Local kids compose new

song for LF Symphony

Erin Yarnall, Freelance Reporter

Most petting zoos feature a variety of

farm animals, but when they’re hosted

by the Lake Forest Symphony, they’re

home to an array of musical instruments


On Oct. 8, the symphony appealed to

kids with their own take on a petting zoo,

featuring instruments that the kids could

touch and play with to help them gain an

understanding of what goes into playing

an instrument.

The petting zoo followed a presentation

of Compose Yourself!, a nearly hourlong

concert performed by members of

the Lake Forest Symphony in the John

& Nancy Hughes Theater inside Gorton

Community Center, the administrative

home of the Lake Forest Symphony.

Compose Yourself! — which was conducted

and composed by Jim Stephenson,

the composer-in-residence of the Lake

Forest Symphony — helped introduce

children to different instruments by explaining

the families of instruments and

the abilities of the individual instruments.

“It’s very important to me to have our

grandkids involved in music,” said Libertyville

resident Marge Stueckemann,

who attended the concert with her grandson

Pierce Adams.

Individual instruments were highlighted

during the concert, including the

flute as a narrator compared it to blowing

on a bottle before leading the rest of the

orchestra as they blew on bottles along

with the flutist.

“What we hope is the message that follows

through from that is that this is the

moment to get your kids exposed and get

them excited about not only orchestral

music as a thing, but individual instruments,”

Alex Monroe, the general manager

of the Lake Forest Symphony, said.

Monroe’s hopes resonated with Lake

Forest resident Thomas Strong, who was

most excited to see the cello. Strong ran

into the theater, excitedly pointing out

the cellist to the rest of his family.

“I go to Sheridan [Elementary School]

and there’s orchestra class,” Strong said. “I

picked the cello because you get to sit down.

Lake Forest City Council

Council fuels flames on joint firefighting effort

Derek Wolff, Sports Editor

Concerns over the increasingly

difficult role of funding

pension liabilities for police officers

and firefighters may lead

to higher taxes in Lake Forest

or the creation of joint fire and

emergency medical services

with neighboring municipalities.

The Lake Forest City Council

discussed short-term, intermediate

and long-term solutions to

the challenges of continuing to

provide a high level of fire and

emergency medical services

in the wake of operational and

financial pressures during its

regularly scheduled meeting on

Monday, Oct. 3, from City Hall.

City Manager Bob Kiely

urged the Council to take up the

unsavory task of finding solutions

before the city’s Nov. 14

budget meeting regarding the

funding of public safety pensions.

Kiely stressed that Lake

Forest would be among the first

in the area to meet the issue —

shared by many local municipalities

— head on.

“Everybody is fighting with

the same issues that we are

fighting with but it’s one of

those issues where nobody

wants to be out in front,” Kiely

said. “This isn’t going to be

a very comfortable conversation

and it’s certainly not going

to be an easy conversation to


The assembled aldermen on

the Council mulled over the

pros and cons of the short-term,

intermediate and long-term solutions.

Short-term solutions

included a proposed increase in

water bills, set at $10 per quarter,

or an increase to the real estate

tax levy.

The short-term solutions

would only be viable on a yearly

basis, Kiely said. Of the three

types of solutions, they generated

the most contention among

the aldermen.

“It’s gotta stop, this whole

thing has to stop,” said Alderman

Jack Reisenberg, venting

his frustration at what he called

a “rigged system in Springfield”

that has helped accelerate the

revenue shortfall Lake Forest

faces. “We’ve got to find a solution

around this problem and

it’s not by asking the people to

fork up more money. We have

an inappropriate benefit design


Reisenberg argued that it

was the Council’s responsibility

— or that of its alderman’s

successors — to try and solve

the problem through alternative

measures without fee increases

or tax increases on residents.

Alderman George Pandaleon

offered a contrarian point of

view, arguing that the residents

would understand the City’s

predicament and understand

that some services need to be

paid for.

“I’m not advocating that we

just pay for this and don’t do

anything else but in the short

run it’s transparent, it’s clear,”

Pandaleon said. “People understand

what it’s for and

maybe that motivates them to

take some action as citizens

to do something about what’s

going on at the state level or

invite some sort federal intervention.

It’s an unsustainable


A report done by the Fire

Service Vision 2020 Committee

over the past two years has

uncovered that personnel costs

— which account for 98 percent

of the fire department’s operating

budget — are increasing at

twice the rate of general fund

revenues, which is increasing

the revenue shortfall.

Alderman Michelle Moreno

said that the rising pension rates

would eventually cause her to

leave Lake Forest and advocated

the long-term strategy of

merging fire and rescue services

with other neighboring municipalities,

despite being fond

of the existing services and its


“If it were up to me, I would

increase the staff; they’re fantastic

guys and gals,” Moreno

said. “But we can’t afford them

under this structure. The structure

fails. I’m happy to go with

the short-term solutions but in

the long-term I will leave the

city. I cannot afford a 10-times

increase in fees to cover somebody

else’s pension when mine

is going the other direction.

“And I don’t want to leave. I

grew up here and want to stay.”

In the interim, Lake Forest

will look at steps to continue

doing more with less in its intermediate

solutions by looking

into opportunities for additional

operational efficiencies, safety

and building code modifications,

extending the useful life

of essential equipment, examining

existing response protocols

and reevaluating current mutual

aid agreements with other considerations.

Alderman Prue Beidler called

on feedback from residents to

help tackle the issue.

“Beating up on Springfield,

while it’s tempting and it’s necessary,

is not going to solve the

problems,” Beidler said. “We

have to keep doing the things

we have been doing, both shortterm

and long-term, but be

mindful of the things we can

be doing and using our elected

officials and being totally clear

with our constituents that this

is beyond us and we’re going to

do everything we can and want

you to know what that is. We

want you to look at it and give

us ideas but it is beyond us and

we’re going to need your help.”

Ultimately, the Council directed

Kiely, as well as Director

of Finance Elizabeth Holleb, to

continue looking into solutions

to deal with the shortfall.

Mayor Donald Schoenheider

echoed Kiely’s earlier sentiments

that while it isn’t an enviable

task, Lake Forest has been

at the forefront of making the

tough decisions in the past and

needs to do that once more.

“We need to lead in this issue,”

Schoenheider said. “I

don’t think there are many communities

that are discussing

this. This committee has lead

on major issues in the past and

it’s appropriate for us to lead on

this issue now. It’s time for us

to really take the lead and try to

find solutions but in the interim

we have to do what’s financially

prudent, both for our forces and

our residents.”

It’s big but not too big.”

Strong was interested

in attending the event to

see the cellist perform and

to see what it will be like

when he can “really play.”

The symphony was also

broken down into families

of instruments, as each

musician sat behind a

stand with a colored banner

showing the name

of their instrument on it.

Each banner was colorcoded

for the four families

of instruments — blue for

woodwind, red for strings,

green for brass and purple

for percussion.

The finale of the concert

saw six volunteers go on

stage, including Adams

and Strong, and choose

between different options

for melodies, harmonies

and rhythm. At the end,

the volunteers had helped

to create a new song for

the orchestra to play.

Monroe hopes that the

experience helps to “demystify”

the orchestra,

and show kids that they

can be a part of it one day.

“When you come and

see the orchestra for the

first time, it’s just this big

thing in front of you,”

Monroe said. “It’s hard

to parse all the different

parts. [Compose Yourself!]

shows you each one,

and I think that’s what

people really understand.

It doesn’t seem like such a

big thing where you wonder

‘where would I fit into

that?’ You can see where

your place would be.”

You Know Neen

Do you share everything with your spouse?

Nina Vallone

Guest Columnist

While marriage is

a union between

two people

agreeing to share their

lives with one another,

does that mean they need

to share everything?

And what is everything,


Emotional intimacy, the

kind we all crave in our

marriages, involves being

vulnerable and open with

one another. When we

agree to share a life, we

share our hopes, dreams

and fears. We share our

bodies, we share our families

of origin, we create

a new family sometimes

and share our children.

We share responsibilities

and mortgages. Isn’t that


When does intimacy interrupt

privacy and does it

matter to you? I’m a super

private person, and yet,

if my husband wants to

know something, I answer

him honestly. That said,

there are things I keep to


For example, I don’t

tell him that I prefer $22

mascara to the $8 drugstore

variety. I may or

may not tell him I took a

nap instead of going to the

grocery store. My husband

may not tell me about a

deal gone wrong at work.

He may decide not to tell

me about a conversation

he had with his mom that

he knows will upset me.

Quite frankly, I need

some things that I keep

to myself and for myself.

And Hubs needs the same.

One thing I never tell

Hubs? What my friends

tell me in confidence. Or

what we chat about that

perhaps he just doesn’t

need to know. I think that

is an ultimate betrayal

in trust. I know women

who tell their husbands

everything their friends

say. Something about that

just feels wrong to me.

I get that at the end of a

fun night, there’s nothing

like snuggling up with

your husband or wife

and chatting about who

said what and how funny

this person was and can

you believe the joke Jake

told blahblahblah. But.

But. If I’m out with my

gal pals and one of them

starts talking about how

aggravated they are with

their job, their own Hubs

or how she’s thinking of

going on vacation alone,

what kind of friend am I

to share that with Hubs?

She’s telling me, not him.

I stopped sharing information

with a friend of mine

that does share everything

with her husband.

I stopped trusting her to

keep my confidences, big

or small.

Do our partners need

to know all these little

things? I don’t think so. I

talked with Hubs before

writing this column

(something I rarely do!)

and he and I both agreed

on this. Neither of us,

in these situations, are

telling lies to disguise our

true identities from one


Sharing becomes tricky

though, when it involves

bigger issues. What if my

son goes to my husband

about something and asks

him not to tell me? Yikes.

While I know I don’t need

to know everything about

my kids, I admit, I kind of

want to. That said, I trust

Hubs enough to tell me

what I need to know. That

was tough to type, simply

because - my kiddos!

Thankfully, we communicate

pretty well (Bcommunicators?


see last week’s column for

clarity.) Because of the

good and open communication,

we both know

what needs to be shared

and what doesn’t.

Sharing can also become

tricky if we tell little

lies consistently, when we

do begin to hide part of

our life from our spouse.

The more we hide our true

selves the more we step

away from others. Over

time, we create emotional

distance. The small, consistent

lies add up to a big

old life of lies.

So what do we share

and what do we keep

private? It’s different for

every relationship, I think.

If we truly know our partners

and know ourselves,

a few secrets here and

there are healthy. Hubs

doesn’t need to know just

how much green juice I

buy every week, right?

What do you think?

How much do you share

with your spouse? Let us

The retreats give veterans

the opportunity to reveal

experiences they have

held secret to civilians and

fellow warriors.

Sternberg said treatment

with drugs and traditional

psychotherapy have shown

only limited success “because

it doesn’t get at this

basic moral breakdown. It

doesn’t heal the split.”

That is where the retreats

come in. There have

been two four-day retreats

to date, with another

scheduled for Nov. 13-17.

They are composed of 20-

27 people, 60 percent of

whom are veterans and the

remainder are civilians.

The veterans range in age

from the 70s to 20s.

Winnetka presents

preservation awards,

business construction


At Winnetka’s Oct. 4

Village Council meeting,

the Village had the

chance to salute historic

preservation efforts going

on in town. According to

the Winnetka Landmark

Preservation Commission,

seven Winnetka property

owners and corresponding

architects were recently

able to restore properties

that contained historic

character. In a memo to

the Council, village planning

assistant Ann Klaassen

said Village Preservation

Awards are given to

people who help retain the

uniqueness of Winnetka.

“The Preservation

Awards program seeks to

honor those construction

projects in the village that

have helped preserve the

history and character of

the village,” Klaassen said.

Six of the awarded properties

were rehabilitation

projects in different parts

of the Village and the seventh

honor went to the

owners and architect of a

home that was designed by

noted 20th century architect

David Adler.

According to Winnetka

Landmark Preservation

Commission chairwoman

Louise Holland, after becoming

dilapidated, the

Adler house was moved

and restored from its original

location on Laurel

Avenue to its current spot

on Burr Avenue. According

to the commission,

the restored home features

a new garage and better

Residens call BDR3 ‘a

punishment’ for failed


The Highland Park District

112 School Board

met for the committee of

the whole meeting Oct. 4

to discuss new and previously

drafted options for

school boundaries with

BDR3 — a school closing

plan that would eliminate

four elementary schools

and one middle school in

the district.

Chief Technology Officer

John Petzke went

over the original drafts for

BDR3, which were presented

to the board at its

Sept. 20 meeting, and then

presented four revisions to

the original drafts.

Members of the community

were made aware

of the drafts and their revisions,

and 32 residents,

parents and community

members expressed their

disapproval of them during

the public comment

portion of the meeting.

Some accused the board

members of implementing

BDR3 as a way to “punish

the community” for not

passing the March referendum.

“BDR3 seems very retaliatory,“

Highland Park

resident Meghan Poulsom

said. “It seems like we’re

being punished for not

passing the plan. I think

it’s ridiculous.”

Much of the concern

dealt with parents worrying

about their children

being taken out of their

neighborhood schools.

Another large concern

expressed during public

comment was that residents

will have a difficult

time selling their homes

because of BDR3.

the change from

summer to fall much

more eloquently than I

can. Without fault—no

matter the political scene

or who is in the Major

League Baseball playoffs

or which National Football

League team is under

performing, or who will

make the final roster on

the Chicago Blackhawks

this season—the one

constant about the month

of October is that summer

is certainly over and the

days grow ever shorter

and colder.

Yet there is still

splendor to be found in

this wonderful time of

year before the snows

come and the temperatures

dip below freezing.

Last week I spent a good

amount of my Wednesday,

Oct. 5, hanging out

under a tree at the clubhouse

at Deerpath Golf

Course in Lake Forest,

waiting for the Highland

Park and Lake Forest

High School girls golf

teams to come in from

their rounds during an

IHSA Regional.

As fate would have it,

the teams tied for third

place in the contest,

meaning that a tiebreaker

would determine which

team advanced to the sectional,

played earlier this

week. In the end, Lake

Forest advanced due to a

better fifth-score finish,

bringing at once anguish

and elation to the two

sides I’ve gotten accustomed

to throughout my

coverage of the teams this

season. There was some

solace to be taken in the

fact that Highland Park

did qualify three individuals

on to the sectional,

though it would have

been nice for the entire

team to have made it.

As the fall sports

seasons wind down and

we make our transition

to winter, the sonnets of

various athletes at both

high schools will be written,

Fall always brings out

some of the best days of

the year, particulalry in

a place as creative as the

North Shore. Later on this

month The Leader will be

scouting out Halloween

decorations, looking for

the most festive houses

and the best spots for

trick-or-treaters in Lake

Forest and Lake Bluff.

Finding those houses was

one of my first assignments

when I began writing

for the Leader a little

over a year ago.

As the leaves fell down

from the tree I was sitting

under at Deerpath—the

gorgeous golden brown

color of the season—the

changing landscape before

me was completely

abundant, but that’s a

good thing. There was

plenty to look back upon

over this past year, and

still plenty more to look

forward to.

So I issue this following

challenge to our readers;

what do you fall for

this time of year? Let me

know by emailing me at


media.com. Have a fall

project you’re passionate

about? Send a letter to

the editor and we’ll get

the word out. If there’s

one constant about the

Leader, it’s that we fall

for the stories that you

provide us and are always

looking for more.

“Heart and Soul” exhibit combines love, loss, hope

Danielle Gensburg

Freelance Reporter

“Heart and Soul”, the

newest artist exhibit at

Re-Invent Gallery in Lake

Forest, features the collective

works of two artists,

one a painter, the other a

multi-dimensional artist,

who met serendipitously

and realized their art shared

common themes of love,

life, loss and the power of

art to heal.

The exhibit opened on

Friday, Oct. 7 from 6-9

p.m. and will run through

Nov. 12.

“Both artists are expressing

a shared concept in

different media, and both

of them really focus on

this idea of healing and

celebrating,” said Cecilia

Lanyon, co-owner of Re-

Invent. “They’re embracing

the same concept of using

the beauty of their art to

heal and celebrate life,”

Artists Maureen Claffey

and Diane Feldpausch Tang

first met this past summer

while exhibiting their work

in a small group show at

Urban Edge Gallery in

Waukegan. The curator of

the gallery and organizer of

the show was Lake Forest

resident Vickie Marasco,

who immediately noticed

the connection between

both artists’ work and later

approached co-owners of

Re-Invent, Lanyon and

Kristin Mikrut, about planning

a future show with

both of the artists at their

gallery in Lake Forest.

“I think viewers are going

to sense the passion and the

power that both of these female

artists possess,” Marasco

said. “They clicked

together as two people and

really appreciate one another’s

work. They both have

a story to tell, and I think

it comes across very nicely


The new exhibit will

feature 15 colorful and vibrant

paintings by Claffey,

some done on watercolor

paper and others on canvas

or custom birch wood

board, made mainly in

fluid acrylic paint and watercolor

with some metallic,

iridescent, binding and

grinding mediums added in

and 10 sculptures by Tang

made from high fire glazes,

stoneware clay and finials

(which are made from

found objects in neglected

places like scrap yards).

Both artists draw heavily

from nature and their own

personal experiences in their

work. Claffey’s paintings are

inspired by her four children,

two rescue dogs, and a recent

divorce that, she described,

allowed her to reclaim her

voice and her ability to make

her way in the world, while

Tang’s hand-crafted, sculptural

“Healing Vessels” are

modeled after the bleeding

heart flower and memories

of her grandmother.

Tang’s vessels also act

as a way to store memories

and feelings while embracing


“I wanted to make a vessel

to store feelings, and I

thought about what kinds

of things I could use. I love

nature and recalled my

childhood with my grandmother,

who showed me

how to make dancers with

the bleeding heart flower.

It’s a universal shape, and

it’s something that is very

dear to me,” Tang said.

“Heart and Soul”, a new series of artwork from Maureen

Claffey and Diane Feldpausch Tang, is currently on

display at the Re-Invent Gallery in Lake Forest. The

exhibit opened on Friday, Oct. 7 from 6-9 p.m. and will

run through Nov. 12. Photo Submitted

You make it home, we make it beautiful

The image of the heart

is also found throughout

Claffey’s paintings.

“All of the heart images

in the show are so elegant

and beautiful that it really

forces you to question your

own concept of how seriously,

or with how much

joy, you approach love,”

Claffey said. “I think this

show is really a unique

opportunity to get a multidimensional

experience of

the same concept of love;

to see it in sculpture form,

1840 Skokie Boulevard, Northbrook, IL 60062

but also to see it as painting,

it almost compounds

the positive experience of

a joyful, beautiful image.”

To the Electors of the State of Illinois:

The Illinois Constitution establishes a structure for government and laws. There are three ways to initiate change to the Illinois Constitution: (1) a constitutional convention may propose changes to any part;

(2) the General Assembly may propose changes to any part; or (3) a petition initiative may propose amendments limited to structural and procedural subjects contained in the Legislative Article. The people of

Illinois must approve any changes to the Constitution before they become effective. The purpose of this document is to inform you of proposed changes to the Illinois Constitution and provide you with a brief

explanation and a summary of the arguments in favor of and in opposition to the proposed amendment.

Proposed changes in the existing constitutional amendment are indicated by underscoring all new matter and by crossing with a line all matter which is to be deleted.




(a) No moneys, including bond proceeds, derived from taxes, fees, excises, or license taxes relating to registration, title, or operation or use of vehicles, or related to the use of highways, roads, streets, bridges,

mass transit, intercity passenger rail, ports, airports, or to fuels used for propelling vehicles, or derived from taxes, fees, excises, or license taxes relating to any other transportation infrastructure or transportation

operation, shall be expended for purposes other than as provided in subsections (b) and (c).

(b) Transportation funds may be expended for the following: the costs of administering laws related to vehicles and transportation, including statutory refunds and adjustments provided in those laws; payment of

highway obligations; costs for construction, reconstruction, maintenance, repair, and betterment of highways, roads, streets, bridges, mass transit, intercity passenger rail, ports, airports, or other forms of transportation;

and other statutory highway purposes. Transportation funds may also be expended for the State or local share of highway funds to match federal aid highway funds, and expenses of grade separation

of highways and railroad crossings, including protection of at-grade highways and railroad crossings, and, with respect to local governments, other transportation purposes as authorized by law.

(c) The costs of administering laws related to vehicles and transportation shall be limited to direct program expenses related to the following: the enforcement of traffic, railroad, and motor carrier laws; the safety

of highways, roads, streets, bridges, mass transit, intercity passenger rail, ports, or airports; and the construction, reconstruction, improvement, repair, maintenance, operation, and administration of highways,

under any related provisions of law or any purpose related or incident to, including grade separation of highways and railroad crossings. The limitations to the costs of administering laws related to vehicles and

transportation under this subsection (c) shall also include direct program expenses related to workers’ compensation claims for death or injury of employees of the State’s transportation agency; the acquisition of

land and the erection of buildings for highway purposes, including the acquisition of highway rights-of-way or for investigations to determine the reasonable anticipated future highway needs; and the making of

surveys, plans, specifications, and estimates for the construction and maintenance of flight strips and highways. The expenses related to the construction and maintenance of flight strips and highways under this

subsection (c) are for the purpose of providing access to military and naval reservations, defense-industries, defense-industry sites, and sources of raw materials, including the replacement of existing highways

and highway connections shut off from general use at military and naval reservations, defense-industries, and defense-industry sites, or the purchase of rights-of-way.

(d) None of the revenues described in subsection (a) of this Section shall, by transfer, offset, or otherwise, be diverted to any purpose other than those described in subsections (b) and (c) of this Section.

(e) If the General Assembly appropriates funds for a mode of transportation not described in this Section, the General Assembly must provide for a dedicated source of funding.

(f) Federal funds may be spent for any purposes authorized by federal law.


The proposed amendment adds a new Section to the Revenue Article of the Illinois Constitution that provides revenue generated from transportation related taxes and fees (referred to as “transportation funds”)

shall be used exclusively for transportation related purposes. Transportation related taxes and fees include motor fuel taxes, vehicle registration fees, and other taxes and user fees dedicated to public highways,

roads, streets, bridges, mass transit (buses and rail), ports, or airports.

Under the proposed amendment, transportation funds may be used by the State or local governments only for the following purposes: (1) costs related to administering transportation and vehicle laws, including

public safety purposes and the payment of obligations such as bonds; (2) the State or local share necessary to secure federal funds or for local government transportation purposes as authorized by law; (3)

the construction, reconstruction, improvement, repair, maintenance, and operation of highways, mass transit, and railroad crossings; (4) expenses related to workers’ compensation claims for death or injury of

transportation agency employees; and (5) to purchase land for building highways or buildings for to be used for highway purposes.

This new Section is a limitation on the power of the General Assembly or a unit of local government to use, divert, or transfer transportation funds for a purpose other than transportation. It does not, and is not intended

to, impact or change the way in which the State and local governments use sales taxes, including the sales and excise tax on motor fuel, or alter home rule powers granted under this Constitution. It does not

seek to change the way in which the State funds programs administered by the Illinois Secretary of State, Illinois Department of Transportation, and operations by the Illinois State Police directly dedicated to the

safety of roads, or entities or programs funded by units of local government. Further, the Section does not impact the expenditure of federal funds, which may be spent for any purpose authorized by federal law.


Proposed Amendment to the 1970 Illinois Constitution

Explanation of Amendment

The proposed amendment adds a new section to the Revenue Article of the Illinois Constitution. The proposed amendment provides that no moneys derived from taxes, fees, excises, or license taxes, relating to

registration, titles, operation, or use of vehicles or public highways, roads, streets, bridges, mass transit, intercity passenger rail, ports, or airports, or motor fuels, including bond proceeds, shall be expended for

other than costs of administering laws related to vehicles and transportation, costs for construction, reconstruction, maintenance, repair, and betterment of public highways, roads, streets, bridges, mass transit,

intercity passenger rail, ports, airports, or other forms of transportation, and other statutory highway purposes, including the State or local share to match federal aid highway funds. You are asked to decide

whether the proposed amendment should become part of the Illinois Constitution.


–––– For the proposed addition of Section 11 to Article IX of the Illinois Constitution.

Every business owner

has a dream.

Three decades ago, David

and Cari Borris’ dream

was to run a shop specializing

in gourmet retail carryout.

The husband-andwife

team built out a space

in Highland Park that

opened in April 1985.

The response from the

community was strong,

so much that a mere two

years later, their business,

Hel’s Kitchen — named

after David’s mother Helen,

the company’s first

chef — had transformed

into a catering company to

meet customers’ demand.

Hel’s Kitchen moved to

Northbrook in 1989 and

multiple expansions later,

now occupies a warehouse

and office at 3027 Commercial


“It’s kind of a classic

story,” David Borris said.

“You open up a business

and then the market directs

you where they want you

to go. We were, I guess,

fortunate enough, smart

enough — maybe more

fortunate than smart — to

move where the market

wanted us to go and turn

it into a successful business.”

The Borris’ catering operation

offers a range of

cuisine, from high-level

comfort food to what David

likes to call “West

Randolph Street,” after the

vibrant restaurant district

in downtown Chicago.

Prices are set to match the

quality of food, ranging

from $35-50 per person

for small parties requiring

a couple of staffers,

to $80-140 per person for

full-service events.

About 40-45 percent of

business is corporate catering,

David Borris said,

with the remainder being

and avocado aioli, and paired with coleslaw and sweet

potato and beet chips. Photos by Alyssa Groh/22nd

Century Media

The panko-breaded chicken is stuffed with prosciutto,

spinach, smoked gouda, roasted red pepper and paired

with a thyme cream sauce.

mainly social events: weddings,

funerals, religious


The milestone events

were a lifeline for Hel’s

Kitchen when the recession

hit and corporate demand

took a nose dive.

Sales fell nearly 20 percent

in 2009 and didn’t return

to pre-recession levels for

a few years, David said.

To survive, he cut staff

salaries across the board,

including his own.

His staff stuck with the

company, and they stayed

afloat thanks to company

savings and the life-cycle

events, which continued

despite the economy.

“Look, when trouble

comes like it came in ’08

and ’09,” Borris said, “if

How long have you been golfing and

how did you get started with it?

I started golf a month before tryouts my

freshman year, so this will be my fourth

year playing.

What is your favorite club to hit


I have a club that I call ‘special club’,

it’s a 7-wood which is why I call it special,

because it’s weirdly shaped.

Where is your favorite course to


I really like Pine Meadow Golf Course

(in Mundelein), that’s my favorite around

here but overall my favorite course is

Kapalua Golf Course in Hawaii. I’ve been

out there every Spring Break and it’s really


What kind of music do you listen to

before a golf meet?

I love ‘70s music, Steely Dan is my jam,

as is Michael Jackson. Anything ‘70s and

early ‘80s, anything after 1985 is too late.

What do you usually eat before a


Anything, really, but I mostly like to

stick to fruits, particularly apples.

If you could have any superpower,

which would you choose?

I’d choose to go back in time, for the

good, obviously but I feel that while

everyone learns from their mistakes,

sometimes they don’t apply what they’ve

learned fast enough so I would use that to

correct some of the things I’ve done. And

world, where would you go?

I’ve always wanted to go to Thailand

because I’m Thai and I’ve never been.

What’s the most challenging shot

for you to hit in golf?

I don’t think there’s any shot in particular

that’s tough. I just think it comes down

to believing in yourself. If you don’t think

you can do it, then you won’t do it, so any

shot is doable as long as you believe in


What’s the best coaching advice

you’ve ever received?

I’ve had the opportunity and privilege of

being around really good people and I think

the best advice is that no matter who you’re

you’re never really competing against

other people, you’re only really competing

against the course and against yourself.

What’s the best part of being an

Second half surge powers

Scouts past Zee-Bees

Once a week is weak.

You don’t have to wait until the paper

arrives for your news.

Derek Wolff, Sports Editor

With both offenses

struggling mightily in the

first half, it was difficult

to foresee the oncoming

blowout that Lake Forest’s

matchup with Zion-Benton

turned into on Friday,

Oct. 7, at Lake Forest High

School’s West Campus.

But the Scouts (4-3, 2-3

NSC) got a boost in all

three phases of the game

and especially on offense

in the second half to run

away from the Zee-Bees,

“We found a great

rhythm,” head coach Chuck

Spagnoli said. “I think the

opening drive was very

successful, it was probably

eight or nine plays and then

we got the ball in. A little

confidence is an incredible

thing, I thought they responded

very well to being

inconsistent overall in the

first half.”

all evening and his offensive

line didn’t do him any

favors. Powell was sacked

Lake Forest def. Zion-Benton, 25-9,


Lake Forest (25-2, 3-2) defeated


From Page 31

Lake Forest came into

the matchup not having

given up a goal since Labor

Day weekend, a streak

of 11 consecutive shutouts.

The Scouts also boasted a

perfect record against instate

teams. On the other

hand, Lake Forest is the

only Illinois team to beat

the Trevians (15-5) this

season, when the Scouts

won 3-2 in overtime at

home on Aug. 27.

That changed at the

12:13 mark of the first half,

“The girls were able to

hang with us a little longer

than most teams,”

Lake Forest coach Melanie

Walsh said. “We really

haven’t had much competition.”

“I think us losing some

the season when we gave

like to lose, it’s helped us

adjust what we need to do.”

The first half featured

much more action in the

first as the teams combined

for 12 shots in the first half

and six corners, compared

to six shots and one corner.

The Trevians had one last

chance around the twominute

mark when a cross

went wide of the goal.

“The second half was a

lot more midfield and we

were not that great in the

first half, but now we know

how to keep the ball out

of the cage,” Nykaza said.

“We’re putting it together

now and this is huge because

it’s going to let us

take a look at where we are

going to playoffs.”

The Scouts (16-2) had

the first chance in the 6-on-

6, 10-minute overtime, but

their shot went wide. The

Trevians had their first true

chance with 3:40 remaining,

but their shot also went


“Our girls were gassed,”

Walsh said. “They’re an

aggressive team, the refs

were holding the whistle

and my girls are a finesse

team and it frustrated them

a bit because they weren’t

getting the calls they would

normally get.”

But with just under two

minutes remaining, New

Trier got the corner it needed

to help it seal the win.

“We had a corner and

Meghan Minturn took the

shot,” Van Schaack said. “It

just touched the tip of my

stick and went between the

goalie’s legs.”

As the top two teams in

the area, it’s likely Lake

Forest and New Trier will

see each other in the state


“I don’t think there’s

anything that can boost our

team’s confidence [more]

than beating Lake Forest,”

Van Schaack said. “From

now on, we know exactly

how this team plays and we

can use what we’ve learned

in this game in the state


Walsh looked forward to

a rematch with the Trevians

down the road.

“They weren’t able to use

the finesse they normally

do, but we’ll adjust,” Walsh

said. ”We’ll see them in the

state finals.”

Loyola offense, lightning shut down Scouts

Derek Wolff, Sports Editor


Loyola Academy’s Collin Leider (16 white) wins a

header against his counterpart, Lake Forest’s Jack

Page (16), during the Ramblers 4-0 defeat of the Scouts

on Thursday, Oct. 6, from Loyola Academy’s Munz

Campus in Glenview. Derek Wolff/22nd Century Media

Standing atop the hill at

Loyola Academy’s Theodore

G. Munz S.J. Campus

is unlike most places in the

North Shore.

Beyond the array of uniform

turf soccer fields, the

layers of clouds off to the

west appear as a mountain

range, a pellucid reflection

of the color palette created

by the setting sun. It is a

beautiful venue to take in

the beautiful game.

As the darkness crept in

throughout the course of

Lake Forest’s Thursday,

Oct. 6, match with Loyola

however, a lightning storm

replaced the picturesque

background, eventually

ending the match 20 minutes

early with the host

Ramblers up, 4-0.

Loyola used several

lightning strikes of its own

to overwhelm Lake Forest

in the first half as its

offense hummed to a 3-0

halftime lead.

The Ramblers pressed

early with a number of forays

into the Scouts’ defensive

third before breaking

the deadlock in the fourth


Junior midfielder Nick

Lew found himself in the

right place at the right time

inside the 6-yard box to capitalize

on a second-chance

play for the first goal.

In the 10th minute, senior

midfielder Julian Hilpusch

doubled the lead, playing a

ball in off his body after a

cross from midfielder Collin


Sophomore midfielder

David Gripman made it 3-0

with five minutes to play

in the first half, benefitting

from an excellent through

ball into the 18-yard box.

Gripman slipped behind

the Lake Forest backline

and found himself one-onone

with Scouts freshman

goalkeeper John Walsh,

who got a finger or two on

the shot as it rushed by him

into the lower corner at the

near post.

Both sides made tactical

changes at halftime, while

the Scouts also changed out

goalkeepers to bring on senior

Riley Perkofski for the

second half.

After securing the third

goal, Loyola reduced its

attacking runs in the second

half and was content

to play a counterattacking

game, while Lake Forest-

-seeking to get back in the

contest--changed its formation

to a more aggressive


As such, the Scouts

gained more of a foothold at

midfield and made advances

into the attacking third,

where Loyola’s stout back

line refused to yield ground.

Catching Lake Forest

pressing forward, an early

counterattack from Loyola

nearly resulted in a fourth

goal in the 42nd minute

when Leider’s shot from

inside the 6-yard box rang

off the top of the crossbar.

Lake Forest’s best opportunity

in the match came

from about 28 yards out

from captain Daniel Hanson

on a rocketed shot towards

the low corner of the

near post.

Hanson beat his defender

to earn a few yards of space

before unfurling the longrange

effort, which Loyola

goalkeeper Jack McMenamin

had to punch away

with a diving save.

The ball went out of

bounds, giving Lake Forest

its first corner kick of the

evening, though the ensuing

effort was harmlessly

cleared back out into midfield

by the Ramblers.

Loyola earned a corner

kick in the 58th minute

that was cleared out into

the midfield, but when

the Ramblers caught the

Scouts pressing they turned

another counterattack into

the night’s final goal two

minutes later.

After viewing several

more lightning strikes

and sensing the oncoming

storm, the officials convened

before the restart and

decided to blow the final


Lake Forest, an 18 seed,

will begin its playoff run

with a matchup against

Fremd in Palatine on Saturday,

Oct. 15, while Loyola

Academy, a 7 seed, will

travel to Evanston to take

on Taft on Tuesday, Oct.

It takes a team

Scouts qualify for

sectionals thanks

to extra effort

Derek Wolff, Sports Editor

Every No. 5 and No. 6

high school golfer, in every

tournament, must be

ready to step up when the

opportune moment arises.

Usually, each team’s

top four players are the

ones whose scores count

toward the team’s overall

tally, though occassionally

the fifth and sixth players

make their mark.

Clare Green made hers

for Lake Forest on Oct. 5

in an IHSA Regional from

Deerpath Golf Course in

Lake Forest, carding a

crucial 88 that helped the

Scouts secure the third and

final qualifying team score

in the meet.

Barrington ran away

with the competition, winning

the regional with a

team score of 309 thanks

in large part to the efforts

of meet medalist Nicole

Ciskowski (71) and runner-up

Reena Sulkar.

Buffalo Grove finished

second at 352, narrowly

edging out Lake Forest

and Highland Park, which

both finished at 353.

Senior Nicole Berardi

led the way for the Giants,

carding a team-high 84,

while junior Lexi Kovitz

(85) and sophomores Julia

Shafir (86) and Jennifer

Berardi (98) factored into

the scoring.

Lena Benjakul posted

the top score for the

Scouts, shooting an 88

including a back-nine 42

after largely abandoning

her driver on the final nine

holes. Erin Shalala (88),

Isabella Martino (89) and

Green also factored into

the scroing for Lake Forest.

Ultimately it wasn’t the

best day for Lake Forest

No. 2 player Julia Loginhov,

but her fifth best 98

for the Scouts was enough

to win the tiebreaker with

Highland Park, which

qualified Lake Forest

through to sectionals as a


With four sophomores

gradually improving

throughout the year and

led by Benjakul, Scouts

coach Steve Johnson felt

the team had a strong

chance to advance heading

into play Wednesday


“We had to have a great

day today from everybody,

one through six and it was

our depth that really paid

off,” Johnson said. “Clare

Green had her best round

of the year. Everybody

came to play and peaked at

the right time so it was a

good team place.”

Apart from Barrington,

Buffalo Grove and Lake

Forest, the next 10 best indiviudal

scorers also qualified

for sectionals, meaning

Nicole Berardi, Kovitz

and Shafir all advanced.

Placing three individuals

offered Giants coach

Cathy Nachman some

measure of solace.

“It’s really been a fourhorse

team the whole season

and it wasn’t a good

day for one of them and

that’s how it goes,” Nachman

said. “The three of

them deserve to move on

and we’ll just focus on


For Nicole Berardi,

sectionals means another

chance to qualify for state,

while for Kovitz it’ll be

her second-straight apperance.

The experience will

perhaps be most beneficial

to Shafir, Nachman said.

“I think that is a really

big step and Julia has really

made that jump this

year. It’s good because

Nicole gets another shot

at it and Lexi has more experience

now, so it’s OK.

Hopefully (the regional

result) will just make them

all hungrier.”

The Giants won the Central

Suburban League’s

northern division this season

and played well in dual

meets all season, prompting

some dissapointment

with the regional result.

But Nachman has witnessed

too much golf

through the years to be bitter

about one missed putt

or a drive that landed in

a sand trap, anything that

could have affected the

team score enough to see

the entire Highland Park

team progress through to

the next round.

“That’s the beauty of

this game, it’s the same

for everyone, so you can’t

beat yourself up,” she said.

“Today isn’t an indication

of what we accomplished

throughout the whole season,

it’s just not. Tomorrow

is a new day.”

As Lake Forest’s No. 1

player, Benjakul had high

hopes for herself and her

teammates coming into the

meet thanks to fair weather.

She praised the total

team mentality the Scouts

have embraced throughout

the season.

“I’m so proud of our

team; it was definitely a

team effort day,” Benjakul

said. “Everyone played so

well and special shoutout

to Clare Green because

this is the best she’s ever

played and I was really

proud of her that she was

Barrington’s 309 tied

for second best of the 16

Illinois teams to win a

while both Lake Forest

and Highland Park’s team

scores would have tied for

first at the Plainfield North

regional and would have

won the Mundelein (Carmel)


Both the Scouts and Giants

representatives competed

at the Buffalo Grove

sectional on Monday, Oct.

10, though results were not

complete as of press time.

Heading into the meet,

Johnson expressed confidence

in his team.

“I think it’s going to be a

great learning experience,”

Johnson said. “For all of

the sophomores it will be

their first time at sectionals

so if nothing else it will

be great experience for the

next two years for them.

With Lena leading us, I

think we have a chance.

We’re a good team, a deep

team so we’ll have as good

a chance as anyone.”
