The Cop and The Convict:
And last night the police department along with KidsMatter hosted “The Cop and The Convict,” a 90-minute program focusing on talking with teens about drug use and opioid addiction. Naperville Police Detective Rich Wistocki and former addict and ex-convict Tim Ryan spoke at the Municipal Center about both sides of the addiction story, offering tips to parents about how to identify drug use and where to go for help.
Wolves at Library:
Also last night, Chicago Wolves Right Wing Tyler Wong stopped by the 95th Street Library as part of the Wolves’ “Read to Succeed” program. Tyler talked about what books meant to him growing up and why he, as a professional athlete, continues to read. After talking about books, he did some Q&A, signed autographs and took photos. One little girl even got to try on some professional hockey gear. And whether they got Chicago Wolves pencil cases, hats, or tickets to a game, everybody went home with a prize.
In a season full of accolades for his play, North Central College offensive lineman Joe Fehrle added one more this week. The senior tackle was named a First Team All-American by the Division III coaches. The Cardinals offense averaged over 37 points per game this season as Fehrle helped open holes for the CCIW player of the year Austin Breunig while keeping the pocket clean for quarterback Broc Rutter. Fehrle is the first All American first team selection from NCC since his former offensive line-mate, Erik Knaperek in 2015.
