Moyer offers explanation of Future Focused meetings Gatherings have already begun, to continue through May

FOR THE ELMHURST INDEPENDENT

At a meeting of the Elmhurst District 205 School Board last week, District Superintendent David Moyer provided the board with details outlining the district’s presentation at four community meetings in May regarding the district’s master facility plan. The first meeting took place at York High School on May 12. The second meeting took place on May 14 at Churchville Middle School. The upcoming meetings will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. at Bryan Middle School (on May 23) and at Sandburg Middle School (on May 30). Moyer noted that his presentation was a rough draft of what the district would take to the community during the four meetings this month. His presentation noted that maintaining the district’s aging buildings is becoming more challenging. He also noted the four main options the district is considering as it seeks community input in developing a master facility plan. The least expensive option, maintaining the status quo, would require an estimated $26.1 million in repairs to the district’s facilities. The most expensive of the four options, which would include comprehensive improvements at district facilities and completely new facilities for Lincoln Elementary School and Field Elementary School, would have an estimated cost of $168.5 million. Board member Shannon Ebner asked about the projected time frame to finish the potential renovation and construction projects. Moyer said that if voters approved a referendum to borrow money to pay for improvements, there would likely be three

bond issuances, along with staggered construction. He said the potential renovation and construction would take about five years. Ebner also asked how the district could explain to the community that

its debt on previous bonds is expiring. That expiring debt from referendums passed in 2000 and 2006, combined with a stretched-out payback period on potential new debt, would reportedly cause relatively minimal increas-

es to homeowners’ property taxes, even if the community approves the borrowing of up to $168.5 million. Collins said that the district has missed framing the argument that the community can do so much for so lit-

tle of an increase because the district will be debt-free beginning in 2025. If the community agrees to extend the current debt load for another 25 years, that will set the district up for success for the next generation, said Collins.

Race planned with proceeds to benefit Joe Newton Scholarship By Dee Longfellow

FOR THE ELMHURST INDEPENDENT

It will likely come as no surprise to anyone that someone has already organized a race in the late Joe Newton’s honor. Last week, the Independent learned that a new 10K has been scheduled for this July, which will benefit the Joe Newton Scholarship Award of Excellence. The race director is Daniel Dziubski, who ran for Mr. Newton from 1998-2001. “I thought it might be a newsworthy story in Elmhurst because of its rich tradition,” he said. “I am excited to get this event off the ground this year.” The race is called the “Naperville 10K Relay benefitting the Joe Newton Scholarship Award of Excellence. It will be held on July 15 at the North Central College stadium in Naperville, with start times at 8 a.m., 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. The concept for the race is a two-person team 10k relay, according to Dziubski. The race will be on the track and teammates will alternate running laps, passing the baton after each lap, for a total of 25 laps (10K). “The idea comes from a classic workout that Mr. Newton gave to his

cross country runners at York every Fall, on his way to 28 state championships,” Dziubski said, “except it was coined ‘the 2-man 10-mile.’ Since most of us are not running 100 miles a week like Mr. Newton’s runners once did, I thought an abbreviated 10K distance would be a bit more appealing!” To register for the race or for more information, visit endureitsports. com/10krelay.

On Tuesday, Feb. 27, the Independent learned that police were investigating an incident that occurred at York St. and Crestview Ave. While officers reportedly attempted to make a traffic stop, the car had sped off and fled the area. Later, it was reported that the vehicle had been driven by Byron Auterberry, 33, of Chicago. When one of the police officers approached the vehicle from the front, Auterberry reportedly accelerated toward the officer, causing him to discharge his service weapon. Auterberry was later apprehended and taken into custody. On Monday, May 14, DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin issued a statement regarding his investigation into the incident. “Every case involving the use of deadly force by a police officer must be carefully and thoroughly investigated,” Berlin’s statement read. “Such scrutiny is required to ensure the protection of the civil rights of those involved and to maintain the public’s confidence in law enforcement.” Statement: suspect was shot twice; officer’s actions justified “After an investigation … it is my

determination that the officer, Alexander Kefaloukos, who discharged his weapon two times, striking Mr. Auterberry both times, once in the left forearm and once in the right thigh area, was completely justified in his actions and that no criminal charges will be filed against Officer Kefaloukos.” Incident described in more detail On Feb. 27, 2018, at approximately 4:50 p.m., Officer Kefaloukos and another Elmhurst police officer traveling in a separate, unmarked vehicle conducted a traffic stop on Auterberry’s vehicle near southbound York Road and Crestview Avenue, Berlin’s statement read. He said there was another occupant in the vehicle, Kelly Smith. Auterberry and Smith were both suspects in a retail theft. While Officer Kefaloukos drove his vehicle, passing Auterberry on the left, the other officer, positioned behind Auterberry’s car, activated the flashing police lights and siren to initiate the traffic stop. Both officers exited their vehicles and approached Auterberry, loudly ordering him to stop the car and get out, which Auterberry did not do. Officer Kefaloukos approached Auterberry’s vehicle

from the front and remained there while the other officer approached from behind. “During this time, Auterberry continued to move his vehicle forward in a jerking manner, prompting both officers to draw their service weapons. Officer Kefaloukos remained in front of Auterberry’s vehicle, while the other officer attempted to open the driver’s side door, still ordering Auterberry to ‘stop’ and ‘open the door.’ “Auterberry pulled the door closed, yelling, ‘I’m not going back to jail!’ and ‘No!’ and began driving quickly forward towards Officer Kefaloukos. “Both officers’ commands that Auterberry stop and open the door were ignored. Auterberry accelerated toward Officer Kefaloukos, forcing him to jump to his right, out the way of the moving vehicle. Officer Kefaloukos fired his service weapon twice through the driver’s side window, striking Auterberry with each shot. Auterberry continued accelerating, crashing into another vehicle, and fled the scene at a high rate of speed.” Auterberry was taken into custody the next day in Chicago.

Explaining the action was justified Berlin said the main question in the investigation is whether Officer Kefaloukos reasonably believed that Auterberry “posed an imminent threat to the officer or others.“ “Thus, the question becomes whether it was objectively reasonable for Officer Kefaloukos to believe Auterberry posed an immediate threat of death or great bodily harm and, was the use of force necessary to contain that threat? “When Auterberry refused clear and audible commands to ‘Stop’ and ‘Open the door,’ but instead, accelerated quickly, turning his vehicle into a deadly weapon, Officer Kefaloukos was confronted with an imminent unlawful threat of deadly force. Given the violent actions of Auterberry, his refusal to obey repeated police commands, along with his actions with his vehicle, Officer Kefaloukos acted lawfully and was justified in discharging his weapon in order to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or others. “Officer Kefaloukos was also justified in discharging his service weapon to defeat Auterberry’s attempt at escape once he had committed Aggravated Assault on a Police Officer by using his vehicle as a weapon in his attempt to escape. “In my opinion, Officer Kefaloukos made every attempt to reach a peaceful conclusion under very stressful conditions. His concern for the safety and well-being of other motorists and the public at large is a testament to the excellent training that the Elmhurst Police Department provides for their entire force.” (Editor’s note: This story contains portions of the Berlin’s statement, edited for length.

Clarification

In last week’s Independent, a photo appeared on pg. 5 with the caption: “Locals get their Fiesta Bowl ring bling.” While the caption said that the two athletes, DiLeo and Calcagno, “will both return for the 2018 season,” in truth the season began in September, so they are already taking part in the 2018 season.

Buildings go up, development moves forward in downtown By Dee Longfellow FOR THE ELMHURST INDEPENDENT

Recognizing its duty as recorders and keepers of local history as it happens, The Independent brings an update of the development happening in downtown Elmhurst. Mayor Steve Morley said it best at his most recent State of the City (SOTC) address in January. “Our policy with economic development is: keep your foot on the gas at all times,” he said. “There’s competition out there and there is no level playing field. We want to bring development dollars to Elmhurst because it brings services to our community and broadens the tax base. When we broaden our tax base, we reduce the burden on everybody.” The Opus Development at 100 N. Addison, which broke ground in late

December, 2017, is currently under construction. The development will eventually have 164 high-end luxury rental apartments. Construction on Opus is anticipated to be finished in the spring of 2019. “The Opus development will generate a lot of tax dollars, but will be a smaller burden to the school system,” Morley said. Apartments and condos typically attract young professionals and empty-nesters. While they pay real estate taxes (most of which is used to fund Elmhurst schools), these residents do not usually have school-age children. Remodeling the Elmhurst train depot has recently been a high priority for the City since the facility is used by 120,000 commuters per month or more than a million over the course of a year. The depot last had a facelift

The price tag to rebuild it is $17 million, according to Mayor Morley, who also mentioned the project in his SOTC address. “Through hard work, our staff went out to look for dollars available to help fund [the new depot],” Morley said. “We were able to obtain a CMAP grant for $10 million and anThe former Plass Appliance building, now The York Building, looks other $2.4 million in STP funding, so completed and ready for occupancy.

Tony Gambino, owner of Victory Meat & Seafood and HB Jones restaurants, developed the building along with a partner. Service Automotive was a business that stood on the corner across the street to the east of the Elmhurst Post Office. After standing vacant for several years, it has now been torn down to make way for a new devel-

opment that will feature condos and first-floor retail. The Elmhurst Clinic is being completely rebuilt in a way most patients, doctors and others using the facility will appreciate. The new building is going up where the parking lot of the old facility was. Once it is completed, the old clinic will be torn down and made into a parking lot. A photo of the progress on the Elmhurst Clinic appears in this week’s Real Estate & Business section.

The price tag to rebuild it is $17 million, but City staff has managed to obtain $12.4 million in grant financing. The depot is slated for redevelopment sometime in 2019.

Elmhurst Art Museum prepares to unveil McCormick House restoration Celebration includes related programming, exhibit: House Revealed: New Views

The Elmhurst Art Museum will unveil its restoration of the original façade of Mies van der Rohe’s McCormick House with an intervention by Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle and a complementary three-part exhibition - Mies’s McCormick House Revealed: New Views - starting Sunday, June 10. In association, a series of public programming has been announced showcasing the significance of the McCormick House (1952) and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s place in the overall history of Chicago architecture.

860-880 Lake Shore Drive (1951) in a revolutionary prototype for mass-produced modular housing. It was originally located nearby at 299 Prospect Avenue, Elmhurst, and was acquired by Elmhurst Art Museum and moved to its current location at 150 Cottage Hill Avenue in 1994. Today, the McCormick House is the cornerstone of the Elmhurst Art Museum’s collection. About the restoration and intervention The iconic carport entrance of this historically significant building will be visible for the first time in more than 20 years, having been obscured by an addition connecting it to the Museum since 1997. Elmhurst’s Heritage Architecture Studio is working with Museum Executive Director John McKinnon to oversee the historic preservation by Berglund Construction. In tandem with the revelation of the building’s full exterior, internationally acclaimed artist Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle will create Seeing Red, a stunning architectural intervention within the McCormick House that builds on an idea of the original developers Robert Hall McCormick and Herbert S. Greenwald, who offered to make glass windows of the proposed prefab housing “almost any shade of the rainbow.”

About the McCormick House In 1952, the renowned modern architect Mies van der Rohe designed a home for Robert Hall McCormick III, a member of one of Chicago’s most prominent families, and his wife, the poet Isabella Gardner. The McCormick House— one of only three single-family homes built by Mies in the United States—originally served two purposes: it was a home for the McCormick family and a prototype for a proposed group of smaller, affordable middle-class homes in Chicago’s suburbs that McCormick, Herbert S. Greenwald, and Mies were hoping to develop. The McCormick House is a rare and important example of Mies’s mature style, incorporating elements of About the exhibition both Farnsworth House (1951) and At the same time, the Muse-

um will stage Mies’s McCormick House Revealed: New Views, a complementary three-part exhibition curated by renowned Columbia University Professor of Art History and Archeology Barry Bergdoll. New Views will provide background, context, and visibility to the McCormick House and serve as an introduction for a broad audience. New Views’ first gallery will contain models of the prototype house and the potential prefab houses that were to be made after it, in addition to reproductions of historical photographs and advertisements for the houses. Among the highlights will be loans from the Mies van der Rohe archive at the Museum of Modern Art, including three drawings of the McCormick House that have never been exhibited. New Views will also serve as the only U.S. venue for Glass Houses, an international traveling exhibition curated by Renato Anelli, Professor at the Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning - University of São Paulo and curatorial advisor for New Views, and co-curated by Sol Camacho, Cultural Director of Instituto Bardi/Casa de Vidro and Ana Lúcia Ceravolo, a Post-PhD researcher on Architectural Heritage at IAU USP. Taking place in the second gallery, the exhibition will contextualize the McCormick House with other glass houses across North and

South America. Finally, the third gallery of New Views will display photographs by contemporary artists responding to reflections and transparency on the iconic glass walls designed by Mies, including works by Scott Fortino, Veronika Kellndorfer, Luisa Lambri and Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle.

The New Views exhibition is supported in part by awards from the National Endowment of the Arts and the Explore Elmhurst Grant Program. Research support was provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. New Views and the intervention will be on view through August 26, 2018.

We’re Great At Fixing Back Pain... Ignoring it can mean that it’s just going to get worse. Here’s what you need to know: What can you do when you suffer with back pain?

What kind of back pain do you have? 1 - It’s A New Experience Congratulations, it’s your first time. At the moment it’s worrying. If it’s number 4 from below it might even be a bit terrifying. If you ignore it, it can eventually turn into number 2, 3 or even 4. This is a good time to nip the problem in the bud. 2 - It’s An Old Persistent Ache A bit like an annoying relative, you don’t like it very much but you’ve learned to put up with it. You probably can’t be bothered to do much about it or you already would have. It’s usually at it’s worst when you’re sitting. You’re slowly losing mobility but it’s been with you for a long time and you’ll probably wait till you can’t move before deciding to do something about it. Do you really want it to get to that point? 3 - It’s Sheer Agony When You Have It, But It Come and Goes It might just be once a year, or maybe a bit more, but every now and then your back turns your world upside down. This kind of back pain is usually accompanied by excruciating muscle spasms. After a week in bed, on the sofa or on the floor you normally get your life back. This problem will usually become more frequent and severe as you get older. 4 - I’ve Bent Over And Now I Can’t Straighten Up You tried to pick up a paperclip or tie your shoelaces and now you’re stuck. It would be funny if it didn’t hurt so much. If you don’t mind the people living with you putting your socks on then everything is fine. Very often this type of back pain is also accompanied by pain, numbness or tingling of the leg, foot or toes too.

1 - You Can Ignore It A surprising number of people will choose this route. Sometimes the pain will go away by itself even though the problem will remain. The body is good at adapting to things and compensating for problems. Often though, this approach can lead to further problems later on and you could end up being a number 3 below... 2 - Soothe It Or Mask It We’ve become very good at covering up problems with drugs, heat packs, ice, sprays, lotions, massage and dozens of other methods. And although this does offer temporary relief it does nothing to solve the problem. Yes, over time the pain can go permanently but just like option number 1 that’s because of adaptation and compensation, not because the problem has been solved. The most worrying aspect of this approach is that some of the commonly used drugs can cause serious damage. 3 - Wait For Something To Break Some people will go through many cycles of feeling okay and then living with pain. For many, these cycles of pain get worse, but despite the warning signs that the problem is worsening some people choose to wait until something serious goes wrong. 4 - Fix It

Some people don’t just want to get out of pain but they also want to get rid of the problem for good. This is possible with the right approach since the tissues of the body have an inbuilt innate healing mechanism. It’s the same mechanism that’s healed your skin every single time you’ve cut yourself. With specific stimulation of the tissues causing your back pain it’s possible to get them to heal again just like your skin does. If you choose this option you will have long lasting relief and the problem is unlikely to return again.

Slices of life

Adventuring through life: Dare to pursue it

Life is supposed to be an adventure. That’s what they tell us, anyway. Thing is, what type of adventure isn’t specified so I guess we are left to our own devices. Most of us would welcome a nonstop, exciting, inspiring all-expensepaid and anything-but-banal adventure. Truth is, some things are easier said than done. There are practically an infinite number of real-life non-adventuresome adventures that can (and do) interfere and impede our ability to experience the jaw-dropping, isn’t-thisthe-best adventures that we’d choose if given the choice. Getting the garbage to the curb on the right day. Paying the mortgage each month. Scheduling a dental appointment. Making the bed. Dirty laundry. Dirty toilets. Moldy cheese. Changing the oil in the mini van. Changing the sheets. Bird poop on your windshield. Dog poop in the yard. Metaphorical poop in the least wanted of places. Dust bunnies everywhere. Every day life. It may not feel anything remotely close to an adventure, but it can be. It’s all what we make of it. Why not make yours adventuriffic? Let’s say you have to take the garbage down to the street every Mon-

day. This is a reality at my house. The task might not seem thrilling, but my husband has found a way to create adventures in garbage. (Sounds messy!) Each week he challenges himself to see how many bags of household rubbish he can squeeze into our trash container. Ditto that for the recycling receptacle. Last week was a new record for him (and my sons who are called upon to help squish and sometimes stomp the trash). I honestly think it was one of the highlights of his weekend. At least it made him smile. Adventures will do that for you. I find joy when I do a sock-load of laundry and end up with no errant mismatches. Likewise when I go to look for the masking tape and it is in its assigned drawer and not under a couch or in someone’s car. Double that for a sharpened pencil with the eraser still

attached. Adventures in the mundane – why not take them and make them whenever and wherever you can get them? Not all adventures have to be mundane. That would be pretty boring. You can create the adventures of your choosing. Grab the steering wheel; kick it into high gear and take charge. Jump in the deep end. Jump in the shallow end. Ride a roller coaster. Ride a merry-go-round. Apply for a new job. Keep an old one. Tell a joke. Laugh at a joke. Paint the kitchen. Watch paint

dry. Race a go-kart. Practice parallel parking. Adopt a rescue pet. Go fishing. Meet a friend for lunch. Pay it forward. Plant a garden. Book a trip. Read a book. Learn to make mozzarella. Make a candle. Burn the candle at both ends. Go to a game. Play in the game. Take a walk with your spouse. Hold hands. Fall in love for the first time. Fall in love for the last time. Tell someone you love them. Tell someone you love them every day for 10, 20 or 50plus years. Make it what it can be.

Life is an adventure right there in front of us ready for the taking. Pursue it in your own way. Banal or thrilling it’s your choice. Define it for yourself and then go for it. You’ve not a minute to waste. Cheesy, yes. But sometimes cheese speaks the truth.

Board member Jim Collins told the presenters that the board agreed with them about the benefits of all-day kindergarten. Collins said the community would have to “foot the bill” for all-day kindergarten.

Update on special education services The May 8 meeting also included a presentation of an update of the district’s special education services. According to the presentation, the district’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) team identifies individual students’ needs, goals and support services. The team then determines the level of support each student needs. Some students with an IEP may spend a majority of the school day in the general education classroom. There may be times, however, when that student is removed from the general education classroom to receive a higher level of support.

Board votes to recall teachers who were ‘honorably dismissed’ The board voted unanimously near the end of the meeting to adopt a resolution authorizing the recall of honorably dismissed teachers. The district will recall six teachers who had been honorably dismissed because the district wasn’t able to guarantee their positions for the 2018-19 school year. The district will reportedly recall four teachers to full-time status. Two teachers will be recalled to a .8 FTE (full-time equivalent) status.

Schuh, who was 48 years old, grew up in Elmhurst and graduated from York High School. The board will hold its next regular meeting on May 22.

thank my colleagues in the Senate for swiftly passing this legislation, and I urge the House to do the same,” said Sen. Jacqueline Collins (D-Chicago), who sponsored the bill. “Many synthetic cannabinoids are already illegal, but by broadening the criteria, we ensure that they can’t be made legal by small and potentially deadly changes to their chemical formulae.” Since March, news reports throughout the Midwest have told of the use of synthetic cannabinoids – called by names like “fake weed” and “K2” – leading to deaths and severe hemorrhaging.

New bill will mandate transparency, accuracy in budget Taxpayers owe about $887M in late payment interest penalties

A bill introduced in the Illinois Senate would mandate transparency and accuracy in the governor’s annual budget proposal. State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) advanced House Bill 5814, which forces the governor’s office to record late interest payments as a separate line item in its appropriations to state agencies. This paints a clearer picture of the state’s funds and slows the depletion of funding needed to run those agencies. “As legislators, we can’t negotiate a proper budget when we don’t know how much money is owed or where it is going,” Cullerton said.

As legislators, we can’t negotiate a proper budget when we don’t know how much money is owed or where it is going.” –Sen. Tom Cullerton, D-Villa Park

Currently, most late payment interest penalties accrue at a rate of 12 percent per month for bills unpaid after 90 days, while healthcare bills accumulate interest at a rate of 9 percent after 30 days. The interest penalties are paid from the same appropriation line,

depleting the amount a state agency can spend for its operations. The bill forces the governor’s budget to include separate line item requests for prompt pay interest payments. “This practice will force all future governors to be more realistic when presenting a budget to the general assembly and public,” Cullerton said. “We need to make sure governors, whether they are republican and democrat, do not attempt to hide behind phony numbers.” The comptroller’s January 2018 Debt Transparency Report confirmed that taxpayers owe approximately $887 million in late payment interest penalties — despite the fact that over $140 million in interest penalties was paid out in calendar 2017. House Bill 5814 passed the Senate’s State Government Committee with bipartisan support and moves to the full Senate for consideration.

Tarshis was in the Chicago area visiting schools for Scholastic, a top publisher of classroom books and resources. She asked to stop at Fischer Elementary specifically, because several current and former students have written her emails about her books. While at Fischer, Tarshis spoke to students about how she became an author, despite not being a very good reader as a student herself. She also read the students a chapter from her Author Lauren Tarshis speaks to next book “I Survived the Attack of Conrad Fischer Elementary students. the Grizzlies, 1967,” which will be published in September.

EYES ARE THE WINDOWS TO YOUR HEALTH

High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Thyroid Disease, Stroke, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, High Cholesterol: These are just some of the conditions that can first present themselves in the eye before anywhere else in the body. For instance, High Blood Pressure can alter how the arteries and veins cross each other. Diabetes can present itself a couple of ways; fluctuating vision, and/or small blood spots in the back of the eye. Thyroid Disease and Multiple Sclerosis can cause changes in the Optic Nerve, and Rheumatoid Arthritis can cause an inflammation of the iris. During our exam we have technology that helps us diagnose, photograph (document), and monitor these conditions with better efficiency and accuracy. Elevated cholesterol can present itself as a white ring on the periphery of the cornea, or plaques in the back of your eye. Especially for those over 40, even though you think you see well, there may be underlying conditions that you are not aware of that can be seen during an eye examination. That is why we stress yearly exams. And now, with our new technology, annoying dilation is usually not needed. So take the time and get your eyes examined.

Normally, a tooth erupts once twothirds of its root is formed. An impacted tooth is one that fails to erupt into the by Jeffrey T. Boland dental arch within the expected time. Licensed Orthodontic Specialist When the maxillary canine teeth (popularly referred to as “eye teeth”) become impacted, it is generally due to length discrepancies in the tooth size and dental arch length, prolonged retention, early loss of the corresponding deciduous (“baby”) tooth, abnormal position of the tooth bud, tooth root and bone abnormalities, and/or other localized causes. Whatever the source, it’s important to diagnose and address the problem promptly so that the tooth can be surgically exposed and orthodontically aligned, allowing it to assume its normal position as close to its normal eruption time as possible. Crooked teeth and poor dental alignment can take many forms.

186149

The DuPage County Health Department is joining officials throughout Illinois to provide this warning to store owners, employees, and potential customers about the dangers of synthetic cannabinoids linked to an outbreak since March 7, 2018. As of May 9, 2018, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has received reports of 164 cases*, including four deaths*. Cases report using synthetic cannabinoid products before suffering from severe bleeding. Several of those affected have tested positive for brodifacoum, a lethal anticoagulant often used as a rodenticide, or rat poison. *Numbers are provisional and subject to change; IDPH will update the information every Wednesday by 1:30pm for the duration of the outbreak. The DuPage County Health Department continues to work with IDPH to investigate these cases, and has issued alerts to medical, dental, and educational professionals on the outbreak. Synthetic cannabinoids are found throughout Illinois and across the country in convenience stores, smoke shops, gas stations, individual drug dealers, or online as incense or natural herbal products. Arrests have been made in Chicago in connection with synthetic cannabinoids, and additional locations could be implicated. Synthetic cannabinoids are hundreds of different unregulated, illegal products that are manufactured

Elmhurst Clinic under reconstruction

Hospital officials recently told the Independent that Edward Elmhurst Health is currently rebuilding the Elmhurst Clinic (left) along Schiller Street, just east of Palmer Drive.. The building is going up on the site of the clinic’s former parking lot (right). Once completed, the old building will come down and that space will become a parking lot. For more than 60 years, Elmhurst Clinic has been one of the leading multi-specialty medical groups in DuPage County, providing primary care and a range of specialty care for the whole family.

Elmhurst, Oakton Community Colleges sign two transfer agreements Elmhurst College and Oakton Community College have signed two enrollment agreements that will facilitate a seamless transfer process for qualifying Oakton students to attend Elmhurst to pursue their bachelor’s degree. One agreement guarantees admission at Elmhurst for qualifying Oakton students; the other creates a dual enrollment program that will enable students to concurrently pursue an associate degree from Oakton and a bachelor’s degree from Elmhurst. “It’s all about better serving students

by determining their needs and figuring out how we, as administrators and faculty, can work together to provide opportunities for them to reach their full potential,” said Elmhurst College President Troy D. VanAken. “We’re pleased to build on our individual and institutional connections with Oakton, and welcome more Oakton students to Elmhurst.” “Today is a great day for Oakton students,” Oakton President Joianne L. Smith said during a signing ceremony held Tuesday at the Oakton campus in

Des Plaines. “The agreements make it easier for students to earn their bachelor’s degrees and allow them to take courses concurrently at both Elmhurst and Oakton at the Oakton tuition rate, saving them both time and money.” The Guaranteed Admission agreement facilitates the process for Oakton Community College students transferring to Elmhurst to complete their bachelor’s degrees. The Dual Enrollment program is open to students who have graduated from high school or have a high school

The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting database was consulted and crime reports were downloaded for the years 2010-2014 (the most recent years available) for multiple jurisdictions. This database is restricted to agencies that serve at least 10,000 people. After eliminating data for any jurisdiction that was purely “regional” (not a municipality), not present at least 3 of the 5 years, or with multiple missing entries, 3,482 towns/cities remained for analysis.

Knights boys track team preparing for sectional By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

The IC Catholic Prep girls track team will be well-represented at this weekend’s Class 1A state finals meet in Charleston. The Knights finished second at the recent Class 1A Chicago Latin School sectional in Chicago with 78 points and in the process qualified four individuals and two relays for the state meet. IC Catholic Prep’s 400 relay team qualified for state after taking second in a time of 52.78, just behind Chicago Hope Academy’s 52.59 mark. The Knights also took second in the 800 relay with a time of 1:54.24 and earned another state bid. Freshman Alia Johnson qualified in the long jump after taking second with a mark of 16-2 3/4. Sophomore Hannah Johnson was second in the triple jump at 31-10 and earned a state bid. Sophomore Olivia Slavin was second in the 100 high hurdles at 17.73 and qualified for state. Alia Johnson also won the 400 with a time of 1:04.40 and senior Kiersten King rounded out the list of state qualifiers for the Knights. She won the 200 with a time of 25.84, finishing 0.03 ahead of the second-place competitor. Earlier, the Knights took third in the Metro Suburban Conference West meet at Glenbard South. “It was our best performance of the season,” noted IC Catholic Prep

coach Bob Cronin earlier last week. King, a senior captain, won the 100 in 12.96 and also won the 200 in 26.47. The 400 relay team of Jaida Smith, Hannah Johnson, Slavin and King took second in 51.92, while the 800 relay of Slavin, Gabi Zanoni, Hannah Johnson and King placed second in 1:52.49. IC Catholic Prep was dominant in the horizontal jumps with Alia Johnson breaking the school record and taking first in the long jump with a leap of 16-8 1/2. Smith took second in the event at 16-4 1/2. In the triple jump, Hannah Johnson won the event at 33-10 1/2. Smith was third at 32-3. Alia Johnson was fourth in the 400 in 1:03.82, while Zanoni was fourth in the shot put with a throw of 30-7. IC Catholic Prep finished with 95 points, just four behind second-place Fenton (99). Glenbard South won the conference title with 122 points.

IC Catholic Prep boys track The IC Catholic Prep boys track team recently competed in the Nally Invitational at Bolingbrook. Pat Shannon was second in the 800 with a season-best 2:08.61. Sean Hipskind was third in the 300 hurdles at 43.83, while the 1,600 relay team of Justin Hall, Shannon, Casey Kristie and Hipskind took second in 3:37.74. In the shot put, Dan McCann was second with a toss of 44-4, while Michael Johnson took fifth at 40-8. Hipskind also excelled in the jumps, placing second in the long jump at 19-10 and second in the triple jump at 40-11. The Knights will compete in a Class 1A sectional Friday.

Freshman Hoogstra among bright spots for Trojans softball team By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

The Timothy Christian girls track team competed at the recent Class 1A Chicago Latin School sectional in Chicago. The Trojans took third with 60 points. The Trojans won the 3,200 relay and qualified for state with a time of 10:16.31. The Trojans also qualified for state in the 1,600 relay after taking second with a time of 4:32.79. Freshman Campbell Marshall won the high jump with a leap of 4-5. Sophomore Elise Terpstra won the triple jump with a mark of 32-3. Sophomore Hope Clark took second in the 3,200 with a time of 12:13.32. The two relay teams, Marshall, Terpstra and Clark will compete in this weekend’s Class 1A state finals meet in Charleston. Timothy Christian baseball The Timothy Christian baseball team split a pair of recent games with Elgin St. Edward and Illiana Christian. In a 14-1 win over St. Edward on senior day at Timothy where seven seniors were honored, the Trojans had 12 hits and benefitted from a 10run second inning. Harrison Stanton went 3-for-3

with three runs scored. Trent Marrera went 2-for-3 with four RBI. Jimmy Allen was 2-for-3, while Connor Gwaltney had two triples and two RBI. Jake Loerop threw four innings and allowed one run while striking out four and scattering four hits. After a month-long layoff from pitching, Marrera got back on the mound and threw a scoreless fifth inning. The game was stopped after five innings due to the 10-run rule. Timothy moved to 13-12 overall and 10-8 in Metro Suburban Conference Red Division play. Timothy also dropped a 9-7 decision to Illiana Christian. Timothy outhit Illiana 10-9. Allen had a sacrifice fly, a home run, a double, an intentional walk and four RBI. Marrera had three hits including a double, a triple and two RBI. Gwaltney had two hits and an RBI. Timothy Christian softball The Trojans softball team was 0-20 through late last week. Coach Lindsay Slovey has been impressed with the pitching efforts of Lauren Gehrke and Greta Hoogstra. “They have been working hard on the mound,” she said. “Greta has been quite an asset to us this year. As a freshman, we are looking forward to the next few years with her on the mound.”

At the plate, Liv Schuringa hit a home run over the centerfield fence. in a recent game Slovey said her young team continues to make strides. “We have been getting better, but we have not gotten a win yet,” she said. “We have started rebuilding the program, which is exciting. We have 12 freshmen who we are excited to be working with.” The Trojans continue to work on scoring more runs and cutting down on errors in the field. “We have been having a hard time scoring runs,” said Slovey. “We leave a lot of runners on base. Slovey also has been excited about the recent play of Kelly Tameling and Ally Heersink. “Kelly has done an awesome job moving around the infield,” she said. “She has been moving around from third to short and over at first. It has been great having her in the infield. Ally has done a great job for us at shortstop. It has been fun to see her play this year.” Slovey said the goal is to keep building the program. “We are looking forward to the next four years as our program continues to grow,” she said. “We are excited for the future girls coming up from eighth grade and looking forward to only getting stronger from here.”

The Timothy Christian girls soccer team concluded its season with a recent 3-1 loss to Chicago Holy Trinity in the championship game of the Class 1A Timothy Christian regional in Elmhurst. Timothy finished the year with a 9-7-1 mark. The Trojans reached the regional final after a 12-0 win over Josephinum. In that game, Emma Carter had three goals and two assists, while Maddie Schaafsma had three goals. After the Josephinum contest, Carter had 16 goals and 10 assists on the season while Schaafsma had 11 goals and four assists. “We have been working hard at providing meaningful service into the box,” said Timothy coach Jon Hamelinck late last week. “We can get to dangerous areas on the field, but we have a hard time generating more offense once we get down there. We have been doing a better job of finding feet in the box.” Hamelinck noted the Trojans were stung by the loss of Elena Munk on defense to an injured leg in a game against Illiana Christian. “That was a big loss,” he said. Hamelinck noted Celeste VanderMeer, Jana Kunz and Ellie Bradley were being looked upon to pick up the slack with Matea Cummings and Alexandra Skokos filling in for Munk. “We have looked more confident and composed when under pressure and this has been our greatest area of growth over the course of the season,” the coach said. Angel Burke has provided a steady hand in goal for the Trojans. “Angel has been pretty solid all season,” said Hamelinck. “She has had to deal with some injuries recently, but Elainy Cortes has stepped up nicely

in her absence. I was happy to get a couple of clean sheets this season because the two of them have deserved it and have kept us in games at times this season.” Hamelinck said the team continued to work on staying connected across the field. “We tend to get stretched out, which makes possession more difficult to maintain,” he said. “We’ve generated some offense off the transition, but establishing support is something we continue to work on. We also are too quick to stop trusting each other. A missed pass or a turnover and we tend to panic as opposed to playing with composure, but that is perhaps the product of a young team.” Hamelinck cited recent strong play from the likes of Scaafsma, Carter and VanderMeer. “Maddie has started to produce more consistently for us,” he said. “She got off to a slow start, but seems to have returned to form in the past six or seven games. She’s finishing more of her opportunities and being involved in the play. Emma has been a consistent player for us this season. She leads the team in goals and assists and has great game knowledge. Her communication on the field is improving as well. Celeste has grown significantly over the past couple years into a fine central defender. Her leadership and tackling ability have improved and she has good command of her back line.” Hamelinck has been pleased with the development he’s seen this season from his young team. “With a young group, starting five freshmen or more in every game this season, we have made great strides from the beginning of the year,” he said. “They have been a very coachable group and our upperclassmen have done a nice job in leading them. The exciting part is we are starting a process where most of these girls will be together for a long time. It has been a bit of a program-building year, but we have been competitive both in conference and the tournaments we have played in.”

the course of the season,” he said. “We have a number of guys who were scoring consistently by the end of the season, which is great because in the beginning we were relying on one kid to score most of our goals.” Drumm also saw progress made on the defensive front. “We’ve also greatly improved our defense,” he said. “Our shot-blocking was key in big games down the stretch and our boys have been much quicker to help

when dropping.” York goalie Gary Derwin played a key role in the team’s success this season. “Gary has stood on his head for us this season,” said Drumm. “He stopped 18 shots in our final game against Fenwick. He kept us in it.” In addition, Jay Jensen, DeGrace and Bill Dyra have been recent consistent presences in the scoring column. “Jay, Simon and Bill have figured out ways to score more con-

sistently, which has been great,” said Drumm. Drumm had high praise for his team this season. “This was the most improved team I’ve ever coached,” he said. “To come that close to beating Fenwick in the sectional final would have seemed impossible back in the first week. I was fortunate to have a great group that bought in, was committed and demonstrated an unbelievable work ethic.”

played Chicago F.W. Parker earlier this week. Earlier, the Knights were 9-0 winners against Chicago Intrinsic Charter in the regional semifinals. IC Catholic Prep led 7-0 at halftime. Olivia Hurt scored four goals in the semifinal win, while Grace Fuller had three goals. The Knights rounded out the regular season with a 4-1 Metro Suburban Conference Blue Division win against Aurora Central Catholic. Olivia Hurt had three goals, while Sophie Hurt had one goal. “The girls have been playing well,” said IC Catholic Prep coach Antonio Godinez. “They have put it together.” The Knights bring a 13-10 overall mark into the sectional. The Knights finished 3-3 in MSC Blue play with wins over ACC, Fenton and Illiana Christian. “We’re getting better in formation,” said Godinez. “We have put in

the pieces in the right place. The girls understand their responsibilities.” Godinez added the Knights also are benefitting from a stronger schedule this season. “This year the strength of schedule is a little tougher,” he said. “We’ve gone up against some good Class 3A teams. The competition has been very good and we’ve had to adjust to playing stronger teams, but that has helped us against the Class 2A and 1A teams. It’s been adapting to that strength of schedule and adapting to each other and playing together as a group.” Godinez has noticed key contributions from a variety of sources, including Olivia Hurt, who the coach noted is taking more of a role in the center midfield. “Olivia’s distribution is better,” he said. Sophomore Annie Guinan has been a key on defense. “Annie is our sweeper in the back and has helped us out tremendously,” said Godinez.

Sophie Hurt plays stopper for the Knights. “Sophie has scored three goals from that position in the last three games,” said Godinez late last week. Senior Sophie Zanoni has been a model of consistency, the coach added. “Very consistent,” he said. Olivia Hurt and Fuller are the team’s two leading scorers. “Both are in the 20s in goals scored,” said Godinez. “They score in bunches.” Overall, Godinez likes what has transpired this season. “I like seeing the growth throughout the season and the adjustments the girls have made,” he said. “This is my first year here. There have been a lot of challenges for the girls and for myself to see what we need to improve on and how we can improve in practice. The girls are training better. That’s been one of the keys to us improving because the practices have become more intense and game-like. That has helped us tremendously for the games.”

York girls lacrosse team continues having the hot hand Leonard scored nine goals during two-game stretch for York boy’s LAX

By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

The York girls lacrosse team continued its recent turnaround. The Dukes were 10-7 overall and 3-1 in West Suburban Conference play through late last week. York, ranked No. 7 in the state by laxpower.com, had won 10 of its last 12 games. York recently scored a 10-9 overtime win against Lyons Township, which was ranked No. 7 in the state at the time. The Dukes also downed St. Ignatius 12-11 and scored the game-winner

with one second left in the contest. Coach Ryan Walz noted recent strong play from goalie Issy Torres and sophomore Cate Duhig. “We had an amazing performance by Issy in the Lyons game,” he said. “Cate is a sophomore who takes our draw and is improving so much in such an important position.” Ellie Grubbs was leading the state in assists with 54 in 16 games. Duhig leads the team in goals with 38 in 17 contests. “We have a very balanced team of-

fensively and defensively,” said Walz. “We have so many great scorers and playmakers. On any given night someone new is the hero.” Kerry O’Malley, Liza Kraus, May Mann, Marie Grasse and Katie Clugg lead the way on defense. “They have been logging heavy minutes,” said Walz. Torres and Caroline Fritsch have starred in goal for the Dukes. “Both Issy and Caroline have been great,” said Walz. “They have been sharing the workload. Issy will graduate this

year and attend Division I University of New Hampshire, but we are lucky to have two very solid goalies in Caroline Fritch (a junior committed to Division I Drexel) and sophomore Sammy Kraus.” Walz had high praise for Grubbs, O’Donnell and Duhig. “Ellie, Eileen and Cate have been outstanding,” he said. “In my opinion, Ellie is one of the best playmakers I’ve seen. She leads all Illinois players in assists. She reads the field so well. She looks to make the best play unselfishly and sees cutters and reads the defense so well.” Walz said his team now heads into an extremely challenging sectional. “We are heading into the playoffs in one of the most challenging sectionals in the state,” he pointed out. “Four of the seven teams in our sectional typically are ranked in the top 8 in the state, including what many consider Hinsdale Central as the favorite to win the state championship. Due to the move to IHSA and their geographical playoff system, it will be a bigger challenge than the ranking system we have gotten used to, such as the top team plays the lower-ranked teams. Now, in order to make the Elite 8 in state for the fourth year in a row we have to beat some of the best teams in the state just to get

out of our sectional. We are up for the challenge and we seem to always excel when we face tough competition.”

York boys lacrosse The York boys lacrosse team was 9-9-1 overall and 3-2 in the West Suburban Conference through late last week. In recent times, York lost 11-9 to Glenbrook North and also defeated St. Ignatius 11-4. David Leonard had five goals against Glenbrook North and four goals against St. Ignatius. Billy Paschen had two goals and two assists against St. Ignatius. Leonard was leading the team in scoring with 45 goals and 22 assists. Joe Chornij had 13 goals and five assists. York coach Don Canfield also had high praise for goalie Artie Renier. “We have been up and down with our play of late,” said Canfield. “We are coming off a great game against St. Ignatius in which we dominated all aspects of the game. If we can continue to play like that, I am confident we will continue to have success.” York faces St. Rita this week before playing its sectional semifinal contest against Benet Academy on May 21 at York.

second-fastest time was 9:26.82. That team included Sarah May, sophomore Lydia Hickey, senior Katherine Tomaska and sophomore Emma Kern. York also was one of seven teams to qualify for state in the 1,600 relay. The Dukes had a state time of 4:03.79 with sophomore Isabella Walker, freshman Sydney Malaga, sophomore Marissa Chavez and Hickey. Individually, sophomore Zoe Clark was one of nine athletes to

qualify for state in the long jump out of Wheaton-Warrenville South. Clark finished with a mark of 17-6. Freshman Lilly Curry was one of six to qualify in the high jump. She finished fourth at 5-2. Senior Molly Evans is headed to state after taking fifth in the triple jump with a state mark of 36-4 1/2. Evans was one of eight to make it to state out of the sectional in that event. May, a junior, was fourth in the 1,600 and also earned a state berth. She finished in 5:06.64.

TC’s Seth Buikema 3rd in nation at National Geography Bee

When Seth Buikema was a fourth grade student at Timothy, he stood on the Huizenga stage and proudly accepted his first Championship medal at the annual Geography Bee. However, his geography competition journey was just beginning. He was declared elementary school champion again in 6th grade, going on to win the middle school Geography Bee. This qualified him to represent Timothy at the next level of competition, which was a written test. He did well and qualified for the National Geographic State Bee, held at College of DuPage, where he placed 7th in the State. This was the highest finish ever by a Timothy student in this competition. He continued his winning ways with another champion medal in 7th grade, making it to the semi-finals at State.

In 8th & 9th grade, he qualified at the Jr. Varsity level for the U.S. Geography Olympiad & International Geography Bee. As a sophomore, he qualified at the Varsity level at the same competition and finished 19th in the nation. That brings us to his junior year and this past weekend where Buikema won 3rd place out of the 150 participants at the U.S. National Championships of the International Geography Bee, held in Washington D.C. He scored 90% on the qualifying test, which earned him a chance to compete at the IGB World Championships in Berlin this July. His 3rd place prize included a scholarship to make the trip. This geography whiz, who is the son of Paul & Angela Buikema, is also currently involved with Scho-

lastic Bowl, Trumpet, Chapel Band, National Honor Society and Spanish National Honor Society. According to his parents, Seth has had an interest in maps since before he could read. When he started at Timothy his Impact teacher, Mrs. Ann Bakker, picked up on his interest and found ways to challenge and encourage him at school. From 4th grade winner of the Geo Bee in the Huizenga Auditorium to 3rd in the country…that’s what we call a success story!

He wears a red scarf, aviator hat and goggles instead of a cape, mask and tights, but one thing is certain—Snoopy has superhero status for the masses of fans who have followed the antics of the WWI aviator for decades. Of all the Peanuts characters, perhaps the most charismatic and endearing is Snoopy as the World War I Flying Ace, a beagle WHAT: “Snoopy transformed into the high-flying nemesis of the notorious Red Baron. and the Red Charles M. Schulz created this iconic character, which made its Baron” comic strip debut in 1965, inspired WHERE: Elmhurst by his young son’s obsession with model airplanes. This most famous History Museum, of all of the Snoopy personas continues to bring humor and 120 E. Park Ave., nostalgic joy to Peanuts fans all over Elmhurst the world to this day. The story of the development WHEN: Through of the Flying Ace is chronicled in “Snoopy and the Red Baron,” a June 17 new national traveling exhibition organized and toured by the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa, CA. The exhibit is on display at the Elmhurst History Museum, located at 120 E. Park Ave. in downtown Elmhurst, through June 17, 2018. As evidenced by the many enthusiastic devotees who made their way to Elmhurst to see the exhibit over the past two months, Snoopy has many admirers and broad appeal. The exhibit shares the development of one of Schulz’s most popular storylines, a persona that Schulz created after detailed World War I research to bring authenticity to the character. The exhibit features high resolution reproductions of Schulz’s original comic strip artwork, photos, film clips, collectibles and ephemera inspired by Snoopy as the Flying Ace—from toys and model airplanes to books, figurines, and more. A photo opportunity next to Snoopy’s doghouse awaits visitors where they can try on aviator goggles, caps and scarves to stage fun photos. Throughout the decades, Snoopy comically embraced his fighter pilot role for delighted Peanuts readers. Snoopy envisioned himself soaring through the clouds in pursuit of the infamous Red Baron as he traversed Europe, stopping in cafés to drink root beer and flirt with French mademoiselles. Schulz’s attention to detail and authenticity is especially clear in his Flying Ace storylines. During the run of the exhibit, the Elmhurst History Museum staff was pleased to receive a pertinent loan from a private collector: a uniform that belonged to Royal Air Force (RAF) captain and Canadian WWI ace Arthur Roy Brown circa 1918. Brown was credited by the RAF for being the pilot who helped to bring down the Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen, on April 21, 1918. The uniform has insignias for the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Canadian Naval Aviation eagle. This impressive artifact is currently on display in the Snoopy exhibit in the first floor gallery. The “Snoopy and the Red Baron” exhibit will move on in its national tour after June 17, 2018, so be sure to see it before it closes.

The poetry of several students at Hawthorne Elementary was selected to be published in an anthology, “A Celebration of Poets, 2018,” published by Creative Communication. Creative Communication is a company that aims to promote writing and inspire student writers. They have been holding a student writing contest for 20 years and each year, the top 45% of writers as identified by judges will be invited to have their work published. The poems were written as part of the fourth and fifth grade REACH program. The fourth grade poems

were all written as Shakespearean sonnets, while the fifth graders’ were based on the REACH program’s themes this year. All the poems include at least one poetic element (such as simile, metaphor, alliteration, etc.), that the students had studied during the year. The students whose works were selected for publishing include: JR Barz, Gabe Boutin, Ryker Harges, George Redfearn, Alex Sjullie, Julian Dominguez, Libby Donaldson, Jamie Fulco, Maeve Gibbs, Alexa Klein, Zhihanna Liu, Rachel Manganaro, Kailin Mendiola, Josephine

Roubitchek, Saveen Shah and Aidan Soule. The REACH program at Hawthorne is taught by Geri Sorrentino. Hawthorne will receive a copy of the published anthology this summer and will keep it at the school library for students and their families to check out. All the students who were selected to have their work published are also eligible to win a $50 savings bond from Creative Communication, if they are selected as one of the top ten published poets nationally in grades four through six. Those students will be selected over the summer.
