Rep. Scott Drury declares AG bid

Xavier Ward, Editor

The Illinois race for

governor will have one

less democratic competitor

as State District 58

Rep. Scott Drury, D–Highwood,

has announced his

candidacy for attorney

general instead.

This comes after State

Attorney General Lisa Madigan

announced Sept. 15

she would not seek reelection

in 2018. She has been

the state’s attorney general

since 2003.

“Almost immediately

upon hearing the news that

Lisa Madigan would not

be running for re-election,

my phone began buzzing,”

Drury said at a press conference

in downtown Chicago

Tuesday, Sept. 19.

“People were asking me

if I would consider running,

they said to me that

they hoped I would run,

and they said, almost universally,

that what Illinois

needs is an attorney general

who is fiercely independent.

An attorney general

who has experience

as a prosecutor, someone

who they know is going

to stand up against that

state’s most powerful interests.

I agree.”

Drury commended Madigan

on representing the

state on social issues, but

said the Office of Attorney

General lacked in prosecuting

government crime,

fraud and corruption.

“The office can and really

must do more,” Drury


Drury appeared to question

the timing of Madigan’s


Madigan had only last

month asked for Democratic

support in the state.

She did not give a reason

as to why she is not running

again, but said she

does not plan to run for

Drury stands in front of a room of reporters and

cameras to annouce his candidacy for Illinois Attorney

General. The Highwood native announced he would

run for attorney general shortly after standing Attorney

General Lisa Madigan announced she would not seek a

fifth term. Xavier Ward/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

mayor of Chicago, as was


“They probably didn’t

anticipate this when they

came up with this plan in a

dark room months or years

ago, that Drury would already

be in a statewide

race,” he said.“Whether

you want to call it a fix,

whether you want to say

it’s rigged, whatever term

you want to use, the reality

is the powers that be made

a decision that they want

to have a chosen person in

there and they don’t want

to have a big primary.”

Drury said he heard

months ago Madigan was

going to run again, but

now that September is

here, she’s no longer going

running and some

issued press releases declaring

their candidacy

suspiciously soon after her


Drury, an adjunct professor

of law at Northwestern

University and

former federal prosecutor,

has been fiercely critical of

Madigan’s stepfather Michael,

state speaker of the

House, previously comparing

him to the fictional

character Voldemort from

the Harry Potter series.

He referenced Harry

Potter again when announcing

his run for attorney

general, saying it was

as if he’d been chosen by

the “Sorting Hat”.

“This is the right position

for me, I think everyone

in the state of Illinois

knows that, if they don’t

know that they certainly

will in time,” Drury said.

“When I’m attorney general,

no one and I mean no

one, will be above or beyond

the law.”

Drury said that he would

run an evidence-based office,

going where the evidence

leads whether it’s

the Governor’s Office or

the state assembly.

Drury also noted that he

was in a unique position

to run for attorney general

given Madigan’s surprise

announcement because

he was already running a

statewide campaign.

“This position is the position

that will allow us

to implement the changes

we’ve been fighting for

years without being shackled

down by a dysfunctional

general assembly

and a governor a speaker

of the house who can’t get

along,” Drury said.

Heller Nature Center Family Campfire delights both young and old

Hilary Anderson

Freelance Reporter

Who wants to play squirrel?

Naturalist Meghan Meredith

asked a group of

youngsters who accompanied

their parents and

grandparents to the Park

District of Highland Park’s

Heller Nature Center’s

Family Campfire event the

evening of Friday, Sept. 22.

Squirrel was one of the

games naturalists Meredith

and Ryan Zike played with

the group of children to

teach them about the season

of Fall and some of the

changes that come with it.

“What are these things

on the ground?” Meredith

asked again.

“Acorns,” said Camille

Bryant, 9.

“And what do the squirrels

do with the acorns,”

Zike asked the children.

“They take and store

them for the winter,” said

Brandon Delman, 8.

The games continued

much to the youngsters’

delight, all with the idea

of learning about what

happens in nature with

the coming of Fall.“Who

wants to volunteer to be a

fox?,” Meredith asked the

young crowd again.

“I do, I do,” Hannah Schultz,

5, and Avery Ingram, 4,

chimed in unison. Schultz

was there with her brother,

her sister, Lacey, 2.

The adults enjoyed the

evening as much as the

youngsters did.

“We love the Heller Nature

Center and try to come

to as many programs as

they have especially for the

young people,” said Carolyn

Bennett, who attended

with her husband Tim and

their daughter, Christina, 2.

“I like to come here and

just walk the trails,” said

Pam Bengier, “We moved

“We are going to do two

things on this hike,” stated

Meredith. “One is to look

for color. The other is to

listen for sounds.”

The group walked a short

distance past some colorful

prairie flowers.“Today is

what we call the Autumnal

Equinox when there

is almost an equal amount

of dark and light outside,”

Zike said. “Daylight is getting

shorter now.”A discussion

started about what

happens when leaves fall to

the ground.

Cook County wage

updates discussed among


Northfield is currently

subject to the Cook County

minimum wage and sick

leave ordinances that took

effect on July 1, but three

communities that border

Northfield opted out of the

ordinances over the summer

— Northbrook, Wilmette

and Glenview.

Northfield hasn’t yet

opted out of the ordinances,

but like its neighbors,

it has the authority to opt

out if it so desires.

Thus, the Northfield

Village Board held a public

comment session on

the ordinances at its Tuesday,

Sept. 19 meeting.

The sick leave ordinance

mandates employees

who work at least 80

hours in a 120-day period

accrue an hour of paid sick

leave for every 40 hours

worked up to a maximum

of 40 hours per year. Minimum

wage in Illinois is

currently $8.25 an hour,

but the County ordinance

set the minimum wage at

$10 an hour starting July

1, with the wage going up

$1 each year until July 1,

2020, when it will reach


“I really don’t have an

issue with the minimum

wage because I’ve never

paid any employee that

I’ve ever had minimum

wage,” said Lucy Callahan,

owner of Peachtree

Place. “I find that we really

probably couldn’t

get help in this area if we

only paid minimum wage.

My concern is sick leave

for the inconvenience it’s

going to provide for us in

keeping track of it.”

Task force tests response

to possibility of new ice


The Citizen Task Force

that is exploring facility

options for addressing the

capital needs problems

confronting the Glenview

Park District will send an

explanatory letter to registered

voters on Friday,

Sept. 29, after holding its

second meeting on Sept.


The primary concern is

the 44-year-old Glenview

Community Ice Center.

According to the findings

of the task force, it

is a very old and poorquality

facility that has no

prime-time ice available,

no ability to provide new

programming and no ability

to generate additional

revenue. It is also unable

to meet the demand for

more programming.

The task force believes

it is urgent to resolve

these issues because costs

keep going up, the equipment

and facility continue

to age and become more

costly to operate, and

there are compliance and

accessibility problems.

Also, the task force considers

it important to leverage

low interest rates

and build or replace at

current costs.

Two concepts were considered:

putting a new facility

with two and a half

ice sheets on the existing

site or renovating the existing

main rink and adding

one and a half new

sheets and associated support

spaces. Both would

phase construction in order

to allow the main rink

to operate as long as possible

during construction.

Writing Life

Fall brings out the best in us, usually

Wendy S. Anderson

Contributing Columnist


fall right into fall, my

favorite time of year,

albeit that my leastfavorite

season soon follows.

Fall affects people

differently. Some begin

dropping into their sad

time as the days shorten

and cool; many become

invigorated by the painted

majesty of the season. I

contain both feelings. Fall

is when I feel most alive

– indeed, it’s when I was

born – yet it’s also when

both my parents began

their descent, mom dying

from complications of diabetes,

Dad after a series of

strokes. It was a hard few


Perhaps emotional

conflict is why fall makes

me hungrier, both on an

inner level and literally.

I crave good books,

compelling movies, and

solitariness. I also crave

substantial meals and

enjoy making and sharing

them. I take brisk jaunts

with my dog, Louie, who

trots more robustly when

the weather cools. I might

visit nearby parks, Sunset

being a favorite. The

lakefront takes on a quiet

luster. Preserves like Ryerson

Woods and Heller

Nature Center beckon,

and I think more often

about a snapping fire and

warm brandy.

My thoughts seem

clearer in fall, or at least

I’m more philosophical,

more attuned to “small

things” that are life’s best

pleasures. An example is

the tiny library I happily

came across on St. Johns

Avenue one morning

as I walked to the train.

A sticker on this mini

“house of books” indicates

it’s from a group

called Little Free Library,

a nonprofit that “inspires

a love of reading, builds

community, and sparks

creativity by fostering

neighborhood book

exchanges around the

world.” Selections ranged

from the words of Ian

McEwan to those of

Danielle Steel to a variety

of children’s books. Take

a book; leave one. What a

lovely concept.

Just up the road, Ravinia

Coffee Station offers

a haven for early morning

commuters. One recent

day two regulars were

debating the safety of the

rerouted bike trail across

the street, which skirts

along the eastern edge

of a busy parking lot’s

entryway. One patron

argued the new configuration

was more dangerous

than the previous one,

when bikers and pedestrians

went straight through

the lot. Another disagreed.

Conversation ceased with

the signal of an approaching


Camaraderie comes

out in fall. One unusually

warm evening my

husband I walked to get

gelato and found downtown

Highland Park to be

bustling. Families, school

friends, couples, singles,

dogs – it seemed everyone

was out and about,

presenting our community

as a lovely, lively place

to be. People waved or

shouted hellos, or just

took comfort in the quiet

observation of the scene.

A woman walking a

handsome, large dog and

an adorable smaller one

stopped to chat with some

teenagers she knew. She

immediately cleaned up

when her dog embarrassed

her by doing his business

on the busy sidewalk.

I wished everyone

was so inclined to be

so thoughtful. Alas, not

everyone is.

The other day I caught a

woman in the act of walking

away after her large

dog relieved itself on the

(also busy) sidewalk by

my house. She was pretty

dressed-up for dog walking,

even carrying a purse.

It took her awhile to notice

her dog had done its

business, she was so busy

playing with her phone.

When she did notice, she

looked annoyed. Then

she looked back down

the sidewalk, then ahead

down the sidewalk, before

she began to move.

She was sure surprised

when I approached from

her left and chirped: “Do

you need a bag?” She

stopped abruptly and

informed me she had a

bag, thank you, in her

purse. She took her time

digging it out and using it,

then glared in my general

direction before she

marched off. My guess is,

“irritated” is part of her


Which brings me back

to the annoying people

among us even when the

days grow more autumnally

beautiful: those who

don’t clean up after their

pets. Clean up! And by

that I don’t mean, leave

a plastic bag of poo in

the bushes by someone

else’s property. Two full

dog-poo bags appeared

recently in bushes by

a nearby house that is

empty and for sale. And

don’t toss them into the

ravine. On a recent walk,

I counted five distinctive

poo-bags in one ravine,

which does detract a bit

from the magnificence.

My question for the

tossers (an appropriate

British term; look it up):

What makes this nasty

behavior of yours OK?

HP Country Club sale

I have lost a lot of

sleep thinking about

the closing of the Highland

Park Country Club/

Golf Course, and thinking

about the manipulation

to that end by the

Park District of Highland


I have tried to focus

on the intent of the city

council of Highland

Park in 1996, at the time

the intergovernmental

lease agreement was created

between the City of

Highland Park and the

Park District of Highland

Park. I believe that the

city wanted to have the

Highland Park Park District

operate the Highland

Park Country Club/Golf

Course for 99 years and

pay rent to the city, which

would benefit the residents

and taxpayers of

Highland Park. The City

also provided protection

in the lease agreement

that if in spite of the best

efforts by the park district,

the park district operations

became fiscally

unreasonable and that in

order to save taxpayer

dollars, the park district

could request permission

from the City of HP to

close the HPCC golf operations.

This permission

was not sought and not


In my opinion, the

Park District boldly initiated

a plan for the

country club that was

contrary to the intent of

the lease. The Park District’s

intent was to drive

down HPCC business by

announcing that they

would not take banquet

reservations after 2016,

then moved that date to

2017, and again moved

that date to 2018 (banquets

are 48% of total revenue

and the most profitable

part of the operation).

These actions are without

the authority and without

the permission of the city


These actions are a

With holidays coming, try to support local business

Xavier Ward


It’s the time of year

when everything

moves invariably

quickly. Now that the fall

solstice has come and

passed, we might as well

press fast forward to 2018,

because that’s probably

what it will feel like by the

time we get there.

Rosh Hashanah, Yom

Kippur, Halloween, Thanksgiving,

Hanukkah, Christmas

and there are probably a

few missing here.

While the spirit of these

holidays is often different

from the consumerist commercialization,

there’s still

the aspect of gift giving

with a lot of them.


From Page 11

direct attack on the HP

taxpayers and the intentional

destruction of

a valuable community


If the City of Highland

Park had leased the

country club to any operator

other than the park

district and that tenant

operated as has the park

district, the City, in its

exercise of due diligence,

would have (and should

have) terminated the lease

and sued for damages on

behalf of the taxpaying


In my opinion, with

Gift-giving is great, it

shows people you care

enough think about them

in such a busy time.

Most cultures and religions

have a time of year

or holiday where you give

gifts. Those gifts have to

come from somewhere,

and your choice of where

they come from can really

make a difference in the

local community.

Sure, things such as popular

video games or movies

may not be available at local

retailers (or perhaps they

are!) but other, more crafty

boutique gifts found at local

establishments not only support

local businesses but are

often more thoughtful gifts.

When you support a

local business, you’re not

helping a executive get a

third home or car. Not that

there’s anything wrong

with finding commercial

success and financial

prosperity, but what you do

by supporting local businesses

is you help a family

put food on the table. You

help someone pay their

reasonable thought, plans,

and attention, the Highland

Park Country Club could

be profitable in a reasonable

amount of time, but

not with the Park District

leasing it.

Terminating the lease

with the park district will

financially benefit all taxpayers

in Highland Park,

will preserve a valuable

community and area asset

and will be the right thing

to do.

mortgage through practicing

their craft. Maybe, by

extension, you also help

a kid or two get their own

holiday gifts.

Entrepreneurs have a

tough go, especially with the

business-barring regulations

the state puts in place. Often

entrepreneurs are novelties

in their own communities

rather than a staple, which is

really a shame.

Most people are guilty

of it. Why support a local

coffee shop when there’s

a large coffee chain and

retailer on every corner?

That sense of familiarity

and consistency is comforting

and you almost always

know what you’re getting.

However, that sense

of familiarity and confidence

in the product will

likely be found at a local

establishment, too, you just

have to look for it.

If you’d like to find a

way to support local businesses

for the holidays but

don’t know where to start,

here are a few tips:

If you don’t plan on

go figure



making your whole

holiday meal from scratch

(which there is no shame

in doing), consider going

to a local establishment for

your needs. Look to a local

baker bread or other such

items. If you’re the carnivorous

type, go to a local

butcher for your meats.

Not only will you support

a local business, but the

butcher may be able to

give you suggestions for

a tastier cut. Looking for

beer? Try a local brewery.

No matter how you swing

it, local businesses benefit

everyone by stimulating the

local economy and hopefully

driving job growth.

Unfortunately, big box

stores are often able to

undercut the prices of local

establishments, but often

the quality of the product

suffers as well.

If you can’t afford to frequent

local retailers, that’s

okay. If you can, however,

both that business and the

local economy will likely

appreciate your contribution.

Art show touts affordable, artisan crafts

Hilary Anderson

Freelance Reporter

Hold a craft fair and

they will come.

They did for the Highwood

Starving Artists

Show held last weekend,

Sept. 23-24 along Green

Bay Road in Highwood,

despite the heat.

More than 100 juried

artists displayed original

works—everything from

paintings, jewelry, glass,

ceramics, clothing and

other wearable art—all

under $100. While some

came to showcase new

items, other artists were

there to sell the remainder

of their inventory.

Friends Joyce Brodsky,

Lincolnwood, and Ruth

Anne Field, Skokie, call

themselves craft fair aficionados.

“We always go to craft

Community, tradition front and center at The Left Bank

Martin Carlino

Contributing Editor

In the restaurant industry,

change is often inevitable.

But, for more than

50 years, Lake Forest’s

The Left Bank has stood

the test of time.

Since 1966, The Left

Bank has been dishing out

its classic — all-American,

feel-good comfort food —

for the same price.

After taking ownership

of the restaurant in October

2015, longtime Lake

Bluff resident Randy

Earls knew that preserving

the storied history of

The Left Bank for residents

just like himself was

a top priority.

“I’ve been eating here

since 1970,” Earls said.

“My goal is to keep it open

and keep making a chili

cheese dog that I ate when

I was 7 years old. ... This

is a little niche hole in the

wall that is cool for what it

is. That’s what we want to

keep it.”

Classic Americana decor

hangs on the walls that

are painted with the same

vibrant, green coloring.

The original menu board

still hangs in the upperleft-hand

corner of the restaurant.

One of the restaurant’s

most intricate spots, a back

room tucked behind the

small kitchen area, is one

of the only spaces that has

experienced minor change.

“You use to have to get

invited to go in the back

room,” Earls said.

The room remains

largely unchanged, as the

same quirky memorabilia,

instruments and countless

pictures still fill the space,

which is now open to everyone.

Earls enjoys the weekly

encounters with other

longtime residents and

customers who grew up

cherishing The Left Bank

just like he did.

“For me, it’s one of the

neatest parts,” Earls said.

“The community is what

made this place and that’s

what will keep it going.”

Earls has continued to

build on that cherished

relationship by keeping

the restaurant active in the


22nd Century Media

staff visited The Left Bank

to try some of the classic

recipes that have kept residents

coming back since

the 1960s, as well as a

couple of newer additions

to the menu.

We dove right in, starting

with The Left Bank’s

signature menu item: the

Not-So-Sloppy Joe.

To prepare the fan-favorite

dish, a fresh, specially

crisped and steamed kaiser

roll is cut open and generously

filled with a secret,

50-year-old chili recipe,

which was passed down to

Earls when he took over.

Onions, a flavorful cheese

sauce and two pickles typically

complete the meal

for diners. For $5.99, the

hearty serving is plenty to

please nearly any diner’s


Next up was the chili

cheese dog ($3.99), another

dish utilizing the signature

Not-So-Sloppy Joe.

Earls shared that the

chili cheese dog is a hit

dog cart to community

If you’re looking for a

more traditional, Chicagostyle

still has you covered.

One of the newer items

on the menu, the Vienna

beef hot dog ($3.29), is

loaded with all the classics

of any Chicago dog. Mustard,

relish, tomatoes, sport

peppers and two sliced

The Not-So-Sloppy Joe ($5.99), which is topped with

a flavorful cheese sauce, cascades out of its specially

crisped and steamed kaiser roll. The recipe is more

than 50 years old and is one of many features that still

remain from The Left Bank’s previous owners. Erin

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Jose Reyes

Jose Reyes is a varsity crosscountry

runner for Highland


How did you start


When I was in eighth

grade I ran track for

another school and I

ended up having a lot of

success. I broke five minutes

in a mile; I assumed

breaking five minutes

in a mile as an eighth

grader meant something.

I was going to be a soccer

player, but fell in love

with running.

What’s your favorite


I have to say the guys.

Being with the guys, running

with the guys, even

a normal bike ride with

the guys. I’ve done lots

of sports before and this

team is different. At the

end of the day, as long

as you’re enjoying it and

having a good time is

what matters.

What’s the hardest


I have to say the hardest

part is being mentally

strong. When you’re running

cross-country, every

cross-country runner

knows running will hurt.

Staying mentally strong

is definitely the best thing

you can do. Will the pain

get the best of you? Just

run. The trick is to not

mind the pain.

Any plans to continue

after high school?

I really want to run in

college, I’m not excited

to leave high school because

I know that college

is way different. Running

in college is something

I’m really looking into.

Is there a runner you

really look up to?

Grant Fisher [Stanford

University], he graduated

a year before I was a

freshman. Just the way he

handles things.

Where’s your favorite

place to eat in the


Noodles and Company

in Deerfield. It’s a ritual

for the team to go there

before meets.

If you could have

dinner with three

famous people, living

or dead, who would

it be?

Chuck Norris, Alan

Webb, Morgan Freeman.

What’s the one

place you’ve always

wanted to visit but

never have?

England, they play a lot

of soccer over there and

prior to running I was a

really good soccer player.

What movie character

most reminds you of


Jesse Owens in the

Race movie. Despite

people not believing in

him, he rises up. A lot of

people have not expected

a lot of me since my

sophomore year because

of my injury.

What’s one thing,

outside of running,

that you’re

passionate about?

My other passion outside

of running has to be

photography. I love

photography because

of the way it captures

daily life. I first started

getting into photography

when my older brother

Juan bought his first

camera. We would

always shoot around and

I would sometimes get

sick of it, but with time

I ended up not minding

it and actually enjoying

it more. As the years

went on I even created a

photography website and

social media profile for

myself. It’s my second

passion because the art

of taking pictures can

be mastered by anyone

as long as they continue

shooting pictures and

going outside and

exploring the world.

Youth Tennis

HP seventh grader wins USTA tournament

Erin Redmond, Sports Editor

When Benny Winer won his first

tournament, his family wasn’t there

to witness it.

But that’s how he wanted it.

The Northwood Junior High

School seventh grader won the Boys’

12 Singles Division End of Summer

Open Single Day Showdown at Deer

Creek Courts in Highland Park Aug.

26th, after knocking off four competitors

in the United States Tennis

Association-sanctioned event. But

things almost went dramatically


Winer fell behind early in his

first match and found himself in a

2-1 hole. Seeing his son’s frustration,

his father, Todd, thought it

might be best to let him play without

the pressure of parental eyes


And it turns out that’s exactly

what Benny needed.

“When I came back, he was sitting

in my chair and he said ‘yeah, I

won 6-3,’” Todd said with a laugh.

“... Later my wife, Robin, showed

up to watch — I had to do something

— and he decided maybe it

would be a better idea if she didn’t

watch him either.”

Benny went on to win his next three

matches by scores of 6-2, 6-0 and 6-2

in the finals. The latter, he said, was

the toughest as he had to fight his way

back from an early deficit.

“It felt pretty good. It was my

first tournament win from a USTA

tournament, so it was pretty cool

[to win],” Benny said. “The later

rounds got harder ... I was just

telling myself if I play my best

and do what I know I’m supposed

to do and what my coaches say,

then I’ll be able to hit my shot

and win.”

It was a big accomplishment for

the Highland Park resident, who

had only won tournaments through

his club, Racquet Club of Lake

Bluff, prior to this win. The feat

is even bigger, he said, as he only

began playing the sport about two

years ago.

“Neither of us — my wife or I

— saw him win,” a chuckling Todd

said. “I was really shocked. Not that

I doubt his abilities, but he’s never

won a tournament before. He’s only

been playing a couple years. When

he told me, I was just so excited for

him and so proud of him.”

Benny recently made the decision

to make tennis his main sport, forgoing

playing for the Park District

of Highland Park’s travel baseball

team in an effort to accomplish his

goal of making varsity when he enters

high school in two years.

In the meantime, he said he’ll

continue practicing and competing

as much as he can.

“We’re trying to look for as

Benny Winer of Highland Park,

won the Boys’ 12 Singles Division

End of Summer Open Single Day

Showdown Aug. 26, at Deer Creek

Courts in Highland Park photo


many tournaments as we can,”

he said. “Almost everyday we

search through the USTA website

to see if there are any tournaments

soon that I would be able to

register for.”

leading only 17-7 at the

half. The win sets up a big

game against St. Rita this

Friday in Chicago.

2. Glenbrook South

The Titans

bounced back from

their loss to Barrington

by running all over Niles

North, racking up 296

rushing yards in the win.

Jack Jerfita had 111 yards

and a touchdown, while

Savontae Gardner had 105

yards and a score to lead

the way.

3. New Trier

The Trevians offense

exploded for

52 points in the win over

Niles West. Quarterback

Carson Ochsenhirt made

his second start of his career

and opened up the

playbook, getting players

like Brian Sitzer into the

fold. Sitzer finished with

three scores in the win.

4. Highland Park

After starting the

season 0-3, the Giants

have won two in a

row and both in convincing

fashion. It seems as if

the season has turned itself

around and the team is

aiming for another shot at

the playoffs.

5. Glenbrook North

The Spartans

have been struggling

since losing their

starting quarterback to

an injury in the second

week of the season. GBN

played without 15 players

against Maine West

and gave no word whether

they’ll be back for this

week’s game.

“We’re not going to focus

on who our competitors

are. It will be about being

able to successfully play

the course we’re on.”

All six Lake Forest golfers

on its blue team shot

under an 80, which led to

the hosts winning the 16-

team invite with a 296.

“It’s definitely nice

when everyone on the

team can shoot low scores

like that,” Lake Forest’s

Jed Thomas said. “Depth

is really important and can

be the difference between

being a state championship

team and not being

one. Our coach stresses

the last four holes shooting

even or better so when we

do that, it usually means a

strong round.”

Thomas led the way,

tying for second with a

1-over par 73 and had a big

reason for his success.

“I switched my putter,”

Thomas said. “Because of

that I putted really well.

I started slow shooting

two holes but I shot 1-under

I started my journey doing hair in 2004 when I began

cosmetology school at Pivot Point International.

During that time I also worked at a skin care studio

as a consultant and makeup artist. After I graduated

cosmetology school, I continued my journey with

more schooling to expand my knowledge and learn

more skills. I also had the amazing opportunity to go

to Italy and take classes in Milan.

I graduated in 2006 and obtained my second

license for hair. I still wanted more training, more

knowledge, so I set my sights on a salon that had a

training program. After a lengthy interview process,

in February of 2007 I began my career at the salon

of my dreams, Pascal pour Elle, and have been here

every since. I quickly worked my way through the

assistant apprenticeship program and earned the

title I strived for, Stylist, in November of that year.

I have been a licensed cosmetologist since 2005, a

licensed barber since 2006 and currently specialize

in Keratin Complex Treatments to smooth and

defrizz hair. My goal is to make my clients feel

comfortable and beautiful. The best part of my day

is finishing a clients hair, turning the chair towards

the mirror, and seeing a big smile on their face...my

goal accomplished. Great hair doesn’t have to be

complicated,find the beauty in simplicity.

Bloom fills in for injured Brincks in Giants win

Todd Marver

Freelance Reporter

Highland Park junior

running back Jared Bloom,

who started in place of injured

Ryan Brincks, didn’t

waste any time letting his

presence be known in the

Giants’ 27-14 win at Vernon

Hills on Friday, Sept. 22.

On Highland Park’s (2-3,

1-0 CSL North) first series

of the game, Bloom had a

37-yard touchdown run to

put the Giants up 7-0 with

9:48 left in the first quarter.

That drive featured three

Bloom runs. He opened

the drive with a 3-yard run

followed by a 13-yard run

before the touchdown run.

“I was just trying to

fill the role I was given,”

Bloom said. “We’ve got a

great O-line to run behind

and they’re coming out every

game hard. So I’ve just

got to run behind them and

follow my holes and follow

my leads.”

Bloom also had a 15-

yard touchdown run to give

Highland Park a 27-7 lead

with 5:29 left in the third

quarter. That touchdown

run was set up by senior

linebacker Nick Heilizer’s

interception, which gave

Highland Park possession

at Vernon Hills’ 18-

yard line. Bloom then had

a 3-yard run before his

touchdown run. He rushed

for 126 yards on 22 carries

in the game.

“I thought Jared Bloom

had a fantastic game,”

Highland Park coach Joe

Horeni said. “I thought our

offensive line played really

good especially in the first

half. To be a good football

team, you’ve got to be able

to run the ball. I thought

Jared Bloom did a hell of

a job. He really showed

his toughness tonight. He

squared his shoulders and

he was a downhill runner

and did a good job.”

Highland Park junior

wide receiver Giancarlo

Volpentesta also had two

touchdowns. Highland

Park senior quarterback

John Sakos (5-of-11, 109

yards, 1 interception) threw

a 5-yard touchdown pass

to Volpentesta to extend

Highland Park’s lead to

14-0 with 6:01 left in the

first quarter.

Volpentesta also caught

a screen pass from Sakos

and went 69 yards to the

endzone after stiff arming

defenders and breaking

tackles to extend Highland

Park’s lead to 21-0 t in the

second quarter. Volpentesta

had three catches for 86

yards in the game.

“We’ve been practicing

that play all week, that

screen pass,” Volpentesta

said. “It was really repetitive.

When it came up and I

heard the play, I knew it was

going to be big right when I

caught the ball. I gave a stiff

arm and I broke free.”

“GC’s catch was really

good,” Horeni said. “It was

a screen pass and he broke

two or three tackles and

then took it to the house. I

thought that was fantastic.”

Vernon Hills quarterback

Derek Jarrell threw a

7-yard touchdown pass to

Jack Himel to cut Highland

Park’s lead to 21-7

with 2:28 left in the first

half. Jarrell also threw an

18-yard touchdown pass

to Luke Perlin to cut Highland

Park’s lead to 27-14

with 1:20 left in the game.

Vernon Hills outscored

Highland Park 14-6 in the

final 33 minutes of the

game. The Giants padded

their lead early jumped out

to a quick 21-0 lead within

the first 15 minutes of play.

Highland Park scored a

touchdown in three of its

first four possessions, but

only found the end zone

once more for the remainder

of the game. Horeni

would have liked to see

more consistency from his


“We’ve just got to find

ways to punch it in on offense,”

Horeni said. “We

had some situations where

we turn the ball over on

a dumb interception, we

have some false start penalties

and we go three and

out. We can’t have that.”

Although Highland Park

got outscored the rest of the

game, Volpentesta felt the

quick 21-0 lead was a big

boost for the team.

“Huge confidence

booster,” Volpentesta said.

“We for sure had the momentum.

It gave everyone

confidence. Everyone was

having a great time. When

we play with that looseness

and swagger and we’re

having fun, we can’t be


Highland Park is on a

two-game winning streak

after opening the season

with three straight losses

against tough competition.

Highland Park’s losses all

came to teams with winning

records: Libertyville

(3-2), Lakes (5-0) and

Hersey (4-1). Highland

Park next faces Glenbrook

North on Thursday, Sept.

28, at Wolters Field.

“The first three games

prepared us for our conference

schedule and last

week’s game,” Horeni said.

“I think it’s prepared us

physically. I think the last

two weeks we’ve been the

more physical team. We’re

going to have to continue

that. That’s what we pride

ourselves on is being a

physical team and that’s

what we’ve got to do.”

The Giants players agreed.

“Those first three weeks

were a little rough, but it

for sure made us a lot hungrier

and made us want to

get those wins a lot more,”

Volpentesta said. “So then

Spartans needed others to

midfielders Sahil Modi

and Matt Metzger and junior

midfielder Max Marquez

answered the call in

GBN’s 4-0 win at Highland

Park on Saturday, Sept. 23.

Despite the loss, Highland

Park coach Blake

Novotny was pleased with

how his team performed

against one of the top teams

in the area. Chicagoland

Soccer ranked GBN No. 8

in the Chicagoland area, as

of its most recent poll on

Sept. 17.

“We had scoring chances

and I think we had some

really good scoring opportunities,”

Novotny said.

“We had things we didn’t

capitalize on. They missed

a few opportunities as well

but then they capitalized on

a few mistakes we made.

I thought on our offensive

end we pushed forward

pretty well when we had


“Here’s a better team in

the area and I think the kids

feel like they hung with

them. Those couple moments

in the game that are

those pinnacle moments we

need to make sure they go

our way.”

Novonty felt the game

was closer than the 4-0 final

score would indicate.

“Despite the scoreboard,

they feel like they played

pretty strong and played a

fairly even game,” he said.

“The scoreboard I think

was a little skewed. That

last PK that they scored

wasn’t really a PK. Their

coach even looked at me

like, ‘Why did they call

that?’ That makes it 3-0.

Their second goal was

just a mental error on our

keeper’s part. So I think

our kids are looking at this

as a 2-0 or 2-1 type of score

that it should have been. So

they’re taking the positive

out of that.”

Novotny singled out the

play of junior midfielder

Joey Schwartz in the game.

“Joey Schwartz worked

hard today,” Novotny said.

“He swung the ball from

side to side pretty well today.

“I got the ball and dribbled

said. “I didn’t have the

of the game to extend its

when we got that goal we
