On Tuesday, Naperville police arrested two people in possession of crystal methamphetamine not far from Neuqua Valley High School. 31-year-old Lisa Nguyen of Chicago and 37-year-old David Brenner of Glendale Heights were apprehended on the 3000 block of Cedar Glade Drive, which intersects with 95th Street near the high school, Frontier Sports Complex, and the 95th Street Library.

Both were taken to the Will County jail.
California Closets Denied Variance:
At last night’s Planning and Zoning meeting, the commission voted 7-2 to deny a conditional use variance requested by California Closets to open a showroom on the first floor of Naper Place in Downtown Naperville. The California Closets showroom would be considered a general service business, which is not permitted on the first floor of most downtown buildings. That’s because they don’t typically need the visibility or foot traffic that comes with it, and is not the type of place pedestrians stop by on impulse. California Closets may take their proposal to City Council without the recommendation from the Plan Commission.
Boys Gymnastics Sectional:
The Wheaton Warrenville South Boys Gymnastics Sectional was held last night with Naperville Central, North, and an individual from Neuqua Valley all stepping onto the mat. Redhawk Griffin Irle rocked it out on the parallel bars. He hit all his motions and the landing for a 6.7 score. Central finished 7th with a score of 113.5.
As for their rivals, North would finish 4th in the competition thanks in large part to Michael Hunter Jr.’s floor routine, which would tie him for 5th place with a score of 9.65. Michael Baren, the lone Wildcat, would not be left alone last night. He would grab first on vault and parallel bars, 4th on the Pommel Horse and 2nd all-around, pushing him to the state meet, which will take place next weekend at Hoffman Estates.
North Central Team Makes History:
The North Central College Women’s Lacrosse team made history last night in the program’s first ever post season game. Despite a pair of half hour lightning delays, NCC erased an early four-goal deficit to defeat Carthage College by a score of 20 to 17. 16-second half goals allowed the Cardinals to move on to the CCIW Championship game at Illinois Wesleyan on Saturday.
