City manager announces retirement

after 27 years with Lake Forest

Submitted Content

In Executive Session

following Lake Forest

City Council meeting

Monday, July 2, Lake

Forest City Manager Bob

Kiely notified the City

Council of his intent to

retire, effective Jan. 30,

2019.

“After close to three decades

of putting my community

first, it is now time

I shift my priorities and

put my family first,” Kiely

told the City Council.

“The City is in a strong financial

position and has a

world-class staff, an ideal

situation to be in when

you are searching for a

new city manager.”

Kiely was appointed

city manager in November

of 1990 and is the eighth

and longest serving city

manager in Lake Forest’s

history. During Kiely’s 27

years with Lake Forest,

he has worked with nine

mayors and more than 50

aldermen and women.

“I have had the privilege

of working with Bob

for many years… first as

an Alderman, and now

as Mayor,” said Mayor

Rob Lansing. “Bob is the

very definition of the City

Council-City Manager

form of municipal government,

having provided

outstanding leadership

and management for city

staff, and high-quality

support for hundreds of

civic-minded volunteers

who have served on city

boards, commissions, and

City Council.

“His accomplishments

are many, in guiding

Lake Forest to be one of

the most fiscally-sound,

well-planned, and welloperated

communities in

the United States. These

talents and Bob’s cheerful,

objective manner will

be missed, along with his

encyclopedic knowledge

of the Lake Forest community.

On behalf of the

citizens of Lake Forest, I

thank Bob for his excellent

service, and wish him

well in retirement.”

Kiely has helped guide

many enhancements to the

community including:

• Lake Forest becoming a

Home Rule community in

2004

• Renovating City Hall,

Dickinson Hall, Stirling

Hall, Elawa Farms, the

Deerpath Golf Course,

the Recreation Center and

Forest Park

• Purchasing and developing

Townline Park on

Route 60

• Constructing a new

LEED certified Municipal

Services Center and the

sale and redevelopment

of the former Municipal

Services Center property

known as Kelmscott Park

• Stabilizing and revitalizing

the business operations

at Gorton Community

Center

• Structuring countless intergovernmental

cooperation

agreements and operational

efficiencies

• Maintaining the City’s

AAA bond rating and the

lowest tax rate in Lake

County while continuing

to provide exemplary City

services

• Centralizing police and

fire dispatch

• Expanding/Rehabilitating

the lakefront Water

Treatment Plant

• Redeveloping the Grove

Cultural Campus

• Establishing the Lake

Bob Kiely, the Lake Forest

city manager, announced

his retirement on July

2. His retirement will be

effective Jan. 30, 2019.

Kiely indicated that he

made his announcement

at this time to ensure the

City Council has sufficient

opportunity to select

a quality replacement.

This timeline will permit

Kiely to initiate the Comprehensive

Forest Park Beach bluff fails after record rainfall

60-foot wide

mudslide closes

north beach

access road

Alyssa Groh, Editor

An unusual call came

into the Lake Forest Police

Department and the

Lake Forest Public Works

Department around 5 p.m.

on June 27, reporting a

large tree had fallen down

across the north beach access

road in Lake Forest.

When Mike Thomas,

the Public Works Director,

arrived on the scene,

there is only one way he

could describe what he

saw.

“Picture a landslide out

in California, and that is

exactly what happened

in an area of about 60

feet wide,” Thomas said.

“That entire portion of

the bluff collapsed onto

the north beach access

road and left a pile of clay

about 6 feet tall with trees

piled on top.”

Thomas said the failure

of the bluff was 100 percent

due to the heavy rainfall

in recent months.

During the Lake Forest

City Council Meeting

Monday, July 2, Thomas

224-554-9798

www.mjclarkinspections.com

visit us online at LAKEFORESTLEADER.com

explained to the City

Council what had occurred.

“I told the City Council

that May was the wettest

May on record, and June

was the wettest June on

record,” he said. “When

you have all that water,

essentially from Green

Bay Road east, all the

stormwater wants to drain

via the ravines and overland

to the lake. All of that

water is trying to make its

way to the lake.”

Since the bluff failure,

Thomas said the north

beach access road is

closed as it is unsafe and it

is unclear if the bluff will

fail again.

“We do not want people

down there,” Thomas said.

“If we receive a heavy

amount of rain, could the

joining part in that bluff

fail? Absolutely.”

Since the bluff failed on

June 27, surveyors have

been monitoring the bluff

for any movement after

rain fall. To ensure safety,

Thomas said Public

Works will keep a close

eye on the bluff after every

rain fall until the bluff

is repaired. They also have

measurement tools, called

inclinometers, along the

entire bluff and forest

park beach to measure any

further movement.

In the meantime, the

City is working with AE-

COM and John Keno &

Company to come up with

a design proposal to repair

the bluff, which will be

reviewed at the Lake Forest

City Council Meeting

on July 16, according to

Thomas.

The contractors are

working to propose a plan

with a design approach,

which Thomas said is

needed when you need to

save some time.

The repairing of the

After crews responded to a report of a fallen tree June 27 on the north beach access

road in Lake Forest, they found a mudslide that was more than six feet tall and 60

feet wide. PHOTOS SUBMITTED

bluff will take is a lot of

re-grading and bringing

the portion of the bluff to

a 2 to 1 slope, which will

stop the bluff from sliding,

Thomas said.

The City already

planned to do work on the

ravine that is adjacent the

north beach access road

due to erosion, but will

now try to combine both

projects into one.

The cost of the projects

are unknown at this time,

but will be reviewed at the

next City Council meeting

on Monday, July 16.

clean up, the bluff on the

Spirit, service displayed at Fourth of July Parade

Harrison Raft

Editorial Intern

America severed its

ties from Great Britain

by signing the Declaration

of Independence on

July Fourth, 242 years

ago. Since that historic

moment, American citizens

have celebrated their

independence watching

colorful bombs bursting in

air, and parades that commemorate

and celebrate

the brave men and women

that continue to preserve

our freedom.

The Village of Lake

Bluff hosted its 108th annual

Fourth of July Parade

that stretched 1.1 miles

and featured more than

100 parade floats in downtown

Lake Bluff.

Friends and families

colored the sidewalks of

Lake Bluff with red, white

and blue clothing as they

found their seats in a sea

of people eagerly awaiting

the floats that would sail

the street.

“The best part (about the

Lake Bluff Fourth of July

Parade) is watching all the

families that come out here

and get to enjoy the day

and a small part of America,”

said David Belmonte,

the Lake Bluff chief of police.

“It’s just a very unique

event that takes place here

in Lake Bluff with the

whole community being a

part of this. [The Fourth of

July celebration] just adds

to the atmosphere of this

being a great day.”

Resident alike came out

for the parade to celebrate

our freedom and our country.

“I just like the Fourth

of July, seeing everyone

in spirit and supporting

the country, I think it’s my

favorite holiday,” Emily

Gorczynsky said. “It’s entertaining

and fun to see

everyone come together

and celebrate, and when

the Army members were

coming, everyone was

clapping and saluting, it

was really nice.”

The Fourth of July has

always been a time for

the community to come

together and celebrate.

Houses along the parade

route hosted viewing parties

while they grilled out.

“The whole town comes

together, you hang out with

your friends and whoever

has a house on the parade

route,” said Will Paschke,

a Lake Forest resident.

The parade floats ranged

from: the Wells Fargo carriage

drawn by four horses,

bringing the crowd back to

a time before motorized

vehicles.

Following the clicks

and clacks of the horses

hooves, car engines roared

over the crowds applause

as they drove down the

road.

Tamborine bands that

marched down the streets

beating their drums to the

sound of the trumpets,

along with dancers that

moved with the rhythm of

the music.

Deb Dintruff, the president

of the Fourth of July

Parade and a committee of

15 others work year-round

to plan for the parade.

“We meet the day after

the parade and start planning

for the next one,“ she

said. “It’s really fun and

it’s a great group of people,

so it really is a joy.”

Lake Forest City Council

Six-story Hyatt Place hotel approved in Conway Park

Todd Marver

Freelance Reporter

Visitors will soon have

a new hotel to stay at in

Lake Forest.

The Lake Forest City

Council unanimously

voted for an ordinance approving

design aspects for

a new Hyatt Place hotel

on Field Drive in Conway

Park during its meeting

Monday, July 2. The City

Council also voted 6-2 to

approve a limited-term financial

incentive package

for the hotel.

The hotel will be built

on a 9.5-acre parcel and

will be six stories and 60

feet tall. The first floor will

include meeting rooms,

a fitness center, pool and

restaurant, and the second

through sixth floors will

include a total of 158 hotel

rooms.

“We’re all in agreement

that this is a very good

project and very good for

the community and something

that we should support,”

Alderman Ray Buschmann

said. “We have a

development that we all

agree will help the city and

profit for the city.”

Per the incentive agreement,

the developer, Janko

Group, will receive as

much as $2.8 million in tax

incentives. The agreement

also prohibits the City

from authorizing incentive

payments to other hotels

for four years from the effective

date of Sept. 30,

2018. No incentive payments

can be made during

the four-year period to a

competing hotel located in

Lake Forest and lying west

of a line, which is 1,000

feet east of the eastern

boundary of the Waukegan

Road right-of-way.

The estimated 20-year

tax revenue to Lake Forest

from the project is approximately

$7.9 million.

“This is a great deal,”

Alderman Jack Reisenberg

said. “It provides significant

tax revenue to us. The

incentives are entirely appropriate

for what we’re

doing. Quite frankly, I

want to give the exclusivity

to them so that they can

go to the bank and get the

deal they want.”

Alderman Prue Beidler,

who cast one of the two

votes against approving

the incentive agreement,

was opposed to the exclusivity

clause that prohibits

the City from making

incentive payments to

competing hotels from

Sept. 30, 2018-Sept. 30,

2022.

“I think this is a terrific

project in the right place,”

she said. “I’m completely

on board with the necessity

of an incentive package,

but I don’t like this one.

The thing I don’t like about

this one is the exclusivity.”

Alderman Melanie

Rummel, who cast the second

vote in opposition to

the incentive agreement,

felt the exclusivity clause

was unnecessary.

“I don’t think that government

is in the business

of putting in place restrictions

on the free market,”

she said. “Whether or not

a hotel comes in is still

totally in our hands. We

can still be the final determinant

of whether another

hotel comes in there.”

Alderman Michelle

Moreno shared the concerns

on the exclusivity

clause with her colleagues

that voted against the incentive

agreement, but despite

that she voted to approve

it.

“I favor this,” she said.

“There are aspects of it I

don’t like. I don’t like giving

exclusivity to anybody,

but I do think we have

to do this. I do think the

Janko Group is the right

group to do it. I think staff

has done a phenomenal

job negotiating this, so I’m

very happy with it.”

Alderman Tim Newman

favored the exclusivity

clause because he felt it

would be more than four

years for another comparable

hotel to be up and

running.

“I’m comfortable with

the exclusivity arrangement

because of how long

it takes for projects of this

size to get through our

process,” he said. “If it

helps the developer secure

financing because it locks

up a site, I think that’s a

quid pro quo that I can live

with.”

THE WILMETTE BEACON

Wilmette woman arrested

for felony burglary at two

different residences

Ashley A. Luksik, 33,

of Wilmette, was charged

with three felony counts

of residential burglary following

alleged incidents

on Friday, June 29, and

Sunday, July 1, in Wilmette

Wilmette Police responded

to a residential

burglary in which the victim

reported that the offenders

had just left his

home at approximately

10:52 a.m. June 29 in the

800 block of Leyden Lane.

The victim was sleeping

in his bedroom and was

awakened by the female

offender, later identified

as Luksik, allegedly rummaging

through his personal

belongings on his

bedroom floor. The offender

is a former acquaintance

of the victim but did not

have permission to be in

the home. Luksik left the

resident when asked to by

the victim.

Wilmette Police responded

to a residential

burglary in which the victim

reported that the offender,

later identified as

Luksik, had just fled his

home at 11:41 a.m. July

1 in the 900 block of Romona

Road. The victim related

that at approximately

11:10 a.m., he returned

home from a weekend trip

and discovered that one

of his basement windows

had been broken out and

another door leading to the

basement had been forced

open. As he was inspecting

further, he observed Luksik

allegedly walking near

several items stacked up

in the basement window

well that had previously

been in his basement. The

THE GLENVIEW LANTERN

Village president rebuts

claims of financial

mismanagement

At the outset of the

Monday, July 2 Glenview

Village Board meeting,

Village President Jim Patterson

delivered a detailed

rebuttal to that morning’s

Chicago Tribune editorial

headlined “How to avoid

Glenview’s party-hearty

embarrassment.”

The editorial was based

on a review by the paper’s

Pioneer Press satellite

publications of 2014-17

expenses on village-issued

credit cards of “roughly

$540,000 in purchases that

included parties, dinners

and travel” and alleged

that there was “a lack of

transparency documenting

it.”

“I want to assure everyone

that the Board of

Trustees has been a good

financial steward for the

Village of Glenview,” said

Patterson, who was incorrectly

identified as Glenview’s

mayor in the editorial.

“Board members do

care and they are passionate

about how every dollar

is spent. Every purchase

must have a receipt. We

are very transparent.”

In the village president’s

opinion, lumping

three years of purchases

to produce the “roughly

$540,000” total creates the

misleading impression that

spending is excessive.

According to Patterson,

all purchases were included

in the budgets for each

of the years. He said credit

cards have to be used for

online purchases because

it is the only method of

payment accepted and that

training events for staff

members entail transportation

expenses, meals and

overnight hotel stays. He

broke down several of the

expenditures that the editorial

criticized.

THE GLENCOE ANCHOR

Three-year Glencoe trustee

to resign

Citing relocation, Village

of Glencoe Trustee

Trent Cornell announced

this week he’ll resign from

the board of trustees on

Aug. 31.

Glencoe’s village code

requires that all trustees

reside in the corporate

boundaries of the Village

of Glencoe, and Cornell

and his family are moving

to Long Grove, about 30

miles northwest of Glencoe.

“My family loves Glencoe,

and I really enjoyed

being a trustee, so we’re

sad to leave,” Cornell told

The Anchor via email.

“It’s been a great experience

interacting with my

neighbors and the dedicated

staff we have at the

Village to keep improving

our town, and I hope more

younger residents continue

to get involved and give

back.”

Cornell, 46, was elected

to the Village of Glencoe

Board of Trustees in April

2015 and according to

the Village, in that time

served on the Community

Grants Committee and

was integral to the development

of the most recent

Strategic Plan.

To Cornell, the most rewarding

accomplishment

was uniting Glencoe organizations,

especially, he

said, because of Illinois’

vast government network.

“I’d have to say I’m

most pleased about something

we began when I

was on the Glencoe Park

District that continues to

grow, and that is shared

services and cooperation

between the local government

entities in Glencoe,

and also with neighboring

municipalities,” he said.

“It’s idiotic that Illinois

has so many units of local

government. Since that

isn’t likely to change, the

next best thing is to share

services and leverage buying

power.

First residency class graduates from Lake Forest Hospital

Submitted by

Northwestern Medicine

Lake Forest Hospital

The first medical residency

program for the

Northwestern Medicine

Lake Forest Hospital is

graduating its inaugural

class, prompting a

time for celebration, not

just for the young physicians,

but for the program

itself.

The Northwestern Mc-

Gaw Family Medicine

Residency at Lake Forest

Hospital welcomed its

first class of physicians

in 2015, but the work to

create the program dates

back several years before

that, said Deborah S. Clements,

MD, FAAFP, chair

of Family and Community

Medicine at Northwestern

University Feinberg

School of Medicine. Clements

sees the residency

program as another example

of Northwestern

Medicine Lake Forest

Hospital’s expanding participation

with academics

and research.

“Their graduation is so

exciting because the residents

really established

Northwestern Medicine

Lake Forest Hospital as

a community academic

health center,” Dr. Clements

said. “It was a huge

transition for everyone

here. You can develop a

curriculum and bring on

the residents, but changing

the culture is a leap,

and we were successful in

doing that. The residency

program creates a culture

of inquisitiveness and

learning.”

The residency program

boasts unique aspects.

Residents participate in a

Spanish immersion program,

and complete clinical

rotations in three locations

with different types

of patients — inpatients,

at Northwestern Medicine

Lake Forest Hospital;

outpatients, at Northwestern

Medicine Grayslake

Outpatient Center; and

economically disadvantaged

patients at Erie

HealthReach in Waukegan,

a Federally Qualified

Health Center (FQHC)

that is partially funded by

Northwestern Medicine.

For resident J. Mica

Guzman, MD, MS, that

diversity was key.

“I honestly don’t know

of many other residency

programs that have two

different clinical sites in

addition to an inpatient

hospital experience,”

Guzman said.

He noted that the group

was able to follow patients

through their medical

process, whether it was

inpatient, outpatient, or

even in some cases, hospice.

That breadth of experience

was evident by the

career paths that the graduating

residents chose to

pursue, Clements said.

Two residents have accepted

positions as hospitalists,

one will work

at an FQHC in Indiana,

and another will return

to her home community

in central Illinois to practice

family medicine. Two

more have accepted fellowships

and another will

remain with Northwestern

Medicine as a family

medicine physician.

Clements is also proud

List of Graduates:

• Anna Balabanova,

MD, will remain at

Northwestern Medicine

with a fellowship at

Northwestern Medicine

Osher Center for

Integrative Medicine.

• Latoya Epps-Scott,

MD, has accepted a

hospitalist position in

Georgia, near her family.

• Ryan Golden, MD,

will be joining the

From the Editor

Do your part to save the environment

Alyssa Groh

alyssa@lakeforestleader.com

I

should start this off by

saying I have always

cared about the environment,

but was never

someone who went out of

my way to find recycling

or yelled at those who

don’t recycle.

Growing up, we always

had multiple garbage cans.

One for our everyday garbage,

one for recycling,

one for pop cans (I lived

in a family that LOVED

pop), and one for paper.

From day one, I was

always taught to recycle.

As I became an adult

I always recycled, but

again, never went out of

my way to find recycling.

Since living in my own

apartment, I have become

more and more aware of

what can and cannot be recycled.

My boyfriend and

I have dedicated an entire

garbage can for recycling.

But, helping the environment

is not only about

recycling.

Growing up, we did

not have the cleanest tap

water, so for the majority

of my life I always

drank water out of a water

bottle. I was so spoiled by

filtered water, I hated the

taste of tap water and, until

about two weeks ago,

refused to drink tap water.

I would rather go thirsty

to drink tap water. Yes,

I know that is a little

extreme, but it was true,

until recently.

Not only did I only drink

bottled water, but I am

attached to my Contigo

water bottle that keeps my

water nice and cold all day

long. So, every single day

I pour at least four plastic

water bottles into my Contigo

water bottle.

After moving into my

apartment and really getting

focused on recycling,

I realized how much of

my recycling bin was

filled with plastic water

bottles. And it dawned on

me. I am using a reusable

water bottle, but filling it

with water out of a plastic

water bottle, hurting the

environment and endangering

our animals in

the ocean.

I decided to grow up

and have stopped using

water bottles. Now, I can’t

give myself too much

credit because I still hate

the taste of tap water. So,

I went out and bought a

Brita water filter and fill it

with water and then pour

that into my water bottle.

There are so many small

things we can be doing in

our daily lives that help

the environment and in

Letters to the Editor

Keep Lake Forest beautiful

and safe

On Monday, July 16,

the City Council will vote

whether or not to allow a

carwash, gas station and

mini market at the dangerous,

congested, narrow

intersection of Everett

and Waukegan roads

(Death Valley). To allow

this to happen will pose

threats both real and aesthetically

to our town.

The reasons to oppose are

many: air, noise and light

pollution, increased congestion

and disrespect to

a house of worship and an

ugly, noisy entrance to our

community whose reputation

as safe, serene and

desirable will be a thing

of the past. Property values

will diminish (no one

wants to live in the vicinity

of these assaults to our

senses) and the taxpayers

in all four wards could

likely be coerced to make

up the difference with increased

personal property

taxes.

Mr. Alexander Stuart

is the owner of this narrow,

vacant parcel on

the Southeast corner. For

more than three years he

has sought a zone variance

to circumvent existing

sensible zoning

requiring a small retail

or service business to satisfy

the recurring needs of

neighbors. Our city council

has wisely not allowed

that to happen. So many

options are available to

Mr. Stuart but he is obdurate

in seeking only Waterway.

Why?

Please show your love

of community and your

right as a citizen to get

his answer. Attend the

City Council meeting

Monday, July 16 at 6:30

at City Hall, 220 East

Deerpath. For more information

Walking tour explores the early resort era of Lake Bluff

Gina Grillo

Freelance Reporter

The Lake Bluff History

Museum hosted its first

docent-led walking tour of

the summer, Camp Meeting

Cottages and Country

Houses, a 90-minute

neighborhood jaunt, inviting

participants to take a

stroll back in time on Sunday,

July 8.

Nan Caldwell, a Lake

Bluff History Museum

board member and tour

docent, said it’s important

for small towns like Lake

Bluff to have a history museum

that serves to collect,

archive and preserve the

history of the town.

The tour explored the

Camp Meeting Association,

established in 1875,

and the early resort era of

Lake Bluff.

“The city of Chicago

with its stockyards, steel,

coal and meat-packing

industries, was a sooty,

dirty and smelly place,”

Caldwell said. “(It was a)

place where people wanted

to get away for the summer,

and often men would

send their families to Lake

Bluff for the entire summer,

and then take the train

in to spend weekends with

their families.”

The Lake Bluff Camp

Meeting was started by a

group of Methodist Ministers

and businessmen

who purchased 100 acres

in Lake Bluff with the intent

to develop a summer

resort and religious camp

meeting.

Caldwell said the Camp

Meeting Association was

fashioned after the Chautauqua

movement, which

was started at Lake Chautauqua,

N.Y. in 1874, creating

assemblies organized

around the four pillars of

arts, education, religion

and recreation.

“The Lake Bluff Association

under this guise

also offered gatherings and

educational programs held

under a huge tabernacle

(built for this purpose),

lectures, concerts, art lessons

and discussions, all

promoting the edification

of the mind, body and

soul” Caldwell said.

The camp environment

began with sturdy tents

and evolved into cottages,

eventually leading to the

incorporation of the Village

in 1895, according to

Caldwell.

Local mystery novelist,

Deborah Rine attended

the tour with her husband

Larry Rine, and said she

thought going on the tour

might be a good way to

find some inspiration for

her writing.

“A tour like this one

helps to give depth and

historical perspective to

your understanding of the

town you are living in,”

Rine said. “Knowing more

about the stories of the

past helps you understand

the present.”

According to Caldwell,

Lake Bluff is full of history

involving important

residents, that include

such notables as social reformer

and women’s rights

activist, Frances Willard,

author Frederic Nelson

Litten, and Congressman

Bob McClory.

Lake Bluff History Museum

Vice President Pam

Russell said in addition

to regular displays and

special exhibits, upcoming

tours will include Crab

Tree Farm: Arts & Crafts

Collection, Camp Meetings:

Chautauquas, Artists

and Anarchists and a

Ghost walk this fall.

GO Lake Bluff announces

winners of kids coloring contest

Submitted by Lake Bluff

Park District

In conjunction with

GO Lake Bluff’s ongoing

commitment to get and

keep the community moving

— all in the name of

health — the Lake Bluff

Park District held a coloring

contest.

Children of all ages

were encouraged to draw

a picture of themselves

doing or eating something

healthy.

The contest was held at

the Lake Bluff Farmers

market on June 15 and at

the June 23 Community

Walk and Fest.

It was hard to pick a

winner from the many creative

entries, but the judges

had to keep the health

theme of the contest first

and foremost, eliminating

some very talented artists.

Each of the three winners,

will receive a $10

gift card, compliments of

Suzy’s Swirl.

This drawing, of a young girl playing soccer, was one of

three winners in the GO Lake Bluff coloring contest.

This drawing was also a winner displaying getting

exercise by walking a dog.

Traditional Greek plus contemporary spin equals success at Avli Restaurant

Eric DeGrechie

Managing Editor

Louie Alexakis lights

up when he’s talking

about food and his family’s

homeland of Greece.

The Winnetka resident

has combined these two

passions into the highly

successful Avli Restaurant,

a North Shore dining

destination, for almost a

decade.

Located at 566 Chestnut

St. in Winnetka, Avli

Restaurant, is just mere

blocks from his home.

Alexakis has been

around the culinary world

his entire life. His parents,

Greek immigrants, ran hot

dog stands in Chicago for

more than 50 years and

were the oldest concessionaire

in the Chicago

Park District at one time.

Other family members

have run Greek eateries

throughout the city for

many years.

Since the 1990s, Alexakis

has owned several restaurants

in Chicagoland

himself, and he opened

Avli in 2009.

“For the past 25 years,

all I’ve thought about is

how I can innovate Greek

cuisine,” Alexakis said.

Recently, a group of

22nd Century Media editors

stopped into Avli to

talk with Alexakis and try

some of his dishes.

We started out with a

watermelon salad ($7/

small and $12/large) that

is a summertime staple at

Avli.

The refreshing salad

features watermelon, red

onions, toasted almonds,

fresh mint, manouri

unique taste, is also used

in a cheesecake dish and

found grilled in a walnut

and arugula salad.

The watermelon salad

was accompanied by a

beet salad ($8 and $13)

made with local Midwestern

red and yellow beets,

along with spinach, arugula,

pistachios, Greek

goat cheese, extra virgin

olive oil and truffle oil.

Take one bite of any of

Alexakis’s dishes and the

amount of thought that

went into it is quickly

evident with each bite.

The food also pops on

the plate with a medley of

colors accentuating what

is being served.

“What we like to do

here is take something

that is very traditional

and Greek, but maybe just

make the plate a little bit

more contemporary,” said

Alexakis, who will be

opening two restaurants

in Chicago — a Greek

restaurant in Lincoln Park

in August and another one

in River North soon thereafter.

According to Alexakis,

grilling artichokes is very

popular in Greece and an

artichoke-based dish ($8)

is often ordered at Avli.

The artichokes, grilled

to perfection, are served

with capers, lemon zest

and extra virgin olive oil.

Next, we tried a beef

kabob ($21) made with

chargrilled beef tenderloin,

described by Alexakis

as “mini filet mignon,”

herbs, spices and lemonoregano

rice.

We also sampled the

broiled branzino ($29), or

Mediterranean sea bass.

Fish from Greece is

flown in to Avli twice a

week.

“The only way you can

get that fish better is to eat

it in Greece,” Alexakis

said.

The branzino had more

of a classic, buttery taste

than most white fish and

its freshness was definitely

noticeable.

We were served some

traditional Greek-style

chicken with the chicken

riganati ($16), or baked

chicken, with extra virgin

olive oil, tomato, herbs

The watermelon salad ($7/small or $12/large) features fresh watermelon, red onions,

toasted almonds, fresh mint, manouri cheese with a rosewater and olive oil dressing.

and lemon-oregano rice.

Alexakis often travels

to Greece for new culinary

ideas, but he also

finds it useful to travel to

other countries and see

how they serve Greek

food. For example, he has

under his employment an

Australian Greek chef.

For dessert, we tried

one of his dishes called

Ice Cream Indulgence

($7) that consists of vanilla

ice cream, with a touch

of cinnamon, chocolate

halva and chocolate ice

cream with sour cherry

preserves.

“I want to offer Greek

food that is maybe a little

bit more playful and

contemporary than what

people have grown to expect,”

Alexakis said. “I

think if anything, it’s the

right complement to the

current style of Greek

food. It’s important to appeal

to everyone.”

BASKETBALL

From Page 30

by Hanson once again,

the Scouts went on a 9-2

scoring run. Fellow rising

seniors Michael Pasquella

and Crawford Bolton put

the Scouts up 46-38 with

1:31 left in the game.

Hanson led all scorers

with 17 points, while

Pasquella paced the Scouts

with 10.

“The kids played well.

I think they were really

excited to play,” LaScala

said. “I thought they did

a great job of sharing the

ball and a pretty good job

of rebounding.”

For Hanson, he felt the

game was a good test for

the team.

“It was a good close to

our summer,” Hanson said.

“It was a good culmination

to everything we’ve been

working on as a team.”

In the second game,

New Trier was able to use

a huge third quarter to pull

away from Marshall, winning

big 71-56.

To end a day filled with

fun and competition, LaScala,

along with other

members of the LFHS basketball

family and athletic

office, took to the grill and

cooked up hamburgers

and hotdogs right outside

the competition gym in

the senior parking lot, allowing

all four teams to

break bread and relax after

a long and tiring month of

June summer camp.

“It is really cool to be able

to interact with kids who

aren’t necessarily from the

same background as you,”

Hanson said. “It’s also interesting

to see how much you

have in common whether its

basketball or in general.”

The addition of New Trier

and Marshall was welcomed

by LaScala as he is

looking forward toward the

future and potentially expanding

Net Gain’s reach

to more communities.

“It was great having two

more teams this year, it’s

always great to meet new

people,” LaScala said.

“Next year, we might try

and expand it to an eightteam,

four-game shootout

somewhere.”

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Holly Malnati

Holly Malnati is a 2018

alumna of Lake Forest

High School and played

for the girls water polo

team.

How did you get

started playing water

polo?

I was recruited to play

by all of the seniors on my

swim team, actually. Water

polo isn’t the most popular

sport in my school so I

think the swimmers get the

underclassmen to get started

early, before you know

what you’re getting into.

Why did you love

playing water polo?

Aside from just my team

specifically, I just like the

game and the competitiveness

of it. The only other

sport I play is swimming. I

like the idea of a team sport

and that you have to work

with a group of people to

create a common goal. You

have to participate to help

the team.

What is the most

challenging aspect of

the sport?

The most challenging

part was what I kind of

said before, with what

was my favorite part. You

have to learn that you can’t

do everything yourself.

Changing levels from junior

varsity to varsity, you

have to learn you can’t do

everything yourself. You

don’t always have to be

the person to make that

goal, an assist is just as important

as making a goal

yourself.

What is the best

advice coach Anna

Colletti gave you this

season?

She didn’t technically

say this out loud, but we

kind of learned it from

her actions. It’s just learning

how to walk away and

separate yourself from

something that didn’t go

your way. [Knowing that]

it’s just a sport and a loss

doesn’t define you as an

athlete. It’s okay to lose

every once in a while.

What is your best

memory from senior

year?

We performed at the

Vatican as a choir, so we

performed at St. Peter’s

Basilica during mass during

Holy Week. It’s still so

surreal being a musician

and that’s as high as it gets

for choirs.

If you could travel

anywhere in the

world, where would

you go?

I would go to Amsterdam,

because I want to see

the Anne Frank museum

there.

What is one thing on

your bucket list you

want to do?

Go cage diving with

sharks. My dad has just

22nd Century Media File

Photo

always told me skydiving

was dangerous but I think

cage diving would be kind

of cool. They have enough

technology to make it safe

but it’s also really thrilling

at the same time with the

sharks.

Who is your favorite

artist or band right

now?

I listen to a lot of music.

Right now, I’m listening to

a lot of George Ezra. He

has good summer music,

it’s somewhat mellow and

upbeat at the same time.

What is your guilty

pleasure?

Definitely Broadway

musicals. I guess if you

look at me you wouldn’t

see it, but I’m a huge fan

of them. If you pass me in

the car that’s what I’m listening

to.

What is your favorite

musical right now?

Right now, I would

probably say “The Color

Purple” but my all-time favorite,

I would have to say

“Dear Evan Hansen.”

LFC installs Wilson at helm of women’s ice hockey program

Submitted by Lake Forest

College

Jennifer Wilson was

hired as just the fourth

head coach of the women’s

hockey program.

Lake Forest College Director

of Athletics Jackie

Slaats announced Wilson’s

addition to the program

June 26, according to a release

from the school.

Wilson takes over as head

coach after longtime coach

Carisa Wahlig, who was

with the team for 13 seasons,

steps down to coach

for Brown Unveristy’s Division-I

program.

Wilson comes to Lake

Forest from NCAA Division

III Buffalo State, a

member of the Northeast

Women’s Hockey League.

The Bengals posted a 13-

11-2 overall record in

2017-18, Wilson’s first

season at the helm of the

program. Buffalo State

was 9-6-1 in conference

play and earned a home

game in the inaugural NE-

WHL playoffs by placing

second in the standings

behind perennial national

power Plattsburgh State.

Prior to her time at Buffalo

State Wilson spent a

pair of seasons as the head

coach at ACHA Division I

Robert Morris University

in Chicago and associate

head coach at the high

school level at Loyola

Academy. She helped

lead Robert Morris to the

Eagles’ first appearance in

the conference tournament

semifinals in four years

and Loyola to a state title

and runner-up finish.

Wilson’s coaching career

began at NCAA Division

III St. Michael’s in

Vermont, where she was

an assistant for two seasons.

She helped lead the

Knights to their first postseason

appearance in the

program’s 12-year history

and was selected as an intern

coach for the U15 National

Development Camp

in St. Cloud, Minn. Wilson

remains active with USA

Hockey as a certified level

4 coach and has additional

experience as a talent evaluator,

instructor, and coach

for several high-level state

programs and showcases.

Wilson began her collegiate

playing career at

NCAA Division III Manhattanville

College, where

she was part of the 2006

ECAC-East Championship

team that posted a 23-

4-1 record. She played her

final two years at Robert

Morris, where she served

as an assistant captain and

amassed 49 points on 22

goals and 27 assists in 68

games. The Manitowoc,

Wisc., native was also

one of the state’s top high

school players and was selected

to Team Wisconsin

for the Chicago Showcase.

“I would like to thank

Jackie Slaats and her athletic

staff for this amazing

opportunity to be part of

the Forester Family and it’s

tradition of excellence,”

commented Wilson. “I am

humbled and ecstatic to

be back home in the Midwest

and looking forward

to continuing the success

of the Forester women’s

hockey program.”

“I am extremely excited

to add Coach Wilson to our

staff,” Slaats said. “She has

excelled at every stop during

her coaching career and

I look forward to Lake Forest

College being added to

that list. Our program has

established itself as one of

the strongest in the west region

and I am confident her

energy and passion for the

sport will help continue and

enhance its success.”

team that was 20-9-0

overall and finished second

in the Northern Collegiate

Hockey Association standings

at 15-3-0 in league

play. Lake Forest has posted

three consecutive 20-

win seasons and reached

the championship game

of the Northern College

Hockey Association playoffs

in four of the last five

years with a pair of NCAA

Tournament appearances

during that span.

Foresters promote former cross-country, track assistant to top spot

Submitted by Lake Forest

College

Ciara Kissane was promoted

to the head coach position for

both the men’s and women’s

cross-country and track programs.

The promotion was announced

by Lake Forest College

Director of Athletics Jackie

Slaats June 27, according to a

release from the school.

Kissane will replace Dan

Simpson, who is now the head

cross-country and assistant

track and field coach at North

Park University.

Kissane was an assistant for

both programs in 2017-18 and

helped lead the Forester crosscountry

teams to top-half finishes

at the 2017 Midwest Conference

Championship Meet.

The men (3rd) and women (5th)

track and field programs. Photo Submitted

matched the best league placing

in program history and five

athletes were named All-MWC.

The College added track (distance

events only) to its slate of

varsity programming and had a

conference title in one event and

added 10 other Top 10 finishes

during its first appearance at the

MWC Championships.

Prior to coming to Lake Forest,

Kissane was the head crosscountry

coach and assistant track

and field coach for a year at

Coe College. Her cross-country

teams combined to post 10 new

entries on the Kowawks’ alltime

performance list and, in the

classroom, earned the United

States Track and Field and Cross

Country Coaches Association

All-Academic Team Award for

having a GPA over 3.10.

Kissane is a graduate of the

University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh

and she added a master’s

degree in sports management

from Florida State University in

2013.

“I am looking forward to

leading the Lake Forest cross

country and distance track

teams and would like to thank

Jackie Slaats for giving me

this opportunity,” Kissane said.

“This is an exciting time as we

enter the second year of varsity

track competition and look

to build on our past success in

cross country.”

A search to fill Kissane’s vacated

assistant coach position

will begin immediately.

“We had them read all of

Telander’s articles to show

them what was going on in

the west side of Chicago,”

LaScala said. “It’s night

and day. Lake Forest and

west Chicago are on opposite

sides of the spectrum,

and we thought it would be

a great idea to bring everyone

together and help out

the community.”

In preparation for the

Net Gain fundraiser, members

of the LFHS basketball

spread awareness

around town and spurred

more interest from their

family and friends.

“We went out and hung

up signs and tried to explain

the cause to get the community

involved,” Tommy

Hanson, a Lake Forest rising

senior forward, said. “It

was cool to see how receptive

they were.”

The day of the event, Net

Gain T-shirts and raffletickets

were sold to help

raise as much as possible.

When it came to the actual

game, the Scouts were

able to avenge last year’s

close loss to Orr.

In the end it was Scouts

that edged out Orr, 50-44,

but it was Orr that came

out strong and aggressive.

Momentum favored

the Spartans early, two

Scout turnovers led to two

consecutive rim-rattling

dunks at the other end. Orr

Academy led 9-4 midway

through the first quarter.

The Scouts responded

with poise and good fundamentals,

passing their

way through the Spartan

press and patiently moving

the ball on offense.

Lake Forest tied the

game at the end of the

opening period at 16

apiece, led by 8 first-quarter

points from Hanson,

Lake Forest took control

of the game in the second

quarter behind its stifling

defense and offensive execution.

The Scouts started

the second frame on an

11-0 scoring run attacking

the Spartan pressure and

holding Orr scoreless the

first four minutes of the

quarter. The Scouts would

eventually take a 31-23

The Spartans did not go

3. Rich Telander.

The Chicago Sun-

Times reporter

shed light to the

struggles Orr

Academy players

faced growing up

on Chicago’s west

side while trying to

have a successful

season.

Jack Brush never expected

to play football in

college.

The 2018 graduate of

Lake Forest High School

was the Scouts go-to kicker

and punter for the last

two seasons.

However, Brush started

off feeling unsure about

his role as kicker.

“Coming into high

school I wasn’t really

much of a kicker,” he said.

But with practice, and

the help of the Scouts

coaching staff, by his junior

year Brush had grown

comfortable and confident

kicking for the Scouts. By

the end of his junior season

Brush had complete

28 of 30 point-after attempts

and was 3-for-3 on

field goals.

“Coming into high

school I had no idea

I would end up playing

football in college,”

Brush said. “I only really

decided I wanted to play

in college during my junior

year.”

Brush credited Lake

Forest coach Chuck Spagnoli

with helping him

realize he could go farther

with his football career.

Spagnoli would have

coaches from both Division-I

and Division-III

schools come in and talk

to his players. After that it

only took Brush one visit

to DePauw University to

fall.

know that was the right

college for him. It was

then that Brush started

taking the necessary steps

to make himself known to

recruiters.

“My parents said it

might be a good idea to

keep on playing if I really

wanted to,” Brush said. “I

just ended up starting to

look at colleges and signing

up on the recruiting

websites.”

Brush created a profile

on Next College Student

Athlete’s recruiting

website and it didn’t take

long for Brush to get a

response from his No. 1

choice. DePauw was the

only college Brush applied

to and when he was

accepted he knew everything

as falling into place

nicely.

“I knew of DePauw, so

when they sent me something

I thought it was pretty

awesome that they sent

me that,” he said.

Brush won’t be the only

Scout on the Tigers roster

either, former Lake Forest

teammate Andrew Athenson,

a defensive back,

played for the team in

the 2017 season and current

teammates Matthew

Barigazzi, also a defensive

back, will join Brush at the

school this fall. And having

those two familiar faces

will make the transition

much easier, Brush said.

Brush has spent most of

the summer following De-

Pauw’s workout program,

that was provided, and

working on his kicking

skills. Currently, Brush’s

accuracy is consistent at

45 yards, but he’s pushing

to get comfortable with

50-yard kicks. Last season,

Brush used a block

to kick off and part of his

summer training is getting

used to kicking off the

ground.

Brush also added that

incoming freshman do

see playing time, just on

DePauw’s junior varsity

squad, which was appealing

for him.

“That will help me out

getting a feel of what college

football is like,” he

said. “I’m hoping that I

can get better with my

range with field goals and

just kicking the ball further

in the kickoffs.”

Listen Up

“It is really cool to be able to interact with kids who

aren’t necessarily from the same background as

you.”
