After coming home from the hospital, Anne began a long period of rebuilding strength, initially in a wheelchair, weak from months of being essentially bedridden.

DOWNERS GROVE – Downers Grove residents will likely pay higher property taxes and fees next year, according to the village’s proposed 2014 budget. The financial plan outlined for 2014 shows increased spending on streets and sidewalks, among other infrastructure, along with increased payments to police and fire pensions. Residents’ property taxes, stormwater utilities and water rates would increase as well. The village posted the proposed budget, along with Village Manager David Fieldman’s budget memo, on its website Sept. 27. Altogether, the typical household in a $300,000 home would pay about $74.55 more to the village in 2014, Fieldman’s memo stated. Total 2014 revenues are budgeted at $111 million, and expenses are planned to be about $139 million. Fieldman states in his memo that expenses outpace revenues because the village plans to spend funds from previously sold bonds on capital infrastructure projects. The budget also plans the first noticeable increase to the general fund since 2008, when the recession began hurting revenues. “Over the next few years, in line with the trends discussed in the Long-Range

DOWNERS GROVE – A year ago, it would have been hard to imagine Anne Wagner accepting the homecoming queen crown in front of a cheering crowd. “They all came to their feet,” Anne’s mom, Amy Wagner recalled, describing North High School’s homecoming Sept. 27. “It was beautiful, the fact that these kids all got on their feet and cheered. She loved it, she loved every second of it.” Anne Wagner’s big moment came after missing more than a year-and-a-half of school beginning in February 2012 when she was diagnosed with leukemia. Anne, who also has Down syndrome, spent that time in and out of the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, enduring chemotherapy with the upbeat attitude that has endeared her to classmates. “Every time you walked in [to the hospital] she smiled, she’d greet you with a hug,” said friend and classmate Mary Doro. “She loved the attention she was getting. She was comforting to us, which was amazing. You feel like you should be comforting her, but it was the other way around.” But by October 2012, Wagner’s body was not keeping up with her spirits, and she

better,” she said. “I made that Facebook page and tried to get other people to talk about it. I told a few friends and they told everyone. It really branched out from there. And we used other social media sites like Twitter.” As word spread, more students at the school began to learn Anne’s story and draw inspiration from it, Doro said. “Today in Spanish class we were talking about different types of heroes, and a girl in my class mentioned her name,” Doro said. “And two weeks ago not a lot of people knew about her story, and now she’s a hero to a lot of people at DGN.” Anne has difficulty expressing herself verbally, but her friends and family said her personality and sense of humor show through. “She’s funny and fun to hang out with,” Doro said. “She loves to make faces and poses.” The 18-year-old is now on the less-intense maintenance cycle of chemotherapy. At home, she likes to do typical teenage things such as listening to Justin Bieber on her headphones. “She’ll make up her own words to the songs,” Amy Wagner said. “The day after [homecoming] and since then, I hear her singing ‘I’m homecoming, I’m homecoming. I have friends.’ “And it’s beautiful.”

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.

TAX TIPS

MEDICAL  YES, MEDICAL! Both medical insurance and medical expenses are important right now. October 1 was the first day of open enrollment for the new health care exchanges set up under The Affordable Health Care Act. Here are a few things to know: • Taxpayers covered under Medicare don’t have to do anything new • If you have good health insurance through your employer, you do not have to change. • The exchanges are for people who can’t afford insurance now and/or who might want to change carriers. There are tax credits for available for people who purchase insurance through the exchanges. In addition, open enrollment at your employer should be available now. You should review your insurance and that of your spouse – and check your premiums as well as your deductible and co pays – which always seem to be going up and up. In addition, there is now a limit of pretax medical of $2500 (where there was none in the past). STRAUSS TAX SERVICE can help you understand your medical insurance options and review the tax implications of both the insurance costs, the credits and possible medical deductions for your 2013 taxes.

Ask Dr. Webster

PREGNANCY AND X-RAYS Q: Are dental procedures, including x-rays, okay for pregnant women? A: They are not only safe, but the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recently issued recommendations that ob-gyns perform a basic oral health assessment on their patients at the earliest opportunity and encourage them to visit a dentist during pregnancy. Dian Cheng, MD, vice chair of The College’s Committee on Health Care of Underserved Women, which issued the recommendations earlier this year, said dental care is important because oral health problems can be linked with other diseases, including heart disease, respiratory infections and diabetes. According to The College, more than a third of all women report they haven’t see a dentist within the past year, and some 40 percent of pregnant women in the United States have periodontal disease and cavities. “We want ob-gyns to routinely counsel all of their patients, including pregnant women, about the importance of oral health to their overall health,” said Dr. Cheng. Hormonal changes like fluctuation in estrogen and progesterone levels in a pregnant woman’s body can affect the body’s response to the bacteria that cause gum infection. Bacterial infection could affect the placenta, the organ that links the fetus with the mother’s uterus. So regular visits to the dentist during pregnancy are important in protecting the health of your baby.

weave the mats. The result is a surprisingly soft mat about an inch thick that keeps those sleeping outside from laying on the cold, hard ground. “It’s certainly not an airspring mattress, but it beats sleeping on the floor or the ground,” Trinklein said. “And because they’re plastic, there’s no moisture absorbed.” The finished product looks like a fabric blanket from a distance, and the assorted bags give each mat a colorful, vibrant look. Oak Trace bus driver Ken Webster heard about the New Life for Old Bags project, which started at United in Faith Lutheran Church in Chicago, on the radio last winter.

DOWNERS GROVE – It takes a lot of work, but residents at the Oak Trace senior living community are turning bags that usually end up in the trash into something that can make a big difference for the homeless. Since April, the group has been participating in the New Life for Old Bags program, which takes used plastic bags and weaves them into padded sleeping mats. “It’s not often that you hear such a win-win situation,” said Margaret Trinklein, Oak Trace resident and volunteer. “It’s a chance to get rid of old plastic bags and help people who need it.” Volunteers start the process by cutting bags into strips. Then they tie the strips’ ends together to make plastic yarn called “plarn.” After that, residents like Trinklein use a large crochet needle about the thickness of a Sharpie marker to

Are you sufering with

Irritable Bowel, Celiac, Crohn’s or Colitis? Are you afraid to leave your house due to an unpredictable bowel? Have you tried diferent treatments but continue to sufer? Do you know the essentials for a healthy digestive system? Have you given up and decided to just live with it? he digestive system assimilates food (carbs, fats and proteins) to produce energy. It breaks down food into nutrient forms that your body can absorb. It uses enzymes, good bacteria and hydrochloric acid to break down food to a usable form. Your gut is a barrier, a tube that starts in your mouth, continues as your esophagus, small intestine, large intestine and rectum. 80% of your immune system is in your gut. When you break down the barrier (gut lining), toxins can “leak” into the blood stream leading to an immune response, inlammation and food allergies. Hippocrates, the father of medicine said… “look to the gut, there will you ind the origin of almost all human illness.”

Hi, my name is Dr. Jefrey E. Forzley with Lemont Natural Healthcare. I am a chiropractic physician and a holistic practitioner. I am passionate about helping people with chronic health conditions. I have been in practice for 28 years. As a holistic practitioner I evaluate the nervous system, immune system, endocrine system (hormones), diet essentials (Neuro-ÿMetabolic Care), manage the underlying cause and use natural therapies to manage digestive disorders. here are many essentials required for proper digestion. Let’s talk about a few… Zinc is necessary to make hydrochloric acid (HCL). HCL is needed to break down food (protein) in the stomach and for production of methyl groups. Methyl groups turn on tumor suppressor genes and turn of oncogenes leading to potential cancer growth. If HCL is deicient, this results in poor digestion and a many imbalances due to a deiciency of methyl groups. HCL deiciency also leads to growth of pathological bacteria like H. Pylori, which can cause gastritis, stomach ulcers and possibly stomach cancer. Probiotics (good bacteria) are normally found in the gut. Optimal levels are needed for a proper functioning digestive system. hese probiotics are also part of your immune

system. hey play an important role in the protective barrier in your gut. Your gut makes up 80% of your immune system due to this barrier system. Antibiotics kill pathologic bacteria and infections but they also kill good bacteria and cause gut dysbiosis (imbalance). his dysbiosis can lead to pathologic bacterial, yeast and parasitic infections as well as food allergies. Digestive system inlammation is associated with IBS, Crohn’s, Celiac and Ulcerative Colitis. It is due to stress, poor diet, toxins and food allergies. Digestive inlammation leads to production of cytokines (inlammatory cells). hese cytokines travel in the blood to the brain and inlame the brain cells. he brain (mesencephalon) in turn controls the digestive system. his leads to a vicious cycle resulting in an inlammatory cascade which exponentially worsens over time. Successfully managing digestive conditions involves balancing the nervous system, digestive system and immune system as well as improving the diet, decreasing gut inlammation and detoxifying the body. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a digestive disorder that includes abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating and alternating constipation and diarrhea. he cause is unknown but theories include toxic overload, intestinal infections, inlammation from stress and poor diet generalized condition of the digestive system poor signaling from the brain to the digestive system for proper function.

Medications to treat digestive disorders can weaken your immune system and lead to infections and immune degenerative conditions including cancer. hese medications may give you symptom relief but have side efects and DO NOT ADDRESS the UNDERLYING CAUSE of your condition.

Testimonial As someone who lives with chronic nausea, poor digestion and anxiety, I assumed I was out of options when countless doctors told me that there was nothing else they could do for me. hey told me it was likely all in my head. hen I visited Dr. Forzley and he told me from the initial consultation that he was very conident he could help me. I was so excited that I cried. No other doctor has ever been so much on my side. Now, 8 weeks into treatment, I am nausea free, anxiety free and my digestion is normal. I have started living a life I never thought I could live. My body is a machine, slowed and dirtied by processed foods and environmental toxins. But with the help of Dr. Forzley, my body is on the way back to an optimal state for long term health and happiness. Veronica M.

Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity is a digestive condition that involves gluten sensitivity like Celiac Disease but is not an autoimmune disorder. It involves digestive symptoms (pain, bloating…), fatigue, joint pains as well as neurologic symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, poor memory, brain fog and diiculty concentrating. Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are autoimmune diseases. An autoimmune disorder is when your immune system attacks your body instead of protecting it. here is NO CURE for autoimmune disorders. But you can calm down the immune response NATURALLY and decrease the efects of the tissue destruction. If you have an autoimmune disease like Celiac, Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis and you do not balance and calm down the autoimmune destruction, your immune system can attack other tissues and cause multiple autoimmune disorders. It is common for people with an autoimmune disorder to have multiple autoimmune diseases for this reason. Medications are not always the long term answer.

Holistic therapy can manage digestive conditions by: 1) inding and balancing the underlying cause and… 2) using natural therapies that work with your body.

SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA DOWNERS GROVE – The Downers Grove Fire Department will host a Night at the Firehouse and other activities during National Fire Prevention Week. A Night at the Firehouse goes from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. tonight at Station 5, 6701 Main St. Participants can take a station tour, see demonstrations of automobile extrication and rescue techniques, and get acquainted with the various uniforms and protective apparel worn by firefighters in a variety of emergency situations during the “Firefighter Fashion Show.” Firefighters also will show how quickly a fire can spread and the effectiveness of residential sprinklers in the sideby-side room demonstration. “Freddie” the robot fire truck will be on hand to visit with families, the fire safety trailer will be operating to help children practice escaping from fires and children can practice making 911 calls with

the real Downers Grove emergency dispatchers. Parents can take advantage of visiting with firefighters to learn how to keep their families safe from fire and other unintentional injuries common to children. Fire Prevention Week events will conclude with the Silent Parade, which pays tribute to all those who have lost their lives to fire and features fire department vehicles from many surrounding villages. All vehicles will display lights only; no sirens will be sounded. The parade will begin in Hinsdale at 7 p.m. Friday and pass through Downers Grove at Main Street and Maple Avenue at about 7:15 p.m. Spectators may assemble along Maple Avenue to view the parade and pay tribute by holding a flashlight as the cortege passes. The night will conclude with a memorial service and tribute to firefighters at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lisle, just south of Route 53 and Maple Avenue.

Downers Grove Township supports Red Ribbon Week Downers Grove Township has an active role in the community providing prevention education and leadership opportunities for community youth and their families. Currently, Downers Grove Township employs two Prevention Specialists that are funded by an Illinois Department of Human Services Substance Abuse Prevention Grant. Their work emphasizes educational tools to help reduce COMMUNITY the use and abuse of illegal VOICE substances and spread awareLauren ness of current trends concernAramburu ing alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Cathy Rager and Lauren Aramburu work closely with local schools to provide peer mediation, peer-to-peer life skills, community coalition work, Operation Snowball and Snowflake. Operation Snowball is an alcohol and other drug use prevention program focusing on leadership development to empower youth to lead drug-free lives. Similarly, Snowflake is a day-long event for seventh-grade students who explore leadership and communication skills, healthy decision-making, substance abuse prevention and how to resist negative peer influences. Downers Grove Township is proud to assist in the sponsoring of this year’s Community High School District 99’s Red Ribbon speaker. This year, Community High School District 99 along with other sponsors have invited Chris Herren, a former college and NBA basketball star who struggled with drug addiction and has been in recovery since 2008. You may be familiar with his story through the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary “Unguarded.” He also has written a book entitled “Basketball Junkie”. Chris shares his compelling story of his rise to NBA stardom and his tragic defeat to addiction. Currently in recovery, Chris travels nationwide to promote substance abuse awareness and education. This free event, “Rebound: An Evening with Chris Herren,” will be Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Downers Grove North Campus Auditorium. We encourage people to take this opportunity to educate themselves on the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs and become more aware of the trends in our community.

8LETTERS Local physicians in favor of Obamacare

Disappointed in the village

To the Editor: The irresponsible, infantile behavior of the Republicans has now proven to the world that they are utterly incapable of governing. Otherwise reasonable legislators have allowed themselves to be dictated by a small minority extremist faction of their party with the current disastrous results – the shutdown of the federal government of the United States. This, over the issue of Obamacare, the law of the land. We, as physicians, heartily endorse this law and welcome its implementation. We appeal to the Republican party, and to Peter Roskam, our congressional representative, to return to their senses and start becoming part of the solution, not part of the problem. Now is the time to work together to hone this new law into perfection and help to mold it into a well-crafted program that will help to provide affordable health care to the millions of our citizens that will benefit from it.

To the Editor: Sorry day for Downers Grove residents. We live in O’Brien Park and they are draining our pond and making it into a swamp or wetland. It has been a source for our wildlife to live and nest. Birds, ducks, geese, herons, egrets etc. Our mayor and the village staff refused to listen to all of us in the area. We just wanted the pond maintained or cleaned up. They instead chose the swamp. I am disappointed that it is draining as we moved here because of the pond. They will spend over $500,000 for this wetland. It is a shame beauty has to be dealt with in this manner. Many people have enjoyed this pond. We all went to meetings but were not heard, they had already made their decision.

Elizabeth Orsay, MD Charles Orsay, MD Downers Grove

Janice Sinnick, Downers Grove

Against same-sex marriage To the Editor: Towards the end of October, the Illinois House may vote on a truly regressive piece of

legislation: a bill that would legalize homosexual “marriage.” The ancient and primitive Greeks and Romans crassly valued homosexual relations. But eventually the people wised up and realized that was a mistake, and homosexual activity was again deemed unethical and was basically driven underground. Now many Democrats and even some Republicans are trying to take us back thousands of years to more primitive and decadent times, despite the fact that thinking people have known for centuries that homosexual activity is immoral and a bad legal precedent. What an upside-down world, where we are supposed to cater to the immoral! He who has eyes to see, let them see. The “logic” of heterophobic homosexuals is rapidly leading this society down a slippery slope to a more and more aberrant, disordered and irrational society. Anyone who thinks this is progress is deluding him/herself. Rome didn’t fall in a day. But it did fall. You may want to ask your state representative to vote against this ill-considered bill.

Downers Grove Music Club to host first benefit concert By ED MCMENAMIN

More online

emcmenamin@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – The Downers Grove Music Club has been a big part of supporting musicians and students in the village since 1927, and this year they are looking to make an even bigger impact. The organization is hosting its first Celebration of the Arts Benefit Concert at 7 p.m. Nov. 2 at the First Congregational Church, 1047 Curtiss St. Tickets for the benefit concert

are $25. The French-themed concert features six professional musicians playing a selection of works by Chopin, Debussy, Faure and Ravel. The show will also feature cellist and high school senior Andrew Moline, one of the club’s six

Rising Star winners last year. Following the concert, guests are invited to a silent auction and reception with coffee, wine and deserts by J. Fleming’s Absolutely Delicious. The Downers Grove Music Club awards six juniors as Rising Stars each year with a $400 prize and opportunity to perform a solo recital as a senior. Proceeds from the Nov. 2 event will benefit future Rising Stars awards. While the club is not offi-

cially affiliated with the school district, its Rising Stars solo performance opportunity has been key in encouraging young musicians in town for years, said South High School Fine Arts Department Chairman Glenn Williams. “The highest level of performance is playing as a solo performer,” Williams said. “So anytime you give students a highlighted venue to aspire for, it raises their level of preparation and performance.” In addition to the club’s Rising Stars program, it also runs the annual Piano Festival and hosts a regular schedule of music performances throughout town by professional musicians.

For many people in Downers Grove, their involvement with the club is generational. Downers Grove resident and current club education chair Gloria Salazar remembers her mom’s participation in the club. Both her son and daughter were awarded Rising Star awards as well. She said the club became a 501c3 charity about five years ago as the first step in its plan to grow, and now the benefit concert puts the plan into action. “It’s an opportunity to expand fundraising efforts an increase the monetary support that the club offers these kids,” she said. “The other side is promoting music within the community.”

Planning, revenues are anticipated to grow slowly,” Fieldman stated. Proposed general fund expenses for 2014 are about $43.57 million, an increase of 4.6 percent, or $1.94 million, over the current year’s budget. About $1.5 million of that increase is in personnel costs, including an $583,000 increase in police and fire pension costs. Employee wages are budgeted to increase by 2.4 percent, and benefits are budgeted to increase by 3.8 percent. The village finances pensions through property taxes, which are slated to increase by the $583,000 needed to cover the rising pension costs. The amount of property tax levy funds going toward village operations will stay the same. The total property tax levy is expected to be about $11.59 million in 2014, compared to about $11 million in 2013, meaning the owner of a $300,000 home would pay about $27.57 more in property taxes to the village. The village also plans increases for both the stormwa-

ter fee and the water fee. The stormwater fee would increase by about 10 percent, an increase of about $10 a year for the average residential property. The water fee would increase about 7.3 percent, or an additional $36.90 a year for the average residence. This is a smaller increase than the village originally predicted, according to Fieldman. “Due to several factors including efficiencies in the maintenance of the water system, the budget calls for lower-than-planned water rate increases while still maintaining the appropriate funding for capital improvements, operations and maintenance,” Fieldman wrote in his memo. The village anticipates the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, will cost the village an additional $86,000 in healthcare costs in 2014. The village is self-insured. The village will have its first budget workshop Saturday, and will have the first council meeting reading Tuesday. A public hearing is scheduled for Nov. 5, and the council plans to vote on the budget Nov. 12. It plans to adopt the tax levy Dec. 17.

I’m confused. Our larger washrooms now with the high toilets and the hand rails are those for people with disabilities, or for families who don’t want to take the time to use the regular stall? I can’t tell you how many times I have been cut off, with a mother and a child, as I’m trying to make my way to the back of the washroom where the bathroom stall for people with disabilities is supposed to be. Why that has been pushed to the back of most washrooms, I don’t understand. But it seems like it’s no longer a bathroom stall for people with disabilities, it’s a bathroom stall for people with families and children in tow, and I have to wait longer for that space while everybody goes ahead of me.

who made out financially on contracts with Chinese factories to manufacture CFLs for us will show some remorse when thousands of Americans develop central nervous system impairments from inhaling mercury into their lungs.

More on treaties The caller who states that Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution provides that ratified treaties become the law of the land is correct. However, that caller is incorrect in stating such law would trump the Bill of Rights. Any law, no matter how it is enacted, that violates any part of the Bill of Rights would be declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court and therefore be null and void. See Article 3, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution.

Light bulb risks Soon it will be illegal to sell any light bulb except the compact fluorescents that contain mercury. Eventually all homes will use these CFLs in all their light fixtures. When a CFL stops working, we hope that the resident will take it to a recycling center, but today’s busy citizens could be too busy and will throw it in the trash. And when more CFLs are dropped and break, will the special cleanup procedure be followed? We know that many folks will try, but believing that the vacuum cleaner solves every problem, will eventually use it, unaware that mercury will vaporize and pass right through any vacuum’s filter and go into the home’s air to be inhaled by the family. We hope that the relatively few Americans

Teaching right and wrong I do agree that public funds should not be used to support someone’s pornography habit, and am glad that the Westmont police arrested this individual. If the comment stopped there, I would be in full agreement with the writer, but I really don’t want any village raising my children. This liberal, entitlement mindset is the reason for the moral decay we are experiencing. Child rearing is the parents’ responsibility, and too many people don’t feel that it is. When I grew up it was the parents’ responsibility to feed their children, not the schools. Right and wrong were taught in the home and the See SOUND OFF, page 22

Ken Webster points out the bags from different stores that help make up a colorful sleeping mat on Monday at Oak Trace in Downers Grove.

• BAGS Continued from page 7 After attending the group’s third anniversary celebration and work session at the church in February, he brought the program to Oak Trace. “It’s one thing to throw a bottle in the recycling bin, it doesn’t take a lot of effort,” he said. “But these take about 80 hours per mat. For some of the homeless people, it might be the most valuable thing they have, because it’s something that’s handcrafted and it’s their’s. “To get where they are, they’ve had rough spots. To know somebody has put in that time and effort into the mats makes a big difference.” Webster works with about 10 to 20 residents every Wednesday on the mats. Webster, Trinklein and some others

even bring them home to crochet while they watch TV or a movie. So far, they’ve made about 10 mats. The New Life for Old Bags organization hopes to have 1,000 mats by Christmas, Webster said. Webster takes the mats to the church in Chicago, which distributes them to shelters throughout the greater Chicago area, he said. Webster said he has reached out to DuPage PADS and would also provide mats to organizations in Downers Grove, if requested. “There are people who do not deal well with shelters,” Webster said. “They don’t want to be inside because there are certain criteria they have to follow. There are people who could say it’s not for them. That’s who these mats for are for.”

It is no wonder the government is deeply in debt – they lay off 800,000 workers and then give them back pay as per past practices and union demands. So they not only spent all that money providing free vacations but also lost all the revenue from admissions and sale to the parks and monuments. I suppose if they stayed home a few more days SNAP cards would be issued. Vote them all out of office.

The library’s role Regarding the letter “Protect Children,” the man was charged with obscenity and disorderly conduct for viewing online pornography at the Westmont Public Library. Unfortunately, blocking software or filters don’t work well. They tend to freeze the computers and block legitimate websites. Library staff and I do what we can to discourage patrons from looking at pornography. Fortunately, most patrons don’t view pornography. And most adults do not use computers in the youth services department. They’re reserved for children who are safe at the library. We do care about children and do our best to protect them. We want them to grow up to be “moral and responsible citizens,” too.

Public money for alcohol You recently reported the Lisle Ale Fest was a “hit” and that the Lisle Chamber “made money” off the alcohol-promoting event. However, you failed to report that the alcohol-themed event was subsidized with public funds provided by the Village of Lisle. Public funds should not be used for events that promote the consumption of alcohol. We have more important things to do with our tax dollars in Lisle. Let’s start with acquiring the easements to fix the river levee and stop the flooding.

Officials dedicate children’s advocacy center in memory of kidnapped girl By NATHAN LURZ nlurz@shawmedia.com Members of the DuPage County Board, municipal officials, the DuPage County state’s attorney and Illinois and U.S. representatives and senators gathered together Sept. 17 to dedicate the newly constructed Jeanine Nicarico Children’s Advocacy Center. The center is named in memory of a 10-year-old Naperville girl who was abducted and murdered in 1983.

It will serve as a space to interview children who are possible victims of crime or abuse. Located at 422 N. County Farm Road in Wheaton, the cost to build the center was $5.6 million. It was funded by a State Block Grant and fines from the DuPage County Circuit Court. DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said the center will provide a comfortable place for people to open up about the “horrific things” they have

experienced. “The investigation of these physical and sexual abuse cases against children is very hard, it’s difficult,” he said. “And the investigators have a difficult job, but it’s a recognition that these cases require extra attention, they require expertise, and this facility is designed to help children and their families.” Nicarico was represented by her family, including her

Survey deceptive Draining of pond

The Lisle Library Survey is flawed. The library has been conducting a survey regarding its facilities, but has only made the survey available at the library and on its website. Notice of the survey was not mailed to taxpayers who fund the library but do not use it or do not use it often. The questions on the survey are leading and fail to inform the public of the costs of improvements suggested in the survey. Overall the survey is flawed because it is designed to limit input from the entire community and from all taxpayers. This survey should not be used as the basis of a strategic plan to raise taxes to expand the library.

Sad day for people who live around the O’Brien Park pond and visit the pond. It has been drained of all water and will be made into a swampland or wetland. Besides degrading the homes and area, the wildlife will have to find other sources of comfort, shelter and food. Many of us tried to fight the mayor and the village to no avail. They had their mind made up and we lost the battle. It is a shame nature could not just be left to enjoy. Downers Grove has made it a little less beautiful and friendly.

DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin unveils a picture of Jeanine Nicarico that will be displayed in the new Nicarico Children’s Advocacy Center to her parents, Tom and Patricia Nicarico.

• NICARICO Continued from page 23 parents Tom and Patricia. “Right now, my heart is overwhelmed and touched by all of you,” Patricia Nicarico said. Nicarico said she is glad that new resources are available to children in the county. She hopes having her daughter’s name on the building will send a message to children affected by crime or abuse that “there is a future for them and they also can be happy, lovely little children

like she was.” When asked if the building would be a condolence to the family, Tom Nicarico paused. “We’ve pretty much come to terms with what has happened and what’s gone on over the years,” Nicarico said. The family had experienced “tremendous support” from those around them, he said, and the center’s dedication was “just another extraordinary example of that.” “Is it making things any better? Not necessarily. But it’s wonderful, and very very much appreciated,” he said.

DuPage County Coroner Richard Jorgensen said that the heroin epidemic and the “bad, dirty disease” of addiction has taken more lives this year than any in recent memory with four more months to go until the year’s end. “Eventually, all people that are involved in serious drugs, and especially heroin, devolve in to a very, very serious spiral that ends up either in rehabilitation if you’re lucky, our criminal justice system if you’re also lucky, or death,” he said in a presentation to the DuPage County Board Sept. 24. Jorgensen said his office has identified 38 people who have died of heroin overdose so far this year, which is the same amount as the total number of heroin deaths last year. The 38 deaths do not include numbers from September or from the remainder of the year. He credited the spike in deaths to an influx of unusually high-strength heroin in the area, as opposed to a sudden rise in users. Jorgenson also noted the wide range of ages in those dead. The oldest person to die of heroin overdose was 64 and the youngest was 15. “This is a real problem in all ages, all municipalities and all socio-economic strata,” he said. Jorgensen said that, due to the increased purity of the product, heroin can now be smoked or snorted, instead of injected. That is a major driver of youth use, he said. Reliance on painkillers has also gotten some addicted to narcotics later in life. The deaths came from a wide range of different towns during the last two years, he said. Lombard saw the highest total, with nine deaths Jorgensen stressed that education and awareness were key, asking the County Board to get more involved in spreading the message. First responders and some families across the county will begin carrying Narcan, a

medication that can reverse an overdose, in the next month and a half, Jorgensen said. There are still some legal issues in the implementation of the 2010 Illinois state law that allows non-medical personnel to use the drug, according to Jorgenson, but he said he and the State’s Attorney’s Office were evaluating options. Board members Tony Michelassi and Elizabeth Chaplin suggested the county consider pushing school districts to re-introduce the DARE anti-drug program as well as extend the option to job sites to reach more members of the population. Board member Sam Tornatore said that in his work as an attorney, he noticed many heroin addicts brought in on drug charges were repeat offenders. The lack of job opportunities as a former felon played a major role in the return to addiction, he said. “Without people who are willing to give these kids a job, there’s a continuum of getting arrested,” he said. After the meeting, Jorgensen said that while education was important and the main focus of the county, there needed to be more attention paid to resources for existing addicts. “I think that’s what we’re lacking,” he said. “That’s part of the outreach I want to be involved in and we at the county want to be involved in ... We want to find organizations that do work with addicts and support those types of organizations.” Chairman Dan Cronin said that the for now, action at the county level on the “public health crisis” would likely come from the Department of Public Health. “They work on behavioral health and they are very good at dealing with some mental illness issues,” he said. “This would change their mission slightly, so we’d have to think this through.” “But this is a crisis and a crisis requires different approaches,” he said.

Restaurant reviews

Great Mediterranean food at Greek Islands LOMBARD – My first reaction upon entering the Greek Islands restaurant on a recent rainy, chilly evening was, “Wow, this place is popular.” The wide, brightly lit entryway just inside the front door opened up to several friendly looking dining rooms, each three-quarters full or more. As we were led to our table, my companion and I were amazed at the number of people who chose to venture out to the restaurant on 22nd Street despite the unpleasant weather. We soon found out why. Greek Islands combines great ethnic food, the professionalism to match any chain restaurant, and the charm and attentiveness of a high-quality local eatery. My knowledge of Greek cuisine beyond gyros was limited, but my companion pointed out a few options that sounded delicious. We shared a delectable appetizer of pork skewers (the provided lemon wedges really brought out the meat’s flavor), and then spent a good 15 minutes trying to decide between all the appealing options. Greek Islands had a “Create a Combo” menu section that ultimately helped us come to a decision. I selected the moussaka (baked eggplant and ground meat casserole) and the loukaniko (sausage flavored with orange rind). My companion chose the spinach cheese pie and the dolmades – stuffed grape leaves filled with rice, ground meat and herbs. The combos were served with a potato side baked in olive oil, lemon and oregano. Everything was tasty, but we each had a favorite. The moussaka had so many layers of flavor, I could easily see myself making a full meal of it on a future visit. My companion really enjoyed the spinach cheese pie, which stuffs filo dough with spinach and feta cheese. We’d earlier seen a server

Downers Grove North’s Sebastian Calvino (middle) looks for running room against Downers Grove South in the crosstown clash Friday night.

Calvino carries North in crosstown clash By ALEX SOULIER

asoulier@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – The 2013 version of the Downers Grove crosstown classic was full of surprises. Downers Grove North’s starting quarterback was one of them. With tight end Sebastian Calvino taking over for David Edwards, the Trojans took care of the Mustangs in an eventful 42-21 game. The first memorable moment came with Calvino earning the start, his first start under center as a varsity player. The next came before the game kicked off as Calvino led

before coaches and referees intervened. The Mustangs struck on the game’s first possession as quarterback Jordan Skach connected on a slant to receiver Javon Turner, who raced 86 yards for a touchdown. A power outage to one of the stadium’s light fixtures, another twist in the rivalry game, delayed play for about ten minutes; but, when action resumed, the proverbial lights flicked on and the Trojans looked like a different team. “It was a strange start,” Calvino said. “But we really controlled the tempo once

Kitchens for the Average Joe & Jane

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK SEBASTIAN CALVINO

Downers Grove North | Senior | Football Why Calvino was selected: Calvino started at quarterback and scored four touchdowns in a victory over crosstown rival Downers Grove South. A year removed since seeing playing time under center, Downers Grove North backup quarterback and tight end Sebastian Calvino took the field when the injured David Edwards could not start the game against Downers Grove South. Calvino led the Trojans to a 4221 victory, rushing for 211 yards and four touchdowns. Calvino, the Sears Appliance and Hardware Athlete of the Week, talked with sports reporter Alex Soulier about making the start and how Edwards helped him through it.

When did you find out that you were going to start in place of injured QB David Edwards? I didn’t know I was starting until about an hour before the game. David has a deep bruise on his leg; he suited up, but his leg was sore, he was experiencing tightness and he couldn’t go. I was taking reps at quartback all week, but I was pretty sure David was going to start.

What was going through your mind when coach Wander told you that you were going to start? I was a little freaked out, definitely a little freaked out – I was so nervous, it was such a huge game. But, my teammates

had my back, they all really came through. The blocking was phenomenal; every single play, there were huge holes to run through.

What was Edwards saying to you on the sideline during the game? He was such a huge help – feeding me encouragement and giving me tips. Even after I fumbled, he just said, ‘Forget about the last play, just go out there and get them on the next play.’

Had you ever played quarterback at the varsity level before? I was the backup last season, and I’ve been the backup this year, as well. Last year, I went in for a couple drives during a game against York. I scored a touchdown, but that was the extent of my varsity quarterback experience. But, I have been starting tight end for the last two years.

Have you put off doing your kitchen long enough? Is this the year you have vowed to do something with your cabinets? Have the horror stories of kitchen remodeling made you afraid to even think about it? With prices approaching and surpassing $100,000 for full kitchen remodeling, it is no wonder the Average Joe and Jane feel a little overwhelmed. Enter Kitchen Tune-Up! This locally owned (Downers Grove) National Franchise has been offering minor kitchen remodels for 19 years. Marty Ceranec, the owner, has won numerous awards from KTU for Sales, Customer Service, and Creativity. He received the highest award in 2000 when he won National Franchise of the Year and in addition, is a two time Angies List Super Service Award Winner. We offer Kitchen Solutions for Any Budget. “I think some people get sticker shock when they look at the price of redoing an entire kitchen and are overwhelmed. We work with clients every day who have the same anxieties,” says Marty. KTU can provide anything from the Signature Kitchen Tune-Up to a full blown design and remodel. “The bulk of our work last year was in refacing and door replacement. Door replacement doesn’t change the color, but replaces old particle board doors with new solid raised panel doors utilizing concealed hinges. Refacing, on the other hand, enables one to change their oak cabinets to maple cabinets without buying all new cabinetry,” said Marty. “These two options also save landfill space because we are saving the boxes.” Why have they been so successful? Simple things like showing up on time and returning phone calls which is often lacking in the remodeling industry. I have chosen to keep the business small so I am involved in every job with my three long time installers. By doing this we have become well known as experts in minor kitchen remodeling.” Kitchen Tune-Up also offers cabinetry upgrades such as glass doors, tipout trays, soft-closing dovetail drawers, and full extension rollouts as well as counters in laminate, solid surfaces, granite and quartz (Cambria) “The Best Counter Top Around.” When questioned about any regrets, Marty replies, “We often Call Marty Now For a Free Estimate get calls to update the kitchen when the owner is ready to sell. We always wonder why they See Our Work At didn’t do it earlier so they could have enjoyed it sooner.” www.kitchentuneup.com

WESTMONT – An offensive outburst helped Westmont record its first football win of the season on Friday. Quarterback Tim Doll finished with more than 300 yards passing, more than 100 yards on the ground and had a hand in all six Sentinels’ touchdowns as Westmont cruised passed Dwight 42-13. For head coach Otto Zeman, the offensive explosion and comfortable victory was a welcomed change of pace from the first five games. “Our offense finally played like we were capable of playing,” Zeman said. “We have been in a few tight games this season and experienced our share of unfortunate circumstances. Winning on homecoming was really nice and we got to play a lot of players who might not ususally get an opportunity.” Zeman attests that a few starters have been hampered by injuries, forcing younger athletes to assume leading roles. Additionally, the Sentinels were two minutes away from beating Reed-Custer in Week 4, but fumbled while taking a knee to run out the clock, then gave up a touchdown and two-point conver-

the offense settled down in the first half and started playing fast, physical football.” North starting quarterback David Edwards suffered a deep leg bruise, according to coach John Wander, during the Sept. 27 game against Lyons Township and was declared inactive an hour before the South game. Calvino was quickly thrust into action. All-purpose player Vontae Diggs tied the score at 7-7 when he took a direct snap, sprinted 16 yards, and leaped over two players into the end zone. Later in the half, with the score still 7-7, the North defense forced an intercep-

But the offense put Dwight away early on Friday. On the first series of the game, Doll drove the offense down the field and connected on a 22-yard touchdown pass to receiver and running back Danny LoGiurato. The Sentinels opted to go for two but could not convert. On their next possession, the Sentinels needed only a few plays before Doll hit Greg Pietrzak streaking down the sideline for a 45-yard touchdown pass. The duo connect-

ed again in the first quarter, giving Westmont a 20-0 lead. In the second half, it was more of the same for Westmont. Doll recorded an 89yard touchdown pass to Seth Torrens and ran two scores in on his own. “We hadn’t really jelled on offense up until this point,” Zeman said. “I think we showed what we were capable of and hopefully that momentum will power us through the rest of the season.” Westmont has another big game this week as it will trav-

el to Lisle to play the rival Lions. Kickoff is at 7:15 Friday at Benedictine University.

tion and the offense took over on the South 38-yard line. Calvino and company marched downfield and the quarterback’s 1-yard touchdown run gave the Trojans a 14-7 lead. The Mustangs answered with a touchdown, but Diggs took the ensuing kickoff 81 yards for a score, giving the Trojans a 21-14 advantage they would not relinquish. “With a couple players hurt, I kind of wanted to show off some of my different skills tonight,” Diggs said. “They squibbed the kick to the left side, opening the right half of the field. My 10 teammates threw some good blocks and I made a play.” “Vontae can do a little bit of everything,” Wander said. “He’s a big part of our offense, he plays defense and he had a

big kickoff return for a touchdown tonight.” In the second half, the Trojan offense ran roughshod over the Mustangs’ defense. North received the ball first in the third quarter, driving 68 yards behind 14and 16-yard runs by Calvino, whose 2-yard option keeper gave the Trojans a 28-14 lead. “I was definitely a little nervous before the game,” Calvino said. “But my teammates had my back and David [Edwards] was a huge help – encouraging me and giving me advice.” Calvino finished with 211 yards and four rushing touchdowns, as North pulled away in the second half. “We call [Calvino] our little Tim Tebow,” Diggs said. “He stepped up tonight and played a great game at quar-

terback.” Wander seconded Diggs’ sentiments, but added that Edwards will play next week if his leg heals. For South, it was the team’s first loss in four games, dropping them to 3-3 overall while remaining 3-0 in the West Suburban Gold. “You have to give a lot of credit to North’s offense,” head coach Mark Molinari said. “They were able to successfully run on us all night. Our defense has to be better.” Molinari gave credit to his offense, which hung in the game until the third quarter. Skach threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns, Turner totaled 166 receiving yards and a score, and running back Alec Arvanitakis had a receiving and a rushing touchdown.

8BREAKOUT PLAYERS

By ALEX SOULIER Every football season brings with it change as former players graduate and new names gain recognition for their exploits on the fields. From seniors having their best seasons yet to underclassmen making big impacts, these breakout players are helping their teams achieve.

Alec Arvanitakis School: Downers Grove South

Position: Running Back Year: Senior Impact: Alec Arvanitakis is the horse that powers the Mustangs’ offense. Through six games, Arvanitakis has rushed for 483 yards and six touchdowns and has shown the ability to catch the ball out of backfield and turn up the sideline. While he is considered a versatile, breakaway back, Arvanitakis has proven to be a work horse, totaling at least 16 carries in five of the Mustangs’ six games this year.

Downers Grove South’s Alec Arvanitakis runs with the ball during Friday’s game against Downers Grove North. dual-sport athlete sprints and runs hurdles for the Trojan track and field team, but has carved out a place as a featured running back in the football team’s offense. Running an option offense, quarterback David Edwards frequently tucks the ball and turns up field, but Creamer has shown flashes of brilliance whenever he gets the ball in his hands and has steadily improved his blocking after primarily playing special teams last season.

Daniel Logiurato has been a force for opposing teams trying to contain him. In an otherwise disappointing season for Westmont, Logiurato has found a way to produce big plays every week, including a 22-yard touchdown reception in the Sentinels’ 42-13 victory over Dwight. “Danny isn’t very big, but he hustles and has a good feel for what’s happening on the football field,” Westmont head coach Otto Zeman said of the 5-foot-9 LoGiurato. “He’s very athletic and has a lot of heart.”

Brad Sznajder School: Benet Academy Position: Running back Year: Junior Impact: Porter Ontko was the main man out of the backfield for the Redwings early in the season, which led to average performances in the first two games of the season for Sznajder. But when Ontko was lost for the season with an ACL injury, Sznajder broke out.

Bears should win, but can’t take Giants lightly Hub Arkush

Anyone who thinks the 0-5 New York Giants can’t come into Soldier Field Thursday night and knock off the 3-2 Bears knows absolutely nothing about football. There are more than 20 players on this Giants team with Super Bowl rings they won together just two seasons ago, and a handful of them have won a pair of rings together. One of those two-time world champions is the quarterback, Eli Manning, who also is a two-time Super Bowl MVP. That’s one more of each than his more famous older brother, Peyton. With a supporting cast that includes All Pros Victor Cruz, Chris Snee, Justin Tuck, Jason Pierre-Paul, Antrel Rolle and a number of other near Pro Bowlers, Manning and com-

pany can beat anybody on any day if they show up and play their game. The good news for Bears fans is the Giants haven’t shown up yet this year, and nothing’s happened in the past few weeks to suggest they will for the Bears. A huge part of the Giants problems this year is Manning is having his worst year as a pro, completing just 53.7 percent of his passes. He’s also thrown 12 interceptions versus just eight touchdowns. Much of that is due to the fact that Manning’s been dodging bullets all season long. He already has been sacked 15 times. Another huge problem for Manning and the Giants has been the almost complete lack of a running game. The Giants rank 32nd, dead last in the league, on the ground. Their No. 1 back, David Wilson, who has just 146 rushing yards on 44 carries for a 3.3 average and one touchdown on the season, left Sunday’s Eagles game with a neck injury and is unlikely to be available.

If Wilson can’t go, the running game will be in the hands of veteran Brandon Jacobs, who was on the street just a couple of weeks ago. One area where the Giants can hurt the Bears, and where the Bears have been vulnerable, is with an extremely talented stable of receivers. Cruz and Hakeem Nicks are both No. 1 receivers, and Reuben Randle was drafted by the Giants last year out of LSU in the second round a little more than a dozen spots after the Bears tabbed Alshon Jeffery. Brandon Myers is the tight end the Giants wanted more than Martellus Bennett, signing him as a free agent from the Raiders and allowing Bennett to move on. Like Wilson though, Myers is battling injury, a bum ankle, and may or may not be available. The Giants offensive line has been awful this year. With the Bears struggling on the defensive line, this could be the key matchup of the game. Defensively, the Giants are as talented as any team in the league

but have struggled all season long to produce. Tuck, Pierre-Paul and Mathias Kiwanuka form as feared a pass rush trio as you’ll find in the league, but they’re dead last in sacks. The Giants were struggling so badly at linebacker with Spencer Paysinger and Keith Rivers outside and Mark Herzlich in the middle that they just traded for Jon Beason. Cornerbacks Corey Webster and Prince Amukamara, and safety Rolle were playing in the Super Bowl 18 months ago, and this year are joined by safety Ryan Mundy. If Wilson is unable to go, the Giants also will be without their kickoff returner. Randle has been mediocre at best returning punts with a 6.3 average. Unless the Giants make a miraculous turnaround, this is a game the Bears should win. But take them lightly and wake the sleeping giants, and this team has more than enough talent to really ruin your night.

with that strategy occurs if Rodgers suffers a minor injury and the starter becomes unclear in a given week. You’d be better off securing a backup with some upside, such as Pryor or Geno Smith. 4. Tony Romo (22.2): Moving Romo to No. 4 is probably an overreaction to his performance against Denver. No matter which quarterback you put in this slot, there is a big falloff from Rodgers. If you don’t have one of the top three guys, your backup quarterback needs to be a more viable option. The perfect complement to Romo is

Alex Smith. He faces Denver during Romo’s bye week. 5. Matt Ryan (20.4): Something is not right with Atlanta, but Ryan’s fantasy numbers have been consistent. The Falcons are off this week. Consider Andy Dalton for your No. 2 (at Buffalo). 6. Andrew Luck (18.6): We stand corrected about the Colts and Luck. They’ve beaten Seattle and San Francisco, and they are for real. The Colts are off during week eight when Pittsburgh travels to Oakland. Consider Pryor or Roethlisberger. 7. Matthew Stafford (19): Because Stafford has an injury history, you will need a solid backup. Avoid Eli Manning and Colin Kaepernick due to a common bye week (9). 8. Tom Brady (14): Although his current points per game don’t warrant a roster spot, we feel there will be improved production. Have

a backup plan just in case. Consider Sam Bradford. 9. Phillip Rivers (22.4) He is the third-leading scorer among QBs, but many fantasy owners still have their doubts. The recommendation would be to believe the trends and make him your starter. Pair him with Eli or Geno Smith. 10. Robert Griffin III (18): Griffin is susceptible to injury, so be sure to pair with someone like Can Newton, Alex Smith or Russell Wilson. 11. Cam Newton (13.6): It’s been a weird year for Newton: one great week and four stinkers. Might be a good “buy-low” option. 12. Michael Vick (24.2 in 4.25 games)/Nick Foles (26.7 in .75 games): One of these guys will score some points, but we get the funny feeling that the starter is going to be a weekly guessing game, at least for a while. Wilson, Smith or Joe Flacco are options.

Five weeks into the season, injuries are beginning to mount. If you play in a 12-team league or larger, an injury to your starting quarterback can greatly diminish your shot at a title. If you have an unreliable backup, your season might be over. The injury bug already has bitten some quarterbacks: Michael Vick and Jake Locker are temporarily sidelined and Brian Hoyer is out for the season. Matt Schaub and Christian Ponder are in danger of losing their starting jobs. Expect more drama as the season unfolds. Although your waiver wire probably has been picked clean of all running backs with a pulse, there still may be some good quarterbacks available. If you want to contend for a fantasy

championship, you’d be wise to have a back-up plan at QB. Fantasy footballs top 12 starting quarterbacks and possible backup strategies: 1. Peyton Manning (31.8 ppg): Manning has been incredibly durable, so if your No. 2 quarterback is someone like Tony Romo, you should be looking to trade him for a solid position player. The perfect backup for Manning is Terrelle Pryor. The Broncos’ bye is week 9 when the Raiders play the Eagles. 2. Drew Brees (23.8): Pair Brees with Ryan Tannenhill of Miami. He faces Buffalo during the Saints bye week (seven). 3. Aaron Rodgers (22.3): The Packers already had their bye and Rodgers has a very limited injury history. Consequently, you might be tempted to pair Rodgers with the Packers’ second stringer, Seneca Wallace. The problem

DRAWING WITH MARK Let’s practice drawing a ship for expLoring! Start with basic shapes.

Following Columbus C by anne raih | More Content Now

Sketch the sails using the basic shapes as guides:

hristopher Columbus was a brave explorer who crossed the ocean in 1492 looking for a new world. Each year, we celebrate Columbus Day to remember the man who was one of the irst Europeans to explore the Americas. Columbus sailed from Spain to Hispaniola, which is now the Dominican Republic, with three boats –the Niña, the

Pinta and the Santa Maria. On the way over, Columbus and his crew battled many hardships, from storms and shipwrecks to diseases. But when they arrived in the Americas, they discovered a land that was more beautiful than they could have imagined, and one that was already inhabited by the Taino people, who had lived there for centuries. Take a look at the map below, and follow Columbus’ boats as they make the treacherous journey across the ocean.

Set sail with Columbus first, draw a line that follows Columbus’ ships as they sailed across the ocean from Spain. next, label each of the following names on their appropriate location on the map. If you need help, find a world map to use as a reference. Have fun curving the lines like a real sailing ship:

With Halloween and other holiday parties coming up, now is a good time to decide what you’ll be serving your guests. Everyone loves dessert, so mini treats — especially cupcakes — can be a great addition to a party or other celebration, such as a birthday or anniversary. Farozan Jivraj, an experienced pastry chef and owner of Cupcake Novelties cake boutique in Winchester, Va., offers some tips on how to get a gourmet look (and taste) at home: Start with a basic recipe:“If someone is looking to make cupcakes the easy way, they can start from a basic vanilla cupcake recipe and add flavors to the frosting to jazz it up,” Jivraj says. “Various extracts are also available and can be added to a vanilla cupcake recipe to vary the flavor palate.” improve a box mix: If you’d rather go the box mix route than make cupcakes from scratch, Jivraj recommends using butter instead of oil for a richer taste, adding a box of instant pudding to improve cake density and substituting flavored juice, milk or buttermilk for water for a flavor kick. make your own frosting: “It is easy to make and tastes much better than storebought icings,” Jivraj says. Try a simple swirl of icing with themed decorations to make your cakes stand out. Don’t forget to decorate: If you aren’t the best at piping or using fondant, candy comes in handy. “Fruit roll-ups are flexible and pliable enough to be shaped easily. Sixlets, M&Ms, Tootsie Rolls and licorice can all be used to create different elements of decoration,” Jivraj says. Want a mix of different desserts? Make Rice Krispie Treats, chocolate-dipped marshmallows, caramel chocolate popcorn or chocolate-dipped graham crackers topped with sprinkles.

5 new ways to enjoy this traditional, tangy drink

By Saimi Bergmann More Content Now

We look forward to it all year — the sweet tang of apple cider from local orchards. Cider is satisfying cold, straight from the jug. It’s comforting hot, laced with cinnamon, sipped from a mug. And it’s kid-friendly when combined with yogurt in a smoothie. But don’t stop there. A little experimenting led us to five more ways to enjoy this autumnal specialty.

1. Fall fondue Cheese and apples have long been a natural pairing. Could they be combined? Yes. I added the crisp, fruity notes of cider to the mellow, aged flavors of cheese to create a fall fondue. Just bring cider to a simmer, slowly add shredded cheeses, and finish with a splash of vinegar and swirl of brandy. Integrated, yet distinct flavors compete for attention with each dip into the fondue pot.

Cheese And Cider Fondue n n n n n

1 cup cider 4 cups grated cheese* 1 1/2 T cornstarch 2 t apple cider vinegar 1 T apple schnapps or apple brandy Put grated cheese and cornstarch in bowl. Toss to coat cheese. Bring cider to a simmer over medium heat. Add cheese a handful at a time, stirring until melted between additions. Continue cooking until fondue just starts to bubble, 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add vinegar and stir. Take fondue off heat and stir in brandy. Pour into fondue pot and keep warm. Serve with cooked slices of kielbasa or other spicy sausage, bread cubes or crostini, broccoli florets or slices of tart apple. *Most recipes call for Gruyere, but $18 a pound seemed a little steep. We substituted half Swiss and half sharp cheddar.

— Adapted from a recipe at www.bonappetit.com

2. Move over, maple This one rates a rave. Cider syrup is a luscious drizzle for both sweet and savory dishes. It is equally at home drizzled on pancakes or over roasted pork. It’s so easy, you can make a batch on a weeknight to dress up baked acorn squash, then used the leftovers the next

morning on your oatmeal. Don’t be tempted to omit the lemon juice. Without its contrasting tartness, the syrup has a cloying single-note sweetness.

Cider Syrup n n n n

1/4 cup sugar 2 t cornstarch 2/3 cup apple cider or juice 1 cinnamon stick (1-1/2 inches) n Dash ground nutmeg n 2 t fresh lemon juice n 1 T butter In a small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and cider until smooth. Add cinnamon stick, then bring to a boil, stirring constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes. Mixture will thicken. Remove from heat and stir in nutmeg and butter until smooth.

3. Serve a cider-tini Cider serves as the anchor for a sweet, buttery martini, served in a glass rimmed with cinnamon sugar. The proportions of the three ingredients — cider, vodka and butterscotch schnapps — can be altered to suit individual tastes. Although some recipes call for equal parts, I found the schnapps tended to dominate. My favorite variation used 4 parts cider to 2 parts vodka to 1 part schnapps.

4. Tame the cranberry Most cranberry sauce and relish recipes call for an appalling

amount of sugar. You can reduce that amount if you substitute apple cider for the water.

Cider-Cranberry Sauce

n 1 cup cider n 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar n 12-ounce package fresh cran-

berries Simmer all ingredients in a sauce pan until cranberries pop open, stirring frequently.

5. Beginner coffee cake Starting with a boxed mix calms the fears of the most novice of bakers. But with a little “doctoring,” nobody will ever suspect that this apple coffeecake wasn’t made from scratch. You can turn a boxed cinnamon quick bread into a fall favorite with two easy additions. For the batter, follow package directions but substitute cider for the water. I tried this idea while experimenting with cider for other recipes, but thought the result still needed a boost of apple

flavor. So, when the package directions said to pour half the batter in a pan and sprinkle on cinnamon sugar, I added a layer of finely chopped apple, poured the rest of the batter on top, as directed, and success! The apple added moisture and a needed tartness to the sweet filling. Perfect for brunch or even dessert.

Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake n n n n n n

2 eggs 3 T oil 3/4 cup cider 1 box cinnamon quick bread 3/4 cup cider 1 medium-sized tart apple, peeled and finely chopped Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease or spray a loaf pan. Put eggs in large bowl, whisk until blended. Add oil and cider, beat again. Add cake mix and stir until most lumps are gone. Pour about half the batter into the greased pan. Sprinkle on about 2/3 of the cinnamon sugar provided with the mix. Add the chopped apple in an even layer. Pour the rest of the batter on top, carefully smoothing with a spoon to cover the filling. Sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon topping on top. Bake for about 45 minutes. Baking times will vary depending on the type of pan you use.
