Community comes together to honor those who have served is a way to pay tribute to all those who make sacrifices for their nation.

By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com OAK BROOK – Every Veterans Day, there are fewer who will recount firsthand the smoke-filled skies and deafening blasts on the beaches of Normandy. About 60 years from now, veterans from the conflicts in the Middle East will face a similar reality. No matter where or when one has served, Veterans Day

T

hese next few months include the time of year where many of us are in larger groups and noisier places than normal. With the carving of the turkey and the trimming of tree and other festivities, hearing our friends, family, music, and lively conversation can be the most cherished part of the holiday season. A person with hearing loss may not feel the same way. It can be a time of frustration, feeling let out, and isolation. Background noise can cause listening diiculty even for persons with normal hearing; so for persons with any amount of hearing loss, the diiculty is oten greater. If you will be spending time with a friend or loved one during the holidays that has hearing diiculties, here is a few tips to help them out: ~ Gain their attention before starting a conversation either through eye contact or a small tap on their arm. ~ Look at them directly when you speak without covering your face. ~ We all become excited when speaking, but be sure to speak just a bit slower and clearly. ~ he holidays can be a good time to have a thoughtful conversation on how hearing afects the family dynamics and how you don’t want them to miss out.

With the support of family and friends, a person with hearing problems may be more able to accept their need to get hearing loss treatment and may be more willing to take the irst steps to better hearing. If you are the one with the hearing diiculties, there are things you can do to help yourself. ~ First and foremost have your hearing evaluated BEFORE you are in those diicult situations to see if hearing devices would be a beneit for you. Most hearing loss is gradual over years of time, and many don’t realize how bad it has become until they are put in those group situations. Hearing devices are much better sounding and looking than they were before. ~ Try to pick the least noisy place to sit if possible. ~ Ask people to speak one at a time. ~ Ask for any background music to be turned down. Untreated hearing loss can leave you out of the laughter and conversation around you. Don’t let this holiday time be a time of frustration. Why not put a hearing evaluation on the top of your “to do” list this holiday season? Call your local audiologist for an easy and painless hearing evaluation.

GOOD HEARING CAN HELP BRING IN GLAD TIDINGS FOR THE HOLIDAYS


Money for charity stolen at Hinsdale South Townhome uninhabitable By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com DARIEN – Hundreds of dollars raised by the Hinsdale South High School girls volleyball team has been reported missing. On Oct. 18, the team hosted its annual “Volley For The Cure” fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. Following the match, the team also sold T-shirts as a way to contribute to charity. “The T-shirts were a big

part of it because they were actually donated this year, and so it was pure profit,” said coach Lisa Martinez. The following weekend, that money, about $600 as noted in the Darien Police Department’s police log, was reported missing from a desk drawer by Martinez. “I know it was nobody in my office that I work with, but we have cleaning crews that come in over the weekend and so we have no real control over it,” Martinez

said. Martinez said the money was intended for the Open Arms Foundation at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, which supports breast cancer patients and their families. “The fact that this organization actually directly helps the Hinsdale, Darien, Willowbrook area to help women afford mammograms among other things is pretty cool,” she said. The case is currently pending.

Park Ave. is uninhabitable after a fire caused and estimated $50,000 in damages late Tuesday. The Hinsdale Fire Department received a call about 10:24 p.m. Tuesday on the non-emergency line for a smoke investigation in the 5700 block of South Park Avenue. While en route to the call, the Hinsdale Fire Department received additional calls for a reported structure fire in the 5700 block of South Park Avenue. Hinsdale engine 1013 arrived on the scene and upgraded the response to a still alarm, which brought additional fire crews

from Clarendon Hills, Pleasantview Fire Protection District, Western Springs, Oak Brook and Willow Springs. Fire crews from Hinsdale’s engine 1013, truck 1019 and ambulance 1015 evacuated all the residents along the 5700 block of South Park Avenue, which is a series of townhomes located in southeast Hinsdale near Hinsdale Central High School. Captain Dave DeWolf reported heavy black smoke coming from the 5706 S. Park Ave. residence and deployed multiple hose lines to extinguish the fire, which was burning in multiple locations. It appears the fire started underneath the fireplace, according to a news release from the Hinsdale Fire Department. The fire then traveled into the

Fire Chief Rick Ronovsky arrived on the scene and elevated the incident to a box alarm, which brought more fire crews from Westmont, La Grange, Oak Brook Terrace, Downers Grove, La Grange Park, McCook and Tri-State Fire Protection District. The fire was under control within minutes of the first arriving Hinsdale fire crews. Steve Tullis of the Hinsdale Fire Department said typically an alarm is upgraded for additional manpower for overhaul, investigation, clean-up and the chance there are additional calls for emergency within the village of Hinsdale while Hinsdale crews are committed at the fire. Additional crews are also needed in case someone gets hurt on the scene or if residents need assistance with EMS, Tullis said. The homeowner has made plans to stay somewhere else while the townhome remains uninhabitable, said Tullis. Fire investigators are still determining the cause of the fire, however, it does not appear suspicious in nature, according to the release.

For $5K, 40-year-old mustache faces razor Asst. chief to shave if fire department hits target for Movember By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – Before oxygen masks, a fireman’s greatest tool to fight smoke inhalation was, of all things, his beard. According to the history of SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus), a fireman would dip his beard in water, then clinch his wet beard between his teeth and breathe through his mouth, which in theory used the wet beard as a natural filter to prevent smoke inhalation. “When we travel to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, or the National Fire Academy, that’s like the hall of fame of mustaches,” said Steve Tullis of the Hinsdale Fire Department. “Most of us are just amateurs here.” Tullis said as SCBAs were introduced in the late 1800s, firefighters were told to shave their beards clean or into a mustache to help create a better seal for the SCBA face

Tullis said in fire houses all over the country and in some parts of the world, a mustache is considered a part of the uniform. But that’s not the reason behind the latest mission from the Hinsdale Fire Department that has its members growing out the upper lip. Throughout November, members of the Hinsdale and Westmont fire departments will be participating in a “Movember” competition growing out their mustaches to raise money and awareness for testicular and prostate cancer. Hinsdale fireman Jim Nichols said on Thanksgiving Day, the departments will see who has raised the most money, with the winner really just getting bragging rights. The real winners will be those who

If that amount is raised, McElroy will shave his 40-year-old soup strainer. “I think what’s going to happen is [the fund] is going to get really big,” McElroy said. In just the first week, the department had more than $500 and was eagerly inching closer to not only carving a turkey on Thanksgiving Day, but their chief’s mustache.

OAK BROOK – The Oak Brook Village Board recently awarded a new electric aggregation contract to Verde Energy. Verde Energy offered a bid of 5.1840 cents per kWh starting January 2014 through June 2015. This was the lowest of four bids submitted, according to the village’s website, and about 13 percent lower than the current ComEd supply charge and 6 percent lower than the village’s current aggregation contract with

Integrys. Residents who are currently participating in the village aggregation plan and all new ComEd accounts will receive a letter notifying them of the price and contract terms with the new supplier and will be automatically enrolled in the new aggregation program unless they opt out. Residents who are not currently part of the aggregation program may join the program at any time by contacting the village’s supplier.

AVOID BACK SURGERY KNOW THE FACTS ABOUT

DRUGS & SURGERY

Cortisone injections into the spine (epidural shots can actually cause osteoporosis and joint degeneration, and typically do not provide long term relief. Narcotics simply mask the symptoms, and can create an entirely new set of problems like addiction or accidental overdosing.

NSAIDs, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are commonly prescribed by doctors for people with back pain. Unfortunately, recent studies estimate these are responsible for 10,000-20,000 deaths each year due to the severe bleeding they can cause.

Back surgery is the last resort for most patients, and unfortunately often fails to alleviate the pain. An award winning study in a prestigious orthopedic medical journal found lumbar fusion surgery left the average patient with only a 33% decrease in pain. Another study found that after back surgery only 29% of patients were able to return to their previous activities without the use of pain medication.

expressed her gratitude as well to all those who have served. “Many have died and even more have come back bearing the scars of that service,” Bellock said. A presentation was also shown displaying pictures of all veterans from the Oak Brook area, 85 in all, and 21 of which were in WWll. “I think that’s remarkable from a village of 8,000,” said Kathy Maher, president of the Oak Brook Historical Society. Tony DiCanio of Oak Brook served in the Army reserves during the Vietnam era, 196975, and this was his third time attending the Veterans Day ceremony sponsored by the village and the historical society. “Kathy Maher did a phenomenal job and she’s the rea-

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for those suffering from chronic back pain. • Herniated Discs - Bulging Discs • Degenerative Disc Disease • Facet Joint Syndrome • Spinal Stenosis

The Science Fig. 1 Symptoms of a herniated disc can vary depending on the location of the herniation and the type of soft tissue involved. In many cases severe and unrelenting pain will radiate into the region served by an affected nerve root that is irritated or impinged bu the herniated material. Fig. 2 Spinal decompression gently pulls the vertebral joints apart. It is believed this precise process produces a negative pressure inside the disc causing any herniated material to slowly recede away from the effected nerve root and back into the disc. Fig. 3 It is also believed through this process the disc is re-hydrated, aiding in its restoration. Fig. 4 Healthy Disc.

The Treatment Patient are fitted with a support system then positioned on a comfortable spinal decompression table. The purpose of the support system is to stabilize the patients body. An advanced computer system elongates the spine in a slow, gentle manner in order to relieve pressure on compressed discs.

son I’m here,” DiCanio said. Bill Bristow, a 45-year resident of Oak Brook, served in the Navy from 1944 to 1946. He has been to the ceremony before, but this year was extra special as a photo of him and his two sons who were in the Air Force was shown during the presentation. “It was great to see dad’s picture with his two sons,” Bristow said. Ever since the “Shot heard around the World” in the Revolutionary War, countless men and women have served in the military while those at home have tried to do what they can to honor them. While a few holidays are set aside specifically, it’s the hope from Lalmalani that every day serves as a tribute. “Because of your services and sacrifices, we’ve been able to enjoy our freedom and liberty,” Lalmalani said.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FROM NICOR GAS Every day, underground pipelines safely transport natural gas to homes and businesses throughout the area. Nicor Gas is responsible for the security and maintenance of pipelines in our service territory.

Water Heater Safety

Call Before You Dig

Incomplete combustion of any fuel – produces carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is poisonous and has no odor, taste or color. Carbon monoxide detectors are helpful, but they are no substitute for using equipment safely. This includes having it inspected once a year by a certified contractor.

Before digging around your property, state law requires you call 811 to have your utility lines professionally marked – for free! You must wait the required amount of time before you begin your project. Pipeline markers indicate the presence of pipe and right-of-way. While they’re not present in all areas, it’s always best to call 811. If right-of-way is adjacent to your property, it is your responsibility to ensure no new landscaping or physical structure interferes with access to the pipeline, and with our ability to keep it safe through routine monitoring and maintenance. Information about transmission pipelines operating in your community is available through the National Pipeline Mapping System (NPMS) and is available online at www.npms.phmsa.dot.gov. © 2013 AGL Resources Inc. All rights reserved. AGL-11533

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission urges all users to lower their water heaters to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Carbon Monoxide

Appliance Safety According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency: • It’s important that you have your furnace inspected by a qualified specialist. • Be sure all furnace controls and emergency shutoffs are in proper working condition. • Keep trash and other combustible material away from your air heating and water heating systems.

IF YOU SMELL GAS, ACT FAST. Although natural gas pipeline incidents are uncommon, these tips will help you identify a possible leak and know what to do. LOOK for blowing dirt or continued bubbling of standing water. LISTEN for a hissing or roaring sound near a natural gas appliance or line. SMELL for the distinctive rotten-egg scent of natural gas. Take action if you detect even a small amount of this odor. LEAVE the area IMMEDIATELY if you detect a natural gas leak. Don’t try to identify the source or stop the leak. CALL Nicor Gas at 888.Nicor4U (642.6748) or 911 once you are safely away from the possible leak site. Stay away from the area until a Nicor Gas representative or emergency personnel indicate it is safe to return. REMEMBER while near a possible natural gas leak, do not touch or use anything that may cause a spark. This includes lighters, matches, cigarettes, flashlights, light switches and telephones. Wait until you have left the area to use a cell phone.

For more information,visit nicorgas.com/safety or call 888.Nicor4U (642.6748).

dciamprone@shawmedia.com WILLOWBROOK – The black satin shimmered as Laurie Borse walked through Il Poggiolo restaurant in Hinsdale. It was known as her black duchess silk satin jacket with a vampire collar – one of several medieval or Gothic-style pieces the fashion designer specializes in. “They’re definitely statement pieces,” the Willowbrook native said. Borse has come a long way as a fashion designer since being that little girl whose creativity knew no bounds as she grew up obsessed with drawing, painting and fabric. “When I was 9, I asked my mom if I could go out with a box and get some fabrics, so I went around and knocked on

One neighbor she came to told her to basically help herself, which was poetry to Borse’s ears. “I remember just going through the boxes and jumping up and down and tossing the fabric because I just loved it,” she said. From there, the young Borse would tackle other creative endeavors, such as writing a play in eighth grade about staying off drugs.

Laurie Borse (left) of Willowbrook strikes a pose during Latino Fashion Week last month in Chicago. But drawing and design were her passion and something that acted as an escape for her even living with a family of eight kids. “I was very much a loner,” she said. “I would be in my room for hours at a time just sketching.” For Willowbrook residents, the name Borse may sound familiar as Tony Borse was her father – the first mayor and founder of Willowbrook. There is also the Tony and Florence Borse Memorial Community Park named after her parents. Growing up, Borse said she couldn’t have asked for any better parents. “I felt special to be honest, but my parents were so loving and supportive of whatever I wanted to do,” she said. After graduating from Hinsdale South High School, she enrolled in the Ray-Vogue College of Design in Chicago and graduated with several honors.

In 1996, she won a scholarship to attend the Paris Fashion Institute in France where she now lives overlooking the Eiffel Tower. While in France, her fashion took off as she was a 2001 participant at the Paris Sur Mode for fashion week and designed for SFAXI in Paris. Now she is an independent designer for Borse International and freelancer. This past October, Borse was also featured in Latino Fashion Week from Oct. 1 to 5 in Chicago, which has been a culmination of years of hard work and sporadic jobs designing and illustrating wherever she can from Wielboldt’s in Chicago to Jerry’s Deep Discount Centers as an advertising manager. Borse wouldn’t trade it for anything else. “I always tell everyone anything you want to be you can be as long as you keep trying and trying,” she said.

Taking a look at rise in suburban poverty New information was recently released indicating that poverty in the Chicago region is now split right down the middle – 50 percent of the region’s poor population now lives in the suburbs. In fact, suburbs have experienced the greatest growth in poverty nationwide. From 1990 to 2011, Chicago’s poverty rate held steady, yet increased 57 percent in the suburbs. At People’s Resource Center, we are addressing this changing landscape every day. Since 1975, People’s COMMUNITY Resource Center has been VOICE bringing neighbors together Kim to respond to hunger and Perez poverty in DuPage County. With a team of more than 1,500 volunteers, we offer nutritious food and other basic necessities such as clothes and rent assistance for people facing tough times. We connect people with resources—education and tutoring, jobs, technology, art, a caring community—to create a future of hope and opportunity for all. After the recession hit in 2008, we quickly saw the number of people coming to us for help increase by 50 percent. In addition, more than 70 percent of the individuals served by People’s Resource Center last year have been receiving our services for more than a year, compared to early on in the recession, when most of our clients were newcomers. The hard economic times of recent years are having a lasting impact for many DuPage families. These struggling families face significant challenges each day and are working hard to overcome the many barriers they encounter as they work toward self-sufficiency. Some, like one of our clients, Katie, find themselves out of work and unable to keep up with rent payments. Another client, Jan, has had a series of low-paying jobs and can’t afford to buy food. And yet another struggling neighbor, Steve, needs a high school diploma in order to land a job. They each turned to PRC programs for help and received assistance that made a positive difference in their lives. There is no quick fix to poverty in DuPage County, but there are real solutions. People’s Resource Center is an example of a community’s response to a community problem. Your continued support is as critical today as it has ever been. Thank you for making a positive difference in the lives of these neighbors in need. Your generous donations and volunteer service make it possible for our neighbors to feed their families and to take that next step toward greater self-sufficiency.

Kim Perez is the executive director of People’s Resource Center.

Hinsdale Police Department officers Matt Miller, (left) Louis P. Hayes Jr., Tony Maraviglia and Tom Yehl assisted with the rescue of a dog swept away Oct. 31 at Katherine Legge Memorial Park.

After learning that Sammie, a Bernese Mountain dog, had been swept away in a stream, Hinsdale police officers Matt Miller, Louis P. Hayes Jr., Tony Maraviglia and Tom Yehl rescued her after a “doggie waterslide” ride through a stormwater drain. Officials determined that the tremor that shook the walls of homes and businesses in Hinsdale last week was not a result of a nearby quarry blast. We’re not sure what’s more unsettling: thinking a local business caused the tremor or having no idea what caused it.

8SOUND OFF Questioning bond issuance Taxpayers of Downers Grove are now being informed the stormwater fee will be going up each year until 2028. However, property taxes will not be going down a comparable amount to offset these increases. In fact, property taxes and water fees are going up. So, why does the village plan to sell $20 million in bonds and loan the money to the development to finance Delta’s planned senior living facility? Can’t Delta qualify for a loan on their own? Is this why Delta is repeatedly coming before Downers Grove? I believe this is the fourth try to build a facility in Downers. Can’t they afford to do it on their own? Do they have to have Downers Grove bond funding to finance their project? Inquiring taxpayers would certainly like to have this answered correctly by the Village Council.

the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

A tasteful memorial In reference to the Kelli O’Laughlin memorial: What and who does it hurt? It’s beautiful and tasteful and age appropriate. No one said you couldn’t put up a memorial like Kelli’s. Keep it looking nice, like Kelli’s crew does. If this helps Kelli’s family and friends, why not? What has happened to you that you are so cold-hearted and nasty?

Who’s liable for tremor? Regarding that quarry blast: Why aren’t quarries liable for damage that they cause? I know it’s tough to prove that whatever happened was directly related to a tremor, but it just seems like something needs to be done. They’re just keeping quiet about it as if it didn’t happen, and you know, some people had broken things. I’m just wondering.

Against a fee break for churches

Not time to forget

When a stormwater utility fee, or rain tax, was implemented by the village of Downers Grove, it was a simple matter for the village to check the public record at the County Recorder of Deeds office to learn who owned each parcel of land and charge the fee to such owners. There is now a movement to let houses of worship pass this responsibility off onto the rest of us fee payers in addition to the fees we already pay for parcels that we own. I object to being forced by a government to support the establishment of religion. Such forcing would be contrary to

I believe under normal circumstances for a memorial, a year is appropriate. But, in the case of Kelli O’Laughlin, it is definitely not. This was a 14-year-old girl who was brutally murdered in her own home, and I believe her family and friends do not want anyone to forget that the person who did this has not been brought to justice. I think they want to keep this fresh in everyone’s mind until the trial is over. I am sure it is hard for her family to see the cups over the expressway on a daily basis, but it is surely necessary.

State investigators: No wrongdoing in quarry blast A two-day investigation by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources found no wrongdoing by the company at Federal Quarry that conducted a blast Nov. 4 seven seconds before the start of a magnitude 3.2 seismic event that was felt across the Chicago area. The department’s Office of Mines and Minerals (OMM) released a statement Nov. 6 saying Hanson

Material Service Corporation operated within the statutory limits for blasting and quarry operation after a state inspector reviewed the company’s blasting records and measurement readings, which were taken properly, the office said. “In this instance, our inspection found no violations of state law,” said Mike Falter, head of the OMM’s Blasting and Explosives Unit, in the release. Measurements from the quarry

show the blast vibration registered at 0.35 inches per second, well below the 1 inch-per-second limit set by state regulators. “Our review of quarry records does show measurement equipment picked up vibrations from a second and separate event approximately seven seconds after the initial blast,” Falter said. “What this secondary event was, or what caused it, is outside our regulatory expertise.”

U.S. Rep. Lipinski requests federal investigation of McCook quarry blast SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA After experiencing the Nov. 4 tremor at his Western Springs home, U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski has requested a federal investigation into the incident that shook buildings and alarmed residents throughout the Chicago area. Lipinski sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Labor and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms asking both agencies to

“ascertain whether laws, regulations and protocols may have been violated” regarding the purchase, storage and use of explosives at the Hanson MateriU.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski al Service quarry in McCook where the blast occurred, according to a news release from Lipinski’s office. “I was sitting at my kitchen ta-

ble at my home in Western Springs when my house started to violently shake for five seconds,” Lipinski said in the letter. “This is something that no one should have to tolerate. The potential for unseen damage to homes and businesses caused by a blast such as this is unacceptable.” The U.S. Geological Survey classified the tremor as a 3.2 magnitude seismic event that was felt as far away as Kenosha, Wis.

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

Restaurant reviews

TL’s Four Seasons explores flavors of Asia BARTLETT – For a change of pace on a recent Sunday afternoon, we stepped inside TL’s Four Seasons in downtown Bartlett, across the street from the rail line. The restaurant celebrates a culinary split personality, offering separate menus for Chinese and Japanese cuisines. Sunlight reflecting off pale yellow walls and a warm oak bar tinges the airy dining room gold. A full bar is at the front, and at the other end, sushi lovers can pick front-row seats to watch the chefs prepare their precision creations. Changing arrays of artful edibles served atop wooden planks paraded past our table to patrons scattered throughout the room. My dining companion and I took along a friend who’s vegetarian for his perspective on the menu, and a quick lesson on chopsticks. Kicking our meal off with sushi, he chose the Veggie Lover’s Roll with mixed vegetables, and we tried the superb smoked salmon atop a dollop of rice. The extensive array of tempting sushi options and all its culinary relatives will lure us back for more seafood. We next ventured to the other side of the menu, and my date ordered the Chinese vegetable and wonton soup. Tender bok choy was paired with a delicate broth and terrific dumplings. He was the first to note the restaurant’s absence of salt overkill so common in soups and other dishes at many restaurants. At TL’s, the recipes appear to rely on the ingredients’ own fresh flavors. Our friend ordered the Kung Pao Tofu. “The tofu was cooked well,” he said. “It was crispy with a nice Kung Pao coating, but not as spicy as I was expecting.” The menu notes the kitchen will fine-tune recipes according to each patron’s personal spiciness scale, so make your request known. TL’s Kung Pao version includes a colorful blend of red and green bell peppers. My regular dining com-

Something new to him, he enjoyed the dramatically long ribbons of pork and tofu set off by the unexpectedly subtle flavor of Chinese chives, a vegetable new to us. “It was tasty, and a generous portion,” he said of the hearty entree. I selected the Snow Mountain Shrimp, which featured tender shrimp with a touch of breading and sesame seeds in a peach-infused sauce that was not overly sweet. Glad I was drawn to choose the dish because of the poetic name, it proved to be another seafood treat. My entree included soup and a choice of plain or fried rice, plus a light and savory spring roll. Outstanding. And my shrimp dish also was accompanied by greens with a mildly zesty ginger dressing that was as refreshing as the salad’s cucumber – more flavorful than I was able to find all summer at farmer’s markets.

Hinsdale Central’s boys cross country team is all smiles after it captures the Class 3A state championship Saturday at Detweiller Park in Peoria.

Red Devils run to state title By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com PEORIA – For three gruelling months, Hinsdale Central’s boys cross country team continually proved that no individual was more important that the collective unit. During the state meet Saturday at Detweiller Park, that all-for-one motto paid off as the Red Devils ran away with the Class 3A state championship. The only team to have all seven runners place within the top 105 finishers, the Red Devils torched the competition, accumulating just 99 total points, 45 points better than second place Downers

Class 3A boys team results 1. Hinsdale Central, 99 points 2. Downers Grove North, 144 3. O’Fallon, 157 4. Lyons Township, 190 5. York, 196 Grove North. Before the start of the season, Hinsdale Central head coach Jim Westphal noticed a friendly yet competitive attitude among his top athletes. “From summer on, these kids displayed such a sense of purpose and focus,” Westphal said. “Chemistry was evident – they are good friends but

they push one another. When it came time to run in a pressure situation, they wanted to give their best for each other.” Central’s win was also a banner moment for the West Suburban Silver conference, which had three other teams – Downers Grove North, Lyons Township and York – finish in the top five. Seniors Billy Magnesen and Kevin Huang often paced the team this season, but fellow seniors TJ Caveney and Emmett Scully were also leaders and the glue that held the team together, according to Westphal. “Good teams rely heavily on the third through seventh runners,” Westphal said. “The

closer they are the top two, the better you will perform as a team.” The senior trio of Magnesen, Huang and Caveney led the charge in Peoria with three all-state finishes. Magnesen was ninth (14:41), Huang 24th (15:01) and Caveney 25th (15:02). Right behind them were freshman Blake Evertsen (29th place, 15:06) and sophomore Chris Brenk (43rd, 15:13) to round out the scoring quintet with junior Matt McBrien (60th, 15:22) and Scully (104th, 15:38) also posting solid times. Before state, the boys also took first at both the regional and sectional meets. “Our goal going into the

season was to make a jump to that next, elite level,” Westphal said. “We knew that we had the talent to take home a state trophy, but the boys were the ones that bought in and executed.” While the team will lose seniors Magnesen, Huang, Caveney and Scully – all of whom may run in college, according to Westphal – the head coach believes that the underclassmen have the talent to fill their shoes and vie for another run at a state title next fall. “We are very fortunate to have such a talented group,” Westphal said. “They are not only great athletes, but great students and great individuals as well.”

3A Team Results

asoulier@shawmedia.com PEORIA – Alexa Haff saved her best race for last. The Hinsdale Central freshman – who established herself as the cross country team’s top runner early in the season – set a personal record en route to a second place finish at the Class 3A state meet Saturday at Detweiller Park. Scorching the field with a career-best 16:45, Haff’s blistering time was runner-up only to New Trier’s Mimi Smith, who finished with 16:43. Coming off first place finishes at the conference, regional and sectional meets, the Red Devils’ phenom relished her inaugural state finals experience. “I couldn’t be happier with the way I executed at state,”

1. Glenbard West, 75 points 2. Naperville North, 112 3. New Trier, 173 4. Palatine, 214 5. Lockport, 237 14. Hinsdale Central, 328

Hinsdale Central results Alexa Haff (2nd place), Annie Zaher (42nd), Camila Horowicz (103rd), Emma Sullivan (121st), Sara Folliard (155th), Sarah Brennan (184th). Haff said. “I went into the race wanting to give it my all and not have any lingering regrets. I don’t think I could have done any better. I am just so excited with the way things turned out.”

Thanking her coaches, parents and teammates who assisted her all year, Haff admitted that she was nervous before the starting gun went off, but her pre-race jitters quickly evaporated. “My teammates were really instrumental and calmed me down before the race,” Haff said. “Especially the upperclassmen; they told me to just relax and run my race. I was able to get out with the first group and I felt really good the whole time.” A part of the front pack for the entire race, Haff took advantage of the flat course and near perfect weather conditions. She actually led late in the race, but was overtaken by Smith in the final 800 meters. Following the race, Haff said one of the most rewarding

Central’s Haff sets PR, finishes second at state cross country meet moments was socializing with her fellow runners. “Normally we just leave or regroup with our teams after meets,” Haff said. “But I was able to congratulate and get to know Mimi, Madeline [Perez from Glenbard West] and some of the other girls. “We have a lot in common and share a lot of the same experiences. It was so much fun bonding with them; it was probably one of my favorite part of the weekend.” Haff said that she celebrated her second place finish by indulging in sugar for the first time in months. Now, she plans to enjoy a two-week break before considering her next steps. While she currently has no plans to compete in any races on her own, Haff assumes she will regroup with her team for

winter “Polar Bear Club” runs. But, for now, she is enjoying a well deserved break and a little extra recognition around the Central campus. “Everyone at school has been so nice,” Haff said. “Students I don’t even know are coming up and congratulating me. It’s been a whirlwind, a lot to take in. I’m just happy that I could make my parents proud and represent my team and school.”

Hinsdale South Juniors Sarah Leganski and Victoria Salazar ran in the Class 2A state cross country race and had solid showings in the last meet of the year. Leganski finished 35th overall with a time of 18:30, and Salazar wasn’t far behind in 53rd place with a time of 18:58.

Jackie Adelphia

Rachael Fara

Lauren Fuller

School: Hinsdale South Year: Senior Outlook: With 160 kills, 30 aces, 66 blocks and 66 digs, Adelphia was one of the Hornets most well-rounded players. Adelphia, who chose not to play collegiate volleyball, was a part of four West Suburban Gold conference championship teams during her time at Hinsdale South.

School: Benet Year: Junior Outlook: For two seasons, Fara has anchored the middle, resonating as one of Redwings’ best blockers and hitters. The 6-foot-2 inch East Suburban Catholic all-conference selection boasts impressive leaping ability and has already committed to play volleyball at Northwestern.

School: Lemont Year: Senior Impact: A four-year varsity performer for the Indians, this senior middle was a force at the net. Ferguson topped Lemont with 111 blocks while also contributing 160 kills and a team-high 56 aces. She will continue her career at Austin Peay.

School: Hinsdale Central Year: Junior Outlook: A junior outside hitter, Fuller was successfully converting nearly 40 percent of her swings during the last four weeks of the season, securing West Suburban Silver all-conference recognition. She has verbally committed to play collegiate volleyball at University of San Diego.

Krissa Gearring

Cara Howell

Katherine Mahlke

Vanessa Possidoni

School: Bolingbrook Year: Senior Outlook: The four-year varsity starter posted her best season this year, earning Southwest Suburban all-conference and Waubonsie Valley and United Township all-tournament team honors. Bolingbrook’s team MVP had 420 kills, 257 digs, 481 total points scored and 37 aces this season.

School: Lemont Year: Senior Impact: Another member of the Indians’ strong senior class, Howell topped a balanced Lemont offense with 169 kills this fall. She was also second on the squad with 58 blocks and helped the team reach 28 wins.

School: Downers Grove North Year: Senior Impact: A four-year varsity starter who will play for the University of Michigan, the well-rounded Mahlke balanced her 294 kills and 36 aces with 206 digs and 35 blocks for points. She was named all-tournament at Waubonsie Valley and Autumnfest and was a West Suburban all-conference and all-academic honoree.

School: Westmont Year: Senior Impact: Possidoni ran the Sentinels’ offense for the last three years and was recognized as a three-time all-conference selection. The senior, who is considering playing collegiate volleyball, helped Westmont advance to the regional championship match this fall.

HONORABLE MENTION Benet Whitney Battoe

Bolingbrook Leah Rose

Downers Grove North Mary Helen Beacom

Summer Stitt School: Lisle Year: Senior Impact: This outside hitter was the Lions’ offensive and defensive MVP. An all-conference athlete in volleyball and softball, Lisle head coach Matt Hrubesky described Stitt as “a hard worker who brings a lot of energy and heart to our team. She is very coachable and always looking to improve as a player.”

Katie Vondra School: Downers Grove South Year: Junior Impact: A big hitter who can also defend the net, Vondra provided some leadership on a young Mustangs team. She recorded 243 kills with a .298 hitting percentage this season while adding 31 aces and 192 digs.

Downers Grove South Caroline Wolf School: Benet Year: Senior Outlook: Tournament MVP at the Benet Invite and Wheaton Classic, Wolf guided the Redwings to a 24-3 regular season record and an appearance at this weekend’s state finals.

Benet’s Caroline Wolf serves during a match at the Benet Invitational earlier this season. The senior libero has been a team leader all season and helped the Redwings advance to this weekend’s state finals.

LISLE – Benet’s Caroline Wolf understands that defense wins championships. Under the tutelage of Benet head coach Brad Baker, assistants Kyle Reid and Kim Sayers, and former Redwing liberos such as 2012 graduate Sheila Doyle, Wolf has developed the defensive moxie that defined the Redwings during back-to-back state title runs in 2011 and 2012. In her fourth year on the varsity squad, Wolf guided Benet to a 24-3 regular season record, has recorded 426 digs, and has led the Redwings back to this weekend’s state finals. The team’s defensive leader as libero and also a team captain, Wolf is also the Suburban Life all-area girls volleyball team MVP. “Caroline has been an impact player for us all year long,” Baker said. “She is the leader of our defense and also an emotional leader on and off the court. She brings a teamfirst mentality and is a great communicator.” The Naperville resident also pitched in on the offensive side of things by successfully serving 96 percent of her serves. As a result, Wolf was crowned the MVP at the Benet Invite and the Wheaton Classic and was all-tournament at Autumnfest. A defender through and through, she selflessly deflects praise and credits her coaches and the Redwings’ program for her success. “It is really a pleasure to be a part of such an esteemed program,” Wolf said. “The coaches have brought a winning atmosphere to the school and helped a lot of really talented athletes improve as players and individuals.” Before coming to Benet, Wolf played softball and a was a highly regarded gymnast and swimmer. It wasn’t until her seventh grade year at Lisle’s St. Joan of Arc School that she picked up a volleyball. Wolf soon joined up to play club volleyball with Sports Performance, explaining that

About Caroline Wolf School: Benet Year: Senior Position: Libero Jersey: No. 3 College: Wake Forest University

“Caroline has been an impact player for us all year long. She is the leader of our defense and also an emotional leader on and off the court. She brings a team-first mentality and is a great communicator.” Brad Baker Benet head coach her natural communication skills were perfectly suited for such a cooperative game. “As a libero, my communication skills are my biggest asset,” Wolf said. “I am a loud person, I’m instinctual and say what I feel. My energetic personality goes a long way on the court.” Wolf’s volleyball skillset and natural athletic abilities are not far behind her communication savvy. A hitter before switching to the libero position, Wolf’s tremendous reach and quickness allow her to dig balls that most defenders cannot get. Volleyball coaches at Wake Forest University also recognized Wolf’s bevvy of talents, recruiting her to come aboard following a junior season in which she helped lead the Redwings to a state title. But, she’s not quite ready to look that far ahead, as Wolf again has her team vying for another state title. “Winning the title last year was great, but this is a new team and we feel that we have something to prove,” Wolf said. “We are one of four teams left standing [in the 4A playoffs] and we want to have fun and make the most of our time at state.”

Bears must protect McCown to beat Ravens Hub Arkush

There is good news and bad news for the Bears in their matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, and it’s a little tricky figuring out which will override the other. The Ravens will bring one of the NFL’s worst offenses to Soldier Field on Sunday. They struggle on the ground and through the air, but particularly with the running game. That could offer some tonic to a Bears’ defense that is one of the worst in the league, particularly against the run. On the flip side is the reality that the defending Super Bowl-champion Ravens still are one of the best defenses in the NFL. And, in only his second start of the season, Josh McCown will face the best pass rush the Bears have seen so far this year. That is especially unsettling realiz-

ing the Bears’ offensive line probably had its worst outing of the season Sunday against the Lions. Joe Flacco is among the NFL’s wealthiest players after signing a new contract following the Ravens’ Super Bowl win. He also is one of the least productive quarterbacks in the game with a 77.3 passer rating, 25th in the NFL behind such stalwarts as Mike Glennon and Christian Ponder. Flacco’s managed only 6.7 yards per pass, and his 12 touchdown passes are offset by 11 interceptions. Part of his problem throwing the ball may be caused by the fact the Ravens are only 30th in the NFL rushing the football and dead last in average gain per rush. That’s hard to believe of a club with Ray Rice as its feature back, but he has only 115 carries through nine games for 289 yards – a 2.5 average. Bernard Pierce was supposed to be a great compliment to Rice this season, but he’s averaged only 2.5 yards a pop on 93 carries. The suspicion the Ravens would miss Aquan Boldin is borne out in No.

1 receiver Torrey Smith’s numbers. While he’s caught 41 passes for 753 yards, an outstanding 18.4 average, Smith’s been targeted 84 times. No. 1 receivers who convert less than half their targets don’t stay No. 1s for long. Perhaps the Ravens’ biggest problem has been the offensive line, which is puzzling since it started the season with four starters off the Super Bowl team and top backup Gino Gradkowski stepping in at center for the retired Matt Birk. The line has been so bad that the Ravens dealt for Eugene Monroe from Jacksonville before the trade deadline and then dealt left tackle Bryant McKinnie to the Dolphins. Defensively, the Ravens have reloaded nicely after losing Paul Kruger, Ray Lewis, Dannell Ellerbe, Ed Reed and Cary Williams off the Super Bowl team. The additions of Chris Canty, Daryl Smith, Elvis Dumervil and rookie Matt Elam have made the rebuilding of that unit somewhat seamless. The key matchups in this ballgame will feature the game’s best nose tackle, Haloti Ngata, on the inside shoul-

ders of Kyle Long and Matt Slauson at different times, and Terrell Suggs and Dumervil rushing off the edges on Jordan Mills and Jermon Bushrod. The Ravens have 32 sacks, paced by Suggs’ nine and Dumervil’s eight. Jimmy Smith has nice size on one corner at 6-2, but Lardarius Webb is smallish at 5-10. That will create mismatches for either Brandon Marshall or Alshon Jeffery. The key matchup on the other side of the ball has to be Rice against the Bears’ two rookie linebackers. As badly as Rice has struggled this year, Mel Tucker has to be sure Jon Bostic and Khaseem Greene aren’t the antidote he’s been looking for. One other matchup to watch is John Harbaugh, one of the most successful coaches in the history of the NFL through his first five seasons, and the rookie for the Bears, Marc Trestman. Harbaugh is sure to have some custom pressures designed for McCown. How Trestman counters could be the difference in the game.

playoff performers. Avoid the Cowboys’ defense, however. 3. Bears – On the road both weeks, the Bears have favorable matchups with the Browns and Eagles. The Bears’ defense is no longer viable, but Jay Cutler should be back as the starter well before week 15. Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall are big-ticket items, but Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Robbie Gould should be more accessible. 4. Lions – Things just keep getting better in Detroit. The Lions are at home in weeks 15 and 16, facing the Ravens and

the Giants, respectively. The Ravens are no pushover, but the Lions are tough to stop in their dome. Expect a solid performance in week 15 and better numbers in week 16. 5. Seahawks – better known for their defense, the Seahawks are starting to get the offense rolling. They travel to play the Giants in week 15 and get the Cardinals at home in week 16. 6. Redskins – The third NFC East team to benefit from a favorable late-season schedule, the ’Skins travel to hapless Atlanta in week 15 and get the Cowboys at home the following week. 7. Chiefs – Although there are few fantasy options in Kansas City, those options should fare well in Oakland and at home against the Colts. At the very least, kicker Ryan Succop and the Chiefs’ defense would be nice pickups. 8. Packers – Assuming Aar-

on Rodgers returns, the Packers could make a late-season push. Traveling to Dallas and facing the Steelers at home, their offense should produce during the fantasy playoffs.

The worst week 15 and 16 matchups: Texans (at Colts, vs. Broncos), Colts (vs. Texans, at Chiefs), Dolphins (vs. Patriots, at Bills), Rams (vs. Saints, vs. Buccaneers), Cardinals (at Titans, at Seahawks)

Random Observations … The Red Zone Channel is the greatest invention since electricity. Is it me, or does Lions coach Jim Schwartz look like a cross between the boss gremlin and the kid from “Life Goes On”? And speaking of the Lions, although they are talented, they are perhaps the most undisciplined team in the NFL. It will cost them in the playoffs.

Heading into week 11, teams with 8-2 and 7-3 records might already be looking ahead to the fantasy playoffs. In most formats, fantasy playoffs begin in week 15 with many championship games taking place in week 16. If you are fortunate enough to be sitting alone atop the fantasy mountain, it would be wise to look ahead to weeks 15 and 16 to ensure your players have as many favorable playoff matchups as possible. If you have a marginal player with terrible playoff matchups, now is the time to make a move and grab a guy from one of the seven teams with the most favorable matchups in week 15 and 16. 1. Eagles – Facing the Vikings in the Metrodome and the Bears at home, Philadel-

phia has the best combination of fantasy power and weak opponents. If you somehow managed to get to the top without stability at quarterback, Nick Foles is the guy for you. If you don’t have LeSean McCoy, you’re probably not going to be willing to give up what it would take to get him in a trade. Riley Cooper and kicker Alex Henery are more accessible options. 2. Cowboys – Defense is a foreign concept in the NFC Least, and that is a terrific opportunity for fantasy owners. The sometimes-explosive Cowboys face the Packers at home in week 15 and travel to Washington in week 16. Tony Romo had a tough week in New Orleans, so this might be a good week to pull off a trade for him. Dez Bryant is in the same category as McCoy, but Jason Witten, Terrance Williams, DeMarco Murray and Dan Bailey should be solid

Revelry highlights fashion as a form of art with the cutting edge work of nine (9) alumnae of Dominican University’s Apparel Design program. The designers will present collections true to their respective artistic visions and highly unique from one another.

Revelry opens with the work of established designer Caroline Borucki (caro___) who has retail presence in New Buffalo, Michigan. It then segues to the work of emerging designers Alexandra Howard (Elmwood Park), Izzy Heras (Romeoville), Amanda Lindley (Tinley Park), Samantha Petkofski (Niles), Iris Carney (Berwyn), Molly Morettes (Park Ridge), Hannah Gerhardt (Omaha, NE) and Erin Von Kannon (Monmouth). Many of the designers will also exhibit portfolios and samples of their work at a Dominican University collective booth throughout Riverside Arts Weekend.

The mother and son team make up Higgins Glass Studio, 33 E. Quincy, entrusted to the Wimmers to carry on the art crafted by their long time mentors, Fran and Michael Higgins, who began the company in 1948. Louise and Jonathan agree that it was Fran’s ideas and Michael’s energy and ingenuity that led these two huge talents to start their work out if their Chicago apartment in 1948. Over the years their art sold in such major retailers as Marshall Field’s, Georg Jensen and Bullocks Wilshire, the very high end store in the California based department store chain. In 1966, the Higgins decided to return to private studio work and set up their offices in Riverside. The website notes that “here they were free to set their own goals, meet their own standards and design in the direction their hearts and minds led them.” There’s a lot of history in Higgins, and the Wimmers are proud of their work and the company.

65 Years and The Tradition Continues! Unique objects of fused, enameled and molded glass all hand made in our studio.
