Che Figata Opens:

A new Italian restaurant opens tonight at CityGate Centre. Che Figata, an Italian phrase that means cool or awesome, is a modern-style Italian eatery. Their open kitchen plan is designed to show off their wood-fire grill, pizza oven, and chef’s counter so you can watch your food being prepared. And if you love a dish or ingredient in your meal, they also have an in-house market where they sell fresh herbs, olive oils, and even take-home meals. Buon Appetito!

Trade Apprenticeship Expo:

Yesterday, the DuPage County Building & Construction Trades Council, along with PowerForward DuPage and CISCO hosted the 2018 DuPage County Trade Apprenticeship Expo. The event gave high school students and post-graduates a chance to meet with workers in a wide variety of trades, and learn about different apprenticeship programs. The event was held at the IBEW Local 701 Union Hall in Warrenville, and was free to all.

Fawn Rescued:

Naperville police officer Matt Minuth saved the life of a newborn fawn shortly after its mother was struck by a car and killed. On Memorial Day the officer responded to the accident in south Naperville, and though the doe could not be saved, she delivered a fawn soon after she died. Minuth stayed with the fawn, which had suffered a broken leg, until Animal Control arrived and took it to Oaken Acres Wildlife Center in Sycamore, where the fawn is on the road to recovery.

Neuqua Valley/Plainfield Central Baseball:

Neuqua Valley and Plainfield Central baseball played through a downpour yesterday afternoon in the sectional semi finals. Neuqua took the lead in the 2nd inning thanks to a two run double from catcher Jake Wenz. Wildcats starter Ricky Castro struggled with his control once the rain began to fall harder, but Andrew Churchman struck out six batters in an impressive two and one third innings of scoreless relief to help Neuqua hold on to a 5-2 lead. The game would be called after six innings due to the weather, as Neuqua advances to the sectional championship for the third consecutive season.
