  • Tools For Brain Health Are In Your Kitchen Oct 15, 2014 4:33 PM
    Food can be one of the most effective weapons in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease, University of Arizona College of Medicine professor Marwan Sabbagh, M.D., recently told an audience at Windsor Park, a faith-based, not-for-profit continuing care retirement community administered by Covenant Retirement Communities. This is good news for people of all ages. Dr. Sabbagh explained that neurodegeneration begins 25 years before symptoms appear. A researcher, educator and practicing physician, Dr. Sabbagh is director of research at Banner Sun Health Research Institute, one of the world’s most prominent Alzheimer’s disease research institutions. He co-authored “The Alzheimer’s Prevention Cookbook” and was in Carol Stream to conduct an educational seminar entitled “Tools for Brain Healthy are in Your Kitchen,” for senior adults at Windsor Park. “According to the Alzheimer’s Association, one in 10 Americans 65 and older has Alzheimer’s disease,” says Karen Larson, executive director at Windsor Park “While we can’t change some risk factors, mainly age and heredity, we can change others. Dr. Sabbagh explained how simple, yet beneficial changes in our diet help could help prevent Alzheimer’s and improve our memory.” Although there is still no cure for the Alzheimer’s disease, Dr. Sabbagh explained that research has shown that consuming specific foods that are high in specific nutrients can lower the risk of cognitive decline. He noted that foods that contain thiamine, pyridoxine, folic acid or cyanocobalamin can help fight brain diseases. Dr. Sabbagh provided tips on easy ways to adopt a brain healthy diet. They include: • Reduce the intake of food high in fat and cholesterol. • Consume a diet rich in dark vegetables and fruits. • Include herbs, fruits and vegetables with high Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity scores. • Eat fish that are high in omega-3 fatty acids. • Follow the guidelines of a Mediterranean diet. “Brain health begins in the kitchen,” states Sabbagh. “Incorporating the correct fruits, vegetables and spices, such as cloves or rosemary, into your meals and making small changes to your diet can have a dramatic affect on your memory and brain health.” Dr. Sabbagh noted that a nutrient like resveratrol can be found in unexpected foods and is available as a supplement. A naturally occurring phytoalexin found in red wine, resveratrol has been shown to have anti-cancer, anti-aging and life-prolonging effects. Recent research published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry shows that it also has the power to enhance memory and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s.

     
  • Conservation Foundation land purchase only temporary protection from gas station complex Oct 15, 2014 4:36 PM
    Signs were put up at the northeast corner of Route 53 and Butterfield Road imploring voters to “save this land” in support of the Butterfield Park District’s Open Space referendum to permanently preserve the land from development. If voters don’t pass the Nov. 4 referendum, the land would be put back on the market for sale. And that could put the development of a large convenience store and 10-pump gas station at the location back in play. The Butterfield Park District is holding a public information meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. at their offices at 21W370 Butterfield Rd., Lombard to answer questions residents may have about the referendum. The Conservation Foundation stepped in to help park district residents find a way to purchase the land at the corner of Route 53 and Butterfield Road, after a request was presented to the DuPage County Board for permission to build what would become DuPage County’s largest gas station complex. The non-profit organization has agreed to hold onto the property for a year while the district works out a way to buy it. In August, the Butterfield Park Board agreed to place a referendum on the ballot for $2,850,000 to purchase and improve the land, and to make other needed improvements on their remaining six park sites. The area in question sits across from Hidden Lake Forest Preserve, is adjacent to existing open space and the park district headquarters. “We often do this sort of thing to help park districts and other agencies purchase the land for preservation,” Conservation Foundation President/CEO Brook McDonald said. “But it’s not a done deal. If the referendum doesn’t pass, we will be forced to put the land back on the market to recoup our costs. We can’t afford to take that kind of financial hit.” The Conservation Foundation took out a loan and paid $1.5 million for the land after a request was made to the DuPage County Board by Buck’s Inc. to build a mega-gas facility on the empty lot. The company filed a lawsuit in April against the county when it denied that request. The lawsuit was dropped after The Conservation Foundation’s purchase. McDonald predicted it would be difficult for the county board to deny another request for the development on that piece of land if the referendum fails. “This isn’t a done deal,” McDonald said. “This land is not yet protected. The voters in the park district will have to decide on Nov. 4 whether they want it as open space or a mega development. It simply boils down to that.” The question voters will see on the ballot reads: Shall the Butterfield Park District, DuPage County, Illinois, acquire, maintain, improve and protect the land at the Northeast corner of Illinois Route 56 and Illinois Route 53 for nature areas, open space and park and recreation purpose, improve trails, outdoor parks amenities, gardens and passive recreation areas, accessibility, safety, and programming space for children and adults through said Park District and issue its bonds to the amount of $2,985,000 for the purpose of pay the costs thereof? =================== The Conservation Foundation is one of the region’s largest and oldest private conservation organizations -- with more than 4,000 members and donors, and more than 500 volunteers who contribute 20,000 hours per year. Work is focused in DuPage, Kane, Kendall and Will Counties to preserve and restore nature in your neighborhood. Find out more at theconservationfoundation.org.

     
  • Forgotten Chicagoans rediscovered; 8,000 names identified in Chicago cemetery records Oct 15, 2014 6:22 PM

  • COD Instructor Receives Prestigious Award Oct 15, 2014 4:49 PM
    College of DuPage instructor Dr. Michael Fagel recently received the first ever Security Book of the Year Award by the American Society of Industrial Security (ASIS) International for his book “Crisis Management and Emergency Planning: Preparing for Today’s Challenges.” “I am honored to receive this award,” Fagel said. “This book was written to educate people and help prepare them for the future. I never thought it would be nominated for anything, much less win.” Founded in 1955, ASIS International is a not-for-profit organization of more than 38,000 security practitioners worldwide, which advocates for the role and value of the security management profession to business, the media, government entities and the public. Fagel was officially recognized during an award ceremony and book signing at ASIS International’s 60th annual conference in Atlanta, GA. He said he was honored to receive this prestigious recognition from admired peers in the field. “The six authors on the committee have published more than 45 notable books between them,” Fagel said. “It was humbling but great to be welcomed into that group.” The author of several published books on topics related to safety and security, Fagel has nearly 40 years of experience working in emergency management, fire services, industrial safety, law enforcement, rescue and government. He is a Homeland Security Analyst at the Argonne National Laboratories, has spent 10 years at FEMA in their Occupational Safety and Health Cadre. Fagel has responded to incidents and disasters such as the Oklahoma City Bombing where he worked as a safety officer and CISD de briefer, and spent over 100 days at the World Trade Center for FDNY at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks. He has provided his skills and experience as a subject matter expert at several organizations including the National Organization for Research (NORC) at the University of Chicago, the National Center for Security and Preparedness (NCSP) at the University of Albany and the National Center for Biomedical Research and Training (NCBRT) at the Academy of Counter-Terrorist Education at Louisiana State University. Fagel also teaches at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Northern Illinois University, Eastern Kentucky University and Aurora University. He has also taught at the University of Chicago, Northwestern University and Benedictine University. He has written over 300 articles on safety & disaster planning and served on the National Domestic Preparedness Office SLAG team (NDPO) at the FBI in Washington. Fagel has recently signed on with College of DuPage to teach new classes on Terrorism Planning and Response as well as Homeland Security, at the Homeland Security Training Institute. He said he was impressed with the College’s recently constructed Homeland Security Education Center. “I have taught homeland security all over the world, at numerous facilities; from palaces to tents and all types of classrooms,” Fagel said. “The facilities at the HEC are second to none. They are world class in both design and implementation.” Fagel added that he is proud to be a part of College of DuPage and that the College’s goals align perfectly with his own. “I am proud to be affiliated with the HSTI program at COD.” Fagel said. “I think our mission, which has been my mission since 9/11, is to create a world-class environment for training and educating the leaders of the future and that is what this facility and staff is focused on.” Housing the College’s Criminal Justice and Fire Science/EMS programs, as well as the Police Department, State-certified Fire Academy and the Suburban Law Enforcement Academy, the 66,000 square-foot Homeland Security Education Center is the only comprehensive multijurisdictional training center of its kind in the Midwest. The facility features a wide range of high-tech training spaces including a full-scale indoor street scene, forensics and cybercrimes labs, a hazardous materials leak simulator, a two-story smoke room with moveable walls, a full-size ambulance, an outdoor training tower for confined rescue and rappelling and a command center designed to instruct National Incident Management System protocols. Looking back on his career, Fagel said that the biggest challenge he has faced comes less from the actual threat of emergencies than from the underlying opinion of what safety and security entails. “Safety and security are not just plans; they are a continuous process,” Fagel said. “It’s not just guards, gates and guns; it’s an underlying attitude and approach. Decision makers in organizations need to understand that risk is an ever-evolving threat. Too often, people wait until it’s too late and make poor decisions based on knee-jerk reactions.” Fagel said that through his work he hopes to train the leaders of tomorrow and to train as many people as possible to be “comfortable, cognizant, aware and trained to take over and take care of the next generations.” He added that after all this time working in safety and security, his primary focus and motivating principle is simply to make a difference. “I’m going to do as much as I can for as long as I can for as many people as I can. That’s really what drives me,” he said.

  • Downers Grove Family Celebrates 5th Birthday While Raising Money and Awareness for Apraxia Oct 15, 2014 4:43 PM
    Three years ago, Nevaeh was diagnosed with a neurological speech disorder called apraxia, something her mother, Nichole Latori, nor grandmother, Terri Murrin had never heard of. After spending the past three years researching the disorder and finding the best treatment for Nevaeh, Terri and Nichole decided to change this lack of awareness. On September 12th and 13th they hosted an Apraxia Fund Raiser Yard Sale. They filled Terri’s garage, front yard and 5 tents with items donated for sale. Every person who came to the sale was given information about Childhood Apraxia of Speech is very challenging and complicated neurological speech disorder in children. This little known disorder makes it difficult or impossible for children to accurately produce sounds, syllables, and/or words despite having a good understanding of language. The family raised $1,902.00 and a family member’s company will be matching that amount. A total of $3,804.00 will be donated to the Walk for Children with Apraxia of Speech on Saturday, October 18th which also happens to be Nevaeh’s 5th birthday. The Walk for Children with Apraxia of Speech is held across the country as a means to heighten awareness and funding. Proceeds from the walk will benefit the local apraxia programs through The Apraxia Connection and national programs and research of the Childhood Apraxia of Spreech Association of North America (CASANA).

     
  • Nine years for woman who supplied fatal dose of heroin in Wheaton Oct 15, 2014 4:55 PM
    A 34-year-old Summit woman was sentenced to nine years in prison Wednesday for supplying her friend with a fatal dose of heroin in 2012 in Wheaton. Jennifer Nere will be required to serve 75 percent of the sentence before being eligible for parole. She also will receive credit for 419 days already spent in custody, DuPage County Judge Daniel Guerin said. Nere was just the second person to be charged with, tried and convicted on drug-induced homicide charges in DuPage. A jury of 12 also convicted Nere in August of the lesser charge of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. “This is not a typical case of homicide as we know it,” said Assistant State’s Attorney Jae Kwon. “It’s sad all the way around. This case has devastated multiple families.” Nere brought heroin to her friend, 32-year-old Wheaton resident Augustina Taylor, during the late-night hours of June 27, 2012, following a family party celebrating Taylor’s release after a year in prison. In the early morning hours of June 28, 2012, Taylor was found dead in her mother’s bathroom. Her death was ruled an overdose from a mixture of cocaine and heroin. Guerin called the interaction between Taylor and Nere that night a “deadly game of Russian roulette.” “But the focus today is not on the victim’s actions. For that she lost her life,” Guerin said. “And the defendant must pay with her freedom.” A teary-eyed Nere addressed Taylor’s family when given a chance to speak. “I’m very sorry. That was a stupid decision that I made,” Nere said. “I never want to touch drugs again. I miss my kids more than anything.” During the trial, prosecutors played a video and read a letter in which Nere admitted to bringing Taylor the “rock and blow” in an old sock she had previously used to wipe blood from one of her own track marks. Nere’s attorney, David Gaughan, sought the minimum sentence of six years. “The best hope to come from this tragedy is that Jennifer gets out and helps the next Tina or Jennifer get off drugs or keeps the next Tina or Jennifer from getting into drugs,” Gaughan said. Prosecutors said the case is yet another difficult story about the use of heroin in the county. “While we have made some progress in educating the public about the dangers of heroin use, we continue to see an alarming rate of heroin overdose deaths,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin said in a news release. “The circumstances of this case are particularly disheartening considering that the defendant and the victim were friends.”

  • Author Andy Crouch to Speak on “Redeeming the Gift of Power” at Wheaton College October 15 Oct 13, 2014 5:04 PM
    Writer, editor and producer Andy Crouch will speak on the topic of “Redeeming the Gift of Power” at Wheaton College at 7 p.m. October 15. Crouch, author of Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling (InterVarsity Press 2008) and Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power (InterVarsity Press 2014), is the executive editor of Christianity Today magazine. “I aim to start a hopeful and honest conversation about power—the power we have, the power students acquire through a college education, and the ways power has been distorted through privilege and status,” Crouch says. “I’m excited to share the ways thinking about the image of God as a central theological theme has helped me see how culture, power and other similarly big themes come together in a deep and generative biblical narrative.” “As someone who has been an important voice in evangelicalism for many years, Andy Crouch is really an ideal person to speak to our community at a time when there is a lot changing about what it means to be an evangelical in the United States,” says anthropology professor Dr. Brian Howell. “He is a very astute observer of cultural life, and an excellent communicator who can translate difficult ideas into very accessible forms.” The lecture is free and open to the public. Crouch’s lecture, which is co-sponsored by Wheaton’s Department of Sociology & Anthropology, the Center for Applied Christian Ethics, and Opus: The Art of Work, is part of this year’s Ivan Fahs Memorial Symposium. The Ivan Fahs Memorial Symposium, held in memory of longtime Wheaton sociology professor Ivan Fahs, takes place each fall and consists of a lecture and chapel message given by notable sociologists or anthropologists. Past symposia can be viewed here. This event will be held in Barrows Auditorium in the east wing of the Billy Graham Center, which is located at 500 College Avenue in Wheaton. For more information, contact the Department of Sociology & Anthropology at 630.752.5036. Wheaton College (Wheaton, Ill.) is a coeducational Christian liberal arts college noted for its rigorous academics, integration of faith and learning, and consistent ranking among the top liberal arts colleges in the country.

Tickets are $5 per person and available at the Paramount Theatre box office or online www.classiccinemas.com. The event is sponsored by WVLI 92.7, WFAV 95.1, WIVR 101.7 and WYUR 103.7.

The film is considered to be one of the best and most influential musical films of all time.
