community development banker; Mike Krucek, a financial advisor and trustee on the Woodridge Police Pension Board; and Ferenc Vandor, an attorney and former mayoral candidate, are all running for the position.

Blackhawks star visits Downers Grove Carcillo signs autographs at local Goodwill store By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

Chicago Blackhawks winger Daniel Carcillo took some time away from his record-setting, first-place team to meet fans and bring attention to Goodwill’ mission. Carcillo came out to the Goodwill Store and Donation Center, 110 Ogden Ave., Downers Grove, Friday, where hundreds of eager fans waited to meet the

hockey star. Char Malkowski, of Westmont, attended the event with her four children, who, like herself, are huge Blackhawks fans. “We found out from our neighbors, so we had to come down,” Malkowski said. Carcillo signed photographs of himself and other memorabilia fans brought in between 4 and 6 p.m. jsamples@buglenewspapers.com

Village Board hopefuls attend candidate forum By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

The Downers Grove Watch Association hosted a forum March 23 for candidates seeking election to the Village Council. Six candidates are vying for three commissioner seats on the council. William Waldack is not seeking re-election; Robert Barnett and Marilyn Schnell are. First-time candidates are David Olsen, Susan Walaszek, Don Jankowski and Greg Hosé. Before candidates were invited to speak at the forum at the Lincoln Center, Bruno Behrend, of ForThe Good of Illinois,addressed the several dozen attendees on the need for greater government transparency and reducing the size of government.

After the 30-minute presentation, each candidate was given five minutes to present his or her opening statements. Audience members were then given the opportunity to pose questions to individual candidates or open them up to the entire field. Barnett, elected in 2009, is seeking a second term on the council. He said during the forum the biggest challenge facing Downers Grove is the state’s economic condition. During his first term as a commissioner, he said he has worked with the Village Council to trim the fat from the budget and reduce dependency on state money. See COMMISSIONERS, page 8

MAYORAL RACE Continued from page 1 [Editor’s note: Only select questions from Wednesday’s forum have been included, as well as edited down for space .The entire forum will be broadcast on Woodridge Community Television Channel 6.The ordering of the candidates is presented in the order they answered the questions during forum.]

The Candidates Cunningham-Picek (Independent) is a 45-year resident of Woodridge, a business development and community banker with 25 years of experience, and a current Village Board trustee with nine years on the job. She was a past president of and board member in the Woodridge Chamber of Commerce. Currently, Cunningham-Picek is president of the Woodridge Rotary and market president at the Bridgeview Bank Group DuPage. Vandor (Independent) moved to Woodridge in 1983. He began his career as an attorney in 1978. He worked with the U.S. Department of Justice in Chicago for six years before going into

private practice. He has had his private practice in immigration law for 27 years. In 1989, he ran for Village Board trustee and in 1997 he ran for mayor. Both attempts were unsuccessful. Keucek (Independent) has been a resident of Woodridge since 2002 and has worked as a financial adviser since 1991. In 2009, he was named the Woodridge Outstanding Citizen of the Year. He has served as a board member on the Woodridge Chamber of Commerce and was the chairman of the board from 2006 to 2008. Currently, he is a trustee on the Woodridge Police Pension Board. Abbot (Independent) has also lived in Woodridge for 10 years and is currently serving in his second year as a Village Board Trustee. He worked for five years as an Illinois assistant attorney general before going into private practice. Abbot is a member on the Our Lady of Peace School Board, volunteer baseball and soccer coach for the Woodridge Park District, and a treasurer for Cub Scout Pack 101.

What are the biggest problems facing Woodridge today? Abbot: The biggest problem that we have is property taxes. Right now, we are in one of the toughest economic times I can remember, and I think government needs to do more

with less. Businesses are doing more with less, individuals and families are doing more with less; they’re all finding ways to tighten their belts. We need to make sure that we’re being smart with people’s money, and we need to lower property taxes. Cunningham-Picek: I think we need to continue the village’s strategic management process, as well as overall prudent fiscal management, in order to address infrastructure, pension reform, and establish other revenue sources to avoid cuts in services that are directly related to quality of life. I’m all for engaging our community, having discussions on what is most important to our community and making the best decisions possible. Vandor: These are tough times, and we need to do everything to reduce our expenses using sensible governance. We need to make sure that any expensive plans and any additional obligations that the village will incur are seriously considered. I agree with everybody else that our top priority is keeping the taxes from escalating. Krucek: One of the biggest issues is the continuing shrinkage of money we’re going to be receiving from the state of Illinois. Motor fuel tax revenue s down; the state just doesn’t have the money to be able to continue to give it back to the village. We’re going to have to figure out ways to replace that revenue or to spend less. We’re going to

have to use technology, be more efficient, and do everything in our power to make sure that we can overcome revenue short falls.

When is it appropriate and to use eminent? The question was in regard to the Village Board’s recent decision to use its eminent domain powers to acquire the Janes Plaza Shopping Center on 83rd Street and Janes Avenue. The Woodridge Park District is looking to develop an Athletic Recreation Center on the site. Krucek: I think that it is an appropriate use if we have not been able to come to terms with the owner of the property, which we have not, and we have a project ready to go, which I fully support in the Athletic Recreation Center. So, in that case, I think it is appropriate. But, it is still something that I would use as a last resort. Negotiations have not gone anywhere, and that corner needs to be developed. Abbot: Historically, eminent domain was meant so that if the state had a highway it wanted to build and there was a farmer that didn’t want to sell, the state could take it for a governmental purpose. I personally have a real problem with the government going to someone and saying, ‘I’m going to take [the property] because I believe I have a better use for it than you.’ The government shouldn’t be in the business of taking personal property from people who don’t want to sell. Cunningham-Picek: I agree that in this circumstance it is appropriate. I spent possibly four years volunteering with our Park District and listening to our resident s, who are asking for this service in our community. And, as it was said earlier, this area needs redevelopment. The neighbors in that area deserve redevelopment, and our community does as well. Vandor: I would question the need for this facility. I would also agree with mister Abbot that the task to authorize and to justify taking somebody else’s property, the state must have a compelling interest. I don’t believe that that exists in this case. I believe that if the owner takes this to court,

it could take years of litigation and hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, which of course would be covered by the residents of Woodridge. For more information on the forum, visit www.dgwl.il.lwvnet. org.

Under what circumstances do you see property taxes increasing, decreasing? Vandor: Unfortunately, it would appear to me that the property taxes are increasing. I realize that there is less money that is going around. Also, the amount of the village tax that comes from our property taxes is really not as high as some other communities. As far as decreasing, unfortunately, I don’t see that is coming in the near future. Krucek: If I’m the mayor, I’d like to see them decrease. We aren’t going to start by looking to save a million dollars; start with just a dollar, and then go from there. There’s always going to be areas that you look at to save money. If you start there and you move forward from that point, I believe that we can have property taxes decreasing rather than increasing. Abbot: Property taxes can be decreased, and that’s what my goal is. For the last two years, on the Village Board, property taxes have gone up and for two years I’ve voted against that. The only way you keep them from going up, the only way you lower them, is to have that be your goal and you work towards it and you accomplish it.You keep spending flat, sales tax revenue is going up, and you can decrease property taxes. Cunningham-Picek: I concur with what’s been said here already. However, good stewards ensure good governments. What I mean by that is it is a very difficult time that we are going through. In terms of sales tax increasing, the impact looking down the road is something that we are going to have to plan for. But, we have always been doing that. We are prudent as a village on our looking at our budget and reviewing that constantly. Hopefully, eventually we can

Village Council approves $3 million roadway project By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

The Downers Grove Village Council on March 19 approved a $3 million contract for roadway improvements in the Concord Square subdivision. The project will include street reconstruction, storm sewer and streetlight replacement, and the installation of traffic calming measures. Nan Newlon, director of public works for the village, said the street reconstruction is necessary because the materials initially used in the project have a poor performance history. When the subdivision was built in the late 1970s,the streets were constructed using a pozzolonic road base. That material has resulted in deteriorating and

COMMISSIONERS Continued from page 1 “In Downers Grove,roughly half of what it takes to run the village today is related to or dependent upon the state of Illinois,” Barnett said. “That’s why those lean efforts and those focuses on cost reduction, cost containment and growth reduction are so critical.” Between 2001 and 2008, Barnett served on Park District Outdoor Pool Advisory Committee,the Grove Foundation and the Downers Grove Liquor Commission. He also is part owner of BarnettBates Corp., a family-owned manufacturing firm in Joliet. He moved to Downers Grove with his wife in 1998. Schnell has served on the Village Council since 1988 and is in her fifth term as a commissioner. She highlighted many of accomplishments of the council in the past four years, which included a partnership with the village of Westmont for 911 dispatch services, the completion of the Belmont Road underpass and necessary infrastructure improvements throughout the village. However, Schnell stressed the need to remain vigilant in achieving cost reduction in the village budget and to attract additional business.

failing pavement. “Reconstruction of the streets in the subdivision will provide a better performing pavement and reduce longterm maintenance costs for the village,” Newlon said at the March 12 meeting. Work in the subdivision will begin this spring and include Bunker Hill Circle, Concord Drive, Camden Road, Camden Court, Camden Place, Ticonderoga Road, Alamance Place, Monmouth Place, and Valley Forge Place. All work is required to be finished no later than Nov. 22. Mayor Martin Tully said the Concord job is a major street construction project and part of the village’s mission to maintain and improve infrastructure improvements.

“We need to work collaborative with other taxing bodies on things that produce like service at reduced costs to our residents,” she said. “We need to create an environment were viable and healthy businesses will thrive, so that we get a different mix of businesses in the village, which will enhance not only our revenues but the quality of life for our residents.” Schnell has worked on the Downers Grove Plan Commission, the Economic Development Commission and was a founding member of the District 58 Education Foundation. She moved to Downers Grove with her husband in 1980. Olsen is a life-long resident of Downers Grove. He outlined three priorities he would focus on if elected commissioner: keeping taxes low and village fees affordable; encouraging greater business development; and committing to community engagement and greater communication are the main focus of his campaign. “It’s important that council members are always listening to residents, their priorities and their issues,” Olsen said. “I’m very committed to continue the engagement that I’ve had in the community. That’s the most important part of this campaign. I’m committed to continue doing that if elected; not just every four

“This is part of our continued commitment to infrastructure improvement in the village,” Tully said.“We saw a lot of them last year, we featured a lot of them in our year-end report and here we are already in early construction season in 2013 and we’re going to see more of these projects moving forward. This is where we put our money where our mouths are in terms of infrastructure improvement.” The contract was awarded to Schaumburg-based A Lamp Concrete Contractors, with a low bid of $3,020,000. In 2012, A Lamp completed a similar project for the village in the Valley View subdivision, which included street reconstruction and water main replacement. jsamples@buglenewspapers.com

years when running for election.” Olsen graduated from the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign with a degree in finance and management. He was the student body president at U of I and currently works in commodities trading as a regulatory adviser for a Chicagobased company. Though she is running for the first time, Walaszek has a long history of community involvement in the village since moving here in 1999. She has served on the Downers Grove Human Services Commission, the Downers Grove Friends of the Library Board and is a member of the Downers Grove Chamber of Commerce. Walaszec said greater economic development, fiscal responsibility, and promotion of and respect for community involvement are three areas she will focus on if elected. “My background, combined with my 20 years in law, human resources, government and business, will help me help you as residents to help grow our economy, promote fiscal responsibility and enhance community involvement,” Walaszek said.“Having worked for and consulted with governments, I understand how governments operate, their needs and their best practices.” Walaszek holds a master of

Addington elected to Illinois Lions Board of Directors The Westmont Lions Club announced that past District Gov. Lion James Addington will be elected to the Board of Directors for the Lions of Illinois Foundation at the District Convention to be held at the Marriott Oak Brook Hills Hotel in Westmont on April 6. The Lions of Illinois Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Lions of Illinois and the 16,000 plus Lions in Illinois, including the Westmont Lions Club. The foundation is responsible for the special camps the Lions run, the Low Vision Screening Program, the Hearing Bus, Diabetes Bus, and several other important eye and hearing related services run by the Lions in Illinois. The Foundation also handles all the eyeglass and hearing aid recycling. Addington is a 42 year member of the Westmont Lions Club and has served in a leadership role

business administration and a master of science in management and organizational behavior from Benedictine University. She owns a human resources compliance consulting company in Downers Grove, is the director of administration for a national health care provider and is an adjunct faculty member at Joliet Junior College. Jankowski agreed that spending cuts are important to the shortterm success of the village, but said the key to economic viability is attracting and retaining businesses. By making economic development an important part of his plan, Jankowski said Downers Grove would be able to continue to provide a high level of service regardless of the state’s financial situation. “I will focus on expanding our tax base to insulate us from the mess in Springfield, so that we can afford top notch infrastructure,” Jankowski said. “I promise to listen to all points of view when making a decision that affects the character of our community.” Jankowski holds a Ph.D. in economics from Purdue University and a bachelor’s of science in business administration from Marquette University. He is employed as a Principal in the Transfer Pricing group for PricewaterhouseCoopers in Chicago. He moved to Downers Grove in 1987.

Hosé said the keys for Downers Grove to maintain its unique character and grow as a village are repairing and maintaining its infrastructure, eliminating governmental inefficiencies and seeking opportunities to work with other governmental agencies. “We have to put aside any political concerns or personality differences and focus on the village and its residents by making our decision based on facts ad comprehensive analysis,” Hosé said. “If we do these things, we can continue to build that solid foundation that Downers Grove has and safeguard all the things that have drawn so many of us to make Downers Grove our home. Hosé is chairman of the village Plan Commission and has served on the Environmental Concerns Commission. He received a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University in political theory and constitutional democracy. He moved to Downers Grove in 2007.

H o ro s c o p e s You won’t need to participate in a prizefight to profit. In the upcoming week, you may find that you are wedged between a rock and hard place whenever you try to make a change. Wait for better timing.

There is a tendency to cling tightly to a past victory and wear it like a badge of accomplishment. By the end of the week, you could learn that putting forth extra efforts may be both advisable and beneficial.

Know where you are. Start the week off by balancing the checkbook because you may need plenty of cash on hand for something unexpected. If you don’t need extra cash this week, you will be all set.

Remain calm in the face of the storm. The week ahead might be a poor time to initiate a major project with a partner or make a commitment. Someone could change their mind or act unpredictably.

Open your heart as well as your mind to new ways of looking at the world during the week ahead. “Your way or the highway” is not a motto that will win you friends or help you attain your objectives.

Put your eye for perfection to good use this week. Organize files, balance checkbooks, straighten out closets, buff the furniture or wax the car. Regular maintenance keeps things running smoothly.

Follow your heart, but don’t forget to take along your head. Relationships entail extra responsibilities and financial matters may need your attention. This week, you may be called upon to do your duty.

It is up to you to decide whether to run your week or let your week run you. You will gain the most by sticking to routines and getting your desk organized. Wait to follow a lead or try something new.

Prove your loyalty. Work at your own steady pace and carefully complete any project requiring dogged precision. You may be attracted to unusual forms of entertainment in the week ahead.

Rule the roost by using rationality. Make sure you have all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed in the week ahead. Fight off an impulse to gamble with your money or argue with a special someone.

One weed doesn’t ruin a flowerbed. Don’t let minor problems or passing disputes destroy your appreciation for the good things in life during the week ahead. Investigate new technologies.

There are some silences that say nothing; however, leave nothing important unsaid. In the upcoming week you might not find a chance to let down your hair, but you have a loyal someone rooting for your success.

O’Mara, McInerney tabbed to first team By Mark Gregroy Sports Reporter

When Ben Moore signed to play for Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown at Southern Methodist University next season, he was not only committing early to secure his future, but to be able to help his Bolingbrook in all facets of the game and not worry about personal stats or who was watching him. On several occasions during the season, Moore consciously took himself out of the team’s offense because opponents were keying on him. He instead focused on being a passer and a rebounder for the Raiders, getting others involved in the game. “I just wanted to get my teammates involved and win games,” Moore said. “I didn’t try to do too much this year, the numbers just came together.” Despite sharing the scoring honors, the 6-foot, 8-inch senior still averaged 16.5 points, 11 rebounds, three blocks, four assists and two steals per game, while shooting more than 63 percent from the field. “There is a not a guy in the state who has a stat line like him,” said Bolingbrook coach Rob Brost. “There are guys who score more than him on average or have more rebounds, but no one puts it all together like he does. He is 6-8 and averages four assists and two steals a game. What he does to affect the game is immeasurable. “That is the sign of a great player, when not only are you a good player, but you make the players around you better and Ben is the epitome of that. He is the best player I have ever coached and it is not close. He just affects the game in so many ways.” For his accomplishments,Moore was also named the 2013 Voyager Media boys basketball Player of the Year. Moore was also named to the second team Illinois Basketball Coaches

Association AllState team and was Honorable M e n t i o n Associated Press Class 4A All-State. “ T h e s e accolades are all very humbling and I am excited to have them all,” Moore said. Moore did not burst on the scene as a freshman sensation like Simeon’s Jabari Parker, instead he all but grew into a great player in front of the fans. Brost said he remembers clearly the day he knew what type of player Moore would be. “We brought him up with eight games or so left in his sophomore year,” Brost said. “And I told him we were not going to bring him up if we weren’t going to play him. I remember vividly that we were playing Joliet Central and it was going into the second quarter and he went out and scored 15 points in the quarter and when walked down at halftime, I told my staff. ‘We have had our best player on the sophomore team this entire year.’ That was when I knew he was ready to be a great player.” Moore said he looks forward to getting even better when he heads to Texas for college. “I just want to get down there and work hard,” Moore said. “I am excited to go learn from Larry Brown. That should be great.” Other players on the first team are:

MORRIS DUNNIGAN The Joliet West senior averaged 17.2 points per game, to go along with 4.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. A four-year varsity player, Dunnigan is the last player to have played for both the combined Joliet Township See ALL-AREA, page 12 Benet’s Sean O’Mara is on the Voyager Media All-Area first team.

ALL-AREA Continued from page 11 program and Joliet West. “Morris Dunnigan is one of the most competitive and talented players I have ever coached,” saidWest coach Luke Yaklich. “His statistics and performance on the court speaks for itself, however, the aspect of Morris’ development I am most proud to have coached is his ability to grow and mature as a student and person over the past four years.  He is a great example of the importance of high school in preparation for post-secondary success.  I am proud of Morris both on and off the court.”

PAT McINERNEY A senior from Benet, the do-it-all point guard averaged 12 points,

11 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game for the Redwings. “Pat was as good of a rebounder for his size as I have seen on the high school level,” Benet coach Gene Heidkamp said. “He had the ability to impact the game on the glass on both ends of the floor. He was also an excellent passer, and helped us as a ballhandler and scorer. He brought a great deal of toughness to our team, and provided excellent leadership. He made us better in every phase of the game. He will be very difficult to replace.”

MATT MOONEY Offensively Notre Dame featured balanced scoring, but when the Dons needed a big basket this season, it could count on Mooney, a two-year starter. The Air Force recruit averaged 17 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game and put on a three-point shooting clinic in the Dons’ final game of 201213, draining three treys during the final 42 seconds of their loss to New Trier in the sectional

Sports semifinals. “The head coach at Air Force and I agree that what you see today is not necessary what you’ll see a year or two years from now,” Notre Dame coach Tom Les said.“He’s still going to mature and get a little wider, a little stronger and maybe a little taller. He’s the one guy who was never afraid to take a big shot. All of our seniors gave up their individual stats and their individuals agendas to make it a team agenda. Matt was one of the leaders of that senior group.”

SEAN O’MARA J u n i o r from Benet tallied 16.5 points, eight rebounds and three assists per game for the sectional finalist. “Sean had an outstanding season for us,” Heidkamp said. “He was a dominant low post player that we relied heavily on to create offense. He not only was our leading scorer, but an outstanding passer as well. He was extremely unselfish, and his ability to draw double teams created scoring opportunities for others. He made his teammates better every time he stepped on the floor. Sean also anchored our interior defense

and provided a presence in the lane, and on the glass.”

Second Team JALEN HEATH Joliet Central senior was team captain and Steelmen MVP. He tallied 16.1 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.1 steals per game, while being named All-SouthWest Suburban Blue and was IBCA Class 3A/4A All-State special mention. “Jalen has been a tremendous asset to our program as a player but more importantly through his leadership,” said Central coach Jeff Corcoran. “Jalen was able to get his teammates to buy into what we wanted to accomplish a program and lead by example.  He will be truly missed as a member of our team and program.”

AARON JORDAN Filling in for the talented senior class from last year, Jordan, a junior, led the team with 15.5 points per game. He also shot 48 percent from the three-point line, making over 50. He was an 80 percent free throw shooter and averaged 1.5 steals per game. “Aaron did some tremendous things for us,” East coach Branden Adkins said. “For only being a sophomore he played as a veteran. He stepped up to hit big and often game winning shots. He often saw opponents’ best defender or a fury of double teams. He learned to play within his teammates and get them the ball as teams concentrated heavily on him.We are excited for the future for Aaron at not only Plainfield East but also beyond.”

NICK NORTON Downers North senior averaged 15.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, while having 36 steals and 23 blocks. He shot 55 percent from the floor. “Nick’s been great for us all

year,” North coach Jim Thomas said. “He can guard the 1-thru-5 and he is very versatile on both ends of the floor. You can throw him in the post and he can play on the perimeter. He handles the ball well. We think very highly of Nick and his teammates do too. He will be tough to replace.”

JEAN PIETRZAK Pietrzak knew going into the 201213 season that he would be the go-to guy for coach Craig E t h e r i d ge ’s Sentinels, and the 6-6 senior was up to the challenge, averaging 17.8 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.5 blocked shots per game. He’s the school’s sixth all-time leading scorer with 1,203 points. Etheridge said the three-year varsity performer and two-year starter “came in his sophomore year and really was a role player, but you could tell early on that Jean was going to be something special. Each year his role on team grew as his ability did.” The unanimous all-I-8 Conference pick will be a wideout on St. Francis University’s football team, but he’s hinted that he might want to play basketball, too.

JOHN SOLARI Solari was the starting tight end on Maine South’s highly successful football team, and he was just as successful on the hardwood as a three-year starter, a three-year team captain and four-year varsity player on coach Tony Lavorato’s Hawks’ basketball team. He’s the winningest Hawk player in history as the team won 84 of the 115 games in which he played. Solari finished with 1,046 career points and 537 career rebounds, and led the team in both scoring (13.1 points per game) and rebounding (6.6) this season. “The football program strives for state championships every year, and he expected the same thing and had great expectations for our program like football,” Lavorato said of Solari, who plans on playing college football. “He See ALL-AREA, page 13

continued to work on his game and that’s what made him a special athlete. He’s finishing over 6-8 and 6-9 kids and that comes from being physical and having confidence in his skills.”

Third Team ROBERT MARA A senior from Downers South, Mara finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds per game and added 80 blocks on defense. “He was a difference maker for us on both ends of the court,” Downers South coach Jay Baum said. “He set two school records with blocked shots;nine9 blocks in one game vs Willowbrook and had 82 for the season which is the record for one season. He earned all-conference,

Despite missing four weeks with a fractured sternum, McCoy topped the 17-11 Niles West in both scoring and rebounding, averaging 13.1 and 5.9, respectively. He actually was a four-year varsity starter, having started as a freshman and sophomore at Loyola Academy before transferring to Niles West for his junior and senior years. “He’s a quality young man,” Niles West head coach Bob Williams said.“He does the right thing in classroom and works to do the right thing all the time. “He’s very versatile. Defensively, there were times when he guarded a point guard and when he guarded a center. He could take it to hoop and score and he could shoot from the outside.”

PRENTISS NIXON Sophomore earned Special M e n t i o n I l l i n o i s Basketball C o a c h e s Association AllState honors, averaging 15pts, four rebounds, three assists and a pair of steals per game. Nixon tallied more than 20 points in eight different games this season. He already holds two high-major scholarship offers from Colorado State and Southern Methodist University. “He is one of the most competitive kids I have ever coached,” Brost said. “He always wants to be the best player on the floor and he works at it as hard as any player I have ever had. He has the mental edge over a lot of players because he believes he is very good, which he is.“

TREVOR STUMPE Stumpe, a sophomore from Plainfield North, averaged 15.6 points per game and four boards per game for the Tigers. He shot

THE BUGLE MARCH 27, 2013 83 percent from the free throw line and made 29 threepointers. “ Tr e vo r, only being a sophomore, is a special player,” North coach Nick D’Forti said. “He brings a different game to our program, one that we haven’t seen since 0809. Trevor is a good player and an even better kid. We look forward to two more years with him as a starter and contributor to our program.”

LOGAN VELAZQEZ Plainfield Central junior totaled 12.3 points and nine rebounds per game for the Wildcats. “Logan is a great example of what a basketball player should be,” Central coach Steve Lamberti said. He gets the game, he wants to be good, he wants his teammates to be good, and he is constantly

doing whatever it takes to make himself and his team better. To average nearly a double-double and be an all-conference/all-area player as a junior is quite an accomplishment.”

Fourth Team JONAH COBLE Joined forces with Health to make a dynamic duo for Joliet Central. He posted 13 points per game this season. “Jonah is an excellent offensive player that will need to carry a big part of the load next year with the loss of Jalen and Eddie (McElrath),” Corcoran said.“He has grown tremendously as an all-around player and we look forward to his leadership as a senior.”

Trojans rally to defeat Mustangs in early clash By Mike Sandrolini Sports Reporter

Downers North’s boys volleyball team had played just one match this young season—a season-opening victory over Naperville Central on March 18—prior to hosting a crosstown duel with Downers South March 19. Meanwhile, this contest just so happened to be the Mustangs’ 2013 opener. Perhaps this year’s showdown between the District 99 rivals appeared on the schedule earlier than both teams ideally would have liked, but the Trojans and Mustangs were nevertheless up for the challenge. A back-andforth match that went three games was finally won by the Trojans, 25-20, 16-25, 27-25. The Mustangs, who jumped out to a 10-2 lead en route to easily winning Game 2, appeared

to have Game 3, and the match, well in hand after taking an 1813 advantage on a kill by senior John Hanek, who compiled 13 kills for the night. DGN slowly chipped away, though, and cut the Mustangs’ lead to one point on three occasions—the latter coming on a tip-kill by senior outside hitter Gilius Blinstrubas (13 kills) that made it 23-22. The Mustangs had the Trojans at game point twice (24-22 and 25-24), but DGN rallied and eventually forced a 25-25 tie—one of nine ties during the game—following a DGS net violation. Trojans senior Anthony Puccini, who recorded a kill that knotted the score at 24-24, provided his team with its first lead since early in the game, 2625, after knocking down another See CLASH, page 15

Puccini said he heard DGN’s fans chanting his nickname, “Pooch, Pooch” towards the end of the deciding game. “We got a lot of support from the bench and a lot of support from the team,” said Puccini, who had eight kills. “We had to let go of mistakes, and once we did that and stayed positive and had an aggressive mind(set), we just pushed on through and took it to them.” Trojans coach Mark Wasik is working with a relatively young squad this spring after losing a number of seniors that helped DGN win 30 games and advance to the sectional semifinals last

The lone member of the Joliet Catholic team to average in double digits, Peter averaged 12.4 points per game. He hit 60 of 157 three pointers on the season, for an impressive 38.2 percent.

Stephens was the first player off the bench and a spot starter throughout the year for Notre Dame, which finished 24-6 and was ranked among the top 10 teams in the Chicago area for most of the season.

He said he was happy to see the team work through mistakes and pull out a victory. “In Game 2 when we were down, I would have liked to see them bounce back a little better than they did, but they didn’t,” he said. “You kind of smile and say, ‘Well, they’re going to have to go through these growing pains.’ But I kind of stayed on them to let go of things and they were able to turn that corner in Game 3.” Hanek and sophomore Will Tischler closed out Game 2 with kills for the Mustangs. Tischler notched seven kills, while junior Tyler Zowaski and senior David DeMarco recorded 12 and nine digs, respectively. Junior setter Jordan Pawlicki piled up 34 assists. “I’m looking for that fight, and I think we showed it tonight,” Downers South coach Kurt

Steuer said. “We worked hard the past two weeks and the boys worked hard in the club season for those five months. This is only the beginning of the season; there’s still a long way to go. To see fight this hard, this quick there’s only good things to come.” The first game, like the third, was tight and featured eight ties. Tischler’s kill it17-17, but three straight Trojan points, capped by a block from junior Tom Sarver, lifted DGN to a lead it would not relinquish. Senior Tyler Saieg, who registered 25 assists for the Trojans, closed out the game with a strategically placed ball just in front of the baseline that was well out reach of DGS players. “I’m still figuring this team out, as they’re still figuring me out,” Wasik said, “and we’re figuring each other out in terms of

Stephens, a 6-3 junior, is getting looks from a handful of Division I schools, including Florida State, Kansas State and Miami of Ohio, which has already offered him a scholarship. “No question that he’s a very talented athlete,” Les said. “He runs and jumps, and is as strong as anybody I’ve coached on the high school level.”

Stoll netted 15.5 points and 9.8 rebounds per contest, and was named to the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association’s Class 2A all-state second team. He’s the school’s No. 3 all-time leading rebounder and ninth on its all-time scoring list. “He’s an absolute quality kid,” Northridge coach Will Rey said. “Secondly, he’s a great leader; not a guy that needed a lot of words, just by action. His work ethic is second to none. He’s one of the best workers I’ve ever coached. He’s got a motor like you can’t believe.” Scott Taylor and Mike Sandrolini contributed

Opening weekend goes as expected Many might think the opening week of the NCAA To u r n a m e n t was full of surprises. Sure, there was a 15 seed in Florida Gulf Coast becoming the first team with that seed in tournament history to make the Sweet 16, There also are three teams seeded 12th or lower in the final 16 (No. 12 Oregon and No. 13 LaSalle), the most in history. Harvard won its first game as a 14 seed and No. 1 seed Gonzaga lost in the round of 32. Sure, those were all “upsets” but for this guy,they weren’t surprising and the whole tournament has gone as planned. First off, Oregon should have been much higher than a 12 seed, so that is no surprise they are still playing. After watching LaSalle courtside, there is no surprise it is still in the tournament. At halftime of the Florida Golf Coast-Georgetown game,I said that the Eagles would be the first 15 seed in the Sweet 16. Georgetown is garbage and either San Diego State or Oklahoma didn’t excite me. I also thought Gonzaga had no business as a No. 1 seed and said that Wichita State would beat it. Also, New Mexico coach Steve Alford’s teams choke in the tournament, so it wasn’t a major surprise to see Harvard beat the Lobos. So, while there were surprises to many, none of which to me really made me all that surprised. Now, if Louisville or Indiana lost, then I would have been surprised, which leads me to my next point. The refs have been bad, and have missed important calls late in games, in each case to favor higher seeded teams. While there was just average officiating the first three days (which would have been the

surprise had it stayed that high), Sunday left plenty to be desired. Ohio State, in front of a highly partisan crowd in Dayton, got the worst call of the tournament in their favor on an Iowa State charge call that would have given the Cyclones a three or four-point lead. After that call it was no surprise that Ohio State would win at the buzzer. In the next game at Dayton, Indiana benefitted from an 18-8 foul advantage to rally past Temple. I didn’t bother getting excited for the upset because I knew one way or another the Hoosiers are going to win. It’s the time where these types of teams fall that is truly exciting and surprising to see.Yes, Georgetown is a prominent team, but they can’t score and have fallen apart in the tournament the past couple years. Then there was the horrible out of bounds call on Illinois against Miami, which helped the Hurricanes hold off the Illini. Now, I’m no Illinois fan, but that was an obvious out of bounds call. Even the Duke-Creighton and Florida-Minnesota games were foul fests in the second half. Finally, the poor quality of play was no surprise. All year the talk has been about the lower quality of games in college basketball. The talent isn’t as strong as it was in the past and all the top players are freshmen and very raw still. That has led to some poor shooting games and just poorly played games overall. That, in turn, has also led to games generally being more competitive, although the quality isn’t as strong. Expect the trends to continue this weekend as my championship pick of Louisville over Indiana remains strong. As far as Voyager Media Madness goes, Romeoville’s Anthony Gladstone and Plainfield’s Brianna Widler are tied for first. Gladstone has Duke over Indiana in the final, while Widler has Lousiville over Miami. Follow Scott @Taylor_Sports

Help people play the game of work with positive attitude Q. Most people in my workplace definitely don’t play well with others. I am so tired of doing all the work to keep people on track. I’d like to let people deal with the consequences of their bad behavior. Where at work does it make sense to help people and where does it make sense to let them just suffer? A. Many of the people I counsel come to me upset at their coworkers’ glaring inability to play well with others. My clients have spent a lot of time mad at other people’s lack of skills. I point out that if you want to enjoy the game of work, you’re much better off helping coworkers play the game well. Otherwise, your enjoyment and effectiveness

will go downhill along with the people around you. The workplace is a lot like tennis. If you don’t help your opponent at least get the ball back over the net some of the time, the game isn’t any fun to play. You want to help people at work when you can see that the game will be over if you don’t. Let’ssayyourcoworker is permanently grumpy. You and he are working on a project. He glares at you while pointing out that you never got the numbers he needed for a report. You could glare back. You could ignore him. You could also say calmly,“Sounds like you wanted something from me but didn’t have a chance to let me know?”

If you can “reframe” a snarky comment, criticism or hostile remark as an attempt to get help, you made your coworker look better than he is. You also gently just trained him to ask for what he needs on the front end rather than blowing up and looking like a jerk on the back end. Most people in their better moments wish they could play well with others. Most people also have spent zero time getting any education, tools or coaching in how to play well. Consider how shocking it is that most of us have had no training in the only skill we all have to use to succeed at work. Consequently, you will always be surrounded by people who actually believe that pouting, ranting or attacking are suitable interpersonal techniques. You

can slam a ball down the throat of anyone you work with in the game of work, but I doubt they will ever volunteer to do anything that helps you. In fact, most people you’ve played with in this way will probably go out of their way to undermine you. The only long-term solution for you to win at work is to make sure other people win when you win. Helping others do well at work is the most selfish strategy you can use and the only one that creates consistent rewards for you. When you don’t want to help others is when they are using you to get their work done. Your best strategy in these circumstances is to offer to ask your boss to reassign work projects.Your coworker will stop dropping the ball on your desk because he or she is about to look bad to your boss.

Salvage title cars can be risky investment Dear Dave, I want to buy an inexpensive car, and I was wondering what you think about s a l v a g e titles. Eric Dear Eric, It’s not impossible to find a d e c e n t salvage car. But I’d take extra precautions to find out exactly why it was salvaged. If it’s a salvage car because it was wrecked, I’d take a look at what kind of wreck caused the damage. Lots of people know how to repair and rebuild cars, so it might end up in better condition than before if you find the right mechanic. On the other hand, I’d probably walk away if the vehicle had been f looded. Some people claim they can

fix waterlogged cars, but that’s a tough job. In most cases water just doesn’t do very nice things to onboard computer systems and

wiring. Regardless, do as much research as you can into the car’s history. See if CARFAX has a record. But if the seller

doesn’t know anything and other searches don’t turn up good information, my advice is to say no. —Dave

If you can coach people around you to keep hitting the ball over the net, you give yourself the chance to win most matches. If people around you can’t keep a volley going, you won’t even get on the court to play.

THE BUGLE MARCH 27, 2013

A SPRINGTIME PASSOVER DISH I feel it is no coincidence that Passover, the holiday celebrating the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery under Pharaoh, falls around the same time as spring’s arrival.After all, Passover observes a miracle of renewal - the triumph of hope and freedom over despair and tyranny - just as the earth all around us starts to wake up and grow again after winter’s cold and darkness. (Of course, the same seasonal connection holds true for another holiday coming a week from Sunday: Easter. And, as you no doubt know, the Last Supper itself was the ritual Passover Seder meal held by Jesus and his disciples.) With those kinds of parallels in mind, it sometimes surprises me that when you ask people what their main course will be at the Passover Seder, the answer is almost always beef - usually braised brisket - or some other hearty cut of red meat. To me, those are more winter than springtime dishes, though I know, of course, they also represent the central and eastern European heritage of so many Jewish Americans. So, with both spring and Passover (and Easter) in mind, let me offer another holiday main course option, my bright, light-tasting, easy-toprepare Pan-Roasted Chicken with Lemon and Whole-Grain Mustard. This recipe features my favorite way to cook whole chickens.

It begins with butterflying the bird - a butcher’s term for cutting out the backbone and then flattening the chicken, to give it a shape fancifully reminiscent of a butterfly. Prepped in this way, the chicken cooks quickly and evenly, with perfectly browned, crispy skin and succulent meat. Ask most butchers to butterfly the chicken for you and they’ll know what you want. Or you can do the job yourself: Working deliberately, use poultry shears to cut along each side of the backbone from neck to tail, removing it. Turn the bird breast-up, spread it open on a sturdy, clean work surface, and flatten it with a firm blow from the heel of your hand. Now, I know that the advantage those old-fashioned, red meat main courses have is that they cook slowly in the oven, while the Seder - a recounting of the Passover story - proceeds. But many families today opt for briefer Seders that dovetail perfectly with this quicker recipe; and you could also brown the chicken, or several of them, in advance, and then complete the cooking in the oven while you conduct your home service. And, unlike a hearty braise, you’ll feel like eating this particular chicken dish, or variations with other seasonings of your choice, over and over again once springtime officially arrives.

PAN-ROASTED CHICKEN WITH LEMON, WHOLE-GRAIN MUSTARD Serves 4 • 1 whole frying chicken, about 4 pounds, butterflied (see instructions on previous page) • 1 sprig fresh Italian parsley, • 2 fresh basil leaves, or 1 small sprig fresh rosemary • Salt • Freshly ground white pepper • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil • 1 cup organic chicken broth • Juice of 2 large lemons (6 to 8 tablespoons) • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into several pieces • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley or finely shredded fresh basil Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Meanwhile, prepare the chicken. From the neck opening, gently ease your fingertips between the skin and the meat to loosen the skin all over the breast, taking care not to tear the skin. Insert the parsley sprig, basil leaves, or rosemary sprig under the skin. Season the chicken generously all over with salt and pepper. Heat an ovenproof skillet large enough to hold the chicken over high heat. Add the olive oil and swirl it in the skillet. As soon as you begin to see slight wisps of smoke, carefully place the chicken skin side down in the skillet. Sear the chicken, undisturbed, while reducing

the heat, little by little, to medium, until the skin has turned golden brown and crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes. With tongs, carefully turn the chicken skin side up. Carefully transfer the skillet to the preheated oven. Roast until the chicken is deep golden brown and the juices run clear when the thickest part of the thigh meat is pierced with a thin skewer, about 15 minutes longer. When the chicken is done, remove it from the skillet with tongs and transfer it to a cutting board. Cover loosely with heavy-duty aluminum foil and leave it to rest while you make the sauce. Pour off all but a thin glaze of fat from the skillet. Return the skillet to high heat, add the chicken broth and lemon juice, stir and scrape with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan deposits, and boil the liquid until it has reduced by half its volume, 3 to 4 minutes.Turn down the heat and whisk in the mustard and butter, stirring briskly with a wire whisk. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper and stir in half of the parsley or basil. To serve, spoon the sauce into the centers of 4 heated serving plates. With a large, sharp knife, cut the chicken into four equal pieces. Place the chicken on the plates, sprinkle with the remaining parsley or basil, and serve immediately.
