Former Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers wide receiver Anthony Morgan paid a visit to Morton High School on Dec. 12 to award a $2,500 cash donation as a result of video submissions to the Hero’s Cheesy Challenge contest. Morton High School was awarded the contest’s grand prize, including a visit from Morgan, a $2,500 cash donation from the GENYOUth Foundation and pro football player-signed merchandise for their school and chosen hero. The prize was awarded for their video creation about a cheesy meal or snack that celebrates a local hero. Matheny-Withrow Elementary School in Springfield took second place, while Herrin High of Herron took third. Each received a supply of reduced-fat cheese and Fuel Up to Play 60 merchandise. The contest was created through a partnership between the Midwest Dairy Council and Land O’ Lakes to reward Fuel Up to Play 60-enrolled Illinois schools for engaging in healthy eating and physical activity behaviors.

School closes to avoid future complications By JOE SINOPOLI jsinopoli@shawmedia.com CICERO – Students at the Morton High School Freshman Center were released from classes and sent home at 11:30 a.m. Dec. 11, but it wasn’t a total surprise or the result of an emergency. According to school officials, it was part of a greater plan to avoid one. Morton School District Superintendent Michael Kuzniewski said he received a telephone call the evening before from Water Department Director Lido Manetti who reported a water main break on a private lot where construction was underway. Manetti informed the superintendent that the town of Cicero needed to cut water service to initiate repairs. Cutting service to the

leak also meant cutting service to the Freshman Center. If service was cut before the morning classes started, it also meant many students who participated in the school’s breakfast program couldn’t be served. Kuzniewski said the heads up gave him time to develop a plan to abbreviate the class schedule and hold classes before the water was shut off at 11:30 a.m. Dec. 11. “I have great people here and it was really helpful that the town waited,” he said. “We knew this was going to happen, so a global connect went out to all parents after the kids were in school.” The reason the call went out after school started, Kuzniewski said, was he wanted to avoid any temptation for

students to decide they would blow off a half-day of school. Manetti said although the actual leak was on private factory property, it required cutting off the main water service so private contractors could go in and repair the leak. Because the service was already temporarily cut, it seemed a perfect time for Water Department crews to install a valve that could be used to shut off service to the factory in the event any other problems might occur, but at the same time allowing the water to continue to service the surrounding area, including the Morton Freshman Center, Morton Alternative School and Unity Middle School. “Now we won’t ever have to affect the other schools,” Manetti said.

Youth Crossroads gets education grant By JOE SINOPOLI jsinopoli@shawmedia.com BERWYN – The South Berwyn Education Foundation gave its first grant to a Berwyn-based nonprofit, instead of for a direct school district request for funds, the foundation announced recently. The foundation presented a $10,000 grant to Youth Crossroads in November to enhance YC student support services for children attending South Berwyn School District 100 schools. The grant will support after-school academic enrichment programs provided by YC at Freedom Middle School and a bullying prevention program for fourth- and fifth-graders at Komensky School. More than 300 District 100 students will benefit from the services, which are intended to improve student school attendance, academic performance, social and emotional wellbeing, and students’ ability to achieve success at school and home. YC Executive Director David Terrazino said he attended an SBEF meeting and pitched the idea of YC being considered for a grant. “They relatively quickly decided it was worthy of their

support,” Terrazino said. “Because of our long history of working with the district and our current level and variety of programs for the kids, they felt it was worthy of supporting.” SBEF has provided more than $1 million in support to South Berwyn schools, teachers and student enrichment projects since SBEF was founded in 1992. YC is a licensed child welfare agency since 1974. Services include mental health counseling, crisis intervention, services for runaway and locked out youth, schoolbased counseling for children who have experience trauma and anger management issues, after-school enrichment programs and a youth leadership development services. In 2014, it will celebrate 40 years of service to the communities of Berwyn, Cicero, Stickney Forest View and Lyons. SBEF president Dan Lane said in a news release the foundation was proud to help and support the Youth Crossroads after-school programs in the district’s two middle schools. “This is a much needed program for many families in our district this time of year,” Lane stated.

Fight Cancer Naturally!

Troop adds 3 more Eagles to its rolls SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA BERWYN – The names of three young men have been added to the Eagle Scout rolls following a Court of Honor ceremony at St. Leonard Church in Berwyn for Boy Scout Troop 32. On Nov. 30, Sean Kampe, Nathan Nelson and Ralph Ruiz earned the highest rank a Boy Scout can achieve. All three intend to stay involved with the troop in order to mentor younger scouts just starting out. Kampe, 18, has been a scout at St. Leonard since first grade. He graduated from St. Ignatius College Prep in Chicago and attends University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne, Ind., where

he studies pre-veterinary medicine. For his service project, he organized 17 volunteers to rehabilitate a 1000-square-foot wall that protects the swimming pool at the Pavek Recreational Center. Nelson, also 18, has been a Scout at St. Leonard since fifth grade. He graduated from Nazareth Academy and attends Benedictine University. For his Eagle service project he organized a crew that cleared a vacant lot on Chicago’s south side that had been used by local gangs to harbor weapons and drugs. Ruiz has been a Scout at St. Leonard since fifth grade, too. The 18-year-old graduated from Riverside-Brook-

field High School and attends Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. For his Eagle Scout service project, he organized a group that cleared and reclaimed the land on the eastern portion of the Berwyn Recreation Center. To gain the rank of Eagle a Scout must earn at least 21 merit badges in areas such as leadership, athletics and outdoor skills. Eagle candidates also must complete a comprehensive public service project. Only about 5 percent of Scouts attain the rank. Troop 32, one of the oldest troops in the state, is based at St. Leonard Church in Berwyn and is sponsored by the St. Leonard Holy Name Society.

I’m sick and tired of the school system raising our taxes. Older people on a budget should be left alone. Enough is enough.

Theft from teachers Suburban Life Media thinks the pension reform legislation that ripped off teachers of their retirements didn’t go far enough. Well, just like your brother stealing your money from your piggy bank for years and then just saying, “Oh sorry, I don’t have the money anymore. Too bad, you come up with it.” Come on. This was actual theft. We teachers who are retired and other public employees know that this is just the first step toward their shirking of their responsibility, that being the state of Illinois.

B. Achievements

This is in response to “Rake your leaves.” Everyone sees the negligent homeowner who doesn’t collect leaves. They’re also the same ones who don’t mow their lawn regularly, have weeds and dandelions, never shovel the sidewalk and driveway all winter, their cars are in the streets, preventing the snowplow from clearing the street properly. These are homeowner duties. If they don’t like to do them, move to an apartment. I would like to see a village code against negligent properties.

McCOOK – Northwestern University scientists have installed a device at McCook’s Federal Quarry that will record seismic activity 24/7 and possibly lead to an explanation for the 3.2 magnitude earthquake triggered near the quarry Nov. 4. The seismograph will constantly upload data to the U.S. Geological Survey and provide the first comprehensive analysis of seismic activity in the area, the office of U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski said in a news release. Lipinski met Dec. 10 with officials from local municipalities and McCook quarry operators as part of a scheduled meeting of the Lyons Town-

ship Quarry Advisory Council. “This seismograph is one piece to help us solve the puzzle as to why these events have occurred and, most important, what can be done to prevent them from happening again,” Lipinski said in the release. During the Nov. 4 earthquake, the only recordings at the quarry were taken by a seismograph from Hanson Materials, which conducted a scheduled blast seven seconds before the earthquake. Hanson’s device only records seismic activity immediately before, during and after blasts. Hanson has not performed blasting since the incident and does not plan to resume blasting until spring, Lipinski’s release said.

To the editor: We are very disturbed and concerned over the apparent lack of consistent adherence to the proper display of the American flag – especially with regard to honoring fallen heroes and dignitaries. As veterans, we organized a program in our community in an effort to provide American flags for prominent display in public places. However, especially on days of public mourning, such as the recent anniversary of the death of President John F. Kennedy, we noticed with great despair that in our community while the post office and City Hall had the flag appropriately at half-mast,

many other flags had not been lowered – such as in front of banks and public schools. The lack of following protocol regarding the display of the American flag by public institutions in general is ongoing and a source of personal disappointment to us especially when fallen heroes or dignitaries who have served their community should be honored by display of the flag at half-mast. Our concern extends to those whose job it is to lower or raise the flag appropriately – in our community as well as in general. There does not seem to be consistent adherence to the National guidelines set for display of the American flag, and we find this inexcusable and very disrespectful.

After my husband’s stroke in July, we have been amazed by the help we’ve received getting groceries, bringing over food,

taking out the garbage, putting the newspaper by the door and phone calls to make sure we’re okay. A perfect example was after our snow fall Sunday. We had three different people clearing our driveway. It reminds us that despite the weather, Obamacare and all the troubles we all face, there is so much to be grateful for – and we are.

Restaurant reviews

The Chew Chew tracks all the right notes RIVERSIDE – There are restaurants and then there are neighborhood institutions. The Chew Chew in Riverside is the latter. On a recent night, The Chew Chew was full of locals: a gathering of schoolteachers, buddies grabbing a burger and catching a Bulls game, and even a village official out for a quiet dinner with his wife. The presence of locals at The Chew Chew is unsurprising, because if you ask anyone in Riverside where to head for dinner, this place makes the list. The Chew Chew serves the community in multiple contexts. The menu references awards for best neighborhood joint; food-focused social media websites rate it highly as a spot for locals and visitors alike; and the restaurant regularly gives generously to local causes and nonprofits. Just like Riverside itself, The Chew Chew is full of history and local mythology, and is, in a word: classic. That’s not bad for a place founded in 1996. But enough about all that; let’s talk food. The Chew Chew’s menu strikes a nice balance between bar food and a higher end steakhouse. An $11 burger sits comfortably on the menu next to mid-priced pasta dishes, $30 steaks and rotating market fish. But with a twist, the menu also offers items not regularly seen on suburban menus, such as escargot, pate and zucchini pickles. To get started, I ordered baked onion soup and one of the night’s specials: duck pate on crostini (toast) with pickled onion and crumbled, hard-boiled egg. The soup arrived first – hot, but not boiling – with a crispy layer of Swiss cheese sitting atop croutons floating on pure onion goodness. On a frigid night, it was the perfect first course to beat the chill; a good balance of broth and onion – hearty without being heavy. About the time I was fin-

Give the power to change the world (BPT) - Every year, office or classroom gift exchanges, thank you tokens for service providers, and last-minute items for acquaintances that drop in unannounced leave many Americans wrestling with a burning question: What can you give for $25 (the ubiquitous price point for this type of gifting)?

How it works By going to www.kiva.org/gifts, you can choose an amount, purchase a Kiva Card and select the delivery option that works best for you. Print it yourself and keep some cards on hand for drop-in guests. Or, send it via Facebook, email or U.S post to recipients anywhere in the world. Recipients redeem the Kiva Card at Kiva.org by selecting the specific borrower who will receive the loan. The website provides detailed information about each borrower and how he or she will use the loan to build their business and create opportunity for their families and communities. It’s possible to find borrowers who appeal to the passions of virtually every gift recipient. If your giftee is a foodie, perhaps she’ll choose to give her loan to a beekeeper in Kenya or organic coffee farmer in Mexico. If the card recipient believes in promoting green energy, he may choose as his

beneficiary an entrepreneur who brings solar power to a region of Tanzania where there is no electricity. Have an art or craft fan on your gift list? He or she may choose to lend to a weaver who supports his family and preserves an ancient art form through the products he weaves and sells. The gift that can truly keep on giving The benefit of a Kiva Card doesn’t end with the satisfaction of having helped others. Kiva borrowers have an impressive repayment rate of nearly 99 percent. Neither the lender nor Kiva makes any money

from the loan. Once the borrower repays the $25 loan , your gift recipients can either reclaim the cash value of the card to spend on a gift for themselves, or they can opt to reinvest the money and make a new loan through Kiva. As they relend their money to another borrower on Kiva, your initial gift of $25 has the potential impact of hundreds of dollars. The recipient could continue to reap the spiritual rewards of giving for years after receiving your initial gift. To learn more, or to start giving Kiva Cards, visit www.kiva.org/gifts.

(BPT) - The holiday season is a time when people are looking to give back. Sometimes this giving back encompasses spending time with others in the community, and other times it is showing support for programs that give back across the world. Families can get involved in giving back this holiday season in many ways, involving all members - from your newborn to great grandma. Here’s how: * Support companies that give back. Families with infants and toddlers may not realize that the Bumbo products they purchase not only solve every day parenting challenges, but they also give back to children in need. In fact, a portion of proceeds from every Bumbo product purchased worldwide supports the underprivileged and special needs children in the company’s hometown of Pretoria, South Africa. Since

2005, the company has donated more than $10 million back to the local community through the Bumbo Cares non-profit program, providing food, shelter and education for more than 1,200 South African children. Products that give back include the Bumbo Floor Seat and accessories - the perfect first seat for babies; the Booster Seat, Step Stool and Toilet Trainer. You can learn more about how Bumbo helps the children of Pretoria at www.BumboUSA.com/BumboCares. * Organize a collection drive. Children love to help other children, and they can do that by participating in a drive. If there isn’t a clothing or food drive already happening in your neighborhood, consider organizing one yourself. Find an organization in your community that helps children and ask what donations are needed. Advertise when you’ll be holding the drive with letters

or postcards to neighbors. On the day of the drive, help your children and their friends collect the donations, and then take everyone with you to deliver the donations to the organization. Take a photo of the drop off and submit it to the community paper to commemorate the work the youths put into the effort. * Participate in a community kitchen, clean-up or build. These are activities everyone in the family can participate in. Contact your local government office to find out when the next community clean-up day is scheduled. If you have younger children, ask to be assigned to a park or quiet road. And if you have older children who are able to participate in a community kitchen or build project, consider donating your time there. It will be a project they can reflect upon years

later - reminding them how they cared and contributed back this holiday season. * Visit those who are homebound during the holidays. Sometimes the best way a family can give back is by visiting those who aren’t able to get out of the home very easily. Contact a local nursing home or your religious center to ask if your family can sing holiday carols, bring treats or just come over for a talk. All it takes is a bit of time, which often is a great way to give back. As your family gets ready to celebrate the holidays this year, remember these tips of lending a hand, organizing a drive or supporting companies, like Bumbo, that give back. There are always opportunities where your entire family can pitch in to help the neighborhood, community, country and world.

(BPT) - Between the growing trends of boutique restaurants, creative home cooking and entire television networks dedicated to food, you probably know a few people who consider themselves “foodies.” Whether they love craft beer, decadent chocolate treats or gourmet cheeses, you can find many great gift ideas for people passionate about food and drink. Make their holiday extra bright by indulging their interests and exploring some of these top trends in food-related gifts. Himalayan salt is a trendy and truly unique gift for salt lovers and gourmets. The hard mineral composition means this particular type of salt can be carved into a variety of useful items, such as a Himalayan salt block ideal for serving warm grilled meats or chilled for serving sushi. Gourmet chefs at home can infuse food and drink with a subtle hint of mineral-rich salt, adding a unique layer of flavor. Himalayan salt is also touted as a healthy, natural source of sodium by many health experts.

Personalized stoneware

Unique gourmet treats are sure to impress even the most refined palate. From handdipped Champagne strawberries from Shari’s Berries, to gourmet caramel apples and cake pops, tantalizing temptations appeal to anyone with a sweet tooth. Gourmet popcorn and fruit baskets make great gifts for food lovers too, and combining a few fe special treats eats in a gift basket is a fun way to present their favorites.

Made in the USA

Things made in the USA embrace the idea of “home is where the heart is,” while providing quality goods that last the test of time. Patronize boutiques that feature local artisans, or when shopping online, look for the location where the item was created. For example, RedEnvelope’s animal wood cutting board comes in pig, cow, rooster and chicken designs - ideal for any chef all made in the USA.

Grill mania

Sweet and salty treats

Flavor fusion is featured in some of the nation’s most popular restaurants, but home chefs are enjoying these taste mash-ups, too. One classic blend that has been gaining popularity is salty and sweet combos. Gift ideas that feature this ultimate mix include gourmet dipped pretzel rods in various types of chocolate. Sea-salt adorned confections are another popular option - look for caramels and truffles sprinkled with sparkling sea salt for the perfect salty and sweet pairing.

Glass sets for beer aficionados

It’s official - the craft beer movement is

Both men and women are refining their grilling skills by cooking dishes in their favorite barbecue style - and winter isn’t stopping them. Indulge their passion with a grilling gift that features some of today’s top spices and sauces. Trending spices of the year include turmeric, juniper, smoked paprika and galangal, a Thai ginger. Does your favorite griller like some heat? Add in some Sriracha or Korean chili paste for that spicy kick foodies are looking for. Cheer your favorite foodie with a gift that’s sure to please. These top trends in food- and drink-related gifts will stand out from the others under the tree.

(BPT) - Don’t worry, Mom. In this case, it’s OK to play with your food. The latest online social media craze features awe-inspiring galleries of edible art, showcasing everyday ingredients transformed into munchable holiday masterpieces. This season, whether you’re looking to revamp the relish tray or simply keep the kids occupied with a fun project, a few holiday-friendly staples are all you need to let your creativity take flight. Take, for instance, California black ripe olives. Known for their versatility and mild flavor, black olives are a party favorite for a reason. And with 95 percent of the nation’s ripe olives grown on family farms in California, they’re a truly all-American ingredient, too. They’re also the perfect building block for edible holiday treats. Get in on the fun with an easy and adorable-to-look-at recipe that uses black olives, cream cheese, pretzels and a few other common ingredients to create an unforgettable herd of holiday cheer. In fact, this is one reindeer game anyone can play. For more holiday recipe ideas featuring California ripe olives, visit www.calolive.org. California Olive Reindeer Makes 8 reindeer Supplies: 2- 4 Won ton wrappers Cooking spray 2 Sandwich-sized reclosable plastic bags 4 ounces cream cheese Scissors 8 colossal California Black Ripe Olives 8 large California Black Ripe Olives 1 bamboo skewer 16 pretzel sticks Paring knife Tiny pieces of carrot and raisins Powdered sugar (optional) Kale (optional) Mushrooms (optional) Directions: With a small, sharp knife, cut wonton wrappers into “antlers.” Place on a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes at 350 F, or until lightly browned. Place cream cheese into two sandwich-sized reclosable bags. Snip 1/8-inch off the corner of one and 1/16-inch off the second. With the bag and the 1/8-inch hole, squeeze cream cheese into colossal olives. Using a bamboo skewer, make a hole in the large olives. Break a pretzel stick in half and press into hole and into colossal olive. Press together to form the head. Make four holes in the colossal olive with a bamboo skewer and push four broken pretzel sticks in to form legs. Squeeze cream cheese with the small-hole to form eyes. Make tiny slits with a paring knife in the top of the head and insert wonton antlers. Make a hole in the large olive (head) and insert a small sliver of carrot for the nose. Use a small piece of raisin to create pupils. To create a winter setting, dust kale leaves with powdered sugar and snip the tops off mushrooms to simulate large boulders.

Winter days call for warm baked goods, whether it’s a classic casserole or rich homemade pie. Cooks and bakers love to personalize dishes with updated versions of classic recipes, adding herbs and spices for extra flare. And when that dish is cooked in customized stoneware, there’s no mistaking who created the culinary masterpiece. Personalized stoneware is gaining popularity; by adding a name or special message, you’re giving a gift that’s truly one of a kind.

Craft beer enthusiasts know that one of the best ways to enhance your drink is to use the correct glass.

Moms champion traditional toys even in a digital age can’t wrap an app.” However, as experts and media debate whether digital devices will one day replace dolls, cars, trains and action figures, most moms do not think smart digital devices and traditional toys directly compete with one another as a source of kids’ entertainment. Rather, each category remains fundamentally different. While 75 percent of kids today play with devices like smartphones and tablets, Mattel’s research found the time they spend with these devices actually competes with the time they spend with other screens, such as televisions and computers. In fact, 59 percent of moms felt that smart portable devices will one day replace other electronic devices, not traditional toys. According to Mattel’s findings, moms frequently associate toys with social activities since toys are often used to play with others, whereas digital devices are generally associated with solo play (for example, keeping a child entertained when waiting at the doctor’s office or on a long car ride). Moms also credit toys with providing opportunities for active play that allow kids to exercise and burn off energy. Further, moms see toys as a great way to help kids spark their imaginations and flex their creative muscles. Knowing that the leaders of tomorrow will be those who think differently and solve problems in new ways, imagination is more important than ever before. Dr. Shore offers some tips for using play as a catalyst for fostering imagination and creativity:

Make sure your kids have time to play. In an increasingly overscheduled world with a variety of things competing for kids’ time, it is easy to overlook the importance of dedicating time just for play. Give your child the time and space to play, and watch his or her imagination soar. Provide a safe place to play and tools for play. Consider starting a play group in your neighborhood or hosting play dates at your home or local playground. Bring out the toy chest and see what games the kids can create when they play together. Encourage your kids to play with all that’s available - including their imaginations. Two of the most important tools for play are toys and an imagination. Help your children dream beyond what they see on screen and encourage them to bring those cartoon characters to life using their toys and imaginations. Get involved and play with your kids. Don’t forget that play is good for grown-ups too. Everyone loves a good old-fashioned tea party or toy car race down the hall. Playing together is one of the most fun and meaningful ways for parents and children to bond and foster creative thinking for both of you.

BWL

(BPT) - As smartphones and tablets are more frequently finding their way into kids’ hands, many parents may wonder about the implications of increased screen time, and question what role traditional toys should play in their children’s lives. While there is no denying the benefits of digital devices and it is becoming commonplace for parents to pass their tablets to Junior, research shows many want to limit the time their kids spend on screens, large and small. Parents also actively encourage their kids to play with toys that may help them reach critical developmental milestones. So how have traditional toys stood the test of time? The various ways in which children play have remained largely unchanged throughout time. In many cases, technology can help amplify play by helping to introduce characters or tell a compelling story. When Mattel, the world’s largest toymaker, asked moms their opinions about toys and technology, it found that even in a digital age, moms continue to place a high value on traditional toys. “Kids today are digital natives and are immersed in digital experiences,” says Dr. Michael Shore, vice president of Global Consumer Insights for Mattel. “However, when you walk into a child’s room and see what is visibly present and displayed on the shelves, you won’t see an app on the wall as an expression of who the child is, what he or she loves, or as markers of the childhood experience. For that, toys will continue to endure as ideal gifts for children. After all, you

(BPT) - Have a holly, jolly, high-tech holiday - and in case you didn’t hear - it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Some of the season’s hottest tech gifts are more affordable than ever this year. Spending on consumer electronics this holiday season is expected to grow 2.6 percent, according to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), with three quarters of American gifters planning to purchase tech gadgets. Big screen TVs continue to be on consumers’ top wish-lists. In fact, a nationwide survey conducted for LG Electronics USA found that about six in 10 (58 percent) said they are likely to consider giving a TV as a gift. Surprisingly, more than half of respondents (52 percent) said they’d prefer to receive an 84-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV (roughly $17,000) over an expensive piece of jewelry or watch (23 percent). More consumers also said they’d like to receive a $2,300 Internet connected “smart” TV than a European vacation. For more budget-minded Santas, here are five tech gift ideas with big appeal and big value. Just imagine how your teen, college student, parent or best friend will react when they open up one of these:

end of unwanted or simply unneeded gifts, why not donate them to someone else? Many organizations accept donations, including clothing and other belongings year-round. Consider donating that extra toiletries set, scarf or books to charity to clean up some clutter and help brighten someone else’s day. Put cleaning staples to work: You may think you need different cleaning products for different jobs, but just one classic cleaning product - Clorox Regular-Bleach - can tackle more messes than you think from laundry to helping sanitize and disinfect countertops, dishes and everything in between. For example, you can even use bleach to kill odor-causing bacteria left in your refrigerator after that big family meal and leave it smelling fresh and clean. Remove food from the fridge and wash the surfaces with a solution of 1/2 cup Clorox Regular-Bleach per gallon of soapy water. Let it stand for five minutes, rinse and then air dry for a few minutes before replacing the food. For more uses, visit www.BleachItAway.com. Organize holiday decorations: Before putting away decorations, invest

in better organization and storage materials. It may take a few more minutes to put away lights if they are wrapped around a spool, but consider how much faster it will be to hang them next year. By spending a few extra minutes this year, you will save yourself the stress in the future. In addition to these tips, remember to embrace the funny moments that come along with the mess. No matter what you’re celebrating this holiday season, no one is immune to messes, and the holidays are rife with them from dinnertime spills to that family member who enjoyed a bit too much eggnog. Instead of letting the messes get you down, take a moment to step back and enjoy the happiness of family visits and the extra time together. But because the messes will happen, remember to laugh at them. You can also share your best holiday messy moment at www.BleachItAway.com for a chance to win $20,000. In addition to great prizes, you can also find more of the know-how you need to tackle your holiday spills and houseguests (plus some laughs to get through it).

But with family visits and hearty meals also comes a big share of messes. After hefty helpings of gravy and chocolates, there will be plenty of cleaning required to get your home back in tip top shape for the new year. It’s enough to leave anyone “holidazed,” but with the right tools and tricks on your side, it does not have to. Here are some tips to help get your home clean again after those pesky holiday messes so all you have to worry about is enjoying the season: Create smaller tasks: Create a master list to help you break down cleaning into manageable chunks. Instead of tackling a full mess in one room, only to start again in the next one, complete the same task in each room. For example, dust every room before hitting them all with the vacuum. With this approach, you’ll see a cleaner home in no time without making too many trips back and forth from the broom closet. Donate unused items: With the holidays come gifts and housewarming presents. If you are on the receiving

Reflection during the Holiday Season Five simple ways to find deeper meaning in everyday life (BPT) - Turbulent, fast-paced, chaotic - the modern world is increasingly hectic. From this oft-crazy environment, a new movement is emerging - where people are pausing to find deeper meaning in everyday life. Self-empowerment and true emotional connections can counterbalance daily stress and uncertainty, providing happiness and a genuine sense of worth. If you find the days seem to slip away and life’s hurried pace to be draining, it’s time to find some simple ways to add meaning to your life. Here are five ideas for nurturing a deeper connection with yourself and others:

traveled to West Africa at the age of 17, and volunteered in a school for blind children. The experience led her to found Samasource, a nonprofit organization that helps individuals living in poverty. Janah recalls that “[Volunteering in West Africa] was a time of incredible personal growth and it set me on the path to do what I do.” Whether you choose to help stock a local food shelf, supervise at your children’s school or travel abroad to help build houses for the poor, volunteering is sure to make you feel more connected with the world around you.

1. Reconnect with your passion

Modern life can be very busy with every hour in every day dedicated to some activity. This can take its toll on your body, so it’s important to remember to take care of yourself, even if you’re taking care of others. Find your own way to relax and rejuvenate. This may be spending a few minutes each day balancing the mind and body through stretching and meditation. It might be taking a quiet walk, reading a book or having a cup of tea while journaling. Whatever you prefer, make sure to take “me time” throughout the day.

Did you enjoy painting when you were younger? Have you always wanted to take a photography class? Do you love to travel? It’s important to recognize and nurture those activities you love most so that you’re able to go out and do what you’re great at in the world. New York-based yoga instructor, Tara Stiles has infused her passion and energy into her work as a yoga, meditation and wellness instructor. “Passion is really about going after what you want to achieve in your life,” says Stiles. Whether it’s cooking, writing or gardening, make time for what you enjoy doing, rather than just doing what you have to. Even one hour a week dedicated to your passion will make you feel more centered and grounded.

2. Express ress your individuality

Individual beliefs and values make us each unique, and you can express those ideals through your fashion and jewelry choices. For example, the new Pandora Essence Collection is more than just a beautiful bracelet. You Yo can select from 24 hand finished charms, each representing inner-values like faith, fa love, ve, courage, confidence and wisdom. Each charm slides effortlessly into position on a slender silver bracelet, thanks to three silicone grip stoppers inside each charm. Whether for yourself or a gift for a loved one, the bracelet is the perfect reminder of what’s really important in life.

3. Give back

Volunteering in your community is a great way wa to connect with others and find deeper meaning in the everyday. Leila Janah, a social entrepreneur based in San Francisco, rancisco,

4. Find “me time”

5. Be an ambassador for your beliefs

What truly ignites your soul? It may be your passion for green living, healthy eating or your faith. Whatever your beliefs, it’s important to show the world who you are and what you believe in. Penelope Jagessar Chaffer, an award-winning filmmaker, shares her beliefs and connects with others through her work. “I’m always trying to find that common thread between myself and someone else when I’m interviewing them,” Chaffer says. “I find that love, and talking about love, is this thing we can use to help connect us.” Talk about your beliefs and values with others; you might be surprised by what you find. Rather than getting swept away in a hectic schedule, try focusing on what truly matters to you. These simple ways to add meaning to your life will help you reconnect with yourself and with those around you.

“Where wishes do come true”

Five reasons why scent is important for home decorating while you’re breaking out the holiday decorations or looking for just the right shade of yellow to make your kitchen look brighter on short winter days, don’t overlook another powerful decorator’s trick - scent.

 1. Essential oils can make your home more beautiful. An inviting, coordinated scent is as important to the look and ambience of your home as the color, finishes and furnishings you choose.  2. Essential oils are the perfect holiday home decoration. Scent is an inspired enhancement to your holiday home. Essential oils come from plants such as balsam fir boughs, fresh pine needles, peppermint leaves, cinnamon bark, vanilla beans and clove buds. Or, seek out pure, natural products like Aura Cacia’s Uplifting Candy Cane room spray, crafted with essential oil of peppermint and the essence of real vanilla beans.  3. Essential oils can make you happy in your home. Use scent to boost your mood when the post-holiday letdown, colder temperatures and the dwindling daylight of winter set in.  4. Essential oils can make your home healthier. Instead of reaching for a bottle of that blue stuff that smells like - well, window cleaner - try making your own glass cleaner from four tablespoons of vinegar and 12 drops of lemon essential oil.  5. Essential oils can help you sell your home. An atmosphere scented with natural essential oils is more appealing to buyers than a cloyingly sweet artificial scent and may be the subtle trick you need to boost a sale.

Morton’s Jarvis Cannon (right) guards Fenwick’s Mike Smith in a Nov. 27 game. Cannon has been a mainstay for the Mustangs, but the team has received key contributions from several players.

Role players a major part of Morton’s success By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com BERWYN – Morton’s boys basketball team had a lot of known commodities entering this season. At this point in the season, it’s the other players who have stepped up to boost the Mustangs. Senior Antario Simon has proven to be a key second interior player to support standout junior forward Weisner Perez. The Mustangs picked up their fourth win in a row Fri-

Next game Who: Morton at Downers Grove South What: West Suburban Gold game Where: 1436 Norfolk St., Downers Grove When: 7:30 p.m. Friday

day, beating Willowbrook 7758. Perez was the star with 25 points and 10 rebounds, but that’s no surprise. “I think what’s surprising to me is how well Antario is

playing because that gives you another big guy,” Morton coach Tony Martinucci said. Morton hadn’t played since a Dec. 1 win over Homewood-Flossmoor, but didn’t show signs of rust in the West Suburban Gold opener against the Warriors. The Mustangs next travel to Downers Grove South, a team that uncharacteristically will bring a losing record into that WSG game. Senior guards Greg Carter and Jarvis Cannon have been quality players as expected, but players like Simon and many of the junior newcomers

on the bench have added depth to the team. “Everybody knew Greg and Jarvis were going to be tough,” Martinucci said. “They’re physically strong and they can drive. There were questions in the front court.” Martinucci said Simon has answered those questions by providing the Mustangs with another quality rebounder. Teams can’t double Perez on the boards because Simon has proven a capable rebounder. “They’re going to double-team Weisner and not let Greg shoot, so Antario has

stepped up and been the third scorer,” Martinucci said. “Antario has really played team basketball.” The Mustangs still revolve around Perez and Carter. The duo give Morton an inside-outside combination that is tough to defend. Waller Perez, Weisner’s older brother, was the team’s leader a year ago, but now that he is playing for the University of Chicago. Weisner Perez and Carter have evolved into leaders. “Him and Greg have really come a long way,” Martinucci said.

Lyons Township Tournament: Jack Tosh Holiday Classic Location: York High School, 355 W. St. Charles Road, Elmhurst First game: 9 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 26 vs. Wheaton North What to watch: The Lions are off to a solid start to the season against tough competition. The newly expanded 32-team Jack Tosh Holiday Classic will continue to test LT. After opening with Wheaton North, the Lions will face either Rolling Meadows or Conant, last year’s tournament runner-up, on day two. LT could play as many as five games in the tournament, giving junior guard Harrison Niego a stage to show off his improvement from a year ago.

Tournament: Jack Tosh Holiday Classic

Location: York High School, 355 W. St. Charles Road, Elmhurst First game: 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 26 vs. Glenbard East What to watch: The Bulldogs will take on a strong program in a down year in Glenbard East. The Rams, a tournament newcomer, have a young squad and have struggled to match the success of a year ago. RB will face Kenwood or St. Ignatius on the second day. The Bulldogs were third in the 12-team version of the tournament a year ago, but it’s up to 32 teams this time around. Seniors Jack VandeMerkt and Will Kincanon have been big scorers for the Bulldogs, but a mix of younger players have contributed as well.

Morton Tournament: Proviso West Holiday Tournament Location: 4701 W. Harrison St., Hillside First game: 3:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23 vs. Gage Park What to watch: The Mus-

tangs are off to a solid start, but playing at Proviso West always takes the competition up a notch. Morton will take on tournament newcomer Gage Park to start and face either St. Charles East or Uplift in the second game. If Morton can make it to the quarters of the 32-team tournament, there could be a meeting with last year’s state runner-up, Stevenson. This tournament provides a major showcase for players. Senior guards Greg Carter and Jarvis Cannon will be looking to impress college scouts while Weisner Perez can solidify himself as one of the best junior forwards in the state with a good showing.

Nazareth Tournament: Proviso West Holiday Tournament Location: 4701 W. Harrison St., Hillside First game: 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23 vs. St. Joseph What to watch: The Roadrunners have had early success in non-conference games, but with East Suburban Catholic Conference play beginning and the Proviso West Holiday

Tournament ahead, it will be a tougher task to maintain their winning ways. Nazareth opens tournament action against St. Joseph. Either Lincoln Park or Hinsdale Central will face Nazareth in the second game.

St. Joseph Tournament: Proviso West Holiday Tournament Location: 4701 W. Harrison St., Hillside First game: 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23 vs. Nazareth What to watch: The Chargers appear to be one of the best teams in the state right now. Junior guards Glynn Watson and Jordan Ash lead a talented team that is still undefeated. In addition, 6-foot-9 sophomore Nick Rakocevic has impressed so far. Hinsdale Central or Lincoln Park will await in the second round.

Fenwick Tournament: Proviso West Holiday Tournament Location: 4701 W. Harrison St., Hillside First game: 5:15 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 26 vs. Von Steuben What to watch: The Friars

The Chargers could meet the Saints again in the Proviso West Holiday Tournament. have been competitive without Northwestern-recruit Scott Lindsey, who has been injured since the start of the season. Lindsey should be returning soon but may miss the tournament. Fenwick will take on either host Proviso West or Auburn in the second game.

SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA December’s holiday season gives girls basketball teams a chance to break away from conference play as a slew of tournaments come onto the schedule. Several area teams will compete in some of the best tourneys around.

Lyons Township Tournament: Bill Neibch Holiday Classic Location: Wheaton North High School, 701 W. Thomas Road, Wheaton First game: 4:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23 vs. St. Charles East What to watch: The Lions have succeeded with key contributions from young players so far and earned the No. 5 seed at this competitive 16-team tournament. LT opens against St. Charles East, which has

played all of its games away from home. LT will either face No. 4 West Aurora or Waubonsie Valley in its second game.

Riverside Brookfield Tournament: RB Holiday Classic

Location: Riverside Brookfield High School, 160 Ridgewood Road, Riverside First game: 2 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23 vs. Lane Tech What to watch: RB currently is in the middle of the Oak Lawn Holiday Tournament, but that will wrap up Dec. 21. From Dec. 12 to Dec. 28, the Bulldogs will play 12 games. The busy schedule will test the team’s depth. As for its own holiday tournament, the Bulldogs open up against Lane Tech in a crosspool game. RB is paired with St. Francis de Sales and Reavis in pool play.

Morton Tournament: RB Holiday Classic

Location: Riverside Brookfield High School, 160 Ridgewood Rd., Riverside First game: 12:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23 vs. Nazareth What to watch: Morton could be excused for considering Riverside Brookfield a second home court. Since the Mustangs also played in RB’s Thanksgiving tournament, they already have played five games at RB. Now, the Mustangs return for five more. Morton opens with Nazareth and will also play Lane Tech in pool play.

Nazareth Tournament: RB Holiday Classic

Location: Riverside Brookfield High School, 160 Ridge-

wood Road, Riverside First game: 12:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23 vs. Morton What to watch: The Roadrunners are an improved team with a 7-2 record. The only two losses came at the hands of defending Class 4A champion Marian Catholic and Bishop McNamara. Nazareth already has a Thanksgiving tournament title. Scheduled games against Morton, Lane Tech and St. Francis de Sales are all winnable.

St. Joseph Tournament: Montini Christmas Tournament Location: Montini High School, 19W070 16th Street, Lombard First game: 8:15 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23 vs. Marian Catholic What to watch: One could

say the Lady Chargers got an unlucky draw by lining up against the defending Class 4A champs in the first round. However, Marian Catholic is just one of several talented teams in the field.

Proviso West Tournament: Montini Christmas Tournament Location: Montini High School, 19W070 16th Street, Lombard First game: 11:30 a.m. Monday, Dec. 23 vs. Rolling Meadows What to watch: The Panthers are just one of many quality teams heading to Montini for this tournament. Opening against Rolling Meadows, last year’s Class 4A runner-up, is no easy task since the Mustangs have all five starters back from that team.

Expect a shootout when Bears face Eagles Hub Arkush

Why does it feel like the Browns were the Bears last exhibition game and now things start for real? Because the Browns are one of the weaker teams in the league this year. With Philadelphia this week and the Packers to close out the season, it’s almost as if the Bears will have to win two playoff games just to get to the playoffs. The Eagles figure to show up angry this Sunday after getting upset at Minnesota last week to snap their five-game win streak and lose the chance to open up a two-game lead in the NFC East. Like the Bears, Philadelphia is 8-6 and vying for first place in their division, but would lose a tiebreaker if they don’t win out. Also like the Bears, they control their own destiny. They play Dallas,

the club that owns the tiebreaker over them, the final Sunday of the year. There’s a very good chance none of that will matter to the team that loses this Sunday night’s prime-time showdown between the Bears and Eagles. In addition to being in a very foul mood, the Eagles still are one of the hottest teams in the league, having won five of their last six and seven of their last 10. They will test the Bears on both sides of the ball. Philadelphia is eighth in the NFL in points scored, second in total offense, 10th throwing the football and – oh no, woe is me – they are first in the league running the ball and in average gain per run. In case you haven’t heard, the Bears are dead last in the league defending the run. LeSean “Shady” McCoy leads the NFL with 269 carries for 1,343 yards, a 5.0 average. He has a long of 57 and seven rushing touchdowns. He leads second-place Adrian Peterson by 122 yards. And for some inexplicable rea-

herma Tru Doors

son, Eagles coach Chip Kelly elected to give the ball to McCoy just eight times last Sunday in Minnesota while throwing it 48 times, so he should be well-rested. The Eagles offense didn’t take flight until second-year pro Nick Foles was installed at quarterback. He’s now the NFL’s top-rated quarterback with a 117.0 rating, 23 touchdowns and just two interceptions. That ranks him significantly ahead of fellows named Manning, Rodgers, Brady and Brees, to name a few. We beginning to see the potential for trouble here? DeSean Jackson is having an All-Pro season, outpacing Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery with 75 catches for 1,275 yards, a 17.0 average and nine touchdowns. Riley Cooper has become a force as well with 743 receiving yards and seven touchdowns, and rookie Zach Ertz is emerging lately with four touchdowns. Fortunately, the Eagles aren’t near

as impressive on defense, ranking 17th in points allowed and 30th in total defense. The Eagles are 16th against the run and just 31st against the pass. Can anyone spell “shootout?” The Eagles don’t rush the quarterback particularly well, nor do they do a great job protecting Foles, having allowed 39 sacks while notching 32. The Bears, on the other hand, have protected very well, allowing only 24 sacks all year. But they have managed to get to the opposing quarterback only 26 times. Big plays will be huge in this one as well, as the Eagles are seventh in the league at plus 9 in turnover/takeaway ratio, while the Bears are 10th at plus 6. The real difference between these two clubs is that the Eagles can hammer you with the run or pass, while the Bears can run but are more dependent on the pass. The Eagles also are stingier giving up points. Throw in one of the rowdiest home crowds in the NFL, and the Bears have their work cut out for them.

Must-start: Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Matt Forte Solid Play: Robbie Gould,

Martellus Bennett Worth a look: Jay Cutler Last Resort: Bears defense (“avoid” if no Lance Briggs), Earl Bennett Avoid: Michael Bush Eagles (vs. Bears), 7:30 p.m. Sunday If Briggs suits up, the Bears might be able to hold LeSean McCoy under 300 yards. Must-start: LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson Solid Play: Nick Foles, Alex Henery Worth a look: Riley Cooper Last Resort: Zach Ertz, Philadelphia defense Avoid: Brent Celek

MATCHUPS TO AVOID Dolphins (at Bills), noon Sunday Miami is a risky play in any week, but be sure to check the weather in Buffalo before starting any Dolphins. Solid Play: Mike Wallace Worth a look: Lamar Miller,

Ryan Tannehill, Brian Hartline, Charles Clay Last Resort: Daniel Thomas, Caleb Sturgis Colts (at Chiefs), noon Sunday The Kansas City defense has cooled recently, but it still ranks fourth in fewest points allowed. Indianapolis is hard to figure, but this would seem to be a tough matchup. Worth a look: Andrew Luck, Trent Richardson (if D. Brown does not play), T.Y. Hilton Last Resort: Adam Vinatieri, Donald Brown* Avoid: Coby Fleener, Da’Rick Rogers, Indy defense Cardinals (at Seahawks), 3:05 p.m. Sunday It would be hard to recommend any Cardinals playing in Seattle’s hostile environment. Worth a look: Larry Fitzgerald Last Resort: Michael Floyd, Carson Palmer

Did anyone else lose in the fantasy playoffs because Ray Rice decided not to score a 43-yard touchdown on the final play of the game? Ouch. Well, I guess it serves us right for starting Ray Rice. Week 16 is the championship round for many fantasy leagues. If you are fortunate enough to remain alive, here’s a look at the fantasy potential of select NFL games.

Looking forward at marquee girls basketball games By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com The girls basketball season is already a few weeks old, and teams are getting set for holiday tournaments. Once the calendar flips to 2014 there will be plenty of games worth watching that could decide conference races and determine playoff seeding. Here’s a list of some of the most anticipated girls basketball games still ahead this season for Morton and other area teams.

Willowbrook at Morton, 6 p.m., Feb. 1 This is Morton’s “Pack the Place” doubleheader. The girls will start the doubleheader at Morton West before the boys finish it off. The Warriors were the guests for “Pack the Place” last year, as well, and Morton won both games. The Mustang girls’ upset last season ended up costing Willowbrook a share of the West Suburban Gold title.

Nazareth at Lyons Township, 7:30 p.m., Jan. 14 This may not be a cultured

rivalry because these two schools don’t play often in every sport, but it’s always fun when neighboring schools get together. First-year coach Paul Krick is trying to revitalize the Lions’ program while Kim Connell is hoping to take the next step in her second year in charge of Nazareth. The Lions have won this game the past two years and in four of the past six meetings.

Riverside Brookfield at Glenbard S., 7 p.m., Feb. 4 These two teams have been in the upper tier of the Metro

Suburban Conference since the Raiders joined the league for the 2011-2012 school year, and they appear to be the early favorites once again. The Bulldogs are off to a hot start while the Raiders returned a lot of talent from a 22-win team.

Fenwick vs. Rolling Meadows, 7:30 p.m., Jan. 20 This McDonald’s Shootout game at Willowbrook is a rematch at the same venue from a year ago. That meeting was one of the most exciting girls basketball games you will see. Point guard Jackie Kemph

scored 38 points in an 87-83 Rolling Meadows win despite the Friars leading by as many as 14 points. Kemph and the Mustangs were second in Class 4A last year, and both teams return plenty of talent.

Proviso West at St. Joseph, Jan. 23, 7:30 p.m. These two neighboring schools have high expectations this season. The Panthers are hoping to defend their West Suburban Silver title while the Chargers are expecting a return to prominence after a rare down season.

8PREP ROUNDUP

Nazareth boys start conference on right foot SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA Nazareth’s boys basketball team picked up an impressive win in its East Suburban Catholic Conference opener.

Adrian Cardenas (170 pounds) and Kevion Anderson (220) took home tournament titles. Freshman Joewan Smith was second at 113 pounds. Donny DiNardo took third at 120 and Noel Ibarra was third at 182.

Former area stars set to shine during college bowl season SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA The regular season is done, but college football is far from finished.

Dominique Ware, a senior, has played in all 12 games and has 36 tackles and a pair of interceptions.

The decorating blues By Patricia Sheridan

BRANDPOINT

Festive tabletops Do you have the blues this holiday season? How about the pinks? Non-traditional holiday colors are a popular trend in home decor this yuletide. Julie Robbins creates seasonal magic at Replacements Ltd. This season she is focusing less on traditional and more on festive. So how do you create your own festive flair? Robbins says think about where you want to go - are you an empty nester setting a formal gathering now that the children have left home, or are you looking for a fun, casual setting for the grandkids’ first time sitting at the big table? She suggests looking for things you already have at home you might not think of using together. “I’m not only mixing color families, but I’m also incorporating stoneware, fine china and mixed metals. For example, I start with a casual piece, like a solid Fiesta color, and dress it up by adding a more elaborately decorated piece to make the setting more sophisticated. I often use platinum trim to create a frosty winter feel, or a gold trim to warm up the setting and create a sense of warm and cozy.”

Scripps Howard News Service

All indications point to indigo, cobalt and rich peacock hues popping up on the pages of shelter magazines, fashion runways and home furnishing retailers in 2014. “Like a great blazer, dark blue makes its appearance on the popularity poll every 40 years. But like a blazer it never comes back exactly the same,” says Gale Steves, author of “Right-Sizing Your Home: How to Make Your House Fit Your Lifestyle.” Richer, more complex and saturated shades of this all-time classic were coloring frames, upholstery and case goods once again at the Fall Furniture Market in High Point, N.C. “From Ming Dynasty porcelain to Dutch delftware, cobalt blue has been fired into decor for centuries,” says Holly Blalock, owner of upholstery manufacturer CR Laine. This time around, the darker end of the spectrum is being featured. “Watch for brilliant blue to brighten home design, particu-

larly when paired with saturated orange tones and tailored white accents,” Blalock says. CR Laine showcased the look on chairs and sofas, while at Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, the Eve screen was upholstered in an intense blue trimmed in silver nail heads. Thibaut outlined its navy blue chair with white piping, accenting the chair’s scallop back. Dark blue is a less severe alternative to black. “Cobalt, like other dark blues, is mysterious and subtle,” says Steves. “They add a sense of class that pure black cannot

muster.” HGTV’s linen-wrapped threedrawer chest embellished with nail heads is at once exotic and familiar. An accent pillow from the Althorp Collection by Theodore Alexander used the deepest navy blue velvet as a backdrop for its gold monogram. The same shade in lacquer was applied to a Worlds Away chest with gold hardware for a striking look. The Keno Bros. collection employed blue as the contrast color on its Reveal slant-top desk.

“We love to see the look on people’s faces when they open the lid and discover the blue lacquer-painted interior,” said Leslie Keno. Luna Bella used an almost Victorian-looking dark blue velvet to cover its studded danger chic sofa, while Randall Tysinger used a peacock blue leather on the Calais bench with gold finish legs by E.J. Victor. It’s one color that can’t look tired or out of style no matter the application, which explains its enduring popularity.

— Brandpoint GARDEN GUIDE

Kill weeds now Just like other plants, weeds prepare for winter by storing food in their roots. To remove stubborn weeds, pull or dig weeds out of the ground or use a homemade weed-control solution, such as five parts white vinegar, two parts water and one part dish soap, and then reseed the spots to prevent regrowth.

— Brandpoint DECORATING TIP

Lighting a small bathroom Strategically install light to reflect and brighten a small bathroom to make it appear larger. Recessed lighting is an affordable solution for tiny rooms, offering ample light while taking up little space. Wall sconces alongside a mirror also reflect off the walls and make a room feel bright and airy.
