find laser dentistry to be similarly refreshing. As your dentist won’t need to numb your tooth prior to removal of decay, you’ll appreciate the ease of anesthesia-free treatment. No numb lips, needles, or post-procedural soreness: simply a restored smile. The WaterLase iPlus treats cavities without affecting the rest of your teeth, causing microfractures, or cross-contaminating. Only the decayed portion of the tooth will be removed, leaving healthy tissue intact. The iPlus aids our Hinsdale Dentistry team in providing you with ideal dental care.

Laser treatment is going biological – and with good reason. Dental lasers make treatment more comfortable, precise, and efficient. Whether you’re prone to dental anxiety, saddled with sensitive teeth, or concerned about your next procedure, there’s relief ahead. PERFECTING PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY The ultimate goal of pediatric dentistry is to keep your children’s teeth healthy without causing them any anxiety or discomfort. If your kids build positive associations with dentistry, they’ll be relaxed at the dentist’s for the rest of their lives. Lasers help us identify and treat decay without unnecessary exploration of healthy tooth structure, resulting in painless treatment. Your kids will be delighted with their shot-free, speedy fillings – and look forward to returning to our office.

WHITENING WITHOUT SENSITIVITY While teeth whitening is incredibly popular, it isn’t possible for every patient. Those struggling with sensitivity find the whitening gel too harsh and treatment painful. Laser whitening changes the experience. Not only are whitening appointments briefer, they’re more comfortable for patients with twingeprone enamel. The gentle whitening laser helps activate hydrogen peroxide

SIMPLE COSMETIC GUM CONTOURING Our gums play an important part in the aesthetics of our smiles. Sometimes they can be uneven or unbalanced, resulting in a grin that leaves you wanting. Laser gum contouring makes subtle, specific tweaks to your gum line to reshape your smile. Less invasive and less painful than traditional gum surgery, laser contouring will deliver results with minimal healing. Laser dentistry helps set Hinsdale Dentistry apart, and we’re excited to share it with you. Ready to experience pain-free, shot-free dental care? Call our office and ask for the WaterLase or Epic laser for your next dental appointment.

This event gives these special folks the opportunity to dress up, dance and dine with friends and family. • It teaches me as a mother, gratitude, and compassion for my special needs patients. • It teaches me as a practicing Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon gratitude and compassion for all my patients.

Your Story – and Ours

At CSC Steil Dermatology, we know every one of our patients has a unique story. Whether you come to see us for natural looking Botox injections, the latest in long lasting fillers, to help reverse sun damage, or get expert diagnoses and treatment of skin diseases and skin cancers, getting to know you and your story is part of our process. It lets us deliver to you the most tailored, effective treatment possible. It’s also why many patients become our friends, and why we often treat generations within the same family. So many of you have let us into your lives. You’ve told us why you love coming to Steil Dermatology – we want to return the favor: So, we asked our staff, what do you love about being part of the skincare team at Steil Dermatology? Before coming to Steil Dermatology, I didn’t know how important skin care is! But I’ve seen both Dr. Steil and Dr. Bognet achieve drastic improvements in patients’ skin, through both treatments and teaching proper skin care. I love seeing how the doctors and staff treat every person who comes in here with special care. And I especially love that when patients see their skin improve–they just seem happier! —CECILIA I learn something new every day, and then I get to apply that knowledge to the next patient or situation. I see the doctors stay on the cutting edge of the latest treatments and know how much patients benefit from that. Steil Dermatology is different: I see how our staff and doctors interact with the patients so that their visits really are much more than a medical visit. —GRACE The number one reason I enjoy working at CSC Steil Dermatology is that the doctors meet at a personal level with each patient. I also love that the office atmosphere is so welcoming. We work as a team to meet every patient’s needs, and enjoy caring for patients with everything from skin cancer surgeries, to establishing the perfect skin care regimen for everyday use. —CLARA

DR. CHRISTINA STEIL DR. RACHEL BOGNET 18

hinsdale60521.com | Hinsdale Magazine, Inc.

What drew CSC Founder Christina Steil, and her partner Dr. Rachel Bognet, to practice dermatology in the first place? Dr. Steil puts it this way: “to me the best thing about being a dermatologist is that I’m a doctor in one of the rare fields where I can be both a specialist, and a partner with a patient over time. I have treated teenagers that have developed into young adults that now bring their babies to the office for care. I’ve developed close relationships with senior couples who visit the office together for their skin checks, and I’ve shared tears with the widow when she has her first appointment alone.” It’s also exciting to Dr. Bognet and me that dermatology evolves daily. At the same time, the same person’s skin care needs change based on age, pregnancy, or just stress. We enjoy getting creative to work with our patients on meeting their evolving skin care needs and concerns right now. We both really enjoy the visual aspect of dermatology, seeing the improvement or solving the problem. Not just on the skin, but in the eyes of the person who didn’t know it could feel so good to look so good. And we love the chance to walk patients through treatment options, the many cutting edge choices we offer, and educating them on how to choose the options that are right for them. As dermatologists we play the major role in detecting and treating skin cancers, and other effects of sun damage. But we are also uniquely poised to help patients develop skin care habits and routines that can significantly decrease these skin problems.” I always try to take that extra minute to convince teenagers about the importance of a daily sun block, for instance, and how that will keep their skin healthy for a lifetime” says Steil. And yes, it’s just fun to pick out products with any patient – to sort of create a unique recipe – that will make them happier with the skin they are in. If you are not already a patient of CSC Steil Dermatology, we look forward to getting to know and your story. Call CSC Steil Dermatology now, for a consultation on how we can help you love the unique skin you are in!

he AMI Summer Music Camp will take place from July 17 to 21 at AMI’s Clarendon Hills

campus. This day-camp is open to all instruments and levels of students, from beginner to advanced, ages 5 to 18, with after-care available until 5:30 p.m. AMI Summer Music Camp is held Monday through Friday, with each day consisting of five various instructional and academic classes, a lunch period, and orchestra or band. “The AMI camp is an exciting, educational and fun way to spend part of the summer playing music,” executive director Remus Badea said, “while being trained by amazing AMI faculty, hailing from local colleges and universities.” AMI offers three separate camps, designed for students of varying ages and playing levels: beginner camp, little Mozart and young artist. Beginner camp is designed for 5- to 12-year-olds, and is intended for students with no previous

playing experience. The camp will explore many instruments each day, where students will have a chance to play and create music, along with composing songs and playing together. Little Mozart camp is designed for 5- to 12-year-olds, and is intended for students that have been playing a year or more. It is ideal for students involved in a school band, orchestra or choir. Young artist camp is designed for 13- to 18-year-olds, and is geared towards students with more advanced playing experience. This camp allows students to hone their skills, explore their musical interests, learn more advanced techniques on their instruments, as well as music theory, history, composition, instrument pedagogy, chamber music and orchestra or band.

Q&A ASK THE EXPERT

MICHAEL JANKOWSKI President & CEO

LARRY E. GATZ Vice President

BUSINESS SUCCESSION PLANNING WILL YOUR BUSINESS SURVIVE AFTER YOU LEAVE? Business owners often face many challenges as they look to sustain their businesses through various challenges. The loss of a key person, or the retirement or unexpected death of an owner can place an incredible strain on the business, but having a buy-sell agreement in place can protect both the business and the owner’s family. Think of a buy-sell agreement, sometimes called a buyout agreement, as a “business will” of sorts. Essentially, it’s a legal contract which provides stakeholders the option of purchasing the business interests of an owner who, retires, becomes disabled, or passes away. This strategy works in two ways:

CROSS PURCHASE PLAN

Each owner purchases a life insurance policy on each of the owners. When an owner dies, the surviving owner uses the proceeds to purchase the deceased owner’s share of the business.

ENTITY PURCHASE/STOCK REDEMPTION

the business typically purchases an insurance policy on the owner, and uses the death benefit to buy the deceased owner’s share from their family. A buy/sell agreement will give business owners peace of mind knowing that their business will be in capable hands, and that there is an orderly system in place to transfer wealth, ownership, and management. In addition, their families will not be tasked with having to try and operate or sell the business. As every situation is different, talk to a financial professional prior to implementing a business succession plan such as this. There are multiple strategies and ways to structure a business succession plan, and retirement is too important to not arrange it properly. We are available and happy to assist you in evaluating your retirement needs anytime with a complimentary consultation. Please give our office a call today.

Each owner creates an agreement with the business for the sale of their ownership interest in the business. In this case,

Hinsdale Central students will perform The Little Mermaid from April 20 to 22.

Setting

THE STAGE Hinsdale Central cast performs The Little Mermaid

by Mike Ellis, Contributing Editor | Photography by Daniel Garcia Hinsdale Central will present The Little Mermaid as its annual musical in the school auditorium in four shows from April 20 to 22. The cast of roughly 40 will be performing the musical version of the story, adapted from the film. “It’s similar in the way that it’s still about Ariel wanting to be on land, but I think the end is a bit different than the movie,” said senior Ella Heider, who will perform in the ensemble cast. “I think it’s more real in the way that Eric searches for her, and it shows

hinsdale60521.com | Hinsdale Magazine, Inc.

actual ways that humans interact; whereas the movie feels more like a fantasy.” “I think it’s a really uplifting show,” said senior Lily Chrones, who will play the part of Flounder, a tropical fish and Ariel’s best friend. “The movie version is a lot different than the musical version; there’s a lot of added songs, the sisters are featured a lot more, the ending is different, Ursula has a different song. It’s like the movie, but enhanced to another level.” Unlike the musicals the drama department has produced the past two years, The Secret Garden and Fiddler on the Roof, this show is much more familiar to the cast from the outset, many of the students having watched the Disney animated film adaptation growing up. “When you’re little, you grow up watching The Little Mermaid, singing the songs,” Chrones said. “I’m excited for the kids to see it.” Heider called The Little Mermaid her “favorite Disney movie ever,” and senior Karsen Kolnicki, who will play Arista, one of Ariel’s sisters, said she feels this musical will reach a “bigger audience.”


“I personally hadn’t seen The Secret Garden before we did it, and so it was much more of a difficult process learning it if I had never seen it,” Kolnicki said. “I wasn’t as familiar with the music.” Some students will be performing in their first musical at Central—and there are even some seniors in this category. Senior Nadine Alkharrat, who moved to the school last year from Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, has prior performance experience, but has yet to perform a musical at her new school. “It’s amazing to just get to know the drama club, and people who are just like you, like the same things you do,” Alkharrat said. Senior Katie Connelly has been at Central all four years, but did not begin her involvement with theater at the school until her junior year. “It’s kind of a whole new world,” Connelly said. “I’m really excited to see what happens with this.” For senior Jeremy Miller, performing on stage with his peers was something he contemplated throughout his career at Hinsdale, but he never previously acted on his impulse. “I’ve always been a fan of what the drama club puts on,” Miller said, “and I’ve always thought, ‘I can do that,’ but then I’m like, ‘You know what, I really can’t.’ “ Miller credited fellow senior Jack Rasmussen, who will star as the male lead Eric in The Little Mermaid, and several of his other friends for encouraging him to give it a try. “We see it every single year: the people who come and they do this for the first time their senior year, they always say at the end of the show, ‘Guys, I will forever regret not doing this,’“ Rasmussen said. Due to the familiarity of the show, as with the drama department’s production of Beauty and The Beast three years ago, local children will have the opportunity for a meet-andgreet with the actors in costume at the “Under the Sea royal party” on April 22. “We’ll stay in costume, and we’ll stay in character; we’ll meet all these kids and take pictures, and let them explore this little world,” Rasmussen said. ... “It was amazing seeing their faces light up [with Beauty and The Beast].” Rasmussen said he believes the production will offer something for attendees of all ages. “It’s something that everyone can enjoy for a whole bunch of reasons,” he said. “For starters, it’s incredibly high-energy; you’re going to love it the whole time, and smile, and you’re going to laugh all throughout the show. ... The musical numbers

are beautiful; it’s an Alan Menken score, so it’s absolutely wonderful music, like everything he writes is. “Beyond that, it’s relatable in a lot of ways. Sure, she’s a mermaid...but she’s expressing something that I think a lot of people feel, where she’s saying, ‘I’m happy here, my life here is good, but I want to go find more.’ “ The drama department produces three plays each year, one of which is the freshman play, but it only puts on one musical. Heider said most of the plays feature smaller casts, and Rasmussen said that while attendance is generally lower for the plays, “[with] the musical, you can open up on Friday night, and the entire auditorium is filled.” Kolnicki said moving the musical back a few weeks in the school calendar afforded more students the chance to participate in the production. “People who do fall sports can’t be in the fall play,” she said. “But this year, the musical was pushed back a little, and so now, anyone who did a winter sport can be in the musical.” As far as their experience in the arts at Central, seniors expressed a variety of sentiments, most of which centered on an environment of camaraderie and inclusiveness. “It totally changed everything for me,” Connelly said. “All my friends now are in [the] drama department and [the] music department. ... They’re such high-quality people, and people that I expect to stay in touch with for the rest of my life.” Heider said she and Chrones “cultivated” their friendship through theater and their past musical experience at Clarendon Hills Middle School. “I feel like no one’s out to get each other—we’re all happy for each other, and like a family,” Chrones said. Rasmussen said the bond forged among the male cast members in the musical is “insane.” “I remember freshman year, all the guys were talking before the show,” he said, “and one of the seniors said, ‘There might be guys that will make fun of you, saying you should be playing sports, you should be doing that, but if you can look at them and say, “Hey, go put on your costume, and sing and dance in front of the entire school,” that’s a lot more brave than putting on a football helmet.’ “ n The Hinsdale Central drama department will perform The Little Mermaid from April 20 to 22 in the school auditorium, directed by Domenico Maniscalco, chief human resources officer at District 86. The Thursday and Friday shows will be held in the evening, while two performances will occur on Saturday.

It’s amazing to just get to know the drama club, and people who are just like you, like the same things you do.”

COVERSTORY

PRESERVING HINSDALE

In honor of Women’s History Month, we shine a light on the ladies that make the Hinsdale Historical Society possible by Mike Ellis, Contributing Editor | Photography by Jim Prisching World history is rife with figures that have shaped and unfolded the destiny of mankind. In consulting the history books, the pages are filled with names of individuals distinguished for their genius and sagacity, or for their avarice and conceit—and for the most part, these names are male. But while they are often forgotten by historical authors, nevertheless, women have been present every step of the way in cultivating historical advancements as well, whether in official capacities like Queen Elizabeth I, or as silent influencers such as Martha Washington and Abigail Adams. On a local level, where history is often more personal and grassroots in nature, women are vital to preservation efforts, record-keeping and other tasks of historical societies and museums. The Hinsdale Historical Society (HHS) is primarily comprised of women, who make up 15 of its 18 trustees, its current president, vice president, and of course, the women’s board, which is the driving force behind the Hinsdale Cooks! Kitchen Walk around town each May. “Typically, women seem to be the worker-bees,” historical society executive director Lynne Smaczny said. Smaczny, who joined the HHS in this capacity last November, said she has observed this trend at previous historical societies and museums for which she worked. History is a longstanding passion in Smaczny

that she traces to her childhood. She considers herself an “amateur genealogist,” having identified four of her ancestors that ventured with the Puritans to America aboard the Mayflower, and discovered that another of her relatives perished during the infamous Salem witch trials in the late 17th century. Smaczny said she is “excited” about the opportunity to work in Hinsdale, and to raise greater awareness about the society and its activities. “My passion is local history,” she said. “I love getting down to the personal stories that make up the communities themselves.” Without the work of the women’s board, the primary fundraising arm of the society, Smaczny said the organization would be lost. “If we didn’t have the women’s board, the organization would not have the funds to be operating,” she said. ... “That’s what’s going to keep us going, is the involvement of women.” Current HHS president Emily Van Houtte has volunteered with the historical society for the past five years in various roles, and said she spends roughly 10 to 15 hours per week on society-related work. Van Houtte, who resides in an historic Hinsdale home that was built in 1895, said she was drawn to her involvement by her interest in the history of the village’s development. “I love the history of Hinsdale, and how it was developed from the railroad, so people could Continued on the next page

The idea of an historical society appeals to me, because where we live becomes a part of our own personal story, our heritage and our legacy.” —JANE COYNE

commute from the city to Hinsdale, just like so many people do today,” she said. “I love how William Robbins, the founder of Hinsdale, platted the streets, and lined them with many of the trees that still exist today. “I have been able to give tours to schoolchildren, and teach them about the history of Hinsdale. It is exciting to have them come back to the Hinsdale History Museum with their families, and tell their parents and siblings what they learned.” First vice president Jane Coyne said she became affiliated with the historical society when she was approached by a friend that was seeking to fill its vacant treasurer post. Coyne said she was intrigued by the society’s properties, collections and archives, as well as her enjoyment of history and architecture. “The society has given me an opportunity to be involved in my community in a number of different ways, both as a board member and a volunteer,” she said. “The idea of an historical society appeals to me, because where we live becomes a part of our own personal story, our heritage and our legacy.” The HHS is responsible for maintaining three historic structures in Hinsdale: the Hinsdale History Museum on Clay Street, Immanuel Hall at the corner of Grant and Third, and the R. Harold Zook Home and Studio, which has been uprooted from its original location and transported to its present residence at Katherine Legge Memorial Park. It has also amassed an impressive archive of local documents, including photos, newspapers, books, magazines, biographies, maps, house histories, blueprints and phone books. And if you were searching for an old Hinsdale Central High School— or even Hinsdale Township High School—yearbook, the collection in the Immanuel Hall basement contains dozens of El Diablo’s. One of the society’s major current projects is the creation of a phone app that would offer walking and bike tours highlighting 24 Zook homes in Hinsdale. Smaczny said that Zook’s architecture seems to be among the “most unique” facets of the village’s

history. She said that while she understands not every older home in Hinsdale will be preserved, she is hopeful that increasing the knowledge of the village’s historic architecture will make some residents think twice before demolishing older homes in favor of new ones. “What I hope to do is...at least to bring awareness to the importance of architecture and the Zook environments,” Smaczny said. ... “If we can highlight some of the gems that we have in Hinsdale, and make [residents] aware of what they add to the character of Hinsdale, hopefully people will jump on the bandwagon to save as much as we can.” Smaczny said the Zook app is a project that the society “would definitely like to see happen in 2017.” Other current society initiatives include relaunching its historical-home plaque program, developing a scholarship for local high-school students desiring to study history in college, and establishing “fun Fridays” at the history museum during summer, offering kids the opportunity to learn a new topic each week. “I want everyone in Hinsdale to know that, ‘We have a historical society; they have three buildings, and one of them is right down the street,’ “ Smaczny said. Coyne said she hopes residents view the historical society as a resource and asset to the community. “I hope the society offers the community an opportunity to see that where we live is a part of who we are, and is a place that people know they can share their love and pride for the Hinsdale community,” she said, “whether by attending our programs, events and exhibits, utilizing our resources at the archives in the [Roger & Ruth Anderson] architecture center, helping to fundraise to support our mission, or through other volunteer opportunities in the organization.” n For more information about the Hinsdale Historical Society, visit www.hinsdalehistory.org.

TWICE AS NICE

Seamlessly combining two kitchens strikes the perfect balance orld-renowned kitchen designer Mick DeGiulio is known for his innovative kitchen designs. Designing for clients that were avid entertainers, DeGiulio immediately thought about the idea of two kitchens: one, a working kitchen for caterers and setup, and the other, a living kitchen with no indications of behind-the-scenes prepping. Using transoms, sliding-glass and pocket doors, sliding-stone backsplashes between kitchens, a dividing stone wall in the center of the space that doubles as a storage area on the working side, while accommodating the exhaust for the hood on the living kitchen side, DeGiulio seamlessly connected the two kitchens, while keeping function a top priority. n

LIGHT UP THE NIGHT PHOTOS BY MIKE ELLIS

More than 220 local residents attended “Light Up the Night,” the annual benefit hosted by the Clarendon Hills chapter of the Infant Welfare Society (IWS) auxiliary at Butterfield Country Club in Oak Brook on Jan. 27. Luminaria aligned the driveway leading up to the clubhouse, alluding to the chapter’s signature fundraiser and holiday tradition on Christmas Eve. Inside, dozens of silent auction items awaited guests, including Hamilton tickets, a fire truck ride for a child to school courtesy of the Clarendon Hills Fire Department, and tickets to Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs and White Sox games. In the live auction, a 100-person barbecue pig roast donated by Firewater BBQ made the biggest splash, as matching $6,000 bids yielded a pair of prodigious roasts for the bidders, and $12,000 for IWS. After dinner, Nayeli Navarette spoke about her experiences at Infant Welfare’s Angel Harvey Community Health Center on the Northwest Side.

About 600 local residents headed down to the city to raise money for community members in need at “Amore,” the Hinsdale Junior Woman’s Club’s (HJWC) annual benefit, at Salvage One on the West Side of Chicago on Feb. 4. Attendees were attired in immaculate vintage wear, and enjoyed an exhilarating evening of dancing, libations and entertainment. HJWC members Allison Peters and Jen Ashley took to the stage to join the band for a number, as their peers danced on the floor below them. Later in the evening, Grammy-winning rapper Lil’ Jon brought the house down with a guest DJ appearance, as the second floor of Salvage One came alive. A new wrinkle in this year’s benefit was the benefactors dinner, which was conducted in a commodious space on the third floor, and featured several dozen key donors to the cause.

The Robert Crown Center for Health Education (RCC) welcomed 250 guests to enjoy a gallery event that featured art by 15 Chicago-area artists on Jan. 28. The event was the third of its kind hosted by the non-profit organization, which relies on such fundraising endeavors to pay for the creation and delivery of health education programs to more than 80,000 students annually. Artists sold paintings, sculptures and other works, and donated a portion of their earnings back to the health center. In addition to the display of dozens of pieces, the event ticket included food, drinks, raffles and live music. Approximately $14,000 was raised to support RCC.

About 375 area residents turned out for the tenth annual Heartfest fundraiser, hosted by the Mend a Heart Foundation, at The Community House in Hinsdale on Feb. 18. This event, styled “Brewfest,” as it incorporated a number of local micro-breweries, set an attendance record for the non-profit. The fundraiser was initiated by foundation cofounders Brian and Bridget O’Meara of Clarendon Hills, whose son Liam was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect at birth. Brewfest featured both silent and live auctions, including items such as a World Series base signed by Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell, a baseball autographed by Alex Rodriguez, and a helmet signed by Barry Sanders. In the live auction, two original paintings by ArtBeat Live artist Elliot From were sold, generating a total of $10,000 for the foundation. Proceeds from Brewfest will support a variety of heart-related initiatives.

ROWING CREW

The Chicago Rowing Foundation will offer a rowing program open to both boys and girls for the 2017-18 school-year.

For athletes in the Western Suburbs, rowing occupies a unique place. Many are familiar with its physical rigors, having spent time on indoor stationary rowers. Others have second-hand knowledge obtained from the best-selling book, Boys in the Boat. Some believe rowing’s domain is isolated on Ivy League campuses; few have had the opportunity to try it. Starting in August 2017, students in Hinsdale and its environs will have a first -time opportunity to learn to row. The Chicago Rowing Foundation (CRF) will offer a

“Learn to Row” program for high-school students on the Des Plaines River from July 31 to Aug. 4. During the weeklong summer program, 30 students will have the opportunity to learn the stroke work, balance, rhythm, teamwork and conditioning critical to rowing. When the 2017-18 school-year commences, CRF will offer a comprehensive, competitive high-school rowing program open to both boys and girls. CRF boasts nationally-ranked high-school and “masters”

programs, operating out of one of the premier facilities in the Midwest: the WMS Boathouse on the banks of the Chicago River. The opportunities CRF creates for its student athletes extend beyond the race course; its graduates are recruited by highly-selective colleges and universities, including Brown, CalBerkley, Princeton, Dartmouth and Stanford. CRF’s Learn to Row program as well as its high-school team will use the dock and storage space of the newly-created Hinsdale Community Rowing Club, founded by Amy and Steve Louis and Gerald and Marion Jablonski. The two couples developed a deep interest in rowing while watching their children compete throughout high school and college. Their shared desire to incorporate rowing into their personal fitness regimens, and their passion for opening rowing to others, sparked the creation of Hinsdale Community Rowing. In a single season, the club has grown to a membership of 37. Ranging in experience from novice to elite, members travel from Oak Park, Western Springs and Rosemont to take advantage of the water and equipment. CRF head coach Mike Wallin is thrilled with the new opportunity.

“The Des Plaines River offers outstanding straight stretches of water with very limited boat traffic.,” Wallin said. Wallin said he is eager to see the athletic talent at Hinsdale Central and South High Schools, Lyons Township High School, Carl Sandburg High School, Downers Grove North and South High Schools, and other nearby high schools. n The Hinsdale Community Rowing Club’s facilities are located at 9951 S. Madison Street in Burr Ridge. Registration is available at www.rowchicago.com/ summercamp.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT

The lesson of Shutruk-Nahunte Aspiring Emperors In the Hollywood motion picture, The Emperor’s Club,1 actor Kevin Kline plays the role of William Hundert, a professor of history at an elite boarding school. The students in his class bear the marks of those raised in “successful families.” They have enjoyed privileges and comforts for most or all of their lives. They feel the pressure to keep up the standards, and rack up the kinds of victories their parents did. Some are anxious about this; some assume it is in their DNA or destinies. All sense the summons to be ambitious, to achieve great things— in short, “to be a success.” At one point, professor Hundert strolls pensively before a row of desks, and then stops before one of the boys in his class. “You, sir,” he says, “would you do me a favor and walk to the back of this classroom, and read for us the plaque which you see hanging over that door.” The boy rises nervously, proceeds to the back of the room, and squints up through his glasses at the plaque that hangs there. He reads the inscription carved into the wood: I am Shutruk-Nahunte, king of Anshand and Susa, sovereign of the land of Elam. By the command of Inshushinak, I destroyed Sippar and took the stele of Niran-Sin and brought it back to Elam, where I erected it as an offering to my god. --Shuktruk-Nahunte, 1158 B.C. “Well done, Mr. Blythe,” the professor exclaimed. “Thank you; you may be seated.” As the lad shuffles off, Hundert continued, “ShutrukNahunte—is anyone familiar with this fellow? Texts are permissible…” The students dutifully reach for their history books, but as pages start to turn, the professor cries, “You won’t find him there! “Shutruk-Nahunte—king, sovereign of the land of Elam.” Rolling down a map, the teacher points to the kingdom in question, just to the east of Israel above the Red Sea. “Destroyer of Sippar! Behold, his accomplishments cannot be found in any history book. Why? Because great ambition and conquest, without contribution, is without significance.”

And then, pausing for a moment to let these words sink in, the professor concludes, “What will your contribution be? How will history remember you?” Re-thinking Our Ambition This world is always trying to shape us and our children into Shutruk-Nahunte’s. We are perpetually pushed to think of our lives as all about asserting our sovereign will and rights. From the “bling” and “cribs” of celebrities, to Madison Ave.’s continuous calls to buy and upgrade, we are exposed to a constant barrage of messages aimed at picturing success as a matter of extending our own personal kingdoms. Life is about being the “Survivor” that outwits his opponents, or the “Apprentice” that climbs over others at any cost to get to the top of the pack. We should, of course, teach our kids to use their wits, to work hard, to aspire towards greater resource and influence. If we are not careful, however, our coaching can leave them with the impression that the primary goal of existence is to climb the next ladder, to exceed the competition, to accrue a better position or set of privileges for themselves alone. They may never learn the lesson that great ambition and conquest, without contribution, is without significance. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett seem to get this—Condoleeza Rice and Oprah Winfrey, too: “Unless you choose to do great things with it, it makes no difference how much you are rewarded or how much power you have.” Some years ago, while I was visiting him in Hong Kong, a Chinese pastor shared with me that the major difference he saw between religious communities in the West and those with whom he worked in the East is that the former often emphasizes “coming and sitting,” while the emphasis in the other is upon “going and serving.” “I’ve noticed that,” he said, “in your country you say quite often, ‘Bless me, God.’ I wonder what would happen if you said more often, ‘Use me, God.’ ” The Beggar’s Request The story is told of a monk that once found a very precious gem. He carried the jewel with him everywhere, hung in a

bag over his heart. One day, the monk came upon a beggar along the side of the road. Reaching beneath his robes, the holy man removed the jewel from its bag, and gave it to the poor man. The man was obviously thankful, but stunned speechless. Making a sign of blessing towards the beggar, the monk then went upon his way. About an hour later, the monk was overtaken on the road by the same beggar. “Give me something more precious than this gem,” the beggar said. Taken aback, the monk replied, “I’m sorry, but I’ve got nothing more to give you.” “Oh, yes you do,” the beggar said. “Please—give me whatever you have in your heart that moved you to give me this gem.” Do you and I have that gift? Is it our orientation (or that of our kids) to walk into our homes and schools, our places of work or worship, thinking: “What’s the contribution I can make here? What might I have in my pocket, my purse, my personality or package of gifts that can enrich the lives of others?” Or are we still learning the lesson of Shutruk-Nahunte?

PEAK PERFORMANCE

Are you waiting? Make it happen! Don’t you think it’s time to narrow your focus on what you want in life? Don’t wait until you have no options; now is the time to shed the mental waste that flows through most of our brains; now is the time to focus your energy like a champion. We all have options in life. Free-will calls the shots. What outfit do I wear? What route will I drive to work? What projects will I pursue? What foods will I eat? When and how much will I work out? What are my goals? What are my dreams? What will I accomplish by year’s end? Two things are certain: you will either be better or worse. The real question in life is, “Are you proactive or reactive?” A friend recently had a heart attack; another friend was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer; another great friend just lost his job. Two have swiftly narrowed their focus to their health, while one has narrowed his focus to digging an income stream. All other options in their lives were either eliminated or put on hold. “All hands on deck” is the battlecry being delivered every day by their minds and bodies. Why do we wait to be proactive until we’re out of options? I guess the old saying is true: “Man is at his best when things are at their worst.”

It is the rare individual, however, that is consistent in his or her positive focus. If you want consistent results, you must think consistently. These are the champions; these are the proactive ones that wait for no one. These men and women get after it, and fight for what they want in life. They can and do enter a highly-productive mindset on a consistent basis. It’s time to focus proactively. Here’s your challenge. First, place all of your life options on a sheet of paper. Now eliminate or place all of them on hold, except for one. The option that you’ve selected to pursue will be your primary focus for seven days. For seven days and seven nights, see this option completed in your mind. See it so within 30 m ­ inutes of going to sleep; see it in your mind upon waking every morning before your feet hit the floor. For seven days, this option will be at the forefront of your thoughts. You will have a minimum of 14 times to indelibly etch your quest into your mind. Next, sprinkle the thought of this option over the next 112 hours. Be proactive; be your own cheerleader. Make it happen.
