It provides three to five $500 scholarships to high school students who are either residents of Lisle or a “630” area code, and a $500 scholarship to a woman who is returning to college to complete a degree or pursue a degree. Proceeds from the club’s annual community garden walk fundraiser, during which residents can walk through various gardens in the community, are used for the scholarship funds, Roake said. This year the fundraiser, the Garden Gait, is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 23. Club members and various businesses through-

out the community will sell tickets for the event, Roake said. Roake said she is satisfied with the club’s success and looks forward to new ideas and events. “I’m very, very proud of the fact that we have maintained a high standard and good, strong membership through the years and have done some nice things,” Roake said. The Lisle Woman’s Club meets at 6:30 p.m. the first Wednesday each month at the Lisle Library, 777 Front St., Lisle.

For the past 50 years, Barbara Roake has dedicated countless hours to a local club that may have never formed without her help. Roake is one of the founding members and the first president of the Lisle Woman’s Club, a service organization that works to improve the world both locally and globally. Members help raise money for local charities and scholarships, and also attend monthly meetings to discuss how to help the community, listen to guest speakers and socialize. “It’s a good experience,” said Roake, of Lisle. “As you get older you get tired of doing the same old things, so joining the woman’s club gets you to new outlets.” A member of the General Federation of Women’s ClubsIllinois and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, the Lisle club consists of about 40 women ages 35 to 85, Roake said.

Omega Restaurant will reopen Monday, owners say By BRIAN HUDSON bhudson@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE — The return of Omega Restaurant is in sight. Owners have announced Monday as the date the long-standing restaurant at 1300 Ogden Ave. will reopen its doors, more than seven months after shuttering under a slew of unpaid bills, code violations, and infighting between the owner and managers. Co-owner Nick Christopoulos confirmed Friday that the restaurant’s marquee sign — “OPENING MARCH 4 HIRING ALL POSITIONS” — is accurate. The owners also are planning on cutting back from 24hour service. Christopoulos said the new Omega Restaurant will be open from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. weekdays and until 3 a.m. weekends. The restaurant is reopening with the same owners but new managers after closing suddenly last summer. Long-running problems at

Ryan Terrell — rterrell@shawmedia.com

The new sign for Omega Restaurant says the Downers Grove business will reopen Monday. the restaurant became public in May, when Commonwealth Edison shut off the building’s

electricity over what it said was a nearly $50,000 unpaid bill. Power was restored, but

the utility company shut it off again the next month over another unpaid bill.

By July, the restaurant also had racked up another roughly $20,000 in unpaid water bills to the village and the Downers Grove Sanitary District. All along, the restaurant’s operator, Jim Stavropoulos, was at odds with the owner, George Andrews. The DuPage County Circuit Court records show years of fighting over both rent and the running of the restaurant. In May, Andrews claimed in court that Stavropolous hadn’t paid rent since February. By July, Andrews was claiming in court that he was owed $364,000. That month, Stavropoulos agreed to vacate the restaurant. Since then, the owners have been doing work on the restaurant to bring it up to code. Christopoulos, who now is co-owner with Andrews, has said he hopes the restaurant can move forward from last year’s debacle.

Resident’s close encounter with coyote comes at height of active season By BRIAN HUDSON bhudson@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE — Over coffee one weekend morning this month, Marty Wynne and his wife looked out into their backyard in Downers Grove and, to their surprise, saw a set of eyes peering back. Actually, two sets of eyes. Just before 9:30 a.m. Feb. 16, Wynne recalled, a pair of coyotes had wandered into his backyard and were lingering between the tree line and their back door. He has seen coyotes in his backyard before in the 4600 block of Downers Drive, but it had been so long — and the coyotes were loitering so close — he grabbed a camera and snapped a series of wildlife shots from his kitchen. “I probably haven’t seen one in about five or six months,” he said. This month and next, coyotes will be more conspicuous as they go through their mating season, said Jack MacRae, a naturalist with the DuPage County Forest Preserve. Mating season actually peaks right around Valentine’s Day, he said. “It coincides with establishing the territories,” he said. “So they are more

conspicuous. As far as the behavior, they’re sniffing around, looking for accepting females.” Coyotes will make their presence known even if they remain unseen. Howling increases during mating season as well, and the barks and yips can carry over two to three miles. “The number of calls (about coyotes) we get in here — it’s throughout the year, but there’s always an increase in January, February,” he said. Heading into summer, however, coyote sightings and howls should decrease as the new litters are born, MacRae said. “The lowest number of calls we get are June, July, when the young are at the den and mom and dad don’t want to be conspicuous,” he said. Even when they are staking out ter-

Earlier this month, Marty Wynne saw two coyotes wander into his Downers Grove backyard. From his backdoor, he snapped this photo. Experts say as coyotes hit the peak of their mating season, sightings could become more common in the western suburbs. ritory, coyotes generally do not present a danger for humans as long as common sense care is taken, MacRae said. “They’re wild animals,” he said. “You don’t want to approach it. You don’t want to corner it. But is it a dangerous situation? Not at all.”

There have been, however, a number of cases of small pets being attacked by coyotes. In November, an 11-pound Havanese dog was reportedly killed by a coyote in a Downers Grove backyard not far from Maple Avenue and 55th Street. Attacks on canines are not necessarily coyotes searching for food, MacRae said. Roughly 90 percent of coyote’s diets is smaller mammals like squirrels, mice and rabbits, but often, it is a matter of territory. Small dogs especially should never be left unattended in a backyard that sits near any kind of open territory, such as a forest preserve or golf course, he said. “There’s that ongoing battle — which is my space, which is your space,” he said. “There’s this uneasy testing back and forth all the time.” That about sums up what the coyotes were doing in Wynne’s backyard. They poked around, kept their distance and left after chasing a squirrel up a tree, he said. Wynne has a dog, but he said he’s not too worried about coyotes running off with his 75-pound golden retriever. “I think they have easier fish to fry,” he said.


8IT’S HISTORY: A GLIMPSE INTO DOWNERS GROVE’S PAST

8NEWS BRIEFS District 99 candidates make their case in forum

DOWNERS GROVE — This weekend, the Downers Grove Jaycees will be recognized for the group’s donation of a warming shelter more than 40 years ago. In 1968, the Jaycees built and donated the shelter at Patriots Park. The shelter stood for 43 years before it was taken down two years ago after falling into disrepair. A few months later, the Downers Grove Park District constructed a council ring for groups to use while meeting at the park in the footprint where the shelter was located. The Downers Grove Park District installed a plaque last year commemorating the warming shelter, and this weekend officials will dedicate it in the ceremony at noon Saturday in the park, 55th Street and Fairview Avenue. All former Jaycees and members of the community are invited to attend.

DOWNERS GROVE — Downers Grove’s League of Women Voters hosted a forum Tuesday night for Community High School District 99 school board candidates. The Tuesday night event was the first of a pair of forums before the April 9 election. The race features incumbents Debbie Boyle, Julia Beckman and Terry Pavesich and newcomers Martin Gorski, Henry Jakobsze and Rick Pavinato competing for four seats. The fourth incumbent up for election, board President Bill White, is not running. For coverage of Tuesday’s forum, visit www.mysuburbanlife. com/downersgrove. A second forum featuring candidates for village council is scheduled for 7 p.m. March 26 at village hall.

Constructed in 1967 by the Downers Grove Jaycees, the warming shelter at Patriots Park stood for several decades until costly repairs needed to retain the shelter caused it to be removed several years ago. The shelter was designed by local architect and Jaycee member John Wilson, and was used by ice skaters at Patriots Park as a warming shelter. The Jaycees spent countless hours constructing the shelter and paid for all costs required. Upon completion, members donated it to the Downers Grove Park District.

Downers Grove charity effort lets there be light By BRIAN HUDSON bhudson@shawmedia.com

Online

DOWNERS GROVE — It was a couple years after their trip to the Philippines that John and Nancy Economou came up with their bright idea. After visiting missionaries working in one of that country’s poorest regions — which lacked electricity and running water and where night-time light was provided by dim kerosene lamps — the Downers Grove couple set out to deliver light to those who needed it. Out of that kernel grew Watts of Love, a charity founded last year with the mission to deliver solar-powered lights to those around the world without electricity. The Economou’s efforts paid off this month with a trip back to the Philippines, when they delivered 1,000 of the solar-powered lights to the Filipino island. “The response was enormous. After everything you always hear about the poor, but to go and see it,” Nancy Economou said. “I just thought about our five young boys.” Wherever the lights are delivered, Watts of Love will work with a local nongovernmental organization — both to ensure the lights go to the right people and to follow up afterward, John Economou said. In the case of the Philippines, the missionaries plan to report how the lights affect students’ grades in the area. “We can gauge the impact these things have,” he said. Watts of Love is already planning another trip — Mozambique sometime in between July and December. They’d like to at least match and possibly double their 1,000-light contribution. In that time, they’d also like to make it a self-sustaining nonprofit. (They’ve filed an application for a 501-(c)(3) status.)

For more on the charity, go to wattsoflove. org.

John Economou prints off wedding pictures for a bride on her wedding day. During Watts of Love’s trip to the Philippines, John, his wife, Nancy, and brother-in-law Kevin Kuster, shot pictures of couples getting married. For many of them, it was their first time being photographed.

The idea is to wed the nonprofit with the services provided by John Economou’s business, Aureole LED, which installs LED and energy-efficient lighting for new construction and renovations. Retrofitting corporate buildings with LED lights provides energy savings, John Economou said. The Economous hope to entice some businesses to donate a portion of those savings to

the charity. The lights are relatively inexpensive. The lights on the first trip this month were financed by several private donors. They retail for about $43, but the cost was $20 for the charity. By sharing office space with Aureole LED in Lombard, just north of Butterfield Road, they can keep their overhead and administrative costs low.

“Everyone gets something,” Nancy Economou said. “They get their retrofit, they get their savings.” The solar-power light has four settings. The lowest, which was still brighter than a kerosene lamp, can run for 100 hours without a sunlight charge. The other, brighter settings can run for 24, 12 and eight hours. The brightest setting delivers the equivalent to a 4- watt bulb. The light also includes an adapter for a cell phone charger, which can be as crucial. In many parts of the developing world — where 21st century digitization is taking off without as much 20th century infrastructure — cell phones do more than just handle calls. According to a World Bank report published in July, they are also used by individuals for financial transactions and business developments and by governments to deliver services. In the Philippines, the business aspect was a big part of the solar lights’ impact, she said. Nancy Economou recalled one mother who found nothing to do after the sun went down but to wait for bedtime. With the solar light, however, she could put a couple hours into her cottage industry — widdling down bamboo sticks, which she could then sell at the market. After returning the next day, Nancy Economou recalled, she widdled dozens of the skewers. “They doubled their family income in 12 hours,” she said. “It’s exciting, we really saw the direct impact. Sitting here in Downers Grove, we can only think about all the implications, how it can be used.”

More information on the stormwater credit program is on the village’s website at www.downers. us/res/stormwater-management/ stormwater-utility. To reschedule, Neustadt recommended the church leaders meet one-on-one with the village to discuss the ways — already within the village code — to cut down on the stormwater fee. The stormwater fee is calculated based on the amount of impervious area, such as a roof or driveway, on a given parcel. Property owners can reduce their monthly fee through credits and incentives. Installing a rain barrel, for instance, reduces stormwater runoff and yields a $25 one-time credit. The option to sit down with the village is available to any property owner, Village Manager David Fieldman said. “Any property owner —

resident, nonprofit group, business, anybody at all — is welcome and encouraged to set up a meeting with our stormwater administrator,” he said in a phone interview last week. “At those meetings, we’ll sit down and talk about the stormwater utility and all the options available.” The email exchange between the pastors and Neustadt was courteous, but the Rev. Scott Oberle, pastor at First Congregational Church, said he was disappointed that there wouldn’t be a chance for a group dialogue. “We were more discour-

“Any property owner — resident, nonprofit group, business, anybody at all — is welcome and encouraged to set up a meeting with our stormwater administrator.” David Fieldman Village Manager aged that the direction seemed to encourage us to

meet individually as faith communities rather than have a dialogue together with the city as we feel that we all share some common concerns and mutual questions,” Oberle wrote in the exchange. Neustadt wrote that he is not currently in favor of changing the village’s policy in regards to nonprofits. Whatever the outcome, Oberle replied, he hopes the conversation will continue. “I do wish to be clear, that we also do hope over time council will reconsider this fee as levied on non-for-profits, houses of worship and schools,” Oberle wrote.

DOWNERS GROVE — As property owners across Downers Grove start to pay into the new municipal stormwater utility, village leaders are not pursuing a change in policy that would relieve churches and other nonprofits from paying hundreds each month. Instead, officials are encouraging the nonprofits — as well as any interested property owner — to work with the village on a caseby-case basis to reduce their monthly stormwater fee. Still, some church leaders say they want to continue pushing the issue. This year, the village introduced a monthly fee that would fund stormwater sewer projects. The new fee coincides with a decrease in the village’s property tax burden — which was used in past years to pay for the stormwater projects. But for nonprofits that own property and are exempt from property taxes, the fee is an entirely new burden. Churches and nonprofits in the village are paying, on average, close to $2,000 a year into the fund, with some paying two or three times that. One church and school, Marquette Manor Baptist Church, owes more than $8,000 a year, according to village records. The additional burden is significant for many of the nonprofits that already operate on tight budgets, nonprofits leaders said Last month, a group of church leaders approached the Downers Grove Village Council and asked if any exception could be made. While they were willing to pay their fair share, the pastors said the fee could interfere with the public services their churches provide. After the council meeting, Commissioner Geoff Neustadt proposed a sitdown with all the pastors and village officials about t he st or m wa t er f e e. Bu t the day before the meeting, Neustadt, citing a family appointment, backed out of the meeting, according to an email exchange.

TMJ SYNDROME

**For more information on Conductive Education and Summer Camp visit our website at www.Center-for-independence.org or call (708) 588-0833.

Q: What is TMJ syndrome? A: TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint. The joint is the hinge where the lower jaw, called the mandible, connects to the upper jaw. Inflammation of the joint, whether it be a chronic or acute condition, can cause severe pain and impair the joint’s operation. This condition is called TMJ syndrome and is one of the most common sources of facial pain. In some cases, the condition can make the jaw lock in either an open or closed position. The condition can also cause stiffness or pain in the shoulders and neck, dizziness and severe headaches. The pain is also noticeable in front of the ears, which is where the joint is. Treatment can include medication and stress-reduction exercises. Like any joint, the TMJ is also susceptible to regular problems like stiffness, arthritis and dislocation. And facial pain can come from other sources, like gum disease, a toothache or a sinus infection. So, if you experience any pain or unusual sensation in your face or mouth, you should visit your dentist as soon as possible for a professional diagnosis. The dentist may need to take an x-ray to get a clear look at the TMJ. Talk with your dentist about TMJ.

To the Editor: Stimulating a child’s creative thinking and tapping into a young person’s imagination are as vital to the lifelong learning process as are math and reading. And now, Google is making it a little bit easier — and a whole lot more fun — for us parents to encourage our kids to tap into their creativity and think outside of the box. Doodle 4 Google is a nationwide contest that will end with one lucky and talented winner having their “doodle” featured on the Google homepage and receiving a $30,000 college scholarship for themselves, plus a $50,000 technology grant for his or her school. It sounds great, but what’s a doodle? It’s the fun, interactive, educational and sometimes surprising versions of the Google logo that appear on the Google homepage to celebrate special events, days in history, and influential people. For this year’s contest, K-12 students are asked to create a doodle around the theme “My Best Day Ever …” Doodle submissions are due by March 22 and can be submitted online or by mail.

For the Downers Grove District 58 Education Foundation, children are the center of everything.

Over the past decade, the foundation has donated more than $400,000 in financial support to help District 58 offer expanded learning opportunities, primarily in the form of annual classroom and building grants. This year alone, the foundation funded more than $35,000 in grants for District 58 schools. Education-enhancing projects and purchases made possible through the grants program over the years have included interactive technologies such as iPads, Apple TVs and interactive whiteboards; hundreds of books; a virtual frog dissection program; a career exploration program; “road trip” backpacks filled with audiobooks for families; and Rachel’s Challenge, a program fostering a culture of compassion and kindness at District 58’s two middle schools.

Q: Can hearing problems cause depression? A: It is known that uncorrected hearing loss can be a major contributor to depression. The greatest impact that hearing loss has is on the psychological make-up Dr. Terri Lightbody of a person. (630) 580-5777 Symptoms such as anxiety, paranoia, insecurity, low self-esteem and social withdrawl are typical signs of depression. Mental health experts are just now investigating the patient’s hearing capabilities to rule out hearing loss as a contributing factor to their depression. The loss of hearing typically comes on gradually, over a period of years. The change in hearing usually isn’t noticeable, it often goes undetected. Many will contribute difficulties in their hearing due to background noises being present or say that others “mumble”. When hearing loss occurs, the person will miss out what is being said and often miss the punch line to a joke. A head

nod or silent laugh is used to cover up the fact that they didn’t understand what was said. When a person experiences this enough times, this uncomfortable situation causes them to gradually choose to avoid these situations and isolate themselves. The kinds of problems that can occur through loss of one’s hearing are: • Communicative misunderstandings • Inappropriate social responses • Embarrassment • Limited career opportunity • ฀riction with spouse and/or children • Seen as having memory problems The last problem listed above scares my patients the most. But the reality is that when others don’t communicate effectively, we tend to contribute their condition to a deterioration of their brain. Uncorrected hearing loss is a major contributor to depression, cognitive & social dysfunction. There are solutions to correct hearing loss, seek an Audiologist to learn about these solutions.

About the author: Dr. Terri Lightbody is a nationally known Audiologist and has her private practice at Town Square Wheaton. She works ฀n the commun฀ty as well as w฀th the L฀ons Club of Wheaton, a non-proit organ฀zat฀on ded฀cated to help฀ng those w฀th hear฀ng loss and low v฀s฀on. She ฀s a nom฀nee for the Gamon Award wh฀ch recogn฀zes outstanding contribution of service to those in need. She is the forerunner in today’s most advanced hearing devices.

Some Dog Owners Didn’t Believe It... BUT It’s True. Too good to be true, or is it? Hi. My name is John O’Driscoll and I couldn’t believe it when a new dog owner customer of mine told me what her girlfriends were doing. Before I get into that, let me ask you a question. Have you seen our free 1st grooming? Well, if you’re like a recent customer of ours, you might be thinking that it’s not for real or there’s a catch or there might be some sneaky upsell when you come in. (It’s Real.) But, first, let me say: I get it... I get it... in life there always

seems to be a catch. And I know when it seems like something is too good to be true, it usually is... except this time I want you to know this is a genuine offer from a genuine grooming shop. So why am I doing this? Frankly, we want your business. I think we give such great service that I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is and pay my groomer to groom your dog. At the risk of sounding too confident, I think we have one of the best groomers in DuPage County. All you have to do is call us today. Call 630-969-3145. Just ask us for the free grooming offer you saw in the paper and we’ll take care of the rest. Obviously, I can’t do an unlimited number of these.

There is only a couple of spots available per day, so if you have a need for a really great grooming, so you can have the best looking dog in the neighborhood, call us today. 630-969-3145. So, back to my customers girlfriend... after she got her free grooming with us, she told her girlfriends that we were the real deal... so a bunch of her girlfriends went looking through their recyclables looking for the paper with our ad. So, instead of getting caught in this situation, why not just give us a call and get your appointment today. Again you can call us at

630-969-3145 or find us online at www.bellairegrooming.com

Technology Drives 2013 Trends in Education in the Growing Online Sector Dean of Aurora University Online, Professor Carmella Moran, Forecasts Top Trends urora University recently launched online programs featuring in-demand degrees for today’s top growth industries. he esteemed university joins the list of educational institutions facilities that are expanding their reach by creating courses that are accessible online. he lexible professional and degree programs include some of the school’s well-regarded programs including nursing, education and business administration. Technological advances have helped spur the rise in online education. Students can take advantage of top-ranking degree programs while juggling fulltime jobs and balancing family commitments. Technological advances have also made online education an engaging experience; chat rooms, “virtual oice hours�, forums and study groups all help to empower students to engage with their peers and professors. Consequently, online education is expected to expand in 2013.

A

Carmella Moran, Dean of Aurora University Online, shares her top trends in online education: 5Gamification: Students are growing up in an increasingly interconnected world. According to the NPD Group more than 211 million Americans play video games. Institutions are starting to include gaming into college completion, test prep and everything in-between. Introducing this new way of learning helps students to engage in the learning process and better retain knowledge for tests and overall retention. R5 Social Media:  Almost 98% of 18-24 year olds use a social media network. At many universities including Aurora University Online, discussion boards, study groups, chat rooms and even Facebook groups help create a social community for students. Because of its widespread popularity, social media is now being used to facilitate learning

management systems and social learning tools. R5 Blended learning:  Combining in-classroom learning with virtual learning tools continues as a higher education trend and is also an emerging trend for elementary and secondary schools. Providing online students with face-to-face opportunities to interact with one another and providing in-class students with online tools ofers students more learning opportunities. R5 Real-time:  As the tutoring market continues to grow in the United States, students are beginning to demand real-time assistance. Online learners, as well as traditional students, can now easily gain real-time help to grasp lessons in virtual classrooms. For example, Aurora University’s Writing Center ofers writing help to students both online and oline. Students can sign up for “virtual oice hours� where they receive one-on-one tutoring.

In addition to serving as the Dean of Aurora University Online, Moran is the Director and Associate professor for the Aurora University School of Nursing. She has 33 years of experience in the nursing profession, including 18 years in higher education. Making the Most of your Education Students considering an online education should look to personalize the experience in order to gain the most personal and professional beneits.

An Introduction To Karen Kruger, Director

Mission Statement

To empower children: � To grow in their Christian faith � To strive for academic excellence through the Montessori Method � To grow in their understanding of the teachings and precepts of the Christian faith � To reach out and serve the community as Christ has called us to do Method. Teachers strive to give the children a irm foundation in the Bible, familiarizing them with God’s word through scripture memorization, stories, songs, signing and drama. Basic Christian fundamentals, rather than a particular doctrine, are interwoven into the fabric of the children’s daily experience. Montessori teachers strive to give the children a irm academic foundation by using the Montessori Method of education, which was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 1900’s, and based on the theory that the young child’s mind is

like a sponge which can absorb learning from the surrounding environment. his method builds upon the fact that the years from 3-6 are the foundational years of learning. Children of all ages learn best through individual hands-on learning experiences in an environment where they are free to learn and develop at their own pace. his promotes a love of learning and establishes the foundation for further study of language, math, and the sciences in the elementary years. Montessori students develop a sense of inner discipline and order which enables them to become

independent learners. hey learn respect for their environment, the materials and each other. he students in each classroom experience freedom within the structure of well understood guidelines, which maintains a peaceful learning environment. Children develop an understanding of what is morally and socially acceptable, based on Christian values, and learn to make wise choices. he Montessori curriculum revolves around a three year cycle. Classrooms are grouped in communities of students within a three year age span. While younger students learn skills at their own level, they also absorb other aspects of the classroom. Older children further develop their leadership skills while mastering their academics. he children have equal opportunities for independent study as well as shared lessons and activities. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or schedule an appointment to visit our school. We encourage you to visit with

your child so you may both have the opportunity to see our classes in progress and decide whether you would like to be a part of Midwest Christian Montessori Academy. Midwest Christian Montessori Academy 151 East Briarclif Road Bolingbrook, IL 60440 (630) 783-8644 www.mcmacademy.org Midwest Christian Montessori Academy admits students of any race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

the United States, though many states have seen library closings. A struggling economy has cost libraries some funding, as some municipalities simply cannot afford to keep libraries open as they used to, while others are taking steps to make libraries more popular in the digital age. Many libraries have increased their offerings beyond traditional books. For instance, libraries have long served as low-cost sources for movies and music, offering sizeable DVD and CD collections. But even now movies and songs can be rented inexpensively through various subscription services. As such, many libraries have now begun offering other services. They may have free music and e-Book downloads and free wireless Internet connectiv-

ity, serve as a location for club meetings, and offer an extensive array of children’s programs. Some libraries have become multimedia centers, housing a media lab where teenagers can create Web content or take a test drive of some of the latest applications available. Many of these efforts are geared toward younger readers and promoting a love of reading among youngsters. Because children are the policy makers of the future, libraries find that making changes catered to the younger reader can promote reading while ensuring the long-term viability of libraries. Despite the digital age, some libraries are still thriving thanks to their ability to adapt to the newest technologies available.

compared to children who do not receive musical training. Stanford University researchers have found that musical training improves how the brain processes the spoken word, a finding that researchers say could lead to improving the reading ability of children who have dyslexia and other reading problems. Furthermore, in an analysis of data on more than 25,000 secondary school students, researchers at the United States Department of Education found that students who report consistent involvement in instrumental music during middle school and high school perform significantly better in mathematics by grade 12 than those who do not participate in music programs. There are many reasons why music education can help to make a child a better student, but there also are other benefits that go beyond the classroom environment. Being involved in music also is a social endeavor, and music education can

set the course for lifelong friends and help create social groups that last through school and beyond. Music education breeds familiarity during a school career, when going from class to class or from school to school every year can be nervewracking and unfamiliar. Walking inside of a band room, whether in elementary

school or high school, can create a sense of belonging. It is also a place where students not involved in sports or other activities can gather. Children who move a lot due to a parent’s work may find that joining the marching band or participation in the choir is the one portion of school that is familiar no matter where they attend school.

While neighborhoods may change and teachers differ from school to school, music can be a reliable constant. While not every child will go on to be the next, great musical sensation, thanks to music education at school, he or she will have learned lessons in working as a team and other social benefits that will help in all areas of life.

chool is much more than a place where students gather to learn. For children, school is their first opportunity for social development and introduction to people outside of their family unit. Lessons learned in school go beyond mathematics and language arts. Students learn to cultivate individual interests and find other people who share their interests. Music is one of the ways like-minded children come together. When many people talk about the benefits of music education, they’re quick to point out all of the quantitative and measurable results of that music education.

8NEWS BRIEFS Man gets 20 years in prison for drug trafficking A Woodridge man was sentenced to 20 years in prison last week for his role in a drug-trafficking operation. Dorian Luzaj, 29, of 6313 Winston Drive, Woodridge, was sentenced to 20 years on Thursday after entering a guilty plea of marijuana trafficking and operating a Chicago-area drug ring before DuPage County Circuit Court Judge Robert Kleeman, according to the DuPage County Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. Authorities said Luzaj was the leader of a drug ring with ties to California that was responsible for the distribution of more than 600 pounds of marijuana per month to other dealers throughout the Chicago area. The investigation that led to his arrest, dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Operation Chicago Haze,â&#x20AC;? resulted in 12 arrests and the seizure of approximately $1 million, 11 vehicles and five weapons, according to the Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. Luzaj, who has been in custody since May 20, 2010, will be required to serve 50 percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole, officials said.

Chef Tom Ryan was named “Chapter Chef of the Year” by the American Culinary Federation Chicago Chefs of Cuisine.

What’s the biggest challenge?

What: American Culinary Federation cooks up Culinary Enthusiast membership for the amateur who wants to learn how to prepare gourmet cuisine or simply stay on top of latest trends Contact: www.acfchefs.org

There are only five or six proteins, when it comes to entrees. We have the same population who come here day in and day out 365 days a year. That’s our biggest challenge. Pick any of your favorite restaurants. If you go there five or six times a week, after three or four weeks, (you’ll ask,) “Is that all they have?” That’s why I add new menu items constantly for them.

And the award goes to Lisle native Tom Ryan, just named “Chapter Chef of the Year” by the American Culinary Federation Chicago Chefs of Cuisine. A certified executive chef, the Bartlett resident is director of food services at Resurrection Retirement Community in Chicago, where he oversees a staff of 75, including six cooks and two assistants. They prepare 750 meals daily for the 500 residents.

That’s how I got my feet wet. In high school … a career counselor suggested I go to a vocational school in culinary arts. I enrolled in that my senior year (and) liked it. The teacher took a liking to me and encouraged me to get a culinary degree.

What drew you to a culinary career?

What’s a specialty of yours?

It was by accident. I’m one of seven children. While growing up, each of us took a turn cooking dinner for everyone. It really goes back to that.

Tom Ryan named ‘Chef of the Year’ by Chicago culinary chapter

I enjoy making entrees and soups. One of my signature dishes is a Swiss onion soup: a cream of onion soup finished with grated gruyere cheese

and topped with toasted rye croutons. It’s unusual. I learned to make that in Switzerland. I studied there a few years.

How do approach the menu at Resurrection Retirement Community?

Do you get to hang onto the trophy?

That’s the traveling We have a five-week-cycle trophy. I get to keep it for a menu. I’m constantly changyear. It’s a once-in-a-career ing (it), putting new items on the menu to keep the residents opportunity. excited and looking forward to (the dishes). What’s most satisfying

about your role? The residents. Knowing

that I make a difference in their life.

What are some of your personal favorites to prepare? In the summertime, I love grilling — baby-back ribs or brisket. And during the winter months, chilis and stews and soups. Good old comfort foods.

(Note: Involved in the local, state and national culinary communities, Ryan is also a certified dietary manager and a certified Illinois food service sanitation manager instructor. He serves as treasurer of the Chicago Chefs of Cuisine chapter of the American Culinary Federation and is on the national Audit Committee for the American Culinary Federation.)


ALL-AREA GIRLS BASKETBALL: MVP

Toni Romiti scored more than 1,200 points in her four-year Hinsdale South career.

Bill Ackerman — backerman@shawmedia.com

DARIEN — Anyone who watched Toni Romiti play basketball could clearly see her emotions at play on the court. And that was her dialing it back a bit. “Each year I try to learn to control my emotions,” the Hinsdale South senior said. “Everyone who knows me knows I’m a colorful player, but from last year to this year I progressed and I feel like I learned to control myself because you have to if you want to be able to lead in a positive way.” And lead she did, helping lift the Hornets to a second consecutive West Suburban Gold title and a win over Proviso West in what was a de facto WSC title game in early February. “It was probably a surprise to a lot of people,” Romiti said of winning the con- Basketball favorites ference title after the Hornets graduated four starters. “It Current player: Derrick Rose surprised me a little bit and All-time player: Kobe Bryant, I’m pretty sure it surprised when I was younger our coach a little, too. ... I Movies: “Hoosiers,” “Love and experienced that last year Basketball” so I’m happy the team got to experience that with me this More inside year.” Romiti’s teammates also got a chance to play alongside Meet the All-Area Girls Basketone of the best players to ever ball Team Page 34 don a Hinsdale South uniform. She tallied more than 1,200 points in four varsity seasons, closing out with 476 points this season. Included in those 476 points were highlightreel-type showings against Proviso East (40 points, what is believed to be a school record) and 10 three-pointers against district-rival Hinsdale Central (also a school record). “She’s phenomenal,” said Downers Grove South coach Ellen O’Brien, whose team fell to Romiti and the Hornets twice this season. “She definitely has the talent, and she just exudes confidence.” As impressive as those single-game performances were, Romiti will take away a whole lot more from this season. “The whole season was awesome,” she said. “I remember when Kerry Just took a charge in the Proviso East game. I’m pretty sure it was her first charge of the year so that was really awesome.” Romiti also said a game in which MacKenzie Kern scored 26 points will be a major memory when she looks back on her senior season. “That was a big deal to me because she’s a good friend and we played together in grade school,” said Romiti, who is looking to play at the next level and has visits planned to Long Island University and South Carolina Upstate. As competitive and demanding as she was on the floor, Romiti was a bit of a softy away from the court. Before home games, she would take freshman Tatyana Presley and Sydney Kopp to Portillo’s in an effort to help nurture the next crop of Hornets. And what does she hope they learned during those meals? “One thing I always want them to remember is having fun and competing and playing with heart,” she said. “Playing with heart, a coach can’t teach you that. Anybody can have the skills, but playing with heart and hustle, that’s what matters to me.”

ALL-AREA GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAM | 2013 Aysia Bugg School: Bolingbrook Year: Junior A newcomer to Bolinbrook’s program, Bugg made the transition to the Raiders’ uptempo, pressing style look seamless. A speedy guard with deft ball-handling skills, Bugg’s athleticism, scoring ability and tenacious defense added to Bolingbrook’s ability to play its trademark style. Through the Raiders’ regional title game, Bugg was averaging a team-high 16 points per game on 48-percent shooting.

Toni Romiti School: Hinsdale South Year: Senior Romiti: This fouryear starter and four-time all-conference selection averaged 20 points per game, 4.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 85-percent shooting from the free throw line.

She also shot 85 percent from the free throw line and dished out 87 assists. “I hear that from a lot of coaches: ‘I can’t believe she’s only a sophomore,’” coach Tom McKenna said.

Lily Sarros School: Hinsdale Central Year: Senior One of just three seniors on the roster, Sarros averaged a double-double with 12.7 points and 13.7 rebounds per game. She was the leader for Central during a season in which it had separate four- and sixgame winning streaks. “She was like money in the bank,” coach Tom McKenna said. “You give her the ball and she would find a way to put it in the basket.”

Sarah Costello School: Downers Grove North Year: Junior Often one of the most athletic players on the floor at any given time, Costello did a little bit of everything for the Trojans, ball-handling, long-range shooting and rebounding included. She led the team with 13.3 points per game to go along with 7.6 rebounds, 3.7 steals and 3.5 assists per game. Costello was also named West Suburban Silver allconference as well as all-tournament at the Glenbard East Thanksgiving tourney.

Kristina Fernette School: Lisle Year: Senior Fernette, along with fellow seniors Kelly Urban and Skylar Tomko, was a key piece for a Lisle team that enjoyed one of the best seasons in school history. An Interstate Eight all-conference selection, Fernette averaged 10.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game and helped the Lions to an undefeated conference title and a spot in the regional championship game this winter.

MacKenzie Kern School: Hinsdale South Year: Junior A versatile player for the West Suburban Gold champion Hornets, Kern was listed on the roster as both a guard and a forward. She had the toughness and finishing ability to play in the paint along with seniors Kristen Demitrijevic and Kerry Just, but she also possessed the ball-handling and outside shooting to complement guards Toni Romiti and Mary Clare Ladd.

School: Lemont Year: Senior This senior had a nice season for the Indians, stepping up in the absence of fellow senior Kelsey Motto, who missed most of the winter with a knee injury. Toth led Lemont in scoring with 10 points per game. She also topped the Indians in blocked shots (29), offensive rebounds (68) and defensive rebounds (123) while shooting 74 percent from the free throw line.

School: Downers Grove South Year: Senior A threeyear varsity player, Zemke did a little bit of everything for the Mustangs. In addition to averaging a team-best 9.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per game, she also dished out 2.3 assists per contest. She scored 25 points against Proviso East this season and was the leading scorer and rebounder in more than half of South’s games. “Without her we’d be at a big loss,” South coach Ellen O’Brien said.

WINNETKA — Ryan Kujawa’s big meet experience paid dividends last weekend. The Downers Grove South senior diver sneaked into finals at last weekend’s state swimming and diving meet, sitting in 10th place after the preliminary round of dives. But he moved up in a big way in Saturday’s finals and vaulted up to a sixth-place finish. With 291.45 points after the prelims, Kujawa was less than six points ahead of the 12th and final state finals qualifiers, yet he was less than eight points back of the diver in sixth place. His big meet experience (he is a two-time sectional champ and state qualifier) came through Saturday as he made a move up the standings to earn another all-state finish. Last winter, he finished fourth in the state with a score of 397.85. Kujawa wasn’t the only South athlete at the state meet. Junior Josh Jaeger also competed in diving and tallied a score of 141.70. Senior Alec Masterson touched the wall in 21.88 seconds and finished in 22nd place in the 50-yard freestyle.

Downers South wins, North falls in playoff openers By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com

WHEATON — With the season on the line in Monday’s Class 4A Wheaton Warrenville South regional quarterfinal, Downers Grove South boys basketball couldn’t have been happy to see a 17-12 deficit at the end of the first quarter. But that scenario hardly fazed the No. 13-seed Mustangs, who rallied for a 52-43 win over No. 20 Yorkville and moved on to face No. 4 seed West Aurora in a regional semifinal Tuesday night. “We weathered the storm,” South coach Jay Baum said.

Our defense was key, and we got the ball inside on their 2-3 zone. It took a little bit of patience, but we didn’t want it to turn into a three-point shooting contest.” South (15-11) made its move in the second quarter, holding the Foxes to five points and grabbing a 25-22 halftime

lead. South maintained a 34-31 edge going into the fourth and pulled away late for the win. The Mustangs had three players score in double figures. Robert Mara led the way with 17 points, nine coming at the free throw line, while Scott McNellis tallied 16. Jordan Cannon drained a pair of three-pointers and finished with 10 points.

Downers Grove North LISLE — Instead of catching up on lost weekend sleep, Jim Thomas hoped to stay up late Monday night. The Downers Grove North boys basketball coach wanted

to spend the time getting ready for another playoff game. Unfortunately, Thomas and the Trojans didn’t get that chance as Plainfield North won 57-46 in a quarterfinal of the Class 4A Benet regional. “We went to a rotation we haven’t used a lot, and that limited the sets we’re used to running,” Thomas said. “The kids did a great job battling.” Sophomore starter Myles Farley went down with an injury on the third possession of the game and didn’t return. Pete Metros, Ray Greco, Clark Worabey, Garrett Tierney and Rimas Barsketis played in his stead.

The Trojans led 16-14 at the end of the first, but the Tigers were up 31-19 at halftime. Downers North (10-15) cut it to 36-31 in the third quarter, but couldn’t come all the way back from the halftime deficit. “We spent a lot of energy coming back in the third quarter,” Thomas said. “We didn’t have a lot of gas coming down the stretch.” Senior Nick Norton paced North with 20 points and David Edwards added eight points, but it wasn’t enough to lift the Trojans to victory. Plainfield North’s Trevor Stumpe led all scorers with 22 points.

Monkeys have long tails and climb using all four limbs. They live mostly in trees in tropical areas, and spend their time leaping from tree to tree using their dexterous legs, arms and tail.

CHIMPANZEES

GORILLAS

Unlike monkeys, chimpanzees don’t have tails. They are small apes that are able to use tools and communicate with other chimps, and they are known for their intelligence.

Gorillas are apes that are much larger than most chimps and monkeys. They have big, powerful arms and shoulders, and can grow up to 5.5 feet tall.

Goodall was able to learn much about chimpanzees by simple observation using her binoculars and a notebook. What can you learn about animal behavior using observation? Next time you visit a zoo or wilderness park, take your notebook with you. Note the following behaviors while observing the animals from a safe place: ® Where does the animal live? Where does the animal go? ® How does the animal socialize? In groups, or alone? ® Does the animal eat? Does the animal sleep? What do you notice about these activities? ® Do you see anything you haven’t seen before? If so, draw a picture of what you see, or describe it with words. ® What do you hear? Describe the noises. By taking good field notes, you are on your way to learning about the behavior of these animals.
