t was an emotional scene during Tuesday’s Village Council meeting, as outgoing commissioners Marilyn Schnell and William Waldack said goodbye to friends and colleagues. Schnell and Waldack have served a combined total of 33 years on the council. Schnell lost her most recent run for village commissioner, while Waldack decided in

November not to seek re-election. “We’re going to take a little time out here tonight to thank both Marilyn Schnell and William Waldack for their exceptional service,” Mayor Martin Tully said during the meeting. Schnell was first appointed to the Downers Grove Village Council in 1988, and she had been re-elected six consecutive times until her loss in the April 9 election. “The last 25 years has had its ups

and downs, but I would not change the opportunity that you the residents have given me,” Schnell said. “I love this town and have spent countless hours trying to make it better than when I first took office.” Schnell and her husband Phillip moved to Downers Grove 33 years ago, and they proceeded to raise two children.

Westmont Village Board approves 2013-14 budget By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

The Westmont Village Board unanimously approved the 2013-14 fiscal-year budget, which had to overcome a potential $2.4 million revenue hit as a result of the village losing home-rule status. The vote, which came at the May 6 Village Board meeting, was the outcome of a budget process that started back in November and had to adapt to a variety of new economic conditions. The general fund, which is the major operating fund of the village, is expected to bring in $20,645,242 in revenue and lose $20,641,000 in expenses. “I can honestly say that this has probably been the toughest budget that I’ve ever had to deal with,” Trustee Lee Fleming said.“We are just so glad that we did not have to lose any employees, because that’s the last thing that we wanted to do.” The revenue that will be lost once a .5 percent home-rule sales tax and a 2 cent gas tax are off the books was slightly offset by an estimated revenue increase of $1.1 million as a result of the improved economy, its effects on sales tax and inflationary increases to property taxes, according to Westmont Finance Director Spencer Parker. Additionally,

an increase in fire fees added $234,028 to the budget. Still, Westmont had to find ways to adjust its budget to an estimated $1,086,725 deficit. That meant village officials and staff had to get creative in finding ways to cut from the existing budget and bring in new revenue. A tax on places of eating will have the most significant impact in helping to swing Westmont’s bottom line back into the positive. The 1 percent tax on establishments that prepare and serve food is expected to bring in $510,000 in additional revenue. Trustee Ellen Emery warned that although the tax on restaurants has been budgeted, it still needs to be approved by a Village Board that, as of May 6, is composed of three new trustees and a new mayor. Since most towns surrounding Westmont already have a similar tax, the previous Village Board expected the tax to pass with relative ease. However, Emery reminded her colleagues they were not out of the woods yet. “So that nobody is disillusioned, [the budget] includes a half a million dollars that we don’t yet have a guarantee of getting,” she said of the places See WESTMONT BUDGET, page 4

Downers Grove reminds residents of water restrictions From May 15 to Sept. 15, residents are permitted to use outdoor water based on an even/ odd system, which uses the last digit of an address to determine the day. If an address ends in an even number, the resident can water on even calendar days. If the address ends in an odd number, the resident can water on odd calendar days. Outdoor water usage is permitted between 4 and 11 a.m. and 4 and 11 p.m.on your watering day. Watering at peak times of the day is inefficient and wasteful due to evaporation. In addition, restricting the hours of outdoor water usage allows the village’s water tanks to refill. Violators are subject to a $50 fine. The use of water collected from rain barrels is not subject to the village’s water restrictions and conservation policies. The Environmental Protection Agency also has released tips for using water outdoors wisely. Dividing outdoor water usage

by this even/odd system decreases the demand for water and, under normal conditions, will maintain adequate water pressure for the health and safety of the residents. If the village is not able to maintain adequate water pressure with the even/odd restrictions, an Emergency Water Ban can be declared. The Emergency Water Ban has three phases of additional restrictions. Phase I prohibits the use of automatic sprinkler devices and systems, bans the filling of swimming pools, and bans the washing of automobiles. Phase II prohibits the use of hoses. Phase III prohibits the outdoor use of water altogether. Residents may apply for a permit to water new sod or other new plantings on a daily basis, if needed. The permit is $31 and is valid for up to three weeks. Applicants may apply at Public Works, 5101 Walnut Ave. and must provide a copy of the receipt for landscape material.

FAREWELL Continued from page 1 has been active in a number of community organizations, including Helping Girls Navigate Adolescence, the Character Counts Coalition, District 58 Strategic Planning Committee and the Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58. Commissioner Geoff Neudstadt, who has served on the council since 2007, recognized Schnell’s impact on the community, as well as his own growth as a commissioner during Tuesday’s ceremony. “Being a councilmember is very demanding, and you’ve given 110 percent,” Neudstadt said, while fighting back tears. “Thank you for making Downers Grove a place where I never wanted to leave, and for keeping it a place where I want to raise my family.”

A number of residents and community leaders also thanked Schnell for her service to the village, including a six-minute video presentation prepared by the Downers Grove Area Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Waldack was also honored during the meeting. He began his service as commissioner in 2005 and has lived in Downers Grove since 1985. “I truly mean that it’s been an honor serving the residents of the village of Downers Grove,” Waldack said. “I tried to be fair, consistent and avoid expediency, which is what I think all people should want and expect from their leadership.” Waldack’s activity in the community also extends beyond his service on the Village Council. He has served as vice president of Senior Home Sharing, chair of the DuPage County Inter-Agency Paratransit Coordinating Council and as

vice president for the Chicago Affiliate for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Recently re-elected commissioner Bill Barnett said Waldack’s service is reflective of his commitment to the village and its residents. “There has been nobody that cared more genuinely and more sincerely about their community in the time that I’ve been here,” Barnett said of Waldack’s time on the council. “Nobody has demonstrated a more sincere, heartfelt care for their community than you did, Bill.” After the celebration for Schnell and Waldack, the Village Council swore in its new and returning members. Barnett, who held on to his seat, and newcomers David Olsen and Greg Hosé, were each sworn in as commissioners on the Village Council. jsamples@buglenewspapers.com

WESTMONT BUDGET Continued from page 3 for eating tax. “That will have to pass and be enacted by the new board to prevent this budget from being half a million dollars in the red. People need to realize that we’re not quite there yet.” The board also made several cuts to the general fund.The most significant savings will come from maintaining staff vacancies in a number of departments. This attrition will save the village $344,669. “We have a staff in this village that has taken furlough days. They’ve had wage freezes, and they’ve done a lot of work,” Trustee Sue Senicka said. “The flip side of that is we will not be replacing retirees for this year, and those positions will remain unfilled.That’s going to add more burden on the remaining staff. It’s not a cake walk, and I applaud every single employee in this village.” By extending the life expectancy of police, fire and public works vehicles, the village also expects to save $122,633 in the 2013-14

budget. Furthermore, the village will reduce police department hours from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. to 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and cut Committee of the Whole meetings form the Village Board schedule in the upcoming year.These two moves will save $76,470. The adoption of an appropriations ordinance in July is the last step in the budget process. Sworn In The village of Westmont swore in its newly elected officials during its May 6 Village Board meeting. Ronald Gunter was sworn in as mayor, replacing former Mayor William Rahn after his retirement from the office January. Gunter ran unopposed. Bruce Barker, James Addington and Harold Barry III were sworn in as Village Board trustees, filling three open positions left by Lee Fleming, Pat Klebenow and Ellen Emery. Fleming, Klebenow and Emery did not seek re-election. “I want to thank the outgoing board members for the opportunity to work with you,” Village Manager Ronald Searl said. “It’s been a real pleasure, and staff is looking forward to working with the new board members.” jsamples@buglenewspapers.com

ForuM Letter to the Editor New policy promotes green agenda, sidesteps flood control At the DuPage County Stormwater Committee meeting prior to passage of the new ordinance, the Burke representative made it absolutely clear that this would codify a change in policy that had already been occurring for years, under the radar; and that the new ordinance would no longer deal with rainfalls that caused flooding, but would be focused only on rainfalls of one inch or less. The reality - rains of one inch or less do not cause flooding. The new ordinance is aimed at a green agenda, not flood control. Unbeknownst to the taxpayer, the reality is that for 15 years the SMD leadership has actively moved away from flood control to the green infrastructure agenda. This is not designed to eliminate flooding, but to enhance water quality. The DuPage County Stormwater Management Division was originally created in 1987 to deal with countywide flooding. This has caused the following to occur: 1. Millions of taxpayer monies have been funneled to crony engineering firms.

2.County Stormwater employee time is used to promote the green agenda instead of flood control. 3. The SMD has performed no forward planning in unprotected flood prone or flood risk areas. 4. Only after the Stormwater Management Committee Chairman Jim Zay’s town of Carol Stream was left underwater did the County Stormwater Division approve flood control projects. On April 11, SMD Director Anthony Charlton was in Springfield lobbying for HB1522. This Illinois House bill will turn the original flood control bill into a green infrastructure bill. It will use heavy taxes on all properties in DuPage County to force property owners to install green infrastructure. The sad truth is that DuPage County SMD has moved away from flood control and left property owners unprotected and underwater by the very office that was instituted to protect us. Downers Grove taxpayers already pay a stormwater fee on all properties. Laurel Q. Bowen Downers Grove Resident

District 58 Board swears in new member, elects officers and sets last day of school During a special reorganizational meeting on May 6, the District 58 Board of Education swore in new member Jim Paul and elected Sallie Lupescu as president and John Cooper as vice president. Paul, a member of the district’s Financial Advisory Committee, a CPA and a parent of two students

at Belle Aire School, was elected in an uncontested race April 9. Board President Steve Funk did not seek a second term in office, and Lupescu thanked him during the re-organization meeting for his dedicated service. On Monday, May 6, the District 58 School Board also voted to establish the last day

of school as Wednesday, June 5. This was the last day that had been established earlier this spring. One emergency day was used April 18 as a result of the flooding that hit the area, but the district had scheduled more than the required number of student attendance days, so it is not necessary to make up the day.

Meg Van Dyke named Teacher of the Year On May 3 at its annual retirement dinner for staff, the Downers Grove Elementary EducationAssociation recognized O’Neill science teacher Meg Van Dyke as its 2013 Teacher of the Year. Van Dyke,who holds a doctorate in educational technology, was praised for her dedication, passion and commitment to science education and inspiring her students. She has written numerous grants to purchase items for her department, formed student groups to participate in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math)-related competitions and challenges, and organizes an Energy Day at the school each fall and a Chemistry Day each spring. She also sponsors the student council, and even had her head shaved at the St. Baldrick’s event at Downers Grove South in March to reward them for surpassing their fundraising goal for the organization. “I love instilling a love of science in young people,whether

that is in my classroom, working with my engineering students, or with my Energy Kids who teach fourth graders about types of energy and energy conservation,” Van Dyke said. Van Dyke said she loves seeing the surprise and excitement when unexpected things happen during laboratory sessions or special events -- such as blowing things up, or lighting students’ hands on fire during Chemistry Day -- and laughing with her students every single day. Other nominees for this year’s DGEEA Teacher of the Year award were O’Neill band teacher Glen Sorgatz, Puffer/ Whittier P.E. teacher Jeanne Smith, O’Neill language arts teacher Beverly West (above right), O’Neill language arts/ reading teacher Nicole Ferroli, Indian Trail third grade teacher Nancy Schneider, Indian Trail sixth grade teacher Janice Conboy, Whittier/Highland/ Hillcrest art teacher Jon Belonio and Lester resource teacher Kimberly Fisher.

Horoscopes A penny saved is a penny earned this week. A bargain isn’t really a bargain if the item is neither useful nor practical. Physical activity is a good way to pass the time and it shouldn’t cost a thing.

Show that you mean business. Jeans and a T-shirt won’t get you anywhere, but showing off your sense of style and good taste will earn you raves in the week ahead. Only a true professional will win the day.

Couch potatoes need not apply. The best way to get the most out of your week is by getting out there and doing. Perform research, lay out plans, or look for problems to solve to gain the most satisfaction.

The best things in life are free. Find outlets for excess energy by grabbing the golf clubs, taking a hike or tackling household chores. Spending money should not be a primary goal in the week ahead.

Stick with the plan. No matter what situation arises in the week to come, don’t be derailed from your original goal. You can’t solve all of the world’s problems, but you can take care of your own.

Like a famous TV cop used to say, “All we want are the facts.” Focus on cut-and-dried facts, rather than trying to tap into your creative side this week. Let conventional wisdom be your guide; don’t think outside the box.

You may not be a movie star, but you can look the part. Take a little extra time to polish your appearance and you may be surprised at the results. Following whims will be more satisfying than work this week.

Keep an eye out for adventure. Don’t hole up in the house when you and a special someone can explore the world in the week to come. Be supportive of friends or loved ones who may need a little boost.

Don’t curb your enthusiasm. A positive state of mind can make even the most mundane trip an exciting adventure in the week ahead. If the weather won’t cooperate, lose yourself in a book.

Do or do not; there is no try. This week is the time to cross nagging little chores off your to-do list. If you’re feeling lonesome, go looking for someone and find someone you will!

Those who go looking for faults in every little detail are likely to find them. No one is perfect, so don’t expect anyone to be an exception this week. Adopt a more forgiving approach to relationships.

Make the world go away. Others may not appreciate your whimsical outlook but your heart is in the right place. Get out and about this week; you can find the perfect setting to do your own thing.

Downers North finishes seventh in state By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

For a lot of teams,finishing seventh in the state meet in any sport would be a successful accomplishment and a joyous occasion. Not for the Downers Grove North boys gymnastics team. The Trojans placed seventh with a team score of 148.950 at the state meet held last weekend at LincolnWay East High School. Wheaton Co-op won the team title with a 161.650, while Conant was second with a 155.700. Stevenson (151.800), Mundelein (150.700), Lyons (149.700) and Hinsdale Central (149.650) rounded out the top six. North was disappointed mainly because the program has reached a level of talent where the team expects to go out and battle for a top three finish and a state trophy every year. “They know they could have been cleaner here tonight,” said North coach Al Bekkedal. “The kids also knew that third to fifth was going to be decided by a point and if we hit like we did at the sectional meet (at sectional, the Trojans posted a score of 152.750), we would have had a real good shot at third and they were hoping for a trophy. But, they did the best they could and they worked real hard all season and it is what it is.” At the state meet, they posted a 25.950 on the floor exercise, a 22.300 on the pommel horse, a 24.650 on the rings, a 26.250 on the vault and a 24.250 on the horizontal bar. “We didn’t expect to do that bad. We had the goal to do our best this year, the same as in the past,” said junior all-arounder Strahinja Sopcic. “We wanted to go for gold or go for a trophy. All we could do is try our best.” “They are perfectionists and they want to do the best they can every meet and that is good,” Bekkedal said.

Sopcic and senior John Schubert both competed in the all-around competition, with Schubert placing 10th overall with a 51.850 and Sopcic was 14th with a 50.950. Neither were thrilled with overall performance, although both placed in the top half of the 30 all-around competition. Schubert scored a 9.100 on the floor, an 8.600 on pommel horse, a 7.350 on the still rings, an 8.700 on vault, an 8.550 on parallel bars and a 9.450 on the horizontal bar. “I would have liked a better meet to have gone out on, Schubert said. “Today was not a great day for me.” Sopcic tallied an 8.600 on the floor, a 7.950 on pommel horse, a 8.750 on the still rings, an 8.800 on vault, an 9.100 on parallel bars and a 7.750 on the horizontal bar. “I went all out and I am happy with that and I will have to live with the scores,” Sopcic said.“I have some stuff to go over to work on this summer. Hopefully the coaches at Premier and camps can help because the offseason is where you get better.” Although they were not thrilled with their all-around performances, Bekkedal was pleased with his top gymnasts. “(Strahinja) is the hardest working boy I have coached in 32 years, he just does not stop,” Bekkedal said. “John Shubert, he has grown up from his freshman year to his senior year from a little boy to a young man who has become an outstanding leader. Renald Daemicke is another one of our senior captains who has improved a ton.” On the second day,both Schubert and Sopcic reached the finals in individual events. Schubert placed second in the horizontal bars with a score of 9.450 and 11th in the pommel horse with a 7.600 Sopcic was fifth in the rings with a 9.000 and sixth in the parallel bars with a 9.150.

Locals statebound By Scott Taylor Sports Editor

The night started off strong for Downers North and it finished off right. The Trojans took home first place in the opening event, the 4x800-meter relay Friday at the Lockport Sectional and closed the event by winning the 4x400. The 4x800 team ran a time of 9:30.86, while the 4x400 team had a time of 4:04.03. The top two finishers in each event, as well as those who hit the state-qualifying mark, advance to this weekend’s state meet at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston. The lone member of both relay teams was Stephanie Urbancik, who also took second in the 400 (59.47) to qualify for state in three events. “I’m really happy with the two relay championships, but was a little disappointed with the 400,” Urbancik said.“I’m just really so happy to be going to

state next week.” Urbancik hopes to bring home a couple of medals after state. “Our goal is definitely to medal (in the 4x800),” Urbancik said. “I want to get the top six, I want to match where we were last year or beat it. We want to medal in the 4x400.” Also qualifying for state in three events was Rebecca Ridderhoff. She teamed with her sister Jessica Ridderhoff, Barbara Armstrong and Urbancik in the 4x400, and won the 100 hurdles (15.82) and took second in the 300 hurdles (47.33), despite a fall over the last hurdle. “I wasn’t expecting it, but it was good,” Ridderhoff said after winning the 100 hurdles.“I realized I had a chance, so I went as hard as I could. I haven’t been feeling good and was seeded third, so I was hoping to place second.” Meghan Bonfield was also a member of the 4x800 relay team, along with Gabrielle Scott Taylor/Bugle Staff

Trojans’ badminton ties for fourth in state By Mike Sandrolini Sports Reporter

The Downers North badminton team netted its best finish since 2010 at the state tournament last Saturday, tying Reavis for fourth place with 11.5 points. While happy with the end result, Coach Anthony Calderone was admittedly hoping for a little more, but fate came into play during the finals. Singles players Jessica Gomez , a member of this year’s state champion, Thornton Fractional South, suffered a knee injury and had to forfeit her match against a

Naperville Central opponent for third place. Had Gomez won that match, Downers North would have received the extra half point and tied Fremd for second in the team standings with 12 points. Instead, Naperville Central and Fremd tied for second. Seniors Emily Planek and Emily Buhle closed out their standout careers by advancing to the third-place match, which they won, 21-17, 11-21, 21-13 over a team from Stevenson. The duo’s only loss of the tournament took place in the semifinals—21-18, 21-12 to eventual state doubles champions Denna Zayed and

Marissa Mangala of Reavis. “I feel for our No. 1 doubles,” Calderone said. “They’ve played well all year long. They went into (the) Reavis (match) a little flat-footed. I really wanted them to get to the finals; they really deserved it. In my mind they’re still a state champion team.” In singles, seniors Amanda Schneeweis and Karissa Brazdys both made it to the fifth round consolation matches. “They ended up in top 16,” Calderone noted. “They just couldn’t get over the top. They played well and hard.They didn’t quit.”

Senior Nikita Gandhi and sophomore Kiley Pooler won their opening-round match, but dropped their next two. Pooler will be the only state qualifier returning for the Trojans next spring. “This is a team that is the hardest for me to let go because they invested in our program,” Calderone said. “It hurts me to see them fall short of their goals. Even though we’re graduating quite a few people, this group leaving sets the tone for the offseason. I hope these younger girls saw it and follow in their footsteps. We’ve been in this

position before (with graduating seniors), so I’m not worried.” Downers South was represented at state by senior Zoe Fredriksen, the Mustangs’ No. 1 singles player, who lost her opening round and first round consolation matches.

BASEBALL Danny Mayer had two hits in Downers South’s 1-0 loss to Willowbrook. Zack Burdi allowed four hits and one run, striking out eight. See ROUNDUP, page 15

Kevin Raher had a triple and four RBI. •Lisle and Westmont: met on the baseball diamond for a homeand-home series early last week. Lisle gave the Sentinels all they could handle in both contests, held May 6 and 7,but the Sentinels prevailed in each game, winning 3-1 May 6 and 9-8 May 7. The Lions’ Alex Ventrella and the Sentinels’ Jean Pietrzak were locked in a pitcher’s duel through six innings of a 1-1 tie. But the Sentinels struck for two runs in the top of the seventh and held Lisle in check for the win—their 20th of the season. Tommy Franczak and Ryan Schlicher delivered RBI singles in the seventh for the Sentinels. Pietrzak drove in the Sentinels’ first run of the game in the sixth, but the Lions scored their only run in the bottom half of the

STATE Continued from page 12 Hesslau and Zayna Jan. She also hopes the team can improve on last year’s finish. “We took sixth place last year and I would really like to improve on that this year,” Bonfield said. “I think that would be awesome. I don’t think we have peaked yet and we’re all really excited to see what we can do.” She also is headed to state in the 800 after placing second with a time of 2 minutes, 22.87 seconds. “I’m really excited because I’ve never qualified in an individual event,” Bonfield said. “I’m so excited that I finally get to. I was just trying to finish strong.” Freshman Grace Maletich qualified in the 1,600 with a time of 5:17.5. “I didn’t want this to be my last race,” Maletich said. “I wanted to do my best with no regrets. I was trying to state with the leaders. It feels amazing.” Downers South has a pair of relays headed to state as well. The 4x800 relay squad was second (9:33.98), while the 4x200 relay team of Sam Baeten, Shaliyah Dixon-Tucker, Michaela Hackbarth and Jada Frankin won with a time of 1:45.06, two

inning after Brian Czyl came home on an error. Ventrella ended up with eight strikeouts for the game, and Pietrzak finished with six while holding the Lions to four hits. The second contest between the two squads featured more offense. With the game tied 7-7 going into the bottom of the sixth, Westmont, as it did May 6, broke a tie with a two-run inning. Lisle tried to rally in the top of the seventh on Ryan Van Volkenburg’s sacrifice fly, but that’s the only run it could muster. Greg Pietrzak recorded the final out in relief on a groundout to get the victory for Westmont. Robert Kokoszka singled twice and drove in two runs, while Zach Moran finished 3-for-3 with an RBI. Franczak (solo home run to center field), Schlicher (two triples) and Greg Pietrzak each had two hits and an RBI. Danny Dwyer had two hits, Charlie Donovan doubled and Jean Pietrzak had an RBI. Van Volkenburg turned in a 3-for-3 day offensively with a double and four RBIs for Lisle.

Ventrella also contributed three hits and an RBI. Czyl (RBI) and Bailey Welch (double) each had multiple-hit games. Cliff Krause and Adam Grego drove in a run apiece. Lisle’s Van Volkenburg also doubled and singled twice May 9 vs. Dwight, but the Lions spotted Dwight a 6-0 lead and ended up losing, 6-5. Grego had a pair of RBIs in the game. Westmont (22-5) crushed Plano at home, 10-2, on May 8, and lost to Manteno, 4-2, the next day, yet finished 13-3 to capture the I-8 North Division championship. The Sentinels’ 22 victories ties them with the 1999 team for the second-most wins during a season in Westmont history. Donovan launched a two-run homer in the win over Plano and finished with three RBIs. Jean Pietrzak added two hits and two RBIs, and Kokoszka drove in a run and had two hits. Andrew Rosol got the win on the mound. The loss to Manteno snapped a nine-game Sentinels winning streak. Donovan (two RBIs) homered once again, and

seconds ahead of second place. “We knew we had to get out there and win this,” DixonTucker said. “It feels amazing. We knew we had it.We got good handoffs and got out fast. We want to make it to finals and on the podium.” “I had no idea how big the lead was, so the main goal was to cross the finish line first,” Franklin said.“I knew they were coming after me, but I was holding them off. When you have good leads, it always makes you feel better, but I’ve seen us lose big leads, so I never get too cocky about it. It feels awesome, another year downstate. We’re going to need good handoffs at state.” Franklin is also headed to state in the triple jump after placing second (35-feet, 04.25-inches). Also headed to state for the Mustangs is the 3,200 duo of Abby Kargol (11:03.4) and Haley Albers (1:04.31). Benet had a qualifier in Audrey Blazek, who advanced in the 3,200 (11:12.06).

The Sentinels finished runnerup in the team standings to Aurora Christian (154 points to 108). Returning state qualifier,senior Chloe Marshinski, who earned all-state honors last spring in the 3,200 with a seventh-place finish, captured the sectional title in 11:57.76—nearly a minute ahead of the secondplace finisher. Maggie Arndt, a junior who qualified last year in the 800, goes downstate this time in the 1,600. She placed third at sectionals, but came in under the state qualifying time. But the individual standout at sectionals for Westmont turned out to be freshman Annie Carlson, who won the triple jump title (32 feet, 8 inches), as well as the 300 low hurdles crown (47.80 seconds). She also punched her ticket to state in the 100 high hurdles by placing second. Sophomores Elisa Klewinski and Emma May also made it to the state meet with secondplace finishes in the long jump and 400, respectively. The Sentinels’ 4x800 and 4x400 relay squads—each of which qualified for state in 2012—earned a repeat trip to Charleston. The 4x800 was the sectional champion

Gen6 makes debut at Chicagoland Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

This season at the Daytona 500, NASCAR unveiled the new, Generation 6 car that will be used this year and beyond and for the first time last week, that car was on track at Chicagoland Speedway. Six drivers; Kevin Harvick, Ryan Newman, Greg Biffle, Jamie McMurray, Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson, took the Gen6 car around the mile-and-a-half oval in Joliet as part of a tire test for Goodyear. Biffle liked the way the Gen6 car handled on the Joliet track. “This is a ‘Last of the Mohicans’ track. It is one of the last tracks that haven’t got the repave,”

Biffle said. “It’s very, very unique, because there are bumps and the pavement is wore out. You can run top, middle or bottom. A track like this puts on really, really good racing for a mile-and-a-half race track. This racetrack is a lot of fun because it offers good sideby-side racing. The fans want to see passing and we want to pass. I think this will be a good track for this car. “It makes a big difference. The car has a bit more mechanical rear grip and you can feel that in the corner. It drives straighter and we like that feel inside the track.” Harvick agreed. “As expected, I think everyone knew the cars would be faster,” he said.“We had laps (during testing) that were faster than we qualified

Kevin Harvick discussed the tire test at Chicagoland Speedway.

here last year. We are about a second faster than we were at last year’s race pace.” During the two days of testing, the drivers recorded several laps around Chicagoland, making short runs and long runs to test the tires’ wear. “From a driver’s standpoint, it’s a lot of laps,” Harvick said. “The engineers are looking to get some feedback on what new right sides and new left sides do and the

construction and compound and whatever they are looking for. I think (Goodyear) feels pretty comfortable with the tire they raced with here last year.That tire seems to be pretty durable and we get fairly good lap times and the wear seems to be good. They’re always looking for something that is better and they use our cars to help their technology make tires better.” Harvick also said that being on

track at Chicagoland gives the six drivers an advantage come September when they are back for the first race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. “When you look at all the information you can get and when you look at the time and effort that you put out and the money spent from the teams and Goodyear,” Harvick said.“It is definitely not a disadvantage to be here.”

WEEKLY RACING UPDATE NASCAR HONORS MOMS With its annual event falling on Mother’s Day weekend, Darlington Raceway has built a longtime tradition with its NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500 race. Each year, the grand marshals for the race have been the moms of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers, a tradition that fans, drivers and their families have enjoyed over the last several years. “This is a fun and unique opportunity each year for Darlington Raceway and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers to honor their moms on Mother’s Day weekend,” Darlington Raceway President Chris Browning said. “This weekend makes Darlington Raceway a special place to be for not only for the drivers, but for the fans that are attending the races and spending time with their moms as well. It gives everyone a chance to honor their mother’s at this special Mother’s Day weekend event.”

Easy steps to take control of your retirement savings By StatePoint Media

Want to take control of your retirement planning, but don’t know how? You’re not alone. Most Americans want to manage their retirement portfolio on their own, but feel intimidated by the process, a new study reveals. Nearly three-quarters of Americans said they’d love to manage their own retirement portfolio if they had the right knowledge and tools, according to a survey by Jemstep.com, an online investment advisor, and market research group, Harris Interactive. Meanwhile, 67 percent said they think retirement investing is complex and intimidating. The good news is that planning for your future doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are four things you can do to take control: • Know how much you have and need: When you’re dieting, it’s helpful to weigh yourself and set a goal weight. Retirement savings works the same way. How much money do you have and what do you need to save for retirement? You can turn to free online tools for help. For example, CNN Money’s online calculator factors in your age, current income and savings to determine what you should be saving yearly to support 80 percent of your pre-retirement income. Visit cgi.money.cnn.com/tools  to determine your goals.  • Create a diversified portfolio: Research shows that the single best thing you can do for your retirement portfolio is to diversify holdings. That means splitting money between different asset classes, such as stocks, bonds, cash and commodities. Each asset class behaves differently under different market conditions. For example, when a recession hits, some asset classes might rise while others fall.  Diversifying means that your portfolio should be more stable.

How should you slice the pie? That depends on three things: your tolerance for risk, your goals, and the number of years until retirement. • Select the best investments: Next, you’ll need to pick specific funds for each asset class. You might decide, for example, to put 20 percent of your portfolio in funds that represent the stocks of large, stable companies. Which funds should you choose? When you’re making that choice, you’ll want to look at “fund characteristics,” such as the fees it charges, its historic returns, its volatility, and other factors.

THE BUGLE MAY 15, 2013

Business & Real Estate Dealing with obsessivecompulsive coworkers Q. I work with someone who just loves obsessing about petty details.As far as he can tell, the sky is falling, every detail will cause the end of the world, and every mistake may end a life. I find him exhausting. Is there anyone I can get him to stop flipping out on every tiny detail of my job? A. Yes, your colleague has an anxiety disorder. People are not born wanting to alienate everyone around them by obsessing about details.The trouble is people with anxiety disorders attach Armageddonlike importance to every detail because they are terrified all the time. Anxiety disorders have two parts: biochemistry and psychology. Since you can’t insist your coworker see a psychiatrist for some good medication, you can only work with the psychology of an anxiety disorder. The workplace is pretty scary even for people who don’t have anxiety disorders.There is the possibility of getting fired, being embarrassed or publicly failing. Even calm people have days where every detail seems like life or death. No amount of detail management will fix your coworker’s anxiety. Ironically, what works is to ask your coworker to describe his worst case scenario if one of these details drops through the cracks. All of a sudden, the details will be seen against the backdrop of an actual real problem. Once your coworker has described this problem, you can help him find solutions if this problem occurs.The good news is we can all prepare for a specific problem. On the other hand, no one is so perfect that we can guarantee no mistake will be made on any one project. The idea with anxiety is to take control of what we can. If we worry that we will be fired, we can put out our resume. If we worry we’ll lose a client, we can market. People are good at coming up with a Plan B if they can define a problem.The trouble with obsessing mindlessly about details is a problem is never defined.

Your coworker is attempting to fix a house by learning to ride a horse (yes, this doesn’t make sense). He believes that if he can control every detail, then magically some undefined scary problem won’t occur. Of course, since he hasn’t defined the problem, controlling every detail of a project won’t guarantee anything except making coworkers hate him. Consider that most superstitions were probably made up by people who had anxiety disorders. If you spill salt, you must throw some over your shoulder. If you break a mirror, then seven years of bad luck will ensue. If you walk under a ladder, something bad will happen. Notice that what every superstition has in common is the vagueness of the “bad” thing that will happen. Workplace superstitions are as powerful as any other fear based belief. People will often do irrational and ineffective things for no good reason other than to avoid their fear. By requiring people around you to label the problem, you dispel the power of vague anxiety. In the old myths and legends, knowing the true name of an evil magician meant you had power over him. In the modern workplace, defining the true nature of a problem has the same effect!

The last word(s) Q. I have a coworker who has done a lot of therapy. She goes around saying mean things and says she learned to be honest in therapy. Is therapy about running other people over with honesty? A. No, therapy is about improving yourself not about sharing all your feelings. Mean people will find any excuse (even therapy) for hurting others. Daneen Skube, Ph.D., executive coach, trainer, therapist and speaker, also appears as the FOX Channel’s “Workplace Guru” each Monday morning. She’s the author of “Interpersonal Edge: Breakthrough Tools for Talking to Anyone, Anywhere, About Anything” (Hay House, 2006).

TICKET Continued from page 6 NHTSA, 62 percent of the 10,135 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2011 during the overnight hours of 6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m. were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash. “Seat belts save thousands of lives every year, but far too many motorists still are not buckling up, especially at night when the risk of getting in a crash is even greater,” Bormann said. “Our goal is to save more lives, so Downers Grove Police Officers will be out enforcing seat belt laws around the clock.” In 2011, seat belts saved an estimated 11,949 lives nationwide according to NHTSA. While this year’s Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign runs from May 10 through May 27, officers are out enforcing seat belt laws year-round. Buckle up and encourage your loved ones to do the same. You will save the cost of a ticket and may save a life.
