Business After Hours Sponsored by: Associated Bank held a great Business After Hours November 2nd. Members enjoyed visiting with other members and bank associates, and enjoyed a nice appetizer and beverage selection. Associated Bank, as we know it today, is the result of many mergers and acquisitions. The roots of their founding banks run deep in many communities, including Belleville and the surrounding cities. The founding of Associated Bank dates to 1970, when three strong banks in Northeast Wisconsin formed a powerful alliance. Another key event in Associated Banks history was the merger of First Financial and Associated Bank in 1997. Associated Bank has eight locations in the metro east area with seven in Illinois and one in Missouri.

Spotlight on Education | Zion Lutheran School We Proclaim Jesus
The mission of Zion Lutheran Church is to proclaim Jesus today and forever. One of the ways the church accomplishes Christâ€™s mission of proclamation is through the ministry of Zion Lutheran School. This school year, our staff is proclaiming the words and life of Jesus to 300 students and their families with the everlasting hope and prayer that they would come to know Him as their personal Lord and Savior today and forever. Like many other schools in our community, we have professional, innovative educators and support personnel who are committed to providing our students with a strong academic foundation and abundant opportunities for growth in service, the arts, and athletics. Our classrooms are equipped with the latest technologies to train our preschool through 8th grade students for success in the world. But what sets Zion Lutheran School apart from many others is the presence of Jesus Christ. We hear it in the voices of our students as they worship and our teachers as they instruct, correct, and pray for our students and families. We see it in our students as they support and teach one another within their Faith Families and in our teachers and staff as they selflessly give of their time, talents, and energy. We feel the presence of Jesus as we think of our supporting congregation, Zion Lutheran Church, and the resources they provide us with so that we can continue to carry out the work He has called us to do.

Chamber Member Update LINDENWOOD BELLEVILLE’S BRADLEY HONORED FOR ROLE AS CIVIL RIGHTS PIONEER IN 1960S MEMPHIS Lindenwood University-Bellevilles’s Donna Bradley has been named the outstanding alumna of the year by St. Mary’s Episcopal School in Memphis, Tenn., where she attended middle school and high school. “It was a total surprise, but I feel so honored,” said Bradley. “They recently asked me to come speak there, and that was such a wonderful experience. Now, this. It really warms my heart.” Bradley is an accomplished attorney and educator, currently serving as program director of the criminal justice program in Lindenwood Belleville’s Accelerated Degree Program. But, she is also an important part of the history of St. Mary’s Episcopal School. She was the first African-American student to attend the previously all-white school in a city torn by racial strife. “Donna’s story is truly one that exemplifies the qualities for which we look from our outstanding alumnae: service, courage, compassion, and leadership,” St. Mary’s stated in its announcement of Bradley’s honor. Bradley, whose mother, Lorene Osborne, was an active civil rights leader in the Memphis area, decided to enroll the then 12-year-old girl, at the all-white school in 1969, just a year after iconic civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered in the city. “I didn’t realize at the time that I was being sent to the school to integrate it,” said Bradley. “But I did realize when I got there that I didn’t fit in. I knew I had the only black face at the school, and it was certainly very uncomfortable for a while.” At the time, Bradley said all-white private schools popped up all over the country–but especially in the south–to give parents who didn’t believe in integration a place to send their children for an education where they wouldn’t have to share their classrooms with blacks. St. Mary’s was in a well-to-do area of Memphis where Bradley differed from her classmates not only because of the color of her skin, but also because of a difference in socio-economic class. “We were a middle class family and we did alright,” Bradley said. “My mother worked as a teacher and my dad worked at the post office. Suddenly I was going to school at a place where the only black people the other kids knew were their butlers and maids. I remember that I found it odd to hear white children address their household help–adults–by their first name.” While it may seem risky to send your child to fight a civil rights battle, Bradley said equality was a principle her mother believed needed to be fought for on all fronts. “It was tough,” Bradley allowed. “But mama was so active in civil rights. She used to take me to the picket lines with her and put her sign on my baby carriage while she pushed it around. She was so tough. If a door said ‘whites only,’ that was the door she was going to use. Daddy always had a bail fund for her, because she was willing to get arrested if that’s what it took.” By the time Bradley, then known by her maiden name of Donna Osborne, realized the gravity of her role in integrating the school, she was a sophomore. By then, a few more black faces joined her in the crowd. Today, about 30 percent of the student body at St. Mary’s is made up of minority students. Bradley’s peers, the graduating class of 1974, nominated her for the alumna of the year honor. “When I spoke there, it was so rewarding to see black faces looking back at me from the audience,” Bradley said. “I’m really glad that I was a St. Mary’s girl.” .........................................................................................................................................................................................................

HOLLAND CONSTRUCTION’S FRED DINTELMAN RETIRES Known as Mentor, Relationship Builder Trenton, Ill. resident Fred Dintelman is embarking on a new chapter in his life following his retirement Nov. 3 from Holland Construction Services (Holland) in Swansea. Dintelman worked since 2005 as a senior project manager for Holland. A former teacher, baseball coach, basketball coach, and college baseball champion, Dintelman’s career path that led him to the construction industry was less conventional than most. Working summers as a residential carpenter for his uncle during Dintelman’s college years provided the young Western Illinois University student with his initial construction experience. Education, however, was Dintelman’s academic pursuit. While earning a bachelor’s degree in education at Western, he also excelled in baseball, achieving two career batting records and American Legion Baseball Player of the Year in 1968. Dintelman also earned a master’s degree in athletic administration, initially seeking work as an athletic director or work for a professional sports team. Although his passion for education was clear, state and district budget cutbacks influenced Dintelman’s decision to ask his uncle for another opportunity as a union carpenter. But by the mid-1980s, the economic recession caused a slowdown in construction; Dintelman heeded his uncle’s advice and sought other work. This time, however, he remained in the construction industry. In 2005, Holland recruited Dintelman. But his path had crossed with several Holland employees years earlier, including that of Mike Marchal, current president at Holland. Marchal remembers meeting Dintelman for the first time through their high school‐aged children who were both involved in theater. “In the late 1990s, my wife was the theater director at what was then Wesclin Senior High School in O’Fallon (Ill.),” said Marchal. “Fred hosted the cast party at his home. I was a brand‐ new project manager at Holland but already knew of Fred because he had a great reputation in construction and in the community. I was feeling intimidated about meeting him that night, but when I walked in the door, I immediately realized I was in the presence of a very likable gentleman. Words I associate with Fred are integrity, a can-do attitude, humility and a true family man.” Dintelman said he is looking forward to spending a lot more time with his wife and their six grandchildren, and also having the time to enjoy traveling and golf. Marchal said it will be difficult to adjust to an empty office two doors to the right – the very one Dintelman occupied for 12 years. “The legacy of what Fred leaves behind includes servant leadership and a whole lot of mentoring those around him. Fred’s unwavering work ethic could regularly be seen when putting his head down and working hard, whether it was during the week or weekends, to meet a project deadline. He never hesitated to take time to mentor our people. Even during the final weeks of his career, it was really neat to watch Fred taking younger colleagues under his wing to ensure that their transition in serving clients and projects transpired as smoothly as possible. Fred truly is a friend to all of us. He’s irreplaceable.” ..............................................................................................................................................................................................................

LINDENWOOD BELLEVILLE’S INAUGURAL LYNX IN THE COMMUNITY EVENT BEAUTIFIES BELLEVILLE Nearly 90 Lindenwood University-Belleville students and staff members gave up three hours of their weekend on Sunday, Nov. 5, to take part in the first Lynx in the Community event. “We went to four homes of senior citizens and cleaned up their property for them,” said Lindenwood Belleville Interim Dean of Students Thomas Trice. “We pulled weeds, trimmed bushes, raked leaves, and did pretty much anything else that needed to be done to get the homes of the seniors we assisted looking like they should. The difference that was made is amazing.” Students also donated their time Sunday doing work at Peterson’s Pond, a former water detention basin that local educators and City of Belleville leaders are trying to turn into an outdoor classroom and native garden. There, Lindenwood students pulled up invasive species of plants and cleared away brush and other debris in effort to return the site, located near Signal Hill School, to its natural state. Lynx in the Community is a service initiative created by Lindenwood Belleville to have a positive impact on metro east neighborhoods. Lending a hand to seniors who needed a little assistance keeping up their property was a good place to start, according to Trice. The goal of the Student Development and Resource Center, which oversees the Lynx in the Community initiative, is to conduct two campus-wide service events each year. “It was great to see these students give something back to the community,” Trice said. “It was even better to see them doing so with smiles on their faces.

Chamber Member Update HOLLAND’S PRE-CONSTRUCTION PLANNING EXPEDITES CLIENT-OWNER’S PROJECT
Combining a solid existing client relationship with pre-project coordination is saving months of time for the owner of a $53 million mixed-use construction venture that is the biggest project in the Village of Twin Oaks’ history. Swansea, Il.-based Holland Construction Services (Holland) Project Executive Doug Weber says the work Holland is performing to transform the 11-acre site of a former grocery store into a retail and apartment development has been thoroughly orchestrated from the very start, thanks to the long-time relationship Holland shares with Haley Holdings Seven LLC, the project’s owner and developer. The location is at the southeast quadrant of Big Bend Boulevard and Highway 141, on the site of a former grocery store. The project entails transforming a former Schnucks grocery store into 219 luxury apartments and adding 17,000 square feet of new retail space to 25,600 square feet of existing retail. Long before ground was broken on the project, Holland’s team carved out certain work packages to release them for bid ahead of time, saving the owner and the construction manager valuable time – and saving costs as well. The early work packages included earthwork/site utilities, mechanical/electrical/fire plumbing/fire protection, footings/foundations, structural framing, and building envelope. “Having a longstanding relationship with Haley Holdings Seven and understanding the market enabled us to focus design efforts to establish early work packages to begin construction,” Weber said. “Firming up these critical details sooner than would have been done in a traditional construction project scenario gave us nearly a four-month head start. Most importantly, this allows key pieces of the project to be designed, priced, and contracts written which ultimately reduces risk on ownership and accelerates the project schedule. Holland took many of the lessons learned from an earlier construction project – the Alinea luxury apartments at Interstate 270 and Manchester Road in Town & Country, Mo. – and applied them to the Twin Oaks project. Alinea was also a Holland partnership with developer Haley Holdings Seven. Twin Oaks broke ground in July, but much of the coordination was completed months earlier, according to Weber and to Tim Breece, spokesman for Haley Holdings Seven. “Holland Construction Services has been a great construction partner through the years,” said Breece. “Holland brings great expertise and knowledge about construction of multi‐family projects to the table. Their preconstruction efforts, including project estimating and ultimately all the elements that lead up to the construction phase, have been synchronized extremely well. We find that they’re extremely professional in their approach. We’re pleased to have Holland Construction Services on our team.” The $53 million construction project on what was known as Big Bend Square includes 4 floors of apartment units of up to three bedrooms located above one floor of ground floor retail, according to Holland. It is expected to be completed in 2018. .........................................................................................................................................................................................................
IMPACT STRATEGIES HELPS WEIR PARTS DISTRIBUTION GAIN SUBSTANTIAL EFFICIENCIES WITH NEW FACILITY COMPLETION IMPACT Strategies recently teamed up with J.R. Rentals, LLC to complete their 114,000-square-foot warehouse and office building for Weir Parts Distribution in Red Bud, Illinois. The new top-of-the-line facility for the all GM, all Ford, and Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram parts dealer was designed by Quadrant Design, Inc, of Waterloo. “Until now, our business operations had been spread out over 10 different storage buildings. The new facility enables us to consolidate our operations, which undoubtedly will benefit our employees and customers,” said Norman L. Roy, owner of Weir Parts Distribution. “I couldn’t have been more pleased with how IMPACT Strategies handled the challenges along the way. Even the weather didn’t stand in their way to get this project completed on time,” he added. Substantial efficiencies are expected to be gained with the new facility and its custom technology and conveyors. The warehouse has space to accommodate the 74 trucks in Weir’s fleet and office space for their 100+ employees.

Chamber Member Update MEMORIAL HOSPITAL NAMED AMONG NATION’S BEST FOR QUALITY PATIENT OUTCOMES Memorial Hospital Belleville has been recognized by Healthgrades as one of America’s top hospitals for quality patient outcomes in six specific service areas and patient safety. Healthgrades, the leading online resource that helps consumers search, compare and connect with physicians and hospitals, evaluated nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 34 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions. Memorial was recognized for the following: CARDIOLOGY Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Heart Failure NEUROSCIENCES Five-Star Recipient of Stroke PULMONARY Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease GASTROINTESTINAL Healthgrades Gastrointestinal Excellence Award – Two Years in a Row (2107-2018) Ranked Among the Top 10% in the Nation for Overall GI Services – Two Years in a Row (2017-2018) Five-Star Recipient for Esophageal/Stomach Surgeries – Two Years in a Row (2017-2018) Five-Star Recipient for Colorectal Surgeries Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of GI Bleed – Two Years in a Row (2017-2018) CRITICAL CARE Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Sepsis – Two Years in a Row (2017-2018) Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Pulmonary Embolism (2018) Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Respiratory Failure – Eleven Years in a Row (2008-2018) PATIENT SAFETY Recipient of Healthgrades Patient Safety Excellence Award – Three Years in a Row (2015-2017) Among Top 5% in the Nation for Patient Safety - Two Years in a Row (2016-2017) Among Top 10% in the Nation for Patient Safety – Three Years in a Row (2015-2017) These achievements are part of findings released in American Hospital Quality Outcomes 2018: Report to the Nation, which demonstrates how clinical performance differs between hospitals and the impact that this variation may have on health outcomes. For example, from 2013-2015, if all hospitals as a group, performed similarly to hospitals receiving 5-stars as a group, on average 223,412 could potentially have been saved and 162,215 complications could potentially have been avoided. A 5-star rating indicates that Memorial’s clinical outcomes are better than expected when treating the condition or performing the procedure being evaluated. “We are extremely pleased with these ratings,” said Mark J. Turner, Memorial’s president. “We know consumers have a choice of where to go for their healthcare services and rely on resources, like Healthgrades, to help them make those decisions.” For its analysis, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 45 million Medicare inpatient records for nearly 4,500 shortterm acute care hospitals nationwide, assessing hospital performance relative to each of 32 common conditions and procedures. Healthgrades recognizes a hospital’s quality achievements for cohort-specific performance, specialty area performance, and overall clinical quality. Individual procedure or condition cohorts are designated as 5-star (statistically significantly better than expected), 3-star (statistically as expected) and 1-star (statistically worse than expected) categories. The complete Healthgrades 2017 Report to the Nation and study methodology, can be found at www. healthgrades.com/quality.
