BOLINGBROOK — Ashbury’s at Boughton Ridge will soon celebrate five years of birdies, banquets and bridal showers. From 6 to 9 p.m. April 12, Ashbury’s at Boughton Ridge Golf Course will celebrate its fifth anniversary by hosting a party featuring live music, food and beverages. Additionally, residents can golf on the Boughton Ridge course for $5, then enjoy $5 pitchers and $5 menu items at the restaurant. It wasn’t always a yearround party at the golf course, though. For nearly 30 years, the Bolingbrook Park District owned-and-operated golf course closed its greens and fairways during the frigid, snow-covered winter months. The nine-hole municipal course opened in 1982, averaging about 25,000 to 30,000 annual tee time reservations and establishing itself as a profitable public entity. While the sprawling, 2,205-yard, par 32 generated ample revenue for the park district, services were limited due to inclement weather; without a serviceable bar, club house or dining area, the complex shut down operations from November through March. General Manager Jim Sawyer explained that aside from the nine-hole course, the only available amenity was The 10th Hole Pub, a 2,000-square-foot sandwich shop that “served cold cuts and cold beer.” “The 10th Hole Pub definitely had a cult following,” Sawyer said. “There were 48 seats, the kitchen was the size of a walk-in closet, but you could grab a beer and a sandwich and watch a sports game after your round of golf. It was a big hit among golfers.” Sawyer, a Bolingbrook resident since 1990, said the quaint bar and restaurant

“We also have comedy nights during the winter, live music nearly every week and a craft beer Brew Dash celebration in October.” Anne Marie Kaufman Banquet Services Coordinator

were very successful, but lacked a proper reception area and banquet hall. So in 2008, Boughton Ridge re-branded and expanded its facilities, opening Ashbury’s at Boughton Ridge, a yearround multi-use bar, restaurant, dining area, reception hall and game room. The facility expansion and remodel cost approximately $8 million, according to Sawyer, a small price to incur to host year-round events and dining. Ashbury’s fifth anniversary is a testament to excellent food service, marketing and park district staff, Sawyer said. Banquet Services Coordinator Anne Marie Kaufman said that in the last year the staff has entertained everything from corporate events to weddings to bridal and baby showers. Additionally, Kaufman explained that the events and marketing team meets twice a month for brainstorming sessions and to plan unique events. “We now have murder mystery nights at Ashbury’s,” Kaufman said. “We also have comedy nights during the winter, live music nearly every week and a craft beer Brew Dash celebration in October.” The Ashbury’s crew is currently planning a Bacon Ridge Open on June 29, an all-pork event featuring inspired food and drinks, and highlighted by a pig roast. Last week, Boughton Ridge opened its nine-hole course.

Students participate in research program at Argonne National Laboratory By SARAH SMALL ssmall@shawmedia.com ARGONNE — Two students at Glenbard East High School have found metal content in dandelions they picked on the school’s campus, and now they want to know why. It’s all part of a project Wendi Guraziu and Jourdan Ewoldt are completing through their participation in the Argonne National Laboratory’s Exemplary Student Research Program. This is the second year Ar-

gonne has run the program, and the first that Glenbard East has had a team participating. Guraziu and Ewoldt are being assisted by Karen Beardsley, a biology teacher at the school, along with a staff scientists from Argonne. Beardsley’s children Tom and Kelly are seniors at Wheaton North High School and also work in the group because their school didn’t offer the program. “We’re doing real research and got to go to Argonne and use the equipment,” said

Ewoldt, a senior. “Eventually when we’re done with analyzing the data, we’ll get to present a poster to real scientists.” In May, students will visit Argonne to present a scientific poster on their findings. In the project, students are working in a similar structure to what a scientist does when he or she wants to use the equipment at Argonne. In the fall, the group prepared a proposal and had to get their project approved by Argonne’s oversight committee. During the review, they

were with scientists from France and China. On Feb. 20, Guraziu, Ewoldt and the Beardsleys took a trip Argonne to spend the day running tests using the lab’s synchrotron to carry out their project. For this project, students used the laser beam technology of the synchrotron to identify the metal content in 26 dandelion samples from around the school’s campus. The project they developed had a focus on the effect humans have on the environment. Right now they’re analyzing their data and determining what metals are present in the plant samples from different locations around Glenbard East, and later they’ll analyze the data, look for patterns and develop hypotheses on why certain metals are in certain places, said Guraziu, a junior. Guraziu’s favorite part about the project? “Definitely being able to

go there and to experience the world-class technology that scientists are using,” she said. Guraziu and Ewoldt said they were eager to participate in the project because it was a chance to work with the same technology and environment as scientists. Both hope to pursue careers in science. “[Argonne] really wants to encourage young people in the science field,” Karen Beardsley said. “They’re really, really available and enthusiastic at helping us.” Beardsley said she learned about the program through an email from the DuPage Regional Office of Education and decided to get involved because of the opportunity it would bring for students. “I go between feeling kind of elated that this is such a great opportunity to overwhelmed,” she said. “I feel my limit [of experience], but it’s such a great opportunity that I’m OK with it.”

CH man charged with child porn possession By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com CLARENDON HILLS — A 25-year-old Clarendon Hills man has been charged with 12 counts of possession of child pornography and dissemination of child pornography by the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office. Daniel R. Hiller, of the 300 block of Park Avenue, was taken into custody March 29 and posted bail Saturday, Claren-

don Hills Police Chief Ted Jenkins said. Investigators from the Wheaton Police Department discovered pornographic material on Hiller’s computer as part of their ongoing Internet crime efforts, according to a news release. That material was vetted by the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office and a search warrant was issued. The search warrant was served March 22 by members of the Clarendon Hills and Wheaton police departments. Electronic devices were seized and are being forensically examined. Jenkins said the Wheaton Police Department has a unit devoted to Internet criminal investigations. “There are ways they can look into other people’s computers, like file-sharing software and things like that, so they continually look for child pornography,” Jenkins said. “When they find it they try to identify who has this on their computer, who was involved in it and the case goes from there.”

Irritable Bowel, Celiac, Crohn’s or Colitis? Are you afraid to leave your house due to an unpredictable bowel? Have you tried diferent treatments but continue to sufer? Do you know the essentials for a healthy digestive system? Have you given up and decided to just live with it? he digestive system assimilates food (carbs, fats and proteins) to produce energy. It breaks down food into nutrient forms that your body can absorb. It uses enzymes, good bacteria and hydrochloric acid to break down food to a usable form. Your gut is a barrier, a tube that starts in your mouth, continues as your esophagus, small intestine, large intestine and rectum. 80% of your immune system is in your gut. When you break down the barrier (gut lining), toxins can “leak” into the blood stream leading to an immune response, inlammation and food allergies. Hippocrates, the father of medicine said… “look to the gut, there will you ind the origin of almost all human illness.”

Hi, my name is Dr. Jefrey 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 nervous system, immune system, endocrine system (hormones), diet essentials (Neuro-‐Metabolic Care), manage the underlying cause and use natural therapies to manage digestive disorders. here are many essentials required for proper digestion. Let’s talk about a few… Zinc is necessary to make hydrochloric acid (HCL). HCL is needed to break down food (protein) in the stomach and for production of methyl groups. Methyl groups turn on tumor suppressor genes and turn of oncogenes leading to potential cancer growth. If HCL is deicient, this results in poor digestion and a many imbalances due to a deiciency of methyl groups. HCL deiciency also leads to growth of pathological bacteria like H. Pylori, which can cause gastritis, stomach ulcers and possibly stomach cancer. Probiotics (good bacteria) are normally found in the gut. Optimal levels are needed for a proper functioning digestive system. hese probiotics are also part of your immune

system. hey play an important role in the protective barrier in your gut. Your gut makes up 80% of your immune system due to this barrier system. Antibiotics kill pathologic bacteria and infections but they also kill good bacteria and cause gut dysbiosis (imbalance). his dysbiosis can lead to pathologic bacterial, yeast and parasitic infections as well as food allergies. Digestive system inlammation is associated with IBS, Crohn’s, Celiac and Ulcerative Colitis. It is due to stress, poor diet, toxins and food allergies. Digestive inlammation leads to production of cytokines (inlammatory cells). hese cytokines travel in the blood to the brain and inlame the brain cells. he brain (mesencephalon) in turn controls the digestive system. his leads to a vicious cycle resulting in an inlammatory cascade which exponentially worsens over time. Successfully managing digestive conditions involves balancing the nervous system, digestive system and immune system as well as improving the diet, decreasing gut inlammation and detoxifying the body. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a digestive disorder that includes abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating and alternating constipation and diarrhea. he cause is unknown but theories include toxic overload, intestinal infections, inlammation from stress and poor diet generalized condition of the digestive system poor signaling from the brain to the digestive system for proper function.

Medications to treat digestive disorders can weaken your immune system and lead to infections and immune degenerative conditions including cancer. hese medications may give you symptom relief but have side efects and DO NOT ADDRESS the UNDERLYING CAUSE of your condition.

Testimonial As someone who lives with chronic nausea, poor digestion and anxiety, I assumed I was out of options when countless doctors told me that there was nothing else they could do for me. hey told me it was likely all in my head. hen I visited Dr. Forzley and he told me from the initial consultation that he was very conident he could help me. I was so excited that I cried. No other doctor has ever been so much on my side. Now, 8 weeks into treatment, I am nausea free, anxiety free and my digestion is normal. I have started living a life I never thought I could live. My body is a machine, slowed and dirtied by processed foods and environmental toxins. But with the help of Dr. Forzley, my body is on the way back to an optimal state for long term health and happiness. Veronica M.

Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity is a digestive condition that involves gluten sensitivity like Celiac Disease but is not an autoimmune disorder. It involves digestive symptoms (pain, bloating…), fatigue, joint pains as well as neurologic symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, poor memory, brain fog and diiculty concentrating. Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are autoimmune diseases. An autoimmune disorder is when your immune system attacks your body instead of protecting it. here is NO CURE for autoimmune disorders. But you can calm down the immune response NATURALLY and decrease the efects of the tissue destruction. If you have an autoimmune disease like Celiac, Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis and you do not balance and calm down the autoimmune destruction, your immune system can attack other tissues and cause multiple autoimmune disorders. It is common for people with an autoimmune disorder to have multiple autoimmune diseases for this reason. Medications are not always the long term answer.

Holistic therapy can manage digestive conditions by: 1) inding and balancing the underlying cause and… 2) using natural therapies that work with your body.

Afternoon traffic moves through the intersection of McCarthy and Walker roads in Lemont. The state will soon begin a $1.7 million upgrade of the intersection.

State to kick in nearly $2 million for McCarthy/ Walker project By JERRY MOORE jmoore@shawmedia.com LEMONT — A capital improvement project being funded largely by the state will finally bring traffic signals to a heavily used intersection. As part of its Illinois Jobs Now! capital construction program, the Illinois Department of Transportation will contribute about $1.7 million to upgrade the intersection of McCarthy and Walker roads. The work will involve modernizing traffic lanes and signals at the intersection located about a half mile west of Archer Avenue, according to a news release from the state. The project is scheduled to begin April 15 and should be complete by the end of October, the release said. “The village of Lemont began Phase 1 of this project by conducting the necessary en-

gineering,” said Lemont Village Administrator Benjamin Wehmeier. “One improvement is that traffic signals will be added here. This is now an unsignalized section, and it’s used very heavily.” Wehmeier said Lemont’s portion of the total cost for this project will be about $60,000. The village began the engineering on this intersection about five years ago, he said. “The McCarthy-Walker Road project will undoubtedly enhance the traffic flow and safety of an important intersection in Lemont,” state Sen. Christine Radogno, R-41st District, of Lemont, said in the news release issued by the state. “It is a good example of state leaders working together to better our community and create well-paying jobs throughout Illinois.”

DARIEN — To help adults with little or no English-speaking skills, the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph now is offering a free literacy program at Lace Elementary School in Darien. The program is sponsored by the Sisters through the organization School and Tutors on Wheels, which formed with volunteers to teach English. “I think we have a responsibility to not only welcome immigrants, but to help them adjust in our society,” said June Stella, who started volunteering and teaching students with the group in September. The volunteers in Darien range in age from 17 to 70 and include backgrounds from retired teachers to construction workers. It’s this unique setup that is a contributing factor to the program’s success. “We concentrate on what’s important to [the students],” said Theresa Denton, executive director of School and Tutors on Wheels. “If they want to be able to talk to their child’s teacher better, then we focus on that. We don’t just say, ‘OK, we’re going to do grammar today.’ ” What started in 1993 as a program with 20 volunteers and 25 students has blossomed into 425 volunteers tutoring about 900 students. Denton was blown away this year by the number of volunteers in the Darien area who came out to help. “The response for tutors was remarkable,” Denton said. “In January, we ended up training in one session more tutors than

we ever had in a single session before. We had 42 people who we trained.” Statistically, English is one of the hardest languages to learn, yet one of the most widely spoken languages around the world. Despite the level of difficulty, Stella said her students’ progression has been phenomenal, but it wasn’t always easy. “You see little eye contact because they’re ashamed they can’t speak [English],” she said. “It reminds me of my dad who came from Italy who could not speak, and he learned.” Dena Provenzano of Darien has tutored four students since she started volunteering in January. One of the reasons she signed up was to help bridge language gaps in the community. “I like knowing that this is also helping families communicate because I can’t imagine what it must be like when they’re trying to help their children in school and not being able to understand that,” Provenzano said. To some, it may seem surprising this service is needed in DuPage County, but not for Provenzano. “Being involved with the district for so long, I’ve seen just how many languages are spoken and just how many countries are being represented,” she said. “To me, I was pretty excited about the program.” All the volunteers said the most rewarding part was helping their students feel more confident to speak English. Some said it was more rewarding for them than the students after they learn. “It’s remarkably reward-

Irene Murray of Darien participates in the 2011 Chicago Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Murray will walk for a seventh time in June.

Avon walker looks to participate for seventh time By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com DARIEN — Later this spring, Irene Murray will walk a little more than 275 miles, say 275 prayers and sing, laugh and dance her way along a two-day journey for a good cause. The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Chicago is a twoday, 39.3-mile walk going from Soldier Field to Horner Park and back again. It’s a chance to not only raise funds to help eliminate breast cancer, but to bring thousands together who have been touched by the disease. Murray’s story starts when she was a teenager. She was one of seven kids when

While the upgrades will improve this section of Lemont’s roadways, the pending work has the potential of disrupting the businesses located near the intersection, Wehmeier said.

Prom, graduation celebrations must remain safe, festive As Lemont High School students enter the homestretch of the 2012-13 school year, learning remains our top priority. However, upcoming nonacademic milestone events — including prom and graduation — will supply students with lifelong memories. Prom activities and graduation parties generate a lot of fun, COMMUNITY but unfortunately, some stuVOICE dents make poor choices during these festivities by consuming Mary Ticknor alcoholic beverages or partaking in drug use. The combination of driving and drinking or drug use is a frightening thought for all of us, especially when it involves young people. Although this concern is with us throughout the year, it is heightened during April and May. Lemont High School takes a number of steps to encourage our students to enjoy themselves safely and responsibly. Thanks in part to a grant from the Lemont High School Educational Foundation, all Lemont High School students will take part in our annual Pre-Prom Assembly. This event features a guest speaker whose message is a strong reminder to students about the need to consider both the consequences of their actions and the benefits of making healthy choices. After our newest graduates cross the stage on May 24, Project Graduation will provide them with an all-night outing that is both safe and fun. Held on campus, Project Graduation is organized by parents, faculty and members of the community, and is intended not only to provide a good time, but also to reduce the chance of any student being involved in an alcohol- or drug-related accident. Parents, community members and local businesses are encouraged to consider donating food, drawing prizes, money or time to help make Project Graduation a night to remember. Adults who furnish alcohol to minors face criminal and civil liability. As a form of preventive public service, Lemont High School and the Lemont Police Department have partnered to provide parents and community members an avenue to report suspected underage consumption if they become aware of a party at which alcohol will be served. Please contact Detective Dan Dykshorn at 630-243-3229 to report such activities or to ask related questions. The ending of the school year, and the sense of accomplishment it provides, puts everyone in a festive mood. We appreciate the support from our parents and the Lemont community as they help us provide our students with safe, responsible year-end celebrations.

Murray didn’t want to fear breast cancer. That’s when she found out about the Avon Walk. This year is Murray’s seventh walk. For her first Avon Walk, just one of her sisters tagged along, but now she’s recruited her daughters and nieces. “We now have 32 grandkids in our family that never got to meet their grandma,” Murray said. “All of us have a personal connection to trying to find a cure to breast cancer because 32 kids had to grow up without a grandma.” The fun atmosphere of the walk also resonates with the 4,000-plus walkers who take part in singing, dancing and sharing stories each year, Murray said. It’s upbeat and encouraging. To go along with that theme, Murray’s family has developed a “no complaining pact” for the walk because there are oth-

Rollow remembered as distinguished sports journalist By AMBER KROSEL akrosel@shawmedia.com ELMHURST — Herbert Rollow, better known by his sportswriter byline Cooper Rollow, was remembered by friends and family this week as a “gentleman in every sense of the word,” his daughter said. Rollow, who was a distinguished sports editor and reporter employed by the Chicago Tribune for 35 years, died March 29 at the age of 87. “He was a great guy. He was a man’s man,” said Sally Hersh of Portland, Ore. “He just loved life. He lived life as fully as possible up until the

day he died. I think that’s one of his biggest legacies to his kids and his grandchildren.” A longtime Elmhurst resident, he lived with his daughter, Carol Harms, until his death. “Everybody knew him,” Hersh said. “He was very much a part of Elmhurst’s history. My parents lived there for decades.” Hersh also recalled Rollow’s big sense of humor — and how he “didn’t like people to tell him what to do.” Her father covered the Chicago Bears, the Green Bay Packers and the first 32 Super Bowls for the Tribune. His fa-

vorite beat was pro football, but he also covered a wide range of sports and the infamous 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, where 11 members of Israel’s Olympic team were killed by members of the Palestinian group Black September. “He was very intelligent and outgoing,” Hersh said. “He was a quintessential reporter. He was first and foremost a journalist. Sports was his area of expertise.” Rollow also loved music and had perfect pitch. He and his late wife, Marjorie, enjoyed attending Elmhurst’s Church of our Saviour. The family is planning a memorial for May 19.

Longtime hobby creates a patchwork of friends By BRIAN HUDSON bhudson@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE — It was the early ’80s, and Patt Russo just wanted a reason to get out of the house. The mother of three young children at the time, she needed a night of activity. So she went to her park district hoping to take the first class that looked fun — floral arrangement. “When I got there, they said, ‘That class is full,’” recalled Russo, now 78 and a Downers Grove resident. “I said, ‘I’ve got to take a class. What else do you have?’” Quilting was the only open class. Now, 30 years and hundreds of quilts later, Russo has no plans of slowing down. She devotes three to four hours a day to the activity, usually juggling several at a time. “I will quilt until I can’t see or move,” she said. Her Downers Grove home is adorned in quilts, but it’s only a portion of the ones she’s made. Many more have gone out into the world either as gifts or heirlooms. “My daughters have more of my quilts than I do,” Russo said. She can’t peg a number to it, but she says she has probably completed several hundred quilts over the years.

Recently, she completed one of her more ambitious undertakings — a quilt featuring more than 669 pieces adorned with hearts sent from friends, acquaintances and friends of friends from around the world. The word went out that she was making a heart-themed quilt, and the donations came pouring in — from individuals in 22 states and five countries, Russo said. She was touched by the outpouring, but not all that surprised. “Quilters help each other whether they know each other or not,” she said. That community is at the heart of quilting, Russo said. Thirty years on, she remains an active member of her quilting group, the Elmhurst Piecemakers. There are usually about 40 members at the meetings, nearly a dozen of them founding members, though that number has dwindled. “Over the years, a few of our members have passed on to the quilting group in the sky,” said Mary Conley of Elmhurst, another one of the Piecemakers’ founding members. Last month was National Quilting Month, and it gave Russo and Conley a chance to reflect on how much had

Russo has been quilting for 33 years. changed in the hobby since they started out. When Russo began, she recalls it being more of a niche hobby. There were only a few stores within the western suburbs that offered quilting supplies. “And we were lucky to have them,” Russo said. Now, many towns have multiple stores to choose

from. Downers Grove’s own, The Quilting Basket, is downtown at 1012 Curtiss St. But the appeal has never changed, Conley said. It’s about exercising creativity, but it also creates something useful. She has nine grandchildren younger than 10, and each is getting a quilt for Christmas. “I think it’s a practical

thing,” she said. “It’s probably the prices rather than the acquisition of a finished process.” And it’s as much about the hobby as the socializing. “By and large, it’s a great group of women — and there’s a shared camaraderie of, well, our mutual interest — but our affection for each other,” Conley said.

Restaurant reviews

Melina’s isn’t your ordinary Italian restaurant There are a lot of Italian restaurants in the Chicago area — across the country, really — and it’s easy to assume a sort of chain-restaurant sameness at all of them. Like most people, we enjoy Italian cuisine, but we rarely have an experience that really differentiates a spot from all the others. Melina’s Trattoria on York Road in Elmhurst does stand out, though. Also a Nancy’s Pizzeria location, Melina’s really stands out when you explore its other dinner entrees. It doesn’t just offer a standard spaghetti; there’s the Spaghetti Tetrazzini (with chicken and mushrooms in a cream sauce) and the Spaghetti Antonio (with chicken breast and sun-dried tomatoes). For meatier entrees, there are sections with veal dishes (such as Veal Saltimboca, with prosciutto and fresh mozzarella), chicken (the Pollo alla Vesuvio sounded tempting), fish, steak and pork. They’ve also got a “create

your own pasta” section on the menu with a choice of 10 kinds of pasta and 13 types of sauces. Combine it with a side of meatballs or sausage, and you can have just about any kind of pasta dish you can think of. The stuffed artichoke appetizer on the menu looked appetizing to me, but my companion, who almost never passes a chance to order bruschetta, insisted we go that route.

Village Theatre Guild takes on explosive drama with ‘A Hatful of Rain’ By ALLISON HORNE msleditorial@shawmedia.com For most theaters, “A Hatful of Rain” might be a little bit of a stretch in terms of content, but taking risks and bringing unique performances to the stage is something Village Theatre Guild of Glen Ellyn does on a regular basis. It’s no different for the newest production, directed by VTG newcomer Jeni Dees of South Elgin. “I’ve always wanted to direct here, because they put the art and creativity first,” Dees says. “It’s a very small theater, so it’s not like they’re focused on picking the almighty dollar and picking the shows that will sell well. They trust the directors to pick (the) pieces.” “A Hatful of Rain” is set in 1955, and focuses on Johnny Pope, a Korean War veteran who’s returned home. Injured during the war, he was put on morphine, a habit he can’t kick. His hidden addiction

— coupled with relationship problems with his wife and money issues with his brother — evolves into a crazy whirlwind of a life that draws disapproval from his father. “It’s kind of a soap opera with so many different story levels,” Dees says. “It’s clearly a drama. The thing is that there is so much about the character relationships, which is what drew me to the show in the first place.” Woodridge actor Tom Viskocil plays John Pope Sr., the father who further complicates the family dynamic. His problems include a son addicted to drugs and another son who promises him money and backs out. It’s not exactly something everyone has to deal with throughout their lifetime, so Viskocil has found himself drawing some traits from people he knows in real life. “I’ve never actually had any family or relatives involved in drugs or addiction at all, but the script ap-

pealed to me,” Viskocil says. “I got the guy. I could hear him speaking. I’ve known so many people like him — my father was even somewhat like him.” Many of the story’s themes still resonate. “You can take this and plug it into modern day,” Dees says. “It’s something you can relate to today — even though it is set in 1955.” The script by Michael Gazzo was ground-breaking at the time. It addressed post-traumatic stress disorder before it even had a name, as well as drug addiction and family issues affecting returning veterans. “I had teachers that were in Vietnam and uncles that were in World War II,” Dees says. “They don’t talk about it. It was a different time. Even nowadays, it’s something that doesn’t get talked about. I’m hoping we can shed a little bit of light on these situations, along with the relationships that go along with them.”

“A Hatful of Rain” sets up a tense triangle between Celia (Jennifer Bartolo), Johnny (Garrett Ard) and Polo (Edward Perry, in the background). Submitted photo

Senior pitcher dominates in Lemont’s five-inning rout over TF South By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com LEMONT — With the month of March providing little besides poor weather and cancellations, Cody Caballero provided the Lemont baseball team an early April highlight Tuesday. Opening up South Suburban Blue conference play on the hill against TF South, the senior pitcher twirled a no-hitter as the Indians notched a 10-0 win in five innings. Caballero struck out five while throwing only 58 pitchers. “He was throwing a lot of strikes,” said Lemont coach Brian Storako. “When you are throwing that many strikes, it makes it easier to pitch and do what you want to do out there.” Offensively, Lemont knocked out 14 hits and put the game away with four runs in the fourth inning and three in the fifth. Alex Broskovetz went 3-for-3 with two runs scored, Mike Wisz totaled two triples and four RBIs and Mike Papierski and Jake Latz each had multiple hits. The Indians were coming off a 10-7 loss to Barrington on Saturday. They trailed 9-0 before making things interesting by scoring seven runs in the sixth inning. “We dug ourselves a hole,” the coach said, “and we came up a little too short. It was a little

too late, we ran out of innings.” Lemont had opened the 2013 campaign with a win over Plainfield East on March 27. “This group never quits,” Storako said. “They have a go-getter mentality and we are starting to get the big hit when we need it. The defense is coming around, we’ve struggled a little bit but it is nothing that we don’t have confidence in that we will turn around.” A non-conference doubleheader with Wheaton North awaits on Saturday before Lemont opens a two-game series with Bremen on Monday, capping a stretch of seven games in seven days. “Bremen is usually pretty solid,” Storako said. “But as long as we play like we did (on Tuesday) and field and hit, we will be OK. “Considering the fact we practiced so much in the beginning, it is nice to finally have games. It is very tough to work on things you see in the games but that is the way the conference is drawn up. We will do what we have to do.”

Hot bats swing Lemont softball to 5-1 start By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com LEMONT — Powered by an impressive offense, the Lemont softball team is off to a 5-1 start after holding on to defeat TF South 5-4 on Tuesday. Carly Jaworski contributed with a double and a triple and also notched the save as the Indians improved to 4-1 in the South Suburban Blue conference. Lemont led 5-1 heading into the seventh before yielding three runs. Lauren Young earned the win after working six1/3 innings. Lauren May added a triple and two runs scored, and Maddy Vermejan knocked out a homer. A day earlier, Lemont beat league-rival Oak Lawn 13-2 in five innings behind a 13-hit attack. Rylie Jay went 3-for-4 with four RBIs, Rachel Hall

Indians start 2-0 in league action SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA LEMONT — The Lemont’s girls soccer team improved to 2-0 in the South Suburban Blue conference after notching a 1-0 victory over Tinley Park Tuesday. Aleksander Mihailovic scored the game’s lone goal while Kelly Fritz made five saves to record the shutout. The Indians had previously knocked off league-rival Oak Forest 4-0 on March 28. Kim Jerantowski scored a pair of goals while adding an assist and Nicole McKevitt and Mihailovic also found the back of the net.

Next game Who: Lemont vs. Hinsdale South When: 11 a.m. Saturday (DH) Where: Lemont Sports Complex, 131st Street and Bell Road

was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate and Jaworski and Vermejan each had two hits. “I’m really happy with them,” said Lemont coach Chris Traina. “Even when we were down in a couple of games, they never gave up. They kept hitting and they came back and we want to keep it going.” On Saturday, Lemont picked up a pair of wins in a split doubleheader, beating Richards 4-3 and Oswego 21-10. Against Richards, Jaworski tossed a complete game

while striking out seven. Jay and Brianna D’Amato both went 2-for-3 at the plate with two RBIs. Lemont totaled 20 hits in its six-inning victory over Oswego with Jay going 3-for-3 with four runs scored and four RBIs. Hall went 4-for-4, Vermejan had three hits and May contributed two doubles and four RBIs. “We’ve done a great job of putting the ball in play,” the coach said. After traveling to take on TF North Thursday, the Indians return home Saturday for a non-conference doubleheader against Hinsdale South. A conference matchup with Hillcrest follows on Tuesday. “It’s nice to finally get out there and play,” Traina said. “We’ve got to keep hitting the ball and clean up on our errors.”

TRACK & FIELD PREVIEW | 2013 By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com

Lemont boys Coach: Dennis Kennedy Top returners: Justin Stanwyck, sr. (pole vault, mid. distance) Scott Matulik, sr. (distance) Luke Heatherington, sr. (distance) Paul Rachwalski, sr. (pole vault) Eric Whatley, so. (sprints, jumps) Sebastian Bialas, so. (jumps) Rory Cunningham, fr. (jumps) What to watch: A balanced team with contributors from all grade levels, Lemont has the pieces in place for a successful spring. Distance events could be a strength with the likes of Scott Matulik, Scott Franklin, Luke Heatherington and

Andrew Kramer while the field events should yield contributions from a variety of athletes. Justin Stanwyck leads the way in the pole vault (and the 800) with Paul Rachwalski also strong in that event. Sebastian Bialas could score points in both the long jump and triple with Ed Kostrubala and Nate Palermo handling the throws. Freshman Rory Cunningham is a name to keep an eye on after he cleared 6 feet, 4 inches in the high jump at the Lemont indoor invite. One of the smallest schools in Class 3A, the Indians will compete in the challenging Downers Grove North sectional.

Lemont girls Coach: Tim Plotke

Top returners: Lynn Stanwyck, sr. (pole vault, sprints) Grace Kunkel, so. (sprints) Emma O’Leary, so. (high jump, sprints) Kiara Harris, so. (sprints) Monique Devitt, jr. (shot put, discus) What to watch: A young Lemont team should no doubt see plenty of improvement over the next two months. “I am really looking forward to seeing how the girls develop over the course of the season,” said coach Tim Plotke. “They have a tremendous work ethic and are starting to see their hard work pay off.” Senior Lynn Stanwyck tops a list of returners that also includes junior Monique Devitt and a crop of sophomores in a Grace Kunkel, Emma O’Leary, Kiara Harris

and Maddy Stapleton. Fellow sophomores Jorie Dybcio and Victoria Salazar and freshmen Claire Gagen and Taylor Campos are distance runners who could immediately contribute. “Our mantra is give 100 percent every day and good things will happen,” the coach said. A goal is to finish in the top half of the South Suburban Blue conference before embarking on the state series. “Hopefully come conference time in May, we will be in the hunt for a top-three finish,” Plotke said. “We are pretty young but motivated. We are one of the smallest 3A schools in the state and will compete at the Lockport sectional. However, there are a couple of girls who could be in the mix for qualifying for the state meet.”

POETRY In honor of National Poetry Month, here are four ways to get started writing poems: This is just a guide to help make sure that you’re happy wih the size and shape of the object on the page.

Write a haiku A haiku is a traditional Japanese form of poetry that consists of three lines and a very strict number of sounds.

Use the guide to have fun drawing out the leaves. Bend the trunk of the tree to give it a nice, flowing appearance. Be sure to study a real tree. See if you can see the “hidden” basic shapes inside the form of the tree.

1. Found poem

2. Favorite words

Look through this newspaper, and pick a sentence or two that you like. First, write down those sentences on a new piece of paper as they are written. Then, write them again in poem form, putting only a few words on each line.

Write down 15 different words on a piece of paper. Cut out each word, mix them up in a hat, then pick them out one at a time. Write them down in poem form in the order you pull them out.

The first line has five sounds. The second line has seven sounds. The third line has five sounds. HERE’S AN EXAMPLE: A little frog comes to see me at the river he croaks and floats on

4. Use a form

Sit down every day and write in your journal for at least 10 minutes. Write about everything that comes into your head. At the end of the 10 minutes, pick out your favorite phrases and write them into poem form.

From sonnets to cinquains, poets use forms to help them shape their thoughts into a poem. Using a traditional form can help you get used to the natural rhythm and sound of poetry.

Keep practicing and having fun!

3. Keep a journal

On a separate piece of paper, write a haiku about an object, a place or a feeling. On the top line, write the title of the poem. It should be the name of the object, place or feeling you are writing about. On the first line, write five sounds. On the second line, write seven sounds. On the third, write five sounds again.
