On Tuesday, May 21, The GardenWorks Project, in collaboration with Bensenville Early Learning Center, Metropolitan Family Services, and Bensenville School District 2, will build 15 food gardens for 15 school families facing food insecurity on Tioga School grounds. The area nonprofit, founded in 2012, is increasing access to fresh, organic vegetables in west suburban Chicagoland by providing families in need with the resources to grow food at home. A community garden will be built and planted by GardenWorks Project volunteers alongside receiving families, all of whom are eligible for emergency food assistance. Households receiving a 4’ X 8’ garden plot will be taught how to maintain and harvest the garden as well as given nutrition curriculum that follow the garden’s seasonal harvest schedule. While emergency food assistance programs provide a comprehensive supply of food items, families often run out of food during the month and are constrained by limited resources for healthy and organic products. These 15 gardens will be of 101 food gardens installed for food insecure families by The GardenWorks Project this spring. All families referred to the organization come from the 45 food assistance partners within the western Chicagoland region. “Children facing food insecurity are much more likely to face chronic health conditions in the future,” said Jeannie Iseman, The GardenWorks Project’s Executive Director. “Our hope is that these gardens serve as a vehicle towards empowerment, education, and health promotion.”

ComEd Icebox Derby STEM event for teen girls This summer, 30 young women from the Chicago area will build both high-tech racecars and pathways to their futures in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Girls can apply now for the sixth-annual ComEd Icebox Derby, a competition that challenges teens from across Chicagoland to transform recycled refrigerators into electric and solar-powered racecars. Applications are available now at IceboxDerby.com The application period will close on Friday, June 7. The application is open to any girl who is an Illinois resident between the ages of 13 and 18. Every participant will receive a $1,500 scholarship for completing the program. They will work alongside ComEd mentors to build a fridge car and learn about practical applications of STEM in daily life and STEM career options. The competition will culminate with a once-in-a-lifetime experience as participants race their electric- and solar-powered fridge cars at Daley Plaza in Chicago on Saturday, Aug. 3. “We’ve got to engage and empower young women to continue their STEM studies and see opportunities available to them down the road,” said Joe Dominguez, CEO of ComEd. “Through the Icebox Derby, these young women work alongside women at ComEd who are leaders and have built their own STEM careers, and learn about the paths they are taking. We hope to inspire them to come back and work for us someday.” This summer, nearly 10 percent of former Icebox Derby participants will work at ComEd as summer interns. The Icebox Derby was launched six years ago to educate and empower young women to explore careers in STEM and become the innovative workforce of the future.

Bill allowing undocumented immigrants access to student financial aid goes to governor Also applies to transgender people who have not registered for the draft

By Peter Hancock CAPITOL NEWS ILLINOIS

The Illinois Senate on May 8 passed and sent to Gov. J.B. Pritzker a bill that would allow undocumented immigrants to receive state-funded student financial aid to attend college. House Bill 2691, known as the Retaining Illinois Students and Equity, or RISE Act, passed the House on April 11. It also would extend eligibility for the state’s Monetary Award Program, or MAP grants, to certain transgender individuals who are disqualified from state or federal financial aid because they have not registered for the draft. “Just because someone is undocumented doesn’t mean they aren’t members of our society. It doesn’t mean that they don’t contribute to our society,” Sen. Omar Aquino, a Chicago Democrat and lead sponsor of the bill in the Senate, said during floor debate. “Undocumented families in Illinois are Illinois families. They are Illinois residents that pay taxes — taxes that actually, because they are undocumented, they are not able to receive the return on those taxes back to them.” But the idea provoked strong opposition from Republicans, who argued that expanding the pool of students who are eligible for MAP grants by allowing non-citizens to receive them would crowd out legal citizens from getting them. “Ladies and gentlemen, the math is simple,” Sen. Jim Oberweis, a Sugar Grove Republican, said. “Each and every one of us have students in our districts who are relying on MAP

funding. If we’re going to take some of that funding away from our citizens and give it to non-citizens, that means we’re depriving some of our citizens, some of our students, from being able to have that funding to help with their education. This is just absolutely, fundamentally wrong.” Aquino conceded Illinois does not fully fund the MAP grant program, saying grants are awarded on a firstcome-first-served basis, and there are often more applicants than there are grant funds to go around. But he said that issue is separate from the issue of eligibility. “I’d love to leave here at the end of this session saying we fully funded MAP. I would love that,” Aquino said. “But that’s not this bill. This bill just opens up opportunities to students to have the option to be a college student and hopefully get a degree.” Other Democrats argued that extending eligibility for the grants would benefit the state at-large. “As you know, these students are already enrolled in college,” said Sen. Iris Martinez, also of Chicago. “They are looking at professional careers. These are the future doctors, our future nurses, our future professors. These are individuals who are right now getting a profession and will someday be serving us. Let it be in the health field, let it be in education.” The bill also eliminates one of the rules for students to continue their eligibility for the grants beyond their sophomore year. Under current rules, students who have received MAP funding for 75

If we’re going to take some of that funding away from our citizens and give it to non-citizens, that means we’re depriving some of our citizens, some of our students, from being able to have that funding to help with their education. This is just absolutely, fundamentally wrong.”

– State Sen. Jim Oberweis

credit hours must qualify as a junior in their degree program to be eligible to continue. Critics of that rule, however, have said it works against students from disadvantaged backgrounds and low-income communities, particularly students of color, who often need to take remedial courses early in their college careers before they can handle regular college-level classes. The bill passed the Senate on a vote of 35-to-15, and will head to Gov. Pritzker.

Coalition warns of ‘commercialization’ of marijuana CAPITOL NEWS ILLINOIS

A coalition opposed to recreational marijuana legalization shared concerns about public safety effects they say will result if the measure before the Illinois Senate becomes law. The Smart Approach to Marijuana coalition, which spoke at an Illinois Statehouse news conference May 8, included police chiefs, sheriffs, representatives of the NAACP, the Catholic Conference of Illinois and other advocacy organizations. They warned that “commercialization and normalization” of marijuana resulting from the language in Senate Bill 7 could lead to in-

creased usage and more instances of people driving under the influence. “We’re concerned about mainly two things: The addictive potential of recreational marijuana, as well as the questionable wisdom of the state commercializing a drug into an industry that will profit from it,” said Bob Gilligan of the Catholic Conference of Illinois. Gilligan said proponents are incorrectly categorizing legalization as a social justice issue, and he noted language to expunge the records of people charged with marijuana offenses could be filed independently of the legalization bill. Theresa Haley, president of the civil rights organization NAACP,

said despite supporters’ claims that the bill contains equity language, legalization would target poor communities for profit. “You’re creating an addiction; you’re adding to an addiction that’s already out there that’s illegal and you’re making it legal and more people are going to suffer,” Haley said. “Again, rich people are getting more rich on the backs of poor people.” Des Plaines Democratic Rep. Marty Moylan urged his colleagues to oppose the legalization effort, framing it as a “David vs. Goliath” fight against big money. He likened the marijuana industry’s push for legalization as “another big tobacco.”

Bruce Kettelkamp, Christian County sheriff, cited a Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas study, which said marijuana-related traffic deaths more than doubled from 55 deaths in 2013 to 125 deaths in 2016. “I’m trying to protect everybody in the state of Illinois from having this bill passed,” Kettelkamp said. Law enforcement also opposed a measure which would allow a person to possess five homegrown marijuana plants, claiming it “invites foreign cartels, drug traffickers and organized crime to move into neighborhoods and has proven to be a disaster in other states.”

Andy Duran, executive director of Linking Efforts Against Drugs, said the bill as it stands is about profits. “What we’re really talking about is the creation of a fully commercialized industry that is incentivized to sell as much marijuana as it can,” he said. “If this were truly a bill about public health, creating an industry of addiction profiteers would be strictly off the table.” Duran, whose organization works to fight youth addiction, said the state could take a position between prohibition and commercialization, and he noted he was not opposed to decriminalization or medicinal marijuana programs.

EEH psychologist concerned about sanctioned marijuana On May 4, legislation was unveiled in Illinois that would create a sanctioned marijuana industry in Illinois. I was deeply concerned when I read the text – I could hardly be- Aaron Weiner lieve that the bill sponsors would, in the name of public health and “community restoration,” propose a system so clearly designed to sell as much marijuana and THC products to our community as possible. Consider: • This bill sets no THC caps whatsoever. • It allows for advertising of marijuana products. • It allows sale of high-potency THC extracts, which have been shown, time and time again, to be linked to the development of psychosis and schizophrenia. • It allows for sale of THC-laced candies, chocolates and other edibles. • It allows for sale to individuals as young as 21, when their brain has not finished developing, and marijuana has been shown to, literally, alter the physical shape of the brain.

• It allows for a pot shop to open as little as 1,000 feet from a school. That’s less than one-fifth of a mile or about a three-minute walk. This is not what a public health-driven drug policy change looks like. If we alter our drug policy, it should be to reduce the number of drug users in Illinois. This bill will do the exact opposite. We deserve better than this. And we can do better. I call on our elected officials to make the choice to stand up and protect those they represent: reject this façade of a bill and insist on developing a better one – one developed in conjunction with healthcare experts. To anyone who shares my concerns: please reach out to your lawmakers immediately. They listen to who leaves them messages and they do pay attention to how many of their constituents write them e-mails. Now is the time to speak up. The bill is set to be voted on before the current legislative session ends on May 31. Let’s work together to push back against big business interests and keep our community healthy, safe and productive.

Conroy brings attention to Mental Health Awareness Month In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, State Rep. Deb Conroy, D-Villa Park, issued the following statement: “Mental Health Awareness Month was established by Congress in 1949, bringing attention to the suffering of World War II veterans upon their return home. Prior to that, the first organization of its kind - Mental Health America - used the month of May to generate awareness about the deficient care available to people with mental illnesses after the organization’s founder suffered inhumane treatment while he was institutionalized. “This year marks the 70th anniversary of national recognition for Mental Health Awareness Month, and while we’ve made significant advances in our understanding and treatment of mental illness, access to information and early intervention for the general public is wholly inadequate. As the chair of the first Illinois House Mental Health Committee, I’ve worked with my colleagues to engage healthcare providers, experts and most importantly individuals living with mental illnesses to develop policies that promote

healthy lifestyles and provide greater access to resources for the 20 percent of Illinoisans who chronically struggle with their mental health. “This year I introduced the Mental Health Modernization and Access Improvement Act, which would increase access to affordable mental health care for people living in all communities. I’ve also cosponsored legislation to provide mental health education and screenings in our schools, empowering young people to seek out the care they need early. “I’m celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month because, in addition to making effective medical care and counseling available, it’s up to us to end the negative stigma surrounding mental illness. My hope is that discussions in classrooms, workplaces and in the General Assembly this month will shed light on how common it is to struggle with mental health and encourage people who are suffering to seek the help they need without fear of judgment.” (Editor’s note: This was received from the office of State Representative Deb Conroy.)

Slices of life

Bigfoot, small foot

The legend of Bigfoot lives on in American folklore, and although I don’t know for sure if the big and hairy creature actually exists in the wild, I do believe in big foot, or at least big feet. I live with a bunch of them. (Big and hairy big-footed creatures, that is.) My husband and sons tower over me by eight to 10 inches. They all sport feet that hover around size 11 or larger so there’s no shortage of Bigfoots at our house. I line their shoes up on a shelf by the back door. It’s a morning ritual. Their lengthy sneakers surpass the width of the shelf. They hang over

the edge, barely defying gravity. A centimeter more and I think they’d teeter totter their way to the floor. We live in a two-story house, and I used to be able to distinguish my husband’s upstairs footsteps from our sons’. His were heavier and broader. Big feet make big clomping

sounds. Then, one by one, the boys joined him in big foot status. I no longer know who is awake and walking (stomping) around upstairs because their stomps are practically indistinguishable. My youngest son was the last to join the big foot crew. Shoes he wore just a couple of years ago seem miniature in comparison to his now gigantic feet. I’ve taken possession of one of his old pair of slider sandals. They are now three sizes too small for him, a couple of sizes

Cullerton takes a stand against government redundancy To help eliminate redundant bureaucracy, State Senator Tom Cullerton passed a measure to prohibit the State of Illinois from creating new units of local government. Cullerton (D-Villa Park) passed Senate Bill 1215, which would prohibit the General Assembly from creating any new unit of local government until Jan. 1, 2022. “As a state with nearly 7,000 units of government, we need to take proactive steps to reduce and eliminate unnecessary layers bureaucracy,” Cullerton said. “This measure will put a stop to the overzealous creation of government entities while our municipalities evaluate and consolidate services to promote the efficient use of taxpayer dollars.”

Senate Bill 1215 also prohibits dividing existing units of local government but does not apply to the creation of a new unit of local government from the consolidation of two or more preexisting units of local government. In 2013, Cullerton worked with DuPage County Chairman Dan Cronin to implement an effective government consolidation model to eliminate redundant forms of government. Last year, Cullerton continued to advance his mission of making sure government is working in tune with the needs of Illinois’ residents. To continue his mission to ensure government is working for Illinois residents, Cullerton passed House Bill 5777, which decreases the waiting period from 150 to 60 days after the first

mandated county audit is performed. The law went into effect on Jan. 1, 2019. “Consolidating government the right way will help lower property taxes for DuPage County residents,” he said. “Speeding up the process will help residents experience government savings sooner rather than later.” Previously, it could take over two and a half years for some Illinois counties to consolidate local government entities. Senate Bill 1215 passed the Senate with unanimous support and is now in the House for consideration.

While big feet surround me, we have a set of tiny ones in our midst. A new granddaughter was thankfully born with ten fingers, ten toes and two perfect little feet. She doesn’t wear shoes yet – unless it is a special occasion. Ditto that for socks. She is like a mini hippy – barefoot and carefree. Sucking on her bare toes. Pooping without regard in the living room. Like my daughter, I didn’t put shoes on my babies until absolutely necessary. I read somewhere that once you do, and once they are walking, they begin the long and arduous process of walking away. I didn’t want them to walk

away. Then again, of course I did. Parenting is like that: a perfect dichotomous set-up. You can be completely right and terribly wrong all at the same time. My granddaughter just started walking. She staggers with the unsteadiness of a baby learning to walk, arms stretched outward to help with balance. Her gait reminds me of Frankenstein. She does not. This summer we’ll spend time at the lake, walking on the beach. We’ll all make footprints – some large, some not so large and some tiny. I hope no one mistakes them for Bigfoot. Whatever the size, they’ll make their imprint in the sand much like

they’ve all made an imprint on my heart. Big, small and everything in between. Because despite the fact that we are all walking our own path, each of us making our own footprints we are also making them together, walking it together. Cheesy as Gouda, I understand. But that’s family. And I’ll take my cheese any way I can get it –hairy, big footed and all.

Video gambling industry: Don’t raise taxes, raise the bets By Grant Morgan

CAPITOL NEWS ILLINOIS

If the state of Illinois wants more revenue from video gaming, one gaming industry executive said May 9, lawmakers should loosen betting restrictions rather than raise video gambling tax rates. Ivan Hernandez, who heads the Illinois Gaming Machine Operators Association, offered that proposal to the state House Executive Committee, which is considering several alternatives for increasing state revenue from video gambling. “Our proposal is projected to far exceed (Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s) request, without resorting to a tax increase,” Hernandez said. The Executive Committee, chaired

by Democratic Rep. Chris Welch of Hillside, heard testimony May 9 from representatives of the video gambling industry who unanimously oppose a proposed tax hike that Gov. Pritzker outlined in his late-February budget address. No legislation has been introduced so far. Video gambling machines are taxed at 30 percent, with the remaining money split 50-50 between the machine operator and the establishment housing the machines. Pritzker’s plan would increase that state’s tax rate to 50 percent, resulting in more than $100 million in new revenue for state and local governments. Opponents have framed their argument around the local establishments—mom-and-pop restaurants,

bars, VFW posts and more—that they say rely on the machines for increased foot traffic and, ultimately, successful business. Elements of Hernandez’s proposal include raising the bet limit on single plays from $2 to $4, increasing the maximum winnings on a single play from $500 to $1,199, allowing games with higher jackpots, and increasing the number of gambling terminals allowed at one location from five to six. Those measures, Hernandez said, would create $210 million in new tax revenue the first two years, without changing the tax rates. Policy objectives were not so clear cut for the other topic of the hearing, which focused on the largely unregulated market of “sweepstakes” ma-

chines that the Illinois Gaming Board, along with many state and federal courts, have maintained are illegal. Sweepstakes are in many ways similar to video gambling machines, but do not fall under the same state oversight, nor are taxes on them paid to state and local governments, according to a WBEZ investigation last year. Because they face no other regulation than to be registered with the Illinois Department of Revenue, the machines can be found in places where video gambling terminals have been banned, WBEZ reported. Cory Aronovitz, a lawyer with the Chicago-based Casino Law Group, told lawmakers unfamiliar with the matter that the machines are kiosks for “product promotion,” meaning a per-

son pays cash to the machine, receives, for example, a coupon for a discount on items on a website, then gets the chance to win cash by playing a slotslike game. Rep. Keith Wheeler (R-Oswego), argued sweepstakes machines should be placed under the same regulatory laws as video gambling terminals. He said any regulatory changes addressing sweepstakes machines would be packaged in a gambling overhaul bill that has yet to appear in the Legislature. On top of considering how to legalize sports betting and whether to allow more casinos in Illinois, state lawmakers are considering changes to policy affecting the video gambling terminals that appear in almost 7,000 local establishments across the state.

Two new plans in play as debate about legalizing sports gambling continues

By Grant Morgan

CAPITOL NEWS ILLINOIS

There are now almost as many different plans to legalize sports betting in Illinois as there are states that have legalized it in any fashion. As Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb on May 8 signed a sports betting bill in that state—making it the ninth state to do so since a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year allowed the practice— lawmakers in Illinois unleashed two more plans for stakeholders to consider, bringing the total number of plans in Illinois to seven. The two plans were filed just hours before a House subcommittee MET to discuss sports gambling in Illinois, leaving testifiers the difficult task of deciding their stance on the new plans

without having had much time to review them. Rep. Michael Zalewski (D-Riverside), who has taken the charge on legalizing sports betting in Illinois, filed the two amendments to House Bill 1260 on May 8. Each amendment outlines yet another system by which lawmakers hope to support Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s goal of bringing more than $200 million in sports wagering revenues to Illinois in the next fiscal year. The first plan would allow both online sports gambling and brick-andmortar betting at the state’s casinos, race tracks, betting parlors and video gambling terminals. Licensing fees would range from $5 million to $10 million, while wagering would be

taxed at 25 percent. Under that plan, the Illinois Lottery could also allow wagering in 2,500 retail locations, with a $30 million initial license fee and a 100-percent tax. The second plan limits the number of licenses to seven for brick-and-mortar locations and three for online operators. Licensing fees in this plan range from $5 million to $20 million, but the 25 percent tax on wagering stays the same. Also under the second plan, professional sports leagues would be paid a 0.2-percent royalty in exchange for official league data. Representatives from Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association said their data is the speediest and most accurate available, and that they could

boost the sports betting industry in Illinois if they were the sole providers of data. “If we are being compensated by the casinos, we have a financial incentive to drive up the amount of money bet in Illinois,” said Bryan Seeley of MLB. Rep. Jonathan Carroll, a Democrat from Northbrook, questioned whether third-party data providers don’t already supply speedy data to operators, and wondered what the leagues would do to increase betting in the state. “If our state is looking to generate revenue, … what is the return on investment,” Carroll asked, referring to the league royalty fees. Representatives from the state’s race tracks and horsemen’s associa-

tions were also present, and made arguments that sports betting should be coupled with expanded gambling at race tracks to bring back business. Josh Whitman, director of athletics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, spoke on behalf of 12 of the state’s 13 Division I schools— all except Chicago State University— when he opposed allowing sports betting on collegiate athletics. Both plans introduced May 8 include restrictions on betting on Illinois collegiate teams. Zalewski, the amendments’ sponsor, encouraged stakeholders at the end of the hearing to figure out exactly what parts of each plan they support, and how many votes the provisions would garner in the General Assembly.

Art by Charlene Lee-Freislinger now at EAG Gallery ing for more than 30 years. She has drawn commissioned house portraits for people across the United States and in the countries of England, Croatia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, and India. “I love depicting the uniqueness of each house and how it relates to the owner’s family,” she says. Many times, she will include the family pet on the front lawn for a truly personalized portrait of their home. Historic landmarks in Elmhurst are also a favorite subject of Lee-Freislinger, including the iconic York Theatre. But the artist is extremely versatile and accomplished in many media. An Elmhurst resident for over 44 years, Lee-Freislinger earned a reputation as an outstanding local muralist. Her acrylic paintings tend to be more abstract, as she is more discriminating and freer with her vision. She is constantly experimenting with new media. “I can never stop growing as an artist,” she said.

HEALTHIER GUMS THROUGH ORTHODONTICS

Along with brushing, one of the by Jeffrey T. Boland cornerstones of good oral hygiene is Licensed Orthodontic Specialist daily flossing. However, threading and sliding floss between teeth can be next to impossible if crowded teeth leave little or no room. When this happens, over the long term, food and plaque collect in the nooks and crannies between teeth, setting up conditions favorable to periodontal (gum) disease. Left untreated, the associated inflammation can cause gum recession, bone loss, and possible loss of teeth. However, if the problem of overcrowded teeth is addressed early with orthodontic treatment, flossing and brushing will likely be easier and more effective. The obvious benefit is not only straighter, cleaner teeth, but also a greater chance of keeping your teeth. When you have braces, it’s very important to brush and floss after every meal in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout your orthodontic treatment. If you need help choosing the right toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss, please ask us and we can help you choose the right products for your teeth and your appliance. To schedule a consultation, please call our office. Available by appointment, we honor all kinds of insurance. Straighter Smiles Are Our Specialty! P.S. It is quite common for children to develop a mild form of gum disease called “gingivitis,” with early symptoms of puffy, swollen, or red gums.

At this year’s commencement for graduate students, the Elmhurst College Board of Trustees will confer an honorary doctoral degree on Howard Howard Reich Reich, an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, author and longtime arts critic at the Chicago Tribune. On Thursday evening, May 30, Reich will receive an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters at the graduate ceremony, and will deliver the commencement address. The College will recognize Reich’s distinguished career and contributions, in particular his focus on the Holocaust and genocide. The son of two Holocaust survivors, Reich discovered his parents’ neverdiscussed story and brought it to the screen in “Prisoner of Her Past,” a PBS documentary he wrote, coproduced and narrated. He brought this story to Elmhurst College in 2010 for that year’s Holocaust Lecture. He returned in 2017 to reflect on the work and legacy of Nobel Peace Prize laureate

Elie Wiesel. At the time, Reich was developing his recently published book, “The Art of Inventing Hope: Intimate Conversations with Elie Wiesel.” Reich worked on the project with Wiesel during the last four years of Wiesel’s life. Reich has covered music and the arts for the Chicago Tribune since 1978, and currently is in postproduction on his third documentary, “Left-Handed Pianist,” based on

By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

The Fenton girls track team wrapped up its season recently at the Class 3A Glenbard North sectional in Carol Stream. Fenton finished 13th as a team in the standings and had no individual qualifiers for the state meet. Senior Hanna Matuszewski was eighth in the 100 run with a time of 13.11. She also took sixth in the 200 with a time of 26.96. Sophomore Guadalupe Honorato was 25th in the 1,600 at 6:44.59. Ruth Kirkwood, a senior, was 22nd in the 3,200 with a time of 14:10.66. Junior Britania Aguilar took 27th in the 100 hurdles with a time of 20.02. Nicolette Castillo was 25th in the 300 hurdles at 58.78. Fenton was 14th in the 400 relay with a time of 56.38 with Theresa Clanton, Ahtziri Cardenas, Rebecca Millard and Sophia Haska. Fenton also was 14th in the 800 relay in 2:03.29 with Clanton, Cardenas, Millard and Haska. The Bison took eighth in the 1,600 relay after Analisa Murillo, Ally Durkowski, Mackenzie Miller and Hailey Miller ran 4:25.19, much lower than their 4:26.04 seed time. Durkowski and Hailey Miller are freshmen, while Murillo is a sophomore. Murillo tied for 11th in the high jump at 4-9. Julianna Krebasch tied for 11th in the pole vault at 7-3. Noelia Vazquez was 29th in the shot put at 25-2 3/4. She also took 26th in the discus at 70-8.

Fenton baseball The Fenton baseball team split a pair of Metro Suburban Conference Red Division games against Elmwood Park recently. In a 4-2 win against Elmwood Park, Fenton came back from a 2-1 deficit with two runs in the fourth inning and then added a single run in the seventh inning for some breathing room. Andrew Pietrucha was 2-for-4, while Michael Rago went 1-for-3 with a run scored. Jose Alvarez was 1-for-3 with an RBI. Aidan Kress went 1-for-3, while Nicholas DeSimone had an RBI. David Burch walked twice and scored two runs. Kress’ hit was a double, while Burch and Rago stole two bases each. Fenton had seven stolen bases in the game. Pietrucha was the winning pitcher. He threw a complete-game four-hitter and struck out five. Fenton then lost 7-1 to Elmwood Park. The game was tied 1-1 until Elmwood scored five runs in the fifth and one more in the sixth. Burch was 2-for-4, while Alvarez went 2-for-3 with a run scored. Kress, Pietrucha, Rago and John Salgado each had a hit. Rago had an RBI. Alvarez and Salgado each doubled. Kress took the loss on the mound. He fanned five in 4 1/3 innings. Rago struck out four in 2 2/3 innings. Fenton was 4-14 overall through late last week.

Addison Trail boys track team competes in WSC Gold meet Blazers earn numerous first-place finishes at frosh-soph level

By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

The Addison Trail boys track team has seen steady progress this season, according to coach Jim Ziebka. Heading into the recent West Suburban Conference Gold Division meet, Ziebka noted the Blazers have set at least 20 personal records in every meet except one, and in that contest they had 18. “Our team is comprised primarily of young guys so we had to have a lot of the young guys competing on the varsity level,” he explained. “I have been very pleased with their progress throughout the season. Our upperclassmen have been pushed by the younger guys all year. Depth has proven to be a bit of an issue but we have been able to mitigate the ups and downs well. We have a solid core of team-first guys who show up to work hard every day in practice. The future

looks good if these guys can maintain the same level of drive that has carried them through this point in the season. Senior Cesar Herrera has been a top performer in the 110 and 300 hurdles as well as the 1,600 relay. Junior Jonathan Ramos has competed well in the 3,200 and 1,600 relays as well as the 800. Junior Quincy Gunnerson has been a key in the triple jump and the 800 and 1,600 relays, while junior Sulaemon Ahmed has starred in the triple and long jumps, as well as the 800 and 400 relays. Sophomore Dylan Moran has set school records for the 3,200 both indoors and outdoors, and also has performed well in the 1,600. Other key performers for the Blazers include sophomore Cole Greaves (3,200, 1,600 relays and 400), sophomore Horfanel Vivero (400), freshman Alex Martinez (3,200 and 1,600

runs), freshman John Taci (400 and 1,600 relay) and freshman Patrick Campbell (long and triple jumps). At the recent WSC Gold meet at Hinsdale South, Sergio Serna took 12th in the 100 with a time of 12.52. He was seventh in the 200 at 24.46. Taci was sixth in the 400 at 55.83, while Ramos was sixth in the 800 at 2:07.17. Moran was seventh in the 1,600 with a time of 4:49.38. He took fourth in the 3,200 at 10:05.88. Herrera was fourth in the 110 hurdles in 16.87. He also was fourth in the 300 hurdles at 43.92. Addison Trail was sixth in the 400 relay in 49.54 with Eddy Espinoza, Jaden Wease, Gunnerson and Serna. The 800 relay team of Ahmed, Wease, Gunnerson and Serna took sixth at 1:39.24 and the 1,600 relay team of Taci, Greaves, Gunnerson and Herrera was seventh in 3:49.25. The

3,200 relay team took fifth in 9:11.89 with Taci, Greaves, Ramos and Lukas Rodriguez. Sal Napoli was 11th in the shot put at 34-1 1/2. He also was 10th in the discus with a throw of 97-0. Ahmed was 12th in the long jump at 17-4. He also was eighth in the triple jump at 37-1. Frosh-soph conference meet highlights included Morri Bernardo taking fifth in the 400 at 59.62. Martinez was fourth in the 1,600 at 4:57.18. Martinez won the frosh-soph 3,200 title in 10:39.92. His next closest competitor was 10:49.98. Hanza Kittaneh won the 110 hurdles with a time of 17.59. He was second in the 300 hurdles at 45.76. Raul Villarreal was second in the high jump at 5-4, while Robert Roszkiewicz was fourth at 5-2. Campbell won the triple jump frosh-soph title at 39-4 1/2.
