Winter Olympics come to Army Trail School

The DuPage County Coroner’s Office has completed all suspected opioid related deaths from 2017. The numbers are startling and show that there continues to be a serious problem of addiction and death related to legal and illegal opioids. The trend towards the mixture of the opioid fentanyl into the heroin and the emergence of fentanyl analogues in the Chicagoland area continues as a serious problem. These fentanyl analogues are very strong and we have identified another death due to carfentanyl, which is 10,000 stronger than morphine. These numbers do not reflect the lives who have been saved by police, fire and medical personnel using the opioid antidote naloxone. If this life saving drug had not been widely used, the number of deaths would be much higher. 2015 (# of deaths) 36 = Heroin alone 7 = Heroin/Fentanyl mixture 8 = Fentanyl alone Total deaths = 51 2016 36 = Heroin alone 26 = Heroin/Fentanyl mixture 16 = Fentanyl alone 17 = Prescription medications Total deaths (illegal Drugs) = 78 Total deaths (all opioids) = 95 2017 23 = Heroin alone 32 = Heroin/Fentanyl mixture 17 = Fentanyl alone 23 = Prescription medications Total deaths (illegal drugs) = 72 Total deaths (all opioids) = 95 These numbers reveal that our work is not done in the quest to eradicate this epidemic. We must continue to bring education to our citizens about this problem to prevent the use of opioids, treat those who are addicted and eradicate the supply of illegal drugs.

The students at Army Trail School, including this group representing Team Finland, have been taking part in a special unit about the Winter Olympics recently, which continues over the next few weeks. Last week, this group learned about skeleton races, which are similar to the luge, except that you go head-first. Full story and more photos inside this issue. SUBMITTED PHOTO Addison Independent

Do you have loose dentures? Implants can help.

HAPPY Valentine’s Day!

Anyone who has ever suffered from loose dentures can tell you about the embarrassment of constantly hiding their smile and about the social awkwardness that accompanies difficulty in speaking and chewing. Dental implants could be the answer. A dental implant is an artificial root to which an artificial tooth is attached. An implant can replace one or more teeth or permanently support a bridge or denture. Here are some of the proven benefits of dental implants: ◗ Improved Appearance

◗ Dental implants look and feel just like your own teeth, so no one will

know unless you tell them.

◗ Improved Self-Confidence

◗ An attractive, natural-looking appearance plus the ability to speak and

eat normally and comfortably will have you smiling again!

◗ Improved Oral Health

◗ Dental implants actually preserve bone tissue, and the procedure is

considered non-invasive because it does not affect the surrounding teeth. ◗ Reliability

Dental implants have had a proven track record for more than 35 years, and are an excellent option for tooth replacement. If you are in good general and oral health you may be an excellent candidate for dental implants- no matter what your age! Call us today to see if implants can help you.

When the upper jaw is too narrow with respect to the lower jaw, it can lead to tooth crowding and crossbite. To address by Jeffrey T. Boland these problems, the orthodontist may use Licensed Orthodontic Specialist a “palatal expander” (otherwise known as a “spreader”) to widen the upper jaw so that the bottom and upper teeth will fit together properly. Resting against the roof of the mouth, the expander is affixed to the molars on either side of the dental arch. In the middle of the device is an expansion joint that is periodically widened to provide outward pressure that forces open the lengthwise central joint (or “suture”) between the bones of the palate. As new bone grows to fill the joint, the jaw remains permanently widened. Although this may sound scary, it’s really quite easy to do and to tolerate. That’s because the upper jaw develops as two separate halves that don’t completely fuse together until sometime after puberty. To schedule a free orthodontic consultation, please call our office. Our office uses braces and other orthodontic appliances to improve smiles and dental health, making children and adults look and feel better.

the past several years. In its Fiscal Year 2018 budget, the state reduced traditional local revenue sources for cities and towns throughout Illinois. In DuPage County alone, those cuts amounted to a loss of $15.8 million. That includes: a $11.4 million cut in the Local Government Distributive Fund (LGDF), or each local government’s share of the state income tax; a $1.4 million cut in personal property replacement tax (PPRT), or revenues to local governments by corporations; and a $2.9 million cut from a new 2 percent sales tax collection fee on local municipalities. “This year marks a critical year for local governments, not only in DuPage, but across Illinois,” Veenstra said. “The uncertainty and the stress on the state’s budget has resulted in local governments having significantly less revenue to provide essential services to local residents and keep a lid on property taxes.” That revenue is generated locally and collected by the state before it gets distributed back to cities and villages to fund basic services such as police and fire and village staff, road repairs and maintenance, garbage collecting and snowplowing. DMMC is also advocating for reforms aimed at local authority so municipalities can govern themselves and make decisions when it comes to franchising, zoning, per-

Army Trail studies Winter Olympics Physical education lessons include skeleton, luge, snowboard

Army Trail School preschool through 5th grade students are going all out for the Winter Olympics as they participate in a special Physical Education unit prepared by teacher Gale Stafford. Early last week, the students began the three-week unit, learning about the Olympics, competition, and teamwork. When they came to class, students watched a short video that showed an Olympic event. They then participated

in races using PE equipment modified to imitate the Olympic event of the day. The youth are assigned to represent a country and they earn points for that country. A gold medal is worth 3 points, a silver medal, 2, and a bronze medal, 1. At the end of each day, points are added up and displayed on a score sheet for all to see. Participants could also earn extra credit for their country/team by writing a paper on either the country, a Winter

Olympics event, or a Winter Olympics athlete. The extra credit papers are worth 5 points each and will be displayed in the gym. The first week competitions began with participation in indoor PE versions of luge, the skeleton and the snowboard. Week #2 will feature cross country skiing, speed skating, the biathlon, hockey, and curling. The final week will have bobsled racing competitions.

She said she values the time she has had to get to know the different students at Addison Trail and the friendships she has formed during the hours she has spent in all of the afterschool activities in which she participates.

She will attend events and activities hosted by various sports and clubs she is not involved in just so we can get a wider range of kids in the book. She is one of the most dedicated and passionate yearbook kids I’ve ever had. Addante goes above and beyond her responsibilities and wants our entire class to take pride in their work. I am very proud of her and appreciate everything she has done for our yearbook staff.” She also has been a member of theatre since her freshman year and has worked in various roles. “Addante has always been one of the most polite, dependable and hardworking students,” said Anna Jakubka, English teacher and Theatre Director. “I know her time is divided in many activities, but she is an exemplary thespian and theatre student. Any time she serves on a crew, she does her work with excellence, and she is always someone I can depend on.” Not only has Addante made her mark in numerous school activities, but she also is an excellent student at the top of her class.

Conroy addresses opioid overdoses in DuPage County

Vows to bring more services to County, where 95 died in 2017

State Rep. Deb Conroy (D-Villa Park) is drawing attention to a report published by the DuPage County Coroner’s Office showing that 95 DuPage County residents fatally overdosed as a result of opioid use in 2017, the same number as in 2016. “We must end the belief that our communities are immune to the effects of the opioid crisis,” said Conroy. “Regardless of race, gender or socioeconomic status, anyone can succumb to addiction. The shocking numbers from the Coroner’s Office show us that there is a lot of work to be done.” The report from the Coroner’s office showed that the number of deaths in 2017 was identical to the number of deaths in 2016. However, the number of deaths climbed from 51 in 2015 to 95 in 2016. The Cor-

oner also stated that the report does not share the number of residents who have been saved by the use of naloxone, an opioid antidote known as Narcan®. As chairwoman of the House Mental Health Committee, Conroy has been working to bring awareness around the issue of addiction and mental health amid the opioid crisis. “We will continue to lose people to the opioid crisis if we do not treat addiction as the medical health condition that it is,” she said. “Our communities must work together to end the stigma and barriers to access that surround mental health treatment. No person should forgo the help they need because they fear how they will be looked at or be denied treatment by an insurance company.”

Medicaid work requirements for able-bodied, childless adults make sense Helping people when they’re down is admirable. Helping people who are down learn how to help themselves is both admirable and far more sustainable, financially, in the long term. Dan McCaleb That’s why the Trump administration’s Columnist, Illinois News recentl decision to Network allow U.S. states to develop workrequirement programs for healthy, childless Medicaid recipients is a smart one. Under the new guidelines, individuals with disabilities and small children, women who are pregnant, and the elderly would be exempt from the work requirements. Those most in need, then, are not affected. Kentucky was the first U.S. state to become eligible to impose the mandatory work requirement. Illinois should get in line to become one of the next. Medicaid is a taxpayer-funded health insurance program that was created in the 1960s to provide coverage for the most at-risk Americans, including those in extreme poverty and people with disabilities who are unable to work. But when Obamacare was enacted in 2010, it expanded Medicaid eligibility to all lower-income Americans in states that opted in. That allowed healthy, childless individuals for whom Medicaid was not initially intended to sign up for the welfare program. In 2013, Illinois opted in to full Medicaid expansion. Since then, the state’s Medicaid rolls have exploded. More than one in every four Illinoisans now are covered by taxpayer-funded Medicaid. And, as can be expected, the costs have soared as well. During fiscal year 2016, combined federal and state spending for Medicaid in Illinois exceeded $19 billion, an increase of 44 percent since 2012. Illinois’ share is more than $5 billion, and that’s only going to increase as Congress shifts more of the expansion costs to state governments. A U.S. Senate committee is investigating the rising costs of Medicaid in Illinois and seven other U.S. states that opted into to the expansion. In a letter to Gov. Bruce Rauner last fall, the committee’s chairman, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, said Illinois’ Medicaid expansion costs are exceeding initial estimates by 90 percent, nearly double.

“Costs per enrollee are also surging in Illinois, going from $1,867 in 2014 to $5,854 in 2015—a 214 percent single-year increase,” Johnson wrote. “I am seeking to better understand these rising costs and higher-thanexpected enrollment, especially in states where costs or enrollment are increasing especially quickly.” Illinois is in no condition to continue absorbing these out-ofcontrol costs. A work requirement would incentivize many healthy Illinoisans who enrolled in Medicaid through Obamacare to look for work. Some percentage of them would find it and move to privately funded insurance, saving taxpayer money. Rauner said that he supports work rules for able-bodied Medicaid recipients. But he also said there aren’t enough good jobs in Illinois to support it. “We don’t have jobs available for everyone, and that’s got to be our priority— because you can force people to work but if there’s not a work opportunity, that’s not going to succeed,” Rauner said in touting reforms to tax and regulatory policies that have stifled Illinois’ jobs creators. Rauner is correct about Illinois’ lagging jobs situation, but that shouldn’t prevent the state from adopting Medicaid work requirements. Under Kentucky’s model, healthy adults who want to receive health care benefits would need to complete 80 hours of what that state calls “community engagement” each month to remain eligible. Community engagement can mean actually working in a job, but it also includes continuing education, community service and job training. And, to be clear, the requirement in Kentucky is 80 hours a month—not 40 hours a week, as most full-time jobs require. Illinois can form its own requirements to best fit the state. Other federal welfare programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (otherwise known as food stamps), allow for work requirements, although the federal government makes it too easy for states to apply for and receive waivers. Illinois successfully sought a waiver for its SNAP program in 2018. Work requirements offer good motivation for childless, able-bodied individuals to learn new skills, enhance their future earning power and become productive members of their communities. This is a no-brainer. Rauner should start working on Illinois’ requirements immediately.

Slices of life

Winning the lottery would complicate life

My husband and I aren’t big gamblers. I suppose it stems from the fact that we’ve never really had a large pile of cash we were itching to lose. Plus neither one of us was born the lucky gene. So if you ever see us at a casino, rest assured, we’re there for the buffet. Still, every so often we buy a lottery ticket – just one for the both of us. We wouldn’t want to be too unrestrained. We usually purchase our lottery ticket when the jackpot is sky high and the winning prize is somewhere in the mega millions. What typically happens the morning after we buy the lottery ticket is I go online to check our numbers. And then I tell my husband the bad news. We didn’t win. That isn’t always the case. We did win $4 once. You should have seen our happy dance that day. Not winning the lottery doesn’t stop us from dreaming about what we’d do if we did win. Except when it comes to my husband and me, our dreams – and our definition of winning – vary significantly. He dreams of winning the lottery. Literally winning the lottery. He even does the numbers in his head: how ever many hundreds of millions in the jackpot minus the fee for taking the winnings in a lump sum minus the nearly 40 percent taxes.

By

JILL PERTLER Contributor

After all that minusing what he comes up with is still a really big mega millions number. He likes really big mega millions numbers and would welcome them into his life. I would not. A few times a year my husband and I buy a lottery ticket. I always cross my fingers it’s a lucky one. I hope we match lots of numbers. I want us to be winners. But I don’t want to win the lottery. Not the whole thing. That would be too much. A mega million dollars would turn my life upside down. It would change everything and change is hard. Even when it makes you mega millions rich. Having a mega million dollars would complicate life in ways I don’t want complicated. I’d have to wonder if people liked me or my millions. I’d have to hire someone to manage my money and then I’d have to worry about them being dishonest. Lots of people would see me as a blank check.

I’d be deluged by investment opportunities and potential business deals. I might even find out I had a bunch of new relatives. Everyone would want a piece of me, or better put, my money. In a world like that it’s hard to trust anyone. It’s difficult to relax. So I don’t want to win the lottery. I just want to win a nice little jackpot that might be enough to pay off my kids’ student loans or maybe even the mortgage. I don’t want an amount that would change my life; I just want to make it a little easier. So when my husband and I buy our lottery ticket, we have differing desires for the outcome. He longs for mega millions; I for mega thousands. And that’s okay. We learned years ago that we can look up at the same sky and one of us will see blue while the other sees a jet plane flying overhead. Besides, it’s highly unlikely either of us will ever see fruition to our personal vision of winning the lottery. We aren’t lucky like that. Well, except for that one time when we won the $4.

The Don of A New Day in Sports “There is No Sure Bet Except for...” I lost a bet to my friend, Mr. Rod at Auto Advantage on Lake Street. I bet that the Chicago Bears would win six games. Unfortunately they only managed five victories. I’ll have to wait until next year again to redeem myself. Now Rod is a White Sox fan and Dominick, owner of Auto Advantage, is a Cubs fan. Should I make a bet that the Bears will win a Championship before either the Cubs or the White Sox? The only “Sure Bet” is that you will enjoy any of the following: A Basketball Game at Addison Trail HS or an Addison Rec Club Basketball Game or try an A.G.S.P. Volleyball Game! “You can Bet that you will have a Great Time!” Answer the trivia question below to win a Chicago Cubs t-shirt: DON • Who is the Athletic Director at Addison Trail High School?

Addison Trail girls basketball team defeats Willowbrook and Leyden Many Blazers getting involved offensively

By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

Addison Trail girls basketball coach Rob Schader witnessed a pair of strong team efforts in games against Willowbrook and Leyden. The result was a pair of wins for the Blazers against their West Suburban Conference Gold Division foes. Addison Trail upended District 88 neighbor Willowbrook 42-37 and

then avenged an earlier loss to Leyden with a 40-32 win over the Eagles. “What stood out about the Willowbrook game is everybody scored for us,” said Schader. “We also did a nice job defensively holding them to 37 points.” Schader said Nicci Scorza, Serena Gilliam and Berenice Berumen had strong games against Willowbrook. In the Leyden win, Schader again saw contributions across the board. “Leyden we not only did a great job defensively, but again everybody was involved with scoring. Overall, we did a nice job against them,” he

said. The Blazers also lost to Downers Grove South in recent WSC Gold action. “We played Downers South very tough,” said Schader. “We got it down to five points early in the third, but they are a good team. They have three good guards and one of them had five 3s, all in the first half. They also have two very good post players.” The 2-1 stretch put Addison Trail at 9-16 overall. The Blazers finished 2-10 in WSC Gold play. Schader said his team did an about-face at the free-throw line in the second meeting against Leyden.

“We hit 9 of 13 free throws the second time after shooting 12 of 28 the first time,” he said. “We also took care of the basketball and rebounded very well.” Schader added that rebounding has been a strength throughout the season. “Most games we rebound the ball well and distribute the ball very well,” he said. Scorza continues to play well, averaging around 12 points and 10 rebounds per game. “Serena Gilliam also is playing better,” the coach said. “Angelina Carreras and Brenda Berumen handled the ball very well against Downers South. We had

trouble with their pressure the first time we played them. I think Berenice also is playing very well. Our juniors are starting to get more confident and are playing a lot better.” Scahder said the Blazers likely would face Proviso West in the WSC position crossover game earlier this week before starting regional play at home the following week against West Chicago. “That will be another rematch for us,” said Schader. “We lost to them by 12 the first time, but we were missing several players. It’s going to be a different game with everybody there.”
