Kindergarten program celebrates 100 days VIEWS Kari Miller Maggie Lesk has wanted to teach young children for as long as she can remember. This year, she fulfilled that goal when she became a teacher for the Batavia Park District’s Kindergarten Enrichment Program. Lesk received a degree in elementary education with a minor in special education in 2011 from Aurora University. She had been a guest teacher for East Aurora School District 131 and a student teacher at Hoover Wood Elementary School. When Lesk saw the park district sought teachers for the Kindergarten Enrichment Program, she knew she had to apply. “I knew the program would be the perfect fit for me,” Lesk said, “I am able to work in the same elementary school I grew up in and work for the park district where I was a gymnast for eight years. Both played a major role in shaping my education.” On Feb. 5, the program celebrated 100 days. Lesk took it upon herself to develop a lesson plan dedicated to those days. “We started the day with an activity about what we wished we could have 100 of,” she said. “The answers varied from penguins to french fries to 100 Miss Lesks!” The children spent the day walking 100 steps, doing

While most of the activities were fun and lighthearted, the central theme was learning. “All afternoon we discussed 100 things we had learned in class so far,” Lesk said. “I can’t believe how much the students have progressed from the beginning of the year. Each student is now reading and taking in new information every day. I’m so

excited to see where they will be in May.” The program has been designed to complement the half-day kindergarten program so parents have the option to provide their child with a full day of learning. It weaves academic concepts – such as literacy, science, mathematics and reasoning – into recreational, artistic and musical activities. The goal of the program, according to recreation supervisor Rachel Schmit, is for

children to develop essential skills that build the foundation for lifelong learning within positive social, emotional and recreational experiences. Schmit is very happy with the first 100 days and sees value in the program. “This first year of the Kindergarten Enrichment Program has been nothing short of amazing for us,” Schmit said. “As with any new endeavor, there has been a learning curve, but with each new discovery or challenge we have seized it as an opportunity to make a positive change.” The success of the program isn’t just obvious to teachers and park district staff but to parents and Batavia School District 101 administrators, as well. During the first 100 days, Schmit has received accolades and compliments about the teachers and the program. “I couldn’t be more pleased with the enrichment staff. They have done a remarkable job in the classroom, and I hear about it every week,” Schmit said. “With each visit to the classroom, I observe students that are enthusiastic and happy to be where they are!” For information about the Batavia Park District’s Kindergarten Enrichment Program, visit www.bataviaparks.org or call 630-406-5282.

Preservationists ask to salvage items from Coultrap By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com

Kane County Chronicle file photo

The Geneva School District 304 board recently voted to tear down the Coultrap facility.

Coultrap remembered at Geneva History Center By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – When the original Coultrap building opened as Geneva Community High School in 1923, it had a principal, nine teachers, one secretary, two or three telephones and room for 300 students. It cost $205,000 to build and was thought to be among the best facilities in Illinois, said Mary Dolan, educator at the Geneva History Center. Coultrap also served as a junior high, middle school and elementary school. Now, the school board has voted to raze the 90-year-old building because it has become too expensive to keep or maintain, and those who taught or went to school there shared their recollections. Nearly 50 people packed the meeting room Tuesday at the Geneva History Center for “Memories of Coultrap,” part of the Brown Bag Lunch series. “The building was a source of pride for Geneva residents,” said Dolan, reading from various articles of the day. “The school boasted a fine gymnasium, an athletic field of nine or 10 acres considered to be one of the best football fields in the Fox River Valley.” The building was dedicated

in 1923 with 1,100 people attending. Local newspapers quoted guests about the dedication. “With no wood in the outer construction to rot away, it would seem that a building of this type should never really grow old, but mellow with age,” Dolan quoted one observer. It was converted to a junior high and in the 1960s and named in honor of Harry M. Coultrap, who served as superintendent, teacher and substitute teacher in Geneva from 1912 to 1950. Kathy Krispen, who was hired to teach language arts at Coultrap Middle School in 1972, recalled the principal taking her to a room with an old wooden desk. “I taught in nine different rooms,” Krispen said. “There is hardly a space in that building that I am not familiar with.”

She recalled a comment from a former board member, that he would “miss the sound of children playing.” “Many children walked home through the neighborhoods on an early dismissal day, running downtown to have lunch with their friends,” Krispen said. “That is truly Geneva.” Maureen Radecki, who attended Coultrap from 1971 to 1974, recalled having a piñata in Spanish class where students were blindfolded and whacked at it with a baseball bat. Radecki took a swing and it went flying up into the light fixtures, shattering glass all over. “We had to evacuate the classroom,” Radecki said. “We never did piñatas since, and it was my fault.”

GENEVA – Geneva School District 304 board officials were receptive to hearing about proposals from a resident regarding the safeguarding and preservation of salvageable materials from the Coultrap facility. The board voted to raze the old school, which opened in 1923, because it is too expensive to maintain. Coultrap has served as high school, junior high, middle and elementary school. It was closed as an attendance center in 2009. Colin and Glorianne Campbell had first spoken out against demolishing the school. But this week, Colin Campbell asked board members to consider forming a committee to create a list of things to be salvaged. School board members said they were interested in more information. Campbell proposed forming a committee including school board members, the Geneva History Center and the community “to go through the building in great detail and salvage everything that we can that might be a memento for the history center or whatever purpose we can salvage it. We don’t know yet.” Campbell said the committee would take photos of everything, make a list and

talk it over with school officials. “And then – before they demolish it – take out everything we can,” Campbell said. “The second thing would be to build a permanent memorial on the property after the building comes down.” The memorial would honor the Coultrap building and Geneva’s late superintendent, Harry Coultrap, for whom the building was named, Campbell said. Over the Peyton Street entrance, cement blocks spell out “Coultrap Middle School.” “Salvage the blocks that say ‘Coultrap School’ and use those, along with salvaged bricks, in a memorial,” Campbell said. “And have plaques on that to commemorate both the school and Harry Coultrap.” The memorial would be structured on a diagonal on a corner of the property so it will not get in the way if officials want to rebuild or put in a parking lot, Campbell said. Campbell also is requesting to work with the high school’s video class and use footage taken at Tuesday’s Memories of Coultrap program and create a 45-minute documentary. “The kids could go through and video all the interior spaces, and then we could do cuts in and out of people talking about Coultrap,” Campbell said.

Four candidates vie for Village Board Hopefuls share opinions on proposed Elburn Station project By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com ELBURN – Two incumbents and two newcomers are running for three open seats on the Elburn Village Board in the spring. Michael Rullman, Patricia Schuberg and incumbents Ken Anderson and Jeff Walter have filed to run in the April election, and all four weighed in on the proposed Elburn Station development. A fifth candidate, Richard Garcia, filed to be on the ballot, but said earlier this week that he withdrew from the race to spend more time with his family. Incumbent Village President Dave Anderson is running unopposed. Those elected to the board likely will have to make decisions about Elburn Station that Schuberg said could affect generations to come. “We’re setting precedence that we’ll live with for eons forward,” she said. Schuberg has spent 15 years on the village’s plan commission, with six years as the chair of the commission. She said this is her first run for public office. As an appointed commissioner, she voted for the final plat approval when the Elburn Station proposal first came forward.

In the proposal, land owned by developer ShoDeen would be used for an extension of Anderson Road, including a bridge that would cross the Union PaKen cific tracks. Anderson Included in the proposed project are multiunit rental properties near the railroad tracks. Rullman Michael s a i d he has Rullman never held public office. He said he wanted to run for the April election because he sees a lot of vacancies in Patricia the downtown Schuberg area, and he hopes to help control village costs and keep taxes low. He’s against the proposed Elburn Station, Jeff but he said he Walter does see the advantages to going forward with the project. “Anderson bridge would

be great, but there’s not enough money to do the engineering independent of [the Elburn Station project],” he said. “It has pluses and minuses like everything else. Will it fit in the community? Probably.” Schuberg said she believes housing and economic development are among the most important issues in Elburn. She said she wishes the Elburn Station project wasn’t connected with the proposed bridge because she believes people would look at the project differently. “I have always felt, let’s get the bridge in. We may be looking at this development entirely different once we have this bridge in place. It’s a very significant factor,” she said. “I really think we need to look at development separately from the bridge. It’s going to inform the subdivision different once it’s in place instead of what looks like, right now, a blank canvas.” Anderson, who is finishing his first four-year term, said he wanted to run again because he wants to implement the village’s land-use plan and continue to be a fiscally conservative voice on the board. He said there are parts of the Elburn Station proposal

And if you look at predictions, it will,” he said. “We need secondary access over the rail line. I think it’s going to be a good development because it’s creating a transit-related development. Families can live with one car, hop on the train and go to work.” Walter, who has served on the board about four years,

said he wants to build the village’s capital accounts and implement a capital replacement plan for potential expenses that come with aging infrastructure and equipment. He said he was the only person who voted against the Elburn Station preliminary plan because he was concerned about density, particularly building 17 housing units per acre. While he has his concerns, he said he believes it will be successful if Elburn grows at the right speed. “I’m not against it by any means. I think it’s a good development,” he said.

Elburn Station vote likely by month’s end ShoDeen president on board with plans, adds exception for commercial development By AL LAGATTOLLA alagattolla@shawmedia.com ELBURN – With developer ShoDeen on board with Village Board members’ changes to the proposed Elburn Station project, a decision on the plans likely will come by the end of the month. Village President Dave Anderson said he will seek to designate the Committee of the Whole meeting Feb. 25 “as a full board special meeting for one purpose,” which would be a vote on the annexation of the property needed for the development. Elburn Station would bring 2,200 homes into the village over 20 years, and board members have been hammering out details the past few weeks, including limiting the number of rental units,

sharing the cost of a planned pedestrian bridge and establishing that ShoDeen could not start work on a new phase of the project until the previous one was essentially complete. The board has felt urgency because the project is part of a plan that calls for the extension of Anderson Road and construction of a bridge that will provide a crossing of the train tracks. Federal funds are tied to the project – planned for land owned by ShoDeen – and County Board officials have expressed concern that the funding could be lost if the board didn’t move forward with its plans. Dave Patzelt, president of ShoDeen, appeared at Monday’s meeting and showed board members revised plans for Elburn Station. He said

the revisions essentially met the village’s suggestions. ShoDeen would limit the number of rental units to 400, with the option to add 200 more as long as they are targeted to residents 55 and older. ShoDeen also established the cost of a planned pedestrian bridge at $900,000. Patzelt said ShoDeen would work together with the village to seek grants for the project, and that the parties would split the remaining costs, up to a maximum contribution of $450,000 by the developer. Officials say the pedestrian bridge will be needed to connect the new development to the existing town. According to the plans, the bridge would begin at the corner of East Nebraska Street and South Third Street, or a “sim-

ilar location,” and end at the Village Hall parking lot. Also, Patzelt said ShoDeen would not begin a new phase until at least 80 percent of public improvements of the preceding phase were complete, but he added an exception for commercial development. The discussion took place even though board member Jeff Walter was absent. Anderson said Walter was ill. Past discussions on the subject had not taken place when any board member had been missing, but Monday’s

session was a response from ShoDeen to alterations requested by the board. Village officials had been poised to vote on the development last year, but board members voted to table the discussion in an effort to work out details. Trustee Bill Grabarek, who initiated the vote to table last year, said the board is making progress with the revisions. But he said he wants to take a closer look at the revisions, and he encouraged other board members to “mull it over.”

ARSENIO G. SALA Born: May 24, 1934; in Pozzuoli, Italy Died: Feb. 5, 2013; in Sycamore GENEVA – Arsenio G. Sala, 78, of Geneva, passed away Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013, at Kindred Hospital in Sycamore, surrounded by his wife and friends. He was born May 24, 1934, in Pozzuoli, Italy, the son of Amadeo and Laura Quaranta Sala. Raised in Italy, Arsenio received his education at the Ecole superieure de commerce in Neuchatel, Switzerland, and the City of London College in London. His studies were in commerce and business management. He also held a degree in community development from the University of Missouri, Columbia, Mo. He had a love for his country, the world and humanity, and thus began a long career, working from 1958 to 1976 for various international world agencies – first as Director for the International Rescue Committee in Rome, Italy, where he dealt with refugee issues; thereafter as Delegue of the League of Red Cross Societies for Algeria and Morocco; then as Community Development Advisor and Deputy Chief of Mission of the United Nations Development Program for the Congo (Zaire);

and thereafter to the Dominican Republic, Coop Rep. of Guyana and Santo Domingo. Ultimately, he settled with his family in Montreal, Canada, where he became Executive Director for the Montreal Council of Social Agencies, and thence Executive Director for NCIC (the National Congress for Italio Canadians). Never one to sit still for long, he became a consultant in his various areas of expertise and finally entered the field of real estate and property management. These endeavors were greatly aided by his command of multiple languages; he was fluent in English, French, Italian and Spanish. His first marriage ended in divorce. In 1999, he moved to Illinois, where he married Christa C. Thurman. In 2003, Arsenio and Christa then moved to Geneva. He became an active supporter and volunteer at the Garfield Farm Museum. Arsenio will be greatly missed by all those whose lives he touched. He was preceded in death by his brother, Emilio; and by his parents. He is survived by his wife, Christa Thurman Sala; son, Pascal Sala and his family; and daughter, Michelle Sala Golarz and her family. Both families reside in Canada. A memorial celebration of Arsenio’s life will be Memorial Day weekend at Garfield Farm Museum. Memorial contributions may be made to Garfield Farm Museum, P.O. Box 403, La Fox, IL 60147.

Some lawmakers won’t forgo state pensions By JONATHAN BILYK jbilyk@shawmedia.com One local state lawmaker has decided to pass up on the state’s pension system. But she might not have company among the legislative delegation in the area. In Illinois, state representatives and state senators in the General Assembly, among other perks, also can participate in a state-subsidized pension system. This legislative pension system allows participating lawmakers to contribute 11.5 percent of their salary, and, depending on their length of service, can convert those contributions into lifetime pensions worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. As Illinois struggles to

reform its public pension systems, a group of state lawmakers opted to forgo participation in the system. Statewide, about two dozen members of the General Assembly passed up the chance to participate. That number, as of this week, includes state Sen. Karen McConnaughay, R-South Elgin. In a prepared statement, McConnaughay, who represents a district that includes western portions of the TriCities and stretches into northern and western Kane County, noted that, after 20 years in elected office in Kane County, including eight years as County Board chairman, she already had accrued a public pension and did not need to amass a second one

funded by taxpayers. But other members of the local delegation to Springfield did not appear to be rushing to join her in that pledge. State Sen. Jim Oberweis, R-Sugar Grove, who represents much of the Tri-Cities as well as southern and western portions of Kane County, declined to state whether he intended to participate in the legislative pension program. When asked directly whether he was participating, Oberweis responded by email that he was “sponsoring legislation to end defined benefit plans for all future members of the General Assembly.” He said under his proposals, lawmakers could participate in “an IRA or 401k-type plan,” rather than a tradition-

al pension. He did not respond to a follow-up question, again asking whether he intended to participate in the pension plan. State Rep. Mike Fortner, RWest Chicago, said he has contributed to the pension system since taking office in 2006 and had “no plan to change at this point.” He also noted his support and sponsorship of a variety of reforms to all of the state’s pension systems, including the legislative program. State Rep. Bob Pritchard, R-Hinckley, said he also intended to continue participating in the pension program. He’s done so since taking office in 2004.

“[Lawmakers] have paid into it like other state employees,” Pritchard said. And he also noted his support for a variety of pension reform proposals, including changing how pensions are calculated, replacing an automatic 3 percent compounding annual increase with a noncompounding escalator tied to the Consumer Price Index, and raising the eligibility age. He said those reforms should apply to all state pensions. State representatives Tim Schmitz, R-Batavia, and Kay Hatcher, R-Yorkville, did not return messages left for them Tuesday.

that Blackberry Bar and Grill’s three machines netted $19,938 in January, a sum that is split up. A company, such as Spoden’s, which maintains the machines, gets 35 percent. The establishment keeps 35 percent. The state gets 25 percent. And the municipality gets 5 percent. Ken Anderson said he didn’t doubt the machines are profitable, but he urged caution. He said the money is distributed, “but is this how we want it to be distributed?” He said that someone who might otherwise go to Jewel “to buy bacon, eggs and bread” now is “putting money into a machine.” “Where does it come down to us helping people make good decisions?” he asked. Village President Dave Anderson said it isn’t up to the board to make such moral decisions. Other board members appeared ready

to explore video gaming, reasoning that if residents wanted to gamble, the machines were available with a short drive. Board member David Gualdoni said those who want to gamble likely already do so. “They’re going to go somewhere else if they want to gamble,” Gualdoni said. He

also said it’s not the village’s problem if someone has a gambling addiction. Ken Anderson said he hoped there would be more discussion and the decision wouldn’t be rushed. “I hope we don’t do this in two weeks. … We didn’t go two weeks in banning it,” he said.

ELBURN – At least one village trustee isn’t sold on legalizing video gaming in Elburn. Ken Anderson raised questions on the topic at Monday night’s Committee of the Whole meeting and urged officials to discuss the issue. The topic was introduced at last week’s Dave Village Board Anderson meeting.Elburn was among the communities that banned video gaming in 2009, after the state gave the green light for establishments with licenses to pour liquor also to apply for as many as five video gaming machines at a site. Recent developments have officials revisiting that deci-

sion – Sugar Grove recently lifted its ban, although there is an advisory referendum on April’s ballot. Video gaming also is allowed in unincorporated areas of Kane County, and one establishment near Elburn, Blackberry Bar and Grill, has machines at its location, just south of Elburn on Route 47. Elburn officials are considering lifting the ban to allow eligible local Ken establishments Anderson to have machines installed. Schmidt’s Towne Tap on Route 47, for example, could be a location. Jay Spoden, president of Tiger Electronics, which installs such machines, was on hand to talk about the possibility. The Illinois Gaming Board report for January shows

OPINIONS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The antithesis of democracy To the Editor: As a longtime observer of Kane County government, I can say with surety that – as long as I’ve been observing the board – sitting board members have always been allowed to fully participate in Executive Committee discussions. Although some recent board members have exercised that right to the point of being reliably tedious, it was their right nonetheless. Under the current committee structure, Executive Committee is the singular place board members can learn about and – if necessary –

question the full workings of the board. For reasons only the current board chairman understands, certain – and only certain – elected officials must now sign up ahead of time to exercise their right to fully represent their constituency. Aside from seeming curiously punitive, this new policy is also a direct affront to freedom of speech, not to mention a very transparent attempt to pit “us against them.” This new policy is the antithesis of democracy and needs to be rescinded immediately.

ANOTHER VIEW

Benedict XVI leaves the papacy much as he found it The WASHINGTON POST In eight years as pope, Benedict XVI’s boldest act may have been his last one. His planned abdication at the end of this month, which took the world and most of the Catholic Church by surprise, would be the first by a pope in nearly 600 years. Although the Vatican said he was not suffering from any life-threatening ailment, the 85-year-old pontiff concluded that he lacked the “strength of mind and body” to carry out his ministry in a world “subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith.” The hallmark of Pope Benedict’s tenure, for better or for worse, was fierce

resistance to those changes. He rejected calls by Catholic progressives for reconsideration of doctrines such as celibacy and the ban on women in the priesthood; and at a time when acceptance of the rights of gays and lesbians is rapidly spreading across the world, he was outspoken in condemning homosexuality as “unnatural” and unacceptable. With sectarian tension growing in Europe as well as the Middle East, he eschewed dialogue with Muslims and infuriated many by quoting a condemnation of Islamic theology as “evil and inhuman.” The pope presided over a faith whose demographic center of gravity has shifted to Latin America, Africa and Asia, yet he chose to focus his

ministry on an attempt to revive Catholicism in Europe, including its most conservative elements. By some important measures, he failed. Church membership continued to decline even in Germany, his native country and the site of his best received tour. In the developing world, once rowing Catholic churches lost ground to other faiths. Pope Benedict’s response to the greatest challenge he faced – the explosion of sexual-abuse scandals in Catholic dioceses around the world – was inadequate. During his visit to the United States in 2008, he met with victims of predatory priests; he later apologized for the crimes and oversaw modest Vatican measures to extend

the statute of limitation for cases and prevent further abuse. But the pope never acted against bishops who covered up crimes, and he never admitted or apologized for his own failures during the years when, as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, he headed up the Vatican body charged with disciplining priests. Some of Pope Benedict’s most important achievements came in response to the backlash triggered by his reactionary acts. Pilloried for having suggested before a tour of AIDS-stricken Africa that the use of condoms “increases the problem,” he later suggested that the use of a condom by an HIV-infected person to avoid infecting a partner could be a positive step. After anger-

ing Jews by rehabilitating a bishop known as a Holocaust denier, the pope prayed at Auschwitz and published a book exonerating the Jewish people for the death of Jesus. Pope Benedict will leave behind a church facing the same debilitating problems that loomed after the death of Pope John Paul II – above all, how to remain relevant to an increasingly secular world and to its own changing membership. This pope’s response was to insist that only uncompromising adherence to past doctrine could preserve the faith. Catholics who seek a different answer will have to hope that the College of Cardinals dominated by the pope’s appointees will choose a more progressive successor.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

BATAVIA – The Batavia Park District and the Batavia Parks Foundation on Monday moved another step closer to renovating the boardwalk at the Batavia Riverwalk. The city’s Historic Preservation Commission approved a certificate of appropriateness for the project. The park district now will submit construction drawings to the city for a building permit. The boardwalk was built by volunteers in the mid-1990s as part of the Batavia Riverwalk. Jim Eby, the district’s director of planning and development, said the well-used boardwalk needed to be replaced. “People say they use the riverwalk the most of any facility we have,” Eby said. He also said the project will make the boardwalk more handicap-accessible.

“The two entrance ramps that come out from the boardwalk where they meet the brick are not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act,” Eby said. To raise money for the $175,000 boardwalk reconstruction project, the Batavia Parks Foundation recently kicked off a “Purchase-APlank” campaign. The foundation hopes to raise $40,000 toward the project. Information can be found at www.purchaseaplank.com or on its Facebook page, Batavia Riverwalk Boardwalk Renovation. The foundation also is seeking volunteer groups of six to 12 adults and skilled people to assist with the demolition and construction of the boardwalk. Volunteers should contact coordinator Sharon Mitchell at smitchell82@comcast.net. The project might get started in April, Eby said.

BATAVIA

Monsignor to leave church By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – After 12 years at Holy Cross Catholic Church, Monsignor Daniel Deutsch is leaving the parish to become the vicar for clergy and vocations for the Diocese of Rockford. Deutsch will leave the church Daniel at the end of Feb- Deutsch ruary and start new responsibilities Feb. 25. He could not be reached for comment Tuesday, but discussed his departure on

the church’s website. “Let me start by saying that the last 12 years have been the best of my priesthood and my life,” Deutsch said in his “From the Pastor’s Desk” column. “The experiences that we have had to draw closer to Christ together have shaped me in ways that I will always marvel at and for which I will always be grateful. I simply have fallen in love with all of you as we have learned to love Jesus more.” In his new job, Deutsch said he will manage the day-to-day needs and issues as they relate to priests and will be responsible for making their assignments to parishes. In addition, he will help the vocation direc-

tor in his work at bringing vocations to the diocese and also will be the pastor at St. Bridget Parish in Loves Park. Along with Deutsch, the Rev. Keith Romke also is leaving the church to become the vocations director for the diocese. “It is a logical and exciting move that makes sense,” Deutsch said. “He is the sensible choice for anyone who has experienced his gifts and enthusiasm for the Lord.” Holy Cross’ new pastor will be Monsignor Aaron Brodeski, who is finishing up his time as vocations director and pastor at St. Mary Catholic Church in Woodstock.

of drug abuse in Kane County and the Chicago area, Kane County Sheriff Pat Perez said. It affects people of all ages, but authorities are “really seeing it take off with younger people,” he said. Teens often take advantage of their parents’ unused medications, such as painkillers prescribed after a surgery or root canal, Perez said. Authorities urge parents to properly dispose of such medications. “If we can as parents not create a situation that would entice someone to abuse prescription meds, we’re ahead of the game,” Perez said. The Kane County Sheriff’s Office, 37W755 Route 38, has a prescription drug dropbox in its lobby, which is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, Perez said. The DEA incinerates the medications.

MAPLE PARK – Today, authorities will arm parents with tools to prevent one of the fastest-rising forms of drug abuse in Kane County – prescription drugs. The Drug Enforcement Administration’s Tactical Diversion Unit will provide a prescription drug presentation at 6:30 p.m. in the Kaneland High School auditorium. All are welcome. Topics expected to be addressed include trends in prescription drug abuse; common sources for acquisition of illegal pharmaceuticals; prescription drug identification; and how to properly dispose of prescription medications. Kaneland School District 302 Superintendent Jeff Schuler said the school’s resource officer identified it as a way to further educate parents about the trend of students using and sharing prescription drugs. “I think it’s a trend all parents need to be aware of,” said Schuler, noting a similar event was at Harter Middle School. Prescription drug abuse is one of the fastest-rising forms

CLASS 4A ST. CHARLES EAST REGIONAL SEMIFINALS

Rubber match set up for title St. Charles East, Geneva win, will play for regional championship By KEVIN DRULEY

Pro basketball Bulls at Boston, 6:30 p.m., CSN The Bulls look to rebound from their 103-89 loss to San Antonio on Monday when they face the Celtics in the first of two consecutive road games.

kdruley@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – St. Charles East girls basketball fans shifted into show-andtell mode Tuesday night, presenting a Laney Deckrow cardboard headshot and a “No Dogs Allowed In the Hilton” sign to two of their muses. Deckrow and point guard Amanda Hilton weren’t the only ones flattered after the Saints handled Batavia, 5940, in the nightcap of a semifinal doubleheader at the 4A St. Charles East Regional. No Saint or East partisan was in a hurry to scatter to the locker room, home, or any other destination as the hosts darted past the Bulldogs for the second time in 16 days. East (18-11) advanced to face Geneva in the regional final at 7:30 p.m. Thursday after the Vikings defeated Glenbard East, 54-39, in the opening semifinal. East and Geneva split a pair of overtime games in Upstate Eight Conference River Division play this season, and it’s the Saints’ intention to practice the same postgame protocol Thursday as they did against the Bulldogs. “I thought it was going to be a close game this time because I knew they wanted it, but I’m glad we came out how we did,” Saints sophomore wing Kyra Washington said. “I guess that’s a pretty decent score.” Saints coach Lori Drumtra billed the rubber match as Geneva’s “bigs” against East’s “waterbugs,” but reiterated how she liked her team’s chances despite its size disadvantage. Batavia (18-11) had some height on East, too, but the Saints’ hustle, crisp passing and rebounding edge balanced the equation, as Hilton (16 points), Washington (15) and Deckrow (13) led the charge. On Jan. 8, the same two teams met in Batavia, with

Now fully adjusted to a new lineup after senior guard Paige Jordan elected to leave the team in December, the Saints have outscored the Bulldogs, 136-106, since. “I think they were quicker – and then you can insert any statement after that – than us tonight,” Batavia coach Kevin Jensen said. “Yeah, I said that same thing to our coaching staff. It felt like any time there was a tip or a loose ball that we were stuck in the mud and they were getting there. I don’t

necessarily think it was us [having a] bad effort after it, I just think when you have those three guards that are that fast, they can make an opponent look like you’re stuck in the mud. At times, that’s what it did.” Jensen was referring to Hilton, Carly Pottle and Katie Claussner, a speedy trio that was just the beginning of the Saints’ success. While Batavia’s 16 for 46 shooting night included woes from long range, the Bulldogs also struggled inside against the rangy, 6-foot-1 Washington and Deckrow, who combined for 17 rebounds. Washington, who has come off the bench lately with the emergence of her classmate, Claussner, also affected her share of shots with sound positioning. East led by as many as 21 in the second half, remaining poised even when Batavia junior point guard Liza Fruendt (24 points) cut the deficit to eight in the final 20

seconds of the third quarter. When they weren’t scoring in transition, the Saints were effective with their man-toman defense, especially in the paint. “I think they couldn’t get the ball inside as much,” Washington said. “We had solid down-low ‘D’ and then good help.” Geneva (18-10) defended the Saints man-to-man in the teams’ most recent meeting, but largely frustrated Glenbard East with 2-1-2 and 2-3 zone looks. Starters Sami Pawlak (12 points), Abby Novak (10), Morgan Seberger, Kelly Gordon and Sidney Santos scored at least three points each in a 19-0 run to begin the game. Glenbard East tallied its first points with 1:53 remaining in the first quarter on an Elie Donovan trey, and drew to within 19-6 when Kelly Eberle connected from long range moments later.

PREP ZONE Jay Schwab during Wednesday’s defenseintensive practices. In that sense, Crabel does not fear Sente’s proposal would be a major jolt to his program, but he also dismissed the notion that limiting players from being driven to the turf is the beall, end-all when it comes to staving off head injuries. “Just because you don’t take somebody to the ground doesn’t eliminate the things they’re talking about,” Crabel said. “Just because they didn’t take someone to the ground, they don’t get a concussion? I mean, when your offensive linemen and defensive linemen hit heads, nobody is being taken to the ground.” In 2011, the state of Illinois passed regulations requiring players receive medical clearance to return from concussions, but doctors have noted that the cumulative effect of blows to the head from football pose a long-term risk that do not always trace back to concussions. Aurora Central Catholic football coach Brian Casey noted that for smaller

Vikings now on a 6-game winning steak • CHAMPIONSHIP Continued from page 18 The Rams trailed, 38-15, at halftime and again came within 13 points during garbage time before their season ended at 3-23. Geneva’s torrid start was a welcome contrast to recent beginning sequences in what now is a six-game winning streak. “That start, it really just gave us a confidence boost and kind of showed us that we can play as a team and we can go far,” Novak said. Batavia shot 7 for 24 in the first half and was limited to four points for much of the second quarter. A late boost brought the Bulldogs to within 33-21 at the break, including a long, wild trey Fru-

endt banked in at the buzzer. Fruendt, recently named the UEC River Player of the Year, managed the beginnings of a frustrated smirk before shaking her head and moving toward the locker room. Exiting the locker room at night’s end, Fruendt assessed the season before joining her nine teammates in a pileup embrace at midcourt. Batavia fielded a roster of eight for much of the season before Jensen promoted two players for the postseason. “You can’t win as many games as we did with eight people and not be best friends, and truly, I wouldn’t have asked for anything else,” Fruendt said. “Obviously, we want to win and we want to keep going, but it’s something that I’m going to take

with me and I know the rest of us will take with us for the rest of our lives.” Erin Bayram followed Fruendt with eight points. Deckrow said the Saints flinched while reviewing tape of the first Batavia game, but it was an important step in the group’s overall growth. While a late-season hiccup ultimately made the Saints UEC River runners-up to the Vikings, East quickly resolved to move on toward the postseason. At that point, the Saints knew they would be a lowerseeded team in regionals and play on their own floor in their road uniforms. That may be, but with its fans and a confidence Drumtra described as “just flying high,” East couldn’t feel more at home.

all the 7A and 8A schools where everyone plays only one game, because those kids alone are going to be getting two days of contact.” Casey has other reservations about the proposal, too. He acknowledged that when he played high school football at Montini before injury concerns were so pervasive, the first day of practice in pads each year was “nothing but a two hour Royal Rumble.” But Casey said coaches these days already are taking common sense steps to avoid violent hits in practice. He said some of the

Chargers’ partnered-up, form tackling drills involve bumping and jostling, and he considers the drills crucial to players learning to tackle properly. “If that’s now illegal, hey, that’s a problem, because we’re teaching the safe way to tackle with as little risk as possible as far as injuries, and if you don’t do something like that, there’s a greater risk on Friday night, and I mean a significantly greater risk on Friday night,” Casey said. Casey said he would support increased certification demands on coaches to teach correct tackling form but thinks legislating how often tackling is taught would be counterproductive. “You don’t get practice driving a car or getting a license just by reading ‘Rules of the Road,’ boom,” Casey said. “You have driver’s ed, you have behind the wheel class because you have to learn how to do it. It’s a similar analogy with tackling. You don’t just get better by watching a coach demonstrate it.”

High school football coaches contend they’ve already received the message loud and clear when it comes to player safety. A state legislator thinks it should become law to make sure that is the case. State Rep. Carol Sente, D-Lincolnshire, is introducing a bill designed to protect high school football players from head and brain trauma by limiting tackling to one practice a week. According to an article on CBS Chicago’s website, Sente is open to feedback when it comes to how the bill ultimately takes shape on matters ranging from how equipment such as dummies and sleds factor in, the way tackling would be policed during the offseason and other specifics that will need to be ironed out. She reportedly has scheduled a town hall meeting about her proposal for Feb. 25 at Vernon Hills High School. Many football coaches have raised questions about the proposal’s merits, as well as how it would be implemented. Burlington Central coach Rich Crabel said his team only hits in-season during Tuesday and Wednesday practices, and typically only tackles players to the ground

Knights easily advance, will play Plano

By ROSS JACOBSON rjacobson@shawmedia.com BURLINGTON – Most teams would like the luxury of a bye into the regional semifinals rather than have to play three games en route to a regional title. But after Kaneland’s game against Rochelle on Thursday was canceled and having not played a game in a week, the Knights didn’t seem to mind getting back on the court for Tuesday’s Class 3A Burlington Central Regional quarterfinal.

While Kaneland struggled offensively in the early going, the Knights’ defense was unrelenting. They held Sandwich to only two made field goals

O’Herron would cap her night with consecutive threes early in the fourth quarter before Colombe benched his starters for the last six minutes of the game.

“Any time a team’s in the zone, I know I’m going to get some open looks and when I feel it I feel it,” O’Herron said. “Any shooter is going to say that.” O’Herron finished with 20 points to lead the Knights. Caroline Heimerdinger had 10 points off the bench. Although Kaneland hasn’t faced Plano this season, Colombe said the Knights have scouted them six or seven times. “We know they’re talented, they have some good athletes,” Kaneland coach Ernie Colombe said. “We’ll have to play well [today].”

ACC girls North Stars overpowered in semifinals hoops win By AKEEM GLASPIE

editorial@kcchronicle.com WHEATON – The length of top seeded Wheaton Warrenville South proved too difficult to overcome for the St. Charles North girls basketball team as the North Stars fell, 62-41, Tuesday in the semifinals of the IHSA Class 4A Wheaton Warrenville South Regional. The North Stars (9-20) were led offensively by 12 second quarter points from sophomore guard Nicole Davidson. Davidson, who ended the game with 12 points, followed a 3-pointer with a layup plus a foul shot to cut the Tigers’ lead to 11 with 6:50 left in the first half. But North couldn’t sustain momentum, ending a difficult season with a rotation featuring numerous underclassmen. “As a team we wanted to work together – we should have had a better start, but we got it together in the second half,” Davidson said. “At the beginning of the season we didn’t really play as a team, we were individuals, but at the end we were playing for the seniors. We want-

Five of those rebounds came on the offensive end, leading to easy layups. Overall, the Tigers won the rebounding battle 36-14 and were led by senior post Diamond Thompson. Thompson used her size down low to score using a variety of low post moves, and her team looked to her often as she led all scores with 22 points. St. Charles North coach Colleen Backer said the Tigers’ size was difficult for her team to handle.

“Obviously it was difficult for us ... We had a lot of difficulty in the paint and getting stops on ‘D’,” she said. “Across the board, we had a hard time adjusting to it.” In the second half, the Tigers used an 18-7 third quarter to put the game out of reach. The team’s length made its 2-3 zone effective by clogging the lane and forcing the North Star to rely on their outside shooting. The Tigers had three other players score in double figures as Melinda Franke, Olivia Linebarger and Meghan Waldron had 10, 10 and 12 points respectively. North Stars senior guard Alex Silverman ended with 11 points in her final high school game. Silverman is one of four seniors on the team and part of a young team that starts two freshmen and a sophomore. Overall, Silverman said she wanted to provide positive leadership for-

her teammates. “Of course I want to lead by example, we have a really young team and I want to try and show them what you have to do to lead a team ... I tried my best, and I hope it’s enough to do a little bit better next year,” Silverman said. Silverman said she witnessed the confidence of the team grow from the beginning of the year to now. With more experience, Silverman said she expects to continue to see improvement in her teammates. Despite the team’s final record, Backer said her team has a lot to be proud of. “I would say our overall effort this season, overall competition from the girls and their unity as a team,” she said. “Really enjoying being around each other, constantly working hard … always coming and playing, doing what they can to play four quarters together and never give up.”

The KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE WESTCHESTER – The Aurora Central Catholic girls basketball team notched what coach Mark Fitzgerald called “one of the greatest victories in the history of the program” on Tuesday, holding off a second half charge from host St. Joseph for a 71-66, IHSA Class 3A regional semifinal win. The Chargers (14-14) received major contributions from sophomore Gabi Alfaro (17 points) and veterans Alex DeCraene (19) and Lisa Rodriguez (20). “Gabi Alfaro played out of her mind tonight. … Scoring, defensively, rebounding, steals, assists,” Fitzgerald said. “Just her best game so far in her young career.” The Chargers, who have had an up-and-down season with a young roster on the heels of last year’s fourth place state finish in Class 2A, advance to Thursday’s regional final against Nazareth Academy.

Kaneland senior Dan Goress said he likely will know more about his college wrestling options after this weekend’s IHSA State Meet in Champaign, but the Sugar Grove resident has already demonstrated his dominance at the high school level. After winning the 145-pound IHSA Class 2A Rochelle Sectional championship Saturday, Goress, the St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week, is gearing up for what he hopes will be a big finish at Assembly Hall. Kane County Chronicle sports editor Jay Schwab recently caught up with Goress about the climax of his season. The following is an edited transcript:

ST. CHARLES – Kaneland boys basketball coach Brian Johnson lost his shoe demonstratively protesting a foul call in the third quarter of Tuesday’s boys basketball game at St. Charles North. The other shoe dropped on the Knights in the fourth quarter in the form of North sophomore Jack Callaghan. Callaghan, a reserve forward, scored 11 of his career high 13 points in the final quarter as the North Stars pulled away for a 61-50 nonconference victory against Kaneland. Callaghan made all four of his fourth quarter shots, three from 3-point land and another on a run-out after his steal at the other end. “I was open, and my teammates got it to me,” Callaghan said of his fourth quarter outburst. “It was in rhythm. I think that was probably the best I’ve shot, definitely, [this season].” It was the fourth straight win for North (15-8) while Kaneland (13-10) has dropped four in a row after winning seven straight games beforehand. On North’s final home game of the season, North Stars senior standout Quinten Payne was happy to share the spotlight with Callaghan. “When we didn’t really have a point guard in there when we subbed and went with a little bit of a bigger lineup, we were just getting it out and running, and he was spotting up well in transition,” Payne said. “He had a great defensive steal and he got a layup, and he did a great job running and getting in the right spots when we pushed it up.” Another North sophomore, Jake Ludwig, buried a long 3-pointer to give North

a 43-37 lead in the final seconds of a somewhat bizarre third quarter. The teams were tied, 28-all, at halftime but North surged ahead, 40-33, after junior guard Alec Goetz made four straight free throws when Johnson was called for a technical foul in response to forward Matt Limbrunner being whistled for a blocking foul on a hard drive by Goetz. One of Johnson’s dress shoes flew onto the floor as attempted to demonstrate his point to the officials. Johnson called the episode “a little weird, but it happens, I guess.” It was certainly a first for him. On a more serious note, Johnson was pleased with the effort his Knights displayed against their bigger-school opponent on the heels of what has been a rough first two weeks of February for Kaneland, which remains in first place in the Northern Illinois Big 12 East. “I actually thought tonight we turned the corner as far as what we were doing the previous three games,” Johnson said. “After tonight, I’m really encouraged moving forward with the final three games of the year.” Conversely, North coach Tom Poulin was dissatisfied with North’s showing in the first half, especially in the hustle categories. “We were teaching them loudly at halftime and asking for a little bit more out of them, especially on the glass and on the 50/50 balls, the loose balls,” Poulin said. “It seemed like Kaneland wanted it more in the first half, and our guys, they were playing, but they weren’t playing as hard as they could, is what it looked like. I’m sure they were giving effort.” Limbrunner scored a game-high 19 points and had seven rebounds, while teammate Ty Carlson scored nine of his 11 points in the first half for the Knights.

CUBS NOTES

Baker optimistic for Opening Day Sveum not, careful with pitcher’s Tommy John rehab By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com MESA, Ariz. – Cubs starting pitcher Scott Baker is optimistic that come Opening Day, he will be completely healthy and part of the rotation. Manager Dale Sveum cautioned against expecting Baker, who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, to be ready to go April 1. The Cubs plan to be careful with Baker’s workload early IN spring training. “He’s going to be a little more babied,” Sveum said. “His effort level is going to pick up as spring goes along.” Baker threw 40 pitches at about 70 percent during Tuesday’s bullpen session at Fitch Park. The Cubs will give Baker a day off here and there based on how he feels. For the most part, however, he will stay on the same track as other Cubs pitchers.

“We’re not going to put a timetable on it,” Sveum said of Baker’s return. “We’re going to ease him on into things and see how things work.” Baker has a strict protocol to follow as he rehabs from Tommy John surgery but so far, the right hander has not experienced any setbacks. Sometimes that protocol is difficult to follow, particularly on days when Baker believes he can do more than allowed. But given the success of pitchers after undergoing the Tommy John surgery, Baker trusts the process. Ideally, Baker said he will be ready for Opening Day. “This whole offseason, the entire rehab process, was to get ready to open the season,” Baker said. “As of right now, that’s the plan. Obviously, I’m Cubs property and their best interest is my best interest. We’re all on the same page it’s just a matter of allowing them

to do what they think is best for me and I’m OK with that.”

Schierholtz eager to prove himself: President of baseball operations Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer have repeatedly stated they expect to utilize platoons in the outfield. Despite having a couple offers from other teams, outfielder Nate Schierholtz opted to sign with the Cubs during the offseason. Playing in the playoffs is a priority for Schierholtz, and he sees an opportunity to do that with the Cubs, a team he believes is trending upward. “My goal is to show everyone what I can do and stay healthy,” Schierholtz said. “I know that if I have an opportunity to play a little bit more, I can be productive. In the past I feel like I haven’t quite gotten the opportunity to show that and I’ve gotten hurt a few times.”

Jackson blending in: Playing on his eighth team in 11 years has made pitcher Edwin Jackson adept at getting to know new teammates. The transition has been just as seamless with the Cubs. Jackson has earned the label of being the Cubs’ biggest free agent signing since Epstein and Hoyer joined the organization. But he shook off the notion that he has additional pressure as a marquee signing. “I don’t feel like I have to go out and try to overdo it,” Jackson said. “They brought me here for a reason. As far as I’m concerned, everyone is working on bettering themselves and that’s all I plan on doing.” • Meghan Montemurro covers the White Sox and Cubs for Shaw Media.

Rose ‘far away’ from returning Derrick Rose plans to be extra careful when it comes to his recovery from a torn ACL. Rose, who has not played since his injury April 28, spoke with USA Today in his first extensive interview of the season. Although Rose has returned to practice and takes part in extensive shooting drills before games, the Bulls have not specified a date for his return.

Bears terminate contract of Knox The Bears announced Tuesday that they have terminated the contract of wide receiver Johnny Knox. Knox spent last season on the physically unable to perform list because of a back injury he suffered in Week 15 of the 2011 season against Seattle. Before his injury, Knox had 133 receptions for 2,214 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also had 1,506 yards on 55 kickoff returns with one touchdown.

Bar scene gets crafty ‘Flavor-forward’ craft beers tantalize Tri-Cities and beyond By KARA SILVA ksilva@shawmedia.com Chicago has long been a city of beerlovers – and drinkers. With the craft beer trend overflowing beyond city limits, the suburbs have been reaping the benefits of foamy, flavor-forward brews the past few years. With new gastropubs popping up in the area – and an increase in stocked microbrews on the shelves of stores, restaurants and bars – Kane County appears to be going “craft.” There is no better time to drink beer in the U.S. than right now, according to the Colorado-based Brewers Association website, www.brewersassociation. org. The Brewers Association is billed as the nation’s largest organization of craft brewers. As of July 2012, there were more than 2,000 operating U.S. craft breweries – up from about 1,900 in 2011, according to the website. The number of anticipated brewery openings in Illinois for 2013 shows similar trending. At the moment, the state has 45 licensed brewers, and an anticipated 25 to 30 new brewpubs and breweries will be opening in the Chicagoland area this year, according to Justin Maynard, executive director of the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild – a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the development and expansion of the craft beer industry in Illinois. “Craft beer is growing at an exponential rate in Illinois because beer consumers are becoming more educated in the brewing process,” Maynard stated in an email. On par with national and state trending, the Tri-Cities area has also seen a recent uptick in craft beer-related business. The Tap House Bar and Grill in St. Charles recently underwent a complete remodel that allowed for 41 beers (mostly craft) on tap as well as 1,500 square feet of extra space. In November of last year,

RIGHT: Stockholm’s owner Michael Olesen (right) of Geneva leads the craft beer class “Beer Drinking for the Connoisseur.” the Spotted Fox Ale house – with 30 craft beers on tap – opened across the street from Charlestowne Mall in St. Charles. Also in St. Charles, a restaurant space that is part of the First Street development in the downtown area underwent a year-long makeover and reopened in June 2012 as the gastropub Wild Monk, which features about 72 brews. The Gammon Coach House, operating under the slogan “Comfort Food and Craft Beer,” opened in Batavia in 2011. Craft beer is steadily changing the bar and restaurant scene in Kane County, making way for local, hand-crafted brews. “Kane County has had a whole new perspective on craft beer over the last six months,” said Sugar Grove resident Mike Cohoon, who co-owns the familyrun Chicago Beer Company with his brother. “Two years ago, no one would even talk to me [in the area] regarding craft beer, and I was from St. Charles. Kane County is behind, but definitely

catching up.” Still relatively new to the game, the Chicago Beer Company was established in 2010 by Mike and Kevin Cohoon. The duo have since created three hand-crafted brews, Chi-Town Windy City Wheat, Lakeshore Lager and Pier Pale Ale, which can be found at the White Sox’s U.S. Cellular Field as well as retailers such as Jewel-Osco, Dominick’s, Trader Joe’s, Target, Binny’s Beverage Depot and Woodman’s Markets. Currently, the brothers are riding the tide of the trend, and are in the process of opening a brewery in the West Loop of Chicago, as well as concocting a fourth brew this spring called 1871 – an IPA commemorating the year of the Great Chicago Fire. “We can grow as fast or subtract as fast as we want, and that’s the beauty of the craft market trend,” Cohoon said. A Kane County veteran to the craftbeer subculture is Stockholm’s in Geneva, which currently stands as the sole micro-brewery in the Tri-Cities. Own-

er and brewer Michael Oleson opened Stockholm’s nearly 11 years ago, and last year, Oleson said he saw an 18 percent increase in production. “We’ve seen [production numbers] go up every year,” Oleson said, adding that his bar sales for macro-brews – or traditional domestics – such as Miller and Budweiser products are down. “When we first opened, it was hard to get people out of their comfort zone,” he said. “People are finally receptive, but we’ve only just begun to reach everybody.” In an effort to do just that, Oleson teaches a three-session, craft-beer education class, “Beer Drinking for the Connoisseur” at Stockholm’s. The class is offered through Waubonsee Community College for $45. “The class introduces major beer styles that are out there; it’s a general intro into the world of beer,” he said.

House Pub in St. Charles happy to be at forefront of craft-beer movement • CRAFT BEER Continued from page 25 Another seasoned player – or the “granddaddy” of local micro-breweries, as co-owner Jason Ebel likes to put it – is Two Brothers Brewing Co. in Warrenville. After living in France, brothers Jason Ebel of Geneva and Jim Ebel of North Aurora formed a fondness for flavorful European beers, and in response to the lack of specialty beers back home, decided to create their own. Their brewery has been in operation since 1996. “We got into this because we love flavor-forward beers,” Jason Ebel said. “If it was just about the money, we would have quit 20 times by now.” The Ebel brothers recently expanded their empire further west, opening a second brewpub – Two Brothers Roundhouse – in Aurora roughly 18 months ago. “Business is going quite well nowadays, but it was a struggle at first,” Jason Ebel said. “It has been steadily increasing.” Unlike Stockholm’s, where Oleson “gladly serves domestics,” Two Brothers solely serves a selection of its own craft brews as well as local and European guest craft beer out of its new 70,000-square-foot facility. Two Brothers’ exclusivity to craft beer is a philosophy shared by The House Pub in St. Charles. “We were the first bar in the area doing solely craft beer,” said House Pub coowner Tom Wojcik, who opened the bar with Steve Erd in 2008 during one of the country’s worst economic downturns in decades. “It was tough,” Wojcik admits. But in the face of ridicule and a recession, the pair still stuck by their mission. “When we talked about opening a bar, we wanted to do something completely different. So, when we decided to open a craft-beer bar, we got laughed at by other bar owners – especially in [St. Charles.] They were saying, ‘It’s just a fad; it’s never going to take off,’” Wojcik said,

adding, “If it IS a fad, it’s a fantastic fad.” Wojcik said customers who were new to craft beer were a tough sell in the beginning, and reeducation of what beer is and can be was crucial to The House Pub’s success. “We decided to no longer carry Bud Light or any of the major [macrobrew] brands on tap, and it has been fantastic since then.” House Pub initially had 60 to 70 different craft brews in

stock, and – now – it carries more than 200. Since The House Pub’s humble beginnings, Wojcik said business has picked up, and he’s happy to be at the forefront of the trend and helping spearhead the craft beer movement.

Craft-beer ceiling The recession continues to wage war on the pocketbooks of the masses, but the craft beer revolution rages on despite being somewhat

LEFT: The Chicago Beer Company’s signature clover pays tribute to co-owners Mike and Kevin Cohoon’s Irish heritage. less economical. So, why is “craft” culling sales from less expensive macrobrews? Craft beer generally has a higher ABV – alcohol by volume – percentage than macrobrews, but it also comes at a higher price than its less potent counterparts. For example, a 12-ounce bottle of Bud light may cost $3.50 on average and have an ABV percentage of 4.2, but a bottle of Two Brothers Domaine DuPage at House Pub will cost $4.50 and has an ABV percentage of 5.9.

A 10-ounce pour of Bell’s Expedition Stout at House Pub will cost $8, but packs a powerful 10.5 ABV percentage. “Craft beer lasts longer because it has more alcohol, and it is more complex,” Cohoon said. “Now people will spend an extra dollar or two for better beer.” Maynard agreed, adding that people also will spend more money on beer produced locally.

“[Craft beer] is an affordable luxury,” Jason Ebel said, adding that craft beer also is becoming more popular because of its rich flavor profiles, which allow for food-pairings. With craft beer’s rise in popularity and a limited population to serve in the Kane County area, the question of whether there is enough business to go around is raised. Eventually there will be a “shakeout,” Ebel said. Oleson agreed. “Craft beer is not immune to the laws of economics,” he said. “Right now, it’s growing and a whole bunch of people are jumping in, but not everybody is going to succeed.” Tom Seefurth and his wife, Athena, found success in craft beer – or “culinary beer” as they call it – out of necessity. In 2006, the Campton Hills couple, through homebrewing in their garage, created the quirky Mamma Mia Pizza Beer – an ale with typical ingredients in addition to real tomato, garlic, basil and oregano. While their Pizza Beer started taking off, the housing market – in which Tom and Athena Seefurth both worked – began to plummet, causing the family to nearly lose their home. “[The Pizza Beer] was a means of survival for my family,” Tom Seefurth said. Before long, the couple’s Pizza Beer was winning competitions and found enough success to land their creative concoction in an array of newspapers, on TV in England and on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” “A part of being successful is you have to be different,” Tom Seefurth said. “Craft beer is here to stay, but as a victim of the real estate business … when things grow too fast, and when there are so many duplicate styles of beer, eventually, the bubble will burst.”

HOROSCOPE By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association TODAY – Although the route you choose to follow in the year ahead might not be an easy one, you know that it could lead somewhere quite valuable. Success is likely if you have the courage of your convictions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Even though you’re inclined to even the score with someone who did something that you deeply resent, try to find out the motives behind this person’s actions. You’ll have a smarter reaction. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Every once in a while, you’re far too generous to an undeserving person. This is one of those days when you might again exercise such poor judgment. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Be extremely selective about the goals you pursue. Make sure they will bring you satisfaction once you’ve achieved them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Because of a reluctance on your part to express what is really disturbing you, friends or associates could find you perplexing, as well as difficult to deal with. Speak out. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – It behooves you to be more selective about those with whom you choose to associate. Steer clear of companions who have a faculty for making waves and causing trouble. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – For the sake of harmony, try to view things from your mate or other house member’s perspective. What’s important to you might not be to him or her. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Having a bad attitude about the day’s duties is likely to produce bad results. Putting a smile on your face will make your job quite a bit easier. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Although you may be having difficulty getting someone who is indebted to you to settle his or her account, applying pressure won’t help. Find another way. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Be extremely diplomatic when dealing with your mate or an important person in your life if you hope to maintain domestic harmony. Nothing will be gained by bringing up old, divisive issues. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Overstepping the fine line between constructive criticism and nitpicking could produce a situation that will surprise even you. Be more sensitive about what you say and how you say it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Should you want to make a purchase from a firm that you’ve never dealt with, make sure the merchandise can be returned in case you have second thoughts. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – If a person with whom you’re involved isn’t living up to his or her claims, you’ll handle it much better if you’re congenial. Don’t be authoritarian or harsh.

Food for Thought: Try soy in meals GATEHOUSE NEWS SERVICE Bringing healthier foods to the table can be easier – and more delicious – than you might think. When you add high-quality proteins such as soyfoods to the menu, you open up the door to a wide variety of tasty and nutritious meals. The plant-based proteins of soy are packed with benefits for your body. They: • Have all the essential amino acids needed for growth. • May help reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol and increasing the flexibility of blood vessels. • Are equivalent to animal sources of protein but have no cholesterol and little saturated fat. In fact, both the national 2010 Dietary Guidelines and the MyPlate nutrition guidance recommend soyfoods such as soymilk, veggie burgers, soy nutrition bars, soy sausages, tofu, soy yogurt, soy protein shakes and edamame. You can easily enjoy soy proteins in a lot of different ways. Meat and poultry lovers can enjoy soy, too, by incorporating soy crumbles and other soy products into their favorite dishes. This recipe for a Veggie Taco Salad makes a satisfying, nutritious entree for the whole family.

Veggie Taco Salad (Makes 4 servings)

Ingredients: • 2 cups soy crumbles (you can find these in your grocer’s freezer section or refrigerated meat section) • 3/4 cup salsa • 5 cups shredded lettuce • 1 cup corn kernels

needs between 5 and 7 ounces of protein a day.

Topping options: • 1/4 cup sliced green onions • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese • 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives • 2 tablespoons fat free sour cream

Directions: 1. In large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook crumbles and salsa over medium heat about 5 minutes or until heated through, stirring frequently. 2. In large bowl toss together lettuce, corn and black beans. Arrange on 4 serving plates. Top with crumbles mixture. Sprinkle with toppings. – Family Features

Tip of the Week A variety of vegetarian products look – and may taste – like their non-vegetarian counterparts but are usually lower in saturated fat and contain no cholesterol. For breakfast, try soy-based sausage patties or links. For dinner, rather than hamburgers, try bean burgers or falafel (chickpea patties). – ChooseMyPlate. gov

Easy Recipes: Cheddar, Pesto & Onion Panini (Makes: 4 servings)

Ingredients: • 2 tablespoons butter, softened •1/2 of a 24-ounce package Pepperidge Farm Farmhouse Hearty White Bread (8 slices) • 8 slices deli sharp cheddar cheese (about 8 ounces) •1/4 cup pesto sauce •1/2 cup French fried onions

Directions: 1. Spread the butter on the bread slices. Turn 4 bread slices butter-side down. 2. Place 2 cheese slices on each butter-topped slice and top each with 1 tablespoon pesto and 2 tablespoons onions. Top with the remaining bread slices, butter-side up. 3. Heat the panini maker. Add the sandwiches in batches and cook for 5 minutes or until lightly browned and the cheese is melted.

Alternate preparation: • If you don’t have a panini maker you can use a grill pan or a 10-inch skillet. • Assemble the sandwiches as directed above. • Heat the grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Add the sandwiches in batches and cook until lightly browned on both sides and the cheese is melted. – Family Features/ Campbell’s Soup Company

and after she finishes her MBA, she’ll seek out a more normal relationship. I am distraught about this mess. Melanie says she wants to start a family soon. She says she loves Sam, who can “handle everything,” and she enjoys seeing “everyone happy.” She says Alicia won’t sleep around now and, maybe, one day she’ll marry a handsome man like Sam who will “return the favor!” I can’t believe these girls are my daughters. Should I continue to protest or let it go? Is this relaxed attitude about sex prevalent in young people today? I cannot understand Melanie’s lack of desire to defend

‘Sundowning’ is real, but not really understood Dear Doctor K: My wife is in her late 70s. Lately she appears very tired and agitated in the evenings. I talked to a doctor friend who said she might be “sundowning.” What is sundowning, and what can we do about it? Dear Reader: Some older people have trouble concentrating, grow agitated or even confused, and become especially fatigued at the end of the day. This phenomenon is known as “sundowning” because its effects tend to coincide with sunset – usually occurring in the late afternoon into the evening, then settling down late at night. Sundowning behavior commonly occurs in people with Alzheimer’s disease, but it can also occur in older people without Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. Sundowning is more likely to occur in an unfamiliar environment in a dark place. I had a patient who never experienced sundowning at home, but sometimes when she and her husband traveled, it would happen in a hotel room at night. Sundowning occurs quite often in hospitalized patients. It can lead to problems such as falls and fractured bones as people get out of bed in their confusion and trip over something. Sundowning isn’t an illness; it’s a temporary condition, and

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff we don’t entirely understand what causes it. One explanation is that by late afternoon, some older people have difficulty coping with the accumulation of stresses that build over the course of the day. Here are some ways you and your wife can alleviate the effects of sundowning: • Keep a daily log and jot down events that seem to trigger symptoms. For instance, too much noise or the act of preparing dinner could be a trigger. Once you and your wife recognize these triggers, you can work on ways to avoid them. • Stick to a regular schedule. Take walks or exercise at the same time each day, preferably early in the day. Eat an early dinner and go to sleep at the same time each night. • Schedule appointments, trips and activities in the morning. Limit obligations in the late afternoon hours. • Take a late afternoon rest. Just putting her feet up and closing her eyes for a short respite can help preserve your wife’s energy and prevent end-of-day fatigue.

• Prevent overstimulation by reducing noise from televisions or stereos. • Reduce food and beverages that contain caffeine, or restrict them to early morning hours. Caffeine can stay in your system for as long as 16 hours and interrupt your sleep. Poor quality sleep may also contribute to sundowning. • When she begins to feel symptoms, she should either rest or do something familiar that relaxes her, such as knitting or reading the newspaper. If the problem is ongoing, have your doctor review the medications she is taking to be sure that they’re not causing the problem. Sundowning is more common in older people than you might think. Fortunately, it���s not usually a sign of a serious underlying problem. But it can lead to problems, like falls and fractures, so try some of the things that you and she can do yourselves. If they don’t help, ask her doctor if testing of her intellectual function might be required. But I’ll bet that won’t prove necessary.

Dr. Wallace: Last week my son became a teenager by reaching the magical age of 13. My ex-husband and I have been divorced for over eight years, so my son and I have spent much time together. Basically, Kyle is a good kid and I want him to remain that way through the very difficult teen years. I can vouch for that! My teen years were very rocky. If you could give me one tip to keep my son from going wrong, what would that be? – Mother, Centralia, Wash. Dear Mother: I can boil it down to a single word: LISTENING. It’s most important to have open and honest communication between parent and child. Wise parents always find time to listen when a child needs to talk. Regardless of what the parents are doing, they should take a break and devote their full attention to what the child is saying. When listening, make good eye contact, and never give the child any negative body language, especially a noticeable frown. After listening, and when you need to know certain information, you should ask openended questions such as, “Tell me more about the party,” rather than, “I hope there won’t be alcohol and drugs available.” When a teen feels comfortable, trusts a parent and is not threatened with intimidating questions, the parent is more likely to receive quality information. Everyone wants to be heard. The wise choice for the parent is to listen carefully. Dr. Wallace: Sara and I had been best friends since kindergarten, but we stopped doing things together after she got a boyfriend and started hanging around with

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace him and his friends. I never had anything in common with them, and I really didn’t approve of some of the things they were doing. Last week she called and asked me to attend her 16th birthday party at her house. I was surprised because I honestly thought she’d forgotten all about me. I told her I would try to make it. Now I’m not so sure I want to go because a lot of her new friends will be there, and I really don’t want to be associated with them Would it be rude of me if I didn’t show up? I still like this girl as a friend, but since we now have so little in common, I know we will never be close again. – Nameless, Ft. Walton Beach, Fla. Dear Nameless: Go to her party and help her celebrate No. 16. If you wind up feeling uncomfortable, you can always leave early. You might be surprised, though, because some friendships manage to survive many ups and downs and last a lifetime. This could be the start of a new connection with your old friend. • Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

attractive young women, both doing well in their professional careers. “Melanie,” who is 27, is married to “Sam,” an extremely attractive and successful man. My 30-year-old daughter, “Alicia,” has been divorced for a year. Her marriage failed two years ago because she and her husband had an appetite for sex outside their marriage. While I was disturbed about that, I was horrified to learn that Melanie allows her sister to occasionally have sex with Sam. Melanie’s argument is that Sam is less likely to cheat given this situation. When I asked her and Sam about it, he said it wasn’t his idea. My current husband says any man who would refuse this “setup” would be nuts. Alicia claims she “doesn’t have time” to date right now,

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips

her turf. – Heartbroken Mom in Florida Dear Mom: Your daughters appear to be into the concept of open marriage. Clearly, they do not view marriage and relationships the same way you do. Melanie is naive to think that encouraging Sam to have a sexual relationship with her sister will discourage him from seeking other partners. Far from it. And as for her wanting to start a family, has she considered what will happen if her husband impregnates Alicia at the same time – or first? But back to your question: Are you right to protest? You certainly are. That’s what mothers are for – to inject a dose of sanity when everyone around her is losing theirs.

Cut the defenders from each other

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Edwin Schlossberg, the founder of ESI Design and the constructor of the first hands-on learning environment in the United States at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, said, “True interactivity is not about clicking on icons or downloading files; it’s about encouraging communication.” True bridge is not about making meaningless bids and playing uninformative cards; it is about communicating with your partner – and sometimes about breaking the opponents’ communication. In this deal, South is in three no-trump after East overcalled in hearts. West leads the heart 10. How should declarer plan the play? Some Souths would have made a negative double over one heart to show the four-card spade suit. But with a limited hand worth only one bid, two solid heart stoppers and four weak spades, I like one no-trump. (If South had doubled, North would have rebid two hearts, a game-forcing cue-bid, South would have rebid two or three no-trump, and the final contract would have been the same.) South started with seven top tricks: two spades, two hearts and three diamonds. He had to establish two club winners. Thinking no further, the original declarer took the first trick and played a club from his hand. West was not napping. He rose with his king and led his remaining heart. Whether South won or lost this trick, when he played a second club, East took the trick and cashed his hearts for down one. South should have cut the communications between East and West by ducking the first trick. Then he would have made his contract.
