunted House maze, Fling the Spider onto the Web, Bobbing For Apples, Find the Vampire Fang, Fly the Bat into the Cave, Toss the Ball into the Ghost, Toss the Ring Around the Skeleton, Ghost Bowling, Sensory Buckets Werewolf Teeth, Squishy Eyeballs and Hands, Pumpkin Tic-Tac-Toe, Jenga and many more.

Local resident Lindsay Morgan and her son came to the event as matching pumpkins, and the ebullient mom said that she appreciated the library throwing this get together, as this once a year holiday is something her and her son really

love together. “Halloween is special to us because it’s just so much fun and so neat to dress up and the excitement of going out to get candy and see everybody in costumes is really cool as well,” Morgan said.

A new feature involving the haunted house was kids getting the chance to receive a glow in the dark tattoo and glow stick for their memorabilia. Smith went on to add that she wanted this year to be different for the kids and families, and that she wanted her and her staff to have a very successful Halloween get together. “I wanted to motivate everyone to come up with new things this year,” Smith said. “We don’t want to be known for doing the same thing every year, we’ve been increasing our program while trying to get the community excited about everything so it’s definitely something everyone’s excited to see going forward.” With 160 people registered for the event, according to Smith, she totaled more than 300 attendees in total showing up. “It’s something these kids get encouraged about every year and we like that there’s something here for everyone which makes it even better for kids and their families to enjoy,” Smith said.

Allstate Ins. offers helping hand to food bank Allstate gives out helping hand to Northern Illinois Food Bank; Agency owners earn $24K grant to fight hunger BY RYAN OSTRY Bugle Staff @RyanOstry_BR18 rostry@buglenewspapers.com

There are approximately 795 million people in the world that do not have enough food to lead a healthy and active life. That number comes out to around one in nine people not getting the proper care that they need. The Northern Illinois-area Allstate agency owners recently joined Allstate volunteers across seven states to secure a $24,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grant to benefit 10 Feeding America member food banks, including the Northern Illinois

Food Bank which serves the 13 counties in Northern Illinois. Bolingbrook agency owner representative Kristi Bloedorn said that this opportunity was something that she will never forget, because of the many people that were helped. “Allstate really pays it forward from a personal level,” Bloedorn said. “If every one took some of their time to volunteer to a place like this that would make such a different because the donating money and time in order to help others is what it’s all about.” Allstate volunteers collected monetary donations during an online virtual food drive in April to enable Feeding America food

is coming on Thu, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. at Bolingbrook HS. The Symphonic Band and Wind Symphony will perform Patriotic songs to honor Bolingbrook’s veterans, current members of the military and first responders. General admission is $5. Veterans, current military members, first responders, and members of the Bolingbrook HS Band Boosters will be admitted for free.

Meet Addams 6th Grader Karina Choi, Junior Ninja Warrior

It is always a challenge to keep kids away from sweets. When Jane Addams 6th grader Karina Choi was 6 years old, her dad Jimmy thought he had a great idea to keep Karina away from the Kit-Kat bars she loved. He placed a candy bar on the top of a door frame and told Karina she could have the candy if she could reach it. Mr. Choi forgot that he and Karina regularly watched the TV show “American Ninja Warrior” together. She imitated the “jumping spider” by spanning the door opening with her arms and legs, climbed up and grabbed the candy bar. Watch the Video! to learn more about how Karina became a Ninja Warrior. Since then, Karina has trained in the Ninja Warrior disciplines and will appear in American Ninja Warrior Junior on USA Network

bank members to support local families in need. Every $1 donated during the online virtual food drive helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. Replenishing local food banks also allows rapid response during a natural disaster, which can leave community members without shelter, power and access to safe food and water. Bloedorn said that sometimes people take things for granite with what they have, but helping people in need is something that really puts things into perspective. “My excitement level doing this is a 10/10,” Bloedown said. “We go home to our house where our needs are met and we don’t realize what we truly have.” With all of the donations

In all, $136,000 was donated through Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grants. “We apply for a grant, do four hours of personal time with the origination were trying to get the grant with and once we do that, Allstate allows us $1000,” Bloedorn said. “So, every year we all get together and donate our time and resources for this great opportunity.” Bloedorn said this started just a few years back after the idea arising from Chuck Suta to help out

the Northern Illinois Food Bank. “Four years ago [Suda], out of Shaumburg, decided he wanted to get as many agents as possible to all get together to give one big check to the Illinois food bank,” Bloedorn said. Since 2011, Allstate and The Allstate Foundation have contributed more than $2.5 million to Feeding America to support its disaster preparedness and relief programs. Northern Illinois Food Bank is one of thousands of organizations this year to receive Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grants secured by Allstate agency owners and financial specialists for their volunteer efforts.

Illinois sent more than 350K soldiers to Europe during World War I BY TONY REID OF THE HERALD & REVIEW Artie Bennett, a Marine from Clinton, was cut down by a hail of bullets 100 years ago in a far-flung foreign field, giving his life for his country in America’s first global war. A letter home from a fellow soldier said Bennett, 18, had been attacking a machine gun nest as the Marines fought, successfully, to stem a German advance threatening the French capital of Paris in June 1918, the last summer of World War I. The fallen Marine had lingered for an hour before dying, one of the first casualties from Illinois. The letter honoring him, typed by fellow Marine Pvt. John W. Olsen, read: “He passed away quietly, without a complaint, and was laid to rest near where he fell.” Immaculately tended American cemeteries in France, and faded memorials at home, are among the few tangible reminders of the “Great War” that began on July 28, 1914, and ended, after 18 million soldiers and civilians had died on all sides, with an armistice that went into effect at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, 1918. Now, nearing the 100th anniversary of the war’s end, the push is on to recall and honor the men and women of Illinois, and all across America, who suffered and sacrificed for their nation. Congress has created a United States World War I Centennial Commission, which is overseeing commemorations and fundraising for a World War I memorial in Washington, D.C. Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner signed a proclamation announcing the Illinois National Guard and Chicago’s Pritzker Military Museum & Library will lead the effort to ensure the Land of Lincoln remembers its role in the Great War. A World War I Centennial Committee has been drafted to aid in that state mission and it’s chaired by Jeanne Hamacher, who has taught high school history classes. She said the key lesson to learn is that Illinois went to extraordinary efforts to support a war that shaped the world we live in, right up through today. “When I was teaching, I did a lesson where I could link basically every conflict the United States has had (since World War I) back to World War I in some shape or form,” Hamacher said. She said Illinois had helped win the war, and the war changed the world forever.

“Schools need to teach this, we need to remember,” she added. The United States declared war on Germany and its Central Powers allies on April 6, 1917, and Illinois became part of the vast conflict that would mark America’s emergence as a global superpower. The United States sent 4,734,991 soldiers and sailors to Europe and suffered 116,516 deaths, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Records from the Illinois Office of the Adjutant General list more than 351,000 Illinois men who served in the Army, Navy and Marines during World War I, and some 5,000 of them died. One of every 12 enlistees in the Army hailed from Illinois, and each left a mark. The American Legion Post in Clinton is Crang-Bennett Post 103, named for the fallen Marine and also Army Sgt. 1st Class Welby Crang, who lived about a block from Bennett and died in France in 1917 from pneumonia. Ron Devore, 86, is a member of the Post 103 executive board and a former post commander who has fought to keep the memory of the World War I soldiers alive. He said the post was founded in 1919 not just to honor fallen veterans, but to help and lobby for those who returned home alive, if not always in one piece. “Some of these guys had been gassed, their lungs were burned, they had missing limbs and disabilities; they were messed up for life, and they weren’t getting anything from the government,” Devore said. “Veterans knew that, if there was a bunch of them banded together, they could have a voice in Washington, D.C.” Devore’s wife, Marjorie, whose father was a World War I veteran, vividly recalls the returned soldiers’ sense of pride despite all their trials and tribulations. She said that pride had been matched by the patriotic fervor of their communities at home. “My dad always said everybody had supported the war effort,” she said. The civilian push to buoy the troops with maximum support on the home front was extraordinary. Illinois mobilized vast forces of industry, and especially industrialized agriculture, and turned them into an arsenal of democracy that flooded the American war effort with food, war material and cash.

Illinois created the State Council of Defense, the job of which was to persuade, corral and control civilian production, from engineering to seed corn, to fuel the war machine. When the council produced its wrap-up report in 1919, it was suffused with pride at the sheer wartime output from the people of Illinois. It pointed out that the state’s agricultural production for 1918 had been geared to meet the needs of the wartime “national food authorities” and had been the third-largest crop harvest in state history, worth close to $880 million (about $15 billion in today’s dollars). “Notwithstanding the drain upon manpower, the state in 1918 turned out manufactured products valued at $6 billion. ... Of these, $2 billion-worth were on direct war contracts, but virtually all were war contributions, for Illinois factories are not largely given to the production of luxuries or nonessentials,” the council reported. It also lauded the generosity of Illinois citizens, who raised $45 million during the war to support everything from the Red Cross to the YMCA and the Salvation Army. Timothy Kovalcik, associate professor of history at Millikin University, said it’s important to understand the wartime atmosphere gripping Illinois and the entire nation. “Support for the war was at fever pitch and the propaganda was incredibly successful,” Kovalcik said. A state with a significant population of Germanic ancestry (Teutopolis in Effingham County, for example, means “City of the Teutons,” or Germans, and is typical of many towns founded by German settlers) had no trouble raising troops. “The population of German ancestry volunteered at massive rates to show their patriotism,” Kovalcik said. “They wanted to prove they were true Americans.” With troops rushing forward and humming factories full of nose-togrindstone workers who had shunted aside labor grumbles for the greater patriotic good, the State Council of Defense believed it had glimpsed capitalism’s promised land.

Tyler Cushing becomes second Raider to medal at state, placing 10th in Class 3A

BY JEFF DEGRAW For the Bugle www.buglenewspapers.com

PEORIA — The last time a Bolingbrook boy’s cross country runner achieved All-State accolades was 23 years ago. That all changed this past Saturday at the state cross country finals at the famed Detweiller Park course as the Raiders’ Tyler Cushing finished 10th overall and achieved All-State accolades. The last — and only — other Raider to be All-State was David Gonzalez, who achieved the honor three consecutive years from 1993-1995. Cushing, a junior, covered the three-mile course in 14:34 in one of the fastest overall 3A boys races in history. Since the race was split into three classes more than a decade ago, the most sub 15-minute performers in a 3A race was set at the 2010 meet when 43 runners broke the barrier.

PLACE CUSHING TOOK

This year, 45 runners broke that barrier, as the top 25 achieve All-State medals. “I knew the start was a critical part of the race,” Cushing said. “You have to be in position at the first turn because it is to difficult to make up ground if you are behind. I learned that last year and wanted to make sure I had a good start.” Cushing placed 35th as a sophomore and what he learned during his first trip paid off this year. “I got out at the start really well, but I just didn’t feel that great during the race,” Cushing said. “There were so many in the lead group and we were running fast, so there was no time to relax. I’m honored to have finished 10th and make All-State, but we will really analyze this race and see what was right and wrong to improve for next year. I’m still a little shocked, but I’m SEE TEN PAGE 6

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2018 | BUGLENEWSPAPERS.COM TEN FROM PAGE 5 also happy.” In all of the final race previews, Cushing was rarely mentioned as a contender for the title, but once the race got underway, people noticed this runner from Bolingbrook who was in contention for most of the race. What most didn’t know, was that Cushing was finally healthy. After winning the Locktoberfest cross country Invitational at Dellwood Park, Cushing got bronchitis and that is a recipe for disaster for any runner. At the SouthWest Suburban Conference meet, Cushing finished 30 seconds behind the winner, Brett Gardner of Lincoln-Way East and he was second in the Sandburg regional meet to Christian Knowlton of Plainfield South. But, the bronchitis finally went away and Cushing turned the tables on Knowlton at the Marist sectional meet and won the title. It was also the first individual sectional title in school history. “No one knows much about Tyler [Cushing] and that is they way we like it,” Raider coach John Sullivan said on Friday, as they practiced at the course. “Tyler is finally healthy and has look so much better in work-

outs. There is no pressure on him, because there is no hype. Tyler just goes out and races hard, he is very competitive and I know he wants to do well.” Don’t think for a minute that Cushing didn’t know the history of Bolingbrook cross country at the state meet. “My goal coming into the race was to medal, because only one Bolingbrook runner has ever done that and that was David Gonzalez,” Cushing said. “He is one person I would really like to meet. He was the best our school has ever had in the sport and to be mentioned with him as an All-Stater is pretty special.” Cushing was one of three area athletes to achieve state medals in the race, as Gardner placed 14th and Knowlton was 16th. With the cross country season now complete, Cushing will focus on the upcoming track season. He placed 12th in the 3,200 meters a year ago at the state finals. However, when talking about the top distance runners in the state this spring, Cushing’s name will now be mentioned and you can bet, that come next fall, he will be mentioned as a contender for the cross country title.

DAVE SAYS

Strained relationship over borrowed money? DEAR DAVE, I borrowed some money from my parents in January, and it took a few months longer to pay them back than originally planned. Since then, I’ve noticed our relationship seems to be strained. They will sometimes make remarks about money when I’m around, and it’s obvious the things they say are aimed at me. I don’t want things to be like this between us during the holidays. I have taken steps to become more financially responsible, like watching my spending and living on a budget, so how can I address this issue with them? ROBBIE DEAR ROBBIE, I’m sorry you’re going through this, but I hope everyone has learned a valuable lesson. It’s OK to give money sometimes, as long as you’re not enabling irresponsible behavior in the process. But loaning money to or borrowing from friends and relatives will often lead to bruised feelings. If you paid them back, especially if it took longer than expected or agreed upon, there’s not much you can do if they choose to hold a grudge. With some folks, it just takes a little while for those kinds of things to heal. And considering it’s your parents, my guess is they’ll become more and more forgiving with time. Until then, maybe you could look for opportunities during conversations with them to mention your new approach to finances. Something as simple as referring your budget, or getting excited about how much you were able to put into savings from your last paycheck, might get their attention. A few subtle hints that you’re actively working to gain control of your finances might go a long way with your parents.
