DOWNERS GROVE – A pile of Civil War letters stashed in a closet for generations gave Downers Grove resident Jim Dohren insight into his family’s past and material for his first book. Dohren’s mom’s cousin first showed him the letters, which were wrapped in hot dog bags and paper towels and then stowed in a shoebox in a basement closet almost 30 years ago. The relative told Dohren, a retired history teacher at Herrick and O’Neill middle schools, that no one had taken much interest in them over the years and they were his to take. “I didn’t think too much about them until I started to read through them,” said Dohren, 70. “It was pretty apparent to me that they were Civil War letters. I just poured through them.” He spent the next several years painstakingly transcribing them onto his Apple II computer, and then doing it all again when he got a better computer years later. He also spent several years cross-referencing places mentioned in the letters to compile where the writers were when they wrote. The book, “Letters from a Shoebox,” includes Dohren’s final, edited transcriptions along with historical information, Dohren’s own reflections and drawings by an illustrator. It’s published by Sunbury Press. Many of the letters are written between Dohren’s great-great aunt, Anne Huffman, and her future husband, William Bowman, as he fights in the war. There are also many sent and received from Anne and her sisters. More letters come from Huffman’s two brothers, John and David Huffman. The two enlisted together, like many brothers did back then. Only John survived, and his letters document his march with Sherman’s army through Atlanta and to the sea. “He’s very critical of how the rebel general left the Atlanta citizens at the mercy of the Union bombardment,” Dohren said. “People had to live in dugouts and bomb shelters in their backyards.”

Downers Grove resident Jim Dohren writes the book “Letters from a Shoebox.”

Where to buy it “Letters from a Shoebox” is available online from Sunbury Press Book Store, Amazon.com and Ingraham Book Sellers. It is also available at Anderson’s Book Shop in Downers Grove and Wannemaker’s Home and Garden Center.

Through reading the letters, all written at different levels of literacy and penmanship, Dohren learned of a minor family scandal, when Anne had to leave Ohio for Indiana with an illegitimate son. He also found firsthand accounts of the notorious Andersonville military prison, where Bowman was sent after being captured by the Confederate Army. Many of the letter writers are constantly preoccupied with the hardships of disease, and who had succumbed to one ailment or another. “It really brought home to me how overwhelming these concerns were,” he said. “How they wrote about them

over and over again. “And yet they still had a lot of joyful things to write – get-togethers, singalongs.” He said many of the men’s letters detail camp life and try to avoid worrying folks back home with gruesome battle details. Dohren found those written by Bowman to be the most interesting. They were the hardest to read, and the most grammatically rough. Though when he wrote to his future wife, Anne, Dohren could tell he took extra care and effort to write more legibly. Bowman may have been as young as 16 when he enlisted and the letters show his progression from a naive teen worried about the boozing and other behavior at camp to a more critical and serious young man upon his release from Andersonville prison. “These people are not famous people,” Dohren said. “They’re like us. They are who we are today. It’s just ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.”

An official from Hanson Material Service said a blast occurred at its quarry in McCook shortly after 12:30 p.m. Monday. “We did blast, but the matter is under investigation, so I can’t comment any further,” he said. The blast, initially labeled a 3.7 magnitude earthquake by the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Earthquake Information Center before being changed to a 3.2 magnitude quarry blast, was felt across the Chicago area. “We’re pretty sure it was a quarry blast,” said Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the center, “but there’s still controversy.” Caruso said the tremor was felt as far as Kenosha, Wis. The U.S. Geological Survey website indicated the tremor originated in Countryside. Hanson’s quarry is located at 9101 W. 47th St. in McCook. A 3.2 magnitude tremor is considered light and does not typically cause damage, according to the U.S. Geological Survey website. Social media accounts of users across the western suburbs became active following the blast, with reports of the tremor being felt from Berwyn to Downers Grove. “Indian Head Park, most definitely,” Facebook user Jane Nelsen reported on the Suburban Life’s Facebook page. “I live in Wilshire Green and could feel the whole building shake.”

Tougher tests cause scores to fall statewide and in D-58 By ED MCMENAMIN emcmenamin@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – Illinois grade schoolers’ test scores fell dramatically this year as the state increased the difficulty of the Illinois State Achievement Test and raised benchmarks that determine which students meet or exceed state standards. The same was true in Downers Grove, as the percentage meeting or exceeding the benchmark fell from 93.1 percent last year to 77.7 percent in 2013. But those scores still place District 58’s students well above their peers

statewide, where the percentage meeting or exceeding fell from 82.5 percent last year to 58.8 percent in 2013. The new, more difficult test incorporates the Common Core learning standards, a more rigorous approach to math and reading instruction. District 58 is currently in the process of incorporating Common Core standards in math and reading into its curriculum. Next year the ISAT will be based entirely on the Common Core State Standards. “Our students are more and more prepared for the Common Core standards and increased rigor,” District 58

Superintendent Kari Cremascoli said. “I think we, as a district, are very proud of our students’ success. They are continuing to exhibit strong academic improvement.” The best elementary school scores in District 58 came from Pierce Downer school, where 87.9 percent of students met or exceeded the benchmark, down from 96.6 percent last year. The lowest were recorded by El Sierra Elementary, at 69.7 percent, down from 90.6 percent in 2012. Herrick and O’Neill middle schools had 75.2 and 72.3 percent of students who met or exceeded, respectfully. That’s

cess, as it shows District 58 students improving at a better clip than those statewide. She said with the continuing changes in ISAT benchmarks and test content, the district has begun to consider the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test as a more reliable measure of student progress and performance. District 58 administers the MAP test three times a year, providing a more in-depth and consistent look at how students are learning. By eighth grade, District 58 students are outperforming the national 11th grade average in reading, mathematics and language usage on the MAP test, she said.

down from 92.9 percentage for both schools in 2012. Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Matt Rich said the addition of Common Core questions to the ISAT does allow the district to compare its progress in Common Core against the state on a subject-by-subject and grade-by-grade basis. However only 20 percent of the test’s questions were Common Core this year, a small sample size. “What we will be doing is looking at where we have gaps and targeting those gap areas,” he said. Cremascoli pointed to the state’s new growth metric as a sign of local students’ suc-

HALLOWEEN Q: Are there steps I can take to minimize the dental danger of Halloween? A: Halloween can be a fun night for kids. Alas, despite the efforts of many in the community, dentists included, candy remains the chief currency of the holiday. On the bright side, it’s only once a year. You can hold down the potential damage to your kids’ teeth by doing some of these things: • Serve them a good meal before they go out. They’ll be less likely to gorge on their take even as they’re making their rounds. • Take control of the Halloween bag when they come in. Don’t let your children create a stash that they can dip into all night, after they’ve brushed their teeth. During the night, the bacteria in a child’s mouth will quickly convert the sugar into the harmful acids that cause decay. The least harmful time to consume sugar is when it’s part of a meal. For one thing, saliva flow increases during a meal, helping to wash away particles of food-- or candy -- and neutralizing the effect of the acid. • After a meal, instead of offering the kids some other type of desert, let them raid the Halloween bag for a reasonable sampling of its treasure. • The most important factor, though, is to instill in your children from a young age the importance of observing a daily regimen of oral health care, including brushing and flossing. You might emphasize this at Halloween. On your next visit to the dentist, ask for more ideas about how to keep Halloween from being troublesome.

DOWNERS GROVE – Books for classroom libraries, activity monitors for elementary school P.E., books and materials for a second-grade Genius Hour and a half-sized bass for the instrumental music program were among the 16 grant requests funded by the District 58 Education Foundation for this school year, according to a news release from District 58. Altogether the Foundation, founded in 2002, gave away more than $26,000 in grants this school year. Since its inception in 2002, the foundation has raised and distributed more than $450,000 to District 58 schools. Funding is made possible via foundation events and programs such as Entertainment for Education, Cash for Kids and online contributions. In addition to the annual grants, programs sponsored by the Foundation include Sneak Preview for seventh-graders, the Select 58 service and citizenship awards for eighth-graders, and the Distinguished Service Awards for staff.

things and more space for activities of people,” she said in an email. The plan also consolidates the computer stations and moves the audio-video selection to an adjacent spot, according to drawings presented by Product Architecture + Design to the library board this summer. Work is expected to be complete in October 2014. The board allocated funds for the renovation from accumulated reserves and current revenues. “We’re very excited about this project, we think it will really produce a positive result for the community,” Ashton said. “And we know it will be a period of inconvenience for everyone, but we think it will certainly be worthwhile.” The library opened in 1999. Its mechanical and electrical systems, roof, windows and structure are in good shape, according to Doornbos.

DOWNERS GROVE – Contractor bids for the $2.4 million interior renovation of the Downers Grove Public Library go out this week, and officials say the building’s meeting rooms will temporarily close beginning in December to prepare for the project. The library will remain open during construction, which is scheduled to begin Feb. 1. “It’s kind of a complicated Rubik’s Cube of moving things from one area and into another area and twisting and turning to make everything fit,” Library Director Rick Ashton said. “What the library staff are working on is how we will arrange the parts of the building that are under construction at any particular moment so we can provide something as near to a

The new interior will have a new space for science, technology, engineering and math. A refreshed story-hour room should improve the children’s services area. Plans also call for renovated restrooms, new carpet, paint, lighting and furnishings in other areas, among other improvements. While patrons still check out lots of physical media – more than 100,000 items in July alone – technology has changed the way many people use the library, according to spokesperson Melissa Doornbos. The project will reduce the library’s physical collection to provide for more collaborative spaces. “We need less space for storage of

hese next few months include the time of year where many of us are in larger groups and noisier places than normal. With the carving of the turkey and the trimming of tree and other festivities, hearing our friends, family, music, and lively conversation can be the most cherished part of the holiday season. A person with hearing loss may not feel the same way. It can be a time of frustration, feeling let out, and isolation. Background noise can cause listening diiculty even for persons with normal hearing; so for persons with any amount of hearing loss, the diiculty is oten greater. If you will be spending time with a friend or loved one during the holidays that has hearing diiculties, here is a few tips to help them out: ~ Gain their attention before starting a conversation either through eye contact or a small tap on their arm. ~ Look at them directly when you speak without covering your face. ~ We all become excited when speaking, but be sure to speak just a bit slower and clearly. ~ he holidays can be a good time to have a thoughtful conversation on how hearing afects the family dynamics and how you don’t want them to miss out.

With the support of family and friends, a person with hearing problems may be more able to accept their need to get hearing loss treatment and may be more willing to take the irst steps to better hearing. If you are the one with the hearing diiculties, there are things you can do to help yourself. ~ First and foremost have your hearing evaluated BEFORE you are in those diicult situations to see if hearing devices would be a beneit for you. Most hearing loss is gradual over years of time, and many don’t realize how bad it has become until they are put in those group situations. Hearing devices are much better sounding and looking than they were before. ~ Try to pick the least noisy place to sit if possible. ~ Ask people to speak one at a time. ~ Ask for any background music to be turned down. Untreated hearing loss can leave you out of the laughter and conversation around you. Don’t let this holiday time be a time of frustration. Why not put a hearing evaluation on the top of your “to do” list this holiday season? Call your local audiologist for an easy and painless hearing evaluation.

The scene near a property owner around the Valley View pond in Downers Grove shows the high water level after the rain storm Oct. 30.

Residents skeptical of Valley View pond naturalization By ED MCMENAMIN emcmenamin@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – Neighbors surrounding Valley View pond are dreading spring’s heavy rain after last week’s storm led its water level to encroach back yards. Ron Zarek’s backyard sits on the pond, and he and other neighbors are worried that the village’s effort this fall to turn it into a wetland may have contributed to the high water mark. Downers Grove Assistant Director of Public Works Andy Sikich said the high water was caused by debris, trash and a piece of seed blanket from the project that clogged a drain, and not the project design itself. “The naturalization of the

pond in no way increased flooding,” Village Spokesman Doug Kozlowski said. “3.1 inches of rain fell on Downers Grove in approximately 24 hours from Wednesday evening into [Thursday] evening, which is a significant rainfall event.” Zarek, his neighbor Louis Stankaitis and others remain skeptical of a project that nearly 40 Valley View residents opposed last year. “The concern is if a really good rain event happened, then it will start coming in our basement windows,” Stankaitis said. The pond filled in with sediment over the years and became home to foul-smelling algae.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Understanding the data in District 58 District 58 is committed to offering a rigorous, robust curriculum that promotes learning, growth, achievement and challenges for every student. Each fall, the state of Illinois releases an annual report card that provides insight to parents and communities as to the general health of their school district by spotlighting data COMMUNITY such as budget revenues and VOICE expenditures, demographic Matt information and achieveRich ment data. This tool offers some common data points by which to compare schools. However, the picture that is painted can also be limited in breadth and depth. At our Curriculum Workshop on Oct. 28, we reviewed our curriculum initiatives, our continuous improvement efforts and our students’ performance on a variety of assessments. Here are just a few of the highlights: • District 58 students met or exceeded state standards on the ISAT at a rate of nearly 20 percent higher than the state average, and even greater than last year’s 15 percent differential with the state. • Growth was a new measure added to this year’s state report card and here again District 58 significantly outperformed the state average. This means District 58 students are academically much stronger than the state average and are growing at a more rapid pace than the state average. • Strong math and reading performances indicate that District 58 students are ready for Common Core, and the district has been reviewing the item analysis provided by the ISAT related to Common Core. • District 58 performed significantly better than the state as a result of the changes in cut scores and content of the ISAT test overall. Because of the content and cutscore changes, this year’s ISAT scores are a standalone data point and cannot be directly compared with last year’s ISAT scores. The 2013 scores will not be directly comparable with the 2014 ISAT scores, either, as Illinois is currently in a transition resulting in annual changes to the assessment system. In March 2014, our students will participate in an ISAT based solely on the Common Core Standards, which will change the content by 80 percent. For more information regarding the assessments in which District 58 students participate and how that data is used, please visit www.dg58.org/assessment.

Is there a better town to be in than Downers Grove come Halloween season? From the classic Great Pumpkin Fest to the Living Cemetery event to the costume contest at the Tivoli Theatre, there was plenty to do for local families looking to scare up a good time. Last week we shed some light on what’s being called a rising epidemic in Downers Grove: heroin use. As we were wrapping up our reporting we got word of a forum planned to discuss the drug problem and bring it front and center. Thanks to state Reps. Patti Bellock and Sandy Pihos for hosting the forum, scheduled for 7 p.m. Nov. 18 at Good Sam Hospital. Anyone who has been or is at risk of being exposed to heroin should attend.

American companies will be more competitive selling their products and services on the global stage, and therefore able to expand here in the U.S. And by reducing the burden of the tax code on small businesses, we can strengthen Main Street businesses and improve the economy for everyone. While President Obama has talked positively about tax reform, so far he has only indicated a willingness to reform the corporate tax structure to try to increase rates and raise more tax revenues for the government to spend. Reforming the corporate tax code to make American businesses more competitive is important, but so is reforming the personal income tax code to create a flatter, fairer system and let families and individuals keep more of their hard-earned money. In the coming weeks and months, members from both the House and Senate will work to produce a longterm budget agreement that addresses our unsustainable debt and deficits, and tax reform is a unique opportunity for common ground in these negotiations. In 2011, President Obama and House Republicans passed the Budget Control Act, which reduced spending for two consecutive years for the first time since the end of the Korean War. We have made significant progress in reducing spending, but one major area that also needs immediate attention is the growth that tax reform represents. All the elements are in place to do something for the long-term good of our country. Through bipartisan tax reform, a stronger economy for everyone is within reach.

LEADING WITH VALUES

INTELLECTUAL EXCELLENCE

COMMUNITY

SD • Wednesday, November 6, 2013 • mysuburbanlife.com • Suburban Life

America is a place where hard work, success and achievement are rewarded, and your hard-earned tax dollars are supposed to be respected and spent wisely. Unfortunately, our economy has been stuck in neutral for far too long, causing stifled growth and shrinking opportunity. It’s clear that the current playbook of an ever-growing federal government and ever-climbing taxes isn’t working. The president has pursued these policies for almost five years, and the results are plain to see in stagnant job growth and the massive growth of the federal government. Instead, we must build a 21st century economy where America can compete globally and create jobs here at home. One way to do that is by reforming our outdated tax code to get complex provisions out of the way, to close unfair loopholes and get the economy moving again. It’s been over 25 years since the last time our tax code was reformed, and since then, the code has been amended a staggering 15,000 times. It has become so complex and burdensome that Americans and businesses spent more than seven billion hours completing the paperwork and billions of dollars in compliance costs last year alone. The status quo is absolutely indefensible. We can do better. As a member of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, I have participated in more than 20 hearings on simplifying our tax code since 2010. In this effort, we have elicited feedback from ordinary Americans, small business owners and worldwide American companies to promote openness and transparency. All this fact-finding has reinforced the urgent need to modernize our tax rules to create a fairer, more even-handed system that protects Americans and ends special breaks for Wall Street. By eliminating loopholes and reducing our corporate tax rate – which is the highest in the industrialized world –

8LETTERS Reader blasts president To the Editor: Before his election in 2008, this president promised the most transparent administration in the modern era. Five years later, consider these facts about someone who was presumed to be one of the most intellectual men ever to hold the office. Shortly after taking office, Obama – a supposed expert in Constitutional law – judged a white Cambridge, MA police officer guilty in the treatment of a black college professor without knowing any of the facts in the case; something even ordinary citizens recognize violates one of our basic legal tenets: being innocent until proven guilty! In the years since, Obama has claimed to know nothing

of the Justice Department’s Fast & Furious operation, which supplied untraceable arms to Mexican drug lords, resulting in the murder of a U.S. border patrol agent. Obama then claimed ignorance to the IRS attempts to illegally block the issuance of

tax-exempt status to conservative groups. He then stated he knew nothing about the Justice Department’s investigation of reporters’ private emails nor did Obama claim he was aware of the forewarned dangers in Benghazi, Libya, resulting in the deaths of four American government officials. In today’s news, Obama is reported to have known years ago about the devastating effects that his “Affordable Health Care” would have on millions of Americans in the loss of their private health plans, despite his repeated promise that we could all keep our current coverage. For all those that voted for this community organizer, realize your errors of judgment. Obama will go down in histo-

ry as one of the most dishonest, corrupt and inept men to ever hold the office. My prayer is that this country will survive the next three years of the social experiment Obama pledged in 2008 that he hoped would “fundamentally” change the nature of the U.S. The changes we have seen thus far are destroying all that has made this country the richest and most powerful on Earth. Wes Jaros, Downers Grove

Pond project not what residents wanted To the Editor: It’s a sorry day for Downers Grove residents. We live in O’Brien Park and

they are draining our pond and making it into a swamp or wetland. It has been a source for our wildlife to live and nest. Birds, ducks, geese, herons, egrets etc. I am sad to see the pond draining into a mud pit. The mayor and village has decided to spend over $500,000 to create this when all we wanted was for it to be maintained. It has had one cent spent on it in 30 years although there was money allocated for it. It is a shame that the village does not listen to the people who live and pay taxes in this town.

Regarding the cups over 294: It’s in memory of Kelli O’Laughlin. It’s been two years. While it’s well-intended, if you want to memorialize somebody, you have a memorial service after they pass. Also have a funeral, and if they’re buried, they’re in a cemetery or the Ashes are dealt with if there is a cremation. A memorial is something that should be done within a year of the end of the person’s life, and then that’s that.

Neighbors first asked the village, which owns the pond, to dredge it to bring it back to its original depth. Dredging would have cost in upward of $900,000, according to figures provided by the village in 2012, and so staff recommended the naturalization project. It cost substantially less and should require no maintenance after a three-year monitoring period, officials said. The village board last year approved a $542,610 contract with ENCAP, Inc. to do

the work, with a 5 percent contingency. The project adds native plants to the 2.5-acre pond, located between Robey Avenue and Valley View Drive, turning it into what village staff has described as a wetland, but what some neighbors are afraid will be more like a swamp. Zarek and Stankaitis add that they and others paid a premium for their water-front homes and the village’s plan to turn the fetid pond into a marsh would ruin their investments. “The homeowners believe this is going to turn into a garbage dump, slash wildlife refugee, slash mosquito swamp,” Zarek said.

DOWNERS GROVE – Noah’s Hope, the charity organization founded by a Downers Grove family to find a cure for Batten disease, will host its annual benefit at 5 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Cotillion Banquets in Palatine. The event is hosted with Cures Within Reach. For tickets and more information, visit www.cureswithinreach.org/events/a-fifthseason. Jennifer and Tracy VanHoutan started Noah’s Hope after two of their children, Noah and Laine, were diagnosed with Batten disease. It is an extremely rare, degenerative genetic disease. Between the ages of 2 and 6, the children began to lose muscle coordination and experience seizures. The children are now fed with feeding tubes and use wheelchairs. At this time, Batten disease is terminal between the ages of 8 and 12. The fundraiser will provide a big benefit experience with a relaxed atmosphere, according to a press release. It will feature live music, special appearances, live and silent auctions, and appetizers, dessert and open bar.

Kitchens for the Average Joe & Jane 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

Experience 1950s-style dining at 100 South ELMHURST – Even if you can’t tell Hepburn and Tracy from Cagney and Lacey, you’ll almost certainly enjoy a night of dining out at 100 South Chop House and Grill. Thanks to its prominent spot at York Street and Park Avenue in downtown Elmhurst, just about anyone who’s been through town has seen the stylish exterior. The inside is more than a match, with a deliberate 1950s style decor and copious framed images of screen stars from the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. And like a beacon from that era, 100 South offers up a great number of variations on that quintessential American dish: meat and potatoes. To be sure, there are attractive seafood, pasta and chicken selections, all of which would’ve been tempting on any other occasion. But having perused the website ahead of time, and seeing a juicy cut of beef pictured prominently, my dining companion and I each knew what we wanted even before crossing the threshold. The tasty, warm bread with garlic butter, and the two (yes, two; we skipped lunch that day) appetizers of shrimp scampi and bruschetta, though enjoyably enticing, were simply overtures to the symphony that followed – an 8-ounce filet mignon, “Oscar style,” for my dining companion, and a 16-ounce New York strip steak for me. “Oscar style” means topped with crab meat and accompanied by Hollandaise sauce. I managed to weasel my way into a bite of this precious delicacy and was confronted by more flavors than my senses knew what to do with. I was tempted, at that point, to suggest a trade of entrees – not that such a suggestion would’ve been accepted. Moving on to my own dish, I dug in with gusto and found exactly what I wanted: a sizable portion of flavorful beef, cooked exactly to my specifications. Maybe I was iron-deficient that day, because this

DOWNERS GROVE RANKED 8TH BEST CITY IN ILLINOIS The Village of Downers Grove has been named the 8th Best City in Illinois by Movoto Real Estate. Movoto looked at the 50 largest Illinois communities and ranked them using the following six criteria: • Amenities (shopping, dining, entertainment, etc.) • Cost of living (percent above or below state average) • Crime (percent above or below state average) • Education (high school graduation rate compared to state average) • Employment (income and unemployment compared to state average) • Home value (percent above or below state average) Movoto Real Estate described the Village as follows: Talk about a misnomer - Downers Grove is anything but a downer, as recently ranked No. 8 in Forbes' list of America's Friendliest Towns. In fact, unless you're talking about their incredibly low crime rate compared to the rest of the state, Downers Grove ranks pretty high in most things. It is among the top in Illinois education, with a 12 percent higher high school graduation rate than the rest of the state and an annual household income of over $78,000 - 35 percent higher than average in these parts. It has also been named one of CNN's best places to retire, for its abundance of parks, nature, and, of course, stellar hospitals.

HANDMADE ORNAMENTS NEEDED Traditionally the children of Downers Grove have made ornaments to decorate the Main Street Tree for the holiday season. More information is available at events.downers.us or by calling Mary Pratt at 630-434-5559. Projects should be submitted by November 12, 2013.

MORE BEARS COVERAGE AT HUBARKUSH.COM

‘Peanut’ Tillman is key for Bears vs. Lions Hub Arkush

How much difference can six days make in the fortunes of an NFL team? Heading into Monday night, Bears fans were jumping off the bandwagon faster than rats deserting a sinking ship. Aaron Rodgers goes down, and the Bears pull off a shocking upset. Now, the Bears, Packers and Lions find themselves in a three-way dead heat atop the NFC North, all three at 5-3 and the Bears with a win over the Packers but a loss to the Lions, and the Packers with a win over Detroit. Now if the Bears can knock off the Lions – hey, they just soundly beat the Packers, didn’t they? – they will find themselves with a firm grip on the division with seven games to play and hopes of getting healthier as well as reinforcements in the form of Jay Ratliff.

The buzz is all around that Jay Cutler is coming back early, not from Dr. Brandon Marshall this time but from ESPN. Marc Trestman has said the doctors will decide, not the four-letter network or Cutler. Besides, after watching Josh McCown vs. the Packers, what’s the hurry? Charles “Peanut” Tillman is the key to the Bears beating the Detroit Lions. Certainly, the Bears will have to find a way to deal with Reggie Bush, who torched them in their Week Four meeting in Detroit. And whoever plays quarterback will have to be a lot better than Cutler was in the first half last time. But at the end of the day, nobody plays Calvin “Megatron” Johnson as effectively as Tillman, and he is going to have to do it again. Detroit will be coming off a bye, and Megaton’s most recent muscle memories will be of having put up the second-best receiving day in NFL history in their last-second, miraculous victory over the Cowboys.

As well as McCown played against the Packers – and I still believe it should be and will be him against Detroit – he’s not ready to get into a shootout with Johnson and Matt Stafford. Stafford is on pace to throw for more than 5,200 yards this season, with 2,617 in his first eight games, 16 touchdowns, six interceptions and a 94.6 passer rating. The Lions’ offensive line is doing a great job of protecting him, allowing only 10 sacks in the first half of the season. Bears fans can take solace in the fact the Bears sacked Rodgers and Seneca Wallace five times Monday night after managing only nine sacks in their first seven games. But let’s be honest – the five Packer sacks included only four quarterback hits. The sack of Rodgers was after Shea McClellin had been blocked out of the play and Rodgers ran back to him, and all but the Corey Wootton sack were coverage sacks. The Lions are third in total offense, sixth in average gain per

offensive play, first in percentage of quarterback sacks allowed, fifth in time of possession, and sixth in points per game. They will pose a much stiffer test for the Bears’ defense than the Wallace-led Packers did. The matchup between the Bears’ offense and the Lions’ defense should be kinder to the Bears. Matt Forte had his best game of the year in Green Bay, with 24 carries and 125 yards rushing, a 5.2 average, and one touchdown, and five catches for 54 yards. The Lions may not have an answer. Detroit’s defense is porous, ranking 25th overall, 30th in average gain per play allowed, 28th versus the run, 30th sacking the quarterback, and 18th in points allowed. The one category they are very good in is third- down efficiency, where they’re second, but that’s because they so rarely get to third down with all the big plays they give up. I know the shootout we expected in Green Bay didn’t happen. But if Stafford lasts four quarters, expect this to be a different story.

On to Week 10 … The Browns, Chiefs, Patri-

ots and Jets have a bye. Washington travels to Minnesota for the Thursday game.

MATCHUPS TO EXPLOIT Redskins at Vikings, 7:27 p.m. Thursday Washington and Minnesota rank No. 30 and No. 31 respectively in points allowed, besting only the hapless Jaguars. Most Thursday night games are fantasy stinkers, but these teams can’t stop anyone, so expect a wide-open affair. Obvious starts are Adrian Peterson, Pierre Garcon and Alfred Morris. This is also

a great match-up for Robert Griffin III and Jordan Reed. If you usually start Jordan Cameron or Rob Gronkowski at tight end, you will need a fill-in this week. Consider John Carlson of the Vikings. With Kyle Rudolph out at least a month, Carlson could be productive in the Vikes’ dink-and-dunk attack. If you have an emergency QB situation, this would be a week you might actually consider starting Christian Ponder. (Did I actually just write that?) Lions at Bears, noon Sunday This is another offensive no-brainer. One thing is perfectly clear: The Bears cannot defend the run. Reggie Bush is an obvious start, and Joique Bell deserves consideration. Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson are obvious starts, although the Bears have done pretty well defending Megatron over the years. Brandon Pettigrew is a solid option and

if you’re looking for help at wide receiver, Kris Durham has established himself as the No. 2 in Detroit. On the other side of the ball, it has been reported that Jay Cutler might return this week. Either Cutler or McCown is a decent option at quarterback. Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall are must-starts. Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett are solid options. Broncos at Chargers , 3:25 p.m. Sunday Although the Chargers allow a pretty respectable 21.8 points a game, only four other teams have allowed more offensive yards. All the usual suspects are must-starts for the Broncos. Philip Rivers should be able to eclipse 300 yards and throw for at least two touchdowns. Keenan Allen has emerged as Rivers’ top target and is a must start.

SD • Wednesday, November 6, 2013 • mysuburbanlife.com • Suburban Life

November opened with a wild and wacky fantasy weekend. The Eagles went from approaching offensive obscurity to having their backup quarterback tie an NFL record with seven passing touchdowns. (By the way, Nick Foles looks just like the guy I used to copy off of in algebra.) In other developments … Christian Ponder showed a pulse in Dallas and posted 19 fantasy points. Tom Brady returned to form with 432 yards and 35 points. Winless Tampa Bay threw three touchdown passes in the first half, intercepted Russell Wilson twice, and nearly upset the vaunted Seahawks. Miami’s Lamar Miller rushed for more than 100 yards for the first time in his career (and the first Dolphin to crest

100 this season). And he did it against a tough Bengals’ defense. In that same game, the Dolphins defense picked off the previously red-hot Andy Dalton three times and won the game in overtime with a safety. Chris Johnson channeled his inner 2009 with 150 yards rushing and 29 fantasy points. Zac Stacy took another step toward establishing himself as a must-start as he also posted 29 points. Like CJ2K and Brady, Andre Johnson returned from the dead with 229 receiving yards and three touchdowns. The rarely injured Aaron Rodgers went out after one series, and the Bears were able to upset the Packers. The injury to Rodgers derailed the fantasy numbers of Packer wideouts, especially Jordy Nelson.

Downers Grove North head coach John Wander, middle, walks along the sideline during the Trojans’ 28-0 victory over Whitney Young on Friday.

Calvino guides North to first-round win By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com CHICAGO – Sebastian Calvino’s list of football firsts keeps growing longer. The Downers Grove North tight end turned quarterback started his first varsity Sebastian game in place Calvino of injured se- Quarterback nior David Edwards on Oct. 4, leading the Trojans to a victory over Downers Grove South and recording the first multi-rushing touchdown performance of his career. Since his three-score game against South, Calvino has won three out of four games as starting quarterback and helped clinch a postseason birth. In North’s first round

Downers Grove N. 28 Whitney Young 0 Downers Grove North at Wheaton Warrenville South When: 7 p.m. Friday Where: Wheaton Warrenville South, 1993 Tiger Trail, Wheaton Records: No. 8 DGN 6-4; No. 5 WW South 8-2 Outlook: Downers Grove North passed its first postseason test on Friday, shutting out Whitney Young 28-0 in Chicago. But the path to the state championship remains an uphill climb for the Trojans, who must now face a Wheaton Warrenville South team that is a threat to score on both offense and defense. Downers Grove North hopes that seniors David Edwards and Vontae Diggs can return from injuries and provide an offensive spark.

playoff game versus Whitney Young, Calvino again carried the load, rushing for 128 yards and two touchdowns and guiding the Trojans to a 28-0 victory. “It was a really great feeling to help the team get a win and move on to the second round,” Calvino said. “Our line and the other backs

opened some big holes and I just lowered my shoulders and kept my feet moving.” Calvino opened the scoring late in the first quarter, dragging a pile of Dolphin defenders 15 yards into the end zone to give the Trojans a 7-0 lead. Following a North fumble recovery less than two minutes later, he added a

3-yard rushing score. Downers Grove North head coach John Wander continues to heap praise on Calvino. “He’s a tough young man and we like to call him our mini Tim Tebow,” Wander said. “We would rather spread out the offense a little more, but that isn’t Sebastian’s style. He runs hard, eats up yards, breaks tackles and holds onto the football.” With Calvino working out of the option, the Trojans’ offense leaned solely on the run game to finish off the Dolphins on Friday. Junior tail back Charles Creamer gashed the Whitney Young defense for a 76-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and running back Kyle Leto capped the scoring with a 57-yard sprint in the third quarter. Downers Grove North will remain on the road and play

Wheaton Warrenville South in the second round of the 7A playoffs on Friday In its first round matchup, Wheaton Warrenville South dismantled Dunbar, jumping out to a 42-0 second quarter advantage in the second quarter then cruising to a 4816 win. The Tigers scored on every possession in the first half while the defense forced three turnovers. Dual threat quarterback Ryan Graham leads an offense whose biggest threat – running back Isaiah Campos – is fully recovered from an injury. Meanwhile, the Trojans remain hampered by injuries. Quarterback David Edwards hasn’t played since suffering a bone bruise against Lyons Township while twoway starter Vontae Diggs injured his ankle in the first quarter on Friday and did not return.

His 29-yard run was the Mustangs’ longest play of the game. had a hard time blocking,” South head coach Mark Molinari said. “We could not run the ball. I thought defensively we played pretty well for about three quarters and we made it close, but ... they hit a couple big plays on us. I was proud of our effort defensively and I

think we can play with teams like that, but when you’re going out there every three downs it makes it tough.” With the loss, South capped its season with a 6-4 record. The ending was disappointing, but overall the season saw the Mustangs take a step forward

after a couple of down years. They were West Suburban Gold conference champions for the first time since 2010. “It’s nice that we got Downers Grove South back on track and in coach [Molinari’s] first year we got him that trifecta last week: Conference champions, the Rebel Canon and playoffs,” Arvanitakis said. “It’s nice in coach [Molinari’s] first year to go 6-0 and win conference. I have a feeling he’s putting the program in a good direction for the future.” Molinari said South’s sophomore and freshman A teams both went 8-1 this season. The success on the field coincided with senior leadership that set the tone for the rest of the program. “They turned this program around,” junior quarterback Jordan Skach said. “From last year, they really turned this program around and did a great job of setting an example and making sure guys followed in the footsteps of what they did previous years.”

By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com WESTMONT – Westmont resident Tanner Plowman was recently named a youth All-American football player for a second straight year. The 13-year-old Plowman is a defensive end on the Downers Grove Panthers Senior Gold team – the highest rank within the youth football organization. Through nine games, he has over 30 tackles and three sacks during his team’s run to the Bill George Youth Football League Super Bowl. A standout lineman since he first began playing five years ago, the Westmont Junior High student – who also plays basketball – adheres to an offseason workout regimen and diet, and participates in the annual Offense-Defense Football Camp at North Central college. “The camp hosts some of the best youth players in the

Tanner Plowman of Westmont has been selected as a youth All-American football player for the second straight year and will travel to Florida in December for the All-American festivities. area,” Plowman said. “It’s a great place to see how you measure up to really good competition and also improve as a player.” Moreover, the highly touted full-contact football camp

is also a site to be evaluated by collegiate scouts. Youth participants are put through a gauntlet of drills, testing skills, strength and endurance. The best players are then

selected to participate in the All-American Bowl, a camp which is held at a different pro or collegiate stadium every year. The eighth annual All-American Bowl will be held from Dec. 30 to Jan. 5 at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla. For the second consecutive year, Plowman was named an Offense-Defense All-American and will road trip to Florida with his father, Robert Plowman, on Dec. 26. Last year, the Plowman family traveled to Texas and watched Tanner play at Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans. “Seeing him play on a professional field is kind of a surreal experience,” Robert Plowman said. “To be able to see him run with an elite group of players is very exciting. We are so honored and proud of him.” While Plowman understands what a tremendous honor the two-time nomination is, he tries to remain

humble, explaining that designation a stepping stone to what might be a long football career. “It’s just a really fun experience and a good environment to meet players who are just as passionate about football as I am,” Plowman said. “It’s a place where I can grow as a person, an athlete and work on my leadership skills.” Over the weekend, Plowman led his Downers Grove Panthers squad to a hardfought victory over the Carol Stream Panthers. Now, Downers Grove will face the Wheaton Rams for the BGYFL title on Saturday. Plowman knows that high school is on the near horizon, but isn’t tipping his cap where he will take his talents. “I am not yet sure where I am going to high school,” Plowman said. “I am just concerned with the next game and being the best defensive end I can be.”

NAPERVILLE – Alec Arvanitakis and Downers Grove South’s football team had a solid game plan entering Friday’s playoff game. Unfortunately for the Mustangs, it didn’t take host Naperville Central long to affect the game plan. The Redhawks’ stingy defense and several miscues cost the Mustangs in a 36-0 loss in a Class 8A first round game. “We had a game plan coming in,” Arvanitakis said. “We were going to run some power and some lead, but we were just not able to execute and we shot ourselves in the foot right from the start of the game until the end.” South netted five yards on the game’s first drive, then saw its punt blocked. Central’s drive culminated in a 27-yard field goal. The Mustangs’ next five drives netted 24 yards and resulted in four punts and the end of the first half as they

Suburban Life ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

Duo eyes strong state showing By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com

CHARLES CREAMER Downers Grove North | Senior| Football Why Creamer was selected: Creamer’s big play ability was on display in the first round of the 7A playoffs against Whitney Young on Friday. The junior running back totaled six carries for over 100 yards and a touchdown as North won 28-0. With a handful of injuries taking their toll on the Downers Grove North backfield, junior speedster Charles Creamer has proven to be a valuable asset to the team’s running attack. On Friday, the running back showed why he is a threat to score every time he touches the ball by breaking off a 76-yard touchdown run in the first half and setting up another score with a dazzling 28-yard carry. Creamer, the Sears Appliance & Hardware Athlete of the Week, spoke with Suburban Life sports reporter Alex Soulier about playoff football, how running track helps him in football, and his long touchdown run.

What is the difference between playoff and regular season football? Emotions play a larger part; sometimes, you need to learn to keep your emotions in check so you don’t make mental mistakes. It’s also a little more physical and the speed of the game is a

little faster. It’s win or go home from here.

You also sprint and run hurdles for the track and field team; how does that help your football skill set? Speed goes a long way. But what I do on the track also improves my footwork, my running form and my overall conditioning.

What did you see on that 76-yard touchdown run? The line opened a huge hole; my eyes lit up when I saw all that open field. From there, it was just using the my abilities that God gave me to run as fast as I could. There were a couple of defenders chasing me, so it was a dead sprint the whole way.

What do you need to do yo be successful against Wheaton Warrenville South? We need to watch film, figure out their defensive tendencies, have a good week of practice and come ready to play.

This Athlete of the Week is brought to you by

HINSDALE – Zach Smith’s and Ryan Clevenger’s training, dedication and leadership have paid dividends for Downers Grove North’s boys cross country team. Smith, a senior, and Clevenger, a junior, again powered the Trojans during a sectional meet on Saturday at Hinsdale, going stride-forstride with each other and placing first and second, respectively. A week after the duo also took the top two spots at the regional, they separated themselves from the pack around the 2-mile mark and

Smith’s 14:36 bested the field while Clevenger finished one second later. “Placing first and second at regionals and sectionals was really great feeling,” Clevenger said. “We know we are the leaders of the team and when we can take the top spots, it always gives our team a chance to win. That’s the goal.” Downers Grove North finished second overall and secured a trip to Saturday’s state meet at Detweiller Park in Peoria. Following Smith and Clevenger were Mark Mathy (21st), Jeremy Craven (25th), Jared Spilky (29th), Zac Christensen (48th) and Jack Diamond (78th).

But Smith and Clevenger are are still running towards their ultimate goal: A topthree team finish and top-10 individual finishes at state. “Zach and I are really good friends and we train together in the summer and during the season,” Clevenger said. “We ran about 600 miles this summer, so we know the other’s running style as well as each other’s traits, techniques and emotions. “During races, I just give Zach a look and know when to break away from the field. We push each other very hard during races and in the classroom; I think our hard work has paid off this year.”

Hinsdale Central’s Christian Meyer, left, looks for space in a an Oct. 15 game against York. With Meyer leading the offense, the Red Devils put together a solid season that included conference and regional titles.

Improvement marks Meyer’s final season By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – This offseason, Hinsdale Central forward Christian Meyer concentrated on helping the Red Devils improve their offensive tempo and time of possession. Consider it mission accomplished. After an undefeated regular season, a West Suburban Silver Conference title, and run to the 3A sectionals, it was difficult to find flaws in the play on either offense of defense.

But Meyer – a three-year mainstay on the Red Devils roster – emphasized that, in order to remain focused, the players must critique their play and strive towards improvement. “There is always room for individual and team improvement,” Meyer said. “I thought it was imperative that we improve our attack. The offense and [midfielders] focused on cycling the ball better – playing a pro-style possession game with quick passes.” Under Meyer’s guidance, Hinsdale Central’s offense

frequently throttled the opposition, scoring four or more goals 10 times this season en route to another conference title and sectional appearance. Additionally, the team won the Red Devil Invite and captured the Silver Brick trophy with a Sept. 27 victory over Lyons Township, two preseason goals the team had set for itself. Meyer’s production was a big part of Central’s success. He followed up a 10 goal, 12 assist junior season with 17 goals and 12 helpers, leading the Red Devils in scoring. “This year was a little dif-

ferent because I was not playing with one of my brothers,” Meyer said, referring to his twin brother, Mitchell, who left to play Chicago Fire Academy. “I felt like it was my team and I wanted to prove myself on and off the field,” Meyer said. “Wearing the Hinsdale Central jersey holds special meaning to me. I watched the games when I was young and saw the talent that went through the program. There is nothing better than proudly representing your school and community.”

Hinsdale Central cruised through regionals, but eventually dropped a tight sectional match to rival Lyons Township. While he is still contemplating where he will play collegiate soccer, Meyer hints that he might reunite with his brother, Mitchell, if the twins can get into Cornell University. “I have loved my time here, but I am excited for what lies ahead,” Meyer said. “I would love to play with my brother again. We will just have to see if we get in.”

All-area boys’ soccer team Meet the 2013 Suburban Life all-area boys soccer team

Mitch Boyce

Kyle Kenagy

Nick King

Paddy Lawler

School: Lisle Year: Senior Impact: Boyce anchored a Lisle defense that pitched three consecutive shutouts down the stretch, helping the team advance to the 2A regional final. The senior defender consistently showed a prowess to shut down opposing forwards and an ability to take the ball away and advance it up field.

School: Benet Year: Junior Impact: Kenagy recorded a hat trick in the first game of the season and kept a torrid scoring pace all season, registering at least a goal or an assist in every game except for two. He led the team in scoring and guided the Redwings to a share of the East Suburban Catholic Conference title and a regional title.

School: Downers Grove South Year: Senior Impact: Goalie Nick King was a wall in net for Downers Grove South. Backstopping an offense that struggled at times, he was often counted on to keep matches close. King allowed 19 goals in 22 games and recorded five shutouts – including a playoff shutout against Downers Grove North.

School: Benet Year: Senior Impact: A year after scoring the most goals on the team, Lawler took on a more defensive role with the Redwings. The East Suburban Catholic all-conference midfielder ensured that his presence was felt on the defensive side, consistently improving his tackling and take-away ability and helping the team record four shutouts.

Bryan Loebig

Hugo Lopez

Luis Loya

Christian Meyer

School: Bolingbrook Year: Senior Impact: Loya ascended as Bolingbrook’s top midfielder during the 2013 season. A powerful ball striker endowed with the ability to shut down opposing offenses, Loya was named to the 2013 Southwest Suburban all-conference team and all-sectional team, and was crowned the 2013 team MVP.

School: Hinsdale Central Year: Senior Impact: The most talented ball handler and finisher in the area, Meyer scored 17 goals and had 12 assists this season, leading his team to an undefeated regular season. He is considering pursuing soccer at Cornell University next year. Meyer played three years of varsity and was an all-state selection this season.

School: Hinsdale Central Year: Sophomore Impact: Loebig proved that talent outweighs inexperience. He earned his spot in the Hinsdale Central midfield with speed, tenacity and steadfast ball control. Like the other Red Devil midfielders, Loebig quickly became a constant fixture in the box score.

School: Bolingbrook Year: Senior Impact: Lopez capped a successful varsity career as Bolingbrook’s top scorer with 10 goals and eight assists. He was a twotime Southwest Suburban all-conference selection, back-to-back all-sectional forward and the “engine that powers the team,” according to head coach Jamie Clemmons.

HONORABLE MENTION Benet – Sam Knapke Bolingbrook – Frimpong Sintim Downers Grove North – Jake Mauer Downers Grove South – Mike Flores Hinsdale Central – Max Krohn

Jack Niestrom School: Hinsdale Central Year: Junior Impact: This midfielder’s strong ball-handling skills steadied an offense that thrived and excelled in winning the possession battle. But Niestrom was also a main fixture on the stat sheet, scoring and assisting on many timely goals. He was named to the all-sectional team this season.

Michael Rindler

Teodor Trifunovski

Hinsdale South – Dean Serritella

School: Benet Year: Senior Impact: Rindler anchored the midfield this season, provided ample help on defense and notched double-digit goals. As a result of the spiked offensive output, Rindler was named East Suburban Catholic all-conference and was an all-sectional selection on a team that won a regional title.

School: Lemont Year: Junior Impact: This forward was the catalyst of the Indians’ offense. An IHSSCA all-sectional selection as well as a member of the South Suburban all-conference team, Trifunovski topped Lemont with 24 goals. The junior was also an adept passer, dishing out nine assists.

Lemont – Andrew Chialdikas, Roy Delatore Lisle – Jimmy Gill Westmont – Scott Larem, Michael Robertson, Jordan Slagle
