LEM • Friday, April 25, 2014 • • LMR Suburban Life

LEMONT – The District 113A Board of Education unanimously voted down a measure to have an outside company provide its busing services during a meeting Wednesday night. The board was weighing how much money it could save by outsourcing the service, which district bus drivers feared would mean a loss of their jobs. Board member Brian Bushnell spoke on behalf of the board before the vote. “One thing that we have all come to believe to be true is that the bus drivers are important to this community,” he said. He said that the district would have been able to save money by outsourcing but the drivers are enough of an asset that the board would like to keep them and try to figure out ways to save money with them. “We are willing to take that chance,” he said. Board president Cindy Kelly said the cost savings for contracting with First Student would have been $140,000 over three years. “We’re hoping we can work with drivers to get our costs down so we can have that same kind of savings,” she said. The drivers, who were in attendance to make a case for their jobs, expressed a combination of surprise and elation at the board’s decision. “We thought we were done as bus drivers,” Theresa Vejvoda said. Bus driver Ray Zick said the bus drivers and the district are like a family, which is why


Board rejects proposal to outsource busing


Board discusses revisions to housing plan By DAN FARNHAM LEMONT – The Lemont Village Board will go ahead with a vote on a preliminary plan for a 19-lot housing development despite changes to the plan that did not meet some of the village’s previous conditions. The board discussed the development, which would be on the east end of Stony Brook Drive in Mayfair Estates, during its Committee of the Whole meeting Monday. Tempo Development Inc. has presented multiple proposals since July to the board and the Planning and Zoning Commission, while addressing

concerns about the density of the 19 lots on the 6.5 acres. The proposed lot size would be smaller than what is allowed by that area’s zoning, but the village has agreed that it is the most economically viable layout for the size of the area. The developer made enough accommodations in his plan that the board suggested voting on it during a December Committee of the Whole meeting. Lemont Planning and Economic Development Director Charity Jones said the developer went through preliminary engineering and some of the aspects did not meet the conditions the village had placed on the project. “The biggest one in our

view was the fact that the landscaping was not as originally proposed,” she said. “One of the reasons the board was considering the allowance of the reduced lot sizes was because he was doing all this landscaping.” The landscaping is along the eastern edge of the development, which borders Interstate 355 and serves as an aesthetic and sound buffer from the tollway. The tollway is limiting the size of the landscaping to a 15foot strip. Jones said none of the changes were enough to keep the project from moving forward but were enough that they needed to be presented to

the board first. The board will vote on the Planned Unit Development and annexing the property into the village at a meeting to be determined. • The board discussed items that will be voted on during the next meeting on May 12. The board will vote on whether to start the process to refund 2005 General Obligation Bonds it used to finance the public works facility. Village Administrator George Schafer said the village would be able to save money on its debt by taking advantage of lower interest rates. The board will also decide whether to make permanent a temporary parking restriction

on the east side of Eagle Crest Drive next to the Centennial Pool. The restriction would be during pool season from May 1 to October 1. • The board also discussed the future of its Channel 6 program. Through the PEG fees it collects on AT&T and Comcast cable bills, the village will purchase new video equipment for its volunteers. Schafer said they also considered acquiring a donated vehicle to use as a production van but decided it was too early to do so. “We’re at the infant stages of improving the Channel 6 program,” he said.

Lemont resident tracks down Slovenian roots By DAN FARNHAM LEMONT – Lemont resident Lois Ryan went on a trip to Slovenia in September hoping to learn more about her grandmother, who had emigrated from there in 1909. In one day, she discovered not only her grandmother’s birth village, but relatives she did not know she had. Ryan was attending a conference for the Slovenian Genealogy Society International, which she joined last year.

“I’ve had a close relationship with my grandmother,” she said. “So, I wanted to trace my roots.” Ryan said that before arriving in Slovenia, she only knew that her grandmother, Mary Race, was born in a village called Rodik. Once in Slovenia, Ryan, along with her husband, Jim, traveled to Rodik to check on birth records. Although there were multiple people with her grandmother’s name born in that village the same year, they

were able to determine the house her grandmother was born in based on stories from when her grandmother came to visit in the 1960s. The house and farm are still owned by the Race family and have been renovated into a country farm guest house. Ryan said the speed in which she found her relatives was surprising. “The thing was that of all those folks that were at the genealogical conference, I was the only to find the village [my grandmother was from], find the house she was born in and find my second cousins,” she said. She said the cousins were equally excited to meet her. “They were flabbergasted,” she said. “They were thrilled.”

Water agency set to re-file suit By RYAN TERRELL The Northern Will County Water Agency is preparing to re-file its eminent domain suit to take control of the water pipeline owned by private utility American Lake Water Company. Four of the agency’s five member communities approved an ordinance that addresses “procedural” issues with the first lawsuit, according to agency attorney Jim Boan, clearing the way for the suit to be re-filed. Lemont and Romeoville approved the ordinances April 14 and April 16, respectively, while Bolingbrook and Homer Glen approved it Tuesday night. Woodridge was set to vote on

the ordinance Thursday night after press time, although the vote is essentially meaningless, as a majority of the member communities have already approved the ordinance, according to Jim Boan, the water agency’s lead attorney. “The statute only requires the majority of the agency,” Boan said. The ordinance allows each of the agency’s member towns to be listed as individual plaintiffs in the eminent domain suit. Previously, the suit listed only the agency’s name – an issue that could have been a potential legal argument for American Lake Water Company, according to Boan. The lawsuit attempts to take control of the 30-mile Bedford Park transmission line that

brings water from Bedford Park to the southwest suburbs, including the five towns in the agency, via eminent domain. Eminent domain gives power to government bodies to seize private property without owner’s consent. The mayors of the five agency towns contend that their ownership of the pipeline would result in lower water bills, though the agency has yet to propose how it can do that. The effort is in response to continued water rate hikes from Illinois American Water – a sister company of American Lake Water – that have brought the cost of water to “unprecedented levels,” according to the agency. Obtaining ownership of the pipeline from the privately owned water company would

“eliminate the profit motive inherent in private ownership,” the lawsuit states. IAW contends the agency has cost taxpayers “over $1 million” in growing legal costs and the company has challenged the water agency to present a business plan for water services that would result in lower rates. In a statement emailed to Suburban Life Media, IAW questioned the water agency’s accountability. “Eminent domain will continue to be a time-consuming, expensive process for all communities involved, as we have said for the past seven years. We continue to disagree with the course of action the agency has chosen to take because it’s not in the best interests or our customers,” the statement read.

Water agency approves budget The Northern Will County Water Agency met on April 7, approving an estimated $562,900 budget for May to December. The estimated expenditures are broken down per town: Bolingbrook: $442,940 (78.7 percent) Homer Glen: $115,653 (20.5 percent) Woodridge: $3,850 (.684 percent) Lemont: $332 (.059 percent) Romeoville: $123 (.022 percent) Source: Northern Will County Water Agency

13-year-old hits hole-in-one at Cog Hill By DAN FARNHAM LEMONT – Many professional golfers and golfing enthusiasts have played at the Cog Hill Golf Course in Lemont, but not many can say they hit a hole-in-one there. Thirteen-year-old Matt Grasman of Lemont is now one of the few who can say he did. Matt hit his hole-in-one April 11 at the 140-yard 17th hole on Course 1. “I was very surprised,” he said. “I didn’t really notice that it went in at first. I had never gotten that close before.” Luckily, he had two friends playing with him to sign as witnesses for his golfing feat. Matt said he received a banner from the golf club to mark his achievement. His name can also be found on the Cog Hill website as the only person this year to hit a

Student nominated for state musical theater award By DAN FARNHAM

About Frank Zabilka LEMONT – Benet Academy student and Lemont resident Frank Zabilka is competing against the best high school actors in the state at the Illinois High School Music Theater Awards competition today in Chicago. Zabilka is one of 12 finalists for best actor in leading role for his portrayal of Billy Lawler in “42nd Street” this spring at Benet. “I was super excited,” he said. “I almost didn’t think I was going to get nominated. It’s a very tight competition.” Benet musical director Brian Wand said each production only has a couple of roles that can be nominated for an award, and each school can submit one candidate in each category. Benet student Alex Oechsel was also nominated for best actress in a leading role from the same production. “Frank and Alex’s performances were so strong, so mov-

“Probably the Blackhawks. I’m more of a hockey fan overall.” Gregg Markiewicz, Lemont

Unionizing college athletes How do other unionized employees at colleges and universities feel about football players and other athletes unionizing? I attended a large state university. The professors, the secretaries, the nurses at the university hospital, campus security personnel and custodians and maintenance personnel were all unionized. I’d like to know if they are happy that there are college athletes who want to join the fight for better conditions for workers? Or do they think these are a bunch of whining crybabies who, but for the fact they are good at sports, might not have been admitted to a specific school, let alone get free tuition, books and room and board?

Against sign changes I find it interesting that Downers Grove has made or is making businesses replace their signs because of the village sign ordinance of 2005. This is just another way for politicians to get money from businesses they don’t deserve. Making businesses change the size and location of their signs so they are smaller and set back further from the road is a joke. The existing signs seem to be fine for years and even decades but the brain trust behind this decision knows what is best as long as they can make money they do not deserve just because they can. Can’t some of these businesses file class action lawsuits against this ridiculous ordinance? Downers Grove has already lost two lawsuits from companies that did not agree with the revised sign regulations.

Truth about pensions I’d like to respond on the comment made by the person who wrote a position on state teacher pensions. They start off by saying Illinois teachers’ pensions are

primarily funded by the taxpayers, which is largely inaccurate. I hope people will do their homework when they take a position on this stance. I thought that was the case as well until I became a teacher. I’ve been teaching for 10 years, and a good portion of my salary is contributed to the teachers’ pension fund that I’m a participant in. People are misinformed and that’s something that needs to be changed. Currently teachers can retire at the age of 55, but that is also being phased out. People need to understand that the political problems of our state are not the result of the teachers’ pensions issues, but they’re the result of mismanagement of our state tax dollars overall.

Clean up the mall It seems the new owners of the Yorktown Mall are not as concerned with cleanliness as were the old owners. When are the dirty floors in the food court, and the dusty footprints in the various construction sites going to be cleaned up? Under the previous ownership there was almost always someone cleaning the floors and dusting the fixtures. Not so much now! See SOUND OFF, page 16

So why doesn’t the Westmont village or some community service organization clean the garbage that is littered along 67th Street, across from the pond and bordering the golf course? It is a major eyesore.

Comments cellphones while operating their from some of the aldermen were vehicles.

Panel: Will County sees drop in heroin deaths

The number of heroin overdose deaths in Will County dropped from 58 in 2012 to 38 in 2013, thanks in part to expanded educational awareness, local officials told the Young Adults Heroin Use Task Force. However, monitoring deaths is only the tip of the iceberg, Will County Coroner Pat O’Neil told the state-appointed task force, which is collecting testimony on heroin abuse from communities throughout Illinois. A more effective indicator might be to track overdose treatments by first responders, who often are able to save victims by using anti-opiate drugs such as Narcan. “Our morgue would not be able to accommodate all those numbers [of potential deaths] without Narcan,” O’Neil said. “We’d need a gymnasium.” O’Neil was one of six local speakers at Saturday’s task force hearing at Troy Middle School in Plainfield. Also making presentations were Will County Executive Larry Walsh; Pete McLenighan, executive director of Stepping Stones abuse treatment center; Kathleen Burke, president of Strategic Prevention, a consulting firm specializing in substance abuse; Julie McCabe-Sterr, a drug court officer with the Will County State’s Attorney’s office; and Paige, a drug court participant. O’Neil said his office has been monitoring heroin deaths since 1999, when the county had only a pair of deaths. During the past 14 years, about 300 people have died from heroin overdose, O’Neil said. The demographics of those dying from the drug also have changed drastically, O’Neil said, with everyone from homeowners to businessmen to honor students using the drug. The greatest increase has been among youth age 21 and younger. “It’s certainly a situation where this drug is very easy to get, it’s inexpensive and it’s very addictive,” O’Neil said. “No one experiments with

heroin. You use it once, and it pretty much owns you.” McLenighan emphasized the addictive nature of the drug, explaining how heroin dependency changes a user both mentally and physically. “It’s not a moral failure but a chronic disease,” McLenighan said. Treatment is a life-long process, and those who break the habit often are at the greatest risk of overdose, McLenighan said. Users develop a tolerance to opiates over time and require greater amounts to get high. Abstinence decreases that tolerance, and many users unknowingly overdose themselves during relapses, McLenighan said. Paige, a participant in Will County Drug Court, a county program aimed at helping abusers get and stay clean, experienced such a setback. After spending about six months in jail to get clean – a drug court requirement – Paige was moved into the women’s recovery center. She relapsed in drug court and overdosed for the first time. After another session in jail, she is back in recovery and scheduled to graduate from drug court in September. But getting help to those who need it is becoming increasing difficult. Stepping Stones, which has seen its state funding cut by 42 percent in the past six years, has a large waiting list. Private insurers are reluctant to provide treatment for users because drug abuse is classified as mental health problem rather than a medical problem, Burke said. Drug abuse cases usually are treated by psychiatrists rather than medical doctors. Office visit reimbursement costs can be up to 10 times higher because of the mental health classification, Burke said. Burke said there often is a stigma attached to providing drugs like methadone and Suboxone to recovering users. Many see such treatment as replacing one addiction with another, and patients often are treated with disdain by pharmacy staff, she said.

Woman celebrates 90, still active in community By ED MCMENAMIN BOLINGBROOK – She’s traded golf and bowling for pinochle and dominos, but at almost 90 years old, if Mary Lou Shearhod’s has a secret for vitality and longevity, she insists she’s not keeping it from us. “I have no idea,” she said. “When my mother came from Europe and was raised on the farm, I look back, growing up we ate the proper way. She was used to giving us vegetables and meat and soup and stuff. I think I ate the right way. Yeah, I like a little desert here and there.” If it’s not diet, it might be her good humor, as evidenced by her book shelf. “I [have] a book called ‘How Not to Act Like a Little Old Lady,’ ” she said with a laugh near the end of the interview Thursday. “It said ‘don’t talk too much.’ But that’s hard.” She lives unassisted in the seven-bedroom Bolingbrook home she bought with her late husband in 1976. This month, she took her annual driving test. She passed, as she always does, but with a small perk – you don’t have to pay the test fee once you join the nonagenarian club. The Bolingbrook resident has been a fixture in Downers Grove philanthropy for years, notably as past president of the Advocate Good Samaritan Auxiliary, and she remains active at the First Presbyterian Church of DuPage, among other organizations. She will celebrate her 90th birthday May 3 at the First Presbyterian Church of DuPage, 180 N. Weber Road, Bolingbrook. Friends of Shearhod’s who would like to attend should RSVP with Jerry Hughes at 773-586-6193. Bolingbrook also bestowed an honor on Shearhod this month, with the mayor declaring her actual birthday, April 29, 2014, as Mary Lou Shearhod Day in an official proclamation. Shearhod was born April 29, 1924, in the West Englewood neighborhood of Chicago, and she explains the com-

munity was a much different place. “It was old, but there was no crime,” Shearhod said. “(My friend and I) lived a mile apart. I’d walk home from her place at 10 o’clock at night and never be afraid.” Eventually, Shearhod and her husband, Rolland, relocated to a bungalow in Beverly and then Bolingbrook in 1976. When Rolland, a nonsmoker, succumbed to lung cancer in a matter of months in 1985, she took early retirement from Johnson & Johnson. The last 29 years have been filled with travel both near and far – she’s been to every state, in addition to trips to Russia, China, Japan, among other countries – and volunteer work throughout the Downers Grove area. In Downers Grove, she served as president of the Downers Grove Women’s Club in 1999 and again in 2008. She also was president of the Advocate Good Samaritan Auxiliary in 1990 and then turned around its Gingham Tree Resale Shop in 1991, more than doubling its sales, she said. Driver’s license intact, vision and hearing passing muster, Shearhod gets around town to church events and volunteer activities in her Chevrolet Impala. “Everybody treats me very nicely, in fact I didn’t catch on,” she said. “I just thought they were friendly. I’m 90 and they think they have to take care of me. I have everybody saying ‘I’ll pick you up.’ ”

Restaurant reviews

Hokkai lends spicy kick to the art of sushi GLEN ELLYN – Whether you’re a sushi connoisseur or still struggling to master your chopsticks, Hokkai has a dish for just about everyone. Tucked away in a Glen Ellyn shopping plaza, the restaurant is a hidden gem among the stores. At first blush, the restaurant appears fairly small, but the interior decor and ambiance provide the perfect setting for a modern and personal dining experience. The simple neon lighting that accents the walls of Hokkai allowed us to focus on the main attraction: the sushi. After being seated right away, my mom and I began to peruse the menu, discovering that deciding what to order was much harder than we’d anticipated. Hokkai’s menu could please anyone, thanks to selections ranging from a California Roll to a Spicy Tuna Salad. The restaurant also serves teriyaki chicken, beef and other cooked dishes for customers who may not be as adventurous or sushi adept. To start off, we ordered edamame and the Kani Salad, which consists of crabmeat with cucumber and a spicy mayo dressing. As we nibbled on the salted soybeans and salad, we decided on what to order next. It was the Angry Dragon Roll – a combination of shrimp tempura, avocado, spicy king crab and orange edamame sauce – that caught my mom’s eye. And as spicy and delicious as the roll tasted, it was the presentation we enjoyed the best. Individual sushi rolls form the body of a dragon, with an orange delicately carved to depict the head. The Pop Up Roll – my personal favorite – was just as tasty, and featured crabmeat, cucumber, avocado and spicy salmon on top. Knowing full well our stomachs were too stuffed for any more, we watched the different creations being

It’s a kicker with spicy mayo, spicy tuna, spicy salmon and avocado wrapped in soybean paper with chili sauce on top.

Lemont goalkeeper Kelly Fritz throws the ball up the field April 15 against Oak Lawn. Fritz recorded a shutout Tuesday in the Indians’ 5-0 win against Evergreen Park.

Still rolling By SCOTT SCHMID LEMONT – For a Lemont girls soccer team that has state title aspirations, one wouldn’t blame the Indians for possibly looking ahead. But so far this season, complacency hasn’t been an issue at all. Lemont ran its unbeaten streak to begin the season to nine matches with a 5-0 win against Evergreen Park on Tuesday. Kim Jerantowski netted a hat trick to lead the offense for the Indians, who improved to

LEMONT TOP PERFORMERS “We are defending well as • Kim Jerantowski: 3 goals a unit and the saves Kelly has • Aleksandra Mihailovic: 1 goal had to make, she has made,” Prangen said. “And Kelly also • Joy Drassler: 1 goal does a great job keeping people’s heads in the right place.” Heading into Tuesday’s game, Lemont was coming 8-0-1. “I thought the first goal off a 1-0 win against Downers we scored was of really good Grove South on Saturday as quality,” Lemont coach Rick Jerantowski scored the lone Prangen said. “We had four or goal on a penalty kick that was five one-touch passes before drawn by Aleksandra Mihaigoing into the back of the net.” lovic. “It was a good win,” the At the other end of the field,

coach said. “That was a nice, hard game for us. We had a couple of chances to make it 2-0, but we didn’t take advantage. They [DGS] were dangerous at times, but I thought we did a good job defending them. “Saturday’s game was playoff-like in nature where every challenge meant something. We still have room for improvement, but that was a good game for us.” As far how he would sum up the first part of the season, Prangen said it has been pretty up and down. “Our first four or five games were on the football field at the

high school,” he said of playing on the synthetic turf surface. “The spring season is always hard, but this year it’s been brutal. It is tough to train for a month without any games. We are still figuring things out in terms of what we need to do, but slowly but surely, we are getting better.” After taking on Downers Grove North on Thursday, Lemont returns to action on Saturday with a home game against Lincoln-Way West. South Suburban Conference matchups with the Thornton Fractional co-op and Richards are on tap next week.

Sublette helps Lemont respond to first loss By SCOTT SCHMID LEMONT – Lemont’s Ryan Sublette got the opportunity to make his first varsity start on the mound Tuesday. The freshman right-hander certainly didn’t disappoint. Striking out eight of the last nine batters he faced, Sublette allowed just one hit in his six innings of work during Lemont’s 9-0 win over Tinley Park. “We were looking forward to seeing him,” said Lemont assistant coach Chris Hardy, who was filling in for absent head coach Brian Storako. “He’s done a great job at the sophomore level. We have a lot of games this week and this was an opportunity [for him] to come help us. “He’s a talented kid and we are looking forward to having him for the next four years.” Sublette finished with 10 strikeouts and just one walk. “He’s got nice zip on the fastball,” Hardy said, “and with the best catcher [Mike Papierski] in the state behind the plate, he wasn’t afraid to throw his curveball in any situation.” A first inning RBI single by Nick Wisz proved to be the only offensive support Sublette needed. Wisz drove in another run in the second with a hit. Eric Tucker provided an RBI single in the third and Mike Wisz and Jake Terrazas drove in runs in the fifth. Papierski added a solo homer an inning later. “We moved Nick up in the order to the two-spot and it

Lemont leaders (through April 22) BATTING • Mike Wisz: .435 BA, 12 RBI, 10 R • Mike Papierski: .421 BA, 12 RBI, 13 R • Eric Tucker: .333 BA, 8 R PITCHING • Garrett Action: 2-0 W-L, 25 IP, 1.68 ERA • Charlie Wright: 3-0 W-L, 2 SV, 1.16 ERA • Austin Tittle: 13.1 IP, 0.53 ERA • Jake Latz: 2-0 W-L, 11 IP, 23 SO

worked,” Hardy said. “He’s been hitting the ball well most of the year.” Lemont was coming off its first loss of the season, a 4-3 defeat to Lincoln-Way North in 10 innings on Saturday. The Indians were held to five hits with Papierski notching two of them. Garrett Acton pitched well in 61/3 innings. “It was a great battle between two very good pitchers,” Hardy said. “It was a back and forth game.” A day before the 10-inning loss, the Indians beat Sandburg 1-0 behind a 14-strikeout performance from Jake Latz, who allowed just four hits in a complete-game effort. Mike Wisz drove in the lone run. On April 17, the squad beat Shepard 4-1 in eight innings. Austin Tittle threw 61/3 innings on the mound and struck out five, Mike Wisz had three hits and Tucker contributed two hits and two RBIs.

Lemont pitcher Jessica Spinelli delivers a pitch during Tuesday’s game against Hillcrest. Scott Schmid -

Lemont gets comfortable win By SCOTT SCHMID LEMONT – In the midst of a season that has been filled with a litany of close games so far, Lemont’s softball team got to take a bit of a breather Tuesday. Jumping out to an early 6-0 lead, coach Chris Traina was able to play her entire roster in an eventual 11-1, five-inning win against Hillcrest. “It’s always nice to play everybody,” Traina said, “and we have confidence in all of them.” Rylie Jay had an RBI single in the opening inning before Lauren May followed with an two-run double. Jay added a two-run homer in the second, May and Elaina Latz contributed run-scoring hits in the fourth, and Maddy Vermejan drove in Autumn Rita with the final run in the fifth inning after Rita tripled.

Lemont 11 Hillcrest 1 LEMONT TOP PERFORMERS • Rylie Jay: 2-for-2, HR, 3 RBI • Lauren May: 2-for-3, 2B, 3 RBI • Emily Durham: 2 IP, 3 SO “Our bats are coming around, but there are little things we’ve got to keep working on,” Traina said. “As I keep saying, this group has a lot of fight. Even if we are down, they keep coming back.” Traina continued to use a pitching-by-committee approach against Hillcrest as Emily Durham started and tossed two frames before Jessica Spinelli came on in relief. In Monday’s 16-6 win against Argo, Lauren Young got the starting nod and Spinelli closed out the contest. “The best way of saying it

is if someone isn’t on, somebody else will step in and help the team out,” the coach said. “All of them have started at different times and all of them have come on in relief at different times.” In the five-inning victory against Argo, Vermejan was 3-for-3 with a home run and four RBIs, and Jay added three hits and four RBIs. On April 17, the Indians beat 2013 Class 3A third-place finisher Tinley Park, 5-4, as May was 3-for-3 with an RBI. Lemont, which entered Thursday’s game against TF North with a 12-4 record, will play Evergreen Park in a make-up game today before traveling to Plainfield South for a 10 a.m. matchup Saturday. “We definitely want to keep working on things,” Traina said, “We never want to be satisfied. These girls are willing to work to get better.”

olfers rejoice! Those dreaded slices or hooks could become a thing of the distant past thanks to adjustable clubs and drivers. In addition to helping improve accuracy, adjustable clubs also lighten golf clubs enab the load in your golf bag. table le s u With a few twists of a dj tu n e e n t heir s o fi wrench or even turning the win ers t y a l shaft of the driver itself, r e o p m r e r cisio fo n golfers can adjust the face angle, loft and lie angle of the driver to hit the ball farther and straighter. Golfers can make small adjustments to create the right loft and improve distance without having to purchase a new club or visit a club fitter. Many club manufacturers now offer adjustable drivers and other clubs. According to an informal poll on, 34 percent of the 2,337 respondents owned an adjustable driver by the end of 2011. The ability to upgrade shafts has also become popular as golfers respond to what the pros are doing. Adjustable golf clubs enable golfers to walk out onto the course with one driver and a few different shafts. With a couple of clicks from a wrench, a person can have an entirely new driver. That cuts down on the equipment that needs to be carried and can fine tune a golfer’s accuracy. These high-tech clubs are corresponding to changes being made to golf balls. Engineers have reduced the spin on golf balls to help the balls travel farther. To do so, golf experts advise that the ball needs to be hit higher into the air. Adjustable drivers can give players the edge they need to produce the right height and trajectory. According to data from golf club manufacturer TaylorMade, 70 percent of consumers who use the company’s adjustable drivers adjust their club at least once to get the desired shot. Afterward, 10 to 15 percent of adjustable driver users report further adjustments as they become comfortable with the features. Although golfers can now put adjustments into their own hands, it is still adviseable to get a professional fitting regardless of which clubs are chosen. A certified club fitter can help a person sort through the myriad options available and make recommendations based on various factors, including the golf ball used. Those who are not fans of adjustable drivers say that the adjustment mechanisms add weight to the drivers, which can compromise efficiency. However, that isn’t stopping larger numbers of golf fans from taking adjustable drivers for a trial run in an effort to improve their game.

Help kids learn the game of golf


Golf Guide

dults who play golf know just how fun and frustrating the game can be. Whether you’re a veteran golfer or someone just learning the links, golf can be challenging. But as exacting as the game can be, it also can be just as rewarding, even for kids. Children who embrace the game of golf will learn a host of lessons they can apply in all facets of life. A humbling game even for professional golfers, golf can teach kids lessons in humility and the value of persistence even when things aren’t going your way. Golf is also a great way for parents to get kids off the couch and outdoors for some fun in the sun. Instead of spending summer afternoons in front of the television, kids who play golf are out patrolling pristine golf courses while getting some cardiovascular exercise along the way. Golf can also strengthen a child’s hand-eye coordination, which can help them in other activities, including many different sports. Though many people do not begin playing golf until they’ve reached adulthood, it’s never too early for boys and girls to start learning the game of golf. Parents of preschoolers can start their kids off with a toddler play set. Though it’s just a toy, a play set can help lay a solid foundation for future golfers. Kids who have watched Mom and Dad play golf or practice their swing can develop their own swings on their play set. As kids approach school age, don’t overlook the nearby putt-putt or miniature golf range as a valuable teaching tool. Miniature golf clubs are small enough for many children to use comfortably, and kids can use miniature golf courses as a place to put any lessons or advice on putting to good use. What’s more, a miniature golf course is more than just golf, with creative courses and other fun activities, so kids won’t feel overwhelmed with golf. When kids move on from preschool to elementary school, some might want to tag along with Mom or Dad to the driving range. You should try to avoid overwhelming kids with too much instruction or information. Instead, keep things as simple as possible, teaching them the basic swing and encouraging them no matter how quickly they adapt. As kids enter middle school and approach high school, those who are enjoying the game of golf can take advantage of the driving range if they haven’t already begun to. A driving range typically has markers that indicate the distance of a regular hole, regardless of which tee you will play from on an actual golf course. Kids can aim for holes at shorter distances to learn how far their drives are going. You can then adjust the lessons you teach your children based on how far youngsters can drive the ball. As a child gets closer to high school, you might want to buy the child his or her own set of clubs. Look for inexpensive clubs (oftentimes, thrift stores or other secondhand retailers have clubs for sale) because growing children will eventually grow out of their first set of clubs. When your child finds a set of clubs that suits 8700 Carriage Green Dr, Darien, IL 60561 him or her, teach the proper way to swing and consider signing up your son or daughter for lessons. Those first few lessons can prove invaluable, turning a pastime into a passion kids will carry with them throughout their lives.

Aspen trees often grow in colonies, or big groups, of many trees that are attached at the roots. some colonies of aspen trees are thousands of years old.

Walnut trees are deciduous trees with distinctive leaves that turn bright colors in the fall, and they produce walnuts. This is a common tree in the eastern United states.

spruce trees are evergreen, meaning that their needles stay green and bright throughout the winter. in colorado, you will find the blue spruce, which has silvery blue needles.
