Smith said once Hinsdale Middle School is re-opened, there is still some work that needs to be done, such as painting and re-applying baseboards. But that work will not affect students or staff as it will be completed after hours and on weekends, he said.

tively set to open Monday, the board did discuss how long the split schedule should continue if something unforeseen takes place. “I think we need to move forward so the community knows there’s a plan in place if the work isn’t finished,” said Jill Vorobiev, school board vice president. After a discussion of possible options, the board directed administration to develop a plan to hold classes at National Louis University in Lisle should the work be delayed. “If the community will tolerate students getting on a bus and going to National Lewis University, that is the recommendation,” Schuster said.

HINSDALE – Hinsdale Middle School’s closure because of mold appears to be getting closer to an end, but a new hurdle recently arose with the discovery of asbestos in “very low percentages” at the school. At Monday’s business meeting at Elm School, officials said it’s unlikely that any students or staff would have been exposed to airborne asbestos, and the testing by Integrity Environmental Services shows no reason to be concerned about asbestos exposure. “The rooms were cleaned three times now, there will be a fourth, and we feel confident there was never an issue [with asbestos] in those rooms,” Mark Ravanesi, president of IES, said at the meeting. In early January, the district addressed water damage at Hinsdale Middle School and worked throughout the affected areas of the building to soak up water and remove items that had been water damaged. On Jan. 7, risers covered with vinyl tiles were removed from the music room (room 124) because of water damage. A small number of the tiles were broken during the removal. The room was cleaned by

HINSDALE – Mold eradication continued to progress this week at Hinsdale Middle School with cleaning expected to be completed Saturday, air quality testing to be conducted Sunday and a tentative re-opening set for Monday. “We’re still on target for Sunday open house and then Monday resuming school, however, we won’t have [air quality] results back until Sunday night, so we are having conversation on whether we should give it a day to let everyone know the result,” Superintendent Renee Schuster said. Bridget McGuiggan, District 181 director of communications, said Thursday morning that the school is still on pace to open Monday, but the district is asking families and staff to be prepared to be at either Hinsdale or Clarendon Hills middle schools Monday. “It’s looking like we’re on target, but it may work better to have staff have the time on Monday to get prepared and do the open house Monday night,” McGuiggan said. “So far our best date is looking like open house Sunday, school Monday.” Edward Smith, project manager with SERVPRO, said at Monday’s business meting that the company re-insulated and installed everything throughout the school. “It equals to about two miles of drywall replacement,” Smith said.

Winterfest returns to Oak Brook By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com OAK BROOK – You could say we’ve been spoiled the last couple seasons as the winter sweater weather of years’ past has now become a distant memory with words such as “polar vortex” and “Arctic blast” being used frequently. Mother Nature will keep the bitter temperatures around for a while, but that’s not stopping the Oak Brook winter event from celebrating its 51st year. The Oak Brook Park District will present Winterfest, for all ages, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. today at Central Park West.

Ravanesi said the likelihood of a fiber release in the school is “extremely remote at best.” “We continue to agitate the air and to find absolutely no structures, which incidentally the clearance criteria could be met with some asbestos fibers found, we found zero and there’s been wind, air, blowing around in those rooms since Day 1,” he said. School board president Marty Turek said asbestos is a scary word when people hear it and was glad Ravanesi could address the issue. “It sounds like you guys went above and beyond, which I appreciate,” Turek said.

Your 1099s require special attention this year. Your tax exempt interest is now included on your 1099 INT and your tax exempt dividends from mutual funds should be on your 1099DIV. In addition, brokerage firms often send out initial – and then revised – tax statements. Your 1099B will show the gross proceeds of your stock or mutual fund sale. Even if you transferred from one fund to another (or if you changed funds for your children), it is still considered a sale in the eyes of the IRS. You must figure out the cost basis of the purchase; this may be shown in Box 3 but may or may not be correct! This requires some (or all) of the following: • Date and Cost at purchase • Dividend reinvestments if any • Fair market value at date of death for inherited investments. • Additional purchases (or prior sales) The IRS will now be tracking cost basis shown on 1099Bs and comparing it to what is shown on your tax return. STRAUSS TAX SERVICE can check all your 1099s. We will prepare your 2013 tax return, answer your many questions for 2014 and save you money.

Road to recovery

“The problem is you’ve got these baby oaks down here, or the seedlings, and they’re not getting any light,” he said. “The reason why they’re not getting any light is because of these invasives. If we don’t have any oak seedlings now, we won’t have any big oaks in the future.” Removing the invasive plants will support an array of wildlife and provide “impressive views” of the wildflowers come spring. Invasives are also creating problems at Musk Turtle Marsh as the plants are clogging the marsh, preventing anything else from growing. Birds that rely on the area for nesting and breeding are avoiding the area, and the musk turtle has all but disappeared.

Beet juice helps fight ice By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – So far, this winter has been harsh compared to the milder seasons of recent years. It’s not just the frigid temperatures, but an accumulation of ice and snow have made road and sidewalk conditions a safety concern for both residents and public services. But Old Man Winter is now facing an uncommon foe in the form of a vegetable – beets. Some villages, including Hinsdale, have used beet juice on roads to combat ice. Beet juice doesn’t freeze when temperatures fall below zero degrees, and, when combined with traditional salt, improves road conditions. “We have tried that product, but it’s a tad expensive,” said George Franco, director of Hinsdale Public Services. “It helps the salt from skipping

too far because it’s liquefied and it goes over the salt before it’s dropped.” Franco said beet juice is like a calcium chloride, but it’s more of a natural-based product making it better for the environment. Recently, DuPage County Storm Water Management has encouraged residents and villages to reduce the use of road salt this winter because of its environmental harm. The effort is to decrease the chloride concentrations in DuPage County waterways, according to a SWM news release. According to a 2012 report from the Illinois State Water Survey, chloride concentrations in Illinois waterways have been steadily increasing since the 1960s. Much of this is attributed to road salts that are used during the winter months, according to the release. The salt is then carried into

storm drains and streams via stormwater runoff. Once in the waterways, chlorides don’t dissipate and can be harmful to aquatic life. “We don’t use a lot of salt just because we don’t like the environmental impact,” Franco said. “But we use it at intersections, our hills, our curbs, around our school zones, hospitals, but where traffic [is lighter], say on a very secluded side street for an example, we’ll just do a little at the intersection and maybe a little bit in the middle of the block where the fire hydrants are.” Franco said the cost of salt is about $49 a ton, while beet juice is $1 to $1.26 per gallon. He said a village may spray 8 gallons per ton on a single load depending on the different parameters in the village, but the effects are substantial.

Township leads effort to inform, provide cost-effective programs The Downers Grove Township has increased its efforts to provide updates and information about township services and programs that will help to make your lives a bit easier, and in some cases, may even save you money. For example:

COMMUNITY

Electricity aggregation:

This pending program will VOICE allow unincorporated area Laura residents and small business Hois owners in Downers Grove Township – who don’t opt out – to receive a lower-than-ComEd electric supply rate of 5.920 cents per kilowatt hour through the December 2014 meter read date from MC Squared Energy Services (mc2), the electricity supplier selected by the township after an extensive bidding process. More information about mc2 is available at www.dgtownship.com under the quick link “Electricity Aggregation.” The new Downers Grove Township Brochure: This publication describes the roles, responsibilities and services provided by the township supervisor, town clerk, trustees, assessor’s office, general assistance, highway department, human services and nonprofit foundations for senior citizens and two cemeteries. The brochure features a full-color map showing the township’s boundaries, which include the communities of Burr Ridge, Clarendon Hills, Hinsdale, Darien, Downers Grove, Lemont, Westmont, Willowbrook and Woodridge. The ongoing electronic recycling program: This valuable service provided by the Downers Grove Township Highway Department allows residents of township households to properly dispose of unwanted electronics – at no cost to taxpayers. If you live in the township, you may bring your old computers, laptops, monitors, keyboards, TVs, copiers, fax machines, phone systems, handheld devices and other electronic equipment to 318 E. Quincy St. in Westmont on the third Saturday of every month from 8 a.m. to noon. For further information, please call the Highway Dept. at 630-719-6625 or go to www.dgtownship.com. Coast2CoastRx discount cards: The township distributes free discount prescription cards in conjunction with WellDyne Rx to help consumers save money on prescription medications if their prescriptions aren’t covered by insurance. The discount cards may be used locally and across the nation at participating retail pharmacies. Discounts may vary depending upon the drug and quantity purchased.

Laura Hois is the town clerk of Downers Grove Township.

Adventist Hinsdale Hospital Chaplain Dan Ocampo labels a box of clothing for shipment to the Philippines on Jan. 6 at Fil-Am Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Hinsdale.

Dan Ocampo, a chaplain at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, recently organized a relief effort for his native Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan devastated the island nation. Adventist Hinsdale, along with other hospitals within Adventist Midwest Health, donated medical supplies, hygiene items, clothing and food. Volunteers then gathered at Fil-Am Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Hinsdale and packed the supplies for victims. This one goes out to the mold at Hinsdale Middle School. The persistent fungus created health concerns and prompted District 181 to arrange a split schedule with Clarendon Hills Middle School. Crews have been working for the past several weeks to clean up the affected areas so staff and students can return to the school as soon as possible.

to start the recovery of Waterfall Glen. Oldenburg said come March or April, the change will be evident to visitors of the forest preserve as the “curtain,” or the first 15 to 20 feet of the forest that’s comprised largely of invasive species, will be cleared out creating a more open look. “The most dramatic effect will be the increase in light into the forest floor, so it will be a brighter penetration of light down into the forest floor,” Oldenburg said. “In general, we’ll see a lot great-

er diversity of ground plants and that in turn will create an increase in insect populations as well as bird utilization in those areas.” After the removal of invasive plants, herbicides will be applied to nonnative plants in the marsh and woods to suppress any regrowth. The district will restock native shrubs, trees and flowers, and also use a controlled burn program. Those phases of restoration will continue for two to three years, but change will be clear this spring. “The cool thing is in this area we’re going to see an immediate change,” Fuller said. “All kinds of wild flowers are going to pop up here.”

Substitute teachers to get paid more in D-181 By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – Low pay is believed to be the main culprit for the short supply of substitute teachers in District 181, prompting administration and the Board of Education to take action. “I’m just worried about losing additional people,” Doug Eccarius, assistant superintendent of human resources,

said at Monday’s Board of Education business meeting. “We are one of the lowest paying districts for substitutes and so a lot of our substitutes are waiting to hear from other districts.” Eccarius said the district currently pays $84.10 per day for substitutes, and $100.92 per day for retired District 181 teachers who substitute. District 181 surveyed about 30 school districts regarding

substitute pay, and of those which responded, the range was from $80 to about $165 (after 10 days). “It’s very challenging right now and the most common thing we hear from people that either aren’t returning or will not take [jobs] is that it’s very easy to get paid higher in another district,” Eccarius said. The district used to pay about $94 per day for substi-

tutes and $112.92 for retired District 181 teachers. But because of budget concerns in 2010, substitute pay was decreased. “With that what we’ve seen is that our substitute pool has gone down each year and we’re down to between 140 and 150 subs on our list this year, but outside of that there’s only about 40 that actually take regular substitute requests from us,” he said.

At Monday’s meeting, the board unanimously approved a pay increase for substitute teachers (Gary Clarin was absent from the vote) to $95 per day for substitutes and $114 per day for substitutes who are District 181 retired teachers. That pay increase will take effect Feb. 1. “I don’t know if this is the long-term solution to solve it, but I think it will make it better,” Eccarius said.

Plowing needed I think it is absolutely shameful that the village of Westmont cannot do anything with the sidewalks along Cass Avenue, particularly going south on 55th Street. These people that use the sidewalks to get to where they’re going, they don’t have a car so they are walking on Cass Avenue and the cars are trying not to hit them. You can’t take a Bobcat or something and go down the sidewalk and clear a little bit of a path? I’m sure the village of Westmont will say the loss of home rule is to blame for that because that’s their common excuse for everything. But it is absolutely shameful. They should be ashamed of themselves.

3. Snack attack BURR RIDGE – The average football player burns more than 2,000 calories during a football game, but for the millions of Americans who will be watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, the average intake can be about 1,500 calories with the food and drinks consumed. Erik Knowles, fitness director at Five Seasons Family Sports Club in Burr Ridge, said that’s “well in excess” of half of an adult man’s recommended daily calorie intake, which is 2,400, and for females it’s 2,000. Knowles said one day will not destroy your fitness goals, but just don’t let it turn in to a series of days. “It’s not necessarily what you do that day, it’s what you do six days before it and six days following it,” he said. For those who want to stay fit in a fun way on Super Bowl Sunday, Knowles developed this game plan.

1. Morning workout Most pre-game activities don’t start until noon, so Knowles advises to get in a morning workout with a goal of burning 600 to 800 calories in preparation for the high calorie snacks and drinks.

Pretzels and chips are the cornerstone of a traditional Super Bowl party. For a healthier option, Knowles advises to replace those with pita chips, flat bread, plantain chips, snack nuts and dried fruit. As for dips, Knowles said to use noncream-based dips like salsa and chili. A good trick is to also place snacks in smaller containers and purchasing smaller packages of snacks, he said.

4. Get creative While watching the game, Knowles said you can make creative “game” workouts within the Super Bowl itself, such as doing exercises like push-ups or sit-ups when possessions change, or when a team scores. For the ambitious, Knowles said you can do one push-up for every point after a score.

5. Select your team When working out in general, it’s a good idea to have a friend or partner help you stay motivated. Knowles referred to this person as part of your own “special team” who can help you overcome a weakness for the calorie-laden snack or beverage.

6. Have fun

Showcase SPOTL!GHT

2. Protein warm-up Much like a football player’s pre-game ritual, the same works for the Super Bowl fitness game. Knowles said to consume a protein shake about 30 minutes before kickoff. Doing so will curb

Knowles said the game is for those who want to stick to their fitness goals during a time that traditionally involves a heavy calorie intake, but said it’s important to know the game is not “sudden death” if you stumble.

HINSDALE – Subzero temperatures and dangerous wind chills hit the Hinsdale area Sunday night into Tuesday, forcing schools to close. According to the National Weather Service, temperatures hit a low of minus 11 early Tuesday morning, with wind chills as low as minus 30. Schools in the Chicago area, including districts 181 and 86, were closed. In addition, some government buildings closed early, including the Hinsdale Public Library, and programs and classes hosted by Hinsdale Parks and Recreation were canceled. The ice rink at Burns Field was also closed due to extreme cold temperatures. Metra lines were hit with major delays as temperatures impacted commutes for travelers. The cold snap wasn’t quite as frigid as the polar vortex that descended on the western suburbs Jan. 6 to 7. That freeze brought temperatures as low as minus 15 and wind chills as low as minus 45.

Residents look to raise funds to rebuild school OAK BROOK – A group of Oak Brook residents has partnered with Butler School District 53 to explore the option of creating a 501(c)3 to benefit the schools. The group is proposing the creation of The Oak Brook Children’s Education Foundation, which would allow Charitable Lead Trust contributions from families who might benefit from this estate planning strategy, according to a Butler School District 53 news release. The goal of this initiative is to raise enough money to substantially upgrade or possibly rebuild a new K-5 school to replace the current aging and outdated Brook Forest facility, the release said. While this initiative is being pursued, the District 53 Board of Education is proceeding with a three-year plan to invest $6 million in the current school

facilities to perform needed repairs. Planned work includes boiler replacements, roof repairs, communication upgrades, parking lot and field drainage/ regrading.

Geldner Center grand opening set for today HINSDALE – The Geldner Center for Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery, will host the grand opening of its Hinsdale office, located at 908 N. Elm St., Suite 314, from 4 to 7 p.m. today.

Champagne and hors d’oeuvres also will be served. All guests will receive a goody bag with a $50 gift card for use at the office as well as loyalty cards and more. For more information, or to RSVP for the grand opening, call the Geldner Center at 312-9814440.

HC grad named to ‘Rising Star’ lawyers list HINSDALE – James DuChateau, Hinsdale Central class of 1998, has been selected to the 2014 Illinois Rising Stars list. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor, according to a news release. DuChateau is an attorney with the Chicago office of Johnson & Bell. His practice areas include insurance and commercial litigation. He is a graduate of the John Marshall Law School and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The annual selections are made using a multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area, according to the release.

For comparison, in 2004, he said the county had less than five such cases. To combat the problem, the coalition announced the

launch of a new website, www. HeroinDuPage.org, and a social media campaign that presents a variety of information, such as the dangers of heroin, the state’s Good Samaritan law, treatment facilities

and resources for family and friends of addicts. In addition, it offered educators tool kits with similar information, encouraging them to bring the knowledge back to their school districts.

“We want to make this a lot more public, shine a spotlight on it so people will know where to get help and start the healing process,” said Grant Eckhoff, a member of the DuPage County Board and the coalition. County Coroner Richard Jorgensen said heroin is a problem all over the county and across all socioeconomic backgrounds. The only solution to the epidemic, Jorgensen said, is to change the dialogue and inform people. He has experienced the deadly impact of the drug first hand, he said, particularly on the county’s younger population.

Cody Lewis, now a 21-yearold recovering addict, said his first experience with heroin came in high school. “I tried it, and as soon as I felt that high from the heroin, it was like a void inside me was filled up,” he said. “Something that I was looking for my entire life, I found it in that little bag.” Lewis shared his story at the first of two forums hosted by the DuPage Coalition Against Heroin on Jan. 23 at the DuPage County Administration Building in Wheaton. The coalition, led by several county government entities, presented to both local educators and residents about the growing need for educating the community – especially children – about the dangers of heroin. The effort was funded, in large part, by a recent county budget allocation of $100,000 after the toll for heroin-related deaths in the county reached a record of 46 in 2013. Of the 206 pending drug possession cases in the county, 41

Restaurant reviews

Bakersfield gives fresh spin to American fare WESTMONT – With its open floor plan and California-style setting, Bakersfield gives west suburban diners a fresh experience, and some good food, too. The restaurant pairs its modern, airy atmosphere with a made-from-scratch menu that’s mostly American with accents from a number of cuisines. Bakersfield touts its homemade fare featuring fresh ingredients picked from just across Ogden Avenue at its sister store Standard Market, an upscale grocery that chose Westmont for its first location in 2011. A companion and I visited Bakersfield on a recent weeknight, a chilly evening that made complimentary valet service quite beneficial. As we entered the restaurant, our eyes immediately went to the far side, where diners can see a half-dozen or so chefs busy preparing the night’s dishes. The lack of a wall gives a peek into the preparation involved, especially appealing to foodies. The open setting continues throughout the restaurant, with a three-sided bar on one end and an elevated seating area on the opposite, although diners get an intimate experience with raised booths that are just tall enough. For starters, my date and I kicked off our meal with the Housemade Guacamole, a generous portion with chips and a side of salsa. Our server even offered refills. The guacamole was creamy and fresh, and the salsa had a nice hint of chipotle. If you’re a fan of Mexican cuisine, definitely give it a try. Other appetizer selections at Bakersfield include Pot Roast Sliders, Crispy Thai Shrimp and Blue Crab Dip. For her main course, my date, at first indecisive, opted for the pan-roasted Chilean Sea Bass. She loved the dish, and said it was just the right amount. I was confident in my selection – the Knife & Fork Fried Chicken. The chicken was

Schools typically observe National Catholic Schools Week with Masses, open house and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.

Catholic schools have a long-standing commitment to academic excellence that is rooted in the faith- based mission of Catholic education. The Common Core State Standards in no way compromise the Catholic identity or educational program of a Catholic school. The Common Core State Standards initiative, begun in 2007, is a state-led, bipartisan effort that is not a requirement for participation in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) or any other federally- funded program, and there are no mandates for any Catholic school to follow any federal rules if they adopt the Common Core. Adoption of the Common Core is voluntary; individual states, Catholic dioceses and other private schools make their own decisions about whether to adopt the standards. The Common Core State Standards are a set of high-quality academic expectations that all students should master by the end of each grade level. The standards establish consistent learning goals for all students that focus on preparing them to succeed in college and careers in a globally competitive workplace. The standards define and clearly communicate grade-specific goals and inform parents about learning outcomes, making it easier for parents to collaborate with teachers in helping their children achieve success. The Common Core State Standards are not a curriculum. A curriculum includes what is taught, when it is taught, how it is taught and what materials to use. None of these items are included in the Common Core State Standards. For Catholic schools, all of these elements will continue to be determined by diocesan superintendents, principals and teachers working to meet the needs of their students. The Common Core represents a fundamental shift in the teaching and learning process. The Common Core establishes clear, measurable goals for students that assist teachers in making instructional decisions. The standards place emphasis on creativity, critical and analytical thinking and application to curriculum content. The Common Core is not a national curriculum. It guides the way that instruction takes place in each classroom, allowing the Catholic school to develop its own curriculum content. An excellent Catholic school provides a rigorous academic curriculum that integrates faith and knowledge. As trained professionals, Catholic school administrators and teachers continually seek the best instructional methods for educating students. In the past, dioceses and schools have developed their own standards or adapted state standards for use with their own curriculum. Some will continue to do this. To assist those incorporating the new standards, the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) and partners in Catholic education established the Common Core Catholic Identity Initiative (CCCII). CCCII provides resources to design and direct the implementation of Common Core within the culture and context of a Catholic school curriculum. Thus Catholic schools can infuse the standards with the faith, principles, values and social justice themes inherent in the mission of a Catholic school. NCEA, the largest private professional education organization in the world, provides leadership, direction and service to its members through a variety of professional development activities that support whatever teaching and learning activities the individual school chooses implement. NCEA Position Statement on the Common Core State Standards May 31, 2013


Did you know? The Catholic Church is sometimes referred to as the largest charitable group in the world. Although specific data confirming this status is difficult to come by, the Church certainly does its share of philanthropic work. Data from the Center for Applied Research as well as the National Catholic Educational Association indicates that the nonprofit healthcare system sponsored by the Catholic Church includes 637 hospitals. The Church also operates 122 home healthcare agencies and nearly 700 additional service providers, including assisted living, adult day care and senior housing facilities. Catholic Charities USA consists of 1,400 agencies that operate soup kitchens, temporary shelters, child care centers, and refugee resettlement facilities.

The new theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2014 is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” The theme encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education. First, schools are communities— small families in their own right, but also members of the larger community of home, church, city, and nation. Faith, knowledge, and service are three measures by which any Catholic school can and should be judged. The new logo features a swirl of colors interacting around a cross, which is at the center of all Catholic education. The vibrancy of the colors and the movement and shadows in the logo portray the inner-connectivity and community life that are present in our Catholic schools.

How to improve test-taking skills

S

tudents are periodically tested to gauge their progress on a variety of subjects. Although testing can be an effective way to determine a student’s understanding of a given subject, not every student performs well on tests. Test-taking comes easily for some but not so for others. Nerves or trouble concentrating can foil the best students. However, there are ways for students to improve their test-taking skills.

Tours are available for interested families. Call the oice at 630/ 257-6488 ext. 21 ALL CLASSROOMS EQUIPPED WITH SMART BOARDS.

Preparation Most tests are given with prior notice, enabling students to prepare for them well in advance. Sometimes teachers and professors will surprise students with a quiz. These pop quizzes are used to judge how well students are absorbing the information and if they have been paying attention. When in class, continually jot down notes and create an outline of important information. The teacher may provide hints about the upcoming test, including emphasizing specific areas of focus or even revealing the format of the test. Contrary to what some students believe, teachers want their students to succeed. Therefore, your teacher may offer a review session the day before or be open for questions prior to the test if further clarification is needed. Studying with others can shed new light on a subject. Studying difficult subject matter with peers may help students grasp the materials better than they did in class. Classmates may have some tricks they’ve developed, including pneumonic devices for putting facts together. The day before and the day of the test Prior to a test, make sure you eat and get enough rest. While it may be tempting to pull an “all-nighter,” you will not perform well on the test if you are tired from having studied all night. Review the material and put the main ideas or

formulas onto a sheet that can be quickly reviewed. Review it many times and then put it away. Have a good meal, relax and try to get at least eight hours of sleep. On the day of the test, wake up and arrive on time or even a few minutes early for your class. This can help to calm your nerves and enable you to squeeze in some last-second studying. The test itself Make sure you have the supplies needed for the test. This may include pens or pencils, a calculator, a textbook if you are allowed to reference, or any other supplies the teacher allows. Have a watch available so that you can pace yourself during the test. Avoid using a mobile phone during the test, as the teacher may misinterpret that as cheating. Try to remain positive through the test. If you feel yourself getting nervous, take a few deep breaths and regroup. In addition to these tips, there are other ways to approach the test. * Do the easiest problems first. If you do not know a question, skip it and move on. There may be clues later on in the test that help you go back and answer skipped questions. * Always read the entire question. Skimming could find you missing important instructions. * Look for words that may help you determine the answer, such as “all,” “never” or “none”. They may present clues to the answer. * Pay attention to your work and only your work. Do not be distracted if others finish before you. * If there is time, go back and look over the test. Make sure that all the questions have been answered and check for any careless mistakes. Proofread any essays and short answer questions. Preparing well for a test, remaining calm and checking over your work can help students who struggle with test-taking do their best.

Immovable object vs. irresistible force at Super Bowl XLVIII NEW YORK – As Super Bowl matchups go it doesn’t get much better than Super Bowl XLVIII between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos. For starters, you’ve got the two best teams in the NFL without question as this is just the second time in the past 20 seasons that both the NFC’s and AFC’s top seeds have advanced to the playoffs. Perhaps more impressive, this is just the fifth Super Bowl in history and the first since the New York Giants played the Buffalo Bills following the 1990 season that the NFL’s top scoring team, Denver with 606 points has faced the leagues number one scoring defense, Seattle with 231 points allowed. It gets better. This is just the second time in Super Bowl history the league’s top team in total offense, Denver – 7,317 total yards, 457.3/game has faced the top defense, Seattle allowing just 4,378 total yards, 273.6/game. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said, “It’s historically as hard as it gets. It can’t get any tougher. They’ve done everything – broken every major

record in the throwing game, points and everything. Peyton’s (Manning) been extraordinary. He’s had the year that everyone would dream to have. We’re up against it.” Broncos head coach John Fox knows he’s got his hands full as well. “I think for the fans it’s an incredible matchup,” Fox said. “Watching them (Seattle) and knowing Pete Carroll for many years, I’ve got the utmost respect. They’ve done a lot in a short period of time. I think it’s a tribute to their personnel people. Their whole team has done a heck of a job.” Those Seahawk personnel folks Fox complimented found six Pro Bowlers including three of the four starting defensive backs in Seattle’s “Legion of Boom” secondary, Richard Sherman,

Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. They will anchor the key matchup in the game versus Denver Pro Bowlers Manning, guard Louis Vasquez, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, tight end Julius Thomas, former Pro Bowl wideout Wes Welker, Eric Decker and running back Knowshon Moreno. It’s almost impossible to remember a team with more weapons on offense than the record-setting Broncos. But don’t discount Seattle’s offense lead by a few Pro Bowlers of its own – center Max Unger, running back Marshawn Lynch and quarterback Russell Wilson. Lynch is the only player in the NFL to rush for more than 1,000 yards and score at least 10 touchdowns in each of the past three seasons. Wilson has won 27 games as a starting quarterback in the NFL, including three playoff games and is trying to join Kurt Warner and Ben Roethlisberger as the only quarterbacks in history to win a Super Bowl in his first or second season.

Upon arriving in New Jersey Manning said of Wilson, “I met Russell Wilson, believe it or not, when I was visiting the Broncos. I believe it was after I signed with the Broncos. They were having players come in for visits before the draft. I was actually in the film room watching some tape, and someone brought Russell in. I had a chance to shake his hand. I wished him luck and told him I enjoyed watching his college career.” Wilson knows he had a brush with greatness and seems to understand his place in the QB matchup. “They have an unbelievable quarterback in Peyton Manning. I have so much respect for him and what he’s done over his entire career. He deserves all of the credit. He’s an unbelievable quarterback and human being. “Just the energy in this area right now, in New Jersey. All of you guys (media) here in the New York area, it’s going to be a great scene. It’s going to be a great game. It’s going to be a battle to the end and I’m really looking forward to that game!”

release, something he honed with quarterbacks coach Jeff Christensen of Throw it Deep. Garoppolo said after the first practice that in terms of areas of improvement, coaches wanted him to work on his footwork, since he was “fairly new” to the 3-, 5- and 7-step drops. “It’s a repetition thing,” he said. “Once you start doing it so much, you get used to it.” Fisch acknowledged that it’s tough to work on a technique in only one week, but he seemed impressed with Garoppolo’s footwork. “I think his footwork’s been pretty good,” he said. “I think he’s done a nice job, throws with a nice face with good feet so it’s pretty neat to see.” Garoppolo knows that while he may have the moxie that coaches want in a quarterback, he needs to show he has the physical tools as well. “If you’re a leader, they’ll know you’re a leader by how you act on the field,” he said about the balancing act.

“If you can throw the ball, they’ll know that by the end of the day. You’ve just got to come out here, be yourself and compete.” A Bears fan, Garoppolo said Jay Cutler is his favorite Chicago quarterback. The two might differ in personality, but Cutler has plenty of confidence, something Garoppolo said he knows he needs to show during the draft process, and he can gain that more with his arm than his words. “If you belong, you belong. If you don’t, you’re going to stick out and people are going to know that you don’t belong,” he said. As the days went by in Mobile, Fisch saw a trend. Maybe Garoppolo read the articles about his rising draft stock, but more likely, he saw what he was capable of against top competition. “Each day, I have noticed a trend in a way, that his confidence has continued to improve and therefore his charisma has showed up,” Fisch said. “He has a nice presence about himself.”

MOBILE, Ala. – Regardless of what the unknown team sought when asking Jimmy Garoppolo, “Name as many things as you can do with a brick in a minute,” the personnel folks probably were impressed with how the Eastern Illinois quarterback handled his interview. “All the questions have a purpose behind them,” Garoppolo said at the Senior Bowl, laughing about the odd question he received. “Sometimes you don’t know what they are; you’ve just got to answer truthfully, really.” A linebacker until his junior year at Rolling Meadows High School, Garoppolo didn’t receive a single Division I offer. Four years later, his performance at the East-West Shrine game last week earned him a last-minute invitation to the Senior Bowl – a long journey that continues to be positive for Garoppolo. “Last week helped me out,” he said

when asked about dealing with the stigma of being an Football Championship Subdivision quarterback playing with the big boys. “You guys talk about it, scouts Jimmy talk about it, but I’m done with that. … We’re Garoppolo all on the same playing field, same playing level.” “I think it’s a pretty neat deal,” said Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, who worked extensively with the quarterbacks on the South team. “The opportunity to have an Auburn pass rusher lined up and a Florida state pass rasher, a Georgia corner, now all of a sudden he’s playing with a different group two weeks in a row and two different offenses in a row. I think it’s pretty cool to watch his development.” Many considered Garoppolo the second-best quarterback in Mobile during the week, just behind Fresno State’s Derek Carr. He has an incredibly quick

Hinsdale Central’s Matt Rafferty (right) looks to pass the ball in a Jan. 17 game against Lyons Township. Rafferty led the Red Devils in scoring in two weekend games as Central went 1-1.

Central boys settle for weekend split By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – After fending off a comeback one night, Hinsdale Central’s boys basketball team could not complete one of its own the next. Playing host to this year’s installment of the 17th annual High School Hoops Showdown on Saturday, the Red Devils were defeated by Fenwick 5846 one day after holding off Glenbard West. With the game against Fenwick tied 37-37 entering the fourth quarter, the Red Devils went cold from the field, going without a basket for the opening 4:38 of the final frame. All the while, Fenwick socred the first 10 points of the fourth

quarter, sank late free throws and hung on for the victory. “We fought hard, but the game got away from us in the fourth quarter,” Hinsdale Central head coach Nick Latorre said. “I think we just tightened up a bit in the fourth and let them get to the free throw line too frequently.” Both teams played the previous night (Fenwick lost to

Loyola, 41-39, on Friday) and a back-and-forth tilt ensued during the nightcap of the Hoops Showdown. Central and Fenwick exchanged leads throughout the first half. Trailing 13-10, the Red Devils went on an 11-0 run to take the lead before Fenwick enjoyed its own 9-0 surge. With the game up for grabs in the fourth quarter, Fenwick’s Mike Smith stepped up. Smith tied a career high with 26 points, including 12 fourth-quarter points that helped break open the defensive stalemate. The sophomore point guard did much of his damage from the free throw line, where he was 17of-17.

As a team, Fenwick was 23of-27 from the charity stripe, compared to 12-of-14 for the Red Devils. Matt Rafferty paced the Hinsdale Central offense, recording 16 points and 11 rebounds. But the Red Devils 6-foot-7 forward was held without a basket in the fourth quarter. Junior Thomas Ives contributed 11 points, including eight in the fourth quarter. Rafferty finished with 19 points, 12 rebounds and five assists against Glenbard West, but it nearly came in a losing effort. Central led 31-18 at the half, but the Hilltoppers started the third quarter with an 11-2 run to slice the deficit to 33-29. Grant Hutcherson’s 3-point-

er put the Red Devils ahead 38-31 after three quarters, but West clawed back to within 52-49 before Rafferty, Jordan Bradshaw and Thomas Ives drained five free throws to secure a 57-53 West Suburban Silver victory. Hinsdale Central (13-6 overall, 5-1 WSS) resumes conference play this weekend with a road game against Downers Grove North at 7:30 p.m. Friday followed by a 7:30 p.m. Saturday home date against Oak Park-River Forest. The Red Devils currently sit in second in the conference, trailing first-place York by one game in the standings. Hinsdale Central lost by four to York in December but will play the Dukes again Feb. 18.

Each basketball season provides an opportunity for new players to step into the spotlight. Sometimes it can be freshmen or sophomores making an impact right away, or seniors making the most of their increased roles. So far this season, these three players are having breakout seasons for their teams.

Barret Benson School: Hinsdale South Class: Sophomore Position: Center Impact: This season, the sophomore center has grown into his 6-foot-9 frame as well as his larger role in the Hornets’ offense, according to first-year Hinsdale South head coach Brett Moore. “His core strength, leg strength and upper body strength have all improved tremendously,” Moore said. “He is so much more than a big body this season. He can score in spite of constant double teams, and has become a really solid defensive presence. I think he is as good as any big man in the area, and he is only a sophomore.” Benson is filling up the stat sheet, too. He is shooting 60 percent from the field and is averaging 12.5 points and nine rebounds per game. Additionally, he has blocked 45 shots this season.

By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com With the Denver Broncos and quarterback Peyton Manning set to play in the Super Bowl on Sunday, few people can offer the perspective of Ryan Diem. A former teammate of Manning, the Glenbard North graduate played 11 seasons in the NFL as a member of the Indianapolis Colts before retiring in 2011. Still living in Indianapolis with his family, the former offensive lineman is now involved with a couple of different businesses, primarily a software company called CloudOne. Diem and his family return to the Chicago area every year for the Ryan Diem’s Allie & Friends Golf Classic. In nine years, the event has raised more than $1 million for neuroblastoma cancer research.

Entertainment space ideas Each year there is a plethora of sports games, birthday parties and holidays to celebrate with friends and family. Now is the ideal time to create an impressive entertaining space in your home — one that you will be proud to share and truly enjoy throughout the year, whatever the occasion. Just imagine the memories your family will make snuggled on a plush new couch reading stories, or cheering their favorite soccer or football team to victory while watching a new flatscreen TV. Here are easy ways to upgrade your space, and your electronics, without busting your budget. Freshen furniture: If your current couch and recliners are more shabby than chic, it’s time to upgrade. New, plush furniture can be within your budget with lease-to-own alternatives. Accessorize: Whether you just got a new couch or want to update your current furniture, new pillows, throws and blankets are perfect for keeping guests toasty warm no matter how low the temperatures drop. Pillows are great for lounging and, when you’re hosting a large group, can be used on the floor to keep everyone comfy. Electronic entertainment: Setting the scene for the perfect party is easy when you have the right entertainment prepped beforehand. Start by having some music ready to get everyone in a festive mood from the moment they arrive. Rethink the arrangement: Cluster seating together to encourage conversation, and face the main pieces of furniture toward a focal point, like the TV. By keeping flow and function in mind as your arrange the area, you’ll better define the space and maximize its potential use.

Growing wisdom New gardeners should discover ‘The Old Farmer’s Almanac’ By Maureen Gilmer McClatchy-Tribune Information Services

There’s a hole punched in the corner of “The Old Farmer’s Almanac for 2014.” It’s a nostalgic remnant of the homestead where it hung on the outhouse wall for reading material and toilet paper. This is the very same annual that guided early American farmers, and it’s still just as important today, but for a whole new audience. Now backyard food growers can learn how to link sun, moon and stars, seasons and cycles and folklore into tending the sustainable home garden. “The Old Farmer’s Almanac” is useful because it reminds you of planting dates and other important times in the agricultural year. It’s is a primer for new gardeners to discover the older, less expensive ways to get things done. Moreover, this annual details how astronomical happenings, such as moon phases, governed the tasks of the gardener-farmer’s world. Why, you ask, is this important? That farmer used the old time methods of using phases of the moon to govern his work, and that helps gardeners, too. It dictates the kind of tasks he performs in the waxing moon or a waning one, when the moon is full or there is no moon at all. The Almanac utilizes very old symbols for celestial goings on from day length to the sun’s position with signs of the Zodiac and many things other similar publications lack. The symbols were essential for illiterate farmers who could not read text but recognized the signs and knew what they mean. The farmer’s monthly cycle is broken into four moon phases. The new moon is called “the dark of the moon.” Soon after, the first sliver of moon appears, called the “fingernail” moon growing nightly until the first quarter is complete. This signals it is on the increase or “waxing” incrementally larger each night. This continues through the end of the first quarter into the second, which ends in the full moon. Then the moon “wanes” or grows smaller each night until the third quarter is completed. In the fourth, you come around to the new moon again. An old farmer’s rule is to plant crops that fruit above the ground while the moon is waxing. Then under a full moon all crops are planted. It was believed that the strength of the moon is greatest when full and would therefore bring more growth energy to seed germination. As the moon begins to wane planting continues through the third quarter, but only those plants which produce below ground such as turnip or potato. The fourth quarter of the moon is a time of destruction and planting is forbidden. This

is when the farmer cuts his fence posts and firewood. He ploughed the fields and pulled weeds. Harvest also occurred in the dark of the moon. Among other important information is sunrise, sunset and tides for every day of the year. Woven into these factoids are useful tips, handy examples and folklore from early farming practices that still ring true today. This year’s feature stories include an excellent primer on crop rotation in the home garden. While buying my new issue,

I noticed other publishers are getting on board with similar versions of the Almanac that lack the age old wisdom and 21st century data. Look for its iconic yellow cover, and note the various geographic editions. Mine is the Western Edition where the info is skewed to local astronomical happenings and regional gardening needs of the west coast. Other editions are for a national audience and one for Canadians. You’ll find the almanac and a useful wall calendar version at www.almanac.com. “The Old Farmer’s Almanac”

is one of the best books for new backyard food gardeners. Learn planting dates, get on the fast track to the age-old forecast of seasons, planetary positions, moon phase and weather forecasts that are just as useful today as they were centuries ago.
