The second donation of $25,000 comes from Intel and Westmont business Micro Center.

Are You Starting to See Excessive Dog Hair in Your Home? It’s beginning … the annual shedding of the winter coat of your beloved dog. The winter coat that your pet put on for the winter is beginning to release and allow for the summer coat to come in. This can be a minor inconvenience for some, or a downright blizzard of blowing dog hair for some dog owners – depending on the type of breed and coat. We have an awesome solution for you!!!!! We will give your dog a full spring cleaning treatment using the Furminator De-Shedding system.

This system is specially designed to dramatically reduce the amount of hair you will have in your home. This de-shedding system is a multistep process that uses special de-shedding tools, shampoo, conditioner and drying. This service normally costs anywhere from $20 to $40 extra on top of a regular grooming. But for this ad only, we are offering this service with a regular grooming for FREE. Just to show you the math, a regular grooming runs about $43, and with the de-shedding system, add another $20. This is a total cost of $63 in value. You get it for FREE. What are the catches? Only one… We are offering this to new customers to Belle Aire Grooming. If you have not had the chance to try our services, we would like the

opportunity to win you over with this fantastic offer. If you are new to us, give us a call at

630-969-3145 to book your appointment. We have given away over 65 free groomings in the last three months and people are just loving what we’re doing for them. The first grooming is on us, so give us a call today because we really do book up fast because we only have a couple of spots open a day. Finally, hopefully, we have seen the end of old man winter and we can start enjoying a new spring. I wish you and your pet all the best this new spring time. Warmest regards, John O’ Driscoll Owner Belle Aire Kennels & Grooming.

Ask Dr. Webster

Q: What’s the difference between bonding and laminates?

A: Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin to teeth to improve their appearance. The procedure is done in one visit to the dental office. Laminates, or veneers, are thin shells of porcelain that are made outside the dentist’s office at a laboratory. They are made from an impression of your teeth your dentist makes in the office. The tooth-colored laminate is applied at a subsequent appointment. Either procedure is designed to correct broken or stained teeth and to close gaps between teeth. Bonding generally involves etching the tooth surface with an acid so as to create ridges. The ridges will hold an applied composite substance better than smooth enamel would. Over time, the adhesive used in bonding can become discolored. And bonded teeth may not hold up under heavy chewing. One advantage to bonding is that the material can be tinted to match the color of virtually any natural tooth enamel. Laminates are more expensive than bonding. They usually provide, however, a more reliable aesthetic outcome. By some estimates, a bonding procedure will last two to five years, while laminates could last up to 15 years. Talk with your dentist about whether you’re a candidate for bonding or laminates, and about which would be best for you.

WESTMONT – Police Chief Thomas Mulhearn and fellow Westmont police officers stood on the roof of the Dunkin’ Donuts on 63rd Street and Cass Avenue on Friday to raise money for Special Olympics Illinois. The “Cop on Top” fundraiser was from 6 a.m. to noon Friday at Dunkin’ Donuts, at 19 W. 63rd St., as part of the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. Proceeds go to Special Olympics Illinois.

It was the 11th anniversary of the “Cop on Top” fundraiser throughout Illinois, and the most successful year for the Westmont Police Department, Mulhearn said. “We raised over $1,600, and that is the most we’ve ever raised. This is for a great cause, and I’m proud to be associated with such a worthwhile effort,” he said. There are 27,000 Special Olympics athletes in Illinois who are benefiting from the statewide police fundraiser.

WESTMONT – A local brewer hopes to tap into the booming craft beer business. Tim Hoerman, a Westmont resident since 2004, is bringing his Urban Legend brand beers up a level with a microbrewery he hopes to open by July 1. He is backed by a group of six investors, has secured a liquor license from the village of Westmont and is in the midst of converting a warehouse in an industrial area northwest of 63rd Street and Cass Avenue into a brewery on top of a tasting area. For Hoerman, an attorney who has been brewing beers and winning awards for it for the past four years, the business idea was a no-brainer. “I think the entire suburban area is under-served as far as microbreweries are concerned,” he said at the warehouse at 1115 Zygmunt Ryan Terrell – rterrell@shawmedia.com Circle, where large fermentTim Hoerman of Westmont (from left), Jason Hancock of Westmont ing tanks were being installed and Doug Stoffer of Hinsdale pose for a photo last week inside the late last week. “A lot of peoWestmont microbrewery. Hancock and Stoffer are investors in the new ple in the area are becoming familiar with craft beers, and business and help out in the brewing process.

we really think they will be receptive to this idea.” The idea is to brew and bottle beer inside the warehouse, but also host private tasting parties of up to 30 people with the fermenting tanks and other brewing equipment serving as a backdrop. Food will not be served. Hoerman was issued a special Class 20 liquor license for the business,

• BREW Unique ideas give business own identity WESTMONT – Urban Legend Brewing Company will host a tasting table that will be open Thursday through Sunday. How will beer-lovers know the table is open for serving, or what beers have been brewed? Hoerman will fly a flag visible from 63rd Street. “White will mean a Pilsner is ready, orange an IPA, red an Amber, brown a Porter and more,” he said. Then there’s the “Petainer,” described by Hoerman

as a disposable “to-go” keg that’s economical, disposable and environment-friendly. “It holds about one-sixth of a typical barrel of beer, but it doesn’t require a deposit because it’s made of plastic and is disposable. It’s also lightweight and you can see when it’s empty,” he said. “It’s really ideal for family parties or tailgates.” Party planners can pick up the Petainers at Urban Legend, and re-fill them inside the brewery.

As for the name, Hoerman chose it because “it lends itself to the craft brewery industry.” “A lot of our beer names are associated with urban

And, the other part of the idea is that we want to create beers that become legendary.” Picking the town he calls home to build his micro brewery was a no-brainer, as well. “This is home for us,” he said. “We feel it’s a way to give back to our community. This is where we want to create a name and identity for

ourselves. The bottle labels will all say ‘Brewed in Westmont.’” For now, Hoerman is keeping his full-time gig as an attorney, but if everything goes as he hopes, the brewery eventually will be his full-time responsibility. “It’s every home brewer’s dream, something like this,” he said.

weather Thursday. “She loved life,” he said Friday afternoon at the family’s Downers Grove home, where cars lined the block. Jennie was found on the ground east of the sled hill at O’Brien Park, 6909 S. Dunham Road, unconscious and not breathing, about 5:21 p.m., Downers Grove police said. She was pronounced dead on the scene at 5:45 p.m., police said. On Sunday, during a graduation ceremony in the Benet Academy gym, more than 300 graduating seniors, along with Benet faculty and Jennie’s former band mates, wore ribbons of purple and black – Jennie’s favorite colors – in her honor. Another graduating senior, Anna Bourjaily, organized the ribbons in Jennie’s memory. “I know she was with us in spirit,” she said. “She wouldn’t have wanted us to be sad; she would have wanted us to celebrate.” Jennie was laid to rest Tuesday. A funeral Mass was at St. Scholastica Church, where she was active in the parish.

LISLE – When the Benet Academy Class of 2013 sang its alma mater at commencement Sunday, one voice was missing. The voice of Jennie Dizon – a musician, singer, friend, sister and daughter – also Jennie Dizon was missing earlier that morning during the senior Mass, where a chair was left empty in her honor. The 17-year-old was set to graduate with her class Sunday until she was struck and killed by lightning Thursday in O’Brien Park in Downers Grove. This summer, she was going to join the Benet music department on a performance trip to Central Europe. In the fall, she planned to study theater production at the University of Cincinnati’s Conservatory of Music. Her parents, Eric and Mari-

etta Dizon, and Jennie’s two siblings, Michael and Emmeline, accepted her diploma in her place at the beginning of Sunday’s graduation ceremony. It was an emotional moment for those who knew Jennie. “I was fighting back tears,” said Jon De Asis, 18, a friend of Jennie’s for more than 12 years. “But I knew she was watching us, and it helped a lot.” The hill in O’Brien Park where Jennie was killed Thursday was a favorite spot for her and her friends, De Asis said. It’s a tough place to return to, but it also contains good memories. “She loved hanging out there,” he said. “She loved sitting there and talking to her friends. I went back there the day after [she died]. I sat there for a while and thought about her. I’ll always think of her when I go there; it’s a beautiful place. Her father, Eric, said Jennie likely was writing in her journal in the park, which is about a block from the family’s home, when there was a break in the

Better grammar

Reporter | Progress • mysuburbanlife.com • Wednesday, June 5, 2013 • SD

I read with interest the discussion on the use of “my friend and me or I.” Actually both are correct. If used as the subject, as in, “My friend and I went to the store,” the “I” is correct. However, if used in the objective, as in, “He invited my friend and me,” “me” is correct. Always using “I” after “and” is equally bad grammar. Having taught college English, I feel confident that this information is correct.

Blacktop before bricks

WMP/DGR

I’d like to comment on the conditions of the roads in Downers Grove. Our blacktop roads are in terrible shape. I wonder how they designate what roads get fixed. All the time and money spent to replace brick streets in town just sounded like something that could

have been put on the back burner until the many more blacktop streets could’ve been repaired with that money.

Go ahead and squirm All you people on government pension plans sit there and squirm. All you people were rejoicing when the politicians gave you those good pensions.

Now you want all of us poor people to pay for yours. Go bankrupt.

How much more is going to go to the schools? Enough is enough. Let the students learn math and English and how to give change. That’s more important than giving each kid an iPad on my tax dollars.

WESTMONT – The village of Westmont and Community Unit School District 201 have struck an agreement that will lighten the impact of the central business tax increment financing district on Westmont schools. According to District 201, the agreement will provide the district with payments to offset the loss of property tax revenue as a result of the TIF. The payments will fund $15 million in capital improvements at Manning Elementary School, which sits in the proposed TIF district. “This is a win-win situation for Westmont,” District 201 school board President Marie Charlton wrote in a news release. “Manning is one of our oldest buildings and needs many updates, with a specific focus on safety issues for our students.” The TIF district will be discussed during a public hearing at 7 p.m. Monday at Westmont Village Hall. The agreement also gives District 201 a share of the sales tax from new businesses that

move into Westmont as a result of the TIF district. “We are happy to receive this sales tax money, as it can be used for operational expenses at all the schools which will help us to continue the unique programming that we offer,” Charlton said. “This process has been a great example of how all facets of community can work together to achieve a great outcome,” Mayor Ron Gunter said. A TIF district is an economic development tool that helps municipalities address areas of distress by funneling tax dollars into a blighted or undeveloped area. District 201 joined Maercker School District 60 in negotiating with the village for a lighter impact to schools. In February, the village announced it had scaled down the TIF district with borders of north of 63rd Street, south of 61st Street, east of Williams Street and west of Cass Avenue. Westmont officials hope the TIF spurs redevelopment in the area of 63rd Street and Cass Avenue, an area referred to as the Southwest Westmont Business District.

On behalf of the Westmont Village Board, we want you to know that we are eager to work with you to make our village the very best it can be. Working together, we will succeed. Here are several upcoming events to do that:

Coffee with the mayor

COMMUNITY VOICE Ron Gunter

On Saturday, we will have our first Coffee with the Mayor event. We invite everyone to come down, buy a cup of coffee and join us for an open discussion about our community. I will have a few items that I will seek input on, but there also will be the opportunity for you to offer ideas and introduce other topics. Our goal is to do this once a month at various locations throughout Westmont. The event will be at 10 a.m. at Brewed Awakening, 19 W. Quincy St.

Stormwater management ad hoc committee We recently held a special community meeting to discuss the ongoing concerns regarding extreme weather and resulting flood issues that not only affect our citizens, but tens of thousands of people throughout DuPage County and the Chicagoland area. At this time, I am calling for the creation of a special ad hoc community comprised of residents, businesses, elected officials and staff that will ambitiously address this issue. We will research data regarding priority concerns, review and make recommendations and ultimately discuss funding options. Any person interested in being considered for this important committee can sign up on our website at www.westmont.illinois.gov. I strongly believe that if we work as a team to find solutions, we will achieve our goals. Please feel free to contact me at rgunter@westmont. il.gov or at 630-981-6201 regarding any idea, question or concern. I look forward to working with you.

Grass and weeds on the property of a former Arby’s location have been left uncut, making for an eyesore along Ogden Avenue just west of Cass Avenue.

A former Arby’s location at 180 W. Ogden Ave. in Westmont, just west of Cass Avenue, was looking quite shoddy last week. Grass and weeds were overgrown on the property, creating an eyesore. By Monday morning, the property had been cleaned up, but it’s important for its owners to maintain its appearance along the Westmont Auto Mile. The village of Westmont has combined its popular Cruisin’ Nights and Fresh Market, and put a cherry on top. Live music and a bevy of children’s activities will accompany both for the Westmont Community Street Fair. The new fair will kick off tomorrow and continues every Thursday from June through August (not including July 5) from 4 to 9 p.m. along Cass Avenue from Irving Street to Burlington Avenue.

DOWNERS GROVE – When a contestant misses a word he or she already knows in a spelling bee, it usually goes about the same way. It’s like the eight stages of grief condensed to a few facial expressions: First, the shocked look, followed by a incredulous squint and then acceptance as the judge provides the correct spelling. For one contestant at the senior spelling bee Thursday at Oak Trace senior living center in Downers Grove, the word was “lavender,” which she mistakenly spelled with an “a” before the “r.” The cycle of facial expressions followed, then a frustrated exclamation of “I knew it, too!” Twelve contestants, ages ranging from the 50s to the 80s, spelled words such as “abstemious,” “extortionate” and 100 others at the competition, organized by the Downers Grove Public Library and Oak Trace. The first- and second-place winners, Eric Easterberg and Annette Hillman, respectively, earned restaurant gift certificates and a place at a regional competition. The winners of that contest will go to the state Senior Spelling Bee in August at the State Fair in Springfield. Easterberg, 54, of Naperville said he participated in a similar contest there in 2010 and eventually won every stage, including the state contest. He had not competed since and was looking to this year when the host of the Naperville contest pointed him toward Downers Grove. By the 17th round Thursday, the other 10 contestants had bowed out, and it was down to him and Hillman. The two traded spellings back and forth for six rounds, parsing “fescue” and “follicle,” “gumption” and “gymkhana,” which Hillman defined as an equestrian sport. Hillman was bested by “harpsichord,” forgetting the “s.” Easterberg correctly spelled it, then recited “hibiscus” for the win. Easterberg said he read a book of commonly misspelled words before the regional

competition three years ago, but other than that hasn’t done any preparation. For some contestants in a senior competition, correctly hearing the words can cause more consternation than remembering the correct spelling. Judy La Fave, a longtime Downers Grove resident living in Oak Trace, nailed “typography” after a staff member walked closer to repeat the word. La Fave later left in the middle of the pack after surviving several rounds. “Part of memory is an imprint for a lot of things,” she said. “It’s stuck in your head one way or another.”

Dear Friend, Confessions are diicult, but I wanted to set the record straight. In order to do this, I irst need to give you some history. A few years ago, I met Kelly. She had been sufering from debilitating cluster headaches, a severe form of migraines that occur daily. She was failing out of school and had become depressed due to her feeling of helplessness and unrelenting pain. She sought treatment from neurologists, ophthalmologists, dentists, ENT’s, and was only ofered an array of drugs with awful side efects. Finally, she was referred to a chiropractor. Within a week, her headaches were gone. She has been free of these clusters for years now, and illed with regret only that she had not gone to this doctor sooner. his is where I come in; I helped Kelly with these headaches, as I have helped many patients with various health problems. Here’s what some of them have said: “My hearing was nearly gone...He gave me my hearing back!” (G.V.)

“I could barely run on my knee...I am working on my qualifying time for the Olympics...” (T.H.) “My Back pain kept me from taking care of my family...I’ve recently returned to work.” (R.S.)

Several times a day my patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take credit. My confession is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a spe-

ciic spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. We get tremendous results. It’s as simple as that. Although Chiropractic faces many skeptics, the studies speak for themselves, like the Virginia study that showed 99% of patients who saw a Chiropractor were satisied with the results. Studies show that chiropractic can double your immune capacity naturally, which keeps you from getting sick, saving money on medical bills. here is no reason for you to sufer even one more day, so I am now ofering the initial Exam, Consultation and X-Rays for only $20. his is a $250 value so I can only accept a limited number of patients. My goal is to help as many people heal themselves as possible. Call me at 630-318-6865 and see if I can help you. Main Street Chiropractic is located at 5157 Main St., Suite 200 in Downers Grove. I look forward to adding your success story to the list! Dr. Mike DeCubellis, D. C.

DOWNERS GROVE – When NFL player and Lemont native Coby Fleener buys his first home, he won’t have to look further than Downers Grove for someone to design its interior. His mother, Michelle Nagel Fleener, opened her interior design business, Cobri Decor, at 933 Curtiss St. last month in Downers Grove. Nagel Fleener had operated the business from her home in Lemont until deciding this winter she wanted a storefront for the visibility and exposure. The space also allows her to show clients furniture and other items in person, rather than from a catalog. She said she thought of the name for the store – Cobri, a combination of her two children’s first names, Coby and Briana – when they were little. “I thought, ‘One day, I’ll have a store,’ and I was trying to come up with names,” she said. “I’ve always remembered it ever since. As a single mom, raising them, it was always important to have them in my life. It was a little tribute to them.” Visitors can see several vignettes collecting pieces of furniture and other decorations to show how a room might be

There also is an art collection in the rear. She said picking the wall art for a home is her favorite part of the job, but the most important thing is to get to know the client and who he or she is. “It just has to work right with that person,” she said. “There are all different personalities. But you really have to figure out and study that person, or that couple or that family. Even if they say one thing, they may not [really want it]. You have to understand where they’re coming from. “In the end, they’re the ones living there, and they need to be happy. If I don’t read them well, nobody is going to be happy.” Nagel Fleener describes her own style as eclectic, a mixture of contemporary and traditional. Cobri Decor offers commercial and residential services, from full house or room designs to paint consultations. The business can be reached at 773-609-1082.

Downers Grove, Darien VFW posts team up for celebration By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com DARIEN – To a veteran, the American flag always will mean more than 50 stars and 13 stripes. It symbolizes what they fought for, the brothers in arms they lost and the sacrifice they made for their country. On May 27, the Downers Grove VFW and Darien Memorial VFW posts joined together with local Boy Scouts, including those from Troop 97, to install 1,400 flags at Clarendon Hills Cemetery in Darien. “Those kids were the ones that hustled more than us old men,” World War II veteran Ed Oldis said. Oldis said the VFW posts have held the event for at least 15 years. The VFWs also add flags to the total each year to symbolize the veterans who have died since the last Memorial Day. A service to honor veterans also was May 27. “There was a nice crowd at both places,” Oldis said. “We veterans sometimes need a little recognition.”

LISLE – Two- and fourlegged walkers and runners will cross the finish line to benefit shelter animals at an upcoming Lisle event. The Third annual Paws for Life 5K: Charlene’s Run will be Sunday at Lisle Senior High School, 1800 Short St., Lisle. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the West Suburban Humane Society in Downers Grove. “It’s more of a casual, fun atmosphere than other 5Ks,” said Evan Kouimelis, one of the event co-founders. Residents and nonresidents can participate in the Men’s and Women’s Competitive Race at 7 a.m., which is for ages 14 and older and prohibits pets, or the Pet-Friend-

ly Noncompetitive Fun Run/ Walk at 8 a.m., which is for all ages and encourages participants to bring their dog. Kouimelis, a former Lisle resident, said he and several of his family members coordinate the 5K each year, but his sister, Faye Kouimelis, came up with the idea for the event after their mother, Charlene Lambertsen, died Jan. 26, 2010. “It’s kind of a way to keep her memory alive,” he said. “She had a passion for animals.” Lambertsen volunteered at the West Suburban Humane Society, fostered cats and dogs until they were ready for adoption and began her own pet-sitting company. Kouimelis said she encouraged individuals to adopt pets.

Kouimelis said race participants will receive a T-shirt and goody bag. Top men and women runners of the competitive race will receive gift cards, and winners of each age group of the competitive race will receive a medal. Registration fees are $35 for the competitive race, and $25 for the fun run/walk and $5 for military, firemen and police officers for either race. Registration is available online at www.pawsforlife5k.com or the day of the event from 6:15 to 6:45 a.m. for the competitive race and nonstop for the fun run/ walk. For information, email pawsforlife5k@gmail.com or call Faye Kouimelis at 630292-4757.

Protesters gather at Bolingbrook HS, demand stronger stance against bullying By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com BOLINGBROOK – Five protesters gathered near Bolingbrook High School Monday, supporting what they said was a thwarted student-led anti-bullying walkout May 29. From 9 to 11 a.m. Monday, the Rev. Patrick Green of Life Bridge Church in Lockport led the protest and was joined by fellow congregation members Amy Studer and Jacob Weinert, as well Karen Thompson and her daughter, who she says is home-schooled because of bullying issues at past schools. Holding anti-bullying signs, they lined up across the street from the high school campus, soliciting honks from drivers and speaking to Bolingbrook residents who passed by. Each protester shared a story about how his or her life has been touched by bul-

lying and voiced support for Bolingbrook High School junior Cheyenne Hensley, who had planned an anti-bullying student walkout May 29 at BHS. Hensley – whose friend, Kenyatta Parker, committed suicide March 12 – organized the 1 p.m. walkout in correlation with National Stand Up & Walk Out Against Bullying Day. About 30 Bolingbrook High School students planned to leave class, go to the cafeteria and stand in solidarity for a half-hour. Their walkout was canceled when Bolingbrook High School Principal Michael White said any student involved in the walkout would be suspended, Hensley said. Valley View School District Community Relations Director Larry Randa said a walkout during school hours would impede classes and cause a security issue. He said the district provides anti-bullying resourc-

es through its website, and that teachers, counselors and administrators work to stop bullying. Hensley is determined to stop bullying at the high school. The junior recently composed letters to local media outlets describing “pervasive bullying” at the school, coordinated Facebook and Twitter campaigns to raise awareness and – with the help of four other Valley View students – organized an anti-bullying panel during a May 7 episode of local Bolingbrook television show “Bridging the Gap.” Hensley said bullying remains personal and something she never will forget. “I don’t want another one of my friends or classmates to kill him or herself like Kenyatta did,” she said. “I am so thankful for the people that have been helping me, and I promise to do everything in my power to stop this bullying epidemic.”

Restaurant reviews

Autre Monde hits all the right notes with flavor, service BERWYN – Much like the food it serves, Autre Monde Cafe & Spirits is simple, elegant and more than meets the eye. The much-lauded fine dining establishment almost seems out of place in Berwyn. For a meal like this, about your only other option is to head into the city. Still, like everything in Berwyn, Autre Monde feels like a neighborhood joint. My dining companion and I arrived for our evening reservation on a recent Saturday night and were seated right away. We were given glasses of water and just enough time to consider the restaurant’s cocktail menu before our server arrived to see what we were in the mood for. She began by asking if this was our first time at Autre Monde, and since it was, she described the food as Mediterranean-inspired and focused on small plates ideal for sharing. We began by ordering cocktails: I requested a Sazerac, and my companion ordered a blood orange gimlet. Both arrived promptly and were as carefully constructed as the meal to follow. When you are in for a special dinner for two, it’s nice not to be rushed as you enjoy the experience. At no time did we feel such pressure. In fact, one of the most enjoyable parts of our evening was the service. Aside from clearing our plates after each course and our server checking in to see what we would like to order next, we were largely undisturbed. The water bottle was left at the table for us to serve ourselves, which I personally enjoy, because you won’t be interrupted each time your water glass dips below the half-full mark. We began our meal with the Bar Board: deviled eggs, charcuterie and pickled asparagus, which was fantastic. Although it featured simple items, the flavor was there in full. We also ordered the crispy shrimp fritters a la planxa, which was good. Our second course was a gnocchi with housemade duck sausage, oven-dried cherry tomatoes, Parmigiano and crispy

Chocolate hazelnut pot de creme is a rich, decadent dessert treat. bread crumbs. Without being heavy, the entree was packed with a subtle yet rich flavor, and the duck sausage was some of the best I’ve had the pleasure of tasting. Feeling filled but not quite full, we ordered the night’s

special, which consisted of rockfish a la planxa set upon a bed of fava beans, peas and house-cured bacon, then topped with a dollop of lemon parsley butter. The fish was perfectly cooked, and the plating was beautiful. The fish and bacon

were delightful together, and soon, the peas were glazed with the buttery topping too. It was a wonderful final selection, and I again would order whatever is on special in the future based on this dish. Servers typically know what the best items in any restaurant are. This being

our mantra, we asked ours to bring out whatever she would recommend as our dessert. What arrived was not quite custard and not quite pudding, but chocolate hazelnut pot de creme. Rich, velvety smooth and utterly decadent are the only ways to describe the dessert. We enjoyed a cup of Bridgeport coffee with ours and stayed as the restaurant slowed to close. This Berwyn gem gets high marks in all areas, and I can’t wait to return for its much-discussed brunch. In fact, I’m hungry again just thinking about it.

The Downers Grove South boys volleyball team raises its state championship trophy Saturday in Hoffman Estates.

‘New standard’ By JASON ROSSI

On the web

jrossi@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – It turns out the fifth time also can be the charm. Downers Grove South’s boys volleyball team didn’t take top honors in any of the four regular-season tournaments it played in, but the Mustangs brought home the top prize in the most important tourney of the year. With Saturday’s 25-18, 25-20 win over Lincoln-Way

North, the Mustangs brought home the 2013 state title, wrapping up a 31-10 season with the first championship in program history. “That’s something I was

thinking about,” senior Austin Adank said at a special ceremony Sunday at Downers South to honor the championship team. “This is the new standard now. We left our mark in school history as well. Our only goal the whole season was to get there, and we accomplished it.” The euphoria of Saturday’s fantastic finish had yet to wear off more than 12 hours later. “It feels fantastic. It’s finally starting to set in,” senior David DeMarco said. “At first it didn’t

feel like how I always thought a state championship would, but now it’s kind of setting in.” “This is unbelievable,” senior Chris Widdel said. “Words can’t describe what happened these past few days. I was hanging out with Nick [Timreck] last night and we were just smiling. We couldn’t do anything else.” There were teams with better records (four of the other state quarterfinal teams had better records) than the Mustangs’ 28-10 mark entering the

state quarterfinals, but none had the better team. “Their effort and commitment from freshman year, playing club five months out of the year, that extra time and commitment level to improve their skill set, and their chemistry and commitment to their teammates, that puts them above the rest,” South coach Kurt Steuer said. Boys volleyball tends to have a looser atmosphere

‘They never quit’ By JASON ROSSI

jrossi@shawmedia.com ROSEMONT – Downers Grove South’s softball team wouldn’t have it any other way. The team that scratched, clawed and battled to three upset victories (at least in terms of seeding) in the playoffs battled Monday against St. Charles East. The only difference was the Mustangs couldn’t pull out the win this time, falling, 6-3, to the Saints in a Class 4A supersectional game at The Ballpark in Rosemont, home of the Chicago Bandits. “Everybody just really wanted to win today,” South freshman pitcher Caroline Hedgcock said. “Everybody played their hearts out, and we left everything out on the field.” Down 4-0 entering the bot-

Melissa Orton led off with a walk and went to third when Jess Andree doubled behind her. Orton scored on Caitlyn Daly’s groundout, and Andree came across on Car-

oline Hedgcock’s groundout as South halved the deficit to 4-2. Even when East added two more runs in the top of the seventh, South made things interesting. Kaley Smith scored on an error, and the

Mustangs brought the tying run to the plate with two outs. In the end, however, the Mustangs couldn’t overcome an error that led to four unearned East (30-7) runs in the third or leaving runners stranded at third base on four separate occasions. When they were looking for the key hit, they just couldn’t touch East pitcher Haley Beno. “We thought we were going to get on her, but we nev-

er strung it together like we should have,” junior Jess Andree said. “It just didn’t work the way we wanted it to.” South also had a runner, who would have been safe at third, get tagged out after sliding past the bag in the third, and a run kept off the board when an overthrow from the East outfield hit the home plate umpire standing in foul territory and bounced back toward home plate. “There were a couple opportunities we had that we squandered, but this team always fights back,” South coach Ron Havelka said. “They never quit. They didn’t quit against Naperville Central. Downers North we were down to our last four outs with [Elaine] Heflin on the mound, and we pulled that one out. I’m real proud of them. There’s nothing to be ashamed of.”

Back-to-back homers launch South to sectional title over North By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com NAPERVILLE – First came the bloop, then came the bombs. Kristen Bialek blooped a single that landed between three defenders, then Melissa Orton and Jess Andree followed with back-to-back home runs as Downers Grove South’s softball team topped Downers Grove North, 3-2, Saturday to capture the title at the Class 4A Neuqua Valley sectional. It continued the miracle postseason run for the Mustangs (22-10). Seeded No. 9 in the sectional, they topped No. 8 Naperville North and No. 1 Naperville Central to win the regional, then took out No. 3 North to take home the sectional. “We started a little slow in the season, but then we picked it up and once we won that first region-

al game we got a little momentum and I think we started to believe that we could do something because we beat such an outstanding team in Naperville Central,” Downers South coach Ron Havelka said. That belief kept the Mustangs afloat even when they were down 1-0 to North (26-9) and standout pitcher Elaine Heflin. Hannah Mrazek launched a solo home run in the fifth to break a scoreless tie and put the Trojans ahead. The lead didn’t last. Bialek’s bloop started a two-out rally that saw South tally three of its four hits in the game all in a row. “When they scored their first run we were like, ‘All right, we have to come back with something,’” Andree said. “We weren’t looking for the big hits, but then it ended up being all of three hits that scored our three runs. It’s incredible.”

“A little bloop, the ball lands in the infield, and then boom,” North coach Mark Magro said. “Give credit to them. Two home runs in a row.” North added a run in the bottom of the sixth, but had two runners thrown out at home early in the game and couldn’t muster the big hit when they needed it. The Trojans left nine runners on base and were retired in order in the bottom of the seventh. It signaled the end of one of the Trojans’ best seasons in recent memory. They captured their fourth straight West Suburban Silver title and advanced to the sectional title game for the first time in Magro’s eight-year tenure. “One more would have been nice,” the coach said. “We were looking forward to one more and being in the final eight, but what are you going to do?”

They knew how to blow off steam away from the court, but they also knew how to take care of business on it. “If you saw one of our practices, these guys were goofing around, but in between the lines they knew how to take care of business,” Steuer said. “At state, we go into a small gym to stretch, prepare and do all that. Austin put on his iPod, and that gym was rocking. Guys were dancing. Looking around you wouldn’t think they were focused and ready to go, but that’s our identity. They’re goofy, but they knew how to play when it came to game time.” After playing three-set

The Mustangs defeated St. Charles North, 25-18, 25-21, to earn their spot in the state championship match, which put the final stamp on a longtime goal. Winning state was something the 2013 squad discussed as far back as summer camp in 2012. It was something Timreck and his fellow seniors — Adank, Widdel, DeMarco, John Hanek and Steve Kryk — had thought about longer than that. “This is something I’ve wanted to do since freshman year, and we finally did it my senior year,” Timreck said. “What a way to go out. It’s the greatest feeling in the world. This is something you always want to do –j go to state and come out on top.”

was the only run the Trojans (22-12) could muster, and they had just one more baserunner the rest of the game. “The wind was a huge factor,” Zabloudil said. “If the ball got up, they were going to pound it deep, and you saw that today. It was a matter of they hit and we didn’t get the chances.”

North tops South Talk about an exclamation point.

David Henson blasted a three-run home run as part of a five-run inning as Downers Grove North’s baseball team topped crosstown-foe Downers Grove South, 8-0, on May 29 in a semifinal game of the Class 4A Neuqua Valley sectional. The Mustangs mustered four hits but couldn’t push a run across. They had the bases loaded with no out in the bottom of the second but couldn’t score. North responded with three runs in the top of the third with RBIs from Joe Provenzano and Southard. Jack Goergen plated another run on an error. Joe Becht went 2-for-4 and Alex Galik and Matt Zinnecker each had a hit for South, which finished the year 30-7.

In their words: By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com

What made this team a state championship team? “I’d say it’s all the guys on the team, one through 15. We had solid hitting with Nick [Timreck], Will [Tischler], John [Hanek], Mike [Schmitt], everybody. Setters, Jordan Pawlicki was great this year. Solid defense with me, David DeMarco, Tyler Zowaski, and our serving, it was all-around perfect.”

– Steve Kryk

“I think our character. We’re all different personalities, but we were an all-around balanced group of guys. We went to school with each other, we hung out all the time – we had really good team chemistry.”

– Chris Widdel “The way we could come together. If we had a bad point or if something happened, we could always come together and sideout and just keep going. It was something special.”

– John Hanek

“I think our resiliency. If things went wrong, we kept bouncing back. We had short-term memory. If one bad thing would happen, we’d forget about it and just move on.”

“I think how close we were this year. We always hung out with each other. We were so close. We all had a lot of stuff going on, but we were always there for each other.”

NAPERVILLE – Matt Zabloudil had a simple plan for his first at-bat of Saturday’s sectional championship baseball game against Neuqua Valley. “I went up there, I was like, ‘I’m going to help out my pitcher,’” the Downers Grove North senior said. Zabloudil helped out in a big way with a three-run home run in the second inning that gave the Trojans a 3-1 lead. However, the momentum would not last as the Trojans fell, 12-4, to the host Wildcats. “I knew that the wind was blowing out, but I was just looking to put the ball in play,” Zabloudil said. “We had a guy on third base and my main objective was to drive him in. I just got lucky with that wind blowing out. I wasn’t thinking home run, just making contact.” North took a 4-1 lead in the third inning on Troy Southard’s sacrifice fly. Neuqua tied the game at 4-4 with three runs in the bottom of the third, took the lead for good

ALL-AREA MVP: CASEY MAY

Going for goal

Miami-Ohio recruit switches from defense to forward to lead Red Devils to state finals

By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – Casey May is a coach’s dream. The recent Hinsdale Central graduate is smart, speedy and a talented soccer player. “She’s a soccer player,” Central coach Michael Smith said. “There are some girls who play soccer on the weekends because that’s a thing to do, but she is someone who is a student of the game.” May got even more inside the game this season. Headed to Miami (Ohio) to continue her soccer career next season, May will play along the back line for the RedHawks. This season with the Red Devils, she switched from defender to forward and helped the Red Devils to their first state finals appearance since 2009. “It’s definitely a change in mindset,” May said. “When you’re a back, you’re more defensive minded and the ball comes to you a lot. As an attacking player, you need to have momentum to create opportunities. It definitely helps with versatility knowing both aspects of the game.” In Central’s 3-0 sectional semifinal win against Benet, May scored the first and third goals and assisted on the other score. She found the back of the net 38 seconds into the game when the Red Devils topped Lyons Township, 3-1, for the sectional title, and she added another goal later in the game. And when Central topped Sandburg for the supersectional crown and the berth in the state finals, May scored the game’s opening goal just over five minutes into the game. May’s penchant for scoring during the postseason was even more impressive considering her position switch, but it was something she was building toward since she scored her first goal of the season March 28 against Elk Grove. “It wasn’t just some goal where I shot it and it was a lucky goal,” she said. “It was one that was created off of something I did as a forward and that’s really when I felt like, OK, I can really play this position. That was like my aha moment.” Just as important as May’s ability to put the ball in the back of the net was her role as a leader for on a team that was nearly evenly split between seniors (nine on the team) and underclassmen (six freshmen and sophomores). “She’s a team player. She’s a player who I could ask to play any position, and there’s no moaning or complaining. She just wants to play,” Smith said. “She’s a leader with her poise and her humility. She’ll speak and direct and organize the girls, but she lets her play speak volumes.”

A first-team all-state selection and West Suburban Silver all-conference pick, May tallied 16 goals and six assists in a season in which she transitioned from defense to forward. She scored five goals in three consecutive playoff games and helped the Red Devils to an undefeated WSS title.

Benet: Katie Baumann, Emma Hlavin, Amanda Kaiser Bolingbrook: Caroline Harvey, Andrea Sanchez

Michelle Morefield School: Benet Year: Junior Morefield made things move in Benet’s midfield this season, and with her guidance the Redwings enjoyed separate five- and seven-game winning streaks as they went on to win a regional title. She earned East Suburban Catholic all-conference and all-sectional honors.

Vanessa Niestrom School: Hinsdale South Year: Senior Only three times did this consistent goalie allow more than two goals this season and seven times she won via shutout, including 5-0 in a regional semifinal game. Niestrom was an all-sectional selection.

Meghan Schick

Nikia Smith

Skyler Tomko

School: Hinsdale Central Year: Junior

School: Bolingbrook Year: Junior

School: Lisle Year: Senior

When the Raiders lost their striker to an ACL injury early in the season, it placed even more importance on the defense, and this speedy Northwestern-bound defender delivered. Bolingbrook posted 10 shutouts and yielded only 22 goals. Smith was named SouthWest Suburban all-conference and all-sectional.

There is no shortage of accolades to describe Tomko: Four-time Interstate Eight all-conference, three-year captain, two-time team MVP and the second leading scorer in program history. The forward led the team with 26 goals and seven assists this season.

In her midfield role, Schick provided a crucial link between Central’s solid back line and talented forwards all season long. Schick finished with nine goals and seven assists, and was a key piece of the Red Devils’ trip to the state tournament (she scored their goal in the state championship game) and was named all-sectional.

ANGELS FROM THE ATTIC

What’s a camping trip without a fire? If you want to build a fire, make sure you have an adult do most of the work. But you can help make sure your fire is safe by following these rules: Use the designated fire pits, don’t burn fires on dry days, make sure the fire is far away from any trees or shrubs, and make sure the fire is totally extinguished (Totally! Not hot, not smoking, no orange embers … ) before you go to sleep or leave the campsite.

2. gimme s’more! Camping is fun - until you get hungry. Make sure to bring some classic campfire snacks,

I

t’s almost summer - time to reach for the bug spray and sunscreen and get out into the great outdoors! Whether you’re fishing, camping, hiking, swimming, canoeing or going to the beach, now is the perfect time to learn about nature, and get the wind in your hair and the sun on your shoulders. Five tips to have the best camping trip ever this year.

like hot dogs, s’mores and trail mix. But beware of the wildlife: Don’t knowingly feed your food to any animals, and make sure to store your food, trash and toothpaste (really) far away from your tent or in your car, in case of unwanted visitors.

Never, ever drink water out of a stream, unless you are using a tested water purification system. It may look clean and cold, but the water might have dangerous bacteria in it.

One of the best ways to have fun at a campsite is to tell scary stories about things that go “bump” in the night. On a new sheet of paper, prepare your best, most ghoulish ghost story to help frighten your fellow campers this year.

3. find your way It’s fun to get away from roads, cars and buildings when you camp or hike, but make sure not to get lost! Always have an adult with you if you are venturing away from the campsite. Make sure to take a flashlight with you if it is dark, bring water and a snack if you are hiking, and keep a compass,

4. don’t drink the water

write a ghost story

5. Leave no trace

map of the area and a friend close by. It’s also a good idea to tell someone who is staying behind where you’re going, and when to expect to see you again.

The No. 1 wilderness rule is to leave no trace. You should leave the wild just as it was when you got there. Stay to designated campsites and trails, don’t take home any animals or vegetation, and remember to leave with everything you brought in, including your trash.
