Highwood family hosts birthday party for mom

Erin Yarnall, Editor

Not just anyone can

make it to be 100 years


It has to take a great bill

of health, and a bit of luck

as well.

Highwood resident Cristina

Lenzini has both.

She celebrated her 100th

birthday on Saturday, Sept.

1, with her family and

friends accompanying her

at a birthday party.

“We had people come

in from the east coast,

the west coast, the Italian

coast and the midwest

coast here,” Cristina’s

daughter-in-law, Pat Lenzini

said. “We had people

from Italy who came to

visit for her party. Family

from California, Arizona,

New York and Virginia.”

Cristina was born in Italy,

and lived with her family

in Modena, a city in the

north of the country. While

living in Italy, she married

her husband, Amideo Lenzini,

and had three children,

Albert, Rachele and John.

In 1956, the Lenzini

family immigrated from

Modena to Highwood.

For two years, the couple

saved up $10,000.

Then they borrowed another

$10,000 from a cousin,

according to Pat Lenzini.

After securing $20,000,

they bought the home that

Cristina currently lives in,

and has lived in for nearly

60 years.

Cristina’s family hosted

her party at the Highwood

Boccee Ball Club — so

Cristina could not only celebrate

with her extended

family, but with the community

that she has been

a part of for more than six


“The party [was] in

Highwood, obviously,

where she’s spent all of

her life since coming over

from Italy,” Cristina’s

daughter Rachele Wright


In recognition of the

long-time resident, Highwood

mayor Charles Pecaro

declared her 100th

birthday as Cristina Lenzini

Day in Highwood with a

mayoral proclamation.

“Cristina Lenzini was

born, raised and married

in Italy, venturing across

the Atlantic Ocean with

her three children to join

her husband in America

to start a better life,” the

proclamation reads. “Making

ends meet was no easy

task, and Cristina worked

cleaning several medical

offices and worked at My

Favorite Inn where to this

day she speaks fondly of

how many tortellacci and

tortellini she made with

her friend Mary Blondi.”

The party was organized

by Cristina’s family, including

Wright and Pat


“She’s been an amazing

cook, and an amazing

mother, as well as just an

amazing overall person,”

Wright said.

Pat Lenzini agrees that

Cristina is an “amazing

cook,” and said she loves

having her mother-in-law

teach her to make different

Italian recipes.

“I find her phenomenal,

inspirational, a living

legacy,” Pat Lenzini said.

HP beauty business celebrates 42 years


Submitted by PAWS Chicago

Butternut is a four-year-old

beauty who was originally

adopted as a kitten but

was recently returned due

to no fault of his own. This

recent change has been

hard on Butternut, so he will need a home that will

be patient as he comes out of his shell. However

his true personality is very sweet and friendly, and

his future family will be very lucky to have him in

their home. Butternut, along with many dogs and

cats, is available for adoption at the PAWS Chicago

any inaccurate beliefs

Thirty-two students and

10 staff from Highland

Park and Deerfield High

Schools accompanied actor

and humanitarian Gary

Sinise and 40 World War II

veterans to The National

WWII Museum in New

Orleans as part of the Gary

Sinise Foundation’s Soaring

Valor program.

The program regularly

travels WWII veterans to

tour the museum with select

trips including high

school students to join so

they can learn about the

experience through those

who lived it. The Foundation

joins with the museum

and American Airlines to

make these trips possible.

Gary Sinise is a Highland

Park High School

alumnus and actor, wellknown

for his roles as

Lieutenant Dan in “Forrest

Gump,” Astronaut Ken

Mattingly in “Apollo 13”

and Detective Mac Taylor

in “CSI: NY.”

On Sept. 4, participants

and their families attended

a kick-off dinner where

students had an opportunity

to meet the World War II

veterans for the first time.

Deerfield High School

Senior Katerina Tchilinguirov

and Highland Park

Ingram provided the opening

remarks, speaking of

the importance of our veterans

and the impact they

have had on each of their


Students, staff and the

World War II veterans departed

from O’Hare International

Airport Wednesday,

Sept. 5. While in New

Orleans, program participants

engaged in three

exciting and busy days

planned by the Gary Sinise

Foundation. The highlight

of the trip was a visit to

The National World War II

Museum, which was built

to honor WWII veterans.

The Foundation also sponsors

a historian to expand

the documentation of oral

histories which are then

preserved for future generations.

Students participating

in the Soaring Valor program

were selected from

a pool of passionate applicants.

Students who

studied World War II or

who recently completed

an approved social science

course were eligible to apply.

All students will be

asked to share their experiences

with their respective

school learning communities

later in the school year.

IL House candidate opens office in HP as campaign ramps up

Matt Huppert

Freelance Reporter

In a First Street office

filled with snacks, sign-up

sheets and freshly ordered

yard signs, Bob Morgan,

Democratic candidate

for State Representative,

IL-58th greeted his staff,

volunteers and supporters

at the grand opening of

his campaign headquarters

Aug. 27 in downtown

Highland Park.

The Morgan Campaign’s

open house comes just

over two months before

the election, as both he and

Republican candidate Rick

Lesser ramp up their volunteer

and fundraising efforts

before Nov. 6.

In his opening remarks

to the crowd, Morgan said

the event symbolized the

moment when efforts on

all fronts would need to

be heightened to prepare

for the final stages of the


“This is actually the turning

point,” Morgan said.

“This is the point in which

we go into full hyperdrive

towards the election on November

6th. This is where

we knock twice as many

doors, three times as many

doors. This is where my

time becomes every minute,

[asking] what can we

do to reach the voters to get

out the message ‘why our

values our at stake in this


In addition to encouraging

volunteers to signup

for canvassing shifts,

make donations and take

yard signs, attendees were

asked to bring canned

goods and toiletries for local

food pantries in anticipation

of the school year,

Campaign Manager Allie

Bob Morgan, a candidate for State Representative IL-58,

speaks at an open house Aug. 27. MATT HUPPERT/22ND


McRaith said.

Morgan said they have

been seeing a surge of energy

from supporters in the

community who have been

galvanized by the outcomes

of the 2016 election

on both Springfield and


“People are energized

who have never really

been active before politically,

and people feel this

is a really important and

momentous time to decide

the future of the state

and the future of the federal

government,” Morgan

said. “You just have

people who really haven’t

been energized in a long

time and are seeing that

now is the time.”

Along with the intent of

highlighting food insecurity

in the district with the

canned and toiletry drive,

Morgan said the event coincided

with the start of the

school year because backto-school

efforts tends to

remind people November

is just around the corner.

Moreover, Morgan said

they have seen an uptick

in youth involvement and

organizing in conjunction

with the participation of

young people nationwide

in the gun safety debate

following the Parkland

school shooting.

Morgan said he hopes to

connect with voters on a

number of issues, including

reducing healthcare premiums,

working on pension

reform, and passing a balanced

budget while protecting

community needs

such as public education

and human services.

Republican Candidate

Rick Lesser said his campaign

is boosting its efforts

as well to reach voters before

the election.

“We are doing everything

we can to put up yard

signs, knock on doors, attend

events, and communicate

with voters to make

them aware that Illinois

can be saved if only they

will turn out and vote for

change,” Lesser said.

Those proposed changes,

Lesser said, include

enacting term limits for

House representatives,

balancing the budget and

dealing with the public

pension crisis head-on

while protecting the retirements

of teachers, police

officers and firefighters.

Lesser said he has been

encouraged by the participation,

knowledge and

support he has seen from

the community during the

campaign so far.

Letter to the editor

School Daze in August

Schools re-opened on

August 20th this year.

Let that sink in—August

20th!! Really, have we lost

our minds here in Highland

Park? What is going

on? August is the hottest

month of the year and

we are sending our kids

into buildings without air

conditioning. We need to

get back to a schedule, as

most of us of a certain age

remember, where school

starts after Labor day. It is

just common sense which

doesn’t seem to be very

common these days.

This has gone too far.

NSSD112 needs to look at

this schedule. It is time for

us to take summer back.

We need to use some

out-of-the-box thinking on

this one to pick up about

ten days on the school

calendar. Perhaps the new

superintendent can show

some real leadership skills

and mandate to his staff to

just get it done. Let’s not

allow all of the reasons

that we can’t do it to get in

the way.

Please don’t tell us that

putting air conditioners in

all of the buildings is the

answer. That would probably

be way too expensive

of a solution for a selfinflicted

problem and not

particularly fair to the taxpayers.

The reality is that there

are only a handful of extremely

hot days, which

ironically come in August

and early September, that

AC is needed. In my mind,

it doesn’t pass the cost/

benefit test with the public’s


A few areas where days

could be picked-up include

institute days. Can’t

they be scheduled before

the school year or done

on Saturdays, as those of

us in the dreaded privatesector

can attest to, that we

must work on from timeto-time.

I love our teachers.

They are dedicated, professional,

selfless and

care for our kids as if they

were their own. My guess

is that, if asked, they may

give up a few Saturdays

for the overall benefit of

everyone. It is in their best

interest since working in

oppressive heat conditions

are not ideal for them as

well. The rest of the world

works about 50 weeks per

year with two weeks vacation.

With two months off

in the summer, it doesn’t

seem to be extraordinary

to give up a few days during

the school year for a

pretty good cause.

Conferences-once again,

we lose two days for these.

Can they be scheduled in

the evenings or on a Saturday?

Most families have

two working parents so it

would be more convenient

for them not to have to

miss work during normal

business hours.

Christmas holiday-why

not end classes a few days

before Christmas (e.g. December

22 or 23) and then

start classes back up on January

2nd? Two full weeks

off at this time of year

seems a bit gratuitous, especially

when weighed against

baking our kids in August.

Or, add a day or two in

June. I do recall going to

school on Flag Day (June

14) as a kid. While some

may argue that it is hot

then, and I agree, but perhaps

not as bad as August.

Something to think about.

I don’t claim to have all

the answers, but I think for

the sake of our kids, we

should start the conversation.

August 20th is just

too early. Let’s challenge

the NSSD112 administrators

and school board to

figure out a way to save

summer for the current

Happy Grandparent’s Day

Erin Yarnall


This week, I had the

pleasure of writing

about Highwood

resident Cristina Lenzini,

who turned 100 on Sept.

1. Hearing about Lenzini,

and the plans her family

made for her 100th birthday

reminded me of my

own family.

When I was 10 years

old, in 2003, my family

and I took a drive up to

La Crosse, Wisc. for my

great-grandfather’s birthday

party. He was turning

100 years old.

One of my clearest

memories of that day was

seeing his birthday cake

carried out with 100 burning

candles on top of it. It

looked like an inferno.

I was never incredibly

close to my great-grandpa.

He was 90 when I was

born, so it’s not like we

had much in common.

But it makes me feel all

the more fortunate for the

relatonship I have with my


My grandpa John

comes over for dinner at

least once a week, and I

spend every Sunday at

my grandpa Poppy and

grandma Jackie’s house,

primarily lounging in their


While I’m incredibly

different from my

grandparents in so many

ways, it’s also fun to

spend time with them

and see the small details

of their personality that

resonate in mine. I think I

share my grandpa Poppy’s

excitement over anything

historical, and also a

tendency to be a bit of a

hoarder. I share my grandma

Jackie’s passion for

adventure, and our ability

to be extremely opinionated

(although we’re often

on differing sides). With

my grandpa John, we’re

both stubborn, and we

both love our family with

all of our hearts.

For those of you that are

fortunate enough to have

your grandparents around,

make sure to check in

with them, especially if

they’re celebrating an

important birthday like


Happy birthday,

Cristina! For more about

In Memoriam

William H. Halper

William H. Halper, 92,

of Highland Park, died

Aug. 24. He was born in

1925 and grew up on the

north side of Chicago.

He graduated from Senn

High School. He went on

to graduate from Grinnell

College in Iowa.

He returned to Chicago

to join Myer Halper, his

father, in Halper Publishing

Company. Myer started

the company in 1930, in the

middle of the great Great

Depression, creating two

publications that catered

to the clothing industry.

“Made to Measure” magazine

was devoted to men’s

custom clothing, featuring

editorial and advertising

for tailors. The second publication

was called “The

Agent” and provided apparel

manufacturers with

contacts and sourcing information.

Halper spent his adult

poor connection?


life running the company.

The company had offices

on Adams street in downtown

Chicago. As men’s

clothing went to a readyto-wear

model, tailoring

houses needed to survive

and turned to uniforms

as an industry niche. He

smartly pivoted “Made To

Measure” magazine to focus

on uniforms and for decades

the publication was

considered the “bible of the

uniform industry”.

He disarmed people with

his warm smile, self-deprecating

humor and subtle

wit. He was often described

as a sweet man, though he

could be sarcastic as well.

He loved to read. He

liked nice clothes. He often

reached out to “feel the

hand” of the fabric or texture

of a garment lapel or

sleeve, all the while complimenting

the wearer. He

was expressive and proud

of his children and grandchildrens’


Halper and Joan moved

to Highland Park in 1958

in what was meant to be

their starter house that became

the family home for

50 years.

He and Joan spent 20

years wintering in Naples,

Fla. and loved their time

there. He was an easy man

to like and indeed, everyone


He was a devoted husband

for 64 years to Joan

(Litton), whom he survives.

He is also survived by his

children, Jon (Deirdre)

and Kathy (Rick); grandchildren,

Maddie, Isabelle,

Will, Henry and Dylan.

Services are private.

Richmond T. Bell

Richmond “Dick” T.

Bell, 75, formerly of Highland

Park, died Sept. 2 at

Centegra Hospital in Huntley.

Bell was born Sept. 11,

1942 in Highland Park, the

son of Richmond and Winona

(Johnston) Bell. He

graduated from the University

of Wisconsin and

was a true Badger Fan. He

married Esther R. Ettinger

on Nov. 13, 1966. He

worked as a high school

psychologist for School

District 214, Elk Grove

Village until his retirement

in 2001. He was very active

in the Sun City Community

where he and Esther

have lived since 2001.

He was a clarinet player

with the band, an avid tennis

player and also headed

up the Spiritual Health

Club of Sun City. Rich

had a passion for camping,

traveling and sports. Every

Spring they would travel

to Golf Shores, Alabama

to play tennis. He was a

devoted husband, father

and grandfather who will

be missed by all who knew


He is survived by his

wife, Esther; his children,

Mark (Peggy) Bell, Jeremy

(Willa) Bell; grandchildren,

Brennan, Matthew, Marin

and Amelia. He is also survived

by his two sisters,

Nona (Glenn) Wilson, Ruth

(Phill) Frankenberger; and

brother-in-law, Jack Gibbs.

He was preceded in

death by his parents; and by

his sister, Francenia Gibbs.

The family would like

to extend a special thanks

to all of the doctors, nurses

and staff at Centegra that

took such great care of him.

For that they are grateful.

The Art Center features

biennial exhibit on cancer

Carly Gerber

Freelance Reporter

The Art Center Highland

Park (TAC) hosts its

sixth biennial art exhibition

“Voices and Visions,

Standing on the Bridge between

Health and Disease”

that highlights art using

cancer as the subject.

“It is the most empowering,

positive, beautiful

exhibit,” said Caren Helene

Rudman, the curator

at The Art Center Highland

Park, or TAC.

The featured art was

created by cancer survivors,

caregivers, and anyone

who has been touched

by cancer or the fear of

it. According to Rudman,

she was looking for

art that helps people find

meaning and put into context

how pain and suffering

can lead to empowerment

and healing.

As someone who’s been

impacted by cancer, Rudman’s

work is exhibited,

as well.

Rudman tested positive

for the BRCA1 genetic

mutation, which makes

her more susceptible to

breast and ovarian cancer.

The protocol was to have

a hysterectomy before

40-years-old, so Rudman,

who’s now 54, had the

surgery when she was 39.

According to her pathology,

she had pre-cancer

in her fallopian tube and


“It completely saved

my life,” Rudman said.

Two weeks after the

opening of the first “V&V”

exhibit, Rudman’s sister

was diagnosed with ovarian

cancer. Her sister had

prophylactic surgeries,

but her pathology came

back positive for cancer.

Unfortunately, she passed

away from the disease.

Sadly, three years later,

Rudman’s mother passed

away from breast cancer.

In her mixed media

work exhibited in “V&V,”

Rudman used her mother’s


“The whole idea for

me is that I’m taking her

journey and I’m reappropriating

it and I’m reconstructing

it in terms of my

own memories and what

I remember of these stories,

or her trips, or what

she has shared with me,”

Rudman said.

Ken Probst, who’s

shown his artwork before

at “V&V,” will be featuring

two paintings, “Wakeful

Dreams I” and “Wakeful

Dreams II.”

In “Wakeful Dreams

II,” there are seven figures

that overlap and intersect

into one figure. His paintings

are inspired by his

wife’s battle with stage IV

breast cancer.

“There is this camaraderie

that women have

that have cancer,” Probst

said. “They join together

and they fight it together.

They get great strength

from that together.”

Merrilee Hepler is exhibiting

her work for the

first time ever. The three

pieces she’s showing were

created after her father

was diagnosed with acute

myeloid leukemia. He

was given 45 days to live.

The print making, according

to Hepler, allowed her

to process her father’s

illness, so she could be a

support system for both

him and her mother.

Working with the idea

of memory, Hepler’s

“Walking the Line” is a

split screen. At the top left

side reads “Vida,” meaning

life in Spanish. Below,

depicts her father walking

away. On the other side is

a tic-tac-toe game, which

Hepler and her father

played together during

her childhood. The game

displayed is a scratch. Nobody


At every “V&V” exhibit,

a survivor or someone

who’s passed away is honored.

In 2014, Rudman’s

sister was honored. At the

last exhibit, her mother

was. At this year’s exhibit,

TAC is honoring artist

Jackie Sabath.

Knowing her personally

and that she was going

through cancer treatment,

Rudman asked Sabath if

she had artwork Rudman

could include in the 2016

“V&V” exhibit.

“I would say about 15

hours later I get a call,”

Rudman said. “And, she

says, ‘Caren, I woke up at

7 in the morning. I got to

Blick by 8, right when it

opened. I bought supplies

and I painted this painting.

I’m not sure you’re

going to like it.’ But, she

sends me a picture of it.

And, it’s phenomenal.”

Rudman picked up Sabath’s

artwork and helped

her write her artist statement.

As Rudman was

installing the exhibit,

Sabath’s daughter called

and said that her mother

was taking a turn for the

worse. Sabath never got to

see the piece hung in the

gallery. After a lifetime of

making artwork, it was the

last piece she ever made.

“Walking the Line” by

Merrilee Hepler was

inspired by her father’s

battle with cancer.

“Her Story is Ours” by Carole Helene Rudman is on display

at The Art Center through Oct. 4. Photos submitted

Sabath’s family helped

TAC set up The Jackie

Sabath Exhibition Fund,

which, according to Rudman,

will help fund TAC

exhibitions, public education,

and outreach. Recently,

the Boys and Girls

Club of Lake County was

able to visit TAC because

of the fund.

While Sabath’s paintings

and sculptors are not

for sale, most of the pieces

exhibited are.

In addition to “V&V,”

TAC visitors can visit the

Lecture Gallery to see

exhibit “Women of Courage:

A CWCA Homage

to Andrea Harris.” Harris

was an avid, prolific artist,

according to Rudman.

Though she didn’t start

marking artwork until she

was in her 50s, her art

career took off. After battling

ovarian cancer, she

passed away.

As a member of the Chicago

chapter of the Women

Caucus for Art, TAC is

displaying Harris’ artwork

as well as the work of her

fellow WCA members.

The exhibition’s title is

inspired by a series Harris

created, “Women of

Courage,” which depicts

women who have embodied

courage and nurtured

those qualities in others.

In memory of Harris,

her husband founded Andrea’s

Hope Foundation.

The foundation makes

grants to hospice care providers

and other healthcare

providers for women

battling ovarian cancer. In

addition, the foundation

offers grants to advance

ovarian cancer research

and education.

According to Probst, “I

think it’s really important

that there is this venue,

this show, and what Caren’s

doing in that it allows

people to talk about it

[cancer]. It allows you to

participate in it.”

The exhibition will be

at TAC through Oct. 4th.

Nathanson, who was

“Run,” “All We Are” and

“Come On Get Higher”

which turned into a cover

of “You’re the One That

Customer is king at Glenview’s Goode & Fresh Pizza Bakery

Erin Yarnall, Editor

When Jay Phillips decided

to open his own restaurant

in 1983, he didn’t

have a lot of competition.

After working for various

restaurants for nearly

a decade, Phillips opened

Goode & Fresh Pizza Bakery

on Waukegan Road in






room design by STUDIO MRS

M-TH 9-6

F-SAT 9-5

SUN 11-5


“When we opened up,

there were only two other

pizza places,” Phillips


Now, he says, there are

14 in Glenview alone.

In the 35 years since

he’s opened shop, other

pizza places have come



(847) 835.2400



and gone, but Goode &

Fresh remains.

Both Jay Phillips and

co-owner Kris Phillips believe

their success lies in

the quality of their food,

and their attention to their

service they have with customers.

“We’ve withstood for a

Goode & Fresh Pizza Bakery’s thin crust pizza ($15.49

for a 12-inch pizza with two toppings) can be served

with a variety of toppings. Alyssa Groh/22nd Century

long time,” Kris Phillips

said. “We’ve always taken

a lot of pride in the quality,

value and service we have

given our customers.”

Part of the service that

they give to their customers

is being accommodating

toward people with

allergies or other food intolerances.

“Because we’re an independent

restaurant, we

have the option or opportunity

to change our menu

when we feel that we need

to or want to,” Jay Phillips


“We have gluten-free

items,” Kris Phillips said.

“We can make vegan

items. People can bring in

their own cheese. We’re


Kris Phillips believes

the restaurant’s ability to

accommodate their menu

items for whatever needs

customers may have sets

them apart from other restaurants

in the area.

“We really do everything

we can to accommodate

what people need and

what people want,” Kris

Phillips said. “We try to

make everybody happy.”

The two co-owners also

attribute a lot of their success

to the support they

receive from their family

and employees.

After Jay Phillips suffered

a stroke in 2015, his

six children stepped up to

work more frequently in

the restaurant.

“All of my kids work or

have worked here,” Kris

Phillips said.

They also have an employee

who has worked

at the shop for nearly 30

years, and another one

who has been there for 25.

“We’re so fortunate to

have such an incredible

staff,” Kris Phillips said.

“They’re the key to it.”

A group of 22nd Century

Media editors stopped

by the shop recently to

sample some of their

menu items.

We first sampled the

namesake of the restaurant

— its pizza.

But when ordering pizza

at Goode & Fresh Pizza

Bakery, it’s important to

be specific.

The restaurant serves up

pies in a variety of ways

— thin crust, stuffed, in

calzones or pan crust party


Each pizza can also be

topped with more than 20

vegetables, nine meats,

four options for cheese

and six different sauces.

The first pizza we

sampled was a thin crust,

topped with spinach and

tomato ($15.49 for a 12-

inch pizza with two toppings).

The crust was

crunchy, and was complemented

by the toppings

and sauce.

We also sampled a

cheese stuffed pizza ($6.99

for a 6-inch), which lived

up to its name. Mozzarella

cheese was oozing out of

the pizza, and was topped

with a thick tomato sauce.

The restaurant also

serves subs and sandwiches,

and we were able

to sample the spinach

sub ($6.50), which was

packed with black olives,

red onion, tomato, mushroom,

mayonnaise and

freshly chopped spinach

baked with mozzarella


The spinach sub is one

of the two original sub

sandwiches on the menu

— along with the vegetarian

sub ($6.50). The two

sandwiches have been on

Jay’s original menu since

opening the restaurant.

The restaurant offers

take-out and catering services,

and with a menu as

large and customizable as

theirs, there’s something

for everyone.

fun when I’m stressed.

What is the most

challenging part of the


The most challenging

part of the game for me is

coming up against someone

else that is really fast

or can dribble really well

because that’s not something

I’ve quite mastered


What do you hope the

team will accomplish

this season?

As a team, obviously,

we’d like to win conference

and maybe get far in

state because I think that

this is one of the best team

[HPHS] will have together

in a while. Last year we

struggled a little bit.

What is your personal

goal for the season?

Personally, I’d just like

to improve at the position

I’m playing right now. I

don’t normally play center

back, so there are still

a few things I’m working

out but I’d like to get that


Last year you played

on the same team as

your brother, Justin,

what was that like?

It was a lot of fun, honestly,

because that’s the

only time I’ll get to play

with my brother. We did

get into a fight over a few

points but it’s nice because

had the same playing style

so we knew what we were

doing the whole time. We

played right next to each


Who is the funniest

guy on the team?

I’m going to say Ronin

[Moore]. He’s always

messing around in practice

or in the games. It’s always

good to kind of take

a break and kind of laugh.

Who is your favorite

professional athlete?

Paul Pogba because

he’s on my favorite soccer

team, Manchester United.

If you won a million

dollars, what would

be the first thing

you’d buy?

Maybe a new car for one

of my parents.

Costa Rica trip teaches players soccer ‘language’

Brittany Kapa, Sports Editor

In most countries, soccer

acts as an international language.

The sport breaks down cultural

barriers to bring players

closer together.

That was evident this summer

when Highland Park’s

boys soccer team took a group

of players from the sophomore,

junior and varsity levels on an

eight-day trip to Costa Rica.

Costa Rica’s lush landscape

and natural features provided

a stark contrast from Highland

Park’s mix of suburban

and urban landscapes and gave

the players an experience they

won’t soon forget.

“I know for many of them

this was the first they had been

outside the U.S.,” Highland

Park Coach Blake Novotny

said. “For one person it was the

first time they had ever been on

an airplane.”

This is the eighth trip in total

the boys soccer program has

been on. Other destinations

have included Italy in 2015,

Germany and Holland in 2012,

Brazil in 2010, Spain in 2008

and England and Scotland in

2006. The trip to Costa Rica,

which lasted from July 20-28,

was Novotny’s fourth with the

soccer program and included

stops playing three different

club teams in the country and

chances to see another side of

Costa Rica.

“When we were traveling

in Costa Rica there was a lot

more access to the nature,”

Novotny said. “There is a lot

more emphasis on sustainability,

on respect for their environments

there. I think the kids

got a little sense of that.”

While there, the group of 14

players played a match against

a U16 team for the country’s

No. 1 club, Saprissa.

“We played well enough that

we tied,” Novotny said of his

team’s performance. “The other

team outplayed us and they

clearly controlled the play.”

Costa Rica during a training session in July for an overseas trip. Photos Submitted

The Giants were able to convert

on one of just two scoring

opportunities, connections

with the post from Saprissa’s

players keep the Giants

in the game and a deadlock


“I think they were a little

frustrated that they didn’t beat

us,” Novotny chuckled. “The

players on the other team were

on their way to professional

contracts and such. You could

see by the level of play that

they were moving on.”

A favorite part for Luke Illes,

a junior center back for

the Giants, was watching Saprissa’s

professional team play

that same night follow HPHS’s

tilt against the U16 team. The

experience has yet to compare

for Illes.

“This environment was crazy,”

he said. “Being out of the

country, in this kind of environment,

with people who are

so into the game is amazing.”

Varsity players Chris Mateos,

Ronin Moore, Matt Holleman

and Mason Kimbarovsk

were all able to make the trip,

and for Mateos, who had never

flown on a plane before, it

was an experience he wouldn’t


“I’m glad I actually got to

go,” he said.

Illes, Mateos and Novotny

agreed that the trip did more

than just open their eyes to soccer

outside the United States.

The trip allowed for the five

varsity players to bond prior

to the season start, and that has

already helped the Giants.

“There are some bonds and

connections that weren’t there

before hand,” Novotny said. “I

also kind of got to build a little

bit on what is our defense.

“A major part of what ends

up being the varsity defense

was with us there and so it was

nice to be able to play around

with and put together what that

group would look like when

we were there.”

Communication was a big

takeaway for Mateos during

the trip.

“Communication is key, you

have to communicate to become

better and be respectful

to teammates,” he said.

HPHS is 3-1-1, as of press

time, on the young season. A

position they were not in last


The Giants adventure was

also one that was a long time

coming for 18-year HPHS assistant

coach Alex Conejo,

who was born in Costa Rica.

Conejo was raised in Turrialba

for a time before moving closer

to San Jose and eventually to

the U.S. in his early 20s. A trip

to Costa Rica was something

Conejo and Novotny discussed

in the past, at great length, so it

was serendipitous to see it all

come together.

“I tell play my players this,

[soccer] is an international language,”

Novotny said. “You

show up somewhere with a

soccer ball, in pretty much any

place in the world, you’ll have

friends pretty quickly.”

Giants’ short game helps team take third

Gary Larsen

Freelance Reporter

Highland Park learned

the value of its short game.

The team finished third

in the 12-team Deerfield

Invite Saturday, Sept. 8,

at Twin Orchard Country

Club in Long Grove.

The finish featured a 73

from Judd Moss, who had

one club to thank above all


“My putting was really

good today,” he said. “And

I had a chip-in at (hole) 17.

I was solid off the tee and I

was just really consistent.

Everything was consistent

and the putter was really


Never truly satisfied

though Moss knows he

has more to give at future


“I didn’t finish as strong

as I could have but it was

a good day,” he said.

The Giants also got a

good day’s work from

Max Golding (74), Jared

Grossman (78), and Jake

Pielet (79) to finish with

304 points.

Loyola Academy took

the win at the invite with a

298. New Trier finished in

a close second with a team

score of 299.

Golfers had to contend

with one of the first windy

and cool days of the season

at this year’s Deerfield

Invite, playing at the Twin

Orchard Country Club in

Long Grove.

“A tough day, a lot of

wind, a tough course to

play and you saw some

great scores,” Giants

Coach Paul Harris said. “A

304 was really solid and it

was a nice day overall.

“Max Golding has been

very consistent for us all

year and for Judd and Jake

Pielet to come in with

good scores — it was great

to see them come through

like that.”

The Ramblers Peter Radler

placed eighth as a junior

at last year’s Class 3A

state finals, but he knew

coming into his senior

year that Loyola would

need more from him than

just low scores this season.

“We had a group of established

leaders graduate

so I knew this year it

was going to be my turn,”

Radler said. “I was ready

for it. Golf is such an individual

sport that a lot of

leadership comes off the

course. So that’s where

I’ve tried to help.”

Loyola coach Tim Kane

was happy with what Radler

is providing both on

and off the course this


“He’s a very consistent

player, he’s level-headed,

and he’s not a flashy player

but he does a really nice

job,” Kane said of Radler.

“And he has definitely

stepped up as a senior, and

he’s able to help coach

other players. He has also

become more consistent

as a player. He plays well

consistently and he’s comfortable

playing well.”

Radler shot a 71 to lead

the Ramblers to the team

title in the Deerfield Invite.

“It’s a really tough

course in windy conditions

today, and the kids

grinded out a really good

score,” Kane said. “We

were focused today. They

knew conditions would be

tough and they adjusted.”

Radler’s 71 was a welcome

change for him in

light of years past at the

Deerfield Invite.

“The last couple years

I’ve played in this tournament

I haven’t done so

well, so I came in thinking

‘it’s windy and greens are

fast, so who knows what’s

going to happen?’,” Radler

said. ‘But I made a

couple good putts early

in the round and then I

played well from there.

“The driver wasn’t

very good today but I put

the ball in the right spot

around the greens. And

from there you can make

a bunch of putts as long as

you’re below the hole.”

the season. The Titans came in with

a 4-0-1 record with an impressive

comeback win against St. Patrick

during the Titan Classic to take the

early season tournament. The Giants

entered with a 3-1 record, having lost

to Hersey 1-0 the match prior but

winning Lake Forest’s North Shore

Shootout without losing a game.

Highland Park is looking to compete

in a CSL North where Glenbrook

North has a new roster but

showing it can compete like it has

in the past. GBS is trying to show

that it can compete with the likes of

New Trier and Evanston in the CSL


While the game was a statement

game for the Giants, there’s still

work left to be done according to

the players. Winning the Lake Forest

tournament proved the Giants have

the talent to compete with the best,

but there’s still work left to do for it

all to come together later on in the


“We have a lot of talent,” Zucker

said. “Once we learn how to play

together as a team we’ll really show

our true colors.”

Rolling Meadows firepower too much for Giants

Brittany Kapa, Sports Editor

Highland Park players knew at

some point this season it would

face adversity.

What they didn’t know is in

what quantity it would come in.

The Giants faced their biggest

test of the season Friday, Sept. 7,

at home against non-conference

Rolling Meadows.

It didn’t take much time for the

Mustangs to get in the groove,

and when they did they put the

brakes on HP’s offense and broke

through its defense.

Rolling Meadows took the

Week 3 win in a 56-14 blowout.

The Giants fell to 2-1 on the

season while Rolling Meadows

stayed undefeated.

After Week 2 play, Highland

Park head coach David Lindquist

knew the Mustangs were going

to present a challenge. He wasn’t


“I expected it to be a game that

if we wanted to be competitive

we would have to play fast and

physically, and they played more

fast and physically than we did,”

he said.

Rolling Meadows struck first

with 2 minutes, 30 seconds left

in the first quarter on a 51-yard

touchdown pass.

Tom Motzko found space to

run at the 3:10 mark of the second

quarter, after Rolling Meadows

added two touchdowns, for a

71-yard score. Max Mauer easily

picked up the extra point for HP.

Rolling Meadows didn’t wait

long to strike back. It rapidly

drove down field and scored another

seven points with just 57

seconds left in the half.

With plenty of timeouts taken

during the first half, Lindquist

tried to focus his team on digging

in and working its way out of the

35-7 halftime deficit.

“[I was trying to focus them

on] having pride in themselves

and this town and their families

because when you’re down that

much you need to take it personally

in order to dig yourself out of

Park. Neil Ament/22nd Century Media

that trench,” he said.

But the struggles continued in

the second half, the Giants gave

up 28 points while adding seven

of their own. The second touchdown

came when quarterback

Michael Rooney made a quick

lateral pass to Motzko on Rolling

Meadow’s 15-yard line. Motzko

then threw the ball to teammate

Tyler Lens for the touchdown

with 4:58 left in the third. The

confusion was enough to throw

Rolling Meadow’s defense off it’s

game for a split second.

But Lindquist knows his team

is capable of more.

“We need to figure out how to

respond in a fist fight on the football

field,” he said. “When we do

that we can play pretty damn good

football. Tonight we did not respond

in the way that was favorable

to make this a football game.”

The Giants will be going back

to the basics in the week leading

up to their Week 4 matchup

against Schaumburg.

Lindquist wants to see his defense

work on taking guys down

in the open field and do a better

job of wrapping guys up, all key

components of shutting down a

well-run offense.

There were some bright spots

on defense, despite the loss. Seniors

Kevin Kaufman and Motzko

both recorded tackles for a loss

in key drives during the game.

“I’m not worried,” Lindquist

said. “Teams often don’t go undefeated,

that’s the way it is. We

have to use this as a learning experience

to spring us forward and

do better next week. That’s all we

can focus on.”
