City’s presentation on Downtown Draft Plan packs the house

ELMHURST — At a packedhouse public presentation in the City Council chambers at City Hall on Jan. 7, city officials presented the new Downtown Draft Plan created by the consulting firm of Housel Levi-

tioned were building heights, direction of traffic on York Street and the use of bicycles. The plan, if approved, would require any ground floor space located within the downtown with a vacant storefront to have a decorative window display in place until the commercial space is occupied. “Property owners are encouraged to partner with a local government or community service organization to create a display.” The proposed regulations would permit the affixing

of decals to the windows of vacant spaces that would mimic an occupied three-dimensional storefront. Covering vacant storefronts with plain paper, butcher paper, newspapers, soap tarp, plastic sheets or unpainted plywood would be prohibited. “The previously-mentioned items may be acceptable if they are used as a background in a decorative display.” The consultant Housel Levigne recommended establishing new building heights within each downtown district, which keep with the desired character of that district. The recommendations include: • Within the Downtown Core District (the businesses roughly in the area of York and Addison Sts.), it is recommended that structures of up to six stories be permitted by right and 10 stories with City approval or by special use. • Within the Downtown Outer Core District (businesses elsewhere in downtown), it is recommended to permit structures of up to four stories to be built by right and up to eight stories, when not adjacent to singlefamily homes. • Within the Downtown Transition Neighborhood District (residences in downtown), it is recommended to permit structures of up to three stories allowed by right and up to four stories with City approval or by special use. In past years, there have been periodic discussions about the possibility of making York St. have two-way traffic instead of the current one-way traffic in downtown. But Nick Davis of Housel Levigne said he did not see a need to make a change at this time. As far as bicycle traffic, the

consultant said there are missing elements in parts of downtown. On the ever-present topic of vehicle parking, Davis noted that some people say there is “never enough parking.” People may not be able to park directly in front of a particular store, he said, but usually a spot can be found within a two- to threeminute walk of their destination.

gne. According to Mike Kopp, assistant city manager, the City had received a record number of emails from residents about the issue. Before a final vote by aldermen, other open house events will be held including a yetto-be-scheduled public hearing before the Zoning and Planning Commission (ZPC). One of many suggestions in the 146-page draft document was the requirement of decorative storefront windows for vacant buildings. Also men-

Elmhurst Chamber inducts Pechanio into Civic Hall of Fame Long-time volunteer organizer to be honored at Annual Awards gala

Day Parade Committee CoChair.

By Dee Longfellow For The Elmhurst Independent

L

ong-time Elmhurst businessman, civic leader and community volunteer Ralph O. Pechanio will be honored as the 2015 inductee into the exclusive Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce & Industry Civic Hall of Fame, becoming its 24th member. He will be honored at the Chamber’s 97th Annual Awards Gala and Talent Showcase held at the Clarion Inn’s Waterford Banquet & Conference & Center on Friday, January 29, from 6 to 9:30 p.m. An active Chamber member for some 45 years, Pechanio has served three Board terms as an elected Director (1980-82, 1987-89 and 1990-92), including tenures as 1992 Chair (then President) and as Treasurer in 1981 and 1990. He has been appointed to a third term as Treasurer for 2016. “When I first accepted my position at Elmhurst Federal Savings & Loan [in September of 1970], Fred Messerschmidt was president of the bank at that time and he informed me that the job was ‘about more than paper-pushing,’” Ralph told the Independent in an exclusive interview. “He made it crystal clear that being involved in the Chamber of Commerce and other community groups was vital to the bank.” And get involved, he did! A green-coated Chamber Ambassador since 1992, Pechanio is a two-time recipient of the Ambassador of the Year award (2011 and 1993). He

also served as Treasurer of the Chamber beginning in 1980, a position he held before going through the chairs to become Chairman of the Board. Messerschmidt, Dave Plummer and others at Elmhurst Federal served as Board Chair prior to Ralph. Besides his presence on the Board of Directors, Pechanio has served on various business and civic committees. In 1993, he retired from banking but continued his community service, joining Elmhurst Kiwanis and chairing the Veterans Memorial Commission for the City of Elmhurst. “I was asked to help raise funds for the Veterans Memorial – the one we know now,” he said. “We got it established but before the City would grant us any dollars, we needed the Commission and a commitment to stay involved. Bill Ralston said he wanted me to chair the Commission and if you knew Bill, he was hard to turn down.” He said it had been a rewarding experience, especially working with Elmhurst’s may-

ors, city managers and other City staff. “I especially enjoyed the years working with [former Mayor] Tom Marcucci and [former City Manager] Tom Borchert,” he added. “But I’ve enjoyed everyone over the years including Mayor Morley and Jim Grabowski [the current mayor and city manager].” He was also involved in setting up the Elmhurst Economic Development Corporation at its inception. Pechanio was able to bring $5000 from Elmhurst Federal, because the EEDC was privately funded at first. At that time, he worked closely with Jim Dinkle and Marlene Tegmeyer, then later Gary Skoog. Then the EEDC went from a private to a public organization. “I served on the [EEDC] Board and then as Treasurer,” he said. “It seems like everywhere I serve, I’m the Treasurer!” Memorial Day – A source of pride Asked what he’s most proud of, Pechanio said it was getting the Memorial Day Parade up and running properly after it “fell into disrepair.” At one time, however, it was the 4th of July Parade that was “THE” parade in Elmhurst, he said. “The College used to bring in various Drum and Bugle Corps every summer to perform and those groups marched in the [4th of July] parade, at that time run by the Elmhurst Jaycees,” he said. “But then the college gave that up so the Jaycees were abandoned a bit in terms of entries in the parade. “I started to work with the veterans on the Memorial Day parade, again with Bill Ralston – he and Charlotte kept that parade going for a number of years. In 1992, I was asked

to coordinate the drivers, so I contacted Larry Roesch and got some great cars donated for the parade. That was a real plus. We continued work with Roesch through 1996.” When the Ralstons reached a certain time in their lives, they had to give it up (both are now deceased), so Ralph talked to then-Chamber of Commerce executive A. J. “Toche” Terrones and asked if the Chamber would partner with the veterans on the parade. “Of course, he did, then when Toche died, Jim Dinkle was the interim executive, who worked with us until John Quigley was hired,” he said. “Now John cochairs the committee with me. I do the organizing, but John does the ‘paper’ part – the marketing, press releases, and all those things.” Pechanio affirmed Memorial Day is always his proudest day in the City of Elmhurst. “It’s the one day when the whole community comes together.” On to the Civic Hall of fame The Civic Hall of Fame was established in 1992 as one of Pechanio’s initiatives during his term as Chamber Board President to recognize women and men who make major contributions to the Elmhurst community. “Yes, I handed the very first plaque to Joe Newton, the firstever inductee,” he said. And how does he feel about it? “It is indeed an honor to become a member of the Civic Hall of Fame,” Pechanio said. “It’s quite a list to join. I can only hope to continue to do the same things and live up to it.” “Ralph is the epitome of what it means to be a selfless volunteer,” stated Quigley, who serves as Pechanio’s Memorial

More about Ralph Pechanio Pechanio received the Elmhurst Jaycees’ Distinguished Service Award recipient in 2001, ECCI’s Good Works Award in 2009 and Elmhurst College Bluejay Backers’ Community Service Award in 2014. His community banking career included 23 years at the former Elmhurst Federal Savings Bank (1970-93) as a Controller, Vice President and Treasurer, and then Chief Financial Officer. Pechanio graduated from DePaul University in 1964 with a Bachelor of Science with a major in accounting and then served in the U.S. Army (196567). He and his wife, Georgette, have resided in Elmhurst since their marriage in 1969. (They are the parents of Matthew and Polly. Polly and her husband Tom Williams are the parents of Dustin, Polena and Ralph Williams.)

A lesson in forgiveness – and a Catholic School upbringing By Wayne Hoffman Lexington Square resident

M

ost high school teachers realize that a boy’s sophomore year can be difficult. Now that they made it through freshman year, they think they know the ropes. WRONG! They just have more brain cramps. Here’s the complete story of how I was expelled from St. Gregory High School in Chicago. Catholic schools had holidays because of so-called holy days, which public schools did not. On one “Holy” day off, five of us decided to check out nearby Pierce Elementary School, walking right in while classes were in session, much to the surprise of a hall guard who ran down toward us. We immediately zipped out, having a good laugh. The next day, the hall guard and the school principal came to St. Gregory and were able to identify all of us

culprits. Then-principal Sister Josayphus summoned us to the office and immediately expelled us. This meant we would have to attend Senn High School, a very large public school with an enrollment of about 2000 – St. Gregory had about 500 -- not to mention quite a distance from my home on Catalpa Street. This shook me up so much, I could not even tell my parents. I remember thinking my hopes and plans for high school, including writing for the school newspaper, were going up in smoke. I was as scared as a nearsighted cat in a dog pound! That night I went back to the Sisters’ convent near the school, rang the bell and asked to see the principal. On a bended knee (really!), I begged Sister Josayphus to take me back, promising to amend my ways and be a model student. (I was probably crying, too.) God bless her, she forgave me and took me back. The other four boys

did not return to St. Gregory and were transferred to Senn. Looking back at this incident makes me appreciate our teachers, the Sisters of Charity, so very much. Talk about charity! The fork in the road that would have taken me to Senn would have changed my life completely. By forgiving me, Sister Josayphus gave me a new lease on life and I was ever after a “good boy.” Well, for the most part… Were it not for a principal’s forgiveness, I would have missed the following: a splendid senior year at St. Gregory; a Mayor Daley scholarship to DePaul University; meeting my future wife Thomasine at DePaul; marrying her after our graduation in 1954; two years in the army stationed in Hawaii while she taught at Pearl Harbor; our four outstanding children and their spouses; 61 happy years of marriage (and still counting); 56 years in a home in Elmhurst; and now living happily in Lexington Square -- still in Elmhurst. What a blessing for

Letters to the Editor Local pastor’s dream: all play on same team A week or so ago, I read that there was concern about putting a basketball court in a Butterfield Road park. The concern was that teens from nearby Hillside would want to use it, and those teens are apt to be black. In the years I have lived in Elmhurst, I know the city is pretty white. I also know that I very seldom have heard the race issue mentioned. It may be a good thing that this concern has come out in the open. I share the views recently published by Robert Honig. Does Hillside have a problem with having enough places to play basketball? I know I have seen black teens playing in at least one court in Elmhurst, so it would not be a new thing if they wanted to play in another. I am a retired Episcopal priest, so I think and talk now and again about Jesus bringing

a new kind of world, a world in which God reigns. If I were there at the Butterfield Park, I would try to welcome blacks to play and I would hope they would play against white players. And I have a dream: I would say Jesus’ world has come when whites and blacks play on the same teams. Rev. Don Judson, asst. Church of Our Saviour

First responders in Elmhurst invited to VFW’s ‘Gyros for Heroes’ In May 2012 the Villa Park VFW Post 2801 suffered a catastrophic fire. While thankfully no one was seriously injured, the damage to our Post Home was extensive and we were closed for a year.   The past three years have seen us reopen with an almost completely renovated and rebuilt Home.  The only thing

left for us to do is to rebuild our main kitchen and replace the outmoded and damaged equipment that the insurance did not cover. To this end, we will have a gyros for Heroes event on Saturday, Jan. 16, beginning at 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. We will have a gyros sandwich for $6.  First Responders from Villa Park and Elmhurst are invited to receive a free gyros.   To further help our local First Responders, the Post has pledged to donate $1 from each fish dinner we sell at the Post’s weekly Fish Fry toward the cost of the specialized gear they need to help keep them safe while they serve the public. Even more than $1 will be donated during Lent (Feb. 12-Mar. 25). The VFW Fish Fry and More runs every Friday from 5:30 – 8 p.m. at the Post Home, located at 39 E. St. Charles Rd, at the corner of Ardmore Ave & St. Charles Rd in Villa. Thomas G. Forbes Villa Park VFW Post 2801

an act of forgiveness! There was another act of forgiveness in my junior year. In April of 1949, about 20 of us St. Gregory boys decided to walk off the playground at lunchtime, catch the streetcar on Clark Street and go to opening day at the Cubs. We had very little money so we just walked around the park until we found an open door, rushed in and scattered to watch the game. The next day the principal herded us into an empty classroom for punishment --

writing the names of baseball players from A to Z. Someone realized the Sisters would not know who was a player, so we quickly wrote names for each letter in the alphabet and rushed off to baseball practice. Forgiveness is a gift. This story is about “forgive, but not forget.” Ed. note: This article is being reprinted with permission from SeeLEXions, the literary journal written by and for the residents of Lexington Square of Elmhurst.

New year, new resolutions I t’s a new year – a time when many of us consider changing more than our calendars. It’s time to get trim around the midsection. Redecorate the bedroom. Read more. Complain less. Join the gym. Clean out the junk drawer. Drink more water and less chardonnay. Take the planking challenge. Learn a new language. Grow our hair out. Get a haircut. Get a promotion. Get a job. Be kinder, less judgmental and less critical of everyone – including ourselves. It’s time to make a resolute resolution to fix, firm and duct tape all the things in our lives that are chipped, chubby or otherwise crumbling and non-functional. The task could be perceived as overwhelming – fixing all the things that need fixing, because there is a lot that can be fixed. At least based on the view from my cracked window. But I’ve always been energized by a good challenge and approach the changing of the calendar with the enthusiasm and vigor of Richard Simmons in a 80s workout video (but without the sequins). I’m one of those annoying people who enjoys coming up with goals for self-improvement, personal growth and poundage loss. I type them up and put them in a folder aptly named, “goals.” Each year at this time I take a peek to

check my progress over the last twelve months. And then I write new goals, which are often similar to the old goals that I never quite met the year before – or the year before that. I enjoy coming up with goals; I never claimed I had the aptitude for achieving them. A lesser person might find this discouraging. Not me! I am optimistic about my goalsetting and maybe even someday goal-completing capabilities. So what if I’ve been losing the same 10 pounds since the last century? At least I’m goaldriven and goal-oriented. That should count for something. I suppose it does, just not on the bathroom scale. As with most things in life, my husband and I have differing opinions about resolutions. I adopt them; he ignores them. In his eyes, resolutions are a waste of time. He doesn’t need no stinking resolution to get the job done. It’s infuriating. Take the weight thing. I can

York Commons floodwater detention plan delayed again By Dan McLeister
 For The Elmhurst Independent

ELMHURST — At a January 4th meeting of the Elmhurst City Council, aldermen once again did not vote on the York Commons floodwater detention plan because the topic was added to the agenda on the day of the meeting. Open meetings rules do not allow a vote to be taken on the same day. At a December 21st meeting, aldermen had voted 11-0 that the automatic shut-off valve requirement with an estimated cost of about $100,000 be taken out of a proposed intergovernmental agreement with the Elmhurst Park District. Absent from the meeting were Aldermen Marti Deuter (1st Ward), Dannee Polomsky (3rd Ward), and Noel Talluto (4th Ward). Ald. Jim Kennedy (6th Ward), chairman of the Public Works and Buildings Committee, called for a Committee of the Whole (COW) meeting on January 11 to discuss the York Commons situation with consultant Christopher Burke. That meeting was scheduled to be held before the next regular City Committee meetings. Kennedy said the City could invite V3 Engineering, which is a consultant to the Park District. Both consultants indicated previously that a shut off valve was not needed. Kennedy said he was against spending any money unnecessarily. At the December 21st meet-

ing, Ald. Pat Wagner (6th Ward) stated the Park District’s requirement for the shut off valve “is a complete act of spite.” “We can’t be treated like this,” he said. “I have never seen anything like this.” Scott Levin (5th Ward), who noted it had been a “long road of about two years working with the Park District,” stated that the situation “did not ring true.” “I do not understand why the Park District requires it,” he said. “We want to set a tone since there are potentially four other projects which could be done with the Park District,” Bob Dunn, (2nd Ward) pointed out. The York Commons plan was also scheduled to be discussed at the next City Council meeting on January 19. Mark Mulliner (7th Ward) served as Mayor Pro Tem in the absence of Mayor Steve Morley at the January 4th meeting. When Talluto asked what aldermen would be voting on at that time, Mulliner said it was either to affirm the aldermen’s decision of December 21 or to put the requirement for the shut-off valve back in. “This is a hiccup we will get through,” Mulliner said. “We should not go back and forth.” Jim Rogers, executive director of the Elmhurst Park District, attended the January 4th meeting of City Council. After the meeting, Rogers told The Independent he did not have any comment at this time.

Nearly a third of adult orthodontic patients nationwide have received treatment as youngsters, but their teeth have since shifted because bydidJeffrey T.toBoland they not continue wear a postLicensed Orthodontic Specialist treatment retainer. This statistic clearly demonstrates the importance of wearing a retainer at the end of treatment. Once braces are removed, the “retention phase” begins and lasts for a minimum of 24 months. During this time, patients must commit to wearing a removable retainer that will keep his or her teeth in their desired positions. In some cases, it may be recommended that adult patients, in particular, wear their retainers at night indefinitely. An alternative to this involves permanently attaching small wires to the back of the teeth to hold them in place. The importance of wearing a retainer after braces cannot be overstated. Otherwise you may find that several years after your braces come off, you begin to have orthodontic problems again. The confidence you feel when you smile is worth all the effort you put in to your continued retainer use. To schedule a free orthodontic consultation, please call our office. Our office hours are by appointment. Straighter Smiles Are Our Specialty!

said, “Not to make any resolutions.” When I heard his response, I gave a silent cheer. Because when you think about it resolving not to resolve could be considered a resolution in itself. I’m choosing to label it as such and therefore have already met one of my goals for the year. But don’t tell my husband I said so. He doesn’t believe in resolutions.

ELMHURST — Area artists, members of the Elmhurst Artists’ Guild, are exhibiting their recent works and competing for prizes in the Guild’s Winter Member Show being held in the EAG gallery from January 17 through February 26. The gallery is located at the Elmhurst Art Museum, 150 S. Cottage Hill Ave., Elmhurst. An opening reception, free and open to the public, is scheduled in the gallery, on Friday, January 22, from 7 to 9 SUSAN pm. More than JANSSEN 50 entries, displaying greatly varying styles, form and media, are on exhibit. Judging the show’s entries is performed by an outside Chicago-area artist or gallery owner. Prizes are awarded during the reception. For the member shows, each member can enter one piece not previously shown in the EAG gallery. Included in this show’s entries is a piece entitled “Jane on the Heath,” an oil on panel by local artist Susan Janssen, who uses brush as well as palette knife. “The inspiration for this painting is Jane Eyre,” she said. “I’ve always admired the character’s resilience. If she were a real person, I’d imagine she could look you square in the eye.” Susan has taken studio art classes ever since graduating college. Her painting “Leaving the Borghese” is the cover art for Daniel Burns’ novel, Recalled to Life. Most of the items entered into the show are for sale, and a portion of the proceeds benefits the Guild and the Elmhurst Art Museum. Operated by the Elmhurst Artists’ Guild, the EAG gallery features original contemporary artworks of its members. Exhibits are partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council.

ELMHURST — Beer has a way of bringing people together like no other beverage can. From corner taverns in the neighborhoods of Chicago to the shiny new brew pubs emerging throughout the area today—beer has always been an integral part of the city’s culture and history. The Elmhurst Historical Museum sheds light on many of the interesting and little-known aspects of beer’s impact in the current exhibit, “Beer Chicago: The Refreshing History.” The exhibit is open through February 14, 2016 at the Museum, located at 120 E. Park Ave. “Beer Chicago” taps into the cultural and historical connections to a beverage that has risen from humble roots as the drink of the working man to the revered libation of craft beer geeks everywhere. Through photographs, artifacts, beer memorabilia, and interactive displays, the exhibition offers insight into Chicago’s many connections to beer, from Prohibition and politics to the Great Chicago Beer Riot and more. A highlight of the “Beer Chicago” exhibit is an interactive “bar” featuring a reallife bartender (who also happens to be a Northwestern University history professor) who encourages patrons to step up and choose from three taps to find out more about Chicago beer history. Before the exhibit closes on February 14,, the Museum is offering the following programs:

Café Amano named A.J. ‘Toche’ Terrones Business of the Year ELMHURST — Café Amano will receive the A.J. “Toche” Terrones Business of the Year Award for 2015 at the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s 97th Annual Awards Gala held at the Waterford Banquet & Conference Center on Friday, January 29, starting at 6 p.m. according to Chamber President and CEO John R. Quigley. “Café Amano is a story about how two individuals transformed their unique tastes into a rousinglysuccessful restaurant that in just the past decade has developed into an anchor attraction in downtown Elmhurst,” said Quigley. A Chamber member since 2005, Café Amano owned and operated by the team of Chef Marco Conte and Chris DePodesta, whose travels throughout Europe and around the world defined and continue to refine the restaurant’s menu and catering cuisine. The award presentation will be made by Outgoing Chairman of the

Board of Directors Dee Longfellow of the Elmhurst Independent and Quigley. The traveling trophy of imported 24% German lead crystal atop a mahogany wood base will be displayed at Café Amano’s downtown Elmhurst location until the Chamber’s 2017 Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner, while an award plaque with a nameplate listing Café Amano is on permanent display at the Chamber office.   Joining in the award presentation will be representatives of West Suburban Office Products, the 2014 Business of the Year recipient.  West Suburban Office Products will receive an acrylic Business of the Year plaque to put on display at its main branch. More about Café Amano Café Amano opened in downtown Elmhurst in February of 2005 on the south side of the railroad tracks at the corner of York Street and Park Avenue. Originally conceived as a French/Italian inspired coffee,

wine and dessert bar, Café Amano responded to patron demands and expanded to a full-service concept after only six months of operation. In November of 2014, Café Amano relocated to 166 East Schiller Street and has succeeded in a location where multiple restaurants have failed. The site includes a large kitchen operation to better accommodate catering, sitdown bar area, quaint dining room and even an on-premise banquet room. Having expanded its client base to include catering and special events, Café Amano now ranks as a preferred caterer at the Elmhurst Park District’s Wilder Mansion, Elmhurst Art Museum and Forest Preserve of DuPage County’s Peabody Estate at Mayslake in Oak Brook. Café Amano has been featured on ABC-TV Channel 7’s 190 NORTH weekly show and in the pages of West Suburban Living, Suburban Life and Chicago magazines. In

2006, the Daily Herald newspaper recognized Café Amano among its top-10 new suburban restaurants. More about the Business of the Year award The annual award, which features a traveling trophy and permanent plaque, is named in memory of A.J. “Toche” Terrones, who served as Chamber President for nearly a decade until his death in July of 1999.   Other Business of the Year honorees are Community Bank of Elmhurst (2013 and 1999), York Furrier (2012), Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare (2011), OEC Business Interiors (2010), Harris Elmhurst (2009), Diplomat West (2008), Suburban Bank & Trust Co. (2007), Larry Roesch Chrysler Jeep Dodge (2006), York Theatre (2005), Synergistic Networks, Inc. (2004), Silverado Grill (2003), Great American Exteriors (2002), Cardinal Cartridge, Inc. (2001) and Unique Travel Service, Ltd. (2000).

Remembering Marshall Field’s

LOMBARD — The DuPage Senior Citizens Council (DSCC) has been awarded a $24,500 grant from the Alfred Bersted Foundation, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee, officials said last week. This grant will help DSCC purchase new computer technology allowing compliance with new regulations.     “The generous support of the Alfred Bersted Foundation will help us replace our old, outdated computers that run slowly and are unable to run new or updated software,” said DSCC Executive Director Marylin Krolak.  “By supporting the purchase of new computer technology, the Foundation is helping DSCC increase our efficiency, increase our capacity, and better serve DuPage County seniors in need.” FREE

IC Catholic Prep girls basketball team readying for second half of season Knights receiving contributions from many sources By Mike Miazga Correspondent

ELMHURST — IC Catholic Prep girls basketball coach Kelsey James saw some things she liked as her team closed out the 2015 portion of its schedule. The Knights went 2-2 at the Oswego East tournament over the holiday break. “We played against bigger schools,” she said. “We played Class 3A and 4A teams and were competitive. The girls figured out what it takes to win as a team.” James also identified things the team can improve upon. “There are still things we need to work out,” she said. “Our offense is improving each game and defensively we’ve changed things up a little and have added a trapping zone. They like that. We’re trying to be more aggressive and that has benefitted us as well.” James cited recent strong play from the likes of Tess Reardon, Sophie Zanoni and Georgia Mahnke. Reardon is a junior, while Zanoni and Mahnke are

sophomores. “Tess is usually that inspiration we need,” said James. “She does the dirty work and she does it because she knows it benefits the team. Georgia added an outside shot. She’s beating people in the post and then stepping out and making a couple 3s. That’s helped us. Sophie is doing everything we need her to do. She’s handling the ball and playing good defense. She works hard. It’s very rare when she comes out.” Anjella Farmer and Claire Gibler continue to be key offensive threats for the Knights. Farmer is a senior, while Gibler is a sophomore. “Anjella and Claire get their points most games,” said James. “It helps when others are contributing and we’ve been seeing that.” After the holiday break the Knights were 8-8 overall. IC Catholic Prep returns to action Friday against town neighbor Timothy Christian in a Metro Suburban Conference crossover game. “The girls have done a nice job adjusting to what I’ve asked them to do,” said James. “They are excited to get playing again and show off what they’ve been working on the last few weeks.”

Timothy Christian girls basketball team visits New Mexico for ‘Renew’ term Trojans return to action this week after long break By Mike Miazga Correspondent

ELMHURST — The Timothy Christian girls basketball team started the New Year on the road. In New Mexico. The Trojans were in New Mexico as part of the school’s second annual “Renew” term, which is held between the first and second semesters. Last year, the Timothy Christian boys team traveled to California for its term.

“It was a wonderful teambonding trip,” said Trojans coach Michele Strube. “We did some service projects and had a lot of time to spend together. We talked about a lot of things like players’ roles on the team. It was a really good week and I think we are going to be stronger the rest of the year after what we did during the week.” Timothy traveled to Glorieta, N.M., which is located a half-hour from Santa Fe and is nestled in the southern Rockies. “We helped the camp there with some service projects that will help them for the summer

York girls basketball team in midst of busy stretch Dukes lose to recent close games to Glenbard East and Downers North By Mike Miazga Correspondent

ELMHURST — The York girls basketball team’s 9-8 record through its first 17 games doesn’t tell the entire story. Of the Dukes’ nine losses, eight have been by seven or fewer points and four have come by four or fewer points. York dropped a pair of close contests recently to Downers Grove North and Glenbard East. In a 41-38 West Suburban Conference Silver Division loss to Glenbard East, the game was tied 9-9 after the first quarter and 19-19 at halftime. York outscored Downers North 11-8

Continued from page 23 there,” said Strube. “We worked together and had some fun. We cleared trees and moved brush in the middle of a snowstorm.” There also was time for basketball practice. “We practiced a couple days and the girls were worried they were out of shape,” said Strube. “It was because of the elevation there. I had to explain about the elevation. It was a great time. The girls were encouraging each other. Basketball is important, but these types of things are what help them build their future. It was such an enjoyable experience.” Prior to heading to New Mexico, Timothy went 1-3 over the holidays at the Lisle tournament. Timothy opened the tournament against an Antioch team that was undefeated and ended up winning the tournament. “They were fast and had good shooters,” said Strube. “Our girls played very well against them. We held them to 47 points and the rest of the tournament they were scoring between 65 and 75 points. I was very proud of how our girls played. I was thrilled with how we played the day after Christmas. It was a very good start.” Timothy then lost to Westmont. “It was a close game when we played them the first time,” said Strube. “We were down by only one at halftime but then I think we scored three points the second half. We played a good first half and struggled in the second half.”

Prep’s Bianchini is a force Racking up the wins toICbeCatholic reckoned with on the wrestling mat

I

By Mike Miazga Correspondent

C Catholic Prep sophomore wrestler Joe Bianchini made quite a debut as a freshman last season. Bianchini ended up qualifying for the Class 1A state wrestling tournament. A year later, Bianchini is up to his same tricks—enjoying another highly successful season on the mat. After a pair of recent wins against Westmont and St. Laurence, Bianchini improved his record to 22-1 at 106 pounds. As of late last week he was ranked seventh in the state among Class 1A wrestlers at that weight. At the Lincoln tournament, Bianchini beat the No. 7 ranked wrestler in Class 2A in the semifinals. His only

loss this season was to a Class 3A wrestler in a match where Bianchini moved up to 115 pounds. “I’m getting to my techs more,” said Bianchini of his improvement this season. “I’m working hard in the wrestling room every day and my offense has gotten a lot better. I’ve been attacking more and I keep attacking until I get my points.” Bianchini, who won tournament titles early this season at Sterling and Lincoln, said most of his victories this season have come via pinfall. “I’m working from the bottom to get my pinning combinations and all my techs,” he said. “When I’m out there I’m trying to get to my techs more and get as many points as I can.” Bianchini said last year’s state tournament appearance was an eyeopener for him. “That has really

driven me to do well this year and get back to state,” he said. Bianchini noted he weighs in the 110- to 111-pound neighborhood this season. “At my weight (106) it’s all about who attacks first or who gets the most points,” he said. “You see quick guys and strong guys at that weight.” He added wrestling juniors and seniors at the varsity level doesn’t enter his mind. “I don’t think about age,” he said. “I just go out there and do what I do.” Bianchini has been wrestling for nine years. He started when he was only four years old. “I’ve loved it ever since,” he said. “I love the competitiveness and the feeling you get when you get your hand raised at the end of the day.” He now wrestles for the well-

regarded Izzy Style Wrestling club in the offseason. This is his third year with the organization. “Izzy Style definitely helped me get better,” said Bianchini, who was part of a Team Illinois squad over the offseason that qualified for nationals in Fargo, N.D. Bianchini also is having a blast being part of the IC Catholic Prep wrestling team. “We are getting much better every day,” he said. “I see improvement from everybody every day. It’s been a good deal. You get to see your teammates grow as wrestlers every day.” Bianchini now has his sights set on finishing the regular season strong and heading into the postseason with plenty of momentum. “I have to get back in the room, keep working hard every day and work to get perfect,” he said.

Nov. 21, 2015-Jan. 5 A local restaurant in the 100 block of S. Route 83 reported that an employee had been responsible for a series of thefts over a period of six weeks, according to police. During questioning, Amy Golden, 24, of Bloomingdale, admitted to police that she was responsible for those thefts. She was charged with theft. Jan. 3 • Linda Swiston-Long, 65, of Barrington, was arrested at a food store in the 200 block of S. Route 83 at around 5:12 p.m. Police said Swiston-Long was found to have removed merchandise from the store and left without paying. It also was learned that Swiston-Long had a vehicle in the parking lot and merchandise belonging to a food store in Willowbrook was located in the vehicle, according to police. The Willowbrook Police Department responded to the station and interviewed the suspect regarding the alleged retail theft at the Wil-

lowbrook food store. Charges are pending in their case. In Elmhurst, Swiston-Long was charged with retail theft. • Identity theft was reported in the 400 block of Maple Avenue at around 2:35 p.m. A victim told police that two transactions were made to her credit card without her permission. The victim called her credit card company and it immediately stopped all transactions. Jan. 2 A victim in the 900 block of N. York told police that an unknown suspect had forced open the newspaper machines and taken the papers inside. The offender was described by the victim as an Hispanic male, approximately 30-40 years of age wearing a red flannel shirt and a dark baseball cap. The unknown offender then left the area, unknown direction of travel. Dec. 31-Jan. 2 A victim in the 500 block of S. Prospect told police that there was fraudulent activity on two of her credit cards. The victim was advised that her credit limit was increased without her request and two separate purchases were made to her card. Dec. 27 A victim in the 200 block of Columbia

told police she discovered a fraudulent transaction made to her debit card. The victim does not know who may have used her debit card or how they obtained the card number. An investigation is pending. Dec. 21 An employee at a store in the 100 block of E. First St. told police that on the above date she noticed two $20 counterfeit bills while balancing the cash drawers. There was a total loss of $40. Dec. 7-Dec. 25 A victim in the 800 block of S. York told police that while visiting the above address—which belonged to the victim’s deceased great aunt and has since been vacant—the victim noticed the rear door had been left open along with a broken window. Nothing was taken from the house, but signs of drug activity were seen.

Warrant service Jan. 5 Robert L. Boesenberg, 20, of Elmhurst, was arrested in the 100 block of E. First St. at around 11:38 a.m. Police said Boesenberg came into the police department to turn himself in on a warrant.

ELMHURST — Elmhurst College’s gardens and food scrap composting program have won recognition from the National Wildlife Federation and the Illinois Food Scrap Coalition. The National Wildlife Federation recently designated the College’s gardens a Certified Wildlife Habitat because they help wildlife thrive by providing ample food, water, cover and a place to raise their young. The College’s many gardens, but specifically the recently-dedicated Monarch Butterfly Waystation, are designed to support pollinators and other wildlife. In addition, the College has reduced chemical pesticide use across campus to encourage the survival of critical wildlife populations. The College also received a Gold Partner designation in the We Compost program, run by the Illinois Food Scrap Coalition, which reports Elmhurst has generated more than 21,000 pounds of food scrap compost just in this academic year so far—keeping more than 10 tons of waste out of landfills.

Each January, a collection of businesses in Grand Haven’s Main Street district invite the public to sample wines and check out art from local artists. As guests sip on samples of Shiraz and Chardonnay, area artists offer talks about their works, all of which are displayed at the various venues as part of Wine About Winter. Tasting packages are $10 in advance of the event and include a commemorative wine glass and starter tasting tickets. The trolley will be available to take you between all of the participating businesses from 6 - 9 p.m. When the winter weather is at its worst, head down to Grand Haven’s Main Street and “wine” a bit. You’ll feel better! Sponsored by Santo Stefano del Lago, Gallery Uptown, and the Frame & Mat Shop. For information visit downtowngh. com. **You must be 21 & up with a valid ID to participate in the wine tasting
