Do you have any of the following symptoms? • Pins and needles feeling • Numbness in the hands or feet • Tingling or burning sensations • Weakness in the arms or legs • Sharp shooting or burning pains

If so, you may have a condition called peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy, or “nerve damage,” is one of the most chronic conditions in the U.S., affecting over 20 million Americans. Neuropathy results from injury to the nerves in the arms and legs. This disrupts the body’s ability to communicate with its muscles, organs and tissues. Most people don’t recognize neuropathy’s symptoms, which are: • Pins and needles feeling • Numbness in the hands or feet • Tingling or burning sensations • Weakness in the arms or legs • Sharp shooting or burning pains These annoying problems may come and go...interrupt your sleep...or even make your arm or legs feel weak at times. But even if you’ve had neuropathy symptoms for a while, there are 3 common myths I often see with this condition. Myth #1: Thinking More Pills Are The Only Solution A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method. While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, anti-seizure mediations, and anti-depressants -- all of which have serious side effects. Why not look for a drugless solution instead of just covering over the pain? Myth #2: Assuming Neuropathy is Only Found in Diabetic People Diabetic patients are not the only group to suffer with this condition. Actually more neuropathy sufferers are nondiabetic than are, according to a recent 2009 study. Here’s what the study, done by The Neuropathy Association, revealed... “Neuropathy is often misrepresented as only being diabetes related. However, this survey demonstrates that for every diabetic neuropathy patient, there are at least six more patients suffering with various neuropathies...” - Dr. Thomas H. Brannagan, III, medical advisor for The Neuropathy Association. Myth #3: Believing Numbness and Tingling will go away on it’s own. One of the biggest myths people believe about their numbness, tingling, and pain is that it goes away all by itself... without any treatment. But a study on back pain in

the British Medical Journal proved this myth false, showing that 75% of back pain sufferers who do nothing about it will have either pain or disability 12 months later. Let’s face it, your neuropathy symptoms haven’t gone away by now, it’s not likely they will disappear on their own. And it’s been shown in studies that if ignored, symptoms can intensify causing loss of sensation, unremitting pain, and even disability. Neuropathy Treatment System Relieves Numbness & Pain Fortunately, if you are suffering from any neuropathy pain, numbness or tingling, your symptoms may be relieved or eliminated by a new treatment. A new proven peripheral neuropathy treatment has been developed by a leading medical device inventor. The system helps the natural nerve pathways between your spine and feet (or hands) and can make your nerves functioning again. Just listen to what this new technology can do... Before each impulse is sent, it analyzes the waveform of your nerves, determines any abnormalities, creates the unique healing signal necessary, administers it, and then re-evaluates the result. This process happens 7.83 times every second or the 30 minute treatment.

What Other Professionals are saying about this program. ”The ReBuilder has helped our patients who have painful side effects from chemotherapy neuropathy so much...” -Cancer Treatment Centers of America. ”Previously, treating peripheral neuropathy patients hasn’t been really successful...but I’ve never seen resolutions like we’re seeing in these cases.”

Special needs residents shine at library By JESSE CARPENDER jcarpender@shawmedia.com GURNEE – The library is a meeting place for people of all kinds and can be claimed by any group within the community, Gurnee resident Jeanne Paskman said. When Jeanne Paskman’s son Corey, 27, visits the library, he’s excited to see friends he knows from Warren Special Recreation Association or coworkers from North Point, she said. “Corey’s been working really hard in terms of reading,” Jeanne Paskman said. “We use the library all the time, and we run into Corey’s special pals. You can see how enthusiastic they are to see each other, so surprised and happy to see other special people at the library.” SMILE, Special Meeting In the Library Event, met for the first time at Warren-Newport Public Library on Feb. 3. About 10 participants, all with special needs and many mutual friends from Warren Special Recreation Association, met to draw name tags and get a behind-the-scenes tour of the library. Corey Paskman attended with his girlfriend, Jacqueline LaMarca. The two had fun decorating name-tags and said they want to attend more SMILE events.

They can’t read or write at [grade] level, but they piece things together. I just want them to share with each other the joy of using the library.

IN THEIR LIFE

People you should know

Surgeon values one-on-one time with patients DR. JUAN SANABRIA | SURGICAL ONCOLOGIST AT CTCA o give his patients the individual attention they need from their surgeon, Dr. Juan Sanabria’s day at Cancer Treatment Centers of America starts at 6 a.m. and ends at 7 p.m. Sanabria, an experienced surgical oncologist, recently moved to Gurnee when he joined CTCA at Midwestern Regional Medical Center in Zion. He offers advanced treatment options for gastrointestinal malignancies. Originally from Bogotá, Columbia, Sanabria earned his medical degree from the Colegio Mayor de Ntra Sra del Rosario in addition to completing the MD International Medical Graduate Program at the University of Toronto, St. Michael’s Hospital, and completing several fellowships at other hospitals. Sanabria is an active member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons and has authored many manuscripts. He previously served as the Director of Pancreas Transplant at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. Sanabria talked with Gurnee Suburban Life reporter Jesse Carpender about his new role.

T

Carpender: Why did you decide to work at CTCA? Sanabria: When I was a researcher, I got a senior leadership award and went to Washington to accept it. The keynote speaker was my boss seven years ago, Edgar Staren, who is now working as the national director of Cancer Treatment Centers of America. He’s a guy I really respect and he asked if he could offer me a job as a transplant surgeon with opportunities to do a lot of good stuff. There aren’t a lot of programs for surgeons, and research is being cut. I accepted and I love the environment, the people and what they’re working toward here.

Carpender: What impressed you about CTCA? Sanabria: The people are kind and do their best to

please the patients. All the therapies are cutting edge. We can do robotic surgery which is available in very few centers. Our breast reconstructive program is very comprehensive. Anyone coming here can feel we’re doing better or on par with MD Anderson Medical Cancer Center at Houston and Sloan-Kettering Memorial Cancer Center (the top cancer treatment centers in the world).

Carpender: What makes your job meaningful to you? Sanabria: Helping people brings meaning to my life. There’s satisfaction in doing what you want to do with your life. I came from a large comprehensive cancer center. The difference here is we have fellows and residents (practitioners). In here the attending (surgeon) has direct

communication all the time with patients and a lot of one on one time with patients.

Carpender: How did you become interested in gastrointestinal malignancies? Sanabria: It was the people I know – When you’re surrounded by people whose expertise is in a certain area, you end up knowing more about it and realize you’re embedded. My mentors in Coloumbia – including Jose Patino, Professor of Surgery at Fundacion Santa Fe de Bogota and Andes Medical Center, Andes University School of Medicine – did my support in liver surgeries and learned to talk the lingo.

Carpender: What do your mentors have in common? Sanabria: All of them are great guys as a people who pursue excellence. They are

something unusual happens, talk to your doctor. If you’re losing weight, have night sweats, your bowel habits changed – don’t wait until you can’t wait anymore. Many people put it on hold because they’re scared it’s cancer. But if something happened early to detect it, it would be good for me (as your doctor).

uring their 60 years of marriage, Kenneth and Carol Meyer have made many memories together, traveling to 101 countries. The couple made another memory Saturday when they renewed their vows at the Sunrise Senior Living center in Gurnee, alongside Daniel and Dorene Dunkleman, fellow Sunrise residents married 61 years.

D

Sunrise’s three married couples living in the facility, at 500 Hunt Club Road, were all to participate, but sadly, Robert McCann’s wife, Juliette McCann, passed away Feb. 4. Robert McCann’s beloved wife was honored at the vow renewal ceremony. Mady Kaleel, activities and volunteer coordinator, said she thought a vow renewal ceremony would be a nice Valentine’s Day event for her residents. Kaleel said she wonders what life was like for the married couples at Sunrise before they came to live there. “It’s amazing how people can stay married for so many years,” she said. The Dunklemans lived in Deerfield for much of their married life and were Sunrise Senior Living’s first residents 11 years ago. Brittany Ritz, care manager, said the couple likes to exercise together, go to socials and do trivia. “He [Daniel Dunkleman, 88] calls her sweetheart, and they always look for each other when they’re separated. If she [Dorene Dunkleman, 87] sees him without his coat, she says, ‘Go get your jacket’ and makes sure he has it on,” Ritz said. Dorene Dunkleman said the key to a long-lasting marriage is respect. At the ceremony, Kaleel said the Dunklemans would follow the Jewish custom of breaking a glass and saying, “Mozel tov.” “We have an arch and we’ll be decorating everything,” Kaleel said days before the ceremony. Each couple, the Dunklemans and

Dorene Dunkleman gives her husband Dan Dunkleman a kiss Feb. 8 at their vow renewal ceremony.

Kenneth and Carol Meyer walk down the aisle at a wedding vow renewal ceremony Feb. 8 at Sunrise Senior Living in Gurnee.

“We’re old school. Once you got married, you stayed married and worked out your problems. Divorce was a bad word, and people barely thought of it.” Carol Meyer Meyers, had their own part of the ceremony with memories of their marriages shared. The Meyers, sitting in their Sunrise apartment, reminisced about their decades together and raising their three children.

Carol Meyer, 81, said she met Kenneth Meyer, 81, when they were in high school and he was the leader of their church youth program. “He was so much fun,” she said. Kenneth said in those days “you got married

early.” After their wedding in a church, “There was a tradition where you’d chase the bride away from her husband,” Kenneth said. “My brother headed the chase. They thought we were staying at the Hyatt in Chica-

go – they called and there was a Meyer checked in there. Well they went that night and knocked on the door and some old man answered,” he said with a laugh.

CLC to break ground on master plan in May SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA GRAYSLAKE – With a groundbreaking scheduled in May for a new science building on the Grayslake campus, the College of Lake County’s Sustainable Campus Master Plan will soon begin construction. David Agazzi, vice president of administrative affairs, provided an update on work on the $148 million Master Plan during CLC’s January board meeting. The master plan includes enhancements on all three campuses. In addition to the new science building, components on the Grayslake campus include repairs to the aging heating and air conditioning system, renovation of the B and C Wings to create a student services center, a new cafeteria, classroom technology upgrades and a geothermal plant and loop to save on energy costs. Work at the Lakeshore Campus in Waukegan will include a major new building and renovations of existing space. At the Southlake Campus in Vernon Hills, a new chemistry classroom will be added. The funding plan for the project was completed in September when the sale of $60 million in bonds was completed and Gov. Pat Quinn announced the release of $35.9 million in state funding for the Master Plan’s Lakeshore campus expansion. Committees also began meeting in September to develop specific programming, such as selection of specific academic programs and offices to be included in each master plan component. A committee to develop standards for classroom and office space, as well as interior finishes such as furniture and lighting, also began meeting.

CLC Foundation strategic plan At a recent committee meeting, CLC Foundation Board President Joanna Rolek and Vice President and President-elect Christopher Piazzi presented details on the foundation’s strategic plan approved in January after a 10-month process. The foundation decided to increase its fundraising for CLC student scholarships and grants to support student success initiatives from the current level of $500,000 to $1 million annually by 2020.

In addition to the Science Building, other construction scheduled to begin this year on the Grayslake campus includes renovations of the A and B wings, which will include the main lobby, restrooms, enclosure of the “checkerboard court” and creation of a new cafeteria, bookstore and student activities space. Renovation of Building 12 will create a new auto body repair shop. At the Southlake Campus, construction of a new chemistry lab is scheduled to begin in October. In addition to enhancing the educational experience at CLC, the new master plan should also lead to more opportunities for local vendors to do work for the college, Board Chairman Amanda Howland said. “Our new procurement policy is aimed at encouraging local vendors to do business with the college, and we held vendor fairs in December and January to encourage local companies to submit proposals for master plan work,” Howland said after the board meeting.

Carol Meyer worked at IBM to put her husband through graduate school. He pastored in Glenview, Rockford and Minneapolis. Kenneth Meyer was president of Trinity International University in Deerfield from 1974 to 2008. The university gave the Meyers a grandfather clock to commemorate his time as president, which stands in their Sunrise apartment. What kept them together for so long was patience, trust, faith in one another and God, they said. Carol added, “We’re old school. Once you got married, you stayed married and worked

out your problems. Divorce was a bad word and people barely thought of it.” Kenneth said Sunrise has been a wonderful place to live with his wife. Previously, the couple had to live separately while Carol lived in another assisted living facility when she started having memory problems. Their daughter suggested the move to Sunrise so they could live together. “Mady [Kaleel] takes care of everything,” he said.

A night to remember Viking Park Dance Hall was transformed into a ball for miniature princesses Friday evening for the Gurnee Park District’s Enchanted Evening event. Cinderella, Snow White, Belle, Tiana, Rapunzel and Prince Charming welcomed children ages 2 to 12 for dinner, music and dancing, then posed for photos.

Kids today have more demands on their free time and tend to read less than kids did 20 years ago, said Prairie Trail School fifth-grade teacher Elise Diaz. “Electronic devices have affected kids’ love of reading,” Diaz said. That’s why it helps to have a visit from a Warren-Newport Public Library to demonstrate a love of literature and give reading options, she said. Jane Friess, youth services librarian and school liaison, visited Diaz’ fifth grade class Feb. 6 to give a live presentation similar to PBS’ “Reading Rainbow,” discussing the plots of six must-reads. “It shows your face to the community – librarians don’t just sit behind a desk,” Freiss said. Freiss trained to be a teacher and loves visiting youngsters to foster a love of reading. Freiss’ last book talk at Prairie Trail School was on the fantasy and science fiction genres. This time, she focused on historical fiction. “Books may have a sticker for historical fiction [on the library shelves], but they could have adventure, romance or mystery inside,” Freiss told the

When the class was asked if they became interested in a genre they wouldn’t normally read after Freiss’ last visit, most of the students raised their hands. When asked if they prefer to read on paper books or their school-provided iPads, the class responded that they prefer paper. Here are Freiss’ six historical fiction picks for intermediate-aged readers, with her descriptions.

SPORTS Girls basketball team ‘learned to play together’ By BILL PEMSTEIN GURNEE – The Warren Township High School girls basketball team had 18 losses as of early February. But coach John Stanczykiewicz’s players are starting to come together as a team – as seen by the team’s Saturday win against Lake Zurich 56-29. After the game Lake Zurich girls basketball coach Chris Bennett said, “I wouldn’t want to play them in the playoffs.” While Warren won’t be vying for a state title this year, team has improved as the season has gone along. Senior guard Kristen O’Brien has proven to be a dangerous scorer for the Blue Devils. Sammi Jo Nixon, Kylie Nedelka and Hailey Leinart are capable 3-point shooters and good ballhandlers. And there is a freshman, Rebekah Foley, who bears watching in

There

is more of a competitive zeal. They have that varsity mentality. They have learned to play together.” The game with Lake Zurich was never close. Leinart hit the first of Warren’s eight

3-pointers and the Blue Devils (9-18) were off and flying. O’Brien (game-high 18 points) dropped another 3-pointer and the Warren lead was 11-2 late in the first quarter. “At the beginning of the season, we were all pretty young,’’ O’Brien said. “And we were all over the place. Now, we are all getting into our roles.” Foley (13 points) didn’t make an impression in this game until the second quarter. This freshman opened the second quarter with a 12-footer. She closed the third quarter with a 3-pointer and the Warren lead was out of control at 45-17. “We played well tonight,’’ Foley said. “We have good chemistry.” With the game out of hand, Stanczykiewicz had a chance to clear his bench and give everyone a chance to play in the fourth quarter. Joining in on

the fun was the latest member of the varsity, Nefeli Papadakis. This youngster showed off some speed. “She’s our quickest player,’’ Stanczykiewicz said. “She does a nice job with the ball.” Stanczykiewicz is hoping to get a few good games out of tall guard Foley. “She’s starting to figure out varsity basketball,’’ he said. “And now, she’s our tallest player. She had a good game tonight.” In this victory, the 3-pointers were landed by O’Brien (3), Foley, Nixon, Leinart, Sarah Nelson and Jessica Turner. “We really wanted to win,’’ O’Brien said. “We were sick of losing. We were getting some good screens and that made things a lot easier.” Warren is the 15th seed in the 22-team Barrington Sectional.

A little

VALENTINE’S DAY sparkle

Nail art trend pairs well with romantic occasions

By JESSE CARPENDER jcarpender@shawmedia.com

T

his Valentine’s Day, let your nails do the talking instead of candy conversation hearts. Nail art is trendy according to the staff at Gurnee’s Salon Couture, and they have ideas for a love-themed manicure. Gurnee resident Erin Bailey said nail art goes beyond the usual manicure by including an artist’s touch, like a theme or story, she said. “The coolest ones I’ve seen are storyboard nails, or one that went from summer to winter [in colors across the nails of both hands],” Bailey said. On Feb. 4, Bailey and fellow stylist Stephy Kurr practiced some Valentine’s Day nail art with hearts, glitter and accents. Valentine’s Day is a busy time for full service salons such as Gurnee’s Salon Couture, as clients come in to get pampered and look their best for the holiday. Kurr of Libertyville said nail trends are following the ombre hair trend, in which the tips are lighter than the base color. “A lot of people also have accent nails, typically on the ring finger or pointer finger, which are painted differently than the other nails,” she said. For Bailey’s nails, she used both trends by dipping her tips in powdered glitter and painting large white hearts. “Nail art is small, so if you want your designs to be bold, you need color contrast,” Kurr said. As Kurr dipped Bailey’s nail in red glitter, Bailey said “This reminds me of the slippers from Wizard of Oz.” Kurr said she painted through high school. “We’re artists of the whole body,” she said. Though Salon Couture’s clients come in mostly for hair, the stylists would love to do more nail art, she

Erin Bailey, 19, of Gurnee gets a Valentine’s Day manicure from Stephy Kurr, a cosmetologist at Salon Couture in Gurnee.

How to heart your manicure Salon Couture provided these tips for a simple do-it-yourself Valentine manicure – or stop in and they’ll do it for you. Step one: Remove any nail polish. Shape nails with a file – choose a shape that will suit your designs, whether it’s oval, square or pointed. Use cuticle oil and a base coat to protect your nails and prevent polish staining. Step two: Paint on a coat of red polish – Salon Couture uses O.P.I. products. While the polish is wet, sprinkle on or dip nails in SuperNail loose glitter. Make sure to leave yourself canvas space for step three. Step three: Using a toothpick, drop small dots of white polish in a desired pattern – plan one big heart on each nail, diagonals or just an accent heart on your ring finger. Use the toothpick to shape the dots into hearts before they dry. Other shape ideas include lips or Cupid wings. Step four: Let dry, add a top coat. said. Kurr learned her trade at the Avon Institute. “It’s all about beauty inside and out – giving back to society and making sure our products are natural and don’t hurt the environment,” she said. Bailey trained at the Col-

lege of Lake County’s beauty school while attending Warren Township High School. Salon Couture will be her date for Valentine’s Day, but if she wasn’t working she’d rock some loose curls and go out for steak, she said. Yessy Molinaro, Salon

Couture stylist who used to have a salon in Costa Rica, said one of her favorite clients came in to get ready for a date. “She came in with this mess of hair, but when she left she looked so gorgeous, I myself fell in love with her,”

Molinaro said. “She got married so I guess the date ended [well].” Nell Hughes, owner, said the classic dinner date look for 2014 is “loose curls, a nochip manicure and natural makeup.” Hughes was 22 when she opened Salon Couture’s first location in Elgin seven years ago. Gurnee’s Salon Couture opened in March and kept on staff from Salon Glow, which previously had been in that location. The cosmetologists were on hand at Gurnee Park District’s Enchanted Evening on Feb. 7 to do hair and makeup for six Disney princesses and smaller makeovers for the kids attending the dance. For Valentine’s Day weekend, Salon Couture will offer special gift packages on nails, hair, facials, waxing and massages. For information, call 847-543-8200.

he Jelly Belly Visitor Center warehouse and store offers daily tours where visitors learn the history of the candy that former president Ronald Reagan made popular. Reagan has said he used the bean-formed sweet to kick his tobacco habit. “The tour room is where it all starts,” said Joy Basco, the retail store manager at the center located across the state line in Pleasant Prairie, Wis. Families eager to see what’s behind the door make a beeline for their turn to hop on the Jelly Belly train and explore what goes on behind the scenes of the real-world candy land.

The tour guides 1,200 to 1,300 visitors daily during the center’s busy season around Easter and in the summer, Basco said. Visitors come from across the United States and other countries. At the Jelly Belly Snack Bar, visitors can taste more than 190 unique flavors. During a recent tour, attendants Cathy Ward of Gurnee and Hilda Villareal of Beach Park gave samples to families, including the Solwolds of Heartland, Wis. The family said they took the tour because their three children had the day off from school. “It’s something fun to do as a family,” John Solwold said. The deal he and his

wife, Wendy Solwold, made with their children was that each would taste a funky jelly bean. Stinky socks, vomit, grass, boogers and pencil shavings are just some of the distinct flavors available. Basco hasn’t tried any of those, and she’s not going to, she said. It’s more the smell than the taste that people notice when biting on those alternative flavors but still, “I’d rather just sell them,” she said. The first stop on the tour is the Jelly Belly Direct, where passengers often wave and smile at shipping coordinator Adriana Paredes of Gurnee. Paredes said she likes to pause and wave back to the many smiling faces she sees each day. She also enjoys reading the labels, which sometimes read like poetry. One label reads “Sweet candy for my sweetheart.” As the train makes its way around and arrives at each station, visitors learn how the many flavors are created. Kiwi, Dr. Pepper, red apple, lemon drop and orange sherbet are just five of the company’s original 40 flavors. Basco said the company creates a new flavor each year. Its most recent creation is draft beer,

On the tour, visitors get to see dresses and accessories made out of Jelly Bellies and other candy the company makes, such as chocolate malt balls and champagne bubbles. The last stop for the Jelly Belly train is the candy store, where children and adults can shop for Jelly Belly merchandise. There are shirts, hats, flipflops and many other items with the Jelly Belly logo.

or two weekends for yourself. 3. Keep yourself busy. Have an instrument that you always wanted to pick up? A language that you would love to learn? A sport that you want to master? Do it. There is no better time to get a hobby. It is too easy to come home after a day of school, jump on the couch, and stay there for the rest of the day. Do not leave room for laziness. 4. Dress for success. Try to stop yourself in the morning when you reach for those oh so comfortable baggy pair of sweatpants. Certain experiments have shown that when a person wears a doctor’s coat, they feel sharper; so dress like you are ready to take on the day to help keep your eyelids from drooping in class. 5. School isn’t all that bad. If you’re tempted to skip class, “try to focus on the fun parts of the day like seeing my friends or listening to the teachers jokes in class,” said Warren senior Maxine Mella. School isn’t torture. Getting up for school before the sun rises may be unethical, but once you are there, school can be enjoyable. You will rarely see your classmates again, so take advantage of the last couple of months you have with them. High school is coming to an end. As tempting as the couch looks, there are still a few more months ahead of us. Keep fighting the good fight because in no time, we will be going home with our diplomas in our hands, and high school will be a thing of the past.

Senioritis. n. A crippling disease that strikes high school seniors. Symptoms include: laziness, an over-excessive wearing of track pants, old athletic shirts, sweatpants and sweatshirts. Also features a lack of studying, repeated absences and a generally dismissive attitude. That definition comes from Urban Dictionary. Once an unaccustomed subject, senioritis is now much too real for high school seniors. As college acceptances roll in and the idea of graduation enters the mind, some students fall into a pattern of laziness and procrastination. Consequently, grades start to drop like the temperature during Gurnee winters. Unfortunately, slacking off is not an option. Colleges may and have been known to resign applications due to a sudden drop in grades during second semester of senior year. Yikes, right? Do not fear, however, there are methods of coping with senioritis. 1. Think of the consequences. “I know that a lot of people are struggling with it now that they know what school they are going to,” Allison Olshefke, a senior at Warren said. “But with AP tests and midterm reports, I still feel compelled to continue to work as hard as I can.” As mentioned before, colleges still have the power to resign their applications, and the hard work that has been put into the past three years could go down the drain. 2. Have fun. Seniors have worked hard to be where they are at. Grades matter but are not weighed heavily, so give yourself a break – in moderation, of course. Treat yourself to a Disney marathon, revive childhood memories at Jump America, or relax those muscles with a trip to Heavenly Massage Spa. Senior year should be relaxing, so do not be afraid to reserve one

Author to speak about passenger pigeon extinction SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA NORTH CHICAGO – When he was in junior high school, Joel Greenberg read an astonishing fact in a book about birds. The passenger pigeon, which once flew by the millions over Illinois including Chicago and its suburbs, was extinct. Gone forever. Greenberg, a Skokie native and former president of the Evanston North Shore Bird Club, didn’t know then, but he grew to be an adult who was determined to learn as much as anyone about the passenger pigeon – its life on earth, its relationship with humans and the ultimate loss of the species. Indeed, the passenger pigeon would become his raison d’etre in the 21st century, and the subject of his recently released book, “A Feathered River Across the Sky,” timed during the 100th anniversary of the death of the last passenger pigeon in the world. Greenberg, author of three other natural history books, discusses “A Feathered River Across the Sky” at 7 p.m. Feb. 20 at the Greenbelt Cultural Center, 1215 Green Bay Road in North Chicago. The

In the book, Greenberg, 59, explains how in the 1860s, more than five billion passen-

ger pigeons could be found in North America. Passing flocks could darken the skies for three days straight. Yet 40 years later, the last wild passenger pigeon was gone. “The slaughter was unbelievable,” Greenberg said, referring to the overhunting that, coupled with deforestation, killed off the bird forever. He wrote the book to go beyond preaching to the choir, he said. He would like people

to realize that “no matter how common something is, if we’re not careful, we could lose it.” Passenger pigeons were easy to see up until the late 1800s. Indeed, it was once the most abundant species in North America, if not the world. “The bird was seen in all parts of [Illinois] and at all times of the year, with the big flocks moving through most often in early spring and late fall,” Greenberg said. “In northern Illinois, at least, the species was deemed to be still abundant up to 1882.” Passenger pigeons were much larger than the typical mourning dove seen in suburban backyards and in corn fields. Its tail was also longer than a mourning dove’ tail, and its wings were long, broad and pointed. The male was a beautiful bird with a carmine red iris surrounded by a narrow, purplish-red eye ring. The bluish-grey back complemented the pinkish to rosy throat and breast . The wingtips were black and the side and back neck feathers glowed iridescent gold and green in the sun. The nomadic passenger pi-

geons ate acorns, beech and other tree nuts, flying to areas where food was most abundant. They also ate berries and other fruits in summer. Greenberg discovered these facts as he spent more than two years collecting and studying historical records. He visited libraries and collections in various parts of the country and spoke with experts all over the United States and Canada. Even after all his research, Greenberg said he still cannot fathom what it was like to have seen all those passenger pigeons and how quickly they disappeared. Historical records show that hunters would chase the pigeons year-round, killing adults and young on their nesting grounds, believing they would renest – even though they only bred once a year. Famous ornithologist Alexander Wilson wrote in 1812 that “when [pigeon]roosts are first discovered, [hunters], from considerable distances, visit them in the night with guns, clubs, long poles, pots of sulfur, and various other engines of destruction. In a few hours, they fill many sacks and load their horses with them.”

Discover family-friendly ways to spend Valentine’s Day Happy early Valentines! Tomorrow is the day of love, filled with cupids, hearts and elevated expectations. If you’re a parent of young children it’s a good chance you haven’t celebrated this holiday since they were born. Aside from the likelihood of booking a sitter for Valentines, on a Friday nonetheless, there is the expense. If I’m honest, I would take that kid-free time and probably end up at the grocery store, or sleeping in my car. We plan on celebrating Valentines as a family and sharing our love for each other ... at least for the next few years. Here are some great ways you can celebrate as a family at home or on the town:

Make a weekend of it Surprise the kids with a night, or a weekend, at Key Lime Cove {Gurnee}. You can pretend it’s not the coldest,

LITTLE LAKE COUNTY Melissa Haak longest winter in recent history and enjoy the fun of the indoor water park. Bring Grandma along to baby sit and enjoy a couples massage at the Paradise Mist Spa. Follow them on Facebook to get current specials or deals and call 855-676-4634 to book.

Mealtime fun Sharing a hotel room with your kids not your idea of fun? Celebrate with a fun Valentines dinner, and then put them to bed early. You can make your own heart-shaped pizzas, or order one from Lou Malnati’s. Or really indulge in the sweetness of the day and use the candy the kids will surely bring home from their

school party to decorate and top pancakes or crepes. You’ll definitely win coolest parent ever for letting them eat candy and breakfast for dinner!

Go to a party Want to swim the winter blues away but sleep in your own bed head over to the Wheeling Park District’s Arctic Splash Aquatic Center (333 West Dundee Rd, Wheeling). They are hosting an all ages open swim with Valentines themed games and giveaways. Admission is only $5 per person, runs from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Contact the Park District at 847-465-3333 for more information.

Celebrate with a movie Cue up the Netflix and have a movie night at home with Valentine’s favorites or head over to Fremont Library (1170 N. Midlothian Road, Munde-

lein) for its Saturday Cinema at noon Feb. 15. They will be showing A Charlie Brown Valentines. Pack a picnic or bring a snack (no popcorn) and enjoy this classic with the whole family. Contact the library at 847- 9183218 for more information.

Get crafty Not many other holidays bring out the crafts as much as Valentines. Celebrate your love with sparkles and glitter, with or without the kids. Michael’s Kids Clubs meets at Michael’s stores every Saturday from 10 am - Noon for only $2 per child. The craft on Saturday the 15th is heart painting {suitable for ages 3 and up} Contact your local Michael’s store for details.

Milwaukee Ave, Libertyville) every Friday night from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. you can drop-off your kids (ages 6 and up) and they will keep them busy creating art, and you can have a night out! Cost is $25 and spot must be reserved 24 hours in advance. Call 847-816-4865 to reserve your spot. If those aren’t enough ideas, visit http://www. littlelakecounty.com/calendar.

Made-in-Grayslake exhibit to open second installment at Heritage Center

• Thursday, February 13, 2014

The Grayslake Heritage Center and Museum has an exciting year planned for residents and visitors. The museum, a partnership between the Grayslake Historical Society and the village of Grayslake, offers three galleries for exhibitions, a community room, archives, dedicated classroom space, a museum annex for more displays and a courtyard ideal for summer concerts. The Esper A. Peterson Gallery is home to a national award winning exhibition titled “Embracing Change: The Growth of Grayslake.” This show provides visitors with an engaging overview of Grayslake’s origins and growth and even includes innovative smell stations, which recall vanished scents of an earlier time. Since the newly expanded museum reopened in 2010, the heritage center has seen tremendous growth, doubling attendance in three years. Last year, the museum brought a nationally traveling exhibition to Grayslake and reached out to new community partners. “Abraham Lincoln: Self-Made in America,” created by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum shared stories of our 16th president from his childhood to his last days in office. The museum worked with five community partners to create 20 supporting programs, including historically themed concerts, lectures and dramatic portrayals of Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Stephen A. Douglas and Walt Whitman. For their efforts, the museum and the historical society received a Superior Achievement Award from the Illinois Association of Museums. This award is given to organizations for programs, exhibitions or initiatives, which serve as a model to the entire museum community. In addition, the historical society received an Award of Merit for last year’s exhibition, “Aprons: Ties to the Past.”

History with a local twist

Candace H. Johnson

R.J. Lindsey of Chicago, portraying American inventor Thomas Alva Edison, points to his PowerPoint presentation on Edison’s life and many accomplishments Saturday at the Grayslake Heritage Center & Museum.

HISTORIC VIEWS David M. Oberg This year promises to be even better. We opened the first part of a two part exhibition called “Made in Grayslake” in January. “Made in Grayslake: Books and Bands,” shares the stories of 30 local authors as well as local bands such as Blush, Chevelle, Eclipse and The Scotch Lads. The second part of the exhibition will open Feb. 22 and will explore the history of local industries, inventors, entrepreneurs, people and products. The museum and the historical society have new initiatives and partnerships designed to offer more programs and services to the community. The Grayslake Historical Society is hosting a Search and Share genealogy group at 2 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month in the museum’s archives. This

group is open to all genealogy enthusiasts. The museum has also forged a new partnership with the Lake County Civil War Roundtable. The group meets at the museum at 7 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month, January through May and again September through November. Music fans will have a lot to look forward to this year. The museum will be offering concerts throughout 2014, starting with a special performance at the museum by Mark Dvorak at 2 p.m. March 8. Dvorak is an artist-in-residence and member of the faculty at the Old Town School of Folk Music as well as an accomplished guitarist and banjo player. In the warmer months, the music will move outdoors, both to the museum’s courtyard and to Grayslake’s new Centennial Park. The museum also will bring in professional storytellers during the summer, including Steven “Fox” Ellis, who will present “Civil War Ghosts and Legends.” Visit the muse-

um’s website for updates on these and other programs. Summer will mark the reopening of the Museum Annex, which houses a 1954 fire engine, 1890s hearse, kerosene wagon and sundry agricultural implements and tools. An Illinois Public Museum Operating Grant and a grant from the village of Grayslake have allowed for much needed upgrades to the facility for the long-term care and display of precious artifacts. Summer also will see the return of the “Grayslake Athletics,” the museum’s 19th century baseball team. Learn to cheer and jeer in fine Victorian style Aug. 23 as the Athletics take on the McHenry County Independents. In September, the Athletics will take on a new rival in nearby Hainesville. Fall will see a new exhibition about Grayslake’s role in World War I. From stories of local citizens in the front lines to tales from the home front, this limited engagement show will explore how

our residents were swept up in world events. Fall will also mark the historical society’s annual cemetery walk, a perennial favorite not to be missed. The year will end with the museum’s second annual “Grayslake Giving Trees” display. Local nonprofit and community organizations will be invited to share their stories by decorating a tree. The public is invited to vote for their favorites with their dollars, with proceeds benefiting community groups and the Grayslake Historical Society. There is plenty of family fun all year at the Grayslake Heritage Center and Museum. For information, visit the Grayslake Heritage Center and Museum’s website at www.grayslakeheritagecenter.com and the Grayslake Historical Society’s new site at www.grayslakehistory.org. Help us make history in 2014.

David M. Oberg is executive director of the Grayslake Heritage Center and Museum.
