White’s exit means BHS will have fourth principal in five years By ALEX SOULIER

The Lukancic Middle School auditorium in Romeoville is filled with parents and Valley View School District staff Monday night to comment on the recent resignation of Bolingbrook High School Principal Michael White. countable for my actions.” Others described White as “tough but fair,” an “agent of change” and a man “committed to creating a safer learning environment” at the school. A few said he has overstepped boundaries with disciplinarian tactics, even labeling him a “bully.” On Jan. 17, Valley View School District announced White had resigned, effective at the end of the school year. Within days, a group formed under the name “Support Mr. White!” and vowed to host a rally Friday night and turn out for Monday’s meeting in protest of White’s resignation, claiming White “does

not want to leave BHS” and he “feels extremely limited due to the policies put in place by [Superintendent James] Mitchem and the school board.” The group also put together a petition asking the school board to reject White’s resignation. The petition garnered 1,200 signatures and was presented to the board Monday night. Still, following two and a half hours of public testimonials Monday night, the Valley View board voted 5-2 to approve White’s resignation. Valley View President Steve Quigley told the crowd the Bolingbrook principal made the decision on his own

accord and now all parties must move forward. He said contrary to multiple commenters’ claims, the district did not force White’s hand. “We will not go backwards,” Quigley said. “At no point was [White] ever asked to step aside – not by me, not by [Superintendent James Mitchem]. At no point has he asked us to rescind his resignation. Those are indisputable facts.” When White finally addressed the board and the crowd, he spoke of a disconnect between himself and the Valley View Board of Education, which led to a falling out. “My decision [to resign] was that I felt that I was lim-

ited in my ability to do my job as a building principal,” White said. “That means when curriculum is not a part of my daily routine I’m not doing the full job that is required of me. “I felt I had reached the limits of what I could do at Bolingbrook High School. So, I submitted my resignation after many, many, many conversations. Don’t think this was just a one-time deal. I decided it was time for me to move on as a result of the fact I couldn’t get senior leadership to make some decisions that would help me do my job.” White, who retired as principal of Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor, Mich., after the 2011-12 school year, came to Bolingbrook High School in July 2012. His resignation will take effect at the end of the current school year. The board did not address a search process for the next principal at the meeting. When hired, they will be fourth principal to lead Bolingbrook High School in five years.

BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook High School senior Robiel Barredo approached the podium at Lukancic Middle School on Monday, imploring the Valley View School District Board of Education to reject the resignation of Principal Michael White. “I have learned through three principals during my time at Bolingbrook High School,” Barredo said. “After freshman year, it was never clear what my purpose as a student was – I tried to keep my grades up and stay out of trouble, despite the constant disruption of some students.” One of more than 30 students, parents and residents to address the crowd during the public comments portion of Monday’s scheduled meeting, Barredo – like many of the speakers – voiced his support for White. “When Mr. White came, I was indifferent, considering him another principal that was assigned to a school with a bad reputation,” Barredo continued. “But within a week, I saw this man challenge the audacity of the student population. He made it clear to me what my purpose was: to learn, to get a quality education and be held ac-

Political back-and-forth begins in race for Republican nod in 81st District By ED MCMENAMIN

emcmenamin@shawmedia.com State Rep. Ron Sandack’s Republican primary challenger Keith Matune says Sandack invited him to a meeting at a Downers Grove restaurant Jan. 19 to tell him members of the House Republican Organization will soon release unflattering personal information about Matune. Sandack, who has been supported by the House Republican Organization in his re-election bid, said that the meeting was a courtesy and that there was nothing he could do to stop the information from coming out. “I thought I was being neighborly with Mr. Matune and giving him a quiet heads-up, and he instead issued a factually erroneous press release,” Sandack said in a phone interview Jan. 21. “I’m not responding to that nonsense. “He’s tripping all over himself trying to explain himself. He has a pretty loose grip on the facts and reality, and I don’t want to get into a back and forth with him. It doesn’t

serve my purposes. I’m the representative of the 81st District, and I’m interested in continuing to talk about the issues Keith that matter to Matune [residents] in the 81st.” The 81st District includes parts of Bolingbrook, Downers Grove, Westmont, Woodridge, Lisle, Naperville and Darien. Matune, a Downers Grove school board member, issued a press release last week. It alleges Sandack was implying a threat to release information contained in a Chicago Tribune blurb from 1991 that stated “a Woodridge man was arrested and charged with being a fugitive from justice after police discovered he is wanted on a larceny charge in Montgomery County, Va. Police said they stopped a car driven by Keith R.W. Matune, 21, of 5921 Jackson Drive early Friday on the 6200 block of Belmont Road for driving with bright headlights. Matune, who was taken to Du

Page County Jail, will be extradited to Virginia, police said.” Matune’s press release claims that during the inci- Ron dent, officers re- Sandack fused to comply with the extradition request and that he was not placed under arrest and was promptly released. “Keith’s attorney immediately made full restitution on his behalf and all charges were dropped within 24 hours,” the press release states. Mugshots obtained and published online by the Illinois Observer contradict Matune’s account that he was not arrested in the incident. The mugshots appear to show Matune holding a DuPage County Sheriff’s Department placard with the date mentioned in the newspaper blurb – May, 7, 1991. When asked about the mugshots last week, Matune said, “I was going on my recollection. Yes, there’s mugshots and it doesn’t look good. I don’t recall any of that stuff. I’m not saying

it didn’t happen. I don’t recall because it was taken care of so quickly.” Matune described the 1991 larceny incident as a misunderstanding in his press release. “Keith unintentionally wrote a $150 check that was returned for insufficient funds while attending college out of state,” the press release said. “While home for the summer, Keith was stopped by local police for a broken headlight and was notified during the stop that there was an out of state warrant issued for an insufficient check. “Keith was completely surprised and unaware of the situation. The officers refused to comply with the extradition request; Keith was not placed under arrest and was promptly released. Keith’s attorney immediately made full restitution on his behalf and all charges were dropped within 24 hours.” According to Matune, the Illinois State Police database shows no record of arrest, which is reflected in his employment applications. Further, as a condition of working in public schools, Ma-

tune said he has passed a minimum of four background checks with fingerprinting. In the press release, Matune apologized for the “missteps made as a college student, including an indecency charge during a fraternity prank,” it reads. “These incidents happened more than 20 years ago and since that time he has become a husband, father, Illinois teacher and IHSA coach of the year.” “Keith feels the most important part of this election are the specific issues that impact the daily lives of middle class families, not the politics of personal destruction. He is running to be the next state representative to fight for all Illinois families, because of the challenges they face by the heavy burden of taxation, high unemployment and the increasing inability to afford college for our children. “These are the most pressing issues facing the people of the 81st District, not the youthful mistakes of a college student more than two decades ago.” The General Primary Election will be held March 18.

Your 1099s require special attention this year. Your tax exempt interest is now included on your 1099 INT and your tax exempt dividends from mutual funds should be on your 1099DIV. In addition, brokerage firms often send out initial – and then revised – tax statements. Your 1099B will show the gross proceeds of your stock or mutual fund sale. Even if you transferred from one fund to another (or if you changed funds for your children), it is still considered a sale in the eyes of the IRS. You must figure out the cost basis of the purchase; this may be shown in Box 3 but may or may not be correct! This requires some (or all) of the following: • Date and Cost at purchase • Dividend reinvestments if any • Fair market value at date of death for inherited investments. • Additional purchases (or prior sales) The IRS will now be tracking cost basis shown on 1099Bs and comparing it to what is shown on your tax return. STRAUSS TAX SERVICE can check all your 1099s. We will prepare your 2013 tax return, answer your many questions for 2014 and save you money. We are located at 624 62nd Street, Downers Grove and are open from 9 AM - 9 PM daily.

when he met with two men in a blue Chevy Avalanche parked near the Bolingbrook Promenade,” Weber said. Quintana, 25, of the 300 block of South Thornwood Drive in Lindenhurst, got out of the Avalanche carrying a 60-quart cooler, which Weber

said “struck [the agents watching] as unusual in the cold weather.” Quintana tried to run when agents moved in but was grabbed quickly, authorities said. The cooler had three kilos of heroin inside, Weber said.

Two Joliet men were allegedly inside the Avalanche: Santiago Diaz, 39, of the 300 block of North Larkin Avenue, and Jesus M. Rodriguez, 35, of the 3000 block of Dan Ireland Drive. Both were taken into custody. Weber said the vehicle will be seized.

BHS Best Buddies dedicate new mural SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA BOLINGBROOK – Members of Bolingbrook High School’s Best Buddies program on Thursday formally dedicated a two-piece mural they created with some help from BHS art students and staff as well, as staff from the Bolingbrook Sherwin-Williams store. With Sherwin-Williams Assistant Manager Katie De-

tro and Decoration Product Specialist Sharae Neff looking on, former Principal Michael White cut the symbolic ribbon on the mural which hangs on the wall of the first landing in the D-Wing stairway. “What a beautiful piece of art,” White said. “You have made this staircase turn from dim to bright.” The right side of the mural

contains the Best Buddies’ slogan “We change the world one friendship at a time” along with signatures of Best Buddies members. “Best Buddies is an extra curricular club that supports friendships between individuals with intellectual disabilities and their peers,” Best Buddies President Maddie Rollins said before she introduced White.

BOLINGBROOK – Police say a suspect in Bolingbrook did not go quietly Jan. 19. Shortly before 3 p.m., Bolingbrook officers stopped a vehicle occupied by Michael E. Medeiros, 19, and Charles R. Tolliver, 25, near Bedford and Rockhurst roads, according to Lt. Mike Rompa. Rompa said Medeiros and Tolliver “continuously” threatened the officers and disobeyed their commands before attacking them. “One officer was bitten

three times by Medeiros, who also attempted to remove the officer’s firearm from the holster during the struggle,” Rompa said. After both suspects were secured, they were booked into the county jail. Medeiros, of the first block of Vermont Circle in Bolingbrook, was charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault, obstructing a police officer and resisting arrest. Tolliver, of the 200 block of Charlotte Lane in Bolingbrook, was charged with aggravated assault, battery and resisting arrest.

PRIMER ON GUM DISEASE

Q: Why should I worry about gum disease? A: Periodontal, or gum, disease is a serious concern. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. Like other physical ailments, the earlier it’s identified, the more successful will be the outcome. Gum disease ranges from mild, called gingivitis in its beginning stage, to severe. Regular visits to a dentist are important for many reasons, one of them being that the onset of gum disease is not detectable to the untrained eye. The primary cause of gum disease is the accumulation of plaque on and between teeth and gums. You can get rid of most plaque with brushing and flossing. When plaque hardens, it’s called tartar. The bacteria in tartar produce toxins that attack the gum tissue and bones that support your teeth. This is the gingivitis phase of the disease. When bacterial infection of the gums spreads well below the gum line, the condition is called periodontitis. That’s when the gum starts to pull away from the teeth, creating pockets. Gum disease can cause bleeding and swollen gums and can cause bone loss in the jaw. Ultimately, it leads to tooth loss, can complicate the problems faced by diabetics and can cause other health problems. A good program of brushing, flossing and regular dentist visits can minimize your chances of developing periodontal disease. Have a talk about it with your dentist.

BOLINGBROOK – Sub-zero temperatures and dangerous wind chills hit the Woodridge area Sunday night into Tuesday, forcing local schools and government buildings to close. According to the National Weather Service, temperatures hit a low of minus 11 early Tuesday morning with wind chills as low as minus 30. Locally, Valley View School District was closed Monday and Tuesday. The cold also forced major delays along Metra lines. The cold snap wasn’t quite as frigid as the polar vortex that descended on the western suburbs Jan. 6 and 7. That freeze brought temperatures as low as

minus 15 and wind chills as low as minus 45.

Bad politics in Matune-Sandack race

To the Editor: This is in response to the Jan. 22 article “Political back-andforth begins in race for Republican nod in 81st District.” It is unfortunate that the residents of the 81st District have to be subjected to this sort of behavior. We deserve better than someone who says they oppose gay marriage early on in 2012 but flips on the subject and supports it in late 2013. Rep. Sandack can say what he wants about not being a “bought and sold item.” His actions speak otherwise. The fact that in March 2012 he accepted $540.55 from a pro family organization but then flipped his vote around the time a $10,750 donation came in from a LGBT organization slightly contradicts his statement. What I see is that the highest bid won in this instance, Rep. Sandack. I can appreciate your concern for Mr. Matune and your desire to be “neighborly” if those were your true intentions. However, I would have much more appreciated you calling a meeting with him to discuss the pressing issues facing the residents of the district. It is sad that the residents of the 81st District have to endure political bullying by you or any candidate. Personally, I don’t care about what may or may not have happened when someone was in college in another state. I would bet my

hat your college life was not lily white. From what I see, Keith Matune is making a difference in the lives of the future generation. He teaches, coaches and takes care of his family.

Cancel Party in the Park?

To the person who thinks canceling the Party in the Park is a good idea. Seriously? Ehlert Park is a very nice park, and people actually live around it – the same people who travel all the way up to Kiwanis Park. Your statement is arrogant and poorly thought out. How about you just stay home.

MARSHALL - DETRICK ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT

Agree about snow parking in Brookfield

Mr. and Dr. James Marshall of North Port, Florida, formerly of Lisle, Illinois, announce the engagement of their daughter, Sarah Emily Marshall, to Augustus Leo Detrick, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Detrick of West Chicago, Illinois. The future bride graduated from Naperville North High School in 2005 and Purdue University in 2009. She is employed as a medical case manager at EagleOne Case Management Solutions, Inc. and as a registered nurse at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

I totally agree with the person who commented on the snow-parking regulations in Brookfield. Monday-Wednesday-Friday and Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday regulations should remain in effect throughout the winter to avoid the confusion about snowfall amounts and days of the week. Many streets are narrow and those living on those streets take care to pull their mirrors in to avoid them being taken off by a passing car. We live on a wider street and two cars tried to pass and knocked the mirror off a visiting guest’s car. Do you think they stopped? People are very quick to judge the village for their poor job of cleaning the streets, but do they ever consider the residents who don’t move their cars properly?

The future groom attended Harper College and Illinois State University. He is employed in outside sales at Hisco, Inc. An August 2014 wedding is planned.

I was so disappointed to see My Favorite Toy Store close in Downers Grove at the end of last year. Its name truly described our family’s feeling about the store! Michael Geisen was a one-of-a-kind owner, personally talking with my daughters when they were young, showing them the latest toy or game and letting them try it out. Energetic employees shared the owner’s philosophy of encouraging kids to have fun in his store. After My Favorite Toy Store came to Downers [Grove], I never visited the big-box stores again for toys, games or crafts. They just didn’t have that personal touch. We have fond memories walking downtown on summer afternoons and “playing” at the family-friendly toy store, it will be greatly missed!

Attention: Fellow Dog Lover

Did You Book Your FREE New Year’s Grooming Yet? Happy New Year From Belle Aire Kennels & Grooming! It’s been a year now that I have been running our ad for a Free Grooming and we have had 100’s and 100’s of satisfied returning customers. Recently I was checking in with one of our new regulars, and she told me something that was really surprising. She told me she didn’t believe the Free Grooming was for real at first or there was some kind of catch somewhere. (Are you thinking that?) And luckily they finally gave us a call because a friend of theirs told them the free groom was for real. They had just tried us out months earlier and they were very happy with our service.

I get it…. in a world of bait and switch and under-delivering and over promising I can understand their caution and disbelief. Sometimes it takes a friend to give you the all clear it’s safe to give it a try. With that said we have put in place a couple of conditions…. We have found that people who live close to us come back to us (I know its rocket science). What I mean is if you’re looking for a free ride please go elsewhere…don’t call us from Joliet (we actually had someone from Florida request a free groom as well)…we want to become your trusted and regular groomer so you can have a great looking dog all the time. Also if your dog is really old and only gets groomed twice a year please use you regular groomer…. it is very stressful for an older dog to be groomed by a new person. We

recommend for your dog’s health and well-being keep using your regular groomer. SOOOO…If you have a dog that needs to be styled and groomed I invite you to give us a call to receive your free grooming. CALL 630-969-3145 we only have a few spots available a week. If you don’t have a dog you can tell a friend about this Free Groom too. I certainly would be very thankful if you passed on our name. Our number again is: 630-969-3145 I will let you go now…I wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year. Maybe I’ll see you some time. Cheers, John O’Driscoll Owner Belle Aire Kennels & Grooming

Ohyo, the maker of a popular, collapsible water bottle in England, is expanding into the U.S. market via Downers Grove.

Water bottle maker expands to Downers Grove By ED MCMENAMIN emcmenamin@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – Ohyo, the maker of a popular, collapsible water bottle in England, is expanding into the U.S. market via Downers Grove. Ohyo was created by environmental scientist Guy Jeremiah in Sheffield, England, after a 2008 trip to Fiji. Jeremiah had seen thousands of plastic bottles washed up on the shoreline and was inspired to develop a solution to this distressing issue – a collapsible bottle that people can always carry with them and refill when necessary to have a drink. The bottle, when extended, has an hourglass shape that collapses like an accordion into a slim disk. His company has sold more than 500,000 of the bottles overseas, according to Ohyo business consultant and sales representative Laura Edmonds, and began its expansion into the U.S. this fall. Downers Grove will serve as an efficient transportation hub for the product in the Chicago area, she said. The U.S. operations are being launched from Downers Grove because it is the location of William Beckett Plastics, the company that manufactures, warehouses and distributes the product. So far, Ohyo has space at William Beckett Plastics but does not have any dedicated U.S. employees, she said. As the stateside operation grows, that will likely change.

The water bottle is made of food-safe, toxin-free polyethylene that can be reused more than 10,000 times, according to Edmonds. Edmonds recalled a similar experience to Jeremiah’s, witnessing the ubiquitous water bottles disregarded in the Alps during a recent ski trip. Jeremiah and Edmonds hope that products like Ohyo can cut down on that waste. “Each person in the U.S. consumes about 20 gallons of bottled water a year,” she said. “And that’s a pretty staggering figure. And obviously it’s out of convenience. It makes sense, but I think that was really the impetus behind Ohyo.” The company got a recent boost in the U.K. when the pharmacy chain, Boots, expanded the number of its stores that offers the product. Ohyo is hoping to be in all 1,500 Boots stores in the near future, she said. The company is currently talking with major retailers in the U.S. Here, it is available for sale on Amazon, and through select independent retailers. The company also has a mobile phone app and website named findafountain.org. It allow users to mark water fountain locations on an online map for others to find. “It’s mostly populated with water fountains and drinking fountains in the U.K.,” she said. “But we’d like to slowly expand this in the U.S. as well.” Ohyo currently offers a 16-ounce bottle. A 32-ounce bottle is in development.

Commission recommends subdivision to the next phase By KRISTIN PEDICINI

kpedicini@shawmedia.com WOODRIDGE – Darien, Downers Grove and Wo odridge residents packed the Woodridge Village Hall on Monday for a public hearing on the proposed Timber’s Edge subdivision, proposed to be built just off 83rd Street on the Ide Christmas Tree Farm. During the Woodridge Plan

Commission public hearing, Pulte Homes Corporation sought to have the property re-zoned to an R-3 Residential District, as well as a variation to the building height ordinance and an amendment to the comprehensive plan. Commissioners eventually gave the project a positive recommendation via two separate votes, despite opposition from local residents, sending

the proposal on to the next phase at the village board level. The Timber’s Edge subdivision is proposed to bring 149 single-family homes to the property, home to Ide Christmas Tree Farm for the past 55 years. The owners of the farm have sold the property to Pulte Homes. Each lot would be an average of 2,779 square feet with

LIS/BBR

the average cost of homes projected at $449,990, according to Peter Tremulis, of Pulte Holmes. The subdivision would also include a legacy park dedicated to the Ide family, a bike trail, preserved sections of trees and three stormwater management basins, according to Kathleen West, the lawyer representing Pulte Homes Corporation. “It’s a well designed plan,” West said. “It’s compatible and consistent with the adjacent residential areas in terms of land use and site design.” Residents in the meeting opposed the subdivision for various reasons, including how the project could potentially endanger animals in the area. Pulte Homes Corporation was required to submit a survey regarding animals in the area, according to Village Planner Jason Zawila. Zawila said so far there has been no indication of endangered wildlife or habitats in the area. A second concern for the residents was presented by Robert Ytesch. He questioned the proposed project’s drainage and stormwater infrastructure. “My home’s [yard] slopes down and then it goes straight up to the tree farm,” Ytesch

said. “When it rains heavily, we have rain coming from the tree farm into our lot.” Chris Morgart, an engineer with Pulte Homes, said the company is in the preliminary planning phase and that stormwater options are still being considered. “That’s been one of the challenges with this site,” Morgart said. “I’m confident this will work out in the final plans. ... By law, we cannot worsen the conditions offsite.” Another Woodridge resident, Jim Hoffman, argued that the 30-plus acre tree farm should be preserved as open space. “We have the opportunity to keep open space for prosperity,” Hoffman said. “This is something the whole village should be able to enjoy.” Hoffman said while the Ide family has the right to sell the land, the commission has the ability to reject recommendations. “Propose it to the people of Woodridge and share with people of Darien ... to come up with money to buy this,” Hoffman said. “Let’s be creative folks.” The proposal is expected to return to the plan commission this spring, according to Village Planner Jason Zawila, before heading to the village board level.

Restaurant reviews

Bakersfield gives fresh spin to American fare WESTMONT – With its open floor plan and California-style setting, Bakersfield gives west suburban diners a fresh experience, and some good food, too. The restaurant pairs its modern, airy atmosphere with a made-from-scratch menu that’s mostly American with accents from a number of cuisines. Bakersfield touts its homemade fare featuring fresh ingredients picked from just across Ogden Avenue at its sister store Standard Market, an upscale grocery that chose Westmont for its first location in 2011. A companion and I visited Bakersfield on a recent weeknight, a chilly evening that made complimentary valet service quite beneficial. As we entered the restaurant, our eyes immediately went to the far side, where diners can see a half-dozen or so chefs busy preparing the night’s dishes. The lack of a wall gives a peek into the preparation involved, especially appealing to foodies. The open setting continues throughout the restaurant, with a three-sided bar on one end and an elevated seating area on the opposite, although diners get an intimate experience with raised booths that are just tall enough. For starters, my date and I kicked off our meal with the Housemade Guacamole, a generous portion with chips and a side of salsa. Our server even offered refills. The guacamole was creamy and fresh, and the salsa had a nice hint of chipotle. If you’re a fan of Mexican cuisine, definitely give it a try. Other appetizer selections at Bakersfield include Pot Roast Sliders, Crispy Thai Shrimp and Blue Crab Dip. For her main course, my date, at first indecisive, opted for the pan-roasted Chilean Sea Bass. She loved the dish, and said it was just the right amount. I was confident in my selection – the Knife & Fork Fried Chicken. The chicken was

Complimentary valet service is an added winter’s enticement at Bakersfield, a Westmont haven for foodies.

Catholic Schools Week National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2014 is January 26 to February 1. Schools typically observe National Catholic Schools Week with Masses, open house and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.

Common Core State Standards

you’ve got the life

Catholic schools have a long-standing commitment to academic excellence that is rooted in the faith- based mission of Catholic education. The Common Core State Standards in no way compromise the Catholic identity or educational program of a Catholic school. The Common Core State Standards initiative, begun in 2007, is a state-led, bipartisan effort that is not a requirement for participation in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) or any other federally- funded program, and there are no mandates for any Catholic school to follow any federal rules if they adopt the Common Core. Adoption of the Common Core is voluntary; individual states, Catholic dioceses and other private schools make their own decisions about whether to adopt the standards. The Common Core State Standards are a set of high-quality academic expectations that all students should master by the end of each grade level. The standards establish consistent learning goals for all students that focus on preparing them to succeed in college and careers in a globally competitive workplace. The standards define and clearly communicate grade-specific goals and inform parents about learning outcomes, making it easier for parents to collaborate with teachers in helping their children achieve success. The Common Core State Standards are not a curriculum. A curriculum includes what is taught, when it is taught, how it is taught and what materials to use. None of these items are included in the Common Core State Standards. For Catholic schools, all of these elements will continue to be determined by diocesan superintendents, principals and teachers working to meet the needs of their students. The Common Core represents a fundamental shift in the teaching and learning process. The Common Core establishes clear, measurable goals for students that assist teachers in making instructional decisions. The standards place emphasis on creativity, critical and analytical thinking and application to curriculum content. The Common Core is not a national curriculum. It guides the way that instruction takes place in each classroom, allowing the Catholic school to develop its own curriculum content. An excellent Catholic school provides a rigorous academic curriculum that integrates faith and knowledge. As trained professionals, Catholic school administrators and teachers continually seek the best instructional methods for educating students. In the past, dioceses and schools have developed their own standards or adapted state standards for use with their own curriculum. Some will continue to do this. To assist those incorporating the new standards, the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) and partners in Catholic education established the Common Core Catholic Identity Initiative (CCCII). CCCII provides resources to design and direct the implementation of Common Core within the culture and context of a Catholic school curriculum. Thus Catholic schools can infuse the standards with the faith, principles, values and social justice themes inherent in the mission of a Catholic school. NCEA, the largest private professional education organization in the world, provides leadership, direction and service to its members through a variety of professional development activities that support whatever teaching and learning activities the individual school chooses implement. NCEA Position Statement on the Common Core State Standards May 31, 2013


Did you know? The Catholic Church is sometimes referred to as the largest charitable group in the world. Although specific data confirming this status is difficult to come by, the Church certainly does its share of philanthropic work. Data from the Center for Applied Research as well as the National Catholic Educational Association indicates that the nonprofit healthcare system sponsored by the Catholic Church includes 637 hospitals. The Church also operates 122 home healthcare agencies and nearly 700 additional service providers, including assisted living, adult day care and senior housing facilities. Catholic Charities USA consists of 1,400 agencies that operate soup kitchens, temporary shelters, child care centers, and refugee resettlement facilities.

The new theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2014 is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” The theme encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education. First, schools are communities— small families in their own right, but also members of the larger community of home, church, city, and nation. Faith, knowledge, and service are three measures by which any Catholic school can and should be judged. The new logo features a swirl of colors interacting around a cross, which is at the center of all Catholic education. The vibrancy of the colors and the movement and shadows in the logo portray the inner-connectivity and community life that are present in our Catholic schools.

How to improve test-taking skills

S

tudents are periodically tested to gauge their progress on a variety of subjects. Although testing can be an effective way to determine a student’s understanding of a given subject, not every student performs well on tests. Test-taking comes easily for some but not so for others. Nerves or trouble concentrating can foil the best students. However, there are ways for students to improve their test-taking skills.

Tours are available for interested families. Call the office at 630/ 257-6488 ext. 21 ALL CLASSROOMS EQUIPPED WITH SMART BOARDS. OUR STUDENTS RECEIVE DAILY RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION ALONG WITH WEEKLY MASS AND SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES. OUR SCHOOL HAS STATE OF THE ART COMPUTERS, SPANISH, MUSIC, ART, BAND, CHESS CLUB, LEGO LEAGUE, CHOIR, DRAMA CLUB, TUTOR BUDDIES AND ATHLETICS. BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE ARE AVAILABLE!

Preparation Most tests are given with prior notice, enabling students to prepare for them well in advance. Sometimes teachers and professors will surprise students with a quiz. These pop quizzes are used to judge how well students are absorbing the information and if they have been paying attention. When in class, continually jot down notes and create an outline of important information. The teacher may provide hints about the upcoming test, including emphasizing specific areas of focus or even revealing the format of the test. Contrary to what some students believe, teachers want their students to succeed. Therefore, your teacher may offer a review session the day before or be open for questions prior to the test if further clarification is needed. Studying with others can shed new light on a subject. Studying difficult subject matter with peers may help students grasp the materials better than they did in class. Classmates may have some tricks they’ve developed, including pneumonic devices for putting facts together. The day before and the day of the test Prior to a test, make sure you eat and get enough rest. While it may be tempting to pull an “all-nighter,” you will not perform well on the test if you are tired from having studied all night. Review the material and put the main ideas or

formulas onto a sheet that can be quickly reviewed. Review it many times and then put it away. Have a good meal, relax and try to get at least eight hours of sleep. On the day of the test, wake up and arrive on time or even a few minutes early for your class. This can help to calm your nerves and enable you to squeeze in some last-second studying.

The test itself Make sure you have the supplies needed for the test. This may include pens or pencils, a calculator, a textbook if you are allowed to reference, or any other supplies the teacher allows. Have a watch available so that you can pace yourself during the test. Avoid using a mobile phone during the test, as the teacher may misinterpret that as cheating. Try to remain positive through the test. If you feel yourself getting nervous, take a few deep breaths and regroup. In addition to these tips, there are other ways to approach the test. * Do the easiest problems first. If you do not know a question, skip it and move on. There may be clues later on in the test that help you go back and answer skipped questions. * Always read the entire question. Skimming could find you missing important instructions. * Look for words that may help you determine the answer, such as “all,” “never” or “none”. They may present clues to the answer. * Pay attention to your work and only your work. Do not be distracted if others finish before you. * If there is time, go back and look over the test. Make sure that all the questions have been answered and check for any careless mistakes. Proofread any essays and short answer questions. Preparing well for a test, remaining calm and checking over your work can help students who struggle with test-taking do their best.

BOLINGBROOK LEADERS • Prentiss Nixon: 16 points, six rebounds • Gage Davis: 10 points, six rebounds • Josh Dillingham: Eight points, 12 rebounds

“Anytime you can put some breathing room in between you and the rest of the conference, that’s big. We are currently undefeated in conference play, and we would like to continue that trend.” Rob Brost

Bolingbrook head coach

while Devon Sams and Broderic Thomas contributed seven points apiece. Senior forward Josh Dillingham was two points shy of a double-double, notching eight points and 12 rebounds. Brost noted that while Dillingham never lights up the stat sheet, last year’s sixth man has matured into a driving force in the Raiders’ starting lineup. “He is a catalyst on defense and does all the things that a coach loves to see,” Brost said. “He communicates well, rebounds with tenacity and really gets after it on both sides of the court.” After a week-long layoff, Bolingbrook will try to maintain its perfect SWSB record when the team faces conference foe Sanburg for a road game at 6:30 p.m. Friday. It is Lathan Goumas – lathangoumas@shawmedia.com the third of five consecutive conference road games for the Bolingbrook’s Prentiss Nixon goes up for a layup Friday at Lockport. The Raiders notched a lopsided 61-35 Raiders. win to remain unbeaten in conference play.

BBR

LOCKPORT – Bolingbrook’s boys basketball prevailed Friday in a battle of the top two teams in the Southwest Suburban Blue conference. A stifling defense and an exacting offensive scheme helped the Raiders pick apart Lockport en route to a 61-35 victory. Bolingbrook now stands a perfect 6-0 in conference play, two games better than second-place Lockport and Homewood-Flossmoor. “Anytime you can put some breathing room in between you and the rest of the conference, that’s big,” Bolingbrook head coach Rob Brost said. “We are currently undefeated in conference play, and we would like to continue that trend.” More performances like Friday’s game against Lockport will go a long way toward helping the Raiders secure a conference crown. Bolingbrook jumped out to an early 10-2 lead in the first quarter, forcing Lockport to abandon its 1-3-1 zone defense and apply man-to-man pressure. The Porters stormed back, cutting the deficit to two points before the Raiders countered with a 13-0 run to end the half. Brost attested that the team executed the game plan to perfection in the first half. “I think we executed our game plan almost exactly how I thought we would,” Brost said. “The coaching staff gave the boys a recipe for a win, and they followed and executed almost flawlessly.” With a 25-10 lead to start the third quarter, the Raiders never allowed Lockport to cut their advantage to single digits. Junior guard Prentiss Nixon scored a team-high 16 points and also grabbed six rebounds for the Raiders. Fellow guard Gage Davis chipped in 10 points and six rebounds

With the Denver Broncos and quarterback Peyton Manning set to play in the Super Bowl on Sunday, few people can offer the perspective of Ryan Diem. A former teammate of Manning, the Glenbard North graduate played 11 seasons in the NFL as a member of the Indianapolis Colts before retiring in 2011. Still living in Indianapolis with his family, the former offensive lineman is now involved with a couple of different businesses, primarily a software company called CloudOne. Diem and his family return to the Chicago area every year for the Ryan Diem’s Allie & Friends Golf Classic. In nine years, the event has raised more than $1 million for neuroblastoma cancer research. Diem talked with Suburban Life sports reporter Scott Schmid about Manning and his own career.

Diem: When you are playing in the top conference in the state, facing the best competition can only prepare you for the next level. Look at this past season with Justin Jackson, facing that kind of competition week in and week out can only make him better next year at Northwestern.

Immovable object vs. irresistible force at Super Bowl XLIII NEW YORK – As Super Bowl matchups go it doesn’t get much better than Super Bowl XLIII between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos. For starters, you’ve got the two best teams in the NFL without question as this is just the second time in the past 20 seasons that both the NFC’s and AFC’s top seeds have advanced to the playoffs. Perhaps more impressive, this is just the fifth Super Bowl in history and the first since the New York Giants played the Buffalo Bills following the 1990 season that the NFL’s top scoring team, Denver with 606 points has faced the leagues number one scoring defense, Seattle with 231 points allowed. It gets better. This is just the second time in Super Bowl history the league’s top team in total offense, Denver – 7,317 total yards, 457.3/game has faced the top defense, Seattle allowing just 4,378 total yards, 273.6/game. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said, “It’s historically as hard as it gets. It can’t get any tougher. They’ve done everything – broken every major

record in the throwing game, points and everything. Peyton’s (Manning) been extraordinary. He’s had the year that everyone would dream to have. We’re up against it.” Broncos head coach John Fox knows he’s got his hands full as well. “I think for the fans it’s an incredible matchup,” Fox said. “Watching them (Seattle) and knowing Pete Carroll for many years, I’ve got the utmost respect. They’ve done a lot in a short period of time. I think it’s a tribute to their personnel people. Their whole team has done a heck of a job.” Those Seahawk personnel folks Fox complimented found six Pro Bowlers including three of the four starting defensive backs in Seattle’s “Legion of Boom” secondary, Richard Sherman,

Masterbrand Cabinetry

Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. They will anchor the key matchup in the game versus Denver Pro Bowlers Manning, guard Louis Vasquez, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, tight end Julius Thomas, former Pro Bowl wideout Wes Welker, Eric Decker and running back Knowshon Moreno. It’s almost impossible to remember a team with more weapons on offense than the record-setting Broncos. But don’t discount Seattle’s offense lead by a few Pro Bowlers of its own – center Max Unger, running back Marshawn Lynch and quarterback Russell Wilson. Lynch is the only player in the NFL to rush for more than 1,000 yards and score at least 10 touchdowns in each of the past three seasons. Wilson has won 27 games as a starting quarterback in the NFL, including three playoff games and is trying to join Kurt Warner and Ben Roethlisberger as the only quarterbacks in history to win a Super Bowl in his first or second season.

Upon arriving in New Jersey Manning said of Wilson, “I met Russell Wilson, believe it or not, when I was visiting the Broncos. I believe it was after I signed with the Broncos. They were having players come in for visits before the draft. I was actually in the film room watching some tape, and someone brought Russell in. I had a chance to shake his hand. I wished him luck and told him I enjoyed watching his college career.” Wilson knows he had a brush with greatness and seems to understand his place in the QB matchup. “They have an unbelievable quarterback in Peyton Manning. I have so much respect for him and what he’s done over his entire career. He deserves all of the credit. He’s an unbelievable quarterback and human being. “Just the energy in this area right now, in New Jersey. All of you guys (media) here in the New York area, it’s going to be a great scene. It’s going to be a great game. It’s going to be a battle to the end and I’m really looking forward to that game!”

release, something he honed with quarterbacks coach Jeff Christensen of Throw it Deep. Garoppolo said after the first practice that in terms of areas of improvement, coaches wanted him to work on his footwork, since he was “fairly new” to the 3-, 5- and 7-step drops. “It’s a repetition thing,” he said. “Once you start doing it so much, you get used to it.” Fisch acknowledged that it’s tough to work on a technique in only one week, but he seemed impressed with Garoppolo’s footwork. “I think his footwork’s been pretty good,” he said. “I think he’s done a nice job, throws with a nice face with good feet so it’s pretty neat to see.” Garoppolo knows that while he may have the moxie that coaches want in a quarterback, he needs to show he has the physical tools as well. “If you’re a leader, they’ll know you’re a leader by how you act on the field,” he said about the balancing act.

“If you can throw the ball, they’ll know that by the end of the day. You’ve just got to come out here, be yourself and compete.” A Bears fan, Garoppolo said Jay Cutler is his favorite Chicago quarterback. The two might differ in personality, but Cutler has plenty of confidence, something Garoppolo said he knows he needs to show during the draft process, and he can gain that more with his arm than his words. “If you belong, you belong. If you don’t, you’re going to stick out and people are going to know that you don’t belong,” he said. As the days went by in Mobile, Fisch saw a trend. Maybe Garoppolo read the articles about his rising draft stock, but more likely, he saw what he was capable of against top competition. “Each day, I have noticed a trend in a way, that his confidence has continued to improve and therefore his charisma has showed up,” Fisch said. “He has a nice presence about himself.”

MOBILE, Ala. – Regardless of what the unknown team sought when asking Jimmy Garoppolo, “Name as many things as you can do with a brick in a minute,” the personnel folks probably were impressed with how the Eastern Illinois quarterback handled his interview. “All the questions have a purpose behind them,” Garoppolo said at the Senior Bowl, laughing about the odd question he received. “Sometimes you don’t know what they are; you’ve just got to answer truthfully, really.” A linebacker until his junior year at Rolling Meadows High School, Garoppolo didn’t receive a single Division I offer. Four years later, his performance at the East-West Shrine game last week earned him a last-minute invitation to the Senior Bowl – a long journey that continues to be positive for Garoppolo. “Last week helped me out,” he said

when asked about dealing with the stigma of being an Football Championship Subdivision quarterback playing with the big boys. “You guys talk about it, scouts Jimmy talk about it, but I’m done with that. … We’re Garoppolo all on the same playing field, same playing level.” “I think it’s a pretty neat deal,” said Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, who worked extensively with the quarterbacks on the South team. “The opportunity to have an Auburn pass rusher lined up and a Florida state pass rasher, a Georgia corner, now all of a sudden he’s playing with a different group two weeks in a row and two different offenses in a row. I think it’s pretty cool to watch his development.” Many considered Garoppolo the second-best quarterback in Mobile during the week, just behind Fresno State’s Derek Carr. He has an incredibly quick

Now is the ideal time to create an impressive entertaining space in your home — one that you will be proud to share and truly enjoy throughout the year, whatever the occasion. Just imagine the memories your family will make snuggled on a plush new couch reading stories, or cheering their favorite soccer or football team to victory while watching a new flatscreen TV. Here are easy ways to upgrade your space, and your electronics, without busting your budget. Freshen furniture: If your current couch and recliners are more shabby than chic, it’s time to upgrade. New, plush furniture can be within your budget with lease-to-own alternatives. Accessorize: Whether you just got a new couch or want to update your current furniture, new pillows, throws and blankets are perfect for keeping guests toasty warm no matter how low the temperatures drop. Pillows are great for lounging and, when you’re hosting a large group, can be used on the floor to keep everyone comfy. Electronic entertainment: Setting the scene for the perfect party is easy when you have the right entertainment prepped beforehand. Start by having some music ready to get everyone in a festive mood from the moment they arrive. Rethink the arrangement: Cluster seating together to encourage conversation, and face the main pieces of furniture toward a focal point, like the TV. By keeping flow and function in mind as your arrange the area, you’ll better define the space and maximize its potential use.

New gardeners should discover ‘The Old Farmer’s Almanac’ By Maureen Gilmer McClatchy-Tribune Information Services

There’s a hole punched in the corner of “The Old Farmer’s Almanac for 2014.” It’s a nostalgic remnant of the homestead where it hung on the outhouse wall for reading material and toilet paper. This is the very same annual that guided early American farmers, and it’s still just as important today, but for a whole new audience. Now backyard food growers can learn how to link sun, moon and stars, seasons and cycles and folklore into tending the sustainable home garden. “The Old Farmer’s Almanac” is useful because it reminds you of planting dates and other important times in the agricultural year. It’s is a primer for new gardeners to discover the older, less expensive ways to get things done. Moreover, this annual details how astronomical happenings, such as moon phases, governed the tasks of the gardener-farmer’s world. Why, you ask, is this important? That farmer used the old time methods of using phases of the moon to govern his work, and that helps gardeners, too. It dictates the kind of tasks he performs in the waxing moon or a waning one, when the moon is full or there is no moon at all. The Almanac utilizes very old symbols for celestial goings on from day length to the sun’s position with signs of the Zodiac and many things other similar publications lack. The symbols were essential for illiterate farmers who could not read text but recognized the signs and knew what they mean. The farmer’s monthly cycle is broken into four moon phases. The new moon is called “the dark of the moon.” Soon after, the first sliver of moon appears, called the “fingernail” moon growing nightly until the first quarter is complete. This signals it is on the increase or “waxing” incrementally larger each night. This continues through the end of the first quarter into the second, which ends in the full moon. Then the moon “wanes” or grows smaller each night until the third quarter is completed. In the fourth, you come around to the new moon again. An old farmer’s rule is to plant crops that fruit above the ground while the moon is waxing. Then under a full moon all crops are planted. It was believed that the strength of the moon is greatest when full and would therefore bring more growth energy to seed germination. As the moon begins to wane planting continues through the third quarter, but only those plants which produce below ground such as turnip or potato. The fourth quarter of the moon is a time of destruction and planting is forbidden. This

is when the farmer cuts his fence posts and firewood. He ploughed the fields and pulled weeds. Harvest also occurred in the dark of the moon. Among other important information is sunrise, sunset and tides for every day of the year. Woven into these factoids are useful tips, handy examples and folklore from early farming practices that still ring true today. This year’s feature stories include an excellent primer on crop rotation in the home garden. While buying my new issue,

I noticed other publishers are getting on board with similar versions of the Almanac that lack the age old wisdom and 21st century data. Look for its iconic yellow cover, and note the various geographic editions. Mine is the Western Edition where the info is skewed to local astronomical happenings and regional gardening needs of the west coast. Other editions are for a national audience and one for Canadians. You’ll find the almanac and a useful wall calendar version at www.almanac.com. “The Old Farmer’s Almanac”

is one of the best books for new backyard food gardeners. Learn planting dates, get on the fast track to the age-old forecast of seasons, planetary positions, moon phase and weather forecasts that are just as useful today as they were centuries ago.
