to go to make the program bigger, better, more interesting,” she said. She has no favorite class, but she enjoys teaching design classes and mixed-media ones. “I like the older levels just because I see that spark in some of the students, and it’s fun to watch them grow,” she said. “I see it in the freshmen, too.” Even after 20 years, she

has plans for expansion. She dreams of one day offering a jewelry class or a painting-only class. She’d like to continue developing the Fine Arts Department, offering new resources for her students and offering a place where they can excel. “Having a place to be accepted and shine is important, especially in high school,” she said.

art class the school offered. She was the only art teacher. Today, enough classes are offered that a student interested in art can take an art class each semester of high school. The school has a graduation requirement that ensures students take at least two semesters of a fine arts class, and it’s this restriction that brings many of the students into her class. Drabik said she likes to see the diversity of students who come through her classes. It’s a mix of artistic, athletic and academic students with varying degrees of confidence in an art studio, but they all produce great work, she said. “It’s fulfilling when you know you’re helping someone,” she said. “It’s also fun when you see someone who thinks they can’t do something do something great.” Art class often becomes a haven for students who struggle to excel in other aspects of school, too. She said she enjoys being able to give that opportunity to so many of the students at Montini, and sees the value that a fine arts education offers in oth-

LOMBARD — Wanda Drabik taught her first art classes at Montini Catholic High School in the old convent that formerly housed the nuns who lived on the school’s campus. Fast-forward 20 years, and Drabik’s classroom is in the school’s main building. It’s a large and bright studio and is home to many of the art classes that Drabik has helped develop. The room is filled with art supplies and masterpieces-in-progress, and of visitors in her classroom, she kindly requests, “Please pretend it’s clean.” This year, the 59-year-old art teacher and chairwoman of Montini’s Fine Arts Department is celebrating her 20th anniversary of teaching at the school and reflecting on the curriculum she’s developed during her tenure. “When I got here, there wasn’t an art program, so I had to bring it upon myself,” she said. Art was something she always did growing up. Drabik has memories of attending classes at the Art Institute of Chicago with her mother as a little girl. She enrolled at Northern Illinois University planning to study interior design, but later switched to graphic arts, and after a few years of working as a freelance graphic artist in Chicago, she went back to school and became certified to teach. She came to Montini in 1993, after working at two Catholic elementary schools in surrounding suburbs, and was responsible for teaching every

Bow Wow Playground provides fun, social environment for local pups By SARAH SMALL ssmall@shawmedia.com VILLA PARK — At work, Joanne Marcotte is the self-described alpha. It’s a crucial role if she’s going to keep the dozens of dogs she cares for in line. Marcotte, who grew up in Elmhurst and now lives in Lombard, opened her business, Villa Park’s Bow Wow Playground, more than four years ago after spending three decades in retail. She’d had enough of working in a corporate environment and was looking for the opportunity to run her own business when a friend-of-afriend brought up the topic of doggy daycare. “I’d never heard of it before,” she said. “It was a whole new idea.” She ran with it, and now provides boarding and daycare services to dogs. Training and grooming services also are available at the location, 400 W. St. Charles Road, but are done by another business. The volume of dogs at Bow Wow Playground vary depending on the day, Marcotte said. There’s the set list of dogs she knows will be coming on a specific day, and then

there are usually between five to 10 additional a week as space allows. Marcotte is helped by a team of employees, scheduling workers and dogs so that there are never more than seven dogs to one person. “My first priority is for the dogs and my employees to be safe, and then for them to have fun and a good time,” she said. Last week was Spring Break for many of the local schools, and the Bow Wow Playground was packed with wagging tails and wet noses enjoying their own vacations while the humans were away. Since she’s started the business, Marcotte said she’s seen a significant rise in the popularity of doggy daycare. Dog owners who are unwilling to leave their pets home alone for an extended period of time will bring them to a place like the Bow Wow Playground to socialize with other dogs and be cared for during the day. “People love their dogs,” she said. “For many, they’re their children. A lot of it is socializing.” The most important thing a dog owner can do is socialize the pup when he or she is young, Marcotte said. This

makes for a happier dog that interacts easily with other dogs and a happier owner who doesn’t have to worry about a dog responding negatively to new people or animals. Her biggest rule with accepting dogs is that they’re up-to-date on shots. Other than that, she’s flexible. Puppies, elders, big dogs, small dogs and a variety of breeds are represented at Bow Wow Playground. Marcotte also will take on dogs with special needs. “It doesn’t really deter us,” she said. One of the things she enjoys most in her job is seeing how the dogs interact with each other. The dogs who come to Bow Wow Playground know each other, and they’ll look for each other. Two of the dogs are from the same litter but live with different owners. When they’re together at Bow Wow Playground, they reconnect immediately, she said. The dogs also have their favorite human workers. “It’s the unconditional love,” Marcotte said of a dog’s companionship. “You can’t beat it. They’re always happy to see you, even if you walk out of the room and come back five seconds later.”

ELMHURST — Edward Hospital & Health Services and Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare announced Wednesday that the two healthcare providers have signed a definitive agreement, a major step toward a merger to become one of the larger integrated health systems in the state. Signing of the agreement keeps the merger on track to be completed this summer, officials said. The definitive agreement is a contract that includes the terms and conditions of the new system. The agreement commits Edward and Elmhurst Memorial to becoming an integrated health system pending review of certain aspects of the merger by regulators during the next few months. The merger has already cleared a standard federal antitrust review by the Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice. The Illinois Health Facilities and Services

Review Board will review the merger in the coming months, according to a news release. The merger creates a three-hospital health system — Edward, Elmhurst Memorial and Linden Oaks at Edward — with revenues of more than $1 billion and more than 50 locations across a service area of 1.7 million residents. The system would employ nearly 7,700 and have more than 1,680 physicians on staff. According to the release, Edward and Elmhurst Memorial leaders have started working on transition plans for the new health system that, upon completion of the merger, will: • Improve coordination of care and quality in the region as Edward and Elmhurst Memorial medical staff share best practices and clinical protocols. • Build upon relationships with affiliated and independent physicians. Edward Medical Group and Elmhurst Memorial’s affiliated practices, including Elmhurst Clinic, LLC, will remain of key strategic importance, as will hundreds of in-

Longtime hobby creates a patchwork of friends By BRIAN HUDSON msleditorial@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.

“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.” Mary Conley Elmhurst resident

“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 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 product.” 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.

Since 1958, the American Library Association has sponsored a week in April that highlights libraries and the many services libraries offer. This year, National Library Week will be April 14 to 20, and the theme is “Communities Matter @ your library.” I especially like this year’s “communities matter” theme because it communicates how important the community is for us at the COMMUNITY library. VOICE We believe our collections, Sandra D. Hill programs and services should reflect the needs and wishes of our residents. Today’s libraries are more than repositories of books and other resources. We offer e-books and automation-related classes, materials for English-language learners and programs for job-seekers, etc. In a very diverse and complex society, the challenge for today’s librarian begins with listening to the needs of the community we serve and to respond to those needs. We are a stronger organization because of our community volunteers. Our Friends of the Villa Park Library (VPL) contribute their time and fundraising talents providing a Murder Mystery Play each year, running concessions and an auction at our annual library mini-golf event, delivering books to the Metra station for “Rack at the Track” and leading Sunday movie discussions, as well as sponsoring our holiday book adoption program (aka Giving Tree). Over the years, our Friends of VPL have raised more than $20,000 for programs, materials, reading club prizes and furniture. Working with our local businesses and other entities, such as our schools, our historical society, parks and recreation department and others, makes us more relevant to our community as well. Our combined efforts allow us to provide programs and services that we might not have been able to provide otherwise. We hope the end result is to contribute in making Villa Park an interesting and vibrant community in which to live. During the next eight months, the Library Board and staff will be starting the development of a new three-year strategic plan. We will survey our residents and host community focus groups. We hope many of you will take the time to provide us with your thoughts. Please be sure to contact me by calling 630-834-1164, Ext. 111, or emailing shill@vppl.info if you want to become involved in the process. Community involvement is a key component in the success of any future plan.

Herbert Rollow enjoys the Chicago lakefront in 2009 with his family. The Elmhurst resident, a distinguished sports journalist who worked for the Chicago Tribune for 35 years, died at the age of 87 on March 29.

ED • Friday, April 5, 2013 • mysuburbanlife.com • Press Publications

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 favorite 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.

Elmhurst College opens Spring Student Exhibition SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA ELMHURST — The Elmhurst College Department of Art’s annual Spring Student Exhibition will be a juried event for a second year, with art students displaying work in all media, including painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, graphic design and digital art. Artist Christopher Cannon, who teaches at the College of DuPage and the Illinois Institute of Art, will serve as the distinguished juror for the exhibition, which began on Monday. Cash prizes will be awarded for Best of Show, first place and second place. “Our first juried student exhibition was a great success, and I am looking forward to seeing the work that is selected for this show,” said Suellen Rocca, curator and director of exhibitions at Elmhurst College. Cannon’s academic degrees are in printmaking, but his expertise is in screen printing. Cannon exhibits his work nationally and internationally at galleries, universities and alternative art spaces. Several of his works are included in permanent and private collections in the U.S. and abroad. Elmhurst College hosts about 12 art shows each year

Tri-Town YMCA makes donations SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA LOMBARD — As part of an ongoing effort to help improve the health, happiness and well-being of community members, the Tri-Town YMCA has made donations to local charity organizations. A toy box and toys were donated to the Disciples Food Pantry in Villa Park to be used by the children who come with their parents to get food. While the Tri-Town YMCA’s executive director Joanne Mitrenga was conducting a community health assessment survey, she no-

ticed the children waiting at the food pantry and wanted to find a way to help them. “You could tell that the children were doing their best to be patient, but it was very hard for them to remain in line with nothing to do,” Mitrenga said. Since the Tri-Town YMCA received a Pioneering Healthier Communities grant in 2011, the organization has worked with local leaders and organizations to find ways to develop opportunities for healthy living. Through this project, the YMCA learned that families

who are struggling financially often neglect their personal health and fitness. To help people stay active even when they are struggling, the Tri-Town YMCA also donated fitness equipment to Catholic Charities’ Hope House. The Hope House is a shelter that provides people with a temporary home and helps residents find jobs and save money for permanent housing. To learn more about the Tri-Town YMCA’s community outreach programs, call the organization at 630-629-9622.

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.

Opera troupe’s ‘Savoir Flaire’ to soar on language of love By ALLISON HORNE msleditorial@shawmedia.com Keeping the classical vocal arts alive and well is key to Elgin Opera, which will present a French-infused homage to the language of love, blending excerpts from the opera “Lakmé” with songs from “Les Miserables” and “South Pacific.” Artistic Director Susan Dennis of Bartlett, who teaches voice at Elmhurst College, leads the troupe. In addition to performances, the company trains singers from across the region. The organization was founded as Opera Professional Entertainers Repertoire Association (O.P.E.R.A.) in 2001. Dennis, who first became involved when she auditioned for the role of

Adele in “Die Fledermaus,” decided to take it one step further, and began working with founder SolSusan ange Sior. The Dennis name became Elgin Opera, as it underwent the change to a nonprofit. When Sior, a noted soprano, turned her emphasis to her performance career, Dennis took the reins of artistic director. For the coming presentation of “Savoir Flaire,” Dennis serves as musical director and will sing the title role in “Lakmé,” an opera by Delibes about a Hindu princess. The concert will feature the opera’s second act.

Dennis also will serve as pianist for the musical theater selections. “There’s a lot of … people involved (who will) have the solos,” Dennis says. In building the concert program, members of Elgin Opera’s performing and training ensembles were asked to sing, as well as the winners of its vocal competition held last year. Dennis also chose to involve local Channing Elementary School students. The children have been learning French after school to be able to take part in “Savoir Flaire.” “We teach the children (so) they can be doing some songs,” Dennis says. “We’re going to have all the kids participate, so they have an expe-

rience and have the opportunity to do a little musical sort of thing.” They will join in on three French folk songs and during

the highlights from “South Pacific.” Dennis is not only a professional singer herself, but also shares her passion for the vocal arts with aspiring students. She teaches vocal lessons and musical theater workshops at Elmhurst and Harper colleges. “I really enjoy teaching students vocal technique, and the aspects of good singing technique, so when they learn their repertoire, they have a good foundation,” Dennis says, adding she’s excited about the coming concert. “This is our big show of the year; it’s incorporating both elements — musical theater and opera,” she says. “We want to expose people to this higher level of vocal music.”

GIRLS TRACK & FIELD PREVIEW | 2013 By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com

Glenbard East

Montini Coach: Pete Connelly Top returners: Theresa Connelly, sr. (mid. distance, hurdles) Brittany Fisher, jr. (distance) Daria Floyd, sr. (triple jump, sprints) Maggie Hallerud, jr. (distance) Catherine Kitz, sr. (distance) Kelly McNamara, so. (sprints, long jump) What to watch: The Broncos have ambitious goals based on a young group of talented athletes coming up as well as three returners from the 4 x 800-meter relay that took second in Class 3A last year. “Our goals are to contend for a conference championship, win at least one event at state and contend for a state trophy,” said coach Pete Connelly. Theresa Connelly, Catherine Kitz and Brittany Fisher are back in the 4 x 800. The team’s fastest sprinter, according to Connelly, is sophomore Kelly McNamara. McNamara suffered a concussion in the offseason but is expected back soon. Freshman Gianna Salzbrunn should also contribute right away in sprints and long jump.

Addison Trail Coach: Dave Pytko Top returners: Yulisa Vivero, sr. (sprints) What to watch: The Blazers struggled at the West Suburban Gold indoor meet. Vivero was AT’s only individual athlete to score points. The sprinter will hope to continue her success in the outdoor season.

Willowbrook Coach: Clyde Ware Top returners: Danielle Beamon, jr. (sprints, long jump) Kayla Denwood, so. (mid. distance) Marisa Klaassen, sr. (sprints) Molly Krawczykowski, jr. (sprints, mid. distance) Colleen Krawczykowski, sr. (long jump, sprints, mid. distance) Jada Stills, jr. (shot put) What to watch: Thanks to the Krawczykowski sisters, Colleen and Molly, the Warriors will be a threat in relays. Colleen returns from the 4 x 100- and 4 x 200-meter relays that Willowbrook sent to state last year. Danielle Beamon and Marisa Klaassen should also contribute to the relays. Shot putter Jada Stills won the West Suburban Gold indoor meet.

LBS/VPA

Coach: Joe Latala Top athletes: Anitra Davis, jr. (sprints) Stephany Flores, jr. (sprints) Jamie Gradishar, sr. (pole vault) Lindsay Graham, fr. (distance) Angela Kerndl, so. (jumps) Maddie Smith, jr. (jumps) What to watch: Jamie Gradishar is the Rams’ lone individual state qualifier to return this season. The pole vaulter was second in the DuPage Valley Conference indoor meet. The other individual standout should be freshman Lindsay Graham. After starring for the cross country team and qualifying for state in the fall, Graham capped off the indoor season with a DVC title in the 3,200-meter run. She will be a threat in both the 1,600 and 3,200 throughout the year. The Rams have some strong relays as well. Anitra Davis and Stephany Flores will be key runners for the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200 relays.

York Coach: Annette Schulte Top returners: Julia Biegler, jr. (jumps) Shante Dansby, so. (sprints) Emma Fisher, sr. (distance) Josephine Jelinek, so. (sprints) Amy Nosek, jr. (high jump) What to watch: Emma Fisher headlines as York’s top athlete. After finishing second at state cross country in the fall and fifth in the 3,200-meter run last spring, Fisher will be looking to improve upon that this year. The Dukes’ senior should be a threat in the 3,200 and the 1,600. Sophomores Shante Dansby and Josephine Jelinek return after competing in the Dukes’ 4 x 400 relay last spring. The Dukes were eighth at state in the event last year. As for field events, Amy Nosek was a state qualifier in the high jump, and Julia Biegler placed in both the triple jump and the high jump at the West Suburban Silver indoor meet.

BOYS TRACK & FIELD PREVIEW | 2013 By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com

Glenbard East Coach: Jack Brady Top returners: Vince Booth jr. (mid. distance) Brad Busching, sr. (distance) Jovan Newsum, sr. (distance) Jack Peters, jr. (mid. distance) Vince Singer, sr. (sprints) Tim Swanson, sr. (distance) What to watch: The Rams will find it hard to compete in the DuPage Valley Conference, but they do have a number of quality athletes. Jack Peters and Vince Booth are both state hopefuls in the 800. East’s 4 x 400-meter relay, which qualified for state last year, was second at the DVC indoor meet with a time of 3:32.50. That time is already near the state-qualifying mark, impressive for the indoor season.

Montini Coach: Chris Andriano Top returners: Logan Goss, sr. (sprints) Michael Hollingshed, so. (sprints) Mike Spangler, sr. (sprints) Dimitri Taylor, sr. (sprints) What to watch: The Broncos don’t have a big team in terms of numbers, but their 4 x100- and 4 x 200-meter relays should be very competitive. Mike Spangler, Logan Goss and Dimitri Taylor return from

the 4 x 100 relay that qualified for state last year. Sophomore Michael Hollingshed is expected to join the relays. Spangler will anchor both sprint relays and is the Broncos’ best chance for an individual state qualifier.

Addison Trail Coach: Bruce Kelsay Top returners: Joe Atria, sr. (distance) Anthony Guzman, sr. (sprints) Kevin Otte, sr. (distance) Steve Pudelek, sr. (sprints) Trey Smith, jr. (sprints) Javier Valdez, jr. (mid. distance) What to watch: The Blazers have just four seniors on the roster, but all four are key parts of the team. Joe Atria has the school record in the 1,600-meter run and won the indoor conference title in that event. He is the Blazers’ best chance for an individual state qualifier. Kevin Otte joined Atria on the West Suburban Gold indoor champion 4 x 800 relay team. Anthony Guzman and Steve Pudelek are parts of the sprint relay teams. Juniors Javier Valdez and Trey Smith should also score points regularly for the Blazers. Valdez won the 600 at indoor conference and Smith has a chance to qualify for state in the 100 and 200.

Glenn Morgan returns to bolster York’s field events.

Willowbrook Coach: T.J. Artman Top returners: Matt Burns, jr. (sprints) Tim Hyde, sr. (distance) Matt McNamara, sr. (throws) Zach Stubbs, sr. (mid. distance) What to watch: After finishing fourth in the West Suburban Gold indoor meet, the Warriors are hoping to crack the top three in the outdoor season. Matt Burns won an indoor conference title in the 400 and was third in the 200 and high jump and could be the team’s best chance of a state qualifier. Junior varsity newcomers to watch include Hayden Adams

(triple jump), Jake Bloemke (sprints and jumps) and Dylan Jones (sprints).

York Coach: Stan Reddel Top returners: Alex Bashqawi, jr. (distance) Shawn John, sr. (pole vault) Chris May, sr. (distance) Scott Milling, sr. (distance) Nathan Mroz, jr. (distance) What to watch: As usual, the Dukes are very strong in distance races. Four cross country runners — Alex Bashqawi, Chris May, Scott Milling and Nathan Mroz — will help York be a force in the 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs.

May, Milling and Mroz were state qualifiers last year. Milling especially should be a contender in the 3,200.

Junior pitcher Miller earns second win for Rams By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com LOMBARD — Grace Miller wasn’t slated as Glenbard East’s top pitcher entering the season, but the junior has earned the Rams’ first two wins. Miller picked up a complete game shutout at Nazareth on Wednesday to carry East to a 6-0 win. The junior is having little trouble adjusting to varsity softball so far this season.

Upcoming doubleheader Who: Glenbard East at Hinsdale Central When: 10 a.m. Saturday Where: 5500 Grant St., Hinsdale

“It’s not that bad,” Miller said. “It’s like travel when you play at that level so it’s the same.” Sophomore Kelli Tyler

drove in three runs in the first with a bases-clearing double. Tyler was 2-for-3 with two doubles and four RBIs. Megan Cotterill and freshman Kailey Lyons each had two hits. That was more than enough run support to Miller, who struck out six Roadrunners and surrendered just three hits. “She had good placement and we finally got the bats going,” said East coach Val Pinzker. “We were frustrated because we had people in scor-

ing position and we couldn’t get it done. Things were kind of coming together.” Cotterill, Kara Tadda and Brittany Plimmer have been the Rams’ top bats early in the season. The senior trio is performing as expected for a Rams team that has six returning seniors. The Rams got the season started on Saturday by splitting a doubleheader with Downers Grove North. East lost Game 1 3-2 and took the second game 11-8. On Tues-

day, they fell to Lyons Township 4-2. Thanks to early season cancellations and a string of scheduled road games, the Rams aren’t expected to play their first home until Thursday against Rolling Meadows. “We’re a little behind where we normally are at this point, but we’re happy with how things are going,” Pinzker said. “We’ve been within winning position in every game that we’ve played so far.”

Troy Huber pitched a complete game and struck out eight Knights. Joe Kotch had two hits and a walk. The 3-8 start is not what East had envisioned with a senior-heavy and experienced group back from a 22-win squad last spring. However, with conference play right around the corner, the Rams have an opportunity to right the ship.

LOMBARD — The weather has slowed the start of the baseball season for most teams in the area, but Glenbard East baseball has been busy playing 11 games in the past 13 days. The Rams are a disappointing 3-8 after spending spring break in Indiana and Kentucky. On March 27, Downers Grove North beat East 4-0 and that started a five-game losing streak. The Rams lost both games in Evansville, Ind. the next day, falling to Castle 4-0 and Evansville Mater Dei 2-1. Once the Rams arrived in Louisville, they lost to Pleasant Prairie Ridge 9-0 last Friday. On Saturday, Christian Academy of Louisville beat East 11-1 in the first game before the Rams ended the skid with a 13-1 victory in Game 2. St. Louis University-bound Nick Vichio limited Christian Academy to one run over six innings and had three strikeouts in the win. Vichio and Yoanny Gonzalez each had three hits. The results, albeit closer, haven’t been much better since the Rams returned to the Chicago area. A 5-4 loss to Lake Park on

DRAWING WITH MARK!

Start with basic shapes.

How to write

KIDZ BUZZ |

LET’S PRACTICE DRAWING A TREE!

31

ED • Friday, April 5, 2013 • mysuburbanlife.com • Press Publications

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

Watch Drawing with Mark! Check your local listings www.DrawingwithMark.com

ANGELS FROM THE ATTIC

4. Use a 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.

PHOTOS BY MORGUEFILE

Keep practicing and having fun!

3. Keep a journal 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.

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.

Baird & Warner Donates $50,000 to Chicago Food Pantries, Local Charities in December The Baird & Warner Good Will Network Increases $25,000 to $50,000

CHICAGO, IL – The Baird & Warner Good Will Network donated $50,000 to local charities in December 2012, providing aid to non-profit organizations that assist Chicagoland residents. Of the total $50,000 donation, $25,000 was given to the joint effort between the Greater Chicago Food Depository and the Northern Illinois Food Bank, $10,000 was given to both the CARA Program and La Casa Norte and $5,000 was given to Genesis House. These charities were selected by the Baird & Warner broker associate advisory board and then voted on by the entire company. While the original goal was to give away $25,000 to one charity, an outpouring of support led the Baird & Warner Good Will Network to increase its donation to benefit all five organizations. “We created the Baird & Warner Good Will Network in 2002 to help raise money in the aftermath of September 11. What has kept it going all of these years has been the generous spirit of our broker associates and staff which was demonstrated in the astounding support we received for these worthy charities,” said Jennifer Alter Warden, president

of residential sales at Baird & Warner. The Baird & Warner Good Will Network seeks to provide relief to local nonprofit organizations, with a focus on shelter and homelessness particularly for families and children. Through the Good Will Network Fund, held at the Chicago Community Trust, Baird & Warner collects donations throughout the year to provide large and small charitable contributions. These contributions, as well as ongoing volunteerism from broker associates, management team and staff, have added up to thousands of volunteer hours and $1.3 million worth of donations to a wide array of local causes.

Mortgage Rates Nudge Higher MCLEAN, VA–(Marketwire - Mar 28, 2013) - Freddie Mac today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing average fixed mortgage rates moving slightly higher for the week but still remaining near historic lows. The average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has remained below 4 percent for over a year providing support to the ongoing housing recovery.

News Facts • 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.57 percent with an average 0.8 point for the week ending March 28, 2013, up from last week when it averaged 3.54 percent. Last year at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.99 percent. • 15-year FRM this week averaged 2.76 percent with an average 0.7 point, up from last week when it averaged 2.72 percent. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 3.23 percent. • 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) averaged 2.68 percent this week with an average 0.6 point, up from last week when it averaged 2.61 percent. A year ago, the 5-year ARM averaged 2.90 percent. • 1-year Treasury-indexed ARM averaged 2.62 percent this week with an average 0.3 point, down from last week when it averaged 2.63 percent. At this time last year, the 1-year ARM averaged 2.78 percent. Average commitment rates should be reported along with average fees and points to reflect the total upfront cost of obtaining the mortgage. Visit the following links for the Regional and National Mortgage Rate Details and Definitions. Borrowers may still pay closing costs which are not included in the survey.

Quotes Attributed to Frank Nothaft, vice president and chief economist, Freddie Mac. “Low and relatively steady mortgage rates are invigorating the housing market. For instance, existing home sales over January and February experienced the strongest two-month pace since November 2009, while new home sales were the strongest since August and September 2008. This strong demand helped push the S&P/Case-Shiller® 20-city home price index (seasonally adjusted) in January to its highest reading since December 2008. Moreover, the number of consumers expecting to purchase a home over the next six months rose to 5.6 percent in March, the second highest share since data was first collected in February 1964, according to The Conference Board.” Freddie Mac was established by Congress in 1970 to provide liquidity, stability and affordability to the nation’s residential mortgage markets. Freddie Mac supports communities across the nation by providing mortgage capital to lenders. Today Freddie Mac is making home possible for one in four home borrowers and is one of the largest sources of financing for multifamily housing.
