Oak Meadows Preserve named ‘Renovation of the Year’ by Golf Inc. out, designed by renowned golf course architect Greg Martin, has been extremely positive, and elite golfers will test the new track on July 9 when The Preserve serves as a qualifying site for the U.S. Amateur Championship. The property was reconfigured to reduce flooding in nearby communities by holding an additional 20 million gallons of stormwater from Salt Creek during flood events while also minimizing flood damage to the course. Only 15 percent of the 288 acres is dedicated to fairways, greens and
teeing areas, and the number of holes was reduced from 27 to 18. In addition, 25 acres of new wetlands and 43 acres of riparian habitat were created and 1.25 miles along the Salt Creek corridor were restored to improve water quality and plant and animal diversity. Other improvements include more than 100 acres of restored upland habitat and a connection to the regional Salt Creek Greenway Trail, making The Preserve accessible to hikers, joggers and cyclists. The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County and partners the
DuPage Salt Creek Workgroup and DuPage County Stormwater Management funded the restoration project. The River Prairie Group of the Sierra Club also supported the project’s initiatives. The rainiest May in recorded history tested The Preserve’s reengineered stormwater management. The former golf course would have been closed at least 16 of the 31 days in May due to flooding. However, the improved golf course remained open the entire month and helped protect the community from flooding.

Golf Inc. magazine has named The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County’s The Preserve at Oak Meadows the No. 1 “Renovation of the Year” for public golf courses in the world in its May/June 2018 issue. It is the fifth award The Preserve has won for its innovative design and environmental features since it reopened in late summer 2017. Golf Inc. judges called The Preserve at Oak Meadows “a good example of the golf course acting as an open space amenity that preserves valued natural habitat and provides needed flood control measures,” adding, “this project meets and exceeds the complex goals set forth by the many regulatory agencies involved.” Forest Preserve District of DuPage County President Joe Cantore said the latest recognition is further affirmation that the District achieved its goals for the preserve. “Our goal all along was to be a model for how conservation agencies can blend ecological initiatives with golf and recreation,” he said. “We’re thrilled and humbled to receive recognition for our vision for this preserve.” Other awards The Preserve at Oak Meadows has also won: ● 2017 Green Star environmental award from Golf Digest for its environmental solution by golf development ● Force of Nature Award from Chicago Wilderness for serving as a role model with its conservation and restoration efforts ● 2017 Merit Award from the
American Society of Landscape Architects ● No. 6 in Illinois (No. 1 in DuPage County) in Golfweek’s 2018 Best Courses You Can Play The Preserve underwent a major two-year environmental restoration to improve stormwater management and water quality for Salt Creek, enhance habitat for fish and other aquatic species and create a premier 18-hole public golf destination.

Muddy Waters wrote the songs of Chicago’s blues legacy
Editor’s note: The weekly Illinois Bicentennial series is brought to you by the Illinois Associated Press Media Editors and Illinois Press Association. More than 20 newspapers are creating stories about the state’s history, places and key moments in advance of the Bicentennial on Dec. 3, 2018.

ed many of his best-known records and rock ‘n’ roll icon Chuck Berry strutted his stuff. Family members of the late Willie Dixon, who penned some of the biggest hits of Waters and fellow Chess artists such as Howlin’ Wolf, operate the studios with their nonprofit Blues Heaven Foundation. Keith Nelson, Dixon’s grandson, conducts the tours and serves on the Blues Heaven board of directors. He said tours, which cost $10, are given hourly from noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Since June 2017, Muddy Waters’ image has beamed down from a 10-story mural at 17 N. State St. in Chicago. But the king bee of Chicago blues looms even larger over the city with his outsized musical and cultural legacy. The Mississippi Delta native, born McKinley Morganfield in 1913, followed the Great Migration to Chicago in 1943, where he found stardom with his groundbreaking electric guitar sound and classic bands. He died at age 70 in 1983, but new generations of artists often cite the influence of the six-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, and Waters’ songs such as “I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man” and “Rollin’ Stone” are used frequently by filmmakers and advertisers. International tourists visit Chicago to bathe in Waters’ lore, including a visit to his longtime home at 4339 S. Lake Park. There’s not much to see, though, because the house that Tim Samuelson, Chicago’s cultural historian, has called Chicago’s most historic home has stood vacant and in a state of disrepair for many years. Plans are stalled to convert the Kenwood twoflat into a museum or other attraction. Waters’ bluesman son Larry “Mud” Morganfield, who like his dad is a
100 and 350 people tour Chess weekly, and many ask about Waters. “He’s always a huge part of the legacy,” Nelson said. “Muddy would be your most popular artist. He was your face. I’m a big comic book fan, and if you had a blues comic book, Muddy would be your Superman.” Musicians seeking to capture the Waters mojo may soon have their choice of two recording studios at Chess. “We’re planning to put older recording equipment from 1961 upstairs and modern recording equipment in a
new studio downstairs,” Nelson said. “Hopefully this project will be done by the end of 2018 or early 2019.” Carrying on the legacy of Waters and other postwar Chicago blues greats is the mission of current Chicago blues kingpin Buddy Guy, who once operated the late, lamented Checkerboard Lounge on a section of East 43rd Street renamed Muddy Waters Boulevard. Guy moved Downtown in 1989 with his Buddy Guy’s

singer-songwriter-guitarist, spent time at the house, but never lived there. But he quickly rattles off the names of blues stars who did. “James Cotton, Pinetop Perkins, Otis Spann and Little Walter all stayed there, and everyone from Paul Butterfield to Keith Richards went there,” Morganfield said. “I don’t care to have that house. What I care about is the house standing and representing Chicago as the real house of the blues. … Chicago needs to keep this man’s legacy alive.” Morganfield admitted that being the son of a blues immortal can be a double-edged sword from a career standpoint. “It’s both a curse and a blessing,” he said. “You have people who say, ‘He sounds like his dad, but he ain’t Muddy.’ Of course I’m not. But I have other people come up and tell me, ‘I had a lump in my throat because you remind me so much of your daddy.’ ” Others who want to walk in Waters’ footprints may visit the Chess Studios (www.bluesheaven.com/historic-chess-studios.html) at 2120 S.

Winding down at the end of the season It’s a wrap. Another school year complete – in the books. TGIF: Thank Goodness It’s Finished. Because I am tired. It happens every year. Let’s face it, being a parent can be taxing. Being a parent with kids in school can be exhausting. We start out strong in September – am I right? Lunch accounts are in the black. Healthy snacks line the shelves of the pantry and fridge. A dozen or more sharpened number two pencils are lined up in the homework station drawer; ditto that for extra erasers and pens in working order. We check the school’s parent website every Friday. Weekly progress reports are signed Sunday evening with ease, folded neatly and placed in the designated backpack pocket to ensure effortless retrieval Monday morning. Bedtime rituals are in place, as are bedtimes themselves. Weather-appropriate clothes are laundered and folded. A week’s worth of clean underwear and socks lie ready in dresser drawers. We start out strong. Then September morphs into October and that unfolds into November and later December and we realize this is no short-lived stint. It’s a grueling test of endurance and fortitude and we still have months to go before we sleep. And as those months unravel, one by one by one, so does the perfect life we intended back in Septem-

ber. Lunch accounts dwindle, as do healthy snack choices. When did chips (both potato and chocolate) become afterschool staples? By March, matching socks are practically out of the question, but that’s okay because no one matches socks anymore anyway. Not if you’re cool, at least. Shorts are worn yearround, even in the most wintery of climates. Tennis shoes sport holes and broken laces, but what mom in her right mind is going to invest in another pair at this point in the race? We’re nearing mile marker 25 for goodness sakes. Everyone knows a kid’s feet grow in the summer, so shoes purchased in April would be of no service come fall. We scour the house for a working pencil and rejoice when we find the bottom half of one pinched between the cushions of the couch. The eraser is missing (of course) but we find a nubbin in the junk drawer, previously known as the homework station drawer. Weekly progress reports lie crumpled and forgotten at the bottom of
a backpack. They are accompanied by candy wrappers, a tennis ball, discarded gym t-shirt, a lone sock and seven pencils. We should have thought to look there earlier in the day. Every Friday I get a notification from the school that I can take a peek at which assignments my kid is missing. I got an email a more than a month ago that midterm grades were available online. I’ve yet to check grades and I’ve stopped looking to see what assignments I’m supposed to harp on my kid about each week. I can’t bring myself to click on the link because my harping wore out sometime around late April. In the final weeks of the school year, when we are at our most vulnerable state, one thing is certain: there will be at least one gigantic school project requiring hours and hours of research and preparation and learning. It goes without saying that this is a group project. Group projects are every parent’s favorite because they require more planning than any kid is capable of because to them a Monday morning deadline sounds very far off until Sunday afternoon when things suddenly become imminent and the group has to find a way to get together somehow and can someone’s mom give someone a ride now so this project can get done, or at least started.
If you are the parent lucky enough to live in the home where the group decides to meet you also find yourself with the opportunity to provide them with pizza at 11:00 the night before the gigantic project is due. This year I drove him to school each morning and we used to try to get there with five or 10 minutes to spare. That was in September when the newness of the year filled us with optimism and honor roll hopefulness. In the last weeks we cut the time gap down to seconds. I turned into the school driveway and braked to a slow roll as he jumped out and dashed into the building. I was often the one running late because it was May and I was tired. Not sleepy tired, but tired as in ready for summer tired. Ready to be done with schedules and homework and really gigantic projects. I feel that way now, but it won’t last. Come next September I’ll be summer-energized and unapologetically optimistic about my upcoming school-year performance. It happens every year. Hopefully I’ve only two to go.

I never was a garage saler and the two times I had my own, 20 years apart, I vowed never again. Yet, for some unknown reason, estate sales are now beckoning me. Perhaps it’s because there is whole house full of stuff to peruse, and you get to house gawk at the same time, one of my favorite pastimes. The listings of local estate sales get emailed and posted on Facebook and I scroll through the photos to determine if there are any treasures that entice me. Luckily, most of the time, there’s not. But there was a sale recently at a very lovely home that intrigued me. I showed up early to get in line with the other estate sale addicts, usually

retired folks who have the luxury of being out shopping at 9 am on a weekday. Joining them is one of the perks I have of working from home. It also fascinates me that most of the people at estate sales are folks who are older than me.

Legends (www.buddyguy.com), now at 700 S. Wabash. While sweet home Chicago takes pride in its reputation as “the home of the blues,” with a lakefront festival that has drawn hundreds of thousands of music lovers yearly since 1984, the city also is a cornerstone of modern jazz. In fact, Chicago’s jazz fest predates its blues bash by a decade. King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton were early stars on the jazz scene, and the immortal Louis Armstrong further popularized the New Orleans sound
in Chicago in the 1920s. Later Benny Goodman and a host of fellow bigband leaders swung at ballrooms such as the elegant Trianon in the Woodlawn neighborhood and the Aragon in Uptown. Today the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (www.aacmchicago.org) guides Chicago jazz in adventurous new directions, and the Green Mill Cocktail Lounge (www.greenmilljazz.com), 4802 N. Broadway, builds on its Prohibition-era tradition.
looking for a bargain? I’ve yet to make any large purchases at these sales. I do occasionally come home with more glassware (that I don’t need) and books (that I don’t need). Yet I cannot stop. The other day I was driving home from a lunch meeting and I saw signs at the intersection pointing to an estate sale. So I turned, even though it was not my direction home. I kept following the signs that led me clear to the other side of town. (Estate Sale Company, kudos to you; your signs work.) When I got there, I joined the thong of cars parked along the road and wandered into the home. I strolled from room to room, admiring the wares and the property. I resisted temptation and left empty-handed. Then on my way home, I saw signs from a different purveyor pointing to their estate sale. I followed. I found. I parked. I entered. I perused. I resisted. I left. En route to my house, signs from a third estate sale company grabbed my attention. I laughed and I followed them too. Obviously a busy day for estate sales in my town. This one had pretty glasses and dishes and odds and ends that captured my fancy. I had my hands full as I wandered. And then I stopped
myself. There was not a thing I needed. I put the things back. I asked myself: Do I really need this ashtray? An ashtray! We don’t smoke and no one we know smokes and nobody I know has ashtrays anymore. But it was so pretty. It was heavy glass, round, a gorgeous deep red color and I thought it would be cool to burn incense in. As I type I wish I would have bought it. I came home with no purchases. I can’t stop myself though. If my hubby and I are out and about on the weekend and we come across an estate sale, I make him stop. I hope it’s a passing fad and I will lose the desire. So far that’s not happening. I look at some gorgeous furniture or whatnot and I say, “If we had an old home or a B&B or retreat center, this would be awesome.” But we don’t, so we don’t buy. That’s a good thing. I could fill up my basement with possibilities and when I kick the bucket, my own estate sale would be an eclectic mix. Perhaps it’s just the thrill of discovery. You never know what you will come across. So I have a hunch I will keep going. I just might come across another ashtray.

Bond set for man accused of hammer attack in Glendale Heights DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin and Glendale Heights Chief of Police Doug Flint announced last week that bond has been set for a man accused of attacking another man with a hammer, striking him at least twice in the head. Javier Garcia, 20, of West Chicago, appeared at a bond hearing,
Man arrested after threats against Glenbard West High School DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin and Glen Ellyn Chief of Police Philip Norton announced last week that a Glen Ellyn man has been charged with one count of Disorderly Conduct (Class 4 Felony) for allegedly posting threatening messages directed at Glenbard West High School. Timothy O’Dea, 20 of the 800 block of Glen Oak Avenue, was taken into custody at the Glen Ellyn Police Department. He was released a short time later after posting the necessary 10 percent of his $30,000 bond, or $3,000. On March 19, employees at Glenbard West High School located several threatening messages placed throughout the school campus. It is alleged in the complaint that at approximately 9 p.m. on March 18, O’Dea “knowingly transmitted a threat of violence, death or bodily harm at Glenbard West High School … directed at persons at a school, school function, or school event, whether or not school is in session.” Authorities at the school contacted the Glen Ellyn Police Department who conducted an investigation into the alleged threat. An investigation into the matter continues and anyone with information is asked to contact the Glen Ellyn Police Department at (630) 469-1187. “My office takes any threat made against a school extremely seriously and anyone found guilty of making any threat directed at a school will be held accountable,” Berlin said. O’Dea’s next court appearance is scheduled for July 5, 2018, in front of Judge John Kinsella. Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s guilt.
where Judge George Bakalis set bond at $750,000 with 10 percent to apply. Garcia has been charged with two counts of Aggravated Battery With a Deadly Weapon, a Class 3 Felony. It is alleged that on May 22, at approximately 2:07 p.m., Garcia and three other individuals went to a home on Windsor Drive in Glendale Heights armed with a large hammer. It is alleged that once Garcia arrived at the home, where a friend of the victim lived, he exited his vehicle and approached the victim and another man who were outside the home. It is further alleged that when Garcia was approximately five to ten feet away from the men, he threw the hammer at the victim, striking him in the head and rendering him unconscious. It is alleged that Garcia then retrieved the hammer, and again struck the victim multiple times with the hammer, at least once more in the head and once in the chest. It is further alleged that following the attack, Garcia got back in the vehicle and drove away. The
victim, who was airlifted to a hospital, suffered multiple fractures to his face and skull. He is presently in a comatose state. The Glendale Heights Police Department launched an investigation into the attack and a short time later, after hearing a radio broadcast of the vehicle description, the Bloomingdale Police stopped the car the defendant was riding in and brought all occupants to the Glendale Heights Police Department. “The allegations against Mr. Garcia are extremely serious and will not be tolerated,” Berlin said. “Hopefully the victim in this case will recover from the senseless and brutal attack allegedly inflicted upon him by Mr. Garcia.” Garcia’s next court appearance is scheduled for June 18, for arraignment in front of Judge George Bakalis. Members of the public are reminded that these complaints contain only charges and are not proof of the defendant’s guilt.
Health Department’s suicide hotline can save lives Suicide is something that can affect anyone, including the recent deaths of celebrities Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, to your family, friends and members of the community. The DuPage County Health Department has issued a reminder of the importance of suicide prevention and the services offered. Suicide is preventable and with the proper education, everyone can become more aware of the warning signs and how help may be provided to someone struggling with depression. A mental health crisis can be any situation where an individual is exhibiting extreme emotional disturbance or distress. Examples of mental health crises can include depression, trauma, eating disorders, substance abuse, self-injury and suicidal thoughts. If you, a friend or a family member is experiencing a mental health crisis, there are many resources available. The DuPage County Health Department offers a local Crisis Hotline (630) 627-1700, for anyone experiencing a variety of mental health crises, or callers who may be in need of other resources within the County. Trained counselors are a text message away. To reach the Crisis Text Line, text REACH to 741741. The
Crisis Text Line serves anyone in any type of crisis, and provides access to free, 24/7 support and information. In addition, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a network of 161 centers across the country that offers free and confidential emotional support to people in crisis or distress. The Health Department recognizes the need for more suicide prevention and joined the national network in 2012 to provide more crisis assistance to residents. The goals of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline are: easy access to assistance; reaching more people who are at risk; and ensuring a high level of quality service to people who are seeking help. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, or are feeling overwhelmed and alone, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800) 273-TALK or the Crisis Hotline (630) 627-1700 and take the first-step in working toward wellness.

In back-to-back procedures, Robert, 79, and Carol Zeller, 74, each had a biventricular defibrillator implanted on the same day at Elmhurst Hospital to treat a condition they both had. After Robert’s procedure but before Carol’s, hospital staff put their beds next to each other in such a way (as pictured), so they could see and embrace one another before Carol went into the operating room. It was a very touching moment, according to Dr. Casey. See story on page 29.

OUT OF SIGHT “Lingual braces” are somewhat like the “dark side of the moon” in that they are not visible to casual onlookers. Theby word “lingual”T.means “relating Jeffrey Boland to the tongue.” Lingual braces are Licensed Orthodontic Specialist fitted to the inner sides of the teeth, which, of course, face the tongue. Invented by Dr. Craven Kurz in 1976, lingual braces were developed with the intention of treating patients (including actors, television announcers, etc.) who needed to have their teeth straightened without drawing attention to the “tin grin” of metal braces, which could endanger their job status. This original form of “invisible braces,” which utilizes the brackets, wires, and elastics most often associated with traditional (buccal) braces, remains an option for those concerned about their looks. The best way to find out if lingual braces are right for you is to have a consultation appointment with an orthodontist. To schedule a 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. Available by appointment, we honor all kinds of insurance and charge zero interest on our financing. Straighter Smiles Are Our Specialty! P.S. Lingual braces tend to work a bit more slowly than traditional braces. 318139
Hospital rooms across the hall When both were transferred to the inpatient floor, they were in rooms across from each other. There was a prescribed four-hour post-procedure wait to begin walking. But soon after that, Annoreno said her mom and dad were on a frequent loop of visits between the two rooms, with one of the daughters at their side. In fact, both patients’ nurses had to go to Carol’s room because that’s where the Zellers were spending all their time. “Nurses are used to tending to their patients in their private hospital rooms,” said Dr. Casey. “In this case, it was understandable that they wanted to be together even though they were both post-operative patients assigned to their own private rooms.” “It was something to see them in a hospital room wearing the same gowns and slippers and the same white holder for their monitor,” said
daughter Kim. “Then on the next in his cowboy boots and she, look- I’m not tired all the time,” Carol said better too, from the way he breathes day, they were leaving the hospital ing as put together as ever.” following her procedure. It’s a won- and he seems to have more energy.” looking like the picture of health, he The Zellers’ improvement has “I definitely breathe better and derful thing. I can tell my husband is been a big relief to the daughters, too. “It’s like their chests suddenly have built-in paramedics.” Kim said. “It was sweet how the couple supported each other throughout this process,” said Dr. Casey. “Now they can continue, stabilized in their congestive heart failure and protected if something bad should happen.” To find out if you’re at risk for heart disease, visit eehealth.org/ heartaware or call 877-45-HEART to schedule a heart scan.
Robert and Carol Zeller seem to have taken to heart the ‘80s U2 song, “Two Hearts Beat as One.” In 2017, the Zellers, who have been a couple for 48 years, developed similar symptoms of congestive heart failure (CHF), a condition resulting from a weakened heart muscle. Both were experiencing shortness of breath and tired very easily. On March 21, they checked in to Elmhurst Hospital together to do something about it. After a series of cardiac tests, their doctor, John Cahill, MD, an independent cardiologist on the medical staff at Elmhurst Hospital, gave both a diagnosis of a condition is called dyssynchrony. It means the heart’s opposing walls contract at different times instead of together, as if your car’s spark plug timing was off – the vehicle would run, but not well. Dr. Cahill referred the Zellers to cardiac electrophysiologist Cash Casey, MD, another independent physician on the staff. Dr. Casey scheduled the Zellers to have the same procedure – implant of a biventricular defibrillator – on the same day, back-to-back. “This device serves three functions,” said Dr. Casey. “It can control the heart rate, synchronize the contractions of the left and right ventricles to improve the heart’s pumping ability and, if needed, serve as a defibrillator to shock the heart, saving the patient from sudden cardiac arrest.” On the day of the Zellers’ procedures, two of the couple’s daughters were on hand: Kim Annoreno and Sherrilynn Smith. When 79-yearold Robert’s 90-minute procedure was over, he was wheeled out of the post-procedure room. He was awake enough to say “Hi” when the gurney detoured to where Carol, 74, waited her turn on a gurney in the holding area. The staff put the beds next to each other, but in opposite directions, so they could see and embrace each other before Carol went into the operating room. It was a very touching moment, according to Dr. Casey.

Chicago developer buys OfficeMax HQ, plans overhaul The suburban developer Franklin Partners is taking on the vacant former OfficeMax headquarters in Naperville with a plan to revamp the 354,000-square-foot office building at 263 Shuman Blvd. and lease it to a slew of tenants. The sale comes three years after OfficeMax moved out and 10 months after the building’s previous owner gave up the property after failing to find a new tenant or a way to pay off a $49 million loan on the building. The architecture firm of Wright Heerema has been retained to refresh the building, which will include a redesigned lobby, upgraded dining options, a new fitness center, co-working lounges and a conference center, among other amenities. Construction is set to begin later this year with an eye on being ready for tenants in 2019.

Dining al Fresco I
f you ruled out our dining outdoors because the weather looks threatening, remember that al fresco dining can still be enjoyable at Silverado Grill, where the outdoor patio area is completely under cover, including an awning. So a few sprinkles of rain or a cloudy sky will not send diners dashing indoors for cover, carrying plates of food. Along with its ample parking, al fresco dining makes Silverado a perfect place to gather with friends and family during the summer. The entire menu — from those tasty hand-carved steaks, juicy burgers, gourmet salads, and cold beer — is available to outdoor enthusiasts. All steaks are carved on premises. All top sirloin cuts, strip cuts and filet cuts can be increased to the size the diner prefers. So if the 11-ounce top sirloin just doesn’t seem right to you, ask for a 16-oz. cut. It will be done on the spot. Steaks are hand-cut daily, so whatever you order, you know it will be fresh. Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, Saturday 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Reservations are recommended, especially on the weekend. Call (630) 833-1602.

Willowbrook baseball team savors strong finish
Warriors started summer play last week; Mintz, Pelsor, Meyer named all-conference
By Mike Miazga
When the time was right, the Willowbrook baseball team hit the overdrive button. The Warriors made it all the way to a Class 4A sectional title game this season and finished with a 20-15 overall record. “We did well,” said Willowbrook coach Vic Wisner. “We really found our stride with three or four weeks left. We played really good baseball. It took us awhile. We lost a bunch
(Continued from page 26) Bison were fifth in the 1,600 relay with a time of 4:28.51 and took second in the 3,200 relay in 10:30.63. Krebasch was third in the high jump at 5-1. Murillo was fifth at 4-9. Natalie Szocik won the JV highjump title with a mark of 4-9. Matuszewski was fifth in the long jump in 15-0 1/4. Stephany Padilla was seventh at 14-0 1/2. Yesina Cortez won the JV long jump at 14-8 1/2. Sarah Mason was second in the triple jump at 33-6, while Krebasch was fourth at 31-3 1/2. Emily Trzmielewski won the JV triple jump in 28-5 1/2. Trzmielewski won the pole vault title at 7-0. Adelina Vasakova-Sadiku won the JV pole vault at 6-1. Jamie Minard was third in the discus at 87-3, while Alizea Paz was fourth at 84-2.

of leaders from last year’s team and it took us a little bit to find out who we were. We had some leaders step up and when they did, things came around.” Wisner said another contributing factor in the team’s development this season was the weather. “Our schedule was compressed,” he said. “At one point we played games three weeks in a row because of the weather. You need the practice time. You need it to be steady. At the end of the year when we started practicing more regularly we made those strides that we needed to make. This spring any coach would say the weather was not helpful to anybody.” Ryan Mintz, Sam Pelsor and Dax Meyer were named to the all-West Suburban Conference Gold Division team for the Warriors. “It was a little bit of everything for us at the end,” said Wisner. “We put the ball in play and we had a better understanding of making productive outs. Dax stepped up as a pitcher for us. When he went on the mound we felt very comfortable. We played well at the end. We beat a really good Hinsdale Central team that shared the Silver Division conference title with Downers Grove North and we beat them late as well. It was nice to see the kids have that success. They started to see evidence that their hard work was paying off.” Wisner also lauded the recent play of Marshall McDonnell who moved from catcher to third base in the latter stages of the season. “Our other catchers Dan Gusel and Marshall were hammering the baseball at the end of the year and we needed to get both of them in the lineup,” the coach noted. Also playing well at the end was right fielder Trevor Jaloszynski. “I think Trevor hit .450 the last three weeks of the season and came in and closed a bunch of games for us on the mound,” said Wisner. “He closed the regional championship game for us.” Wisner said Willowbrook will lose six seniors, including two everyday players. “We still have Ryan Mintz,
We really found our stride with three or four weeks left. We played really good baseball.”
– Vic Wisner, Willowbrook coach
Jack Nilles, Joey Guthrie, Jack Hines and Dax are coming back,” he said. “We are going to be very deep on the mound. Another guy who is throwing well is Ethan Pieniazek. He had three saves in 19 innings pitched out of the bullpen. He’s back as well. We will have a very complete pitching staff.” Willowbrook opened summer league action last week. The Warriors split two games with Downers Grove North and swept York in a doubleheader to start out 3-1. “We lost the sectional championship game and then came back the next Tuesday and started summer,” said Wisner. “That’s how highschool baseball is. There is not a lot of chances to mourn a loss. You start again.” Wisner noted Willowbrook is only playing summer league games on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. “That gives our guys an opportunity to play with their travel teams and also to take care of their arms,” he said. “Summer for us is important to get that camaraderie going with a new group and take a look at the team atmosphere. When we have a really good summer we generally have a really good spring the next year. Last summer we were around .500 and this year we were around .500 until we got hot at the end. Summer is all about building that team component and togetherness. It’s very important.”
part of the season. “We have shown glimpses of defense recently, but need to be more consistent,” he said prior to the playoffs starting. “If we play well on the defensive end we will be tough to beat.” The coach also was pleased with the development on the attacking side of the net. “Our offense has improved a lot this year and has carried
us at times,” Grant said. Addison Trail also was aided by the return of Pudlo to the lineup. “The return of Michael Pudlo from a dislocated and broken finger has given us a lift,” said Grant. Grant also noted Addison Trail had seven seniors in their third years on varsity. “They have all played and won big games before.”

House sends Tobacco 21 measure to governor’s desk ILLINOIS NEWS NETWORK
Legislation to raise the purchasing age of tobacco products including cigarettes to 21 in Illinois passed the Illinois House last week and now goes to Gov. Bruce Rauner for his signature or a veto. The House approved the Tobacco 21 initiative on a largely party line vote, 61-49, on the second to last day of the regular session. The Senate previously passed the bill, which raises the age for consumers to buy tobacco products from 18 to 21, in April. The American Lung Association in Illinois supported the increased age limit. “We hope that Tobacco 21 becomes the norm not just in Illinois, but across the nation,” Kathy Drea, vice president of advocacy for the ALA, said in a statement. “While smoking is on the decline in Illinois,
teen tobacco use is at an alarming 32.8 percent. Because of heavy advertising, easy access, concealable products, and fruit and candy flavors, teen tobacco use is a rising concern.” If the measure is signed by Rauner, Illinois would join five other states—California, Hawaii, Maine, New Jersey and Oregon—in raising the tobacco purchasing age to 21. The House currently does not have enough votes to override a veto. Fourteen Illinois cities and counties, including Evanston and Peoria, approved their own ordinances raising the purchase age to 21. Retailers expressed concern that the legislation was more about discouraging cigarette sales than preventing teenage smoking. Border retailers also said they were worried about losing business to competitors across state lines.
Karting race fundraiser for DuPagePads June 24
Continental Motors of Naperville and DuPagePads have teamed up again for the eighth annual four-hour karting enduro for charity. Up to 15 teams will compete in raising funds, with the goal of raising $95,000 for DuPagePads to assist families and individuals who are homeless. This year’s race will take place on Sunday, June 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Autobahn Country Club in Joliet. Over the past 7 years this event has raised $595,000, all going toward housing programs and support services for those who are homeless. Patrick Gniadek has participated in this unique fundraiser every year since the event started. He shares, “it’s given me a chance to support a charity that directly helps people right in my own hometown. I also love the way DuPagePads helps people by offering assistance, training and housing that leads to permanent

solutions. However, I’m not going to lie, we all have an absolute blast with all aspects of the karting event. Now the event has become a great reason to connect with old friends and enjoy laps of pretend race-car driving.” Space is limited to 15 participating teams and only a few spots remain. Participants are asked to raise a minimum of $3,000 per team to help achieve the $95,000 goal. Racing advantages will be given to top fundraising teams. “The teams are competitive on the course, but even more so in their fundraising for DuPagePads. At the end of the race day, everyone will walk away a little tired, but more importantly, proud of what their efforts have accomplished for this organization,” said Joel Weinberger, DuPagePads board Adviser.

Video games may soon join scholastic bowl, football, and bass fishing ILLINOIS NEWS NETWORK

The organization that manages everything from football and volleyball to bass fishing and scholastic bowl at Illinois’ high schools could soon add video games to its list. A number of Illinois high schools already have e-sports teams. Those are teams that play video games competitively. E-sports across the globe was worth $1.5 billion last year. Craig Anderson with the Illinois High School Association, which oversees high school sports and activities in Illinois, said e-sports are becoming very popular, almost popular enough to see a high school sea-
son. “I think we have more than the number of schools that have identified on a list,” Anderson said. “But, to date, we think we have about 25 schools that have indicated to us that they have a team that is competing.” It will take time for e-sports to become an official IHSA activity. Anderson said IHSA recently hosted its first lacrosse state championship after years of exploring the sport. Although some people may not consider video games a sport, Anderson said there’s always value in teamwork and giving young people a sense of pride in anything they do.
