After moving more than half a dozen times, the Glenbard East High School graduate became a homeowner in 2009 through DuPage Habitat. Habitat’s Veteran’s initiative helps alleviate the shortage of quality housing that often directly affects veterans. The house on Ridge Road was one that Jarosy had previously driven by, and

VILLA PARK – Proudly surveying her new living room Monday evening, Beth Jarosy tried to put into context the vast changes that had recently occurred in the common space of her Villa Park residence. “Everything in here is better than I ever would have dreamed,” she said with an excited smile. Jarosy, a U.S. Navy veteran, was the recent recipient of a living room makeover courtesy of a partnership between Fox Valley ReStore and DuPage Habitat for Humanity, as well as designer Kevin Grace and the team at ABC 7’s Windy City LIVE. ReStore, a nonprofit organization that raises funding and collects donated housing materials to support Habitat for Humanity, initiated the makeover idea with the goal of giving back to a local veteran, said Randy Hamann, general manager of ReStore. Working in conjunction with the DuPage chapter of Habitat, the organizations eventually chose Jarosy, who served as an information systems technician from 1996 to 2004. Unbeknownst to her, Jarosy was surprised with the makeover news on a Veterans Day episode of Windy City LIVE, a daytime talk show featuring hosts Val Warner and Ryan Chiaverini. Grace, whose segment, “Kevin Grace, Save My Space,” has been a feature on the show for the past year, said Jarosy was the perfect person to honor. “She is a veteran, but she

Michael Pearce of Wood Dale demonstrates some of his karate techniques, including the snake, Tuesday at NEDSRA in Addison. Erica Benson - ebenson@ shawmedia.com

NEDSRA athlete earns black belt, confidence Michael Pearce completes 10-year quest for black belt By MARI GRIGALIUNAS mgrigaliunas@shawmedia.com WOOD DALE – Ten years ago, Sensei Michael Pearce took his first karate class through Northeast DuPage Special Recreation Association (NEDSRA). Last month he earned his black belt. “We’ve been practicing blocks, kicks, punches and other stuff,” said Pearce, 35, about preparing for his black belt test Nov. 16. In humble fashion, Pearce didn’t brag much about his accomplishment, but the side smile on his face said it all. Dressed in his gi and black belt, Pearce demonstrated some of his karate skills with NEDSRA Recreation Coordinator Paul Fasano a few weeks after the big day. NEDSRA, located in Addison, works with area park districts and municipalities to provide recreational opportunities and community services to individuals with disabilities. Pearce’s training at Sensei Steve’s Karate Center

in Villa Park focused on defensive moves and stances. Under Sensei Larry Elmore, Pearce and fellow NEDSRA participant Yvonne Blais of Villa Park received their first-degree black belts after an hour-long test of their skills and knowledge. With his black belt, Pearce is now a sensei. A third NEDSRA karate participant, James Woods, 65, of Villa Park, earned his second-degree, or nidan, black belt the same day. While the karate center does not usually allow spectators for testing, Nov. 16 was different. Pearce was lucky enough to have family and friends around to support him, and they all celebrated the participants’ success with a cake cut by a samurai sword. “They were excited,” Pearce said about his family and friends who watched him earn his black belt. Blais’ mother, Sue Martellotta, Administrative Services Manager at NEDSRA, explained that the black belt test consisted of not only

physical tests, but questions that each participant need to answer in English and sometimes Japanese about the history of karate. “I was so incredibly proud,” Martellotta said. Pearce grew up with two older sisters and two younger sisters. When the four girls began dating and going to parties, Pearce found his place in sports. A loyal Cubs fan, Pearce loves to watch baseball. The sports fan plays everything from bocce ball to track and field. When he isn’t playing or watching sports, Pearce works at Jewel-Osco collecting carts, a job he’s held for 10 years. In addition to the skills he’s mastered like the double push down and crane pose, Pearce said he’s learned other life skills like confidence and respect through Sensei Elmore’s instruction. Even though he loves other sports, Pearce is committed to developing his karate skills. As one of the first NEDSRA participants, Pearce doesn’t see his black belt as the end of his karate journey. He plans to pursue his second-degree black belt next when the weekly karate classes begin again in January.

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps Bakery offers free cupcakes to be Aware of Weeks Before for December birthdays Listing Your Home for Sale By MARI GRIGALIUNAS If you go mgrigaliunas@shawmedia.com

Elmhurst - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether. In

most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for, and knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled “11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection” has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free 1-888-760-3069 and enter 1003 You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Get your free special report NOW to learn how to ensure a home inspection doesn’t cost you the sale of your home.

ELMHURST – Edriss Alexis has played his signature blue acoustic guitar for patrons of the Courageous Bakery in Elmhurst a handful of times since February. Less than a year after he first stepped into the bakery dedicated to raising funds and awareness for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Ride Janie Ride Foundation, Alexis wanted to say thank you to the bakery. “I’ve gotten to know the people,” Alexis said. He approached bakery owner Laura Pekarik and offered to play a December concert and buy everyone whose birthday was the same day as the concert a cupcake. “I was just thinking with the holidays coming…I figured I would reach out to her and her customers,” said Alexis, a Park Forest musician. Pekarik appreciated Alexis’ offer, but decided to take it one step further and offer everyone with a December birthday a cupcake on the house Saturday, the day of Alexis performance. “I think it was a great gesture to offer to pay for the

She started Cupcakes for Courage after he sister, Kathryn, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin T-cell lymphoma in 2010. After baking cupcakes for a benefit in her sister’s name, Pekarik saw the popularity of her little desserts and decided to put them to work. The Cupcakes for Courage food truck, also dubbed the green machine, hit the streets of Chicago in 2011, and the Courageous Bakery store front opened in Sept. 2012. “We do what we can,” Pekarik said about the bakery’s efforts to engage the community through artists like Alexis or story book readings or other events.

Jarosy’s first reaction: “Is this my house?” “I was just speechless,” she recalled Monday. “It’s beautiful, I would never have imagined any of this.” For Jarosy, the best feature of her family’s new living room is the organization. “I’m very grateful for my home, but it’s not a huge home and the living room and kitchen is our hub – it’s where we spend most of our time,” she said. “I wanted a space where we could be a family and not be on top of each other.”

PREADOLESCENT ACNE While it was once thought that the lower end of the age range for adolescents to begin experiencing pimples was about 12, acne is now common in children ages 7 to 12. Faced with this new reality, a team of physicians has formulated new guidelines that they hope will lead to a better age-appropriate standard of care for children as young as 7. While most acne drugs are prescribed off-label, there is one exception in the form of a gel with a retinoid and benzoyl peroxide that the FDA recently approved for use in children as young as 9.

Q: A:

Ask a Pro With the winter weather switly upon us, do I need to worry about frozen pipes? Frozen pipes start to wreak havoc when temps hover around or below single digits for an extended period of time. Drats also expedite freezing conditions as well.

Although it can be diicult to prevent frozen pipes from all areas of the home (especially those with limited or no access), there are some precautions you can take. Never shut of the thermostat, even if the home will be unoccupied for an extended period of time. Make sure all garden hoses are disconnected from outside faucets. If you have plumbing above or adjacent to a garage, avoid keeping the door opened for extended periods of time.

Mike Borowski Vice President

If you have water lines running through a cabinet to a faucet on an outside wall, you may want to leave the doors open to allow warmer air to circulate. Inspect for draty areas of home (typically in basement) and provide adequate insulation. Homes that have plumbing on outside walls or plumbing that overhangs beyond foundation are especially susceptible to freezing. It may be necessary to allow a trickle of water to run out of these ixtures to prevent water from freezing. If you leave any water running, be sure that the drain to that ixture is lowing properly so it doesn’t overlow if let unattended. If pipes in your home do become frozen, it is not a good idea to leave unattended. When water freezes, it is not uncommon for the pipes to split open if the frozen water has nowhere to go. Once thawed, the split in the pipe can leak water under pressure and cause extensive damage in a short amount of time. If the above items don’t prevent or solve your frozen pipe dilemma, it is best to call a professional plumber who can thaw the lines and who is prepared to repair any leaks that arise.

Elmhurst man runs 100 miles for cousin By MARI GRIGALIUNAS mgrigaliunas@shawmedia.com ELMHURST – Paul Krauter of Elmhurst never ran more than a few miles until two years ago. When his cousin, Tom Verachtert, who was diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) four years ago, and his wife, Dawn, heard that Krauter planned to Paul run two marathons and an Krauter ultra-marathon in three months in an effort to raise money and awareness for ALS, they were shocked. Dawn Verachtert said they were very touched, but also surprised because until a few years ago, Krauter wasn’t known for his athleticism. Yet, on Dec. 7 he completed a 50-mile ultra-marathon. After reading Running on Empty by ultra-marathon runner Marshall Ulrich just because he thought it looked interesting, Krauter felt inspired. He soon fell in love with the solitude running provided him. He used the time to decompress and think. His cousin’s condition weighed on him. “ALS is just such a God-awful disease,” Krauter said. “You almost feel hopeless.” Krauter knew that many people run to raise money and awareness for various causes, but he wanted to really make a difference for those

with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. “I don’t think people realize there’s no medication out there for ALS,” Krauter said. Dawn Verachtert explained she feels many people don’t focus their support on ALS because there isn’t a cure. If someone made a new discovery or breakthrough, it might draw attention; but for now, the Les Turner ALS Foundation provides support for the Verachterts. Krauter thought if he set an ambitious goal, he might be able to raise more money and educate more people about ALS, a terminal neuromuscular disease that attacks a person’s muscles. Krauter committed to running three long-distance races totalling more than 100 miles as part of the Les Turner ALS Foundation’s Run for ALS. He began in September with the Advocate Dryer Fox Valley Marathon, then the October Bank of America Chicago Marathon and just completed his goal with The North Face Endurance Challenge in San Francisco. “I still can’t believe I did it,” Krauter said. The final race was an ultra-marathon measuring 50 miles but also included large elevation changes on a dirt trail course that overlooks the Pacific Ocean at times. Although Krauter knew it would be the most difficult of

ment. He was forced to retire at 44 because of his declining health. Dawn Verachtert said the Les Turner Foundation has helped her family in many ways, from providing clinics where she can bring her husband to see multiple doctors in one visit to in-home nurse visits. And foundation grants have helped them purchase items like the $15,000 DynaVox machine. She said she’s grateful for the financial and in-person support the Foundation has provided, and for Krauter’s dedication to helping the cause. “It’s really nice that there’s another person to help you,” she said.

Verachtert, 47, reads constantly but now uses his DynaVox to read electronic books since he’s no longer able to hold books and turn pages. He also loves to play opponents from all over the world in online chess. “If you saw our family room it has two gigantic book shelves all full of the books he’s read,” Dawn said.

Still, he finished in 12 hours and 45 minutes, including an accidental fourmile detour, and raised about $2,700 for the Les Turner Foundation. Most importantly, he wants to run another ultra-marathon. “So much of it is your attitude,” Krauter said. That positive attitude must run in the family because his cousin, who now uses a wheelchair and relies on a device called a DynaVox to communicate, has quite the sense of humor.

MAKING THE MOST OF WHAT YOU HAVE Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of permanent impairment of reading and fine vision among people aged 65 years and older. It results from changes in the macula, the portion of the retina responsible for clear, sharp vision. Early symptoms of the disease range from an inability to see details or vivid colors to distorted vision in which objects appear to be the wrong size or shape and straight lines appear wavy or crooked. While there are procedures for staving off vision loss, ultimately the disease can lead to complete loss of central vision. In this event, there are visual aids available for enhancing remaining peripheral vision. They include high-powered spectacle-mounted lens systems, magnifiers, and telescopic lenses for distance viewing. Because people 65 and older are an increasingly larger percentage of the general population, vision loss from macular degeneration is a growing problem. Experience, commitment to technology, and a genuine concern for patient welfare enable all of the doctors and highly qualified staff at SKOWRON EYE CARE to work together to consistently deliver quality, affordable eye care. To schedule an appointment, please give us a call today. At Skowron Eye Care, our mission is your vision. P.S. “Low vision” means that even with regular glasses, contact lenses, medicine, or surgery, people find everyday tasks difficult to do.

Addison businesses come together for Toys for Tots By MARI GRIGALIUNAS mgrigaliunas@shawmedia.com ADDISON – Last year, a group of Addison businesses joined forces to celebrate their families, customers and community. This year, though, they saw the opportunity to do more than just celebrate. “We figured with the holiday season gifts are in order,” said Francesco Cacucciolo, managing broker at Infiniti Real Estate Group, Inc. in Addison. During this year’s 2nd Annual Holiday Appreciation Party, Infiniti Real Estate and STC Capital Bank asked guests to bring new toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.

The food and drinks were provided for party guests by the two closely related businesses, but the presents were all for children who might otherwise have nothing to open Christmas morning. “This year we did it a little differently than last year and invited Toys for Tots.” Cacucciolo said. Between about 120 guests, about 150 toys and nearly $500 were donated to the Toys For Tots program. U.S. Marine Don Kenyon awarded STC and Infiniti with a plaque from Toys for Tots. After this year’s success, the pair plans to continue the Toys for Tots tradition next year.

Firefighters enjoy wheelchair basketball at NEDRSA NEDSRA recently hosted a wheelchair basketball game between our Junior Bulls team, ages 12 to 19, and the firefighters of the Addison Fire Protection District. I had met Deputy Chief Joe Leone at an chamber of commerce meeting and he was gracious enough to offer his agency’s services for any fundraising help. COMMUNITY He told me to contact VOICE Roger Bayne of the Addison Bruce Firefighters Association, who ended up organizing the Flowers firefighter team. Ten guys volunteered to “These guys volunteered play the 40-minute game and another 20 people, a mix of their free time to support family and other firefighters, came out for the game. NEDSRA and ended up The Jr. Bulls team was having a tremendously excited to have some strong competition. They are curfun evening.” rently preparing for the national wheelchair basketball tournament in the spring. Adam Kramer, the Jr. Bulls coach, has done a great job increasing the skill level of the team as they are currently ranked 11th in the nation for their division. As a sports competitor myself, I know that you get better at your game when you play tough competition. However, what I observed that night was the firefighter team having a blast playing basketball in wheelchairs. They were laughing and joking with each other and it became a real team bonding event for them. They weren’t very coordinated at first and were down by 14 points on the scoreboard, but that didn’t matter. As the game went on, they did get better. The point I want to make here is that these guys volunteered their free time to support NEDSRA and ended up having a tremendously fun evening. This happens a lot when volunteering to help disabled individuals. I have seen it. So thank you Addison Fire Protection District for your support. I know you had fun. Check out pictures from the game at our NEDSRA Flicker account.

Willowbrook’s Brian Johnson looks to pass against Addison Trail this season. Johnson put up prolific passing numbers this season, including throwing for a state-record 675 yards against Lyons Township.

The awards just keep on coming for quarterback Brian Johnson. The Willowbrook High School senior recently was named the Suburban Life all-area MVP after throwing for 3,291 yards and 31 touchdowns in 10 games. He also earned all-state honorable mention and was the West Suburban Gold conference MVP. The holiday spirit is alive in Villa Park. Braving freezing temperatures during the annual Joyful Traditions event Dec. 7 at Ruggard Gazebo, residents enjoyed horse-drawn sleigh rides, the Christmas tree lighting and, of course, a visit from Santa.

For Cacucciolo, using the holiday party to give back to the larger community was just one example of how he and Vito Roppo, vice president of home loans and sales manger at STC, have worked together to help clients for years. “We started out as friends,” Cacucciolo said. After seven years working together to help clients find and purchase homes, Roppo and Cacucciolo see the annual holiday party as an opportunity to thank their clients for their business. “It takes a lot to buy a home these days,” Roppo said.

Split the pot also helped raise the monetary donation to Toys for Tots. Since last year’s 80-person turn out, the event’s popularity has grown. “People are asking us all year about coming to our events,” Cacucciolo said. Just like he and Roppo are friends, they’ve built a relationship with many of their clients. The real estate company and bank want to show their appreciation for those relationships by celebrating the holiday season with them. Roppo said he especially likes bringing together the people they’ve been able to help buy homes together in the same place. “My favorite part is just getting everyone together,” Cacucciolo.

VILLA PARK – A decoy coyote statue was recently placed outside Jackson Middle School, 301 W. Jackson St. in an effort to deter the geese that populate the school grounds. Area school districts and golf courses have used decoy coyotes as a way to deter geese from assembling. The strategy typically manages the situation, but doesn’t prevent it, according to School District 45 officials.

8SOUND OFF Grateful for neighbors My husband and I want to publicly thank our neighbors for all their concern and support during the past few months. After my husband’s stroke in July, we have been amazed by the help we’ve received getting groceries, bringing over food, taking out the garbage, putting the newspaper by the door and phone calls to make sure we’re OK. A perfect example was after our snow fall Sunday, we had three different people clearing our driveway. It reminds us that despite the weather, Obamacare and all the troubles we all face, there is so much to be grateful for – and we are. Merry Christmas!

Some homeowners negligent This is in response to “Rake your leaves.” Everyone sees the negligent homeowner who doesn’t collect leaves. They’re also the same ones who don’t mow their lawn regularly, have weeds and dandelions, never shovel the sidewalk and driveway all winter, their cars are in the streets, preventing the snowplow from clearing the street properly. These are homeowner duties. If they don’t like to do them, move to an apartment. I would like to see a village code against negligent properties.

Tip mail, newspaper carriers I think tipping [is important] for the holidays for people like the postal carriers and the newspaper delivery people. I always make sure that I even give the substitute mail carriers some kind of tip during the holidays. I make sure that the cards that are left by the Suburban Life carrier and the Tribune newspaper delivery people get a tip. After all, they���re working hard in the cold and the heat.

was put in jail. It would find that he was put in jail because he was fighting the oppressive white government that were against the blacks of the country. It was called apartheid.

Taxes too high I’m sick and tired of the school system raising our taxes. Older people on a budget should be left alone. Enough is enough.

Shirking obligations A major airline carrier declares bankruptcy and cheats its pilots and staff out of their retirement benefits. Then, it emerges as a new improved airline merging with another, gets a fresh start, while the others that they’ve left behind have to struggle. The state shirks its pension obligations on its employees, and it’s literally going to declare bankruptcy, like the city of Detroit, leaving everybody behind while they get to start fresh. Is this the way our government and our country is meant to be running things?

A take on taxes Regarding the recent chatter about the “temporary” Illinois state income tax becoming permanent as a hidden element of the so-called pension reform package, was anyone except politicians, their public relations mouthpieces, their army of consultants and various camp followers ever naive enough to really believe that Mikey Madigan, [John] Cullerton

and [Pat] Quinn were actually going to roll that tax back? And the “promised” spending restraint, which is a foundation of the reform? The only certainty here is that once the pols in this state have your money, not only will it be spent, in a short time they’ll be weaseling for more.

A changed man This is has been bothering me all week, and this is my rebuttal to the article “Mad about Mandala.” Nelson Mandala was a militant youth. He paid for his behavior, learned and grew, and left prison mature. When he changed his thinking, he changed his nation.

Fury over felines I am especially upset to see owners letting their cats out in freezing weather, not being concerned about whether or not they may suffer frostbite or possibly freeze to death. And there are so many more reasons to keep a cat indoors. Indoor cats do not get hit by cars, procreate causing an overpopulation of cats (which may end up in shelters and potentially euthanized), create problems with neighbors, get lost or stolen. Bunchers are people who sell cats to labs for animal experimentation or research. Other people steal cats for use as bait for training fighting dogs. Outdoor cats can contract fleas, worms, ringworm and ticks and can get diseases from other cats such as Feline Leukemia, Infectious Peritonitis,

Distemper and FIV (Feline AIDS). Indoor cats are safe from wildlife, dogs and human abuse. It also is hard to monitor cat’s urinary tract and bowel health. I don’t know if people are unaware of the dangers or just don’t care. Please keep cats safe indoors and share this information.

Exempt business, too? People are complaining about having to pay the Downers Grove rain tax on their own homes and share the rain tax that exempt churches could pay on their buildings and parking lots. If the churches are exempt from the rain tax because they do a good things for the village, I say make all the businesses in Downers Grove exempt from the rain tax as well. After all, they provide jobs for many village residents and help the economic recovery. Actually, we could probably do without church buildings and parking lots and meet in homes like the Amish do. But the village’s many businesses are already paying much needed tax money and are irreplaceable as employers.

Removing trees costly To the person who complained about the ash removal in Lemont, the village is doing everything it can to remove the infected trees. And the so-called cheap homeowners? Well, I’m on a fixed income, living alone and a senior. The cost of removing a tree can range from $1,000 to $2,500. It is more than my monthly income. Plus, people with families can’t afford this either.

Danger of coyotes Why do you think those missing pet posters are hanging up all over town? Coyotes – why the debate? They are not indigenous to this region. They are predators and scavengers. They carry disease and can attack and even kill cats, small dogs and children. They’re dangerous vermin that should be eradicated immediately. Not trapped but humanely killed. It sounds radical, but how many attacks will it take? Your pet or child could be next.

I know by the time you get this letter it will probably be after the deadline for December 4th, I’m sorry it’s late, and you don’t have to read this or write back. I’m sure you are extremely busy, especially around now, and I don’t mean to bother you or take up too much of your time. For Christmas, there’s really only 2 things I would like to please ask for, first I would like to please ask to have my best-friend Aaron back, but I know that is probably, well, very impossible thing to ask for and to receive, because he lost his battle with cancer. He was all I had. And secondly, I would also just like to please ask that my family simply could have a very nice and happy Christmas this year. But I know how crazy this time of year can get for you, and there are far many more deserving, and less fortunate kids out there whose wishes should be granted before mine; so if you can’t grant mine please don’t worry, it’s alright, I won’t be mad. But thank you for listening though! Oh dear, and I am very sorry this is over 50 words! Anyways, take care, and your family, elves and reindeers! And fly safe! Merry Christmas Santa! Brooke

Restaurant reviews

The Chew Chew tracks all the right notes RIVERSIDE – There are restaurants and then there are neighborhood institutions. The Chew Chew in Riverside is the latter. On a recent night, The Chew Chew was full of locals: a gathering of schoolteachers, buddies grabbing a burger and catching a Bulls game, and even a village official out for a quiet dinner with his wife. The presence of locals at The Chew Chew is unsurprising, because if you ask anyone in Riverside where to head for dinner, this place makes the list. The Chew Chew serves the community in multiple contexts. The menu references awards for best neighborhood joint; food-focused social media websites rate it highly as a spot for locals and visitors alike; and the restaurant regularly gives generously to local causes and nonprofits. Just like Riverside itself, The Chew Chew is full of history and local mythology, and is, in a word: classic. That’s not bad for a place founded in 1996. But enough about all that; let’s talk food. The Chew Chew’s menu strikes a nice balance between bar food and a higher end steakhouse. An $11 burger sits comfortably on the menu next to mid-priced pasta dishes, $30 steaks and rotating market fish. But with a twist, the menu also offers items not regularly seen on suburban menus, such as escargot, pate and zucchini pickles. To get started, I ordered baked onion soup and one of the night’s specials: duck pate on crostini (toast) with pickled onion and crumbled, hard-boiled egg. The soup arrived first – hot, but not boiling – with a crispy layer of Swiss cheese sitting atop croutons floating on pure onion goodness. On a frigid night, it was the perfect first course to beat the chill; a good balance of broth and onion – hearty without being heavy. About the time I was fin-

Stumped for a gift idea? Give the power to change the world (BPT) - Every year, office or classroom gift exchanges, thank you tokens for service providers, and last-minute items for acquaintances that drop in unannounced leave many Americans wrestling with a burning question: What can you give for $25 (the ubiquitous price point for this type of gifting)? How about the chance to help change the world? Microlending is the practice of making small loans to entrepreneurs in developing countries. The borrowers use the money - as little as $25 - to expand their businesses, educate their families and improve their communities. Now, it’s possible to give everyone on your list a gift card that will allow them to make such a loan. For roughly the price of a designer scented candle, you can give someone the chance to make a tangible, quantifiable, powerful difference in the life of people around the world. How it works By going to www.kiva.org/gifts, you can choose an amount, purchase a Kiva Card and select the delivery option that works best for you. Print it yourself and keep some cards on hand for drop-in guests. Or, send it via Facebook, email or U.S post to recipients anywhere in the world. Recipients redeem the Kiva Card at Kiva.org by selecting the specific borrower who will receive the loan. The website provides detailed information about each borrower and how he or she will use the loan to build their business and create opportunity for their families and communities. It’s possible to find borrowers who appeal to the passions of virtually every gift recipient. If your giftee is a foodie, perhaps she’ll choose to give her loan to a beekeeper in Kenya or organic coffee farmer in Mexico. If the card recipient believes in promoting green energy, he may choose as his

beneficiary an entrepreneur who brings solar power to a region of Tanzania where there is no electricity. Have an art or craft fan on your gift list? He or she may choose to lend to a weaver who supports his family and preserves an ancient art form through the products he weaves and sells. The gift that can truly keep on giving The benefit of a Kiva Card doesn’t end with the satisfaction of having helped others. Kiva borrowers have an impressive repayment rate of nearly 99 percent. Neither the lender nor Kiva makes any money

from the loan. Once the borrower repays the $25 loan , your gift recipients can either reclaim the cash value of the card to spend on a gift for themselves, or they can opt to reinvest the money and make a new loan through Kiva. As they relend their money to another borrower on Kiva, your initial gift of $25 has the potential impact of hundreds of dollars. The recipient could continue to reap the spiritual rewards of giving for years after receiving your initial gift. To learn more, or to start giving Kiva Cards, visit www.kiva.org/gifts.

Ways your family can give back to the community, country and world this holiday (BPT) - The holiday season is a time when people are looking to give back. Sometimes this giving back encompasses spending time with others in the community, and other times it is showing support for programs that give back across the world. Families can get involved in giving back this holiday season in many ways, involving all members - from your newborn to great grandma. Here’s how: * Support companies that give back. Families with infants and toddlers may not realize that the Bumbo products they purchase not only solve every day parenting challenges, but they also give back to children in need. In fact, a portion of proceeds from every Bumbo product purchased worldwide supports the underprivileged and special needs children in the company’s hometown of Pretoria, South Africa. Since

2005, the company has donated more than $10 million back to the local community through the Bumbo Cares non-profit program, providing food, shelter and education for more than 1,200 South African children. Products that give back include the Bumbo Floor Seat and accessories - the perfect first seat for babies; the Booster Seat, Step Stool and Toilet Trainer. You can learn more about how Bumbo helps the children of Pretoria at www.BumboUSA.com/BumboCares. * Organize a collection drive. Children love to help other children, and they can do that by participating in a drive. If there isn’t a clothing or food drive already happening in your neighborhood, consider organizing one yourself. Find an organization in your community that helps children and ask what donations are needed. Advertise when you’ll be holding the drive with letters

or postcards to neighbors. On the day of the drive, help your children and their friends collect the donations, and then take everyone with you to deliver the donations to the organization. Take a photo of the drop off and submit it to the community paper to commemorate the work the youths put into the effort. * Participate in a community kitchen, clean-up or build. These are activities everyone in the family can participate in. Contact your local government office to find out when the next community clean-up day is scheduled. If you have younger children, ask to be assigned to a park or quiet road. And if you have older children who are able to participate in a community kitchen or build project, consider donating your time there. It will be a project they can reflect upon years

later - reminding them how they cared and contributed back this holiday season. * Visit those who are homebound during the holidays. Sometimes the best way a family can give back is by visiting those who aren’t able to get out of the home very easily. Contact a local nursing home or your religious center to ask if your family can sing holiday carols, bring treats or just come over for a talk. All it takes is a bit of time, which often is a great way to give back. As your family gets ready to celebrate the holidays this year, remember these tips of lending a hand, organizing a drive or supporting companies, like Bumbo, that give back. There are always opportunities where your entire family can pitch in to help the neighborhood, community, country and world.

Gifts for foodies guaranteed to leave taste buds dancing (BPT) - Between the growing trends of boutique restaurants, creative home cooking and entire television networks dedicated to food, you probably know a few people who consider themselves “foodies.” Whether they love craft beer, decadent chocolate treats or gourmet cheeses, you can find many great gift ideas for people passionate about food and drink. Make their holiday extra bright by indulging their interests and exploring some of these top trends in food-related gifts.

Himalayan salt

Himalayan salt is a trendy and truly unique gift for salt lovers and gourmets. The hard mineral composition means this particular type of salt can be carved into a variety of useful items, such as a Himalayan salt block ideal for serving warm grilled meats or chilled for serving sushi. Gourmet chefs at home can infuse food and drink with a subtle hint of mineral-rich salt, adding a unique layer of flavor. Himalayan salt is also touted as a healthy, natural source of sodium by many health experts.

Personalized stoneware

Winter days call for warm baked goods, whether it’s a classic casserole or rich homemade pie. Cooks and bakers love to personalize dishes with updated versions of classic recipes, adding herbs and spices for extra flare. And when that dish is cooked in customized stoneware, there’s no mistaking who created the culinary masterpiece. Personalized stoneware is gaining popularity; by adding a name or special message, you’re giving a gift that’s truly one of a kind.

here to stay. There are more breweries in the U.S. than ever before, and beer connoisseurs are even picky about the mug they drink it in. Craft beer enthusiasts know that one of the best ways to enhance your drink is to use the correct glass. Glass sets make great gifts that are not only useful, but can serve as a beautiful display in a bar or kitchen when not in use. For example, beer lovers will enjoy a multiple glass beer tasting set. Be sure it includes glasses like a hand mug for light ales, footed glass for wheat beers and pale lagers, and an English pub glass for dark English ales.

Gourmet goodies

Unique gourmet treats are sure to impress even the most refined palate. From handdipped Champagne strawberries from Shari’s Berries, to gourmet caramel apples and cake pops, tantalizing temptations appeal to anyone with a sweet tooth. Gourmet popcorn and fruit baskets make great gifts for food lovers too, and combining a few fe special treats eats in a gift basket is a fun way to present their favorites.

Made in the USA

Things made in the USA embrace the idea of “home is where the heart is,” while providing quality goods that last the test of time. Patronize boutiques that feature local artisans, or when shopping online, look for the location where the item was created. For example, RedEnvelope’s animal wood cutting board comes in pig, cow, rooster and chicken designs - ideal for any chef all made in the USA.

Grill mania

Sweet and salty treats

Flavor fusion is featured in some of the nation’s most popular restaurants, but home chefs are enjoying these taste mash-ups, too. One classic blend that has been gaining popularity is salty and sweet combos. Gift ideas that feature this ultimate mix include gourmet dipped pretzel rods in various types of chocolate. Sea-salt adorned confections are another popular option - look for caramels and truffles sprinkled with sparkling sea salt for the perfect salty and sweet pairing.

Glass sets for beer aficionados

It’s official - the craft beer movement is

Both men and women are refining their grilling skills by cooking dishes in their favorite barbecue style - and winter isn’t stopping them. Indulge their passion with a grilling gift that features some of today’s top spices and sauces. Trending spices of the year include turmeric, juniper, smoked paprika and galangal, a Thai ginger. Does your favorite griller like some heat? Add in some Sriracha or Korean chili paste for that spicy kick foodies are looking for. Cheer your favorite foodie with a gift that’s sure to please. These top trends in food- and drink-related gifts will stand out from the others under the tree.

Get crafty with edible holiday appetizers (BPT) - Don’t worry, Mom. In this case, it’s OK to play with your food. The latest online social media craze features awe-inspiring galleries of edible art, showcasing everyday ingredients transformed into munchable holiday masterpieces. This season, whether you’re looking to revamp the relish tray or simply keep the kids occupied with a fun project, a few holiday-friendly staples are all you need to let your creativity take flight. Take, for instance, California black ripe olives. Known for their versatility and mild flavor, black olives are a party favorite for a reason. And with 95 percent of the nation’s ripe olives grown on family farms in California, they’re a truly all-American ingredient, too. They’re also the perfect building block for edible holiday treats. Get in on the fun with an easy and adorable-to-look-at recipe that uses black olives, cream cheese, pretzels and a few other common ingredients to create an unforgettable herd of holiday cheer. In fact, this is one reindeer game anyone can play. For more holiday recipe ideas featuring California ripe olives, visit www.calolive.org. California Olive Reindeer Makes 8 reindeer Supplies: 2- 4 Won ton wrappers Cooking spray 2 Sandwich-sized reclosable plastic bags 4 ounces cream cheese Scissors 8 colossal California Black Ripe Olives 8 large California Black Ripe Olives 1 bamboo skewer 16 pretzel sticks Paring knife Tiny pieces of carrot and raisins Powdered sugar (optional) Kale (optional) Mushrooms (optional) Directions: With a small, sharp knife, cut wonton wrappers into “antlers.” Place on a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes at 350 F, or until lightly browned. Place cream cheese into two sandwich-sized reclosable bags. Snip 1/8-inch off the corner of one and 1/16-inch off the second. With the bag and the 1/8-inch hole, squeeze cream cheese into colossal olives. Using a bamboo skewer, make a hole in the large olives. Break a pretzel stick in half and press into hole and into colossal olive. Press together to form the head. Make four holes in the colossal olive with a bamboo skewer and push four broken pretzel sticks in to form legs. Squeeze cream cheese with the small-hole to form eyes. Make tiny slits with a paring knife in the top of the head and insert wonton antlers. Make a hole in the large olive (head) and insert a small sliver of carrot for the nose. Use a small piece of raisin to create pupils. To create a winter setting, dust kale leaves with powdered sugar and snip the tops off mushrooms to simulate large boulders.

Reflection during the Holiday Season Five simple ways to find deeper meaning in everyday life (BPT) - Turbulent, fast-paced, chaotic - the modern world is increasingly hectic. From this oft-crazy environment, a new movement is emerging - where people are pausing to find deeper meaning in everyday life. Self-empowerment and true emotional connections can counterbalance daily stress and uncertainty, providing happiness and a genuine sense of worth. If you find the days seem to slip away and life’s hurried pace to be draining, it’s time to find some simple ways to add meaning to your life. Here are five ideas for nurturing a deeper connection with yourself and others:

traveled to West Africa at the age of 17, and volunteered in a school for blind children. The experience led her to found Samasource, a nonprofit organization that helps individuals living in poverty. Janah recalls that “[Volunteering in West Africa] was a time of incredible personal growth and it set me on the path to do what I do.” Whether you choose to help stock a local food shelf, supervise at your children’s school or travel abroad to help build houses for the poor, volunteering is sure to make you feel more connected with the world around you.

1. Reconnect with your passion

Modern life can be very busy with every hour in every day dedicated to some activity. This can take its toll on your body, so it’s important to remember to take care of yourself, even if you’re taking care of others. Find your own way to relax and rejuvenate. This may be spending a few minutes each day balancing the mind and body through stretching and meditation. It might be taking a quiet walk, reading a book or having a cup of tea while journaling. Whatever you prefer, make sure to take “me time” throughout the day.

Did you enjoy painting when you were younger? Have you always wanted to take a photography class? Do you love to travel? It’s important to recognize and nurture those activities you love most so that you’re able to go out and do what you’re great at in the world. New York-based yoga instructor, Tara Stiles has infused her passion and energy into her work as a yoga, meditation and wellness instructor. “Passion is really about going after what you want to achieve in your life,” says Stiles. Whether it’s cooking, writing or gardening, make time for what you enjoy doing, rather than just doing what you have to. Even one hour a week dedicated to your passion will make you feel more centered and grounded.

2. Express ress your individuality

Individual beliefs and values make us each unique, and you can express those ideals through your fashion and jewelry choices. For example, the new Pandora Essence Collection is more than just a beautiful bracelet. You Yo can select from 24 hand finished charms, each representing inner-values like faith, fa love, ve, courage, confidence and wisdom. Each charm slides effortlessly into position on a slender silver bracelet, thanks to three silicone grip stoppers inside each charm. Whether for yourself or a gift for a loved one, the bracelet is the perfect reminder of what’s really important in life.

3. Give back

4. Find “me time”

5. Be an ambassador for your beliefs

What truly ignites your soul? It may be your passion for green living, healthy eating or your faith. Whatever your beliefs, it’s important to show the world who you are and what you believe in. Penelope Jagessar Chaffer, an award-winning filmmaker, shares her beliefs and connects with others through her work. “I’m always trying to find that common thread between myself and someone else when I’m interviewing them,” Chaffer says. “I find that love, and talking about love, is this thing we can use to help connect us.” Talk about your beliefs and values with others; you might be surprised by what you find. Rather than getting swept away in a hectic schedule, try focusing on what truly matters to you. These simple ways to add meaning to your life will help you reconnect with yourself and with those around you.

end of unwanted or simply unneeded gifts, why not donate them to someone else? Many organizations accept donations, including clothing and other belongings year-round. Consider donating that extra toiletries set, scarf or books to charity to clean up some clutter and help brighten someone else’s day. Put cleaning staples to work: You may think you need different cleaning products for different jobs, but just one classic cleaning product - Clorox Regular-Bleach - can tackle more messes than you think from laundry to helping sanitize and disinfect countertops, dishes and everything in between. For example, you can even use bleach to kill odor-causing bacteria left in your refrigerator after that big family meal and leave it smelling fresh and clean. Remove food from the fridge and wash the surfaces with a solution of 1/2 cup Clorox Regular-Bleach per gallon of soapy water. Let it stand for five minutes, rinse and then air dry for a few minutes before replacing the food. For more uses, visit www.BleachItAway.com. Organize holiday decorations: Before putting away decorations, invest

in better organization and storage materials. It may take a few more minutes to put away lights if they are wrapped around a spool, but consider how much faster it will be to hang them next year. By spending a few extra minutes this year, you will save yourself the stress in the future. In addition to these tips, remember to embrace the funny moments that come along with the mess. No matter what you’re celebrating this holiday season, no one is immune to messes, and the holidays are rife with them from dinnertime spills to that family member who enjoyed a bit too much eggnog. Instead of letting the messes get you down, take a moment to step back and enjoy the happiness of family visits and the extra time together. But because the messes will happen, remember to laugh at them. You can also share your best holiday messy moment at www.BleachItAway.com for a chance to win $20,000. In addition to great prizes, you can also find more of the know-how you need to tackle your holiday spills and houseguests (plus some laughs to get through it).

(BPT) - The holidays bring plenty of cheer and the arrival of family from all over. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, after all. But with family visits and hearty meals also comes a big share of messes. After hefty helpings of gravy and chocolates, there will be plenty of cleaning required to get your home back in tip top shape for the new year. It’s enough to leave anyone “holidazed,” but with the right tools and tricks on your side, it does not have to. Here are some tips to help get your home clean again after those pesky holiday messes so all you have to worry about is enjoying the season: Create smaller tasks: Create a master list to help you break down cleaning into manageable chunks. Instead of tackling a full mess in one room, only to start again in the next one, complete the same task in each room. For example, dust every room before hitting them all with the vacuum. With this approach, you’ll see a cleaner home in no time without making too many trips back and forth from the broom closet. Donate unused items: With the holidays come gifts and housewarming presents. If you are on the receiving

Holiday Sale “Where wishes do come true”

Five reasons why scent is important for home decorating (BPT) - Cooler temperatures, dwindling daylight that makes you crave a mood boost, and the approach of the holidays - at this time of year, many inspirations prompt people to redecorate. But

MORE THAN A TRADITION

while you’re breaking out the holiday decorations or looking for just the right shade of yellow to make your kitchen look brighter on short winter days, don’t overlook another powerful decorator’s trick - scent.

 1. Essential oils can make your home more beautiful. An inviting, coordinated scent is as important to the look and ambience of your home as the color, finishes and furnishings you choose.  2. Essential oils are the perfect holiday home decoration. Scent is an inspired enhancement to your holiday home. Essential oils come from plants such as balsam fir boughs, fresh pine needles, peppermint leaves, cinnamon bark, vanilla beans and clove buds. Or, seek out pure, natural products like Aura Cacia’s Uplifting Candy Cane room spray, crafted with essential oil of peppermint and the essence of real vanilla beans.  3. Essential oils can make you happy in your home. Use scent to boost your mood when the post-holiday letdown, colder temperatures and the dwindling daylight of winter set in.  4. Essential oils can make your home healthier. Instead of reaching for a bottle of that blue stuff that smells like - well, window cleaner - try making your own glass cleaner from four tablespoons of vinegar and 12 drops of lemon essential oil.  5. Essential oils can help you sell your home. An atmosphere scented with natural essential oils is more appealing to buyers than a cloyingly sweet artificial scent and may be the subtle trick you need to boost a sale.

Five simple ways to find deeper meaning in everyday life traveled to West Africa at the age of 17, and volunteered in a school for blind children. The experience led her to found Samasource, a nonprofit organization that helps individuals living in poverty. Janah recalls that “[Volunteering in West Africa] was a time of incredible personal growth and it set me on the path to do what I do.” Whether you choose to help stock a local food shelf, supervise at your children’s school or travel abroad to help build houses for the poor, volunteering is sure to make you feel more connected with the world around you.

Modern life can be very busy with every hour in every day dedicated to some activity.

This may be spending a few minutes each day balancing the mind and body through stretching and meditation. It might be taking a quiet walk, reading a book or having a cup of tea while journaling.

Expect a shootout when Bears face Eagles Hub Arkush

Why does it feel like the Browns were the Bears last exhibition game and now things start for real? Because the Browns are one of the weaker teams in the league this year. With Philadelphia this week and the Packers to close out the season, it’s almost as if the Bears will have to win two playoff games just to get to the playoffs. The Eagles figure to show up angry this Sunday after getting upset at Minnesota last week to snap their five-game win streak and lose the chance to open up a two-game lead in the NFC East. Like the Bears, Philadelphia is 8-6 and vying for first place in their division, but would lose a tiebreaker if they don’t win out. Also like the Bears, they control their own destiny. They play Dallas,

the club that owns the tiebreaker over them, the final Sunday of the year. There’s a very good chance none of that will matter to the team that loses this Sunday night’s prime-time showdown between the Bears and Eagles. In addition to being in a very foul mood, the Eagles still are one of the hottest teams in the league, having won five of their last six and seven of their last 10. They will test the Bears on both sides of the ball. Philadelphia is eighth in the NFL in points scored, second in total offense, 10th throwing the football and – oh no, woe is me – they are first in the league running the ball and in average gain per run. In case you haven’t heard, the Bears are dead last in the league defending the run. LeSean “Shady” McCoy leads the NFL with 269 carries for 1,343 yards, a 5.0 average. He has a long of 57 and seven rushing touchdowns. He leads second-place Adrian Peterson by 122 yards. And for some inexplicable rea-

herma Tru Doors

son, Eagles coach Chip Kelly elected to give the ball to McCoy just eight times last Sunday in Minnesota while throwing it 48 times, so he should be well-rested. The Eagles offense didn’t take flight until second-year pro Nick Foles was installed at quarterback. He’s now the NFL’s top-rated quarterback with a 117.0 rating, 23 touchdowns and just two interceptions. That ranks him significantly ahead of fellows named Manning, Rodgers, Brady and Brees, to name a few. We beginning to see the potential for trouble here? DeSean Jackson is having an All-Pro season, outpacing Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery with 75 catches for 1,275 yards, a 17.0 average and nine touchdowns. Riley Cooper has become a force as well with 743 receiving yards and seven touchdowns, and rookie Zach Ertz is emerging lately with four touchdowns. Fortunately, the Eagles aren’t near

as impressive on defense, ranking 17th in points allowed and 30th in total defense. The Eagles are 16th against the run and just 31st against the pass. Can anyone spell “shootout?” The Eagles don’t rush the quarterback particularly well, nor do they do a great job protecting Foles, having allowed 39 sacks while notching 32. The Bears, on the other hand, have protected very well, allowing only 24 sacks all year. But they have managed to get to the opposing quarterback only 26 times. Big plays will be huge in this one as well, as the Eagles are seventh in the league at plus 9 in turnover/takeaway ratio, while the Bears are 10th at plus 6. The real difference between these two clubs is that the Eagles can hammer you with the run or pass, while the Bears can run but are more dependent on the pass. The Eagles also are stingier giving up points. Throw in one of the rowdiest home crowds in the NFL, and the Bears have their work cut out for them.

Did anyone else lose in the fantasy playoffs because Ray Rice decided not to score a 43-yard touchdown on the final play of the game? Ouch. Well, I guess it serves us right for starting Ray Rice. Week 16 is the championship round for many fantasy leagues. If you are fortunate enough to remain alive, here’s a look at the fantasy potential of select NFL games.

Must-start: Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant, Jason Witten Solid Play: Dan Bailey Last Resort: Terrance Williams, Austin Miles Avoid: Dallas defense Redskins (vs. Cowboys), noon Sunday The Cowboys’ defense is equally pathetic. Kirk Cousins should be able to have some success in this game.

The Lions still are playing for a division title, and they should roll in this game.

Willowbrook’s Molly Krawczykowski (left) and Olivia Domin pressure Morton’s Shannon Fricke in Tuesday’s game. Willowbrook won to remain undefeated for the season.

Warriors still perfect going into tough stretch By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com VILLA PARK – The Willowbrook girls basketball team has raced out to a 10-0 start, but that undefeated record will be tested before the end of the year. The Warriors extended their season-opening winning streak with a 63-37 win over Morton on Tuesday. Next up is a non-conference game against Sycamore tonight before the Warriors head to the Bill Neibch Holiday Classic at Wheaton North. The holiday tournament should pro-

Willowbrook 63 Morton 37 Warrior scoring leaders • Sam Schmidt, 11 points • Molly Krawczykowski, 9 points • Olivia Domin, 9 points • Jada Stills, 7 points • Danielle Velasquez, 7 points • Lauren Carroll, 7 points

vide multiple games against quality opposition, something the Warriors haven’t seen a lot of outside of games against St. Joseph and Proviso East.

“We have a pretty tough Christmas season,” coach Terry Harrell said. “My personal goal is to try to get to the final of the Christmas tournament. “I’m looking forward to that. Let’s see how we respond to that [competition] and how our bench responds to that because our bench hasn’t had a lot of pressure.” Eight of Willowbrook’s 10 wins so far have been by 20 points or more, so the bench has seen plenty of playing time. Against Morton, 10 different players scored and just one player reached double figures.

That one player, junior Sam Schmidt, scored 11 points and grabbed seven rebounds. The forward is a softball player who has committed to Northern Illinois. Schmidt and fellow softball star Alyssa Ressinger have been key players inside as rebounders on a guard-heavy team. As soon as Willowbrook grabs a rebound, players like Molly Krawczykowski and Olivia Domin are quick to look for a transition basket. “We’re not really a big team so we run a lot,” Schmidt said. “We all like each other. It’s a fun team to play with. We like

playing together.” Harrell complimented the play of Ressinger and sophomore guard Danielle Velasquez off the bench. “Velasquez has been really good coming off the bench,” Harrell said. “She gives us a change of pace because typically we have pretty good size guards. Dani is a smaller guard, she gets up under people. She gets pushed around a lot. She’ll learn not to get in those positions as she gets older, but she’s a good guard. She’s really good for us for a sophomore. We haven’t had a sophomore in a while.”

Holiday tourneys proving grounds for Montini, Willowbrook SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA Holiday basketball tournaments are nearing and area girls teams will have something to prove. Willowbrook and Montini have ambitions of winning their tournaments while Addison Trail hopes to get a confidence boost at Riverside Brookfield. Glenbard East played Glenbard North Thursday but will not be in action again until Jan. 7.

Willowbrook Tournament: Bill Neibch Holiday Classic Location: Wheaton North High School, 701 W. Thomas Road, Wheaton First game: 9 a.m. Monday,

Dec. 23 vs. Glenbrook South What to watch: The undefeated Warriors head into Wheaton North with something to prove. Despite being the only undefeated team in the bracket, Willowbrook received the No. 3 seed behind Hersey and Downers Grove North. Molly Krawczykowski has been a dominant player for the Warriors, but Olivia Domin and Sam Schmidt, among others, have also contributed to Willowbrook’s early season success. The first round opponent is Glenbrook South, a traditionally strong program that is going through a bit of a down year. The Titans enter

St. Charles Road, Elmhurst First game: 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 26 vs. Riverside Brookfield What to watch: Many of the young Rams have found the varsity level a tough adjustment. The youth of this Glenbard East team is both its main reason for early season struggles and the best reason for optimism the rest of this year and in the years ahead. After playing at Proviso West last year, the Rams shift to the newly-expanded 32-team Jack Tosh Holiday Classic. The list of teams may not be quite as daunting as what Proviso West brings, but there are plenty of solid teams here that will test the Rams. RB could be one of the favorites to win thanks to its combination of senior talent and height.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

Montini win sets up showdown with IC SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA

Timothy Christian | Senior | Basketball Why VanderBrug was selected: VanderBrug scored more than 20 points in three Trojan wins over the last week. He averaged 25 points and nine rebounds. Timothy Christian senior forward Connor VanderBrug has been a scoring machine for the Trojans so far this season. The Calvin College commit entered Tuesday’s game against Riverside Brookfield averaging 20.7 points and 9.7 rebounds per game. VanderBrug, the Oak Trust Credit Union Athlete of the Week, spoke with sports reporter Dan Santaromita about the team’s hot start. What’s been working for you this season?

What did you try to improve

I was just playing a lot. I played with my travel team, the Bulls/Sox Academy team, and was just getting more experienced with a faster-paced game.

With all that family history, was it much of a decision? It still was. I still had a tough time deciding with a couple schools that could give me a little financial help. I just felt comfortable at Calvin.

Do you have any goals going forward? First it would be a conference championship. Our conference has been dominated by Riverside Brookfield recently. We’re off to a good start.

East girls put one in DVC win column By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com LOMBARD – Most basketball teams spend the holiday break playing at a holiday tournaments but not the Glenbard East girls. After yesterday’s game against Glenbard North, East is off for 18 days before playing rival Willowbrook on Jan. 7. “We got some practices going on,” coach Don Finnie said. “We gave the kids some

time off because it’s such a long break between our next game.” The Rams beat Naperville Central 49-40 on Dec. 12 to snap a long losing streak in the DuPage Valley Conference. East went winless in the league last year and matched last year’s regular season win total (two) in the process. “We’ve been in a lot of ball games,” Finnie said. “We just haven’t hit a lot of

shots. “Against Naperville Central, the shots fell and we played well.” Before Thursday’s game against Glenbard North the Rams had three losses by single digits, but hadn’t been able to close the gap for a win since the season opener. Sophomore Brasia Solid led the Rams with 18 points and junior Allison Hansen scored 15 against the Redhawks.
