By KRISTIN PEDICINI bg\[`Z`e`7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd WESTMONT – As the new athletic director at Westmont High School, Megan Wojtulewicz said she’s excited to take the program and make it into her own, working directly with the school’s coaches. Wojtulewicz, a Brookfield resident, said high school sports are important because they teach students how to manage academics and athletics at the same time. “Kids who participate in extracurricular activities do better in school because they have deeper support systems and structure,” Wojtulewicz said. “Athletics are about more than learning the sport. It’s learning to be part of a team, to be a part of something bigger than yourself, learning to win and lose – those are skills you can’t duplicate in a classroom.” Along with being the new athletic director, Wojtulewicz is also a full-time physical education teacher at WHS. She said her favorite aspect of teaching is watching the students buy into improving their fitness. “Creating the relationships and trust with students is super important,” said Wojtulewicz, who’s been in the field for six years. “Some of it is faith and that I’m portraying the fitness I preach and that takes time.” Wojtulewicz replaces Dennis Renner, who accepted a job at another school.

I wanted to compete and because of athletics I focused more on school... I chose to be an athletic director because of those experiences I had. ... It’s important to be a good listener and a collaborator with people who are part of the team and create the best environment possible.

But the grocer’s steady clientele may soon be threatened. Mariano’s, a high-end grocery chain that’s been expanding in the Chicago area, will come before the Westmont Planing and Zoning Commission tonight to propose a new, 71,000-square-foot store just two blocks west of Westbrook Market’s 63,000-squarefoot building in the Westmont Shopping Center. The problem for Kumkoski is, he said, not that his store and its 60-plus employees will have a competitor, it’s that his store will have a competitor

Suit filed against Advocate Medical Group By ED McMENAMIN \dZd\eXd`e7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd DOWNERS GROVE – A Chicago-based law firm filed a class action suit Thursday against Advocate Medical Group on behalf of millions of patients whose privacy and medical information were allegedly compromised by the theft of four computers at an administrative office in Burr Ridge in July. Advocate Medical Group is based in Downers Grove. The Chicago law firm brought the action on behalf
of a Northbrook mother and her daughter who were patients of Advocate and whose personal information was maintained at Advocate Medical Group offices in Park Ridge. The lawsuit alleges that the health care group was negligent in protecting private data and failed to use encryption and other basic security measures on behalf of its patients, according to a news release from the law firm. “In this age of advanced technology, Advocate had to realize that its unorthodox
methodology for maintaining important and private data posed a risk to the safety and security of their patients,” Clifford Law Offices senior partner Robert A. Clifford said in a statement. “Equally disturbing is the fact that an organization like Advocate would have the private and confidential information of some four million patients stored in an unencrypted environment and saved to the computers’ hard drives.” Patients were informed by letter last month that their privacy was compro-
mised when four computers containing patients’ information, including names, addresses, dates of birth and Social Security numbers were stolen from administrative offices on Touhy Avenue in the northwest suburb. Although full medical records were not on the computers, medical diagnoses, service codes and health insurance information were kept on the computers. “We deeply regret any inconvenience this incident has caused our patients who have entrusted us with their care,” Advocate Health Care’s Senior Vice President of Public Affairs and Marketing Kelly Jo Golson said in a statement Friday. “Although we are unable to comment specifically on active litigation matters,
we want to reassure our patients that we do not believe the data was targeted and we have no information that leads us to believe that the information has been misused.” Advocate Medical Group’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kevin McCune said in a statement last month that the 4.03 million patients possibly affected are being notified and are being providing free credit monitoring and identity theft protection. AMG is also taking steps to reduce the possibility of this happening again, including the addition of 24/7 security personnel at the Park Ridge facility as well as new technical safeguards. Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove is part of the Advocate health system.

Q: What is contouring? A: Tooth enamel is the hardest element in the body, but dentists can work with it to reshape a tooth either for cosmetic or functional reasons. The process of sculpting enamel is called contouring. If the goal is purely cosmetic to improve your smile, it’s called aesthetic contouring. A common type of aesthetic contouring involves the canines, or eye teeth. They can sometimes appear overly long. Rounding their edges can make them look more proportional to the neighboring teeth. A common functional purpose for contouring is to improve a patient’s bite. If teeth are not meeting the way they should, a patient could have difficulty chewing and eating. A dentist can shave off enough enamel to correct the bite. That process is called occlusal equilibration, which translates to “making the bite even.” Whether the goal is cosmetic or functional, contouring is a painless procedure and does not harm the tooth. Though the amount of enamel removed is minuscule, the results, whether in appearance or function, can be dramatic. In some cases, contouring can also be a considerably less expensive alternative to orthodontic work, which would use braces and other appliances to achieve either a cosmetic or functional goal. Ask your dentist for more information about contouring.

WESTMONT – With the school year in full swing, Westmont High School’s garden project already has produced about 300 pounds of produce, said Lisa Hootman, an environmental science teacher at the school. Hootman’s students have been busy harvesting the garden, which has produced green beans, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers and more. “The students have been working with the garden one day a week,” Hootman said. “We go out and harvest during class time, and the environmental club goes out Mondays to harvest, as well.” And students are not only benefiting from learning how to create and maintain a garden, they’re also getting fresh produce with their lunches as a result. Veggies harvested now are used in the Westmont High School cafeteria with various side

Liftomatic, a Buffalo Grove-based manufacturer of material handling equipment for drum and barrel handling applications, heard of Hootman’s project and decided to donate $500 to the garden. The company reached out to show the students that many things are involved in gardening, including manufacturing, according to Todd Berg, CEO and President of Liftomatic. “Even the way we get fed involves manufacturing,” Berg said. “Every bit of tomato in this country that goes into Prego or Ragu went in the fiber drums.” Berg, who happens to be Hootman’s uncle, said Liftomatic’s marketing department was in agreement that this was a good way to

Lisle Man uses Sept. 11 experience to pen novel By ED MCMENAMIN \dZd\eXd`e7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd Twelve years ago today, George and Barbara Banas were on a boat, halfway between Morocco and Spain. When word arrived that both World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon were struck by hijacked airplanes, the boat turned around and headed back to Tangier. “We were detained because the Moroccan government didn’t know exactly what the consequences of the attack would be on them, because there was at least one Moroccan national [who aided the attack],” said Banas, now 72. “So they didn’t know if the U.S. government would retaliate against them one way or another.” Finally, after two tense weeks of being shuffled from hotel to hotel, the couple were released back to the U.S., he said. Banas uses those two weeks as the jumping-off point for his debut fiction novel, “Terrorists and the Terchova Treasure.” First published in 2010, it was named as an honorable mention July at the Hollywood Book Festival. Banas, a resident of Lisle, gives $1 from every sale to the American Legion’s efforts to help veterans. On Amazon.com, the paperback costs $14.42. The thriller borrows stories and characters from Banas’ experiences as an Army analyst during the Vietnam War, and
then later as a government contractor and consultant to Eastern European countries, he said. The plot follows a fictionalized version of himself, an aging analyst who has to call on old friends to help foil terrorist plots in the years after 9/11. “People can read it as a sort of a thriller just looking at the action, they can look at it as a historical novel, or they can look at it on a wider scope – with a geopolitical or sociopolitical implications,” he said. The book reflects on who the American public was before 9/11, shortly after and now. “Prior to the attacks, it seems that part of the American psyche was very naive,” he said. “I think what’s happening now – certainly we’re weary about Afghanistan and Iraq, and we’d very much like to pull back and take care of our own business and be isolated. And I don’t think the world is going to let us do that.” Banas started writing the book around the time of his retirement in 2003, two years after the attack. The first pressing, in larger type, ran around 700 pages. The new, Kindle edition in normal type runs about 550 pages, he said. He hopes the added attention brought by the Hollywood Book Festival can aid his efforts to help area veterans in need. “This is kind of one way I’m able to throw some money back into the pot and help folks get some income,” he said.

Do You Have Any of the Following Conditions? " Lower Back Pain ! " Muscle spasm or strains ! " Bulging lumbar discs ! " Numbness or soreness in your legs ! " Shooting hip or thigh pain !
Here’s what some of the top medical researchers had to say about chiropractic… “Manipulation [chiropractic adjustments], with or without exercise, improved symptoms more than medical care did after both 3 and 12 months.” – British Medical Journal
Having back and leg pain can bring life to a standstill. You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive. It’s almost impossible for anyone around you to understand how you feel. You can’t remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep. You’ve got too many dreams left undone to let back pain slow you down. Too many special moments waiting to be experienced. My name is Dr. Mike DeCubellis, owner of Main Street Chiropractic. Over the past 5 years since we’ve opened the doors, I’ve seen hundreds of people with back pain leave the office pain free. Because I’ve seen it with my own eyes, I strongly “Chiropractor’s manipulation of the spine was more believe… Back pain is NOT “just a part of life” and helpful than any of the following: traction, massage, something you have to live with.
biofeedback, acupuncture, injection of steroids into the spine and back corsets, and ultrasound.” – Stanley Bigos, MD, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery This means in just a matter of weeks you could be back on the golf course, enjoying your love life, or traveling again.

reach out to younger people. â€œWhat we hope for is to reach out to young people and help them understand the big picture,â€? Berg said. â€œOur goal was to help out with the project and to make kids understand that thereâ€™s a bunch of things involved here.â€? On Thursday, Berg and other representatives from the company will present the donation to Hootman and students. The donated funds will be used for buying plants for the garden, buying more cedar for the raised beds and a soaker hose system
for better watering, Hootman said. Berg, a gardener himself, said he hopes the students gain a sense of accomplishment from the garden project. â€œGardening gives them a connection to the earth and knowing more about where the food comes from,â€? Berg said. â€œSometimes itâ€™s a struggle but it gives you a sense of victory, seeing the seed grow into something to eat.â€? â€œItâ€™s good for everyone to know where their food comes from,â€? Fregeau added. â€œIâ€™d like to see more kids get involved. Itâ€™s not just our garden, itâ€™s the whole schoolâ€™s garden. And itâ€™s good for the entire school, everyone benefits.â€?

“There is no way that we could provide the services that we do in the community without organizations like the Juniors,” said Hope’s Front Door Executive Director Janell Robinson. “They’ve also done some other things with us – coat drives, winter gear type things, mittens, gloves – which are a particular help to our homeless clients.” Austin said when she joined the Juniors, she was surprised to find the level of need there is in the community. “I wasn’t aware that people in Downers Grove needed as much help as they do,”
she said. “And it’s nice to be able to help neighbors in the community when they need it. It helps Downers Grove to be a stronger community, so that’s great.” Along with service, there is a social component, she said. “I’ve made a lot of great friendships,” she said. “And that’s been very rewarding as well. We do have a lot of fun doing what we do. It’s definitely a way to get involved in the Downers Grove community while meeting a good group of friendly women. I would encourage anyone who is looking to give back to the
community to join.” In addition to the backpacks and clothing drives, the Junior Woman’s Club helps support families with food during the holidays through the Downers Grove Area FISH Food Pantry, among other efforts. “We touch so many organizations in our community,” she said. Austin said current membership numbers is in the 40s, and she would like to double that. “We’ll be able to grow the amount of money that we give back to the community,” she said.
Giordano’s Pizza sues deli to remove its name By ED MCMENAMIN \dZd\eXd`e7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd DOWNERS GROVE – The Giordano’s Pizza chain is suing a Downers Grove deli and pizzeria that opened with the same name last month. The popular Chicago-area pizza chain filed the lawsuit Aug. 28 seeking damages from the deli, Giordano Fresh & Crispy Pizza Co., for using the similar name and trademarks on its sign and promotional materials. The deli opened last month at 2021 Ogden Ave. in Downers Grove, less than two miles from the nearest Giordano’s Pizza franchise at 5115 Main St. The deli offers pizza, subs, sandwiches, pasta, salads and catering. Giordano’s claims that the unauthorized use of its name “caused and will continue to
cause confusion in the marketplace.” The lawsuit cites one customer who emailed Giordano’s after eating at the deli, believing it was a franchise location. “The pizza was horrible,” the Aug. 25 email allegedly said. The customer also noted that the defendant’s menu stapled to the pizza box “looked like your logo” and that it was “a little too close for comfort.”
Giordano Fresh & Crispy Pizza Co. owner Nick Giordano declined comment when reached by phone Monday. The owner of the Giordano’s franchise location on Main Street, Dino Alexakos, said he was worried when he saw a flier for the new deli that there would be “mass confusion.” “I don’t know what would have happened if someone did a Google search for ‘Giordano’s in Downers Grove’ – who would have come up?”
he said. The lawsuit, filed by Giordano’s corporate office, also claims that text on the bottom of the deli’s menu, stating “Not affiliated with Giordano’s Pizza,” shows the owner was aware he was infringing on the famous chain’s name. The lawsuit asks the deli to remove “Giordano” from all signage, advertisements, brochures and other promotional material. The suit also requests triple the amount of damages suffered by Gior-
dano’s along with all profits made by the deli. It also asks for reimbursement for legal fees, any necessary corrective advertising and other damages. After the filing of the lawsuit, all signage using the name “Giordano” was removed from the front of the business. The door was locked Thursday, despite an “Open” sign in the window. The business is also referred to as Giordano Delicatessen in the lawsuit.

DOWNERS GROVE – If there is a charity drive in Downers Grove, there’s a good chance the Junior Woman’s Club is volunteering or assisting in some way. “We have donated more than 1 million hours of volunteer service, and more than a half-million dollars in donations to our community over the span of our club, over the past 50 years,” Downers Grove Junior Woman’s Club Vice President Kelsey Austin said. This month, it’s looking to grow its membership with a
new member social event at 7 p.m. Sept. 24 at Emmett’s Ale House, 5200 Main St. Anyone interested in joining or learning more about the club is invited to attend. The club is open to all women. Austin said adding members will help the club’s efforts to expand its scholarship offerings in Downers Grove. Last month, the group capped off a backpacks and back-to-school supplies drive with Hope’s Front Door, the human services charity in Downers Grove formerly known as The Walk-in Ministry.

Township’s electrical aggregation program moves forward The unincorporated residents and small-business owners of Downers Grove Township will soon have the opportunity to weigh in regarding the township’s electrical aggregation program. Two public meetings will be held to raise questions and concerns about the program. The first was held Aug. 29, while the second will be at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Chinese Christian Mandarin Church, 9S565 Clarendon Hills Road in Willowbrook. Residents approved a binding proposition on the April 9 ballot that authorized the township to pool or aggregate unincorporated residential and small commercial electricity accounts and negotiate a lower price for the electricity supply. Because of electrical deregulation, consumers can choose their electric supplier while continuing to receive reliable electricity delivery service from ComEd. The township, along with its energy consultant, Solo Energy Solutions, will use a competitive solicitation process to select a supplier that is certified by the Illinois Commerce Commission and registered to serve residential and commercial electricity accounts. Solo will be working on the township’s behalf to lock in favorable rates, track market
COMMUNITY VOICE Kathleen Abbate changes, manage risk and budget for long-term stability before an optimum electrical contract can be established. No matter which supplier is chosen, ComEd will continue to deliver the same services it does today. “This is the time for township residents to learn about and discuss the advantages of electrical aggregation,” said Frank Wurster, Downers Grove Township supervisor. Wurster stated that results from more than 600 other Illinois communities that have used electrical aggregation can reduce utility costs while maintaining ComEd services. “This program can provide immediate benefits for township residents and businesses by reducing monthly electricity bills. ComEd will continue to maintain the wires, read the meters, send monthly payments and ensure system safety and integrity,” he said.

**Special Announcement** The Unveiling o f Our Orchid Rooms! What are the Orchid Rooms?
These rooms are specifically designed for cancer patients or clients with the need of a private environment with resources limited in the beauty industry. For these clients, we wanted to do more than just wig sales and wig maintenance. Wild Orchid Salon offers a private salon entrance and private rooms where you still feel like you are in a pampered salon in a comfortable setting and are able to relax in privacy. Our services include consultations, wig sales, wig fittings, make-up lessons for facial hair loss & facials. As the hair starts to grow back, color and texture can change. Our stylists will help with this process, offering new styles and styling techniques. We have stylists who are cancer survivors and know what you are going through. They will make the experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible. New clients mention this ad for 20% off any salon service. Existing clients receive a gift as a token of our appreciation when mentioning this ad at your next appointment. Expires 11-15-13, not valid with any other offer.

Mad Hatter Day supports fighting childrenâ€™s cancer
Fund offers connections, credibility for DuPage nonprofits By NATHAN LURZ ecliq7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd More than 40 nonprofits in DuPage County receive some degree of funding from the countyâ€™s Human Services Grant Fund, which vets and approves money for agencies that improve the quality of life for residents. In the nearly two decades the fund has existed, it has become a million-dollar source of revenue for the agencies it aids, which range from addiction treatment facilities to homeless shelters. Since its inception, said Mary Keating, DuPage County director of community services, the Human Services Grant Fund has been a â€œrecognition by the county of the important work that nonprofits do.â€? Nonprofit organizations considered for funding go through an extensive screening process, Keating

said. They must be operational within the county for
a minimum of three years and provide a direct and basic human service to the residents of DuPage County. Those that have a track record of assisting the poor and have worked with the county previously are preferred. There also is an application process that includes financial assessments and submission of a detailed monetary request plan. Qualified agencies are graded on a scale that awards a percentage of requested funds â€“ ranging from 90 percent to the minimum of $3,391. Keating said almost $2 million in requests were made last year. â€œThere are quite a few different areas of need in the community, and the more areas you can touch, the more good youâ€™re doing,â€? County Board member Rob Larsen said. â€œOn the other side of the coin, having this stamp of approval
from the county helps them raise funds and helps them perform their job.â€? Keating said the fundâ€™s rigorous approval system ensures that agencies awarded recognition are stable, transparent and trustworthy. Executive Director of Sharing Connections Chris Cholewa said the grant gives her furniture bank the ability to better serve those who have recently moved into housing, but donâ€™t have the income for furniture. This year, the organization asked for $48,000 and received $18,400. But she said that the opportunity to network with other service providers in the area alone has been worthwhile. â€œWe, like others, donâ€™t duplicate services,â€? she said. â€œEveryone refers their clients to us, and we only do our job. Weâ€™re not doing social work, weâ€™re not doing anything else, we can focus
on what weâ€™re good at.â€? Becky Beilfuss, executive director of the Teen Parent Connection in Glen Ellyn, said her organization used the funds to provide services for young parents. â€œReally our goal is to build that seamless avenue of care so families who need it can be taken care of,â€? she said. â€œWe donâ€™t have to reinvent the wheel because there are already experts out there doing housing or mental health.â€? Larsen said by cultivating nonprofit interactions and providing an unofficial endorsement, the county can make a greater impact for its dollar. â€œThere is a lot of need in this county, but there are a lot of organizations out there looking to help people in need,â€? he said. â€œSome guidance and maybe a little bit of seed money can get those resources pointed in the right direction.â€?

RUSE ENTRY CRIME ALERT The Police Department alerts residents to be aware of a scam being used by criminals to gain home entry and commit theft. In two recent incidents which occurred in Downers Grove, residents reported that unknown individuals gained entry to their homes under false pretenses. In the first incident, a man was met at his front door by a woman who was crying hysterically that she had lost her cat. She requested his assistance and he accompanied her to the backyard to search for the cat. After about 15 minutes, they ended the search and the woman left the home. The resident later discovered that numerous pieces of jewelry had been taken. The alleged female suspect is described as being in her forties, 5’6” tall, with brown hair and a dark complexion. In the second incident, a man unknown to the resident came to the home and lured the homeowner to the backyard under the guise of wanting to show her something. The woman became suspicious and requested that the man come back at a later time and speak to her son. The man left in a white van without incident. The Police Department reminds everyone to be very cautious when allowing unknown people to enter their homes. It is also important to be suspicious of anyone who attempts to lure you outside your home. If you have any concerns whether the person at your door is legitimate, immediately call 9-1-1.

:fek`el\ifdgX^\* just two blocks away. â€œI donâ€™t know if I see a scenario of me being here with Marianoâ€™s next to me,â€? he said. â€œIt doesnâ€™t make sense. There probably is a place for Marianoâ€™s here in Westmont, but Iâ€™m just not quite sure why theyâ€™d want to put a competitor directly next me.â€? According to Westmont Community Development Director Shannon Malik, the location is the only one that could support and suit the needs of a Marianoâ€™s. â€œWeâ€™ve seen grocery stores continue to operate in close proximity,â€? Malik said. â€œAnd itâ€™s our hope that both businesses could survive.â€? Attempts to reach Marianoâ€™s on Tuesday were unsuccessful. Malik added that Westmont is home to about 15 neighborhood or specialty grocery stores, including Jewel, Standard Market and Aldi. None are within one mile of Westbrook Market. Kumkoski says his store has operated on a profit margin the past 10 years that is â€œsmaller than a big chain can achieve.â€? â€œI canâ€™t get into a price war,â€? he said. â€œI think the village knows that, yet they are giving the competitor the financial advantage. I wish I understood why.â€? Kumkoski also says the village is prepared to offer Marianoâ€™s an â€œincentive-ladenâ€? deal to open up in the village. The property is within the South Westmont Busi-
ness TIF District. Malik said she couldnâ€™t comment on any incentives that may be offered to Marianoâ€™s. Malik said Marianoâ€™s would be a catalyst for economic development in the area. â€œMarianoâ€™s is an experienced grocery store,â€? she said. â€œThe parent company is Roundyâ€™s and the owner was formerly with Dominickâ€™s. They have the experience that goes along with it and there will be new jobs added to the community, as well.â€? A public hearing is scheduled for 7 p.m. tonight at Westmont Village Hall, 31 W. Quincy St., during the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. The meeting is open to anyone who has any comments or wants to learn about the project, Malik said. She added that after the public hearing, the proposal would go to the Westmont Village Board for a final vote, possibly in October. Kumkoski plans to attend the meeting and has been encouraging his customers and employees to speak up at the meeting. â€œAdding a Marianoâ€™s to our community is not a problem â€“ there may be some upside to that to attract more shoppers in from surrounding communities. But putting it right next to an existing store that already contributes sizable tax revenue and employs more than 60 people? Thatâ€™s not very good commercial planning,â€? he said.

Elmhurst’s Café Amano is comfortably elegant ELMHURST – The concept of a “downtown cafe” can range from rickety outfit with a counter and a couple chairs all the way to a gourmet dining experience that features cozy outdoor seating. Fortunately for Elmhurst, Café Amano falls into the latter category. During a recent visit, I was inclined to sit outdoors and get a true cafe experience, but it was just a touch chilly that evening, and my dining companion and I reluctantly opted to eat inside. But while we missed out on the ambience of Elmhurst’s thriving open-air experience, we were more than compensated by the exquisitely designed decor indoors. Everything about the restaurant says, “casual, but elegant,” from the tasteful logo on one wall, to the display of wines as you first enter, to the abundant dark wood trim and dramatic ceiling-hung light fixtures. It’s an environment where you easily could have a business meeting, take your visiting family, or just grab lunch one day when you’re in the mood for something far better than a homemade sandwich. We started out with the shrimp and artichoke saute from the small plates menu. The artichoke hearts and gigantic Gulf shrimp were sauteed in butter, garlic, white wine and lemon, which made for an incredibly flavorful beginning. Choosing an entree was tough with all the appealing options. I went for the chicken dijonnaise, and my companion selected the filet mignon. There also are plenty of salads, pastas and seafood options that will have to wait for another day. My chicken was topped with a generous helping of prosciutto and Gruyere cheese, then smothered with a “whole grain mustard shiitake mushroom cream sauce.” The meat was perfectly tender and juicy, and the cavalcade of savory

flavors gave me something different to detect in every bite. My companion was just as pleased with the beef, served with a “shiitake mushroom port wine reduction sauce.” The verdict? “Tender and juicy, it cut like butter, and
tasted phenomenal.” After such a satisfying, rich meal, some folks might be tempted to stop there, but we pressed on – the dessert menu beckoned. We placed orders for the crème brûlée and the deep-dish apple tart, and we were soon greeted by

Downers Grove North quarterback David Edwards surveys Hinsdale South’s defense during the Trojans’ 28-0 win Friday in Downers Grove.
Trojan ‘D’ to be tested vs. state champs By JASON ROSSI aifjj`7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd DOWNERS GROVE – Two games played, two shutouts for Downers Grove North’s football team. After a 45-0 win over Lockport in the season opener, the Trojans followed with a 28-0 win over Hinsdale South in a West Suburban Conference crossover game Friday at Carstens Field. North (2-0) blocked two punts (one each by Vontae Diggs and Gareth Jones) and had five tackles for loss in a game that turned into a blowout courtesy of two fourth-quarter touchdowns – a David Edwards pass to Vontae Diggs and a Charles Creamer run.

“They’re flying around right now,” North coach John Wander said the of the defense. “They’re hitting and if we continue to do that we’ll be in our games. We’ll be in every football game if we can continue to do that.”
Though they’ve won in decisive fashion twice to start the season, the Trojans will find out just where they stand when they welcome defending Class 7A state champion Glenbard West for a West Suburban Silver
conference clash Friday night. The Hilltoppers also are defending WSS champs. The game could go a long way to determining the WSS race as North and West are considered contenders. More strong defensive play will be necessary for the Trojans, and they’ll need the offense to replicate its fourth-quarter performance from Friday. “Offense didn’t finish in the red zone first half,” Wander said. “Then we get the ball the second half and turn it over and we said, ‘OK, we’ve had enough of this,’ and our kids responded.” The Hilltoppers responded to a Week 1 loss by throttling Morton 68-7 in their WSC crossover game Satur-
day, but the Trojans aren’t lacking for confidence as they get set to face one of the state’s premier programs. “We can be very good. In my opinion we’re the best team out there,” Creamer said. “We’re going to face Glenbard West and we’re going to see. That’s all I’m thinking about right now.” It’s only Week 3 of the regular season, but Friday night’s clash should have a playoff-like atmosphere more akin to a mid-November game. The keys to North’s success are simple. “Play sound football, don’t turn the ball over and I think it’ll be one heck of a game Friday night,” Wander said.

Bears can’t let Adrian Peterson beat them Hub Arkush CHICAGO – With all of the buildup to the opener against the Bengals and the way the Bears struggled before finally prevailing over a quality opponent, it will be difficult to take the Vikings as seriously. Some will be tempted to put this one in the win column before taking a hard look at the task at hand. That would be a huge mistake. While the Vikings do appear to be a better matchup for the Bears, the fact is they have an awful lot in common with the Bengals. Have we forgotten already that Minnesota had an identical 10-6 record to Cincinnati last year and, like the Bengals, were first round playoff losers? Even more to the point, should we ignore the fact that it was the Vikings who knocked the Bears out of a play-
off spot last season with a superior record in the NFC North and a fairly sound 21-14 thumping in week 14? Take the Vikings lightly at your own peril. If the Bears do, they’ll be 1-1 after two weeks of the season. The good news is that if the Bears do stay focused and prepare properly for Minnesota, this is a game they should win. The biggest difference in the Vikings and the Bengals is Andy Dalton is a quarterback who can beat you while Minnesota’s Christian Ponder is more likely to beat the Vikings. After an allegedly strong preseason, Ponder struggled in the Vikings opener in Detroit, going 18-28 for 236 yards and one 1 TD, but throwing three picks. The Vikings can’t win if Ponder is that generous with the Bears. But the Vikes absolutely can knock off the Bears and anybody else if the NFL’s reigning MVP, Adrian Peterson, takes over the game. In two outings vs. the Bears last year, Peterson totaled 49 carries for 262 yards and two TDs, going over 100 yards on
the ground in both games and adding eight receptions for 46 yards. On A.P.’s first carry of 2013, he went 78 yards for a touchdown. But the Lions actually held him to 17 yards on 15 carries the rest of the way, although he did rush for another score and catch four passes for 18 yards and a third TD. Minnesota’s top three receivers – Greg Jennings, Kyle Rudolph and 1st round draft choice Cordarrelle Patterson – were held to 6 catches for 70 yards between them last week. Jerome Simpson did have seven catches for 140 yards. On defense, the Vikings had a horrible opener in Detroit, allowing 469 yards to the Lions including 352 through the air. While Jarred Allen did notch his first sack of the season, it was the only time Matt Stafford was pressured ail day. We should also note that the Vikings defense allowed four of its last five 2012 foes to go over 400 yards. The Vikings will have to be a completely different team this week
to push the Bears at home. They can be if Kevin Williams gets healthy and Everson Griffen, Brian Robison and Sharrif Floyd decide to help Allen push the pocket. The Vikings secondary is iffy, but Chad Greenway is a Pro Bowler at outside linebacker and Eric Henderson is capable in the middle. At the end of the day, though, this one will come down to A.D., as in “All Day” Adrian Peterson. The Bears did a nice job holding the Bengals to 21 carries for 63 yards on the ground, but this won’t be Benjarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard. The Bears have handled A.P. better than most, facing him twice in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2012 and once in 2010 and 2011. Peterson is 217-1,085, 5.0 yards per carry and 13 TDs career vs. the Bears. He’s been held under 100 yards rushing in five of his 10 games but has scored in all but two. The NFL is certainly all about “on any given Sunday.” But if the Bears don’t let Peterson beat them, it’s unlikely the Vikings will.

47 yards). Only one of the 10 ran for over 100 yards, and five were held to under 50 yards! If you passed on receivers like Demaryius Thomas, A.J. Green or Larry Fitzgerald – or quarterbacks such as Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees – you are probably kicking yourself about now. On to Week Two …
MATCHUPS TO EXPLOIT Vikings at Bears, noon Sunday
The Bears’ offense started slowly against the Bengals, but picked up steam as the game progressed. The Vikings’ defense allowed 469 yards to the Lions. The Bears
might not be able to match Detroit’s offensive weapons, but they should have success Sunday. Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall are obvious plays, and Martellus Bennett has a chance to be a top-five tight end this week. The Bears’ defense is another obvious play; if the Vikes fall behind, Christian Ponder is probably good for a couple of turnovers, at least. If you need a spot starter this week, consider Jay Cutler and Alshon Jeffery.
Rams at Falcons, noon Sunday
If Arizona can rack up 390 yards of offense on the Rams, it would seem likely that the Falcons – still sore from a tough loss in New Orleans – will enjoy offensive success. Julio Jones is an obvious start, and Matt Ryan is a topfive QB this week. Look for Steven Jackson to bounce back against his old team.
Lions at Cardinals, 3:05 Sunday
Carson Palmer and Mat-
thew Stafford are solid starts in a game that should feature a lot of points and little defense. Reggie Bush appears to be a must-start every week, as are Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. Rashard Mendenhall might be worth a start if you are thin at running back.
MATCHUP TO AVOID 49ers at Seahawks, 7:30 Sunday
As crazy as this might sound, you might want to consider back-up options for Colin Kaepernick this week. The 49ers struggled mightily in Seattle last season. Kaepernick finished with 244 yards passing, one TD and one interception. In two games against the Seahawks last year, the 49ers managed a combined 26 points. The Seahawks’ defense may actually be better than it was a year ago. Also consider other options for Frank Gore. It would be hard to sit Vernon Davis or Anquan Boldin, but expect drop-offs.

In my preseason column, you were warned about conventional wisdom in fantasy football. I suggested that since every fantasy football “expert” was imploring you to take running backs early and often, you might want to consider an alternate strategy. Some of you took issue with the opinion. In fact, one reader called the logic “deeply flawed.” It is way too early to say “I told you so” … but I’m saying it anyway. The events of the first week are making me look like a genius. If you followed the advice of ESPN.com expert Chris Harris, who said on the Waddle & Silvy radio show that you should take “five or six” running backs in the first 10 rounds … well, your season is probably already over. Let’s review Harris’ top 10
overall players, all RBs: 8[i`Xe G\k\ij\e1 93 yards rushing, two TDs rushing and one receiving. This was a great day, and, in my defense, I did state that AP was worthy of the top pick. It should be noted that he gained only 15 yards on his final 17 carries. 8i`Xe=fjk\i1 18 carries for 57 yards. DXij_XneCpeZ_1 43 yards rushing.

Sentinels look to put losses behind them By JASON ROSSI firstname.lastname@example.org PLANO – Coach Otto Zeman’s comments were brief after his Westmont football team fell to Plano, 72-14, Friday night. “We didn’t play very well at all,” Zeman said. The lopsided result against the Reapers dropped
the Sentinels to 0-2 on the season after they fell to Herscher 51-12 in the opener. Although the scoreboard didn’t indicate it, Westmont made incremental steps forward. “We started moving the ball better offensively, but then we had some bad snaps that hurt us,” Zeman said. “That took us out of any
rhythm we might have had.” Zeman lauded the efforts of two-way sophomore lineman Anthony Griffiths and quarterback Tim Doll against Plano. “Anthony Griffiths played the whole game and just played hard on every play,” Zeman said. “Tim Doll improved. He got better, and he can still get better.”
Things won’t get any easier in Week 3 as Westmont takes on perennial Interstate Eight Small-contender Wilmington on the road. The Sentinels can’t dwell on last week’s loss. “We had a really bad night,” Zeman said of the Plano game. “We all have to move ahead and get better as a team.”
Mustangs look to rebound after slow start to season Game breakdown
By JASON ROSSI email@example.com HILLSIDE – Maybe more frustrating than starting the year 0-2 is the way Downers Grove South’s football team has gotten to that point. “We’ve shown flashes of being a pretty good team, and then there are times we’ve shown our weaknesses and it’s cost us,” coach Mark Molinari said. “I think right now we’re still trying to find ourselves.” On Friday night, South found itself on the short end of a 19-12 contest against host Proviso West. After being shut out in a Week 1 loss to Benet, the Mustangs jumped out to a 6-0 lead on an Alec Arvanitakis run. When the Pirates leveled the score at 6-6, South responded with Le’Devin Smith’s 3-yard scoring scamper in the second quarter for a 12-6 halftime lead. But the Mustangs couldn’t maintain that firsthalf momentum and were outscored 13-0 in the second half. “We had a hard time running the ball at times and we had a hard time stopping the run,” Molinari said. “We were very inconsistent.” The Mustangs also struggled in the kicking game, missing both extra-point attempts and kicking the ball

Downers Grove South’s Javon Turner looks for running room against Proviso West on Friday in Hillside. out of bounds three times on kickoffs. Molinari said the key to turning things around starts with taking care of the little things. He’s al-
ready seen some of that happening. “I do think we were better offensively [Friday] and we did get on track there a little bit,” the coach said.
“The defense has been really successful stopping the pass against two pretty good passing teams, so we’re extremely happy about that. We just need to be more consistent running the ball and stopping the run.” Despite the slow start to the season, the Mustangs’ primary goal is still to win the West Suburban Gold conference title. “Our goal is still to win conference, and that’s still possible,” Molinari said. “We’ve played two playoff teams from last year and we’ve competed with both of them into the fourth quarter. We’re not in bad shape. We can still be a dangerous football team. We just want to be 1-0 [in the WSG] at the end of the week.”
WESTMONT – The long and short of Westmont’s boys soccer team can be described succinctly. “We don’t have many guys coming back,” coach Ron Neurauter said. Seniors Scott Larem (forward), Michael Robertson (midfielder) and Jordan Slagle (6-foot-4 keeper) comprise the bulk of the Sentinels’ returning talent. The team’s depth and level of experience took a hit when senior defender Jesus Oregel was lost for the season to an ACL in-
Westmont Conference:@ek\ijkXk\<`^_k Home field:0'0FXbnff[;i`m\#N\jkdfek 2012 record:,$(*fm\iXcc#*$+@$/ Coach:IfeE\liXlk\i Top returners:JZfkkCXi\d#ji%=2D`Z_X\cIfY\ikjfe#ji%D2Afi[Xe JcX^c\#ji%>B Promising newcomers:DXli`q`f8e[fefgflcfj#ji%D&=2J\i^`fJXc^X[f#ji%= jury. “He played forward for three years for us but he came in this year wanting to be our central defender,” Neurauter said. “He looked really good back there, but after two days
at defender he went down in practice.” But Westmont could do worse than build around Larem, Slagle and Robertson this year. Larem was the team’s leading scorer and an Inter-
state Eight all-conference selection last year. In his second season in net, Slagle provides stability at the back of the defense. Robertson joins the other two as a team captain. However, of the 24 players on the roster, eight are freshmen or sophomores. Already a young group, the back line was affected even more after Oregel went down. “Defensively we have a lot of new faces,” Neurauter said. “It’s a completely new group.” Two transfers – Maurizio Andonopoulos and Sergio Salgado – don’t provide too
much in the way of defense but do add to the amount of senior leadership. “Lately we’ve been playing Sergio at defense, but as a forward he stands out,” Neurauter said. Andonopoulos netted the Sentinels’ first goal of the season in a 5-1 loss to Lisle on Sept. 3. With so many newcomers in the mix, Neurauter has been walking a fine line between working on basics and prepping his team for upcoming games in practice. A main goal this season is to surpass last year’s win total (five) while also building toward the future.
Mustangs hope to mine for Gold By JASON ROSSI aifjj`7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd DOWNERS GROVE – More often than not, a team in any sport will develop as the season progresses. Downers Grove South’s soccer team seems to have skipped the development part and gone straight into playing well. The Mustangs jumped out to a 3-1-1 start and did so against some elite competition. Their loss came to a powerful Fremd team, the tie was against a Hinsdale Central squad that could be a state title contender, and they have defeated Glenbard East, Oswego East and Lincoln-Way East. A Jordan Pawlicki goal on a Mike Flores feed with just over a minute to play helped South down Oswego East, 2-1, in the teams’ final game at the Hinsdale Invite. “This year’s team has shown a lot character early in the season by finding ways to score late goals when they were needed most,” coach Jon Stapleton said. “It’s a very tight group who seem to be playing for each other.” The Mustangs already have been tested this season,

and they will continue to be. They head to Indianapolis this weekend for the Midwest Classic tournament, and later in the season they will play conference-foe Hinsdale South, West Suburban Gold-heavyweight Morton, crosstown-rival Downers Grove North and a solid Naperville North team over a five-game span from Sept. 24 to Oct. 5. “We always approach the season as a process to become

As far as team goals, there are really two the Mustangs have discussed. “Our goals each year have always been pretty similar – we want to challenge for the WSG
title and make a deep post season run,” Stapleton said. “The conference is once again very strong. If you don’t come prepared to play, it’s difficult to win in this conference.”
