A story in the May 30 edition of the Lemont Suburban Life about the closure of Mount Assisi Academy misstated the name of a retirement home on the campus. The correct name is Alvernia Manor. Lemont Suburban Life regrets the error.

In January, the school announced it would be closing, citing low enrollment, an increasing budget deficit and the small number of Franciscan Sisters available to serve the school. Quigney said the Franciscan Sisters do not have a definite plan of what they will do with the building. It is part of a larger campus that includes the Alvernia Manor retirement home.

Homeowners have their say about tree removal By DAN FARNHAM LEMONT – Kathy and Frank Demari have chosen a public way to express their frustration that the Village of Lemont Public Works Department removed a Bradford Pear tree from the parkway in front of their house. The couple that lives on Wheeler Drive has put up a large sign accusing the public works department of unnecessarily cutting down a healthy tree. “Public works cut down our beautiful, vibrant tree for no reason,” the sign reads. “They informed us afterward that ‘We can do whatever we want, and there is nothing you can do about it.’ Public works cut the tree. Now, they can cut the grass, too.” The tree was cut down on May 21 after a storm the previous night. Lemont Public Works Director Ralph Pukula said public

unusual about the removal of the tree. The tree belongs to the village because it was planted in the parkway, and the village would have been liable for any injury or damages caused by the tree. Kathy Demari said that the only damage her husband had seen was a branch that had fallen off. “If that tree was unsafe or posed a danger to the community, we’re all for having it cut down,” she said, adding that she was “shocked” when she came home from work that day and found the whole tree gone. She said that part of the reason they are upset is that they had planted the tree themselves as part of a village occupancy Dan Farnham - requirement when building the Residents in the 300 block of Wheeler Drive have put up a sign to pro- house. test a tree that was cut down in the parkway in front of their house.

a public works employee supposedly said that it was the village’s property and they could do what they want. Kathy said she knows it is their word against the village’s, but wishes the public works department had communicated with them better about their decision process. Pukula said the public works employees tried to talk to the Demaris before they cut down the tree. “We knocked on the door,” he said. “No one was home. We couldn’t wait until someone was home. It was a safety hazard.” Kathy said her husband wishes the workers had taken a picture of the damage to the tree. For the time being, the Demaris are following through on their threat to not cut the grass in the parkway. “When they show me the ordinance that I have to maintain the grass, I will maintain the grass,” Kathy said.

Autoimmune condition? Living with an autoimmune disorder can afect every part of your life. It keeps you from enjoying the good things in life… time with your kids, grandkids, activities like goling, biking, yard work and gardening. Did you know that leaky gut syndrome is a precursor to an autoimmune disease? Did you know that your gut makes up 80% of your immune system? An autoimmune disorder is when your immune system attacks your own body. here is NO CURE for autoimmune disorders, but you can calm down the immune response NATURALLY. 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 whole body and the many systems of the body, integrate their relationships, manage the underlying cause and use natural methods to manage autoimmune disorders.

Are you sufering with any of these autoimmune disorders? • Hashimotos hroiditis • Rheumatoid Arthritis • Graves Disease • Multiple Sclerosis • Scleroderma • Sjogren’s Syndrome • Type 1 Diabetes • Myasthenia Gravis • Ankylosing Spondylitis • Perniscious Anemia

• Lupus • ALS • Psoriasis • Vasculitis • Celiac Disease • Crohn’s Disease • Addison’s Disease • Urticaria (Hives) • Eczema • Raynauds

Medications are not always the long term answer. Medications can give you temporary relief but they DO NOT ADDRESS THE UNDERLYING CAUSE of your immune imbalance. All medications have side efects. hese side efects can be more detrimental than the original symptoms sometimes.

Did you know that medications to treat autoimmune conditions can WEAKEN your immune system and lead to infections and immune degenerative conditions including cancer? here is a time to use medications but not before a NATURAL way to manage the underlying imbalance. So how do I help people with autoimmune disorders? I use a combination of speciic NEUROLOGICAL protocols and NUTRITION recommendations… Neuro-Metabolic herapy. Your Brain (nervous System) controls all other systems of the body. It controls your immune system. digestive system, endocrine (hormone) system… so if you have an immune system imbalance or autoimmune condition, evaluating and managing the nervous system is required for optimal improvement.

Your immune system. here are 2 parts to the front line defense of your immune system… TH1 (white blood cells) and TH2 (antibody response). hese 2 parts should work in balance together. But when you are sufering from an autoimmune disorder, one part is out of balance (dominant). his leads to an imbalance in TH3 which in turn leads to an autoimmune response.

Testimonials I was diagnosed with Graves Disease (autoimmune thyroid) three years ago. My endocrinologist recommended surgery to remove my thyroid and put me on medication for the rest of my life. I searched for an alternative treatment to save my thyroid and found Dr. Forzley. hrough comprehensive lab testing he found out what was causing my immune system to attack my thyroid. I have been receiving treatments and following his recommendations exactly and my lab numbers are now normal, my endocrinologist is happy, my medication has been reduced in half and I feel better. I highly recommend Dr. Forzley and his natural approach. Samantha R. I sufered from unbearable itching caused by Hives (chronic autoimmune Urticaria) for over 33 years. Steroid medications helped the symptoms temporarily but the side efects were bad. Ater an in-depth blood and metabolic analysis, Dr. Forzley found the cause of my problem. Ater 4-5 months of strictly following his recommendations, my hives are completely gone and I feel great. Cheryl P. If your immune system is not managed properly, your condition can worsen, result in a poor quality of life, cause a shortening of the length of your life and cause other autoimmune disorders. Holistic herapy can manage autoimmune conditions by: 1) inding and balancing the underlying cause. 2) lowering the self destructive efects of the immune system. 3) using natural therapies that work with your body.

I can work with your immune system NATURALLY and balance the TH1, TH2, TH3 and TH17. You can never be cured of an autoimmune disorder. BUT, you can get symptom relief and calm down the immune attack on you own body. You must get a detailed immune system evaluation followed by speciic recommendation based on those tests. Guess what stimulates TH1?Vitamin C. But if you are TH1 dominant, Taking vitamin C will WORSEN your immune response. hat’s right worsen. We need to identify which part of your immune system is dominant in order to calm down the immune system. I don’t treat or cure autoimmune disorders. By using speciic neurological and nutritional protocols, I help to decrease your body’s inlammation, detoxify your body, balance TH1, TH2, TH3 and TH17 which NATURALLY boosts your immune system. THAT is how I address autoimmune disorders.

Selections (pasta sauces, jams and condiments), The Olive Gallery and Usborne Books. “I think people like the variety,” Pecina said. “As a smaller market, we can’t add more vegetable vendors and fruit vendors because it wouldn’t be worth it to them.” She said she is working on bringing in another vendor with more jams and jellies. Other vendors returning for

Illinois should join list of right-to-work states SPRINGFIELD – Thirty-one years ago, I gave a speech to my high school rhetoric class on how Illinois ought to become a right-to-work state. Back when I was in high school, my hometown of Galesburg was an industrial center that churned out lawnmowers, refrigerators, steel buildings and outboard motors. Industrial unions were powerful in Galesburg just as they were in nearby Peoria, Moline and all across Illinois. So my speech calling for ending compulsory unionism was not particularly well received. A right-to-work law simply means that employees VIEWS cannot be forced to join or Scott otherwise pay union dues in Reeder order to keep their jobs. Today, when I visit my hometown, I feel sadness. Those union factory jobs have evaporated. Many of my classmates have moved to other states to raise their families. The Maytag refrigerator plant has been shuttered. The Butler Manufacturing factory closed. Today, industrial unions are a shadow of their former selves. Factory jobs are migrating to right-to-work states – places where the marketplace, not union coercion, determine wages. The last time I wrote on this topic, union leaders responded by saying things are much worse in right-to-work states. Baloney. Take a look at our neighbors in Iowa and Indiana. Both states are right-to-work states but the economies there are chugging along quite nicely. Just consider these statistics compiled by the Illinois Policy Institute: • A net of roughly 5 million Americans moved from the nonRight-to-Work states to Right-to-Work states from 2000 to 2010. That’s an average of about one person every minute. • Right-to-Work states experienced population growth of 15.3 percent while population growth in non-right-to-work states was 5.9 percent between 2000 and 2010. • 28.5 percent of Americans lived in Right-to-Work states in 1970; by 2008, that percentage rose to nearly 40 percent (to over 121 million). Even Michigan, once the cradle of organized labor, has adopted a right-to-work law. By contrast. Illinois has clung to an outdated model of compulsory unionism. Labor unions like to talk about “empowering” workers. The reality is much different. Shouldn’t workers be free to choose?

D-113A says goodbye to Flat state budget retiring staff members draws criticism By DAN FARNHAM

By DAN FARNHAM LEMONT – They have a combined 110 years in Lemont School District 113A and have worked with students at all levels. The last day of school on Thursday was also the last day of work for several district staff members. However, don’t be surprised to see some of them around next year. A couple of the retirees said they plan to do substitute teaching. Here is a look at some of the retiring staff members:

Plans for retirement: “I plan to spend more time with my friends and family, as well as traveling and maybe working part-time.” What you will remember about District 113A: “I will remember the strength and dedication teachers have to the children of this community and how we, teachers, have supported one another through professional and personal crisis.”

Text alerts sponsored by: The Illinois State House of Representatives and state Senate passed a fiscal year 2015 budget that is being criticized by both state Republicans and Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn. The $35.7 billion budget, which is awaiting Quinn’s signature for approval, does not extend the 2011 tax increase. Though he made no indication on whether he would approve the budget, Quinn said in a statement it was an incomplete budget that postpones tough decisions on paying down the state’s bills. “I will work to minimize the impact of cuts in vital services while continuing to cut waste and maintain our hardwon fiscal gains,” he said. State Sen. Christine Radogno, R-Lemont, said in a news release this budget would only exacerbate Illinois’ budget problems. “Despite spending much of the spring warning of draconian, even dangerous cuts that would place education, human services and public safety in jeopardy unless a tax hike was passed, after failing to se-

cure the votes needed to make their 2011 ‘temporary’ tax hike permanent, this budget was patched together without a tax increase,” she said in the release. State Rep. Deb Conroy, D-Villa Park, voted in favor of the budget. “Because the Republicans weren’t willing to negotiate and come up with alternatives, I feel like the only option that we had was to do a flat budget,” she said. Conroy said it will be important for members of the state legislature to have honest discussions with their constituents on what needs to be done with the budget moving forward. “There are going to be tough decisions that need to be made,” she said. Radogno, the minority leader in the Senate, said the Democrats in the general assembly will likely try to revive the income tax increase during the lame duck session following the November election. “Outgoing lawmakers, who are no longer accountable to the voters, should not be approving such controversial legislation, especially tax increases,” she said in a release.

northeast to Argonne National Laboratory. Romeoville sent out a news release last week advising residents of the aerial treatment. Joliet and Crest Hill areas includes a rectangular section between Wilcox Street and Route 53, and Ludwig and Curtis avenues. A larger, secondary area stretches from the intersection of Route 30 and Ruby Street to Canal Street, north to Rockdale Junction and the railroad tracks. The treatment contains plastic PVC flakes the size of pencil shavings imbued with female moth pheromones designed to make it harder for the males to find females. Schirmer said the treatment is safe for humans. “We apply it at such a low rate, six grams to 15 grams per

acre,” Schirmer said. “Most commonly we’ve had people say they see some on the hood or windshield of their car after it’s dropped.” Romeoville, Crest Hill and northern Joliet were identified for the treatment because the department caught several moths in the area last year. “It wasn’t very bad so we’re not doing the heavy treatment,” Schirmer said. The department has treated several surrounding communities in the past couple of years, including Homer Glen, Lockport and Naperville. Schirmer said the moth populations are tested in different locations every year because the pests often spread to different locations via cars, trains and other modes of transportation.

Jaycees to host dinner for apartment fire victims By RYAN TERRELL WOODRIDGE – The Woodridge Jaycees have organized a Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser for 11 families displaced by an apartment complex fire this past month. The families have been living with friends and relatives since the May 1 fire destroyed the 12-unit complex in Golf Meadow Estates in the 7700 block of Woodward Avenue. All residents – and their pets – escaped the blaze without injury, but it caused substantial damage to the building, burning up most of the families’ belongings. Fire officials said a propane grill caused the fire. The dinner will be held

ROMEOVILLE – The emerald ash borer isn’t the only threat to trees in the area. The Illinois Department of Agriculture in the coming weeks will conduct aerial spraying for gypsy moths, an invasive species that threatens oak trees. “The [borer] is a hot-button topic right now, but the European gypsy moth has been around for 140 or 150 years,” said Scott Schirmer, a plant and pesticide specialist supervisor for the Illinois Department of Agriculture. The emerald ash borer, an invasive species from Asia, has been destroying ash trees here and across the United States. The gypsy moth is danger-

ous because in its caterpillar stage it devours leaves, which leads to defoliation, Schirmer said. The department wants to specifically protect the area’s oak trees. While other insects also defoliate trees and plants, the gypsy moth is an invasive species from Europe. Like the emerald ash borer, the ecosystem has no way of regulating the damage it can do. The Department of Agriculture will be flying planes over Romeoville, Crest Hill and Joliet within the next couple of weeks to spray an aerial treatment that will disrupt the moth’s mating season. Areas being treated in Romeoville are south of Interstate 55 including the I-355 overpass on New Avenue and Joliet Road at Rock Lake,

Doctor charged with possession, dissemination of child porn By DANNY CIAMPRONE DOWNERS GROVE – A Downers Grove physician, who had been practicing medicine in the village for about 30 years, was charged with 17 felony counts of possession and dissemination of child pornography May 29. Edward J. McMenamin, 67, 4221 Saratoga Ave., Downers Grove, appeared in bond court the morning of May 30 and faces five counts of dissemination of child pornography, each Class X felonies, and 12 Class 2 felony charges of possession of child pornography.

His bond was set at $500,000 with 10 percent to apply. “[The judge] asked Mr. McMenamin, the bond is $500,000, do you think you’ll be able to raise $50,000 to get out and his response was, ‘Yes, I think I should be able to get that,’” said DuPage County State’s Attorney spokesman Paul Darrah. Darrah said if found guilty on all counts, McMenamin could face 30 years in prison. Earlier in 2014, authorities from the Downers Grove Police Department received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding the

possible dissemination and possession of child pornography in Downers Grove. An investigation led by the Downers Grove Police Department, with assistance from the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office and the Department of Homeland Security, led authorities to McMenamin, who was allegedly in possession of numerous images and videos of child pornography. On May 29, a $500,000 arrest warrant was issued for McMenamin by Judge Jeffrey MacKay. About 5:30 p.m. the same day, McMenamin was taken into custody outside his

home without incident by the Downers Grove Police Department. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that works with the public, online industry and law enforcement to reduce child sexual exploitation, said Michelle Collins, vice president of the center’s exploited children division. Collins said the organization does not have information regarding the charges against McMenamin but said the center operates a CyberTipline where people can report incidents of child pornography and other sexual crimes against children. The CyberTipline receives about 10,000 reports a week, she said. The organization also receives reports from online electronic providers, such as Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter. “If [online providers] become aware of child pornography on their servers, they’re required by law to report it to the CyberTipline,” she said. “I don’t know in this case the source of the report, that may come out in some of the court documents, but essentially we receive reports through the CyberTipLine regarding suspected child sexual exploitation. “Our analysts review the report and try to determine the appropriate law enforcement agency to review the report.” From there, Collins said the law enforcement agency would have to go through the legal process to identify the actual individual suspected of possessing those materials. Downers Grove Police Chief

Robert Porter couldn’t discuss specifics about the case but said the reports were brought to authorities within the past couple months. He also could not provide information about what led authorities to charge McMenamin. Advocate Medical Group manager Gerry O’Keefe said in an email based on the “information currently available,” McMenamin’s ability to practice medicine at Advocate has been suspended. “To our knowledge, Dr. McMenamin has not been involved in any inappropriate acts with his patients,” O’Keefe said. “We will continue to cooperate with the authorities in their investigation.” As of Monday morning, McMenamin’s directory information was removed from Advocate Health Care’s website. McMenamin graduated from University of Illinois Abraham Lincoln School of Medicine in Chicago in 1978, according to the Downers Grove Family Practice website. He did his residency at McNeal Memorial Hospital in Berwyn and became a partner of Downers Grove Family Practice in 1981. McMenamin also was chairman of the Department of Family Practice at Good Samaritan Hospital, according to the website. McMenamin’s next court appearance is scheduled for July 7 in front of Judge Blanche Hill Fawell. Additional conditions for McMenamin should he be able to post bond include no contact with children younger than 18 years of age and no computer or Internet access.

Restaurant reviews

Sweet & Savory hits the spot in Westmont WESTMONT – Buddy Holly’s older lookalike takes his place at the microphone, ukulele in hand, the waiter in a Frank Zappa T-shirt greets us with a smile, and the woman next to me, also with a ukulele, says, “I bet this isn’t what you were expecting for a first date.” It was The Sweet & Savory Spot, and the name itself embodies the restaurant in both atmosphere and selection. Sweet, delightful, quaint, and what was once the best kept secret in Westmont obviously has become a go-to favorite in the bustling downtown area along Cass Avenue. A window storefront allowed an abundance of light to shine through the dining area on one of the first days people could actually call summer-like. Flowers decorating the tables were surrounded by guests’ mason jars of craft beer and lemonade, all set under a “Life is Sweet” sign. Meanwhile, our Buddy Holly friend queued up the first song. “We’re going to kick it off how we always do with ‘Jambalaya,’” he said, and much like the sunny light from outside, the sweet sounds of summer allowed us a dream escape to a private beach in Hawaii. But my stomach was urging me to move my focus from the guest entertainment to the menu – one entire page highlighted craft beer. As for food, almost every kind of sandwich was listed, along with appealing salads and comfort foods every guest could savor. Those who know me know I’m a sucker for any kind of dip. In fact, after I retire from journalism, I have a plan to co-own my own full-service restaurant that serves craft beer, and then just assorted dips with finger food. It’s called “Sips & Dips.” I can’t take credit for that – it was all my companion’s idea. Don’t steal it. So my eye immediately caught the grilled chicken sandwich topped with guaca-

The Sweet & Savory Spot has turned into a popular dining destination in downtown Westmont.

The grilled chicken sandwich was garnished with lettuce, tomato, onion and guacamole, and paired with a generous side of macaroni and cheese.

My companion went with the Croque Madame, which I learned later that evening was a French ham and cheese sandwich. I had a bite and honestly can say I’ll never bypass a French take on ham and cheese, whose embellishments such as Mornay sauce and egg boost it up several

notches. Dessert was classic and sweet, serving up an array of cupcakes, brownies and pie. In fact, it was so good, it gave me inspiration for a new retirement/restaurant plan. It’s still a full-service restaurant, but now it only serves craft beer and pies. I call it “Pies & Pints.” That was my idea, so don’t steal it. Cupcakes and full plates

waiter who wasn’t smiling or asking patrons if they needed anything else. It wasn’t just the ukulele group I could tell was having a good time, but all the guests, who were arriving by the minute. When we first got there around the beginning of dinnertime, you were free to select a table. After five minutes, the entry door rarely stayed shut as a steady stream poured in. It was hypnotic to watch a

full room of people bob their heads to the musical tunes – and just for a little while, time slowed down to a point of delight on Cass Avenue. Whether accompanied by ukuleles or not, The Sweet & Savory Spot has made me a regular customer.

Lemont’s Jake Terrazas awaits a pitch in a regional semifinal game against Oak Forest on May 28. The Indians won that game and went on to defeat Lincoln-Way West in Saturday’s regional championship game.

Lemont battles back for regional title By SCOTT SCHMID JOLIET – With Jake Latz having not allowed an earned run this spring heading into the Class 3A postseason, his Lemont teammates haven’t had to do a lot of work with him on the mound. But that all changed in Saturday’s Joliet Catholic regional final. Trailing 2-0 heading into the bottom of the fourth inning, the Indians’ offense scored six runs in their final three at-bats to pull out a 6-2 win against

ko said. “They played well and worked hard for that. We are playing well at the right time.” Latz quickly recovered from the rough start to his outing and was back to his dominant self; for the game he allowed just four hits while striking out 13. “He’s obviously been at a high level all year,” the coach said. “Against the competition we’ve faced, for him to be this good has been really impressive. He has worked hard in the offseason and during the season and has really focused on the task at hand.”

Nick Wisz had the big hit of the contest as his two-run single in the fourth gave Lemont the lead for good. The sophomore finished 2-for-3 at the plate with three RBIs. Mike Wisz was 3-for-4 with two runs scored while Mike Papierski and Jake Terrazas combined to walk four times and score three runs. “Nick is the only sophomore starting every day on a senior-led team,” Storako said. “For him to produce like that at that part of the game, at that part of the season is very impressive.”

Lemont soccer suffers loss in supersectional By SCOTT SCHMID NORMAL – For the second consecutive year, Lemont’s girls soccer team had to travel two-plus hours to play Normal Community West on its home field in a Class 2A supersectional. Unfortunately for the Indians, this time around provided a different result. Despite having more of the quality scoring chances, Lemont departed central Illinois with a 2-0 loss that denied the team back-to-back trips to the state semifinals. “Going down there, which is a two hour drive for us, is challenging,” Lemont coach Rick Prangen said. “Playing down there is not the easiest thing to do. It’s not the reason we lost, but it didn’t make our job any easier. I’d really appreciate a neutral site to play, but that was not something that was given to us so we just have to do better.” Normal scored on a counterattack in the first half and added a penalty kick goal as insurance after the intermission. “Both of their goals came against the run of play,” Prangen said. “We missed some chances that we usually finish and they finished their chances. It was a little disappointing because I thought we were the better side.” The loss brought an end to the outstanding prep careers

of midfielder Kim Jerantowski and goalie Kelly Fritz, fouryear varsity starters and future Division I players. “You look at their record, three supersectionals, two trips to the [state semifinals],” the coach said. “Pretty close to 80 wins in their prep careers or maybe more. They helped carry on the tradition of our program and certainly added to it. They are two very special players and they’ve put us in a position that hopefully future generations can live up to.” Jerantowski will continue her career at Northwestern while Fritz will be part of the inaugural women’s team at UIC. “Kim as a field player is the best I’ve ever had and one of the best players I’ve seen play this game. Very rarely do players carry a team as much as she did,” Prangen said. “And Kelly is one of the best leaders I’ve ever had. She was the heart and soul of the team and a good goalie on top of that.” The Indians lose eight seniors in all, four of whom were starters, but should field another strong team in 2015, which will be bolstered by a strong freshman class that includes Jerantowski’s younger sister. “Some will depend on what girls come back healthy,” Prangen said, “but we are probably looking at having at least five to seven starters coming back. Lemont finished with a 23-2 record.

4) Draw with chalk You can play games like hopscotch. You can send secret, coded messages to your neighbors. You can practice your drawing and art skills. Or, you can simply write your name. However you choose to use it, sidewalk chalk is a good way to graiti your driveway and not have it be permanent.

OK, don’t climb a really big tree that will scare your neighbors when they see you up there, but climb one that looks relatively safe and check with your parents before you scamper up there. Or go climb the monkey bars at the park instead!

2) Go swimming

My summer favori tes

What better way to cool of from the scorching summer sun than a quick dip in the pool? Go to a public pool, beach or park with a lifeguard, and jump on in! If you don’t know how to swim, sign up for lessons with your local park district – and don’t forget the sunscreen.

There are many ways to have fun in the great outdoors this summer, and they don’t all have to be organized sports. Sure, it’s fun to play a game of soccer or baseball with your friends, but if you don’t have enough people to ield a team, don’t let it stop you from enjoying the summer sunshine and fresh air. Here are ive classic ways to get outdoors this summer.


Get moving!

If you don’t have a playground nearby, don’t fret – just use your imagination. Get an adult to help you attach an old tire to a sturdy tree branch with a rope and make a swing. Or recycle some wood to build a treehouse. Whatever it is, be safe while you’re doing these kinds of projects, and let the sky be the limit.

Saving on service Locations can be quick to offer discounted services to capitalize on valueseekers. How can a consumer be sure he or she is getting a quality motor oil and filter as part of the deal? “I can’t stress how important it is to be ‘in the know’ when it comes to motor oil changes and to understand that there is a big difference between a value and just a cheaper deal,” says automotive expert Lauren Fix, the “Car Coach.” Motor Oil Matters (MOM) and Fix recommend consumers arm themselves to help make informed decisions about motor oil: ! The bottom line: Follow the oil change recommendations in the vehicle’s owner’s manual. Pay close attention to the oil life monitor if a vehicle has it. When the monitor says it’s time for a change, it’s time. ! Your service provider should be happy to supply you with the brand, viscosity grade and performance level of the oil they use before it is poured into your vehicle. Drive away from locations that don’t know or won’t confirm in writing what they’re pouring into your vehicle. ! Any motor oil poured into a vehicle should meet the level of performance recommended by the vehicle manufacturer in the owner’s manual.

Lincoln and Cadillac designer one and the same Q: I worked for an Oldsmobile dealer in the early 1950s and graduated from General Motors Institute in Flint, Mich. I had a Bachelor of Science Mechanical Engineering degree from Syracuse University, but liked working with autos. I later joined General Electric to finish out a 35-year career with them. I have a suggestion for another article for you. I assume that you are aware of Henry Leland, as he designed and built the first Cadillacs. General Motors then picked the make up, probably by Billy Durant, and is still producing them. Henry Leland left GM and designed a new car and manufactured it for a few years. That was the Lincoln. His company went bust again and Ford Motor Co. picked it up and it was put under the direction of Edsel Ford. They, too, are still being produced. It is amazing that the same man designed both luxury competing cars. I doubt if very many people know this including the respective make dealers. I enjoy studying the history of the automobile and the timely developments. – George Dieffenbacher, email from New York A: George, thank you very much. Yes, I’ve heard of Leland, as he was one of the original and best designers and engineers of his era. He was born in 1843 and passed on in 1932. Leland’s original Cadillac brand was indeed pur-

The first Lincoln and the first Cadillac were designed by the same man, Harry Leland. ARTWORK COMPLIMENTS OF GM AND FORD


chased by General Motors in 1909 for a reported $5.5 million. However, it was GM boss Alfred P. Sloan who oversaw the purchase. As for William “Billy” Durant, he indeed did have much to do with Leland’s future. After a disagreement between Leland and Durant over Cadillac not producing war engines for WWI

as requested by the government, Leland actually lost his position. Being that Durant was against any type of war and a strict pacifist, Leland quit his job at GM to pursue building those aircraft engines. Leland quickly formed his new company with his son Wilfred in 1917. As you mention in your letter, the new company was called Lincoln and named after Leland’s hero, President Lincoln. After acquiring a $10 million loan to build the engines, Leland and Lincoln’s original cash flow came from assembling the V-12 Liberty aircraft engines GM refused to build

and used Henry Ford’s engine cylinders to do so. Following the war, Leland re-tooled his aircraft engine factory to manufacture the luxury car we know today, the Lincoln in late 1919 and early 1920. After running into money woes, Ford purchased the now insolvent Lincoln Motor Company in 1922. On June 10, 1922, Ford’s Ernest Liebold arrived at Lincoln to ask for the resignation of Leland’s son, Wilfred. When it became clear that Liebold had the backing of Henry Ford, Henry Leland resigned as well. In 1923, Edsel Ford took over the marquee. Today, the Lincoln is still

one of the world’s most respected luxury brands, and I’m glad you guided us down memory lane. In ending, the modernday Chrysler PT Cruiser and Chevy HHR (High Heritage Roof ) were designed by the same artist. namely Bryan Nesbitt, who still works for GM. But that’s another day.
