IKEA investigates store’s roof fire By Laura Katauskas Bugle Staff @BugleNewspapers sweditor@buglenewspapers.com

IKEA store officials are still investigating what caused a solar panel to catch fire at its Bolingbrook location Saturday, May 12. The store, located at 750 E. Boughton Road, was evacuated for a short period of time

Saturday evening after a fire broke out on the roof. Fire officials initial reports said the fire was possibly caused by a solar panel. No injuries were reported. The first floor of the store was reopened two hours later. As of Sunday morning the second floor was partially re-opened. IKEA is seen as a leader in promoting sustainability and solar energy,

recently completing one of Illinois’ largest solar roofs on its Joliet distribution plant. Its Bolingbrook store was one of the first businesses to install a solar roof array years ago. IKEA actually has gone as far as selling solar panels for residential use; offering a range of solar systems to be installed on homes.

Police officers to stake out nearly 300 Dunkin’ Donuts On May 18 area police officers again taking to rooftops to raise funds for Illinois Special Olympics For the 16th year in a row, law enforcement officers from throughout the state will rise to the occasion and support Special Olympics Illinois atop nearly 300 Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops on Friday, May 18, beginning at 5 a.m. until noon. Officers hope to top last year’s donation total of more than $700,000 from 272 rooftops as they go to new heights to raise awareness and donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Illinois. Special Olympics athletes and their families and representatives from Chicago’s major sports teams are among the special guests who will join police officers and show their support. In honor of the Special Olympics athletes and law enforcement participating in the rooftop event, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate $15,000 to the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run. In addition, each guest who visits a Cop on a Rooftop location that day and makes a donation to the Torch Run will receive a free

dough, signature sauces and more than 30 toppings, for one flat price. The company reports that ‘Spreading MODness’ is at the heart and soul of the company, emphasizing its mission to put its employees first, by offering above-industry pay and benefits to hiring people with special needs – including people in need of a second chance. “The ethos of MOD is deeply rooted in acceptance, opportunity and development resulting a uniquely strong spirit and culture of doing good throughout the company,” said Paul Yadgir, spokesperson for the company.

The company was recently recognized as the number one midsized restaurant chain in the US in the October 2017 Fishbowl Buzz Brands Report, named as the most loved pizza brand by Foodable Network in its May 2017 Most Loved Brands Report, has been ranked as America’s fastest growing chain restaurant by Technomic, earned a spot on the Inc.500 list, and was recognized by Fortune as one of the “20 Best Workplaces in Retail,” a “Best Workplace for Women,” a “Best Workplace for Millennials,” and a “Best Workplace for Diversity.”

Other items, such as Torch Run T-shirts and raffle tickets, will be sold for various donation amounts. Additional activities will vary by Dunkin’ Donuts location. Dunkin’ Donuts also has created a special glazed red and white donut ring depicting Special Olympics Illinois colors. The donut, called “The Champion,” will be available at Dunkin’ Donuts locations in Chicago and suburbs May 18. Detective Robbie Peterson of the West Chicago Police Department says “Cop on a Rooftop is important because it puts the athletes of Special Olympics in the forefront that day across the state of Illinois and gives us, law enforcement officers, an opportunity to interact with our community in a positive manner. My involvement with Special Olym-

pics is truly an honor and another chance to uphold the oath I took when I was hired....to protect and serve.” Special Olympics Athlete Becky Cavanagh of Clarendon Hills adds,” Eating donuts is my favorite part of Cop on a Rooftop. Then I like talking to Detective Robbie and all the nice people who donate.” Local police departments will be at the following Dunkin’ Donuts: • 245 South Bolingbrook Drive Bolingbrook • 1724 N Plainfield Rd Crest Hill • 522 Ogden Ave Downers Grove • 1200 75th St Downers Grove • 1103 Maple Ave Lisle • 1069 E 9th St Lockport • 239 S Weber Rd Romeoville • 649 N Independence Blvd Romeoville • 1920 87th St Woodridge • 2401 W. 75th St Woodridge

Looking to build upon the idea of a farmer’s market concept, the village of Romeoville is creating a new outdoor marketplace in Uptown Square. The Romeoville Open Air Market (ROAM) will operate from 11 am to 7 pm every Wednesday during the summer (except July 4) and will debut June 6. The begin date was originally slated for May 23, but was pushed back to allow for more vendors to sign up. Park and recreation officials say they are excited about the endeavor and are encouraging those interested in becoming a vendor to contact the village. What is considered Romeoville’s “downtown” area, Uptown Square, will offer the space in front of the Edward Hospital Athletic and Event Center for any kind of vendor to set up shop in an outdoor marketplace similar to that of a farmer’s market. “Farmers markets have become wildly popular,” pointed out Mayor John Noak, “so we decided to create our own ver-

sion and open it up to non-food vendors as well.” Uptown Square already features car shows in the summer and contains the newly constructed buildings housing Fat Ricky’s, Franconi’s Italian Grocer, Romeoville Dental, Subway, Mity Nails, T-Mobile, and BMO Harris Bank. The summer schedule is expected to allow the community to come out and do a little shopping in the warm weather and offer a unique opportunity for the village. Applications are now being accepted for vendors, so be sure your favorite business gets their submission in. Applications can be downloaded at romeoville. org. The 10 foot by 17 foot spaces equate to one parking stall. Electrical access is available.

Street work to begin in Bolingbrook Extensive $3.4M resurfacing project set for variety of roads By Laura Katauskas Bugle Staff @BugleNewspapers sweditor@buglenewspapers.com

In one of the largest maintenance programs for Bolingbrook, more than $3.4 million will be spent on resurfacing roads throughout the village. According to the Public Works Department a regimented process is conducted to determine which streets will undergo repair. Engineers drive through town on a yearly basis, ranking streets on a level from 0 to 100; those with more than a 50 rating are marked for resurfacing. This year marks the most extensive resurfacing program the village has seen in years. Work will begin with curb repair and after the completion of the curb work the contractor will begin the asphalt surface removal and replacement operations. Street parking will not be allowed during street removal and replacement operations. No parking signs will be posted the day before work is to begin. “It will be a little bit of an inconvienence, but we all love it when it is done,” said Mayor Roger Claar. The following streets are to be included in the resurfacing program:

• • • •

Welcome to the breakfast, lunch hive Bee Brothers restaurant opens in Romeoville By Laura Katauskas Bugle Staff @BugleNewspapers sweditor@buglenewspapers.com

A new breakfast and lunch place is open for business. Bee Brothers, located at 472 N. Weber Road, just off 135th street, is officially open for business. The restaurant is expected to serve breakfast standards, but with a few different, unique dishes. Hence its name, the restaurant will serve freshly-made honey biscuits and have a bee-like theme, associating its interior with the col-

ors of the honey producers. The owners say the goal is to use the freshest ingredients possible in every dish. The menu includes breakfast like omelets, skillets, and benedicts as well as burgers, wraps and paninis and will be open everyday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. A family restaurant serving breakfast and lunch, Bee Brothers will be the first foray into the restaurant business for the young ownership group, who also run El Ranchito Supermarket in Joliet. Vacant for more than four years, the former site of Applebee’s will now be home to this new family restaurant. Applebee’s closed in June 2013 after filing for bankruptcy and closing eight suburban locations in the same time period.

Great Migration brought more than 500,000 to Illinois Victory Bell can still remember the night when he boarded the Illinois Central Railroad BY CHUCK SWEENY OF THE ROCKFORD REGISTER STAR Victory Bell can still remember the night when he boarded the Illinois Central Railroad’s City of New Orleans in Durant, Mississippi, bound for Chicago, then changing trains and ending up in Rockford. It was 1945, at the height of the Jim Crow apartheid in Dixie that purposely kept blacks poor with few rights. Bell, his mother and siblings were headed north to join his father, who had already moved north to get a factory job. “We had been sharecroppers,” the 83-year old Bell remembers working near Durant, 60 miles north of Jackson. The family had eked out a living, but opportunities for advancement just were not there for black folks. “I remember it was in the middle of the night when we boarded the train. We had to sit in the black section. When we got to Illinois, the conductor said we could sit anywhere we liked on the train,” Bell said, “and we no longer had to say ‘sir ‘or ‘ma’am’ to white people, which was new to us.” His uncle and father had come to Rockford in 1943 and 1944 to get jobs that paid better than sharecropping. “The machine tool businesses were very aggressive in hiring at that time, and people were able to come to Illinois and get jobs at various machine companies and make a decent salary,” Bell said. Illinois’ manufacturing industries were working around the clock to turn out planes, tanks, guns and bullets for the armed forces during World War II. The state’s manufacturers continued to boom after the war. Bell is a living embodiment of The Great Migration, the movement from 1916 to 1970 of 6 million to 7 million black Americans from the states of the old Confederacy to the North. More than 500,000 came to Illinois.

They were fleeing legal oppression. They were looking for better lives for their families, and for the rights to vote, to participate in their government, to serve on juries — in other words, to exercise all their rights as U.S. citizens. Yes, these freedoms had been won in the Civil War, but when Reconstruction ended in 1877 and the U.S. Army withdrew from its occupation of the former rebel states, white Democrats reasserted their total control and suppression of the “freedmen,” as slaves were called after the war. From 1900 through the 1920s, whites erected monuments throughout the South in honor of rebel leaders to demonstrate in granite and metal who was back in charge. The Great Migration’s beginnings also coincided with World War I, when immigration from Europe slowed to a trickle and factories were short of workers. Migration to the North slowed during the Great Depression of the 1930s but picked up again during World War II and in post-war years when highways were better and cars were relatively cheap. Although prejudice was not absent in northern Illinois, it wasn’t codified into state laws that were sometimes enforced by night riders in hoods carrying torches. “When I came to Rockford I was 7 or 8 years old. I started school that same year and I had a great homeroom teacher, Mrs. Burns,” Bell said.

Bell had never been to an integrated school before because they did not exist under the mandated segregation of Mississippi. “Mrs. Burns was the kindest person and made sure I was comfortable in the school. She never showed prejudice. She had a clear understanding of how to help all the kids learn.” Bell learned well. He got a job as a janitor with the Illinois Bell Telephone Co. and advanced to lineman, installer and then supervisor. Active in Democratic Party politics, Bell became Rockford’s first black alderman in 1971, a post he held for more than 30 years before he retired. “We knew there was a different standard for blacks here, but Illinois was not as openly prejudiced. Mississippi was just a terrible, terrible place to be in if you were black,” Bell said. “We were kept out of school until November to pick cotton.” Looking back, Bell said that boarding that train so many years ago “was the best thing we could have ever done.” Chuck Sweeney of the Rockford Register Star can be reached at csweeny@rrstar.com.

WILL COUNTY STATE’S ATTORNEY

Judge hands down sentence to janitor who recorded girls Ryan Thompson, 28, of Joliet, receives five years for 2017 unauthorized video recording of junior high girls while they were in school locker room Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow announces that a former janitor at a Crest Hill junior high school has been sentenced to five years in prison for making secret video recordings of adolescent girls in a locker room

last year. Ryan Thompson, 28, of Joliet, pleaded guilty in January to two counts of Unauthorized Video Recording, a Class 3 Felony that carried a potential penalty ranging from probation to 2-5 years in

prison. Circuit Judge Dave Carlson handed down the maximum sentence, noting that a psycho-sexual evaluation of the defendant conducted after his guilty plea showed he had an above average risk of committing similar offenses in the future. The defendant hid behind the closed door of a utility room and used a cellular telephone to se-

cretly record the female victims between February and March of 2017. The four video recordings did not capture the girls while they were unclothed. State’s Attorney Glasgow praised his prosecutor, Elizabeth Domagalla, with securing a guilty plea and sentence that takes Thompson off the streets. “Assistant State’s Attorney Domagalla resourcefully utilized

an extremely damning psychosexual evaluation to argue that a prison sentence was absolutely necessary in this case, even though the defendant had no criminal record,” State’s Attorney Glasgow said. “Judge Carlson heard her arguments and handed down the maximum sentence, noting that anything less would have deprecated the serious nature of this crime.”

SENIOR

MOMENT Despite rough season, Bolingbrook baseball team gets all-important win on senior day BY DRAKE SKLEBA For the Bugle www.buglenewspapers.com

It was Senior Day 2018, at frigid Bolingbrook High School on Friday May 11, as “Old Man Winter”, returned to Will County. Leading 11-2, with Raider runners on first and third and two outs, in the bottom of the sixth, Raider senior, second baseman Tyler Christy, dug in at the plate. Cristy (2-for-4, 2RBI), ripped a walk-off RBI single to center, scoring Armand Morales (2-for-4, GWR), with the gameending, 10-run rule, run, for a 12-2 Bolingbrook victory. Cristy’s game-winner, set off a huge celebration, among the huge, freezing and vocal Senior Day Raider crowd. “Was lookin for a first-pitch fastball, to hit,” Cristy said. “It felt really, really good, to see the ball go into centerfield. It’s been a real rough season for us. To get this win on our Senior Day, feels

great. The nonconference win over East Aurora (7-16), was only the third victory, for the 3-15 Raiders, but by their post game reaction, you would have thought they had just won the Southwest Suburban Blue.

RAIDERS FROM PAGE 7 Ramirez struck out three and induced five ground balls back to the mound, for outs. “My slider was my best pitch,” Trevino-Ramirez. “I kept them off balance and they pounded my slider into the ground and right back to me. We all played well today. We hit the ball and made all of our plays. It was a great Senior Day victory for us.!” In the bottom of the third, the

Raider bats would explode for seven big runs. Junior Matt Dinkel, got the Raider party started, when he ripped a booming tworun triple to give the Raiders a 2-0 lead. Senior Jake Harvey and Cristy, would have RBI singles in the inning. Senior Jack Chandler. would chip in with a sacfly, to complete the seven-run Raider explosion. “I had to do my job for us in the big third-inning,” Dinkel said. “I hit the ball hard and put

it in play to get the first two runs home. We all just kept the line moving, toward this big win.” With one out in the top of the fifth, Bolingbrook head coach Scott Thyer, took TrevinoRamirez out and brought in fellow senior, Will Sulima. Before heading out to his position in centerfield, Trevino-Ramirez, received a hug on the mound, from his father. “Will (Sulima) has done so much for us here at

Bolingbrook,” Thyer said. “I wanted him, being a senior, to be able to pitch on his Senior Day.” Sulima, would allow one earned run, in his 1 2/3 innings of relief with two strikeouts. Cristy’s walk-off hit ended the five-run sixth inning for “The Brook”. Senior Ethan Tran hammered a two-run double, to give the Raiders a 9-2 lead in the inning. Two more Raider runs were scored on Tomcat miscues,

before Cristy sent us all home for good Friday night. “It was great to get this win on Senior Day,” Than said. “I had to come through for us, with the big two-run double.” “It was great to see all our seniors play today and do well,” Thyer said. “Sebastian (TrevinoRamirez) is a quality pitcher and was outstanding for us today on the mound.

COLUMN >> DAVE SAYS

First, lay a solid financial foundation You’ve laid a solid, financial foundation for your life once you’re debt free DEAR DAVE, When is it okay to have a little fun, and buy things you want, when you’re following the Baby Steps plan? KAITLIN DEAR KAITLIN, The time for a little fun is after you’ve completed the first three Baby Steps. Baby Step 1 is saving $1,000 for a beginner emergency fund. Baby Step 2 is paying off all debt, except for your home. And Baby Step 3 means you go back and add to your emergency fund until you have three to six months of expenses set aside. Once you’re debt-free except for your home — and you have your emergency fund completed — you’ve laid a solid, financial foundation for your life. That’s when you can have a little fun and spend some money on a vacation, new furniture, or

something like that. Children think about their immediate wants and do what feels good. Adults, on the other hand, devise smart, logical plans, and stick to them. I want you to have a great life, but you have to put in some hard work and say “no” to yourself sometimes in order to attain that great life! —DAVE DEAR DAVE, I’ll be receiving my income tax refund soon. It will be

enough to completely pay off my two smallest debts, or get my starter emergency fund of $1,000 for Baby Step 1 in place. What should I do? BRANDY DEAR BRANDY, I love that you’re excited about using your refund to start the Baby Steps, and begin gaining control of your finances. But we call the beginner’s emergency fund Baby Step 1 for a reason. Bad things can happen while you’re working to get out of debt. That’s why I want people to get a little money set aside before they start Baby Step 2, which is the debt snowball. What if the alternator on your car goes out, or your refrigerator dies? Life happens, and things go wrong. When this kind of stuff pops up, and you don’t have any money set aside, you’re likely to quit the plan and wind up going even deeper into debt. I know you want to get out of

debt. I want you to get out of debt, too. But I want you to stick with the plan, and actually get out of debt, instead of falling off the wagon the first time you hit a bump in the road! —DAVE

STATE NEWS

Dept. on Aging celebrates Older Americans Month Department encourages older adults across the state to “Engage at Every Age” May is Older Americans Month in Illinois and the state’s Department on Aging (IDoA) is encouraging its more than 2.5 million older adults to “Engage at Every Age.” That’s the theme of this year’s recognition, which emphasizes the importance of being active and involved, no matter where you are in life. “You are never too old - or too young - to participate in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotion well-being,” said Jean Bohnhoff, Director of IDoA. “I encourage our older adults to take advantage of resources and social programs throughout their communities get out and do something new!” Governor Bruce Rauner has issued a proclamation, recognizing the contributions that older Americans have had on Illinois’ history. “Older Americans are the backbone of our society,” Rauner said.

“They offer the wisdom and guidance that will lead us into the future. Their contributions will have a lasting imprint on Illinois’ history and Older Americans Month provides an opportunity for all of us to highlight those accomplishments.” The IDoA and its network partners will be recognizing some of those accomplishments at its 20th Annual Central Illinois Senior Celebration on May 16th at the Orr Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield. The event features free health screenings, information, exhibitors, prizes and entertainment and is co-hosted by Advanced Healthcare; HSHS St. John’s Hospital; Illinois Secretary of State & State Librarian, Jesse White; Illinois Senior Olympics; Memorial Medical Center; Senior Services of Central Illinois; SIU Healthcare; and Springfield Supportive Living.

Springfield resident Carol Schempp will receive the 2017 Senior Illinoisans Hall of Fame award for her commitment to health and the promotion of well-being for individuals of any physical ability at the event.

ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHCARE & FAMILY SERVICES

State receives approval from Federal Centers State receives approval from Federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) of 1115 Waiver, behavioral health transformation The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services received notice from the Federal government today that plans to better serve Medicaid beneficiaries with substance use disorders and mental health challenges have been approved. The Federal approval authorizes the state to receive federal financial participation (FFP) for the continuum of services to treat addictions to opioids, other substances and other health conditions. The programs and related innovations are being announced today as the Better Care Illinois Behavioral Health Initiative.

“This transformation represents a comprehensive way of serving our clients across the various state agencies and will help Illinois become a leader in integrating physical and behavioral health services for some of our most vulnerable residents,” said Felicia Norwood, Director of the Department of Healthcare and Family Services. “We have an opportunity to transform lives and be better stewards of taxpayer resources.” Federal rules outline how states can spend Medicaid funds. But states can ask for “waivers” of federal Medicaid requirements to pilot or demon-

strate approaches to providing services not typically covered by Medicaid, creating more innovative delivery systems that improve care, increase efficiency and reduce costs. In October 2016, Illinois applied for an 1115 Demonstration Waiver to build a continuum of services for mental health and substance use disorder. The waiver and other state plan changes also help healthcare providers more effectively integrate the physical and behavioral health challenges of their patients and promote more care in the home and community rather than costlier services in institutions.
