LISLE – A mile-long trail of trees is attracting crowds at The Morton Arboretum in Lisle. The Arboretum’s inaugural Illumination: Tree Lights debuted last month and continues through Jan. 4. “We wanted to offer visitors an opportunity to experience trees in a different way,” said Anamari Dorgan, director of education with the Arboretum. “[The event] is cool because it’s a combination of cutting edge light technology combined with the beautiful landscape of the arboretum.” The event is put together by designers from Lightswitch Architectural, a lighting and visual design company, the arboretum staff and more than 800 arboretum volunteers. Dorgan said the event was created as a way to encourage residents to experience the winter landscape and learn more about the arboretum at a time when they would not

WOODRIDGE – The death of a Lisle man is now being investigated as a possible homicide, according to DuPage County Chief Deputy Coroner Charlie Dastych. The skeletal remains of Anthony Scott Arcaro, 37, were found at about 1:30 p.m. March 30 by two young boys walking through a wooded area in the 7900 block of Lemont Road in Woodridge.

Arcaro was shot in the head, according to State’s attorney spokesman, Paul Darrah, who said he could not share any more information. Woodridge Deputy Chief Tom Stefanson said police have “some avenues we’re investigating,” but also would not comment further. Prior to March, Arcaro had been missing since 2007. It is unclear if Arcaro’s death occurred in Woodridge.

Ask Dr. Webster

Q: We’re planning a trip to Europe. Any tips you can give us for dental care? A: Bon Voyage! The critical piece of advice is to visit your dentist at least a few weeks before leaving for a thorough exam and cleaning. If there’s anything that needs attention, you want to leave a window for the work to be done before you go. Knowing your mouth is in good shape eliminates one potential source of anxiety. After all, you’re not going to want to have to deal with a strange dentist in a foreign land. So get the work done here. Bring your dentist’s contact information with you so you can at least get in touch if there’s an emergency overseas. He or she will be able to advise you on how to proceed. Obviously, don’t forget to pack your basic dental equipment: toothbrush and toothpaste, floss, mouthwash and whatever other items you use regularly. Check TSA regulations as to what you can have in your carry-on bag. Sizes and types of tubes, containers and liquids and pastes fluctuate from time to time. Also pack some insurance information in case you need to visit a dentist while on your trip. And if you have to pay in full for services rendered, get a receipt that you may be able to use in claiming a reimbursement. Everyone’s situation, of course, is different. Make a conversation with your dentist part of your preparation for your trip. He or she can give you more information on what you should do to prevent a dental problem from hampering your full enjoyment.

the board in the ’80s when her two children were accepted into the orchestra. “I wished I had something like that when I was that age,” said Foss, a Downers Grove native and current Glen Ellyn resident. “And I didn’t, and therefore I wanted other kids to have that opportunity. It gives the kids more difficult music. It’s still on their level – actually some of it’s above their level. Mr. Tham is good about bringing them up to a pretty high standard.” In the group, her daughter, Pam, played bassoon and her son, Fritz, played French horn, as he does now professionally with the Lyric Opera.

The musicians in the Youth Symphony of DuPage are regularly accompanied by professional musicians and other guest adults, but at the organization’s 50th anniversary concert this month, they will play a piece incorporating sounds much older. For the special anniversary concert, the symphony will play with a recent recording of 2,400-year-old Chinese bronze bells. The orchestral piece was written by Chinese composer Tan Dun, and will be conducted by the youth symphony’s conductor of more than 30 years, Meng-Kong Tham. Drawing more than 140 musicians between the ages of 10 and 18 from across the county, the Youth Symphony of Du Page has challenged talented youth musicians in DuPage County since its founding in 1963. Former Youth Symphony of DuPage President and current Board Secretary Jo Ann Foss joined

The organization has two different groups depending on skill level. The Concert Orchestra is for the intermediate musicians and the Symphony Orchestra is for the more advanced. The Symphony Orchestra regularly plays music written for adult musicians at its regular concerts at the Wentz Concert Hall. “When kids have an open mind about what they can do, they can do it,” she said. That was certainly true for Lisle 12-year-old Lydia Walquist. The seventh-grader was accepted into the Youth Symphony of DuPage last year after playing the viola for less than 12 months. It helped that she had a background in piano, and that her mom, Grace Walquist, helped to teach her. The Youth Symphony of DuPage “brought her to a whole new level,” Grace Walquist said. “Going into this orchestra has put her into a whole new caliber and experience. Musically, it challenged her almost like three levels up.”

Are you sufering with

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

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

Call for your

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.

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

DOWNERS GROVE – Maren Huber has been fascinated with bridges since her dad took her across the Golden Gate Bridge as a child on family vacation. Now a regular traveler, Huber has spent years photographing historic and unique bridges from coast to coast. So when she saw that her church, Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Downers Grove, needed a fundraising mechanism for its chartable support of Bridge Communities, the idea was nearly self-apparent. Now in its sixth year, Huber’s photo calendar collects season-appropriate bridge pictures from her various road trips for each of the 12 months. Each calendar is $10, and anonymous donors have pledges to chip in an additional $5 for every calendar sold. It is available at Anderson’s Bookshop in Downers Grove. Having enough pictures of different snow-covered bridges for the winter months of the calendar has proven to be the biggest challenge, the retired teacher said. “I have to travel to places when snow exists,” she said.

“And that’s not maybe the easiest thing to do.” Calendars have featured bridges surrounded by the fall colors and changing leaves in the northeast, as well as scenes in Wyoming, Texas, Florida and other locales. “My ultimate goal is to gather them all into a publication, and I’ll have something from every state,” she said. The famous covered bridges of Madison County, Iowa have graced the calendar’s pages, among others. “I’m interested in historic bridges,” she said. “And I’m interested in bridges when there’s only one or two of its kind left. I’m also interested in covered bridges. Those seem to be some of my most popular choices. Usually about one-third to onehalf of the calendar consists of covered bridges.” Bridge Communities provides transitional housing and other services to families in need in DuPage County. Gloria Dei typically “adopts” two families each year, gathering the funds for Bridge Communities to provide the housing and other help needed to get them get back their feet. “The goal is by the end of the [program] the family will be self-sufficient,” she said.

comments about gay people that, though he has since rescinded, would associate his kind of firebrand with our school, and that’s not OK,” Claes said. While Savage said she was against the addition of Chickfil-A on campus, she did not oppose continuing to work with Sodexo, which is considered an LGBT-friendly company, she said. Because Sodexo has access to many different licensees, she hoped it would consider introducing a different restaurant. Trustee Diane McGuire asked if the college had discussed its worries about the chicken chain with Sodexo. While Sodexo was aware of the concerns, the company felt Chick-fil-A was a partner it was comfortable doing business with, COD Senior Vice President Thomas Glaser said.

“While those issues were raised, we were left with the idea that Sodexo had values that were the same as College of DuPage, and we thought it was a good partnership for us to work with Sodexo to bring in Chick-fil-A, based upon additional revenues that could be generated by bringing that concept into COD,” Glaser said. Trustee Nancy Svoboda inquired whether it would be a deal breaker if the college were to approve a contract with Sodexo but request that Chick-fil-A not be included in its plans. However, the contract extension as proposed already included the concept of introducing Chick-fil-A and outlined associated revenue share and capital commitment items for both COD and Sodexo, Glaser said. The contract process would have to start over if the

extension were not approved. A January vacancy in the spot planned for Chick-fil-A would cause a decrease in anticipated revenue for the college, according to Glaser. McGuire joined Savage and Svoboda in voting against the contract extension with Sodexo, while trustees Erin Birt, Kathy Hamilton, Allison O’Donnell and Joseph Wozniak voted in favor. Student Trustee Stephanie Torres abstained. When discussing her take on the issue, Birt said the decision ultimately belongs in the hands of students. “Sometimes the position that I think I, at least, take is ‘leave it to the students to decide,’” she said. “I mean, it’s their dollar to make a vote for. If there’s something there and they don’t want to eat at Chickfil-A, there is another place for them to eat at.”

GLEN ELLYN – Plans to extend College of DuPage’s contract with food service provider Sodexo were met with opposition from some students and members of the Board of Trustees at the board’s meeting Nov. 21, because the contract extension includes bringing Chick-fil-A to campus by January. The contract is set to expire Aug. 4, 2016, and after a 4-to-3 vote, the college will renew it for three years, with the option of extending the contract for an additional four years. Those who voted against the extension worried about bringing a restaurant on campus that would make some students uncomfortable. The restaurant chain Chickfil-A has faced controversy in

the past for comments made by its leaders against gay marriage. “As a company, they certainly have a right to their own religious freedom and religious beliefs, but I’m concerned that we, as an institution, would be allowing our publicly funded institution to generate revenue for an organization that does not uphold our campus non-discrimination guidelines,” said Trustee Kim Savage, who moved to have the vote on the contract extension removed from the meeting’s consent agenda and added to the regular agenda. Similar concerns were shared by College of DuPage (COD) students who spoke during the meeting, including Marilyn Claes. “In the past, the Chick-fil-A former president and current CEO has made contentious

Every year, Americans eagerly anticipate the arrival of the holiday season. We look forward to seeing familiar faces, enjoying our favorite rituals and creating new memories. Now more than ever, we appreciate our families that provide us with love, support and stability all year long. As we give thanks this holiday season, so should we also remember those who are less fortunate and don’t have the care and safety of a stable home. November was National Adoption Month, and this COMMUNITY year, agencies focused on exVOICE panding adoption opportuniPeter ties for kids in the foster care Roskam system. In Illinois, there are almost 20,000 children in the foster care system and almost 3,000 are waiting to be adopted. Though foster care is supposed to be temporary, the average wait time in Illinois is an astounding 4½ years. That’s why my colleagues on the Ways and Means Committee and I worked to pass legislation encouraging adoption, so foster care kids can grow up in stable, encouraging homes that can put them on a path to success. This bill provides states with incentives to increase the adoption of older children, many of whom emancipate from the system without a family to call their own. It also makes sure that family members can claim guardianship to care for their nieces, nephews and grandchildren if their parents pass away. Lastly, this legislation ensures states maintain their commitment to post-adoption services. Boosting adoption rates not only gives foster children a sound home base, it also protects them as an at-risk population. Without the accountability and support that a family provides, children in the foster care system are more vulnerable to predators in the community, such as those engaged in human trafficking. According to the Cook County Commission, Chicago is considered one of the targeted locations for trafficking due to its “large airport, central geographic location, and elaborate transportation infrastructure.” To combat this real danger, I’ve helped advance legislation in Congress that strengthens data collection on sex trafficking in the foster care system, and another bill that strengthens penalties for people who “obtain, patronize, or solicit” prostituted child by recognizing them as guilty of human trafficking. First Lady Barbara Bush once said, “Family means putting your arms around each other and being there.” This time of year wouldn’t be the same without our family and friends, and we should be grateful for their presence in our lives every day. From my family to yours, I wish you all a safe and happy holiday season.

Mark Busch - mbusch@shawmedia.com

Noel Fortman, a Westmont resident and freshman at the University of Illinois, demonstrates how he composes music Friday at the Westmont Library. Fortman composed a classical music piece that was selected by The Zodiac Trio for a concert tour in China. college project that included composing an original piece, and when Fortman saw that Zodiac Trio had made an online “Call for Scores,” he submitted his composition. “I happened on their website and thought there’s no way I’m going to actually ever be involved,” Fortman said. “And if I had to write a piece for my

class anyway, why not?” It was an exciting moment for the music composition major as his piece was selected among others from professional composers who perform in large music halls, he said. “The piece I wrote for the Zodiac Trio took me about two hours,” he said. “It

wasn’t too long of a piece, but since I had to turn it in for a grade I spent time making sure everything was according to the assignment.” While he’s still in the beginning stages of his career, Fortman said this is one of the best times to be a composer. “You’re very much unlimited in way you can do,” Fortman said. “Restrictions that were in place are lifted and you have a lot more freedom than you used to.” His musical journey is far from over. “Right now, I’m just going to keep studying as much as I can and keep trying to get my pieces performed,” he said. Fortman said he hopes to one day move on to U of I’s music doctoral program – ultimately helping him become a professional composer.

Westmont man finds calling through helping kids Union League Boys & Girls Clubs give Sullivan a chance to make a difference By KRISTIN PEDICINI kpedicini@shawmedia.com WESTMONT – Looking back at when he first joined in 2002, Michael Sullivan said what first drew him to the Union League Boys & Girls Clubs was more than the great group of people he met Michael – he loved the Sullivan mission. Serving about 11,600 boys and girls in Chicago, the Union League Boys & Girls Clubs’ goal is to promote social, moral, phys-

ical, vocational and educational development of boys and girls residing in Chicago, according to the organization’s website. Throughout his time with the club, Sullivan has been on the volunteer association board, a trustee, an officer and is now in his second year as the boys and girls clubs’ president. He said it’s a lot of work but tremendously gratifying. “It’s transformed my life,” the Westmont resident said. “I fell in love with the organization and what it does.” After more than 10 years of service, Sullivan said it’s

the experience with the kids that brings him back year after year. “So many people get involved in charities and so many are wonderful but you can’t always witness the results,” he said. “Some of the things we’ve seen, it just keeps you coming back and compelled to do as much as you can. “Where our kids live, it’s hard for them to hope and dream. They often don’t have a lot of role models telling them they can be whatever they want to be and that they’re capable of going to college – our clubs provide that hope.” Throughout the year, the nonprofit organization hosts two main fundraisers, the most recent was the 36th annual Gala on Nov. 2.

The event raised more than $200,000, and funds raised will be used for the club’s six Chicago locations and an overnight camp in Wisconsin. “We’ve had great success with the gala,” Sullivan said. “It’s really a testament to our donors... It’s very exciting.” Whether it’s the gala or the wine dinner fundraiser – the club’s less formal event – Sullivan said none of it would be possible without the club’s staff. “We have the best staff of any nonprofit I’ve ever seen,” Sullivan said. “They’re so dedicated to affecting these kid a positive way and changing their lives “They literally change lives and transform communities every day.”

WESTMONT – Noel Fortman has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to his talent for music. The Westmont resident and current freshman at University of Illinois began playing piano at age 4, singing at age 6 and by high school was composing pieces. “I’ve always been involved with music since a very young age,” Fortman said. “But once I began composing, it appealed to me in ways that performance hadn’t before. “I found it fascinating; the things you can accomplish.” Recently, the 18-yearold Hinsdale Central High School graduate had one of his compositions chosen to be performed by Zodiac Trio, a classical music ensemble. The trio, who formed in 2006 at the Manhattan School of Music, has toured three continents, according to the group’s website.

To the caller of “Not a good solution,” who suggested that it would be cheaper to pay the penalty for not having insurance and continue to use the ER for health care – I have very good insurance. I have had to visit the ER several times, and I could tell you, I would hate to have to depend on the ER doctors for my health care. I have known of two cases where they had to be hospitalized and were released too soon because they had no insurance. Both died within days. If you don’t have anything else, you do need insurance.

Too much tolerance We have become a nation so tolerant that we are losing our Judeo-Christian values. We tolerate gay marriage, marijuana and abortion. We tolerate financial rewards for those who enter this country illegally. We tolerate a president who lies to us. Tolerance is destroying us. We are so willing to not judge. Every time we vote in an election, we judge. Every time we select a religion, or Realtor, our doctor, we judge. Judging means you are thinking. I urge people to stop saying they do not judge. If you do not judge, it means you tolerate everything and everyone. Is that why we have so much junk in our society today? No one is holding anyone to a high standard. They are so worried that it is judgmental. We need to admit that we all do judge, and we all need to judge the changes in our society. Tolerance can lead to a society without morals and without high standards for future generations.

Restaurant reviews

Sample some 1960s style at Kitchen Eatery ELMHURST – Imagine an upscale 1960s diner, if that’s not a contradiction in terms. Then add locally sourced, freshly prepared food. Combine with some good friends, and what you’ve got is a terrific meal at Kitchen Eatery. Located right at the corner of Route 83 and St. Charles Road in Elmhurst, Kitchen Eatery is an oasis of calm at a busy intersection otherwise crowded with retail and banking institutions. With a delightfully colorful sign that you can’t miss, it welcomes hungry guests with a generous helping of ’60s style. With wide booths, mod furnishings and a clean, well-lit atmosphere, Kitchen Eatery had me excited to sample its offerings on a recent evening, accompanied by two friends. Once settled into our seats in a comfortable side dining room, I quickly identified that the steak quesadilla was something I had to try. Believe me, I was not disappointed, as the typically simple dish was served with a delectable salsa verde that I was more than happy to consume in its entirety. Moving on to the main course, I doubled down on red meat by ordering the steak bowl, featuring seasoned grilled skirt steak atop two eggs (cooked any way you like; I opted for scrambled) and KE potatoes mixed with melted jack cheese, onions, bell peppers and mushrooms. It was like a perfect dream of what breakfast every day would taste like if our arteries (and wallets) could sustain such a thing. One of my friends opted for the grilled Scottish salmon, which comes with the vegetable of the day and herb-roasted potatoes. She asked if she could substitute french fries, and they were happy to oblige. As someone who frequently orders fish, she’s not easy to please, but was more than satisfied with the filet here. The other companion went for the steak salad, which tops a mix of arugula, roasted

BOSE

Bose Soundlink Mini

$199 Sleek, compact and the best sound in its class, the ultra-compact wireless Bose Soundlink Mini will appeal to almost anyone on your list. This palm-sized speaker is easy to use with simple, clearly labeled buttons and includes a bundled charging cradle you can leave plugged in. It remembers up to six devices, so you’ll only need to sync each one once. bose.com

he hottest tech gifts are usually the most appreciated. This season’s best gadgets include a watch that does much more than keep time, a small but mighty speaker and an ingenious desktop organizer.

Martian G2G smartwatch $249 With a retro look and an eye on the future, the Martian G2G is an analog watch with voice command technology. Once connected to Bluetooth, the G2G is a hands-free speakerphone that can display incoming text messages and emails with the tap of a button. The slightly rectangular G2G comes with colored faces and matching silicone bands, and black and white models that all look more stylish than geeky. martianwatches. com

3Doodler

Justick Desktop

$75 The size of a fat Cuban cigar, the 3Doodler is a handheld 3-D printer that works just like a regular pen — a pen that can draw 3-D objects. unlike other 3-D printers, the 3Doodler is price-point friendly at $75. Quite simple, but pretty brilliant, the 3Doodler is sort of like a hot glue gun with the ability to print a fine line of plastic. Available for pre-order with shipment in February. the3doodler.com

$49.95 It’s a high-tech solution to a low-tech problem: Justick is the next generation’s bulletin, display and white board that will simplify work with electrostatic force. No pins, glue, magnets or tape required; just pop in some AA batteries and the electricity flowing through the surface attracts all kinds of paper, CDs and other objects. justick.com

$599 While everyone’s talking about Google Glass electronic eyewear, a less-expensive alternative exists. The Recon Jet, a heads-up display specifically designed for athletes, puts the display lens at the lower part of the wearer’s vision rather than the top. The Jet features smartphone pairing with iphone and Android plus GpS, accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, thermometer, altimeter and barometer for a ton of information that can also be paired with wireless sensors to monitor heart rate and cadence.

(BPT) - Guys can be the hardest people to shop for, and finding the perfect gift has become a daunting holiday tradition. Sure, they will appreciate the thought behind another bundle of tube socks - and might even wear them - but there are gifts that bring a wow factor and make even the most stoic guys light up like a little kid.

Give tools for do-it-yourself projects You may not know every project the DIYer in your life is working on, so choose a multi-purpose tool. Tools like the Klutch Cordless Impact Wrench from Northern Tool + Equipment are the perfect partner for all those auto, construction or equipment maintenance projects. This 24-volt, cordless wrench delivers heavy torque and includes four different sockets assuring he has the right piece for any job. Fill his garage or man cave Every guy has a little space in the home he likes to call his own. For some it’s the garage, for others it’s the man cave in the house, and for others maybe the garage is his man cave. Wherever he chooses to relax, he might enjoy a personalized beer pitcher or an under-the-counter fridge. His garage will also look great with a new toolbox or shop stool. Find the unexpected Finding a gift he might get from a buddy will be a pleasant surprise for him. The Harley-Davidson 7-Liter Pilsner Glass from Kotula’s will turn heads and create a lot of laughs. This giant beer glass can hold up to about 18 cans of his favorite beer and will make a big statement. If you use these shopping tips for the guys in your life, you won’t even need to check your holiday list twice. With a good plan in mind, you’ll find options he will enjoy and actually use.

Christmas Day has become a big day in the movie business. Many studios now release big-budget films on December 25th, and audiences have recently flocked to the theaters to see some of their favorite stars in films that opened on Christmas Day or shortly before. According to Box Office Mojo, an online movie publication and box office reporting service, no film has fared better on Christmas Day than “Sherlock Holmes,” which premiered on December 25, 2009, earning just under $25 million in its initial day onscreen. “Avatar,” the 2009 James Cameron film that would go on to gross $760 million in domestic receipts alone, holds the distinction of earning the second most money on Christmas Day, when it earned a little more than $23 million despite having already been out in the theaters one full week. The 2004 Ben Stiller film “Meet the Fockers” opened three days before Christmas but still managed to earn $19.5 million on Christmas Day. A pair of 2012 films, the latest big screen adaptation of “Les Miserables” ($18 million) and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” ($15 million), round out the top five highest grossing films on Christmas Day. Numerous films are slated to open on December 25, 2013, including Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” starring Chris Pine and Kevin Costner.

(MS) -- The holidays are a perfect time to indulge in treats and spread the joy of baking with gifts that encourage friends and family to discover their inner baker. This season, there’s more to choose from in the baking category with the launch of Cake Boss, an extensive line of more than 200 “Buddy approved” baking items designed in collaboration with Buddy Valastro, the star of TLC’s hit reality show, “Cake Boss.” Offered by Meyer Corporation, U.S. in partnership with Discovery Communications, Cake Boss covers all the bases for baking, decorating, serving, and storing cakes and other desserts like a pro. Here’s a “baker’s dozen” list of gift ideas and creative ways to be sweet on anyone who’s been extra good this year. Gifts For the Artistic Baker: For avid bakers who enjoy expressing their creativity through baking, a gift of a Cake Boss Cake Kit ($29.99) includes everything needed to bake like the pros. Ideal for the holiday season, the Cake Boss Winter Cake Kit includes five stainless steel cutters (two holiday bulbs, a small circle, one tree and one reindeer), and five plastic plunge cutters (two holly leaves and three snowflakes) to create fun shapes in rolled fondant. A ribbon cutter helps cut fluted or straight decorative strips in fondant or gum paste, and stainless steel decorating tips in star and round shapes (combined with the kit’s disposable plastic piping bags) make it easy as pie to pipe borders and create icing designs. An instructional booklet is included to guide bakers each step of the way. For Serious Cooks and Bakers: Professional quality bakeware does double duty for baking up delicious, savory recipes, as well as sweets. The Cake Boss Professional 13x18-inch Jelly Roll Pan ($17.99) holds up to the rigors of frequent use with heavy-duty aluminized steel, commercial-style folded construction, and reinforced wire rims. Ideal for baking flaky pastry appetizers, as well as roasts of all kinds, the Cake Boss Professional Jelly Roll Pan distributes heat fast and evenly, and won’t warp or bend. A unique quilted, light-colored nonstick surface promotes even airflow for pro-style results. Family Friendly Gifts: Buying individual presents for each member of a family with children of different ages can end up being costly and time consuming. A family group gift is a practical solution that also can encourage spending time together. One idea is to put together a “Cookie and a Movie Night” gift package with a few innovative tools for baking cookies, your own favorite cookie recipe, a decadent hot chocolate mix, and a DVD for a classic family-friendly movie. For the cookie baking tools, the Cake Boss Linzer Cutters 6-Piece Set ($16.99) in “Classic” and “Holiday” styles make it fun to customize these scrumptious sandwich cookies. The Cake Boss Beechwood Rolling Pin ($29.99) has just the right weight and size to roll out cookie dough with ease, and a wide assortment of Cake Boss Cookie & Fondant Cutters ($16.99) in fun shapes like Stars, Hearts, Daisies, Round and Square provide multiple ways to make cookies in varying sizes. Cookies To-Go: Cookie exchange parties are a great way to get in the holiday spirit and sample some new recipes. Surprise the host by pairing your cookies with a gift of the Cake Boss Deluxe 10x15-inch Covered Cookie Pan ($16.99). Bake the cookies and transport them right in this innovatively designed pan. Helpful drop zones stamped on the surface ensure uniform-

ly sized cookies. Long-lasting nonstick on both the interior and exterior surfaces prevent cookies from sticking and speeds up cleaning time. Finally, wide handles with red silicone grips in fun rolling pin shapes, and a translucent, tight-locking cover, make this cookie pan perfect for transporting baked treats to and from get-togethers. Teacher Treats: If you have school age children, don’t forget a special treat for their teachers. Sculpted in glossy ceramic to resemble a bow-wrapped gift, the colorful pink and brown Cake Boss “Present” Cookie Jar and the seasonally themed red and green Cake Boss “Holiday” Cookie Jar ($39.99 each) are sure to impress, especially when you include home-baked cookies inside. Print your recipe on a pretty card and add to the cookie jar to be sure it never goes empty! Two-for-One Hostess Gifts: Be extra sweet to your holiday party host with a dual gift of both a dessert and the Cake Boss Cake Carrier ($39.99) used to handily transport it. Offered in four retro-inspired styles, each durable and easy-to-clean Cake Boss Cake Carrier is spacious enough to hold a standard 9-inch two-layer round cake, cheesecake, pie, or other treat. The lid latches tightly on both sides of the base to protect delicious treats while they’re in transit and keep tempted fingers away! For The “Cake Boss” Wannabe: It’s fast and easy to bake intricate looking cakes like “the Boss” with the Cake Boss 6-Cup Cakelette Pan ($16.99). Available in five different molded designs -- Star, Heart, Groovy Girl, Circle and Square -- each Cake Boss Cakelette Pan makes six individual portion, tiered mini cakes that look like they came straight out of Carlo’s Bakery. In addition to gifting, you can use the assorted pan designs to host a mini cake-decorating holiday party. Guests can decorate their own “cakelette” with icings, sprinkles, colored sugars, and even fondant. Stocking Stuffers and More Under $15: Affordable prep tools are great additions to a baking enthusiast’s stocking stuffer. They also work well as grab bag gifts and extra special toppers to ribbon wrapped presents. The set of two Cake Boss Nylon Bowl Scrapers ($8.99), crafted in durable nylon edged with flexible silicone, ensure that every last bit of batter, buttercream, and sauce gets scraped out of bowls. The heat-resistant Cake Boss Scraping Spatula with Measurement Marks ($11.99) features a durable red silicone tool head with a convenient reference chart of measure equivalents for cups, ounces, tablespoons, teaspoons and milliliters. For more whimsy in the kitchen, the Cake Boss “My Kitchen My Rules” Spoonula ($9.99) with flexible red silicone head for mixing, stirring, and spooning, includes one of Buddy’s favorite catchphrases imprinted on it. Gifts For The Unexpected: It’s a smart idea to keep a few prewrapped gifts on hand when you need a last minute token for a neighbor, friend or host. For example, pair the Cake Boss 4-Piece Measuring Spoons Set ($6.99) with a boxed gourmet mix for scones, and a small bottle of quality vanilla extract. Wrap everything in cellophane with a colorful bow for the perfect last-minute gift.

is geared entirely toward kids. The nabi comes in several different incarnations (nabi Jr., nabi 2 and nabi XD) depending on the age of the child and the desired features. In July of 2013, Fushu, Inc., creator of the nabi tablet, was received the “Best Tablet 2013: For Kids” award from Laptop magazine for its nabi 2 device. * The Amazon Kindle Fire is quickly becoming a go-to option for parents interested in acclimating their children to a tablet. Less than half of the price of its biggest competitor, the Kindle Fire still allows kids to access a bevy of features. Music, movies and Amazon’s ever-growing trove of e-books are just some of the features that make the Kindle Fire a popular choice. * Though small, the iPad mini has all of the features of a larger iPad but in a more kid-friendly size. Many parents prefer the iPad mini for their children because they have Apple products and appreciate being able to share with their kids apps and information among all of the devices. Determining if a child is ready for a tablet is a difficult decision for parents, who must assess how well the child handles responsibility, toys and electronics in the home. Adults may opt for a more durable, less expensive tablet as an introduction to tablets for children and then gravitate toward more “adult” options as their children prove they can be responsible with the device.

on the device. But a growing number of child-friendly tablets have entered the market, and such devices are designed to be more durable for children who have a tendency to drop and destroy things. Those on the fence about whether or not to purchase a tablet for a child can consider these options. * The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids is a tablet that comes with a selection of educational functions, games and e-books. The device allows parents to decide which apps can be accessed on the device and restrict use to certain periods of time. The Galaxy Tab 3 Kids boasts a seven-inch screen and will run Android 4.1 or Jelly Bean. The front and rear facing cameras are considerably lower in quality than Samsung’s previous products, down to 3-megapixels and 1.3-megapixels, respectively. * The VTech InnoTab tailors apps to children in a compact device. The screen is just five inches in size, and the tablet comes packed with interactive e-books, learning games and other creative tools. It also has a modest price tag for a child’s first foray into the world of tablets. * The LeapFrog Leappad Ultra is a kid’s learning tablet designed for children between the ages of four and nine. It comes with a seven-inch screen, Wi-Fi with kid-safe Web access and the ability to connect to a library of more than 800 educator-approved apps, books and more. * The nabi is an Android tablet that

Tablets are poised to grow more popular in the years to come, and many children are anxious to get their very own tablet. But many parents wonder if their kids are ready for a tablet and if such devices would make good gifts for their youngsters this holiday season. According to a 2012 report from Pew Research, 22 percent of American adults now own some type of tablet, while In-Stat research estimates 65 percent of Americans, or more than 200 million people, will have a smartphone and/or tablet by 2015. According to a Fall 2012 report by the Media Technology Monitor, an estimated 26 percent of the Canadian population has a tablet, more than twice the amount of tablet owners just a year earlier. As tablets become the device of choice, many different manufacturers have entered the tablet market, and children have begun to ask for tablets for holiday gifts, leaving parents wondering if their children are responsible enough to own a tablet that may cost several hundreds of dollars. Price-wary parents should realize that tablet prices vary greatly depending

* Local merchants tend to be more knowledgeable about their products. Large chain stores might have many employees working on the floor or behind the registers, but those employees are not always experts on the products being sold throughout the store. Local merchants tend to have less inventory and fewer employees, who often know a great deal about the products on the shelves. Some employees might even have developed the products being sold, and that knowledge can be put to use when uncertain shoppers are looking for the perfect gift for their loved ones. * Local merchants are more accessible. Arguably the biggest benefit of shopping locally for gifts is the proximity to home. Consumers who buy products from merchants within their community won’t have to travel far to do their shopping, nor will they need to gas up the car if the item needs to be returned or exchanged. Some local merchants may even be within walking distance of home, making a shopping trip even more accessible. Consumers often find shopping local when buying gifts for family and friends is a great way to obtain more satisfying and reliable customer service.

T

he average adult must shop for gifts for friends or family members several times over the course of a typical year. Birthdays, holidays and anniversaries are often the driving force behind such excursions, but some people will buy a gift for a loved one even if there is no special occasion attached. When buying gifts for those we love, many consumers hope to find something unique. But unique items can be hard to find at the local shopping mall, where national chain stores tend to dominate. That reality highlights just one of the many benefits of shopping locally. * Local merchants tend to have more unique merchandise. A national chain store on one side of the country is not much different from its counterpart on the opposite coast. The stores’ layouts are likely identical and so is their inventory. Unlike such corporate giants, local merchants aren’t mass-producing their items, and chances are the items sold by local merchants are one-of-akind. Such items make for more unique gifts that recipients might find more thoughtful than an item they can find at larger chain stores. * Local merchants often provide more satisfying customer service. Larger chains tend to rely on automated systems to handle many of their customer service calls. Some consumers may never even speak to a real person when they call a customer service line, while others may first have to answer several automated questions before finally being connected to a real person. Local merchants tend to handle their own customer service, and consumers who have a concern or question about a product often speak directly with the store’s owner. That sense of direct connection gives consumers some peace of mind and can make them more comfortable when making their purchases.

Great gifts for music fans usic remains an art form that evokes strong emotions and holds a special place in many a listener's heart. The nearly universal appeal of music makes it a great gift come the holiday season, when shoppers may not always know what to buy a loved one. The following are a few gift ideas that are sure to have your favorite music fan singing your praises this holiday season. * Concert tickets: Perhaps no gift makes music fans' hearts race more than tickets to see their favorite musicians perform. Your loved one probably has a favorite artist or someone he or she has long desired to see live. Look into that performer's tour dates to see if they are playing your area anytime soon. If they're playing just before the holiday season, don't hesitate to give this gift a little early. The same approach should be taken if an artist will be in town within a day or two of Christmas or Chanukah. Giving the tickets early enables your loved one the chance to clear his or her schedule. * Musical instrument: It's never too early or too late to learn how to play a new instrument. Shoppers whose loved ones love a good rock-and-roll riff might find guitars make a great holiday gift, while those who can't stop playing air drums should enjoy finding a real drum set come the holidays. When buying guitars, shoppers should learn which hand their loved ones favor.

M

* Music lessons: Lessons are the next logical step once a music fan has the instruments to work with. But even those without an instrument of their own can benefit from music lessons. For example, music lovers who want to learn piano can make use of lessons even if they don't have their own pianos at home. Lessons can be a great way for music lovers to gauge their skill levels before buying an expensive instrument. In addition, lessons can turn music lovers on to new instruments or new types of music they may never have considered previously. * Sound system: Advancements in technology have proven to be music to music lovers' ears. Music fans can now take advantage of crisp sound systems that make music that much more enjoyable. Sound systems come in many shapes and sizes, and they can vary significantly in regard to price. When purchasing a sound system as a holiday gift, look for one that's compatible with your loved one's existing components, such as a television or music player. * Streaming service membership: Unlike the days when music fans had to wait for local deejays to play their favorite songs on the radio, today's music fans can essentially create their own radio stations on their computers and even on their phones. Shoppers can buy their favorite music fans subscriptions to streaming services, such as Pandora or Spotify, and listeners can then tailor their own stations to include their favorite genres, artists or individual songs.

Staying home for the holidays can save families a significant amount of time during this busy time of year.

Finding time during the holiday season erhaps no time of year is as busy as the holiday season, when social engagements and holiday shopping combine to dominate so much of what is normally our free time. Additionally, holiday travel and late nights spent at work to make up for lost time also cut into our free time, leaving many people in search of ways to add more hours to the day. Though there’s no way to make a day last longer, there are ways to save some time this holiday season. * Go it alone. Holiday shopping can be very time consuming, but shoppers who decide to shop alone may find themselves more productive and focused on the task at hand. Rather than going from store to store and checking items off multiple shopping lists, shoppers who shop singularly can devote all of their attention to their own lists. * Shop online. Another way to save time when shopping for the holidays is to shop online. This saves you the time it takes to drive to and from the mall and walk around multiple stores, all the while saving you from the often frustrating and time-consuming experience of finding a parking space. In addition, you can shop online at any time of day. So rather than just eating lunch at your desk on your lunch hour or spending the last hour before you go to bed for the night idling away on the couch, you can make more efficient use of that time by doing some holiday shopping. * Plan ahead. Whether shopping for holiday gifts, taking the family to buy a Christmas tree or organizing a holiday dinner with friends, the more you can plan ahead of the holiday season the less time you will waste once the season hits full swing. For example, when choosing a weekend

P

to go Christmas tree shopping, inform others a few weeks in advance and let them know you want to go early to avoid crowds. This saves you time and might just help you land one of the best trees on the lot. The same principle of planning can be applied to other aspects of the holiday season as well. Planning a meal early allows you to gradually stock up on menu items, saving you the hassle of rushing to the store at the last minute or planning a menu in the days before the party when you will already have enough on your plate. * Don’t shy away from shortcuts when hosting holiday dinners. Hosting a holiday dinner is a big undertaking, one that often finds hosts spending a significant amount of time in the kitchen. But hosts can save time by taking some shortcuts regarding the menu. For instance, when hosting an especially large meal, don’t be afraid to buy some premade side dishes from a local grocery store or buy a bakery cake rather than whipping up your own homemade dessert. Guests will understand if you cut some corners in an effort to save some time, and the food will likely be just as delicious. * Stay home. Travel is a big commitment come the holiday season, but what about staying home this season? If the time commitment of traveling is something you truly want to avoid this year, invite some friends and family over to your home instead. You might be more busy on the day of the holiday, but you will save yourself the travel days you usually build into the holiday season. Parents of young children might prefer to stay home so they can create their own unique holiday memories, while those without children might just appreciate some peace and quiet during this hectic time of year.

On tHe mOrning Of dec. 7, 1941, Japanese planes cruised across the Paciic Ocean and attacked the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The U.S. had been blocking Japan’s ability to trade across the Paciic, and the Japanese, who were at war with China, were looking to gain a stronger foothold there. By attacking the U.S. leet of ships, the Japanese hoped that they would have control of the Paciic. On the morning of the attack, Japanese ighter jets dropped bombs and battered the entire base, killing 2,500 people and injuring 1,000. This surprise attack destroyed the U.S. naval leet, including eight battleships and 200 airplanes, and sent the nation into shock. President Franklin D. Roosevelt addressed the American people the following day, Dec. 8, telling them that “the United States of America

was suddenly and deliberately attacked.” America was launched into World War II, one of the largest and bloodiest wars of the 20th century, and ighting stretched from Europe to the Paciic. The world didn’t emerge from that war until 1945.

Cowboys, Bears going in opposite directions Hub Arkush

The Dallas Cowboys will come calling Monday Night at Soldier Field in front of a national TV audience, traveling a course that could be the exact opposite of where the Bears are heading. After jumping out to a 3-0 and 4-2 start to the season, the Bears have lost four of their last six, including division games to the Lions and Vikings. The Cowboys, on the other hand, come in at 7-5 and winners of five of their last seven, including division wins over the Giants, Eagles and Redskins. While the Bears are running away from the playoffs, the Cowboys just might be running into them. Dallas has struggled to run the ball all season, ranking just 27th in rushing, but they are 15th in the league in

passing. Tony Romo is second in the league in avoiding interceptions, and the Cowboys are eighth protecting the passer and fourth in scoring, just ahead of the sixth-place Bears. On defense, the Cowboys have been awful, dead last in the league in yards allowed, 27th vs. the run, 31st vs. the pass and 22nd in points allowed. Statistically, the Cowboys and Bears have a lot in common. They also have a lot in common on the defensive line, where each has one of the best players in the game – DeMarcus Ware for the Cowboys and Julius Peppers with the Bears. Beyond those two, both clubs have been devastated by injuries. Dallas has had 19 different players get reps on their defensive line this season. One constant for the Cowboys, though, is Romo, who’s taken every snap at quarterback this season and is again playing at a very high level. Romo has completed 64.8 percent of his 440 attempts for 3,140 yards, 24 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.

herma Tru Doors

His passer rating of 97.3 is eighth in the NFL, oddly right behind Josh McCown, who is seventh at 103.6. As luck would have it and as badly as the Bears’ run defense needs a break, the Cowboys are coming off their best rushing game of the season, racking up 144 yards on 30 carries Thanksgiving Day against the Raiders. DeMarco Murray is the bellcow and, in addition to 63 yards on 17 carries against the Raiders, he notched three touchdowns on the ground. The Cowboys really only have two receivers who scare you, but Jason Witten is a future Hall of Famer at tight end, and at 6-2 and 222 pounds, Dez Bryant is one of the only receivers in the league who can match Brandon Marshall’s production. Since the beginning of 2011, Bryant has caught 223 passes for 3,206 yards and 30 touchdowns. Dallas’ offensive line is average at best, but left tackle Tyron Smith is athletic enough to battle Julius Peppers. Former Northern Illinois Huskie Doug Free, at right tackle, could be too much

for Shea McClellin. In addition to their struggle to keep defensive linemen healthy, the Cowboys also have been without their second best defensive player, middle linebacker Sean Lee, who’s been out the past three weeks with a hamstring injury. But he plans on returning versus the Bears. Brandon Carr has been a solid free agency acquisition at one cornerback spot, but Morris Claiborne, who Dallas traded up to draft in the first round last year, is suffering a bit of sophomore slump. Dallas also has really struggled at safety, where J.J. Wilcox and Barry Church are the starters. Dallas’ special teams are among the league’s best in all categories and most of their special teamers were coached until this year by Bears Special Teams Coach and Assistant Head Coach, Joe Decamillis. This game has all the makings of a shootout, much like the Cowboys’ 31-30 loss to Detroit five weeks ago, and it’s one the Bears have to have to retain any hope of a trip to the playoffs.

Kickers and defenses have become an afterthought in fantasy football. There’s good reason for this: Because of most scoring systems, a solid output from your kicker or defense – say, 11 points – would be a disappointment from your starting running back or front-line receiver. Still, having the right kicker and defense can be the difference between a fantasy championship and an early round playoff exit. There’s a certain editor of a certain media company (rhymes with “claw”) who can tell you all about the importance of a fantasy defense. We squared off in 2006 with our league’s championship on the line. Headed into the night game, he held a 30-point advantage. With nothing

dling teams – the Packers (Mason Crosby) and Ravens (Justin Tucker). Denver, the league’s highest-scoring team, has the league’s fifth-highest scoring kicker in Matt Prater. The high-flying Saints have the No. 11 kicker in Garrett Hartley. The same challenge exists in selecting a fantasy defense. The best defenses aren’t always the best defenses in fantasy. For much of the season, Houston had one of the NFL’s top-ranked defenses, but it ranked dead last in terms of fantasy production. The Cowboys have one of the

league’s worst defenses – they are ranked No. 31 against the pass – but they are No. 7 in fantasy points. Are there defenses or kickers on your league’s waiver wire that can help deliver a championship to your team? Let’s start with kickers. Blair Walsh, Garrett Hartley and Caleb Sturgis are likely available, but all three face a brutal schedule in the upcoming weeks. Stay away. Adam Vinatieri has lit it up two of the last three weeks. He may not be available, but even if he is, the Colts are at Cincinnati this week and at Kansas City in three weeks. He does have a nice matchup at home against Houston sandwiched in between. Three likely available kickers have ideal upcoming matchups. Dan Carpenter of Buffalo is at Tampa, at Jacksonville and home against Miami. The Chiefs’ Ryan Succop

is at Washington, at Oakland and home versus Indianapolis. Nick Novak of San Diego is at home versus the Giants, travels to Denver and is at home against the Raiders in week 16. It might be a bit tougher to find an available defense. Arizona is available in 56 percent of ESPN leagues. They have St. Louis at home, travel to Tennessee and then travel to Seattle. The first two games look like nice matchups, but you can’t rely on them in Week 16 in Seattle. The Cowboys are available in 73 percent of ESPN leagues and have some intriguing matchups. They face the Bears on Monday night. In Week 15, they have the Packers at home. It’s a great matchup for them if Aaron Rodgers does not play. In Week 16, they face another struggling team when they travel to Washington.

but my defense remaining, the game was all but over. That evening, Rex Grossman delivered several balls to the Green Bay defense … thus delivering a championship to yours truly. For the most part, picking the right defense and/or kicker is a crapshoot. Some owners use the strategy of playing week-to-week matchups, picking their defense and/or kicker from the waiver wire. The problem with this strategy – especially as it relates to your defense – is that you are continually selecting the best of the worst. The conundrum with selecting a kicker is that the highest-scoring offenses don’t always produce the best fantasy kickers. The top-scoring fantasy kickers are Stephen Gostkowski (Patriots) and Steven Hauschka (Seahawks). OK, that makes sense, but Nos. 3 and 4 are from mid-

Lisle’s Leah Reeves chases down a loose ball in the Lions’ game against Riverside Brookfield Nov. 27. The Lions lost the game but went 4-1 and took second at RB’s Thanksgiving tournament.

LISLE – Lisle’s girls basketball team is off to a roaring start. Inflicting a suffocating zone defense upon opponents, the Lions took second at the Riverside Brookfield Thanksgiving tournament, winning four out of five games played over the holiday weekend. Lisle also posted an impressive 47-12 victory over Luther North to open the season on Nov. 19, then won its first Interstate Eight Conference game against Sandwich 52-36 on Monday. The jam-packed schedule has not deterred the girls’ play, according to first-year head coach Nick Balaban, as the Lions won six games in 14 days and are again a contender I-8 conference with an overall record of 6-1 and 1-0 in the league. “Our schedule has given us a chance to get a lot of games – and various game situations – under our belt,” Balaban said. “It’s given our core a chance to step up, work together and respond to a different in-game scenarios. “The RB Thanksgiving tournament was a good benchmark for us. We knew that if we played well there, if was a good indication that we can play with anybody.” Balaban insists that a key to the Lions hot start is their defensive dominance. So far, Lisle’s zone and trapping scheme has held five of seven opponents to 40 or less points. “We have set the tone defensively,” Balaban said. “Our zone defense causes a lot of problems for opposing teams, and we have rebounded very well. Our goal is to always play strong defense – that’s who we are.” Sarah Mogensen leads the team with 9.6 rebounds per game while Sierra Birdsell is

“Our schedule has given us a chance to get a lot of games – and various game situations – under our belt. It’s given our core a chance to step up, work together and respond to a different in-game scenarios.” Nick Balaban Lisle head coach averaging six rebounds and two steals per game. The two have paced the Lions on offense as well. Birdsell is averaging 11.4 points per game and Mogensen is averaging 10 points per game. Junior forward Monifah Davis has chipped in 5.8 points per game. Lisle was scheduled to play at Wheaton Academy yesterday and will remain on the road to face Plano in an I-8 game at 6:45 p.m. Thursday. While Balaban has only positive things to say about his teams’ play during the grueling schedule, he is looking forward to returning to a regular practice schedule. “I think the team’s intensity, adrenaline and enthusiasm have been amazing,” Balaban said. “It will be nice get back to practice, so we can approach specific situations and fine-tune our play.”

About Westphal

For an encore, Westphal notched 35 tackles, eight pass break-ups, three interceptions and two touchdowns during his final season as the Raiders advanced to the second round of the playoffs. Yet he takes the most pride in a stat that went unrecorded – shedding blockers. This past offseason, Westphal focused on improving his technique when engaged by an opposing receivers. His diligence paid dividends on the field, as he continually shed blocks and put himself in posi-

tion to make tackles. “Hard work always pays off,” Westphal said. “The day after the season ends, I’m always back in the weight room or watching film. I think it was evident this season – if you look back at the tape, receivers always had a hard time blocking me.” Collegiate scouts also took notice, as more than 15 schools have made scholarship offers. Although Westphal has yet to announce where he will play college football, he says that

the pool has been narrowed to Northwestern, Michigan State and Vanderbilt. The lifelong Bolingbrook resident attests that leaving his home will be a bittersweet moment. “I’m really looking forward to playing football at the next level,” Westphal said. “But, it’s going to be hard to not play in front of a Bolingbrook crowd. The people are so amazing and I’m so close to so many of my teammates, they are like my second family.”

Renovate for efficiency More than 90 percent of the 116 million homes in the United States are expected to have higher heating expenditures this winter compared with last winter, mainly because of changes in energy prices, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Here are some tips for making your home run more efficiently: Change your furnace filter: A dirty filter can restrict airflow and increase energy use in your home. Keeping your furnace clean, updated and properly adjusted can save about 5 percent on heating costs. Replace old windows: Ten to 25 percent of your heating bill each month can often be attributed to heat lost through your home’s windows, according to energy.gov. Replace old windows with more energyefficient ones so your heating system doesn’t have to work as hard to manage your home’s desired temperature. Look for energy efficiency: Choosing Energy Star products, which incorporate technologies that use 10 to 15 percent less energy and water than standard models, could save nearly $900 over the lifetime of the products.

Seal it up Reduce air leaks and stop drafts by using caulk, weather stripping and insulation to seal your home’s envelope, and add more insulation to your attic to block out heat and cold. A knowledgeable homeowner or skilled contractor can save up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs and significantly enhance home comfort with sealing and insulating measures, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

The most eye-catching piece in this master bedroom makeover is a unique ethanol fireplace encased in a white dresser that is opposite the foot of the bed. SHnS PHOTO

Makeover heats up Fireplace is focal point of master bedroom By Candice Olson Scripps Howard news Service

S

ue and Shouvik are a busy young couple with full-time jobs, a 2-yearold son, and a newborn baby. Life is hectic, and these two need a place to escape the daily hustle and bustle. But, although their master bedroom is huge, they struggle with trying to lay out their furniture in this oddly shaped room. Sue is a shopaholic and Shouvik is a hoarder, so the walk-in closet is bursting at the seams with clothing, shoes and accessories. To compensate, they’ve added various cabinets throughout the space to address the lack of storage. They’re desperate for a design that is functional yet luxurious, pulling together all of the room’s elements into one designer look. At the end of the day, Sue and Shouvik are looking for an adult retreat that is reminiscent of a boutique hotel suite. To begin, we upgraded their queen bed to a king-size bed, perfect for family time on Sunday mornings. We repositioned the bed to another wall, and flanked it with

mirrored panels lit up by modern wall sconces. A custom-made headboard covered with a rich, silvery patterned fabric contrasts sharply with the far wall, which was painted black and draped in dark, wall-to-wall sheers. The ebony fabric makes the wall recede, and a three-piece triptych photo of the Brooklyn Bridge at night is attached to hidden brackets, making it appear to “float” against the gauzy backdrop. The most eye-catching piece in this master bedroom makeover is a unique ethanol fireplace, encased in a white dresser that is opposite the foot of the bed. The cleanburning ethanol flames add romance and warmth to this bedroom retreat, with the added bonus of more attached storage. Part of the problem with Sue and Shouvik’s old bedroom was a lack of storage. To fix this, I decided to create an open concept dressing room with an island to hold jewelry, socks, ties and laundry hampers. The custom marble-topped island is the hardest-working piece in this bedroom, with not only gorgeous form but tons of function, too. Additional wardrobe storage is found

around the island, with all cabinet handles and hardware boasting a tiny bit of bling for added elegance. In front of the bay window, we improved the existing window seat with a new custom bench seat cushion, and accessorized it with pillows that picked up our color scheme: ebony, white and gray. An elegant chandelier hangs above the island, with table lamps providing additional illumination. All in all, Sue and Shouvik’s new master bedroom is all that they hoped for: an elegant retreat with the vibe of a boutique hotel and the functionality of providing a place for everything. The busy young couple now has an adult space to call their own, which is going to become increasingly important as their kids grow up and demand much of their attention. Here, in this elegant and romantic space, it’s all about the two of them.
