BY TRACY GRUEN Contributor N i LES Wearing yellow shirts and blue overalls, a group of minions from "Despicable Me" skated their hearts out and took home a first place trophy. The 33rd annual Sweetheart Open Figure Skating competition was held at celand skating rink in Niles on Saturday, Feb. 16 and Sunday, Feb. 17. celand skaters won first place for their theater production program that was based on the movie, "Despicable Me." About 30 skaters from celand, ages five to adult, participated in the performance. 'lt represents celand," said Amy Forbes, celand's skating director. The Sweetheart Open featured about 300 skaters from the Chicagoland area, including Robert Crown, Twin Rink, Northbrook and more. The two-day event included 10 different contests, including solo, couple and team competitions. Audience members were also entertained by fun light-hearted programs, which included two skaters dressed as characters from the movie 'Monsters nc." dancing to 'f Didn't Have You." Family and friends were busy purchasing flowers at celand to give to the performers who participated in various events, including freestyle, artistic, rhythmic, synchronized events and more.

ROB HART-Sun-Times Media both "nervous and excited" to take home the first place trophy. Hotca said that last year the celand team took home second place at the competition. "We kind ofjust upgraded," Hotca said with a smile. Nadia Castillo, Wyatt and Kalyn Zwik and Gianna Pauly were looking forward to the brief awards ceremony on the ice that took place during the cornpetition on Sunday, Dec. 17.

'She's made a lot of good friends," said Ahne, about why she is glad her daughter is involved in ice skating at celand. " think the competition helps her confidence," said Ahne, of Park Ridge. "t teaches her discipline." "t's a giant commitment," said Forbes, about the large time commitment and monetary commitment that families make in order for their kids to be ice skaters. Forbes said that the skatr ers get their programs in the summer and perform the same program at various competitions throughout the year. Many skaters spend three to six days a week on the ice, for several days a week, working on their programs, she said. "lt takes a long time to perfect their programs," said Forbes, who said each program is about one to three minutes long. For each event, the first through third place winners took home trophies and those who placed fourth through sixth place received medals. Forbes said that almost every month skaters from celand participate in a competition that is hosted at various area skating rinks.

BY TRACY GRUEN Contributor ncreasing recycling and decreasing driving are two recommendations in the draft of the Nues Environmental Action Plan that were presented during a public hearing on Feb. 12. The plan was created in partnership with Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) through its Local Technical Assistance program. Kristin lhnchak, of CMAP, discussed some of the recommendations to make the village more sustainable in terms of land use and development, transportation and mobility, open space, waste, water, energy, greenhouse gases and education. lhnchak said that in the village of Nues the overall recycling rate is 19.5 percent compared to 34 percent nationally. "lt's significantly lower here than a lot of other parts of the country," noted lhnchak. n order to help boost recycling in the village, lhnchak said that the plan recommends possibly using larger recycling bins and increasing public awareness about the importance of recycling. n public places, lhnchak said the village may want to place recycling bins next to trash cans to encourage recycling. Other recommendations in the plan include creating a village-wide bicycle and pedestrian plan, updating development regulations to allow and encourage sustainable buildings and developments, work with PACE to implement Arterial Rapid Transit routes, and adopting sustainable municipal policies, such as designing new municipal facilities in order to meet green building standards. "Usage rates by Nues residents are pretty low," said lhnchak, about Niles residents who ride the PACE bus system. After talking with residents at various meetings, lhnchak said that Nues residents would like to see more open space for people to walk around and enjoy being outdoors. Village Trustee Joe LoVerde, who is also the director of the Nues Park District, said that Niles being 'landlocked" is a challenge. "Sometimes it's frustrating when you see that acreage sitting there and you can't use it for anything," said Loverde, about Cook County Forest Preserve land. lhnchak said that they would like to see the village provide better access to the forest preserves, which will at least increase the perception of having more open space in town. The Environmental Action Plan will likely go in front of the NUes village board for adoption at the Feb. 26 village board meeting.

7 NL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 Community pioneerlocal.com Milwaukee face lift nears finish BY GOR STUDENKOV Contributor The stretch of Milwaukee Avenue between Oakton and Monroe streets has plenty to offer. Dotted with stores, medical offices, law firms and fast food eateries, it tends to get decent customer traffic even on slow days. Banners and new light poles were added a few years ago, but there haven't been many other improvements. But that will change, as the Village of Niles embarks on the final leg of its the Milwaukee Avenue mprovement Project, which aims to clean up the road between Albion and Monroe streets. Construction has been ongoing since 2009, with different phases completed as funding became available. The village is currently in the midst of phase three, which covers the stretch between Neya and Oakton streets. Niles secured the funding for phase four earlier this month. Once the construction is finished, the final leg of the project will be complete. Like all the previous phases, phase four is largely funded through an llinois Transportation Enhancement Program grant. The grant is worth $747,840, which covers 80 percent of the phase's costs. Niles government will cover the remaining 20 percent. According to Charles Ostman, Nues Director of Community Development, the design for phase four hasn't been finalized. But when the village applied for the grants, the proposai included brick payers, decorative benches, planters and decorative fencing. The reaction from the businesses in question has been mixed. Zoren Lalich, owner of the Lauch Deli, feels that the improvements are long overdue. "We see other parts of Niles get improvements, but we haven't seen a whole lot of that here," he said. "[Area] businesses are getting left behind." While Lauch feels that his business in particular gets decent traffic, he believes that beautification could benefit the corridor as a whole. "lt's all about eye candy," he said. "f you improve roads and sidewalks, people will want to spend more time here." Dominic Celli, owner of Celli's Beef, couldn't disagree more. " think this is the biggest waste of time and money," he said. "The construction projects [along Milwaukee Avenue] resulted in lane closures, more traffic and major intersections, which hurt local businesses." Celli said that earlier phases had negative effect on his business, and he wasn't look- ng forward to more of the same. " lost business because people couldn't get in and out of my parking lot because of back-ups," said Celli. "Some people who would come here during lunch break are choos- ng not to come because they don't know if they'll have enough time to get in, get lunch and get back to work."

8 8 THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 NL ricommunity pioneerlocal.com Cities splits from village BY TRACY GRUEN Contributor The Nues Sister Cities Association has officially seceded from the Village of Nues and it will remain a 501 C-3 private corporation. "The village was runfling it," said Sister Cities President George Alpogiafis. "t was being run as a commission." " don't think it was being run properly," said Alpogianis, who described it as a "vacation club" for some village officials. Since it has been separated from the Village of Nues, the corporation would have to petition the village board if they wanted support for an event, such as the annual Taste of Sister Cities. Village Attorney Joseph Annunzio said that the Sister Cities has been putting on the event without the village's assistance. Now that the association has separated from the village, Alpogianis said that Commander Dennis McEnerney has stepped down from the Sister Cities board, because he is a police officer for the Village of Niles. Annunzio has also stepped down from serving on the Sister Cities Board. "We're sort of asking them to hold tight until we look at the bylaws and see what changes we need to make," said Alpogianis. The goal is to get other people from the community to be more involved in the association, including someone from Culver Dist. 71, the Niles Chamber of Commerce and the Niles Public Library. "We're not sure uf we're going to expand on the board or create an advisory board," said Alpogianis. The newly appointed board of directors consists of Alpogianis as president, Dave Laske as first vice president, Julie Genualdi as second vice president, Elizabeth "Cooky" Kraus as secretary and Yee Kim as treasurer. " think someone from the board or the mayor should be someone that sits on the board of advisors," said Alpogianis. Alpogianis said that one of their major ideas is to add a sister city in Korean and Germany. "They are two very large populations don't feel are represented in our village," said Alpogianis. Alpogianis said another idea is tocreate a German style Christmas market and invite people of all ethnicities to participate. He said they would also offer holiday storytelling. "We've got a lot of great ideas," said Alpogianis. Alpogianis said they are trying to get people from all parts of the town involved in the Sister Cities Association. "We're trying to expand it out to our community," said Alpogianis. The newly organized Sister Cities Association will meet at 6 p.m. at the Niles Public Library on the fourth Monday of each month.

9 NL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 Community pioneerlocal.com u N PROFLE Storyteller spins tales for all ages BYT RACY GRUEN Contributor - - Storytelling has always been an important part of Debi Gajewski's life, so becoming a professional storyteller who touches the lives of many people was a natural fit. The longtime Niles resident tells stories about a variety of topics at senior centers, the Niles Teen Center, and many other places. Gajewski, who owns The Story Spinners with her husband, shares interesting stories ranging from ghost stories, to Civil War stories, to preschool stories, to tales of Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Gajewski also helps others become better storytellers through coaching. Q: How did you become interested n storytelling? A: loved stories when was a child. was raised by my grandparents. t was something that we did in my era after supper. We'd go out in the front porch and that was my entertainment. They would tell me stories. really got interested. Q: Was there someone who inspired you to be a storyteller? A: My grandparents really did. 'm writing a book called "Stories on My Grandparents' Porch." t takes me back to when was a child in the '50s and the '60s. Q: What's the most rewarding part about storytelling? A: The way that it touches people. t touches their hearts and minds, their emotions. can see it when they laugh, when they smile and when tears come rolling down their face, especially with the elderly and those with Alzheimer's. know that for those moments, it touched them. like to uncover the things that are sort of swept underneath the carpet. just did a story for Martin Luther King Day. wanted a story about how we would feel if this happened to us. Q: How do you tell a story successfully? Debi Gajewski tells a story. CONTRBUTED PHOTO A: Sometimes use puppets when do younger children. At least 80 percent of the time have costumes. - have a vintage handkerchief program and show up with at least 100 handkerchiefs. Sometimes sing. have comical routines that are more for adults. Laughter is good medicine. lt really depends on what people want to do. Q: What are some of your favorite kind of stories to tell? A: really enjoy anything that makes a person want to know more. History tends to come up a lot when get hired for schools. like to find the things that no one has ever heard of. Chicago history is a favorite of mine. Q: What other hobbies or interests do you have? A: blog every day. Right now 'm doing a worldly word a day. At the end of the each month 'm going to take the words use throughout the month and write a story. paint for a living as well. paint and sell at The Grove (in Debi Gajewski tells a story. CONTRBUTED PHOTO Glenview) at Christmas time. 'm a resident story teller at The Grove. Q: Any other thoughts about storytelling? A: We need to connect with children on another level. The families aren't communicating and sharing stories and think we need to bring that back. The biggest hill we have to climb over is that we have a hard time convincing the public that storytelling is an oral tradition and not a reading from a book. U

Sponsored by Oakton's Women's and Gender Studies Program, the "One Billion Rising" protests were held both at the Skokie and Des Plaines Campuses, 45-minute demonstrations empowering women and men to stand up against global violence against women. Similar events occurred throughout the region, the country, even the world, and Oakton wanted in. n fact, said Oakton student Abigail Thomas, who helped with choreography for a universal dance that was part of every protest, 200 countries participated in the One Billion Rising demonstrations. Thomas, 19, helped lead three sessions in preparation for the dance. She had much enthusiasm when she heard about the project - in part because she has worked a suicide hotline before and understands the rampant violence against women worldwide. "The subject is very personal and dear to me," said the freshman who wants to be a child psychologist. That Thomas started dancing at age 2 also made her an ideal choice to help participants get ready for the empowering dance. "We are inviting one billion women and those who love them to walk out, dance, rise up, and demand an end to this violence," states the One Billion Rising website. "One Billion Rising will move the earth, activating women and men across every
11 Community pioneerlocal.com Time is NL THURSDAY,FEBRUARY Family Oakton Community College Women's and Gender Studies teacher Angela Kooz participates n One Billion Rising last week on the Skokie campus. The national campaign is meant to raise awareness about violence against women. JOEL LERNER-Sun-Times Media "e, A.- country. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders. 'What does one billion look like? On 14 February 2013, it will look like a revolution." The organizers said the demonstrations were intended as a global strike, an invitation to dance, and a cali to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends. The numbers are staggering and sobering. One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime, according to the United Nations Development Fund for Wornen. One billion women have been violated. "Women do not have to be victimized," said Kathleen Carot, chairwoman of Oakton's Women's and Gender Studies Program. All of us can make change happen - both men and women. This is about standing up and letting our voices be heard." Mostly women but also a few men participated in the dance in the lobby of Oakton's Skokie campus. They followed the dance steps that were displayed on a TV screen that took them through the 15-minute number. The lyrics were all about empowerment and not accepting the status quo that has led to suffering and tragedy throughout the world. " raise my arms to the sky. On my knees pray. 'm not afraid anymore. will walk through that door." Rose Novil, professor of Library Services at Oakton, danced right beside Carot and other staff and students, moving her feet, thrusting her arms into the air. ' wanted to be part of this," she said. 'lt's one of the beautiful parts of Oakton. People come together and can stand up and speak out for what is right." Myles Glasgow of Skokie, a parent who came to support the cause, said that too many men "grow up very afraid" and cope with life through violence. This was the inaugural One Billion Rising event.

15 NL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, Community pioneerlocal.com Open wide: College launches new dental clinic [imkesaacs corn SKOKE For Sanford-Brown College's dental hygiene students and for the cornmunity they're soon to serve, Feb. 12 was a day about which to smile. The schools new dental hygiene clinic is all about smil- ng - making smiles brighter and whiter, regardless of the patient's ability to pay. "Win-win" is an overused cliche to be sure, but it's hard to describe this week's open- ng of the new dental hygiene clinic in any other way; students will receive hands-on experience in a state-of-theart clinic, and the community will gain an option for free dental care. Sanford-Brown educators said the creation of a dental hygiene clinic was always to be part of the program. "With the growing need for preventative oral care and the flexibility a career in dental hygiene may provide, the dental hygiene program is an incredible opportunity to pursue a career in the dental field," Dr. Shirley Beaver said about a year ago, when the new program was first announced. "Our goal is to build a foundation that will help students pursue opportunities with the knowledge and clinical experience they need to succeed." Beaver last week said that when she was hired to lead the program, it was always Sanford-Brown College Clinical nstructor Katherine Barnum (right) of Arlington Heights works with student Marcia Meadors of Chicago in the new Dental Hygiene Clinic, which opened this week. BUZZ ORR-Sun-Times Media under the concept of creating a dental hygiene clinic so students could offer care to the community. That concept became rea - ity at last week's grand opening when the new dental hygiene clinic was shown off for the first time. The clinic includes 15 stations allowing more than half of the class to work on patients at once. Educators said there is about $1 million in equipment at the new dental hygiene clinic, a benefit to both the students and the patients they'll see. All of those students were on hand last week to celebrate the clinic, which they have been looking forward to since the start of their academic training. "We've been working so hard to get to this point," said Angie Abdin, president of Sanford-Brown College's dental hygiene class of "There is no way we could get this kind of learning if we didn't have the Clinic." "The hands-on experience is so important," echoed student Liz Raya, of Chicago. Student Blanca Kacouris, of Chicago, also appreciated the opportunity the students now all have. "Without this kind of practice, we couldn't be prepared to work in dental offices," she said. That may be why nearly 30 students, all wearing their purple dental hygiene SANFORD- BROWN DENTAL HYGENE CLNC Where: Sanford-Brown College, 4930 Oakton St. When: Grand opening: last week. The clinic was scheduled to open for business Feb. 18. Services: Assessments, patient education, radiographs, cleanings, sealants and fluoride treatments. nformation: For information and appointments, call (847) uniforms last week, could be seen smiling throughout the celebration. Their excitement was palpable as they listened to speakers and walked through the new clinic. "You students are going to see these people in the community and make a difference in their lives," said Skokie dentist Susan Becker Doroshow, secretary of the Chicago Dental Society. Doroshow made one of the most impassioned speeches of the day when she told students that their career is about so much more than fixing teeth. These students will help people in ways that they probably don't even realize, she said. "You won't see the hole in their heart that you fixed," she told students before ca ling the clinic "a place where magic can happen." That may sound a little hyperbolic, unless you know the need that exists in the community. n 2012, for example, the Skokie Review visited Jane Stenson School, where more than 50 percent of the student enrollment is classified as low-income. A team of dentists under the llinois Mobile Dentists program came to Stenson that day to provide dental screenings for those who could not afford them. They were busy from morning until afternoon. The free checkups included cleanings, fluoride and sealants to prevent cavities - services that the Sanford-Brown clinic will now be able to provide. At the clinic's opening, Dr. David Miller of the llinois Department of Public Health told dental students it was up to them to make a difference in the community and in the state. Chicago Dental Hygienists' Society President Kasia Jiminez said the Clinic will "open many doors of opportunity for students and the community." Also on hand to congratulate the students and school was Dr. Darryl Pendleton, associate dean for student and diversity affairs with the University of llinois Chicago College of Dentistry. But for all the words spoken on this happy day of celebration, it was really a day about smiles - the smiles on the faces of the students and the smiles that these students will soon help create in the community. Skokie Mayor George Van Dusen emphasized that same point. "t's really about the smiles on the faces of the young people," he declared before cutting the ribbon, signaling that the Sanford-Brown Dental Hygiene Clinic in downtown Skokie is now open for business.

21 NL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, Chicago, Springfield, Washington csw pioneerlocal.com What it means to you TAX DOLLARS AT WORK CHCAGO SPRNGFELD WASHNGTON O'Hare to get $30-an-hour hotel suites for weary travelers Air travelers will soon have a place to rest their weary heads between flights at O'Hare Airport - and it won't be those infamous cots opened in passenger terminals during snowstorms. With assurances that O'Hare will not become a 'no-tell motel," the City Council agreed last week to allow second-floor space in the rotunda between Terminals 2 and 3 to be turned into 29 extended-stay suites" for weary air travelers. Minute Suites plans to offer suites for $30-anhour or $120 overnight for travelers in by 11 p.m. and out by 7 am. The 62-square-foot suites will include a daybed sofa, workstation, high-definition TV and personal computer with nternet access. Aldermen signed off on the agreement, one of 10 new concessions at a dozen locations at O'Hare domestic terminals expected to collectively generate at least $5.6 million in annual revenues for the city. But not before Aviation Commissioner Rosemarie Andolino put to rest their concerns about creating a staging round for terrorists and about hourly rentals that could turn Minute Suites into a haven for sexual trysts. - Chicago Sun-Times lfinois Senate OKs doctors' license fee hike to retire debt The llinois Senate approved a measure last week to raise physicians' licensing fees to $700 to help the state rehire workers who license and investigate doctors. The Senate voted on the bill in an attempt to retire a deficit in the medical unit of the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation by temporarily raising a three-year doctor's license to $700. The unit's budget woes forced more than half of the department's medical watchdog staff to be laid off last month. llinois officials and doctors have been at odds for months over how to adequately and fairly fund the unit. While both sides acknowledge that physicians' license fees should increase, they cannot agree on how much. They also disagree on whether the department should take a short-term loan to rehire the 18 staffers who were let go Jan. 15. The Senate proposal, sponsored by Senate President John Cullerton, now moves to the House for consideration. Separate legislation awaiting House action mimics the Senate measure in borrowing $6.6 million from a tax fund for rehiring staff. But the House version, sponsored by Speaker Michael Madigan, permanently raises the fee to $ The Associated Press House votes to extend pay freeze for federal workers The House voted Friday to extend a pay freeze for federal workers, already in effect for more than two years, for another nine months. Republicans, who largely backed the measure, said it would save $11 billion in the long run and that economically secure public servants could go a little longer without a raise. Most Democrats, and the White House, criticized the bill as an example of anti-government bias and said Republicans, instead of debating a bill that has little chance of advancing in the Democratic-controlled Senate, should be concentrating on avoiding the pending automatic cuts to federal programs that could have a painfut effect on the economy. The House measure, approved on a vote, blocks an executive order issued by President Barack Obama last December that would give the nation's 2 million civilian federal workers a 0.5 percent cost-of-living raise from March 27, when the current federal spending agreement expires, through the end of the year. The White House has indicated it will also indude a 1 percent federal pay increase in its 2014 budget proposal. - The Associated Press
22 22 THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 NL Opinion VEWPONT Pioneer Press 1,000 WORDS Jack Higgins Preschool works Study after study shows that kids who go to high-quality preschool do much better in the long run. For at-risk children, there is no better social investment we can make. Kids who complete a good preschool program graduate high school in greater numbers, earn more as young adults and are less likely to go to jail. President Obama wants to use federal money to reach all low- and moderate-income 4-yearolds and to create a partnership with states, which largely oversee government preschool programs, to encourage them to reach all 4-year-olds. Conservatives already are dismissing this as another government attempt to throw money at programs that don't work. They are right to raise concerns about the uneven quality of preschool programs. Just three in 10 4-year-olds are in what's considered a good program, based on a review by the National Center for Education Statistics. But this is a chance to make preschool better and more accessible so that every 4-year-old child can go to a quality program, not just a lucky few. 2o5 'd 14Oc(E:Ys AC1C JT VJE'RE STELL :&,ALS, 1iTh' AS1TS AÑ LOST Football dangers deserve a closer look f you care about the future of high school football and the safety of student athletes who play the game, plan to attend a forum Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Vernon Hills High School auditorium. The forum is organized by State Rep. Carol Sente, who has sponsored legislation in Springfield for schools to limit football tackling practice to just one day a week. The legislation is aimed at addressing the growing concern about the safety of football, specifically the long-term damage that can be caused to the brain by repeated blows to the head over time. People will question the merits of the legislation on all sorts of grounds. How can schools monitor every practice? How can you teach football without teaching tackling? What about blocking? There are head blows in blocking, too. Sente deserves kudos for raising the issue. The real question is about the future of high school football. n light of the lawsuit filed by a growing number of former pro players - up to 4,000 now - against the NFL, how can any entity which serves young athletes sanction football? What high school or college would RMD BLA Y SER also want to be liable for potential brain damage to thousands of former high school and college players? Will there come a time when high schools can't get insurance for the football team? Sentes legislation, which is now in committee in the General Assembly, might be considered the first death knell, or the first salvo, depending on your point of view, about the high school game. Football is going to change. The question is whether youth football can survive. Commentator Bob Costas, on the TV program "Meet the Press" on Super Bowl Sunday, said: "The way football is currently played in the NFL is fundamentally unsustainable." President Obama weighed in, too, saying that if he had a son he'd think twice about letting him play football. Now we have Sentes proposal. But if football is so dangerous to young people that it has to be limited, why stop there? Should schools allow it at all? Logically, that's the next question, because research shows that it is the repeated blows to the head over time, not necessarily concussions, that are causing problems. f schools ban soda and candy from vending machines because students might become overweight, repeated blows to the head looks like the greater danger to the health and safety of students. That's the underlying issue every school is going to confront sooner or later. The debate starts Feb. 25.
23 My car needed an oil change, so took it in. always get the oil changed promptly. had a PA car once didn't and, well, that's a story only Edgar Allan Poe could write. So, take my car in regularly now. But with some trepidation. Because don't want to spend any more than for an oil change, which means have to get by the car-repair adviser. lt is obvious need my car in working order. f t isn't can't get where want to go, or could wind up taking a horizontal tour of a hospital emergency room. Like so many people have no idea how a car works. f you told me it was all gerbils on a treadmill 'd probably believe it. So, sit on the edge of a plastic chair in the waiting area and watch the ladies of "The View" as the car-repair adviser critically and somewhat disdainfully examines my car while the oil is being changed. He returns. "Sir, notice one of your windshield wipers sticks." Yes? Can you change it? 'We could. But the manual says that a stuck windshield wiper is a sign that you need new brakes, a new transmission, four new tires and a paint job." SASSUL ONE Opinion pioneerlocal.com Car-repair fear is the wheel deal ;Nì< es Herald-Spectator Wants to Hear from You Can put that off for a while? "You could. But it's possible the steering wheel can snap back and impale you as the seats burst into flame." Heavens. How much would t be to fix that? Since don't want to be skewered while bursting into flame sign off on the repairs. The garage makes a tidy profit and Madison (the car-repair adviser's daughter) gets a college education. That's what 'm afraid will happen as sit, poised on the edge of the chair in the waiting room as Barbara Walters goes on about the most interesting people of the year, none of whom am. see the adviser through the glass, hands on hips staring down at my car, much as a vascular surgeon might look at a heart-transplant patient. He writes something on a clipboard and strides back into the waiting area. 'Mr. Sansoon?" Yes. "You're OK, but it's just about time to have your fuel injectors cleaned." think 'll wait on that. Maybe next time. Oh, baby! 'm out with just an oil change. Oh, and a new air filter. Oh, had them rotate the tires, too. Oh, and had to have that windshield wiper repaired, of course.

25 NL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, o School ucation in Focus Maine high schools to require laptops JENNFER JOHNSON PARK RDGE The way Maine Township high school students read their textbooks is about to change. Beginning next school year, incoming freshmen and sophomores will be required to purchase a Chromebook laptop computer during summer book sales. lt's a new initiative from the District 207 Board of Education, which recently approved the $1.07 million purchase of over 3,000 Chromebooks for the first year of a three-year roll-out. The district will be reimbursed when families pay for the computers through their technology fee. The cost per Chromebook, which includes cords and a protective cover, is currently estimated at $319, said Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum Barb Dill-Varga. "lt's a device that will allow students to access digital resources, in some cases replacing their print textbook," Dill-Varga said. The computers will belong to the students once they purchase them and will be used to download digital books, access nternet resources, share documents through Google, turn in East High School science teacher Aida Awad, center, instructs students who are using Chromebooks, a type of laptop computer, as part of a pilot program this year. CONTRBUTED PHOTO Maine assignments and take exams, Dill-Varga explained. One of the benefits of the computers is that families could likely see savings, as digital textbooks cost relatively less than printed textbooks, she added. During January a meeting of the District 207 Education Committee, Dill-Varga explained that digital books can cost as little as $20, while printed textbooks can range from $90 to $120 for Maine students. "lt's the right time for us to start to shift away from the high cost of printed textbooks," Dill-Varga said. The district is floating the option of letting families pay for the computers in four installments over the first year. They also have an existing program in place to help families who cannot afford the cost of the computers, Dill-Varga explained. Chromebooks run on the Google Chrome operating system and are among the least expensive laptops. The Chromebooks purchased for District 207 students have safeguards in place that are intended to keep students from visiting nternet sites they should not be looking at during class, particularly when they are taking exams, Dill-Vargasaid. Teachers will also have the ability to view the computer screens of every student, she added. Maine East High School science teacher Aida Awad has been piloting Chromebooks in her geology class this school year. "lt's surprising, but they really do love them," she said of her students. Awad explained that some of the advantages of using this particular type of laptop include the speed, eight-hour battery life and ability to resume a project in seconds after closing the computer. "That's a really big advantage, that you can seamlessly move from using the device to doing something else," Awad said. She also uses the Chromebooks to incorporate online video into her instruction and to have students store reports and research papers in a Google Document file that Awad can access and offer feedback on. "They have dramatically changed how teach and how a lot of other teachers teach," she explained. "We have really moved much more toward student-centered learning." But students are not be the only ones who will need to adjust to their new virtual classroom. Teachers will also require lessons in working with Chromebooks. "There are a lot of details to work out, not the least of which is professional development for teachers," Dill- Varga said. "nstructively, it will be an important change that the teachers will have to think about."

The mission of the DDF is to prevent deaths caused by seizures. Tom Stanton, Danny's uncle, recently spoke to students at Niles North. He said, 'lt was great to spend time with students at Niles North High School to talk about Danny's story, epilepsy and seizure safety. These leaders are members of the WHO Club - short for We Help others. They focus on service projects that help Danny Did and so many 0ther groups.

"Golf Mill is a very good location for that kind of business," said Chen, who said there's a lot of traffic in the mall and on Milwaukee Avenue. "We've been doing very good business," said Chen, about the restaurant's first couple of weeks in operation. Although the 10,000 square-food restaurant sports a contemporary look, Chen describes Ginza Buffet as a casual dining atmosphere. "A lot offamilies come to eat here," said Chen.

33 When you call Krex Computers, you might be greeted by a recording that talks about the store's custom-built computer systems that include either a 5.25 or 3.5-inch floppy drive. While owner Al-Amin Lakhani admits the message is probably due for changing, he s proud of the fact that customers can indeed still find a variety of floppy drives at the Morton Grove store, something some of them need to access old data they've never transferred to a newer format. "We still have floppy drives. People still have data on floppy drives," Lakhani said. Lakhani got out of school in the 1980s, with a degree in computer science and he says more book knowledge than practical knowledge. "J went to work for a company and started really teaming," he said. n about 1990 he decided to go out on his own, and opened Computer Brain nc. in Skokie. He still owns that store, now in its second location since moving to Lincolnwood. Being in the same business, he knew Steve Krex and about four years ago leaned that Krex wanted to move on. "We started our businesses about the same time. We knew each other and when heard he wanted to sell out made him an offer," Lakhani said. Krex accepted, and Lakhani took over Krex Computers in Though many of the independent computer stores that sprouted up with the advent of personal computers long ago were driven out of business by big box stores and large computer retailers like Dell, Lakhani said his ability to provide personal service has allowed him to keep going. Lakhani and his staff at Krex build new systems for customers at the Morton Grove store. That enables them to customize a computer based on the customer's needs. n some cases, that may mean a more basic system for someone interested in simple tasks like word processing and , or a more powerful system with a fast, multi-core processor, snappy video card and lots of memory for a system designed for gaming. "All of our systems are custom-made," Lakhani said. "We try to find out what they want to do and then we make a recommendation. "We customize it to their needs. That's what we Business pioneerlocal.com Personal service computes for local shop BYLNE FORMAT t Morton Grove- Krex Computers, is one of a few remaining independent computer stores, t has been in business since Owner Al Lakhani. JOE CYGANOWSK-For Sun-Times Media specialize in," Lakhani said. "We use quality parts to build a system that suits their needs." The use of standardized components, from hard drives to optical drives and memory modules, makes it easier and often cheaper to replace a part that has failed or to upgrade a system. The cornponents, even something like the motherboard, are easily replaceable with parts purchased at Krex or any other supplier. That's different than many prebuilt, namebrand systems that often use expensive parts that can only be purchased from the computer's manufacturer. "You're held hostage. You have to buy their proprietary components," Lakhani said. A big part of his business, Lakhani said, is service. n addition to servicing Krex systems, the shop can repair pretty much anything, including replacing broken screens or defective circuit boards in notebook computers. The store also does a considerable amount of virus removal for customers whose systems become infected. Maintenance and repairs can be done onsite or at the store. As for himself, Lakhani has one word for what he enjoys about computers. "Speed, speed and speed," he said.

That is until now. Meet Meg Barnhart, founder of The Zen of Slow Cooking (wwwthezenofs- owcooking.com). Barnhart, along with culinary expert Jane McKay, is transform- ng the way we think about dinner by creating a website dedicated to producing more Zen and less stress in your daily life, especially around the dinner hour. bown WTH A SLOW COÖKER "lt's hard to believe, but it was only six years ago that dinnertime was my biggest worry," Barnhart said. "My husband was constantly traveling arid my three kids were going in three different directions. Afternoons were dedicated to Meg Barnhart (left) of Lake Forest and Jane Mckay of Chicago, who run The Zen of Slow Cooking website, demonstrate how to make Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread with Lucy Barnhart, 14, Lily McKay, 5, and sister Connie McKay, 3.

Fortunately, things soon turned around when a friend suggested Barnhart purchase a crockpot. "lt sounds silly, but using a slow cooker really changed my life," Barnhart said. " was able to restore peace and calm in my home by focusing my attention on my kids, while dinner slowly came together in a foolproof way." CHOOSNGÄSLÓw coöép Since your slow cooker will become the workhorse of your kitchen, it's important to choose one that fits your family's needs and lifestyle. Both Barnhart and McKay recommend finding a slow cooker that has a cast iron insert, which can be used to brown meat or sauté vegetables. 'Not only does the cast iron insert improve overall flavor and appearance," McKay said, "but it also saves on washing up since you don't have to use a separate pan." Other issues to consider when buying a slow cooker include durability, temperature controls and price range, so it's important to read online reviews such as those found on Amazon, Consumer Reports or Yahoo. Once you have your slow cooker, the next step is to take it out of the box and start cooking. The Zen of Slow Cooking site offers recipes, tips and inspirational Zen moments to suit the whole family. Be sure to check out their Chicken Pot Pie and Tangy Tilapia Taco recipes or try your hand at something sweet, such as their moist and delicious Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread.

37 NL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, f Purim A BY VERONCA HNKE Contributor lt wouldn't be Purim without hamantaschen, the triangleshaped pocket cookies traditionally exchanged on the Jewish holiday. 'They're such an exclusive cookie: you only get them once a year" said Skokie resident Beth Chiet. Chiet and her daughter Jenna, 10, were part of a group of volunteers who baked hamantaschen together in the kitchen at Beth Hillel Congregation Bnai Emunah in Wilmette in advance of Purim festivities. On the evening of Feb. 23, which marks the beginning of the 24-hour-long holiday, the biblical story of Purim will be read aloud from the Book of Esther at the synagogue. The story tells how Haman bribed King Ahasuerus of Persia to allow him to kill the Jews. The translation of Hamantaschen is "Haman's pockets," which references the coins Haman stuffed in his pockets to bribe King Ahasuerus. Haman was hanged, however, and his plans failed, when Esther, a favored wife of the king, revealed her Jewish ancestry. Esther's disclosure sparked a celebratory day of feasting that is still observed annually - with plenty of hamantaschen cookies. (From left) Eli Spector, Nora Aisenberg, Rebecca Aisenberg and Jenna Chiet, all of Skokie, make some hamantaschen at Temple Beth Hillel in Wilmette.

" like folding them," Jenna said. But while the process of folding three edges toward the center of each cookie can be a fun step, it can also be a tricky part of the baking process. "f you don't press the dough firmly enough, the cookie ends up looking like a big blob," Beth said. The folds point to the center of each cookie, which is filled with apricot, raspberry and other fruit jams. Other popular fillings include chocolate and poppy seed. Jenna's favorite is chocolate and her friend Rebecca Aisenberg, 10, also of Skokie, agrees. "Hamantaschen cookies come in a lot of different flavors, but like chocolate the best," Rebecca said. With their moms, the girls and their friend Eli Spector made hamantaschen at the synagogue. Some may be served after the reading on Feb. 23; others could be included in "mishloach manot," or Hamantaschen are triangle-shaped cookies typically stuffed with poppy seeds, fruit jams or chocolate that are eaten on the Jewish holiday of Purim.

"We just enjoy getting out with the kids and celebrating at the carnival," said Rebecca's mother, Nora Aisenberg. Whatever the event, the Beth Hillel Sisterhood has used the same trusted recipe for hamantaschen for more than 30 years. The recipe is one of 750 favorites shared in a cookbook the group published 14 years ago, World of Our Flavors l. ' have been baking hamantaschen for many years, since was a youngster, and later with my own children," said Wilmette resident Gail Schneiderman, who was involved in the cookbook production. "Now the next generation, our grandchildren, participate with great delight." For details about Purim festivities at Beth Hille Congregation Bnai Emunah, see org.

At the black-tie bash, nearly 8,000 guests flooded McCormick Place to get a sneak peek at the roughly 1,000 cars on display before the show opened to the public. WMAQ- Channel 5's Alicia Roman and Cheryl Scott presided over the red carpet, then joined attendees in sipping cocktails, snacking on hors d'oeuvres and perusing the impressive automobiles sprawled across the one-million-square-foot space. At the end of the night, two lucky guests took home the event's grand prizes: a Buick Encore and lyundai Santa Fe Sport. Equally epic were the fundraising efforts - more than $2 million was raised for 18 local charities.

55 FEBRUARY won Julie Smolyansky, new member of the United Nations Foundation's Global Entrepreneurs Council, spends a day in her hometown ir1meetc i BY ZAK STEMER Smolyanksy is ready to take the world by storm, and she's not wasting any time. As a member of the Global Entrepreneurs Council - the United Julie Nations Foundation's group of 10 elite young business moguls - she's tasked with brainstorming ways to use new technology to combat issues like povertç famine, illness and inequality across the world. But Smolyansky is undaunted by the huge undertaking. " want to do whatever can to help humatht" she says. " know it sounds crazy and big, but it's the U.N." Taking on big projects is how Smolyansky made a name for herself. Ten years ago, she became the youngest CEO of a publicly traded company, Lifeway Foods, after she took over for her father. Since then, she's used technology and creativity to help the company grow to an $80 million-per-year business. "We were very early on social media," she says. "When we put Lifeway on Twitter, the only other brands could see there were Whole Foods and Starbucks." t's important to Smolyansky that Lifeway, which specializes in producing kefir (a Russian mixture of grain and dairy), promotes healthier lifestyles through nutrition. "By raising awareness of probiotics, we can impact the heath of our communities and reduce healthcare costs," she says. "We want to take some very inexpensive ideas and save lives." Our nation's health isn't her only concern. 'Women's issues have always been a passion of mine," she says. n the past, she's worked with supermodel Christy Thrlington for Every Mother Counts, an organization supporting maternal health in developing countries. As part of her efforts, Smolyansky took a trip to Bangladesh, visiting nonprofit sites across the country and reaching out to local mothers. With her technological savvy business acumen and powerful passions, Smolyansky seems perfectly primed for her current position alongside big names like Barbara Bush and Warby Parker co-founder Neil Biwnenthal. Here, the mogul and global problem solver takes us through her comparatively relaxing Sunday in the city.

57 q.abio Viviani has charisma. When the celebrity chef walks into a room, he takes a moment to greet everyone - ladies with a kiss on the cheek or hand, gents with a handshake. Between his trademark smile and native talian accent, Viviani leaves almost every woman in the room a little weak-kneed in his wake, though winning hearts is hardly his intention; it's just who he is. "Since was young, 've had an enormous respect for women. They were always the pillar of our household," says Viviani. The 35-year-old chef, who shot to fame as one ofthe final four contestants on season five of "Top Chef," is set to bring his charms to Chicago on a regular basis. He's teamed up with restaurateurs David Rehkson and Lucas Stoioff of DineAmic hospitality group - the team behind Bull & Bear and Public House - for their new venture, a modern talian restaurant in River North dubbed Siena Tavern. "t's talian-inspired," says Viviani of the 230-seat spot. "There are five or six dishes that are as talian as it gets, but with [the rest of the menu] we wanted to use traditional flavors with a twist. We add that edge that you get when you come down to River North." Adds Rehkson, "t's talian, but it's still everyday and accessible. You can come here a few times a week and you don't feel like you just ate a ton of pasta and you're so full." Viviani cites the meatball, made with Kobe beef and homemade ricotta cheese, as an example of a traditional dish that has been modernized. "We make everything from scratch," he says. The trio's partnership kicked off three years ago, when Viviani was in town for work, and the hotel concierge recommended Public House for a beer. Viviani liked the spot so much he asked to meet the owners, and the three struck up a quick friendship. So when Rehkson and Stoioff started toying with the idea of an talian concept, joining forces with Viviani seemed like a natural fit. "We synergized very well," says Stoioff. "Even though he's from a different part of the world, we're all similar, and we're all friends, so that makes it fun. And when it's fun, you get better ideas and you work harder." For Viviani, it's an ideal match. "'ve been in the restaurant business for 25 years," says the chef, who started working in kitchens in taly when he was 11. "And bad management is the number one reason people fail in the restaurant industry. These guys have that down." While DineAmic is working on projects across the country, the fact that they call Chicago their home base was also a selling point for Viviani. "Chicago is the place to be right now if you want to have a good meal. Some of my favorite chefs are based here, and people like to go out - it doesn't matter how cold it is." David Rehkson (from left), Lucas Stoioff and Fabio Viviani at Siena Tavern, si w. Kinzie. The tr jr. O traveled SPrat,o. O taly house for withh. ate in Fabjos taurant 'n than any0 e etks0 O garner inspiration for Siena Tavern, the trio went to taly for a week of research, traveling around Viviani's homeland to eat, drink and take in the culture. "We got an experience that most Americans don't get, being with someone who grew up in Thscany," says Rehkson. "We ate in Fabio's house with his parents, and literally, more of our menu inspiration came from his mom than any other restaurant in taly." n fact, several dishes at Siena Tavern come straight from the Viviani family, including olive oil-poached potatoes, gnocchi and lasagna that's been passed down for 13 generations. "Some people try to reinvent the wheel, but there are some dishes that were invented 500 years ago and they're perfect the way they are," says Rehkson. t's safe to say that the trip also solidified their friendship. " love these guys to pieces, but going out with them in taly was like going out with two ballerinas," ViViani jokes. "Fabio wanted to eat gelato and ride in gondolas. We wanted to go out," Rehkson counters with a laugh. And it turns out Viviani's popularity is global. "We're walldng around Florence and every five minutes someone comes up to him," says Stoioff. "When we're here, it's twice as much. f we're walking from Bull & Bear to Siena Tavern, we have to budget extra time for the stopping." His instant recognition is hardly surprising, given that he was voted "Fan Favorite" on his season of "Top Chef." But while he's grateful for the opportunity, he's quick to note that for the contestants, reality is a far cry from what Bravo portrays. " have been very blessed with Bravo, because it exposed the passion for everything do," he says. "That said, 'Top Chef' is a brand, and they're trying to promote it with this fairy tale that we are all friends and love each other and get together. When 'm in town, text Stephanie [zard, of Girl & the Goat] because think she's awesome and love her food, and Dale [Levitski of Frog n Snail] too. But do ever see them? Nol t was a good experience, but you have to go back to work after the show. have friendships with people - 'm friends with Richard Blais and Mike sabella is a great guy - but do we hang out like Bravo would like you to believe? Never." ot that Viviani would have the time, anyway. Between running his two restaurants in the L.A. area, Firenze Osteria and Cafe Firenze, and pursuing new ventures with the DineAmic group, he films the Webby Award-winning Yahoo series called "Chow Ciao," which gets over a million views a week. He also runs a website called Kids Health Cafe (Ctdshealthcafe.corn), a one-stop shop for parents to find nutrition information and meal ideas for the family. Though he's based in California, Viviani expects he'll be in Chicago one or two weeks each month. "You can't expect to see me 24/7, but you'll see me enough to understand this is me, it's not slapping a name on a building," he says. "f the restaurant doesn't perform well, it's my face on it. How much do you think want to be here to make it successful?" (When he's away, Bull & Bear and Public House chef David Blonsky will oversee the kitchen.) At the heart of everything Viviani does is his goal to make people happy. " try to treat people the way 'd like to be treated from somebody who has had the luck and notoriety," he says. "Eat a little of my food, 'll give you a hug and kiss, show you directions, if can make you happy, great. Whatever can do. 'm not pretentious. 'm not a celebrity by any means. just had the luck to showcase my craft on TV and be myselí which is the most important thing." BACKGROUNC The Florence-born chef starting working in restaurants when he was 11, attended culinary school when he was 13 and was the sous chef at Florence restaurant l Pallaio by the time he was 16. n his twenties, he worked in kitchens around Europe and at one point, he owned six restaurants, two clubs and a bed and breakfast in Tuscany. He sold t all to pursue his career in the United States. rv STAR; Viviani appeared on "Top Chef: New York," the fifth season of the hit culinary television competition. He was one of the last four standing, just missing out on a trip to the finals. Thanks to his gregarious personality, he was voted "Fan Favorite," and went on to appear in "Top Chef: All Stars" (above) and "Life After Top Chef." THE )O n 2007, Viviani opened Cafe Firenze in Moorpark, Calif. He followed that up in 2009 with Firenze Osteria, a traditional talian restaurant in North Hollywood. This April, he'll release a new cookbook, Fabio's talian Kitchen. Viviani is divorced and reportedly dating a Chicagoan. MANTRA: He walks around with a quote in his wallet.

Here's the secret to South Beach success: Avoid "hip" hotels that mask their subpar service under a veneer of faux grooviness. The King & Grove Tides gets my stamp of approval. Built in 1936, the airy beachfront suites and beautiful public spaces emanate relaxed elegance and an authentic art deco vibe - and the complimentary beach lounge chairs and umbrellas are a game-changer.

Located on Ocean Drive, it's got a sprawling rooftop with views of the ocean, a full-service spa and a fabulous onsite restaurant, BLT Steak. You can't beat starting the day on the beach, but for me, tranquility demands a spa visit. The awardwinning Mandarin Oriental Spa takes rejuvenation to another dimension. The attentive staff performs all services inside gleaming white and bamboo suites with sweeping views of Biscayne Bay. When it comes to dinner, getting all dolled up is a prerequisite. Pull on something sexy and head out to one of the many of-themoment hot spots. Best bets? Juvia, l Gabiano, Prime 112, Zuma and Villa Azur.

Williams popped the question on Christmas Eve, and Sambolin confirmed the news to fans by posting a photo of her ring on Facebook. Congrats to design diva Alison Victoria (right) of the DV network's "Kitchen Crashers." She'll make multiple appearances on the Travel Channel's 'Hotel mpossible" over the next two months. The Chicago native will also participate in PAWS Chicago's "Animal Magnetism" event Feb. 22. BY KATERNA BZOS Jt took Alana Grelyak a few months to take Michael Gabriele's invite for coffee seriously. Though they first hit it off at a party he threw in November 2009, their five-year age difference made her hesitant to go out with him - so he used Facebook to stay in touch until she had a change of heart. They dated for three years before getting married last fall at the St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral, where Grelyak's parents and grandparents were both married. Selecting the music for the ceremony was particularly meaningful for the couple - Gabriele is a director and producer at DDB Chicago, and Grelyak an associate composer at Sonixphere - so when a Ukrainian quartet sang Grelyak down the aisle, "everyone was crying," she says. The reception took place at the Adler Planetarium, a spot the couple felt would accurately represent Chicago's culture to Gabriele's talian family. After cocktail hour in the colorfully lit Clark Family Welcome Gallery, the party moved into the main hail, where the duo had their first dance. n Southern talian tradition, Gabriele's family wrapped the two in colorful streamers and showered them in confetti, setting a celebratory tone for the rest of the evening. Just before midnight, the DJ announced the newlyweds' departure, and the crowd waved farewell. The evening concluded on an even sweeter note - guests snacked on talian treats that Gabriele's mother, grandmother and uncle had spent weeks baking.

63 . sunday dinner home andawa Take a vacation without leaving the city at La Sirena Clandestina From Latin America With Love Chicago is home to a boatload of great Latin American restaurants - everything from Brazilian to Cuban to Peruvian. And thanks to the fine gatos at GrubHub, you can have your meal delivered from any of these unanimous standouts. On the menu: moqueca, a seafood stew. nset: shortbread caramel cookies FiN BY JOURDAN FARCHLD Cough up some major cash and you can lounge on a Brazilian beach, feasting on fresh lobster tail and sipping caipirinhas. Or, do your wallet a favor and get the same flavor - for a fraction of the cost - at La Sirena Clandestina, a 40-seat hot spot that opened last fall. Thcked into a corner of Fulton Market, this unassuming eatery seems more fit in a small fishing town than a big Midwestern city. But that's exactly what chef John Manion intended. " wanted it to feel different from the big restaurants you typically find in Chicago," says Manion, formerly John Ma Executi of Branch 27, Mas and Goose sland. His inspiration? A quaint Brazilian city called Buzios that Brigitte Bardot famously visited in the '60s. From the restaurant's name, which translates to "hidden mermaid," down to its roughhewn wooden floors, ambient lighting and sexy soundtrack (compiled by Poi Dog Pondering's Frank Orrall), Manion and his team aimed to create a similarly authentic, intimate setting. But the star import, of course, is the food. The menu draws on dishes that Manion first tasted while living in Brazil as a child, such as moqueca ($20), a tomato-based seafood stew over risotto, and pao de queijo ($6), a popular cheese bread sold on the streets. Thily adventurous diners might go for the grilled chicken hearts ($8), "but that's on the menu - and will never be taken off - for Brazilians who can't even get them in Brazilian steakhouses," he says. More familiar options, like grilled tn-tip ($18) and lobster tail ($28), are prepared in no-fuss fashion with chimichurri and misomalagueta butter. "A friend told me that this is the kind of food that you want to get on ve chef a vacation, but you can never nion actually get," says Manion. Similarly escapist are Justin Anderson's dynamic drinks. Playing with South American spirits such as pisco, tequila and cachaça, Anderson manages to be experimental yet unpretentious (try his Papi Chulo, a customer favorite, for proof). "The biggest compliment get about this place is when people say, 'Wow, feel like 'm somewhere else,' "Manion says.

64 ... Classic bungalows are a Chicago staple - and an affordable housing option BY LSA SKOLNK asic beauties you're looking for a home with comfort, quality construction and decent square footage - minus the high price tag - consider a classic bungalow. Combining thoughtful Jfdesign, sound construction and affordabili the American version of this home flourished in the early 20th century, and remains a great value today - especially in Chicago. Our city is a bungalow bastion thanks to former Mayor Richard M. Daley, who lionized the dwelling in 2000 with his Historic Chicago Bungalow nitiative, which is still in place to help spur sensitive restorations of the structures. n Chicago, the iconic bungalow is a compact brick structure that's one-and-a-half stories high and 20 feet wide, and situated on a standard city lot (25' x 125'). Despite the rigid standards, options abound in a broad price range. At the top of the rung is 2857 W. Wilson, a handsome four-bedroom, three-bathroom 1919 model in Ravenswood Manor with a detached two-car garage for $669,000. With artful, multipaned leaded glass windows, an elegant tiled roof and expansive interior with Craftsman detailing, it's a defmitive example of Chicago's fmest. "t's also in pristine shape and set on an oversized corner lot. So it's extremely sunny and has a gorgeous yard that's larger than what you usually get with a Chicago bungalow," says Baird & Warner broker Mary Jaeger (call ). Set on a corner lot, this Ravenswood Manor home (2857 W Wilson) gets more sunlight than your average bungalow. Other options Well-priced bungalows are available across the city. On the far South Side in Beverly, at S. Hale, a 1,800-squarefoot, four-bed, two-bath 1925 classic on an oversized lot comes in at $145,000 (call Dream Town broker Tng Sutana, ). Nearby, at 9947 S. Damen, a grander option is a 3,200-squarefoot, five-bed, 2.5-bath built in 1919 with an oversized lot and intact architectural details for $435,000 (call Prudential broker Nancy Hotchkiss ). On the Northwest Side, there's 5639 W. Patterson, a recently updated three-bed two-bath with a two-car garage for $269,500 (call Century 21 broker Nancy Duklc, ). Far north in Rogers Park, a 1,866-square-foot, four-bed 2.5-bath at 2937 W. Greenleaf - with impeccably preserved Craftsman detailing - can be purchased for $419,900 (call Century 21 broker Phyllis Smith, ) S.

65 la la liz DSPATCHES FROM OUR CHCAGOAN N HOLLYWOOD, LZ CROKP4 Mixed reactions to Rihanna and Chris Brown's reunion and Chris Biiwn are making it Rthanna no secret that they're back together and totally in love. The couple were spotted together all over Hollywood during Graminy weekend, hitting exclusive parties - and they didn't refrain from the PDA. This may be a hard pill to swallow for some people, considering the fact that he physically assaulted her on the night of the Grammys four years ago. But many in her inner circle are happy about the reunion, including her family. "Her family loves Chris!" an insider said. "She's brought him back to Barbados, and they all are very fond of him. They've been hoping for years that they'd get back together. They even want the pair to get married!" Sources say that even though they've been broken up for years, they never fell out of love with one another. "Over the years, they have communicated and seen each other, but now it's been long enough that they feel like they can be together again publicly," said the source. There are a couple of people who aren't over the moon about the reconciliation: Chris's ex, Karreuche Tran, and Jay-Z. "Karreuche is still friendly with Chris and she's still on his payroll," a source said. "But his reunion with Rihanna has to sting. That's why she stuck it to Chris by tweeting 'congrats' to his nemesis Frank Ocean for his Grammy win." Jay-Z also didn't want RiRi to get back with Chris, but he's respecting her decision. "Jay-Z realizes that she's a grown woman, and she's Rihanna and Chris Brown cuddle up at the Grammy Awards. CHRSTOPHER POLK-GETTY MAGES going to do what she wants to do. He was cordial to Chris when he accompanied Rihanna to his pre-grammy party at the Soho House," the source said. Katy and John still together Even though Katy Perry and Muse drummer Dominic Howard got very cozy at the band's afterparty in L.A. - as reported a few weeks ago - she's still with boyfriend John Mayer. Katy and John hopped around Grammy events together last weekend and appeared to be very happy and in love. "They're still going strong!" a source said. "Even though their schedules conflict a lot, they're always happy when they are reunited." John even told Rolling Stone, "'m happy in all aspects ofmy life." But another source warns: "Don't let that fool you! He's still a bad boy and always will be - he's just smarter about it now!" f John messes up, at least Katy has Dominic waiting for her on the sidelines. The Muse drummer is infatuated with Katy, and it never hurts to have a backup plan! Katy Perry and John Mayer are still together, despite reports of her cozying up with Dominic Howard (inset).

Bold headlights and a stylized grille lead the way rushing back to an upright, yet reduced greenhouse. New elements include head- and taillights that stream back into the front and rear fenders. The new exterior styling gives way to an all-new interior that is luxurious and extremely quiet.

80 2 THURSDAY, FEBRUARY SPECALSECTONS.SUNTMES.COM CUSTOM MEDA SOLUTONS NO TODAY' SHOMES Mortgage affordability needs looser standards What is your assessment of the new set of regulations issued by CFPB?" That question draws this quick reaction to the hundreds of new mortgage rules recently issued by CFPB, contamed in 804 densely packed pages: the agency has done a creditable job in an incredibly difficult situation. The rules cover a lot of territory, but those pertaining to borrower affordability probably have attracted the most attention. This article will comment on the new affordability rules, leaving other important issues 4ø' A 444 for future columns. The regulatory focus on affordability reflects our recent experience with a housing bubble, a period of self-reinforcing home price escalation. The bubble induced lenders ASK THE MORTGAGE PROFESSOR JACK GUTTENTAG to liberalize mortgage underwriting rules, relax enforcement of the rules, and approve loans to borrowers who could not afford them. The bubble burst early in 2007 when house prices stopped rising and started to decline.

Among other things it authorized a new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which it charged (among other things) with formulating and clarifying mortgage nffordability rules. Dodd-Frank also required CFPB to define qualified mortgages," which are mortgages that lenders can make with no or minimal risk of legal liability for violating the affordable loan rules. n my view, the Dodd-Frank approach to home mortgages was a knee-jerk reaction that was ill-advised. A nationwide housing bubble is a rare episode in our financial history. One has to go back to the 1920s to find anything at all comparable. While revamping the rules to prevent a recurrence of that event, even if it happens only once a generation, might make sense if the new rules were a standby, to be applied only when the situation demanded them, that is not the case. The new rules will take effect Jan. l0,2014.theywere illadvised because the problem today is the opposite of the one for which the rules were intended. When the bubble burst early in 2007, the excessive PRODUCED BY CUSTOM MEDA SOLUTONS.o. XN D SPECALSECTDNS.SUNTMES.COM Editor: Paul Kelma, (630) w o Advertise: Jessica Sanfilippo, (847) Dick Walters, (708) liberality in mortgage lending practice was quickly replaced by its opposite: excessive restraint. The problem today is that many perfectly good loans are not being made because of the heightened risk aversion of lenders, and the tightened affordability rules already in place. The lender response reflects the heavy losses realized on loans made during the bubble period, plus the fines and legal expenses they have incurred in its aftermath. The tightened affordability rules by regulators and by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, issued after the bubble burst, were based on the premise that although we should have done this five years ago, better late than never." n fact, never would have been better than late. A central characteristic of the current affordability rules is their rigidity. A loan applicant who does not measure up on the affordability scale will be rejected, regardless of the strength of other transaction features. As an important example, have received scores of letters from self-employed borrowers with high credit scores who were willing to put as much as 40 percent down but could not get a loan because the income they were able to document was viewed as insufficient. Rejecting applicants who have a past record of meeting obligations and are willing to bet on their ability to afford a loan by placing substantial equity at risk is absurd. CFPB was obliged under Dodd- Frank to set new affordability rules despite the fact that the existing rules are unduly restrictive. ts implicit challenge has been to minimize the extent to which the new rules make a bad situation worse. From all indications, CFPB has done this pretty well. t has declared that qualifled loans cannot have any of the following provisions: interest-only; balloon payment; negative amortization; term exceeding 30 years; zero documentation; lender fees exceeding 3 percent of the loan amount (unless that amount is less than $100,000); or low iteaseri rate on an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM). These options will either disappear, or be substantially overpriced. However, very few loans are being made today with any of these features, so that the loss is small. Furthermore, there are several glimmers of hope that the new rules may actually alleviate some of the excessive stringency in the current market. The rule on balloon payments is subject to an exception wherein such loans are qualified if they are made by small banks in rural areas. This exception was required by Dodd-Frank and may or may not reflect an intention by CFPB to carve out additional exceptions in the future. A further glimmer is that the new rule says that isflo doc" loans cannot be qualifled, which is very different from declaring that qualified loans must be 5f doc" There is a range of documentation options between these two extremes. These include stated-income/documented assets, which was widely used before the crisis to qualify sell-employed borrowers. The option disappeared in the regulatory excesses of the aftermath, which made hill documentation the universal rule. This raises the possibility that CFPB at some future time might define loans with only partial documentation as qualified if they meet certain conditions. To have a significant impact, however, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would have to do the same. The writer is profe.or of finance ementus at the Wharton School oíthe University of Pennsyhlarlla.

Knight Publisher & CEO, Sun-Times Media Jill McDermott VP, Advertising jmmcdermoft poneerlocal.com Editorial Jennifer Thomas, Managing Editor for Features Sara Burrows News Producer Features Susan Kane Parker Calendar listings Printed with soy inks on recycled paper. There was a town n the Ukraine called Trochenbrod that is no more. Nearly the entire population - over 5,000 Jews - was wiped out during the Holocaust. A young American writer named Jonathan journeys to that area in search of a woman who may have saved his grandfather from that fate in "Everything s lluminated." Devon de Mayo directs Simon Block's adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's novel for Next Theatre Company. ' saw the original production of this play in London in thought it was a story that needed to be seen by Chicago audiences," de Mayo said. The play somehow manages to insert a great deal of humor into a very serious subject. "The play is hilarious," the director said. "But it goes to really, really dark places." n preparation for staging the show, de Mayo read and reread the source novel. She noted that dramaturg Kristin Leahey provided invaluable information on the history of Trochenbrod and what was happening in the Ukraine during World War l. The director and her cast also viewed a new documentary, "Lost Town," on a search for "this town that was wiped off the map. After the Nazis came through, only 33 people survived," de Mayo reported. The main character Jonathan is inspired to take this journey by the death of his grandfather and an old, yellowed photograph he has been given of his grandfather as a young man. Highland Park native Brad Smith plays Jonathan. "He's obviously very intelligent but also a little inexperienced and naive as far as getting out of his comfort zone and going out into the world," Smith said. The actor believes that Jonathan ventures to the Ukraine "to give his own life a little more context." Smith said he understands that need because, " am Jewish and my family came from Russia." Alex Goodrich is part of the cast of Next Theatre's "Everything s lluminated," based on the book about a Jewish young man's journey to the hometown of his grandfather. PHOTO BY SABELLA COELHO 'Everything s lluminated' Feb. 21-March 31 Next Theatre Company, Noyes cultural Arts center, 927 Noyes St., Evanston $30-$40, $25 for previews, Feb (847) , Ext. 2: nexttheatre.org Jonathan's guide and translator on this journey is a young Ukrainian named Alex (Alex Goodrich), accompanied by his grandfather (played by Bill Norris) and the grandfather's dog, Sammy Davis Jr. Jr. Actor Goodrich described Alex as "a young Ukrainian man who has grown up in a big city, relatively lower class." Much of the humor of the show is based on the way translator Alex mangles the English language. "t's the best malapropisms l've ever heard," Goodrich reported. "f show up and memorize these words in the right order and just say them, my job is done." The actor found an unusual way to capture a Ukrainian accent - by listening to the Brooklyn-based Ukrainian gypsy folk rock band Gogol Bordello. Of course, he received a lot more assistance from dialect coach Eva Brenneman. Alex is helping Jonathan track his family's history in World War l and yet, "His family history has never been discussed," Goodrich said. The actor indicated that when he first read the script, he wondered why his character is the one who periodically talks to the audience. "lt's very clear as the show progresses that it is both Jonathan's story and very much Alex's story as he learns secrets that his grandfather has been keeping his entire life about what his grandfather did during the war," Goodrich said.

100 48 THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 NL g ' Think 'Lincoln' has Oscars locked? 'Argo' begs to differ BY BRUCE NGRAM Film Critic Best Picture ex-filtrators? John Goodman, Alan Arkin and Ben Affleck in Argo." AP PHOTO/WARNER BROS.-Claire Folger Until recently, it seemed that "Lincoln" was a shoo-in to win most of its nomiñated categories at the Academy Awards this Sunday - and it mostly still looks that way, except for one little complication. The Oscar for Best Picture of 2012 is very much up for grabs. The simple fact that Ben Affleck had not even been nominated in the Best Director category for 'Argo" (The shame!) made it seem highly unlikely that film would win the top prize - simply because Best Picture and Best Director almost always go hand-in-hand. Now, however, with "Argo" having won Best Picture awards at the Golden Globes (where Affleck also won Best Director), the Producer's Guild, BAFTA (the British movie awards, where Affleck also won Best Director) and the Directors Guild (another Best Director prize), the film seems poised to split the traditional pairing for the first time since 1989's "Driving Miss Daisy." Or maybe not. "Lincoln," in addition to its other virtues, is the sort of prestige picture the Academy has always loved to recognize (and being the highest-grossing film among the nine Best Picture nominees doesn't hurt). Also, the fact that Affleck was snubbed as a Best Director contender could indicate that the Academy isn't feeling "Argo," for whatever reason. Only one thing is certain: There's going to be an unusual element of high drama and suspense at the Academy Awards this year. f "Lincoln" Day-Lewis is Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's historical ensemble drama, "Lincoln." Daniel and "Argo" split the vote and cancel each other out, what next? "Silver Linings Playbook" for Best Picture? Don't bet on it, but Here are my nervous predictions for winners in the major categories. Best Picture: "Argo." (Nominees: "Amour," "Life of Pi," "Argo," "Lincoln," "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Django Unchained," "Zero Dark Thirty") Best Director: Steven Spielberg, who certainly deserves it for "Lincoln" and who hasn't won in this category since "Saving Private Ryan." (Nominees: Michael Haneke, "Amour"; Benh Zeitlin, "Beasts of the Southern Wild"; Ang Lee, "Life of Pi"; Steven Spielberg, "Lincoln"; David O. Russell, "Silver Linings Playbook") Best Actor: Daniel Day- Lewis who, in addition to deserving it, has already picked up prizes from the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA and a long list of critics awards including the Chicago Film Critics Association. (Nom i- nees: Bradley Cooper, "Silver Linings Playbook"; Joaquin Phoenix, "The Master"; Daniel Day-Lewis, "Lincoln"; Denzel Washington, "Flight"; Hugh Jackman, "Les Miserables")
101 Movies pioneerlocal.com NL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, ALVN AlLEY AMERCAN DAE Robert Battle Artistic Director Masazumi Chaya Associate Artistic Director EATER CU TU R Al AMBASSADOR WORLD Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper star in "Silver Linings Playbook." Best Actress: The lead n this extremely tough race seems to be narrowing down to Emmanualle Riva for "Amour" and Jennifer Lawrence for "Silver Linings Playbook." The smart money's probably on Lawrence, because she gave a knockout performance (as usual) and she's already won at the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild. 'm picking Riva, though, because her performance was extraordinary - and because the voters at BAFTA thought so too. (Nominees: Jessica Chastain, 'Zero Dark Thirty"; Quvenzhane Wallis, "Beasts of the Southern Wild"; Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook"; Naomi Watts, "The mpossible"; Emmanuelle Riva, "Amour") Best Supporting Actor: Alan Arkin hit another career peak in "Argo," but Tommy Lee Jones ripped up the screen in "Lincoln" - and he has a prize from the Screen Actors Guild to prove it. (Nominees: Alan Arkin, "Argo"; Robert De Niro, "Silver Linings Playbook"; Philip Seymour Hoffman, "The Master"; Tommy Lee Jones, "Lincoln"; Christoph Waltz, "Django Unchained") Best Supporting Actress: Let's just say it straight out. t's going to be Anne Hathaway for "Les Miserables." She's already won at the Screen Actors Guild, the Golden Gloves and BAFTA. And if anybody ever drove a truck through an Oscar moment, she did with " Dreamed a Dream." (Nominees: Amy Adams, "The Master"; Sally Field, "Lincoln"; Anne Hathaway, "Les Miserables"; Helen Hunt, "The Sessions"; Jacki Weaver, "Silver Linings Playbook") Best Adapted Screenplay: Another virtually guaranteed sure-thing for "Lincoln" and screenwriter Tony Kushner, drawing partially from Doris Kearns Goodwin's "Team of Rivals." (Nominees: Chris Terno, "Argo"; Lucy Alibar and Benh Zeitlin, "Beasts of the Southern Wild"; David Magee, "Life of Pi"; Tony Kushner, "Lincoln"; David O. Russell, "Silver Linings Playbook." Best Original Screenplay: The screenplay category often turns into a consolation prize for films that didn't win Best Picture, meaning "Zero Dark Thirty" (Mark Boal), "Django Unchained" (Quentin Tarantino) and "Flight" (John Gatins) are almost certain to qualify. The more high-profile "Zero Dark" would seem to be the obvious choice, if not for the fact that Boal won so recently for writing "The Hurt Locker" and Tarantino has already won at the Golden Globes and BAFTA. Unless the Writers Guild awards suggest otherwise, 'm betting on the big T.

" heard the Lincoln Trio at Northmoor Country Club," he began. "They stayed for dinner and we had a chance to talk." Meanwhile, Mesirow Financial had constructed an auditorium in their downtown office, which holds about 250 people and was meant for corporate meetings. When Cedille Records, the local label specializing in recording Chicago classical music, became a Mesirow client, the financial firm used that space for a benefit concert for Cedille. The program included violinist Rachel Barton Pine, soprano Patrice Michaels and the Lincoln Trio. "lt was a lovely evening, a great success," Mesirow said. The next morning, Veda Levin, a senior member of the firm, said "Does anyone remember Texaco Presents? Why don't we do Mesirow Financial Presents?" And the idea was born. Fast forward to the Four Seasons hotel and a benefit for Merit School of Music. "The Lincoln Trio was playing and Desiree (Ruhstrat) came up to me and said that Ravinia was interested in programming 'Annelies' but the piece needed to be recorded," Meisrow said. "Welz Kauffman and shook hands and t was agreed." By an amazing coincidence, Whitbourn the composer had gone to school in England with David Cunliffe, cellist with the Lincoln Trio. "He was ahead of me at the Skinners' Grammar School for Boys," Cunliffe explained. "There weren't many musicians there and he influenced me in my musical studies." Whitbourn's choral piece for soprano and chorus had been written for the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and was performed in n 2009 he arranged it for chamber ensemble and it was performed in the The Hague in the Netherlands. Soprano Arianna Zukerman, daughter of violinist Pinchas Zukerman and flutist Eugenia Zukerman, was soloist for the chamber premiere in the Hague. "We performed it on what would have been Anne's 80th birthday," she said, when reached at her home in Washington, D. C. area, "and we were in a building that had been a Jewish synagogue." She will reprise the soprano role in Bennett Gordon Hall Sunday. "Anne's story is so remarkable," Zukerman said. "My grandparents were Holocaust survivors, and t remember going to the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam when was a little girl. Everyone has a connection to her." AFSCD iiilu..

Staged in Minneapolis in 2007, the opera will reçeive its Chicago-area premiere at Northwestern University over the next two weekends. "There came a moment when knew wanted to be an opera composer," said Gordon, whose songs have been performed by such operatic and Broadway luminaries as Renee Fleming, Dawn Upshaw, Nathan Gunn, Kelli O'Hara and Audra MacDonald. "So sent 16 of my songs out to a number of 'The Grapes of Wrath' 7:30 p.m. Feb. 22, Feb.28 and March 2:2 p.m. Feb. 24 Northwestern University's Cahn Auditorium, 600 Emerson St., Evanston $18; $8 for students (847) ; opera companies," he continued. "Minnesota Opera got back to me and said they wanted to do an opera based on Steinbeck's 'Grapes of Wrath' n conjunction with Utah Opera. "Let me re-read the book," he replied, but in fact, he had never read it. Facing a cross-country flight to Los Angeles, he bought a copy and started reading it on the plane. "lt was unbelievably gripping," he said during a phone interview from his home on New York City's Upper West Side. He admitted he initially found the story "a scary thing." The opera took four years to write. "'m a Jewish boy from Long sland," he said. "What did know about the Dust Bowl?" So in addition to reading Steinbeck's book, he traveled the country and talked to people, some of the whom lived through the Dust Bowl. He also read the award-winning nonfiction book The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan. "Ken Burns' PBS series 'The Dust Bowl' used material from that book," Gordon said. Some Chicagoans might remember Frank Galati's adaptation of "Grapes of Wrath" which originated in 1988 with Steppenwoif Theatre and went to Broadway in 1990, winning the 1990 Tony Award for Best Play.

"'m an American," said Orth, speaking from his home in Libertyville. "'m thrilled to do American operas." As a child Orth lived in Chicago, Montana and Texas, where he experienced dust storms. " remember the clouds, the howling winds all the time," he saidof that time. "We hung wet rags around the bed of my baby brother, but when the storm was over there was red dust everywhere." n preparation for the opera, he and the entire Northwestern cast watched the Ken Burns series. Director of Opera at NU Michael Ehrman also watched the Burns pieces. " have wanted to do 'Grapes of Wrath' since came to Northwestern," he declared, "but was waiting for the right voices, and now have them." He has plenty. The cast numbers 67, including 11 local children. Erhman believes that might be the largest cast ever assembled at Cahn for a Northwestern opera. Ehrman's association with the composer goes back to the early 1980s when they were both beginning their careers n Manhattan. " remember when Ricky would compose a new song, he'd invitq us all over to his apartment and play t for us," he said. For Ehrman, the presence of Robert Orth from the original cast s a terrific plus. Gordon's praise for the baritone who plays Uncle John is even more effusive. "f you are a American opera composer; you have to write a role for Robert Orth."

There are plenty of magical subplots to keep things needlessly complicated and just enough spell-casting action to keep the scenario from becoming lethargic. Yet, as in "Twilight," the only thing that really matters is whether or not it all ends in love's sweet, somewhat freaky, song. ESCAPE FR. T EARTH Rated PG for action and some mild rude humor Stars Brendan Fraser, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, R icky Gervais Astronaut Scorch Supernova (Fraser) finds himself trapped after responding to an SOS on a dangerous planet. Cal Brunker makes his feature directorial debut. A GOOD DA TO OL}ARD ** Rated R for violence and language Stars Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch Chaotic, overblown and utterly preposterous, the fifth installment in the "Die Hard" franchise proves that a non-stop action/adventure orgy can be a colossal bore. n past installments, terrorist-thwarting Detective John McClane (Willis) earned audience sympathy by being a bit of an underdog - doing his best with the adds against him. This time around, though, he's obnoxiously macho a la Stallone or Schwarzenegger while showing up his previously nonexistent, estranged CA-agent son (Coutney), who's involved in some terrorist-thwarting of his own in Moscow. For fans of insane, mega-budgeted, off-thecharts destruction only. Rated PC-13 for thematic material involving threatening behavior, and for violence and sexuality Stars Julianne Hough, Josh Duhamel A young woman (Hough) with a mysterious past forms a bond with a widower (Duhamel) that forces her to confront a dark secret. Lasse Hallstrom ("Salmon Fishing in the Yemen") directed the romance, based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks. r **½ Rated R for sexual content and language Stars Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy f you can get past the fact that the plot is preposterous and one of the characters is a violent, amoral lunatic and all you're expecting is a few decent laughs, "dentity Thief" isn't bad, really. t's better than a throat punch from McCarthy, in any case, who doles them out frequently as loveable sociopath con-artist Diana, who steals the identity of mild-mannered businessman Sandy (Bateman). To save his credit rating, his reputation and his job, Sandy decides to track Diana down personally, leading to all manner of action-comedy craziness involving a long road trip from Florida to Chicago, with homicidal drug dealers and a bad-guy bounty hunter in hot pursuit. Nothing about it makes sense, but the comedy does deliver on the humorous side, thanks to nice comic chemistry between wild-woman McCarthy and straight-man-par-excellence Bateman. lt's just a shame the script doesn't give them much to work with. be EFFEC1S Rated R for sexuality, nudity, violence and language Stars Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum lt's possible that the cool, cerebral "Side Effects" might be too clever for its own good, but how long has it been - in this era of generic, formulaic fare - since you last saw a movie that kept you guessing? Apparently the final theatrical feature by director Steven Soderbergh before switching to TV, "Side Effects" is a narrative chameleon that shifts through four or five different genres, beginning as a domestic/medical drama. When her husband (Tatum), comes home from prison, loyal wife Emily (Mara) slips into a suicidal depression. Then she winds up in the care of nice-guy psychiatrist Dr. Banks (Law), who prescribes a drug that ultimately leads Emily to commit a shocking act that sends her to prison. Or so it seems.
109 u NL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, New releases on DVD, Blu-ray BY BRUCE NGRAM Film Critic NEW THS WEEK L u Rated R for language and some violent images Stars Ben Affleck, John Goodman, Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston Combining real-life espionage drama with a side order of Hollywood satire, "Argo" is never less than fascinating and it's also, by turns, extremely suspenseful and surprisingly funny. This is something special, deftly and entertainingly recounting the littleknown true story of a CA operative who flew into ran during the 1980 hostage crisis and rescued six Amencans who had managed to slip away to the Canadian embassy. The major laughs come from the Hollywood satire when a phony movie production is set up with the help of a makeup artist and a washed-up producer. That's all forgotten in the nerve-wracking final act when Affleck and his charges try to bluff their way out of the country. Extras include commentary by Affleck and featurettes such as "Rescued from Tehran: We Were There." ANNA AREN Rated R for some sexuality and violence Stars Keira Knightley, Jude Law. Aaron Taylor-Johnson With more than two dozen film adaptations of Tolstoy's classic novel already in existence, director Joe Wright and screenwriter Tom Stoppard apparently felt something extraclever was needed to spruce up the old girl for another go-round. Hence the decision to set this "Anna Karenina" on the stag of a 19th-century theater. That intriguing device is Ben Affleck directs and stars as Tony Mendez in "Argo." executed with impressive visual flair by Wright, with his actors perpetually moving from one setting to another while dodging moving scenery. Unfortunately, so much effort is made to keep us visually dazzled that it's difficult to maintain emotional involvement as the story unfolds. ** Rated PG-13 Stars Victoria Justice, Chelsea Handler, Thomas Middleditch A strange blend of sweet young romance and crude high school sex comedy on training wheels, "Fun Size" seems to be setting out to model sleazy teen behavior for impressionable 'tween girls. This Nickelodeon production is nowhere near as raunchy as the average R-rated teen comedy. lt does set out in that direction, with enough entry-level infusions of potty humor, gross-out gags and precocious sex to titillate wannabe teenagers. lt's all about one wild Halloween night for nice girl Wren (Justice) and her not-quite-so-nice best friend April (Jane Levy), who fumes when Wren's mom (Handler) makes her take her obnoxious little brother trick-or-treating. Extras include a gag reel and deleted scenes. For more, go online to read the full list ofnew releases in the Entertainment section ofyour town's page.

Row about give them a job? Many companies across the United States are making a pledge to hire veterans and active reservists. ts a way to say thank you and, best of all, it's good for the bottom line. And the job outlook for veterans could be getting better. n his recent tour to promote his jobs bill, President Obama announced that he will push for a tax break for businesses hiring veterans. The proposed tax credit, called Returning Heroes, would offer up to $5,600 for companies hiring veterans who have been out of work for six months or longer: the Wounded Warriors credit would offer up to $10,000 for companies hiring wounded veterans who have been out of work for the same length of time. We ask our men and women in uniform to leave their careers, leave their families and risk their lives to fight for our country," Obama said. 'The last thing they should have to do is fight for a job when they come home. Veteran Job Protections Veterans have job protection under the Uniformed Service Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of USERRA guarantees active reservists, guardsmen and veterans the right to keep their jobs, or be reemployed at similar jobs, during and after periods of service. lt also requires employers to make reasonable accommodation for njured or disabled veterans who are returning to work. For companies like LadderPort, a small manufacturing firm in Brighton, Mich., adhering to the law is both patriotic and sound financial policy. it can be profitable for your company," says Dick Dyk, LadderPort Director of Security. But you need to think outside the corporate box." Dyk is a volunteer for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Defense Department Agency that encourages employers to sign a pledge stating that their company will honor the law and reemploy veterans, active reservists and members of the National Guard. The ESGR also acts as an ombudsman, mediating conflicts in the workplace. LadderPort Operations Manager Michele Oras says that 20 percent of the company's employees are veterans, active reservists and members of the National Guard. She stresses the benefits that military-trained employees have to offer companies, including specialized skills and abilities that are often hard to find in the civilian workforce, such as: 41!ÜRRENTLY H p AaLe TOVNG ured Job CAREER FMR MULTPLE EXHBTORS Tuesday, February 19th 1OAM-3PM FREE TO ALL CANDDATES! ncludes special opportunities for Veterans. EOE Nay Pier 600 E Grand Ave Chicago, L For more information, us at: psijobfair.com To Place An Ad, Call Specialzed training Many veterans have skills that place them in high demand for certain types ofjobs in areas like engineering, manufacturing, security, and intelligence. But even the youngest and least senior members of the military have more training than the average entry-level applicant. All veterans have been through four months of boot camp and many months more of additional, specialized training for their occupation specialty. Team training Members of the military are trained to work as a team. For manufacturing companies like LadderPort, that's a distinct advantage. We need guys that can work together without being on top of each other and willing to be part of the team, rather than,,," says Oras. The faster they can get our products out the door, the more money we make." Personal responsibility Returning veterans and active reservists understand responsibility better than most. Very young servicemen and women have huge responsibilities in the military, far beyond the obligations that most of us face at work. Everybody always says there's no '' in team. Well, that's junk," Dyk says. it stands for individual responsibility... And the military creates people that do that better than anybody else." Fox Metro Water Reclarn District Fnancial considerations Even f companies never see a dime in tax breaks, hiring veterans can contribute positively to a company's financial picture. n addition to providing free training in a variety of valuable professional skills, it may also help keep your company in the running for government contracts, says Oras, since it's less likely that the government would award a contract to a company that wasn't in compliance with USERRA.

Notre Dame's first postseason game will be against the winner of Monday night's Maine East-Von Steuben game, The Blue Demons are the Glenbrook North Sectional's No. 18 seed and Von Steuben is the No. 15 seed. Dons banking on their experience BY DAN SHALN As the No. 2 seed, the Notre Dame boys basketball team is among the favorites to emerge from the Glenbrook North Sectional. But top-seeded Maine South, not to mention No. 3 New Trier, No. 4 Niles North, No. S Loyola and No. 6 St. Patrick all have similar sectional-title aspirations. Notre Dame has defeated Niles North and St. Patrick this season, but lost earlier this month to suddenly-streaking Loyola. Dons coach Tom Les said it's hard to designate one team as the favorite to win the sectional. ' think it's pretty much up for grabs," he said. "There are five or six teams that are capable (of winning)." The Dons, who entered the Tuesday's season finale against Lincoln Park with a 21-5 record, start the postseason at 6 p.m. Feb. 26 when they face either No.15 Von Steuben or No.18 Maine East in the Class 4A Glenbrook South Regional. One thing Les knows is that his Dons are not likely to encounter a style of play they haven't seen this season. Even in a potential Chicago State Supersectional Notre Dame's Donte Stephenson dribbles by his defender thanks to the pick set by teammate Danny Lazzara.

GLEASON-for Sun-Times Media matchup against Simeon or Whitney Young, the squad from Niles will have positive experiences to call upon. On Dec. 2, Notre Dame led Morgan Park for three quarters before falling to a Mustangs team that went on to knock off Simeon in the CPS semifinals. Les said earlier this week that he expected to have starting forward Eddie Serrano back healthy again for the postseason. The senior injured his foot n the loss to Manan Catholic on Friday, a defeat that dropped Notre Dame to 5-3 in the ESCC. Serrano then missed the win over St. Charles North two days later. n the St. Charles North game, two other key Dons showed they were getting back to 100 percent.

133 NL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, SEASON PASS seasonpass.suntimes.com/pioneer Schedule leaves little time for hoops [BY JONAH ROSENBLUM Contributor ARLNGTON The Yeshiva boys basketball team hasn't practiced in about a month, according to Shiomo Ashkanazy. That's hardly the result of laziness. nstead, it's the result of the taxing schedule of an Orthodox Jewish school Ashkanazy estimated that he was at the Skokie school from 7:30 in the morning until 8:30 at night on Mondays, Tuesday and Thursdays, With Friday dedicated to the Sabbath, forcing students to abandon school early to avoid the early sunsets of the winter season, only Wednesdays and Sundays remain for basketball. And with Yeshiva trying to fit in as many games as possible, there simply isn't much time remaining for practice. 'lt affects t a little bit, but no excuses," said Ashkanazy, a junior point guard. "We take those two hours (per practice) and put them to the best." There's also not much space for Yeshiva to work with. According to coach ra Shyman, the court his team played on Monday at Christian Liberty was far bigger than what his team is accustomed to working with. After the game - a season-ending overtime loss to Roycemore - he huddled with one of his juniors and asked him to return in better shape so that he can better handle the larger HSA courts. Even so, his team kept running on Monday night. "You can see them watching them play defense," Shyman said. "They're dying tired and they're moving their feet and they're playing. We only had three fouls in the fourth quarter and we had to start fouling on purpose because we were moving our feet so well on defense." And his team kept improving all season long. " can't complain about the way they played," Shyman said. "This team was, frankly, terrible in November and December, and for the last six weeks, has gotten steadily better every game." By season's end, Yeshiva had earned the No. 4 seed in the Class la Christian Liberty Regional. Roycemore was the No. 5 seed. "What told them is that in the three years that l've been coaching varsity basketball, this is the first time that my team steadily got better all year long," Shyman said. "Every other team plateaued like in the middle of January and then just coasted through the rest of the year. These guys kept getting better. You can't ask for any more than that." Yeshiva's Shlomo Ashkanazy shoots a fadeaway jumper against Roycemore during the Class la Christian Liberty Regional opening-round game Monday in Arlington Heights.

JOEL LERNER-S un-times Media EVANSTON After exchanging handshakes, Maine East's players sat on the sidelines at Beardsley Gym and let the image of what it looks like to win a regional title sink into their memories. Maine East coach Karol Hanusiak hopes that vision, along with lessons learned from a blowout loss to Evanston on Feb. 14, provides the Blue Demons with extra motivation this off season. 'We're only losing two seniors," Hanusiak said. "l've got all these kids coming back. want them to see what it looks like, what the feel is and the pictures (Evanston's players took with the plaque), everything. Hopefully they'll want that."

This season was also the first time in 11 years the Blue Demons (15-15) reached double-digit victories, according to Hanusiak. Maine East's success did not make its postseason matchup against one of the state's best defensive squads any easier, according to freshman guard Janelle Alba Garner. 'lt was a little bit overwhelming, but you've got to get past that so you can play your best out there (to) get the win," said Alba Garner, a freshman. "We have such a big future with this team." As Hanusiak said throughout the season, Maine East has had to learn how to win and get accustomed to playing in tight situations with games on the line. The next step for returning players is to challenge, and defeat, teams like Evanston. "This is good for us," Hanusiak said of the 30-point loss to the Wildkits. "No one wants to beat teams that are inferior to you. You have to beat the better teams and, unfortunately at times, you have to lose to the better teams in order for you to get better."

Galanopoulos, Wolves hope to bounce back BY ERC VAN DRL j When Alex Galanopoulos looks back on her junior basketball season, June 22, 2012, will always be the point when everything went south. Galanopoulos tore her left ACL as she went up for a ayup at the Doug Bruno Basketball Camp that day. The injury, a complete tear of the ACL and a torn meniscus, required surgery and forced Galanopoulos to miss her junior basketball season after starting as a sophomore. n spite of the injury, Galanopoulos was one of the Wolves' two captains this season. The junior concentrated on being a vocal leader - was always screaming...

"We had a really young team, so this year was a learn- ng experience for everyone," Galanopoulos said.
