LEMONT — Teaching is more than a job for Lemont resident Julie Lingl, it’s her life’s passion. That passion was halted in 2010 when Lingl said she lost her position as a first-grade teacher in District 113A due to budget cuts. “I volunteered for two years in 113A without pay,” Lingl said. “I would teach after school (while volunteering at 113A) because I want to teach,” Lingl said. “Teaching was always my goal. That’s who I am.” Her goal to continue teaching and shape young minds was slipping away so Lingl

decided to create her own preschool — I Flip “N” Learn. The preschool, 10350 Rising Court in Woodridge, combines an academic curriculum created by the state of Illinois and a gymnastics class, she said. “Gymnastics uses both sides of the brain and there aren’t many sports that do that,” Lingl said. “It definitely improves their learning.” Lingl said a preschool class will consist of 30 minutes of gymnastics followed by twoand-a-half hours of learning. “When they come in the classroom, both sides of the brain are active and ready to go; their memory and concentration is better

and their focus,” Lingl said. “The gymnastics part also increase self-esteem and listening skills.” The gymnastics class is taught by a certified gymnastics teacher to teach the children the basics of the sport, she said. The goal isn’t necessarily to create the next Olympic gymnast but to give them a noncompetitive sport where each child can succeed individually. “We don’t expect the children to come here just because of gymnastics, that’s not our selling point,” Lingl said. “We give them challenges in gymnastics we know they can attain. They feel proud they have accomplished something.”

“Hawaii because it’s warm.” Victor Swenson Lemont

After gymnastics, the children move into the classroom where Lingl teaches the children a new word, sign language for that word, a song and art projects that work on math, literacy, writing and fine motor skills. “I expect results from the kids,” Lingl said. “They don’t just come into a typical preschool where it’s mostly play-based. I expect a lot from these kids and children will rise to the challenge.” Lingl is currently accepting registration for the fall for 3- and 4-year-olds. “It’s a diamond in the rough,” Lingl said. “People need to know that this program exists and it works.”

Lemont Scout troop debuts latest line of Eagle Scouts By JANICE HOPPE

LEMONT — Eagle Scout status isn’t an easy feat. Don’t tell that to Lemont’s Boy Scout Troop 149, though. The troop honored six of its Scouts with the Eagle Scout rank on Jan. 5, an impressive number considering prior to this year the troop had 33 Scouts earn Eagle status in its 53-year history. Troop 149 Scoutmaster Dave McGuire said having six Eagle Scouts in one year is impressive, but not unheard of. “It is kind of unusual,” McGuire said. “It does happen in Scouting, it’s not unheard of, but it’s significant.” Statistically, only 4 percent of boys that enter Scouting complete the Eagle rank, McGuire added. “It’s a testament that these guys have been together so long in scouting — 10 or 11 years — and the friendship and positive peer pressure that gets fostered here,” McGuire said. “It was a good thing for these guys.” The troop members achieving the Eagle Scout rank are: Delany McGuire, Joshua Wiktor, Paul Rachwalski and Justin Stanwyck of Lemont, and Brian Finnegan and Joseph Walano of Homer Glen. In Boy Scouting, Eagle Scout is the last rank of advancement. To achieve this rank, a Scout must: demonstrate that he has lived by the Scout Oath and Law in his daily life; must earn a total of 21 merit badges; must hold a significant troop leadership position for at least six months; must select, organize and execute a service project with lasting benefit to his community; and must pass an Eagle Scout board of review that includes participants from outside the group. McGuire said each of the young men have put in about 150 personal hours toward their Eagle Scout projects. “Obviously we are very, very proud of them, their commitment and dedication to the troop and the community and the service hours they have put in over the years,” McGuire said. “It’s good to see that Scouting is alive and well and fostering this responsibility to the community.” Boy Scout Troop 149 is made up of 39 boys, ages 11 up to 18, McGuire said. He added it’s hard to tell who is going to continue on to the Eagle Scout rank in the future but believes next year the troop may see four or five members achieve the status as well. “Right now our troop is top-heavy age wise so we may see more then we will see a little lag at one point,” McGuire said. “Right now there is a lot of interest and I hope it is ongoing.”

LEMONT’S NEWEST EAGLES Justin Stanwyck Stanwyck earned his Eagle rank on July 30, 2012. His project restored a natural walking trail that runs through the wooded south side of the Lemont Park District. The project required rebuilding bridges, installing culverts and clearing fallen timber. Stanwyck will graduate from Lemont High School in May with high honors and is planning to attend Stanford University to study engineering in the fall.

Delaney McGuire McGuire earned his Eagle rank on Nov. 8, 2012. McGuire’s project involved the fundraising for and leadership to install a cedar rail fence at the Shady Oaks Camp. His project

now provides a measure of safety for the campers, helps reduce maintenance cost and enhances the natural beauty of the property. McGuire will graduate with high honors from Lemont High School in May and is planning to attend the University of Illinois in the fall to study business.

Paul Rachwalski Rachwalski earned his Eagle rank on Oct. 15, 2012. His project organized an effort to

restore the wooden decks and wheelchair ramps attached to the cabins at the Shady Oaks Cerebral Palsy Camp in Homer Glen. His project will help maintain the structural integrity and longevity of the decks and ramps which provide safe access for the campers and enhance the camp’s aesthetics. Rachwalski will graduate from Lemont High School in May with high honors and is planning to attend Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology to study engineering in the fall.

Joshua Wiktor Wiktor earned his Eagle rank on Nov. 8, 2012. Wiktor’s project re-fabricated and beautified the main flagpole area at the Shady Oaks Camp in Homer Glen. His project beautified the camp and revitalized the opportunity for flag ceremonies and other activities. Wiktor will complete an independent study program and begin college coursework in the fall.

Lemont fire chief eyes retirement, spot on Romeoville Village Board By JANCIE HOPPE

When it comes to retirement, some may dream of warm weather year-round, beaches, and days of sleeping-in and lounging. Lemont Fire Chief Carl Churolo’s retirement dream is to be seated as a trustee on the Romeoville Village Board. “I don’t know how to relax. I am on the go most of the time,” Churulo said. “Retirement gives me an opportunity to give back and I’ll have more time to give back.” Churulo, who moved to Romeovile in 1976 with his wife of 44 years — Phyliss, will retire from his post as fire chief on Aug. 15 after eight years. He’s no stranger to people in Romeoville

NEWS BRIEFS Lemont Library Board seeks candidate to fill vacancy LEMONT — The Lemont Public Library Board of Trustees is seeking applicants to fill a vacancy on the board. Former Trustee Charles Ray vacated his position because he moved to Florida. The appointment is to fill the remainder of Ray’s term, which is until May 2015.

— he is already a member of its planning and zoning commission, is a founding member of the local Rotary Club, a member of the local Kiwanis Club and a member of the local branch of the Knights of Columbus. Carl Churulo In his bid to fill one of three trustee seats on the Romeoville Village Board, Churulo will run as an independent against three incumbents in the April election. “I want to try and address the issues and cut back on spending a bit,” Churulo said. “Romeoville has come a long way, but you

have to watch your spending like anything else.” Churulo may be joined on the village board by a former Chicago Bears Super Bowl champ. Steve McMichael is running for Romeoville mayor against incumbent John Noak. Churulo said “Mongo stands a chance” to win and said he has found talking politics with the former Bear to be “interesting.” In 1990, Churulo became the first fulltime fire chief for the village of Romeoville and spent 14 years in that position. In 2004, Churulo came to Lemont as the Lemont Fire Protection District’s fire chief. “I’ve been happy here,” Churulo said. “Personally and professionally this was a great move for me. Everything the board

wanted to accomplish I’ve accomplished.” Before leaving the Lemont Fire Protection District, Churulo said he hopes he will be involved in the selection of the new fire chief. He also hopes the new chief will be hired by July 1 so he has about four to six weeks to help acclimate the chosen candidate to the new position. “I think we will stay within,” Churulo said. “I hope they will. I have people that are ready to step up.” Despite the outcome of the April elections, Churulo is planning for his retirement years. “I have been learning to take sometime for myself and my wife and clam down,” Churulo said. “I hope to enjoy myself and make a difference for people.”

Interested candidates must be residents of the Lemont Public Library District. Candidates should submit a letter of interest stating their qualifications and interest in serving the Library District by Feb. 4. Professional resumes may also be submitted. Letters of interest can be mailed to: Vytenis Kirvelaitis; President, Board of Trustees; Lemont Public Library District; 50 Wend St.; Lemont, IL 60439, or emailed to

He said the increase in presence means that parents and community members may see the police around schools more often but should not to be alarmed something is wrong. “If you see the police there, the assumption shouldn’t be that there is trouble,” Shaughnessy said.

A New York native, Lemont reverend plans Sandy relief trip By JANICE HOPPE

LEMONT — Lemont Calvary Church Pastor Alexis Roraback grew up in New York and when Hurricane Sandy hit last October, she knew she needed to get involved in relief efforts. “As soon as it hit, we knew we had to help,” Roraback said. “We love New York and the people.” So, Roraback launched a Sandy Relief Trip, during which she will be leading a group of about 12 volunteers to Breezy Point in Queens, New York, from Jan. 27 through Feb. 2, to help restore homes damaged by

the hurricane. “It’s still pretty severe there, a lot of homes still need to be gutted that are unlivable,” Roraback said. “It’s still in really bad shape and that area is where a lot of firefighters and police officers live.” Lemont Calvary Church’s group of volunteers is partnering with Operation Blessing — a non-profit humanitarian organization — while in New York and will be gutting, re-painting and restoring homes in Breezy Point. “We are just really excited to go and do whatever we can,” Roraback said. “When a national disaster happens, it’s so overwhelming and people may say they can only do one thing, but when everyone puts

their little part together we are helping put together a community and neighborhood.” Roraback spoke of how natural disasters can often be forgotten by people months after their occurrence. She doesn’t believe that’s the case with east coast and the affects of Hurricane Sandy. “Each week there are still people coming and helping,” she said. For those interested in volunteering their time to help the relief efforts, the church is offering a trip to Breezy Point for $125 to cover transportation costs. Food and lodging will be taken care of by Operation Blessing upon arrival. “New Yorkers are resilient — we are tough,”

Join the Lemont Calvary Church Sandy Relief Trip What: Pastor Alexis Roraback is leading a team to New York to help with relief effort from Hurricane Sandy. Trip Date: Jan. 27 through Feb. 2 Total Cost: $125 per person Deposit: A $50 deposit to secure a spot is needed by Jan. 13

Roraback said. “They want to rebuild and they have been so overwhelmed by the generosity of America and people doing whatever they can to rebuild a neighborhood.”

<<< CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE The move is to ensure a safe environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors, according to the press release from the village. Shaughnessy added that the department has been meeting with school officials and reviewing plans already in effect. An ongoing assessment of safety will continue between the Village of Lemont and all schools to ensure safety needs are met, the release states. He added that the department’s commitment to school safety is a top priority. “We will continue with the plans we have in affect and meet regularly with the staff in the schools,” Shaughnessy said. “We want to reassure staff and parents that we have a plan in affect and we will be around.”

The Rev. Glenn Bergmark, former pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church and a longtime Lemont resident, received the 2012 Senior Citizen of the Year Award from U.S. Rep.

Thumbs Up — No one has to tell the Rev. Glenn Bergmark that idle hands are the devil’s workshop. Even after retiring as pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church in Lemont eight years ago, Bergmark has resisted the temptations of too much leisure. His commitment to community service earned him the 2012 Senior Citizen of the Year Award from U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-3rd District, of Western Springs. The award is given by Lipinski to senior citizens who are dedicated to volunteerism and civic involvement in their communities. Those honored must be nominated by someone in the community. Lemont Mayor Brian Reaves nominated Bergmark for the award because he was an “obvious choice” as he has been involved in the community for more than 40 years.

Sylvester Czopek, who died last year without any living relatives, left his money in a trust to be distributed to Chicago-area animal shelters. His only instructions were that the money would go to no-kill facilities. Five shelters are due to receive their share of the donation within the next month.

This award recognizes extraordinary high school and middle school students for services to their community and classmates, leadership qualities and academic achievements. The Rotary Club of Hinsdale honors students from local public and private schools at award ceremonies several times each school year. As a member of the Rotary Club of Hinsdale, I coordinate the program. Staff members at Hinsdale Central High School, Hinsdale Middle School, Clarendon Hills Middle School, Hinsdale Adventist Academy, St. Isaac Jogues and Notre Dame School nominate students. The award Cheri Vana winners attend a Rotary meeting, address the club members about their activities and interests, and receive a certificate to commemorate the occasion. Middle school students attend with their parents and invite an individual they consider their influential teacher. Last month’s teachers were J. Michael Carlos, Diane Sullivan and Rebecca Schmid. The following students earned the award: ■ Kathryn Noble Hopper, senior, Hinsdale Central High School, Hinsdale resident; ■ Rence Arroyo, eighth grade, Hinsdale Adventist Academy, Downers Grove resident; ■ Julianna Marzanna Bojko, eighth grade, Hinsdale Adventist Academy, Bolingbrook resident; ■ Tara Keane, eighth grade, St. Isaac Jogues, Hinsdale resident; ■ Kevin Kumar, eighth grade, St. Isaac Jogues, Darien resident; and ■ Max Tuttle, eighth grade, Notre Dame School, Clarendon Hills resident. “For more than two decades, the Rotary Club of Hinsdale has presented its Youth Merit Awards. These awards identify and honor middle and high school students who set the example for their contemporaries in academics, athletics, the arts and community service,” said President Rich Barton. “We are pleased to announce that not only will we continue honoring these special students, but that Hinsdale Bank and Trust has joined us as the community sponsor of this program. Both Rotary members and the bank staff are continually impressed and amazed with the achievements of these young members of our community.” The Rotary Club of Hinsdale meets weekly at 12:15 p.m. at the Community House in Hinsdale. The club, founded in 1959, consists of men and women of diverse backgrounds whose personal commitment to service ranges from support of local youth programs to assistance for the poor and sick across the globe.

ootball players from Northern Illinois University weren’t the only locals at Miami’s Orange Bowl on the first day of the New Year. For instance, 17-year-old Darien resident and Hinsdale South High School student Jenna Rolowicz also made the trip to palm tree territory and got a glimpse of the spotlight by performing during the halftime show with singer Jake Owen. Rolowicz has trained at the Center for Dance in Westmont since 1999 when she was just 4 years old. The dance studio is owned and operated by Jan Forster, and her daughter, Ashley Forster, is a teacher there. Thanks to the mother-daughter pair and Jan Forster’s son, T.J., who helped make accommodations in Miami, Rolowicz had the chance to grab center stage and make memories she’ll never forget.

What kind of dance do you do? I do everything — ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip-hop and contemporary. My favorite is tap. How did you get the opportunity to perform at the Orange Bowl? Last year, we were at a competition and someone from the Heritage Center was

observing and they asked us if we would do it. Anyone from our studio was invited to go, but eight of us decided to go. How did you prepare for it? Cris Judd the choreographer sent us a video so we could all learn it beforehand, and then we all rehearsed together when we got there. There was like 461 people there dancing for the halftime show. We got there three

What was it like to be a part of the Orange Bowl? It was really overwhelming walking into the stadium. I didn’t expect there to be that many people there, but there was over 70,000 people. It was really cool. What was the most memorable thing about the trip? I’d say the best part was walking onto the field with all my friends. We all just got so excited because everyone was cheering and we all got so pumped for it. Everyone was so excited. It was a really good once-in-a-lifetime experience and I’ll never forget it. — ALLISON HORNE

Ethan Pocic represented Lemont High School at the Under Armour All-American Game last week before leaving for Louisiana State on Thursday. Matthew Piechalak —

‘Incredible experience’ By SCOTT SCHMID

Luck wasn’t on Ethan Pocic’s side when he traveled down to Florida for the 2013 Under Armour All-America Game with his Lemont High School coach, Eric Michaelsen. The recent high school graduate first missed the final two days of practice with the flu before dislocating a finger on his second play from scrimmage in the Jan. 4 game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. But those unfortunate happenings didn’t take away from what he experienced alongside the top high school seniors in the country. “It was a great time,” said the offensive lineman. “It was real fun hanging out with all of the players, and practicing with them

made me a better player. That competition makes you a way better player.” The five-day event also gave Pocic a glimpse at what he will see over the next few months and years. After graduating early from Lemont, Eric Michaelsen he left Thursday for Louisiana State University where he will take classes and compete in spring practice. “I’m excited to get down there and start working,” Pocic said, “and I’m a little nervous because I’ll be on my own. But it is just a part of growing up.”

Pocic, Michaelsen share gridiron with All-American players, former NFL coaches


Ethan Pocic’s ranking as an offensive tackle in the Class of 2013. Kyle Bosch of Wheaton St. Francis, who is headed to Michigan, is seventh on that list Michaelsen also felt fortunate to be included in the festivities as a linebackers coach. “It was an incredible experience,” he said. “I was able to coach with former NFL coaches and former NFL players and have the opportunity to work with them. “For example, Herm Edwards, who now works at ESPN, was the head coach of our team and Steve Mariucci was the head coach of the other team. The thing that was nice, it

was kind of like having a clinic all week with the opportunity to learn and see all the different techniques. And they didn’t talk down to you, they were happy to work with us.” The added bonus was being there alongside Pocic. “He represented Lemont High School and the town of Lemont extremely well,” Michaelsen said. “To have a player at a game like that, that is definitely an honor for our program and our school.” Coaching some of the country’s elite players was a special experience for Michaelsen. “Even though they were the top players, they were still looking to be coached and they listened to advice that the coaches would give them,” he said. “It was nice to develop relationships with them and now I’ll be able to follow those kids down the road.”

Rare loss has Indians eager to rebound By SCOTT SCHMID

Next game

During the past year and a half, there haven’t been many reasons to second guess anything that Lemont has done on the boys basketball court. But on Monday, it was time for the Indians to break down tape on a large projector screen to see exactly what transpired as the team’s 13point second-half advantage slipped away in a 81-74 loss to Richards Friday. “There are things on the tape you can’t run from,” said Lemont coach Rick Runaas. “It was a very disappointing loss. A lot of things happened that don’t normally happen to us. We didn’t handle the situation as we normally do. When you do or don’t do those things, that’s how you lose games. “We didn’t handle their pressure well, we took quick shots, we turned the ball over and we stopped competing on defense. A lot of things didn’t go our way and it is our own fault. It was not unlucky, it wasn’t the refs’ fault. We didn’t take care of our responsibilities.” Juozas Balciunas collected 25 points and eight assists in the loss, which marked only the second defeat of the season and first in conference play for Lemont (12-2, 4-1). Mike Wisz added 16 points and five rebounds while Marty Einikis contributed 16 points and four blocks. Since the defeat was an exception and not the

PREP ROUNDUP Wrestling After competing against Evergreen Park and T.F. South in a triangular meet yesterday, Lemont will take part in the Batavia Invitational on Saturday morning. A quad meet with Eisenhower, Reavis and Tinley Park follows on Thursday. Headlining the squad is senior Chris Giatras, who is ranked No. 1 in Class 2A in the 182-pound weight class by Last month, he finished first at the Palatine Invite and second at the Hinsdale Central tournament where he suffered his only defeat of the season.

Boys swimming Lemont knocked off Oak Lawn 105-65 in a South Suburban Conference dual meet Tuesday. Justin Stanwyck won the 200-yard freestyle in 2:06.09, Michael Diorio came in first in the 200 individual medley in

rule, now is not the time to be making wholesale changes. “As a coach, you have to guard against making drastic conclusions after one game,” Runaas said. “Emotions are running high on Friday and as your driving home, it’s ‘We have to do this and we have to do that.’ But then you take a step back and slow down.” Lemont will get its chance to put that game in the rearview mirror Friday when Argo comes to town for a 7 p.m. tip. Matchups with Joliet Catholic and Oak Forest follow on Tuesday and Thursday. “The kids probably wanted to get back out there and play a game the next day,” the coach said. “Me, I wanted to practice and fix things. We both will be ready by Friday. Kids in general are pretty resilient and this group is. “Argo played in the (Romeoville) Christmas tournament so I saw them live there. They will put some pressure on us and try to run as much as they can.”

Indians soaring despite key injury By SCOTT SCHMID

When senior Kelsey Motto went down with a knee injury on Dec. 11, it wasn’t known how the rest of the Lemont girls basketball team would respond without one of their top players. But the Indians have more then weathered the storm over the past month and head into Friday’s game against Argo with a 11-6 overall record and 5-1 mark in the South Suburban Blue conference. “We’ve been playing pretty well,” said Lemont head coach Bill Bozue. “We are not perfect by any means. We still have a little trouble putting the ball in the basket, but our defense is coming around. “The big factor is Kelsey. When she comes back, we will have more people with playing experience and that will add to our depth.” Motto, who dislocated her kneecap after making a three-pointer against Chicago Christian, could begin practicing late this week. Others have stepped up in her absence,

including Kim Jerantowski, who had 16 points in Lemont’s 43-38 win over Reavis Tuesday. The junior guard also had 10 points in last Friday’s 44-28 victory over Richards. Jenny Hennig topped the team with 12 points in that game while Courtney Toth and Maddy Vermejan each added eight. Vermejan, a freshman, was making her first career varsity start. After traveling to take on Argo, Lemont will also be on the road for a Jan. 15 contest against T.F. South. “We want to continue to build our team defense,” Bozue said, “and hopefully get more fundamentally sound with our shooting and free throws to take advantage of our opportunities.”

For freshened-up family favorites, try making these simple, healthful changes: ■ Replace the heavy breading on chicken tenders with a flour mixture spiced with paprika, black pepper and oregano. Bake it in the oven to reduce fat and calories. ■ For a healthier take on beef stew, use lowsodium broth and serve over whole grain pasta or brown rice instead of mashed potatoes. ■ For a twist on chili, try using boneless, skinless chicken breasts with black beans and corn. Pump up the Southwest flavor with cumin, garlic powder and red pepper.

Smart substitutions Better choices for your fast food fix




When you’re hungry and pressed for time, it’s tempting to swing through the drive-through or order takeout. But these choices might cost you in calories, fat, sugar and sodium. Here are some easy ways to make smart substitutions throughout the day that are also time-saving.


Tips Tipstotohelp help lose loseweight weight

English muffin

Breakfast Latte

Eating breakfast starts your day off right and helps you control hunger. ■ Save up to 300 calories by substituting a doughnut or danish with a small English muffin and a tablespoon of your favorite nut butter. You’ll also get the benefit of protein, which gives you energy to start the day. ■ Be mindful of what you add to your morning coffee. Your on-the-go 16-ounce latte could contain as much as 330 calories, 13 grams of fat and 40 grams of sugar, and could be costing you. Substitute with a 12ounce cup of coffee with skim or soy milk, a pinch of cinnamon and a natural sweetener like honey.


You can enjoy a satisfying, convenient and smart meal whether you’re at home, work or out to eat. ■ When you have to have that classic allbeef patty, less is more. Keep it simple and balanced with a whole grain bun, ketchup, lettuce and tomato. If you’re more adventurous, try turkey and veggie burgers for fewer calories and less saturated fat.


BOOMER BOOMER HEALTH HEALTH Turkey burger on wheat bun


Potato chips

Snacks can be part of a smart diet — you just have to enjoy the right kinds of snacks in moderation. ■ If you’re hungry for something sweet, opt for a low-fat Greek yogurt sweetened with honey, which is much lower in calories than a milkshake and offers probiotics. ■ If you’re craving something salty, try a handful of lightly salted almonds, which are packed with protein and will help you feel satisfied so you won’t be tempted by chips or other salty snacks.


Dinner Being smart about portion sizes as well as your entrèe choices lets you stay on track and enjoy your evening meal. ■ Divide up your entree — either share it or ask for a to-go box and put half of your food in the container as soon as it arrives. Not only do you get a more appropriate portion, but you also stretch your dining dollar into two meals instead of just one. Milkshakes
