Guest bartenders raise money for American Cancer Society

Will County board

members participate

in Relay for Life

fundraiser

Amanda Stoll, Assistant Editor

“Everybody, no matter if it

is a family member or friend,

has been touched by cancer

in one way or another,” said

Will County Board Member

Tyler Marcum.

And Marcum has unfortunately

seen his share of the

devastation cancer can have

on a family with his father

and two uncles having lost

their battle with the indiscriminate

disease.

In an effort to fight back,

Marcum and other members

of the Will County Board are

continuing their involvement

with Relay for Life and raising

money for the American

Cancer Society to fund research

and support services

for cancer patients and survivors.

In what is becoming an

annual tradition, board members

served up drinks May 9

at Gatto’s Italian Restaurant

and Bar in New Lenox as

guest bartenders.

Marcum, who is a team

captain this year, said the

event raised more than

$1,000 last year, and they

were hoping for similar success

this time around.

“The more money we

raise, it all goes to cancer research,”

Marcum said.

Board Members Ray Tuminello,

Gloria Dollinger and

Judy Ogalla mostly poured

Silver Cross community

benefit totals more than

$39 million in FY 2017

Submitted by Silver Cross

Hospital

Silver Cross Hospital’s

community benefit totaled

more than $39 million in fiscal

year 2017 (Oct. 1, 2016-

Sept. 30, 2017).

Included in the hospital’s

community benefit was more

than $5.1 million in charity

care in which Silver Cross

does not expect payment

from patients. Additionally,

more than $4.1 million in

uncompensated services was

provided through the government’s

Medicaid program.

“Silver Cross’ dedication to

care for the entire community,

regardless of whether or not a

person can afford to pay for it,

is truly exemplary and proves

that the organization sincerely

cares about the overall health

and well-being of the area

residents it serves,” said Margie

Woods, Chairperson of the

Silver Cross Healthy Community

Commission.

Silver Cross Hospital’s FY

2017 Community Benefit initiatives

included:

• Pledge to Provide Free

Care: In 2008, the Hospital

pledged to provide at least $4

million a year for ten years

in charity care to serve the

poor and uninsured in Will

County. In the past ten years,

NEW LENOX TOWNHOME!!!

• 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

www.garydurishrealty.com

OVER 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE!

over $71 million in care was

delivered to Will County patients.

That number reflects

the actual cost of health care

provided. It does not include

shortfalls in payments from

the state’s Medicaid program

for the poor or the Medicare

program for seniors and disabled

citizens. These programs

only cover a fraction

of Silver Cross Hospital’s

cost for treating patients.

• Financial Assistance: Silver

Cross provides financial

assistance to patients who

maintain a household income

up to 300 percent above the

Federal Poverty Level. In addition,

the hospital provides

a 50 percent discount off of

charges to all uninsured patients.

Applications for assistance

are available online

at www.silvercross.org or by

contacting the Patients Accounts

Department at (815)

300-7087. English- and

Spanish-speaking financial

counselors are available.

• Subsidized Services and

Screenings: In addition to

charity care and governmentsponsored

indigent care, Silver

Cross provided more than

$1.1 million in other community

benefit last year, which

included free and subsidized

health services, programs and

screenings, and donations to

• Full finished basement

• Private porch

• Walking distance to schools & parks

$144,900

more than 200,000 people in

Will County.

• Emergency Medical

Services (EMS) Resource

Hospital: Silver Cross is

also helping to save lives as

the resource hospital for the

area’s EMS system. Silver

Cross gave $612,000 to provide

paramedic training, continuing

education, and monitoring

of ambulance services

in Will and Grundy counties.

• Scholarships and Grants:

Through the Silver Cross

Healthy Community Commission,

the Hospital also

awarded more than $200,000

in healthcare-related scholarships,

workforce development

grants and quality-oflife

initiatives. More than

50,000 individuals associated

with local organizations such

as Alpha Kappa Alpha Sororities,

Coalition of Black

Trade Unionists, Community

Service Council, Forest Park

Community Center, Harvey

Brooks Foundation, Hispanic/Latino

Coalition of Will

County, NAACP (National

Association for the Advancement

of Colored People),

National Hook-up For Black

Women, Senior Services of

Will County, Spanish Community

Center, University of

St. Francis and Warren Sharp

Community Center were

beneficiaries of Silver Cross’

investment in the community.

“We want to ensure everyone

in our community has

access to quality healthcare

regardless of a patient’s income

or insurance status,”

said Ruth Colby, President

and CEO of Silver Cross

Hospital. “As a not-for-profit

healthcare provider, we are

committed to providing highquality

care to all our patients

and the community.”

Summit Hill D161 Board of Education

Community proposal suggests buying

Lincoln-Way North, becoming K-12 district

RITA

STARKEY

PRICE

Megan Schuller

Freelance Reporter

Community members

and parents of Summit Hill

School District 161, which

serves parts of Mokena,

Frankfort and Tinley Park,

offered an interesting proposal

during the public comments

section of the May 9

Board of Education meeting.

Tinley Park and District

161 resident Stephen Cook

was granted the time to discuss

the yearlong research

he and a group of community

members have done regarding

the possibility of acquiring

Lincoln-Way North

for $56 million and restructuring

of D161 into a K-12

unit district.

“We have a $100 million

closed school in our backyard,”

Cook said. “The

students of 161 are being

packed into a school with

800 to 1,000 more students

than Lincoln-Way Central

and Lincoln-Way West.

The students of 161 are

entering the school district

of 210 with less opportunities

and larger class sizes.

And we are still paying the

mortgage on Lincoln-Way

North.”

The benefit would be mutual

to both school districts,

according to Cook. Not only

would it give D210 a better

Moody’s bond rating, but it

would release their district

and taxpayers of paying for a

school that is not operational.

For D161, it would thin

out the crowded schools, allow

smaller class sizes and

create school facilities that

could be used by the public

when school is not in session.

“We’re not asking for

more money from the taxpayers,”

Cook said.

Round it Up

A brief recap of other items discussed at the May 9 D161 board meeting

• Students from the spelling bee, math team, scholastic bowl and the state science

fair were recognized for their outstanding achievements in competition.

• Several teachers were recognized by the board due to positive feedback they had

been given from parents.

• Jennifer Winefka was approved for the position of assistant principal of Summit Hill

Junior High.

• Enrollment is holding steady in all grade levels and in all schools, serving a total of

2,969 students.

Cook’s said his research

showed that this proposal

would ideally prevent a tax

spike based on the current

D210 bond issue, and either

maintain or improve home

values within D161.

Prior to closing, Lincoln-

Way North had 24.5 percent

of total district 210 enrollment.

Since closing, most

of the students from D161

schools feed into Lincoln-

Way East, which holds 41.8

percent of the total student

enrollment, according to Illinois

State Board of Education

data.

“We would not be here

tonight if we didn’t think it

was possible,” Cook said.

“Financially this can be

done.”

Cook explained the plan

utilizes the assets of D161 to

achieve the highest level of

education at the lowest possible

cost to the taxpayers of

D161 and D210.

“I have to give everyone

time to digest this before we

can give any form of direction,”

Board President Rich

Marron said to Cook following

his presentation. “I look

forward to reviewing this.

I thank you and the people

you worked with on this for

clearly the amount of time

you put into this and the data

you got,”

If eventually approved and

implemented, the proposal

would open Lincoln-Way

North for the 2021 season.

Feasibility studies cost up to

$12,000; however, the ISBE

will pick up roughly half of

the bill.

D161 Superintendent

Barb Rains said the district

plans to review the details

of the proposal. D210 Community

Relations Director

Taryn Atwell issued a,

“no comment,” because the

board has not yet seen the

group’s proposal.

Security upgrade survey

approved

Security was also a hot

topic of discussion at the

meeting. The board unanimously

passed a building

security survey that will be

conducted by Brook Technologies

for all seven district

buildings at a total cost

$10,500, and six new cameras

totaling $1,800.

“We’re becoming more

sophisticated with want we

want to put in place but we

want to map it out first,”

Superintendent Barb Rains

said.

The survey will examine

and map out the security

plan of the entire district and

determine things such as the

best placement of cameras

and test how secure the entry

access points are.

“It’s well worth hiring

people that know exactly

what they’re doing and what

is out there to get a system

that works seamlessly. It

seems like a lot of money,

but its money saved in a lot

of ways,” said board member

James Martin.

Board member Stacy

Borgens suggested the discussion

regarding the Crisis

Go Software be tabled

until the survey comes back

from Brook Technologies.

The software would facilitate

a safety system to make

emergency plans and class

lists accessible from any

phone or tablet in the case

of an emergency. The initial

cost would be $8,500, decreasing

to $6,900 annually.

D843 liaison replacement

named

After Marron removed

himself as the Summit Hill

liaison to District 843 governing

board during the

April 25 meeting, Martin

was appointed to step in and

take that place.

“Mr. Martin I am quite

certain that you are qualified

to watch out for the educational

needs of District 843,”

Marron said before the vote

which passed anonymously.

The next regular board

meeting is scheduled for 7

p.m. on May 23.

Eventually all homes sell, but only at the price a

buyer is willing to pay. Sounds intuitive, doesn’t it?

But consider the following:

Many homeowners have a gut feeling that their

home is worth much more then its true market

value. This is just human nature and we all want to

get the best price we can when selling something,

especially our homes. Also, you may be enticed by

a real estate agent who tells you your house can sell

for a higher price than they know is competitive,

just to get your listing. Remember, the number one

reason houses don’t sell is pricing over market value.

Be realistic with your asking price, and your house

will sell more quickly. I am sure you have heard

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION Remember

there are three factors that sell your homes, price,

condition and location. You can’t pick up your home

and move it to a different location, you can however

control the price and the condition. We will discuss

the condition next month.

Inaugural Disability Service Fair a hit for LWSRA

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

The Lincolnway Special

Recreation Association

makes it clear in its mission

statement that along with

providing recreation services

for individuals with disabilities

its staff also has a

passion for promoting greater

disability awareness in the

community.

On May 5, the organization

did just that as it hosted

a first Disability Service Fair

aimed at empowering participants,

parents, teachers,

therapists and more with a

greater knowledge about

resources available to them

within the area. The idea for

this inaugural event came

from a parent who suggested

that LWSRA staff coordinate

with Renewal Disability Services

to organize a comprehensive

fair aimed at identifying

businesses – from

dental care to sports teams

to therapists – that provide

high-quality services for individuals

with special needs.

“This is our first year,

Service Dogs.

and we have 26 vendors,”

said LWSRA Marketing,

Outreach and Fundraising

Supervisor Karyn Reczek.

“We even have our very own

dog and pony show because

we have a therapeutic pony

and therapeutic dogs here

today.”

Everything from financial

planning experts to

special needs law firms, to

a local weighted blanket

vendor, Just Sew Special,

were represented at the Disability

Fair. Office manager

Lorraine Monteleone

from Frankfort’s Treasured

Smiles Pediatric Dentistry

was also available to answer

questions about stress-free

trips to the dentist.

“We enjoy seeing children

of all abilities,” she said.

“Our doctors are board certified

pediatric dentists and

they’ve acquired training to

treat children with special

needs. We try really hard

to adapt to each individual

child’s special needs so we

try to acclimate to whatever

is going on with them. We

use behavior modification

and sometimes it’s just about

letting the child feel comfortable

in the environment

of our office. We want them

to have a great experience.”

An unexpected benefit

of the Disability Fair came

in the form of vendors networking

with each other.

Several professionals shared

resources and contact information

so they can refer

their clients to local service

purveyors – rather than

sending people out of state –

in the future.

Fun recreational groups

were also showcased at

the fair including Chicago

Blackhawks Special Hockey

– based out of Arctic

Ice Arena in Orland Park –

which teaches life skills and

promotes social interactions

through sportsmanship and

athletics.

business that makes weighted blankets and other items, pose for a picture.

“We take any player from

the age of five to about 57

that has a disability,” said

Orland Park coach David

Steinberger said. “We work

with them to first learn

to skate and then to play

hockey. This last year, the

National USA Hockey Disabled

Hockey Festival was

in Chicago, and we had five

teams of disabled players

participating in that tournament.”

Summer Camp was the

topic at hand at LWSRA’s

booth as registration recently

opened for the popular

program. Reczek encourages

participants to sign-up

early as it does fill up.

LWSRA is also asking supporters

to mark their calendars

for the morning of Friday,

Aug. 10 as its annual Golf

Outing will once again be held

at Sanctuary Golf Course.

“The golf outing is the

biggest fundraiser of our

foundation,” Reczek said.

Following the success of

the inaugural Disability Fair,

LWSRA already has plans to

grow the event in the years to

come.

“We value quality over

quantity, but I’m pleased as

punch with the turnout that

we had this first year,” Reczek

said.

LWSRA’s Summer Brochure

is out now and more

information about upcoming

events can be found at www.

Freelance Reporter

Bethsaida Children’s

Home is a nonprofit organization

located just outside of

Nairobi, Kenya. The home

is a permanent residence for

20 children, and there are 78

children of both Bethsaida

and the neighboring slum

who attend the K-8 school

there.

Last July, Sarah Pajeau

traveled to Kenya to volunteer

at Bethsaida Children’s

Home as a childcare volunteer

for a month and is returning

for her second time at the

end of the month. When she

returns, she hopes to make a

difference in the lives of the

children at the home through

donations given at the Bowling

for Bethsaida event on

May 6 at Mokena’s Thunder

Bowl. The event featured

a raffle, a bake sale, basket

giveaways and dolly grams

to send to Kenya.

Pajeau has spent much of

her life traveling and doing

study abroad programs, but

when she told her mother

Chris Pajeau that she wanted

to volunteer, Chris was surprised.

“She always thought that

she wanted to travel extensively,

but last summer, she

said she wanted to travel

and volunteer, but I would

have never guessed in a million

years this is where her

path would have taken her,”

Chris said. “She met those

kids, and those kids are [essentially]

hers.”

After searching online for

a non-religion affiliated volunteer

organization, Sarah

was able to find International

Volunteer Headquarters.

While there were over 30

countries for her to choose

from, Sarah already knew

she was destined for Kenya.

When she applied, she was

immediately accepted.

While Sarah had previously

traveled to developing nations,

to prepare for this trip

she had to take additional

precautions before departing,

such as taking malaria

pills and getting a vaccine

for yellow fever. Thinking

that she wouldn’t be able to

shower, she packed lots of

Wet Wipes and was grateful

she did. After she arrived,

she saw the scarcity of

feminine hygiene products

available to women and their

price when they are available,

and she was happy

she packed enough to share

some, but aims to take more

her next trip.

Juliah Wangari and her

husband, Hika Kamau, are

the leaders of the orphanage,

and must rely heavily

on donations from others to

help meet their needs. Sarah

aims to raise enough money

to provide the basic necessities

such as food and water,

school supplies and clothing.

Additionally, money will be

allocated toward transportation,

building updates and

medical related costs.

The cost of one ticket to

bowl was $25 for the evening,

and 80 percent of money

raised was going directly

to help children living in extreme

poverty.

“It’s $25 for a ticket for

my event and $25 is going to

go to get food for a week,”

Sarah said. “That’s a lot that

somebody’s actually giving.

It doesn’t seem like a lot

of money, but it’s so much

more for the people who are

actually receiving it.”

For Sarah’s parents, Sarah’s

humanitarianism was a

change they needed to adjust

to, but they couldn’t be more

proud that their daughter is a

global force of change.

Sarah Pajeau shows her photo book from her trip last year

to her eighth-grade math teacher from Summit Hill Jr. High,

Ryan Hagen. Pajeau held a fundraiser May 6 at Thunder

Bowl in Mokena to benefit children in Kenya.

Photos by Rochelle McAuliffe/22nd Century Media

Joey Barnas, of Mokena, prepares for his turn to bowl

during the Bowling for Bethsaida event. He was there to

help raise funds with his mom.

“I think that we’ve come

to terms with the fact that

— not that we’re necessarily

going to lose her, but I think

this is part of her trajectory.

This is her passion. It’s​Just

who she is, and I’m OK

with that,” Chris said. “All

it takes is somebody to care

and show interest. ​I mean,

she’s 22 years old. She’s

making the difference in the

lives of kids who have absolutely

nothing. I hope that it

starts this domino effect because

if she can do this, my

gosh.”

“I think it shows you that

you can also do it; she just

like picked this up and did it

on her own and it shows that

anyone can do something,”

said Peter Judge, a friend

of Sarah’s who came to the

event to help raise money

and support her cause.

Sarah is scheduled to return

to Kenya for her second

trip May 30. She will be helping

to teach, cook, clean and

even build a well with the

same children at Bethsaida.

If you would like to help

donate to Sarah before she

leaves, please contact her at

sarah.r.pajeau@gmail.com.

Mokena resident wins 2018

Vacation Photo Contest by reflecting

Bill Jones, Managing Editor

Road trips are about the

moments while they are happening.

But those moments

often lead to fond reflection

years later.

And this year’s Vacation

Photo Contest had Amy

Knoop reflecting about,

well, a reflection.

Last summer, she took a

road trip with her daughters

Riley and Jaiden along the

Florida Gulf Coast. They set

out, Knoop said, to experience

“sunsets, seashells and

swimming.”

While they were taking a

swimming break to catch the

“amazing sunset” in Sanibel

Island, Florida, Knoop captured

the photo that would

end up winning in 22nd Century

Media Southwest Chicago’s

2018 Vacation Photo

Contest.

“The sunset was reflecting

off the water, creating a mirror

image of the gorgeous sky,”

she wrote. “When imagining

what a summer family vacation

should be, I will forever

think of this image, because it

sums it all up so beautifully.

No filters needed.”

Knoop’s winning photo

is published on the cover

of the 2018 Summer Fun

Guide, included with this

week’s issue of The New

Lenox Patriot. She also won

the following Grand Prize

Package: gift cards valued at

$200 for Gizmos Fun Factory,

66 Orland Square Drive,

Suite D, in Orland Park; a

gift certificate for two hours

of bowling and shoe rentals

for up to six people on a

lane at Laraway Lanes, 1009

W. Laraway Road in New

Lenox (the certificate also

includes one 12-inch pizza

and one pitcher of pop); four

passes, each good for 13 entries

for one session for one

child at Mokena Community

Park District’s Yunker Farm

Splash Park, 10824 LaPorte

Road in Mokena; a gift certificate

for a 45-minute salt

cave session at Royal Salt

Cave & Spa, 20881 S. La-

Grange Road in Frankfort;

a gift certificate valued at

$25 for Rubi Agave, 12622

W. 159th St. in Homer Glen;

a gift certificate valued at

$25 for Odyssey Fun World,

19111 Oak Park Ave. in Tinley

Park; and six $5 gift certificates

from Dairy Queen,

950 E. 9th St. in Lockport.

Publisher 22nd Century

Media asked area readers

for their best vacation photos,

this year focusing on

a theme of “road trips and

winging it.” Entries were

judged based on photo quality,

originality, capturing the

essence of vacation, emphasis

on summer and ability to

fit the theme.

The staff at 22nd Century

Media would like to thank

everyone who took the time to

share their photos and stories

with us for this year’s iteration

of the contest, as well as the

local businesses that donated

prizes for our winner.

Last month, the Swiss Benevolent

Society of Chicago

notified Lincoln-Way West

student Adriana Zuniga that

she had been chosen as a

winner of a scholarship to a

one-week French Language

Immersion Program at the

Concordia Villages.

“I am beyond excited to

study the French language

and culture over the summer,”

Zuniga said.

Zuniga originally learned

about the language immersion

camp scholarship

through her French teacher,

Dawn Floyd.

“Adriana is an enthusiastic

French student with a lot

of talent and interest in languages,”

says Floyd. “She is

one of several students that I

recommended for the Swiss

Benevolent Society’s scholarship,

and I am thrilled that

she will have the opportunity

to advance her skills

this summer. Concordia’s

camps are excellent and offer

a unique environment

for students to learn languages

that is different from

our classroom experience.

I can’t wait to see what she

will bring back to us.”

To be eligible for the

scholarship, applicants must

be between the ages of seven

and eighteen, and reside in

Illinois, Wisconsin or Indiana.

Each application must

be submitted with a statement

made by the student,

parent and language teacher.

“When I first received the

email, I was ecstatic and so

were my parents,” Zuniga

said. “My family members

and classmates all congratulated

me on the award, but

Madame Floyd was the most

excited out of everyone.”

The scholarship covers the

cost of attendance to a oneweek

long language immersion

camp at the Concordia

Language Villages in Minnesota.

Zuniga is in the process

of solidifying her trip,

and hopes to attend in July.

As a bilingual student,

Zuniga says she already

sees the benefits of knowing

more than one language.

“It gives one the opportunity

to better understand different

cultures and the people

they consist of,” she said. “I

am hoping to meet students

that share the same aspirations

I do when it comes to

learning new languages.”

FROM THE ORLAND PARK PRAIRIE

Officials raise, table video gaming

question in split vote

The battle over whether or not to

allow video gaming in Orland Park

continues, after the Village Board

voted 4-3 May 7 to table a decision

on the ordinance.

Mayor Keith Pekau and trustees

Michael Carroll and Dan Calandriello

cast the dissenting ballots.

The ordinance on the floor was

to allow video gaming within Village

limits, albeit with many restrictions,

and came after three

town hall meetings on the topic

and two non-binding/advisory referendum

questions on the March

primary ballot. The results of the

election showed a slight edge for

those against video gaming in Orland

the ordinance, and its successes or

failures, yearly for the first three

years post-implementation. It also

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

Beloved Andrew teacher Lloyd

Eichwald dies

The tributes began pouring in on

social media as soon as the unexpected

news made its way around the

Andrew High School community.

Science instructor Lloyd H. Eichwald,

of New Lenox, died over the

weekend of May 6. Adored by students

and respected by colleagues,

Eichwald taught the subject of biology,

but it was his compassionate

and connective approach, often

starting class with an introductory

“good morning, inspiring scholars”

and finishing with a joyful “biology

is life” farewell that made the longtime

educator stand out, according

to past and current students.

“Mr. Eichwald was not ill nor

had any health conditions, making

his passing all the more surprising

and challenging,” Andrew Principal

Bob Nolting said in a message

to families. “For those who

knew Mr. Eichwald knew a teacher

who was passionate about his subject

but more passionate about the

connections he made with his students.”

Counselors and social workers

were available for students and

staff throughout the week to help

those in need to cope.

“Yesterday was a challenge for

many students, staff, alumni and

parents,” Nolting said in a followup

message posted May 8. “Many

shared their thoughts on Mr. Eichwald

through letter-writing, storysharing,

twitter posts and art. Mr.

Eichwald was a beloved teacher

and it was a painful, but healthy,

day to grieve as a school. We know

that students and staff will continue

to struggle, as we attempt to return

to some level of normalcy.”

Eichwald is survived by his wife,

Nancy, and children, Shannon,

Lindsey and Erich.

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Event by Accelerate, police

encourages safety for young

drivers

With prom just around the corner

for many high school students, the

Mokena Police Department teamed

up with Accelerate Indoor Speedway

to show students firsthand the

dangers of distracted and impaired

driving.

“Hopefully, kids will have a better

appreciation of what impaired

driving can cause, what distracted

driving can cause and, of course,

the inherent dangers,” Mokena Police

Chief Steven Vaccaro said.

Although he said the department

does not respond to many calls of

young drivers driving under the

influence, Vaccaro noted distracted

driving is a problem for many people

in the community.

“Distracted driving and impaired

driving are not only dangerous for

[the driver], but they’re dangerous

to the entire community and any

community [they] drive through,”

Vaccaro said.

High school students were challenged

to drive the course in a kart

while wearing goggles that simulated

drowsy driving or intoxicated

driving — at a blood alcohol level

twice the legal limit.

Even Accelerate employees who

know the course better than anyone

had difficulty navigating the

orange cones lining the center of

the curves and creating obstacles

on the straightaways.

Officers from the Illinois State

Police, as well as the Carol Stream

Police Department, teamed up to

bring a rollover simulator and lowspeed

crash simulator to the event.

FROM THE FRANKFORT STATION

Frozen custard, hockey center

coming to Frankfort

A new Freddy’s Frozen Custard

& Steakburgers and an indoor

hockey training facility are one

step closer to becoming a reality,

after the Frankfort Village Board

on May 7 granted special use permits

for both projects.

Freddy’s intends to construct a

3,476-square foot restaurant at the

Frankfort Crossing Shopping Center,

9701 W. Lincoln Highway. The

special use permits approved by

the Village allow a drive-up service

window, a carryout restaurant and

outdoor seating for the project.

The board also approved a major

planned unit development change

to allow the construction of the

restaurant, conditional upon staff

approval of a revised landscape

plan and verification that the garden

well height will be sufficient to

provide screening from headlights

from Route 30.

Another special use permit approved

by the Village trustees will

allow The Cube Training Center, a

proposed indoor hockey facility, to

use the space at 9216 Gulfstream

Road, Unit A, in the Airport Industrial

Park, for indoor recreation and

entertainment purposes.

Trustee Bob Kennedy said he

wanted to thank the planning commissioners

for their work on the

projects.

“I want to thank them for their

diligence, their vision, their agreements

and their disagreements, to

get the best overall product together

for us as trustees to review that,

I think, has an overall net benefit

to the Village of Frankfort and its

residents,” he said.

FROM THE HOMER HORIZON

Former LTHS teacher pleads guilty

in revenge porn case

A former science teacher at

Lockport Township High School

pleaded guilty May 7 to an attempt

of nonconsensual dissemination of

private sexual images, according to

Chuck Pelkie, a spokesperson for

the Will County State’s Attorney’s

Office.

Stephen Soderborg, 30, of 19508

Parker Road in Mokena, reversed

his earlier plea of not guilty after

an unsuccessful attempt by his

lawyer, Jeff Tomczak, to argue that

the law under which Soderborg

was charged was unconstitutional,

court records show. Tomczak has

not returned a request for comment

on the matter.

The conviction, which is a Class

A misdemeanor, carries two years

of court supervision; a $750 fine;

and requirements to attend anger

management classes, complete 50

hours of community service at a

facility that benefits women or victims

of domestic violence, and refrain

from contact with the victim.

Soderborg was charged in January

2017 for posting a private photo

of his ex-girlfriend online, Will

County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman

Kathy Hoffmeyer said at

the time. She said then that the

charge was the result of an investigation

which started in November

2015, when Soderborg’s exgirlfriend

alleged he had private

photos of her in his possession and

had posted them online without her

permission.

Hoffmeyer added at that time

that Soderborg made statements

to detectives that he had taken

the pictures offline and realized

he should not have posted them,

though results of a search warrant

still found one image online, which

led to his arrest.

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

Lockport artist finds community at

artist guild

Diane Clavio has been a member

of The Artist Guild of Lockport for

less than a year, but the group already

has had a significant impact

on her.

“I was looking for a group, because

I’m social,” she said. “I don’t

like to paint by myself all the time

and not have other creative people

around me. So, I was looking

around, and I tried one group and

I didn’t like it. So then, I went to

the art museum in Lockport, and

the curator there ... was telling me

about the guild. So, I decided to try

it.”

After having used mostly oils

early in her art career, Clavio transitioned

to acrylic paint, which is

what she uses today.

Clavio was inspired to start her

art career before even reaching

high school, and has been honing

her craft off and on ever since then.

“In eighth grade, we had a class,

and they would take us outside

and do different things, and [the

teacher] was very creative, and

everything he did I just thought

was beautiful,” she said. “He did

all kinds of mediums, so it just

sparked an interest.”

From the editor

Showcase your pet, express creativity through poems

James Sanchez

james@newlenoxpatriot.com

My cats are a pain

in my side most of

the time.

I can never leave food

on the kitchen table or else

the two will snack on them,

leaving a trail of crumbs

leading to where they

sleep. I have one cat, Bobo,

who uses the litter box 80

percent of the time and

spends the other 20 percent

“watering” my plants. The

other cat, Clay, sometimes

relieves himself next to the

litter box instead of going

inside it, for some reason. I

have a multitude of complaints

I could add on, but

I’ll just mention these.

But despite those obstacles

I have to deal with,

it’s hard to start hating them

for that. I love them both so

much. They both have been

with me through my teenage

years as a high school freshman

up until now. They’ve

been with my family for 15

years, so it’s hard to picture

my house without them in

it. What I love about Bobo

is that he sometimes acts

like a dog. He doesn’t do

this anymore, but when he

was younger, he knew how

to play fetch. My siblings

and I would fling rubber

bracelets or feathery toys

around, and he would bring

it back and drop it in front

of us, no problem. And

at night, he would sleep

anywhere on my parents’

bed while they’re on it. He

would be between them, on

top of my mom’s pillow or

at the end of the bed closest

to the door as if he was a

guard dog.

Clay, who my sister

named after American Idol

runner-up Clay Aiken from

2003, is the perfect brother

to Bobo. They’re always together

on top of the couch

looking out the window for

birds and rabbits to follow

around. They had another

sister, Mew, and another

brother, Cooper, both of

whom passed within the

past three years, but they

were one big happy family

when they were all together.

Cats are usually territorial,

but they weren’t, and

that’s what special about

them.

Now it’s your turn. The

New Lenox Patriot is in

need of more Pets of the

Week. Tell us why your pet

means so much in your life

(see Page 12 to see how it’s

formatted). And it doesn’t

have to be a dog or a cat.

In the past, I’ve had rabbits,

horses and numerous

reptiles as Pet of the Week.

One time, I’ve even had a

rooster. There’s a chance

I’ll receive a number of

submissions following this

editorial, so there might be a

delay on when your pet will

be featured. However, I’ll

keep you posted on when

your pet will be published.

As for poems for Poetry

Corner, resident poet Julie

Sanders has been a contributor

for The Patriot for a

number of years now. She’s

accounted for nearly all

published poems in my time

here as editor, and I look

forward to publishing more

of hers. I also encourage

other wordsmiths out there

who would like to showcase

their creativity to do so. I

know there’s plenty more

poets in New Lenox, like

A change

of home

Terry Nolan

New Lenox resident

My son

Has gone home...

To his,

Not mine.

He told me many times

But I did not hear

Initially

The significance of

“When I get home...”

He’d say-

Not meaning here,

But someplace

Foreign to me,

More familiar

Obviously,

To him.

He’s twenty-two.

It’s time.

Inevitable,

Healthy,

To be expected.

Yet I greet the

Realization first

With surprise--

Slow sadness.

Some would say

I haven’t lost a son

But gained a TV room.

I’d take the son,

But I won’t tell him.

Soon,

Twenty years or so,

With a son or daughter,

He’ll hear

And know what’s

In my heart.

New Lenox Community Park District celebrates everyday heroes

Amanda Del Buono

Freelance Reporter

Casey Gahan runs through a superhero training obstacle

course – one of many activities at the event.

Children were able to make their own cape during the

event. Pictured is Mason Gray designing his.

With “Avengers: Infinity

War” topping the box office

records, it seems that superheroes

remain a favorite in

today’s culture. Although

superheroes like Batman

and Wonder Woman come

to mind when one thinks of

a superhero, the New Lenox

Community Park District

highlighted the superheroes

in our everyday lives —

moms.

On May 6, the park district

hosted its third annual

Mom/Son Superhero Night.

With a slew of activities,

food and fun, mothers and

their sons – ages 3 to 10

years old – were invited to

spend an evening together

the weekend before Mother’s

Day.

Looking for a new type

of mother-son event, Recreation

Supervisor at the

NLCPD Tracy Wrase came

up with the idea of a superhero

night, which has

proven successful since its

inception, she said. In fact,

this year, the event reached

capacity with more than 100

people present at the event.

“I like that we can have

fun celebrating moms and

all the hard work they do,”

Wrase said. “… And we

want to show them that the

park district is with them

because they do so much

work, and we want to do

something special for them.

“It’s a really great event

that grows every year. I’m

very happy moms enjoy the

event.”

Not only were attendees

invited to dress up as their

favorite superheroes, they

also enjoyed a variety of

craft activities, including

making their own mask,

cape and superhero tools

to fend off villains. Additionally,

young heroes had

the opportunity to test their

skills in an agility course.

Last, but certainly not least,

mothers and sons had the

opportunity to meet Captain

America, who was present

at the event for a meet-andgreet

and photos.

New Lenox resident Nina

Davis attended with her

3-year-old son, Blake, who

dressed as Batman.

“This has surpassed my

expectations, from the decorations

to Captain America

and the activities,” Davis

said.

Many mothers, especially

those with several children,

enjoyed the one-on-one

time they were able to spend

with their sons. Homer

Glen resident Karen Boers

has three other children

at home, but was happy to

spend time with her 4-yearold

son, Jack.

“I think the event is

great,” Boers said. “[Jack

has] had a great experience

and it’s fun to see the kids in

costume.”

Others enjoyed not only

time with their family, but

also time with friends. New

Lenox resident Sabrina

Green and her son, Sully,

4, attended with their local

friends Christina Hack and

her son Jacob, 4.

“We did this last year,

and [Jacob] met Spiderman,

so we were excited to do it

again this year, and we invited

Sabrina and Sully to

come with us,” Hack said.

“Sullivan thinks he’s a superhero,

he wears costumes

every day, so this was perfect

for us,” Green added.

“… Everything was really

cute, and we both [Sabrina

and Christina] have other

kids at home so this is special.”

Triad talk for seniors

Making the right investment choices

Kathie Johnson

Director of Family Services for

New Lenox Township

This month I would

like to bring to your

attention to Investor.

gov, the U.S. Securities and

Exchange Commission’s

website that is a very important

outlet that provides online

resources to help people

make sound investment

decisions and avoid fraud.

The Securities and

Exchange Commission

enforces the laws on how

investments are offered and

sold to the public. Protecting

investors is an important

part of their mission. They

cannot tell people what investments

to make, but they

provide unbiased information

to help people evaluate

their choices and protect

them against fraud.

Here is just a small

amount information that

one can find and research at

Investor.gov:

• How to save and invest

wisely.

• Showing people how

to do accurate research and

learning the risks of financial

investments.

• Providing people a place

where they can submit your

own questions and complaints

to the Securities and

Exchange Commission.

• Information on arbitration

and mediation clinics.

• Retirement: Early planning

of retirement, managing

lifetime income.

• Senior Specialist Designations

and advisors: What

people should know about

professional designations.

Some financial professionals

use designations that

imply that they are • experts

at helping seniors with

financial issues. Those who

want to find out more about

a particular professional

designation can find that

information at Investor.gov.

• Avoiding retirement

fraud; resources for victims

of fraud: Tips on how to

avoid fraud and where people

can go for help. Retirees

are often the target of fraud.

However, with some basic

understanding of how scam

artists work, people can

avoid fraud and protect their

hard-earned money. Learning

how to invest safely can

mean a huge difference in

peoples’ retirement years.

• Investor.gov offers

a free financial planning

calculator.

• Publications, investor

alerts and bulletins/tips for

seniors regarding social

media and investing. People

will be able to read investor

bulletins that provide

seniors who use social media

with tips to help them do so

more safely and to help them

avoid investment fraud.

Never be afraid to

complain or ask questions.

Those who suspect fraud or

a questionable practice and

the explanations he or she

receives are not satisfactory,

do not let embarrassment

or concern that people will

be judged incapable of

handling their own affairs

prevent them from filing a

complaint.

Seniors who learn of

investing opportunities from

social media should always

be on the lookout for fraud.

Those who have a question

or concern about an investment,

LWMB announces new drum majors

Submitted by Lincoln-Way

Community High School

District 210

The Lincoln-Way Marching

Band is proud to announce

its Drum Majors of

the 2018-2019 season. Hailey

Woock (Lincoln-Way

West), Alex Guzzo (Lincoln-

Way East), Nick Forlenza

(Lincoln-Way East), Jessica

Lyons (Lincoln-Way Central)

and Madisen Tomaszewski

(Lincoln-Way West)

were chosen from a group

of 17 musicians who applied

for the highly coveted positions.

Drum Majors, who are

selected once each year, are

chosen by Band Directors Dr.

Bert Johnson, Christopher

Mroczek, Justin Barnish and

Cary Ruklic. The five upperclassmen

were selected

through a three-stage tryout

process, and are especially

excited due to the highlight

event that awaits on January

1, 2019: The Tournament of

Roses Parade.

“I’m absolutely enthralled

for this upcoming season,”

Woock said. “With a great

competitive show in the

works and The Rose Parade

to finish off the season,

there’s nothing to not be excited

about! I am even more

excited to march the parade

as a Drum Major. Being able

CONTACT

to march as a leader of such

an incredible and hardwork-

Lyons Forlenza

ing band fuels my heart and

reminds me how lucky I am

to be a part of this program.

With this being my last year

at Lincoln-Way and as a

Drum Major, I can’t think of

a better way to end my time

here than marching down the

streets of Pasadena with my

best friends.”

The Drum Major selection

process is a multi-stage

interview, including a video

submission by the musicians,

a one-on-one interview,

as well as a two-hour

group interview where band

directors provide situational

questions and observe the

contenders’ problem-solving

skills and critical thinking

abilities.

Other than their many

in-season responsibilities,

Drum Majors are tasked

with many behind the scenes

duties as well. They serve as

instructors for their peers,

communicating between

groups within the LWMB,

“As Drum Majors, we’re

intricately involved with

the day to day objectives

and goals of the band,” Forlenza

said. “We meet regularly

with the directors to be

sure all band members know

where to be and when to be

there. We’re responsible for

keeping everything moving

in the right direction all the

time. In the past year, I’ve

learned to think about things

from all perspectives. All of

these responsibilities have

helped me mature and look

differently at my future. As a

result, I plan on pursuing a

degree in music education.”

The Dish

Sushi Nova brings its Japanese specialties to the southwest suburbs

Nuria Mathog, Contributing Editor

Orland Park’s Sushi Nova is

only a few months old — owner

Angela Liang and her husband,

Jeff Chen, opened the business in

late January — but already boasts

an impressive menu, with a large

selection of signature rolls, nigiri

and sashimi, and other types of

Japanese entrées.

Chen, a longtime sushi chef,

found inspiration for the restaurant’s

name in Japan.

“He knows everything about

sushi,” Liang said. “And then,

I love sushi, and we just wanted

to try having a business

here.”

One of the Sushi Nova’s most

popular rolls is the Mango Tango

roll ($14.95), an eight-piece roll

featuring shrimp tempura, cucumber

and cream cheese, topped with

mango, lobster salad, tomato, with

eel sauce and mango sauce, Liang

said.

Other frequently ordered specialties

are the Fire Dragon roll

($14.95) — which includes

shrimp tempura and cream cheese,

and is topped with salmon and

white tuna, and baked with special

sauce — and the Spicy 2 in 1

roll ($12.50), which takes its name

from the spicy salmon and spicy

tuna combination inside, comes

with avocado and is wrapped in

pink soybean paper and topped

with a dab of chili sauce.

Liang noted Sushi Nova also

serves several cooked sushi rolls

for diners who do not want to eat

raw fish.

“We also have very traditional

Japanese entrées, like hibachi,

teriyaki, fried rice,” she said. “If

there’s a customer, and they’re not

a big fan of sushi, they can choose

a kitchen entrée.”

Diners looking for unique drinks

to pair with their meals should be

sure to stop by the restaurant’s bar,

which offers items such as lychee

martinis ($7). Sushi Nova is also

offering a $3 draft Sapporo beer

special Monday through Thursday

for the next few months, Liang

said.

The Fire Dragon roll ($14.95, eight pieces), includes shrimp tempura

and cream cheese, and is topped with salmon and white tuna, and

baked with special sauce.

person for dinner, which includes

a selection of appetizers, salad and

soup, nigiri, and the restaurant’s

signature and regular sushi rolls,

along with seven vegetarian sushi

options. The dinner menu also

includes a choice of sashimi and

three types of dessert: mocha ice

cream, tempura banana and regular

ice cream, available in vanilla,

chocolate, red bean and green tea

flavors.

“We’ve got so many good reviews,”

Liang said of the restaurant.

“After the customers try it,

they like it. They all love it. And

we’re feeling so happy.”

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 Jake Blount

Jake Blount is a starting infielder on the

Lincoln-Way Central baseball team. He

committed to play baseball at Concordia

University next year. He was also on the

Knights’ boys basketball team.

Would you choose to be a pro

baseball or basketball player?

Ever since I was a little kid, my parents

had me in both sports. But I’d choose baseball

just because that’s the sport I’m better

at. I just have a better understanding of how

to baseball.

What’s the best part about the

baseball team?

Just how well everybody works together.

If somebody gets down, the whole team is

ready to pick them up. Nobody’s there to

bring a player down if they do something

bad. It’s a great atmosphere.

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve

learned from coach Mitch Nowicki?

That there’s a time in baseball to be serious

and times to have fun. If you’re serious

all the time in this sport, you’re going to get

really bored. So, he likes to bring the fun

times out, and it’s been a lot of fun playing

for him.

What’s your favorite memory so far

this season?

Probably the East game [on May 4] when

we won 1-0. This year when we played

East, we didn’t get over excited. Everyone

did their own part, and that was the reason

why we won. Plus, the fans and everything.

It was a great atmosphere to play baseball in.

Who is your favorite teammate?

I love all my teammates, but the one who

stands out is Brandon Bennitt because as

sophomores we were up on varsity together.

We just grew really close. He and I have always

been side by side the past three years.

As a shortstop, what’s a highlight

22nd Century Media File Photo

defensive play you dream about

making?

Probably a little pop fly over the third

baseman where you have to dive and catch

it. It displays a shortstop’s range. It’s a hard

play to make.

If you won the lottery, what’s the

first thing you’d buy?

A Corvette for my dad because it’s his

dream car. It’d be nice to give back to him

after all the hours and money spent on me

for baseball and basketball. Just to be able

to give back to him a little bit would be nice.

What’s your ideal splurge post-game

meal?

Steak and potatoes. Usually my dad will

grill it. It’s just my favorite meal. After a

game, I’d love to come home to that.

Who’s a pro athlete you’d like to

meet?

Javier Baez. He’s just got so much swag

to him in his game. He makes unbelievable

plays that you wouldn’t believe are possible

to make. I want to know how he does that.

If you could pull a talent from any

MLB player, what would it be?

Aaron Judge’s power. He can crush a baseball

like nobody else. It’s just fun to watch.

“Give East credit, those

boys played hard and did

very well shooting against

us,” Central coach Patrick

Shaughnessy said. “They

threw us off our game. We

couldn’t get it going on offense.

Ryan Burke had a great

semifinal on Friday, May 11,

they ran into a buzzsaw and

Actually things didn’t start

out too bad for West. Senior

Josh Carlson (2 goals) tied

the game at 1-1 on a goal

with 2:30 left in the first

the end of the first quarter

and was only up 5-3 when junior

Tyler Hubbs hammered

home a goal with 1:51 to play

in the fist half. But the Eagles

answered with a pair of goals,

including one by senior Joey

Jenkot (8 goals) with a second

in the second half.

16-11-2.

“I told the guys we were

and they said they didn’t

who noted that coaching this

team to the semifinals was

even happier for him than he

was when he played water

polo at Lincoln-Way Central

- graduating in 2012. “To win

like we did against Andrew

was a proud moment for me,

but even prouder for the players.”

Carlson, who will continue

his water polo career at Mckendree

University in Glen Ellyn,

agreed.

“They have the numbers

and the speed and we have

six or seven guys that play

the whole game,” he said.

“But I waited four years to

get to this [sectional semifinal

game]. I’m proud of that

and of what our team accomplished.”

Hastings, Allen, Brownrigg make state in tough sectional

Randy Whalen

Lincoln-Way Central and

Lincoln-Way West knew

it was going to be a tough

finished with state qualifiers.

second straight sectional

Thursday, May 10, in Lockport.

(9), Shepard (9) and Sandburg

(8) rounded out the

rest of the scoring. The state

finals will be held May 17-

19 at O’Brien Field at Eastern

Illinois University in

Charleston.

Central advanced a pair to

state this weekend. But what

a way to do it as Knight runners

took first and second.

Placing first was Merrigan

Allen (11:29.33) by eight

Bober, and Mackenzie

Brownrigg (5:25.19) placed

second behind fellow junior

Jenna Couwenhoven

(5:18.67) from East in the

1600-meter run.

Allen, a freshman, had

her PR in the race. She was

neck-and-neck with Bober

going into the final lap. Then

she turned on the jets to pull

away.

“I felt good at the end of

the race,” Allen said. “I felt

good about my training and

how hard I’ve worked and

I just pushed. Mackenzie

that pushed me in practice

and my other teammates

helped push me too.

“At the end of the race] I

was just thinking it matters

to go to state. I don’t know

what to expect at state. it will

be overwhelming, but it will

be so much fun.”

It will also be fun for

Brownwigg, who will make

her second trip to a state finals

meet. But first in Illinois.

“As a freshman I went

to state in the 4x800 relay,

but that was in Missouri,”

she said. “I moved here as a

sophomore, and this will be

my first trip to state here. I

like it here better. It’s more

fun, and I know everybody

here.

“It definitely feels good [to

go to state]. This [sectional]

wasn’t the time I wanted, but

I get to kick it with the pack

at state.”

Central coach Matt Smith

was happy with his teams efforts.

“Overall I was very

pleased with our performance,”

Smith said. “It

was great to have two girls

qualify for state. We had a

lot of PR’s and some others

come real close to making

it. But overall a great effort,

and I hope the girls do well

at state.”

The only state qualifier for

West was Tara Hastings with

a sixth place finish of 5-feet-

2 inches, which is the cutoff,

in the high jump.

“The last time I was here

I jumped 5 feet, and now

it was 5-foot-2,” Hastings

said of her sectional performance.

“The wind was at

my back and that helped me

a little bit.”

Hastings, who stands

5-foot-1, outjumped herself.

But she still didn’t know if it

was going to be good enough

competitors that I’ve had.

Knights nearly edge Griffins in semis, East takes sectional

Warriors lose early but

finish with most wins in

program history

RANDY WHALEN

Freelance Reporter

The Lincoln-Way East girls water

polo team got defensive.

In the process, the Griffins got a

sectional championship.

The Griffins played some

smoothing defense down the stretch

and slipped past Sandburg 9-7 on

Saturday, May 12 in the title game

of the Lincoln-Way East Sectional.

With their 20th win in the past

22 games, the Griffins (24-8) captured

their first sectional championship

since 2014 and fourth in school

history. They will face Naperville

North, which beat Naperville Central,

5-3, in the finals of the Metea

Valley Sectional. East has yet to win

a quarterfinal game, but will look to

change that as that game will be at

4:30 p.m. this Friday, May 18 at Stevenson

High School in Lincolnshire.

“We lost in the sectional championship

game last year [to Central],

and I wasn’t going to let that happen

again,” East senior Reis Parkinson

said. “I wasn’t going to let us give

up. I was going to make sure we

pushed through.”

Will loved that her young team

played well in a quick turnaround

against Sandburg. They had played

a late, hard-fought game the night

before against Central.

“We’re still young and learning

as we go,” she said. “Lincoln-Way

Central really wore us out [Friday]

night. That semifinal game was hard

to the end, and it was a late game,

and then we played this morning,

and I could tell that we were tired.

But the girls never gave up, and

that’s kind of been our theme all

season. I love this team, and they’ve

been so coachable and awesome,

and I couldn’t have asked for a better

sectional championship game.”

In the semifinals, on Friday, May

11, East turned in another great defensive

performance with a 10-4

victory over defending sectional

Lincoln-Way East in Frankfort. photos by laura burt/22nd century media

champion Lincoln-Way Central.

The game was tied 2-2 early in the

second quarter, but goals by sophomore

Kaitlyn Meagher and Hernandez

gave the Griffins a 4-2 halftime

lead. Sophomore Sierra Maze

scored for the Knights to open the

third quarter to close within a goal.

But the Griffins had the next five

tallies, two of them by Hernandez

(3 goals) to put the game away.

The game was a rematch of last

season’s sectional championship

game. There, the Knights rallied

down the stretch for an 11-10 victory

and advance to state for the fourth

time in six seasons. But they graduated

five seniors from that team.

“They did a great job,” Central

coach Pam Dettman said of East.

“This was a rebuilding year for us

as we only had two seniors. I’m

very proud of them. They’re hungry

and still want more. After the [East]

game they all said they can’t wait to

comeback next year.”

Claire Connors and Caroline

Heathcock, who scored the Knights

first goal at the end of the first quarter

against East, were the only two seniors

on this seasons Central squad.

“They played a really good game

and used their speed against us,”

said Connors, who was the starting

goalkeeper the past three seasons.

“I think all together we worked our

butts off and played really hard this

season. Since we gave it our all, I

can’t be too disappointed with how

it ended.”

Central (21-11) had opened the

postseason on Thursday, May 10,

with a 19-6 win over the Richards

Co-op team.

It was a fantastic season for the

Lincoln-Way West girls water polo

team. The Warriors easily set numerous

school records and finished

with a 19-8 overall record. Easily

their best in school history, since it’s

their first winning one.

Their season, however, came to

an abrupt end on Thursday, May 10

with a 9-6 quarterfinal loss to Bradley-Bourbonnais.

West had hoped

to reach 20 win and have a shot at

top-seeded Sandburg. Instead it was

the Boilermakers (16-12-2 final record)

who advanced. But they lost

to Sandburg 15-4 in a semifinal

game on Friday, May 11.

The game was tied at halftime.

But the Warriors had a hard time

scoring in the second half.

“I told them afterward that they

were going to be upset for awhile,”

West coach Eric Pavlacka said. “But

there are so many things to be proud

about.

“It just wasn’t our best game. Our

shots weren’t up in the corners. We

beat them early in the season (13-6

on March 12 at Bradley for West’s

first win of the season), but this

[quarterfinal game] is a credit to

Bradley. We won 11 in a row [between

April 9 and April 24] and the

kids did a great job of motivating

themselves.”

Six seniors graduate from this

seasons record-breaking squad.

They are Maeve Bauer, Emily

Brown, Alexandria Carter, Cailey

Janosek, Hannah Padgett and Katelyn

Piwowar. But there’s plenty

of talent excepted to return next

spring. Included in that is junior

while Lincoln-Way East’s Reis Parkinson defends her.

sensation Delaney Janosek, who

scored four of the six goals for the

Warriors against Bradley.

“With the four goals I scored 101

on the season,” Delaney Janosek

said. “I was so excited to get that

[milestone].”

But she certainly wasn’t excited

to see the successful season end.

“It was really a close game and

we went in confident,” Delaney

Janosek said. “We just didn’t play

that well. I’ll miss playing with my

older sister [Cailey Janosek, who is

going to run cross country at Carroll

University in Wisconsin]. I’ll miss

the amount of fun we had. We all

had an awesome time and I’m going

to miss all the seniors and the

fun we had.”

Lincoln-Way West’s Josh Carlson gets ready for what could’ve been his final swim off if the Warriors lost May 9 during a

sectional quarterfinal match against Andrew. Instead, Carlson scored five goals in route to victory. w

Warriors notch first postseason win in program history

James Sanchez, Editor

When Andrew beat Lincoln-Way

West at the Warriors’

pool 17-11 on April

12, West captain Josh Carlson

called it the worst team

game of the season. West

played again in the regular

season finale on May 4 and

lost by one. Carlson said

they played well, but not up

to the team’s potential.

But when the two teams

met again when it mattered

most May 9 in Frankfort in a

sectional quarterfinal matchup,

the Warriors chose the

perfect time for everything

to click. By way of a 12-6

score, the Warriors advanced

to the sectional semifinals

and more importantly won

their first postseason game in

program history.

“The past three practices

we worked on every little

aspect,” Carlson said. “We

watched film from all our

games against [Andrew]. It

paid off because we played a

phenomenal game. Our outside

shooting was on point.

It was no doubt the best

game as a team. Every single

player who was in the pool

for us played their best game

of the year.”

The team’s first playoff

win was one of many firsts in

its historic season. They also

beat Homewood-Flossmoor

and Stagg for the first time in

school history, and finished

the year with a winning record,

which has never been

done before either.

“In my mind coming into

this season, I thought there

was a lot of stuff we could

improve on, but there’s nowhere

to go but up,” coach

Jacob Bernard said. “Their

ceiling was set, but I wanted

to see how high they could

go past that ceiling. These

guys kept on proving time

and time again that they

wanted it, and they were

breaking records. … We

were just going non-stop,

and we kept riding that momentum

to sectionals.”

It took a lot from the defense

to notch this historic

win. The Thunderbolts,

which scored the aforementioned

17 goals on the Warriors

back in April, only

mustered two by halftime.

Goalie Brennan O’Brien was

a wall, as he finished with 19

saves – one of them came

from his head. O’Brien and

the defense even stopped an

Andrew possession when

West was down two men

from fouls.

“I really wanted it to win;

that’s it,” O’Brien said. “I

put my heart into this game

and was determined to win.”

“Brennan let up six goals,

but this was by for his best

game I’ve ever seen him

play,” Bernard added. “There

were stops where I thought

he wasn’t going to save them,

but somehow he leaned that

extra two inches and made a

stop. Our defense was building

momentum off of his

strength. Offensively, we

were getting breakaways because

of him, which against

Andrew, [Lincoln-Way] East,

Sandburg and [Lincoln-Way]

Central, those are teams that

are hard to do breakaways on.

It was a huge uplifting moment

for all of us.”

The Warriors led from the

start and never surrendered

their lead. The T-Bolts got

the game as close as 6-4 in

the third period after backto-back

goals, but Carlson

and Liam Hall answered

back with two straight to

maintain a comfortable lead.

The defense did the rest,

shutting out Andrew in the

final period to seal the win.

“This is the best feeling

right now,” Bernard said.

“To be honest, I feel like I

just won sectionals with that

win right there.”

It felt like that to Carlson,

too. A long fist pump

followed after each of his

scores, noting their importance

against a dangerous

team like Andrew that could

come back at any time.

“This means everything,”

Carlson said. “Before this

game, I was so nervous. I

wanted this so bad, and I’ve

been waiting four years to

get to this point – to get to

the second round – and it

feels amazing.”

Senior night inspires blowout over Minooka

Lincoln-Way is to

play Minooka again

Monday, May 21, in

playoff opener

RANDY WHALEN

Freelance Reporter

It’s been a special season

for the Lincoln-Way co-op

boys lacrosse team. Especially

for its seniors.

While this is the first season

that lacrosse has officially

been an Illinois High

School Association sport,

it’s certainly not the first year

the Lincoln-Way seniors

have played together. Many

of them have been playing

together since childhood.

Those 11 seniors were

honored on senior night,

which was held on May 8

at Lincoln-Way East. After

celebrating its seniors beforehand,

Lincoln-Way continued

its outstanding season

on the field with a 15-1 victory

over Minooka.

“That runs throughout

the program,” Lincoln-Way

coach Mike McCormick

said of the age groups playing

together. “We have our

juniors on down who have

all been playing together

for a long time. This [senior

night] is nice for the seniors

and their parents.”

The 11 seniors that were

honored are Luke Berger,

Marco Berto, Andrew Folgers,

Hunter Lash, Justin

Omarrah, Randy Rainbolt,

Grant Shafer, Gregory Shaw,

Ricky Smith, Justin Thorpe

and Erik Vallow.

“It was fun to be honored,”

Berto said. “This [few

hundred people] was the biggest

crowd we’ve had. We

had a lot of students come

out, and we definitely love

when people are here.”

That showed as Lincoln-

Way (16-1) came out and

scored just 48 seconds into

the first 12-minute quarter.

That was the first of three

goals by Smith, who also

added four assists. Also

scoring multiple goals for

Lincoln-Way were freshman

Ethan Sieb (3 goals), junior

Cam Daughterty (2 goals)

and Thorpe (2 goals).

Berger (goal), Berto (assist),

sophomore George

Burchfield (3 assists), junior

Vince Grunert (1 goal, 1 assist),

Lash (1 assist) junior

Camden McCardle (1 goal,

1 assist), Omarrah (1 goal),

junior Brendan Sullivan (1

goal), and Vallow (1 assist)

also contributed for Lincoln-

Way, which started the season

14-0 before losing 11-9

on April 28 to Wheaton-

Warrenville South.

“It’s always fun to play

with these guys,” Lash said.

“The fact that we’re an

[IHSA] program helps. The

recognition, the support, has

been great.”

Shafer was the goalie for

the first three quarters, and

junior Trevor Stanevicius

was in net in the fourth quarter

for Lincoln-Way.

“Honestly when you’re

playing goalie and standing

there, it’s just great,” Shafer

said. “That means are offense

is handling the ball.”

Indeed, Shafer and Stanevicius

didn’t have much to

do. Minooka, which defeated

Plainfield North 10-5 the

next day to improve to 4-10

on the season, averted the

shutout when senior Dawson

Nelson scored with 9:23

to play in the game. That

made it 14-1. Lincoln-Way

led 5-0 after one quarter,

11-0 at halftime and 14-0 after

three.

No matter what happens

when the postseason opens

next week, it’s been a great

season for Lincoln-Way.

“It’s crazy,” Thorpe said

of how fast the season has

gone. “I remember watching

the [senior night] ceremony

when I was a freshman on the

JV team. It flew by. But I will

remember the great chemistry

that we had and all the things

we did on and off the field.”

With some lacrosse youth

teams in attendance, there’s

some guys there that may be

echoing Thorpe’s words in

another five years.

“In the senior night pregame

ceremony we had

30-to-35 youth team players,”

said McCormick, who

coached for 10 seasons at

Marian Catholic before

moving over to coach the

Lincoln-Way club team last

season. “That’s great that

they have started the game

[at a young age]. And yes,

[the IHSA recognizing lacrosse

as a sport] is a good

thing. Now everyone is on

the same playing field.”

The final regular season

game was scheduled for 8

p.m. Wednesday, May 16,

against Neuqua Valley at

Lincoln-Way West. That is a

possible preview of the sectional

final as Neuqua Valley

is the top seed.

“We’ve all been playing

together since the fourth or

fifth grade,” Vallow reiterated.

“It went fast, but it’s

been nice to see it all come

together. We want everybody,

every student, to come

out and help us pack the

stands against Neuqua.”

The postseason opens

next week. Lincoln-Way,

which is seeded No. 2 in the

Lockport Sectional, is slated

to once again take on Minooka,

which is seeded No.

7. That game will be held at

6:30 p.m. on Monday, May

21, at Lincoln-Way Central.

If Lincoln-Way wins it will

advance to the semifinal at

7 p.m. on Wednesday, May

23. The sectional title game

is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.

Friday, May 25. Both the

semifinals and finals will be

at Lockport.

Even the top teams hit a

speed bump. The Lincoln-

Way Central softball team

did on May 8.

A day after clinching a

share of another conference

title, the Knights got plenty

of hits, but gave up more.

In fact they surrendered 18

and allowed a season-high in

runs in an 8-2 loss to Lockport

Township in a South-

West Suburban Conference

crossover in New Lenox.

The game was originally

scheduled for April 18, but

it was postponed due to the

weather. The loss broke a

10-game winning streak for

Central (21-3), which lost

to the Porters (23-5) for the

fourth time in the past three

seasons.

The same day the Knights

lost to Lockport, they did get

good news, however. That

was the fact they received

the top seed in a sectional for

the first time since 2007. The

Class 4A sectional will be

hosted by Joliet West. Lockport

received the third seed,

behind Lincoln-Way East.

Plainfield South, Plainfield

East, Lincoln-Way West,

Joliet West and Minooka

rounded out the top eight

seeds, respectively.

LISTEN UP

“This is the best feeling right now. To be honest, I

feel like I just won sectionals with that win right

there.”

Jacob Bernard – Lincoln-Way West boys water polo coach, after the

team winning its first postseason game in school history on May 9

“That seed was important,

no denying that,” said Central

coach Jeff Tarala, of getting

the top-spot and avoiding

East or Lockport until

the sectional title game. “But

last year Plainfield South

gave us everything we could

handle [the host Knights

won 7-6 in 8 innings] in the

regional title game. So you

always have to be ready.”

Unfortunately for Central

it was the Porters who were

ready in last weeks game. A

day after getting six hits in

a 10-2 loss at Lincoln-Way

East, they registered out that

many hits in the first inning

in scoring three runs.

But the tone was set in

the bottom half of the first

as Central loaded the bases

with one out. But Lockport

pitcher Erin Kleffman zoned

in and got a pair of first-pitch

pop-flies to end the inning.

That started a stretch where

the Knights left at least two

on base for the first five innings,

stranded 11 total in

that span and 12 total in the

game.

“Whenever I think of

Lockport, I know they can

hit it, and they did that,”

Tarala said. “It was just one

of those games where their

balls found holes, and we

didn’t help ourselves, since

we had [three] errors, which

is uncharacteristic for us.

That happens sometimes but

a lot of that is due to them

putting the ball in play, and

we didn’t do that. We’d get

the first few hitters on, but

Tune In

they’d shut us down, and

we couldn’t get that big hit.

Against these teams, the

mistakes are magnified.

“After the game I think the

girls thought I’d be mad, but

I was as positive as can be.

We have an extremely young

team [only two seniors in the

starting lineup against Lockport].

We got down 6-1 and

then settled in. It was only

a 2-1 game the rest of the

way.”

The Knights did end up

with 11 hits as eight players

had at least one hit. Sophomore

designated player Gianna

Niemeier (2-for-4) led

off the second with a home

run and freshman shortstop

Carly Alvers (2-for-4) led

off the seventh with a home

run to account for Central’s

scoring. Junior center fielder

Gabriella Gedville (2-for-4)

also had a pair of hits.

The Knights already

clinched at least a share of

the Red Division title in

SouthWest Suburban Conference

the day before on

May 7. That was in a 13-3

five inning victory over Andrew

in New Lenox. The

SWSC Red title is the second

straight and third in the

past four seasons for Central,

which has now won six

league titles since the conference

formed in the 2005-

2006 school year.

In the Andrew win, Alvers

was 3-for-3 with a home run,

three runs scored and two

RBI. Senior Kamryn Murphy

was also 3-for-3 with a

was a 3-run home run by

Platek got the win by going

the first four innings, allowing

one earned run and

striking out eight Thunderbolt

for-2, 3 R , 2 RBI) led the

Knights offense. Sophomore

Olivia Flinn had a three inning

no-hitter with four

strikeouts for the Knights

(22-3, 10-0).

“It should be our goal to

carry on that tradition of

excellence,” Tarala said after

the game of winning the

conference once more. “To

sustain that [conference title]

should always be our goal.”

The Knights will open the

postseason at 4:30 p.m. on

Tuesday, May 22, against either

No. 16 Bloom Township

or No. 18 Thornwood in the

semifinals of the Class 4A

Thornwood Regional. The

winner will play either No. 8

Minooka or No. 9 Andrew at

11 a.m. Saturday, May 26, in

the regional title game.
