Some Dog Owners Didn’t Believe It... BUT It’s True. Too good to be true, or is it? Hi. My name is John O’Driscoll and I couldn’t believe it when a new dog owner customer of mine told me what her girlfriends were doing. Before I get into that, let me ask you a question. Have you seen our free 1st grooming? Well, if you’re like a recent customer of ours, you might be thinking that it’s not for real or there’s a catch or there might be some sneaky upsell when you come in. (It’s Real.) But, first, let me say: I get it... I get it... in life there always

seems to be a catch. And I know when it seems like something is too good to be true, it usually is... except this time I want you to know this is a genuine offer from a genuine grooming shop. So why am I doing this? Frankly, we want your business. I think we give such great service that I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is and pay my groomer to groom your dog. At the risk of sounding too confident, I think we have one of the best groomers in DuPage County. All you have to do is call us today. Call 630-969-3145. Just ask us for the free grooming offer you saw in the paper and we’ll take care of the rest. Obviously, I can’t do an unlimited number of these.

There is only a couple of spots available per day, so if you have a need for a really great grooming, so you can have the best looking dog in the neighborhood, call us today. 630-969-3145. So, back to my customers girlfriend... after she got her free grooming with us, she told her girlfriends that we were the real deal... so a bunch of her girlfriends went looking through their recyclables looking for the paper with our ad. So, instead of getting caught in this situation, why not just give us a call and get your appointment today. Again you can call us at

GET TO KNOW: ROBYN MIKYSKA

Robyn Mikyska, 22, made the sculpture at right from recovered materials. The piece is untitled, but people have come to call it “the can tree,” Mikyska said. Her art is on display at North Central College through the end of the month. Mikyska is looking into how to build a career out of art. She is considering art education or, with her psychology minor, working with art therapy. But much like her art, she’s exploring different options. “I’m just kind of keeping everything open,” she said. And after spending hours setting up the show last weekend, she said she has come across another field that interests her. “I wanted to make sure every piece made sense and had flow,” she said. “I’m wondering now if I should be an art director, because I really liked setting it up.”

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure and, in Robyn Mikyska’s case, the potential for artwork. This month, the 22-year-old Downers Grove resident is displaying some 20 pieces of her artwork at an exhibit at North Central College — the first of this scale for the young artist. If college is the time for experimenting, the North Central senior has been exploring the different facets of sculpting art, and she is using the exhibit to showcase that. “I’m kind of in a point in my artwork where I’m not sure what medium I want to use,” Mikyska said, “so I’ve been kind of exploring several different materials.” The free exhibit opened Monday at the College’s Meiley-Swallow Hall Gallery, 31 S. Ellsworth St., and it runs through March 3. Mikyska’s exhibit, which she is sharing with another student, includes pieces in wood, plaster and trash — or reclaimed art, Mikyska said. “What people would call trash, I like to remake into something that has meaning,” she said. She draws inspiration from everyday objects that catch her attention. For instance, one piece began as a wooden countertop from an old camper. “It was just interesting — the cutouts, where the pipes went through — so I decided to

cost $104,000, or $8,000 at each of the district’s 13 schools. It was approved as part of a $5.1 million package of building updates slated for this summer. In the longer term, district officials are considering a second set of locked doors at each school — a security feature that’s been employed at many nearby districts’ schools. It would require visitors to step into the main office before accessing student areas. But it’s a balancing act, Cremascoli said — heightening security without sacrificing flexibility. “We don’t want to create a system where it’s too difficult for a student to get to the main office,” she said. The locked vestibule will take longer to implement. At some buildings in particular, it would require a considerable change to the layout. The board will likely revisit it sometime during the next school year, Cremascoli said.

DOWNERS GROVE — Downers Grove School District 58 is planning a number of new security measures — including a camera and buzzer system at each school house — for as soon as next school year. But any new steps would be just one facet of a broad approach to school safety, district and emergency officials said as they laid out the changes during a community safety meeting last week. District 58 called for the meeting soon after the Newtown, Conn., elementary school shooting in December. Officials regularly reassess the district’s emergency preparedness, Superintendent Kari Cremascoli said at the time, but they wanted to involve parents in the discusMatthew Piechalak – mpiechalak@shawmedia.com sion.

trict’s existing safety plan and the extensive preparation and drills that go into it. About 50 parents and faculty attended the meeting at Village Hall, and district administrators also discussed changes on the horizon. Immediately after the Newtown tragedy, the district introduced a policy to keep the front door at all school buildings locked during the day. Before December, it remained open while all other exterior doors remained locked. But it was a quick fix. Visitors now must ring a doorbell for a staff member to come and open the door, and that can become cumbersome, Cremascoli said. On Monday, the District 58 school board approved a plan to install a remote lock and security camera at each district door. It will streamline the process of admitting visitors, and with a direct video feed to Downers Grove police, it will further enhance security, Cremascoli said. The front door features will

Stormwater fee has wide impact on Downers Grove churches, nonprofits “The bottom line is this is not something that’s budgeted for the church. It’s going to come right out of the collections.”

By BRIAN HUDSON bhudson@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE — On Sunday morning, thousands in Downers Grove will dig deep as their church’s collection tray passes. Now, some of that money could be headed to the village’s coffers. A new villagewide fee is billing churches and nonprofits up to several hundred dollars each month. It has made budgeting more difficult, some church leaders say, and it could force them to cut back on charitable efforts. This year, Downers Grove introduced a stormwater utility that charges property owners directly to pay for stormwater sewer projects. Previously, those projects — such as replacing a stormwater detention basin — were funded by village property taxes. For most property owners, the change is close to costneutral; the village cut property taxes nearly $2 million this year to account for the separate fee. But for property-owning nonprofits, which are exempt from property taxes, it is an entirely new expense — one that many are having trouble budgeting for. “I recognize everybody’s got challenging times, but we literally budget down to the penny,” said Kristi Landorf, CEO of Little Friends Inc., a nonprofit that houses children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. “I mean, my staff could tell you what we spend on velcro.” The monthly stormwater fee is based on the amount of impervious area on each property, including roofs, decks, parking lots and driveways. Most single-family parcels will pay between $6.30 and $12.60 a month. For all other properties, the cost is $8.40 for every 3,300 square feet of impervious area. For instance, a one-acre asphalt parking lot costs $111 a month.

More online For a complete list of nonprofits affected by the stormwater fee, visit www.mysuburbanlife.com/downersgrove. There are about three dozen property-owning nonprofits in the village, most of them churches. On average, the stormwater utility will cost the nonprofits about $160

per month — roughly $1,950 per year, according to village records. But some of the churches and nonprofits on larger parcels are paying much more.

First United Methodist is paying about $200 a month — more than $2,400 a year. St. Mary of Gostyn Catholic Parish owes $370 per month for the church and school, which comes out to $4,435 a year. But the largest burden by far is on Marquette Manor Baptist Church. Between the church, school and parking lot, the monthly bill comes out to $672 — more than $8,000 a year, according to village records. The fund is not just affecting religious organizations. Several other nonprofit agencies are paying considerable fees on their property. The Indian Boundary YMCA is on the hook for $5,342 a year, according to village records. The Avery Coonley School, an independent school for gifted students, is paying $4,868. Little Friends Inc. owns six properties in Downers Grove, including four houses for adults with development disabilities. Altogether, the agency provides housing for

a dozen individuals who are part of the Downers Grove community, Landorf said. “They’re working at your Jewel. They’re going to your church,” she said. Most of the agency’s funding comes from the Illinios Department of Human Services, so Little Friends Inc. has already had to weather budget cuts and late payments from the state. “When you add another $4,000 to the mix, that’s a lot,” Landorf said. For much of last year, the village ran a campaign to make property owners aware of the new stormwater fee before it went into effect. But now that the first bills are going out this month, many nonprofits are having sticker shock. “The bottom line is this is not something that’s budgeted for the church,” said Joe Sterner, a member of the Buildings and Grounds Committee at Divine Savior Catholic Church, which owes $4,536 annually, according to village records. “It’s going to come right out of the collections,” Sterner said. Last month, three pastors approached the village board to appeal for some kind of exemption. Dan Martinson, pastor at Hobson Road Community Church, said the fee feels like a tax by another name. The $2,217 his church is being

charged each year is close to half what his congregation donated to the benevolence fund last year — which covers much of the church’s local charity efforts — he said. The new costs are not enough to force church leaders to pick up and move, they say, but it could force them to make cuts on the services they provide. Mayor Martin Tully was receptive to the church leaders’ concerns, but he noted that village leaders discussed the effect on nonprofits last year before they approved the stormwater utility. And, he said, all properties benefit from projects that cut down on flooding. “The reality is rainwater doesn’t make any distinction between a faith-based property and a non-faith-based property,” Tully said. Still, village officials scheduled a closeddoor meeting this week to hear more on the church leaders’ concerns. Downers Grove’s stormwater fee is the first of its kind in the county, and officials have already showed some flexibility. Property owners can reduce their fee through credits and incentives. Installing a rain barrel, for instance, earns a $25 one-time credit. “We’ve only just started it,” Mayor Martin Tully told the church pastors at the January meeting. “Whether there may be adjustments, tweaks and modifications is premature to say. … But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t possibilities where that might occur.”

DOWNERS GROVE — The Grove Players, Downers Grove’s community theater troupe, is bringing the story of corporate greed in small-town New England to the stage this weekend. “Other People’s Money” wraps up its two-weekend run with three shows Friday through Sunday at the Lincoln Center, 935 Maple Ave. The 1989 Off-Broadway play tells the story of “a takeover of a small New England manufacturer that pits the firm’s patriarch against a Wall Street insider for whom money is the ultimate seduction.” The show will be performed at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets cost $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and $10 for students. For more information, or to reserve tickets, go to www. groveplayers.org or call 630-4153682. Tickets are also available at Consider It Done, 5133 Main St. The Grove Players will finish their season with “Cabaret” opening April 19.

• SECURITY Continued from page 7 District officials noted that the front door changes were only a superficial safety measure. Much more work goes into planning among faculty and with police and fire officials for all kinds of emergencies. At last week’s meetings, many parents posed questions about specific safety concerns. Parent Lisa Szostak asked how the district conducts lockdowns at its one-room schoolhouses like Belle Aire and El Sierra elementary schools. Lt. Mike Willison of Downers Grove police replied that officials could not reveal specifics

in the emergency plan, but, he said, officials have a well-rehearsed procedure in place. One parent asked for officials’ opinion on the idea of arming teachers or officials in schools. Police Chief Robert Porter discounted the effectiveness of that measure. He recalled September 1993, when a 17-year-old Downers Grove South High School student was shot to death after a home football game. Porter was the police counselor at South at the time. “We had armed police officers all over that campus, and someone was still shot and killed,” Porter said. One of the overreaching messages of the community

forum was for parents as well as the district to make security a priority. “We believe that safety and security truly is everyone’s responsibility,” Cremascoli said. Richard Samonte, a retired O’Neal Middle School teacher and a former member of the District 58 school board, commended the officials for holding the meeting, but he questioned the timing. “Please don’t take this as criticism — this is a presentation that probably should have been done in September,” Somanto said, adding, “I wonder how many of us would be here in September if Newtown hadn’t happened.”

DOWNERS GROVE — Downers Grove may be one of the friendliest communities in the country, at least according to one national magazine, and now village leaders want to get the word out about it. Last week, village officials unveiled a logo promoting last year’s Forbes Magazine article that listed Downers Grove among “America’s Friendliest Towns.” The logo can be used by all local businesses, civic organizations and governmental bodies, according to a statement from the village. The December article based its rankings on a town’s amount of open spaces, strength of the downtown and number of community events. Downers Grove came in at No. 8, the only town in Illinois on the list. The new logo was designed by the Downers Grove Park Dis-

Kindness comes back to AmVets caller

District 99 pursues equity in academic achievement Our community has so much to celebrate when it comes to our high schools. North High and South High in Downers Grove are two of the highest quality schools in the state, and our students continuously outperform national and state academic averages. We are proud but also inspired to work even harder. We know that averages don’t reflect every student’s performance. In particular, we recognize that when it comes to the academic performance of our minority students, much work remains to be done. Of the more than 5,100 students enrolled in our district, 10 percent are African-American and another 10 percent are Hispanic. Whether looking at gradepoint averages, the ACT or other standardized test scores, we see a disparity in how well our minority students perform compared with the general student population. We are committed to eliminate these gaps in achievement, guided by our mission to help all students reach their full potential. Research proves that students whose parents are actively involved in their school achieve higher academic success, regardless of the family’s economic situation. To cultivate a stronger relationship with our minority families, last spring we held a

Good luck to the Dazzlers at the 2013 U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships. Downers Grove will host a stormwater education workshop at the Lincoln Center, 935 Maple Ave., at 7 p.m. Feb. 21. The goal of the event is to educate residents about water conservation strategies, stormwater management and the different types of incentives Downers Grove property owners can employ to reduce their stormwater utility fee. Jim Kleinwachter of the Conservation Foundation will be a featured speaker.

To the Editor: My friend Mary has been calling people and asking for donations for AmVets for more than 20 years. She recently received a surprise call from her boss. Mary’s boss wanted to tell her some news that would make her very sad and yet very proud. One of the ladies she had called for more than 10 years had passed away, and her daughter thought it would only be right to let Mary know. She wanted to thank Mary since she knew how much she had truly cared about her mom. She asked if they could relay the message to Mary. It was this expression of thanks that meant so much! Mary was so shocked. Never in all the years that she has been a caller for AmVets had anyone ever called her to let her know someone had died. Many times the phone just rings and rings without an answer. Mary wonders if the person is all right. At other times the phone number is disconnected. In Mary’s mind, she thinks that maybe that person has passed or just moved away, but she really never knows for sure ... See LETTERS, page 14

DOWNERS GROVE — Advocate Health Care, the system that includes Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, is moving its headquarters and about 600 jobs to Downers Grove this spring. Advocate officials announced Friday they will take up residence at Highland Landmark I, a seven-story building at 3075 Highland Parkway — near 31st Street and Highland Avenue and just north of the hospital, according to a news release. Advocate is consolidating support centers in Oak Brook and Park Ridge into 3 1/2 stories of the building. It’s a reduction in square footage, but officials highlighted the positives in the move. “Leaders say the new open environment is ideal for creat-

ing more collaboration,” the release stated. “Advocate says Downers Grove is also an ideal location because of the strong relationships built with the village over the years, primarily through Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital.” In the news release, Mayor Martin Tully said village leaders were “honored that the state’s largest healthcare system has selected our community for their new headquarters.” The move is expected to be finished by late spring. Advocate Health Care is also one of the largest healthcare systems in the Midwest, with more than 250 sites of care and a dozen major hospitals, including Chicago’s Illinois Masonic Medical Center and an Advocate Children’s Hospital in both Oak Lawn and Park Ridge.

Developer scraps plans for senior care facility By BRIAN HUDSON bhudson@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE — Plans for a senior care facility in southern Downers Grove have been withdrawn, the village announced late Friday. A developer had hoped to erect a three-story, 120-unit facility on three lots at 63rd

Street and Lyman Avenue, but the plan hit a snag during a village Plan Commission meeting last month. Residents brought attention to a private land agreement that said the lots in the subdivision could only be used for single-family residences. The village directed the developers, Delta Development, to either negotiate a

Continued from page 12 This particular lady, whose first name Mary had just discovered, was Delores. Mary would make the call to her each month, and each time she was able to get something together to donate along with the help of her daughters. Delores experienced many different illnesses but always seemed to bounce back. Mary allowed her time to talk while she listened, although a bit out of breath. She encouraged her, and that made life just a little bit easier. Once again, a friendship was strengthened. Looking back, my friend asked herself, what could she have said differently if she had known it was her very last call? She would listen and wish her well and that is all. Her love was apparent in the sound of her voice through the phone lines. That expression was all her older friend wanted to know anyway!

McCauley was taken to the hospital and has since recovered from his injuries.

After the shooting, prosecutors reportedly considered a count of attempted murder, but charges were not filed.

February is Pet Dental Health Month! Animal Care and Reproductive Services, LLC takes your dog’s and cat’s teeth very seriously! Did you know that dogs and cats should not have “doggie” or “kitty” breath? Did you know that bad breath can be a sign of gingivitis and other problems with your animal’s oral health? A healthy mouth is important to maintain a healthy dog or cat. When your pet’s teeth accumulate a lot of tartar, the tarter provides a perfect place for bacteria to grow. As the bacteria on your pet’s teeth and gums grow, the gums become irritated and they allow the bacteria to get into your pet’s body through the gaps created between the gums and teeth, just like in people! Once that gross bacteria has gained entrance into your pet’s body, it can settle in various organs, like the heart or the kidney, and cause greater problems with your pet’s health. Because of this, dental health is especially important in older pets, or pets with other health concerns.

Bring in this coupon to receive

$10.00 OFF

your pet’s dental exam!

Daily brushing will help reduce tartar and bacterial accumulation and gingivitis, however, like people, your pet needs a trip to his or her dentist for a thorough teeth and gum cleaning that brushing cannot provide. ACRS ofers full dental health services. We have a state of the art ultrasonic dental scaler, much like your dentist uses on you. We follow each scaling with a thorough polishing and then inish your pet’s dental cleaning with a special sealant to help prevent accumulation of tartar and harmful bacteria. Schedule an appointment today so we can check your pet’s teeth and let you know if it is time for your dog or cat to have a dental cleaning! If you schedule an exam for February 18, 2013, Dental Health Check-up Day, you and your pet will receive a free dental health git with the exam*! *while supplies last

Pigeon-racing contest winners Local men react to their awards for having prize pigeons in the 1955 Downers Grove Pigeon Racing Contest. Shown from left are C. Faber, Donald Kemper, Richard Vodd and Judge Brija. Pigeon racing is the sport of releasing specially trained racing pigeons, which then return to their homes over a carefully measured distance. The time it takes the bird to cover the specified distance is measured, and the bird’s rate of travel is calculated and compared with all of the other pigeons in the race to determine which returned at the highest speed. Pigeon racing requires a specific breed of pigeon bred for the sport known as the “Racing Homer.” Competing pigeons are trained and conditioned for races that vary in distance. Pigeon racing was a popular sport throughout the United States for more than 100 years beginning in the late 1870s. Photo courtesy of the Downers Grove Park District Museum

Music to your ears Vibrant entertainment scene melts winter blues This month’s lineup includes One Night Band and LAVA Rock. And at 8 p.m. most Thursdays, fans can enjoy the sounds of The Pete Ellman Big Band.

By ALLISON HORNE msleditorial@shawmedia.com Winter often brings the blues, but many restaurants and bars in the suburbs are taking a different approach to the word “blues.” Instead of referring to the curl-up-in-bed kind of mood, they’re looking at the art form. Although hibernating might seem like a good option during winter months, it would be a little more fun to grab your dancing shoes and gravitate to the hot spots around town that host live music weekly. The suburbs often sit in the shadow of Chicago’s impressive music scene, but there are plenty of local venues that are starting to emerge as hubs for up-andcoming musicians. From rock ‘n’ roll to country, folk and even DJs, here are some of the suburban spots worth checking out.

CABANA CHARLEY’S Where: 6315

Chris T offers music every Thursday night to go hand-in-hand with $5 signature martinis and half-price appetizers from 4 to 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. to closing. Every Friday and Saturday, DJs control the music starting at 10 p.m.

See the comedy What: First Folio Theatre presents “Jeeves Takes a Bow,” based on P.G. Wodehouse characters Where: Mayslake Peabody Estate, 31st Street and Route 83, Oak Brook When: 8 p.m. Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays; 3 p.m. Sundays; plus some added matinees and Sunday nights until March 3 How much: $26 to $37; 630-986-8067, www. firstfolio.org Christian Gray (as Bertie, from left), Kevin McKillip (Binky), Jennifer Shine (Ruby), Jim McCance (Jeeves), David Rice (Knuckles McCanne) and Lydia Berger Gray (Vivienne) star in the witty comedy “Jeeves Takes a Bow.” Photo courtesy of Stefani Foster LaBrecque

Stylish comedy By RENEE TOMELL rtomell@shawmedia.com Fans of the P.G. Wodehouse characters Jeeves and Wooster have a new plot to look forward to, with the third installment by First Folio Theatre in Oak Brook. David Rice of Clarendon Hills, who co-founded the troupe with his wife, Director Alison Vesely, plays a villain in the piece and previews what’s in store. Technical Director Kyle Gettelman of Warrenville also shares his role in bringing the comedy to the stage at the Mayslake Peabody Estate.

How many ‘Jeeves’ shows have you presented, David? This is the third adaptation that Margaret Raether has done of stories by P.G. Wodehouse. She writes them for her own theater company in Rockford. We are lucky enough to snag the Chicago premiere in each case, and get to put them on right after they do. It’s another delightful, lighthearted, silly comedy. It’s family

friendly — (with) no language issues and no adult content of any sort. It’s a great way to get a much-needed laugh in the middle of winter. They are among (our) best-selling shows.

Explain the interplay of the main characters. The basic heart of the Jeeves and Wooster stories is that Bertram Wooster is a complete and total twit, an airhead as we might say in modern parlance. His valet Jeeves is the perfect companion to keep him out of trouble and to manage to extract him from any difficulties he gets into. The series (is about) Bertie getting into trouble, and Jeeves finding a clever way to get him out of it.

You’re making a rare appearance on stage. What’s your role in the show? I play a New York mobster just at the end of Prohibition, named Knuckles McCanne. With the assistance of one of his best friends, Binky, Bertie

Bertie to ask Jeeves to save the day in latest adventure at First Folio

manages to run afoul of this mobster and is in fear of losing his life.

The same actors are returning in the leads? This is the third time we’ll have the great good fortune of (featuring) Jim McCance, who is marvelous as Jeeves, and Christian Gray, who is picture perfect as Bertie Wooster. We’re also lucky to be bringing back Kevin McKillip, who has played a series of Bertie’s dimwitted friends. Kevin finds a different way to make each (unique).

What is your primary role as technical director, Kyle? Generally speaking, technical directors are the ones responsible for the execution of the scenic design. One of the things that is unique and fun about theater is that everything is always a little different. One show, we’ll be fabricating something out of steel, so it can be rigid and structural so people can climb on it. The next

show, it’s made of fabric or a lightweight material purely as a visual aesthetic.

What have you created for this show? ‘Jeeves Takes a Bow’ is a comedy (with) a pretty standard, realistic interior. (Yet,) the whole look of the set is intended to be one that is sort of comical … a space that is over the top. There’s a huge amount of trim work. (It’s) really the detail that counts — that all the different elements (are) put up cleanly. We create a palette for the actors to do … their craft.

Besides your graduate training, where did you pick up your knack for all these skills? I grew up on a small horse farm, and have been building things and working with tools my entire life. My day job … (is theater department) technical director at North Central College in Naperville.

Bill Ackerman – backerman@shawmedia.com

Zen master By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com Summing up Cullen Cummings’ approach on the wrestling mat takes just one word. Zen. “Don’t let any match get in my head,” Cummings said. “Stay calm, don’t blow the match up too big, just wrestle my match and go one match at a time. That’s all you can do.” It’s worked for the Downers Grove North senior this postseason, especially Saturday at the Class 3A Shepard sectional. He outscored his four opponents 45-8 to take top honors, earning his first sectional title and third trip to state. He was in control of the sec-

Cummings is one of the top wrestlers in the state at 138 pounds and is certainly in the title hunt, but all he’s worried about now is a solid week of preparation and his first state match against Lockport’s Dominic Naso. Having been on the

Clear-headed Cummings wins first sectional title, returns to state

state’s biggest stage before is an added boost of confidence. “It kind of gives me an edge a little bit. Some of the kids I wrestle, they haven’t been in the same situations I have,” Cummings said. “I just tell myself, I’ve been in bigger matches, I’ve been to the state finals. I have that experience and I have to go out there and get it now. Wrestling in front of all those people doesn’t faze me too much anymore. I mean, this is my third time down there so I feel pretty comfortable down there.” North head coach Chris McGrath put it even more succinctly. “Being on the podium last year, he knows what it takes to win (at state),” McGrath said. Familiar surroundings at

state will put Cummings at ease. Sowilldrillingagainstusualsparring partners Mike Gastaldello and Nick Bonomo in the week leading up to state. McGrath said Cummings is wrestling well at the right time of the season, but what’s most impressive to the coach is his mindset. “He’s trusting himself. He works hard, he’s a great athlete, and now he’s just competing at a high level,” McGrath said. “He’s not wrestling for a state title, he’s not wrestling to impress somebody, he’s just wrestling to compete, and that’s freedom to compete at a very high level.” Gastaldello (152), Bonomo (160), Pat Walker (106), Straw Sopcic (120), Jake Lommatzsch (182) and Edwin Phillips (285) also competed at the sectional

for the Trojans, but did not earn state berths. They will instead cheer on Cummings, one state match at a time. “The mindset going in, I just have to be confident,” Cummings said. “I think I’ve established myself as one of the top guys in the state at my weight, and nobody’s undefeated at 138 right now, so I just have to go out there and get it, just like last year. Even though I lost in the finals (last year), nobody expected me to make it there. I just went out there and wrestled. “I’m not thinking so much in my matches. I’m just letting it flow. Whatever happens, happens. That’s a really big confidence-builder when you keep your emotions out of it and you can just focus on the match.”

Mustang wrestling trio books state berths Mustang qualifiers

By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com Alex Anaya will have a different perspective on this year’s state wrestling meet. An alternate at the state tournament last winter as he watched older brother Willie Anaya place fourth, the Downers Grove South senior will take part in the action after he earned a state berth at Saturday’s Class 3A Shepard sectional. A 3-2 win in the backdraw semifinals secured his spot at state, where he hopes to continue a trend he had at the sectional. “I’m definitely doing well on my takedowns right now,” he said. “I got takedowns on every guy (today), so I hope to keep that up.” He also has a plan of attack for his first state tournament appearance. “Keep confident and keep focused,” he said. “You can’t get out of focus because that’s when things happen.” Anaya won’t be alone on his trip to state. Sophomore Joe Nugent and junior Mike Hobbs will also be on the bus to Assembly Hall in Champaign when the tournament begins Thursday.

Nugent lost his first match of the sectional, but then won four straight in the backdraw for his first state berth, which came as a bit of a surprise. “I feel really good,” Nugent said. “I didn’t expect to make it this far. I thought I’d be stopped at regionals or something because it was really tough, but I pushed through it.” Hobbs was in the final live match of the sectional, going through three rounds of overtime to earn a 1-0 win in the third-place match at 285 pounds. Hobbs’ only misstep of the sectional tournament was a quarterfinal loss to Bill Ackerman – backerman@shawmedia.com Brian Allen, the eventual champion from Hinsdale Central. Hobbs won Downers Grove South’s Joe Nugent (top) wins his third-place match against Sandburg’s three straight after the defeat and heads Jake Vales at sectionals Saturday in Palos Heights. to state with a 40-5 mark.

Mustangs celebrate Hall of Fame night with win SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA It was already a festive atmosphere as Downers Grove South welcomed seven members to its athletic Hall of Fame before the boys basketball game Saturday night. There was reason to celebrate after the game as well, as the Mustangs topped a tough Warren team 42-37 in a non-conference battle. South improved to 13-9 overall as Jordan Cannon scored a teamhigh 14 points. The win over Warren was the second solid performance in as many nights for the Mustangs, who rode solid defense to a 47-39 win over West Suburban Gold win over Willowbrook. Leading just 18-17 at the half, South outscored Willowbrook 17-4 in the third quarter and then fended off a comeback effort in the fourth quarter to improve to 7-3 in the WSG. A 14-2 Willowbrook run in

the fourth quarter cut South’s lead to 37-35. The Mustangs led 42-39 with a little over two minutes left in the game, but closed it out by going 5-of-6 at the free throw line. Senior Robert Mara scored all of his team-high 12 points in the second half and very nearly had a triple-double with seven rebounds and nine blocked shots.

Downers North boys On the other side of town, Downers Grove North played a pair of close games over the weekend. The Trojans dropped a pair of West Suburban Silver games to Glenbard West (47-41 Friday night) and York (61-57 Saturday night). York led 26-16 late in the second quarter Saturday, but the the Trojans (10-14 overall, 1-10 WSS) battled back to cut the deficit to 59-57 with less than 10 seconds to play, but the Dukes’ David Cohn drained a pair of free throws to seal the win.

On the Trojans’ senior night Saturday, senior Nick North had a stellar game with 26 points and seven rebounds.

Downers North girls When the Trojans hosted Addison Trail in a West Suburban Conference crossover game Feb. 6, the Blazers pulled out a 44-40 win. North exacted some revenge Monday night with a big 67-48 win over AT in the opening game of the Class 4A Elk Grove regional. With the win, the Trojans moved on to face No. 3 seed Wheaton North in a regional semifinal Tuesday.

Downers South girls The Mustangs were set to open the playoffs Tuesday against regional host Elk Grove. A win would send them to the regional championship game at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Who: Notre Dame vs. Miami (Ohio); Minnesota vs. Wisconsin What: Men’s college hockey When: Noon and 3 p.m. Sunday Where: Soldier Field

Despite the uniqueness of the situation, Herr and his Irish teammates are taking it all in stride. Before the puck drops Sunday, the Irish must travel to Oxford, Ohio, for a Friday night road game against the Redhawks, who sit atop the Central Collegiate Hockey Association standings, three points ahead of Notre Dame. The Irish would love nothing more than a sweep of the games to get back in the CCHA driver’s seat. “It could be a distraction if you let it be, but our team is pretty focused,” DiPauli said. “We know what we have to do to come out of it with three points. It’s a big game for us.”

“Right now our focus is on Miami as a whole,” Herr said. “We want to beat them whether it’s an outdoor game or not. We have to stay focused. After Friday’s game, that’s when we’ll worry about the outdoor game and what the environment is going to be like.” After Friday’s game against Miami, the Irish will arrive in Chicago Saturday and get some practice time on the outdoor ice in preparation for the game. “It’s going to be a lot different,” Russo said. “We don’t know what to expect Sunday, but we get outside Saturday, and I think that’s all we need.” Russo said he’s seen a Bears game at Soldier Field before. Herr saw a couple of football games there as a kid. DiPauli has never been there. All are excited for the game. “I’ve never played in an outdoor game, so that’s going to be a first,” DiPauli said. “I’m very, very excited about it. It sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Tom DiPauli of Woodridge and Notre Dame are set to play outdoor hockey at Soldier Field on Sunday. “I’m definitely excited,” Russo said. “We have a bunch of guys from Chicago, and we’re all definitely excited for it. It’s cool to play outside. It’s pretty unique.” Herr has been trying to get a feel for outdoor hockey by watching some footage from the NHL Winter Classic series

that has been taking place for several years. “I have no idea what to expect,” Herr said. “I keep watching the Winter Classic to try and get an idea of what it’s like. The ice might or the weather might not be ideal, but the energy is going to be huge for both teams.”

Sunday’s clash with Miami (Ohio) isn’t just another game for Notre Dame’s men’s hockey team. It won’t be like any game the Irish have played before. “I played some pond hockey when I was a kid, but I’ve never been a part of anything like this,” said Sam Herr of Hinsdale. Herr was speaking of Sun- Thomas day’s outdoor DiPauli game at Soldier Field, the first of a college hockey doubleheader that also sees Minnesota face Wisconsin in the afternoon. The Notre Dame-Miami game will have some local flavor. Herr, Thomas DiPauli (Woodridge) and Robbie Russo (Westmont) play for Notre Dame while Elmhurst’s John Doherty is a freshman at Miami.

The provision applies to certain evaluation and management (E & M) services and vaccine administration services delivered by physicians with a specialty designation of family medicine, general internal medicine or pediatric medicine. • The departmeÿt aÿticipates ameÿdiÿg the Illiÿois Title XIX State plaÿ to calculate the iÿpatieÿt paymeÿts for government-owned hospitals by using an inflator that will stabilize the amount of federal funds received for Medicaid services provided at those hospitals.
