Fashion or comfort? When it comes to shoes, there seems to be two types of women: those who love to wear fashionable high heels and those who prefer their comfortable flats. But how do men respond to women in high heels?  For the first time ever, researchers answer this question in a recent study, published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.

Woman wearing blue and white spotty high heels

“Women’s heel size exerts a powerful effect on men’s behavior,” said the study’s author, Nicolas Gueguen, a behavioral science researcher, in the report.

The findings show that men’s helpfulness increased along with the height of the heels a woman was wearing. Women were different though. On the contrary, heel height had no influence on other women’s willingness to help.

Whether shoes are sexy or not, Dr. Dave Charnota, a podiatrist at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, warns that safety and comfort should come first when choosing shoes for the day. High heels can also be dangerous, he adds.

“The change in gait and unnatural position of the foot in the shoes can provide instability in the ankle and mid-foot regions, leading to injuries such as sprains, strains and fractures,” says Dr. Charnota. He recommends that women choose their shoes for the day based on how much walking they will do.”

Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, Illinois is a 169-bed acute care hospital with more than 700 physicians representing 50 medical specialties. It is part of Advocate Health Care, named one of the Top Ten hospital systems in the U.S. by Thomson-Reuters. Advocate is a faith-based organization that exists to serve its communities.

Post - Barrington Area United Way Power of the Purse - 2015

Ladies will take home beautiful purses during Thursday’s event as they step up to support the cause.  All funds raised will benefit local programs and one of these four Barrington area initiatives will receive this year’s $5,000 Power of the Purse grant:

The Clothesline Project

Agency Name: Northwest Center Against Sexual Assault (Northwest CASA)

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2011) nearly 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men reported experiencing rape at some time in their lives and 29.9% of female rape victims surveyed were first raped between the ages of 11 – 17 years of age.  The Clothesline Project is an international program developed in 1990 by a small group of women survivors in Massachusetts and is designed to educate, break the silence and bear witness to the issue of violence against women. Victims of sexual violence or significant others of victims can create their own t-shirt and add to the program’s collection of over 1,000 shirts.  These presentations sometimes result in victim disclosures and Northwest CASA is prepared to provide crisis intervention to victims in the audience and facilitate their obtaining free counseling services, if they choose.

In 2014/15, the Clothesline Project served 524 students at Barrington High School.  It is projected that approximately 800 area students will be served in the next fiscal year.  There is no cost to participants or school systems.

If awarded, the Power of the Purse grant will be used to support the educator’s program staff time, pre and post-test evaluations and staff conferencing with high school teachers to review results.  For more information, visit ClotheslineProject.org.

Post - Barrington Area United Way - The Clothesline Project

Finding Your Voice Through Movement for Adolescent Girls:  A Life Skills Development Program

Agency Name:  Barrington Youth & Family Services

The Finding Your Voice Through Movement program addresses the issues of feminine identity, empowerment, developmental transitions, academic success, healthy relationships, depression, anxiety, bullying and low self-worth.  This is a new program that will be offered in the Spring/Summer of 2015.  The program provides an alternative method to one-on-one therapy using the dance/movement therapy modality of Marian Chace, one of the founders of modern dance therapy (1896-1970).

Post - Marian Chace

Marian Chace

Finding your Voice Through Movement for Adolescent Girls is open to any girl within the Barrington 220 boundaries between the ages of 12 and 17.  The program will provide 24 structured sessions and is available for up to 40 participants. Clients will experience an increase in self-esteem, communication and feelings.  “The young women that will participate will learn a greater sense of their bodies’ movement and appreciate their strengths in being female.”

Power of the Purse grant funds would be used to fund the program facilitator, Executive Director supervisor and specific program materials necessary to implement this program.

We are ONE IN TWELVE

Agency Name: fitMS NeuroBalance Center

Autoimmune diseases are the third most common category of disease in the United States after cancer and cardiovascular disease and 78% of those affected are women.  These conditions are not curable and are progressive, disabling and isolating diseases that impact every aspect of physical and emotional health.  We are the ONE IN TWELVE provides education, healthcare, support and community, under one roof, to women living with autoimmune conditions including but not limited to type 1 diabetes, MS, Hashimoto’s, Graves, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Myasthenia Gravis, Vasculitis, Celiac, Scleroderma, Vitiligo, Alopecia and IBD/IBS.  The program offers education, disease management consultations and services, yoga and Zumba fitness programs adapted for safety and accessibility.  fitMS services are provided on a sliding scale with no one denied services due to an inability to pay.

Post - fitMS Neurobalance Center

In 2014, the We are the ONE IN TWELVE program serviced approximately 300 clients.  About half of these of these clients resided within the Barrington 220 boundaries. The total number of estimated clients for the next fiscal year is 420 with 252 clients from within the District 220 boundaries.

If awarded, the Power of the Purse Grant would be used to fund the fitMS Group Fitness Program, educational programs and subsidy for those clients unable to pay for services.

Junior Explorer Post 21

Agency Name:  Junior Explorers Post 21, Boy Scouts of America

After several interviews with girls and parents, it became clear that many girls in the Barrington area wanted a unique and challenging experience not found in the current programs offered by organizations within the community.  This identified need led to the development of a bold new program filled with outdoor adventures as well as the opportunity to learn new skills that would benefit young girls as they mature.  Partnering with The Boy Scouts of America, the Junior Explorers Program is open to all girls of middle school age, regardless of social economic or demographic backgrounds.  The program offers young girls in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades a new opportunity to develop valuable life skills including self-confidence, creativity, service, friendship, first aid, emergency preparedness, personal fitness, personal management, creativity and citizenship.

The Power of the Purse grant would be used to provide scholarships and specific equipment used in the program activities.

From youth services to senior services, from job search assistance to activities for the developmentally disabled, the Barrington Area United Way funds over $200,000 a year in grants to support programs offered by local agencies meeting basic needs in these areas:

  • Education – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
  • Income – Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
  • Health – Improving People’s Health

For this week’s Menu Monday feature, we’re joining Egg Harbor Cafe in celebrating Dr. Seuss’ 111th birthday. One hundred and eleven years ago today, beloved children’s author and illustrator Theodor Seuss Geisel (a.k.a. “Dr. Seuss”) was born.  Did you know that you can order a dish in honor of Dr. Seuss any day in Barrington?  That’s right, Green Eggs and Ham, inspired by Dr. Seuss’ book by that name, can be found on Egg Harbor’s kids’ menu throughout the year.

Post - Dr. Seuss USA Stamp

Here’s how Egg Harbor describes this colorful dish:

Green Eggs and Ham
Freshly diced ham scrambled into two green eggs served with potatoes and half an English muffin (they really are green) $4.29

All of the kids’ menu meals at Egg Harbor also come with a children’s beverage of your choice.

It may be Dr. Seuss’ birthday today, but Egg Harbor’s Director of Marketing and Communications, Wendy Mospan says Green Eggs & Ham is one of their most popular kids’ menu items year-round.

“It’s just a really fun menu choice for kids because it reminds them of an all-time favorite story and they keep ordering Green Eggs and Ham because it tastes great.”

Post - Green Eggs and Ham
As far as Egg Harbor’s kids’ menu is concerned, Wendy says they really work hard to reach out and serve the families in our community.

“We’re always keeping our kids’ menu updated with a variety of perennial favorites and we love to try new things, too.  Plus, the kids’ menu itself features games and an egg drawing contest and we have crayons on every table so children can color and have fun while they’re waiting for their meal.”

Post - Egg Harbor Cafe

Barrington High School 2014 graduate and co-founder of the Hope’s in Style Guatemala outreach initiative, Courtney Quigley has launched a new video blog from her college dorm room highlighting the mission behind next weekend’s third annual Hope’s in Style fashion show. Courtney recently introduced Episode 1, with Episode 2 sure to include images from the organization’s BHS student-produced fashion show fundraiser coming up at the Stonegate Banquet & Conference Center on Sunday, March 8th.

Courtney Quigley's Hope's in Style Video Blog - Episode 1

Courtney Quigley’s Hope’s in Style Video Blog – Episode 1

In her first video blog episode, Courtney talks about how a young girl named Monica inspired her to step up and find a way to help those forced to scavenge for trash in Guatemala City’s garbage dump to clothe, feed and shelter their families.

Now a freshman at New York University, Courtney founded Hope’s in Style with her twin sister, Ashley, a freshman at Santa Clara University.  Together, they motivated scores of Barrington High School students to produce the first fashion show fundraiser in February of 2013, with proceeds going to build Monica’s family a new home through Potter’s House Association.

Post - Hope's in Style - 6

The Quigley twins’ Hopes in Style initiative started a movement at Barrington High School that continues to gain momentum, long after the girls’ graduation.

Thanks to their annual fashion show, Hope’s in Style has raised funds and rallied volunteers to travel with the group to Guatemala and build a total of five homes for families in the garbage dump community.  So many people have signed up to help build these homes, this August the Quigley sisters will lead teams in not one, but TWO service trips to Guatemala.

Post - Hope's in Style Team in Guatemala, 2014

The Quigleys are also behind the local Merry Meals project in partnership with Barrington High School’s Interact Club, with volunteers packing meals to be sent to hungry kids around the world.  They’ve also inspired a new Hope’s in Stride program, run my BHS student Matt Coy who is collecting shoes to give to the Guatemalan children who benefit from Hope’s in Style’s outreach.

Post - Hope's in Style - 21

So, without further delay, we’re excited to share Episode 1 from Hope’s in Style’s new video blog narrated by Courtney Quigley herself with a special segment filmed in Guatemala.

If you’d like to support the cause, you can CLICK HERE to contribute at various levels or buy a ticket to next weekend’s fashion show where student models will showcase the work of student designers.  Tickets cost $35 for adults and $25 for students.  Hors D’oeuvres and dessert are included along with a cash bar and raffles.

“This year we would like to invite you to act compassionately once again as we try to bring hope, through houses, to other deserving families of the Guatemala City garbage dump communities,” Courtney says.  “Hope’s in Style’s team of stylists, volunteers, leaders, and models are committed to empowering these families through giving them a dignified place to call home! A new house will give families a door that locks, running water, and four sturdy walls for their children to feel safe within. But to do this, we need you! By attending our event you donate towards our cause and declare that you too believe in hope!”

The third annual Hope’s in Style fashion show will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at The Stonegate Banquet & Conference Center, 2401 West Higgins Road in Hoffman Estates.  For more information, visit HopesInStyle.com.  And, for a look at last year’s fashion show, take a look at our video produced by reporter James Owen of 365Barrington TV.

His visit to Barrington for a USS Illinois Commissioning Committee fundraiser at Wickstrom Auto Group earlier this month raised over $20,000 to support the Navy submarine’s commissioning, its crew and their families.

Captain Porter will be back next week for a luncheon at Chicago’s Union League Club to recognize Christopher Durdle, the Monmouth Roseville High School senior who recently won the ship’s crest art contest out of 149 students who submitted designs from around Illinois.

Post - USS Illinois SSN 786 Crest Art ContestWhen he was in Barrington for a February 5th Wickstrom Auto Group event hosted by three local volunteers on the USS Illinois Commissioning Committe, 365Barrington.com reporter James Owen interviewed Captain Porter on camera to learn more about the submarine, its crew and what life will be like on board the USS Illinois.

The USS Illinois (SSN-786) is the 13th Virginia Class nuclear submarine and is currently under construction at Electric Boat shipyard in Groton, Ct. She is only the second U.S. Navy ship to be commissioned with the name “USS Illinois” since a battleship with that name was commissioned in 1897. It is expected to be launched in mid-2015 and commissioned in December 2015.

After the submarine’s commissioning, the USS Illinois (SSN 786) will gather intelligence, deploy special forces and attack land targets. Called the most technologically sophisticated ship under the seas, the Virginia Class submarine will be equipped to combat rapidly emerging 21st Century threats with “massive firepower, cutting edge intelligence capabilities and and a revolutionary deck design,”according to USSIllinois.org.  The submarine is under construction now to be launched in mid-2015 and commissioned in December of this year.  To learn more, visit USSIllinois.org.

Your chills will be multiplying during Barrington High School’s upcoming performances of this year’s musical, GREASE!  Come see your favorite childhood songs brought to life on stage by BHS Fine Arts Department performers, from “Summer Nights” to “Greased Lightning” to “You’re the One That I Want” and more!

Post - BHS Fine Arts Presents GREASE

The iconic show features Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical.

Post - BHS Presents GREASE - 3

Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through the show. Watch the classic struggles of fitting in and being the new kid, as well as the struggle to find your one true love.
