  • 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." "I immediately recognized - although the triple bills of three individual dances or excerpts were entertaining - they didn't really serve the community because there is a story...

    It's around this time of year - when the green shoots of tulips are looking promising, daffodils are already bursting open, and bees are thinking seriously about waking up - that your social calendar might also be starting to feel like it's equally blooming with activities.

  • A spring salad to share with family and friends

    Amy McCauley|Updated Mar 6, 2024

    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...

    Opening night is in less than two weeks, and the cast of "Artificial Hinstelligence" is rehearsing at The Community House.

  • Library will put the spring in your step this spring

    John Kokoris|Updated Feb 21, 2024

    Now that I have polished off the last of my Girl Scout cookies, paczki and Valentine's chocolates, it is time to lace up my gym shoes and burn off the extra layer that has been keeping me warm this winter. The weather is getting better, the sun is setting later and the half marathon I foolishly signed up for is suddenly just around the corner. As lazy as I can be over the winter, I genuinely miss being outside and moving around. In addition to training for my race, I'll be...

  • Church celebrates man, his generosity

    Pamela Lannom|Updated Feb 14, 2024

    By Pamela Lannom [email protected] Union Church of Hinsdale had plenty of reasons to celebrate Irv Clarke Sunday. First, it was the day before Clarke, who has lived most of his life in Hinsdale, turned 100. Second, he is generously supporting the church's efforts to open an early childhood education center in Summit. He hopes to encourage others to contribute as well by matching donations up to a substantial amount. "It's a real good project and I'm glad to be able to...

    With Valentine's Day just around the corner, things are heating up in Hinsdale - especially where benefit fundraising events are concerned. In thinking about all things pink-and-red-related, I would be remiss not to mention Misericordia Women's League's annual Heart of Gold Benefit, this year titled, "As Gold as It Gets." Since its inception in 1996, the Misericordia Women's League has hosted this benefit gala, which has grown to attract more than 650 guests. This year's...

  • The dinner date and still the one chicken

    Amy McCauley|Updated Jan 31, 2024

    Our first date might not have happened if my husband had known I could cook. I had gone to a concert with a small group of friends. As I was getting in my car, my friend Mark invited me to an impromptu dinner at his apartment. Thrilled but now nervous, I fumbled my car keys. I watched as they went flying and managed to wedge themselves in the seat. At this point, I had lost all hope of looking graceful. But he was kind and patient as I finally managed to fish them out....

    Rip Wheeler is an affectionate, goofy, 1-year-old who needs a home. He is a little shy around people he doesn't know, but once he gets to know you, all he wants is to sit in your lap and be your friend.

  • Now that's a tasty meatball!

    Pamela Lannom|Updated Jan 31, 2024

    Meatballs come in about as many varieties as you can imagine, with different kinds of meats and fillers. I once judged a meatball contest and ate one that contained raisins. But at Altamura in Hinsdale, the meatball is kept simple. One single ingredient is key to making the meatballs tender and delicious. "This is our imported bread. This is what I use for bread crumbs," said Carmela St. John, who owns the Italian take-and-bake pizza and specialty shop with her husband,...
