Members of Kidz in the Mix practice their routine at the Oak Brook Park District.

Local girls who dance with Kidz in the Mix could use our good vibes. They recently auditioned for a major reality talent show. And while the show’s producers reportedly were impressed with their act, a little sidebending and virtual high kicks of our own might help inch them further toward their goal. The Hinsdale Police Department is getting creative with its resources. It recently launched a volunteer program seeking outside help from residents to perform records services, greet people in the lobby and serve as public information, investigative services or traffic aides. Police also are seeking community members who have specialized skills, such as information technology or web design. Any assistance provided would both help police and bolster volunteers’ resumes.

“Hi, I’m the public library.” “Oh, sure, we’ve met before. Nice to see you. I’ve got to go meet some people.” “People who want to lend you their copies of the newest books and movies? Give you a Kindle for a week?” “Um …” “People who want to introduce your kids to stories and activities that will give them a leg up in school?” “I’m not sure about that …” “People who think that your every question is fascinating and want to spend their time helping you learn more about cooking, travel, medical conditions, Civil War history, dog breeds, colleges and baby names?” “I’m sorry. Who did you say you are again?” One of the great things about working in a public library is that when you introduce yourself, people’s faces light up and they say, “Oh, the library!” One of the challenges is that the library they’re imagining is often one filled with wooden card catalogs, dusty books and rows upon rows of The Reader’s Guide to Periodical Literature. A survey conducted in preparation for Hinsdale Public Library’s 2012-15 Strategic Plan revealed that stakeholders believed “increased public awareness about library services” to be the best area of opportunity for the library. In response, the library board

To the Editor: Residents of the former 13th Congressional District wish to thank the woman who represented them in Congress for seven terms, a woman of outstanding intelligence, integrity and compassion — Judy Biggert! Judy’s care for constituents was boundless. The congresswoman’s efforts to listen to people’s ideas, needs and concerns were endless. She connected with voters in a variety of ways. She met voters hand to hand while walking in hot, cold, windy or rainy parades joined by numerous loyal volunteers. Often she held “Conversations with Judy” in constituents’ homes. Frequently, she could be seen walking door to door in precinct after precinct. At times she was heard “talking and listening” in telethons and forums. She was faithful in reading letters from the public and responding to their concerns. Anyone who wished to meet with her in person was welcomed. And not to be forgotten were the meetings and parties

Continued from page 11 Judy hosted in her own home. Judy was approachable to all. Her peers in Congress voted her as being the congressperson most able to bring opposing sides together in working out solutions. It is regrettable that the former 13th District was reconstructed in a way that denied a majority of Judy’s strong supporters in earlier elections an opportunity to vote for her in the 2012 election. The majority of Judy’s supporters were put in congressional districts that did not include her. Of course, this change was perfectly legal. But the redistricting changes made it almost impossible for Judy to win back her seat in Congress. Words are inadequate and insufficient to express appreciation to Congresswoman Judy Biggert for representing so successfully the voters in the former 13th District. Judy’s voting public applauds her for choosing to serve our country in the public sector for so many years. Congresswoman Judy Biggert will be sorely missed by her constituents and as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Ann and John Grube

Doors,” invites you to come in and experience everything the library has to offer. It’s fitting that the first program of the new year was our popular Finals Service for high school students. We open our doors to hundreds of students during this time, providing extra tables, staff assistance, snacks and other studying staples throughout the week. This semester, we offered T-shirts with our new logo to teens who filled out a brief survey about how they spend their time. (No. 1 spot for studying? Bedroom floor!)

Young people often get job advice from parents To the Editor: As anyone with a teenage son or daughter may tell you, it may seem like the least likely place high school students turn to for advice is their parents. And with today’s constant flood of television, movies, social media and peer pressure, teenagers have more outside influencers than ever before. However, a new survey of high school students conducted by Everest College found that more than six in 10 respondents — the highest percentage of any response — say they find out about job and career choices from their parents or guardians. Parents, your influence on your teen’s future educational and career choices cannot be overestimated. In fact, a similar Everest survey found that lack of parental and educational support is the most common reason younger Americans drop out of high school. With the spring semester under way, I encourage you to spend time with your teens as they begin to map out their futures — particularly if graduation is around to corner. The time you take now can play a crucial part in setting up your child for future success.

Zumba class raises awareness about heart disease Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of both men and women, but women are affected more as the disease causes one in three women’s deaths each year, according to the American Heart Association. “I think there’s so much more awareness of the cancers, especially breast cancer, and I think heart disease is one of those things where it’s denial,” said Maryann Romanelli of Hinsdale, one of the organizers for the Go Red For Women Day last week. “If someone diagnoses you with cancer, you’re usually sick or you find a lump, but with heart disease, I think

it’s the No. 1 killer because people deny symptoms.” The instructor of the Zumba class, Sanny Jones, knows all too well about the dangers of heart-related issues. Her daughter, Hadasah, suffered from a heart defect when a large hole and a small hole formed in the organ. Her heart was enlarged 30 percent, but after surgery, it went back to regular size. One of the worries Jones had was how aware her daughter was of what was happening. Nurses at Children’s Memorial Hospital encouraged her to talk with her daughter and turn it into

a positive situation. “We named (her scar) ‘pretty,’ so she is very proud of her pretty now,” Jones said. “Now she says, ‘Momma, kiss my pretty,’ so it’s not something negative; it became something that is hers and she’s OK with it.” Romanelli, a registered nurse, said the best way to avoid complications with the heart is to stay educated and do cardio workouts, such as Zumba. According to the AHA, 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease. Dancing yourself sweaty

is one way to avoid these factors. The oldest participant Jones has in one class is 87 and “amazing,” she said. Her daughter, who is 4, also does Zumba with her at home.

Autoimmune condition? Living with an autoimmune disorder can affect every part of your life. It keeps you from enjoying the good things in life… time with your kids, grandkids, activities like golfing, biking, yard work and gardening. Did you know that leaky gut syndrome is a precursor to an autoimmune disease? Did you know that your gut makes up 80% of your immune system? An autoimmune disorder is when your immune system attacks your own body. There is NO CURE for autoimmune disorders, but you can calm down the immune response NATURALLY. My name is Dr. Jeffrey E Forzley, with Lemont Natural Healthcare. I am a chiropractic physician and a holistic practitioner. I am passionate about helping people with chronic health conditions. I have been in practice for 28 years. As a holistic practitioner I evaluate the whole body and the many systems of the body, integrate their relationships, manage the underlying cause and use natural methods to manage autoimmune disorders.

Are you suffering with any of these autoimmune disorders? • Hashimotos hroiditis • Rheumatoid Arthritis • Graves Disease • Multiple Sclerosis • Scleroderma • Sjogre฀’s Sy฀drome • Type 1 Diabetes • Myasthe฀ia Gravis • A฀kylosi฀g Spo฀dylitis • Per฀iscious A฀emia

• Lupus • ALS • Psoriasis • Vasculitis • Celiac Disease • Croh฀’s Disease • Addiso฀’s Disease • Urticaria (Hives) • Eczema • Ray฀auds

Medications are not always the long term answer. Medications can give you temporary relief but they DO NOT ADDRESS THE UNDERLYING CAUSE of your immune imbalance. All medications have side effects. These side effects can be more detrimental than the original symptoms sometimes.

Did you know that medications to treat autoimmune conditions can WEAKEN your immune system and lead to infections and immune degenerative conditions including cancer? There is a time to use medications but not before a NATURAL way to manage the underlying imbalance. So how do I help people with autoimmu฀e disorders? I use a combination of specific NEUROLOGICAL protocols a฀d NUTRITION recommendations… Neuro-Metabolic Therapy. Your Brai฀ (฀ervous System) co฀trols all other systems of the body. It controls your immune system. digestive system, e฀docri฀e (hormo฀e) system… so if you have an immune system imbalance or autoimmune condition, evaluating and managing the nervous system is required for optimal improvement.

Your immune system. There are 2 parts to the front line defense of your immu฀e system… TH1 (white blood cells) a฀d TH2 (a฀tibody respo฀se). hese 2 parts should work in balance together. But when you are suffering from an autoimmune disorder, one part is out of bala฀ce (domi฀a฀t). his leads to an imbalance in TH3 which in turn leads to an autoimmune response.

Testimonials I was diag฀osed with Graves Disease (autoimmu฀e thyroid) three years ago. My endocrinologist recommended surgery to remove my thyroid and put me on medication for the rest of my life. I searched for an alternative treatment to save my thyroid and found Dr. Forzley. Through comprehensive lab testing he found out what was causing my immune system to attack my thyroid. I have been receiving treatments and following his recommendations exactly and my lab numbers are now normal, my endocrinologist is happy, my medication has been reduced in half and I feel better. I highly recommend Dr. Forzley and his natural approach. Sama฀tha R. I sufered from u฀bearable itchi฀g caused by Hives (chro฀ic autoimmu฀e Urticaria) for over 33 years. Steroid medicatio฀s helped the symptoms temporarily but the side effects were bad. After an in-depth blood and metabolic analysis, Dr. Forzley found the cause of my problem. After 4-5 months of strictly following his recommendations, my hives are completely gone and I feel great. Cheryl P. If your immune system is not managed properly, your condition can worsen, result in a poor quality of life, cause a shortening of the length of your life and cause other autoimmune disorders. Holistic Therapy can manage autoimmune conditions by: 1) finding and balancing the underlying cause. 2) lowering the self destructive effects of the immune system. 3) using natural therapies that work with your body.

I can work with your immune system NATURALLY a฀d bala฀ce the TH1, TH2, TH3 a฀d TH17. You can never be cured of an autoimmune disorder. BUT, you can get symptom relief and calm down the immune attack on you own body. You must get a detailed immune system evaluation followed by specific recommendation based on those tests. Guess what stimulates TH1?Vitami฀ C. But if you are TH1 domi฀a฀t, Taki฀g vitami฀ C will WORSEN your immu฀e respo฀se. hat’s right worsen. We need to identify which part of your immune system is dominant in order to calm down the immune system. I do฀’t treat or cure autoimmu฀e disorders. By using specific neurological and nutritional protocols, I help to decrease your body’s i฀lammatio฀, detoxify your body, bala฀ce TH1, TH2, TH3 a฀d TH17 which NATURALLY boosts your immune system. THAT is how I address autoimmune disorders.

Stepping up her game Erin Gentile of Downers Grove to compete at World Irish Dancing Championships By ALLISON HORNE msleditorial@shawmedia.com Seventeen-year-old Erin Gentile has come a long way since she was 8 and fell in love with an Irish dancer’s sparkly dress on stage. Now, the Downers Grove South High School junior is wearing a sparkly dress of her own, and is headed to the World Irish Dancing Championships — for the fourth time. Gentile has been dancing for nine years with the Trinity Academy of Irish Dance, where she has emerged as one of the most promising competitors. At the contests, dancers first compete in a pair for two rounds, and if the judges like what they see, dancers are called back to perform solo. To qualify for the World Championships, one must place in the top 10 percent at regionals or nationals. This year, Gentile placed 21st at regionals, and automatically qualified for the World Championships, which will be held in Boston the last week of March. Last year, Gentile placed in the top 100 at the World Championships, but this year, she’s got her sights set a little bit higher.

What are your goals? This year, it’s to be in the top 50. You do the first two rounds with other people, and if the judges like what they see, they recall you, and you’re in the top third, so you get to do a round by yourself. I’ve made it to the top third in every competition except at the World Championships.

I’m the kind of person that believes in hard work — I didn’t start with that much actual talent, but I have worked up to where I am.

What kind of work goes into preparing for something like that? What we do for the World Championships is usually classes four days a week, and then I try to practice an hour and a half every day on my own that I don’t have practice. It seems like a lot, but I don’t mind it. I also run at Downers South. It’s a lot, but I enjoy everything.

Where do you see yourself taking Irish dancing?

It’s my passion and I’ve loved it since I started and I don’t want to stop — even if it’s not competing. I love performances and I love going to other countries and performing in other cultures. I don’t know what my schedule will be like, but I What are you most looking want to keep up with performances forward to at the and traveling. I teach dance too at World Championships?

GET TO KNOW: CHRISTINE VAN DE WEGE

Oak Brook woman named VP at Hinsdale, La Grange hospitals By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com OAK BROOK — Christine Van De Wege has worked in the cancer field for a long time. If it has taught her anything, it’s that treating the mind is just as important as treating the body. “I’ve heard it over and over again from cancer patients that getting cancer was the best thing that ever happened to them,” Van De Wege said. “It sounds strange to us, but I think what those patients are experiencing is a clarity of what’s important that you don’t necessarily get in life until you’re faced with your life ending.” Van De Wege recently was named vice president of integrated services for Adventist Hinsdale and La Grange Memorial hospitals. She has worked with Adventist Midwest Health since 2011, most recently as executive director of oncology services at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital. She also is leading the design of the new Adventist Cancer Institute based in Hinsdale. One of the most important factors when designing the cancer center and separating it from others, Van De Wege said, is to make sure it doesn’t just have state-of-the-art equipment, but the ability to treat a patient

About Christine Van De Wege Age: 43 Residence: Oak Brook Education: Bachelor’s degree from Vanderbilt University and master’s from Northwestern University Notable: This is the third cancer center Van De Wege is helping design without equipment. “We are working on a patient experience that will be new to the world where each patient will be assigned a nurse navigator and a journey guide to help them throughout their cancer journey,” she said. “We are focusing not just on the main physiological effects of cancer, but the body/mind/spirit connection.” The Adventist Cancer Institute, set to open in fall 2014, will be a 55,000-square-foot building. It will house radiation oncology, medical oncology, nutrition counseling, psychosocial counseling and integrated services. Each room will have its own theme and patients can choose their preference. There also is no waiting room. Instead, patients have options to go to the in-house chapel, the library, entertainment center or gift ship, and they’ll be notified when it’s time to see the doctor.

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. 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 offers 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 finish 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 11, 2013, Dental Health Check-up Day, you and your pet will receive a free dental health gift with the exam*! *while supplies last

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

Hinsdale South

Class: 4A Sectional seed: No. 5 Regional: Hinsdale Central Regional opener: 7:30 p.m. Thursday vs. No. 11 Oak Park or No. 21 Juarez Outlook: Rebounding from a down 2011-12 season, the Red Devils have nearly doubled their win total this winter. But the squad has hit a rough patch of late, dropping five of the last eight games. Hinsdale Central will try to turn that around once the postseason hits and has the advantage of hosting its own Class 4A regional. “We have a regional at home and that’s huge,” said Hinsdale Central coach Tom McKenna. “That makes a big, big difference though our road is very tough.” Netting the No. 5 seed at the Trinity sectional, the Red Devils will most likely face West Suburban Silver conference-foe Oak Park-River Forest in a regional semifinal matchup. No. 4 Bogan would be the probably opponent in the regional final. “We’ve already played them (OPRF) twice and they are a good team,” the coach said. “Both games have come down to the last couple of minutes and beating a team three times is not the easiest thing in the world. And whoever wins that game will be in a battle with Bogan, who is very good. No one game is guaranteed.” The top three seeds at the sectional are Whitney Young, Trinity and Fenwick. “It’s a loaded sectional but not like some years where the teams were untouchable,” McKenna said. Gabrielle Rush leads the team with her 22.5 points per game while Lily Sarros checks in with 12.5 points and 12.5 rebounds per outing. Maddie Roglich (7.4 points) and Jenna Broz (6.5 rebounds) have also been major contributors.

Class: 4A Sectional seed: No. 8 Regional: Little Village ( Chicago) Regional opener: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday vs. No. 9 North Lawndale or No. 22 Little Village Outlook: This season has been a memorable one for the Hornets, who despite having just one returning starter, captured their second consecutive West Suburban Gold conference title. Hinsdale South will have a chance to add another chapter to its unlikely story though the playoff path is far from easy. Receiving the No. 8 seed at the Class 4A Trinity sectional, the Hornets will most likely face No. 9 North Lawndale in a regional semifinal matchup. No. 1 seed Whitney Young, one of the top teams in the state of Illinois, would await in the regional final. “Obviously, it’s a tough regional for us,” said Hinsdale South coach Jen Belmonte. “Whitney Young in there is not the best option. And North Lawndale, looking at their record and who they’ve played, they are pretty good. “I don’t think people have given them (North Lawndale) too much credit. They are right behind Whitney Young in their conference I believe and I think they beat Westinghouse twice who we struggled with at the Montini tournament. It is not an easy regional matchup for us.” What does give Hinsdale South plenty of hope is the play of senior guard Toni Romiti, who is averaging just over 20 points per game. The Hornets have also gotten major contributions from guard Mary Clare Ladd, guard/ forward Mackenzie Kern and post players Kristin Dimitrijevic and Kerry Just.

Close to clinching

Red Devil boys can secure league title with 3 games in 5 days

By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com There is only one thing more fun than playing meaningful games in February, according to Hinsdale Central coach Nick Latorre. Playing meaningful games in March. Latorre’s boys basketball team, which is riding an eight-game winning streak, has accomplished the first part of that equation as the league-leading Red Devils prepare for a crucial fourgame stretch to finish the West Suburban Silver season. The squad heads into Friday’s road matchup against Proviso West with a 7-1 mark in the league. York, which Hinsdale Central plays on Tuesday, stands at 7-2 and Oak Park-River Forest is next with three losses. A game against Lyons Township on Saturday and a Friday, Feb. 15 contest vs. Glenbard West round out the slate. “We have four games in eight days,” Latorre said. “It will be interesting. It will definitely determine the outcome of the league. “We play York in there and Proviso West, they just beat Oak Park and York their last two games. They are playing really well right now.” In fact, Proviso West has won five consecutive conference games after opening up league play 0-4 which included a 69-54 loss to the Red Devils back on Dec. 21. “They have Dominick Roby back,” Latorre said. “Seeing them on tape, they are playing extremely hard. They are really getting after it. They have

We need to take care of the ball and rebound no doubt.” As for LT, the Lions are always dangerous despite their 2-7 conference mark. “They came in last year and beat us,” Latorre said. “They shoot the

heck out of it. We will have to play really well.” Hinsdale Central was last in action on Friday when it beat Metea Valley 50-46 in overtime to move the winning streak to eight games. Matt Rafferty had 24 points and 13 rebounds to lead the way.

Six champs lead Red Devils to regional title By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com In describing his team’s performance at its own regional last weekend, Hinsdale Central wrestling coach Jason Hayes kept it short. “They wrestled pretty good,” Hayes said. “It was a pretty good day.” The Red Devils were better than just pretty good. They had six regional champions and 11 sectional qualifiers as they won the regional title with 230 points. Runner-up Lyons Township tallied 149 points. “Overall, guys wrestled great,” Hayes said. “They stayed tough and

won some tough matches against guys who beat us in the regular season.” Matt Price (106 pounds), George Tolbert (120), Juwon Edmond (138), Ernest Battaglia (152), Tim Glavin (160) and Brian Allen (285) were title

winners. James Manikas (126) and Andrew Pyle (195) made it to championship matches and finished second, while Tom Ward (145), Keith Schmidt (170) and Matt Allen (220) won third place matches. All move on to the sectional, where the competition will be ever more fierce. “This sectional is tough,” said Hayes, who noted Sandburg, Marist and St. Rita are particularly tough opponents. “You have to be ready to wrestle. You can’t get caught up in the records or rankings, which is something we talk about with the kids. No matter the records or the rankings. there are upsets every year. Why not

be the one to pull the upset? “This week is huge as far as the state tournament goes. We have to stay focused, get guys on the podium and get guys downstate.” Hinsdale South finished fourth as a team at the Hinsdale Central regional and qualified six for the sectional. Justin Maslow won a title at 145 pounds, improving to 37-2 on the season. Joshua King was the 220 champ and ran his record to 29-5. Nick Perisin (113) and Mark Kosiek (132) had runner-up finishes while Ed Murphy (120) and Nick Carlson (126) won third place matches to keep their seasons going.


By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com After a disappointing regional meet, Hinsdale Central senior Erin Morgan knew she had to step it up for the sectional meet or it could be her last. Morgan came up big when she needed to at the Hinsdale Central sectional on Wednesday. She was second behind Lyons Township’s Kelsy Kurfirst in the all-around with a 37.625 score. “I was a little shaky at State regionals so I knew I had to gymnastics be confident going into this week,” Morgan said. “I knew When: Friday and it was going to be one of my Saturday, Feb. 15-16 last meets so I went all out.” Where: Palatine High Morgan topped Kurfirst on School, 1111 N. Rohlthe balance beam to win the wing Road, Palatine event. She also qualified individually for state on floor, but her closing highlight was a 9.725 on vault that tied her with Kurfirst for first. “It was definitely very exciting for me,” Morgan said. “I basically did the same exact thing last year, same exact score and everything so it definitely brought my confidence up a lot for state.” The Red Devil standout is hoping for one more highlight to her high school career. “I just want to go in and hit 4-for-4 just like I did today,” Morgan said. “I made state finals last year. I want to at least make it on one event again just to have that experience.” Hinsdale South freshman Maddie Nowak also earned automatic spots at state via top-five finishes in vault (9.525), uneven bars (9.475) and floor (9.425).

CAR Q&A

Opening a shop Q: I am opening a three-bay repair shop and would like your opinion on companies that provide service repair information. A: The first step is to listen to the customer and understand they are in your shop because they have a vehicle problem or just need routine service. I rely on Identifix and Alldata information services. The initial cost may scare you, but keep in mind both will save a lot of time, which equals to a lot of money saved.

More Nash-Kelvinator memories Q: Did a Nash ever pace the Indy 500? I say yes; my retired friends here at the nursing home say no. We are all car crazy and racing fans. Can you tell us more about Nash and that era of the automobile? Elwood K., Worchester, Mass. A: Elwood, you win! Nash was the official pace car of the Indy 500 in 1947 and was driven by George W. Mason, president of Nash-Kelvinator. Mason was a marketing genius who used Nash automobiles in the “Superman” TV series, too. As I’ve touched on in the past, Kelvinator and Nash formed a corporate merger in 1937 when Charles Nash, then CEO and president of Nash Motors, merged his company with George W. Mason’s Kelvinator Corp., known for refrigeration. Mason thus began a major marketing campaign that to this day is respected as novel and very effective. This Nash was one of the 18 cars given to officials at the Indy 500 for their use by George W. Mason, president of Concerning the Indy Nash Kelvinator.

To help people break the habit of texting and driving, technology companies are coming up with solutions. For instance, Xperia SmartTags by Sony can be put on a dashboard or a set of car keys and allow you to change your phone’s settings for driving by touching your NFC-enabled smartphone to the tag. Smartphone applications can make this process even easier. When paired with AT&T’s Drive Mode app, you can automatically disable your phone’s texting and calling capability. The app can be programmed to include an automatic message that’s sent to anyone who texts you while you’re behind the wheel.

The original Batmobile - the one seen in the 1960s TV series starring Adam West - recently sold for $4.6 million at an auction, CNN reported.

‘When I saw all the scores were 800, I kind of freaked out’

“Ronda Rousey. She’s a mixed martial artist and premiere UFC fighter.” Bree Marie Hinsdale

Sarah Minor – sminor@shawmedia.com

Hindale South senior Lia Benes works on the school’s newspaper on Jan. 30. Lia doesn’t just take on this schedule to impress colleges, but she actually enjoys it and grows with jubilation when she reminisces about old times. “I love government,” she said. “I took that last semester and that was probably the most fun class I had ever taken. I had the opportunity to be Speaker of the House in our simulated Congress and it was just so cool.” Lia took the SAT twice for National Merit. After receiving a score of around 2,300 in October, her counselor told her that even with that high of a score, she could do better. Lia went about studying the same way as before, doing practice problems online and just going through her regular routine in school. “I don’t really think you can prep for these standardized tests more than just paying attention in school and learning your grammar really well,” Lia said. “Pacing is really important. I tend to go through the sections really fast and then I go back and look at problems that I had been questioning.” Lia said she couldn’t be-

lieve the score when she got the results from the SAT right at the start of her winter break. Her dad, Kevin, said he knew Lia would do well on the test, but wasn’t expecting a perfect score, especially after she scored perfect on the ACT. “I was stunned,” he said. “It’s pretty amazing to think you can take a test like that and get all the questions right.” Her mom, Debbie, said Lia had a curiosity about the world at an early age and has always wanted to learn more. “She jumped right into computers early on and looked up things on the Internet,” Debbie said. “I started to notice her interest in global news, politics and this was at a young age at a time when I didn’t even think she was aware of what was going on in the world.” It’s this natural wonder and questioning of the world that Lia contributes to her success. “I think that’s part of what makes school not really torture for me, just because I’m curious enough that it usually

doesn’t get boring,” Lia said. Aside from her family, Lia has received guidance and help from strong role models, such as her AP physics teacher, David Bonner. “He’s always wanted me to be more independent and he’s always challenged me,” she said. “He really pushes me outside of my comfort zone, especially when he has us do real-world experiments.” Lia has now been named one of more than 3,000 candidates in the 2013 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. Inclusion in the program is one of the highest honors bestowed upon graduating high school seniors, and she was selected on the basis of superior academic and artistic achievements, leadership qualities, strong character and involvement in community and school activities. She also is busy applying to colleges as a biochemistry major, with the hopes of becoming an anesthesiologist or working in genetics. “Lia is one of the most exceptional students I’ve ever taught,” Bonner said. “I think Lia will be outstanding in any field she chooses.”

“Sandra Bullock. I like her.” Christine Martin Visiting Hinsdale

“Bette Midler. She’s funny.” Donna Reynolds Willowbrook

HSL

WILLOWBROOK — Oscar Wilde once said, “experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.” Seventeenyear-old Lia Benes couldn’t agree more. For her, it was through the ups and downs that she eventually earned a perfect score on both the ACT and SAT standardized tests. “I ask questions all the time and I yell out wrong answers all the time,” said Benes, of Willowbrook. “You just have to get over that embarrassment because that’s how you learn.” Lia is a senior at Hinsdale South High School. In December, she scored a perfect 2,400 on the SAT. As a junior, she got a perfect 36 on the ACT. “It sometimes doesn’t feel like it’s real,” she said. “It hasn’t really settled in yet, but of course I’m happy about it. I’m just waiting for them to tell me their machines broke.” On one hand, Lia does a lot of homework and going to a museum is like her candyland, but on the other, she’s what some people would call surprisingly normal. Lia is a typical teenager who enjoys hanging out with her friends. She also likes to play percussion and dance, is editor of her school newspaper, does Scholastic Bowl and is a member of Hinsdale South’s National Honor Society and Spanish club. “I do a lot outside of school,” she said. “I like to keep busy.” That’s when Lia talked about her class schedule this semester, which to get through each day — combined with her extracurriculars — may be almost more impressive than the perfect scores. If she has an activity, she gets to school around 7:15 a.m. Her weekday starts with English, Advanced Placement chemistry, AP physics and an independent statistics study course because she took calculus last year and the school doesn’t have a more advanced course. Then she finishes with Spanish honors, lunch, band and gym.

If you could have anyone play you in a movie about your life, who would it be?

8NEWS BRIEFS Babbingon withdraws from D-86 election HINSDALE — Jennifer Bab-

ers of Hinsdale Bank and Trust, 25 E. First St., also had noticed fraudulent use of their ATM accounts through a similar manner. Hinsdale police are working with both the investigators of the financial institutions and the Secret Service. There is no known suspect information at this time.

Property damaged

Bank officials at Northern Trust Bank, 4 N. Washington St., reported that between Jan. 1 and 28, local customers reported their ATM accounts had been fraudulently used

to withdraw funds from various Chicago-area banks. Bank officials have preliminarily determined that a skimming device may have been placed in the ATM within the facility, which recorded the numerics and/or PIN numbers of customers using the machine. Between Jan. 26 and 29, custom-

bingon announced that she has filed to withdraw from the April 9 contest for School Board member at Hinsdale Township High School District 86.

She said she and her husband had accepted an offer to buy their residence in Darien and the transaction will close before the election. In the short-term, Babbin-

gon intends to relocate within the district, but the long-term situation is uncertain. Babbingon said in her letter she is “very disappointed to have to

make this decision.”

BERWYN JEWELERS

A VALENTINE FOR MAX

Max Overtop is an odd duck. He grew up in the shadow of an older sister; and she must have so dominated him that to this day he is a bit fearful of women in general. A large man, intelligent and handsome enough that women seek him out, he’s avoided commitment for years. In practice this has meant that he will ‘dump’ any woman he was been dating before Christmas, not so much a matter of being stingy as to avoid any appearance of lasting affection. So I was a bit surprised when, a few years ago, he announced that he had a big date set for Valentine’s Day. “What’s she like?” I queried. Almost expectably, he replied that she was tall and buxom, his ‘kind of woman, not the skinny sort’. He went on to wax enthusiastic over his plan to ‘take her out for a romantic dinner’ and did it to such end that I grew bored and changed the subject. Nonetheless, his enthusiasm for the new woman in his life led me, when I ran into him a week after Valentine’s Day, to risk boredom by asking him how it had gone. ‘A disaster’ he glumly responded. It had all begun when his car wouldn’t start; and then, like a row of dominoes, misfortune after misfortune followed. After fiddling a bit with his battery cables, and getting his new suit a bit greasy in the process, he realize he was in over his head and called his buddy, Mike Pronto. Mike, a frugal man, prided himself on his ability to buy ailing cars others had given up on, restore them to mechanical health and sell them for a quick profit. He always had a spare car or two around and generously offered one to Max. In gratitude, Max brought Mike a case of beer; and in good fellowship Miguel insisted that he and Max have one before Max had to pick up his date. Needless to say, one turned into five; and Max left Mike’s in good spirits, if a little unsteady. In fact, he tripped as he got into his borrowed car and ripped his trousers; but at the time it went unnoticed. It was a typical Chicago Valentine’s Day in that it was wet - both snowy and slushy. Traffic had been slow; and with his late start, Max was more than 20 minutes late arriving at ‘Miss Perfect’s’ home. Anxiety built on anxiety when she greeted him a bit frostily; so he gallantly, if somewhat clumsily, tried to ‘warm’ her up. He commented on her appearance. “You look wonderful!’, he exclaimed as he walked her to the car; then seeing a largish puddle next to the passenger’s door, he romantically swept her up and into his arms and placed her in her seat. Getting in on the driver’s side, he noticed that she hadn’t put on her seatbelt. “Traffic’s bad and the street’s are a bit slick; so put your seatbelt on”, he urged. She said nothing and did nothing. Max turned to her to remonstrate again and only then noticed that she was ‘out cold’. In point of fact he had rendered the knock out blow when he had inadvertently banged her head against

the car door’s frame. Guilt overwhelmed him as he shook her gently. She responded, but seemed unaware of her whereabouts. Having suffered a life of misadventure, Max recognized a concussion when he saw one; and with that he took her to a nearby hospital’s emergency room.

This Valentine’s Day We’ll Make You a Hero!

By the time they were there, she seemed normal; but Max insisted on going in. After a two hour wait, not without incident, she was seen, diagnosed, prescribed for and pronounced able to return home. During the wait Max’s somewhat disheveled appearance and ‘beery’ aroma had, however, attracted the attention of a policeman there on a call. ‘You been drinking?’ he asked of Max. Max lied, of course, and said, “Just one beer, Officer.” The Cop turned to Ms. Perfect. “He been drinking while he’s with you?” Being the soul of honesty, she replied, “No, Officer; but I think he had been before he picked me up.” Pierced to the heart by her judgment, Max faced the Officer again. Stonily, the Officer advised, “I see you driving tonight; and I’ll run you in.” Prudence being the better part of valor, Max took him at his word and he and Ms. Perfect enjoyed a socially and physically frigid cab ride back to her home. Not inviting him in, she delivered her ironic encomium, “Thanks for a great Valentine’s Day. Stay away from me and never call me again.” Chastened, Max returned home. This Valentine’s Day don’t try to top Max’s story! Instead seize the day to demonstrate your love.

GET TO KNOW: HEIDI WENNSTROM

Heidi Wennstrom is the new superintendent at Oak Brook-based Butler School District 53.

Butler School District 53 names new superintendent By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com OAK BROOK — Heidi Wennstrom grew up in a large family, was constantly surrounded by children and knew at an early age she had a passion for education. “My first job right out of college was teaching second grade, confirming that education was what I knew and loved,” Wennstrom said. “There is nothing greater in life than the opportunity to make a difference for children.” Wennstrom recently was appointed superintendent at Butler School District 53 and will assume the role July 1. The application process was not an easy road, though, as the School Board interviewed only seven candidates out of the 75 who applied. Only two were named finalists. Wennstrom said she was excited to be selected. “Butler is a wonderful school district,” she said. “The families, staff and Board of

About Heidi Wennstrom Age: 52 Residence: Antioch Education: Recieved bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Trinity International University and her master’s in educational leadership from Northeastern Illinois University. She also received a Ph.D. in educational psychology from Loyola University. Family: Husband, Gary, married for 32 years; four children (three girls and one boy) and one grandson Activities: Spending time with family, traveling, reading and cooking Education are really focused on the pursuit of excellence in education.” Wennstrom praised the work done by current superintendent Sandra Martin, who will be retiring. Wennstrom said she felt fortunate to be awarded the superintendent position and one of her first goals is just getting to know everyone. A “goal setter by nature,” she said she has a laundry list of personal goals. She wants to ensure children have a high quality of education, engage parents and staff as active part-

ners in the education of children and work with the School Board to ensure transparency. “The true work of educational improvement happens in collaborative, respectful learning environments,” she said. “I love that my job is about supporting people to reach mutual goals to ensure the mission is achieved.” Wennstrom said she will face the challenge everyday to make District 53 stay at its high regard. She also wants to bring a 21st-century environment to the school to serve the students for the future. This includes

technology improvements, improved learning environments and more curricular opportunities. “It is easy to get off track in response to the ever changing political landscape of education,” she said. “Our commitment to and daily pursuit of excellence, ensuring every child learns at the highest possible level, will ensure that students are well-prepared for the next level of learning and beyond.” Wennstrom currently serves as assistant superintendent for teaching and learning at North Shore District 112 and was formerly assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction in Antioch District 34. Wennstrom said because of Butler’s small size, it makes a perfect fit for her — one in which she can directly affect the lives of children. “It’s like being a parent,” she said when describing her job. “There is nothing I won’t do to ensure our children are successful.”

New franchise in Hinsdale brings comfort, joy to seniors By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com HINSDALE — Aging is unavoidable, but happiness and quality of life is not. For those who are fortunate enough to live into their 90s or even 100s, the milestone comes with its share of baggage and some require a caregiver for help. Home Care Assistance, a franchise that recently opened a location in Hinsdale, provides caregivers who aren’t just there to ensure health, but also happiness. “It’s not about me,” said Victor Kanyendo, who has been a caregiver with HCA for two years. “I love what I do and my objective is to be effective and positive. Sometimes it is frustrating — I’m not going to make light of that — but I always remember and tell myself it’s not about me.” HCA offers experienced caregivers to assist hospice patients and seniors either part-time or 24 hours a day across the suburbs. Kanyendo currently serves a client 12 hours a day who suffered complications after knee surgery. He helps

of Japan called Okinawa that has more people living into their 90s and 100s compared to anywhere else. HCA studied Okinawa and saw common traits, such as a healthy diet, physical activity and strong sense of worth. One of the residents featured in a film on HCA’s website is Tusne Ganaha. She is 90 years old and climbs trees every day to haul in large bags of fruit. Through its research, HCA developed the “Balanced Care

Each caregiver is trained in this method, which is what HCA staff said differentiates them from other companies. “When caregivers come to a senior’s home, they see all aspects of their life,” said Margalit Tocher, president of Home Care Assistance. “A traditional caregiver would make sure the senior is clean, safe and fed. Home Care Assistance caregivers are also looking to see if they are happy.”

Caregivers for HCA do usual jobs, such as helping with hygiene, cooking and keeping the home tidy. But they also engage in fun activities — taking clients out for a walk or even a show. “A caregiver with you at home is focused only on you,” Tocher said. “You enjoy more individualized care and more consistent care because it’s always the same team of caregivers.” Becoming a caregiver with HCA isn’t an easy process, though. Janet Simons, manager of client and business development, said she isn’t interested in those who view this work as a temporary job. “Some people apply because they want a job, and others apply because this is what they want to do,” Simons said. “We’re looking for people who are caregivers because they want to be caregivers.” Kanyendo said his job is tremendously rewarding because he is right there at the front lines making a difference. No matter what the age, everyone has highs and lows, but it’s worth it for him to see his clients truly enjoy a high quality of life. “I always say my patient has a right to be irrational, a right to be angry, a right to lose control,” Kanyendo said. “I don’t have that because I’m there not to be angry, I’m there to be in control and make sure my patient reaches any goal they want to achieve.”

New standards raising bar on student achievement Recently, the Illinois State Board of Education voted to raise the cut scores used to determine if elementary and middle school students are meeting State Standards on the Illinois Standards Achievement Test administered in early March. A student’s score on the ISAT assessment is used to classify that student’s achievement level into one of four categories: academic warning, below standards, meets standards or exceeds standards. As a result of this action, students will have to achieve a higher score to meet standards this spring than they did in the past. The ISBE has posted a description of the reasoning behind raising the cut scores that can be found online (http:// www.isbe.net/assessment/htmls/isat-cut-scores13.htm). The collective results of ISAT scores in a school are used to determine if that school is making Adequate Yearly Progress as described in the federal legislation known as No Child Left Behind. As a result of these changes, the percentage of students in the “meets” and “exceeds” categories used to determine if a school is making AYP will decrease for all Illinois elementary and middle schools. Unless Illinois is granted a waiver from U.S. Department

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 See LETTERS, page 11

Have you put off doing your kitchen long enough? Is this the year you have vowed to do something with your cabinets? Have the horror stories of kitchen remodeling made you afraid to even think about it? With prices approaching and surpassing $100,000 for full kitchen remodeling, it is no wonder the Average Joe and Jane feel a little overwhelmed. Enter Kitchen Tune-Up! This locally owned (Downers Grove) National Franchise has been offering minor kitchen remodels for 19 years. Marty Ceranec, the owner, has won numerous awards from KTU for Sales, Customer Service, and Creativity. He received the highest award in 2000 when he won National Franchise of the Year and in addition, is a two time Angies List Super Service Award Winner. We offer Kitchen Solutions for Any Budget. “I think some people get sticker shock when they look at the price of redoing an entire kitchen and are overwhelmed. We work with clients every day who have the same anxieties,” says Marty. KTU can provide anything from the Signature Kitchen Tune-Up to a full blown design and remodel. “The bulk of our work last year was in refacing and door replacement. Door replacement doesn’t change the color, but replaces old particle board doors with new solid raised panel doors utilizing concealed hinges. Refacing, on the other hand, enables one to change their oak cabinets to maple cabinets without buying all new cabinetry,” said Marty. “These two options also save landfill space because we are saving the boxes.” Why have they been so successful? “I think it’s because we follow our trust points (below). Simple things like showing up on time and returning phone calls which is often lacking in the remodeling industry. I have chosen to keep the business small so I am involved in every job with my thee long time installers. By doing this we have become well known as experts in minor kitchen remodeling.” Kitchen Tune-Up also offers cabinetry upgrades such as glass doors, tipout trays, and full extension rollouts as well as counters in laminate, solid surfaces, granite and quartz (Cambria) “The Best Counter Top Around.” When questioned about any regrets, Marty replies, “We often get calls to update the kitchen when the owner is ready. We always wonder why they didn’t do it earlier so they could have enjoyed it sooner.

of Education to implement a new approach to determining AYP (application pending), the previous criteria will continue to apply. This would require that 92.5 percent of students meet or exceed standards on the 2013 ISAT. Information released by the state indicates that the new cut scores will cause the percentage of students classified as meeting or exceeding standards to drop by about 20 percentage points in reading and 25 percentage points in math. Analysis of past results in Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 indicates that the impact may be less severe but still significant. We are likely to see the percentage of students meeting or exceeding standards drop by about 12 points in reading and

15 points in math. The result will be that most, if not all, of our elementary and middle schools will no longer meet AYP under these new criteria. District 205 began the planning and implementation of the Common Core State Standards when they were released in June 2010. Since that time, significant curricular changes have been made in both reading and math. We are in transition, as we are still being held accountable for the previous Illinois Standards through state testing, yet must prepare for the full implementation of the new standards in 2014-15.

A trip in time for a good cause OAK BROOK — Guests took a blast to the past Saturday to a time of flappers, bootleggers and cabaret shows as the Hinsdale Junior Woman’s Club hosted its “Gatsby Gala,” a 1920s-themed fundraiser at the McDonald’s Hyatt Lodge in Oak Brook. Guests were treated with food and drink, auction prizes and casino-style gaming. All the money raised will help benefit the Hephzibah Children’s Association, a nonprofit organization in Oak Park that takes in neglected and abused children. The goal is to eventually raise $150,000. For information about the Hinsdale Junior Woman’s Club, visit hjwc.us.

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 creating 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.

Instead, verify the salesperson’s business or organization and make a payment directly to that. • Be wary of any phone calls or

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

For those who like a perfectly concocted cocktail accompanied by a good DJ, Bar Louie has the killer combination. 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.

Main St., Woodridge Submitted photo Contact: 630The Neverly Brothers will perform at 964-8454, Ballydoyle Pub in Downers Grove. cabana charleys.com Think grass skirt and coconut attire, as Cabana Charley’s whisks you away to a tropical island, complete with tunes. The fun starts with karaoke Thursdays and live music Saturdays, but don’t forget about trivia Tuesdays. Shows change monthly, so be sure to check the website for details on upcoming bands.

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.

Game breakdown

jrossi@shawmedia.com The old adage says defense wins championships. Even in a game that Hinsdale Central’s boys basketball team shot 53 percent (17-of-32) from the field, defense is what lifted the Red Devils to a West Suburban Silver win over York Tuesday that clinched the conference title. “Our defense has been our calling card for the most part during this stretch,” said Central coach Nick Latorre, whose team won its 11th straight game and won the WSS title for the first time since 2000. “We’ve had some great offensive games and some games where we’ve been bad offensively, but our

defense has been pretty consistent throughout this stretch of games.” The Red Devils (17-5 overall, 10-1 WSS) harassed the Dukes into a 13-of-55 shooting performance, forced 16 York turnovers and held Colorado Statebound standout David Cohn to seven points for the game. York had nine players score, but

none reached double figures. “Defense was what won us the game,” Central senior guard Brian Owens said. “We made every possession tough on them.” Owens helped put the Red Devils in control. He scored three points as part of an 8-2 Central run to close the second quarter, then hit a threepointer at the start of the third to ignite a 9-2 run. Those two surges turned what was a 12-11 lead into a 29-15 advantage. Defense has most definitely been a key for the Red Devils, but they also are closing out games well during their winning streak. When the Dukes fouled in order to stop the clock in the fourth quarter, Central made them pay by going 14-of-

17 at the line. They were 4-of-11 at the line before that. “We had a lot of leads early in the season that we blew in the second half, so hanging on the ball, making smart decisions and making free throws, that’s been the real key,” Owens said. The Red Devils’ conference title celebration started in earnest when senior role player Tanner Makris drained a free throw late in the fourth quarter, and it continued in a boisterous locker room after the game. “All the hard work paid off,” Owens said. “One of our goals this year was to win conference and we accomplished that, so we’re real happy right now.” “Anytime you win a cham-

pionship, whatever it is, it’s a good feeling,” Latorre said. “It’s a great accomplishment for our program, a great accomplishment for our team.” Winning the WSS title on senior night was reason to celebrate, but the Red Devils have bigger goals down the road and won’t lose sight of them. It’s back to work at 7:30 p.m. Friday night for the final WSS game at Glenbard West. “Hopefully this isn’t the pinnacle,” Latorre said. “Hopefully we continue to build and continue to get better.” “We just have to keep working hard,” Owens said. “We’ve been working our butts off, so if we keep doing that we feel like good things are going to happen.”

Allen’s goal: ‘Get there ... get it’ Hinsdale Central’s undefeated heavyweight Brian Allen sets sights on state title By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com The state wrestling semifinals haven’t been kind to Brian Allen. In 2011 and 2012, he fell in semifinal matches. Both times he battled back to take third place. The Hinsdale Central junior heads to this year’s state meet with a definite goal in mind. “If I get there (to the title mat),” Allen said, “I want to get it.” With a 44-0 record and a full season of success, including the 285-pound title at last Saturday’s Class 3A Shepard sectional, things are seemingly in Allen’s favor. But after

Allen’s sectional scores Quarterfinals: 9-3 decision Semifinals: Fall, 4:45 Finals: 15-5 major decision his experiences the last two years, he knows not to take anything for granted. The bracket is set up for Allen to face Neuqua Valley’s Andrew Geers (37-0) in the championship match, but Allen knows he won’t walk into the finals. He was slated to meet Glenbard East’s D’Andre Johnson in a first-round match at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, and things would only get tougher

from there as the tourney continues through Saturday. “I feel pretty confident, but after the first round there are two guys (Moline’s Adarios Jones and Lincoln-Way East’s Nick Allegretti) from the Moline sectional who were two of the toughest opponents I faced this year,” Allen said. “I’ve been in the semis twice and lost. I’m focused on getting there.” An overtime defeat to Bolingbrook’s Rob Bain in last year’s semifinals stung at the time, but it also gave Allen an extra boost as he got ready for this season. “I actually didn’t watch that Bain match until last week,” Allen said. “Looking

back on it, it kind of stinks knowing I was so close, but I was lifting weights the next day at 5:30 in the morning. It got me motivated. I’m bigger and stronger, and I’ve improved a lot of stuff. Overall, I think I’m a better wrestler.” The technique has been there all season for Allen, and as he prepared to head downstate, he did so with a humble mindset. “I’m going in with a 0-0 record and taking it one match at a time,” he said. “All the training is in, and right now I have to show up, compete and do my best, and hope that’s good enough to win.” Sophomore teammate Juwan Edmund also will also

be vying for a state title at 138 pounds after he finished third at the sectional with a 4-3 win over Marist’s Matt Sears. The third-place win capped a 3-1 day at the tournament for the regional champion. Edmund (38-9) was scheduled to face Waubonsie Valley’s Howard Beatty in the first round. Beatty topped Edmund 9-8 at 145 pounds early in the season. Matt Price (106), George Tolbert (120) and Ernest Battaglia (152) will be state alternates. James Manikas (126), Tom Ward (145), Tim Glavin (160), Keith Schmidt (170), Andrew Pyle (195) and Matt Allen (220) also competed at the sectional.

approach to his matches. “I’m wrestling smarter. Before I just do something, I’m thinking about it. Every position I’m in, I’m thinking ‘What can I do?’” Maslow said. “I feel like I’m riding kids out well, and I’m taking the first shot usually and that’s better mentally if I get the first takedown because then I know I’m pushing the action.” Maslow (41-3) drew Edwarsville’s James Mosher (28-7) in Thursday’s opening round with St. Charles East’s Keone Derain or McHenry’s Wade Lardy possible quarterfinal opponents. No matter the foe, Maslow was hoping to make his first state trip a memorable one. “I’m going to take it one match at a time and hopefully I’ll place,” he said. “That would be the ultimate goal.” South freshman Joshua King went 2-2 at the sectional and earned a trip to state with a fourth-place showing at 220. His 2-1 overtime win in a backdraw semifinal secured his trip to state. Nick Perisin (113 pounds), Ed Murphy (120), Nick Carlson (126) and Mark Kosiek (132) also represented the Hornets at the sectional but came up just short of earning state berths.

Jerry Stoltz and Barrett Benson each scored 10 points and Larry Motuzis and Justin Ward added seven points apiece.

Justin Maslow found himself in a strange situation early in his third-place match at the Class 3A Shepard sectional — taken down to the mat. In two previous match wins, the Hinsdale South junior was the one forcing the action, but things started off differently against Marist’s Jakada Hall, who earned the first takedown. “I knew he was kind of a funky wrestler, so I knew I had to watch my hips and watch my balance as I was finishing my takedowns,” Maslow said. Maslow rebounded and won the third-place match 8-3, including three takedowns, to secure a better seed as he earned his first trip to the state finals, a result that validated some hard work in the offseason. “It feels pretty good,” Maslow said of qualifying for state. “I feel like I deserve it, though, because I trained hard in the offseason and all that.” Maslow won his first match with a second-period pin, and, after dropping a semifinal match at 145 pounds, won twice in the backdraw to finish third. It was his 6-2 win in the wrestleback semifinals that secured a topfour finish and a trip to state, but taking third was a much better sendoff. “Without a doubt. It definitely feels better,” Maslow said. Maslow planned to spend the days leading up to the state finals improving his conditioning. What he didn’t want to change was his
