Forever Yogurt to open new location in La Grange By MATTHEW HENDRICKSON mhendrickson@shawmedia.com LA GRANGE – Just behind the colorful window display that masks the inside of Forever Yogurt, 71 S. La Grange Road, lies an equally colorful interior. The wallpaper inside La Grange’s newest business catering to frozen yogurt fans leaves no question as to what town your in. The colorful

walls show a mural of downtown La Grange, including icons such as the La Grange Theatre, Village Hall and the La Grange Road train station. Pink sparkled tiles direct those in the mood for a frozen treat to a series of 10 self-serve yogurt machines, providing 30 unique flavors, 20 flavor combinations and 10 swirled flavors, according to the shop’s owners, Sam and Samar Sheth.

The two cousins are already the owners of a Forever Yogurt location in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood. When they decided to try opening a suburban location, the pair thought La Grange would be the perfect fit. “La Grange is a great town with a family oriented community and a younger crowd,” Sam Sheth said on a recent day at the shop. Crews inside were still

LA GRANGE – Cousins and business partners Sam and Samar Sheth said they are used to competition in an urban setting where multiple business all offer a similar product. In Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood, where they opened their first Forever Yogurt location, plenty of other shops selling cold, creamy “froyo” are nearby. However, none are quite as close as their nearest competitor in La Grange – Red Mango, located just two doors down. The closeness of the two shops is leading some to wonder whether a yogurt war is underway in La Grange. However, neither business believes the streets will run with melted red velvet cake – there’s room for two, both owners said. “We don’t see it as bad competition,” Forever Yogurt owner Samar Sheth said. “We see it as giving people a choice – they have options.” Red Mango, 81 S. La Grange Road, opened in June 2011 to massive success in the village, the owners said and they think their store will continue that success, despite their nearby neighbors. “We were the No. 2 Red Mango in the nation just 3 months after opening,” owner Trisha Fendt said. Fendt said the success of Red Mango in La Grange has likely brought the increased

Learn about boosting early literacy skills at your local library Before children can learn to read, they must acquire a range of skills that will help them decode printed words. These are called “early literacy skills,” which means proficiency in talking, singing, reading, writing and playing, which in turn prepares a child to read. Happily, all these activCOMMUNITY ities can easily be done at VOICE home, in the car or anywhere Uma you and a child spend time together. Nori The staff at the Thomas Ford Memorial Library believes interactions between adults and children have a great impact on the development of early literacy skills. Our story times for babies, toddlers and preschoolers are specifically designed to focus on early literacy skills. Introducing new words through an exciting picture book is a great way to build a child’s vocabulary. Asking questions about a book’s plot or characters develops language skills. Using puppets to act out parts of a story or in conjunction with a rhyme naturally leads into singing and laughing. When learning is fun it is something children want to do and it is long lasting! The smile on a child’s face and a request for “More” is instant feedback that tells us we are on the right track. Additionally, the Youth Services Department at Thomas Ford Memorial Library has created activity centers to help develop early literacy skills. For example, the Play Station (which includes a dollhouse with dolls and furniture) provides opportunities for children to use their creativity to make up stories and act them out. At the Talk and Sing Station, children may sing, recite a rhyme, dance on the stage or put on a small show. The department even has a replica of the Water Tower that doubles as a stage for puppet shows. Parents, grandparents and caregivers are a child’s first and best teachers. Reading with children continues to be one of the most powerful ways to develop early literacy skills. Please stop by the desk in Youth Services to ask for suggestions about incorporating early literacy skill activities into the lives of your family or for the titles of books and games that offer great opportunities for learning fun. It is our pleasure to provide the resources and space that promote and help children get ready to read.

Uma Nori is the head of Youth Services at the Thomas Ford Memorial Library.

A thumbs up to Imperial Oak Brewery, coming soon to Willow Springs. We’re excited to see so many entrepreneurs in the area trying their hand at brewing and distilling. We hope to see spots like Imperial Oak, BuckleDown (Lyons) and Quincy Street Distillery (Riverside) become destinations that will draw visitors from the city and the surrounding areas into these communities. A thumbs up to Brian Waterman for sitting down with us and talking about his future as principal at Lyons Township High School. In July, Waterman will replace the retiring Dave Franson as principal for the 2014-15 school year. We wish him good luck in his new position and are excited to see him bring his ideas to LT.

No applause for parking garages I shop downtown Elmhurst only when I can find on-street parking. I do not like nor do I feel safe in parking garages. I don’t care how many parking garages Elmhurst builds, I will only shop downtown Elmhurst when I can secure ground-level, open parking. Perhaps Elmhurst should consider tearing down a vacated building such as Plass Appliance to provide more onstreet parking. I am sure the city is worried about loss of revenue from the torn-down building. However, wouldn’t increased foot traffic to existing stores help prevent more stores from closing in downtown Elmhurst and also entice new stores?

Keep tradition with Party at Kiwanis Park What is Brookfield thinking about switching the Party in the Park to JC/Ehlert Park? They should just cancel the Party in the Park this year for the Fourth of July because Kiwanis Park is under construction, and who would want to go all the way to JC/Ehlert Park for the Party in the Park? It has always been a tradition to have Party in the Park at Kiwanis Park. To have it at JC/Ehlert Park is not the tradition. I think the tradition should be canceled this year and save the money and have it for next Fourth of July.

do not have common sense anymore. I argued with the board to get one-sided street parking for the 9300 to 9500 blocks of Jefferson Avenue in Brookfield since the street is narrow. They turned it down four times. So, I agree with you. The Village Board will learn after something happens.

Friends should help friends stop smoking This message is to all nonsmokers and people who have quit but have friends that still smoke. Please help them stop smoking. My husband promised me 20 years ago he would stop smoking and he hasn’t. His friends do nothing to help him stop smoking. I’m at my wits’ end. If you guys are such good good friends, then you help your friends quit smoking. I’m tired of being the one who nags and is so angry with him that he doesn’t quit smoking. If your friends smoke, start 2014 by helping your friends stop. Don’t leave it to your spouses to be the nagging one. Please help my husband stop smoking.

Kudos to snowplowing crews I’ve been a Bloomingdale Township resident for more than 30 years, and the Township Highway Department has done an excellent job with my road in the unincorporated area I live in. Every time I look out the window, I see a snowplow going by. I had a doctor appointment the next day after the big storm. I could tell when I drove through the township that the roads were in great condition. My wife and I felt safe. Thank you to the snowplowing crew of Bloomingdale Township Highway Department. Job well done.

I just wanted to say thank you to the wonderful angel who stopped by to help me round up my garbage cans. It was very windy when I got home from work and the garbage cans were blown into the street and down a couple blocks away. She stopped her van and got out and helped me and trudged through the snow to capture my lids. I really appreciate it. Thank you so much.

Republican candidates talk politics in Riverside Brady, Rauner, Rutherford present governor platforms By MATTHEW HENDRICKSON mhendrickson@shawmedia.com RIVERSIDE – Pensions. Debt. Term limits. These were the buzz words at a Candidates Night event hosted by the Riverside Township Regular Republican Organization at Riverside Township Hall on Thursday night. Moderated by Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka – who also was celebrating her birthday and endured two rounds of singing – the event gave

$ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $

Republican candidates five minutes to present their platform and connect with voters, before allowing two questions each from the public. Speakers at the event included gubernatorial candidates state Sen. Bill Brady, Bruce Rauner and Treasurer Dan Rutherford; candidates for lieutenant governor, Evelyn Sanguinetti and state Rep. Jil Tracy; candidate for attorney general, Paul Schimpf; candidate for secretary of state, Michael Webster;

candidate for treasurer, Tom Cross; and Cook County Commissioner Liz Gorman. Brady was the first to speak at the event and thanked attendees for their support in his previous attempts to win the governor’s seat. Brady focused on Illinois’ “leadership problems” in his five minutes on the floor and called for the elimination of state income taxes and the Illinois Board of Education. He told attendees he was their best chance in the Republican race.

Brady was followed by Bruce Rauner who thanked attendees for their patriotism and support of Republicans. His goal, he said, was to get Gov. Pat Quinn out of office. “This is out year,” Rauner told the crowd of about 30 residents from Riverside and the surrounding area. Rauner said his experience in business and his work overseeing retirement investments made him the best candidate for Republicans. Although he’s not a politician, Rauner said he has worked in politics for a long time, including working with Chicago mayors on education reform. Rutherford was the final gubernatorial candidate to address the crowd Thursday evening. “This isn’t my first rodeo,” Rutherford said and added he was the only candidate to have won a statewide race. “You have to be a unique, reasonable Republican to win [in Illinois].” Rutherford spoke about his ability to win in a race against Quinn, citing a poll that showed him winning by two points. “We have to be very serious about who we select as our nominee,” he warned. Rutherford largely focused on bringing spending in line in Illinois and balancing the

state’s budget as the keys to making Illinois competitive again. All the candidates for governor touched on term limits – mostly directed at getting rid of Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan. All three said they supported term limits as a way to get rid of clout and corruption in Illinois. Tracy, candidate for lieutenant governor running with Dillard, told the crowd Republicans had a difficult task of putting together the “best team” to beat Quinn in the upcoming election. Tracy presented herself as a “downstate girl” who could help Dillard – a collar county Republican – win against Quinn in the election. Tracy called herself a job creator, who knew how to bring jobs back to Illinois. Likewise, Sanguinetti, focused her remarks on her humble roots as the daughter of immigrant parents and her early years when “money was tight and things were never easy.” Although she said she was a product of the “safety net,” she told the crowd that people in Illinois were not looking for handouts, but for jobs. Running with Rauner, Sanguinetti said he appealed to her because he was not a career politician.

National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2014 is January 26 to February 1. Schools typically observe National Catholic Schools Week with Masses, open house and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.

Catholic schools have a long-standing commitment to academic excellence that is rooted in the faith- based mission of Catholic education. The Common Core State Standards in no way compromise the Catholic identity or educational program of a Catholic school. The Common Core State Standards initiative, begun in 2007, is a state-led, bipartisan effort that is not a requirement for participation in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) or any other federally- funded program, and there are no mandates for any Catholic school to follow any federal rules if they adopt the Common Core. Adoption of the Common Core is voluntary; individual states, Catholic dioceses and other private schools make their own decisions about whether to adopt the standards. The Common Core State Standards are a set of high-quality academic expectations that all students should master by the end of each grade level. The standards establish consistent learning goals for all students that focus on preparing them to succeed in college and careers in a globally competitive workplace. The standards define and clearly communicate grade-specific goals and inform parents about learning outcomes, making it easier for parents to collaborate with teachers in helping their children achieve success. The Common Core State Standards are not a curriculum. A curriculum includes what is taught, when it is taught, how it is taught and what materials to use. None of these items are included in the Common Core State Standards. For Catholic schools, all of these elements will continue to be determined by diocesan superintendents, principals and teachers working to meet the needs of their students. The Common Core represents a fundamental shift in the teaching and learning process. The Common Core establishes clear, measurable goals for students that assist teachers in making instructional decisions. The standards place emphasis on creativity, critical and analytical thinking and application to curriculum content. The Common Core is not a national curriculum. It guides the way that instruction takes place in each classroom, allowing the Catholic school to develop its own curriculum content. An excellent Catholic school provides a rigorous academic curriculum that integrates faith and knowledge. As trained professionals, Catholic school administrators and teachers continually seek the best instructional methods for educating students. In the past, dioceses and schools have developed their own standards or adapted state standards for use with their own curriculum. Some will continue to do this. To assist those incorporating the new standards, the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) and partners in Catholic education established the Common Core Catholic Identity Initiative (CCCII). CCCII provides resources to design and direct the implementation of Common Core within the culture and context of a Catholic school curriculum. Thus Catholic schools can infuse the standards with the faith, principles, values and social justice themes inherent in the mission of a Catholic school. NCEA, the largest private professional education organization in the world, provides leadership, direction and service to its members through a variety of professional development activities that support whatever teaching and learning activities the individual school chooses implement. NCEA Position Statement on the Common Core State Standards May 31, 2013


A Dozen Ways to Get the Most Out of National Catholic Schools Week

1. Make it special. Plan the types of events that are the most meaningful to your school community and that celebrate your history and traditions.

Divine Providence Catholic School Join us for an Open House and Registration Event on Sunday, January 26th from 10:30a.m. to 12:30p.m. 

2. But don’t try to do too much. Focus on a few well-organized activities that everyone can enjoy. Recognize what you can do with the resources and budget you have.

4. Pray together. The opportunity to share faith every day is a gift of Catholic education. 5. Serve together. Catholic Schools Week is a good time to highlight the school’s ongoing commitment to service or launch a new service initiative.

6. Learn something together. Break out from the usual subjects to try something new, a good way to instill a lifelong love of learning. 7. Play together. Set aside some time just for fun. 8. Center on students. Remind them to reflect on the value of their Catholic education.

Visit DivineProvidenceSchool.org for more information or call 708-562-2258 2500 Mayfair Ave. Westchester

9. Recognize teachers. Acknowledge the tremendous difference their service makes in the school’s ability to offer high-quality, faith-filled education. 10. Involve families. Schools and families count on each other to reinforce shared values. Thank families for choosing your school and supporting your efforts to educate their children. 11. Single out supporters. Show your appreciation for members of the parish and the community who make your school stronger through their volunteer efforts and support. 12. Extend the feeling throughout the school year. Catholic Schools Week is not the only time to recognize what makes Catholic education special. Instill that feeling in your school community every day.

Restaurant reviews

Hokkaido turns cuisine into performance art OAKBROOK TERRACE – As we walked into Hokkaido Sushi Hibachi Steak House & Lounge, I was struck by the beauty of a mural that appeared 3D. Inside the restaurant that bears the name of Japan’s second largest island, we instantly were greeted by a hostess who asked whether we preferred to sit at the bar or hibachi. Feeling adventurous, we said yes to the hibachi, which Hokkaido’s website terms a smokeless cooking station. As she led us through the restaurant, I noticed we were walking on a clear glass floor with fish swimming underneath – a delight for any age (it reminded me of a family trip to Silver Springs, Fla., where we floated in glass-bottom boats). The decor is a deft blend of traditional and modern designs, including Oriental illustrations and motifs with an array of colorful lighting. In a separate room were four tables with family-style seating and two hibachi grills each. We were seated with a grandmother and her granddaughter from Glen Ellyn. I ordered the hibachi combination of Hokkaido chicken and shrimp, while my companion chose a sirloin steak and chicken combo. Hokkaido offers different styles of preparation, such as three ways to prepare your shrimp: golden (with egg), hibachi (lightly seasoned) or garlic. Among side dishes are chicken soup, salad, mixed green vegetables and steamed rice. The hibachi experience is as much a performance as a meal, with the chef twirling his metal spatula and tapping out sound effects on seasoning containers and the grill. Each ingredient becomes a character in the play, with the chef acting as narrator and band. I opted to substitute chicken soup for miso soup as overture. Made with kelp, bits of tofu and green onion, it was

Lyons Township’s Sam Cybulski goes up for a shot during Friday’s game at Hinsdale Central. Down double digits in the fourth quarter, the Lions battled back, but lost 48-45.

LT adjusts to life without Hester By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com HINSDALE – Chris Hester and Lyons Townships’s boys basketball team were dealt a blow last week. An MRI revealed Hester tore a knee ligament during play at York’s Jack Tosh Holiday Tournament. The injury will keep the senior sidelined for the rest of the season and takes away one of the Lions’ top scorers and rebounders. “We knew he was hurt and that he was out, but we didn’t know until [last] week that he was out for the year,” LT head

Hinsdale Central 48 Lyons Township 45 LT LEADING SCORERS • Jim Cullen: 17 points • Harrison Niego: 16 points • Jaquan Phipps: Six points

coach Tom Sloan said. But playing at West Suburban Silver rival Hinsdale Central Friday, the Lions didn’t look like a team missing one of their best players. LT lost 48-45, but battled back from a double digit deficit early in

the fourth quarter to make it a one-possession game. “You suck it up and play hard like the guys did [Friday],” Sloan said of life without Hester. “If you had not seen us play this year and you walked into the gym, I don’t think you’d have an idea that one of our best players wasn’t here. Our kids love Chris, but they’re not going to let that impact their effort on the floor.” Jim Cullen helped LT (10-6 overall, 3-2 WSS) get the game started on the right foot. The senior started the game with a baseline jumper, tallied a

pair of 3-pointers and capped the scoring in the first quarter with a steal and layup to give the Lions a 14-5 lead. A trey just before the halftime buzzer gave Central a 21-20 lead at intermission. The Red Devils pushed the lead to 39-28 with 5:13 left in the fourth quarter, but the Lions chipped away. A Cullen 3-pointer followed by a Harrison Niego free throw to made it 44-43 with 40.6 seconds to go. Jaquan Phipps’ putback sliced LT’s deficit to 47-45 with under 10 seconds to go, but Central’s Chase Hamilton knocked down a free throw

and LT’s last-second heave missed the mark. Phipps has seen an increased role since Hester’s injury and started Friday’s game. He finished with six points, but Sloan said he believes Phipps and the rest of his squad will quickly adjust with Hester out of the lineup. “Different guys are playing in different spots, different roles and a different amount of playing time,” Sloan said. “Jaquan [Phipps] was basically doing what he did tonight for a week, and he’s only going to get better at it.”

Tough tourneys key to wrestling success By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com Tournaments are a staple of wrestling team’s schedules. The wrestlers compete in multiple matches per day, sometimes over the course of two days, and dozens of schools flock to host sites in search of matches, tough competition and match experience. But why do they all do it? “The tournaments are always good because even if you’re in a 16-team tournament, if you’re the top guy you’re still going to wrestle

four times if you don’t get a bye in the first round,” Morton coach Steve Eckert said. The ability to see different teams and face multiple opponents in a short time period is something that no dual meet or practice can replicate. Also, they help wrestlers get used to the tournament format that they will see at regionals and sectionals. It’s not just the physical side of wrestling multiple times in a day with little time to prepare for a specific opponent that is beneficial. Wrestlers are allowed up to five matches in a day, but the men-

Riverside Brookfield’s Zach Colvin wrestles Saturday at 170 pounds at Lisle’s Steve Melichar Invite. Colvin and the Bulldogs will have a tough tournament test at Oak Park-River Forest this weekend. tal strain of staying prepared throughout the day is another test on the grapplers. “Sometimes it’s more the mental part of it because you’re there all day and you may not wrestle for an hour and a half,” Eckert said. “That’s what you got to do so that when regionals, sectionals and state comes you’re prepared for that. In duals, you wrestle one time and you’re done.” One of the biggest tournaments in the area is Saturday at Oak Park-River Forest, the Huskie Varsity Invitational. Lyons Township, Morton and Riverside Brookfield will all be there facing competition

that not only comes from the Chicago area but from all over the Midwest. RB hadn’t competed in the tournament until this year. First-year coach Mike Boyd came to RB after being an assistant at OPRF and is trying to bring the philosophies of that successful program to the Bulldogs’ program. It will be a major test for all three schools, but LT is used to facing tough competition. The Lions have a very tough tournament schedule that has already included Barrington’s 23-team Moore/ Prettyman Wrestling Invitational on Nov. 29 and 30 and Palatine’s 32-team Berman

Holiday Wrestling Classic on Dec. 27 and 28. Eckert prefers to ease his Mustangs into the season before jumping into the deep end of high-level tournaments. “For me, I like the progression of tournaments for us,” Eckert said. “At the beginning we try to get tournaments that all of our guys can get some kind of success. It does no good to bring all your guys to a tournament and only one or two guys can do anything. For me, personally, especially early in the season, I like to find a tourney that all my guys can get some wins and some confidence and they get harder as they go.”

Several area wrestlers begin to pull away from the pack SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA With the wrestling state tournament series just around the corner, the favorites for postseason success from the area have emerged. Here’s a list of some of the top wrestlers from local schools.

High school hockey teams prep for playoff runs By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com The high school hockey season has been going since late September, and the postseason will begin in late February, continue through March and culminate in the Illinois State High School Hockey Championships Tournament finals March 20. Here’s a look at how some of the local boys hockey teams have done so far this season.

Lyons Township Division: IHSHL West Coach: Ricky Reznick Season update: The Lions are 5-16-0-3 in the IHSHL West with just two games left in the regular season. Senior

forward Hugh Meehan leads the team with 16 goals and nine assists in league games. Randall Funk (five goals, eight assists) and Hunter Wilkinson (six goals, five assists) also have double digit points in the league play. Sophomore Jacob Conger has shown some potential by scoring six goals in 22 league games, which is tied for second best on the team. Seniors Alexander Hernandez and Paolo Delfini have shared time in goal. While LT is right behind rival Hinsdale Central in the standings, the Red Devils beat the Lions 8-4 in the teams’ Winter Classic at Cicero’s Bobby Hull Community Ice Rink on Dec. 20.

Fenwick Division: Chicago Catholic Hockey League Coach: Tim Bossy Season update: The Friars have had one of the premier programs in the state for years and play a tough schedule. The Chicago Catholic Hockey League provides top competition, and the Friars have also played tournaments against other top teams from the state, including defending state champion New Trier, Stevenson and Glenbrook North. This season, Fenwick has been up and down. As of Jan. 17 the Friars are 9-6-0-1 in the CCHL, sitting squarely in the middle of the 10-team league. Ben Kohen is the team’s leading scorer despite missing

some time with a shoulder injury. He has 12 goals and 14 assists in CCHL games to rank in the top 10 in the league. Mackenzie Sinnott (eight goals, 11 assists) and Michael Doherty (seven goals, nine assists) have also been among the team’s leaders offensively. Barker Paul and Jonathan Paunove have split most of the time between the pipes.

Nazareth/RB/Guerin/IC Division: IHSHL Suburban Coach: Derek Gordon Season update: The combined team, which features players from Nazareth, Guerin, Riverside Brookfield and IC Catholic, is 6-6 in the Suburban Division of the IHSHL. This is the third season RB

has joined the team, and it has allowed the program to field both varsity and JV teams. Four players from the team recently competed in the conference’s all-star game: Pat Boniecki and Blake Gordon from Nazareth, Grant Hennessy from IC and Matthew Gale from Guerin. Goaltender Dominik Slezak and RB’s Michael Helf have also been key contributors. The team has endured a number of one-goal games in league play, making for competitive play. “It’s been a pleasure to watch, and it’s been quite a chore coaching the games,” coach Derek Gordon said with a laugh. “There’s constantly intense games and it’s fun.”

Will the draft fit Chicago Bears’ needs? With the week off before the Super Bowl, all eyes are on the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, – yeah, sure – the East-West Shrine Game and the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., this weekend, it’s time to begin to focus on this year’s NFL College Draft. Specifically, will the best talent available at the time the Bears select in each round of the draft fit the Bears’ needs? Here is a given. Teams that skip the best players available when it’s their turn to draft to take a lesser prospect to fill an area of need fail to become good football teams. Phil Emery and Marc Trestman committed at their season-ending press conference to get younger on defense. That happens by drafting well. Lance Briggs and Tim Jennings will be back, and Zack Bowman and Kelvin Hayden will be economical options to resign as well. We can also assume the Bears plan to continue to try and develop Jonathan Bostic and Khaseem Greene, and it seems likely Shea

Hub Arkush

McClellin may end up spending some time at linebacker, too. So the Bears get younger on defense by drafting defensive linemen and safeties. Offensively, the Bears are in the best shape they’ve been in decades but need depth at running back and tight end. That may wait, but the development of a young quarterback shouldn’t. I have no idea if the prospects I’m about to introduce you to interest the Bears or not, but I think the next few months of scouting will prove they should. Two prospects who might fit with Marc Trestman and, if the Bears get very lucky, could be available in the fourth round but should be in the third are A.J. McCarron of Alabama and Jim-

Masterbrand Cabinetry

my Garoppolo of Eastern Illinois. McCarron reminds me of a full-sized Russell Wilson, and Garoppolo stole the show at the Shrine Game and is about to become this year’s fast riser at the Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine. This is not a good year to need a true pass-rushing defensive end with the 14th pick in the first round. Only a truly dramatic and expensive move will get the Bears in position for Jadeveon Clowney of South Carolina, and that’s not going to happen. Get to know Kony Ealy of Missouri. At 6’ 5”, 275 pounds, he is an accomplished, NFL-ready pass rusher who will probably be taken several picks in front of the Bears. If he’s not...Kareem Martin out of North Carolina could be an interesting option if he’s still available in the third or fourth round. Defensive tackle will be one of the deepest positions in the draft, but will the Bears be sticking with Lovie Smith’s base Tampa Two, which requires a three-technique, or will they

be shopping for larger, space-eating two gap players. The best three technique prospect is Timmy Jernigan of Florida State, but he’s no where near good enough to merit a pick higher than 20-to-25. Notre Dame’s Louis Nix is the best defensive tackle in the draft and will almost certainly be a top 10 pick, maybe top five. His teammate, Stephon Tuitt and Minnesota’s Ra’Shede Hageman are the next best prospects and could fit at 14, but at 6’6”, 310 to 315 pounds each, both are best suited to be five technique ends in a 3 – 4 scheme. At safety, Alabama’s Hasean Clinton-Dix is the prize of the draft and could just be a fit with the Bears at 14. Second, third and fourth round options are Deone Bucannon of Washington State, Louisville’s Calvin Pryor and Jimmie Ward of Northern Illinois. There are a ton of 40-yard dashes and agility drills to run between now and the draft, but these are a few of the young men worth keeping an eye on.

passing game. Rolling Meadows product and Eastern Illinois alumnus Jimmy Garoppolo shined at the East-West Shrine game and got a late invite to go to Mobile. This will be a stiffer test for Garoppolo to prove he has the arm strength, accuracy and moxie to be an NFL quarterback. Other local college prospects in Mobile are Northwestern’s Kain Colter, who will play wide receiver, and Illinois linebacker Jonathan Brown. Now, from a Bears perspective … Unfortunately, general manager Phil Emery and coach Marc Trestman will not be available to talk to the media, so any questions about defensive coordinator Mel

Tucker and the defense will have to wait until the NFL Scouting Combine. Emery made it clear this draft will be defense-heavy. With potentially two starting safety positions to fill, the Bears will be looking for athletes who can come up and stop the run, cover tight ends and be a ball-hawking center fielder. Terrence Brooks (Florida State), Deone Bucannon (Washington State) and Ahmad Dixon (Baylor) are expected to be some of the top players in the back end in Mobile. The Bears’ Henry Melton, Nate Collins and Jeremiah Ratliff are set to hit free agency, so watch the defensive tackle position. Top prospects Aaron Donald (Pittsburgh), DaQuan Jones

(Penn State) and Will Sutton (Arizona State) will be at the Senior Bowl. The ability for a D-tackle to penetrate, maybe more so than plug the run gap, is important for the Bears’ defense. Of course, defensive end, linebacker and cornerback are all fair game, too, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see the Bears take a late-round quarterback. Plus, the QBs always steal the show in Mobile. Yes, the Senior Bowl is just one piece to the puzzle, but keep in mind what last year’s first-round pick, Kyle Long, tweeted Saturday morning: “It’s crazy Senior Bowl is right around the corner, had I not been invited to that I wouldn’t be a Bear most likely!”

he moon is a big, round wonder in our night sky that is constantly changing, moving from a fat sphere to a tiny sliver of a crescent. But while it looks to us like the moon is changing shape, what we’re actually seeing is the light that is relected on the moon from the sun. The moon takes one month to orbit the Earth, and while it is moving, we can look up into the sky and tell where it is in its orbit by the shape it presents, whether crescent, half or full. The moon is often spoken of in terms of waxing and waning. Waxing means the light on the moon appears to be getting larger, and waning means the light is getting smaller.
