After Tuesday, temperatures will look to moderate in comparison to the arctic blast. “Temperatures could be back into the teens and 20s on Wednesday, which will feel like a heat wave, and then by Thursday they could be in the upper 20s to around 30 degrees,” said Richard Castro, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Romeoville. After that though, Castro said there’s potential for more snow, but that the system is “way out there.” Beyond next week, Castro said it looks like temperatures could be moderate.

12-hour shifts to plow the village’s main roads, while supplemental drivers – like McLaughlin or a fire department employee – helped plow residential streets. “It was long in duration,” McLaughlin said of the storm. “There were no spells where we couldn’t keep up with it. Some storms you can’t keep up with. This one was just slow and steady.” McLaughlin said trucks put down extra salt Jan. 3 – after the snow had stopped – to take advantage of the sunshine to help soak up some of the snow. It was also a way to prepare for the impending freeze that was set to hit the area. “We try to make sure we get them as good as shape as we can before this freezing cold because when it gets cold our salt doesn’t do anything,” he said.

An inch Dec. 30, 3 inches New Year’s Eve, 3.9 more New Year’s Day and 8 inches Jan. 2. had public works crews working around the clock to clear snow and slush from the village’s main roads and parking lots. Another 4 inches of snow fell over Saturday and Sunday, driving crews back out into the cold. Monday, temperatures plunged to 16 below zero in the Chicago region, with a wind chill of 40 below zero. Schools across the area canceled classes citing the extreme weather conditions. School was canceled again Tuesday. While temperatures were supposed to be above zero, a frigid wind chill of 30 below zero caused schools to close classes for a second day. “We’re doing fine,” La Grange Public Works Director Ryan Gillingham said Jan. 3. “We’ve been working quite a bit since it first started snowing New Year’s Eve. We’ve been working continuously. As the snow kept falling we stayed pretty much to our routes throughout the village and then once the snow stopped we were able to shift our focus to [clearing parking lots].” Gillingham said the size of the storm forced his department to first focus on clear-

LA GRANGE PARK – April Marin hopes to celebrate her late son’s birthday with as many of his friends as possible, while also warning them about the dangers of heroin. Steven Marin, 20, died Oct. 10 last year at the Marin’s La Grange Park home of a suspected heroin overdose. April Marin had known her son smoked marijuana, but never suspected heroin. She thinks he was trying it for the first time and used too much. Since, April Marin has become involved in several awareness campaigns on the dangers of heroin, an extremely addictive drug that is cheaper, more pure and more available than ever. Chicago is said to be the country’s current hotbed for heroin activity, which has for several years included the suburbs. On Jan. 24, Steven Marin would have turned 21. Hoping his friends continue to celebrate his birthdays, April

Marin is organizing a night of music, food and beverages to honor her son. The event, High on Life, will feature music from groups whose members include friends of Steven Marin, along with donated food and beverages and the chance to discuss the dangers of heroin. “It’s for anybody who knew Steven, who wants to learn more about the cause,” April Marin said. “It’s not just for the kids. The parents need to hear about what’s out there.” April Marin has been planning the event with the help of two of her son’s friends, Tim Geroulis and Nick Demeria. Geroulis will deejay during the event, while Demeria, a rapper, will incorporate beats Steven Marin had composed into his performance. “These kids are so enthusiastic about this and so happy to be doing this,” April Marin said. “It’s making my heart happy. They come in [to plan the event], they’re hugging me and smiling. I just can’t say how impressed I am with their

I flunked ‘shushing’ in library school I flunked “shushing” in library school. Honestly, I stink at it. When it comes right down to it, I hate quashing a kid’s natural exuberance. Kids are the greatest – even the ones I throw out of the library. Once, I was throwing a kid out for making too much noise, and when I threatened to call her mother, she sat down and wrote out her last will and testament to show me. How funny is that? I had a terrible time keeping a straight face. I’ve tried to explain why we keep it quiet in the library COMMUNITY in this way: If I went to a basVOICE ketball court and set up all Julie my books and papers in the Yekel middle of the free throw line, I’d be disrupting play. That’s not what a basketball court is for. If you come to the library and want to have a snack and horse around with your friends, you’d be interfering with people trying to do homework or just trying to read. We are not your party place. But frankly, my sympathies are with the little offenders. After considerable effort and years of practice, I have more or less gotten the hang of “shushing.” I’m older and crankier, too, so sometimes I can silence a kid with just the old hairy eyeball. But I don’t ever expect to be really good at keeping the kid’s department quiet and orderly. I have too much enthusiasm for kids and their projects. I can’t help “ooing” and “aahing” when a kid shows me a new comic book character they’ve drawn, or a robotic mosquito they’ve designed, or a rough draft of a story they’ve written. A kid once came into the library with a fake dinosaur skeleton he’d created out of turkey and chicken bones. Sweet! You’ve got something interesting you’re working on, I’m right here for you. You need info, I’m all over it. You don’t know what you want to do. Have I got ideas for you. You want to learn something new. I’m your librarian. Yes, I can build a stellated icosahedron out of scrap paper. Yes, I can draw a hallucigenia, not to mention SpongeBob. Yes, I’m a Zen doodle master and the Spirograph queen. What’s more, I know what the mythical creature that’s half horse-half porpoise is called, and I know the name of the book series about the kid who visits a fantastic world down the air vent in his living room. That’s right, I’ve got a masters degree in information science. Ask me anything. Go ahead, ask me. I’m a human search engine. So come to our library, but behave yourself and don’t make me “shush” you!

Lyons Township High School grad and actress Gabrielle Walsh stars in “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones” released in theaters Jan. 3.

A thumbs up to Lyons Township High School grad Gabrielle Walsh. Walsh recently got the opportunity of a lifetime – she’s starring in the new horror film “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.” Walsh followed her dream, which led her from Indian Head Park to Hollywood, and shows that hard work and determination often pay off. Congratulations on your success, Gabrielle. A thumbs up to all who helped out when a local family needed it most. Students at Lyons Township High School recently raised nearly $5,000 to help a fellow classmate and her family after their home in Brookfield was destroyed by a fire in December. We love to see our community come together to support local causes. We hope the family is back on their feet soon.

Keep the open space What’s with the Glen Ellyn Park District’s plans for Ackerman Park? The Park District board has a potential $7 million outlay for the proposed improvement for the beautiful open space at Ackerman. I sure hope the park board realizes that sometimes less is more and doesn’t get carried away with making a monument to themselves – like the ground clock on Main Street in Glen Ellyn that took up several valuable parking spaces and is in constant need of repairs. Glen Ellyn Park Board members: Have mercy on the taxpayers who are still overburdened by the economy’s downturn by being fiscally responsible. Keep in mind many of us enjoy the natural beauty of our parks. There’s already enough manmade structures in the park already polluting the landscape. Do we really need an indoor pool to occupy park space?

James R Rakow Road

Two blocks north of Rakow on Pingree

The Lisle Main Street pedestrian tunnel underneath the Metra tracks has been in disrepair for many years. On Nov. 1, it was closed for repair. Not only is this a major inconvenience, it is a major safety issue. Who makes these decisions? Certainly not a commuter. Perhaps it was the same people who permanently closed off eastbound traffic on School Street at Main Street, which forces patrons searching for parking to exit the downtown area at Ogden Avenue and just keep going. Two months later, the tunnel is still closed and no one is there. What is the priority?

State of Illinois pension system. The information that was supplied was very spot on, succinct, honest and clear. I wish more people would submit info like this – the truth about the retirees’ huge pensions. We don’t all have such huge pensions. You’d be very surprised how small some pensions are after 20 years of service. Again, thanks for going through the trouble for the rest of us.

Public Works Department is doing a good job

Early Thursday morning, I noticed my mailbox post had been broken off at the base by a snow plow. I called the Lombard Public Works Department and left a message not knowing what, if anything, they would do. Even with all of the work going on I heard back from them within two hours. A very pleasant woman let me know that not only would the city replace my mailbox (probably in the spring) but that a temporary box would be put up within a day or two. Much to Thanks for letter my surprise, before the mailman This is a response to a letter arrived, a replacement box had that appeared in the Dec. 25 been installed and I never missed Suburban Life: I want to thank the a letter. Way to go Lombard writer who wrote regarding the Public Works Department.

Restaurant reviews

Glen Oak Restaurant unveils its new menu GLEN ELLYN – We made a happy discovery when we stepped inside Glen Oak Restaurant on a recent Sunday, finding ourselves hungry but not sure what we were in the mood for foodwise. Art posters dot the walls of the downtown Glen Ellyn eatery, whose high-ceilinged, airy space has lots of elbow room, with tables and comfortable booths. Dining there for the first time, we noticed the unusual touch of casters on the chairs for ease of motion. With expansive windows all around for views, we enjoyed watching the trains a block away. A friendly server brought over warm rolls, quickly followed by the French onion soup we’d ordered. It was an ideal antidote to a bitterly wintry day. A telltale clue that it was freshly homemade were the chunky onions and an errant bayleaf. My dining companion was pleased the soup wasn’t too salty, adding, “There’s a zesty bite to it.” For his main course, he opted for the Reuben sandwich. The tender corned beef was piled high on rye, with just the right proportion of sauerkraut and melted Swiss, and a crunchy dill pickle. The sandwich normally is served with Thousand Island dressing, but he changed it up with bleu cheese. The Reuben passed the test with flying colors. I focused on the breakfast menu, which is served all day. An avowed omelet fan, I wasn’t disappointed with a delicious blend of creamy cheese, grilled onions, spinach and ham. For a side, I chose hash browns, which arrived light, slightly crispy and ready to be seasoned to personal liking. My companion felt compelled to complete the homey diner experience with a slice of warm cherry pie a la mode for a sweet finish to an enjoyable meal. The restaurant begins the New Year with a change in

Its Facebook page states the shift reflects patrons’ preference to dine out for breakfast and lunch rather than dinner. The full bar service will continue. And late afternoon and evenings, the restaurant will be available for private events. We’re looking forward to trying other dishes next time around, knowing we won’t leave hungry. The ample leftovers we took home tasted great for lunch the next day. The new menu offers a wide array of breakfast

specialties including sweet or savory crepes, multiple Benedict variations and gluten-free pancakes, plus panini, burgers, wraps, salads, sandwiches and other fare. We learned Glen Oak has been around for three decades, and now we know why.

Gilbert’s on his game

Omarr Gilbert’s all-around game is a key for LT boys basketball this season

By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com LA GRANGE – Two years ago, Omarr Gilbert was at Walther Lutheran, a school with an enrollment just over 300. Currently, he is at Lyons Township with an enrollment of just under 4,000. The culture shock of heading to a school with more than 10 times the enrollment of his previous school was the biggest adjustment for Gilbert, a senior who is currently starting at guard for the LT boys basketball team. “I was ready, I knew it was going to be big, but it took a little to get adapted to,” Gilbert said. “It’s a different style of basketball. It’s a different environment.” Gilbert was on the varsity team last year, but saw only limited minutes. Whether or not his transfer impacted his playing time as a junior, Gilbert is a key player this year. He is in the starting lineup and sharing point guard duties with standout junior Harrison Niego. “He does everything the right way,” LT coach Tom Sloan said. “All he cares about is winning. He does whatever it takes to win, whether it’s on the defensive end or the offensive end. He moves the ball from guard to guard or side to side and finds the right guys. He’s unselfish. He can score. He just has a good all-around game.” At York’s Jack Tosh Holiday Classic, the Lions won three games to make the semifinals before injuries and tougher competition caught up with them. LT lost to York in the semifinal, the Lions’ second loss at York (including a West Suburban Silver contest before the holidays), without Chris Hester, who still made the all-tournament team. Niego turned his ankle in the third-place game

Lyons Township’s Omarr Gilbert guards York’s Stanley Roberts in a Dec. 30 game at York’s Jack Tosh Holiday Classic tournament. Gilbert has emerged as a key guard for the Lions this season.

LT holiday tournament scores • LT 76, Wheaton North 65 • LT 69, Conant 64 • LT 62, Metea Valley 50 • York 56, LT 42 • Highland Park 53, LT 39 against Highland Park and left the game just before halftime. Gilbert led LT with 12 points against the Giants.

Gilbert played shooting guard at Walther, which currently goes by Walther Christian, due to the relative lack of numbers and size on the team. That was part of his adjustment to playing with the Lions. “I was a little bit taller on the team, but I’m one of the smallest people on the team here,” said the 5-foot-10 Gilbert. “At a small school you have a smaller variety to pick from for size in sports teams.” Gilbert’s past at shooting

guard helps him in his current role of alternating between that position and point guard depending on the situation. Niego is a standout point guard, but is also the team’s best scorer. “If we can, I try to bring it up to give him more scoring opportunities because he’s a better scorer,” Gilbert said. “If there’s an opportunity for him to beat somebody off the dribble and get somebody else open from being double-teamed, then that’s when he brings it

up and makes plays.” Gilbert and the Lions have had over a week to get healthy and host Oak Park-River Forest on Friday in a West Suburban Silver game. “We got a good group this year when everybody is healthy. It’s a lot more ball movement this year. It’s just a lot more fun,” Gilbert said. “It’s great chemistry and that’s what we need from everybody, ball movement and playing together.”

MORE BEARS COVERAGE AT HUBARKUSH.COM

Just how far away from Playoffs are Bears? Hub Arkush

Of the 12 teams that started the 2013 playoffs, the Bears only played four of them. In five games against Green Bay (2), Cincinnati, New Orleans and Philadelphia, the Bears were 2-3. The Bengals game was the first game of the season and the Bengals did as much or more to lose it as the Bears did to win it, kind of like Cincinnati’s third consecutive first round playoff exit last Sunday. Their other win over the Packers was accomplished without Aaron Rodgers as quarterback. Including the Bears game in which Rodgers went out after their first possession, the Packers were 2-5-1 without Rodgers including losses to the Giants, Lions and Steelers. The Bears losses to New Orleans and Philadelphia were their only two

losses of the year in which they were noncompetitive, and their other five losses besides a loss to the Packers were to Detroit (2) and the last place Rams, Vikings and Redskins. The Bears are clearly not in the same league with this year’s playoff teams. For starters, the Bears need to get better at quarterback. Seven of the 12 playoff starters including Nick Foles, Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick (91.6) had better passer ratings than Jay Cutler and all but Kaepernick were at least 12 points better at 101.2 and above while Cutler was 89.2. The other five Alex Smith (89.1), Andy Dalton (88.8), Cam Newton (88.8), Tom Brady (87.3) and Andrew Luck (87.0) were all almost even with Cutler in rating, all of them threw more touchdowns and only Dalton and Newton threw more picks. You tell me, other than Dalton is there a QB in the group you wouldn’t take over Cutler? The Bears are very competitive

with all of these playoff clubs at running back and wide receiver. With the possible exception of the Broncos, the Bears are better than any of those clubs at those positions. The only 2013 playoff teams that aren’t clearly more talented on the offensive line than the Bears are Indianapolis, San Diego and Green Bay. The Bears line was effective most of the time this season, but it’s not capable of taking over games the way the 49ers, Eagles, Seahawks, Panthers, Broncos, Patriots and Chiefs can at times. If you’re a Bears fan you already know that defensively they just don’t match up, particularly in the NFC. Seattle, the number one seed in the NFC also is first in the NFL in scoring defense. The second seeded Panthers are second in the league in fewest points allowed, the fifth seeded 49ers are third and the sixth seeded Saints are fourth. In the AFC, the Bengals and Chiefs tied for fifth in the league in scoring defense, the Colts were ninth in the league, the Patriots 10th and the Char-

gers were actually 11th. Nine of the 12 playoff teams are in the top 11 in scoring defense. In that top 11 only the Cardinals – seventh in points allowed and 10-6 – and the Dolphins – eighth and 8-8 – failed to make the playoffs. The Bears were 30th in scoring defense in 2013, tied with the Redskins and only the Vikings were worse. The Bears dramatic improvement on offense under Marc Trestman this year was exciting and at times a lot of fun to watch. But their decline from fifth in the NFL in total defense in 2012, eighth vs. the run and third in points allowed is the reason they fell from 10-6 to 8-8 and are not currently a legitimate contender. It is quite possible the Bears will improve at quarterback as Cutler spends more time with Trestman, but the only way they’re going back to the playoffs for the first time in four seasons and just the second time in the last eight is by turning over the defensive half of their roster with a lot more talent.
