Health department urges caution as additional cases of West Nile virus reported The DuPage County Health Department announced on Wednesday, Sept. 5, that there are now six human cases of West Nile virus (WNV) that have been reported in the county in 2018. This is an in-

crease of four human cases since earlier this month, and it is anticipated that the numbers will continue to increase over the coming weeks. The Health Department’s Person-

al Protection Index (PPI) remains at Level 3 (high risk) because of the number of mosquito batches testing positive for WNV. Level 3 indicates high numbers of infected mosquitoes in most ar-

eas, and multiple human cases of WNV disease in DuPage County. View the PPI at dupagehealth.org. Anyone who experiences symptoms that cause concern should contact their health care provider.

The Health department continues to monitor WNV activity by collecting and testing mosquitoes from traps located throughout the county from May through October, the West Nile virus season.

On Saturday, Oct. 27 from 1-3 p.m., the Elmhurst Art Museum is holding a panel discussion in conjunction with The McCormick House and the Bauhaus Dream of Pre-Fabricated Homes. After recent restorations of the McCormick House, one of only three single family homes designed by Mies van der Rohe, scholarly panelists will assemble to shed new light on its importance, linking new research to the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus—a legendary German school where Mies was the final Director. Scholars such as Wolf Tegethoff, Barry Bergdoll, and Robin Schuldenfrei will connect Mies van der Rohe’s projects in Europe to the U.S.; the dream of prefab in the U.S. after several key German figures arrived in America (Mies, Breuer, Gropius, Wachsmann, and others); Mies van der Rohe’s collaboration with urban planner Ludwig Hilberseimer; general discussions about prefab designs; and more. Free with museum admission or current membership. This program is part of the Year of Germany-American Friendship initiated by the German Federal Foreign Office and the GoetheInstitut, and supported by the Federation of German Industries (BDI).

The Best Way to Stop the Sharp Pain of a Pinched Nerve Pinched sensory nerves may produce the following symptoms: • Pain • Sensitivity • Numbness • Tingling or prickling • Burning • Problems with positional awareness

There are three types of nerves in the body: 1. Autonomic nerves. These nerves control the involuntary or partially voluntary activities of your body, including heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, and temperature regulation. 2. Motor nerves. These nerves control your movements and actions by passing information from your brain and spinal cord to your muscles. 3. Sensory nerves. These nerves relay information from your skin and muscles back to your spinal cord and brain. The information is then processed to let you feel pain and other sensations. Because nerves are essential to all you do, pinched nerves can seriously affect your quality of life.

In some instances, people with pinched nerves will have symptoms that indicate pinching of two, or even three, different types of nerves. For instance, you might experience weakness and burning of your legs at the same time. To further complicate matters we don’t all develop the same way and different unexpected nerves can cause similar problems. This has made it very difficult to diagnose disorders caused by pinched nerves based on which nerve “should” cause what. That is, until now... Recent advances in technology that detects pinched nerves has led to more precise diagnosis for those people suffering with nerve damage disorders. And more precise diagnosis leads to better results... results which have been published in major medical journals. With data showing success rates as high as 88% some back surgeons are recommending their patients try this treatment first before having back surgery (for nerve damage that leads to back pain and sciatica). Your invitation for a comprehensive consultation and examination to pinpoint the cause of your nerve damage. All you have to do to receive a thorough diagnostic examination with the most advanced technology in the world and a comprehensive easy to understand report on your state of health is call 630-941-8733. Mention this article (CODE: IND43PNV1) and the consultation fee is just $43. But hurry, for obvious reasons – this is a time limited offer – with only 100 reader consultations available at this exclusively discounted rate. Don’t suffer a moment longer... Find out what is causing your pinched nerve, book a consultation now by calling

What Are the Symptoms of Pinched Nerves? When a nerve is pinched there can be a wide array of symptoms. Which ones you may have depends on the location and type of nerves that are affected. Pinched nerves typically occur in the nerves just as they exit the spine. Pinched autonomic nerves may produce the following symptoms: • Too much sweating or too little sweating • Lightheadedness • Dry eyes and mouth • Constipation • Bladder dysfunction • Sexual dysfunction Pinched motor nerves may produce the following symptoms: • Weakness • Muscle atrophy • Twitching, also known as fasciculation • Paralysis

Cullerton’s budget transparency measure is now law A new Illinois law sponsored by State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) will mandate transparency and accuracy in the governor’s annual budget proposal. The governor recently signed Cullerton’s House Bill 5814, which will force all future governors’ offices to record late interest payments as a separate line item in agency appropriations. The law will paint a clearer picture of the state’s financial standing and slow the depletion of funding needed to provide vital services to Illinois residents. “All future governors will be forced to present realistic appropriations budgets in the future thanks to this bill,” Cullerton said. “We need to make sure governors, regardless of political party, do not attempt to hide behind phony numbers.” Currently, most late payment interest penalties accrue at a rate of 12 percent per month for bills unpaid after 90 days, while health care bills accumulate interest at a rate of 9 percent after 30 days. The interest penalties are paid

from the same appropriation line, depleting the amount a state agency can spend for its operations. Cullerton’s measure forces the governor’s budget to include separate line item requests to for prompt pay interest payments. The comptroller’s January 2018 Debt Transparency Report confirmed that taxpayers owe approximately $887 million in interest penalties despite paying out over $140 million in penalties in 2017. “As legislators, we can’t negotiate a responsible budget when we don’t know how much money is owed or where it is going,” Cullerton said. “Utilizing responsible accounting practices in state government will allow the citizens of Illinois to know how and where their valuable tax dollars are spent.” This bipartisan measure is an initiative of Comptroller Susana Mendoza and is supported by the Better Government Association. House Bill 5814 passed the House and Senate with unanimous support and goes into effect immediately. [This was received from the office of State Senator Tom Cullerton.]

A new Illinois law will ensure service members’ rights are protected while they are serving our nation. State Sen. Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) sponsored Senate Bill 3547 which modernizes state military service member employment rights. The updates to the law protect modern operational reserve forces. This bipartisan measure was signed into law on Sunday and goes into effect Jan. 1, 2019. “It’s important that we ensure state laws are modernized with the growing needs of our military members,” Cullerton said. “While our service men and women are sacrificing their lives to protect our country they should not have to fear losing their civilian jobs.” Senate Bill 3547, known as the Service-Member Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, takes the following action: • Consolidates all Illinois laws providing Illinois service members employment protections; • Expands protections regarding military rights notifications and performance reviews during leave; • Adds definitions to resolve issues under existing laws, including the calculation of differential compensation; and • Combines enforcement within the Office of Attorney General. Cullerton served in the Army from

While our service men and women are sacrificing their lives to protect our country they should not have to fear losing their civilian jobs.” – State Sen. Tom Cullerton

1990 to 1993 as an infantryman. He continues to use his military experience to champion legislation to help military veterans, personnel and their families. “Our nation’s heroes continue to serve our great nation with honor, respect and continue to make countless sacrifices to protect our freedoms,” Cullerton said. “This new law serves as a small token of appreciation for all they do to keep us safe.” Senate Bill 3547 passed the Senate and House with unanimous support. It is an initiative of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office. “When military service members serve our country, they should not lose their civilian jobs at home,” she said. “This new law strengthens service members’ employment protections.” [This was received from the office of State Senator Tom Cullerton.]

Former president of Elmhurst College died in Lancaster, Pa. Dr. Ivan E. Frick, 90, of Lancaster, PA, and formerly of Elmhurst, died on Saturday, August 25, 2018, at Willow Valley Communities. Born in New Providence, Pa., he was the son of the late Charles G. and Lillie M. Frick. He was married to the late Ruth H. Frick for more than 64 years. A 1945 graduate of Lampeter High School in Pennsylvania, Dr. Frick received his bachelors’ from Findlay College in Ohio in 1949. He held theological degrees from Lancaster Theological Seminary in 1952 and

from the Graduate School of Theology at Oberlin College in 1955. He earned his Ph.D. from Columbia University/Union Theological Seminary in 1959. Dr. Frick lived a life of service to church-related colleges and to his church. Ordained as a minister in 1951, he pastored churches in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, then taught theology, religion, and philosophy at Findlay College (now the University of Findlay). After being appointed assistant to the president in 1963, he served as Find-

lay’s president from 1964–1971. His tenure saw the restoration of the College’s accreditation, an improvement in its financial health, and an expansion of its physical plant through the construction of four buildings. Among numerous awards and degrees from Findlay, he received a Doctor of Humane Letters in 1976. His tenure at Elmhurst College In November 1971, Dr. Frick assumed the presidency of Elmhurst College. He and his wife Ruth, the College’s First Lady, served in their roles

until 1994. Upon their retirement, Elmhurst renamed the College Union building The Frick Center in honor of their leadership. As president, Frick developed new programs for non-traditional students, achieved 22 years of balanced budgets, expanded the endowment from $750,000 to $34 million, and led the construction of two, and renovation of seven, campus buildings. Dr. Frick took leadership positions with numerous professional associations in higher education and was a Paul Harris Fellow of Rotary International. He enjoyed reading (especially in German) and genealogy. Throughout his lifetime, he was an active church member: first, in the Churches of God, General Conference and, later in life, the United Church of Christ. He is survived by his children: son, David Frick, Albany, Calif.; son, Daniel, husband of Tamara Goeglein, Lancaster; daughter, Susan, wife of Ronald Searl, Westmont; sister, Esther Schneider, Quarryville, Pa.; brothers: Paul Frick, Lancaster, and David, Zanesville, Ind.; and five granddaughters:

Rachel and Sarah Foster and Eleanor, Evelyn, and Lillie Frick. Ivan was preceded in death by his beloved wife Ruth and his siblings Lillian Frick Raihl and Charles, Walter, Richard, and Robert Frick. Two memorial services planned There are two memorial services planned for Dr. Frick. The first will be held on Saturday, Sept. 15, at 2 p.m. at Santee Chapel, Lancaster Theological Seminary, 555 West James Street, Lancaster, Pa. A second service will be held on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 11 a.m. at St. Peter’s United Church of Christ, 125 West Church Street. A reception will follow both services. In lieu of flowers, Memorial Gifts may be made to the Frick Endowed Book Fund of Elmhurst College online at elmhurst. edu/give (under “Area of Support” select “Frick Endowed Book Fund.”) You may also make your gift by calling the Office of Development and Alumni Relations at (630) 617-3600.

A dream come true

By Leslie Hamric Excitement twirled inside me on a Friday night in May, 1985. This was my first orchestra concert. Guided to my chair by my stand partner, I sat down and got my cello into position. Having started lessons at the beginning of third grade, I later memorized four pieces from audio recordings made by the conductor weeks before, so I felt prepared. Suddenly, a hush fell over the audience, followed by silence. Before long, we were playing the first notes of “French Folk Song.” Then we played our other three pieces: “Long, Long Ago,” “Chorale,” and “Ready, Steady, Go.” It was pure heaven performing with the group. My cello and I were one. While listening to the performances of the other two orchestras, I was filled with pride and accomplishment. Setting a new trend as the first blind person in the district’s orchestra program meant everything to me. With appropriate training, planning, and teamwork, I knew could do this! Performing in my first concert went so well that, now, I had a big dream -- to perform in a professional orchestra someday. My orchestral studies continued through graduate school. Memberships included the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra, Northern Illinois University Philharmonic, and the New Eastman Symphony. Fast forward to September, 2017 when, after many transitions, I auditioned for the Elmhurst Symphony.

It was nice to audition for a conductor like Stephen Alltop, who seemed willing to accept a new challenge. The best advice from my colleagues in the National Federation of the Blind of Illinois and others was to let my cello do the talking. During the audition, my cello and I told our musical story. Sensing that my audition went well, after some discussion, Stephen said he would like to try it. Thrilled as I was, I also knew my work cut out for me. Stephen acknowledged that having someone like me in the orchestra was new territory. I responded that learning everything through braille music was new territory for me. We would be pioneering together. Our collaboration commenced at my first rehearsal in February, 2018. There was a little apprehensive as to how things would go, but once in that musical moment with the others, all previous apprehension disappeared. I was one of the group and always would be going forward. My first concert with the Elmhurst Symphony was Verdi’s Requiem, the longest piece I had ever memorized. One of the pieces in the second concert was Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis, the craziest work ever memorized. It involved altering my learning method slightly to take on this work since the piece made little sense at first. Both concerts provided rewarding and challenging experiences. I wouldn’t trade them for anything. With rehearsals beginning this

Dancing Drum assemblies held at District 4 Steve Campbell of Dancing Drum provided interactive drumming assemblies at all of Addison School District 4’s elementary buildings last week. With the theme of world music, Campbell played songs and taught different rhythm patterns from countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and South America. All students had the opportunity to participate during the assembly playing drums, wood blocks, and maracas. Students were also encouraged to sing, clap, and chant with the beat. Upper grade students danced and lower grade students paraded as everyone learned and had fun. Each assembly concluded with teachers drumming out a rock and roll beat to represent music from the United States. More information about Dancing Drum is available at dancingdrum.com These 14 school assemblies were made possible by the Young Person’s Music Initiative Grant from the DuPage County Foundation. This is the second year of the multi-year grant, which is funded by the JCS Fund through the Foundation.

Become a Younger Version of Yourself Before

at Dynamic Strength

630-627-1120

Bill lost 63 lbs. Dyanne lost 32 lbs.

Bill and Dyanne, clients for 1.5 years

Dynamic Strength in Oakbrook Terrace was opened in 2003 by Nicki Casale. Nicki is a personal fitness trainer with over 25 years of fitness and nutrition experience. She has served the Elmhurst, Oak Brook and surrounding communities for the past 15 years. Watching my stepfather slowly deteriorate as he got older was the main reason I opened Dynamic Strength. Several years ago, I noticed my stepfather starting to slow down. His daily tasks were becoming more difficult for him and I noticed he started to shuffle a little bit when he walked. I knew if I could get him to exercise he would be able to do more and feel better. Although, having not worked out a day in his life, I knew that it would be almost impossible to get him into a gym. That’s when I knew that Slow Motion Strength Training would be an excellent type of exercise for him and it would provide others who are not accustomed to exercising the opportunity to regain their muscular strength, become fit and healthy again. We have helped many people achieve goals they never thought they would reach. Regardless of your age or fitness level, you can expect to shed body fat, increase muscular strength and endurance, lower

cholesterol levels, improve bone density, balance and coordination. It is such a rewarding experience to see how people progress in their training and become a younger version of themselves and that’s why I love what I do! If you’re interested in learning more, let us take you through a sample work out and you can see for yourself how we can change your life as well!

“I have been training at Dynamic Strength for 6 months and have lost 36 lbs and feel great.” —Mary C. “Was looking to build my strength back up and hopefully improve my golf game, and boy did I ever! —Scott M. “Between work and family, I never found time to exercise until my doctor referred me to Dynamic Strength. I now work out on my lunch hour (in 20 minutes!) and have reduced my bad cholesterol and dropped 17 lbs.” —Diane L.

Addison Trail girls golf The Addison Trail girls golf team graduated all its top golfers from last year’s squad. Newcomers up from last year’s junior-varsity team include Anna Tracz, Mikaela Olvera and Tori Dudka. “We are very inexperienced,” said Addison Trail coach Phil Stewart, “but the team has grown in numbers. We have a lot of new golfers so everything is to-be-determined.” Dudka and Olvera are each on their third year of golf. “Both seem to enjoy the game and want to improve,” said Stewart. Stewart said he is hoping “this team learns to appreciate the game of golf” and also is hoping to “see huge improvements by the end of the season.” Addison Trail lost its first dual match of the year to Wheaton North.

Week 4 Preview Willowbrook (3-0, 1-0) at Addison Trail (0-3)

When: Friday, 7:30 p.m. Where: Addison Trail High School, Addison Last week: Willowbrook 26, Leyden 9; Glenbard West 35, Addison Trail 0 Last year: Willowbrook 45, Addison Trail 0

Outlook: Two teams here on opposite spectrums. Willowbrook is off to another strong start at 3-0, has won 12 of its last 13 games and opened defense of its WSC Gold title last week with a win against Leyden. Addison Trail has been shutout in each of its first three games and needs a win here to get back on track and keep its playoff window open (4 losses would require winning the last five games of the season and then being at the mercy of the playoff points system, while 6 wins is an automatic berth).

Fenton girls volleyball team runs record to 8-0 Bison football team loses to St. Francis

By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

The Fenton girls volleyball team continued its strong play to start the season with a recent 25-20, 25-8 non-conference win over Chicago Intrinsic. The win moved Fenton to 8-0 on the season. “We hadn’t played in more than a week and it showed as we started very slowly and trailed most of the first set,” said Fenton coach Kelly

Kleidorfer. “However, we turned it on to win that first set and continued to roll through the second set.” Mackenzie Miller and Agata Kukielko led Fenton with three service aces each. Julia Kaspari, Vicky Krzyszkowski and Kukielko each had four kills. Miller had 12 assists, while Krzyszkowski and Hanna Matuszewski each had one block. Isa Lozada, making her debut at libero, led Fenton with five digs. Fenton played Streamwood and Riverside-Brookfield earlier this week and will head to Aurora today to face Aurora Central Catholic.

Willowbrook boys soccer team looking to grow as season goes on Warriors sport youthful look, especially on back line; Standout goalie Giase returns

By Mike Miazga

CORRESPONDENT

While the Willowbrook boys soccer team got off to a 1-5 overall record through its first six games, coach Ed DeLaCruz sees plenty of promise. “We are very young,” he said. “Our defensive back line starts two sophomores.” Willowbrook is coming off a 2017 season where it went 7-11 and finished 2-4 in West Suburban Conference Gold Division play. While young, DeLaCruz has talent throughout the roster. Three-year starting goalie Mario Giase is back. “Mario is a captain who I know can play at the next level,” said

DeLaCruz. “He does it all in regards to being our leader and a great student-athlete. He is the total package who is a great coach’s player. He makes people better around him.” Fellow three-year starter David Rizzo also returns at left midfield. “David is a very talented two-footed player,” said DeLaCruz. “He takes the set pieces, free kicks and corner kicks. He is lightning quick with great field presence.” Senior captain Jeff Wolski also returns at defensive midfield. “David easily is the best field-presence player on our team,” said DeLaCruz. “He is super-intelligent on the field and in the classroom. He is a physical player who jumps up with no disregard to heading the ball and winning the 50-50 balls.” Key newcomers to the team include junior center midfielder Dorian Mahone and senior center back Thomas Waldorf. “Dorian had a great summer season leading into the fall,” said DeLa-

Cruz. “He has grown physically and is someone who I will count on regarding holding possession and leading the team with assists. He is a playmaker who is super-athletic. Thomas uses his volleyball skills to win aerial balls. His conditioning is top-notch with anyone else. He is in phenomenal shape. He always wants to take on the best player on the opposing team.” DeLaCruz said depth will be a big benefit for the Warriors. “Our depth has stood out this season and the team chemistry on this team is one of the best I’ve seen as both an assistant and varsity coach at Willowbrook,” he said. DeLaCruz said a key will be the development of the team’s back line. “We have a brand-new back-four defensive line,” he said. “Our outstanding goalkeeper Mario is up to the challenge of leading the troops.” The coach said the team would like to improve its standing in the WSC Gold. “Sixth place isn’t going to get

it done,” he said. “It has hindered our regional positioning for the playoffs so getting off to a good start is crucial.” Willowbrook is playing in the ongoing Pepsi Showdown tournament, the first time the team has been in-

volved in that event in nine years. DeLaCruz said Giase will open some eyes there. “Mario is the real deal and I think he will make a name for himself in the Pepsi Showdown and in big games this season,” he said.

Artman. “This is Matt’s senior year and he is ready to go.” Sophomore Tyler King, junior Brandon Heselton and senior Will Stout also will be looked upon to score. “Tyler is a sophomore who is trying to beat the seniors every day and make a name for himself,” said Artman. “He truly is a hard worker and a tough mental competitor. Brandon is ready to step up in leadership and performance and Will is a hard worker and also is ready to step up for his teammates.” Artman said on the team front, closing the time gap from runners 1

through 7 is high on the agenda. “We want to run as a pack and score as little points as possible and have a great season together,” he said. Artman said the team’s goals are to finish higher in the WSC Gold Division than it did last year and qualify the team for the sectional portion of the state series. Willowbrook was slated to compete in the Lyons Township invite, but that was canceled due to the weather. The Warriors were scheduled to run in Peoria over the weekend.

The Addison Trail girls cross country team is far from thin in the experience department. The Blazers return a number of key veteran individuals, including sophomore Viviana Sanfilippo who qualified for the sectional as a freshman and has the third-fastest time in the history of the Addison Trail girls’ program. In addition to Sanfilippo, also back are seniors Lizbeth Balbuena, Natalie Diaz and Mercedes Lopez. “Our strength is having some returning third- and fourth-year runners who are acting as strong role models for the growing group of young and new team members,” said Addison Trail coach Kirsten Olson. Freshman Maddie Ford in her first meet this year placed herself in the top-10 fastest time (No. 9) in program history. “I’m excited to see what Maddie brings to the varsity level,” said Olson. “She is a true runner and it is nice to see her challenging herself and wanting to learn how to get better every day.” Olson said Sanfilippo has a major goal in mind this season. “Viviana still is our lead and has her sights set on reaching the state meet this year,” she said. Olson said one point of emphasis for the team has been summer training. “We are focusing on commitment, especially regarding the summer running to build a proper base for success in the fall,” she said. Olson is looking forward to the West Suburban Conference Gold Division portion of the schedule. “I am excited for the conference season to see us compete at multiple levels and how I anticipate that we will improve our standing at the lower levels,” she said. Addison Trail opened the season at the weather-delayed Fenton invitational where Sanfilippo earned a plaque by placing 23rd at the varsity level. Ford also ran that ninth-fastest time in program history. “Maddie had an outstanding initial

performance,” said Olson. Addison Trail boys cross country “Young runners” is the catch phrase this season for the Addison Trail boys cross country team. “We are going to be very inexperienced this year,” said Addison Trail coach Brad Donaldson. “Our top returners all are sophomores and while they ran in the regional last season that is really the extent of their experience.”

We are focusing on improvement over the course of the season and to control what we can control.” – Brad Donaldson, Addison Trail coach

Donaldson said the team is focused on its training. “Our main focus this year is on the day-to-day training and the process of becoming a full-time runner,” he explained. “By doing the little things, we hope to stay healthy for the season.” Senior Randy Alamarales is new to the program this season and, Donaldson said, likely will be its No. 1 runner. He’s currently working through an injury. “When healthy, he will have a chance to qualify for sectionals,” said Donaldson. Sophomore Dylan Moran is the team’s top returning runner from last year. “Dylan put in a lot of work over the summer and I expect he will take a real leap this year,” said Donaldson. Senior Sal Lopez also is new to cross country this season. “He is a raw talent,” the coach noted. “He will be a great contributor for us team-wise.” Addison Trail had its first two meets either cancelled our altered due to weather. “We are focusing on improvement over the course of the season and to control what we can control,” said Donaldson. “If we improve over the year and are competitive in the conference meet and regional and get an athlete or two to sectionals, it will be a good season.”

Business USDA, HHS helps rural communities fight opioid misuse The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced last week that a group of Cooperative Extension partners will have the opportunity to apply for grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to help rural communities combat opioid use disorders. “With the impact opioid misuse is

having on rural America, we cannot build strong, prosperous communities without addressing this crisis,” said Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development Anne Hazlett. There is $8.25 million in available funding through the Rural Opioid Technical Assistance (ROTA) program.

most energy efficiency sector jobs all now employ over 30,000 workers (1.9 million total). Only four states saw a decline in energy efficiency employment in 2017. With workers in 99.7% of U.S. counties, energy efficiency has become a nationwide job engine integral to state and local economic growth. More than 300,000 energy efficiency jobs are located in America’s rural areas, and 900,000 jobs are found in the nation’s top 25 metro areas. One out of every six U.S. construction workers are involved in energy efficiency, as are more than 315,000 manufacturing jobs, according to the report. Other key findings: • 11% of energy efficiency jobs are held by veterans, nearly double the national average for veterans’ share of employment (6%) • In 40 states and the District of Columbia, more Americans work in energy efficiency than work with fossil fuels • Construction and manufacturing make up over 70% of U.S. energy efficiency jobs • More than 1 million energy efficiency jobs are in heating, ventilation, and cooling technologies • Energy efficiency employers are expecting 9% job growth in 2018 • Energy efficiency now employs workers in 3,000 of America’s 3,007 counties • Small businesses are driving America’s energy efficiency job boom, with 79% of energy efficiency businesses employing fewer than 20 workers

Energy efficiency added more new jobs than any other industry in the entire U.S. energy sector in 2017, and now employs nearly 2.25 million Americans, according to a new jobs analysis from E4TheFuture and the national, nonpartisan business group E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs). The new report, Energy Efficiency Jobs in America 2018, finds energy efficiency workers now outnumber elementary and middle school teachers, and are nearly double the number of Americans who work in law enforcement. “We have long known that energy efficiency is a major source of jobs, and by conservative estimates, about one in every hundred U.S. adults now works in energy efficiency,” said Steve Cowell, president of E4TheFuture. “Efficiency is also a key strategy for meeting multiple policy objectives. It saves money, improves health, lowers carbon emissions and creates local jobs that cannot be outsourced.” Energy Efficiency added 67,000 net jobs in 2017, making it the fastest-growing job category in the energy sector. Energy efficiency employs twice as many workers as all fossil fuel industries combined. Efficiency workers now account for 35 percent of all U.S. energy jobs. Among the states, California leads energy-efficiency employment with 310,000 jobs, followed by Texas (154,000), New York (117,000), Florida (112,000), and Illinois (87,000). Seventeen states now employ more than 50,000 workers and the 25 states with the
