  • Carol Stream Pastor Leads Run for a Life 5K Oct. 18 Oct 13, 2014 4:53 PM
    Anita Frederick, a Carol Stream pastor, is leading an effort to rescue babies in extreme need in Mozambique through Run for a Life. Run for a Life is a 5K and one-mile fun run to be held in Bierman Park in Carol Stream on October 18th. One hundred percent of the net proceeds will go to the Tessa Grace Nutrition Center, in the Sofala region of Mozambique, to provide milk, food supplements and health checks for babies ages 0-2 who would otherwise die. Mothers too malnourished and sick to nurse their babies walk 5 kilometers . . . 10 kilometers . . . even farther to bring them to Tessa Grace. Run for a Life gives local residents the opportunity to participate in their journey through a 5K or one-mile run/walk. “These babies would literally starve without our help,” reports Frederick, “The moms have no other recourse.” She recently returned from her fifth visit to Tessa Grace. “Every time I visit, hold the lively, squirming babies, and see the tears of hope and joy in the eyes of their mothers, I am so thankful for the privilege of making a life-giving difference in the lives of others.” Online registration for the 5K is $30 for those 16 and up, and $10 for youth ages 10-15. Ages 9 and under are free. Register at https://www.signmeup.com/101980. Race-day registration is available for an additional $5, starting at 8:30 on the day of the event. Frederick’s passion is clear when she speaks about the nutrition center in Mozambique. “I have met adults in Mozambique that ate tree roots during times of hunger. But what can they give babies who are not old enough for solids yet? The rice water they feed them only prolongs the starvation process.” “Since we started, more than 500 babies have been rescued,” continues Frederick. “I am here to say that ordinary people can make a difference, rescue lives, and bring hope where there is none. It costs so little—mostly just saying YES.” Tessa Grace is a ministry of Children’s Relief, International, a 501(c)(3) Christian organization. Frederick and her husband, Dave, are pastors at the DuPage Vineyard in Carol Stream.

    A Carol Stream letter to the editor: The Democrats have been trying to win votes by touting another minimum wage hike, claiming it will boost the economy. I wrote a letter to the editor on this in 2009 when it was last raised. Did the economy get a boost over the past five years from the last raise?

    Governor Pat Quinn visited the Addison Park District on Saturday, October 4 to publicly announce $7.1 Million awarded to several municipal Park Districts located in DuPage County. The grant money provided through the Park & Recreation Facility Construction (PARC) program is awarded to park districts located in Addison, Bartlett, Hanover Park and Roselle. Addison Park District will receive $1.8 million as part of a matching grant to renovate Community Recreation Center. This facility located on the east side of Addison is the Park District’s administration office, one of the preschool centers, home to the Active Adults senior club and several other programs and special events. Concept plans are in place for the $3.5 Million renovation which includes upgrading the multi-purpose rooms, providing ADA-compliant access for patrons with limited mobility, and replacing inefficient HVAC and lighting throughout the building. “DuPage County communities are great places to live and work, and these park projects will provide the additional recreational opportunities they need to keep attracting new residents and businesses,” Governor Quinn said. “These parks play a key role in helping promote healthy lifestyles through recreation and it’s important that we maintain them.” The grants awarded Saturday are part of $50 million available through the Parks and Recreational Facility Construction (PARC) program, which is administered by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) and funded by Governor Quinn’s Illinois Jobs Now! Construction program. PARC provides funding to eligible local governments for park and recreation construction projects. Eligible projects include land acquisition, development, architectural planning, construction, rehabilitation and improvements. “These grants are vitally important for communities seeking to build capacity for recreational opportunity,” IDNR Director Marc Miller said. “These projects, upgrades and additions will help (these) four park districts keep up with the ever-growing demand for recreation close to where people live and work.” Addison Park District is committed to providing the highest quality recreational opportunities and open space for everyone.

  • COD Students Hike the Tour du Mont Blanc in Europe Oct 7, 2014 4:55 PM
    Twelve participants in College of DuPage’s Field Studies program recently returned from nearly two weeks in Europe where they hiked more than 100 miles, including the celebrated Tour du Mont Blanc. Click here to view photos from the trip. Beginning their trip in Chamonix, France, the class hiked for 12 days and more than 100 miles. They circled the Mount Blanc massif and walked through some of Western Europe’s most picturesque alpine scenery, crossing the countryside of France, Italy and Switzerland. At the end of each day’s journey, lodging arrangements ranged from rustic mountain refuges deep in the mountains to four-star hotels offering every amenity. According to Gib Egge, coordinator of Experiential Education and Training, the hike could not have gone better given the physical and logistical challenges. Egge said despite the spectacular landscapes and breathtaking views, there was another component of the trip that stood out. “The highlight for me was our group, a diverse cross-section of the DuPage community coming together to attempt a very difficult task,” Egge said. “Among us were fifteen people, three of whom were 70 years or older as well as a student who is legally blind that completed the trail with the help from a longtime friend.” One member of the class was Western Springs resident Kathy Fauth, an avid hiker who viewed the chance to hike the Tour du Mont Blanc as an opportunity of a lifetime. While the scenic beauty of the area impressed her, it was the camaraderie and diversity of the group that impressed her. “The scenery was stunning,” Fauth said. “I will always remember hiking with the international community and forming relationships with people from all over the world.” After retiring from her career as a veterinarian a few years ago, Fauth enrolled in and completed the Nursing degree program at College of DuPage, a move she made because she wanted to become involved in volunteerism. She has taken several Field Study trips through the College, and named Egge as a primary reason for choosing this adventure. “I knew this trip would be top-notch,” Fauth said. “Gib is just an excellent guide. He does a wonderful job with these excursions, which is truly is a service to this community.” Lombard resident Nanette Bauer said that while she thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the trip, it was the companionship and camaraderie of the group, with one participant in particular, that she enjoyed most. “The best part of this trip was sharing this outstanding experience with my daughter,” Bauer said. “I also enjoyed the company of the other wonderful participants, seven of whom I’ve traveled with on other COD trips and six new trekkers with whom I will hopefully enjoy having another future travel experience with someday.” Bauer, who enrolls nearly every semester in a yoga class at the College, said she has participated in a Field Studies trip with COD almost each year since 2000. She added that she feels the “anticipation is half the fun of travel,” and said that the Tour du Mont Blanc was something she had wanted to do for a long time. “I have always wanted to have a travel experience that involved hiking in the Alps,” Bauer said. “To have the opportunity to accomplish this under the direction of COD’s Field Study program, particularly under the flawless organizational skills and quiet guidance of Gib Egge, was not to be missed.” Bauer added that the group did experience a day of challenging weather, but that only added to the enjoyment and sense of accomplishment she brought home from the trip. “I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of the weather, navigating the adverse trail conditions and enjoying the new-found confidence that came with getting to the next destination safely,” Bauer said. Egge said that the hikers knew they were in for a challenge that day after waking up to a steady, hard rain, “the kind you know is going to be here for a while,” at the Refuge des Mottets in France. “We had to climb over 2,500 feet and then descend 3,000 feet to our next overnight stop,” said Egge. “At this point, we had been climbing and descending thousands of feet and were in pretty good shape physically, but we were not in shape for the weather we were about to experience at this pass.” With each step, the hikers increased their altitude and their visibility became more restricted as they entered the clouds and the winds picked up. Reaching the Col de la Seigne, the natural border between France and Italy, the class met with very low visibility and intense winds that made footing precarious. Finally, the class descended into Italy and finally, into better weather. “Even though this was a difficult experience for the class as a whole, it turned out to be one of our favorite moments as we were all challenged, helped one another out and accomplished our goal,” Egge said. The Field and Experiential Learning, Study Abroad and Global Education department offers a variety of credit classes that use the world as its classroom, including an Outdoor Adventure program and domestic and international classes in a variety of subjects. The College has offered many successful international trips since 1970 and has taken students to more than 80 countries throughout all seven continents.

The Children’s program for instance starts with 2 years of age and can go until the child reaches 6 years old. The elementary program continues on with 7 to 10 years of age and includes 2 levels. Once a student wishes to commit to a more intense and demanding program they can enter the Youth which also has two levels or Pre-Professional program that has one level. A student will be placed in the program and level that is appropriate based on a complimentary class that he/she attends. Guillermo Leyva trained at the Professional school of Arts in Camaguey, Cuba. After he graduated Guillermo began dancing professionally at the Ballet de Camaguey under Fernando Alonso. He danced with this company for 11 years as a Principal dancer. Later he danced with The Ballet de Monterrey in Mexico, under the direction of Ann Marie D’ Angelo, Fernando Alonso, and Fernando Bujones. He also danced as a Principal dancer for the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, Lexington Ballet, Lyric Opera of Chicago , and the Royal de Wallonie in Belgium. Vilma Machin was born in La Havana, Cuba. She started her training at the age of nine at the National Ballet School of Cuba. Vilma graduated in 2001 at the top of her class as both Dancer and Teacher. She then joined the National Ballet Company under the direction of Alicia Alonso where she then toured Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Later she traveled to the United States where she danced with the Miami Classical Ballet company as a soloist.

  • COD faculty to live-blong board meeting Oct 7, 2014 4:49 PM
    Volunteers from the College of DuPage Faculty Association (CODFA) will live-blog the College of DuPage Board of Trustees Meeting on Thursday evening, Oct 16, beginning at 7pm in Student Services Center 2200. CODFA bloggers cover Board of Trustees meetings in order to keep their own members informed of Board activities and decisions, as well as to share information with the larger community served by the College of DuPage. College of DuPage Trustees are elected by the citizens of District 502. Citizens unable to attend the board meeting can read the blog at this link: http://codfaculty.org/blogs/bot/. The board packet can be downloaded from the college website starting 48 hours before the meeting. See http://www.cod.edu/about/board_of_trustees/. The past several board meetings have seen an escalation of conflict among the trustees themselves, as well as between trustees and citizens, over President Brueder’s conduct during his tenure at the college. The Board of Trustees responded last month by moving comments from the public that did not directly address the evening’s agenda to the end of the meeting. This resulted in the majority of public comments being made after midnight
