6th District Congressional Forum:
Seven candidates are vying for the Democratic nomination for the 6th Congressional District of Illinois, and last night more than 300 people came out to Glenbard South High School to hear those candidates’ platforms. The League of Women Voters hosted the forum, which covered topics such as gun control, universal healthcare and how each candidate would overcome the Republican opponent in the general election. Democratic candidates include Kelly Mazeski, Amanda Howland, Sean Casten, Jennifer Zordani, Becky Anderson Wilkins, Ryan Huffman and Carole Cheney. Sitting Congressman Peter Roskam is running unopposed for the Republican nomination. Primary election day is March 20.
Safer Naper: Burglary Prevention and Residential Safety:
March is here and with it comes the third month of the Naperville Police Department’s Safer Naper Campaign. This month’s focus is burglary prevention and residential safety. The department says so far this year there have been 22 home burglaries, which is just slightly above average for this time of year, as the city has averaged 104 residential burglaries per year for the last three years. Some tips to keep your home safe include locking your doors, leaving your porch lights on whether you’re home or not, and keeping valuable items out of sight. You can learn more at two presentations scheduled by the police department this month.

Boys Basketball Regionals:
The boys basketball regionals continued with semi final play last night. Naperville Central faced off with Glenbard West at Addison Trail.
After a back and forth start, the Redhawks began to pull away in the 2nd quarter with some tough baskets in the paint and some timely three point shooting. With Central up double digits late in the game, Glenbard West’s Carter Lindstrom nearly led a one-man comeback, cutting the deficit to three with ten seconds to play. The Hilltoppers went for the shot to send the game to overtime, but great defense from the Redhawks preserved the 54-51 win.
Central will face Benet Academy in the regional final tomorrow night, and top seed and DVC champion Naperville North will host Geneva for its regional championship tomorrow night as well.
