Science Center

This morning the ribbon was cut for North Central College’s new 125,000 square foot Science Center. The state of the art building is equipped to accommodate the latest cutting edge technology with 18 teaching labs, 16 research labs and an auditorium/lecture hall. Ground was broken for the $60 million facility in May of 2015.

Policy Change

A local prayer group is moving their annual National Day of Prayer event from the Naperville Municipal Center’s Council Chambers to a rented meeting space in that same building. The change was made due to a review of city policy, which prompted city officials to limit the use of Council Chambers to governmental groups. The National Day of Prayer will be held May 4.

Baseball Begins

Warm weather over the weekend finally allowed for the start of high
school baseball. Metea Valley looked ready to go as the Mustangs’ offense exploded for ten runs in the first inning over visiting Hononegah. Metea would score 15 on the afternoon, which was more than enough for pitcher Matt Vass. Vass struck out seven batters as the Mustangs start the season with a 15-1 win.

Benet Academy also had its home opener on Friday against Glenbard South. The game was knotted up at one until Marty Dosen broke the tie with a two run home run in the 5th to put the Redwings up 3-1. Glenbard South brought in the tying run to the plate in the 7th, but Zack Strons induces the game ending double play. Redwings take the win 4 to 1.
