DOWNERS GROVE – If it hadn’t been a surprise, Lester Elementary School PE teacher Pat Brown says she probably would have found a way to avoid all the attention. Brown was busy hosting Lester Elementary School’s annual Jump Rope for Heart fundraising event Jan. 25 – as she has for the past 26 years – when Principal Carin Novak, Lester PTA officers and a crowd of parents and friends gave her a surprise. Brown was presented with the National PTA Life Achievement Award. It’s the highest honor from the nation’s largest child advocacy organization. Brown has been getting students moving as a physical education teacher before, during and after school for 31 years, and given the option, would rather talk about the importance of childhood exercise rather than her own accolades.

and make sure the body they have now is the body they’ll have when they get older. There’s a saying, ‘If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live?’” She also introduced an after-school intramural volleyball program for sixth-graders that culminates with a game against the staff. Through her commitment to the Jump Rope for Heart charity, Lester has raised more than $156,000 for the American Heart Association and remains the only school to devote a weekend day to the program. Similar to a fundraising run, participants find sponsors to donate for every minute the person jumps rope during the three-hour event. Through it all, it’s the evident joy when a student is healthy and active that keeps Brown motivated after 31 years. “I like when I see the smiles on the faces and the students are enthusiastic,” she said. “I think I must be doing something OK. I don’t have the answers. Let’s have some fun and let’s get them moving.”

D-99 transition center a point of pride By ED MCMENAMIN emcmenamin@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – Students in the Transition 99 Program were greeted by a new, $1.8 million facility when they came back to class in January. The program serves between 40 and 45 special needs students from the time they finish high school to when they turn 22. They learn life skills such as cooking as well as job skills and other classroom learning. In addition, most of the students in the program are placed in internships or jobs for part of the day to prepare them for employment when they leave the program. They also make visits to the YMCA for physical activity and recreation to encourage healthy lifestyle practices once they leave the program, and teachers help the students enroll for classes at the College of DuPage. “I really think the transition program allows them the opportunity to be a lot more independent but still have the support of the school district,” District 99 Assistant Superintendent for Special Services

Erica Benson - ebenson@shawmedia.com

Transition 99 teacher’s aide Julie Julitz makes a grocery list for lunch with Benjamin Fera (left) and Frank Young Jr. on Monday. Scott Wuggazer said. “It’s been invaluable for these kids to have the extra couple years of support they need to move into adulthood.” The district is hosting an open house from 4 to 7 p.m. today at the facility, 4232 Venard Road. The program was temporarily hosted at the two high schools as the district bought the building, which was essen-

tially a shell, and built out the new center. The Transition 99 Program was previously in a leased building in Westmont for several years. The district bought the new building for about $600,000, and the interior build-out and exterior work cost about $1.2 million, according to District 99 Director of Physical Plant and Operations Jim Kolodziej. “I think it came out phe-

nomenal,” he said. “Reaction from staff and students – they’ve been in there a week – it’s been great. It’s all positive. “I really feel that the kids are going to benefit from this not only for this semester, but for many years to come.” The structure now contains four classrooms, bathrooms and a shower area, a large multipurpose area containing two full kitchens, a project room

for a shredding business and a ceramic coaster-making business, a conference room, and an office and storage space. The whole project was completed in about three months, though there is some landscaping work to be finished in the spring. Wuggazer described the program as a continuation of a team effort that begins when the students enter District 99 as high school freshmen. In high school, the students are introduced to job and life skills which are augmented at the Transition 99 Program, he said. While in the program, many of the students work at Walgreens, IKEA and other businesses. “The goal is that they then become competitively employed,” he said. “Or their skills might increase to be able to generalize out [from IKEA or Walgreens] to a different business or organization.” Lead teacher Mike DellaMaria asked his students last week how they felt in the new space, many responded with the word “pride,” he said. “They’re very proud of the building,” he said. “They’re very excited.”

Governor, you are supposed to be the small-business advocate and the large-business advocate. You don’t need to appoint anybody. So if that’s your answer to being 50th in the country in jobs creation, I am very much disappointed. *REP. PATTI BELLOCK, R-HINSDALE What we didn’t hear from the Governor today was a commitment to faithfully implement the bipartisan, cost saving Medicaid health care reforms for the most vulnerable population in our state that he once championed and is

now not fully supporting. Members of both parties worked too hard to achieve reforms to ensure that essential quality health care remains accessible to individuals and families across our state who need it most. We cannot turn our backs on them by letting politics get in the way of doing what’s right. REP. JEANNE IVES, R-WHEATON He started out on the right foot by recognizing the problem and recognizing it was a man-made disaster. When you recognize the problem and recognize that man created it, you realize man can fix it. … But even though he got that point right, his direction at the end really bothers me in that he called for additional spending without saying how he would afford that. Without recognizing why we won’t have job growth [...], that we haven’t reformed the budget, we heard a lot about a blueprint for a nanny state.

In addition, if you have some nondeductible IRAs (on prior Form 8606) some of your withdrawal may not be taxable. The computation is done on the 2012 Form 8606. And, finally, if you withdrew an IRA before the age of 59 1/2 for medical bills or education or a first home, it may not be subject to the 10% penalty, shown on Form 5329. Not Simple!

Five years to the day after he was sworn in as governor, Pat Quinn delivered his 2014 State of the State address to the Illinois General assembly. In the Jan. 29 speech, Quinn touched on the progress that was made in those five years in the wake of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich was removed from office and on some of the goals he had for the future of the state.

Clock ticking for businesses not in compliance with sign ordinance By ED MCMENAMIN emcmenamin@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – Owners of 270 properties violating the village’s new sign ordinance received letters last month notifying them to meet compliance by May or see possible fines. The mandatory compliance follows a nine-year grace period given to property owners following the ordinance’s passage in 2005. So far, 88 percent of properties now conform to the ordinance, according to village staff, but 345 noncomplying signs still lay across 270 properties. Mayor Martin Tully said the high rate of voluntary compliance shows the new rules, which require smaller, lower signs farther from the curb, among other requirements, have not been an undue burden on business. The grace period was originally set at seven years, he said, before a two-year-extension, because the average sign

“What we want to do is assist with compliance, and improve the aesthetics of the community.” Doug Kozlowski Village spokesman

is typically replaced after seven years in the normal course of business. He also praised the noticeably improved look of Ogden Avenue and other busy streets where the new rules have improved the village’s general aesthetics. Though, for some longtime businesses, the expense of replacing a sign is daunting. “It’s an expense I know was a longtime coming, but I’m still not exactly happy with it,” said Bohemian Garden Restaurant General Manager Joe Wojdyla. The restaurant’s distinctive

sign at 980 E. 75th St. was in place when Wojdyla’s parents bought the 27-year-old restaurant in 1995. It is bigger than the new ordinance allows. He said a new sign might cost between $5,000 and $10,000. He’s also concerned a smaller sign will give them a competitive disadvantage. The family hopes to work with the village to see what variances or other options might be available. “I’m on the border of Downers Grove – across 75th Street is Darien,” he said. “And Darien is not requiring their businesses to change their signs.” Village Planner Stan Popovich said staff makes site visits regularly to help property owners understand the new rules and find possible solutions. “What we want to do is assist with compliance, and improve the aesthetics of the community,” village spokesman Doug Kozlowski said. Tully echoed Popovich’s comments about working with

individual property owners to find solutions. He added that, in a general sense, the village could be open to modifying the ordinance in the future, especially taking into consideration that different business corridors could possibly warrant different rules. “Nobody said it was carved in stone,” he said. “We do recognize that not every segment of town is the same.” The ordinance began as a look at large, decrepit signs on Ogden Avenue in the early 2000s. The conversation eventually grew into committees and public hearings and the village-wide ordinance now in place. DuPage County Board Member Brian Krajewski was Downers Grove mayor in 2005 and said he voted against the ordinance. He described it as another burden on businesses already paying the new stormwater fee and recovering from the recession. He also takes issue with one-size-fits-all rules for signs

across disparate business corridors. “Right now, the village needs to be as least-restrictive on businesses as they can,” he said. The sign at his law office on Warren Avenue does not meet the setback requirements, he said. He plans to file for a zoning variance, which is not free – it’s a $477 application fee for commercial, and $398 for residential properties. The ordinance affects property owners other than businesses as well. School District 99 signs at both high schools are not in compliance with the ordinance and will need to be replaced this year. The Main Street sign at North High School and two signs at South High School are all too big, too tall and too close to the curb. Though, to bring the Main Street sign into compliance with the setback requirement would place it inside the school. The district

Politicians respond to Obama’s State of the Union By NATHAN LURZ

Quotes from President Obama’s State of the Union:

nlurz@shawmedia.com

On political inaction:

President Barack Obama delivered his 2014 State of the Union address Jan. 28, promising a “year of action.” He touched on a number of topics, including immigration reform, ending the war in Afghanistan, tackling economic disparity, using executive power to increase the minimum wage and asking for help against the gridlock that caused the shutdown of the U.S. government last year. Afterward, local politicians issued statements weighing in on the address and the topics he set – and didn’t set – as part of his legislative agenda for the new year.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. “Improving opportunities for American families requires innovation and action and I plan to work with my colleagues to build on the work we’ve done in my Defense Appropriations Subcommittee to

“The point is, there are millions of Americans outside Washington who are tired of stale political arguments and are moving this country forward. They believe, and I believe, that here in America, our success should depend not on accident of birth but the strength of our work ethic and the scope of our dreams.”

On income inequality: “Today, after four years of economic growth, corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher, and those at the top have never done better. But average wages have barely budged. reverse the devastating cuts to federally funded research and development and grow these programs for years to come. “... Tonight’s speech challenged us in Congress to set aside the partisanship and

Inequality has deepened. Upward mobility has stalled. The cold, hard fact is that even in the midst of recovery, too many Americans are working more than ever just to get by; let alone get ahead. And too many still aren’t working at all.”

for everybody. So let’s get immigration reform done this year.”

On presidential action: “Some require congressional action, and I’m eager to work with all of you. But America does not stand still, and neither will I. So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.”

On immigration reform:

“Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost $1 trillion in the next two decades. And for good reason: When people come here to fulfill their On global warming: dreams – to study, invent, contrib“...

THE ENDODONTIST

13115 Butterfield Road, Suite 200, Downers Grove, IL 888-I-SING-HU

The Source of All Truth is Within You ECK Worship Service Sunday, February 9, 11 a.m. Visit eck-illinois.org for a list of events at the ECKANKAR Center. The public is warmly invited.

Q: What is an endodontist? A: Within the general practice of dentistry are numerous areas of specialty recognized by the American Dental Association. After the education and training that all dentists complete, some elect to go on for further training in one of these specialty areas. An endodontist, for instance, is a dentist who specializes in care of the tooth’s pulp, the soft substance in the tooth’s interior that contains nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. The pulp extends from the crown of the tooth to the tip of the root in the jawbone. The word “endodontics,’ by the way, comes from the two Greek words: “endo,” which means “inside,” and “odons,” which means “tooth.” Endodontists are perhaps most closely associated with performing root canal therapy. In a root canal, the endodontist removes the diseased pulp, cleans out the inside of the tooth and finally seals the tooth. The endodontist also specializes in the care of cracked teeth. In most circumstances, you would come under the care of an endodontist by way of a referral from your regular dentist. Among other areas of dental specialty are the orthodontist, who specializes in straightening teeth, and the periodontist, who specializes in caring for the teeth’s support structures, namely gums and jaw, Talk with your dentist about areas of dental specialty.

Downers Grove library is all about the books We’ve all become accustomed to computer- and internet-related disasters. We know about hacked financial systems at Target and other retailers, the crash of the Great Firewall of China, the malfunction of Gmail and ongoing difficulties with Affordable Care Act enrollment. Dependent as we all are on our computers, tablets and smartphones, we sometimes want to swear off high-tech completely. The Downers Grove Public Library is a haven for highCOMMUNITY tech-lovers, but we are, first VOICE and foremost, all about the Rick printed book. This amazing invention, now seemingly Ashton low-tech, has graced our civilization for centuries. And just in case anyone wants to enter premature mourning for the book, I invite you to consider a national event that happens every January. That event is the American Library Association’s announcement of the year’s winners of the John Newbery Medal for the best work of children’s literature and the Randolph Caldecott Medal for the best children’s book illustrations. This year, Kate DiCamillo has won the Newbery Medal for her book “Flora and Ulysses,” a comic superhero tale featuring a deadly vacuum cleaner and a mighty squirrel. Brian Floca is the winner of the highly-sought Caldecott Medal for his illustrations in “Locomotive,” a story of the early years of train travel. He also wrote the text of the book. These medals matter. Both of this year’s winners are established authors whose earlier books are well known. But the awards virtually guarantee that young readers and their parents, teachers and librarians will purchase more copies and give these authors the heightened visibility and success they deserve. The books now enter into the ongoing “must-read” category. They are not yet in the company of “Charlotte’s Web” or “Green Eggs and Ham,” but perhaps one day they will be. Meanwhile, the Downers Grove Public Library maintains its well-established focus on books and reading. Our expert librarians are happy to guide you to these prize-winners and thousands of other good reads. Neither the books nor the librarians will ever crash in the middle of a page, suffer from malicious hackers, or give you an error message. Read on!

Rick Ashton is the executive director of the Downers Grove Public Library.

8SOUND OFF

Ticket improperly parked cars I am very pleased with the effort that the village of Brookfield has put forth in keeping our roads plowed. The one problem that hinders their effort is parked cars. Yes, the rotating parking is a great idea if people follow the rules. The trouble is, too many people do not move their cars. What is needed is for the police department to go on a ticket blitz and start issuing tickets to those that do not move their cars. Many people go through great effort to move their cars, especially if they have to enter through the alley. And then someone will park their car in front of that home, and the homeowner does not get plowed. While issuing snow tickets they also could ticket the cars that still do not have village vehicle stickers. This is a complaint not only for our neighborhood but from others in Brookfield.

The crossing guard also indicated there were no was standing on top of the snow problems with the Affordable mound.

I enjoy watching the televised Village Board meetings of the Village of La Grange Park. However, there’ve been problems with the microphones on many occasions. It’s finally been rectified last year. But … Jan. 28’s meeting had long gaps where the mics did not work. This is unacceptable. I watch La Grange Village Board meetings every Saturday morning, and they’ve never had a microphone problem. It’s time to really get to the root of it, please.

Churches need to stop ‘whining’ about fees To the editor, In reading the Jan. 29 edition of the Downers Grove Suburban Life, I could not help but comment on the persistent whining of the area churches against the stormwater fee! The argument of church and state separation – well that is a catch phrase that does not seem to apply here. I think many of us would be more upset if the “state” gave the church a “free ride” when it comes to stormwater mitigation. As the article alludes to, churches represent the largest single neighborhood entities that make up nonpermeable stormwater runoff surface. So these churches think their neighbors, regardless of their religious affiliation, should pay not only just their share of the cost but the churches’ share as well? How is that separation of church and state? The threat that services to the poor will be affected is a hollow one. A church runs a whole lot of expensive programs that do not just address the poor. The parishioners of the church should also be the ones to support their particular church’s budget so that whatever the costs are, their church continues to do good works as they see fit. While I disagree with Downers Grove government on a lot of issues, this one I fully support their resistance on. I support the mayor and the council to continue their resolve to keep the stormwater utility fee in place for all property owners. Stephen Lyczak Downers Grove

Almost four years ago, the president’s healthcare reform plan began with worthy goals: increasing access to quality care and lowering costs for all Americans. Now that the law’s new insurance marketplaces are open, it’s clear that Obamacare not only fails to meet these goals, it creates an entirely new set of challenges. So far, millions of Americans have been kicked off of their healthcare plans and forced into more expensive federal or state exchanges. And after finding out they couldn’t in fact keep their healthcare plans as promised, millions will soon learn that the doctor they’ve seen and known for years is out of their network,

COMMUNITY VOICE Peter Roskam despite another one of President Obama’s pledges that you could keep your doctor if you wanted to. We can do better than the president’s healthcare law, which has brought skyrocketing out of pocket costs and fewer options. President Obama consistently says, “if you’ve got good ideas, bring them to me, …[if] you still think this law is a bad idea then you’ve got to tell us specifically what you’d do differently.” That’s exactly

what House Republicans have done. For years, Republicans have been putting forward healthcare reforms centered on preserving the patient-doctor relationship and offering quality, low-cost healthcare through increased competition. Republican alternatives ensure that healthcare is more affordable, more available and more responsive to the American people’s needs without imposing a onesize-fits-all big-government approach. Access to high-quality, low-cost health insurance is attainable by opening healthcare markets across state lines, allowing Americans to purchase health care in a competitive, nationwide system. The free market should be able to work within guide posts set up by the government, not micromanaged through Washington’s ineffective bureaucracy. This way, insurance companies and hospitals must produce high quality, affordable coverage options to make insurance companies work hard to get and keep your business. This is in contrast to Obamacare forcing everyone into the healthcare market where young, healthy people pay more so that older, sicker individuals pay less. The administration is already having serious problems convincing young people to sign up for insurance – dooming this cost-shifting model for failure. Republican healthcare reforms keep costs down by structuring markets in a way that makes sense. Allowing a greater number of individuals to join together in the marketplace gives them better access to more robust insurance options at a lower cost. By improving and expanding high-risk pools through Universal Access Programs, all Americans – regardless of pre-existing conditions or past illnesses – can have access to coverage. There are also plans that create pools for small businesses, letting them come

Downers Grove sycamores survive cold

Suburban Life • mysuburbanlife.com • Wednesday, February 5, 2014 • SD

DOWNERS GROVE – Evanston officials discovered dozens of sycamore trees with severe trunk splits during the last polar vortex, but trees in Downers Grove have so far been safe from the phenomenon, officials said. Sub-zero temperatures likely caused the damage to the Evanston trees during the cold plunge earlier this month, according to media reports. There are 92 sycamores in Downers Grove parkways maintained by the village, and Downers Grove spokesman Doug Kozlowski said the village forester has not discovered any cracks. According to media reports, of the 303 sycamores and closely related London plane trees, 60 will need to be removed in Evanston, and 76 others had shallow cracks and will likely survive.

The DuPage Children’s Museum Board of Directors has announced that it has chosen a new president and CEO to fill the shoes of retiring 22-year president Susan E. Broad, according to a news release from the museum. Sarah Orleans of Portland, Ore. will bring two decades of executive experience, including most recently eight years as the executive director of the Portland Children’s Museum, the release said. During her tenure, the Portland museum saw its attendance grow to 320,000 visitors annually and created The Museum Center for Learning, which is dedicated to research and professional development for educators. David Carpenter, the DuP-

age museum’s board chairman, said in a statement that the museum staff was confident that Orleans would be able to take the museum to another level of success in its mission to build partnerships and educate. “I am honored by the opportunity to join such a dynamic and highly regarded organization with a clear and focused mission to transform the learning landscape for young children,” Orleans said in a statement. “DuPage Children’s Museum has a rich history in this community and is recognized nationally for its work in early learning. I’m inspired by the deep commitment of the board, staff, volunteer community, members and donors to lead this world-class organization.”

• UNION confidence in the American economy.”

“Tonight the president spoke of how the American ideal of opportunity for all has suffered blows in recent years. He’s right: in the last five years, our labor participation rate is down to historic lows, household income is down, upward mobility has stalled and the poverty rate is far too high. Across the board the data shows that people are worse off now than when President Obama took office. Yet the president continues to cling to policy prescriptions that are the very reason so many Americans are struggling.”

Rep. Bill Foster, D-Aurora “I was very pleased to see President Obama lay out an agenda to support working families. Everyone deserves a shot at the American dream – to get a good education, a job that supports a family, and a place to call home. Unfortunately, for too many, that dream is becoming harder to achieve. Our country succeeds when our middle class succeeds and it is critical our policies support working families. “I was pleased to hear the president’s call to action. Too many critical issues have fallen by the wayside because Congress has failed to act – unemployment insurance, raising the minimum wage, commonsense gun control laws and comprehensive immigration reform. It’s time for Congress to get to work.”

The Fairmount School Parent Teachers Association won a $2,000 grant from Target to buy 300 copies of “The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs” for the One Book One School program. The book tells the story of a bored schoolboy who is challenged by his family to find seven wonders in his small town. Fairmount families and staff will read about 10 pages of the book out loud each night at home, allowing all students at the school to follow along with the story regardless of grade or reading level. “I think it’s a great way to get kids excited about reading,” Fairmount PTA member Heather Spang said. “One of the first grade teachers mentioned that her kids were really excited to read the same book the sixth-graders were reading.” The book also will serve

• ORDINANCE Continued from page 6 will likely request a zoning variance to place the sign closer to the property line. District 99 has planned to spend about $54,000 to replace the sign at North High School, and $70,000 to knock down the two signs at South and replace it with one new sign. The district has also shown interest in adding digital displays to the new signs, similar to several neighboring high

as the basis for programming for the entire month. Every classroom will have different activities appropriate for the grade level, and students are being encouraged to perform “Total Random Acts of Caring and Kindness,” in and outside of school. Students will be rewarded with train tickets that will be placed on tracks that run through the school. The program also coincides with a fundraiser for items that will be donated to a homeless shelter. And there are guest speakers at the school to read the book out loud to students who might have missed the previous night’s chapter. “It’s nice to have a whole family project where the entire community is involved,” Fairmount School PTA communications co-chair Jennifer Galvan said. “So when the child is walking to school, the crossing guard will say ‘Hey did you read that part about what happened to [the main character].’” Galvan said that once the school finishes, they will pass it to another school so they continue the program. “It’s a great way for the community to come together through reading,” she said. schools, to promote school activities and other announcements. The village’s sign ordinance bars those types of signs. District 99 spokesperson Jill Browning said the district is still in talks with the village regarding its various options. Tully said simple zoning variances would not allow the school district to erect a digital sign and that the ordinance itself would need to be amended. Fines for non-complying signs can range from $75 to $750, the standard code violation penalties in the village.

time the program will be offered. At the first presentation, those who participated expressed interest in another event. “There’s a rise [in random shootings] across the country,” Schlicher said. “The more information we can get out to the community and citizens to give them more awareness, the more beneficial it will be.” Schlicher pointed to recent incidents, at Purdue University and at a Maryland shopping mall. “It captures people’s attention,” Schlicher said. “If it can happen somewhere, it can happen here.”

They want to support an organization that has been around 44 years and has spent their whole existence trying to make life a little easier for those who are really struggling. I thank you again for your willingness to take on this issue. It has turned out to be a real human interest story. My thanks, too, to all those involved in the decision to do this. All the volunteers at FISH send our deepest gratitude and heartfelt appreciation for your articles.

The articles obviously struck a chord with concerned and compassionate people in the community. Just this week we received a large donation from a person who knows and supports our work. We have now collected more than $8,500. I don’t think any of us thought this would have happened this quickly. I attribute a lot of our success to your ability to present the story in a way that is not only interesting, but makes one want to get June Miller involved. Corresponding Secretary, FISH Food Pantry

WESTMONT – A man pulls out a gun while you’re shopping in a crowded marketplace. What do you do? Westmont police are hoping to prepare community members for that scenario – one that has become more real as random shooting incidents continue to haunt the country – with a presentation later this month. The Active Shooter Presentation is a mental preparation exercise for all ages to discuss what to do if confronted by an active shooter, according to Westmont Sgt. Jim Schlicher, who is running the program. The presentation will encourage participants to focus on three actions if confronted with a shooter: run, hide or fight, Schlicher said. “Your body is either going to freeze, [run] or fight in a stressful situation,” Schlicher said. “We’re hoping [this program] can get people to bypass the ‘freeze’ part if the situation ever arises.” The program will be offered from 7 to 9 p.m. Feb. 18 at police headquarters, 500 N. Cass Ave. While the department will hold about 70 or 90 spots, Schlicher’s hoping to get at least 50 or more people in attendance. The presentation was originally scheduled in January but had to be canceled due to inclement winter weather. It’s the second

Restaurant reviews

Made in Italy conjures flavorful getaway GLEN ELLYN – As usual this winter, it was snowing as we neared downtown Glen Ellyn and our destination, a 9-month-old trattoria called Made in Italy. But then the magic happened. We stepped through the foyer under the watchful eye of Sophia Loren peeking at us from a balcony hung with a simulated washline of silken lingerie, and the glow of a very real fireplace beckoning from a few feet beyond. It felt like we’d stumbled in from an Italian lane and found refuge. Vocalists like Andrea Bocelli provided the escapist musical backdrop. We couldn’t resist the offer of a table looking over the fireplace, the bottles on its mantle sending not so subliminal suggestions of uncorking a sparkling Prosecco. Chianti won out, and soon accompanied crusty bread perfect for dipping in olive oil from a cruet containing garlic cloves and red pepper for a burst of flavor. Sprinkle on the Parmesan, and it’s a tasty prelude to the meal. Murals and other art set a romantic stage in the intimate dining room with its 12 tables along two walls of windows looking across to the train depot. For an appetizer, we decided to share the stuffed eggplant. Slicing into the two big servings revealed sushi-style precision to a roll-up of rich filling inside tender eggplant smothered in sauce and cheese. Entrees come with soup or salad, and we each ordered one so we could try both. We split a nice dinner salad, and especially appreciated the homemade minestrone brimming with chunks of carrot, potato and zucchini that hit the spot on a cold night. My date opted for one of the evening’s specials, the Rigatoni Toscana, featuring an excellent homemade pasta paired with hearty slices of Italian sausage and portobello mushrooms in an Asiago-infused sauce. “It was a very tasty and

‘This win is huge’

DGN girls prevail against Proviso West, forge tie atop conference

By ALEX SOULIER

Downers Grove N. 51 Proviso West 35

asoulier@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – Downers Grove North senior guard Sarah Costello had not beaten Proviso West since her freshman season with the team. But in one of the final home games of her varsity career, Costello’s double-double powered Downers Grove North to an emphatic 51-35 victory against Proviso West on Saturday that brought the Trojans level with the Panthers atop the West Suburban Silver conference. “I thought we were able to come together today and get a win when we needed it most,” Costello said. “It’s been three years since we last beat Proviso West, so getting this win is huge. Now, we have a chance to at least get a share of the conference title.” It was the second time in a week that the top two teams in the conference squared off, as Proviso prevailed 57-52 on Jan. 25 and handed the Trojans their first WSS loss of the season. But North evened the score on Saturday, spoiling Proviso West’s undefeated conference run and pulling even West in the Silver standings with two conference games left. North was scheduled to travel to Glenbard West Jan. 30 before hosting Lyons Township in the WSS finale at 7:30 p.m. Friday. If both teams win out, they will share the West Suburban Silver Conference championship. Proviso West scored the first five points of the game on Saturday, but the Trojans roared back with 14-4 run to close the opening quarter, giving them a lead they would not relinquish the rest of the game.

THREE KEYS TO VICTORY Second quarter D: North held Proviso West to just one point in the second quarter, and 10 points in the first half. Double-double duo: Two starters recorded double-doubles: Peyton Winters (10 rebounds, 10 blocks) and Sarah Costello (19 points and 13 rebounds). Costello’s third quarter: Costello dominated play in the third quarter, taking two charges, scoring eight points and dishing an assist as the Trojans put the game out of reach.

Downers Grove North’s Peyton Winters looks for an opening to the hoop between two Proviso West players during Saturday’s game. The Trojans won to move into a first place tie atop the West Suburban Silver.

In the second quarter, a swarming Downers Grove North defense limited Proviso West to just one point, which came as a result of a free

throw with under a minute remaining in the half. “Anytime you give up only 10 points in the first half, that’s a solid defensive effort,”

North head coach Stephan Bolt said. “For the most part, I think our defense continued to frustrate their offense in the second half, too.”

On the other side of the court, Costello paced the Trojans offense. The senior guard scored eight of North’s 12 points in the third quarter, extending the lead to 35-18. Costello finished the game with 19 points, 13 rebounds and four assists, garnering high praise from her coach. “Sarah is a competitor,” Bolt said. “She has been on varsity for four years and has seen this team evolve and grow. We have never had a chance to compete for a conference title, but with that in sight, she has been playing at a very high level.” Junior Peyton Winters also saved one of he better performances of the season for the game Proviso West, which was without Toledo commit Mikaela Boyd after the guard injured her knee on Friday. Winters wreaked havoc in the low post, recording 10 rebounds, 10 blocks, and seven points. Jaida Green added 12 points while Lauren Porcelli scored nine points for Downers Grove North.

DOWNERS GROVE – Danny Spinuzza has had a lot of big games for Downers Grove South this season, but the show he put on Friday against Addison Trail might have been his best yet. Spinuzza scored a ca reer-high 27 points to lift the Mustangs to a 66-51 win over an Addison Trail team that had won three West Suburban Gold games in a row. “It was just make a couple shots and then feel good,” Spinuzza said. “The team starts going and everything starts feeling good. It was just my night.” Spinuzza scored nine of the team’s first 11 points and the Mustangs raced out to a 13-3 lead. He swished a 3-pointer at the halftime buzzer to go into the break with 19 points, matching AT’s total for the half. DGS led 33-19 at the break and was barely threatened the rest of the way. In the second half, the Blazers tried to double team Spinuzza more often than they did in the first half and he was able to get his teammates more involved. “I’m not trying to score a bunch of points,” the senior guard said. “I’m just trying to do what I can to help my team get the win at the end of the game. That’s the main thing. It was just winning the game. I couldn’t care less about the points and assists as long as we’re winning.” DGS also won on Saturday, defeating Hinsdale South 57-54. With the pair of weekend wins, the Mustangs improved to 8-9 overall and 5-3 in the Gold. Entering Friday, Addison Trail was in second in the Gold, but DGS now occupies that spot. The Blazers had been playing well, but DGS decimated them from early on in the game. “People were looking around when Spinuzza was hitting those shots trying to point fingers and I said, ‘Guys there’s nothing else we can do,’” AT coach Brendan Lyons said. “He’s falling away with a hand in his face and [making the shot]. He’s a good player.

Downers Grove South’s Danny Spinuzza splits the Addison Trail defense and shoots during Friday’s home game. Spinuzza scored 27 points in the Mustangs’ 66-51 win. If he’s going to make shots like that, maybe it isn’t our night.” Spinuzza’s big game came while two college coaches were in attendance. So far he has received interest from small schools, but he is in no rush to make a decision on his future. “I want to wait and see

what happens,” Spinuzza said. “I’m trying to enjoy my senior year and after that go from there.” Next up for Spinuzza and the Mustangs is a tough test against another set of Mustangs, Morton. Morton enters with a 3-2 record in the league.

“I’m not trying to score a bunch of points. I’m just trying to do what I can to help my team get the win at the end of the game. That’s the main thing. It was just winning the game.” Danny Spinuzza Senior guard

ANNEMARIE CARLSON Westmont Sophomore | Basketball Why Carlson was selected: Carlson scored 18 points to lead all scorers in a 39-33 victory over rival Lisle on Jan. 30. Carlson’s 18-point performance in an Interstate Eight Conference game against Lisle helped the Sentinels snatch a win from the rival Lions.

Lisle was close before you made a shot and hit a couple free throws to extend the lead. What was going through your head late in the game?

This is a relatively young team. How are the girls adjusting to the length and intensity of a varsity season?

I knew that as the game went on and the pressure increased, our team would respond well. As long as we kept talking and remained positive, we would come out on top. I was hoping the team would band together down the

It looked like the team got an offensive rhythm early. Had your coach stressed getting off to a good start? Yes, coach [Mike] McCord said that the first quarter dictates the pace for the rest of the game. We were doing a good job of moving the ball around the perimeter and finding open shooters.

It took some time for us to come together this season, and it showed because it took us some time to get our first win. But I think we are starting to hit our stride and the younger players are beginning to understand what it takes to win on the varsity level.

Downers Grove North’s Milad Abd (top) wrestles at 152 pounds against Champaign Central on Jan. 11. Abd and the Trojans start the postseason Saturday at the Lyons Township regional.

Wrestlers set to start on road to state finals SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA After weeks of watching and cutting weight and months of drilling in practice, high school wrestlers are set to embark on the road to the state finals. This weekend’s regional tournaments signal the start of the individual state series, which culminates with the state tournament Feb. 20 to 22 at the State Farm Center in Champaign.

Downers Grove North Class: 3A Regional: Lyons Township Sectional: Hinsdale Central Outlook: Injuries sidetracked Downers Grove North a little bit this season, leading to an

up-and-down 13-8 dual meet record heading into this weekend’s regional tournament. But with the postseason beginning, the Trojans are as healthy as they have been all season, according to head coach Chris McGrath, and the they seem primed for a solid postseason run. Nick Bonomo at 170 pounds, Pat Walker at 106, Milad Abd at 152 and Mike Gastaldello at 160 all had successful regular seasons and will be tough outs in the postseason tournaments. As a team, North has been tested by a tournament schedule that included Hinsdale Central’s Whitlatch and Palatine’s Berman tourneys,

both among the best in the state. Bonomo has a pair of tourney titles to his credit (Palatine and Batavia) as well as a runner-up showing at the Whitlatch and a third place medal from the Conant invite at the beginning of the season. Walker won at Batavia and was third at both Hinsdale Central and Palatine.

Downers Grove South Class: 3A Regional: Lyons Township Sectional: Hinsdale Central Outlook: Downers Grove South senior Mike Hobs leads the Mustangs into 3A regional action. The 285-pounder is one of the best in the state in

Class 3A, and he could square off against Hinsdale Central’s Brian Allen, the defending state champion who he lost to earlier this season, at the regional. Additionally, sophomore Tyree Johnson and junior Joe Nugent are both ranked at 132 pounds by illinoismatmen.com, though Johnson will move up to 138 for the postseason. Hobbs and Nugent were both titleists at the Sycamore invite in early January in what was the final invite on the Mustangs’ schedule. Trips to Hinsdale Central’s Whitlatch invite and a tournament in Iowa have also pitted South against some stiff competition this season.

Westmont Class: 1A Regional: Lisle Sectional: Plano Outlook: Westmont sophomore Anthony Griffiths has been a welcome surprise in the 285 pound weight class and will lead the Sentinels into the 1A regional meet. Westmont will face some familiar foes come the postseason, as Lisle and IC Catholic, both teams the Sentinels faced during the regular season, will be at the regional. While the Sentinels have been up and down during the regular season, they faced tough competition in the Interstate Eight Conference and were challenged at the DeKalb dual team invite during the season.

Arkush says defense still wins titles The NFL season is indeed a marathon rather than a sprint, but with the Seahawks’ 43-8 rout of the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII now in the books, another grueling season and race are over. What did we learn, and where do we go from here? It seems to me the most emphatic lesson to take from 2013 is that, as entertaining and exciting as wide open offenses and NFL passing attacks can be, defense and ground games still win championships. Can there be any doubt after Denver’s pathetic performance on the game’s biggest stage, and how thoroughly they dominated the Patriots in the AFC title game, that the three best teams in the NFL this year were Seattle, San Francisco and Carolina? Could it be mere coincidence that those three clubs all finished in the bottom tier of NFL passing offenses, but were the three best defenses in the league and owned among the league’s best running games?

contend in the NFL with a big-time offense and an “adequate” defense. I believe the Seahawks and Broncos Hub Arkush just proved that is not the case. Another hot-button topic to come out of this Super Bowl is the question of whether or not the “cold weather” Is it also just a fluke that each of those Super Bowl worked and can work clubs possess one of the NFL’s brightest again in the future.

tion gets kicked down the road a bit. What will the next big topic be for the NFL’s owners and fans? Keep your eyes on St. Louis and Los Angeles. While it absolutely escapes me why the NFL owners are so determined to put a team back in L.A. when two have already failed and left, and the TV ratings in the market improve markedly when there is no club there, they are. It was reported Jan. 29, the St. Louis Rams owner and billionaire real estate developer Stan Kroenke recently purchased 60 acres of land in the L.A. market, and it is no secret he continues to be frustrated by the refusal of the folks in St. Louis to update the stadium there or build a new one. It could just be that Kroenke found a deal on land he couldn’t pass up. Or it could be that he will petition the league this spring to allow him to finally build a stadium in L.A. and move the Rams back to L.A. Kroenke’s not saying, but it’s a story we’ll watch closely.

were on stage with Goodell to present the award. Tillman’s signature accomplishment off the field is the founding – along with his wife, Jacqueline – of the Cornerstone Foundation. Their goal is to support the families of children suffering from serious and sometimes fatal illnesses, as their daughter Tiana did, requiring a heart transplant at the age of 3 ½ months. The Tillmans raised more than $1 million and supported more than 300 families in the Chicago area. The NFL presented Tillman’s other accomplishments in the following statement: “Tillman and his wife, Jackie, also contribute their time and resources to local, national and international organizations outside of the Cornerstone Foundation. The Tillmans have helped build a school in Cambodia, sponsored children through the Urban Promise program in Camden, New Jersey, and have purchased and donated over 700 tickets to Bears home games since

2008 through the Bears Home Team Hand-Off program. Tillman is also an avid supporter of our military, and has participated in a USO tour to Iraq, volunteered with the USO of Illinois on Thanksgiving to serve meals to local troops and provided soldiers with tickets to games at Soldier Field during the 2013 season.” While the award was certainly the high point of Tillman’s career, it is unclear what the Bears interest is in resigning Tillman to continue to play cornerback in Chicago. Tillman recently offered a promise to Bears fans that he will eventually retire as a Chicago Bear but also made it clear he is not ready to retire yet. He indicated he is on very good terms with Phil Emery and Marc Trestman, but he really has no idea yet what their level of interest is in his returning. Wherever “Peanut” lands in 2014, this honor and evening were a tremendous moment for Tillman and Chicago Bears fans.

NEW YORK – While it remains unclear whether or not Charles “Peanut” Tillman, who is an unrestricted free agent, will return to the Chicago Bears in 2014, there is no question he will be forever linked with Bears all-time great Walter Payton. Tillman was named the 2013 winner of the Walter Payton NFL Man Of The Year Award Saturday night on the eve of Super Bowl XLVIII at a special awards ceremony in New York. The award has been given annually to an NFL player who excels both on the field and off the field with his volunteerism and philanthropy. Payton won the award in 1977 when it was the NFL Man Of The Year Award. It was then renamed in his honor after his passing in 1999. Tillman was selected over fellow finalists Thomas Davis of the Carolina Panthers and Arizona’s Jay Feely. Each season the 32 NFL teams

choose one nominee to represent their club and the three finalists and eventual winner from the 32 nominees are selected by a panel of judges, which includes NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Payton’s widow Connie Payton, the previous year’s winner who this year was Matt Birk and a number of other retired players. Each of the 32 nominees receives a donation of $1,000 in their names to the charity of their choice, and the winner gets an additional donation of $25,000. In accepting the award, Tillman said “I’m grateful to be the recipient of such a prestigious award. Walter Payton’s legacy continues to be a beacon of service and giving, and I’m just trying to do my small part. I don’t think any of the finalists do what they do to get recognition, but we do it because we are passionate about helping others.” The award has been given since 1970. Tillman joins Payton, Dave Duerson, Mike Singletary and Jim Flanigan as the only Bears to win it. Walter’s children Brittney and Jarrett

The Unresolved Thyroid Are You Sufering With? • Fatigue • Weight Gain • Poor Sleep • Poor Digestion

Do you have thyroid symptoms but were told that you don’t have a thyroid problem? …you may have been mis-diagnosed. If you are confused and frustrated due to persistent thyroid symptoms, perhaps it’s time to take a new approach?

• Dificulty Concentrating

Holistic herapy:

• Poor Memory

Find and manage the underlying cause

• Depression • Weak Immune System

Use natural therapies that work with your body

here are 8 major thyroid patterns.

• Cold Hands and Feet • Dry Skin

What pattern are you?

• Thinning Hair • Heart Palpitations • Nervousness • Inner Trembling • Increased Pulse Rate • Protruding Eyes

Medications only treat 2 of the 8 patterns. Finding out your thyroid pattern is essential for thyroid symptom relief and managing the underlying cause. Did you know that up to 90% of all thyroid conditions are actually primary autoimmune imbalances. If you do not address the underlying immune imbalance, you may NEVER improve.
