  • DuPage forest preserve candidate vows to make seat a full-time job Oct 10, 2014 5:30 AM
    A Democratic challenger seeking a seat on the DuPage County Forest Preserve Commission says he’ll quit his job to become a full-time member of the board if he’s elected next month. Before Evan Wolfe submits his two weeks’ notice, however, voters in forest preserve District 1 need to decide whether they want to make a change. Wolfe’s opponent in the Nov. 4 election — Republican incumbent Marsha Murphy — has spent the past 12 years representing the district, which covers all or portions of Addison, Bensenville, Bloomingdale, Elmhurst, Glendale Heights, Itasca, Lombard, Roselle, Villa Park and Wood Dale.

  • DuPage Park Districts receive $7.1 Million to Improve Facilities Oct 7, 2014 4:59 PM
    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. The 2014 seasonal Fun Guide is available in print and online at www.addisonparks.org with a full curriculum of leisure activities for all ages and lifestyles.

  • New Ballet School in Wheaton Oct 7, 2014 4:50 PM
    Owners Guillermo Leyva and Vilma Machin have designed four programs that include five levels of Ballet training. 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. After leaving the Miami Classical Ballet Company she joined the Alma Dance Company as a Principal dancer. As teachers, Guillermo and Vilma are committed to pass on their knowledge and experiences to new generations and provide young students with the opportunity to perform and to discover new ways to express their dreams through movement, and develop the artistic awareness of these young individuals. Come and join us in the next term which will begin October 27th. We have morning classes available besides the afternoon program. We are currently offering classes for home schooled students and /or college students available during the day that wish to take their ballet training to the next level. We encourage you to visit the training facility at 246 East Geneva Road in Wheaton. You can contact us by calling 630-580-9784, or email info.almadanceschool@gmail.com. “Come and try a complimentary day of classes, says owner Vilma Machin.

  • History of Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome at Bloomingdale Public Library Oct 3, 2014 5:06 PM
    Mark Micale, Associate Professor of History and the History of Medicine at University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and author of Hysterical Men: the Hidden History of Male Nervous Illness, will appear at Bloomingdale Public Library on Monday, October 6 at 7:00 p.m. to examine the cultural history of post-traumatic stress disorder in a lecture called Hysterical Men: From Shell Shock to PTSD. There have been many names for post-traumatic stress disorder over the years, but trauma after battle has always been with us. During the Civil War, post-traumatic stress disorder was referred to as Soldier’s Heart, with symptoms such as chest-thumping, anxiety, and breathlessness. During World War I, the term used to describe this disorder was shell shock. Not only have the terms used to describe this illness evolved over the years, but so has society’s response to this prevalent disorder. “We think this is an important issue for many members of the community, and we are looking forward to hosting Professor Micale so he can shed some light on the history of PTSD and society’s reaction to it.” said Julie Keating, Adult Services Department Head at Bloomingdale Public Library. This lecture is part of a month-long community reading event called On the Same Page. Bloomingdale Public Library, Roselle Public Library, and Itasca Community Library annually invite all community members to read the same book and take part in a month of book discussions, lectures, concerts, and programs revolving around the themes of the book. This year’s choice is The Light between Oceans by M. L. Stedman. The book, set in post-World War I Australia, explores the consequences of the choices we make. To register for this program, call 630-924-2733. More information about the programs in this series can be found at www.mybpl.org.
