By KRISTIN PEDICINI kpedicini@shawmedia.com WESTMONT – The Westmont Park District, the village of Westmont and Westmont Auto Mile are hosting this year’s Fourth of July Celebration and Fireworks at Ty Warner Park, rain or shine. The celebration, at Blackhawk and Plaza drives, will begin at 4 p.m. Thursday with free admission. Some activities include a petting zoo, face painting, games and relays and balloon sculptors. Along with these, the event will have food vendors open until 9 p.m. and live music from the Westmont Community Band and Grand Ave Big Band.

ing two locations to set off the fireworks. It’s the uniqueness of the show that makes the event so popular, Gunter said. “You’re basically right on top of the fireworks,” Gunter said. “It adds a whole different realm to viewing fireworks.” Gunter said parking will be available in the Westmont High School or Westmont Junior High parking lots. Handicapped parking is available at the corner of Chestnut and Burr Oak drives. Gunter said the first Fourth of July celebration was introduced in 2000 as a dedication to the opening of the 48-acre Ty Warner Park. “That year we thought it was a one-year event,” Gunter said. “Now it’s a community celebration.” For information, call the Westmont Park District at 630-963-5252 or visit wpd4fun .org.

“I do it because I love people.”

By KRISTIN PEDICINI kpedicini@shawmedia.com

Ask Dr. Webster

A: Tonsils and adenoids work as part of the body’s immune system. The tonsils are visible at the back of the mouth; the adenoids are high in the throat behind the nose. They’re not visible by looking into the mouth. It requires special instruments to examine them. Tonsils and adenoids filter out germs that try to get into the body. Their primary role is performed during childhood. By age 5, for instance, adenoids start shrinking and have often disappeared completely by the teenage years. As we age, the body develops different protections in the immune system. The tonsils are two masses of tissue on the back of the throat. The most common problem with tonsils and adenoids is recurring infection and significant enlargement which can cause difficulty with swallowing or breathing. Some orthodontists, by the way, believe that chronic mouth breathing caused by enlarged tonsils and or adenoids can cause malformation of the face and improper alignment of teeth. Since the tonsils are clearly visible at the back of the throat, your dentist may be the first person to notice any irregularity in their appearance. On your next regular dental visit, ask for more information on tonsils and adenoids.

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.

DOWNERS GROVE – Downers Grove-based charity Watts of Love, which brings renewable solar lighting to those without access to electricity, has extended its outreach efforts to Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Working through charitable organization GLOW Haiti, Watts of Love delivered solar LED lights to two orphanages and 70 teachers, which will help more than 2,500 children. The Haitian light drop follows Watts of Love’s first light drop this spring in the Philippines. The lights provided by the organization last up to 100 hours on a single charge on the lowest output setting. The highest setting offers the equivalent of 500 lumens, or the brightness of a 40-watt light bulb. That brightness is about 10 times brighter than a kerosene lamp. The Watts of Love solar LED lanterns also have a port for charging cellphones. Watts of Love accepts private donations.

Hinsdale man joins Peace Corps in Zambia By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – Although Nirav Shah is no stranger to helping others, the 31-year-old Hinsdale Central High School alumnus is taking it one step further by joining the Peace Corps in Zambia. For the next 27 months, the Westmont resident will teach public health in classrooms and assist local clinics with health education. “The duration was perfect actually, 27 months, to do something, learn something and assist in a country where assistance was needed the most,” Shah said. After attending College of DuPage, Shah went to California State University, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in international business and marketing in 2006. He headed east to New York for a job, but then traveled back to Chicago, where he enrolled at Benedictine University and earned a mas-

ter’s degree in public health. While at Benedictine, Shah participated in a one-week program the school offered that sent him to Tanzania to help the people there while working in a monastery; a trip that would be the catalyst for his new path. “It kind of opened up my idea for my passion for global health,” Shah said. “This was my calling.” Shah wanted to concentrate his thesis on public health abroad and spoke with his dean about traveling to Kenya in 2010 to teach preventive care with HIV and AIDS through the organization Idealist.org. After returning home and graduating, Shah took a job at the American Cancer Society in Evanston, where he previously volunteered to provide rides to cancer patients throughout DuPage County to and from radiation sessions or other appointments.

Reader wonders where village will draw line on taxes To the Editor, I am very discouraged with the new Westmont restaurant tax. The 1.5 percent tax seems paltry when $100 is spent at a restaurant, but, in principle, is this tax increase just another way to cover up poor government management of tax revenue and budget spending? I believe that most taxes seem plausible if the budgets are managed and audited properly. Will this tax be just one more way for Westmont to meet its budget? Where are the cost increases? I am having doubts about our local government being fiscally responsible on budget management. If this tax increase is just another way to “find someone else to drain tax revenue from,” then we are headed down the same path our state is in … the doldrums. Is spending managing the revenue? It appears that way, doesn’t it? We must audit our books and spending. If everything is ship-shape (which you and I know there are shortcomings somewhere), then cut something out. Perhaps one less trip down the side streets for snow plowing, or more energy efficiency on electrical usage … Who knows? The village board and the mayor should know. I also believe the Progress is “short” on reporting this tax increase. The Progress should interview the restaurant owners and print their perspective. The Progress’ reporting comes up short. Where do these increases end? Spending must be audited and controlled and reported through a Citizens Committee, not just politicians.

formance metrics initiated when new Qdoba President Tim Casey joined in March. He said in a news release that the company will be able to better focus its advertising and marketing to support its other locations. Jack in the Box spokesman Brian Luscomb said the company still is deciding what to do with the soon-to-be vacant buildings.

After Friday’s closings, eight Qdobas remain in the Chicago area, six of which are company-run and two of which are franchises. “Those remaining company locations are performing well,” Luscomb said. The plan is part of a larger reorganization of the chain that also will include many new locations opening. At the end of the second

business quarter in 2013, Qdoba had 647 restaurants, 340 of which are company-operated. Between 70 and 75 new locations are expected to open in fiscal 2013, including about 40 company-owned locations. In 2014, it expects 60 to 70 new Qdoba restaurants to open, about half of which will be company locations, according to the company.

Speaker to portray Hamilton as part of Fourth festivities By ED MCMENAMIN emcmenamin@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – Whether you side with the political philosophies of Alexander Hamilton, or his ideological rival Thomas Jefferson, it’s difficult to deny Hamilton as the embodiment of the American dream. For that reason, speaker Terry Lynch chose Hamilton as

the Founding Father to portray this year at Fishel Park after the Fourth of July Parade in Downers Grove. The free patriotic portrayal and speech will go about 25 minutes and begins at 3 p.m.

“I found he’s a pretty fascinating character – warts and all,” Lynch said. “But he truly was the American dream of someone who had nothing and rose to have quite a bit. He’s someone that epitomizes what we all look to do.” Born out of wedlock in the West Indies, Hamilton served as George Washington’s chief adviser during the Revolutionary War, and then as Washington’s secretary of the treasury.

He founded the nation’s financial system and the Federalist Party, the U.S.’s first political party, before dying in a duel with Vice President Aaron Burr in 1804. Lynch, 49, has performed annually as a different Founding Father or other historical American for Downers Grove residents on the Fourth of July since 2004. As Hamilton, he dresses in a darker outfit with a gold vest, showing some of

the sartorial flamboyance for which he was known. A list of Lynch’s programs and portrayals are available at hfkpresents.com. The Fourth of July Parade begins at 1 p.m. July 4. The parade steps off from Main and Grant streets and heads south on Main Street, ending at Warren Avenue. Fourth of July fireworks begin at 9:30 p.m. at 75th Street and Lemont Road.

With this unstable economy, you would think they might think a little more about putting in asphalt, maybe conserve a little bit or save money.

Just wanted everyone’s opinions on that, and I think it’s ridiculous we’re spending so much money when we could have done asphalt and saved some money.

He left for Zambia on June 11. For the first three months, Shah will live with a host family and receive training before being immersed in the country’s culture.

Restaurant reviews

Baked Apple Breakfast Co. starts day off right DOWNERS GROVE – Does anyone not like breakfast? The popularity of diners would suggest that not only does everyone love breakfast, but patrons will eat it just about anytime – morning or night. The thought holds true at The Baked Apple Breakfast Co. in Downers Grove, where breakfast definitely is the specialty, and you can get your favorites right up until close at 3 p.m. The eatery’s menu is playful and inventive with options such as the Company omelette – apples, cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream – and Red Velvet pancakes with a sweet cream cheese spread. Diners also are treated to plenty of lunch options. Available any time, the luncheon menu includes a well-rounded range of sandwiches, salads, wraps and burgers. On a recent Saturday trip, a friend and I decided to tackle both. I ordered the Wild Turkey – a panini-style sandwich of thick-cut roast turkey, bacon and cheddar. The side options give you a choice between fries and pasta salad. It also comes with a pickle, as all sandwiches should. The turkey was moist and laid on deep, and the bacon retained a good crispiness, even under the pressed panini pressure. I’m glad I decided to go with the side of fries, because they absolutely stand out at Baked Apple. Long, thin and golden with a crispy crunch, these fried taters come in a bountiful bunch and really hit the spot. My dining companion was in the breakfast mood and ordered the Uncle Jesse omelette – spinach, tomato and feta cheese. He really was feeling the hash browns, which, like the fries, were wonderfully crisp, with just the right amount of soft potato inside. His omelette was bright yellow with colorful glints of spinach and nicely filled. It was a substantial serving, and to Baked Apple’s credit, he nearly finished it all. Neither of us was in the mood for sweets on our recent visit, which was too bad. The menu has a lot of options for those who like waffles, pancakes and French toast. A few I considered for another visit are the Holly Berry French toast smothered in strawberries, blueberries and raspberries; the Company

7-on-7 impact By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – There are three certainties in life: death, taxes and Downers Grove North’s football team running the ball. The Trojans’ bread and butter under head coach John Wander has been the option offense. But in an age where passing the football is in vogue, even North gets something out of the 7-on-7 passing events. “I’ve always believed that’s where your secondary and linebackers learn a lot, and you do have to throw the ball sometimes (in the option),” Wander said. “It’s not a lot of

When quarterback David Edwards returns from a trip to Europe, North will load up on the passing events later in the summer. Downers Grove South runs

Quarterbacks relish pass-heavy competitions that add excitement to summer grind

a more balanced offense, and so the passing events are a benefit to the Mustangs. The 7-on-7s are even more critical with two quarterbacks — juniors Jordan Skach and Jacob Baker – competing for the job as starter. “We’ve got two kids competing at QB right now, and the sophomore coverages and varsity coverages are going to be a lot different, so they’re definitely getting a chance to see some different things,” South coach Mark Molinari said. “At the West Suburban 7-on-7 (July 11) we’ll see some defenses that we’ll probably see during the season, so that definitely helps them.” From a player’s perspec-

tive, even the approximation of football at a 7-on-7 helps prepare for the season. “It definitely helps with reads and getting to know your receivers and the routes and stuff like that,” Skach said. Like North, South has most of its 7-on-7s planned for later in the summer. The Mustangs competed against Lemont in a 7-on-7 June 20, but the week after the Fourth of July will be loaded with passing events. Even though the 7-on-7 events have no running plays, no linemen and no pass rush, they do allow teams to compete in something more than intrasquad scrimmages during summer. They also give the

coaches a better idea of what kind of talent is on the roster before preseason practices start in August. “We’re not allowed to go 11-on-11 against another team, so 7-on-7s are really our only chance to compete against somebody else,” Molinari said. “We put ourselves in different situations on the field and run some of our different schemes, so we see how the kids react to that. And for the offense it’s good because we get some scenarios that are game-like speed, and even though we’re not going to have any linemen in front of us, we’re going to see some different coverages. It can be a good teaching tool.”

COLLEGE NOTES

SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA

Follow the Burdi Nick Burdi (Downers Grove South) made a name for himself as one of the toughest pitchers to face this spring. The Louisville sophomore helped the Cardinals compile a 51-14 record as they earned a trip to the College World Series by striking out 62 in 352/3 innings of relief work. He finished the season with a 0.76 ERA and held opponents to a .192 batting average. He yielded just 25 hits on the season, only four of which went for extra bases.

in the indoor pentathlon, and at the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin outdoor meet, he finished third in the decathlon (5,954) to help NCC win the conference title.

High Flyer

Watching Walsh

Jake Murray (Downers Grove North) was a key piece for Lewis University’s baseball team this spring. He started 50 of 51 games and was second among everyday players with a .333 batting average. He led the Flyers (33-18) in home runs (10) and runs scored (46), was second with 15 doubles and 54 hits, and was top-5 in RBIs (29).

Dan Walsh (Downers Grove South) started 54 of 56 games for the Miami University (Ohio) baseball team this spring, and was a key contributor for the Red Hawks (26-30). The junior batted .255 and led the team with four triples, finshed second on the team with 36 RBIs, was fifth with 51 hits and was among the team leaders with 22 runs scored and seven doubles.

Tracking success Nick Kirk (Downers Grove North) certainly made an impact for Bradley University’s men’s track team this spring. As a freshman he claimed the third-best 3,000- (8:53.27) and 5,000-meter (15:24.23) times on the squad for the outdoor season. His time in the 3,000 is already the sixth-best in school history, and he is one of just eight runners in program history to go under nine minutes in the 3,000.

Hletko’s 10 Joe Hletko (Westmont) made his senior season for North Central College’s track and field team a memorable one. Hletko posted a career-best score of 4,655 points

Game, set, match Brian Sorich (Downers Grove South) earned high marks for the men’s tennis team at Illinois Wesleyan University. The junior was named the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin Player of the Week for the week of April 10, was CCIW first team all-conference and was named team MVP after going 13-10 in singles play and 13-11 in doubles action.

Redbird reliever Joe Claver (Downers Grove North) appeared in seven games (one start) for Illinois State’s baseball team this spring. The redshirt sopho-

more went 2-2 and struck out six batters in 10.2 innings pitched as ISU went 39-19 this spring.

Spread it around Sophomore Megan Hansen (Westmont) was a key runner for Elmhurst College’s track and field team this spring. She was part of the 4x800-meter relay team that clocked a time of 10:33.29 and placed fifth at Rhodes Invite in late March. Later, she ran one of the Bluejays’ tops times in the 5,000-meter run (21:21.76) during the outdoor season.

Clocking Lott Robert Lott (Downers Grove North) had a successful season for North Central College’s track team. During the indoor season, the junior was clocked at 6.66 seconds in the 55-meter dash, 7.16 in the 60 dash, 23.20 in the 200 dash, and was part of a 4x200 relay that was timed at 1:30.05. During the outdoor season, Lott was timed at 11.10 in the 100 dash and 23.69 over 200 meters.

The best of Ulrich Jeremy Ulrich (Downers Grove South) couldn’t have asked for a better freshman season for the track and field team at North Central College. Competing in throws during the outdoor season, he had bests of 135 feet, 4 inches in the

discus, 110 feet in the hammer throw and 149-10 in the javelin.

Davis and discus Competing for the University of St. Francis track and field team, Eric Davis (Westmont) finished his junior season with the Saints’ top mark in the discus with a distance of 50.49 meters, over 165 feet.

What a catch Nick Tenerelli (Downers Grove South) played and started at catcher in 39 of 45 games for Augustana’s baseball team, and the sophomore finished the year with a .283 average, 36 hits, 26 runs scored, 15 RBIs and a .982 fielding percentage (five errors in 279 chances).

Loving Lavin As a member of Augustana’s softball team, Chelsea Lavin was one of the Vikings’ top players this spring. The sophomore was second on the team with a .391 batting average, and she also was among the team leaders with 52 hits, 24 runs scored and 22 RBIs.

Brooke Andresen (Downers Grove South) made the spring a most memorable one. The Loyola University senior became the first player in Loyola softball history to earn Horizon League all-conference first-team honors in each of her four seasons as a Rambler. Additionally, the catcher and shortstop graduated as Loyola’s career leader in hits (215), runs (116), and atbats (637), and her .338 career batting average also ranked among the top five in program history. She was named Capital One all-academic first team for District V.

LaCivita, made her name known for Loyola’s softball team. The freshman saw action in 26 contests and made 20 starts for the Ramblers this spring.

Gluten-free meals Get your gluten-free menu started with these tips: n Start your day with a gluten-free English muffin that’s crispy outside, fluffy inside and topped with delicious, nutritious goodies. Try topping yours with mashed avocado that’s been whisked with crushed chili, a splash of lime juice and a pinch of salt. Or, if you like something sweeter, try gluten-free almond butter with raspberries, blackberries or a dash of cinnamon sugar. n Go beyond the basics for your midday meal with a standout sandwich. Rethink tuna salad by using Dijon mustard instead of mayo and adding capers, diced sundried tomatoes and preserved lemon. Or go for a veggie extravaganza with portobello mushrooms, roasted red peppers, crunchy sprouts and hummus. n Everyone loves pizza for dinner. Using gluten-free tortillas, the whole family can create personalized minipizzas with thin, crunchy crusts. Simply assemble the toppings of choice and either grill or toast in the oven.

American as ... Fourth of July is not complete without apple pie By Lisa Messinger Creators Syndicate

EaSY RECIPE

Chicken Satay Prep time: 15 minutes Refrigerate: 1 hour Cook time: 6 minutes n 2 T fish sauce n 2 T red curry paste n 2 t minced fresh lemon grass n 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4inch strips n Bamboo skewers n 1/2 cup storebought peanut satay sauce Mix coconut milk, fish sauce, curry paste and lemon grass in small bowl until well blended. Place chicken in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. add marinade; toss to coat well. Refrigerate 1 hour or longer for extra flavor. Remove chicken from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Soak bamboo skewers thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with chicken. This prevents them from burning when on the grill. Thread chicken strips onto skewers. Broil or grill over medium-high heat 3 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. Serve with peanut satay sauce for dipping.

Freedom is the name of the game on the Fourth of July. So why not extend that privilege in a fun way to your party guests’ taste buds? Alongside your red, white and blue decorations, paper plates and cups, make everything you set on the outdoor buffet a playful and delicious choice they can decide upon, such as: n Platters of large, juicy red, green and purple grapes. n Bowls of bananas and plantains. n Salad bar with romaine, arugula and spinach. n Angus beef hot dogs, turkey hot dogs and tofu hot dogs. n White frankfurter buns, wholegrain frankfurter buns and pretzel frankfurter buns. n All-American, Dijon and spicy mustard. n Plain potato chips, sour cream and chive potato chips and cheddar potato chips. n Orange juice, orange soda and orange-flavored iced tea. And for dessert, why not serve both this outstanding all-American apple pie and the famed French upside-down apple pie (tarte tatin). Lisa Messinger is a first-place winner in food writing from the Association of Food Journalists and the author of seven food books, including “Mrs. Cubbison’s Best Stuffing Cookbook” and “The Sourdough Bread Bowl Cookbook.”

All-American Apple Pie Yields 1 9-inch pie n 1 (9-inch) store-bought or homemade pie crust that includes top and bottom n 6 to 8 preferably firm and slightly tart apples, such as Granny Smith, Gravesteins or Rhode Island Greenings (about 3 pounds) n Granulated sugar (see note) n Ground cinnamon, to taste n About 3 T sifted all-purpose flour n 3 T butter, cut in small bits If crusts are homemade, keep them chilled. Preheat oven to 375 F. Peel and core the apples and slice them about 1/4-inch thick. Toss with sugar and cinnamon and with the flour. Fill the pie’s bottom crust

with apple slices, mounding them somewhat in center. Dot with butter. Cover loosely with top crust, using a little water to seal crusts together. Crimp edges using a fork or the tip of a knife, making several dents in the top crust. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour, or until

golden brown and giving off a pleasant scent. Preferably serve warm. Note: The amount of sugar is determined by how sweet the apples are.

— “Jasper White’s Cooking from New England,” Epicurious.com

Puff Pastry Tarte Tatin Yields 6 to 8 servings n 1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter n 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided n 10 Golden Delicious apples n 2 T lemon juice n 1 9-inch circle pre-baked puff pastry (see note) Preheat oven to 350 F. In a 9-inch ovenproof skillet, melt butter over mediumhigh heat. Stir in 1/2 cup of the sugar and cook, stirring constantly until it turns golden brown. Carefully remove from heat and set aside. Peel, core and quarter the apples. In a nonreactive bowl, toss together the apples and lemon juice. arrange apple quarters rounded sides down in the ovenproof skillet, like a flower pattern, filling in the gaps with more apples placed curved side up. Sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar over the apples.

Cook over medium heat until the apples start to brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook until the apples are tender, 20 to 30 minutes more. Remove from the heat and let the apples cool to room temperature. Before serving, preheat the broiler. Return the pan to medium heat, just until the caramel softens enough for apples to loosen. Remove the pan from the heat and top the apples with the pre-baked pastry. Invert a round heatproof serving platter over the pastry and, carefully holding the platter and skillet together, invert them; then lift off skillet to unmold the tarte tatin onto the platter. If any apples stick to the skillet or become dislodged, replace them on

the tarte tatin. Sprinkle the top evenly with the remaining sugar and caramelize it very briefly under the broiler. note: Follow manufacturer’s instructions for cutting and baking puff pastry.
