LA GRANGE – District 105 has been trying to make summer school cool for four years, and it’s working. More than a third of the district’s 1,200 students (not including incoming or outgoing students) participated in its summer learning program this year. It’s the highest number of participants the district has had since officials redesigned the program to fight the “brain drain” that research shows occurs over a long summer break. Four years ago, the district studied data from a standardized test called Measures of Academic Progress that showed its students were regressing over the summer. “They were actually scoring lower [after returning in the fall] than their spring scores when they left us,” said Kathryn Heeke, the district’s director of curriculum. That year, the district developed a website featuring learning games and other assignments that it distributed to parents. The following year, it asked all district parents to sign their students up for one of three summer programs: structured, flexible or independent. Two-thirds of the 460 students who participated this summer went the structured route and met regularly with one of 32 district teachers or aids, Heeke said. The teach-

struggling,” Heeke said. “In fact, your highest [achieving] kids will sometimes regress more because you tend to regress to the mean.” The program is not tied to a specific curriculum, so teachers can be creative when coming up with assignments. Barb Hope, a third grade teacher at Ideal Elementary, said one of her students wanted to learn all he could about bridges this summer, so she had him piece together two suspension bridge models using Popsicle sticks. Another of Hope’s students wrote the first two chapters for her own book. “I have seen students maintain their interest throughout the summer, which is huge,” Hope said of the program. “If you can make a child interested in reading and math throughout the summer, it makes the transition back to school so much easier.” Once the year starts, the students who participated in summer learning programs take less time to review previously learned skills and can get ahead, said Hope, who has been a summer teacher for each of the program’s four years. For students who don’t meet directly with teachers, the district encourages parents to have their children complete 30 minutes of math and 30 minutes of reading each day, with an emphasis on math.

La Grange Park considers amendment for front porches SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA LA GRANGE PARK – The village is considering an amendment to its zoning ordinance that would encourage the building of more front porches in the community. McNaughton Development, Inc., a developer building eight homes in the new Heatherdale subdivision, requested the amendment, which would exempt the first 200 square feet of an unenclosed front porch from a property’s building coverage calculation. Currently, only 30 percent of a property’s lot size can be taken up by all combined principal structures, which include the house itself and features porches. The Zoning Board of Appeals recommended approval of the amendment with a vote of 3 – 1 (three members were absent), sending it to the Village Board, which will vote

on the amendment in September. Residents are encouraged to attend the Sept. 10 Village Board work session to provide input, Village Manager Julia Cedillo said. Over the past five years, less than 30 percent of homes built in the village have included unenclosed front porches, indicating homeowners are instead opting to maximize interior space, according to a village study. By excluding porch space from lot use calculations, the village hopes to encourage the addition of porches, which it says encourages residents to spend time outside and get to know fellow residents. When residents spend mo re ti me ou ts id e th ei r homes, there are more “eyes on the streets,” resulting in safer neighborhoods, the village study said. The amendment would not apply to enclosed or wrap-around porches.

By ALEX RUPPENTHAL LA GRANGE – The village’s first Vietnamese restaurant will open in December and feature a nationally-renowned chef. Quoc Long, former chef de cuisine at Le Colonial in Chicago, will cook up traditional Vietnamese dishes, including noodle soups, duck, fish and sandwiches at O Mai La Grange, which is scheduled to open before the holidays in El Picante’s current spot. El Picante owner Tony Soto said there was too much

competition among Mexican restaurants in downtown La Grange (namely Santiago’s and Casa Margarita). Soto and his wife, Thipi Thai owner Tarnthip Kunuparkarn, are developing the new restaurant, which will open for lunch and dinner and feature a seasonal menu that changes about twice a year. Because of Vietnam’s French influence, O Mai will feature rolls, sandwiches and other breads in addition to noodle and soup-based dishes. “Asian food is usually similar, but Vietnamese is not too spicy,” Kunuparkarn said.

LT refusing to pay $2M bill from school treasurer By ALEX RUPPENTHAL aruppenthal@shawmedia.com LA GRANGE – Lyons Township High School District 204 is refusing to pay a $2 million bill for services from the Lyons Township School Treasurer’s Office because of an agreement the district said it made with the treasurer’s office in 1999. Superintendent Tim Kilrea said although there was no official intergovernmental agreement made between the district and treasurer’s office, both sides determined that the district would pay its own staff to perform bookkeeping duties and in turn not pay the township school treasurer, who manages public funds for 13 districts in the western suburbs, including District 204. Kilrea said the district has provided the office with 13 years of a paper trail affirming the agreement. The treasurer’s office would send invoices to the district, which then sent back invoices from its in-house treasurer showing that the services had in effect been outsourced from the township school treasurer to district staff. The documents were approved in open meetings, Kilrea said. District 204 has handled parts of its own bookkeeping the 1970s, and the 1999 agree-

ment was put in place so the district wouldn’t have to pay double for services it already was conducting in-house, Kilrea said. “We paid our folks in-house to do this,” he said. “So, therefore, to insinuate that we have been receiving something for nothing is totally incorrect.” The district has been trying to separate itself from the office, but a bill filed by state Rep. Jim Durkin to remove the district from the township school treasurer’s jurisdiction was shut down by the Illinois Senate in April. “The township treasurer is a layer of government that exists only in Cook County (outside of Chicago),” Kilrea said in a separate email statement. “Multiple high school and elementary school districts in Cook County have separated from their respective township treasurer office. It is an unnecessary unit of local government and serves no useful purpose as it relates to LT. What LT is seeking is not unique and we have received support from multiple member school districts currently being served by the Lyons Township School Treasurer’s Office.” The treasurer’s office, however, said District 204 owes

LA GRANGE – The Lyons Township High School District 204 Board of Education approved a resolution Aug. 19 to issue $21 million in bonds for renovation projects at both high school campuses. Highlights include a $3.7 million project to replace and relocate a school bus-sized air conditioning unit at the Reber Center; $5.3 million to redo the North Campus cafeteria by relocating the kitchen and increasing seating and lighting; $1.275 million to renovate six science labs at South Campus; and a to-be-determined amount for a reconfiguration of the entrance at South Campus intended to increase security by making visitors enter through a holding area. The $21 million mark is a not-to-exceed figure, but the district likely will try to limit spending to $19.6 million. “That is the target number that will allow us to maintain our Triple-A rating, which is very important to this board of education,” board President Mark Pera said. The bonds will be applied over a 10-year period and allow school districts to issue long-term debts without going through a referendum. Costs for specific projects are projected and won’t be known until DLA Architects casts bids in December and January. The time will allow the district to draw the most favorable bids. Because the district is rolling over bonds that already exist, the renovations will not result in a tax increase to residents, Pera said. He asked the public to consider the task of maintaining both of the

school’s campuses when evaluating the project. “The infrastructure demands of an aging building at South [Campus] and a very old building at North [Campus] are enormous,” Pera said. “And it costs millions of dollars to keep these facilities in the condition that the public would expect them to be in for the educational benefit of their children.” The Reber Center project drew the most discussion and analysis, with the board eventually deciding to spend more and replace an air conditioning unit that produces a rattling noise performance groups say hurts the presentation of their shows. The board heard two presentations by an acoustician, who measured the noise level in the center at 37 decibels. The standard for a high school performance arts center is 25. Renovations will replace the existing unit with four smaller pieces of equipment, said Dwain Lutzow from DLA Architects. The board demanded assurance from Lutzow that renovations will lower the center’s noise level to the standard 25 decibels, but given the center’s age, that could involve a higher-than-projected cost. The board said it would commit the necessary money to renovate the Reber Center, even if costs come in higher than estimated. That would inevitably nix other projects, chiefly the $1.6 million installation of artificial turf on the middle field at West Field. The board already is hesitant to go ahead with the project because a sizable chunk of its cost would go toward replacing an underground water pipe that belongs to the village of La Grange.

Spring Avenue teacher gets a head start on classroom design By ALEX RUPPENTHAL aruppenthal@shawmedia.com LA GRANGE – About halfway through the summer, Amanda Dahlin starts sketching a plan for her classroom. As the start of the school year approaches, she spends days putting the plan to action – cutting out paper letters for displays, hanging posters, collecting supplies, organizing bookshelves and laying out every foot of the space her students soon will know as well as their bedroom. “I would say [I spend] a solid week just getting things set up and organized,” said Dahlin, a third-grade teacher at Spring Avenue Elementary School. “And that’s working all day.” Dahlin isn’t the only teacher who puts so much effort into setting up her room, but she might have the science down as well as anybody. Each area in Room 106 is designated for a purpose: reading, writing, spelling or math. Books are filed in rows of different colored baskets; underneath are more baskets with the names of each of Dahlin’s students for the year. “You want your room to feel like home to them, but you also have to have some sort of structure and organization,” Dahlin said. Once a week, she transforms the reading corner into a small stage with a curtain for a bistro-type setting where students share writing they’ve been working on. Beyond the noticeable posters and checklists and organizational features, the room is set up to leave an open space at the front of the room, where Dahlin’s class gathers

each day for a morning meeting. It’s part of the community environment Dahlin said she and fellow teachers try to create. An example: Instead of individual desks pushed together, students sit at one edge of a hexagon-shaped table. “Especially for those students who maybe are struggling but can’t come up with an answer right away, they can kind of think [through a problem] with a neighbor,” Dahlin said. Before the year, Dah lin collects all the supplies bought by her students’ families. They can keep special folders or pencils (like with cartoon characters on them), but items such as glue and scissors go into a community bin. It saves time students normally would spend searching for their own supplies and adds to the community feeling. Dahlin has a desk near a corner of the room, but she hardly uses it and wouldn’t mind if it weren’t there. Most of her time is spent helping students or meeting with them in the open area at the front of the room. In addition to the morning meeting, Dahlin will hold meetings on days when her students struggled to behave at lunch or recess. She’ll remind her students the rules they created at the start of the year together. At the end of each day, she has them close their eyes and give a thumbs up, middle or down to evaluate the day. “I think the biggest part is the kids’ ability to reflect on themselves and their classmates,” she said. “They are very honest about it.”

38 PERCENT: No, enough is enough with the technology already 34 PERCENT: Yes, it would cut down on paper, heavy books and keep them current 16 PERCENT: Not yet, but it’s bound to happen soon 12 PERCENT: Why stop with high school kids?

We know all the words to ‘Goodnight Moon’ … now what? New parents always have fun books ready for baby’s arrival. Nothing is more precious than reading to a baby as they absorb every sound being said. Then, baby grows into a toddler and starts to make choices on their own, like picking out a favorite bedtime story. Who wouldn’t love to read “GoodCOMMUNITY night Moon” by Margaret Wise Brown to an excited VOICE young learner again and Melanie again? Tillis And, again, again and again. Now what? Sometimes we get this question in the Children’s Department here at the Westchester Public Library. Parents desperately want to move their little ones along with the hope of never having to repeat another line from that same old book. However, depending on the age of the child, do not be so quick to make changes. According to Moises Roman of the UCLA Early Care & Education Department, “If the schedule is consistent, children learn the pattern. Once a pattern is set children can infer. This way, there aren’t too many unknowns.” Reading can become a part of a routine, and so can the books that are read to them. Basically, it’s a comfort thing. But change must come at some point, so here are some tips for parents in need of help mixing it up at reading time. Toddlers like books with repetition, colorful pages, sound words and simple text. They really go for the wow factor. It may seem cheesy, but through that wow they learn words, how to pretend to read, how to listen and best of all, they develop patience. Still, remember this is a learning process, so do not get frustrated because challenges may come. Just go with the flow. To wrap it up, all you are going through is normal. Don’t get sad, tired or frustrated. You and your child are where you need to be. As with anything, adding new stories to the mix can become a part of a regular schedule. The Westchester Public Library can add variety to reading time.

Freshmen students spend time at Freshmen Experience Day at Lyons Township High School.

A thumbs up to all our local schools on the successful start of a new year of education. In our latest issue, we profile teachers who go above and beyond to design their classrooms for fun and a summer school program that’s shaking things up. There’s a lot of hard work that goes into starting school each year, so let’s all take a moment to thank the teachers and administrators for all they do. A thumbs up to school officials at Barnsdale Road School. Recently, the school had 38 computers stolen at night through an unlocked window. Police ended up charging two young adults with the theft. School officials, however, decided to be merciful and pursued a misdemeanor charge as opposed to a felony. Officials said they preferred this route so that the crime would not forever be on the records of the accused.

Ruined lawns I live on Springwood Lane in Bolingbrook. Comcast invaded the neighborhood this morning with three or four trucks and equipment to run a new line. None of the neighbors were aware of this, and all they’re doing is tearing up their grass. They’re telling them that they’re going to repair them. What they’re gonna probably do is throw a little seed down there

Great day for kids I attended my first Kops N Kidz day on Aug. 10 [in Lemont]. I would like to compliment the Park District, police officers, donors and volunteers. I thought that it was a great outing. I was surprised to see that everything was free for the kids. It is wonderful that all families, regardless of their financial situation, were able to take their kids to have a good time. I am already looking forward to next year.

Here we go again. The General Assembly and governor passed a bill to enable DuPage to enact their own stormwater fees based on property owners’ rainwater displacement. The law permitted Peoria property owners to vote on whether or not to be taxed for this on top of their ongoing property taxes. The law did not give DuPage citizens the same right to vote. Now our county has to decide if it will or will not decrease our property taxes when it starts charging

when they’re done, and they’re actually ruining some very, very good lawns.

Parents benefit from program For Margo Leardini, enrolling her son, Hayden, in the structured learning program was a no-brainer. “I hear a lot of parents that sort of grumble about it, and I honestly don’t understand why, because it’s voluntary and it’s free,” she said. “I’ve noticed a huge difference. My son has a lot of anxiety about school and it’s helped him to go through it and see it’s not so scary.” Hayden, who is in third grade, sometimes complained about having to do assignments or go to school, Leardini said. But many assignments are in a game-like format and offer positive feedback, which helped. “The assignments were so fun that [they] didn’t feel like

work,” Leardini said. Heeke hopes the percentage of students participating in the program will continue to increase as the district reframes the concept of summer school. “When we think about the school year now, we think about it very differently,” she said. “Year-round schooling would be an interesting concept. It’s something that lots of school districts look at. It’s not anything that we’re looking at right now – there’s a lot involved with something like that. So this is our way to be as creative as possible to lengthen the school year.”

There’s something celebratory about burning a paid-up mortgage and owning one’s home free and clear, but paying off the mortgage may not be the best use of your money. It’s all about dollars and cents. Do you carry a big balance on your credit cards? Consider that you’re being charged 13 percent—or more— on that debt, far more, we’ll bet, than your mortgage interest. And mortgage debt is deductible! Better to pay off the credit balance first. Have you maxed out your retirement funds? This year someone over 50 can sock away $23,000 in a 401(k) and $6,500 in an IRA. And don’t consider using that money for the mortgage! It’ll cost. Do you have an emergency fund to cover six months of living expenses? Keep funds liquid, in case of need. Many investments are paying better than the interest rate on your mortgage.

the $2 million because it has no record of the 1999 agreement, and the district has not produced a record indicating the agreement was voted on by its board, said Mike Thiessen, a member of the board of trustees that works alongside the township’s treasurer. Thiessen was hired after the August 2012 resignation of former Lyons Township School Treasurer Robert Healy, who was charged Aug. 15 with stealing more than $1.5 million over a 20-year period from the 13 area districts whose money he managed. LT is the biggest district in the group. In addition to allegedly stealing money, Healy withheld information about investments and cash reserves from the districts and operated without legitimate oversight, Thiessen said. Until LT can show the agreement was approved by its board, the treasurer’s office will continue to demand the money. “The only record we can see is that there was a conver-

sation in the finance committee meeting at LT,” Thiessen said. “ … It doesn’t appear that it was ever voted on by the full board.” Thiessen said the treasurer’s office is determining where the $2 million will go if it receives payment of the bill. Some of it could go to other districts that might have paid more for services because District 204 was not making payments, Thiessen said. Although the district handles much of its own bookkeeping, the township school treasurer still manages $37 million to $38 million of district’s reserve funds, Thiessen said. But the district hasn’t paid the office in about 11 years, he said. Kilrea said bills the district received from Healy never were itemized and that the district cannot be expected to pay for an unknown percentage of services. He also said other districts overseen by the treasurer have failed to pay bills. “I just would wonder if they’re going to go after all of those funds that weren’t paid in full by the other districts,” Kilrea said.

Restaurant reviews

Superlative experience awaits at prasino LA GRANGE – The western suburbs are full of amazing, unique restaurants, and La Grange has become known as a dining destination. Still, there aren’t many places like prasino, located just across the street from its sister restaurant, the beer and gastropub haven called Wild Monk. Restaurants such as prasino abound in big cities, where culinary trends gravitate toward sustainable, seasonal and local with chef-centric menus appealing to a foodie crowd. A dish is displayed simply and beautifully, all of it begging to be Instagrammed (of which I’m guilty). The word “prasino” means green in Greek, and the restaurant takes the sentiment to heart, focusing on ingredients that are organic and hormoneand antibiotic-free. On the menu is a key that identifies the letters next to food and drink items to let diners know what’s vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. My dining companion and I began our meal with a pan of absolutely outstanding, fresh and delicately flavored mussels. I love mussels – I know not all do – but if you want to give them a spin, prasino is a good place to try. The mussels are steamed in the pan, bathed in a white wine, garlic, butter and herb broth, where the garlic does not overpower, and the flavor is light and rewarding. The grilled bread is smokey and great for soaking up the flavor. For our second course, we decided to try one of several flatbread offerings on the menu. We went for the farm flatbread, made with a blend of cheeses, sprinkled with chives and drizzled with truffle honey. If you like honey in your Greek yogurt, you’ll like this. The creamy and sweet combination works well together atop cracker-thin flatbread that’s perfectly crispy on the edges, with just a little chew in the center. Before moving on to the final course, I’ll take a moment to discuss the cocktail menu

The farm flatbread – cracker thin and absolutely delightful – is prepared with cheeses complemented by chives and truffle honey.

AUTO BITS

Road trip tips Millions of Americans are expected to take a vacation this year. If you’re one of those hitting the road, here are a few reminders to help ensure you’re road-tripready. 1. Check under the hood. Even if you properly care for your vehicle year-round by keeping up with regularly scheduled maintenance, it is wise to check your vehicle’s oil, coolant and wiper fluid levels before heading out on the road. 2. Inspect your vehicle. To help avoid any unfortunate surprises, do a thorough check of your vehicle, paying special attention to the only part that actually touches the road — your tires. Be sure to properly check all four tires with a tire pressure gauge. 3. Check the weather. Storms are common during the summer months, and the first few minutes of a shower can be a dangerous time for drivers. 4. Prep friends, family and your home. Remember to tell neighbors, friends and family that you’ll be out of town. Ask your neighbors to keep an eye on the house and have someone pick up your mail and newspaper.

Did You Know Consumer Reports recently gave rave reviews to the new Chevrolet Impala, saying it’s the best new sedan it has ever tested.

Review RAM 3500 LARAMIE LonghoRn CREw CAB 4X4

Big truck makes sow’s purse out of silk ear

N

ationwide, pickuptruck sales have rebounded from the pit of 1.1 million units in 2009 to 1.66 million last year; and pickups are now the No. 4 market segment, making up 11.2 percent of all vehicle sales. This isn’t likely to drop, either (at least until gas hits $5 a gallon again), as the average pickup on the road is 12 years old now and apparently there’s pent-up demand. Furthermore, crew-cab pickups — the ones with cabins extended for four seats and four doors-were zero percent of the market in 2001, but accounted for more than 60 percent in 2012, and some 30 percent of pickups now sell for more than $40,000. To Detroit, these trends mean that pickups have The Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn Crew Cab 4X4 brings new dimensions to chromebecome “multipurpose plating.

will appreciate the poweradjustable pedals and seat, and the chromed side steps to climb that high. The tri-fold cover gives the cargo bed a finished look. The touch-screen controls are nearly as complex as a high-end German sedan’s. All this, however, raises the sticker price to apoplectic levels, yet leaves us with something that’s neither fish nor fowl. The electronics and extra features make this one too fussy to be a down-anddirty jobsite rig, while no amount of bling can disguise its basic truckishness or make it into something it’s not. Transmission upshifts are coarse. It steers like a canal boat. The ride goes to heck the moment the pavement does — aim the Ram 3500 down a rutted road and the back end begins to dance around uncontrollably, just like pickup trucks did 40 years ago. Don’t expect modern high-speed highway manners, either. Dodge took a perfectly good $30,000 pair of coveralls and tailored them into an ill-fitting $60,000 tuxedo. And buying even a plain Ram 3500 Crew Cab 4X4 as an everyday vehicle would be like using the USS Iowa as a picnic boat.

LYONS TOWNSHIP LIONS SENIOR SAYS | MATT MRAZEK

‘We’re going to come out hot’ By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com WESTERN SPRINGS – Matt Mrazek will be one of few players on Lyons Township to play both ways. Mrazek will play safety and use his size and strength to provide a big target at wide receiver. After starting on the LT basketball team in the winter, Mrazek is a captain for the football team.

I feel like in the past teams have gotten to the quarterfinals and you think last year’s team did it and people kind of get comfortable. We need to push through that and fight for a state championship.

has had the past two regular seasons? Mrazek: Our coaching staff talks a lot about eliminating the kind of rollercoaster play that we’ve had. We need to come out fast and keep that intensity throughout the whole year because we have the skill and the players on this team that we should be winning every game we play. We just need to execute.

Santaromita: How do you replace a dynamic player like Matthew Harris? Mrazek: I think we’ve got plenty of players coming back this year, myself and Sam (Shea) at receiver as well as Marcell Kellum. We’ve got a few guys coming back. We’ve got a lot of experience last year. I think in terms of playmaking ability we’ll be just fine this year.

Matt Mrazek catches a pass as receivers drill during Lyons Township practice Monday in Western Springs. Santaromita: What do you expect from this team? Mrazek: We’re going to come out hot. Don’t expect any rollercoaster play from us this year.

Santaromita: Is it a point of pride to play in the deep West Suburban Silver? Mrazek: Definitely. Just about every team we play makes the 8A playoffs.

SENIOR SAYS | JAKE BARTELS

Playoff return is top priority By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com

Santaromita: What is your early impression of your team? Bartels: The offensive line has been looking really solid throughout the whole camp so I’m pretty excited with what we have. We have a lot of young skill players so I think we’ll definitely be able to make a good run here and compete well in the ESCC.

About Jake Bartels Position: Quarterback Height: 6-foot-4 Weight: 210 pounds

the ESCC? Bartels: I think it’s good. It prepares us well for the playoffs for if we end up making it. Going up against schools that are obviously bigger than we are except for Joliet Catholic so it’s nice playing teams like that. You want to play the best of the best. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I enjoy playing the real solid competition week in, week out.

Santaromita: What was the Santaromita: Do you like playing in a tough conference like feeling after going 5-4 and miss-

feeling last year knowing that we just missed it. We’ve been working hard this whole offseason, whole camp, summer leading in and practice right now just trying to get an opportunity to redeem what happened last year and ultimately make it to the playoffs this year.

Santaromita: What’s it like playing under coach Tim Racki? Bartels: I think it’s good knowing the history he had at Driscoll [four state titles] and all the winning that he’s done as a coach. He obviously had success. He’s been a great mentor as far as leadership. He really teaches us and gives us the tools as far as leadership and being able to succeed once football is over.

Santaromita: As a returning

Nazareth quarterback Jake Bartels drops back during practice Thursday in La Grange Park. quarterback are you hoping to pass the ball more this season? Bartels: For me personally I just want to win football games. I don’t care how it gets done. It’s not about personal stats. I couldn’t really care less if we threw the ball five times a game as opposed to 30 times a game as long as we put up wins.

Santaromita: What are your

goals for the season? Bartels: Our No. 1 goal this year is to make it back to the playoffs. I know we kind of had that taste two years ago making it to the Elite Eight and everything so we all kind of got to be around it. I think last year just missing it by a few (playoff) points we’re all really hungry to get back there and hopefully make another run.

The mother and son team make up Higgins Glass Studio, 33 E. Quincy, entrusted to the Wimmers to carry on the art crafted by their long time mentors, Fran and Michael Higgins, who began the company in 1948. Louise and Jonathan agree that it was Fran’s ideas and Michael’s energy and ingenuity that led these two huge talents to start their work out if their Chicago apartment in 1948. Over the years their art sold in such major retailers as Marshall Field’s, Georg Jensen and Bullocks Wilshire, the very high end store in the California based department store chain. In 1966, the Higgins decided to return to private studio work and set up their offices in Riverside. The website notes that “here they were free to set their own goals, meet their own standards and design in the direction their hearts and minds led them.” There’s a lot of history in Higgins, and the Wimmers are proud of their work and the company.
