    Alisa Messana|Updated May 15, 2024

    'Tis the season of college acceptances. Social media feeds are full of proud parents making announcements. Graduating high school is indeed an exciting time filled with anticipation of setting off into young adult life. Yet, teens are still Adults In Training. This time can be filled with as many highs and lows as prior teen years. Recently, I've noticed more high school grads who head to college and return home before semester's end, often to attend intensive mental health...

  • Start of May means the sprint to summer begins

    Allison Peters|Updated May 8, 2024

    And just like that, we're in May. Mayhem, Maycember, Mayday ... whatever you call it, it feels like a full sprint at breakneck pace to the start of summer when everything shifts around town. Summer in Hinsdale is full of warm nights at Pierce Park, catching up with friends at Uniquely Thursdays, and family fun activities at the Hinsdale Public Library. It's less about charity fundraisers and more about reconnecting with community - well, mostly. The society scene never really...

  • The sisterhood of the summer waffles

    Amy McCauley|Updated May 1, 2024

    The best Mother's Day gift we ever gave my mom was a Belgian waffle maker. I feel certain she's the one who gave us the suggestion. However, it was really my sister Laura and I who loved it. I was in middle school that year. When summer arrived, my sister and I spent all our time swimming. My mom would be at work when we came home from morning practice. As a result, the two of us were left in charge of making our own breakfast. We always came home starving with the kind of...

  • Art and culture a priority at Hinsdale Public Library

    John Kokoris|Updated Apr 24, 2024

    I am heading to Oak Brook's Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art this weekend to see, among other things, a cinnabar screen encrusted with carved gemstones. The screen was a birthday present to the Chinese emperor Qianlong in 1791, and since my own birthday is fast approaching, it seemed like a good time to research gift ideas. Right now, I just can't decide between asking my wife for a gem-encrusted cinnabar screen or just a night off from doing the dishes. To free up some money...

  • 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...
