GET TO KNOW: JAMES DAVIDSON By DAN FARNHAM dfarnham@shawmedia.com

Lemont native James Davidson, who plans to pursue a doctorate in chemistry, on Tuesday was named an “Outstanding Chemistry Major” by North Central College.

About James Davidson Age: 28 Residence: Aurora; grew up in Lemont Hobbies: Target shooting and woodworking; plays violin Notable: Given the “Outstanding Chemistry Major” award from North Central College Tuesday for exemplary student work

being in the Marine Corps, Davidson found life as a student to be an adjust-

ment, particularly being around other students. “I would see students come in five minutes late, and I would totally want to smack them,” he said with a laugh. “I totally lost sight that that was me only a couple of years ago.” In 2009, he had surgery to remove the damaged lobe in his lung. The nurse at Hines VA Hospital told him about changes to the Post 9/11 GI Bill that would cover his tuition, so he enrolled at North Central College in fall 2011. Thinking he would major in crimi-

nal justice, a general education chemistry class opened his eyes to the practical applications of chemistry, he said. Eventually, he switched his major. He was drawn to analytical chemistry because “it’s about being perfect and being exact in what you do.” Though he didn’t immediately go to college, Davidson would encourage other veterans to give higher education a try. “If you’re covered by the GI Bill, you really have nothing to lose. It changed my life in no small way.”

LEMONT – Higher education and a career in science was not the obvious path for Lemont native James Davidson. But a little more than eight years after getting medically discharged from the Marine Corps, the North Central College student is graduating with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, has an Outstanding Student award in his pocket and is planning to pursue a doctorate. A self-described “lazy bum” in high school who didn’t care about class or his grades, Davidson is headed to the University of Utah, where he is pursuing a doctorate in analytical chemistry with a focus on fuel and aeronautical research. A couple weeks into training in the Marine Corps, Davidson developed a high fever that was later diagnosed as pneumonia. After weeks of treatment, he returned to boot camp and graduated in October. But before going to combat training, he was sent to the Naval Hospital, where extensive tests determined the lower lobe of his left lung was permanently damaged. He was medically discharged from the Marine Corps and returned to Lemont in March 2004. Although it was frustrating at the time, Davidson said he can see now that it was all part of God’s plan for his life. “I essentially got discharged about six months before I would have been sent to Iraq,” said Davidson, the son of Corinne and Paul Davidson of Lemont. “If I never got sick, I could be dead now.” It was in January of 2007 when the 2003 Lemont High School graduate started taking night classes at Moraine Valley while working as a maintenance man in Woodridge.

Pamphlet is latest barb between utility company, water agency By ANNA SCHIER aschier@shawmedia.com LEMONT – “Did you know you’re paying for Lake Michigan water?” That was the question posed to 11,500 households in Lemont via a pamphlet recently distributed by utility company Illinois American Water in response to an eminent domain lawsuit filed against IAW in January. The suit was filed by the Northern Will County Joint Action Water Agency – made up of officials from the villag-

Lemont’s role in pipeline take-over Just 1 percent of Lemont households – 17 – are served by Illinois American Water, while the remaining 99 percent are served by wells, Mayor Brian Reaves said. Lemont originally joined the agency because of a state statute mandate, Reaves said, but its presence in the organization also is meant to be a demonstration of solidarity with Homer Glen and Bolingbrook, the communities most affected by the eminent domain suit. “It’s outrageous what IAW is charging,” Reaves said.

es of Lemont, Homer Glen, Bolingbrook, Woodridge and Romeoville – and the pamphlet is the latest quarrel between the two groups as the agency attempts to seize the pipeline

that brings Lake Michigan water to the suburbs. It accused the water agency of misleading residents and involving the municipalities in an endeavor that IAW pre-

dicts could cost as much as five times the agency’s $37.5 million estimate. It also angered the mayors and officials who make up the water agency, including Lemont Mayor Brian Reaves. “These fliers are an attempt to create controversy,” Reaves said Tuesday at a Village Board meeting. “Illinois American’s propaganda distorts the facts.” Reaves also assured residents that no general obligation bonds will be used in the pipeline acquisition attempt, and residents will not pay any-

thing unless they are served by IAW. “The water agency has no taxing authority,” he said. “It is false to imply that the water agency could adopt a sales tax.” But Michael Smyth, senior manager of field services and production at IAW, claims the water agency does have taxing authority. “They are spending residents’ tax dollars on this effort without telling them a plan,” Smyth said.

Lemont woman waits for Chicago Blackhawks win before delivering baby SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA LEMONT – The first contraction hit Donna Lebano on May 9 during the second period of the Blackhawks game. “No way was I leaving,” said Lebano, who was eight months pregnant. “We are a Hawks family. I had to see the end of the game.” She did see the end of the game, and Chicago beat the Minnesota Wild, 5-1, to win

“Once the contractions started, I was so afraid I was going to give birth at the United Center.” Donna Lebano Lemont resident the first-round playoff series and advance to the next round. The minute the game was over, Lebano was driven

to Adventist Hinsdale Hospital by her three sisters, who were timing her contractions the whole way. Owen Michael was born two hours later at 3:12 a.m., weighing 6-pounds, 5-ounces and 19.5 inches long. Donna Lebano said the excitement of the game probably caused her to go into labor. “There were five goals in that game,” she said. “That’s a lot of jumping and cheering. Once the contractions

started, I was so afraid I was going to give birth at the United Center.” Donna’s husband, Charles, was at home in Lemont when he received a text message from his wife. She told him not to panic, but she thought she was going into labor and there was no way she was going to leave the game before it ended. “I couldn’t believe it,” said Charles, who was at home with Owen’s big brother, 19-month-old Christian. “And now look at him. I can already tell Owen is going to be a big Hawks fan and probably a professional hockey player himself.”

LEMONT – The village of Lemont hosted an open house and rededication ceremony Monday in celebration of the newly renovated Village Hall. The building, built in 1893, recently underwent $2.3 million in major repairs and technology improvements. After the improvements, the hall now is in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and has a stable structure, as well as improved electrical and information technology systems. Rep. Dan Lipinski attended Monday’s rededication, as did Lemont’s three previous mayors. The event was hosted in conjunction with the Lemont Area Chamber of Commerce open house. The Chamber offices are in the renovated Village Hall.

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.

Ordinance amendment for parking lots approved LEMONT – The Lemont Village Board on Monday voted to approve a zoning ordinance amendment that will allow institutions to build accessory parking lots not on their property. The amendment follows a recent discussion about St. Patrick Church’s interest in constructing a parking lot at 217 Cass St. The property, which is within the village’s historic district, is the site of a 19th-century home. The board voted to grant St. Patrick permission to demolish the house at its April 22 meeting.

“It’s not a vote on 217 Cass,” said Planning and Economic Development Director Jim Brown, of the zoning amendment approved Monday. “It would allow them to apply for a special use.” To receive a permit, St. Patrick’s would need to attend a public hearing before the Lemont Planning and Zoning Commission, Brown said in a previous interview. The commission would then make a recommendation to the Village Board. Brown also told the board Monday that he is meeting with The Brew Hounds, a craft brewery that has expressed interest in setting up shop at 431 Talcott Ave., onsite Tuesday.

Reader takes stance on gay marriage

Write to us

To the Editor: On May 4, pro-family people attended a large demonstration outside Rep. Ron Sandack’s office because he says he’s going to vote FOR homosexual “marriage” in Illinois. The ancient and primitive Greeks and Romans crassly and perversely valued homosexual relations. But eventually, the people wised up and realized that was a mistake, and homosexual activity again was deemed unethical and was basically driven underground. Now, many Democrats and even some Republicans are trying to take us back thousands of years to more primitive and decadent times, despite the fact that thinking people have known for centuries that homosexual activity is immoral and a bad legal precedent. It may come as a surprise to you that some colleges like Harvard now officially have recognized student groups devoted to promoting the acceptance of BDSM – sexually deviant bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism. That’s right. If you are a student who likes to smack people around, some colleges such as Harvard now have groups for you. He who has eyes to see, let them see. The “logic” of heterophobic, regressive homosexuals is rapidly leading this society down a slippery slope to a more and more aberrant and disordered society.

Patricia Paloumpis, co-owner of Gusteau’s Gluten Free Shoppe in Lemont, is shown some of the store’s gluten-free baked goods.

Gluten-free shop opens in Lemont By ANNA SCHIER aschier@shawmedia.com LEMONT – Chiropractors Ed Beyer and Jeff Forzley realized at a recent conference that they were interested in opening gluten-free businesses. The two medical professionals decided to join forces to pursue their mission of bringing gluten-free food to the southwest suburbs. The fruit of their labor is Lemont’s newest business, Gusteau’s Gluten Free Shoppe, which opened Saturday at 1246 State St. “I felt there was a big need for it,” said Forzley, who practices chiropractics and holistic medicine at Lemont Natural Healthcare. Gusteau’s includes a retail section with grocery products, a full carryout menu featuring items prepared in a gluten-free kitchen, catering services and baked goods. Forzley and Beyer treat patients who are on gluten-free

diets. They also emphasize the significance of food sensitivity in their medicinal work. During the past 15 years, gluten sensitivity almost has quadrupled, Forzley said. Co-owner Patricia Paloumpis, who is married to Beyer, says that people who have trouble consuming gluten often encounter challenges finding food options that aren’t cross-contaminated. The carryout kitchen plays an important role at Gusteau’s by providing fresh entrées that are safe for consumption, she said. The staff at Gusteau’s is on a gluten-free diet, as well. Paloumpis said gluten-free habits can reduce headaches and digestive problems, while contributing to an overall sense of wellness. Gluten-free products also provide an alternative for customers interested in avoiding genetically modified foods, Paloumpis said. For information, call Gusteau’s at 630-243-7600.

Centennial Campus entrance getting facelift LEMONT – The Lemont Park District will begin construction July 5 on an improved entranceway at the Centennial Campus. Funded primarily by a $400,000 “Safe Routes to

School” federal grant, this project will reconfigure the main thoroughfare of the campus that serves the district’s preschool program and neighboring Old Quarry Middle School, improving driving conditions and solving a flooding issue that is experienced after heavy rains. In July and part of August, members and guests visiting Centennial Campus, The CORE and the Outdoor Aquatics Center will enter through Old Quarry Middle School’s entrance. Old Quarry Middle School’s parking lot also will be made available to district visitors to accommodate for some of the parking spaces being unavailable during construction.

District has completed installation of two outdoor pool heaters at the Centennial Outdoor Aquatic Center. The heaters are part of a green technology update. The park district, along with its architect, Studio GC, worked with Green Hills Library Systems to secure the donation of the two heating units before last year’s summer season. The project took a year of work with architects, contractors, utility suppliers and the Illinois Department of Public Health. The outdoor pool season starts with the Centennial Pool Season Pass Holder “Member’s Only” opening party on May 31. The pool opens to the public June 1.

Coping with seasonal allergies T

And at the Altenheim, you’ll be able to protect it with rent that is reasonable. But the Altenheim is so much more... It is surrounded with beautiful grounds and wildlife, seniors who look out for one another and apartment selections and activities to suit your active lifestyle. You’ll be as happy as a lark here; come visit us to find out why.

he season of allergy-induced sniffles and other complications is right around the corner. If you are one of the millions of people affected by seasonal allergies that lead to nasal swelling, sneezing, watery eyes, and a scratchy throat, you may not be eagerly anticipating the warmer weather as much as others. Allergy research is ongoing, and in the future doctors may be able to prevent allergic reactions from occurring rather than treating the symptoms that ensue. Until then, you will have to work with the remedies that currently exist. These remedies include antihistamines, which can cause dangerous interactions with other medications and may cause drowsiness. These side effects can be dangerous for use in seniors. Consider these other options instead.

• Drink plenty of fluids. Although liquids can’t wash the allergens out of your system, water, juice and clear broths can help loosen congestion. Hot liquids can soothe inflamed membranes in the nose and throat. • Avoid allergens as much as possible. Check weather reports for the levels of particulates in the air and stay indoors if they are high. Keep away from tall grasses and places with a lot of foliage. • Use the air conditioning. Rather than keeping the windows wide open, use an air conditioner and dehumidifier to filter the air coming inside of the house and ensuring it is cool and dry. • Head to the beach. If you want to spend time outdoors, areas by the ocean will have pollen counts that are much lower than in mountainous areas. • Dry clothes indoors. Line-dried clothes may smell fresh, but they can bring molds and pollens indoors and exacerbate allergies. • Shower frequently. After being outdoors, take a shower to rinse off any allergens clinging to hair and skin. • Check with a doctor. Before mixing allergy medications with any prescriptions you are taking, ensure that they are safe to mix. If your doctor is unavailable, consult with a pharmacist about drug interactions.

s the Baby Boomer generation enters retirement age, there has been an increased demand for services that meet the needs of this segment of the population. Amenities such as active-living communities that boast top-of-the-line features typically are the first things individuals seek. Age-restricted, 55-plus communities cater to what the name implies – people who are age 55 and older. However, these home developments are a far cry from what they used to be. Now they rival some of the best resorts in their features and are designed entirely around the needs of a group of active, amenity driven people. Plus, considering there now are more Americans age 65 and older than in any other point in history, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, developers understand the benefits of catering to this group of people. Therefore, there are more high-end active-living communities now than ever before. There are many choices with regard to active adult retirement communities. Many of these developments boast everything from detached, single-family homes to villas to condominiums. These residences are built with the active adult in mind. Here are some of the benefits that these communities boast. Community companionship Due to the age-restricted nature of active-adult-home-developments, the residents are all in a similar age range, and may have similar interests. At a time in life when friendships from work may waver due to retirement, and older children may be busy with their own lives, these communities can help foster new friendships. Whether through community-sponsored activities or just through home proximity, residents can enjoy one another’s company and never worry about feeling lonely into their retirement years. Low- or no-maintenance living One of the biggest attractions to active-adult living is that these homes are built to provide worry-free living. Included in the home ownership fees are provisions to take care of much of the interior and exterior maintenance. That means should a pipe leak or the lawn needs mowing, maintenance staff rather than the homeowner will handle the problem. This peace of mind enables residents to pursue interests rather than worry about the upkeep on their homes. Many times the community is expertly manicured, helping to create an aesthetically pleasing environment. Activity-based fun Many communities build activities into the living plan. Therefore, there may be a workout room, the game center, exercise classes, movie nights, and many other attractions to keep residents busy. Active-adult communities may be similar to all-inclusive vacations and cruises in that they have their own activities coordinator on staff. Should residents prefer solo activities, the property on which these homes are built are often created with recreation in mind. There can be walking paths or areas for cycling. Pools and spas are often part of the living package as well. Security Individuals who are no longer bogged down with work requirements may be more likely to take vacations or go visiting. In a traditional home, there may be worries about leaving the home unattended for a period of time. However, in 55-plus residences, homes may be in gated communities or have security patrols. Also, the sheer number of homes in a townhouse-style building can camouflage homes that are currently vacant, easing the minds of those who are planning on going away. Concierge services Some of the more exclusive communities may have staff who can help with everything from booking vacations to helping with moving details. There also are developments that offer transitional homes, and someone may be available to help with the transition from an active-style home to one that has nursing staff or assisted living offerings at that time in life when it is needed. Active-living communities offer many of the features that recently retired people seek in homes that do not compromise on amenities. Individuals who are looking for comfortable, maintenance-free homes often seek out these developments for the convenience and services they offer.

These foods may help prevent cancer

C

ancer is a potentially deadly disease that does not discriminate based on a person’s age, sex, ethnicity, or social status. Though anyone can get cancer, the National Institute on Aging notes that a person’s risk of getting cancer increases with age, even if that person has no family history of cancer. That reality highlights the importance of routine cancer screenings for men and women age 50 and older. While screenings are an important part of detecting and treating cancer, those over 50 should know they can take certain measures to possibly prevent the onset of cancer. For example, including certain foods as part of a regular diet may be effective at preventing cancer. Though there’s no way to guarantee a person won’t get cancer, the following foods may help lower the risk.

• Blueberries:

• Fatty ish:

Blueberries may help prevent the onset of neck and mouth cancers. That’s because blueberries are rich in antioxidants, which the American Institute for Cancer Research notes can protect cells from being damaged.

Fatty fish, including salmon, that is full of omega-3 fatty acids has been linked to a host medical benefits, including lowering a person’s risk of cancer and heart disease.

• Tomatoes:

• Whole grains:

• Coffee:

Tomatoes are loaded with lycopene, a carotenoid that numerous studies have indicated can reduce incidence of cancer, cardiovascular disease and macular degeneration. These studies have based their findings on tomato consumption and not on the use of lycopene supplements, which may or may not be effective at preventing cancer. Cooked tomatoes can improve the body’s ability to absorb lycopene, further enhancing its ability to protect the body against cancer.

Whole grains can help men and women control their weight, as they are lower in calories than more traditional options. But studies have shown that whole grains, which can be found in whole-grain and whole-wheat pastas, can also reduce your risk of colon cancer.

Though studies about the efficacy of coffee as a potentially preventive agent against cancer are ongoing, some studies have found that both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee can lower a person’s risk of developing colon, endometrial and prostate cancer.


Now, in Glen Ellyn, IL, one doctor is helping local residents with knee pain live more active, pain-free lives.

Living with knee pain can feel like a crippling experience. Do you have any of the following conditions? • Arthritis • Knee Pain • Cartilage damage • ‘Bone-on-bone’ • Tendonitis • Bursitis • Crunching and popping sounds Let’s face it, your knees aren’t as young as they used to be, and playing with the kids or grandkids isn’t any easier either. Maybe your knee pain keeps you from walking short distances or playing golf like you used to. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your knee hurts and the pain just won’t go away! If you’re suffering from these conditions, a new breakthrough in medical technology may completely eliminate your pain and help restore normal function to your knees. Finally, You Have An Option Other Than Drugs or Surgery New research in a treatment called low level laser therapy, or Cold Laser, is having a profound effect on patients suffering with knee pain. Unlike the cutting type of laser seen in movies and used in medical procedures, the cold laser penetrates the surface of the skin with no heating effect or damage. Cold laser therapy has been tested for 40 years, had over 2000 papers published on it, and been shown to aid in damaged tissue regeneration, decrease inflammation, relieve pain and boost the immune system. This means that there is a good chance cold laser therapy could be your knee pain solution, allowing you to live a more active lifestyle. Professional athletes like Tiger Woods and team members of the New England Patriots rely upon cold laser therapy to treat their sports-related injuries. These guys use the cold laser for one reason only… It Promotes Rapid Healing Of The Injured Tissues. Before the FDA would clear the cold laser for human use, they wanted to see proof that it worked. This led to two landmark studies. The first study showed that patients who had cold laser therapy had 53% better improvement than those who had a placebo. The second study showed patients who used the laser therapy had less pain and more range of motion days after treatment. If the cold laser can help these patients, it can help you too. Could This Non-Invasive, Natural Treatment Be The Answer To Your Knee Pain? For the first 25 callers only, I’m running a very special offer where you can find out if you are a candidate for cold laser therapy.

CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR

What does this offer include? Everything I normally do in my “Knee Pain Evaluation”. Just be one of the first 25 callers and here’s what you’ll get… • An in-depth consultation about your problem where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. • A complete neuromuscular examination. • A full set of specialized x-rays to determine if arthritis is contributing to your pain. • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray indings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain free. • You’ll see everything irst hand and ind out if this amazing treatment will be your pain solution, like it has been for so many other patients. The first 25 callers only can get everything I’ve listed here for only $35*. The normal price for this type of evaluation including x-rays is $250, so you’re saving a considerable amount by taking me up on this offer. Remember what it was like before you had knee problems; when you were pain free and could enjoy everything life had to offer. It can be that way again. Don’t neglect your problem any longer – don’t wait until it’s too late. Here’s what to do now: Due to the expected demand for this special offer, I urge you to call our office at once. The phone number is 630-858-9900. Call today and we can get started with your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening in the schedule. Don’t miss this valuable offer. Be one of the first 25 callers and tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Knee Evaluation. Sincerely, Dr. Susan Kelenyi, D.C. P.S. Now you might be wondering… “Is this safe? Are there any side effects or dangers to this?” The FDA cleared the first cold laser in 2002. This was after their study found 76% improvement in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. Their only warning – don’t shine it in your eyes. Of course at our office, the laser is never anywhere near your eyes and we’ll give you a comfortable pair of goggles for safety. Don’t wait and let your knee problems get worse, disabling you for life. Take me up on my offer and call today 630-858-9900.

hough the job market has improved in recent years, many men and women are still out of work. Perhaps most troubling, many of those people are age 55 and older who are fearful of an uncertain future and a job market where they are seemingly overlooked. According to a 2012 study from the Government Accountability Office, the number of long-term unemployed people age 55 and older has more than doubled since the onset of the recession. For many unemployed men and women over the age of 50, the harsh reality of a job market that does not value their experience or skill set is deeply disconcerting. But as difficult as the job market can be for older men and women, it’s not impossible to find a job, though it might take some ingenuity and perseverance. • Don’t limit yourself. Those who were victimized by layoffs should expand their job searches to more than just their previous fields. While it’s definitely a good idea to maintain contacts in your old field and routinely look for openings in that field, it’s also a good idea to examine your skill set and experience and find a new field where these things apply. Chances are your years of experience are transferable to many fields, and redirecting your job hunting efforts to a new line of work might yield opportunities you are not even aware existed. • Embrace the 21st century. Many companies or organizations mistakenly assume that the digital age has passed older workers by. Workers in their 50s might be unfairly categorized as dinosaurs with no grasp of mobile technology or the latest software programs. But those applicants who can demonstrate their proficiency in the latest technologies, including mobile technologies like smartphones, tablets and social media, can put themselves above fellow applicants. • Start working. If you are mired in long-term unemployment and spend every day at home, get out and start working. Volunteering is a great way to lift your spirits, network with other professionals and maybe even learn of employment opportunities you won’t hear about on the couch at home. And volunteering, be it with a charity or a professional organization, is a great way to revive your resume and continue to add accomplishments despite your unemployment. • Emphasize your age. Many unemployed men and women over 50 tend to look at their age as a hindrance that is preventing them from finding gainful employment. But your age can be an advantage, as many organizations find older applicants are more reliable and need less time to adapt than younger applicants with less experience. When emphasizing your age as a positive, don’t focus on job titles, which many other unemployed men and women your age likely highlight on their resumes. Instead, focus on specific achievements and accomplishments and reduce the emphasis you place on job tasks. Achievements tend to stand out above titles, and men and women over 50 likely have achieved more than younger, less experienced applicants. • Think small. Smaller companies wherein employees tend to wear many hats are more likely to value experience than a larger company. By the age of 50, many professionals have vast experience in a host of different positions, and that versatility is likely to appeal to a small company looking for employees who can multitask. Finding a job after the age of 50 isn’t easy. But taking a broad approach and emphasizing as opposed to downplaying your experience might help you stand out among a crowded pool of applicants.

Get more than you’d expect at Trademark Tavern LOMBARD – After looking at the brick exterior and gently sloping roof of the Trademark Tavern, first-time visitors might assume that what they’ll find inside is a cramped, dark space unsuitable for claustrophobes. On the contrary, the interior features a high-ceilinged main room with comfortable tables spaced generously, and a classic-style bar along one wall. And with a name that features the word “tavern,” one might expect standard pub fare, but the cooks here have quite a few tricks up their sleeves. My dining companion and I chose initially to sit in the attractive outdoor seating area, since it was a warm spring evening. But as soon as the sun ducked below the horizon, the temperature dropped quickly, and we asked to be re-seated inside. We noticed right away the appetizer menu had some interesting choices, such as Reuben rolls, bacon-wrapped Cajun shrimp and lamb chop

lollipops. We went with the lamb chops and were rewarded with tasty morsels still on the bone, drizzled with a wonderful marinade and served with a tangy chimichurri sauce on the side. The meat was tender and tasty on its own, but enhanced nicely by the sauce. For the entree, my companion was a little more adventurous than I, opting for the cashew-encrusted tilapia, which comes with beurre blanc sauce, sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes.

Travel clubs’ adventures forge friendships By RENEE TOMELL rtomell@shawmedia.com Two inveterate sightseers have launched travel clubs that are opening up the world – whether it’s Midwest attractions or European dream trips and beyond. “We got the idea because I had no one to travel with,” says Suzanne Venecek of Downers Grove, who with Janet Nawrocki of New Lenox cofounded Adventures, Travel and Social Club, as well as Gutsy Gal Pals. It’s more fun to travel as a group of friends, says Nawrocki, who notes you also avoid the singles supplement fee, and you have a compatible roommate you know instead of relying on the luck of the draw with tour company pairings. “We bring travelers together, so they don’t run into the

situation [of missing out because] of a friend who doesn’t want to go or has been to where you want to go, or who can’t afford it this year,” Nawrocki says. The two groups already number almost 400 members, and 10 recently returned from a river cruise in southern France led by the club founders. Social events are at the heart of both groups, says

Venecek, who defines the target audiences. The Adventures group is co-ed and for any age range, and features more active events such as biking and hiking. Gutsy Gals is for women 45 and older, highlighting cultural events, dinners and neighborhood walks. “When you stop working, you have to recreate yourself,” Venecek says. “Life stops as you knew it, and you have to

make a new life for yourself. The older one is, the harder it is to meet new friends. This is a very safe way to do it.” Social events have taken travel buffs to plays and dinners in Lombard, Wheaton and Downers Grove, as well as activities in Oak Park and Chicago. Shorter domestic getaways, in addition to overseas adventures, are in the works. Describing the recent French river cruise, Nawrocki says, “One little town … was more charming than the one we’d been to. I’d like to do it again.” She’ll lead an Italian trip this fall. Currently being booked is an excursion to Prague combined with a Danube river cruise late next March; a 10 percent discount is offered people who sign up by May 31. Peru’s Machu Picchu,

Lemont’s Mike Wisz takes a cut May 7 at Oak Forest. The Indians’ series sweep against Oak Forest last week went a long way toward securing the conference title.

League champs By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com LEMONT – After tying for the South Suburban Blue conference championship a year ago, Lemont’s baseball team wanted the outright title this spring. The Indians dominated their side of the conference on their way to accomplishing that goal. They boasted a 17-1 league mark heading into Wednesday’s finale against Argo. Lemont hopes that was all just a stepping stone to playoff success.

“We haven’t won it outright in four or five years,”

said Lemont first-year coach Brian Storako. “We’ve got a good ballclub. When we play the way we can, we are one of the better teams in the area. It’s a matter of everyone doing their part, and sometimes that is difficult. We’ve got a fairly young team; we’ve got a lot of juniors that are making an impact.” The Indians recently picked up three conference wins. On May 10, they resumed a game against Reavis in the top of the 12th inning with the score knotted at 9 apiece. The Indians quickly plated four runs,

and Jake Terrazas closed it out in relief. The squad then beat Hillcrest twice earlier this week, by margins of 23-1 Monday and 10-0 Tuesday. “Looking at the stats from last year, the team hit around .330,” Storako said. “Right now, we are around .380. If you look at the three areas, it’s been our hitting then our pitching and then our defense but our fielding is coming up. We are starting to play better all-around. “If we get to where we want to be, we can do some damage.”

This weekend should provide a glimpse of just where Lemont stands heading into the postseason. After taking on Providence on Thursday, the Indians were set to play either New Trier or Oak Park on Friday as part of the Stevi’s Way Tournament. The squad ends that event Saturday before wrapping up the regular season with a matchup against Joliet West on Monday. “The test will be this weekend,” Storako said. “It’s going to be a fun week with the Stevi’s Way and then hosting a regional.”

Caballero stars as starter after pitching relief last year By SCOTT SCHMID

By the numbers

sschmid@shawmedia.com LEMONT – From his seat at U.S. Cellular Field on Sunday, Cody Caballero hoped to pick up a tip or two as he watched left-handed pitchers Chris Sale and CJ Wilson go up against each other. But the way the Lemont senior has been throwing this spring, he doesn’t appear to need much help. Primarily a reliever a year ago, the lefty has excelled in his move to the starting rotation, compiling an 8-1 record after recording the win in Tuesday’s 10-0 rout over Hillcrest. “I was hoping to start more games this year,” Caballero said, “and as it turns out, I’ve gotten a lot of them.” Not the hardest thrower on the staff, he relies instead on control and changing speeds. Caballero has only walked five batters on the season and has compiled an ERA of 1.27. “I don’t throw as hard as a Jake Latz (Lemont junior who is committed to LSU),” he said, “so I concentrate on

and change-ups. I work backwards. “I trust every single person on our defense. If I’m getting groundballs, I trust them

to make the plays.” At times this spring, Caballero has been downright dominant, evidenced by a no-hitter against TF South

and a one-hitter against Bremen. “The no-hitter is definitely my highlight,” he said. “I’ve never had a no-hitter before. I was getting ahead and my offense came out and scored early.” The senior’s contributions have helped Lemont to a 19-4 mark this spring and a South Suburban Blue conference title. “Coach [Brian Storako] keeps us in games and puts the best lineups out there to win,” said Caballero, who hopes to continue playing in college and has talked to Concordia, Elmhurst, Dominican and North Central. “The offense comes around when we need it, the defense is solid and our pitching, when we get ahead, we win a lot of games.”

Indians can avenge losses in regionals

Offensive power leads Lemont into postseason

By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com LEMONT – The Indians have enjoyed an outstanding spring under first-year head coach Brian Storako, compiling a record of 19-4 while capturing the South Suburban Blue conference championship. As part of the Lincoln-Way West sectional, Lemont received the No. 2 seed at its own regional and will open the playoffs against Lincoln-Way West, the team that knocked the Indians out of the postseason a year ago. A victory would likely

set up a matchup against No. 1-seed Joliet Catholic in the regional final. Lemont lost to the Hilltoppers earlier this spring. “We have a chance for a little payback, for lack of a better term,” Storako said. “You always want to get the team that knocked you out the year before. If we do, we will probably

have JCA. At some point, you have to beat those teams whether it is in the regional or the sectional. “Lincoln-Way is solid, Joliet Catholic is solid, the whole regional is solid. But we are pretty confident at home and as long as we play our game, we should be OK.” Offensively, the Indians are led by Mike Papierski, who is hitting .483 with eight doubles and 19 RBIs. Mike Wisz is at .432 with a team-high 34 RBIs and Jake Terrazas checks in at .429 with 26 RBIs. Pitching-wise, Cody Caballero is 8-1 and Jake Latz is 3-0 with 57 strikeouts in 31-2/3 innings.

By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com LEMONT – Reaching the 20win plateau is nothing new for Lemont, which again reached that milestone Tuesday with an 11-2 win over Bremen. Strong in all areas of the game, the Indians were awarded the No. 2 seed at the Nazareth sectional and open up with Noble Street Charter. Down the road, Lemont could see defending Class 3A state champion Glenbard South in the sectional final. “There are definitely some different teams there that we haven’t seen before,” Lemont coach Chris Traina said. “Anything can happen on any given day but if we come out and play our game, we should play a good game. Of course, we want to go as far as we can, but we are tak-

ing it one game at a time.” The offensive numbers that the Indians are putting up this spring are eye-catching. As a team, they are hitting at a .406 clip. Rylie Jay leads the way with her .593 mark to go along with seven homers and 40 RBIs. Lauren May is batting .459 with 36 RBIs and Carly Jaworski is hitting .422 with 25 RBIs. Jaworski also doubles as the team’s pitching ace. She owns a 1.70 ERA in 90-2/3 innings pitched.

Concerns still present for Lemont soccer in spite of dominant first-round win By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com LEMONT – To hear Rick Prangen talk about it, his Lemont soccer team is going down a dangerous path. Having once again dominated the South Suburban Conference, to the tune of allowing only two goals in their 11 victories, the Indians haven’t been challenged by upper-level competition on a consistent basis. So even after Lemont (17-3-2) opened up the Class 3A postseason with a 7-0 victory over Rich South to set up a matchup with Evergreen Park in a regional final today, Prangen worries whether his squad will ratchet up its play the deeper it advances in the playoffs. “It’s hard, it’s definitely a hard road for us in terms of trying to play at a higher level,” he said. “A game like Tuesday, you can see it is in hand in the first 10 minutes. It is hard to motivate and that’s why we’ve been working on competing in practice.” “We had a sharp practice Monday but [Tues-

If you go What: Class 2A soccer regional final Who: Lemont vs. Evergreen Park When: 5 p.m. today Where: Lemont Sports Complex, 131st Street and Bell Road, Lemont

day] was a bad game for us. It sounds foolish with a 7-0 win, but it was a bad game.” In his mind, Prangen is comparing his team’s output with some of the top teams they have seen. “The way I look at it, if we would have played Downers Grove South [on Tuesday], what would have happened?” the coach said. “If we would have played Waubonsie Valley, what would have happened? Well, it wouldn’t have been a good result. “But we did get by the first game. Hopefully we keep progressing and keep moving on. It’s not about winning things. All I ask if we play our best game the last game of the season.”

five more in the fifth frame, improved to 16-2 in the South Suburban Conference. The Indians were set to wrap up league play Thursday with a

matchup against Oak Forest. Against Bremen, Jaworski recorded the victory inside the pitching circle, tossing a complete game while striking out nine as Lemont reached the 20-win plateau this spring. “That’s definitely a goal you want to have every year, to hit that 20-spot,” the coach said. “It’s a credit to the girls.” The squad was coming off a 6-1 non-conference loss Saturday to Downers Grove North. The Trojans feature UICbound pitcher Elaine Heflin,

regarded as one of the best in the state. “She is definitely one of the top pitchers,” Traina said. “She got stronger as the game went on. And Carly pitched a pretty good game as well. We just had one bad inning. They are a good team and a good hitting team.” Lemont was set to close out the regular season with nonconference matchups against Belleville East at the Stone City Jamboree on Saturday and Montini on Monday.

REALTOR’S UNSELFISH ACT ACKNOWLEDGED The April 18th rain storm did unbelievable damage to Perma-Seal’s Downers Grove office. An enormous number of people have been

affected by this devastating situation. Many volunteers and thoughtful residents came to the aid of fellow neighbors and businesses affected by this horrific storm. Platinum Partners Realtors is proud of the kindness shown by one of their agents, Patty Wardlow. Managing broker, Arlene Urban, received an email from Perma-Seal acknowledging Patty’s thoughtfulness and generosity. She brought out dozens of pizzas to help feed their team while they were diligently working at cleaning up and still assisting distressed customers. Mrs. Urban also learned that Patty was bringing pizzas and helping various Downers Grove residents who were flooded out during the storm. Realtors do more than sell houses, they give back to the communities in which they live and work.
