Morris Hospital expands pulmonary rehabilitation program Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers has expanded its Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program to include a Phase 3 component for individuals who want to continue exercising after the initial 12-week session. “This is very exciting because it demonstrates our Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is producing positive results,” says Mark Decker, Manager of Cardiovascular Services at Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers. “Most of all, we are providing a much needed service for our community.” Morris Hospital launched its Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program in the spring of 2012 and initially offered a Phase 2 component only.

According to Decker, Phase 3 is referred to as the maintenance phase because it is ongoing and an excellent way to maintain the health benefits and improved quality of life achieved through Phase 2. Morris Hospital uses the same concept for its Cardiac Rehabilitation program, which also has a 12-week Phase 2 program, as well as an ongoing Phase 3 component. “Essentially, our Phase 3 program gives people with chronic breathing problems an opportunity to continue exercising and receiving education in our structured environment under the direct supervision of a respiratory therapist and registered nurse,” says Decker. “Exercise is something you

have to keep doing in order to continue to experience the benefits.That’s true for everyone, including people with chronic breathing problems.” Most of the Pulmonary Rehab participantshavechronicobstructive pulmonary disease (COPD),chronic bronchitis, emphysema, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, bronchiectasis, other types of lung disease, or they are recovering from lung surgery. People with these conditions are typically short of breath with most activities, more likely to experience respiratory infections, and admitted to the hospital more often.According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, participation in Pulmonary Rehabilitation can reduce readmissions to the hospital by 50 percent. “We have seen outstanding outcomes through our program,” says Decker.“One way we evaluate patients’ progress is by measuring the distance they can walk in 6 minutes.By the end of Phase 2,many of them are doubling the distance they were able to walk when they started our program. Plus, they’re able to complete basic household chores that they couldn’t do before because of the difficulty they had breathing.” Like Phase 2,the Phase 3 program


Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers has expanded its Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program to include a Phase 3 component for individuals who want to continue exercising after the initial 12-week session.

is tailored to each participant’s individual needs and involves the use of a treadmill, recumbent stepper, arm argometer, stationary bike, and weights.The exercises are designed to improve endurance and muscle strength so participants can improve mobility and better carry out daily activities. Phase 3 participants exercise on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Diagnostic & Rehabilitative Center of Morris Hospital located at 100 W. Gore Road in Morris.The gym is open from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

Working in conjunction with Dr. Ahmad Agha, Pulmonologist, who serves as Medical Director of Morris Hospital’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation program, a respiratory therapist and registered nurse establish an individual care plan for each participant and provide progress reports to the referring physician. A physician’s referral and yearly health assessment is required for participation in Phase 3 Pulmonary Rehabilitation.For more information, call Morris Hospital at 815-7057837.

Warehouse workers group forms sexual harassment task force Warehouse Workers for Justice on June 17 announced the formation of a Special Task Force to investigate the prevalence of sexual harassment, discrimination and abuse of women working in Southwest Suburban Chicago’s distribution and related manufacturing industries. Women make up approximately 25 percent of all warehouse workers, the group said in a release, and initial surveys suggest that a majority have experienced sexual harassment and/or discrimination at work. “It is important for businesses to realize that Will County supports a safe work environment for all residents, and expects full compliance from all employers,” said Will County Board Member Denise Winfrey, D-Joliet. Task Force member Elizabeth Nevarez, Director of The Spanish Community Center in Joliet, said in the release there is a growing problem in the industry. “A client indicated that when she reported a manager for sexual harassment the business owner said it was easier to fire her than to have to deal with the

problem,” she said. Group officials said they formed the task force due to recent events, including one where a young woman working at Partners Warehouse in Elwood were arrested for filing a false police report after they reported being assaulted by her supervisor to the police. WWJ -- which describes itself as a Chicago-area workers center working to win good, living wage jobs in the distribution industry -- assisted the workers in a winning campaign to drop the charges against the workers and win a settlement from the company. The campaign led more women from local warehouses to come forward to report sexual harassment and discrimination. To prevent this from ever happening again, according to the release, WWJ has brought together elected officials from the Joliet City Council and the Will County Board with local community organizations to form the Will County Task Force on Sexual Harassment and Gender Discrimination to investigate this problem, educate

workers and employers on the relevant laws and issue concrete recommendations to end the abuse of women at work. “We are undertaking this investigation because women should not be fearful in their workplace about losing their job because they do not give in to abuses of supervisors or coworkers” said Will County Board Member Tom Weigel, R-New Lenox. In addition to Winfrey and Weigel, Task Force members include Joliet councilmen Terry Morris and Jim McFarland, Charlotte Droogan of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Joliet, Elizabeth Nevarez, Executive Director of the Spanish Center of Joliet, and Cindy Marble, Organizer, Warehouse Workers for Justice. The Task Force will launch a series of fact-finding sessions to investigate the extent of sexual harassment, discrimination and abuse of women working in warehouses and related manufacturing. The first session will be held at 6:30 p.m. July 10 at The Spanish Center, 309 N. Eastern Ave., Joliet.

If Tears Could Build a Stairway

If tears could build a stairway, And memories were a lane, We would walk right up to heaven, And bring you back again, No farewell words

were spoken, No time to say goodbye,You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why, Our hearts still ache in sadness, And secret tears still flow, What it meant to lose you, No one will ever know, But know we know you want us,To mourn for you no more,To remember all the happy times, Life still has much in store, Since you’ll never be forgotten, We pledge to you today, A hallowed place within our hearts. Is where you’ll always stay. — Anonymous

Among officials attending the dedication were Joliet councilmen Terry Morris and Larry Hug, Collins Street Neighborhood President Amy Sanchez, Mexican American Coalition of Will County Chairman Richard Rodriguez, Joe Bellman former MexicanAmerican Coalition President, Joliet Park District President Brett Gould, Commissioner Glen Marcum and former Commissioner Bernie Gerl. “We are here today because giving back to the communities where we live and work as well as supporting projects which help improve the environment and our quality of life are top priorities for us,” said Midwest Generation Station Director

Bill Naglosky. “We do that by continuously improving safe, reliable and environmentally responsible operations at our plant, and by supporting projects like these that provide more green space in our community.” The park project was identified as a need by the Collins Street Neighborhood Organization, a nonprofit agency of community volunteers focusing on issues of development -- including housing, transportation, retail, industrial development and land use and human capital -- in the underprivileged neighborhood of east Joliet. Collins Street Neighborhood Organization expressed the need to the Joliet Park District, which approved the development of the baseball field. This approval allowed Collins Street to raise the financial support required for the project. Midwest Generation was one of three sponsors in Joliet to help make the field a reality. “Midwest Generation’s generosity has helped put a smile on the faces of children and families in the Collins Street area; encouraging them to be active and engaged. “A baseball field is just one step in the right direction in improving lives of youth and families,” said Sanchez.

Hannon heads all-area team By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

For the past few seasons, the Minooka boys volleyball team has grown into a perennial state power house. And for the past two seasons, setter Phil Hannon has been the person making the team go. This season, Hannon posted 881 assists to help lead Minooka to a 36-3 record. The Indians lost only twice to Illinois teams, both coming to state runner-up Lincoln-Way North. “It was a lot of fun,” Hannon said. “I have never had a team with so many hitting options. After my junior year, I was wondering who would be my main option and it turned out there was no main option.I could spread it around depending on who was on and where I was on the court. It made it a lot easier for me to play. Most people think the setter doesn’t get too excited when the ball goes down and they think the hitters get all the excitement, but when I see a ball go down, I know I was a part of that.” For his efforts, Hannon is the 2013 Voyager Media Boys

Volleyball Player of the Year. “I wasn’t expecting to be recognized too much because I am just the setter on a team with these massive hitters everyone is talking about,” Hannon said. “But, I guess it feels pretty good to be the leader of that and be recognized for it. Other coaches would tell me and tell our coach they didn’t know how we would be without a good setter, so I guess I am almost compared to the quarterback. I just feed the other players and hope they do what they can with the ball.” While his main duties were as the setter, Hannon took pride on being a multi-dimensional player, adding to the team defense when he could. This season, he posted 50 digs and 69 blocks, the third-best block total on the team. “Since I had all the options, I didn’t have to make my sets exactly perfect. Because of that, I could focus on defense and helping the team there,” Hannon said.“My defense lacked the last two years and I worked hard on that. When I got a block, it felt great. A lot of teams would See ALL-AREA, page 12

Sports ALL-AREA Continued from page 11 overpass and not expect a 5-11, 6-foot setter to jump up and block them. It was so much fun blocking kids that were way bigger than me.” While the Indians are losing a lot of offensive firepower from this year’s team, coach Janel Grzetich said it will be tough to replace a setter like Hannon. “It will be extremely difficult to replace him,” she said. “Not only does the setter have to have unbelievable hands, but has to be able to read blockers and make a split-second decision if a pass is slightly off, which hitter do I go to in which rotation. It is very difficult and he makes it look easy.” Hannon will attend Southern Illinois University-Carbondale next season and will play volleyball for the club team, but not for the university team, instead focusing on his education. He plans to major in aviation or music. “If I was a full-time athlete and a full-time student, I don’t know how I would be in school,” he said. The rest of the members on the Voyager Media AllArea team are:

DOUG AREMKA Plainfield North junior totaled 168 kills and 73 blocks, with a hitting percentage of .460. “Doug is one of the top middle players in the area,” North coach See ALL-AREA, page 13

Sports ALL-AREA Continued from page 12 Kevin Vesper said. “Sixty-one percent of the sets he received were put down as a kill, which is an incredible stat. He is also a strong leader on and off the court. His senior year should only get better.”

GILIUS BLINSTRUBAS Blinstrubas, a senior from Downers North, missed 10 matches this season due to bursitis in his foot, which flared up and caused him a lot of pain. And the Trojans definitely missed his presence. They went 19-7 with him in the lineup, and 3-7 without him. Nonetheless, Blinstrubas put down 216 kills and served at 89 percent, both team highs. He added 28 blocks, 31 aces and 104 digs. Blinstrubas will be playing collegiate volleyball at Sienna Heights (Mich.). “To be recruited no matter what level is pretty significant,” said Downers North coach Mark Wasik. “He was our go-to guy. He’s a consistent all-around player and played six rotations for us.”

DAVID DEMARCO DeMarco was the heart and soul of Downers South’s state championship club. No matter where the ball happened to be on DGS’ side of the court, DeMarco managed to get to it. DeMarco totaled 404 digs and had 17 aces. He and Nick Timreck will be teammates on the Dominican University’s fledgling volleyball team in 2014. “We wanted the ball to kind of go to David’s direction so we could dig it,” Downers South coach Kurt Steuer said. “David is a vocal and emotional guy; he learned to control that emotional aspect.They (DeMarco and Tyler Kaczmarek) just knew where each other were going to be and who was going to get the ball. He’s definitely going to be missed in the back row and the guys will miss him.”

ANDRE FLORES A senior from Plainfield East, Flores guiding the Bengals to a regional title. He finished the year with 144 kills, 97 aces, 168

digs and 174 assists. “This last offseason he worked his butt off,”Vergo said of Flores. “In the last match against Bolingbrook and tonight, he showed that he wants this. He wants to put the team on his shoulders. He is on a level on his own right now.”

ELI GELFAND Named to the CSL South All-

Conference squad, Niles West’s Gelfand appeared to have the best chemistry with the team’s setter, Jordan Moy, on the team, according to coach Drew Roche. Gelfand netted 236 kills, 33 total blocks, 60 digs and 24 aces, for the Wolves, who advanced to the regional title game. “Eli wound up being our top hitter this year, and I think he was our go-to player,” Roche said. “He probably had the best

THE BUGLE/SENTINEL JUNE 19, 2013 approach and the best swing on our team, and it shows. He has a strong jump-serve. He’s got to work on his all-around game.”

JAMES HILL A senior from Plainfield South, Hill finished the year with 189 kills. “He was instrumental in winning our first round regional game against Lockport,”


Plainfield South coach Robert Majka said. “When we needed a kill we would tell our setters to set it high and watch him jump. He has incredible vertical. He would jump so high that he would be over their blockers as he was swinging. If we would have utilized him more in certain situations we would have had a few more wins.” See ALL-AREA, page 14



Sports ALL-AREA Continued from page 13

STEVEN LENDY Notre Dame coach Patrick Cole says Lendy, a junior, is the first player he’s ever had where all-state is a definite

consideration going forward. Lendy registered team-bests in kills (286), digs (133), aces (34), and had 35 total blocks along with a .389 hitting percentage (third on the team). Lendy had 10 matches in which he posted at least 10 kills. “He’s progressing very, very rapidly,” Cole said. “He gave us a lot this year and we’re

expecting more from him next year. He’s got a work ethic that’s incredible. I’ve seen very few people motivated like he is.”

BRIAN LYMAN Joliet West junior was a standout for the Tigers, posting 351 kills, 133 digs, 60 blocks and 37 aces. “Brian is a three-year starter for us and was our go-to attacker and leader this season,” said West coach Jason Herrmann. “He lead us in kills and aces and has become a premier outside hitter in our area. As I look forward to next season I am excited to see how Brian can lead us to the next level within the SWSC Conference.”

JORDAN MOY Niles West utilized a 5-1 system, and Moy ran the show for his team. The junior piled up 764 assists with 152 digs (second on the team), and served at a 90.6 percentage with 21 aces. “He definitely took a big step up from last year,” Roche said. “He’s a good players and he’s got a lot of potential. He’s got to focus on some things that he probably never quite realized before that we tried to work (on) with him this year. Hopefully it clicks in the off-season.”

BROOKS NEVERLY The senior three-year starter was, in Downers North coach Mark Wasik’s words, “Probably one of the strongest, if not the strongest, libero I’ve ever seen. … His overall quickness, his ability to read opponents’ shots and keep rallies alive. He was probably our best and strongest player overall on the team.” Next spring, Nevrly will team up with his former Downers South rivals, Nick Timreck and David DeMarco, at Dominican University in River Grove, which is starting up a new Division III team. Nevrly had 418 digs, 24 aces and a 96.1 percent servereceive average, and added 38 assists.

MIKE O’NEILL Joliet Catholic senior posted 292 kills, 241 digs and 34 See ALL-AREA, page 15

Sports ALL-AREA Continued from page 14 blocks this season for a Hilltopper team that advanced to the finals of the JolietWest Regional.

JORDAN PAWLICKI Pawlicki, a junior, came into his own this season for the state champion Mustangs. Pawlicki amassed an eye-popping 930 assists, and added 226 digs and 30 aces. “He took our offense and led it,” Steuer said. “He’s an athletic kid that gets to a lot of balls. He just made good decisions, ran our offense through our middles and could find the hot hitters, too. He’s just a smart setter. He takes a look at matchups throughout the game and makes his decisions.”

MITCH PERNIAR Minooka junior showed what he could do this season, helping Minooka post a 36-3 record. He posted 231 kills, 75 blocks

and had 27 aces. “He was an excellent right-side hitter and put up a strong block against other outside hitters,” said Minooka coach Janel Grzetich. “As a left-handed hitter, his hard cross-court and line shots were difficult for opponents to block.”

TOM POZNANSKY Poznanski, a senior from Plainfield Central, finished the season with 238 kills, 26 aces, 126 digs and 57 blocks. “Tom was a leader for our team on and off the court,” Plainfield Central coach Jessica Clark said. “He is an amazing competitor, and takes the game very seriously. He approaches the game with great focus and worked all season to be better each day.”

MATT SVETLECICH He posted a team-best 299 kills for the state-qualifying Minooka Indians. He added 75

blocks and 37 aces. “He was a consistently strong hitter for us this year and he had an extremely good court Grzetich.




NICK TIMRECK When Timreck got on a roll, he was virtually unstoppable, as Lincoln-Way North learned the hard way during the state championship match for Downers South. The 6-foot-6 senior banged down 235 kills and had 72 blocks and 61 digs. “Everybody knew who he was around the area and the state,” Steuer said. “He’s a smart player in terms of shots, using tips and roll shots to put the ball where nobody was. He loves to get those big kills and it fires him up. He wants to celebrate with his teammates (after a kill); he thrives upon doing that. He just wanted it more and more and more each time.”

MAALIK WALKER One of the more powerful

players in the area, Walker posted 177 kills and a team-best 135 blocks for Minooka. Walker will play next season on McKendree University’s inaugural men’s volleyball team. “He was a very powerful hitter and his leadership on the court was outstanding,” Grzetich said.

NATE WOLF Wolf, an all-CSL South pick from Maine South, has grown not only in height—he was 5-8 his freshman year; now he’s 6-8—but more important, he’s grown on the volleyball court. The Ball State recruit passed up his senior year on the basketball team, deciding to devote all his energies to volleyball. It paid off as he led Hawks, who advanced to sectionals, in kills (251) and passing percentage (2.42 on a 3-point scale) to go along with 142 digs,14 solo blocks and 26 block-assists (second on the team), and 24 aces. “The difference between last year and this year are tremendous,” said Maine South coach Gary Granell. “He came in


at 6-8 this year and not only was he bigger, but he was better.”

SAWYER YEAZEL The Benet senior, named ESCC Player of the Year this spring, was a three-year starter for the Redwings. He was second on the club with 173 kills and 138 digs, led the team with 32 aces and had 22 blocks with a 2.4 passing percentage on a 3-point scale. “He’s an outstanding all-around player, and definitely one of our go-to guys,” Benet coach Amy Van Eekeren said. Scott Taylor and Mike Sandrolini also contributed




Porters’ end season in final eight By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Heading into the June 3 Crestwood Supersectional match-up between Lockport and Mt. Carmel, it was thought that the winner of that game would be the favorite to win the Class 4A state baseball title. Heading into the contest, Prep Baseball Report had the Porters ranked No. 2 in the state, while the Caravan was No. 1.

The predictions held true, as Mt. Carmel edged Lockport (328) at Standard Bank Stadium 2-1 and did indeed go on to claim the state title (2-1 over Libertyville). “There is nothing to hang our heads for,” said Lockport coach Andy Satunas. “We went 32-8 and made it to the final eight in the state and we battled to the end with (the eventual state champion.) I am very, very proud of the guys.” The Caravan struck first, scoring in the first inning. Lockport would time the game in the second when Jeff Pattison’s doubled and scored on a Thomas Smith single to

right field. The play of the game happened in the third inning when Mt. Carmel’s Beau Filkins singled and was sacrificed to second base. Filkins took off for third on a Josh Stowers grounder to third baseman Doug Matthews. Matthews lunged to tag Filkins and then tried to double up Stowers at first.While Filkins appeared to leave the designated baseline while avoiding the tag, the umpire ruled he was not and both runners were safe. Filkins scored what would be the game-winning run moments later on a double down the line by Oregon recruit Jerry

Houston. “We had our opportunities,” Satunas said. “The game is not won or lost on that one play. We had a couple guys on but we weren’t able string a few hits together and in a big game you have to be able to do that.” Senior Evan Martens allowed only five hits in the game, while striking out 10. “He is one of the best pitchers in the state, hands down,” Satunas said. “I don’t care what miles per hour or this or that, he has it inside him. He is a warrior. When he gets his curve ball over, good luck to the other team.” Like Martens, several of the key players from the Porters’

senior-dominated team will graduate and for Satunas, this class was a little more special. Now in his fourth year running the Lockport program, this is the first group of seniors that Satunas has had for all four years in the program. “This is a special group,” he said. “We spent a lot of time together. I am going to miss these young men. They really grew a lot as baseball players and as men. I am excited for them in college. I think they are going to do big things in college, whether it is on the baseball field or in the classroom because they are great kids.” Follow Mark @2Mark_My_Words



Nascar remembers Jason Leffler By David Caraviello

The NASCAR community was left stunned Wednesday night by the news that driver Jason Leffler had been killed in an accident during a sprint-car race in New Jersey. Leffler, 37, died in a crash at Bridgeport Speedway, a fiveeighths mile high-banked dirt track in Swedesboro, N.J. He was pronounced dead shortly after 9 p.m. Eastern time, according to the Associated Press. RETURN TO DIRT-RACING ROOTS EXCITED LEFFLER A native of Long Beach, Calif., Leffler has been a fixture at NASCAR’s national level since

1999.The two-time winner on the NASCAR Nationwide Series leaves behind a young son, Charlie. “NASCAR extends its thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies to the family of Jason Leffler who passed away earlier this evening,” NASCAR said in statement. “For more than a decade, Jason was a fierce competitor in our sport and he will be missed.” According to local news reports from the area, Leffler had to be extricated from his vehicle and was taken by ambulance to a local trauma center, where he later died from his injuries. Bridgeport Speedway immediately suspended racing for the rest of the night after the accident occurred.

Jason Leffler signs autographs for fans before a Nationwide race in 2011. Leffler, 37, died last week after an accident during a sprintcar race in New Jersey.

“I’m completely devastated to hear about Jason Leffler. It doesn’t seem real. Pray for his family tonight,” Nationwide Series driver Trevor Bayne wrote on Twitter, echoing the sentiments of many who knew the well-liked former U.S.Auto Club champion. “Sitting here in disbelief,” veteran NASCAR driver Elliott Sadler wrote on Twitter.“All I can think about is Charlie. Prayers to

his little boy.” Leffler made his first NASCAR start this season in Sunday’s Sprint Cup Series event at Pocono Raceway, where he finished 43rd. Although he competed at NASCAR’s top level for both Joe Gibbs Racing and Chip Ganassi, his best years came on the Nationwide tour, where he finished inside the top 10 in points five times. He won

Nationwide races for owners Gene Haas and Todd Braun, and also won a Camping World Truck Series event in 2003 for Jim Smith. But Leffler’s roots were in the USAC ranks, where he won three midget titles to go along with a silver crown championship. He returned to those roots this season, competing most of the year in a winged sprint car.


BIFFLE WINS FORD’S 1,000th RACE Greg Biffle feels right at home at Michigan International Speedway. He took the lead for good on a late restart and ran away from the field in the closing laps to win Sunday’s Quicken Loans 400. The No. 16 Ford driver won his second straight race here and the 19th of his career. Four of those victories have come at MIS. “It’s definitely a special day,” Biffle said after delivering Ford Motor Co. its 1,000th victory in NASCAR’s three national touring series. “Just super-excited for Ford and sure excited to be No. 1,000.” The win secured Biffle a berth in the 2014 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race and moved him up a spot to eighth in the standings. Second a week ago at Pocono, Biffle led the pack to the restart on lap 173 and outran Martin Truex Jr. to stay out front. He led a race-best 48 laps. Owner Jack Roush’s operations center is in suburban Detroit and he considers MIS his home track. He was beaming almost as broadly as his driver. “We expect to be at our best when we come to MIS and I am glad we could pull it off,” Roush said. “I was a little nervous for a minute there, but I am glad it worked out and glad we could give Ford its 1,000th win.”

Business & Real Estate


Helping workers understand meaning of no Q. I have an employee that treats “no” as little more than a speed bump. He just goes faster and pretends I didn’t say anything. Also, if I give him an inch on any policy, he figures the policy doesn’t even apply. I have had repeated conversations where I point out the rules; he smiles and then does what he damn pleases. How do I get him to toe the line? A. You are facing a typical managerial frustration. Most people don’t like the word “no.” You will get your employee to toe the line when you stop talking and simply make it extremely painful to speed up as he cruises by posted limits. The first time we learn to dislike the word “no” is when we are about 18 months old. The reason we have dubbed this developmental phase the Terrible Twos is because parents generally are put through heck by their clever, stubborn toddler. Unfortunately, the workplace is full of people whose parents never really figured out how to

make them respect the word “no.” One of the best resources for effective management, ironically, is parenting books. Most problems you’ll run into as a manager are unresolved issues the parents of your employees didn’t handle well. There are three styles of parenting, and managers often use only one of them.The first style is autocratic (You do what I say or I’ll spank you!), the second is permissive (Isn’t it cute you’re setting the cat’s tail on fire?), and the last is authoritative (I listen and understand but I have the final say). Most of your employees were either parenting with autocratic parents (which makes people sneaky) or permissive parents (which makes people narcissistic). The employees that were parenting with a balance of limits and consequences will never be your problem “children.” Your specific employee clearly had parents of the permissive sort. He expects you’ll talk and talk and talk, and he can do whatever the heck he wants. If you want his

respect, you need to stop talking and start acting. Set up a private meeting and let him know you want to continue to have him on your team.Then hand him a list of behaviors that aren’t working with a list of concrete consequences that will occur next time he does one of these behaviors. Classic consequences can include a day of suspension, being barred from participating in important events, and even ultimately losing his job. Remember throughout your conversations that these consequences are his choice! Make it clear to him that you respect whatever decisions he makes regarding his new knowledge about behavior and consequences. Emphasize that you know he will let you know whether there is a match between what this job requires and what he is willing to do.Then let the chips fall. The beauty of this approach to parenting and to management is you are no longer the bad guy or gal.You have the power to determine all the boundaries and expectations, but your employee has the power to keep or lose the job.

Next time your employee cruises past an office speed bump, the only one who will get hurt is him.As I have often told my kids, “Suffering is the great teacher of youth!”Take yourself out of the cycle of useless arguments. Let your employee suffer and decide whether he is ready to grow up.

Last word(s) Q. I feel insecure all the time at my office. I try to read between the lines, read body language and guess at what people think of my work, but I don’t know if I’m right. Is there any surefire way to know what people think of my work? A. Yes, ask! Making up information without concrete data makes all human beings feel insecure.

The Bugle/Enterprise/Sentinel newspapers were big winners during the Illinois Press Association’s 2013 Convention on June 13 and 14 in Springfield, winning a slew of advertising and editorial awards. Voyager Media Publications Advertising Manager Patrick Ryan took home the 2012 Advertising Sales Manager of the Year award for his work selling display ads and managing the Voyager sales staff. “It was a great honor to win the award,” Ryan said.“It’s more than an individual award; it’s a team award.
