By BRIAN HUDSON bhudson@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE — Officials have identified the pedestrian who was struck and killed by a Metra train March 19 as 21-year-old David Conrad Jr. of Downers Grove. Conrad was killed about 9:45 a.m. March 19 when he was hit by an eastbound Metra train in downtown Downers Grove between Main Street and Forest Avenue. “Preliminary information

suggests Mr. Conrad may have intentionally placed himself in the path of the oncoming train,” a release from the Downers Grove Police department stated. “The DuPage County coroner will make the final determination for the cause of death.” Witnesses told police that at the time of the incident, the pedestrian crossing barriers were functioning properly as the Metra train pulled into the Main Street station. The coroner’s office has found Conrad suffered mul-

tiple head and chest traumas, but a full report won’t be ready for up to a few weeks, Coroner Richard Jorgensen said Thursday. It is the third pedestrian accident this month along the BNSF Metra line. Earlier last week, a pedestrian was struck and killed by a train in Hinsdale. Two weeks before that, a Hickory Hills man was killed along the railway near Cass Avenue in Westmont. The causes of those fatalities are both still under investigation.

ELECTION 2013 — VILLAGE COUNCIL SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA Six candidates are vying for three spots on the Downers Grove Village Council in the April 9 election. The winners will serve four-year terms as commissioners on the council, which comprises six commissioners and the village mayor. We asked each candidate for brief responses to broad answers, and we’ve compiled their responses below. We’ve also listed their campaign websites for more on their experience and platforms.

Bob Barnett Occupation: Owner of BarnettBates Corporation, first-term incumbent Years in town: 15 Website: barnettfor council.com

What is the most important issue in this election? Bob Barnett

The biggest challenge facing Downers Grove is rising costs and uncertain

resources. It is an obligation of our elected officials to function as stewards of the public trust and public treasures. It is our responsibility to continually look for ways of providing better quality service while reducing cost — things we’ve done more successfully in Downers Grove over the last four years. While it may come as a surprise to some, the majority of the resources required to provide public services do not come from property taxes. Therefore, the general economy combined with the financial condition of both state and federal governments pose real threats to our ability to deliver those services, but I maintain that calm, focused and diligent leadership as we’ve shown over the last four years can, and will, produce positive results.

Why should voters choose you? Public service is a virtue, and I believe in service to my community — each community, whether it be a church,

club, village, state or nation — is best served when each finds a way to contribute to the whole. Four years ago as I campaigned for Village Council, we talked about a village with a bright future that faced serious economic uncertainty. I urged that a community with frugal, prudent decision making would thrive. And we have! We have a record of successful leadership during difficult times since 2009. I want to continue to be part of the team that leads our village — to continue our progress ensuring a local government that is practical and effective.

Greg Hosé Occupation: Lawyer Years in town: Six Website: greghose.com

What is the most important issue in this election? I want to work together Greg Hosé with fellow commissioners and village staff to continue opening more opportunities for working directly with other governmental units to eliminate redundancies and leverage resources to improve efficient service delivery to all Downers Grove residents. Doing so will reduce local government’s share of our property tax bill while not depriving residents of quality services.

Why should voters choose you? My service to Downers Grove as chairman of the Plan Commission and as a member of the Environmental Concerns Commission has given me perspective on how our government works; yet I am an independent thinker. As a father, I am much more concerned about the village’s future success than political alliances or the next election. My professional work requires me to make decisions based on facts and comprehensive analysis. This combination of perspective, personal investment and practical experience is unique among the field.

Don Jankowski Occupation: Principal/partner at Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP

Years in town: 26

Website: www.don jankowski.com

Don Jankowski

What is the most important issue in this election?

We live in the state of Illinois. The most important issue in this election is the imminent threat that Illinois will discontinue our village funding. The village received over $5 million from the state of Illinois in 2012, about $4 million from income taxes and the balance from the state gas tax. Gov. Pat Quinn, in his recently proposed budget, is looking to slash up to $1 million from the income tax portion that we receive yearly. That is a trend that will continue as Illinois shifts its problems to local communities. We need to embrace lean government principles and broaden our tax base, or we will see higher taxes, diminished services or both.

Why should voters choose you? I have seven years of experience with the Downers Grove Economic Development Corporation, both as a current executive board member and as a past chairman of that board. I understand the challenges and opportunities ahead, and I know how to spread the tax burden over a larger base of great businesses. I have been a partner at a public accounting firm for the last 16 years, and understand how to run a lean and productive organization. I have acted as an effective steward of my business and will do the same for the village. I value diverse points of view, and will consider all input in representing Downers Grove residents.

David Olsen Occupation: Commodities trading regulatory advisor Years in town: 24 Website: davidsolsen.com

What is the most important issue in this election? The efficient management

of village finances to ensure taxes and fees are affordable for residents while maintaining high-quality municipal services is the most important challenge facing the next council. Residents in our community remain conDavid Olsen cerned about the cost of living in Downers Grove — particularly with the implementation of the new stormwater utility. Thus, it is imperative to efficiently manage the village budget and look for ways to save taxpayer money, including consolidating services with other municipalities and local governments, considering privatization of some services and creatively finding other ways to coordinate village services.

Why should voters choose you? I am running to serve the people of Downers Grove by bringing a fresh, independent perspective to the Village Council. Our village is already a wonderful place to live, shop, work and play — but there is always room for improvement. I want to ensure Downers Grove remains a vibrant community for years to come. To ensure this vibrancy, we need effective municipal services delivered in a fiscally responsible manner, a strong business and commercial presence in town and village government which is responsive to all residents. I ask for your vote to bring new leadership dedicated to accomplishing these goals.

Marilyn Schnell Occupation: Retired computer consultant, five-time incumbent Years in town: 33 Website: www .marilynschnell.com What is the most important issue in this election? Our residents demand well maintained roads, stormwater improvements and safe walking routes within our village. Maintaining a balanced budget while addressing infrastructure requests is an ongoing

challenge. To balance these needs, we must continue to expand our efforts to create an environment where viable and healthy businesses thrive. This not only increases revenues but enhances the services available to Marilyn our residents Schnell making Downers Grove a more desirable place to live. Working collaboratively with other taxing bodies to deliver like services frees up existing monies which can be used to enhance village services.

Why should voters choose you? My voting record proves that I have the experience and independence to represent the residents of Downers Grove. I do my home work, listen and make decisions based on the best interest of the community as a whole. I helped establish the Economic Development Commission and served on committees dealing with traffic, transportation, affordable housing and residential redevelopment. I presently serve as mayor pro tem and sit on the Finance and Administrative Committee. I am active in our community serving as an advisory board member for Helping Girls Navigate Adolescence. As a council member, I learn from these experiences to better serve our community.

Sue Walaszek Occupation: Human resources compliance consultant Years in town: 14 Website: www .susanwalaszek.com What is the most important issue in this election? The most important issue in this election is how to get more revenue and how to spend it. Sue Downers Grove Walaszek residents are feeling the pain of increased taxes, fees, rates

TAX TIPS

WHAT IS THE AMT? The Alternative Minimum Tax is the way the tax code gets you to pay more tax when you have certain tax preference items. Since the rates have been lowered substantially, both for our regular income and for qualified dividends and long term capital gains, we see many taxpayers with AMT. So if you have certain tax preference items, and your total tax rate is lower than 20%, you probably will “kick into” AMT. Some of the more common are: • Taxes, including IL Income (now 5%) or Sales Tax and Real Estate Tax • Qualified Dividends and/or Long Term Capital Gains What the AMT does is to refigure your tax using different income and deduction items. This is done on Form 6251. If your tax using this form is higher than your regular tax, the difference is added in as AMT tax. STRAUSS TAX SERVICE can prepare your 2012 tax return, check is you “kick” into AMT, answer your questions, plan for 2013 taxes and save you money.

partner with other entities to reduce expenses without sacrificing the quality or quantity of village services. And we need to prioritize our spending and proactively seek community involvement in village decisions.

NEWS | A: Ludwig’s Angina is the name of an infection of the floor of the mouth, under the tongue. It is a type of cellulitis, a common skin infection caused by bacteria. Ludwig’s Angina often occurs in the wake of an infection of one or more of the roots of the teeth, as a result of an abscessed tooth or some kind of trauma. The condition is referred to as sublingual space infection or submandibular space infection. Symptoms include swelling, pain and redness of the neck, fever, earache and drooling. The drooling is caused by a patient’s inability to swallow saliva. The tongue may also be swollen and forced up against the roof of the mouth. Ludwig’s angina is a serious matter since the swelling that accompanies it can develop quickly and block a patient’s airway. It can be an emergency situation, requiring in some cases that a dentist or physician put a breathing tube down a patient’s throat.

functions,” Sole said. “If elected, one of the first things I will do is look at the budget line by line and look at what is being underutilized, and what can we fund better, or cut back in some cases.” Downers Grove Township operates on an approximate budget of about $3 million. All revenue comes from real estate taxes. Less than 2 percent of the taxes that property owners pay operate the township. Wurster said over his term the township has addressed budget cuts by saving $350,000 through salaries and employee benefit cuts. He said his own salary has been cut by $120,000 over the length of his term, salaries of trustees were cut from $6,000 to $4,800 annually, and the township clerk’s salary was cut from $27,000 to $20,000. “We have also cut benefits from staff, and changed some of our staff positions from full-time to part-time in an effort to save more money over the past few years,” Wurster said. But Sole believes more can be done when it comes to the operating budget. She said the tax rates have gone up for the past three years, and that, if elected, she will look at ways to adjust expenses so that the township does not have to keep raising the tax levy each year. “I would look to do a complete evaluation of all their expenses and see where more cuts could be made,” Sole said. “I think we can operate more efficiently without having to raise the levy each year.” Sole also believes Downers Grove Township needs to develop a five-year strategic plan so they have some kind of guide when it comes to budgeting and serving the needs of township residents more long-term. For years, Sole said the township has been searching for an identity and role, and that long-term planning would assist in identifying itself to residents. For Wurster, one of his goals if re-elected will be to look at a possible cost sharing with municipalities for one of the township’s most popular programs, the Senior Citizen Dial-A-Ride Program.

Frank Wurster Age: 74 Residence: Downers Grove for 35 years Political affiliation: Republican Occupation: Retired from Lucent Technologies, Inc.; Downers Grove Township superviFrank sor since 2009 Wurster Community service: Member of the Westmont Lions Club; active at St. Mary of Gostyn Church

Karol Ann Sole Age: 60 Residence: Westmont for nine years Political affiliation: Democrat Occupation: Industrial engineer for more than 20 Karol Ann years Sole Community service: Membership in the National Association of Parliamentarians

The program provides seniors with free transportation for doctors visits, shopping and other needs. Wurster said it could be cost-efficient to partner with local municipalities in helping offset costs of the program. “Naperville Township has done this, where they have partnered with the city of Naperville to expand the program,” Wurster said. “I believe a similar thing could be done with some of the municipalities in our own township.” When it comes to one of the other roles of the township — maintaining unincorporated roadways — Sole believes more can be done in partnerships with other municipalities as well. “I have seen incidences where plow trucks, while clearing streets, will actually lift their plows for a couple blocks to pass through municipal areas, then lower them when they get back on township roads,” Sole said. “Things like that can be more effectively managed with a little more cooperation between other entities.”

As a resident of Downers Grove for more than 29 years, I would encourage the voters of Downers Grove in the April 9 election to vote against incumbents Robert Barnett and Marilyn Schnell. The village has gone from a responsible caretaker of the people’s business, to we are going to impose on you what we think is best for you. I live next to the Valley View retention pond that the village inherited from the original developer. The village neglected the pond for 40 years. In 2012, the village decided to “naturalize” the pond. The village decided to spend more than $500,000 to make our little lake into a swamp. The village then conducted numerous meeting with the residents for their input. The residents voiced unanimous strong objections to the plan, but the council decided to go ahead anyway. The village then asked for the residents’ suggestions to improve the plan. The residents provided numerous thoughtful ideas including don’t do anything and don’t spend the money. The village imposed their original plan. The village wasted hundreds of our man-hours to impose what they decided in the first place. It’s time to take our village back.

A dreary cold rainy afternoon could not stop residents from attending our fourth annual Local Government Week: Open House on March 9. The doors opened to reveal the inner workings of township government. The township supervisor, elected officials and staff, along with senior and youth volunteers, greeted residents with the aroma of grilled hot dogs, chips and beverages. More than 200 residents attended. Residents could view colorful backdrops and displays that COMMUNITY highlighted township programs. VOICE Additionally, residents could apply for passports and RTA cards. The Frank DuPage Sheriff, Illinois Student Wurster Assistance Corp and FISH Pantry (located in the township building basement) also shared information and resources. Visitors were further informed of our two new not-for-profit groups — “Oak Hill and Oak Crest Cemeteries Foundation” and “Friends of Downers Grove Township Senior Citizens.” The Cemeteries Foundation will provide for restoration of our two historic cemeteries. The Senior Citizens Foundation will seek to enhance the quality of lives for older adults by acting as a resource for funding programs, services, education and information. Visitors to our highway department, which maintains the township’s unincorporated roads, shared positive feedback about work completed throughout the year, which included: the curb and gutter program, brush pick-up and paving. Brush pick-up begins April 1 and runs through May 11. Call the highway office or check our website for pick-up in your area. The highway department’s biggest success is the Electronic Recycling Program. Since 2009, 174,788 pounds — 87 tons — of recycled electronics have been received. That equates to the weight of 14 elephants. Every year, the open house offers another opportunity for recycling at our township location. Normal drop-off is every third Saturday of the month from 8 a.m. to noon (except holiday weekends) at the Highway Garage, 318 E. Quincy St. in Westmont. The Assessor’s Office was pleased with residents’ interest in their department. Their friendly staff created informational displays, answered questions and allowed residents to view their parcels. Their quest was to make a sometimes-confusing process more understandable for the general public. Call us at 630-719-6600 with questions, or visit dgtownship.com. The FISH Pantry can be reached by calling Ruth Anderson at 630-964-7776. The 2014 Open House will be held on Saturday, March 8. Hope to see you then.

Bomb squad called in for what Updates to grant program could encourage appears to be mortar round more sidewalks along Ogden Avenue a.m. to the 6500 block of Fairview Avenue. They located the device in the car, confirmed it appeared to be a mortar shell, and called in the bomb squad. The mortar was removed and destroyed by the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad, and officials determined it was not a live explosive. “The process resulted in a loud noise that could be heard throughout the area,” a Downers Grove police news release stated. “Area residents were notified of this incident, and every precaution was taken to ensure the safety of the public.”

SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA DOWNERS GROVE — DuPage County Sheriff’s officials detonated what was believed to have been an unexploded mortar round — but proved to be a dud — in Downers Grove the morning of March 22. According to police, the individual was hosting a garage sale and was told by a patron that the device on display could be a live explosive.

Chocolate Easter Eggs Are Here!!

By BRIAN HUDSON bhudson@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE — Downers Grove leaders are considering ways to refocus taxpayer investment along Ogden Avenue to encourage projects with greater public benefit. The proposed changes, which were discussed at last week’s village council meeting, would narrow the parameters of the program to encourage more front facade improvements and would do more to introduce sidewalks along the Downers Grove thoroughfare.

It would be just the latest set of revisions for the Ogden Avenue Site Improvement Strategy Grant Program, which was introduced in fall 2010. Under the OASIS initiative, the village uses a portion of property tax revenues collected from within the Ogden Avenue business corridor to offer 75 percent matching grants to businesses planning exterior renovations. For instance, in January, the village approved $187,000 for two grants that would help Ogden Avenue businesses renovate the front of the building and install

“In my mind, there’s a lot of public improvement that’s missing from these.” Bob Barnett Commissioner

new signs. None of the grant money goes toward interior renovations. At that time, however, Commissioner Bob Barnett opposed the two grants because he did not feel they demonstrated the best use of public dollars. “In my mind, there’s a lot of public improvement that’s missing from these,” Barnett said at the time. The proposed changes last week were, in part, a continuation of Barnett’s push in January. The latest measures would cap the village’s contribution at 50 percent for facade renovations in the side and rear. Any improvements at the front of the lot would still be matched at 75 percent. The council has also considered making sidewalk construction a prerequisite for funding. Grant recipients would have to construct a sidewalk — with help of village matching funds — and include that within the cost limits. Meanwhile, the village would limit the total dollar amount that could be awarded. Previously, businesses could earn $100,000 or $150,000 for buildings smaller or larger than one acre, respectively. The new measures would cut that in half. Officials say it would allow the village to award more grants. The two grants worth $187,000 awarded in January, for example, by themselves exhaust three-quarters of this year’s budget for OASIS. “One of the reasons we wanted to revisit this is there was a view there wasn’t enough private money being put into toward those public improvements in the right mix,” Mayor Martin Tully said.

Q: My son started playing the drums two years ago. He recently told me that he occasionally hears ringing in his ears ater he practices. Should I be concerned about this? A: Yes. Hearing tinnitus (a ringing or Dr. Terri Lightbody buzzing sound (630) 580-5777 in your head or ears) ater being exposed to loud sounds can be a bad sign. When people are exposed to certain loud sounds, they may experience tinnitus or a “stufy” feeling in their ears. his tinnitus generally happens when damage is being done to the delicate inner mechanism of the ear. Once the damage is done, it cannot be reversed by medical or surgical intervention.

It is suggested that more than 12% of children have sufered permanent hearing loss caused by excessive noise exposure. he good news is that this type of hearing loss is preventable! We need to reduce the risk of noiseinduced hearing loss by limited exposure to excessively loud sounds. Even a moderately loud sound can be damaging if exposed to it for a long period of time. I encourage kids to turn down the volume and move away from loud sounds when possible. If this isn’t possible, then ear protection should be used.

We have reduced compensation for trustees, eliminated benefits and have never offered any per diems for the extra work each trustee does on volunteer committees and with community groups the township coordinates and supports. The township has opted to meet once a month to devote more time to working directly with residents and gathering input from the community to improve services. Our presence at local chambers of commerce, senior citizen and youth service activities, and meetings with unincorporated residents has significantly increased and we make every effort to continually improve accessibility and accountability.

League of Women Voters endorses stricter policies To the editor: The League of Women Voters of the United States believes that the proliferation of semi-automatic assault weapons and high-capacity ammo clips is a major health and safety threat. When the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff League recently reviewed mass murder statistics, most of the weapons used were assault weapons or semi-automatic handguns. High-capacity ammunition magazines enable a shooter to fire off many rounds rapidly without having to reload, making possible some of the worst mass murders ever committed. Given the recent heart-breaking killing of young, innocent children in what should have been a safe learning environment, it is clearly time that our state and federal legislators take action. The League of Women Voters of Downers Grove/Woodridge/ Lisle joins our fellow leagues in supporting strong federal and state measures to limit the accessibility and regulate the ownership of semi-automatic assault weapons and high-capacity magazines by private citizens. It should be very hard for questionable people to purchase such items. Adequate resources should be allocated to regulate and monitor gun dealers. In addition, the league believes that strict penalties for improper possession of assault weapons, and for crimes committed with assault weapons and high-capacity ammo clips, should be enforced. This is not about being “anti-gun” or “gun control”, this is about sensible gun policies for our health and safety. Please join the League of Women Voters in requesting that our legislators pass such sensible laws, thus becoming good ancestors to our children.

How to keep kids entertained all summer long

S

ummer vacation often starts with high expectations. Children are excited about the prospect of fun days outdoors playing with friends, while parents anxiously await relaxing months without the responsibilities of school and extracurricular clubs. But once summer vacation arrives and the first few days have passed, parents often find that the litany of cheers and giggles transform into a chorus of “I’m bored.” Many parents pore over ideas that will keep their children busy throughout the summer. Many activities that come to mind tend to be expensive, so if cutting costs is a priority, parents might need to think outside the box to come up with entertaining ideas that won’t break the bank.

Camp Summer camp is a popular way for kids to spend their summers, but many camps are expensive.The American Camp Association has found that overnight camps can cost anywhere from $325 to $780 a week. Day camp fees may be $100 to $275 per week. Parents who send their children to camp for an entire season might pay anywhere from $3,000 to $9,000 for the seven- to nine-week program. Parents looking for an alternative to costly camps should consider local programs that offer summer activities. Libraries, schools and childcare centers may have programs that run

the length of summer and are considerably less expensive than more formal camps. A YMCA or even a swim club may also put together activities. Parents whose children attend afterschool sporting classes, such as karate or soccer, may find that the organizations offer a camp or summer program.

Day Trips If a parent is off for the summer, then day trips may be a possibility. Schedule a few day trips to different locations that the kids are excited to see. Newspapers routinely print “Go See It” or “Just Go” listings that highlight local events. The family can gather around the table and decide which outings would be interesting and then mark them on the calendar. Some parents purchase season passes to amusement parks and take the kids several times over the summer. In either case, bring snacks and lunch from home when possible to keep costs in check.

Kid Swap Chances are many of your neighbors are also facing the same difficulties as they try to find ways for kids to spend their summer afternoons. Parents can get together and set up a schedule for entertaining the kids. For example, one parent is responsible for the whole lot one day, while the next day another parent takes a turn. This gives parents the opportunity to take a break from parental

responsibilities and enjoy some quiet time. And for the children, time spent in a pool, watching movies, playing video games, or riding bikes is often more enjoyable with friends in tow.

cool off during the hot summer days and get a chore done. While parents should not expect a perfect job, they can rest assured that the kids will have at least an hour of fun in the sun and water. Fun Projects Set aside a patch of the yard Children often want to feel that children can turn into their useful, and may enjoy the responsibility of some easy tasks in own personal gardens. Encourand around the house -- so long age digging in this area and provide seeds or seedling plants as the tasks are fun. Washing the car with a hose and a bucket as well as kid-sized gardening tools. Each day the kids can of sudsy water is a fun way to

check on the progress of their gardens. Some home-improvement and craft stores sponsor free learning activities for children. They can be held in the morning or afternoon and will teach interesting skills that can be put to use again at home. Summer vacations are soon to arrive, and parents can be armed with a list of enjoyable – yet inexpensive – ways to keep kids busy.

t can be difficult to envision warm summer days when the wind is blowing and the snow is falling. However, the winter months are a great time to explore summer camp options. In fact, many camps have strict enrollment timelines that require decisions to be made prior to spring. Attending summer camp has been a tradition in the United States for more than 150 years. Statistics indicate that around 30 million American kids attend summer camp each year. There are many benefits to summer camp. Camp enables children to stay engaged during the summer when there may be limited interaction with school friends. It also gives parents both a safe and viable daycare solution during the summer. Summer camp pulls together children from different neighborhoods, social classes and backgrounds, which can make

it a good place to meet new people – some of whom may become lifelong friends. Camps also provide a variety of activities that can challenge children to try new things that go beyond their comfort zones. Some children are very receptive to the idea of attending summer camp. Others need a little coaxing. But summer camp should never be forced on a child who does not want to go. In such instances, consider local daytime programs that may fill the void instead of programs that require being away from home. Once the decision for summer camp is made, there are some questions to answer. • What are your inances like? Do you have a budget for summer camp? • What size camp do you desire? • Should the camp be co-ed or single sex?

To the editor: The League of Women Voters of the United States believes that the proliferation of semi-automatic assault weapons and high-capacity ammo clips is a major health and safety threat. When the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff League recently reviewed mass murder statistics, most of the weapons used were assault weapons or semi-automatic handguns. High-capacity ammunition magazines enable a shooter to fire off many rounds rapidly without having to reload, making possible some of the worst mass murders ever committed. Given the recent heart-breaking killing of young, innocent children in what should have been a safe learning environment, it is clearly time that our state and federal legislators take action. The League of Women Voters of Downers Grove/Woodridge/ Lisle joins our fellow leagues in supporting strong federal and state measures to limit the accessibility and regulate the ownership of semi-automatic assault weapons and high-capacity magazines by private citizens. It should be very hard for questionable people to purchase such items. Adequate resources should be allocated to regulate and monitor gun dealers. In addition, the league believes that strict penalties for improper possession of assault weapons, and for crimes committed with assault weapons and high-capacity ammo clips, should be enforced. This is not about being “anti-gun” or “gun control”, this is about sensible gun policies for our health and safety. Please join the League of Women Voters in requesting that our legislators pass such sensible laws, thus becoming good ancestors to our children.

Restaurant reviews

flour + wine rises beyond expectations The chill of a recent Saturday afternoon sparked the idea of finding a restaurant with wood-fired pizza and a relaxed, romantic setting in which to enjoy it. But Neapolitan pizza turns out to be only part of the attraction at flour + wine in Glen Ellyn, where the rest of the menu is as inventive as its take on the Italian classic. Our server delivered a carafe of water to our candlelit table and went over specials, which included a ricotta and honeycomb appetizer that he described as a sweet bruschetta that also could pinch hit as dessert. Keeping it in the back of our minds for later in the meal, we opted to open with the house salad, but never expected the wow factor. Sublimely fresh, the organic butter lettuce turned up pretty as a picture with ribbons of fennel, toasted candied pecans, Gorgonzola and a delicate house vinaigrette. My dining partner picked the hanger steak accompanied by shallots, tomatoes, fennel, arugula, fingerling potatoes

and citrus chimichurri. Cooked medium rare, it was flavorful and delectable, but we will order it medium next time. With the word flour in the name of the restaurant, it was a welcome surprise to see gluten-free pizza crust and pasta as options. It was especially nice to hear the pizza still would be cooked in the wood-burning oven tucked inside the kitchen — a rare treat for the gluten-intolerant among us. I ordered the “local sausage and raisins” pizza. Not only was the crust a far cry from often cardboard-like substitutes, but it also was crispy from the hot oven with great texture that left you feeling anything but deprived. The high heat had caramelized the golden raisins to a succulent sweetness, a perfect complement to the tasty crumbled sausage paired with toppings of fennel, Romano, mozzarella and sesame seeds. Curious to know whether the sausage was available in the area, we learned from our server that it’s made at a farm in Bartlett. The restaurant accepts orders from folks

First Folio play to unravel mystical mystery By ALLISON HORNE msleditorial@shawmedia.com When First Folio Theatre co-founders Alison Vesely and David Rice settled on producing “Underneath the Lintel,” the husband-and-wife team from Clarendon Hills knew they were in for a fun but difficult run with the acclaimed play. As a one-person monologue, the concept behind “Underneath the Lintel” is deceptively simple. Vesely didn’t have to search far for her lead performer, because from the very beginning, she had one person in mind — Kristine Thatcher. “She just has that wonderful, thoughtful quality,” says Vesely, who directs. “She’s very in touch with emotion, and she’s also a thinking actress, which is something required for this story. It’s an amazing journey, and before she was cast, I just kept hearing her voice saying those lines.” Vesely and her husband are long-

time friends of Thatcher, who resides in Lansing, Mich., after a 20-year stint in Chicago. “It’s been a marathon, but it’s been fascinating,” Thatcher says. “It takes all your strength, but Alison has been a wonderful director. She’s very collaborative and has been a huge help to me. I’ve never done a one-person show, and I have to say, I admire all the people I know that have.” Thatcher plays a Dutch librarian, a perfectionist whose life is turned upside down when a book is returned 113 years overdue. Intrigued, she determines to find out who returned it. The story follows her on the hunt, which leads to figuring out how to live her life in the moment. As the play opens, the librarian is poised to share a startling and profound discovery with the audience as lecture guests. The piece was written by Glen Berger as a male role, but when theaters began to adapt it for women, Berger

wrote a female lead option. While having just one person on stage the entire time might seem bland, Vesely believes it’s the exact opposite. “It’s really a journey, and when you have an actress of this caliber, you want to get sucked into the journey,” Vesely says. “There’s a certain amount of suspense as she leads you step to step. She certainly keeps you interested with the moments of humor, despair and joy.

Kristine Thatcher stars in “Underneath the Lintel.” There’s also slides, and all of these elements that she brings to the ‘lecture’ that makes it feel like she’s not giving a lecture at all, but a living, breathing piece of theater. “She has such a command of her instrument — poise, expression, physical embodiment,” Vesely adds. “She’s fascinating to watch.”

Which Neuropathy Symptoms Do You Suffer From?

Reporter | Progress • mysuburbanlife.com • Wednesday, March 27, 2013 • SD

f you suffer from a single one of these torturous symptoms- numbness, tingling, burning or sharp nerve pain, then read on ..A new breakthrough treatment could change your life. Neuropathy can affect every part of your life - walking, sitting ,sleeping, socializing, your ability to enjoy your relationships and so much more. If you have tired “everything” (Anodyne therapy, physical therapy, Lyrica, Neurotin or other meds ) without getting the results you want then this may be the most important information that you ever read. There is a simple reason that most treatments fail....because at best they only cover up your symptoms and do not heal your damaged nerves. Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that affects people in every walk of life. It is estimated that 20 million Amer-

I

icans and 60% of diabetics suffer from this disorder. There are many kinds of neuropathy, the symptoms of which include burning, tingling, weakness, numbness, paralysis, and dull to excruciating pain - especially in the hands and feet. Although many neuropathies have no known causes, neuropathy is often associated with other conditions. Examples are: Diabetes, shingles, toxins, autoimmune disorders, bulging discs that compress on nerves, spinal stenosis, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and poor nutrition. Statin drugs and chemotherapy can also cause neuropathy. For the last two years Dr. Susan Kelenyi, DC of Glen Ellyn, IL has worked extensively with peripheral neuropathy patients. Dr. Kelenyi describes peripheral neuropathy as damage to

the nerves, which transmits information from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. “This can result in pain, loss of feeling, and inability to control muscles, such as difficulty with walking. As with any other condition, there is no “one size fits all” remedy for those suffering from neuropathies and treatment may vary depending on the cause and severity.” However, many individuals can and do find relief using natural remedies. And this is where Dr. Kelenyi steps in. Of the many causes of peripheral neuropathies”, says Dr. Kelenyi, “ a major one comes from a metabolic

DESPITE WHAT MANY DOCTORS MAY TELL YOU PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY CAN BE EFFECTIVELY TREATED If you have tried “everything... (Lyrica®, Neurotin®, physical therapy, orthotics for your shoes, even injections) without getting the lasting results you want then you may be the perfect candidate for our Neuropathy Program. If you are tired of the individualized merry-go-round of cover up care, then you need to try my program. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. If you’ve been suffering for a while and you’re tired of treatments that only give you temporary relief, then I may have the answer you’ve been waiting for. Dr. Susan Kelenyi, Chiropractic Physician, is offering a risk risk-free introduction to this program. For a limited time you will receive my

condition. You cannot drug your way out of a metabolic condition. It requires a change in lifestyle.” Dr. Kelenyi says “Diet is crucial when addressing peripheral neuropathy, especially in diabetics and autoimmune disorders. Harmful foods to be avoided include alcohol, sugar, processed foods, fast foods, junk foods, sodas of all types, foods sprayed with pesticides, and trans-fatty acids. Sweeteners and additives contained in diet soda and processed foods such as MSG and aspartame can negatively impact the nervous system.” As a chiropractor with advanced training in Functional Medicine and Functional Neurology, Dr. Kelenyi performs specific metabolic and neurologic tests to help determine what is causing the problem. There are a few primary types of neuropathies: Large or small diameter or both as well as motor. If jerking is involved then it can be as much a problem in the brain due to trans-neural degeneration as it is in the peripheral nerve. A thorough and comprehensive exam ensures an accurate diagnosis.

Dr Kelenyi states that her peripheral neuropathy recovery program is a combination of different cutting edge techniques and protocols. “ We may use electrical stimulation with 7.83 Hz frequencies, exercise with oxygen, vibration, spinal decompression, cold laser therapy along with brain balance therapies With this layered approach we can “wake up” the nerves so they can functional normally again and re-educate nerve pathways that have gone hay-wire. “While we wake up your nerves, we will support their need for fuel and activation.” Dr. Kelenyi says “Our solutions are non-drug, non-surgical approaches, that are researched based and determined by prior clinical success. The reason we achieve excellent outcomes is because we take both a metabolic and neurological approach in our program.” She says its a very rewarding way of practicing. “We get chronically ill people coming from all over the Chicagoland area, even out of state, to our clinic. The most important thing for these patients is results. We get results.”

Travel ideas for active seniors hose who have said goodbye to the work-a-day grind now have many hours to settle down and relax. People who have continually put off vacations in lieu of work responsibilities may now have all the time they need to explore the world. Traveling for seniors can be rewarding and relaxing. Those with a substantial retirement nest egg have numerous destinations at their disposal. Mature vacationers travel more frequently and stay longer than any other age group. Travel ranks among the top leisure activities for men and women over 50, according to the Web site Suddenly Senior. Seniors can find several travel advantages at their disposal. Also, thanks to special senior discounts, travel may be even more affordable than first expected. While certain destinations are not always practical for certain age brackets, there are many places to which seniors can visit comfortably and enjoy a wealth of memories. • Theme parks: Although theme parks may seem carved out entirely for the adventure-seekers, there are many other more placid activities that would appeal to those who prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground rather than looping through the air on a rocket-propelled coaster. With animal preserves, water parks, fine dining, and a bevy of hotels either in the park or directly on the outskirts, theme parks provide many

T

activities for older travelers. Although theme parks require a lot of walking, many provide wheelchairs or motorized scooters for those who need to get off of their feet. They also make a great option for seniors who will be traveling with the entire family, including children. • Beach resorts: Provided flying is medically safe, a beachside vacation can be the ideal trip for seniors looking for the utmost in relaxation. For those who have passports, the possibilities are endless. Those who prefer to remain on relatively domestic soil can retreat to Puerto Rico, south Florida, the California coast, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. • Cruising: Cruising is a preferred vacation choice for the 50+ set because it offers the convenience of an all-inclusive package and transportation all in one. With the myriad activities offered on board, cruises are a versatile vacation option for seniors. Also, there is no need to worry about traveling far for meals and other entertainment options, as everything is self-contained on the cruise ship. For more active seniors who enjoy the daily getaway, excursions

in ports of call can provide the variety desired. • Guided tours: Seniors who want to experience a piece of history can sign up for tour packages backed by reputable companies. The tours may involve train or bus travel, and various attractions will be visited. At the end of the tour, individuals can choose to extend the vacation by checking into a hotel nearby. • RV trips: Another self-contained vacation that is entirely up to the people traveling is vacationing by recreational vehicle. Seniors can customize their routes depending on which areas they want to see. Companies like Cruise America RV enable people to rent an RV so they needn’t worry about the expense of buying one outright. However, should

RV traveling become addictive, there always is the option of buying a camper later on. Setting an itinerary and then establishing the pace enables travelers to tour the country or cross the border as desired. From beaches to national parks, many areas offer RV hook-up areas and amenities. • Exotic tour: Seniors who were never able to afford or spare the time for an extensive vacation may now want to visit those exotic locations that have beckoned for years. Now could be the time to book a ticket for Europe and visit all of the cities that have made the history books. Those looking for even more adventure can travel to the South Pacific and explore tropical islands. Others may want to go “down under” and experience the rugged Outback or the culture of Australian city centers. With a bevy of free time and fewer restrictions holding them back, seniors could be ready for the next great travel adventure.

fewer and fewer people seem to pick up the phone and make calls as they once did. Instead, they’re texting and updating social media posts. They’re also e-mailing one another. Older adults who have no access to this technology could be left out of the mix. This is a way for seniors to stay close to family. • Convenient check-ins: At times when a full-blown conversation may not be practical, having a quick method to check in with a loved one can make social media advantageous. Men and women can send a quick text to their parents to find out how they’re feeling or if they need anything. Such ready access can provide some peace of mind to adults concerned about their elderly parents. • Online shopping: Seniors who don’t get out much or who cannot safely drive a vehicle might not be able to shop as often as they would like. Having Internet access and experience with browsing Web sites enables older men and women to shop from reputable Web sites who ship items directly to the house. With the vast array of items now sold online, anyone can have their choice of items and not be forced to settle because of their age. • Improved feelings of well-being: Avoiding feelings of isolation and loneliness can benefit older men and women. A study by Dr. Shelia Cotten, a sociologist and associate professor from the University of Alabama, Birmingham, revealed that Internet use was associated with a 30 percent decrease in depressive symptoms among older adults who used it regularly, while other studies have shown similarly impressive results. • Working the mind: Going online, chatting on social media or simply writing an e-mail works areas of the brain. Typing also helps improve manual dexterity. These factors can be beneficial for seniors looking to stay sharp. Using the Internet as a form of communication is a growing trend among the 50-plus demographic. It enables them to stay connected with family and the world in a variety of ways.

BOOMERS |

he Internet and related technologies have been a game-changer for people of all ages. The instant connectivity made possible by these advancements has been valued by young adults and children for years. But now social media is attracting an entirely different demographic – seniors. More than just a method of channeling information to the comfort of home, the Internet and the various social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram, are ways for older adults to stay connected with friends and family. For seniors faced with mobility issues, social media helps to bring the world to them. Despite the stereotype that seniors do not want to learn to use new technology, many seniors are getting on board. Findings from the Pew Research Institute show that social networking use among Internet users ages 50 to 64 grew by 88 percent between April 2009 and May 2010. The research also found that the percentage of those 65 and older using social media grew from 13 percent to 26 percent during that same stretch. Although young adults continue to be the primary users of social media, older users are gaining momentum and surpassing youth in the number of new users. Individuals who are not yet utilizing social media to manage their communication efforts may be inspired by these benefits to doing so. • Photo and video sharing: The majority of photos being taken today are digital, as fewer people are making prints of their photos. Rather, they are being shared via e-mail or through social media sites. Grandparents can see their grandchildren in photos in real time. Also, if they’ve managed apps that enable video sharing, they can view and chat with relatives who live miles away, just as if they were sitting across the table. • Conversations with family: In a world where families are no longer centrally located, communication may be lacking. Despite the prevalence of mobile phones,

The positive to being Next game: 4 p.m. Wednesday confined indoors, at least as in Arizona; 10 a.m. Saturday at far as South is concerned, Leyden is that it does little to hinder the development of a pitching staff that should be one of the team’s biggest strengths.

He finished with an 8-1 record. Zach Burdi turned heads last year and is back as an Iowa recruit. Danny Mayer (Pacific), Nick Alfini (St. Ambrose), Alex Galik and Zach Taylor pitched last spring and are also back. “Runs come and go, but I think our pitching keeps us in games,” Orel said. “Hitting is tough to do, but with good pitching and consistent defense where you don’t give away outs, you’re going to be in almost every game.” The Mustangs also bring back starters at every position in the field, including West Suburban Gold all-conference middle infielders Kevin Raher and Joe Becht. Mayer and Galik man the corner infield spots when not pitching. A slew of outfielders are back as are catchers Javier Martinez and Anthony Vattimo, who will both see time behind the dish. The challenge once the season gets underway will be putting all the pieces in place as the games, including a handful of make-up games, come in bunches. The challenges will keep coming in the Gold, where Hinsdale South and Willowbrook should join the Mustangs in the race for the conference title. “On paper we look great but we’ve got to go out and prove it,” Orel said. “We have to make sure we play well in all facets of the game, and not just pitching. We’ve got to score runs and play defense.”

SIU-bound Kopach leads returning infield

By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE — A baseball coach would do anything for solid infield defense up the middle. Downers Grove North coach Chad Isaacson has it around the horn. “We have experience in the infield and there’s no doubt about that,” Isaacson said. “If you were to say where is our strength, we have guys that can glove the ball in the infield.” Southern Illinois-bound shortstop Connor Kopach hit well over .300 last spring, and to his right is junior third baseman Joe Provenzano, who hit .350. Ray Greco at second and Troy Southard and Jack Goergen at first round out the experienced infield, but the Trojans defensive strength extends past the infield dirt. James Sheldon adds to the strength up the middle in center field and David Henson returns to right. “We have some leadership and experience,” Isaacson said. “There are six guys that have seen a lot of innings in our conference.” Like every other team in the area, North has had to deal with the lingering winter weather, which led to the cancellation of three games as of March 23. Though they haven’t been on a diamond yet, even for practice, the Trojans have been able to sneak outside on turf fields, which has allowed them to work on more than just batting practice and long toss. “We’ve been able to do everything possible except getting ground balls off of an infield,” Isaacson said. “And you can do fungoes to an outfield, but they’re not going to get much until they get real true reads off of a bat. You can hit a thousand fungoes, but for an outfielder your best reads are off a bat.” The weather hasn’t had too much effect on the pitching staff. Southard and Michael O’Malley were both starters in West Suburban Silver games last year, while Lucas Fisher also saw his fair share of innings. All three have been able to build up arm strength with

.360 Connor Kopach’s batting average last spring simulated games in practice, but there are always concerns with pitching, no matter the team or the staff. “It’s a little bit of a puzzle. They have to get their work in but we have to get them set up for conference, so you have to be careful with what you’re doing,” Isaacson said. “We told them we can’t worry about it. We’ll worry about today today and worry about tomorrow another time.” If the weather breaks, the Trojans are slated to open West Suburban Silver play at York Saturday. Defending Class 4A state finalists Lyons Township and Oak Park-River Forest and a Hinsdale Central team with three Division I starting pitchers will provide a challenge for the Trojans. Isaacson is keeping the goals in check. “I’ve never set numbers on any of these guys. Those things kind of fall into place,” he said. “I say the same thing every single year. It’s playing the game the right way and giving ourselves an opportunity to win, and everything else will work itself out.”

score at 24-24 and later tallying the kill that put North ahead 26-25. A South miscue on match point sealed the Trojans’ win. “It feels really good,” North junior Tom Sarver said. “This is the first time I’ve beat South, so it feels good.” Like his head coach, Sarver relished playing South early in the season, mostly because it took a team effort to notch the win. “I think their middles have a bit more experience, so it was good for our middles to face them,” Sarver said. “I also think it was good because we learned to work as a team. We struggled in

the second game but we pulled it out in the third.” Unforced errors were an issue for both teams. Wasik lamented seven net violations in the second game. South coach Kurt Steuer pointed to errors that helped turn the tide in North’s favor in the first and third games, though he liked the fire he saw from his team. “I’m looking for that fight. We worked hard the last two weeks and the boys worked hard in club the last five months to get ready for the season,” Steuer said. “There’s still a long way to go, but to see them fight this hard this early on is a good thing.” The Mustangs didn’t have to wait long to notch their first win of the season as they topped defending state champion Wheaton Warrenville South 25-18, 25-12 March 20. Nick Timrick had seven kills, John Hanek tallied six kills and two aces, and Jordan Pawlicki dished 18 assists in the win. The Trojans moved to 3-0 on the year when they defeated Metea Valley 25-21, 25-21 March 21. Sarver led with nine kills, and Tyler Saieg had 21 assists.

Offense erupts in Trojans’ first win of 2013 By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE — That’s more like it. After being shut out in a 3-0 loss to York in the first game of the season, Downers Grove North’s girls soccer team turned the corner with a 4-1 win over visiting Curie on Saturday. “It was the same issue we had in our first game,” North coach Bob Calder said. “We possessed the ball at least half the time (in the first game) — in this game more than half the time — but we weren’t looking to be aggressive, looking to score. In our last game we didn’t have many opportunities and didn’t score. Today we kind of opened the floodgates, which was nice.” The Trojans (1-1-0) had the better of possession and dictated the pace of the game against Curie, but had little to show for it in terms of offensive third possession and

shots on goal. Once Bridget Keys notched North’s first goal of the season with just over 10 minutes left in the first half, the onslaught started. It took less than 20 minutes of game action for the Trojans to tally their next two goals, the second coming on Lexi Cittadine’s score from Maria Derrig’s perfectly weighted through ball. “You notice that when we scored once, they all kind of wanted to be a part of that,” Calder said. “That, and all our balls were looking to go to the corner or to goal instead of backwards and sideways. The first 20 minutes, all we did was play backwards and sideways, but we finally got aggressive.” Keys scored off a scramble in front of the net late in the game and drew the foul that led to a penalty kick for North’s third goal. “I thought the game started off a little slow, but it got better and we got a good win,” Keys said. “It was just more movement, more commu-

nication and more determination.” The Trojans were set to face Trinity Monday afternoon before a break ahead of an April 2 contest at Hinsdale Central. A win over Curie was just what the young Trojans (who have nine freshman and sophomores on the team) needed as they get set for the bulk of the season. “I think we can build from this and I think we can score from this,” Calder said. “I think they see where they have to play the ball now, and it will help in practice and it will help in games.” “I think our team gained confidence because it’s a win and now we can say we’ve won a game,” Keys said.

Downers Grove South The Mustangs had their March 21 game against Lockport canceled, which means they will go nine days between a 4-0 win over Bartlett March 18 and a 7 p.m. contest against St. Charles North March 27.

8PREP ROUNDUP BADMINTON Downers Grove North On the heels of an 8-7 win over West Suburban Silver-rival Hinsdale Central, the Trojans racked up 34 points to win Saturday’s Hersey Gresens invite. Hersey was second with 28 points. Against Central, Emily Planek, Emily Buhle, Lucy Lu, Kiley Pooler and Melody Suh won singles matches. Buhle and Planek teamed up for a win at No. 1 doubles, Suh and Pooler won at No. 4 doubles, and Michelle Twist and Nikita Gandhi won at No. 2 doubles. Downers Grove South The Mustangs tallied 21 team points and finished fourth at Saturday’s Thornton Fractional South tourney. South finished just behind Oak Forest (22). T.F. South won the title with 42 points.

DOWNERS GROVE — A meeting between Downers Grove North and Downers Grove South in any sport is always a highlight. The highlight came early for the boys volleyball teams when North and South met March 19. It was the second match of the season for the Trojans. It was the Mustangs’ first. While it might have been a bit early in the season to put town bragging rights on the line, coaches and players enjoyed meeting early in the season. “A win is good. When you’re down and making mistakes and you find a way to turn it around, then obviously it’s good,” said North coach Mark Wasik, whose team lost big in Game 2 and trailed 23-21 late in the third. “At this point of the season it’s good (to play a rivalry match) either way because you use it to get better. Whether we won or lost, we would see what we have to work on.” Anthony Puccini came up big for the Trojans late in Game 3, flooring a kill that knotted the

Insurance fraud

— Brandpoint Car Q&a

Buick Encore Q: i recently saw an ad for the Buick encore suV and would like your opinion on it. A: i spent a week in the encore all-wheel drive premium and found the vehicle to be great to drive. the rear seat area is a bit tight, but take into consideration this is a downsized suV. a powerful 1.4-liter turbo-charged four-cylinder via a sixspeed automatic delivers plenty of power and gas mileage: 23 city, 30 highway miles per gallon.

Small, stylish and better than the Beemer

I

f by chance the BMW X1 isn’t your cuppa but you’re still hunting for a small and stylish crossover SUV with all-wheel drive, this just might soak your tea bag: The updated fivepassenger Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. The 190-horsepower model is down 50 ponies from the four-cylinder Beemer, but it costs $6,300 less to start - just $26,200. Jump up to the turbocharged Santa Fe Sport 2.0T and you gain 74 horsepower (a respectable 264 in all, and 269 lb-ft of torque) for $29,450. Now you’re only 36 HP less than the hotter X1, the six-cylinder, but the difference in starting prices has shot up to $9,150. And the more boxes you tick on each option sheet, the greater the price difference gets. We can hear the outrage already: How dare you equate a Hyundai with a BMW? Oh, but we’re not

vanilla-smooth eight-speed automatic transmission while the Santa Fe makes do with a slightly clumsier six-speed. And, thanks some very sophisticated technology, the BMW may travel a mile or two farther SILVIO CALABI on a gallon of gas. However, in 70/30 highway/city drivdone yet. The new Santa Fe ing we averaged 24.4 mpg is arguably as good-looking in a Santa Fe Sport AWD 2.0T. (Hyundai has cut as the X1 on the outside weight by switching to new, and possibly nicer inside. higher-strength steel and In every dimension these this engine is fed fuel by ditwo vehicles fall within a few inches of each other — rect injection, for a bit more efficiency.) and of the Honda CR-V, The Santa Fe’s default Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4, mode is front-wheel-drive etc. — but the Korean is instead of the X1’s RWD, a critical bit roomier than with varying amounts of the German, especially in the back seat and the cargo torque sent to the rear wheels as needed, but it has area. More, however, on Santa Fe roominess to come. Yes, the fourcylinder X1 has a

a classically BMW-style suspension. Depending on slippage, the Santa Fe’s torque also can be automatically adjusted, “vectored,” from side to side. We wouldn’t be surprised if the BMW were more composed at 110 mph. But that’s on the autobahn; here, the Santa Fe Sport meets or exceeds all expectations for stopping and going, as well as for comfort, quiet and convenience. Our impress-the-press sample Santa Fe Sport was equipped with most of the optional toys. The “standard features” column on the spec sheet is long and, as usual, lists items that once were found only on really posh cars.

However, one standard feature is unique, at least in this category: DSSM, or Driver-Selectable Steering Mode. This changes the steering effort and response from Normal to Sport to Comfort. In daily use the differences are almost unnoticeable -- but the steering-wheel heater, part of the $2,900 Technology Package, is very noticeable and, in late winter, welcome.

April Fool’s! A

pril Fool’s Day is April 1, and it’s a day to practice your most clever tricks on your friends and families. But you can fool yourself, too. An optical illusion is an image you see with your eyes that is different from what is really on the paper. It’s a way to trick your mind to see something that doesn’t really exist. Below are some well-known optical illusions. Can you trick

your eyes to see something that isn’t there? — By Anne Raih, GateHouse News Service

Duck or rabbit? When you look at this image, do you see a duck or a rabbit? The duck’s beak points to the left, and the rabbit looks to the right. Can you see each animal in the picture? IMAGES By WIkIMEDIA COMMONS

Penrose stairs

Ehrenstein illusion

Necker cube

It looks like you could walk forever on these stairs, but you keep retracing your steps in the process, creating an endless circle. How is this possible? Could this happen in real life?

It looks like the lines inside the concentric circles are bent, but if you grab a ruler or another straight edge, you will see they are perfectly straight. What is causing you to see the square in this way?

At first, this just looks like a simple transparent cube, but which way is it facing? Is it pointing up to the right, or down to the left? Can you see it both ways?

DRAWING WITH MARK!

ANGELS FROM THE ATTIC

Look at the center circles on both the left and right. Which circle is BIGGER? Which appears smaller? OR... are they both the same size? This illusion was created by Hermann Ebbinghaus, born in Germany in 1850.
