Traffic study at school deferred until next school year By MATTHEW PIECHALAK mpiechalak@shawmedia.com VILLA PARK – A traffic study intended to assess congestion issues at Ardmore Elementary School in Villa Park will likely be postponed until the beginning of the 2014-15 school year, village and district officials confirmed this week. The Villa Park Village Board unanimously approved a proposal May 12 from Kenig, Lindgren, O’Hare, Aboona, Inc. to conduct the study around the school, 225 S. Harvard Ave. However, the Ardmore PTA and School District 45 officials have requested that the study be delayed until the fall – when car traffic is at a maximum – in order to obtain the most accurate data. “If they did it in September or October or waited until there was snow on the ground, that would be good,” Ardmore PTA President Michele Storck said. “If they could just get it done some time next school year, the PTA would be happy.” A sense of urgency around the traffic safety issue has re-

“If they did it in September or October or waited until there was snow on the ground, that would be good. If they could just get it done some time next school year, the PTA would be happy.” Michele Storck

Ardmore PTA president cently resonated, but conducting the study over the last couple weeks of the school year would not be beneficial because many students have been walking to school, Storck said. “The kids have cabin fever– they haven’t been able to walk (to school) all winter long,” she said. The District 45 administration agrees with the PTA’s request to postpone the study. “We always want the most accurate information,” said District 45 Superintendent Tony Palmisano. Roughly a dozen residents spoke during the May 12 meeting, telling trustees there is a noticeable traffic flow problem around the school, which is evident for roughly 20 minutes be-

fore school begins and another 20 minutes after school is dismissed. Among the claims, parents say motorists block driveways, create their own lanes and turn around in driveways in an attempt to avoid the back-ups that occur as students come and go from the building. The overall concern is that someone will be hurt or killed during the high points of congestion. Along with approval of a traffic study, the village board directed Villa Park Police Chief Robert Pavelchik to increase police presence outside the school twice a day– during the morning and afternoon rush. Motorists are on their best behavior when they see the po-

lice presence, Pavelchik said Tuesday afternoon. “They feel better when they see us there,” he said. “Whether it’s a solution or not, I don’t know.” Pavelchik agrees that if changes are to be made to the traffic flow, a professional study should be conducted, but he added that there are similar traffic issues at every school during arrival and dismissal. “If we start making wholesale changes, that concerns me,” he said. To date, the village and the firm who issued the proposal have not signed a contract, but Michael Werthmann, principal of the company, met with staff and observed the traffic flow on a recent morning, Villa Park

Village Manager Rich Keehner said. “If the study doesn’t get done by the beginning of next school year, we’ll still implement some suggestions,” Keehner said. “We don’t want to go through the opening without having everyone on the same page.” Having the village board actively listening to the school community’s concerns is a “breath of fresh air,” Storck said. “Having the board listen to us is fabulous (but) we didn’t mean for them to drop everything and do it in a week,” she said. “Just please don’t put it off for another 20 years.” Palmisano agreed. “We appreciate any information they can provide,” he said. “From a district standpoint, that’s not our expertise.”

Preliminary numbers show about 90 percent of the class of 2014 at District 88’s high schools, Addison Trail and Willowbrook, has been accepted to a two- or four-year college or university. 2. More students than ever enrolled in Advanced Placement courses this year, which allow students to earn college credit while in high school. 3. So far this year, 68 student-athletes from District 88 have qualified for Illinois High School Association (IHSA) state competitions, and one student-athlete received All-American recognition. In the West Suburban Conference, District 88 has won six conference titles, and 41 student-athletes from District 88 have signed to play their sport at the collegiate level. 4. Our students and staff continue to give back to their communities. They raised more than $50,000 for the American Cancer Society, hosted blood drives to benefit LifeSource and once again participated in the Park Pride Cleanup in Addison and the Salt Creek Cleanup in Addison and Villa Park. 5. We joined together with the county to educate students, parents and community members about the heroin epidemic in the county and state. We hosted a Student Leadership Symposium, where students from 23 schools from throughout DuPage County gathered to discuss how to combat this issue. We also hosted public symposiums at each school. Because of those successes, Addison Trail and Willowbrook have once again been recognized by The Washington Post as two of “America’s Most Challenging High Schools” and ranked in the top 6 percent of U.S. public high schools for 2014. District 88 has been ranked in the challenge index for seven consecutive years, since 2008. The end of the school year is a wonderful time to acknowledge all you do for our students. Thank you for helping us accomplish our mission of working for the continuous improvement of student achievement.

Dr. Scott Helton is the superintendent for DuPage High School District 88.

Billy Coulon grinds on a rail following the completion of a new park at the Iowa Community Center, 338 Iowa Ave., Villa Park, in 2012. The Villa Park Village Board is prioritizing future park improvements.

Now that the Villa Park Village Board has committed funding to developing a parks master plan, it’s on you – the taxpayers – to make sure you have a say in what the plan entails, including scale and costs. We encourage you to get involved in the process! It was a long time coming, but it’s great to see the Village Board finally taking a look at traffic issues around Ardmore Elementary School, 225 S. Harvard Ave. Parents have been vocal for years that something needs to be done, and now it appears it will be.

I was at Lilacia Park this morning in Lombard, and a worker there was spraying the faded tulips (bloom was done) with Roundup (glyphosate). I asked why, and he said it helps them [helps restore color]. Is this really necessary? Do we have to have everything look perfect? Such a beautiful place seems natural, but then you learn they think they have to manipulate things with chemicals. Do we really need more chemicals in our ground, which eventually go into the waterways? Glyphosate has been linked to more than 20 adverse health effects, including birth defects, infertility and cancer.

is, but it needs some attention. Driving across the tracks is very rough, and to watch the cars crossing it reminds one of a boat ride on a lake with high waves as the cars bounce around. I am afraid every time I cross that I will be rear-ended as I coast across the tracks instead of driving across at my regular speed. This situation has been this way too long. The railroad needs to repair the crossing so the cars have a smoother and safer crossing.

No need for library renovation in Lemont I am at the Lemont library on a regular basis for various reasons and agree with others who have written to Sound Off. I love our library and what it offers. But there is absolutely no need for remodeling, additional meeting rooms, computers, etc. Even the funds already spent for analyzing the “needs” was not necessary. The governing bodies of Lemont need to make more frugal decisions with our tax money. If you’re “looking” for ways to spend tax money, it could be better spent elsewhere in our community. I don’t think there’s a need for examples.

On the Opinions page in the May 14 Downers Grove Suburban Life, James Eichmiller shares with us some feelings and findings of the District 58 Technology Program. He said student achievement approved as measured by the math testing. How do we know the improvement was caused by technology? Could good teaching have caused the gain? He then said collaboration, ownership, engagement, staff flexibility and choice also increased. Again, could good teaching have caused these improvements? I am not sure you can state that all of these gains are from a take-home technology program. I am not sure we can afford to give every student a device to use at school and at home. Our taxes are going up, we have pension obligations to meet and we need to show some type of fiscal restraint.

would hear another story and I would make a note of it.” One day, the two veterans sat down with an old cassette player, and Biedermann recorded the stories that would eventually comprise the book. It took Biedermann roughly two years to edit the book, which involved putting the stories into a chronological sequence, careful fact-checking and finding maps and other visuals to illustrate the stories. The book is broken into three sections–Pre World War

II, World War II and Post-World War II– to help the reader understand that all Bigelow’s pre-war experiences helped him survive, and that his traumatic accounts of the war lead to personal choices when he returned to civilian life, Bidermann explained. “As I look back, I realize I never would have survived the war if I hadn’t had some very basic experiences of travel and adventure prior to the war,” Bigelow states in the book’s preface. “American Soldier” begins in Lombard in 1927, where Bigelow describes his childhood growing up in a home next to Sacred Heart Church. The Bigelow yard featured more than

live a unique and exciting life. “I think an important lesson in the book is these servicemen come back and they all have a problem,” Biedermann said. “I think it’s important that he survived that and showed that he did find a way to live peacefully after the war even though he had been through hell.” Along with first-hand accounts, the book contains photocopies of letters Bigelow sent to his father while he was a POW in Japan, including one where he discusses what freedom means to him. “I would love to see every high school kid read that one paragraph,” Biedermann said. For Amy Halm, Bigelow’s goddaughter, the recounts in the book are treasures that everyone should appreciate from one of the most important eras in modern history. “I hope it helps people appreciate older people they know and probe a little bit deeper about their past–military or not,” Halm said. “There is so much treasure in their memories.”

LOMBARD – Returning home from the South Pacific after more than three years in a Japanese prison camp, World War II veteran John Allen Bigelow remembers rolling past Lombard while on a train bound for Hines Veteran Hospital. “Now that was a thrill,” Bigelow recalls in his autobiography. “I told the other guys, ‘Come here, look, that’s where I live’.” The recollection is one of many that Bigelow, who died in 2008, recounts in his autobiography, “American Soldier: A Love Story.” The book, released earlier this month on Amazon, details the life of Bigelow, a world-traveler, military veteran, avid sailor and a Lombardian. The book was edited by Bigelow’s friend and brother-inlaw Leonard Biedermann, also a World War II veteran and a former Lombard resident. “His life was so interesting,” Biedermann, 89, said Monday during a phone interview. “Every time we got together, I

40 lilac bushes. “Our yard was like a park,” Bigelow said. A youth full of pretending to sail ships in the backyard led Bigelow to the Great Lakes and eventually the oceans, where he would spend three years following high school sailing around the world on various vessels. In 1941, Bigelow and fellow Lombardian Joe Korczyk– knowing they would soon be drafted into the military– decided to enlist. Bigelow was stationed in Baatan, a province in the Philippines north of Manila. During a firefight with the Japanese in April 1942, Bigelow was shot in the left leg and eventually captured. He would spend the next three years as a prisoner of war to the Japanese, where he would endure starvation, forcible labor and rampant disease. Once liberated, Bigelow would return stateside, where he would often struggle to find normalcy in the post-war world. Yet despite the challenges, he would meet his eventual wife, Emily, and continue to

Legislators react after judge delays state pension law By NATHAN LURZ nlurz@shawmedia.com The state fight for a solution to its pension problems took another turn earlier this week when a Sangamon County judge decided to delay its latest effort. On May 14, Judge John Beliz ordered a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against the reforms set out in Senate Bill 1, which cuts cost of living increases, lowers contributions required of current employees, guarantees state contributions and raises retirement ages for state workers. There are currently several suits challenging the constitutionality of the measure signed by Gov. Pat Quinn in December. The Illinois Constitution currently states that contractual benefits of state workers “shall not be diminished or impaired.” “This is an important first step in our efforts to overturn this unfair, unconstitutional law and to protect retirement security for working and retired Illinois families,” said Michael T. Carrigan, president of the Illinois AFL-CIO, in a statement on behalf of worker coalition We Are One Illinois. Beliz ruled on a lawsuit filed by the Illinois State Employees Association Retirees and several other plaintiffs. In his official filing, Beliz said that the there was sufficient evidence those named in the suit would “suffer irreparable harm” if the injunction was not issued. Implementation statewide will now be held until Beliz or a higher court decides on the constitutionality of the law. “Obviously we are very pleased that the judge understood the situation that a lot of these retirees were in

and their uncertainty of what was going to happen next,” said Donald Craven, the lawyer for the association. Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office, which represents the state in legal matters, defended the law to the court on May 15 with a formal response. In it, Madigan says the retirement systems “have been underfunded for many years [and] their underfunding now greatly exceeds the state’s annual budget for all categories of expenditure.” Because of the “magnitude” of the pension problem – reaching upward of $100 million in some estimates – she argues that the law is valid. “The goal of the pension reform law is to stabilize the pension system,” Madigan spokesperson Maura Possley said. “Unfortunately this decision will likely further burden the systems and hurt taxpayers.” Legislators contacted after the decision expressed little surprise at the ruling, saying that lawmakers and proponents of the law were expecting a legal fight. House Republican leader Jim Durkin, R-Western Springs, said he was pleased there was movement on the circuit court level, but that the stay shouldn’t be considered a significant legal victory. “We anticipated a tough legal challenge which is why we planned ahead and did not expect to realize any savings in Fiscal Year 2015, so this ruling has no real impact on the budget or pensions at this time,” Durkin said in a statement. “Ultimately, the real question will be addressed by the Supreme Court because whoever is on the losing end of the lawsuit will appeal to the higher court.”

Pedestrian underpass project begins at Metra station LOMBARD – Work is underway on a $9.7 million, multi-entity construction project that will include a new pedestrian underpass and rebuilt platforms at the Lombard Metra Station. A ground-breaking ceremony took place May 14 on the project, which is a joint effort between Metra, Union Pacific Railroad, the Village of Lombard and the Illinois Commerce Commission. The station, 20 S. Main St., is along Union Pacific’s West Line. In March, the Metra Board of Directors approved an $8.1 million contract with John Burns Construction of Orland Park to build the new pedestrian tunnel, retaining walls, ADA ramps, stairways, platform shelters, canopies over inbound and outbound platforms, landscaping and other ancillary items for the station. Lombard will contribute

A construction crew member works near a crossing gate on Elizabeth Street as a freight train rolls past the Lombard Metra Station on Tuesday. A $9.7 million joint project between Metra, Union Pacific Railroad, Lombard and DuPage County broke ground last week, intended to rebuild train platforms and to construct a pedestrian underpass that will connect the station with downtown Lombard and Lilacia Park. $300,000 to fund architectural enhancements to the tunnel, including lighting and aesthetics. In a separate project be-

tween the construction company and Union Pacific, the platforms will be reconstructed at an estimated cost of $1.6 million. The work will

be done in conjunction with the tunnel project. The work is expected to take about 10 months. The station will remain open during construction. The tunnel, to be constructed below the elevated station at grade level, will link the train station to the village’s downtown and Lilacia Park. Roughly 1,300 riders use the station each weekday, according to the Village of Lombard. “It’s going to be a much safer rail crossing,” Metra CEO Don Orseno said. “It’s huge for us and it’s huge for this community.”

MYSTERY DINER Restaurant reviews

Sushi House’s signature selections on a roll DOWNERS GROVE – Good sushi restaurants can be hard to find in the Midwest. It’s usually not a matter of technique, but freshness. Even the best restaurants can sometimes fall short because they don’t have access to high quality fish, obviously the key component in a dish that often consists of only raw protein, rice and seaweed. The Sushi House in downtown Downers Grove proves a worthy entry on the suburban sushi scene. Its interior hearkens very much to the classic sushi setting – serene design, occasional pieces of Japanese artwork on the walls, and the sushi chef station right at the center of the action. At a cursory glance, the menu is also fairly traditional – the typical, three- or four-ingredient basic roll, sashimi and nigiri on one side and the flashier rolls on the other. There also are a number of regular entrees, including a couple of intriguing bento box combinations. To experience the full gamut, our table ordered the lunch combination and one of the fancy rolls. The combo included a basic tuna roll and spicy salmon rolls, as well as a cup of miso soup. The tuna had good texture, but my preference was the salmon. It melted in your mouth, while a nice bite of cucumber added a refreshing crunch to the wrap. The spicy mayo was understated. Looking at the “signature rolls” part of the menu was overwhelming, but in the best possible way. I always feel a little intimidated by the depth of ingredient options at whatever sushi restaurant I am at – Sushi House’s 2011 Roll alone is topped with four different kinds of caviar. There always seems to be a hint of a dare contained in that half of the menu. As if the sushi place is saying, “You want to get your socks knocked off? Here’s the best we got. Try to not enjoy eating these rolls.”

Sushi House, nestled in downtown Downers Grove, offers a diverse menu of both basic and intricate sushi offerings, as well as several options for those who aren’t fans of raw fish.

Sushi House offers plenty of creative options, including the basic and delicious tuna roll. The Spicy Angel Roll was a delightful indulgence, marrying zesty fla- meaning Sushi House won that particular dare. vors with quality seafood. I decided to go with the Spicy Angel Roll. When it came to the table, I was appropriately impressed. When I put it in my mouth, I was giddy. The roll had it all – tempura shrimp, octopus, tuna, scallop and avocado. Inside was some of the spicy mayo I had wanted more of in the salmon roll, providing a creamy and lightly spicy base. Alongside the fish in the middle was a

small line of roe for a nice salty snap. On top was a sweet and smokey sauce and pickled jalapeño. All together, it came out hitting multiple levels of spiciness without overwhelming the seafood flavors. It was definitely the dish that drove me from contentedly full to stuffed, because I just needed to have those last two pieces. It completely elevated the meal from solid to very good,

Adding to the comfortable ambiance, the server was attentive without being pushy – stopping by to refill my water and take my order when I closed my menu. The restaurant also gets a special shout-out for having real pickled ginger, the spicy white version instead of the tame and tangy pinkish stuff most places put out. It’s a small thing, but makes a big difference. It also has a patio that looks amazingly appeal-

ing, and will only look better as the weather improves. All in all, Sushi House is a nice experience with good to very good food offerings. I would love to return and let the signature roll menu continue to bowl me over.

Willowbrook junior Sam Schmidt connects on a home run in an April 9 game against Wheeling. Schmidt has 11 home runs on the season.

Hammer time By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com VILLA PARK – A year ago, Willowbrook softball started a tradition built around a hammer and is hoping it can bring the team some luck in the postseason. The Warriors carry around a hammer in the dugout, and coach Rachel Karos even sports a hammer T-shirt at games to reinforce the mantra. Willowbrook is hoping they can bring down the hammer like Thor in the postseason. “It’s been our kind of religion the last two years,” Karos said with a laugh. “That’s something we came up with last year. Last year, we really had a breakout

We got to bring it back.” A recent slump toward the end of the regular season means the Warriors are looking for a way to reinvigorate their cause. Willowbrook gave up seven runs in the top of the seventh inning in Monday’s 7-4 loss against District 88 rival Addison Trail and lost to West Sub-

urban Gold champ Downers Grove South 9-1 the next day. Still, the Warriors brought a 17-9 record into Thursday’s game at Montini. “I think we came off a good week last week, and now we’re just struggling to get it together this week offensively,” Karos said. “Defensively, we can always do better. I think we feel like it’s snowballing. We’re not responding well to the pressure of it.” On the offensive side, juniors Sam Schmidt and Alyssa Ressinger continue to carry the team. After Tuesday’s loss against DGS, Schmidt had 11 home runs, and Ressinger is right behind with eight after homering against the Blazers.

Leadoff hitter Zoe Dannenberg homered to score Willowbrook’s only run and break up Caroline Hedgcock’s no-hitter in the sixth inning in the loss against the Mustangs. The internal competition between Schmidt and Ressinger helps keep a fire under both of them, but it’s not just about homers with those two. “They’re also really good on-base hitters,” Karos said. “First in doubles and all that stuff. I think sometimes they think when they’re not hitting [home runs] they’re not doing so well, but that’s also part of you don’t always get the good pitches when you kind of put a target on your back. “It’s nice having them com-

pete with each other because they get along really well, but they’re on each others tails all the time.” Willowbrook finishes the regular season with a doubleheader Saturday against neighborhood rival Glenbard East. Then they open the postseason against Fremd in a regional semifinal. “I think we have an opportunity to compete,” Karos said. “Obviously, we have some strong teams in our regional and we would love to take one of those, but what we got to work on this weekend is getting our confidence back up and remembering that we’re a good team and that we deserve to be out there with anybody.”

BASEBALL PLAYOFF PREVIEW

The baseball postseason is right around the corner, and the ultimate goal is to make it to the state finals June 13 and 14 at Joliet’s Silver Cross Field. Here’s the outlook for York, Willowbrook, Montini and other area teams:

Addison Trail Regional: Hoffman Estates Sectional: Schaumburg Sectional seed: No. 18 First game: 11 a.m. Monday vs. No. 16 Hoffman Estates Outlook: After an 0-6 start in the West Suburban Gold and 2-15 start overall, the Blazers have shown great improvement throughout the season and went on to finish 7-11 in the WSG. Pitcher Joe Kurucar helped to spark the turnaround with three straight WSG shutouts. The Blazers open at Hoffman Estates for a regional quarterfinal. The winner faces No. 2 St. Charles East.

Outlook: Montini is in a tough Class 3A sectional with the likes of Nazareth, Clemente and Benet. The Roadrunners have won five straight sectional titles, Clemente beat the Broncos 9-3 on May 3 and Benet shared the East Suburban Catholic Conference title. In order to get to those teams, Montini likely will Bill Ackerman - backerman@shawmedia.com have to get past Glenbard Addison Trail’s Mike Rybarczyk makes the force out play at second South in a regional final.

Rothmund crushed the ball this season, and pitcher T.J. Case allowed one earned run. That duo, along with a tal-

ented supporting cast, makes Willowbrook a tough out in the playoffs. The Warriors, who finished third in the West Suburban Gold at 11-7, open with a rematch against York, which knocked them out of the playoffs last year.

York Regional: York Sectional: Schaumburg Sectional seed: No. 8 First game: 4:30 p.m. Thursday vs. No. 9 Willowbrook Outlook: The Dukes are one of the hottest teams around, winning the final nine conference games to share the West Suburban Silver title. York recovered from a slow start to the season behind the pitching of Anthony Santos, Seth Dvorak and Alex Pedote. Santos also has been the Dukes’ top hitter. Willowbrook, the Dukes’ first-round opponent, beat York 7-6 April 24. The winner likely faces top seed Batavia in the final.

SOFTBALL PLAYOFF PREVIEW

Trip to Peoria: The goal for York, Montini, other area teams By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com Softball diamonds around the state are about to be busy with postseason games as teams vie to make it to the state finals June 13 and 14 at Peoria’s EastSide Centre. Here’s the outlook for York, Willowbrook, Montini and other area teams:

Addison Trail Regional: Addison Trail Sectional: Bartlett Sectional seed: No. 13 First game: 11 a.m. Monday vs. No. 20 Larkin Outlook: The Blazers’ winning record this season is a huge step considering they won just two games two seasons ago. AT is hoping to show improvement in the postseason, as well. Senior pitcher Crystal Marinelli will be key, both

pitching and batting as she is nearly hitting .500. The regional quarterfinal against Larkin gives the Blazers a great opportunity to win the program’s first playoff game since 2009. The winner gets No. 4 St. Charles North on Tuesday.

Glenbard East Regional: Hoffman Estates Sectional: Bartlett Sectional seed: No. 17 First game: 4:30 p.m. Monday at No. 15 Lake Park Outlook: The young Rams team finished 1-13 in the DuPage Valley Conference. As a result, East opens in a regional quarterfinal at Lake Park. In the regular season, the Lancers edged the Rams 8-7 May 2 and 7-6 May 19. Dana Camp homered and had four RBIs in the May 19 game.

Montini Regional: Aurora Central Catholic Sectional: Glenbard South Sectional seed: No. 1 First game: 4:30 p.m. Tuesday vs. No. 16 Hancock/No. 17 Bogan Outlook: The Broncos’ powerful offense has staggering numbers. As of Wednesday, Montini was hitting .361 as a team with 25 home runs. Those numbers helped Montini win the Suburban Christian Blue with a perfect 16-0 record. Riverside Brookfield or Aurora Central Catholic awaits in a regional final while St. Francis is a potential sectional semifinal opponent.

Timothy Christian Regional: St. Francis Sectional: Glenbard South Sectional seed: No. 12 First game: 4:30 p.m. Wednesday vs. No. 5 Evergreen Park Outlook: The Trojans have been

led by junior Kaitlyn Gehrke, sophomore Kaylee Biscan and freshman Marian Robinson, who are all hitting above .300. Timothy could see No. 4 seed St. Francis if it wins against Evergreen Park.

Willowbrook Regional: Rolling Meadows Sectional: Bartlett Sectional seed: No. 9 First game: 7 p.m. Tuesday vs. No. 8 Fremd Outlook: Power hitters Sam Schmidt and Alyssa Ressinger can turn around a game with one swing, but the Warriors probably will need a number of big hits from the junior duo this postseason. The Warriors open against Fremd, which has won six straight regional titles. Willowbrook last won a regional in 1993. The winner likely faces top seed Glenbard North.

York Regional: Evanston Sectional: Trinity Sectional seed: No. 1 First game: 4:30 p.m. Tuesday vs. No. 14 Evanston/No. 17 Lake View Outlook: The Dukes will travel north for the regional and will do so as the top sectional seed. York’s regular season wasn’t as dominant as hoped after returning almost all of a team which was fourth in Class 4A a year ago. At 7-5, the Dukes finished third in the West Suburban Silver. DePaul-bound center fielder Angela Scalzitti and power-hitting sophomore Abby Solem give York plenty of offense. Pitcher Brooke Bandy, who was the No. 1 pitcher in the postseason last year, returned Saturday after missing most of the season with an injury.

Often on Memorial Day, you will see many flags out on homes and businesses, and in cemeteries and on gravestones of those who have served their country. Have you ever wondered what the stars and stripes of the U.S. flag means? Take a look at the picture for some details.

it is not known exactly why the red, white and blue were chosen, but some people think the colors were taken from the Union Jack flag of England.

The stars are white, behind the stars is blue, and the stripes alternate red and white, beginning with red at the top. When the Continental Congress created a seal for the United States, the colors were described by Charles Thompson, secretary of the Continental Congress, in this way: “White signifies purity and innocence, red, hardiness and valour, and blue ... signifies vigilance, perseverance and justice.”

The 13 red and white stripes are for the 13 original colonies. The flag features 50 stars, one for each of the 50 states.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

TIP OF THE WEEK

Diet trend offers healthy benefits One particularly healthful diet trend is the Mediterranean diet, so named after the tastes and habits of the people living around the Mediterranean Sea. People in Europe — especially those in Spain, Italy and Greece — generally are healthier than Americans. Their diets, interestingly enough, are high in salt. Olives, for example, can only be consumed if they’re soaked in salty brine for weeks. Feta cheese is cured and stored in salt brine. Capers, anchovies, codfish and roe are all Mediterranean staples routinely packed in salt. Don’t forget all the famous salt-cured meats such as jamon serrano, prosciutto, salami and various sausages. Olive oil is the anchor of the Mediterranean diet. No other natural oil has as much monounsaturated fat. When drizzled on salads and vegetables or grilled fish, it adds a pleasing aroma and texture. But olive oil by itself is somewhat bland and is always accompanied by liberal amounts of salt. Yet the people of the Mediterranean, who enjoy all these foods, have the world’s best cardiovascular health. The diet is so healthy that the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute used it as a model in its famous DASH Study (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension), which confirmed that the Mediterranean/DASH diet was healthier than the typical American diet and efectively reduced blood pressure. Americans who believe they need to follow a low-salt diet may hesitate to explore the Mediterranean diet. Before turning your back on the Mediterranean diet and all its proven health benefits, discuss the option with your doctor. The Mediterranean diet has proven its worth for centuries.
