Orland School D135 Board of Education

Professional development,

grading scale updates are

in their early stages still

Lennan II

from the upper $200’s

Meredith Dobes

Freelance Reporter

Improving grading and

professional development

practices for efficiency,

cost effectiveness and clarity,

respectively, were the

primary focuses of the Orland

School District 135

Board of Education’s Sept.

26 meeting.

Director of Curriculum

Dave Snyder gave brief

presentations on both topics.

He said he and his team

did an analysis on the district’s

current professional

development practices,

brainstormed new ideas

and compared current practices

to those of other districts.

This past school year, the

district spent $165,802 on

professional development

sessions during school

days, including the costs of

substitute teachers, Snyder

said. This was in addition

to the total cost of summer

professional development

sessions — which teachers

were paid to attend — of

$89,664.

Snyder said the summer

costs were entirely covered

by Title I and II grants from

the State.

Snyder and his team

looked into other options

for the district’s future

professional development,

including remote learning

— such as video clips, for

example — through which

each certified staff member

would be required to

complete eight hours of

this training per year. This

would cost the district

$77,048 each year, he said.

Another option discussed

was early release days.

Snyder said some local

districts have these days as

often as once a month for

teacher professional development.

Some plan early

release days before institute

days or for a Friday

before a Monday holiday.

Snyder said D135 would

require approximately twoand-a-half

hours of professional

development every

other month, from September-May,

and if the district

implemented remote learning,

it would cut down on

the amount of time teachers

would be asked to be away

from their classrooms.

Board Member Devin

Hodge said using multiple

options for professional

development appeared to

be the most cost-effective

for the district, and Board

President Laura Berry said

she was in favor of keeping

teachers in classrooms with

their students as much as

possible.

Berry said the district

also needed to pursue what

would be “least painful”

for parents in terms of early

release days.

The district had a “robust”

calendar of professional

development days at

the beginning of the school

year, Snyder said, but it is

going back to the drawing

board to determine what

would be most efficient for

the remainder of the year.

Next, the board discussed

both its Partnership for Assessment

of Readiness for

College and Careers test results

and a possible update

to its grading system.

Assistant Director of

Curriculum Brian Fogarty

presented the district’s

PARCC results from the

previous year. The district

ranked in the 50th percentile

for the English/language

arts portion of the

test, compared to the state

average of 37 percent, and

it ranked in the 46th percentile

in math, compared

to a 32 percent state average.

Fogarty said that because

the test was different than

the spring 2015 test, it was

not useful to compare 2016

results with 2015 results.

“Making curriculum decisions

is very hard for us

to do,” he said in regard to

using test results. “We will

continue to work with local

assessments to make these

decisions.”

In the summer, it was

announced that the State

decided to do away with

PARCC testing at the high

school level, but it is still a

requirement for elementary

schools.

D135 uses Measure of

Academic Progress (or

MAP) testing to measure

student growth, as well,

and Fogarty said he is confident

this is a useful measure

for the district. It has

used the test for 15 years.

The discussion transitioned

into another brief

presentation on grading

practices from Snyder, who

said that after conferring

Orland Fire showcases safety at open house

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

Hundreds turned out for

the Orland Fire Protection

District’s annual open house

Sept. 24, held at the Training

Facility at 10728 W. 163rd

Place in Orland Park.

The event featured live

demonstrations by the firefighters,

educational stations

for adults and children to

learn about fire safety, and

various games and giveaways.

“Our goal this year was to

provide enough information

to our community on everything

that we do as a district,”

said Betsy Dine, public education

coordinator for the fire

protection district. “We have

all of our different teams out

here today. We started with

the hazmat team. We have

our dive team out here. We’re

doing a cart drill, where [firefighters]

will be doing a rescue

from the top of the building.

For instance, if someone

gets stuck on one of the water

towers, which happened just

recently, they are able to go

up and bring them down via

ropes.”

Dine said there also was a

“cause and origin” display,

as well as an obstacle course

for children.

“We wanted the kids to get

a little more interactive and

see what we have out here

[in Orland],” Dine said.

The adults got in on the

fun, as well, during the

event.

“There’s a lot to do, and

I think people also want to

know what we offer,” Dine

said. “A lot of people don’t

know that we have six stations,

and a lot of people

don’t know that we train

daily on all these different

operations.

“Our goal is to get [the

public] out here so, they can

see all the things we have.

Orland Fire looks ahead to Prevention Week

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

As the Orland Fire Protection

District gears up for

Fire Prevention Week Oct.

9-15, Battalion Chief Nick

Cinquepalmi shared some

fire safety tips Sept. 24

during the district’s annual

open house.

• Make sure you have

working smoke detectors

in your home “October is a

great month as a reminder,”

he said. “As you move your

clocks back, we always say

We are super-lucky that we

have the amount of people

we [do] to take care of them

if there is an emergency.”

Pat and Dreama Rafferty

attended the event because

they have a family member

in the Orland Fire Protection

District.

“We love our service

men,” Dreama said, adding

that the event also was a

nice, educational day for the

children of the area.

Battalion Chief Nick

Cinquepalmi said his favorite

part of the event was the

educational aspect.

“I enjoy the fundamentals

we bring to the community,”

he said. “You look around

at all the vendors here, and

the average age group of the

children here, and everything

here is foundational for

them to learn. It doesn’t get

any better than that.”

He also pointed to the

hands-on learning displays

spread out across the training

facility to help the children

understand fire safety.

to change your smoke detector

batteries.”

• Figure out escape plans

in the event of a fire at your

home.

• Be sure children know

their address, as well as

how and when to call 911.

District’s annual open house, held Sept. 24 at the district’s Training Facility.

“There are a lot of lessons

to be taught here, and it’s

just a great event locally for

our community,” he said.

And that the educational

outreach on the part of the

fire district has paid dividends,

he said.

“We’re a very aggressive

organization when it comes

to education,” Cinquepalmi

said. “If you look at our fire

statistics, I think it is dramatically

down, because I believe

our outreach has been

so successful.”

measure of student success

after completing junior

high school is how well

they perform in their freshman

year.

Because this determination

focuses on standards,

the district is transitioning

into a standards-based system

of grading, Snyder said.

During this transition period,

a committee including

parents, administrators

and teachers is meeting

throughout the school year

to discuss grading practices.

The district also is

to update the “Grading and

Practices” page on its website

throughout the process,

Snyder said.

Snyder said the reason

for the change is to give

students, parents and teachers

a clearer picture of students’

mastery of skills. He

said the aim is to provide

“clarity and no uncertainty,”

while offering details

that parents, teachers and

high schools want to see.

From Sept. 27

Tobacco store operator from Orland Park charged with tax fraud

Thomas Czaja

Contributing Editor

The operator of a Homer

Glen tobacco store allegedly

defrauded the State

of Illinois out of more than

$400,000 in sales taxes, according

to press release issued

Sept. 26 by the Illinois

Attorney General’s Office.

Mazen M. Nassar, 38, of

Orland Park, was charged

with sales tax evasion of

over $100,000, money laundering

of over $10,000, wire

fraud and filing a fraudulent

sales tax return, all of which

are felonies, according to the

press release.

Nassar allegedly underreported

more than $5.8 million

in sales from Smokers

Expo, located at 12330 W.

143rd St. in Homer Glen,

New Cream Works for Men

in a Way Sex Pills Can’t!

New invention triples sensation and gives

overwhelming pleasure to those who use it.

Steven Wuzubia

Health Correspondent

Clearwater, Florida – Think about it. No mater

what drugs you take; If you don’t have enough

“feeling” in your penis, it’s impossible to get an

erection. The formula for great sex is simple.

The more penile feeling, the more aroused you

get, which provokes a firm and lasting erection

and a full orgasm whenever you want.

For years, men begged Dr. Yeager for a

solution that would work to end lack of penile

sensitivity. But now, his new cream promises

to give you what no other pill can… incredible

sensation, even from the slightest touch. It’s

fixing erection problems a whole new way.

The new cream makes penile sensitivity

double, even triple. So even those that have

little to no feeling at all in the penis suddenly

experience mind blowing sex again! “Even men

without E.D. problems are buying up more than

we can produce”, says Dr. Yeager.

“Many men do not feel comfortable telling

even their doctor about trouble with erections,

and a lack of feeling and pleasure during

intercourse.”

“They are too ashamed that they cant ‘make

it work’ in bed. And if this is your problem,

you’re not alone.”

These men suffer from Reduced Penile

Sensitivity (RPS). This can cause loss of

confidence, frustration, even depression and

anxiety.

Let’s face it. The inability or long wait to

reach orgasm is bad enough. But failure to

achieve a firm erection is devastating! It’s one of

the leading causes of relationship problems. And

avoiding sex often leads to a failed marriage. It

is a horrible problem.

Dr. Yeager wasn’t about to ignore the

suffering of his patients. He wanted to make a

mark and decided to do something about it.

He spent long sleepless nights locked up in

his lab ... researching every study he could get

his hands on regarding penis sensitivity and

came up with a cream that changed sexual

medicine as we know it.

He put special natural ingredients into

a cream for men and the results have been

remarkable. Men who use this cream report

much more penile feeling, arousal, sensitivity

and pleasure from their sexual intercourse.

They have less or no more difficulty in

stimulating the penis, getting and keeping a

hard erection, and achieving orgasm at the right

time.

ED pills like Viagra, Cialis and natural pills

work for many men, but men with RPS end

up taking more than directed in the hope of

increasing their penile sensitivity, and even then

they often don’t work good enough.

“A REAL MARRIAGE-CHANGER!”

“This has caused our

sex life to be like we are

teenagers again! My wife

and I are both much

happier and more satisfied.

A real life-changer! I am so glad for Dr.

Yeager’s invention to fix this problem

with no dangerous prescription drugs.”

- Robert H., West Palm Beach, FL

WHY YOU NEED IT

Reduced Penile Sensitivity (RPS) is commonly

associated with aging, diabetes, circumcision,

certain surgeries and prescription drugs.

RPS is estimated to strike over 500 million

men on a worldwide basis. Dr. Yeager states

“It’s not a man’s fault. They did nothing wrong.

They are not any less of a man. And now, men

don’t have to suffer any longer.”

HOW IT WORKS

The name of the cream Dr. Yeager invented is

SENSUM+®. Men rub the cream on their penis

twice daily for the first two weeks then once a

day for eight additional weeks. There is a nice

cinnamon smell and no residues.

The main ingredient, natural Cinnamaldehyde,

activates the TRPA1 receptor (IC50= 9.5μM).

This increases the reaction of sensory neurons

to stimulus such as warmth, cold and touch.

This activation results in more sensitivity of

You may have a different

problem than you think.

Specialist, Dr. James L. Yeager’s

invention helps men suffering

from RPS. Now you can double,

even triple your penile feeling

and sensation. The result?

MIND-BLOWING SEXUAL

SENSATION!

the penis and a pleasurable sensation.

The nutrients in this cream help you get and

keep a hard erection very easy, and also to

climax when you want to.

For example, Joe Romas, 52, from Oakland,

was not feeling any penile sensation during sex

and it took too long to ejaculate because of this.

And the lack of feeling made sex unpleasurable.

Within one week after he started applying

SENSUM+® cream, he reported, “I now have

my old feeling and pleasure back. Sex is fun

again and feels great. My wife and I are much

happier now.”

“I have full feeling and sensitivity back in my

penis. This cream has been a Godsend for me,”

raves Otto Garangton of Seattle.

SENSITIVITY AND SATISFACTION

DOUBLED, TRIPLED

Clinical studies prove SENSUM+® ends

these common male sexual problems fast and

effectively. The result of two clinical studies

on men, both circumcised and not, show

SENSUM+® more than doubled penis sensitivity

and more than tripled sexual satisfaction. (By

the way, their partner’s sexual satisfaction also

tripled.)

PRIVACY GUARANTEED

SENSUM+® is patent-pending. The product

is discretely shipped in a plain unmarked

package so privacy and confidentiality is

assured. It is for both circumcised and noncircumcised

men. No side effects or medicine

interactions have been reported.

Readers can now join thousands of other

men who have ended their sexual issues

and enjoy their sex life again like back when

they were much younger. “Its almost like a

miracle for men who want to improve their

penis feeling and performance in bed” says

Dr. Yeager.

The sooner you start using this cream, the

sooner you can have more feeling in your

penis again to get and keep a hard erection

and enjoy sex more than ever.

SENSUM+® is NOT sold in stores. No

prescription or doctor visit is required.

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

Illinois State Museum Lockport

Gallery reopens

One of the most culturally significant

locations in Lockport’s historic

downtown area has reopened

its doors to the public.

The Illinois State Museum Lockport

Gallery was closed roughly

one year ago because of State budget

concerns, but it reopened Sept.

24 as part of the Summer Art Series

festivities happening downtown

that weekend.

“Understanding that this regional

location is available again

was meaningful,” Lockport Mayor

Steve Streit said.

The ISM Lockport Gallery closed

its doors at the end of September of

this past year, when the State took

over payments of the rent from the

City of Lockport, after the City

started paying them the month before,

as previously reported by The

Lockport Legend. Since then, the

State has been in discussions with

Streit and the City of Lockport, trying

to come up with a way of sharing

the costs on which both could

agree.

Streit and the Illinois Department

of Natural Resources, which

is the controlling body of the Illinois

State Museum, were close to

working out a deal, and in an effort

to get the museum open in time for

the Summer Art Series Steampunk

Weekend, Streit asked if they could

finally make it happen.

FROM THE NEW LENOX PATRIOT

Pant for the Pantry 5K looks to

continue success in sixth year

Paul Slade, chairman and CEO

of Old Plank Trail Community

Bank, wanted to address feeding

the hungry — “the most basic

need” — when starting a community

fundraising event five years

ago.

“It started off something personal

with me, in that I think if you’re

a senior or perhaps part of a young

family, and you’re not real sure

how you’re going to feed yourself

or your family, I can’t think of a

more stressful or terrifying moment,”

Slade said. “It was the most

basic need of all. There’s not shortage

of great causes out there, but

the ability to feed either yourself

or your family, it seemed like the

most immediate need that we could

make an impact on.”

Since the inception of the Pant

for the Pantry 5K in 2011, Old

Plank Trail Community Bank has

donated more than $50,000 and

thousands of pounds in canned

goods to New Lenox Township’s

food pantry.

On Oct. 16, Slade expects another

showing of more than 300 runners

at this year’s race, which starts

at 8 a.m. at the bank, 280 Veterans

Parkway in New Lenox.

For runners 14 and younger, the

early registration fee is $10 — $15

on race day — and comes with a

race shirt. However, those 14 and

younger with a registered adult are

allowed to participate for free.

For those ages 15-17, early registration

is $15, $20 on race day.

For adults 18 and older, early fees

are $30, $35 on race day.

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Mokena to be new home to gokart

track, Holiday Inn Express

Two major infrastructure projects

were formally approved Sept.

26 at the Village of Mokena Board

of Trustees meeting.

As part of its consent agenda,

trustees voted 6-0 to approve site

and development plans for Accelerate

Indoor Speedway and Holiday

Inn Express.

“This is going to be approximately

6,400 square feet,” Village

Administrator John Tomasoski said

of Accelerate. “It is going to be an

indoor, electric go-kart [facility]

with a restaurant and bar. It will be

located on Spring Lake Drive next

to Rasmussen College. I think it’s

an excellent location along the I-80

corridor to attract customers near

and far, and to become a destination

point.”

Tomasoski said Holiday Inn Express

will have 96 rooms and four

floors.

“All said, it is going to be a catalyst

for development on both corridors

of LaGrange [Road] and 191st

[Street], and the anchor of our Meridian

Centre going forward, which

is on the southwest corner of [those

streets],” he said.

Tomasoski said both projects

are expected to break ground this

fall and be completed sometime in

2017.

Good candidates needed for three OPPL

Board seats

Good people are needed to run for

three Orland Park Public Library Board

seats that will be up for election in

April 2017.

Candidates’ petition paperwork

should be filed between Dec. 12-19,

2016. The State of Illinois Local Election

Handbook must be followed precisely,

because candidates who do not

complete their paperwork exactly as

mandated will be disqualified from the

ballot.

It is worth emphasizing that last part,

because the last time that OPPL Board

seats were up for election, three good

people who wanted to run for seats in

the 2015 election were unable to do so

because they did not read the rules carefully

enough, and they did not properly

follow the specific instructions for

completing their petitions and submitting

them to the Village Clerk’s Office.

One candidate last time turned in his

petition with missing pages and had

to withdraw when the Clerk’s Office

would not allow him to go home and

get the missing paperwork he forgot.

Two other candidates were disqualified

when Joanna Liotine Leafblad,

who was herself running for an OPPL

Board seat, challenged their petitions

for not precisely following the stated

rules, [one of them regarding] how the

petitions were to be bound (and not

stapled).

The end result was that two seats

were up for election but only two candidates

ultimately were allowed to be

on the ballot (instead of the five candidates

who would have been in the race

if none of them were forced to withdraw

or were disqualified on technicalities).

Voters then had no choice or say

in the matter, since the two candidates

left standing were automatically awarded

the two OPPL Board seats in what

became an uncontested “election.”

To me, this is not how democracy is

supposed to work, and it all felt more

like how sham “elections” were held in

the Soviet Union. It was a disgrace.

In my opinion, anyone who wants

to run for a seat on the OPPL Board

should approach the process assuming

that technicalities will be used to disqualify

anyone that the Powers That Be

do not want to run.

The OPPL’s monthly receipts often

show questionable spending, and the

Library Board recently voted again to

give staff yet another round of generous

raises. The OPPL is a public body

in desperate need of strong public oversight,

starting with board members who

are committed to fiscal responsibility

and ending bad management practices.

Kevin DuJan

OPPL Patron

Hopefully Cook County passed its sick

leave ordinance

One of the joys of being pastor of St.

Elizabeth Seton Parish is greeting parishioners

after the weekend Masses.

Little ones run at me with hugs and

high-fives, adults come over to me

smiling and with out-stretched hands

for handshakes. We have a friendly

congregation.

As cold and flu season hits, at times

I have to turn down the handshakes

and high-fives, telling my parishioners

that I have a bad cold and “that they

do not want what I am selling.” They

are grateful for this precaution, as they

are grateful that we use hand sanitizer

before transferring consecrated hosts

to communion distribution plates, and

before ministers distribute communion.

All this is common sense, and good

sanitary sense.

I have come to believe that employers

similarly have good sense in their work

places, as I do in my parish church.

That is why I am strongly advocating

the Cook County [Board of] Commissioners

to pass the Cook County sick

time ordinance that is coming before

them for a vote.

Worldwide, 146 nations provide paid

sick leave for all workers. The proposed

Cook County ordinance has the

same provisions as the one passed by

the City of Chicago. It allows workers

one hour of paid sick time for every 40

hours worked, accumulating as many

as five paid sick days per year for a

full-time worker. The ordinance would

also allow 20 unused sick time hours

to carry over into the following year.

It also allows taking paid time off for

care of one‘s family members illness or

preventive care, or if a child’s school

were closed. This is a wise and familyfriendly

ordinance.

This whole issue was recently

brought home to me by a close friend of

mine who was part of the working poor.

He worked a 50-hour week at two parttime

jobs, which offered no benefits.

For the past two years, he was dying of

a number of lung diseases. He worked

on one recent Monday, entered the hospital

on Tuesday and was dead within a

week. He died as he wanted, “with his

boots on,” working hard to the end.

But he had to do this. If he did not

work, he was not paid. He lived out,

like so many others, a fierce work ethic.

If this ordinance was in effect, perhaps

his last days might have been a slight

bit easier.

If you must know, yes,

I enjoyed my break

immensely. I did a lot

of things locally (restaurants,

concerts, etc.) but

purposefully took a week

away from The Orland Park

Prairie without a proper

“vacation” planned (please,

don’t call it a “staycation”).

I simply needed the break.

Just weeks before, I

pulled off the feat of putting

out two newspapers in one

week, while one of our editors

was away on a break of

his own (he, to my knowledge,

actually went somewhere

fun). For the next two

weeks, I have the pleasure

of doing that again, and then

again, as another one of our

editors takes an extended

vacation. (Heavy is the head

that wears too many hats, I

suppose.)

So it seemed like a good

idea to find some time of

my own, right there in the

middle, to recharge the batteries

just a bit. And it was

incredibly enjoyable just

dropping into a lower gear

for a week or so there.

Unfortunately, with the

nature of the business being

what it is, that meant the

week before I left I was

doubling up on things to try

to help the people to whom

I was leaving some of my

work. And the week after

I returned (just this past

week) turned into a game of

catchup, while also preparing

for the weeks ahead in

which I’m shorthanded and

helping out again.

Hence the lack of any real

topic with which to engage

you with this week’s editorial.

Everyone I know who

has been asking me what I

have been up to lately has

received the simple answer,

“working.” I honestly don’t

know what to tell them,

with how much of my time

during this stretch has been

occupied by that activity.

I don’t know what else to

tell you, either. (Trust me;

I tried to rack my brain for

a better topic than this, I

promise).

So, I figured we’d start

with a status update. Also

an open call to tell me

what you have been up to

by hitting me up at bill@

opprairie.com, as I have to

assume it’s more interesting.

Always interested in hearing

your stories or simply

chatting with readers of the

paper. (I’ll find the time; I

always do.)

And hopefully, when you

return to this lovely column

space next week, I’ll have

something a little more

interesting in store.

in the world than real flamingos.”

Fashion is a Lifestyle

Fall is a great T time

Jackie OBoyle

Orland Park Resident

T

time!

Well, not exactly.

Golf season is coming

to an end. So, for the

next six months, T stand for

turtleneck!

Nothing says fall like a

cozy turtleneck.

Now, I realize you all either

love them or hate them.

Sadly, turtlenecks are not

for everyone, but if they’re

for you, high-five!

As much as we all hate to

say goodbye to summer, fall

feels good in a turtleneck,

jeans and a sweet pair of

boots. There is something

to be said about being all

snuggled up in a turtleneck.

Warm and practical, yet

provocative in a conservative

kind of way, turtlenecks

have morphed from the traditional

tight fold-overs into

cowl necks, mock necks

and high necks messier than

messy. They can be worn

long as a tunic, tucked, or

sleeveless and slim (my

favorite), fitting right at the

hip. You might like a cold

shoulder version, or a fancy

T-neck with cut-outs or

sheer inlays — quite appropriate

for the holidays.

Any way you like it, the

T-neck is a fall favorite in

my closet and should be in

yours, too.

I like my guy in a turtleneck,

too — black or navy,

medium weight, rib-knit and

fitted. Worn with jeans and

loafers, no socks.

The turtleneck is so easy.

It’s simple and so very

fashionable.

Time to put your golf

clubs away and repeat after

me, “T is for turtleneck.”

Pastor Column

There is no place for domestic violence

Imam Kifah Mustapha

Prayer Center of Orland Park

On Sept. 30, 2015,

President Obama

declared October

National Domestic Violence

Awareness Month.

In that presidential proclamation

from the Office of

the Press Secretary, it stated

that, “Nearly 1 in 4 women

and 1 in 7 men in the United

States have suffered severe

physical violence by an intimate

partner.” The National

Coalition against Domestic

Violence reported that,

“In 2014 a total of 65,800

intimate violence incidents

were reported to Illinois law

enforcement, many others

were not reported.” The

Centers for Disease Control

and Prevention reported

that, “Every minute, about

20 people are physically

abused by an intimate partner

in the U.S.”

Such alarming rates

and numbers should be a

concern for everyone to

set prevention measures to

stop domestic violence and

provide treatment centers to

aid in the healing process

for victims of domestic

violence.

Next to law enforcement

and social services,

members of clergy have an

important role to play in this

issue, since we deal with a

large number of community

members in our congregations.

As imam of the Prayer

Center of Orland Park, I am

planning a series of educational

programs this month

to bring awareness and cure

to this social disease.

This series will focus on

three areas.

First, to clarify that Islam

does not permit abuse in any

form — be it verbal, mental

or physical. The life of

Prophet Mohammad, who is

the role model and example

for every Muslim, is totally

free from any abuse toward

a wife, child, servant or

worker. As a matter of fact,

he said, “The best among

you are those who treat their

spouses the best.”

Secondly, to launch a

series of sermons, written

articles and seminars

to address ways to prevent

domestic violence and help

bring healing to victims

of abuse. This series will

detail the legal liabilities,

social impact on the family,

especially children, and

produce emotional support

for victims in the healing

process from a community

perspective, such as creating

support groups.

Finally, to unite with

other faith-based groups

to learn and benefit from

their experiences in order

to provide a list of available

services to the public.

In this day and age,

people, especially children,

are routinely exposed to

violent images through

technology. Movies, games

and real scenes of atrocities

in the news are all just a

click away on their phones,

tablets and computers. This

constant bombardment

desensitizes one’s natural

abhorrence to violence,

making it seem less heinous

than reality, and even glamourous

in some cases.

I believe that dealing with

domestic violence within

our own communities must

come from a wholesome

approach. Teaching methods

of maintaining issues within

the family, from financial

wellness to raising kids,

is an important factor to

help reduce and eliminate

domestic violence in our

homes.

I hope and pray that each

one of us will take his role

in this fight against domestic

violence seriously, so

everyone can live in dignity

and honor.

Orland native finds her way back to area

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

Those visiting the New

Lenox Public Library may

have noticed a new face.

Michelle Krooswyk, who

grew up in nearby Orland

Park, took over as director

of the library on Sept. 12.

Krooswyk received her

master’s degree in library

science from Dominican

University, and has worked

at libraries in Florida and

Missouri, and at nearby

White Oak Library District.

Since starting her tenure

at the New Lenox library,

Krooswyk said she has received

a warm welcome.

“The staff is wonderful,

and they’ve been amazing,”

she said. “I’ve been trying to

make a point of getting out

onto the floor a few times

a week to really introduce

myself to the patrons of the

library. They’ve been great,

and it seems like they really

enjoy their library.”

In the early going, Krooswyk

has a goal of becoming

a “well-oiled machine” with

her team. But she admitted

there will be a lot to learn,

as well.

“Going into administration,

you’ve got another

layer of things to deal with,

such as making sure the

board gets the information

they need to make the decisions

for the community

and the library,” she said.

“But my big thing is to ensure

that we are working as a

well-oiled machine and a cohesive

team. Teamwork and

trust is very important, along

with communication.”

Once that is established,

she wants to get out into the

community to tell the residents

of New Lenox about all

the library has to offer.

“I was lucky enough to

go to the American Library

Association’s annual conference

this past year,” she

said. “A little quote that really

hit home to me was that

you always hear that the library

wants to be the heart

of the community. Someone

reversed it and said, no, they

want the community to be

the heart of the library. That

really spoke to me.

“It’s just a really simple

mixing of words, but that

is going to be my real end

goal — getting out there and

letting people know what

we can do for them and the

community.”

Krooswyk comes to New

Lenox with a wealth of experience.

After attending

Moraine Valley Community

College and Governors State

University, she started working

as a page in a library. Her

first professional librarian

job was in Central Florida,

and it lasted for three years.

Then, she worked at the

White Oak Library District.

When her husband’s work

moved them to Kansas City,

she worked at the Johnson

County Library. Along the

way, she worked in the children’s

department, circulation

and most recently as an

assistant branch manager.

“That was my first fullfledged

management position,”

she said. “I really enjoyed

the ability to mentor

people, to orchestrate things,

and I knew that I wanted to

move in more of an upward

direction while also retaining

some of those responsibilities.

“We found out at the beginning

of this year that [my

husband was again] relocating,

so we started looking

for jobs, and I was lucky

enough to find this position.

I’m very excited about what

is coming up in the future.”

Finding her way back to

the area was important.

“We knew we wanted to

be in the southwest suburbs,

closer to family and friends,”

Krooswyk said. “And to set

down roots somewhere and

see the impact of the changes

that me and my team [at

the library] can make.”

The Dish

MOD Pizza finds way to make chain feel local in Orland Park

Bill Jones, Editor

The Wall of Fame inside MOD Pizza in Orland Park features

images of everything from school logos to area customers

to the company’s staff.

When MOD Pizza first

opened its doors in 2008

in downtown Seattle, its

fresh concept was then a

novel idea: Take the already

infinitely modifiable

delicacy that is pizza, apply

Chipotle-esque fast casual

counter service and toss in

an 800-degree oven for rapidly-served,

ever-creative

tastes in a family-friendly

environment.

And it worked. The chain

has continued to grow — it

is on track to hit 200 stores

by the end of the year —

since first permeating the

Chicago market with North

Shore and Western suburban

locations.

But by the time MOD

Pizza arrived in Orland

Park with No. 156 this past

month, it found a market already

introduced to similar

— if not quite exact — concepts

in the likes of Wooden

Paddle Pizza and Pronto

Pizza Kitchen, one of which

literally resides just across

the street. And both boast

the hometown advantage of

being Orland Park-first restaurants.

So how does a chain like

MOD Pizza compete?

To start, it makes sure it

looks a lot more local than

the usual franchise.

“It’s very localized,” said

Peter Nielsen, MOD’s Chicago

district manager. “The

community knows we’re

here, and we know they’re

here.”

That recognition hits

customers the second they

walk through MOD’s doors,

where they are greeted by

large, three-dimensional

block letters spelling “Orland

Park” across the wall,

leading up to the counter.

Across the way is an entire

wall featuring images of

area school logos and local

sites, as well as Illinois

customers and MOD Squad

(staff) members.

“It’s near and dear to my

heart,” Nielsen said of what

is dubbed the Wall of Fame.

“We don’t have any pictures

of food up on the walls. We

celebrate our people.”

That is the other key ingredient

to MOD’s success.

It touts itself as a people-first

company. It sells some beer

and wine (two drafts, four

bottles, two wines in Orland

Park) along with its pizzas,

but it is first and foremost a

family spot. It plays trendy

music, but keeps it low to

remain “inviting.”

“We want people to have

conversations,” Nielsen explained.

“We want people to

talk. We want to be a family

atmosphere.”

But rather than seeking

conformity from its staff to

achieve that goal — Nielsen

said he asks that employees

try to treat every customer

as they would their grandparents

— it welcomes individuality.

“They’re all MOD in the

sense that they have personalities,”

Nielsen said. “And

they’re not afraid to show

them.”

The restaurant took another

step toward endearing

itself to the community

upon its opening Sept. 23.

The chain partners with

local causes for its grand

openings, and in Orland

Park The Bridge Teen Center

was the beneficiary of

nearly $1,600 in pizza sales

during MOD’s grand opening

event.

At its core, however,

MOD is a pizza place, and

to succeed it must deliver on

that front. MOD’s proven

approach is that of a menu

that is deceptively simple

The Dillon James — also known as the No. 7 — features red sauce, garlic, fresh chopped

basil, mozzarella, tomatoes and Asiago. It is one of the classic pies at the MOD Pizza chain,

which recently opened its first southwest suburban Chicago location in Orland Park.

Photos by Bill Jones/22nd Century Media

while offering a wealth of

options.

At the core of that menu

are pizzas and salads, both

of which pull from the same

collection of roughly 50

ingredients, from typical

items like red sauce, pepperoni

and green peppers

to more diverse options that

include a garlic rub, dairyfree

cheese, garbanzo beans

and a balsamic fig glaze,

with plenty in between.

Diners can choose from the

nine classic pizzas — most

with names somehow tied

to members of the company

— and three salads, or start

completely from scratch.

Beyond that, customers

are simply tasked with

picking a size for the pizza.

Minis run $4.87, MODs

$7.87 and megas $10.87.

Salads cost $9.87. Beyond

that, the toppings are “unlimited.”

So while a classic

like the Dillon James —

featuring red sauce, garlic,

fresh chopped basil, mozzarella,

tomatoes and Asiago

— might hit the spot on its

own for some, customers

with diverging tastes are

welcome to tweak the formula

at no extra charge.

The restaurant says it

is nut free. It also offers

a gluten-free crust. And

for vegan guests, both the

dough and red sauce already

are vegan, and MOD offers

vegan mozzarella to boot.

Its open view of the ingredients

and oven also make it

easy to see how everything

is put together.

“No secrets here,”

Nielsen said. “We’re just

trying to make good food.”

Beyond those core offerings,

the menu features

garlic and cinnamon strips

(with dip options) for $2.97

apiece, MODshakes, fountain

drinks and floats. But

the menu essentially stops

there, and that is by design.

“We just want to keep it

simple,” Nielsen said. “We

like the idea that people can

just come in and make a

pizza.”

As simple and yet openended

as that concept is the

restaurant’s name. Does

it stand for “Made on Demand”?

Modifications? A

nod to the 1960s British

subculture fashion? All of

the above?

When asked, Nielsen

plays coy regarding the answer.

“People can make MOD

whatever they want,” he

said. “That’s really what it’s

about ... allow [customers]

to be themselves, show their

personalities. That’s what

we’re about.

“It’s just pizza. It’s fun.

It’s fast. It’s a good time.”

ANNOUNCING 2 NEW FLOOR PLANS IN OUR LEIGHLINBRIDGE

TOWNHOME COMMUNITY, THE CORK AND THE DUBLIN.

The community will

accommodate 60 maintenance-free

ranch and

two-story duplex-type townhomes.

The base price of

these 1,692 to 2,095 squarefoot,

stair-free ranch or twostory

homes starts in the

low 200’s.

The Cork is a 2 bedroom,

2.5 bath two-story with a

loft. The main floor features

a two story great room,

kitchen and dinette with

first floor laundry, garage

access and a powder room.

The second floor features

2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms,

the Master Suite has

a large walk-in closet and

large bathroom.

The Dublin is a 2 or 3

bedroom split level home,

1.5 or 2.5 bath. You choose

from a loft or 3rd full bathroom

depending on your

needs. The lower level offers

separate living and bedroom

space or a large family

room and laundry. The main

level has an open concept

living; living room, kitchen

and dinette with optional

fireplace. The upper level

features 2 ample bedrooms

and 2 bathrooms, the Master

Suite has a large walk-in

closet and master bathroom.

“We have a lot of flexibility

in both floor plans,” said

Tom Cachey of TJ Cachey

in Manhattan offers a maintenance-free

environment

to homeowners. The association

is responsible for

common-area landscaping,

snow removal from driveways/sidewalks,

grass cutting

of yards and all exterior

maintenance or repairs to

the homes.

These brick homes have

color coordinated lap siding

and a steeply pitched roof

covered with architecturalgrade

shingles. Combined

with attached two-car garages

and private entrances

these duplex homes feature

the curb appeal that

homebuyers cannot find

anywhere else.

For the customers who

want the same type of upgrades

they would expect

in a single family home,

Cachey Builders will customize

these homes with full

basements, hardwood flooring,

granite or solid surface

countertops, architecturally

attractive volume ceilings,

skylights, fireplaces,

upgraded appliances and

much more.

Families who purchase

Athlete of the Week

10 Question

with Danny Rohder

Danny Rohder is in his senior

year at Sandburg, and

co-captains the soccer team

with Derek McCurdy and

Marty Manzke.

When did you start

playing soccer?

I started when I was 4. My

brothers played. As soon as

I was old enough to play, I

started, and I would stay at

practices with them and play

with the older kids.

What’s your biggest

challenge this season?

I would say trying to get

the team to work together,

and work hard for each

other. Sometimes when we

get scored on, we hang our

heads, and we have to work

through the hard times.

Who is your favorite

soccer star?

Lionel Messi.

You just won $1 million

dollars, what are you

going to buy first?

Weekly Deal

$2George’s Chili

22nd Century Media File

Photo

I would buy an Audi R8

sports car.

What’s one food you

cannot live without?

from the

$180’s

Ice cream. I could eat any

flavor, but if I had to choose

my favorite it would be

cookies ’n cream.

What is the best advice

you’ve ever gotten?

My dad would always tell

me that even if you work

hard and things don’t work

out, you just have to keep

working. You can’t guarantee

that you’ll get results,

but not working isn’t going

to solve anything.

What is the most played

song on your phone

right now?

“Mama Said,” Lukas Graham.

If you could be any

superhero, who would

you choose?

Superman. He’s probably

the most well know. He has

everything going on for him.

What is your signature

dance move?

It would probably have to

be the dab.

You have to live without

either the Internet

or your phone for a

week. Which would you

choose?

Probably the Internet, because

I don’t use the Internet

too much and just text my

friends.

Boys Golf

Eagles take conference title by three strokes

Sandburg’s Max

Farley earns

medalist honors

Randy Whalen

Freelance Reporter

When Max Farley began

golfing, he was 5 years old.

That was in 2007. And

that is the last time the Sandburg

boys golf team won a

conference championship.

Until this past week.

Farley was the medalist

with a 6-over-par 78,

as the Sandburg boys golf

team overcame some windy

conditions to win the Blue

Division title of the South-

West Suburban Conference

Sept. 27 at Coyote Run Golf

Course in Flossmoor.

The Eagles, who had a trio

of golfers in the Top 5 and

finished with a score of 322,

were three strokes ahead of

host Homewood-Flossmoor

(325). Lockport (335), Stagg

(353) and Bolingbrook (395)

rounded out the teams.

“In my seven seasons as a

head coach, I’ve had teams

win regionals, but never a

conference title,” Sandburg

coach Jeff Kwilose said.

“That’s how hard it is in this

conference.

“The boys battled through

tough conditions. The winds

were blowing at about 25

mph, and gusting at times.

But our guys did great, and

our freshman was the medalist.”

That was Farley, who hung

“Going into the last three holes, I knew I was at the

top or near the top of the leaderboard. But coach

didn’t tell me. He said to just go play my game.”

Max Farley — Sandburg golfer, on taking medalist honors at the conference

meet

on to that top spot down the

stretch. He actually held off

a couple of teammates, as senior

Will Schieber took third

with 79, and senior Brad

Vetter was fifth with 80. Two

more seniors, David Drabeck

and John Karuntzos,

each shot an 85 to round out

the top scores for the Eagles.

Farley — whose older

brother and senior Aidan

Farley is a top swimmer for

the Eagles — never expected

to be in position to be the

medalist.

“I would not have believed

that,” Farley said,

when asked if he thought a

year ago that he would be in

this spot. “There’s a lot of

good golfers in high school

with more experience than

me.”

But the strategy of Kwilose

not letting his young

golfer know where he stood

paid off.

“Going into the last three

holes, I knew I was at the top

or near the top of the leaderboard,”

Farley said. “But

coach didn’t tell me. He said

to just go play my game.

“I just played really conservative

on the last thee

holes. I actually bogeyed all

of them but still had a goodenough

score. I had only

played the course once, and

that was the Sunday before.

The fairways on the course

are really narrow, so with

the wind, I had to golf really

well to get there.”

Farley and the rest of the

Eagles are looking forward

to the postseason, which

opened this week. Sandburg

was slated to host its own

Class 3A regional Tuesday,

Oct. 4, at Silver Lake Golf

Course in Orland Park. The

winners advance to the Pekin

Sectional slated for Monday,

Oct. 10 at Lick Creek Golf

Course.

The Class 3A state finals

are to be held Oct. 14-15 at

The Den at Fox Creek Golf

Course in Bloomington.

Sandburg girls golfers lead the pack in SWSC Blue

Postseason

Progress: Sandburg

golf programs

1. Boys win regionals

In the time in which

Jeff Kwilose has

served as coach of the

Sandburg boys golf

team, the Eagles have

won regional titles in

2011, 2012, 2014 and

2015.

2. Girls start a streak

On the girls side of the

golf ball, the Eagles

have won the South-

West Suburban Conference

Blue Division for

four straight years, as

of Sept. 28.

3. Close competition

The Sandburg girls’

closest competition in

terms of score also is

close, geographically

speaking. Lockport

Township took a close

second in the conference,

while the next

closest was nearly 100

strokes away from the

Eagles Sept. 28 at Broken

Arrow Golf Club.

Eagles take first,

Lockport second at

Broken Arrow

Randy Whalen

Freelance Reporter

New faces, same good result

for the Sandburg girls

golf team.

Three of the Eagles’ Top 6

players on last season’s team

graduated. But that did not

stop them from capturing a

fourth straight Blue Division

title in the SouthWest Suburban

Conference Sept. 28 at

Broken Arrow Golf Club in

Lockport.

Hannah Kilbane led the

way for Sandburg. The sophomore

easily won top medalist

honors with a 2-over-par 74.

Veteran Emilyee McGiles

(82) finished second, as

Sandburg had five players

receive medals in shooting

a 346.

Lockport Township (362)

was second. The balanced

Porters had the other seven

medalists and had all eight of

their girls finish in the Top 13.

Homewood-Flossmoor

(445), Stagg (456) and

Bolingbrook (499) rounded

out the rest of the team

scores.

“To shoot a 346 in tough

conditions, with a lot of

wind, on what was really the

first cool day of the fall, is really

good,” Sandburg coach

Todd Allen said. “Hannah

shot a 74 and looked really

solid. We’re glad to win the

conference again. It’s one of

our goals at the start of the

season.”

Kilbane, who tied Emily

Cosler for the best score

at the state tournament in

helping the Eagles to a sixthplace

finish in Class 2A this

past year, was happy to be

the conference medalist, but

not satisfied.

“Last year, I shot a 79 at

Silver Lake South Course,

and this year I did a lot better,”

she said. “But it could

have been an even better

score. I missed a few short

putts for par, and that bothered

me. So, it was kind of

disappointing, because I

know I can do better.”

She had two birdies in the

18-hole round.

“I’m still happy with how

I played, because it was

windy out,” Kilbane said.

“We definitely want to make

it back to state.”

Senior Morgan Howard

(94), junior Dayna Waner

(96) and senior Jenna Perdue

(99) rounded out the Sandburg

medalists. Senior Sarah

Gleason (109), junior Hannah

Carrie (116) and junior

Maddie Cosler (121) had the

rest of the Eagles scores.

McGiles, now a senior,

has been a mainstay for the

Eagles since she helped

them to an 11th-place state

finish in 2013. They tied for

fifth two years ago and finished

sixth this past season,

and she said she hopes for

one more state run this fall.

“We lost a few scorers

from last year,” said McGiles,

who has verbally committed

to Southern Illinois

University in Carbondale.

“But we’ve had girls that

have put in the effort and

seen that hard work pay off.

“I would love to take the

team downstate again. We’re

working real hard to get

there.”

While Lockport did not

have the top scores to realistically

compete with Sandburg

for the league title, the

Porters have an amazingly

balanced team. That showed

in their Top 4 scores. Those

were by freshman Rachel

Kuzel (88), followed by seniors

Sydney Loeffler (89),

Erica Long (92) and McKenzie

Ebel (93).

The remaining Lockport

scores were seniors Hannah

Frank (102), Katelyn Kendziora

(102), Beth Kuhn (105)

and Paige Christian (106).

The Porters won the JV

Tournament with a score of

470 and were led by overall

runner-up sophomore Sarah

Pritchard (114).

“We have seven seniors,

so we lose a lot after this

year,” said Lockport coach

Matt Major, whose squad

lost to Sandburg 173-180 in

the team’s dual meet matchup

Sept. 22 at Silver Lake

Country Club. “But our JV

won, and we’re happy with

the way things went. It was

a lot of fun and a good day.”

Sandburg and Lockport

could meet one more time

next week. The Eagles were
