Over $37 million set for storm water projects over five-year period By Dan McLeister For The Elmhurst Independent
ELMHURST — In the latest five-year Capital Expenditure Budget (CEB), more than $37 million has been designated for storm water related projects, City Manager Jim Grabowski reported to City Council. “That is a big piece of the pie,” he said at an August 17th meeting. Alderman Jim Kennedy (6th Ward), chairman of the Public Works and Buildings (PWB) Committee, spoke up about looking beyond the five-year plan. “We have to prepare ourselves for a figure that could be somewhere around $100 million,” he said. “We need to come up with a plan on how to proceed over X number of years.” The latest five-year plan has increased to $130,238,800 from $97,142,100 over the five-year period. Grabowski said reasons for the increase include: Significant construction cost increases; Additional projects rolling on to the plan;
Some carryover projects from the current year. Capital Improvement Fund (CIF) revenues for 2016 through 2020 are projected to increase by 2.5 percent annually in Home Rule Sales Tax and in State Income Tax and by
one percent annually in Telecommunications Tax amounts. The City official noted that the proposed budget does not take into consideration any revenue change as a result of Illinois General Assembly action. “At this time it is very unclear
to what if anything may happen,” Grabowski said. If the General Assembly were to decrease municipal funding, reconsideration of expenses and/or consideration of new or increased revenue would be necessary, he said. The five-
year CEB anticipates issuing long term debt (bonds or loans) in 2016, 2017 and 2018 for financing storm water management projects and improvements in the Wastewater Treat-

Man found dead on Ike near Hillside By Dee Longfellow For The Elmhurst Independent
ELMHURST — On Monday, August 24, a man who was found dead along I-290 near Hillside last week was identified, according to the Cook County medical examiner. According to police, LaShawn Williams, 22, of Plainfield, was discovered on Wednesday, August 19 at about 3 p.m. on eastbound I-290 near Wolf Road. Illinois State Police said Williams had
likely been struck early that same morning. He was pronounced dead at the scene just after 3:30 p.m. The mainline ramp from St. Charles at Wolf Road on I-290 eastbound was closed until about 6 p.m. Two tornadoes hit DuPage According to the National Weather Service, two tornadoes touched down in DuPage County last week. An E-0 tornado stayed on the ground Tuesday, Aug. 18 for three miles, from far southeastern
Naperville to Woodridge. An E-0 rating is the weakest on a 0-to-5 scale, with winds topping 70 to 80 mph. A second E-0 tornado developed later that same evening in Downers Grove but it was only on the ground for about a quarter-mile, reports said. Vote expected on County Board’s lobbyists On Tuesday, August 25, the DuPage County Board was scheduled to vote on continuing its contracts with four different lobbying firms at a
cost of $284,000 per year. The firms work at the state and national level to promote the County’s legislative agenda. Working with state legislators on behalf DuPage are two firms, All-Circo Inc. and V.A. Persico Consulting Inc. The firm McGuire Woods Consulting, represents the County Board as well as the DuPage County Health Department in Springield.

taxpayers. We want to help, we want to be part of the solution.”
ELMHURST — Grassy bowls and open space – that was the vision put in the heads of those who attended the August 13th meeting of the intergovernmental Communications Committee (CommComm) for storm water storage. There was even some talk of Frisbee golf. Mayor Steve Morley invited Park District Executive Director Jim Rogers and District 205 School Board member and Policy Committee Chair John McDonough to offer updates before the discussion began. McDonough described the District 205 School Board’s mission statement, then mentioned a new initiative called Focus205, developed to gather public input. The first of four community forums will be held Wednesday, September 2 from 7-9 p.m. in the York High School Commons. “The Board is seeking input from community members regarding the next generation of learning, future-ready classrooms, and other key topics in order to provide the best educational experience possible,” he said. Valuable information will be gathered at those sessions, but because the process is just beginning, the School Board feels it will know more about how the public feels after receiving its input, according to McDonough. “We will know more later than we know now,” he said, “and that’s why we proceed with caution. “That being said, those affected by flooding are our families, too. [The students] miss classes during flooding, and virtually all of [those families] are our
School Board shares three principles McDonough said the School Board had met as a CommitteeOf-The-Whole to discuss the Intergovernmental agreement (IGA) and had identified three principles for him to bring back to the Comm-Comm: Safety first. “We provide services to children, so our #1 principle is safety.” District 205 will offer the property if the City agrees to cover all costs, all liability and all risk. The land comes with no rent or fees, so the City should pay for any costs. “The use of the land has to be terminable in a meaningful way. It has to have substance to the right of termination.” Mayor Morley thanked the audience for being there, reminding them that “the intent when we made these meetings public was to be upfront about our goal: What do we need to do to get a shovel in the ground and when is our next meeting?” He showed slides of the areas where the projects are planned or already underway. The slides indicated the exact places underground where the storm water would be contained. Morley assured that once sod, the sites would be like “grassy bowls,” perfect for Frisbee golf. There are five areas listed in the IGA: The “Tree Street” project along Walnut, Myrtle, Evergreen, etc., where flooding mitigation has already begun, thanks to an IGA with DuPage County, which owns the quarry. The quarry’s sole purpose is to contain Salt Creek and keep it in its banks. “DuPage County
The next Stormwater Communications Committee Meeting is Thursday, August 27 at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers at Elmhurst City Hall has allowed us to dump some of our storm water there,” Morley said. “From beginning to end, it only took about six months to get that done through the County Board, thanks to [Board member] Paul Fichtner, who is a resident. It’s now called the Tree Street project.” Pine and Avon Sts., by Golden Meadows Park. Survey and geotechnical work is done. York Commons. Survey and geotechnical work is done, Burke is working on engineering drawings, so shovels can be put in the ground as soon as possible. “York Commons will be done next summer for sure,” Morley said. York & I-290. Morley said they hope do complete a survey soon and send it out to bid in September. St. Charles Road near Sandburg Middle School, where it enters 290. Final engineering is being done there as well. In the ensuing discussion, it became clear that Crestview Park was an area that should be moved up the list, but the Park District had yet to assess the situation there. Not being one of the five projects listed above, Crestview Park is not included with those specified in the IGA. That raised the next question. To implement or to consider? Jim Rogers assured everyone there was nothing he wanted more than to move forward
with the IGA, but there was one sticky wicket. As it is currently worded, the IGA has all five projects included so, to agree to the IGA is to agree to those five projects – no more, no less. The exact verbiage reads: “Whereas, the City of Elmhurst and the Elmhurst Park District agree to implement the agreement at all five park storm water detention sites.” Rogers said the first version of the IGA received by the Park District referred only to “certain sites owned by the Elmhurst Park District.” The second version had the five specific sites listed. “We would prefer the word ‘consider’ to ‘implement,’” Rogers said. He said the reason had to do with the agreement locking onto those five projects listed. What if they wanted to make changes? “We’re already talking about Crestview Park as a new place to consider,” he said, “but we wouldn’t want to just throw it in there. No Park Board Commissioner is going to agree to ‘implement’ something in the future on a property we haven’t even looked at yet.” Space does not allow more coverage of this meeting, but interested residents can watch it in its entirety on the City’s youtube channel.

Marshall, ‘Marshall’s Miracle’ appear at York Theatre Friday Story of abused canine turned therapy dog to be motion picture
ELMHURST — Area children will have the opportunity to both view the premier of Marshall’s Miracle at the York Theatre on Friday, August 28 at 7 p.m. as well as meet the star of the show, Marshall at 6 p.m. A rescue dog who lost a front leg, carries a deep scar on his face and emotional scars on his heart due to abuse, Marshall is now an AKC certified therapy dog, who has presented to more than 120,000 students in 370 schools. Cynthia Willenbrock, Marshall’s present owner, wrote his story, which is being released this month as a major motion picture. Inspired by Marshall’s true story, Marshall’s Miracle shares the adventure of Finn, a 13-year-old boy, who has become the target of bullies at his new school. Finn is feeling hopeless – that is, until he finds Marshall being caged up by a dog-hoarder in deplorable conditions. The bond of friendship is immediate. Finn knows he must
If You Go... What: Marshall’s Miracle Where: York Theatre When: Friday, Aug. 28, 7 p.m. rescue Marshall, but Marshall has been abused by the other dogs and needs to see the vet right away. The race against the bullies, against the dog hoarder, and against time, is on. In the end, Marshall leads everyone to a place of change, forgiveness and friendship. Thanks go to the Kanzler family of Elmhurst and the Elmhurst Commission on Youth for this opportunity. Carina Kanzler is a sophomore at York High School and was a former Hawthorne Elementary and Sandburg Middle School student. Her uncle, Jay Kanzler, is the producer and director of Marshall’s Miracle. More about the movie Dogs really can be humans greatest teachers and the release of the Family Film, Marshall’s Miracle, in theaters August 28 is proof. The real inspiration behind the movie, Marshall the Miracle Dog, will be making a special appearance at the premiere of his film. The producers of Marshall’s Miracle were espe-

However, Grabowski noted that the revenue in the CIF is not sufficient to support the debt service payments for the bonds necessary to fund the anticipated flood mitigation/ storm water management projects. “Short of an alternate revenue [source] or an increase in a current revenue, the bond debt service payment for the storm water management projects are proposed to be funded by property tax,” he said. The City Manager said staff is always searching for other
funding options to help shoulder the burden away from property tax. One of the City Council’s strategic goals is a review of alternative revenue sources. “With some time for staff to gather this information, we stand ready to discuss alternatives with the Finance, Council affairs and Administrative Services Committee,” Grabowski assured. The final CEB will be incorporated with the 2016 twoyear operating budget and distributed to the City Council on or before October 26.
We have to prepare ourselves for a figure that could be somewhere around $100 million. We need to come up with a plan on how to proceed over X number of years.” — Alderman Jim Kennedy
cially thrilled to premiere Marshall’s Miracle in Chicago considering so much the films talent was found there. Comedian and WGN Radio host Patti Vasquez as well as numerous youth stars of the film will be at the premiere of the film for pictures and signing autographs. But, to ensure Marshall’s Miracle’s important messages of kindness towards humans and animals are sustained, reps from Elmhurst Commission on Youth and the AntiCruelty Society will be there to meet and greet and share their messages with the audience. Marshall was found near death in a deplorable hoarding situation in Marshall, Missouri. He proves after dying three times on the Humane Society’s operating table, that he has a greater purpose to serve in his life. Now a certified therapy dog, Marshall carries his messages of Empathy, Perseverance and Forgiveness and has visited more than 370 schools (120,000 students) since the launch of his award winning children’s book in 2012. Not only has his life’s journey inspired a major motion film, Marshall’s Miracle, his messages are sustained through the Marshall Mentor Program, an anti-bullying school program based on Marshall’s cornerstone lessons. 216251
Marshall’s Miracle received the Audience Choice Award for Best Film at the St. Louis International Film Festival. During pre-release, the film was also awarded “Best Family Film” at the Wild Rose Film Festival; the St. Louis Post Dispatch hailed it as the “Best Family Film” in 2014. The Dove Foundation awarded the film “4 out of
5 Doves,” and approved the film for all ages. The film stars Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie), Lauren Holly (NCIS, Dumb and Dumber), Matthew Settle (Gossip Girl, Band of Brothers), and award-winning comedian Bill Chott, as well as Lucas Carroll (The Informant). Trailer http://vimeo. com/108093075
SCSD receives state grant for new energy-saving technology Department of Commerce, Economic Opportunity provide almost $180,000
VILLA PARK — The heart of a wastewater treatment facility is the aeration system. Air is bubbled through fine pore diffusers in aeration tanks. In the aeration tanks, air is used by a culture of bacteria to sustain their metabolic processes, which converts the organic suspended waste found in the sewage into innocuous compounds like carbon dioxide, nitrate, and water. The Salt Creek Sanitary District (SCSD) recently commissioned a new high-speed turbo blower to replace an aged centrifugal blower to provide air to the aeration system. The new turbo blower operates at varying speeds – up to 20,000 rpm -- to meet the air required
by the bacteria to stabilize the waste. SCSD received a grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity in the amount of $179,150 to implement this energy saving technology. The total cost of the project was $312,720.10. The electrical savings resulting from the project will be approximately $40,000 per year resulting in a simple payback of the SCSD cash outlay of three years and four months. The Board and Management of SCSD are committed to the mission of cost effectively protecting the water environment. Members of the Board of Trustees include William P. Dewyer, president; Dennis C. Keating, vice-president; and Raymond E. Hensley, clerk. District Management includes James Listwan, manager; Debbie Seaton, business administrator; Walter E. Deuchler Associates, Inc., consulting engineers; and Robert T. C. Kay, attorney.

Civics education returns to high schools ELMHURST — On August 21, civics became law in the Land of Lincoln. A standalone civics semester will be required at all Illinois public high schools, starting with the Class of 2020. The Citizen Advocacy Center (CAC), located in Elmhurst, has been a tenacious advocate for bringing civics back to Illinois public schools and played a role in its successful outcome. “Civic education is core to the work of CAC as community lawyers routinely answer basic information about the structure and function of government,” said CAC Executive Director Maryam Judar. “In addition, CAC community lawyers have worked with schools for over two decades to help teachers convert classrooms and communities into civic labs. “On behalf of CAC, I would like to acknowledge the partners and collaborators who played a leading role in the effort to bring civics back to Illinois public high schools.” DuPage County Regional Superintendent Darlene Ruscitti has been a longtime advocate for civic
education through supporting civic efforts throughout DuPage County, including the convening of two countywide Civic Summits for high school students and advocating for the passage of the “Year of Civic Engagement” Resolution by the DuPage County Board. Former Attorney General Jim Ryan who established the Center for Civic Leadership at Benedictine University, is a vocal advocate for civic education of youth, and was pivotal in the creation of Illinois’ Legislative Task Force on Civic Education charged with assessing the current state of civics in Illinois. Shawn Healy, Civic Learning & Engagement Scholar at the McCormick Foundation and Chair of both the Task Force and the Illinois Civic Mission Coalition, is a champion for high quality civic education for all Illinois students, the promotion of the Democracy Schools program, and has been indefatigable in his efforts to strengthen civic education.

Continued from page 6 When the complainant ran the suspect’s credit card for the $500 deposit, it was declined. The suspect then entered a maroon-colored van and left the scene. Once the suspect left, the complainant remembered that he received an email from a rental company in Chicago to be on the lookout for the same suspect who stole a sod cutter. Aug. 16 • Perla Godoy-Caleriano, 41, of Bensenville, was arrested at a store in the 200 block of S. Route 83 at around 2:33 p.m. A victim accidentally left some items she had purchased in the store’s parking lot. When the victim returned for the items, police said a witness stated that he observed Godoy-Caleriano take the items and load them into her vehicle. Contact was made with the suspect, who was charged with theft of lost/ mislaid property. • Fraud was reported at a food store in the 600 block of N. York at around 5:43 p.m. A victim told police that he accidentally left his wallet in a shopping cart after loading groceries into his vehicle.

Aug. 15 • Richard Coleman, 57, of Wheaton, was arrested in the 100 block of W. First St. at around 7:36 p.m. A victim told
police that while at the train depot, he had set his iPhone 6 on the ground next to his camera equipment so he could take pictures of a passing train. When he went to retrieve the phone, it was missing. The victim used another phone to call his, and it rang while in Coleman’s pocket, according to police. Coleman was charged with theft and for violation of the Railroad Intoxicating Liquor Act. • Police responded to a department store in the 200 block of S. Route 83 at around 5:09 p.m. The store reported that an employee was given a counterfeit $100 bill by a suspect, described as a black male, about 25 years old, wearing a black flat brim hat, a red Nike “Just Do It” T-shirt, black pants and black Nike shoes. The employee gave the suspect change. A second suspect, described as a black male, approximately 20 years old wearing a white T-shirt, black shorts, a silver watch and work boots, then grabbed the merchandise and the change ($66.43) and left the store. During the investigation, an officer was advised that a food store in the same area had a similar occurrence. In this instance, an employee contacted a supervisor at the checkout counter because the store’s counterfeit pen showed a $100 bill to be counterfeit. According to police, the suspect who also attempted to give the food store a counterfeit $100 bill is the same suspect who
attempted to give the department store a counterfeit $100 bill. The suspect was advised by the food store that the bill was counterfeit; he became upset and left the store. There were a total of three suspects (there was no description of the third suspect) that left the area in gray vehicle. An investigation is pending. • Police said three black male suspects were observed exiting a food store in the 900 block of S.

ulent transaction in the amount of $400. They were located and found to be in possession of several counterfeit credit cards and fraudulent IDs, according to police. Both were charged with unlawful possession of altered or counterfeit credit card and possession of a fictitious or unlawfully altered card. • A victim in the 300 block of W. Fremont told police that he has been using an online computer cleaning service for approximately one year. The victim stated that an unknown male from the service called his house and stated that the service’s system crashed and they would refund his $1,000 for services rendered, but they would need his bank account information. The victim was then informed that they sent too much money and he would need to send back $800 through Money Gram. The total amount lost was $809.50. July 19 A victim in the 100 block of N. Evergreen and his mother came to the police department, and told police that the victim’s father—the woman’s exhusband—convinced the victim to open up a credit card to work on his credit score. The victim opened the card on the above date, but never received it. The victim received a statement from the credit card company for $651.33, which the victim said he didn’t charge.

Pesky First Amendment cuts both ways
here has been a great deal of controversy during the past few weeks over a piece published by The Independent written by columnist Leslie Leader, in which she offended a great number of people, primarily for having called them “complainers.” Numerous people wrote to the publisher, flabbergasted that we would publish such a thing. One person referred to Leslie as though she were a news reporter, which is not the case – she is a columnist on the Viewpoint page. Many letters were published, others appeared on our website, (theindependentnewspapers.com), still others simply wanted Leslie to know how they felt, not necessarily publish their comments to the public. Let me point out that the Viewpoint page is just that – a person’s “Viewpoint.” It’s one of the foundations of our nation’s First Amendment, which guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of the
Under my father’s fedora... Dee Longfellow
Editor press. It was a key component of the standards set forth at the beginning of this country we call America by our Founding Fathers. The point is, the Viewpoint page is not news, it is opinion. It is the page where people can say virtually whatever they wish, provided it is not slanderous. Therefore, all of Leslie’s columns are her opinion, her point of view, her Viewpoint, hence they do not contain factual news per se, just her thoughts on various topics. Truth is, we LIKE to receive
letters because it means people out there are not only reading but also thinking. A “big response” to an issue in the paper may generate three or four letters – yes, that’s considered a big response – however, this issue brought more than 20. As far as those who were offended by her use of the word “complainers,” I understand how that may have bothered people and why some were calling for an apology from her and/or from us, the newspaper. However, no one need apologize for an opinion. There are many jokes about opinions, such as, “When I want your opinion, I’ll tell you what it is,” or “I appreciate your opinion, even though it’s wrong.” The joke is, there’s really no such thing as a “wrong” or “bad” opinion. It follows that you can offer any opinion you wish in this country (again, as long as it is not slanderous) without fear of reprisal. (It should be noted there
Vietnam Wall site to be renovated, made more visible, vets say
lmost 27 years ago, September 8-14, 1988, a miracle occurred right here in the City of Elmhurst! A coalition of veterans organizations along with the Elmhurst Park District, the City of Elmhurst, and many concerned citizens, came together to bring the half-scale model of “The Moving Wall” to Wilder Park. It was a half-scale model of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, DC. The purpose for bringing it to Elmhurst was to honor the 14 young men from Elmhurst, who had fought and died in service to our country during a long and bitter struggle in southeast Asia. What actually happened was more than we could have imagined. Many tears were shed, many friendships were formed, and, for many friends and family of these 14 and so many others, closure was found. Teachers brought their Elementary School classes to let them experience some history
and discovered that some of their students had family members who had served and that some of those names were on that Wall. Many of these young students are now raising their own children here in Elmhurst and some have gone on to serve this country during more recent conflicts. We thank them for their service! When the visit of “The Wall” ended, and all bills were paid, there was still some money left over, so it was decided to use that money to erect a monument in Wilder Park. Through the generosity of the family of one of these heroes, a tree was planted at the exact location of the apex of the panels. Then a Memorial Plaque was set, flush with ground in front of the tree. Now some 27 years later, the beautiful Ginko tree has become a stately specimen, overlooking a weathered and somewhat worn, scratched, and nicked up, but no less meaningful memorial.
It is our intention to provide and install a granite base that would raise this plaque approximately 30” above the ground so that it can be seen from a distance and bring visitors to it. There are costs associated with this effort, of course, and some funds have already been raised. Our goal is to raise $10,025, which is the total actual cost of this work. We also want to have this work completed so that there can be a re-dedication of this monument on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2015. Also, the monument company needs about eight to 10 weeks to complete the work. Please help us to get this done! Donations may be sent to the Elmhurst American Legion, for the benefit of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Rehabilitation. Thank you! Kevin Caulkins George McGuire THB Post 187 American Legion Elmhurst
was a mistake in the column – Leslie’s column indicated that only 18 people had attended the meeting in question when in fact, it was a packed house -- 18 was the number of people spoke during public forum.) It often boils down to how things are said, versus what is said. I’ve said on these pages before – you can’t legislate common courtesy. Maybe that’s what it was – a lack of common courtesy. It seems people were more upset about being called “complainers” than anything else. Just remember the old say-
ing, “While I may disagree with your point, I will defend to the death your right to say it.” While a columnist may be able to say anything she wishes, even if it is offensive, only in America does a citizen have a right to write his or her own opinion back to the writer – and have it published as well. So I may be able say anything I want about you – as long as it’s my opinion (and it’s not slanderous) – but then you can turn around and say anything you want about me. It cuts both ways. Pesky amendment.
Why is it? Things that make you say hmmm
e live in a quirky, weird, sideways, upside-down world where some things just don‘t make sense – or they make too much sense to be sensible. As humans we often perpetuate the nonsense. We accept things for what they are and go about our business without question. But sometimes I wonder. About small things. Big things. Random things like: Why do cats have to race you up the stairs? They can come out of nowhere just to get one step ahead of you. Sometimes my cats pause to let me nearly catch up before bounding upwards to beat me. Again. When shopping online why are we required to put certain items in our cart in order to see their price while other items have their prices posted prominently? If it’s a seedless watermelon, what did it grow from? Why do we call them red cabbage and red onions when it’s obvious they are purple? Red grapes are more burgundy than red. Purple potatoes are actually purple – score one for the spuds. When the batteries on the TV remote go dead why do we continue to press the power button over and over hoping they will suddenly come to life? The same phenomenon occurs when our cell phone loses its charge. Ditto that for the computer mouse. Change the AAs,

already! Have you ever noticed that abbreviated is an awfully long word? And big is not? Other words are worth contemplating – phonetically speaking. Gynecologist is a doctor for women. Hysterectomy is a procedure performed solely on women. Hershey is word made up of two female pronouns coming together to make chocolate. I guess that last one makes perfect sense. In the same vein, if words like “he” and “she” are pronouns, does that also make them anti-verbs? Why do we call it the funny bone when bumping it is certainly no laughing matter? When I am driving somewhere and get lost why do I turn the radio off thinking it will help me find my destination? Why do people drive around in convertibles with the top down, but the windows up? Do they call it falling asleep because of the falling dream

Chamber to present ‘Good Works’ award to DiCianni Networking on the 9’s tees off Friday, Aug. 28
ELMHURST — Peter “Pete” DiCianni of Elmhurst will be honored as the 2015 recipient of the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s Good Works Award presented during the luncheon at the Chamber’s 67th Annual Golf Outing held at Sugar Creek Golf Course in Villa Park on Friday, August 28. The 16th Good Works Award recipient, DiCianni is president and CEO of DiCianni Graphics in Addison, the creativeprinting-marketing firm that he founded in 1985 and a Chamber member since 2000. The award is being given to DiCianni “for his contributions to the betterment of the Elmhurst business community through 15 years of support for the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce and Industry, including two terms as Board of Directors member, his public service as Mayor of Elmhurst and District 2 member on the DuPage County Board, his charitable and philanthropic work with numerous not-for-profit orga-
nizations advocating on behalf of seniors, children and those with disabilities, and his personal and business support of the Chamber Golf Outing.” “Pete has been among the most supportive members during my time at the helm of the Elmhurst Chamber as an individual, as a businessman, as a community activist and as an elected official,” said John Quigley, Chamber President and CEO. “Pete does his own brand of marketing,” said Dee Longfellow, current Chairman of the Board of ECCI. “Some people think he just does the printing for organizations, but he does much more behind the scenes, including at the Chamber. His efforts make a real difference.” Presented annually at the Chamber Golf Outing since 2000, the Good Works Award honors the memory of the late Chamber President, A.J. “Toche” Terrones, who led the Chamber for nearly 10 years until his death the night before the 1999 Golf Outing. DiCianni Graphics has been a major golf outing sponsor for the past 10 years, one of
only three members so committed, and previously worked as a Chamber partner on both the annual Elmhurst Community Directory and biennial Elmhurst Street Map. As Elmhurst’s Mayor from 2009-13, DiCianni supported the City’s partnership with the Chamber to develop and implement the “Got It! in Elmhurst” shop local informational campaign, which debuted in the fall of 2011. DiCianni resigned as Mayor in 2013 to become one of
three County Board members representing District 2, which includes all of Elmhurst. Among his numerous charitable causes are the Elmhurst Children’s Assistance Foundation (ECAF), Metropolitan Family Services of DuPage, Center for Speech and Language Disorders (CSLD) and Ray Graham Association. Past recipients include Chairman of the Board William C. “Bill” Gooch Jr. (2015) of Community Bank of Elmhurst; Attorney Scott Levin of Howard (2013) of Howard and Howard; Chamber Executive Assistant Barb Savage (2012); Cathy Bajkowski (2011) of CB Health Insurance; Office manager/paralegal Julie Miller (2010) of Patrick T. Sheehan & Associates; Longtime Chamber volunteer Ralph Pechanio (2009); Retired banker Frank Vitelli (2008); Former building contractor Paul DeMichele (2007); Chamber Retention Coordinator Jerry Sletten (2006); The mortgage team of Frank Catalano Jr. and Debra Klos-
terman (2005); Retired business executive and Membership Vice President Howard Schreiber (2004); Retired banker John Wartinbee (2003); Then Elmhurst Mayor Thomas D.

“Mayslake is a beloved cultural and historical gem in DuPage County,” said Forest Preserve District Commissioner Jeff Redick, District. 2. “A restored and improved Mayslake will be an important tool in introducing people to nature through the arts.” The Board of Commissioners approved hiring Renaissance Restoration Inc. of Galena to do the work for $634,614.

After his death in 1922, Peabody’s family sold the estate to the Franciscan Order of the Friars Minor, Province of the Sacred Heart and the hall became a retreat house. Over time, the order sold off sections of the estate, eventually selling the last remaining acres, including Mayslake Hall, a friary and the Portiuncula Chapel, to the Forest Preserve District in 1993 after voters approved the purchase by referendum.

Jack Island receives ECAF’s ‘Friend of the Children’ award Another successful event raising funds for local charity By Dee Longfellow For The Elmhurst Independent
n Friday, August 21, it was an absolutely perfect day outside for golf, especially at White Pines Golf Club in Bensenville, where the Elmhurst Children’s Assistance Foundation (ECAF) held its annual golf outing. In addition to a day on the links, the event served to honor Jack Island, owner of Silverado Grill, who was bestowed ECAF’s “Friend of the Children” award for 2015. After golf and dinner, Master of Ceremonies Michael Burroughs, current president of the ECAF Board of Directors, joined Kevin Diamond and other committee members to present raffle prizes and golf awards. Then Charity Ahlgrim was introduced to present the award to Island. Both have been friends for a long time, even before the beginning of the Silverado Jr. project. The project provides a class at Lincoln School to “lease” the restaurant for one evening and reap the profits. After the first few years of doing it on his own, Jack

enlisted Charity in her role at Community Bank of Elmhurst who met with the children, reviewed their “business plans” and granted the “loan” for the lease.
Charity Ahlgrim gets a big hug from Jack Island, the 2015 recipient of ECAF’s Friend of the Children award, after introducing him and sharing his accomplishments with the room. Ahlgrim and Island have worked closely for more than 20 years on the Lincoln School “Silverado Jr.” project, during which Island “leases” the restaurant for one night to the students who take over for one night and reap the profits.
“We have to explain words like ‘collateral’ to the students,” Jack said with a laugh. All in all, it was a successful evening and, although it is too early to tabulate the finances,
the Independent will bring the results of the evening’s fundraising in a future issue. ECAF’s next outing will be its 2nd annual Oktoberfest on Thursday, October 8 from
7-11 p.m. at Wilder Mansion. Tickets are $30 per person and guests must be 21 or older to attend. For more information, visit ecaf4kids.org.

Visitation School dedicates new science program Parent donation funds STEM-based St. Albert the Great Curriculum By Jean Lawrence For The Elmhurst Independent
chools throughout the country are upgrading their science programs to reflect the growing importance of STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – in preparing students for the jobs of the future. Visitation Catholic School is no exception. Five years ago, a group of parents donated the funds to construct a brand new state-of-the-art science lab. And this summer, another Visitation family made a donation that will underwrite significant enhancements to the school’s science program.
}We gave our support
because we believe in the mission of the school and want to see it excel.”

On August 18, Visitation School dedicated a new STEM-based science program with a reception including Fr. Belmonte, Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Joliet, Visitation Pastor Fr. Scott Huggins, Visitation Principal Dr. Chris Dransoff, science teacher Mrs. Jackie Osterhout, benefactors Bryan and Stephanie Grane, and the Visitation School Board. Here, Mrs. Osterhout (center) demonstrates a concept she learned at Fermilab training to (from left) Mr. Grane, Dr. Dransoff, Fr. Huggins and Fr. Belmonte. The program is named for St. Albert the Great, patron saint of science.

}Education is important to us. We see a lot of
potential for Visitation to be a leader. There are choices of where to send your kids in Elmhurst and we see Vis as a school that people look to.”— Stephanie Grane including feeding into Catholic high schools.” Named the St. Albert the Great Science Program, the curriculum honors the patron saint of science and reflects his reputation as one of the Catholic Church’s great intellectuals. The 13th century friar and bishop was a renowned scientist and researcher who wrote extensively about physics, math, astronomy, biology, chemistry and theology. Mrs. Osterhout participated in extensive training over the summer to launch the program. “Science education has moved beyond acquiring
knowledge to applying and integrating scientific principals with math and engineering,” she explained. “Our program focuses on real world issues, problem solving, collaboration and creativity. For example, we have a unit designed by Fermilab that is an environmental study on prairie restoration and includes the opportunity for students to go to Fermilab.” Visitation students in grades 6-8 will use a new digital curriculum called STEMScopes that is aligned with next generation science standards. And the annual school-wide science fair, a long-standing
tradition, will continue its focus on the scientific method while incorporating engineering and design concepts with an emphasis on teamwork. Dr. Dransoff concluded the program. “We are excited about significant upgrades we’ve made to our 6th to 8th grade science program at Visitation which will integrate more math and technology and incorporate engineering design concepts. These changes which will continue to develop over the next two years will better prepare students for the study of rigorous science in high school and beyond.”

Pictured here is the Vacation Bible School’s Service Squad, which included 47 sixth- through eighth-graders who spent each morning on mini-mission projects to help others.
The (G) Force is with Vacation Bible School ELMHURST — Although summer has ended for many Elmhurst kids with the beginning of school, one group has especially happy memories of their experiences earlier in the summer when they attended Vacation Bible School. On June 15-18, First Congregational United Church of Christ, St. Peter’s United Church of Christ, First United Methodist Church, and Bethel United Church of Christ joined forces for their annual VBS, held at St. Peter’s. This year’s theme was G-Force. Kindergarten through fifthgrade students enjoyed a week at St. Peter’s filled with Bible stories, crafts, songs, other activities and new friends, putting the love of Jesus into action. Middle school students were part of the VBS annual Service Squad. Forty-seven enthusiastic sixth- through eighth-graders worked and played hard, spending each morning on mini-mission projects to help others. In those short sessions they made a big impact
on their local community and beyond. This enthusiastic group cleaned and organized closets at the Ray Graham Center in Elmhurst; packed 2,308 meals for families at Northern Illinois Food Bank; collected $262 worth of quarters for Feed My Starving Children; packed enough meals for 78 children in the Dominican Republic for an entire year; and donated $100 for a care package to send to Chris Steahly, an Elmhurst resident stationed in Kuwait. (Chris has enjoyed good running socks, lots of Gatorade chews, Pringles, and much more.) A special thanks goes to local police officer Joan Velez for speaking to the Service Squad about what serving her community and country means to her. Everyone appreciated her thoughtful words and the time she spent with them. Service Squad has grown over the years “We have so many wonderful families in this community. Parents encourage their kids
to help others and make a real difference,” said Jenny Pozen, one of the Service Squad coordinators. “One interesting development I never imagined is how the adult volunteers have grown with us over the years. In the beginning only adults from our four churches were active in this group; now I see volunteers from all over our community. “It is wonderful to see. Just yesterday I had an email from a volunteer from another church in town wanting to put Service Squad on her calendar for 2016--that made me smile. This has become an amazing experience bringing our community together, and I have been fortunate to be a part of it.” Each year Vacation Bible School chooses a mission to support throughout the week. This year’s effort was to collect used children’s books for Bernie’s Book Bank. This local organization collects new and gently-used books, sorts them into six age-appropriate and leveled collections, and delivers them

Elmhurst Travelers Football Club holds reunion at Historical Museum Brings forth memories of a storied football legacy
By Dee Longfellow For The Elmhurst Independent
ost of them had a day job in the working world doing something other than their beloved sport. But after work at weeknight practices and on weekends, they were something more: they were semi-pro football players. Some were former high school, college and even NFL players. They all shared a love of football and a passion to play the competitive, hardhitting sport. It was the Elmhurst Travelers semi-pro football team, whose players huddled up once again recently for a reunion held at the Elmhurst Historical Museum. The Independent got to meet the spawn of its founder. Jim Kulton says he was born in the summer of 1937 and, with no air conditioning and the windows open, it was easy to hear the announcement coming from the loudspeaker at the game throughout the neighborhood, perhaps throughout the town. “Coach Kulton has a new baby boy!” George Kulton, Jim’s father,
joined his friends Lawton Davis and Mickey Hild right after high school graduation from York in 1927. The three men solicited local businesses for funds and managed to raise $120 – quite a bit in pre-Great Depression-1927 (in fact, $1645.78 in 2015 dollars) – and found 18 players to form the Elmhurst Travelers Football Team. Wes Perry was the first coach for five years, followed by Al Reed from Elmhurst College who coached for four. At that time, George Kulton decided to retire from playing and take over coaching. The team played at the lumberyard field, the Lake Street field, East End Park, Fenton High School, York High School, and finally Arlington Heights. It had a freelance schedule up until 1950, when it was finally able to join the BiState League, followed by the Tri-State League and eventually, the Central States League – or some might argue, the Big Leagues. In the regional semi-pro football league, the Travelers faced teams from Chicago, Aurora, and southern Wisconsin. They became known as tough competitors and had an impressive record over the course of 38 playing seasons with 292 wins, 80 losses and 30 ties. Known to “win at all costs,” the team went undefeated for 11 sea-
sons; three seasons they were not only undefeated, but also had no tie games. They played from 1927 to 1967, except for the years of 1943,’44, and ’45, when they “took a break” for World War II. George was eventually inducted into the Semipro Football Hall of Fame in Mobile, Ala. George Kulton also formed a 16-inch softball team in Elmhurst called the Stone Crushers, named for the quarry. That team went to 14 championships in its 20 years. Son Jim Kulton grew up in Elmhurst, born in 1937, he attended Hawthorne, Sandburg Middle School (called Elmhurst Junior High back then when there was only one). After York High School, he went to Elmhurst College where he finished in 1962 before going into the armed services during the Vietnam War era. Upon return, he started at B. A. Railton in 1965, then took a position at Entenmann’s Bakery located right in Elmhurst. (It has since closed.) The Independent asked Jim Kulton if any of the players ever went on to play pro football. “No, this league was at the other end of your career,” he said with a laugh. “We didn’t get players on their way up to the pros, we got them on their way back down!”
Pictured is Jerry Schropp holding his jacket from the Semi-Pro Football Hall of Fame, to which he was inducted. Several team members from the Elmhurst Travelers were granted the same honor over the years.

BONE MEDICATIONS’ EFFECT ON TREATMENT
Postmenopausal women, in particular, are at risk for the bone-thinning disease called “osteoporosis,” for which theby medications known “bisphosphoJeffrey T. asBoland nates” are often prescribed. These drugs, Licensed Orthodontic Specialist which include alendronate (Fosamax), ibandronate (Boniva), and others, work by slowing or stopping the natural processes by which bone tissue dissolves, thereby helping to preserve bone density and strength. By the same token, orthodontic treatment often relies on the natural process of bone resorption and formation (called “bone remodeling”) to move teeth through their bony foundations in the jaws. Because bisphosphonates may interfere with this process, prospective and current patients should be sure to tell their orthodontist if they are taking them. Successful orthodontic treatment requires optimal bone healing to prevent excessive tooth mobility.

Quigley visits Elmhurst Fire Department Federally-funded breathing apparatus could save firefighters’ lives
Congressman Mike Quigley (IL-5th) (right) receives a demonstration on the new breathing apparatuses that were purchased through federal funds passed by Quigley in his role on the Congressional Appropriations Committee. He was especially concerned when he learned that the equipment used by the Elmhurst Fire Department was old and outdated, frequently malfunctions or causes other problems, including illness.
By Dee Longfellow For The Elmhurst Independent
n the July 30 issue of the Elmhurst Independent, it was reported that U.S. Representative Mike Quigley had helped move funding through the U.S. House Appropriations Committee for updated breathing apparatuses for Elmhurst firefighters. Reports claim that the carcinogens that a firefighter might breathe inside a burning building can be as dangerous as those inhaled by a pack-a-day smoker over a period of 30 years. These statistics were reported by the United States Fire Administration (USFA), quoting from a study conducted by the TriData Division of System Planning Corporation in response to the high number of cancers diagnosed in firefighters. “…If you happen to go to a fire that requires you to wear a breathing apparatus, you’re still not fully protected,” Quigley told the Independent in an interview. “… The equipment they are currently using [at the Elmhurst Fire Department] is old and outdated, it frequently malfunctions or causes other problems, sometimes even illness. [The equipment] isn’t even up to federal standards of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).”
On Thursday, July 23, Quigley announced the award of $200,910 in federal funds through the Assistance to Firefighter Grant (AFG) program to the Elmhurst Fire Department to replace 38 Self Contained Breathing Apparatuses (SCBA), a device worn by rescue workers, firefighters, and others that provides breathable air in emergency situations. “This grant will allow Elmhurst’s equipment to be replaced with these self-contained breathing apparatuses, which are the same ones used by all the professional rescue workers, they are top of the line, state-of-the-art,” he said. “It is my feeling that our first responders need to be taken care of first and foremost, so they should have absolutely the very best, top of the line, state-of-the-art equipment, as well as all the training and support they need to do their jobs because they work for us.” Quigley was in town recently to meet members of the Elmhurst Fire Department, including Fire Chief Jeff Bacidore, and receive a demonstration on the SCBAs. “This Assistance to Firefighter Grant award will help protect the lives and safety of all Elmhurst Firefighters and the community they serve while enhancing regional response capabilities,” said Jeffery Bacidore, Fire Chief of the Elmhurst Fire Department.
During 2013, the Elmhurst Fire Department responded to more than 6,000 calls, while serving a population of 44,121 spread over 10.25 square miles.

Narcan program awaits governor’s signature Offers one potential solution to heroin epidemic
SPRINGFIELD — DuPage County’s Narcan® program has trained more than 2,200 police officers to administer naloxone, saving 66 individuals from overdosing on heroin.
As the growing heroin epidemic spreads throughout the state and nation, the legislature still awaits the governor’s signature on House Bill 1, an initiative to continue the program’s success with battling the drug not only in DuPage County but also in communities across Illinois. According to State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa
fire protection personnel, firefighters and school nurses, to be trained in administering Narcan. Narcan reverses the effects of an overdose for heroin, cocaine, Vicodin, OxyContin and Morphine. The drug can be administered either by injection or nasal spray. • Secondly, the initiative requires Medicaid to cover costs for addiction treatments and prescriptions. Currently,

Park), House Bill 1 is a comprehensive package designed to address heroin and opioid abuse and addiction in Illinois. The legislation addresses heroin abuse on a variety of different levels. Three major points of the initiative include the following: • First, the legislation, modeled from DuPage County’s efforts, creates a program for state and local police officers,

the second most common reason for Illinoisans to seek treatment is heroin, yet the state has the lowest rate of statefunded treatment compared to other Midwestern states, such as Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin. Expanding the scope of Medicaid to include some of these expenses will make treatment more readily available and bring Illinois up to speed with neighboring states. • Thirdly, requires the Illinois Department of Human Services and State Board of Education to develop a three-year heroin and opioid drug prevention program to address the heroin stronghold in Illinois. School districts will be given the option to adopt the program and DHS will work with the school districts to reimburse the costs. Cullerton asserts legislators from both sides of the aisle worked on the legislation because everyone recognizes drug overdoses and addiction can happen to people regardless of their age, socioeconomic background or ethnicity. “This measure is a great example of legislators working together in a bipartisan effort to address this problem and work to save lives,” he said.

Jesse White to retire after fifth term SPRINGFIELD — After five terms as Illinois secretary of state, Jesse White announced at the Illinois State Fair on Thursday, August 20, that he will retire from public office when his current term ends, he said Thursday at the Illinois State Fair The Chicago Democrat, a former Cook County Recorder of Deeds and state legislator, said his decision to not seek reelection in 2018 is final. “Take it to the bank,” said White, who has previously discussed retirement. “This is it.” The 81-year-old Alton native said he’d surely be on the job for the remainder of this term, though. “Oh, sure, I’ll be there every day, at my duty station and discharging my duties to the best of my abilities,” White told reporters at the Illinois State Fair. A former Army paratrooper, White also played minor league baseball and
spent three decades in the Chicago public school system as a teacher and administrator. In 1959, he founded the acclaimed Jesse White Tumbling Team for children in the Chicago area. Governor signs bill for federal funding Gov. Bruce Rauner on Thursday, August 20, signed a bill to access about $5.4 billion in federal funding for Illinois programs that would have been otherwise tied up because of the lack of a state budget. The measure, Senate Bill 2042, “will help those in need without adding to the state’s budget deficit,” Rauner spokesman Lance Trover said in a news release. The bill “allows the state to provide some services to the state’s most vulnerable citizens,” he added. The bill also authorizes the state to pay $166 million from its own funds toward debt service for Chicago’s Metropolitan Pier & Exposition Authority.

ELMHURST — If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a database of more than 1,000 images is a trove that captures countless moments in history. The Elmhurst Historical Museum is pleased to announce the availability of 1,000+ historical images in a searchable online digital collection that may now be accessed by the public. According to Nancy Wilson, Elmhurst Historical Museum’s curator of collections, the digitization of the Museum’s photographs, manuscripts, and objects is an ongoing project that has been years in the making. “Museums today want to share their collections as much as possible via the internet,” said Wilson, a veteran staff member who managed the digitization project since its inception. “It is a way to bring our collection to the public instead of keeping photos and artifacts hidden away in storage. Our online image database is an exciting, new connection that enables us to share our diverse collection with our patrons, whether they live here in Elmhurst or across an ocean.” The Elmhurst Historical Museum, which is located at 120 E. Park Ave. in Elmhurst, surpassed the significant goal of digitizing 1,000 images in August, and Wilson has plans for the online collection to continue to grow over time. “It’s a very time-consuming project, but one that has become a priority for
the Elmhurst Historical Museum,” she said. “We were able to achieve our goals with help from a dedicated group of volunteers who spent hours scanning items from the collection and uploading them to the database. This simply would not have happened without the assistance of our great volunteers. It was a real team effort to reach this milestone.” Wilson points researchers and history fans to the online database as an ideal place to start. “I suggest to those interested in looking at our photo archives to start online first, because often the image they are looking for is already scanned and available,” she said. “We have over 10,000 photos in our archives, so only a fraction of them are currently online. But we often receive requests for the same photos again and again, so we started by scanning the most requested items to make them easily accessible.” Wilson added that she receives research inquiries from around the world, whether it’s an author doing research for a book or a student working on a thesis. “We can be much more efficient and improve our customer service with this tool. People are often surprised to hear that we field inquiries from different time zones. So the database will provide a 24/7 opportunity for our customers to find what they need at their convenience, and I appreciate that efficiency.” To access the database, go to the Elmhurst Historical Museum’s home

And You Are…Nathan Dale and Frank Voris
York ’15 graduates attending Stanford University By Jean Lawrence For The Elmhurst Independent
lmhurst teens are heading off to colleges across the country this month. Two York graduates – Frank Voris and Nathan Dale – will be part of an elite group beginning their first year at Stanford University, which accepted only 5.05% of appli-
cants for the incoming freshman class. Nathan, who attended Immaculate Conception Grade School, was involved in student council, cross country, track and Relay for Life during his years at York. And since he was five years old he has been involved in competitive Irish dance, distinguishing himself with many titles
including winning the All-Ireland international championship his freshman year. “When you are applying to the top tier schools everyone has the grades so it comes down to something unique,” he said. “There aren’t that many male Irish dancers and I submitted videos of my performances with my applications so I think that was a big

contributing factor.” Nathan hopes to continue Irish dance at Stanford while majoring in bioengineering or a related field. “My AP Bio class senior year at York was one of my favorites and that fostered my interest in science and medicine,” he said. Nathan applied to many colleges including Northwestern, Duke, Rice, University of California at Berkeley, University of Michigan, University of Illinois, Penn, and Washington University in St. Louis. “Applying to so many schools isn’t necessarily advisable but I was applying to pretty selective places so I wanted to make sure something worked out,” he said. His choice of Stanford was based on financial aid and the strength of the academic options. “It boiled down to affordability,” said Nathan. “Stanford has a $20 billion endowment and they actually wound up being the most affordable option for my family. And it’s great for bioengineering but not solely a STEM school so, if I switch fields, it is still guaranteed to be a good program where I’ll make good connections for future school or jobs, which is really important.” Frank Voris, who attended Hawthorne Elementary and Sandburg Middle School, will be joining Nathan at Stanford. His primary activity at York was football, where he was Most Valuable Player and captain of the team. “Football was an important part of my career at York and I wrote about it in my college
essays, talking about how I worked hard to rally the team and we improved each year,” he said. “I actually never played football before high school but my friends encouraged me when I started York so I gave it a try and it turned out to be a perfect fit.” Frank wrestled for two years and he was invited to participate in leadership training in Colorado his sophomore year with other student athletes. “[Wrestling] Coach Terry Clark was a huge influence and role model and helped me get on my way,” he said. “And [Football] Coach Matt Monken, who came to York my senior year, taught us really good values.” In addition to Stanford, Frank was accepted at Vanderbilt University, University of Illinois, University of Florida at Miami, and Arizona. Stanford, Arizona and Vanderbilt all gave him preferred walk on offers to play football. “It was a hard decision but in the end I decided I couldn’t pass up a Stanford education. And I decided not to play football and just focus on school. I don’t have to declare a major until junior year but I’m thinking about business.”

Turn off highway 42 onto Garrett Bay Rd. in Ellison Bay to discover truly unique pottery created in a restored apple barn, which houses a ceramics studio, an art gallery and the artist’s home. Door County potters John Dietrich and Diane McNeil create their ‘Art for Everyday’ with you in mind. ‘Pottery is personal and our mission is to make pottery that people will use every day. Art improves your life and that’s what our art does.” John’s been throwing at the potter’s wheel for 49 years and he thinks he’s getting better every day. The beauty of the Niagara Escarpent, a unique feature of Door County, the forests, fields of wild flowers and the water inspires John and Diane every day. The functional stoneware ceramics made in their studio is food safe and easy to use. The surface design is applied with a painterly brush, full of life and movement. Since John’s designs are more abstract people bring their own experience to interpret the meaning of the piece, making it even more personal. Each piece of ceramic art is one of a kind work of art, which makes finding the perfect bowl or dish an interesting and exciting treasure hunt.

Increased funding needed for national parks improvements, say experts
(STATEPOINT) — Local roads, bridges, and other transit are integral parts of the national park experience. However, parks and their transportation infrastructure are facing a mounting financial challenge, say experts. Under the current law, the National Park Service is guaranteed $240 million per year for transportation projects through the Federal Highway Trust Fund, which advocates say is only one quarter of the amount needed annually to guarantee safe access to national parks. “With national park visits at an all-time high, more park funding, not less, is what’s needed to address the $6 billion worth of overdue and delayed transportation projects on the table,” says Laura Loomis, National Parks Conservation Association’s deputy vice president of government affairs. The National Park Service manages 1,500 bridges and about 10,000 miles of roads nationwide, including rural national park drives and major urban thoroughfares. From corroding support beams on park bridges to outmoded roads that create dangerous drop-offs, unfunded projects can pose a safety hazard to motorists, cyclists, hikers, park staff, emergency responders and wildlife. “Not only should Congress ensure national parks are safe, but investing in them spurs economic growth and supports jobs,” says Loomis. “The 100th anniversary of the National Park System in 2016 is a historic opportunity for Congress to ensure our national parks have the resources they need to thrive.” Information about transportation needs and funding opportunities in national parks can be found by visiting www. npca.org.

York football team a year stronger Dukes taking things week-to-week; ultimate goal is a playoff berth By Mike Miazga Correspondent
ELMHURST — Strength on the football field matters. York football coach Matt Monken knows that and made sure his squad improved in that area over the offseason. “The kids are doing really well. We had a great offseason,” said Monken, in his second year at the helm. “They did a tremendous job in the weight room and made a lot of strides there. We lifted a lot of weight and put a lot of time in there. We even did a powerlifting meet with Bolingbrook High School and had a lot of fun with that. Strength makes a big difference and having a room like we do to lift makes a difference as well. It allowed us to do the things we did. Last year we had seven kids who could bench press over 225 pounds. This year that number is 35. That’s a big improvement. We spent a lot of time getting stronger and you can see the results of that on the field. We are much more physical and with the teams we play that’s something we have to do. The kids feel better about themselves and they feel they can compete at a higher level. When you know you can bench 225, or squat more than 400 or deadlift 450 or 500, it makes
you feel better about playing the game.” York finished 4-5 a year ago and fell one game short of becoming playoff eligible in Monken’s first season. On offense, the Dukes return wide receivers Matt Riecker (6-4, 181, Sr.) and Matt Wozny (6-3, 175, Sr.) along with tight end Nick Brown (6-1, 220, Sr.). York quarterback John DiCanio (5-9, 170, Sr.) started two games last year. Also back is running back Lucas Alexander (5-9, 170, Sr.). He’s joined in the backfield by Montini transfer Connor Placey (5-11, 216, Sr.), Santiago Vazquez (5-10, 225, Jr.), Keith Freeman (5-10, 165, Jr.) and sophomore Grant Melion (5-11, 183). “We think Connor is that true option-style fullback and with him and Santiago, who is 5-10 and goes 225, carrying the heavy weight, it makes a big difference in the feel of the offense,” said Monken. The offensive line is comprised of veteran Tommy Helton (6-1, 270, Sr.) and 6-7, 275pound Montini transfer Luke Sever (senior) at guards, junior Johnny Chrisman (6-2, 190, Jr.) at center and the combination of Chuck Walsh (6-7, 316, Jr.), Ronny Graziano (5-11, 260, Jr.) and Cal Widener (6-3, 220, Jr.) at the tackle positions. “We have one starter back on the line and we feel very good about the other kids coming in,” said Monken. “While the line is kind of new, these kids

Golf team kicks off season with strong showing at Addison Trail invite Dukes post four scores in 70s to take third in 20-team field By Mike Miazga Correspondent
ELMHURST — The last time we checked in with the York boys golf team, it was competing in the Class 3A state finals. That success has carried over into the new season. York recently took third out of 20 teams at the Addison Trail invitational held at Indian Lakes in
Bloomingdale. York finished with a 306 score. Hinsdale Central, a fellow member of the West Suburban Conference Silver Division, won the tournament with a 289. Jordan Less led the Dukes with a 75. Will Gunst shot 76, while junior Mitchell Russell finished with a 77 and junior Tom Manning carded a 78. “At our tryouts we had eight boys in the 70s on one particular day,” said York coach Jim Borel. “Up and down our lineup we have some pretty talented golfers.” Mark Leali shot an 80 at Indian
Lakes, and it was his score that helped York secure third on a fifth scorecard tiebreaker. Junior Kyle Kubycheck shot 82. “Overall we played pretty well,” said Borel. This year’s York squad also features senior Frank Wheatland, who was on the state team a year ago. Senior Tim Brasco and junior Jake Czernik also will help. The Dukes’ varsity squad features four seniors and five juniors. Borel noted Brasco shot a 77 during tryouts. While Borel was pleased with how his team fared at Indian Lakes, he would
like to see that 306 score be reduced even further. “306 for us is kind of high, to be honest,” he said. “At the end of the season we will improve over what those scores were. It’s a senior-laden team and that’s very important to our postseason success.” Borel knows his team will, as always, have its hands full in the WSC Silver. “As usual there are other teams that are very good, but we definitely are in the conversation to do well,” said

Timothy Christian girls tennis team has sights set on success Trojans finished second in conference last season By Mike Miazga Correspondent
ELMHURST — The Timothy Christian girls tennis team has talent. And the Trojans are looking to use that talent to reach even greater heights this season. The Trojans are coming off a 2014 season where they went 12-4-1 overall and took second in the Metro Suburban Conference East Division with a 4-1 record. Timothy also finished second at the York sectional. Back for Timothy is senior
No. 1 singles player McKenna Byrne, who went 27-6 overall and is approaching the 100win barrier for her career at the school. In three seasons, Byrne has won the No. 1 and No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles titles in the Metro Suburban. Byrne also was a state qualifier a year ago in doubles with Ellie Wiener. Junior Danielle Beard went 29-4 last year playing mostly No. 2 singles. She won a conference title as well, and also won the Moline and Willowbrook invitationals. Timothy’s No. 1 doubles team of Toni Paterno and Wiener also returns. They went 20-10 last year. Wiener was an all-conference pick after
winning the No. 1 doubles league title with Byrne. Wiener teamed with Byrne at state. Wiener also won a title at the Niles West invitational. Key newcomers include freshman Abygale Ahn and junior Maddie Monet. Ahn is a highly ranked USTA player who Mills noted is strong enough to play No. 1 singles, but likely will play No. 1 doubles, No. 2 singles and No. 1 singles. She also will play in the volleyball program. Monet sat out last year after transferring from Benet Academy. Mills said she will play No. 2 doubles most of the year. “The top of the lineup will be very strong,” said Mills. “We are deep enough through at
have kids who played a lot last year.” Monken said the improvement he’s seen thus far has been significant. “Right now we are where we were in Week 7 last year,” he said. “It’s a big difference. We’ve been here installing the things we want and the kids know the expectations and know what we are doing on offense and defense. They know our terminology,” he said. “All of that makes a big difference. We definitely are far above where we were last year, that’s for sure.” Monken said the team is focused on only the upcoming week’s opponent, but stresses the end goal is a playoff berth. “That’s it,” he said. “That’s the goal. How can it not be? We would love to finish first or second in the conference, but the conference is what it is. It’s very tough and competitive. We start the season against New Trier and they are an extremely competitive team. Right now, New Trier is our goal and focus. Anything after that we’ll worry about
it when it comes. We do want to play in Week 10. We just missed last year. We were very close. The kids saw it and they know what it will take to get there. We have to play good football, not make too many mistakes and stay healthy.” York ramped up its non-conference schedule with the addition of New Trier, a playoff qualifier a year ago, in Week 1. “We want to be competitive,” said Monken. “The contract was up for Week 1 and New Trier was open. We felt like it was good fit. It’s a good game to start off the season with. We’ll take those first few weeks of non-conference games and get ready and prepare for the conference season. We’re playing a team that first week that’s had success. It will put us in a good spot if we can win that game. We’re really excited about this season. The kids are excited and the parents and the community are excited. We’re doing a lot of good things here. If we can stay healthy I definitely think we can have some success.”
Continued from page 35 have been in the system for two years now and have picked up on what we are doing and are building on that. They know the offense.” Monken will continue to utilize his roster to its full extent. “It’s the nature of our offense,” he said. “We want to keep kids fresh and healthy. We want to get different kids on the field and use different sets and get different packages on the field and let different kids make big plays for us. Our goal is to play as many kids as we can. Last year we averaged playing 58 kids a game. We have kids who get on the field and can make a big difference for us.” On the defensive side of the ball, Jack Julian (5-11, 170, Sr., cornerback) and Rob Hanrahan (5-10, 210, Sr., middle linebacker) started last year, while linebackers Quinn Gaughan (6-0, 200, Sr.) and Sam Rasnic (6-1, 210, Sr.) saw action last year. The defensive line will feature the likes of Marc Bernard (6-2, 255, Sr.), Brandon Kessell (6-4, 200, Sr.), Matt Shipman (6-0, 210, Sr.), Chris McCoy (6-5, 200, Jr.) and Brian Nudera (6-1, 195, Sr.). Bernard, Shipman and Nudera are tackles, while McCoy and Kessell are defensive ends. “We’ll rotate in guys on the defensive line,” said Monken. “We’ll have a line that has guys who are in that 6-foot to 6-5 range.” Luke Sacksteder (6-1, 190, Jr., safety), Sean Ward (5-9, 150, Sr., cornerback) and Tommy Morrissey (6-1, 185, Jr., cornerback) will help Julian out in the secondary. “We’re really senior-oriented when it comes to the defense,” said Monken. “We
Week 1 Preview York at New Trier
When: Friday, 7:30 p.m. Where: New Trier High School, Winnetka Last year: Teams did not play Outlook: York will be challenged right out of the gates in this non-conference contest against a New Trier team that went 10-2 and reached the state semifinals. York coach Matt Monken is thrilled with his team’s progress in the weight room. Like last year, look for the Dukes to rotate plenty of players in and out of the game. Monken noted York averaged using 58 players a game last season.
least the top six players. However, we do not have lots of players knocking at the starting lineup. We don’t have a ton of depth.” Mills said strengthening the team’s No. 3 doubles position will be a key. He added the top of the singles lineup will be a major strength. “We have McKenna’s and Danielle’s experience,” he said. “Abygale gives us a great option as well. Figuring out where everyone will play will work out in the next couple weeks. McKenna having been around for three years will not surprise anyone, but she continues to improve and had several quality wins against high-ranked players during the offseason. Expect a couple upsets from her this year. And
Danielle Beard could get even better this year. She could play No. 1 singles at many schools. She serves lefty and plays righty with strong groundstrokes. Abygale is a high level player with a very competitive attitude. She needs to get quality matches under her belt and could be tough to beat this year.” Mills feels his squad will be right there when it comes to contending for the conference title. “To be honest we will be tough to beat if we stay injury free,” he said. “In the conference it’s a two team race with us and Illiana. They edged us last year and return most of their lineup. I’m hoping the players we have coming back plus the additions of Abygale and Maddie will tip the scale.”

offense and a scrappy defense,” said York coach Patty Iverson. “These young women have put in a lot of time this summer on the court and in the weight room so we are hoping this will pay off during the season.” Beyond volleyball talent, Iverson said her 2015 group stands out in other ways. “They are nice kids who have great parents,” she said. “They work hard and love to play volleyball. They are a spirited group. I’ve had most of them since they were freshmen. We have a large amount of seniors and a few juniors with varsity experience. It’s a really nice group.” Truett, Preuss, Rose and Zerdin have been on the varsity since their freshmen seasons. Iverson said York will stand out in other ways beyond just offensive firepower this season. “We have a great ball-handling team,” she said. “Sarah Rose is running a wonderful offense. We’re looking forward to hitting our way through matches. Alexandra and Ally have been hitting great and Sydney looks good. She’s improved a lot. “Kristie Paus is hitting really well in the middle. We will have strong middles. We’re going to have great defense with Halle, Amaya and Julia.” Iverson knows her team will have to be on its game night in and night out in the WSC Silver. “Our half of the conference is very tough,” she said. “We assume we will be in tough matches every night.” Iverson added she’s confident her team can take additional steps forward this season. “We are planning on doing a lot better than last year,” she said.
York girls volleyball team loaded with talent ELMHURST — The York girls volleyball team racked up 25 victories a year ago. And the bad news for its opponents: Most of the players are back, including four-year varsity hitting standout Alexandra Preuss, who racked up an impressive 466 kills last season to go with 315 digs and 45 aces. Also back for York (which went 3-3 in the tough West Suburban Conference Silver Division in 2014) is libero and four-year varsity player Halle Truett, who had 477 digs and 47 aces last season. Junior setter Sarah Rose, a three-year varsity player, also is back. She registered 764 assists, 206 digs and 30 aces last season. Senior right side Ally Mann (146 kills, 34 blocks), junior middle Sydney Bonthron (67 blocks, 39 kills), Stephanie Reinke (74 blocks, 55 kills), senior libero and three-year varsity player Amaya Diaz (189 digs, 14 aces), sophomore defensive specialist-outside hitter Julia Zerdin (137 digs, 17 aces), senior outside hitter Michele Wiese (29 kills) and senior right side Hannah Fleckenstein (32 digs, 19 kills) also return. Zerdin played on the varsity last season as a freshman. New to the varsity are sophomores Kristie Paus (middle) and Lauren Kalinich (outside hitter). York graduated starter Liz Pronove (OH-MB) and defensive player Kara Glavan. “We have a lot of experience and should have a pretty quick

IC Catholic Prep boys golf team has big plans Knights loaded with returning talent, including Leahy and Hurt By Mike Miazga Correspondent
ELMHURST — The IC Catholic Prep boys golf team had a promising start to the season with its fourth-place finish at the recent Glen Oak invitational at Glen Oak Country Club. IC finished tied for fourth with a 334, three strokes behind third-place Wheaton North (331). “We beat teams that were 10 times our enrollment,” said IC coach Don Sujack. Trey Morris led the Knights with a fifth-place individual finish. He shot 77. Connon Leahy took 10th and shot a 79. John Hoffman finished with an 88 and Jack Ricobene shot
91. Maddie Hurt and Charlie Schoonveld each shot 92. “It was a good start to our season playing a great golf course against some outstanding competition,” said Sujack. “Trey and Connon had nice days. They will be contending for medalist in every tournament we play in. Plus, it was an opportunity to play against some perennial state contenders such as Glenbard South, St. Francis and Wheaton Academy. We’ll have to compete a little harder throughout our lineup in order to keep pace with the top teams, but we certainly have the ability to do so.” Leahy advanced to the state finals last year as a freshman, while Sujack noted Morris is hitting the ball 25 yards farther off the tee this season. Hurt, a standout girls’ competitor, will continue her routine of playing with the IC boys team until the girls state playoffs begin.
Also looking to contribute for the Knights are senior Matt DeWitte, junior Troy Simonides and sophomores Schoonveld and Michael Hoffman (John’s brother). All nine players saw some sort of varsity action last week. “All of them experienced at least a little varsity action last year and our junior varsity team took second in the conference meet,” said Sujack. “They have shown the ability to step up and perform on a little bigger stage when the expectations are a little higher.” Sujack noted one adjustment the team will have to make is not having a set playoff lineup until very close to the start of the state series due to Hurt not leaving the boys team until the start of the girls postseason. “The competitive aspect of the team in terms of what the lineup will ultimately be won’t be set until early October when
Kelsey James named new IC Catholic Prep girls basketball coach Previously coached at Mt. Assisi High School
trate after being promoted to an administrative position in St. Charles School District 303. Schuett led IC to back-to-back state semifinal appearances in 2014 and 2015. James attended Lake Forest By Mike Miazga College and finished her colCorrespondent lege career at Loras College in ELMHURST — IC Catholic Dubuque, Iowa. Prep’s girls basketball coaching At the high school level, James was a standout at Marist position is vacant no longer. The team recently announced High School in Chicago (2007 Kelsey James has been hired graduate), where she played as the new head girls varsity four years on the varsity team. In 2012, James took over the girls program at Mt. Assisi High School in Lemont after a two-year run as its JV coach. She was the team’s head coach until the school closed at the end of the 2014-2015 school year. James also has been coaching teams at the 15U and 17U levels at the Bulls/Sox Academy in Lisle since 2012. “We are thrilled to welcome Kelsey to our coaching staff and look forward to her leadership in our girls basketball program,” IC Catholic Prep athletic director Tom Schergen said. “Kelsey has strong Catholic school connections, she was a very competitive player and she has been a successful head — Tom Schergen coach. Our girls basketball Athletic Director program has achieved a tremendous amount of success in coach. She replaces Aubree recent years and our interview Schuett who stepped down committee felt the qualities and earlier this summer to concen- experience Kelsey exhibits will
Ms. Hurt goes on to regionals, sectionals and beyond,” said Sujack. Sujack said he’s excited about the prospects of this year’s group. “I really do think we are going to be better,” he said. “Last year we missed state by 12 strokes. That’s three strokes a man. Three others teams missed by less than that, but the fact is Connon is a lot better this season, Trey is a lot better and I think Maddie has a chance to grab a meet medalist during the season. At Glen Oak, the course was playing 6,600 yards and it was raining. She should have shot 84. She still did well. She’s killing the ball right now. Everybody has gotten better. I think we have the ability to take the next step. Our top three people played in a lot of tournaments over the summer and Maddie fared very well. Connon and Trey have been very steady. I’m
looking for some good seasons out of everybody.” Sujack is excited about a pair of dual meets during the first week of September against North Shore Country Day at Merit Club in Libertyville and Glenbard South at Cantigny Golf Club in Wheaton. “I can’t remember the last time both those teams did not go downstate,” said Sujack. “We will know a lot more about our ability. The promising thing is at Glen Oak to a man they felt they left shots out there and felt we could have performed better, which is great to see. They are dedicated and motivated and are practicing hard. We’ve had a wonderful start to the season. The next couple weeks will give us a good read. We’ll have the ability to stand up and be counted when we are playing these state-level teams at outstanding courses. We’re looking forward to the challenge.”

help her continue the positive direction of our program.” James met with IC players two days after accepting the position. IC opens the 20152016 season Nov. 16 at Oak Forest. The Independent will have more on James’ hiring in next week’s paper.
Borel. “Hinsdale Central has a very talented team with good players who are good kids on top of that. They showed that at Indian Lakes. We have as good a chance at beating them as anyone. Lyons, Glenbard West, Downers Grove North and Oak Park-River Forest are good teams. The West Suburban Silver always is very good. I think we will hold our own. At the
same time, we could lose to these teams. We know we have to play well.” Borel noted York will face Hinsdale Central in its secondto-last WSC Silver contest this season. This year, York will host Hinsdale Central. “We’re hoping this year will be different than last year,” said Borel. “We’re looking forward to the challenge.”

he Salt Creek District 48 Board of Education is launching a strategic goal setting initiative next month and is seeking interested participants. To take part, please contact Tammy Clarke at email@example.com or 630-279-8400. The first session will be held Saturday, Sept. 12. It is an opportunity for Salt Creek District 48 stakeholders, parents, students, community members, staff and faculty to give input on a variety of topics related to the District, including curriculum, finances, facilities and community relations. “This is an opportunity to guide and shape the District’s priorities over the next five years,” said Superintendent John Correll. The first session will include an overview of the District and an opportunity for participants to provide feedback on strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats about the District. Additional work groups could be formed related to specific topics. Following the input, the strategic goal setting team will develop an action plan for approval by the Board of Education. “Involving the community is important as it ensures that the Board speaks for the community,” Correll added. “It also helps align community values and our school district’s operations.” The session will be facilitated by a representative from the Illinois Association of School Boards. Salt Creek Board recognized for governance The Salt Creek District 48
Board of Education was recently notified that it received “Governance Recognition” from the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB). The recognition acknowledges that the Board together learns and practices effective governance behaviors. Good governance generally means that a Board is accountable, transparent, responsible, equitable and inclusive, effective and efficient, participatory and follows the rules of the law. The recognition also notes that the Board supports board development and commitment to good governance. The Board was one of only 14 in the state so honored. Board members include President Dane Cuny, Vice President Ray Kielminski, Secretary John Van De Velde and members James Blair, Terry Aubry Garrett, John Downer and Stacy Rattana, who was recently appointed to fill a vacancy left by Dr. Hans Schuller. “This is a testimony of the commitment and sincerity with which each member takes its role,” said Board President Dane Cuny. “We have worked hard to create an accountable, transparent Board with members who strive for continued education and improvement,” he said. The Board officially will receive the recognition at the IASB DuPage Fall Dinner Meeting Oct. 6. In addition, a picture of the Board will be on display at IASB Information Room at the Joint Annual Conference in November in Chicago. “This is a great honor and is well deserved,” said Superintendent John Correll. “It is based on years of excellence and a commitment to ongoing training.
Outlook: This is a rematch of last year’s season opener in Elmhurst where McNamara recorded a 41-0 victory. McNamara plays in the Chicago Catholic League White Division and made the playoffs last year with a 6-4 record. McNamara also scored a win last year against a team IC is very familiar with in Aurora Christian.

He suffered from hallucinations to the extent he was unable to rec-
