Mike Baker Elmhurst resident

Other members of the business community shared that opinion and said the six-story garage would not only make downtown more attractive for new business, but would help support existing businesses. “It is difficult to plan a networking business lunch because of the inability to tell a colleague where to park in downtown Elmhurst,” said Julie Miller Sheehan, chairwoman of the board for the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Support for the six-story structure with first-floor retail, no setbacks or loading dock was not shared by all. Other community members testified against the proposal because of how a six-story parking garage might negatively impact the “charm” and “character” of downtown. David Pezza, an Elmhurst resident and business owner, criticized the parking study by Gewalt Hamilton Associates and Houseal Lavigne Associates that the city used to

justify the need for a six-story building. He said the need for parking was overstated in the report and pointed out that the study doesn’t consider the possibility that future development might include on-site parking. He also testified that the reason some stores have closed in the downtown area may not be related to parking, but rather to the types of businesses. Pezza also brought up safety concerns with how the garage will affect traffic and questioned the city’s ownership of the alley. Elmhurst resident Mike Baker also said a four-story parking garage would suffice and adding two more stories would not improve business downtown. “I think the deck has become a crutch used as an excuse for not creating a stronger business and retail environment downtown,” Baker said. He also said the proposed ingress and egress of the garage directs cars leaving the garage to leave Elmhurst instead of bringing them into town. He worried about how the absence of a loading dock might affect traffic when trucks make deliveries. Elmhurst resident Claude Pagacz said the City Council has created a new norm for building height downtown by voting earlier last week to negotiate with Morningside Group regarding its six-story,

testimony discussion By MARI GRIGALIUNAS mgrigaliunas@shawmedia.com ELMHURST – A public hearing on the proposed six-story Addison Parking Deck was extended to a third meeting date during the Jan. 30 installment. But this time, the Zoning and Planning Commission hearing was adjourned midway through a resident’s testimony. “The whole process deteriorates,” said Darrell Whistler, Zoning and Planning Commission chairman. Whistler previously in the meeting asked resident David Pezza to succinctly wrap up his comments after about 20 minutes of testimony. Pezza agreed to submit the rest of his comments in writing but stated he believed he should have the opportunity to present all of his testimony. “You don’t have a right to filibuster,” commissioner Thomas Torcasso said. “You have a right to summarize your points and make them in a reasonable fashion.” Whistler added that the commission has the ability to limit the amount of time people have to testify, but it chooses not to do so. “Right now I question the fundamental fairness of what’s going on here,” Pezza said. At 10:20 p.m., Whistler asked for a 10-minute break during resident Tamara

After the break, the commission decided to continue the meeting Feb. 13, but not before discussing what limits to place on future testimony. “I’m concerned that if we go to another date, then we will have another round of testimony that purports to be expert,” commissioner Susan Rose said. Brenner presented information supporting her assertion that the parking study that the city used to determine the future need for parking downtown based on projected development overstated the need. Brenner, who stated she was a medical doctor, used data from the parking study and city to calculate what she believed to be a more accurate need for 411 parking spaces at most in the downtown. “All of which can be taken care of with a smaller parking garage,” Brenner said. According to the city’s presentation Jan. 23, a four-story version of the garage with first-floor retail would create 460 spaces compared to 690 in

ELMHURST – Members of the Elmhurst business community generally supported a proposed six-story parking garage with first-floor retail on Addison Avenue during a Jan. 30 public hearing. Residents, however, seemed to have more concerns at the Zoning and Planning Commission’s hearing, which will be continued for a second time next week. On Jan. 23, Elmhurst’s Zoning and Planning Commission held a public hearing to consider the city’s request for relief from a zoning ordinance that would allow a 65-foot tall structure without front, rear or interior-side yard setbacks. The city presented its case for a six-story building by comparing a four-story structure to the the proposed 65-foot structure, using data about parking, traffic and sun studies. The six-story building would provide 690 parking spaces versus 460 in the four-story building. Downtown Elmhurst business owners like Anthony Gambino and Willis Johnson offered their support for the six-story parking garage, claiming it would boost business in the area and increase sales tax revenue. “I don’t think we’re in a situation where we’re going to be able to maintain a status quo downtown,” Gambino said. “I think we’re either going to grow and develop or we’re going to shrink.”

“I think the deck has become a crutch used as an excuse for not creating a stronger business and retail environment downtown.”

hometown of Elmhurst even more. “I’m one of those people like Steve [Morley], who just never left because it’s such a great place,” Mallon said. His parents still live in the same Elmhurst house in which he grew up. Mallon explained he and the mayor have been friends since grade school.

“Steve’s [Morley] a big part of it, but Elmhurst as a whole is a huge part of my life and they were there for me when I was gone,” Mallon said. He explained during his tours he received many packages from friends and family, but also schools and organizations. “He’s actually one to rarely accept thanks,” Morley said.

When the mayor called Mallon “a true American hero,” Mallon shook his head slightly. Before presenting the American flag to the mayor, Mallon said he wasn’t there for recognition, but to show his appreciation for Elmhurst. “I’m here to honor Elmhurst and thank Elmhurst,” Mallon said.

Whole Foods announces move to Elmhurst SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA ELMHURST – After months of speculation, Whole Foods will purchase the former Dominick’s location at Route 83 and St. Charles Road. Mayor Steve Morley confirmed Monday what he called “the worst kept secret

in Elmhurst,” announcing Whole Foods will move to Elmhurst. “I think that’s as official as it’s going to get until they actually remodel the store and put the sign on the front,” Morley said. He told the public at Monday’s City Council meeting

that he received an email from Whole Foods at 3 p.m. that day stating they would be announcing their move to Elmhurst. According to a press release from Whole Foods, the new store at 215 S. Route 83, will open in 2015. The company plans to spend the next

year remodeling the location to reflect Elmhurst and Whole Foods. “We are excited to bring the highest quality of natural and organic products to the community of Elmhurst,” said Michael Bashaw, Whole Foods Market Midwest regional president, in the re-

lease. “This store will appeal to the residents of Elmhurst, ranging from the health conscious to the serious food enthusiast.” The Elmhurst Dominick’s closed its doors Dec. 28 as part of the grocery chain’s mass exodus from the Chicago area late last year.

‘Doubtful Abbey’ marks 10 years of mystery theater By MARI GRIGALIUNAS mgrigaliunas@shawmedia.com ELMHURST – Most people wouldn’t expect a cozy community like Elmhurst to be the site of heinous crimes, but every year for the last decade, someone is murdered right around this time of year. The GreenMan Theatre Troupe’s annual mystery dinner theater production is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this year with a birthday party for Dowager Duchess, Lady Dolores Fussworthy. “It’s very immediate theater,” said Carolyn Thomas-Davidoff, director and writer of “Doubtful Abbey: Murder and Mayhem at Fussworthy Masion.” Thomas-Davidoff worked on the lighting for the troupe’s very first mystery dinner, “The Boardwalk Melody Hour Murders,” in 2004 and has been involved ever since. “When we started we didn’t know if we were going to be able to continue,” said David

Soria, the theater’s artistic director. The first mystery dinner was meant to be a one-time fundraiser to get the new community theater off the ground, but the audience demanded more. The annual production still functions as a fundraise, which Soria said is essential to GreenMan.

Because the annual event is a fundraiser, an original script saves the theater money on royalties, but it’s also exciting for cast members like Ashley Thompson of Roselle. In her second production with GreenMan, Thompson said her favorite part about the troupe is the closeness of the cast and crew. “I see these great friendships and relationships being made,” said Soria, who met his wife, Katie, a member of the Doubtful Abbey cast, at a past show. Part of community theater’s appeal, for many involved, is the amount of behind-the-scenes work that goes into each performance. “They have to turn their lives upside down to be able to participate in something like this,” Thomas-Davidoff said. Shazad Mehta works at his family business, Mehta Motors, in Elmhurst, but lives in Chicago. Everyone’s circumstances are different, but each

gives many hours to each production. “I’ve always kind of been the ham of the family,” said Mehta, an Elmhurst native who will be performing in his ninth GreenMan production this season. Thomas-Davidoff remembers Mehta’s first audition just before she was ready to call it quits after a couple of hours without a standout performance. “To me the play just took off at that point,” she said of Mehta’s audition. The casting call makes all the difference said Thomas-Davidoff. The Western Springs teacher spends most of her summer writing or co-writing the murder mysteries, but during her winter break she rewrites the script after meeting the cast. Once, she even created an entirely new character for an actress who came to a casting call. As much as she enjoys writing the script, Thom-

as-Davidoff also likes how the dinner theater setting gives the cast the opportunity to involve the audience. Over the years, some guests have started wearing period costumes to the shows. Before the show, the cast mingles with the audience during a cocktail hour, and during the performance, characters often make their way between tables and involve audience members in the show. “You can imagine that there’s some people who just want to watch the play, and then there are other people who are eager to have the cast members approach them,” Thomas-Davidoff said. Whether audience members want to observe or get into the act, for first-time GreenMan cast member Kitty Mortland of Chicago, the accessibility of community theater is what makes it special. “We’re all here enjoying an evening of art together,” Mortland said.

An Elmhurst band, The Orwells, made quite an impression when it performed on “Late Show with David Letterman” last month, prompting Letterman to demand an encore. While the five York High School graduates – Matt O’Keefe, Dominic Corso, Mario Cuomo, Grant Brinner and Henry Brinner – weren’t prepared to play another song, they should have a full set list ready April 1 at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. The City Council took a big step forward on a long-debated issue when it selected a developer for the Hahn Street Redevelopment in downtown Elmhurst. The city now will negotiate with Morningside Group for a proposed six-story structure that will feature apartments above first-floor retail, along with public parking and green space.

Snow problems

I am sounding off about the bad job Berwyn has done along Ogden Avenue with snow removal. If you come down here Affordable Care Act as a pedestrian there is no place is broken to walk. Check out the crossings A letter to the editor printed at Home and Clinton Avenues in the Jan. 29 Suburban Life criticized U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam and the businesses along Ogden. I was at the light at Clinton and for his published views on the Ogden and the sidewalks were Affordable Care Act. The author covered. The crossing guard also indicated there were no was standing on top of the snow problems with the Affordable mound. Where are children and Care Act, but rather with the pedestrians supposed to walk computerized registration. safely? You go through other Wrong; Mr. Obama recognized towns like Lyons, Brookfield problems and took it upon himself to violate Article 2, Section 3, and Stickney and the walks are of the U.S. Constitution, and not passable. They hardly push the snow back on the south side of enforce the Affordable Care Act Home and Ogden. What are we law as passed. Instead, without Congress, he unilaterally rewrote getting for our tax dollars?

Pet Memoriams

EHP

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.

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.

8LETTERS Open meeting limits undemocratic To the Editor: I am writing to express concerns regarding the actions of the Elmhurst Zoning Commission during its open meeting Jan. 30. This meeting was the public’s opportunity to comment on the application for zoning variances for the controversial Addison Street parking garage. Tamara Brenner, a resident opposing the garage, presented a detailed critique of the parking study commissioned by the city. Rather than listen to her complete analysis, a commissioner asked if her work had been “peer reviewed.” Later Ms. Brenner was challenged by the commission’s acting attorney to demonstrate her status as an “expert witness.” It is undemocratic and contrary to the Illinois Open Meetings Act to place limits on who may participate in an open meeting and what they may present. The commission can not require that critiques be offered only by “experts” or pursuant to a peer reviewed study. They are obligated to consider all input but may value it based on their assessment of its quality. The commission chose to cut off Ms. Brenner’s presentation, as well as that of another garage opponent. Brevity is important but any time limits should be announced in advance, expansive enough to allow for substantive input and applied evenhandedly. Ms. Brenner has done us all a service by identifying flaws in the needs analysis supporting the garage’s construction. Given the amount of concern about the project, and the millions of dollars of taxpayer money at stake, it’s important that the zoning commission keep an open mind rather than give any impression that hearings may be a charade. The next meeting on the Addison parking garage application will be Feb. 13. At that meeting I hope that the commissioners conduct themselves in a manner consistent with both the letter and the spirit of the Illinois Open Meetings Act. Lauren Pittelli Elmhurst

Municipal attorney Buzz Hill advised that the commission limit nonexpert testimony for the remainder of the hearing in response to Brenner’s presentation. “You’re making a record here of somebody who is not a parking expert, who’s not a traffic engineering expert, who’s not a planning expert ... and I think that, that can be a problem,” Hill said.

When Georgi and Frank Clement’s daughter Mia died at 17 months old, the couple wanted to help other parents with chronically ill children. Miracles From Mia was born in 2006. “I feel like when I do it, it honors my daughter,” said Georgi Clements, a Villa Park resident. Mia was born with bilateral multicystic dysplastic kidney disease, which means neither of her kidneys functioned properly. Friends and family pooled their money to help pay for Mia’s necessary kidney transplant. “We had really good insurance, but no insurance lasts forever,” she said. The fund was originally called Miracles For Mia (note “for” instead of “from”), but Mia died before she received a kidney. “Then we were left with money,” Georgi Clements said. She said she didn’t feel right keeping it so she changed the name of the nonprofit, which has helped more than 20 children so far, she said. The nonprofit’s biggest annual fundraiser is Cupid’s Kisses, conducted at the Diplomat West in Elmhurst where Clements said owner Tom Shubalis always makes an extra effort to help with the event. Each year, 200 to 300 people buy tickets for the benefit. This year, the benefit will support two families in the area. Aidan Schwarz, a 3-year-old from Lombard, weighed just 4 pounds, 4 ounces when he was born premature at 36 weeks. He had trouble eating safely because he would aspirate. Aidan was diagnosed with Danon disease, a condition that causes weakness in the heart and skeletal muscles in addition to mental delays. He now eats on his own and just started walking this year, but his parents expect Aidan

If you go What: Cupid’s Kisses Where: Diplomat West Banquets, 681 W. North Ave., Elmhurst When: 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday Tickets: $40 at www.miraclesfrommia.org or $45 at the door Event: appetizers, open bar, entertainment and a silent auction will need a heart transplant in the future and possibly braces or even a wheelchair as his muscles get weaker. “He’s a happy little boy,” his mother Rachel Schwarz said. “He likes to be social.” Aidan started preschool this year at Community Presbyterian Church in Lombard where his father, Eric, is a youth director. Rachel Schwarz said Aidan loves it and his new friends. Adriana Galan of Bensenville said the money raised at Cupid’s Kisses this year will help her and Armando Naranjo Jr. pay for a special surgery for their 15-month-old son Abel Naranjo, who was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, more commonly called brittle bones. “He just smiles through the pain,” Galan said of her son, who at one point had fractures in three of his limbs at the same time. Since OI causes fragile bones and muscle weakness, Abel won’t be able to wrestle with his older brother, Noah Naranjo, 5, but the two still find ways to play together. Abel doesn’t suffer from any mental delays, but Galan said he will most likely need surgery to place rods in his legs and a special walker before he can walk. Beyond the financial help Galan hopes to find through Cupid’s Kisses, she wants to spread awareness that Abel isn’t so different from other children. “We feel like we have normal kids, but they’re just more fragile,” she said of parents who have children with OI.

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

Thomas’ turn in spotlight York junior Jayvon Thomas sparks Dukes in win against LT By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com

York’s Jayvon Thomas goes up for a shot during Saturday’s game against Lyons Township. Thomas scored a career-high 30 points in the Dukes’ overtime win.

LA GRANGE – All season long, opposing coaches have enviously spoke about the number of players that are capable of having a big game for York’s boys basketball team. On Saturday, junior Jayvon Thomas added his name to the list. Thomas scored a career-high 30 points in a 70-62 overtime win at Lyons Township for the Lions’ Pack the Place night. Thomas has only joined the starting lineup for the last several games, but with star forward Frank Toohey in foul trouble York (21-2, 8-0 West Suburban Silver) needed to get its offense from another source. “We usually pound it inside, but Frank got in foul trouble so somebody else had to step up,” Thomas said. “It was just my turn to step up.” LT led 33-31 at halftime and the teams went back and forth in the second half. The Lions led 59-56 after Jim Cullen sank two free throws with 28 seconds left, but Charlie Rose nailed a 3-pointer to tie the score on the next possession. The play was drawn up for Rose out of a timeout. Cullen missed a layup attempt with four seconds left and the game went to overtime. “It’s just who wanted it more,” Rose said. “They played really well tonight. I think we just got a little lucky and played hard at the end to close it out.” The overtime was all York. The Dukes scored the first 11 points of the OT.

York 70 Lyons Township 62 (OT) YORK LEADERS • Jayvon Thomas: 30 points • Charlie Rose: 11 points • Stanley Roberts: 10 points

“We usually pound it inside, but Frank got in foul trouble so somebody else had to step up. It was just my turn to step up.” Jayvon Thomas York junior

York defeated LT for the third time this season and left Lions’ coach Tom Sloan looking for answers. “We’ve seen Toohey score in the 20s, Rose score in the 20s and close to 30 last year,” Sloan said. “[Jack] Heinle has scored close to 20, [Stanley] Roberts has scored 18 and now [Thomas] goes for 30.” The Dukes picked up another close win on Jan. 31, 61-59 at Proviso West. York has four games left in the Silver, including three on the road. Next up is tonight’s test at Glenbard West. The road crowds probably won’t bother Thomas, who said the raucous crowd at LT helped fire him up. “Once I got my first bucket I kind of got into it,” Thomas said. “The crowd was pumping me up.”


By DAN SANTAROMITA LA GRANGE – York’s girls basketball team had been on a successful run, but the Dukes hit a bit of a wall over the past week. York just missed out on a pair of West Suburban Silver wins last weekend and lost to Benet in another close game, 56-51, on Tuesday. The Dukes lost two games by two points each, falling to Proviso West 49-47 on Jan. 31 and Lyons Township 34-32 on Saturday. “I just hope between now and the playoffs that we find ways to win those close ones,” York coach John Constable said. “We have won Erica Benson - ebenson@shawmedia.com some close ones throughout York’s Molly Schlecht grabs a rebound and goes back up for a shot during the course of the season.” Saturday’s game against Lyons Township.

Area wrestlers start on road to state finals After weeks of tracking 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.

York

Ordonez (132 pounds), Jordan Santiago (160), Joe Helton (220) and T.J. Helton (285) also have a good chance to advance to the sectional. Once there, coach Terry Clarke thinks their might be easier sailing. “Our regional is loaded,” Clarke said. “If we can get all our good kids out of our regional, they have a chance to get to state. The deal is they have to get out of the regional.”

Glenbard East Class: 3A Regional: Glenbard East Sectional: Leyden Outlook: The Rams have had

virtual lock to win the team title. Two teams that beat the Rams in dual meets this season, Addison Trail and Wheaton North, are also in the regional. However, the Rams should still be able to advance a healthy number of wrestlers. The six returning state qualifiers are Carlos Fuentez (106 pounds), Anfernee Rodgers (120), Dayton Olson (126), Jake Drew (132), Josh Martin (145) and D’Andre Johnson (285).

Class: 3A Regional: Glenbard East Sectional: Leyden Outlook: The Blazers are

21 wins in dual matches by going 21-5 in duals. In addition, the Rams have more tournament success, including a best-ever tie for second at the DuPage Valley Conference tournament. East has six returning state qualifiers, but unfortunately they likely won’t be able to turn that success and experience into a regional title. Oak Park-River Forest will be favored to win most weight classes and is a

having one of the best years in program history as they won the West Suburban Gold by going 6-0 in dual meets. The Blazers also picked up a dual win over Glenbard East, so they will be expecting a large number of sectional qualifiers. The only state qualifier back is Niko Rocha, who will be looking to build on his experience there last year, when he went 1-2. Heavyweight Bobby Carson has just two losses this season,

some top quality wrestlers, but will be thrown into one of the toughest regionals in Class 3A. State favorite Oak Park-River Forest, Addison Trail, Glenbard East and Wheaton North all have very strong teams and will take up many of the three sectional qualifying spots at many of the weight classes. Noah Fleckenstein is York’s best chance at a regional champion, but OPRF’s Andre Lee is a top wrestler at 195 pounds as well. Michael

although one of them came against Glenbard East’s D’Andre Johnson. Those two could be battling for the regional title.

Willowbrook Class: 3A Regional: Glenbard East Sectional: Leyden Outlook: T h e W a r r i o r s don’t have as much top heavy talent as last year when Dan Draski and Dan Rowland both made state finals. After several injuries hurt the team in the regular season, they went just 1-5 in West Suburban Gold duals. However, Willowbrook still has some talented wrestlers capable of big postseason runs. Senior Jake Kroeger (182 pounds) missed some time earlier in the season, but qualified for state as a sophomore. Matt Rowland (152) is the younger brother of Dan and is proving to be one of the top sophomores in the area. Christian Chavez (220) also had a good season, but is in a loaded weight class at the regional. “You will have to have much better than a good day just to keep going,” Willowbrook coach Brian Wilson

said. “I’m talking from regional up. This is a tough area. If you take top three at our regional, you should probably be top four in our sectional and go to state.”

Montini Class: 2A Regional: Elmwood Park Sectional: Lakes Outlook: The Broncos don’t have their deepest team in recent memory, but they are expected to win a seventh straight Class 2A state title. Chris Garcia, Xavier Montalvo and Anthony Ferraro are defending state champs back in the fold. Jimmy Pawelski, Vince Turk and Edgar Ruano medaled last year and hope to become champions.

IC Catholic Class: 1A Regional: Lisle Sectional: Plano Outlook: Last year the Knights qualified four wrestlers to sectionals. Two sectional-qualifying returners, senior Tommy Guinan and sophomore Brendan O’Brien, will lead the Knights into the regional.

Suburban Life ATHLETE OF THE WEEK D’ANDRE JOHNSON Glenbard East Junior | Wrestling Why Johnson was selected: Johnson won the DuPage Valley Conference title at 285 pounds by defeating all three of his opponents via fall. Glenbard East junior wrestler D’Andre Johnson dominated the 285-pound weight class at the DuPage Valley Conference meet on Sunday at Naperville Central. He won three matches with three pins, two coming in the first period, to improve his season record to 37-2. Johnson qualified for state as a sophomore and is hoping for more this season. Johnson, the Oak Trust Credit Union Athlete of the Week, talked with Suburban Life sports reporter Dan Santaromita about his DVC tournament performance.

How big of an accomplishment was it to win the DVC title? It’s a big deal for me considering the DVC is one of the most prestigious conferences

Thanks to their hot run, IC earned the top seed in its own Class 2A regional. Westminster Christian is the No. 2

seed in the regional. IC’s success has come largely due to the team’s balance. Grace Vitek is averaging 10 points, but she is the only team’s double figure scorer. Rory Manion (8.5 points and 5.6 rebounds per game) is the team’s top forward. Abby Radoha (7.8 points per game), Erin Maloney (7.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists) and Chiara Gaudio (6.2 points) have also been major contributors.

Was it a goal of yours to pin all of your opponents?

Winning streak hits 10 for IC girls

It definitely is a goal because last year I set the [Glenbard East] record for pins in a season. Last year, I set the record for pins in a season with 24. Now I’m up to 27.

What postseason goals do you have? Podium, definitely. I want to be at least top five and I will do anything it takes to get there.

What was your experience at state last year like? Last year, I was scared. It was a lot to take in. Going down this year, I don’t plan on being as nervous because I’ve been through it.

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. As lucky as the NFL owners got young quarterbacks, but that none of with the weather last week in New Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick or York and New Jersey, and as incrediCam Newton has done anything to sugbly lucky as they were on gameday, my gest they will be among the league’s top sense from Roger Goodell and the othpassers but all three can beat you with er powers that be is they know exactly their legs at almost any time? how lucky they got and they will be in To be clear, I suspect teams quarterbacked by Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, no great hurry to try it again. Interestingly enough, the two Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees will cold-weather cities with open air stadiwin another Super Bowl or two before ums rumored to be preparing bids for they are all done. But not without a top defense and a stud running back or two. February 2018 are Denver and Seattle. We’ll know more about this at the Bringing this closer to home, there is a theory that’s been espoused main- NFL owners meetings in the spring, but I’d put my money on New Orleans, ly by ill-informed media and fans, which also will be preparing a bid for but also by the occasional NFL coach 2018, while the “cold weather” quesor general manager, that teams can

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

Shoveling snow Your gym is packed. Don’t wait in line for a machine; get a workout in your driveway and pick up a shovel. It’s more economical than a snow blower, and shoveling is an intense cardio workout that exercises muscles in your legs, core, back, shoulders and arms. Burn up calories: The exact amount depends on pace and intensity, but expect to burn around 250 calories for every 30 minutes of shoveling. If you experience lower temperatures, heavy snowfall, or the need to chop ice, you’ll burn even more calories as your body fights to stay warm and increases exertion. (Be safe, of course, and don’t shovel snow if you have a medical condition or you don’t normally exercise.) Work diferent muscle groups: Shoveling snow is a high-intensity workout – especially if you shovel fast – and it works all of your major muscle groups. You will feel it the next day in your legs, core, back, shoulders and arms. Use a full range of motion and fire your core muscles as you bend and lift. Use proper technique: Make sure to squat and lift the snow with your legs, not your back. Second, avoid bending over at the hip flexors. Lastly, keep the shovel close to your body and walk to where you will dump the snow instead of over-extending, twisting or leaning to toss it. Dress right: Being too cold can be dangerous and will tighten up your muscles. Dress in winter layers, wear good boots with traction and cover up your hands, ears and head.

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month, but a lifetime of good vision for our most precious sense demands year-round attention because every stage of life poses different challenges. Let’s look at each stage.

Infants and children Vision in early life is continually developing, so eye care is critical to identify and treat such issues as strabismus (both eyes not focusing on the same point) and amblyopia (“lazy eye,” where one is weaker than the other). Although less common, children may also suffer from glaucoma, cataracts and rare eye diseases. Children are also susceptible to eye injuries from seemingly harmless toys, but proper vigilance by parents can avoid most injuries. Regular screening at this stage is the key to prompt diagnosis and treatment and crucial to ensure normal visual function throughout life.

A scene as it might be viewed by a person with glaucoma.

Teenagers Young adults are at risk for sports-related injuries, with most occurring in basketball, baseball and racquet sports, and workplace injuries, which can happen at any age. Protective eye equipment can prevent 90 percent of these injuries, but a recent survey by the American Academy of Ophthalmology found that such equipment is worn only 35 percent of the time during high-risk activities.

A scene as it might be viewed by a person with cataract.

Adults Adults 40 to 60 years are guaranteed to develop presbyopia (or “short-arm syndrome”), a progressive loss of ability to see objects up close, resulting in a tendency to hold material further away. Reading glasses that magnify, used when the arm isn’t long enough, don’t work for everyone, so prescription glasses may be required. An exam every two years can determine the need for prescription glasses, as well screen for eye diseases. Conditions beginning in one’s 40s or 50s — notably diabetes — can affect eye health later. Diabetes, which affects 26 million people in the U.S., is the most common disorder leading to vision loss in those under 65.

Seniors The majority of patients I examine as an ophthalmologist are in their 70s and beyond, and their biggest complaints are blurred vision, dificulty driving at night or poor vision despite several recent changes in glasses. My examinations often reveal the presence of one of three eye diseases. Cataracts, a clouding of the

eye’s lens responsible for focusing, are an inescapable part of aging that can dramatically impair vision. Medications and many diseases can also lead to cataracts — and at any age. An examination by a medical eye doctor is necessary to determine the cause and how to treat it. If glasses no longer help, surgery can restore function. Age-related macular degeneration, progressive loss of central

vision, is the most common cause of blindness in the U.S. for individuals over 65. The complaints are often indistinguishable from those of cataracts. Numerous studies have established a genetic link to this condition, so people with a family history of AMD should undergo routine examinations beginning in their 50s. The risk for glaucoma, a group of diseases that damage the optic nerve, increases with age. Like

AMD, genetics play a role, and those with a family history of glaucoma should have regular eye examinations, again beginning in their 50s. There are no symptoms for this condition; it is nearly always diagnosed during a screening examination. Jeffrey Gallo, M.D., is president of the Massachusetts Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons.
