Orland residents gather to honor veterans

Brittany Kapa, Assistant Editor

With rain threatening to

ruin the festivities from

a distance, Mayor Dan

McLaughlin welcomed veterans,

family members and

friends to a ceremony dedicated

to those who served

this country at the Orland

Park Veterans’ Memorial,

Ara Pace — Place of Peace.

In the largest ceremony

yet, according to McLaughlin,

the crowd endured the

brisk winds Friday, Nov.

11, to honor the men and

women whose names adorn

the surrounding black granite

walls. The memorial is

located at 14700 Ravinia

Ave., and the event included

a color guard presentation,

a speech from McLaughlin

and a wreath presented in

front of the memorial.

Family and friends looked

on as McLaughlin welcomed

the crowd and later read off

the 50 names that had been

added to the memorial this

year. McLaughlin urged the

crowd to think about the

reasons why veterans served

and what they sacrificed to

do so, saying that residents

should “remember their

achievements, their courage

and their dedication, and to

say ‘thank you’ for [those]

sacrifices.”

Veterans and active military

members alike were in

attendance that morning,

with whole families celebrating

their loved one’s

achievements.

Thomas J. Clarke was

honored at the ceremony.

His name, along with his

two brothers and father,

will forever have a place on

those granite walls.

“I’m very appreciative,”

Clarke said. “Recognition is

always nice. Permanent recognition

is even better.”

Retired United States Army Sgt. Michael Mrdalj, who served in Afghanistan, was one of the

50 new veterans who had their names engraved on the Orland Park’s Veterans’ Memorial.

Clarke’s sister, said she felt

it was time to honor not only

her dad and her late brother’s

memory but also her

two living brothers, as well.

The Clarke men posed for

a photo in uniform several

years ago, and that family

photo hangs in the lobby of

the Orland Park Civic Center.

Gira said she initially

wanted the engravings to be

a surprise, but after a second

thought decided it was more

important for her entire family

to be at the ceremony.

Clarke was able to share

Meadow Ridge honors hometown heroes with Veterans Day assembly

Laurie Fanelli, Freelance Reporter

Staff Sgt. Matthew Tybor shares his experience and advice with Meadow Ridge School students Friday, Nov. 11, during a Veterans Day assembly at

the school. Photos by Laurie Fanelli/22nd Century Media

Marine Corps veteran Greg Hall — also a custodian at Meadow Ridge —

receives “thank you” cards from several students.

Veterans Day allows citizens

across the United States to honor

the brave men and women of the

military who have fought for the

freedoms we all enjoy.

This past Friday, Nov. 11, Meadow

Ridge School in Orland Park

took the opportunity to say a big

“thank you” to local service members

with a special assembly.

“This is my first year here at

Meadow Ridge, and some of the

teachers had approached me to

bring back a Veterans Day assembly,”

Meadow Ridge Assistant

Principal Colleen Joyce said. “It’s

always something that I’ve done

in my past schools, so this year

— along with the help of student

council — we decided to focus on

alumni. A couple of the teachers

came up with different blurbs that

we sent out to the newspapers, and

it took off. The response was great,

and here we are today.”

Throughout the assembly, which

began with members of the fifthgrade

choir — directed by music

teacher Felicia Burkovskiy —

singing the “Star-Spangled Banner,”

local military members who

graduated from Meadow Ridge

shared videos of gratitude with the

student body from their current stations

with the military. Naval aviator

Lt. Patrick DeMatteo thanked

the community for its support in a

short clip, and encouraged Meadow

Ridge students to enjoy their

time at the school, because it goes

by faster than they think.

Several south suburban veterans

were on hand at the event, including

Meadow Ridge Class of 1999

member Staff Sgt. Matthew Tybor,

who shared some of his experiences

training and traveling in the

Army National Guard.

“I’m very honored and very

thankful for this opportunity,” he

said, prior to taking the podium

at the event. “It’s great to make a

difference in the community. Most

veterans will say if you can make a

difference in one, it was all worth

it.”

Later, during his speech, Tybor

emphasized the sacrifice of

military families and invited students

to thank them for their commitment

to the country. His own

relatives, including his mother,

Nancy, sister Marissa and nieces

Courtney and Kaylee were proudly

in attendance, as he addressed

the assembly.

Students lit up when Tybor displayed

photographs from his trip to

the pyramids, which he considers

to be one of the highlights of his

military experience, along with the

Music teacher Felicia Burkovskiy plays the piano, as all of the student

body sings “America the Beautiful.”

friendships he made.

Before taking questions from

students, he left everyone with a

few final pieces of advice — “always

continue to learn” and “treat

everyone with dignity and respect.”

These wise words echoed

in the minds of those in attendance,

as all of Meadow Ridge joined together

in song for “This Land Is

Your Land” near the end of the presentation.

Orland Park Village Board

Expenditures expected to be $147.41 million in 2017

Officials: Levy to

remain the same,

budget to be

balanced

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

Orland Park’s 2017 budget

is one step closer to becoming

reality.

The Village Board members

briefly discussed the

budget Nov. 7 during the

regular meeting. Originally

presented in September,

small changes have been

made over the course of several

special meetings.

“Our final revenue budget

is $139,517,447,” Finance

Director Annmarie Mampe

said. “Our final expenditure

budget is $147,410,925. The

difference between the two

is fund balance, which we

have every year, in terms of

savings of the prior year that

we roll into the subsequent

year’s budget. We do set

aside our reserves that are

required by board policy before

we start the budget, so

these are excess funds that

were available that we can

utilize for 2017.”

Mayor Dan McLaughlin

also touched upon the differences

in the revenues and expenditures

in his comments.

“As the year progresses,

things that we have put into

the budget for the prior year

that either don’t get done or

come in under bid or other

savings … or our income

comes in higher than anticipated,

any of those excess

funds go into our fund balance,

our savings account,”

McLaughlin said. “By the

time we are doing the next

year’s budget, our savings

account has grown enough

to where we can take money

out of it to use for projects

and other items we want to

put into this year’s budget.”

Trustee Carole Griffin Ruzich

said the budget contains

no new revenue sources or

taxes.

“And the levy is remaining

the same, and it’s a balanced

budget — things we

should all be proud of,” Ruzich

said.

Mampe said the public

hearing and formal approval

of the budget is tentatively

set for the Dec. 5 meeting.

Mampe said the budget will

be available at Village Hall

for public viewing by Friday,

Nov. 18.

McLaughlin added that

the budget will be viewable

online, as well.

Liquor license fees going up

Unlike the budget, liquor

licenses will be seeing a

slight change over the next

two years.

“We just got done saying

no new taxes and no new

fees, and that is basically

true,” McLaughlin said.

“But I’m the liquor commissioner,

and the liquor license

fee has not been raised in

many years. We decided to

raise the liquor license fee

for establishments that serve

or sell liquor by 10 percent

over the next two years.”

He said the fee will go up

5 percent in 2017, and an additional

5 percent in 2018.

Village Board members

approved the change in a 7-0

vote.

Nonresident denied request

to use sewer system

During the Public Works

Committee meeting, a request

from a nonresident to

tap into the Village’s sewer

system was denied.

“This is kind of a culmination

of monthslong discussions

between staff, myself

and the Gaskos,” Trustee

Michael Carroll said. “They

live in unincorporated Palos

Township, and they have

been asking us to extend

mainly sewer services to their

property. As has been discussed

at a previous meeting,

since we bill our sewer based

on water rate consumption

we couldn’t extend the sewer

without the water.”

Lenny Gasko had asked

trustees at a previous meeting

to consider allowing his

property to tap into to the

Village’s water and sewer

lines because of sewage issues

during rainstorms. He

said he would be willing to

pay for the engineering and

other costs, citing the emergency

nature of his situation.

Carroll said the request

falls under Ordinance No.

3698, in Section 4-1-4,

which states, “No water and/

or sanitary sewer service

will be furnished or supplied

by the Village to unincorporated

areas.”

He said Section 4-1-5

talks about certain exceptions,

but it was his and

staff’s determination that the

Gaskos request did not meet

those listed.

“The first … is that the

water and/or sanitary sewer

mains, which would serve

the property in question, immediately

abuts the property

and no extension of publically

maintained water and/

or sewer mains is required,”

Carroll said. “That’s not the

case here.”

Another exception would

be if the extension was necessary

and in the best interest

of the Village in order to

obtain a grant of easement or

right of way in favor of Orland

Park.

“Being that this is unincorporated

Palos Township,

I think staff has determined

this is not the case,” Carroll

said.

Public Works Director

John Ingram provided Carroll

with 17 applications

that have been made to tap

into Orland Park’s water

and sewer system since

2002, when the ordinance

was adopted. Ingram said

there were four denials and

Round It Up

A brief recap of action and discussion from the Nov.

7 meeting of the Orland Park Village Board and its

committees.

• The Public Works Committee members, in a 3-0

vote, recommended to the Village Board a transfer of

funds and a payment of $41,519.44 to Airy’s Inc., of

Tinley Park, for emergency sanitary sewer line repairs.

Damage was caused to the sanitary sewer line system

by a subcontractor on the LaGrange Road project.

Trustee Michael Carroll said Police Chief Tim McCarthy

issued citations to the company in order to recoup the

funds to pay for the repairs.

• During his comments to the board, Mayor Dan

McLaughlin noted his mother died this past week. He

thanked staff, the board members and the residents of

Orland Park for their “overwhelming show of support.”

13 approvals.

“But the 13 approvals

were all instances in which

the water and sanitary did

not have to be extended …

they were already contiguous

to the property,” Ingram

said. “The four denials were

specifically in instances

where the extension needed

to occur.”

Based on the lack of criteria

being met for an exception,

Carroll said he had to

go by the Village ordinance,

as written.

“We’re bound by the ordinance,

unless we change

[it],” Carroll said.

Trustee James Dodge

asked if there had been any

recent discussion about

bringing in the entire whole

subdivision.

Carroll said at previous

meetings the Gaskos have

told him that the subdivision

in which they live was not interested

in annexing into the

Village, which would allow

for the tap into the water system.

Gasko disputed that during

the committee meeting,

stating he had not yet spoken

with all the other residents at

the time but would do so.

“Nobody on the board has

given me an answer on what

number of a percentage [it]

has to be [to be] approved,”

Gasko said. “There are a lot

of people that want to do it.”

He said his whole street

is willing to do it; however,

staff directed Gasko that 100

percent of the subdivision

would have to agree.

The committee members

voted 3-0 to deny the request.

From Page 3

the moment with his sister,

but not all who had their

names engraved were able

to share it with the person

who made the engraving

happen.

United States Army Sgt.

Michael Mrdalj, 37, said he

was surprised to learn that

an anonymous person paid

to have his name engraved

alongside so many other

veterans. Having served

two campaigns in Afghanistan,

Mrdalj returned and

was medically retired in

2014 at 80 percent disabled.

“It means the world to

me,” Mrdalj said of the recognition.

“I wish I could

know who it was, just to

give them thanks, but at the

same time I feel like it was a

blessing.”

Active military members

were in attendance at the

ceremony, as well. Rebecca

Buhs, a 20-year-old Orland

Park resident, enlisted in the

army this past year. Buhs is

a Private First Class in the

935th Aviation Battalion.

“I’ve come every year

since eighth grade,” Buhs

said of the ceremony. “I

come every year on my

own. It’s the veterans here

that motivated me to join.”

Buhs said she received

thanks from what seemed

like the entire crowd, including

some of the veterans

at the ceremony. Buhs

said she was honored to

receive thanks from veterans

who are 30 or 40 years

her senior. She said it was

moments like these that solidified

her dedication to the

armed forces.

“That’s really what gets

me tearing up, is when past

military [veterans] thank me

for my service,” Buhs said.

“I always tell them, ‘No,

thank you.’”

U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush rides wave of

Chicago support to re-election in D1

Tim Carroll

Contributing Editor

Bobby

Rush, the incumbent

representative

of Illinois’

1st Congressional

District,

was reelected

to the

Rush

U.S. House of Representatives

Nov. 8.

Rush defeated Republican

challenger August (O’Neill)

Deuser, utilizing substantial

support from Chicago precincts

to return to Congress.

Rush earned a total of

231,573 votes (or 74.12

percent) across Chicago,

suburban Cook County and

Will County, which beat

Deuser’s 80,839 (25.88

percent), according to unofficial

results from the Will

County Clerk’s Office, the

Cook County Clerk’s Office

and the Board of Election

Commissioners for the City

of Chicago. According to

those office’s websites, all

609 precincts had reported.

Rush found his greatest

margin of victory in Chicago,

where a total of 175,593

ballots were cast. Of those,

167,995 votes (95.67 percent)

went Rush’s way,

while Deuser earned just

7.598 votes (4.33 percent).

Rush earned more votes

in the suburban Cook County

portion of the district,

as well, but the separation

was much thinner. In suburban

Cook County, Rush

earned 47,841 votes (53.88

percent), while Deuser garnered

40,495 (46.12 percent).

Deuser found his greatest

success in Will County,

where he earned 32,296

votes (67.24 percent), compared

to Rush’s 15,737

(32.76 percent).

All election results are

considered unofficial until a

canvassing of votes is completed,

and absentee, provisional

and grace period ballots

are counted.

After it was clear that

the wave of support from

Chicago voters would help

return Rush to Congress,

Deuser said he did not realistically

expect to be the

victor.

“I didn’t think that I was

going to win in the first

place, but I thought that

I could get out there and

reach some people in suburban

Cook and Will County

for the future,” Deuser said.

“The district was gerrymandered

by [Speaker of the Illinois

House of Representatives

Michael] Madigan, so

I gave it a good shot, but I

was the underdog to begin

with.”

Deuser said he did not

plan to call Rush to concede,

as he did not believe

the incumbent thought he

would lose. But Deuser said

his 2016 campaign will not

be his final foray into politics.

“I’ll be running for office

again,” Deuser said.

He said he did not know

for which office he would

run, but he said he would

choose an office that he has

a better chance of winning.

As of press time, Rush

had not responded to requests

for comment on his

victory.

No contest: Local candidates

retain seats without competition

Bill Jones, Editor

On Election Night, Nov. 8,

more candidates than not ran

unopposed.

Still, as is the process, their

names appeared on ballots,

and voters had the opportunity

to either give them a nod of

support, or ignore them and

move onto the next question.

The following is a list of

uncontested candidates who

won their seats without facing

any competition in the

General Election, according

to unofficial results from the

Cook County Clerk’s Office,

the Chicago Board of

Election Commissioners,

the Will County Clerk’s Office

and the DuPage County

Clerk’s Office.

Congressional District 3

Incumbent Daniel William

Lipinski retained his

seat in the Third Congressional

District.

In suburban Cook County,

he received 120,423 votes

out of 158,563 total ballots

cast. In Chicago, he received

another 70,469 votes. In Will

County, he received 29,844

votes (or 95.47 percent),

while write-in candidates

drew 1,417 votes (or 4.53 percent).

And in DuPage County,

he received 509 votes out of

Township voters challenge lawmakers

to focus more on climate change

Residents divided on

idea of leaving Cook

County for Will

F. Amanda Tugade

Contributing Editor

Orland Township residents

want to see their state

leaders and officials take on

more initiative to address

the threats posed by climate

change.

According to unofficial

results from the Cook

County Clerk’s Office, an

overwhelming amount of

Township voters — 73.52

percent, or 33,615 total

votes, with all precincts

reporting — marked “yes”

Nov. 8 in response to a

Climate Change advisory

referendum that asked

whether representatives and

Election 2016

senators in U.S. Congress

should sponsor or support

measures that “will acknowledge

serious threats

posed by climate change

and reduce greenhouse gas

emissions in a clear, transparent,

effective way.”

Orland Township Supervisor

Paul O’Grady said

that consensus “seems to

send a strong message to

our Congressional leaders.”

Township residents, however,

seemed to be divided

when it came to the Transfer

Territory advisory referendum,

which asked whether

Orland Township should

leave Cook County for Will

County, he added.

The clerk’s office reported

that in response to

the advisory ballot question

53.9 percent of Township

residents (24,459 voters)

voted to leave Cook County,

while the remaining 46.1

percent (20,923 voters)

want to stay.

“I think it’s a little bit of a

tougher call,” O’Grady said

of the results. “I think the

voters are saying not at this

time, right?”

He added that overall the

feedback he has received

from residents has been

helpful in understanding

their thoughts of the two issues

at hand.

“We now know what the

voters want, and we now

know they clearly want our

congressional leaders to

address climate change,”

he said. “And I think it’s

more of a toss-up when we

get down to a question of

whether at this time if the

voters really are prepared

to leave Cook County.”

State Rep. Hurley retains D35 with a

wave of Chicago support, besting Horne

Bill Jones, Editor

Democratic incumbent

State Rep. Frances Ann

Hurley retained her seat in

the 35th District on Election

Night by a landslide,

thanks to an overwhelming

vote of support from her

Chicago constituents, while

the race saw a closer margin

in the suburbs.

Hurley earned a total of

33,987 votes (or 65.54 percent)

across Chicago and

suburban Cook County on

Tuesday, Nov. 8, besting

Republican Victor Horne’s

17,869 votes (34.46 percent),

according to unofficial

results from the Cook

County Clerk’s Office and

the Board of Election Commissioners

for the City of

Chicago, with all precincts

reporting.

Hurley dominated Chicago,

where a total of 24,253

ballots were cast, with all

precincts reporting. Of

those, 19,616 votes (80.88

percent) were in favor of

Hurley, while Horne earned

just 4,637 votes (19.12 percent).

Hurley earned more

votes in the suburban Cook

County portion of her district,

as well, but the margin

was closer. There, Hurley

earned 14,371 votes (52.06

percent), while Horne

pulled 13,232 (47.94 percent),

with all precincts reporting.

All election results are

considered unofficial until a

canvassing of votes is completed,

and absentee, provisional

and grace period ballots

are counted.

A representative for Hurley

said she was unavailable

on Election Night for

comment on her expected

victory.

FROM THE NEW LENOX PATRIOT

Fire district seeks residents’

support in Wreaths Across

America campaign

For the second year, the

New Lenox Fire Protection

District is participating

in the nationwide Wreaths

Across America campaign,

aiming to place wreaths

on 1,800 grave sites in one

section of Abraham Lincoln

National Cemetery in Elwood.

Fire Chief Steve Engledow

brought the tradition to

the district, and he has been

participating in Wreaths

Across America for the past

five years.

Engledow’s father was

a veteran of World War II,

and Engledow considers

participation in the event a

way to give back.

This past year, the district

was able to raise approximately

$6,000 for wreaths,

which were placed on approximately

400 grave sites.

Each wreath costs $15.

Wreaths Across America

is scheduled to take place

Dec. 17 at the cemetery,

which has a total of approximately

43,000 grave sites.

Some graves have gone

without wreaths each year.

“I think it’s very important

to show support for

military or veterans, private

or past,” Engledow

said. “And to me, this is a

great way of doing it by going

down there and placing

wreaths for those who have

served this country. They

made it good for us to live

in this country. I feel great

about that.”

To donate to the NLF-

PD’s Wreaths Across

America campaign, send

checks made payable to

Wreaths for Veterans to

Station 1, 261 E. Maple St.,

New Lenox, IL, 60451, or

Taft School students cast

ballots in mock election

Students at Taft School

did not sit on the sidelines

Nov. 8; they had an opportunity

to have their voice

heard on election day.

Although the students

in grades K-8 did not have

their votes officially counted,

thanks to a mock election

held at the school they

all got a taste of the voting

process.

Throughout the day, students

took turns casting

their ballots, starting with

the kindergarteners in the

morning and wrapping up

with the eighth-graders in

the afternoon.

Superintendent Pamela

Kibbons brought the idea of

a mock election to the teachers

several months ago, and

they decided it would benefit

all the students at the

school.

“It’s important that they

felt it was meaningful,”

Kibbons said of the district’s

teachers. “It’s important that

we felt we could make a

good curricular connection

to it, and we discussed it and

felt that it would be a good

fit for us at Taft this year.”

The staff at the school was

invited to vote, as well, and

the results were announced

at the end of the school day

Nov. 8. After all was said

and done, 290 votes were

cast, with 133 going to Hillary

Clinton and 130 going

to Donald Trump, 22 going

to Gary Johnson and five for

Jill Stein.

Lincoln-Way Marching Band

completes first season as a

unified group

Changes to the marching

band structure at Lincoln-

Way Community High

School District 210 have not

put a damper on the group’s

success.

After financial issues led

to the closure of Lincoln-

Way North this past year, the

marching bands from North,

LW Central, LW West and

LW East merged into one

group. The resulting marching

band has flourished under

the leadership of Cary Ruklic,

director of bands at West.

In late October, the marching

band placed first in the

Class 6A division and third

overall in the state finals at

the Illinois State University

Invitational Marching

Championships in Normal.

In all, 45 bands from around

the state took part in the

competition.

The marching band also

competed at the Bands of

America Super Regional,

which ran from Nov. 4-5,

and at the Bands of America

Grand National Championships,

which ran from Nov.

9-12, both at the Lucas Oil

Stadium in Indianapolis.

The band’s design team

already had its first meeting

for next year’s season, but

the members will really start

focusing on it in December

and January. This year’s

LWMB performance, titled

“Renew,” aimed to “use

some Renaissance themes

and imagery to reflect what

was going on in the district,”

Ruklic said.

“[Our goal was] to create

something bigger and better

than we had before,” he said.

“We knew we would want to

reflect that.”

Orland Park man allegedly stole car, set fire to two businesses

Bill Jones, Editor

An Orland

Park man allegedly

stole

a car from unincorporated

Lemont Nov.

9 and then set

fires inside Pawlak

Orland Park businesses, according

to a press release

issued Friday, Nov. 11, by

the Orland Park Police Department.

Michael Pawlak, 20,

of 13535 88th Ave., was

charged with two counts of

arson, a Class 2 felony, by

Orland Park police. He additionally

was charged by

the Cook County Sheriff’s

Office with one count each

of burglary and unlawful

possession of a stolen vehicle,

both Class 2 felonies;

as well as criminal trespass,

a Class A misdemeanor.

Orland Park police reportedly

responded at 3:23

a.m. Nov. 9 to the intersection

of 151st Street and

Harlem Avenue to investigate

a vehicle that reportedly

20 minutes prior

struck a guardrail and left

the scene. While trying to

find the vehicle, officers

learned it was stolen that

night from unincorporated

Lemont, according to the

press release.

At 4:02 a.m. Orland Park

police and the Orland Fire

Protection District responded

to a fire alarm at an empty

business located at 9270

W. 159th St., according to

the press release. The fire

extinguisher reportedly had

been activated in the business,

but no one was inside.

At 4:20 a.m., officers

heard an alarm coming

from the vacant business at

9186 W. 159th St., according

to the press release.

Officers also reportedly

observed smoke coming

out of the rear door. Fire

personnel made entry to the

business and discovered

a fire had been set in the

rear bathroom of the business,

police said. No one

was located inside, police

added.

At 04:29 a.m., fire personnel

observed smoke

coming from the rear of

Park Hill Cleaners, 9174

W. 159th St., according to

the press release. Entry was

made, and fire damage was

discovered in the rear bathroom,

along with a large

amount of water on the

floor, police said. No one

was located inside, police

added.

Pawlak was walking

in the parking lot of Park

Hill Plaza, police said. He

reportedly had an active

traffic warrant out of Will

County and was subsequently

taken into custody.

Further investigation into

Pawlak found he committed

a burglary in unincorporated

Lemont and had

stolen the vehicle located

in the Walmart parking lot,

police said. Pawlak reportedly

also was determined

to be the person who set

fire inside the two businesses.

Judge Peter A. Felice set

bond for Pawlak at $60,000

Thursday, Nov. 10, with a

return court date of Dec. 5.

Fashion is a Lifestyle

Going into meltdown mode

Social snapshot

Top Web Stories

From opprairie.com as of Saturday, Nov. 10

Jackie OBoyle

Contributing Columnist

Orland Park resident

So, last week, I gave

you some homework

— move fall/winter to

the front and summer to the

back, unless, of course, you

are lucky enough to have an

extra closet to store offseason

clothes.

Since I had not completed

the full transformation in

my own closet, I figured I

had better follow suit. In the

midst of it all, something

came over me. Why am

I keeping this, why am I

keeping that? I think I had a

meltdown of the fashionable

kind.

So many pieces I had not

worn in a season or two, or

more, or less. And although

these items were still in

style, in good condition

fabric-wise and fit fine upon

a try, something just wasn’t

right.

I was on a mission to

purge.

Go ahead and laugh, but

this caused me major stress.

Upon reflection, I realized

this. I am once again reinventing

myself. At the age

of, well, never mind, I find

my fashion choices changing

and growing.

And why shouldn’t they?

We all find ourselves getting

rid of things that don’t fit

anymore, have been overworn

or are simply “out of

style.”

We need to consider that

we change as individuals.

Our lifestyles change, our

taste changes and our bodies

change. Re-inventing our

wardrobes can generate a

renewed sense of confidence

and swagger.

Sometimes, something as

simple as switching fashion

gears can make all the

difference in how we feel

about ourselves or the situations

we encounter. And

although I loved that creme

cold-shoulder sweater I

have worn a time or two and

still looks good, I’m over

it. And so my pile grew and

grew and grew.

I cut the cord and feel

good about the result. I encourage

you to do the same.

From the Editor

A tale of two districts

BILL JONES

bill@opprairie.com

I

was talking to a woman

I know on Election

Day, when I noticed

she did not have one of the

stickers everyone else was

wearing. As the election

already was the topic of

discussion for just about

everyone, I asked her if

she voted.

Quietly, she told me she

did not. She usually does

not.

I asked her why, because

it’s important to try to

understand why people,

especially those with differing

opinions, feel the

way they do, to try to understand

them, to consider

their opinions.

As it turns out, it is a

conscious choice on her

part. And it is not simply a

“my vote doesn’t matter”

attitude. Rarely, she said,

does she feel overwhelmingly

passionate about any

of the candidates — uncompelled,

as a result, to

head out to the polls to

pick one.

That even extended to an

election in which she knew

there was at least one candidate

she preferred not to

see in office.

I vote. I find it to be

important, even if my chosen

candidate loses, even

if — as everyone loves to

frame it — it is a choice

between “the lesser of two

evils.” We should strive for

the best in most everything

we do, in relation to our

personal values.

If there are two options

of pop, why not pick

the best? If there are two

competing newspapers,

read the one that reports

the news better. If there are

two people running for the

highest office in the country,

maybe making sure to

pick the “lesser evil” isn’t

the worst thing you could

spend 20 minutes doing

that day, even if that choice

sometimes feels like the

equivalent of the belt, stick

or wrench from “Good Will

Hunting.”

But I understand her

sentiment. I sometimes

have a similar feeling —

and had it once again this

year — that the problem

with really getting behind

any candidate is a lack of

feeling truly represented.

It has something to do

with being a true independent.

Rarely do I look at a

candidate’s platform, listen

to his or her speeches,

read the stories, and think,

“Yeah, this person gets

me and will carry out

what I hope to see done

in America.” At best, I try

to find out which one has

more things to which I

can connect than the other

— and still has a viable

chance of winning — and

weigh it against the things

I value most.

But the model of our

democracy — or, more accurately

and appropriately

dubbed, representative

democracy — is that it is

a government run by the

people, first and foremost,

who elect officials

to represent them in the

political arena, because

we have jobs and families

and recreation to which

we must tend. As much

as people love to bash

politics — and, by association,

politicians — it

also does not hurt to have

people who can spend the

kind of time we spend on

these other life tasks learning

how government really

works and applying that

knowledge on our behalf.

But as I sat in our

Orland Park office on

Election Night, waiting for

results from the unofficial

county clerks’ offices in

races directly relevant to

our area, I started to notice

a particular trend. Cook

County results are really

divided into two groups:

those that come from the

office of Cook County

Clerk David Orr for suburban

Cook County, and

those that come from the

Chicago Board of Election

Commissioners. And

the results from those two

areas of a district often can

be vastly different.

For instance, Democratic

incumbent Frances Ann

Hurley drew 80.88 percent

of the vote in the Chicago

portion of her district to

her Republican challenger’s

19.12 percent. And

while in the suburbs she

still won the popular vote,

it came by the much closer

margin of 52.06 percent to

47.94 percent, showing a

noteworthy difference of

margin in two area’s of the

district.

But Chicago accounted

for 24,253 of her total

33,987 votes, meaning

Hurley’s victory still

looked quite definitive

across the board at 65.54

percent. I had hoped to ask

her this past week if she

was at all concerned about

the difference in support

between her Chicago constituents

and the suburban

ones, but I was not able to

connect with her.

Maybe I’ll ask next

time I see her at a Coffee

and Conversation event,

because at least Hurley appears

with some regularity

in Orland Park.

U.S. Rep Bobby Rush,

on the other hand, might

be hard-pressed to point to

the suburb on a map. And

I don’t suppose I’ll get to

ask him about the matter,

as I couldn’t tell you when

he last responded to one

of our candidate questionnaires,

and on Election

Night his representative

told one of our reporters

Rush would get back to

us if “he feels like it” that

night, or the next morning.

As of press time Monday,

Nov. 14, he still has

not returned those calls.

Unsurprisingly, the

disparity in his voting margins

across areas was even

more stark. In Chicago,

the Democratic incumbent

won 167,955 votes to

7,598 (less than 5 percent)

over Republican challenger

and Mokena resident August

(O’Neill) Deuser. The

the Cook County ’burbs,

Rush still won, drawing

47,841 to Deuser’s muchtighter

40,945. But Rush

actually lost Will County,

drawing only 15,737 votes

to Deuser’s 32,296 there.

So while, overall, Rush

dominated the race, there

was a major difference

in the small but densely

populated area that helped

win him re-election and

the geographically wider

but less populated areas

that might have elected

someone else.

And while one cannot

blame Rush for taking

advantage of that structure,

for playing the game as it

was created, for not bothering

to pay much mind

to suburban interests and

suburban press, it all begs

the question of whether or

not these individuals could

possibly be true representatives

of us, or maybe

better if the areas that

are defining “us,” in any

particular place, are appropriately

divided to make

sure people are receiving

their due representation in

the General Assembly and

Congress.

There is no doubt that,

when districts span in long

slivers from the city to the

far reaches of the suburbs,

some gerrymandering has

taken place that often leaves

suburbanites in the lurch.

The numbers prove it.

And it’s not about party.

I’m not saying I would

have voted for the losing

candidate in either of these

races, or that either of the

winners are not the best

equipped to serve, or that

there is an inherent right

or wrong when it comes to

Chicago versus suburban

mentalities. I’m not claiming

Orland Park’s politics

as my own. I simply think

people deserve representation.

I also am not naive

enough to think that we

ever receive true representation

on a personal

level. Unless we all start

participating in popular

votes for every last agenda

item in every level of

government, or unless we

decide to run for office

ourselves, we simply have

to accept that someone else

— sometimes someone

else for whom we did not

vote — with possibly close

yet still differing values,

will speak and act on our

behalf. That is the inherent

conceit of our system, and

we accept it for what it is:

an opportunity to have a

vote, to have a say, without

sacrificing all of our time

to the minutiae of running

a city, state, country.

That said, I can see how

someone in a suburban

district might feel less than

represented by someone

voted into office by what

amounts to a vastly different

Chicago district. I

get why the first reaction

one of our social platforms

received in response to

election results was, “We

are stuck in the Chicago

District BOOOO.” And

I can see why someone

might feel a disconnect

with their representatives.

Pastor Column

Coping with grief

Imam Kifah Mustapha

Prayer Center of Orland Park

In these lines, I will share

my own perception about

coping with grief, as

there is no standard formula

that works for all. Each person

is a unique blend of feelings,

experiences and character,

and because of that, each

one copes with grief in his

own personal way.

I was an Imam at the

Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview

prior to my move to

the Prayer Center of Orland

Park. I used to lead 100-120

funeral services there every

year. I attended the wakes

prior to the burials; I led

prayers during the funeral;

I joined the families at the

cemetery for burial; and

followed up with a visit offering

condolences after the

burial. I tried to offer words

of comfort that I hoped

would help people cope

with their grief.

I thought I would have

been more prepared to cope

with my own grief a few

years ago, when I lost my

mom, but I was not. It hit

me so hard and left me in a

profound state of shock.

I had been staying with my

mother, as she was battling

cancer. Just three days after

I flew back to the U.S. from

Lebanon, she lost that battle.

At first, I was in denial. I

could not believe what I had

been told by my brothers

in Lebanon. I did not feel

that my level of faith had

lessened, but rather that I was

feeling what any normal human

being full of love would

feel for the loss of the one he

loves the most.

I am a believer. I submit to

the will of God. But I had to

be alone to cry and process

things by myself.

My faith eased this wave

of shock, for I knew that

even though I had my mother

for as long as I could remember,

she was not mine. She

belonged to God, and it was

time for her to return to Him.

I coped with my loss in

many different ways. I made

supplications for her. I kept

looking through all her

pictures in our family photo

albums. I asked my sister to

cook my mother’s favorite

food for me. I visited the

people she had liked to visit.

I donated money to local

needy people, and asked

them to make supplications

on her behalf.

I missed her a lot, and I

still do.

Having all the family

around me during the days

of condolences helped me

greatly. All of us shared that

common thread: we all loved

her, and we all missed her.

My grief was and is still a

reminder that I am a human

being, a son and a believer.

To all those who have lost a

mother, a father, a child or

any person dear to them: I

hope and pray that you will

be able to cope with your

grief and that you may find

peace in ways that comfort

you.

“O peaceful soul! Return

to your Lord, well-pleased

and well-pleasing. And so,

enter among My beloved

servants. And enter My Everlasting

Garden” 89:27-30.

My Fair Lady event gives moms a night out

Ryan Esguerra, Freelance Reporter

For Catherine Bonini, what

started as a girls night out away

from the children has transformed

into an annual community event

that draws roughly 200 attendees

each year.

“Myself and four other moms

decided to start a group just for

fun to bring the ladies out,” Bonini

said. “We really just needed

a shopping night.”

Bonini and fellow mothers at

the Family/School Association of

St. Michael School hosted their

fourth annual Saint Mike’s My

‘Fair’ Lady vendor event Thursday,

Nov. 10, at Hackney’s in

Palos Park to celebrate the beginning

of the holiday season.

“Being members of the FSA,

we really wanted an event that

would be different than the normal

ones we usually do,” Bonini

said. “We wanted something for

the parents to come out, too, and

have a fun night away from their

kids.”

This free event featured a variety

of local shopping vendors, as

well as drinks, food and a raffle

for two Blackhawks tickets. Proceeds

from the raffle go to the

Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome Foundation,

a nonprofit organization

committed to servicing children

who suffer from a rare form of

epilepsy.

“At the end of our last year,

we had a bunch of raffle money

we didn’t really know what to do

with,” Bonini said. “So we decided

to pick a new charity each

year to donate it to. This year, we

Bonini said that a big reason

for the success of the event is

the commitment the FSA has to

choosing a variety of unique vendors

that can provide a wide array

of products to shoppers.

“We want a variety of things, so

that when people come they have

options,” Bonini said. “We have

One such vendor was Hilary

Rhodes, of Palos Heights.

Rhodes is a freelance graphic designer

who specializes in creating

unique greetings cards. Located

in her stand at the event were a

variety of printed novelty cards,

displaying quotes such as “Let

there be peace on earth,” and

“This little light of mine. I’m

gonna let it shine.”

“I wanted to do something that

would touch people and be important

in their lives,” Rhodes

said. “I love cards; I love getting

cards. So, I just started making

them, and here we are.”

The event has grown in the

years since it began. Bonini said

that the first year the event had 15

vendors from which to choose.

This year, she said that there were

28 vendors on site.

“Last year, we actually had 35

in this venue, and we felt that it

was too big,” Bonini said. “So,

we had to dial it back a little bit

this year.”

Leslie Moyar, of Orland Park,

Orland Park Public Library to present ‘A Century

of Citizen Action in Health Care Reform’

The Orland Fire Protection District

welcomes seniors to annual luncheon

Submitted by Orland Park Public

Library

Orland Park Public Library is to

host an exhibit called “For All the

People: A Century of Citizen Action

in Health Care Reform,” which is to

be accompanied by a presentation

by Beatrix Hoffman, the exhibition’s

curator.

Hoffman is author of the book

“Health Care for Some: Rights and

Rationing in the United States since

1930,” and a professor of history at

Northern Illinois University.

Health care reform has been a contentious

political issue in the United

States for more than 100 years. From

the beginning of the 20th century

to today, citizens have made their

voices heard in these debates. Even

after the passage of the Affordable

Care Act in 2010 — which expanded

access to health insurance coverage

for millions of people — Americans

continue to disagree on whether and

how to make quality health care

available to all.

Early in the 20th century, rapid

industrialization, new waves of immigration

and growing labor unrest

made the health of workers and the

poor a matter of national concern.

Citizen groups worked with doctors

and nurses to find ways to extend

medical care to more people. Starting

in the 1920s, health care became

more expensive, putting medical

advances beyond the reach of many

Americans. Attempts to establish

a national system of insurance repeatedly

failed, but activist citizens

and health professionals worked to

expand access by creating public

health services, developing new

types of coverage and fighting hospital

discrimination.

Health care reform is usually associated

with presidents and national

leaders, but this exhibit and

presentation tells the lesser-known

story of how movements of ordinary

people helped shape the changing

American health care system. The

six-banner traveling exhibit highlights

images from over 100 years

of citizen action for health care reform.

The participation of grassroots

groups in battles over health care

reform continues in the 21st century.

Activism helped shape the Affordable

Care Act of 2010, which

outlawed most types of insurance

discrimination and extended health

coverage to many of the uninsured.

Citizens’ groups faced off at town

meetings during the battle over

“Obamacare,” and are playing a major

role in the debate over the constitutionality

and implementation of

the law.

New types of citizen action also

have emerged to address new health

care challenges, from illness and

disability among military veterans

to the rising number of elderly in the

United States.

This traveling exhibit is sponsored

by the National Library of

Medicine, on display at the Orland

Park Public Library from Nov. 21-

Dec. 31.

Hoffman will speak about the

history of health care reform in the

United States and the involvement

of citizens and activist groups in

health care debates over the past

century at 7 p.m. Dec. 2.

The Dish

Complex, homemade dishes aplenty at Eggheadz Cafe

James Sanchez, Contributing Editor

A laid-back, leisurely environment

is what one might expect

when walking into a breakfast establishment

on a normal weekday

morning.

There is no such atmosphere at

Eggheadz Cafe.

A Thursday morning at the Tinley

Park restaurant is met with

exuberant chatter from families

and couples at their tables, while

servers bustle about, taking orders

and serving food. The short clink

and rattle of silverware hitting the

plate was constant throughout the

190-seat eatery, which often is near

capacity.

Yet, owner Peter Mastorakos is

not fazed, looking over at the waiting

area at the front of the door to

only see a few patrons waiting to

be seated.

“This is calm for us,” Mastorakos

said. This is like a walk in the

park.”

That’s because on weekends

at Eggheadz, that area is filled, at

times to the point where lines are

out the door, with patrons waiting

to eat from more than 70 different

breakfast options (more than 150

total, including the lunch menu) —

all of which Mastorakos proudly

said are homemade and cooked

with quality ingredients.

With numerous breakfast spots

all over the south suburbs, going

the extra step in making everything

from scratch is his recipe to standing

out against his competition.

And that is not just limited to the

food. It has a juice bar for freshly

squeezed items, including orange,

Fuji apple, pear and cranberry, as

well as mixtures, like its signature

blend of pineapple, banana and

spinach.

“It costs a little extra, but you

could taste the difference,” he said

of his press juicers.

The natural, sweet beverage

plays as a perfect complement to

all of the savory offerings Eggheadz

has, including its signature

steak skillet ($11.59). The heaping

dish comes with 8 ounces of

grilled sirloin steak, shredded hash

browns, mushrooms, onions, green

peppers, and Monterey jack and

cheddar cheese, topped with two

eggs any way.

Mastorakos served it with eggs

sunny-side up for the yolk to run

through every layer of the skillet

concoction to help the cheeses pull

together the ingredients together

for hearty, creamy bites in every

forkful.

Those who prefer a sweeter

breakfast can go for the French

sampler ($9.99), which is French

toast served three different ways.

One third is Eggheadz’s signature

French toast, which is stuffed

with mascarpone and cream

cheese, then topped with cherry

kijafa. The other is red velvet,

covered in fresh, glazed strawberries.

And the last third is banana

nut, topped with bananas

and walnuts.

A dollop of whipped cream is

placed in the middle, and powdered

sugar and cinnamon are

sprinkled all over the plate. It is all

part of Mastorakos’ motto to “eat

with your eyes first, and then with

your mouth.”

“I think if something looks good

on the plate and tastes good, that’s

very important,” Mastorakos said.

“A lot of people don’t pay attention

to how the food is presented to the

customer.”

To accommodate a wider clientele

and customer requests, Eggheadz

added its own gluten-free

menu of waffles, pancakes and

crepes. He said he did his research

in finding the combination of perfect

gluten-free flours. He found a

combination that makes for light

and creamy dishes.

“You have to listen to the customer

of what their needs and

The Eggheadz Signature ($11.59) is a skillet featuring roughly 8 ounces of grilled sirloin steak, mixed with

shredded hash browns, green peppers, onions, a blend of cheeses and topped with two eggs any way. It also

is served with buttermilk pancakes or toast. Photos by James Sanchez/22nd Century Media

wants are,” he said. “You have to

adjust with the times.”

Listening to the customers and

doling out good food is what has

delivered Eggheadz’s lively, busy

atmosphere since opening in 2010.

The restaurant is to hit its six-year

anniversary at the end of the month.

“I truly enjoy this, as hectic as it

gets,” he said. “I still get a rush every

time I come in here.”

A dish not to miss ...

Mastorakos said the Tuscan

chicken panini ($9.59) is one of the

favorites for the lunch crowd. It has

chunks of grilled chicken breast as

a base, and it is layered with pesto,

sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella.

Roasted red pepper mayo

and a pickle is served on the side,

along with your choice of a bowl of

homemade soup or the restaurant’s

famed pasta salad.

For the sweeter palate, the French sampler ($9.99) serves French toast

three different ways: stuffed French toast, topped with cherry kijafa; red

velvet, topped with fresh, glazed strawberries; and banana nut, topped

with bananas and walnuts.

Boys Basketball

Sandburg looking to improve this season

Brittany Kapa, Assistant Editor

The Sandburg boys basketball

team held its tryouts

Nov. 7, and is gearing up for

the start of another season.

The Orland Park Prairie

offers the following breakdown

of what to expect.

Coaching Staff

Todd Allen returns with

21-years of coaching experience,

12 of those at Sandburg.

He is joined by assistant

coach Randy Voels.

Team Overview

Coming off of an 11-16

season this past year and losing

all of their starters, the

Eagles will be faced with

not only a young roster but

also having to make up those

losses. With 17 students on

the roster and only fourth

of those seniors, the underclassman

are going to have

to step up in a big way this

season for the Eagles.

Zak Razik and Sean Mc-

Shane — both All-Conference

athletes — were two

of the more vital losses from

which the team will have to

rebound this season. Scoring,

rebounding and assists

are at the forefront of Allen’s

mind this season.

Chris Toth comes back

this year as a senior, along

with fellow senior teammates

Grant Glover, Jack

Witt and Ed Mila.

“We return Chris Toth,

who toward the end of the

year started playing for us,”

Allen said of the 6-foot-6

senior, who also played football

this season. “He actually

started some games towards

the end of the year. He’s the

only guy we have back this

year that has a lot of experience.”

Jake Pygon returns this

season, after an injury

benched the player for the

second half of the previous

season. His twin brother, Jason,

will also be returning as

part of the junior class lineup.

“We kind of have a situation

this year, because there

was really nobody who was

a starter last year who saw a

lot of minutes,” Allen said.

“There’s a lot of competition

for playing time, which

I think is a good thing.”

Offense

Perhaps the biggest addition

to the Eagles lineup this

season will be St. Rita transfer

Barlow Alleruzzo. The

6-foot-8 junior will be a vital

height boost to the Eagles

roster. Alleruzzo and Toth at

the biggest on the team, and

will be expected to help out

with rebounds this season,

among other tasks.

Mila early on seems like

he will be another addition

to the offensive play of this

team.

“I thought he had a good

summer for us,” Allen said

of Mila’s contribution during

the summer league. “He

started shooting the basketball,

so I know he’s looking

to contribute this year.”

Defense

“We’re not real big, so we

know we have to play physical

and aggressive,” Allen

said.

Defensively, Allen’s strategy

this season will mix of

man-on-man, with zone and

full-court defense.

With no standout shooter,

as of yet, having a strong

defensive strategy will be

crucial to this team’s success

this year. Allen is banking

on the team’s athleticism to

create a quicker pace and

more up-tempo style of play

he hopes will play into the

team’s favor.

Looking ahead

“I really do like our junior

class,” Allen said. “We have

a lot of good athletes and a

lot of guys who are going to

get significant playing time

as juniors.”

Mila said in an interview

that Allen is focusing on

trust this season, and with no

set starters, everyone is on a

level playing field at the start

of the season. Playing time

will be earned this season.

With only four seniors on the

roster, there will be plenty of

it to go around.

“I don’t think we really

have one guy who essential

this year; I feel like this year

is going to involve everybody,”

Mila said. “That’s

something coach emphasized,

as well.”

The team’s first test will

come in the Reavis Invitational,

slated to start Monday,

Nov. 21. They will not

have their first home game

until December.

They are to face their rival

Andrew at 6:30 p.m. Friday,

Dec. 2, giving the Eagles just

less than a month of practice

and game experience to develop

that trust Allen mentioned

in tryouts.

“With the group of guys

we have, we’re going to

have to want the win more

than everyone else, believe

in everyone and trust in the

guys around us,” Mila said.

Wrestling

Patrick Brucki chasing elusive state title in senior season

‘Scrappy’ talent

hoping to emerge

this season for

Sandburg

Dave Owen, Freelance Reporter

With the talent, drive and

smarts of Princeton-bound

Patrick Brucki leading the

way, Sandburg’s wrestling

team is destined to be a

force again this season.

Despite graduation claiming

2016 state champions

Louie Hayes and Rudy

Yates, along with three-time

state medalist Brian Krasowski,

plenty of potential

remains.

“We took a pretty big

hit with our graduating seniors,”

Brucki said. “But we

have a lot of young guys that

are ready to fill a role.

“A lot of times that can be

better than having a talented

known guy, because these

young guys don’t have a lot

of experience, but they’re

ready to learn and super excited

to get on the mat. If

there’s one word to describe

the team this year, it’s scrappiness.”

Brucki comes off a second-place

Class 3A state

finish at 182 pounds this

past year (47-3 record) and

was third as a sophomore.

He looks to close his Illinois

career in style.

“Patrick has only one expectation

for himself this

year, and that’s to be an undefeated

state champion,”

Eagles coach Eric Siebert

said. “He is very wellrounded

in every aspect of

the sport.”

Brucki added, “Obviously,

I have some pretty high

hopes for this year. I just

want to relax, be confident

and be on the offensive.”

Scates (28 wins this past

year) is another returning

2016 state qualifier, and

Cole Bateman (220) reached

state in 2015 as a sophomore.

“Malik came on really

strong at the end of last year

and definitely has the potential

to be a state placer,”

Siebert said. “Cole is talented

and experienced. He

should be in the hunt to win

a state title at 220.”

Another trio of 2016 sectional

qualifiers returns in

sophomore Sam Wojcik

(113), Alex Hirschfield

(170) and Ben Kirby (132).

“Going into his senior

year, Ben looks to build

off of last year’s success,”

Siebert said.

“Sam was a match away

from being a state qualifier

last year and has really improved

through hard work,”

Siebert said.

Sophomore Pat Nolan figures

to make an impact at

126.

“It’s not going to take

long for everyone in the

state to know his name,”

Siebert said. “We expect

him to have a big year.”

Sophomore Miles Trahey

(106) and juniors Colin

Dominski (160) and Tim

Houston (145) are other

key additions to the varsity

lineup.

“Miles is a really talented

wrestler and looks to

emerge,” Siebert said. “Colin

is a very tough kid and is

coming off a great football

season. And Tim is having

a great start to his season in

the practice room.”

Before pursuing his

bright, Ivy League college

future, Brucki wants to end

his great Sandburg career

with a bang.

“I have plenty of friends

wrestling at the Division I

level,” he said. “And they all

say the most enjoyable part

of wrestling is high school,

wrestling in front of your

friends, family and community.

That’s what motivates

me this year.”

Between Brucki’s state

title chase and a talented

young nucleus learning fast,

Sandburg is geared up for an

interesting winter.

“We lost a lot of wins and

hardware to graduation last

year,” Siebert said. “That

said, our attitude and work

ethic has been excellent

thus far.

“We are going to be a

pretty scrappy group, and

I’m not going to be surprised

if this group emerges

pretty quickly.”

At the end of every boys soccer season, 22nd Century Media scours through stories, stat sheets and

reporters’ notebooks to compile its Team 22 All-Star lineup. The team features student-athletes from

Lincoln-Way Central, Lincoln-Way East, Lincoln-Way West, Providence Catholic, Andrew, Tinley Park,

Lockport Township and Sandburg high schools.

Compiled by 22nd Century Media staff

First Team

Second Team

Burns Photography

Forwards

Luke Picard, senior,

Providence

30 goals, 11 assists. All-

Sectional, All-CCL. Picard’s

season stats were unreal,

which explains why he

was named the Chicago

Catholic League White

Division Player of the Year.

Midfielders:

Justin Taylor, senior,

Andrew

10 goals, 8 assists.

All-Sectional, All-SWSC.

Taylor, the Thunderbolts’

senior captain, served

as the top attacker for

school this season, as

well as its points leader.

Defenders

Liam Elsden, senior, LW

East

2 goals, 4 assists. All-

Sectional, All-SWSC Red.

Elsden’s defense helped

make it incredibly hard

for teams to score against

the Griffins this season.

Forward

Scottie Slocum, junior,

Providence

10 goals, 6 assists. As keeper:

15 saves, 1 shutout.

Dan Rohder, senior, Sandburg

6 goals, 5 assists, 13 points.

All-SWSC, All-Sectional.

Brad Podobnik, senior, LW

Central

All-SWSC Red.

Burns Photography

Goalkeeper

Jonathan Jimenez, senior,

Providence

17 goals, 14 assists. With

all of the scoring done by

teammate Luke Picard, one

might think there would be

little left for anyone else.

Jimenez proved there were

plenty of opportunities.

Brett Hudak, sophomore,

Tinley

14 goals. All-Sectional,

All-SSC. While the No. 4

Titans could not get out

of their regional semifinal,

Hudak proved a bright

enough star to earn All-

Sectional recognition.

Dominic Wistocki, junior,

Lockport

.58 GAA, 7 shutouts.

All-Sectional. All SWSC-

Blue. Despite the Porters’

early fall by 1 goal in their

regional semifinal, Wistocki

was very difficult to score

against this season.

Matt Kulpinski, senior,

Andrew

9 goals, 7 assists. All-

Sectional. All-SWSC Red.

Another senior captain for

the T-Bolts also earned

the honor of being named

his squad’s MVP for the

season.

Kyle Seymour, junior, LW

West

9 goals, 4 assists. All-

Tournament. The Warriors

drew the No. 12 seed

and fell to Thornton in

the regional semifinal,

but Seymour proved a

standout all season.

Marty Manzke, senior,

Sandburg

4 goals, 6 assists, 12

points, 1 steal. All-

Sectional. All-SWSC Blue.

The trick to Manzke’s

midfield skills was playing

all around, as a goal threat

and solid defender.

Ainis Lapinskas, senior,

Lockport

2 goals, 1 assist. All-

Sectional. All-SWSC Blue.

The heart of the Porters’

defense, Lapinskas just

may have been the most

influential player on the

team this year.

Ryan Frencl, senior,

Sandburg

2 assists, 2 points. All-

SWSC. The Eagles’ season

was stopped early this

year in the regional final,

but Frencl impressed on

defense and scored a few

along the way.

Honorable Mentions:

F: Frank Dicosola, junior, LW East; Karl Kosary Jr.,

junior, Andrew; Jay Bumstead, junior, LW West.

M: Jack McAllister, junior, Providence; Jack

Land, junior, Providence; Drake Silver, senior,

Lockport; Kyle Seymour, junior, LW West.

D: Sawyer Hobbs, senior, LW Central.

G: Victor Porada, sophomore, LW East.

Midfielder

Cam Cutler, junior, Providence

8 goals, 5 assists.

West

Red.

Eagles’ Bella Wrobel wins

500 freestyle event

Steve Millar, Freelance Reporter

It was a dream day for Lockport’s

girls swimming team Saturday, Nov.

12, at the Sandburg Sectional.

The Porters swept all three relays,

won three individual events

and rolled to the team title with

303 points, well ahead of runner-up

Sandburg, which scored 269.

“We had a fantastic day,” Lockport

coach Grant Ferkaluk said. “I’m

so proud of the girls. We had great

senior leadership on the relays, and

the girls really wanted those. We got

some individuals through to state,

and we’re really excited to see what

we can do there.”

The state meet will be held Friday,

Nov. 18, and Saturday, Nov. 19, at

Evanston High School.

Lockport freshman Lindsey Merk

made her first sectional a memorable

one, winning the 100-yard butterfly

and 100 backstroke, as well as swimming

on the Porters’ winning teams

in the 200 medley relay and the 400

freestyle relay.

“I did so much better than I expected,”

Merk said. “The whole day

was crazy. I’ve never experienced

anything like it, with the crowd and

the atmosphere. For the team to do

as well as we did, and for me to win

two events, it’s amazing. I couldn’t

have asked for anything more.”

Merk broke school and pool records

with a time of 55.52 seconds

in the 100 fly.

“I went way faster than I thought

I would in that event,” Merk said. “I

had no idea I had broken the records.

It’s exciting. I was able to carry that

“I wasn’t expecting

to win, but I was

just expecting to

make the most of my

opportunity.”

Bella Wrobel — Sandburg

swimmer, on winning the 500-

yard freestyle at the Eagles’

sectional

energy into the 100 backstroke, and

that helped me a lot.”

Merk won that event with a time

of 56.83.

“Lindsey is fantastic,” Ferkaluk

said. “She’s had some great times already,

and she’s not done. She’s not

rested yet. I’m excited to see what

she can do at state.”

Sophomore Oliwia Wolek — in

her first year at Lockport after moving

from Poland, also qualified for

state in two individual events — and

two relays.

Wolek finished second in the 100

fly (57.84) and 200 individual medley

(2:08.85), posting state-qualifying

times in both.

“I was really nervous,” Wolek

said. “Now, I’m really excited. My

teammates help me a lot, and they

believe in me.”

Lockport’s Emily Johnson won

the 200 free (1:55.16).

Merk, Wolek, Brittney O’Neill

and Lauren Estes swam, as the Porters

captured the titles in the 200

medley relay (1:48.75).

In the 200 free relay, it was Johnson,

O’Neill, Estes and Makayla

Pictured are members of the Sandburg girls swimming team who

Kraus bringing home the win in

1:38.47.

The Porters completed the sweep

in the 400 free relay (3:35.67) behind

Merk, Wolek, Johnson and Estes.

Sandburg junior Bella Wrobel

won the 500 free (5:15.19).

“I wasn’t expecting to win, but I

was just expecting to make the most

of my opportunity,” she said. “My

freshman year, I didn’t really think

I’d ever be able to make it to state in

an individual event, but I started to

realize I had a chance, and I wanted

to take advantage of it.”

Wrobel shaved more than 7 seconds

off her seed time of 5:22.91.

“I was really happy with my time,”

she said. “I wanted to get it down in

this race, and I’m excited I was able

to do it.”

Senior Marilyn Sedlak also qualified

for state for the Eagles, finishing

third in diving with 383.9 points.

Sandburg’s Rachael Apter posted

state-qualifying times in the athletes

with disabilities division in the 50

free (32.58), 100 free (1:13.66), 200

free (2:38.68) and 100 breaststroke

(1:38.77).

Andrew senior Emma Ruchala

won diving with 493.7 points.

Ruchala finished fourth in the state

in the event this past year.

“Emma did great,” Andrew coach

Frank Muchna said. “She’s finished

in the Top 6 in the state the last three

years, and if she goes to state and

has a big performance, she can win

it. That’s what we’re pulling for.”

The Thunderbolts finished fourth

as a team, with 182 points.

“It was a good day for us,” Muchna

said. “Most of the girls put up

their best times. We’re a young team.

I can’t complain.”

Providence had two individuals

compete. Allison Gardella finished

14th in the 100 breaststroke and 15th

in the 50 free, while Alyssa LaBine

took 14th in the 50 free and 17th in

the 100 breaststroke.
