By RYAN TERRELL email@example.com WESTMONT – The village of Westmont is considering a restaurant tax officials say would put the burden of a budget crunch on nonresidents. Local restaurant owners are concerned the proposed 1.5 percent tax would put them at a disadvantage to surrounding communities that do not impose an eating tax. It also could stunt growth they’ve had since the downturn in the economy, they say. On Thursday, the Westmont Village Board will discuss the proposed tax during a committee of the whole meeting. Westmont restaurant owners are expected to speak out on the proposed tax, which is expected to come to a formal vote during Tuesday’s regular

any procedure, there’s always a better way to do it. Here are some tips suggested by the experts. Think of your mouth as having four equal sections – two on top and two on the bottom– each having an inside and outside surface. Brush each of these sections, inside and outside, one at a time. Start with the back teeth because they’re always the hardest to clean thoroughly. To get at the outside surfaces of the back teeth, open your mouth only slightly. Opening it wide will stretch the cheeks taut against the teeth, obstructing the brush’s movement. Hold your brush at a 45-degree angle to the gums and move it back and forth gently in short strokes. To clean the inside surfaces of front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes. Brush your tongue, too, to remove bacteria and keep your breath fresh. When done brushing, rinse your mouth out with warm water. Brushing your teeth is but one part of a good oral hygiene program. Remember to clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental device. This helps remove food particles and plaque the toothbrush bristles don’t reach. Also, hold back on the snacks between meals. At your next regular visit ask your dentist for more suggestions on how to keep your smile sparkling.

meeting. Village officials say the 1.5 percent tax would bring in $760,000 annually to the village and alleviate an estimated $3 million loss in revenues after
residents repealed home rule status in November. Repealing home rule forced the village to repeal a 2.5 centper-gallon gasoline tax and a one-half percent sales tax hike. Both tax hikes were enacted under home rule authority. Westmont’s administration is recommending a 1.5 percent eating tax, but at least a 1 per-

dialogue” with village officials, and Monday’s hourlong meeting was a testament to that. “The overall sense is [the business owners] are concerned because the last handful of years have been challenging to restaurants due to
the downturn in the economy,” Forssberg said Tuesday. “They were just starting to see that trend reverse itself the last year, year-and-a-half.” Forssberg said any impact of an eating tax may be lessened come July 1, when the village’s half-percent sales tax will be rescinded – moving the sales tax in Westmont from 7.75 percent to 7.25 percent.

DOWNERS GROVE – In 2008, Downers Grove resident Paul Gawley had the best year of business in his career. By December of that year, the work abruptly stopped as the economy grounded to a halt. “Projects that were ready for groundbreaking, nothing happened,” he said. “There was just a freeze in the capital.” A Navy veteran, Gawley runs his own construction project management business. In the slow national economic recovery since 2008, he has been underemployed, he said, and looking for ways to expand his expertise and opportunities. Last month, he completed a new, free course for veterans at the College of DuPage that teaches skills critical to the burgeoning energy-efficiency industry. The course is administered by the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance. Gawley thinks his new certification will be helpful because the construction that
he has seen return has been refurbishment projects in existing buildings – the same kind of buildings that could use electrical and gas efficiency improvements. The program was initially conceived for recently returning vets whose specialized military training doesn’t always lend itself to jobs in the private sector. That has led to an unemployment rate for post-9/11 vets about two points higher than everyone else, Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance Program Director Aimee Skrzekut said. The program was opened to vets such as Gawley who served pre-9/11 because of the turbulent economy. “Being able to provide the technical training and the job placement assistance and being able to connect them to these job resources in an industry that is growing is a win-win for us,” Skrzekut said. She said the program is especially timely because the energy-efficiency industry

– the first of its kind in the nation – is administered by the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance in partnership with grants from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and the Illinois Department of Veterans. The four-month program is not free for nonveterans, although there are $500 grants available to reduce the program cost to $750.

has more jobs than there are qualified applicants. Vets accepted into the program need to have related experience. For example, another veteran in Gawley’s class had been an aircraft electrician in the military. “We didn’t want to bring vets into the program that were not skilled or poised for success,” Skrzekut said. It begins with classroom instruction, and then vets are paired with a mentor to do projects in actual buildings. Gawley’s mentor had him performing energy audits at the DuPage County Complex. With his new skills, Gawley can make recommendations to building engineers and owners about upgrades to HVAC systems, management systems for lighting and good maintenance practices, among other energy-efficiency improvements. “It’s something that’s important, whether you’re in construction of operations or planning,” he said.

Autoimmune condition? Living with an autoimmune disorder can afect every part of your life. It keeps you from enjoying the good things in life… time with your kids, grandkids, activities like goling, biking, yard work and gardening. Did you know that leaky gut syndrome is a precursor to an autoimmune disease? Did you know that your gut makes up 80% of your immune system? An autoimmune disorder is when your immune system attacks your own body. here is NO CURE for autoimmune disorders, but you can calm down the immune response NATURALLY. 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 whole body and the many systems of the body, integrate their relationships, manage the underlying cause and use natural methods to manage autoimmune disorders.
Are you sufering with any of these autoimmune disorders? • Hashimotos hroiditis • Rheumatoid Arthritis • Graves Disease • Multiple Sclerosis • Scleroderma • Sjogren’s Syndrome • Type 1 Diabetes • Myasthenia Gravis • Ankylosing Spondylitis • Perniscious Anemia
• Lupus • ALS • Psoriasis • Vasculitis • Celiac Disease • Crohn’s Disease • Addison’s Disease • Urticaria (Hives) • Eczema • Raynauds
Medications are not always the long term answer. Medications can give you temporary relief but they DO NOT ADDRESS THE UNDERLYING CAUSE of your immune imbalance. All medications have side efects. hese side efects can be more detrimental than the original symptoms sometimes.
Did you know that medications to treat autoimmune conditions can WEAKEN your immune system and lead to infections and immune degenerative conditions including cancer? here is a time to use medications but not before a NATURAL way to manage the underlying imbalance. So how do I help people with autoimmune disorders? I use a combination of speciic NEUROLOGICAL protocols and NUTRITION recommendations… Neuro-Metabolic herapy. Your Brain (nervous System) controls all other systems of the body. It controls your immune system. digestive system, endocrine (hormone) system… so if you have an immune system imbalance or autoimmune condition, evaluating and managing the nervous system is required for optimal improvement.
Your immune system. here are 2 parts to the front line defense of your immune system… TH1 (white blood cells) and TH2 (antibody response). hese 2 parts should work in balance together. But when you are sufering from an autoimmune disorder, one part is out of balance (dominant). his leads to an imbalance in TH3 which in turn leads to an autoimmune response.
Testimonials I was diagnosed with Graves Disease (autoimmune thyroid) three years ago. My endocrinologist recommended surgery to remove my thyroid and put me on medication for the rest of my life. I searched for an alternative treatment to save my thyroid and found Dr. Forzley. hrough comprehensive lab testing he found out what was causing my immune system to attack my thyroid. I have been receiving treatments and following his recommendations exactly and my lab numbers are now normal, my endocrinologist is happy, my medication has been reduced in half and I feel better. I highly recommend Dr. Forzley and his natural approach. Samantha R. I sufered from unbearable itching caused by Hives (chronic autoimmune Urticaria) for over 33 years. Steroid medications helped the symptoms temporarily but the side efects were bad. Ater an in-depth blood and metabolic analysis, Dr. Forzley found the cause of my problem. Ater 4-5 months of strictly following his recommendations, my hives are completely gone and I feel great. Cheryl P. If your immune system is not managed properly, your condition can worsen, result in a poor quality of life, cause a shortening of the length of your life and cause other autoimmune disorders. Holistic herapy can manage autoimmune conditions by: 1) inding and balancing the underlying cause. 2) lowering the self destructive efects of the immune system. 3) using natural therapies that work with your body.
I can work with your immune system NATURALLY and balance the TH1, TH2, TH3 and TH17. You can never be cured of an autoimmune disorder. BUT, you can get symptom relief and calm down the immune attack on you own body. You must get a detailed immune system evaluation followed by speciic recommendation based on those tests. Guess what stimulates TH1?Vitamin C. But if you are TH1 dominant, Taking vitamin C will WORSEN your immune response. hat’s right worsen. We need to identify which part of your immune system is dominant in order to calm down the immune system. I don’t treat or cure autoimmune disorders. By using speciic neurological and nutritional protocols, I help to decrease your body’s inlammation, detoxify your body, balance TH1, TH2, TH3 and TH17 which NATURALLY boosts your immune system. THAT is how I address autoimmune disorders.

Penman said logs of the system show it activated its warning horns and lights during the May 30 storm, when Dizon, 17, was struck and killed by lightning.

Social media 101 with Downers Grove Township parents Recently, the Downers Grove Township was invited to participate in the first-ever “Social Media Parents Night” hosted by Gower School District 62 in Burr Ridge. The panel: District Assistant Superintendent Rebecca Larratta, Gower; West Engaged Learning Specialist Vicky O’Boyle; Gower West Principal Gina Rodewald; Gower Middle Engaged COMMUNITY Learning Specialist Kevin VOICE Neubert; Angie Zucchero Burr Ridge Police Department; and Cathy Catherine Rager Township of Rager Downers Grove. Technology advances at lightning speed. If you are tech savvy, or a teen, you’ll probably keep up. However, parents may not know the social media sites. Questions parents ask: Is the site safe or exploitive? Is my child using it respectfully with other students? Is my child sharing information or photos that shouldn’t be shared or is inappropriate? How can I block my child from using an unapproved site? How much time should my child spend on this type of communication? What happens if my child is bullied? The police and township staff shared that inappropriate social media messaging can be a source of conflict in and out of school. Current applications students use are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Keek, DigiSocial, Snapchat, Oovo, Voxer, Xbox Live, Skype, Facetime and Kik. Most sites share chat, photos and/or videos, while some specialize more in one medium. Rules can be few and communication inappropriate at times (Facebook), but positive connections can be made, as well. Others “apps” provide real-time pictures that can be saved with cool enhancements (Instagram), or not saved and fleeting (Snapchat). Skype and Facetime offer real-time live video. Safeguards vary from site to site and are worth investigating. Facebook and Instagram users must be 13 or older. Instagram photos are public and can be shared across multiple media platforms allowing for mature content to creep in, or location information to be shared (unless privacy settings are enabled). Social media can be fun, but knowledge and safety is key. School specialists can help parents understand how to safeguard communications, and parents must “go back to school” to strike a balance between their children’s technical skills and knowledge vs. their judgment and reasoning capabilities.

8LETTERS Reader questions trust in government To the Editor: My family is not a politicized family, and government policy rarely is commented upon. We trust that while political parties debate the issues, government entities – like the IRS – operate according to their mandate and follow the laws of this country. Recent news makes me wonder. Can these government agencies really be trusted to execute their jobs fairly? The leaders of the IRS initially lied to the House Ways & Means Committee then later admitted to discriminating practices. When pressed by Congress, former Commissioner Miller stated they did nothing illegal. Lois Lerner, responsible for the IRS’s tax exempt groups, has pleaded the Fifth amendment and will not face congressional investigators. Today, I feel a strong lack of trust in our government, a feeling that is increasingly bipartisan. Today I take a stand against this behavior by sending my comments and questions to my Congressman, Peter Roskam. I know that he is in the middle of this IRS investigation as a member of the House Ways &
Means Committee. His pressing questions get to the heart of the issue: transparency, incompetency, corruption and its effect on Americans. It’s possible I have found what I was looking for: someone I trust. Thanks for working on behalf of the taxpayer, Peter. William Maurer Downers Grove
Time for Sen. Kirk to go? To the Editor: Sen. Mark Kirk and Rep. Bobby Rush smoked the peace pipe (June 4) on camera. It was their way of resolving the brouhaha over Kirk’s call for arresting all 18,000 alleged members of Gangster Disciples street gang to combat violent Chicago crime, and Rush’s calling out Kirk’s horrendous idea as a “an upper middle class white boy” solution to the problem. Rush has gotten most of the criticism as “white boy” moniker is a recognized racial slur, while Kirk’s call for unconstitutional and likely racist mass arrest of legally innocent young black males was simply called “impractical” by Chicago punditry. However, as an upper middle class white boy myself, albeit one with a modicum of racial understanding and sensitivity, I
was horrified by Kirk’s demand. Any person of color knows that when a rich, upper middle class white political leader issues a blanket call for mass arrest of young black males, he is either an overt racist, a racially insensitive fool or a cynical politician playing the race card for political gain. There is another explanation for Kirk’s inexplicable gaffe that we’ve not seen before in his 12-year Congressional career. He could be mentally impaired by the effects of the devastating stroke that keep him out of the Senate for most of 2012. My guess is Kirk will stay. If he does, there is a violent gang he might consider investigating for possible sanction under strictly Constitutional guidelines. I refer to the war party gang which has spent the past 12 years spending trillions of dollars getting hundreds of thousands of people killed in criminal wars for nothing except the enrichment, power or bloodlust of the gang members. That might be tough for Sen. Kirk since, as one of the biggest warmongers in the U.S. Senate, he would have to investigate himself. Walt Zlotow Glen Ellyn

have an iPad. I have a simple, basic computer. I have a simple phone. I can’t afford half the stuff these kids have in high school. And because I’m in an unincorporated area, I have to pay if I want a library card. I still don’t have a library card, and I’ve lived in this area for 19 years and I’m paying enough property taxes to send somebody’s child to school, but I can’t get a library card for free. It makes me want to go back to high school so I can take advantage of my own tax dollars.

Hi, I agree with the person who wrote “enough is enough” regarding real estate taxes that have gone up and our property values going down. And all these kids, especially in Lyons Township, getting all kinds of extras and perks. Education should stick to the basics, and any of these other things, like water polo, aviation and boating, all these other things that kids do, their parents should pay extra for that. I don’t
How to Sound Off
SD • Wednesday, June 12, 2013 • mysuburbanlife.com • Reporter | Progress
I would like to address the reader who left the tidbit on your “Sound Off” column titled “Go ahead and squirm.” The retort to that is, as a public servant, I spent the last 30 years responding to your security and criminal needs. In the dark when you wouldn’t open your door, I was there making sure you were all right. When you heard a noise and wouldn’t go down that dark alley, I did. When you needed help from medical or fire emergency, I came there. Now that our elected officials have brought the mess that they created to the attention of the public, you say, “Go bankrupt.” Shame on you and what you stand for. We gave up parties, plans and events with our families to protect you; now you want to dump us off in the gutter? … I bet you still call us for help. What if we said, “no,” just like you are now?

Thor Guard lightning prediction systems were installed in that park and throughout the park network between 2005 and 2006, according to the park district. The system predicts lightning by measuring electrostatic charges on the ground and in the air, and sounds a loud horn when conditions are conducive for lightning. The initial warning horn is eight seconds long and loud enough to be heard in a two-block radius, according to the park district. A strobe light continues to flash while danger is eminent. When the likelihood of lightning has passed, the horn gives an all-clear signal of two blasts. The park district advises anyone who hears the horn to seek shelter immediately in a building or a hard-top vehicle. All activities at parks also should stop when the horn sounds. Anyone not near shelter or a car should find low ground or dense woods, and avoid open areas, isolated trees, water, metal, wire fences, overhead wires, elevated ground, maintenance machinery and golf carts, according to the park district. Safety materials provided by the district also remind residents lightning travels in the atmosphere and can strike on a sunny day. Penman said the park district educates sports teams about the prediction system, and what to do if horns activate. Instructions also are displayed on signs below the horns in the park. He said the system is tested monthly.

Author investigates paranormal Bartlett resident explores supernatural, superstitious beliefs in first book By BONNIE CLASSEN email@example.com “Piercing the Veils of Death (A Paranormal Exploration)” is Dane Ladwig’s self-published book, which he describes as “an adventure through the hereafter of paranormal, supernatural and superstitious beliefs, where faith intercedes and life questions reason.” The book sold more than 500 copies the first weekend, and a barrage of questions and comments from curious readers anxious to share their own experiences, or delve into the world of supernatural phenomena, overflow from Ladwig’s in-box. The book opens with the story of a young man attending his own funeral and then turns nonfiction, as the author probes his own supernatural experiences and explores related topics such as apparitions, the spirituality of the American Indian, even the death of pets. The book ends with interviews of professional paranormal investigators explaining what happens when they are called out on an alleged haunting or sighting. Ladwig is a Bartlett resident, a graduate of Elmhurst College and Moody Bible Institute and an ordained chaplain, with degrees in English, philosophy and theology. Before the release of his book, he hosted an online radio show, “A View From My Loft,” in which he interviewed authors including best-selling crime writer RJ Parker, now one of Ladwig’s closest friends and mentors. “We just clicked,” Ladwig said. “He is a seasoned writer, a cornucopia of knowledge, and he taught me a lot about self-publishing and also marketing. I am grateful for his wisdom and friendship.” In addition to the goal of completing one book a year to satisfy his passion for writing, Ladwig holds another

objective close to his heart, stemming from a harsh childhood in which he fended for himself on the streets of Chicago. “I’d like to visit schools and serve as living proof that no matter how tough the journey may get, kids can control their destinies, make their own choices and even make a difference in the world,” he said. “And I’d like to urge them to never give up on their dreams, but to dream big; the universe is the limit. I would also like to convey the message that they should never allow themselves to conform to the low expectations of doubters and naysayers who may predict for them a future of inevitable failure.” A portion of proceeds from the book will be donated to fighting Noonan syndrome, a congenital disorder. And Ladwig offers free copies to veterans, service members and civil servants, noting, “These people put their lives on the line every day for my freedom to be able to write, and this is one small way to show my gratitude and thanks.”
Dane Ladwig penned “Piercing the Veils of Death (A Paranormal Exploration).” His second book, “Dr. H.H. Holmes and the Whitechapel Ripper,” scheduled for release this fall, follows three years of research and the procurement of what he re-
fers to as “history-changing evidence” involving the Jack the Ripper murders. He says he is confident that after 125 years, the true story finally will be told.

Eric Jagielo, a former Downers Grove North star, became the fifth-highest major league draft pick, 26th overall, in Notre Dame history last week.
He’s a Yankee now By JASON ROSSI firstname.lastname@example.org DOWNERS GROVE – Eric Jagielo made a big jump up. The former Downers Grove North baseball player was originally selected by the Chicago Cubs in the 50th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. Three years later Thursday, the New York Yankees selected the Notre Dame third baseman in the first round with the 26th overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft. “It’s really hard to put this

feeling into words,” Jagielo said on the Notre Dame athletics website. “People always say ‘This is a dream come true,’ but honestly I’m not sure I could have ever imagined it. You find
yourself on pins and needles throughout the day waiting to hear your name called and when you hear it, you almost don’t realize what just happened.” With the selection, Jagielo became the just the third position player from Notre Dame to be taken in the first round of the draft, and he was the fifth-highest Irish draft selection in history. “Eric is one of the most talented hitters that I’ve ever been around,” Notre Dame head coach Mik Aoki said. “The talent was readily appar-

ent when I saw him for the first time. What I’m probably most proud of is that he’s worked so diligently to make the most of that talent. His selection is a testament to that talent and hard work.” The 2013 Big East Conference Player of the Year, Jagielo led the conference in on-base percentage (.500) and slugging percentage (.633), and was near the top in several other categories, including batting average, home runs, doubles and RBIs. Among a slew of honors he had received, Jagielo was
named coaches first-team all-conference in the 2013 preseason, was a preseason all-American third-team selection by Baseball America, and was a semifinalist for the 2013 Golden Spikes Award as national player of the year. “He’s a tremendous kid from a tremendous family and he has tremendous character,” Downers North baseball coach Chad Issacson said. “There’s a couple that come to mind, but he’s the best hitter we’ve ever had. He’s worked his butt off and has earned what he’s getting.”

ALL-AREA MVP: ELAINE HELFLIN
Rise to power By JASON ROSSI email@example.com DOWNERS GROVE – Elaine Heflin sure showed those travel coaches wrong. Two travel coaches, to be precise. When she was a younger player, two coaches in two different travel softball programs told her she had no future as a pitcher. “It was definitely devastating to hear, but they pushed me to where I am today,” the recent Downers Grove North graduate said. “I wanted to prove those people wrong.” She did that in a big way. A four-year varsity player for the Trojans, Heflin was part of four of the most successful Trojan teams in program history: four conference championships, two regional titles and North’s first appearance in a sectional championship game in more than 30 years. Heflin’s stellar pitching was a foundation of the Trojans’ success during her varsity stint, but if there was one constant it was that she would deflect praise to those around her. “She’s so humble. She would never talk about herself,” North coach Mark Magro said. “She was confident, but not cocky. She never put herself ahead of her teammates.” Humility is something Heflin always has had, and it’s a trait that became even more ingrained thanks to the two coaches who said she should shelve the idea of being a pitcher, and her parents. “Growing up there were some humbling experiences,” she said. “I had to work hard to get to where I am, and my parents told me never to brag, so it comes from my parents

and how they brought me up.” Those two travel coaches obviously didn’t see what Heflin’s youth coaches in DOLLS saw or what a slew of high school coaches saw when she stepped inside the pitcher’s circle. That is, an athletic player, a hard thrower and a fierce competitor. “Heflin is all that they say she is,” Downers Grove South coach Ron Havelka said. “She’s a great pitcher.” “We haven’t faced a pitcher like Heflin all year,” Benet coach Jerry Schilf said before Heflin and the Trojans topped the Redwings in the playoffs. “Without a doubt she’s the best pitcher we’ve seen.” After starting her softball career in first grade, Heflin assumed her pitching duties in second grade and has been at it ever since. She also played first base and third base when she wasn’t pitching earlier in her career, but pitching always was her favorite. Pitching won’t get any easier at the next level when she continues her career at UIC, where she intends to study criminal justice in hopes of becoming a lawyer. But if there is one other constant for Heflin, it’s that she won’t shy away from a challenge. “I always loved pitching because it’s such a challenge,” she said. “I like doing something not a lot of other players could do, something that’s hard to do.”

For opposing pitchers, there was probably no scarier sight than seeing Abello step into the batter’s box. The East Suburban Catholic all-conference selection led the Redwings in average (.550) and home runs (12), tied for team-high honors with 51 RBIs and scored 21 runs, all in 25 games.
Batting in the heart of the order, Andree consistently produced all season and led South’s regulars in hits (53), doubles (13), home runs (six), RBIs (34) and batting average (.449). The West Suburban Gold all-conference shortstop also committed just nine errors in 215 innings and was team coMVP in spring.
A key cog in the Mustangs’ offensive machine, Daly batted .407 overall this spring but picked it up with runners in scoring position, hitting .478 in those situations. She finished with 30 RBIs, a team-high 38 runs scored and five home runs and committed only two errors this season. She was named West Suburban Gold all-conference and team co-MVP.
Caroline Hedgcock School: Downers Grove South Year: Freshman Up with the varsity from the first game of the season, Hedgcock hardly performed like a freshman. The West Suburban Gold all-conference player was among the team leaders offensively with a .368 average, 25 RBIs and three home runs, and she assumed the role of No. 1 pitcher, throwing 154.1 innings and finishing with a 15-8 record.
School: Downers Grove North Year: Senior
School: Lemont Year: Senior
School: Lemont Year: Sophomore
This senior seemingly did it all for the Indians this spring. The ace of the pitching staff, Jaworski finished with a record of 12-6 with two saves and posted an ERA of 1.50 in 126 innings of work. Offensively, as the team’s No. 3 hitter, Jaworski batted .425 with 11 doubles, four triples, three home runs and 35 RBIs.
Coming off an outstanding freshman campaign, Jay outdid herself this spring. A talented shortstop with a cannon arm, this sophomore made life miserable for opposing pitchers. She batted .584 on the season with 13 doubles, 10 home runs, 43 runs scored and 51 RBIs.
The UIC-bound Heflin was one of the most dominant pitchers in the state, and her stats bear that out. The West Suburban Silver all-conference pick finished the season with a 17-5 record with a 0.96 ERA while allowing just 30 walks and striking out 267 batters in 146 innings. She also threw two perfect games, three no-hitters and 10 shutouts.

School: Bolingbrook Year: Sophomore
While the Hornets may have ups and downs this season, Kuchta sure didn’t. Playing in every game this spring, the West Suburban Gold all-conference selection led South in almost every offensive category, including batting average (.441), runs scored (28), RBIs (26), doubles (10) and home runs (five) as the team captured a regional title.
The Raiders’ ace pitcher kept her ERA under two for most of the season until a tough playoff game pushed it to 2.05. But the SouthWest Suburban Blue all-conference selection led Bolingbrook to the regional championship game for the first time in years by striking out a school-record 172 in 147 innings.
Maeve McGuire School: Benet Year: Senior McGuire’s torrid production throughout her high school career continued this season. The University of Georgia-bound East Suburban Catholic all-conference selection finished the season with a .516 batting average, tied for the team lead with 51 RBIs and topped the Redwings with 26 walks and a .625 on-base percentage.
School: Downers Grove North Year: Senior
School: Westmont Year: Junior
School: Lisle Year: Junior
Skala produced whopping numbers at the plate for the Sentinels, where she batted .430 with a team-leading 24 RBIs and three home runs. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. The Interstate Eight all-conference player also was Westmont’s top pitcher and finished the year 11-9 with a 1.96 ERA and 178 strikeouts in 128 innings pitched.
A two-way threat for the Lions, Stitt was among the offensive leaders with a .429 batting average, .675 slugging percentage, 15 RBIs and 15 walks. As the ace pitcher, she fanned 124 and walked 49 in 131 innings. Stitt was team co-MVP, an Interstate Eight all-conference player and all-academic in the I-8.
The primary tasks for a leadoff hitter are to get on base and score runs. Nojiri excelled at both this spring, finishing the year with a team-high .519 batting average and with 33 runs scored. The West Suburban Silver all-conference player also had 15 extra-base hits with nine doubles, three triples, and three home runs.

Trojans say goodbye to ‘special group of kids’ By JASON ROSSI
Senior role call
firstname.lastname@example.org DOWNERS GROVE – Chad Isaacson asked just a few things of his Downers Grove North baseball team this spring. Work hard, come prepared, and improve as the season progressed. Even after the Trojans’ season ended with a 12-4 loss to Neuqua Valley in the sectional championship game, the coach praised his players’ efforts. “For all the years these guys have been in the program they continued to get better every day, and that’s all we’ve ever asked,” Isaacson said. “They’re a better product today than when we started the year. Become a better player, a better person, that’s all we’ve asked, and bar none they’ve done that.”

After a blistering 13-2 start that saw the Trojans take the early lead in the West Suburban Silver conference, they scuffled down the stretch and went 3-8 in May before the playoffs started. But then North recaptured that early momentum for an extended playoff run. “We’ve been a resilient crew,” Isaacson said. “The last
few weeks of the season we spun our wheels a little bit. But they battled their tails off, got it corrected, righted the ship and pushed through a regional into the sectional and have an opportunity at a sectional championship. I’m so proud of them just for their character and how they went about their business.” The sectional loss signaled the end of the road for a slew of seniors, who were a big piece of the Trojans’ success this year. “You can’t say enough (about the seniors), their work ethic and how they went about their business every single day,” Isaacson said. “They made it run and everyone else went right along with it. It’s a special group of kids. They’re going to move on to bigger and better things.”

North makes deepest playoff run since 1979 By JASON ROSSI email@example.com

Downers Grove North’s Hannah Mrazek is greeted at home plate after hitting a home run June 1 in the sectional championship against Downers South.
DOWNERS GROVE – There wasn’t a dry eye among the players when Downers Grove North’s softball season came to an end. The 3-2 loss to Downers Grove South on June 1 in the sectional championship game brought things to a sudden conclusion, but head coach Mark Magro reminded his Trojans there was a lot to like about the 2013 campaign. “They’re all crying and I said to them, ‘I hope you’re not crying because you lost. I hope you’re crying because it’s over,’” Magro said. “They did great. They battled hard and left it all on the field. What more could you ask?” North finished the year 26-9, and won its fourth-

straight West Suburban Silver title rather comfortably – the Trojans finished 11-1 in the league while runners-up York and Glenbard West were 8-4. And a year after winning 30 games but failing to win a postseason title, the Trojans captured a regional title and enjoyed their deepest playoff advancement since 1979. Saying goodbye to a handful of seniors, including ma-
jor contributors Elaine Heflin (pitcher), Brittany Nagy (third base), Carolyn Nojiri (second base and leadoff hitter) and Maddie Wojciak (shortstop), will be tough. Yet North is slated to bring back a slew of other starters plus Dale Ryndak, the Purdue-bound pitcher and fielder who missed all but one game of the season with a knee injury. “It was a great bunch of girls. They were a tight-knit group. I’m going to miss them,” Magro said of the senior class. “We’re going to be good again next year. We’ve got some talented freshmen, and Dale’s coming back. We lost Dale the first game of the year, we didn’t have Hannah [Mrazek, catcher] for a while, and we kept battling [all season].”

wasn’t easy. “I built a number of relationships with the kids, parents and staff,” he said. “It’s always hard to leave and say goodbye. It’s tough ending those relationships, but I hope I made a positive impact.” At Streamwood, Orszula switches to a school that has four times the enrollment of Westmont (2,084 from 501), which will go long way to building the Sabres program. Westmont went 11-34 during Orszula’s stint, with a high-water mark of 4-5 in 2011. Streamwood was 13-33 during the same five-year stretch and made the playoffs in 2011, when it finished with a 6-4 record. “It’s a larger school with larger numbers, and that’s

ways. The goal at Streamwood is to have 22 starters, 11 on offense and 11 on defense, plus special teams starters. “It’s going to be a little dif-
ferent [at Streamwood], but the overall philosophy is really going to be the same. It just comes down to coaching football.”
Local volleyball players prepare for 2 national tournaments SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA
The Westmont New WAVE’s 16-year-old Rush girls volleyball team will play in Orlando and Dallas this month.
WESTMONT – The summer schedule rapidly filled up for the Westmont New WAVE’s 16-year-old Rush girls volleyball team. The June schedule originally was going to consist of a trip to only Orlando for the AAU National Championships Tuesday to June 26, but now the Rush will turn around just two days later and head to Dallas for the USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships June 28 to July 5. The excursion to Dallas wasn’t planned, but the Rush certainly earned its way to nationals. Playing at the Minnesota Northern Lights qualifying tournament in mid-April, the Rush went 10-0, taking out
higher-seeded teams from California and Iowa to take top honors over 72 other teams in the 16 American bracket. New WAVE is based in Westmont, but players from several other suburbs and local high schools comprise the Rush roster, including Westmont High School student Gabby Slagle; Montini’s Jordan Bruscinelli, Mary Long and Gina Cappetta; Downers Grove South’s Katie Vondra and Alexa Acosta; Downers Grove North’s Selene Ushela; Hinsdale South’s Lizzie Niestrom; Glenbard West’s Robin Sackett; and Glenbard East’s Sarah Murphy. The team is coached by Jason Fox and Rachel Hartmann, and New WAVE is co-directed by Deidre Dunbar and Steve Dowjotas.
WESTMONT – After five seasons at the helm, Mark Orszula has stepped down as Westmont High School’s football coach. Orszula, a Lisle High School graduate and former assistant football coach there, will take Mark over the foot- Orszula ball program at Streamwood High School. The move became official in late May, but Orszula said the process of going from Westmont to Streamwood started in the early spring. “It got announced later, but the wheels started turning in the early spring,” Orszula said. “I saw the job, went in and interviewed, and it went really well.” While he is excited about the future at Streamwood, leaving Westmont behind
