The Hinsdale Humane Society raised $600 in combined raffle, cash and gift card donations, leading staff to declare the kitten shower an annual event.

Local villages included in suit over 2013 flooding By NATHAN LURZ nlurz@shawmedia.com A national insurance company has filed a lawsuit against 20 DuPage County municipalities, including Hinsdale, Clarendon Hills, Willowbrook and Oak Brook, alleging they failed to take necessary steps to prevent and limit damage from the flooding of April 2013. Illinois Farmers Insurance Company and its subsidiaries filed a proposed class action lawsuit April 17 on behalf of itself, other insurance companies and all those effected by what the suit calls “reasonably manageable” rains April 17 and 18 of last year. In some areas of DuPage County, the total rainfall was greater than 7 inches during that time, according to the National Weather Service. Had the various defendants properly prepared for

the event and done their “duty to exercise ordinary care to maintain (their) property in a reasonably safe condition,” as stated in Illinois Statute, the suit alleges the damage would not have been so great. “Based upon prior sewer water invasions, this Defendant knew that members of the Plaintiff Class would be foreseeable injured by breaches of these statutory duties,” the

suit states. Farmers said in the suit that the flooding, which caused Gov. Pat Quinn to declare 48 counties disaster areas, could have been mitigated by better management of retention and detention basins, proper operation of tributary open and enclosed sewers and drains, and the erection of proper barriers. The lawsuit alleges the

However, residents were subjected to “sudden, dangerous and calamitous occurrences” that were so climactic that “elderly men and women and young children were forced to evacuate parts or all of their homes because of safety concerns.” Public works and village officials from Hinsdale, Clarendon Hills, Willowbrook and Oak Brook chose not to comment on the pending litigation. Similar suits were also filed in Cook, DeKalb, Kane, Kend-

all, Lake, McHenry and LaSalle counties, according to documents provided by Farmers officials. DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office spokesperson Paul Darrah said Tuesday that the county was served late last week, but will not comment on pending litigation. DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office spokesperson Paul Darrah said that the county is aware of the suit, but hadn’t yet been served. Farmers Insurance Media Relations Director Luis Sahagun declined to comment further on the suit, but offered a statement via email. “Farmers has taken what we believe is the necessary action to recover payments made on behalf of our customers, for damages caused by what we believe to be a completely preventable issue, as well as prevent it from happening again,” he said.

HINSDALE – Following unanimous approval by the Community Consolidated School District 181 Board of Education at a special meeting A p r i l 2 , D o n Don White was hired White as the new superintendent, effective May 27. White was presented with a three-year contract at a base salary of $232,500, according to a District 181 news release. He will fill the position vacated by Superintendent Renee Schuster, who has led the district since July 2010. In February, Schuster was released from her contract per her request. An administrator in Illinois schools since 1991, White has had several education leadership positions. Most recently, he served as the superintendent of

Troy Community Consolidated School District 30-C since July 2007, an elementary district in Plainfield with seven schools and about 4,500 students. His experience also includes superintendent positions with Pekin Public Schools District 108 and Pleasant Plains Community Unit School District 8. The District 181 Board of Education hired BWP & Associates to conduct the search for the incoming superintendent. The process included a survey, interviews and focus groups to develop a candidate profile that served as a guide during candidate screening and subsequent interviews. The firm received applications from 43 candidates and narrowed the field to six semifinalists. B o a r d m e m b e r s i n t e rviewed the semifinalists and asked for the top three candidates to return for interviews with staff association leaders, school administrators and district administrators.

HC clubs reach out to Chicago public school

at Carriage Greens CC 8700 Carriage Green Dr, Darien, IL 60561

By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – The spirit of giving has been alive and well throughout the year at Hinsdale Central High School, as several clubs have enacted fundraisers and activities benefiting fellow area schools. That tradition continued April 27 when current Hinsdale Central teachers, retirees and clubs, including Students Assisting Students, FCCLA and Future Educators of America, collaborated to paint and transform four classrooms and three washrooms at Chicago’s John Hay Community Academy. “I’m huge on giving students experiences that open their eyes,” Hinsdale Central teacher and clubs adviser Dawn Oler said. “I think that is so important for them to see other things other than what they know, and this was an opportunity for them to do it.” During the all-day work outing, students from the clubs painted classrooms, made minor repairs and interacted with John Hay staff about the differences in education equity around the state. “I had several students who came up to me and said, ‘I had no idea; I had never been in a Chicago Public School before, I just figured every school was like ours,’ ” Oler said. Retired Hinsdale Central teacher Dick Flesher is the founder of Schools Count Corp., which gathers supplies for undeserved schools around the country. Recently, Oler contacted Flesher inquiring if

any area schools were in need painting and would welcome the clubs. As a result, John Hay was a perfect fit. “The students are always looking for some hands on projects that they can do to give back to the local community,” she said. The work day had been in the planning stages for most of the year, Oler said. The clubs’ members raised money for the project through various fundraisers, such as hosting bake sales and selling gift cards for the paint. By doing so, students generated about $1,000 for the project. While some of the students had never painted before, they all enjoyed working for a greater good alongside fellow classmates, Oler said. John Hay Academy staff and students also appreciated the students’ time and dedication. “The faculty was so appreciative of it,” she said. “The students were so excited they had no idea that they were going to come in and have those rooms painted.” This just one of several community projects the Hinsdale Central clubs completed in the 2013-14 school year. Students also helped organize a school supply donation fundraiser benefit ting Washington Community High School after tornadoes devastated the area, and participated in a “Caroling for Coats” program, which collected jackets for Chicago area public school students. “The kids do a great thing and they look forward to things like this every year,” she said.

Americans deserve an Obamacare watchdog In a recent victory lap, President Obama announced more than 8 million Americans have signed up for Obamacare, and, in his view, “the repeal debate is and should be over. The Affordable Care Act is working.” But there are significant problems with the president’s assertions. The American people remain deeply unhappy about a law increasing out-of-pocket health care costs for millions and taking away their choices. A recent congressional investigation revealed only 67 percent of individuals and families who selected a health care plan from the federal marketplace have paid their first month’s premium – laying waste to the 8 VIEWS million figure the adminisPeter tration has been touting. Roskam The actual enrollment numbers have been closely hidden by the administration for months and were only obtained through inquiries directly to insurance companies, underscoring what has been a constant challenge for anyone trying to monitor the health care law’s progress: because the president’s legacy is so tied to the success of Obamacare, the Administration is hiding information, dissembling facts and changing the rules as they go, all in service of their own political needs. To get to the truth about the law and its implementation, I recently introduced legislation to create a Special Inspector General for Monitoring the Affordable Care Act, or SIGMA. An independent, nonpartisan special inspector general will offer Americans the complete picture of Obamacare, including what decisions are being made, how the law is performing and how it will impact American families. Currently, no single oversight official has the power to get all the info about a law unprecedented in both size and scope. At over 900 pages, with thousands more pages of regulations, the massive health care law will impact one-sixth of our economy and effect every American’s personal health care choices. SIGMA will have the authority to examine the entirety of the law, obtaining info from every one of the nine agencies and hundreds of new programs playing a role in Obamacare’s implementation. A special inspector general would finally give the public a true accounting of the health care law, bringing much-needed transparency to a government program impacting millions of Americans. Armed with better information, the American people and policy makers can determine the best way to stop the worst parts of the law, and craft health care reforms which actually uphold the promise of quality, affordable health care.

Happy anniversary to the Hinsdale Embroiderers’ Guild, which is celebrating 50 years of needlework in 2014. To commemorate the milestone, the guild held a stitching show Friday and Saturday in Glen Ellyn where members displayed about 300 items. The 40-plus member guild has been a staple of the Hinsdale community for half a century, and we are extremely honored to join in the celebration. Congratulations to Liz and Ray Shishkoff, who welcomed their new daughter, Charlotte, into the world April 29. While en route to the hospital, Liz’s contractions intensified, and Ray ultimately delivered Charlotte on the side of I-88 in Oak Brook. We are thrilled to hear the delivery went as smooth as possible and the mother and baby are happy and resting comfortably.

Thanks to broken ankle helpers On the Ides of March, as I was trudging along the sidewalk in front of the apartments at the corner of Franklin and Forest streets, I slipped on a patch of ice and went down like a snapped piece of asparagus. Two kind women stopped to help me: one a jogger who was on Franklin, the other driving a white van westward. It was a cold day, and they stayed with me while I tried to decide whether I could stand on the ankle. Soon I realized there was no way I could stand, and the jogger called 911 for me. The other woman, because I was sitting on ice, gave her coat for me to sit on – and it was a very cold day. I saw her shivering. In addition to these kind and helpful women, the paramedics were gentle and efficient. I was wearing UGG boots – boots with no zipper that have to be tugged on and off. The kind paramedic eased the boot off the ankle – which turned out to be broken – so gently that I never felt it. I thank these people, as well as others who stopped to help, deeply, from my heart.

Play outdoors more To whom it may concern at Downers Grove Suburban Life. I could not agree more with the April 16 Community Voice column in your paper titled, “The importance of outdoor play at camp.” I was in outdoor camps similar to the Park District’s Adventure Camp when I was a kid, and if it weren’t for that, I probably wouldn’t be involved in Boy Scouts, cross country or track at my high school. With our society becoming more attached to technology, it only becomes more important for kids to learn to interact and to be active at an early age. We are really lucky to have the park district that we do. It’s the envy of many surrounding suburbs.

So the Illinois State Constitution says that being a member of a state retirement system is a contract that can’t have its benefits cut or reduced. So how can the current governor, or the guy who might replace him, change things so retired teachers, cops or state workers get less of a pension? A governor can’t single-handedly amend the constitution, can he? Oops, this is Illinois. I wonder.

Clarendon Hills officials execute Downtown Master Plan for redevelopment By DANNY CIAMPRONE | dciamprone@shawmedia.com

I

n a town with a population of about 8,000 – one of the smallest in DuPage County – a plan to redevelop the village isn’t just put on the shoulders of the local officials, but the people who embody the town. “We have a terrific downtown,” said Greg Jordan, chairman of the master plan land use committee. “I don’t think there’s anyone who doesn’t believe that with certain changes that it could be even better.”

On April 30, committee chairs gave a comprehensive update on the progress of the village’s Downtown Master Plan to residents, the Village Board of Trustees, the Zoning Board of Appeals/Plan Commission and the Downtown Design Review Commission. Community Development Director Dan Ungerleider said this was a “big moment” for the downtown master plan project, as the committees sought input from the board on whether to move forward into the public hearing process or “go back to the drawing board.” Since December 2012, volunteers and staff have been working to update the Downtown Master Plan, tirelessly gathering input from the

community along the way. “This has been a volunteer driven project,” he said. “We’ve had no paid consultants on the [committee] boards.” While much of the presentation was well received by Clarendon Hills trustees, there were some elements that raised concerns, mainly with allowing for five-story buildings. “If even one of these buildings could tower over the rest of the downtown and that size of the building perhaps taken out of context would alter the small town charm of the village,” Clarendon Hills trustee Eric Stach said. Land use committee chairman Greg Jordan said that while none of the committees want to maximize

the height of all the buildings, he thought the village should be flexible and receptive to a taller building under the correct circumstances. While the board didn’t take a formal vote, the trustees approved of the direction and instructed the committees to finish a draft. The next steps include taking the draft before a public hearing to the zoning board, planning commission and downtown review commission. There is then a public hearing and recommendations would be made to approve, change or deny the draft. It would then go back to the Board of Trustees for formal adoption. “There’s lots of steps though and it’s a long process,” Ungerleider said.

What about the master plan? By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com The village of Clarendon Hills assigned three committees to complete portions of the Downtown Master Plan. Each committee presented to the Village Board on April 30.

Land use The main factor the land use committee has worked on is fostering an environment where private capital can come into the village, according to Greg Jordan, chair of the master plan land use committee. “This is not generally a project driven by the idea of public funds,” he said. Jordan explained the goal is to keep what residents love about the village, simultaneously maximizing the downtown’s value to the people and environment in a positive and progressive fashion. Some of those ideas include incorporating more retail and exploring the idea of converting the Village Hall, library, the post office and the Metra station into a multi-use facility that houses all properties. “Then what happens with that is it would free up the utilization of Village Hall property, and the library property, the post office property and you could have flexibility with that property,” he said. The master plan would also grant residents a place to showcase artwork. “We want to encourage people to

Design The initial design of the master plan was on display during the meeting as the committee presented designs’ focal points and discussed the amenities that residents have expressed interest in. Design committee chairman Mike Abraham and the rest of the committee members have identified residents’ fa-

vorite downtown characteristics, which was gathered via community surveys. One major design idea includes incorporating several public plazas along Prospect Avenue, from Burlington Avenue to Park Avenue. The designs also include a Park Avenue bikeway, an open creek/water feature and a bikeway that would run from Hinsdale to Westmont. “Not just on one side of the tracks but on both sides of the tracks,” Abraham said.

There are also no public restrooms on third floor, forcing sporting events guests to go down to the second floor; additionally, the school’s elevator is also not centrally located and the nurse’s office is three floors away from the gym, where most physical activity occurs. 8. My school is safe and a secure facility Results: 60 percent disagreed, citing the lack of standardized audible communication throughout the building, which makes it difficult to hear the bell and announcements. “Making the best of undesirable situations has become the standard at Hinsdale Middle School,” Sledz said, reiterating one teacher’s response. “Unfortunately, over time this is not consistent with best practice and learning for all. The recent problems experienced at the school signify the concerns that staff members have been expressing for years.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

HINSDALE – Some familiar faces on the District 86 Board of Education took on new roles at the Committee of the Whole meeting Monday. Each elected board officers, including president, vice president and secretary, will now serve a one-year term, according to board policy. “I’ve had the wonderful privilege of leading this board for the past few months,” former school board president Claudia Manley said. “We currently have a vastly talented and professional board with many varying skills in various areas.” Manley then opened the floor for nominations for the role of district school board president. The final vote was 4-3 to elect Richard Skoda as the new board president over school board member Kay Gallo.

Voting results School board president: Richard Skoda elected 4-3 School board vice president: Ed Corcoran elected 5-2 School board secretary: Victor Casisni elected 7-0 School board treasurer: Bill Eagan elected 7-0 “I’d like to thank the confidence the board has expressed in me,” Skoda said. “Secondly, I would like to thank Mrs. Manley for her service the past year. She had a great eye to detail and is very much appreciated.” School board member Ed Corcoran retained his role as vice president, and school board member Victor Casini was elected as the new school board secretary. Chief Financial Officer Bill Eagan was also elected unanimously as treasurer.

Approval of D-86 members’ access to documents delayed By DANNY CIAMPRONE dciamprone@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – A discussion of the revised policy regarding Hinsdale Township High School District 86 board members’ access to district documents, verbatim recordings and buildings took place Monday, but final approval of the revisions was again delayed in order answer all board member questions. Revised policy 2:225 comes in the wake of a settled lawsuit with former District 86 school board member Dianne Barrett. According to the revisions, all district board members are entitled to: “Access to documents subject to applicable federal and state law and the provisions of this policy, full access to documents necessary and relevant to a board member’s exercise of official duties that are maintained by, or in

possession of District 86, including personnel and student records.” While making a request, the member may be required to execute a written form of agreement acknowledging responsibility to maintain the confidential nature (if any) of requested documents, and shall not re-disclose any confidential information contained therein, according to the policy. At the April 21 Board of Education meeting, some members of the board expressed concerns for student privacy and tabled the vote until the meeting Monday to approve revisions.

District 86 elects new school board president


Indian Chinese cuisine goes back over 100 years when people of Chinese origin moved to India across the North East Border and settled in Calcutta. Most of these immigrants were of Hakka ancestry. Over the years they adapted the Chinese cuisine for the locale Indian seasoning and cooking techniques. This is how Indian Chinese fusion began.

LETTERS Teachers deserve to be treated as professionals

Decisions aren’t always the best for the students

Dear Suburban Life, I have attended many Hinsdale District 86 board meetings over the years, but I have never seen the incivility that I have recently witnessed from certain board members at these meetings. This does not bode well for our district, nor, more specifically, for the teacher contract negotiations that are going on this spring. In those contract meetings, I implore the board members to remember that they are representatives of a community that prides itself on its excellent schools. That excellence is evidenced by the high standings our schools have achieved on recent rankings, both state and national. We, the community, understand that this reputation is due to the fine educators that have been so carefully selected for our district in an intensive hiring process. Many District 86 teachers have doctorates, or close to it, due to their hours of coursework taken to improve their teaching. The enviable reputation of our schools will not be helped by the board’s hiring of expensive business staff, but by insuring that we keep the excellent teachers that we now have. The resignations of the superintendent and both schools’ principals in the last year makes it even more critical that we support the current educational staff and their decades of experience in this district. My message to the board is that our teachers are professionals who deserve to be treated as such both in their dealings with the school board and in their salaries and benefits.

Dear Suburban Life, School boards are elected to represent the public in the delivery of education. The board’s key mechanism of doing so is through the establishment of policies that serve as a guide for the district administrators (not board members) to manage the schools on a day-to-day basis. An effective board should understand that the value of their success and the success of district administrators is best judged by student achievement. This is their return on investment! When considering extending the school year, the District 86 administration and board indicated a major reason was to make-up missed instruction time. Yet, there was no talk of pushing back graduation. Did seniors not lose the same days the rest of the students lost? Ultimately, the decision was made to maintain a June 6 yearend. Then, a new final schedule was created that appears to reduce “valuable” instruction time. Teachers are limited to teaching material that cannot be on the final or applied to grades. If finals were not changed, students would have instruction time up to the day of their finals. Instead, they now will take finals during their regular class time and across multiple days, while also dealing with all the other disruptions that a regular day includes. Yes, instruction time has technically been increased, but where is the value (return on investment) of this instruction time given all the constraints. It doesn’t appear to me that the decisions being made are the “best” ones for the students they are supposed to be focused on.

May 15 – Last day for public comment period June 2014 – Bridge design complete with filing of ICC petition Summer 2014 – Preparation of final bid documents and ICC hearing October-December 2014 – Fi“Our tree experts are working closely with the village’s experts to minimize impacts,” HR Green civil design engineer Scott Creech said at the April 29 Hinsdale Village Board of Trustees meeting. Creech added that Oak Street conditions will be improved on a stretch of road, 100 feet south of Chicago Avenue to 50 feet north of Walnut Street, as well as 600 feet of Hillgrove Avenue, from Oak Street east to County Line Road. Repairs and improvements will also be made to both sides of the Chicago Street intersection.

nal submission to village IDOT March 2015 – Bids opened by IDOT May 2015 – Construction begins December 2015 – Project “substantially” complete and open to traffic Spring 2016 – Final landscaping Traffic congestion was a concern raised during public meetings and focus groups on bridge construction, but Village President Tom Cauley said it’s the village’s position to keep the same level of traffic flow over the bridge, post construction, that exists today. He also said Hinsdale Police Chief Brad Bloom is working out a traffic plan, which will be implemented after construction is completed. “The implementation of that plan is something we could talk about after that bridge has been constructed,”

Know more For more information and to submit comments, visit oakstreetbridgeproject.com. Cauley said. “The way it works is that while the bridge is being constructed, we have to comply with federal and state laws, we have to make sure we do everything to hit the funding to complete the bridge. After the bridge is completed, it becomes the property of the village and we have a lot more freedom to talk about what we want to do.” The project is now into Phase ll, the design phase, and several residents have provided valuable input regarding the bridge’s form and appearance. “It was very clear that the desire is the bridge is not just a standard IDOT bridge, so we looked at a number of options that it should look like,” Hitchcock Design Group principal

landscape architect Tim King said. The consensus from residents is that bridge’s design should align with Highland Station details, and that the bridge should slope gradually on each side, reducing impact to existing trees. “In the end, two trees will be planted for every one tree that is removed,” he said. After public feedback ends in May, Creech said design and roadway layouts will be completed complete in June. Thereafter, Illinois Commerce Commission petitions will be submitted, construction documents will be turned in to the village and IDOT will then set up a bid opening in March 2015. “If that all lines up, then that should see a construction start in May 2015 with a substantial completion of the project in December with landscaping to occur in the spring of 2016,” Creech said. “It’s a fairly aggressive schedule.”

• ACCESS Continued from page 17 notification sent to the parent, or a written permission that it’s okay,” Planson said. Former school board president Claudia Manley said that’s a question the board would have to seek input from legal council. “I think the parent should be informed, but I think based on the way [the policy] is written the parent doesn’t have a choice, and that’s unfortunate,” school board member Michael Kuhn said. Kuhn believes until all issues are vetted with the district’s attorney, and until all seven members of the school board have an understanding on what the ramifications are going to be by approving the policy, he would not feel comfortable voting on it. Manley asked that board members lay out all their questions so the board could get those answered by the next school board meeting and then take a final vote. “I would like everybody to be as comfortable as possible,” Manley said.

HINSDALE – The Oak Street Bridge replacement project is moving ahead as scheduled, but the May 15 cutoff date for the residents’ feedback is approaching. Workers and local officials recently completed initial engineering phase and will soon move into the project’s second phase – design. Hinsdale officials expect that bridge construction will begin in May 2015. Currently, the village is wrapping up the engineering design phase, in which it was determined that the bridge height will be raised from 20 to 23 feet above BNSF, roadway will be expanded to two lanes and bridge sidewalks will be installed near the guard rail. The designs also incorporate a four-way stop at Oak Street and Chicago Avenue, as well as minimizing the impact to trees.

8NEWS BRIEFS Police to enforce Click it or Ticket Campaign

Skip Strittmatter her plans to retire in July

HINSDALE – Starting Friday, the Hinsdale Police Department will initiate its Click it or Ticket Campaign in an effort to “strongly enforce” seat belt laws, according to a news release from the Hinsdale Police Department. In Illinois, as of Jan. 1, 2012, all drivers and passengers must wear seat belts in all seating positions in the car, not just the front seat. During statewide observational surveys conducted by IDOT in 2013, the overall usage rate for rear seat occupants was 77.4 percent versus 93.7 percent for drivers and front seat passengers, according to the release. While this year’s Click It or Ticket Campaign runs from Friday through May 26, officers are out enforcing seat belt laws year-round. For information, visit buckleupillinois.org.

OAK BROOK – Skip Strittmatter announced her plans to retire from the DuPage Convention and Visitors Bureau in July, but this may change depending on the timeframe for naming her successor, according to a news release from the visitors bureau. Strittmatter plans to remain available as an adviser to the new director, as needed, to ensure a smooth leadership transition, said the release. Strittmatter celebrated 20 years with the visitors bureau Dec. 6, 2013. During her tenure, the bureau’s budget has grown from $50,000 to more than $2.5 million, according to the release. A search team has been appointed by the board, which includes Strittmatter. An executive search is underway to determine her replacement.

Restaurant reviews

Paisans pleases with more than pizza BERWYN – Walking past a colorful case of freshly made gelato on my way to the host stand at Paisans in Berwyn, I contemplated skipping lunch completely and ordering the largest bowl of Oreo cheesecake flavor I could dig a spoon into. Thankfully, our waiter suggested trying any of the gourmet burgers on the menu before diving into dessert, so I didn’t fill my stomach completely with the chocolate temptation. As my companion and I poured over pages of the menu narrowing down our meal options in an oversized booth, I couldn’t help but look around the industrial-chic restaurant. Modern and welcoming, it offers a variety of spacious seating areas. Brick and steel frame the high-ceilinged space, where scattered tanks of live fish add organic kinetic art to the high-octane vibe. I felt comfortable in my jeans and T-shirt, but so did the sundress-sporting baby shower guests in an event area across the way. As if I weren’t impressed enough before even tasting a bite, our waiter offered to put the White Sox game on a few of the flat screens that hover from the ceiling. This was definitely my kind of place. Fear not northsiders, when another patron asked to see the Cubbies, a few other

Gourmet burger fans and those looking for something fresh off the grill will find plenty to savor in an inventive setting. screens switched on the game. By that time, I was digging into our sampler appetizer and hardly noticed. We couldn’t decide, so we settled on a little of everything. The Paisans Sampler of calamari, Pete’s bone-in mild wings, potato skins, fried mushrooms, onion rings and pizza bread didn’t last long. I stopped myself a couple wings and about half a potato skin short of full to save room for the burger I’d ordered at our

waiter’s suggestion. When he brought it over on a wooden cutting board accompanied by a fry-filled tin can and pickle, I was thankful to still have an appetite. I had selected The Ogden Avenue, in which Paisans piles a half-pound patty with barbecue pulled pork, cheddar cheese, pickles and crispy onion strings on a pretzel bun. And yes, it was just as delicious as it sounds. My carnivorous companion

insisted he try the hand-tossed pizza, and ordered his own 12-inch pie topped with pepperoni, bacon and sausage. Although I might have switched one of the meats for a veggie, I happily helped myself to a piece. The pan style crust and sauce held their own even with all the toppings, and convinced me that three meats may not be too many for a Paisans pizza, the family business’ longtime specialty. I don’t regret my Ogden

Avenue choice one bit, but when I go back, there’s a plate of homemade linguine arrabiata begging me to try its garlic, crushed red pepper, basil, plum tomatoes and white wine sauce. Since I’d already thrown my ideas about Paisans being strictly an Italian place out the window when I bit into that pretzel bun, I’m tempted to order the kicked-up nachos as an appetizer. Featuring a full bar, the restaurant also tempts with salads, ribs, steak, sandwiches, classic Italian entrees and inhouse treats by the pastry chef. Finally, it really was time for dessert. Even though the cooler of gelato had me salivating the moment we walked in, I couldn’t deny myself the funnel cake, which was wonderfully decadent. I’ll use the gelato as a sweet excuse to return soon. Paisans offers free valet parking Thursday through Sunday evenings, an especially convenient perk. It also has locations in Brookfield and Cicero.

Only one goal

Despite roster shuffle, Hinsdale Central will settle for nothing but state title

By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – When you’ve had as much success as Hinsdale Central’s boys tennis program has, there are no small goals. So even though the Red Devils endured a little bit of drama with Michael Lorenzini, last year’s third-place singles player, leaving the team to focus on USTA tournaments, they haven’t altered what they hope to accomplish. “We want to win state,” head coach John Naisbitt said. “We want to win our third straight state title. We have very clear goals and we’re very focused. That’s a big part of any team – having clear goals and having everyone pulling on the same end of the rope.” Lorenzini helped the Red Devils win the DecoTurf Team Championships tournament in March before leaving the team, but Central hasn’t missed a beat. It simply shifted the lineup and then went on to win titles at the Downers Grove South/Benet invite, its own Jay Kramer invite and Hersey’s Pitchford invite. Junior Martin Joyce, the defending state singles champion and an Ohio State recruit, went from playing first doubles with Chase Hamilton back to No. 1 singles. Junior Eddie Grabill, who teamed up with Harold Martin to win a doubles state title last spring, is currently manning No. 2 singles. His lone loss of the season was against Joyce. Hamilton, a senior and Valparaiso recruit, is paired with Lope Adelakun at No. 1 doubles. “We got rid of Martin and Chase as a doubles team, and all Chase and Lope have done is gone undefeated since we

Hamilton and doubles partner Lope Adelakun are unbeaten since being paired together earlier this season. put them together,” Naisbitt said. “In eight or nine days, they could solidly be the No. 1 seed in the state. They’re very dynamic.” The No. 2 doubles team and Jimmy Bruning and Mike Czlonka placed third at the Kramer and second at the Pitchford.

Grabill’s ability to hold down his spot at singles has been key, Naisbitt said. “He’s the reason we can pull this off,” the coach said. “He’s going to be a hard out in the [state] tournament. He’s just tough. He’s got a great return game.” Lyons Township figures

to be the stiffest competition when Central hosts its own sectional May 24, and the Red Devils just defeated the Lions 7-0 in a dual meet Tuesday to remain undefeated. Having Joyce, Grabill and Hamilton, who was all-state as a sophomore, on the team will help the Red Devils as they go

for another state title. “Those are who I call the big three and they’re going to lead us, figuratively and literally, through state,” Naisbitt said. “Having people who have been in and around the state tournament and can show our players who haven’t what it’s about can only help.”

Hinsdale South’s Lucas Carlson takes a cut in Saturday’s road game against Downers Grove South. The Hornets fell 10-3 in the game and lost the West Suburban Gold series.

Bats go cold for Hinsdale South against Mustangs SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA DARIEN – Hinsdale South’s baseball team entered its series against Downers Grove South with a chance to make some noise in the West Suburban Gold standings. But the offense abandoned the Hornets during the threegame set and the Mustangs took all three games by outscoring Hinsdale 18-3. The Hornets hosted the finale on Monday and lost 3-0. All four hits for the home team were singles. Joe Jablonski had a hit and drew two walks, and Matt Marrera, Mike Meyers and Eric Benson had the other hits. A six-run fourth inning was the major blow for Downers Grove South in Saturday’s 10-3 contest.

Hinsdale South trimmed a 2-0 deficit to 2-1 in the top of the third. Marrera laced a leadoff double, was sacrificed to third by Brian Hoel and came home on Joe Oehmen’s sac fly. The Mustangs added a run in the bottom half of the frame. When the Hornets scored twice in the sixth, DGS added an insurance run it its half of the inning. Jablonski singled to start the sixth and Tom Mihalkanin came in to run for the catcher. Alex Carpenter and Dean Serritella were both hit by pitches to load the bases. Mihalkanin scored on Marrera’s groundout and Carpenter scored on a passed ball. The Mustangs won the first game of the series 5-0 on May 2.

Against Oak Park-River Forest on Tuesday, Oehmen went 2-for-4 with a run and RBI, but the Hornets lost 11-4. South grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but the Huskies responded with three runs in their half of the frame. The Hornets scored three times in the third to retake the lead, but OPRF plated three runs in the third, then added insurance runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Mike Mullaney, Seritella and Benson scored one run each, while Meyers and Hoel had one RBI apiece. South returns to WSG action Saturday when it hosts Willowbrook for a doubleheader starting at 10 a.m. The series continues at 4:30 p.m. Monday in Villa Park.

Heart attack in a Fog

Get in your order at home: ‘Hey Cookie, make mine a heart attack in a fog’ by Jim Hillibish More Content Now

Y

ou might need to go back to your great-grandfather to hear stories about the plate of food that saved the nation. The Blue Plate Special is nearly long gone, as are the street-corner diners that slopped them by the millions. During the Great Depression, simple Blue Plates were the cheapest hot meals, costing a nickel to a dime. They fed the cash-starved nation, sold all day and into the late night. If you had the coin, you could eat heartily, as Blue Plates were healthy by today’s standards. Food historian Kevin Reed traces the name to a dish manufacturer who turned out cheap dinner plates with three segments, similar to a frozendinner tray. All were blue, as that was cheapest color. The three segments held the three elements of all Blue Plates: Meat, vegetables and potatoes. The plates made their way into nearly all of the nation’s 10,000 diners. Reed said the dish segments saved money on

dish washing — no need for multiple plates. “By 1937, one million people were eating at least one meal a day in diners,” he said, and they ordered the most food for the money, Blue Plates. The name does not describe a speciic recipe. Blue Plates changed daily, like today’s specials. They always were made from cheap foods, such as ground beef, potatoes, gravies and canned goods. Mixed vegetables (corn, carrots and peas) were a must. The recipes were designed for mass production, made ahead and taking only minutes to reheat, or they parked in cauldrons on the stove. Food-culture observers Jane and Michael Stern traced the modern versions in their 2001 “Blue Plate Specials and Blue Ribbon Chefs.” Their cross-country marathon stopping at every diner along the way revealed Blue Plates are alive in small, cozy eateries stuck in the 1930s. “They still are the heart and soul of America,” they concluded. Randy Garbin of Roadside Magazine welcomes

the tenuous reprise of Blue Plate Specials. “We are nostalgic for this time because we realize that in our mad rush to the 21st century we have thrown away and paved over many of the good and simple things in life. For many, all that is left is some Disneyesque diner wannabe in a barren strip mall.” Just don’t expect to ind the specials at McDonald’s, and the prices are more like $6.95 and up. Denny’s and Bob Evans still take a stab at them. You can recreate the classic Blues at home. The recipes were hoarded from the 1930s. They still are cheap, but you can hardly get the glass of water for a nickel. These below are the main courses. Be sure to add canned mixed vegetables in the alley (side dish) and perhaps a rack (biscuit) if you’re in the mood.
