proved during the Dec. 12 village board meeting. The village anticipates taking possession of the property in early 2014 and plans to assist with relocating the existing businesses there by April 30. Community Development Director Michael Mays said there are potential locations for the businesses throughout town. “It’s the village’s desire to identify locations in Woodridge and identify what is the best fit for [the business-

es],” Mays said. While some business owners in the center would not comment on the settlement, John Panicola, owner of the strip mall’s 7-Eleven, said the corporation has already been in contact with the village to find a new location but so far the search has been unsuccessful. “It’d be great if I could stay in town,” he said. Panicola, who has owned the store since 1988, said he’s more worried about his seven employees than himself.

“I’m hoping I can find a place to open up in town... so I could take them with me,” Panicola said. A survey of residents conducted by the Woodridge Park District in 2010 determined the community saw a need for a rec center, according to Park District executive director Mike Adams. “We’re limited on time and space [at the Community Center],” Adams said. “It’s been pretty clear that there’s a need for more indoor programming space geared toward athletics,

agency filed an eminent domain lawsuit after Illinois American Water refused the agency’s offer of $37.5 million to purchase the pipeline. The agency has accused the company of hiking rates for profit during the last decade, and if the eminent domain is granted, the governing bodies have the power to seize private property without the owner’s consent. However, the eminent case is not expected to go to court until 2014 or early 2015. At the Dec. 9 meeting, Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar prepared residents for

an even lengthier legal battle once it does reach the courts. “It is going to be a slow process,” Claar said. “But that’s what you have when you have an unwilling seller.” Representatives of Illinois American Water declined comment on the status of the legal proceedings, but IAW Senior Manager of Field Services and Production Michael Smyth hypothesized that the longer the eminent domain case takes, the more money it will cost the agency and the taxpayers it represents. “Agency expenditures since June of 2012 could reach

over a million dollars by next year,” Smyth said. Smyth also countered stating that the agency has yet to specifically detail how they will lower residents’ water bills. “We have heard over and over again from our customers about their desire for a plan from their elected officials, yet no plan has been offered by Agency members,” Smyth said. “They continue to spend taxpayer dollars which is an absolute disservice to our customers and the residents of the water agency communities.”

Just months before going to trial seeking eminent domain, the Village of Woodridge agreed to a $2.25 million settlement to acquire the Janes Avenue Shopping Center.

WRR

WOODRIDGE – The Northern Will County Water Agency briefly held a quarterly meeting on Dec. 9, approving expenditures and digging its heels in for an expected legal battle as it attempts to take over a privately owned water pipeline. Entrenched in an ongoing struggle to gain control of the 30-mile Bedford Park transmission pipeline from the privately held company Illinois American Water, the agency approved $80,000 in legal and engineering fees during a

10-minute public meeting on Dec. 9. During the previous quarterly meeting in September, the agency heads approved a $662,500 budget, $521,000 of which was covered by Bolingbrook. Comprised of Woodridge, Bolingbrook, Romeoville, Lemont and Homer Glen, the Northern Will County Water Agency was formed in order to purchase and take over the pipeline, which distributes water to some if not many of the residences in the five towns. This past January, the

WOODRIDGE – Just months before going to trial seeking eminent domain, the village of Woodridge agreed to a $2.25 million settlement to acquire the Janes Avenue Shopping Center. The village and Woodridge Park District sought the shopping center – about 4 acres of land at the northeast corner of 83rd Street and Janes Avenue – in hopes of building a long-awaited and much-needed athletic facility. Now with the property acquired, the Park District will take the lead in building and financing the rec center. The shopping center, previously owned by Mel Spohn, is home to 16 units, some of which are unoccupied. The agreement was ap-

fitness and health.” In total, the rec center is projected to cost about $18.6 million, with another $2.5 million in grants funding construction. The remaining costs would be covered through reserve funds, Adams said. Now, with the land acquired, the Park District can begin the next phase – getting the architect and engineer on board to begin the design and developing – according to Adams. Adams said the Park District is anticipating to begin construction in spring 2015.. “As we go through, we’ll continue to seek public feedback,” Adams said. “The next [one] will be on the design of the project, so the residents will have a good idea of what it will look like throughout the process.”

DOWNERS GROVE – Downers Grove police are looking for two teenage boys in a blue SUV who allegedly offered a ride to a 10-year-old girl walking about 8:15 p.m. Dec. 17 near Downers Grove North High School, 4436 Main St. The girl told police she was walking when the vehicle stopped alongside her and asked if she needed a ride. The passenger appeared to be between 14 and 15 years old and had short blonde hair. Police asked if anyone has information about this incident

to call 630-434-5600 or 911. Police remind children to be aware of strangers and report any concerns immediately to police.

Contact Target in case of credit card fraud Target shoppers who suspect unauthorized activity on their credit or debit cards should contact the corporation, according to a news release from the company. The Minneapolis-based corporation confirmed Thursday that up to 40 millions credit and debit cards could be at risk following a secu-

rity breach that started last month, the release said. The national retail giant is investigating the hack, which reportedly began on Black Friday (Nov. 29) and extended to Dec. 15, the company is reporting. Target alerted authorities and financial institutions immediately after it was made aware of the breach, according to the company. The breach reportedly involved almost all Target stores in the United States. Shoppers can call Target at 866-852-8680.

DOWNERS GROVE – For the hundreds of families the Downers Grove Area FISH Food Pantry supports on a weekly basis, so much depends on a red cargo van. Volunteers like Alan Chandler drive the van about 200 miles a week to area grocery stores, churches, schools and other food donors, hauling back hundreds of pounds of food to the pantry for distribution. Unfortunately, the 1999 Ford has seen better days. “It’s nickel-and-diming us to death,” Chandler said. Another volunteer, June Miller, said the charity is making repairs necessary to keep it running, but that it is clearly in need of a new – or at least newer – van. “We just had a new starter [installed],” Miller said. “They had gone out to make their pick up, gone over to the store, and it wouldn’t start to come back to the pantry. And I guess they had to switch loads, and it had to be towed in to have that fixed. It’s things like that, that are going wrong.” This holiday season, FISH is putting out an appeal to anyone who might be able to donate a better cargo van, or offer a used one for sale at discount. “We have a certain amount that we can pay,” Miller said. “We just can’t pay full price for a brand new one.” A donation would be tax-deductible. Miller said the deteriorating van, which has about

114,000 miles of city driving, also creates safety concerns. FISH also had to replace the brakes, which recently went out as someone was driving it. There is also exhaust that creeps into the vehicle, she said, the heat and AC only work on full blast. It also needs new bearings, among other repairs. “It’s a rust bucket,” Miller said. “We’re having the thing looked over by a person in town who does our repairs. And we’re getting a full evaluation with a price tag.” FISH supports a regular clientele of 135 families with food, in addition to other community support. “Those regular customers come down to the basement and pick up the bag they’re entitled, too,” she said. “But up on the street level, we have all kinds of fresh food that comes from the grocery store that [is distributed]. Potatoes and apples and bread by the pallet load, is sitting there. Anything left over from up stairs goes to senior housing or is driven down to Romeoville to another pantry. Nothing is wasted.” FISH Food Pantry helps families from Downers Grove, Lisle and Darien with food. Families from Westmont and Woodridge are entitled to clothing and other help.

Commending our youth for a job well done is important. That’s why it was nice to see three Woodridge kids – Anita Cikoch, Anthony Turrubiates and Lauren Weglarz – honored as Woodridge Youth Citizens of the Year earlier this month. Great job Anita, Anthony and Lauren! Two local women are doing their part to help young girls navigate adolescence. Sandra McDonnell and Mary Ellen Young, a former District 58 board member, have launched “Elements for Girls,” a book to help guide young girls through life. There aren’t enough initiatives like these, so kudos to Sandra and Mary Ellen. If you want to know more about the book, visit www.AuthenticMe.biz.

There are many joyous sounds that are associated with the holiday season. At People’s Resource Center, we also celebrate some of the lovely sounds that are heard each day at PRC: • The crunch of bags as they are filled with healthy, nutritious food to feed a family • The harmonious voices of students learning to speak English • The hum of computers as they are repaired and the sounds of joy as students learn to master them • The swish of the paintbrush against canvases in an art class. We are so grateful for the many supporters and volunteers who make the work of People’s Resource Center possible. May your holiday traditions bring you joy and may the spirit of the season remain with you all the year through.

TIPS FOR SENIORS ON DENTAL CARE Q: Are there any special considerations regarding dental care that seniors should keep in mind? A: Each stage of life presents its special challenges for dental care. The senior years are no exception. Some seniors think that as they age, trips to the dentist become less necessary. However, it’s just as important for a senior as it is for a thirtysomething to visit the dentist at least twice a year. One reason is that the roots of the teeth become more exposed as we age, and consequently more vulnerable to cavities. Exposed roots are also more sensitive to hot and cold. In addition to being an uncomfortable sensation, this sensitivity can begin to affect a person’s diet, with certain foods being avoided. Anti-sensitivity toothpaste can help, but if you’re feeling temperature sensitivity you should see a dentist. The cause of the discomfort may be a cracked tooth. Also, as we age, fillings can chip or weaken, opening the door for decay. In your senior years you also are more likely to be taking a variety of medications, which can affect your oral health. Keeping your dentist informed of your medication regimen is another reason for consistent visits. If you wear dentures, you know they need periodic adjustment to reflect the changes in your mouth. The list goes on. As you grow older, keep up your routines of brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist regularly.

Shaw Media to buy The Herald-News SHAW MEDIA DIXON – Shaw Media announced Monday that it has agreed to acquire the assets of The Herald-News in Joliet from Sun-Times Media. The purchase is expected to close during the first week of January. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Herald-News has been serving Joliet, Will County and Grundy County communities for more than 150 years

and will continue as part of Shaw Media’s newspaper group. “We are excited to bring The Herald-News into our established, and growing, family-owned media portfolio,” Shaw Media President John Rung said. “We expect to maintain the storied tradition of serving the Joliet region with a high-quality, community-oriented newspaper.” “We have found a great

buyer for The Herald-News in Shaw Media,” said Tim Knight, president of SunTimes Media. “This sale will allow the Sun-Times to focus its resources on transforming its core products.” Shaw Media, based in Dixon, is the third oldest continuously owned and operated family media company in the nation. It is the parent company of Suburban Life Media. The purchase of The Herald-News adds to Shaw Me-

dia’s growing portfolio of publications in the Chicago suburbs. It follows the 2012 purchase of Downers Grovebased Suburban Life Media, which added 22 weekly publications in Cook, DuPage, Kane and Will counties to the company’s award-winning publications in Crystal Lake, DeKalb, Dixon, Grayslake, Morris, Princeton, St. Charles and Sterling in Illinois, and in Newton and Creston in Iowa.

Shaw names three to vice president posts SHAW MEDIA DIXON – Shaw Media’s Board of Directors elected three executives to serve as vice presidents and officers of the company. At its Dec. 12 meeting, the company elected Don T. Bricker vice president of suburban publishing, J. Tom Shaw vice president of digital media, and Ben Shaw vice president of technology. Shaw Media is the parent company of Suburban Life Media. “This is an exciting time for our company,” said John

Rung, President of Shaw Media. “We are fortunate to have many talented people in our company. We are particularly pleased that our Board of Directors has recognized Don, J. Tom and Ben with increased responsibility. I look forward to working with them as we chart the course for a successful future.” Bricker joined Shaw Media in 2008 as publisher of the company’s Kane and DeKalb County publications. He was named regional publisher and group general manager earlier this year. Before joining Shaw, Bricker spent 16 years with

Freedom Communications, including four years as publisher of the Appeal-Democrat in Marysville, Calif. J. Tom Shaw joined Shaw Media in 2006. He has held a variety of posts, including publisher of Shaw’s Kane County, Lake County and Suburban Life publications. In the past few years, he has overseen the launch of numerous niche products in print and digital formats. In his new role, J. Tom Shaw will lead efforts to grow audience and sales through digital platforms across Shaw’s Illinois and Iowa opera-

tions. Rung announced that a search for J. Tom Shaw’s replacement as publisher of Suburban Life Media would begin immediately. Ben Shaw has been with Shaw Media since 2004. He was named IT Director in 2006 and assumed responsibility for digital operations in 2010. Ben Shaw now will lead technology efforts across the company. He also will develop and maintain the infrastructure necessary to support Shaw’s efforts in digital media and will spearhead the launch of a database marketing program.

Dead dog is reminder of pet safety in village By KRISTIN PEDICINI kpedicini@shawmedia.com WESTMONT – After the sudden death of their youngest pup, two Westmont men want to remind fellow residents about the importance of being careful when walking family dogs. Angelo, a 3-year-old Yorkie-Maltese mix, died Monday after being hit by a black SUV a Cass and Traube ave-

nues, his owner Bob Mueller said. “We were just waiting at the stop light to cross,” Mueller said. “Angelo was jumping around... the light changed and he ran out in the street. ... It was just bad circumstances.” The car’s driver did not stop to check on the dog, instead driving away, Mueller said. The two did not contact

the police after the incident. “There wasn’t much that could be done,” Mueller said. “If anything people need to be really careful with their dogs.” The two have lost part of their family, Mueller said. “It’s very painful,” he said. Sgt. Steve Thompson, with the Westmont Police Department, said he can’t remember the last time a dog was hit by a car in Westmont.

“It’s not a regular occurrence at all,” Thompson said. “Especially with people who walk their dogs.” For residents who do walk their dogs at night, Thompson said the department wants to remind people to stay on the sidewalks. “Keep the leash so that you can keep yourself and dog safe,” Thompson said. “And be sure you can control your dog.”

Restaurant reviews

Old Town Pour House comes to Oak Brook OAK BROOK – Old Town Pour House proclaims beer a staple of life. The restaurant-bar backs that up once you step inside the new Oak Brook eatery. Nestled in an expansive storefront underneath Neiman Marcus inside the upscale Oakbrook Center, Old Town Pour House gives shoppers a cozy wind-down over a cold brew and American cuisine. The restaurant opened on the east side of the shopping mall in late November, making it Old Town Pour House’s second location, as the owners ventured west from their popular Chicago location. The exterior screams modern with its bold signage and contemporary outdoor fireplaces. Inside, it’s the same story, with a mix of tables and booths surrounding a bar with a good number of flat-screens. A companion and I dined at Pour House on a recent holiday shopping night. Picking up the menu, we discovered that beer selections practically outnumber food options three to one – a good thing in my book. From ciders to lagers to wheats, there are plenty of unique craft selections to pair with your meals. The full bar boasts about 90 taps. My date and I kicked off the experience with a pair of tasty appetizers – the Firecracker Rolls under the “Bar Bites” portion of the menu, and the Truffle Mac N Cheese under “Shareables.” Our waitperson assured us both sections of the menu are essentially shared plates. The Firecracker Rolls are a spicy mix of Cajun chicken, a vegetable medley and avocado cream. It’s definitely a spicy dish – have a beverage handy – but the avocado cream was a nice cool-down. The Truffle Mac N Cheese was the favorite dish of the night at our table. With Parmesan breadcrumbs and black truffle, accented by smoked bacon tidbits, it was anything

Old Town Pour House has been making a splash on the dining scene since opening in late November in Oakbrook Center under Neiman Marcus. but bland. I suggest it as a must-have. For our entrees, my date, readying for some post-meal shopping, opted light for the Pour House Chopped Salad. The salad is a fresh-made combo of marinated grilled chicken, romaine lettuce and a host of other ingredients. The sweet-and-sour tarragon dressing was a great touch; you may want to ask for extra. I opted for the Pour House Burger. The Angus beef patty was topped with aged white cheddar and a pair of beer-battered onion rings on a Portuguese bun. It was a solid burger complemented nicely with olive-oil-parsley fries. Other menu options extend to five additional salad selections, including the Seared Tuna Nicoise Salad and the BBQ Smoked Chicken Salad, a trio of soups and five dinner entrees ranging from Miller Farms Chicken to Cedar River Strip.

TOP 5 HIGHLIGHTS

Memorable fall moments for Downer Grove North The girls basketball team has been the early story from the start of the winter sports season at Downers Grove North, but it’s not too late to reflect on a solid fall sports season for the Trojans. From a deep playoff run in football to a pair of runner-up state showings from boys cross country and girls swimming, the fall sports season at DGN had plenty of memorable moments, listed in no particular order.

1. Calvino steps up as Trojans surge to quarters Initially, Sebastian Calvino was considered merely a place-holder when starting quarterback David Edwards suffered a leg injury in Week 6 of the football season. Edwards’ injury was more debilitating than first expected and Calvino – the Trojans’ senior starting tight end at the start of the season – shined under center. Aided by a supporting offensive cast that included Vontae Diggs, Kyle Leto and Richard Olekanma, Calvino stepped in and scored 10 touchdowns in seven games as the starter, guiding the team to the Class 7A quarterfinals. On the other side of the ball, the Downers D recorded three shutouts and held opponents to single digits on six different occasions. In the quarterfinal clash against eventual state champion Mt. Carmel, North’s defense limited the Caravan to just seven points, their lowest total of the season.

2. Sims’ state titles lead Lady Trojans to second Gabby Sims’ high school career ended in dramatic fashion at the state finals in November when she captured first place in four events and vaulted the Trojans to second overall. Sims won the 100-yard backstroke, 100 freestyle and helped North take

Calvino scored 10 touchdowns this season. first in the 200 medley relay and 400 freestyle relay, as she and the team set several school records in the process. The Trojans also won the West Suburban Silver conference meet and decimated the competition at the sectional, winning every event en route to the sectional championship.

3. Smith, Clevenger have runs to remember This season was a stark turnaround for the boys cross country team, which did not even qualify for the state finals in 2012-13. A year later, led by senior Zack Smith and junior Ryan Clevenger, the Trojans flourished in the West Suburban Silver conference, placed second at both regionals and

sectionals, and emerged as contenders for the 3A title. At state, Smith’s blazing time of 14:23 was the third-best individual time while Clevenger finished seventh, powering the Trojans to second overall and making them the only team at state with two top 10 runners.

4. Michigan-bound Mahlke, North capture regional A four-year varsity starter who is set to sport Michigan’s maize and blue next year, Katherine Mahlke’s 294 kills and 36 aces helped the Trojan volleyball team defeat the likes of Naperville Central, Metea Valley and Wheaton Academy on their way to a No. 2 seed in the 4A playoffs. Touting an experienced

squad and standout newcomers like Mary Helen Beacom and Lexi May, North downed both Argo and Riverside Brookfield in straight sets to capture its second regional title in three years.

5. Girls cross makes team trip to state finals Grace Maletich became a household name this season for the Downers Grove North girls cross country team. The sophomore made immense strides during her second year on varsity, placing fifth individually in a competitive sectionals race and helping the team secure a birth at state finals. At Peoria, Maletich finished 36th with a time of 17:51 as the team finished 21st overall.

The winter sports season is in full swing for student-athletes at Downers Grove South, but it’s not too late to reflect on a solid fall sports season for the Mustangs. From the football team once again ascending to the top of the conference to a dominant showing in the West Suburban Gold by the girls cross country team, the fall sports teams at DGS had plenty of memorable moments, listed in no particular order.

1. Mustangs go undefeated for WSG title

2. South girls cross country continues dominant run Mustang runners obliterated the competition at the West Suburban Gold meet, placing all five scoring runners in the top five and taking seven of the top nine spots en route to another conference championship. The speedy duo of senior Haley Albers and junior Amanda Thate led the way at regionals and sectionals, cracking the top 10 in both races and helping the Mustangs qualify for the state meet at Peoria. Four South runners – Thate, Albers, Meaghan Bosman and Abby Kargol – finished in the top 100 at state and the Mustangs returned home with a ninth place team finish.

Boys cross country qualifies for sectionals After placing second at the West Suburban Gold conference meet, the South’s boys cross country team finished fifth at a stacked Lyons Township regional race in late October, a race that featured three teams that placed in the top four at state. Senior Jacob Amiri capped an impressive high school career with an individual title at the conference meet, then earned 10th place at regionals – one of four Downers South boys placed in the top 30.

4. Doubles team qualifies for state tennis Downers Grove South hosted this fall’s girls sectional tournament, and the home crowd was treated to the emergence of the doubles team comprised of junior Tiffany Bui

and sophomore Janine Urgello. The tennis tandem placed fourth at the sectional tourney and earned a bid to the state tournament, where they won a match in the consolation draw.

5. Boys soccer reaches regional finals It was an up and down season for the boys soccer team. The Mustangs posted a 3-3-1 record at home but excelled on the road, going 6-3-1 with victories over Oswego East, Lincoln-Way East and Glenbard East. Additionally, the Mustangs posted the best record at the Hinsdale Invite in September, coming in second as a result of a tie-breaker. The Mustangs’ showing in the regular season earned them a first round playoff bye, and the boys then shut out rival Downers Grove North to advance to the regional finals.

The football season was a return to glory for Downers Grove South, which captured its first conference championship since 2010. Boasting a potent offense led by seniors running backs Alec Arvanitakis and Le’Devin Smith, the Mustangs ran the table in the West Suburban Gold conference, averaging 33 points in their six conference victories. Arvanitakis paced the team with 13 total touchdowns, including three in the final week of the season to help the Mustangs clinch the Gold crown and earn an automatic playoff birth.

MORE BEARS COVERAGE AT HUBARKUSH.COM

Will it be Rodgers or Flynn behind center? Hub Arkush

This week, we have two matchups to preview: The Bears versus the Packers with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, and the Bears versus the Pack with Matt Flynn behind the wheel. My best guess is it will be Flynn irrespective of what’s at stake. Reports from late last week are that Rodgers never was close to being medically cleared, so it’s hard to imagine he will make that much progress for the Bears game. The only thing that’s certain is we won’t know until late in the week, if before Sunday at all. With Rodgers, you’re talking about the best quarterback in the game, and one of the best ever. The Packers are capable of beating you with the pass or the run, and Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Jarrett Boykin and, perhaps,

even Aaron Quarless all become weapons you have to scheme for. If it’s Flynn at quarterback, the Bears will focus their attention on stopping Eddie Lacy, James Starks and Nelson, and then trust individual defenders to make plays against the rest while the defense tries to force Flynn to make a play to beat them. Don’t think for a minute that Flynn can’t beat you. He’s very comfortable in Mike McCarthy’s offense and just fine reading defenses, going through his progressions and knowing when to quit on a play to fight another day. But he has nowhere near the cannon Rodgers does nor can he command that kind of accuracy. Keep Flynn in third-and-long, and he’s unlikely to beat you. The Packers are top five or top 10 in almost every offensive category, regardless of the quarterback, except avoiding interceptions and allowing quarterback sacks. There, it makes a difference who’s under center. Rodgers has thrown four intercep-

herma Tru Doors

tions and has been sacked 18 times in 251 attempts. Flynn, Scott Tolzein and Seneca Wallace have thrown 10 interceptions and have been sacked 24 times in 280 attempts. Flynn has seven of those picks and 17 sacks in 166 attempts. Regardless of which quarterback it is, the story of this game for the Bears’ defense figures to be their 32nd-ranked run defense versus Lacy and Starks. With Flynn at quarterback, the Bears will pack seven, eight or even nine in the box on most plays. Lacy is dynamic at getting to the second level, but not a huge threat to outrun anyone in the secondary or go all the way. Defensively, the Packers have been a huge disappointment this year and are more likely to be the reason whether the Bears win the NFC North than Rodgers’ injury. After their best outing of the year versus Atlanta in Lambeau three weeks ago, Dallas and Pittsburgh have scorched them the past two weeks. They had no answers

for the Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell last week, and Matt Forte should have a big day. After a fast start to the season, B.J. Raji and Ryan Pickett have been ineffective up front, and the loss of Johnny Jolly for the season with a neck injury has been huge as he was playing the best football of his career. Clay Matthews and Nick Perry are back from injury at the outside linebacker spots, but neither is rushing the quarterback the way they are capable, and A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones inside are not as stout as they need to be against the run. Tramon Williams and Sam Shields have been inconsistent, at best, on the corners, making the occasional big play but struggling in coverage often. That matchup with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery is potentially another big edge for the Bears. Morgan Burnett and M.D. Jennings are serviceable safeties, but Burnett has failed to make the leap to perennial Pro-Bowler the Packers envisioned.

Fantasy Dream Team (Stats through Sunday) Quarterback: Peyton Manning; 399 fantasy points, 51 touchdown passes, 5,211 passing yards, one rushing touchdown. Running back: Jamaal Charles; 298 fantasy points, 1,289 rushing yards, 12 rushing touchdowns, 693 receiving yards, seven touchdown receptions. Running back: LeSean McCoy; 245 fantasy points, 1,476 rushing yards, nine rushing touchdowns, 536 receiving yards, one touchdown reception.

Wide receiver: Josh Gordon; 218 fantasy points, 80 receptions, 1,564 receiving yards, nine touchdown receptions. Wide receiver: Calvin Johnson; 217 fantasy points, 84 receptions, 1,492 receiving yards, 12 touchdown receptions. Tight end: Jimmy Graham; 200 fantasy points, 81 receptions, 1,144 receiving yards, 15 touchdown receptions. Flex player: Matt Forte; 222 fantasy points, 1,229 rushing yards, seven rushing touch-

downs, 547 receiving yards, two touchdown receptions. Kicker: Stephen Gostkowski; 34 of 37 fields goals (long of 54 yards) 42 extra points. Defense: Kansas City; 147 fantasy points, 278 points allowed, 11 defense/special team touchdowns. Of course, the Dream Team is simply that – a dream. One franchise could not have drafted Charles, McCoy, Johnson and Forte, regardless of league size. However, an extremely shrewd owner might have been able to swing Manning, Charles, Gordon, Gostkowski and Kansas City in a draft. Any fantasy team with those five players on its roster is probably sporting some hardware right now.

Denver. 2. Jamaal Charles, RB, Kansas City. 3. LeSean McCoy, RB, Philadelphia. 4. Matt Forte, RB, Chicago. 5. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seattle (210 fantasy points). 6. Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland. 7. Calvin Johnson, WR, Detroit. 8. Demaryius Thomas, WR, Denver (199 fantasy points). 9. Adrian Peterson*, RB, Minnesota (200 fantasy points). 10. Knowshon Moreno, RB, Denver (208 fantasy points). 11.

In a perfect world, you have been crowned as your league’s fantasy football champion. More likely, however, it’s wait until next year. In either event, I hope you had fun playing fantasy football this year. I also hope that this column, perhaps, provided you some not-terrible advice, at least once in a while. If nothing else, there were quite a few fantasy surprises in 2013. Ray Rice was a consensus first-rounder, as was CJ Spiller. No one expected Peyton Manning to be a bum, but I don’t recall much talk about him shattering the single-season touchdown passes record, either. It was a wild season.

This week, we recognize the best 2013 fantasy players with a Fantasy Dream Team and an All-First-Round Team (the top 12 fantasy players, regardless of position).

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

FOOD |

Don’t peel it When you remove the peel or skin from fruits and vegetables, you lose a lot of nutrition — it’s a concentrated source of fiber, vitamins, minerals and potentially beneficial phytochemicals. Here are some facts you might not know about peels, from the University of California, Berkeley Wellness Letter: 1. Vegetable peels or skins are particularly good sources of insoluble fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Some peels, notably apple, are rich in pectin, a soluble fiber that helps lower blood cholesterol and control blood sugar. 2. Apple peels may help prevent cancer. Lab research has found that whole apples have a much greater effect on cancer cells than peeled ones, probably because of the antioxidants in the skin. 3. Potato skins have far more fiber, iron, potassium and B vitamins than the flesh. Potato skins are also rich in antioxidants. 4. You don’t need to wash fruits and vegetables in soap — plain water is fine. It will remove nearly all dirt, as well as bacteria and some pesticide residues, if any are present, on the surface. Scrub firmer produce like potatoes with a vegetable brush. The wax on fruits and veggies is harmless.

— Charlyn Fargo, Creators Syndicate EASY RECIPE

Onion Crumb Brussels Sprouts Casserole Serves 12. • 1/2 cup Country Crock Spread, divided • 2 cups chopped onions • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs • 8 cups cooked Brussels sprouts (or thawed frozen), halved • 1 cup fat-free half and half Preheat oven to 375 F. Melt 4 tablespoons Country Crock Spread over medium-high heat in large nonstick skillet and cook onion, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Add crumbs; cook, stirring until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes; remove to bowl. Melt remaining spread in same skillet. Add Brussels sprouts; toss. Stir in half and half and 1/2 the crumb mixture. Pour into shallow 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly around edges.

Think about featuring your sweet potatoes in muffins rather than in a casserole.

Festive renewal Repurpose holiday ingredients for new treat traditions By Lisa Messinger Creators Syndicate

Holidays are often stuffed with our favorite foods of all time. However, when you rely on old standbys just because they are familiar, it lessens the potential pizzazz. The ideas that follow — they each take just seconds to read and are almost that quick to prepare — prove that virtually any winter holiday staple (like potatoes, stuffing or pumpkin) can be twisted and turned into a new holiday masterpiece on demand. Better yet, rather than starting from scratch, they can improve the meal for just pennies per serving. Food preparation — even for holiday guests — can be easy, nutritious, inexpensive, fun and fast, as the following split-second sensations prove. The dishes are delicious evidence that everyone — including you and your kid helpers — has time for tasty home cooking and more importantly, the family time in the kitchen that goes along with it! Another benefit: You effortlessly become a better cook, even when preparing holiday specialties, since there are no right or wrong amounts. These are virtually-can’t-go-wrong combinations, so whatever you choose to use can’t help but

draw “wows” at the table.

Stuffing Stuffed muffins: Stuffing doesn’t always need to be stuffed into something. It can make quite a statement on its own. Fill either regular-sized or minimuffin trays with cooked stuffing and bake or form it into loaves. Or stuff the stuffing, by placing a surprise, like a prune or a green olive, in the middle of a stuffing muffin. Main course: Stuffing can function as a surprising course, rather than its usual side dish status. Substitute seasoned, dry stuffing mix for the bread, or along with it, in your favorite bread pudding recipe for a kick.

Ham or turkey New glaze: Give your glaze a fresh outlook, and create an innovative meal theme at the same time. For Hawaiian flair, for instance, glaze with a syrup you’ve created as it reduces while you are stirring on the stovetop from coconut milk, pineapple juice, freshly ground black pepper and cayenne pepper. Turn it into a theme by adding chopped macadamia nuts and fresh pineapple chunks to your side dishes and a drizzle of bottled guava, papaya or mango nectar to your pumpkin or apple dessert pie before baking. Then, top it with sprinkles of sweet-

ened coconut flakes just before serving. Gravy upgrade: As good as they are, gravies and sauces are often bland. Why not perk them up a bit as they heat. Consider adding just a dash of strategic flavor, like cayenne and chopped jalapenos (experts recommend wearing latex gloves and not touching your eyes during or after handling peppers); finely diced garlic and pumpkin pie spice; or peach jam or allfruit, no-sugar spread (also available in the jam aisles of most supermarkets) and curry powder.

Sweet potatoes Baked buffet: Instead of a casserole, consider baking sweet potatoes to serve to guests individually, along with a buffet of toppings, such as honey, pure maple syrup, mini marshmallows, composed butters (like those to which you’ve added freshly chopped herbs or spices) or a mixture of diced dried fruit like cranberries, golden raisins, apricots and figs. Standout substitute: Mix in or substitute sweet potatoes for pumpkin in a dessert pie or muffins. Sweeten a sweet potato puree (made from the flesh of peeled sweet potatoes) with honey or brown sugar, warm it and use as a dessert topping for vanilla ice cream that you then top with

browned, melting mini marshmallows and toasted walnuts.

Pumpkin or apple Cozy cocktail: Consider a toast with mini pumpkin or apple smoothies (or a combination of both) during appetizer time or to start off the meal. In a blender, to vanilla soymilk, add a dash of canned pumpkin pie filling or apple pie filling, banana, pumpkin seeds, candied pecans and ice. Blend until smooth. Side surprise: Add minced, unpeeled pumpkin or apple to your stuffing or green bean casserole before cooking, as well as a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon and crushed graham cracker crumbs. The same additions can be made to a mixed green or spinach salad if you cube and roast the pumpkin first. (Apples, of course, can be used raw.) You can serve it warm on top of the salad for a wilted effect, or let it cool first. Drizzle with roasted pumpkin seeds and poppy seed-based salad dressing, or raspberry vinaigrette.
