Lemont-Bromberek Combined School District 113A Board President Cindy Kelly (left) welcomes Pamela Hollich as the interim superintendent during the Wednesday board meeting.

LEMONT – The District 113A Board of Education also approved a tentative property tax levy for 2013 during its Wednesday meeting. The estimated total property taxes to be levied in 2013 is $24,542,587, an 8.09 percent increase from last year, according to district Business Manager Barbara Germany. That amount includes

perintendent position. Hollich said she was looking to get back to work in education and the district is close to her home in Frankfort. “I retired and I realized time was heavy on my hands,” she said. The board also set up a

$19,574,000 in corporate and special purposes property taxes and $4,968,587 in taxes levied for debt service and public building commission leases. Because the increase is more than 5 percent, the district is required by state statute to hold a public hearing, which will take place during the Dec. 17 board meeting.

She left the district to take a position as the treasurer for the Lyons Township Trustees of Schools. The search is familiar for some of the board members. They conducted a similar process to find Birkenmaier after the resignation of superintendent Tim Ricker in fall 2011. Board members commented during the meeting that the timeline of the search will be similar to the previous one, which they said gave them enough time to find a good candidate for the district.

Lemont hosts film crew shooting horror picture By DAN FARNHAM dfarnham@shawmedia.com LEMONT – Lemont and its residents are playing a supporting role in an upcoming feature-length horror film called “Anguish.” Sonny Mallhi chose Lemont, Willow Springs and his native Downers Grove as shooting locations for his directorial debut. Mallhi said he chose to film in Lemont because it has a unique look among the Chicago suburbs and is one of the only places in the area with a

multitude of hills. “It’s always one of the more scenic places around,” he said. “It’s really picturesque but also industrial.” The Lemont Historical Society Museum has received the most attention. The film crew spent Halloween filming a scene in the chapel. Museum coordinator Sue Donahue, who was present during the filming, said extras were seated in pews during the scene. She said the film crew thanked her for the historical society’s hospitality by giving her a small cameo.

“[The Chicago suburbs is] always one of the more scenic places around. It’s really picturesque but also industrial.” Sonny Mallhi “Anguish” horror film director She also made in a cameo in the film “Children on their Birthdays” when it was shot at the museum, she said.

Donahue said friends have been teasing her about how she is a movie star now. “I said, ‘You are absolutely right. I will have to end up hiring bodyguards.’” Lemont Mayor Brian Reaves said he is honored when people film movies in Lemont, considering the size of the town. “That’s one of the characteristics that sets [Lemont] apart from so many communities, because of the age of the town, the uniqueness of the topography and the oldness of the buildings we have,” he said.

Lemont in film This is not the first time Lemont has been used as a filming location. Other films include “The Lake House,” “Witless Protection,” “Children on Their Birthdays,” “Straight Talk” and “The Hunter.” R. Kelly also shot his music video for his song “Rock Star” at the Carousel.

LEMONT – The Lemont-Bromberek Combined School District 113A Board of Education approved Pamela Hollich as its interim superintendent during a special meeting Wednesday. A permanent superintendent is expected to be named by July 1. The board approved the appointment with six “yes” votes.

EPA looking into Citgo Refinery fire in Lemont SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA LEMONT – In response to the Oct. 23 fire at Citgo’s Lemont Refinery, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency has asked the Illinois Attorney General’s Office to file a court order telling Citgo to submit a root cause analysis and other information for state review, according to an Illinois EPA news release. According to the release, the fire was caused by a valve malfunction when Citgo employees or contractors were dismantling piping associated with the refinery’s crude unit for maintenance purposes. The Illinois EPA is seeking information on air monitoring data collected during the incident, the amount of crude and air emissions released, the clean-up plan and a record

of communication with local officials and citizens during the incident. A spokesperson with the Illinois Attorney General’s Office said the office is currently reviewing the request and is hoping to make a decision soon because of the seriousness of the incident. Citgo officials said they have voluntarily provided all information the Illinois EPA has requested and are keeping local officials informed about the steps being taken to address the incident, according to a Citgo news release. The release also said that Citgo has determined that the fire had no impact on the environment and there is no current risk of endangerment to human health or the environment as a result of the incident.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Budget cuts force Argonne to reduce staff By DAN FARNHAM dfarnham@shawmedia.com LEMONT – Due to an anticipated budget reduction for the next two years, Argonne National Laboratory is offering voluntary buyouts for employees, according to a news release from the laboratory. “Despite ongoing efforts to contain costs and limit spending, our budget constraints make it necessary for us to

reduce our workforce,” the release said. Argonne hopes to reduce 120 of its 3,400 positions by Nov. 15 through what it calls a labwide voluntary separation program, according to the release. “We hope that this program will enable Argonne to meet our reduced budgets over the near term while protecting our ability to deliver groundbreaking science,” the release said. Officials with Argonne

would not speculate about what they would do if not enough employees took the buyout. Wes Prucnal, president of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local 742, said the reduction of budget and staff will delay research projects the laboratory has planned. “It’s hurting us,” he said. “It’s hurting the future of our research.”

Prucnal said it is hard to say what the impact of losing 120 employees will be, but whenever the staff has to train replacements, it is a setback. U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., whose district includes Argonne, expressed his support for the laboratory in a statement. “The reduction in staff is unfortunate and yet another example of the harmful effects of federal sequestration and

the need to develop a long-term strategy for funding science research,” he said in the statement. Prucnal said he is not happy with the U.S. Congress, particularly the Tea Party movement, which he blames for the budget cuts. He said local congressmen may see the repercussions during the next election. “Come 2014, we’re going to remember this,” he said.

Lemont High School makes AYP, sees progress in test scores By DAN FARNHAM dfarnham@shawmedia.com LEMONT – Lemont High School District 210 made Adequate Yearly Progress in all areas, though the district is more excited by the progress the test scores show. The basic requirement for schools to make AYP is

for 92.5 percent of students to meet or exceed standards on the Prairie State Achievement Exam. However, schools can also reach the benchmark by meeting the Safe Harbor Targets. Safe Harbor Targets only apply to subgroups of 45 students or more. The number

of students not reaching AYP standards within the subgroup must decrease by 10 percent compared to the previous year. According to the State Report Card, Lemont High School’s only qualified subgroup is white students. District 210 spokesman Tony Hamilton said the

district prefers to focus on whether students are showing improvement, rather than its AYP status. “I think the most important thing is that we’ve shown progress from one year to the next,” he said. According to a district news release, 72.5 percent of the class of 2014 students

who took the PSAE met or exceeded standards. This is the second highest percentage of students to reach standards since the school implemented the exam. The percentage of students meeting or exceeding standards in science was the

A better leader? Figures, now that Obama is coincidentally tying the virtues of his big signature achievement healthcare fiasco along the lines of Romney’s successful Massachusetts plan, in which Romney and Kennedy worked across the aisle to get it done in that state with bipartisanship support.

A memorial is something that should be done within a year of the end of the person’s life, and then that’s that.

Former D-113A superintendent begins new job Birkenmaier started new job five days before officially leaving position with school district SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA LEMONT – While former Lemont-Bromberek Combined School District 113A Superintendent Susan Birkenmaier’s last day work-

• SOUND OFF Continued from page 9 Stuck with CFLs Estimates of mercury contamination in albacore tuna suggest a level of 0.353 parts per million. If the average tuna serving in a sandwich is 6 ounces, it should take around 85 tuna sandwiches to equal the mercury that is in a CFL [light bulb], which averages 5 milligrams. Another point is that we can always choose not to eat a specific food type. But when incandescent bulbs are banned, and assuming that LED bulbs stay outrageously high priced, the average homeowner is stuck with CFL’s and their Mercury content.

More tributes needed Regarding the plastic cup tribute. I think, if you’re going to remember one person, I think [you should also remember] all the young people who have their life cut short, whether it was tragically or by medical reasons. All names should be up there, not just one person. And I know there are others. So, I think everybody wants somebody to be remembered, so these people remembering Kelli also need to remember all the other people, the young people, and put their names up there also.

Cubs fans still waiting The World Series is over and the Boston Red Sox are the world champions. A thought occurred to me though.

Birkenmaier began her position as treasurer at the start of the week. Birkenmaier’s last day in the office was Oct. 25, according to officials with District 113A. She has used vacation days to account for the time between Oct. 28 and 31. D-113A Assistant Superintendent Mary Gricus said the district has no policy regard-

ing how its employees spend vacation days. Birkenmaier, who Gricus said determined her own effective resignation date, also was not required to tell the district when she was starting her new job. “When someone resigns, they have no obligation to let us know anything about their next steps,” Gricus said.

For Lemont family, helping the troops is a family affair By DAN FARNHAM

Get involved

dfarnham@shawmedia.com LEMONT – Jan Aiello says her family is always trying to give back to those in need. The Lemont resident hosted a gathering for family and friends on Sunday to pack basic items to ship to troops overseas. By the end of the day, the family had 75 flat rate boxes and 10 large brown boxes. “One of us cannot do it alone,” Aiello said. “But between our big family and all of our friends and our coworkers, we’ve done it.” This was the second packing event this year for the family. They sent 53 care packages in June. The idea began with Aiello’s niece, Rachel Palmer of Chicago Ridge. Palmer said she was moved when she saw an article about how members of the military lack some basic necessities. “My grandmother always told us, ‘Never complain about something if you’re not going to fix it,’” she said. She found the website anysoldier.com, where active military post requests for items they need. “You realize that each of the men that are the contact aren’t doing it for themselves,” she said. “They’re doing that for the morale of the team.”

Jan Aiello said the best way for people to send care packages to troops is by visiting www.anysolider.com. She said that by using this service, people know their items are going directly to the soldiers.

The family collected and sent packages that contained snack foods, hygiene items and pillow cases, among other things. Palmer said though the items are appreciated, the most important thing to put in the boxes is words of encouragement. “We made sure every package had a card or a letter or one of the kids drew a coloring page,” she said. During the most recent event, Aiello said the family labeled some packages to not be opened until Christmas so the troops have something for the holidays. “It’s very fun to lift their spirits in that way and give them something to look forward to,” she said. Aiello said she hopes more people will be inspired to support the troops overseas. “Regardless of what our stance is on the war, there are people from our country in a foreign land that need basic items,” she said.

Resident immerses self in local history before return to Germany By DAN FARNHAM

About the booklet

dfarnham@shawmedia.com LEMONT – In many ways, Thuy-Van Becker is not a typical volunteer with the Lemont Area Historical Society. Becker, 28, was born and raised in Germany by Vietnamese parents. She moved to Lemont in October of last year when her husband, Sebastian, got a job in the physics department at Argonne National Laboratory. Though they will return to Germany at the end of the year, Thuy-Van has had a large impact during her brief time with the historical society. She said she has done a little bit of everything since she started volunteering last spring. Most recently, she created an interactive workbook for children visiting the museum. Becker has a bachelor’s degree in pedagogics and Catholic theology and a background in teaching. When she moved to the U.S., her job opportunities were limited because she does not have

The Historical Museum of Lemont’s Interactive Workbook for Kids includes activities children can do while at the museum. They can try to find images in the booklet in the museum, compare old toys to modern ones, draw pictures of things at the museum, color church windows and learn activities to do at home. a work permit. She said rather than trying to find work, she decided be a stay-at-home wife and get to know the area. Becker said she initially considered volunteering at one of the many Catholic parishes in Lemont, which she had done in Germany. “But I didn’t do that because I thought ‘You should do something new,’” she said. “’You’re in a new place. You should do something new, like nothing you’ve done before.’” Becker said she went to the museum because she was interested in history and an-

Thuy-Van Becker, who has lived in Lemont for a little more than a year, made an interactive workbook for the Historical Museum of Lemont. tiques. Museum coordinator Sue Donahue said she met Becker when she visited the museum. Donahue mentioned the historical society’s need for volunteers. Since then, Becker has been volunteering at the museum on a regular basis, helping with

basic tasks and larger projects, such as updating the cemetery books, Donahue said. Becker said the idea for the workbook came from thinking of how to get more children to come to the museum. “Why not do a little booklet for them so they have something to take home with them?” she said. She started working on the booklet at the beginning of summer and finished in the middle of September. Creating the booklet offered a chance for Becker to learn about Lemont history. She said she has had an interest in the 1850s ever since watching “Little House on the Prairie” in Germany. Becker said the historical society board told her they needed a booklet for children because everything else they had was for adults. Becker also volunteered with the Lemont United Methodist Church during its Vacation Bible School. Though she is Catholic, she said she was compelled to volunteer there when she met

Pastor Kelly Van, who is also Vietnamese. Becker said the large Polish population in Lemont surprised her and helps her feel more at home because she can get European food. “If you move to the states, you expect to be in an All-American surrounding,” she said. Becker said she is returning to Germany partially because her husband’s project at Argonne is ending, but also because she is pregnant and wants to raise her child near family. She said it feels good to leave the interactive workbook with her name on it to show she accomplished something while she was in Lemont. “It’s not just going to a place where nobody knows you and going back and having to admit ‘I’ve been a total stranger there,’” she said. Donahue is sad to see Becker go. “You get used to seeing someone,” she said. “I understand. She’s going back home. I definitely will miss her.”

Restaurant reviews

Experience 1950s-style dining at 100 South ELMHURST – Even if you can’t tell Hepburn and Tracy from Cagney and Lacey, you’ll almost certainly enjoy a night of dining out at 100 South Chop House and Grill. Thanks to its prominent spot at York Street and Park Avenue in downtown Elmhurst, just about anyone who’s been through town has seen the stylish exterior. The inside is more than a match, with a deliberate 1950s style decor and copious framed images of screen stars from the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. And like a beacon from that era, 100 South offers up a great number of variations on that quintessential American dish: meat and potatoes. To be sure, there are attractive seafood, pasta and chicken selections, all of which would’ve been tempting on any other occasion. But having perused the website ahead of time, and seeing a juicy cut of beef pictured prominently, my dining companion and I each knew what we wanted even before crossing the threshold. The tasty, warm bread with garlic butter, and the two (yes, two; we skipped lunch that day) appetizers of shrimp scampi and bruschetta, though enjoyably enticing, were simply overtures to the symphony that followed – an 8-ounce filet mignon, “Oscar style,” for my dining companion, and a 16-ounce New York strip steak for me. “Oscar style” means topped with crab meat and accompanied by Hollandaise sauce. I managed to weasel my way into a bite of this precious delicacy and was confronted by more flavors than my senses knew what to do with. I was tempted, at that point, to suggest a trade of entrees – not that such a suggestion would’ve been accepted. Moving on to my own dish, I dug in with gusto and found exactly what I wanted: a sizable portion of flavorful beef, cooked exactly to my specifications. Maybe I was iron-deficient that day, because this

In case you’re wondering, I did spot a candid photo of legendary stars Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, while enjoying my meal.

Indians wrap up 27-win season By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com LEMONT – Conference championships and 20-plus win campaigns have become the norm for the Lemont girls volleyball team, and the 2013 season proved to be no different. The Indians wrapped up the fall with a 27-9 mark, which included a 12-1 record in the South Suburban Blue conference (Lemont tied for first place with Thornton Fractional South even though the Indians beat them head-to-head). “These girls played really hard and they improved throughout the season,” Lemont coach Chris Zogata said. “They really did a nice job all season long.” Highlights for the Indians this season included matching 4-1 records at the Wheaton Warrenville South and Rich East Invites, in addition to a share of the conference title. “We improved every single time we played and that’s all I can ask for,” said the coach, whose team lost to Wheaton Warrenville South in Class 4A regional semifinal playoff match. “As long as we are getting better, that’s what I look for.” Lemont must say goodbye to seven seniors, including five that saw significant playing time. Kelly Ferguson, Cara Howell, Katy Klein, Jenna Walaszek, Lanie Coules, Annette Cliff and Tess Moeller have all played their final match in an Indians’ uniform. “This group of seniors have done a really nice job,” Zogata said. “It’s a really great group with great leadership; just great kids who were always working to win and be competitive.”

Lemont girls volleyball Final record: 27-9 South Suburban Blue conference: 12-1

Ferguson, who will continue her career at Austin Peay, was a four-year varsity team member. “We’ve had quite a few Division I players,” the coach said, “but she definitely ranks up there in terms of her overall sense of the game and being a leader.” Despite the graduation losses, the future still looks bright for the Indians. The squad will bring back eight players in 2014 and should receive additional help from underlevel teams that also had a successful fall. Junior Ali Lund was second on the team with 164 kills while sophomore Olivia Whittingham placed third in that category with 145. Junior Haley Sullivan topped Lemont with 280 digs and junior Shae Millinowisch dished out a team-high 315 assists.

8PREP ROUNDUP

Campos books state trip By SCOTT SCHMID sschmid@shawmedia.com

WEST CHICAGO – As a freshman, Taylor Campos came in as Lemont’s seventh runner at the regional. Twelve months later, the Indians’ sophomore is a state qualifier. Campos punched her tick- Taylor et to Saturday’s Campos Class 2A state meet after finishing 19th at Saturday’s Wheaton Academy sectional with a time of 19:22. “Taylor is just an ultra-focused runner who strives to succeed,” Lemont coach Tim Plotke said. “Her improvement this year has been inspiring and it really shows what hard work can do. Last year her PR was 20:18 and this year she has run 18:54.” As a team, the Indians finished in eighth but were just 16 points away from fifth. Gabby Voltarel (26th), Claire Gagen (28th) and Lindsey Mazur (44th) were in the top-50. Bridget Kunkel (59th), Kelly Fritz (63rd) and Cassidy Nyenhuis (73rd) also competed. Campos will run at the state

meet at Detweiller Park in Peoria on Saturday.

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY Competing at the Wheaton Academy sectional Saturday, Lemont senior Lucas Heatherington finished in 64th place with a time of 17:25.4.

GIRLS SWIMMING The Lemont girls swimming team was second at the South Suburban Blue conference meet Nov. 1. Erin Bendle emerged as the conference champion in the 500-yard freestyle, coming in with a time of 5:51.27. Annette Lesnicki placed second in the 100 butterfly (1:01.74), and Bridget Doherty was second in the 100 freestyle (1:01.65). Doherty was third in the 200 freestyle; Sarah Ferriter followed in fourth. Sarah Oprzedek and Anna Ignarski were third and fourth, respectively, in the 50 freestyle, and Sarah Decesare and Ferriter placed third and fourth, respectively, in the 100 backstroke.

Coaches and players from the Lemont Hornets 83-pound Gold team talk after the Hornets’ win over the Wheaton Rams secured a spot in the Bill George Youth Football League Super Bowl.

Lemont Hornets headed to youth league Super Bowl SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA LEMONT – A stellar and memorable season continues for the Lemont Hornets 83-pound Gold team. After navigating the regular season with an undefeated record, the Hornets punched their ticket to the Bill George Youth Football League Super Bowl with a

20-0 win over the Wheaton Rams on Saturday. The Hornets will face the Lyons Township Tigers for the BGYFL title at 11:30 a.m. Sunday at Benedictine University. The win over the Rams was the Hornets’ 10th straight victory, and they have allowed just three scores in those 10 games.

The stingy Hornets’ defense held the Rams to only 26 yards on 26 plays. With a stalwart defense providing a spark, the Hornets have scored 277 points this season. On Saturday, the offense scored three touchdowns and successfully converted two extra point plays, and the special teams played very well.

ALL-AREA SOCCER MVP

Improvement marks Meyer’s final season at Central By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – This offseason, Hinsdale Central forward Christian Meyer concentrated on helping the Red Devils improve their offensive tempo and time of possession. Consider it mission accomplished. After an undefeated regular season, a West Suburban Silver Conference title, and run to the 3A sectionals, it was difficult to find flaws in the play on either offense of defense.

But Meyer – a three-year mainstay on the Red Devils roster – emphasized that, in order to remain focused, the players must critique their play and strive towards improvement. “There is always room for individual and team improvement,” Meyer said. “I thought it was imperative that we improve our attack. The offense and [midfielders] focused on cycling the ball better – playing a pro-style possession game with quick passes.” Under Meyer’s guidance, Hinsdale Central’s offense

frequently throttled the opposition, scoring four or more goals 10 times this season en route to another conference title and sectional appearance. Additionally, the team won the Red Devil Invite and captured the Silver Brick trophy with a Sept. 27 victory over Lyons Township, two preseason goals the team had set for itself. Meyer’s production was a big part of Central’s success. He followed up a 10 goal, 12 assist junior season with 17 goals and 12 helpers, leading the Red Devils in scoring. “This year was a little dif-

ferent because I was not playing with one of my brothers,” Meyer said, referring to his twin brother, Mitchell, who left to play Chicago Fire Academy. “I felt like it was my team and I wanted to prove myself on and off the field,” Meyer said. “Wearing the Hinsdale Central jersey holds special meaning to me. I watched the games when I was young and saw the talent that went through the program. There is nothing better than proudly representing your school and community.”

Hinsdale Central cruised through regionals, but eventually dropped a tight sectional match to rival Lyons Township. While he is still contemplating where he will play collegiate soccer, Meyer hints that he might reunite with his brother, Mitchell, if the twins can get into Cornell University. “I have loved my time here, but I am excited for what lies ahead,” Meyer said. “I would love to play with my brother again. We will just have to see if we get in.”


Mitch Boyce

Kyle Kenagy

Nick King

Paddy Lawler

School: Lisle Year: Senior Impact: Boyce anchored a Lisle defense that pitched three consecutive shutouts down the stretch, helping the team advance to the 2A regional final. The senior defender consistently showed a prowess to shut down opposing forwards and an ability to take the ball away and advance it up field.

School: Benet Year: Junior Impact: Kenagy recorded a hat trick in the first game of the season and kept a torrid scoring pace all season, registering at least a goal or an assist in every game except for two. He led the team in scoring and guided the Redwings to a share of the East Suburban Catholic Conference title and a regional title.

School: Downers Grove South Year: Senior Impact: Goalie Nick King was a wall in net for Downers Grove South. Backstopping an offense that struggled at times, he was often counted on to keep matches close. King allowed 19 goals in 22 games and recorded five shutouts – including a playoff shutout against Downers Grove North.

School: Benet Year: Senior Impact: A year after scoring the most goals on the team, Lawler took on a more defensive role with the Redwings. The East Suburban Catholic all-conference midfielder ensured that his presence was felt on the defensive side, consistently improving his tackling and take-away ability and helping the team record four shutouts.

Bryan Loebig

Hugo Lopez

Luis Loya

Christian Meyer

School: Bolingbrook Year: Senior Impact: Loya ascended as Bolingbrook’s top midfielder during the 2013 season. A powerful ball striker endowed with the ability to shut down opposing offenses, Loya was named to the 2013 Southwest Suburban all-conference team and all-sectional team, and was crowned the 2013 team MVP.

School: Hinsdale Central Year: Senior Impact: The most talented ball handler and finisher in the area, Meyer scored 17 goals and had 12 assists this season, leading his team to an undefeated regular season. He is considering pursuing soccer at Cornell University next year. Meyer played three years of varsity and was an all-state selection this season.

School: Hinsdale Central Year: Sophomore Impact: Loebig proved that talent outweighs inexperience. He earned his spot in the Hinsdale Central midfield with speed, tenacity and steadfast ball control. Like the other Red Devil midfielders, Loebig quickly became a constant fixture in the box score.

School: Bolingbrook Year: Senior Impact: Lopez capped a successful varsity career as Bolingbrook’s top scorer with 10 goals and eight assists. He was a twotime Southwest Suburban all-conference selection, back-to-back all-sectional forward and the “engine that powers the team,” according to head coach Jamie Clemmons.

HONORABLE MENTION Benet – Sam Knapke Bolingbrook – Frimpong Sintim Downers Grove North – Jake Mauer Downers Grove South – Mike Flores Hinsdale Central – Max Krohn

Jack Niestrom School: Hinsdale Central Year: Junior Impact: This midfielder’s strong ball-handling skills steadied an offense that thrived and excelled in winning the possession battle. But Niestrom was also a main fixture on the stat sheet, scoring and assisting on many timely goals. He was named to the all-sectional team this season.

Michael Rindler

Teodor Trifunovski

Hinsdale South – Dean Serritella

School: Benet Year: Senior Impact: Rindler anchored the midfield this season, provided ample help on defense and notched double-digit goals. As a result of the spiked offensive output, Rindler was named East Suburban Catholic all-conference and was an all-sectional selection on a team that won a regional title.

School: Lemont Year: Junior Impact: This forward was the catalyst of the Indians’ offense. An IHSSCA all-sectional selection as well as a member of the South Suburban all-conference team, Trifunovski topped Lemont with 24 goals. The junior was also an adept passer, dishing out nine assists.

Lemont – Andrew Chialdikas, Roy Delatore Lisle – Jimmy Gill Westmont – Scott Larem, Michael Robertson, Jordan Slagle

‘Peanut’ Tillman is key for Bears vs. Lions Hub Arkush

How much difference can six days make in the fortunes of an NFL team? Heading into Monday night, Bears fans were jumping off the bandwagon faster than rats deserting a sinking ship. Aaron Rodgers goes down, and the Bears pull off a shocking upset. Now, the Bears, Packers and Lions find themselves in a three-way dead heat atop the NFC North, all three at 5-3 and the Bears with a win over the Packers but a loss to the Lions, and the Packers with a win over Detroit. Now if the Bears can knock off the Lions – hey, they just soundly beat the Packers, didn’t they? – they will find themselves with a firm grip on the division with seven games to play and hopes of getting healthier as well as reinforcements in the form of Jay Ratliff.

The buzz is all around that Jay Cutler is coming back early, not from Dr. Brandon Marshall this time but from ESPN. Marc Trestman has said the doctors will decide, not the four-letter network or Cutler. Besides, after watching Josh McCown vs. the Packers, what’s the hurry? Charles “Peanut” Tillman is the key to the Bears beating the Detroit Lions. Certainly, the Bears will have to find a way to deal with Reggie Bush, who torched them in their Week Four meeting in Detroit. And whoever plays quarterback will have to be a lot better than Cutler was in the first half last time. But at the end of the day, nobody plays Calvin “Megatron” Johnson as effectively as Tillman, and he is going to have to do it again. Detroit will be coming off a bye, and Megaton’s most recent muscle memories will be of having put up the second-best receiving day in NFL history in their last-second, miraculous victory over the Cowboys.

As well as McCown played against the Packers – and I still believe it should be and will be him against Detroit – he’s not ready to get into a shootout with Johnson and Matt Stafford. Stafford is on pace to throw for more than 5,200 yards this season, with 2,617 in his first eight games, 16 touchdowns, six interceptions and a 94.6 passer rating. The Lions’ offensive line is doing a great job of protecting him, allowing only 10 sacks in the first half of the season. Bears fans can take solace in the fact the Bears sacked Rodgers and Seneca Wallace five times Monday night after managing only nine sacks in their first seven games. But let’s be honest – the five Packer sacks included only four quarterback hits. The sack of Rodgers was after Shea McClellin had been blocked out of the play and Rodgers ran back to him, and all but the Corey Wootton sack were coverage sacks. The Lions are third in total offense, sixth in average gain per

offensive play, first in percentage of quarterback sacks allowed, fifth in time of possession, and sixth in points per game. They will pose a much stiffer test for the Bears’ defense than the Wallace-led Packers did. The matchup between the Bears’ offense and the Lions’ defense should be kinder to the Bears. Matt Forte had his best game of the year in Green Bay, with 24 carries and 125 yards rushing, a 5.2 average, and one touchdown, and five catches for 54 yards. The Lions may not have an answer. Detroit’s defense is porous, ranking 25th overall, 30th in average gain per play allowed, 28th versus the run, 30th sacking the quarterback, and 18th in points allowed. The one category they are very good in is third- down efficiency, where they’re second, but that’s because they so rarely get to third down with all the big plays they give up. I know the shootout we expected in Green Bay didn’t happen. But if Stafford lasts four quarters, expect this to be a different story.

On to Week 10 … The Browns, Chiefs, Patri-

ots and Jets have a bye. Washington travels to Minnesota for the Thursday game.

MATCHUPS TO EXPLOIT Redskins at Vikings, 7:27 p.m. Thursday Washington and Minnesota rank No. 30 and No. 31 respectively in points allowed, besting only the hapless Jaguars. Most Thursday night games are fantasy stinkers, but these teams can’t stop anyone, so expect a wide-open affair. Obvious starts are Adrian Peterson, Pierre Garcon and Alfred Morris. This is also

a great match-up for Robert Griffin III and Jordan Reed. If you usually start Jordan Cameron or Rob Gronkowski at tight end, you will need a fill-in this week. Consider John Carlson of the Vikings. With Kyle Rudolph out at least a month, Carlson could be productive in the Vikes’ dink-and-dunk attack. If you have an emergency QB situation, this would be a week you might actually consider starting Christian Ponder. (Did I actually just write that?) Lions at Bears, noon Sunday This is another offensive no-brainer. One thing is perfectly clear: The Bears cannot defend the run. Reggie Bush is an obvious start, and Joique Bell deserves consideration. Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson are obvious starts, although the Bears have done pretty well defending Megatron over the years. Brandon Pettigrew is a solid option and

if you’re looking for help at wide receiver, Kris Durham has established himself as the No. 2 in Detroit. On the other side of the ball, it has been reported that Jay Cutler might return this week. Either Cutler or McCown is a decent option at quarterback. Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall are must-starts. Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett are solid options. Broncos at Chargers , 3:25 p.m. Sunday Although the Chargers allow a pretty respectable 21.8 points a game, only four other teams have allowed more offensive yards. All the usual suspects are must-starts for the Broncos. Philip Rivers should be able to eclipse 300 yards and throw for at least two touchdowns. Keenan Allen has emerged as Rivers’ top target and is a must start.

LEM • Friday, November 8, 2013 • mysuburbanlife.com • LMR Suburban Life

November opened with a wild and wacky fantasy weekend. The Eagles went from approaching offensive obscurity to having their backup quarterback tie an NFL record with seven passing touchdowns. (By the way, Nick Foles looks just like the guy I used to copy off of in algebra.) In other developments … Christian Ponder showed a pulse in Dallas and posted 19 fantasy points. Tom Brady returned to form with 432 yards and 35 points. Winless Tampa Bay threw three touchdown passes in the first half, intercepted Russell Wilson twice, and nearly upset the vaunted Seahawks. Miami’s Lamar Miller rushed for more than 100 yards for the first time in his career (and the first Dolphin to crest

100 this season). And he did it against a tough Bengals’ defense. In that same game, the Dolphins defense picked off the previously red-hot Andy Dalton three times and won the game in overtime with a safety. Chris Johnson channeled his inner 2009 with 150 yards rushing and 29 fantasy points. Zac Stacy took another step toward establishing himself as a must-start as he also posted 29 points. Like CJ2K and Brady, Andre Johnson returned from the dead with 229 receiving yards and three touchdowns. The rarely injured Aaron Rodgers went out after one series, and the Bears were able to upset the Packers. The injury to Rodgers derailed the fantasy numbers of Packer wideouts, especially Jordy Nelson.

lection Day in the United States is typically the irst Tuesday of November. There can be other elections that are held throughout the year, but the irst Tuesday of November is the oficial day when many big national and local elections are held. Even though you are probably too young to vote, kids under the age of 18 can still be active in politics by reading up on candidates and issues that are important to their community, and asking their parents and teachers good questions. Are there any local elections being held in your city or state this year on Election Day? If you don’t know, there are many ways you can ind out: You can go to the website of your city or state election board, or there might even be articles in this newspaper that can point you in the right direction.

Hold a classroom vote A good way to learn about the democratic process is to hold a vote in your classroom. Election Days aren’t always about the people being elected — sometimes they are about a specific issue. 1. brainstorm. As a group, decide on an issue that is important to your classroom. You could vote on the kind of experiment you will be doing in your science class, what should be on the lunch menu or what sport you will be playing in gym class, for instance. Think about issues that will afect your daily life as a student. 2. pros and cons. Once the issue is decided, hold a hearing to debate the subject. Have your teacher monitor and call on students who raise their hands to rally for, or against, an issue. Keep track of the pros and cons on a sheet of paper. 3. Vote. After both sides of the issue are heard, hand out pieces of paper to each student, and then have them vote for one side. Each student’s vote should be kept secret and entered into a ballot box. 4. Count the vote and announce a winner. After each student has voted, the ballots will need to be counted by a teacher or other adult. After all the votes are counted, announce the winner and the final number of votes for each side. activity: Think about it, write about it: After your vote is held, think about why it is important to participate in the democratic process. Does it make a diference to speak up about why you supported, or did not support, an issue? Do you feel that your individual vote counted? What would you do diferently next time to get your voice heard?
