goes with it,” Bodik said. “It’s like he’s doing it by memory.” Children’s stylist Donna Lusk of Woodridge said it can be a challenge with boys around 2 years old because they can get impatient, and oftentimes they’re afraid if it’s their first time. But eventually, even the most hesitant customers usually warm up to the experienced hairstylist. “It’s really fun when they get used to you and they come in and call you by name, like, ‘Hi Donna, I’m here,’” Lusk said. “You try to make friends with them.” Susan Kiani of North Aurora, who has been cutting kids’ hair for years, said it’s never a dull day at ABC Cuts, and it’s almost like being on the set of “Kids Say the Darndest Things.” “I love the kids and you never know what they’re going to say, which is so fun,” Kiani said.

HINSDALE – Much like the Who’s of Whoville love Christmas, one could say that with about a dozen hair salons, that residents of Hinsdale must love haircuts. However, even with salons scattered across the downtown in a family friendly community, there wasn’t a place exclusively for kids. Perched above Hinsdale and just north of Einstein Bros. Bagel, David Leon took notice. “That’s where I got the idea for this,” said Leon, owner of The Salon by David William, 54 S. Washington St., as he gazed out toward First Street above the downtown. “My windows look over the town and seeing all the kids down here all the time, just thinking it would be great to have a kid salon down here.” In November, that idea came to fruition when Leon and his business partner and high school friend, Jason Bodik, opened ABC Cuts at 7 E. First St., a hair salon exclusively for kids. “I brought it up to [Bodik] about doing a kids’ salon, and he has four kids while I have one on the way, so he’s like, ‘that’s something I’d really be interested in,’ ” Leon said. Leon, a resident of Hinsdale, and Bodik, of Clarendon Hills, also opened Ashley Pure Beauty directly adjacent to ABC Cuts where adults in general can get their hair cut. While the kids wait, they’re welcome to hang out in the central play area complete with toys and children’s books. “We wanted to make it wholesome,” Bodik said. “For just opening, I think it’s a really great turnout.” Every adult who’s ever been called a “kid at heart” will appreciate the nostalgia of the salon chairs as the design mirrors the Red Baron airplane, a vintage fire engine and a modern day Mini Cooper car. “There’s only one guy that makes

Eventful D-86 meeting ends with staffer’s outburst By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – One of the goals for “Friends of District 86” in the last elections for the school board was to support an active committee structure. On paper, the idea was to benefit the Hinsdale High School District 86 school board and the community with collaboration, but differing staff schedules have led to odd times for meetings. Take for instance the latest finance committee meeting Jan. 8. “It took place at 6:30 a.m. when the busy taxpayer is generally off to work or getting the kids off to school,” said Hinsdale resident Linda Burke in

an email. “Many meetings are held with only 48 hours notice, all on odd days of the week and time of day. An efficient board that really cared about transparency would conduct all or almost all of their business at the regularly scheduled board meetings.” School board Vice President Ed Corcoran said he is indifferent to when the committee meetings are and that, in the past, they have been held at all times of the day. “Staff prefers to have [meetings] early in the morning, some board members would like to have it done before work and in addition some members of the community would like to get it up and done in the morning,” Corcoran said. Corcoran said he’s chaired

meetings at all different times of the day and didn’t see a perfect solution when it comes to pleasing all members of staff and the community. “The evening meetings are not the preference of staff,” Corcoran said. “The staff would rather have morning or daytime meetings. Some members of the community have a strong preference for p.m. meetings.”

resident Roger Kempa has voiced his support of at several meetings. Interim Business Manager Gary Yeggy said he contacted Pepsi and Coke, but neither responded and supposed it was because a majority of drinks are sold through the school lunch program and not vending machines. Kempa said he wanted the district to maximize its revenue and bring down cost, which prompted Yeggy to lash District administrator out at Kempa, use a profanity lashes out As for the finance com- and leave the room. “The guy went berserk mittee meeting itself, one of the items on the agenda was there at the end,” Kempa said. Kempa said he didn’t hear once again the discussion of what Yeggy said to him, but exclusive contracts with Coke or Pepsi to sell products in he did receive an apology the high school vending ma- email from him later that day chines – something Darien reading:

idation and transparency. “What we have tried to do and what my signature is on county government, and I hope government in general, is that I’m devoted to reducing the size, scope and cost of local government,” Cronin said. Cronin commended the work that the village of Oak Brook has done and said it is “something special.” “You have been able to deliver services and provide for the citizens an appropriate level of

government, and you’ve done it without a property tax,” he said. “That is rather remarkable and I know that we’re all grateful for economic development, commerce and industry.” Cronin said since becoming board chairman, DuPage County has been able to cut the budget by more than $10.5 million, held the line on property taxes saving taxpayers nearly $6 million and has installed more accountability in the county’s independent agencies.

However, Cronin said he feels a problem exists in that the state of Illinois has more units of local government than any other state in the union at 7,000. He proposed a “magic wand” scenario in which one could wave that wand over Illinois and asked hypothetically, “Would you design [the government] in this way?” “I think the answer is obvious, it’s no,” he said. “So the challenge for me is how do we find that more efficient model.”

Oak Brook receives $850K grant for streetscape enhancement By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com OAK BROOK – Change is on the radar in the village of Oak Brook as about 2.5 miles of road will be improved thanks to a streetscape enhancement project planned for completion next year. The Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program,

which is part of the Illinois Department of Transportation, recently approved an $850,000 grant for use in a $2.5 million streetscape enhancement project. Mike Hullihan, Oak Brook director of public works, said the enhancement is planned for 22nd Street between Salt Creek and Interstate 294, and for York Road between Clear-

water and Dover drives. “[Enhancement] will include median improvements, and those are planters and plantings, and irrigation systems, and new light standards, which are taller, a little more decorative and they’re spaced further a part,” Hullihan said. The village is fortunate to get the grant as Hullihan said this was the last group of proj-

ects under ITEP eligibility. After 2013, villages will not be able to receive grants for standalone projects from the ITEP. “[ITEP] only allow beautification of streetscapes if it’s done in conjunction with the reconstruction of the road, but this is going to be done independently so we were fortunate in being able to finish

that whole stretch essentially between the mall and 294,” Hullihan said. Hullihan said the project is scheduled to go out for contract in August of this year, and then construction is expected to start in 2015. “It should be a pretty neat arrangement and a good-looking streetscape when it’s completed,” he said.

OAK BROOK – In a former decade, Dan Cronin was just a 14-year-old kid like any other with a summer job looking for that extra spending money. “I worked over at the bath and tennis,” the DuPage County board chairman said Tuesday at Oak Brook Village Hall. “I was a lifeguard and a swim coach, and all my life Oak Brook has been a very special place.”

Cronin has come a long way since that teenager who hung around poolside in the village. After spending 20 years in Springfield, 18 in the state Senate and two in the House of Representatives, Cronin moved on to the position of DuPage County board chairman. In his speech to Oak Brook residents Tuesday, Cronin said that since 2010, DuPage County has practiced the ACT Initiative, which capitalizes on the ideals of accountability, consol-

Search for principal continues By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com DARIEN – District 86 has come to grips with the news of Principal Brian Waterman’s move from Hinsdale South High School to Lyons Township and is ready to move forward in its search for a new leader. At Monday’s Committee of the Whole meeting, Superintendent Bruce Law said the district is accepting applications for the position and will begin reviewing those “soon.” The district isn’t alone in the decision process as residents have had the chance to weigh in on South’s next principal. “We will have opportunities for the South community to meet, talk to and engage the finalists,” Law said. “They’ve already had the opportunity, just as they did at Central to provide input as to the characteristics they would like to see in the next principal.”

Most wanted qualities A total of 373 responses were gathered after a survey was administered in December to find what qualities in a principal are most important. Of those who responded, 57 percent were parents of a student at Hinsdale South. Here are the three most popular qualities sought, according to survey results: 1. Keep staff involved On a scale of 1 to 5 (5 most important, 1 not at all important), a principal who involves staff in the decision making scored a 4.26 – the highest among the eight qualities questioned. 2. It’s a tie “My understanding is that it is seemingly moving forward quickly because we don’t want an interim there next year.” School Board President Claudia Manley asked if the

The new principal should have experience in testing and data use, as well as involving students in decision making: both scored a 3.7. 3. Enthusiasm preferred An overwhelming amount of survey takers would prefer an enthusiastic principal compared to one who was reserved. At the same time, results were middle of the road when it came to asking whether a principal should be “Strict vs. Permissive,” “Careful vs. Bold” or “Detail oriented vs. Big picture view.” To view the full survey results, visit hinsdale86.org. district was going to move forward quickly with hiring a new principal at Hinsdale South. “We are trying to get this done in as expeditious a manner as possible,” Law responded.

dciamprone@shawmedia.com DARIEN – The fate of an aging strip mall owned by the city of Darien is growing closer to being decided as aldermen recently hired an architectural and engineering firm for planning purposes. At the Jan. 6 City Council meeting, Shive Hattery Architecture Engineering was hired for $67,690 for architecture engineering for the Heritage Center strip mall near 75th Street and Cass Avenue. Darien Community Development Director Dan Gombac said the architecture firm will provide several phases of plans for the strip mall. Once the city receives those plans in about a month and half, the council can determine whether or not Darien will be building a new strip mall or if it will maintain a status to sell the

property, along with the plans, which will be portable when complete. “Those plans would be portable to that builder or developer, provided the City Council stays on track with the current site plan,” Gombac said. The second firm hired to be put in charge of engineering and survey work was Christopher B. Burke Engineering at $37,660. “That [plan] includes basically the infrastructure, the paving for example, the landscaping and site lighting,” Gombac said. Previously, the city determined that remodeling the existing strip mall was valued at $1.3 million, whereas constructing two new brick buildings would cost $2.1 million. The proposed site also incorporates a clock tower and community fountain.

Oak Brook billionaire and Beanie Babies creator H. Ty Warner will not be seeing the inside of a jail cell for pleading guilty last year to evading taxes. A federal judge sentenced Warner to two years probation Tuesday, which includes community service, according to media reports. Warner, 69, of Oak Brook, is the sole owner of TY Inc., a Westmont-based company that designs and sells plush toy animals, including Beanie Babies. He pleaded guilty last year to tax evasion after failing to report income he earned

in a secret offshore financial account he held with UBS, a global financial services firm headquartered in Switzerland. Prosecutors had been pushing for prison time for the Beanie Babies creator, who failed to report $25 million in income he kept in Swiss bank accounts. In a filing Jan. 1, Warner asked to receive probation stating he met the terms of his plea agreement, and paid a $53 million civil penalty and at least $16 million in back taxes, according to reports. Warner’s unhappy childhood and contribution to charity were also reinforced by the defense.

Ty Warner avoids jail time for tax evasion


Familiar, new faces populate GOP ballot By STEPHEN DIBENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com After the holidays, Illinois voters will be treated to another dizzying season – one that involves campaign ads, stump speeches and soundbites. The March primary season has arrived. Republican voters in DuPage County will soon decide a challenger to Gov. Pat Quinn from a crowded field of new and familiar faces. Elections generally favor incumbents, but many view Quinn as vulnerable since he narrowly won his first full term as governor in 2010. With a legislature dominated by Democrats, Republicans are also eager to send their first candidate back to the governor’s mansion since former Gov. George Ryan left embroiled in a scandal in 2003 that eventually sent him to prison. Here’s a look at the four Republican candidates on the March 18 primary ballot vy-

Brady in this campaign has shied away from his socially conservative positions on issues such as abortion and gun control, and has focused on the state’s economy and financial health. He also helped the re-

already has a messaging concern. Dillard voted against the brokered pension reform in December, while his running mate Sen. Jill Tracy, R-Quincy, voted for it. Primary opponents have yet to seize on the inconsistency between the Dillard ticket, but the pension deal for candidates on both sides will likely be a recurring issue throughout the election. Dillard, 58, brings decades of political experience as a statewide candidate, having served policy roles for both Edgar and former Gov. Jim Thompson. A Republican statehouse leader, Dillard has served 20 years in the Senate. Dillard’s campaign focuses on economic and budget issues, according to his website. His “Destination Illinois” plan would make Illinois business friendly and shrink the scope of state government – all positions that resonate with typical Republican voters.

State Treasurer Dan Rutherford The Pontiac native is the only GOP candidate to hold statewide office, easily winning the down-ballot race for treasurer in 2010 over Democratic candidate Robin Kelly. Quick to tout his accomplishments, Rutherford appeared to be plotting a governor run after his 2010 victory. But he encountered early problems in the Treasurer’s Office, primarily with the botched promotion of the Bright Star college savings program. He also faced criticism when thousands of recipients from a different college savings program received mailers with their Social Security numbers printed on the front.

Kitchens for the Average Joe & Jane Have you put off doing your kitchen long enough? Is this the year you have vowed to do something with your cabinets? Have the horror stories of kitchen remodeling made you afraid to even think about it? With prices approaching and surpassing $100,000 for full kitchen remodeling, it is no wonder the Average Joe and Jane feel a little overwhelmed. Enter Kitchen Tune-Up! This locally owned (Downers Grove) National Franchise has been offering minor kitchen remodels for 19 years. Marty Ceranec, the owner, has won numerous awards from KTU for Sales, Customer Service, and Creativity. He received the highest award in 2000 when he won National Franchise of the Year and in addition, is a two time Angies List Super Service Award Winner. We offer Kitchen Solutions for Any Budget. “I think some people get sticker shock when they look at the price of redoing an entire kitchen and are overwhelmed. We work with clients every day who have the same anxieties,” says Marty. KTU can provide anything from the Signature Kitchen Tune-Up to a full blown design and remodel. “The bulk of our work last year was in refacing and door replacement. Door replacement doesn’t change the color, but replaces old particle board doors with new solid raised panel doors utilizing concealed hinges. Refacing, on the other hand, enables one to change their oak cabinets to maple cabinets without buying all new cabinetry,” said Marty. “These two options also save landfill space because we are saving the boxes.” Why have they been so successful? Simple things like showing up on time and returning phone calls which is often lacking in the remodeling industry. I have chosen to keep the business small so I am involved in every job with my three long time installers. By doing this we have become well known as experts in minor kitchen remodeling.” Kitchen Tune-Up also offers cabinetry upgrades such as glass doors, tipout trays, soft-closing dovetail drawers, and full extension rollouts as well as counters in laminate, solid surfaces, granite and quartz (Cambria) “The Best Counter Top Around.” When questioned about any regrets, Marty replies, “We often Call Marty Now For a Free Estimate get calls to update the kitchen when the owner is ready to sell. We always wonder why they See Our Work At didn’t do it earlier so they could have enjoyed it sooner.” www.kitchentuneup.com

The wealthy businessman from Winnetka spent big money ($1.5 million) on early TV ads this holiday season to introduce himself to Illinois voters. As a first-time candidate with deep pockets, Rauner has branded himself a political outsider who will challenge the Springfield status quo and public unions in the mold of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. He also launched a ballot initiative to create term lim-

its through a constitutional amendment. Rauner recently started a “Hammer and Shake” website and social media campaign that emphasizes his promises to hammer out the special interests in Illinois government and shake up Springfield. But Rauner has also avoided talking in detail about his work as a venture capitalist. His recently disclosed federal income tax returns show that he made $53 million in 2012 from various hedge funds and business partnerships. Rauner’s business dealings at the Chicago-based private equity firm GTCR also helped Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel earn millions after Emanuel left the Clinton administration to become an investment banker. The two have remained friends. Going forward, Rauner likely will use his large war chest to increase his recognition with suburban and downstate Republican voters, while his primary rivals hammer away at his political inexperience and ties to powerful Chicago Democrats.

Things you didn’t know about DuPagePads What’s your New Year’s resolution? At DuPagePads we are committed to our mission to end homelessness. Though, we have worked in the community for 28 years, many might not be aware of the seven facts listed below. We have the comprehensive solution to end homelessness: The interim (overnight) housing sites are just one of the services we provide in our comprehensive solution to end homelessness. We also have a Client Service Center open weekdays, which provides basic needs, support groups and case COMMUNITY management; an employment VOICE program which partners Carol with 31 employers in the Simler community; and a permanent supportive housing program with 76 apartments throughout the county. We serve our neighbors: Seventy one percent of the people we serve listed their last address in DuPage County.

We have seen a 44 percent increase in the number of children and 35 percent increase in families during the past two years: To accommodate these families, we provide a family outreach program for participants in temporary housing, staying with friends or in hotels. Case managers ensure these families stay linked to community resources and create a plan for permanent housing. Last year this program served 199 individuals; 64 percent are now in stable housing, including 44 adults and 84 children.

A snowplow clears Ogden Avenue in Hinsdale on Jan. 6 as temperatures plummeted far below zero.

Here’s a big “thank you” to the village’s public works employees who worked around the clock in devastatingly cold conditions to keep roads clear after 20 inches of snow fell during back-to-back winter storms to start 2014.

Our greatest need for volunteers is in the spring and summer: As the seasons change, our interim (overnight) housing sites change as well. With these shifts and volunteers’ vacations, we always need additional volunteers. We have a new respite program: This short-term residential program allows individuals who are homeless to have the opportunity to rest after being discharged from a hospital, while providing access to medical care, support services and options for housing. The respite program has served 44 individuals and 45 percent are now in stable housing. Our new online volunteer training launched this month: This training was made possible by a grant from the Spirit of Volunteerism Fund of The DuPage Community Foundation. Volunteers are able to access a web-based training on topics such as crisis intervention, risk management and volunteer responsibilities.

On March 6, we will be hosting our 8th Annual Taste of Hope: The Taste of Hope offers guests the experience to dine at 25 restaurants in one evening. Leading area restaurants will serve their signature dish with wine pairings, auctions, raffles and more! Learn more at www.dupagepads.org/events. We need your support and hope to partner with you.

Does anyone have a shred of common sense anymore? I see the snowplows and garbage trucks creeping so slowly to squeeze past without hitting any of them. Why can’t the village of Brookfield require people to park on one side of the street only? What if a fire truck or ambulance needs to get down our streets?

Homeowners deserve better

Giving thanks to ComEd

I live in Downers Grove. I had a problem with the sewer. I called DuPage County Public Works ... The next day they came out and determined the cause of the problem. And I want you to know, I was very pleased with what they did. They were very courteous, very thorough ... You hear a lot of complaints. This is something favorable I want to tell you about.

I’m a resident of Glen Ellyn. Thanks to ComEd repair crews Friday. Pleasant Avenue was without power. ComEd crews came right away, repaired on time, by 7 p.m. ... They are an awesome, fantastic crew. We really appreciate their hard work. They sacrificed their dinner and their warm home. May God bless them. Thank you very much.

A shred of common sense?

What do you think?

What is wrong with people in Brookfield? I live on a narrow street, which has cars parked on both sides, even now, with all the snow! They park directly across from other parked cars!

To the person who responded to the teenager who wanted a break: You wrote, “Do you think life will give you a break?” and “By not getting a break now, you will be prepared for life when it doesn’t give you a break.” Wow! You sound incredibly bitter. I’d like to know how you spent your free time as a child! When I was a kid (a long, long time ago), I had free time during school breaks just like everyone else. The only time in our lives that we get free time is when we’re in school (or retired) and what’s wrong with that? I don’t know what motivated the parents of the teenager who complained. Maybe they have a reason for what they’re doing, but what you wrote is kind of severe.

Hinsdale native recalled as ‘most thoughtful man’ By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com OAK BROOK – Working with Robert “Rob” Effinger was described by those who knew him best as a “godsend.” “He was the most thoughtful man that I had ever encountered, and he truly cared about everyone that he was working with,” said Deirdre Bates, senior vice president and CFO of Goodcity in Chicago. Effinger, 79, was a longtime Hinsdale resident before living in Chicago, and was a graduate of Hinsdale Central High School and University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He passed away peacefully after a short illness surrounded by family Dec. 19 at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, according to Effinger’s obituary. Known as the founder of the church software company Omega C.G., Effinger also held several executive positions in

the banking industry in Chicago and New York City. Upon retirement, Effinger mentored young businesswomen and men, served on the board of Goodcity and volunteered as an advocate for foster children with CASA of DuPage County. According to its website, the mission of Goodcity is to identify and then support high-potential, community-based entrepreneurs whose goals are to create or enhance neighborhood and faithbased programs that promote self-sufficiency, hope and a sense of purpose in the lives of individuals in under-resourced communities, according to the Goodcity website. Bates described Effinger as outgoing, caring, a good friend and co-worker and someone who truly cared about others. Effinger is survived by four daughters, Mary Kay Baker, Linda Quinde, Margaret Shiner and Susan Butler; and eight grandchildren.

Natural athlete turns love into career By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com CLARENDON HILLS – One could say Kelly Smith’s career started when she was only 6 years old. And it may have been the words of her P.E. teacher, Jim Wondergym, believe it or not, who got her started in the recreation field. “It’s crazy. I tell everyone that really was his name,” said the new superintendent of recreation at the Clarendon Hills Park District. Growing up in Belvidere, Smith participated and scored well in school during the presidential fitness test. It was after that when Mr. Wondergym told her mom about a summer running program. From then on, a love of sports would blossom for Smith as she continued to participate in not only track, but an array of other sports. “I was on track, swimming

and then when I went into middle school I played volleyball and basketball and then continued volleyball through high school,” Smith said. “But track also always being the lead sport.” Running would continue for Smith into college where, like a regulation track, it would lead her life full circle as she started to think about recreational activities as a career. “I hadn’t considered recreation, I thought I was going to be an educator and my track coach directed me to recreation when I was at Illinois

State and I’ve never looked back,” she said. Smith received a Bachelor of Science in recreation and a master’s in administration. Over the course of her career, Smith has worked with the Belvidere Park District, Bloomington Parks and Recreation, Boys and Girls Club of Livingston County, YMCA of Stanislaus County in California, Mundelein Park District and at Morton Grove Park District before recently joining Clarendon Hills. “What I like about Clarendon Hills is it’s a small community,” she said. “I can be involved in making some direct impacts as an administrator, but I’m also leading the youth basketball program on Saturday and have contact with all the families.” Aside from helping with recreational sports, Smith will also have leadership and responsibility with the Active Learners Preschool, the Lions Park Pool, the Rainbow Club

and arts programming. “That’s the great thing about recreation is that every day is different,” she said. “You may have a plan, you may have a list of things to do, but every day is exciting.” Smith said she also enjoys the recreation field because it’s not a typical career path. There’s teamwork in volved every day and talking with other park districts to share ideas and implement resources. She said the Clarendon Hills Park District has several programs that offer countless benefits for the community, families and lifetime memories for kids that she looks forward to being a part of. “I started running at my park district at 6 and it paid for college, so you don’t know what you’re going to find in crafts projects, or fitness or at the preschool,” she said. “We offer so much as a resource for families to improve and benefit their lives.”

and issues relating to everyday activities such as pulling on the leash, not begging at the table and jumping. Proof of up-to-date vaccinations, current deworming or a negative fecal sample result are required. Aggressive dogs are asked not to attend.

I

believe a new start to the year is a good time to dispel some myths or incorrect thoughts and begin the year tackling problems we put off last year. One of those problems for you, your loved one, or good friend may be hearing difficulties. I often hear my patients tell me information they heard from others, even doctors, that prevented them from seeking the hearing help they need and deserve. Here are a few hearing myths from the Better Hearing Institute that may help:

The consequences of hiding hearing loss are better than wearing hearing aids. What price are you paying for vanity? Untreated hearing loss is far more noticeable than hearing aids. If you miss a punch line to a joke or respond inappropriately in conversation, people may have concerns about your mental acuity, your attention span, or your ability to communicate effectively. The personal consequences of vanity can be life altering. At a simplistic level, untreated hearing loss means giving up some of the pleasant sounds you used to enjoy. At a deeper level, vanity could severely reduce the quality of your life.

Hearing loss affects only “old people” and is merely a sign of aging.

Hearing aids will make me look “older” and handicapped.”

“Looking older” is often more obvious from several other factors than hearing aids. It’s not the hearing aids that make one look older, it’s other factors; such as, answering questions inappropriately (or not at all), diminished contribution to conversations, misunderstandings, and/or looking as if you are confused or irritated because of difficulty in hearing. If hearing aids help you function like a normal hearing person, for all intents and purposes, these stigma are minimized, if not removed altogether. Hearing If I had a hearing loss, my family doctor aid manufacturers are well aware that the cosmetics of hearing aids are a would have told me. big deal to many people, and that’s why hearing aid manufacturers have Not true! Only 14% of physicians routinely reduced their size and improved their appearance significantly these days. screen for hearing loss during a physical. Since However, as stated previously, an untreated hearing loss is often more obvisome people with hearing impairments hear well in a quiet environment like a doctor’s office, it can be virtually impossible for you physician to rec- ous than a hearing aid.

Without special training and an understanding of the nature said is far more noticeable and even embarrassing in many cases. These behaviors can make one of hearing loss, it may be difficult for your doctor to even realize that you have a hearing problem. appear confused, or worse yet, losing some of their cognitive abilities, which is far worse than the wearing of hearing devices. My hearing loss is normal for my age. I am concerned about the integrity of hearing health professionals and the value of hearing aids. Isn’t this a strange way to look at things? Do you realize that well-meaning doctors tell this to Rest assured in the research at the Better Hearing Institute with thousands of people like you their patients every day? It happens to be “normal” for overweight people to have high blood we found that hearing healthcare professionals receive customer satisfaction ratings of 92%. pressure. That doesn’t mean they should not receive treatment for the problem. And 9 out of 10 people indicate that the quality of their life has improved with hearing aids. Your hearing loss cannot be helped. Overall satisfaction with 1 year old hearing aids is now 78% which is close to satisfaction ratings In the past many people with hearing loss in one ear, a high frequency hearing loss, or those for most consumer electronics. with nerve damage have all been told they cannot be helped.

Only 35% of people with hearing loss are older than age 64. There are close to six million people in the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 44 with hearing loss, and more than one million are school age. Hearing loss affects all age groups.

Irritable Bowel, Celiac, Crohn’s or Colitis? Are you afraid to leave your house due to an unpredictable bowel? Have you tried diferent treatments but continue to sufer? Do you know the essentials for a healthy digestive system? Have you given up and decided to just live with it? he digestive system assimilates food (carbs, fats and proteins) to produce energy. It breaks down food into nutrient forms that your body can absorb. It uses enzymes, good bacteria and hydrochloric acid to break down food to a usable form. Your gut is a barrier, a tube that starts in your mouth, continues as your esophagus, small intestine, large intestine and rectum. 80% of your immune system is in your gut. When you break down the barrier (gut lining), toxins can “leak” into the blood stream leading to an immune response, inlammation and food allergies. Hippocrates, the father of medicine said… “look to the gut, there will you ind the origin of almost all human illness.”

Hi, my name is Dr. Jefrey E. Forzley with Lemont Natural Healthcare. I am a chiropractic physician and a holistic practitioner. I am passionate about helping people with chronic health conditions. I have been in practice for 28 years. As a holistic practitioner I evaluate the nervous system, immune system, endocrine system (hormones), diet essentials (Neuro-‐Metabolic Care), manage the underlying cause and use natural therapies to manage digestive disorders. here are many essentials required for proper digestion. Let’s talk about a few… Zinc is necessary to make hydrochloric acid (HCL). HCL is needed to break down food (protein) in the stomach and for production of methyl groups. Methyl groups turn on tumor suppressor genes and turn of oncogenes leading to potential cancer growth. If HCL is deicient, this results in poor digestion and a many imbalances due to a deiciency of methyl groups. HCL deiciency also leads to growth of pathological bacteria like H. Pylori, which can cause gastritis, stomach ulcers and possibly stomach cancer. Probiotics (good bacteria) are normally found in the gut. Optimal levels are needed for a proper functioning digestive system. hese probiotics are also part of your immune

system. hey play an important role in the protective barrier in your gut. Your gut makes up 80% of your immune system due to this barrier system. Antibiotics kill pathologic bacteria and infections but they also kill good bacteria and cause gut dysbiosis (imbalance). his dysbiosis can lead to pathologic bacterial, yeast and parasitic infections as well as food allergies. Digestive system inlammation is associated with IBS, Crohn’s, Celiac and Ulcerative Colitis. It is due to stress, poor diet, toxins and food allergies. Digestive inlammation leads to production of cytokines (inlammatory cells). hese cytokines travel in the blood to the brain and inlame the brain cells. he brain (mesencephalon) in turn controls the digestive system. his leads to a vicious cycle resulting in an inlammatory cascade which exponentially worsens over time. Successfully managing digestive conditions involves balancing the nervous system, digestive system and immune system as well as improving the diet, decreasing gut inlammation and detoxifying the body. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a digestive disorder that includes abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating and alternating constipation and diarrhea. he cause is unknown but theories include toxic overload, intestinal infections, inlammation from stress and poor diet generalized condition of the digestive system poor signaling from the brain to the digestive system for proper function.

Medications to treat digestive disorders can weaken your immune system and lead to infections and immune degenerative conditions including cancer. hese medications may give you symptom relief but have side efects and DO NOT ADDRESS the UNDERLYING CAUSE of your condition.

Testimonial As someone who lives with chronic nausea, poor digestion and anxiety, I assumed I was out of options when countless doctors told me that there was nothing else they could do for me. hey told me it was likely all in my head. hen I visited Dr. Forzley and he told me from the initial consultation that he was very conident he could help me. I was so excited that I cried. No other doctor has ever been so much on my side. Now, 8 weeks into treatment, I am nausea free, anxiety free and my digestion is normal. I have started living a life I never thought I could live. My body is a machine, slowed and dirtied by processed foods and environmental toxins. But with the help of Dr. Forzley, my body is on the way back to an optimal state for long term health and happiness. Veronica M.

Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity is a digestive condition that involves gluten sensitivity like Celiac Disease but is not an autoimmune disorder. It involves digestive symptoms (pain, bloating…), fatigue, joint pains as well as neurologic symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, poor memory, brain fog and diiculty concentrating. Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are autoimmune diseases. An autoimmune disorder is when your immune system attacks your body instead of protecting it. here is NO CURE for autoimmune disorders. But you can calm down the immune response NATURALLY and decrease the efects of the tissue destruction. If you have an autoimmune disease like Celiac, Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis and you do not balance and calm down the autoimmune destruction, your immune system can attack other tissues and cause multiple autoimmune disorders. It is common for people with an autoimmune disorder to have multiple autoimmune diseases for this reason. Medications are not always the long term answer.

30 minute consultation:

Holistic therapy can manage digestive conditions by: 1) inding and balancing the underlying cause and… 2) using natural therapies that work with your body.

Restaurant reviews

Antonino’s serves Italian hometown favorites LA GRANGE – My family and I have been dining at Antonino’s Ristorante in La Grange for as long as I can remember. In fact, there’s a good chance my first bite of restaurant Italian food – likely spaghetti – was consumed there. Antonino’s is a destination in La Grange, especially for commuters in the vicinity of La Grange’s Stone Avenue train station. Riders on the way home from work often can be seen making the detour into Antonino’s to pick up a pizza for the family. One of the best things about this restaurant is how little it has changed in the past 25 years. Its traditional Italian restaurant interior and the way the windows fog in the cold is something that always draws me back. Even the menu is largely the same – a special plus for my dining companion. Taking the family dinner to heart, I invited my brother to accompany me. Now, my brother is the kind of person who always orders the same thing. When he’s in the mood for Chinese, it’s General Tso’s chicken from Moy Goy Inn just down the street. When it’s a burger, a trip to Palmer Place is required. Breakfast? Well, that’s always at Cafe Calbay for a skillet made with corned beef hash, poached eggs and American cheese. But for Italian? There’s only one place: Antonino’s for spaghetti and meatballs. Besides Antonino’s pizza, I think it likely he’s never tried anything else on the menu. I set out to change that on our visit, but traditions die hard. To whet our appetite, we ordered two appetizers neither of us had tried in the past: fried calamari and bruschetta. The calamari was incredibly crispy, and the bruschetta was just the right amount of toasty goodness piled high with garlic, tomatoes and basil. Fantastic. For our entrees, I ordered the lasagna.

TheraCORE brings personal attention back to physical therapy Five years ago, two physical therapists opened TheraCORE, Therapeutic Center for Rehabilitation and Exercise, dedicated to building a treatment model based in comprehensive patient care and attention to the individual. Amy Goebbert and Jen Bazan had spent more than a decade in the field, and five years working for a large therapy chain, when they opened TheraCORE in Lockport. “It was just too corporate, says Goebbert of the large franchise environment. “We felt unable to maintain a level of patient care we felt good about.” Now in charge of their own private practice, the Bazan and Goebbert at their TheraCORE clinics in Lockport and Westmont offer a business model based on time, quality of care, with evidence based practice and good communication. “Everybody is on the same page during the treatment process,” she explains. “From this, we see excellent results. Patients are referred to us and we see them succeed where others have failed.”

To see a physical therapist at TheraCORE, patients need a prescription from their physician for medical coverage. Complimentary injury screenings are offered to assess treatment. “We can do a 20 minute screening, explain what we think is going on and refer you to a stretch, an exercise, or a physician,” Goebbert says. With a focus on whole body wellness, the professionals at TheraCORE are dedicated to not only treating, but also educating their patients about their health, through one-on-one consultations, step-by-step exercise programs, and ongoing wellness events for the community.

Find out more at an upcoming event: Family Fitness Challenge 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. A large number of TheraCORE’s patients come directly Sunday, February 9 from doctors.

“They know us well and appreciate the care we offer,” she says. “But most of our patients come referred by others. The word of mouth has been a great barometer of how our patients feel about their treatment at TheraCORE.” Five licensed physical therapists treat a variety of afflictions, from orthopedic injuries, to balance deficits, and even headaches. Specialty areas include: • Orthotic fabrication • Running, triathlete population • Hand therapy • Back treatment • Vestibular therapy • Massage therapy • Graston Technique® “We do a lot of manual therapy, hands on with the patients,” she says. “Things like joint mobilizations, massage. Everything we do is based on the latest evidence and it’s growing all the time. While patients are performing their exercises, we’re right there working on their form.”

Multiple itness and wellness stations including: nutrition, stretching, core and strength training, video fitness games, laser tag by Laser Quest, dance workouts, beach body workouts and much more. Each station will be staffed with a licensed physical therapist educated on wellness and exercise. Giveaways and prizes available Space is limited to the first 50 registrants Call 630-908-7430 to register.

TheraCORE has two convenient locations to serve you: 16622 West 159th Street, Suite 503 Lockport, IL 815-838-5070 350 East Ogden Avenue, Suite 200 Westmont, IL 630-908-7430 www.theracorept.com

Exercise benefits the brain, too

R

egular exercise can benefit the body in many ways, helping men and women maintain healthier weights and lower their risks for developing potentially deadly diseases. Though many people are quick to associate exercise with its physical benefits, those hours spent on the treadmill also can boost brain power. According to Dr. Barry Gordon, professor of neurology and cognitive science at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and coauthor of “Intelligent Memory: Improve the Memory That Makes You Smarter,” exercise has a direct impact on the brain. That’s because exercise works directly on brain tissue, improving the connections between nerve cells, creating new synapses, growing new neurons and blood vessels, and improving cell energy efficiency. So while many people may begin an exercise regimen with a goal of trimming their waistlines or toning their bodies, they might be happy to know that those physical benefits are accompanied by several cognitive benefits as well. As the American Psychological Association acknowledges, the connection between exercise and mental health is hard to ignore, and the APA notes that the following are just a few of the mental benefits men and women might reap from regular exercise. Improved mood Many people feel great after exercising, especially if that exercise comes at the end of a particularly stressful day. However, those extra laps on the track or those hours spent on the treadmill don’t just pay shortterm dividends. In a controlled trial overseen by Duke University researcher and clinical psychologist James Blumenthal, sedentary adults with major depressive disorder were assigned into one of four groups: supervised exercise, home-based exercise, antidepressant therapy, or a placebo pill. Those in the exercise and antidepressant groups had higher rates of remission than those in the placebo group, and Blumenthal concluded that exercise was generally comparable to antidepressants for men and women with major depressive disorder. In addition, in following up with patients a year later, Blumenthal found that those who continued to exercise had lower depression scores than those participants who were less active. Blumenthal’s study was not the only one to conclude that exercise can have a positive impact on mood. In a review of 11 studies that examined the effects of exercise on mental health, Boston University professor of psychology Michael Otto and his colleagues found that exercise could be a

powerful tool when treating clinical depression, and even recommended clinicians include exercise as part of their treatment plans for depressed patients. Antidote to anxiety Some researchers, Otto included, have begun to examine the effects of exercise on treating and possibly preventing anxiety. The body’s nervous system responds quickly when people feel frightened or threatened, often causing the body’s heart rate to increase and sweating and dizziness to occur. Those people who are especially sensitive to anxiety respond to these feelings with fear, and that makes them more likely to develop panic disorders. But Otto and fellow researcher Jasper Smits of the Anxiety Research and Treatment Program at Southern Methodist University studied the effects that regular workouts might have on people prone to anxiety. Since exercise produces many of the same physical reactions, such as sweating and an elevated heart rate, the body produces when responding to fear or threats, Otto and Smits wanted to determine if exercise might help people prone to anxiety become less likely to panic when experiencing fear or threats. In studying 60 participants with heightened sensitivity to anxiety, Otto and Smits found that the subjects who participated in a two-week exercise program exhibited marked improvements in anxiety sensitivity compared to those participants who did not take part in the exercise program. Otto and Smith concluded that this improvement was a result of the exercise group participants learning to associate the symptoms common to both fear and exercise, such as sweating and an elevated heart rate, with something positive (exercise) instead of something negative (anxiety). Regular exercise benefits the human body in numerous ways, not the least of which is its impact on the brain. More information on the link between exercise and improved mental health is available at www.apa.org.

These snacks pack an energetic punch

M

any adults find themselves feeling drowsy in the hours after they eat lunch. A heavy lunch, a staid office atmosphere or a combination of the two can make professionals feel sleepy as the workday winds down. Though some might opt for a second cup of coffee, the immediate energy boost provided by caffeine quickly wears off, leaving men and women feeling even more tired as a result. Oftentimes, the right mid-afternoon snack can provide the energy boosts adults need to stay productive throughout the workday. The following are a handful of healthy snacks that tend to provide a lot of energy. * Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt has become increasingly popular in recent years, as more and more people are opting for this snack that’s rich in calcium, protein, phosphorous, and zinc. Traditional yogurt tends to provide a quick energy boost, as it is generally easy to digest, before that boost quickly fades. Greek yogurt is thicker than traditional yogurt, so it does not digest so easily, producing more sustained energy levels as a result.

However, Greek yogurt is also loaded with protein, helping men and women feel fuller longer. That can be beneficial for those who want to lose weight, as the feeling of fullness that Greek yogurt provides means those who eat it are less likely to eat more snacks throughout the day. * Whole grains: Whole grain snacks are loaded with energizing ingredients, including fiber, iron, magnesium, and protein. Whole wheat snacks are also loaded with B vitamins, which help people fight fatigue and stabilize blood sugar levels. In addition, the body takes longer to absorb the complex carbohydrates found in whole wheat snacks, which means the body can maintain stable blood sugar levels for extended periods of time, and that leads to a long-lasting energy boost. White bread and simple carbohydrates provide an immediate, yet temporary, energy boost when people’s blood sugar levels spike. But once that initial energy boost subsides, men and women will be left feeling fatigued. * Edamame: Many people may know edamame from recipes, but

few might know edamame can be an energy-boosting snack as well. Edamame are boiled soybeans that are rich in protein, iron, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber. Each of these things helps the body sustain energy levels. In addition, edamame is also packed with a trace mineral known as molybdenum that helps cells function properly while enhancing alertness and improving concentration. * Almonds: Almonds are loaded with ingredients that increase energy levels, including vitamin E, phosphorous, vitamin B2, and magnesium, which serves numerous beneficial functions, including aiding in the production of energy and relieving stress and anxiety. Because they are rich in protein and fiber, almonds take longer for the body to digest, which means energy levels will stay up for longer periods of time than they would for those snacks that are easily digested. Almonds also contain healthy fats that curb appetite, making it less likely that men and women who snack on almonds will overeat and find themselves fighting the fatigue that’s often a byproduct of overeating.

Tips for yoga beginners

T

hough it might once have been considered a trend, yoga has long since moved on from trendy territory to become a more widely accepted discipline that is practiced by millions for its positive impact on mental and physical health. Though yoga is an ancient practice, only recently has it become so popular in the western hemisphere, where Sports Marketing Surveys found that roughly 20 million Americans over the age of 18 practiced yoga in 2012. That's a considerable increase from just four years earlier, when just under 16 million Americans admitted to practicing yoga. The growing popularity of yoga likely comes as no surprise to its many practitioners, who often credit yoga with relieving stress and improving overall fitness. In addition, yoga can also help alleviate chronic pain and, according to the Mayo Clinic, reduce risk factors for chronic conditions such as heart disease and high blood pressure. While yoga is beneficial in many ways, it's important that men and women not mistake yoga for medical treatment. Though yoga may be part of an individual's treatment plan, it's still necessary that men and women with medical conditions rely on their health care providers for treatment. For example, doctors may recommend yoga to individuals dealing with elevated stress levels, but doctors also may want their patients to take certain medications in order to lower those stress levels. Yoga on its own may be effective, but men and women should still seek professional medical treatment when dealing with health problems. It's also important that men and women beginning a yoga regimen not take it lightly. Though the atmosphere in a typical yoga studio tends to be serene, yoga is a physically demanding discipline, and those unprepared to deal with such demands often find themselves suffering from injuries. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, injuries to the neck, shoulders, spine, legs, and knees are possible when practitioners of yoga do not exercise proper technique and caution. So it pays for beginners to heed the following warnings when beginning a yoga regimen. * Work with a professional. No matter how long your neighbor insists he or she has practiced yoga, it's still best that you learn the discipline from a

certified instructor. Your neighbor might know all of the poses, but an instructor with credentials can help men and women with preexisting medical conditions avoid poses that can exacerbate such conditions. Novices might not know that certain poses can increase injury risk for sufferers of osteoporosis, spinal problems and high or low blood pressure. When trying yoga for the first time, always work with a professional, making sure to discuss any preexisting medical conditions before your initial session. * Take things slowly. Its reputation as a calming discipline often gives beginners the mistaken impression that yoga is an easy discipline to grasp. However, it's best for beginners to take things slowly before attempting to perform difficult stretches and poses. Yoga is not a competition, so give yourself adequate time to learn proper breathing techniques and figure out ways to maintain your balance. Once you have mastered such techniques, you can then begin to try your hand at more advanced poses. * Warm up before each session. Men and women should warm up before beginning any exercise regimen, and yoga is no exception. Stiff, cold muscles can lead to serious injury whether you're playing basketball or stretching into a yoga pose. Warm up your muscles with a few minutes of light cardiovascular exercise before beginning a yoga session to reduce your risk of muscle tears or pain when you start stretching or posing. * Dress appropriately. Flexibility is essential when practicing yoga, so make sure your clothing is not restrictive. Women can buy pants made specifically for yoga that stretch easily, making it easier to perform various poses and stretches. Men may also be able to find pants made specifically for yoga, but if not, athletic shorts or track pants can work just as well. * Stop if you feel any physical problems. It is not uncommon, especially for beginners, to experience feelings of dizziness or feel as if your body is becoming overheated during yoga. In such instances, stop immediately, as yoga is supposed to be a pain-free discipline. Ask the instructor for help the moment you start to feel faint, dizzy, overheated, or injured. Physical problems during yoga may be a byproduct of dehydration, so be sure to begin your session fully hydrated and remain so throughout your workout.

Salary cap could haunt the Bears As the Bears Vice President of Football Administration, General Counsel and lead contract negotiator Cliff Stein is one of the best “capologists” in the NFL. Nobody understands the salary cap or knows how to work with it better than Stein, and there are no better negotiators in the NFL either. I can’t remember the last time the team targeted a free agent, convinced him to come to Chicago and Stein couldn’t fit him under the cap. Still, the Bears will begin the 2014 NFL league year in a bit of salary cap hell and there’s very little Phil Emery and Stein can do about it without some painful cuts to the current roster. The 2013 Salary cap was approximately $123 million and early projections are that it could go as high as $127 million in 2014. But of the current Bears under contract, nine Bears veterans, Jay Cutler, Julius Peppers, Brandon Marshall, Matt Forte, Lance Briggs, Jermon Bushrod, Martellus Bennett,

There goes another $11.5 million in cap space, leaving $30.5 million and the club is still looking for starters at Hub Arkush center, defensive end, defensive tackle, possibly one or two linebacker spots, at least one cornerback, safety, nickel back, punter and 28 reserves. It’s a serious mess and none of it is Tim Jennings and Robbie Gould are occupying approximately $85 million of Stein’s fault. It is the price of failing badly in the NFL College Draft during cap space according to spotrac.com. the past four to five seasons. Forget If the $127 million figure proves going back further than that as any accurate that will leave Stein just $42 players drafted prior to the last four million to spread among 44 players or five years would be in their second and that will be an impossible task contracts and have higher cap values. if the Bears hope to add any proven The only significant starters with talents via free agency. star potential on the Bears roster right Shea McClellin, Alshon Jeffery, now who were drafted in the last five Matt Slauson, Kyle Long, Jordan Mills, Stephen Paea, Jonathan Bostic and Kha- years are Jeffery and Long.

into out years of his deal and almost certainly will have to, potentially creating as much as $10 million of extra room. But what if Cutler doesn’t work out or gets hurt? Then your cap is strangled even worse in a few years if you have to replace him and carry dead cap money. The Bears will also have to cut or restructure the deals of Peppers and Michael Bush, which will save about $12 million of cap space if they cut them, but they will then have to add another starting defensive end who will need to be a premier pass rusher and a dependable number two running back. Emery and Marc Trestman have said their goal is to make the Bears younger on defense. Some part of that goal is borne out of need to deal with their cap issues. But the reality is getting younger and getting better, with limited financial resources to make up for any missed draft picks is a truly difficult situation to be in.

tackles and an inability to pressure the quarterback, among other struggles. Tucker should be able to help with the new hires to coach the linebackers and D-line, as he gets a chance to put more of a mark on this defense. “We believe Mel is the right person to lead our defensive unit,” Trestman said. “He fully understands where we need to improve, has the skill set and leadership to oversee the changes that need to be made and to execute our plan to get the results we know are necessary.” Trestman and Phil Emery were firm in their stance that, when healthy in the first three games, the defense played at a high level. That showed the faith they have in Tucker as a coordinator,

and he could be working with completely different personnel next season. Tim Jennings, Stephen Paea and Briggs are the only regulars that should be back at their positions in 2014. Major Wright, Corey Wootton, Melton, James Anderson, Williams, Charles Tillman, Jeremiah Ratliff and Collins are all free agents. The futures of Chris Conte and Peppers are in question, and McClellin and Bostic could be at different positions. With Tucker getting another year to prove himself, expect to see a more aggressive defense. “We want a physical, fast, playmaking defense, a defense that causes disruption,” Emery said. One game that sticks out as a potential blueprint of the

Bears’ 2014 defensive style is the win in Pittsburgh in Week Three. According to Pro Football Focus, Ben Roethlisberger was under pressure on 20 plays, six more than any other Bears opposing quarterback. They blitzed Big Ben 19 times, tied for the most all season. After halftime, Roethlisberger started finding success under pressure, but the aggressive defense was too much. The Bears forced five turnovers in that 40-23 win. As bad as the defense was, the Bears were a play away from winning the NFC North, which made the meltdown on that side of the ball all the more frustrating. Tucker gets another chance, and even though the coordinator is the same, expect the Bears’ defense to look much different next season.

The worst defense in Bears history cost two assistant coaches their jobs, but the leader of the unit will be back in 2014. Linebackers coach Tim Tibesar and defensive line coach Mike Phair were fired but defensive coordinator Mel Tucker will return. “We thank Mike and Tim for their effort and dedication. They are men of high character and integrity,” Bears head coach Marc Trestman said in a statement Sunday. “These are not easy decisions and we do not attribute our lack of success on defense to two individuals.” Both Tibesar and Phair’s units were marred by injuries. Thrust into the lineup,

rookies Jon Bostic and Khaseem Greene did not show the improvement the team wanted to see, especially down the stretch. The Bears were last in the league in run defense. “I saw Khaseem do it right and Jon do it right, and I saw them both do it wrong,” Trestman said in his Jan. 2 news conference. “I did not see a consistency in their play.” On the D-line, Henry Melton and Nate Collins both tore their ACL, while Julius Peppers and Shea McClellin did not produce up to expectations off the edges. Someone was going to take the fall for a defense that allowed 6,313 net yards in 2013, and it went to the position coaches of the front seven, which made the same mistakes week after week: problems fitting the run, missed

By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – Rivalries are often built on familiarity between the two sides. Hinsdale Central and Lyons Township are no exception in boys basketball. Both teams are led by talented juniors, Hinsdale Central’s Matt Rafferty and LT’s Harrison Niego, and both players know each other very well since they are AAU teammates on the Chicago LockDown. The offseason teammates will be foes when the Red Devils host the Lions at 7:30 p.m. Friday. “I think it will be fun,” Rafferty said of playing against Niego and LT. “It’s always fun to play against your buddies and battle against them. I’m excited to play against him.” While Niego, a guard, and Rafferty, a forward, won’t match up against each other very often, both are the top players on their respective teams. Both players have Division I offers on the table. “I think it would be a little tougher if we were going to have to guard each other,” Rafferty said. LockDown is run by Niego’s father Joe, who was drafted by the Houston Rockets in 1987, and coached by St. Viator varsity coach Mike Howland. The program was started in 2011 and has started to gain notoriety, thanks in part to Harrison Niego and Rafferty, who are both featured on the team’s website. “We’ve been together since eighth grade. We’ve played the past couple summers together and we’ve had great success,” Harrison Niego said. “It’s been a lot of fun with those guys. A bunch of good players that are doing well this year.” The Lions and Red Devils enter Friday’s game in Hinsdale with matching 3-1 records

Next game Who: Lyons Township at Hinsdale Central What: West Suburban Silver conference game When: 7:30 p.m. Friday Where: 5500 Grant St., Hinsdale in the West Suburban Silver. While Rafferty said they haven’t talked much about playing each other – not yet at least – bragging rights that will last through the summer are on the line. “I don’t like to lose to those guys,” Niego said. “It will always get brought up once or twice in the summer. Whoever wins or loses, we’ll get at each other a little bit. It’s all fun. I love playing against those guys, and those guys are real good players.” The Red Devils split a pair of games last weekend. They kept pace in the WSS race with a 64-53 win against Proviso West on Jan. 10 before giving highly regarded St. Viator a battle in an 82-73 loss Jan. 11. While a win against the Lions would be nice in terms of bragging rights for Rafferty and the Red Devils, a victory would be more important in terms of keeping up with York in the WSS and building toward postseason success. Rafferty has a good idea of what it will take to win now and in the postseason. “It all starts at the defensive end,” Rafferty said. “If we play solid defense, get stops and guard, we’ll be fine.”

Hinsdale Central’s Gabrielle Rush drives to the basket Jan. 11 in a game against Lyons Township. Rush matched her own school record with 39 points in the Red Devils’ 66-57 win.

Rush matches record in Red Devils’ win By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com LA GRANGE – Hinsdale Central fell to rival Lyons Township once this season, but Gabrielle Rush made sure her squad wasn’t going to lose to LT again. Rush scored 39 points, matching the school record for points in a game that she set in the first game of this season, to propel the Red Devils to a 66-57 win Jan. 11. In the final seconds of the game, members of the Red Devils’ bench were trying to communicate to get Rush the ball while LT was fouling. Even a split at the free throw line would have given her an even 40 and a new school record. Instead, she had to settle

for tying her own mark. The Lions burst out to a 9-2 lead, but Central gradually got back into the game and eventually tied the score at 17-17 in the second quarter. Rush scored the final six points of the second quarter to give the Red Devils a 28-25 halftime lead. The Red Devils led by as many as 13 and held off a late run from the Lions. “We had a tough game last night,” Central coach Tom McKenna said of a 51-28 loss to Proviso West. “We were struggling a little bit with [Madeleine Roglich] out. On the road, it was a great win for us. We got down 9-2 and we pretty much controlled the game [from there].” McKenna had good things to say about the two freshmen,

Paige Bareck and Riley Burr, that were called up to varsity in the middle of the season. They have added depth to a team that has needed it since Roglich’s injury. The Red Devils are 3-3 in the West Suburban Silver and fell to 10-6 overall following Tuesday’s 63-33 loss to New Trier. Central has upcoming games against Andrew at 6 p.m. today as part of the McDonald’s Shootout at Willowbrook and a conference game against Glenbard West, which is still winless in the league, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. “Numerically, we still have a shot at the conference championship,” McKenna said. “We’re kind of retooling because we lost two starters, but I feel good.”

ADDISON – What a way to bounce back. After suffering back-to-back losses to West Suburban Gold conference rivals Willowbrook and Proviso East, Hinsdale South’s girls basketball team responded with a 48-24 win against host Addison Trail on Jan. 11. It was a much needed win for the Hornets as they looked to keep pace with the Warriors and Pirates, the two teams ahead of them in the WSG. “Willowbrook’s good, Proviso East is good, and with a couple losses to them, we have to hope we can get them when we play them on the road,” South head coach Jen Belmonte said. If the Hornets, who improved to 8-10 overall and 4-2 in the conference with the win, compete against Willowbrook and Proviso East like they did against the Blazers, they will be in the thick of the WSG race. Addison Trail went up 4-0 early in the game, but South closed the frame with an 11-0 run and never trailed again. A 21-13 halftime lead swelled to 38-22 entering the fourth quarter. “We had four points in the first quarter and two in the fourth,” AT coach Rob Schader said. “You’re not going to win many games doing that.” The comfortable win allowed Belmonte to audition

“Willowbrook’s good, Proviso East is good, and with a couple losses to them, we have to hope we can get them when we play them on the road.” Jen Belmonte South head coach for the role of post player. The coach said she has had Ondreaonna Tribble, Cassie Jensen, Abby Lewis and Larhonda Dobbs all man the post throughout the season, and all played well against the Blazers. Lewis tallied five points, Tribble had three and Jensen scored two, and Dobbs grabbed several rebounds as the Hornets won the board battle by 14. South was scheduled to host WSG rival Leyden on Thursday before playing Downers Grove North at that school’s Winter Classic Shootout at 11:30 a.m. Saturday.


Each basketball season provides an opportunity for new players to step into the spotlight. From juniors and seniors seeing significant playing time for the first time to underclassmen making an impact, these girls basketball players are having breakout seasons.

varsity debut this season but had to wait a little bit to make an impact. An injury to MacKenzie Kern, South’s top outside shooter, led to Simpson seeing more playing time and she is scoring 12 points per game. “She’s a natural scorer, but what’s impressive about her is she’s learning something new everyday, about how she can get better,” South coach Jen Belmonte said. “We didn’t know what to expect from the junior class, but she’s done a great job for us.”

that Gabrielle Rush is the star of the Red Devils, but Central relies on a young supporting cast around the prolific junior guard. Gurka has been a key senior for the team. “I think Abby Gurka has done a nice job,” Central coach Tom McKenna said. “She does all the little things, getting loose balls, getting rebounds, playing under control.”

Sydney Kopp

Addyson Wesolowski

School: Hinsdale South Class: Sophomore Position: Guard Impact: The Hornets’ top reserve a season ago, Kopp has emerged as a key two-way player this season. The team’s primary ball-handler and top defender, Kopp has started every game this season and is averaging 11.9 points per game. “She kind of does everything,” South head coach Jen Belmonte said. “She takes the other team’s best player on defense and we’re always trying to have the ball in her hands when it’s a close game. She’s playing really well and I think she’s only going to get better as she grows.”

School: Downers Grove South Class: Freshman Position: Guard Impact: Wesolowski was already playing up a level when the season started as a freshman on the sophomore team, and due in part to injuries and her solid play, she recently moved up to join the varsity squad.

r. Martin Luther King Jr. was a preacher, a father, a scholar and one of the strongest voices of peace and freedom in American history. King was the youngest man to win the Nobel Peace Prize, at the age of 35. He was an activist and leader in the civil rights movement who pushed for equal rights and acceptance for all people, no matter their race or background. King is known for his leadership and effectiveness using nonviolent measures, meaning that instead of going to war with his enemies, or using violence to further his cause, he sought to change the world through peace.

As he said in his Nobel acceptance speech: “But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace. It solves no social problem; it merely creates new and more complicated ones. Violence is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding; it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love.”King continually preached a message of peace and love over hatred and violence.
