capital improvements to their properties to reduce stormwater run-off. Those improvements can then be used to receive credits from the village to reduce their stormwater fee. Tully said the program is also beneficial because it improves the entire stormwater system by reducing runoff. Tully said currently, the fee is costing the average church about $164 a month, though some larger churches, such as St. Mary of Gostyn Parish, pay more than twice that. Churches also take issue with the fact that the fee is scheduled to increase yearly

mayor Martin Tully said. “But the majority of the council continues to think that it’s not a wise or justified solution to exempt an entire category of property owners from contributing their fair share.” Tully said he would rather work toward solutions like expanding the cost-share program. Next month, commissioners are expected to discuss the option of expanding the costshare program by $200,000 to help mitigate the impact of the fee on nonprofits. The village would use the funds to help churches make

until there is no longer a gap in stormwater funding. The fee increases 6.4 percent in 2014. “Our mayor and council have imposed a thinly veiled tax [fee] on churches and other nonprofits to help fund a long delayed water retention program,” the letter reads. “This program was tabled for years by previous town leaders. It is built and designed to add more tax income each year and thus avoid the state mandated property tax limits. Many other citizens have already spoken out against this.” The letter goes on to say that as the village has cut back its social programming such as Meals on Wheels and senior transportation services, that burden fell on churches and other nonprofits. “We have stretched every dollar to help the poor, the homeless and the needy,” the letter states. “The village refuses to see what all the communities of faith have done for the whole village. “... How does it reflect on our community’s values in Downers Grove when we place our money shortfall on the backs of the poor and needy?” Tully said when those programs were cut by a previous village administration, the slack was picked up by many public and private organizations. “When the village, due to tough times, had to cut back social programs, I don’t think dollar for dollar you could say [the burden went directly to churches],” he said.

DOWNERS GROVE – Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of Americans, and for more than a decade, Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital has hosted an annual heart fair to address this national problem in DuPage County. The Big Boomin’ Heart Fair, from 8 to 11 a.m. March 1 at the Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center, will again provide health screening while educating attendees about the importance of disease prevention and early treatment. Dr. Peter Kerwin, medical director of the cardiac catheterization lab at Good Samaritan Hospital, said knowing your numbers, especially your LDL cholesterol, is essential to heart health. “I spend most of my career treating people with heart disease,” he said in a press release. “You want to know your numbers so you don’t need me to fix you.” The event will include a two-step testing process for monitoring diabetes and cholesterol, including nurse consultation, blood pressure, asthma and BMI screenings, question and answer sessions with cardiologists and posture and balance screenings. The heart fair is free to community members, but registration is required. To register, call 800-3238622 or visit www.healthadvisor.advocatehealth.com/ classes?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 and search for “big boomin’ heart fair.”

DOWNERS GROVE – Downers Grove churches are continuing their push against the village’s stormwater fee implemented a year ago that they say burdens their budgets used to offer social services for the poor. A 505-word Letter to the Editor signed by nine church leaders this week again made their case against the village levying the fee against tax-exempt organizations, citing a variety of arguments ranging from Constitutional separation of church and state, to the affect the fee has on budgets. The letter follows months of efforts by church leaders speaking at council meetings to ask for exemptions. “We ask that the mayor and council repeal this tax on churches and find another way to fund their water retention plan,” the letter states. Village officials say the new fee is a more equitable way to fund stormwater improvements because it’s calculated by the amount of stormwater runoff that a property creates. Before the fee, single-family home owners were paying for about 75 percent of village stormwater infrastructure improvements, despite only owning about 50 percent of the impervious ground in Downers Grove, officials said. But for nonprofits like churches who don’t pay property taxes, it is an entirely new expense. So far, the majority of the village council has remained unswayed. “I fully appreciate and understand where they’re coming from, because this is an expenditure they haven’t previously had to make,” Downers Grove

Police launch drug disposal program SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA DOWNERS GROVE – The Downers Grove Police Department is launching a new program for residents to assist them in safely disposing of old prescription medications. Improper disposal of medications can pollute drinking water with toxic chemicals, and storing unused medications can pose other safety issues, police said. It is estimated that each day 2,500 teenagers get high for the first time on unused

drugs they find in medicine cabinets at home or at their grandparents’ home, according to police. There are also incidents of accidental ingestion of these medications by children, the elderly or pets. To eliminate the availability of unused prescription medications, Downers Grove residents may contact the Downers Grove Police Department Crime Prevention Unit and make an appointment to bring the drugs to the police department for disposal. Residents may also request

an appointment for a crime prevention officer to come to their home to collect the medications. The disposal method used is safe, police said, will not threaten the drinking water, and eliminates the availability of the medications in our resident’s homes. Residents interested in participating in this program must make an appointment by contacting Crime Prevention Specialist Mary Wennerstrom at 630-434-5681 or mwennerstrom@downers.us

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

Subzero temps hits area, closes schools other events. 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. 6-7. That freeze brought temperatures as low as minus 15 and wind chills as low as minus 45. On Monday, Downers Grove police and fire departments said there had been no emergency incidents to report in the village due to the extreme cold. “I think everybody’s used to it from the last time,” Downers Grove Police Lt. Mike Willison said.

Ask Dr. Webster

SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA DOWNERS GROVE – The DuPage County Sheriff’s Office is asking for assistance from the public in locating a 41-year-old woman who left from the area of 59th Street and Route 53 in unincorporated Downers Grove Tuesday morning. About 4 a.m. Tuesday, Keisha Carmon left the area of 59th and Kingston Avenue near the border of Lisle and Downers Grove on foot. It is unknown what direction of travel or why Carmon left the residence, police said. Carmon is a black female, about 5-foot-5, 150 pounds, has brown shoulder-length hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black jacket, black-and-white hat, black boots and dark-blue jogging pants. Anyone who has seen Carmon is asked to call the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office at 630-407-2400.

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.

CHECK YOUR 1099S ... 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.

DOWNERS GROVE – The Downers Grove Library Board of Trustees is considering the possibility of using Library Foundation funds on the interior renovation project. Board members discussed the option during a meeting Jan. 22, though no vote was taken on the topic. Library Board President Kathleen DiCola said she’d be open to the idea of using foundation funds to re-introduce items that were removed from the plan when the initial round of bids came in over budget. She said she wouldn’t be interested in using foundation funds to pay for items like carpet, or other things the library should be able to provide. “Even if the bids come in [under budget] we may choose to add some things back in,” she said. “It would have to be something that was a real enhancement.” The Downers Grove Public Library Foundation is a separate entity from the library, though its boards share some members, including DiCola. The foundation is a donation-based organization that funds projects aimed at enhancing the library that would

be outside of the library’s normal budget. Susan Eblen, president of the Foundation Board and member of the library board, was on vacation and could not be reached for comment. The discussion last week followed a vote this winter to re-bid the $2.4 million interior project and create a new timeline for construction. The need to re-bid arose when the previous lowest bid came in at 20 percent above the project budget, according to library spokesperson Melissa Doornbos. Shales McNutt Construction, the construction management firm, is working with Product Architecture + Design and the library staff to incorporate needed changes into new bid documents, according to the library. These documents will be available to contractors Monday. Bid submission deadline and public bid opening are scheduled for Feb. 21. Meeting rooms will not be available until construction completion. Activity in the art gallery has been suspended. No other closures are planned. The re-bidding of the project pushes the planned construction start back to midApril with completion in September.

Water bottle maker, Ohyo, 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 in-

spired 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

DOWNERS GROVE – What started with a $10 bill donated in a gas station parking lot has snowballed into more than $7,820 given to FISH Food Pantries toward a new van in the last month. The $10 donor read a Dec. 25 Downers Grove Suburban Life story about the organization’s need for a new van and stopped one of the volunteer drivers in a parking lot the next day to give his gift. Several days later, volunteers received a $1,000 check from another donor who had read the story and included the clipping in the envelope, volunteer June Miller said. The latest big gifts were a $3,000 anonymous check and a $1,000 gift from a local church. FISH has now set a fundraising goal of $10,000 for the van fund, and donations are tax deductible. Checks can be made out to Downers Grove Area FISH, 4340 Prince St., Downers Grove, IL 60515 “I want to say thank you to all the people who gave,” Miller said. “Some of them, we don’t even have their names. It’s absolutely amazing.”

Volunteers drive the van about 200 miles a week to area grocery stores, churches, schools and other food donors, hauling back hundreds of pounds of food to the pantry for distribution. Unfortunately, the 1999 Ford has seen better days after accumulating about 114,000 miles of city driving. “The bottom line is we need a van. We cannot operate without one,” Miller said last month. The charity is making repairs necessary to keep it running, but it is clearly in need of a new – or at least newer – van. Recent repairs have included a new starter, which died when volunteers were making a pick-up. FISH also had to replace the brakes, which went out while someone was driving the van. Other problems have gone unrepaired because of lack of funds. FISH supports a regular clientele of 135 families with food, in addition to other community support. FISH Food Pantry helps families from Downers Grove, Lisle and Darien with food. Families from Westmont and Woodridge can receive clothing and other help.

8LETTERS Bad politics in Matune-Sandack race

Write to us

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 hat your college life was not lily white.

We want to hear from you. Letters must be no more than 300 words. They must include your first and last name, town and a phone number for verification. We may edit them for clarity, accuracy and style. Email letters to letters@mysuburbanlife.com. The deadline is 4 p.m. Thursday for the following week’s paper. Bill Ackerman - backerman@shawmedia.com

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. He is the epitome of what the average citizen is and should be. I am tired of this style of politics. Illinois will never be great again with our current trough of politicians. We deserve better!

Sick of ACA criticism To the editor: Peter Roskam’s “Community Voice” piece in the Jan. 1 Downers Grove Suburban Life should have been on the Opinions page or otherwise labeled that way.

Agree about snow parking in Brookfield

SD • Wednesday, January 29, 2014 • mysuburbanlife.com • Suburban Life

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!

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?

• SOUND OFF Continued from page 11 train station is refreshing. It is certainly more than I can say for the Village of Downers Grove or DuPage County who have been called several times about this issue. Having pedestrians walk in the road and in the dark because the sidewalk is impassable is extremely dangerous. I guess it will take a tragedy for something to be done about this problem.

Why can’t school offer B-team for sports? How is that the [Wheaton-Warrenville School District] cannot find a way to offer B-team sports to our students who want to play competitive athletics? Our four middle schools only offer cross country, wrestling, track and one team for girls volleyball, girls basketball and boys basketball. What about other school districts? In addition to what we have to offer, Glen Ellyn’s Hadley School offers softball and soccer, and B-team soccer; West Chicago offers cheerleading, boys volleyball and soccer; Downers Grove offers boys volleyball; and St. Charles, Batavia, Geneva, Naperville and Indian Prairie School Districts all offer B-team sports. Football and baseball even make it into the mix of neighboring schools. We want to keep our kids fit and we want to keep them involved in after-school activities. Please give them that opportunity Wheaton-Warrenville School Board. At the Jan. 22 board meeting, we are asking you to find your school spirit and give back to the Bulldogs, Eagles, Huskies and Panthers!

Plowing needed I think it is absolutely shameful that the Village of Westmont cannot do anything with the sidewalks along Cass Avenue, particularly going south on 55th Street. These people that use the sidewalks to get to where they’re going, they don’t have a car so they are walking

on Cass Avenue and the cars are trying not to hit them. You can’t take a Bobcat or something and go down the sidewalk and clear a little bit of a path? I’m sure the village of Westmont will say the loss of home rule is to blame for that because that’s their common excuse for everything. But it is absolutely shameful. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Lemont residents should be concerned Well, [Lemont has] $1.3 million in uncollected parking tickets, ordinance violations and unpaid utility bills dating back to 1990 – 24 years. Our water and sewer rates have gone up. Village taxes have gone up. Building permit fees have gone up over these 24 years. Lemont residents, aren’t you concerned? I know I am. I paid my bills.

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

| CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK

20

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 A Statement by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA)

Suburban Life

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 oice 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.

Recovering heroin addict Cody Lewis spoke Thursday at the DuPage County Administration Building in Wheaton during one of two forums organized by the DuPage Coalition Against Heroin. to change the dialogue and inform people. He has experienced the deadly impact of the drug first hand, he said, particularly on the county’s younger population.

“Most of the age range of people that die are in their younger ages because there’s only three things that happen to people that take heroin: they go into recovery, they end up with State’s

Attorney Berlin and you go to jail, or you end up with me in the morgue,” he said. Knowledge about the dangers of the highly addictive drug is a major component in fighting its influence, Jorgensen said. “I personally believe that part of the problem that we have is that all drugs have been dumped into one container and we confuse the

Cody Lewis, now a 21-yearold recovering addict, said his first experience with heroin came in high school. “I tried it, and as soon as I felt that high from the heroin, it was like a void inside me was filled up,” he said. “Something that I was looking for my entire life, I found it in that little bag.” Lewis shared his story at the first of two forums hosted by the DuPage Coalition Against Heroin on Thursday at the DuPage County Administration Building in Wheaton. The coalition, led by several county government entities, presented to both local educators and residents about the growing need for educating the community – especially children – about the dangers of heroin. The effort was funded, in large part, by a recent county budget allocation of $100,000 after the toll for heroin-related deaths in the county reached a record of 46 in 2013. Of the 206 pending drug possession cases in the county, 41 percent involve heroin, said State’s Attorney Robert Berlin. For comparison, in 2004, he said the county had less than five such cases. To combat the problem, the coalition announced the launch of a new website, www. HeroinDuPage.org, and a social media campaign that presents a variety of information, such as the dangers of heroin, the state’s Good Samaritan law, treatment facilities and resources for family and friends of addicts. In addition, it offered educators tool kits with similar information, encouraging them to bring the knowledge back to their school districts. “We want to make this a lot more public, shine a spotlight on it so people will know where to get help and start the healing process,” said Grant Eckhoff, a member of the DuPage County Board and the coalition. County Coroner Richard Jorgensen said heroin is a problem all over the county and across all socioeconomic backgrounds. The only solution to the epidemic, Jorgensen said, is

fact that there are really exceedingly dangerous and killer drugs and then there are other drugs,” he said, adding that President Barack Obama recently said marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol. Bill Patrianakos, a member of the Heroin Epidemic Relief Organization Board of Directors and a recovering heroin addict, said lessons about how all drugs were equally dangerous and bad did him little good. Patrianakos said his addiction, which started with marijuana and escalated to opiates, came from feelings of depression, and that his drug use helped him self-medicate. “Kids use for a lot of different reasons,” he said. But by having a mature conversation about the real consequences of drugs, he said, especially the dangers of heroin, there is a chance to reach more people.

This program is by appointment only. To take advantage of this free service, contact the program coordinator for an appointment: Mary Wennerstrom Drug Disposal Coordinator (630)-434-5681 mwennerstrom@downers.us Residents who are unable to drop off their medications may request a Crime Prevention Officer to come to their home for collection. Improper disposal of medications can pollute drinking water with toxic chemicals. Storing unused medications can pose other safety issues. It is estimated that each day 2500 teenagers get high for the first time on unused drugs they find in medicine cabinets at home or at their grandparents’ homes. There are also incidents of accidental ingestion of these medications by children, the elderly, and pets. The medications will subsequently be disposed of using the protocols followed for disposing of drugs held in evidence. There is no charge for this service.

Plan Commission gives positive recommendation

Special Kids Day is a non-for-profit organization providing celebratory events for children with disabilities and their families in environments designed to accommodate their special needs.

By KRISTIN PEDICINI kpedicini@shawmedia.com WOODRIDGE – Darien, Downers Grove and Woodridge 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 Corp. sought to have the property rezoned to an R-3 Residential District. Commissioners eventually gave the project a positive recommendation via two separate votes, despite opposition from local residents. The Timber’s Edge subdivision would bring 149 single-family homes to the area, along with a legacy park dedi-

cated to the Ide family. Each lot would be an average of 2,779 square feet with the average cost of homes projects at $449,990, according to Peter Tremulis of Pulte Holmes. Residents in the meeting opposed the subdivision for various reasons, including how the project could potentially endanger animals in the area. A second concern for the residents was presented by Robert Ytesch. He questioned if the developers have taken into consideration the already existing homes in terms of drainage and stormwater management. “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.”

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. The company got a recent boost in the U.K. when the pharmacy chain Boots expanded the number of its stores that offer

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

The Affordable Care Act is now the law of the land. Like most new laws, there will be hiccups early on, it will evolve and in the end it will be a shining example of how the world’s greatest nation – lagging most of the civilized world – provides the most essential service to all its citizens. Roskam is correct that there are problems -- but not with ACA but rather with the computer systems that are registering people. Those need to be addressed. Roskam is one of the GOP legislators who are expending all their energies on repealing or otherwise dismantling this legislation, rather than moving on and finding solutions to the real problems that are plaguing this country. You’re my congressman, Peter, so please move on. Represent me, not the Tea Party. Make me want to vote for you. Obstructing ACA is so 2013. Look for something else to harp on or, better still, find something to fix or to build. Or, if you’re really passionate about this health care law, volunteer to make it better. I thought that’s what congressmen were supposed to do. Dave Fusaro Downers Grove

In favor of new legislation To the editor: In a few months legislation will be introduced in the U.S. Congress that will help fight the impact of Citizens United by elevating the voices of everyday Americans over big-money donors. I’m very much in favor of this legislation. Corporations aren’t people and should not be treated as such. Sarah Barrett Downers Grove

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

Blake, Engo, Kelly making plays for teams By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com Each basketball season provides an opportunity for new players to step into the spotlight. From juniors and seniors seeing significant playing time for the first time to underclassmen making an impact, these boys basketball players are having breakout seasons for their teams.

Devin Blake School: Downers Grove North Class: Sophomore Position: Forward Impact: An athletic sophomore

Paul Engo III School: Downers Grove South Class: Senior Position: Guard Impact: Engo has gone from being a reserve role player to a prime contributor for the Mustangs this season. He led the team in scoring in two of three games at the Proviso West Holiday Tournament earlier this season, and that was no accident. Engo has put in the required work to become a key player. A solid ball-handler with deep range, Engo has added an ability to score off the dribble. “He is such a hard worker,” South head coach Kris Olson said of Engo, who the coach said is averaging about 16 points per game. “When he was a freshman player, I want to say he was on our B team,

with plenty of upside, Blake has made an immediate impact on the varsity squad after spending last season on the freshman team. Demonstrating the ability to knock down an outside shot and score in the paint, the 6-foot-4 Blake is listed as a forward on the roster but has some of the skills and shooting range of a guard. Through 12 games he led the Trojans in both scoring and rebounding, averaging 11.2 points and 6.8 rebounds per contest.

John Kelly School: Westmont Class: Senior Position: Guard/forward Impact: Last season’s second or third player off the bench has matured into an invaluable starter for the Sentinels, averaging over 11 points and seven rebounds per game. Kelly’s best offensive output came early in the season when the hybrid guard/forward scored 27 points

against Reed-Custer. But he has surpassed the 20-point total in two of the team’s last three outings as well, including a team-high 21 in an Interstate Eight Conference tournament game against Sandwich last week. “Our team plays much better when John is on the floor,” Westmont head coach Craig Etheridge said. “He has also assumed a much larger leadership role this season. He is a very smart player and is capable of leading both verbally and with his play on the court.”

Suburban Life ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

Downers Grove South | Senior | Basketball Why Spinuzza was selected: Spinuzza drained six 3-pointers and scored a game-high 18 points in the Mustangs’ 64-32 win over Leyden.

What was different for you guys in the second half? The second half we got everything going and it was fun being out there. Shots happened to fall, which made it a lot better, and it was a good

team win.

Have you ever had a streak like that, where everything you put up seemed to go in? I don’t think I’ve had a streak like that. It was definitely fun being out there playing like that.

Did it feel like the basket was as big as a hula hoop? You put the shots up, you make one or two and you feel good, and then you just hope it keeps going in. But in the end, it’s a team win.

How are you feeling as a team at this point in the season? We’re in the home stretch and we’re coming along. We’re improving every game, and the better competition we play will help us get ready for the playoffs.

DANNY SPINUZZA

Saying Danny Spinuzza was on fire in the second half of Friday’s game against Leyden might be putting it mildly. The senior was an inferno as he made five of his six shots, all 3-pointers, in less than 12 minutes of game time to help the Mustangs pull away from narrow halftime lead for a lopsided victory. Spinuzza, the Sears Hardware and Appliance Athlete of the Week, spoke with Suburban Life sports editor Jason Rossi about his performance and the direction the Mustangs are headed.

8PREP ROUNDUP

In a battle between the two remaining undefeated teams in the West Suburban Silver conference, Downers Grove North’s girls basketball team dropped its first conference game of the season on Saturday to Proviso West, 57-52. North (16-3, 7-1) led 19-15 after the first quarter, and 37-24 heading into halftime, but the Trojans could not replicate the stellar shooting performance in the second half, scoring just four points in the third quarter. They were also outscored 20-11 in the final frame. Starters Sarah Costello, Jaida Green and Peyton Winters accounted for 92.3 percent of the Trojans’ points. Costello led all scorers with 17 points, and added 13 rebounds and six assists. Winters added 15 points and 13 rebounds, while Green recorded 16 points. The Trojans will not have to wait long to exact some revenge on the Panthers as they are scheduled host Proviso West at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. It will be the second game in as many days for North, which travels to Hinsdale Central for a 7:30 p.m. Friday tip-off.

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.

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
