  • Six things you might not know about midwifery care

    Megan Belleavia|Updated Apr 17, 2024

    For women, a health care journey can be a winding road with a lot of natural and unexpected health changes. From well-person care and prevention to family planning, conception, pregnancy, delivery, post-partum and even breast health - there's one thing that can remain consistent: our client's active decision-making in their health care. And that is the very focus of certified nurse midwives. Many people assume that midwives only deliver babies via home birth. This is far from...

  • Take a walk 'Into the Woods'

    Ken Knutson|Updated Apr 17, 2024

    Last year Hinsdale Central's drama and music departments were deliberating over which musical to put on in spring of 2024. Like a stroke of inspiration from a fairy godmother, drama teacher Erin Lundin landed on the Stephen Sondheim-scored "Into the Woods." "We have perfect kids to do this show this year, and it just sort of gelled immediately. We knew right away it was the right (production) for this year," Lundin related. The mash-up of famous Brothers Grimm stories will be...

  • A tasty solution to the great dinner dilemma

    Amy McCauley|Updated Apr 3, 2024

    Aretha Franklin was once asked what her greatest creative challenge was and her answer was surprising. "Trying to figure out what to cook for dinner... nightly." The interviewer, Larry London, paused and laughed. Her honesty was refreshing and at the same time endearing because it made you realize that even the queen of soul had to think about dinner. That's the problem with dinner; it's so nightly. Even if you love to cook it's easy to hit a creative challenge when planning...

  • Get ready to celebrate National Library Week in April

    Martha Kennedy|Updated Mar 27, 2024

    I am fortunate to have met many delightful members of our community at Hinsdale Public Library's front desk. Mr. S. was an avid reader. He had a positive, robust energy that was, on every meeting, infectious. He visited the library just about weekly and we always loved seeing him. He'd check out a stack of books and never needed a due date slip because he knew he would see us the following week. When other patrons were at the front desk, he would invariably let them know that...

  • Mixed feelings a challenge in some relationships

    Alisa Messana|Updated Mar 20, 2024

    Many of us have a person in our lives that we have mixed feelings about. It could be a relative, friend or a partner. You might really care for and love that person while at the same time feel disappointed and/or hurt by them. We might hope for change in our relationship with that person yet continue to be let down. How close you are emotionally to them and how frequent your interactions are can also impact the intensity of our mixed feelings. My father, who passed away in...

  • Salt Creek Ballet performs 'Don Quixote'

    Pamela Lannom|Updated Mar 15, 2024

    Erica De La O, artistic director of Salt Creek Ballet, wants to do more than create learning experiences for her students. She wants to create wonderful performances for the community. So, for the third year in a row, the troupe's spring performance will be of a full-length ballet, "Don Quixote."

  • A spring salad to share with family and friends

    This mandarin orange salad is the kind of dish that has you wanting seconds from the first bite. My aunt is the one who first made it for us at a family gathering, and she graciously shared the recipe she had gotten from a friend. Since then, this festive salad has become one of my go-to sides for brunch or spring celebrations. Shared recipes are some of my favorites, because I know a recipe that has been passed along for years between family and friends is usually going to...
