‘Shrek the Musical’ enchants audiences with songs

Amanda Del Buono

Freelance Reporter

Community members

were invited to a fantasy

world full of fairy-tale characters,

princesses and dragons

this past weekend, as the

Village of Orland Park Theatre

Troupe put on a threeday

performance of “Shrek

the Musical.”

The performance took place

at Carl Sandburg’s Performing

Arts Center in Orland Park

Friday through Sunday, June

17-19. The troupe is based

out of the Village’s Parks and

Recreations Department.

Producer and director Frances

Carnivele said every year,

the group produces several

performances, and roughly 50

volunteers – starting as young

as 5 years old – bring it all together.

“Even the accents that Shrek has

– and Donkey – is just like Eddie

Murphy. You can almost close

your eyes and pretend you’re

listening to the movie.”

Mary Tuminello — musical attendee, on the Village

of Orland Park Theatre Troupe’s take on “Shrek

the Musical”

Carnivele said she always

chooses family-friendly

shows, and after seeing another

group perform “Shrek

the Musical,” she wanted to

try it as well.

“Shrek the Musical” is

the play adaptation of the

DreamWorks animated film

“Shrek,” and the plot still

centers on the green ogre

and his adventures in an enchanted

world.

“I [chose] ‘Shrek’ because

it’s so fun and appropriate

for both children and adult

audiences,” Carnivele said.

“The kids love it, and there’s

The Village of Orland Park Theatre Troupe practices a scene of “Shrek the Musical” at a

dress rehearsal Thursday, June 16, at Sandburg. Laurie Fanelli/22nd Century Media

some comedy in there for

parents that [the kids] hopefully

didn’t pick up on.”

Although the troupe is

known to recreate fairytales

in the past, Carnivele noted

this particular show is the

most animated fantasy story

they have ever done.

“Because it’s so animated

and a hyped-up story that

kids all know, we had to do it

a little differently,” she added.

“We’ve done ‘The Wizard

of Oz’ and ‘Peter Pan,’

but that’s still real people.”

Attendees on Friday

evening only said positive

remarks about the performance.

Orland D135 Board of Education

D135 School Board ends school year strong

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

The Orland School District

135 Board of Education

received an end-of-year

report Monday, June 13, on

how students performed on a

series of assessments.

Assistant Director of Curriculum

Brian Fogarty shared

the data during the School

Board meeting, starting with

MAP results (see sidebar).

“[MAP] is a formative assessment

that we use multiple

times a year to identify

what our students are ready

to learn,” Fogarty said. “In

the fall every year, when our

students first take that assessment,

every student is given

a projected growth based

on their starting point. It depends

on what grade they are

in, and it depends on what

their initial score is. When

we are projecting out to the

spring, what we would like

to see and what is expected –

and what is average – is for

50 percent of our students to

meet that targeted growth.”

Fogarty said “a great number

of students” met their

projected growth, particularly

in first and second grade.

“In first-grade math, we

have almost 83 percent of our

students meeting their projected

growth,” he said. “That

is phenomenal. That is a very

high percentage of students.”

The overall results, districtwide,

also was impressive.

“To have 156 students enter our

reading intervention and then

come out of it at some point

during the year is a great success.”

Brian Fogarty — assistant director of curriculum,

on students’ performances

“This year, 59 percent of

our students in the district

met their expected growth in

[reading],” he said. “Keep in

mind, 50 percent is the expectation,

so anything above

that shows that our Tier 1

instruction is meeting the

vast majority of our needs.

In comparison to the years

2012-2014, where that average

was 53.3, [this year’s average]

is a very good number.

“Looking at the math column,

we had 61 percent of

our students meet their targeted

growth, in comparison

to the 46.6 that was the previous

years.”

Fogarty also mentioned

stats from the reading and

math intervention programs.

He said a total of 401 out of

4,043 D135 students, or 10

percent, received reading intervention.

A total of 156 of

those students, or 39 percent,

exited the program by the

end of the school year.

“Last year [in 2014-2015],

we had 13 percent of our

met their projected growth on the MAP test.

students needing a reading

intervention,” he said.

He also said the numbers

of students exiting the program

were encouraging, because

it used to be different.

“When so many started receiving

reading intervention,

they were lifers,” he said.

“When it was not through

the RTI process, if you were

in, you were going to continue

to get it. Now, we get students

in, give them the reading

intervention that they

need, and if it is successful,

we get them out and back

into our Tier 1 instruction.

“To have 156 students enter

our reading intervention

and then come out of it at

some point during the year is

a great success.”

A total of 352 students, or

9 percent, received math intervention,

with 160 – or 45

percent – exiting by the end

of the year.

Assistant Superintendent

for Teaching and Learning

Lynn Zeder said the Englishlanguage

learning population

in D135 continues to grow. A

total of 284 students received

services in 2014-2015, while

this year, the number went up

to 452. A total of 85 students,

or 19 percent, exited the program

this year.

New year, new admins

The School Board approved

two administrative hires

in separate 7-0 votes. The

first brought on Courtney

Milligan to Liberty School

as assistant principal at an

annual salary of $77,029.

“I’m very excited to join

Orland 135,” Milligan said

after the vote. “I come from

a Chicago Public Schools

background, and I’m just

elated to begin my journey

with you guys.”

The second vote approved

the hire of Dana Karczewski

as principal of Meadow

Ridge School at an annual

salary of $112,463.

“I began my teaching career

in Lockport, just down

the road from here,” she

said. “I moved to a Plainfield

school district, where I’ve

been an administrator for the

past four years at Liberty Elementary.

I’m very excited

to come to Meadow Ridge

and District 135. Thank you

for welcoming me.”

Both contract dates were

scheduled to begin July 1.

Comments focus on safety,

Stutz’s departure

During board member

comments, Michael Maratea

complimented fellow board

member Gregory Okon on

a safety meeting of which

the latter board member was

chairman.

“It was one of the most efficient

meetings I have ever been

a part of,” Maratea said. “I’d

like to let the parents know, our

community is in great hands.

Our children’s safety is in great

hands with the people we have

working in this district and this

community.”

Okon said the district

made a commitment years

ago to safety and to be more

“proactive and hands-on.”

“Bringing in former deputy

chief of police Jerry

Hughes, of the Orland Park

Police Department, really

made a world of difference,”

Okon said. “Our most precious

commodity is our

students. I’m a former police

commander, and I think

when you hear about what

happened down in Florida,

you just realize that it’s just

not a very nice world we live

in. We have to band together

and do what we need to do to

keep our students, staff and

everyone who comes into

our schools safe.”

Also during comments,

Board President Laura Berry

thanked outgoing Superintendent

Janet Stutz on her

years of service to D135.

“We couldn’t have gotten

to where we are without her

leadership and guidance,”

Berry said. “We wish you

well.”

Sherk

From Page 3

“I think it’s really good,”

said Kim Mazeika, who attended

with her family and

friend, Mary Tuminello. “I’ve

never seen the musical before,

but the dragon was amazing…and

Fiona was amazing.

They’re all so talented.”

Tuminello said that she

was impressed with the performance,

especially the actors’

portrayals of the original

film’s characters.

“Their voices are very

much like the movie,” she

said. “Even the accents that

Shrek has – and Donkey – is

just like Eddie Murphy. You

can almost close your eyes

and pretend you’re listening

to the movie.

“I work in community theater,

and you can tell a good

play from a bad one, and

this one is good. … The set

changes are smooth … and

the sets are simple, but you

get the picture.”

Carnivele said that the

performers “drove” themselves

– practiced, studied

and embodied their roles –

so the film’s characters could

shine through their musical.

“They really brought it

themselves,” she said. “I

couldn’t be happier with the

principal characters; they really

brought it to life. I’m

happy everyone seems to be

having a great time, and that’s

what’s most important.”

Michael Carioto played

Donkey, Shrek’s right-hand

companion. Carioto said this

was his second opportunity to

play the part, and he watched

the movie over and over to

perfect actor Eddie Murphy’s

portrayal. He shared being

suited up in the costume

helped inspire him as well.

“The script really lends

itself to Eddie Murphy’s

voice,” he said. “It’s written

with an accent. [Frances]

was so great letting me know

when I was going too far or

not far enough.”

To add, Christina Pacini

played the ogre’s love interest

Fiona. She said the connection

among performers

made it easier to bring the

characters to life.

“Something special with

this performance is the relationship

between the cast

members,” she said. “It

makes it so much easier to

dive into the characters.”

According to Carnivele, the

Orland Park Theatre Troupe is

to return to their specialty and

take on a classic, “Beauty and

the Beast,” next fall.

OP pharmacist remembered for giving care

Jason Maholy

Freelance Reporter

Whether telling a joke, allowing

someone else to beat

him at poker, or providing

free medicine to a sick child,

Al Kosnar lived his life extending

kindness and good

vibes to the people whose

paths he crossed.

Al, a dedicated family

man, beloved friend of

many, and owner of the first

independent pharmacy in

Orland Park, died March 9

in Raleigh, N.C., after struggling

with health problems

the last two years of his life.

He was 80.

He was born in 1935 and

grew up on Chicago’s South

Side with parents who immigrated

to the United

States from what is today the

Czech Republic. The family

lived above the bakery they

owned on Talman Avenue,

and when Al was just a boy

he would help out at the family

business, according to his

oldest son, Matt Kosnar.

Always on call

Al moved to Orland Park

in 1959 after graduating

from Purdue University, and

opened the first independent

pharmacy in what was then

a sparsely populated rural

town where the greatest traffic

hazard might have been a

cow that had wandered into

the road, Matt joked.

The pharmacy would become

a huge part of Al’s life

– he would frequently spend

12 to 14 hours a day there –

and after his wife Ramona

and three sons was the love

of his life.

“He was a pharmacist,

and that was it, and he was

good at that,” Matt said.

“Everything else, whether

he was good at it or not, he

didn’t care. As long as he

was a good pharmacist and

took care of the people in the

town he was happy.”

Al picked Orland Park as

the site for his store because

the tiny village was beginning

to grow and there were

no local pharmacies. The

drug store’s original location

was in Old Orland, but after

a few years in business he

moved the operation a few

blocks east to Orland Plaza, a

shiny new shopping center at

the northwest corner of 143rd

Street and LaGrange Road.

“At the time that would

have been like the cutting

edge shopping center,” Matt

said of Orland Plaza, which

was razed several years ago to

clear the way for a mammoth

housing and retail development.

“Today we have massive

indoor malls, but back

then [relocating at the plaza]

was like a big move, it was

considered very impressive.”

A year or so later, Al

and his sister Lillian and

brother-in -law John Hofferica

opened a liquor store in

Orland Plaza. The drug store

closed in the 1990s after succumbing

to the competition

from corporate pharmacies,

but the liquor store remained

until the shopping center’s

demise. Al and a group of

local businessmen friends

were among the most well

-known and respected men

in town, and whether he was

at work, at church or just

walking around, he knew almost

everyone by their first

names. His work as the community’s

pharmacist brought

him into contact with many

people, and he made many

friends.

The profession was perfect

for a man who was friendly,

gregarious and generous.

“He loved being a pharmacist,

and he was good at

it,” Matt said. “He liked the

drug side, but he loved the

people side – to him that

was the important part. The

business side, that part to

him, it was ‘if it goes well it

goes well.’ He really didn’t

care about the money.”

But he did care about people.

Kosnar Drug’s phone

line was wired to the family’s

home about five miles

away in what was then unincorporated

Homer Township,

and customers in need

of medicine for themselves

or a sick child would sometimes

call in the middle of

the night.

“He would get called at

2 in the morning, he would

get up and drive in at all

hours and get people stuff,”

Matt recalled. “And if they

couldn’t pay he’d just give

it to them. He made money,

but a big chunk of profits he

would share with people who

couldn’t afford the medicine

they needed. He knew if they

could or couldn’t pay, and

if they couldn’t they’d get

it anyway. He took a lot of

pride in that.”

Al had no hobbies, despite

his sons practically trying to

force leisure activities onto

him. He enjoyed the occasional

round of golf and

game of poker, but his “hobby”

was working as a pharmacist,

Matt said. He spent

so much time at the store

that Ramona and the boys

would visit him there, just

so they’d get to spend some

time with him.

“If you wanted to see dad

during the day, you went

to the store, because he

wouldn’t get home until 10,

10:30 at night,” Matt said.

“We’d get off of school, go

home, and mom would say

‘let’s go see dad.’ It was

a real family event, and

we were there so often the

store felt like an extension

of the home. It took a five -

mile drive to get there, but

it seemed like going into the

basement or some other part

of the house.”

A dose of laughter

As Al’s business succeeded

and grew – he opened a

able to work less and spend

more time with his family,

to which he was always devoted

even during his busy

days.

One of Matt’s fondest

memories is his father’s

Having ‘Fun in the Park’

Children come in contact with reptiles at Mallard Landings Park

Children take a closer look at a tortoise during the event.

tell us about his day, and it

was a very nice time, very

calming,” Matt said. “If

anybody was mad at each

other it went away. It was

just very calming and very

stable – no anger could get

past cocktail hour.”

The daily ritual had such

an impact on Matt that he

has adopted the same tradition

at his home. Matt

also recalled the times

his dad would show up at

Boy Scout camping outings.

After working all day,

Al would arrive after the

boys had gone to sleep, but

would awaken his sons by

nuzzling his scratchy beard

against their faces.

Then he would engage in

some late night poker with

the other men in the group.

Al was a decent poker player,

but by the end of the

night would usually be out

a few bucks because he let

someone else have the honor

of winning.

Al was also a great storyteller

who always had

something interesting to

share about his day at the

pharmacy, and he enjoyed

telling jokes – or trying to.

His attempts at joke- telling

often resulted in people

laughing at him rather than

with him, but all in good

fun, of course.

“He couldn’t get them

right half the time, or he’d

start laughing before he got

to the punch line and he’d

admit he couldn’t remember

the joke,” Matt said.

“We would tease him about

it, because he’s tell us it was

a good joke then not be able

to remember how to tell it.”

Al’s fun -loving spirit remained

even after his health

started to fail a couple years

ago. Despite being in obvious

pain, and knowing his

life was each day closer to

coming to an end, he never

complained or expressed

self pity, Matt said.

“He was happy he had a

good, long run,” he continued.

“He was still always

happy and smiling, remembering

the good times. A

week before he died, he was

saying how everything’s

great, everything’s fine. He

said ‘I’m ready to go.’ He

didn’t want you to be upset

he was dying.”

A memorial service for Al

Kosnar will be held at 3 p.m.

Friday, June 24 at Christ

Lutheran Church, 14700 S.

94th Ave. in Orland Park.

Al was preceded in death

by his wife, Ramona. He is

survived by his sons, Matt,

Paul and Doug.

Hilton’s ear

The effecTs of

TinniTus are real

Because tinnitus is subjective,

it affects people in different

ways. For some, it’s

a minor annoyance, one

they can deal with easily.

For others, it can result in

more serious issues, such as:

• Long term sleep disruption

• Changes in cognitive ability

• An inability to concentrate

• Stress in relationships

• Anxiety and depression

• Employment challenges

Sadly, there is no known

cure. No surgery or pill has

been shown to get rid of tinnitus

in any clinically accepted

study.

According to the American

Tinnitus Association, there

are ways to get relief, including

counseling and sound

therapy.

They recommend that anyone

with tinnitus should

see a hearing healthcare

professional or ear, nose,

and throat specialist (ENT)

experienced in tinnitus treatment.

Hearing aids can be an

effective part of any sound

therapy.

Relay for Life of Frankfort/

Mokena brings families

together

Cancer survivors, caretakers

and members of the community

came together June

10 at Lincoln-Way East High

School’s football field for the

Relay for Life of Frankfort/

Mokena.

As of Friday, June 17, the

event organizers raised more

than $115,000 for the American

Cancer Society. The event

included a survivors’ lap and

a caregivers’ lap around the

football field, during which

eventgoers cheered on the participants.

“I love the commitment and

enthusiasm of the relayers,”

said Maria Scalise Hohman,

event co-chairwoman.

Scalise Hohman has volunteered

for the event for the past

16 years. She lost her two best

friends to cancer in 2006 and

2007, and her sister, Christina

Morrissey, is a five-year survivor

of breast cancer.

Scalise Hohman’s daughter,

Marissa, 20, has also attended

the event each time her mother

has gone.

“Seeing someone having

such passion and working for a

cause is really inspiring,” Marissa

said. “It makes you want

to make a change, too.”

My Joyful Heart’s Junior Board

of Directors fills truck for

needy children

At the beginning of the year,

Diane Carroll, founder of My

Joyful Heart, decided to bring

together a group of children to

raise awareness for less fortunate

children in the community.

Thus the Junior Board of

Directors was created. This

six-member group of children,

from seventh grade and up,

has already completed a food

drive, but for the past several

days, they have been hard at

work collecting items for their

first donation drive, called

Fill a Truck for Local Kids in

Need.

Collections were completed

Monday, June 20, and the Junior

Board members found

themselves with an overflow

of donations from neighborhoods

all around the area.

“I’m thrilled with our Junior

Board,” Carroll said. “They’re

doing a fabulous job for the

kids in My Joyful Heart.”

On June 14, Orland Park firefighters Russ

Ricobene and Brian Myhre were appointed

to engineer by Orland Park Fire Commissioner

Craig Schmidt. A Facebook status

described how difficult, how stressful and

how challenging the job may be, but also

how important for the community: “Whether

driving an ambulance, an engine, or a fire

truck, the engineer handles a multitude of

tasks on a daily basis such as: knowing the

still districts and those next to you to which

you respond, and the best and quickest

response routes while driving safely and

delivering the crew to the scene in a timely

manner; daily inspection of their rig and its

tools and equipment...Congratulations Russ

School’s out for summer!

(Cue in Alice

Cooper’s voice, and

please sing with attitude. I

know you’ve got some in

you!)

It’s no secret the longawaited

vacation is a necessary

break for students and

teachers, as it allows them

all time to step away from

daily routines, homework,

lesson plans and respective

classrooms.

However, as you may have

read on Page 4 and in our

most recent issues, Consolidated

High School District

230 and Orland School

District 135 leaders have

continued to meet, reflect,

talk, plan and prepare for

2016-2017.

While most end-of-theyear

meetings tend to focus

on housekeeping items and

routine checkups, others

are set with new agendas.

For example, Lincoln-Way

North and East High School

students and administration

gathered at The Bridge Teen

Center, so that they could

have the opportunity to

learn more about each other,

especially as their schools are

slated to merge by the fall.

For those students, that

meeting was the first of many

that would help them adjust

to changes, forge a new path

(for incoming freshmen and

upperclassmen) as well as offer

a way to create new ideas

for upcoming open houses

and freshmen orientation

days.

D135 officials and staff,

on the other hand, plan to use

the summertime to assign

construction projects to their

respective campuses. D230

leaders kicked off their summer

Snapback, huh?

Jackie OBoyle

Orland Park Resident

After a snapback

reference in this past

week’s trend report

on the dad hat, here’s some

clarity.

What the heck is a snapback?

An ongoing trend

amongst the local young

fellas and many in the Hollywood

scene, they look like

oversized baseball caps too

large for the head.

And there’s a song about

them, too.

“My eyes baby they’re

fixed on you in your snapback.”

What?

Snapback defined: A flatbilled,

adjustable cap (usually

worn with baggy cargo

shorts slung low, exposing

the boxers underneath), so

says the Urban Dictionary.

Rappers often don these

large-billed, inflexible caps,

often worn off-center on the

head.

I find them annoying, and

I am happy to say they are

not a super-trend in Orland

Park. A few here and there,

and it seems those owning

them in and around town

find more pleasure in buying

them and showcasing

them on the hat rack over

actually wearing them. (My

sons included!

Do not ask me why. I do

not know, and I cannot quite

figure out what is fashionable

about them.

Snapbacks are one of

those fleeting trends that we

will laugh about in 20 years.

Snapbacks are dumb, in my

opinion, but then again I’m

pretty sure I had a giant spiral

perm back in the 1980s,

so go figure.

is also the day when the

Holy Spirit descended upon

Jesus’ disciples and filled

them with power. Did you

all know that Christians are

given power?

As for the nature of this

power – Jesus tells his

disciples they will be given

power to “be my witnesses.”

“But you will receive

power when the Holy Spirit

comes on you; and you will

be My witnesses in Jerusalem,

and in all Judea and

Samaria, and to the ends of

the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

Really, Jesus? Couldn’t

we get super-strength or

X-ray vision or (at least) the

always-perfect “superhero”

hair? Do we really need divine

power to “be your witnesses”?

Do we really need

divine strength to love one

For all the good our

difficult people to love (at

times) are family. Spouses

quickly fluctuate from being

“best friends” to “worst enemies.”

When children grow

up to be teenagers, parents

need “divine strength and

patience” to love them.

Whether at home or

church, at work or with

friends, let’s remind ourselves

that we are God’s

superheroes. We are given

power to be the witnesses

of divine hospitality and

mercy. We are given power

to love (even our enemies.)

We are given power to extend

as God loves us, let us love

Traveling on the ‘Road’ built on passion

Orland Parkers

kickstart fund,

release indie movie

‘Road to the Well’

Ryan Wallace

Freelance Reporter

Nobody said it would be

easy.

Nearly four years after

completing the screenplay

for his first feature film, Orland

Park native Jon Cvack

was able to see his movie

“Road to the Well” premiere

at the Dances With Films

Festival earlier this month in

Los Angeles.

“There were many, many

hiccups,” Cvack said.

“There isn’t a magic equation

to financing and making

a film. We got our yeses and

our nos, but we kept moving

to the next step. As we got

closer and closer to closing

the gap, that just made us

more passionate to finish it.”

Cvack teamed up with

friend Tim Davis, also from

Orland Park, to make a film

about a two old friends who

find themselves involved in

a murder and subsequent

cover-up that has them running

into some memorable

characters.

The film, which stars Laurence

Fuller, Micah Parker,

Marshall R. Teague and Rosalie

McIntire, is described

by Cvack as something similar

to movies like “Fargo,”

“Fight Club” and “A Simple

Plan.”

Cvack said it was thrilling

to be able share the film at

the legendary TCL Chinese

6 Theatres in Hollywood,

where outside are the hand

and foot prints of film’s

greatest stars.

“It was exciting and it

was very intoxicating,” he

said. “It made those almost

four years worth it. To hear

the reactions and to see the

different interpretations of

the film – and some of them

hit the nail right on the head

with what we wanted to explore

– that was pretty overwhelming.

“We received a ton of positive

feedback and a lot of

people were lending us their

compliments. They could

have just been saying that,

but I felt like they meant it

if they were willing to wait

in line just to say something

to you.”

From the top

Cvack moved to California

soon after finishing college

to begin his quest to

write and direct a motion

picture. He started out working

at Maker Studio, a global

media company that specializes

in short-form video.

He read that most directors

make their first film in

their mid- to late 20s, so the

push was on.

He reached out to his

roommate Davis, who

served as the film’s cinematographer

and producer,

and fellow Maker employee

Nick Mathews to get their

level of interest in his lofty

goal.

With their support, he

started piecing things together.

Mathews had a connection

to a cabin at Lake

Donner, which is near Lake

Tahoe in California. They

looked to offices at Maker

Studios and his own apartment

for other filming locations.

“We wanted to make sure

we had the tools and resources

to make a feature film,”

Cvack said. “We had to use

whatever we had and build a

story out of that.” The three

were fortunate to have some

financial backing at the beginning

from some friends,

but soon learned they need

much, much more.

“All it takes is for one

person to give you an investment

and galvanize you

to go on,” Cvack said. “My

93-year-old grandmother

supported me with a little

bit of money and I invested

my own personal finances,

which you’re not supposed

to do, but I was saving money

to make a film. We tapped

our resources and that’s

when we started the Kickstarter

campaign.”

They were able to raise

enough money through

Kickstarter to continue the

production of the movie, receiving

more than $40,000

Orland Park Chamber of Commerce

aces friendships with annual golf outing

F. Amanda Tugade

Assistant Editor

A cloudy, Thursday morning

didn’t dampen the spirits

of roughly 140 Orland

Park Chamber of Commerce

members who attended the

annual golf outing June 16

at Silver Lake Country Club.

In fact, their bright smiles

Rich

and boisterous laughs complemented

their crisp, colorful

sports polos, freshly

pressed khaki pants and jersey

skirts.

Promptly at 9 a.m., they

climbed into their golf carts

and started up their engines.

Moments later, the carts began

to disappear along narrow

roads, which led them to

the first of many stops on a

manicured, lush green lawn.

Altogether, they were ready

to begin their day of fun and

relaxation.

“It’s just such a relaxed atmosphere,”

said Chamber of

Commerce President Renee

Oswald.“Sometimes, when

you go to the other events,

you always feel like you’re on

your toes. It’s just so relaxed –

even our dress is relaxed.”

from 242 backers.

But that still wasn’t

enough. Eventually, they received

support from Maker

Studios’ investors – which

had just recently been

bought by Disney – to help

cover the financial, legal and

other “unromantic” costs associated

with filmmaking,

Cvack said.

Creating ‘electricity’

Cvack shared the concept

for “Road to the Well” was

planted in him as a teenager.

“There were two ways

to tell the story,” he said.

“One is a reality where it’s

autobiographical in a sense,

and the second is to use elements

of your life and put

them in a more fantastical

setting. That’s what I wanted

to do. Take elements that

mean so much to me and

see the lengths you could

go to.”

Ten years ago, he had

written something similar

to the plot of “Road to the

Well,” which involved a

hitchhiker and a passerby.

“That element was still

present, and it was something

I wanted to explore

and combine with interesting

characters and interesting

situations,” he said.

Once the screenplay was

written, Cvack submitted it

into some competitions. His

work made it to the second

round of the Austin Film

Festival.

“That showed that it had

some legitimacy, and I used

it as filtration process,”

Cvack said. “Screenplays

can be difficult to read because

you don’t want to be

overly descriptive like a

novel, but you still want to

be engaging.”

He relied on a writing

workshop, which helped

fine tune some of the

screenplay’s elements, provide

clarity to the narrative

and clean up unnecessary

dialogue.

It would take another four

years to shoot, produce and

edit the film into its current

state. The process was long,

but Cvack and his crew

knew what they were in for.

“Someone said you better

love what you’re working

on because you’re going to

be stuck to it twice as long

as you expect to,” he said.

“Having people like Tim

Davis and Nick Mathews

to bounce things off and my

girlfriend – who I told on

my first date I was making a

movie and who was always

behind me – really helped.

“Everyone who was a part

of the film I wish I could

have paid five times more.

People saw something in

the script and being part of a

feature film for the first time

and there was a kind of electricity

that was being built.”

Finally releasing “Road

to the Well” and seeing

it come to life on the big

screen was the perfect ending

to the four-year project.

“It was certainly exhilarating,

kind of like climbing

a mountain with everything

we had to go through during

the process,” he said.

Golf

From Page 22

Chamber of Commerce

chairman Ray Klosowski

and Executive Director

Kerolyn Putnam shared Oswald’s

sentiments. The three

added throughout the years,

the golf outing has brought

area businessmen and women

together, as a way to

meet, talk and get to know

each other.

“It’s a good way of meeting

people, you know, informal

networking,” Klosowski

said. “I think the people that

are out here also enjoy that

part of it.”

“It’s just a fun day to be

outside,” Oswald opined.

Putnam noted the one-day

affair has also become a way

for employers to treat their

respective employees for

their hard work.

The golf outing provided

various ways for attendees

to enter in raffles and win

prizes, including a two-night

stay at Tropicana Resort in

Las Vegas, a pair of tickets

for Miranda Lambert’s

concert July 29, four White

Sox Club Level tickets, gift

cards and wine baskets. Putnam

explained their are four

course games – ball launcher,

cash landing, scattered

flags and cool cash – which

require some skill but rely

on good sportsmanship.

“[For cool cash], they’ve

got coolers with money, and

if you [hit the ball] close to

the coolers, then [you win

the prize inside],” she said.

“[For scattered flags], there

are different flags throughout

the course, and if you get

near certain flags, you win

money. It’s all about [playing]

games and winning

money.

“It’s all about being able

to hit the ball and have it go

where you want it to go.”

The event also included

meals and refreshments

sponsored by the Great

American Bagel; Bonefish

Grill; Crash Champions,

LLC; Four Seasons Heating,

Air Conditioning and

Plumbing; BMO Harris

Bank N.A.; Cygan Hayes

Ltd., CPAs; and The Private-

Bank. To add, over 50 local

businesses sponsored holes

on the golf course to further

advertise.

A portion of the money

raised benefits the Chamber’s

scholarship program,

which awards three high

school seniors with a $1,000

for their college education,

Klosowski, Putnam and Oswald

said.

Dubbed as one of the

Chamber’s biggest fundraisers,

the three noted the event

is just a different way to connect

and build relationships

with others.

The Dish

Next stop: Fresh food and family fun

All Aboard! serves

customers by railway

Amanda Jarzynski

Contributing Editor

When children hear the

toot of the train whistle, they

know that food is on the way.

They dash from their arcade

games to sit by the miniature

train tracks and watch

as their meals are brought

to them in style. A toy train

drives around the tracks to

stop in front of the children

with the items they ordered.

All Aboard! Family Dining

& Amusement in Frankfort

keeps mealtimes exciting

with family-appropriate

games to entertain young

ones while adults can mingle

at the tables. When it’s time

to eat, customers are served

handmade meals cooked

with fresh ingredients.

The restaurant was originally

Choo Choo Johnny’s

until new owners Tony and

Teffini Chiuso bought the

establishment in April 2014.

With the new owners came

a new name and a complete

overhaul of the restaurant,

but they left the most unique

aspect — the train.

“When I took over, we

still had a lot of people coming

here because it’s a train

restaurant, and there are not

a lot around here, but it was

still slow,” Teffini Chiuso

said. “When I started redoing

the place — new paint,

new playroom and new arcade

games — we started to

get a lot busier.”

Chiuso has a history of

waitressing and bartending

in downtown Chicago.

When she met Tony, the

couple wanted to buy a house

together, but instead, they

bought All Aboard!, which

Chiuso said was a big change

after being accustomed to

The Double Stack burger ($12.50), served with lettuce,

tomato, grilled onions and mushrooms, and cheddar

cheese piled on a pretzel bun, is one of the favorites at All

restaurants tailored to adults.

“This is so far from what I

do, but I love it,” Chiuso said.

“I like making people happy

and seeing smiles on kids’ faces.

And I like seeing smiles on

parents’ faces, too. They’ll sit

around and eat and talk while

the kids are playing.”

The architectural changes

were not the only ones made

to the restaurant. Chiuso said

she also changed the menu

items to be fresher and more

handmade. She added that

the good food paired with

the friendly atmosphere is

what makes customers want

to come back for more.

Burgers are one of the

more popular menu items,

Chiuso said. A favorite is

the Double Stack ($12.50),

which is made of two thirdpound,

hand-packed burger

patties, cheddar cheese,

grilled onions and mushrooms,

lettuce, and tomatoes

served between a customer’s

choice of pretzel bun or brioche

bun. All burgers come

with a side of kettle chips,

fries, broccoli, fruit or coleslaw,

and extra ingredients

can be added for an additional

price.

For a treat after dinner,

customers can indulge in one

of the 16 Hershey’s flavors

of ice cream. They can have

just the ice cream or enjoy a

With business booming,

Chiuso said there are

thoughts to expand and open

up another All Aboard!, but

for now, the couple is happy

with the one restaurant.

“The restaurant business is

tough and demanding, but we

love our location, and we are

New Premium Standard Features Announced At

Prairie Trails in Manhattan Adding up to Tremendous Deal

New Homes in Manhattan within the

Lincoln-Way School District from the

mid- $200s

Distinctive Home Builders

is making it easier than

ever to claim a generouslyappointed

and thoughtfully

designed new home in a

great location with the introduction

of new Premium

Standard Features at Prairie

Trails—a community of 100

single-family homes in Manhattan.

“The new home designs

at Prairie Trails now offer

more flexibility and value

to our customers,” said

Bryan Nooner, president of

Distinctive Home Builders.

“They are attractively base

priced from the low $200s,

making it more affordable

than ever to become a

homeowner here. And yet,

the price doesn’t mean you

have to compromise your

expectations or tastes. We’ve

included a lion’s share of

luxury features and in-demand

standard inclusions

at Prairie Trails that all add

up to a tremendous deal on a

brand new residence.”

“You really can have it all.

Most home shoppers realize

there is a trade off from getting

what you need and what

you want in a new home.

With our new premium inclusions

we have closed that

gap significantly by including

additional features that

our buyers told us were most

important to them.

“Prairie Trails has the

premium standard features

that today’s buyers want in

a new home, such as custom

kitchen cabinets with soft

close doors and drawers,

granite kitchen countertops,

ceramic tile or hardwood

floors, and a choice of white

painted or oak trim.”

At Prairie Trails in Manhattan,

buyers can choose

from 12 different home designs;

each available in three

to eight different elevations.

The three and four-bedroom

ery home we sell no matter

what the price range,” noted

Nooner.

Nooner added that all

homes are highly energy efficient.

Every home built will

have upgraded wall and ceiling

insulation values with

energy efficient windows

and high efficiency furnaces.

Before customers take

possession of their new

home, Distinctive Home

Builders will conduct a

blower door test that pressurizes

the home to ensure

that each home passes a set

of very stringent Energy Efficiency

guidelines.

When you purchase a

Distinctive Home you are

getting a high quality hand

Other premium standard

features included at Prairie

Trails that are not offered

anywhere else in the marketplace

are brick exteriors

on all four sides of the first

floor, concrete driveways,

free basements in most

models, ceramic tile or hardwood

floors in the kitchen,

baths and foyer; and custom

cabinets. Distinctive

kitchen cabinets feature

solid wood construction (no

particle board), have solid

wood drawers with dove tail

joints, which is very rare in

the marketplace.

“When you buy a new

home from Distinctive, you

truly are receiving custom

made cabinets in evcrafted

home. Before closing,

each home undergoes

an industry-leading checklist

that ensures each home

measures up to the firm’s

high quality standards.

Prairie Trails is also a

beautiful place to live featuring

a 20 acre lake on the

site, as well as direct access

to a 22-mile Wauponsee Glacial

Prairie Path trail that

borders the community. The

Metra station is also nearby.

Building homes in the

area is nothing new for

Nooner and his company.

Distinctive has built hundreds

of homes in Manhattan

and thousands in the

Will and south Cook county

area over the past 30 years.

Compiled by Editor Bill Jones,

bill@opprairie.com.

How’d you get started

with playing softball?

I tried every sport when

I was younger, and softball

seemed to be the last one to

try. I played football with my

dad in the backyard, and I

thought that was fun. That’s

how I started playing more

competitive sports after that.

What do you enjoy most

about sports?

I enjoy the action the most

– how anything can happen.

You can’t predict the game.

What’s the most

challenging part about

being a pitcher?

The hardest part for me

is just having to calm myself

down in big situations.

I seem to get better and better

with that over the years

[and] with more experience.

And as a first baseman?

[Playing first base] was

new to me. My coach wanted

to play, and I was nervous

to go. After awhile, I got

used to it.

What’s your personal

motto?

Just to go out on the field

and give my 100 percent

24/7.

Who’s your role model

and why?

My dad because he pushes

me to get better, even though

sometimes, he yells; but it’s

for the good.

What’s an important

lesson you’ve learned

from playing softball?

Just to meet new people

[and] give everybody a

chance. I learned how to

be myself around people in

softball and outside of softball.

I learned how to lead on

and off the field.

If you could be friends

with any famous

celebrity, who would

you choose and why?

I’d pick Justin Timberlake

because I think he’s so

22nd Century Media File Photo

funny. He’s really cute, and I

love his music. I think he’s a

really great person.

If you could be on any

TV show, which show

would you choose and

why?

“Friday Night Lights”

because of the high school

atmosphere, the football

games and it has really good

lessons in it.

What are you most

looking forward to for

college?

Probably just to meet new

people and experience college

softball.

Fotopoulos named girls basketball coach at Sandburg

Randy Whalen

Freelance Reporter

Nick Fotopoulos is a student of

basketball.

Now he’s also the new head girls

basketball coach at Sandburg.

Fotopoulos has been the freshman

boys basketball coach at

Sandburg for the past five seasons.

But when the head girls hoops job

became available, he jumped at

opportunity to get it.

“I’m excited,” he said. “It’s going

to be a challenge and it should

be a good one. We want to get the

most out of our players.”

When Fotopoulos was in high

school at Lincoln-Way East, he

was a basketball player. But he

certainly wasn’t a superstar. Instead

he absorbed all the information

he could on the game. That’s

helped prepare him for his coaching

later in life.

“I’m definitely a student of the

game,” Fotopoulos said. “But I

had great coaches and mentors

help me to get to where I am now.

“[East head boys basketball

coach] Rich Kolimas, [Sandburg

head boys basketball coach] Todd

“I’m definitely a student of the game. ...

But I had great coaches and mentors help

me to get to where I am now.”

Nick Fotopoulos — on his new position as Sandburg head

girls basketball coach

Allen, [Sandburg boys basketball

assistant coach] Randy Voels all

helped me. I also spent a year under

[head boys basketball coach]

John Daniels at Stagg.”

Chris Hellrung was the previous

head girls coach for the Eagles.

He resigned after eight seasons

to spend more time with his family.

He’s happy that Fotopoulos is

stepping into the position.

“When I resigned, I knew there

were a couple of people who were

interested and Nick was one of

them,” Hellrung said. “So I kind

of reached out to him. He did a

good job as our freshman boys

coach. He’s real energetic and really

good with kids. So I thought

he’d be the perfect fit. I think he’s

going to work out real well.”

Under Hellrung, the Eagles recently

had their best season in

years. That was the 2014-2015

campaign when they went 24-8

and won a regional title. They

hoped to contend for another this

past season, but injuries derailed

that and they finished 13-16.

Look for Sandburg to get back

on track this coming season. The

Eagles are certainly happy to have

Fotopoulos to lead the charge.

“Nick has the commitment,

work ethic and passion to continue

to strengthen the girls program

here at Sandburg,” said Sandburg

Athletic Director Mark Krusz in

a press release. “He is committed

to working with the community to

generate even more enthusiasm

for girls basketball in the area.”

Nick Fotopoulos is now the new

head girls basketball coach at

Sandburg. Photo Submitted

Fotopoulos not only has Hellrung

to turn to for advice, he has

a wealth of other former Eagle

girls basketball coaches in the

building. They are Kathy Krueger,

who guided the Eagles to a 27-8

record and a sectional championship

in the 1999-2000 season, and

Christine [Bochnak] Borst, whose

2004-2005 squad tied the school

record for most wins (32) and advanced

to the Class AA state quarterfinals.

“I’ve already [sought] advice from

Kathy and Christine,” Fotopoulos

said. “I haven’t met Gary Bonk

[Eagles girls basketball coach from

1982-1998], but I certainly know

the name. They were very successful

here and we want to get back to that.

“Alyssa [DiBenedetto] was the

varsity girls assistant coach last

year and she is helping me make the

transition. We want to get some of

the alumni back and get more people

to be part of this.”

The Eagles have already hit the

hardwood this summer, participating

in the summer league basketball

league.

“The girls have been working

hard,” said Fotopoulos, who has

also been a freshman baseball

coach at Stagg and Sandburg as

well as an assistant girls track and

field coach at Sandburg. “I’m still

looking to be a lower level coach

in the spring next year, but basketball

is my passion.”

From Page 46

Award Watch List in each of

the last three seasons. An excellent

defensive catcher, he

threw out 58 percent of attempted

basestealers in 2016

(22-for-38).

In the BIG EAST Championship,

he had a career best

5-for-5 night against Creighton

and was named the BIG

EAST Championship Most

Outstanding Player. In three

games at the conference tourney,

he hit .571 (8-for-14) with

four runs scored and six RBI

as Xavier went 3-0. In seven

postseason games this year,

Rizzie hit .483 (14-for-29)

with eight runs scored and

eight RBI.

Sandburg baseball coach

Jim Morsovillo saw first hand

how good of a player Rizzie

was. Morsovillo took over as

Eagles head coach in 2012,

during Rizzie’s senior season.

“Dan was the best catcher

I have coached,” Morsovillo

said. “He always was a hard

working kid who had a great

personality, a great work

ethic and toughness. We have

stayed in touch over the last

four years, while he has been

in college, and we have seen

each other at times during the

summer.

“He had a fabulous collegiate

career and his selection

by the Mets is well deserved.

He was one of the best catchers

in the nation this season.

I’m very proud of his accomplishments

and feel fortunate

to be able to coach such a

great young man. He will have

a great professional career.”

Just the experience of playing

at Sandburg set the table for

Rizzie.

“It helped me a lot,” said

Rizzie of his time at Sandburg.

“There were a lot of

good players in the area and

it helped me to get used to the

competition.”

Rizzie grew up a fan of one

of the Mets old rivals.

“I grew up as a Cardinals

fan,” Rizzie said. “My dad

[Jeff] is a Cardinal fan and has

a lot of family from there.”

But now Rizzie is very

happy to be part of the Mets

family. He looks forward to

this short Class A season and

continuing to get better.

“I’m just looking forward

to refining my skills and being

the best I can be,” Rizzie

said. “We have a lot of good

coaches [in the Mets organization],

who will help me with

my skills.”

students from Andrew,

Lincoln Way-East and

Central, Lockport, Mantano,

Marist, Mother McAuley,

Providence, Shepard

and Thornwood.

There, Abby reunited with

Rattlers head coach Brit Volini.

The two had met and

interacted briefly when Abby

was just a beginner.

“I really haven’t seen

her in a few years,” Volini

said. “But I heard her name

through the grape vine [as

she began to play for other

teams]. I was very surprised

[to have her on the

Rattlers]. It’s like one of

those things where it was

like, ‘Oh my gosh! She’s a

senior. Weird.’ It made me

feel really old.”

But when it came to Abby’s

performance, Volini

said she saw a glimpse of the

girl that she once knew.

“Abby is extremely passionate,”

she opined. “She’s

one of those girls that takes

a loss hard and a win is very

exciting....she loves to compete.

She’s one of those girls

who becomes very frustrated

when she’s lost a game, but

that’s just because she cares

so much.”

That’s the attitude Abby

plans to carry with her, as

she is embark on a new journey

next fall.

“It was definitely an eye

opener because I never expected

to play hockey in

college,” Abby said of being

recruited to play for Lindenwood.

“It was never really

my kind of thing growing

up.”

But she accepted the opportunity

– which came with

a five-year scholarship – especially

since that college

offered the athletic training

program that she was looking

for.

“To be recruited on a team

that’s only two years old but

already sixth in the nation

out of so many teams was

unbelievable,” Abby said.

“I just really liked [Lindenwood].

“It kind of seemed like

it was too good to be true.

Opening the [acceptance]

letter and seeing a scholarship...it

was just an amazing

feeling. I couldn’t stop smiling

for the rest of the day or

that week even.”

Dan Rizzie had quite a

whirlwind week.

On Saturday, June 11, he

was sitting in Orland Park,

waiting for a phone call. He

got it and now the 2012 Sandburg

graduate will spend the

rest of the summer in New

York, New York.

That’s because Rizzie was

selected in the 2016 MLB

First-Year Player Draft on June

11, going in the 13th round to

the New York Mets. He reported

to New York the following

Monday, June 13, took

his physical two days later and

was set to be on the roster of

the Brooklyn Cyclones when

they hosted the Staten Island

Yankees on June 17 at MCU

Park in Coney Island, NY.

The Cyclones are the Short-

Season A classification team

for the Mets in the Penn

League. That is a step above

Rookie League and a step below

the regular Class A team.

The short season runs through

Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 5).

“I was in Orland Park, sitting

there and waiting for the

call,” Rizzie said of the Saturday

call on draft day. “Then it

happened.”

It actually could have happened

the night before. But

Rizzie rejected a 10th round

offer from another MLB team

when they made him a lowball

signing bonus offer that was

below market value for 10thround

pick. He was glad he

waited.

“It’s exciting,” Rizzie said.

“I’m able to join such a great

organization and want to thank

the Mets for the opportunity.

They have a great young

pitching staff and everything

is looking good so far.”

Rizzie, a catcher, recently

Dan Rizzie, a 2012 graduate of Sandburg High School and a

2016 graduate of Xavier University, was drafted June 11 by

the New York Mets.

charles Banke/Xavier University

“He had a fabulous collegiate

career, and his selection by the

Mets is well-deserved. He was one

of the best catchers in the nation

this season.”

Jim Morsovillo — Sandburg baseball coach, on

former player Dan Rizzie’s recent draft

completed his senior season at

Xavier University in Cincinnati.

He missed most of his junior

season with a hand injury.

“I broke my catching hand

in March [of 2015] and it took

extra time to heal,” Rizzi said.

“I was hoping to get drafted

that year, but it didn’t happen

with taking the time to heal. I

did get a redshirt for that season,

so I had another season of

eligibility. But I didn’t want to

use it.”

Instead he was drafted by

the defending National League

champions. That was a much

earned honor after the season

Rizzie just had. He led the

Musketeers with a .317 batting

average in 2016. Because of

that, he earned All-BIG EAST

First Team honors. He really

did well down the stretch, hitting

.383 (36-for-94) as Xavier

went 18-4 over its last 22

games. Rizzie’s hot bat helped

lead Xavier to a sweep of the

BIG EAST regular season and

tournament titles for the first

time in school history.

But it wasn’t just his senior

season where Rizzie did well.

He had a pair of great postseason

runs, earning NCAA

All-Region honors twice in his

career. One of the best catchers

in school history, Rizzie was

named to the Johnny Bench

Haleem participated in

Transplant Games of

held June 10-16 in

Cleveland.

Freelance Reporter

Ibrahim Haleem underwent

four liver transplants by the

time he was five years old.

The Orland Park native

doesn’t remember much

about those difficult times,

but he’s certainly grateful

for the donors that have allowed

him to live a healthy

and productive life since.

“I really have no recollection

of any of the transplant

procedures,” Haleem said.

“It’s a good thing, because

I don’t have to have those

memories of pain and suffering,

but my family tells me it

was hell.

“While I can’t say much

about those years, what I can

say is that now, almost 20

years later, I feel fantastic.”

Haleem, 24, is a graduate

of Benedictine University

and is in graduate school at

Northern Illinois. He teaches

physical education and

health at Parker Junior High

in Flossmoor.

He knows he wouldn’t be

where he is today without

people who were willing to

donate organs. It’s that appreciation

that has him on a

mission to raise awareness

for organ donations.

With that in mind, Haleem

competed for Team Illinois

in the 2016 Donate

Life Transplant Games of

America from June 10 to 16

in Cleveland.

The event features people

from across the country who

have received organ transplants

competing in athletic

competitions as well as less

strenuous games like trivia

contests.

It’s all meant to encourage

outsiders to become organ

donors, as well as to celebrate

the life-saving transplants

the participants have

already received.

“A few years ago, I became

really active on Twitter

and I was looking for other

transplant recipients to interact

with and I just stumbled

upon the Transplant Games

by chance,” Haleem said. “I

contacted them and got involved.

I knew it’d be a fun

time.”

Haleem first participated

in the games in 2014, winning

a gold medal in cornhole,

also known as bean

bag toss.

This year, he won the

bronze in cornhole along

with his teammate Randy

Zwier. He also took home

bronze medals in basketball

and volleyball as a member

of Team Illinois.

“This is an experience that

I’d remember and treasure

regardless, but to have those

medals just as something

tangible that I can look back

at years from now, it means a

lot,” Haleem said.

“It’s just such a great experience

to get to go to an event

like this and be able to interact

with people from all over

the country that, immediately,

you have something huge

in common with. Then you

learn a lot more about them.”

Haleem and his family

have their own foundation,

Miracles Made Thru Research,

which raises money

for research of de novo autoimmune

hepatitis, a condition

which affects many

people who undergo liver

transplants.

Haleem was diagnosed

with the condition in 2002.

“We started having events

to raise money in 2007,” Haleem

said. “We’ve done bowling

fundraisers and other

events and it’s a cause that’s

really important to me.”

While Haleem’s family

charity is doing all it can to

raise money, the Transplant

Games are also succeeding

in encouraging people to donate

organs.

“Speaking with a lot of the

volunteers at the games, a lot

of them never even had being

an organ donor on their

minds before,” Haleem said.

“After seeing us compete,

they have a reason to sign

up. There are immediate results.

It’s great to see.”

Sandburg hockey alum looks to Lindenwood for success

F. Amanda Tugade

Assistant Editor

Seventeen-year-old Abby

Flaherty is nothing but passionate

when it comes to

playing ice hockey. In fact, it

is the only sport that she lives

and breathes for.

With her stick in hand,

nothing – and importantly no

one – can come between her

and that puck.

The recent Sandburg High

School graduate is now the

newest member of the Lindenwood

Lady Lions ice

hockey team, and she plans

to study athletic training and

psychology at Lindenwood

University in Belleville.

“I like the rush of the

sport,” Flaherty said, noting

“being a part of the team,

saying you’re a part of something”

keeps her fulfilled and

faithful to her favorite sport.

At a young age, Flaherty

recalled being immersed into

playing different types of

sports, including soccer and

softball, and immediately,

she connected with the idea

of competition. However,

her love of hockey came

from watching and attending

her older brother’s hockey

games, and she later followed

in his footsteps.

“I actually started playing

guys hockey up until I was

probably 10,” Abby said,

adding the lack of girls hockey

teams in the southwest

suburbs of Chicago forged

her to venture on an unconventional

path.

“As a girl playing hockey,

one of the biggest challenges

was finding a good fit team,”

she said. “When I was growing

up, there were really no

girls hockey teams around

here. I had to go to Naperville,

Bolingbrook, Glenview

[and] Winnetka...growing up

with that as an athlete, your

teammates become your

friends, especially [when]

playing on a travel team.”

At Sandburg, Abby found

her place with the boys junior

varsity ice hockey team

during her freshman and

sophomore year. In fact, she

admitted it never mattered –

nor did it feel any different –

to her whether she was on a

boys or a girls team.

“[The boys] treated me like

everyone else,” she said of

being the only girl on a boys

hockey team. “We goofed

around. We always talked.

The only difference, I guess,

between me and the guys is

that we had to change in different

locker rooms.”

After stepping away from

the team to focus on her academics

in her junior year,
