A number drivers are causing the change in the district’s technology needs, including the continued adoption of Common Core State Standards and a bulk of the purchase, more than $633,000 to comply with PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness of College and Careers) to be used for the purchase of Chromebooks and new computer labs needed to administer the computerbased test.

In addition, the district has seen tremendous growth in the use of non-district devices using the wireless infrastructure; devices and operating systems need to be replace being at the end of life for devices and operating systems and for professional development initiatives well as the implementation of Google Apps for Education. Grizaffi said the initiative takes funding of sufficient computing devices and infrastructure to ensure the mandated PARCC assessment can be administered in the predefined timeframes, while also ensuring technology-based instruction is not affected.

The funding of these initiatives will be absorbed into the Technology Department’s annual lease funding budget and will be financed with a lease purchase for the 20142015 fiscal year in the amount of $848,000 funded via a fiveyear technology lease. In addition, $665,000 will be spent for the common software renewals, with 13 different programs up for software licensing renewal including the likes of AIMSweb, Edline, Parentlink, BoardDocs, MAP, NWEA, CPAA, Microsoft software for windows and office suite products.

there is a fine, new memorial and small garden on Prairie, just north of Theodore. She hopes to turn it into a rose garden, similar to the one planted between the original Lidice site and the rebuilt town. Some of the blooms wound up as presents to mom from several of the children who attended Sunday. Organizers hope they will someday bring their children to the annual memorial. Oberlin and her committee organized the extended event June 8,arranging to have Georgiou show the movie for the annual event, and catering from Klas, a longtime, well-known Bohemian

restaurant from Cicero, a favorite of the many of Czech ancestry who come down annually for the Lidice remembrance. Oberlin has worked hard on the event, even helping to serve the homemade goulash and rye bread, water and pop to visitors in the church’s community room. Oberlin said she’s not Czech, but she feels a special connection to the memorial, having grown up across the street from the original. “As long as I’m alive, I’m going to make sure people don’t forget,” she said recently. That sentiment was echoed often during Sunday’s memorial.

“It’s strange to call it a celebration,” John G. Pritasil, president of the Czechoslovak American Congress, said opening the event. “But it is a celebration of the failure of what (the Nazis) tried to accomplish. “They tried to erase Lidice … but here we are, 72 years later in the Midwest, remembering what happened.” Pritasil also noted the many different ways “Lidice” is pronounced, including “Lah DEES,” and “Lah DEET zah.” “Each person has a little different way of saying it,” he said. “But how you say it doesn’t matter. It’s important you remember it.”

Village receives 2014 economic development award ‘Edie Award’ given jointly by Illinois Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Development Council The Illinois Chamber and Illinois Development Council give the ComEd-sponsored“Edie Awards” to honor those who imagine, invest, build and bring jobs, growth and prosperity to Illinois communities. The annual award is given jointly by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and the Illinois Development Council (IDC) to recognize significant economic development projects finished in the prior year throughout Illinois. The Village of Romeoville was one of six to receive this award. Romeoville was recognized for the Peacock Engineering Expansion. The Peacock Engineering Company, LLC headquartered in Geneva, Illinois. They have added over 500,000 square feet of space to its existing portfolio of four modern facilities for a total of 1.9 million square feet by leasing a facility at 1001 Crossroads Parkway in Romeoville as a specialty primary and secondary ambient, refrigerated

and frozen food packaging plant creating unique solutions for their clients. It wasn’t a normal retrofit as the project required converting the facility from a ‘big box’ distribution center format to cold storage and packaging operations. With great coordination by the developer and the Village

The employment at the Romeoville plant is expected to increase to nearly 600 employees as new lines and new customers arrive. “We are honored that Peacock

Engineering chose Romeoville for their expansion. Romeoville has a lot to offer, including a great development team,” said Mayor John Noak. “Romeoville has been fortunate to add over 3,500 jobs in the last four years.” The Illinois Chamber and IDC believe it’s important to showcase recent accomplishments -- especially when they translate into more jobs, tax base and economic vitality in Illinois. “Peacock is a great example of investing in our state and creating jobs,” said Doug Whitley, President and CEO of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce. This is the second time Romeoville has received this award, the first award was received for the Kimberly Clark Development. Romeoville was also recognized earlier this year for High Performance in Economic Development by the International Economic Development Council. Noak and representatives from Peacock Engineering will accept the award from the Illinois Chamber of Commerce on June 26.

Lidice: Czech for, ‘Take That, Adolph!’ By nick reiher managing editor @Jolietilnews

OK, I swear John Pritasil, president of the Czechoslovak American Congress, was looking at my notes. Out of habit, no pun intended, I almost threw up my hand and yelled,“Sister, he copied!” I was sitting in the crowd on a beautiful Sunday, jotting down notes at the annual Lidice Memorial in Crest Hill. (See my story on Page 1). As the United Moravian Societies Singers were serenading us with traditional folksongs, I mused about the many different ways people pronounce “Lidice,” the town in the current Czech Republican that rose from the ashes after a massacre by the Nazis 72 years ago. I mused for a while about the name “Lidice,” which I had first seen on a Pace bus not long after I came to Will County nearly 30 years ago. It took me a while to find out why that name was on a bus after all. Then, there’s how you say it: “Lah DEES;” “Lah DEET zuh;” “LEE DEE CHEY.”Always thinking about clever things to say (I know, you thought I just spouted them on the spot), I wrote down in parentheses in my notes:

“Doesn’t matter how you say it, just remember it.” I listened to a few more speakers, congratulating myself on my wit, when Pritasil gets up there and says, “Each person has a little different way of saying it. It’s not important how you say it. It’s important you remember it.” Oh well, it’s not important who said it first, only that we do remember Lidice, the source of an atrocity at the hands of the

it’s kind of sad more people don’t know about lidice. it is a wonderful story about how by working together, good can triumph over evil, eliminating racism along the way. Nazis that a relative handful of people throughout the world, including what would become a Crest Hill neighborhood, took as a challenge in rubbing Hitler’s crazed, smug venom back in his mustachioed muzzle. Crest Hill, noted Mayor Ray Soliman, has one of only two Lidice memorials in the United States. The other is in Phillips, Wisc. But there are memorials, streets, etc. all over the world to memorialize the tiny Czech

town. On Sunday, we got a chance to see what a mining town in England did to help rebuild Lidice, courtesy of a documentary presented in person by a representative of the company that made it. It was gratifying to see younger people in the audience at the memorial and the movie showing. For years when I attended the event, the crowd was mostly elderly Czechs from Chicago, Cicero and Berwyn, bastions of Bohemians. Now, there were young families and teens, which made me comfortable the story of Lidice would not go away any time soon. Especially if Tina Oberlin has anything to say about it.The Crest Hill alderwoman has dedicated herself and her special events committee to making the annual Lidice Memorial event a focal point for the city and the region. To help make that happen at the recent event, Tina did about everything except whistle the Czech National Anthem. Give her time, though. It’s kind of sad more people don’t know about Lidice. It is a wonderful story about how by working together, good can triumph over evil, eliminating racism along the way. That sure sounds like a lesson we can use pretty often.

It takes a village to take care of one Meals On Wheels is a great example of all the good that was, that is and that will be At our Romeoville Golden Ager Club a few weeks ago, I was inspired and impressed with a talk given by Kay from Carillon. She discussed the need for volunteers for Meals On Wheels. I was very impressed because Meals On Wheels disbanded some years ago. Now Kay and volunteers from Carillon, and Romeoville took command for this worthy project and to help the needy in the village. I and many other “old timers” from Romeoville give testimony and a tribute to these fairly new residents. The Golden Ager Carillon residents help with

many projects. We do not need to ask. Ernestine, my friend did Meals On Wheels in Bolingbrook for seven years. She also is a symbol of goodness for helping others. Most of these people are disabled and cannot cook. Some of her volunteers do this work during their lunch break. Some also are school children. “Good things” follow and enhance a village and residents who strive to make things better. Most people do not want recognition. I and others applaud their goodness and their need to volunteer.

It does take a village. Our Village of Romeoville has truly been blessed with people from Carillon, Grand Haven, Lakewood Falls, etc. Cooperation is an important necessity to bring our village out as a shining haven to all in need. Kay can be reached at 815372-0013. Will County is in charge, as well as the Catholic Charities. Help is needed only once a month for one hour. Hopefully Kay will receive phone calls for a very honorable and gratifying program. Meals On Wheels is a great example of all the good that was, that is and that will be. Shirlee J.

Minor changes coming to Rock Island schedule On the weekday inbound schedule, the schedules for 16 trains are being adjusted A new Rock Island schedule that seeks to better match train times to actual operating conditions will start on Sunday, June 15, 2014, according to a press release from the city. In some cases, trains will depart earlier than the current schedule, so riders are urged to view the new schedule (attached or online at www. to familiarize themselves with the changes. On the weekday inbound schedule, the schedules for 16 trains are being adjusted, with the departure times from certain stops or running

times between stations being modified by up to five minutes. In most cases, the schedule changes are being made to better reflect actual operating conditions. The schedules for some trains are also being adjusted to eliminate conflicts with other trains in the Blue Island area. On the outbound schedule, the schedules of 19 trains are being adjusted. In almost every case, the changes are being made to reflect actual conditions and the changes amount to no more than three

minutes earlier or later. Two late evening trains are being adjusted by 7 minutes to reflect heavy passenger loading following Chicago White Sox games. On weekends, all but the first inbound trains will depart 5 minutes earlier than currently scheduled, and all outbound trains will arrive 5 minutes later at Joliet. This is to reflect actual conditions, adjust where trains pass each other, and accommodate weekend construction work. The changes are the result of a periodic review of train schedules that Metra performs for each of its lines. Rock Island schedules were last adjusted in 2011.

Keeping it in the family: Handwork tabbed POY By Scott Taylor sports editor @Taylor_Sports

It is never easy to replace a 39goal scorer. It is even harder when the player everyone expects to step up is the former player’s younger sister. For Plainfield North’s Heather Handwork, she was able to duplicate her sister Ashley’s achievements. Not only did the Tigers repeat as regional champions, Heather was able to hit the 30-goal plateau as well, finishing the season with exactly 30 goals despite playing much of the season in the midfield. And, she has concluded her season with the same award her sister won last year, the Voyager Media Girls Soccer Player of the Year. “It’s exciting,” Heather said. “It’s great for the family and is awesome for me to get this award.” “Heather has been the most dominant player in the area this year, and the best player on the field in each game we have played,” Plainfield North coach Jane Crowe said. “She has 30 goals, and has played many games in the midfield. She has led our attack, and has been able to score in a variety of ways. She can shoot from distance, beat defenders off the dribble and score in the air off of restarts.” While there was pressure on Heather, a senior, she was able to handle that well. “I felt a lot of pressure,” she said. “It was weird not playing with her and took some time to get used to. I felt like I dealt with it well. I really stepped up. I was happy with scoring 30 goals, I think I scored 18 last year.” There was also pressure on the

She was our best all-around p l a y e r,” said Joliet Central coach E d u a rd o Contrares. “She is good with either foot and when she is on the field, the girls feel very confident that they were going to win the game.  She was our team general on the field.  She made first  team All-Conference in the SWSC.  She was injured for two weeks and that was when we were blown out of games. She will even be better next year.” 

RACHEL BERNICKY Bernicky was the anchor to the defense on the sectionalfinalist Benet squad. “Rachel is a two-year All-

C o n fe r e n c e player who anchors our defense as one of our center backs,” Benet coach Bob Gros said. “Her combination of speed and size allow her to provide excellent cover behind our other defenders and clean up any mistakes that may occur in the back. Rachel is a very steady dependable, and strong defender who is a major reason why we have earned a school record of 17 shutouts.”

PAIGE FULLER The Plainfield Central junior tallied six goals and 12 assists on the season. >> see ALL-AREA | page 13

Sports >> ALL-AREA, FROM PAGE 12 “She is the heart of our team,” Plainfield Central coach Ken Schoen said.“She does a great job controlling the midfield. She has great skill on the ball and does a tremendous job creating scoring opportunities for both herself and her teammates. She has contributed to 50% of our goals this season.”

MARISOL GALVAN Senior from Minooka tallied seven goals and two assists. She was an All-Sectional and AllC o n fe r e n c e selection this season and will play next year at Northern Illinois University.




two goals, both game winners, for Lockport this season. “She is athletic, great on 1-on1 situations, and her abilities allowed us to play three in the back vs. Nikia Smith, the most dangerous forward we came across this year,” said Lockport coach Todd Elki. “It is very exciting to have Jamie back for three more years, I believe she could end up being one of the top defenders in the state by her senior year. This season she was an All-Conference and All Sectional selection.”

JACQUIE KAUFMAN A junior f o r w a r d from Benet, Kaufman totaled six goals and 12 assists. “Jacquie is a dynamic force as a winger in our 4-3-3 formation,” Gros said. “She has become one of our most dangerous offensive players throughout the season and is currently second on our team in assists after leading our team in assists last year. Jacquie

draws a lot of attention from opposing defenders because of her speed, opening up more space and opportunities for her teammates to operate offensively. Her pace and work ethic have allowed her to consistently get behind opposing defenses and serve quality crosses into the box or slotted balls on the ground to create scoring chances for us.”

KELSEY KRETMAN The Lisle High School junior forward is a three-year varsity player who fired in a team-high 20 goals, added nine assists and was an all-Interstate Eight Conference selection. “She had a standout year,” said Lisle coach Paul Kohorn. “Kelsey is just a solid ball striker. She’s scored on some restarts from pretty far out. She just has a knack for scoring goals.” >> see ALL-AREA | page 14






NICHOLE LOPATIN When Niles West scoring leader Vicki Tirovolas suffered a seasonending torn ACL, coach Brett Clish was looking for someone to pick up the slack.

The sophomore forward filled the void and then some, setting single-season school records for most goals (19) and most points (46). “She was the catalyst when Vicki went out with her torn ACL,” Clish said. “Nichole really turned it on this year as a sophomore and scored all those goals for us.”

GIANNA MARCONI Marconi, a Colorado State

Sports r e c r u i t , finished the season with 21 goals and 18 assists, l e a d i n g Downers North to the regional championship game. “She was a senior captain that led the team both on and off the field,” Downers North coach Bob Calder said. “Gianna understood that she would need to score for the team this year, and successfully did just that. She will be dearly missed next year by our team; Colorado State is getting an outstanding individual.”

MICHELLE MOREFIELD Benet’s team leader, Morefield

finished the season with 11 goals and 17 assists. “Michelle is a four-year varsity soccer player who is the heart and soul of our team, leading us in both goals and assists this season,” Gros said. “She demonstrates exceptional leadership on and off of the field as one of our captains and is the type of player that makes everybody around her better. As our center midfielder, Michelle sets up the timing of our offense with her passing, decision, making, and ability to hold possession of the ball. She has the skill and the vision to set up numerous scoring opportunities for her teammates. In addition, she strikes the ball extremely well, allowing her to shoot

from distance and consistently provide accurate and driven services from corner kicks and free kicks.”

EMILY O’GRADY M a i n e South coach J.J. Crawford jokingly calls O ’ G ra dy “ s p i d e r w o m a n ” because he says, “She just makes saves that most keepers, male or female, can’t make, but she can and that’s just a testament to her.” Another testament to O’Grady’s outstanding play her senior year—she notched seven shutouts and 154 saves—is that she was named all-state by the Illinois High School Soccer Coaches Association this season. The senior will be playing collegiately at Iowa State.

BROOKE POLONUS Polonus helped lead Plainfield North to a sixth straight SPC title, finishing with five goals and four assists as a defender. “Brooke is the anchor of our defense,” Crowe said. “She has played almost every minute this season, and is the leader in the back. She is outstanding at winning balls in the air, and disrupts the opposing team’s attack. Brooke is also very good at keeping forwards from turning and facing the goal. She has been a big part of our 11 shutouts this season. She has also scored five goals this year off of restarts.”

KELSEY PRUETT The senior forward from Plainfield South tallied 14 goals and six assists. She is headed to SIUEdwardsville next year. “Kelsey has been the top offensive player for PSHS the last few seasons,” Plainfield South coach Dave Brown said. “She is a tenacious player with great quickness, vision and ability. Kelsey is a four-year SPC All-Conference performer, two>> see ALL-AREA | page 16




Joliet Slammers sweep River City The Joliet Slammers-Presented by ATI Physical Therapy-came back and defeated River City 2-1 in 14 innings on Sunday to sweep the three-game series. All three games featured some great pitching and Sunday was no exception. Former Slammer Tommy Mendoza was on the hill for River City and Blair Walters started for Joliet. Mendoza was on a roll early, allowing only three singles and picking up ten groundouts through his first five shutout innings. Meanwhile, Walters struck out seven Rascals in his first five innings, allowing one hit and retiring ten in a row at one point. Mendoza was lifted after 7 great innings, giving up no runs on four hits with four strikeouts. He picked up 12 ground ball outs with a great curve ball. Walters was even more effective through his 8 innings. He allowed no runs on just two hits with nine strikeouts and two walks on 110 pitches, 70 of which were strikes. The game was scoreless entering

the 9th inning. Chase Doremus came on in relief for Joliet and pitched the 9th and then 10th innings. He started the 11th and was lifted after River City finally broke the scoreless tie. The Rascals led off the 11th with Bryan Aanderud drawing a walk. Taylor Ard bounced into a fielder’s choice but then Saxon Butler reached on an error by Joliet second baseman Jose Garcia, his third miscue of the day. Josh Ludy followed with an RBI single to give River City the 1-0 lead. Gabriel Shaw pitched the 11th for the Rascals and retired the first two hitters before getting two strikes on Russell Moldenhauer. With the Slammers down to their final strike, Moldenhauer hit the game-tying solo homer to right to make it 1-1 going to the 12th inning. Ryan Connolly came on for Joliet in the 11th to retire the side after their run and then pitched the 12th and 13th. He got out of a bases-loaded-oneout situation to keep it a 1-1 tie.

Brett Zawacki then came on to pitch the 14th for the Slammers and earned the win to cap another great pitching day for Joliet. In the bottom of the 14th, Moldenhauer led off with a double down the right field line. Tyler Grogg came on to pinch run and scored the game-winner on Grant DeBruin’s RBI single to left to end the game. A game earlier, Joliet won 2-1, getting on the board in the first inning, thanks to a solo home run by Adam Giacalone against River City starter Dane Stone, who had allowed only one earned run in 23 innings pitched prior to Saturday. Stone entered with a 0.39 ERA and a 3-0 record. Andrew Busby was the Joliet starter and did a nice job going through the first five innings without allowing a run. In the 6th, the Rascals got on the board on a RBI single from Saxon Butler to tied the score 1-1. River City had come in as the top hitting team in the Frontier League with a batting average of .285 and a

league-best 102 runs scored.The Slammers took back the lead in the bottom of the sixth against Stone. Moldenhauer doubled with two outs. Giacalone walked and then Grant DeBruin ripped a line single to left to drive in Moldenhauer for a 2-1 lead. Stone was lifted at the end of that sixth inning and suffered his first loss of the season. Busby earned the win, allowing just one run on five hits in seven innings of work. Zawacki started the eighth inning in relief and allowed a leadoff single toTaylor Ard. Saxon Butler then hit a sharp grounder to second baseman Jose Garcia who started a beautiful double play with a backhand glove flip of the ball to shortstop Max Casper. Josh Ludy walked and the Evan Crawford singled. So the Slammers brought in reliever Jordan Wellander who struck out Curran Redal to get out of the jam and keep the 2-1 Joliet lead. Wellander picked up the four-out save, his second of

the season, as he allowed just a two-out single in the 9th. Now 16 of the last 17 innings from the Joliet bullpen have been scoreless. In the opener, the Slammers grabbed a 4-1, thanks to a threerun first inning. Jose Garcia and Marquis Riley had back to back singles and scored Moldenhauer’s three-run homer to right field. Joliet added to that lead with an RBI single from Max Casper in the 4th inning to make it 4-0. Kody McFarland started for the Slammers and allowed just one hit through the first five innings. He then gave up back to back doubles in the 6th, with Ard’s hit making it a 4-1 Joliet lead. McFarland earned the first win by a Slammers starter this season, allowing one run on four hits with three strikeouts and three walks over seven innings of work. Chase Doremus threw a shutout inning of relief in the eighth and then Wellander came on in the ninth to earn the save.

MARY ROUNCE Rounce finished the season with 5 goals and 7 assists for Downers North. “She was a senior that was extremely skilled and versatile,” Clader said. “We moved Mary all over the field and she successfully embraced every role. She has a bright future and I’m sure she will find success playing at Michigan State next year.”

JESSICA SCHMIDT M a i n e South’s senior m i d f i e l d e r, who is off to DePaul on a soccer scholar ship, missed all but one game of the 2013 season after dislocating her kneecap, but returned to be one of the team’s leaders this season.

RACHEL SCHNEIDER Bolingbrook senior made a huge return this season after suffering a torn ACL last year. She posted eight goals and nine assists this year and was an All-Sectional selection and was All-Conference for the second time. She will play next season at Illinois Wesleyan.

-When there are problems with teachers or employers, please attempt to side with the authority unless you really disagree. Teens need to be able to accept and work with rules they don’t like. If you protect them from everyone that is slightly “mean,” your kid won’t grow up. As much as we adore our children, one of the most precious lessons we can teach them is to be high-functioning in the world. When we never allow them to suffer, they don’t develop tenacity, resiliency and the ability to fight for their optimal future. As rewarding as it is to swoop in when our kids are struggling, we don’t teach problem solving if kids don’t struggle.As good as it feels to always side with your kids when they are upset, we don’t teach them to cope with adversity when we pity them. Many kids are in school systems that try to adapt to

all sorts of differences in children’s learning styles. Most work places won’t provide this extensive support. If your child struggles now in any area, help them realize they will definitely have to work harder than others, and that business settings will not prepare special programs.
