Women take defense into their own hands

Amanda Stoll, Assistant Editor

More than ever, women

are realizing the need to be

able to defend themselves in

dangerous situations. That’s

where One Light Self-Defense

comes in.

The annual self-defense

class is taught by One Light

and hosted by State Rep.

Margo McDermed’s office.

This year, there was a

larger turnout than last year,

with an estimated 70 women

signing up for the free class

on Thursday, April 26.

Jeanette Brock, an instructor

with One Light Self-

Defense, said their program

was much the same as in

past years. The training has

shown to be effective, easy

to teach and easy for women

to remember — save one

tricky technique involving a

cross arm wrist grab.

“We have a variation in

one of the techniques that

we are excited about that is

easier to use,” Brock said.

“Most of the talking points

we’ve found have been valid,

and the other techniques

are solid. People have found

them effective, so we’re

happy about that.”

The cross-arm wrist grab

is one of the hardest types

of holds to get out of, Brock

said, but by teaching women

at the class how to use the

positions of their hips and elbows

in combination with a

quick movement they should

be better prepared for that

type of situation.

The main goal of the class

is always to first teach women

how to stay out of situations

that could become dangerous.

By following those

tips, Brock said they may be

able to prevent themselves

from ever finding themselves

in a situation required

the use of their physical

skills.

As a woman who is

5-foot-3-inches and 110

pounds, Brock is a model of

how even a woman of small

stature can be a fierce fighter

if a situation were to arise.

“Anything that we teach,

I have experience trying to

do the techniques to at least

300-pound guys and bigger,”

she said. “If I can’t do

it fast and effectively, we

don’t teach it.”

She said in addition to

smaller women, the training

Green energy to make up half of county government's electricity

Submitted by Will County

Board

The Will County Board

voted this week in favor of

green energy by increasing

the amount of purchased

renewable electricity to 50

percent. The county currently

purchases 12 percent

of its energy from renewable

sources. Twelve percent is

the minimum level set by the

Illinois General Assembly.

“Will County has been

a leader in going green for

years,” said County Board

Speaker Jim Moustis (R-

Frankfort). “From the green

roof on the county building

to our LEED certified

courthouse to the recycling

of methane gas at our landfill,

we’ve always looked for

innovative ways to be more

environmentally friendly.”

Moustis also said that the

county is looking into generating

solar power for county-owned

buildings including

the installation of solar

panels at the new courthouse

in Joliet. This will help the

county become more selfsufficient,

he said.

Some board members also

hope that going green will

also attract more businesses

that are environmentally

conscientious.

“If we want to attract

new companies, we have to

be forward thinking at the

county level,” said county

board member Mike Fricilone

(R-Homer Glen).

“Renewable energy is important

to all of the new and

innovative companies in the

country. Will County can

also set the example for existing

businesses that want

to modernize their energy

consumption. Being a green

leader will be attractive to

new companies.”

The county will purchase

their energy through Constellation

Energy, which is a

wholly owned subsidiary of

Exelon Corporation which

operates nuclear power

plants in Will County. The

county received bids from

competing electricity providers

and Constellation

came in as the lowest responsible

bidder. Constellation

and the county will

enter a three year agreement

which will lock in the electricity

rate beginning in July

of 2018. The three-year contract

is expected to save the

county money on electricity

bills.

“It’s important for the

county to look forward on

these kinds of issues,” said

minority leader Herb Brooks

(D-Joliet). “Being more environmentally

friendly is

good for the health of our

constituents and we hope it

will be good for business.”

Some county board members

were quick to remind

their colleagues that nuclear

energy has long played a

role in Will County, employing

many residents at the

Braidwood Plant and that

traditional power supplies

are still important providing

jobs and economic stimulation

to the region.

is effective at building the

confidence of older women,

who might feel that their

strength will hinder them

from being able to protect

themselves.

But, that is not the case

either.

“So many assaults now

are happening to older people,

too,” Brock said. “Many

older people are thinking

there’s nothing that they can

do about it, but there’s still

something they can do to

keep themselves safe.”

Quick and effective placement

of hits that will allow

a person a window of opportunity

to escape are at the

core of One Light’s teaching

curriculum, but the heart of

their organization remains

with victims of assault and

human trafficking.

“I’m very excited about

the hearts of people now because

they’re not only coming

for themselves,” Brock

said of class participants,

many of whom donate to the

cause in lieu of a class fee.

“[It’s] almost like a pay-itforward

and helping victims

who have been in situations.

I’ve been very encouraged

by that.”

“There’s so many things

that are happening now,

and people are not only caring

about themselves, but

they’re making a difference

in the lives of other people.”

Kathy Hilton, chief of

staff at State Representative

Margo McDermed’s office,

said the class has been

increasingly popular in the

last few years. Last year in

particular, they did not have

enough space to accommodate

all the people who

wanted to participate and

had to turn people away.

Seeing the need, Hilton

said they have started looking

for locations that can accommodate

up to 100 people

so that does not happen

again.

The chairs in the sanctuary

at Lincolnway Christian

Church in New Lenox

were pushed aside as women

broke into groups and

learned how to effectively

get an attacker to let go of

them. Whether that involved

being grabbed from behind,

by the neck, or by the wrist,

the class covered a variety of

different situations.

For those who took the basic

class, McDermed’s office

will be hosting an advanced

class on May 8. The class is

only open to those who took

the most recent basic class.

For those who missed last

week’s basic class, there

will be another offering on

August 23. The location of

that class is still to be determined,

but those interested

in signing up can do so by

emailing Hilton at kathy.ilh

s37th@gmail.com.

Hilton said she has taken

the class multiple times in

the past, and observes the

class when she is not participating.

“I found the class actually

very empowering and

confidence building,” she

said. “Don’t panic, buy time.

A class like this is just very

good for getting that simple

concept in people’s heads.”

Knockerball sweeps Frankfort Park District off its feet — literally

Rochelle McAuliffe

Freelance Reporter

In most sports, playerto-player

contact is forbidden.

A few sports, such as

football and hockey, allow

players to make contact,

but the contact isn’t

the driving goal of the

game.

But for one emerging

sport, contact is what gets

the game going. That sport:

Knockerball.

Participants of all ages

were able to “get in the

bubble” the morning of Saturday,

April 28, at Commissioners

Park, as the Frankfort

Park District teamed up

with Knockerball Chicago

to bring the fun to the suburbs.

Maurice Sullivan is the

recreation supervisor of

athletic programs for the

Frankfort Park District, and

he’s always on the hunt for

new and innovative events

and programs like Knockerball

to bring to the youth of

Frankfort.

“I always want to see

people participate who

don’t always go for particular

sports, but they

still want recreational opportunities

to get out and

be active,” said Sullivan.

After being introduced

to Knockerball, Sullivan

said it was a no-brainer to

bring it to Frankfort; all

it took was getting it in

the Parks and Recreation

brochure.

After seeing the event in

the spring brochure, Jessica

Keith, of Frankfort,

thought Knockerball was a

fun way for her two boys to

blow off some energy on a

Saturday morning.

“This was super cool

and fun," Keith said.

"This wasn’t your normal

[game] like soccer — it

was very unique. It really

stood out from all the

rest.”

Knockerball is described

as “almost defying gravity.”

It involves a single-chamber

inflatable sphere that

covers the upper body and

is worn “backpack style.”

The sphere or “bubble” allows

the user to roll and

flip without stressing the

body. Knockerball’s claim

to fame is typically bubble

soccer, but depending on

the group, players can also

enjoy games such as sharks

and minnows and king of

the rink.

The sport originated in

Norway in 2011, and by

2014, it had reached New

Zealand and the United

States. Awareness and popularity

for bubble soccer

exploded almost overnight

in 2015 after John Anthony

Radosta, league commissioner

of the U.S.-based

National Association of

Bubble Soccer, appeared

on the hit ABC TV show

“Shark Tank” to secure a

deal with the show's panel

of investors.

Although the pitch was

unsuccessful to secure

funding from the show,

the appearance helped to

garner the attention of participants

nationwide, where

there are now over 300

affiliates.

“Just about everyone has

seen the videos on social

media, so it’s really grown

in popularity over the last

few years,” said Corie Caruso

of Knockerball Chicago.

“We just want to give

people a chance in the bubble...

Kids, teens and adults

absolutely love it. This is

a nice opportunity for the

kids to come out and try it

out, because Knockerball

is for anyone who likes to

have fun.”

Frankfort charges toward

his opponents in a fierce

game of sharks and

minnows.

Development for the replacement of a chiller at Dr. Julian

Rogus School.

• The board opted to table a vote an approval of an intercom

replacement at Hilda Walker School.

Frankfort.

The Summit Hill School

District 161 Board of Education

voted in favor of a sales

tax resolution involving school

facilities funding during the

board’s April 25 regular meeting.

Specifically, the resolution

directs the Will County regional

superintendent of schools to

certify to Will County election

the Nov. 6 election regarding

the imposition of a retailers’

occupation tax and a service

occupation tax, which would

be exclusively used to fund

school facilities in the county.

Board member Stacey

Borgens said D161 could potentially

receive $1.4 million

through the tax.

“Considering the current climate

that we’re in, this could

be very helpful to the district,”

she said.

However, board president

Rich Marron expressed opposition

to the initiative.

“I believe that the district is

in a healthy financial position,”

he said. “I believe we have

reserves in excess of $20 million.

We do not have buildings

that are in immediate need of

repair. We have the funds to do

that.”

The resolution passed by

a 4-3 vote, with Marron and

board members George Leonard

and David Faber casting

the dissenting votes.

Marron also took thanked

officers with the Will County

Sheriff's Office for their assistance

after a threatening graffiti

message was discovered

at Summit Hill Junior High

School on April 19.

"You're going to hear great

things about police, but when

you see it firsthand and you

see the interaction and you get

the responsiveness that I know

(D161 Superintendent Barb

Rains) and our district had

over this week, our principals

and our district as a whole, it

was fantastic," Marron said.

In an email sent April 24,

Rains said the district met

with Will County Sheriff Lt.

Edward Hayes and members

of the Will County juvenile

crimes unit on April 23 to follow

up on the incident.

"At the meeting, the District

shared information with Will

County officers that was collected,"

Rains wrote. "Afterwards,

Lt. Hayes confirmed

that the graffiti incident at

SHJH is not substantiated,

meaning it is not supported

by evidence. He said if Will

County finds probable cause

during its criminal investigation

of the incident, Will

County will press for a felony

disorderly conduct charge."

She noted the district will

continue to speak with students

to gain additional information

and disciplinary consequences

up to and including expulsion

could be sought if warranted.

lifelong learning. Congratulations

on the success of

your grant application, and

best wishes for a successful

project.”

District 157-C Superintendent

of Schools Maura Zinni

stated, “Mrs. Raynes has a

passion to ignite the love

of reading into every student

who passes through our

school libraries. She seeks

out interesting and engaging

reading material to reach

every student’s interest. Mrs.

Raynes is a living example

our district’s motto, ‘A Tradition

of Excellence.’”

Lincoln-Way students compete and medal in State SkillsUSA contest

Submitted by Lincoln-Way

Community High School

District 210

From April 19 through

April 21, 17 Lincoln-Way

students competed in the

State SkillsUSA contest

hosted in Springfield, Ill.

Contestants earned their right

to compete through taking

qualification exams. Only the

top scoring contestants were

invited to participate at the

state level.

“To be in the top, students

must be well versed on content

knowledge in order to

pass the qualification exams,”

said Daymon Gast, the

Lincoln-Way Central SkillsUSA

advisor. “Once they arrive

at state, they must apply

their knowledge. The student

who is well-rounded in his

education has the competitive

advantage.”

SkillsUSA’s mission is

to empower its members to

become world-class workers,

leaders and responsible

American citizens. SkillsU-

alone.

Competitors from Lincoln-

Way Central competed in

four categories, both individually

and as groups. The

Knight competitors and their

categories were Jonas McKenna

(welding sculpture);

Codey Underwood, Andy

Bueshel and Wyatt Grady

(welding fabrication); Juan

Manrique, Austin Zaker and

Samuel Huish (welding fabrication);

Arley Coleman (job

skills demonstration) and Reece

Wirtz (automotive technology).

Competitors from Lincoln-

Way East competed in welding

fabrication. The Griffin

group competitors included

Mario Brcik, Noah Antoniazzi

and Devlin Lynch.

Competitors from Lincoln-

Way West competed in three

categories, both individually

and as groups. The Warrior

competitors and their categories

were Greg Dziubek (automotive

technology); Josh

Davis (electrical) and Anthony

Grande, Matisse Dodaro-

Mol and Quinn Burke (welding

fabrication).

After much practice and

guidance throughout the

year, the Lincoln-Way East

team of Brcik, Antoniazzi

and Lynch placed third in

state for welding fabrication.

“I couldn’t have been

prouder of all my welding

guys who made the sacrifices

to come to the state contest

to compete,” said Gast, who

oversees both the Central

and East welding shops. The

2018 competition marks the

first time Lincoln-Way students

have competed at the

state level under Gast’s guidance.

“Winning third place in

state feels wonderful,” he

said.

For their third-place finish,

Brcik, Antoniazzi and Lynch

each won $7,500 in college

scholarships; Ohio Technical

College in Cleveland, Ohio,

awarded each of the Griffins

$5,000 and Lincoln College

of Technology in Melrose

Park, Ill. awarded the students

$2,500. Additionally,

Brcik, Antoniazzi and Lynch

each secured prizes that included

welding equipment,

welding technical textbooks

and project resource guides.

The weekend was made

extra special by additional

activities in which all Lincoln-Way

students were able

to partake. The entire group

received a guided tour of

Springfield; students visited

the state capitol building with

both the House and the Senate

in session. Other highlights

included a social dance

and delegate sessions.

“I met a lot of nice people

there, including connections

I will be able to use in my

future,” said senior Knight

Jonas McKenna.

SkillsUSA aims to decrease

the gap in the workforce.

“Students enrolled in Career

and Technical Education

courses can feel very proud

to be in these classes at this

time in our nation’s history,”

Gast said. “Students have no

idea until they come to the

state contest just how much

support there is for them.”

Hickory Creek Middle School holds spring induction ceremony

Submitted by Frankfort

School District 157-C

On April 26, 2018, Hickory

Creek Middle School

hosted its third annual induction

ceremony for the

National Junior Honor Society

(NJHS.) Eighty students

from sixth, seventh and

eighth grade were inducted.

The National Junior Honor

Society was established in

1929 to recognize outstanding

middle level students.

Today, it is estimated that

more than one million students

participate in official

Honor Society activities.

NHS and NJHS chapters are

found in all 50 states, the

District of Columbia, Puerto

Rico, many U.S. territories,

and Canada. Chapter membership

not only recognizes

students for their accomplishments,

but challenges

them to develop further

through active involvement

in school activities and community

service.

To be considered for NJHS

membership, Hickory Creek

students were required to

complete an application

and an essay. Being a good

student is only one part of

the application process and

having a high grade point

average does not guarantee

membership. More than just

an honor roll, NJHS serves

to honor those students who

have demonstrated excellence

in the areas of scholarship,

service, leadership,

character, and citizenship.

A Hickory Creek Middle

School Faculty Council assisted

in assessing each applicant’s

leadership and

character traits observed in

the classroom setting, as

well as in extra-curricular

activities.

The Induction Ceremony

began with a processional of

the inductees, followed by

the National Anthem sung

by student Madison Rogers.

Hickory Creek Principal

William Seidelmann welcomed

parents and students.

On behalf of the District

157-C Board of Education,

Gina Briese congratulated

Lincoln-Way Central off of

Schoolhouse Road.

“The greenhouse is an important

component within

our Transition Program,”

said teacher Josh Kreske.

“The students enjoy working

in there weekly; they’re able

to build and improve upon

their ability to work with

others, as well as practice

problem solving, communication,

self-advocacy and

their soft skills for employment.”

The Lincoln-Way Transition

Program is a district

program designed to meet

the individual needs of students

with disabilities. This

program provides daily living,

social/emotional, and

vocational skill development

for the students.

Eighty students at Hickory Creek Middle School were

inducted into the National Junior Honor Society on April 26.

Maura Zinni

Sean Dore, Colin Ovando,

Madison Rogers, Sarah

Kyra Peters, Manuel Tsoukatos

and Rylee Hanlon.

They conducted a candlelighting

ceremony highlighting

the five standards of the

NJHS. The inductees took

a pledge to uphold the five

standards and were awarded

NJHS certificates and

As a component of the program,

the greenhouse project

offers the students a functional,

hands-on opportunity

to experience and develop

meaningful work skills in a

and hands-on activities. Students

began planning for the

pins by Briese, Seidelmann,

Hickory Creek Assistant

Principal Alexandra Oreluk

and the program’s faculty

advisors, Renée Grady and

Stacy Rutovic.

Seidelmann congratulated

the parents for their

remarkable young people

and thanked the program’s

faculty advisors for their efforts.

“It is an honor to induct 80

members tonight who have

demonstrated excellence in

scholarship, service, leadership,

character and citizenship,”

he told the students.

“This is much more than an

honor roll, merit award or

a job well done. You ask

good questions and know

the importance of not quitting,

fulfilling your commitments

and that it is okay to

make mistakes if you learn

from them. You share the

belief that a few passionate

to five days a week to give a

highly polished performance

of “Fiddler on the Roof.”

Rehearsals include learning

the songs, dialogue, choreography,

and blocking. There

were several days of auditions

in January to select the

cast members and auditions

were open to all students at

Hickory Creek. Around 100

students have various roles

in the cast for this year’s

production. “Fiddler on the

Roof” is a fun show that features

songs for soloists such

as “If I Were a Rich Man”

and “Far From the Home I

Love,” as well as full group

pieces such as “Tradition,”

“Anatevka,” and “Sunrise,

Sunset.” HCMS’s “Fiddler

on the Roof” will be performed

for audiences on May

18, May 19, and May 20.

The fiddler is the title character

of Hickory Creek Middle

School’s spring musical,

directed by Mrs. Leslie Walton

and Mrs. Cindy Heath.

“Fiddler on the Roof,” with

music written by Jerry Bock

and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick,

highlights the life of a

poor Jewish milkman named

Tevye who clings tightly

to his traditions. As things

change in his small village

of Anatevka, Tevye struggles

to hold on, especially when

faced with a choice: his beliefs

and traditions, or accepting

his daughter’s choices.

Ultimately, his beliefs and

traditions win, which is a

clear look into how seriously

Tevye takes his beliefs. The

fiddler in this musical’s title is

the representation of the lives

of Tevye and the other Jewish

villagers. As times change

in Anatevka, it becomes difficult

for the villagers to hold

onto their traditions and live

a normal life, just as it is for

the fiddler to play a simple

tune and still maintain his

balance on the roof.

HCMS’s spring musical

is important because it gives

students a chance to show

their musical talent through

singing, dancing, and acting.

The musical program accepts

all kinds of students, whether

they be shy or outgoing. Being

in the musical is like being

on a large team because

everyone has to work together

in order for the scenes and

songs to fit together. Many

hours of hard work and dedication

by the students, the

directors, and parent volunteers

will guarantee that this

show is a big hit. As a cast

member in “Fiddler on the

Roof,” I recommend the joining

the musical next year to

anyone who wants to be in

a fun activity in which they

can showcase their talent,

and I hope many community

members attend the show and

support the talented and hardworking

musicians at Hickory

Creek Middle School.

District 157-C program sets kindergartners on path to success

Submitted by Frankfort

School District 157-C

An innovative program

in Frankfort School District

157-C welcomes incoming

kindergarten students and

their parents prior to the

beginning of their classes

in the fall. The first session

of “Kindergarten, Here We

Come!” was held on April

3. Additional sessions will

be held on May 1 and May

22, 2018 from 1:15 - 2 p.m.,

with the same session repeated

in the evening from 6

- 6:45 p.m. at Grand Prairie

Elementary School at 10480

West Nebraska Street in

Frankfort.

During each session, the

incoming kindergartners and

their parents are welcomed

into Grand Prairie to see the

building and meet some of

the staff and teachers. The

children will experience activities

with teachers, while

the parents take a tour of the

school and hear pertinent information

to help them prepare

for next year. The goal

is to help orient the children

to staff and the building

while giving parents information

about how to help

support their child at home

as they get ready to send

them off to school in August.

The program was implemented

when Principal Eileen

Nelson joined the staff

seven years ago. She had

used it in her previous district

with great success.

She stated, “Kindergarten

is such an exciting time for

parents and children. It’s

also a time of anxiety; stepping

into the unknown.The

original brainstorm was how

to answer parents’ questions

about what to expect and

ease their fears, while giving

them tools to help prepare

their child throughout the

summer for that big day in

August.”

She found a side benefit of

the program was the children

acclimating to the building.

Incoming kindergarten students engaged in activities in small groups while parents met

with administrators during “Kindergarten Here We Come!” at Grand Prairie Elementary

School. Photo submitted

She said a few might be tearful

at the first one or two sessions

separating from their

mom, but in August the new

kindergartners are smiling

and waving goodbye.

“The only tears are from

the moms and dads because

the children see familiar

Grand Prairie faces and they

know the building, so they

are ready to come right in

and begin learning,” Nelson

said.

On April 3 the topic for

parents was “Creating Mathematicians.”

On May 2 the

topic will be “Literacy Strategies”

and on May 22 the

topic will be “Growth Mindset/Student

Assessment.”

Each of the three sessions is

different with opportunities

to gain knowledge of Grand

Prairie, kindergarten expectations,

and get questions answered.

Parents may attend

each of these programs since

staff will be covering a different

topic each day. There

is no need to pre-register,

however, school administrators

ask that parents sign in

when they come. While the

parents are attending their

session, the children will be

welcomed by teachers and

staff to enjoy participation in

activities with favorite stories

and nursery rhymes such

as “Pout Pout Fish,” “Ants

Go Marching” and “The Itsy

Bitsy Spider.”

District 157-C Superintendent

of Schools Maura Zinni

stated, “I commend Mrs.

Nelson for creating this program

to make the transition

for the kindergarten students

go smoothly. I think it is

such a remarkable program,

both for the students and the

families. It takes a lot of time

to implement a program like

this, but that is the beauty

of it – it is best for the students.”

Nelson agreed, stating, “It

is a wonderful, purposeful

program that I hope continues

long after I’m gone.”

Additional opportunities

for the kindergarteners at

Grand Prairie will include

activities at the school for

parents and students over

the summer and a chance

to check out books to take

home from the library. In

addition, a kindergarten curriculum

night and a “Meet

and Greet” will be held prior

to the first day of the new

school year.

All children who will be

five years of age on or before

Sept. 1, 2018 are eligible for

entry into kindergarten in the

fall. Kindergarten round-up

and registration were conducted

in early March, however,

incoming kindergarten

students or students new to

the district in any grade may

register by making an appointment

with the District

Office at (815) 469-5922.

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

Hollywood Casino

Amphitheatre seeks change

to liquor license

An amendment to Tinley

Park’s Class J liquor license

could allow for additional

liquor sales at one of the Village’s

biggest attractions.

Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre

and Mayor Jake

Vandenberg’s Office have

been in discussions for a

possible amendment to add

“vendor stands in the lawn

area” to section 9a of the

license, which currently allows

for alcoholic beverage

sales in tents, skyboxes, club

rooms and golden boxes at

music theater facilities.

Representatives from

Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre

briefed the Village’s

Administration and Legal

Committee on April 24

about the possibility of constructing

semi-permanent

vendor stands at the top of

the lawn area for the 2018

concert season.

The proposal would not

allow for roaming vendors

or hawkers, as prohibited

by section 17 of the Class J

license, and the amendment

could be reverted back by a

review of the Board of Trustees

after the 2018 season.

Trustee Michael Pannitto

said he was opposed to the

change, stating he thought it

CONTACT

was “more headaches than it’s

worth,” while Trustee Cynthia

Berg expressed support, stating

the Village was losing out

to other concert venues like

Wrigley Field and Northerly

Island, both in Chicago.

The Administrative and

Legal Committee asked Hollywood

Casino Amphitheatre

to submit sketch designs

for the proposed construction,

which would involve

the pouring of concrete pads

and usage of tents, before it

offers a recommendation to

the Board of Trustees. Representatives

said the change

would offer a better customer

experience and cut down

on line times at current concession

stands.

FROM THE ORLAND PARK PRAIRIE

Orland Park woman donates

gift of a lifetime to uncle

Sonya Ceballos Berg was

not worried about going under

the knife.

In the weeks and days

leading up to a donation that

would impact the Orland

Park resident’s life forever,

she was more concerned that

the transplant would somehow

fall through.

“There were ups and

downs,” she said. “I was worried

I wasn’t going to pass

certain tests that they were

requesting me to do. When

I did, I knew it was going to

happen. It was God’s will.”

At the end of March, Berg

donated one of her kidneys to

her uncle, Roger Canchola,

of Skokie.

Canchola said that prior to

the transplant, he would ask

family members at gatherings

if they would be willing

to donate.

“Usually, no one speaks

up,” he said. “Sonya stepped

up this time. ... I’ve been on

dialysis for more than five

years, and kept asking, asking

and asking. I had a couple

people step up, but they

weren’t a good match. Her

being a good match was like

my prayers were answered,

and I felt great about it.”

It was during a Thanksgiving

dinner discussion that

Berg made the decision to

get tested for the transplant.

After having a blood test, she

found out she was a match.

Several tests and doctor’s appointments

later, at the beginning

of March, she and her

uncle were approved for the

transplant.

“My uncle was grateful,”

she said. “It’s not easy for a

lot of people to do this.”.

FROM THE NEW LENOX PATRIOT

Friends of the New Lenox

Library hosts Capoteinspired

Spring Gala

Fundraiser

At the beginning of his

masterpiece “Breakfast at

Tiffany’s”, Truman Capote

writes, “I am always drawn

back to places where I have

lived, the houses and their

neighborhoods.”

The New Lenox Public

Library has served as a second

home for so many, as

it is a place where families

come together in a shared

love of literature and learning.

On April 21, Friends of

the New Lenox Library held

its 10th annual Spring Gala

Fundraiser to support the library

that means so much to

the community.

The gala and fundraiser,

held at the library, also

served as a celebration of the

50th anniversary of “Breakfast

at Tiffany’s,” as it was

first published in 1958.

“This event grows every

year,” said Sue O’Donnell,

Friends of the Library president.

“This is the 10th anniversary

of the gala, so as the

popularity grows, the themes

get better and better, the donations

we receive get better

and better and the food —

which was all donated this

year — continues to be a

highlight.”

Images of Hepburn and

Tiffany gift boxes were

placed throughout the library

and twinkling lights

added to the ambience of

the gala. Approximately 70

silent auctions, music from

Liberty Junior High’s Allegro

Ensemble, food and

raffles were on tap for the

roughly 200 people in attendance.

All proceeds from the

gala go toward library programs

and materials.

FROM THE HOMER HORIZON

Homer resident a part of

collegiate national champion

gymnastics team

Sixteen women on the

University of Wisconsin-

Whitewater gymnastics

team earned the title of 2018

National Collegiate Gymnastics

Association national

champions after competing

March 23 in the NCGA Team

Championship. Among

those 16 women is Homer

Glen resident and Lockport

Township High School graduate

Vanessa Olinger.

The Warhawks have

claimed two consecutive

championship titles and five

total in the last seven years.

Olinger, a freshman, is now

a part of school history.

“When we heard we won,

my head was just full of excitement,”

she said. “All the

hard work, and all the days

at practice, the blood and

the tears and our bodies being

tired, it all paid off at the

end. Just to think we did it,

back to back, we did it.”

There were six teams: The

Top 3 from the Midwest and

Top 3 from the East, competing

at nationals March 23 in

Springfield, Massachusetts.

“It’s not about me; it’s

about the girls, because I

want them to be able to get

the most out of their gymnastics

career while they’re here

at Whitewater,” said Jennifer

Regan, the gymnastics coach

at UW-Whitewater.

Although Olinger was an

alternate at nationals and

did not compete, throughout

the season she has competed

for the team on the balance

beam. At practices, she has

been training for all four

events: floor exercise, vault,

uneven bars and, of course,

the balance beam.

“I love having her on

our team,” Regan said of

Olinger. “She is a huge supporter

of her teammates.”

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Mokena schools teach

internet safety

Keeping children safe

used to just mean protecting

them from the imminent

dangers of the world

around them, so they can

be prepared for a happy and

healthy future; however, the

devices that are constantly in

all our hands, including the

hands of children, are now

among the biggest threats.

And the digital frontier is

only expanding.

So, for Megan Brooks,

chief investigator at the Will

County State Attorney’s Office

High-Tech Crimes Unit,

she thinks that rather than

scaring parents away from

an inevitable future, it is better

to aptly prepare them.

Brooks travels across

the country to educate parents,

and on the evening of

Tuesday, April 24, parents at

Mokena Elementary School

were able to get a few tips

about how to protect their

children online.

The presentation was

part of an ongoing “digital

citizenship” initiative being

implemented throughout

Mokena schools, where students

are given the analogy

that, “You wouldn’t walk up

to a stranger at Starbucks

and tell them your life story,

so why would you tell

someone on the Internet?”

The curriculum is based on

Common Sense Media’s

platform, a nonprofit organization

“dedicated to helping

kids thrive in a world

of media and technology,”

on which parents can give

reviews and opinions about

movies, TV shows, games

and applications in an easyto-understand

way, according

to its website.

A memorable spring in Frankfort

Nuria Mathog

nuria@frankfortstation.com

The past few months

have seemed like an

eternal winter, but

warmer weather appears to

have finally arrived -- hopefully

to stay this time.

Spring has always been

my favorite season, not just

because of the sunshine and

blooming flowers that typically

herald its onset, but

also because it represents

the promise of new growth,

new opportunities and new

beginnings.

Letters to the Editor

Lincoln-Way high school

swimming pools should be

open to residents

Dear Editor,

It has come to my attention

that the Lincoln-Way

high schools no longer allow

free access for Lincoln-

Way residents to use the

swimming pools. It was a

long-standing practice to

have one lane open during

school operating hours for

adult lap swimming. As I

recall, the school’s administration

and school board

pledged to allow free access

to Lincoln-Way residents

to use swimming pools and

fieldhouses if the residents

The Frankfort Park

District and Frankfort

Public Library District have

helped kick off the fun in

recent weeks with activities

geared toward children and

families. On Saturday, April

28, area residents had the

opportunity to participate in

Knockerball — a contactheavy

sport in which

players wear inflatable

balls — at an event jointly

hosted by the park district

and Knockerball Chicago.

Earlier in April, the library

district, in conjunction with

Loyola University’s Lumos!

Quidditch Club, taught the

ins and outs of Quidditch,

a broom-based sport pulled

from the pages of J.K. Rowling's

beloved Harry Potter

series.

For local students, spring

brings a cornucopia of

sporting events and activities,

from musicals and

school dances to water polo

and track and field events.

For many graduating high

school seniors, it's an exciting

time of creating final

memories, spending quality

time with friends and family,

and looking forward to

being part of a new campus

in the fall.

Many of our local students

have accomplished

great things in the past few

months. Lincoln-Way East

seniors Amber Lemmons

and Karnap Patel earned

perfect ACT scores and the

school's music department

recently put on a fantastic

production of "The Hunchback

of Notre Dame."

Student volunteers have

also played an integral role

in a recycling and water

conservation project in

Frankfort School District

157-C, proving it's never

too early to start making a

difference.

On the sports side of

approved referendums for

their construction.

Perhaps times have

changed and the school’s administration

fears terrorists

will cause harm to students.

However, over the past 20

years I do not recall a resident

using the swimming pools

causing harm to students.

If the hours of use were too

voluminous, they could be

reduced to Monday, Wednesday

and Friday from 7 a.m. to

10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

during school hours. That

way the residents could be

checked in and out by administrative

staff. If lifeguards

are necessary student lifeguards

could be given community

service hours during

that time period.

The residents of the

Lincoln-Way School District

pay significant property

taxes to support the

Lincoln-Way school facilities,

teachers and administrative

salaries. I believe the

residents should be given

some consideration for what

they pay. I urge the school

board members and school

administrators to go back to

the practice of allowing residents

to use the swimming

pools.

Tom Weigel, Will County

Board member

things, Dominic Adamo,

a Hickory Creek Middle

School eighth-grader, made

school history by winning

the Tigers' first state

wrestling title at the Illinois

Elementary School Association

wrestling tournament.

The Griffins girls softball

team is going strong and,

as of April 27, had a 14-1

record. On April 24, the

Griffins boys tennis team

secured its first win over the

Downers Grove South Mustangs

with a 6-1 victory.

I hope this season brings

all of you countless opportunities

to try new

things, visit new places and

undergo new experiences.

May spring 2018 be one of

many worth remembering.

Catering food for a healthier community

Amanda Stoll, Assistant Editor

Food is our fuel, but it

doesn’t have to be boring to

be healthy.

With three years of catering

experience under their

belts, Joe and Cristina Lenard

of Healthy Nation Catering,

are expanding their business

to include a small cafe.

In addition to the premade,

preportioned and diet-conscious

meals they already

create for families and individuals

in the area, they are

serving up tasty and healthy

coffees, teas, smoothies and

acai bowls in their store.

“Our response from our

clients has been overwhelmingly

positive,” said Joe Lenard.

He said clients have credited

his food with turning

their lives around and assisting

them with medical crises,

weight issues, dietary restrictions

or simply a want for

healthier meals.

Ultimately, people are happy

with the outcome, he said.

Small changes, such as taking

a different lunch to work

five days a week, can be the

beginning of a healthier life

for many people, and Joe Lenard

said he tries to make it

as easy, accessible and costeffective

for people as he can.

Using his background in

computer science has helped

him save money on business

costs, which allows him to

pass on some savings to his

customers.

But he wants to reach

more.

“Knowing that I’m reaching

those folks in a positive

way, I know that my mission

is to heal the nation, I need

to reach more people,” he

said. “ ... The people build

the community, right. It’s just

a big system that needs to

grow, basically. It’s good. It’s

working. I want to grow it.”

goes back longer than the 20

years he has been in the industry.

“I was always gifted with

turning lemons into a lemon

meringue chiffonade cream

pie,” he said.

But more than that, cooking

for other people has always

been a passion of his.

Whether turning his friends’

leftovers into a new creation

or concocting new menu

items for the catering business,

Joe Lenard said it has

always been “fun” for him.

“Cooking food erased time

and space for me,” he said. “

... Knowing that I was pursuing

college for a degree that

I didn’t enjoy, sitting in that

workspace, I dreaded the

hours or I counted the hours.

I knew that’s not how I wanted

to spend the next 40 years

of my life.

“I figured if I made my

work my play, I win on both

sides.”

Meals begin at $5 for some

of the soups and many meals

are in the $7-$9 range. He also

offers family portions with up

to six servings, making meal

time easier for busy families

who still want to eat healthy.

Joe Lenard said items off

the “Whole 30” menu have

been very popular, especially

Acai bowls are blended with acai berries, banana and a variety of fruits including raspberries, strawberries and

blueberries and can be topped with fruit and granola. Photos by Amanda Stoll/22nd Century Media

for those who are looking to

identify food allergies and

sensitivities. By returning to

a basic diet without gluten,

dairy, eggs, added sugars or

processed foods, people are

able to identify those problem

foods after cutting them

out for a time and gradually

adding them back into their

diets, he said.

“When looking at it, people

think it’s a nightmare,”

he said. “What it really is is a

return to whole foods.”

In the near future, Joe Lenard

said he and his wife

hope to host community education

classes, parties and

other events after hours at the

cafe and in their food prep

area, where they have previously

held cooking classes.

Fundraiser to benefit

Frankfort Bluegrass Festival

Submitted by Frankfort

Bluegrass Festival

Eight years ago, the idea

to have a bluegrass festival

on Briedert Green in Historical

Downtown Frankfort,

Ill, was born. Something

that is unique about

this two-day music festival

is that is completely free.

The family-friendly atmosphere

draws people from

around the country to the

small town of Frankfort to

hear award winning bluegrass

musicians. Along with

the main stage acts, there

are also workshops, a jam

tent, kids area, food and

craft vendors. The Frankfort

Bluegrass Committee

and all of their volunteers

work tirelessly throughout

the year to raise money

for the non-for-profit

festival.

One of the ways that they

are able to keep the festival

free is through the fundraiser

held every year. This

year the fundraiser will be

held at CD&ME/Frankfort

Spirits.

Amanda Thompson,

a Bluegrass Committee

member, says, “Having it

at CD&ME is awesome.

We were looking to have

one big fundraiser this year

and we are happy to partner

with them, as they have

been a sponsor for a number

of years.”

This year’s fundraiser will

have music from Fox Crossing

String Band, Growler,

The Grateful String Band

and Anderlik, Otto &

Church. For $35 ahead of

time visitors can also get

food and beers/drinks from

Trails Edge Brewery, Blue

Island Beer Company and

Frankfort Spirits.

So why have a fundraiser?

Since the festival

is non-for-profit and there

are no actual tickets for the

festival, money is the main

purpose of the fundraiser.

“There are many costs

associated with the festival

such as lodging, kids activities,

accounting, insurance,

T-shirts and more besides

just the musical performers.

It takes a village and we

are glad to have Frankfort

be that village,” Thompson

said. “We are glad to have

this festival be a free festival

when people are so

concerned over the cost of

most activities and musical

events.”

This year’s festival will

be held Saturday, July

14, and Sunday, July 15,

rain or shine. Musical acts

this year are the awardwinning

Jeff Austin Band,

Breaking Grass, Balsam

Range, Special Consensus,

The Henhouse Prowlers,

Eric Lambert and Steve

Habericther, Miles Over

Mountains, Front Country,

Chatham County Line, Michael

Cleveland and Flamekeeper,

Chris Jones and the

Nightdrivers, Growler, the

Grateful String band, Mile

Twelve, Circus No. 9, Georgia

Rae Family Band, River

Valley Rangers, Fox Crossing

String Band, Anderlik,

Otto & Church, Rorey Carroll,

Kenny and Amanda

Smith.

To purchase tickets to

the fundraiser on May 11,

2018, please visit www.

brownpapertickets.com/

event/3382337. Tickets are

$35 in advance and $40 at

the door.

Steve Haberichter, a

Bluegrass Committee member

and owner of Down

Home guitars adds, “We are

anticipating a great turnout

for the Frankfort Bluegrass

Fest Fundraiser at CD&ME.

Great music, food, raffles

and more. Come show your

support.”

The Dish

‘Fiesta’ is Spanish for Fat Rosie’s

T.J. Kremer III

Contributing Editor

The pollo al chipotle ($18) is grilled chicken breast with a

creamy chipotle sauce, served with garlic mashed potatoes

and green beans, topped with crispy onions.

Cinco de Mayo is nearly

upon us, and one Frankfort

establishment has been

ready for it for the past 364

days: Fat Rosie’s.

The Mexican restaurant

specializes in “very authentic”

Mexican cuisine, according

to head chef Raul

Arreola, who was born in

Mexico City and has more

than 30 years of culinary experience

under his belt.

More on that authentic

cuisine shortly.

Firstly, because it is the

first thing customers will notice,

Rosie’s offers authentic

party atmosphere. From

vibrantly colored walls and

doors to loads of Mexican

knickknacks — including

sombreros, boot-shaped

shot glasses and a talking

donkey — there is no place

else around that has the same

let’s-get-ready-to-party ambiance

as Rosie’s, and the

management likes it that

way.

Judging by the popularity

of the restaurant that opened

in 2015, so do the customers.

“Especially on the weekends,

it’s a little bit louder in

here,” said Joe Christiano regional

director. “We crank it

up. You’re here to party. The

whole point of the restaurant,

what the owner wanted,

was a fun, party atmosphere

where you don’t feel like

you’re sitting in a restaurant

in Frankfort, Illinois,

let alone the United States

somewhere; he wanted the

authentic feel of you being

Mexico, almost.”

Now, back to that Mexican

cuisine.

A special Cinco de Mayo

menu is scheduled for the

holiday, featuring a trimmed

down version of Rosie’s regular

menu.

One of the signature appetizers

is the ensalada a la

parrilla ($8), with mixed

greens, tomato, avocado and

chipotle-honey vinaigrette.

Of course, no Mexican restaurant

would be complete

without tacos, and Rosie’s

has several options of those

from which to choose.

There are the al pastor ($4

each), grilled pork shoulder,

grilled pineapple, guajillo

pepper, onion and cilantro,

served on corn tortilla.

There is the staple carne

asada ($5 each), with avocado-tomatillo

salsa, and pico

de gallo and queso fresco.

Or, for seafood lovers, the

camarones Veracruzanos

($5 each), sautéed shrimp,

Veracruzana sauce and goat

cheese, served on corn tortilla.

Customers needing a little

more food to help soak

up some of Fat Rosies’

22 ounce margaritas ($9)

should check out the pollo

al chipotle ($18), grilled

chicken breast with creamy

chipotle sauce, served with

garlic mashed potatoes and

grilled green beans, topped

with crispy onions.

All of those are great,

but for a dish that cannot

be found anywhere else on

the planet, diners will want

to go for the enchiladas en

mole ($18), a special recipe

that Arreola’s grandmother

taught him. It’s a grilled

chicken enchilada with

queso Chihuahua and mole

negro, served with rice and

beans. The recipe is so secret

that Arreola said he will not

even let anyone in the kitchen

when he is preparing it.

Restaurant staff pride

themselves on the freshness

of the food, Christiano said,

so most items are prepared

early in the morning to ensure

the maximum amount

of freshness for the customers.

And they also pride themselves

on interacting with

customers — not just the

waitstaff, but managers and

chefs will often be found

walking through the restaurant

and mingling with

guests to make sure everyone

is having a great time.

So, do not be too surprised

if out of nowhere you get

some sombreros tossed on

your party’s heads and some

tequila to wash down the

food. It is all part of the atmosphere.

Fat Rosie’s normally takes

reservations, but on Cinco

de Mayo it is walk-in seating

only; however, if the

place gets too crowded, or

for those who just prefer to

eat outside, they are scheduling

a taco garden, weather

permitting, with a limited

menu of four different tacos

and beer.

The restaurant opens early

— at 10 a.m. — on Cinco de

Mayo, so diners will want to

get there early, as well, and

make sure not to miss the

mariachi band. Just look for

the 16-feet-tall donkey pinata

outside, and listen for the

party coming from inside the

restaurant.

It’s hard to miss.

Distinctive Home Builders Introduces New Craftsman Home Series

At Prairie Trails in Manhattan and WestGate Manor in Peotone!

Two new designs (with more to follow) are a direct result of buyer feedback

Two refreshing designs mark

the beginning of a new series

of Craftsman-style homes

available from Distinctive Home

Builders at its latest new home

communities: Prairie Trails;

located in Manhattan within the

highly-regarded Lincoln-Way

School District and at WestGate

Manor in Peotone within

the desirable Peotone School

District.

“Craftsman homes were

introduced in the early 1900s

in California with designs

based on a simpler, functional

aesthetic using a higher level

of craftsmanship and natural

materials. These homes were a

departure from homes that were

mass produced from that era,

“according to Bryan Nooner,

president of Distinctive Home

Builders.

“The Craftsman design has

made a comeback today for

many of the same reasons it

started over a century ago. Our

customers want to live in a home

that gets away from the “mass

produced” look and live in a

home that has more character. As

a result of our daily interaction

with our homeowners and their

input, we are excited to introduce

these two homes, with additional

designs in the works.”

Nooner, who meets with

each homeowner prior to

construction, has been working

on these plans for a while and felt

that the timing was ideal for the

debut. “Customers were asking

for something different and

simple with less monotony and

higher architectural standards.”

The result was the Craftsman

ranch and the Prairie twostory,

now available at Prairie

Trails and WestGate Manor.

The Craftsman ranch features

an open floor plan with Great

Room, three bedrooms, two

baths and a two-car (optional

three-car) garage. The Prairie

features a two-story foyer and

Great Room, three bedrooms

and one and one-half baths, a

convenient Flex Room space

on the main level and a two-car

(optional three-car) garage. The

Craftsman architectural elements

on both homes include brick and

stone exteriors with cedar shake

accent siding, low-pitched gabled

bracket roofs, front porches with

tapered columns and stone piers,

partially paned windows, and a

standard panel front entry door.

Distinctive Home Builders

offers a Craftsman-style trim

package offering trim without

ornate profiles and routers. The

trim features simplicity in design

with rectangles, straight lines and

layered look trims over doors for

example. The front entry door

will have the standard Craftsman

panel style door. Distinctive has

also created a Craftsman color

palate to assist buyers in making

coordinated choices for the

interior of their new Craftsman

home. Colors, cabinet styles and

flooring choices blend seamlessly

with the Craftsman trim package

and are available in gray tones

package and earth tones.

Distinctive offers custom maple

kitchen cabinets featuring solid

wood construction (no particle

board), have solid wood drawers

with dove tail joints, which is

very rare in the marketplace.

“When you buy a new home

from Distinctive, you truly are

receiving custom made cabinets

in every home we sell no matter

what the price range,” noted

Nooner.

Distinctive Home Builders

works to achieve a delivery goal

of 90 days with zero punch list

items for its homeowners. “Our

three decades building homes

provides an efficient construction

system,” said Nooner. “Many of

our skilled craftsmen have been

working with our company

for over 20 years. We also

take pride on having excellent

communicators throughout our

organization. This translates into

a positive buying and building

experience for our homeowners

and one of the highest referral

rates in the industry.”

Nooner added that all homes

are highly energy efficient. Every

home built will have upgraded

wall and ceiling insulation

values with energy efficient

windows and high efficiency

furnaces. Before homeowners

move into their new home,

Distinctive Home Builders

conducts a blower door test that

pressurizes the home to ensure

that each home passes a set of

very stringent Energy Efficiency

guidelines.

With the addition of these two

new designs, there are now 15

ranch, split-level and six twostory

single-family home styles to

choose from each offering from

three to eight different exterior

elevations at both communities.

The three- to four-bedroom

homes feature one and one-half

to two-and-one-half baths, twoto

three-car garages and a family

room, all in approximately 1,600

to over 3,000 square feet of living

space. Basements are included in

most models as well. Distinctive

also encourages customization

to make your new home truly

personalized to suit your lifestyle.

Oversize home sites; brick

exteriors on all four sides of the

first floor; custom maple cabinets;

ceramic tile or hardwood

floors in the kitchen, baths and

foyer; genuine wood trim and

doors and concrete driveways

can all be yours at Prairie

Trails and WestGate Manor.

Most all home sites at Prairie

Trails and WestGate Manor

can accommodate a three-car

garage; a very important amenity

to the Manhattan homebuyer,

said Nooner.

“When we opened Prairie

Trails and WestGate Manor we

wanted to provide the best new

home value for the dollar and

we feel with offering Premium

Standard Features that we do

just that. So why wait? This is

truly the best time to build your

dream home!”

Prairie Trails is also a beautiful

place to live and raise a family

featuring a 20-acre lake on site,

as well as direct access to the 22-

mile Wauponsee Glacial Prairie

Path that borders the community

and meanders through many

neighboring communities and

links to many other popular

trails. The Manhattan Metra

station is less than a mile away.

Besides Prairie Trails,

Distinctive Home Builders

has built homes throughout

Manhattan in the Butternut

Ridge and Leighlinbridge

developments, as well as in the

Will and south Cook county

areas over the past 30 years.

Distinctive Home Builders

chose the Will County village

of Peotone for its newest

community of 38 single-family

homes at WestGate Manor

within walking distance of the

esteemed Peotone High School.

Its convenient location between

Interstate 57 and Illinois Route

50 provide easy access to I-80

and commuters enjoy several

nearby train stations and a

35-minute drive to Chicago.

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Jared Bruni

Jared Bruni is a senior on

the Lincoln-Way East boys

water polo team

How long have you

been playing water

polo for and how did

you get started?

I've been playing water

polo for about eight years

now, and I got started at

Flossmoor Country Club.

My mom got me interested

in it because she played in

college. So, I started there,

playing 14 and under.

What do you enjoy

most about water

polo?

I really enjoy the sport in

general. It's really fun and

aggressive, and I also enjoy

being with the team. It's

really fun to hang out with

them, in and out of the water.

What are you most

looking forward to this

season?

The sectional tournament,

which is coming up in a

couple of weeks. It's the last

one, and I think we have a

really good chance of winning

this year and going

to state and playing really

good water polo.

What are your

strengths as an athlete?

Definitely my defensive

abilities, because the position

I play is rather aggressive

and I'm really good at

it.

What athletic

accomplishment are you

most proud of?

Just yesterday (April 28),

we were playing in the Stevenson

Tournament, and we

were playing Loyola, and it

was tied 4-4 with about 45

seconds left in the game.

Loyola had the ball. They

were passing it around, one

of the guys that I was covering

had the ball. I stole the

ball from him and scored

the game-winning goal.

What are your plans

for after high school?

I'm going to go to the University

of Illinois and major

in psychology and join their

club water polo team there.

Outside of water polo

are you involved in

any other sports and

activities?

I'm on the swim team, and

that's really it: I swim and

do water polo.

What's your favorite

memory of playing

water polo?

Last year, I went to state

and I was able to play in the

state game. That was really

cool. It was a really cool experience

to play at that level

and on that team. We were

really good last year and

we're just as good this year.

What do you usually

do to prepare for a big

game?

Photo submitted

Usually I eat a lot of pasta

to carb-load and try to get

some rest and really visualize

the game and really

think about what I have to

do to get the win.

If you could travel

anywhere in the world,

where would you visit

and why?

I would definitely want

to visit Italy, because I've

been there a couple of times

before when I was younger,

and my memory of it's a little

cloudy, and from what I

remember it was really fun.

And my dad's family was

there, so it's cool to know

your roots and your heritage.

Lincoln-Way East graduate

inspires epilepsy awareness game

Submitted by Lincoln-Way

Community High School

District 210

Lincoln-Way East alumna

Lauren Knepper is the

brainchild behind Lincoln-

Way’s first Epilepsy

Awareness Game. Photo

submitted

On May 3, at 4:30 p.m.

the Lincoln-Way Central

Knights softball team will

host the Lincoln-Way West

Warriors in its first Epilepsy

Awareness Game.

Knight and Warrior players

and coaches will be decked

out in purple to support epilepsy

awareness.

The idea for the game was

prompted by Lincoln-Way

East graduate Lauren Knepper,

who initially reached

out to Lincoln-Way Central

Athletic Director Matthew

Lyke in early April. She told

Lyke that she wanted to coordinate

efforts for an official

Epilepsy Awareness Game,

and Lyke connected her to

Lincoln-Way Central head

softball coach Jeff Tarala.

Knepper graduated from

high school in 2012 and eagerly

enrolled in college at

Saint Xavier University in

the fall. Just when she was

getting settled into college,

she says that her world “came

crashing down.”

“My friend found me unresponsive

in my bed after I

hadn’t answered any of her

texts or calls,” Knepper said.

“I was rushed to the ER and

spent several days in a medication-induced

coma in their

neurology ICU and even longer

on the neurology floor.

I woke up with a breathing

tube in. Cords, wires, IVs,

machines, drains and devices

were everywhere. I couldn’t

talk or move; it was the scariest

feeling of my life. My

nurse told me I was lucky to

be alive. I learned I had gone

into status epilepticus, a continuous

seizure state that can

cause death.”

Knepper then began to

have grand mal seizures three

to four times per week. After

medications, countless appointments,

hospitalizations

and a surgery designed to

help her condition, Knepper

says she “finally started

to gain a little more control

over my life.” Before her senior

year, Knepper earned a

student leadership position,

meaning she would have her

own room without a roommate.

“The summer before my

senior year, I was frantically

looking for any kind

of solution to being alone

at night,” she said. “This is

something that people with

epilepsy can get very nervous

about because you can

suffocate in your pillow, fall

out of bed, injure yourself or

go into continuous seizure

state — many of which can

lead to death. That’s when I

found out about The Danny

Did Foundation. After I applied,

they paid in full for a

bed alarm for me and sent it

to me the next week.”

The alarm is designed to

sound when it senses certain

movements over a certain

amount of time, and would

alert Knepper’s suitemate

to ensure she was safe at

night. “It definitely saved my

life more than once during

school,” she said.

Since then, Knepper has

become more independent

and gained more control over

her seizures. She even works

as a nurse in the same hospital

that saved her life, and has

become an active member of

The Danny Did Foundation’s

Young Professionals Board:

a motivating force for Knepper

to raise awareness of her

disease, as well as help others

with epilepsy.

“After meeting Danny’s

family and hearing how this

little boy helped so many

people through those who

loved him, I knew I had to

join their family in this endeavor,”

she said.

The Lincoln-Way Central

vs. Lincoln-Way West

softball game is just one of

many ways Knepper plans on

spreading epilepsy awareness

this year.

“Any opportunity to help a

former graduate of Lincoln-

Way and the community in

a positive way is what we

should be about,” Tarala said.

“Lauren’s story is so powerful;

this is an opportunity to

educate the girls and others in

the community about others’

struggles, and to get involved

in something that is bigger

than ourselves.”

Those who wish to support

epilepsy awareness are invited

to attend the May 3 game

at Lincoln-Way Central. During

the game, Knepper will be

handing out information about

The Danny Did Foundation.

She will also host a basket

raffle with items donated by

local businesses; funds raised

will be donated to The Danny

Did Foundation.

Those who wish to learn

more about The Danny Did

Foundation, seizure safety

and the little boy who

sparked the movement can

Thursday morning quarterback

Stevie’s spirit lives on with

area baseball tournament

Jeff Vorva, Sports Editor

Steven Bajenski died in 2009 at age 17 after a lifetime

of serious health ailments. He would have turned 26 on

Tuesday, May 8. Photo submitted

To be honest, I wish I never

heard of Steven M. Bajenski.

I wish I never heard of the

Do It Stevie’s Way 219 Foundation.

I wish there wasn’t a Do

It Stevie’s Way high school

baseball tournament – one of

the coolest tournaments in the

south suburbs, if not the state.

As a parent – heck as a

human – I wish Steven was

a normal, healthy man who

is living his life. Maybe he

would be a young hotshot on

the rise at his chosen profession.

Maybe he would be like

many of us working hard to

pay the bills and worrying

about how much money that

funny sound in his car engine

is going to cost him.

Either way, he would still

be here and that would make

his family very happy.

But that’s not how the

cards were dealt.

Steven Bajenski would

have turned 26 on Tuesday,

May 8. But the Mokena

resident died at age 17 after

living life with a series of serious

health ailments, including

having open-heart surgery

performed on him when

he was just 10 weeks old.

He loved sports and played

baseball, basketball and football

even though he was usually

one of the smallest players

on whatever team he was

on.

He became a legendary

player with the Illinois

Sparks and Mt. Carmel.

He wasn’t a star, but he

was an inspiration.

Bajenski died in 2009. A

year later, family and friends

cooked up a baseball tournament

in his honor and to raise

money for scholarships for

student athletes. So far, the

tournament, now in his seventh

year, has raised six figures

for the cause and Sandburg’s

Branden Comia and

Lemont’s Easton Tally were

scholarship award winners

for 2018.

The tournament has grown

from eight to 14 teams. Providence

Catholic, Sandburg

and Lockport are schools in

the 22nd Century Media coverage

area in the tournament.

Schools with area students

attending including Brother

Rice, Marist, St. Laurence,

Mt. Carmel, Marian Catholic

and St. Rita are also a part of

the tournament.

Some opening round

games have already taken

place in March and April

(Providence and Sandburg

were among the openinground

winners) but things are

really going to heat up May

16-19 at various ballyards

including Standard Bank

Stadium in Crestwood, Joliet

Route 66 Stadium and Wheaton

College.

It’s a nice pre-cursor to the

Illinois High School Association

Class 3A and 4A playoffs,

which begin May 21.

I hate to admit it, but the

first time I heard of the tournament

was in 2012, when

two teams had a brawl during

one of the tournament games

and it made news in Chicago.

The first thing I thought

was “I’ll bet that’s not Stevie’s

way.”

Stevie’s father, Mark, told

CBS Chicago that the family

and members of the foundation

were “disheartened” by

the brawl and “I want (Stevie)

to be remember for a

kid who got it, who did it the

right way.”

Aside from that incident,

the tournament has delivered

nothing but top-notch baseball.

St. Rita won the first tournament,

beating Mount Carmel,

10-4, in the championship

game. After that, champions

were Joliet Catholic, Andrean

(from Indiana), Mount Carmel,

and St. Rita won again

in 2016 and 2017. Could this

be Sandburg, Providence or

Lockport’s year?

Every year around this

time, Stevie’s parents, Mark

and Karen, must have an

ache in their hearts because

he is no longer around.

But they must also have a

lot of pride in their hearts that

Stevie’s spirit is still inspiring

and helping high school

athletes.

Celtics’ pitching duo combine for one-hit shutout

Steve Millar

Freelance Reporter

Bryce Barnett started the

job and Ryan Manikowski

finished it as Providence

turned in a dominant pitching

performance on April 25.

Barnett, an Arizona State

recruit, took a no hitter into

the fifth and allowed just

one hit in five innings before

Manikowski got the final six

outs to secure the host Celtics’

1-0 win over Lockport.

“At the start of the game

I felt well,” Barnett said. “I

just made my pitches when I

had to. I just kept on throwing

and let my defense do

the job behind me.”

Providence (11-7) got

the only run it would need

against the Porters (11-6)

in the fourth inning as Logan

Anderson led off with

a single, moved to second

on Alex Helmin’s sacrifice

bunt, took third on a wild

pitch and scored on Brennan

Geers’ RBI groundout.

Lockport senior Tommy

Louch was untouchable otherwise.

He allowed just the

one run on four hits in six

innings, striking out five and

walking four.

“Hats off to their pitcher,”

Providence coach Mark

Smith said. “It would’ve

been nice to get a two or

three-run lead, but we knew

it’d be a tough day with the

wind blowing in. We found

a way to get a run in at the

right time.”

Barnett and Manikowski

made sure the one run would

hold up.

Barnett (3-1), a junior,

struck out nine and walked

just one in his five innings.

He said he was especially

fired up to face the Porters.

“I live in Lockport, I went

to school with all those guys

when I was younger and I

would’ve went to Lockport

if I didn’t come here,” Barnett

said. “That was on my

mind all day today at school.

I was definitely fired up to

face them.”

Barnett’s day ended with a

bit of a scare. While warming

up before the sixth inning,

he felt a bit of tightness

in his throwing arm and had

to come out of the game.

“I just got a knot in my

forearm,” he said. “Nothing

major.”

Suddenly needing a relief

pitcher, Smith turned to

Manikowski, but the sophomore

from New Lenox

wasn’t in the dugout.

during a game between the two teams. Photos by Julie McMann/22nd Century Media

“I was supposed to pitch

[the next day], so I wasn’t

expecting to hear my name

called,” Manikowski said. “I

was up on the hill shagging

foul balls, and then I had to

come in and get ready to pitch.

“I didn’t think were was

anyway I was going to pitch,

but I just had to come in and

stay calm and collected and

get the job done. I’ve got a

good defense backing me up

all day, so I wasn’t nervous

at all.”

Manikowski got in a bit of

a jam in the seventh as an error

and an infield hit by the

Porters’ Ryan Moerman put

runners on first and second

with one out.

Manikowski, though, got

the next two hitters to fly

out and ground out to end

the game and record his first

save.

“He’s a quarterback in

football, so we told him he’s

got to get used to being in

those pressure situations because

we might see him under

center for the Celtics in

the future,” Smith said. “He

did a great job in a tough

situation.”

Dylan Gorski, Josh

Mrozek and Steven Meyer

each had one hit for Providence,

along with Anderson’s

single.

The Celtics are still looking

for a more consistent offense.

“We’re still getting there,”

Smith said. “The one thing

I thought would be our

strength this year, our hitting,

hasn’t. I think when the

weather gets better, we’re

going to start hitting. Our

pitching has been really

strong and our defense has

improved, so it’s just the hitting

right now. We’ve got to

keep plugging away.”

After a 5-5 start, Providence

has won six of its last

eight games.

Anderson (.265 average,

17 RBIs) and senior catcher

Nick Jones (.327, 17 RBIs)

have been the team’s top

hitters. Helmin and Dakota

Katowski have each hit three

home runs.

Barnett leads the pitching

staff with his 3-1 record and

0.90 ERA, while Ben Vitas,

Ethan Petric and Jake Miller

each have two wins.

“Ever since our win

against Marian Catholic (on

April 13), everything’s been

coming together,” Barnett

said. “Once we start getting

some timely hitting, we’re

going to be really good.”

The Celtics' Logan Anderson takes a swing at the ball.

Adult Diapers May No Longer Be

Needed Thanks To Amazing New Pill

Clinical studies show new pill may be effective enough to replace adult diapers for bladder control; initial

users show dramatic reduction in trips to the bathroom, embarrassing leaking, and nighttime urgency.

Robert Ward,

Associated Health Press

AHP− Adult diaper sales are expected to

plummet as results from aclinical trial on

anew, patented bladder control pill have

finally been released.

Sold under the brand name UriVarx,

the new pill contains key ingredients

that keeps the bladder from releasing

voluntarily, which reduces accidents and

frequent bathroom trips.

Perhaps more impressive, italso targets

the tiny muscles around the bladder,which

helps the bladder to create atighter seal.

This would explain why the average

UriVarx user in clinical trials experiences

a66% reduction in urinary incontinence

symptoms, such as day and night leaking

and sudden urges to urinate.

NEW DISCOVERY

IN BLADDER CONTROL

Until now, doctors believed it was

impossible to strengthen the muscles that

control the bladder. They are amazed to

see that it can now be done with the nonprescription

UriVarx pill.

“As you get older, and the involuntary

muscles around your bladder weaken,

you lose urinary control. With your bladder

wall unable to properly seal, you constantly

leak and feel pressure tourinate”

explains Dr. Bassam Damaj of Innovus

Pharmaceuticals.

“UriVarx targets the bladder muscles

and help restores vital kidney health,

reducing urgency and frequency. It also

helps you “hold it” for hours so you

never have to worry about embarrassing

accidents ever again!”

FREEDOM FROM SUDDEN

URGES AND LEAKS

Since hitting the market, sales for the

patented UriVarx pill have soared and

there are some very good reasons why.

To begin with, the double blind

large clinical studies published in the

clinicaltrials.gov have been impressive.

Participants taking UriVarx saw a

stunning reduction in urinary frequency,

which resulted in fewer bathroom trips

both day and night.

They also experienced a dramatic decrease

in incontinence episodes, such as

leaking and bed wetting.

The active ingredients in UriVarx

comes from a patented formula. It is

both safe and healthy. There are also no

known serious side effects in its history

of use.

Scientists believe that the ingredients

target the muscles of the bladder to grow

stronger. These muscles are responsible for

keeping the bladder tightly sealed. They

also help the bladder to completely empty,

allowing bacteria to be flushed from the

urinary tract.

Research has shown that as you get

older,certain hormonal changes in the body

cause these muscles to shrink and become

lose. This is what causes the bladder to be

over active and the resulting urine accidents

and why UriVarx seems to be so effective

in the published clinical trials.

EXCITING RESULTS FROM

URIVARX USERS

Many UriVarx users say their bladders

have never been stronger. For the first

time in years, they are confident and in

complete control. Adult pads and diapers

are nolonger abig worry.

“After my third child, Icouldn’t control

my bladder. Iwas running to the bathroom

all the time! And once I hit my 60s it

became so unpredictable Ineeded to wear

adult pads every day” explained Marie L.

of Danbury, CT.

“I was embarrassed so before going to

my doctor Idecided to try UriVarx and I’m

so glad Idid! The urgency is gone and I

no longer feel like my bladder is about to

explode. Ican also “hold it” when Ineed

to so I’m no longer living in constant fear

of finding abathroom.”

IMPRESSIVE CLINICAL RESULTS

The exciting clinical results published on

the government clinical website clinicaltrials.gov

show that UriVarx can strengthen

your bladder fast, significantly reducing

the urine urgency and leaks.

In a new double-blind, placebocontrolled

clinical study, 142 men and

women with bladder control issues were

separated into two groups. The first group

was given a placebo while the other

received UriVarx.

The results were incredible. The

participants who received UriVarx saw

major improvements in leaking, pressure,

and the urgency to go −all without the

usual side effects seen in prescription

drugs! They also reported fewer trips to

the bathroom both day and night.

Overall, the UriVarx group experienced:

• 56% Reduction in Urge Incontinence

• 66% Reduction in Stress Incontinence

• 61% Reduction in Urgency

• 33% Reduction in Frequency

• 46% Reduction in Nighttime Bathroom

Trips

Additionally, atthe end of clinical trial

and after seeing the results, 84% of the

participants taking UriVarx said it

significantly improved their quality of

life.

“The clinical findings are incredible, but

people still wonder if it will really work”

explains Dr. Bassam Damaj. “It’s normal to

be skeptical, but we’ve seen thousands of

UriVarx users get results exactly like the

participants in the study. It’s an amazing

product.”

HOW ITWORKS

UriVarx is apill that’s taken just once

daily. Itdoes not require aprescription.

The active ingredients are patented natural

extracts.

Research shows that as we get older,

the muscles which surround the bladder

weaken. This is caused by hormonal

changes in the body that causes the

muscles to atrophy and weaken.

When they become too small and weak,

they cannot seal your bladder shut, which

causes leaking, accidents, among other

incontinence symptoms.

It also prevents your bladder from fully

emptying, which can result in persistent

bacterial infections and UTIs.

UriVarx’s active ingredient targets the

muscles around the bladder, making them

stronger. Supporting ingredients in Uri-

Varx support kidney function and overall

urinary health.

NEW PILL MAYREPLACE DIAPERS FOR BLADDER

CONTROL: This new patented clinically proven

pill solution is now available nationwide

BLADDER

PROBLEMS GONE

With daily use, UriVarx can restore

strong bladder control and help users

overcome leakage without the negative

side effects or interactions associated with

drugs.

Leakage sufferers can now put an end to

the uncontrollable urges, the embarrassing

accidents, and enjoy an entirely new level

of comfort and confidence.

LW Central falls to East in girls water polo crossover

Randy Whalen

Freelance Reporter

The Lincoln-Way East

and Lincoln-Way Central

girls water polo teams will

likely meet again next week

when the postseason opens.

But last week the two tuned

up by playing each other for

the second time this season.

There the Griffins finally

got past their rivals by a

score of 15-6 on April 24,

in a key SouthWest Suburban

Conference matchup in

Frankfort.

It was the 14th win in the

past 16 games for East (18-

8, 5-0), which is seeded second

in its own sectional, behind

Sandburg. The Knights

(18-7, 5-1), the No. 3 seed in

the sectional, dropped their

first SWSC game of the season.

Although the two teams

played earlier in the season,

this was designated the official

conference game. Last

season Central defeated the

Griffins three times, by a

total of four goals, including

11-10 in the sectional

final.

The two teams met earlier

this season on March

28 in New Lenox. There

the Knights pulled out the

victory by a score of 10-7.

After that loss, East reeled

off 12 straight victories before

dropping two of three

games against some of the

state's best competition in

the Naperville Central Tournament.

If the seeds hold

up, Central and the Griffins

will meet in the sectional

semifinals.

"My team is new this

year, so we don't dwell on

losses from previous years,"

East coach Kendra Will

said. "New year, new team.

We didn't play very mentally

strong the first time we

played them this season. We

have been working to improve

that and be the team

that we can be. The girls

have really been working

on adjusting throughout the

course of the game.

"They did a great job and

we plan to continue to do

that as we go into the sectional."

A half dozen players got

in on the scoring for East.

Sophomore Emma Hernandez

led the way with four

goals. Senior Reis Parkinson

scored a trio of goals.

Junior Jordan Bruni, senior

Meghan Fisher and sophomore

Tina Winter scored

two goals each, and sophomore

Katie Meagher tallied

too. Sophomore Grace Wilk

was great in goal for the

Griffins.

"I felt like it was one of

our best games," said Hernandez,

one of those new

players on this season's

team. "We worked together

the whole time and never

gave up."

Ahead by two goals in

the final seconds of the second

quarter, Fisher fired in

a goal to give the Griffins

a 7-4 lead with six seconds

to play in the first half. Hernandez

scored 21 seconds

into the third quarter and

had a pair of goals in the

period as East then pulled

away and led 11-5 after

three. Another 4-1 margin

in the fourth quarter provided

the final score.

"We had a more positive

mindset going into

this game," Parkinson said.

"Everyone worked very

well together and everyone

clicked."

The Griffins never trailed.

The game was tied 1-1 and

2-2 after the first quarter.

Parkinson poured in a goal

eight seconds into the second

quarter and East led the

rest of the way.

"In the second half they

pulled away and we had

a hard time after that,"

East's Emma Hernandez (4) attempts to take the ball from Central's Caroline Heathcock (16).

Knight coach Pam Dettman

said. "East played

lights out and our girls just

have to be on their game.

We added a game early

in the season against both

East and Sandburg, and

then play them at the end

for conference. We did that

because we knew that we

could see them in the postseason,

and if we did we'd

have to play to that level or

better."

Senior Caroline Heathcock

had three goals to pace

Central. Sophomore Madi

Jager scored twice and junior

Megan Cales added

a first period goal for the

Knights.

"I think East was a really

fast team," Central senior

goalkeeper Claire Connors

said. "There were a lot of

fast break goals for them

and it was really tough. We

played our best and we just

have to work on shooting.

Hopefully if we see them

again it will be a different

result."

But Connors, who played

at East her freshman and

sophomore seasons, always

looks forward to playing her

old school.

"It's always kind of a fun

thing to play them and see

your friends," she said. "If

we play them again [in the

sectional], we know what

they do. Hopefully we can

shut them down on defense

and it will be a closer

game."

The next day, April 25, the

Griffins (19-8, 6-0) traveled

to Bradley-Bourbonnais

for another SWSC mathup

and won that by a score of

13-1.

East ended the regular

season this week with two

more key SWSC games.

Those were on Tuesday,

May 1, at Lincoln-Way

West and then at 5 p.m. on

Thursday, May 3, the Griffins

host Sandburg in the

regular season finale and

what they hope will be a

sectional final preview.

The Knights hoped the

same as they also played

Sandburg in a big matchup

on Tuesday, May 1, of this

week. This Thursday, May

3 at 5 p.m. they host Stagg

for Senior Night, and then

wrap up the regular season

on Saturday, May 5, starting

at 8 a.m. at the Stevenson

Tournament.

The sectional will be held

at East for both the boys and

the girls. The girls quarterfinal

games are on Thursday,

May 10, with the semifinals

the next day and Saturday,

May 12, will be the title

match.

T.J. Kremer III, Contributing Editor

Kara Krolicki started her high

school basketball career at Lincoln-

Way East before moving on to St.

Xavier, where she ended her career

as the school’s all-time leading

scorer (2,726 points) and second

all-time in rebounds (1,155). Twice

she was named the National Association

of Intercollegiate Athletics

Player of the Year and an Academic

All-American three straight years.

Krolicki helped lead St. Xavier

twice to the Fab Four in the NAIA

playoffs. Now, set to graduate this

month with a degree in finance,

Krolicki sat down with The Station

to reflect on her career and plans

moving forward.

Frankfort Station: Which of your

accomplishments are you most proud

of?

Kara Krolicki: That’s a hard

question. I’m definitely proud of

all of them. I don’t think you ever

make your goals to go out and break

records and things like that. You

just want to be successful and win

games. I’m definitely proud of being

able to receive the Player of the

Year two times; I know it’s only been

done a couple of times. I think, now

that I’m graduating and going out

into the real world, I’m proud of the

academic aspect of it. When you’re

younger, you don’t really think about

the importance of the academic

awards, but now that I’m searching

for jobs, internships, I think that the

academic awards while being able

to balance a full-time sport is eyeopening

to a lot of people.

FS: How did you develop your

game?

KK: I’ve always been called by

my coaches a “gym rat.” I just like

to be in the gym. I like to be around

the game. In the summers I spend a

lot of time going up to the gym and

playing full-court games with different

people and siblings and friends. I

just really enjoy being in the gym…

So, I think my big thing was working

on things that I wasn’t good at, and

that’s the time to mess up and to try

new things. You’re not going to get

better by sticking to things that you

know. I think just being in the gym a

lot and spending time doing different

things. I spent a lot of time playing

against guys and scrimmaging with

guys, which definitely elevates your

game, I think, because guys are faster

and stronger and things like that,

so you have to learn to do things in a

different way.

FS: In your career you’ve been

able to accomplish so much and

you’ve led by example. How would

you describe having that leadership

quality?

KK: I definitely feel that I did take

on a leadership role while at St. Xavier,

and I think that comes from growing

up having coaches who instilled

that quality in me, always pushing

me to lead by example… I definitely

enjoyed that role because I think that

later in life — I’ve been able to realize

I will enjoy being in a coaching

position or being involved in coaching

in some way.

FS: Who else gets credit for your

success?

KK: I’d like to say how much I

appreciate how involved my parents

were in my basketball career, and

how they’ve always been at every

game. There’s never been a game

where I don’t remember having a

parent or a brother there. I’d like

Kara Krolicki, a Lincoln-Way East alumna, finished her career at St. Xavier

as the school’s all-time leading scorer, with 2,726 points. She also holds

the school's second highest all-time record in rebounds. Photo submitted

to thank them for their dedication

and being able to push me and give

up things in their lives to get me to

where I am today.
