In December of 2015, the Elmhurst Independent brought its readers a story about a ten-year-old young man named Ben Hoffman who set up his own chocolate stand in his Elmhurst driveway to raise money to help fight children’s cancer. Last year’s event raised more than $12,000 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor program at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Ben, who is now 11, knows firsthand about the work done at Lurie Hospital because he was a patient himself when he was much younger. At just five months, Ben was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer and received most of his treatment at Lurie. Long story short, he has been cancer-free since May 2009. He opened his chocolate stand as a way to give back to the hospital that treated him so well. This year Ben’s Chocolate Stand was held for the third year in a row in the Hoffman’s driveway on Saturday, Nov. 19 and the numbers are showing another successful endeavor. “We are very fortunate to get as much foot traffic as we can handle from our supportive community,”

said Ben’s mother Tricia Hoffman. “Despite windy conditions that prevented us from inflating a bounce house as planned, Ben’s Chocolate Stand was a huge success.” She added that donations were still coming in, but the current total raised for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program at Lurie Children’s is $13,775. On Monday, Nov. 21, Ben’s family, including his parents Joe and Tricia, his siblings Emmett and Jocelyn, and his Uncle Jeff Hoffman, made a check presentation to the Pediatric Brain Tumor program at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Among those who attended the brief reception were Ben’s neurosurgeon Dr. Tord Alden, his oncologist Dr. Stewart Goldman, and Nurse Wendy Stellpflug, who is the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program Coordinator. Needless to say they were delighted not only with the contribution but also to see Ben in such continued good health. Last year, in addition to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program, Ben donated a portion of the proceeds to the Sarcoma Team at Lurie Children’s in support of his friend, fellow swimmer and baseball teammate, Payton O’Brien. Payton lost his fight and

IC Catholic Prep football team wins state championship 43-0 Knights close out perfect campaign with another blowout victory

By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

Perfection! Domination! Those are the two words that sum up the IC Catholic Prep football team’s 2016 season. The Knights put the bow on a perfect 14-0 season with a 43-0 victory over Carlinville in the Class 3A state football title game held at Memorial Stadium on the grounds of the University of Illinois in Champaign. It was IC Catholic Prep’s third state title. The Knights also won state crowns in 2002 and 2008. Head coach Bill Krefft has now won state titles as a player and coach at IC Catholic Prep. He was a lineman and co-captain on the 2002 state-championship team. Krefft also was an assistant coach on the 2008 title team. In the win against Carlinville, the Knights were their usual dominating selves, out-gaining their

opponent 475 yards to 190 yards despite Carlinville running seven more offensive plays. IC Catholic Prep ran for 333 yards on the ground on only 34 carries and also had 142 passing yards. Carlinville also held the ball longer than IC Catholic Prep (25:35-22:25) yet scored no points. Jordan Rowell led the Knights with a Class 3A state-championship game record 270 rushing yards on 26 carries (10.4 yards per carry). He scored three more rushing touchdowns and added a fourth on a pass reception to share a Class 3A state record for most touchdowns in the championship contest (4). Rowell finished the season with 2,295 rushing yards and 37 rushing touchdowns. He finished the year with 42 total touchdowns. The 42 touchdowns in a season places Rowell in the Top 10 in state history all-time. Luke Ricobene completed 9 of

17 passes for 142 yards and three touchdowns. Lazerick Eatman caught three passes for 53 yards and a touchdown. Matt Sutton caught two passes for 41 yards and a touchdown while Rowell had a fourth touchdown via a reception. He finished with two catches for 28 yards and the one score.

After IC Catholic Prep recovered the ensuing kickoff. Eatman, on the very next play, caught a 28-yard TD from Ricobene with 11:00 to play in the first quarter to give the Knights a 15-0 lead.

Council Capsules

FOR THE ELMHURST INDEPENDENT

• Resolution: Extra ice cream for Field School students Members of Girl Scout Troop 50548 from Field School led the pledge of Allegiance at the November 21st City Council meeting. Before the meeting Mayor Steve Morley led them on a tour of the administrative offices and then took them to the City Council room where he presided over a resolution for extra ice cream for Field students for a month. Morley said if the staff at Field School had any questions to call him. • TIF 2 funds transferred to TIF 5 Aldermen have approved the transfer of funds of approximately $3 million in 2015 and all subsequent funds of approximately $450,000 to be collected in 2017, from the Lake Street Development Fund (TIF2) to

the Church Rd./Lake St Redevelopment Fund (TIF 5). These funds will be used for TIF eligible costs, including land acquisition/improvements for the redevelopment of the Elmhurst BMW dealership within TIF 5. Illinois State Statutes for Tax Increment Financing (TIF) allow for the transfer of funds between contiguous TIF Districts. The City agreed to match the incentive offered by a neighboring community seeking to have the BMW dealership to move there. • CAC raises TIF concern; “cart put before the horse” Ben Silver, a lawyer for the Citizen Advocacy Center, spoke during public comment saying he was concerned about the timeline of the transfer of funds from TIF #2 to TIF #5. He asked when promises were made. He hoped that there would be an opportunity to get more information. “It seem like the cart was put before the horse,” he said during pub-

VISION by Dr. Mark Skowron

CONNECTING THE DOTS

Because glaucoma often does not cause noticeable early symptoms, people can have the disease and not know it until they experience irreversible vision loss; therefore, it is important for people to have their eyes checked regularly. The cause of glaucoma is unknown, and there is no cure, but its progression can be slowed with treatment once it is diagnosed. To help in the diagnosis of this vision-robbing disease, Australian researchers have developed a testing protocol that identifies glaucoma up to four years sooner than current diagnostic techniques. Their method involves looking at small dots of light of specially chosen size and light intensity. Inability to see them indicates blind spots in the visual field and early loss of peripheral vision. Glaucoma can be treated with eye drops, pills, laser surgery, traditional surgery or a combination of these methods. The goal of any treatment is to prevent loss of vision, as vision loss from glaucoma is irreversible. To schedule an eye exam, please call SKOWRON EYE CARE. Our goal is to help you maintain a lifetime of healthy, clear, comfortable vision by using the latest in technology from in-vogue eyewear and eyeglasses to complex contact lenses to LASIK eye surgery. At Skowron Eye Care, our mission is your vision. P.S. Glaucoma involves the slow destruction of the optic nerve, with early loss primarily occurring in peripheral (side) vision.

Contemplating marriage: Knowing the rules

I’ve been contemplating marriage. Not getting married. I took care of that task years ago. I’ve been contemplating marriage as in the concept of. My daughter recently tied the knot and I’ve been reminiscing about my own newlywed days – and some of the lessons learned since way back then. When I signed up for this deal called marriage, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Neither did my husband. If someone had told us marriage might be challenging and difficult, we wouldn’t have believed them. How could loving another person be difficult?  (Ha!) Thank goodness for our naivety. And optimism. Now, all these years later, I think we’d both say marriage can be challenging (not to mention a bit of hard work). But it is good work, and challenges are opportunities for growth. And when done right, it gets easier and more fulfilling as

the years pass. Most days. Since saying “I do,” my better half and I have learned a few tidbits (Dare I say rules?) about successfully navigating this thing called wedded bliss. If we were to give unsolicited advice to our daughter and other newlys (which of course we never would), here’s what we might say: 1. First, realize there are no rules, really. Think of these as starting points. 2. Over the years, you will break most if not all these rules (a.k.a. starting points). So will your spouse. Forgive him or her and just as importantly, forgive yourself.

3. It’s not about you. It’s about both of you. If you live out your marriage as though it’s about you, you’ll likely have a short marriage – or at the very least an unhappy one. 4. Eat meals together. At least once each day. They will serve as an anchor and provide an opportunity to share time and conversation with each other. It’s the seemingly small habits like this that fortify your relationship. In a marriage, small things can be big things. 5. Sleep in the same bed. Even if it seems more convenient not to. Even if the one of you snores or kicks the covers off (not that I’m implying anything). Love is hardly ever convenient. Waking together gives you a few moments to plan your day, and plot your strategies – if you have children. It also gives you the opportunity to experience morning breath and morning hair. It gives you the chance to say

Special Kids Day Holiday Party coming Dec. 7

good morning before the chaos of the rest of your day proceeds. 6. Always kiss each other goodbye. It’s also nice to kiss hello and goodnight and happy Groundhog’s day, but goodbye is the one to make a priority. You never know if a goodbye will be your last, and you’d regret forever if you hadn’t paid enough attention to seal it with a kiss. 7. Realize you do not have to agree on everything. Chances are even after decades you won’t have come to terms about the thermostat. It’s the bane of many a great marriage and a war that can’t be won. There are countless similar battles involving laundry folding techniques, vacation destinations, parenting practices and driving habits (which could be a category in itself). 8. Falling in love is easy; staying

On Wednesday, Dec. 7 from 3:308 p.m., children with special needs and their families are invited to Wilder Mansion, 211 So. Prospect, for the annual Special Kids Day Holiday Party.

Storm water trap chosen over surface detention Project will provide relief to 63 homes in the Washington St. area By Dan McLeister FOR THE ELMHURST INDEPENDENT

At its meeting on Monday, Nov. 21, the Elmhurst City Council has approved a proposal for a precast concrete underground storm water retention vault, which will provide flood relief to 63 homes in the Wash-

ington St. area. The storm trap, to be done by StormTrap LLC, will provide for approximately three acre feet of underground storage. The project, along with the under-construction Madison Early Childhood Center Storm Water Improvement Project, will provide a significant benefit to the neighborhood, according to Alderman Jim Kennedy (6th Ward), chairman of the Public Works and Buildings (PWB) Committee which recommended approval. “Dropping flood water a foot is a big deal, but still more needs to be

done,” Kennedy said. The storm water project is currently scheduled to commence in early March of 2017. The project is planned for vacant land in the 600 block of Washington where the City bought and demolished three houses to provide space for flood control. StormTrap LLC’s proposal is for $627, 056. The actual storm vault installation, along with all other components of the overall storm water project (earth work, utility installation), will be completed under a fu-

ture contract. Purchasing the StormTrap vault directly from the supplier will allow for the manufacturing of the system to commence sooner and the project to begin earlier in 2017. Ald. Michael Honquest (4th Ward) said even an increase of a small additional amount of water detained is worth it to help out one of the worst areas of town for flooding. When Ald. Michael Bram (3rd Ward) noted that the project cost was more than a 30 percent increase from the original price for a retention basin, Kennedy said, “We are

not spending money foolishly.” “I believe every inch counts but there is a point where too much money is being spent on a project,” Bram said. “The more-than-projected $300,000 increase could have been spent elsewhere. I do not want to vote no because it would delay the project.” All 12 aldermen present voted on November 21st to approve the project. Alds. Mark Sabatino (1st Ward) and Kevin York (4th Ward) did not attend the City Council meeting. Bram said he favored an open air retention basin.

Chaplin squeaks past Blass to win County Board race in District 2

By Dee Longfellow FOR THE ELMHURST INDEPENDENT

Last week, the Independent reported that as of Tuesday morning, Nov. 22, the two-year term on the DuPage County Board in District #2 had not yet been called. After a 300-vote deficit on Election night Nov. 8, Democrat Elizabeth “Liz” Chaplin was ahead of her Republican challenger Richard Blass

by just 13 votes at the Independent’s press time Tuesday morning and the DuPage County Election Commission was still counting ballots. When all was said and done, Chaplin, the incumbent, topped Blass by only 50 votes. Vote tallies which included mail and provisional ballots, resulted in Chaplin receiving 36,726 votes to Blass’ 36,676. A county board member since 2012, Chaplin said she was about ready to concede the day after the election, when preliminary results showed she trailed Blass by just 327 votes. But more than 1,000 provisional ballots had not yet been included in the totals and more than 5,000 mail ballots had not been counted. The

mail ballots had to be postmarked by Nov. 8 and received at the Commission by Nov. 22. Ultimately, 1,279 more votes were included after election night. Blass, who is an Elmhurst resident, said he will consult with his campaign manager before deciding whether to ask for a recount. “I certainly will take it under advisement,” he said. “Two weeks ago, it was just such a bad night for Democrats in general,” said Chaplin. “Everyone was telling us we had lost. It was in the newspapers.” But she never conceded because she had advised people who could not or did not want to vote on Elec-

tion Day to vote by mail, instead of voting early. “’Please mail in your ballot’ I said, because with early voting there is no paper trail,” Chaplin said. “I don’t know if that had anything to do with the big swing in votes.” Chaplin will be the only Democrat to serve on the DuPage County Board during the next term. “I do think it is good to have at

least one person from each party on the board to have checks and balances and to ask different questions that somebody else doesn’t ask,” she said.

Most people undergo orthodontic treatment to improve the attractiveness of their smiles, but recent research has by Jeffrey Boland uncovered another T. potential benefit. LicensedtoOrthodontic According scientists Specialist who studied individuals with overbites, underbites, and crowded teeth, correcting their malocclusions led them to have better balance and posture, particularly when they were tired. There is increasing evidence that the “stomatognathic system,” which is composed of the organs and tissues that allow us to eat, talk, chew, swallow, and smile, is linked to postural control. This may be due to the fact that the main nerve responsible for chewing (the “trigeminal nerve”) is closely linked to the “vestibular nucleus” (the part of the brain responsible for balance control), as well as neck muscles and jaw muscles.

IC Schools hold Thanksgiving prayer service By Dee Longfellow FOR THE ELMHURST INDEPENDENT

Below are scenes from a Thanksgiving Prayer Service for IC Grade School and IC Catholic Prep, led by Immaculate Conception Pastor, Very Rev. Tom Paul and Associate Pastor Chris Lankford. Â

Before the service concluded, the 2016 State Championshipbound ICCP Football Team was honored with a special blessing as they prepare for the big game in Champaign, which the team went on to win, thus clinching the state championship.

COURTESY PHOTOS Elmhurst Independent

Above left: These students from Immaculate Conception took part in the Thanksgiving Prayer Service for both the high school and grade school last week prior to dismissal for the holiday. The event served not only to acknowledge Thanksgiving, but also to send off the ICCP football team to the state championship game, which they ended up winning 430, capping a perfect season.

Above right: Pictured here surrounded by students of both ICCP High School and IC Grade School is IC Pastor, Very Rev. Tom Paul who led the Thanksgiving Prayer Service.

Left: Lined up at the back of the room are the members of the ICCP football team as the other students at the Thanksgiving Prayer Service wished them well on their journey to the state championship game. Prayers were heard and answered because the team came home the champs, winning the last big game by a score of 43-0.

History Museum presents Jolly Old St. Nick Concert

Worship Services Directory

On Friday, Dec. 2 from 7-8:15 p.m., the Elmhurst History Museum is hosting the Jolly Old St. Nicholas Concert at Yorkfield Presbyterian Church, 1099 So. York St.
Before there was Santa Claus, there was St. Nicholas, known traditionally as the “bearer of gifts.” On December 6, many Europeans still celebrate St. Nicholas Day, and many Christmas traditions emerged from this holiday. The Elmhurst History Museum invites the public to celebrate this tradition and Elmhurst’s German roots with a concert of German carols and a performance by Jolly Old St. Nick. Now in its 80th year, Elmhurst’s own Damenchor (Women’s Chorus) and Männerchor (Men’s Chorus) will perform German carols that the audience can join in singing. St. Nicholas himself, brought to life by first-person history performer Terry Lynch, will join the festivities to explain the celebration and take pictures with the kids. Hot cocoa and sweet treats will be provided. Children are encouraged to wear their pajamas! All ages welcome, but reservations are required. Please RSVP online at Elmhursthistory.org (Special Events section) or call 630-833-1457.

Christian Congregation Church Christian Congregation Church invites you to join us in worship on Sundays at 9:30 a.m., and Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m.

Scenes from City Centre’s tree-lighting event

Best seat in the house

This little one found the perfect place to be on the evening of Saturday, Nov. 26 – seated on Santa’s lap! St. Nick was on hand at the City Centre tree-lighting event to kick-off the Holiday shopping season in downtown Elmhurst. City Centre reminds you to Shop Local!

A common sight

Be the First to Wish Your Customers a Happy New Year...

Santa, seriously, we gotta talk

by placing your greeting in our Thursday, December 29 edition of the Independent Newspapers.

This young man managed to get up close and personal as he talks with Santa Claus at the City Centre tree-lighting. Santa Claus was patient and good-natured as he spoke with many children who told him what they hope to find under the tree on Christmas morning.

IC Catholic Prep boys bowling team hitting the mark By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

The IC Catholic Prep boys bowling team returns three key contributors from last year’s squad. Coach Sarah Palandri welcomes back senior Tim Shuflit and juniors CJ Slowinski and Clayton Davis. Slowinski averages a 149, while Shuflit is at 132 and Davis at 128. Key newcomers to the team include senior Trey Morris and freshman Ian Rickert. “We are composed of very diverse students with different age levels and bowling background,” said Palandri. “Our bowlers support and encourage each other as well as being competitive during matches.” Consistency has been a big improvement for the Knights in the early part of the season.

“At the beginning of the season it was difficult to have our bowlers mark each frame with a strike or spare. I have started to see more marks and less open frames,” said Palandri. Shuflit, Slowinski and Morris have shown promise in the early going. “Each of these bowlers has the talent to go far during the season,” the coach said. “They are competitive amongst themselves.” Palandri is looking forward to seeing even more progress from her bowlers. “I see a lot more personal records being set this year,” she said. “We hope to have two or three bowlers advance to sectionals.” In the early going, IC Catholic Prep defeated Elgin St. Edward and lost to Chicago Christian. Morris and Shuflit were the team’s top finishers in each contest.

Man in the middle Senior Chris Johnson plays a key role in the IC Catholic Prep football team winning the state title

By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

The middle linebacker position in football is akin to the quarterback on the other side of the ball—a captain, a leader, one that provides direction. And IC Catholic Prep’s football team had a dandy of a middle linebacker this season in the form of Chris Johnson, who was one of many who helped the Knights to an undefeated 14-0 season and the Class 3A state title. “It’s a major leadership role,” said Johnson. “You try to put everybody in a position that will give us leverage to try and limit the opponent’s offense.” Johnson said his improvement this season stemmed from his reactions on the field. “I’m doing a better job reading what the offense gives me and I’m attacking the ball more aggressively,” he said. “Coach (Bill) Krefft gives me the freedom to make my reads and go after the ball and take my lane.” Johnson stressed his play on the field would not have been possible with the help of others. “Our defensive line is having a great year,” he said late last week. “Jimmy Kenneally is a great leader as well and the guy to my left, Kemon Reese, is having an amazing year.” Johnson got involved with football at a young age playing with the Elmhurst Eagles and Memorial Park (Hillside) Spartans youth programs. “I like that football is a contact

sport and also that it takes a team to win,” said Johnson, who also played tight end on offense. Johnson said it’s tough to put into words what this season has been like. “It’s been exciting and exhilarating. It’s been nothing but great,” he said. “We were aiming for this goal the whole year ever since January when we started putting work in the weight room in the off-season.” Johnson added his time in the program is something he won’t forget. “I love communicating with my teammates and just talking to the guys,” he said. “These guys are my brothers. I feel like I’ve grown a lot and matured a lot since I’ve been here and these guys have helped me.” Johnson noted a big thrill for him once the season started was the team’s Week 1 win against Bishop McNamara, a team that handed the Knights both its losses last year, including the last one in the state semifinals. “We had some jitters and butterflies when the game first started, but once we started playing everything flowed and we got a win,” he said. And 13 wins later the Knights now can call themselves state champions.

In the trenches By Mike Miazga

Sophomore Ricky Mysliewiec a two-way contributor for the IC Catholic Prep football team

CORRESPONDENT

IC Catholic Prep sophomore Ricky Mysliewiec said his improved play on both sides of the line this season is attributed to one source. “You name it and the coaching staff helped me get better at it,” said Mysliewiec, who played left tackle on offense and defensive tackle and nose guard on defense for the Knights, who won the Class 3A state football title last Friday in Champaign. “We have great coaches who help us get better. They helped me with my feet and technique. They have helped me with everything. I know more now, I’m moving my feet quicker and pulling my inside foot. They are great. They are willing to help anybody learn how to play the game.” Mysliewiec said technique alone didn’t help the offensive line open major holes in the opposing defense throughout the season. “We are so close that we know what we have to do to be the very best on every single play,” he said. “It’s amazing. We know what to do with each other. We click on that line and that gives Jordan (Rowell) and Lazerick (Eatman) the space and holes they need to get 10 to 15 yards a carry.” Mysliewiec said his strong play on defense resulted from a crash course on improved technique. “I’m shooting my hands and running my feet,” he said. “We do some things differently on the defensive line. I’m getting off the blocks and getting to the gaps and running my feet.” And Mysliewiec said he had plenty of help from the team’s second line of defense. “Our linebackers

are central to the defense. They have more of a key role,” he said. “Every play they make, they make us look good on the line. For us it’s been about everybody doing their job. If everybody does their job it makes everybody look good. And if we all are doing our job we all are clicking together.” Mysliewiec said his age and the fact he’s going up against juniors and seniors hasn’t been a factor. “I’ve always been a big kid and was a kid who was over the weight limit in my football age group and played up,” he said. “I’m very experienced with that. I was in fourth grade and playing up age levels. It doesn’t bother or affect me.” Mysliewiec said despite playing on both sides of the line, fatigue never has been a problem. “Coach gets us so ready starting in summer camp,” he said. “We’re so ready when the season starts. We run a lot so we are conditioned very well. We’re strong up and down the team. It’s football. It’s what you play for. You want to be out there so you suck it up if you are a little tired because your teammates depend on you.” Just two years into his high-school football experience and Mysliewiec had the opportunity to play for and win a state championship. “It’s unbelievable,” he said earlier last week. “I can’t even describe it. It’s been such a great dream of mine to play on a team like this. You grow up wishing you could do this and now you have the opportunity. We have an unbelievable team with great coaches.” And that unbelievable team returned to Elmhurst with a state championship.

A Monthly Guide to a Fitter, More Healthier You

Less invasive spine surgery returns patient to very active lifestyle You would never guess that Chuck Thompson, 46, of Oak Brook, an active father of four who spent the summer wakesurfing with his family, could barely walk without pain just more than a year ago. The problems began after a waterskiing accident one morning in June 2012, when Thompson ruptured two discs in his low back. The discs degenerated after two years, which caused immense pain in his back and crippling sciatica. “Walking and sitting was excruciating. I could hardly walk down the street without sweating,” says Thompson. Thompson met with several highly regarded orthopedic Chuck Thompson physicians in downtown Chicago, but he says, “I just didn’t get a good feeling about it. It was all about them and not about me.” Thompson was about to fly to a spine center in Austin, Texas when a friend referred him to Nicholas Mataragas, MD, a spine surgeon with DuPage Medical Group who performs surgery at Edward-Elmhurst Health.

“I met with Dr. Mataragas and the first thing he asked me was, ‘Well what do you want your life to look like after surgery?’” says Thompson. “He was the only doctor who asked me what I want my life to look like, versus what he could do for me.” Thompson told Dr. Mataragas he wanted to be able to downhill ski. Together, they reviewed the new technologies and all the possibilities for treatment. Thompson spent months doing his own extensive research and consulting with Dr. Mataragas, who he said listened patiently and was willing to go at the pace he needed. Thompson wanted to avoid invasive surgery, and Dr. Mataragas, who has expertise in innovative, less invasive techniques, recommended spinal fusion. On May 15, 2015 at Elmhurst Hospital, Thompson had minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS TLIF) surgery. Dr. Mataragas used special, high-tech equipment that enabled him to access the spine without cutting through muscle. “This procedure gives patients all of the benefits of traditional lumbar fusion surgery without many of the limitations that it can entail. Patients who have the minimally invasive surgery have much less blood loss, shorter hospital stays and much quicker return to work,” says Dr. Mataragas. “I immediately woke up without the pain,” he says. “My surgical healing time was drastically reduced. I was actually walking the next day. With a brace and being very careful, but still. “It did take a long healing process for it to fully fuse. You have to be very disciplined. You aren’t supposed to twist for about three months, even getting out of bed you can’t twist, but Dr. Mataragas walked me through all that,” he said. “Considering three months of inconvenience for my life back with no pain. I’m just so glad I went through it. I’m so grateful.” Thompson’s goal was to ski with his family in Park City by Presidents’ Day in February. After seven months of physical therapy, he got clearance from Dr. Mataragas – he would be able to meet his goal. “I skied in Park City for the first time without pain in about three years and we had a blast as a family,” he says. “We cater the patient’s exact surgical procedure to their lifestyle and occupation. We also plan their recovery and rehab to allow for the quickest return to their usual activities as possible,” says Dr. Mataragas. Thompson hopes to encourage others who feel hopeless or are too afraid to have the surgery. “It really is a mindset. You have to ask yourself, ‘what little baby step can I make today to get closer to my goal?’” He says he was fortunate to have friends who had gone through similar procedures and guided him through it, along with his wife of 24 years, Joi. At his one-year check-up last May, Thompson was given full clearance by Dr. Mataragas. “He said, ‘go live your life, you have no restrictions.’” He had gotten his life back. “Before the surgery, I was in so much pain. Every step was a lightning bolt and sitting felt like daggers going into my back. I would have to lay on the couch with ice twice a day for two hours just to be able to do anything,” says Thompson. Today, Thompson is enjoying an active and pain-free lifestyle. “The surgery put me back into humankind. By this summer, my life was back to normal.” He, Joi, and their four children, ages 12, 14, 16 and 18, spent time at their lake house during the summer, where Thompson enjoyed stand-up paddleboarding and wakesurfing. For winter, he’s looking forward to downhill skiing with his family. Of his experience at Edward-Elmhurst, he concludes, “Dr. Mataragas is a rock star as far as I’m concerned.” For more information, visit www.eehealth.org/services/orthopedics.

Texas court injunction blocks new OT exempt regulations nationwide

Independent Newspapers Present...

Senior Lifestyle! 2016

By Dee Longfellow FOR THE ELMHURST INDEPENDENT

The Governmental Affairs Committee of the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce & Industry is sharing the following update from the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) regarding a court injunction against new overtime exemption regulations: On November 22, 2016, a federal district court in Texas granted a preliminary injunction that temporarily blocks the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) from implementing and enforcing its recently revised regulations on the white-collar exemptions to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Employers should note that this is only a temporary injunction, not a permanent one, the ACCE noted.
