Coroner continues to examine human remains By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

The DuPage County Coroner’s office is continuing its analysis of human remains found in wooded area near the 7900 block of Lemont Road in Woodridge last week. DuPage County Corner Richard Jorgenson said the ongoing investigation has not yet determined whether the remains are male or female, cause of death; only that they are human.

“We are just beginning this process and can only confirm that we believe that we have recovered human remains,” Jorgenson said. Examination of the remains began Monday, April 1, after Jorgensen and a deputy coroner responded to the location after being contacted by the Woodridge Police Department. The remains were discovered by two youths who were walking in the area on the afternoon of March 30. Woodridge Police

secured the area and began their investigation soon after. They are being assisted by the DuPage County Coroner, the forensic unit of the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office and the Felony Investigation Assistance Team. Authorities are asking that anyone with information or information, or if they believe the incident is related to a missing person, call Woodridge Police Department nonemergency phone number at 630-719-4740.

The remains were discovered in a wooded area behind Ide’s Grove East Park, 8127 Meadowwood Ave.

Edward, Elmhurst announce health system merger Edward Hospital & Health Services and Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare on Jan. 22 announced plans to merge to become one of the larger integrated health systems in the state. The proposed merger would create a three-hospital health system – Edward, Elmhurst Memorial and Linden Oaks at Edward – with revenues of more than $1 billion and more than 50 locations across a service area of 1.7 million residents. The system would employ nearly 7,600 and have more than 1,680 physicians on staff. Last week, the parent boards of each entity agreed to enter into a Letter of Intent to merge. Before the merger can be finalized,

Edward and Elmhurst Memorial will complete the normal due diligence review process in the coming months. Certain aspects of the proposed merger also are subject to state and federal regulatory review. Once approved, the merger could be completed in mid-2013.The Letter of Intent also provides for Edward President & CEO Pam Davis to be named CEO of the new health system upon completion of the merger. “This merger will strengthen Edward overall. Our Edward Plainfield campus will continue to grow and develop and is already home to more than 100,000 patient visits a year,” Davis said.“As the economy improves and the population grows in the Plainfield

region in the coming years, we will continue to look at opportunities to expand Edward Plainfield including a full-service hospital.” “With this transaction, we can assure residents of our local communities that we will preserve both Edward and Elmhurst Memorial as vital health care resources for years to come,” said Davis.“The delivery of health care is changing rapidly. Hospitals are under tremendous cost pressure, while being asked to take a much more active role in managing the overall health of patients. “Together, Edward and Elmhurst can enhance the quality and cost effectiveness of health care while still maintaining our strong local community focus.”

Darien-Woodridge extinguish multiple fires over weekend Fire fighters from DarienWoodridge were busy last weekend in their area and in surrounding communities. At approximately 6:03 p. m. April 6, an activated fire alarm was received for 2016 Ridge, Woodridge. Upon arrival of the police officers, they reported a smell of something burning, and the call was upgraded for additional assistance. Further investigation narrowed the smell to a unit on the second floor. The door was forced open, and a moderate amount of smoke was noted in the unit. The source of the smoke was coming from the bathroom. The cause of the fire

was determined to have been from combustibles too close to an electric wall heater. No one was injured in the fire and the fire damage to the unit was minor. Later that night, at approximately 11:18 p m., there was a report of a house on fire at 1517 Sequoia Lane, Darien. Upon arrival of the first fire unit, they reported seeing smoke coming from the roofline of the house. While hose lines were being deployed to attack the fire, other companies were opening ceilings to gain access to the attic. Tarps were places over the occupant’s furniture to prevent further damage.

The fire was contained to the furnace room and attic. The fire was under control within 30 minutes, but fire units stayed on the scene for several hours to make sure there were no hidden fires, and to investigate the cause of the fire. The two occupants, who safely escaped, reported a loud lighting strike in the area. No injuries were reported to firefighters or civilians. The homeowners had one cat, and that was found unharmed under a bed after the fire was extinguished. The home sustained a moderate amount of damage, See FIRES, page 4

Westmont’s Climate Action Plan top of mind in 2012 By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

Westmont took a number of steps to promote environmental sustainability in the past year, and those accomplishments were outlined during an annual update April 1 on the village’s Climate Action Plan. Village Manager Ronald Searl recognized both the municipal and community strategies taken to meet the goals outlined in the Climate Action Plan, adopted in 2010. “There are some really nice things we’ve done in the last year or so that I think our residents should know about,” Searl said. One major accomplishment came from the village’s decision to partner with Downers Grove on its electric aggregation program. By partnering together, the two municipalities were able to bid on their electric supply needs in tandem and achieve 40 percent annual savings in the cost of electricity. That effort also allowed Westmont to commit to renewable energy

certificates, which helped the village win achieve a 7 percent reduction in 1990 the Cool Cities Award from the Sierra Club levels of greenhouse gas emission by 2012, and urging the U.S. Congress to establish a earlier this year. “That is a government set up program national emission trading system. Westmont’s Climate Action Plan is to promote the use and generation of geared towards green energy,” Searl assisting in these said of renewable here are some really nice actions, particularly energy certificates. “Just doing that things we’ve done in the last the achievement of alone, we came year or so that I think our sustainable practices within the village. close to achieving a Searl explained that 7 percent reduction residents should know about.” Ronald Searl, Westmont Village the plan breaks these in greenhouse gas Manager efforts down into emissions.” two areas: municipal The Climate Action Plan was put together by a committee strategies and community strategies. “Some of these mirror each other,” Searl of Westmont residents and village staff members as a requirement under the U.S. said.“But in the plan, there is a much more Conference of Mayors’ Climate Protection detailed breakdown under these sub Agreement.

throughout the past year. The village has instituted an anti-idling policy for all municipal vehicles and has worked to reinforce that policy in 2012. Achieving a greater fuel economy in those vehicles has been another goal set by the village. Searl said that all of the village’s truck and utility vehicles now use biodiesel, while all police vehicles have E-85 fuel capacity. In 2012, the village purchased several trucks with diesel exhaust fluid injection, which lowers the amount of Nitrogen Oxide emissions coming from the vehicle. Energy audits on village buildings have helped staff to identify areas where energy efficiency can be achieved. Energy Star furnace and HVAC units were installed at the Water Division, 39 E. Burlington Ave. Additionally, higher rated ballast bulbs have been installed in all of the village’s public works facilities and the fire headquarters. “All of this has been paid through grant funding,” Searl said.

CLIMATE Continued from page 2 Grants from the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation helped fund the projects. Searl also believes that a strong recycling program, as well as a greater emphasis on electronic communications and the use of tablet devices, has helped to significantly reduce the amount of solid waste seen in the village. “We feel like we’re making strides in getting everything converted over electronically,” Searl said.“Internally, we’ve really embraced the use of Google aps technology. We’ve found that to be a great resource saver in

terms of not having to print a lot of paper.” The village also instituted and continued a number of recycling programs and shredding events in 2012. Trustee Bob Scott congratulated village staff and their efforts to meet the Climate Action Plan’s goals. “It’s amazing how much we continue to try and conserve,” Scott said. “It’s amazing how the staff has worked hard on keeping this type of a program of conservation.” He went on to say that despite the disbanding of the Westmont Environmental Improvement Commission, he is pleased the village has been able to continue its commitment to conservation. The WEIC had its final meeting June 23, 2008. jsamples@buglenewspapers.com

Now that he’s home,Alex said they are going to spoil their son. “We love to have him here and be able to take care of him for a little while,” he said.“He left a boy, but he came back a man. I couldn’t be any prouder.” Despite the warm reception, Adam’s stay will be short lived. On April 30, he is returning to Germany, where he’ll be stationed until September. At that time, he’ll be assigned to a unit somewhere in the states. “Until then, I’m trying to go out and see my friends,” he said.“I’m mainly trying to cram in seeing as many people as I can in the next 24 or 25 days that I’m home.” jsamples@buglenewspapers.com

Schools Writers, illustrators assemble for District 58 Author Fest District 58 students will have the chance to hear about the art of storytelling from some of the best in the field during the 2013 Author Fest, set for April 17 through 19. Authors come to Downers Grove from all over the country during the annual event to talk about how they became writers, discuss their craft, answer students’ questions about the writing and/or illustrating process and talk about careers in literature. Visiting authors for 2013 include Julia Durango, James Kennedy, Kate Klise, Kevin Luthardt, Craig Pierce, Aaron Reynolds and Barb Rosenstock. The Fest alternates each year between the north side schools and the south side schools, and this year’s host schools are El Sierra, Fairmount, Indian Trail, Kingsley and Whittier. The LRCs at each participating school, as well as the classroom teachers, immerse students in the works of the visiting author before

The three-day event will wrap up with a book-signing featuring the authors and illustrators at the Downers Grove Public Library on Friday, April 19. This event is open to the public. Books will be available for purchase from Anderson’s Bookshop beginning at 6:30 p.m., and authors will sign from 7 to 8 p.m. Author Festival is sponsored by the Downers Grove Area Council of Parent-Teacher Associations and the PTAs of the participating schools with additional support from the Downers Grove Public Library and Anderson’s Bookshop in Downers Grove. This year’s Fest is being organized by Lara Vazquez, in conjunction with the PTAs of the participating schools, which also provide the funding for the authors’ appearances at their buildings.

H o ro s c o p e s The light that drives you forward is within and can light the way. This week, a faster pace is necessary to deal with a plethora of commitments. The wheels are turning in a direction that leads to your dreams.

Consideration conquers controversy. You will navigate the fast-moving twists and turns of the week ahead more easily if you make it a point of honor to remain cool and considerate of others.

A little encouragement goes a long way. Look for ways to ignite your inspirations in the week ahead. When you are known throughout your community, you can more easily demonstrate integrity.

Ratchet up the rhythm. In the week ahead, get up and at ‘em, since shrinking violets risk being trampled by those in a hurry. If you are tempted to flirt, be sure to flirt with only the best people.

How you perceive the strength of the wind depends on your perspective this week. In front of the wind, you might view the onslaught as overwhelming. If moving with the wind, you might see it as an advantageous force.

Enthusiasms can be contagious. You may stand out as someone’s hero or heroine. Someone can light a fire under your ambitions and provide concrete encouragement in the upcoming week.

Sleepwalkers receive a wakeup call. Your fantasies can give you inspiration, but you could be blind to the drawbacks or oblivious to the obvious. A family situation could be mystifying in the week ahead.

Turn your face to the sun like a sunflower. To grow and gain strength in the upcoming week, focus on what makes you happy. Be cautious of fantasies that thrive under a facade.

The darker the room, the more you appreciate light. A special someone can act as a good sounding board for creative ideas in the week ahead. Use your extra energy wisely, whether to entertain a lover or to find moneymaking ideas.

Not everything important will be revealed at first glance. Take your time about making an important decision in the week ahead. You may learn that the more you resist change, the more things change.

Press the “pause” button. During the week ahead, you may have more than one opportunity to take stock of your financial situation. Enjoy some needed relief from unexpected bills and responsibilities.

A visionary outlook or an artistic flair can be a valuable asset this week. Blend your energy with that of others to create a powerful force that can lead to success. Be open to new viewpoints.

Trojans improved; Mustangs reload By Mike Sandrolini Sports Reporter

The grass outside is beginning to turn green around the Downers North campus, but there are two outside surfaces that don’t need Mother Nature’s help to go green: the all-weather turf on the football field, and the tennis courts just to the north. It was there last week that the host Trojans and Downers South squared off on a sunny, yet chilly afternoon. The Mustangs, a perennial state team qualifier, won the match over DGN, 5-2, and then turned around a couple hours later to play indoors at night versus Lincoln-Way East. DGS also took that match, 5-0. Playing two matches on the same day is nothing new for the Mustangs, coach Pete Freischlag said. They’ve been doubling up like this for the past two years. “The guys like it,” said Freischlag, who’s starting his 29th season as coach. “We have five of those this year where we play a second time (during one day).” While Downers South dominated the match with its crosstown rival, the Trojans are nevertheless an improved team. They’re led by No. 1 doubles team Tristan Burnham and Mantas Kisielius, who advanced to the 2012 state tournament.

DOWNERS NORTH Burnham,a senior,and Kisielius, a junior, started playing together midway through last season, and it’s all been good. “We clicked,” Burnham said. “Going downstate was big for just confidence purposes and match experience. We’ve kind of started off this season a little rusty, but I think we’ve got a lot of potential on our team, and I think Mantas and I can do some

damage downstate.” Burnham and Kisielius lost to Downers South’s No. 1 team of senior Cody Freischlag and freshman Christian San Andres, 6-2, 6-2. But keep in mind that Freischlag is a multiple state qualifier in doubles, and San Andres was one of the top players in his age group in the Philippines before he and his family moved to the United States and settled in Downers Grove last summer. “We’ve been able to beat some of the smaller teams,” Kisielius said, “but (with) some of the bigger teams in our conference or out of conference, we want to try and see if we can go further at state than we did last year.” The Trojans’ No. 2 team of juniors Chandler Downs and Sam Meegan, however, downed DGS freshman Zach Wood and junior Ryan McMillan 3-6, 6-3, (10-3). DGN also got a victory in doubles from its No. 3 squad: senior Louis Buttney and Anthony Depaz.The duo defeated Mustang senior Matt Schlictman and junior Mitch Plys, 4-6, 6-4, (10-7). “Our overall makeup is very solid,” second-year Downers North coach Dana Graczyk said. “They’re very eager. They’re coachable; they want to win. They want to work hard, so I think our outcomes are going to be really great. It’s been a slow start to the season because no one’s hit a lot of balls yet. “It’s good to see this competition because these are teams we’re going to have to beat in order to qualify for state. DGS is who we have to compete against and do well (against).” Sophomore Michael Yong and junior Spencer Schillerstrom will be playing No. 1 and No. 2 singles, respectively, for the Trojans this season.

REOLAD Continued from page 11

DOWNERS SOUTH Cody Freischlag, who’ll be playing tennis next year at Colorado Mesa University, made it downstate for the third time in doubles last spring with the since-graduated Connor Harmon. He’s taken on a role of being a mentor this year to San Andres. “It’s somewhat of a learning experience for him being a freshman and new to it, but he’s got great potential, great talent,” Freischlag said. “I really like the opportunity to mentor him to become a better. I had a mentor my freshman year. Brian Sorich

really helped me, and I’m trying to do the exact same thing for him (San Andres).” San Andres was the No. 1-ranked player in his age group in the Philippines and was on that country’s Junior Davis Cup team. “It’s been really great because Cody’s a really good doubles player,” San Andres said. “I think with his skills and my skills, we can work together well and hopefully reach state.” Freischlag and Wood, meanwhile, have been playing on the USTA circuit, along with senior Jon Artus and sophomore Tony Leto. Leto advanced downstate in singles last year, while Artus was a state qualifier in doubles. “You see a lot of growth since

Sports last year emotionally (from Leto),” Coach Freischlag said. “Last year, as a freshman, expectations were so high he felt more pressure. He seems to be enjoying himself more and taking things in stride more. Certainly, Tony is a very, very talented player.” Leto is considered to be the Mustangs’ No. 1 singles player, but Coach Freischlag indicated that both Artus and his son will see action in singles matches throughout the season. Against Downers North, for example, Artus played Mike Yeng at No. 1 singles and won, 6-4, 6-3. Then, Cody Freischlag manned the No. 1 singles spot against Lincoln-Way East and was a 6-1, 6-1 winner. Meanwhile, Leto and Artus were paired up at No. 1 doubles and recorded a 7-6 (7),

7-6 (1) triumph. In other words, Coach Freischlag has plenty of options at singles and doubles in 2013. “We’ll mix things up just a little bit,” he said. “We play so much that it’s pretty easy to do.” The Mustangs placed 11th as a team at state last season and 10th in 2011. Coach Freischlag, of course, is hoping for a better showing this time around. “If we can continue to get one day better every day, to use a favorite Andre Agassi quote, we could be conference champions, sectional champions, qualify everybody (for state) and we would like to be higher than 10th,” he said.“But there’s a lot of things that have to fall in place for that to happen.” mike@buglenewspapers.com

Being realistic about work load Q. I’m starting to wonder if I have ADD at work. At home I can focus fine, but I get into my office and the demand to multitask makes my brain numb. By lunch I am so overwhelmed I just sit at my desk and stare. What do you tell your executive coaching clients to help them manage the amount of multitasking I have to face every day? A. Everyone at work is wondering if they have ADD these days.The amount of complexity and multitasking that all of us walk into every morning is overwhelming. Consider yourself observant, not an organizational wimp, if you feel numb by noon. Studies point out that the pace of change in many organizations is becoming so fast that it is outstripping many people’s ability to function. Our brains literally do freeze up when change, multitasking and complexity exceed our ability to act on our thinking.

Since there is no evidence that the demand for multitasking will decrease, we all have to know how to simplify our jobs. Start by sitting down and making a list of every item you feel responsible to cover on your job. Now evaluate this list and consider, is it realistic? If your current list of tasks couldn’t be done by Superman, then you’ll need to talk to your boss. Tell her or him that you realize your job performance is suffering because the time needed does not match the time available. Ask him or her to rank your job responsibilities. Now make a revised list based on your boss’s priorities and submit it to your boss. You may be afraid your boss will think you’re a lazy idiot because you are admitting you have to sleep and eat once in awhile.The truth is that employers want results. If you negotiate your job tasks

now, your chance of keeping your job just went up greatly. If you pretend you can get your job done and fail, you’ve just guaranteed a spot on the unemployment line later. Once you have a humansized job again, be aware that job responsibilities tend to multiply like rabbits. Get a good grip on these tasks before they get out of hand by putting the tasks in two categories: tasks that can be done in less than 10 minutes, and everything else. At the beginning of each day, knock off most of your 10-minute jobs.You’ll feel less stressed and more capable when you now tackle your significantly smaller list. Part of why people freeze up at work is the sheer quantity of the work they have to do. When you get rid of numerous mosquito-size jobs first thing in the morning, they can’t suck away your concentration the rest of the day. If, despite all these new tricks, you find yourself numb by noon, lower your expectations for a moment and

breathe. Set aside your usual list and ask yourself what one task you’d like to complete before 5 p.m.Your brain will unfreeze, help you complete that task, and be available for other demands. In many ways we are still cave men and women caught up in a work world our brains were not designed to manage. Use these tools to work with your brain and your focus and productivity will soar.

Smart lighting ideas when remodeling (StatePoint) If you’re building or remodeling your home, as more Americans are doing these days, consider a fresh approach to your lighting both inside and out. “Lighting sets the mood for a space and illuminates daily activities, “says Jeff Dross, trends expert at Kichler, a manufacturer of decorative lighting, landscape lighting and ceiling fans. “A good lighting design will balance form and function for beauty, safety and convenience.” To maximize the appearance and functionality of your rooms and outdoor spaces, there are several things you should know before getting started: • Style: Consider your taste and how your lighting will interact with your décor and architecture. Is your style contemporary, traditional or transitional?

If you have heavily ornamented furniture, wallpaper or window dressings, consider lighting that’s cleaner and simpler for a balanced contrast. “The trend today is cleaner and simpler designs, regardless of your style preference,” says Dross. “Keep it simple.” Finish: Today’s most popular fixtures feature lighter colors like polished nickel or chrome, and textured or distressed finishes such as aged bronze. Layers: Multiple light sources can minimize glare and shadows, while adding depth and dimension, so layer spaces with ambient (overhead), task and accent lighting. Ceiling fans are a favorite source of ambient lighting for a great room or family room. • Functionality: Think about how you plan to use each space you’re

lighting. For example, if your dining room serves more as a homework and hobby station than a formal place to gather, you`ll want to install a maximum amount of light. If you entertain there, be sure to install a dimmer. Take advantage of the experience and expertise of a designer, contractor or lighting professional to help you determine how your lighting can accommodate your daily life. • Dimensions: Pick appropriately sized lighting fixtures for the size of your rooms. A good rule of thumb for chandeliers is to add the two dimensions of your room to arrive at a minimum diameter. So a 12x12 room should have a fixture with a minimum diameter of 24 inches and be no larger than the width of See LIGHTING, page 23

Soundproofing to turn your home into a sanctuary (StatePoint) All around us, life is getting louder. But home should be a place to relax and unwind. Between televisions, cell phones, computers and video games, it’s sometimes hard to find peace and quiet within the walls of your home. Luckily, with a few do-ityourself soundproofing projects, you can reclaim your home as a place of respite no matter what’s going on in the rooms around you. • Fabrics: For a quick fix, think fabric. In addition to complementing the look of a room, soft rugs, carpeting, curtains and tapestries make great sound absorbers. And just a few rugs can spell a lot of disturbance-free foot traffic. • Furniture: Give rooms a unique touch and a powerful sound barrier by placing thickly-upholstered chairs in each corner. Large bookcases against common walls can also help block noise. • Surface texture: Rough surfaces on walls and ceilings, such as sprayed-on texture, a textured paint job or even wallpaper can help reduce sound waves in a noisy room. • Insulation:The simplest,most effective way to soundproof is to reduce airflow between rooms with a high-density stone wool insulation that’s specifically designed for noise reduction. For example, Roxul Safe ‘n’ Sound, for use between interior walls, in ceilings, and between floors, traps sound waves and vibrations in the thousands of interconnected spaces created by its fiber structure. Because it can be cut precisely with a

serrated blade, it can be trimmed for the best possible fit, meaning maximum sound absorption. Installation is easy and will go a long way to reduce sound transmission with the added benefit of improving your home’s fire resistance. And because stone wool insulation is mold resistant and doesn’t slump or settle inside walls over time, it is maintenance free. More information can be found at www.Roxul.com. • Cracks: Sound can burrow through crevices and cracks. Seal cracks around baseboards and in drywall, and block slits around window seals and interior doors. While homes are getting louder, there’s good news -- many sound-proofing techniques have additional benefits, from aesthetic appeal to improved energy efficiency. Take steps today to make your home a more peaceful, comfortable place to live.

outlets and electrical boxes are. This is especially important for new construction or large remodeling jobs. • Sunlight: Natural light plays a large role in the type of lighting you need. Look at where the windows are and how much light they let in. Pay attention to plants or trees that may partially block the sun’s rays.
