SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA WESTMONT – The Westmont Park District’s 2013 Polar Express was another sellout this year, as a train packed with families on Saturday headed to the North Pole for a visit with Santa. Children heard the holiday story of “The Polar Express”

by author Chris Ban Allsburg before boarding the train to the North Pole (the Aurora Depot). During the visit in the North Pole, children met Santa and his elves with some holiday entertainment and refreshments. The event kicked off at the Westmont Centre, 1 S. Cass Ave.

The Osika family of Westmont eagerly awaits the arrival of The Polar Express train.

D-201 officials say pension reform will ‘damage’ education By KRISTIN PEDICINI kpedicini@shawmedia.com WESTMONT – In the wake of the massive pension reform law signed Thursday, the Westmont Teachers’ Association stands behind the Illinois Education Association’s position that the bill will damage public education. “I stand behind IEA’s statements,” WTA President Laura Riley said. “Our association fully supports their statement and position and looks for their support.”

The bill, narrowly approved by the Illinois House and Senate on Dec. 3 and signed by Gov. Pat Quinn on Thursday, intends to fix the state’s pension crisis by providing $160 billion in savings over the next 30 years. “This landmark legislation is a bipartisan solution that squarely addresses the most difficult fiscal issue Illinois has ever confronted,” Quinn said in a statement. The House voted 62 to 53 for the plan. The Senate approved the bill 30 to 24.

It aims to guarantee full funding of the state’s pension systems by 2044, according to the Illinois Senate Democrats website. It affects workers in four of five different state pension funds – state workers, public university employees, most of the public school teachers in Illinois outside of Chicago and the General Assembly. Judge’s pensions are not affected by the new law. The law raises the retirement age for current workers 45 and younger on a sliding

scale, and also cuts back the 3 percent cost of living increases to only be applied to certain benefits. Workers will contribute 1 percent less to the plan. Westmont Community Unit School District 201 Board of Education President Marie Charlton called it a “sad day” for the state. “Future benefits are being cut and that’s a sad state,” Charlton said. “…Things were promised to these people that they’re not going to get. “It’s a shame that they have

to pay the price for bad financial planning by the state.” Opponents of the law, including labor unions, say the deal punishes workers who paid into the pension system for years but will now suffer because of the state’s failure to make payments and other mismanagement. Some Republicans said the cuts were not deep enough. Labor unions have said they will challenge the law’s constitutionality.

Reporter Ed McMenamin also contributed to this story.

maximize the village’s recycling programs and other green efforts, according to Trustee Harold Barry III, whose father was a member of the original EIC. Barry III said bringing the commission back is a good step toward improving Westmont’s carbon footprint. Another goal of the EIC is to aid the village’s Storm Water Management Committee, he added. “[The commission] is important in so many ways to our children’s future and grandchildren’s future,” said Barry III, adding that he will likely chair the commission. As of Monday, the commission had seven volunteers who have applied to be on the commission. Barry III is hoping to have a nine-member commission. Volunteering will involve

attending meetings, though it has not yet been determined how often the group would meet. Westmont resident Glenn Gabryel was a member on the original EIC and has already signed up for the new commission. “Right now it’s really quite an open slate,” Gabryel said, referring to the duties of the EIC. “It’s a blank slate so it’s difficult to predict what we’re

doing exactly … It’s a work in progress to pick up the pieces.” After being on the first commission, Gabryel said one thing he plans on carrying over to the new EIC is the idea of an open mind. “We tried to consider and focus fact-finding on decision-making with an eye toward economics as well as environmental impact,” Gabryel said. “On the residents’ part, we might be able to promote minimizing environmental impact,” Gabryel said. “[The] quality of an environment goes right along with quality of life in Westmont. “We want to keep an eye on the [cost effective payback],” he added. “We’re always responsible to citizens on an economic and as well environmental level.”

Washington, Ill., keepsakes turn up in Westmont, Downers Grove By ED MCMENAMIN emcmenamin@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – After the tornado destroyed Maureen Fandel’s home in Washington, Ill., she found many of her photos just feet from where she kept them, but some in the same collection landed more than 100 miles away. Six days after the storm, Westmont residents Keith and Fab Reich were raking leaves when they came across a single photo in the front yard, and one in the backyard. Keith Reich had heard of downstate items swept up by the storm’s powerful winds

found in the Chicago area, so he posted each picture on a Facebook page for unclaimed items. Sure enough, within an hour of the post, Fandel’s sister recognized one of the photos as a picture of their father. It’s the sixth or seventh item from Fandel’s home found in the Chicago area. Fandel, her husband Karl and 7-month old daughter Nora were safe in their basement when the tornado leveled their house. They now are living with her parents in Metamora. “We don’t have anything anymore,” said Fandel, who is a high school teacher. “It really means a lot to get these old

pictures back.” Curiously, she had even been in Westmont two days before the tornado. She is longtime friends with former Mayor Bill Rahn’s daughter and had driven north for the funeral. The “It’s a small world” moments continued a week later when Reich realized one of his best friends, Kevin Gleason, is Fandel’s uncle by marriage. “We were trying to think of the odds of that making it all the way up here and then having the Westmont connection,” Reich said. “What are the odds of that?” No such coincidences have occurred with the second pho-

to the Reichs found in their yard. Its owner still has not been discovered. He plans to send the picture to the Morton Public Library, which has taken up a collection of found items. Facebook did help connect another Washington family that lost an item and a Downers Grove family last week. Downers Grove resident Pamela Nicholas’ son, Anthony, was playing in their yard Dec. 1 when he found what he thought was money. “He brought it to me and I thought he was kidding,” Nicholas said. “And I looked at it and I saw that it was a $50 savings bond.” Nicholas didn’t think much about it at first and just assumed it had flown off

the back of a garbage truck or came from some other unremarkable place, until she looked at the owner’s address printed on the bond. “I put two and two together and I thought, ‘Oh my gosh this came all the way from Washington and landed in our backyard,’ ” she said. After some digging on Facebook, she was able to track down the Warren family in Washington by the end of the week. So far, it’s the only item they’ve found on their large lot that borders a wooded area, but they have kept looking. “You never know,” she said. “When I was looking online I’ve seen more people who have lost one or two items that mean the world to them.”

A Celebrity in our Midst ClaudeWalton brings a long history to Saratoga Grove Retirement Community DOWNERS GROVE – As a tall, 100

- year - old, African-American man, Claude Walton is something of a celebrity at Saratoga Grove — a retirement community in Downers Grove, Illinois. His fellow residents don’t know it, but Claude was one of only six minority students when he attended the University of Colorado in the 1930s, where he became the first athlete to earn All-American honors. Another claim to fame: Claude was slated to compete in the qualifying meets for the 1936 Olympics, but he broke his ankle sliding into first base during a recreational softball game, so he did not compete in Germany with Jesse Owens. “That softball game changed my life,” he says without regret. He accepted a job with the Chicago Park District and

stayed there for the next four decades. As an instructor in the tumbling program, he met a young Jesse White and became a mentor to him. In 2008, 75 years after he attended the University of Colorado, Claude was inducted into the university’s Hall of Fame. At 94 years old, he was the oldest Hall of Claude Walton celebrated his Fame inductee. In October of this 100th birthday on August 1, year, Claude was named 2013. Lombard’s Senior of the Year by Village President Keith Saratoga Grove is located at 3460 Saratoga Avenue in Giagnorio. A recent foot surgery led Downers Grove, Illinois. For him to Providence Downers more information, call Grove for rehab, after which (630) 971-1995. he moved into an apartment next door at Saratoga Grove, where he participates in the fitness program. “I don’t feel like I’m 100,” he says, “but my body tells me differently.”

Each child will receive three toys, a book and a stuffed animal. “It helps the families so instead of spending money on toys for gifts they can spend money on things like food and basic services,” he said. One of the things that makes Toy Express unique is it sets up a storefront every year, and parents get to pick out the items they will give to their children. “The fact that the parent gets to pick the toys out, they

BOTTLED WATER AND FLUORIDE Q: Am I getting adequate fluoride protection for my teeth if I’m drinking bottled water? A: You and a lot of other people are drinking water from bottles, rather than from the tap. However, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control, “bottled water may not have a sufficient amount of fluoride, which is important for preventing tooth decay and promoting oral health.” Some bottled waters contain fluoride and some do not. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced that it will allow bottlers to claim that fluoridated water may reduce the risk of tooth decay. Delta Dental and the American Dental Association support the FDA’s decision. The FDA, however, does not require bottlers to list the fluoride content on labels. About two-thirds of the U.S. population that relies on public water systems drink fluoridated water from the tap. Many types of toothpaste also include fluoride. Fluoride at optimal levels helps prevent tooth decay. All ground and surface water contains some naturally occurring fluoride. The ADA has supported efforts to add fluoride to drinking supplies when necessary to raise the parts-per-million to at least 0.7. If you are a bottled water drinker, check the label on the bottle. If fluoride content is not listed, you can get the information by contacting the bottler. Talk with your dentist about your water-drinking practices and ask him if you’re getting enough fluoride.

Once someone volunteers with Toy Express and sees the joy it brings to hundreds of families in the Downers Grove area, it’s hard for them to stay away. Chris Bokhart of Downers Grove first volunteered about 16 years ago when his son’s Eagle Scout project worked with the organization. He’s been back every year since, growing his involvement. “It pulled my heart strings so much that a small group of people could do so much for a large population in the areas that we live,” he said. In 2000, he incorporated the grassroots organization, originally founded by Pat Rynne and Naomi Little, as an official nonprofit. “Every year, you walk away with a family that just touches your heart – we’re talking a special moment,” he said. “You get to that moment every year, and you know it was all worth it.”

have a little bit more pride in it,” he said. Toy Express sets up wherever they can find a donated storefront, each year. This year, shop is set up in the Chestnut Court Shopping Center in Suite 152 at 75th Street and Lemont Road. Every toy, book and stuffed animal is donated to collection sites at fire stations and other drop points. Bokhart said it takes between 50 and 75 volunteers to run the entire operation, including a dedicated group of about 20 individuals. Original founders Naomi

Radio station promises county coverage By NATHAN LURZ nlurz@shawmedia.com

To learn more

For information about AM 1530 When listening to radio WCKG, visit www.dupageradio. news in the suburbs, the lead com.] stories often revolve around the city of Chicago. However, a station that just moved to Wheaton is hoping to change the conversation to DuPage County. AM 1530 WCKG recently opened a studio near downtown Wheaton as part of its effort to cover local communities. “I’ve lived and worked out here my whole life,” said station general manager Matt Dubiel. “And on the news at 10, it’s all about what Rahm Emanuel did, even though Rahm Emanuel doesn’t have anything to do with us.” Known for its syndicated “Mancow’s Morning Madness” and “Dan Patrick” shows, Dubiel said he plans to gradually fill the airwaves with county-specific news. The effort will start in January with the station’s “Best of the ‘Burbs” program, in

which WCKG’s regular shows will be interspersed with vignettes about local businesses, community-specific news and interviews with area personalities. “We just want to talk to people in the community. Every person that runs a business or a church or a club can come talk about it and don’t have to pay,” he said. “That’s the point of a radio station.” From there, Dubiel said, the station hopes to expand to offer shows featuring county and community news, starting on the weekends and during the lunch hour. WCKG’s move to Wheaton, the county seat, reflects the station’s desire to entrench itself in the area, he said. Financial planner Terry

Heafey of Palos Heights cohosts one of the station’s two existing local shows, “Wealth Essentials Radio.” He and fellow host Randy Barcella, a real estate appraiser, answer financial questions from DuPage County residents. Heafey said a rapport with local listeners is key, especially in the world of personal finance. “On the radio, we can pull back the curtain a little bit,” he said. “It’s an avenue where we are allowed to cut through the noise and provide clarity on an individualized basis.” Dubiel said the station would slowly but surely embrace community radio. “If there’s a local baker who has really good cookies in Wheaton, she can come on and talk about that,” he said. “There’s Omega Restaurant in Downers Grove that’s been there since I was 3 and is a heritage restaurant in Downers Grove. Every town has something like that, but we only hear news from the city.”

Downers Grove Township Highway Department maintains more than 70 miles of road within Downers Grove Township. Some of these areas include the following subdivisions: Golfview Hills, Hinswood, Liberty Park, Timberlake, Tri State, DG Gardens, Bruce Lake, Farmingdale, Rose Hill, Pleasantdale and Brookeridge. Our crew is responsible COMMUNITY for plowing and salting these VOICE roads during the winter Lawrence months. We have an ordinance with DuPage County Anderson regarding parking restrictions on all streets during the winter months when it snows one inch or more. We would appreciate it if residents would keep all vehicles off the street whenever a snowfall is predicted so that we can use our plowing/salting equipment more efficiently. Please remember snowplow etiquette. Make sure you give the trucks plenty of room, due to blind spots and safety. With everyone’s cooperation, we will provide the best job of snow and ice removal possible. The township would also like to remind the homeowner that IL State Statute 5/9-130 prohibits anyone from depositing snow or ice upon the public highway. Doing this may cause an accident and the homeowner will be held responsible. Mailbox assessment: Please check your mailbox to make sure that it is in good shape. In most cases mailboxes are knocked down by wet snow thrown off the edge of the snowplow. Rotten wood makes your mailbox much more susceptible to damage from wet snow. If your mailbox does get knocked down, the township will assess it on an individual basis and determine if the damage was due to rotten wood or a strike from a snowplow. Mailboxes that are struck by one of our snowplows will be repaired/replaced with a 4x4 post and a standard mailbox by the highway department. The ones that are knocked down because of rotten wood are up to the homeowner to replace. Christmas tree pickup: Downers Grove Township Highway Department will pick up Christmas trees in the unincorporated areas the first two weeks of the year. Trees should be stripped of lights, ornaments and tree stands and placed near the curb or ditch line for pick-up. For information, go to www.dgtownship.com or call the highway department office at 630-719-6625.

Police: Bellringer stole $1,000 in donations from Pre-Lit LED Artificial Christmas Trees Salvation Army bucket

Factory Direct Prices! Manufacturer’s Showroom – Open to the Public Open Every Day from 10:00am to 6:00pm

SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA NAPERVILLE – A Chicago man is accused of stealing more than $1,000 from a Salvation Army donation bucket. Joe Horton, 52, of 6331 S. Justine in Chicago, faces a charge of misdemeanor theft for stealing $1,030 in donations from the bucket, according to the DuPage County Joe State’s Attor- Horton ney. Horton worked as a bellringer for the Salvation Army outside a Naperville store. He also faces a Class 4 felony charge of identity theft for allegedly attempting to use a credit card from a lost wallet he found outside the same

store, authorities said in a news release. “The allegations against Mr. Horton are completely outrageous,” State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said. “The very idea that someone would steal donations meant for the less fortunate is sickening, particularly given the fact that we are in the heart of the holiday season. “I would like to thank members of the Naperville Police Department for their fine work and assistance in this case. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorney Romas Mockaitis for his work as well.” Horton appeared in bond court Thursday morning where Judge Elizabeth Sexton set his bond at $40,000 with 10 percent to apply. His next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 30 in front of Judge George Bakalis.

Restaurant reviews

Barone’s builds buzz with pizza prowess GLEN ELLYN – A serious craving for pizza one recent Sunday afternoon prompted us to try someplace new, Barone’s of Glen Ellyn, which turns out to be a community institution steeped in the village’s history and in the noble art of the American pie. Founded in 1971, the restaurant has two dining rooms, decorated with photos tracing the history of Glen Ellyn, with an homage to earlier identities such as Danby and Prospect Park written prettily across faux-finished walls. Warmly greeted as we were directed to our table, we were treated to one of several booths with a digital frame shuffling through a display of historic photographs, which proved great fun and a conversation kick-starter. The attractively designed space is conducive to conversation, even as the rooms began to fill shortly following the daily mid-afternoon opening. Looking for an interesting brew, my dining companion found Mama’s Little Yella Pils, which he recommends for its crisp, clean flavor, and I enjoyed a generously poured house cabernet. Cocktails are available, along with a variety of wines and craft beers. While we studied the menu, which extends to Italian dishes and other staples in addition to pizza, we enjoyed thick slices of crusty bread accompanied by a petite carafe of olive olive for dipping and a shaker of Parmesan. While good enough to be homemade, the bread turned out to be from Turano Baking Company of Berwyn. We opened with a delicious wedge salad, with ultra crisp iceberg lettuce smothered in the house bleu cheese dressing and well sprinkled with diced tomato and crunchy, flavorful bacon for zesty contrasts in texture and taste. A cross-country celebrity argument recently in the news about the merits of Chicago’s stuffed pizza vs. traditional crust was resolved peacefully

Barone’s has been a popular dining destination in Glen Ellyn since 1971.

The “small” stuffed pizza is a substantial treat for pizza lovers and will Crisp flavors set this wedge salad apart – did we mention all the basatisfy the heartiest appetite. con, plus tomato? long ago at Barone’s, which embraces thin crust, pan and stuffed pizza. Thankfully, it also offers a delicious gluten-free crust option that I tried with sausage, onions and a plentiful topping of fresh mushrooms. This alternate thin crust with its mildly tell-tale sweetness means the welcome end of deprivation for pizza lovers trying to avoid gluten. My companion went for the stuffed pie, with fresh spinach, mushroom and bacon.

“While not classic Chicago style, it’s a tasty suburban twist,” he said. And while he ordered a “small” pizza, it provided eight massive slices – and ample leftovers for lunches. The service was terrific, and we liked being able to help ourselves to water refills with a wine-bottle-cum-watercarafe as we lingered over the meal. The menu ranges from pasta and Italian specialties to barbecue ribs, burgers, soups

and salads, with gluten-free pasta also available. Off the dining rooms is a spacious entry area that accommodates pickup and delivery services, and houses a freezer case of pizza and other dishes that folks can take home to finish cooking in their own kitchen. Another case holds tempting desserts, ideal to take along if you haven’t left enough room at dinner. Also sold are package wine and beer, candy, ice cream and ices.

As we walked to its parking lot, we spotted Barone’s playroom for kids, featuring toys and video games with several rapt young people – another thoughtful touch at this venerable family restaurant.

(BPT) - Cinnamon may be the world’s most popular baking spice, but all cinnamons are not created equal, and in the foodie world, Vietnamese cinnamon has emerged as the most prized of the bunch. The bunch, by the way, includes an array of cinnamons and cassias, all from evergreen trees of the Cinnamomum genus. Some are from Indonesia, others from China, Sri Lanka or Mexico. Dark reddish/brown and lushly aromatic, Vietnamese cinnamon is favored for its distinctly sweet, peppery, spicy flavor. Less tannic and more robust than its relatives, it delivers a powerful taste whether used solo - as in those gooey rolls or spirally bread - or in combo with other spices - in a curry or pumpkin pie spice blend, for example. All that potency comes from an extraordinarily high volatile oil content - the highest of all the cinnamons about 1 to 6 percent, compared with .5 to 2.5 percent in other cinnamons. The high oil content also helps the flavor disperse fully; there’s no mistaking what spice you’re dealing with when you taste a dish seasoned with Vietnamese cinnamon. Tips for using Vietnamese cinnamon: Browse any assortment of baking recipes and you’ll find cinnamon in the ingredients lists for cakes, muffins, breads, cookies, pies, bread puddings, cobblers, crisps, and pastries. It also has a special affinity for fruits, such as apples, apricots,

cherries, pears, bananas and citrus. Cinnamon’s warm flavor also shows up in plenty of savory dishes - soups, sauces, chutneys, catsup, pickles, fish, meat and poultry glazes, as well as many ethnic recipes. Its pungent sweetness also enhances grains and hearty vegetables like carrots, squash, potatoes, beets and onions. In most savory dishes, cooks prefer Vietnamese cinnamon over other cinnamons because of its ability to hold its own alongside other lively ingredients. When using Vietnamese cinnamon to spice a beverage - a hot cocoa, an eggnog, hot cider, coffee or tea - you might start by stirring it into your prepared beverage just a bit at a time. Once you nail your preferred amount, you can add it directly right into your coffeemaker basket along with your ground coffee, your mulling cider pot or your tea blend, for example. Vietnamese cinnamon also partners well with other spices like cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, allspice and black pepper. Here are a few places you might not have considered using cinnamon: * Soups, stews and chili * Peanut brittle * Popcorn seasoning * Spice rubs for meats * Grilling marinades for fruits * Rice and tapioca puddings * Chocolate cakes * Spiced nuts * Granola and muesli

Here’s a recipe that shows off the vibrant flavor of Vietnamese cinnamon: Poached Cinnamon Cheese Pears 4 large pears 3/4 cup pear juice 1 tablespoon honey 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cinnamon stick 2 tablespoons golden raisins 4 ounces softened cream cheese 1/4 teaspoon Vietnamese cinnamon powder 3 tablespoons slivered almonds Slice pears in half lengthwise and core. Place in a saucepan. In a small bowl combine juice, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon stick and raisins; pour over the pears. Cover and simmer about half an hour, until pears are just tender. Place pears on a serving platter. Blend together cream cheese, leftover cooking liquid and cinnamon powder. Spoon some of the mixture atop the center of each pear, sprinkle with almonds, and serve. Makes four large servings. For a collection of seven savory recipes with cinnamon from various publications, visit www.theKitchn.com. Vietnamese cinnamon is available through Frontier Natural Products. They offer their organic Vietnamese cinnamon (5 percent oil) in one-pound bulk bags as well as 1.31-ounce bottles. This brand won the Gold Star Award from the restaurant industry publication Sante Magazine, who deemed it “a standout.”


Modernize the holiday by choosing a salmon and chartreuse color scheme over traditional red and green, mentions Canepa. “If this part of the color wheel leaves you flat, use the symbols of Christmas like candy canes, reindeer, stars, pinecones, stockings, candles and balls - but make sure they are other hues than red and green. Add white, lots of white, which adds pop.” Silver, gold and mirrored surfaces are also appropriate and modern, as are neutral colors such as white, gray and beige when combined with shiny materials. “Silver is the metallic accent that ties [this year’s holiday] colors together,” says Ann Durkin, part-time adjunct faculty professor of Interior Design at The Art Institute of Phoenix. Durkin adds that this holiday season marks a shift toward textures that express warmth through materials - such as wood, suede and burlap. “There is a strong desire for more touchable handmade or nature-made objects with a modern twist.-This can be an embroidered or knitted pillow covers, textured rugs or a burlap tree skirt.”

She advises holiday decorators to keep things simple and to showcase special pieces such as handmade ornaments. “There is no need to buy new decorations every year.-But don’t let the old decorations drive your design for the space.”-Be selective in how you will re-use them. Durkin says that updating old ornaments can be as simple as repainting them with matte silver paint and affixing silver beads with a sheer silver bow. Old ornaments may also be re-covered with fabrics such as burlap, to give an earthy hand-made appearance.-”This way you can still preserve the original look of the ornament, if it makes sense to use it again in the future. Think of it as a slip-cover for your ornament. “The overall idea is to have fun and re-use existing decorations as much as possible by reinventing them,” Durkin states. The key to this holiday season’s decorating: keeping things simple yet chic while matching your personal style. “Create a timeless ensemble which could extend beyond the holiday season and be used as the basic foundation for your interiors throughout the year,” says Durkin.

SD • Wednesday, December 11, 2013 • mysuburbanlife.com • Suburban Life

(BPT) - This year’s holiday season is taking on a decidedly modern twist, with an emphasis on recycling and repurposing old decorations, utilizing sustainable decor, and adding sparkle to complete the look. Shari Canepa, American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), member, LEED Green Associate, and a member of the interior design faculty at The Art Institute of California - San Francisco, a campus of Argosy University, says that sustainability begins with the icon of Christmas: the Christmas tree. “It can no longer be artificial or cut. Bring a potted tree into your home with the intention of planting it after Christmas in the yard. The idea is to save a tree and plant a tree, giving a gift to nature after Christmas.” Canepa recommends creating a new focal point in the public area of your home to reinforce the spirit of the season. “You can do this with a tree, wreaths, special seasonal decorative accessories or lighting. Shifting the focal point changes your psychological relationship to the room.” To design a new focal point, Canepa suggests an arrangement of various sized potted trees that can be conveniently moved. Create a mini forest of varying sizes and heights and decorate with lights and ornaments. “Supple evergreen branches wrapped around a stair banister with or without lights is also a nice addition.” To continue the sustainable trend, utilize energy-friendly LED lights around pictures, ceiling moldings, desk railings, in interior flower arrangements or on door casings. “Sophisticated or elegant interiors move toward white lights while energetic, youthful or modern themes make use of the color option. These energy saving lights make using lots of sparkle for Christmas guilt-free,” Canepa says.

Holly and mistletoe are symbols of Christmas h, by gosh, by golly it’s time for mistletoe and holly. Tasty pheasants, Christmas presents, countrysides covered in snow.” As exemplified by this holiday hit by Henry Sanicola, Frank Sinatra and Dok Stanford, holly and mistletoe are an integral part of holiday imagery and tradition. Holly is used to adorn a home in green and red finery alongside evergreen boughs and wreaths. In addition, it has become customary to hang a bouquet of mistletoe under which people are encouraged to share a holiday kiss. While these elements of celebrations are now incorporated into many of the secular and religious components of Christmas, they have very different origins.

“O

Whether faux or fresh mistletoe, a bouquet of this plant symbolizes peace and tranquility for Christmas.

Holly

Holly has been used since the days of the early Pagans as a decoration for midwinter festivities, when it was brought into homes to keep evil spirits away. The ancient Romans also believed that holly prickles drove away evil spirits, and it held a place of honor at December festivals dedicated to the god Saturn. To avoid persecution during the Roman pagan Saturnalia festival, early Christians would participate in the tradition of hanging evil-repelling holly on their homes to appear like the masses. Eventually as the number of Christians grew, the tradition became less of a pagan one and more associated with Christians and Christmas. Some people have inferred that holly and its prickly edges is symbolic of the crown of thorns Jesus wore at his crucifixion, with the red berries representing blood.

Mistletoe

Mistletoe was once held sacred by the Norse, Celtic Druids and North American Indians. It is actually a parasitic plant that grows on a wide range of host trees. Heavy infestation can dwarf the growth and kill these trees. In cultures across pre-Christian Europe, mistletoe was seen as a representation of divine male essence (and thus romance, fertility and vitality). The plant also was thought to be a symbol of peace, and anyone standing below it should receive tokens of affection. When enemies met

beneath mistletoe, they had to lay down their weapons and observe a truce until the next day. This is how the tradition of kissing under the mistletoe likely began, and why a ball of mistletoe is now hung in homes during Christmas, a season of peace and affection. Homeowners who hang mistletoe and holly around their homes during the holiday season should be mindful of pets and youngsters around the plants. Mistletoe and holly are considered to be moderately to severely toxic, and ingesting the leaves could be dangerous. Therefore, keep these plants away from curious hands. Mistletoe is commonly hung up high, which should make it less problematic, but holly should be hung high as well. Now largely associated with Christmas celebrations, holly and mistletoe were once part of pagan rituals and ancient superstitions.

(BPT) - When the holiday season arrives, so too does the enigma of holiday tipping. What’s supposed to be a sign of gratitude for great service, can quickly turn into stress as you try to decide if and how much you should tip the handyman, mail carrier, babysitter and many more. Lizzie Post, co-author of “Emily Post’s Etiquette, 18th edition” and great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post, knows the finer points of tipping during the holiday season, including who to tip, how much to tip and how to stay on budget doing so. Post has teamed with up Bank of America, and here are some of her suggestions: Make a list - The key to holiday tipping is to plan ahead so nobody gets overlooked. A tip is appropriate for people who have provided their services throughout the year, like your dog walker, housekeeper, personal trainer, hairstylist, doorman and trash collector. Don’t forget to think of the entire family in the process, as well - it’s always good to recognize babysitters, day care providers and nannies. Scale appropriately - The general rule of thumb for holiday tipping is up to the cost of one instance of service. However, this does not ring true for everyone on your list. Individuals who provide service on a more regular basis, such as an au pair or housekeeper, may require additional recognition, such as one week’s pay. Some people who may appreciate a gift, but most likely cannot accept cash, include your child’s teacher, health care professionals and government employees, like your mail carrier. By making gift purchases for these individuals with a rewards card, such as BankAmericard Cash Rewards(TM) card, you can earn cash back on every purchase, so when the holidays conclude, you have extra money in your pocket. Leverage technology - The holiday season is a hectic time of year for many people, so leverage technology to make life easier. Using easy-to-use tools, such as Bank of America’s mobile application, you can stay on top of account balances for gift giving and set up alerts to get balance

notifications. And, with advances in mobile technology, gifting money is easier and more convenient than ever. For instance, using Bank of America’s online or mobile banking you can send money to another person using only their email address or mobile phone number, saving time, energy and effort. Prefer to send a check? No problem. Customers can simply access Bank of America’s mobile banking app on their smartphone or tablet to securely deposit checks on their schedule. Express gratitude - It’s important to remember that above all else, holiday tipping is really holiday thanking, extending a courteous gesture as a result of service throughout the year. No matter how much or what you decide to give, it’s always important to offer your thanks with a hand-written note or holiday card. After all, it’s the thought and sentiment behind the gesture that matters most, not the gift itself. Consider these holiday tipping guidelines from Post: * Barber/hairstylist cost of one salon visit or a gift * Babysitter - one evening’s pay and a small gift * Handyman - $15 to $40 * Au pair or live-in nanny one week’s pay and a gift from your child(ren) * Garage attendants - $10 to $30 or a small gift * Day care provider $25 to $70 for each staff member or a gift * Personal trainer up to the cost of one session or a gift * Dog walker - up to one week’s pay or a gift * Housekeeper/cleaner - up to the amount of one week’s pay and/or a small gift * Personal caregiver - between one week to one month’s salary or a gift * Doorman - $15 to $80 cash or a gift * Trash/recycling collectors - $10 to $30 each * Pet groomer up to the cost of one session or a gift * Yard/garden worker - $20 to $50 cash or a gift

of Santa alive. In addition to the standard traditions of leaving cookies and milk out for the jolly old man, come up with new ways to evoke the essence of Santa. Spray peppermint air freshener around the tree and other places Santa is sure to visit. Use a large boot to make a footprint in a plush rug. Find a way to trigger noise on the roof to give kids the impression that Mr. Claus himself has arrived. Extra measures to keep Santa alive can help everyone enjoy the holiday that much more. * Take advantage of opportunities to spend time with Santa. Parents and children alike have many opportunities to spend time with Santa during the holiday season, including photo opportunities at the mall and personalized videos sent directly to youngsters’ email accounts. Elf dolls and breakfast with Santa at a nearby restaurant are other opportunities to spread the magic. Make the most of these opportunities over the course of the holiday season. * Spread some Christmas cheer. Santa’s job is to bring presents to the world’s children. Channel the notion that giving is better than receiving and spend time giving back to others as a family. Schedule a day when you can distribute gifts at a senior center or arrange to bring gifts to a foster child. Bake cookies and deliver cellophane-wrapped dishes to all of your neighbors. These activities put the emphasis on giving. Keeping the tradition of Santa Claus alive can help adults and children alike enjoy a more festive holiday season.

e had a broad face and a little round belly that shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly. He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf. And I laughed when I saw him in spite of myself. - “A Visit From St. Nicholas” Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without Santa Claus. Santa will forever be ingrained in the holiday season, serving as an endearing symbol of the season regardless of your religious affiliation. Parents typically go to great lengths to ensure their children enjoy the holiday season. By keeping the magic of Santa alive, parents can add a special touch to the holiday season for their youngsters. Children may become more skeptical of Santa around the time they turn 10, but there are plenty of ways to encourage this spirit to live on year after year. * Read an uplifting story. The holidays are ripe with stories that tug at the heartstrings. Parents can take their children to the library and rent a Christmas tale or take home a book of holiday stories, reading a different one before bed each night. Encourage children to write their own positive stories of what the holidays mean to them and read them aloud to family and friends. The book “101 Ways to Keep the Spirit of Santa Alive: For “Kids” From 1 to 92” by John Hagerman is a great way to get everyone in the house enthusiastic about Santa. * Keep the magic flowing. Children who believe in Santa for an extra year or two often come from families that keep the magic

Are the Browns the cupcake the Bears need? Hub Arkush

With the Bears desperately needing to close out the season with three more wins to keep their hopes of winning the NFC North and a trip to the playoffs alive, the Cleveland Browns would appear to be exactly the cupcake the doctor ordered. After all, the Browns are 4-9, mired in a four-game losing streak, and stuck in last place in the AFC North. Ah, but looks can be deceiving. The Bears have faced three other lastplace teams this season in the Vikings, Redskins and Rams, and their record is 1-3 against them, with a loss to each. While the Browns record is weak, they do own victories over the Bengals and Ravens, and they actually had a 26-14 lead last week in New England with only two minutes remaining before the Patri-

ots made a miraculous comeback with the help of some questionable officiating. This is a team the Bears absolutely cannot afford to look past if they don’t want to risk all the ground they just made with Monday night’s win over the Cowboys. The good news for the Bears is the Browns’ greatest struggles are in the area of the Bears’ greatest challenge. While the Bears are still dead last in the NFL against the run, the Browns are only 28th in the NFL in rushing and 27th in average gain per run. That is in large part due to their early season trade of Trent Richardson to the Colts, which may have netted them an extra first round draft choice in the 2014 draft, but left them with the aged Willis McGahee, who is averaging only 2.7 yards a carry, and youngsters Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker. Cleveland is better throwing the football, ranking 10th in passing yardage, but they’re only 28th in average gain per pass and are 18th in interceptions and sacks allowed.

herma Tru Doors

Part of the problem is the inability to keep quarterbacks healthy. Brian Hoyer had won the starting job before tearing up a knee and going down for the year, and former Bears’ quarterback Jason Campbell was playing very well with an 88.0 passer rating before battling a concussion for several weeks. Campbell did make it back last week to throw for 391 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions at New England, the bulk of it going to Josh Gordon. Gordon is enjoying an All-Pro type season with 71 receptions, 1,400 yards and eight touchdowns. He will pose the biggest challenge for the Bears’ defense, Tim Jennings and Zack Bowman in particular. Tight end Jordan Cameron also is extremely dangerous. He’s caught 72 passes for 825 yards and seven touchdowns on the year. For all their prowess in the passing game, the Browns still average only 19.8 points a game, good for 27th in the league is scoring. The Browns’ defense has been ex-

cellent most of the season in keeping opposing offenses off the field, ranking seventh in total defense, fourth against the run and second in average yards per rushing play. They are eighth against the pass, and third in average yards per pass play. Big plays are the Browns defense’s Achilles heel, though, as it’s only 24th in interceptions, 14th in sacks and 19th in points allowed. Paul Kruger and rookie first-round draft pick Barkevious Mingo are their best pass rushers. D’Qwell Jackson is the club’s leading tackler from the inside linebacker spot, and Phil Taylor and Ahtyba Rubin do a really nice job up front at nose tackle and the five techniques, respectively, in the Browns’ base 3-4 defense. If the Bears’ offense plays like it did against the Cowboys, it’ll be an extremely tough out for Cleveland. But if the Bears can’t pressure Campbell in the pocket, he, Gordon and Cameron will give the Bears another shootout like all the other last-place clubs they’ve faced.

MATCHUPS TO EXPLOIT Broncos (vs. Chargers), 7:25 p.m. Thursday At this point, you probably don’t need anyone to tell you to play your Broncos, but this is a particularly good matchup. Only four teams give up more passing yards than San Diego, and one of those teams is the Broncos. Looks like a shootout. Must starts: Peyton Man-

Avoid,” but this will be an opportunity for their offense to produce. To their credit, the Falcons haven’t given up, and the Washington defense is terrible. Solid plays: Steven Jackson, Tony Gonzalez Worth a look: Matt Ryan, Roddy White Last resort: Harry Douglas Avoid: Atlanta defense Browns (vs. Bears), Sunday noon We all know by now that the Bears have a historically bad run defense. The Browns, however, have no rushing attack. Something has to give.

As usual, it will be the Bears defense. Must starts: Josh Gordan, Jordan Cameron Solid plays: Willis McGahee* Worth a look: Jason Campbell, Billy Cundiff Last resort: Greg Little Avoid: Cleveland defense Eagles (at Vikings), noon Sunday Chip Kelly has all but ditched the gadget offense, and the Eagles are rolling. There is no reason to think that roll will stop against a sieve-like defense in Minnesota. Must starts: LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson Solid plays: Nick Foles, Riley Cooper Worth a look: Alex Henery, Philly defense Last resort: Brent Celek, Zach Ertz

MATCHUPS TO AVOID Buccaneers (vs. 49ers), noon

Sunday The Bucs are on a nice little roll, but we expect that to end against one of the NFL’s best defenses. Worth a look: Vincent Jackson* Last resort: Matt Glennon, Bobby Rainey, Tampa defense, Timothy Wright Avoid: Brian Leonard, Rian Lindell Patriots (at Dolphins), noon Sunday We are recommending a cautious approach with New England this week. Tom Brady struggled before Rob Gronkowski’s return. Without the big tight end, their production may regress. Solid Plays: Shane Vereen, Stephen Gostkowski Worth a look: New England defense, Tom Brady Last resort: LeGarrette Blount, Stevan Ridley, Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman

Westmont’s Adam Doll looks to pass the ball during the Sentinels’ home game against Reed-Custer on Thursday. The Sentinels lost in a high-scoring affair as foul trouble forced them to alter their rotation.

Sentinels still adjusting on defense By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com WESTMONT – Things might be different for Westmont’s boys basketball team if it could only move past the foul trouble that has plagued it in the early part of the season. The Sentinels fell to 1-5 after losing a back-and-forth game to Elmwood Park and a high-scoring tilt against ReedCuster. In both cases, the Sentinels got into foul trouble early and were eventually handcuffed in the fourth quarter after two starters fouled out. “We are learning to play within the new rules,” Westmont coach Craig Etheridge

said, referring to the offseason rule change that cracks down on handchecking.

“It’s something that we keep emphasizing in practice. Because we are generally an undersized team, we have always allowed our kids to be scrappy and physical with bigger teams. Now, we are trying to get away from that.” The team encountered the same foul problems in a Thanksgiving tournament game against Wheeling, as Etheridge dipped into his bench early in the first quarter only to have players foul out in the fourth quarter. Westmont lost to Wheeling 50-49. Etheridge said there are advantages and disadvantages to the new rule change. Theoretically, if more whistles are blown, overly

physical teams will abandon their bruising style in order to keep their players out of foul trouble. If that’s the case, a smaller, quicker team like Westmont would be a beneficiary, Etheridge said. What the Sentinels head coach hadn’t planned on was taking out starters early in three of the team’s six games this season. Westmont jumped out to a lead over Elmwood Park on Dec. 3, but senior starters Danny LoGiurato and Greg Pietrzak were each called for quick fouls, forcing the coaching staff to juggle the lineup. The duo fouled out in the fourth quarter and the Sentinels lost 54-45. Two days later against Reed-

Custer, Westmont held a fivepoint advantage going into the fourth quarter, but John Kelly and Seth Torrens fouled out and the Sentinels lost a high scoring affair, 100-95. Before fouling out, Kelly led the offense with 27 points. Pietrzak and Torrens scored 20 and 14 points, respectively. Going forward, Etheridge says the team will focus on improving their defensive efficiency in an attempt to mitigate foul trouble. “We keep emphasizing defense,” Etheridge said. “Right now, we are not matching up properly and not communicating well. These lapses have led to us giving up offensive boards and leaving shooters open.”

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA

Downers Grove North | Senior | Girls basketball Why Costello was selected: She has been a catalyst for Downers Grove North’s girls basketball this season and was averaging 13.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 3.9 steals for the Trojans through six games. Sarah Costello and the Downers Grove North girls basketball team are off to a hot start, taking second in the Glenbard East Invite and winning five of their first six games. Costello has been a key piece to the hot start by running the offense, distributing the ball and knocking down seemingly every open jumper. Costello, the Sears Hardware and Appliance Athlete of the Week, talked with Suburban Life sports reporter Alex Soulier about the beginning of the season.

Was there an area or skill you sought to improve during the offseason?

I think the competitiveness exhibited during soccer games, as well as the physical nature of the game, helped me out. Both of them are aggressive sports – you have to constantly battle for positioning on the field and possession of the ball.

In your opinion, what is the difference between this this year and last year? We are there for each other and support one another this year. It is not about the individuals, but about the entire team. Different players have stepped up during different games.

You recently committed to Indianapolis University. What was it that really sold you on the school? The coaching staff is great. I love the campus and everything about the school. I attended a camp there and I just fell in love with the school; I knew it was the right fit.

Downers Grove South’s girls basketball team stopped a three-game losing streak with a 46-41 victory over Leyden on Saturday. The 46-point outburst is the second-most points South has scored this year. The win pushed the Mustangs’ record to 3-4. Next, Downers Grove South will host back-to-back home games against Addison Trail on Saturday and Hinsdale South on Tuesday.

Consistency a concern for DGN boys By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – Two weeks into the regular season, the focus for Downers Grove North’s boys basketball team is finding more consistent play. After alternating wins and losses at the Wheaton Academy Thanksgiving Tournament, the Trojans dropped their first West Suburban Silver game, falling 59-35 to defending conference champion Hinsdale Central to move to 2-3 in the regular season. Devin Blake scored 10 points in a losing effort against Central, as the Trojans trailed by four points at halftime but committed turnovers on 11 straight possessions in the third quarter.

learn to take what the defense gives you.” Blake has shouldered the offensive burden in the absence of junior guard Myles Farley, who is almost ready to return to the Trojans’ lineup after tearing his ACL in the final game of the 2012-13 season. David Edwards is also battling through a leg injury, which he suffered during the recent football season. Edwards has been a defensive wall when he suits up, recently holding Central’s Matt Rafferty to his lowest point total of the season. Led by Edwards and senior forward Ray Greco – whose tenacity and athletic ability make him one of the best team’s defenders – the Trojans have excelled when they rebound well and win the battles for loose balls.

Trailing 24-23 at halftime, Downers Grove South’s boys basketball team went on a 9-2 run to start the second half and and held off host Addison Trail for a 52-46 win Friday in a West Suburban Gold conference game. With the win, the Mustangs improved to 2-3 overall and 1-0 in conference play ahead of Friday’s WSG road clash at Hinsdale South. South held a 38-29 lead entering the fourth quarter, but

the Blazers battled back and took a 44-41 lead with under five minutes to play. Danny Spinuzza led all scorers with 18 points, with nine points coming in the fourth quarter. With just over a minute to play, Matt Zinnecker came up with a steal and outletted to Spinuzza, whose layup put the Mustangs ahead for good at 47-46. Senior guard Paul Engo III scored 10 points and center Kovas Rugienius chipped in seven points for the Mustangs.

Downers Grove North’s Jaida Green (second from right) steals the ball and makes her way downcourt in Thursday’s home win against Glenbard West. Green and the Trojans have displayed a newfound confidence during a hot start this season.

Confidence takes Trojans to new level By ALEX SOULIER asoulier@shawmedia.com DOWNERS GROVE – Confidence suits Downers Grove North’s girls basketball team just fine. The Trojans won just nine games last season, but head coach Stephan Bolt said that last year’s subpar showing combined with a handful of single-digit losses expedited the maturation process for a young squad which returned only one all-conference player – senior guard Sarah Costello. “We have grown a lot in the last year,” Bolt said. “They really care about each other and they are a close-knit group of girls. It goes a long way and it

really shows on the floor.” Experience and chemistry have turned the program around and the team now expects to win every game, Bolt said. So far, the Trojans’ play is living up to the expectations, as they are 6-1 and unbeaten in two West Suburban Silver conference games.

“This team expects to win when they step on the court because they know that they have put in a lot of hard work during practice and the offseason,” Bolt said. “I think we lacked confidence and an expectation to win last season, but this year we are prepared to handle those challenges.” The Trojans won three out of four games at the Glenbard East Invite over the Thanksgiving weekend – their only loss coming during the championship game against Oak Lawn. In the two games after Thanksgiving, North dismantled WSS conference foes Oak Park-River Forest, 59-42, and Glenbard West, 67-23.

Costello and sophomore Jaida Green lead the team in scoring. The Trojan captains are averaging 13.1 and 18.3 points per game, respectively, while starters Peyton Winters (11.7 points per game) and Lauren Porcelli (six points per game) have also been key offensive components. “We have scorers at every position that have stepped up this season,” Costello said. “Our offense is not about one person, but the collective unit. We come into every game with a team-first mentality and try to spread around the offense as much as possible.” As dynamic as the offense has been, Bolt believes his team’s biggest asset is its de-

fense. North is giving up an average 35.8 points per game, holding five opponents to under 40 points and three of those opponents to under 30 points. “The defense, especially in the Glenbard West game, has made a commitment to getting stops,” Bolt said. “Every time down the floor, they were ready to play defense. That has to be what we are about if we want to remain successful.” Downers Grove North played at home against York on Monday and will continue the home stand against WSS rival Hinsdale Central and standout scorer Gabby Rush on Saturday.

Bedtime routine To help eliminate bedtime frustrations, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends parents stick to a bedtime routine to positively influence their child’s sleep habits. A consistent routine — brushing teeth, changing into pajamas and reading a book — helps children go from alert to a quieter state, giving them the ability to fall asleep better.

Prunes for bones In the U.S., nearly half of all women older than 50 will experience an osteoporosis-related fracture. Recent bone health research goes beyond the typical calcium-containing foods to examine the positive link between eating fruits and vegetables and bone health, and research published in the British Journal of Nutrition has found that prunes may help keep bones strong by preventing bone mineral loss, which can lead to osteoporosis.

Time to choose For many workers, it’s time to consider insurance options By Michelle Andrews Kaiser Health News

It’s annual enrollment time, the autumn period when many people with job-based health insurance ante up for another year. Although news reports have fixated on the problems with the online health marketplaces that launched Oct. 1, for the vast majority of people that’s a nonissue. If they get insurance through a job at a company that has at least 50 employees, they probably won’t be using the marketplaces, also called exchanges. That doesn’t mean people with employer-based plans are unaffected by the health law. As employers adjust plans to meet new requirements and try to reduce their costs, people can expect to see changes next year.

Moderate increases Overall, premium increases will be moderate in 2014, averaging 5.2 percent, according to a 2013 employer survey about planned health care changes by the human resources consultant Towers Watson. Last year, the increase was projected to be 5.9 percent in 2013. But employers may raise rates disproportionately for spouses and dependents, the survey found. The health law requires plans to cover dependent children up to age 26, and most plans cover spouses too. But employers continue to try to minimize those costs by making it financially less attractive to employees to cover their family members. They may charge separately for each child on a plan, for example, or add a surcharge for covering a spouse who is also offered insurance through his or her own job. Some, such as UPS,have moved to cut off coverage entirely to spouses that have access to insurance through their own jobs.

Premium increases In the Towers Watson survey, 34 percent of employers said they planned to increase the employee share of the premium for spouse and dependent coverage by 5 percentage points or more in 2014. Last year, 21 percent planned such big increases. In contrast, 22 percent of employers said they would increase the worker’s share for employee-only coverage by 5 percentage points or more. “Everyone wants to make sure they’re not picking up the cost of covering other dependents,” says Julie Stone, a senior consultant at Towers Watson. Another change deals with the so-called Cadillac plans — those that cost more than $10,200 for an individual or $27,500 for a family. In 2018, these policies will incur an excise tax of 40 percent on the amount that pre-

SxC.HU.COM

miums exceed those totals. Stone says 60 percent of employers surveyed expect to trigger the tax if they don’t adjust their plans, and some are beginning to make incremental changes in 2014 to ratchet back on generous coverage.

Higher deductibles For employees, that will generally mean higher deductibles and copayments or coinsurance, not to mention a continued shift to account-based plans — high deductible plans paired with a health savings account or health reimbursement arrangement from the employer that the worker can use to cover out-ofpocket costs. More than half of employers offer such plans in 2013, according to Aon Hewitt’s annual employer survey, and another 30 percent are considering doing so in the next five years. A growing

number of employers are offering these plans as the only option, say experts. To encourage employees to select them, “the high-deductible plan is often subsidized to a greater degree than other types of plan,” says Craig Rosenberg, Aon Hewitt’s practice leader for health and welfare benefits administration.

Wellness programs Employees should also expect to see a continued emphasis on wellness and health management activities, including financial incentives for completing health risk assessments, keeping blood pressure, cholesterol and weight within recommended ranges, and working with health coaches to manage chronic conditions. Increasingly, employers are incorporating the financial rewards into the premium itself

rather than giving employees a cash payment for completing a health risk questionnaire, for example, says Chris Renz, a partner at human resources consultant Mercer. “It puts a lot more dollars at stake,” says Renz. “Instead of a one-time $100 reward you might see an annual $500 difference in premiums.” Workers who don’t like what their employer is offering can shop for coverage on the state exchanges. But they won’t be eligible for subsidies to bring down the cost unless their employer plan is considered unaffordable or inadequate under the health law. A plan is deemed unaffordable if employee-only coverage costs more than 9.5 percent of household income, and inadequate if it pays less than 60 percent on average of allowed medical expenses.
