because it will benefit all of them as a whole,” she said. “Most of the kids in the focus group were in the general-education classes. And a lot of them were older kids, so they had a really good insight for what would bring all the kids together.” She said the softer, rubber surface will be a benefit for her daughter Teagan, who has Down syndrome. “Anything that is going to keep her on pace with her peers is going to be a benefit for her socially and physically,” she said. Another Hillcrest parent,

Pam Baker, said the playground could make a world of difference for her daughter Camee, who has cerebral palsy. “I know that Camee has difficulty doing things the other kids do, but cognitively, she’s 100 percent,” she said. “So she recognizes the differences of what’s going on. The excitement on her face when I showed her the plans of what could be blew my mind. I didn’t realize it was an issue, and the thought of a new playground opened up a whole new world for her.” Hillcrest is home to the dis-

That makes it an especially appropriate place for the village’s first inclusive playground, Schuh added.

cepting tax-deductible donations to build the new $450,000 playground. She filed the paperwork to become a 501c3 nonprofit organization named Dream Build Play this spring. She said there are no comparable playgrounds within a 20 mile radius, the closest being in Burr Ridge. However, the Burr Ridge playground does not have the wheelchair swing and other features included in the Hillcrest plan. She said the Hillcrest playground will be a safe place for children with physical limitations from all over the area to play. Following the completion of this project, she hopes to use her newly formed nonprofit to design and build accessible playgrounds at all District 58 schools. Now, her most pressing goal is to finish the project before Owen and his friends finish at Hillcrest and move on to junior high. Until then, Owen and children with physical limitations often feel left out during recess. “He can only stay on the blacktop,” she said. “And his friends don’t want to stay on the blacktop, so he’s a little bit isolated. He doesn’t get to do a lot.” Controller James Popernik said the plan is to have the proposal on the June board agenda for approval. It would completely replace the existing Hillcrest playground, and add a smaller satellite playground for kindergartners.

DOWNERS GROVE – On Owen Chaidez’ first day of school, playground woodchips became stuck in his wheelchair, and he was unable to move. His friends tried without success to free the wheels, but when the bell rang, he was left by himself. “I wanted to find a way [so] that would never happen again,” his mom, Margaret Chaidez said. In the year and a half since, Chaidez has organized a drive to raise funds to build an inclusive, accessible playground at Hillcrest Elementary School to be enjoyed equally by students with physical limitation and by those without. It would feature a recycled rubber surface instead of woodchips along with double-wide ramps and connected structures. The plans also include a relaxation station for quiet reflection or reading and a wheelchair swing. Some of the design ideas like connected structures came following focus group interviews with students and teachers. “The kids all wanted everything to be connected so there was a better sense of community,” Chaidez said. Her son is especially excited about the wheelchair swing. “My son has always wanted to fly, and now he will have that opportunity in his wheelchair,” she said. Lisa Schuh has children in both special- and general-education classes at Hillcrest, and she said the focus groups allowed for a design to suit the entire student population. “I think all the kids are generally excited about it

DOWNERS GROVE VILLAGE BOARD | 3 THINGS TO KNOW

Salt storage increases, membership extensions highlight meeting By ED MCMENAMIN emcmenamin@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – The village council heard a proposal for a larger road salt storage dome, voted to continue its membership in the DuPage Mayors and Management Conference and heard about CompuSystems plans to move its corporate headquarters to Downers Grove at the regular meeting May 20.

1. New dome would increase road salt storage by 250 percent

Downers Grove Public Works Director Nan Newlon presented the low bid from Dome Corporation of North America for a $462,780 road salt storage facility. The new dome would hold 6,700 tons of road salt, a substantial increase over the 2,500-ton storage capacity of the current dome, which would be demolished. “Expanding the existing salt dome will eliminate salt deliveries made during snow

season in all but the most severe winter events and reduce future road salt costs,” she said. “This will allow us to purchase all the salt we are anticipated to be able to use by October of each year, instead of how we currently do.” Currently, the village fills the dome with as much salt as it will hold and then awaits future deliveries once it needs to restock. “Which can be problematic, like we had this winter when the winter froze and barge traffic wasn’t able to reach the salt resupplies,” he said. The village typically buys about 4,800 tons of salt each year. The item will appear on an upcoming agenda for voting.

2. DuPage Mayors and Managers Conference membership extended

The council voted 5-1 to extend the village’s membership in the DuPage Mayors and Managers Conference for another year, despite skepticism about the effectiveness

of the organization. The annual membership costs $36,776.40, and puts the village in an organization representing about 35 municipalities and one million residents. “I continue to have reservations about DMMC,” said Commissioner Bob Barnett, who cast the lone “no” vote. “Both the organization and its effectiveness [make me question] whether or not it’s the most wise use of our resources, both in terms of dollars and in personnel and staff time. “I know this is an ongoing trial ... [hopefully] they end up a better organization than they were in the past.” Many commissioners referenced obliquely to dissatisfaction regarding a recent legislative position taken by the conference. It initially backed a plan this month extending the state income tax increase, only to reverse the decision and take a neutral position. “I hope that under its new and incoming leadership it will

not take any such positions in the future,” Commissioner David Olsen said. “Given all that, I still think it is very valuable to work both formally and informally with other municipalities in DuPage County.” Olsen and other commissioners expressed optimism the organization is improving its effectiveness and cited the increased involvement of Mayor Martin Tully and Village Manager David Fieldman as being partial causes of the improvement.

3. CompuSystems plans to move its headquarters to Downers Grove

Downers Grove Economic Development Corporation President and CEO Michael Cassa presented the council with an agreement which would reduce half of CompuSystems building permit fees when it moves its headquarters from Broadview to 2651 Warrenville Road. The reduction would save the business about $15,000. The

Warrenville Road space currently is vacant, according to village documents. “Since 1976, CompuSystems, Inc. has been a leader in providing registration, data management and lead retrieval services to the exposition industry,” staff wrote in its memo to the council. CompuSystems is a privately held company with more than 100 clients, representing nearly 200 trade shows annually, according to village staff. The council likely will vote on the agreement at an upcoming meeting. “It’s terrific news, bringing another high-quality corporate headquarters to Downers Grove,” Tully said. “Keep them coming.” The agreement would require the business to begin its corporate operations on the property by Dec. 1 and use the property for a minimum of five years. If CompuSystems would fail to do so, it would agree to return the $15,000 to the village.

Ask Dr. Webster

KEEP BREATH FRESH Q: Do you have any tips for keeping breath fresh? A: The best tips are to visit your dentist regularly and keep up a rigorous home care program of brushing and flossing. It’s just natural that bacteria exist in the mouth and they can produce sulfur compounds that don’t smell great. So here are some tips to keep in mind: • Bad habits, like smoking or chewing tobacco, can make your breath sour. • Drink lots of water. When you are well hydrated you will generate copious amounts of saliva, which helps keep your mouth clean by washing away excess bacteria. • Brush your tongue as well as your teeth. The bacteria that causes bad breath can collect on the back of your tongue. • Medical conditions can also contribute to bad breath. Among those conditions are a sinus infection, an abdominal problem like irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes or a kidney ailment. • Be careful, too, about an over-reliance on mouth rinses to address a bad breath problem. While a rinse may temporarily freshen your breath, it may just be masking an underlying problem that your dentist should be treating. • Morning breath, by the way, is a somewhat different issue. Saliva production slows when we are asleep and sour breath in the morning is far more common than a generally persistent bad breath problem. Talk with your dentist about ways to keep your breath fresh.

DOWNERS GROVE – The District 99 Education Foundation awarded nearly $24,000 in grants to North High School and South High School in Downers Grove. The grant recipients were recognized May 12 by the District 99 Board of Education. “There are a number of exciting projects that our high school teachers have planned for their students, and the Foundation is pleased to provide the funding they need to implement their creative ideas,” said District 99 Education Foundation President Eric Olson, a graduate of South High who resides in Downers Grove. ■ Some of the projects the foundation is funding include: ■ VEX Robotics kits to foster the understanding of how to design, build and program robots in engineering classes ■ Vertical hydroponic window farms for science classes ■ Inventor’s kits allowing

students to conduct authentic types of science experiments and build electronic devices from scratch ■ Equipment and live materials for students to use in labs about the nervous system for anatomy and physiology classes Each year, the foundation accepts grant requests from District 99 teachers who want to make the classroom environment more enriching and challenging to students but require support beyond the district’s regular budget, according to a press release. A grant committee reviews and considers each application and then determines the final award recipients. The District 99 Education Foundation provides financial assistance for District 99 students and staff in support of innovative curriculum and technologies that fall outside of traditional public funding.

D-58 mulls expanding to full-day kindergarten

Herrick Middle School eighth-grader Nafisa Asad takes her turn in a minispelling bee. Three students who will represent Cook, DuPage and Will counties at the National Spelling Bee finals in Washington, D.C., received a send off May 20 at ComEd’s Commercial Center in Oak Brook.

DOWNERS GROVE – School District 58 is exploring the idea of full-day kindergarten, though possible implementation is at least two school years away, according to district administrators. Several district kindergarten teachers updated the school board this month on the increasing academic demands placed on kindergartners and the inadequate amount of time the current half-day program affords for instruction. “The level of leaning expected at the 5-year-old level has really increased in the last 20 years,” said Dr. Matt Rich, District 58 assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. “Now with the curricular expectations, it’s such a different learning experience.” Trying to fit today’s kindergarten curriculum into a half day is like “trying to stuff 20 pounds into a five pound bag,” he said. “That being said, our kindergarten teachers really do a remarkable job giving kids experiences in that halfday program.” Currently, the district offers families both morning or afternoon half-day kindergarten programs. If the district expanded to offer a full-day class, Rich said law would require them to continue offering the

half-day option as well. Teachers at the May 12 meeting said the rushed schedule leaves no time for students to contemplate what they learned that day, make connections and just comprehend how to learn in general. Teachers cover reading, math, science, handwriting, art, story time, library time, technology and social studies all in the half-day program. “With all those expectations, we have lost the time for the fundamentals of learning,” Fairmount Elementary School teacher Barb Potocki said. The district began re searching the full-day option, which currently is offered by several surrounding districts, last spring at the request of teachers. Rich said staff and administration likely will update the board again next fall. “It’s something parents consistently talk about, and this is the first time we have really done some research and presented that this is a consideration for us as we move forward,” he said. “We did some national-level research to see what programs (other districts are) doing and why they’re doing them. We did local surveys and talked to districts around us. “This is not something we’re the first mover on in any way. In this, we are looking and observing and learning from others.”

WOODRIDGE – After gathering community feedback, the village of Woodridge and Woodridge Park District recently pitched a master plan for the redevelopment of the Town Centre. Both entities hosted a community workshop Thursday, giving residents a look into the plan officials said will turn the Town Centre into a campus-like, community focal point which would “increase the quality of life among residents” and the village’s “attractiveness within the Chicago region.” Officials hired developer Houseal Lavigne and Associates to formulate the plan, and over the past year, both the village and Park District hosted a number of community meetings and open houses to collect input on what residents hoped to see in the

Town Centre. Thursday’s meeting included, for the first time, cost estimates of the proposed redevelopment. Houseal Lavigne has placed a preliminary price tag of $8.5 million if the master plan and each of its proposed projects are executed. Woodridge Village spokesman Jack Knight said a timeline as to when the Woodridge Village Board and Woodridge Park District Board could bring the plan to a vote still is unknown. The master plan was largely formed by pulling features residents and village and Park District staff recommended after viewing three preliminary concept plans during an open house in March, according to the village. The Town Centre is located near Woodridge and Center drives and includes the following existing facilities: Village Hall, Woodridge Library, the

In the past, patients suffering from low back pain or disc problems were often given pain medication and instructed to refrain from physical activities. They were then generally referred to physical therapy and sometimes pain management for injections, and when that failed, were faced with the decision to undergo risky spinal surgery. Due to advancements in medicine and technology, those are no longer the only available options.

Irish Pub owner Phil Cullen. It was at the bar’s Aurora location where the idea was launched. Will manages the Aurora bar, which has an adjacent pizzeria. Oftentimes delivery pizza customers would ask if they could add booze from the bar to the delivery. “At the time, he said ‘no, we can’t,’ � Alex said, “but there should be an app for that.� After doing some research and not seeing any similar apps already in existence, the two brothers decided to develop their own. Users of the app pay for the delivery and a small charge to DrinkFly for facilitating the sale The combined delivery and DrinkFly charge is $6. The liquor store is not charged for the service, he said. He said he sees variety of scenario’s where the app can come in handy, and it can help reduce drunken driving. That’s not to mention Chicago winters.

“If I’m watching the Bears or I’m watching the Blackhawks and I’m having people over and we run out of alcohol, who’s going to do the beer run?� he said. “Nobody wants to do it.� He said he sees a corporate market as well. “Corporations sometimes will send alcohol, champagne to celebrate closing a deal or to say thanks for being a customer of ours,� he said. He added BYOB restaurants as another potential submarket for the app. The brothers hope to expand to suburban liquor stores soon and then raise money for national expansion, Alex said. They currently have a street team to market the app directly to potential customers in Chicago. “Everybody is super receptive,� he said. “And people were like ‘I thought of that a year ago.’ “It seems like it’s everyone’s idea that we actually ex-

Neighbors helping neighbors in DuPage County communities Great storms recently blew through, and I couldn’t help but think about the figurative storms which often blow through people’s lives: health emergencies, job loss, death of a spouse, mental illness, divorce. Some families have all the resources they need to weather the storms of life. Their houses are built on strong COMMUNITY foundations, their financial VOICE future isn’t based on the next Melissa paycheck, they have a comTravis prehensive health insurance policy covering everything from a bout with the flu to a full-blown mental health crisis. But other families don’t have these resources to help see them through a crisis – this is where organizations like People’s Resource Center can help fill the gap. Built on a model of neighbors helping neighbors, People’s Resource Center has offered a variety of programs to stabilize DuPage County families caught in the storms of life. A visit to our food pantries can ease the strain of a too-tight budget. PRC’s clothes closet can help a mother make sure her children have coats and hats to face the cold. A computer class may give an unemployed worker an edge in finding employment, and an art class may offer a much-needed respite in a chaotic day. Neighbors truly are helping neighbors at the People’s Resource Center. Last year, 1,900 volunteers provided the bulk of service delivery. Thousands of donations from people all over DuPage support the myriad programs we offer, and congregations, service organizations, community groups and other social service organizations are partnering with People’s Resource Center to assist our neighbors in need. Because of this strong network, DuPage County and its nearly one million residents can face the storms of life knowing our neighbors will help us when we are tested; that we are a community of caring, ready to roll up our sleeves and help our neighbors in need. Helping one another not only is the right thing to do, but it is what our community and our neighbors do each day. I’m proud to call DuPage County home – I hope you are too.

Thumbs up to the Downers Grove Police Department for continuing to honor the memory of a fallen fellow officer. On May 15, police, local officials and residents gathered at First Presbyterian Church for the annual Richard Barth memorial ceremony, paying respects to the only Downers Grove police officer killed in the line of duty. Good luck to Downers Grove South graduate Maritza Cabrera, who moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. Cabrera starred in several plays and musicals in the area before realizing in 2012 she needed to head west to fully achieve her dream. She now is among the final candidates vying for a shot on “The Reel Deal,” which pairs up-and-coming actors with celebrity mentors.

I have to sound off about Judge Ann Finley Collins from Maybrook Courthouse. Judge Collins gave an electronic monitor and an I-bond to a twin ice pick-wielding lunatic. This man was trying to break in to a Riverside home to kill the resident. When Riverside police arrived, he threatened to kill them, too. Our outstanding police chased, tasered and arrested the psychopath and put our neighborhood at peace just to find out Judge Collins felt he was better off back out there so he could finish what he was going to do. Maybe judge Collins should be at home making a cake or cleaning the toilet. Or, if she’s into power and uniforms, consider being a crossing guard – nice hat, a vest and that cool paddle. Society would be safer with her off the bench and sitting on one reading a book. This was a slap in the face to Riverside’s outstanding police department and residents. Maybe Judge Collins should get an electronic monitor, community service and five years probation and, of course, lose her job. This is one woman who clearly shouldn’t be in any position of power.

People volunteer to get arrested May 21 in Oak Brook while participating in the McDonald’s protest.

SD • Wednesday, May 28, 2014 • mysuburbanlife.com • Suburban Life

OAK BROOK – The beating of drums and chants of “Raise up, it’s time to raise up” and “I’m fed up, I can’t take it no more” echoed May 21 past Hamburger University in Oak Brook as hundreds of protesters assembled and called for a significant pay raise. Fed up with low salaries for quick-service restaurant employees, protesters were urging for a pay increase to $15 an hour, up from an average salary of about $8 an hour. “Give people a fair living wage, it doesn’t need to be more sophisticated than that,” said Service Employees International Union Local 73 Assistant Division Director Tim Ball. “McDonald’s makes billions upon billions of dollars … they can afford to have a loyal staff.” Unions member Deana Rutherford of Chicago added “no one who works should have to work in poverty.”

She said McDonald’s “criminally low wages” cost taxpayers, who in turn fund those employees’ public assistance compensation. Shortly after 1 p.m. May 21, several protesters associated with Service Employees International Union were arrested for criminal trespassing to property after entering the McDonald’s Campus at Jorie Boulevard and Kroc Drive, according to the Oak Brook Police Department. Police said about 1:45 p.m. May 21, protesters began marching further onto McDonald’s property, resulting in 138 people being arrested and charged with an ordinance violation of criminal trespass. Throughout the afternoon, the Oak Brook Police Department was on the scene along with mutual aid from surrounding departments as several roads were closed off to accommodate protesters. Protests also continued

Local Special Olympians gear up for national games By ED MCMENAMIN emcmenamin@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – When Christina Schutz was asked if she’s excited for her week at the 2014 Special Olympics National Games, she responded without pause saying how many days away it is. “I keep looking at the website,” the 27-year-old Downers Grove South alumna said. “I love everything – the friends, competition – everything about the Special Olympics.” Schutz of Darien is 5-foot9 and utilizes here height to serve on her local volleyball team. She’ll take those skills to New Jersey to meet and compete with 2,500 athletes in a variety of sports beginning June 15 at the USA Games. When she’s not playing volleyball, you can find Schutz working at Jewel or going out to the movies with friends, she said. But serving a strike right

Continued from page 13 Thursday morning during the McDonald’s annual shareholders’ meeting. Union members boarded 17 buses early Thursday morning as fellow members marched south on Jorie Boulevard from Kensington Road, stopping at Kroc Drive. About 7:45 a.m. Thursday, demonstrators moved north on Jorie Boulevard toward Ronald Lane, assembled for a short time, then dispersed at 8:30 a.m., according to police No arrests were made Thursday, according to police. McDonald’s shareholders’ meeting was closed to the media Thursday but was available to the public via webcast. During the meet-

over the net, that’s her favorite. She also is excited for the sightseeing in New York which will be part of her trip, all paid for by the Special Olympics. Her parents also plan to make the trip. “It’s been a thrill to know she’s having this opportunity, and having the freedom to be on her own for the week – with some adult supervision,” her mom Carol said. “It’s a great opportunity, I’m very excited.” Schutz is not the only one

from the area who will compete this June in New Jersey. Downers Grove 32-yearold Jeff Osowski placed first in his golf flight at both state and regional Special Olympics, but this will mark his first time at the national competition. “It’s been spectacular,” Ray, his father, said. “He’s participated in Special Olympics competitions in various different sports – volleyball, basketball, golf and bowling. The Special Olympics is spectacular because it gives Jeff the opportunity to experience the highs and lows of competition.” Despite the long brutal winter, his swing still should be in line – he and his father Ray went to the Golf Dome at least once a week to hit some balls, when Jeff wasn’t working one of his two jobs or rooting for the White Sox. Now in the spring, he can play as often as he can. “I keep practicing like every day,” he said.

ing, president and CEO Don Thompson said McDonald’s often is a first job for several entering the workforce. He said in company owned U.S. restaurants, which is a “microcosm of the overall McDonald’s landscape,” 33 percent of employees are ages 16 through 19, nearly 60 percent are 24 years of age or younger and 70 percent work part-time. Thompson said he believes McDonald’s provides “more opportunity than any place” he’s seen, as some crew members have eventually gone on to become supervisors and even owners of their own franchises. “We’ve had people that have been [protesting] outside, and we respect the fact that they want to challenge wages,” Thompson said during the annual meeting. “We continue to believe

that we pay fair and competitive wages, and we provide opportunity and we provide job opportunities and training for those entering the work force.” Ball disagreed, adding it’s not the conditions of the restaurant, it’s because there is no stability with employee work shifts. “You can’t live a life,” Ball said. “You have to live a life by the whim of the manager or the owner.” Similar protests and rallies have taken place over the past couple years with varying results. On May 15, McDonald’s released a statement respecting it’s employees’ right to protest: “We respect everyone’s right to voice an opinion. McDonald’s respects our employees’ right to voice their opinions and to protest lawfully and peacefully.”

DOWNERS GROVE – Three coaches from South High School in Downers Grove have received 2014 national coaching awards from the National Speech & Debate Association, the speech and debate honor society. Receiving Diamond Awards this year are Christopher Blum, Jan Heiteen and Justin Matkovich. Blum works in the school library, and Matkovich is an English teacher. Heiteen is a retired English teacher from South High and continues to coach students. “South High students are renowned for excelling in speech competitions, and it’s no surprise that our coaches have a lot to do with their success,” South High Principal Stephan Bild said in a press release. “We are very proud of the high-quality caliber of our coaches and fortunate that our students can learn from their expertise.”

The Diamond Award recognizes a professional career combining excellence and longevity, and points are awarded in part based on the number of students coached. This is Heiteen’s seventh Diamond Award, which she reached after earning more than 19,000 coaching points. Since its founding in 1925, the NFL only has awarded 18 seventh diamonds. The award is Blum’s second diamond and Matkovich’s first diamond award. On June 20, all three coaches will be recognized by the NFL at its national tournament. Students will receive nearly $200,000 in college scholarships as well compete at the tournament, which draws more than 5,000 students, coaches and parents from across the nation each year.

TAX TIPS

Legislators seek voter input on tax increase extension SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA

by

JUDI STRAUSS, E.A.

TAXES ARE NOT ON VACATION THIS SUMMER!

Some of the questions we get are:

• What happens with taxes when I retire? • Do I need to pay Estimated Tax?

• Should I/we change our withholding?

• What happens when I sell stock, a mutual fund, land - or a rental property?

• Why did I get a letter/notice from the IRS or the State of IL?

• Do I need to take a required distribution from my IRA this year?

State Rep. Ron Sandack, R-Downers Grove, and Rep. Dennis Reboletti, R-Elmhurst, are part of a group of House and Senate Republicans who introduced legislation May 20 which would put a statewide advisory referendum on the November ballot asking voters whether or not the 5 percent temporary income tax increase should become permanent. “A number of issues are expected to be placed on the

ballot in November as a way to gauge public sentiment,” said Reboletti, whose district includes parts of Addison and Wood Dale, in a news release. “The proposal we are introducing today would ask the voters to decide whether or not the 5 percent temporary income tax increase should be made permanent. “Extending the income tax increase hits residents and small employers directly in the pocketbook. They deserve the opportunity to weigh in on the decision.”

All Republicans in the House and Senate oppose raising the income tax because “it does nothing to help the 550,000 unemployed Illinoisans to find work,” the release stated. As of April 2014, Illinois’ unemployment rate of 7.9 percent is the second-worst jobless rate among the 50 states, according to the release. By the time the 2011 income tax increase is set to expire in January 2015, it will have taken more than $31 billion from the pockets of working families and small businesses, the

release stated. “This nonbinding advisory referendum would allow us to poll the voters about how they feel about making the temporary tax increase permanent,” Sandack said. “The increased taxes have cost the average family of four making around $50,000 about $1,000 annually. They have had to make sacrifices on necessities for their families. Before any vote is taken to extend or make the temporary tax permanent, the voters should have their voices heard.”

Q-BBQ fires up big flavor in La Grange

LA GRANGE – As we approached the black awnings of the corner restaurant, it was no surprise our mouths began watering when Q-BBQ’s old-fashioned smokehouse aroma wafted our way. We stepped inside and were greeted by a hostess at a wooden counter with three overhanging chalkboards outlining the restaurant’s specials, platters, sandwiches, salads and sides, extending from brisket and pork to smoked turkey, chicken, ribs and more. My companion and I initially were puzzled by some of the options, as neither of us had ever experienced Q before. When the hostess saw our hesitation, she immediately asked if this was our first visit, offered us free samples of the Brisket Burnt Ends, and then pointed out a few of her personal favorite dishes. After the sample, my mind was made up, and I selected the Brisket Burnt Ends sandwich served Q-Style, which calls for topping it with Q-Slaw, mozzarella cheese and sweet and spicy aioli. The sandwiches, along with two hush puppies, include your choice of a side. For me, it was an order of Spicy Fries. My fellow diner ordered the Texas Chopped Brisket sandwich, prepared Q-Style with Q-Slaw, crumbled bleu cheese and Carolina sauce. Once we’d ordered, we found our table and enjoyed the anticipation. In about 10 minutes, the massive culinary concoctions arrived. Before shamelessly stuffing our faces – an act which my companion rationalized as “if it’s not messy, it’s not barbecue” – we each grabbed handfuls of napkins and then dug in. The Q-Slaw and sweetand-spicy sauce on top of the Brisket Burnt Ends gave my sandwich a perfect mix of the barbecue flavor and Southern taste I’d been looking for. My Spicy Fries were served

dining district, offers patrons a tantalizing culinary geography lesson of all things barbecue. Michael LaPidus, the owner, notes on the website that the eatery is fueled by “regional inspirations – from the backwoods of the Carolinas, to the meat markets of Texas, to the hole-in-the-walls of Memphis. In everything from our smoked meats (cooked low and slow for up to 22 hours), to our homemade sauces and from scratch sides, we give our own brand of culinary flare and distinct flavor to America’s original comfort food.” Overall, Q-BBQ was more than just delicious food. From its enthusiastic, helpful staff to its relaxed yet welcoming atmosphere, those black awnings are not something you’ll want to pass by. And although from the outside, we didn’t anticipate a casual, order-atthe-counter type restaurant, both my companion and I left Q-BBQ happily satisfied and already planning to return.

Soccer success story By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com

DOWNERS GROVE – Gianna Marconi and Mary Doro have certainly left their mark at Downers Grove North. The soccer co-captains and their six senior teammates have set a new standard for future teams to aim for. After finishing the 2013 season with a .500 record, this year’s senior-led squad nearly doubled the win total. The seniors played a big role in setting the tone this season. “We’re a senior team,” Marconi said. “We have eight seniors, which is kind of unusual for North, so we have a lot of experience. … We have a lot of returning varsity people and people like Sarah Costello and Mary Rounce who didn’t

Costello and Rounce were on varsity their freshman year and returned to the squad after choosing not to play for North this past spring. Not only did the Trojans enjoy a banner season, but they did so against a much tougher schedule. They added nonconference games against Wheaton North and Glenbard

East in addition to playing in the PepsiCo Showdown tournament, one of the top tournaments in the state. North tied against Wheaton North and Glenbard East and faced off against New Trier, a potential state title-winning team, as part of the Showdown. They also won the West Chicago tournament.

Seniors lead Downers Grove North to breakthrough season “It wasn’t like we improved because we changed the schedule,” head coach Bob Calder said. “The schedule change was we picked up Glenbard East, the No. 4 seed in our sectional, Wheaton North, who is always very good, and we picked up four teams in the PepsiCo Showdown. “We added competitive teams and played a lot of competitive games.” Those games came in addition to playing a grueling schedule in the West Suburban Silver conference. The Trojans took WSS winner Lyons Township to overtime and penalty kicks before losing and lost 1-0 against a talented Hinsdale Central team. “This year, especially compared to last year, a big differ-

ence is we can score the ball,” Calder said. “You can’t win if you don’t score, and we really don’t give up a lot. We are very sound defensively.” North’s season came to a close with a 2-0 loss Friday against Benet in a regional championship game, but it did little to tarnish the shine of the season or the legacy of the senior group. “I’m immensely proud of this team,” Doro said. “This has by far been my favorite season. I’m proud of what we accomplished. “These past couple years we’ve built the team. We have incoming freshmen that are really good, and our freshmen team won conference so they’re really good. So hopefully [the team] just continues to improve.”

DG North, South earn multiple medals By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com CHARLESTON – Even though she only is in high school, Michaela Hackbarth already has learned lessons which will serve her well throughout her life, one being putting in hard work yields positive results in the end. The Downers Grove South sophomore’s hard work led to a second-place finish in the 800-meter run at the Class 3A state track meet Saturday at Eastern Illinois. “It’s just been a lot of hard work every practice and every workout,” said Hackbarth, who clocked a time of 2:13.0. “Every workout, just doing the work that coach gives me.” Hackbarth was part of the 4x200 and 4x800 relays that made it to state this past year, earning a state medal with the 4x200 that placed eighth. Her showing at state this year was a step in the right direction, and with two more years of track ahead of her, she is hoping for even more success in the future. “I’m really happy with my day,” said Hackbarth, who also made it to state in the 400. “I’ll keep working hard, and next year hopefully I can do even better.” South’s Abby Kargol also enjoyed her state meet. She finished fifth in the 3,200 with a time of 10:50.04 but ran one of the best races of her life. “I set my personal record by a lot, and I set a new school record,” the senior said. At the start of the race Kargol was surrounded by runners in the middle of the pack but never lost sight of the Glenbard West duo of Madeline Perez and Linsday Graham, who set the pace in the race and finished 1-2. “I figured they’d take me to

Hackbarth finished second in the race. a good time, so I set my sights on them,” Kargol said. “This feels incredible. I’ve been training all year for this.” Downers Grove North kept a tradition alive and well as the 4x800 relay team of Emma Moravec, Margaret Schaub, Zayna Jan and Stephanie Urbancik finished fourth with a time of 9:14.16. It was the fifth year in a row North’s 4x800 earned a state medal. Urbancik was part of the past four 4x800 squads, including the 2011 team who won state with a time of 9:09.61. Jan was part of the quartet placing

JOE BECHT

Baseball teams in the area are heading to the Class 3A and 4A postseason with the ultimate goal of making it to the state finals June 13 and 14 at Joliet’s Silver Cross Field. Here’s the outlook for Benet, Downers Grove North and Downers Grove South:

Downers Grove South | Senior | Baseball Why Becht was selected: Becht recently entered elite company as he became the fifth player in DGS history to play in more than 100 varsity games. Joe Becht was inserted into Downers Grove South’s varsity baseball lineup as a sophomore in 2012. Two years later, after missing just one game, he played in his 100th varsity game to reach the level ahead of teammate Zac Taylor. In Thursday’s 7-6 win against Hinsdale Central, Becht, the Sears Appliance and Hardware Athlete of the Week, played in his 104th game and talked with Suburban Life sports editor Jason Rossi about his achievement and future at Santa Clara.

What’s the feeling like having played in more than 100 games? It’s actually pretty surreal. It was on my senior day, too, and I was just looking at the field – three years, a hundred games, a lot of memories. It’s pretty surreal that it’s starting to come to an end, but it’s an honor to say I’ve done that.

Regional: Fenwick Sectional: Glenbard South Sectional seed: No. 4 First game: 4:30 p.m. today vs. No. 13 Noble Street Pritzker/No. 20 Little Village Outlook: If nothing else, the

Was it even sweeter to play that 100th game at home on senior day?

It did mean a lot. Coming down and hugging my mom, hugging coach Orel and coach Parpet – they’ve been big influences on me and they gave the opportunities to play, so it meant a lot.

How did the offer from Santa Clara come about?

I went out there for a showcase. They were there and contacted me after. The coach that was there actually went to Northwestern, so he knew my travel coach. So we talked, I went out there and found a spot. It felt right.

Does it feel like you’ve played in so many games?

It doesn’t. Every season, it just feels natural being out here. It’s weird that it’s coming to a close.

Benet Redwings

Redwings certainly have the momentum heading into the playoffs as they won their final eight games of the regular season, including a 17-7 throttling May 21 of Nazareth and a 1-0 win Saturday against a tough Marmion team. A solid pitching staff can carry a team in the postseason, and Benet has a strong starting rotation. Matt Emerick, Pat Peterson, Mike Powers and Chris Whelan all have pitched more than 33 innings this season. Emerick (1.74) and Peterson (1.82) both have sparkling ERAs. Offensively, the Redwings are averaging 6.8 runs a game and are led by the production of Whelan (.446 average, 22 RBIs, 28 runs), Joe Boyle (.398, 28 RBIs, 27 runs), Anthony Rendina (.411, 18 RBIs, 26 runs), Jason Blohm (.358, 17 RBIs, 18 runs), Johnathan

Kruppe (.325, 28 RBIs) and Connor Hickey (.362, 20 runs). If the Redwings win today, No. 7 Fenwick or No. 12 Farragut would await in the regional championship game at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Downers Grove North Trojans

Regional: Downers Grove South Sectional: Oswego Sectional seed: No. 6 First game: 4:30 p.m. Thursday vs. No. 10 Marmion

Outlook: Coming down the stretch of the regular season, the Trojans won only once in their final six West Suburban Silver conference games, but they did find success with wins against Leyden, Willowbrook and Hinsdale South during the final two weeks of the season. The key to playoff success

Downers Grove South Mustangs

Regional: Downers Grove South Sectional: Oswego East Sectional seed: No. 3 First game: 4:30 p.m. today vs. No. 14 Hinsdale South/No. 18 Romeoville

Outlook: In addition to home field advantage, the Mustangs’ recent hot stretch at the plate could come in handy during the playoffs. “I’m excited about that because in the past that’s kind of been our Achilles’ heel a little bit,” South head coach Darren Orel said. “I feel really good about the fact that we’re going into the playoffs swinging the bats pretty well.” The starting pitching of Danny Spinuzza (1.76 ERA), Chris Pedrak (1.26 ERA) and Zac Taylor (2.20 ERA) complements a lineup led by Spinuzza, Taylor, Joe Becht, Ryan Taylor, Joey Engel and Danny Oriente. With a win in the regional semifinal, the Mustangs could face Downers Grove North in the regional title game at 10 a.m. Saturday.
