Naturalist leads Bliss Woods tree tour in Sugar Grove By NATALIE JUNS editorial@kcchronicle.com SUGAR GROVE – Naturalist Ben Katzen of the Forest Preserve District of Kane County this fall led a group of 11 people on a guided tour of Bliss Woods in Sugar Grove. Katzen earned his forestry degree from the University of Florida. As a naturalist, he studies how forestry fits in with the landscape and how to preserve it. Katzen said Bliss Woods is one of the nicest forest preserves in the county. “Bliss Woods is an Illinois State Nature Preserve that has a higher level of protection with higher fines for misuse,” Katzen said. “You’ll notice this is a well-maintained woodland with no bushes or weeds. You can see through the trees. There are two types of wood-

SUGAR GROVE – When Karen McCannon wants something done, she gets it done. There was no way she was going to spend the holiday season without the massive evergreen tree at Route 47 and Cross Street illuminated. When McCannon found out Sugar Grove Village President Sean Michels deemed it wouldn’t be appropriate to spend taxpayer money on tree lighting last year, she rallied volunteers and raised funds so that she could do it on her own. Now, with the lights already purchased, it was a far easier task of getting them out of storage and installing them on the tree this year. “Last year we started at ground zero, and it’s funny because I had asked the village if I could do this and they looked at me like I was crazy,” McCannon said. “Now every night I can look outside my front door and see that beautiful tree. Other towns like St. Charles might be much bigger and do more things, but we’ve shown we can do something pretty big, too.” Jim Wilhelm (2009) and Pat Graceffa (2006) are two of the volunteers who were instrumental in assisting in the project the past two years, along with McCannon (2008); all three have been named Sugar Grove Citizens of the Year. “People may think when someone wins Citizen of the Year that they’re done doing things,” McCannon said. “It doesn’t end when you get those accolades. You’re still out there doing things for the community.”

ger worked, resulting in replacement purchases. “Lee Drendel, [Sugar Grove Township trustee], really made sure we got a good deal on lights that were heavy-duty and could handle being out in the weather for more than just one Christmas,” McCannon said. “A lot of people were generous and that helped us get high-quality lights that we think should last a long time.” The lights came from Texas, and a long evening of putting the lights together last year in Al Markus’ garage in Sugar Grove provided wonderful fellowship for the volunteers. Even the Sugar Grove Fire Department assisted in the effort that night. All that work made it easier for this year’s installation to be done pretty much seamlessly. “There was a lot of work because it was our first time doing it last year,” McCannon said. “But we also made sure that once we took everything down and stored it, that we would be in good shape for this year.” Now that she can glance out of her Julie Walker - For Shaw Media front door every night and see the tree Lee Drendel, Al Markus, Bill Born and Karen McCannon enjoy the Christmas tree lighting lit up in all its glory, McCannon can rest easy and go to bed with a smile on ceremony Nov. 25 at Cross Street and Route 47 in Sugar Grove. her face. “We couldn’t have done it without McCannon, who is also known by nage this year. “Jim Wilhelm is the one with the all the volunteers,” she said. “Pat and her clown character, JoJo, did face painting and other entertaining things boom – [the truck] – which we really Dan Graceffa, Jim Wilhelm, Lee Drenduring the annual Corn Boil.

Get to know Charmaine Morris By TARAH THORNE tthorne@shawmedia.com

Charmaine Morris was at Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove when she answered questions for news editor Tarah Thorne. Thorne: What’s your role at Waubonsee? Morris: I’m a student-worker. Thorne: Do you live in Sugar Grove? Morris: I live in Montgomery. I’ve lived there about a decade. Thorne: What year are you at Waubonsee? Morris: Sophomore Thorne: What are you studying? Morris: Psychology Thorne: What led you to psychology? Morris: I like to make people feel good. Thorne: What’s your dream job? Morris: I’d like to have my own private practice. Thorne: What was your first job ever? Morris: I was a McDonald’s crew member. Thorne: Where would you like to travel? Morris: Switzerland. It’s beautiful. Thorne: Do you have any hobbies? Morris: I like to sing, but I wouldn’t want to be famous.

referring to Hughes as “Miss Beverly.” “She was the library lady who always had a smile for them,” Murphy said. “She would help them find what they needed for that school assignment.” Bill and Kathy Durrenberger moved to Sugar Grove in 1990 and after settling in took the entire family to get library cards. They didn’t know it at the time, but it was just the beginning of a long and close relationship with Hughes. “Beverly always had a smile on her face and a warm greeting and would take whatever time was necessary to help a library patron,” Bill Durrenberger said. “I had the great privilege of working with her as a trustee on the library’s board and she was as helpful to me, and as pleasant to work with, in my capacity as a new trustee, as she had always been to my family and [I] as library patrons. And, of course, as everyone knows, Beverly’s involvement in our community went well beyond her service as library director.

Her death is the passing of a truly good human being. She will be missed. May she rest in peace.” Hughes, who worked at the library from 1990 to 2011, was selected Sugar Grove Citizen of the Year in 2010, and while her contributions at the library were enormous, her service went beyond that. “Beverly was also crucial to the development of the Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce. She made the community Corn Boil a major area event through her tireless work ethic and attention to detail,” Sugar Grove residents Daniel and Nancy Herkes said. “Beverly’s relentless efforts to provide literacy to our community must be acknowledged. We feel as though a great spirit left us, yet her legacy remains.” Shannon Halikias, the current library director, had known Hughes since college. “When she attended my director reception she healed hearts here by the giving of herself, by being there and coming to stand,” Halikias said. “And that is the way she always was, remarkably kind and smiling with a [lesser] concern for [herself] and more concern for others. She was a steward to the world.” With Halikias in charge, there’s peace of mind knowing that Hughes will live on in the library. “We see her impact in the nowgrown children that she read to in story time and we see her love of books and community in the gracious lines of our building,” Halikias said. “She especially loved the beautiful sunsets seen out of the soaring windows and thought the wonder of the world beautiful. We will always have pieces of her in our building, in her legacy of service here and in our hearts. My friend and colleague will be missed, and I pray lights may guide her home.”

They have three measurements they go by such as how tall it is, how big around [it is] and how big the crown is. If they do have the biggest, they will get a plaque and certificate.”

SUGAR GROVE – Nearing the Thanksgiving holiday, many local residents took a moment to reflect on how thankful they were to have known North Aurora resident Beverly Holmes Hughes. Hughes, who was the Sugar Grove Public Library director for 21 years, died Nov. 19 at the age of 56 after a long battle with brain cancer. “One of my favorite things about her was that I could talk to her for an hour about some program or project and try to convey what I thought it should be and she would patiently listen to everything I had to say about it,” library board member Pat Graceffa said. “I would then ask, ‘Does that make sense?’ and it would never fail, she would repeat back my hour of rambling in one or two wonderfully constructed sentences that made perfect sense. She so got me in every way. Friends like Beverly are so hard to find and even harder to lose. I will truly miss her every day.” Like many, Mari Johnson, a Sugar Grove village trustee, first met Hughes at the library. That was about 25 years ago when she first started visiting with her oldest son, Tim. “Beverly made things so fun for the kids. They all loved her and looked forward to hearing the stories each week,” Johnson said. “I got to know her better over the years because Beverly made the library such a great place. I volunteered often with kids activities and adult reading groups. Beverly made the library about more than just books. She encouraged so many to have a love for reading. She worked hard to make the Sugar Grove library a vibrant community space. We should continue to keep striving for excellence in her memory.” Jerry Murphy, whose children are now grown adults, remembers them

Kaneland School District receives audit praise District also recognizes teacher “You have no significant during school board meeting deficiencies and no single audit findings. I think that says a lot By CHRIS WALKER editorial@kcchronicle.com about the district.” Andrew Mace, director of school district services at Sikich, a professional services firm, had high praise for the Kaneland School District when he presented the 2015-16 audit reports for both Kaneland and the Fox Valley Career Center during the Nov. 28 school board meeting. “You have no significant deficiencies and no single audit findings,” he said. “I think that says a lot about the district.” It’s the intention of the administration to ultimately submit the comprehensive annual financial report to the Association of School Business Officials International for the Certificate of Excellence. The district had received such recognition for the first time during the 2014-15 audit. “In one of our footnotes, earlier last year you refunded some debt and the net effect of that refund was a $7 million economic gain,” Mace said. “That’s phenomenal, and then earlier this month you did it again for a $2.3 million eco-

nomic gain. We present that footnote for a lot of districts and rarely see numbers like that so that’s tremendous.” The board will be asked to review the large amount of audit documentation and approve the 2015-16 audit reports at its next meeting Dec. 12. “It’s all very positive,” Mace said. “You’re doing a great job. You’re well-managed, you take care of things, and it’s a well-run district.” In other news, an update on the progress of Kaneland 2020 was provided, although at this point in time the majority of the work that has been completed is related to the creation of structures to collect and gather information before being able to move ahead. The update was organized based on the three priorities of the plan: personalized learning, culture and human re-

sources. Communication is a key component of all three, as surveys have been developed for personalized learning and culture, while exit interviews are being conducted as staff leaves the district as part of human resources. Superintendent Todd Leden recognized teacher Javier Martinez as one of his “Superintendent Salutes” for his work with the Medal of Honor Foundation. The Medal of Honor program is designed by teachers to provide students with opportunities to explore the important concepts of courage, commitment, sacrifice, patriotism, integrity and citizenship, and examine how these values can be exemplified in daily life. The depth and breadth of students’ insight and reflection after interacting with these materials has been recognized as being remarkable. Martinez said he’s visited schools all over the country, including stops in Arkansas and Oregon, as well as schools within the district. “We used the Medal of Honor stories as a short living history vignette to teach kids about character values,” Martinez said. “It lets kids realize they don’t have to wear a uniform to make a difference. It’s been very well-received so far.”

For the past 18 years, the Kane County Law Library has invited judges to read to children as part of Family Reading Night. I love covering this event. The children are encouraged to wear their pajamas, and – of course – the judges wear their pajamas as well. I think it’s a great way for kids and their parents to see a softer side of the judges and the county’s judicial system. You could see the wonder in the children’s faces as they entered one of the courtrooms at the Kane County Judicial Center in St. Charles.  Pictured are Asher Schulenberg, 4, (wearing Superman pajamas) and Josh Schulenberg, 9, (wearing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pajamas) of Batavia sitting behind the bench.

I will always remember my first encounter with witch hazel. I was about 6 years old and – for whatever reason – running headlong around my parents’ house. Eyes down, arms outstretched, I was chasing after something my tender young brain had deemed very important when, BAM! I hit a wall. Needless to say, the racing around ended rather abruptly, and I was left to ponder the sensation of my forehead expanding into a nice-sized lump. “Quite an egg,” I remember my mom saying as she wrapped up some ice in a washcloth and set it on the bulging knot. “Better get the witch hazel.” I can still picture the bottle with its yellow, black and red label, and without too much effort can still recall the cooling sensation the liquid left as Mom dabbed it on the “egg.” (I also remember the oohs and aahs I got at school that afternoon when I lifted up my stylish bangs and showed off the purple lump which, despite the witch hazel, had attained impressive size.) Since that day in 1960-something I’ve had many more occasions that were witch hazel-worthy, but none are as clear in my mind as that first experience – unless you count the most recent run-in, which I can picture as though it were yesterday. Actually, it was yesterday. Walking through the native plant garden behind the Pottawatomie Community Center, I felt a tug as a branch grabbed my sleeve. Looking down, I recognized my old friend witch hazel. But this time, rather than being decked out in a yellow, black and red label, it bore the colors of its more natural form, that of witch hazel, a shrub native to eastern North America. Its gray branches, tinged with red

He is a talented athlete and leader. He has been chosen as cross country MVP twice. Somehow between his numerous extracurricular activities and his passion for academic progress, Henry finds time to do a significant amount of community service.

Matt was vice president of DECA his junior year and stepped into the position of chapter president this year. Matt also was a DECA International qualifier last year, taking his sports and entertainment marketing research plan to Nashville, Tenn., to compete. In addition to DECA, Matt also has excelled in most of the business classes offered and is now CEO of Geneva’s Virtual Enterprises firm, which he had to apply and go through a rigorous interview process. Matt stepped into the CEO position with extraordinary vision and passion and has begun to lead the firm of 22 employees with his usual upbeat and motivating leadership skills. Matt has offered to help spearhead the funding and creation of an entrepreneurship workspace at the high school. I have no doubt Matt will continue to do great things.

He is incredibly sincere and authentic and shows a great amount of compassion and respect to everyone around him. I am in constant awe of Nick’s ability to take such a demanding course load while staying involved with extracurricular activities and dedicating so much of his time to help and serve others through various volunteer opportunities. I have no doubt in my mind that his dedication, hard work and perseverance will lead him to wonderful successes in college and in his career.

St. Francis High School: Andrea Vaughn ACTIVITIES: Volunteered time to organizations such as Feed My Starving Children and has helped make care packages for the homeless in Chicago. She also participated in a program called Lose the Training Wheels, a program for children with disabilities to assist in learning how to ride a bike.

Older adults, in particular, should take note if their central vision becomes blurry, hazy, or crooked. These are symptoms of “age-related macular degeneration” (AMD), which is the leading cause of legal blindness among seniors. It is important to diagnose AMD in its early stages to prevent severe vision loss. This eye condition, which involves deterioration of the central portion of the retina (called the “macula”), takes two forms: “Dry” AMD is caused by the formation of waste products (“drusen”) underneath the retina that cause atrophy. The more serious “wet” AMD involves the formation of leaky abnormal blood vessels beneath the retina. Typically, AMD progresses from the dry to the wet form, but some patients present with wet AMD initially. P.S. While anyone may develop either dry or wet AMD after about age 50, the average onset of wet AMD usually occurs in a person’s late 70s to early 80s.

Fishing around for something to do For a teacher, the worst-case scenario occurs when faced with a classroom of students for whom you have nothing prepared. Or, rather, you HAD something prepared, but it fizzled. This scenario plays out even when, or perhaps especially when, relying on technology; even the shiniest stateof-the-art stuff will occasionally play HAL, leaving you destitute outside your lesson plan’s Pod bay door. My most horrific moment occurred not in a class, but in a meeting of Marmion Academy’s bass fishing group when we review recent catches, preview future practices and learn the difference between, say, a Carolina and Texas rig. On this particular Monday, before leaving for a conference, Joe Large, the head coach, asked me, an assistant coach, to lead the meeting. “Here’s an old but really good VHS tape you can show,” he offered. “Can we make sure it works?” Around technology, I’m a “trust, but verify” guy.

THE FIRST

AMENDMENT

RIVER TOWN CHRONICLES Rick Holinger Upstairs, after inserting the tape, we watched the whiteboard stay white. After checking multiple cords and connections, Joe admitted defeat. “Well, you can always show a fishing video on your laptop.” He set out, and I grabbed my laptop. After finding a monster bass YouTube video, I waited for the whiteboard to mirror my screen. However, instead of watching a largemouth lunge for a rubber frog, all I saw was a parody of Kazimir Malevich’s painting “White on White.” Hmm. Now what? In two hours, I’d have 30 minutes to kill without moving pictures. Talking team practices would kill two minutes. Fish Fry fundraiser prep might fill three more. A lecture on different lures, lines and reels, was a fantasy, as the students

knew way more about fishing minutiae than I; it would be like lecturing Brobdingnagians on giants. What could I … was there anything about fishing that … wait …yes! It might work. It had to work! After taking attendance and covering practicalities, I stood before my audience ranging from freshmen to seniors. They waited, expectantly, hopefully. Seeing no open laptop and no lighted projector, they had doubts. They weren’t alone. “OK, guys, today we’re going to do something different.” Eyes lifted from iPads, homework and near-naps. “Huh?” their expressions questioned. “We’re … ,” I fumbled for words and confidence, “going to tell fish stories!” Twenty unbelieving faces stared up at me. “Uh-oh,” I thought, seeing the next 25 minutes stretch longer than an empty two-lane across an endless desert. A hand shot up. James Durant. He

smiled, then shouted, “I’ve got one!” as if he’d hooked a 5-pounder. Sprinting to the podium, he began, “There was this time ... .” More than a dozen stories got told that day. We shared catches and gotaways. We laughed, we clapped, we “awww-ed.” Stories. We all have them. Sometimes it takes a little push – OK, a big push – to leave behind other voices to make known our own. For a few minutes, those young men felt the power of the bard, realized the joy of relating narratives thrilling and poignant as “The Odyssey” or “Beowulf.” Epic.

I don’t know about you all, but I am greatly thankful for the loving, supportive family that I have. I don’t have a massive family with 20 cousins or five aunts and four uncles, but that’s OK. This past Thanksgiving, I was truly able to just admire all the amazing people that I get to call family.

I must say, my grandparents have an interesting little love story. Particularly on how they met.  The two of them met on a train. My grandma and her friends were traveling up to Wisconsin to go on a ski trip, and my grandpa was traveling back to his parents’ house to see his family. My grandpa lived in Ashland, Wis., when he grew up. When he was 19 years old, he moved to an apartment in Chicago by

himself. He paid $7 a week to stay there, and there was only one bathroom that was shared between five other apartments. Sounds like fun, right? There wasn’t enough work in his hometown, so he came to Chicago to work for the company Zenith.   As the two sat on the train, they ended up talking the whole train ride to Wisconsin. Before the ride ended, my grandpa asked my grandma for her phone number. Once they got off the train, they parted ways. After my grandma’s skiing trip, she hopped on the train to head back home to Chicago. Coincidentally, my grandpa also was taking a train back to his new home in Chicago. Perhaps it was fate. They were on the same train car that day, yet they never knew they were until they met up again. It’s stories like this one that always make me excited to get together with

Every year for Thanksgiving my family goes to my grandparents’ house. It’s a small get-together with just my family of five, my grandparents and my uncle. Sitting at the dinner table for Thanksgiving, our conversations included politics, the weather, work, and we all just talked about what was going on in our daily lives. During dinner, I sat next to my grandma, and out of curiosity I asked her how long she had been making Thanksgiving dinner for family. She said that it’s been about 45 years. Just imagine that – that’s 45 years of turkeys. After figuring out that my grandma has made Thanksgiving dinner for that long, I asked her how long she had been married to my grandpa. It was my grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary earlier this month. It always amazes me to just imagine what it must be like

MALE GOLFER OF THE YEAR

Thursday, December 1, 2016 • KCChronicle.com / The Herald

Geneva’s Isenhart earns high honor By CHRIS CASEY editorial@kcchronicle.com GENEVA – Getting someone to talk about their passion can show them in a whole new light. Geneva golfer Tyler Isenhart loves the sport. Outside of his teammates and coach Eric Hatczel he’s seen as quiet, reserved and very soft spoken. But get the 2016 Kane County Chronicle’s Male Golfer of the Year talking about golf and it’s a whole different story. Isenhart just finished his sophomore season at Geneva, which included a jump up to a tie for third place individually at the Class 3A state tournament. “A lot of people see Tyler as that quiet kid, but I honestly see him in a whole different light,” Hatczel said. “If you get him around his teammates or talking golf, he truly loves it and it’s truly his passion. It’s impressive to me as a coach. He isn’t just someone who plays in these offseason tournaments for fun, he loves the game … all aspects of it really.” The 5-foot-7, 130-pound Isenhart isn’t going to blow people away with his driving ability or his stature, but it was his consistency throughout the season that made him difficult to beat. His third-place, two-day total of 4-over 148 at state showed just that. In fact, in the Upstate Eight Conference points given out for each match throughout the conference season, Isenhart lost just two total points (one each to Danny Buetow of St. Charles East and Geneva teammate Spencer Monroe). “I honestly just tried to improve all aspects of my game,” Isenhart said of his jump from 69th place overall as a freshman at state. “Obviously I wanted to work on the physical aspects … hitting a little farther, improve my putting, but I also got much more confident in the mental part of the game. You’re always going to be nervous, especially when it gets to sectionals and state, but I was able to control those nerves much better this year.” In 17 contests this season, Isenhart posted an above-par score just five times, while finishing the season with an average 18-hole score just below par. Geneva finished tied for sixth (625 score) as a team at the state tournament, with Isenhart leading the way

No sophomore slump

Geneva’s Tyler Isenhart hits from a sand trap Sept. 28 during the Upstate Eight Conference golf tournament. Isenhart made huge strides as a sophomore this season, tying for third place in the state and being named the Chronicle’s Male Golfer of the Year. with his third-place score.  It was that same consistency each time he stepped on the golf course – whether he was familiar with that course or not – that allowed Isenhart to avoid any sort of sophomore slump. “He’s just typically very consistent,” Hatczel said. “That’s really the nature of his game. He doesn’t make huge mistakes. Every golfer will have blemishes, but Tyler minimizes them. He also puts in a tremendous amount of work in the offseason, which was very noticeable this year. He’s not the biggest guy out there and hasn’t necessarily grown [in stature], but he’s picked up some distance which has really helped his game.” Some golfers get burnt out with a long high school season followed by a

winter, spring and summer of tournaments and offseason work, but Isenhart knows it will take all of that work to get where he ultimately wants before leaving Geneva. When someone is as passionate about a sport as Isenhart is, they are never satisfied. He knows there are areas he can improve to where he can compete for an individual state title in his final two seasons at Geneva. “It was pretty special to have the hard work I put in pay off this year,” Isenhart said. “There’s always room to improve, honestly. Once you get to state, the top golfers are separated by a shot here or there. Every little detail and every shot matters. I know I have what it takes, and hard work is what’s going to do it.”

HITTING THE COURTS

Area girls basketball teams look to build on recent success

“She has started every game since she was a freshman,” Drumtra said. “I expect Sara to again lead our team in rebounding and be one of our leading scorers. Sara draws a lot of attention from defenses and we hope to better capitalize on that this year.” Point guard Munroe is back to run the offense, Urso returns and should be a solid scorer, DiOrio and Wellman will be key defenders, and Bundy is coming back from a knee injury and should help in rebounding and outside scoring. Newcomers Nicole Jordan, KC Weinzirl, Emily Vitkus, Grace Westerhoff, Taylor Shead and Rose Stackhouse will add depth.

By CHRIS ROLLIN WALKER editorial@kccchronicle.com The girls basketball season is underway, and teams from across the state are playing for a spot in the state finals at Redbird Arena in March. Here is the outlook for Batavia, Geneva, Kaneland, St. Charles East, St. Charles North and other area teams:

Weber is one of several returning Knights expected to contribute this season.

Outlook: The Bulldogs are coming off one of the most successful seasons in school history, but four of the five starters from last season’s team graduated with Foster as the only one returning.  A crew of seniors and varsity veterans will see their roles increase this season. Erickson and Rodriguez are both in their fourth varsity seasons, and they along with Piron will add depth at guard alongside Foster.  King and Lorenz will see plenty of action at forward, and sophomores Geddy Rerko (6-foot) and Ava Sergio (6-1) figure to be key post players. Sophomore sharpshooter Hailey Orman will help stretch the floor and give the posts more room to operate in the paint.

game last season, while Loberg also averaged 10.5 rebounds and Whitley had 2.8 assists per game. “[Grace] will have another great year and she brings so much to our team,” Meadows said. “Margaret ... has grown, she is stronger and her ball skills have improved.” Meadows also has been pleased with how well Hart has looked in the early going. The Vikings will play fast and have the experience to have another great season. “We are athletic, we have playmakers on this team and we will always be looking to improve defensively,” Meadows said.

the cupboard is far from bare. Lockdown defender Morgan Weber and Jenni Weber, one of the area’s top 3-point threats, both return as starters while Modaff got some starts late last year. Martens played behind Conley last year so her role becomes a huge one this winter. “She is one of the best athletes we have in the building,” Colombe said. “We feel she can be one of the best guards in the area if she continues to progress like she has.” Junior sisters Grace Ringel and Addie Ringel saw some playing time as call-ups last year and likely will have bigger roles. Juniors Abby Taylor and Katrina Van Horn are among newcomers who will fight for floor time.

players from last season’s roster,” he said. “This team is looking to build on their experience from last year. We intend to play an up-tempo game to capitalize on our strengths.” With so much experience returning, as well as the addition of 5-foot-11 freshman center Zoe Ketterman, there’s optimism that the Royals will be successful. With Hernandez leading the way and a bunch of scrappy, quick and athletic players around her it only makes sense that Rosary will push the ball.

Outlook: By day, Tomczak is with the Saints since he teaches at St. Charles East. By night, he’s a North Star as the first-year head coach at the school, taking over for Sean Masoncup. “We’ve got a brand new offensive system with an emphasis on up-tempo play style,” he said. “Fans should expect to see us playing with pace and space, taking advantage of transition opportunities.” A lot of those opportunities will run through point guard Quinn, while fellow returnees Sample, Davern, Pozna and Olsem will look to speed down the court and score in transition. With a new coach there will be adjustments, but Tomczak dedicated a lot of time during the summer to getting the team acclimated. Even with a solid core of returnees, North will need newcomers such as juniors Emma Helsel, Megan Gunnink and Kelly Jakaitis to make plays. At 6-foot-3, Jakaitis offers some size. Freshman Jaz Harmon and sophomore Anna Tate both can play at guard and forward.

Outlook: It won’t be easy replacing Canaan Coffey, the conference MVP who led the Bulldogs to an Upstate Eight River championship. They don’t have a player of his caliber but they’ve got a heaping handful of players who are expected to see floor time this year. “We’re looking to be very competitive in a very competitive conference,” Nazos said. “We’re a very deep team. We’re looking to play 10 to 12 guys early on in the season.” A lot of internal battles for playing time should prove interesting, and shared roles are a distinct possibility. Cheaney returns with the most floor experience. Peterson also looks to be a go-to guy after showing some signs a season ago. Oroni and Davis are expected to lead the way at point guard, while Iutzwig, Riley Cooper and Luke Golson also should see time. At forward, a smorgasbord of players are vying for opportunities, including seniors Dietz, Moore, Valente and Jake Robinson among others.

Outlook: Ethan Conroy, Ryan David, Jake Gomes, Mark Lilly and Dylan Vaca were seniors who helped the Knights win 20 games and a Class 3A regional title. They have since graduated, leaving the team with only a few returnees who saw limited action. “We are a young team looking to imOutlook: The loss of Bennett Fuzak prove each day,” coach Conroy said. and Sean Chambers will sting, but “Our three seniors bring leadership. most of the players who surrounded Our juniors were successful as sophoYEAR POS. sr.

mores and they bring energy each day to practice.” The seniors who return played sparingly, as did junior Garrett Hukle. If anything, this is a year of opportunity at Kaneland. Espe and Feiza are going to be asked to step up from the get-go, while allaround athlete Jack Douglas is on the roster this season.

Outlook: On paper, an 18-13 record doesn’t look like much, but several of those wins came as the Saints won regional and sectional titles. Unfortunately, the Saints graduated six players, including three of their top four scorers, but don’t be surprised if they pick up where they left off with a handful of returning players that have improved their games, as well as some newcomers. Hardy (12 points per game last season) and Mitchell (42 percent 3-point shooting) provide a strong nucleus. Kyle, Zylke and senior Kevin Cook, juniors Champine, Isbell and Robinson, and sophomore Nathan Ortiz provide a lot of depth. “Because we had so many injuries throughout last season we’ve got a lot of guys back that stepped up and played minutes due to the injuries,” Woods said.

The Knights lost a slew of seniors from last year’s regional championship team, and Hed is one of the players looking to soften the blow of their departure. them are back this winter. “I think that we should have a pretty competitive team this season,” Ralston said. “We have three returning starters. We have a nice mix of older, experienced players with good young talent.” While former standout Nate Navigato is playing at Toledo, his triplet brothers will have a lot to do with how Geneva plays this year as Cole (5.6 points per game last year), Devin and Dominic (7.6 points per game, 4.4 rebounds, 48 percent 3-point shooting) are all back. Johnston (6.1 points, 3.4 assists), Davison and fellow seniors Jacob Carli and Michael Karas also return. Size comes in the form of 6-foot-5 freshman Nate Santos, 6-foot-5 junior Will Courter and 6-foot-3 sophomore Mitch Mascari, among others.

Outlook: The Cadets counted on point guard Jon Young for so much last season. Filling his void will be a challenge, but with Doroff and Haas returning and a combination of up-andcoming guards the Cadets hopefully will be able to minimize turnovers and create scoring opportunities. Senior Brandon Currie, junior Lucas Wagoner and sophomore Tommy Surges are part of the up-and-coming group of guards. Ideally, 6-foot-9 center Mick Sullivan will get plenty of touches. “We have speed and will look to play a lot of different lineups based on matchups,” coach Currie said. “We have been working really hard at improving our defense. ... We are young on experience so we will have to step up really quick.”

COACH: Tom Poulin 2015-16 RECORD: 8-16

Outlook: Poulin said that he could trust all 15 kids on this roster. Whether or not that trust leads to a winning season remains to be seen, but the approach is a positive one. “We are very fortunate to have a group of 15 team-first players who play the game together very well,” he said. “We have the necessary pieces to be successful and will work each day to be playing our best basketball come tournament time.” One of the keys will be the adjustment of the newcomers. The sophomore team won the Upstate Eight River title last winter, so they’ve experienced winning, but how will that translate to varsity? “Our inexperience and lack of height will be challenges for us to overcome,” Poulin said. “We have to commit to defending and rebounding with passion if we want to be successful.”

FEMALE GOLFER OF THE YEAR

Twice is nice for Furtney St. Charles North sophomore repeats feat in winning award By CHRIS CASEY editorial@kcchronicle.com ST. CHARLES – The bar was set extremely high. St. Charles North’s Megan Furtney dazzled with her golfing abilities as a freshman, so where was there to go as a sophomore? Just another top-10 finish at the state tournament. Furtney, the Kane County Chronicle Female Golfer of the Year for the second straight season, said much of her smooth transition came from her confidence and consistency on the course. “When you come into high school golf, it’s a much different mindset,” Furtney said. “It’s much more of a team sport, so your whole mental mindset changes. The nerves are always there, I feel like, but everyone has bad holes. I think something that improved a lot this year was my mental outlook. I realized that one bad hole isn’t going to ruin your whole round, and I think that really helped improve my mental game and helped me deal with any nerves.” After a fifth-place finish at the Class AA state tournament as a freshman, Furtney’s ninth-place finish this fall was certainly no disappointment, especially considering her 4-over 148 was just one shot higher than her fifthplace effort as a freshman. Now Furtney will continue to work on small details during offseason tournaments and winter trips to Bradenton, Fla., to work with swing coach Tim Sheredy. “It’s just constantly touching up and fine-tuning my swing,” Furtney said. “I’m always wanting to lower my score by one shot here or there, you know. My short game needs improvement, too, and just working out and getting stronger is always something I look forward to trying to do in the offseasons of high school.” For North coach Irish Whalen, who saw Furtney have a nine-hole average of 35 and 18-hole average of 70 this season, there isn’t much the sophomore needs to improve on. Still, Whalen believes the offseason work Furtney puts in is invaluable. “She’s just continuing to get more and more comfortable with the setting and her game,” Whalen said. “Her con-

Furtney notched another top-10 state finish and helped the North Stars to fourth as a team as she was named the Chronicle’s Female Golfer of the Year. trol and accuracy were phenomenal this year. Those shots that were 20 to 25 feet from the pin as a freshman were less than 10 feet at times this year. “Her game is honestly right where it needs to be. Megan will always want to keep improving and that’s great to see in a young golfer. The golfers that beat her downstate played well on those two days. It’s the game of golf, but I think Megan has everything it takes to be right there over the next two years.” It was Furtney’s competitive nature that allowed her to do things such as set an individual North program record at 6-under-par 29 over nine holes early in the year, and lead the North Stars to Upstate Eight Conference, Burlington Central regional and Schaumburg sectional championships. A second straight fourth-place finish as a team at state also is worth mentioning as four of the top six North girls golfers, including Furt-

Tortilla Espanola with chorizo and potatoes (recipe below) became an instant hit – a tasty tapasstyle skillet dish that we will return to again and again. Note the recipe calls for Cuban chorizo, which could be hard to locate. For a viable substitute, Spanish chorizo makes a good stand-in.

Journalist Tom Witom, who lives in Elgin, has written extensively for years about food and the food industry. Contact him at editorial@kcchronicle.com.

Bring medium pot of salted water to boil and add diced potatoes. Cook until just barely tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Drain potatoes and spread them on paper towels to dry completely. Sprinkle with salt. Preheat oven to 350 F. Break eggs into large bowl and whisk until well beaten. Whisk in cream, salt and pepper and set aside. Heat 1/4 cup of vegetable oil in large ovenproof skillet over high heat until shimmering and beginning to give off tiny wisps of smoke. Carefully add potatoes. Fry without stirring until potatoes are brown on bottom, 6 to 7 minutes. Turn potatoes with spatula and allow other sides to brown. Transfer browned potatoes to plate.

Return potatoes to skillet and stir gently to combine. Lower heat to medium-low and pour in egg mixture. Stir to coat all vegetables with egg. Sprinkle peas over top and place whole skillet in oven. Bake until tortilla is set in center, 20 to 25 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting toothpick into center. It should come out clean. Use spatula, loosen tortilla all around edge, then quickly and confidently transfer it to platter. Slice tortilla into wedges and serve it warm or at room temperature.

38 Wife’s job at gym has husband in a sweat Dear Abby: My DEAR ABBY wife and I have been married for Jeanne almost 11 years Phillips and have three children. About four years ago my wife cheated on me and left. After a six-week split, we decided we wanted to work things out. Everything was great – until recently, when she got a job working at a busy gym. Several of the guys from the gym have added her on Facebook and send her messages. They like all her posts and pictures. I work out there and when I go in, I see her laughing and joking with them. This has all started to bring me flashbacks to when she cheated. I tried talking to her about how I feel, but she just says they are my insecurity issues and I need to deal with them. At this point, I’m contemplating divorce so I won’t go through the same pain I went through last time. I check her Facebook page constantly to see if she has added any new guys and see what comments they are leaving. I know it’s not healthy, and it makes me constantly depressed. My wife has no interest in marriage counseling, but tells me I should seek professional help for my issues. Is there any saving this marriage, or is it time to move on? – Threatened in Texas Dear Threatened: Part of your wife’s job is to be friendly to the members of that gym. It doesn’t mean that she’s involved with any of them outside of work. The problem with jealousy and insecurity is that unless they are managed, they tend to feed on each other and grow. While I can’t banish the suspicions from your mind, some sessions with a licensed mental health professional might help you to put them into perspective. It may save your marriage. However, if it doesn’t ease your mind, you can always talk to a lawyer. Dear Abby: I take a maintenance pain pill for arthritis. I count them every other day to make sure that I’m not taking too many. My daughter has been coming to my house a lot lately, and – not every time, but off and on – I’ll count my pills after she leaves, and my count doesn’t match the one from the day before. Sometimes I’m missing almost all of them, but when I talk to my daughter and ask if she took them, she always says she didn’t. If I ask nicely, “Are you sure?” she accuses me of calling her a liar. I know she’s taking them, but I don’t know what to do about her lying to me about it. I really need the pills for myself. The doctor prescribes them only once a month, and I know I’m going to run out. What should I do? I don’t want to hurt my daughter’s feelings, but she needs to stop taking my pills. – In Pain in Kansas Dear In Pain: Your daughter may have become addicted to your pain medication or be selling them to people who are. It’s time to start keeping your pills under lock and key. Once you do, your daughter may be forced to come clean about the lying – or you may find you’re seeing a lot less of her than you presently do. Write Dear Abby at www.dearabby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Wise parents don’t pressure children Dr. Wallace: I’m responding to the girl whose parents are pressuring her to attend the University of Pennsylvania and major in prelaw. Her mother and father are graduates of Penn and both are attorneys. She was happy about being accepted at Penn and wanted to attend, but she didn’t know what her major would be. She knew, however, that she wanted nothing to do with being a lawyer. I’m glad you told her to enroll at Penn and see how things work out, because a college student usually doesn’t have to declare a major until she has finished her second year. Before then, she would take mostly required subjects. I was in a similar situation. Both of my parents are dentists. They met in medical school and were married when they both began practicing dentistry. All I heard when I was in high school was that I, too, was going to be a dentist. Ugh! I detest going to a dentist and I wanted no part of working in other people’s mouths. Well, to make a long story short, I was accepted at the University of Tennessee and enrolled in pre-dentistry. I didn’t do well at all grade-wise and dropped out of the university during my second year. After completing a year at a community college, where I received excellent grades, I enrolled at Memphis State University and graduated with honors. My major was elementary education. I am now teaching third grade and I love every moment I’m in the classroom. My parents are disappointed that I didn’t become a dentist, but if I had, I’d be miserable. Better that my parents be disappointed than that I be

JUMBLE

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace miserable. – Teacher, Nashville,

Tenn. Teacher: Wise parents offer

career suggestions, not pressure. Pushing one’s child into a career she doesn’t like is, quite simply, a flagrant abuse of parental authority. All children should be allowed to make their own career choices. They have a right to live their own lives! I couldn’t agree with you more. Mom and Dad’s foolish disappointment is nothing compared to their child’s lifelong misery. Dr. Wallace: I’m 14 and I’m starting to get pimples. I heard that if you stop eating junk foods, your complexion will clear up. So I have stopped consuming chocolate and all other candy, French fries, and soft drinks. It’s been three weeks, but so far, my pimples haven’t gone away. How long does it take for my pimples to vanish after I stop eating junk food? – Zack, Dallas,

Texas. Zack: Avoiding candy and other

junk foods is great for your health, but won’t eliminate pimples. This common problem of adolescence results from clogged pores, excessive oil in the skin, and other factors, but not what you eat. In the last few years, many medications have become available to help those who suffer from pimples and acne. Have your parents make an appointment with a dermatologist. Your complexion can be dramatically improved. Dr. Wallace : I’m 14 and live

with my parents and my younger sister who is 12. We are both home-schooled because our parents are very religious and insist that we follow everything in the Bible. They do not want us to be influenced by other children at school. We learn a lot with my mom teaching us, but I do wish we could go to school with the other kids in our neighborhood. We do not have a television set in our house because our parents sold our TV set recently because they did not approve of the programs available these days. We used to get to watch some educational and cultural programs, but we can’t do that now. I wish they would get another TV even if they supervise every program every day. How can I convince them that certain programs are educational and worth watching? – Nameless,

Charleston, S.C. Nameless: I definitely can

understand your parents’ objections to many programs that are simply lacking in any redeeming qualities. The violence and sexual innuendoes on a majority of programs make for unacceptable family viewing. However, I would not completely eliminate all programs. There are still many programs that are educational and well presented and worth viewing. My solution would be the same as your idea – to monitor the TV time and allow viewing of certain worthwhile programs rather than ban all TV from the home. Nevertheless, I cannot fault your parents for having a television-free home.

Biomedical science has progressed so rapidly in the past 50 years that we have the power to make major advances. Yet there is not enough money in the budget to fund many worthy projects, slowing progress. Who decides how much money is spent on medical research in our democracy? We, the people. Although today’s column is my last, I’m pleased that three members of the faculty at the UCLA School of Medicine will be starting a new column, “Ask the Doctors,” which will appear in the many papers where my column appears. This closes a circle for me, since I grew up practically next door to that prestigious institution. I want, in particular, to thank Urmila Parlikar, who has helped me to gather and organize information for this column with remarkable skill and dedication. In addition, Alan McDermott and Shena Wolf, the column’s editors, have added elegance and clarity to every column. I will miss you, and miss writing for you. Thank you again for all of your kind words over the years. And goodbye.

Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

ry Seems to Be the Hardest Word,” but for me the hardest word is “Goodbye.” Every goodbye is an ending. Long before life ends, individual pieces of that life end. Many of those little endings are the close of something you cherish – something that brought meaning or pleasure to your life. Today’s column will be my last. I’ve been writing this column for more than five years. At age 75, I’ve decided to slow down. The time required to write a column six days a week, 52 weeks a year, makes that hard. Even though this is the right decision for me, I regret having to make it. Your questions have been interesting and remarkably wide-ranging: “Is it safe to swaddle a baby?” “How does Alzheimer’s wreak so much havoc in the brain?” “When we lose memories, do we lose them forever?” I doubt you assumed I was an oracle who could just write the answer to every question off the top of my head. Indeed, I leaned heavily on the knowledge of many colleagues at Harvard Medical School, and I did my homework. I learned a lot, and I hope I was helpful to you. Above all, I love the process of trying to clearly explain things that can be pretty complicated. I tried to do that for the more than 1,500 columns I wrote. Each one gave me pleasure. And your letters and emails thanking me for my efforts added greatly to that pleasure. Were there any themes that ran through my columns? There were at least two. The first is that, through the lifestyle we choose, we can do more to improve our health than anything our doctor can do for us. For example, through lifestyle we can

Boost home appeal, chances of selling with successful staging SPONSORED BY

There’s more to selling a home than putting a sign out front. Top real estate websites say successful staging can be the key to boosting your home’s appeal and the chances of selling it quickly. Why is staging so important? It brings cohesiveness and style to a room that can relate to potential buyers. Real estate experts on Realtor.com suggest staging bedrooms to convey comfort, relaxation and spaciousness with soft, neutral tones and removing all the furniture other than a bed and dresser. Consider investing in new linens and throw pillows, and clear away clutter, shoes and photos from around the room. Make the closet seem larger by removing half the wardrobe.

For the bathrooms, replace old fixtures and clean mold and dirt from tiles and shower doors. Hang towels that match the bathroom’s color scheme and add spa-like accessories such as candles and soaps. But above all else, make sure to clean, clean, clean the house from top to bottom. Buyers have to imagine themselves living in your home, and they will have a hard time picturing themselves living in a dirty house. Remove mold and mildew, scour away lime stains left by hard water, clean windows inside and out, steam carpets, and wash all linens and curtains, and dust the shades. Smokers and pet owners should be especially vigilant about eradicating those odors. An added bonus to staging your home? It helps with the packing process, which inevitably involves streamlining for a move. Staging also works for vacant homes. Experts in the field say staging key rooms can make for better showing appeal, shorter market time and a higher price.

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

Randy K. Milholland, a web comic author, wrote, “Friendship is being there when someone’s feeling low and not being afraid to kick them.” I hope that Milholland picks the right friend to kick; for some, that would be a bad idea. The psychology of the individual is an interesting subject. North knew not to say anything at the end of this deal. What should South have done in four spades after West led the club ace? North’s three-club rebid was a double negative, showing some 0-4 points. Three hearts, a new suit, was forcing for one round. South could have passed out three spades but could see 10 potential winners in his own hand: seven spades and three hearts. This deal would trip up almost everyone -- and to be honest, 90.4 percent of the time the spades will not be 4-0. The original declarer ruffed the club ace, cashed his spade ace, then took his two top hearts and led another heart. However, West ruffed in and shifted to a diamond. East won with his ace and returned a heart. West ruffed that as well, then cashed the diamond king for down one. Later, North pointed out that it was right to discard a diamond at trick one. (Yes, at double dummy, South could have survived by leading a diamond at trick three, but if hearts were 4-3 and West had only two diamonds, that would not have worked.) Assuming West continues with the club king, South pitches his other diamond. Then East can never get on lead for a trump promotion.

Over the past five decades, Waubonsee has educated more than 290,000 students-but we haven’t done it alone. During this special anniversary year, we wish to thank the many partners who have helped us create brighter futures for our students and the entire community.

CAMPUS CONSERVATION While its official school colors remain vermillion and gold, some might say Waubonsee has gone green-from nurturing the expansive natural beauty of our Sugar Grove Campus to employing sustainable practices within our district and across all our campuses. This month we recognize park districts, forest preserves, conservation and environmental organizations. Together, we preserve the environment for generations to come.
