Library’s $5M expansion to rely on donations

Kirsten Keller, Editor

The Lake Bluff Public Library

is inching closer to a long-awaited

addition to be put on the west

side of the library, adding space

for more seating, improved accessibility

and better acoustics.

The Library Board recently

brought on Ter Molen, Watkins

& Brandt to conduct a feasibility

study to determine whether there

are sufficient philanthropic options

to fund the $5 million project.

The board wants most of the

funding to come from donations.

“We are very aware that the financial

climate in the state of Illinois

is not great right now,” Library

Director Eric Bailey said.

“There’s certainly a lot of concern

related to property taxes,

and we’re very aware of that.”

“Right now we’re focused on

Family Vacation Photo Contest

Summer pandamonium


The Melin Family,

Lake Forest

Shasta was rescued

from a parking lot

in Georgia 14 years

ago. We think she is

a 15-year-old lab, chow and beagle mix. She is a

very calm dog now, but she once was so afraid of

water she would hide under the bed every time the

shower was turned on! She is extremely loyal and

will wait for her family outside of stores without

being tied up. She has driven cross-country twice,

and through much of Mexico and Canada. Her

puppy face means she makes friends wherever

she goes!

Over the next five

of four to five years, we

Bailey said.

The proposed expansion

will be added to the west

side of the building, jutting

off the library’s former entrance.

It will add 3,100

square feet — a 33 percent

increase to the library’s

current footprint.

A need for expansion has

been shown in a 34 percent

increase in patrons over the

past decade, according to

data from the library. More

programming, which has

increased by 27 percent

over the same time period,

is a large factor in increasing

visitors, Bailey said.

The library’s last renovation,

in 2011, combined

the entrance to both the

library and the Lake Bluff

History Museum, which

shares the building. Decades-old

carpeting was

also replaced, creating a

lighter feel to the library.

In a 2016 survey, 50 percent

of respondents said

either they’d like more

space in the library or they

requested improvements

that are not possible in the

abuse, in honor of Jordan’s


The foundation implemented

education programs

focusing on substance abuse

in middle and high schools

in Highland Park and Deerfield.

It also initiated an

anonymous “Text a Tip”

program in 2015 that allows

students to send anonymous

campaign, conducts a strategic

planning session in February

2017 and begins preparation

of next year’s budget.

Each survey sent by mail

will include a postage-paid return

envelope. Completed surveys

will be returned directly

to the consultant for anonymity,

and surveys submitted

online will also maintain complete

anonymity. The City’s

last community-wide survey,

conducted in 2011, had more

than a 20 percent response


Community members will

have a chance to rank and provide

input on:

• The quality of life in Lake

Forest — as a place to live,

raise children, work, retire

• Lake Forest characteristics,

including safety, education

and the natural environment

• City services, such as police,

fire and stormwater management

NRC will tabulate the results

and make a presentation

texts 24/7 on behalf of their

friends struggling with drug

addiction to a secure number

and receive a response from

local experts in adolescent

addiction and mental health.

The foundation has also

worked with Congress,

health care and law enforcement

professionals to reform

HIPAA privacy laws so doctors

and mental health professionals

are not afraid to

communicate openly and

disclose medical information

to the families of kids

who are being treated for

drug addiction, so they can

work together to find a solution.

The foundation’s most recent

initiative, however, has

already helped save hundreds

of lives in the Chicago

area, and one life per day in

Lake County alone, in 2016.

Sounds of the stadium

LFHS marching

band performs

at home opener

Kirsten Keller, Editor

The Scouts took the field

for the first time of the season

on Friday, Sept. 2 —

not only those with shoulder

pads and helmets, but

those with lyres and instruments.

Per tradition, the Lake

Forest High School marching

band, a combination of

approximately 120 players

in Wind Ensemble and

Symphonic Band, played

the Lake Forest High

School fight song and the

national anthem during

pregame. Halftime included

two pieces chosen

by students that will rotate

each home game.

The band marched into

an “LF” formation during

halftime, a set that is new

this year, said assistant director

Brian O’Connor.

During an Aug. 31 rehearsal

prior to the home

opener, Megan Mc-

Cabe conducted the band

through classics “Walking

on Sunshine” and “Brown

Eyed Girls.”

“I love the energy everyone

has,” said the senior

who is in her second year

as drum major, a role she

shares with junior Kristen


Coughlan is entering her

first year as drum major.

She, like McCabe, used to

play flute in the band.

“This leadership role is

a whole new important experience,”

Coughlan said.

The band will next perform

at the Homecoming

game on Sept. 23.

Deer Path Middle School-West

appoints new assistant principal

Danielle Gensburg

Freelance Reporter

Mike Field

has been appointed


the new assistant


at Deer

Path Middle

School-West Field

in Lake Forest.

Field is a 12-year educator,

with experience both

in and out of the classroom

working with administrators,

teachers and students

in the areas of social studies

and technology.

“What I enjoy most

about education is connecting

with people — teachers

and students — and learning

about their passions and

finding ways in which I can

help support them in furthering

their passions and

truly becoming great learners,”

Field said.

The Lake Forest Elementary

School District

67 Board of Education appointed

Field for the position

this summer. He will

replace Paul Suminski,

who recently accepted a

position as the new principal

of Lincoln Middle

School in Mount Prospect.

“Mr. Field comes to

District 67 and Deer Path

Middle School with wellrounded

experiences in education,

and from those who

know him both personally

and professionally, we are

very fortunate to have him

join our staff,” DeVore said

in a press release issued by

District 67 in late August.

Field has an extensive

background in education,

having worked at IC Catholic

Prep in Elmhurst, Ill., for

seven years, the first three

as a social studies teacher

and coach and the last four

as social studies department

chair; Loyola Academy in

Wilmette for three years,

where he taught social studies

classes and worked as

an instructional technology

leader, helping teachers

learn how to use and

benefit from technology in

the classroom; and Glenbrook

High School District

225 in Glenview and Northbrook,

where he worked

mainly with administrators

and teachers as director of

instructional technology

and shaped how the district

implemented technology in

the classroom.

Field said that after

working in Glenbrook

High School District 225’s

administrative office, he

missed being in a school

building and engaging directly

with both students

and teachers. So, when he

was offered the assistant

principal position at Deer

Path Middle School-West,

he gladly accepted.

“I knew that being in a

building and connecting

with teachers and students

was one of the reasons why

I got into education in the

first place,” Field said.

Wood for good

LFHS seniors craft

boards to fund

college education

Alan P. Henry

Freelance Reporter

Walt Disney was once

asked what it takes to

kickstart a career as a successful

entrepreneur. His

answer: “The way to get

started is to quit talking

and begin doing.”

Lake Forest High

School seniors Jack Armstrong

and Matthew Barrett,

friends since second

grade, began channeling

that advice three years

ago, when they took over

operation of the school’s

football and basketball

concessions stands.

This summer, the pair

of 17-year-old budding

entrepreneurs kicked it

up another notch, creating

Boards for Education.

Building on skills they

learned in wood shop class

in ninth grade, the pair

makes high-end, affordable

wood cutting boards,

butcher blocks and trays.

“We’ve always loved

woodworking,” Armstrong

said. “People always like

cutting boards. Everyone

has them in their home. We

realized we could make a

business out of this.”

The boards, which can

be either end grain or

edge grain, are crafted

from varying combinations

of walnut, cherry,

oak, maple, paducah from

Africa, purple heart from

South America, and Honduran

and African mahogany.

Much of their

wood is purchased from

Owl Hardwood Lumber in

Des Plaines. Products are

priced between $20 and

$165. Similar high-quality

Jack Armstrong (left) and Matthew Barrett, seniors at

Lake Forest High School, sell wood cutting boards to

help fund their college education. Alan P. Henry/22nd

Century Media

boards cost substantially

more in stores.

To date, they have netted

a profit of about $2,500,

selling the boards at fairs

and farmers markets.

From Sept. 4-5, they will

be selling new designs

at the Lake Forest-Lake

Bluff Artisan Guild Fall

Fair in downtown Lake


Each plans to use those

profits to help fund their

college education.

“Our entire lives, our

parents have instilled in us

the value of hard work,”

said Barrett, who serves

on the executive committee

for the National Honor

Society, helps coordinate

volunteer opportunities

for students and is in the

squash club.

In college, he hopes to

study construction management

or mechanical

engineering. His college

choices are currently Wisconsin-Madison,


University, Vanderbilt

and Northwestern.

Like Barrett, Armstrong

has a strong work ethic.

“I am working for what

I have. I am entitled to absolutely

nothing,” he said.

Armstrong is casting a

college eye eastward toward

College of William

and Mary, College of the

Holy Cross and George

Washington University.

He is involved with Young

Idea, the school art and

literary magazine, Model

United Nations, freshman

mentoring and the squash

club. He is incoming captain

of the varsity tennis

team, on which he has

played for four years, and

he plays in USTA tournaments

as well. He is also a

volunteer for Cong. Robert


Both Barrett and Armstrong

are writing their

college essays on their

experiences operating

Boards of Education.

“I’ve learned it’s not

about the money I’ve

made,” Armstrong said.

“It’s about the stories I’ve

shared with people, the

connections I’ve made and

the relationships I have

Apps and the

FAFSA, oh my.

Early action, early decision,


Are you with me? If

not, I won’t be offended.

If you’re still here, you are

probably parents of high

school seniors.

It seems wherever I

turn — Sunset, the library,

Starbucks and even Facebook

— fellow parents are

talking about the college

application process and

how many arguments

are taking place in their

households due to all the


Parents of grown

children say things like

“Don’t worry, you’ll

figure it out.” Parents of

recent high school graduates

give you a look of

empathy and yes, even

pity. While the reasonable

part of me understands

this, it can still be a challenge

when going through

this the first time.

Remember when we

parent folk applied to

college back in 1987? We

took the ACT once, met

with our counselor, sent

in a few applications and

waited for the mail.

It’s not as simple now.

To help better understand

this realm of college

crazy, Hubs and I attended

Lake Forest High School’s

senior parent college application

workshop last


Friends, Lake Foresters,

moms and dads: Go

to these meetings. Read

the handouts. It helps. So.

Much. There are a few

key pieces I took away

from the seminar.

The first is if you are an

organizational freak, or

even a wannabe organizational

freak (me!), it will

serve you well to learn a

little bit about college applications

the spring/summer

before your kiddo is

a senior. Become familiar

with the vernacular, have

an understanding of application

deadlines and email

your kiddos’ counselor to

fill in the blanks.

Go to the seminars the

high school offers. They

provide a detailed list of

information, deadlines and


Next? Have a chat, not

a talk or lecture or discussion

— a chat — with

your kiddo about what the

process will entail. Just

because you have a chat

does NOT, I repeat, does

NOT guarantee you will

be heard or your guidelines


They want to be seniors.

They don’t want to think

about the Common App.

This is when we choose

to trust them. They will

learn to be their own

administrators, fill out

applications and learn the

importance of a deadline.

We will need to proofread

their essays and applications.

We may need

to ask them about deadlines

and help keep them

on track.

And please, someone

tell me how to do this

without starting an argument?!

Sometimes it’s

so easy, and sometimes I

say something as simple

as “Hey did you get a

response from...?” and I’m

met with a growl, an eye

roll and an “Oh my gosh,

why are you always ON


This is the tough part.

We need to be patient.

Because with every eye

roll our procrastinationsavvy

teenagers gives us

there lies a nervous little

kid embarking on the rest

of his or her life. These

kids have one foot out the

door and one foot firmly

planted at home. While

they talk a great game and

DO want to get out on

their own, they’re scared.

Let’s all take a deep

breath. Let’s make a pact

to hang tight and guide

our kiddos through this

process with patience and

maybe even some dignity.

In just five months, we

will be wearing new

college sweatshirts and

breathing sighs of relief.

These senior days may

be long, but gosh this

year will be short. Let’s

enjoy every moment

with our college-bound

babies — the good, the

yucky and the annoying.

Let’s breathe together, and

watch them bloom.

Nina Vallone lives in Lake

Forest with her Hubs, two

teenagers and her dog, Coco.

she talks about: life, love and

the pursuit of getting up after

falling, repeatedly.

Cut pollution, install solar


As Lake Forest develops

its sustainability plan, promoting

solar energy can

help move the community

into the future of environmental

friendliness. With

the continuing popularity

of nuclear and coal energy

as a power source, the atmosphere

is being polluted

and ecosystems are being

destroyed. Solar energy is

a renewable energy source

that solves this problem.

Solar energy is a successful

and low-cost economic

investment for our community.

Solar energy is primarily

used to create electricity

in two different ways:

photovoltaic reactions

and solar-thermal heating.

Photovoltaics is the direct

conversion of light into

electricity at the atomic

level. Solar-thermal heating,

on the other hand, uses

mirrors to focus sunlight

into a boiler. The boiler

creates steam, which powers

turbines. Photovoltaics

monly done in solar fields.

Carol Olson, a researcher

at the Energy Research

Center of the Netherlands,

stated in an article in The

New York Times, “Solar

photovoltaic energy (PV)

contributes 96-98 percent

less greenhouse gases than

a 100 percent coal provider.”

In addition, PV uses

86-89 percent less water,

occupies 80 percent less

space, is 95 percent less

toxic to humans and contributes

92-97 percent less

to acid rain. From these

percentages, the benefits

of solar, photovoltaic power

outweigh nuclear and

coal power tremendously.

Since solar panels are

small and can be placed on

top of houses and buildings,

they can even be used

in urban areas like Chicago.

According to the U.S.

Environmental Protection

Agency, “Air emissions

associated with generating

electricity from solar

technologies are negligible

because no fuels are combusted

... In [the case of solar-thermal


the water can be reused

after it has been condensed

from steam back into water.”

The abundance of

light photons hitting the

earth is also unlimited, because

“173,000 terawatts

of solar energy strikes the

earth continuously, which

is 10,000 times the world’s

total energy use.”

Solar energy is also inexpensive.

In an article in

The Wall Street Journal,

Cowen and Company, a

financial and investment

company, stated that “In

2008, the average cost of

a solar module was $3.95

a watt ... far above today’s

level.” Excess energy produced

can even be sold to

energy companies, resulting

in even greater savings.

It is time for our community

to prevent climate

change and support the

development and construction

of solar energy


I hope the community

takes my letter into consideration

and encourages

the City of Lake Forest to

install solar panels around

town. Clean energy and

sustainability go hand in

hand. If the community

moves forward with one, it

should move forward with

the other.

Labor of love

Artists come from

afar to display art

in annual show

Erin Yarnall

Freelance Reporter

While many Lake Forest

residents were able to

kick back and enjoy a day

off on Labor Day, more

than 180 artists worked

all day to promote and

sell their craft at the 62nd

annual Art Fair on the


The fair was hosted by

the Deerpath Art League

and took over downtown

Lake Forest, as streets

were shut down in Market

Square to accommodate

the numerous tents where

artists of all varieties

displayed and sold their


“Having Art Fair on

the Square in historic

Market Square puts us

apart from other art fairs,”

said Jillian Chapman, the

co-chair of Art Fair on

the Square. “Having an

outdoor art fair always

has its challenges, but it

truly has been wonderful

to keep this long tradition


The art was judged by

three art professionals

throughout the event,

which took place Sept.

4-5 and coincided with

the Lake Forest-Lake

Bluff Artisan Guild Fall


Chapman and some of

the artists agree that one

of the aspects of the fair

that has made it successful

for the past six decades

is their focus on the art


“Our fair is mainly

about the art,” Chapman


Mary Jacquin, an artist

from Peoria, Ill., agreed,

and said it’s refreshing

to be at an art fair where

attendees didn’t have to

decide between “spending

their money on a beer or


“A lot of art shows try

to be all things to all people,”

Jacquin said.

Instead, at Art Fair on

the Square, a vast majority

of the tents were occupied

by the artists themselves,

with a few tents scattered

throughout the downtown

area serving food by Frost

Gelato and Popcorn Jester

of Highland Park and

Bangkok Tokyo of Lake

Bluff. The event also

provided acoustic music,

which became difficult

to hear once attendees

began to walk away from

it, allowing their full

attention to be on the art


Because of the circular

layout of the fair, it became

more of a festivallike

experience, as participants

were able to circle

around and “meander,”

according to glass artist

Nicole Fierce, who drove

from Minneapolis to take

part in the fair.

Fierce has been working

with glass for six

years after taking it up as

a hobby and this was her

first time participating in

Art Fair on the Square.

“I drove here just for

this,” Fierce said.

She has participated

in art fairs and shows for

four to five years in Minnesota

but says Art Fair

on the Square sticks out

among the others because

of how the artists are


“As artists, one of the

things we pay attention

Michelle Harris, of Powell, Ohio, displays her assemblage art jewelry at Art Fair on

the Square in Lake Forest on Sept. 4. Photos by Claire Esker/22nd Century Media

to is how we’re treated as

guests,” Fierce said. “I’d

say we’ve been treated

very well.”

Some of the more

popular stands at the fair

were ones with localized

art, including oil paintings

of Wrigley Field by

Thomas V. Trausch, a

painter from Woodstock,

Ill. Other art for sale included

jewelry, clothing,

sculptures, paintings and

even baskets made out of

gourds, created by Rosie

and Dave Claus of Off the

Vine Gourds.

While the art itself was

enough to make for a large

turnout at the festival, the

great weather all weekend

didn’t hurt either.

“The nice weather

brought me out,” said

Paul Isaacson, a Wilmette

resident who had never attended

the festival before.

“I’ve really enjoyed the

mixture of art.”

Whether for the food,

weather or the wide variety

of different pieces of

art, people turned out in

droves to attend the event.

“People come here for

multiple reasons,” Fierce

said, “which I think is really

beneficial for us as

In Memoriam

Janet Artac

Janet K. Artac, 76, passed away

on Aug. 12, surrounded by her loving


Artac was born in Waukegan

on March 8, 1940, to Adolph and

Helen (nee Kenar) Turnovec. She

was educated in the schools of

Waukegan and graduated from

Waukegan East in 1957. She then

attended Miller’s School of Beauty

and graduated as a hair beautician in

1958. Artac worked in Libertyville,

Lake Bluff and Lake Forest beauty

shops. When she was 14 years old

she met her sweetheart David and

they went together until they married

on Sept. 23, 1961, at St. Joseph

Church in Waukegan. She and her

husband had three sons, Todd, Jay

(died in 2009) and Jeff and lived in

Waukegan for 28 years before moving

to Winthrop Harbor, Ill. After

her sons graduated from school she

began working in Lake Forest for

estates of the wealthy for 30 years

and retired in 2014. She loved her

wooded backyard and wildlife of

all kinds; including deer, raccoons,

and rabbits, she also loved feeding

the birds, squirrels, and chipmunks

in her flowered yard. Artac especially

loved her many cats, including

her current companion Jack as

well as her lovable dog Toto who

she walked every morning while

she fed the wildlife in her backyard.

She had the most lovable times with

her granddaughters Sofia and Julia,

cooking and reading, taking them

shopping and to parks because Jan

put more importance on her family

than her working career. She is survived

by her husband David; sons

Todd (Kim) of Carol Beach, Wis.,

and Jeff; former daughter-in-law

Anne Iacubino of Lake Bluff; grand

daughters Sofia and Julia; her sister

Elaine (Oscar) Dahl of Northbrook

and many nieces and nephews. She

would have wonderful parties and

light up the room with her smile and

laughter and she was dearly loved

by her family and friends. She will

be missed very very much by all

who knew her and loved her.

George Caldwell

George B. Caldwell, a resident

of Lake Forest for 55 years, passed

away peacefully in his sleep on

Aug. 21. He was a loving husband

to his wife, Phoebe, and a devoted

father to his four children, Carrie

(Orest) Kramarczuk, G. James

(Sarah) Caldwell, Amy J. Caldwell

and David M. (Dawn) Caldwell.

Caldwell was devoted to his 12

grandchildren and planned many

special vacations that were specifically

for them. Throughout

his life he enjoyed and supported

the YMCA Camp du Nord in Ely,

Minn. He was a graduate of Cornell

College in Iowa and later served on

the college board. He completed

his graduate work in Hospital Administration

at the University of

Iowa. After a residency at Rockford

Hospital in Rockford he served for

12 years as president of Lake Forest

Hospital. His last position was

president and CEO of Lutheran

part of Advocate Health. He finished

his professional career consulting

in the health care field. A

memorial service will be held at 11

a.m. on Oct. 7 at First Presbyterian

Church of Lake Forest, 700 North

Sheridan Road. In lieu of flowers,

direct memorials to YMCA Camp

du Nord, 30 South Ninth Street,

Minneapolis, Minn.

LF College student to present

women’s suffrage lecture

Submitted by Lake Forest-Lake

Bluff Historical Society

The Lake Forest-Lake

Bluff Historical Society presents

the culmination of this

summer’s Leslie T. Chapman

Museum Internship: a

free lecture on Wednesday,

Sept. 14, exploring the local

history of women’s suffrage,

presented by intern Sonya

Sindberg. The program will

take place at 7 p.m. in Meyer

Auditorium at Lake Forest


Over the past few months,

Sindberg, a history major

at Lake Forest College, has

carefully dug through Lake

Forest newspapers, club minutes,

scrapbooks and City

Council notes to construct a

picture of how 19th century

Lake Forest interacted with

the women’s suffrage movement.

“At such a local level

[women’s suffrage] has not

gotten much academic attention,”

Sindberg said.

Sindberg challenges previous

works with a deeper investigation

of the topic. She

proposes that Lake Forest

women across many generations

played an active and often

critical role in women’s

rights movements.

She will present on four

Lake Forest women in particular:

Anna Farwell, Annie

Patrick Hillis, Alice Hixon

and Mary Louisa Ayer.

“To be able to know these

women is a privilege I would

like to share,” Sindberg said.

The Leslie T. Chapman

Taco Lago spices up Wilmette’s Plaza del Lago

Eric DeGrechie

Managing Editor

Talk to Tim Lenon about

the restaurant industry and

he’ll be quick to mention

taquerias and communal

dining are all the rage.

The longtime local restaurateur,

who owns Fuel

Wilmette and was a former

partner at Wilmette’s

Nick’s Neighborhood Bar

& Grill, decided to combine

the two trends when

he opened Taco Lago earlier

this year. Located in

the Plaza del Lago shopping

center, 1545 Sheridan

Road, Wilmette, Taco

Lago prides itself on “providing

locally sourced

food crafted with love,”

according to its tagline.

“The space was perfect

for what I wanted,” said

Lenon, a native of Lake

Geneva, Wis., on choosing

to open at Plaza del

Lago. “It was a store that

had a bunch of wood in it

already. My whole concept

was to have a place where

everything was reused and


All of the furniture in

Taco Lago was made from

artisan display cases. The

rest of the space was refurbished

and a kitchen was


A group of 22nd Century

Media editors recently

stopped into the establishment

to chat with Lenon

and try some of Taco Lago’s


Chef Armando Esquivel,

who moonlights in the

same role at Fuel, grew up

cooking Mexican food and

his attention to every authentic

detail is evident in

the menu choices.

The al pastor taco with marinated pork shoulder, grilled

pineapple, onion and cilantro ($9) is a bestseller at

Taco Lago, 1545 Sheridan Road, Wilmette. Courtney

Jacquin/22nd Century Media

“Tacos are food for everybody,”

Lenon said. “It’s

healthy food and there’s

a value there. You don’t

have to live on the lake to

eat here.”

After placing your order

at a large counter in the

front of the restaurant, the

next step is to find a seat,

as your food will be delivered

to you. Taco Lago

features communal seating

throughout the restaurant,

which Lenon said makes it

the first of its kind in Wilmette.

“You can sit with your

neighbor, sit with your

friends or sit with someone

you don’t know,” Lenon

said. “You get to know

people that are in your


Chips and salsa are complimentary,

but should definitely

not be just pushed

aside. The salsas — verde,

roja and de mango — are

homemade with varying

degrees of hotness.

As you’re eating your

food, make sure to look

around. The restaurant

walls feature colorful work

from area artists, including

a popular graffiti artist

from Chicago.

The tacos al pastor ($9)

— one of the restaurant’s

bestsellers — are tacos

filled with marinated pork

shoulder spit roasted with

grilled pineapples, onion

and cilantro.

Other tacos on the menu

include hamburgesa ($7),

de pollo (chicken) ($7),

de pescado (fish) ($9), and

carne asada (steak) ($9).

For the vegetarian eater,

the tacos de vejetarianos

($6) include baby romaine,

carrots, celery, jalapeno,

zucchini, avocado and

pico de gallo. Each taco

order comes with two tacos,

but there is no mixing

and matching unless you

want to upgrade your order

to a taco platter ($12.95).

How long have you been playing

tennis and how did you get started

with it?

I played when I was younger and then

stopped to do horseback riding and then

picked tennis back up again because my

older sister was on the team. Watching

her play made me want to play more.

What is on your pre-match


Pump up songs like Akon, Miley

Cyrus, Chainsmokers and some old, classic

tunes too.

What do you eat before a match?

Normally fruit like an apple, vegetables,

not too many carbs. Just something

light that gives you energy.

Who is your favorite athlete?

I really like Michael Phelps but also

(Novak) Djkovic and Venus and Serena


What is your dream job?

I would love to work for a magazine

doing stories where I’d go out and try

something and write about it.

If you could travel anywhere in the

world, where would you go?

Africa. I’ve always wanted to go on a

safari, that’s my dream.

If you could have any superpower,

what would you choose?

The ability to breathe under water. I

really like the ocean and I would like to

be able to breathe under water and swim.

I’ve been snorkeling before with my


What’s the most challenging aspect

of playing tennis?

photo Submitted

The mental side, for sure. Sometimes

I start getting down on myself but once I

tell myself it’s just one point, keep going,

I just have a better attitude and I just

make my shots more and have an easier

time winning. So keeping my compure as

well is the most challenging.

What’s the best coaching advice

you’ve ever received?

Coach Denise (Murphy) always says

you get what you give and you practice

how you’ll play in a match, so we always

work as hard as we can in practice.

If you’re working as hard as you can in

practice, that’s what you’ll get on the

court, especially with conditioning too.

We do a ton of conditioning but you can

see that in our conditioning.

What’s the best part of being an

athlete at LFHS?

The team aspect. It’s nice having

people from different grades, different

friend groups all coming together on one

team. I’ve met so many people and made

so many friends playing tennis (here).

Lake Forest 174, Warren


The Scouts defeated Warren

by seven strokes during

a match on Thursday,

Last week was a pretty

stellar one for Melanie

Walsh and company.

Lake Forest beat the

defending state champion

New Trier Trevians 3-2

in overtime on Aug. 27,

avenging their loss in the

state semifinals last season

in the process.

The Scouts next matchup

against Glenbrook

South on Aug. 31 went a

bit smoother. Lake Forest

held the Titans scoreless

for 59 minutes and won


“We are playing beautifully

right now,” Lake

Forest coach Melanie

Walsh, “We have a lot

of players contributing.

My message to the team

was it was a great team

win. With 16 seniors, it is

hard to spread the wealth

sometimes, but we have

been playing great lately.”

Lake Forest’s Grace

Payne put the Scouts

ahead one goal after only

two minutes of play.

Payne lifted a shot that

missed a sea of Titan defenders

and found the

back of the net.

It was the first goal

given up by the Titans in

the regular season but the

Scouts didn’t stop there.

They used their depth

to attack the Titan defense

with five different

Scouts registering a goal

or more. Olivia Douglass

scored twice while Libby

Thompson, Madden Plante,

Olivia Douglas, Sarah

Considine and Sophie

Metzger all tallied.

The Scouts gained success

offensively thanks to

the corners they earned.

“Corners are huge for

us,” Walsh said. “We have

scored three goals off corners

this season, which is

already more than we did

last year. We really have

been working on them.

We have had trouble with

them in the past, and it is

good to have some early


The Lake Forest defense

was stifling as well,

giving the Titans fits as

they tried to gain possession.

possession throughout

the game.

“We really try to shorten

the field,” Walsh said.

the last 25 yards.

Girls Volleyball

Scouts have makings for special season

Derek Wolff, Sports Editor

Molly Grzesik walked

into the competition gym

at Lake Forest High School

in 2015 and couldn’t believe

her luck.

She inherited a talented

and veteran-laden team,

coaching the Scouts to a

30-7 mark in her first season

at the helm that included

a trip to a regional title


A year later, the Scouts

(4-0) returned nine seniors,

five of six starters

and have dominated their

opposition in the early goings,

dusting Evanston to

the tune of 25-14, 25-17

on Thursday, Sept. 1 from


Lake Forest has gone to

a third set just once in its

first four games, putting

teams away with flurries of

creative combination play,

hardline serves and a commitment

to conditioning

that helps the Scouts win

long points. All three were

on display in the win over


“We’ve really been focusing

a lot on conditioning

and working out more

this year,” Grzesik said.

“We’ve had some tough

workouts and the girls

have admitted they’ve

been enjoying them. That

helps us stay a little more

focused and helps us know

we have the fitness to win

some of those long points.”

Evanston rallied from

down 2-0 to take a 3-2 lead

early in the first set but a

kill from right-side hitter

Ashley Williams immediately

evened the score for

the Scouts, who regained

the lead on the next point

and never relinquished it.

Williams finished with

15 kills on the night and

had 58 through her first

four games of the season.

The Scouts went on a

tear in the middle of the

set, running the score up

to 16-7 after a series of

kills from Williams, who

added an ace on a booming

overhand serve. Defensive

specialist Mia Lanzilotti

added one of her aces in

the match as well.

Evanston battled back

to a 21-12 deficit but the

Scouts took over from

there, winning four of the

last six points for the 25-

14 opening set victory.

The second set saw the

teams trade early leads before

Lake Forest went on a

run in the middle to take a

19-14 advantage, punctuated

by a diving save near

the Scouts bench by setter

Emma Patlovich that kept

the ball in play and enabled

Lake Forest to win a

long rally.

Grzesik praised her

team’s ability to stay mentally

focused and upbeat

after winning the opening

set to put teams away in

the second.

“They have the confidence

and whenever we

get in situations where

Game 2 gets a little tight

this year, they’re like,

‘That’s OK, we’ve got

this’ and they stay in control

and stay focused the

whole match,” Grzesik

said. “That’s been huge

experience this year.”

Patlovich finished the

match with 25 assists and

two aces, while libero

Brigid Brennan led the defense

with 12 digs. Outside

hitter Meghan McGrail

added nine kills and two

aces, while middle hitter

Claire Torkelson had three

Lake Forest’s Meghan McGrail lines up a serve during

match. Derek Wolff/22nd Century Media

kills and was a force at the

net alongside Williams,

adding one block.

On Friday, the Scouts

traveled to Champaign

Centennial High School to

play in a tournament before

taking on New Trier

this Friday.

Grzesik said the trip

helped the team in more

ways than one.

“We go down there and

they really get some team

bonding and I think that’s

huge,” she said. “Girls

kind of have to like each

other to play well and

these girls really get along

and that goes a long way.

“It’s really nice to go

down to Champaign and

play some different teams.

Sometimes around here

when you go to the same

tournaments you see the

same teams over and over

so it’s nice to see what

volleyball looks like all

around the state.”

coach Denise Murphy and

features a younger squad

this season, like Highland

“They’re really great,

‘We need to be better’

Scouts survive Vikings

in wild overtime thriller

Derek Wolff, Sports Editor

Amid the jubilation of the winning

scoring drive after Gabe

Funk plunged into the endzone

for his second rushing touchdown

of the night was the overwhelming

sense that it shouldn’t have

come down to that.

Lake Forest (2-0) needed overtime

but held off Niles North (0-

2), 29-26, in the Scouts first home

game of the season on Friday,

Sept. 2.

Head coach Chuck Spagnoli

didn’t pull any punches postgame

after Lake Forest committed 10

penalties and blew a 15-0 lead.

“Ultimately we need to worry

about the result but we have to

correct the problems for us to be

as good as we can be,” Spagnoli

said. “We want to be a great team;

we don’t want to be a team that

just hangs on, that makes mistakes

and hurts ourselves, puts

ourselves in bad positions. That’s

just not what this program is

about. We need to be better.”

Niles North kicker Nick Mihalic

put on a show throughout the

night to get the visitors back into

the game. Trailing 23-17 in the

fourth quarter, Mihalic converted

on a field goal from 45 yards. On

the ensuing kickoff, the Vikings

successfully recovered his onside

attempt before their drive set him

up with a 47 yard field goal try.

Mihalic’s boot proved true

once more as the ball sailed

through the uprights, tying the

game at 23-23.

On the next kickoff, Lake Forest

returner Liam Pooler fumbled

the ball twice near the five yard

line but scooped it up and got

some help from his blockers en

route to a 59 yard return that set

the Scouts up in Vikings territory

with a few minutes remaining.

Quarterback Charlie Reinkemeyer

was sacked on third and

15, forcing the Scouts to punt.

As the team’s punter as well, he

watched the ensuing snap sail

over his head into Lake Forest

territory, where he had to scramble

back and fall on the ball, issuing

the turnover on downs.

The Vikings’ drive set Mihalic

up to kick what could have been

the game-winning field goal with

less than 90 seconds remaining,

but his 33-yard attempt missed

wide left. It was his only miss in

five tries on the night.

The Scouts received the ball

with 1:19 remaining in the fourth

quarter and killed most of the

clock before punting. A kneel

down from the Vikings set up

overtime, where Niles North received

the ball to start.

After a loss of two on first

down, Vikings quarterback Andrew

Francis hit favorite wideout

Lucas Suycott for nine yards

along the left sideline, setting up

third and goal from the Scouts

3-yard line. Lake Forest stuffed

Vikings running back Bruno

Prosper Kanam’s rush, setting up

a 23 yard field goal from Mihalic

that gave the Vikings the temporary

26-23 lead.

Lake Forest benefited from a

pass interference call before Funk

rumbled into the endzone on a

third down try from the Vikings

1-yard line for the winning score.

Funk’s second touchdown of the

evening was Lake Forest’s third

rushing touchdown on the night,

a welcome return to form after the

ground game did little in a Week 1

victory over Glenbard East.

Lake Forest used a running

back by committee approach,

with five Scouts recording handoffs

from Reinkemeyer. Pooler

rushed for 46 yards on six carries,

while Funk had six yards on four

carries with the two touchdowns.

Evan Swint was the feature back

on the night, rushing for 80 yards

on 15 carries, including a 21-yard

touchdown up the left sideline

that gave the Scouts a 7-0 lead

after an extra point from Andrew

Athenson with 10:50 left in the

second quarter.

Reinkemeyer had an uneven

night, going 14-24 for 144 yards

and one touchdown, a 19-yard

strike to Ryan Cekay in the second

quarter. Reinkemeyer executed

a two point conversion

successfully after a dump-off

pass to Liam Pooler, making it

15-0 Scouts with 7:58 left in the

second quarter.

Trailing 15-10, Vikings defensive

back Dakarii Pruitt picked

off Reinkemeyer near the Lake

Forest sideline and returned the

ball 57 yards for the score, Niles

North’s first of two leads on the


But the Lake Forest quarterback

bounced back, getting a crucial

conversion on fourth down

on the next drive and ultimately

set up Funk’s first touchdown

score. After another successful

two point conversion the Scouts

led, 23-17.

Spagnoli was pleased with the

bounceback from Reinkemeyer.

“Our goal is never to hang our

head or feel sorry for ourselves

and I don’t think he did anything

like that,” Spagnoli said.

“He knew he made a mistake.

We trusted him enough where a

couple of those fourth downs we

threw it and he made plays. The

reason we’re successful is because

he’s the quarterback so we have to

have him thinking the right way

for us to have any chance.”

As the head defensive coach,

Spagnoli knows his unit will need

to be better next week on the road

at Stevenson.

“If you let them score, you

didn’t do a very good job, it’s a

simple concept,” he said. “Your

job is to keep them from scoring

and we gave up some plays where

we lost containment or lost coverage.

There’s plenty of responsibility

to be shared in this whole

situation, good and bad. I’m sure

every kid is happy that we won

but they all know there’s a long

road ahead.”
