Mothers and their children including (left-right) Beth and Anne Sloan of La Grange Park and Kristin McCoskey of La Grange participate Friday in the Fit4Mom Stroller Strides workout class at McCook Athletic and Exposition Center. The Stroller Strides class is intended for mothers to workout, stretch and work on strength training.

it,” Scott said. “It’s nice for me to be able to focus on me for a little bit.” Another new mom, Becca Barto, teaches the class, wheeling her nearly 5-monthold son Jack around the field and leading sets of stretches and other activities. “It’s an interval program, so we bounce back and forth between cardio exercises and strength training exercise,” Barto said. “And with the strength training, what my focus is to really make it specific to moms and our everyday movements and working on our cores, which is one of the most important pieces of our body to stay strong.” Barto said pregnancy and

giving birth can throw off moms’ balance. During the classes, they can use their strollers to keep steady, in addition to keeping tabs on their babies. “It’s nice to be able to interact with your little one, to be able to peak through the stroller and have [him or her] right next to you,” she said. Franko’s daughter, Violet, scampers around the field while her mom chats. At home, Violet assigns roles to her dolls, and the one who plays her mother tells the other dolls that mommy is going to the gym. “I really want [my kids] to know fitness as a part of life,” said Franko, who also has a 1-year-old daughter. “They see you working out, which I think is really important.” Stroller Strides is offered Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at the McCook Athletic and Exposition Center. A 10-class pass is $150, and an unlimited monthly pass is $65.

pounds when they’re pregnant. They lose most of it after giving birth, but it can take a while to lose the last 10 or so pounds, she said. “What mom doesn’t want her body back?” Franko said. But the program is about more than sculpting a new figure. Nursing and taking care of a baby makes it difficult, if not impossible, for many moms to find the time and energy to exercise, an essential component to anyone’s health. “Those nights when you’re up late because [the baby] doesn’t want to sleep, it’s definitely difficult to get out of the house [the next day],” said Shana Scott, a first-time mom who brought her 6-monthold daughter, Aubrey. “But having this [class] and other moms to come to [helps], and it’s very high-energy, so it’s nice to be excited about getting out of the house.” And for the baby? “She sleeps through most of

McCOOK – A caravan of black yoga pants, ponytails and strollers trots around an indoor soccer field. The group of six moms walks or jogs laps around the field, pushing strollers carrying their newborns, as young as 2-months-old. Then they form a circle – strollers inside, moms outside – and start to run around the circle as they sing, “Ring Around the Rosie,” stopping on “we all fall down” to stretch. Minutes earlier, the moms sang the A-B-C’s as their babies watched them pull resistance bands looped through a fence. Who said working out with a baby was impossible? “As a mom, you feel guilty not seeing your kids all day,” said Sara Franko, mother of two and owner of the La Grange-area FIT4MOM, a fitness program for moms with hundreds of franchises around the country. Franko, of La Grange Park, was pregnant with her now 3-year-old daughter when she took her first class in Chicago. Once Violet was born, Franko didn’t what to leave her at daycare when she worked out, so she signed up for Stroller Strides, an hour-long workout for moms that incorporates power walking, strength training, toning and singing to keep the little ones entertained. “I really loved being around the other moms, which I never really expected,” Franko said. “[I thought], ‘I don’t want to bond with other moms. I just want to go work out.’” Franko recently opened the first FIT4MOM franchise in the western suburbs and has

for instructions on how to snort heroin Oct. 8, 9 and 10. Officially, Steven Marin’s cause of death is yet to be determined, and it could take several months for the medical examiner to confirm what April Marin suspects – that Steven was trying heroin for the first time and used too much. “He was talking about the future,” she said. “It wasn’t like, ‘I’m depressed again, and I don’t want to live.’ This was an accident. He was trying something out and he died.” In addition to his mother, Steven Marin is survived by his father, Jose, and brother, Jeffrey.

LA GRANGE PARK – The poem April Marin handed out at her son’s funeral is titled, “You Took a Risk And The Risk Took You.” At about 3:30 p.m. Oct. 10, April Marin came home from work and found Steven, her youngest son, lying face-up on his bed with what looked like the whitish inside of a banana smeared across his face. Foam was spewing from his mouth and nose. April pounded on his chest and more foam came out, this time bloody. She called 9-1-1, and watched from her front door as paramedics performed CPR on Steven in the ambulance. After being taken to La Grange Memorial Hospital, he was pronounced dead at 4:46 p.m. He was 20. He took a risk, and it took him. Later, April Marin found a rolled-up piece of a page Steven had torn out of a video game magazine. She also found a small plastic bag with a powdery white substance, which police later took. April Marin said she knew Steven had used marijuana for years and she disapproved. But heroin, she said she never suspected. She went through Steven’s phone after his death and found that he had searched

McCOOK – A quarry blast, initially labeled a 3.7 magnitude earthquake, was felt across the Chicago area at 12:35 p.m. Monday. “We’re pretty sure it was a quarry blast,” said Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Earthquake Information Center. The center first reported that the tremor, which lasted a few seconds, was an earthquake. “We’re pretty sure that’s what it is, but there’s still controversy,” said Caruso, who said the tremor was felt as far as Kenosha, Wis. The U.S. Geological Survey website indicated the tremor originated in Countryside.

8NEWS BRIEFS Amnesty for invalid property tax exemptions Residents of Cook County who wrongly claimed property tax exemptions have until the end of the year to pay the money back and avoid penalties. After Dec. 31, the Cook County Assessor’s Office will investigate erroneous exemptions that have gone unreported and will require taxpayers to pay additional fees and interest on their savings or face civil or criminal prosecution. In Illinois, a person is allowed to collect an exemption only on the home that is his or her primary residence. A new law gives the assessor the means to recoup funds from those who wrongly receive exemptions for being a homeowner, senior, disabled person or disabled veteran. The law requires an amnesty period to allow taxpayers who wrongly claim one or two exemptions to repay the savings by the end of the year. Those who wrongly claim three exemptions are not eligible for

amnesty. Since July 1, the Assessor’s Office has billed more than $1 million erroneous exemption savings received by taxpayers. For more information, go to www.cookcountyassessor.com.

It’s Your Money By Linda Sokol Francis, E.A. WHAT KIND OF PLASTIC? Some people still pay cash for everything, but more people carry plastic cards instead of a walletful of money. There are credit cards, debit cards and prepaid cards, all with their own pluses and minuses. What’s the right choice for you? Credit cards have the most protection against fraud: if your card is stolen, you are responsible for no more than $50.00 in unauthorized purchases. The cards build credit history, and some offer rewards. But some folks fear they’ll overspend. Debit cards limit how much you can spend–the amount in your bank account. But if the card if the card is stolen and you don’t report it promptly, you may be liable for all the charges on it. Most prepaid cards don’t offer protection against unauthorized use, except for those payroll cards that employers use to pay wages; they work like debit cards. It’s smart to check your account regularly for any suspicious activity.

In July, the board denied a request by the property owner at 1 N. La Grange Road to allow signage for the building’s two second-floor tenants, ATI Physical Therapy and Massage Envy. Owners of both businesses – along with owners of second-floor businesses on Harris Avenue – then asked the village for some way to display signs during a public meeting in August.

time,” Schroeder said. Trustee Jim Palermo and former Trustee Michael Horvath had in the past urged fellow board members to consider larger contributions to the pension funds, but were unsuccessful. “They personally took some heat for being so aggressive,” Trustee Mark Kuchler said Monday. “But I think what we’ve seen by bringing in a fresh look, they were right.” Palermo, who still questioned Schroeder’s decision to use death rates lower than recommended by the state, said the village is now in better hands. “My comfort level is far higher than it was a couple years [ago],” he said. “It’s going to result in tighter belts, but it was an [adjustment] that had to be made, and we’ll be a stronger financial community for it.”

LA GRANGE – A new actuary is recommending the village contribute roughly $345,000 more to its police and fire pension funds than budgeted for next fiscal year, but a surplus from last year is expected to offset the increase. During the Oct. 28 Village Board meeting, Todd Schroeder, of the accounting firm Lauterbach & Amen, said that a number of adjusted factors, including the mortality rate of police and firefighters, influenced his recommendation. “We are seeing that police officers and firefighters are living longer than has generally been assumed for police officers and firefighters in Illinois in the past,” Schroeder said. If the Village Board votes in De-

cember to increase pension contributions based on Schroeder’s recommendation, the cost will primarily be offset by revenue from income and sales tax, building permits and a planned 1 percent increase in the village’s utility tax, Finance Director Lou Cipparrone said. The utility tax will increase from 3 to 4 percent for fiscal year 2014-15, still less than the 5 percent maximum most municipalities use, Cipparrone said. Before hiring Schroeder, the village worked with an actuary who used mortality tables from several decades ago, causing the village to contribute less to the police and fire pension funds than it might have with recommendations based on updated rates. “It’s going to be a problem that’s got to be chipped away at slowly over

• SIGNAGE Continued from page 11 architecturally unique downtown it has preserved, decided to add the new plan to its stringent Zoning Code to create more flexibility for businesses. Commercial building owners will now submit signage plans that would govern all signs on the property. The Design Review Commission will review applications – previously, the Zoning Board considered sign ordinance variations – and make a recommendation to the village manager, who will have final say. If new signage meets the village’s current requirements, building owners do not have to submit an application. “We struggled with this as a board and looked for some help, and I think staff and the Design Review Commission came up with a great solution,” Trustee Mark Langan said. Guidelines for commer-

cial signage call for displays that reflect the architectural character of the building, are oriented to pedestrians and appropriately sized for the building. Signs with electronic messages or animation will remain prohibited. The new plan will accelerate the process of businesses applying for new signage. The village manager must decide whether to accept or reject an application 15 days after receiving a recommendation from the Design Review Commission. Trustee David McCarty, an architect who helped develop the village’s Zoning Code, said he shared the concern of the one Plan Commission member who voted against the new plan because it was too broad, but still voted in favor of it. “What I really like about it is that it brings the Design Review Commission back into an active role in our downtown,” he said.

Boosting awareness and improving service Perhaps you are a person who rolls out of bed each day and says to yourself, “Today is the day I make the world a better place!” If so, you will appreciate that Rotary-La Grange members have also said such a thing, and that on Monday, Nov. 4, they had a very, very good day. Following many months of meetings, many hours of collaboration and many dollars donated by area philanthropists, they unveiled their COMMUNITY masterpiece: The Community VOICE Services Video Project. Katherine Complete with popcorn, Leibforth the video premiere was accompanied by heartwarming entertainment provided by the Helping Hand Bell Choir and Dancers from the LeaderShop’s Watch My Feet troupe. While the Harvest Reception, hosted by The West Suburban Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Nonprofit Resource Committee, takes an opportunity each fall to recognize the collaboration among our communities’ business leaders, this year’s celebration marked the most complex mix of organizations and individuals in the event’s five-year tradition. The project was led by Rotary La Grange and supported by the Brookfield Rotary, Western Springs Rotary and Hinsdale Rotary. The video features 10 nonprofit agencies that are key service providers in the western suburbs. Each of the agencies in the video highlights how they can assist area residents in finding the services they need to live healthy, independent lives. Cindy Frymark, co-chair of the La Grange Rotary Community Service Committee, said, “The committee believed that while La Grange is not unique in facing the problems outlined in the video, we are unique in the way our community is addressing these issues.” Frymark, with co-chair Ken Grunke of Aging Care Connections, also identified numerous community leaders to speak to the necessity of the project. Greg DiDomenico, President of Community Memorial Foundation (CMF) was one of those leaders. CMF regularly advances its vision and mission of building healthier communities by partnering with local organizations and building on existing local assets. DiDomenico, and the video premier itself, invited every one of the event’s 150 guests to “be the message,” a call to action that is extended to all of you reading this today. To be the message, like it on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pages/Rotary-Club-of-LaGrange.

8SOUND OFF Time for memorials Regarding the cups over 294: It’s in memory of Kelli O’Laughlin. It’s been two years. While it’s well-intended, if you want to memorialize somebody, you have a memorial service after they pass. Also have a funeral, and if they’re buried, they’re in a cemetery or the Ashes are dealt with if there is a cremation. A memorial is something that should be done within a year of the end of the person’s life, and then that’s that.

Build a bookstore Regarding the old YMCA property La Grange on the corner of La Grange and Ogden: How about a bookstore? Since we’ve lost Borders, it would be great if maybe Barnes and Noble could come in, or some other bookstore. We surely miss it.

The night Steven died, April Marin couldn’t sleep. She scoured the Internet for answers. She started to grasp the fact that her son is one of a long and growing list of overdose victims in the suburbs. In DuPage County, for example, there had been 41 suspected heroin-related deaths this year, as of Oct. 24. Cook County’s records do not differentiate between heroin-related deaths and fatalities caused by other opiates. April Marin’s message, while raw, is that the same thing that happened to Steven could happen to others. If recent history continues, it will. Steven Marin graduated from Lyons Township High School in 2012. He was smart, and as a kid, he loved to read, his mom said. But the older he got, the more he became frustrated by school and lost interest. Over the past five years, he was hospitalized a handful of times for depression. In September, Steven spent five days at GlenOaks Hospital in Glendale Heights. The day after being released, he started training for a job he had nailed down before his hospitalization, washing dishes at a restaurant in Countryside. “That’s why he wanted to come home so fast,” April Marin said. “He was worried about losing the job.” He worked three days a week from 3 p.m. until close. He was enjoying having a job, which would help him save money to buy a car so he could

enroll in a cooking program at a community college. He thought he was in line for a position in the restaurant’s bakery that would have been five days a week, but he didn’t get it. Had he, he would have been scheduled to work there at 3:30 p.m. Oct. 10. “He was talking about so much for his future,” April Marin said. “He wanted to go back to school for cooking. That’s been a passion of his since he was little kid, since he was baking pies with my mom for Thanksgiving.” On Oct. 14, about 30 of Steven���s friends were among the standing-room-only crowd at his wake at Hitzeman Funeral Home in Brookfield. Almost an hour after the service, as April Marin and her family were leaving, a circle of Steven’s friends were still in the parking lot, talking and laughing about Steven, and saying how much they were going to miss him. “If Steven just knew that so many people cared about him,” April Marin said. After Steven’s funeral, April Marin posted a Facebook message thanking his friends who attended. She also told them to let Steven’s death be a message and to take care of each other, even if it means speaking up to police or other authorities when they think one of them is at risk. She plans to keep Steven’s Facebook profile active at least through his birthday, Jan. 24, and will post a photo of him from time to time. “Just to keep him in their thoughts,” she said. “To keep them coming back to the fact he’s not there anymore.

Restaurant reviews

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

LT offense held in check in second half of postseason loss By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com

said. “Credit to them. They’re a good football team. I’m disappointed in the way we played offensively in the second half.” It was LT’s second-lowest point total of the season. The Lions had seven drives reach Simeon territory and only got points out of two of those drives despite never turning the ball over. The Lions finished the season with a 5-5 record. It is the first time LT lost in the first round of the playoffs since Weinberg’s first year, 2009. Despite the disappointment, there were some positives about the season. LT went 4-2 in the West Suburban Silver to post a winning record in the conference for the first time since 2010. They also beat rival Hinsdale Central for the first time since 2010. Ross and quarterback Tommy Fiedler give the Lions plenty to look forward to. The duo will provide an experienced and talented senior pair at important skill positions for next year’s offense. However, Fiedler will need to find new weapons in the passing game with the top three wide Bill Ackerman – backerman@shawmedia.com receivers – Matt Mrazek, MarLyons Township quarterback Tom Fiedler, right, throws the ball in the regular season finale against Provicell Kellum and Sam Shea – all so West on Oct. 25.

LSL

CHICAGO – After fighting so hard to get to the playoffs, Lyons Township’s season ended abruptly. The Lions lost to Simeon 20-16 in a Class 8A first round playoff game at Gately Stadium on Saturday. It was a game that will probably be remembered by Lions fans for LT’s missed opportunities. Simeon took an early 6-0 lead, but LT surged ahead 14-6 on a pair of touchdown runs by junior running back Leonard Ross. The Wolverines clawed within 14-12 just before halftime and took the lead in the fourth quarter. LT came up short on two would-be comeback drives in Simeon territory. The Lions’ lone points of the second half came on an intentional safety by Simeon. “I thought offensively we did a good job moving the ball and we just couldn’t get anything going in the second half,” LT coach Kurt Weinberg said. “We did nothing offensively in the second half.” Trailing 20-14 with 9:42 left in the game, LT drove all the way to a first-and-goal on the Simeon 10-yard line. The drive stalled there. The defense came up with a stop, forcing Simeon to punt from its own 11-yard-line. The Wolverines took a safety to avoid punting out of the end zone and the Lions had one more shot, but managed just one first down on the final drive. “We just didn’t execute very well and they did a good job defensively,” Weinberg

8ALL-AREA SOCCER MVP

Life in net suits Morton’s Chacon Mustangs’ keeper major part of team’s 21 shutouts By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com BERWYN – Soccer is not a sport to get into if you don’t like running – unless you want to play goalkeeper. Keepers are only called upon for short bursts of effort, but those efforts can decide matches. Morton’s Ian Chacon played defender for a couple years when he first started playing soccer as a kid but shifted to keeper and hasn’t left since. “First when I started, I played defense, but I never really liked running so my grandfather put me in the back and I liked it,” Chacon said. It’s a good thing for the Mustangs because he has proven to be one of the best goalkeepers in the state. Chacon’s standout play this season earned him the Most Valuable Player of the Suburban Life All-Area Boys Soccer team. “I really liked it because everybody is looking at me,” Chacon said of playing goalkeeper. “If a goal goes in that’s on me. Sometimes I got to help out the team.” Chacon helped the defense post 21 shutouts heading into Tuesday’s super sectional. Chacon earned shutouts in both sectional games and made pressure saves in a pair of 1-0 wins. It’s the kind of play that has come to be expected of him since joining the varsity team as a freshman. In the sectional final against Lyons Township, Chacon denied LT star Frankie Kocimski alone in front of goal and the Mustangs took the lead less than 10 minutes later. In addition to big saves like that he cuts out crosses and eliminates chances before they even start.

“I started in the alleys like everybody else. Then, my grandpa saw we had talent; he took us in and he started coaching us.” Ian Chacon Goalkeeper

“Once again, he was in command of his box,” Morton coach Mike Caruso said. “That was a great save and then he got the luck of the bounce on that ball as well and grabbed it.” Chacon currently plays with the Cicero Mayans club with many of his Morton teammates, but he got his start in a less formal setting. “I started in the alleys like everybody else,” Chacon said. “Then, my grandpa saw we had talent; he took us in and he started coaching us.” The we also is referring to his older brother, Miguel, who also played keeper for Morton. Miguel is three years older than Ian and the brothers shared time on the 2011 state champion team. Miguel started both games at state that year, but Ian did play in the playoffs. The tutelage the brothers received from their grandfather and helped both excelled at goalkeeper. Now Ian is hoping to find a college program to play for. “Me and my dad have been focusing on colleges,” he said. “It’s early, but we’re looking into that to see what we have to do so we can get in. “I just try my best and hopefully somebody is watching and let’s see what they have to offer.”

Morton goalkeeper Ian Chacon makes a save in the Mustangs’ sectional championship game against Lyons Township on Friday. A former defender, Chacon has turned into a stellar goalkeeper.


Luis Alvarado

Alonso Fregoso

Frankie Kocimski

Tom Smith

School: Morton Year: Senior Impact: The Mustangs’ defense is among the best in the state and Alvarado was a key reason why. Shifting between right back and left back, Alvarado brought toughness and experience to the Morton back line. Alvarado, a four-year varsity player, was an honorable mention all-sectional pick.

School: Morton Year: Senior Impact: Fregoso moved from central defender to forward in the middle of the season and used his size to shield defenders and hold up the ball for the Mustangs. Fregoso is never shy to make a fancy move on the ball. He had a goal and an assist in the regional final victory and assisted the only goal in the sectional final.

School: Lyons Township Year: Senior Impact: Kocimski’s long and flat throws added an extra dynamic to the LT attack, but he was so much more than a big arm. The tall, fast and athletic forward wasn’t afraid to run at defenders and cause havoc on opposing defenses. Kocimski was also a team captain and an all-sectional selection each of the past two years.

School: Fenwick Year: Senior Impact: Smith was a key part of a defense that gave up more than one goal just five times this season. The all-state defender was a part of the Friars’ sectional winning squad last year and helped the Friars post a 4-1 record in Chicago Catholic League play this year.

Santiago Beltran

Anthony Gulli

Matt Murphy

Chris Tovar

School: Riverside Brookfield Year: Senior Impact: Beltran was the top playmaker for the Bulldogs. The senior captain played an attacking role in midfield and was a dynamic player on the ball. He battled injuries this season but was still a key player in his third year on varsity.

School: St. Joseph Year: Junior Impact: The midfielder was on Benet’s varsity team as a freshman but has been a big addition to the St. Joseph program since transferring. He emerged as a top player for the Chargers this season, earning all-state honors and helping St. Joseph win a regional title.

School: Lyons Township Year: Senior Impact: Murphy was LT’s leading scorer last year despite largely coming off the bench and continued to be a key threat in the Lions’ attack this season. The senior was an all-state pick as a forward, standing out among the many talented attacking options on the team.

School: Nazareth Year: Senior Impact: Tovar has been a big part of Nazareth’s first ever sectional title as the team’s leading goal scorer. The senior forward was named East Suburban Catholic all-conference for the second straight year and was an all-sectional selection this season.

HONORABLE MENTION Fenwick Joaquin Camara

Lyons Township Emilio Godinez, Spiro Kass

Morton Ian Chacon

Harry Hilling

Fabian Robles

School: Morton Year: Junior Impact: Morton’s ability to possess the ball and its quality defense didn’t always make Chacon work hard, but the junior goalkeeper typically came up with the big saves. The third year varsity player is a reason why the Morton defense has more than 20 shutouts this season.

School: Lyons Township Year: Junior Impact: Hilling was a major contributor on a team filled with senior starters. He set the tone for the offense with his play in central midfield and was the team’s top creator. Hilling scored twice in the regional final win against Downers Grove South.

School: St. Joseph Year: Senior Impact: The Chargers’ captain led the team to a 16-4-3 record this season. He helped solidify the back line as a central defender in his third year on varsity. He was an honorable mention all-sectional pick.

Ground game takes Nazareth to second round By DAN SANTAROMITA

Number to know

dsantaromita@shawmedia.com CHICAGO – Defending Nazareth’s offense must be frustrating for opposing defenses. The Roadrunners cycle several running backs in and out and even multiple quarterbacks in the middle of a drive. Each running back is capable of running through the holes created by Naz’s big offensive line. On top of all that, Naz is capable of playing up-tempo to further wear out defenses while fresh running backs are coming from every corner of the Nazareth sideline. Nazareth showcased its offensive style in a Class 5A first round playoff win against Brooks on Saturday at Gately Stadium. The Roadrunners utilized 13 different ball carriers, six of which averaged at least five yards per carry, in a 37-13 win. “We’ve been doing it all year so it helps because if somebody gets dinged or they’re out, another kid is

The Roadrunners (8-2) fumbled on the first play of the game and gave up a Brooks (82) touchdown three plays later. However, Naz settled down and scored the next 30 points in the game.

Daniel Bakovich (12 carries, 41 yards) scored the Roadrunners’ first two touchdowns. Julian Love (6 carries, 43 yards) added another score after Robbie Brindley recovered a fumble inside the 10yard line. Ivory Kelly-Martin (11 carries, 55 yards) scored Naz’s final touchdown. Cyle Tucker (7 carries, 37 yards) was also

Sycamore at Nazareth When: 1 p.m. Saturday Where: Valenta Stadium 1209 W. Ogden Ave., La Grange Park Records: No. 10 Nazareth 8-2, No. 2 Sycamore 10-0 Outlook: The Roadrunners get to host an undefeated team for the third time since the start of October. Naz beat the other two, Notre Dame and Benet, and hasn’t lost since. Sycamore has won nine of its 10 games by double figures and played seven playoff teams in the regular season, including four that won in the first round. featured in the running game. “They really thrive off each other,” Racki said of his various

runners. “It’s not like they’re being selfish and want more carries. They’re happy when another guy makes a play. It’s really a great group of kids that pull for each other. That makes it easier on me as a coach to spread the ball around.” Defensively, Naz forced four turnovers. A pick six by Kevin Jackson, his second interception of the game, truly put the game out of reach in the third quarter. “We thought they were going to run most, but we knew they were a good passing team,” Jackson said. “We just had to make sure we stayed with them. “Next week is going to be way harder.” Nazareth’s sixth straight win earned them a second round home game against undefeated Sycamore. The Spartans (10-0) ran for well more than 300 yards in a 48-24 win over Antioch on Saturday. Dion Hooker and Iowa recruit Ben Niemann lead Sycamore’s rushing attack.

Fenwick handles Hersey to move on in playoffs By SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA ELMHURST – Fenwick’s football team advanced to the second round of the Class 7A state playoffs with a 28-6 win over Hersey at Elmhurst College on Friday. The Friars got an early boost in the form of two first-quarter touchdown runs by senior running back Robert Spillane. Fenwick built up a 21-6 halftime lead and the Friars’ defense took care of things from there. Hersey was unable to score in the second half and was held to a season low point total. The Huskies entered the game averaging just under 27 points per game. With the win, Fenwick (9-1) earned a date against Wheaton North in the second round. The Falcons (8-2) beat Glenbrook North 53-7 in the first round. The Friars will again play host at Elmhurst College.

Up next Wheaton North at Fenwick When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday Where: Langhorst Field, S. Prospect Avenue and Alexander Boulevard, Elmhurst Records: No. 4 Fenwick 9-1; No. 5 Wheaton North 8-2 Outlook: The Friars won a firstround playoff game for the second year in a row and now host a second straight game at Elmhurst College. Wheaton North boasts Northwestern-bound quarterback Clayton Thorson and an offense that has only been held to less than 30 points in its two defeats. Meanwhile, the most points Fenwick has allowed in a game this season is 21.

This is Fenwick’s second straight trip to the second round of the playoffs in the two years under coach Gene Nudo.

Morton 1, Lyons Township 0 Goal: Edgar Garcia, 26th minute

Bill Ackerman – backerman@shawmedia.com

Lyons Township’s Cristian Sanchez, right, makes a move on Morton forward Jovany Garcia during the Hinsdale South sectional final on Friday. The Lions lost a close 1-0 contest to the Mustangs. the Pepsi Showdown, 1-0. With those close games, both coaches knew one goal could decide it. Garcia’s goal came in the 26th minute, less than 10 minutes after LT captain Frankie Kocimski was denied

in front of the goal on a nice play by Mustang goalkeeper Ian Chacon. “It’s always a great rivalry with Morton,” Kocimski said. “When us two teams step on the field it’s going to be a

great game overall.” Kocimski said he plans to go into medicine with the hope of becoming a physical therapist. Playing in college is still a possibility, but he is making academics the prior-

ity on where he decides to go. The attacker recognizable for his massive throw ins will leave as part of a senior class that experienced a lot of success in the program. Last year’s Pepsi Showdown title and regional titles in 2011 and 2013 are among the highlights. “They’re very successful over the course of four years in our program,” Labbato said. “What great seniors and the leadership they put together.” The 2-1 win over rival and previously undefeated Hinsdale Central in the sectional semifinal was another high point for the team. “Knocking off Hinsdale [Central] and coming in with a record of 17-3-3 it’s not a bad season,” Kocimski said. “We got a regional championship under our belt and I know that the underclassmen on the team are going to take this into next season and definitely have a good one next year.”

Weird way to win sectional for Nazareth soccer SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA

After beating Little Village 3-0 on Oct. 30 in a Class 2A sectional semifinal, Nazareth’s boys soccer team received a forfeit win in the sectional final.

DARIEN – Morton and Lyons Township have met on the soccer field with plenty on the line in recent years. Friday’s meeting between the two added another chapter to that history. The Mustangs edged the Lions 1-0 in the Hinsdale South sectional final. Morton got a first half goal from Edgar Garcia and let its defense do the work from there. Morton earned its 21st shutout of the season in the victory. “They’re much better than advertised and they’re advertised as very good,” LT coach Paul Labbato said. “We saw first hand right in front of us, how good they actually are and they defend. Maybe some of the best defending I’ve seen out of any high school team in a long time. They defend and defend with heart.” Morton last met LT in the playoffs in 2011, when the Mustangs won 4-3 in double overtime in a sectional semifinal en route to a state title. The year before, LT won 2-1 in a sectional final. Last year, the Lions got the best of Morton in the final of

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The mother and son team make up Higgins Glass Studio, 33 E. Quincy, entrusted to the Wimmers to carry on the art crafted by their long time mentors, Fran and Michael Higgins, who began the company in 1948. Louise and Jonathan agree that it was Fran’s ideas and Michael’s energy and ingenuity that led these two huge talents to start their work out if their Chicago apartment in 1948. Over the years their art sold in such major retailers as Marshall Field’s, Georg Jensen and Bullocks Wilshire, the very high end store in the California based department store chain. In 1966, the Higgins decided to return to private studio work and set up their offices in Riverside. The website notes that “here they were free to set their own goals, meet their own standards and design in the direction their hearts and minds led them.” There’s a lot of history in Higgins, and the Wimmers are proud of their work and the company.

65 Years and The Tradition Continues! Unique objects of fused, enameled and molded glass all hand made in our studio.
