Candidates square off during Westmont forum By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

With the April 9 municipal election fast approaching, Westmont residents were given the opportunity to meet the men and women seeking to represent them in several local offices during a candidate forum March 6 at Village Hall. The forum was coordinated by the village of Westmont and moderated by the Elmhurst League of Women Voters. It included candidates for mayor, village clerk,village board trustee, park district board, library board, District 60 school board and

District 201 school board. The main event during Wednesday’s forum was the race for village board trustee. Six candidates are running for three open trustee positions, which are four-year terms. James Addington, Bruce Barker, Harold Barry III, Robert Plowman, Justin Scheid and Michael Uhlir each answered a number of questions prepared by the Elmhurst League of Women Voters after giving brief opening statements. These questions focused on the budget, TIF districts, village communications, and downtown development. However, it was the recent loss of home rule status that was on the minds of many the attendees. “I know that there is a big question that everybody wants us to get to,” said Laura Kratz, LWV member and the forum’s moderator. “Are you in favor of home rule, specifically what solutions do you have to compensate for the significant loss in revenue as a result of

losing home rule?” Scheid said he favors home rule status because of the authority it gives local taxing bodies to increase revenues. With the loss of home rule, he warned that Westmont would have to get creative to address its budget. “Increasing property taxes isn’t going to do much in terms of additional revenue,” Scheid said. “Sales tax revenue is where the village generates

its operating budget. I’d look at opportunities to further expand the sales tax base. I’d increase grants to offer businesses that are generating sales tax revenue the opportunity to come to Westmont and increase our sales tax base.” Plowman also supported Westmont’s home rule status. He said it was frustrating that a 2 percent margin during the referendum vote was what the

determining factor, considering 800 people chose not to answer the question on the ballot. “This tells me that there’s a disconnect,” Plowman said. “Are we not educating the people on home rule, or is it that the people don’t trust their government? I think once people do the research on it, they will see the benefit.” See CANDIDATE, page 4


Village eyes contractor for Washington Street project By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

The Downers Grove Village Council is expected to award a $941,849 contract at its next meeting to an Addison-based company for a number of Washington Street improvements. John Neri Construction is the lowest of four bids for work to be completed on Washington Street in between Burlington and Maple avenues. Fourteen total bids were received on Feb. 14. The closest bids to John Neri Construction came from Swallow Construction ($965,105), S & K Excavating ($1,006,813) and Pirtano Construction ($1,010,109). The Village Council was expected to hear a first reading of the recommendation to award the bid during its March 5 meeting. However, inclement weather caused village officials to cancel the meeting and push the agenda items back. Director

of Communication Doug Kozlowski said most of the items on the March 5 agenda would be moved to the March 12 meeting. The improvements to Washington Street would include the replacement of approximately 1,485 feet of 6-inch and 8-inch watermain;910 linear feet of 12-inch and 15-inch storm sewer, curb and gutter replacement; road resurfacing; asphalt patching; intermittent sidewalk replacement; and curb extensions at the intersection of Washington and Curtiss with crosswalk improvements. Existing sanitary manholes along Washington Street also would also be replaced. John Neri Construction has a history of “satisfactorily completed” work done in Downers Grove, a village memo stated. In 2012, the company was awarded a contract for watermain improvements.


Westmont amends vehicle impound ordinance By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

Westmont residents now have a little extra incentive to stay on the straight and narrow, as a recently amended village ordinance has increased the number of violations that allow police to seize and impound motor vehicles. The Village Board on March 4 unanimously approved an amendment to increase the number of impoundable offences from four to nine. Police Chief Thomas Mulhearn said the decision to amend the ordinance came after Westmont lost its home rule status, forcing the village was forced to review ordinances passed while it was a home rule community. “Deputy Village Attorney Ann Marie Perez looked up this issue for us and determined we could continue this without home rule,” Mulhearn said at the Feb. 28 Board Meeting.“There was a law that was enacted allowing us to do so.” In January 2012, Illinois General Assembly signed into law legislation that gives non-home

rule communities the right to impound vehicles for a number of offenses. The new offenses in Westmont include: using a vehicle in the commission of or in attempt to commit a felony or in violation of the cannabis control act; using a vehicle in the commission of or in the attempt to commit an offense in violation of the Illinois Controlled Substance Act; using a vehicle while soliciting,possessing, or attempting to solicit or possess cannabis or a controlled substance; operation of a vehicle by a person against whom a warrant has been issued; and operating a vehicle to commit any other misdemeanor or felony offense. In addition to these offenses, a car would be subject to impoundment if its owner has a driver’s license, permit, or motor vehicle that is suspended or revoked. This would not apply if the suspension resulted from unpaid parking tickets or emissions test violations. Under the original ordinance, vehicles were subject to seizure and impoundment for driving

under the influence of alcohol, driving while driver’s license is suspended or revoked, driving with no valid license or an expired driver’s license, and driving with no valid driver’s license in conjunction with no proof of liability insurance. “When we did this program, we limited it to four offenses to get the program up and running and make sure it’s working,” Mulhearn said. A person whose vehicle was impounded would be required to pay a $500 to the village in addition to any towing fees. In addition to increasing the number of impoundable offenses, the village also amended its Administrative Hearing System. The amended ordinance requires the village to set a hearing date within 45 days of an impoundment and notify the person of the hearing date within 10 days of the offense. The owner of an impounded vehicle no longer has to request a hearing but will automatically be assigned a hearing date. The vehicle’s owner is not required to attend the hearing.

Uhlir avoided a clear definition of his stance on the issue, choosing to state the importance of trust if voters are given the opportunity to vote on home rule in the future. “If you trust your local government, you’re closer to your local government than you are to your state government, so home rule is very important,” he said. “If you trust them, you vote yes for home rule. If not, you give back the power to the state.” That emphasis on power was what led to Barker’s and Barry’s tacit endorsement for home rule. Barker warned there are instances where abuses to home rule power can happen, but also

Continued from page 2

stressed the impact the revenue cuts from Westmont’s loss of home rule will have on the community. Barry agreed with Barker, and went one step further in his critique of the current board trustees and their “abuse of power” in passing the MultiFamily Licensing Program under home rule. “The landlord ordinance was borderline unconstitutional,” he said. “Today, we would still be a home rule community had we not kicked that bee’s nest. We should have worked with them more, and we would still have those funds today.” As former mayor of Westmont, Addington invoked another former mayor, Frank Bellerive, when answering the question. Addington was the only candidate to outright oppose home rule, and while relating

a conversation he had with Bellerive, his reasoning became clear. “Giving home rule over to six part-time residents of a village the right to do anything they wanted to do, almost without control, is the wrong way to go,” he said. “I took a stand against home rule and advised that I thought that it was not a thing to keep for our community. That’s why I’m here.”

The Rest of the Field A number of offices in the upcoming election are uncontested, and these candidates kicked off Wednesday’s forum. Ronald Gunter is the only candidate for village mayor, Virginia Szymski is unopposed for village clerk and Bob Bernas is the lone candidate for park board.

Jason Fichtel, Elaine Carmichael and Amy Porter are uncontested in their candidacies for library board. However, two candidates are vying for a single four-year term on the board: Meghan Pfanestiel and Megan Stern. All four candidates for School Board District 201 are unopposed. Marie Charlton, Joel Price, Mara Notbusch and Matt Johnson will serve four-year terms. Six candidates are running for four open positions on the District 60 School Board. They are Arthur Andersen IV, Pradeep Tekky, Michael Gombosi, Paul Watkiss, Patricia Dieball and Lisa Bishop. Andersen, Tekky and Gombosi were the only candidates to attendWednesday’s forum.

H o ro s c o p e s Two heads are better than one. If there is something to work on or someplace to go, be sure to take along a friend or a special someone. You will achieve twice as much with a partner this week.

People may offer you insincere assurances or promises they have no intention of keeping during the early part of the week, but those close to your heart won’t let you down if you need a helping hand.

For the best results, exert additional effort and make key decisions in the first half of the week. You might not use the best judgment and may rely on luck, but the truth is you are luckier than usual.

As a person born with the sun in Cancer, you are frequently sensitive to the lunar cycles. This week’s new moon in Pisces might ignite a desire for study or travel that shifts your focus for several weeks.

Maintain momentum. You should be able to coast along during the first half of the week. If someone asks for a favor, be wise and grant it, but don’t become greedy and ask for any for yourself.

Crazy cat ladies dine with dotty dog people. You may be thrown into contact with people who possess endearing foibles in the upcoming week. Maintain a respect for those with different lifestyles.

Don’t lose them at the first hello. In the week to come use your powers of attractiveness and charm to make people stand up and take notice. Crucial meetings should be scheduled early in the week.

When one door closes another one is sure to spring open. In the week ahead, rather than letting yourself become depressed about what has been lost, remember to rejoice in whatever has been found.

Please some of the people, not all of the people. Because of boundless optimism, you may bite off more than you can chew and regret it later this week. Wise planning is the key to success.

Stress free is the way to be. In the week to come, find ways to relax through meditation or a quiet walk. Don’t complicate a situation by overreacting if and when things don’t go your way.

Extravagance in thought and deed may be just what you need. During the upcoming week, people may urge you on, and drown out your hesitations just when assurance is needed the most.

When you are standing at the corner of love and infatuation, you must remember that whichever street you take may involve lasting responsibilities. In the week ahead, you must honor your commitments.

Prasse earns first team all-area honors JCA’s Lumpkin player of the year By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Scott Taylor/Bugle Staff

Benet’s Christen Prasse is on the Voyager Media All-Area first team after averaging 16.8 points per game.

When Jasmine Lumpkin decided to leave Montini after her sophomore season where she helped the Broncos win a Class 3A State Championship, she had two directions she could have gone and remained close to home. Lumpkin could have enrolled in public school and joined a Plainfield East team that already had one budding superstar in Faith Suggs and program that seemed on the verge of winning or she could have gone to Joliet Catholic Academy, where the Angels have had competitive teams, but have struggled to compete with the top teams in the tough East Suburban Catholic Conference. While her choice to attend JCA was mainly a family preference to attend a private school, Lumpkin also knew she would be joined on the basketball court by incoming freshman Nicole Ekhomu and she knew she had a chance to start something special. Not since the reign of the Quigley sisters in the early 2000s has the JCA girls team been able to make a name on the state level. This year, they did just that. Lumpkin averaged 17.4 points and 11.6 rebounds a game and helped the Angels to their first regional title since 2006. “It was a great accomplishment to win the regional that had not been won since 2006,” Lumpkin said. “I was just looking to come in there and do whatever I could to make a big impact on the team, whether it was rebounding, scoring or whatever. I wanted to leave a mark this year, but next year we want to finish what we

started as a team. “The Joliet Catholic students are big on getting behind their sports, but not really girls basketball, but they really supported us this year and that was great.” For all that she accomplished this season Lumpkin was named to the Illinois Basketball Association Coaches Association Class 3A/4A First team as well as the Class 3A Associated Press AllState first team. Lumpkin finished second in the voting for the Class 3A AP Player of the Year. Her efforts have also earned her the title of 2013 Voyager Media Player of the Year. “It is good to get the recognition,” Lumpkin said. “I have been working hard, so it is nice to see it pay off, but I can’t just settle for this. I have to keep working so I can keep winning for my team.” JCA coach Ed Schodrof is someone who knows of her selfless attitude on the floor. “She obviously has skills,” Schodrof said. “But she is an extremely hard worker and she leads by example and that is what sets her apart. She is never arrogant and her teammates always want to play with her. She is very humble. She probably has 25 Division-I offers right now, but won’t talk about it unless you ask her.” Lumpkin said she is humbled by all the collegiate offers. “There have been a lot of schools that have entered the mix, so they all wow me,” she said. “I am just looking at every offer as an open door to possibly go there and get better. I am just thinking about all the amazing opportunities in front of me.” See ALL-AREA, page 12



ALL-AREA Continued from page 11 Also on the first team are:

CARLIE CORRIGAN Corrigan, a senior from Plainfield North, totaled 488 points (18.7 per game) and averaged 8.2 rebounds per game for the Tigers. She finished her career with more than 1,200 points.

KIERA CURRIE Romeoville senior scored 502 points (16.2 per game) and averaged 9.3 rebounds. She also had 64 steals and 43 assists and shot 75.3 percent from the foul line. She is headed to GardnerWebb University.

CHRISTEN PRASSE The St. Louis Universitybound senior averaged 16.8 points per game for Benet. She also led the team with 79 assists, averaged 6.1 boards and had 27 blocks. Prasse added 62 steals and hit 37 three-pointers, both second best on the team. “Christen had a great year for us,” Benet coach Peter Paul said. “She’s going to have a great four-year career at St. Louis. She has been a mainstay. I can’t say enough. One of the things I will always remember about her is that all of her friends left (last year to graduation) and we never had to sit down with her, she took the group under her wing

Sports and tried to lead them.”

LIZ REHBERGER Resurrection coach Keith Miniscalco admits it’ll be tough to replace Rehberger, whom he says is a coach’s dream. “In four years of coaching girls basketball, at the guard position she’s one of best shooting guards that I’ve ever had a chance to coach,” said Miniscalco in reference to Rehberger, who averaged 18.5 points per game her senior year and finishes a three-year varsity career with more than 1,000 career points (1,084). Rehberger and the Bandits posted a 19-12 record during the 2012-13 season and advanced to the sectional semifinals. She also was the team’s leader in steals.

Second team AYSIA BUGG A transfer from Oswego East, Bugg emerged as a bona fide scoring threat for Bolingbrook

this season, leading the team with a 16 point-per-game average. The 5-foot, 9-inch junior totaled 399 points, starting 25 consecutive games before an injury held her out of the sectional championship game against Neuqua Valley. She shot 48.1 percent from the field and was 27.8 percent from behind the three-point line.

NIKIA EDOM Former Montini standout made an immediate impact with Plainfield East her senior year.The Murray State recruit averaged 15.7 points and 4.4 rebounds per game. She also contributed 70 steals and 59 assists and made 48 three-pointers.

NICOLE EKOHMU Freshman standout averaged 16.9 points per game in her first season of varsity basketball for Joliet Catholic Academy. She tallied a season-best 38 points in the Angels’ win over Fenwick to go along with 25 points over

Benet and 20 against Peoria Richwoods. “She is a great kid from a great family,” said JCA coach Schodrof. “The sky is the limit and she has unlimited potential. Once she gets a little stronger in the weight room and gets a little more aggressive, she will be hard to stop.”

JACQUI GRANT Grant capped her stellar fouryear varsity career by being name to the Associated Press’ Class 4A first-team All-State squad. “That’s just a huge, huge honor for her individually and for us as a program,” said Maine South coach Mark Smith. The 6-3 Grant, a University of Illinois recruit, helped lead the Hawks to a three-year 80-22 record, four straight regional titles and a third-place finish in the 2011 state finals. She is the secondleading scorer and rebounder in school history with 1,522 points and 819 boards, respectively. See ALL-AREA, page 15








Prep shootout featuring local seniors Sunday By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

For the fifth consecutive season, the basketball season for many seniors in the Voyager Media coverage area officially comes to an end at the Prep Shootout senior all-star game. As in years past, the girls game tips off at 5:30 p.m. and the boys game starts at 7 p.m. Cost for the game is $4 for adults and $2 for students with school ID. This season’s game moves to the University of St. Francis and

ALL-AREA Continued from page 12

FAITH SUGGS A sophomore from Plainfield East, Suggs scored 13.4 points per game and pulled down 5.9 rebounds per game, while making 43 steals.

Third team REGAN CARMICHAEL Carmichael had been a valuable performer off the bench for the Hawks each of the past two seasons, but became a fulltime starter for the first time her senior year and made the most of the opportunity. She was the Hawks’ second-leading scorer, averaging just under 12 points per game, as well as their secondleading rebounder. Carmichael also led the Hawks in steals (66) and assists (118). She’ll be playing Division I basketball next season at St. Louis University.

AMARAH COLEMAN Junior transfer from Neuqua Valley, Coleman averaged 12.7 points and a team best 127 assists (5.08 per game average) this season for Bolingbrook. Coleman showed the ability to score when needed and also lead the Raider offense. One of several returners coming back to help the Raiders next season, Coleman helped Bolingbrook to a sectional title, defeating her old teammates.

SARAH COSTELLO The junior from Downers North tallied 13.3 points and 7.6

will be played in the Sullivan Center, marking the first time the game leaves a high school gym. There are also changes in the roster this year. While the South teams remain the same with Plainfield Central, Plainfield South, Plainfield East, Plainfield South, Minooka, Lockport, Joliet West,Joliet Central,Joliet Catholic Academy and Romeoville, the North team keeps its base of Bolingbrook, Maine South, Maine East, Downers Grove North, Downers Grove South, Benet, Westmont and Notre Dame and

adds Resurrection and Lisle as well as Northridge Prep, which recently joined the Voyager coverage schools. With all these great schools,fans are sure to see great basketball. The girls game features players like Associated Press Class 4A Honorable Mention Nikia Edom from Plainfield East as well as Kamari Jordan, who won the Class 4A three-point shootout and placed second in the IHSA Queen of the Hill. They are joined by top recruits Carlie Corrigan from

Plainfield North, who is heading to Southern Illinois UniversityCarbondale, Kiera Currie, who signed with Gardner-Webb University and Bolingbrook’s Kennedy Cattenhead who is headed to the University of Illinois. On the guys side, talent runs amuck again in 2013. Bolingbrook’s Ben Moore leads the North class, as he is headed to SMU next season to play for legendary basketball coach Larry Brown. He is joined by Westmont do-it-all athlete Jean Pietrzak and

Downers Grove North swingman Nick Norton. On the South side, Joliet West’s Morris Dunnigan provided arguably the state’s top highlight this season, when he dunked over Chicago Curie’s Cliff Alexander at the Pontiac Holiday Tournament and could bring that thunder to the Voyager Shootout. He is joined on the South team by a few sharp shooters in JCA’s Ryan Peter and Plainfield South’s Alonzo Garrett.

We are very excited to have her coming back for another year.”

next two years should be invaluable to us and to her. Her defense will improve and she will continue to be our outside threat.”



Senior leader for the Minooka, the University of St.Francis-bound center averaged a team-best 11.6 points and 6.5 rebounds for the regional champion Indians. She was named to the All-Conference team as well as All Tournament at Oswego Holiday Tournament and Warhawk Thanksgiving Tournament.

Senior from Plainfield North averaged 10.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. O’Boye will be playing at Illinois Wesleyan University next year.

ABBY SMITH A four-year starter for Romeoville, Smith was an allaround player for the Spartans. She finished with 10.9 points and five rebounds per game, while leading the team with 149 assists and 96 steals. Smith is headed to McKendree University. “Abby is the definition of leader, this young lady has been my right hand for the past four years and has been a great influence on how the program has changed,” Carrasco stated.“When she came in four years ago we knew we had a good one and she did not disappoint. Her hard work and dedication will be missed and I know this young lady will be a

Fourth team BERNASIA FOX Fox came out like gangbusters early in the season, sparking the Joliet Central offense to the tune of 13.8 points per game. The 5-foot,6-inch senior also averaged 2.9 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1-2 assists per game prior to tearing her ACL in late December.

ANGELICA OSUSKY The University of St. Francis recruit averaged 10.8 points per game and had 73 assists and 66 steals for regional champs Romeoville. She also led the team with 32 three-pointers. “This young lady stepped up the past two years becoming our main three-point threat, this year she added to her game a phenomenal drive to the basket which helped her scoring average and the team,” Carrasco said.“This girl has put in the time and her hard work has paid off. There is never a play this young lady takes off, in practice or the game, and that attitude will push her to great successes in the future.”

Benet falls to West Aurora in final By Scott Taylor Sports Editor

Leading by two after three quarters Friday, March 8 in the Bolingbrook Sectional final, Benet was one quarter away from a second sectional title in three years. However, despite not allowing a field goal in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Redwings (27-6) fell to No. 4 seed West Aurora 4238. “I thought it was a really hardfought game,” Benet coach Gene Heidkamp said. “Our kids gave it everything they had. It was a struggle for both teams to score down the stretch.They made the plays and they executed down the stretch.” Benet led 29-27 after three and it was a free-throw fest back-andforth in the fourth quarter. The difference was the Blackhawks were making theirs and took the lead for good, 35-33 on three free throws by Jayquan Lee, who was fouled shooting a three-pointer. The first field goal of the fourth quarter came with under two minutes left on a Sean O’Mara basket to make it 36-36 West Aurora. After four more Blackhawk free throws, Eddie Eshoo hit a threepointer with 19.9 seconds left to cut the deficit to 40-38. Lee made one of two free throws on the other end, giving the Redwings a chance to tie, but they threw the ball away. West Aurora was able to clinch the game at the line. “We were trying to get the best shot available,” Heidkamp said about the final play. “We put the ball in (Pat) McIerney’s hands. I thought we would be able to get Sean (O’Mara) off the roll, but it didn’t materialize. Pat threw the ball to the top of the key and it was kind of a scramble from there. They took away what we were looking for.” West Aurora was 15-of-20 from the line in the fourth quarter and 23-for-36 for the game. Benet was 4-for-8 in the fourth quarter and 9-of-19 in the game. The Blackhawks shot 9-of-27 from the floor, while the Redwings were 13-for-30.

The score was tied 5-5 after one quarter, the third straight game Benet held a team to five points the opening period. West Aurora led 17-16 at the half. Benet 6-foot, 9-inch junior O’Mara picked up his fourth foul late in the third quarter on a charging call and that seemed to hurt the Redwings on both sides of the court. “It hurt us quite a bit to have Sean on the bench for a good period of time and it limited his effectiveness,” Heidkamp stated. “It hurt us to have him in foul trouble.” O’Mara finished with 13 points to lead Benet. It was the final game for several Benet seniors, including McInerney, the do-it-all point guard who was a part of a pair of regional championship teams and a member of the sectional champs two years ago. “He’s had a great career,” Heidkamp said. “He’s impacted our program in more ways than just his basketball game. He’s a great leader and a great kid all the way around. He’s hard to replace on the court and in the locker room. He’s had an unbelievable career.” Despite the loss, it was a strong season for Benet, who played one of the toughest schedules in the state. “We won 27 games against a brutal schedule,” Heidkamp said. “We won a regional. We won arguably the most competitive conference in the state. We won some big nonconference games. We played 33 games and only played three teams with losing records. We had 14 opponents win 20 or more games. It would have been nice to finish it off with a sectional title, but you have to give a lot of credit to West Aurora.” *The Redwings withstood a Neuqua Valley rally and were able to come away with a 68-62 double overtime win Thursday, March 7 in a Bolingbrook Sectional semifinal. Benet led 19-5 after the first quarter, but the Wildcats clawed their way back into the game. O’Mara had 26 points and

12 rebounds in the win over Neuqua. Pat McInerney added 18 points and 13 rebounds and Robert Haemmerle scored 15 points, including four key free throws late in regulation.

“The game wasn’t going to be lost because of me,” Haemmerle said. “I just wanted to give forth my best effort. I just did what I could to chip in. I tried not to think about (the pressure on

the free throws) and just worry about my stroke. It felt good out of my hand, and I can’t complain about that.” Follow Scott @Taylor_Sports

Business & Real Estate


How to keep your sanity in a workplace gone crazy Q. Seems to me that a lot of people in my workplace appear to be losing their minds these days. I try hard to find logical connections between what is happening and how people are reacting, but both coworkers and customers seem a little crazy. How can I keep my sanity when everybody around me seems to losing theirs? A. You can keep your sanity by understanding that you may not be able to control what is going on around you but you can definitely control how you react to what is going on around you. Most of our anxiety at work comes from trying to control situations that we actually have no control over. Some of us seem to believe that if we just worry hard enough, the stuff we worry about

will be magically banished. The question you want to ask yourself immediately if your workplace seems crazy is, what do you actually have the power to control? Now make sure you get all the information you can and take all the action you can in areas where you have power. In areas where you don’t have power, ask yourself a different question. The question when you lack influence is, what options do I have if the problems I worry about occur? Brainstorm as many options as you can, and linger long and hard on ways you could turn some of these problems into opportunities.

We all tend to like our status quo because we feel reality is more controllable when it is predictable. Problems can often be gifts in disguise, however, because problems force us to expand our thinking to invent solutions. When you can’t just keep doing the same old thing at work, you’ll be forced to change.As long as you are going through the discomfort of change, you might as well get something good out of it like a cool opportunity. Problems also force us to grow up. For instance, you may have had a hundred confusing conversations with your boss where she tells you you’re not a “team player.”You may have always felt insulted but never actually known what she meant. If you realize the power you have is to ask her to describe on a video

screen what she wants, you might finally get that raise you’ve been eying. Human beings tend to improve, like chunks of coal, when they are put under pressure. Coal turns into diamonds, and human beings turn into resilient and creative adults. Sometimes the same pressure that makes one individual at work brilliant will crack another. You want to watch your coworkers and customers closely for the choices they make when under pressure. Get closer to the people who take responsibility and mature. Create distance from those that get increasingly irrational and selfdestructive.


Last word(s) Q. Is there any one skill set that will guarantee me the ability to land a job in our uncertain economy? A. Yes, the skill set of being able and enthusiastic to learn. People who can learn will also find grateful employers. Daneen Skube, Ph.D., executive coach, trainer, therapist and speaker, also appears as the FOX Channel’s “Workplace Guru” each Monday morning.

begin to grow differently.The abnormal cells can turn into cancer, though it usually takes several years for cancer to develop. It is this reason that pap smears are so important. Pap smears can identify those abnormal cells before they turn into full-blown cancer. Pap smears may find those abnormal cells before they turn cancerous, but what if there was something that prevented the HPV infection in the first place? Enter the HPV vaccine, which provides immunity to some of those HPV viruses.Two vaccines are currently available: one vaccine contains protection against four types of HPV -- type 6 and 11, the causes of most genital warts, see above, and types 16 and 18, which cause most cases of cervical cancer.The other vaccine protects against two types of HPV -- type 16 and 18. It is important to remember that these vaccines contain only two to four types of the virus and there are more than thirty types that can affect the genital tract.The vaccine protects against the most common HPV types that cause genital warts and cervical cancer, but it will not protect against all types.Therefore, it is still possible to get genital

How to make healthful eating fit your daily routine By StatePoint Media

Eating right is essential to keeping your body running at its best. But nutrition advice doesn’t always account for people’s varied lifestyles, health needs and tastes. March, which is National Nutrition Month, is an excellent opportunity to review your diet and make positive, sustainable changes. So what’s the “right” way to eat for you? Experts say it’s not as restrictive as you may think. “There’s sometimes a misperception that eating properly means giving up favorite foods,” says registered dietitian and President of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Ethan A.

Bergman. “But including foods you love in your diet can help you stick to your goals.” As part of the “Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day” campaign, Bergman suggests that those looking to eat a healthy diet, tailor food choices to meet lifestyle, needs and preferences: • Business People: Busy work days can lead to on-the-fly meals. For desktop dining, keep singleserve packages of crackers, fruit, peanut butter, low-sodium soup or canned tuna in your desk. Always on the go? Tuck portable, nonperishable foods in your bag for meals on the run. Try granola bars, peanut butter and crackers, fresh fruit, trail mix or single-serve packages of

whole-grain cereal or crackers. • Athletes: Whether you’re a competitive athlete or just enjoy working out, what you eat affects your performance. Eat a light meal or snack before exercising, such as low-fat yogurt, a banana or cereal with low-fat milk. Before, during and after exercise, drink plenty of water or a sports drink, if you prefer. • Students: For nutritious, budget-friendlysnacking,combine protein and carbohydrates, such as apples and peanut butter, low-fat cheese and whole-grain crackers or hardboiled eggs and fruit. These also double as quick grab-and-go breakfasts. At the cafeteria, salad bars are a great choice -- just go easy on

the high-calorie add-ons. • Families: Family meals allow parents to be role models to ensure kids eat right. And, just because a meal is made quickly doesn’t mean it can’t be nutritious. Keep things simple. Choose ingredients you can use for more than one meal. For example, cook extra grilled chicken for salad or fajitas the next day. Get the kids involved. They can make the salad, set the table or do other simple tasks. • Vegetarians: A vegetarian diet can include just as much variety as one including meat. For example, nutrient-rich beans are a great choice. Enjoy vegetarian chili, a hummus-filled pita sandwich or veggie burger. Many popular

items are or can be vegetarian -pasta primavera, veggie pizza and tofu-vegetable stir-fry. • Meat lovers: Keep your meaty meals heart-healthy by selecting lean cuts and choosing chicken, turkey and fish more often.Avoid deep fried foods. Instead, bake, broil, roast, stew or stir-fry your meals. This month, set yourself up for success. Consider working with a registered dietitian to develop a personalized eating plan.
