Taylor Elementary Achieves Gold Award from First Lady By Sam Gomez

Sgomez@ontnews.com

Only as far back as November of 2011, a CPS report determined that Douglas Taylor Elementary school, located at 9912 S. Ave H, was not a healthy school. “We can’t have this at Taylor school!” exclaimed Dr. William Truesdale, Principal of Taylor. This initial report triggered Principal Truesdale as well as the entire staff and student body to take

Playing in four tournaments this year with the first one being in Orland Park, July 2nd thru July 8th, the 10U Hegewisch All Stars placed 2nd out of 20 teams in the pool play. Losing in the 2nd round of single elimination, 10-3 versus Homer Glen who ultimately took 1st place, they finished with a record of 4-1.

action, culminating in the school being awarded the Gold level of the “Go for the Gold” USDA’s HealthierUS School Challenge. This challenge is a cornerstone of the ‘Let’s Move!’ initiative, an ambitious initiative to solve the childhood obesity epidemic within a generation, implemented by First Lady Michelle Obama.

By ONT Staff.

yourvoice@ontnews.com The Hegewisch Lions Club celebrated its 50th Anniversary at Steve’s Lounge in Hegewisch. The Club’s Charter Night was also held at Steve’s Lounge on June 9th, 1962. On this night The Hegewisch lions extended a sincere thanks to the Lansing Lions Club who sponsored their charter. Principal Speaker, District 1A Governor Lion, Austin D’ Souza, delivered an inspirational address detailing International, State, District and Local accomplishments throughout the past year. The Club’s officers were installed for 2012-13 by past District Governor Lion, Bob Block. Other local clubs in attendance included the Southeast Side Lions, East Side Lions, Calumet City Lions and Lansing Lions. Lions Club International has 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members making it the world’s largest service club organization. It is also one of the most effective and its members do whatever is needed to help their local

communities. “Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet,” says Lion, Tim David. Whenever a Lions Club gets together, problems get smaller and communities get better. That’s because they help where help is needed – in communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy. The Lions Club vision is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding.

Taylor Elementary Achieves Gold Award from First Lady Continued from front page “Our schools are on the frontlines in this effort and your participation in the HealthierUS School Challenge is fundamental to helping solve the problem of childhood obesity,” said First Lady Michelle Obama in a personal letter sent to Taylor Elementary. Since its launch in August 2010, Go for the Gold has connected Chicago Public Schools with health and wellness resources ranging from nutrition education initiatives to sports and physical activity programs. The challenge includes standards for school food, physical activity, physical education and nutrition education. The campaign builds on the school food program that CPS rolled out for the 2010-11 school year, which meets and in many cases exceeds the gold standard of the HealthierUS School Challenge. “This was a full on joint effort by every one of the 720 students and faculty. In order for a program of this magnitude to work you must have the support of every person at every level. There is a

total culture change happening here,” said Principal Truesdale. “We could not have done this without the participation of our students and faculty. Even the student council got involved by becoming role models with regard to healthy eating and better nutrition. “As a winner of the Gold Award, Douglas Taylor Elementary is among the very best of the best – going above and beyond the minimum requirements to help ensure your students live full and active lives,” said First Lady Michelle Obama. Taylor Elementary is one of only 37 schools being recognized this year and is one of only 11 other schools to earn the “Gold” level certification. First Lady Michelle Obama went on to praise the efforts by saying, “The environment you and your team have created through education, nutritious food and beverage choices, and opportunities for physical activity will help your students learn how to make healthy choices now and for years to come.” Currently, Taylor Elementary has an excellent array of sports programs to include, golf, soccer, softball and a middle

school dance club in conjunction with the world renowned Joffrey Ballet. “We have added those types of sports and physical activities as well to give the students every opportunity to be healthy,” said Principal Truesdale. “The students involved in the dance group are learning real world skills such as responsibility and discipline. These traits come along with being a part of such a respected dance group.” Principal Truesdale also had a special thank you to retired CPS teacher Ms. Diane Kucharzak and praised his staff by saying, ”One of the last things Ms. Kucharzak did with CPS was to help write the grant. My teachers have been phenomenal with what they have been doing with the students for recess.” Another way Taylor School is going above and beyond the scope of this award has been to bring in the Lester Learning Institute to implement what is called the “Calm Classroom.” This program involves breathing and yoga exercises in the morning to achieve selfawareness, mental focus and inner calm. “The whole school does it. The teachers, the parents and students all participate,”

Aunt Sally’s

said Dr. Truesdale. And the positive effects are already starting to show. “We are beginning to see a change with the students in their behavior. Instead of reacting to things right away they take deep breathes to calm themselves down. I’m seeing much more temperance. They aren’t just reacting right away, they are thinking.” This is no small achievement and First Lady Michelle Obama concluded the magnitude of this award by saying, “Our strength as a Nation and our ability to responsibly shape our future depends on tackling childhood obesity, and I am inspired by the work you are all doing to help realize the promise of a brighter, healthier tomorrow for our children.” Congratulations to Douglas Taylor Elementary School, Chicago Public School’s newest “Gold Level” certification recipient.

ONT / Issue 13 / Vol.5

On Tuesday, July 31st, A. Finkl Sons & Co. in conjunction with Alderman John A. Pope planted various flowers and shrubs along the front and side of St. Francis de Sale High School, located at 10155 & Ewing Ave. Volunteers from All In Ministries, a religious youth group based in Portland, Mich., came out the help with all the planting along with students from SFDS. Special thanks to Finkl Landscaping a division of A. Finkl Sons & Co. for donating over $2000 worth of flowers and shrubs of various sizes and colors. Without whom this would not be possible. A. Finkl & Sons Co. is the world’s leading supplier of forging die steels, plastic mold steels, die casting tool steels and custom open-die forgings. Although Finkl is not located in the 10th ward, they do have strong ties to the area. Alderman John A. Pope believes that local businesses should be good corporate citizens. “I am very enthusiastic that

Finkl was able to provide these wonderful flowers and shrubs,” said Alderman Pope. “Without them, the school would have never been able to get without sacrificing something else in return.” Ray Nedohon, president of SFDS, said he really appreciates what Finkl Landscaping has done for the school. While speaking with him about this major improvement and he hopes that it will attract students from all over the area, and will look to St. Francis as one of their top high school choices.

gathered to compete. Teams from Russell Square Park, Our Lady of Guadalupe and YMCA to name a few, competed with Team Fire taking the winning title. Event goers and players were treated to hot dogs, snow cones and desserts courtesy of the event organizers.

Local groups: Claretian Associates, South Chicago Neighborhood House, 10th Ward Alderman Pope’s Office, YMCA Street

Interventions, Pilgrim Baptist Church, Chicago Park District and La Causa Community, took part in organizing and/ or sponsoring the event. For the past six years, community organizations from 12 Chicago neighborhoods have grown unique versions of the summer basketball league. This season, neighborhood organizations have united in a common, cross-

community goal to empower residents— through basketball— to reclaim their streets, encourage social responsibility and promote respect, friendship and peace. The Hoops in the Hood Cross-City Championship will take place on Saturday, Aug. 18 at Seward Park, 375 W. Elm St.

Bgrabinski@ontnews.com Total Recall (2012) PG-13 118 min - Action | Adventure | Sci-Fi 3 August 2012 (USA) SYNOPSIS: A factory worker, Douglas Quaid, begins to suspect that he is a spy after visiting Rekall - a company that provides its clients with implanted fake memories of a life they would like to have led - goes wrong and he finds himself on the run. REVIEW: This is the second featurelength adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s paranoiac sci-fi thriller, whose 1966 short story, “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale,” was the inspiration for both cinematic adaptations. This film is directed by Len Wiseman, who’s helmed the Underworld franchise. Fans of Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 original will immediately notice a few major changes:

no Schwarzenegger, no Mars, no exploding heads.... Anyways, Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) whom he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police. Set in a dystopic 2084 which looks an awful lot like Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner and a pinch from The Fifth Element. A great deal of effort has gone into creating a new Total Recall world. Gone are the Johnny Cabs, and aliens of the original. They have been replaced by synthetic robots that resemble in more ways than one the Storm Troopers from Star Wars. On a scale of 1-10, I give this one an 8. My 2¢ -B Read the full review online: www.themotionpicturereviewer.blogspot.com

On Sunday morning the Hegewisch girls faced Homewood 12U. Another great start by Kaitlyn Castro who gave up three runs and Amy Flores who came in and gave up three runs as well. The Hegewisch 12U battled back with Lauren Cikulin hitting a two run homer making the score 6-5. Hegewisch loaded up the bases with no outs but came up short in the game against Homewood 12U. The girls moved on to play for third place against Homewood 11U. The game was a blow out with Hegewisch winning 14-4.

The 14U Hegewisch All Stars won the Championship at Mann Park tournament in their bracket, making it two wins coming off the Evergreen tournament. Synergy Orange 16U finished 3rd place in their respective brackets after having won 4th at the Orland Park tournament.
