Dana Decker had never

run in a race until Saturday.

Training for the Chicago

Marathon, which takes place

in October, she saw a great

training opportunity in the

Lincoln-Way High School

District 210 Foundation’s

Half Marathon, which took

place on Saturday morning.

“I thought it was a great

experience,” Decker, a Tinley

Park resident, said. “It

was really nice to go off on a

different path.”

More than 150 runners

gathered at Breidert Green in

Frankfort to participate in the

Lincoln-Way Foundation’s

first-ever half marathon. The

chip-timed half marathon

started and ended at Breidert

Green in downtown Frankfort.

The route snaked west

on Old Plank Trail then into

Hickory Creek Forest Preserve

and turned around at

the Hickory Creek Barrens.

Melissa Williams approaches the finish line to win the

women's division. The event supported the Lincoln-Way

Foundation's education initiatives.

The race was previously

known as the Frankfort Half

Marathon and was recently

handed over to the foundation

in order to benefit a nonprofit,

said Stacie McGlone,

chairperson of the event for

the Lincoln-Way Foundation.

“Basically, we want to let

the community know about

us and create funds that go toward

our mission,” she said.

The foundation plans to

continue the half marathon

event going forward and intends

on making improvements

next year.

“We just wanted it to be a

successful event,” McGlone

said. “Being our first time

doing the event, we certainly

learned a lot.”

All proceeds from the event

will go toward the foundation’s

mission to “creatively

generate financial support

Summit Hill D161 Board of Education

School Board welcomes, swears in two new members

Meredith Dobes

Freelance Reporter

At its first regular meeting

April 26 following the

tallying of official results

from the April 4 Consolidated

Election, the Summit

Hill District 161 Board of

Education welcomed new

members Joy Murphy and

Jim Martin and welcomed

back Board President Rich

Marron and Board Secretary

David Faber, who were

re-elected.

Murphy and Martin filled

the seats of former members

Pam Kohlbacher, who

did not seek re-election, and

Rich Ward, who lost as a

write-in.

With all members present,

following the administration

of the oath of office,

the School Board unanimously

voted to reinstall

Marron as president, Stacey

Borgens as vice president

and Faber as secretary, and

readopted its board policies.

Under old business, the

board unanimously approved

the 2017-2018

technology budget and the

2017-2018 operations and

maintenance budget, which

were separated from the

general fiscal year 2018

budget because projects associated

with the budgets

needed to be planned prior

to the summer, Marron said.

The technology budget

includes the installation of

Wi-Fi, as well as the preparation

of tablet carts for the

2017-2018 school year. The

operations and maintenance

budget includes the replacement

of two classroom windows

at Arbury Hills School,

the installation of tile floor at

Indian Trail School and repairs

for the rear parking lot

at Hilda Walker School.

The School Board voted

4-1-2 in favor of adopting

an amended budget for fiscal

year 2017, with Borgens

voting “no,” and Murphy

and Martin abstaining. The

amended budget reflected an

Round it up

A brief recap of action and discussion from the April 26

meeting of the Summit Hill School District 161 Board of

Education

· Board members Joy Murphy and Jim Martin abstained

from the consent agenda vote, while the rest of the board

voted “yes,” as they said they had questions regarding the

Treasurer’s Report and bills payable.

· A new board member orientation is scheduled for May 8 as

an open meeting.

· The board unanimously approved the 2017-2018 parent/

student handbook, as well as the purchase and installation

of internal cameras at Summit Hill Junior High School for

$6,375.

· Members approved a $27,250 audit services renewal with

Mack & Associates.

amended amount of approximately

$860,000 the district

received from the State of Illinois,

Marron said.

Borgens said she voted

against the amended budget

because she does not like the

practice of amending budgets

and did not see a reason to

amend the FY 2017 budget

because the School Board did

not legally have to do so. Murphy

and Martin said they abstained

because they did not

know enough about the budget

to feel comfortable voting

on it.

The School Board postponed

voting on the appointment

of members to

serve on committees, as

Marron said he wanted to

allow members time to

consider which committees

they would like to serve on.

However, he did appoint

himself as the Lincoln-Way

Area Special Education

District 843 representative

and Faber as the alternate,

as those appointments were

time-sensitive.

Curriculum update

Arbury Hills Principal

John Snipes, who will become

director of curriculum

at the beginning of next

school year, provided the

School Board with an update

on the district’s progress

toward a comprehensive

grading scale.

He said that after meetings

with staff and parents, the

district is going to move to a

system where a student’s total

grade is composed of 75

percent summative exams,

which the student takes following

learning information,

and 25 percent formative exams,

which the student takes

as practice while learning a

subject.

Snipes said some parents

have voiced concerns about

consistency with grading,

so the district will continue

to have separate English

language arts and math

committees to work toward

aligning curriculum and ensuring

grading is consistent

with teachers from kindergarten

through eighth grade.

He added that educator

and speaker Rick Wormeli

will visit the district at 6

p.m. May 22 at Hilda Walker

School during Parent

Night, will address the Assessment

and Grading Team

May 23 and will return in

March 2018 to address all

staff at a half-day in-service.

Wormeli will focus

on curriculum and grading

consistencies, Snipes said.

Superintendent Barb

Rains said that this will

be a multiyear process,

and the district’s main focus

is getting consistency

in place.

“That will help us determine

where to head with

teachers and parents,” she

said. “We still have a long

way to go.”

Frankfort 157-C welcomes new board members

Frankfort Village Board

Road repair, wastewater project

top spending priorities this year

Kirsten Onsgard, Editor

The Village has set aside

nearly $1 million for street

repairs in its budget that

takes effect this month.

The fiscal year 2017-

2018 budget, approved at

the Village Board’s April

24 regular meeting, otherwise

maintains much of the

same spending as the previous

year — including millions

for the Wastewater

Treatment Plant consolidation

project — in addition to

regular services.

The half million dollar

increase in street repairs is

in response to growth that

occurred in Frankfort years

ago when several new streets

were built, according to

Trustee Cindy Heath, chair

of the finance committee.

“We’re at a point in this

Village where, we had a lot of

subdivisions built at the same

time several years ago, and

those roads are all now coming

in this situation where

we have to look at them and

we have to start maintaining

them,” Heath said.

About half of that funding –

$400,000 — comes from taxes

on gasoline and fuel sales,

and the other $550,000 is

from the capital development

fund, which is the result of

savings from previous years.

Heath said the Village is

forecasting about a $1.5 million

surplus from the 2016-

2017 fiscal year, which will

be put toward capital projects.

“That is the result of our

very conservative spending

and planning and management

of funds within this

Village,” Heath said.

The Village will continue

to pay for its share of the

St. Francis Road and bridge

project, expected to total

Round it up

A brief recap of action and discussion from the Monday, April

24, meeting of the Frankfort Village Board

• Mayor Jim Holland presented outgoing Trustee R.

Douglas Walker a plaque after serving on the Village Board

for 16 years. Holland said he especially appreciated the

thoughtfulness Walker brought to issues and his ability to

“cut through to the meat of the matter.” Walker was beaten

in the April 4 election by incoming trustee John Clavio.

• Village Attorney George Mahoney was named to the 2017

Class of Laureates by the Illinois State Bar Association’s

Academy of Illinois Lawyers. Trustee Cindy Heath said the

Village was “lucky to have someone of his caliber.”

• Because regulating donation boxes could violate First

Amendment rights, the Village changed its policy by

discarding its old ordinance and implementing a new one.

The Village of Crest Hill was recently sued after it banned

donation boxes, with a federal court determining that the ban

infringes on free speech. In response, the Village set new

standards to regulate them. Prior to the change, residents

could not place recycling collection boxes on any privately

owned property.

about a half million dollars,

as well as engineering costs

for Sauk Trail, Harlem Avenue

and the signal at La-

Grange and Steger roads.

Continued work on the

$60 million Wastewater

Treatment Plant consolidation

program is expected to

cost $18 million this year,

nearly all of which will be

financed by a loan from the

Illinois Environmental Protection

Agency. The project

will be repaid over time

through sewer rate increases.

The Village also expects to

earn money from utilities this

year. The excess will be put

toward the Wastewater Treatment

Plant project’s loan

payments and other projects,

according to the Village.

Still, Heath said the Village

will need to consider

how it will continue to meet

future expenses — such as

increases in police pension

and road maintenance costs

— which will be topics of

discussion going forward.

“There is some concern

that managing the way we

have cannot sustain the ever-increasing

capital needs

of this community,” Heath

said. “We have projects like

drinking water quality, new

walking trails, sidewalks

… snow plows, police cars,

economic development.”

She said the board is exploring

other revenue options

as future projects come up.

“[The Village is] looking

at what we can do to sustain

that long-term capital need

— if there are any revenue

sources we can look at, or

what we can do to plan — so

we can continue to supply the

residents of Frankfort with

the type of services they need

and expect from us, while

still managing ourselves in a

way that is respectful of their

money, too,” she said.

In total, the Village anticipates

spending about $49

million in the next fiscal year

with a total operating surplus

of about $1.8 million when

accounting for both government

and utilities.

Terminix truck driver used

heroin before crash, police say

Kirsten Onsgard, Editor

A man was allegedly under

the influence of heroin when

he crashed a Terminix truck

through two storefronts in

Frankfort Square last week,

according to the Will County

Sheriff’s Office.

Frankfort Fire Protection

District officials administered

Narcan to 21-yearold

Stephen Dietrich when

they responded to the April

20 crash, according to Will

County Sheriff’s Office

spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer.

Narcan is an antagonist

that reverses the effects

of heroin and other opioids.

Dietrich allegedly used

heroin before backing out

of a private driveway on the

east side of Harlem Avenue

at about 10 a.m. April 20. His

company vehicle moved in

reverse across the four-lane

road, over a grassy embankment

and into two parked

cars before crashing through

the front of Heatwaves Tanning

and ABC Bartending

School. Both businesses are

in a strip mall in the 7200

block of West Benton Drive.

That morning, Heatwaves

Tanning owner Shearin Jurus

was standing behind the

counter of her salon when

she said she saw a flash of

white — Dietrich’s Terminix

truck crashing into her Ford

Expedition, pushing into a

Ford Explorer before breaking

through her storefront.

She said she was surprised

that no one was injured

other than Dietrich,

who was transported by the

Frankfort Fire Protection

District to St. James Olympia

Field Hospital.

“No one was harmed —

people had just left, people

had just come in, people had

just parked to open their business

for the day,” Jurus said.

Frankfort dentist to offer free cleanings, fillings

Dentistry From The

Heart will take place

from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

Saturday, May 6

James Sanchez

Contributing Editor

For the past handful of

years, there’s always a day

in May when Atrium Family

Dental in New Lenox is at

its busiest. Lines are out the

door and each of the patient

rooms are occupied throughout

the day.

The hustle and bustle is

something Atrium’s operations

manager Sara Sudman

and her husband, Shane, a

dentist, embrace, despite

their business not making a

single penny from the day’s

work.

Atrium annually hosts a

day of free cleanings, fillings

and extractions as part

of Dentistry From The Heart

– a nonprofit worldwide organization

whose initiative

is to provide free dental care

for those in need. This year’s

event is to take place from 9

a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, May

6, at their office located on

1938 E. Lincoln Highway in

New Lenox.

“It’s something that I

look forward to every year,”

Shane said, who lives in

Frankfort with his wife. “I

enjoy doing what I do, so

going out and doing a mission

trip to Honduras [back

in March] and doing charity

events, it’s something I’ve

always wanted to do.”

Patients will be served on

a first-come, first-served basis.

Everybody gets a cleaning,

and after, they could

get one filling or extraction.

Those seeking additional

fillings or extractions could

be accommodated, but they

would have to wait back in

line so dentists could serve

all visitors. However, multiple

teeth could be worked

Frankfort resident Dr. Shane Sudman of Atrium Family Dental works on Julie Rice during 2016’s Dentistry From The Heart event. 22nd Century Media File Photo

on in one session if they’re

next to each other since the

novocaine would already be

numbing that area.

Sara recalled one year

when a woman asked for all

eight of her remaining teeth

to be pulled. All of them were

unsalvageable, as they were

either broken or rotted. They

were all in different areas,

too, so she went back in line

multiple times.

“I could not believe it,”

Sara said. “She walked in

with eight teeth and left with

none. She was on a mission

to get them all pulled because

she knew she needed

dentures. I could understand

because if you don’t have the

money to go to the dentist,

and the alternative is to just

to get it all pulled to make it

cheaper in the long run for

her, then just pull it.”

Sara said the woman’s other

teeth were pulled at other

Dentistry From The Heart

events, adding that families

rely on the organization as

their sole dental provider.

Sara has dealt with hundreds

of people since starting the

program – some from Indiana

and Michigan. In the

past, she has seen lines forming

outside the office as early

as 6 a.m.

The planning for the event

starts a year in advance. Sara

and Shane have to solidify a

date to Dentistry From The

Heart early so it is posted

on its site. Six months later

is when they ask vendors to

donate toothbrushes, toothpaste,

floss, material for fillings

and novocaine.

To help alleviate the workload,

Shane brings on an additional

dentist, and now a

third dentist, who Shane met

on the mission trip, will also

contribute. In addition, there

will be extra hygienists and

30 volunteers.

Shane said the most rewarding

part is the response

he receives after he’s done

with the patients, especially

children who have a positive

experience after initially

being afraid to go. He said

people often overlook how

a clean mouth can better a

person’s physical and mental

health.

“There are constant research

studies that show

that having an unhealthy

mouth can cause several systemic

diseases,” Shane said.

“Whether if it’s a stroke,

diabetes, pancreatic cancer,

there’s just so many things

that are linked to that.

“People who don’t have

teeth or have dentures can

have digestive problems because

they can’t chew up

their food properly.”

As busy as May 6 might

be, it might feel easier after

what they experienced

earlier this spring in Honduras,

when they provided

care for hundreds of people

with seemingly worse oral

issues in a makeshift clinic.

Now, Shane and Sara will be

in the comfort of their own

office with their own equipment,

but the goal remains

the same.

“Some of the people that

we see on this day are similar

to the patients we saw in

Honduras,” Sara said. “The

interesting part is whether

we’re in a third-world country

or a country where there

shouldn’t be any poverty,

there are still people lacking

dental care and need help.”

with which to enrich and enhance

the opportunities and educational

experiences of Lincoln-Way High

School District 210 students,” according

to the foundation’s website.

Lincoln-Way Foundation president

Dave Zang said that the foundation

has given more than $4 million

to the district in 20 years.

“We provide a lot of technology

in classrooms,” he said. “What we

do benefits all students in Lincoln-

Way. When we make a donation, we

try to make sure it touches all of the

kids we can.”

Supporting the foundation was

the main purpose of participating

for some runners. Mokena resident

Maggie Palermini graduated from

Lincoln-Way East in 2011 and was

glad to support the school district.

“I did this one for the cause, not

so much for the time,” she said. “It

was a lot more challenging than I

thought it would be, but I also like

a new challenge.”

The second marathon she participated

in during April, Palermini

added that she appreciated that this

one was close to home.

Runners approach the end of the course on Old Plank Road Trail. Laurie Fanelli/22nd Century Media

For others, the event served as a

kick-off and training opportunity to

their race season. Frankfort resident

Bill Gray said that he was participating

in an effort to get ready for

another race in May.

Racing in six to seven races a

year, he said that he appreciated the

close parking, water stops and all of

the volunteers.

McGlone said that the event was

benefitted by having many volunteers

who helped organize and run

various aspects of the race.

“I’d like to say thank you to all

of the sponsors and volunteers and

their involvement. We couldn’t have

done it without them,” she said.

crash

From Page 5

After he was discharged, Dietrich

was arrested and charged

with driving under the influence

of drugs, improper backing up,

operating a motor vehicle without

a safety certificate and possession

of a controlled substance. Dietrich

allegedly was carrying 2 grams of

heroin and syringes, Hoffmeyer

said.

Bond was set at $30,000, which

he failed to post. He awaits trial

May 11.

As a result of the crash, five businesses

in the strip mall temporarily

shut down pending building

inspections. The Terminix truck

also spilled a diluted pesticide

substance, according to Frankfort

Fire Battalion Chief Paul Kinsella,

which the company cleaned.

Heatwaves Tanning was closed

for five days before reopening

Tuesday, April 24, Jurus said.

Because her storefront and door

is boarded up, she is closing at 7

p.m., instead of 10 p.m. This time

of year is especially busy for tanning

because of summer vacations

and prom, she said.

“This is our prime — this is

our prime time,” Jurus said. “This

was prom [season] right as this

was happening. I’m very certain

through that five days of being

closed that [customers] had to go

somewhere else.”

Ninety-six people died from

heroin, fentanyl and other opioidrelated

overdoses in 2016 in Will

County. Jurus said this incident

was the first time she was personally

affected by the epidemic.

Kinsella could not discuss the

use of Narcan, but said the Frankfort

Fire Protection District followed

protocol.

“It’s harming not just the person

— they’re putting themselves in

harm’s way of everybody, especially

in this instance,” Jurus said. “I

was in total shock to find out that’s

what he was doing that day.”

Terminix did not immediately

respond to a request for comment.

ABC Bartending School and Heatwaves Tanning were boarded up after a Terminix truck crashed into the

storefronts April 20. Shearin Jurus, 12-year owner of Heatwaves Tanning, said her salon was closed for five

days after the crash. Her truck was also totaled. Kirsten Onsgard/22nd Century Media

Students have a ball for a cause during annual tournament

Jason Maholy

Freelance Reporter

The players went by

names including Elf and

Alaskan Ice, on teams

dubbed Not in the Face, The

Dodgefathers and Sacara

la Basura – the latter being

Spanish for “Take Out the

Trash.”

Some wore homemade

“uniforms” bearing their

team names the front and

made-up names on the

back; while others were

clad in the jerseys of Derrick

Rose, LeBron James

and the Flint Tropics’ Clarence

“Coffee Black” Withers.

Some went completely

outside the box and donned

what can best be described

as costumes: Superman and

his red cape; an outlaw’s

bandana teamed with women’s

patterned boxer shorts

worn over leggings; the rare

combination of an armless

Captain America T-shirt and

a necktie.

Lincoln-Way East students

put a whole lot of creativity

into the third annual

Lincoln-Way East Aaron

Toppen Memorial Dodgeball

Tournament, which

appeared to be as much a

venue for personal expression

as it was for bragging

rights as greatest dodgeball

team in school.

In the end, the Wet Bandits

topped Free O.J. for the

championship.

East English teacher

and Student Council sponsor

Laura Render said the

whole production is simply

about having fun, and raising

a few hundred dollars

for charity.

“I just really think they

have a great time,” Render

said. “It was really

fun to watch them enjoy

themselves in kind of a

wholesome-fun sort of way

at school, which is always

nice to see. It gives them

an outlet to play something,

especially if they’re not in a

sport right now.”

The idea of a dodgeball

tournament was proposed

three years ago by students

who thought it would be fun

thing to do, and the Student

Council turned it into a fundraiser,

Render explained.

Proceeds from the $10 per

student entry fee went to

Puppies Behind Bars, which

trains prison inmates to

raise service dogs that assist

wounded veterans, and

detect explosives for law

enforcement.

Puppies Behind Bars

was chosen as the beneficiary

by the family of late

Army Pvt. Aaron Toppen,

a former Mokena resident

and East graduate who was

killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan

in June 2014. A

former East Student Council

sponsor taught Toppen,

and wanted to pay tribute

to his memory by using the

tournament as a fundraiser

Standout Student

Sponsored by Marquette Bank

Nicky Piunti, Lincoln-

Way East senior

Nicky Piunti was chosen as this

week’s Standout Student for his

academic excellence.

What is one essential you

must have when studying

and why?

I need my notebooks. It’s

easiest to study when I’m

reading my own writing

rather than a textbook.

What do you like to do when

not in school or studying?

I like to play video games,

swim and spend time with

friends. I also participate in

clubs at school.

What is your dream job and

why?

I don’t know. I wanted

to be a teacher when I was

younger, but I don’t like

Common Core, so I’m exploring

other options.

What is one thing people

don’t know about you?

I help my brother run a

public “Minecraft” server.

We’re building a community

together.

Whom do you look up to and

why?

I look up to my parents because

they’ve supported me

and helped me become who

I am today.

Who is your favorite teacher

and why?

It’s hard to choose! I’ve

had so many great teachers.

What is your favorite class

and why?

Photo submitted

I love my AP Physics

class. I enjoy the lab assignments

because we use math

(which I feel is my strongest

subject) and apply it to real

situations.

What is one thing that

stands out about your

school?

Our school has a great

community. Student are

mostly friendly and helpful,

and the teachers like their

students.

If you could change one thing

about your school, what

would it be?

If school started a little bit

later, that would be great.

I’m always tired in the

mornings.

What is your favorite thing

to eat in the cafeteria?

I usually pack a lunch, but

the fries at school are some

of the best I’ve had. No wonder

they’re so popular.

What is your best memory

from school?

I remember when I was

inducted into National Honor

Society. I felt so proud of

myself that day.

schools.

dodgeball

From Page 11

proximately $1,500 in three

years, according to Render.

The rules were simple:

players are eliminated from

play by either being struck

by a ball, or throwing a ball

that is caught by an opponent.

A player who catches

a ball, and whose team has

three or fewer members still

in the game, gets to reactivate

a teammate that had

been eliminated.

Each of the 12 teams that

competes consisted of at

least eight players, and every

squad had to choose a

name and “uniform” – although

the rules pertaining

to the latter are loose, if

not altogether nonexistent.

Several players wore T-

shirts on which their team’s

and individual names

were scribbled in black

marker.

“They’re quite creative

and amusing – they amuse

themselves, I think,” Render

said. “How creative

they get is entirely up to

them. This is really just a

way for them to have good

old-fashioned fun.”

Some teams consisted

entirely of members of one

graduating class, while others

were mixed. All but two

squads were composed of

all boys – one was represented

by both genders and

the other, the Student Athletes,

was all girls.

“We were actually joking

about [signing up] at

first and then we decided

we should actually do it,

and we scraped together

everybody else we could

find who would actually

do it with us,” said Student

Athlete member Abby Aguirre.

Aguirre, a sophomore,

joked she was a dodgeball

veteran because of her

past experience playing the

game during the school’s

Homecoming Olympics.

She and several of her teammates

acknowledged it was

intimidating playing dodgeball

against squads composed

entirely of boys.

“We didn’t expect it to

be like this, but it is kind

of fun, too,” Aguirre said

regarding being the lone allgirls

team. It doesn’t hurt

when you get hit, it’s more

like you’re sad you got hit,

kind of a depressing feeling.”

“Nobody hit me with the

ball, which was nice, because

it was kind of scary,”

added Student Athlete member

Sam Youngren. “But it

was fun, I had a lot of fun.”

Jalen Hacha, a freshman

who couldn’t recall the last

time he played dodgeball,

played for Juan’s Crew. The

team was named after his

brother, who recruited his

friends to play.

“It was fun,” Hacha said

after his team’s first-round

contest. “It’s interesting

playing against people you

usually wouldn’t talk to, but

it’s good to play with those

other people and have fun.”

everyone to join her fitness demo Saturday, April 29, during

Center. Laurie Fanelli/22nd Century Media

Fashion, fitness and fun

combine at 22nd Century

Media’s women’s expo

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

On Saturday, April 29,

south suburban women converged

on the Tinley Park

Convention Center for Lady

– A Women’s Expo.

The event — now in its

fourth year — featured 79

vendors specializing in everything

from fitness to aromatherapy

to travel tips.

“We want to provide an

easy girls day out,” said

Heather Warthen, chief

events officer at 22nd Century

Media. “Women can get

up early and come out and

have some fun. We’ve got

some great shopping opportunities,

some health screenings.

It’s fun and free.”

Local women seemed eager

for the start of the expo,

as hundreds lined up throughout

the halls of the convention

center before the doors

opened at 9 a.m. sharp. Park

Forest resident Carol Clark

said she thought it sounded

like an interesting event —

and a good time — so she

recruited her friend Betty

Rodgers, of Homewood, to

join her.

“I hope I see something to

purchase and maybe I would

like to participate in some of

the on-site classes that they’re

having,” Rodgers said.

One such event featured

“The Biggest Loser” winner

Danni Allen leading a

20-minute exercise class

with experts from Planet

Fitness, who were on hand

throughout the expo to offer

exercise tips and techniques

to attendees. Natural Healing

Centers also led sessions

on natural and holistic solutions

to encourage healing

on all levels.

Science-based workouts

are at the heart of Orangetheory

Fitness, which was on

hand at the expo. Katie Krop,

assistant manager of the

Frankfort location, explained

that each one-hour total body

workout combines endurance

and strength training to target

five different heart rate zones.

“The goal is to spend at

least 12 or more minutes in

our orange zone,” she said,

adding that people who

spend 12 minutes at that target

heart rate may continue

Zralka to study

woodpeckers

Kimberly Zralka, of

Frankfort, will pursue an

intensive research project

next summer on woodpeckers

through Olivet Nazarene

University.

Zralka’s research project

is “The effects of imperiled

bur and black oak savanna

habitat on red-headed woodpecker

(Melanerpes erythrocephalus

L.) population density

and nest success” in the

Department of Biological

Sciences with Derek Rosenberger,

zoology professor, as

Zralka’s mentor.

The project was awarded

to the junior zoology student’s

Lincoln-Way student designs Fall Fest poster

Submitted by Lincoln-Way Community High

School District 210

On April 21, sophomore McKenzie Dickerson

was named as the winning artist for

the 2017 Frankfort Fall Fest Poster Contest.

Frankfort Chamber of Commerce President

Steve Hogan and Fall Fest Chair Lisa Ricchio

arrived at Lincoln-Way West to surprise

Dickerson among her peers during her seventh

hour art class.

For the contest, students were tasked to

create an original artwork reflecting this

year’s theme: “Frankfort & Co. A business

community that is Elegant. Unique. Classic.”

“We are very proud of McKenzie winning

the Frankfort Fall Fest Poster Contest,”

said Lincoln-Way art department

chair, Phil Labriola, in a statement. “She

is a hardworking and talented student, and

is very deserving of the recognition. McKenzie

did a great job of creating a poster

design that captures this year’s theme of

classic elegance within the business community

of Frankfort.”

Dickerson used Adobe Photoshop to create

the poster, which depicts two people dancing

beside the Frankfort Grainery building.

Dickerson said she was taken aback when

the chamber took notice of her design and

asked for slight tweaks.

“I was surprised,” she said in a statement.

“I thought, ‘Wait, this has a shot?’ I’m still

shocked.”

Dickerson’s design depicts two people

dancing beside the Frankfort Grainery

building.

Dickerson’s art will be used in Frankfort

Fall Festival advertising and merchandising,

including the cover of the 2017 Frankfort

Fall Festival Guide and the Frankfort Fall

Festival website. The Frankfort Fall Fest

takes place in September.

FROM THE ORLAND PARK PRAIRIE

Bridge Teen Center takes part in

Global Youth Service Day

Priscilla Steinmetz stood before

the more than 100 youths gathered

in the main room at The Bridge

Teen Center in Orland Park and put

out a call for volunteers who have

specific skills sets.

She needed clean freaks for one

set of tasks, good communicators

with long arms to comprise the

“ladder crew,” and agile youths

who are “controlled and very aware

of their surroundings” to function

as “runners” who would buzz between

various work stations. And

she wanted leaders to help keep everything

organized and running at

the optimum level.

The youths did, after all, have

some 200 garbage bags containing

thousands of pounds of clothes

through which to sort in only three

hours.

With each request by Steinmetz,

small groups of teens weaved their

way through the mass of bodies

and joined their peers with similar

abilities. Twenty minutes later,

The Bridge was a bustling hive, in

which the youths made their way

through the garments and linens

that will be sold at the nonprofit

organization’s adjacent thrift store.

The teens were at The Bridge

the morning of April 22 for Global

Youth Service Day, which Bridge

program associate Amanda Speakman

defined as “the longest-running,

largest youth-led service event

more than 100 countries were, during

the weekend of April 21-23,

reportedly engaged in community

service projects, service learning

and youth voice activities, all with

the purpose of giving back to their

respective communities.

The proceeds from the eventual

sales of the clothes the youths sorted

will go toward funding The Bridge’s

350 free recreational, educational

and job readiness programs.

Martino, Liberty take part in mock

meeting for Student Government

Day

Students from Martino and Liberty

junior high schools assumed

the roles of New Lenox officials

and Village staff April 24, as they

participated in a mock board meeting.

It was all part of a three-part exercise

coordinated between New

Lenox School District 122 and the

Village of New Lenox.

“It’s something we’ve done for

a long time within the community,

and it just gives the students

a chance to see how local government

works and really understand

the process in local government,”

said Bonnie Groen, principal of

Martino. “They do a nice job of

representing the district, and their

demos throughout the morning.

The spring fashion show — presented

by Jenny Applegate of The

Leading Image, Diva Me Bella and

Orland Park Crossing — offered

women a chance to see the latest

fashion, hair and makeup trends,

modeled by members of the south

suburban community. It is this type

of unique neighborhood connection

that makes Lady – A Women’s

Expo a truly special event for many.

“We’re the local community

newspaper, and everybody knows

who we are,” Warthen said. “So,

it’s a fun opportunity for us to put

faces with names.”

parents enjoy seeing them stepping

up to being young adults.”

While the actions taken by the

board were fake, the discussions

were not. Students discussed

the idea of hosting a community

clean-up day, the need to install a

new ice rink and a recent request

received by the Village to host a

concert for teens.

“It’s important that all of our

kids [have a good grasp of how

local government works],” Mayor

Tim Baldermann said. “For the

future of our schools, for the future

of our communities, for the

future of our state and our country,

we need smart, young people

to be engaged and involved, and

it starts at the local level. Let’s

face it: this is where you get your

streets plowed; this is where your

kids get educated; this is where

they recreate in the park district.”

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Children’s rock bands begin

summer season at Jenny’s

Southside Tap in Mokena

Mokena rock fans were treated

to live performances by two talented

young bands April 23.

Organized Chaos and Mentally

Purple performed at the All About

Music & Children’s Theatre’s

Rock Band Showcase at Jenny’s

Southside Tap in Mokena.

The concert served as a preview

for the groups’ busy summer season,

during which they are to perform

at events, fairs and festivals

across the south suburbs.

“There’s so many great shows

this summer,” rock band instructor

Todd Beebe said. “I just can’t wait

to get them in front of a big crowd.

It’s going to be great.”

His wife and AACMT creative

director Connie Johnson-Beebe

echoed his excitement, noting that

the groups’ Proud American Days

debut July 29 is especially noteworthy.

“This is our first year, and we’re

really excited to be playing at

Proud American Days in New

Lenox,” she said.

With a setlist featuring songs

like The Beatles’ “Love Me Do”

and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Pride

and Joy,” the music came well before

any of the young musicians

were born. Still, classic rock continues

to resonate with the next

generation of superstars. Mentally

Purple guitarist Genevieve

Schramm said some of her favorite

artists are classic rockers.

“I really like Tom Petty and Nirvana,

because ... I really like the

style of music,” Schramm said,

noting she is scheduled to see

Tom Petty in concert this summer.

“And it’s cool to know those

people, because their music is fun

to play and cool.”

and making sense of it

Kirsten Onsgard

kirsten@frankfortstation.com

It feels senseless.

A truck speeds across

four lanes, over an

embankment, into two cars

and through two storefronts.

Shocked, a store owner

calls 9-1-1. The driver is

unresponsive. And when

the fire department arrives,

the young man is revived

and hospitalized, later to be

jailed.

That’s what happened

about two weeks ago in

Frankfort Square in the

7200 block of West Benton

Drive near Harlem Avenue.

It was morning, and Shearin

Jurus had just opened her

tanning salon for the day.

Other business owners were

just arriving. Customers

were coming and going.

But in a flash, her truck

was totalled and her shop’s

windows smashed.

At first, it’s an incident

that sounds like a freak accident.

But the driver’s story

plays into a larger tragedy

in Will County: the 21-yearold

was allegedly under the

influence of heroin. Frankfort

Fire Protection District

administered Narcan, a

powerful treatment.

If it was required to save

his life, the young man is

lucky, relatively speaking.

Last year, 96 people in Will

County died from overdoses

related to heroin, fentanyl

and opiates.

As Jurus and I spoke

last week, we struggled to

make sense of the incident.

An alleged drug overdose

impacted her life in a way

she never expected, leaving

her to clean up the pieces

and shut down her salon for

several days.

She recalled several coincidences:

she never parks

her large truck in that spot,

but it ended up slowing the

trajectory of the truck. And

somehow, no one was hurt.

The good, the bad — it

felt random.

This was the first time

Jurus was affected by the

epidemic. Perhaps it’s

because of my age, but it’s

touched me a little closer.

I don’t know friends who

have died, but friends of

friends. My boyfriend has

acquaintances who were

killed. Facebook memorials

I read often lament the suddenness

of the tragedy.

But it’s not sudden, senseless

or random — this problem

has been going on for a

long time. And the epidemic

has become exponentially

more deadly.

What’s hopeful is Will

County has officials that see

this as it is: a mental health

crisis complicated and fed

by criminal activity. They

understand that locking

up users for a short time

doesn’t cure addition, and

that silence only fuels it.

These viewpoints evident at

last month’s annual Hero-

Helps summit.

As citizens — and as

good humans — it’s imperative

we are not complicit. If

you, a family member or a

friend has a substance abuse

or mental health problem,

there are free resources.

and Mental Health Services

READ IT AND

REAP

Summit Hill to present ‘Review of Revues’

Submitted by Summit Hill

School District 161

Performers in last year’s musical revue pose for a photo.

This year’s Review of the Revues will take place 7 p.m. May

5 and 6. Photo submitted

The Summit Hill Junior

High School music department

will be presenting its

10th annual Musical Revue

on Friday and Saturday, May

5 and 6. In honor of this being

the 10th year for the

event, the show will feature a

“Review of the Revues” with

highlights from each of the

nine previous years’ shows.

The Musical Revue involves

seventh- and eighthgraders

who are involved

in the music department,

whether in band, choir and/

or strings. Students perform

on stage, in the pit band, as

emcees and as members of

the stage, light and sound

crews. Students are also instrumental

in planning choreography

and with adding

their personal touches to the

revue. The cast is divided

into three groups for rehearsals,

each with specific

parts of the show to cover.

There are also three parts

of the show where the entire

cast will join together,

such as in the opening and

closing reviews of 2008 and

2016. Each of these three

groups meets once a week

for four weeks before coming

together for tech week

the first week of May. This is

also when the pit band (comprised

entirely of junior high

band members) will first

play the music live for the

cast to rehearse to. The band

had made recordings of the

pieces earlier in March that

the casts use to rehearse with

prior to tech week.

The two performances, on

May 5 and 6, will begin at

7:00 p.m. and be held in the

cafetorium at Summit Hill Junior

High. There is no admission

charge. In honor of this

being the 10th revue, a slide

show will loop for the audience

to watch while awaiting

the start of the show.- This

slide show will feature photos

of cast members from each of

the nine previous revues.

Students learn skills, grow with plant sale

Amanda Stoll, Assistant Editor

Again this year, students

in the Lincoln-Way Transition

Program have been

hard at work growing a variety

of flowers, herbs, spices,

vegetables and potted

plants in the greenhouse at

Lincoln-Way Central High

School.

The transition program

helps students with special

needs to gain life and job

skills after high school graduation.

Their annual plant

sales include the poinsettia

sale that is held annually

before Christmas, and the

spring plant sale, which is

coming up this weekend and

next weekend.

An array of garden- and

planter-worthy perennials

are overflowing in doublestacked

trays in the greenhouse

awaiting the sale, all

of which have been grown

by the students with little

more than supervision from

their instructor.

“I just monitor to make

sure everything is okay,

but they really know the

process,” special services

teacher Josh Kreske said.

“They’ve done a nice job

picking up how it’s supposed

to be done.”

He said the students started

working in the greenhouse

in February. At that

time, they began planting,

fertilizing and monitoring

for disease and bugs.

“If they’ve done it in the

past, they have an idea of

Breanna Ceci demonstrates how to carefully remove a dead leaf without damaging the

plant at Lincoln-Way Central High School on Thursday, April 27. All of the plants in the

greenhouse have been grown and tended to by students in the Lincoln-Way Transition

Program since February, and they are available for sale Saturday, May 6 and 13, from 9

a.m.-noon. Photos by Amanda Stoll/22nd Century Media

how it goes about, but we

have a lot of new students

this year,” Kreske said. “But,

after the first couple times

they came in, they were able

to set up their work area by

themselves, and they work

really independently.”

The project — which is

one of many the students

do throughout the year — is

not designed to steer the students

toward horticulture or

agriculture jobs, but rather to

give them transferable skills

they can use at any job.

“It just teaches them

work skills,”Kreske said. “It

teaches them how to follow

multi-step directions, work

amount of time [and] meet

certain requirements that

it has to look a certain way

before it can be a finished

product.”

Breanna Ceci is one of the

students who has been working

in the greenhouse this

semester, and she is quick

to recognize dead or dying

leaves on the plants.

She said it is important to

remove them carefully so

as not to damage the plant

and demonstrated the proper

way to “pinch” the leaves to

remove them.

Petunias, begonias, zinnias,

marigolds, impatiens,

celosia and alyssum, as well

as salvia — which is new to

the sale this year — will be

sold for $2 per six pack or

$12 per flat; Geraniums will

be sold for $3 per six pack or

$18 per flat.

Potted plants, including

A variety of flowers, vegetables, herbs, spices and potted

plants have been grown by students in the Lincoln-Way

Transition Program. Proceeds from the sale support the

program.

coleus, vegetables, spices

and herbs, will be sold for

$2 each, and larger potted

plants, such as wandering

Jew, Swedish ivy, spider

plants and citronella will be

sold for $5 each.

The greenhouse is located

off Schoolhouse Road

on the East side of the

school, and proceeds from

the sale go back to support

the Lincoln-Way Transition

Program.

Frankfort duo tunes up for bluegrass season

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

The Orland Park Public

Library’s lobby was filled

with music and a crowd

April 21.

Residents were eager to

enjoy acoustic music, compliments

of Nikki & Steve,

the Frankfort duo featuring

Nikki Giblin and Steve Haberichter.

Although the library may

seem like an unlikely venue

to host a concert of any kind,

Outreach Assistant Shane

Peterson explained that music

can regularly be heard at

a variety of events.

“We do a monthly musical

showcase in the lobby,

which generally tends to be

smaller groups,” he said.

“Sometimes, we do additional

musical events in our

conference rooms, and the

summer concert series is

coming up. That’s four concerts

out in the library pavilion

in the summer. We try to

have musical performances

anytime we can.

“It’s nice to be able to

bring people in, and that the

music emanates through the

lobby and up through the

teen section. We get a lot

of positive feedback from

people who enjoy the atmosphere

that it brings to the

library.”

A group of music lovers

from Peace Village in Palos

Park had nothing but praise

for the library’s concert

events. Rose Krc, who has

attended two previous concerts

at the library as well

as a lecture on the old Chicago

stockyards, said that

these performances give her

a chance to reconnect with a

variety of genres.

“I really like classical the

best, but I can relate to all of

this,” she said.

Her friend Marge Billich

added, “I like all kinds of

music — rock and roll, everything.”

Fellow Peace Village resident

Donna Ives said she

was hoping to hear the blues.

Ives was in luck, as Nikki

& Steve count the blues as

one of their favorite genres,

along with folk, country,

sultry soul and, most of all,

bluegrass. Both Giblin and

Haberichter serve as board

members for the annual

Frankfort Bluegrass Festival,

which is set to take place

on July 8 and 9 at Breidert

Green.

Elements of bluegrass

were on display throughout

the performance, as Haberichter’s

fast fingers made

easy work out of the most

complicated of compositions,

gliding up and down

the frets of his acoustic

guitar. Giblin’s expressive

vocals transfixed the crowd

on classics like Etta James’

“At Last” and contemporary

tunes, including The Derek

Trucks Band’s “Back Where

I Started,” the recording of

which features singing from

Truck’s talented wife, Susan

Tedeschi.

“This one will bring a tear

to a glass eye,” Haberichter

said before the duo dove into

the classic Leonard Cohen

heartbreaker “Hallelujah.”

There is something about

music that brings people together.

Much like Tedeschi

and Trucks, Giblin and Haberichter

are a couple, as well

as a performing duo. They

met as employees at World

Music Company in Beverly

more than 10 years ago, and

the rest is history.

Giblin and Haberichter

are gearing up for bluegrass

season, with a festival fundraiser

April 29 at Smokey

Barque BBQ in Frankfort.

More information about

Nikki & Steve and their upcoming

events can be found

on Facebook.

The Dish

Happy Hour taps into hunger, too, with new menu at Bonefish Grill

Bill Jones, Managing Editor

Stop into most bars between

4-6 p.m., and one will

quickly find that a strange

thing happens. Two hours

magically become one Happy

Hour, where the drinks

tend to flow freely thanks to

discounted prices.

But usually by the end

of those two hours, guests

are starting to recall that

they have not eaten since

lunchtime, should maybe

get something in their bellies.

But dinner is waiting

at home, so the $30 entrées

are out of the question.

And no one can seem

to agree on which apps

to order.

Enter Bonefish Grill’s

new Hand-Crafted Happy

Hour menu, which alongside

four new cocktails offers

a smattering of food

choices in smaller portions,

with the $5 drink

specials complemented by

$6 dining options that hark

back to Bonefish’s former

Bar Bites offerings, but

with a new collection of

flavors.

“We’ve had the drinks

side for quite some time,

but we finally brought back

the small plate platform,”

managing partner Nicholas

Kapellas said. “Guests were

asking for it, really. Maybe

they don’t want to have a

full meal but just want to

sit down and try a few new

plates.”

The crispy calamari and

mussels Josephine already

were on the appetizer menu,

though in bigger portions,

but everything else is new.

When asked about favorites,

Kapellas said the ahi

tuna poke is a must-try because

of its fresh avocado

purée, the wonton crisps

and, of course, the fresh

tuna.

Bonefish Grill’s new Happy Hour menu includes (left to right, top) wagyu beef sliders, crispy au gratin bites, the tropical tiki martini, crispy cod sliders,

(bottom) ahi tuna poke, a fresh margarita, calamari and a raspberry vodka Collins. Photos by Bill Jones/22nd Century Media, Illustration by Nancy

Burgan/22nd Century Media

“You can’t get sushigrade

tuna in Orland in too

many places,” Kapellas said

of the appeal.

But his go-to has become

the crispy au gratin

bites — or as the kids are

calling them, nowadays,

“grat tots.” The blend of

potatoes au gratin, cheese,

bacon and green onion is

served alongside two sauces:

a smoky ranch and sour

cream.

“They have such great

flavor,” he opined.

But tastes, of course,

vary. And overhearing our

conversation, bartender Angela

DeMarco slyly pointed

toward the crispy cod sliders,

which she said she

likes even more than the

special menu’s wagyu beef

sliders.

Build and Move into Your New Home from the low $200s

With Lincoln-Way Schools at Prairie Trails in Manhattan

Distinctive Home Builders provides homeowners the

highest quality home on the market

Distinctive Home Builders

continues to add high quality

homes to the Manhattan

landscape at Prairie Trails; its

latest new home community,

located within the highly-regarded

Lincoln-Way School

District. Many families are

happy to call Prairie Trails

home and are pleased that

Distinctive is able to deliver a

new home with zero punch list

items in 90 days. Before closing,

each home undergoes an

industry-leading checklist that

ensures each home measures

up to the firm’s high quality

standards.

“Actually our last average

was 81 working days from excavation

to receiving a home

occupancy permit - without

sacrificing quality,” said Bryan

Nooner, president of Distinctive

Home Builders. “Everyone

at the company works

extremely hard to continually

achieve this delivery goal for

our homeowners. Our three

decades building homes provides

this efficient construction

system. Many of our

skilled craftsmen have been

working with our company for

Recently closed Prairie Trails Arbor Model

over 20 years. We also take

pride on having excellent communicators

throughout our

organization. This translates

into a positive buying and

building experience for our

homeowners and one of the

highest referral rates in the industry

for Distinctive.”

In all, buyers can select

from 13 ranch, split-level and

six two-story single-family

home styles; each offering

three to eight different exterior

elevations. The three- to

four-bedroom homes feature

two to two-and-one-half

baths, two- to three-car garages

and a family room, all in

approximately 1,600 to over

3,000 square feet of living

space. Basements are included

in most models as well. Distinctive

also encourages customization

to make your new

home truly personalized to

suit your lifestyle.

Oversize home sites; brick

exteriors on all four sides of

the first floor; custom maple

cabinets; ceramic tile or hardwood

floors in the kitchen,

baths and foyer; genuine wood

trim and doors; granite countertops

and concrete driveways

can all be yours at Prairie

Trails. All home sites at Prairie

Trails can accommodate a

three-car garage; a very important

amenity to the Manhattan

homebuyer, according

to Nooner.

“When we opened Prairie

Trails we wanted to provide

the best new home value for

the dollar and we feel with

offering Premium Standard

Features that we do just that.

So why wait? This is truly the

best time to build your dream

home!”

Distinctive offers custom

maple kitchen cabinets featuring

solid wood construction

(no particle board), have solid

wood drawers with dove tail

joints, which is very rare in the

marketplace. “When you buy

a new home from Distinctive,

you truly are receiving custom

made cabinets in every home

we sell no matter what the

price range,” noted Nooner.

Nooner added that all

homes are highly energy efficient.

Every home built will

have upgraded wall and ceiling

insulation values with

Recently closed Prairie Trails Arbor Model

energy efficient windows and

high efficiency furnaces. Before

homeowners move into

their new home, Distinctive

Home Builders conducts a

blower door test that pressurizes

the home to ensure that

each home passes a set of very

stringent Energy Efficiency

guidelines.

Typically a wide variety of

homes are available to tour

that include ranch and twostory

homes.

Distinctive is also offering

a brand new home, the

Stonegrove, a 3,000 square

foot open concept home with a

split foyer entry, formal living

and dining rooms, a two-story

great room, four bedrooms

and an upstairs laundry room.

Distinctive also offers Appbased

technology allowing its

homeowners to be updated

on the progress of their new

home 24 hours a day, seven

days a week at the touch of a

button.

Prairie Trails is also a beautiful

place to live featuring a

20-acre lake on site, as well

as direct access to the 22-mile

Wauponsee Glacial Prairie

Path that borders the community

and meanders through

many neighboring communities

and links to many other

popular trails. The Manhattan

Metra station is also nearby.

Besides Prairie Trails, Distinctive

Home Builders has

built hundreds of homes

throughout Manhattan in the

Butternut Ridge and Leighlinbridge

developments, as well

as thousands in the Will and

south Cook county areas over

the past 30 years.

center for unadvertised

specials and view the numerous

styles of homes being

offered and the available lots.

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Emily Scianna

Emily Scianna is a senior

forward on the Lincoln-Way

East girls soccer team.

You have been on

varsity since freshman

year. What is it like as

a senior this year?

It’s cool to see the juniors

and sophomores play also,

because I was one of them.

I love being a leader on the

team, and being the oldest is

kind of cool at school, too.

What has that

leadership looked like?

On the field , it’s a big

role because I have to be in

charge of all the forwards,

because I’m the only senior

forward. Off the field, we

have a group message and

the seniors like to take control

of everything. It’s really

nice to be a part of that.

How has it been

working with Coach

Murphy this year?

It’s been really great. I

had Coach Papa freshman,

sophomore and junior year.

Me and him were very close,

but Coach Murphy is great.

I love the new dynamic, and

it’s cool to see two different

coaches in high school —

not many people get to do

that.

You’ve been scoring

more this year. What

has caused that shift?

I think it’s all my mentality.

I’ve gotten a lot of confidence

this year. Being a senior,

it’s cool being a leader

and begin in control.

I’ve really been trying my

hardest being aggressive,

and I’ve gotten rewarded

from that.

What have you learned

over the years?

I’ve learned to always stay

humble — that’s a big thing.

Confidence, not cockiness.

Especially against all the

other good teams: the other

Lincoln-Ways, Lockport and

all them. Confidence definitely

is key.

What has been the

toughest moment so far

this season?

I think the Lyons game

was pretty tough. We were

tied 0-0 until about more

than halfway through the

second half. It was hard as

a whole team to not let up

a goal, or to not let up anything.

That was the toughest

for all of us.

What are your goals

going forward?

I plan on playing club at

my university, San Diego

State University. I definitely

want to coach when I’m

older. I love the game, and

I don’t want to stop playing.

What are your plans for

San Diego State?

I’m not going to play for

the university, just club and

intramurals.

I have family out there,

and I just absolutely love it

— the weather, the people

Julie McMann/22nd Century

Media

— it’s just a different place.

I love being able to go there.

I’m undecided. I might

go into education or athletic

training.

If you won the lottery,

what would you spend

your money on?

My aunt has lung cancer,

and she has this foundation

called LUNGevity Foundation.

I would probably donate

all of it, to be honest,

because she’s a great role

model for me, and I want

everything for her to be

OK. It’s hard seeing her go

through all this.

What are you looking

forward to this year?

Definitely prom, social.

I’m excited for playoffs. I

think we’ll go far this season.

I’m just really excited

for the end of my senior year.

Athlete of the Month

Providence Catholic hockey player

wins hotly contested April title

Bill Jones, Managing Editor

It is rare that 22nd Century

Media Southwest Chicago’s

Athlete of the Month competition

ends in a tie. Potentially

unprecedented, though, is

the contest ending in a threeway

stalemate at the end of

regulation.

But as everyone outside

of soccer — and, on rare occasion,

American football

— knows, ending in ties is

no fun. So this past month’s

Athlete of the Month competition

got sent to the rare staff

overtime tiebreaker vote.

The choices came down to

Lockport Township baseball

player Kevin Davis, Providence

Catholic hockey player

Kevin Horan and Lincoln-

Way East boys water polo

competitor Ryan Murphy.

When the dust settled, Horan

earned the win yet again.

The senior has played on

the varsity hockey team for

the past two years, in which

the Celtics won back-toback

Kennedy Cups. He

them hard in practice lately,

including (Monday). They’re

tired. They’re grumpy. But

they still came out today to

compete.”

With the postseason approaching,

the focus for East

will begin to switch in practices.

The SWSC outdoor

championships take place on

Thursday, May 11, at Sandburg,

and sectional is May 18.

“It’ll start to get easier,” Widinski

said. “Their legs start to

feel better and they can get everything

else going. We want

“And have fun,” assistant

coach Wayne Hollow said.

“It’s a long season, so need to

keep them going late here.”

Widinski and Hollow have

expectations for several competitors

in the track and in the

Stringfellow has jumped 42

inches to his season-best long

jump of 21 feet, 7 inches.

Boys track and field

Griffins eye postseason during tri-meet

Frank Gogola

Freelance Reporter

Lincoln-Way East sophomore

Quinton Stringfellow

knew his long jump was not

his best with approach and

footing. But on a day with

only two other teams competing

and multiple competitors

sitting out, his distance

was good enough to take first

place in the event.

Stringfellow’s win was

one of several individual

event victories for East on

Tuesday, April 25, at Bradley-Bourbonnais.

No official

team scores were kept in the

SouthWest Suburban Conference

tri-meet between East,

Bradley-Bourbonnais and

Thornwood.

“What this is, is a glorified

practice,” East coach Ross

Widinski said. “We didn’t

bring a whole team. Other

teams aren’t starting all their

regular guys. There’s no pole

vault.

“Not being an invite, this

was a chance for some of the

younger guys to get a chance

to show what they could do.

They were really competing

to show their ability.”

Stringfellow jumped 19

feet, 6 ½ inches in his lone

attempt. The jump was more

than 2 feet shorter than his

season best of 21 feet, 7 inches,

but it was good enough to

win the event.

“I jumped off the wrong

foot, too,” he said.

Stringfellow and teammate

Randy Johnson tied for

first place in the triple jump

(40 feet, 2 ½ inches). Senior

Cole Paraday won the discus

throw. Paraday scratched on

all three of his shot put attempts

but had the distance to

win had he not scratched.

On the track, senior Nick

Miranda took first place in the

400-meter dash. Freshman AJ

Henning won the 100-meter

dash. Sophomore Michael

Honchar crossed the line first

in the 110-meter hurdles.

The 800-meter relay team

finished second behind

Thornwood. The Griffins

took the lead after Thornwood

was slow with the

handoff between the second

and third runners, but Thornwood

came back to win.

Several of East’s top distance

guys got the day off

to rest. Some who ran in the

800-meter run and 1,600-meter

run were switched up,

“Right now, they’re running

on tired legs,” Widinski

Griffins play to strengths, step up in win

Frank Gogola

Freelance Reporter

Lincoln-Way East senior

Joe Prestamer knows he

does not have the quickest

fastball, so he has to trust

in his off-speed pitches this

season.

He looked to those offspeed

pitches again to help

East escape a late-game,

bases-loaded jam and end

Sandburg’s best chance of

staging a comeback in a recent

conference victory.

“I’m not really going to

blow fastballs by guys too

much, so I rely on keeping

guys off balance,” Prestamer

said. “My off-speed

have to.”

Prestamer gave up one run

in six innings and his offense

took advantage of walks

as East beat Sandburg, 3-1,

for the second time in three

days to sweep the defending

SouthWest Suburban Blue

champs on Thursday, April

27, in Orland Park.

Leading 3-1 with two outs

in the fifth, Prestamer used

his curveball to get Ryan

Hampe to pop out in front

of home plate with the bases

loaded. After bouncing two

off-speed pitches to turn an

0-2 count into a 2-2 count, he

put a curveball over the plate

and got Hampe to swing underneath

the ball.

Prestamer had loaded the

bases with a two-out walk

and hit by pitch, but East

coach Paul Babcock had

trust in him to get the final

out.

“No thought of taking him

out in that situation,” Babcock

said. “Joe’s the man.

He’s who I’m going to have

out there in that spot. No

doubt in my mind.”

The Eagles managed just

one run during the 14 innings

against East. In the

second game, they had four

hits, three walks and one hit

by pitch, but they left seven

runners on base.

The Griffins got enough

offense without catcher and

cleanup hitter Jimmy Quinn,

who was out sick, who homered

in the first meeting.

They had six walks and five

hits – only one extra-base hit

– and all three of their runs

were walks that came around

to score against pitcher Evan

Tenuta.

“We’re not getting it done

offensively,” Sandburg

coach Jim Morsovillo said.

“We swung better today,

hit the ball harder, but everything

we hit was right at

them. We got some hits, got

some guys on but didn’t get

the big hit. And we walked

guys who came around to

score. You can’t do that and

win baseball games.”

Sandburg (10-4, 2-2)

dropped its second game in

three days after only losing

twice in its first 12 games.

It lost 8-0 on April 25 in

Frankfort against pitcher

Danny Zimmerman.

“Last game, [Zimmerman]

really filled it up and

competed,” Morsovillo said.

“This game, [Prestamer]

made more mistakes over

the middle of the plate, but

we didn’t make him pay.”

The wins over Sandburg

added to the Griffins’ (8-

10, 3-1) resurgence. They

have gone 7-2 after starting

1-8.

“I’m not trying to sound

cocky, but with these guys

the past two games, that’s

what I expect,” Babcock

said. “I did not expect how

we started the season. When

these guys play the way they

can, good things can happen.”

East struck first when

Brett Melby drove in Zimmerman

with a two-out RBI

single in the top of the first.

Mike Wallace drew a bases-loaded

walk in the second,

pushing pinch runner

Jacob Slager across the plate

to put East up 2-1. It was the

third walk of the inning surrendered

by Tenuta.

said. “There’s more to life

than soccer so it’s great to

play for something bigger

than the game.”

Theiss heaped praise on

Galassini and McInturff.

“Galassini is good,” he

said. “We tried to double

her, but good players make

plays. Sometimes you have

to tip your hat. You have to

give credit to [McInturff],

too. She’s whipping great

balls in. Those three set

pieces made all the difference.”

Despite falling behind

3-0, the Warriors kept battling.

Madison Mikalauski

broke the shutout with 8:04

to go when she put in a rebound

after Kate Honan

fired a free kick off the

crossbar.

“I’m proud of the girls for

fighting,” Mikalauski said.

“We could’ve played better,

but at least we didn’t give

up.

“It was really fun to be

able to participate in this

event, too. The community

has done a lot for us and it’s

nice to be able to give back.

This game helps us think of

those we know who were

affected by cancer and it

makes us grateful for everything

we have.”

West nearly made it 3-2

with under two minutes

left, but East goalkeeper

Kim Seper robbed Mikalauski

with a leaping

save.

Erin Toomey had two

saves for the Warriors.

“The girls never quit,”

Theiss said. “They got a

goal back and they had a

great opportunity to score

again in the final minute and

a half.

“These girls are going to

continue to fight. They’re

improving every day. If they

keep that up, who knows

what can happen the rest of

the way in conference and

into the postseason.”

Lincoln-Way East coach

Mike Murphy was thrilled

with his team’s 3-1 win

Tuesday night over Lincoln-Way

West.

The night, though, was

about more than soccer.

The rivals came together

for the annual Kick For a

Cure breast cancer awareness

game, raising money

for cancer research.

“I love this game because

it teaches the girls and everyone

else that when we’re

on the field we’re competing,

but off the field we’re

competing for a common

cause,” Murphy said. “The

parents at both schools put

in a lot of effort. West did

a great job hosting. To give

back to the community is

outstanding.”

The teams wore special

T-shirts and helped

organize gift baskets that

were auctioned off. Proceeds

were donated to Silver

Cross Hospital Cancer

Center.

“We’ve now raised over

$30,000 since we started the

event in 2009,” West coach

Jeff Theiss said. “This continues

to grow every year.

It’s always a special experience

to see the community

come together for a bigger

cause.”

On the field, East’s

star midfielder Bianca

Galassini proved to be unstoppable.

The South Carolina recruit

had a hat trick, scoring

all three goals on headers,

as the visiting Griffins prevailed

in a SouthWest Suburban

Red game.

It was the conference

opener for East (10-3-1,

1-0) and a key victory over

the Warriors (9-6-1, 1-1),

who had established themselves

as a major contender

Lincoln-Way East’s Bianca Galassini and West’s Sara

in the league with its win

over Andrew.

“We knew West was going

to be a tough opponent,”

Galassini said. “This was

a big result to improve our

spot in conference and with

our sectional seeding.”

Galassini got the Griffins

on the board in the

30th minute, heading in a

long throw-in from Anna

Power.

It was the start of a strong

performance from Power.

“Anna did a great job

winning headers,” Murphy

said. “She played some

dangerous balls outside and

she was dangerous on the

throws. I was really happy

with how she played.”

After playing nearly the

entire first half on the offensive

side of the field with

strong winds at its back,

East led 1-0 and faced the

challenge of having the

wind against it in the second

half.

The Griffins, though, negated

that disadvantage by

scoring two goals off corner

kicks early in the half.

Galassini headed in

Kelsey McInturff’s corner

kick with 38:35 left in the

match, then did it again with

28:29 to go.

“I love taking corner

kicks,” McInturff said. “I

know as long as I do what I

need to do, Bianca is going

to finish it.”

McInturff was especially

motivated by the Kick For a

Cure event.

Players who have had

family members or friends

affected by cancer were

recognized before the game

and wore patches on their

uniform in honor of their

“angels” — those who

died from cancer —“warriors”

—those still battling

the disease — and

survivors.

“I had two angels and two

survivors to honor,” McInturff

said. “Having a lot of

family behind me and a lot

of people to play for meant

a lot to me. The names on

those wings were with me

during the game.”

Galassini, who honored

her aunt Idelma, a cancer

survivor, was also grateful

for the chance to play for a

cause.

“It’s really awesome to

play for a good cause,” she

RANDY WHALEN

Freelance Reporter

In an old-fashioned pitchers’

duel, Alex Storako came

up big in the circle and at the

plate.

The Lincoln-Way East junior

fired a two-hitter from

the mound and belted what

proved to be the winning

home run as the Griffins rallied

for a 3-2 victory over

a tough Bolingbrook team

in a first place SouthWest

Suburban Conference Blue

Division battle on Thursday,

April 27, in Bolingbrook.

With the win, East (14-2,

4-0) claimed the top spot in

the SWSC Blue by itself.

Bolingbrook (8-7, 3-1),

which had defeated visiting

Lockport Township 9-1 on

April 18, stood toe-to-toe

with the Griffins before a

3-run fifth proved to be the

difference.

“This was a huge game,”

East senior left fielder Sidney

Bloomfield said. “We

went 4-0 this [past] week

and are playing well.”

With East trailing 2-0,

Bloomfield came up big in

the fifth. With one out, the

number nine hitter, sophomore

second baseman Lindsay

LaDere, put down a

bunt. Raider senior pitcher

Lorrin Pondo picked it up,

but her hurried throw was

low and skipped past first

base as LeDere reached on

Bolingbrook’s only error of

the game.

Pondo (0 ERA, 7 H, 8 K, 2

BB) came back with a strikeout,

but up stepped Bloomfield

(2-for-4, R, RBI). She

bashed the first pitch she saw

off the right-hander to the

right center field gap for an

RBI triple that cut the Griffin

deficit in half.

“I was just looking for

something to drive,” Bloomfield

said. “I was just looking

for something to get the

team going and give us some

energy. I wanted to get our

bench going.”

The Griffins bench —

which had been loud early

on during the cold, gray day,

but had grown more quiet

when they were seven outs

away from defeat — was

then alive with cheers again.

Moments later, they were

pouring out to home plate.

That’s because they came

out to congratulate Storako

following her slam.

“It was big,” said Storako,

who had a big smile on her

face after rounding third

with her second homer of the

season. “I just saw the pitch

and reacted to it. I just wanted

to get a hit for the team.”

Storako (1-for-3, BB, 2

RBI) had fallen behind in

the count 0-2, but worked it

to 2-2. The fifth offering was

high and inside, and the lefthanded

batter bashed it well

over the fence in right center.

“No, I really didn’t know

[that it was a home run] right

away,” Storako said. “But it

felt good off the bat. After

that, it was very easy to relax

[in the circle] and I knew the

“I was just looking for something

to get the team going and give us

some energy. I wanted to get our

bench going.”

Sidney Bloomfield — East senior left fielder on

landing a big RBI hit

defense was behind me.”

They were, but Storako

didn’t give them many opportunities

as she struck out

13, walked none, hit a batter,

and allowed two hits while

retiring the final 13 batters.

The right-hander was especially

tough after hitting her

home run, getting the final

nine outs on seven strikeouts

and two ground balls back

to herself. In fact, she struck

out the side — the heart of

the Bolingbrook lineup —

on nine pitches in the bottom

of the seventh.

Storako settled in, but

started shaky, hitting center

fielder Katrina Yep with on

her first pitch of the game.

One out later, Pondo lined a

single to right and both runners

moved up to second and

third on a wild pitch. With

two outs, Storako uncorked

another wild pitch and Yep

raced home. When senior

catcher Riley Lang’s throw

to Storako covering the plate

got away, Pondo came home

too and it was 2-0.

Junior right fielder Nia

Fowlkes had the other Raider

hit, an infield single to

deep short with one out in

the second inning. But she

never moved from there, and

that was the final Bolingbrook

base runner.

East had a golden opportunity

to put runs on the

board in the second. Senior

designated hitter Christine

Malito (2-for-3) singled to

right, junior first baseman

Lauren Hunter walked and

sophomore third baseman

Lexi Krause (1-for-3) had a

bunt single to load the bases.

But Pondo got a pop-out

back to herself and a pair of

strikeouts to end the inning.

Griffin leadoff hitter Alli

Jaquith (1-for-4) had the

team’s other hit: double to

left center with one out in

the seventh.

Winning close conference

games is something the

Griffins have done for years.

They are the two-time defending

SWSC Blue champions,

but with many new

faces on this year’s squad,

there were question marks

on how they would mesh.

“With [Lincoln-Way]

North closing and a lot of

different people coming together,

we’ve jelled really

well,” Bloomfield said. “Our

theme this year has been

‘synergy.’ That’s what we

have.”

Storako, who transferred

in from Bishop McNamara

after pitching two seasons

for the Irish, has added to

that. Did she expect to be in

these big games when she

came to East?

“I came in expecting a

good, exciting season,” Storako

said. “That’s what we’ve

had so far.”

East opened the week on

Monday, April 24, by hosting

Plainfield South and

coming away with a 7-5 victory.

Krause (2-for-2) and

Jaquith (2-for-4) led the offense

and Storako had eight

strikeouts in the circle. The

next day, the Griffins hosted

Stagg in a SWSC Blue game

and won 10-0 in five innings.

Bloomfield (3-for-3)

and senior center fielder Ami

Ill (2-for-3, HR, 3 RBI) had

multi hits while Hunter and

Krause clubed homers in

the 13-hit attack. Freshman

Danielle Drogemuller had

six strikeouts in four innings

to register the win.

Then on Wednesday, April

26, East traveled to Minooka

and defeated the host Indians

7-1. Hunter and LaDere

led the offense with two hits

and three RBI piece. Storako

went the first five innings to

get the win and finished with

nine strikeouts.
