Naperville looks to pave way for 'heritage walk' Jan 16, 2015 10:26 AM
A group of Downtown Naperville stakeholders will be working this spring and summer on plans to improve wayfinding signs that could eventually incorporate elements of the city's history and culture. “We all recognize that there's a great many historical assets in the community,” said Rick Hitchcock, a downtown advisory commission member who is president of Hitchcock Design Group.
How many food carts are too many in downtown Naperville? Jan 16, 2015 4:26 PM
The last time Naperville City Council members were asked to consider the presence of food carts in the downtown, they decided only two should be allowed. On Tuesday, they will consider a proposal that would allow three. “That seems like a shift. Didn’t we approve just two?” said Katie Wood, an advisory commission member who is executive director of the Downtown Naperville Alliance. “I think it’s a stretch, personally, that we’ve gone really to three again when we had two locations, so one would assume that meant two vendors.”

The DuPage Community Foundation Grant Helps Serenity House Counseling Services, Inc. Participants with Housing, Counseling and Peer-to-Peer Prevention Program Jan 15, 2015 5:38 PM
For more than 25 years, Serenity House has expanded substance abuse services and capacity throughout DuPage County to meet the increasing demand for treatment. Serenity House serves hundreds of men and women each year in residential, outpatient and recovery home programs. The programs provide a holistic approach that focuses on integrating men and women back into their surroundings as self-sufficient, productive members of their communities while improving the quality of life for their families. One of the programs of Serenity House is the Peer-to-Peer Prevention Partnership Program which began as a result of the 12-step recovery program. “Part of this is personal for each young man and woman who participates,” said Lisa Snipes, development director for Serenity House. “It’s an honor for them and part of their recovery process to go into the schools and share their stories, many times with their peers.” The Peer-to-Peer Prevention Partnership Program is in its fourth year. The typical ages of participants speaking to the high school students in the peer-to-peer program is 19-24, which is close to the age of high school students. “We’ve had speakers relate to the high school students by saying ‘I was sitting where you are a year ago,’” Snipes said. “Ten years ago, the typical age of people in the recovery program averaged at 30. Today, we’re seeing a lot of younger people reaching out for help, especially in the last five years with the rising addiction to heroin. It’s a drug like no other and addictive like none we’ve ever encountered.” One recent peer-to-peer program was held at Wheaton North High School. A panel of peer prevention speakers presented a program during the drug education unit of a health and physical education class. As an exercise to accompany the presentation, instructor Kevin Formanski asked his class to describe a feeling, fact and memory of the presentation. Here are a few of the students’ responses: Feeling—”I was shocked when I heard that a friend’s mother supplied the addict with drugs.” Fact—”An addiction to drugs takes away your friends, family, possessions and hobbies.” Memory—”I’ve been shot before and I’d rather get shot again than go through withdrawal again,” as told by “Mike,” one of the presenters. “With illegal drugs in DuPage County—especially heroin—the value of this program is huge,” said Formanski. “For the students to sit and listen to people who have gone through using drugs and thinking that they wouldn’t become addicted, the value is priceless.” Serenity House has been providing this program to Wheaton North High School for the past three years, said Formanski. “I applaud the work that Serenity House is doing. It really impacts the kids.” “There’s so much hope. When a young person comes to you broken and defeated, lonely and scared, and they don’t know where to turn and then one month later you see them and they realize that they saw a glimpse of what recovery can be, it makes what we do here all worth it,” said Snipes. “Thanks to The DuPage Community Foundation, this opportunity has allowed Serenity House to have a profound impact on so many young lives.” For Donna Foyle, Serenity House recovery home program manager, the peer-to-peer program is personal. Foyle lost a son to heroin addiction three years ago and she said her family is committed to the program. “These kids have been to hell and back,” said Foyle. “If we can get across to just one kid, maybe it will help. I love hearing their stories. I watch their confidence grow and I learn something new every day.” “As a 10-year board member of Serenity House Foundation, Inc., there is complete satisfaction when I see Serenity House Counseling employees engaging clients that have been successful in not only recovery, but in regaining their own lives and becoming community members,” said Alana McBride-Piech, vice-chairman of Serenity House Foundation, Inc. “To allow the vulnerability of exposing problems in a past life to improve the lives of others is a noble cause. I consistently witness life transformations from people going through our programs, and to know they are paying it forward not only makes me thankful, but proud to be a part of a continuing source for the betterment of our community.” The peer speakers are getting their lives back together and are committed to the program. In order to speak to the students at the schools, they must take time off from work, many using vacation days to do so. “We help them set goals and get back into the mainstream of life,” said Foyle. “I love this.” About Serenity House Counseling Services, Inc.: The Serenity House Counseling Services, Inc. is a not-for-profit, community-based, comprehensive treatment facility located in Addison offering services to adult men and women recovering from chemical dependence and substance abuse.

Naperville Men’s Glee Club Organizes “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015” Jan 15, 2015 5:23 PM
The Naperville Men’s Glee Club (NMGC) is organizing “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015”, a community chorus of men and women touched by cancer. Local singers will come together starting in February to share hope and experience the rewards of musical performance. Cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, family members and other singers are invited to join. There is no cost to participate and enrollment is available at napervillemensgleeclub.org or by calling 630-448-0518. The volunteer chorus will start weekly one hour rehearsals at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 7, 2015, at The Church of The Brethren, 1020 West Jefferson, Naperville IL. Building on the success of the 2013 project, NMGC Artistic Director Bonnie Klee Roberts will again conduct “NMGC Voices of Hope”. Roberts explained, “There will be a wide variety of four-part music for the group to sing in the first rehearsal - some will be familiar to the 2013 singers but many songs will be new music to learn over the ten weeks.” Ms. Roberts continued, “It’s important for people to understand that this concert is not intended to be a fundraiser for cancer. The purpose is to gather people who have, or have had, a role in the fight against cancer and to provide an opportunity for them to feel the inspiration, thrill, and happiness that comes through weekly group singing and performance”. “I started thinking about doing Voices of Hope again during those wonderful rehearsals of the first chorus in 2013. After their performance, I received many voice mails, handwritten notes, and emails about the impact and meaning of the project. Reading their stories, I was sold on my premise of group fellowship and the inspiration of song to bring about a special kind of healing. So we decided to do Voices of Hope again in 2015” added Roberts. The Glee Club is expecting a chorus of 200+ men and women and over 110 people have already signed up. Additional information is available at napervillemensgleeclub.org or by calling 630-448-0518. “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015” will perform in concert at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 26, 2015, at Wentz Concert Hall, on the campus of North Central College, Naperville. The lobby of Wentz Hall will display “Lilly Oncology on Canvas – Expressions of a Cancer Journey”, a traveling art exhibit of award-winning paintings by cancer patients and survivors courtesy of Lilly Oncology and The National Coalition of Cancer Survivorship. Thanks to the generosity of the DuPage Community Foundation, cancer survivors may reserve and receive a complimentary concert ticket starting in April, 2015. General admission and group ticket sales will begin in April 2015. The “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015” project is supported in part by the City of Naperville SECA Fund, the Illinois Arts Council, the DuPage Community Foundation, and Genentech. The Naperville Men’s Glee Club was chartered in 1988 as a 501(c)(3) corporation. Sponsored in part by the City of Naperville, the Illinois Arts Council, the DuPage Community Foundation and many generous local businesses and citizens, they have earned a national reputation as a high caliber male chorus. The Glee Club has performed with many prestigious collegiate glee clubs (male and female) including the U. S. Naval Academy, Miami University, Penn State, Notre Dame, the University of Illinois, Pitt, Ohio University and the University of Michigan. In 2013, NMGC celebrated its 25th anniversary of “Bringing Harmony to Life” with a year of special concerts including “NMGC Voices of Hope”, the President’s Day Choral Festival honoring JFK at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D. C., and their 25th Anniversary Concert with the Varsity Men’s Glee Club from the University of Illinois.

Omar is a Palestinian baker by day who climbs over the separation wall to visit his girl Nadja. By night, he risks his life with friends to strike at the Israeli military. Arrested after the killing of an Israeli soldier, Omar becomes an informant beginning a dangerous game. Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad has made a dynamic, action-packed drama about the insoluble moral dilemmas and choices facing those on the frontlines of a conflict that shows no sign of letting up. (97 min.) Vivir es facil con los ojos cerrados (Living is easy with eyes closed)” (Spain) – Feb. 11 Directed by David Trueba It is 1966 in Spain. English teacher and die-hard Beatles fan Antonio resolves to go on a road trip to Almería to meet John Lennon, who is shooting a film there. On the journey, he picks up two young runaways: Bethlehem – a pregnant girl fleeing a convent, and Juanjo – a boy escaping a dictatorial father. ‘Living is easy with eyes closed,’ from Lennon’s “Strawberry Fields Forever,” evokes the spirit of the 60s while reflecting on a time in Spanish history when dreams seemed impossible. (108 min.) “Waste Land” (Brazil) – Feb. 18 Directed by Lucy Walker Filmed over three years, “Waste Land” documents renowned artist Vik Muniz as he journeys from Brooklyn, to his native Brazil and the world’s largest garbage dump located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. He photographs an eclectic band of “catadores,” self-designated pickers of recyclable materials. With collaboration from these inspiring characters, Muniz creates photographic images using garbage that reveal the dignity and despair of the catadores, who begin to re-imagine their life. This documentary shows the transformative power of art and the alchemy of the human spirit. (99 min.) “Wadjda” (Saudi Arabia) – Feb. 25 Directed by Haifaa al-Mansour Wadjda, a 10-year old Saudi girl living in Riyadh, dreams of owing a green bicycle that she passes every day. She wants to race against Abdullah but riding bikes is frowned upon for girls and Wadjda’s mother refuses to buy the bike. Wadjda raises the money herself by entering a Koran competition at school. She wins, but is told that the money will instead be donated to Palestine on her behalf. This is the first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first feature-length film by a female Saudi director. Wadjda presents a vivid window into a corner of the globe where cinema has been all but silenced. (98 min.) “La Vita e bella (Life is Beautiful)” (Italy) - March 4 Directed by Roberto Benigni In 1930s Italy, a carefree Jewish book keeper named Guido has a perfect life marrying a lovely woman from a nearby city.

(99 min.) “The Wind that Shakes the Barley” (Ireland) - March 18 Directed by Ken Loach Set in rural Ireland in the 1920s, this war drama tells the fictional story of two County Cork brothers Damien and Teddy O’Donovan who join the Irish Republican Army to fight for Irish independence from the United Kingdom.
