Arstorp; Jeff Smith, back, left John Qua, James Blakeney, Elizabeth Hall, and Jim Hogan.If you have noticed some extra beauty and color in downtown Darien recently, the Beautification Committee is to be thanked. The committee has been arranging for and placing the baskets of cascading flowers for over a decade.On May 24, committee members met at 7:30 a.m. at the Goodwives Shopping Center to accept delivery of 184 flowering baskets which were hung throughout downtown Darien and along the Post Road from the area near Starbucks to Noroton. The Department of Public Works crew joins the committee each year to help hang them. The committee has used the same Long Island nursery for many years, have experimented over the years with the flower and color choice. Suzanne Schutte, commission chairman said “We believe we have come up with the perfect, long living, and beautiful arrangement. Each basket is comprised of a selection of pink, purple, blue and white petunias (traditional New England colors), and is housed in a moss lined basket to retain water.” Each basket weighs approximately 10 pounds (dry/not watered), so it’s both a challenge and great workout to get them all hung, she said.The commission always has them delivered and hung right bef...

Michigan State CB target Emmanuel Flowers shares hopes for official visit; Spartans stay active in Atlanta area
National Signing Day on Feb. 1.
For now, until he gets on campus, Flowers stays in touch with Michigan State linebacker commit Darien Clemons as well as Barnett, who continues to share his pitch.
“He’s been telling me that they’re a family, and I know that’s been getting me more interested,” Flowers said of Barnett. “And he’s been telling me that I can go both ways eventually. If I get comfortable playing there as a DB, I can actually play some receiver, too.”
New offer extended
Just because the Michigan State coaches stayed busy over the weekend hosting official visitors it didn’t keep them from working the phones.
On Sunday, 4-star Stockbridge (Ga.) defensive end Brenton Cox announced a Michigan State offer. It added to a list that includes Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Nebraska and Tennessee.

Simbang Gabi heralds Christmas in Philippine tradition
Masses will be said nightly at two West suburban churches. The Masses are set for 7 p.m. Wednesday at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church in Darien and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at St. Mary Immaculate Church in Plainfield.
Several Catholic churches grouped in two clusters within the Joliet Diocese will take turns hosting each evening's Mass. The novena takes its name -- Simbang Gabi -- from the Philippine native language, Tagalog.
"It means 'Night Mass,'" said Ditas Alzona, organizer of the special service at Christ the King Catholic Church in Lombard, which will host Simbang Gabi for the eastern cluster on Thursday, Dec. 15. Many people go to Mass on each of the nine nights to complete the novena, she said.
"It's in preparation for Christmas Day, in preparation for the coming of the Lord," she said.
Alzona said the Mass, which includes a children's procession, music and special readings, is similar to those observed in the islands.
"The only difference is the time. Normally, in the Philippines, Simbang Gabi is celebrated at 4 o'clock in the morning because the people are fishermen or farmers," she said. "We have to adjust to the time."
Masses in the diocese are scheduled for as early as 4:30 p.m. and as late as 7:30 p.m.
Lourdes Chew is on the Simbang Gabi committee at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Naperville. St. Thomas is hosting Simbang Gabi Mass at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17.
"Most Filipinos who have moved here and are Americans now have experienced this as a child. For most of us, we grew up with this tradition," she said. "We're very excited the diocese supports us."
