Old Nichols on Endangered List:
The old Nichols Library has been named to Landmarks Illinois’ list of most endangered historic places for 2018. This announcement comes as crews prepare the site for partial demolition. The 120-year-old building is a local landmark, so to preserve the majority of that facade, just the south wing built in1962 and the original east wall is being taken down, as approved by Naperville’s Historic Preservation Commission. The demolition will allow owners Dwight Avram and Jeff Brown more room for construction of a mixed-use development on the site. This weekend members of the Save Old Nichols group wove red hearts into the construction fencing to show their support for the historic building, which Landmarks Illinois’ president and CEO says should be preserved and reused.
Ogden Lane Closure:
Drivers take note – the eastbound and northbound outside lane of Ogden Avenue near Rickert Drive is currently under construction. That lane will be closed from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. today through Friday, as crews install new curbs, and a new driveway to a development on the 800 block of Rickert Drive. Expect delays if you are traveling through that area, and please keep an eye out for workers.
It was a big night for DVC match-ups on the volleyball court. Andrew Kohut and company from Metea Valley traveled to Naperville Central for a very competitive game. In the first set, Central’s John Davis was up at the net with his powerful swing to help the Redhawks to a set one victory. He would tally 16 kills on the night. But Andrew Kohut and Matt Nealon would rival the Redhawks in set two, battling back and forth, pushing the set into extra points for the Mustangs to even it up. In the third, Eddie Forsythe, Andrew Kohut, and Matt Nealon would be the trio to knock it down and walk away with the road win.
On the other side of town, at Neuqua Valley, rival Waubonsie Valley stepped on to the Wildcat court. In the first set, Neuqua Valley came out ready to win, thanks to Kevin Kauling who tallied two service aces and the set winning kill, 25-13. He also had 15 assists on the night. In set two, Warrior Elliot Myong did all he could at the net, getting 7 kills, but that was no match to Jeremy Grove who willed the team to a second set win with 11 kills, 25-23.
First Female Deputy Chief:
And a final note of congratulations to Kathy Anderson, who was officially sworn in yesterday as deputy chief, making her the first female to hold that position at the Naperville Police Department. She started with the department in 1993 as a patrol officer.
