VALLEY VIEW SCHOOL DISTRICT

BHS finds new Asst. Director of Student Services Amanda Wilmer looks to keep tradition going BY RYAN OSTRY Bugle Staff

@RyanOstry_BR18 rostry@buglenewspapers.com The Valley View School District has officially found its new leader in Amanda Wilmer. Wilmer, who will take over the new position as the Assistant Director of Student Services at Bolingbrook High School, said that this is a dream come

true for her, and she can’t wait to get started. “I’m extremely excited to start working at Bolingbrook [High School],” Wilmer said. “I can’t wait to actually get started and continue working towards the great tradition they have put together over the years.” Previously, before accepting the new job at Bolingbrook High School, Wilmer worked at the local Jane Addams Middle School for 13 years. Wilmer began her teaching career in 2003 at Jane Addams as a teacher

for all subjects. For the past six years, Wilmer has co-taught sixth grade math as well. In addition to her teaching, she has served as a mentor to new teachers at Jane Addams and a student council sponsor. “BHS is where my students go after they graduate from Jane Addams,” Wilmer said. “The staff has just been really welcoming and I’m thrilled to be able to get a chance to work with that team over there.” Wilmer earned her Bachelor of

Science Degree in Special Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2003, followed by a Master of the Arts Degree in Early Childhood Special Education from Northern Illinois University in 2007. She also earned a second Master of Arts degree in School Leadership from Concordia University in River Forest in 2019. Wilmer said that she is married with two daughters, Anna and Molly, and she enjoys doing normal things just as reading and playing board games in

her spare time. Throughout the entire application process that Wilmer went through, she said that even though it was tough, she was glad it all paid off in the end. It started with a online application, followed by a screening and ended with face-to-face interviews including with the Superintendent where she was then offered the position. Continuing the success of the VVSD is something Wilmer said she wants to do, while letting people know what she will being to the table. “I think it’s really important to work with the teachers and the staff to see what is currently working well right now and things that they will want to continue with the school,” Wilmer said. “I know there’s a lot of collaboration, good programs and it’s really important for me to get feedback from the staff, teachers and students. “I’m really enthusiastic about working with students that have special needs and disabilities, so working and collaborating with teachers to know that our students are reaching their full capabilities is something I’m definitely looking forward to getting started on.”

WBCA announced 2018-19 team honor roll The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) officially announced the 2018-19 WBCA Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll on July 23. Lewis’ women’s basketball team was one of 25 Division II teams honored as it finished the 2018-19 academic year with a 3.55 gradepoint-average. The WBCA Academic Top 25 recognizes NCAA Division I, II and III, NAIA and two-year GPAs inclusive of all student-athletes on their rosters for the entire season. The 201819 season is the 24th in which the WBCA has compiled the honor rolls. “The WBCA is pleased to recognize those women’s basketball pro-

Congratulations!” “We are so proud of this group for their work not only on the court but more importantly in the classroom,” Lewis head women’s basketball coach Samantha Quigley Smith said. “Adversity occurs academically as well and working through that shows the resiliency of this group. “To be ranked in the top 25 athletically and academically is certainly

not easy and they put in the work to make that happen.” The Flyers closed the 2018-19 season with an overall record of 27-5, made the programs seventh straight trip to the NCAA Tournament and 14th overall. Lewis tips off the 201819 campaign on Saturday, November 9th hosting Michigan Tech in the GLVC/GLIAC Challenge at Neil Carey Arena. • The Lewis University women’s track and field team had six studentathletes earn U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Academic honors while the team netted USTFCCCA All-Academic Team accolades.

Joelle Ataessien (Chicago, Ill./ Whitney Young HS), Kianna Clark (Lake in the Hills, Ill./Crystal Lake South), Allison Heinzer (Sugar Grove, Ill./Kaneland HS), Jada Hoffman (Chicago, Ill./Kenwood Academy), Carrie Johnson (Crystal Lake, Ill./Crystal Lake HS) and Lane Kadlec (Lockport, Ill./Lockport) earned All-Academic honors from the USTFCCCA. A total of 448 women earned USTFCCCA All-Academic honors during the 2018-19 track and field seasons. To qualify for USTFCCCA AllAcademic honors, student-athletes must have compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and have reached a

provisional or automatic qualifying standard for the NCAA Championships in either the indoor or outdoor seasons. “Our athletes work extremely hard all year long on the track, and to also put in the work in the classroom to achieve at this level academically really shows their character,” Lewis head women’s track and field coach Dana Schwarting said. “We are definitely building student-athletes at Lewis University.” As a team, the Flyers finished the year with a cumulative GPA of 3.30 and were one of 130 women’s teams to be honored for their academic performance by the USTFCCCA.

Lockport library hosts annual Comicopolis event Hundreds of comic book and graphic novel fans flood Lockport Library for six-hour event BY RYAN OSTRY Bugle Staff

@RyanOstry_BR18 rostry@buglenewspapers.com The fifth annual Comicopolis event officially took place at the White Oak Library District’s Lockport branch this past Saturday. With a crowd that almost doubled in size from last year to the 1,925 fans who showed up this year, Lockport branch manager Patrica Jarog said this is an event people travel to from all over the country. “Comics and graphic novels are important for libraries because they tell some of our most iconic stories,” Jarog said. “It’s like who doesn’t know the story of Superman or Wonder woman? So it really fits in for us to be a collaborative anchor in this community.” At this year’s event, fans had a lot in store for them. Cheryl Sleboda, doing a demo on how to put costumes together, a motion capture actor Lorissa Ju-

lianus (mortal combat), who talked about what it is like to work on video games, Gene Ha, who is a comics artist and writer and School of Rock, a local teenage band were all in attendance. “Every year it’s gotten a little bit bigger and there’s been more attractions for the fans that come to it,” said White Oak Library District Director Scott Pointon. “We wanted to plant the flag in the southwest suburbs here by making this event as big as we would for everyone to see.” Another much anticipated activity was the drawing for someone to ride in a replica of the “Back to the Future” DeLorean time machine car. “A lot of people obviously put their names in for the drawing,” Jarog said. “It’s pretty cool that they will get to ride around town in the famous car, that’s not something that gets to happen every day.” Followed by the drawing, the

With a crowd that almost doubled in size from last year to the 1,925 fans who showed up this year, Lockport branch manager Patrica Jarog said this is an event people travel to from all over the country. Lockport community music band named “Limestone Stage” put on a premier “In a Fortnite”, which ran on the main stage as well as an improve skit. “Limestone has been around for a long time and they are a great

community group we have here in Lockport,” Jarog said. “The man who wrote the script for ‘In a Fortnite’ is actually a trustee here at the library as well so it’s really neat.” The final part of the six-hour event was one of the most antici-

pated events out of them all, the costume contest. “Having a staff of around 90 people and then close to 40 executing the event is truly amazing how everyone has come together,” Pointon said. “With all of the costumes, the venues and the overall collaboration, it made the day pretty special.” Spiderman, Wolverine, Deadpool, Batman and Ironman among others were just some of the many costumes that showed up to Comicopolis. Five categories were chosen from to decipher the age group for each winner including general adult, general teen, general kids, adult handmade and a juvenile hand made. “So many of these fantastic costumes are handmade which makes them even that more impressive I think,” Jarog said. “We’re also giving out $50 gift cards to every winner plus to a store in Lockport, a memento for the winner that will proclaim they won from Comicopolis which is pretty cool for our community to see the hard work they did in putting together the costume.

Fun Zone. “We made a serious effort to offer more to families,” said O’Keeffe. The Family Fun Zone presented by the Escape hOUR Room is offering face painting and temporary tattoes, a Promenade-wide Treasure Hunt, interactive demonstrations from Bolingbrook youth athletic groups, and of course local community groups performing on the stage. So much more is in the works according to O’Keeffe including a quiet zone. “We are grateful that our main partner The Promenade-Boling-

brook sees the value in this event; if it weren’t for their support none of this would be possible let alone the ability to grow it and offer more to the community.” The Promenade-Bolingbrook is also highlighting its LIVE 360 initiative with interactive offerings throughout the day: dance classes, makery classes, to name a few will be offered to all ages. “Throughout the day there will also be entertainment on the street from magician to a drum line the energy will be amazing,” said O’Keeffe.

To kick off the day, 95.9 The River is broadcasting from Sandburg Way from noon-2 p.m.; then Star 96.7 hits the air live from 3-5 p.m. There is the Main Stage with Dan Bonamucci performing at 1 p.m., One More Time at 4 p.m. and Hey Jimmy at 7 p.m. The Community Stage is the site for local talent such as Wolf Pack Drumline, Kinetic Dance Company and the Bolingbrook High School Jazz Band.

Magician Christopher George will be doing some street magic as well as a show near the Main Stage at 6 p.m. Taste organizers note that they are adding more entertainment until just before the Taste of Bolingbrook opens.

ONE MORE TIME OMT plays a variety of music from rock to

indie to country; from classic to current. Their approach is simple: choose great works and try to play them in their own style. They continue to be a local favorite delivering a steady diet of intense improvisations. OMT is comprised of founding member and multi-talented drummer vocalist Bobby Carroll, local Naperville talent Dick Kuhn on guitar and vocals, Mike Aquino, nationally renowned guitarist with a music degree from Roosevelt College, world class guitarist Dave Benziger on guitar and vocals and professional bassist Jason Trtan, a graduate of Boston’s Berklee College of Music. OMT regularly appears at local venues like Frankie’s Blue Room in Naperville and in some of the area’s most popular music festivals such as Naperville’s “Rib Fest” and “Last Fling” events..

HEY JIMMY Since 2008, Hey Jimmy has been the premier party dance band based out of Chicago. Although they call Chicago home that has not kept them from entertaining the nation - - with performances at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Boston, Austin, Kansas City, Dallas, Denver, Orlando, and soon to be overseas. Hey Jimmy’s goal is not to be the busiest band around. They simply want to be the best band around. Quality is the goal. They have achieved that for nearly ten years now and showing no sign of slowing down.

COLUMN >> DAVE SAYS

Fun money is fine, but pay obligations first Sit down with your husband, and explain how important it is that you guys start making better decisions with your money DEAR DAVE: I had about $12,000 in debt when my husband and I got married three years ago. Since that time, we’ve been given cash gifts from my parents from time to time, and we keep having discussions on how to use this kind of money when it is given to us. I’d like to put it toward paying off debt, but he would rather treat it as fun money. What are your thoughts on this, please?

— SARA DEAR SARA: If there’s something you need,

and you agree on it together and choose to buy it as a couple, that’s cool. I’ve got no problem with that. But you guys are still just starting out, and you’ve got debts to pay. I’m sure your husband has a good heart, but I think it’s time for him to grow up a little and realize the importance of getting your financial house in order. Did your parents have specific and reasonable thoughts on how they’d like you to use the money? If so, you should honor their intent. If not, then how it gets used is pretty

much up to you guys. But in your situation, life’s not a birthday party when this kind of thing happens. You should be making mature, responsible decisions together regarding any money that comes into your household. It’s really no different than a paycheck. You take care of obligations and other important

things first. Adults waste money on play things and fun stuff just because it was handed to them by mom and dad. That’s how a 10-year-old behaves. Sit down with your husband, and explain how important it is that you guys start making better decisions with your money. If you two start working together, you could knock out this debt in a hurry!

Gov. signs new law giving residents relief from high interest on consumer debt Consumer Fairness Act Lowers Post-Judgment Interest Rate from 9% to 5%, Reduces Collection Timeframe by 9 Years Chicago - Surrounded by consumer advocates at Chicago Volunteer Legal Services, Governor JB Pritzker signed the bipartisan Consumer Fairness Act into law Monday, giving millions of Illinoisans relief from high interest on consumer debt. “Consumer debt is at an all-time high all across the United States, and there are millions of people, including too many Illinois families, who are struggling under unconscionable circumstances,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “Today, here in Illinois, we are giving real relief to those who are simply trying to pay off their debts, so they can end the cycle of debt they are trapped in.” With one in three Illinois residents in the debt collection process according to the Heartland Alliance, the new law takes two steps to protect Illinois residents from crushing debt. Helping families avoid the cycle of debt that prevents them from build-

ing long-term financial security, the new law lowers post-judgment interest rates on consumer debt under $25,000 from 9% to 5%. It also reduces the timeframe to collect on a judgment from 26 to 17 years by limiting revivals, preventing debt collectors from trapping families in debt with judgments that are decades old. HB 88 was passed unanimously without opposition from debt collectors and other financial institutions. The new law takes effect January 1, 2020. “Debt can be a real, crushing thing that keeps people trapped in a cycle of poverty,” said Assistant Senate Majority Leader Iris Martinez. “By making it easier for people to make payments, we are not only making it more likely for the debt to be paid but also helping people move toward financial independence.” “Millions of Illinoisans struggle with consumer debt, and our laws have allowed far too many of them to get trapped in an endless cycle of collections,” said Rep. Will Guzzardi. “Today, we’re putting reasonable limits on debt collection to protect people from predation and help them get back on their feet. HB 88 is a significant reform for justice and fairness in our state, and I’m honored to have been a part of its passage.”
