Hundreds celebrate Fourth in New Lenox

Tim Hadac, Freelance Reporter

As the rock cover band

Wildfire conducted a sound

check and joked with the

crowd growing on the lawn

Monday, July 4, at the New

Lenox Village Commons,

the five-member Cruz family

engaged in a friendly

debate about the fireworks

show coming in about 90

minutes.

“I like the colors; they’re

beautiful, unlike anything

else,” Marisol said.

Her 10-year- old daughter,

Giselle, agreed.

“They’re like big flowers,

blooming in the sky,” she

said.

Giselle’s father, Jose, said

that while he likes the colors,

the bone-shaking explosions

“are what float my

boat and have ever since I

was a kid. Reminds me of

Sox Park, from years ago,

every time Frank Thomas

would hit a home run.

“We’d go crazy. Same

here. We come here every

year and cheer.”

Marisol and Jose’s 3-yearold

son, Angel, agreed but

was more succinct.

“I like the boom-booms,”

he said with wide eyes.

The tie-breaking vote belonged

to 9-month-old Teresita,

but she did not indicate

a preference as she sucked

her Minnie Mouse pacifier.

Others were first-timers,

such as New Lenox resident

Colleen Lafleur and her son,

Wyatt, 4, who shyly said he

likes fireworks but wasn’t

sure which ones were his

favorites.

“We did our backyard

celebrating yesterday, so

we figured we’d come over

here for one last hurrah before

we head back to work

on Tuesday,” Colleen said.

Some were veterans of

the annual blowout, including

New Lenox resident

Gwen Jablonski, who

wore a blue top accented

by a stars-and-stripes scarf.

She began attending New

Lenox’s Fourth of July celebrations

more than 40 years

ago, she said.

She sat with Sharon

Schondorf, also of New

Lenox, who has attended for

about 30 years.

“I sang here with the

Lincoln-Way Area Chorale

years ago, when this [event]

opened up,” Jablonski said.

In all, hundreds of men,

women and children enjoyed

New Lenox’s annual

celebration of America’s

independence from colonial

rule.

As Wildfire riled up the

crowd with its high-energy

version of Pat Benatar’s

1980 hit “Hit Me With Your

Best Shot,” several New

Lenox Lions Club members

roamed the crowd, prowling

for generous souls to buy

raffle tickets.

“This event tonight is

about patriotism, about the

nation, about the community

— and the community is

what we’re all about,” said

Lion Marie Wheeler, as she

sold tickets at $10 each for

the service organization’s

60th annual sweepstakes

drawing.

The grand prize is $5,000,

and a total of eight winners

are to be drawn on July 28

at the New Lenox Community

Park District’s Proud

American Days celebration.

“And yes, this is about

New Lenox, but this celebration

draws people from

far and wide,” Wheeler

added. “Down yonder, I

just met a woman here from

Knoxville, Tennessee, who

is visiting. So this is the

face of New Lenox, but it’s

also the face of America, in

a way.”

The club has about three

dozen members and is always

looking for more men

and women to step forward,

Wheeler said.

After Wildfire burned

through its 15-song set, the

crowd received a pleasant

jolt at 8 p.m., as pilot Tom

Buck buzzed the commons

anthem as the colors are presented Monday, July 4, at the

not once but twice in a vintage

World War II Avenger,

a Navy torpedo bomber that

debuted in 1942 at the Battle

of Midway. The flyover

drew a roar from the crowd.

Music lovers at the celebration

then settled in to

hear the more traditional

sounds of the 65-piece Joliet

American Legion Band,

led by the baton of Tom

Drake, an acclaimed band

leader and music educator

who joined the band as a

clarinetist and has served as

its conductor since John F.

Kennedy was president.

Founded in 1946, the band

has played before seven

U.S. presidents and prides

itself on its disciplined musical

style, in the tradition

of John Philip Sousa.

The biggest cheers of

the evening, though, were

saved for the pyrotechnics

that lit up the night sky — a

breathtaking combination of

blooms and boom-booms,

as at least one family in the

crowd might have said.

New Lenox Village Board

Trustees consider rezoning property near Silver Cross

Meredith Dobes, Editor

Silver Cross Hospital

sought rezoning of land adjacent

to its campus at the New

Lenox Village Board’s June

27 meeting.

The land in question is approximately

58 acres along

the west side of Silver Cross

Boulevard, 550 feet south

of U.S. Route 6, and was

originally zoned agricultural.

Silver Cross recently purchased

the land from New

Lenox School District 122

and sought hospital zoning

for the land in order to, in

the future, be able to build

an outpatient surgical center

there and/or offices, according

to Robin Ellis, the Village’s

community development

director.

Currently, the only use discussed

for the land is the surgery

center, for which Silver

Cross would still need site

plan approval.

Ellis said a public hearing

was held about the rezoning

at a Plan Commission

meeting, and residents spoke

about concerns they had.

Some also emailed their

concerns to Village staff, she

said.

Residents who live nearby

Silver Cross also spoke at the

Village Board meeting about

water drainage, weeds in the

currently vacant property and

concerns about how tall the

buildings that could be built

on the property would be.

with finding the right home loan.

Gary Beckfeld asked the

Village Board what would be

done about current flooding

issues in the Spring Creek

neighborhood and what

would be done about animals

being attracted to the area by

tall weeds on the vacant land.

Ellis said that by Village

Code, weeds are required to

be cut 45 feet back in vacant

lots, which is what had been

done at the Silver Cross lot.

Susanne Picchi, another

resident of the neighborhood,

said the weeds are still

approximately 5 feet tall,

and she does not want animals

like field mice or raccoons

becoming attracted to

the area and subsequently

her home. She also said she

was concerned about the potential

height of buildings on

the land. A medical office on

the property can be a maximum

height of 135 feet tall,

and other buildings can be

a maximum of 85 feet tall,

with a 50-foot setback from

the perimeter of the property

lines, Ellis said.

“That’s not to say that’s

what Silver Cross is going

to propose, because this is

the same zoning district as

the hospital campus, and the

tallest building there is six

stories,” Ellis added.

Picchi also brought up

water drainage concerns in

Spring Creek and said the

idea of there being more concrete

in the lot concerns her.

Trustee David Smith said

the weeds on the property

are actually helping with water

drainage for now, and if

Silver Cross were to move

forward with its proposed

surgical center, two detention

ponds it would need to

build as part of developing

the land would help alleviate

the drainage issues.

“I know that Silver Cross

wants to be a good neighbor

and wants to make sure

“Other than that, I think

it’s great,” he said. “There’s

Board’s next meeting.

ShareFest purchases new walk-in cooler/freezer for pantry

Meredith Dobes, Editor

The New Lenox Township

Food Pantry is on track

to having its own walk-in

cooler/freezer unit for its

new pantry building after

ShareFest committee members

approved the unit’s

purchase at the committee’s

June 28 meeting.

Work on a new pantry

building has been ongoing

since the fall, and one of

ShareFest’s goals for this

year was to purchase the

walk-in unit for the pantry

so that perishable food

items would be able to be

stored and accessed more

efficiently and at a higher

volume than was currently

possible with the pantry’s

older equipment.

The new pantry building,

which is to be housed

in a former Township Road

District building behind the

Township Offices, at 1100

S. Cedar Road, is still under

construction, but once

completed, it will provide

more space and the ability

for individuals who need to

use the pantry to shop for

their own groceries rather

than have volunteers collect

items for them.

ShareFest, in partnership

with other organizations,

is purchasing the

walk-in cooler/freezer unit

for $20,661.58 from Central

Restaurant Products.

The cost includes a refrigeration

system and various

warranties. The unit is 20

feet long, 10 feet wide and

7 feet, 7 inches tall, and is

divided into two compartments.

Along with this purchase,

ShareFest is planning

on buying a smaller

reach-in refrigerator from

Central Restaurant Products

for the pantry. It is priced at

$5,216.66.

The reach-in refrigerator

is to allow pantry personnel

to put food items on display

for pantry visitors to view

and take, as visitors will not

be able to enter the walk-in

unit.

The combined cost is

$25,878.24.

ShareFest has received

contributions from various

individual donors and

partner organizations in

the past few months. It

is pooling its resources

from various fundraising

accounts, including United

Way of Will County, Fishers

of Men and New Lenox

Township’s Family Services

Foundation to purchase

the unit. Additionally,

ShareFest received an

$11,250 grant for the

pantry through the Northern

Illinois Food Bank.

Peace Lutheran Church

in New Lenox also offered

to donate up to $11,000 to

ShareFest for the unit.

Deacon Shari Trotter said

the church does not hold

funds it receives during the

year but seeks to use them

for good in the community

and world.

After the NIFB grant,

the remaining needed

$14,628.24 will be split in

three ways — $4,876.08

each from the Family Services

Foundation, the

ShareFest fundraising account

and Peace Lutheran

Church.

ShareFest Founder Gary

Cheney said he met with the

Township’s Family Services

Foundation prior to the

committee meeting and

discussed the proposals the

Township received for the

cooler/freezer unit. He said

the aforementioned units

were what the Foundation

approved of, and he wanted

to bring it to the committee

for a vote before proceeding.

The order was placed, and

Cheney said he hopes the

unit will be delivered within

three weeks.

“I know the money

lies in different places,”

Cheney said. “Isn’t that the

ShareFest way, the way it

is. It works when we work

together rather than as one

entity doing it all.”

Cheney added that no

matter the amount of money

ShareFest raises, it will

always be put to use in the

community to meet the

needs of neighbors.

10 Steps to a Pain-free Remodel

Make it your own.

Don’t design for your

neighbors or other people’s

perception of beautiful design.

Collect as many pictures as

possible and identify what

specifically you like about

them. Is it the color? Is it the

cabinet color? Or is it the

1. 2. 3.

layout? Etc.

Construction

services are not

the same

from one company to another.

It’s not like buying a car that

is made by the same

manufacturer. The way your

space is put together

5. 6.

is critical.

Avoid delivery

delays.

Don’t start until all items

have arrived to

the contractor.

9.

Visit a showroom.

Consult with one of their

designers and share your

ideas with them. Good

designers will guide you

through the process to

reach a coherent design.

Insist on using

trade professionals

for electrical and plumbing

work, even if you are not

obtaining a permit. This will

depend on the scope and

complexity of the project.

Don’t stress

over unexpected issues that

you will certainly run into.

Talk to your contractor and

work through them quickly

10.

and professionally. Don’t

delay your decisions because

you eventually have to

make them!

Don’t be

discouraged.

Design is an evolution, not a

revolution. It might take a

few tries to get the look and

design that fits your style.

Obtain a print-out

of the construction

schedule

to keep the project on

schedule and

7.

make sure it is

progressing on time with no

unjustified delays.

Like us on Facebook

and post your questions!

Select a one stop

shop showroom

that can provide design and

installation services. This

centralizes the

responsibilities

4.

and give

you one party or person to

deal with.

Obtain a detailed

contract

with a clearly defined scope

to avoid any financial

disagreements. Specify all

model numbers

8.

and

allowances on the invoice.

Enjoy your new space,

Cedar Stables instructors lead

summer horseback riding camps

Peyton Nobis and Madeline

Reno always have wanted to

make working with horses a

professional endeavor.

They have achieved that

dream after decades of experience,

as they are now training

horses and teaching horseback

riding students at Cedar Stables

in Homer Glen.

Reno and her boyfriend,

Jeremy Canker, live on the 10-

acre property at 14856 W. Reiter

Drive that includes seven dry

lot pastures, a 5-acre field and a

grass pasture for 26 horses they

board at the stables.

Cedar Stables has leased the

property since August 2015

and hired Nobis in May as a

horse trainer and horseback

riding instructor.

Though the stable is full

for boarding, Nobis can travel

to train other horses. Cedar

Stables offers horseback riding

lessons for ages 2 and older,

and also is holding horseback

riding camps this summer for

ages 6-13.

that helps the homeless

DeBoer is excited to show

That is why she was not shy

to invite several guests, close

The beauty of sports

James Sanchez

j.sanchez@22ndcenturymedia.com

The Lincoln-Way

students moving

to different high

schools could have a tough

transition — new surroundings,

new classmates, new

teachers — but for the most

part, the toughest challenge

may be finding new friends.

This isn’t anything similar

to junior high students

going into high school.

Some of these students are

entering their senior year at

a different school, like Joey

DiNaso, who is transferring

from East to Central. However,

luckily for him, he

and other athletes transferring

will have themselves

an easier transition than

others in the district, and

that’s because of sports.

With summer sports and

camps in full swing, these

activities provide a bridge

to the school’s new students

to make friends. Whether

it’s a month-long camp or

one that just lasts a couple

Huge

of days, they will be useful

down the road, as those connections

made in the summer

will be revisited when

the school year starts.

And with summer

leagues, it makes the bond

even stronger, since all are

working together toward

achieving a goal. With that

said, these student-athletes

will already have a core of

friends before even starting

their first day of school.

That’s the feeling I got

when watching DiNaso on

the basketball court with

his new Knights teammates

throughout the summer.

The team welcomed these

new players with open

arms, because they are

all looking to win, putting

egos to the side. And

DiNaso expressed the same

sentiment when I asked him

about his transition into a

new program.

West’s Ryan McWilliams

is in the same position. He

was one of the best players

on Central’s team last

year and now has to adjust

to new teammates and

earn his stripes with the

Warriors. I covered West

earlier this week during a

Lockport tournament, and

he said the same thing in

that the team is accepting

of who he is because the

team’s chemistry is important

to its success.

Back in spring, after the

VOYAGEUR SALES 815.464.0531

North girls soccer team was

defeated soundly by East in

the last matchup between

the two teams, the Griffins

underclassmen gave North

coach Mike Murphy, who

will be East’s coach next

year, flowers and spirit

wear, and greeted their

future teammates. When I

asked East’s Caroline Kilrea

about the gesture, she

said it was a way to reassure

their new head coach

that he’s welcomed, and

that she wants the Phoenix

players moving over to

know that they want to be

best friends.

This is credit to the character

of the East, Central

and West players. People

may think negatively about

this situation and selfishly,

believing that the new players

will threaten their future

roles on the team. Instead,

it seems like the teams are

embracing this transition,

knowing that these extra

players will only make their

programs stronger. The

added depth should only

push these players even

harder to strive for a starting

role during position battles.

Besides winning and

competing, the best part of

sports is the bonds formed

along with it. And I’m

happy that the Lincoln-

Way student athletes have

grasped that in the summer,

so far.

Lincoln-Way D210 debuts all-district marching band

Meredith Dobes, Editor

Cary Ruklic was accustomed

to the sound of Lincoln-Way

West’s 50-somemember

marching band, so

when the West band instructor

first heard the sound of

the 320-member combined

Lincoln-Way Community

High School District 210

ensemble, he was impressed.

The district made the decision

to combine its students

into one district-wide

marching band this year

after the closure of Lincoln-

Way North High School.

The decision was in part to

keep friends together and in

part to open the district to

new possibilities.

“Obviously, we’re in a

pretty unique situation as a

district, and creating this one

band allowed us to provide

a consistent experience for

all the band students in the

district,” Ruklic said. “It really

opens the door for us to

provide different kinds of

experiences for the students

that we couldn’t necessarily

do as three groups — things

like the Macy’s or Rose parades

are now possibilities.”

As four individual bands

last year, the groups ranged

in size from approximately

50 members to approximately

120, with varying

numbers of drum majors and

section leaders.

In the district band, there

are five drum majors and

roughly three or four section

leaders per section.

Marching band directors are

Ruklic, Bert Johnson, Justin

Barnish and Christopher

Mroczek.

Madeline Wilson, one

of the drum majors and a

Lincoln-Way Central senior,

said seeing all of the

students come together has

been exciting.

“As individual bands,

we have been able to do

Mitchell Alcoser, a drum major and Lincoln-Way West

senior, observes the band from the sideline.

really, really cool things, but

coming together, we will be

able to make something so

much bigger than anything

we’ve ever been able to do

before,” she said. “I think

the potential we have is most

exciting.”

Fellow drum major and

West senior Mitchell Alcoser

agreed.

“We’ve been talking about

this group for months,” he

said. “We’ve been talking

about what it’s going to be

like, what rehearsals are going

to be like, how things are

going to go, and we finally

reached the point where

we’re doing it.”

The application process

was different this year for

drum majors and section

leaders. The district had students

submit applications

online, and it had approximately

90 students apply,

Ruklic said. The band directors

then invited finalists to

interview and selected the

leaders afterward.

“We didn’t want to exclude

kids who would’ve

had a leadership role at a different

school,” Ruklic said.

“We were trying to be as inclusive

as we could through

that process.”

Other big differences with

this year’s band are that

rehearsals and equipment

move from school to school,

formation June 24 at Lincoln-Way Central High School.

and the band’s uniforms had

to be unified.

“The uniforms are going

to be awesome,” Ruklic

said. “We’ll use the black

pants we already have, and

we bought white coats and

are making a printed overlay

with the band logo in a cool

abstract Renaissance design

for over the jacket. We’re using

hats we already have and

printing a cover that will go

around those so they all look

the same.”

The band made its debut

in Mokena’s Fourth of July

parade, playing “The Battle

Hymn of the Republic” and

“Born in the USA.”

It is working on its competitive

show for the season,

as well, titled “Renew.”

The concept of the show is

representative of the unifying

band — a rebirth, or four

coming into one.

“Before it starts, each

school is represented in different

corners of the field,”

Ruklic said. “Through the

beginning, they’ll all come

together as one. The beginning

of the show is titled

‘The Dark Ages.’ It’s a very

dark, tense kind of Medieval

battle imagery. The music

is aggressive. Coming out

of that, it’s representing the

Enlightenment. There’s a

section representing art and

architecture and mathematics,

so the music is based on

the music from the movie ‘A

Beautiful Mind.’ It’s very

cool, kind of minimalistic

music that shows the birth of

all these things.

“Then, there’s a coronation

scene, so that will come

together as us coronating a

new queen. That represents

all four Lincoln-Ways coming

together as one band,

and the Renaissance section

after that is the rebirth — a

joyful, triumphant ending to

the show.”

Alan Spaeth designed the

show for the band, and the

band is also working with

an arranger and drill writer

for the music and placement

of students on the field,

respectively.

The band plans to compete

in a number of shows toward

the end of its marching season,

including the Bands of

America Regional and the

Grand National Championships,

which both take place

at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

“There’s something super

special about Lucas Oil,”

Wilson said. “Not everyone

in the band has been able to

experience it, and I have had

the pleasure of being able to

do so. I’m excited to see how

everyone reacts, because it’s

something completely out of

this world. You cannot understand

it until you’ve done it.”

Alcoser added that hearing

everyone play at the stadium

and hearing the release

after the final note of their

show has been played is

something he looks forward

to, as well as the growth of

skill and friendships across

schools throughout the season.

“Getting to see the end

product is something I’ve

always looked forward to,”

said Abby Panozzo, a drum

major and Lincoln-Way East

senior. “I think the end product

is going to be something

better than we ever pictured

in our heads.”

Ruklic agreed that seeing

the students react to their

sound and unity together has

been one of the most enjoyable

things about the schools

coming together to form one

band.

“This is our last year with

marching band,” Alcoser

said of his fellow seniors.

“To go from being a freshman

in a band of 50 that was

small but mighty, now into a

band that is six times bigger

is incredible to experience.

After we’re done, we get to

see what they’ll do after that.

We’ll see the tradition continue

on in bigger and better

ways, and 10 years from

now, we’ll get to say, ‘Back

in my day, I was there and

started that.’ I look forward

to being able to say that.”

‘The Legend of Tarzan’ leaves

viewers hanging on the vine

Robert Sieger

New Lenox resident

They have been trying to

make a decent Tarzan movie

for years. Since 1918, there

have been 48 attempts to

bring the jungle hero to film,

and the last three were direct

to video Disney animation

films.

The last time the Lord

of the Jungle was adapted

for live action was in 1998

when teen heartthrob Casper

Van Dien starred in “Tarzan

and the Lost City.” Don’t remember

it? Don’t feel bad.

Neither does most of the

movie-going public (except

for me, and I am still having

nightmares).

Director David Yates (best

known for his Harry Potter

films) announced his own

Tarzan project in late 2014,

and “The Legend of Tarzan,”

nearly three years later, is

what he has to show for his

efforts. With weak writing,

even weaker acting and two

leading characters who have

absolutely no chemistry, this

latest version of Tarzan is just

as dull as its predecessors.

I will give Yates some

credit; what it lacks in probable,

dramatic story, it makes

up for in some stunning jungle

visuals. Never mind that

what action sequences there

are, a jumble of mishmash

cuts make it hard to follow.

The vista shots were stunning.

But for better jungle

action sequences with a story

that will move you, Disney’s

“The Jungle Book” is

a much better bet.

The story is convoluted

and almost slapdash in the

way it is put together. Even

the good parts are not good

enough to muddle through

the mess. The story starts as

Tarzan (pretty boy Alexander

Skarsgard) is asked to travel

back into the Congo to help

a trade agreement with Belgium’s

King Leopold II, who

seems to be systematically

plundering the Congo. There

is a back story that is told

through flashbacks that are

often confusing. It’s like an

origin story told within a sequel,

and it just doesn’t work.

Even the villains aren’t menacing

with the usually evil

Christoph Waltz even seeming

as bared as the audience.

As I mentioned earlier,

the chemistry between Jane

(Margot Robbie) and Tarzan

was simply not there,

so even that part of the story

was dull. Samuel L. Jackson

as the true life George Washington

Williams seemed to

be the only one having any

sort of fun.

Skip the 3-D version. It is

not worth your extra hardearned

shillings. As a matter

of fact, wait for this C-effort

to show up with the rest of

the B-movies on Netflix in

about a month. I think it’s

time for filmmakers to realize

that Tarzan is dead on the

vine.

The Dish

Antonis stands as bastion of variety, family values in Lockport

Restaurant delivers

Mediterranean

cuisine with heavy

Greek influence

Bill Jones, Managing Editor

Anyone who grabs a table

during the lunch hour at Antonis

Grill & Catering will

likely witness a common

sight.

Customers stroll in, and

customers stroll out, often

grabbing only soups or

salads, maybe sandwiches.

Though some order

the more hearty dinner

offerings that typically

do better during the

restaurant’s early evening

hours. Most know general

manager Mo Elyan simply

as “Mo,” and call to him by

name as they enter. He, in

turn, knows many on the

same first-name basis.

And that is not something

that came about by accident.

While Antonis focuses on

Mediterranean cuisine with

some major Greek influences,

a family atmosphere

might as well be the second

bullet point on the Lockport

spot’s business plan.

“We just thrive off people

being happy,” Elyan said.

“What I love about food is

it brings laughter, it brings

joy, it brings happiness. If

everyone talked about food,

the world would be a better

place.”

Elyan’s love for food

translates to his approach

to cooking — a job he

shares with business partner

George Rodriguez — in

a kitchen that, while small,

tries to do as much from

scratch as possible, delivering

fresh soups daily,

time-consuming traditional

preparations of family recipes

and new twists that keep

customers excited.

“We’re the opposite of

a franchise,” Elyan said.

“Our hands are making

everything.”

As a result, the soups and

salads alone have proven

a major draw, with many

stopping in the restaurant

just for those. Elyan said

Antonis may craft up to 50

different varieties weekly,

with two on each day.

“We make soup every

day,” Elyan said. “The soup

never gets old.”

Those include Antonis’

Now is the time to step in and make the move – to Brookside Meadows in Tinley

Park. Not only are interest rates on the move but Crana Homes has announced that

Brookside Meadows will soon begin Phase II - which means the remaining homes in

Phase I are attractively priced to sell.

take on Avgolemeno — a

traditional Greek chicken

soup with egg-lemon sauce

— that drops the egg from

the recipe to help accommodate

allergies. It bills itself

simply as a “chicken with

lemon rice” soup but maintains

many of the traditional

flavors.

Elyan said customers also

regularly make requests

for things they have never

tried, or things they simply

had yesterday and returned

to find were no longer on

the menu. Antonis is happy

to accommodate whenever

possible, and that goes for

customers requesting other

off-menu items, if the ingredients

are on hand.

“We’re always open to

suggestions,” Elyan said.

“If they want a certain soup

made, we’ll make it.

“They’re helping us out

by giving us ideas. ... We

like to be in touch with our

customers. It keeps them

hungry, talking and coming

back to us.”

The heart of the Greek

dinners menu begins with

gyros ($9.99) which feature

two pitas and two sauces

for diners to try. Like all

dinners, it comes with rice

pilaf, oven-brown potatoes,

soup and Greek salad.

From there, it moves to

one of the most popular

items: souvlakia. Available

in chicken ($9.99), steak

($11.99) and sometimes

other varieties, like pork or

lamb, souvlakia is simply

the Greek word for shish

kebab, but comes served

without the vegetables.

That portion of the menu

also offers the half Greek

chicken ($9.99), spanakopita

(spinach pie, $9.99)

and much more, focusing on

Mediterranean-focused ingredients

like oil, oregano,

feta, olives, pepper, lemons

Antonis Grill & Catering in Lockport offers a variety of

Mediterranean specialties with Greek influences, from gyros

to chicken to souvlakia to salads, pitas, oven-browned

potatoes and rice pilaf. Bill Jones/22nd Century Media

and garlic.

“Most of it is the norm,

but it’s how you use it,”

Elyan said of the spices that

define Mediterranean cuisine.

“We take a bit from

everybody, and we put our

own spin on it.”

Across the board, Elyan

said it also is important to

focus on quality ingredients.

“If I wouldn’t feed it to

my kid, I wouldn’t feed

it to someone else’s kid,”

he said of his philosophy.

“It’s home away from home

food.”

The restaurant also serves

the gyros, souvlakia, chicken

and more as sandwiches,

offering diners lighter and

cheaper options that tend to

sell more during the lunch

hours.

And while the restaurant’s

recipes stem from

those honed over many

years of being cooked by

Elyan’s family, he is not

afraid to tweak them or to

try new things entirely. A

shining example of that are

the Greek chicken wings

Antonis recently started

offering — featured fried,

bone-in chicken wings in

a Greek marinade, topped

with crumbled feta cheese

and olives for a fusion of

flavors quite unlike anything

else on the menu, or in

the area.

“People are blown away

[by those],” Elyan said.

“It’s something different.”

Antonis opened in Lockport

roughly seven years ago,

but Elyan and Rodriguez

took over the spot in 2012

and have only watched it

grow in popularity as the retail

strip around it has filled

out over the past few years.

Elyan said, at this point, he

feels like the restaurant has

become an important part of

the community. He also feels

the community has become

an important part of his life.

“It’s a pleasure to be

here,” he said. “It’s really

motivating.”

the New Lenox Patriot | July 7, 2016 | 35

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Reed McCool

McCool is a recent graduate

of Providence Catholic High

School where he was a member

of the Celtics baseball

team. He is attending North

Central College in the fall to

play baseball.

Who got you into

baseball?

My dad started me off

when I was 4 years old playing

T-ball for a local league.

What do you like most

about it?

I love the fact that any day,

any team can come out and

beat anybody, especially for

our team the last three years.

We had that thought in our

minds that we could beat anyone

on any day, and we went

out and proved it.

Do you have any

pregame superstitions?

Before the game, I like to

run up and down the left field

fence for a little bit.

Why did you want to

become a pitcher?

I had a lot of fun pitching,

and it was always something

that was a challenge for me.

To be out there and be the

one to control the pace of the

game was always something I

was interested in.

Who is your favorite

athlete?

Albert Pujols. It’s kind of

an oxymoron because I’m a

pitcher, and pitchers aren’t

supposed to like hitters, but

Albert is a really good guy.

What’s something most

people don’t know about

you?

I like to clean stuff. I like

to clean the dugout and keep

the baseball field clean. I like

fieldwork. I have a passion for

that. It might be something I

can turn into a career someday.

You’re trapped on an

island, and you can only

bring three things. What

would they be?

A fishing rod for sure, a Bible

and something to sleep on.

What was it like to

win two straight state

championships?

The year we did it the first

time was so special, and we

all could’ve played satisfied

James Sanchez/22nd Century

Media

the next year, but we weren’t

satisfied. It was apparent that

the guys who came back had

a hunger. The seniors instilled

in us that we had to work

hard, and all the hard work

would pay off, and it did.

What was your favorite

thing about Providence?

The community aspect it

had. We all called ourselves

a family, and no other school

or organization could have a

closer knit group of kids. Everybody

went to our games.

Everybody had everyone’s

back, and we were all there

for each other.

What made you choose

North Central College?

I really like downtown Naperville.

I like the program

there, and they have a great

head coach, Ed Mathey. I

played baseball with his son.

It’s also close to home, and

it’s great academically. It’s the

right fit for me.

Team 22: baseball

The staff of 22nd Century Media chose the best baseball student-athletes — based on coach

recommendations and player statistics — in its seven-town southwest suburban coverage area

to place on one super team. This team is made up of players from Lincoln-Way Central, Lincoln-

Way East, Lincoln-Way North, Lincoln-Way West, Providence Catholic, Andrew, Tinley Park, Lockport

Township and Sandburg high schools.

—Compiled by 22nd Century Media staff

FIRST TEAM

P: Kevin Lane, junior,

Sandburg

8-0, 1.5 ERA, 60 K.

All-SWSC Blue. It is

hard to argue with

Lane’s numbers this

past season, as the

hurler went undefeated,

amassing a ridiculous

number of strikeouts on

the season.

P: Tyler Zarembka,

junior, Providence

7-2, 1.62 ERA, 36 K.

The Celtics’ Zarembka

and Connor Hilty

were practically

interchangeable this

season, but Zarembka

took a slight advantage

in ERA and strikeouts.

C: Cody McArthur,

junior, Tinley

.422, 37 RBI, 31 R, 14

doubles, 3 HR, 17 BB.

McArthur’s hot bat and

play behind the plate

helped the Titans to

the best regular season

record in the school’s

history.

1B: Jackson Dvorak,

senior, Providence

.368, 9 doubles, 34

RBI, 20 R. All-CCL

Blue. On a state

championship team

stacked with talent,

Dvorak still found a way

to stand out with a solid

bat and defense on the

diamond.

2B: Mike Madej,

senior, Providence

.446, 17 doubles, 30

RBI, 45 R. All-CCL Blue.

Committed to Purdue,

Madej only improved

his already stellar

junior season numbers

and played an integral

infield role in the

Celtics’ state titles.

SS: Ben Troike, senior,

LW North

.359, 15 RBI, 33 R,

.565 SLG. All-SWSC

Red. The Phoenix

leadoff hitter is

committed to the

University of Illinois

after a stellar final

high school season.

3B: Ryan Hastings,

senior, LW West

.407, 12 doubles, 24

RBI, 25 R, 10 BB, .659

SLG. All-SWSC Red.

Hastings had a big bat,

but he was just as big

on defense. He also

earned a full academic

scholarship to the

University of Alabama.

OF: Cam Post, junior,

LW Central

.421. All-SWSC Red.

Post led the Knights in

both RBI and doubles,

as well as being the

most versatile player

on the roster, playing

catcher, third, outfield

and designated hitter

this past season.

HONORABLE MENTION

OF: Matt Waznis,

senior, Providence

.316, 8 doubles, 4

HRs, 42 RBI, 27 R.

Waznis was another

key player in the Celtics

state championship

squad, with a powerful

bat and bombastic

RBI numbers on the

season.

OF: Nick Figus, senior,

LW North

.398, 12 doubles, 18

RBI, 29 R, .551 SLG.

The Phoenix outfielder

posted big numbers

in his final high school

season to help the

Frankfort program end

its run on a positive

note.

DH: Colin Kelly, junior,

Tinley

.500, 20 RBI, 38 R,

10 doubles, 15 SB. In

a strong year for the

Titans, Kelly’s bat rang

out most often. He

also proved a danger

when stealing bases,

and went 4-1 with a

1.9 ERA as a pitcher.

P: Ben Davis, junior, Lockport; Connor Lowman,

junior, LW West.

IF: Colin Winston, senior, Andrew; Joey McGuire,

senior, Lockport; Matt Monahan, senior, LW

West; Brandon Skopick, senior, LW East;

Connor Callaghan, senior, Andrew; Mike Carey,

sophomore, Andrew; Gavin Lovesky, junior,

Lockport; Eric Papierski, junior, Sandburg, Tom

Szczasny, senior, LW North.

Providence

7-2, 1.83 ERA, 32 Ks.

P: Ryan Gabriel, junior,

Lockport

6-1, 2.04 ERA, 32 Ks.

C: Ben Zordani, senior, LW

West

.390, 12 doubles, .620

SLG, 26 RBI. All-SWSC

Red.

1B: Hunter Smith, senior,

LW East

.386, 3 HR, 27 RBI, 17 BB.

All-SWSC Blue.

2B: Anthony Cocco, senior,

Lockport

.348, 11 doubles, 32 RBI,

.600 SLG. All-SWSC Blue.

SS: Branden Comia,

sophomore, Sandburg

.351, 11 doubles, 23 RBI,

8 SB. All-SWSC Blue.

Providence

.378, 9 doubles, 23 RBI,

37 R. All-CCL Blue.

OF: Ryan McWilliams,

sophomore, LW Central

.372, .468 OBP, 24 R, 11

SB. All-SWSC Red.

West

.303, 24 RBI, 22 R, .485

SLG.

DH: Austin Franczak,

junior, Tinley

.453, 35 RBI, 28 R, 14

doubles, 7 SB.

Sturm’s late home run rallies West to win in extras

James Sanchez

Assistant Editor

Despite not providing as

much pop as a metal bat,

Lincoln-Way West catcher

Brendan Sturm still prefers

to use wood bats in games.

“I love the sound of it,”

the sophomore said. “When

you get a good piece of it,

you know you got a good

swing on it.”

Sturm said the wood bat

makes him feel like a professional,

and against Palatine

during the Lockport Porter

Summer Classic on June 28,

he hit a major league shot —

a three-run home run — in the

final inning of play to help put

the game into extra innings.

The Warriors eventually completed

the comeback with a

6-5 win in eight innings.

After scoring only one run

the first six innings, despite

a Warrior reaching base in

each frame, Sturm turned a

game of missed opportunities

into a dramatic sequence

at the end — starting with

his home run well over the

right field fence against a

submarine closer.

“He gave me a four-seamer

right down the middle,

and I put a good swing on

it,” he said. “It was the first

time I hit a home run with a

wood bat. It’s exciting, too,

because I did it with varsity.”

But that only made it a

tie game at 4-4. Next batter

Anthony Lullo walked,

was sacrificed over to second

base and was driven in

by Mike Majcher to take the

team’s first lead. The designated

hitter’s RBI turned

out to be vital, as the Pirates

answered back with a run in

the bottom of the seventh to

extend the game.

California rules were

enforced in extra innings,

which meant a runner was

on second base to start each

half inning with one out, to

accelerate the game. West

scored without needing a

hitter to put the ball in play

Lincoln-Way West outfielder Ryan McWilliams, who

transferred from Central, swings at a pitch June 28 at the

Lockport Porter Summer Classic.

James Sanchez/22nd Century Media

thanks to Noah Hibler, who

stole third and later scored

on a passed ball for the

winning run.

“It was interesting at the

end,” West coach Jake Zajc

said. “It was nice to have

a comeback. We got ourselves

into some interesting

situations — some good and

some bad — so that’s why

you play in the summer to go

through some of those things

and learn from it, and make

sure we don’t make the same

mistakes twice.”

West’s lack of run support

was also a credit to some of

Palatine’s great defensive

efforts. Lullo couldn’t tag

from third in the first inning

after a strong throw home

from Pirates’ center fielder

John Weber. The same scenario

occurred in the third

inning; but this time, Lullo

ran home, and Weber threw

him out.

Pirates right fielder Matt

Helms made a lunging catch

off the bat of Connor Lowman

in the sixth inning with

the bases loaded to maintain

a 4-1 lead before Sturm’s heroics.

Jimmy Helfrich provided

the team’s lone run in

the first six innings with an

RBI groundout that scored

Majcher.

The Warriors graduated

six players from its starting

lineup. Majcher, Hibler,

Danny Allen and Joe Paparelli

are the main pieces

returning on the offensive

side. Zajc said the summer

is for those fighting for positions,

and with the players

moving over from Central,

the offseason will be a crucial

time for the Warriors.

There aren’t any starting

positions established yet, but

Zajc said Sturm is definitely

making an impression to help

fill the void of losing last

year’s catcher, Ben Zordani.

“He’s a kid that we’re

looking to develop behind

the plate,” Zajc said of

Sturm. “He’s a baseball kid,

so he cares about it, and he

works at it. We look for him

to get stronger in the future,

but today, confidence-wise,

that’s big clutch hit for him.”

Big hits are what fueled

West’s success in the Lockport

Porter Summer Classic.

The day before, it defeated

Chicago Christian 8-4 and

narrowly lost to Andrew

7-5. Despite Central transfer

Ryan McWilliams’ short

time with the team thus far,

he said the offense has impressed

him the most and

that his confidence didn’t

waver with the three-run

deficit going into the final

inning.

“I definitely think we had

the offense to come back today,”

he said. “We came back

against Providence [a week

prior] and won 8-7 in the last

inning, as well. I’m confident

with our team, offensivewise.

I didn’t think we were

going to lose today.”

Boys Basketball

East’s Buggemi hits six 3-pointers to bury Central 52-37

James Sanchez

Assistant Editor

Lincoln-Way Central

guard Joey DiNaso said it is

always going to be awkward

stepping on the court against

Lincoln-Way East. He was a

Griffin during his first three

years of high school.

The senior has been playing

with East players Sam

and Max Shafer, Zach Zivo,

Zack Tencza and others

since fourth grade. A summer

league matchup on June

28 marked the second time

the two teams squared off,

and DiNaso has already embraced

being in his new surroundings,

away from his

former teammates.

“Going to Central, I kind

of have a chip on my shoulder,”

he said. “I want to be at

my best and beat the school I

used to go to, and make it like

a friendly rivalry.”

And in order to make it

a rivalry, the wins cannot

be one-sided. The first time

the two teams met, DiNaso

led the way to victory by a

double-digit margin. East

answered back the next time

around.

Behind a barrage of

3-pointers from guard

Joe Buggemi, the Griffins

avenged their previous loss

by defeating the Knights 52-

37 in New Lenox. The junior

hit six shots from behind

the arc and finished with a

game-high 20 points. Buggemi

said the addition of the

North players is motivating

him to improve his game, so

he could maintain a key role

in the rotation, like last year.

“The North kids coming

over, it’s definitely tough,”

he said. “They didn’t know

a lot of us, so there’s a lot of

competition for five starting

spots.”

Buggemi started off hot

scoring 11 of the team’s first

14 points after the tip-off, but

it was the Knights who came

away with a 24-22 first-half

lead by grinding out baskets

through offensive rebounds

and shots in the paint.

However, Central’s offense

went cold in the second half.

The Knights were only able

to muster two points in the

last five minutes of play, but

Central coach Bob Curran’s

goal for the game was to have

a chance to evaluate his players

for the upcoming season.

All of the team’s starters and

most key reserves graduated

in spring.

“Obviously we’re not in

season form,” Curran said.

“Right now, we’re evaluating

a lot of guys. We played all

16 guys today. We’re just trying

to get a feel on who could

do what with playing time.”

Chris Robinson led the

way with 11 points. DiNaso

tied big man Andrew Hancock

for second on the team

with eight points. Brian Ponton

and Luke Hanley each

had four points.

The Knights and Griffins

will enter next season in different

phases of their programs.

East will return plenty

of key members, along with

North standout Dorian Aluyi

transferring over, while Central

will have to redesign an

entirely new starting lineup.

Despite the differences, East

coach Rich Kolimas believes

the Knights will still be a big

test.

“Lincoln-Way Central is

going to be a formidable

team,” Kolimas said. “They

got some size. [Chris Robinson]

is really a nice player.

Joey DiNaso is tenacious, as

we know, and they also have

Aaron Michalak, who was

missing for them [today].

They’re going to be tough

this year.”

Knights wrestler taking

Amanda Jarzynski

Contributing Editor

At a young age, children

usually try new things so

they learn what they enjoy

and what will stick with them

throughout their lives.

Mokena resident and

Lincoln-Way Central

graduate Vinnie Piunti said

he was 5 years old when his

father signed him up to try

wrestling. Ever since then,

Piunti continued to wrestle,

and he excelled in his sport.

After graduation, he plans

on finding more success with

wrestling when he attends

MacMurray College in

Jacksonville, Illinois.

As a Knight, Piunti made

the varsity team all four years,

and by the end of his career,

boasted a record of 115 wins

and 33 loses with a total of 45

career falls.

“The competition is really

good,” Piunti said of why he

enjoys wrestling. “It’s a tough

sport, but it keeps you in

shape.”

On his own, Piunti has a

laundry list of accomplishments

with the Knights from

earning all-area team honors

twice to advancing to the Illinois

High School Association

state competition his sophomore

through senior years.

The key to his success, he

said, is staying healthy.

“He gave me a four-seamer right down the middle, and I

put a good swing on it. It was the first time I hit a home

run with a wood bat. It’s exciting, too, because I did it

with varsity.”

“What you put in your

body affects you,” Piunti said.

“If you put junk in your body,

you’ll wrestle like junk.”

He and his team also received

a lot of motivation

from their coaches to put in

the right amount of work to

stay in shape. But the biggest

things he will remember are

not the accomplishments, but

the moments with his teammates,

Piunti said.

“Freshman year, the guys

aren’t as friendly, but when

sophomore year comes,

everyone is friendly,” he

said. “I’ll remember we

had a lot of tournaments

that were far away, and we

stayed in the hotels to get

close as a team. And we

would listen to stories from

the coaches about when they

TUNE IN

wrestled in high school.”

Soon, Piunti will have a

whole new team to bond with

and create new memories

with as he transitions to

college life.

He said he chose Mac-

Murray because it was close

to home, and he enjoyed the

atmosphere after visiting the

campus.

“Everyone there… teachers

and staff are the nicest

people I’ve ever talked to,”

Piunti said. “I just love the

feeling of it when I visited

campus.”

Piunti plans to study nursing

in his time in college, but

wrestling will always be a

part of his life.

“[I plan to wrestle] through

college, and then I might help

coach,” he said.

Providence volleyball

standout Katie Compagno

to join Caldwell University

Michael Ivey, Editorial Intern

Among this year’s graduating

class at Providence

Catholic High School was

Katie Compagno — a standout

member of the Celtics’

girls volleyball team that

advanced to the sectional

semifinal round of the Illinois

High School Association

Class 3A girls volleyball state

playoffs in the fall.

Now, Compagno, an Orland

Park resident, is moving

on to the next journey in

her life: playing volleyball at

Caldwell University in New

Jersey. Caldwell is a Division-II

program.

Compagno said it is a

dream come true for her to

play volleyball in college.

“I’m very excited,” she

said. “I’ve been looking forward

to it since my freshman

year. I’ve always wanted to

play in college.”

Compagno’s journey to
