Lester: 'Duke' in hospice as fight for Medal of Honor continues - Chicago Daily Herald

Monday, November 28, 2016

John Thune of South Dakota is working to expedite a review by the secretary of the Navy to authorize the award.A vow for an elevatorAfter offering to give a double-amputee war veteran a tour of the Elk Grove VFW Post, Kitty Weiner tells me she was horrified not to have thought of a key detail: the stairs. "My heart came out of my chest," Weiner, a political consultant and former longtime aide to U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam of Wheaton, tells me. After the veteran had to be carried in and out of the building, Weiner vowed to do whatever it took to help the VFW get an elevator.It's not cheap, though, with estimates for installing an elevator at the Devon Avenue facility running between $155,000 and $165,000, Weiner says.The effort has truly taken a village, with Mayor Craig Johnson helping to help organize a fundraiser and Castle Chevrolet offering to raffle off a 2017 Corvette for the cause. Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20, with the drawing to be held July 25 at the last Mid-Summer Classic concert at the Elk Grove Village Green. For information on where to buy tickets, visit www.ccceg.org.  Democrat Susana Mendoza, left, beat Republican Leslie Munger for Illinois comptroller. -Munger's strengthPolitical data analyst Scott Kennedy recently did a deep dive of Illinois election results and found, among other tidbits, that even though Republican Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger of Lincolnshire lost statewide to Democratic Chicago City Clerk Susana Mendoza, she outperformed Republicans at the top of the ticket -- including President-elect Donald Trump and departing U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk of Highland Park -- everywhere but in southern Illinois. Munger's performance was particularly strong in the collar counties, where she took an average of 51 percent of the vote, compared to Trump's 41 percent and Kirk's 45 percent. In suburban Cook County, Munger took 39 percent of the vote, while Trump took 30 percent and Kirk took 33 percent.

Longtime Prospect teacher was a 'glass half full' guy - Chicago Daily Herald

Monday, September 19, 2016

High School, he studied English at Elmhurst College and then earned a master's degree from Indiana University. He began teaching first at Fremd High School in Palatine, then spent several years at Elk Grove High School, before taking a position at Prospect in 1976.He met his wife, Polly Brothers, a home economics teacher, in the Elk Grove High School teachers lounge in fall 1970. The pair were married a few months later on Jan. 30, a date they'd chosen with the hopes of having a three-day anniversary weekend for many years to come, as Presidents Day was then marked on Feb. 1.The couple's commitment to education lives on in the career choices of their four children -- all of whom became teachers. Galson teaches English at Glenbrook North High School in Northbrook, son Andrew is a geology professor at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin, son Brian teaches English as a Second Language at Port Chester High School in New York and daughter Susan teaches fifth grade at O.A. Thorpe Scholastic Academy in Chicago."He was always tinkering with lesson plans. I know that he loved to watch the Sunday morning show with Charles Kuralt. He'd tape the personal interest pieces and get kids writing about current events," Galson said.Knudsen also loved teaching his students about Mark Twain's writing, which he said had a certain humor and playfulness to it that he appreciated. He and his wife were avid campers and many of the places the family visited became the source of lesson plans.At Prospect, Knudsen grew the school's debate program and built relationships with local political figures, including U.S. Sen. Paul Simon. He took his students on trips to Washington, D.C., for mock debates on the floor of the House of Representatives.Had he not been diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2002, Galson said, her father would have been enamored with Facebook as a way to keep in touch with his many former students.Knudsen spent the last years of his life at a memory care center in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, just a few miles away from the family's vac

Obituary: Sheldon L. Slagel - Twin Falls Times-News

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Assemblies of God and became a pastor of his first church in Long Pine, Nebraska. His ministry then took him to pastor churches in Rupert, Idaho; Buhl, Idaho; Jerome, Idaho; Kamiah, Idaho and Elk Grove, California. He, along with Del Storey, co-founded and pastored the inter-denominational church of Christian Center in Twin Falls, Idaho. He also traveled extensively throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, New Zealand and Australia ministering at Christian retreats, conferences and missions.His other passions in life included playing and watching golf, flying his airplane, attending the Junior High and High school sports events of his children and grandchildren, and cheering for the Boise State University’s football team. His greatest enjoyment was witnessing the successes of his family and church members and was always there to encourage us if we fell short. With him there was no such thing as a stranger. In his eyes, everyone around him provided an opportunity to engage in conversation, tell jokes, laugh and smile. His sense of humor, devotion to family, and endless love for Jesus were deeply ingrained and evident to the very end.

I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’Instead of flowers or a donation in his name, Dad would have been honored and humbled if you would remember him by sharing Christ’s love and helping those who Jesus spoke of in Matthew 25.Memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm Monday, April 10, 2017 at Twin Falls Reformed Church, 1631 Grandview Dr. N., Twin Falls, ID.

Mount Prospect builder's legacy of community service lauded - Chicago Daily Herald

Monday, December 26, 2016

That grew into more recent projects such as the 21-acre Buckingham Place on the former Littelfuse property in Des Plaines, the new Dekalb High School, the Elk Grove Township District 59 Early Learning Center and all five Palatine-Schaumburg High School District 211 swimming pools.Friends, family and business associates credit his success in part to his charismatic personality.He was a "regular" guy with a sense of humor and the ability to entertain a roomful of people with stories."He didn't cut corners when it came to consumers," said Butch Ehrke, Des Plaines assistant director of community development. "I think that's why he got along so well with the school districts.""Nick truly understood that the work they did, especially for school districts, was more than just 'brick and mortar,' recognizing it has a real impact on all its stakeholders," said Tony Rossi, executive director for facilities and operations with District 59.Dan Benassi, a real estate broker, worked with Papanicholas to acquire the ice arena property."It's a testament to their reputation that their vendors worked around the clock for six months to get that project done on time and on an unbelievably tight schedule," he said.He told how Papanicholas, in his blue jeans and sweatshirt, negotiated the Littelfuse deal at that company's headquarters. "He simply said, 'I want to buy this and here is my money.'"Papanicholas passed down his expertise and love of his work to his children as he welcomed them into the business."He instilled a work ethic in us at an early age," Nick Jr. said. "I started laboring for him at 12 years old. … It set us up for success at such a young age."Visitation will be held from 3 to 9 p.m. today at Cumberland Funeral Chapels, 8300 W. Lawrence Ave., Norridge. Services will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at St. James Catholic Church, 820 N. Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights.
