When Nancy Lueder’s family broke the news that her chronic snoring was keeping them up at night, the 48-year-old Tinley Park woman refused to believe them at first. “I don’t snore,” she’d adamantly reply, brushing off their complaints. But then again, she seldom felt refreshed when she awoke in the morning. In fact, most Saturdays, Lueder would wake up and head straight for the couch, where she’d snooze for two or three hours more before starting her weekend. And when the family drove to Florida for vacations, Lueder spent 16 of the 19 hours in the car dozing, waking up only for meal and bathroom breaks. Then there were the frequent choking spells that woke her up at night. “I’d stop breathing and get sick to my stomach,” she recalls. Daytime sleepiness, frequent naps and low energy were starting to take their toll. Lueder finally admitted she might have a sleep disorder. After a visit with her primary care doctor, Angelo Tsakopoulos, M.D., Lueder scheduled a consultation with the Ingalls Sleep Center in Tinley Park, where Bsher Touleimat, M.D., board-certified sleep specialist and pulmonologist, ordered a professional sleep study. “When I went in for the study, I thought I slept the whole night through,” she said. “But when I got the results, they told me I had slept for only two hours and stopped breathing almost 100 times. It really scared me.” Lueder was diagnosed with sleep apnea, a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. The most common symptoms are loud snoring and feeling tired after a full night’s sleep. “Most people who have sleep apnea don’t know they have it because it only occurs during

at Marcus Theaters Our summer films are so successful and the children have had such a tremendous amount of fun while enjoying a great learning experience that we’ve decided to let them create and direct their own short films this season. In this amazing program the students, under the direction of the instructor, will have the opportunity to write and direct their own 3-to-6 minute films which will be cast with the campers themselves. Those children not directing or writing will be assigned as assistant directors, assistant camera crew, editing staff or other crew positions along with their acting roles. Everything from concept to finished production will be taught. This unique experience will prepare them for work in many other film opportunities. Our equipment includes a professional 3-chip digital video camera with synchronous sound as well as editing software with multi-track design that incorporates music, voice-over, sound effects, graphics and dialogue. The finished films will be shown on a Saturday morning in late October or early November at Marcus Theaters, Orland Park – on the big screen! Each student enrolled in the camp will be given one free ticket for the performance. Additional tickets will be available for $9 each. The instructor will assist with all students’ scripts as needed. To obtain detailed information about script parameters, please contact Mr. DeWalt at MyCoveredBridge@aol.com. Advanced submission of scripts will be permitted. You may want to enroll in one of our other summer acting classes to compliment your work in this program. Enrollment is limited so please register early. No previous acting experience is required.

Youth Swimming Lessons

Swimming lessons at the White Water Canyon Water Park are broken into four groups based on your child’s skill level. General Note for all swim lessons – classes are held rain or shine. On inclement days, safety skills and lessons will be taught. There are no make-ups for illnesses or vacations.

Beginning Group Swim Lessons

This first level of swim lessons is designed to meet the needs of the beginning swimmer. This course will develop a comfort level in the water, prepare the child to swim, and for those children, who are developmentally ready, teach beginning swim skills. If your child is just beginning to put their face in the water, this is the class you should select for them. Program #: 216305 Location: White Water Canyon Water Park Age: 4-12 Fee: $60 Resident / $90 Non-Resident Class Day Date Time A Monday-Thursday June 10-20 9:00-9:45 a.m. B Monday-Thursday June 24-July 4* 10:00-10:45 a.m. C Monday-Thursday July 8-18 9:00-9:45 a.m. D Monday-Thursday July 22-August 1 10:00-10:45 a.m. E Saturday June 8-July 27 10:00-10:45 a.m. *No class July 4, make up class will be Sunday, July 7

Intermediate Group Swim Lessons: Level 1

In this level, swimmers can put their face in the water and are beginning forward movement through the water without touching the bottom. They will learn skills to prepare them for the freestyle stroke. Ultimately, children will learn the skills necessary to be able to jump into any depth of water and swim back to the wall without assistance. If your child will willingly put their face in the water this is the class you should select for them. Program #: 216307 Location: White Water Canyon Water Park Age: 4-12 Fee: $60 Resident / $90 Non-Resident Class Day Date Time A Monday-Thursday June 10-20 9:00-9:45 a.m. B Monday-Thursday June 24-July 4* 10:00-10:45 a.m. C Monday-Thursday July 8-18 9:00-9:45 a.m. D Monday-Thursday July 22-August 1 10:00-10:45 a.m. E Saturday June 8-July 27 10:00-10:45 a.m. *No class July 4, make up class will be Sunday, July 7

Intermediate Group Swim Lessons: Level 2

This level is designed for swimmers who can jump into any depth of water and are just beginning to learn freestyle. In this level, children will learn to tread water, dive, and the basic elements of freestyle. Upon mastering this level, students will be able to swim freestyle 30 feet (approx. the width of a 6 lane pool) with their face in the water. If your child can jump into any depth of water and reach safety unassisted, this is the class you should select for them.
