Highland Park City Council

Karger center developer identified

Xavier Ward, Editor

Highland Park’s Karger

Center, historically the recreation

center leased by the

Park District of Highland

Park, will close and be redeveloped

no sooner than

June 2019.

The Highland Park City

Council chose Albion Jacobs

Highland Park as the

preferred buyer at its Monday,

Jan. 8 meeting, and

will purchase the property

for $3.76 million, according

to a press release from

the City of Highland park.

City Council decided at a

May meeting to allow Millennium

Properties to list

the 2.6 acre property for

$3.5 million.

City Manager Ghida

Neukirch confirmed to The

Landmark that Albion Jacobs

did offer more than

the asking price, but it is

unclear why.

This is the largest development

of its sort in Highland

Park, the next closest

being McGovern House,

a Central Avenue modern

housing development with

73 units, Neukirch said.

According to the release,

the developer plans to convert

the site into 171 luxury

apart

Should the Highland

Park developer wish to demolish

the property sooner

than June 30, 2019, it must

first obtain permission from

the City to do so, according

to the press release.

“The City will be very

heavily involved,” she said.

She added that the builder

has been in accordance

with the City’s rules and

regulations to this point.

“We received a very

good response to the sale

of this property,” Nuekirch

said. “There is a need for

this type of housing in the

community.”

The City has been in

regular contact with the

tenants of the building: the

Highland Park Community

Nursing School and

Day Care Center, Rythmix

Gymnastics and Unit 14

Theater Company.

Some City staff were

concerned about the future

of the tenants of the building,

but Neukirch said the

City has been working with

all of the tenants to find

new spaces.

The housing the development

will provide — multifamily

residential units

— will provide additional

housing around the Central

Business District near

downtown Highland Park,

Neukirch said.

“Transparency is of utmost

importance to our

City’s operations. This

proposal will undergo careful

consideration and due

diligence as it proceeds

through the public planning,

zoning, and design

review process as required

by the City Code. Upon approval

of the Purchase and

Sale Agreement, the Developer

will begin this public

process and information

on the proposed redevelopment

will be available on

the City’s website,” Neukirch

stated in the press

release.

Highland Park City Council

City of Highland Park

establishes amendment to

sexual harassment policy

Margaret Tazioli

Freelance Reporter

As the culture around

sexual assault and harassment

evolves, so do many

of the institutions that enforce

punitive measures.

The City of Highland

Park is one of those institutions

that takes sexual

harassment very seriously,

Mayor Nancy Rotering

said.

At the Monday, Jan. 8

City Council meeting, a

modified anti-harassment

policy was approved in

order to meet new state

requirements.

Due to new state regulations,

City Manager Ghida

Neukirch said she had

the City’s attorneys take a

look at the existing policy.

“They recommended

some minor updates to

that policy,” Neukirch

said.

The policy Highland

Park has had for many

years included most of the

new state-required provisions

— but not all.

The primary addition

to Highland Park’s policy,

as recommended by

the City’s legal counsel,

Highland Park native takes home Golden Globe

Xavier Ward, Editor

When Highland Park’s

Rachel Brosnahan was

cast in the hit Netflix series

“House of Cards” in 2013,

she told The Landmark

it was “literally a dream

come true.”

Jan. 7 at the Golden

Globe Awards, however,

another accomplishment

was added to the actress’

resume, as she was

awarded the “best performance

by an actress in a

television Series, comedy

or musical” for her role

in “The Marvelous Mrs.

Maisel.”

The series, an Amazon

production, also took

home the award for “best

television series, musical

or comedy.”

“I did always see it in

her,” said Carole Dibo,

the founder of the Actors

Training Center in

Wilmette. Dibo said she

worked with Brosnahan as

recently as fall 2017.

“Like most of my young

actors who make it in this

business, she was very determined,”

she said. “She

was juggling school at

NYU and she was juggling

auditions and callbacks.”

Despite the notion that a

lot of actors and actresses

jump right into major

roles, Brosnahan worked

extremely hard to get to

where she is, Dibo said.

She was part of a number

of small, independent productions

prior to her role in

Attorney General made

one thing abundantly

clear the night of Sunday,

Jan. 14: They will do everything

in their power

to stop President Donald

Trump.

Stopping Trump’s agenda

was a theme throughout

the evening, but other issues

The candidates gathered

forum organized by

an activist group: Action

and The National Organization

Among them, Highland

Park Mayor Nancy

Rotering and 58th District

Representative Scott

Drury, D—Highwood.

According to an email

from the organizer, more

than 200 people registered

to attend.

“Women need to know

they have an advocate

who will stand up for

them, who will talk about

sexual harassment and fix

the laws that currently exempt

certain employers,”

Rotering said in her introductory

statement.

She touted her past as

a victim’s rights advocate

and said as attorney general,

she would continue

to fight for victims of domestic

abuse, immigrants

and would go after serial

predators.

In his introductory

statement, Drury talked

about his past as a federal

prosecutor, and discussed

This addition does not

THE NORTHBROOK TOWER

GBN alum wins Golden

Globe for ‘Big Little Lies’

During the early evening

hours of Jan. 7, Nathan

Ross’ world was moving a

million miles a minute.

Ross, a graduate of

Glenbrook North in 1991,

was prepping for what

he — and the team of the

hit HBO limited series

“Big Little Lies” — hoped

would be another historic

night.

The series headed into

the 75th annual Golden

Globes with six nominations

across four categories.

And by night’s end, it

captured four Globes, including

the award for best

Limited Series or Motion

Picture Made for Television.

To earn the honor, the

show triumphed in a category

loaded with tough

competition, which included

past winner “Fargo.”

Actor Alexander Skarsgard

and actresses Nicole

Kidman and Laura Dern

also captured Globes for

their roles.

“The show has had a

wonderful life of its own

since it came out earlier

in the year,” said Ross as

he reflected on the series’

consummate success. “Everyone

soaked it all in. I

think we’re all very proud

of the show.”

Ross, who has served as

an executive producer on

the successful films “Dallas

Buyers Club,” “Demolition”

and “Wild,” had

already established quite

the name for himself in

the entertainment industry

before teaming up with his

longtime filmmaking partner

Jean-Marc Vallée for

“Big Little Lies.”

THE WILMETTE BEACON

Residential care facility at

Ridge Road approved

In December, the Wilmette

Village Board was

not yet ready to make a

decision on the approval

of Artis Senior Living, a

three-story residential care

facility with 64 units at

333 Ridge Road.

The board made the

decision in its first meeting

of 2018, on Jan. 9, to

approve a planned unit

development preliminary

plan and special use permit

for the construction of the

assisted living residence

that will be dedicated to

the needs of elderly people

with Alzheimer’s disease

and related dementias. The

Plan Commission recommended

approval of the

project prior to the board’s

approval.

At its Dec. 12 meeting,

the Village Board

expressed concerns with

the height of the proposed

building and other requested

relief from zoning requirements.

The board was

also concerned with the

amount of public benefit

being offered in relation to

the relief being requested.

In response to the

board’s concerns, Artis revised

the plan by lowering

the overall building height

by four feet from 48 to 44

feet. The height reduction

was made possible by relocating

the loading dock

from beneath the building.

Artis also no longer

requested relief from the

parking lot perimeter

landscaping requirement

by increasing the east perimeter

landscaping from

three to five feet. In order

to increase the perimeter

landscaping the applicant

revised the guest parking

circulation by making it

angled parking, one-way

southbound. This reduced

the number of guest spaces

from 10 to five spaces.

THE GLENVIEW LANTERN

Projected deficit grows

since last year’s forecast

According to a financial

forecast by the Citizens

Finance Advisory Committee,

a group formed

to provide the Glenview

District 34 Board of Education

with financial guidance,

District 34 may

experience a continued

financial deficit over the

next five years.

During a public hearing

on Jan. 8, the board

learned that the District

might experience a $1.9

million deficit in Fiscal

Year 2019, a $2.3 million

deficit in 2020, a $2.6 million

deficit in 2021 and a

$2 million deficit in 2022

unless reforms are enacted.

These values have

increased since last year’s

forecast.

Previous projections

anticipated the 2019-20

deficit would near $1

million and the 2021-22

deficit would near $2 million.

However, considering

recent increases in

special education tuition

and transportation costs,

among other expenses,

the predicted value has

grown.

Despite the spike, advisory

committee member

Richard Kreutzfeldt explained

that the District

can — and should — introduce

reforms to improve

the trajectory.

“I want to emphasize

that the forecast is a projection

— not a prediction

— of what is going

to happen,” Kreutzfeldt

said. “The work of the

[committee] is to bring

awareness to the potential

outcomes so the board can

evaluate how best to address

these issues.”

The advisory committee

also presented the board

with an alternative forecast,

mapping the potential deficit

in the instance of a twoyear

property tax freeze.

The alternative projection

anticipated a reduction of

$1.5 million in revenue for

the 2020 Fiscal Year.

Chin’s Chop Suey closes,

new restaurant coming

soon

After nearly 20 years

on Vernon Avenue, Chin’s

Chop Suey has closed.

But, the space won’t be

vacant for long.

Landlord Kevin Campbell

is currently working

with new owners who plan

to open another Chinese

food restaurant, called

Shanghai Garden, in the

same spot at 655 Vernon

Ave., Glencoe.

“It has been a Chinese

restaurant since 1964,”

Campbell told The Anchor.

“It was originally

owned by Mr. Chin.

About 20 years ago, he retired

and sold the business

to family members, the

Chens. They maintained

the name and it’s basically

another retirement

situation. They found

another family member

who was interested in

purchasing it.”

The new owners “aren’t

new to the game,” Campbell

said, and they are experienced

in the restaurant

business.

Currently, there is a

sign in the storefront saying

“we will be closed for

three weeks.” Campbell

said, however, it’s going

to be longer than that,

Highland Park Community Foundation appoints new chairwoman, vice chairman

Jessica Cabe

Freelance Reporter

Last month, the Highland

Park Community

Foundation announced the

appointment of two new

leaders who will focus on

growing the foundation’s

endowment to provide

more grant money than

ever to community organizations.

Nancy Mills has been

appointed chairwoman of

the board of directors, and

David Reich was appointed

vice chairman.

“It’s really exciting,”

Mills said. “We’re planning

a lot of great new

things, and I feel like

we’ve entered a new stage

for the foundation, which

set a goal to double the

endowment over the next

few years. That means

we’ll be able to give out

more grants, larger grants

and address more of the

needs of the community.

I’m really looking forward

to working hard toward

that.”

The Highland Park

Community Foundation

was formed in 1992 at the

request of the city to build

and maintain a permanent

endowment fund. The

fund serves to support and

expand the services of social

services, cultural and

educational agencies in

Highland Park and Highwood

by issuing grants

based on the fund’s interest.

Last year, the foundation

issued more than

$180,000 in grants to 35

organizations, six of which

were first-time recipients.

Mills moved to Highland

Park as a 3-year-old

and, aside from a few years

here and there of living

elsewhere, has spent her

entire life in the city. She

said she sought opportunities

to make a difference

locally about 10 years ago

when her children were in

middle school.

“I realized there were

kids going to school with

my kids who were hungry,

and it just struck me

as something that was really

heartbreaking, and I

wanted to get involved and

try to make a difference,”

Mills said. “When I found

the Community Foundation,

I was really excited

about the fact that we have

an endowment that’s there

for perpetuity. And then I

met the people, and I was

very excited to work with

all these lovely people

who care so much about

the community.”

Mills has been on the

board of directors for

about nine years, serving

as both co-chairman on

the communications committee

and as vice chairman

of the board. She is a

long-time marketing team

member of medical supplies

giant Medline, and

she has used her background

in communications

to lead the charge on such

foundation initiatives as

redesigning the logo and

website, instituting a media

plan for print, social

media and outdoor signage

and conceptualizing and

producing the foundation’s

impact report and e-newsletters.

“We’ve really been

working on increasing our

visibility and our impact

in the community,” Mills

said. “I feel like the more

people know about what

the foundation is doing,

the more we can help more

people in the community.

The needs are there,

and they’re growing, and

government funding is

very tight and sometimes

unreliable. So we know

how much local organizations

need support

from us.”

Mills said she’s looking

forward to working with

David Reich, who was appointed

vice chairman of

the board and with whom

she has worked for the past

eight years.

“We were actually classmates

in high school, so

it’ll be fun to work on

a great cause together,”

Mills said.

Reich has served as

the secretary of the board

for the past three years

and served on the executive

committee and grants

committee for the past

four years. He was born

and raised in Highland

Park and is a partner at the

law firm of Lawrence, Kamin,

Saunders & Uhlenhop,

LLC. Reich has also

served on the boards of the

Modestus Bauer Foundation

and the Israel Cancer

Research Fund for more

than 20 years.

Foundation, visit hpcommu

Brosnahan

From Page 4

“House of Cards” and subsequently,

Dibo said.

Brosnahan was one of the

many actors and actresses

who wore black to stand up

to recent allegations of sexual

harassment and assault

in the film industry.

While she now lives

in New York, she still remembers

her North Shore

roots, as she told The

Landmark.

“I had a very suburban

upbringing in Highland

Park,” she said. “What a gift

to be able to live so close

to Chicago. ... I look back

fondly. I had a wonderful

time growing up [there]. I

do travel a lot and I don’t

make it back as much as I’d

like to now. But my family

still lives there; my parents

and my sister are still in

Highland Park.”

While attending Highland

Park High School,

Brosnahan took part in

wrestling, lacrosse and

said she liked snowboarding

as well, but theatre was

what caught her heart.

“I thought I could sing

for a period of time, which

is unfortunate for everyone

who was involved,” Brosnahan

said. “I attempted

to be in a musical. This is

how devastated I was, I can

still remember which one

it was. It was ‘Beauty and

the Beast.’ I auditioned and

ultimately did not get cast,

which was probably the

best situation. But unfortunately

for the (future) productions,

I did do musicals

the next three years.”

Brosnahan also worked

with Carole Dibo through

the Actors Training Center

in Wilmette.

As many high school students

do toward the end of

their high school careers,

they start to narrow down

what they want to do, and

there was only one thing on

Brosnahan’s mind, she told

The Landmark.

“It wasn’t something

that was acknowledged

to me that way,” she said.

“But I was never interested

in anything else than how I

was with theater. ... But I

did pick it as my ultimate

career. I really only envisioned

doing theater. But

that has obviously grown

and changed and now I

love all the different sides

of it.”

Brosnahan attended

the New York University

Tisch School of Arts, focusing

on theater.

Her role in “House of

Cards” came almost immediately

after graduation,

she said.

From Page 6

ed that he, too, is at odds

with the NRA over gun

legislation he signed in

the past.

The gun violence discussion

grew momentarily

heated when Drury

clashed with Illinois Senator

Kwame Raoul, D—

Chicago, over Raoul’s

2013 negotiation of a

concealed carry bill. Earlier

in his remarks, Drury

said the State will not pass

meaningful gun legislation

unless “people with

spines” take it on.

“I got a spine, because

I have to go home to a

neighborhood, and deal

with my kids having to

deal with gun violence

in my neighborhood. I

have a spine, that’s why

the Illinois Council of

Handgun Violence gave

me the Lincoln Award in

the very year you’re talking

about,” Raoul said

to Drury. “This is an important

issue to me, and I

have a spine.”

Raoul comes from the

Hyde Park neighborhood

in Chicago, and has

served in the Illinois Senate

seat vacated by Barack

Obama in 2004.

While Drury and Raoul

battled on gun violence,

other issues were less divisive

for the bunch.

When discussing police

reform, Rotering pushed

for implementing resources

and metrics to empirically

measure how departments

are performing and

looking at mental health

resources for officers who

have been involved in violent

incidences.

“This has to be a priority,”

she said.

The candidates also

generally agreed on voter

protection. Former federal

prosecutor Aaron Goldstein

discussing polling

place accessibility said,

“why are we voting in

the coldest months of the

year? It doesn’t make any

sense.” He went on to say

politicians need to make

people want to vote.

Chicago attorney Jesse

Ruiz concurred, suggesting

we should adopt some

of the methods used by

other countries such as

stopping the sale of alcohol

on voting days, as his

parents’ home country of

Mexico does.

On the final issue of

marijuana legalization,

the candidates agreed

across the board: legalize

it.

The eight are vying

for the seat presently

filled by Lisa Madigan,

who announced in the

fall she would not seek

reelection.

There are only two Republicans

running, Gary

Grasso, a Hinsdale litigator,

and Erika Harold, a

Harvard-educated Urbana

lawyer, who also was the

winner of the 2003 Miss

America competition.

A Safe Place gives shelter to local domestic violence victims

Submitted by A Safe Place

Two deaths, one critical

injury and one arrest.

Incidents that occurred

last week due to two disputes

involving domestic

violence.

These disputes did not

take place in dangerous

neighborhoods. They

happened in Lake Forest

and Highland Park,

cities ranked number six

and ten respectively on

the Illinois per capita

income list in 2011, according

to a press release

from A Safe Place, a Lake

County domestic violence

shelter.

Domestic violence happens

among all income

levels, ethnic groups and

cultures, ages, faiths and

education levels, the press

release stated.

Contact A Safe Place

Visit www.asafeplaceforhelp.org or call (847) 731-7165.

You can also call the 24-hour Help Line at 1-800-600-

SAFE or (847) 249-4450.

Often, for some people

their social, economic

or cultural background

may make it harder for

them to get help. This

includes victims with

elevated social status,

which may be one of the

greatest barriers preventing

victims from seeking

help.

Victims in affluent communities,

such as Lake

Forest and Highland Park,

could be doctors, lawyers,

judges and business owners,

according to the press

release.

It’s a mistaken belief

that domestic violence

only happens to people in

other communities. They

may be more physically

isolated from their neighbors

or not supported/

believed by family members.

The two deaths in Lake

Forest on Jan. 3 occurred

between a woman and

a man who had ended

their relationship three

months before. The stabbing

in Highland Park

was by a man who shared

a home with the victim,

according to the press

release.

“We don’t know when

they will be opening because

there was a little bit

of a delay with the holidays

and getting the Village staff

together to go over the

items we need to address

to get the restaurant up and

running,” Campbell said.

As of last week, the Village

had met with the owners,

but they had not submitted

plans for a building

permit, said Nathan Parch,

the Village’s planning and

development administrator.

“We met with the owners

recently regarding their

preparations of the plans,”

Parch said. “They are making

some upgrades to the

kitchen area in order to meet

current building code requirements,

but nothing has

been submitted as of now.”

1978 was from Lake Forest,”

A Safe Place CEO

Pat Davenport said in the

press release. “It is time

to bust the misconception

that violence does not

happen in quiet or affluent

communities. It is time to

recognize that domestic

violence is a global disease

and it is important

that we all stand up, say

something, and support

each other, no matter who

we are or where we come

from.”

Since 1978, A Safe

Place has been Lake

County’s sole provider

of services exclusively

addressing domestic violence,

serving individuals

throughout the Chicagoland

area including Cook,

McHenry and Kenosha

counties, according to the

press release.

The organization’s programs

and services for

victims of domestic violence

and their children,

include crisis support,

housing, legal advocacy,

counseling, community

outreach and education

to prevent future abuse,

according to the press release.

Last year, the shelter

entered 2,997 Orders of

Protection for victims of

domestic violence into the

court system and served

over 14,000 individuals

that came from each and

every community, according

to the press release.

Since its founding 40

years ago, it has assisted

victims from every community.

“Some just call for information

or with a question.

Some come seeking

counseling for themselves

or their children. Others

need immediate, lifesaving

help, and shelter,”

Davenport stated in the

press release. “We provide

the most comprehensive

domestic violence services

in Chicago, the North

Shore area and communities

in Wisconsin.”

A Safe Place has facilities

and resources

throughout the county. At

the Lake County Courthouse,

staff assists victims

with filing orders of protection

and advocate for

and encourage those who

choose to testify, according

to the press release.

In Lake County, a 35-

bed emergency shelter

and 30 safe scattered

houses in the southern

part of the county, including

Deerfield and

Winnetka, provide safe

spaces, food, clothing,

and community resources.

In Zion, the 40 apartment

housing facility has onsite

counseling, advocacy,

and life skills assistance.

In Mundelein, the Family

Visitation Center provides

supervised visitations and

monitored custody exchanges.

In Lake Forest,

Lake Bluff, Lake Zurich,

Round Lake, Waukegan,

and Gurnee, satellite support

groups in English and

Spanish help victims and

children share their experiences

and process their

emotions. And at middle

and high schools throughout

the county, their staff

educates teens on healthy

relationships.

Because of the comprehensive

range of lifesaving

programs and services

at A Safe Place, 94% of

the survivors who left the

emergency shelter last

year did not go back to

their abusers, as of their

six-month follow up.

Even though, in the United

States, on average, a

domestic violence victim

will return to their abuser

7-8 times before either

making it to lasting safety,

or dying.

from the editor

Effecting real change starts locally

Xavier Ward

xavier@hplandmark.com

In its current state,

national politics can be

tiresome and daunting.

The constant press

coverage of the President

makes notable headlines

easier to glance over and

the constant stream of

chaos leaves many less

surprised at every mishap.

For those of you who

feel tired, and are sick

of the constant political

predicament, fear not,

because real change is not

a trickle-down system.

Like most things, effecting

real change starts at a

local level.

Local politics are often

written off as unimportant,

but that couldn’t be farther

from the truth.

School boards, city

councils and other local

administrative bodies impact

the lives of residents

far more than national

politics.

These administrative

bodies shape local life, but

only with the help of the

constituents they serve.

If you don’t know how

to get involved but want

to, there’s easy ways to

do so.

1. Go to City Council

meetings

Going to the Highland

Park City Council or

Highwood City Council

is an easy way to communicate

directly with local

lawmakers. There’s generally

a period for public

comment, which allows

people to get up and say

what they want. Highland

Park’s City Council meets

the second and fourth

Monday of every month,

while Highwood’s meets

the first and third Tuesday

of each month. If you

are unable to make it to

the meetings but want to

vent your frustrations or

have a suggestion, email

a council member, their

contact information is

available on their respective

websites.

2. Contact your

representative

Representatives are

supposed to, well, do

exactly what the label

infers: represent the

people’s interests. If you

live in Highland Park,

your U.S. representative

is Brad Schneider, you

can reach him through his

webiste, schneider.house.

gov, or by calling his

Washington D.C. number,

(202) 225-4835. Equally

as important, your state

representative Scott Drury

can be found at 425 Sheridan

Road, Highwood, or

at (847) 681-8580.

3. Get in touch with local

press

I don’t mean to overstate

our importance, but

it’s part of our job to go

to those meetings and tell

you what’s happening in

your community. If there’s

something that warrants

coverage, or something

you think the local press is

missing, contact us. We’re

generally receptive to

criticism and suggestions,

so let us know if there’s

something that we need

to do better. Often times,

lack of coverage of an issue

stems from us simply

not knowing.

go figure

8

4. Get out and vote

This is, perhaps, the

most important part of

politics in general. Voting

is a precious right that

we have, and we need to

make sure to utilize it. Just

remember, your employer

has to let you vote if

you give express notice.

Additionally, if you give

advanced notice your pay

cannot be deducted for

taking time to vote, according

to the AFL-CIO.

It’s also worth noting that

these requirements only

apply to employees who

do not have two consecutive

hours outside of work

to vote. So, there’s really

no excuse not to head to

your polling place when

the time comes.

Art Fest Boot Camp teaches the business side of art

Hilary Anderson

Freelance Reporter

There are many things

for artisans to consider before

selling at an art festival.

That is the message

Highland Park’s Amy Amdur

gave more than 130

prospective artisans at an

Art Fest Boot Camp Saturday,

Jan. 13 at the Highland

Park Country Club.

Amdur, president and

CEO of Amdur Productions,

provided a detailed

overview of the steps necessary

to attract buyers

regardless of whether the

artist is selling a painting,

a sculpture, jewelry, ceramics,

wood carvings, clothing

or photography.

“I have been doing this

for 35 years and want to

give tips to those who

would like to exhibit and

sell at an art festival, regardless

of experience doing

so.” Amdur said.

The first set is determining

the right festival.

“Which art festival is

good for you and where?”

Amdur asked. “Would

your artistic work be better

in a country craft show

or a fine arts one? Indoor

or outdoor? What are the

fees to enter? Do you have

to travel and what are the

costs if so?”

Knowing the jury deadline

is important, too, she

said.

“Most art festivals now

are juried and applications

are done online,” Amdur

said.”

She provided information

about presenting photo’s

of one’s work — the

grouping and background

color.

Amdur suggested having

a professional photographer

take photos, which

could enhance the quality

of one’s presentation.

“Show work that is distinctively

yours, something

that displays your originality,

what kinds of materials

you used,” Amdur said.

“Use bold colors rather

than pastels, whites, grays

In Memoriam

Gertrude DeVries

Gertrude DeVries (nee

Siffert), 81, of Highland

Park, died in Las Vegas

surrounded by her children

Jan. 5. She was born on

July 26, 1934 in Highland

Park to Christian and Frieda

(Bierloin) Siffert. She

will be remembered for

her deep faith in God and

her love and dedication to

her family. She is survived

by three loving children,

Deborah Peirson (Curtis),

Sandra Ayars (Daniel)

and John DeVries; grandchildren,

Jennifer Perison,

Trevor Peirson, Kimberly

(Jason) Holliday, Kelli

Ayars, Bryan Ayars and

Ami (Jason) Harrington;

great-grandson, Indigo

Ayars. The DeVries family

would like to extend

our gratitude to the staff of

Nathan Adelson Hospice

for their compassionate

care in helping Gertie pass

through her final days with

dignity and grace. DeVries

was predeceased by Bob,

her loving husband of 60

years, and by her sister

Caroline, “Jo”, Davis.

Ruth Labow

Ruth Labow (nee Glass),

97, formerly of West Rogers

Park and Highwood,

died Jan. 10. When Lillian

Ruth Glass was born,

she lived in Highwood,

where her parents, Charles

and Bessie, and ran a dry

goods store. Later, the

family moved to Waukegan.

She met and married

Harry Labow in 1953.

The couple was very active

in the Jewish community

and extremely strong

supporters of the State

of Israel. For years, they

would meet Israeli sailors

as they docked in Chicago,

and treated them to homemade

kosher meals and

entertainment. Their many

friends knew Labow for

her hospitality, but what

they may not have realized

is the role she played as

caregiver, first for her parents,

then for her motherin-law,

and finally her husband.

She was a generous

soul, pleasant and kind,

never complaining. She

was very proud of her job

at the Chicago advertising

office of the New York

Times, where she worked

for years. The Times, as

well as the major Chicago

papers, were a staple at her

home. When she retired in

1993, the Times brought

her and Harry to New

York to honor her. Labow

worked to stay up to date.

She ran a current events

club and a book club. She

loved word puzzles. She

was an avid participant in

her community, always

signing up for trips and

classes. She was a regular

exerciser, loved to sing,

and walked a great deal.

With dementia and other

maladies, she lost her ability

to read, as well as to

walk. Amazingly, Labow

never complained. The

family would like to thank

the staffs of Glenview Terrace

and Belmont Village

for their excellent care.

or blacks. Do not use patterns

for backgrounds and

crop out what does not pertain

to the artwork.”

Amdur said potential art

festival entrants also are

scored on the appearance

of their booths.

Using the right kind of

price tags was another topic.

“Presentation in the actual

booth is important for

sales,” Amdur said. “Have

plenty of business cards at

the show and keep an address

books. You will use

this to further promote

yourself.”

Next was information

about what to have in the

booth.

“Have a photo of you

making one of your items,”

Amdur suggested. “Do not

overlook hanging a good

sign with your name on it.”

A higher chair to sit in is

important because it is easier

to talk with customers.

At the top of her long

list was sunscreen, water or

Gatorade, a flashlight, rain

or cold weather wear.

Amdur then discussed

what the artist should wear

on the day of the festival

“Wear business-like

clothing,” she said. “Solid

colors, no patterns. Wear a

name tag.”

There were tips on what

to say to visitors who

walked by one’s booth,

how to respond to those

who may be interested in

the artwork but say an item

is too expensive.

Amdur talked about

various ways of promoting

one’s work and gave a preshow

timeline.

The two hours were full

of tips and those who attended

appreciated the information.

Highland Park’s Linda

Lubell came to find more

information about entering

larger art festivals.

“I started making jewelry

out of beach glass that my

husband collects as he walks

along the lake,” Lubell said.

“I sell my jewelry at small

shows but would like to get

into bigger ones. Amdur

gave me insight about how

to display and photograph

my jewelry.”

Campus

MOPS stands for Mothers

of Preschoolers, and

by preschoolers we mean

kiddos from birth through

kindergarten. We know it’s

a little confusing so let’s

just stick with “MOPS.”

We are moms, and we

believe that better moms

make a better world. At

every meeting there will

be a speaker or video that

gives practical tools and

insight into the specific

things that are important

to you. MOPS meets 9-11

a.m. on the first and third

Friday of the month. Email

Contributing Editor

For Vade Sankar, the

owner of Be Market

in Lake Bluff, gaining

knowledge about healthy

foods and different ways

to prepare them to make

your taste buds ask for

more began 10 years ago.

After watching his

mother lose her life to

cancer, and struggling to

understand why we get

cancer and why we get

sick, Sankar turned to research.

He spent 10 years

researching ways to prevent

sickness and heal

our bodies. His research

taught him the answer to

living a healthier life, and

it all started with changing

his diet.

Ten years ago Sankar

thought he was living a

healthy lifestyle, but after

his diet change he lost a

lot of weight and found he

was getting sick less often.

Be Market

11 a.m. - 10 p.m.

Saturday

11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Sunday

After seeing the positive

effects a healthy diet

can have, Sankar decided

to share it with others at

a variety of workshops.

Eventually his products

became popular among

those who knew about it,

which prompted him to

open Be Market in October

2017.

“Be Market is a place

for people to try different

healthy foods and see

what it is like,” Sankar

said. “I feel like there is

this misconception that

healthy food is boring,

and I like to have fun with

healthy food.”

As Sankar began crafting

his menu he named the

restaurant after a theme he

felt like the establishment

was taking.

“When we were designing

our menu [it] really

[represented] ourselves.

We are being our version

of healthy, we are not following

your conventional

model of a restaurant.

A lot of things are made

from scratch,” Sankar

said. “Be Market is really

allowing you to be yourself

and to be creative.”

To ease customers into

Be Market’s healthy food

options, Sankar chose to

start with a smaller menu.

“At the end of the day

this business is built on a

relationship with our customers,

connecting with

them and serving their

needs. We started with a

small menu to see what

they are looking for,” Sankar

said.

We need vendors for the

Be Market offers readyto-go

food options and

also has a full kitchen for

those who decide to dine

in.

Be Market sources its

food from as many local

vendors as possible and

orders certified organic

produce.

“Not everything is 100

percent organic, but we

are striving for really

high-quality produce,”

Sankar said.

The menu offers seasonal

options that will

change frequently, but

Sankar said customer favorites

will be around

yearlong.

A group of 22nd Century

Media editors stopped

by to see what Be Market

was all about, and we

tried the roasted butternut

squash salad ($12). This

salad is a larger portion

perfect for splitting with

someone. The salad includes

a maple mustard

dressing, which is on the

sweeter side, and is prepared

with mixed greens,

quinoa, pecans, carrots

and broccoli.

Next up was my personal

favorite, the avocado

toast ($9). The avocado

toast is made with

sprouted grain bread (a

gluten-free bread is also

an option) topped with avocado

mashed, thin slices

of avocado, pea sprouts,

black seed, cilantro and

hot sauce vinaigrette. The

light sauce adds a bit of

extra flavor to the avocado

toast without overpowering

the dish.

Among healthy food

options such as salads,

we began to explore some

“gourmet comfort food

options.”

“When we think comfort

food we think fatty

and unhealthy, but it

doesn’t have to be that

way,” Sankar said. “We

have gourmet comfort

food with a healthy version.”

The Buffalo chicken pizza ($14 for 8 inch, $19 for 12

inch) is loaded with vegan chicken strips, arugula,

buffalo chick peas, red pepper and hummus.

One of Be Market’s signature dishes is its avocado

toast ($9), which is prepared with avocado mash topped

with thin slices of avocado, pea sprouts, black seed,

cilantro and a hot sauce vinaigrette.

With “gourmet comfort

food” in mind, we tried

Be Market’s healthy spin

on pizzas.

We dove into the Buffalo

chicken pizza (8 inches

for $14 or 12 inches for

$19). The pizza is made

with vegan chicken strips,

arugula, Buffalo chick

peas, red pepper and hummus.

This pizza is made

with a thicker crust, which

helps accommodate all of

the ingredients.

The unique thing about

the pizzas at Be Market

is they are made with no

cheese, but you’d hardly

notice the lack of dairy.

After experiencing what

a healthy pizza tastes like,

we wanted more and tried

the spinach artichoke pizza

(8 inches for $13 or 12

inches for $18). This pizza

is prepared with spinach,

artichoke hearts, garlic

and white sauce. The

artichokes on this pizza

are a nice substitute for

meat and you can taste the

freshness in every bite.

Be Market’s menu does

not stop there. It also offers

a variety of smoothies

and detox juices. Vade

said they are so popular he

can hardly keep them on

the shelf. Be Market also

offers wraps, sandwiches,

soups and more. Looking

forward, Vade says

customers can expect an

Italian sandwich, lasagna,

take-home sauces and

more types of healthy pizzas

customers have come

to love.

How did you get

started playing

basketball?

I started playing basketball

in a house league in

second grade. I was not

good the first year and I

almost quit but then my

dad said I should try it

for another year. I did and

I haven’t stopped playing

since.

Why do you love

playing basketball?

I love my team. I love the

sport more than anything

... it’s just really fun.

What is the most

challenging part of the

sport?

I think the most challenging

part about the sport is

when you’re not playing

your best and your mental

game gets down. It’s hard

for you to get your mental

game back up again and

playing well.

What is a goal you

have for the rest of

the season?

Probably to have

less turnovers.

What has been a

memorable moment

for you thus far?

This year I participated

in the school Stunts,

which is a student-written

musical. It was really fun

and it was fun to experience

something nonsports

related.

If you were a super

hero, what would your

super power be?

Probably to fly because if

I could fly whenever I get

into awkward situation I

could just go away.

If you could have

dinner with any

professional athlete,

who would you

choose?

Probably Stephen Curry

because I think he seems

like a funny person

through social media and

he is a good basketball

player. I feel like I could

learn a lot from him.

Brittany Kapa/22nd Century Media

What is your go-to

drink at Starbucks?

During the winter it’s a

caramel brulee latte. In

the summer it used to be

a iced peach lemonade,

but they discontinued

the peach syrup. I’m still

pretty upset about that.

Do you play any

other sports besides

basketball?

Yeah, I play soccer.

Do you think playing

basketball helps you

with soccer?

I think that soccer helps

me with basketball because

in soccer you use

your feet a lot more so it

helps me balance more.

Giants hold lead at home to topple Spartans

David Jaffe

Freelance Reporter

Through the first two

and a half quarters, Highland

Park’s zone defense

did a terrific job containing

Glenbrook North.

Slowly, and quietly, the

Spartans chipped away at

the host Giants’ 14-point

advantage and got within

one in the fourth quarter.

With an experienced

squad, the Giants (8-6

overall) responded, finishing

the game with a 10-4

spurt of their own to get

the 47-40 conference win

Jan. 9. Highland Park improves

to 4-0 in the conference

while Glenbrook

North falls to 2-2.

“We have five senior

starters,” Highland Park’s

Ziv Tal said. “We’ve been

through games like this

and know what it’s like.

When they got momentum,

we didn’t flinch. We

know how to overcome

adversity.

“We were eight of 10

from the line in the fourth

quarter,” Highland Park

coach Paul Harris said.

“We made some big plays

late. We got some loose

balls and took a huge

charge. When things got

tough, we got tougher.”

With under five minutes

to play and leading just 37-

36, the Giants’ Noah Shutan

stepped up, he buried

two free throws and Tyler

Gussis’ added a layup. The

Giants pulled ahead, making

it 41-36. GBN cut the

lead again to 42-40 with

52 seconds left with Max

Knebelkamp’s layup and

Sean Merrigan’s two foul

shots in between a split at

the line from Tal. But Andrew

Natinsky knocked

down a pair at the line,

then took that big charge

Daniel Michelon drives to the net for a layup Jan. 9 in a game at home against Glenbrook North. David Kraus/22nd Century Media

with 35 seconds remaining.

Shutan sealed the

game with three more free

throws.

“Ethan Goldberg made

some nice hustle plays and

deflections for us late,”

Harris said. “Andrew hit

two big free throws and

then took that charge. This

was similar to when they

played here last year and

we did a good job finishing

in both games.”

In the first half, Tal was

dominant scoring 17 of his

24 points. He scored nine

straight Giants’ points and

11 of their last 15 first half

points along with layups

from Gussis and Daniel

Michelon helping the Giants

increase a 14-10 advantage

to 27-15.

“I hit two or three threes

in the first quarter,” Tal

said. “That was really big

because my shot hadn’t

been going well a lot of

this year. Once that happened

I knew they were

going to close much harder

on me so I knew I was going

to have to get some fast

break layups and attack the

basket.”

“Ziv definitely energized

us,” Harris said. “He does

such a great job attacking.

Everything he does makes

things easier for his team,

which is the sign of a great

player.”

The Giants increased the

lead to 33-19 before GBN

went on a 17-4 run with six

points from Kellen Witherell,

four from Knebelkamp

and Evan Barnes’ three

leading the way.

Until that run, the Giants’

defense was making

life difficult for the Spartans.

“It speaks to our coaches,”

Tal said. “They know

which shooters we needed

to focus on. Number

three (Barnes) is one of

their better shooters so we

didn’t give him open looks

and took away their top

shooters.”

“GBN’s a tough matchup

because they have great

outside shooting as well as

size,” Harris said. “Most

teams have one clear

strength that allows you

to take away the interior if

they’re big or focus on the

perimeter if they’re good

shooters. They’re one of

the more balanced teams

we’ve faced but I was happy

with how we defended

them.”

GBN (10-5, 2-2) did

a good job fighting back

after early offensive struggles.

But coach Dave Weber

felt that they rushed

things down the stretch.

“We had possessions

at the end where we had

a chance to take control

but we hurt ourselves,”

Weber said. “Once we

cut it to two or three, we

started getting impatient.

We played with patience

getting back into the game

but we turned the ball over

and had a charge that hurt

us. They’re a well-coached

team with a lot of seniors

and we didn’t realize how

well they cut to the basket.

So we were a step behind

defending that.”

Giants score first, often against Scouts Gold

Brittany Kapa

Sport Editor

Before winter break, the

Giants were struggling to

win games.

The rest clearly served

the team well and in 2018

they have stayed perfect

through their first two

games.

The team’s most recent

win came Jan. 10 when

they travelled to Lake Forest

College to take on the

Scouts Gold team.

The first half of the period

was quiet, but it didn’t

take Highland Park (27-11-

7) long to find its stride and

dominate game play, winning,

11-2. The Scouts (1-

17) had a hard time on the

breakout and maintaining

neutral zone control when

they did.

“Playing a bigger, faster,

stronger team is tough –

on both ends of the ice,”

Scouts Gold coach John

Murphy said. “It starts in

our end, if you can’t get

the puck out you can’t do

anything.”

The Giants’ strong

forechecking hindered

the Scouts from getting

the puck out of the zone,

and the Giants’ Sebastian

Thomas took advantage.

He fired a shot from the

point and teammate Grant

Silver tipped the puck past

the Scouts’ John Walsh for

the team’s first goal of the

game. With 7 minutes, 10

seconds left to play in the

period the scoring didn’t

stop there.

Three goals later, the Giants

held a 4-0 lead heading

into the second period.

Sam Frazer ended and

began the first and second

period, respectively, with a

goal. His goal in the second

period was unassisted.

The Scouts played their

game though, and eventually

captain Peter Haggerty

found the back of

the net with 4:12 left to

play in the second. Trailing

6-1, Haggerty, assisted

by Tate Dahlgren and Oliver

Pasquesi, got the score

marginally closer but the

Giants didn’t ease up on

the pressure.

Dylan Abt scored his

second of the game 30

seconds later and Michael

Gallo recorded his second

goal of the game 30 seconds

after Abt’s. Highland

Park led 8-1 to start the

third.

With a more than comfortable

lead, the Giants

switched up positioning

and defenseman played

forward and vice versa.

The switch didn’t slow the

team.

“It’s a fine line because

you don’t want to get into

bad habits but also you

don’t want to get anybody

injured,” Highland Park

coach Sean Freeman said.

“It’s still a varsity game

and a physical game.”

Gallo scored his third

goal of the game in the

third, and celebrated his

hat trick. Shortly after that

Ryan Genender scored,

unassisted. Genender added

a second goal, and the

team’s last, just three minutes

later.

The Scouts Gold team

was put in an awkward

situation at the beginning

of the season during

the Illinois High School

Hockey League’s seeding

round. Having early

success against teams, the

Gold team was moved into

the highest division of the

North Central Division.

“The seeding round, at

the beginning of the year,

we were playing some of

the weaker teams so we

were winning games like

that 11-1, 10-0,” Murphy

said. “We got pushed into

this higher bracket. I essentially

have an all (junior

varsity) team.”

Score aside, Murphy

has seen improvement in

his team and he said much

faster than if they were in

the lower-level division.

“I think it is good for the

boys,” he said. “Anytime

you’re in a situation where

you’re playing above your

talent level you’re getting

better. Whether or not they

realize it right now, they

battled hard and it’s been a

long season.”

The Giants delivered

several hard hits late in the

third period, but despite

their physical style of play

the Scouts held their composure

with the rival team.

“This is a big rivalry,”

Murphy said. “There are

often shenanigans, so I

was just proud of the guys

for staying out of it for the

most part. There weren’t

a lot of penalties, it was a

pretty clean game.”

The Giants had 12 minutes

of penalties compared

to the Scouts six, all calls

were for roughing.

“We can’t just sit there

and let them get back in

the game,” Abt said about

playing hard.

Gallo knows that going

easy on a team isn’t a valid

option. Vying for a topspot

in the division, the

Giants need to play their

game, every game.

and improve their

conference record.

Brittany Kapa, Sports Editor

On two separate occasions

Highland Park had a

double-digit lead, but the

Glenbrook North came

back both times.

After Highland Park (8-

11, 3-2) went on a 10-0 run

to start the first half of the

first quarter, Glenbrook

North hunkered down and

started to chip away at the

Giants’ lead. The Spartans

held the Giants to gaining

only three points the rest

of the quarter, while they

added eight of their own.

Ultimately, the Spartans’

two pushes weren’t

enough to overcome the

Giants Jan. 9 at home as

the team fell 43-38.

“Fluegge always tells

us that games are roller

coasters,” GBN point

guard Morgan Paull (16

points) said. “She always

says that and she said that

at half time ... We wanted

to beat them, they’re a big

rival.”

The Giants led 20-15

going into the half, in the

third the visiting team

went on a 12-4 tear. Highland

Park took a full time

out with 2 minutes, 35

seconds left to play in the

quarter and held a 32-19

lead.

With only a limited

amount of time remaining,

Fluegge encouraged

her team to get aggressive

on defense.

“You’re down by a lot

and you have to take more

risks,” Fluegge said to the

team. “I don’t think they

would have felt comfortable

taking those risks

had Sam (Stoneburner),

Faith (Kim) and Morgan

(Paull) on that help side

not played strong and gotten

tips.”

The Spartans other

challenge was the Giants’

Addie Budnik. They held

her to only scoring five

points for the entire game.

“When Fluegge said

man [coverage] I knew

that I would have to cover

Addie the whole game,”

Paull said. “She is so

good, she is amazing. I

think she’s only a sophomore,

so I think that’s

unreal for her to be that

good.”

The Spartans changed

strategy and it worked,

for a time, and forced the

Giants to change strategy

late in the fourth.

Kim (15) knocked

down the first shot of the

fourth, and it was evident

that those risks were paying

off. Paull scored the

next seven points and Kim

added another two, which

cut down the Giants lead

to only four.

“Basically we had

Sammi (Stoneburner)

face guard [Sydney Ignoffo]

all over the place,

and then we had Nicole

(Amen), our other guard,

just putting as much pressure

on [Zoe Hayman]

as possible with Morgan

(Paull) putting as much

pressure on [Addie Budnik]

as possible,” Fluegge

said about containing the

Giants’ offense during the

fourth.

Highland Park’s Ignoffo

(19) gave her team a little

more breathing room with

two more points, but GBN

wasn’t done. Kim made

one at the line and another

two from the field.

With just a minute left

HP went to man-to-man

defense to try and eliminate

an potential looks

at the basket for GBN,

Highland Park coach Jolie

Bechtel said.

“I think when (GBN)

put that pressure on a little

bit, we started to panic

a little bit,” Bechtel said.

“We threw the ball away

a couple of times and then

they started to get a little

bit nervous.”

With three sophomores

on the court, Halle

Abrams, Zoe Hayman and

Budnik, Bechtel said that

perhaps the team’s fourthquarter

problems stemmed

from never having been in

that type of game situation

before.

“I think that comes with

time,” she add.

Hayman, who contributed

a 3-point shot during

the game, has seen very

in the season, but with

to an injured hand, she has

“It was kind of scary at

“That’s not a situation

that they’re in all that often,

so even though we did let

the lead get away a little

bit I felt a really good the

fact that we didn’t completely

our composure enough to

Bechtel said.
