Hold the salt

Mild winter weather a mixed blessing for municipal coffers, park districts By Jonathan Samples and Laura Katauskas Staff Reporters

An absence of snow may have discouraged Chicago-area residents hoping for a white Christmas, but many municipalities are rejoicing the lack of effects this year’s mild winter has had on their bottom lines. The first half of the meteorological winter ended Jan. 14, according to the National Weather Service. For the second year in a row, the winter season has started out abnormally warm with below-average snowfall. However, these abnormal conditions have helped villages save money in a number of areas. One of those areas is overtime expense. Snow removal can eat up a large portion of a village’s budget for overtime work, according to Steve May, director of public works for the village of Westmont. With only one significant weather event so far this year, May says part of the budget is still mostly intact. Material use, such as salt application,

is another area where villages have seen savings. Most villages buy salt through Illinois’ Joint Purchasing Program. This second straight year of below-average snowfall and above-average temperatures has allowed villages to stockpile a large surplus of salt, resulting in some savings. Downers Grove and Westmont, which typically use 4,800 and 2,000 tons of salt a year, respectively, are well below those numbers so far this winter season. Downers Grove has used just 226 tons, and Westmont has used only 50 tons. “As of this date, we have mobilized our snow teams only four times,” said Stan Balicki, assistant director of public works for Downers Grove. Although this drastic reduction in salt use does not translate into an apples-toapples savings comparison, villages are placing smaller orders of salt for next year as a result. Jack Knight, deputy village clerk with the village of Woodridge, said the cost of salt has dropped from $75 per ton to $53 per ton. Additionally, Woodridge, like many villages, was able to purchase the minimum of 800 tons through the

Scenes like these from the cleanup of the February 2011 blizzard that paralysed the Midwest have become a distant memory in the wake of unseasonably warm temperatures the past two years.

program. Savings in this area could range between tens of thousands and several hundred thousand, depending on the size of the municipality. However, Knight warns that there is still too much time left in the season to be overly optimistic about potential savings. “We don’t know what winter has in store for us, and we try nit to get in the business of predicting the future,” Knight said. “The biggest difference is we’ve had the opportunity to focus on those other projects.” Like Woodridge, most villages have taken advantage of the mild winter

conditions by getting a jump on spring maintenance. “The mild weather has actually allowed our public works crews to engage in other activities, such as pothole patching, draining problems, equipment repairs,” said Doug Kozlowski, communications director for the village of Downers Grove. Without any meaningful cold or snow so far this winter, it’s not just unusual, but record-breaking.The first day of the 201213 winter with a sub-freezing high was See SNOW NO, page 2

SNOW NO Continued from page 1 Jan. 1, which ties the record for the latest first sub-freezing high on record in Chicago. The Chicago area also set a new record for the most number of consecutive days without a sub-freezing high temperature at 310 days, though that streak ended Dec. 31. The NWS reports that by looking at the number of consecutive days without a snow depth measured of at least 1 inch, can tell the story of just how unusual it is for Chicago to go this long without the ground being covered.Through Jan. 17, it has been 326 days since Chicago has officially had an inch of snow on the ground, making this the longest stretch of its kind on

record in Chicago. The previous streak of 313 days without an inch of snow was set in 1940. This lack of snow over the past two years has forced area-park districts to adjust their plans accordingly. Brandi Beckley, public information supervisor for the Downers Grove Park District, said some programming has been affected. “The last few years of mild winters have caused us to stop planning programs during the winter that require snow or ice,” she said. Like the village, however, the Park District’s operations staff has been able to take advantage of the mild conditions. Geoff Penman,director of parks operations and maintenance, said the mild temperatures in November and December allowed the staff to begin lateseason sod and turf repairs on

News athletic fields.Typically this work would not have been completed until spring. Penman also noted that the lack of snow reduced the need for snow removal. And although people interested in sledding and skiing are bummed, Penman said there has been better access to the parks for those interested in other types of outdoor activities.

Drought Continues The lack of snow isn’t just bringing down winter sport aficionados. Jim Allsopp, meteorologist at the Romeoville NWS office, confirms that such a mild winter can lead to drought-like conditions come spring. “Last year, we had a drought in the summer; water levels are already low in Lake Michigan and the lack of snowfall isn’t helping,” said Allsopp. “We need some precipitation. And actually, snow is a bit better for the ground. Snow soaks into the ground, melting at a slower rate than say a rainfall that can run off. We don’t realize it that much in the winter, but we need the snow to replenish for the summer.” Allsopp said the area is well below the normal average, about 14 to 15 inches of snow, and despite a possible dusting predicted for Jan. 24 and 25, chances for a big snow are minimal. “All season, we have just missed large snowfalls like they’ve seen in Madison (Wis.) and downstate,” said Allsopp. “The overall weather pattern has seen a Pacific flow, from West to East, keeping a wind pattern that has been milder to the area and to the central U.S.We have not seen a persistent pattern of cold air as they have in Alaska, and the real cold that other parts of the world like Asia are experiencing.”

Downers Grove names new deputy police chief

Lisle Mayor Broda gives state of the village address

Police Chief Robert Porter has announced the appointment of William Budds as Deputy Chief of Operations for the Downers Grove Police Department. “Deputy Chief Budds is a highly respected veteran police officer who possesses a great deal of knowledge and experience. I have no doubt that he will do a great job in serving as Deputy Chief of Police,” Porter said. Budds was hired as a patrol officer in 1988 and since that time he has served in a variety of positions within the department including juvenile officer, patrol sergeant, lieutenant of investigations, FBI terrorism liaison officer, and deputy emergency manager. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Lewis University and was selected to attend the U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center in Washington D.C.

Lisle Mayor Joe Broda delivered the annual State of the Village address Jan. 17 during a Chamber luncheon held at the Hilton Lisle. Speaking to a crowd of more than one hundred people, Broda reviewed the municipal highlights of 2012. The theme of the address was Rising to Meet the Challenge. Multiple new developments have transformed vacant land into productive use. Broda referenced DuPage Medical Group’s new 100,000-squarefoot state-of-the-art cancer and medical facility now open on the Interstate 88 Corporate Corridor. DuPage Medical Group also leased an additional 55,000 square feet on Ogden Avenue and will employ a total of 610 people, making it one of Lisle’s larger businesses. Broda also referenced Arboretum Landmark, a residential development adjacent to the DuPage Medical Group location, which will feature 310 upscale apartments with attractive amenities. Construction on the new 185,000 square feet Universal Technical Institute Midwest Campus is also underway. Arbor Trails, one of the largest new residential developments in the area, will soon break ground on a site that has been owned by Meijer for more than 13 years. Broda was pleased with the village’s low debt ($5.8 million versus an $87 million debt

limit) and high bond rating of Aa2 by Moody’s. To navigate the current economic climate, the village has used volunteers and grants to extend its budget and continually seeks ways to operate more efficiently. Broda was especially pleased about recent changes made at the Lisle Police Department, which allows the village to share local emergency service resources while a new Community Service Unit will handle nonemergency calls. During the year, the village has focused on expanding its communications.A quarterly coffee with the Village Board enables the community to connect with local officials more conveniently. Village related information is now included in the new Neighbors of Lisle publication, which is sent to the community bi-monthly. The village also expanded its use of social media and is encouraging people to “shop local” in Lisle. Sustainability continues to be important for Lisle. Electrical aggregation provides residents with a source of sustainable energy and an estimated cost savings of $300 per year. New larger carts encourage residential recycling. Lisle electronics recycling events have diverted 182,000 pounds of material from landfills. See SOTV, page 4

SOTV Continued from page 2 Broda was pleased that awardwinning PrairieWalk Pond continues to attract people into Downtown Lisle. An increasing number of groups are touring the pond to learn about sustainability, enjoying the site’s amenities and visiting Downtown Lisle shops and restaurants. The village received a number of awards and accolades during 2012 in areas such as quality of life, financial reporting, public works projects and sustainability. Broda was pleased independent sources acknowledged the quality focus the village strives to achieve. Broda voiced concern about the continued challenging economic conditions and the uncertainty of revenue streams such as sales and other state-administered taxes. He was encouraged by recent interest in village-owned downtown property targeted for redevelopment. He would like to begin implementation of the Ogden Avenue Master Plan, however, that is dependent on financial resources. Finally, Broda announced the winners of the 2012 Community

Fox whole-heartedly thanked the Auxiliary for their dedication to Good Samaritan Hospital. “Your friendship, support and volunteer work is so important to us,” Fox said. “We couldn’t do these things without your support.” In addition to funding, the hospital Auxilion volunteered more than 80,500 hours in 2012 in every area of the hospital – from checking in patients for surgery, greeting families at the front desk,delivering newspapers

Wreaths Across America: Let’s do this for our veterans The Christmas trees are stripped and taken down, the outside lights are back in the attic (except for that guy down the block) and the extra pounds gained during the holiday parties hang from us like so much stale fruitcake. So now is a great time to think about … next Christmas. We ran a story in December about a program called “Wreaths Across America.” It’s a national program where supporters try their best to make sure every veteran buried at national and state cemeteries are decorated with a fresh, green wreath with a red ribbon at Christmastime. That includes the men

and women who sacrificed their lives who are buried at Abraham Lincoln Cemetery in Elwood. Several years ago, Debbie Smothers, co-founder of Operation Care Package, was excited to get involved with the program. She and others had been supporting men and women in the service overseas by sending them care packages each month; more on holidays. She knows how difficult it can be to rally support for a cause, even one as noble as remembering those who protect our freedom. But even she was surprised the first time she attended the Wreaths Across

America program at Abraham Lincoln Cemetery several years ago. She expected a massive turnout, more like you would see there on Memorial Day.What she found was about 30 people with 40 wreaths, only some 30,000 short of the goal of having one for every veteran’s grave. So Smothers decided she would be the local organizer for Wreaths Across America. Last year, she and other supporters were able to collect enough for 4,700 wreaths, still far short, but in the right direction. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, ROTC members helped place them properly on the graves, ribbons up. And they were out there

even though it was pouring that day … buckets.They knew it was a small price to pay considering the price the people under them paid. Speaking of small price, the cost of these wreaths is 15 bucks each. You donate the money, Debbie orders the wreaths, and you can even tell her who it’s for and where you would like it placed. Or you can go to the ceremony in December and place it yourself. Or you can sponsor wreath for someone you don’t even know who gave their life for you. And you don’t have to wait until November. You can put in your order(s) now. You can

keep adding on throughout the year. If you are a member of a community service organization, think about making this one of your projects for the year … and next. I told Debbie I would help her double the number of wreaths this year, and keep doubling it until each grave has a wreath.

THE BUGLE JANUARY 23, 2013

H o ro s c o p e s Couch potatoes need to be buttered up. Accept an invitation or get out with the crowd. Physical exercise, whether for work or for pleasure, will make your life a bit brighter this week.

Conquer envy by concentrating on contentment. The happiest people in the world don’t necessarily have it all; they just make the best of what they have. Count your blessings in the upcoming week.

Make team work a priority. Soothe ruffled feathers and persuade others to cooperate in work-intensive enterprises. Emphasis is on friendly flirtation and smooth talking salesmanship in the week to come.

Don’t get discouraged in the week ahead if you have not reached your goals. If, for instance, you’ve gained weight, remember it took more than one day to gain it - and you’ll need more than one day to lose it.

Life doesn’t come with a remote control. You have to get up and change it yourself. It is tempting to rest on your laurels in the week ahead, but you will accomplish much more if you get up and get at it.

Call the shots. You can only build muscles by using them, so build up a business, career or store of knowledge in the week ahead. By using selfdiscipline and organizational skills, you can reach your goals.

Getting ahead in life is like riding a bicycle. To remain balanced, you have to keep moving. In the week to come, you might find that a mate or partner offers a sterling example of focused ambition.

You possess the leadership abilities to make a positive difference this week. Inspiring orator Winston Churchill said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

It is not enough to forgive others. You must learn to forgive yourself first. It is quite possible that you will be able to find permanent relief from at least one old trouble in the coming week.

Supercharge your organizational abilities. In the week ahead, your street smarts get a boost and you will have ample opportunities to show them off. Be sure to set up a tight schedule and prioritize.

If you search, the answers will be found. Get advice or information from an expert in the field for best results. Repetitive tasks may add up to large achievements in the week ahead.

You can use a yardstick to measure ambitions and success, but you can’t measure generosity or sincerity. In the week ahead, you can power up your creativity without losing sight of compassion and sympathy.

McInerney’s free throw sinks Marian By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

In police jargon, a 5150 can mean “a crazy one on the loose.” So, by that definition, the 51-50 score in Benet’s upset win over Marian Catholic Thursday was a fitting conclusion to a crazy game. The game between the two top teams in the East Suburban Catholic Conference featured several lead changes, three blood-related uniform changes and a random-seen play in the final seconds. After Benet and junior center Sean O’Mara controlled the first half, the Spartans tried all they could to take O’Mara out of the game in the second half and they did relatively well. However, Benet teammate Pat McInerney stepped up and tallied 11 of the Redwings’ 13 third quarter points. “We got a lead in the third quarter and then we just seesawed back and forth after that,” he said. In the fourth quarter, things got crazy for Benet. While sharpshooter Eddie Eshoo was just returning from the locker room, where he went to switch jerseys because he had blood on his, McInerney took an elbow to the face, sending him to the trainer with a bloodied nose. “The team really held their own when I came out,” he said. “We really could have lost the momentum then, but the team really did a great job holding true.” While he was still being attended to, O’Mara was sent off the floor with some of McInerney’s blood on him. “I think we have some tough kids and they just toughed See SINKS, page 14

Pirates get off to fast start, take down Mustangs By Mike Sandrolini Sports Reporter

State-ranked Proviso East turned Downers South’s Pack the Place Night Saturday into show time en route to an 80-55 West Suburban Gold victory. The Pirates, ranked third in Class 4A in the latest Associated Press poll, stormed out to a 21-2 first-quarter lead behind two Paris Lee-to-Branden Jenkins alley-oop dunks. Proviso led 24-8 at quarter’s end and were ahead 33-23 at intermission. The resilient Mustangs, however, whittled Proviso’s lead to seven points, 41-34, in the third quarter with a little razzledazzle of their own as 6-foot-8 Robert Mara took an alley-oop feed from Jordan Cannon that brought the crowd to its feet. Danny Spinuzza’s free throw at 3:22 of the third period made it a six-point contest, 41-35, but the Pirates quickly delivered the knockout blow, going on a 9-0 run that helped balloon their lead to 50-35. Proviso East (14-3, 6-0) had five players reach double figures. Jenkins, who tied teammate Sterling Brown for game scoring honors with 16 points, netted 14 of his total in the first half. Jevon Carter finished with 14, while Paris McCullum—a transfer from St. Patrick High School—

contributed 12 and Kalin Fisher 10. “They’re a good team,” said Downers South coach Jay Baum. “They’re one of the top four or five in the state. We give them credit. We played a great game last weekend (a 69-44 victory over York at the Downers North Shootout Jan. 12) and we knew it was going to require a situation where we had to be at our best for 32 minutes. “We knew they were going to get some spurts but there were too many of them.” The Mustangs (9-7,4-2) crawled out of their first-quarter hole by scoring nine straight points to start the second quarter. Kevin Hall’s basket capped the run, enabling DGS to pull within 2417. The Pirates didn’t score their first bucket of the quarter until midway through. “We never give up,” Baum said. “At Downers South we play hard, we play good defense. I don’t know how good defense translates to 80 points but that’s at least what we’re trying to do. I’m proud of the kids. They (Proviso) made the good plays and we made some bad plays. When you add it up that’s your final score. We’ll do better next time we play them.” Mara led the Mustangs in See MUSTANGS, page 14

Cougars rally past Redwings in MCDonald’s Shootout By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

When the Benet girls basketball team held a 14 point lead over Vernon Hills in the second quarter at 24-10, coach Peter Paul liked the position his team was in but also was not surprised when the lead began to slip. “We knew they would come back,” Paul said. “We knew they are that tall and that deep.” Unfortunately for Paul, he was right, as Vernon Hills came all the way back to defeat the Redwings 70-63 at the McDonald’s Shootout Monday, Jan. 21 at Willowbrook High School. The Redwings opened up a fast lead on Vernon Hills, leading 20-10 after one quarter. Then, after building the lead to 14, the Cougars turned the page on Benet in the second quarter, outscoring them 20-11 in the frame, holding Benet to a slight 31-30 lead at intermission. “Give credit where it is due, they really took it to us,” Paul said.“We are a younger team and I think some of our shots were not the best we could get. When we shoot the ball well, we are

Christen Prasse scored 21 points in Benet’s 70-63 loss to Vernon Hills Monday.

successful and when we don’t, we are going to struggle.” As Benet (13-8) cooled off in the second frame, Vernon Hills’ Sidney Smith began to heat up. She carried that over after the break, scoring 20 points in the game and hitting all five of her three-point shots. The Cougars were also able to pack the ball into Mary BennettSwanson in the paint, where she had a distinctive size advantage over Benet. “They are a good team and they are big and we are kind of tiny,” Paul said. “We wanted to pressure them because we felt if it was a half-court game it would go their way. Every time (BennettSwanson) got it down low, she was deadly.And free throws, they were 23-of-26 and we were five of nine.” Despite the size advantage, Benet still managed to only get outrebounded 35-28. “I thought we did a nice job rebounding,” Paul said. “We had one possession where we had four or five rebounds.” What Paul wishes the Redwings See REDWINGS, page 14

SINKS Continued from page 11 through it,” said Benet coach Gene Heidkamp. “They have been through many difficult situations this year already. Our kids did a nice job keeping us in the game when they were out.This was a team win, I know three guys had most of the scoring, but the contributions of the other players really meant something. “I was really worried that we would be without some of our main kids, but they fought hard to get back on the floor.” O’Mara would return first, then McInerney. Counting Eshoo, Benet had three players on the floor at the end of the game in numbers different that when they started. It was an Eshoo three-pointer that put Benet ahead by four points with less than a minute to play in the game. It looked to be a safe margin until Marian’s star junior guard Tyler Ulis hit a three-pointer and

was fouled with 22 seconds left to play. He connected on the free throw and knotted the game at 50-50. “When he hit that and-one three, we could have folded, but we didn’t,” McInerney said.“I am really proud of our guys.” McInerney again came up big for Benet, as he took the final jumper and was fouled with 1.8 seconds left. He hit the first free throw, securing the win. “I had a one dribble pull up and I felt him behind me, so I pulled up,” he said. “I am glad he fouled be because I am not sure if it would have gone in.” O’Mara added 19 points and nine rebounds for the Redwings (16-2, 2-1 ESCC), including six in the opening stanza to get Benet going and eight straight in the fourth quarter. O’Mara said having a balanced attack offensively is something the Redwings has been able to use this season. “You have to pick your poison with us. I have been playing with him (McInerney) for three years now and he is great to play with,” O’Mara said. Despite the balanced offense, Benet still knows there are no style points when it comes to their wins. “The last two years, most of

MUSTANGS Continued from page 12 both scoring and rebounds with 12 points and eight boards, respectively. Cannon and Scott McNellis each had 11 points. “Do I think they’re 25 points better than us?” Baum asked rhetorically. “Absolutely not. I thought we were going to win the game, quite honestly, and put that in the paper.

REDWINGS Continued from page 13 had done better is using their smaller size and speed to their advantage. “We had to pressure them a little more and turn them over a little more,” he said.“We certainly got enough shots. If we could have pressured them a little more I think it could have come out the other way. I think all in all, we battled hard.” The outcome withstanding,

the wins have been won any way we can,” McInerney said. “But, we will take them, a win is a win. I can’t even count on one hand the number of 10 point wins we have had. We play a lot of close

games.” O’Mara said the Redwings have no problem playing a halfcourt game. “Our half-court offense is phenomenal,” he said.“Especially

when we are playing teams like (Marian Catholic). They get frustrated being slowed down. It is always better to have an ugly win over a pretty loss.”

“Give credit to them. They played very well. Their defense is relentless and they executed on offense. Give credit where it’s due, but we can do better and we will.” Proviso East assistant Cedric McCollough, subbing for head coach Donnie Boyce who missed the game because of the flu, said the Proviso coaching staff emphasizes matching the intensity of their opponents every time out. “Every game is tough because

they (opponents) got Proviso East,” McCollough said. “They’re going to be ready and pumped to play against you so they’re going to come out and play hard, and if we come out there lackadaisical then we’re in trouble. “Every night, someone is looking to beat us. We’ve got a bull’s eye (on our back) and if someone were to beat us in the conference, it’s like confetti coming down for them; it’s like a championship (for them).”

The Mustangs face off with two WSG teams this week on the road. They visited Hinsdale South Tuesday night and will be at Addison Trail on Friday. DGS defeated the Hornets in the teams’ first meeting, 63-57 on Dec. 7, and knocked off AT, 63-46, on Nov. 30. For the Addison Trail game, Baum said, “We beat them the first time and they have some good shooters. We’ll just take it one game at a time.”

Benet senior Christen Prasse enjoyed playing in the shootout. “We were really excited to be here,” she said. “We have never played Vernon Hills and they have a different style. We really liked playing here, it was fun.” For the game, Benet connected on 24-of-72 shots, 10-of-25 from behind the arc. The Cougars were 21-33 shooting, hitting five of seven triples. “Certainly, we had enough shots,” Paul said. “We are young, and I don’t want that to be an excuse, but sometimes they don’t

take the right shot.” Benet starts only one senior, Prasse, who paced team with 21 points. Sophomore Emily Eshoo tallied 19, while fellow sophomore Emily Schramek scored 15. Prasse knows that she can trust the young players. “We feed off each other’s momentum,” she said. “We are more than halfway through the season and I don’t see them as young.” While she is leaving after this season, Prasse knows she is not leaving the cupboard dry.

“Next year and the season after, I expect a lot out of them,” she said. “They are getting a lot of experience and are learning. I think the other teams are going to expect a lot out of them.” The young players have said that while they are learning, they want to have a successful season to send their senior leader off on a high note and Prasse appreciates that. “They respect me because I respect them, I don’t play like I am better than them,” Prasse said.

Hawks hand Evanston first CSL defeat By Mike Sandrolini Sports Reporter

Maine South’s defense effectively slowed down Evanston throughout most its showdown with the CSL Southleading Wildkits last Friday, but the Hawks needed one more stop in the game’s closing seconds. And they got it. After Maine South turned the ball over with 30 seconds to go, the Wildkits—who trailed 39-38— had a final opportunity to win it. However, an Evanston player lost control of the ball in the paint, and Hawks forward Hailey Schoneman alertly dove to the floor to gain control with 1.4 seconds left. Maine South ran out the clock and preserved the 39-38 win, handing the Wildkits their first league loss in the process. Schoneman, though, limped to the bench immediately after making the play, and Maine South trainers were busy working on her left knee. “I haven’t talked to the trainer yet,” said Maine South coach Mark Smith when asked about the extent of the 6-foot junior’s injury.“It didn’t look good when she came over (to the bench). She’s a pretty tough kid. She had a brace on it (the knee) and I’m not sure exactly what the previous injury was.” The Hawks, who trail the Wildkits in the CSL South standings by just one game (Evanston is 6-1, Maine South is 5-2), held what appeared to be a comfortable 39-34 lead with under 1:30 to play after Jacqui Grant fed Schoneman underneath for a layup. Going back door for layups worked effectively on a handful of occasions throughout the evening for the Hawks, noted senior guard Regan Carmichael— one of three Maine South players who scored 11 points. “Evanston’s a really, really aggressive team,” Carmichael said, “and if you can use their aggression in your favor, that’s what we tried to do. We tried to burn them a little on the back door.” But four straight Evanston

points—the final two Sierra Clayborn’s steal and layup with 54 seconds remaining—cut the Hawks’ lead to 39-38. The Hawks (19-2 overall) committed 25 turnovers for the game;17 of those occurred during the first half. Nevertheless, Maine South was able to take a 22-20 halftime lead after Carmichael hit four free throws in the final two minutes. “This was a huge win,” Carmichael said. “This puts us in a really good position (for) our whole season especially with sectional placements coming up and things like that.” Early last month, Evanston (173) torched the Hawks for eight three-pointers while winning handily, 52-34, but the Hawks were prepared this time. A sticky 2-3 zone limited the Wildkits to four treys—all by Clayborn—and Grant held Evanston’s 6-3 Alecia Cooley to just one basket and eight points. “We mainly focused on (stopping) the three point shots,” said Grant, who did a little bit of everything Friday night, scoring 11 points, grabbing nine rebounds, blocking five shots and dishing out four assists. “Even when we played a zone I kind of played a one-on-one on her (Cooley). But it was good competition and it went pretty well.” “I thought we executed our defense much better tonight,” Smith said. “Clayborn hit four threes; she had five at her place, so we weren’t perfect but they went from eight threes to four and that was our goal to keep them at four threes. “Jacqui did a really nice job. We tried to front her (Cooley) in the post but if we can’t get to the front, we don’t overexhaust ourselves. Our weak side did a nice job (helping out on Cooley) when they lobbed it in (to her). We fouled her a couple of times because we had to instead of getting her easy baskets.” Mackenzie Duffy scored seven of her 11 points in the third quarter—a quarter in which the Hawks led 33-27. mike@buglenewspapers.com

Secrets to succeeding at New Year’s resolutions Q. Seems like January is always a good time to evaluate my habits and attempt to set up better goals. I’d like to work on everything from keeping my desk cleaner to not saying snarky things in meetings. Seems by February every year, all my good intentions have faded. How can I actually succeed at keeping my New Year’s resolutions? A. What I tell clients is to start by evaluating whether their goals belong to them or whether their resolutions fall into the category of “things good people should do.” You will never get truly motivated to do what will make other people happy with you. Most human beings are deeply oppositional. If you decide to swear off donuts, you may instead find yourself irrationally making your local donut shop your new hangout. The following tips will help inspire your authentic desire

for change, navigate your oppositional side, and improve your long-term well being: D o n ’ t overwhelm yourself with a long list of goals. Time-travel into 2014 and look at the video of what you have changed. As you watch the video, ask yourself what changes jump out as important to you. Let the 2014 video guide the list of goals you write down. Instead of writing what you will stop — “No donuts!” — write down what you will do instead, such as “Yogurt for breakfast.”You are more likely to implement a “do” than to refrain from a “don’t.” Look at people you admire. What do they do that you do not? What do you imagine is on their

list of New Year’s resolutions? Time-travel to your gravestone. What do you want written on it? Make sure the goals you write down contribute to this gravestone. To be effective, New Year’s resolutions need to be premised on the idea that you are valuable enough to take care of. If you are last on your list, then you’ll always have a long list of goals that you admire as each year ends without any change. Any change requires discomfort, thinking outside the box, and a willingness to admit where you’ll end up if you don’t change. Your work and personal life are a lot like one of those science fiction movies about someone who goes back in time and gets a second chance. Only in your movie, most of your chances are still available. To motivate yourself, ask how much money you’d pay to go back and make better choices on mistakes you’ve already made. Now stop and consider

that you could avoid many future mistakes if you’d just give yourself permission to get in the driver’s seat in your life. Once you start reaping the satisfaction of achieving some of your cherished goals, let yourself enter each day looking for the tiniest changes you could add. Perhaps you take the

stairs not the elevator; perhaps you speak up one more time in a meeting; or perhaps you say no to a waste of time. No single moment will change your life, but each moment is an opening where you can blossom or whither on your vine.What will you choose right now?

THE BUGLE JANUARY 23, 2013

A taste of summer picnic food for midwinter In the depths of winter, it can often feel like summer and its many eating pleasures are a long way off. If you live in a colder climate than my home in Southern California, a glance out the kitchen window might reveal a picnic table covered in snow. Even here, I sometimes feel a little wistful when I see water from LA’s seasonal rainstorms pooling on our patio furniture, while our outdoor grill huddles underneath its weatherproof covering. But then, I remind myself that cooking and serving just the right recipe can have the power to change the way you see the world. If you prepare a spring or summertime favorite, it can seem as if the sun is suddenly shining in your kitchen and dining room, even when it’s cold and damp outside. It always felt that way during my childhood whenever my mother and grandmother made us fried chicken for Sunday dinner in our little cottage in the southern Austrian village of Sankt Viet. Golden-brown, crispy, juicy, and full of flavor,

that simple family-style main course offered proof with every bite that good food can brighten your spirits as wonderfully as rays of sunshine breaking through a cloudy sky. My recipe for Austrian-style fried chicken is fairly easy to prepare, especially because it starts with boneless, skinless chicken pieces you can find in supermarkets everywhere. A simple dipping processturning it first in flour, then egg, and finally in breadcrumbsproduces a coating that adheres well and cooks to a crunchy, golden-brown surface. Speaking of breadcrumbs, take note that the ingredients list gives you the option of using the Japanese breadcrumbs known as panko, which are available more and more in supermarkets today, either in the Asian foods section or where regular breadcrumbs are shelved. These are coarser and drier, yielding the extra-crispy results that many people enjoy in Japanese-style fried foods. Take special care when deepfrying the chicken, using a

deep, heavy pot on your stove’s back burner and a deep-frying thermometer to monitor the temperature; keep children away, and be extra cautious to avoid spattering of the hot oil. Or buy a good quality, relatively inexpensive electric countertop deep-fryer, which removes some of the guesswork with its built-in thermostat and safety features. I hope you enjoy sharing this with your friends and family. (As with all fried chicken, any leftovers are also excellent

cold for lunch the next day.) Put together a fresh green salad to serve alongside it, or maybe your favorite potato salad recipe. You might even want to set the table with your best gingham tablecloth and napkins, to make it seem even more like you’re having a summertime picnic in the middle of winter.

VIENNESE FRIED CHICKEN WITH LEMON-ROSEMARY BUTTER SAUCE Vegetable oil for deep frying 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts and thighs Salt Freshly ground black pepper 2 cups all-purpose flour 3 large eggs, beaten 2 cups dry breadcrumbs or panko (Japanese-style breadcrumbs) 2 lemons, cut into wedges Lemon-Rosemary Butter Sauce (recipe follows) Pour the oil into a heavy, deep pot to a depth of at least 4 inches, or into an automatic electric countertop deep fryer. Heat the oil over high heat until it reaches a temperature of 365

F on a deep-frying thermometer, or set the automatic deepfryer’s thermostat to the same temperature. Meanwhile, cut the chicken into pieces about 2 inches wide and season them evenly all over with salt and pepper. Put the flour in a large, shallow bowl or soup plate, the beaten eggs in another, and the breadcrumbs or panko in a third, side by side. Place a clean platter or tray nearby. Bread the chicken pieces: First, dredge each piece in flour; then, dip it into the egg to coat evenly; and finally, roll it evenly in the breadcrumbs before putting it on the platter.

When the oil is hot, working in batches as necessary to avoid overcrowding the oil, carefully place the breaded chicken pieces one at a time into the pot or deepfryer. Deep-fry the chicken until cooked through and evenly deep golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes, carefully turning the pieces over with a wire skimmer about halfway through. While the chicken is frying, prepare the Lemon-Rosemary Butter Sauce. Transfer the chicken to a tray lined with paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with some salt and squeeze a little lemon over them. Arrange the chicken pieces

on a heated serving platter or individual plates. Pass lemon wedges and the LemonRosemary Butter Sauce on the side.

LEMON-ROSEMARY BUTTER SAUCE Makes about 1/2 cup 4 ounces unsalted butter 1 sprig fresh rosemary 1 lemon, juiced Put the butter and rosemary in a small saucepan. Melt the butter over low heat. Stir in the lemon juice. Pour through a wire-mesh strainer into a warm sauce bowl.
