12 | January 25, 2018 | The Northbrook tower news News Briefs Northbrook nonprofit helps donate nearly 500k pounds of chicken Hunger Resource Network, an all-volunteer, local non profit organization dedicated to the alleviation of hunger, recently became aware that an anonymous donor wished to give away a large quantity of boneless, skinless chicken. The amount, 462,640 pounds, was large enough that distributing it to the small soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters that comprise the bulk of the nonprofit’s recipient agency list was not feasible, given the time constraint to move all of the product in a short period of time. Faced with the potential loss of this donation, Dan Jariabka, president and founder of Hunger Resource Network, reached out to The Salvation Army Central Territory. They were delighted to accept this donation and as a result of Jariabka’s work, 462,640 pounds of 89.7 percent organic, boneless, skinless chicken will be distributed to 11 Midwest states. The distributions will be made to: Grand Rapids, Mich., St. Louis, Kansas City, Mo., Minneapolis, Omaha, Neb., Detroit, Indianapolis and Chicago. This donation represents the protein portion of 1,830,560 meals.

Further investigation into the shooting revealed that a third party, a U.S. Navy member, co-worker of VanLandingham’s and Highland Park resident, witnessed the incident and, out of fear for his life, drove his Land Rover into the shooter, Ryan Zike, 33, just after Zike shot himself in the head, according to a press release from the LFPD. The witness is a 37-yearold man who arrived at VanLandingham’s apartment in the 200 block of E. Deerpath Road on the morning of Jan. 3 to drive her to work. The release also reveals that Zike, of Louisville, Ky., and VanLandingham lived together for a period of time in VanLandingham’s apartment. In October of 2017, Zike moved out of VanLandingham’s apartment and moved back in with his family in Louisville. Zike, who allegedly shot VanLandingham, 27, multiple times in the incident, reportedly drove to Illinois and stayed overnight at an unknown location on Jan. 2. The next morning, Zike approached VanLandingham as she was leaving her apartment for work just prior to 6:20 a.m., Zike and VanLandingham engaged in a brief conversation in the parking area of the apartment complex, when Zike produced a semi-automatic pistol and shot her several times. After shooting Van- Landingham, Zike shot and killed himself. The witness was reportedly parked in a position where his headlights illuminated VanLandingham and Zike during the initial conversation and the shooting. The witness told investigators he felt Zike was going to turn the gun on him; therefore, he made the decision to hit the man with his vehicle. Reporting by Alyssa Groh, Contributing Editor.

Full story at THE GLENVIEW LANTERN Residents make valentines for local veterans It’s undeniable that military service is ingrained in Glenview’s culture and history. As recently as 1995, the Glenview Naval Air Station prepared soldiers to fight for their country. As young men, astronaut Neil Armstrong and former presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush learned their commitment to service at the air base. Throughout the last two decades, the training sites and landing strips became restaurants and condos. The name changed, as well. It’s now called The Glen. Glenview’s history of service, however, has not been lost on the younger generations. Nearly 15 young residents — and a few older ones — turned out to make Valentine’s Day cards for veterans Jan. 12 at the Glenview Public Library. Using construction paper, scissors, stickers and markers, participants created more than 50 cards with messages of love and gratitude. Oliver Wolf, 11, was the first one in the room and stayed for more than an hour. With a look of concentration displayed on his face, he crafted about 10 cards. Most of them read, “Thank you for your service.” “I thought I could just do something for all those people who served our country,” Wolf said. “If they didn’t exist, I probably wouldn’t be the person I am now.” Reporting by Jeremy Turley, Freelance Reporter.
